A/N: I'm sorry for not posting faster. It's been a helluva week. :D But I'm starting to recover. Thanks for everyone who has reviewed. I do read them, and they do keep me writing. I'll try to post faster. XD
The fourth time Wally ran through the kitchen, he was carrying a little boy in his arms. The young boy was crying and Wally looked a little scared, but he was trying his best to comfort the little boy.
"Shush…It's going to be ok Impulse," Wally cooed. Robin raised an eyebrow and Wally smiled sheepishly.
"He's my little cousin, but he's got a big backstory," Wally answered, "I'll explain later." He mumbled when he see Robin won't relent in being left out of the loop.
"Wally," Bart cried, "I'm sorry. I thought Aunt Iris's cup was mine. It looked exactly like mine." Wally raised an eyebrow at Bart's lie.
"Ok so I knew it was Aunt Iris's cup, but I thought caffeine wasn't harmful, at least that's what the Encyclopedia Britannica said," Bart explained through his tears. Wally laughed under his breathe. The kid had read through two sets of encyclopedias from the library, and Wally was running out of books to let him read.
"Bart you can't just try out everything you read about. Sometimes experiments can run differently for everyone."
"You mean like how Uncle Barry ran up the stairs and was able to open the door at superspeed, and then you tried it but you couldn't get the door to open, so you ended up-mmph."
"Bart, stop talking now," Wally muttered. Bart looked confused, but Wally just smiled at him. The kid doesn't know when to shut his mouth, but then again, he wouldn't be Bart if he knew.
"Hey who are you?" Bart asked noticing Red Robin for the first time.
"Red Robin," Tim replied.
"Never heard of you before."
"I like to keep myself hidden," Tim smirked, "It's what I was taught."
"Cool," Bart murmured. Wally sighed. Great, they're friends, now Bart would never come back home with him.
"KF? Can we talk in private?" Robin hissed at Wally with a glare on his face.
"Uh…am I gonna get hurt?" Wally hesitated. Robin grabbed his arm and pulled him out of the kitchen and out of earshot of the rest of the team.
"You never told me you had a little cousin. How are Barry and Iris grandparents? Where did Bart come from?" Robin asked.
"Whoa, whoa. One at a time, Rob, I may be a speedster, but even I'm not that fast," Wally joked trying to soothe his best friend. Robin exhales slowly, and smiles at his friend expressing that he's calming down.
"Bart's from the future, wait until I'm done to ask questions," Wally explains, "Bart's from the future, and apparently he's Barry and Iris's grandson. In the future, Bart had a superfast metabolism and it was making him age faster than normal. Aunt Iris from the future kidnapped him to take him back in time to us, so we could help him. I got the idea of running him to exhaustion because it could use up all the hormones and kind of kick his metabolism into running normally, so Barry and I did that, but it was mostly me because we left Barry back at like Mach 6, so here we are now."
"You're a horrible storyteller."
"You didn't ask for a story."
"Yeah, well so what about this time travel stuff, isn't it dangerous?"
"Oh don't even get me started on that. You have no idea how confused Barry and I got trying to come up with a conclusion on how Bart staying here could destroy the universe, but Future Iris just dropped Bart off and left, she had to go back to the future because there couldn't be two Irises at the same moment of time."
"Oh," Robin states simply. It was a bit overwhelming. He couldn't imagine how Wally must feel right now.
"Oh, that's it?" Wally responded.
"Well how are you feeling right now?" Robin tossed back.
"I don't know, dude. I feel like Barry wants to take Bart on as another sidekick, but I don't think Bart's ready. I mean you've seen how impulsive the kid is, and I don't think Bart and I understand each other too well," Wally choked.
"Wally, you've met all my little brothers. You're like a big brother to them, so you have to be a big brother to Bart, too. I'll help you with the understanding thing," Robin replied, "About replacing you, it's about time." Wally glared.
"Just kidding, dude. Barry could never replace you," Robin grinned.
"You think?" Wally asked hopefully.
"Of course, he would miss your ginger-like attributes too much," Robin added with his sneaky little laugh as he walked back to the kitchen.
"Dude!" Wally exclaimed with a smile on his face. Wally laughed and followed Robin back into the kitchen. However, when they got there, the children were gone. Artemis had a look of amusement on her face, Kaldur looked (as he always did) pensive about something intense, and M'gann looked glum.
"Where's Red Robin and Impulse?" Robin asked worriedly.
"Don't worry, Boy Wonder. They're fine. They're with Connor," Artemis was the one to answer. "I think they might like him, especially Tim."
"What are you talking about?"
"Well let's just say I don't think anyone else has been able to get Superboy to smile."
A/N: I've already got an idea for the next chapter. MORE SUPERBOY! Only because his character hasn't been explored fully yet, and I can't wait til Young Justice comes off hiatus. There have been too many hiatuses, and I'm afraid fans are going to get tired, and stop watching and then the producers won't have enough viewers to keep the show going...wow the business of cartoons is intense. Oh..yeah so keep reading, writing, or whatever you do on here, until next time~~~
