Stay With Me

“Wally. He's back!”
Raven muttered under her breath. She motioned for Dick to get behind her. He did as motioned and Raven's telekinetic powers acted up. They heard a surprised screech and then Wally came through the window.
“What are you doing here?” Raven asked.
“I came to see you Rachel.”
“How'd you know?”
“Uncle probably helped,” Dick muttered.
“Yes he did. Will you put me down?”
“...I'm not Robin. Name's NightWing. And I don't know you.”
“Oh c'mon! Why are you acting like this now?! I'm in a little trouble!”
“More than a little,” Raven said sharply.
“Wait! Tell me what I did! If I know what I did, maybe I can explain!”
Raven stared at Wally for a full minute. Then she turned to Dick. He was looking at the speedster carefully before looking up at Raven. Finally, he gave a small nod. Raven turned to Wally.
“You want to know what you did? Fine. I'll tell you. Your friend, Dick Grayson? He came to my house. He came here. And boy did I hear a story. A certain speedster by the name of Wally West made my little bird cry. You hurt him!”
Dick leaned closer, whispering something into Raven's ear. She took a deep breath and nodded.
“I apologize for my temper. But the fact of the matter is that you hurt Dick. Why?”
“I-I-I was being an idiot! Okay? I was being as stupid and careless as always. And I know I made a huge mistake. But, Dick, I want you. I want to be with you. I lost you once; I don't want to loose you again. I know this sounds weird, you loving another, but I had to tell you. I love you. I want you to love me. And I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”
“...Who said I never loved you?”
“You did. In your messages to Rachel. You admitted to being in love with someone known as WR. But I want a real name. Who stole your heart?”
Dick stared at his best friend. Turning to Raven, he nodded and she released Wally. She exited the room, leaving the two alone. Wally came closer to Dick, wanting to see the truth in those blue eyes that would never be his.
“Please tell me. Who came and stole my little bird's heart?”
Dick looked into the emerald green eyes looking at him intensely.
“You stole my heart, Wally.”
“Stands for Wally Rudolph. Wallace Rudolph West. It would have been too obvious putting WW. So I did something different.”
“Yeah. It was crazy. I'm sorry.”
“What are you sorry for? You didn't do anything!”
“I avoided you. I just didn't know how to be a good friend. Because I thought I was in love with you; because I know I'm in love with you.”
“But I should have trusted you. That's what friends do. Tell you what, I'll forgive you if you forgive me. Deal Boy Wonder?”
“Deal. Can we be friends again?”
“No. We can be much more than that.”
“Yeah. I love you Dick.”
A single spark is all it takes to start a fire. In this case, a single kiss was all it took to ignite their love. Wally's lips pressed firmly against Dick's as he held the little bird close. Dick was more than happy to respond. Raven peeked out through the almost closed door. A smile lit her face and she knew. She knew Dick had found his someone special. And Wally West had too. When they broke apart, Raven exited.
“I'm happy for you two. But Wally, if you ever hurt Dick again, I'll hurt you.”
“No fear of that happening. I'm pretty sure I'll be the one getting hurt.”
“He will be a handful,” Raven admitted. She smiled. “Good luck.”
Raven disappeared again and Wally turned back to his new boyfriend.
“Don't fly away again.”
“I promise Wally. I'll never fly away again. And I'll never fall for another. You have my heart; you always will. And wherever you go, I won't be far behind.”
