Chapter Seventy-Six


The two men began talking about the problem. All the fight seemed to have gone out of Tess, which had Julia watching her curiously.

“Of course, you know,” Lex was saying, “there’s one other problem.”

“What’s that?” Superman asked him.

“Julia.”

Julia stared at them. “What? What about me?”

“You’re in danger. I mean, it’s obvious Tess was sent to kill you.”

“He’s right, Julia,” Superman told her. “Which means you’ll have to ...”

Julia’s eyes widened. “Oh hell no,” she said. “There is no way I’m going into hiding. I have a job to do. I can’t just ...”

“You have to,” Lex told her. He went to her, holding her. “I could never forgive myself if anything happened to you.”

“I’m not going to stay with you,” she said.

“I wasn’t going to suggest that,” he told her. “What I was going to suggest was sending Mercy. And Hope.”

Julia looked at him. “Hope?” Wasn’t she working for Bruce?

“You remember her,” Lex said.

“Of course I remember her, but ...”

“She’s Mercy’s girlfriend.”

“Mercy’s ...?”

Lex nodded. “Apparently they met while Hope was pretending to work for me.” His expression made it fairly clear he knew what had happened where that was concerned. But he was letting bygones be bygones.

“Well that explains a lot,” Superman commented. He shifted his grip on Tess, reminding them what still needed to be done.

“I’ll put in a call to Mercy,” Lex said.

“Just ... how did you get in here, anyway?” Julia asked. She wasn’t even going to go into how Tess got in. That was something they could figure out later.

“Superman. We were discussing something at the penthouse and he heard you fighting with Tess.”

“Oh, I see.”

Lex made her promise to stay put until Mercy arrived while he and Superman took Tess to the facility where they would lock her down for the night. It was decided the Justice League needed to be alerted about this. One of their own had been attacked and they needed to know about the possible new threat in their midst.

Bruce wasn’t in, Alfred informed her, having been forced to attend some fundraiser. He would normally take his communicator with him, but since Commissioner Gordon was in attendance, he didn’t want to arouse suspicion with the police commissioner. Julia quickly brought Alfred up to date. The older man expressed concern and seemed relieved when she told him she was fine.

By the time she’d got through all the necessary communiqués Mercy and Hope had arrived. She hugged Hope, pleased to see her. She’d known Hope was bisexual, but hadn’t expected to see the depth of feeling in the two women.

“How did you two meet anyway?” she asked when they finally got to her apartment.

“It was when I was watching over you,” Hope said. “Mercy was working security in another part of Luthorcorp. She saved Lex’s life – that’s how she got to be his personal bodyguard.”

“Well, you do a good job,” Julia said, having heard of some of the more recent incidents. “Lex takes some looking after.”

Mercy smiled. She might be a hard woman on the job, but she had always been friendly toward Julia, especially after what had happened over a month ago.

“Well, listen, you guys put your stuff in the second bedroom,” Julia said, noticing they had come with overnight bags, “and I’ll start dinner.” She headed toward the kitchen then smiled at them. “It’s nice to have someone else to cook for. I don’t get to do it nearly often enough.”

The two women just looked at each other and shook their heads. Julia would never change. They both went into the spare bedroom to put away their things.

Julia happily began cooking, trying not to think about the fact that the two women were here to be her bodyguards. She had never considered Hope to be a bodyguard the first time and it made it easier to deal with that way. She knew Lex meant well. But she wasn’t a member of the Justice League for nothing and Bruce had taught her well.

After dinner, Mercy suggested a work out just to see what Julia’s skills were. She was impressed at how much Julia had taken on board.

“Although you’re still telegraphing your moves,” she told her.

“Yeah, Bruce was always telling me off for that.”

Hope was just turning away from the intercom. “Uh, speaking of Bruce ... he’s on his way up.”

Julia stared at her. “What?” She rolled her eyes. “That man is unbelievable.”

The two women looked at her sympathetically. Julia realised Bruce must have taken Alfred’s call and when he’d heard what had happened, had left the dinner, flying immediately to Metropolis. When was he going to get that the two of them had split up, she sighed.

Hope, with that uncanny sixth sense she seemed to have, opened the door before Bruce could knock. She glared at him, making it clear she was not at all impressed with him. Bruce might have been her mentor, but she was also Julia’s friend.

