Summary: Jason and his s/o at a carnival!
Requested by: @natasha-baggins
A/N: Thanks for requesting! I hope you enjoy~
Jason had never really been a fan of crowds, even when he was a kid. At galas he would always be found off in the corners, slipping outside, or even hiding under the tables for a moment of peace. Big groups of people were not fun for him. The noise, the bustle…it was just too much.
So why was he having so much fun tonight?
He’d told (Y/N) that they could do anything she wanted tonight. It was their one-year anniversary, and he’d been willing to do absolutely anything to make her happy. When she’d suggested the circus, though, he’d been a little skeptical. She’d acknowleged his hesitation, and seemed about to suggest something else, but then he’d insisted. He would push through it for a little while, to make her happy.
Watching her so happy, playing silly carnival games, riding simple rides, watching funny little shows, had made him happy as well. Much happier than he had imagined when she’d first suggested it.
Finally, hours after they’d arrived at the colorful little traveling carnival in the middle of Gotham, they sat on the ferris wheel together, huddled close against the evening chill.
She had a bag of cotton candy, and was leaning against his arm while she ate. He kept one eye on the world outside their little ride car, but savored her warmth against his side.
“Thank you for coming here with me, Jay.” She said after a few moments’ silence, when the car had risen enough to be above the general noise of the crowds. “I know crowds aren’t really your thing.”
“Yeah, well, you’re my thing, babe.”
She paused with a puff of pink candy halfway out of her mouth, and turned to look up at him, smiling, her (y/e/c) eyes reflecting the bright flashing lights of the carnival below them. “Aw,” she said around the fluff, “that’s so sweet, Jay.”
He smiled, leaned down slowly, and kissed her. The pink fluff dissolved rapidly between their lips, melting into sticky sugar that seemed desperate to keep them both together. When he finally pulled away, licking the leftover suger from his lips, her cheeks were almost as pink as the candy. “No, that was sweet.”
(Y/N) laughed, her blush deepening. She turned away for a moment, wiping her lips with one hand.
“Did you have fun tonight?” He asked, moving to rest his arm around her and hold her against his side.
“I always have fun with you, Jaybird. Thank you for this year, it’s been amazing.”
He smiled, resting his head on hers, and took a handful of cotton candy from her bag. “Best year of my life, (Y/N). I love you.”
