Chapter 1: Unplanned Surprise
Tomura hated the smell of the police station; he swore it smelled so chemically that it could make anyone gag. The stale cup of coffee sat in front of him on the table. He hadn’t touched it, he preferred the fofo drinks as Twice used to say. His fingers were still stained with ink from being fingerprinted leaving little marks along the styrofoam, his fingernails leaving little indents as he dragged his finger up and down the side to soothe himself.
He was shocked to see Shouta sitting next to him, the omega had drove him here himself after dropping Katsuki, Hizashi, and Hitoshi off at the hospital, Katsuki even gave Tomura a reassuring hug telling him everything would be okay, even thanked him for saving him.
It just didn’t feel right…..Tomura knew he didn’t deserve it. He was trash, he was gum stuck to the bottom of someone’s shoe. He was…terrible…despicable….fucking rotten.
“Just breathe, Tomura, everything will be fine” Shouta promised with a kind smile, and a gentle squeeze to his shoulder.
“I….I don’t deserve everything to be fine” the blue haired omega whispered wiping his eyes, he felt Shouta run his hand up and down his back.
“I know you think that right now.” Shouta whispered, “but in the eyes of the law you did nothing wrong, alpha commands are no joke. Especially repeated alpha commands.” Tomura could see the pain in Shouta’s eyes. “I’m surprised you’re still here with how often you were commanded, from what you were telling me”
Tomura swallowed thickly. “I….I tried to end it multiple times, and Sensei would just lock me away…..and Kai…..Kai would come “give me his knot” so that I could stay sane. Apparently omega’s need to be raped. Did you know that? Because I sure as fuck didn’t” tomura shivered tugging on the side of his coat, curling in on himself. He didn’t even want the flashing images that were floating in his mind to bother him. He just wanted this to be over.
Tomura could smell in Shouta's scent that the omega was shocked. “He raped you?” Shouta questioned his heart. Black eyes met crimson and Tomura shrugged nonchalantly, hoping that Shouta understood that somewhere in Tomura’s mind the omega thought he deserved it.
“All the time.” Tomura whispered. His eyes overflowed. That was what made this even more unbearable, Tomura knew that Kai wasn’t his alpha, but for some fucking reason his omega craved contact, craved connection and Tomura would do everything in his power to stay the fuck away from Kai. Fuck the omega would literally chop off his own feet before he ran back to the LOV…..he was done….he wanted fucking out. Tomura quickly wiped the tears off of his cheeks.
He didn’t deserve to cry.
Whatever happened to him now the omega knew he deserved it….He deserved all the pain and agony he had endured for now. He really didn’t even deserve to be in the presence of such an amazing hero. Especially one he almost murdered…..if Kai was here…..He could just lock Tomura up in that dark room again….the one where there was no light and he would be left for days with his own thoughts and the nightmares that appeared in the dark for company.
Yeah….that was what Tomura deserved.
He deserved it.
All the pain.
All the suffering.
All the abuse.
He may as well hang a sign around his neck that just says garbage, because at the end of the day that was how Tomura saw himself.
Kai and Sensei said it all the time. He was worthless, useless, stupid….ugly….an omega.
Why did everything wrong in his life come from his secondary gender? Being an omega was just fucking terrible and Tomura just wanted it to change.
Was there a way to change his secondary gender? Tomura shook his head in annoyance. He already knew the answer.
It was no.
Shouta sat there with wide eyes. The poor omega…..he couldn’t even imagine that. He couldn’t imagine being commanded constantly and then in the midst of being commanded being raped…..from the sounds of it repeatedly.
“You should have said something, honey, I would have taken you to the hospital first” Shouta whispered. His hand once again squeezing Tomura’s shoulder delicately.
People would probably criticize Shouta for being so friendly to the omega.
But Shouta saw the truth, Tomura was scared and abused, the man sitting next to him was way too young, his son Hitoshi and him had to be close in age, he could never leave a pup to be defenseless like this.
The interrogation room opened slowly revealing detective Naomasa. He had a kind smile on his face as he sat down, Shouta appreciated the Betas' tact in this odd situation.
“Hello Shigaraki, my name is Detective Naomasa” the best smiled, “I hear you want to turn over information on the league to be granted freedom.”
Shouta felt Tomura stiffen, “i…..I was told if I was alpha commanded, I wouldn’t be in trouble.” The man whimpered, wiping his eyes, his hands shaking as they pushed back his ratty whiter blue hair.
Naomasa nodded, “we will have to run some tests for that, would that be alright with you? I would have to see you get commanded and how responsive you are” Naomasa admitted biting his lip, Shouta was looking at Naomasa like he wanted to kill him. The obsidian eyed omega couldn’t even believe his ears. They were going to alpha command him right here in the police station. That was pure insanity.
“There is no way you are doing this now, Naomasa?” Shouta argued quickly looking over at the shaking man next to him. Tomura looked paler than normal and his hands were trembling so hard coffee was sloshing out the sides of the styrofoam cup.
“Shouta….my hands are completely tied here…..they want to lock him away forever…..so we have to prove his innocence now….or he will be locked away in Tartarus for….probably for the rest of his life.” The detective admitted looking at the pair of omegas across from him. Shouta took a breath and shook his head.
“We don’t have to….” Shouta was cut off by Tomura nodding his head and the man took a gasping breath. Shouta was afraid the boy was going to pass out from lack of oxygen.
Tomura shivered, his leg bouncing up and down rapidly.
He had to be alpha commanded….right now….in front of Shouta Aizawa….maybe this was some comedic justice….the other omega could see what a fucking disgraceful, pathetic mess he was.
“I….okay…..Um” Tomura's hand quickly went over his mouth as he felt that familiar wave of nausea, even the thought of being alpha commanded made him sick. The omega gagged roughly leaning over toward the trash can as he started to heave.
“Is that necessary? You literally have a lie detector quirk, Naomasa” Shouta growled, looking over at his companion who was still vomiting. It was taking everything in the older omega not to comfort the man.
“It has to be conducted, this is out of my hands, Shouta. I am so sorry” he admitted with a sad frown. “It’s protocol. We will only do it with a trusted alpha though, Yagi is here, would you like me to grab him?”
“Tomura, would you be okay with All Might, Alpha commanding you?” Shouta questioned gently, the terrified red eyes looked back at him. Another rough gasping breath was heard the man’s hair getting pulled as he curled up into himself.
“No…please! I almost killed him…..he’s gonna hate me” Tomura sobbed, leaning forward and clinging onto Shouta’s sweater thankful for once to the quirk cancelling cuffs wrapped around his wrists.
“Pup, you didn’t do anything, it was the alpha command, Yagi, would never do anything to harm another human. That man is pure to his soul” Shouta vouched for him. Shouta knew that whatever terror was eating at Tomura would only get worse with time. “We should probably do it now?” Shouta offered that and Naomasa was out of the room. “Tomura it’ll be okay, and I will be there.”
The blue haired omega was shaking and gagging every so often.
Tomura nodded as Naomasa and Yagi walked through the door. All Might looked at the blue haired omega with nervousness in eyes and Shouta growled at him, which caused Yagi to back away, “you don’t get to judge. Not when you don’t know the whole story.” The raven haired omega was warning Yagi. Even his eyes were telling one of his best friends to behave himself.
“Alright, what am I here for?” Yagi questioned sitting down across from Tomura and Shouta. The alpha’s leg bounced up and down.
Naomasa paused looking at the shaking omega in the chair across from him. The boy was young….way too young to be living a life of crime, honestly way too young to be living like this. “We need you to alpha command, Shigaraki.”
The blue haired teen curled up as much as he could, trying to hide away from the alpha, the behavior was concerning, this boy was terrified of alphas. “I….I’m not comfortable doing that” Yagi answered honestly as he took in the man’s body language. “He looks terrified, Nao”
“Well be abused, raped, and tortured due to alpha commands and see how you feel!” Shouta growled at Yagi, Naomasa’s eyes widened. The beta flinching at the man’s words. It was obvious that Shouta was feeling protective of the other male.
“Alright, let’s all calm down.” The detective spoke, laying a gentle hand on Yagi’s shoulder, with a soft smile. “This isn’t helping, Shigaraki”
The blue haired omega was curled up into a ball practically sobbing, “pup, it’s okay” Shouta promised gently, running a hand through his hair gently. “No ones mad, let’s get this over with so we can get you to the doctors yeah?” He asked with a gentle smile, hugging him softly.
“Do we have your consent to use an alpha command on you?” The detective questioned turning, making sure the recording device was on when he asked.
“Yes…” Tomura answered with a shiver, “what…what do you need me to do?” He gagged slightly, his form trembling in fear. The scent of rancid mint was enough to churn every stomach in the investigation room.
“You can sit there.” Naomasa explained with a kind smile. It wasn’t like he could reassure him that everything would be okay, Alpha commands could be deadly, if an omega received too many in quick succession and if the terror Tomura was exhibiting it was likely the man had been alpha commanded quite frequently.
“Alright, Yagi,” Naomasa prompted. The large blond haired alpha looked uncomfortable as he wrong his fingers together “Just simple things”
“Naomasa….Shouta….I don’t like this” Yagi responded, “I have never used an alpha command on anyone” the symbol of peace sighed heavily. “And I didn't want to start today.” The man put his hands in his yellow blond hair. “I….I feel sick….” Yagi whispered out to the room and Shouta and Naomasa looked at him with sympathetic eyes, where Tomura just looked ready to pass out from fear.
“I….I give you permission….this isn’t my first rodeo.” Tomura whispered, his red eyes locking with Yagi’s blue ones. “I…...Its not your fault….if anything goes bad…...I promise.” Tomura whispered out, his voice cracking as tears fell from his crimson eyes his trembling hands laid out flat against the top of the wooden table.
Yagi froze looking at the young man before him. The man’s scent was putrid and it was taking everything in Yagi to not flood the room with blueberry pie and comfort. He took a deep breath and ready himself with one final nod, Yagi spoke his first command.
“ Omega, stand” Naomasa watched as Tomura didn’t even hesitate to rise to his feet. Normally an omega could fight slightly against it, especially against someone that wasn’t their mate, but Tomura looked almost like a zombie, his eyes were dulled, his posture tense. His head falling forward slightly. Naomasa waved his hands in front of Tomura’s face and the man didn’t even flinch. He sighed, reaching forward grasping the omega on the throat touching his scent gland and the beta hissed when he felt how hot it was.
It was like touching molten lava….even the man’s scent was starting to disappear almost as if to mask himself.
“Another please” Naomasa was watching to see if Tomura had any fight against the commands. It was looking less and less likely as tears started dribbling down his cheeks.
“ Omega, kneel” Shouta looked disgusted at the command, as Tomura dropped to his knees so hard they cracked against the tile. Yagi hissed. “I can’t do this” The alpha was almost in tears. “This is gross, he’s not even fighting” Yagi shook his head holding up his trembling hands. “I’m hurting him….I’m not okay with this….I” Yagi himself gagged and Tomura was drooling on himself at that point which showed Naomasa almost all that he needed to see.
Naomasa bit his lip, “he can’t fight it anymore…” the detective admitted. “I bet even an omega could command him like this….with how under he is.”
