Mistakes - Jason Todd x Reader
Prompt: I was wondering if you can do an imagine where Jason’s cheated on the reader and is now in another relationship but the reader is pregnant and this makes Jason think why he ever cheated on the reader and just wants to be w/the reader but can’t bc he lost that trust? Sorry if that’s confusing (requested by anon)
“Get out! Just fucking leave Jason!” You cried, your angry tears clouding your vision. You angrily threw Jason’s jacket towards him and shouted at him to leave once more. You shoved all of his shit that you could find in a duffel bag and tossed that at him as well.
“Please [Y/N]! This isn’t what it looks like! I can explain!” Jason pleaded with you. He set the duffel bag down and tried to take your hand but you wretched your hand from his grasp.
“Save it for someone who gives a shit, Jason.” You fumed. “I hope you two are fucking happy together asshole. Get out of my apartment. Now.” You growled shoving Jason out of the door and pushing the bag full of his things into his chest. You slammed the door in his face and sank down against the wall. With tears streaming down your face you hugged your knees to your chest.
“[Y/N] please! Just hear me out!” Jason called from beyond the door. You ignored him and silently weeped into your hands. After a while of trying to convince you to let him back in you heard him huff out angrily. “Fine. Fucking fine. I slept with her! I was drunk and not thinking straight but I fucking regret it [Y/N]! I hate myself for what I did to you. Please … don’t let this be the end [Y/N].” He pleaded softly. A new wave of tears stung your eyes at his admission. You bit your knuckle to bite back the sobs taking over your body. You couldn’t handle it anymore. The pain of his betrayal ripped and teared through your heart. You pushed yourself off the floor and sprinted to the bedroom where you buried your head to muffle your sobs.
Jason could hear your cries of pain and it absolutely shattered his heart. Why the fuck would he do this to you? The woman he loved more than anything in this world? He wracked his brain but couldn’t come up with a satisfying answer. He was a fucking idiot.
Jason couldn’t help but to think that he just lost the only good thing he’s ever had all because he was a giant fucking asshole.
‘I never deserved her anyway. Maybe it’s for the best.’ Jason thought as he walked away from your apartment for the last time.
The next time you saw Jason he had the pretty little harlot he cheated on you with hooked to his arm. You were absolutely fuming when you saw her hanging off of him. You and Jason locked eyes for the briefest moment before you turned and stormed away in the opposite direction as him.
Shortly after you first encounter with him after you had broken up you started to feel sick. Not in the oh-my-god-I-can’t-believe-he-had-the-nerve-to-stay-with-her sort of way more in the holy-shit-I-should-probably-go-see-a-doctor sort of way. When you did end up going to the doctor after about a week of daily vomiting and nausea you were informed that you were pregnant. And god damn it you knew exactly whose child you were carrying.
You were fucking pissed. You were angry at Jason for knocking you up and at yourself for ever loving that asshole to begin with but you could never bring yourself to hate your child. The poor thing never asked to be conceived and as much as you wanted to hate anything to do with Jason this was your child. Sperm donor or no you were going to love this child with all of your heart because despite everything this child was yours.
In your anger and hatred towards your child’s father you decided not to tell him. The last thing you wanted was that man back in you and your child’s life just so he could let you down again. In hindsight you probably should have at least told him about his child but you were so blinded by your anger and betrayal that you could only envision a life without a father in the picture. You were content to keep it that way
“Oh wow.” Dick said staring in shock at something on his phone. He briefly glanced over at Jason, contemplating the question that was burning at the tip of his tongue. Jason rolled his eyes at Dick’s lack of subtlety.
“Just say what you’re going to ask me anyway.” Jason grumbled.
“So … uh … How’s [Y/N] doing since the breakup?” Dick asked hesitantly. Jason froze winced at the stabbing twisting in his gut that the mention of you caused. He frowned at the ground, shook off any physical reaction that he might be feeling and continued to clean his gun.
“How the fuck would I know?” He growled.
“You guys don’t … keep in touch?” Dick questioned.
“No.” Jason replied curtly.
“You … might want to see this Jason.” Dick said hesitantly trying to hand Jason his phone.
“I don’t want to see anything about [Y/N]. We’re through. She made that much perfectly clear.” Jason said pushing Dick’s extended hand back away from him. Dick shook his head and extended his phone back out towards Jason.
