Hey guys! This is my first pairing fic! I hope it turns out okay. I'm absolutely in love with Young Justice and Wally/Artemis! Spitfire pair! Hellooooooo… Anyway this story takes place about 5 years after the YJ team broke up. Wally and Artemis had started dating towards the end of the YJ team for a little bit, after the team broke up, so did they.
Disclaimer: I do not own Young Justice. Otherwise we would not being waiting this long for more episodes… :/
"Welcome to Central City!" The overly peppy tour guide shouted to the small group of tourists. "Home to the famous super hero speedster, The Flash. " A couple of people let out "whoops" and "Awww Yeahhhs."
Artemis adjusted her backpack straps as she hurried up to catch the group. She wasn't even sure why she was here after all this time. It's not like they were together anymore. Heck, she might not even see him today. Why in the world would he show up for a tour group any way? He was probably busy. He probably even moved on. Why on earth would he wait around for her? He was The Flash; he wasn't known for being patient. She sighed.
Truth was, she missed him. Yep, Artemis Crock just admitted to herself that actually missed Wally West, even though she hadn't seen him for 5 years. She'd been gone for 5 years. She had just gotten back to Gotham a couple of weeks ago. It was her first real break in since the team split up. Robin had gone on to do some solo stuff as Nightwing. M'gann had gone to join her uncle at the WatchTower. Superboy was off doing super things, but rumor had it that M'gann and Conner were still dating. Kaldur had returned to Atlantis to finish off some of his sorcery lessons. And Wally had stepped up to fill in the shoes of his uncle as the Flash.
Artemis felt horrible about not being there for him when his uncle died. But it wouldn't have been safe if she came back for him then. Not that he couldn't take care of himself, but she wasn't willing to draw attention to him from her enemies. After leaving Young Justice, she had gone a mission to take care of her father, Sportsmaster. He had disappeared after brutally losing a fight with the Young Justice team. He had tried to blown her cover, but the team already knew she was a double agent. Sportsmaster lost any leverage he thought he had on the fight, and barely escaped. Artemis didn't kill him when she finally confronted him, she was tired of being "Daddy's little girl" and ended up just turning him into the League.
Now she was finally done and in Central City, looking for the new Flash. The tour guide kept rambling on about the city, spewing useless facts about the city, great places to eat, the wonderful parks, yada yada yada.
The tour was just about wrapping up when there was suddenly a loud explosion from across the street at the Central City Bank. Tourists and other people on the streets screamed and ran for cover as the robbers brought out guns. Artemis ducked into a nearby ally way and took out her bow and some arrows from her backpack. She turned around to face the bank.
Suddenly, one guy from behind a car suddenly shouts "Hey it's the Flash!"
A loud fan girl scream erupted from a window as the peppy tour guide shouted. "Oh myyyyy Goddddd! It's the Flash! I just love him!"
Artemis bristled as jealousy coursed through her veins, but she shook it off and notched an arrow at one of the robbers.
Suddenly there was a blur of red as the robbers were disarmed. "Really, robbing a bank? Isn't that a little too cliché?" said the Flash, giving the obvious leader an all too familiar smirk.
"What makes you think it's the money I want?" He said and waved his hand at his henchmen who was on the roof of the bank, and about to drop a 7 year old boy.
Flash raced up to knock out the henchman and grab the boy bring him to safety across the street. He turned to face the other robbers but felt sharp pains in his chest, looking down to notice darts. He looked up to see the leader waving around a pistol. " Deadly Poison from the spiders from deep in the African jungles. You won't die, but it's enough to slow even the great Flash down." He smirked as the Flash ran to take out the leader and his gun. Much to everyone's shock, the poison was actually working to slow him down to normal speed. The other goonies ran to jump the Flash as he went for the leader. He started to fight them off, but he was growing weaker by the second.
The crowd gasped and some even cried as the leader took out a classic switch blade and walked to the struggling speedster. "Say goodnight, Flash."
Suddenly an arrow pinned the leader's arm to the wall. "What the-?" A flurry of arrows sprayed around the goons pinning them against the sidewalk and walls. The Flash blinked as he had a flashback of being crushed by Amazo until a lone arrow caused Amazo to density shift and release him. He threw off the rest of goons and rounded them up as his rapid healing abilities kicked in. He walked to where the boss still struggled against the arrow and took the pistol "I think I'll hold on to this." He tied him up and handed him and the rest of his cronies to the police as the crowd cheered.
He waved and smiled at the crowd as they came out from their hiding places to cheer for him. Then out of the corner of his eye he saw a flash of blonde hair down an alleyway.
Artemis rounded up her backpack and took off down the alleyway. She didn't know why she didn't stay. She just saw him and a part of her freaked out. "Okay maybe I'm not ready for this." She muttered as she continued to turn down alleyways and jump fences. She looked around before stopping and sitting against a building. She closed her eyes and tried to catch her breath.
She felt an abrupt breeze, and knew she wasn't alone.
She opened her eyes. Her dark grey meeting bright green ones.
A/N: I'm still unsure how I feel about this story. I've been wanting to do a WallArt story, but I don't know if it turned out to be a good one….Basically, I know I suck at writing action scenes, so if you have any advice please feel free to give it out. I was thinking about adding a couple chapters, but I'll probably only do it if I get reviews or if people like it… Mostly because I didn't get any reviews on my other story…. . . -.- Also, no flames please.
