Once Robin and Cardinal started to fall to the streets below, Scarecrow took this opportunity to escape. Batman, Flash, and Kid went over to the edge.
"Flash, Kid Flash; I can't get to them in time, but with your speed…" Batman started, but Flash put up a hand.
"We got it." Kid said, knowing that was what his uncle was thinking.
The two speedsters then took off down the side of the building to catch the falling twins. While the Central City heroes were saving the twins, Batman spotted Scarecrow leaving the clock, and went to capture him. It didn't take long as all he had to do was throw a bat lasso to snag the villain's legs and he was down.
"So you really don't care about those brats, I should have known." Scarecrow said.
"You forget Crane, I had friends with me." Batman said as he slapped a pair of Bat cuffs on Scarecrow.
"Those speedsters won't save them in time."
"You underestimate them, Crane."
Flash and Kid were running at their fastest to catch up with Robin and Cardinal, and they actually passed them and headed for the streets. When they were under the two protégés, Flash started swirling his arms, and Kid imitated it. This created two narrow tornadoes, and they reached the twins, slowing their descent and they landed in each of their new friends' arms.
"You two alright?" Kid asked, placing Cardinal on her feet.
"I'm good, just shaking from fear. Since I was five, I couldn't stand heights. Batman had helped me get over that, but when Scarecrow let go of my cape, I couldn't think." Cardinal stated, looking at Kid with a thank you smile on her face.
"I was scared too, but not of heights, I was scared that I would die like they did." Robin stated, a bit of fear in his voice, but it quickly vanished.
"Let's go help Bats, I'm sure he'll be glad to see you two are okay." Flash said, and with that, Robin and Cardinal pulled out their grapple hooks and shot them, and the speedsters started back up the side of the building. When the four of them arrived, they saw Batman handcuffing Cold.
"I knew they'd save you two." Batman said as he looked up from Cold to his children. "I was sure you'd both be scared by falling."
"For different reasons, but yea." Cardinal said rubbing her arm.
"It's alright." Batman said as he put a hand on each of his protégés' shoulders.
"So, what's going on?" Flash asked, utterly ruining a Bat moment.
"Just need to take Scarecrow to Arkham, and Cold needs to head back to Central City. Kid Flash can stay with me till you get back." Batman said as he looked from the twins to the Scarlet Speedster.
"Sure thing Bats; you two sure you're okay?" Flash said and when the twins nodded, he headed over and grabbed the handcuffed Cold then sped off. The trio headed down on grapple hooks while Kid ran down.
The cycles and Kid arrived in the Batcave, and Robin had let Batman drive his while he rode with his sister. They had gotten off the cycles and removed their masks when a familiar sound came into the cave.
"That took less time than I thought it would, but Cold is in jail in Central City. So how did it go with Arkham?" Flash said as he skidded to a stop and removed his cowl.
"No problem, so, what's going to happen with you two now?" Cardinal stated then asked, knowing that the mission was over that her and Robin's new friend would be going back to his city.
"Uncle Barry, could I stay with Dick and Reiena tonight, it would be great to have a sleep over." Wally asked as he got on his knees and was begging.
"I don't know Wally; I mean Bruce would have to be okay with it." Barry said as he rubbed the back of his head, not knowing how Bruce would feel about the idea.
"I'm usually busy…" Bruce started, but then suddenly, he looked at the twins, and they were pouting. "Okay kids, Wally can stay for one night, but then he has to head home."
"Wow, Bruce, I never thought you'd be one to cave that easily." Barry said with a stunned look on his face.
"The twins here have a way to get me to cave; I call it the Grayson pout. When even one of them does it, you just can't resist." Bruce said as he gave his wards a smile.
With that said, Dick and Reiena were beside Wally in a heartbeat, and they were talking about what all they were going to do. They had decided that Wally would go home sometime in the evening, since the fastest boy alive was the first real friend the twins had. They also had a lot of things planned, and Dick challenged Wally to a dancing game the next day.
"You can do whatever you'd like tomorrow, right now I want all three of you in bed, even if I have to use knockout gas on you three, you will all rest tonight." Bruce said.
The twins immediately ran and changed, but then Bruce looked at Wally, and the boy got the bat glare. With that done, Wally went to change, and found the Dick had some spare clothes for him. All three came out, and were ready for bed, then headed out of the cave.
"You sure, Bruce?" Barry asked, looking from the entrance to the manor to his colleague.
"Yes; even though they've been here for two years, they don't have many friends at school, well none that they would want to invite over. This will give them some time to themselves." Bruce reassured Barry as he saw a bit of worry.
"Alright then, I'll see you tomorrow evening, I've got to get back or Iris will kill me." Barry said and with that he pulled his cowl up.
