"So Mr.Ground Zero... you have everyone, and I mean everyone, chasing after you. Girls', Guys', Alphas', Betas', Omegas', everyone! I guaranty that at least half of the audience would kill for you to at least shake their hand. But what I want to know is that if you have a special someone behind closed doors?"
All went quiet as everyone waited for the pro to answer. Which didn't take very long. "No. Any kind of mate would be too much of a distraction from my goal of keeping my spot as the number one hero." The blonde stated as the crowd of his loving fans cheered with joy at his cocky remark. Also at the fact that they still had a slight chance to get with the Alpha wolf.
"Heh, I'm not surprised." The Beta host said when the crowd calmed. "Well if you're not seeing anyone, then why don't you tell us what interests you so we can fix ourselves. Am I right people?" Once again the crowd applauded and cheered. Bakugou being bisexual and not sexually attracted to a certain second gender, pretty much everyone had a chance. "Well, this person can't be a cookie-cutter kind of mate. They can't be there to just agree with everything I say and go with whatever happens. They have to have some kind of fuc- uh freaking fire to them. Someone who will be able to put up with all of my crap and temper." "That's me!" A girl in the crowd shouted, which got a chuckle out everyone including Bakugou. "Well Ground Zero, it looks like whenever you're ready you have an offer. Well, that's all for tonight folks. Thank you Ground Zero for coming out here tonight it was amazing to meet you! Goodnight folks I'll see you next week!" The camera panned out and the crowd applauded as the show ended for the night.
After a while, Bakugou got up from the leather chair he was sitting in to go to the restroom in the temporary dressing room he had for the night.
On the way, he was stopped by a small voice. "Um, Mr.G-Ground Zero?" The Alpha turned around to see a small, timid boy with dark brown hair and blue eyes that stared directly at the ground below him. "What's up, kid?" He answered. "I was wondering if y-you could sign this picture I have?" The boy held up a picture of Bakugou after he won a fight he had a few months back. "Sure." Bakugou had gotten a whole lot better with kids than when he attended UA. He actually was very fond of them. No one was really sure why, including himself, but they always made him a little happy and calmed him down for some reason.
Using the marker the wolf pup had brought, he signed his hero name on the bottom right messily as always. "Here you go, kid. And you stay outta trouble." He motioned to the cast on the boy's wrist. The kid's eyes lit up when the picture was returned, now with his idol's signature. "Yes, sir! Oh! I have a picture for you, too." He gave the older wolf a drawing of him in his hero gear, standing on a line of green and the sun was drawn in the top left corner which was all drawn in crayon. He looked up at the pro with ears, which were drooped on his head before, now standing straight up and his tail wagging happily behind him. Katsuki smiled at it, really liking it. "Thanks, bud, I'll hang it up when I get home."
Katsuki noticed something that he hadn't before, that he had a bruise under his left eye that looked like it was made pretty recently. "Hey kid," he said as he crouched down to get on his level and looking him directly in his wide, cobalt eyes. "What's your name?" "Ren" "Do me a favor, Ren; the next time your bully does that too I want you to hit him as hard as you can. Because bullies aren't cool, I should know. Can you do that for me?" "Yes, Sir Ground Zero!" He confirmed with a nod and a determined face. The Alpha stood, smiled down at Ren and tousled his hair a bit. "Good, now get outta here" Ren laughed and pulled his arm away. "Thank you!" He exclaimed and turned to his mom who was standing behind him the entire time and probably heard their whole conversation. They walked away, hand in hand, but his mom mouthed a 'thank you' to him when they were about to turn a corner. Which Bakugou didn't think she meant for the picture.
Bakugou returned to his apartment at 12 am that night and was worn out. It was way past the time he normally went to bed at. Thank God he didn't have to work tomorrow so he could sleep in for a few hours in the morning.
