his breathing was soft while he slept. even still, his youthful feet would twitch with delight at the dreams that played out within his mind. it was surprising for one who had never seen anything. his mind had created a world of wonder for the young boy to venture through. it was filled to the brim with gardens that boasted giant flowers, creatures that could only come from a newbornโ€™s mind who roamed this world, and then all that existed beyond. in dreams, deku was happier than he had ever been.
ย 
when sleep faded from him, the small figure seemed to wiggle his way two inches from his motherโ€™s warmth. the instant chill that he felt was astounding. he shuddered against it and released a quiet squeak that would have echoed if his ears were capable of picking up on sounds. everything was dark and quiet in that existence. everything was so different from the world inside his mind.

I have to lmao

She had managed to fall asleep, her body alert to everything in a whole new way. She felt every twitch of Deku's tiny bean paws, she felt every breath of her son. Perhaps this was why mothers were so exhausted all the time, they never fully slept. When Deku crawled away she woke up and turned her head watching him take his very first explorative steps. He squeaked his disapproval and she chuckled, giving him a reassuring bump of her nose. She did not yank him back, no she would let him experience being away from her side for a few moments more before she gently picked him up and placed him between her paws "The world is a big place my little explorer" she cooed and licked at his ears "You'll see it all someday. I'll show you beautiful places, your father will show you too" she knew he couldn't understand but she wanted him to feel her voice, to bond to her so when he could understand he would listen. She smiled then and lowered her whole face, booping his nose with hers "You are the cutest thing, a tiny ball of fur, a wriggling baby of adorable potential" and then she babbled, her voice a mixture of cooing and sing songy playfulness.

deku was fortunate to know such love and devotion from his mother. though she did not restrict his limited attempt at exploration, she encouraged the idea that he would witness some extraordinary things when that time came. of course, to the pale boy, he could hear nothing that she offered him. when minori scooped him up and placed him between her paws, young deku released a surprised cry that seemed to carry a hint of delight within it. you see, the boy knew that he was safe beside her. he knew that this was someone who would tend to him no matter what he might do. he was fortunate to know her.

the dark-tipped child bobbed his head before worming his way along her forelimbs and finding a cozy position at her chest. it was here that he sighed quietly, breathing in the muddled scents of her coat and the den. in time, his sense of smell would grow stronger, but in that moment she was all that there was for him to know. deku buried his nose into the thick fur at her chest.

Every sound he made became her new favorite, her ears straining to catch even the faintest of sighs. Her eyes moistened as he wriggled his way to snuggle into her chest and she gently dropped her chin to embrace him. A single tear dripped free and she licked it off his soft downy baby fur "Never stray from me, baby of mine" she hummed, her eyes closing as an earth shattering wave of devotion surged through her. Only a day and she would go to the ends of the Earth for him.

the comfort of his position could not have been described by one so young. it was evident that he did not understand the world had equal parts terrible and beautiful that existed within it. time would share these things with the young deku. it would not be until he was much older that he would witness what the wilds really had to offer him.
ย 
when she spoke, he could feel her voice as it vibrated through her chest. it was both peculiar and delightful as a sensation. deku lifted his weak head upward and peeped a tiny noise. it would have been easy to say that there was happiness in his features. the sweet blind child had felt his motherโ€™s voice long before he had heard it, and that was magic in itself.

He peeped like a baby bird in response to her tears and she laughed, the sound causing a burst of air to part his fur. She quickly brushed it back into place with her maw and sighed softly "You're right. Let's just be happy and content with one another's presence" of course for all she knew he could have squeaked that he wanted her to groom him to sleep or something of that sort but for now she was content to fill in any blanks. She rest her muzzle on her forepaws, chin angled so that she held him securely against her chest while she closed her eyes. She would rest now....


But the feeling of her happy baby boy awake and close kept her awake. She opened her eyes again and smiled, feeling mischievous. Gently she moved him away and with a firm nudge she rolled him to his back. She gazed down at her blind child and then buried her maw in his belly, blowing and nibbling on the tender spot "I'm gonna eat you all up! I can't help it, you're just so cute!" she gushed, quickly glancing around to make sure nobody was spying on her moment of silly goofy mush.

the young boy was moved rather swiftly from his comfort cushion. he squeaked in protest, kicking his arms and legs vigorously as he was moved away from the warmth that his mother provided for him. this was not pleasing to the pale young creature. his mouth opened pitifully and cried in high-pitched, desperate pleas to be put back where he had been before. it did not take long before his world was uprooted once more. without word of warning or a second breath, deku was rolled onto his backside.
ย 
there was a moment of comical error where the newborn seemed to believe that he could still right himself. his limbs did not cease to circle. it looked almost as though he was attempting to swim in his upside-down state. when his mother leaned in to tease at his stomach, deku squalled loudly and wobbled back and forth like a turned turtle. it would have been hard to tell if the noise was joyful or terrified โ€“ even for him.

It took a few moments for it to sink in that she had done something wrong. She blinked dumbly as the terrified squeals of her baby sank in and she quickly rolled him back over and tucked him closer to her chest "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, Mommy's sorry Megumi" she whispered frantically as she licked at his fur in what she prayed was a soothing way. Hoping to fix how upset he was she began to sing a Japanese lullaby in a soft crooning tone.

it seemed that the young man was quick to spook when he did not know what was happening. when the vibrations of his mother's voice sounded around him, deku calmed himself and breathed deeply against the faded scent of her. she had done well to quell his struggling and fear. in that moment, he did not even remember that she had scared him. he was too involved in the fact that he was safe in her arms โ€“ that she would protect him from all terrible things that the world had to offer. all was good for the young megumi.

The panic that had surged and caused her heart to race rapidly slowly came to a stop as he stopped crying and nestled into her fur again. She would not do that to him again, she could tell now that he was soft and would need protection rather than encouragement to grow stronger and become a fighter like she had. It was something that scared her, to know that he was so easily scared in a world full of pain. She shoved the thoughts away and instead licked his fur and tucked him to her teats, where he could nurse if he wanted as her tail curled over him to keep him warm.

can we have an updated one??? since he can see now and poke around better!!! :D

the young boy did not hunger, but he did find safety in the warmth of his mother's touch. she brought him closer to her frame. deku pressed his small nose against her plush coat, breathing in the faded scent of her. all of it was so overwhelming to the child, but he was resilient in spite of his fears. while the world might have been filled to the brim with things that could end his life, little megumi was prepared to face them all. there were great stories in overcoming the odds, after all. one day, he would be the hero in those tales and they would be told around the world. until then, deku pressed himself tightly against minori and breathed a quiet sigh of relief.