Shouta looked at Tomura who was weeping silently on the floor with his dulled red eyes, Shouta knew it was going to be bad….but this bad? Shouta could have easily broken out of that alpha command, but Tomura…..he couldn’t even lift a finger to get out of it. It was gut wrenching to witness. “Is that enough?” Shouta wiped his wet eyes, he couldn’t bear watching this anymore.
“Yes, obviously we need to do an interview. Please release your command Yagi.” Yagi looked relieved as he slumped back into the metal chair.
“ Release” Tomura gasped his hands going toward his throat as he heaved, his throat felt scratchy almost like he had been screaming, but he didn’t remember screaming….his scent gland was burning him….it felt so….hot why was he so hot? He was nauseous…..what happened? Where was he? He could smell soothing vanilla tea...he was thirsty.
Tomura shrilled when he felt a hand on him, his mind foggy and confused. It was that soothing vanilla scent again.
“Breathe, Tomura, breathe” Shouta coached gently, as he crouched next to the omega on the floor, he pulled over the trash can as Tomura vomited for the second time today. “Everything’s okay…..you’re safe, honey” Shouta promised, running his hands through the knotted blue hair.
“Hurts….” Tomura whimpered out, blinking to clear the blurriness. “Help….hurt” Tomura pleaded, clutching his chest and Shouta gently grasped his wrist checking his pulse, which of course was elevated due to stress. The young omega just kept pleading for help. “Please…..please….” He whimpered.
“It’s all over, take a deep breath…...and another. Good Job, hunny” Shouta praised with a purr trying to get Tomura to purr back anything to try and calm the other omega who was currently curled in in a ball on the linoleum clutching at his sweater.
Shouta could tell the detective was uncomfortable, and Shouta knew why the questions were next and who knew how awful they were going to be.
“Help….please….” Tomura pleaded as he got up to his knees. Shouta was shushing him softly, tanning his pale fingers through Tomura’s long hair. Shouta could hear a tentative quiet purr, it was almost as if Tomura was embarrassed by his own sounds of comfort so Shouta matched him, purring a little louder filling up the quiet space.
“You back with us, Honey?” Shouta questioned softly, the boy was still trembling and his hands were clutching at his sweater. But his crimson eyes had brightened significantly and his posture was more relaxed.
“Y-yeah…..I am” Tomura whispered out, wiping his eyes and the drool from his chin, it was quite strange to be commanded so delicately the commands weren’t full of malice or danger. They weren’t vile and putrid. They just were and it was calming….in the weirdest sense.
“I’m…im sorry Young Shigaraki…..I really have never done that before…” Yagi rambled biting his lip and a Tomura shook his head.
“It’s was fine” the blue haired omega promised, “it wasn’t too….too bad” he stuttered giving the alpha a shy smile.
Yagi leaned back in his metal chair crossing his arms with a nod, “still I’m sorry.”
Tomura nodded and look ar the wood table his hands were still trembling and he knew they hadn’t even gotten to the worst part. The questions.
“Are you okay to continue?” Naomasa questioned softly taking in the posture of the omega, he was still curled in on himself, but he didn’t look like he was going to pass out. Though they would have to be on the look out for a drop.
“Yeah….let’s just get this over with” he bit his lip, his fingers once again finding their way to the styrofoam glass with the stale now cold coffee. He fiddled with the little stir straw in the glass.
“How long were you in the LOV?” Naomasa questioned, the recording device’s red light was still on and persistent, letting Tomura know that he was being recorded.
“For as long as I can remember.” Tomura answered honestly, was he really going to spill all of his secrets just like that?
Tomura knew the answer was yes….fuck Kai, Fuck Sensei….he wanted a life….he wanted…..to just have fun…be free even if it was only for a short while before they found him and killed him.
“Can you clarify what that means?” Naomasa proded and Tomura shivered.
“Sensei found me on the streets when….when I was small….so he raised me….and alpha commanded me with his ideals…his beliefs….his absolute truths” Tomura whispered, he could never remember how he ended up on the streets in the first place. “ so yeah”
Tomura stuttered over his words, swallowing thickly.
“Do you know this Sensei's name?” Naomasa questioned leaning back in his chair and Tomura’s entire posture shifted to one of fear and sickness.
“I asked once” he shivered, his trembling hands fiddling with the string of his hoodie. “He….he beat me for days to remind me to never ask him again. I know what his quirk does….because he would….would always brag about it” the man coughed harshly into his hand. The nerves were getting the best of him.
“I’ll take any information you have,” Naomasa proded.
“Well…..he…..he can take quirks….permanently.” Tomura stated tears overflowing his eyes. “I watched him do it to…..he can just take and take and take….I don’t know if he has a limit” Tomura whispered out and it was so silent Tomura was afraid he had been killed.
“You….you can’t be serious.” Yagi whispered out Tomura’s head jerked up and the large alpha looked terrified….and that…that was enough to make Tomura practically collapse.
“Tomura?” Shouta questioned the kneeling neck of the boy, his normal mint scent was basically gone and the boy was panting. “Everything is fine,” he promised, “you’re safe.”
“No ones safe….if all for one is out there” Yagi whispered and Shouta’s head jerked….he remembered Yagi talking about that fight….how he almost died, his mentor did die. “I….I need…..I need a minute” Yagi was shaking himself as he slammed the door exiting the investigation room.
Shouta could feel the tension rising in the room and the blue haired omega was trembling. “He’s gonna kill me, EraserHead” crimson eyes full of acceptance and desperation penetrated Shouta down to his core. “But I have to give you all the information I have first….so let’s do this quickly and Tomura grasped the recording device close to his face, to make sure all of the information was picked up and he blabbed.
He spoke about Rei hiring them to kidnap Shoto.
He spoke about Sensei and everything he knew about him.
He spoke about Kai Chisaki and his quirk.
He spoke about Himiko Toga, her quirk, and her infiltration ability.
He spoke about Muscular and how he had managed to join up with them.
He spoke about Portal, the random girl that could generate teleportation portals.
He spoke about the Nomus. How they were created where they were stored.
He spoke about the doctor and all of his experimentation.
He struggled to make it through his wrong doings under the control of Sensei. He didn’t leave out any details all the way up to defending himself against some random alpha and accidentally disintegrating him, in his Alpha Commanded state.
He made sure to leave out his “pack” Twice, Spinner, Magne, Mr.Compress we’re all “bad guys” but it was due to unfortunate circumstances…..not because they were truly evil like he felt Kai and the others were.
He also started listing the locations of all the hideouts including the coordinates to each.
By the time Tomura was done, he was a shaking, stuttering, nauseous mess.
“Is….is that enough?” Tomura whispered out, blinking his exhausted red eyes.
Tomura felt like he had run a marathon that ended with him either in jail or murder by the man he once hoped would be a father to him. But the fucker turned out to be more like his executioner.
Shouta and Naomasa looked at him wide eyed and shocked. “I…that’s more than enough….we….we will have to get you under protective custody and witness protection…..” Naomasa stated. “But with all of this…..you…..you’re not going to get any jail time.” The beta explained and Tomura nodded, he was so tired.
He wished he could melt into the linoleum floor and just exist without the immediate exhaustion draining him.
This was too much….he was too tired.
He just wanted the earth to open and swallow him whole.
Was that too much to ask?
Tomura shivered a bit, wrapping his arms around him. His leg bouncing erratically as he thought of all the possibilities, when he looked up he noticed that the detective was gone….where the hell did he go?
“He went to go talk with the sheriff and he’s going to see if he can find someone to watch you after you leave here.” Shouta explained calmly, looking down at his hands. “Tomura….I am really sorry that you had to go through all of this….I...I am sorry that a hero was not their to help you the day you were kicked out. I am sorry that this fucking asshole hurt you so badly….but I do hope that whatever happens next is a good thing for you” Shouta leaned over squeezing his hand.
Tomura jerked slightly and then his face felt wet….why did his face feel wet? Tomura looked to his lap as little water droplets landed on his jeans...Oh….He was crying. “I….I meant what I said at the USJ…” He whispered. “Well…..some of it” He swallowed thickly. “You….you really are the coolest hero, EraserHead….and I…..I saw you some nights…..when I was on the streets….but i never had the courage to talk to you…..and I….I didn’t want to hurt you because of my quirk” Tomura whispered out with a wet sniffle. “I should….I should have just asked for help” He sobbed, tugging his hands away, he covered his face and he felt those strong arms hug him.
“Tomura…..it’s alright. I am happy that I was your favorite hero...and I apologize that I didn’t see you….you must be very stealthy” Shouta whispered, running his hands through the man’s hair. “And everything will be okay. I just hope whoevers protective custody you go into you get along.”
That made Tomura pause and look at him nervously. “It...it won’t be yours?” He whimpered, biting his lip and Shouta shook his head.
“I am no longer a pro-hero they won’t let me….and Hizashi….well…..he had a feral episode after Katsuki was taken….so he is actually on leave until he gets a psych evaluation done….Hitoshi offered, but since he is only a sidekick….they denied him as well….So I am unsure where you are going to go….But whoever it is I’ll make sure they have my number so you can call.”
Tomura really felt like he was dying now. He knew that at first Hitoshi, Hizashi, and Shouta were….all weary of him and rightfully so…..but he didn’t want to be left the devices of some angry and resentful hero. He whimpered nervously going to nuzzle and then he stopped himself.
“It’s okay, pup, do you need to nuzzle, I don’t mind….” Shouta whispered, he knew that nuzzling was a self soothing tool for omega’s, hell he nuzzled Hizashi’s chest often. “It’s okay, everything is going to be okay.” Shouta promised, gently carding his fingers through his hair. “It’s been a super stressful day for you, but we're all happy you’re here and your safe”
Tomura whined at that, it couldn’t be true. People would be safer if Tomura was dead. If he….if he died, then all of these people would be safe.
But that isn’t what Shouta said….it isn’t what EraserHead….the most amazing hero ever said.
He said he was happy he was still around.
Happy he was still here.
The soft purring coming from Shouta was so reassuring, so relaxed that before he could stop himself he was nuzzling into Shouta’s chest. Tomura couldn’t even stop the loud purr that erupted from him.
They say there for what felt like an eternity, when a tentative knock came.
“Come in” Shouta called back and Naomasa and Yagi walked into the room and Yagi almost looked like he had seen a ghost.
“So Tomura, I…I have some news….we ran your fingerprints…..and I….I found something interesting” Naomasa sat down and a Yagi sat down to. “Is Tomura Shigaraki an alias?” They all watched at Tomura cocked his head to the side.
“No….that…that is what Sensei said my name was…..” Tomura whispered looking down at an image of a little boy…..his hair was black and his eyes were red. He even had the little scar that Tomura had on his lip. The more he looked at the picture the more he was mesmerized. Then it felt like a thousand bricks smashed him to the floor. “That’s….that’s me” he shivered, grabbing the paper. It was a missing person’s poster. “I….oh my god……” the tears fell and nothing he could do would stop it. “I…..I killed them” he shivered slamming his head down into the fake wood grain.
Naomasa looked at Shouta who looked confused. “What?”
