Waving Through a WIndow

Work Text:

"Kurogiri?"

"Yes, Tenko?"

"Could you tell me a story?"

"Of course." Oboro walked with the young boy to his room and sat with him on his bed.

I've learned to slam on the brake
Before I even turn the key
Before I make the mistake
Before I lead with the worst of me

Oboro tells Tenko tales of his adventures with Shouta and Hizashi, watching the young boy as he listened intently. While the smoke around him now didn't allow him to show it, he was happy that the boy hadn't lost his humanity despite being around the Doctor and All for One.

Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say

Oboro told Teko about Shouta and Hizashi and how they were such great heroes. Eraserhead and Present Mic. They would do great things as heroes.

Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you've learned, because you've learned

"Kurogiri?"

"Yes, Tenko?"

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I'm waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear

"Why do you stay here and not flee back to your friends?"

So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
I'm waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

"Because they think me dead." Oboro's voice cracked as tears flowed down his physical face behind the smoke.

We start with stars in our eyes
We start believing that we belong
But every sun doesn't rise
And no one tells you where you went wrong

"And I have to make sure Sensei and the Doctor don't hurt you."

Step out, step out of the sun
If you keep getting burned
Step out, step out of the sun
Because you've learned, because you've learned

"Why don't we run away together?"

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving?

"Sensei and the Doctor must be defeated before we are able to."

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

It was almost 15 years later. 

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

Oboro and Tenko stood side by side, keeping up the act. 

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

Oboro pocketed the slip of paper he had written a note to Shouta and Hizashi. 

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?

He could only hope that they took it seriously.

Did I even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
It's like I never made a sound
Will I ever make a sound?

He hoped that they would save him and Tenko from All for One and the Doctor.

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?

"I finally get to meet Uncle Shouta?"

'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
Waving through a window

"Yes, Tenko. You finally get to meet your uncle."

I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
Waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

Oboro warps them to the USJ along with the other villains that All for One had gathered.

Is anybody waving?
Waving, waving... 

As they warped away, Oboro warped the note into Shouta's pocket.


'Dear Shouta and Hizashi,

Please save us. Tenko and I can't hold out much longer. Bring All Might. All for One is holding us.

- Oboro'
