Her feet were killing her, and her temples were throbbing. Every step that she took to get closer to home, felt like it was in slow motion. Shouto had called to let her know the front door was unlocked, but just thinking about pushing that heavy thing open made her groan.
Momo’s quirk was taxing, no matter how she used it, and today was a little bit much. The mission she went on had her creating spear after spear, and shield after shield. She was basically on defense mode all day, hardly even getting a break.
It was a success though—the villains were captured and taken into the station without problems. Momo just wished she could’ve sat down a second before having to get up and head home. Well, she could have, but she wanted to be in the comfort of her home, lying in bed with Shouto.
“Mo, is that you?” The sound of her boyfriend’s monotonous voice made her head perk up just a little bit more as she was entering their apartment.
“It’s me Shouto, I’m home.”
“Welcome home dear.” The creation hero took her shoes off—well, she more so stumbled out of them and caught herself on the wall across from her—and shrugged off her coat.
“I made you vegetable curry, and extra rice.”
“Oh that sounds delicious.” Momo sighed, brushing her bangs out of her face and finally taking her hair down. She walked into the kitchen to see her boyfriend clad in some white joggers and a black tee, an apron around his waist and tied behind his neck.
“I started a bath for you.” The half-hot, half-cold hero claimed, turning to her with a tray of her food and a small smile.
“What, are you expecting to feed me in the tub?” Momo joked, a playful glint in her eyes.
“Mhmm.” Shouto answered, his small smile now seemingly a smirk.
“Follow me.” He walked in front of her, carefully placing a kiss on the side of her face as he did so.
“Of course I am. I was watching the news, and I know you’re exhausted. Just soak in the tub and I’ll hang out with you.” Once they arrived in their bathroom, Momo gasped, seeing a bottle of wine and two tall glasses tucked away in the corner. Shouto had situated the bathing stool in front of the bath and a flowery aroma was in the air, mixing with the steam from the tub.
“You didn’t have to.”
“I never do, but I want to.” Shouto sat on the stool, facing her and nodding, almost like a silent ‘go on’ for her to start undressing. The black-haired girl blushed, but soon obliged, leaving her clothes on top of the hamper they kept just outside the shower area.
A content sigh left Momo’s lips as she dipped her feet into the tub, carefully sliding to a sitting position facing her handsome boyfriend, who was ready with a spoonful of rice. Before opening her mouth, she couldn’t help but laugh, and Shouto did the same.
“You spoil me.”
“What kind of boyfriend would I be if I didn’t?”
“Mm, not sure. I can’t imagine it,” Momo mused, letting out a groan once she finally ate the rice, “Something so simple, cooked by such a handsome boy, and it’s so yummy.”
“I made sure I got jasmine rice. The other one we had last week was always too wet.”
“Jasmine rice is perfect. Wait, Sho did you eat?”
“I was snacking earlier while watching the news. I’m not that hungry, anyways, I want to take care of you tonight.” Said boy smiled, feeding her some curry and vegetables. The corners of Momo’s eyes crinkled a bit as she giggled and he leaned forward to kiss her on the nose.
“I love seeing you in that apron.” Momo gushed, making her boyfriend let out a breathy laugh.
“I love seeing you so relaxed. Do you want me to pop open the bottle of wine?”
“Ooh some wine sounds good.” Shouto set down the tray of food and got up, stretching over Momo to grab the wine on the other side of the tub. Once he had it in his grasp he leaned down to kiss her again and she smiled, feeling his lips on hers for the first time tonight.
“I can give you a foot massage after you’re done bathing too. I’ll put a movie on.”
“Wow a foot massage and a movie? I’m living so lavishly.” Momo chortled, watching as her boyfriend pulled the cork out of the wine bottle.
“You did a good job today, I’m so proud of you.”
“Oh goodness Shouto.” The creation hero blushed and covered her mouth with one hand, slowly dunking her head to wet her hair and then coming back up to breath.
“My lady.” Shouto offered her a glass once she opened her eyes and wiped a hand down her face, and she gladly took it, sipping on it almost instantly.
“Are you off tomorrow?”
“I have night shift tomorrow.” Momo hummed in response and ate another scoop of curry and rice, then another, and sipped on her wine. Once she was finished with her food, Shouto took the tray into the kitchen and put away his apron, walking back to the bathroom to wash his girlfriend’s hair.
“What time do you wanna wake up tomorrow?” She asked him, leaning into his hands as he lathered her hair and massaged her scalp.
“Doesn’t matter. Did you wanna do something in the morning?”
“Maybe just lie around.”
“Sounds like a good idea.” Shouto rinsed out her black locks and reached for the loofa, going to start scrubbing her back and arms. The soap bubbled as he made circular motions across her body and Momo shut her eyes, letting herself be pampered by the boy she loved so dearly.
“You’re gonna put me to sleep.” She murmured, smiling a bit as he began wiping down her face and neck. She was starting to feel the wine.
“If you do, I’ll carry you to bed.”
“No?” Shouto chuckled, washing her off one last time and kissing her cheek.
“I can’t fall asleep in the tub.”
“Well lucky for you, you’re all clean now. Make sure you finish your wine.”
“Yes sir.” Momo hiccuped, giggling a little as he left to get her towel and robe. When he came back, she was standing up, the water fully drained and bottle of wine in her hand. She rung out her hair before he draped a warm towel across her shoulders and scooped her up into his arms.
