Oh goodness, I got a request for a really sad Tadashi fic, and I’m working on it right now and it’s making my want to freaking cry! I’ve written the beginning intro-ish part and that’s what I’m posting now. It’s not sad yet, but it gets really sad in the next part.
“Hey, is anyone sitting here?” you ask the cute Asian boy,
indicating to the empty seat at the lab table.
He looks up at you and smiles politely, “No, it’s all
You find yourself smiling back, “Thanks,” you say as you
set your backpack on the ground and take a seat.
The professor soon walks into the room and promptly
begins class. “Alright, everyone,
welcome to the lab portion of Biology 240. You may want to start getting to know the
person sitting next to you, as they are going to be your lab partner for the
rest on the semester. Instructions for the first lab are on the
table, you may begin.”
“He’s not one for introductions, is he?” you say in a
slightly joking manner.
The boy laughs, “I guess not. I’m Tadashi, by the way,” he tells you
offering his hand.
You take it and shake in greeting, “(Name), it’s nice to
“You too. I read
through the lab yesterday, on the online class forum, it’s pretty straight
forward,” he says, grabbing the paper from the middle of the table.
“Oh no, you’re one of those over achievers, aren’t you?”
you groan out, jokingly again.
He chuckles, “Why is that a bad thing?”
You smile, “It’s not, I’m just going to have to do some
more work to be able to keep up with you.”
You grab the other provided paper and read through it quickly.
Tadashi grins, “You’ll be thanking me later.”
“I probably will,” you agree. “But it’ll still suck.”
He laughs, “Well, if we’re going to be stuck with each
other for the rest of the semester, maybe we should get to know each other a
You nod, “Okay. To
make it more interesting, we should play two truths and a lie, and you have to
try to guess which one is the lie.”
“Alright. My full
name is Tadashi Hamada, I have a younger brother and I drive a car.”
“Well, your notebook has your name written up at the top,
so that one’s definitely true. You do
kind of look like the older brother type, so I’m gonna say the car thing is a
He laughs, “Older brother is a type? And yes, I don’t drive a car, I’ve got a
You laugh as well, “I guess it is now. And that’s pretty cool, I’ve never met anyone
that drives one of those. Okay, um… I
love to read, I still watch Disney movies and I’ve been to Hawaii.”
“You do look like the bookworm type that watches Disney
movies, so I’m guessing you’ve never been to Hawaii?”
You laugh at his explanation, “Wow, is it really that obvious?”
He chuckles, “Only a little.”
The two of you continue to play the game as you work on
your lab. You have a lot of fun getting
to know each other, and you both agree to sit with each other in the big
lecture hall for class later in the week.
Your two truths and a lie game becomes a sort of ritual
between the two of you. The semester
passes and you both manage to get into the robotics lab, Tadashi for his
proposal on Baymax, and you for your water adapted circuitry system.
You walk down the hallway in the morning, seeing that
Tadashi’s door is already open. You
knock against the glass of his door as you enter. “Morning, Tadashi,” you greet.
He looks up from his seated position at his desk and
smiles, “Good morning (Name).”
“So, I had an awesome dream last night, I ate cereal for
breakfast and I saw a unicorn on the way to school today,” you tell him leaning
your hip against his desk as you stand next to him.
He rolls his eyes with a smile, “Well obviously the
unicorn thing is a lie.”
“Wrong!” you laugh.
“I saw a billboard for that new Unicorn Princess movie thing that’s
coming out next month. I actually had a
bagel for breakfast,” you smile cheekily down at him.
He chuckles and shakes his head at you, “What was your
“There was a talking goldfish. His name was Toby.”
He gives you an amused look before turning back to his
You nudge his knee with your leg, “It’s your turn.”
“I know, I’m thinking…” he stalls. “I had a cup of coffee this morning, Hiro
snored last night and…” he pauses and seems to think about his choice of words
for a moment before he looks up at you, a cautious, yet hopeful look in his
eyes, “I want you to go on a date with me this Friday.”
Your eyes widen in shock and you feel your cheeks burn,
not expecting him to say that. “Oh…”
your heart begins to pound. “Well, I
hope that last one isn’t the lie, or else I’m going to sound like an idiot,
because I want to go on a date with you too.”
Tadashi smiles in relief, “It wasn’t, I had tea this
And just like that, the two of you started dating.
