Why I'll Be a Hero - A Bakugo Katsuki X Read...
"Nope, that's not it," I say, popping the 'P.' Everyone turns to me, and all eyes are on me in an instant. I practically wilt a bit under their gazes.
"Then, why do you want to become a hero, (Y/n)~chan?" Kirishima asks me, eyes sparkling curiously.
I let out a soft laugh, almost silent, before I answer. "I don't really care about the fame, and glory, and fortune, and all that. And I'm not really looking to prove myself to anyone, either." A pair of crimson eyes meet my own and stare for a minute, before tearing themselves away, underlined by a slight pink blush.
"I want to become a hero to save people, to show people that, in dark times, sometimes a single candle can light up an entire room. I want to protect those who can't protect themselves. People get kidnapped, raped, and murdered in alleyways by busy streets, but nobody bats an eye, no one even notices a thing. They may hear a scream, but with the Symbol of Peace looking out for them, they just stay optimistic. 'Oh, it's just some kids playing games with their quirks. We've got nothing to fear!'"
A single tear silently forms in my eye before making its way down my cheek. A couple gasps and some shocked chatter fills the room.
I look down, and my voice sounds, barely above a whisper.
"I don't want anyone to go through the same things that I did. That's why I'll become a hero."
