Sneak Peak | 07/2020 Fanfic (Teen Titans | Starfire x Jinx) ($5+ Tiers)
Covering her mouth as she yawned, Starfire squinted through her tiredness as she made her way to the kitchen of Titan Tower in the middle of the night, seeking out the fridge for a glass of water. Setting her glass on a nearby counter, she hummed to herself as she opened the fridge in search of the water filter pitcher.
Her fiery ginger hair was pristine as it fell along her back and shoulders, reaching just past her waist and teasing the view of her shapely, nearly bare ass, which poked into view along with the purple thong tucked between its cheeks as she bent forward to peer into the lit fridge. Her slender fingers drummed against the outside of the fridge’s door as she looked about, stopping short when she heard a rustling out in the connected living room.
Thinking that she was the only one awake - that and the fact that Titan Tower was no stranger to surprise attacks at all hours, she was quick to react, jerking out from behind the fridge door, green eyes glowing as her brow furrowed. Hands raised and palms straight, light, slightly transparent matching green orbs surrounded her hands in preparation for battle.
“I know you are there,” Starfire warned, eyes glancing about as she moved to exit the kitchen. “Please. I would rather not fight while my friends are trying to sleep.”
“I’m not here to fight, you alien freak,” came the sharp voice of Jinx as she walked out into the living room from out of the hallway she was about to walk through.
Naively taking her word, Starfire’s hands lowered, the glow in both them and her eyes fading as she looked quizzically to Jinx.
“Jinx? Then … If you are not here to fight, why are you here? And why in the middle of the night?” Starfire asked, stepping into the living room to speak with her.
“My don’t you mind your own business and tell me where Cyborg’s room is,” Jinx snapped.
“Why are you looking for Cyborg?” Starfire questioned, brows beginning to furrow again.
“Ugh, someone like you wouldn’t understand,” Jinx groaned, turning away from Starfire and starting back down the hallway toward the boys’ bedrooms. “I’ll find it myself.”
Scowling, Starfire flew in front of Jinx, stopping her in her tracks as she raised her arms out to either side of her, blocking her path.
“Tell me why you are looking for Cyborg,” Starfire demanded.
Jinx glared at Starfire and her persistence, glancing down at her t-shirt. She was wearing one of Robin’s Nightwing shirts. One that was a little too big for her, but one that she liked wearing for that very reason.
“Why don’t you go back to cuddling with your boyfriend? It’s none of your damn business why I’m looking for Cyborg. That’s between me and him,” Jinx practically hissed, threatening to shove past Starfire, only to take a wary step back when her eyes started to glow in warning.
Sighing, Jinx’s narrowed, knowing that she wasn’t going to get by Starfire without either the truth, or a fight. And since a fight with her would most definitely end with a fight with all of the titans, she clenched her fists, swallowed her pride, and growled out the truth.
“I … I need to know,” she started, her pink eyes glancing down and to the side in embarrassment.
“Need to know? What do you need to know?” Starfire pressed, the glow in her eyes subsiding and being replaced with genuine curiosity.
“If … If any of it was real! And if it was … If … If maybe … If maybe we could try again,” she went on, her hands coming to her biceps to hold herself, her brows pinching, and moving Starfire’s to do the same.
Jinx still hadn’t recovered from the time that Cyborg spent undercover in the Hive. She hadn’t recovered from how he made her feel. How she thought he felt about her … She’d searched for it in others. But no matter where she searched, or how she tried to fill the void that he left, she couldn’t. Not when she was still wondering. Still wondering if maybe there could have really been something there. If they really could have had a life together. She had to know.
“Jinx …” Starfire cooed, her arms lowering, much like her defenses.
“So … So just get out of my way, would you? This has nothing to do with you!” Jinx hissed, moving to push past Starfire again, only to be stopped again - though this time with a gentle grip of her shoulders.
“I’m sorry Jinx, but Cyborg is not going to give you want you want,” she said, with as little maliciousness as she possibly could. “You have to move on.”
“Move on?!” Jinx snapped, slapping Starfire’s hands from her. “What does someone like you know about moving on?”
“What?” Starfire questioned, taken aback by what seemed like an attacking tone.
“You? And your perfect little life with Robin? Someone like you wouldn’t know the first thing about moving on! About heartbreak,” she growled, glaring at Starfire’s Nightwing shirt, her thoughts twisting as she plotted. “Tch. But maybe you’re right. Maybe I should move on. Maybe I’ll move onto a different titan. Maybe I’ll see if Robin’s gotten tired of a bimbo like you. See if he wants a real woman, not some halfwit alien whore.”
Starfire’s eyes widened before narrowing in offense, her brows pinching as he hands slowly curled into fists. “Jinx, stop it. This is not going to help.”
“No, no. You’re right,” Jinx said, her hands starting to glow with a dull pink aura. “Maybe I’ll sprinkle a little bad luck on your relationship. So you can see what it’s like to struggle in one. And then, when he’s finally sick and tired of you, I’ll give him everything he’s ever wanted.”
Again, Starfire’s eyes began to glow in warning, making Jinx partially flinch back. She knew she wasn’t a match for a riled up Starfire. But dammit did she want to take her shot.
“On second thought,” she quipped, coming up with an alternative. “I don’t need bad luck to prove to Robin that you aren’t worth his time. All I have to do is show him how worthless you are without your powers.”
“What?” Starfire snapped, the glow in her eyes fading again.
“I bet you’re nothing without your glowing bullshit,” Jinx spat. “I bet the only reason you’re a part of this team is because of that. You don’t know anything about hard work. About what Robin's worked his whole life for. I bet you couldn’t hold your own in fight against me, or anyone for that matter without your so-called ‘ talents’.”
“You’re wrong,” Starfire pointedly denied.
“Yeah? Prove it!” Jinx demanded as she lunged forward, catching Starfire off guard and tackling her to the floor of the hallway, eager to take out her built up frustrations on the titan.
