“Please, I do not have time for all of these questions!” I said, shoving my way through the crowd of reporters. Most of them were about how it felt to be a real hero, and honestly… there isn’t an answer for that.
As I walked away, hearing the voices focus on Uravity, I feel a buzz. A call from… I check my phone. Inko? We haven’t talked since the Class 1-A graduation.
I decide to answer. What’s the worst that could happen? “Todoroki?! Oh thank Gods, please help me!” Inko cried. I could feel her tears through the phone. “Ms. Midoriya? What happened?! What going on?” I asked.
“Izuku’s in the hospital.” My eyes widened. How long had it been since I talked to him? “Okay, which one?” I responded, getting my keys and getting into the car. “Tsumarnashi Hospital,” was the only response I needed.
I started driving, and texted in the Hero group chat Denki insisted we all be in.
Icyhot- midoriya’s in the hospital.
boom boom man- what the hell?!
we all float- which one?!
Creati- Is he okay?!
I knew more messages were there, but I didnt want to read them.
Icyhot- Tsumarnashi. Inko called me.
we all float- On my way!
Kermit- I’m coming too.
emo bird- I’ll be there in thirty minutes.
Icyhot- see you there.
Walking through the hospital, I find Inko bawling in the waiting room with Mitsuki. “Ms. Midoriya? Do you need help?” She turned to me and began sobbing as she hugged me.
“It’s hard for her right now. Inko, it’s okay…” Mitsuki attempted to comfort her before we all heard an explosion and footsteps.
“What the hell is going on?!” Bakugou yelled, making Inko cry more. Mitsuki looked at him with a death glare as she comforted the sobbing woman. His eyes softened.
“He’s- oh my god- he tried to kill himself!” Mee and Bakugou froze. That’s not what Midoriya would do…
2 hours later…
By then Ochako, Bakugou, Tenya, Tsuyu, and myself were there. Momo and Fumikage both had on-the-spot interviews, and everyone else we hadn’t heard from.
We all had been reminiscing about what it was like in Class 1-A, when we heard a door open. “How is he?” Inko asked, having been most likely exhausted from crying.
“She’s doing alright, she’s also awake, if you would like to see her, Ms. Midoriya.” Inko nodded, and left with the nurse.
We were all confused and relieved. Ochako was the first to speak after the nurse left. “She/Her?” We all looked at Mitsuki, but she wasn’t there. When had she left..?
We didn’t have much time to ponder before the nurse came in again. “Ms. Midoriya said you few could see her- him, if you’d like.” We all got up and followed her to his room- room 597, to be exact.
We entered the room, and- oh my god.
His eyebags rivaled Shinsou’s from when we were in U.A. (Denki forced a better sleep schedule on them after they got married) and he looked like skin and bones while looking out the window.
“Izuku…?” Ochako asked, making slow movements toward him, seeing as his eyes were nearly filled with pure fear.
“…” He said nothing, but looked at her as if she were about to hurt him. “She- He’s very anxious about everything. He hasn’t said anything since he was conscious.” The nurse informed us.
“Deku?” Bakugou said, looking at him in- is that sadness? He was never empathetic before… Izuku looked at him in realization.
He began pointing at him. “Bakugo,” He moved his finger to me, “Todoroki,” then he did it for everyone there.
He began crying, just like Inko had.
