"Do you remember when we first met?"

Donna Troy looked across her kitchen island into the living room. "Of course," she dug the ice cream scoop into the carton of mint chocolate chip. "We were trying to save a bunch of teenagers from their mean parents. We were such dorks."

Dick looked offended as he walked behind her to retrieve two spoons. "We were not."

She raised an eyebrow at him while handing over his bowl. "Whatever you say, Robin-Bobbin."

"Ugh," he winced to accompany the groan. "Okay, Wonder Doll, I guess you're right. We were total dorks."

"And yet, everyone thought we were the coolest things since sliced bread," Donna plopped on the couch next to him, bringing her spoon to her mouth to savor the sweet treat.

"Hey, we did a lot of great things," he protested, waving his spoon in the air. "Defeated a lot of villains."

She nodded with mock serious. "Oh, yeah. Mad Mod, Ding Dong Daddy, Gargoyle? The lake monster?"

"I recall you having a slight obsession with Mad Mod…"

"Every crack about Mad Mod is officially rescinded," she bit her lip sheepishly. "Let's never bring that up again, okay?"

He grinned, holding up his hands in surrender. "Truce." Chuckling lightly, he added, "Wally had the biggest crush on you."

A pillow slammed into his head. "I thought we weren't talking about embarrassing things anymore!"

"It's not embarrassing to you, it's embarrassing to Wally!" he protested, taking the pillow from her and sticking his tongue out. "He was so bad at flirting with you."

"By Hera, he was!" she agreed, burying her face in her hands. "It always annoyed me."

"You never had trouble turning him down," Dick remarked, putting his empty ice cream bowl on the top of the glass coffee table. "Of course, you never turned Roy down at all."

She crossed her arms over her chest, a blush rising on her face. "I was fourteen and lived on an island full of women. Plus, even then Roy was learning from Ollie."

His arm wrapped around her shoulders. "I know, I'm just teasing you."

Donna leaned against him, in a way that was second nature to breathing. "Everything's changed now. Back then, it was all so simple."

He stroked her arm lightly, "Not everything's changed."

"That's right," she smiled up at him. "I've got you."

"And I've got you back," Dick pulled her close, resting his chin on the top of her head.

Her hand found one of his, squeezing it comfortingly. "I won't leave you again, Dick. I promise you that."

"I know." He sighed lightly. "It's a new world out there."

"A new beginning," she agreed, moving closer to him.

"Right…" Gently, he kissed her temple, thinking that it could be a new beginning for the two of them.
