Izuku's Birthday and he is officially 10
Ao3 *** First *** Previous
The day after meeting my father was my tenth birthday. Dad had to leave for the day, but he promised that afterwards we would celebrate. Today it was just Mama and me.
“What would you like as a present this year Izu?” Mama asked as we entered a huge toy store.
That was when Izuku saw a little boy and his mother, and he couldn’t believe his luck. Kachan was here! Why? Why now? Why today? Izuku could not believe his luck. Don’t look this way. Please! To late the blonde red eyed child turned around and saw Izuku. The child tugged his mother’s arm and they both headed towards them Izuku immediately put a smile on and said in a somewhat happy tone “Hi Kachan. Hi Auntie Mitsuki.”
“How are you Mitsuki? Hello there Katsuki.” Mama greeted the two and they talked a bit. Kachan kept glaring at me but I didn’t let it bother me. I was too exited for tomorrow. Dada and I are going to spend all day together and dealing with Kachan is nothing compared to that.
Mama and auntie were talking so I started to look around the store not far from mama. I was holding a All Might travel bag when I heard a small laugh behind me. I knew it was Kachan only he seemed to give off a smug aura that was a bright red. “You know you are such a cry baby Deku. I bet if All Might ever met you, he would laugh” after that Kachan began laughing, “All Might would never pay attention to a Deku” I was getting mad. Toshi would never do that, my dad would not laugh at some one for being scared he always comforted everyone he has saved.
It took all of my will power to not scream at Kachan. I took a deep breath and counted 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and let it out as I did, I thought calm thoughts a calmed my aura and it spread around me. “I feel sorry for you if you think that way Kachan” my voice was so even that Kachan’s aura seemed to shutter scared and then calm. Kachan stood there with his mouth open as I went back to mama. I tugged on mama’s sleeve to not speak over her or Auntie, when she looked at me, I held up the bag and said, “I found something Mama!” I smiled genuinely for the first time since seeing Kachan.
“Well, it seems like we are ready to check out. Bye Mitsuki.” Mama waved and I turned and waved I couldn’t help but see the uncertain way Kachan was staring at me, this wasn’t odd at school we always competed with each other, he was probably thinking of how to win next time. Mama chuckled “This is perfect” she looked at me suspiciously “were you using your quirk while Mitsuki and I were talking?”
“No! I wasn’t mama I promise” I jumped as if I was being electrocuted. I began to blush because I just used the quirk, she was accusing me of using.
Izuku and I went home after spending the day out. I went to the kitchen and began dinner.
“Mama?” I nearly jumped. Izuku was usually talking and was never quiet. When he was silent, he almost seemed to not make a sound and would almost disappear if you didn’t have eyes on him. Probably a result if his quirk or at least one of them.
“Yes Izuku” I was practically clutching my chest, but I noticed why he seemed to be unnaturally unlike himself. He was looking at the floor fumbling with his hands.
“Mama I want to tell dad about my quirk.”
Why does he want to tell Hisashi? “I don’t know if that is the best idea” now it was my turn to be uncomfortable. But to my surprise Izuku laughed.
“No not Papa. Dad” Izuku was still laughing and it probably didn’t help that my confusion was apparent. “Dad. I want to tell Toshi.”
Realization hit me and I couldn’t answer. I trust Toshi. And he did trust us with his secret. Can I? Can I do the same? “Why? Why do you want to tell him?”
In all honesty Izuku was not ready for that question. He thought mom would say yes or no or something like that. But he didn’t think mama would ask him why. Izuku thought for a moment. Just a moment. “I trust Toshi and Toshi trusts us. I, I don’t want to hide from dad. I want to be a hero like dad, but I can’t if I don’t tell him the truth about my quirk” I looked up at mama and she was thinking hard, her nose was scrunched, and her lips were in a tight line she thought for a long time.
Mama sighed after a long, long time, “Alright, but are you absolutely sure you want to tell him?” I nodded my head; my mind was made up.
Inko looked at her son fondly, he was growing up fast, too fast for her tastes. Izuku had a smile on his face but it disappeared. And she began to panic. Before she could say anything, he whispered, “Papa asked about my quirk.” Her breath caught in her throat. He can’t know. He shouldn’t know about Izuku’s quirk. “he didn’t know anything mama.”
“How can, you be sure?”
“Because he asked me what it was, and his color didn’t change, and he didn’t think about it.”
“Izuku” she needed to know “What did you tell your father?”
“That my quirk makes me fast and strong” she pursed her lips at this “he thinks it is a mutation” at this she was finally able to breathe. Hisashi was smart, and learning about quirks is his passion, something Izuku inherited. Thankfully, he thinks Izuku’s quirk is simple, strange, but simple. “Are you mad, mama?”
“No, you know better now to only trust few because I can’t lose you not again, never again” Izuku hugged her.
I opened the door quietly, not knowing if Izuku was already asleep. To my surprise he nearly talked me when I opened the door. “Dad’s home, Dad’s home mama.” Izuku called out to his mother while pulling me towards the living room.
“How was work?” Inko asked like she always did, but tonight she seemed a bit tense. She was holding a mug in her hands and on the table were two more.
“Work was fine, are you alright?” I went into a frenzy trying to figure out what was upsetting her. I asked so many questions so fast that not all left my lips. To my utter surprise Inko didn’t answer but Izuku did, well sort of.
Izuku laughed, “Mama is fine Dad” I looked at him “she isn’t hurt or scared of anything.”
I looked at the child and was in awe a ten-year-old was so calm and Toshi could not understand so he looked at Izuku as if to clarify.
“Mama is nervous, because, because I want to tell you something.” He paused and looked dead serious almost as if he knew everything going on. “something as big as you are being All Might.”
He didn’t know what to say or do so he simply nodded and listened. Inko gave him a mug and sat next to him. Izuku was sitting in the chair next to the couch and took a deep breath.
“I wanted to tell you about my quirk.” His quirk? Isn’t it a strength quirk? “No, my quirk is not a strength quirk. My quirk is, um well, I have multiple quirks.” I froze what this, this cant be true. Izuku can use many quirks. Does he steal them. No, he can’t, he can’t be like him. “I don’t steal quirks. I can copy any quirk I see used in person, but only if I understand how it works. I make a copy and can then use it any time.”
This is major I looked over at Inko and her lips were in a tight line and she almost looked to be in tears. I placed the mug down and looked at Izuku who looked at me. I stood up walked around the table and crouched down. Izuku was shaking and holding his breath, he was scared, just like was when I told them I was a hero. That was when I hugged Izuku I hugged my boy and he cried into my shoulder.
“It’s okay, it’s okay” he tried to reassure him “You were so brave to tell me. And that does not change the fact that you are my son and I love you. So, thank you for being honest with me Izuku I know that could not have been easy.” He had pulled away from the boy and wiped the tears from his eyes. Izuku seemed to be relieved at his answer and hugged him tight. “now it is time for you to go to bed we have a big day planned tomorrow after all” Toshi stated with a chuckle and the little tike ran off to get ready for bed.
“Thank you” Inko whispered as if she had not taken a breath since he had arrived.
“For accepting Izuku.”
“Well” Toshi shuffled his feet and ran a hand through his hair timidly “Izuku accepted me first” and he let out a laugh.
