{} Y/N's POV {}

I don't remember what happened exactly, but I do remember the immense amount pain. I swear to god, if this is how I die...hell no. Hell no. HELL NO! What the hell am I saying? I am __Y/N_L/N__, the daughter of __(Mother's Hero Name)__ and __(Father's Hero Name). I am not going to die because some little bird bitch threw me at a wall. What would that say about me? I am no weakling. I refuse for death to claim me. Pack your bags Mr. Grim Reaper, you're not getting anything from me -- not today.

With my determination, the light replaced the darkness. My heavy eyelids slowly opened revealing a bright, white hospital room. I still felt as though I was recently thrown in a blender, but better injured than dead, right? Even though I must've been unconscious for god knows how long, I was incredibly drowsy. My battle with death itself has been quite exhausting to say the least. As soon as my eyes adjusted to the light in the room, I noticed: my parents asleep on a couch, plenty of letters and gifts from my classmates, all sorts of tubes and wires coming in and out of me, and Shouto? What is he doing here? Ugh, how long have I been in the hospital? I look back at my parents on the couch, my mother's eyes widened when we made eye contact.

"__(Father's First Name)__, she's awake! Y/N's awake!" she yells almost in tears as she runs to my side. I smile as she gently strokes my cheeks and kisses my forehead. Tears were flowing down her face by the gallon.

"M..mum, please don't cry. I promise I'm okay." I say quietly accompanied with a small laugh. My father jumps next to my mother once he hears my near-inaudible voice.

"Y-Y/N, you had us so worried! We heard what you did at the OSJ...we're so proud of you. You're a real hero!" he smiled, "You knew the risks, but you didn't care as long as it meant that your classmates might be safe." I smiled at his response, I expected for him to freak out and get upset at my recklessness.

"Thank you, father" I smiled.

"However, you're still my little girl. So please, save me the heart attack and try not to do anything like that again...unless it's absolutely necessary." he responds almost immediately.

"Gotcha. I promise." I smiled at my father and then back at my mother. That's when I noticed the boy who was originally in deep sleep, staring at me with wide eyes from across the room.

"Y-Y/N?" he whimpered. My parents looked at him, then at each other and nodded.

"Honey, we're just going to the nearest Starbucks for a quick coffee. We'll leave you two alone." smiled my mother while my father rolled his eyes in annoyance. They both kissed my head goodbye and my father made sure to give Shouto a dirty look before exiting.

{} SHOUTO's POV {}

I shivered at the look given to me by Y/N's father, but it was expected. It's the quite simply the most "fatherly" thing he could do regarding a boy and his only daughter. As soon as the door closed, I looked back up at her. It's been 3 days. It may not seem long, but it felt like an eternity not having anyone to talk to. I gather the courage to get up and walk to her side, pulling up a chair to sit in. I smile at her as I sit down, and using even more of my courage I reach for hand and wrap mine in it. I stare at our intertwined fingers for a moment until finally breaking the silence:

"I was so worried."

"I'm sorry, It's my fault for being reckless." she responds. How can she blame herself?

"Don't apologize, I should've reacted faster. If I would've grabbed you or done anything, then nothing would've happened. But what did I do? I froze." I said, angry at myself.

"Nonsense! You weren't the dumbass who decided to run towards a clearly dangerous creature that All Might himself struggled with!" she yelled. My grasp around her hand tightened as I stared at her in awe.

"You're not a 'dumbass,' never say that again."

"Then what else would I be?"

"A hero." she looked at me, surprised. "You didn't care about what happened to you, rather what would happen to others if you did nothing. That's about the most heroic and selfless thing I've witnessed." her awestruck expression was still on her face.

"R-really?"

"Yes." I smiled, and she returned the favor. "Oh, and when you're finally discharged I need to tell you something important at some point, okay?"

"Okay." she smiled.

"But, you need to promise me that it won't ruin our friendship alright? I don't have anyone else, and I would hate to lose you."

"What? Shouto, what is it?"

"You'll need to wait, but promise me."

"Okay, I promise." she smiled nervously at me.

{} Y/N's POV {}

Ruin our friendship? What could possibly do something like that?
