"Where's my tie?" Robin ran around the house throwing clothes in the air. Bruce entered the room an ironed tie in his hand.
"Alfred was ironing it as you asked" Robin gave a sigh of relief and snatched the tie off his mentor. He fixed his collar and pulled his jacket on.
"Would you mind sparing me 20 bucks?" the teenager asked putting his hand out.
"Why?" Bruce began to take out his wallet.
"Just canteen food" Bruce put his wallet back in his pocket.
"Oh! What gives?!" Robin cried. He looked at the clock. "Come on just 20 bucks. Please or I'll be late!" he put out his hand again.
"Where are you really going?" Bruce asked cross armed. Robin sighed.
"A game Center" he looked down at the floor. A grip clasped his hand and in his palm lay 20 bucks! Robin looked up at his mentor.
"That wasn't so hard was it?" Bruce grinned. Robin cheered and gave him a Great Big Hug. Of course Bruce didn't know how to react. Alfred was in the distance pretending to hug someone. Bruce slightly got his point. He hugged his adopted son back. As their bonding time finished Robin headed for the door sprinting. Bruce was just about to say something but it escaped his grip. Alfred appeared beside him.
"You did well Master Bruce"
They watched the young teenager run off.
As Dick arrived at the gates, the bell just went and all the kids were heading to their first class. A red haired girl ran up to him.
"Hey Dick!" The teenage boy looked up panting.
"Remember this girl?" she revealed a blonde girl behind her and soon Dick started choking.
"Your the boy who took a photo of me on my first day, weren't you?" Dick nervously nodded.
"Uh yes. That was me."
"So I was wondering if you two could get along" Barbara stated as they arrived in the hallways.
"And why is that?" Dick asked.
"She has biology first then science just the same classes as you"
"What?!" Dick stumbled to his locker.
"I guess I should get to class. See you around!" Barbara ran off to her first class.
"So do you like Young Justice?" Artemis asked as Dick got his books out his locker.
"Um sure" Dick slapped his head when Artemis wasn't looking. Great! Now we're talking about the team!
"Who's your favorite hero?" the two teenagers entered the classroom.
"Robin" Artemis nodded.
"Atleast it's not Kidflash"
"What's wrong with KF?" Dick asked susiciously.
"He's annoying in a way..." her voice trailed off.
"Have you met him?"
"No. Well Yes. No! I-" Dick smiled.
"He's saved me once" Artemis finally answered.
"Oh really?" he tried not to laugh. "Must of been a crazy experience"
"Yeah. A crazy journey" she whispered to herself.
"You know," Dick sat down in his seat. "There are rumors that Kidflash likes that Female Archer. Artemis froze. Dick smiled and sat back in his seat. Won't be such a bad day. The teacher entered the room and all the kids took their seats. Artemis looked around then sat next to Dick.
A long day, Dick. A very long day...
As school ended and the bell rang, Dick was the first kid to escape class. He got changed back to uniform as gym class ended. He shoved his books in his bag, and ran straight out the hall and away from his terrible stalker.
A very bad day...
Well since Artemis only knew Dick in each class, she followed him around. They were in every buddy activities together. Dick didn't want to be mean! She sat next to him in every class, waited by his locker as lunch or recess ended, it was too much for him, he just wanted to get away.
He was finally out the gates. He panted loudly trying to catch his breath. He started walking forward when he spotted a black sports car parked around the corner of the school. A rich man stepped out and revealed himself to the teenager.
"Bruce!" Dick froze. "What are you doing here? I was just heading back home." Bruce walked towards the teenager.
"I was wondering if you had time we could get a bite to eat at the pizza parlor?" Dick started running to the car. He dived inside.
"Where's Alfred?" Bruce stepped into the drivers seat.
"Alfred is having a day off, just you and me" Dick did a silent cheer. Soon they drove off to the Gotham City pizza parlor.
"What's next?" Wally asked jumping up and down. "Burgers? Ice cream?"
"Pizza!" Barry exclaimed.
"I'll race ya!" Wally was just about to run until Barry took hold of his T-shirt.
"Hey!" Wally tried struggling from his grip. "Afraid to lose?!" Barry glared at him and looked ahead of them.
"There are people here. Don't want to show your super identity do ya?" Wally looked ahead and Barry stopped clinging to his T-shirt.
"They look rich" Wally said dusting himself off.
"The teenager goes to Gotham Academy. Its where rich kids go to" Barry explained as they walked on.
"Is that their car in the back round?" Wally pointed to the black sports car.
"I think so. Looks luxurious" They kept walking forward. The rich people got closer and clearer.
"They look familiar..." Wally said quietly.
"Yeah. The man just looks like..." They kept walking until Barry could see clearly enough.
"Bruce Wayne!" he cried out. The rich man looked up wide eyes.
"Barry?!" Barry looked down.
"Wally!" Dick turned around.
"What?!?" Wally was confused. "Uncle Barry, you know Bruce Wayne! The million dollar playboy!!"
