[Bff/N] - Best Friend Name [H/Bf/N] - Her Boyfriend’s Name
You were out this fine after noon with your best friend. It was just a simple lunch date you both scheduled. But the moment you saw her, your stomach turned.
She had a black eye and a bruise on her wrist like someone grabbed her there. You knew that bastard [H/Bf/N] was hitting her but she wouldn’t admit it. Jason often heard you ranting about the asshole.
You stood up and strode over to her. Taking her wrist gently in your hands and looked at the black eye. “Did that bastard do this?” you asked softly. She stayed silent, “[Bff/N] please tell me the truth” sitting down at the table as she sat across from you.
“H-he promised not to do it again.” She whispered. You let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding. “[Bff/N] he said that the last time too didn’t he?”
She just nodded. “Please you can’t stay there. You can stay with Jason and I until you get on your feet. But you can’t stay there” you pleaded in fear for your friend.
“No I couldn’t impede on you guys. I know you and Jason need your couple time.” she shook her head vigorously. You chuckled, “Trust me, we live together, we get plenty of couple time” a teasing tone in your voice.
“I can’t leave him.” She murmured, “Can we just not talk about this now?”
You sighed, “Fine, but we’re not done here”
You spent the rest of the lunch just talking about life and random events. She especially liked asking about you and Jason. She always found you guys to be a perfect couple, but you knew that she hasn’t seen you two butting heads.
It was a nice lunch until her phone rang.
“Hey [H/Bf/N]” she answered shyly
“Where the hell are you?!” you heard his yelling from where you were sitting.
“I’m just getting lunch”
“Well get home now you should’ve told me first”
He hung up the phone after that. You felt your blood boiling. That asshole had the nerve to call, yell at her, then hang up on her.
“I have to go” she spoke, her voice was fragile like it would shatter if she spoke any louder.
“I’m walking you home” you insisted. “N-no [F/n], I-its —”
“No arguments, I’m walking with you” standing up and picking up your jacket.
She gave in and the both of you payed before exiting the small cafe. You were going to give that piece of shit a piece of your mind.
She unlocked her door when you got to her apartment. Immediately upon opening the door he was storming toward her but stopped when he saw you.
“What the hell are you doing here?” he spat. “A pleasure as always asshat” you gave him a unamused grin.
“What’d you call me?” he stalked toward you. “I think you heard me just fine by the amount of smoke coming out of your ears” you mused.
“You bitch” his face was red with anger. You knew you were poking the bear here but you had to get a point across.
“Me a bitch? If you ask me only a cowardly bitch would hit his girlfriend. What was wrong this time, couldn’t get it up?” you stepped up and got in his face.
Before you could react he had risen his fist and connected it to your jaw. You stumbled back, hand gripping your jaw. [Bff/N] ran over to make sure you were alright. He brushed by the both of you, “I need a drink” and out the door.
“Are you alright [F/n]?” she asked concerned.
“Yeah. Yeah I’m fine” you stood up feeling a bit of blood on your jaw. ‘Shit Jason will kill him’ you thought.
You went into her bathroom and cleaned up the blood. She brought you a bandaid and first aid kit. After taking care of the injury, she spoke up.
“I think that you should go, he will only be angrier if you’re here when he gets back.” she instructed. You nodded before heading to the door.
The walk home your jaw hurt like hell and you had to think of a way so that Jason wouldn’t up and shoot the bastard. Long story short you walked slow to gain more time.
Putting your key in the door, before pushing it open you took a deep breath. Mentally preparing yourself for the bombardment of questions you were just about to receive.
Pushing it open you walked inside. Hanging up your coat and setting your bag on the table next to the door. Making your way to the bathroom.
Looking in the mirror you examined the forming bruise. Peeling off the bandaid and cleaning it up with rag.
“I thought I heard you come home” hearing a familiar voice. You looked at Jason and his grin dropped.
He strode over lifting your chin up with his finger, “What happened?” concern was laced in his voice, as his expression mirrored it.
