A/N: A short chapter to finish up the story. Thanks to you guys who read it when I first put it up and to all the reviewers and favorite-ers. I'm truly thankful for you guys, and you have made my fanfiction Thanksgiving wonderful!
DISCLAIMER: Do I have to say it again?
Jason woke in the Batcave, instantly disorientated. A stream of curses flowed from his lips until they were silenced by the sight of Alfred.
"You gave us quite a scare, Master Jason," Alfred said. "We thought you wouldn't make it."
Jason shuddered at how close he had come to being dead again and sank farther back into his pillows, closing his eyes and falling back asleep.
When Jason woke back up, he found his entire family surrounding him. He pushed himself up so that he was sitting, not knowing what to say.
"How are you feeling?" Bruce asked.
"Like hell," Jason replied. "Why do you care?" He regretted the words as soon as he said them. Bruce had gone out of his way to pick up Jason when he heard what happened.
"Alfred said you're going to need to rest for a few days, but you're going to be fine," was all Bruce said in reply. Jason just nodded, and the room descended into the second awkward silence of the day.
After a few minutes, Dick spoke up. "Alfie's going to bring down a pumpkin pie. We figured we'd eat it down here instead of the dining room."
Jason nodded. His family was reaching out to him, something that had never happened before. "Thanks," he said to Dick, "for saving me."
Dick waved it off, but Jason could tell he was surprised. "Yeah well, I can go after Sarah when I get back to Bludhaven."
"What was she doing in Gotham?" Clearly, Tim hadn't been told who almost kept Dick from saving Jason.
"I'm not sure," Dick said, "but I'll let you know when I find out." End of discussion.
The door to Jason's room opened, and Alfred appeared carrying a pumpkin pie and six plates. As Alfred cut the pie, Dick passed it around, and soon Jason found himself digging in with the rest of his family. They were talking and laughing and there was absolutely no awkwardness where the normally aloof Jason was concerned. He had a family, and that, he realized, was something to truly be thankful for.
A/N: Thanks for reading! Please review and tell me what you think! The sequel for Nightwing, Conspiracy, will be up within the next few days. Hopefully he'll be able to find out what Sarah's planning, right?
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
