As they stepped into the elevator to take them up to his penthouse, Bruce positioned himself behind YJ, wrapping his hands around the other man’s waist, clasping them in the middle. He let his head rest lightly on Edward’s head, breathing in the scent of his hair.
"I’ll end up there if you keep smelling this good. Could very well drive a man crazy." Bruce was the master of the mood, taking a less than pleasant topic and switching it back to flattery and touch.
He grinned once more, rolling his eyes at that comment. Is that kind of silly humor that made him smile like an idiot to himself. He really admired Bruce’s ability to run away from such bad topics. If it depended on the Riddler alone, the millionaire would be stuck listening to life threatening tales Eddie survived through.
"Then I’ll try my best to keep you sane. If there’s anyone I would be glad to help with that, it can only be a particular mad man." He placed his hands over Bruce’s, closing his eyes. Maybe he was going mad as well. After all, this all seemed too good to be true.
|So I hear congrats are in order. Are you impressed that Mr Wayne managed to be a bit more suave than showing up on your doorstep with a mistletoe headband and claiming that now you 'had' to kiss him?|
To be honest, I think I’m far more impressed by the fact that he even feel like that about me. I mean, sure I’m an interesting guy, handsome and all, but I never thought I’d be his type.
I feel like someone somewhere is talking about me and things they shouldn’t
Bruce ever so slightly cringed at mention of the family, thinking about the members of which he didn’t like, but as soon as revenge on Crane was mentioned…
"I might have done something in regards to Crane." he might as well have been pressing his pointer fingers together bashfully, a little embarrassed of how far he went. "He kept harassing me and fueling how angry I was at him for hurting you and- well. He’s still loose for now but-“
"It’s understandable." Edward said without looking back, frowning slightly at the thought of Crane telling Bruce anything about what happened to him… And cringing at the thought of the same man hurting the one he cared for. "I just don’t want you to get in trouble, but I trust you won’t put yourself in danger for this. He’ll get what’s coming for him, it’s only fair.”
Holding Bruce’s hand, Eddie pulled it slightly just to get his attention while looking to him. It was easy to see the man wasn’t eager to speak of ‘the family’ and honestly, he didn’t want to speak of that now anyway. “Anyway, he’s an idiot. Not worthy much thought. Most crazy people I’ve met are like that, but then again most crazy people I’ve met have been stuck in Arkham one day.”
It’s because summer is coming and…
I’m sorry. I thought it was a good idea but.. Man what i have done with you, Edward…
"I like it when you talk endlessly." he replied while finally pulling away. "In fact, I think the only time you ever shouldn’t is when you’re too busy kissing me." he couldn’t resist coming in for one more peck before committing to actually getting out of the car. After all, the car would start getting cold again soon.
Edward chuckled as the other got out of the car, doing the same. He walked calmly to the side of his friend, still smiling to himself. “I’ll try my best. I tried to keep quiet these days. Didn’t even want to get involved much in some things that have been going on with the family. I assume the others are dealing with it well enough though. And I still need to think of a nice way to get revenge on Crane…”
"I’m starting to think it’s impossible for you to not distract me.” he smiled the rest of the way to his building, quickly pulling them into the basement parking lot and his designated space. As soon as the car was off, his lips returned to Edward’s face, though this time a little more sensual than steamy.
"So you’re one step closer to solve the mystery then." Eddie felt calmer for some reason, like he knew what to expect next. When was the last time he felt that safe…? When Bruce got closer again he closed his eyes, laying a hand over the other’s face gently. He returned the kiss on a similar way, leaning his head a bit to the side to give his boss some space.
Between kisses and caressing, he parted lips with a smile “You’re such an awful person I cannot even talk endlessly like I usually would.”
Bruce was damn lucky he got caught at a red light just in time to hear that. He leaned over quickly, using his steering hand to quickly grab YJ by his scarf and lay on a quick but steamy kiss. Well, as quick as steamy kisses go, managing to stop and resume driving by the time the light turned green again.
