Part 3/3 THE END!
I know this one took longer, sorry. NaNoWriMo project took over, but I managed to squeeze this last chapter in. Thank you all so much for reading and reviewing, and while this is the end of this particular story, I promise that I will be posting more fluff and angst with these characters in the future.
So please, take a second and review if you have a chance, because it does really help keep me going.
Being the Boy Wonder had taught Robin a lot of things. If a villain tosses something at you, hold your breath and run. If you find yourself in the middle of the air, tuck and prepare to roll.
And if you wake up and you're not sure where you are, don't let on that you're awake an assess your situation.
So when he woke up, feeling warm, and his arm tingling he kept his eyes closed.
Zeta beam malfunction. Wally. Snow. Cabin. Wally.
He opened his eyes to find himself on top of his best friend, his head rested on his shoulder and his leg hooked around the redhead's legs, holding him very close.
Which was causing a, uhm, rising situation.
He might not be a speedster, but Robin could be fast. He could also be graceful, but not today.
Only up for a moment before his legs entangled with Wally tripped and he fell again, this time landing across Wally's stomach, shocking him awake as well.
"OW! What the hell?" Wally helped to push Robin to his feet.
"Dude- sorry! I just got -" Robin trailed off as Wally looked away, his face turning bright red. With Wally pushing him up while he pulled himself, he managed to get himself righted and standing on his own two feet. Wally's face began to turn red as he stared up at Robin. Looking down in horror, Robin realized that his tights did not hide the growing issue as well as might have been hoped. With a yelp, he ran into the bedroom and pulled the door closed behind him.
He slid down against the door, sitting on the floor. He pulled his knees to his chest and rested his head against them, feeling his cheeks burn.
How could he be so stupid and let himself fall into this situation. Wally was his best friend – and the only friend who knew everything about him. So there he goes, fucking it all up and messing his whole life up.
There was a hesitant knock at the door. Robin's head snapped up and he let his legs unfold to lay flat on the floor in front of him. He waited in the silence until he heard a voice. "Uh – Rob?" there was another pause. "Dick?"
Robin let his head thump against the door. "Let's just leave it, Wally."
"No, seriously. It's just.. science. You know, biology. When your sleeping, your body goes through the stages and uh-" He broke off, and Robin flashed back to the first time Wally had tried to explain sex to Robin when he was only eleven and first read about it. It was awkward mismatch of science and a kids imagination.
"That wasn't it." Robin said abruptly, his brain shouting at him to shut up, "I, uh. Have a crush on you?" his voice cracked awkwardly on the last word and Robin considered smashing his own head into the wall repeatedly until he either died or passed out.
As the silence on the other side of the door stretched out, Robin seriously considered holding his breathe until he passed out. He was fairly certain he could do it, too.
Then there was a strange shaking sensation and a moment later, a groan. "Okay, dude, you need to open this door, because if you don't, I'm going to keep trying to phase through it and that just isn't going to work." Wally sounded a little tired and Robin winced, silently berating his friends stupidity. He couldn't phase through doors, and trying was just going to tire him out. In fact, Barry had forbidden Wally from even trying when he wasn't around. Robin stood up and pulled the door open, coming face to face to his best friends whose ears where slightly red, but he had a determined look on his face.
"I-" Robin started, not sure what he was going to say. But Wally didn't give him a chance, and lunged forward, stopping just a moment before kissing Robin on the lips.
It felt like it took Robin a millennium for his brain to catch up with his body and to respond. Once it did, he wrapped his hand in the taller boys red hair and deepened the kiss.
They pulled apart with a gasp for air and looked away from each other.
"I – uh. I like you too, Dick." Wally said, "How lame does that sound? I mean, I've, uhm. Been gay for yo- no! Not like that. Ugh. You're the one who likes words, you say it!"
Robin almost laughed in his face, feeling elated, but instead grabbed the redhead's arms, letting them swing slightly. "Wally, I would like to date you."
Wally smiled, and nodded, "Yeah, that would be great."
They stood there for a moment until Wally tugged Robin forward into his arms, holding on to him tightly.
And that's where the Flash found them about half a second later, standing in the doorway holding each other.
"Never fear the Fla- Uh, boys?" Barry Allen stood inside the front door to the cabin, his presence bringing a flood of cold air into the already cold room. Robin shivered slightly, but Wally's naturally higher body temperature chased it away.
That is, until he pushed Robin away with his meta speed. His face had returned to it's bright pink state and he was avoiding both Barry and Robin's eyes. Robin rolled his eyes before reaching out to snag Wally's hand. When Wally looked up in shock he just raised one eye brow and looked at the Flash, who just shrugged.
"I can leave if you guys want? Well, I mean, no. Could you imagine Iris or Bruce if I told them I left you two alone in a secluded cabin after this development?" Flash fidgeted, rubbing the back of his head. "So, uh, anyone want to be rescued?"
Wally and Dick looked at each other and grinned.
I didn't include it, because I wanted to wrap this up neatly, but I figure once they realized Robin and Wally where missing, Batman tracked the Zetabeam, and then Flash started a manual search... You know, running back and forth looking for them. Found a cabin, heard their voices... bada bing bada boom.
