Batman and Robin:
Father and Son Part1
AUTHORS NOTE: i do not own any of the characters in this story. i just think BATMAN and ROBIN are the cutest father and Son sidekick couple ever! (not a gay sidekick couple, a FATHER AND SON couple... to all you sick minded people reading this ;D )
IN THIS SCRIPT ROBIN IS 7 YEARS OLD. HE IS AT WAYNE MANNOR, AROUND 2'OCLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON AND THINKS OF BRUCE WAYNE AS HIS FATHER AND ROBINS REAL NAME IS DICK GRAYSON (I AM NOT CURSEING).
Poor Dick sat there, curled up in a blanket in the corner of the room waiting for Bruce to return from his meeting. He hugged his favorite plush bat toy to make him feel better, it wasn't working. Right now, Alfred was his only company.
Alfred "Anything I can do for you ?"
Dick "NOO! I just want daddy home!" He pouted
Alfred knew very well that if this was a meeting with the league, Bruce would be gone for at least another hour.
Alfred "I'm sure he'll be home shortly, just a few more minutes." He looked at Dick, the poor child. "Say if you don't mind me asking, why don't you go play with the other kids?"
Alfred and Dick look over at the Kid Flash and M'gaan (Kid Flash is 9 and M' , they are playing tag. Me'gan is flying around while KF is running around)
Dick "Because all they want to do is play tag! KID Flash always wins when he's 'it' and when Me'gan's it she can just fly around! It's not fair! It's not fair that they have super powers! He started to cry "I want daddy! Daddy would make me feel better! He always does!"
Alfred: I know ; your father is a great person—
Dick: THEN WHY DOES HE ALWAYS LEAVE ME!?
Alfred: , he has duties to perform, your father is a very busy man. He is a complicated, hurt, mysterious man. But he is the best and most loving father I have seen in my whole life. He will be back soon, I can promise you that, but until he shows you must either go play with the other children or take a nap. Your choice sir."
Dick: I choose nap *he starts walking to his room when he sees KF and Me'gan chasing eachother and laughing. He murmurs to himself angrily* I don't need friends…
Dick woke up about two hours later to see a blurry figure patting his head and smiling at him
Bruce: hey Dickey! Guess who brought home your faaaaaaaavrite ice cream?!"
Dick "DADDY YOURE HOME!" Dick jumped onto his father and threw his arms around his neck nearly toppling him over
Bruce "so did you have a good nap? It's almost 6 and time for dinner!" Alfred was making his favorite downstairs. He had to make Dick as happy as possible so he would never have to face what was really coming. "Uncle Flash and Uncle J'ohn dropped Me'gan and Kid Flash here for a play-date? Did you guys get along well?"
Dick "well actually," Dick looked away to avoid his father's eyes "I didn't really play with them…"
Bruce "well why not?!"
Dick "well because, I feel so different… left out"
Bruce "why would you ever say that?"
Dick "well I'm also kinda scared..."
Bruce "of what? KID FLASH!? I mean sure he can be a bit of a show off but he's nothing to be AFRAID of!"
Dick "but I'm scared of what they will say to me, like what if they laugh at me for, you know… not having 'super powers?'"
Bruce started to laugh though he knew what the boy feared. Though he would never admit it he had once had this same fear, and he still did
Bruce "No one will laugh at you!"
Dick "but you just did" Dick looked away again this time with tears in his eyes.
Bruce "oh! No no no no it's not like that!" Bruce put his hand on the boys shoulder turned around and gave him a big long hug.
Bruce "do you know who Batman is?"
Dick laughed so hard he couldn't breathe
Dick "YOURE BATMAN SILLY!"
Bruce "and do you wanna know the best part of being Batman? Like what makes him so different and-"
Dick "BETTER THAN THE OTHER SUPERHEROS!?"
Bruce chuckled "yes, what makes him BETTER than alllllllll the other superheroes?"
Dick "cuz he can defeat a bad guy with a REALLY COOL batarang!?"
Bruce "yessss and the fact that he doesn't have any super powers"
Dick fell silent and the smile on his face melted like butter on a skillet
Dick "Batman doesn't have superpowers either? Wait!" his smile had started coming back "then he's just like me!" his smile was bright and big and back on his face at the thought that there was someone like him.
Bruce "and Batman used to be scared that people would laugh at him too, oohh he was frightened at the thought! But he knew he had to be strong and take all the words in and separate the good from the bad and fight whatever injustice struck!"
Dick was now squeezing his plush bat so tight it was about to pop. His eyes were open in amazement and he was so excited to hear all of this.
Bruce "and now look at him! He's the hero of Gotham City! See? You don't need superpowers to be a superhero"
Dick "you don't?" the boy looked puzzled.
Bruce put his hand on the boys' innocent heart "all you need is a superHEART, and the will to fight whatever obstacle comes in your way. That's what makes Batman so unique, that's what makes YOU so unique! Even though you may not have superpowers, you have a super big, caring, heart and that's all you need"
Dick "So maybe I can be a superhero like you some day! Or wait! I should be your sidekick!
Bruce tensed up. He had seen what had happened to all the other Leaguers nephews, daughters and kids they had made sidekicks. They came home with bruises and scars and were always filled with pain. Too much responsibility for Dick, he was only 7. He would never want dick to go through all the pain he had to go through every day as Batman.
Batman "well I don't know… it's a tough job being a superhero, but maybe someday I suppose" he said with a smile though in his mind it went more like 'I'm never letting you go out into the world of crime-fighting. Never ever EVER. But seeing how much the boy had missed during his meeting was so sad. Bruce thought he did well; he had turned the boys' perception about himself around. Dick started crying, crying tears of joy and threw his arms around his father once again
Dick "I told Alfred you would make me feel better. I love you daddy" he said into Bruce's shoulder "I love you more than anyone or anything in the world and I would do ANYTHING FOR YOU"
Bruce "I love you too, more than you can imagine. Now come on down for dinner, Alfred's got Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup with your name on it!"
Bruce picked up the boy and put him on his shoulder then set him back down.
Dick "what's wrong daddy?"
Bruce "Ahh nothing, my shoulders just a bit tight, ehh a rough night with the league, but no problem" Bruce picked up the boy on the other shoulder and started to walk out the door with him when
Dick "Batman's awesome" the boy hugged his dad and never let him go.
