Christmas was just around the corner. And Y/n couldn’t be happier! Her and her roommate Barry had decided they would spend the holiday season together. Barry’s dad was still spending time in jail and Y/n’s family was in another country.
“Yeah but what if we call it Hanukkmas?” Y/n and Barry were discussing the name for their little get together. Barry being a Jew celebrated Hanukkah (Chanukah) and Y/n celebrated Christmas. They decided to mash the two together to make the ultimate holiday.
Barry laughed at his fiends suggestion. “Or we could just call it Christmas?” Y/n frowned. “No! You’re a Jew and I’d be a bitch of a friend not to include you in the best time of the year.” Barry smiled at his best friend. She was always so considerate.
Barry’s phone buzzed. He took it out of his pocket and looked at it. He frowned when he saw that it was from Bruce. Another mission. Barry sighed sadly. He wouldn’t make it back for Hanukkmas. Barry looked over at his friend. “What is it?” she asked sounding worried. “It’s the league,” he whispered. “There’s a mission. I don’t think I’ll make it in time for Hanukkmas,” Y/n smiled at the use of the silly name. “I’m sorry,” Barry sounded so sad. Y/n spent the whole month talking about what they would do. He could see the disappointment in her face. “It’s cool, you have to save the world, it’s your job.”
The League didn’t care much for holidays, like Barry they didn’t have much family. As the team was flying to the destination the team was getting ready. Barry pulled on his suit. He couldn’t help but feel sad. Diana noticed. “What’s wrong Barry? You look sad,” Barry looked over at the amazon. “It’s nothing.”
Bruce came in with his bat suit on, holding his mask in his hand. “Anything wrong?” he questioned. Barry shook his head. Diana and Bruce shared a look. Bruce glared at Diana, “Look Barry we need this mission done and then and only then will you be able to go back to your girlfriend.” Diana glared at Bruce. Diana walked out of the room hitting the bat’s shoulder with her own. “She’s not my girlfriend,” Barry said in a low voice. “What?” Barry repeated himself, “She’s not my girlfriend,” he glared at Bruce. “Whatever, just get this mission done and you’ll be free for the holidays.”
Barry stumbled into his apartment late on Christmas day. It was dark outside the only light in the apartment was coming from candles in the dining room. He entered the dining room and was met with his best friend half asleep surrounded by traditional Christmas and Hanukkah food. There was a Menorah in the middle of the table, though not all candles were lit.
Barry smiled at the sight. He pulled out a chair and sat down. Y/n had her head rested in her hands and was snoring lightly. Barry never felt happier. He began to took into the food that was prepared. He laughed at Y/n’s drooling. She woke up. “Hey,” she whispered sleepily. “How did it go?” Barry thought for a moment. “I- It went well,” Y/n smiled softly. “Barry you know you can tell me anything right?” Barry smiled and nodded. “You can too.”
Y/n took a deep breath. Barry looked up her. “I- uh…..” she paused, “Well I’m gonna tell you a secret that I’ve been keeping from you.” Barry nodded slowly. “I’m asexual,” Y/n said in a clear voice. Barry sighed happily. “Thank God! I thought you were going to tell me you were pregnant!” Y/n laughed. “I love you man,” they both got up and hugged.
“Thanks for the food by the way, it’s pretty good!” Y/n looked relieved. “yeah, I think I made a bit much though. When you were gone I googled a bunch of Jewish food and got carried away.”
There was a knock at the door. Y/n opened it to find Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman and Aquaman at her doorstep smiling in joy. “This was Diana’s idea,” Bruce said annoyed. He handed Y/n a bottle of wine and the rest of them entered the apartment. As they walked by the woman in shock they all greeted her and gave her a hug. She turned to Barry who was as shocked as she was, “Best Hanukkmas ever!”
