Roy narrowed his eyes at her and Becca stared at him calmly. He smiled and turned to Artemis.
“She's definatly a keeper. Don't let this one go.”
“I won't!” Artemis exclaimed proudly.
“Okay smarty,” Wally stated. “If te can pin point people so well, do him.”
Wally pointed to a black haired boy smaller than the last.
“Easy. Gymnast. stella, star of the team, mathlete as well. Excels at just about everything. Hides behind a mask of kindness to keep people at arm's length though he never use to. His father is a rich man and his son gets whatever he wants. But it isn't enough and he has to keep searching. Might be called a cold prince of Hell da some”-Becca looked at Artemis-“but has più emotion than anyone can see.”
Becca looked down at her hands, a blush appearing on her face. Wally looked at her with a tilted head and Zatanna seemed a little tense at the mentioning of the boy. Artemis and Roy shared a look before they all turned to Becca.
“How do te know all that about him?” Artemis asked.
“Dick Grayson. Adopted son of Bruce Wayne.”
“He was in the same circus I was when we were young. Before he Lost his parents I mean. He was my friend.” Becca smiled a little. “I haven't seen him in four years. Excuse me.”
Becca got up and left the table, heading towards the restrooms. The others looked at each other before getting up to follow her.
detto girl looked up at Artemis and Zatanna. She had gone against the restrooms and had headed to the library. This way, she could hide anywhere. Roy and Wally followed behind the two girls. Becca looked away as they sat down beside her.
“What's wrong Becca?” Artemis asked.
“Becca,” Zatanna whispered. “I don't have to know magic to see that something is wrong.”
Becca shook her head. They may be her new friends, but she wasn't too keen on opening up to anyone right now. But she guessed she owed them an explanation.
“Becca, why did te run off?”
Becca looked down, too embarrassed to look at them.
“When we were growing up together, we use to have THE biggest crushes on each other,” Becca explained. “Seeing him as a teenager at this school.....it's a little much to comprehend. I never wanted to loose our friendship but when he moved away, I didn't see him after that. He's famous now. He's rich, grown up, and has other friends. I just want to be his friend again. Even if it never grows to più than that.”
Artemis glanced around and opened her mouth to speak. The campana, bell rang, cutting her off.
“I've got to get to class,” Becca said.
She scooped up her libri and bag, leaving the others behind. Artemis watched her leave before turning to Wally.
“We may have use of that flirting factor Wally.”
His grin was huge as he stood.
“On it. Oh Becca~!”
