Demons & Sunshine 2
Day 2: Package/ Pen Pals
Could anyone possibly explain to him, how admitting someone was right equates to him being possessed. It makes absolutely no sense to him.
One minute he is texting his pen pal turned friend, the next he is being stuffed into his Robin uniform and pushed into a containment cell, by two of his brothers. Where he was left for almost an hour without a single distraction or explanation.
That is until in walked his father, the traitors he calls brothers, Zatanna, and oh no.
"Okay so I can totally tell where all of you are coming from." She stayed a few steps back, nose wrinkled in disgust. "GC have you ever heard about this thing called a shower."
"Very funny, GR, but I don't remember you falling into that damned flower." He shot at her.
"And I remember you wanted to see if you could do a loop." Constantine crossed her arms. "Your lucky that flower broke your fall."
“Yes, but the smell was horrendous.”
“Point still stands, you and Goliath wanted to know if you could do a loop.”
“And we did.”
“You fell!” she was now across the other side of the glass. “You fell almost 700 feet.”
“I survived, didn’t I?”
“That’s not the point.”
“Then would you get to it already.”
“Your as big an idiot as your brothers.”
“Don’t compare me to those imbecilic.” He crossed his arms. “They are the reason I am stuck in here.”
“Seriously ever thought that maybe it's for your own God damn safety!” She began yelling at this point as if it was his fault.
“I cannot control them just as much as you can control anything else.”
“Oh, you wanna go there?” In that moment he knew his mistake. He knows yes Marinette Constantine is most I'm a lovable dork, but oh God when she's mad or wants approval to point you better hope there actually is a God who is willing to save you.
A glyph appeared below his feet in he knew you really did mess up. “I'm sorry I did not mean that you lack control in all you do.”
“Oh, you little demon.” He noticed she slipped her ring off her finger extended into staff. Horns of light extended from her forehead, and it almost looked as if she was on fire. “Do you wanna try that again?”
“I do not wish to die.” Was the first thing out of his mouth and quite honestly, he was even surprised he said it, yet knew exactly why he did.
Because he saw her mad once and that was enough to leave an impression. They may have snuck into hell, made a random demon angry, who then attacked them. But unfortunately for the demon, the demon went somewhere that none of them ever wanted to know ever actually existed, and that was the pissed off side of one Marinette Constantine.
“Great now that we've got that out of the way why the hell do, they think you're possessed?”
“My brothers are imbeciles. That is the only explanation I can give.”
“Yeah, what's funny is that they stuck you in a glass box.” An amused smile flitted across her face as she transformed the staff back into a ring and placed it back on her finger.
"Yes, but that doesn't explain my current situation." He knocked on the glass.
"How is you are stuck in a glass box this time?"
"I'll give you a guess."
"Your insufferable brothers."
"It is like you are magic."
"Oh, hardy har har. But that doesn’t answer why they did what they did." She mocked. "Wait is this why you text earlier?"
"Oddly enough it wasn't, but I would count it."
"What the Fuck is going on?!?!!" Todd, or well Red Hood, screamed.
"A rather pleasant conversation between friends until you screeched like a damned banshee, To..." She retorted but was cut off.
"Marinette!!" He yelled at her, cutting her off.
"Fine." She surrendered. "So good news, GC isn't possessed so you can let him out." She had turned towards the others. She then turned back towards him and placed her hand on the glass which seemed to have completely vanish before her hand even reached it. “Why did they jump to possession? Isn’t an imposter more probable?’
“Well yes.” He finally stepped out of the cell. “However as much as it pains me to admit unfortunately my family is more perceptive than most and would have noticed.”
“So, possession?” They were now walking away from the stunned and very much confused Zatanna, Batman, Nightwing, Red Robin, and Red Hood. “Like how in the nine realms is that a logical jump?”
“Your guess would be as good as mine.” He shrugged.
By now they were quite a way away from his family, and judging by the portal that Marinette opened, they are definitely in her apartment in Paris. “I don't know about you, but I think this entire ordeal needs a nice care package.”
“At this point I think it would confuse them even more… let's do it.” He agreed and immediately felt magic wash over him and he knew his entire uniform with just sent back to the bat cave and he was now standing in his regular everyday attire. “What should we begin with?”
“What's a better care package than good food, video games, movies, and shopping.” She smiled.
“I agree with the first three, however shopping is not exactly my ideal relaxation activity.”
“Fine…” She huffed, crossing her arms, before a smirk appeared on her face. “Then that means you have to stand still and let me take your measurements and design something for you.”
Yes, he knows that he just fell into a trap, sure she has been trying to get his measurements or design him anything for almost the entire time that they've been friends. Equating to roughly five years of friendship and three years being pen pals. He knew he just messed up, and if he said no, then they would go out shopping, because she was relentless, so he had to pick the lesser of the two evils.
“Alright I will stand and let you take the measurements.” He pinched the bridge of his nose knowing exactly where this was going to lead.
“Yes!” She jumped in the air pounding her fist up.
“Now time to eat then.”
“Oh, hell yes!” A huge grin on her face.
Sure, it was the early hours of the morning in Paris, but neither cared. And so long as his brothers didn’t know where he was, and they were not here he counted it as a win.
