It was just one time. Just once. Will Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, be able to squirm her way out of this one? {Batman X Catwoman. Rated Y for suggested sex and slight language}


3. Chapter Three

(A/N: This is the first in a six book series and I don't understand what pregnancy is like, so none but the final will be very long. 6-chapter limit for the first five.)

Bruce wasn't taking the news that he was going to be a father very well.

"It was one time, Selina! One drunken time!" Bruce yelled, like this was her fault.

She was getting angry, getting upset. Furious tears pricked at her eyes. "One drunken, unprotected time, Bruce." she growled through her teeth.

Bruce stared at his lover, suddenly remembering something he'd heard long ago. If a pregnant woman is not calm a lot of the time she holds a heavy risk for miscarriage. Who had said that? . . . His father, that's right. When he was young, the hospital his father had worked at struggled with a heavy fetus mortality rate thanks to the rising amount of murders. Bruce took a deep breath and forced himself to calm down. As angry as he was, he couldn't bring himself to kill an innocent, unborn child . . . even unintentionally.

He pulled Selina into an awkward hug. "Hey, it's all right. We'll make it through this together." he held her close for a moment, and then pulled her away to look at her.

She was tired. Selina looked, and felt, absolutely spent. Through her skin tight suit, a tiny swelling beneath her navel was just barely visible. Oh, God, she really is pregnant.

"Calm down, Selina. It's going to be okay."

Selina took a deep breath and calmed herself. "Bruce, do you want this baby?"

"What the hell kind of question is that?!" Bruce snapped, then scolded himself inwardly.

"Do you want to keep it?" Selina repeated the question calmly. She seemed unaffected by his angry tone, but deep inside she was a little scared of bringing out Bruce's angry side.

"Of course I do, Selina! Abortion is not ethical. It shouldn't be legal. We are not going to kill our baby." Bruce sighed heavily. It was so like her to consider this.

"Okay." Selina winced. She didn't want to carry this . . . thing for the better part of a year. And after it was born, it wouldn't be much better. Attention-starved, always crying . . .

"Selina, do you want to get married?"

At first, she wasn't sure she'd heard him right. Marriage? "A shotgun wedding?" she asked, appalled but pleased.

"Yes." Bruce nodded. He couldn't believe he had just pseudo-proposed to Catwoman. He could probably help her get out of the stealing obsession, though.

"Bruce . . ." she began quietly. She couldn't just say yes. He deserved to know. "Bruce, I'm Catwoman."

"I know."

"But how . . ."

"Selina, I'm Batman."
