The first time they said “I love you” to each other.
Darkseid had let his parademons infiltrate countries all over the world. The league were all assigned to different areas as well as members of the Secret Society helping out.
Batman stood in the monitor bay, ordering leaguers where to place themselves and strategize their attacks. Superman had left along with Lex Luthor to take down Darkseid firsthand.
"Arrow, take on the lower side and let Supergirl handle the aerial attacks," he commaned to Green Arrow through the comm. link. He clenched his jaw shut. He wanted to head down to battle, but he needed to see everything to check if his plan was working.
"Batman," Mr. T jumped out of his seat and approached him in quick strides, "Nightwing needs more reinforcements at Gotham." Batman narrowed his eyes, assessing a few plans in his head.
"I’ll go," Diana’s voice resonated from the elevators, making them look at her direction. Batman met her strong gaze and she was determined to head down. "Diana, you just recovered from your last encounter with Granny Goodness and the Furies. You need rest."
"I’n ready, Batman," she replied stoically. She could be as stubborn as he was and Bruce knew it. It was something they both had in common. "Batman, Nightwing needs confirmation, ASAP." Batman held up his finger, silencing Mr. T, "Tell him to wait for a moment."
He walked towards Diana like a predator would if it came across its prey. He stopped a few inches from her, “When I became stubborn, you pushed me to stay and rest. I did that, Princess, but right now, I want you to listen to me. Head back to the infirmary and rest.”
Diana remained staring at him, her red lips pursed in a thin line. Batman gave her the glare, “I mean it, Princess. We can handle this.” With a stoic look on her face, she spoke, “No.” Batman sighed, pushing closer to her until their noses brushed, “Stop being stubborn right now, Princess. I need you safe and out of harm’s way.”
He lifted his hand and cupped her face, brushing his thumb against her cheeks and silently cursed at the kevlar that barred him from feeling her soft skin. He knew now was not the right time to tell her, but he had to, if it meant getting her attention.
"I love you, Princess. I want you here where I know you won’t get hurt again." Diana’s eyes soften and grabbed the back of his head, pulling him close to her until her lips crashed with his. Her lips felt heavenly and it was all that mattered to him. It was the first time he ever told her that and he would tell her that for the rest of his life.
"And I love you, Dark Knight," she replied the moment she pulled away, catching her breath. For the first time in her life, it felt like paradise to hear him utter those three beautiful words she had longed for a long time.
How’s this, thedorkknightascendent? I hope you like it. :D
