Chapter 1: Kidnappers (Astute)
"No!" shouted nine-year-old Dick Grayson.
"Yes!" shouted thirteen-year-old Roy Harper.
"No!" shouted Dick.
"Yes!" shouted fourteen-year-old Barbara Gordon.
Instead of answering, Barbara just rubbed her temples as Roy continued to literally drag Dick towards the small white building.
"No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! Noooooooo!"
"Give it a rest already!" responded Roy, "We don't like this either, but everyone has to go to the dentist at some point!"
"He's right, you know," added an exasperated Barbara. She and Roy were rarely in the same place, but they got along very well when they were due to their mutual "younger brother": Dick Grayson.
Said child was still struggling madly to get out of Roy's grip.
"No! No! No! No! No!"
They were almost to the door, and both teens were about to release a relieved sigh when Dick's face turned from panicked to evil.
"KIDNAPPERS! SOMEBODY HELP ME! I WANT MY MOMMY!"
Now, every adult in the vicinity turned to the screaming little boy.
The teenagers did look pretty suspect. Roy was now covering Dick's mouth in an attempt to stop the screams, and Barbara was standing in front of them, trying in vain to block everyone's view.
Then, Dick started crying and everyone regarded Roy and Barbara with hostility. A policeman started to walk over.
Barbara put on her best smile and said, "We're not kidnapping him! Honest! We're just taking him to see the dentist!"
"I'm sorry, young lady, but I'll need you three to come downtown with me."
However, before Barbara could protest (which she would have done, being the commissioner's daughter), someone started yelling, and it wasn't Dick.
The two turned to see an elderly woman repeatedly hitting Roy with her purse.
"You leave that little boy alone!"
"Augh! Ouch! Lady, we're not kidnappers! Ow!"
Barbara would have laughed if Roy's distress was not so evident. Instead, she rushed over to stand between him and the provoked senior citizen.
"Miss, we're not kidnappers. This boy is-"
She didn't get to finish due to the mace suddenly being sprayed into her eyes.
Barbara screamed, and when Roy tried to help her, he also got a face-full of the offensive substance.
Dick watched on as the two redheads lay writhing on the ground, trying to control his laughter.
He quickly gave up however, and began giggling uncontrollably.
Roy stood up, glaring at Dick through bloodshot eyes.
"I'm going to kill you, you little-"
"I said leave the boy alone!" yelled the same woman, hitting Roy even harder.
"Augh! Come on! We're not murderers either! No, not the face! AH!"
My little cousin did this once.
I know it's short, but there's more to come!
