I Love You

By Renate

Romance / Drama

Chapter 1

I have had this idea in my head for a while now. Just know that I don't own YJ or the cover image. Enjoy!

"D-Dick... Don't leave... please... just don't leave me..." She whispered, her voice leaving her.

"I won't. I promise you I won't." His voice was shaking as he brushed her red hair out of her eyes. Her pale skin contrasted the dark crimson blood that stained it.

The unconscious body of The Joker lay just 20ft away, the man who had taken two of the people Dick cared about most in the world.

First his little brother, now his girlfriend.

"You can't die Lana, you can't." He whispered, tears in his eyes.

She smiled slightly. Looking up at him from her head's place in his lap.

"I love you Dick, you know that right?"

"Of corse I know. I love you too. Don't ever doubt that, okay?"

She nodded carefully.

"I...I don't want to die..." She said sadly, letting a tear slip down the right side of her face.

Dick didn't know how to respond to that. He didn't know haw to tell her it was inevitable and there was no chance.

But he didn't want to lie.

"I'm sorry, I'm so sorry I let this happen." Tears were now slipping down his face, out of his control.

"It... It's not y-your f-fault-t." Her voice grew quieter.

"Yes it is, I should have known it was a trap."

"How could-d y-you h-have known? Th-this isn't-t y-your f-fault D-dick. I-I p-promise."

"I love you. I love you more than anything." He choked out.

She reached up shakily and took his hand. They were both shaking terribly.

"P-promise m-me y-you w-won't h-hurt y-yourself-f b-because of this-s. P-please." Her eyes were pleading.

"I promise." He replied. His voice almost unrecognizable.

She nodded before whispering her final words shakily,

"I love you"

Her chest stopped rising. Her hand stopped trembling.

"Lana? Lana! Please don't die!" He cried out to her. But he knew she couldn't hear him.

That she'd never hear him again.

He wanted to die after that.

Two people he loved that he couldn't save was worse than when he had been kidnapped by Joker and nearly killed in the process, it was worse than watching his parents die. At least he hadn't been the one responsible for that.

But staring at Lana's tombstone, right next to Jason's, was crushing him inside.

Lana Green

Loving daughter

1997-2015

Jason Todd

Caring brother and son

1998-2013

But he promised Lana he wouldn't damage himself.

3 days later...

Dick woke up to his alarm sounding.

Two-Face had shown up in Gotham and Batman wanted Nightwing along for the ride.

Dick put on the costume and got on his motorcycle to Gotham.

When he arrived, Two-Face was in the process of deciding Tim's fate with his stupid coin.

The coin landed on heads.

Dick knew what that meant.

But he wasn't going to let another person he loved die when he could save them.

He shoved Tim out of the way, taking the bullet to the chest.

"Nightwing!" He heard Batman yell at him.

Tim kneeled over him.

"What the hell were you thinking!" He demanded.

"Not gonna let, another person die..."

He closed his eyes.

When Dick opened his eyes, he saw a blinding light. He raised his arm to shield his eyes, but someone pushed it down.

"Hello?"

They didn't answer, but Dick could just make out her red hair, green eyes, and pale skin.

"Lana?" He asked.

"You stupid bird." She smiled at him.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable.
