Request: Imagine fighting besides Batman, then Batman figuring out that you’re his childhood friend that he loves. by @theshe-wolfwaits
Bruce sat in his desk inside the cave, worrying his head deep in his palms. He had you laid on the surgery table as you bled out you stitched all the while Alfred and Dick were trying to stitch you up again.
You had gotten severely hurt in a fight against Deathstroke and Bruce was forced to take you with him to the batcave. You two had been fighting alongside for a very long time now and he couldn’t just leave you there to bleed. It wasn’t moral. Plus he had that special feeling about you.
And indeed this special feelings was proven to be real. When they took your mask off to take care of you swollen eye Bruce’s breath hitched. You hadn’t changed a lot from when you were younger. Maybe your features were more mature but you were definitely his first love’s face. He was never wrong when it came to faces.
He was stunned, at least. How could he have not figure it all this time. You weren’t even covering all your features, not even your face. He should have known, he should have figured earlier. What if he lost you now that he was too late. Bruce knew that he was cursed to lose the people he loved. He was cursed to suffer. What he didn’t know though was if you’d be from the ones who’d come back.
No. Only his sons were strong enough to come back to life and punch death in the face. You weren’t unbeatable. And for what it seemed, right now you were weak.
Bruce just wanted to talk to you. He stood and watched your unconscious body once the other males left, caressing your face slowly with brushes of his fingers. He didn’t know why he still loved you. He was known to get hooked on feelings just because he couldn’t get through anything in his life. But he had never loved someone as much as he had loved you. You were his first love and as many people say, you never get over your first love.
Maybe because you were too kind to him all the time you two spent together, or because you were the most dazzling creature he had stumbled upon. Either way he was in love with you for so many years and he felt the fire in his heart warm up again as he watched you there, sleeping, looking so peaceful yet so pained and hurt.
Soon you’d hopefully wake up. Bruce would have to face your reaction to the revelation of his secret but he hoped, deep inside his heart that you were in love with him too.
And if only he knew.
