"I d-" The eldest 'son' grew quiet when he caught the glare from Bruce. With a small groan and a feeling of de-aging into a child he sulked low into his chair and tried to give Tim an apologetic look.
"Are you?" Only two woulds could get all four boys to know just how serious Bruce was with this conversation. The room grew quiet and Bruce spoke up again, this time in demand rather than in question. "Are you. With the clone."

When he looked up he saw his daughter, Catherine, running towards him. Her curly brown hair waving behind her as she ran. “Daddy!” She shouted, extending her arms to Dick.Anniversary2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dick smiled and bent down, holding out his arms so Catherine could jump into them. He caught her and picked her up, spinning her around high above his head. He brought her back down to eye level and kissed her cheek, “What’s up baby girl?”
“I saw grandpa on T.V.!”
“Did you?” Dick faked a smile. He wasn’t surprised that she had seen Bruce on T.V. He was either making an appearance as Bruce Wayne, Gotham’s playboy, or they were reporting a Batman sighting.

I wake from what had to've been a dreamless sleep and try to sit up but find out the hard way that I can't. I have literally almost no strength in my body. My head is pounding like crazy, my nose is stuffy to the point where I almost can't breathe, and I've got aching chills running through me. Which never happens. Ever.
What the-oh. Shit, that's right. I have the flu. Or something.
That fact is punctuated by an enormous sneeze that almost propels me out off the couch.
I look around me for a tissue box or something but there's nothing, not even a scrap, and I really really need one. But just when I think all hope is lost-
"Looking for these?"
Along with my boyfriend's sweet sweet voice I find a box of tissues swing dangerously close to my face. The small fingers holding onto it let go and the box drops with a light thud into my lap. I sniffle as I rip off the covering and reach into for soft, cream-colored tissue. The gentleness is a much
TearsThe first time I saw Dick cry, my heart broke into a thousand little pieces that pierced into what I thought was my very being. It wasn't even a heavy cry; just two tears, one for each eye. It was right after a failed mission with more than a few close calls, but we'd escaped without enough injury to live to fight another day. I knew something was wrong as soon as I cracked a joke and he'd done nothing. Not a laugh. Not a chuckle. Not even a smart remark about how I wasn't funny at all and fail at life. He just walked past everyone, down a dark hallway, and towards what had to be a training room. I followed behind him quietly (well as quietly as a speedster can possibly be) until he entered it and we were alone.Tears4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Hmmm?" the older boy hummed, lazily running his fingers through the shaggy black hair fanned out on his chest.
"Do you love me?" Wally snapped his head up, staring down into the innocent blue eyes of his boyfriend.
"'Course I do, Dick. You know that." Dick smiled softly and snuggled further into Wally's chest, apparently ending the conversation there. Wally wasn't having it. "What's wrong babe?"
"Nuthin's wrong," Dick murmured. Wally brushed aside a strand of Dick's hair and tilted his face up to look in his eyes.
"I thought we didn't lie to each other." Dick cast his eyes aside and a faint blush spread across his cheeks.
"I won't laugh, scout's honor." Wally held up three fingers in the scout salute, and Dick couldn't help but smile through his embarrassment. He sighed and laid his head back on Wally's chest.

Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were not many furnishings, only the bed, desk across the room under the window and a wardrobe that was made of some dark wood. Two other pieces had joined the

I am really not quite that surprised when Master Barry comed bounding through the door at top speed. Master Bruce saw him coming before he got within 20 feet so he was already there, grabbing the man by his uniform, ready to beat him within an inch of his life. I step in to intervene, stepping in between them, pushing against their figures, and trying to talk Master Bruce down. It takes about 15 minutes but I am successful in my task. I guide them down to the Batcave where they can talk about their business in a calm, professional manner. We all know what this is about and we are all ready to do whatever we can to fix this.
"Bruce, this is bad," Master Barry starts off.
"You think your end's bad?" Master Bruce counters angirly. I cannot blame him for saying it.

For You Part 3I've escapted the stadium, made it to Wally's house, and am now standing in front of his bedroom door, ready to knock. The deep blush on my face from his televised confession still isn't completely gone. I can still feel the heat there. What he said on the tv was enough to make me heat up like a fire, but the press had only made it worse. As soon as the words had left Wally's lips they had descended on me and Bruce, pushing, shouting, asking a thousand questions at once. Bruce had managed to act as a scapegoat so I could get away. No doubt he's still there, trying to fend them off.For You Part 34 years ago in Drama More Like This

Superboy tried looking harder through the black mask of Robin's disguise while restraining him but was unsuccessful.

