Dick Grayson walked down the road towards home. The streetlamps lit his way while the wind blew to it's merry tune. The sun had set hours before and the moon had risen to a perfect crescendo. He looked at his watch and then away. Eleven at night was early for him. But he had wanted to leave the party earlier than that. He usually stayed out later, not having any family to go home to. Tonight, though, he had made an exception. As he walked, Dick could hear the wind blowing leaves on the sidewalk. But a few minuti later, he felt like he was being followed. He looked back several times, but found no one. As he neared home, he froze in his steps. A black and gray lupo stood looking at him with oro eyes. It barred it's fangs and Dick took a step back.
“Easy. I won't hurt you,” he soothed.
The lupo growled low in it's throat. It hunched down and jumped. Dick ducked and the lupo jumped over him. He heard a loud bark and a faint “ouch.” He turned and saw the lupo standing over a girl. Her hair was rosa and her eyes were a bright blue. A coltello had fallen from her hand.
“Get off me te stupid mutt!” she screamed.
She kicked the lupo off and the animal skidded a few feet into the street. Dick looked over at the lupo before going to help the girl up.
“Are te okay?” he asked.
The girl dusted herself off and fixed her hair.
“I am now. Thank you.”
“You're welcome. The name's Dick.”
“Oh I know who te are. My name is Elithia.”
“Nice name. But how do you-”
Dick was cut off as the lupo barked several times, growling even more. Elithia hid behind Dick, holding onto his shoulders.
Dick looked at her from the corner of his eye and then back to the wolf. A little white kitten stood beside it, hissing at Elithia. She stepped out from behind him.
“You win this time,” she detto to the animals. “But I'll get the Red King sooner o later.”
Elithia turned to Dick and kissed him before disappearing. Dick looked at the two creatures and suddenly felt dizzy. He closed his eyes and the world went black.
