Stop the Flirting - Wally West x Reader
Requested by Anon - a wally west story, one where the reader is dating him, but when they have to pretend to be ordinary people for a mission he sorta goes back to his old flirtatious habits and the reader gets really pissed and fluff
You were going to kill him.
Batman assigned the team to a mission to prevent a possible kidnapping of a senator’s son. You and Wally were given the task to follow the kid as he shopped in a local shopping mall. Dressed as ordinary people, you and Wally did your best to blend in.
Distancing yourself from each other, you were enraged to find Wally flirting with people right and left. You sat in a booth at the food court a few feet from the senator’s son while Wally wandered about the food court, eating in an attempt to blend. However, it wasn’t working since Wally’s eating habits were abnormal at best.
You growled when you saw Wally winking at the girl behind one of the food counters. The girl giggled, blushing red while Wally grinned cheekily at her. Your rage boiled in your heart as the flirting continued. Everything in you wanted to go give him a piece of your mind for daring to flirt with another person when you were dating, but the mission had to come first.
It wasn’t until the senator’s son went into the arcade that Wally approached you for the first time since the start of the mission.
“Hey Babe, how’s it going?” Wally cooed, sinking onto the bench next to you with a basket of french fries. He offered it to you, but you shook your head sharply.
“Fine,” you snapped, keeping your gaze on the senator’s son as he played a racing game. Wally frowned at you, confused by your coolness.
“Are you okay, Babe?” he asked carefully, scooting closer to you. You moved away from him, sending him a glare.
“Go away, Wally,” you growled, hating the guilt that sparked inside of you at the hurt look on his face. You were not the bad guy, he was the wrong here.
He was about to speak again, but he was interrupted when the girl from the food court approached the two of you rapidly. “Hey,” she whispered, blushing when Wally noticed her. A charming grin appeared on Wally’s face, making you want to kill him again.
“Hey, Beautiful,” Wally flirted as if you didn’t exist. “Did you miss me already?” He winked at her. The girl blushed even redder before giggling at him.
“I noticed you didn’t take any napkins, so I brought you some,” she replied, handing him a handful of napkins. Wally took them, his smile brightening even more than before.
“Thanks Babe,” Wally responded as the girl blushed again. You rolled your eyes, biting your lip in an attempt to stay in control. Your hand twitched, wanting to punch the girl and Wally in the face.
“Bye, Wally,” the girl giggled before running off. Wally looked down at the napkins. His eyes widened in surprise when he saw the girl’s name and number written on the top napkin.
Wally looked up at you, laughing at the sight. “She’s gave me her number.” Your blood boiled as you glared at the number on the napkin. Wally picked up the napkin, but you snatched it out of his hands. “Hey…”
“Shut up,” you snapped, ripping the napkin to pieces before tossing it into the trashcan. You returned your gaze back to Wally, who just realized what was bothering you. “You are such a jerk, you know that.”
“Babe…” Wally began before he was interrupted by a scream coming from the senator’s son. You and Wally jumped into action as several masked men tried to carry the boy out of the building. Wally sped over to snatch the senator’s son out of the kidnapper’s hands while you attacked them.
Jumping at two of them, you quickly subdued them. Due to your anger and frustration with Wally, you found yourself being quite brutal with them. Another masked man came up behind you as you finished off the other two, grabbing you from behind. You broke his hold quickly before spinning around to kick him in the groin. It felt good, mostly because Wally saw the kick. He whimpered in response, sensing the kick was stronger simply due to your anger towards him.
All too soon, the men were down. They groaned and cried from pain as the senator’s son was officially saved. He came over to shake your hand, and thank you before he was taken off by his official security team. You got a little satisfaction when the senator’s son ignored Wally completely.
Wally was still recovering from being ignored as you turned to head towards the nearest zeta tube. You were a good distance away before a gust of wind rustled your hair.
“Babe, are you still mad at me?” Wally asked, appearing at your side. You shook your head at him, brushing past him.
“Just leave me alone, Wally,” you growled, knowing you couldn’t control your actions at the moment. Unfortunately, Wally didn’t seem to take your hint.
“(Y/N), I’m sorry,” he continued, jogging to keep up with you. You frowned deeply, your eyes burning with tears. The rage that boiled your blood was only a cover for pain in your heart. You felt betrayed.
“I can’t talk right now,” you gasped, hating how a tear slipped down your cheek. You ducked your head down to hide it, but Wally noticed anyway.
“Oh, Babe. Please don’t cry. I’m sorry,” Wally soothed, taking your arm to make you face him. You kept your head down, brushing away the tear with your sleeve. “I shouldn’t have flirted with that girl. I was just thinking I needed to blend in, and I fell into my old ways, but it was nothing.”
You turned away from him only for him to pop up front of you. He brushed away your tears with his thumb, looking into your eyes.
“I love you, (Y/N). The minute we started dating, I haven’t look at anyone else. I don’t want anyone, but you. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you,” Wally explained, cradling your head in his hands. You shook your head at him, finding your anger slipping away.
“You’re a idiot,” you mumbled as Wally pulled you into a gentle hug.
“I know,” he answered, resting his chin on your shoulder as you buried your face in his. He held you for a long moment before pulling away. “Do you want to get out of here?”
You nodded in response. Wally smiled, wrapping an arm around your waist as he guided you both towards the hidden zeta tube in the area. You leaned your head on his shoulder, happy with the knowledge that Wally only had eyes for you.
“You know,” Wally began, smirking at you playfully. “I’m kind of flattered you were jealous over me.”
“Don’t let it go to your head, Mr. West,” you warned, laughing despite your past feelings. You and Wally entered the zeta tube, side by side, content with the position of your relationship.
