I Won't See You Tonight Part 2
"Daughter, you take the Flash Boy. The Boy Wonder is mine."
Immediately, Talia charged at Kid Flash, a machete in her hand.
Even at his speed he barely had a chance to dodge her attacks.
Kid Flash kept glancing at Robin. He knew Ra's was well above his little bird's level… and if he's not careful…
No… don't go there… Dick will be fine…
He just had to finish with Talia… then he could help Robin.
He decided to just end this quickly. The sooner he finished with Talia, the sooner he could help Robin.
He started to run around Talia. He continued to gain speed until she passed out from the lack of air.
Great. He managed to stop Talia…
Now he just had to help Robin.
He sped over to his little bird.
Holy shit… for an old man, Ra's is a damn good fighter.
Robin was having trouble keeping up with every attack that Ra's threw at him. He was pretty sure that he had a couple ribs that were cracked, or possibly broken.
The second he sees Kid Flash, he was about to sigh of relief… until he saw a smirk on Ra's face.
Robin sees Ra's reach for his knife.
And Kid Flash is running at full speed towards them.
He only had a split second to think.
"KF! Stop!" Robin yelled.
Kid Flash skidded to a stop with a confused look on his face.
Before he has a chance to explain, Robin feels a sudden, sharp pain in his side.
Seconds later, he sees the knife sticking out of his side.
Kid Flash runs past Robin, and punches Ra's in the face.
"You son of a bitch!" he yells. The force from the punch is enough to knock Ra's unconscious.
He resists the urge to beat Ra's into a bloody pulp to see if Robin was okay.
The younger of the two had removed the knife from his side, but he was bleeding copiously. His breathing was labored, and he was having a hard time staying awake.
"W-wally…" he said, his voice just above a whisper.
"Shhh… don't talk Dick." Wally said, "You need to save your strength."
Robin coughed. Blood trailed down from the corners of his mouth.
Robin lifted up a hand to remove his mask, revealing two dark blue eyes.
Dark blue eyes that were slowly losing their life.
A small pool of blood was starting to form, getting Wally's uniform sticky from the dark red element.
But he didn't care about that. He was too focused on the dying boy in his arms.
"Stay with me." Wally pleaded, "Please… don't go…"
Dick coughed again. The bird took Wally's hand in his own.
Wally held the boy closer. "No… don't give up. Not now. I need you."
Dick tightened his grip on Wally's hand.
"Wally… I love you." He said.
Wally was close to tears. It was obvious that nobody would be able to do anything to save him. Even at his top speed, Wally wouldn't be able to get Dick to the nearest hospital before he died.
"I love you too, Dick." He said softly.
He leaned down to kiss his little bird for the last time.
Everyone mourned the loss of their favourite little bird.
The team tried to console Wally… but it didn't help.
What he wanted was to have Dick there with him, by his side.
He wanted him to say that everything would be fine, that everything was alright.
But he knew it wouldn't happen.
He understood how Dick felt after losing his parents. He finally was able to relate to him.
But now, he couldn't help Dick through that pain anymore.
He went to the cemetery every day to talk to him.
Wally would tell stories about the team, from what stupid stunt he pulled to the shitty day he had at school.
It made him feel a little better… but it didn't ease the guilt.
Even now, after five years, he wished it was a bad dream.
He wished that he could just wake up and see Dick's dark blue eyes, full of life, and that comforting smile on his face.
He wished he could still hold him close, hear his voice, and kiss him.
Wally looked at his favorite picture of Dick… the one from their first date years ago.
Looking at that picture brings good and bad memories alike… good more than bad.
I'll never stop loving you, Dick…
Just as he was about to leave to visit Dick's grave, his cell rang.
"Wally, you're needed for an important mission." Superboy said.
"Alright. I'll be there." Wally said, before hanging up the phone.
Looks like I won't be seeing you tonight… but I promise I'll make it up to you, Dick.
A/N: I know. I'm a terrible person.
