he watched you work over a few problems, correcting you as you make mistakes popped up. he had a way of explaining this that just made sense. after a while you were out of homework to work on, the silence settling between both as you packed up your books for class the next day.
"thank you for helping me todoroki-kun i don't think i could've finished it without you." you turned towards him, offering him a small smile. "i enjoyed helping you, thank you for letting me." he returned the smile, cuckling lightly.
your lips parted slightly blinking slightly at the sight before you. you were in awe, not only had you seen him smile twice in one night but that was the first time you had heard him laugh as well. heat blossomed up on your cheeks as you gawked at the now very confused boy in front of you.
todoroki reached out, palming your face as if if was a ball. "i think your sunburn is getting worse. it's getting redder." "this isn't the sunburn.." your words were muddled by the hand over your face, the concerned look in his eyes visible through his fingers.
he pulled back, clearly flustered by the mistake. "o-oh, i'm sorry." he stuttered out, avoiding the amused look on your face. you reached for his right hand, bringing it back up to your cheek. "it's okay i don't mind."
he chewed on the inside of his ip, lost in thought as he searched your eyes. he had never been good with social cues, he could blame that on his father. but right now, it felt a lot like what he thought reciprocated feelings would be like. he ran his thumb over your cheek, wishing his other hand was just as cold.
you looked down at his left hand, his fist clenched around the fabric of his sweatpants. you reached down, pulling it away from it's grip and up to the other side of your face. he was hesitant to touch you wit it. the heat from it was sure to cause you irritation. that's what it always caused for him.
he ghosted the tis over your cheek, testing the waters. he watched for uncertainty. when he saw none he closed the gap, letting the reservations pass as the anxiety melt out out of him. you were warm, just like hi. he had felt it on multiple occasions. the radiating head he cold feel just from being next to you.
he liked it, you were like the sun to him. that little bit of warmth kept him going most days, but he was getting addicted. but what would more feel like? you could see from the look in his eyes that he was debating something. weighing the options in front of him.
you reached out cupping his cheeks with your own hands. you ran your thumb over the bottom of his scar, his skin soft as it gave way to the spot pressure fo your fingers. he relaxed into your touch, whatever had been plaguing his thoughts was no more. "todoroki.."
he hummed in repy, his eyes still closed. "can i kiss you?" he opened his eyes, giving you a skeptical look. he opened his mouth to speak before shutting it again. shaking his head he let out a soft chuckle. he leaned in, brushing his lips over your own. "i should have asked you that."
hs lips met your own, molding the shape of the smile that tugged at the corners. his were warm, the temperature between hot and cold. he lingered for a moment, extending the duration of the moment. no one wanted to pull away, but the need to breathe was bubbling up.
you stared at him breathlessly, speechless as yo processed the lasting heat on your lips. "todoroki, i.." he cut you off. "i can stay a bit longer if you want. you're still pretty warm." he gave you a shy smile, taking your hand in his own. you smiled brightly, squeezing his hand in yours, "i would like that."