Superboy's anger suddenly flared. "Don't order me around," he growled tightening his grip.
He pushed his body closer to Robin, practically breathing down his neck. With his free hand, Superboy pulled off the disguise revealing fearful but angered statuesque blue eyes. The dark raven lashes of the boy's eyes curled upwards and fluttered as Robin blinked in utter confusion at Superboy's gaze.

It has been two weeks since that unfortunate day and it is taking its heavy toll on the manor. Master Richard is not sleeping at all. The only time he shuts his eyes is for brief moments in order to blink. He will not even go to lay in his bed, just sit on the couch or in the Batcave. He barely eats as well. The most I have seen him eat in these past few weeks is one bowl of tomato soup each day. I have to keep an eye on him more than usual in case he falls or collapses and requires medical attention. I must keep an eye on Master Bruce too. I have kept him from finding Young Master Wallace and torturing him until he dies a very painful death for about a total 30 times. It really is exhausting for me.

That is the absolute first thing that pops into my mind when Wally walks into the living room with no shirt, no shoes, and technically no pants on. He's only wearing a pair of red and yellow striped boxers that are riding dangerously low on his hips. The side of my mind that loves to run to the gutter wishes they weren't there at all.
Stop it stop it stop it!
I can feel the blush crawl against my cheeks as I bite my bottom lip from embarrassment. I just watch him walk, not saying a word as he heads towards his kitchen for what will obviously be an early snack. I stare at his lean muscles, semi-broad shoulders, and tight abs. You'd think after seeing these things for years I'd be used to it by now. But no. I'm not. And I don't think I'll ever be.

The worried sound of Wally's voice causes me to look up from my trembling hands in slight surprise. He's half-naked, wearing nothing but a spare pair of (low-rise) jeans we keep here in Wayne Manor just in case he needs some, rubbing a cream-colored towel across his fiery hair trying to dry it of the rain from outside. Good thing Bruce is out on patrol tonight because he would be haing a giant fit right about now. I look at his face closer, realize concern clouds his emerald eyes, and it makes me want to tell him everything's alright as soon as possible.
"Yeah, dude I'm fine," I reply. "Just a little cold."
Cold is an understatement. While out on our date (first one in forever), it had started drizzling, then raining, then outright pouring and Wally had barely gotten us home before the thunder and lightning started going off. We were still soaked though which was not asterous, not at all, and it's time like these I'm jealous of my boyfriend's super bodyheat. I'm

There was so much evidence supporting the fact that he and Wally West were friends, the best of friends, but no matter how much he thought about and how many times he could think of to back up that fact, none of it measured up to the fact that Wally first thought of him when drugged with fear gas.

Everything about Wally West's current situation was really ironic.
Everyone else thought girls were the only thing on his mind these days. They as in the people that knew him all had every right to think so, after witnessing nearly every fancy pick-up line he threw at M'gann.
But Wally himself knew that just wasn't the case. In fact, this odd change in him occurred a while before the team had formed, but it was only afterwards that he realized there was so much more hiding deep within his subconscious.
He figured was just his luck to have two relatively attractive girls working with him nearly every day, back in the team's younger days. But M'gann was always off trying to impress Superboy, and Artemis found him too annoying to want to engage in any kind of conversation with him. Overall, they both ended up being complete turnoffs, and the team thing didn't turn out as awesome as he expected.
What put him down even more was the fact that he had no one else to run to out

Batman was snarling at the team, but most specifically, at Robin. The mission had been long and hard, with three days and two nights invested in what ultimately turned out to be a failure. The goal was surprisingly simple: get in, get the sample, get out. Unfortunately, it hadn't gone so smoothly. An alarm had been tripped at the warehouse they had been investigating, somehow slipping by Robin's electronic precautions. Armed gunmen had immediately arrived, shooting and blowing things up until there wasn't much left.
The team, bloody and bruised and battered, had managed to escape with their lives, but hadn't managed to get a sample of the chemical they were supposed to be investigating. Their mentors, frantic and worried, had beamed the team up to the Watchtower, where they recieved immediate medical care.

About two minutes ago, Alfred sent me a text message (I know, Alfred texts?) about Dick. Alarms and red alerts had sprung up in my mind automatically before he had even told me what was wrong. It's a reflex I've developed over the past few years. He'd said that Dick was staying home from school today because he was sick. Sick. Dick never gets sick.
So I decided to skip school and pay him a visit. Hey, don't look at me like that. Visiting and taking care of the love of your life is a helluva good reason to miss out on boring, 3 hour long lectures and teachers who hurl heavy chalkboards at your face for whispering to your neighbor. But seriously, I'm worried, really worried, and I have to see him. Maybe I'll got to school after that, but I'm not making any promises.