Bruce ignored her and immediately made a beeline for Julia.

“God, are you all right? When Alfred told me ... I was worried sick.”

Julia sighed. It was a little late for Bruce’s concern.

“I’m fine,” she said. “It’s nothing.”

“Nothing? Tess tried to kill you.”

“Well, obviously whoever’s behind it believes I’m a threat.”

“How can you be so blasé about this?” he yelled at her.

“What do you expect me to do?” she yelled back. “Cry?”

Bruce grabbed her shoulders, realising yelling wasn’t going to change what had happened.

“Don’t you see? This is one of the reasons I ... it puts you right in the firing line and if anything happened to you ...”

“That’s the whole problem, isn’t it? You won’t be with me because you’re afraid I’ll get hurt. Because of Batman. How many times do I have to tell you that it’s not your decision to make. It was never yours. I chose to be with you because I love you. It’s you who keeps pushing me away.”

“Right back to Lex, by the look of it.”

“Lex and I are not together like that.”

“It doesn’t look like it from where I stand. He’s in love with you.”

“I know he’s in love with me. It doesn’t change anything. He knows how I feel about you.”

“That doesn’t stop him ...”

“Why do you have to make this about Lex? Why can’t you just ...”

Hope and Mercy had made a discreet exit.

“I can’t choose, Julia. Gotham needs Batman. It doesn’t need Bruce Wayne.”

“See that’s the whole point, Bruce. You see this as a black and white issue. You think that you have to choose. It doesn’t have to be that way.”

“And how do you think I’d feel if you were killed because of something I ... something Batman did. By one of his enemies.”

“And that’s what it comes down to, doesn’t it? Rachel was killed because of Batman. And you don’t want to take the same chance with me. I’m not asking you to. This was my choice from the beginning.”

“You are so fucking stubborn!” he burst out, pulling away from her and stepping to the other side of the room, running a hand through his hair.

“And you’re not?”

The two of them continued glaring at each other for a moment. Bruce seemed to be thinking hard, trying to make a decision. She stood in the middle of the living room, aware that the two women had discreetly locked the door and gone to their bedroom, leaving the two of them alone.

They continued staring at each other, eyes darting. Julia was just thinking what if he kisses me, should I kiss back, oh god, kiss me you idiot, and just as she was through thinking that particular thought, he crossed the room and pulled her into his arms for a kiss that was mind-blowing as well as earth shattering.

Julia felt herself pushed backwards. If Bruce had been less controlled, she was sure he would have slammed her up against her bedroom door. But he had a hand at her back, making sure he didn’t push her too hard as his mouth sought out the pulse point on her neck. Julia moaned as he bit, sending a sharp sensation through her, then bathed the area with his tongue to soothe it.

She searched behind her for the door handle. The door opened so suddenly they were both propelled into the room, nearly losing their footing, causing momentary laughter that died as quickly as it had begun as passion flared once more.

Julia pulled him in for another kiss, exploring his mouth with her tongue. Bruce seemed resistant at first, but she knew him well enough to apply just a little pressure below. She brushed her hand against his hard cock, making him buck against her. She pulled at his belt, slipping it out of the buckle and fumbling with the button of his pants.

She got down on her knees, leaning forward, pressing her nose into his groin. He moaned, shifting his hips, forcing himself closer to her as she breathed in the muskiness of his arousal. Her tongue darted out, licking at the hard length through the fabric until Bruce growled. Julia pulled at the zipper, letting the pants fall as Bruce leaned against the post of her bed for balance.

Shifting her knees to make herself more comfortable on the shag pile carpeting, Julia carefully slipped the now tented boxers past his huge erection, eyeing him. Bruce said nothing as she wrapped her small hand around the bottom of his shaft, licking tentatively. It wasn’t that she had no experience at blow jobs. She’d given Bruce plenty. But he usually liked to control the when and the where. It was one thing that pissed her off about him sometimes. He at first had had no qualms about letting her take the initiative in bed. But the longer the relationship had lasted, the less he liked it.

However, this time he didn’t seem to be making any complaints. On the contrary, from the sounds he was making he was clearly enjoying himself very much.

With a sly grin, Julia continued, licking her way up his shaft, tracing the blue vein at the bottom. Placing a chaste kiss on the tip, she wriggled forward a little more to cuddle his balls, licking the scrotum until it was wet with her saliva. Bruce grunted above her.

