*Third Person*

Izuku ran up many flights of stairs, trailing after his friend who was currently trying to figure out how to get past Tenya. He made it to the room, calling upon the strength of a lion and speed of a cheetah (he's visited many zoos), leaping into action with Ochaco at his heels. They rushed across the room, Tenya trying to capture the two heroes. Izuku picked Ochaco up, tossing her over head as he grabbed hold of Tenya's arm, dragging him down. He kicked Izuku off, jumping back into action as he rushed towards the bomb. He was too late as Ochaco grabbed hold of the bomb.

"The hero team wins!" All Might booming voice echoed around the room from the loud speakers.

Izuku and Ochaco cheered as they high-fived. The trio in the room headed back down to the fuming ash-blonde, untying him before heading back out. They joined the class and All Might in the monitoring room. The next teams, B and D, headed out to the building. Izuku, who kept a notebook in his costume, took it out and and pen. He flipped to a blank page and sat down, staring at the screens expectantly. Ochaco and Tenya turned to Katsuki who shook his head with a sigh.

The fights between the hero teams and villain teams came to an end, the end of class closing in fast. All Might dismissed his class, heading off for the teachers lounge as the students left to the lockers. They changed out of their costumes and back into their formal uniforms, heading out to lunch as the ringing of the bell blared throughout the school. Clusters of students left classrooms, grouping up with their friends as they chattered all the way down to the cafeteria.

'That was so much fun! I can't wait for our next hero lesson. I really want to learn some different techniques and use my quirk more efficiently.' Izuku signed out to his friends, a huge smile spreading across his face.

"Yeah! I'm so excited! And I can't believe All Might is teaching us heroics! Isn't that awesome?!" Ochaco exclaimed, fist pumping the air as she jumped around.

They entered the cafeteria, going into the growing lunch line and buying their food. They found a table and sat down, piratically inhaling their food as hunger gripped at their stomachs.

'This is so good!' Izuku signed happily before shoving the rest of the food into his mouth. 'I wish I had this more often. So good!'

"Definitely! Man. If only the food in Junior were this good. Then I'd buy my lunch more often." Ochaco agreed, nodding eagerly.

"I've been meaning to ask this for awhile now, but, what makes you two strive to become heroes?" Tenya asked, looking across his friends faces. "I'm following in my brother's footsteps and am hoping to become a hero just like him."

"So cool! But, you guys may see my reason as selfish," Ochaco replied, scratching the back of her neck sheepishly before being told to go on. "I'm really in it for the money. But! My reasoning is that, I want to help my parents. They're in dept right now and are working many different jobs just to fund me for school. I want to repay them. But, they don't make me help around the house. Even if I ask to help, they refuse. So I want to become a hero for money to help my parents in their struggles!"

'That isn't selfish. You're doing it to help your parents. There are definitely more selfish reasons then that. You just want to help.' Izuku signed out, placing a hand over Ochaco's as she huffed out a sigh.

"I guess. But, to some it seems selfish." Ochaco murmured, placing an elbow on the table and leaned her head on her hand.

"If they think that's selfish, then they don't know the true meaning of heroism!" Tenya declared, waving his arms in his usual robotic motion. "Heroes are here to save people and help them. You wish to just help your parents. There is nothing wrong with that."

A small smile broke out on Ochaco's face as she thanked the two. The day went on as normal till the end of the day. As all the students left, Izuku headed down to the teachers lounge. He found Shouta sitting on an ocean blue lounge, marking some work from one of his other classes. He heard the door opening and turned to Izuku, a small smile forming on his face. He called him over, turning back to his work with a quiet sigh. Izuku sat down next to him, placing a hand on his shoulder.

"Do you want to go home with me or by yourself?" He asked, turning to his 'son'.

'I'd like to go with you. I don't want to risk being spotted again.' Izuku signed out, his lips forming a thin line.

"Alright. Why not lay down over there? I may be awhile," Aizawa suggested, pointing to the lounge seated alongside the cream coloured wall. "I'll wake you up when I'm done. But don't expect that to be anytime soon."

Izuku nodded with a smile, walking over to the lounge and laying down. He placed the pillows that decorated the cushions under his head. He soon fell asleep, chest rising and falling with each breath he took. Aizawa stood up, grabbed a blanket from the pile in the room's corner, draping it over Izuku's sleeping form before heading back to his work.
