Artemis cursed between coughs and sneezes.
Why did she have to take Green Arrow's shift last night?
Oh that's right, she had to keep up appearances as his protégé and niece, and he had a party to attend. She rolled her eyes. Of course, to make things worse, it was mind-numbing cold last night, nearing freezing temperatures, and obviously Artemis' costume had no sleeves.
You can guess the result was not so good. She was now stuck with a cold for the next seven days, at the very least, and it didn't look like it was going to be a light one. To add to everything, instead of being able to curl up in the couch at home and watch some TV, snuggled under all the blankets she could find, Batman had called them in for a new mission, "and it is imperative the whole team attends."
Was it really that important that everyone went? Why couldn't she just skip out on this one, and let the other five handle it? It'd also make life a lot easier if she di

Part 1: Cassanova Asks For Advice
Artemis sighed. She was a superhero! She could handle any kind of shit thrown at her, but when it came down to trying to pretend that she didn't like a guy, she was terrible at it. Ever since she saw the 'Wall-man' stumble in, she had been intrigued by him. She did have a crush on him, but she was sure it was one-sided, since he only wanted to blame her for driving Roy away.
Wally cursed himself. He was the ladies man, a smooth talker, known for getting the girl, but Artemis was immune to his skills. It seemed that the only time she ever gave him the time of day was when they were arguing with each other, the rest of the time, she just ignored him. He had to admit, she had driven Roy away, but she was turning out to be quite the replacement. Ever since he had seen her, she was just continuing to attract him, even if they were always arguing.
Wally decided that he had to go out on a date wit

"Recognized. Kid Flash..."
Artemis tuned out the rest of that annoying prompt's greeting. She groaned at the fact that, from all the people to join her today, it had to be the most annoying kid on the planet, who just so happened to hate her with a passion. She at least hoped that they'd be able to avoid each other this time.
Artemis chuckled mirthlessly. Fat chance of that, she had to pick the kitchen to spread her math homework out, and study there. Like the sun rising, it was common knowledge that Wally always veered off to the kitchen the minute he entered the cave, and she was sure today was no exception.
The archer smirked as, sure enough, there was the unmistakable sound of someone approaching at a fast pace.
"You ever hear of a library?" Wally scoffed as he braked to a stop in front of the fridge, and noticed who was currently invading the kitchen space with papers.
Without looking up from her work, Artemis bit back, "You ever heard of minding yo

Part 1: Memories
How stupid could she get? She should have had more control about what she told people, even if she was suffering from an amnesia attack, she should know better than to go spilling out that her father had wanted her to kill people! Had she learned nothing during this time? She was a survivor, and survivors didn't live by going around and spilling their plans and secrets out to the world!
To add to it, the Wall Man wouldn't ease up now on why her father would want her to kill him. Such a stupid mistake, made by an even stupider teenager.
She used to remember, although she wouldn't admit it to anyone, especially Baywatch, when she watched the news, mainly since it was the only interesting thing out there, and she saw Kid Flash appear beside his mentor, the Flash. How could she have thought that anyone so annoying could be so hot! She just automatically fell for the broad shoulders and the runner's physique, completely disregarding the persona

Part 5: A Great Conversation For A First Date
Wally groaned. He seriously was terrible at these kinds of things. He saw that Artemis was walking along the beach, and he knew that something was wrong with her.
Wally reasoned that, had she hated him, and was disgusted by the kiss, she'd have slapped him, and kicked him to the next county, but her indifference, her frosty attitude could almost be interpreted as scared. It puzzled him. Heck, he knew she had kissed him back, but what worried him was the way that he didn't see her blush, or say anything, just walk off.
Wally then decided to follow the archer, even though he knew that there was a high probability he'd regret it later on.
Artemis was mentally kicking herself. Hard. How could she have gone and kissed him back? Right after she had decided that it'd be best to keep to herself. However, secretly, she just wanted to get it all to go to hell, and just at

