It had been almost three years since Darkseid's final invasion. The Justice League continued on and thrived. But at the moment John Stewart was facing something much worse than a super villain, Mari. They were at out for dinner, to celebrate the success of her latest fashion show. He must have said something wrong, he didn't even know what it was anymore, but it caused her to go off on a rant.

"We have been together for over three and a half years John, and we don't even live together," Mari tried to keep her voice down.

"You know why that can't happen." John stated flatly.

"Because your power source is in your apartment"

"And you need to be in New York," John completed her sentence.

She sighed, frustrated.

"I want to know if our relationship is going anywhere. Or are we going to continue on like this for another three years."

"Mari," John started.

"I want to get married John," Mari slammed a fist down onto the table.

John was shocked, speechless.

"I want to get married, and in a few years have kids," Mari paused, "John how would we do that when we can't even live in the same city."

"I don't know," John admitted.

"Are you even going to put up a fight?" Mari asked.

"What would you like me to do?" John whispered aggravated, "Give up my apartment and move into your loft in New York."

Mari met his eyes and then looked away.

"Even if I moved in, every few days you're off to Paris, or L.A."

"Or you're on a mission in outer space," Mari retorted.

Neither of them knew where to go from there. The silence ate away at the two of them until one of them finally burst.

"What I'm trying to say is that I want a future with you, but I can't go through another three years of waiting for you to take another step." Mari placed her hand on John's.

John withdrew his hand and Mari nodded. She stood up from the table and kissed his forehead.

"Good luck," she whispered to him before she left the restaurant, and his life for good.
