The night air is cold. I sit on the ledge of city hall, watching the people walk in and out of the জনপ্রিয় building. No one notices me, for I am cloathed in the darkness. I pull out the small, wrinkled piece of paper from my pocket. Happy Harbour, they'll help you. I clench the paper in my fist and shove it back in my pocket.
"Vanessa." I whisper, moving away from the ledge. "I'm over here." উত্তর her voice. I সরানো towards the sound and find her huddling on the ground. "Are আপনি cold?" I ask, sitting পরবর্তি to her. "Just a bit, Danielle." she responds. "We have to keep moving, we're almost there." I say. "And what happens once we get there?" Vanessa asked, standing up. I look up at her. "We tell them about the League of Shadows. And the uprising against Sportsmaster, and the invasion plans." She crossed her arms. "And what makes আপনি think they'll believe us?" I shrugged. "Don't know, but my gut tells me they will." The silence grows and I hope to my feet. I look at the city from where I stand and whisper, "Let's move."
--At the Cave--
"I win!" exclaimed Wally West, pointing his fingers in Artemis Crock's face. "No way, আপনি cheated!" she snapped. Wally raised an eyebrow. "Someone's a sore loser." he ব্যক্ত smoothly. "Wally, the only thing that's going to be sore is your গাধা when I beat it." Artemis ব্যক্ত standing up. "I knew আপনি always wanted me Artie." Artemis narrowed her eyes and seethed, "Don't call me Artie." A groan caused both of them to look over at the person who voiced it. "Would আপনি two just চুম্বন and go out already?" snapped Dick Grayson. "We're all getting sick of your I-hate-you bullshit!" Conner Kent nodded. "It's obvious you're into each other! Seriously, go make some sexy babies."
Artemis's face looked like a tomato. "I'm going out." she said, and walked out of the Cave. "Well, I think that went well." Wally ব্যক্ত carelessly. "Wally, you're an idiot." Dick said. He threw up his hands. "Woah, calm down there bird boy. Sorry things didn't work out with Zatanna, but no need for আপনি to be on my case!" Dick's eyes clouded with anger and hurt. He silently got up, took his computer, and soon the slamming of his door echoed through the Cave. "I think I'll get something to-"
Suddenly, a scream interrupted his sentence, and Wally jumped up. "That's Artemis!" Conner gave him a sarcastic glance. "No really?" And they both bolted outside.
--Outside the Cave--
"Who are you?" Artemis yelled, her bow in hand. "Please, please don't hurt us, we came such a long way! My name is Danielle Crock, and this is my sister Vanessa!" Wally and Conner skidded to a halt. "Did আপনি just say Crock?" Artemis, him, and Conner ব্যক্ত in sync. "Yes! Yes that's who-- oh my god..." Danielle trailed. "Dani?" Artemis asked, with a scared smile on her face. "Artie!" Danielle flew over to Artemis and hugged her tightly. Wally glanced at Artemis. She was crying. She does cry... and those are happy tears, he thought to himself. "Where have আপনি two been?!" The archer exclaimed, taking Vanessa into her arms. "We escaped from father only recently." Then it hit her. "Oh! Please, we need your help!" Wally spread his hands. "Hello! Introduce yourself to the Speedster!" Artemis turned around and slapped Wally across the face. "Wally, shut up. I don't care if আপনি flirt with my sisters, but do it after I'm done talking to them instead of proving you're a player!" Wally rubbed his cheek and Conner held in a laugh. "What's wrong?" Artemis asked, turning her attention back to her sisters. "The League of Shadows is reforming." Vanessa ব্যক্ত quietly. "And they are going to revolt against Sportsmaster. They have plans to invade our planet with two different alien species." Artemis raised her eyes to the sky. "Let's go inside."
