TUESDAY, 9:30 AM; SPORTS FESTIVAL STADIUM, U.A. HIGH SCHOOL

  Sulking around in a state of curiosity, he gazed down in silence despite the crowd's luminous cheers. Blending in, All Might paused as he passed by a set of business students.

  "That Y/N is amazing..."

  "I wonder why she's in the General Department."

  "But, she really must have a powerful quirk. She quite cute too, haha!"

  "Hmm, I wonder how would you guys advertise for her? I'm curious to hear what you guys think."

  The grand hero's eyes fell down to the girl as she wandered off, a purple-haired boy by her side. Y/N. She was definitely not quirkless. With no words, he hoped her powers held no ill root.

  All Might let out a short exhale. Just what was her secret?

TUESDAY, 9:34 AM; SOUTH EXIT, SPORTS FESTIVAL STADIUM

  Silence fell, the two of them tucked near the outskirts of the stadium. Secured in a quiet place, Shinsou stared at her dulled eyes. Brainwashed, she had easily followed him.

  "Tell me your real quirk." Straight to the point.

  "I don't have one."

  "..." He didn't drop his cool. He was surprised without a doubt, but there were still things he wanted to know. "Tell me your secrets." with a solemn, toned down voice, he inquired.

  "One time I ate a watermelon and-"

  "No, I meant about your power."

  "..." Time seemed to come to a slow; he could see each individual millisecond pass by. The answer behind it all was-

  "I trained for two years."

  A completely generic answer.

  "What? How did you train?" There had to be more.

  "One-hundred daily push-ups, sit-ups, squats, ten kilometers of running, and no using the air conditioning or heater for two years." There wasn't more.

  "..." Shinsou felt a weight coming on his shoulders. He pushed it to the side, shrugging as if to convince himself that he wasn't too interested. It all didn't make any sense, but perhaps there was something even his quirk couldn't reach.

  "..."

  "..."

  He swallowed sharply, a red hue venturing to his ears. A clashing hotpot of feelings. Questions ran about in his head. Measuring consequences, running out of time, his quirk only lasted for so long. He might as well use it while it lasted. His throat felt tight as he opened his lips.

  She wouldn't remember it, so it would be okay.

  "How... How do you feel about me?"

  "Hmm? Oh, I think you're pretty cool." She gave a friendly smile.

  "!!"

  His eyes drew spirals. That kind of response. She woke up. His eyes glued themselves to the floor, heat crawling all over him. The only thing chaotically sprinting around in his head was how much he had just regretted all of his life decisions. He wanted someone, anyone, to just end him now.

  "Y/N! Quick! Mineta told us we need to do some cheerleading stuff."

  Shinsou's ears perked at the sudden call.

  "Oh, uhm. Okay."