Part 9: Make Cheers, Not Arguments!
Like Conner said, it was a battlefield, but not like any battlefield they had ever seen. It started when everyone entered the apartment.
"You, want me, to become a cheerleader! ? ! ?" Artemis fumed at the 13 year old kid. They had just settled inside after having had a very silent and tense walk back home. Everyone knew what was going on, but no one wanted to start the topic that would for sure have their new leader and the archer butting heads. No one knew who would win, it could go both ways. Sure, Robin had had training from the Dark Knight, and knew how to best plan for things, but if there was one person that they knew that it wasn't wise to cross, it was Artemis.
"Come on Artemis! It's for the team! Would it kill you that much to-" Dick saw Artemis' glare, and already knew his answer. He then smirked and tried another tactic. "Alright, fine, suit yourself. If you don't w

Part 7: Keep Your Friends Close, and Your Family Closer
After her father left, Artemis got up from where she was, and walked over to the closet. She opened the door again, and caught the attacking mops before they'd hit her. Then a voice asked "Is he gone?"
Artemis looked above her, and saw Wally, crouched on top of a shelf, teetering on the brink of falling. "Yep, he is." Artemis nodded, not having enough strength to think of something witty to reply with.
Wally jumped down from where he was perched, and tons of cracks were heard as he stretched his sore back. "I don't know how Rob does that." He then looked towards Artemis, closing the door of the closet.
"You can leave if you want." Artemis stated, walking away. "Don't leave through the front entrance though, my dad's probably still standing there."
Wally used some of his super speed to catch up to Artemis, and stand in front of her. "Hey, I'm not leaving you. I kno

Part 1: How We Say What We Say
Artemis didn't know why the speedster didn't get the idea. Everyone had something to hide, and yet, he had decided that the only one that wasn't worthy of hiding something, and that had to spill her true nature, was her. Artemis didn't see Wally pestering Robin to reveal his identity, and yet she had to explain why her father had wanted her to kill people.
This just got her blood boiling so badly. Which was why at this specific instant, she was murdering the practise target with her arrows, her eyes narrowed and her lips pursed.
Why should she even care as to what Wally wanted to know or not? Was it that deep down, she wanted him to accept her as more than a measly replacement, and that she wanted more than having to make herself heard every time he was in the vicinity in order to feel like she was worth something? Yes, she wanted acceptance, since after all, with her back

==Later, at 7
Wally was pacing around the outside of Mt. Justice, waiting for his date, and contemplating. It wasn't as if he liked Artemis, he was just trying to put her in her rightful place. Who was he kidding? He had something for the archer, and it would be a lot simpler to admit if it wasn't for the fact that having a simple conversation with her was as simple as trying to hug a porcupine and not get hurt, in other words, impossible. He tried to dress up a bit for the occasion, nothing fancy, but a dress shirt, buttoned up, and dark jeans, just to say he knew how to be mature, something she thought he was incapable of doing.
"You didn't stand me up, thanks Casanova." A voice laughed, and Wally turned to go and tell the owner of the voice to shut up- but he found himself incapable of saying anything as soon as he saw Artemis.
She was wearing a midnight blue summer dress, and it seems that she also went for some makeup, and loos

Part 3: Love Is The Hardest Thing To Admit
"GAH!" Wally sat up with a yelp, startling everyone in the vicinity.
Robin and Megan were nearest and went rushing into the room.
"Wally! You're awake!" Megan squealed, and went over to hug him.
Robin chuckled. "Why do you look like someone just hit you with a train?"
Wally shuddered. "I had the weirdest dream, that's all."
"You can tell us about it later, I'm sure the rest of the team wants to know you're awake!" Megan was ecstatic at having Wally awake, and she flew off to tell everyone else.
Robin scoffed. "Right, if they didn't hear his scream a couple of minutes ago."
"Dude!" Wally exclaimed.
Robin shrugged. "It's the truth. Anyway, what was your dream about?"
"It was weird, I was in a world without superheroes!"
Robin gaped. "For real? Must have been boring. So wait, what were we all doing?"
Wally here looked down. "You were at the circus, with your paren
