“What? Red King? 당신 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 당신 think, 당신 are the Red King. When 당신 were in my room, do remember when I asked 당신 why 당신 were there?”
“You told me that 당신 had no reason; that 당신 were drawn. How can 당신 think that it was a coincidence 당신 said that?”
Becca stared up at him, a real smile on her lips.
“You have to stay. 당신 can't leave us here. Without our king, what good are knights? 당신 have no family to return to. Elithia is after you, and we can protect you. Even Elithia fears our combined strength. If 당신 don't stay, she'll get you. And if 당신 go, everyone will hunt us. Because there's no way 당신 would keep our secret in the real world. Arith needs you. We need you. Won't 당신 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 당신 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 키스 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, 당신 guys none. I'll see 당신 in the kitchen.”
With one 더 많이 smirk, Becca turned her back on her jealous 프렌즈 and left. Kendra looked to the other two.
“Becca has some competition ladies.”
“I agree Kendra. Let's show 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.