“My family….that’s….that’s why I was on the streets, Shouta…..I remember…..I remember now……I wanted to be a hero….like my grandma…..my sister always said that she was an amazing hero. My father….he….he was against it…..he….he had some….rough forms of punishment…..one night….it was so cold….I could barely feel my fingers…..we….we had a dog” Tomura shivered as the harsh memories played over the inside of his eyelids like he was watching a movie. The scattered memories struggling to make one coherent picture, one coherent storyline. “We….we were playing….I fell……” Tomura whispered, his whole body shaking. “I fell and touched him….the dog….he….he Turned to dust…..and…..and I freaked out….so bad I ran toward the house…..I remember my sister opened the back door, I tripped through….through the door and….I touched her shoulder with my whole hand and…..and within seconds she was gone….” Tomura sobbed into his hands. “I….I didn’t do it on purpose….I didn’t know what was happening….” He cried, he remembered now and fuck….he never wanted to think about this again. He knew sensei had tried wiping his memory of these events multiple times, but everytime someone spoke his real name it was like the curtain being opened the miasma lifting. “My….my quirk manifested…..” he whimpered out biting his lip. “My….my mother and father were horrified…..for obvious….reasons…..I…..” he gagged so hard his body recoiled against the chair. The images were flashing all the dust, all the destruction, all the broken remains. The pure pain of his father beating him within an inch of his life and then throwing him out the door.
“You may as well…..throw me in jail. I’m a fucking piece of trash” Tomura practically roared rising to his feet. “Just end it…you have a gun right? Just shoot me….please just end it for me….I’m so fucking terrible” Tomura crouched his forehead against the edge of the table and his palms were flat against that fake wood grain.
“Honey…..you’re not in trouble for that, unfortunately quirk accidents happen especially to young pups whose quirks come in unexpectedly.” Shouta explained, “and as horrible as you feel right now….your parents kicking you out onto the street at 5 or 6 is worse” Shouta whispered, running his hands again through the light blue locks.
Tomura shook his head, “that….that’s not true….” He whined. “It can’t be true! Don’t you see?! I’m diseased, I ruin everything I touch” Tomura sobbed his fingers sliding against the fake wood squeaking slightly as his hands clenched into fists.
“Shouta’s right.” Naomasa spoke, making Tomura flinch. “You are innocent of crimes you committed as a child and from what I can understand it was a quirk accident,” Naomasa stated, shoving the paperwork back toward Tomura. “But I was curious about your name. Because our official reports from this case say your name is Tenko Shimura.”
The blue haired omega froze and within seconds he was heaving over the trash can once more….
“Tenko Hunny, dinners ready…”
“Tenko heros are just toxic, you will not be one.”
“Tenko, grandpa loves you!”
“Tenko, come on! I want to play outside!”
Tomura shook his head. Sensei…..Sensei…..that fucking man…destroyed everything he touched….just like Tomura, maybe it was comedic justice.
Maybe Sensei knew all along he just wanted to be a hero like his grandma. He just wanted to be good. To be worth something. To be worthy of love and affection that he craved so much.
Sensei….Sensei had stripped him of that, his father….his mother had not cared enough about Tomur…..Tenko to even pretend to care.
So why was Tenko so fucking sad? The omega had no clue, he would never be a hero with such an awful quirk like his…he remembered begging Sensei to make him quirkless and of course the selfish bastard had refused. Tenko couldn’t really make any sense of what was flying through his brain. Each individual thought strand was evaporating the moment he tried to grab it.
“Tenko….Shimura.” The boy shivered again, his fingers squeaked against the fake wood as he balled his hands into fists.
“Yeah, that is your real name….but if you prefer we can still call you Tomura. But I currently have some people calling around to find you a place to stay. You will be under protective custody until we can arrest All for One.” Naomasa rambled and Tenko was only half
He honest to god didn’t care, because he was pretty sure the moment he got out of here and away from Shouta, his miserable existence would be over.
Tenko was done, he couldn't take it anymore.
He was alone.
He was hungry.
He was cold.
He wanted….his nest.
“My nest…” Tenko sobbed curling into a ball, his forehead resting against his knees. It seemed so stupid to be crying at a time like this over a nest….but Tenko couldn’t stop himself….he was miserable.
“After the hospital, we can go grab some nesting stuff” Shouta offered and Nomasa shook his head. Shouta raised an eyebrow at that. “He needs medical attention”
“I understand that Shouta,” Naomasa spoked softly, “nesting materials aren’t a need according to the law….so unless his protectors take him to a nesting store I can’t do anything about it”
Shouta growled, “nests are necessary! It’s in every secondary gender book out there, nests comfort and soothe pups especially pups that have dealt with trauma, omega discrimination is fucked in this country!” Shouta snarled, his vanilla tea scent was pungent.
“My hands are tied here…..” the detective admitted, he at least had the decency to look apologetic. “But I do agree with you” the beta tried to placate the angry omega across from him.
Tenko whined at that. They weren’t going to let him nest….he needed to nest. “Nest?” Tenko shivered, clutching at the fabric of his hoodie.
“We’ll figure something out, Honey” Shouta promised, crouching down next to him, “let’s get in a chair, okay, let’s relax.”
Tenko let himself be moved to the chair, his head down turned and his eyes locked on the floor, when another tentative knock rang through the room.
Naomasa opened the door and Shouta blinked surprised when the familiar chai tea scent filled the air. “Dad?” Shouta whispered out and Haruka walked through the door with a kind smile.
“Hey Sho, Yagi called so I’m here and the lady at the desk told me to come see the omega that would be staying with us for awhile” Haruka spoke softly.
Shouta had to admit that this was unexpected, “Tenko is staying with you?” He questioned with a happy smile, at least he knew Yagi and His dad would provide for Tenko….but would he be comfortable with two alphas.
“Yes, from what the sheriff was telling us. Yagi was pretty adamant about it…Because Tenko’s grandmother was Yagi’s mentor” Haruka explained, a soft smile on the alpha’s face.
Shouta’s mouth dropped open before he could stop himself and Naomasa looked like he was about to fall out of his chair.
Tenko….Tenko couldn’t believe his ears. He was pretty sure this was all a dream and he was gonna wake up any minute from some alpha commanded stupor that someone put him in.
His grandma….was All Mights mentor…..
Fucking All Might. His grandma must have been one big hero. An amazing woman if she could mold the Symbol of Peace.
But the dark sludge of his mind quickly squashed out the hope. And in its place filled with the dark destructive thoughts he would do anything to get rid of.
He didn’t deserve this kindness; he didn't deserve to be treated fairly.
He was a villain.
A fucking vile, disgusting, dirty, nasty, worthless….
Tenko was pulled from his thoughts when he felt a gentle hand grab his he jerked back so fast he was sure he broke something.
“Whoa now, everything is okay, Sweet Pea” Tenko’s red rimmed crimson eyes locked with slate gray and kindness.
The man was practically the spitting image of Shouta, except the few white hairs that peaked through the lucious black. “I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m Haruka Aizawa, I’m Yagi’s boyfriend, it’s nice to meet you” he smiled sweetly, and Tenko almost felt himself calm and the soothing chai scent embracing him.
“I’m…T-Tenko” he stuttered out, biting his lip and looking down at his lap. He could hear Shouta and Naomasa speaking off to the side, but his focus was on Haruka. Tenko hated to admit it, but the alpha’s presence was calming. How could an alpha’s presence be calming?
But the more Tenko stared at the other man the more relaxed he was. Haruka didn’t have a hint of maliciousness in his eyes or his posture. The man's posture was open, honest, and welcoming. Nothing like Sensei's….or Kai’s…..or Himiko's….he felt almost safe. Here. Like the man would never lay a hand on him or anyone for that matter.
“It’s very nice to meet you, Tenko, Yagi should be here in a minute after he signs all the paperwork, then we’ll get you to the hospital for a wellness check up” Haruka squeezed his hand and the younger man found himself just nodding in agreement. “After that, we can go get some rest.” Tenko purred out at the idea of getting some sleep the blue haired omega was flagging in his chair about to collapse from pure exhaustion, he flinched when he felt fingers in his hair, but his eyelids dropped even more as he felt the gentle scratch of nails on his scalp and before he knew it he was falling forward onto something warm and soft.
“Thank you, Dad, he’s been on the verge of a drop for hours” Shouta whispered wiping his eyes, hearing how Tenko was treated in this world was enough to make Shouta want to gag. The poor boy thought that he was the scum of the earth, that he deserved to be treated that way.
Shouta….Shouta just couldn’t take it.
He didn’t care if you were the worst human being on the planet. No one deserved to be raped, molested, alpha commanded, abused, tortured all because some other fucker decided that was what he needed.
What Tenko needed was stability and love.
Not the bullshit he had been dealing with before.
“It’s not a problem, dahlia.” Haruka spoke softly his fingers still scratching Tenko’s scalp softly, the pup nuzzling against him, as he snoozed, “we have enough space at the house so he’ll be comfortable and he’ll have his own floor so to speak” Haruka admitted, his penthouse apartment was ridiculously bougie and paid for by his work, Yagi and Haruka stayed in the downstairs bedroom both to old to continually climb up and down the stairs.
So Tenko would basically get the upstairs to himself, a bedroom, a bathroom, a walk in closet. There was even a second bedroom up there that was completely empty. If he preferred it there.
“That’ll be nice….please make sure he can nest…..I don’t care what the law says….omega and nest users need nests.” He practically pleaded, his own tears falling. Shouta wouldn’t survive without his nest, hell Hitoshi was the same way.
“Dahlia, everything will be okay” Haruka promised, “and after he gets some rest, Yagi and I will take him to get nesting supplies if he wants to” he promised.
Yagi wandered back in the room and rumbled at Haruka the black haired alpha smiled. “All right we have all the paperwork…..we’re gonna take him to the hospital, I have the paperwork so what can and needs to be sent for his case file will be sent your way” Yagi explained to Naomasa. “Also are there quirk cancelling bracelets instead of cuffs? He’s not a prisoner and should not be treated like one” Yagi stated adamantly as Naomasa nodded, wandering back to the lobby. “Are you alright, Shouta?”
“Yeah….I’m….im honestly relieved he’s going to be safe” the omega whispered, “his story is horrible and I know he doesn’t think he deserves any sort of kindness so I can only be happy that he is going to be safe with you two” the omega sighed in relief.
“We will keep him safe, and as healthy as we can, and since Haruka is working from home, he’ll always have someone” Yagi promised with a kind smile. “Are you following us to the hospital?”
“Yeah, my babies and husband are there so it would make sense for me to pick them up.” Shouta teased trying his best to lighten the mood.
Haruka nodded and Yagi smiled, the rest of the time there was pretty painless, Haruka ended up carrying Tenko to the car, the pup still sleeping heavily in the backseat.
They followed Shouta to the hospital, and when they got there they woke Tenko up gently.
The omega still jerked forward struggling to breathe, the nightmares seemed too real and too close, he whined unhappily as Haruka explained that they were at the hospital. “I know, Sweet Pea, but the quicker we get this over with the quicker we can get some sleep” Haruka cooed, and the barely away blue haired boy stumbled from the car. “That’s it good job, bluebell” Tenko purred exhaustedly at the praise as he struggled to stay on his feet.
