Protector - Damian Wayne x Male!Reader
Prompt: Could you write something with Damian protecting his male s/o from bullies (requested by anon)
“Hey pretty boy why don’t you come over here and give Johnny boy here a kiss? I’m sure he’d like it.” Chad your worst bully and tormentor sneered pushing the unsuspecting boy towards you.
“Knock it off Chad. Just leave me alone.” The boy said trying to stabilize himself before he ran into you. You ducked your head down and tried to walk away. You should have known it could never be that simple.
“Just leave me alone.” You grumbled trying to walk away from the situation. Chad reached out and grabbed you by the neck and forced you back close to him.
“Oh come on, can’t you take a joke?” Chad asked bringing you into a headlock.
“He told you to leave him alone.” A deep commanding voice from behind you. You recognized that voice though. That was unmistakably the voice of Damian Wayne, the man you had a debilitating burning crush on.
“No one asked you, rich boy.” Chad spat in Damian’s direction before paling when he saw Damian’s murderous expression. Damian stepped up to Chad and toward over him, which made Damian all the more intimidating.
“I won’t tell you again. Leave. Now.” Damian growled. Chad’s survival instinct kicked in and he let you go. As soon as Chad and his lackeys were out of sight he placed a comforting hand on your shoulder.
“Are you alright?” He asked leaning closer to you. You nodded silently your words being lost at his close proximity.
“Y-yeah. I’m fine.” You stuttered.
“That’s good. You shouldn’t let them get to you.” Damian said. You nodded in response. “If they ever bother you again just tell me and I’ll make sure they’ll never be able to speak to you ever again.” He said in a tone that implied the seriousness of his promise. Your heart fluttered at the sentiment. Could it be possible that he cared for you or was he just being nice? You couldn’t tell. All you knew as that being with Damian made you feel safe. Without giving it a second thought you threw your arms around him and hugged him tightly to you.
“Thank you.” You whispered against his chest. He stiffened in shock at first at the contact but softened when he wrapped his arms around your shoulders.
“Of course.” He responded warmly. You may have been imagining it but you could have sworn you felt Damian hold you just a little closer before you separated and went your respective ways.
