Batingency Plans


It was your average day at the cave, Robin playing on his laptop, Connor watching No Signal, M'gann cooking in the kitchen, Kaldur reading, Artemis working on arrows, and Wally being Wally.

Currently, he was in the kitchen attempting to flirt with M'gann. "Hey there, sugar. Are those cookies as sweet as you?"

M'gann mentally sighed. When would he give up? "Well, I did put a lot of sugar in them."

But Wally wouldn't stop, he started in on the most lame pick up lines anyone had heard.

"Baby I'm like milk, I'll do your body good."

M'gann decided to start ignoring him after this. She really didn't know what to say, but Wally continued.

"Are you from Tennessee? Because you're the only ten I see!"

Still no response.

"Do you know CPR, 'cause you take my breath away."


"Are you a parking ticket, 'cause you've got fine written all over you."

M'gann looked at her cookies in the oven. They were almost done, they were a light brown on the top.

"If I had eleven roses and you, I'd have a dozen."

That's when the oven started smoking.

"Oh no! My cookies!"

She mentally pulled them out of the oven, the charred black lumps sizzling slightly.

"And they were fine just a minute ago! They were just turning brown!"

The Team gathered around to look at the cookies. Even Wally wouldn't touch them. Robin put his hand up to his ear and called Batman. "Batingency Plan 14."

A few minutes later, the Zeta beam announced the arrival of someone at the cave.

"Recognized: Agent A A-01."

In walked an older man wearing a suit and a domino mask. He carried a brown grocery bag with him, sticking out of the top they could see a carton of eggs.

"Hello, Master Robin. Where's the kitchen?"

Robin pointed him in the direction of the kitchen, and whispered to the old man, "Can you teach M'gann how to make your cookies? She really needs help."

The man nodded his agreement, took the green skinned girl with him, and went to the kitchen. The Team wondered who the strange man was.

"Who's that, Robin?" asked Artemis.

"That's Agent A, the secret member of the Bat clan."

"Wait, if Agent A's here, please tell me he's making his famous cookies," Wally practically drooled.

"Yep. That's Batingency Plan 14. But don't tell Batman I told you that."

"Batingency Plan 14?"

"Batman has a plan for everything that can and will happen. One of the plans is in case of a cookie crisis. That's when we call Agent A in. He makes the most amazing cookies you'll ever eat."

The team resumed whatever they had been doing before M'gann had once again burnt her cookies, only this time Wally was trying to convince Connor to play video games with him.

Half an hour later, they team slowly wandered to the kitchen as the smell of baking cookies flooded the Mountain. In the kitchen, Agent A was pulling a tray of chocolate chip cookies out of the oven.

"And that is how they should look when you take them out. If you leave them in longer, they will be overcooked and eventually catch on fire."

"Thanks A! You're the greatest!"

"Then I believe my work here is done. Master Robin, please try to be home by six, I've got a roast in and I don't think you or Master Batman will want it to be too done."

"Thanks Agent A, I'll make sure to be there."

The Boy Wonder then ran up to the man and gave him a hug, startling his teammates, and the man left. Then the team turned to the tray of cookies lying on the stove. They each took one, even though Wally tried to take more, and they simultaneously took a bite of the cookies.

It was like heaven in their mouths, the rich chocolate was warm and slightly melted, they could clearly taste the vanilla undertones. It was perfection.

And to think, they could have been stuck with M'gann's burnt cookies. Good thing there were Batingency Plans.

So, I decided to post this story, late at night, instead of going to bed. Oh, well. Hope y'all enjoy this.

Have a stellar day/night/whatever,