Yagi was in front of them as they made their way into the hospital. “Chiyo, thanks for meeting us, we need a wellness check up done on Tenko, and “ Yagi leaned forward so he was only speaking into the woman’s ears. “A rape kit”
She nodded letting a smile take over her face. “Come on dearly, we can get this done lickety split. Then you can get some shut eye.” Tenko nodded, shuffling forward behind her, but he paused before he went into the room. Chiyo noticed. “Would you like someone in here with you dearie?”
Tenko nodded his head, but he didn’t have anyone. Who the hell would care enough to hold his hand while he cried because they drew his blood. Or while they checked him over…he knew they were going to look at his junk….thanks to blabbing over and over about his sexual assault like some crazy person. “I….I don’t…” he swallowed thickly.
“Haruka and Yagi are here for you, do you want me to get them?” She offered, the slight reminder that he wasn’t alone seemed to relax the omega slightly. He timidly nodded and sat on the sterile white paper running along the examination table. His fingers ran over the paper enjoying the odd smoothness to it. He really just wanted to lay down and sleep. He didn’t care if he was dying or some shit left that to be a surprise….what did it matter to Tenko.
A light knock then Haruka entered with Chiyo, “Yagi, is checking up on Katsuki, so he wasn’t with me.” The alpha explained as he sat down in the awful brown plastic chair. “But when he’s done if we aren’t done first then he’ll meet us here” The alpha was explaining when Tenko jumped at the cold feeling of the alcohol wipe he whined unhappily.
“I’m sorry, dear.” Chiyo cooed, as she got back to work, the woman was a professional, but it didn’t mean it didn’t break her heart to see such a young man suffering for this long.
Crimson eyes stared at the tray of vials and needles and all he wanted to do was book it out the door. He felt like his feet could carry him all the way to the ocean and then he could just continue his walk off the pier.
“Hey bluebell, can you tell me about you?” Haruka spoke in that calm and soothing tone that Tenko heard at the police station. “What are some things you like?” The man questioned gently, taking Tenko’s hand and rubbing circles onto the back of it to drag his attention away from the little table containing all of the instruments. Haruka rumbled softly trying to get the pup to pay attention to him, he smiled sweetly when Crimson’s eyes met his. “Good pup.” He praised and Tenko chirped, making Haruka smile even wider.
“I….I like waffles…..” He whispered looking at his lap. “With….with Bananas and chocolate sauce…” He admitted biting his lip, Tenko for the life of him could not figure out why he cared….Tenko was worthless.
Haruka smiled at the pip sitting on the table “I had some of the best waffles of my life in France actually when I was there to take pictures of Gallic Roosters for a magazine. They made a blackberry compote thing and it was delicious. What else do you like? I will also make sure we get the stuff to make waffles at home”
Tenko froze at that, did he say home? Tenko…..never really called the bunker or the underground facilities his home...they were just convenient places to hide out and away from heroes. He had never had a home before. But Haruka just referred to his house as Tenko’s…..home….he didn't say his home or Yagi’s home. He said just plain as day home.
“I….my favorite colors are lavender and….and blush pink” The omega stated, looking at his lap. He wanted to slap himself. He knew he was wearing a lavender hoodie underneath his long blac trench coat….but still. “I….I like reading….comic books and playing video games.” He shivered a hard whine escaping him when he felt the needle pierce his skin.
“Hey it’s alright, pup, just look at me” Haruka smiled gently, “Are those the colors you want in your room? We can paint the bedroom, if you want.” Haruka offered, “My landlord won’t care since It's Paid for it.” Haruka offered, it was taking everything in Tenko to not run out of the room screaming because of the needle sitting delicately in his skin.
“I….I don’t want to ruin anything” He whispered, looking at the ground. “Plus….when….when you get rid of me...then you’ll have to fix it and like that's a lot of work….and I am not worth that much effort….just….yeah” Tenko sighed, blinking back the tears that were now streaming down his face. Tenko didn’t understand how he still had tears left to cry.
“Hey Tenko. You’re worth the effort, and you can stay as long as you need to after the protection order is finished. I know Toshinori is okay with it, and it’s my house so even if he isn’t I get the final say” Haruka teased earning a small shy giggle from the blue haired boy. Haruka smiled at him gently, carding his hands through the boy's blue hair.
Tenko whined again when the needle was pulled from the crock of his elbow. Haruka shushed him gently. “Alright dear, I need you to pee in this cup, and then…I’ll need you to put on this gown, so we can do an exam and everything” she explained.
Tenko nodded as he went to the side bathroom doing his business quickly. He placed the cup in a little window and walked back out in the gown shivering. Once he sat on the bed he clung to his clothes nervously, the woman seemed to be out of the room and Haruka was playing on his phone typing away.
He felt light headed and nervous. “Uh…Mr. Aizawa….” Haruka looked up, startled.
“BlueBell, you can call me Haruka, what’s up? Are you okay?” Haruka rose to his feet and Tenko stepped backwards, flinching. “Oh I’m sorry, Sweet Pea, let me sit back down.” Haruka sat down as he watched Tenko’s body language. The alpha had years of practice watching people and animals he could see clear as day how scared Tenko was, how nervous he was, he looked ready to sprint out the door.
“I…I’m thirsty….could….could you get me some water?” Tenko stuttered, his scarily thin arms wrapped around his waist, the quirk cancelling bracelets shining in the light slightly.
“I can, stay here okay” Haruka soothed, “why don’t you come lay down, Chiyo dropped off a blanket for you” Haruka was hesitant to leave the boy alone, but he also looked dead on his feet. He didn’t think he would get very far.
Haruka watched the frail omega make his way across the cold tile, his bare feet padding across the floor as he curled up on the cot. Haruka covered him with the fleece weighted blanket from the omega wing and Tenko was purring and nuzzling into the heated fabric.
The alpha smiled, rising to his feet. “Stay here, pup” he whispered as he left the room.
Tenko purred as he relaxed under the heated weight of the blanket it was so soft Tenko could feel the tears welling in his eyes.
He felt….safe….Tenko shook his head, he couldn’t let his guard down. He couldn’t believe that he was worth any of this kindness because he wasn’t.
He knew he wasn’t worth it. He dozed off under the blanket and the purrs escaping him were embarrassing. But he was just…..so warm…..the blanket was so soft.
Haruka came back with a bottle of water, a grape juice, and a granola bar from the vending machine. His racing heart calmed when he saw the young man still under the blankets fast asleep.
Haruka: He's currently asleep, Buttercup, can you go buy him some sweatpants and a blush pink hoodie? His clothes are filthy and maybe some slippers? The 24 hour store is next door. He’s currently sleeping.
Yagi: Of course, Angel, are we thinking medium and small? Or?
Haruka: a large hoodie if possible he seems more comfortable in oversized things. And for the sweats maybe a medium, make sure they’re soft….
Yagi: Angel I will, after everything we can take him to get his nesting supplies tomorrow.
Haruka: That sounds great, ButterCup, stay safe.
Yagi: Of course you too.
Haruka sat the drinks and food in the chair next to him, he knew that Shouta, Hitoshi, Hizashi, and Katsuki were all in the pediatric wing with Katsuki the boy looked horrendous, the skin on his hands was cracked and broken, he was slurring his words, and barely able to keep his eyes open. His blood pressure was so low the doctor was requiring him to stay for a few days.
Haruka wanted to be mad. He really did, but he also knew from what Yagi was explaining it was not Tenko’s fault or his doing in any way which was the only reason he let Yagi let Tenko in originally….then he actually met the pup.
The omega was darling, docile, and so scared, it broke Haruka’s heart. He flinched at everything his eyes darted to check for exits the moment he sat down and all Haruka wanted to do was protect him.
He knew this exam and everything else was going to be rough on the pup. But when it was over he would be safe. Yagi and Haruka would look after him….they would protect him.
When Chiyo came back in they woke Tenko up and started the exam. The groggy omega relaxed and allowed Chiyo to do everything she needed.
When they did the rape kit, Tenko was sobbing and screaming. Begging for it to be over and Haruka grabbed the pups hand shushing him and rumbling at him, his chai scent soothing and calm.
“No! No!” Tenko shrieked and Chiyo backed off.
“It’s okay, pup, she’s not gonna hurt you, she’s gotta check down there to make sure everything is okay” Haruka wiped the tears from his cheeks.
“We’re going at your pace dear.” Chiyo promised, “no one's gonna push you, we’re almost done.”
Tenko sobbed and nodded his head as the woman finished what she was doing when it was all over. Tenko was whining heavily under his breath and Haruka was whispering to him and running his hands through his blue hair like he used to do when Shouta was sick. “You did such a good job,” he praised. “Now, we just have to get your lab work back and if we’re cleared to go, we can go get some rest.” Haruka promised, making sure to keep the blanket pulled up.
Tenko was silently weeping, his body not even trembling. The boy knew it needed to be done to check his health….but god did he hate it. It was violating in a whole different sense.
Cold hands and sterile equipment. Painful. Though Tenko realized that the doctor wouldn’t hurt him on purpose, plus she had backed off when he had shrieked and cried.
Haruka was chatting with him quietly when their was a knock, Haruka would recognize anywhere. “That’s Toshinori….would I be okay if he came in? He has some stuff for you.”
Tenko nodded, the whines not stopping. “Come in, ButterCup” Toshinori walked in with a bright smile.
“Hey Angel, how are you Tenko?” Yagi questioned sitting down holding a large plastic bag.
“I’m okay…” he whispered the evidence of exhaustion clear on his face. “Want….want to sleep” he whimpered, both men could sympathize with the omega. “Want my…my nest” he whispered, Tenko did not really understand why…..why he wanted his nest. The sanctity of the item had long been lost when people would just jump into it, destroy it, steal blankets from it. Sometimes Tenko assumed it was just because most of the LOV was comprised of alphas so they didn’t understand nest edicate, but Magne….sweet Magne went off on multiple people about it….so they did it to be malicious.
“We’ll take you to get nesting materials tomorrow, pup” Haruka promised gently. “It’s too late now and the store isn’t even open. But we do have some clothes for you.”
“I ran into Chiyo in the hall and she said that you can get changed.” Tagi bent over and rifled through the bag pulling out the leggings and the blush pink hoodie, there were some underwear and socks tucked in there as well.
Tenko purred at how soft the material that was handed to him was. He shuffled toward the bathroom getting changed, the hoodie practically swallowed him and the leggings were also soft and stretchy. The little slippers were nice too.
It was then Tenko realized he actually felt warm. The clothes on him were soft, cozy, and warm. It was so pleasant his inner omega was dancing with joy. Maybe everything would be okay? Haruka seemed like a super nice person and Yagi….Yagi even though he tried to kill him went out and bought all these warm clothes for him…..maybe they cared.
When Tenko walked back out, Haruka was leaning against Yagi, the larger blond pecked a kiss to the crown of his head. Tenko watched with curious eyes, he had never witnessed an alpha and alpha relationship before….but these two….they just seemed to fit together. Haruka smiled at him, “are those okay, Sweet Pea?” He questioned, a slight yawn escaping his lips.
