My Number 1 Hero
~Part 1~ Songs: “House Key”- Scott Helman, “Tuesdays”-Jake Scott
I couldn’t even begin to express how happy I was as I wrapped my arms around Kiri. Tears came pouring out of my eyes and my body was still trembling. Of course we hinted at the idea of marriage, but for him to actually say yes to me?! I grabbed him tightly as he tackled me to the floor, since I was already in the typical proposing pose it was easy to brace myself from the full force of my shitty-haired-now-fiancé.
“God I was so worried you weren’t going to say yes, I mean..- “
“Wait, Baku... actually, I need to ask you something first..”
My heart stopped as he untangled himself from my arms to kneel across me. His face was red and wet from the tears, I could tell his mind was racing. I reached out to touch his shoulder to comfort him. Please God don’t let him change his mind, I don’t know what I’d do if he ever did...
“Bakugo-“ Kiri said with hesitation. His eyes were lowered and he was fiddling with his shirt sleeve.
....”Yes dear?” I said almost too quietly. I watched him carefully, hopping my heart would begin to work again. Each passing second felt like years for my heart and overactive thoughts.
“Will you marry me?” He asked sternly.
His warm ember red eyes looking intently into mine. His body posture was more confident, sturdy. He grabbed my hand and looked as though he was preparing himself for a battle. But I don’t understand—
“-uhm...I just..-“ I tried to find the words. Did this nerd really not understand what just happened?
“I know you just proposed!” But- “ he took a deep breath and clutched my hand while giving me a brave smile.
“Baku.. I want to know if you will allow me to remain by your side for the rest of our lives. I want to know if you will allow me to love all of you. Let me love you on the late nights our pro hero shifts don’t line up for our date nights, let me love you when you are getting annoyed at my shitty hair as you try to tame it in the mornings, let me love you as you grow stronger as the number 1 hero. Let me love you for the rest of my life because you are my number 1 hero. After that day back in high school”- I scooted closer holding his hand, I noticed the tears falling down his face- “the day I reached out for you after the villains, the day we were there for each other without hesitation.”
Kiri began to laugh quietly and started to sniffle-God I love this man-
“That is the day we became equals. Today is the day I want to ask the same question so you know whole heartily how ready I am. I would be honored to be by your side for forever and a day, Katsuki Bakugo?”
“Forever and a day, huh?” I asked with a smirk.
Kiri playfully punched me as he wiped the tears from his face,
“I loved you on that day, I love you today, I always have and I always will Eijiro Kirishima. We are in this together. No matter what comes our way- whether it be a villain, your terrible cooking, or simple old age- we will fight it together. I promise that our future will be as bright as fire because you will be in it. I cannot wait to call you my husband and for us to go out together”- Kiri looked at me taken back- “I think its time, I promise that we wont hide anymore, I simply cant. I cant lie to anyone else about where my happiness comes from. Our relationship isn’t a sign of lacking masculinity -You are my strength and ill kill anyone that says otherwise”.
Kiri lunged into my lap, wrapping his arms around my neck with that big fang filled smile of his. I hugged him tightly.
“Kiri..” I whispered softly.
“Yes, darling?” He replied nuzzling into my neck even further. His lips pressing against my skin with soft tenderness.
“You are my number one hero, for forever and a day Kirishima.” I said kissing the top of his head.
