A bit later, Babs is getting ready to settle in for the night when her cell rings.

The story begins with Batman brooding in the Cave, remembering Damian. Alfred is trying to console him. An alarm rings, someone is digging up Damian's corpse. Batman charges out to the graveyard like a, well a bat out of Hell. He sees the desecrators of the grave are members of Talia's League of Assassins, led by Ubu.

Nightwing slowly got to his shaky feet, the pain from the shock still evident in his facial features. He looked to see Conner still on the ground, he ran as fast as his wobbly legs let him, stumbling as he went. Kneeling down, he began to shake Conner. "Come on Supy, you have to wake up!" he desperately said, he deactivated Conner's collar, and his own as he tried to rouse Conner. He knew that the whole 'I let go of this button you all die' was a hoax, but he didn't doubt that Kaldur would actually blow up the Mountain. After all, Kaldur was a double agent; he needed to keep up an appearance.
He needed to get Conner out of here, he wouldn't leave anyone behind. Running towards the entertainment room he quickly saw Sphere and Wolf; both were looking at Nightwing oddly Nightwing ran over and deactivated Wolf's collar. "Sphere, Wolf, come on hurry!" he didn't know if either could understand him, but he had to risk it. He started going back
No Words NeededIt was Friday afternoon and the cave was eerily quiet.No Words Needed2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Practically no one was around. Conner, Megan, and Kaldur were off on a special off world mission, meaning the cave was currently empty.
All except for a certain speedster.
In one of the many restrooms present in the cave, Wally West was standing in front of a mirror staring at his own reflection.
Sad green eyes stared back at him as his gaze shifted to the large purple bruise that was currently forming on his right cheek. He gently ran his fingers over the purple spot and winced when he felt a familiar sense of pain flow through his body.
He looked up at his reflection once more as his grip on the sink tightened. His eyes began to water as he thought about the reason behind the bruise.
His dad had hit him.
Yeah, he had been pushed around before but never had his dad physically hit him.
It hurt to think about it.
Wally was too busy with his thoughts to notice that somebody else had entered the room. By the time he realized he was no
Earth to Zatanna"Ok girl spill." Artemis instructed her best friend with her hands on her hips, grey eyes staring intently into her blue. Zatanna looked at her with mocking confusion that clearly read: who me? "Everyone could tell Wally was going to kiss me, but you and Robin. Where did that come from?" the frustrated blonde demanded.Earth to Zatanna2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Zatanna smiled slightly, "Well he's just so cute, and he was there for me when Fate took over dad." She looked at her friend, who was half glaring at her, "Well besides you and the rest of the team but with him it was different." She amended quickly. Still the blonde was not satisfied with the answer. "I like him ok!" Zatanna nearly shouted.
Finally the blonde smiled, "That's all I needed to hear, catch ya later, I have a date with Wally. Don't want to be late, he is a speedster." The blonde winked at her friend as she flipped her hair over her shoulder and turned to walk out of the room. As soon as Artemis had left the room Zatanna heard a voice in the back part of the