“Yes….thank you, they’re very soft” Tenko admitted as he shuffled back to the examination table popping down on it.
Yagi rifled into the plastic bag once more, “I also grabbed this, sleeping in new places is hard for everyone, so I bought you a friend.” Tenko felt the plush land in his arms and he was met face to face with a little blush pink rabbit with soft fur and in little arms he held a little strawberry.
Tenko was nuzzling the fabric before he even knew what was happening, the scent of mint and eucalyptus filled the air and it was a content, almost happy smell.
Haruka rumbled at Yagi who just wiped the wetness from his eyes. Yagi just wanted everyone to be happy and if he could help Tenko…it was like he was helping his mentor in a way, after watching her death….and experiencing that awful pain that All For One placed upon him. He couldn’t even imagine the kind of torture Tenko had to endure. He was surprised the omega lived through all of it.
The omega was obviously strong and resilient, two things that Yagi admired in a person.
He wanted to help kindle those emotions and feelings. He knew that with the kindness his mentor bestowed upon him, Yagi could do that for Tenko as well. He could nurture and aid this omega in anything he needed, because that was Yagi’s job.
As a mentor and the Symbol of Peace.
“Thank you” Tenko chirped, squeezing the bunny in his arms with a tired yawn.
“You’re welcome, Tenko.” Yagi promised, Haruka smiled up kissing Yagi’s cheek gently, it was amazing to Haruka how sweet and kind Yagi really could be.
The three sat and waited. Tenko curled up on the cot clutching the bunny under the warm blanket purring tiredly.
Haruka could only feel content that Tenko seemed to be in slightly better spirits though he could only assume the raging war in his head. He couldn’t imagine what….what the poor boy was dealing with mentally….how he was probably just struggling to even be here and in the present right now was breaking Haruka’s heart.
Another round of knocks came as Chiyo walked back into the room and everyone froze when she had a sad, but serious look on her face, she pulled over the little stool to sit down in front of the omega, her hand reaching up and grasping Tenko’s softly. “I want to start out with the good things, so you’re in pretty good health besides being malnourished. No STDs, no other diseases, no infections.” Everyone nodded along with her as she read over the paperwork.
Then she swallowed thickly looking straight into those crimson red eyes. “However…..we looked at your blood work and your urine sample….and we did this test….multiple times, dear.” She took a deep breath squeezing his hand, Chiyo hated this part…she hated being the bearer of bad news. How do you tell a rape victim this? Just how? “You’re pregnant.”
Tenko felt like the world fell out from beneath him.
He was pregnant….
He was pregnant with Kai’s….with Kai’s pup……no….no he couldn’t be….
“There are solutions for this….” He heard through his haze of panic.
Tenko’s mind was swimming.
She was suggesting he terminate it?
Tenko could cackle evil in the woman’s face. He was a murderer! What was one more?
He killed his own sister, his own dog, countless poor individuals Sensei wanted him too, what was his own pup?
On my fucking god….his baby….
What the fuck was Tenko thinking?
He couldn’t….he couldn’t be here….he needed to leave….he…..he needed to protect? The pup?
Tenko rose to his feet so abruptly no one knew what to do and before anyone could say anything the blue haired omega was sprinting down the corridor, the bunny plush falling to the floor in his haste.
Tenko’s mind was running wild….he was pregnant.
He was pregnant.
He had a pup now?
What the fuck was he going to do?
With that he sprinted down the hospital corridor and didn’t look back.
Chapter 2: Decisions....Decisions....
Tenko takes sometime to think over....what could happen and what will happen.

As always questions at the end of the chapter.
Until Next Time Lovelies!
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Tenko was not even sure what part of the hospital he was in. He knew it was a stairwell and it was dark and it seemed empty.
Tenko smashed his back into the white painted wall as he slid down taking shuddering breaths as he sobbed, his hands reaching up to rip at his long hair.
His mind couldn’t seem to grasp what was happening.
He was pregnant.
This had to the be the universes way of saying fuck you.
Fuck you, Tenko Shimura.
Tenko quivered as he bit his lip trying to hide the sound of his sobs.
He always assumed he would either die at the hands of Sensei or Kai…..that he would be alone forever.
Probably alone locked away in that dark room….Tenko shivered thinking about being locked back in there. He fucking hated it there, being trapped in his own thoughts, in darkness so dark he couldn’t even see his hand.
He tugged harder at his hair sobbing into his knees
He wasn’t stable enough for a pup.
He wasn’t rich enough for a pup.
He could barely take care of the herbs he had in the kitchen.
Then he froze, Haruka and Yagi wouldn’t….wouldn’t want him to stay now…pregnant omega’s were needy, they required lots of food, lots of nesting materials, lots of other things even he didn’t know.
Where the hell would they put him now?
Would they finally just point blank deal with him and put a bullet in his head?
Tenko whimpered, when he smelled a thunderstorm scent, and a heavy sigh. Tenko just continued to rock and pull his hair, “are you okay?” The light relaxed voice questioned and Tenko’s head shot up off his legs and in front of him was a yellow haired yellow eyed omega, so he smelled like a thunderstorm. “My name is Denki, if you do, if you just want company for a minute I can sit with you” he offered.
Tenko eyed him nervously, but then he smelled it the familiar alpha scent, one of lavender and honey, Katsuki’s brother’s scent. Maybe he was his mate. “I…I’m Tenko,” he replied gently.
“It’s nice to meet you, Tenko, do you mind if I just sit down?” Tenko shook his head quickly, going back to resting his forehead on his knees. “Can I ask why you’re hiding in the stairwell?” Denki smiled gently, letting out a soothing scent.
“I…I found out I’m pregnant….” Tenko whispered sniffing his fingers running along the edges of the tiled squares.
Denki hummed at that, “I’m sorry,” the yellow haired boy scratched at the back of his neck, “I must have misread the tears….I thought you were sad crying….not tears of joy crying, I’m sorry dude! I misread the situation! But congratulations!”
Tenko shook his head, “you didn’t misread the….the distress….it’s my rapist’s baby” Tenko sniffling biting into his bottom lip, almost gagging at the metallic taste.
Tenko listened as his stairwell dwelling companion took in a hissing breath. “Well, I gotta say, Man, that’s unfortunate….but do you want to keep the baby?” Denki questioned with a soft sad smile and Tenko paused.
This random stranger was the first to ask his opinion on the subject, all they had talked about in the room before he fled was “solutions” no one had bothered to see if Tenko wanted the pup. “I….I don’t want to be a murderer….” He whispered out.
Denki quickly shook his head, “hey Ten, it’s your body, your choice…..” the omega soothed, “if you feel that that is the right way for you. Then that’s the way and no one can say otherwise ``Denki promised, squeezing his shoulder gently. “If you want to put it up for adoption that is also your choice” Tenko could feel himself relaxing more and more as the omega spoke. “If you want to raise the baby as yours then that is also your choice, there is nothing wrong with wanting the baby either,” Denki promised, “no matter who helped create the baby at the end of the day the omega carries the baby around and then when it’s born they feed it and nurture it to be an amazing human. And in my opinion, I can see you already care about this pup”
Tenko sniffled, did he care? He hadn’t been set in stone on keeping the baby, or getting rid of the baby, at the moment in his head all he could think was he had Kai’s baby….but maybe Denki was right….maybe the baby would be more like him….or nothing like either of them. Honestly it wasn’t the baby’s fault that they were conceived this way.
“I…I’m really on the fence….I….I don’t know if I want a baby to be stuck with me as it’s mother, I’m a mess” Tenko scrubbed at his face, wiping his tears and snot on the sleeve of the pink hoodie he was wearing.
“You shouldn’t think of yourself that way, from what you’re telling me…you have been through some pretty traumatic shit.” Denki smiled, which only caused Tenko to let out a wet laugh, if only this omega knew. “I think anyone would struggle with this,” the yellow haired omega admitted, leaning back against the wall. “And no one will be mad at what you chose.”
“How can you just say shit like that?” Tenko hiccupped, his body trembling. “Of course people will be mad at what I decide….I’m the villain in this story….this baby is my fault” he whimpered harshly scrubbing at his neck.
“I think you have it mistaken, man.” Denki whispered looking over at him with kind considerate eyes. “In this situation you and the baby are the victim. Your rapist is the villain, not you, and I know it doesn’t feel that way right now all things considered.” Denki reassured. “The stress is getting to you, plus it’s like 3:10 am or some shit” the omega chuckled, “you should sleep on it…before you make your decision” denki promised lifting his arms above his head cracking his back. “And I can always give you my number if you want to talk.”
Tenko didn’t understand how this yellow haired omega sitting next to him could be so friendly, Tenko had yelled at him, sobbed next to him, and even glared at him, but he took it all in stride, “I…I don’t have a phone…” he admitted blushing looking down at his lap. He had left his cell phone back at the LOV headquarters along with basically everything he owned, he would be burning the clothes he wore here for safety reasons.
“It’s okay, I can write it down for your home phone or give you my business card….that would probably be easier huh?” With that Denki fumbled around in his wallet for his black business card shoving it into Tenko’s hoodie pocket, then he grasped his hand giving a gentle squeeze. “Now let’s get off this cold hard floor, and get out of this dingy stairwell.” The yellow haired omega stood up holding out his hand.
Tenko hesitantly took it, “I….I don’t want to go back….I don’t want to face the reality yet….” He whispered out his hands curling up in his hoodie pocket.
Denki turned to smile, “then take a walk to clear your head. That always helps me after fights with villains and stuff” the yellow haired omega grinned as he started heading up the stairs. “I have to go find my alpha though. Hopefully I’ll hear from you soon, Tenko!” With that the door opened and shut with a click.
Tenko was sure that people were looking for him, he was a fugitive after all. A disgusting villain. He sighed as he rose to his feet wiping the dust off the overly soft leggings he was wearing as he tiptoed up the stairs and out of the stairwell, he pulled the hood up over his pastel blue hair, and started to wander.
He didn’t really know where he was and his mind kept drifting to one thing.
He was fucking pregnant with his rapist baby, and he was disgusted with himself.
How could he have let Kai do that?
How was he never strong enough?
Then came the whys.
Why was Tenko so weak?
Why was he deemed worthless so young?
Why was he so unlucky?
But Tenko had to pull himself out of that, it still wasn’t the pups fault that he was so unlucky, that they were a byproduct of rape, that Tenko was a fuck up through and through. That he was just the pinnacle of disgust.
Tenko tried not to panic as he continued to wander the white vacant halls. Everyone else who was stuck in this godforsaken place was most likely already asleep at 3 am. Tenko wished he was asleep….or dead, at the moment he didn’t know which he preferred.
His feet kept dragging him down the ugly white speckled linoleum hallways, his eyes counting the tiles at his feet. His nose twitched once again at that harsh chemical smell…it was making him slightly light headed….he could tell the disinfectant was struggling…..It was struggling to purify the tainted soul wandering the halls.
Tenko paused when he noticed the white tile had turned to baby blue and the walls were no longer sterile white, but duckling yellow.
It smelled calmer here, relaxed, and pleasant. It made the gaping chasm in Tenko’s chest feel warm and relaxed, he wandered some more in this more relaxed space, when he stumbled into an open door that had a name tag on it Katsuki….he had found Katsuki’s room of all rooms and he couldn’t stop his feet from moving.