He loved his fans, they were amazing and kind of weird for loving how much of a dick he was, but it was nice to have the support. Meeting Ren had definitely made his day. It put him in a good mood the rest of the night even though he was exhausted. He hung his drawing up as promised, next to a pile of other artwork, letters, or anything else he got from his fans. He took a quick shower, slid into a pair of boxers and some old basketball shorts and got finally got in bed. One thing stopped him from falling into the peaceful state of sleep. Ren. He's been thinking of that kid since he saw him and how he reminded him of a certain someone. Izuku Midoriya. Deku. The last time he saw the guy was in their second year of high school. Deku moved to the states at the end of the year for some reason that he didn't care to know, and he hasn't seen him since. All he knew was that the rabbit was ranked the number one hero in some place in California. The new Symbol of Peace. The first Omega to reach number one. He had to admit, the nerd was doing pretty good. Guilt clawed at his mind when he remembered all the things he did to the omega.
‘A weak rabbit, omega, really thinks that he's going to be a hero? Ha! You'd be lucky if you even make it past the gates without screwing something up, Idiot!' A memory said.
He really needed to apologize to him. Deku never did anything wrong to him, if anything he was always there for him like after he got kidnapped by the League of Villains. Calling wasn't an option. He never gave him his number, and he's changed his countless amounts of times due to it getting out. He could travel there. But know that he thought about it, it just sounded creepy to go across the world to see someone you haven't seen in years to apologize. Or really sweet.
Ugh! Why was this so damn complicated. Maybe one of the idiots he went to school with still had his number. Yeah, that could work. He'd have to ask later because it was about to be 1 am and he was now yawning every three seconds.
Katsuki spent his next day off catching up on much-needed sleep, training, and just flat out relaxing. As much as he loves his job it's nice to get away every so often. It would have been great if he could get the thought of childhood friend out of his mind. He spent part of his day looking at what the green haired rabbit had been doing the past eight years.
Midoriya kept his hero name as Deku, which is still a surprise to Bakugou considering what it was supposed to mean. He earned the number one hero title a year ago. Four months after Katsuki earned his. So technically he was still better than the nerd even now.
He looked the same. Same costume, same huge green eyes, but he definitely grew a bit and looked older. His hair was still the same also, but it was now cut shorter at the sides and the back. Which he had to admit, looked pretty good. Overall he looked like your basic cute, but hot guy. A muscular body, fit, soft smile, easy on the eyes, cute fluffy ears and tail, but a total badass underneath it all.
He finished his high school years at Shoreside High School in Los Angeles, which is ranked the third best high school in producing the best heroes in America.
Bakugou's hand stood still from scrolling when he saw an image of Izuku that made his heart halt for a second before beating an entire pace faster and his mouth gaped open.
Deku was seen looking down at an unconscious villain who was bleeding from his nose and had a great bruise on his cheek, which Katsuki could only assume was from Izuku punching him. While Deku was bleeding from his temple which was spilling down his face. He had a deep massive scratch across his chest starting from under his right peck and ending at his upper left shoulder that was staining his hero costume in dark, red blood. But caught his attention was his facial expression. Not only was it covered in pride in his own win, but he was smirking eerily in a way that could rival Katsuki's and win. That's a face that he never even considered seeing on his usual timid and muttering rival, but not one that he wouldn't want to see again.
After 30 more minutes of scrolling, he came to the conclusion that it was a one-time thing. And that it was time to reading about the nerd's life. He closed his laptop and went to his spare bedroom to lift his weights he kept in there to distract himself.
10 minutes into the wolfs workout, his phone went off signaling that he had an incoming call.
Incoming Call from 'Shitty Hair' his phone stated.
Pressing the green answer icon, he said into the device, "What do you want?" "BakuBro!" The fellow Alpha exclaimed. "What the fuck do you want." He said with more emphasis this time. "Ok, chill. I was wondering if you wanted to come to the bar with me, Kaminari, Mina, and Sero." "Why would I want to watch you idiots get drunk off your ass's only to bring you back here to watch you all throw your guts up?" "Because you love us and would take care of us." He could hear him grinning even through the phone. "Tch."
"Is that a yes?"
"Come on, you're not going to be doing anything better. Please?" He wasn't wrong. Bakugou did plan on just staying in the rest of the night. Finish his workout, watch some TV, and go to bed. Nothing really interesting. Mabey going out for a couple of drinks wouldn't be too bad.
"Yay! We'll meet you at our regular spot at 8."
"Ok, I'll see later." And with that, the redhead hung up. Well, it looks like Katsuki was going out tonight.
