Ishin Academy, April 7th
When Rikuo looked impressed by his quirk, Daiki couldn't help but chuckle sheepishly at their admiration. "W-would it?"
Daiki replied sheepishly. Daiki smiled as he patted his back. "When you put it like that..."
Daiki said thoughtfully, he really did never consider that fact. He would be a very useful rescue hero. That caused Daiki to smile internally to himself, maybe he isn't as worthless as he thought. His quirk has always been seen as a handicap but seeing it from an outsiders perspective it sounds-is useful. Maybe that's why he got in. And not luck like he thought.
Daiki carefully watched Rikuo as he showed off his quirk to him. At first he rolled up his sleeve and a purple splotch on his palm appeared and suddenly the purple splotches rose up from his hand and purple ink started to fly around his hand, Daiki looked at it with an impressed expression. It was so much more flashy than his own quirk. "Whoa!"
Daiki said with an oooh~ tone of voice. "That's so cool, I can only imagine what you can do with that!"
Daiki said excitedly as his tail wag in the air behind him as he patted Rikuo's arm repeatedly in a playful manner.
Daiki giggled at Rikuo's smirk and his response. "Oh?"
Daiki said in response to Rikuo calling him a friend of his. But Daiki wasn't expecting him to call him his first friend. Which took Daiki by shock, which showed on his face for a second before he started to beam with a bright smile. "Heh, getting my first friend was not what I expected from this conversation, but I'm happy that's it with quite the charmer!"
Daiki said excitedly. And when Rikuo said he'll visit the aquarium, Daiki had a cheeky smile on his face and said, "it's a date than!"
Daiki said lightly but happily.
When Daiki recounted his lie, Rikuo was quiet and didn't give any sympathy, which is what he wasn't expected. But instead they said it made sense why they want to be a hero and that his non-existent parents would be proud of him, especially after graduation. Daiki felt a tinge of guilt but swallowed it and simply nodded and said a small, "Thank you, I hope you're right."
But before the lie could develop even more off the handle a loud, cool "Silence" echoed in the room and Daiki swallowed his next set of lies and focused his eyes onto the stage of the Assembly. It was the Dean of the Academy, Yukimura hideaki. The Frozen hero. He looked so awesome!
Daiki listened intently and highly focused on the Dean's words intensely. But it wasn't as intense as the dean himself. But Daiki was getting pumped and excited by the Dean's passion and intensity, it was just perfect for a hero even though he retired. Daiki knew he was in good hands. He needed to be these amazing Heroes to be equals after all. He needs to work twice as harder than all of them combined! With the dean's final words Daiki repeated it to himself. "Soar Skyward...."