Katsuki was curled up holding a black stuffed kitten, a large green blanket covered in dragons was on top of him and his hands were bandaged. “Toma?” Katsuki slurred out looking up, his eyes were still hazy and confused. Which devastated the other omega. “Wha doin?”
“I was just walking around pup.” Tenko whispered sitting in the chair next to the bed, he was curious where the pups parents were, they were probably dealing with the police themselves and the hospital was a safe place. “How are you feeling?”
Katsuki shivered, “I…not good….” The pup admitted trying to get the blanket tighter around himself. “Been frowing up….mama goed to get me juice” he sniffled cuddling the plush closer to himself.
“I’m sorry Hunny,” Tenko sniffled, wiping his own eyes, if only he could have gotten Katsuki out sooner, if only he knew how bad it was going to get, if only he could have just ran away faster.
“Is no yo fault” Katsuki promised sluggishly, shivering. “You sabed me. Wike a hero” the pups praised and Tenko’s heart shattered, he wasn’t a hero, he was a villain.
“I’m not a hero, Katsuki,” Tenko whispered to the pup.
“Toma….will you pet ma hair? Pwease?” The pup questioned his red eyes teary and Tenko nodded, scooting forward his hands delicately running through the pups blond locks.
Tenko couldn’t stop himself from thinking of doing this with his own pup. He couldn’t stop thinking of all the possibilities, would the pup be an alpha? An omega? A beta? Would they take after Kai….or would they take after Tenko? What quirk would they have?
“Toma….why you cryin?” Katsuki whispered looking up at the man.
Tenko sniffled, “I found out that….that there is a baby in my belly” he admitted biting his lip. His maroon eyes locked onto Katsuki’s ruby red.
Katsuki smiled, wide and bright right at him. His little bandaged hand reached down to rest on Tenko’s tummy softly. “You’re gonna be a mama, Toma, she’s gonna love you….foreva and eva” Katsuki promised his bright red eyes hazy once more.
“She?” Tenko questioned gently.
Katsuki nodded his head, “she….she’s gonna be so nice….to” Katsuki slurred, his hands shaking. Tenko gently tucked the blanket tighter around the pup and he practically leapt from the chair when he heard someone clear their throat behind him.
Tenko turned to look at Shouta who was giving him a soft smile. “You know, pup, people are searching the hospital for you” he admitted carrying a carton of peach juice and a bag of salted chips over to the bed, he climbed up moving Katsuki onto his chest and lap, the pup purring loudly as he nuzzled into Shouta.
“I….I just needed some time to myself….” Tenko admitted wringing his fingers together, “it’s hard to figure things out with people staring at me” Tenko sighed, scrubbing his hands over his face.
“What are you trying to figure out, Tenko?” Shouta questioned gently as he held the carton of juice bringing the straw up to his pup’s lips. Katsuki slurped the juice slowly, only gagging slightly when the juice hit the back of his throat funny. “Shhhh, Kitty, you’re alright.”
“I…I….fuck” Tenko hissed as his tears betrayed him and streamed down his face. Shouta just watched patiently, letting Katsuki snack and drink his juice. “I’m pregnant….with Kai’s baby….and” Tenko could practically feel his brain spiraling. “And the first words out of the doctor's mouth were solutions….it’s not the pup’s fault that I was too weak to fight the commands, that I was too weak to run” he sobbed, his mint scent was distressed and troubled.
“Tenko, deep breaths, sweetheart.” Shouta reached out with his hand gently squeezing the other man’s shoulder. “Being commanded is not your fault, and please don’t think it is” he whispered, his vanilla scent was calm and soothing. “Also being pregnant isn’t terrible, it’s not a sign you’re weak in any way. Now what would you like to do with the baby?” He questioned gently, Tenko shivered as he thought more and more about it.
“I…I don’t know….but I don’t want to murder it.” He sniffled, “not…not that there's anything wrong with abortions….I just can’t do that.” He swallowed thickly. “Not after everything” the mere idea of killing someone or anything made him nauseous.
“And that’s okay, you could always put the baby up for adoption, or you can keep them” Shouta offered, and Tenko wrenched his head up to stare at the other man.
Shouta thought he could take care of a pup? Was the raven haired omega crazy? Tenko was dangerous. Tenko was disgusting. there was no way he would be allowed to keep the baby.
“You….I….you really think I could care for a pup?” Tenko spat out, his body trembling. “I….I have nowhere to go….no one is going to want an omega with a pup.” He laughed, it was a gut wrenching, heart shattering laugh that escaped Tenko. His eyes were swimming and his head was pounding.
“Tenko, you do have somewhere to go, My dad and Yagi both want you to stay with them. The baby isn’t going to change that, they have both raised and or helped raise pups in the past, so you wouldn’t be alone.” Shouta explained, “if that is what you are worried about. Plus Hizashi, Hitoshi, and I…”
“An me mama!” Katsuki pouted as he shivered, Shouta cooed at him kissing his son’s forehead, wrapping him in the blanket to keep him warm.
“And Katsuki, are all here to help, no matter the decision, and my father already told me that if you need to stay for years he would let you, he’s not one to turn away a person in need” Shouta explained, shushing Katsuki slightly, as he scratched at his arm. “It’s okay, Kit-Kat, go to sleep baby” Shouta purred, holding his baby close.
“Cold mama.” Katsuki whined unhappily. Shouta rocked him gently wrapping the dragon blanket all the way around the pup and then pulled the comforter up.
“Why are you all being so nice to me?” Tenko growled slightly, “I’m just a fucked up villain” the omega sighed.
“Tenko, everyone deserves a second chance and that includes you” Shouta whispered, looking down at his pup. “Plus if you hadn’t brought Katsuki back to me….the doctors are saying he would have died.” He swallowed thickly looking down at his pup. “Hizashi and I struggled for years to have a pup…” Shouta whispered, his hands running over Katsuki’s blond hair.
“But Hitoshi?” Tenko raised an eyebrow. Shouta smiled at him with wet eyes. “He’s older than Katsuki”
“We adopted Hitoshi, not that we love him any less because of that” Shouta reassured quickly, “hell people say he looks more like our pup than Katsuki does” he admitted, Tenko watched as Shouta clung to the small omega perched in his lap. “I…I’m just so thankful that you took the risk” he whispered, tears dropping down the man’s face as he held onto his sleeping pup.
“You shouldn’t even have to thank me in the first place….they ever should have touched him.” Tenko grumbled.
“We’ll they did and you saved him” Shouta whispered leaning back, Tenko could hear the purrs from Katsuki as he was snuggled by his mama.
Tenko realized he…he wanted that. He wanted to have someone who would just love him for him….someone who wouldn’t judge him….
But he was also a realist, the pup in Tenko’s belly deserved someone better for parents. Kai and him just weren’t the right fit to raise anything healthy, and he would do anything in his power to stay away from Kai.
He would kill to keep this pup safe, and Tenko knew then and there that maybe a pup wasn’t in his best interest.
Which shattered his souls into a thousand pieces.
“Shouta….” Tenko whispered out looking at the linoleum floor.
“What’s up, Tenko?” Shouta questioned gently with a sniffle.
“Would….would you kill for your pup?” Tenko swallowed thickly, he knew it was a long shot, Shouta Aizawa, was not a mass murder like he was. He was a kind and brilliant hero.
“Yes…..without hesitation” the omega admitted looking at his baby. “I don’t know if it’s omega biology or….or if it’s just me….but if someone tried to harm my babies….I would do everything in my power to protect them. If that meant having to kill someone to save them….then…yeah….yeah I would” Shouta looked at Tenko with soft eyes.
Tenko felt like he was riding a rollercoaster of emotions.
“It’s not bad that I feel that way too?” Tenko questioned looking up, his body trembling.
“Of course not, honey, that’s your pup inside you, whether you keep them or not and wanting to protect them in a natural thing” Shouta explained gently, “I guess I can only speak from experience, but Katsuki got lost once and I panicked, had the whole school on lock down. Like mother’s instincts are crazy like that” Shouta admitted with a tired yawn.
“I’m gonna head back” Tenko whispered, standing up slowly. His crimson eyes raked over the pair on the bed. He could only hope that everything would turn out the way it was supposed to.
“Alright, we’ll be here if you need anything.” Shouta promised with a sleepy smile, Katsuki was snoring softly against his mama’s chest.
Tenko nodded as he walked out of the room, dimming the lights as he passed. He would have to find his own way back to the room.
His mind continued to wander as he paced the dimly lit halls of the hospital. His slippers shuffled against the tile.
What was he going to do?
How was he going to handle this?
What was he going to do if Yagi and Haruka insisted that he terminate the pregnancy? Could they make him since he was in their care?
A wave of anxiety settled over him, He would just have to be blunt and honest. He was just going to have to say what he was thinking….He was just gonna have to….
“Oh thank god, Tenko!” Tenko’s head whipped up coming face to face with Haruka the alpha’s gray eyes were red rimmed and his cheeks were wet, “I was so scared you left the hospital, bluebell.” He admitted and Tenko did not expect the warm arms that wrapped around him in a hug. “I bet that was really overwhelming…..don’t worry we can deal with it however…” He started.
“I….I don’t want to kill it….it’s not its fault” Tenko whimpered, biting his lip looking down toward the floor.
Haruka hummed, acknowledging he heard him, which Tenko is grateful for. “I never expected you to want to,” The man explained gently. That made Tenko pause, did Haruka not see that he was a murderer? That he was trash? That he was damaged beyond repair?
“What?” He whispered out tears already falling down his cheeks.
“I nor Yagi expected that in fact, Yagi….may have ripped into Chiyo once you ran out the door.” Haruka admitted gently, leading Tenko down the hall slowly. Letting them stroll through the pain and unease that was settling around them. “Do you have a plan?” Haruka started.
“I….I don’t….but I know I don’t want anything to kill it….I mean….Shouta said adoption…..or….or he...he said that….maybe I could...um” He shivered, was he really going to admit to the alpha that was basically going to be taking care of him that he wanted another mouth to feed?
“Could what, SweetPea?” He whispered, running his hand through Tenko’s hair.
“That maybe I could keep….it” He whispered looking up at the alpha with wide hopeful eyes.
“That of course is always an option.” Haruka agreed softly with a smile. “We need to go back and get an ultrasound done on you.” The alpha explained with a soft smile.
“But wait...you’re okay with that? With me wanting to keep a baby when I am such a horrible and disgusting whore…”
“Tenko!” Haruka swiftly maneuvered himself in front of him. His hands gently rested on the omega’s shoulders. “You aren’t any of those things.” The alpha stated with so much conviction that Tenko almost believed him. “And you aren’t a whore….your situation is unique and you deserved better, but Yagi and I are here to try and make sure you are safe, healthy and first of all cared for. If you feel like putting the pup up for adoption is the best choice we will respect that, if you want to keep the pup we will be there every step of the way and at every appointment. It takes a village to raise a pup, BlueBell.”
Tenko felt the tears fall before he could stop them. He had never heard someone talk so positively about him before.
Did Haruka really feel those things about him?
