Izuku Midoriya, in the midst of making dinner, darts between the kitchen and the small dining table, setting the table while trying to keep anything from burning. Cooking wasn't exactly his forte, but his mother taught him the basics, and he had a tutorial video playing to take him through step by step. He looks up at the clock and moves faster.

Shouto was going to be home at any minute, and he'll be tired. He's been pretty tired for the past week or so, and Izuku decided to spoil him tonight and help him relax. He turns off the heat on the stove and finishes setting the table as the door opens, he listens to the sound of Shouto removing his heavy cleats at the door.

"Welcome back," Izuku smiles gently, watching as his fiancé tiredly rubs at the back of his neck. "Long day?"

"Yeah," Shouto walks up to him and hugs him, resting his head on his shoulder. Izuku had a growth spurt near the end of their third year at UA, and now he was a few inches taller than him. He smiles when strong arms circle around him and he pulls back enough to pull him into a quick kiss. "I missed you today,"

"I missed you too," Izuku smiles, kissing him again.

"You made dinner?" Shouto asks when his eyes fall on the table. "Without burning anything? What's the occasion?"

"I wanted to surprise you." Izuku takes his hand and leads him to the table. "You've been really tired lately and I thought you deserved to come home to a nice dinner instead of leftovers or takeout."

"You're too good to me, you know that?"

"You deserve it."


Izuku piles the empty dishes into the sink, leaving them for later as he turns back to Shouto. The man was drifting off at the table. He smiles and gently taps his shoulder.

"Wanna take a bath then go to bed?"

"Take it with me?"

Izuku's face flushes. "I um, sure. Are you feeling okay, Shouto? You're usually not this... Clingy."

"If you don't want too, you don't have too."

"N-No! I want to, I just want to know you're feeling okay, that's all."

"I'm fine, I just--" he pauses, a look of uncertainty crossing his face before he puts on a smile. "I'm just tired, that's all."

Unconvinced, Izuku smiles anyway and kisses his forehead, letting his lips linger there for a few seconds. "Okay," he says once he pulls back.


Izuku and Shouto rest in the tub, they didn't do much cleaning, simply soaking and letting the hot water soothe their muscles. Izuku gently massages shampoo onto his scalp, smiling at the way Shouto visibly relaxed.

Shouto hums at the feeling, leaning back onto his chest. He closes his eyes when Izuku tells him, and water is poured over his head to rinse the shampoo from his hair. Once Izuku started to focus on washing his arms, he turns around to face him, opening his mouth to speak, but no words coming out.

"What's wrong, Shouchan?" green eyes blink when the other simply leans into him, hugging him and hiding his face in the crook of his neck. He smiles and starts rubbing circles into his back. "You know you can tell me what's bothering you, right?"

He hears him mutter something, but he can't quite make it out. "Hmm?" his hands fall from his back when Shouto leans away again.

He looks him in the eye, and without any more hesitation he says; "Izuku, I'm pregnant."

Izuku stares at him, smiling dumbly as he tries to process what was just told to him. "Huh?"

"I'm pregnant."

"Pregnant...?" he blinks, still smiling. "You mean... You're going to have a baby?" he nods. "My baby?"

"I would hope so, I haven't been with anyone else besides you." Shouto frowns when Izuku falls silent with a blank look on his face. "Izuku...? Are you... Do you not--" the wind is knocked out of him when Izuku pulls him into a tight hug.

"We're going to have a baby!" Izuku holds him tightly, tears in his eyes. He loosens his hold when Shouto taps him a few times. "How long have you-- When did you find out?"

"I don't really know, and today. Fuyumi made me take a test after I told her how I've been feeling lately. But if I timed it right, about six weeks ." he smiles and pulls back, arms finding their way around Izuku's neck. "You're happier than I thought you'd be."

"Of course I am! But... Are you happy?" Izuku looks at him with concern. "I mean, are you okay with this?"

"I don't know how I'm going to feel about the whole thing," Shouto admits. "Right now it's still too new and hasn't really sunk in yet. But," he places a hand on his stomach. "I want to go through with it, and if I'm going to do this, I wouldn't want to do it with anyone else besides you."

Izuku smiles and pulls him down into a kiss. He pulls back a moment later, taking a breath. "We're going to need a bigger apartment, and diapers, and baby clothes, and a crib, and--"

Shouto smiles as Izuku rambles off about what they'll need for the baby and rests against his chest again, using his left side to heat the bath water as it cools. He closes his eyes, letting his fiancé's voice, the hand rubbing his back and the warmth of his skin and the water lull him to sleep.