The two shared a laugh as he walked to their room, sitting her on the edge of their bed and wiping her down. She took a swig from the bottle and offered Shouto, who gladly took it and watched as she put her hair up. Momo dressed herself in her robe after applying some lotion and the red and white haired boy admired her from his spot, feeling a blush creep to his cheeks once they made eye contact and she winked at him.
God was he lucky, and she was absolutely beautiful.
“Time for that foot massage?” Momo inquired.
“Time for that foot massage,” He repeated, a small chuckle leaving his lips as he gave her the bottle of wine back, “I expect that to be finished before I put the movie on.”
“I’m finishing this by myself!?”
“I can’t be tipsy while giving you a massage, that’s just unprofessional.”
“Shouto!” Momo burst into laughter and he peppered her face with kisses before pushing her back onto the bed, where she sat patiently and he knelt before her.
“What genre are you interested in watching tonight?”
“Mm, probably romance. I just wanna watch people fall in love.” The dark-haired girl sighed as she spoke, a look of pure adoration etched across her face.
“You and your love movies.”
“What? You don’t enjoy them?”
“I do. Makes me realize how much I love you.”
“Aw, you’re so sweet.” Momo cooed, earning a playful glare from the boy at her feet.
“How do you want it?”
“A little rough.”
“My pleasure.” Shouto smirked to himself, feeling the tension grow in the air. Momo couldn’t help but feel a small jolt of electricity course through her body, the slight innuendo causing her to swallow thickly.
“So what’d you do while I was gone?” She cleared her throat, sighing a bit as her boyfriend began working on the soles of her feet. The wine bottle was almost half empty, and she took another swig from it, shutting her eyes for a moment as she waited for Shouto’s reply.
“Just think about you… Clean… Cook. Nothing exciting.”
“Mm sounds easy enough.”
“Finish the wine Mo.” Shouto tsked, going to rub the heels of her feet.
“I’m going, I’m going.” She hiccuped, taking a huge gulp and then another. The red and white haired boy watched in amusement, smiling at her once they made eye contact. A blush appeared on the creation hero’s cheeks once more, and she was beginning to feel even more tired than before, but a good tired now.
“C’mon you’ve got like three more sips. I’m almost done with your massage.”
“I’m trying.” Momo whined, sipping again and then laughing to herself.
“What’s so funny Mo?” Shouto asked, an eyebrow lifted.
“Are you feeling the wine yet?”
“No.” She drawled, mocking him. Oh she definitely was.
“Hmm, are you sure?” Shouto quirked his head to the side and finished rubbing her feet, placing a small kiss on one of them and then standing up.
“I’m gonna start the movie now.”
“Okie dokie.” Momo gave him a dopey smile and Shouto chuckled, patting her head and walking over to their flatscreen.
“Why don’t you get under the covers and lie down?”
“Not finished with the wine yet.”
“Well hurry then silly.” Shouto teased her, playing the first romance movie on their list of recommended.
“Sho I can’t.” Momo hiccuped, burping soon after as she slipped out of her robe and crawled under the covers. Shouto was completely unaware of all of this till he turned to see the fluffy article of clothing on the ground. His breath caught in his throat, knowing that she was stark naked under the sheets, but he kept his composure.
“I’ll finish it, I guess.” He clicked his tongue sarcastically and Momo giggled, pulling the covers up to her nose as she handed him the bottle. She was almost finished; there was like, a huge gulp and a half left.
“Are you going to shower?”
“I forgot to tell you that I already did. But I do smell like curry, so maybe I should shower again…”
“I’ll shower you.” Momo snickered, relaxing into her pillows and sliding her gaze over to the television.
“You’re fine, just watch your movie. I’ll just rinse really quick.”
“No, don’t leave me.” The creation hero whined, dragging on the last syllable of every word that left her lips.
“I’ll be right back, promise.” Shouto planted a kiss on the side of her face and she quickly turned to peck him on the lips--once, twice, until she pulled him by his collar onto the bed.
“You can stay; we’ll wash the sheets in the morning.” Momo said against his lips, her body shifting over so that she could wrap her legs around his middle, and essentially trap him above her. A shiver ran down Shouto’s body as he did his best not to stare at his naked girlfriend, but she noticed him swallow hard.
“Mo, I smell like curry. Not very appealing if you ask me.”
“It’s fine.” The two continued kissing, Shouto’s body temperature rising to match hers—or maybe it was even higher. The boy knew that she became incredibly clingy once tipsy, and more smitten than usual. It was another small attribute that he grew to love, and was very grateful to figure out on his own.
“You’re not paying attention to the movie.” Shouto finally said once they broke away, a teasing tone in his voice.
“I know the movie is just meant to be background noise.”
“Background noise for what?”
"You're just trying to butter me up!"
"Butter you up?" Shouto chuckled, stealing a few more kisses before attacking the rest of her face, "You're completely right."
“Shouto!” Said boy smirked and Momo blushed heavily, her entire body heating up against her boyfriend’s. He had a lustful glint in his eyes, and the black-haired girl pulled his face back down to hers so they could continue kissing.
After a few moments, Shouto finally caved in and moved to begin taking his clothes off. First it was his shirt, then she untied his joggers and helped him push them down his legs. The red and white haired boy pulled the sheet over them, his underwear still on and his lips now attached to her neck, nipping and sucking wherever possible.
Momo giggled to herself, feeling all types of warm throughout her entire body. A hand rested on the nape of his neck as he moved lower, and lower, earning content sighs and small moans here and there.
“The things you do for me.” She breathed out once he got to where she wanted him most, and Shouto smirked, staring up at her with desire obvious in his heterochromatic eyes.
“I do it all because I want to.”
