sometimes rough is a good thing

Chapter Text

Damian sunk lower in his seat, frowning and huffing. It had been days since his boyfriend had touched him and it was irritating him. Every time Damian had made a move or tried to touch him, even hug, he had either been told no or ignored. He had even been turned away last night when it was time for bed. They always slept in the same bed, even when they fought, had been for a few months before their relationship started

"What's the matter Demon?" Jason asked, taunting him with the name.

"Tsk." Damian relied with his usual sound, growling lightly and playing with his food, clenching his hand around his fork.

"Jay, leave him be." Tim said, nudging Jason with a gentle smile. "He's obviously in a mood, just like Dick."

"Dick is always in a mood." Jason sighed. “I mean, his name is Dick after all.”

"Please don't talk about me like I'm not here." Dick said, looking at the two from across the table. The four of them tried to get together for dinner once a month, sometimes it wasn't the best of times, but they always tried.

"Maybe if you acted like you wanted to be here, you would not be ignored." Damian said, frowning at him.

"I'm not being ignored." Dick said, eating his salad.

"Tsk." Damian grunted, clenching his fork harder. That was the most Dick had said to him in the last few days

"Hmmm, what did demon do to piss you off?" Jason hummed, noticing the out of characterness from the older boy.


"Nothing." Dick replied, shooting a look to Jason, telling him to drop it.

"Oh come on. He had to do something." Jason said, grinning. He always did like to stir things up more.

"I simply told him I do not enjoy being treated like a woman when we have sex and Grayson didn't like it." Damian said, pushing away from the table. "I did not realize he needed to grow up as much as this." He went to walk away, sparing a look at Dick.

Dick glared at him, silently warning him to stop talking.

"Oh, and I told him I preferred it when I was fucked by either one of you because you both make it more enjoyable." He said, sending the glare back and walking off.

Tim blushed and looked at Jason. "You too?" He said then looked at Dick. "Um, it was way before you got together."

Jason shrugged. "Sounds like you got your hands full, Dickie-bird."

Dick growled. "Shut up. It’s nun of your concern.”

"You know.... He liked it when I got rough with him." Jason offered. “Pushed him into the wall.”

"Me too." Tim added meekly. “The one time we had sex, we had got into a fight, I split his lip and then he kissed me.”

Dick glared at them both, frowning deeply. “....Tell me more.”

“What's to tell? Damien is a little kinky is all. He thought you both where far enough in the relationship to confide in you.” Jason said.

“He could have done it a different way.” Tim added. “Damien isn't the best with talking about his feelings.” He shrugged.

“Just spank him and go back to normal.” Jason snorted.

Dick frowned, running a hand through his hair. “I don’t know…”

"Come on, Tim. Dickie has something to take care of." He said, nuzzling Tim's neck and standing up.

Tim nodded following his boyfriend.

Dick sighed and got up, going to his room.

The next few days had been stressful. Dick had gotten even colder, hardly coming out of his room. One time Damian took food to Dick's room and was still ignored. He was starting to get tired of it. He felt like Dick didn't want to be with him anymore because of what he said. Damian really wished Dick would just say that instead of ignoring him, yell at him even, at least tell him it was over. But no, Dick had broken all contact with him. At this point, anything was better than being ignored.

"Can I stay over tonight?" Damian asked Tim one day when they were watching tv

"Why?" Tim asked, looking puzzled.

Damian crossed his arms and turned his head, pouting slightly. "Jason went out of town and you looked lonely so I offered, but forget it." He said, turning away. “Don’t want to come over anyway, your place is probably disgusting.”

"Damian hey, okay, you’re right." The older boy called, grabbing his arm. "You can stay. Thank you." Tim smiled. It wasn't that hard to catch on, it was Damian who was lonely but was too proud to admit it.

"Fine.” He groaned. “I guess I'll be over later." Damien huffed and walked off.

Tim sent Dick a text telling him to make up with Damian because the kid was getting lonely and looking for bed partners.
