Let Me Love You
Pairing: Bruce Wayne x Reader
Request: “Can I please have a Bruce fic where he finds the reader training but he’s concerned because she’s going too hard and hurting herself. She hits one more time and nearly collapses and he tries to stop her so she tries to get him to fight her but now she’s so weak that he just blocks and pins her? Maybe she was doing it because after some previous shitty events she’s alone and has to defend herself and he reminds her that she never was, maybe by revealing his long term crush? Thx ❤❤ sorry it’s long”
Warnings: Mentions of harassment
You were at your house training. It had been a long and stressful week and you couldn’t take it anymore. You needed to do something that would get rid of your negative thoughts and emotions that had build up inside of you with no way out. School was nothing but hell you had exams the upcoming week which stressed you out, the school’s mean girls always had something negative to say about you, and on top of that one day while walking home from school you had been harassed.
It had been two hours already that you had been training non stop. You were so focused on hitting and kicking the punching bag that you didn’t even see Bruce walk in he had been standing there watching you for quite a while now. “Y/N!” He exclaimed.
You breathed heavily trying to catch your breath, “How long have you been standing there?” You asked.
“For the past 5 minutes.” He replied. “Well if you excuse me I need to continue my training.” You said.
You stood in your fighting position, you were ready to do a spinning roundhouse kick. Although you felt a little dizzy you shook it off, bad idea. You were in the air and you thought everything was going well until you missed your footing and fell on your side. Bruce rushed over to you quickly.
“Y/N are you okay?” He asked.
“I’m fine.” You lied. Everything in the room was spinning, you tried to stand up only to fall back down. But not as hard because Bruce caught you.
“You need to take a break, look at you you’re paler than a ghost.” He said worried.
“I can’t I need to keep going.” You said. “But how long have you been doing this for?” Bruce asked.
“Two hours, no breaks.” You said. “You need to sit down.” He said.
“Nope I’m going to keep going so instead I’ll use you as my punching bag.” You said.
“Are you sure about this? I don’t want to hurt you.” Bruce said.
“Please you wouldn’t be able to.” You smirked.
You went to throw in a punch but Bruce blocked it, you tried again only to have Bruce grab your arm and spin you. You felt all of your energy drain and you collapsed on the floor. Your head was against Bruce’s chest and his arm was wrapped around your waist.
“That’s it you’re done for today.” Bruce said as he picked you up.
He sat you on the couch and grabbed your water bottle. “Here, you’ve lost a lot of fluids.” You took your water bottle and sipped out of the tube.
Bruce wiped your sweat off with a towel as you drinked your water trying to cool down. It had been a while but you were finally back to normal. Your heart rate had calmed down, you were cooled down and color was starting to return to your face.
“Why did you do this Y/N this isn’t like you.” Bruce said concerned.
“A shitty week of school changes you.” You said. “What happened?” He asked.
“We have exams this upcoming week which stresses me out and the mean girls at school always have something to say about me.” You said running a hand through your hair.
“You are so smart Y/N you’re going to do amazing on those exams I’ve seen how hard you have studied. You’re one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. And those girls are just jealous because they can’t compete with such a beautiful, smart, kind and amazing girl like you.” Bruce said.
You smiled at him slightly, “Thank you Bruce that means alot coming from you.” You said as you hugged him.
You felt his chin on top of your head his arms were wrapped around you. “There is something else that is bothering you, I can sense it.” He said.
“It’s nothing…….” You trailed off clearly lying once again.
“You know you can’t lie to me, we’ve been best friends for two years now. I know you like the back of my hand. What else happened?” Bruce asked.
“I-I was harassed when I was on my way to my house from school yesterday….” You said quietly as tears built up in your eyes.
“Why didn’t you tell me? You could’ve called me and we could’ve gone down to the GCPD, we could’ve told your dad.” Bruce said.
“Bruce my dad is Jim Gordon he would have made a huge deal about it and you know what else he could’ve done.” You said as tears streamed down your face.
“Because it is a big deal, I love you and I should’ve been there to protect you if I had been it wouldn’t have happened.” Bruce exclaimed.
“Y-you what?” You asked.
“I love you Y/N I always have liked you I just couldn’t and didn’t know how to say it until now. I want to make you the happiest girl on this planet just like you’ve made me happy. You don’t even have to try just seeing your smile or being with you makes me the happiest guy on this world.” Bruce said.
“Thank you Bruce. That makes two of us.” You said smiling.
“You’re saying that you…..”
“Yes Bruce I also have liked you for quite a while now and you don’t know how long I have waited to hear those words from you. I love you too.” You stated.
Bruce leaned in, he wrapped his arms around your waist pulling you closer. You stared into each other’s eyes before connecting your lips together. It was a magical moment, you both had been waiting for this moment a while now and you couldn’t wait to see what was in store for you both in the future.
“Does this mean you are my girlfriend?” Bruce asked.
“Of course.” You giggled.
