Call Me Darling

Chapter Text

"Come closer, darling, let's stay cool today."

"Ah, I thought I'd find you here, darling."

You weren't even bothered to check who entered your dorm room, but you knew that clear voice so well.

"Sorry, Shoto," you managed a short reply. You were spread on your bed in a loose shirt and pink boxer shorts. The light-coloured curtains were drawn open, but the windows were closed. Despite the air conditioning cranked up, it didn't help that today was one of those arid weekend afternoons that made you feel stuffy and heavy and absolutely lazy.

"I sent you a message," Todoroki Shoto, one of the best young heroes in the making, who also happened to be your dearly beloved boyfriend, made his way into your dorm room. You felt the bed shift as he sat down beside you.

"Sorry..." You lazily reached for your phone on your bedside drawer. "It's just... Too hot to even move!"

"I see," came a short reply. "Is there anything I can do to ease your discomfort?"

"Do you wanna build a snowman?" You joked, sitting up to meet his gaze. He looked like he was dressed to go out with his light blue dress shirt and dark pants. "I'm glad you're here."

Todoroki gave you a small smile before reaching out for your cheek with his right hand, the coolness of his touch still a little surprising.

"Shoto, w-would you..." You raised your arms and playfully opened and closed your hands. "Would you like to cuddle?"

"Isn't it a little too hot for cuddling, darling?"

A pout graced your face. " N-Not if I'm only hugging your right side!"

"What a selfish girlfriend," he chuckled. "I'll forgive you even though you forgot that we were supposed to go out today, darling."

You froze on the spot and felt your face heat up when he started to remove his dress shirt. "O-Oi! Wh-What are you doing?!"

He had an inner shirt, much to your relief, and he made his way beside you, lying down rather comfortably on his back before beckoning you to crash into him as well. He dropped his right arm and patted the light-coloured sheets.


He was still grinning. "Come closer, darling, let's stay cool today."