The alpha really did seem to care, and he really did seem to want what was best for Tenko.
And maybe somewhere deep deep down….Tenko believed him.
Well what did we think?! :) was the surprised guest a good one?

(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
Tenko slowly wandered down the darkly lit corridors of the hospital's pediatric wing, Haruka was just talking quietly next to him.
Tenko was not even sure what he was talking about. His mind was stuck on one topic and one topic alone with his baby.
His little one.
It was like a strange sense of relief washed over Tenko the moment Haruka had stated he had time to figure out what he wanted. That no one was going to force the omega to get rid of the pup. To get rid of this precious being that came from something so horrible.
It relieved Tenko to know that at least Haruka was on his side. That the older alpha had his back when it came to this. He could only hope that Yagi felt the same way.
“Tenko. Take a deep breath” Haruka instructed and once Tenko took the calming breath, his red eyes looked into Haruka’s gray ones and all he could see was kindness and understanding.
When was the last time someone looked at him with this unwavering kindness?
It was a strange thing really. To see someone actually care about him.
“We’re here, I know the ultrasound machine is in there as well.” Haruka explained softly and all Tenko did was nod.”there is no need to be scared…..I know you’re on the fence about what to do, but the ultrasound should still be done to make sure everything is going well in there” Haruka smiled kindly.
Tenko felt his hands trembling, and the nerves and anxiety were trying to escape from his throat. Even the butterflies were dancing in his belly.
Or was that the pup?
Tenko shook his head. He had to be delusional. He knew better than to hope that everything was okay. He was Tenko Shimura after all. One of the most hated men in Japan. He used to be one of the most wanted men in all of Japan.
Tenko was pulled from his thoughts when the door clicked open as Haruka opened the door, Yagi looked up at them with red rimmed eyes and Chiyo at least looked a bit ashamed.
“Oh thank god.” Yagi took a deep breath, rising from his chair “we were all worried about you” the retired hero stated, hugging Tenko gently.
There was no malice there, just warmth and a feeling of security. “I’m alright….just needed to clear my head.” Tenko admitted his hand resting on his stomach by the inside of his hoodie pocket. Tenko swore he could feel the pup through his skin.
Chiyo stood up and walked over grabbing his hand gently, “I am sorry, Dearie, I never should have assumed that you would want to terminate that was really rude of me and I apologize”
Tenko looked at her like a gaping fish. “It….I….” He stuttered out. He had no clue what to say, the woman wasn’t wrong, he probably shouldn’t have a pup, but fuck he….he didn’t even know what he wanted.
Tenko felt a hand gently squeeze his shoulders. “It’s okay, bluebell, why don’t get lay on the table for the ultrasound?” Haruka questioned gently.
With that Tenko laid down on the table, his sweater riding up slightly as Chiyo turned on the machine. “Alright, this will be a little cold, dearie” she explained gently, when the gel touched Tenko’s skin, a hiss escaped his lips. “Sorry.” She smiled, placing the transducer on his stomach.
Tenko just watched the grainy screen waiting for something and then he swore the image of a little person just appeared and Tenko felt the sudden reality of it all.
He was pregnant.
Oh fuck! He was pregnant!
His crimson eyes couldn’t leave the undeniable proof that was on the screen. His mind ran through every random possibility that could happen, even though his mind was racing his body was still.
He flinched when he felt another transducer pushed into his skin, and then a noise filled the room, it was rapid, it was harsh, it was….beautiful.
Tears dripped from Tenko’s eyes, he…..he was staring at perfection, even though the picture was grainy and they were only a blob. They were perfect.
“Would you like to know the sex?” Chiyo asked quietly, all Tenko could respond with was a dumb nod. It didn’t particularly matter to Tenko what the baby’s sex was, but he was curious. “This baby is a girl”
Tenko let out a wet laugh.
“You’re gonna be a mama, Toma, she’s gonna love you….foreva and eva”
Katsuki’s words rattled around in his mind, the pup was right, right on the money.
He was carrying a baby girl inside of him.
A baby girl.
He sniffled, wiping his eyes almost roughly, but his eyes continued to linger on the little screen and his ears listened to that rapid heart beat.
“She looks healthy, and you’re around I wanna say two and a half months” she maneuvered the wands like an expert and Tenko just stared in awe.
He heard sniffling off to the side and his head barely turned from the screen, but Haruka was tearing up and Yagi was all smiles.
It eased the uneasiness that seemed to permanently settle over Tenko. “We’re so happy she’s healthy, Young Tenko.” Yagi explained leaning over to squeeze his bicep gently.
Tenko didn’t even know how to react, these two men were happy for him.
They were happy that Tenko was happy.
They….Tenko didn’t deserve that.
This baby deserved a healthy….life away from him and the toxic sludge that seemed to hang around Tenko wherever he went.
The blue haired omega wanted to rip his own throat out, the waves of happiness and the waves of despair seemed to smash into him. His emotions were a whirlwind and in the destruction lay his confusion and indecisiveness.
Did he keep the baby? And hope that Yagi and Haruka were there for them?
Did he put the baby up for adoption? And hope that she ended up with someone who was kind and loving like Shouta and Hizashi, not someone horrid like Kai.
What the fuck was the right decision?
Tenko just didn’t know, all he knew was the baby was safe and healthy, and he would do everything in his power to make sure she stayed that way. “Can…can I have a picture of that?” The omega whispered and the beta smiled at him.
“Sure, how many do you want?” She questioned softly.
“Just….just one…..I don’t have anyone else that would want one” he admitted and she nodded.
Tenko could take his eyes off the screen. He was so tired and drained from all the events today, he was given a clear bill of health, a pregnancy confirmation, and two people who actually seemed to care about his well being. He felt the tears fall as his eyes fluttered shut, he knew Haruka and Shouta would keep him safe, he didn’t have much else to think about except falling asleep.
The drowsiness blanketed him as his heart rate slowed, his pup was okay.
His little girl was safe.
Not his, the little girl was okay.
With that thought Tenko drifted off to sleep to the sound of the rapid and healthy heart beat of the pup.
Tenko was confused as he looked around a large meadow filled with sunflowers and honeysuckle. The air was clean and crisp, warm and bright.
He was sitting there holding in his lap a little stuffed butterfly, it’s wings were an iridescent white fabric with little well loved frayed edges, it’s body a pastel yellow and the butterflies antenna were gold and iridescent. It’s little plastic eyes were scuffed and well loved but a sparkly pastel pink color. He held the butterfly close, like he knew how important it was.
“Mommy!” Tenko jumped at the high pitched little squeal, Tenko turned and was met with the most beautiful little girl he had ever laid eyes on. “Look! Look! Is a butterfly!” Sitting perched on the littles girl's hand was a monarch butterfly, vibrant orange, black and white clashed with her beautiful crimson red overall dress.
Tenko just stared flabbergasted at the mere beauty of this pup. He even smiled when he heard her little rumbles.
She was an alpha.
Tenko was surprised to see an alpha handle something so delicately. “Mommy, can we take the butterfly home, to Grandpa Haruka’s house?”
Tenko looked around for the child’s mother, his eyes only landing on open fields of sunflowers and honeysuckle.
Tenko jumped when he felt a little hand touch his cheek. He turned and was met with those sweet crimson eyes. “Mommy…..are you having those bad thoughts again?” She whispered, and Tenko purred, leaning into her small palm. “Don’t worry, I’ll protect you, Mommy! Is my job as an alpha!” she grinned and Tenko reached forward delicately running his hands through her pale gray hair, his eyes lingering on the small horn in her forehead, and god did she have a beautiful smile.
“No bad thoughts, hummingbird” he promised, and Tenko had to admit that that was the truth… he was gobsmacked. She was just perfect in every way.
Her light and sweet voice.
Her crimson red eyes were so full of love and life.
Her long pale locks.
And of course the little horn on her forehead.
She was perfect in every way. He was curious he had to know.
“Hummingbird, what is your name?” The little alpha cocked her head to the side curiously and giggled.
“Mommy! You’re so silly! My name is Eri Shimura.” Tenko felt the tears fall from his eyes.
“Eri…..you’re just so perfect” Tenko spoke out softly, the tears cascading down his cheeks as he pulled her close hugging her tightly like he was afraid any moment she would disappear into the pollen filled air. He could smell the milky scent of her mixed with honeysuckle and jasmine. “Please don’t leave me.” He begged and the little alpha kissed his cheek and wiped away his tears.
“I won’t leave you, Mommy, we’re stuck together forever” she promised with that sweet smile. “That’s what you always tell me and Daddy!” Tenko raised an eyebrow and off in the distant field stood a man Tenko had never seen before.
His skin was a pale lavender, his hair was curly and a darker shade of purple, he had two horns that swished and curved out the side of his head and toward the back of it, his eyes were black with white irises, his ears were slightly pointed and his cheeks had a spattering of white freckles.
The man’s scent was of cardamom and ginger, Tenko found himself purring at the soft and spicy smell.
The man walked over crouching down slowly, “are my beauties ready to go?” Tenko about, passed out from the thick Italian accent. He was perfect.
“Daddy, mommy is being silly again.” Eri giggled and the man just smiled. “Having a bad thoughts day”
“Is that so, mela?” He questioned Eri and the little girl nodded her head.
“Well Vita Mia,” those white and black eyes locked onto Tenko, “don’t worry, I will protect you both” the alpha promised, leaning forward and gently kissing his forehead. “We are a family after all”
Tenko felt the tears.
He had a family?
Who was this alpha that treated him like a delicate flower?
Just….what was happening?
Tenko rose to his feet with Eri on his hip, the little pastel yellow plush held tightly to her chest.
The alpha wrapped his arm around Tenko’s waist oh so softly, “let’s get you home, Vita Mia.” The group started walking through the field of sunflowers and honeysuckle when the bright warm air started to dim slightly.
The alpha delicately extracted Eri from his arms and Tenko was frozen in place as the two continued walking and chatting with each other.
But Tenko couldn’t follow. His feet wouldn’t move. He was stuck. “WAIT! WAIT!!!” Tenko screamed more tears falling from his eyes. “Don’t leave me! please!” He begged, and the two turned, both having sweet smiles on their beautiful faces.
“Mommy! Don’t worry! We will see you soon! I promise!” Eri waved, her little butterfly flapping in the air.
The purple haired alpha gave him a sad, but sweet smile. “Vita Mia, we will see each other again. I promise. Ti voglio bene” he whispered.
“I love you too…..both of you” Tenko sobbed, the two disappeared into the air as a group of butterflies, they were vibrant shades or red and purple, the field started to dull and turn cold, Tenko was all alone.
The flowers were Disintegrating around his feet, the sun was quickly covered by clouds.
Tenko could see the field melting around him and he just started running. Screaming.
His heart was smashing into his ribs as he sobbed trying to get to the sunshine field he was in before and before he knew it the melting field was catching up with him and Tenko plummeted into the dark abyss.
Tenko woke up with a start, his hands clinging onto the crisp white sheets on the bed he was in.
Tenko raised an eyebrow at that, where the fuck was he?
“Eri?” Tenko called out, confused, why was he so confused? He shuffled around looking for the beautiful little girl he swore he was just holding.
