“That’s not how you negotiate !” - Bruce Wayne x Reader
OH YES !! Haha that particular “batmom” will be me if I ever get married. Fuck the dentist ! Anyway, here it is for you @cupcakequeen1999 (warning for language by the way) and hope you’ll like it, really hope you will :
-I swear to everything holy in this World, if you touch me, I…I…I don’t know yet what I’ll do, but I won’t hesitate to do it !
Bruce sighs and rolls his eyes. He took a quick look at his watch, and sighs some more. You two had been arguing now for the past hour. You were cuddled under a blanket on the couch, pretty adamant on the fact that you would not move, and he was standing in front of you, arms crossed and an exasperated look on his face…
It started at breakfast a week ago, when your husband noticed you only ate your food on one side of your mouth, and winced whenever you forgot and automatically switched side.
He simply asked, and you looked at him almost panicked before regaining your composure.
-What ? Cavity ? No, no cavities in my mouth. You should know, you’re often in it…In more than one way.
You wink at him and he smiles fondly at you. Damn you and your antics…
-Yeah well I thought I felt something with my tongue this morn…
-OH EW WHAT THE HELL PARENTS ? KEEP THE PILLOW TALK IN THE BEDROOM !!

the day. The awarding of the Emmys. You had been so excited for your boyfriend
who was nominated for the best dramatic actor. Rami was nervous the whole day,
doubting that he would ever win. You tried to cheer him up and told him that no
matter what would happen today, if he’d win or not, he would always be the best
actor in your eyes. At least, his mood changed a bit and he became calmer. “Thank
you.” he said as you helped him getting into his expensive Dior suit.
you could be there, too.” He murmured. You smiled at him while fixing his bow
tie. “I’m fine Rami.” You assured him. “And you know how much Mary wanted to come.
She was practically begging for it.” His mouth curved into a smile as he
remembered the day his cousin almost went down on her knees and asked for
permission. “I’ll be with your parents and Sami, babe.” You said. You would
meet his family to watch the Emmys on television together. Then, someone
knocked at the door and Rami’s manager told that it was time to leave. You hugged
each other tightly before he stepped out of your apartment. “Good luck babe! I
love you!” You called after him.
later, his parents and brother arrived. You noticed that they were also nervous
and very excited for Rami. You prepared some snacks and Sami came into the
kitchen. “Excited?” He asked you. “Totally! What about you?” He nodded his
head. “Same here, girl.” After a little
small talk, you joined his parents in the living room and right then, the Emmys
in the living room was tensed. Your whole body shook and you fiddled with your
fingers as the nomination for best dramatic actor was the next. “Please, say
Rami, say it.” You whispered and hoped your boyfriend’s name would be
mentioned. Rami’s face appeared on the screen. He looked hopeless. You knew
exactly what he thought right now. He definitely thought that he would never
win this emmy.
Then it was
time. And the winner was… RAMI MALEK! You screamed in joy as his name was announced.
You knew it! And Rami’s face was so priceless. His expression elicited a laugh
from your lips. Also his parents and brother cheered and applauded happily. You
could see the pride in their eyes.
on the stage, his shocked expression was still on his face. He received his emmy
and stared at it a while, before he began his speech. “Please tell me you’re
seeing this too.” He said unbelievingly, making you and his mother laugh, while
a grin curled up on Sami’s lips. The next few minutes, Rami thanked to everyone
who helped him getting this award. In your opinion, this was the best speech
that he ever had. “I want to honor the Elliots. There is a little bit Elliot in
all of us.” He concluded before he finished his fabulous speech. Everyone in
the audition clapped their hands and Rami went down the stage.
proud of him.” You said already the tenth time this day. His parents and Sami
were about to leave. You gave his mother a loving hug. “Me too, sweetheart, me
too. We all are so proud of him.” They stepped out of the apartment, but Sami
turned back. A smug smile was plastered on his lips. “Oh, by the way! Have fun tonight.”
Then he turned around and left, leaving you back with red cheeks on your face.
the door and began to clean up the living room. Of course, you decided to congratulate
your boyfriend in a special way, but the fact that his brother exactly knew
this, was embarrassing enough. Hopefully, he wouldn’t tease Rami about it.