“No man. You really need to see this.” Dick insisted. Jason sighed and relented. He took Dick’s phone and hesitantly looked down at the photo that Dick was trying to show you. It was a picture of you and your parents together for some sort of holiday party. You looked happy and relaxed but that’s not what Jason’s eyes zeroed in on. No, what he immediately saw was your hand cradling your defined protruding baby bump.
Immediately Jason’s world stopped turning and his throat constricted and went dry. You had to be at least seven month along and you only split up five … Oh god. Jason shoved the phone back to Dick and buried his head in his hands between his knees.
‘Oh god, oh god, oh god.’ Jason internally chanted trying to control his breathing and growing anxiety. Why didn’t you tell him that you were pregnant? Was it his? Of course it had to be. You would never cheat on him. There was never any doubt in his mind about that.
‘Oh god. I’m someone’s father.’
“You didn’t know did you?” Dick asked placing a calming hand on Jason’s shoulder. Jason numbly shook his head between his knees. “Hey man just breathe. It’s going to be alright.” Dick comforted.
“The fuck it isn’t! I cheated on her Dick and now she’s having my kid! She wants nothing to do with me!” Jason explained his voice raising in panic.
“You cheated on her?” Dick asked in surprise. Before now Jason never elaborated on why the two of you broke up. He was too ashamed of it. Well it was all coming out now. “Why the fuck would do something stupid like that? I thought you loved her!” Dick seethed.
“I did - I do. God I don’t know why the fuck I did it. I was drunk and in the moment and fuck! I don’t know!” Jason cried.
“You have to fix this.” Dick said.
“How?” Jason looked up at his brother with a desperate look in his eyes. Dick’s eyes softened at how vulnerable Jason looked.
“Talk to her.”
Jason doesn’t know how Dick managed to pull it off but he somehow convinced you to meet up with Jason to talk about … well everything. To be honest Jason was sure that you weren’t going to show, he deserved as much anyway. He was overcome with relief when he saw you waddle from your car to the park bench where Jason sat waiting for you. He immediately got to his feet and tried to give you assistance but you brushed him off.
“I’m fine.” You insisted harshly. Jason nodded and led you over to the bench where you awkwardly sat down, your stomach restricting your movements.
“You look good, [Y/N].” He complimented. You narrowed your eyes suspiciously and glared at him.
“What do you want Jason?” You asked cutting straight to the chase.
“I want to be a part of our child’s life.” He said.
“No.” You immediately rejected.
“[Y/N], you can hate me all you want. I’m not asking for us to get back together. I know I’ve lost that chance. All I want is for our kid to have both of their parents in their lives.” Jason tried to convince you. You crossed your arms over your chest and shook your head.
“It’s not going to happen, Jason. I don’t want you in my child’s life.” You said remaining firm in your stance.
“Our child.” Jason corrected. “And you can’t keep me from our kid! I have rights!” Jason said accusingly. You scoffed at the implied threat.
“What are you going to do? Take me to court? That’ll be rich! Yes of course the former Arkham inmate, trigger happy hired gun and former drug lord is fit to raise a child! I can’t see how any court wouldn’t believe so!” You said with your voice dripping with sarcasm.
“Please [Y/N]. You and the baby … you’re all I have.” Jason pleaded taking your hands in his. He was surprised when you didn’t immediately pull away from his touch.
“What about what’s-her-face?”
“She’s gone. She broke up with me a while ago saying that she couldn’t be with a man who was hung up on another woman.” Jason explained, feeling no pain at the loss of the other woman. To him, you were the only one for him but she was an outlet to vent his frustrations. When she realized that all Jason had to offer her was sex she left.
“Huh. That didn’t seem to bother her too much while we were still together.” You grumbled.
“Look, I know I fucked up and I’ll probably never be able to fully regain your trust but I beg you please let me be a father to our child. You can hate me for the rest of eternity if you’d like all I ask is that you give me the chance to be the father this kid deserves.” Jason begged. You were silent for a few moments your brow furrowed in contemplation. When you made up your mind you pinched the bridge of your nose in frustration and sighed.
“Fine.” You relented. “But I swear to god Jason one fuck up and you’re gone. Am I clear?” You practically growled. Jason nodded in understanding and pulled you into a tight hug. You didn’t push him away against your better judgment instead taking in his familiar scent that you had forgotten that you missed. Jason’s hand came to rest on top of your stomach as the baby kicked against him.
“I won’t let you down. Not ever again.”
