He wanted to push her away, lest she would make him act. He could've done that easily, if it was someone else. But this woman this woman was different. It wasn't just the fact that she out did him by scores with respect to physical strength. There was something else, about her!

"Thanks for saving me!" she whispered with uncharacteristic modesty which was restricted only to her tone, and not to be seen on her face. What a perfect restraint!
"I " he tried to breathe out quickly and noiselessly, the usual technique he employed to calm down his heart. But that didn't seem to work. Instead, his breath got stuck in his throat and he struggled to swallow without wincing.
The cold expression on the face he had so practiced for years just wouldn't stick. His lips seemed to have a brain of their own, for they refused to close the gap they created, something which his original m

She moves quietly, illuminated by the moonlight. She lightly touches the backs of books. She wonders, which of them were in his hands. It is not a surprise for her, that her thoughts drift to him. They've been doing this for a long time.
She reaches for upper shelf. For a book smaller than the other ones, with a simple black cover. It looks old and she can see this is poetry. She opens it on a page, which seems to be read many times. It is a short poem.
When she's about to read the first line, she hears low voice behind her back. It runs from shadows of the shelves. He moved as quiet as always, she couldn't hear him. Still she did not get scared.

Good MorningShe did not need an alarm to wake her up. The soft rays of the morning sun together with hint our clouds, when filtered through the glass of the window and diffracting at the fringes of the curtain, bathed the room in an illumination of a mélange of colors. It was as though they were sent out to bless her, the daughter of Gods as she was. She squinted a bit, as her eyes failed to accommodate the entirety. It felt strange. Even though she had been sleeping there for a month now, she never had to take the sun shine in her eyes before.Good Morning3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Parties were never my thing. I was required as a leader to attend them. Gallas. Balls. Appearances. Always I was told to go. Because I'm Wonder Woman and I have to do it for the team. It was so...stupid for someone like me to have to do this. The first heroes of Gotham were at a celebration for the first owner of a world-wide meausem. Mr. Banks. He was about 87 and very rich. Unfortunately...he was going to die any day from natural causes. Or so he has said. No. The heroes were not in their costumes. We were all in normal wear. Dresses. Suits. Tuxedos. The people were dancing under the lights hung in the trees of the meausem garden. Drinking Champagne and laughing with the music. This is were the night dawned upon us. Only little of them noticed.

Batman was on his usual night patrol. He made the roof top of a tall building as his operating point, from where he could have a clear view of the street, especially the museum, which, according to his sources, is the site of action for the night. He was alone. He insisted Robin to stay out of these chilly night patrols and concentrate on his studies. His grades were beginning to worry him. He had not faced such problem with Dick, he perfectly balanced between his studies and his work. Tim, on the other hand was so obsessed with his newly acquired Robin persona that he dreamt of flying the streets of Gotham all day. No wonder there was a protest from him to Bruce's decision, but the big man had the final word.
The night was colder than usual. Why could't Joker choose a better day to bother him? There was no reason why he should rob a museum, except to attract Batman's attention. "Crime is no fun withou

He doesn't turn around. He's not sure he can let himself. He's not sure he would resist the urge to touch her, if he looked.
His breath dies in his lungs for a one moment, when he feels her hot lips on his nape.
He tries to regain his composure. Tries to speak. Tries to warn her.
She slowly makes her way around him. Her lips move across his bare shoulder, her fingers travel down his back, passing a soft fracture of few bandages.
When she is in front of him, he's not sure he's still breathing.
He can feel smoothness of her hair when she kisses his collar bone. The tips of her fingers examine every muscle of his chest and stomach. They caress every scar beneath them.
Her mouth finds its way along his jaw. Every breath she takes is like the fire on his skin.
He doesn't move even an inch.
Some voice, painful and hard voice, reverberating in the back of his mind, tells him that this is wrong. That he should push her aw

Superman stood over the still unconscious villains and watched the Other with barely concealed curiosity. The boy that looked so much like their Robin, thanks to the Manhunter's flawless illusion, walked over to the computers and slipped a drive into one of the USB ports. He tapped a few keys on the keyboard and nodded a moment later.

So, this probably wasn't what Batman had intended when he sent Jason through the portal. However, the green-eyed Robin had five years of pent up frustration and anger to let out, and Sportsmaster was such an inviting target. Despite the obvious difference of size and age between the two, the first blow to Sportsmaster's face cracked the goalie mask he wore.
The second broke the nose beneath it.
Vaulting over the dazed man lying on the floor again, Jason planted his hands on the computer console and lifted himself over it. As he did so, he twisted his legs around to drive them both into the ribcage of the freaky horned guy that was trying to dislodge the knife in the hard drive. He kicked hard, sending the freak flying back and through several of its little green monkeys and into the wall behind them. It didn't get back up.
He was suddenly flying through the air for a very different reason.

For all the times he had been wounded there was one thing he knew with certainty: when the pain stops, you're dead.
And Robin didn't hurt anymore.
It had been several minutes since he'd been, in essence, crucified in the center of the machine. And in that time he had lost all sensation in his legs and even the burning of his muscles in his suspended arms had receded to be replaced by a numbing warmth that spread through the parts of his body he could feel.
It had been two days since he had anything to drink and even longer since he had eaten. The blood loss, external and he didn't doubt internally, wasn't helping. He was weary, his body running on reserves it didn't have. The darkness was creeping in at the edge of his vision and he wanted nothing more than to let it take him. He was tired; tired of fighting.
And still he couldn't bring himself to give up.

Brittany Heathstone had never been fond of thunder storms, but now as she currently sat huddled in a desolate barn out in the middle of nowhere, she could honestly say she loathed them. The bloody storm had started earlier that morning, and had yet to shows signs of stopping as evening turned into dark recesses of night.
Usually the young woman could tune out the fear inducing noise with a movie, or listen to some loud rock music with Tony and rend herself oblivious. But being shut-up in a barn had limited her normal coping choices down to absolute zilch.
There was nothing that Britt could do to drown out the hellacious booming that resounded over her head, since there was no electrical outlet or appliances. So the woman was stuck, in a somewhat damp patch of hay, holding her knees with her face pressed downward, cringing at every blast of thunder and every flash of lightning.
