I'm only happy when it rains

I'm only happy when it's complicated

And though I know you can't appreciate it

I'm only happy when it rains

Day 67 & 68 - 1:26 PM

Music - Track 5 - Only Happy When It Rains - Garbage

Kirishima nudges your shoulder from the couch with his foot, startling you from the warm and happy memories of your first few days at the cabin. "Welcome back." He grins at you. "Where did you go in that pretty head of yours?"

You blush, but answer honestly. "Just remembering the first few days at Bakugou's cabin."

Kirishima nods, a nostalgic smile spreading across his face. "Maybe one day we can go back."

Bakugou grunts in agreement from the kitchen table. "We will. Just as soon as we find Deku and get this shit taken care of."

You look up at Bakugou and smirk as his eyes meet yours. "You miss it, too?"

"'Course I do. I'd rather be stuck there with you two idiots than out here." He says without hesitation. If you had blinked, you'd have missed the tinge of pink coating his cheeks and the tops of his ears. It was there for just a brief moment. Seems like he's having the same thoughts as me and Kirishima.

After you all finish eating, Kirishima stands up and slowly stretches. You join him, a yawn escaping you. When you look over at Bakugou, he has his map spread across the small kitchen table, his fingers tracing paths to the radio tower. You walk to the table and look over his shoulder. "How are we doing, boss?" You ask playfully. You used to call him boss all the time at the agency which really got on his nerves.

He rolls his eyes at you, but doesn't bother looking up. "I'm not your boss anymore. Are you ever going to stop calling me that?"

You shook your head. "Never. But seriously, where are we headed next?"

Bakugou points at the map to the street the house is on. "We're here. There's nothing but fields and farmland between here and the next city though. Hopefully we can find shelter there. If not, we have the tent." He ignores your loud groan and continues. "We're making good time, all things considered. We should reach the radio tower in a few days at the most."

Kirishima grins at you. "Don't wanna sleep in a tent, babe?"

You shoot a glare at him and pout jokingly. "Shush."

Bakugou shakes his head at the two of you. He stands up and packs away the few bits left over from lunch while you and Kirishima gather your things. He slings his bag over his shoulder and turns to you and Kirishima. "We should get moving before it gets any later. We need to find a safe place to sleep for the night."

The three of you quietly exit the house the same way you came in. You place your hand on the window sill as you wish the family inside peace. Bakugou touches your hand gently, and your eyes meet briefly. A silent conversation of grief and understanding passes between the two of you before you both turn to catch up with Kirishima. Kirishima leads at the front, you in the middle, while Bakugou trails a bit behind you, keeping you protected. It's a formation that comes naturally now.

Once you're out of the suburbs and walking down a long stretch of highway a couple of hours later, the sun has begun its journey towards sunset. You have about three hours of light left before you absolutely have to find shelter. With your earbuds back in, you take some time to look at your surroundings. Bakugou was right about the fields and farmland... it's all you can see for miles. Looks like you might have to sleep in that tent tonight with the creepy crawlies. A hero who is scared of snakes and bugs? It could only be you.