"Uh yeah. I guess..." Barry nervously said.
"Old friends" Bruce playfully punched Barry in the arm. Wally nodded and turned to the young teenager.
"I'm Wally" he put out his hand. Dick breathed out and turned around.
"Dick" he shook his hand.
"Um, nice name..." Wally tried making it sound like a compliment. "So do you like Young Justice?"
WHAT!?! Twice in one day?!
"Yeah sure" Dick replied.
"Who's your favorite hero? Mines Kidflash"
"Robin" Dick smiled. "Who's your favorite girl hero?" Wally hesitated.
"I don't know.."
"Well mines Zatanna. There's also Miss Martian and Artemis..." Wally slowly trailed off. "Who do you like?" Wally thought for a moment.
"Artemis I guess"
"Why? She has no powers" Dick asked.
"She has skill with a bow and arrow. Pretty too..."
"Yeah wish she was here to hear that" A click was heard from behind of Dick.
"What was that?" Wally asked.
"What? I didn't hear anything" he shoved the tape recorder in his pocket. Wally shrugged.
"Have pizza with us" Wally suggested. The two adults jumped in.
"No way Wally" Barry pointed.
"We have important business to attend to" Bruce instructed.
"Yeah right. Like counting money?" Wally pointed out. "Come on" he pulled Dick into the pizza parlor. Bruce and Barry had no choice but to follow.
The teenagers and adults took their orders and sat at a table.
"So why bow and arrow? I mean she is pretty but Miss Martian is a shapeshifter" Wally scratched his head.
"I just like her okay?"
"What like you have pictures of her in your room or like-"
"Dude!" Wally exclaimed.
"What kind of game is he playing?" Barry whispered to Bruce.
"A game to get answers. Smart" he nodded proudly and took a sip of soda.
"She's a great hero okay. I know she has no powers but she's an incredible girl"
"Have you met her?" Dick drank his soda.
"Yes. No. I mean she's saved me once or twice" Barry snickered. Wally glared at him.
"Don't mined me" he took a bite from his pizza slice.
"So Bruce Wayne huh?" Wally changed the subject.
"Yeah a pleasure" Dick leaned back in his chair.
"Oh I was supposed to meet Robin at the Game Center!" Wally stood up. The Game Center! I completely forgot about that! Robin slapped his head.
"I better tell him that I'll be late" Wally took out his phone.
"No!" the others screamed. He dialed to fast. He held the phone to his ear.
"Pick up" Suddenly a ringtone went off. Dick's. He reached inside his pocket and turned off his phone.
"Weird I just got a call then too" he sarcastically laughed.
"Okay...." Wally looked at him suspiciously. "Well he's not picking up!" he put his phone in his pocket. Dick sighed in relief.
"I should go" Wally said. "Cya uncle Barry. Nice meeting you Dick and Mr Wayne" he started heading for the door when....
They all looked outside the window. A huge ugly thing, yes 'thing' it was so ugly I have no idea what it is, threw a car across the street.
"BATMAN!!!" it roared out. "COME FIGHT ME! I KILL YOU!!!"
"Well that guy doesn't know how to make a first impression does he?" Wally asked. Bruce stood up
"This is not good" Dick followed.
"What about me!? I have been stuck with Artemis all day then Wally now an ugly thing wants to kill you!!!"
"What!?" Wally acted surprised.
"This is a life or death crisis for those people" Bruce looked at his son.
"Where's Bats? He's never late!" Wally stared out the window. Dick groaned.
"Okay so am I allowed?"
"Yes!!!" Bruce threw his arms in the air.
"Yo!" he turned to the young teenager.
"Wally your my best buddie"
"Um we just met?"
"Shut up and listen! Wally I need to get out there and so does Bats" he walked up to Wally. "And so does Kidflash"
"How did you know!?" Wally stumbled backwards.
"You still don't know who I am!?" Dick cried.
"Robin!" Bruce shouted. Dick turned around.
"Wally, we need to get out there..." he ran off with Bruce.
"What!?" he hesitated and looked at his uncle. "Bruce Wayne? Batman? Dick Wayne Robin!?"
"Dick Grayson. Long story short. Robin was adopted." Wally couldn't believe his ears.
"Come on! Let's get out there!" Barry sped off. Wally crossed his arms.
"Atleast I know my best friends secret identity!" he followed his uncle.
They all noticed that the ugly thing was unbearable to look at. It was SO ugly!!! Some people nearly died from its looks. Robin swung down from a building with Batman. The ugly thing spotted them.
"Ugh so ugly!" Robin cried making a face.
"I have seen worse" Bats spoke getting a batarang from his utility belt. The ugly thing charged at them.
"BATMAN!!!!" the sidekick looked up at his mentor.
"You have so many fans"
"Over whelming" the billionaire answered.
"Why isn't anyone ever just whelmed?!"
They braced themselves for impact.
But that battle is another story.
