You tapped your foot impatiently as you cast your (E/C) eyes to the door once more.
You and Jason had agreed to talk things through that evening and to be honest, you were terrified. It was only a few hours ago that you had realized your feelings for the vigilante, albeit begrudgingly. Thanks to the support of Roy, you had finally worked up the courage to contact your soulmate. The conversation had gone about as well as you’d expected, what with his sarcastic remarks and sharp tongue. If not for his brothers’ interference, you’d have probably hung up on Jason and forgotten about the whole thing.
Without thinking, you sipped your glass of sweet tea.
“I still don’t see the appeal of sweet tea.”
You choked on your drink. Turning, you glared at the man behind you. Jason’s blue eyes glimmered with amusement at your reaction. You felt your glare soften at the sight of him. It wasn’t too obvious, but you could tell that the dark-haired man was just as nervous as you.
You gestured for Jason to take the seat across from you.
“So, uh…” Jason trailed off as he situated himself in his seat. He coughed awkwardly and looked anywhere but in your eyes. “What exactly did you want to discuss?”
“I’m pretty sure you know already.”
“You want to discuss this soulmate thing.”
“Yeah, that thing.”
The two of you fell silent, an awkward air between you. You nervously pushed some of your (H/C) hair behind your ear. Jason shifted uncomfortably in his seat once more. You two glanced at each other then quickly looked away.
This was getting you no where.
“Right!” You squeaked, a little too loudly. You noticed Jason winced at your tone. You cleared your throat before continuing. “Us. Well, we are soulmates, so we need to figure out this…whatever this is.”
The vigilante nodded. “We need to decide if we want to try and be a…couple.”
A bright blush flooded across your cheeks at that word.
You would be lying if you said you hadn’t thought of you two as a couple. After realizing your feelings, you had spent the past few hours thinking over the different scenarios of how this evening would end. You two could decide to not pursue a romantic relationship. There were cases of soulmates who were simply close friends and never had any feelings other than platonic love for one another. You two could decide to ignore each other and forget everything that had happened. Some soulmates liked to live in denial for the rest of their lives. You two could decide to try and see how a romantic relationship would go for you two.
You just had to ask what Jason thought on the matter.
“W-What do you think of us as a couple?”
Jason pondered your question. He cast his blue eyes to the side as he thought through his response. The vigilante turned his burning gaze back to you. Your heart fluttered at the intense gaze he was giving you.
“I want to give us a chance.” He whispered, almost scared of saying these words aloud. “I want this to work, but I don’t want to do this if you aren’t going to give me a chance. I’m more than the man you think I am. I know you hate me-!”
You chuckled softly. “That’s the thing, I don’t hate you. I don’t think I’ve ever actually hated you.”
You two stared at each other before bursting into laughter. You liked the way Jason’s face looked when he laughed. He looked…younger. More carefree. Less like a man that had seen the worst of the world and more like the man who had just found the one person he was meant to be with.
That’s when you knew for sure that you loved this annoying, gorgeous skunk head.
The two of you talked for several more hours, discussing exactly what each of you wanted out of the relationship. You knew about his “nightly” activities, so you both knew that there were going to be missed dates, forgotten anniversaries, and other things to come. You’d both seen what superhero life could do to a relationship, but you weren’t afraid. You were more than willing to work through these problems as they arise.
The staff had to kick you out of the restaurant so they could close for the night. Your hand was clasped gently in Jason’s as you two walked to your apartment. The conversation jumped from topic to topic, just the two of you enjoying the sound of each other’s voice.
“Thanks for walking me home.” You smiled shyly at your soulmate. “You didn’t have to, but I appreciate it.”
Jason gave you a crooked grin. “Of course I did. Gotham isn’t exactly a safe place for anybody.”
“So, when can I see you again?”
“Soon, I hope.” He replied. Jason squeezed your hand comfortingly. “I can’t make any promises though. You know how unpredictable hero life is.”
“I know, but that doesn’t matter. Whatever happens, we’ll figure it out together.”
“Together…I like the sound of that.”
Jason glanced down at your lips. You felt yourself blush again as he leaned down closer to your face. Your heartbeat increased as his lips inched closer and closer to yours. Just as his lips were about to make contact with yours, his phone began to ring.
“God damn it!” He growled, thoroughly pissed. Jason pulled away and dug in his jacket pocket to fish out the device. “This better be good Dick, or so help me Kori will have to find a new soulmate!”
You giggled softly at his words. Jason sent you a quick wink before focusing in on what his brother was saying. His playful expression soon morphed into a serious one. He mumbled his acknowledgement to Dick’s words. Hanging up the phone, he slid it back into his pocket and dragged a hand down his face. You smiled ruefully at him.
“And just as things were about to get good!” Jason laughed at the punch you gave his arm. He gave you a bashful smile. “I’m sorry (Y/N). I’d love to spend more time with you, but…”
“You don’t have to explain yourself to me. I understand. Just…don’t do anything stupid.”
“I can’t make any promises, but I’ll try.” Jason leaned in and placed a soft kiss to your cheek. “I’ll talk to you soon.”
You smiled back at him. “Go get ‘em skunk head.”
“Stay safe hill billy.”
