Summary: You're a street fighter. Lena doesn't approve of your choices.
AN: Prompt by: card_queen3
You and Lena had met at one of Roulette's parties. She tended to host them to see the kind of people she would invite to her underground fights. You were her champion and of course had to attend to them. Lena came up to you and the two of clicked immediately. You ended asking her out on a date the day after and you've been dating ever since.
You had started going to these fights since you had been kicked out of your place at 18 and ever since then you've been addicted to going out and fighting. You weren't even sure why you loved it as you would always wake up with your body covered in bruises and cuts. Things changed after meeting Lena. The fights were no longer as fulfilling as before. Lena was the one you were now addicted to and she knew that very well. Roulette knew that at any minute she would be losing her star and she wasn't about to let that happen. That's when one day, she pulled you aside and threatened to kill Lena if you tried to leave. If it weren't for the fact that she hid a gun, you would have chocked her. Lena had no idea about the threat and you weren't going to tell her.
Lena knew about the fights but turned a blind eye on them. She tried getting you to stop, saying she was worried and that if you needed money that she would gladly give you. She loved you too much to see you come home with cuts and bruises. Eventually, Lena got tired of repeating the same thing over and over again that she would just simply clean up your cuts at night and hold you close. The only thing she ever asked of you was that if the two of you were going to attend a gala or something similar that you would skip out on the fight for the week. This was no problem, as Roulette's star, you had a lot of say about what was going on.
Apparently, not this week. You practically begged for Roulette to let you skip but she denied any of your claims saying that she had a lot of money riding on this. With no choice other than to accept, you grabbed your gear and headed to the arena.
The fights were brutal. It's like Roulette purposely paired you up with the toughest opponents. It was your second fight of the night and you could barely think. You knew you would have a lot of cuts and bruises that wouldn't be possible to hide no matter how hard you tried. Lena was going to be pissed and you were afraid of what she would do. Eventually, your last fight was over and Roulette allowed you to go home. You called a cab and headed home.
You really tried to be as quiet as possible as you slipped inside the apartment but as soon as you closed the door, the lamp in the living room was turned on.
"If it isn't, my little fighter."
Her voice was unnaturally calm. You dropped your duffle bag on the ground and slowly made your way to her.
"Lena, I-I'm sor-sorry. I r.."
"Don't! You can barely move. Just stay still. This is too much for me to take care of."
You could tell how worried Lena was but she wasn't showing any of emotions at the moments. She needed to be calm as she dialed Kara for help.
Lena helped you lay down on the couch to rest while she waited for Kara to come over with Alex. There were knocks at the door and soon felt Alex check you over. Alex didn't say anything as she started taking care of you and then turned to face Lena once she was done.
"She's fine. She needs a lot if rest. Don't let her move or her stitches will open up. Kara can you take her to their bedroom."
Kara smiled and made her way over to you to gently carry you to your bed.
"Let her rest, Lena. You can yell at her all you want tomorrow but she really needs to get some rest today."
You hear them talk. They said a few other things but you couldn't quite hear them as they whispered the rest. A few minutes later and Lena slipped inside the covers beside you.
You hear her whisper as you fell asleep.
The sun hit your eyes and it made you wake up. Your body was sore as hell and all you could feel was the pain from the fights last night. Despite being hurt, you noticed Lena was no longer beside you.
"What were you thinking? Did you seriously try to hide what had happened."
Much like last night, her voice was terrifyingly calm. It was the same voice she used in her meetings when she needed to take control of them.
"I'm not giving you a choice anymore. I let this go too far and look what got you. For all I know, I'll end up finding you in a body bag next time."
"No, (y/n). I don't care that you love the thrill of the fight. It's not worth it. You're not going to those fights anymore."
You closed your eyes tightly to stop your tears from falling out. Lena was right. Roulette had been giving you more difficult opponents that you could barely take on but her threat was still on your mind.
"I can't Lena."
"You can't? Can't or won't? There's a big difference here. I'm tired of having to clean you up. I love you, (y/n). I truly do but there's only so much worrying I can take."
You had to tell her the truth like you should have a long time ago.
"I can't because Roulette has been threatening me."
Your tears finally come out but you force yourself to continue talking.
"She said she'll kill you if I ever stop."
Lena had not been expecting this answer. This whole time she thought that it was because you loved fighting and she wasn't prepared to take that away from you.
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"She said she'll kill you if I ever did."
Lena rushed over to pull you into a hug. Sort of a hug as you were still hurt.
"You let me worry about that. For now, go to sleep. You need all the rest you can get."
She kissed the corner of your mouth and stepped outside to call someone.
It had been two long weeks of bed rest and you were finally able to get out of bed. Lena had been nothing but kind to you during those two weeks but you couldn't help but think in the back of your mind that she was up to something.
"You won't have to worry about Roulette anymore. Supergirl and her friends had been looking for her. I simply gave them a call and were interested to see where she was."
Hearing this allowed you to relax. You were no longer obligated to have to deal with her anymore. All you could do was hug Lena tightly. You should have trusted her from the beginning.
"Thank you. I should have told you from the very beginning and I'm sorry for being so cowardly."
"Stop. You were scared and I understand that but please tell me if someone threatens you. You know I have Supergirl on speed dial."
You couldn't help but laugh as you pulled away from the hug.
"I know and I promise to let you know from now on."
"Thank you. That's all I ask for. I know it won't be the same as your street fights but I figured maybe you could show me a few moves. It'll be fun."
You were a little hesitant about it as you were scared of hurting her but Lena could handle herself just fine. Most of your fake matches against her would end up with you on your back. The others, Lena would rush you home as she loved seeing you fight a little too much
