And the final chapter! It's finished!
But because it took soooo long, some of you probably realized that my writing has improved a bit since the first chapters (if I do say so myself ;))
So I'm planning to maybe rewrite the first chapters.
But for now, thanks for all the favs and reviews!
"Damian!" Dick yelled upstairs.
Next to him Tim chuckled.
"What?" he asked the teen raising his eyebrows.
Tim shrugged, "Nothing." He answered with an innocent smile on his face.
"You're scaring me again, Tim. Why are you laughing this time?" Dick asked again worriedly.
"I'm just imagining what Damian's reaction is going to be, when you tell him the good news."
Dick shuddered. "That's why I asked you as my backup." Then he turned towards the stair again.
"Damian!" he yelled again.
"What do you want, Grayson?" came the boy's voice from upstairs.
"Can you come down for a moment? I want to talk to you about something."
Tim laughed again, "Still haven't learned from your mistakes I see."
It seemed like Damian also thought he was in trouble again, because all the way down to the living room he was muttering.
"Talk." He ordered when he was standing face to face with Dick.
"Well…" Dick started, "You've been going to school for a week now, but.."
Damian was impatiently tapping his foot on the floor, "But what?"
"How can I say this?" Dick frowned.
Behind him Tim was trying not to laugh and failing miserably.
"Cut to the chase, Grayson." Damian said while giving Tim an angry glare.
"They don't want to see you back at Gotham Academy ever again." Dick said quickly
It stayed silent for a moment, until Tim couldn't control his laughter anymore.
"Fine." Damian said, "I don't have to go to school. I'm smarter than you two morons together. Stop laughing Drake or I'll show you what I showed the kid yesterday."
"From now on I want you to give your schoolwork to Alfred again." Dick told him.
"So much for the social skills" Tim hiccupped and received another glare.
"But I don't need the stupid schoolwork." Damian protested.
"It's not up for debate. You're starting Monday. Now go brush your teeth and go to your room. I'll be there in a few minutes." Dick said with his most stern expression.
"Tt!" was the only response he got from Damian but the boy did listen and walked out of the room with a hanging head.
Then Dick turned around to Tim who was still laughing and hiccupping.
"You've had a long day today too, so go upstairs." He said to him while pointing to the door.
"Alright, boss." Tim answered still chuckling and walked to the door, but before he left he turned around again,
"He took it better than I expected." He grinned at Dick.
"Yeah, and I'm glad I don't have to deal with that principal anymore." He sighed and pinched the bridge of his nose...