“It’s nothing, just got mugged” you shrugged before turning back to the mirror.
“Mugged, during the day. You and I both know that’s not what happened.” He crossed his arms. Why did he have to be so damn intuitive?
“Come on cough it up.” He waved to you.
You sighed knowing lying would be no use. “It was [H/Bf/N]. I stood up to him and he slugged me” keeping your eyes from his.
“The son of a bitch did what?” He growled. His eyes darkened and his demeanor changed to vigilante rather than boyfriend.
“Jason please don’t, you know, murder him” you followed as he walked out of the bathroom. You knew where he was going, straight to his gun safe.
“Jason” you stopped him as he turned around. He looked at you, he was pissed off.
“I’m not going to let the bastard get away with it”
“I know and we shouldn’t but I think the police might be the best way to go on this one. Maybe we can make it so she won’t lose the apartment or anything. I have a friend in the police force, let me reach out” you persuaded, slowly removing the firearm from his grasp.
His tense body relaxed. Setting the gun back into the safe and turning back to face him.
He examined your face, gently brushing his thumb over the bruise. Then leaned and rested his forehead to yours. “You know I’d never hit you like that right? I know I have a temper but I’d never take it out on you”
“I know Jay. I know” brushing your nose against his.
You and Jason headed over to see [Bff/N] to try and convince her to talk to the police. She had told you he was out so the both of you left that minute. It didn’t take long to get there.
“Hey, how are you feeling?“ you questioned as the both of you walked into her apartment.
“I’m fine, what’re you guys doing here? Is something the matter?”
“Yeah, something is. We’re not letting you live like this anymore. I’m begging you, will you please talk to a police officer. I’ve reached out and a friend of mine is more than willing to talk with you” you begged as she began to think.
Though you all heard the door open, “I’m back.” You flinched slightly at the voice. Jason wrapped your hand in his when he noticed your flinch.
“Who the hell are you?” he questioned upon seeing Jason.
“I’m [F/n]’s boyfriend” Jason answered simply. He laughed, “Sorry for you man”
“Excuse me?” Jason stepped toward him. You kept a grip on his hand, keeping him from getting too far.
“She’s got a mouth on her that one, but I bet you keep it busy with other things huh?” He chuckled.
Okay, yeah… he’s a dead man.
Letting go of your hand he punched [H/Bf/N] right to the jaw” He fell to the floor within the instant.
“Agh, shit” he groaned, getting to his hands. When he stood up Jason pinned him to the wall, “Don’t ever tough her again. You do and you’ll be leaving in a body bag”
The two did not know how serious he actually was. You put a hand on his shoulder, “Bastards not worth it Jay”
At that he let him go before punching him again, knocking him out. “[Bff/N] how about you go grab somethings, you’re welcome to stay with [F/n] and I for awhile. Until you’ll be safe from this douche.”
She nodded and quickly ran into her bedroom. Grabbing some clothes and necessities.
Turning to him, you wrapped your arms around his waist and laid your head on his chest. “That was hot”
You felt his chuckle vibrate in his chest, leading to a smile to grow on your features. “I’m always hot” he teased, making you punch his arm lightly.
You ended up taking [Bff/n] back to your place and convinced her to talk to the police. [H/Bf/N] was soon arrested and received a guilty verdict for assault.
She moved back into her old apartment, you and Jason gave her a hand with getting rid of [H/Bf/N]’s things. She thanked you for everything before you returned home.
Both collapsing on the couch you nestled into him. “Who would’ve thought, Jason Todd’s a hero during the day and night”
He chuckled, “I think you deserve the credit for helping her”
“Yeah but you knocked him out”
He smiled down at you. Before softly kissing your forehead, eliciting giggles from you.
“You’ll always be my hero though” saying it into his chest. Muffled by his shirt.
A smile grew on his face has he wrapped his arms around you tighter. How could anyone ever say they love someone and end up hitting them? He would never dream of hitting you. He just loves you too much.
