Author's Note: This is for the "The Sugar Sweet Challenge" located on the "Young Justice FanFiction Challenges" Forum. My prompt was Cupcakes (I HATE Cupcakes, but I deal with it -evil grin-).
Wally sat on the kitchen counter eating his third tray of M'gann's burnt cupcakes. They didn't even look like cupcakes; they looked more lumps of coal covered in pink frosting. Even though they tasted as bad as looked Wally just kept on eating, and waiting for the next - and last - tray of them to leave the oven. M'gann had left for more training with Black Canary so Wally was alone in the small base kitchen.
"What are you eating?" Robin asked in disgust as he entered the kitchen.
"Up-akes," Wally said through the four 'cupcakes' he had stuffed in his mouth.
"You're eating stomach aches?" Robin asked not sure if heard the red head right.
Wally swallowed hard, "No, not stomach aches. You can't eat those can you? I'm eating cupcakes!"
Robin raised an eyebrow and looked worriedly at the said food, "Those don't look like..."
"I know, I know!" Wally said taking another, "but ya'know, high metabolism."
Robin shook his head and headed towards the fridge. Wally could hear a faint mutter, "you and your damn 'metabolism'."
'I'll show you metabolism,' Wally thought, realizing his joke didn't make sense he didn't say it out loud.
He picked up another cupcake and chucked it at the back of the Boy Wonder's head. It bounced off with a thump and landed on the floor. It left a pink clump of frosting in the young teen's jet black hair. Robin slowly stood up straight and turned to face Wally. Even through the heavily tinted shades Wally could still feel the narrowed, furious death glare that was boring into him. Without any hesitation, without even turning to the fridge, Robin yanked out a tub of cottage cheese and threw it violently at Wally. Wally avoided it with ease.
"Come on Rob. You can do better than that," Wally smirked from the other side of the room.
"Oh believe me," Robin said taking a few steps to the left, "I can."
It took a moment before Wally realized what Robin was doing. Robin opened the oven door and pulled out the steaming hot, burnt to a crisp cupcakes.
"Rob-" Wally began but a cupcake had hit him smack in the middle of his face, giving him a bloody nose. "Hey!"
Robin just laughed as he continued to throw the clumps of burnt food at his best friend. Wally ran to dodge - he tried to snatch the tray out of Robin's hands but kept forgetting to watch his feet.
Wally came up, running, ready to take the tray which only had four left, when once again he did not watch his feet. Robin stuck his ankle out and tripped the speedster, causing him to grab hold of Robin for support. He ended up dragged the boy down with him causing the tray and the last cupcakes to go flying into the air. A slam was heard, and then followed by the intense muttering of anger. Superboy had just came into the kitchen to see what the commotion was all about, and just as he walked in he was greeted with a muffin tin to the face.
"Hey Supes," Wally said with a shaky laugh "you got something on your face."
Superboy was trembling with rage as he wiped the large crumbs off his face.
"Five seconds," Superboy growled.
"Yeah," Wally laughed shakily again, "come on Robin."
Wally grabbed Robin by the arm and bolted out of there, with Superboy pounding after them.
"Waaaaalllllly!" Robin yelled. He was still dangling behind the boy, flopping all over the place. He was desperately trying to hold his shades in place.
"I know, I know!" Wally called back. He made a quick turn and opened one of closets and shoved them both inside. Robin opened his mouth but Wally covered his mouth with his hand.
The thumping of Superboy was getting louder and louder as he made his way down the hall. The boys held their breath, so it would not be picked up by his super-hearing. The thumping got louder, then stopped. Sweat trickled down the boys temples, as they could see his shadow from under the crack in the door. Superboy then continued his way down the hall, the thumping getting quieter and quieter, then gone.
Robin shoved his best friend's hand off of his mouth, "This is all you and your stupid metabolism's fault."
"How is it it's fault?" Wally inquired.
"You're right, it can't be your metabolism's fault," Robin said sarcastically, "It's your fault for chucking that rock at my head!"
"First of all, it wasn't a rock," Wally said, "second, you shouldn't have been-"
"Oh will you two shut up and come out of the closet already?" Superboy's voice called as he opened the door. The two boys slowly got out of the closet and stared blankly at Superboy. "Don't ever do that again." he growled getting all up in Wally's face. He stormed off down the hall. The Wally and Robin just stood there silently until they were sure that Superboy could not hear them anymore.
"He didn't mean-"
"He wouldn't have known-"
"He meant it literally right?"
"Yeah," Wally said, "he wouldn't have known what that meant."
"Ok," Robin agreed and they just stood there, awkwardly, "I'm... going to go... wash this frosting out of my hair."
"Ok," Wally said just as awkwardly, "I'm going to... eat more cupcakes."
The two then brush past each other and down in the opposite directions. Neither of them could help my laugh to themselves. Laugh about Superboy's anger and language, their food fight, or Wally's stupid high metabolism.
After I wrote it I realized that the instructions said it did not have to be fluffy. xD Which is just a HUGE sigh of relief.
Kid Flash is refereed as Wally because he is in his civilian clothes. Robin is too but they do not know his Secret ID.
For all of you who have seen Teen Titans and the latest Young Justice episode: Doesn't Artemis remind you of Terra?
Reviews = Muffins finally conquering the Cupcakes in the great battle of Pie Tin! :D (Don't ask...)