After everything was cleaned, you went to your living room. Then you moved to
your wardrobe and searched for the best lingerie you owned. Taking them, you
changed your clothes and after putting the laced black bra and panties on, you
also got into your night gown. Spraying his favorite perfume on your neck and
on your wrist, you brushed your teeth and combed through your hair. You lighted
some candles and spread some rose petals on the ground to create a romantic atmosphere.
Now all you had to do was waiting for Rami. Your winner!
the front door being unlocked and the low and raspy voice of your boyfriend
calling for you. Your heart skipped a beat and you exhaled nervously, trying to
calm down. With tiny steps, you went to the hallway to greet your boyfriend,
who was taking off his jacket. His eyes widened as he saw you standing in front
of him, half naked and with a see-through gown.
babe.” You murmured. Rami came closer to, holding his award in his hand. “Thank
you, love.” He said and wrapped his arms around your waist, pulling you closer
to his body. “I’m proud of you, Rami.” You smiled as you had a look at this
huge, golden object in his hands. “I told you, you would win, didn’t I?” You
teased him. “Indeed. I’ve never expected this to happen.” His eyes went down
body, reflecting a hint of burning desire. “So…Uhm… what is this all about?” He
the award out of his hand and lead him to the bedroom, where you carefully laid
the object on the cupboard. Rami whistled as he saw the view in front of him.
Candles were burning everywhere and there was a scent of vanilla in the air. “I
thought we could celebrate your win in a special way.” You moved closer to him.
would be?” His eyebrows rose and he smirked at you, already knowing the answer.
“I’ll be all yours tonight.” You whispered seductively in his ear. As you
pulled back, you saw his eyes burning with lust. He drew his lower lip between
his teeth and observed you from your head to your toes. “Like what you see?”
You asked him playfully. He nodded his head. “Absolutely.”
And in the
next second you smashed your lips together, kissing each other with hunger and
passion. He brushed your night gown off your shoulders until they fell down to
your feet. The sudden contact with air made goose bumps rise up your skin. Rami
pushed his tongue into your mouth and you both fought for dominance.
You led him
to your bed and carefully pushed him down, climbing onto his lap. Still kissing
him, you slowly unbuttoned his shirt to reveal his well-toned and muscular torso
and took off his tie. You let go of his lips and started sucking on his neck. “God,
woman!” Rami moaned delicately. “What are you doing to me?” You continued licking
and biting on his soft skin until there was nothing left but a big, red mark. “Relax,
babe.” You panted. “Let me take care of you.”
his opened shirt down his shoulders. You kissed him once more, never getting
enough of his plump lips. If there was anything you loved about him except for
his beautiful green eyes, then it was definitely his lips. They were always so
soft and kissable. Your hands trailed down his stomach to his dress pants where
you unbuckled his belt, sliding them down his ankles. You could see the outline
of his erection through his boxers. You started to rub him through his boxers,
making him rolling his eyes in pleasure. “Holy shit! (Y/N)!” He moaned.
babe. Tell me what you want.” You offered to him. But he was too much occupied
with dealing the pleasure you gave him. “Something but you makes me feel like a
dangerous woman.” You sang into his ear. Suddenly he covered his eyes with his
elbow, bursting into laughter. You joined him. In some moments it felt good to
tease each other and laugh before you went for more. “Sorry!” He laughed. “Don’t
worry, Rami.” You assured him.
“I want you
to ride me.” He answered then. “I guess we haven’t done it such a long time.”
You nodded and got down his lap. “I need condoms, babe.” He pointed to his
cupboard. “Have a look there.” You did as he said, taking out a condom and went
back to him. Meanwhile he already took of his boxers, and his member was
revealed to you. You blushed a little bit at this view but at the same you
couldn’t wait to feel him inside you. “Come here, (Y/N).” He said softly. You
gave him the condom and together you rolled him over his erection. He placed
you on his lap again, started to kiss your neck. You nibbled on your bottom lip
as he unclasped your bra and slid them off your shoulders. Carefully, he squeezed
your fully breasts, taking your nipples in his mouth.
sighed satisfied and he continued pleasuring you with his amazing mouth. After
pulling your panties down, you stared amorously into each other’s eyes. He
pecked your lips, saying “I love you, (Y/N).” “I love you too, Rami.” You said. “So much.”
