All Might's reaction to a student calling him dad, and admitting that they see him in a fatherly way, please?
My heart breaks for these types of things dude
| All Might
The hallways after school had ended was always a peaceful feeling for Toshinori. The silence was calming. Always a way for him to focus his thoughts on the world around him. His hero days have been over for some time. He was a teacher now. A teacher at Yuuei Academy. Was he content with this new lifestyle change? Yes, incredibly so, he could watch the growth of the new hero age.
All Might was a trusted man that many good find solace in. You did. That’s why you accidently blurted out “Sure thing dad.” You waved as you started to walked away but froze in mid step. Cold sweat ran down your temple as your hand fell to your side. Holy shit. It just got awkward. Both of you fell silent and didn’t know what to do.
All Might’s smile slipped off his face as his black scelera and neon blue eyes met yours. He paused and waited for you to calm down from that slightly embarrassing moment.
“I um,…I sorta see you as a father figure.” You confessed as your fingers played with the end of your uniform shirt. A sign of nervousness of the possible outcomes in this scenario. You explained to All Might why you saw him in such a way; his smile, his attitude, how he seemed to radiate such safety and confidence, as well as seemed to be so approachable that he made you want to become a hero in the first place.
Toshinori listed carefully to your reasoning without judgement of your thoughts. He felt flattered and happy to even impact any student of his in such a way. It was warm. This feeling was so warm and had a pulse. It was heartbeat that he would keep guarded for you. Afterall, you were going to become a child figure to him soon, as were all his students in different ways. Hopefully you wouldn’t mind Izuku for a brother.
Gulping, you studied his impassive face. Why the hell did you think it was a good idea to even let those words slip from your mouth. Now he probably thought that you were weird and would ignore you. Who were you kidding? You wouldn’t put it past him if he di-
“Thank you.” Toshinori stated, slightly hesitant, patting your head cautiously. He crouched down to get closer to your level, “I’m honored that you would think of me in such a way.” The fear vanished from your eyes and with it the tension in the air and your posture. Good, you were relaxing. “Can you do me a favor kid?” You nodded enthusiastically, “Can you keep smiling for me?” The sincerity in his smile made you feel safe once more.
In all honesty, he felt honored and a sudden surge of happiness to be seen in such a way by you, or anyone else for that matter, and he wouldn’t allow you to become fearful of him. The request he made of you, it seems stupid now that he put some thought into it but seeing your face light it. Maybe it wasn’t as ridiculous as he thought. All he wanted was to see you smile.
“I’ll see you tomorrow kid, just get home safely and don’t forget your homework.” He waved at you as you trekked your way home.
You couldn’t believe your luck! How did you even get away with that? How was he even ok with you calling him dad? You didn’t know but you were thankful. The smile stretched across your face, all throughout dinner without caring for the snark of your sibling, and until you went to bed.
Tomorrow, you were gonna say hello to All Might- well your hero dad. It was gonna be amazing.