What if she got lost?
What if she got hurt?
What if Kai got her?
“Eri?!?” He screeched once more, he whined when the door opened and the chai tea scent fluttered around the space.
Red met gray and Tenko started to sob his hand going toward his head gripping onto his blue hair. “Bluebell, you’re okay,” Haruka promised, crouching down at the end of the space.
Tenko had wedged himself between the wall and the king sized bed, his knees practically pressed to his chest. “I can’t find her” Tenko sobbed his hands shaking and Haruka raised an eyebrow.
“Who can’t you find, sweet pea?” Haruka questioned gently.
“Eri…..she….she was right here….I swear…..I” Tenko hiccupped his hands trembling as gripped his hair.
“Who is Eri, bluebell?” Haruka questioned, keeping his voice soft as he moved toward Tenko slowly not wanting to startle the omega.
“My baby….she said….she said I was her mommy” Tenko hiccuped rocking himself back and forth.
Haruka nodded. “Eri is still in your belly, Tenko” he promised, softly grasping the omega’s hand to place on his stomach. “She’s still growing” he explained and that seemed to settle Tenko. The omega sniffled, wiping his eyes.
“She was so perfect, Haruka…..just so beautiful and lovely.” He swallowed, leaning his head back against the night stand. “I….she oh my god” he hiccuped his hands clinging onto the pink hoodie so tightly his knuckles were white.
“Of course she’s gonna be perfect.” The alpha agreed, “she has a strong omega for a mother” he praised and Tenko sniffled wiping his red eyes.
“You’re too nice to me” Tenko whispered, looking over at the man.
“I’m just being honest” Haruka smiled and Tenko felt the warmth. All Tenko wanted to do was blurt out that she called him Grandpa Haruka in his dream, but he didn’t want to make things uncomfortable; he already was dealing with too much all at once. “Do you want to tell me about her?” Haruka offered and Tenko caught himself nodding, his hair flopping about.
“She was beautiful, Haruka.” Tenko whispered wiping his eyes, “she had beautiful red eyes, pale white hair, and god she had a little horn on the corner of her forehead. She was so happy, and delicate with everything. She called me mommy. She was a little alpha” he admitted with a wet laugh as he ran his hands through his hair. “She…she was so nice and sweet” he sniffled looking down at the black leggings. Tenko shook his head. “I’m crying over a dream” the omega chuckled, shaking his head.
“You know, a lot of tribes I have visited throughout my years of traveling believe that the omega is connected to the child to the point they can almost speak with each other. Maybe Eri was just letting you know she’s okay?” Haruka offered with a kind smile and Tenko looked down at his lap.
“She deserves better than me,” Tenko admitted, looking up at the speckled white ceiling. “I can’t give her what she deserves…”
“Tenko, you just escaped from one of the most terrifying places I have ever heard of. You’re strong. Mind, body, and soul. You pulled yourself out of that hell to save Katsuki and you, that takes guts, BlueBell.” Haruka stated, a soft smile on the alpha’s face.
“How is Katsuki?” Tenko questioned looking over at Haruka.
“He’s alright, his speech is still slightly slurred and he’s still really nauseous so they’re keeping him another night, but otherwise he’s okay, he was talking to me on the phone earlier all about his new friend Toma” Haruka smiled with a slight laugh, “I told him your name was Tenko, but I think he was still a little too out of it. To properly try”
“Yeah he was really struggling when we talked yesterday, he told me my pup was a girl, and I about died when he ended up being correct.” Tenko admitted with a slight shy smile.
“Kids just know shit don’t they.” Haruka smiled sweetly, “are you feeling up to going to the nesting store today?” Haruka questioned and Tenko’s eyebrows shot to his hairline.
“I….I can have a nest here?” He whimpered, wiping his eyes.
“Of course you can, sweet pea, why wouldn't you be able to?” The alpha questioned with a cock of his head.
“Kai used to tear my nests up, and….and would say only weak omega’s needed nests….i've learned to live without it…..my omega doesn’t really feel safe anywhere” he admitted with a timid shrug.
“Yagi and I will never touch your nest, we will also never scent anything you don’t want scented.” Haruka promised, “this upper level is all yours, we moved downstairs because Yagi can’t handle the stairs, bad knees and all” Haruka teased, making Tenko giggle.
“I would love to….but I don’t have any money” he admitted biting his lip. “I don’t know when I could pay you back”
Haruka just laughed, shaking his head. “Tenko, Yagi and I both have enough money for multiple families, let us help you, and don’t even worry about the money, okay?” Haruka stated and Tenko bit his lip, but nodded.
“Okay” he whispered, the rest of the morning seemed to go by in a blur, Yagi was super friendly and kind.
He had gone out and bought Tenko more hoodies and leggings in various pastel colors.
Tenko’s personal favorite was the mint green one with bunny ears on the hood, and he wouldn’t lie, he let them both scent it before he put it on, the chai tea and the blueberry pie smell made his omega relax.
So he was dozing in the back of the car while Haruka drove them towards a local nesting store which was something Tenko did not know existed.
The heat from the car was enveloping Tenko and he just enjoyed being warm, he also enjoyed listening to the light chatter from the front and the loving gestures Yagi and Haruka did for each other.
They honestly just fit and it was so nice to see.
When they pulled up Tenko looked at the sign of the nesting store and giggled. “Nests and More, very original” he muttered to himself as he followed Yagi and Haruka into the store and the moment Tenko’s eyes landed on all the soft and plush materials his heart was racing and his eyes were glowing.
Yagi quickly stepped forward grasping Tenko’s shoulder, he gave him a soft smile. “Omega,” Tenko chirped at him which made Yagi rumble. “We’re gonna go look at stuff together okay?”
Tenko nodded his fingers wringing together. Yagi looked at Haruka who just smiled. “I….this is normal right?” The blond questioned gently.
“Yes, when I took Shouta the first time when he was 5 or so, the boy leaned so hard into his secondary gender he was almost nesting in the middle of the department store” Haruka smiled as they followed closely Haruka making sure to hold onto Tenko’s hand.
The blue haired open wandered his fingers grazing over the blankets as they passed.
Tenko stopped as he yanked a tiger printed blanket, purrs erupted from him and he looked at Haruka. “You.” He chirped out, placing the blanket in the cart Yagi had grabbed.
Haruka chuckled gently, “thank you, Tenko” the alpha knew that meant it symbolized him. Tenko continued to peruse the blanket section happily little chirps and purrs could be heard, he grabbed a black and yellow striped blanket along with a rainbow one with kittens on it.
Yagi and Haruka were pretty sure they knew who those blankets represented.
Tenko paused looking at the massive wall of blankets in front of him, his eyes were wide and full of excitement, the blankets were all video game themed and Tenko…..well Tenko loved Video Games, especially puzzle games and his eyes landed on the perfect fleece blanket he gently tugged it out printed across the black blanket with white lettering all it said was -THE CAKE IS A LIE- Tenko instantly fell in love. He couldn’t get enough as he grabbed a few more random video game blankets. “Do you like video games, BlueBell?” Haruka questioned and Tenko nodded almost hesitantly.
“Yeah….” He chirped, “was safe” he admitted biting at his bottom lip, if Tenko could he would have taken the whole wall of video game blankets.
“Do you play on a system or the computer?” Tenko could barely focus on the conversation with Haruka as his eyes lingered on all the soft materials.
“I….I built the computer and had a switch….cause Animal Crossing” he slurred out, ripping the small companion cube plush off the shelf. “It wasn’t….great….but it was mine” he whispered, remembering how he would pull computers and things out of dumpsters to get parts it took ages before he had a working computer, and access to video games. He was embarrassed about it, but he had managed it.
He built it successfully. “Would you like something like that?” Haruka questioned and Tenko cocked his head confused.
“I left it all at the hideout….” He admitted thinking about his refurbished switch he had paid for by returning pop cans. It had been covered in stickers and little notes in sharpie from Twice. “And I’m sure the police raided it already….and my stuff was probably destroyed” he shivered as he squished the cube in his hands, purring at the soft texture.
Haruka nodded gently, Tenko watched him turn to Yagi and they were talking. Tenko's mind was too cloudy to really pay attention as Yagi wandered off, The Omega let out a whine and Haruka rumbled deeply. “He’s just going to get a few things, let’s keep shopping” The alpha prompted leading the younger man through the nesting store.
More blankets were thrown into the cart after Haruka prompted the omega multiple times reassuring him that he could and should get whatever he wanted.
Tenko paused at the exotic nest section curiously cocking his head to the side as he ran his fingers over the orange feather boa hanging from the wall, the feathers were so soft, and so gentle against his fragile skin. “Have?” He looked up with curious red eyes and Haruka rumbled.
“Go ahead BlueBell” he nodded, Tenko pulled the soft feather boa and placed it in the cart, more things were shoved into the cart, at Haruka’s insistence.
Tenko could actually feel his omega happily pacing back and forth, purring and chirping. Tenko swayed slightly leaning into the alpha’s side. “Thank you” he whispered, wiping his eyes as they watered.
Haruka was a godsend.
Yagi was too.
Both alpha’s had been a positive push Tenko needed, he felt safe and secure and like he belonged there.
For once in Tenko’s life he felt like he belonged. Like he could stay without worrying about someone hurting him, or belittling him, and his omega knew. His omega knew that these men were safe and would never harm him.
It was refreshing.
It had him relaxing and feeling ways he had never felt before.
Tenko sniffled, giving the raven haired man a wet smile. “You’re welcome, Sweet Pea, do you need anything else? Or want anything else?”
Tenko’s eyes raked over the cart, “I….I I need a blanket for Yagi” he whispered looking at Haruka and the man smiled and nodded.
“I’m sure, this store has an All Might Section” he teased and Tenko snorted.
“It would be fair he was the number 1 hero,” Tenko admitted biting his lip. He still felt guilty about that battle. That Nomu had done some serious damage.
Tenko watched from inside that Alpha command practically screaming that he didn’t want this, he never wanted to go around murdering anyone and everyone.
Yet he did.
“BlueBell, no guilt, okay. This is a good day, and Yagi and I want to spoil you and get some lunch.” Haruka smiled and Tenko bit his lip, nodding his head as they continued to wander.
For Yagi, Tenko finally settled on a velvet pillow that smelled like blueberry pie. It was so lovely and sweet, he was tempted to buy more scents, but he restrained himself.
On their way to the check out, Tenko froze as his eyes lingered on the plush section, his feet were moving before he could stop himself.
“Sweet Pea?” Haruka called after him as he followed the alpha paused when he looked over his shoulder and saw what Tenko was holding. “Do you want it?”
Tenko looked down at the pastel yellow butterfly plush with trembling hands. The eyes were a bright and shiny pastel pink, the wings were a white iridescent fabric, the antennas were gold iridescent fabric.
It smelled like honeysuckles and warmth.
Tenko shakily held the butterfly over his stomach in shock.
This had to be a sign right.
This had to mean something!
Tenko looked down toward the little bulge under his hoodie.
Tenko could smell Haruka behind him when he swallowed thickly. “I’m keeping the baby” he stared finality in his tone.
His hands clutched the butterfly plush for dear life.
“Eri is staying with me”
