Summary: Four months later, and it starts with a phone call and a slightly more-than-absurd request. Pairing: Taehyung | Reader Genre: Fluff; Post Breakup AU Word Count: 4,738
“You want me to do what?”
Taehyung visibly winces at your tone of voice, while not over accusatory or threatening or aggressive, is just enough to make him realize the ridiculous notion of his previous request. It had been slightly absurd even before he had decided to brave towards a phone call, but now that the words are out there, it’s even more absurd. He tries to picture you now: your eyebrows knitted together and your lips jutting out into that adorable pout that he use to trace out with his finger before pulling you in for a kiss, nips and bites and anything to make your pout turn into the smile that he loved so much.
He swallows thickly as soon as he hears you humming on the other side of the phone, enough to drag him out of his trance, enough to make the statement burn itself into the back of his head: the statement that you weren’t his girlfriend anymore and he couldn’t just kiss you because he wanted to.

Dick and Steph rent those animal cart things that the little kids drive around and start racing each other doing laps around the mall, Jason joins them later
Babs watches them race as she eats her cinnamon roll
Damian pushes Tim into the fountain
Steph rescues Tim from the fountain but as payment drags him into Sephora cause she’s already been in there and has run out of room on her arms to try stuff so she tests everything on him
Dick drags Damian into Build-a-Bear with him and gets him to make one Case somehow ends up in there as well and makes one too, they all dress them as their alter egos
Jason and Cass shop at Hot Topic together
Dick goes in the Disney Store and comes out with every single shirt that they have along with a ton of stuffed animals
Cass gets bamboozled into buying a bunch of makeup by a very aggressive kiosk worker
Eventually Tims arms are covered with makeup so Steph lets him go he leaves and goes to the coffee store and buys what would be a year’s supply for a normal person, but he’ll be back there in a month
Jason yells something offensive at Damian from the second floor as Damian is on the first floor and Damian sprints up the down escalator to attack him and Jason runs away to Barnes and Noble
Babs goes to Bath and Bodyworks and Dick goes with her cause he likes to smell pretty too
Jason buys a new book then sits on a bench and eats a cinnamon roll as he reads it
Tim argues with one of the tech kiosk workers
Damian catches Jason finally because he hasn’t forgotten what Jason yelled earlier and somehow manages to drag him to the fountain to shove him in, Jason has to abandon his book on the bench so that it doesn’t get ruined
They all get kicked out eventually even though they’re Bruce Wayne’s kids
Although being Bruce’s kids is probably the only reason the all don’t have lifetime bans from all the malls in Gotham
Steve is lost in the supermarket, talking to himself as he makes his way through the aisles. James thinks its adorable, and not so stealthily stalks him. And then Steve is in James’ house, brought by a mutual friend, carrying pie.
A tale of rediscovery, reinvention, and transformations. Of an author and an artist. Of train rides to the beach in winter and pie like Ma used to make. And of course, a tale of idiots in love.