Julia went back to licking his shaft once more, feeling it pulse and harden beneath her tongue. Bruce moaned, his hand coming down to cup her head and try and force her into giving him what he wanted. Julia didn’t mind. It was his way of begging, since he never verbalised it, and she obligingly opened her mouth and took him in, swallowing until the head hit the back of her throat. Cheeks hollowing, she sucked, pulling out slightly, then back in again.

“Ahh fuck!” Bruce exclaimed, his hand exerting a little more pressure on her head, a clear signal that he was about to cum. Julia reached up behind him, cupping his ass and pressing her finger in his hole, knowing that would push him over the edge. With a cry, he came, warm seed spilling down her throat.

Once he’d softened, Julia pulled off, hearing a satisfying plop and sat back, watching as Bruce tried to get his breath back. He turned his head and looked at her, dark eyes glinting. Then he pulled her up, pulling her clothes off, not even trying to be gentle. He kissed her hard, almost as if he was trying to taste himself on her, his tongue thrusting deep.

He pushed her on her back on the bed, leaving her just on the edge. Then it was his turn to go on his knees. Lifting her legs to his shoulders, Bruce dipped his head and licked her with one long motion. Julia squeezed her eyes shut, grabbing hold of the bedcovers as Bruce used his tongue to torture her to the edge of madness. She felt him nibbling on her clit, gentle nips that were meant to tease. She moaned, her body shuddering. He knew just how much she loved that.

She cried out when his tongue entered her, thrusting as deep as it could go. At the same time, Bruce pressed his thumb on her clit, massaging the hard nub, increasing the pressure until she couldn’t stand it any more. She was dying to let her legs down, grab him and pull him into her, but she knew Bruce would never allow it. Not at this point. There had been times in the past when he’d just made her cum with his mouth and nothing else and she guessed this was another one of those times.

“Ahh,” she cried out, as he thrust deeper.

“Mmm,” he said, the vibrations of his tongue just driving her crazy. It was almost as if he was eating the most delicious meal he’d ever tasted, if the sounds he was making were anything to go by.

Julia pulled at strands of her long hair, whimpering as he drove her on to the climax, her back arching. She pushed her mound into his face, but he was having none of that. He stilled her with one hand. And then it happened in a rush of sensation. With a shudder, she came, screaming her head off.

Bruce picked her up in his arms, moving her up the bed to the pillows. She could taste her own juices on him as he kissed her deeply. Julia moaned as he shifted her onto her side, lifting her leg to crook it over his hip. Then the blunt head of his cock nudged her entrance and Julia shifted closer to allow him full entry. She cried out once again as he thrust inside her, making no effort at all to be gentle.

***

Lex called Mercy’s cellphone, even knowing how late it was, to get a report from the bodyguard.

“Everything’s fine, boss,” she said, but he caught the edge in her voice.

“What are you not telling me, Mercy?” he said. He was not in a good mood. Tess was practically catatonic and they had got nothing out of her. Superman had been pacing the lab, watching them all like a hawk, although Lex had a feeling it was more out of nervousness than anything else.

“Uh, Bruce is here.”

“Bruce? He ...” Oh shit, he thought. If Bruce was there then they would either be fighting or ... He got his answer less than a second later as a scream, loud enough to be heard through the phone, rent the air. Lex knew that scream. He closed his eyes and sighed. Damn. He should really talk to her about soundproofing.

Superman stopped his pacing and looked at Lex.

“Julia all right?” he said.

“She’s fine. Bruce is there.”

“Bruce?” Superman’s eyes widened. “I thought they split up?”

“Clearly there’s still a lot of unresolved, uh, tension, between them.”

Superman nodded. The two men sighed, both for reasons of their own.

Mm, but probably not the best thing to happen between Julia and Bruce in the long run. It just complicates things.

I've done nothing but write for the last two days, what with being sick with this stupid flu. But back to work today.

It's not going to end well though. Sorry to say. Bruce just cannot see past his issues, as you will see in the next chapter. Poor Lex. Imagine having to hear that. But he'll be the bigger man.

As I say above, it won't end well for the two of them. These two let their feelings get the better of them, but nothing's going to change.

That actually makes me glad to know, because as much as I like the idea of them getting together, its just not consistent with the image I have of Batman.
