"A true relationship is someone who accepts your past, supports your present, loves you, and encourages your future." - Unknown
Few things I really have to know
"Habibti, I need to ask you a few questions," said Damian.
Marinette, his new girlfriend, tilted her head curiously. "Of course, Dami."
Before I go and let you in
"Do you think you'll be fine with the press once we release our relationship?" Damian asked nervously. It wouldn't be the first time one of his girlfriends had run off because she couldn't deal with it.
And he wasn't willing to go through the heartbreak again.
Don't wanna be irrational
Marinette giggled lightly. "Yes, I will be."
"Really?" Damian wasn't really convinced.
"Really," Marinette confirmed. "You know, as Jagged Stone's designer and Adrien Agreste's girlfriend, I thought you wouldn't be too worried about that."
And make the same mistakes again
Damian's lips tugged up into a smile when he remembered. How could he have forgotten?
"I don't want to make the same mistake again," he said honestly.
Marinette's eyebrows furrowed for a second and then they shot up when she realized what he meant. "You mean...your girlfriends have broken up with you because of that?"
Nodding, Damian elaborated. "Because they let the fame get to their heads. After some time," he shook his head defeatedly. "They just...stop seeing me for who I am-"
He was cut off when he felt Marinette wrap her arms around him. "I won't ever let that happen."
Looking into her eyes, Damian believed her.
Would you be there
Alfred was surprised to see Master Damian's girlfriend at the door. So early, too, he thought.
Nevertheless, he smiled at her. "Miss Dupain-Cheng, this is an unexpected surprise. What are you doing here so early? On a weekend, too?"
5 AM on a weekend?
She looked surprised, as if she hadn't realized that.
Blushing when she realized it was 5 in the morning, she apologized. "Sorry, Alfred. I didn't mean to wake you up."
"Not at all, Miss Dupain-Cheng." Alfred said, not sure where this was going. "I was already awake."
Waving her hand casually, she said, "Call me Marinette. And to answer your earlier question, I'm here for Dami's birthday!"
She visibly brightened at the thought and Alfred couldn't help but smile fondly at her. "Of course, come in."
"So, I was thinking of making Damian's favorite cake because I'm a baker and I want this to be one of Damian's favorite birthdays-" she rambled and then came to a stop. "I'm rambling, aren't I?"
Chuckling, Alfred gestured to the kitchen. "Yes, you were. Would you like to make the cake in the kitchen?"
A truly delightful girl, Alfred couldn't help but think as he watched her bake with enthusiasm.
Through the thick and the thin