"See you tomorrow then." Flash said, and with that left out of the Batcave to return home for the night. Bruce decided he should change, and make sure the kids were tucked in.
Once in the manor, he headed upstairs to the rooms, but was surprised when all three kids were in Dick's room, they had made two pallets and Reiena and Wally were using them, while Dick was on his bed. All three were sleeping peacefully, so Bruce decided to leave it at that, although he noticed that Dick's cover was not protecting him so he went and pulled it up so it was. The billionaire then left out, and was met by Alfred.
"I see you all returned safely." Alfred stated.
"Yes, and we are going have an unexpected guest for tomorrow. Wally is spending the night." Bruce said, informing his butler/father figure of the change.
"Very well sir, luckily I foresaw this and purchased extra food. I saw the children getting along so well, and I should say that they were very well when they are on their own." Alfred informed his 'son'.
"I don't doubt it Alfred, they wanted to help me and Barry." Bruce said with a slight smile on his face.
The Next Day
The kids were up early, and out on the basketball court. They decided on their walk to Dick's room that today they were going to finish up their basketball game from Wally's first visit to the manor.
"Okay, Wally, same rule as before; no super speed, and if we catch you this time, I will burn you." Reiena stated, and gave Wally her glare, and he held his hands up.
"Alright, Rei, you win." Wally said; then smiled as he put his hands down.
"Rei, hey I like that, guess that could be my nickname, since Dick's had his nickname for years." Reiena said as she thought over this nickname.
Dick saw they were ready and threw the ball to the young speedster. They started the game and the two guys were really having fun, when suddenly, Wally broke his promise, he used his super speed to get the ball away from Dick.
"WALLY WEST." Two voices shouted.
"Oh crap." Wally said, and with that, he ran at normal speed into the house.
Quickly, he was making his way to the Batcave, when he suddenly bumped into a large body.
"Did you do it again?" The voice asked, and when Wally looked up, it was Bruce.
"Yes sir." Wally answered, and suddenly, the twins were right behind him. "Okay, Rei, go ahead."
Reiena knew that he was ready to accept the consequences of his actions, so when he looked at the fire controller, she had a fireball in her hand and blasted it right at him. He closed his eyes, but instead of feeling the burn of the flame, all he smelled was singed hair. He opened his eyes, and saw a smirk on each twins face, then went to the nearby mirror and saw that the ends of his hair were now black instead of red.
"I never said I'd burn your skin." Reiena stated with a giggle in her voice.
"I think this is going to be a great friendship." Dick said then let out a cackle.
"Okay, since no one was hurt, why don't you go back to your planned day?" Bruce said, and he had a slight grin on his face.
The three took the billionaire's advice, and went on with their day.
Five O'clock PM That Day
It was close to time for Barry to arrive, but knowing him, he'd be late (funny with him being a speedster). Wally and the twins were in the entertainment room playing the dancing game that they had planned on, and to be honest, Wally didn't have an ounce of rhythm which is why Rei or Dick beat him every time.
"Come on, so not fair." Wally said. "Rei, you and Dick are too flexible, and besides, you've probably played the game forever, so you know the moves."
"We just got the game last week, and haven't even gone through some of those." Dick said, showing Wally some of the choices.
"So, you guys got Wally to try and dance, guess that showed you why he never dances." A voice said, and when the three turned around, Barry was leaning against the door frame with a grin on his face.
"Hey Uncle Barry." Wally said as he turned away from the screen.
"You ready to go kiddo, your mom's been asking when you're returning home. Dick, Reiena, it's nice to see you again." Barry said as he walked up to them.
"Call me Rei." The fire controller said with a smile.
"Rei, huh, where did that come from?" Barry questioned.
"Wally came up with it this morning. Oh, I should tell you, Wally's hair is a little singed at the ends, he broke our no super speed rule during basketball again, and I didn't go easy on him." Reiena stated with happiness in her voice.
"Well, Rei, Dick it's time for me and Wally to go." Barry responded and with that, Wally sped down to the cave and was back in his Kid Flash costume. Barry activated his ring, and instantly ran circles around the item that came out, and was now Flash, the Scarlet Speedster.
Kid Flash and Flash then sped out, leaving the twins alone, but not for long as Bruce was in the room.
"I'm glad you guys had a good time, and who know when you'll see Wally again, after all, he's not that far away." Bruce said as he saw the twins return to their normal expressions.
"We know, but he'll never forget us and we won't forget him." Reiena said and with that, she and Dick returned to the dancing game to see which of them could score highest on the song Step By Step from New Kids on the Block.
With that said and done, Bruce smiled and left the twins alone.
I'm sure the ending wasn't want you expected, but I just felt that was right.
