Izuku isn’t naïve, for all that he still wants to be a hero. He’s done his research, he’s lived with his mother day in and day out, and a part of him knows. Even if he doesn’t think he could say it out loud, he knows.
His mother isn’t going to live forever. Kaa-san loves him more than anything in the world, and he does her, and he never wants to hurt her. So he tucks her back into bed, cleans up the dishes, does his homework, and he waits.
Because he’s living for her. For now, he has to live.
A story in which Midoriya Inko is terminally ill, and becoming a hero isn't the hardest thing Izuku has ever done.
