“What? Red King? te guys are so wrong! I'm no king!”
Dick got up to leave, but stopped when a hand took hold of his wrist. He turned to look into Becca's calm brown eyes. Her hand slid down until she laced their fingers together.
“Dick, despite what te think, te are the Red King. When te were in my room, do remember when I asked te why te were there?”
“You told me that te had no reason; that te were drawn. How can te think that it was a coincidence te detto that?”
Becca stared up at him, a real smile on her lips.
“You have to stay. te can't leave us here. Without our king, what good are knights? te have no family to return to. Elithia is after you, and we can protect you. Even Elithia fears our combined strength. If te don't stay, she'll get you. And if te go, everyone will hunt us. Because there's no way te would keep our secret in the real world. Arith needs you. We need you. Won't te stay?”
Dick looked down at her, seeing the longing in her eyes.
“You're right, Becca. I can't just leave. I don't think I'm the one you're looking for, but te need me. And I'll help as much as I can.”
Becca smiled. She put a hand to his cheek and stood on tiptoe to baciare his other cheek. She pulled back and released him.
“You should go get something to eat. We'll be there soon.”
Dick nodded and left. Becca turned to the others with a satisfied smirk.
“The badass flirt one, te guys none. I'll see te in the kitchen.”
With one più smirk, Becca turned her back on her jealous Friends and left. Kendra looked to the other two.
“Becca has some competition ladies.”
“I agree Kendra. Let's mostra her how it's done.”
“After you, Artemis.”
The two left and Zatanna stayed where she was. She looked up to the heavens, worry on her face.
“No one will win this, huh? I hope for his sake, Dick is prepared for a full on flirt fest. And Becca was just getting started.”
Zatanna sighed and followed the sounds of Becca's screams and her companions' laughter to the kitchen.
