Pairing: Jason Todd x Reader
Word Count: 665
You loved isolation, vacation and of course, your dear boyfriend Jason Todd, so when you added all three together, you should be ecstatic, right?
Very, very wrong.
“Jason, I’m bored out of my mind.” You complained like a child. Jason raised an eyebrow and glanced at you from his position under the palm tree.
“But isn’t this what you wanted?” He questioned with a frown.
You rolled your eyes. “When I said break I didn’t mean strand ourselves on one of Bruce’s private islands. This is ridiculous, there’s virtually nothing here! Why did he even buy it?” You exclaimed, knowing you were making a really good point. Bruce never did anything without reason so why did he buy a tropical island in the middle of nowhere with barely anything built on it?
“How the fuck am I supposed to know?” Jason countered, just as clueless as you were.
You crossed your arms as a pout formed on your face, showing Jason that you weren’t happy with this arrangement at all. The two of you had already swam on the beach, played all possible beach games with only two people and used all the items in the villa. There wasn’t much else left to do and Bruce said the helicopter would come to pick you two up in another week.
“We could always swim back?” Jason suggested.
“Swim back.” You repeated, unimpressed. “Not everyone is a crime-fighting vigilante with years of training under his belt Jay.”
Jason shrugged. “I tried.” He then resumed reading the book in his hands.
“Yeah,” you rolled your eyes, “it totally seemed that way.” You got off your hammock and began to walk around, staring at the forested area with curiosity. “Hey Jay?”
“How big’s the island?”
“Dunno, Bruce never mentioned.” Jason answered with disinterest. You hummed and thought for a moment, before a brilliant idea popped into your mind.
“Why don’t we find out?” You suggested with newfound excitement.
Jason looked from from the words on the page. “Huh?”
“You know,” you spread your arms, “explore the island! Who knows what’s out there!”
“Uh, I do.” Jason muttered, “bugs and reptiles and plenty of plants I don’t want anything to do with. And mosquitoes, let’s not forget mosquitoes.”
“Well I’m going with or without you.” You declared, walking away. You knew he would follow you either way, and soon enough you heard footsteps behind you, accompanied by quiet curses.
You walked deeper into the forest, taking note of all the strange, colorful plants and creatures peacefully residing on the trees. You could tell there were many more animals hidden, feeling afraid to show themselves. You weren’t as afraid of animals or bugs as the average person, so you found it easy to navigate the forest. You weren’t afraid of getting lost either since you knew Jason would remember the way back.
After an hour or two of walking, you found a small empty plot of land. It was in the middle of the forest and completely out of place. You frowned and walked to the center but felt nothing was wrong, but Jason thought differently.
He knelt down onto the dirt and… knocked on it? Curious, you lowered yourself down to his level beside him and watched as he started to wipe the sand away. Soon, you saw a grey surface underneath the sand.
You stepped back with wide eyes. “I guess we know why Bruce bought this island now…”
“Well… shall we?” Jason asked, mischief dancing in his eyes.
“Are you sure you want to make Bruce angry? He probably didn’t tell us for a reason.” You protested, feeling unsure.
“You started this.”
“Yeah, but I didn’t expect to find another one of Bruce’s man-cave.”
“You have anything better to do?” He challenged, smirking because he knew you were bored and did in fact, have absolutely nothing to do.
“… fine.” You sighed, giving in. “But if Bruce asks, it was your idea.”