eased yourself onto his member, feeling him stretching your walls, filling you
completely. Body’s pressed against each other and your souls united, you began
to move. It had been a while since you had sex together and it felt good to
feel him again. To be so close to him. Rami’s hands trailed up your belly to
your breast where lingered. You closed your eyes, moaning and panting. Like
always he found the spot you were craving for with no difficulty, making you
screaming his name. You put your hand over your mouth to muffle your moans and
not to disturb your neighbors, but the pleasure was so intense, you didn’t
your nails into his back, you buried your face in the crook of his neck. Not
for long and your body would explode. You quickened your pace and moved faster.
Rami supported you while he was thrusting harder and deeper. “O-oh…R-Rami.”
started massaging your clit and soon you felt something built up in your
stomach. “I-I’m close baby.” You groaned. “So close.” He put more pressure
until your orgasm approached.
(Y/N). Let go baby.” His deep and raspy voice was all you needed to come
undone. “Rami!” You screamed his name, arching your back and curling your toes.
Rami needed a few more thrusts and finally found relief himself.
were covered with sweat and you breathed heavily, but nevertheless you were
happy. Rami was so kind, he covered your face with his kisses, making you
giggle. He turned you over so you laid beneath him. Pulling out of you
carefully and stripping off the condom, putting it in the trash can, he blew
out the candles around you. Then he slipped under the blanket. You didn’t mind
being sweaty right now. You were too much exhausted and wanted to sleep in Rami’s
both peacefully drifted to sleep, you mumbled, “My winner, my champion. My man.”
No matter what happens tonight, today has been so nice. I really missed us all being collectively freaked out over something Taylor’s up to and the feeling of anticipation that comes with it. Not to mention new people meeting Taylor and the pure joy in their photos! I’m so happy today and can’t wait for this new era, be it tonight or next year, whenever, because I love this Taylor Swiftian excitement in my life!!!!!!
People on my dash talking about their club: It doesn’t matter what happens today in the last game of the season because we’ve had a good season and we should be happy. I am proud of the boys and will always love them.
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Guys no matter what happens today, we ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD. WE HAVE THE BEST SQUAD. WE ARE ALL A FAMILY. I HAVE FAITH IN MY BOYS 10000% AND YOU ALL KNOW WE ARE ALL SO SO CAPABLE. WE DESERVE THIS. EACH AND EVERYONE IN THE TEAM, THE MANAGEMENT, THE FANS, THE BERNABEAU STAFF. EVERYONE. AND I KNOW OUR BOYS WILL TRY 1000% TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND I’M BEHIND THEM. I’M WITH THEM. I BELIEVE IN THEM. I BELIEVE IN ZIDANE. I BELIEVE IN OUR LOVE. I BELIEVE IN OUR FAITH. #HALAMADRIDHASTAELFINAL
Wherever you are headed, God will be there. There is no reason to have an unsettled heart or mind right now when you know that. The One who was and is to come is holding every single moment of your life in your hands.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” - Revelation 1:8
No matter how troubling today or yesterday has been, your thoughts about tomorrow do not have to be filled with the threats of fear and anxiety, no matter how unrelenting they seem to be. You can rest in His Presence, and realizing that no matter what happens today or tomorrow, a day is coming when you will be with Him forever, in Jesus’ name.
Pray and ask the Holy Spirit give you the strength to hold without wavering to the bigger picture of what God is doing in your life and also, in your heart. Don’t allow yourself to frame all of your thinking around what might go wrong next week or when and if and how your greatest desires will ever be met. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide in remembering that time is in His hands from beginning to the end, and He has promised to be with you for all of it. This means, no moment of your life has been a waste. No years you’ve spent waiting have taken value from your life. Being in a relationship with Jesus, and walking with Him everyday by praying, seeking, worshipping, serving, trusting, and loving Him gives you more value than anything else. It makes it all worth it, because you are worth it, to Him, and nothing can take that away.
Hold onto this when you feel like you’re wasting time or the wait has been too long. Your past, present, and future is held together by the One who holds time within His hands. He has a plan, and you are safe within in His arms, every moment of everyday, from here until Eternity.