He was also lucky that their drive was almost over.
Poor Eddie didn’t eve close his eyes. Really, he barely reacted to the kiss till it was almost over, making a muffled pleased sound as he was left to smile and watch the end of their little trip. He couldn’t be more happy if he tried to.
"Maybe it’s also better if I stop distracting you so much. At least while driving."
"Corgi’s are adorable. It suits you. Small, cuddle-able, mesmerizing legs… albeit for entirely different reasons.” Bruce imagined the other man getting his face licked off by a corgi and it was far too cute for this world.
"I can’t blame him, I’ve been trying to reach your bed for a long time." Bruce quickly got embarrassed by his own joke, laughing a little at himself.
"Heheh, they really are great. I’d usually go for something a bit more threatening, but still." He shrugged, glancing back at the other man with a smile. It was so hard not to feel good right now, after what he got to know recently.
But just as soon he turned his head, face as red as it could get. Still, the nervous smile stayed. “W… Well maybe you could find a way there.” Muttering more to himself than to Bruce, Eddie wished he kept his mouth shut right after saying that.
Bruce’s face was probably going to start hurting from all of the smiling he was doing soon, but he couldn’t help it. It was a good thing he was exited to be able to hold YJ in his entirety again or else he would have trouble focusing on the road.
"A puppy? Tell me all about it. Actually, I’m pretty sure there are laws against not telling people all about puppies, you’re lucky you haven’t been caught not divulging this information."
"He’s… A corgi. You’d think I would prefer a dog more fit for work but he has something unique." Edward had his free hand supporting his face, thinking back on the few days he had with his pet. "He’s just so small but keeps trying to reach my bed. I suppose he dislikes being alone. It’s weird, this is my first pet ever, but I’m really enjoying the experience."
The side door to the car opened upwards, making Bruce able to easily set Edward down in the passenger seat. “It’s a darn shame. You will have to make do with the seat warmers keeping your rear warm.” he winked and clicked the button to close the door, quickly trotting to his side of the car.
Bruce slid into his own seat, following all the important steps someone needed to take before driving. Buckling himself in, checking the mirrors, and moving his hand over to hold Edwards. This whole ‘being mutually in love’ thing was wonderful.
Edward rolled his eyes but couldn’t help that smile on his face. Even the stupid jokes seemed more enjoyable now. He buckled up as well, caressing the other man’s hand with his thumb while keeping his eyes on the road.
"Ah, I didn’t tell you, did I? I have a pet now!" Eddie smiles, throwing his head back a bit. "I was feeling so bad lately, it really helped… He’s great, still just a puppy but he keeps good company."

Bruce raised a brow at YJ’s actions as they approached the car, him walking around to the passenger’s side. “Edward, would you be so kind as to reach into my pocket and get my keys? All you have to do is press the bottom right button.”
He didn’t quite want to let go of YJ just yet.
"Uhm? Oh, okay. Let me just…" He placed his cell phone back to his own pocket before reaching to the taller man’s coat, looking for the said keys there. He searched down to a pocket on the man’s right, pressing whatever he found until both a response noise coming from the car itself.
With a grin, Edward passed the keys to Bruce “There you go. I have some bad news though: As long as I know, you can’t drive with someone sitting on your lap.”
"I always ask for permission first. It’s very important." he quickly dips his face close to YJ’s and boops the tips of their noses together before walking to his car while still carrying Edward in his arms.
"If my apartment isn’t warm enough for you, I can always turn the fireplace on." or warm you myself.
All this attention was wonderful. He could almost purr like a kitten, just keeping himself close to the other man “It’s quite alright, if anything I know you can come up with a nice way to solve this problem… OH! That reminds me…” He reached the back pocket on his pants and started typing in his cellphone as fast as he could.
"There. !! No- NONONO, wrong number-!!” His fingers danced over the buttons again and when he was finished, YJ sighed in relief. “Okay, now we can go…”
