"I think I'm falling in love with you" owo
Thanks for sending in a prompt anon!
“So—" Dick ran a tongue over his chapped lips and said.
“Hm?” Jason answered apathetically, was too busy concentrating on perfectly wrapping the bandages around Dick’s ankle. He’d gotten injured during patrol, jumped off too swiftly and slipped on the roof. Though he couldn’t blame him because it was raining but it was pretty amateur.
“Yeah?” Jason said, dismissing him a second time as he was putting on the finishing touches, knitting the bandages securely.
“I think I’m falling in love with you.”
And Jason almost dropped the scissors he had pinched between his fingers, ready to snip the edges of the bandage.
“What?” he prompted, lifted his head to settle his gaze on the man who was staring back at him intensely. Those vivid blue eyes glowed with fondness and his cheeks were flushed a bright pink.
“I said—" Dick murmured and huffed a breath. “I think I’m falling in love with you.”
Jason cocked a head to the side in curiosity. “Like right now?”
Dick sighed, exasperated that Jason couldn’t understand him.
“I meant—" he gestured a hand wildly, frustrated at Jason. He drew in a rickety breath and pinched the bridge of his nose. “I—okay—yeah. I have been and even more so now,” Dick explained.
Jason arched a brow at him, still confused and glanced away to have a moment to himself. The golden boy liked him. Loved him? How was that even possible? Jason was definitely not Dick’s type or someone he’d date. Yet here he was confessing to him. Was this for real?
He wasn’t so sure so he questioned him. “Cause I saved you tonight?”
Dick puffed up a cheek and pouted as he reached over and flicked Jason’s forehead. “No.”
“Is it so hard to believe that I like you? Maybe love you?”
“Yeah,” Jason nodded. “It is.”
Dick’s expression fell at that remark and a brief look of alarm filled his eyes. His attention fell to the ground as he chewed his lip in worry.
“Why?” he asked meekly, upset at what Jason had said but what could he do? It was true.
“Because you’re Dick Grayson. I can’t see any reason for you to like me,” Jason admitted and finally finished fixing Dick’s ankle up. He was about to move but the man held him back.
Dick gently cupped his cheek and pressed a thumb to his lower lip. “Look, I’m not all that. I’m not perfect, Jay. So don’t think I’m above you,” Dick explained and paused to gather his words once more as he breathed a heavy sigh. “I like you just as you are and honestly, you’re pretty great Jason Peter Todd.” His lips curled into a small smile, soft and tender and he pulled him forward, beckoned him to come closer.
Jason did, got up to settle on the edge of the mattress as Dick cupped both of his cheeks and leaned in for a kiss. It was chaste and sweet, and Jason could feel how hot his lips were.
Jason hummed quietly, pleased as they kissed over and over again, until their lips swelled, and were wet and glistening in their saliva.
Dick chuckled at the dazed look Jason gave him as they pulled apart and dipped in for one more kiss.
“You?” he finally asked, vivid blue eyes eager for an answer–for something.
The corner of Jason’s lips pulled into a smirk and he nodded, gently threaded a hand through Dick’s hair to tuck a lock behind his ear. “Me too.”
And the smile Dick had given him was so endearing, so beautiful and full of life, Jason couldn’t help but pull him into a tight embrace.
