“I’m not good enough for you.” Scenarios for Todoroki and Midoriya not feeling they worth fro everything that their s/o has been through, because of them,
You had a hard time opening your eyes. The bright lights of the street hurt and you took a while to completely get over it. Your whole body felt sore while you tried to turn your head to the sides.
“Wh-” Your voice faltered when your eyes fell on Todoroki.
He lied stiff on the ground next to you, blood dripping from his arms and forehead. Then you remembered everything.
You had been assigned to catch this villain with Todoroki but they were stronger than anything you had encountered before. You had felt so scared while Todoroki protected you from whatever attacks the villain threw at you.
Before running to Todoroki, you made sure to look around to see if they weren’t near to stop you. But you saw them chained to a lamp post, unconscious. All Might stood next to him.
“We need to get him to the hospital!” You yelled at your former teacher, pointing at Todoroki. “PLEASE!”
You had been admitted into a room once you got to the hospital took. You had a deep cut on your back but that was the most damage you took. Todoroki was way worse.
“Just… tell me he’s going to be alright.” You asked the nurse, voice breaking. “Please.”
“We…” The nurse pitied you enough to make it harder for her to speak. “We have to see his progress. But you can visit him if you’d like.”
“Yes, please.” You nodded as she walked you to Todoroki’s room.
He had bandages wrapped around his head and biceps. One of his eyes was swollen and purple bruises were all over his legs.
You felt your heart breaking at the sight of it.
“Y/N…” Todokori took notice of you standing by the door.
“Shoutou-kun…” You walked to him and took his hand in yours.
He didn’t let you hold on to it for too long.
“I’m… I’m not good enough for you.” He suddenly said, catching you off guard.
“What…” You were genuinely confused. “What are you talking about?”
“You don’t deserve to have to live like this.” He answered, avoiding your steady deep gaze. “You should do something else. Be an artist, an accountant, a teacher… whatever you want to be, as long as it doesn’t involve me being around you.”
“Shoutou, you’re not…” You refused to believe he was actually trying to break up with you over that. “Scratch that. I am not going to leave you.”
“Y/N… you can’t go through all of this for me, every time.” He argued.
“First of all, it’s not because of you, mr. Inflated Ego.” You protested. “I have wanted to be a hero since understood what they did, that was way before I even met you. And second of all, I love you. Okay? I. Love. You. I’m not going to let you push me aside because you feel guilty. I put myself into these situations, not you. So you have to put up with me, for a long time.”
Todoroki finally met you in the eyes, reaching for you hand which was still resting on his bed. “How on Earth did I get so lucky?”
Midoriya had been acting strange around you for a couple of days now. He was jumpy whenever you appeared without notice and he avoided being alone with you, every chance he got.
“Uraraka-san.” You called his friend at lunch. “Can I-”
“You’re going to ask about Deku.” Uraraka affirmed.
“Yes.” You looked at her, defeated. “What’s going on with him? He won’t tell me anything anymore, and I’m worried. Did I do something wrong? Why is he avoiding me like his life depended on it?”
Uraraka shot you a look that made you think she only had half answers.
“He… has mumbled a thing or two when he thought I wasn’t noticing. I don’t think it’s anything you did, but something he felt he did. I don’t know what, all I know is that Deku… sometimes he thinks too logically. Way too much brain and not enough heart.” She said, making you get another hundred questions.
“I…” You sighed, not wanting to bother her anymore. “Thanks.”
You couldn’t do nothing. Especially if what Uraraka said was true and Deku felt like he did something wrong. He didn’t. He never does!
You decided to swing by his house after school. His mom opened the door for you and hugged you close. You had a good relationship with her.
“Is Midoriya home yet?” You asked, stepping inside as Inko closed the door behind you.
“Yes dear.” She replied. “He’s in his room.”
“Can I-” Inko cut you midsentence.
“Of course!” She said. “Go, go.”
You smiled at her kindly and went to knock at your boyfriend’s door.
“Mom, i’m studying.” He said loud enough for it to reach anyone behind the wooden door.
“Not your mom, Deku.” You said back.
Silence filled the hair, making you be acutely aware of your own breathing and the muscles of your face moving to make a frown of impatience. An entire minute seemed to go by before Midoriya decided to open the door.
You stared at him, hoping he’d speak first. Instead, he simply stepped aside to let you into his room.
Closing the door behind him, he never met your eyes. He sat down on his bed and silence reigned agin.
“Speak!” You pleaded after a while. “Say something, tell me what’s wrong!”
“Y/N… I can’t…” He struggled. “I’m not good enough for you.”
You wanted to laugh at the absurdity of the statement. Midoriya? Not good enough for you? He was the best there even was. For you, anyway. You couldn’t believe the words he said.
“What’s this all of a sudden?” You questioned. “Deku, why are you saying this?”
“It’s just the truth. You had to go through so much for me and I don’t think… I don’t think it’s worth it. Not if you’re life’s on the line.” He looked up at you, still not really seeing you eye to eye.
“Oh of course”. You nodded sarcastically. “Cause you never go through nothing for me? You’re guy who got in the way massive blast directed at me, Deku! You’re the guy who’s saving my life at all changes he gets. You are the guy who beats the crap outta anyone who lays a finger on me and then get’s beaten the crap outta of in return. How’s that fair huh?”
“I didn’t…” His words faded in thin air. “Y/N it still…”
“You’re gonna have to deal with this.” You interrupted him. “If I can handle seeing you in the hospital every week, you can handle me occasionally getting hurt to avoid you dying. I’m staying. And I hope you’re too.”
You noticed all the fight in Midoriya’s eyes being eased away by your words. You sighed in relief.
“I am.” He said, hugging you close. “I’ll never think about this, ever again.”
You grabbed on of his arms, squeezing. “Thank you.”
