Chapter 2- Training Day


Two Months from now-


"You've been a very, very naughty boy. You really need to be spanked." I slowly take my whip and run it down the Nightwings back, stopping at his ass crack. Then I take and whip his ass really hard. I have him on all fours. His legs tied together and his hands.

"You need to be taught a lesson. And I'm going to be the head Master. Where to begin. Let start with the pain threshold. Life is Pain! That I should get used to it. No matter what the enemy does to me, I should never let them see me sweat. No matter how painful, I should never scream. So tell me DICK! Will you scream when I do this?"

I reached down and grabbed him by the balls. I yanked them down hard. He arched his back. And I felt a rumbling in his chest. I knew he wanted to scream. I could feel it. I could see the sweat beads glistening on his forehead.

"Nothing. Hmm. I guess I'm going to have to get a little more creative. Hmm. I know, I have a great idea. Hold that thought. Don't go anywhere. Oh, that's right you're all tied up."

I walk into the bathroom and grab a bottle of rubbing alcohol. I walk over to him, grab him by the back of the head. I pull his hair back, forcing him to look into my eyes. I lean in and kiss his forehead, before I release him. I move over to his exposed ass. I slap it a few times really hard.

"Now lover this is going to hurt. I'm going to make your scream if it's the last thing I ever do."

I pore the bottle of over his ass. Turning my red hand marks redder. I grab the whip and begin a major attack on his ass. He thrashed his back and forth. He began squirming all around.

"100 lashes and still not a peep out of you. Some grunts, a few moans, but no screaming. Impressive. Oh no, stupid me. How can I expect you to scream when your mouth is covered. Here let me remove that duct tape."

I rip the tape off his mouth in one quick pull.

"Why are you doing this to me? I've welcomed you into my life. Into my heart. And this is how you repay me. You need help." Dick shouted.

"Why, you want to know why. You push and push and push me, till there was nothing left to push. Till I was completely broken, till there was nothing left of me. You said you wanted to make me stronger. Wanted to make me better. All you did was take away every part of me that was still good. You wanted to make me a man, well you've made me a monster instead. Now, now I'm going to punish you for everything you've done to me. I fell for you. I fell hard. I almost believed that you actually might love me back. That you actually wanted to be with me. Now, now I know the truth. You used me. You liked the control you had over me. I followed you like a dog. You said jump, and I said how high. Maybe it's because Batman was so hard on you. Maybe you're the broken one. He broke you and you need to break me to feel whole again. Well I have news for you, it all ends here. I'll never let you do this to anyone else. I'll be the last."

"Do you hear yourself. This isn't you. Grant. I do love you. I've shown you nothing but love. I let down all my walls with you. I've never done that with anyone else. I opened myself to you in everyway. You should me everything I was missing out on in life. Are you trying to tell me all the love we've shared, all the words, everything we've been through, was a lie?" he demanded.

"Dick...I...NO! Don't do that. Don't try and trick me. I wont let you into my head. No more, you cant manipulate me anymore. I'm stronger know." I smacked him again and again.

"You cant trick me. You cant control me. I wont let you. You are going to pay."




Present Day-




If I wasn't getting what I needed out of Nightwing, I would tell him off. I've never met a person that made me want to hate him with every fiber of my being. He said I was going to hate him. I didn't know it would happen so fast. He has me up at 5am. Doing two hours of training exercises before school. He has me start the second I get home from school for 8 hours straight. Now that part I don't mind at all. It's training with him. He nit picks everything I do. Don't stand like that. Feet are two close together. You're lowing your left arm. I'm not a robot, I cant learn it all in one day.

"Keep your left arm up! Grant I can see you coming a mile away." Nightwing urged.

"I'm doing the best I can."

"You need to focus. If your opponent finds an opening they're going to take you out. Like this!" he said.

As he said that he sent a jab to my left shoulder that sent me flying in the air, landing on my ass.

"Now, get up. Let's try this again." he ordered.

I wanted to tell him to stick it where the son don't shine. But I had a mission. The mission was all that mattered. So for now, I was going to eat crow, and do as I was told.

Don't get me wrong there has been some perks to this. Like learning about my abilities. I get to fly freely now, and that's one of the most freeing, amazing feelings. Learning about my super speed. Testing the limits of my strength and the energy discharge I give off, like when Superman tried to stop me. Like my father, it's tied to my emotions. So if I can learn to control that, it can be used as a great weapon against my enemies. And I need every weapon in my arsenal for what lays ahead.

Titan's tower is pretty awesome. Pool in the backyard. Game room. Training rooms. Bedrooms. Computer room. There is almost a room for everything you need. I've seen different members of the Titans and the Teen Titans coming through here. The place is always busy.

After our training he has me swim laps. That's the part I don't mind. Tonight I walked outside to the pool. The moon was high in the sky above. It was a perfect night. The temperature was just right. I set my towel on a lounge chair and walked to the edge of the pool when all of the sudden Starfire comes jumping out of the pool scaring me half to death. But that wasn't even the worst part. She came out stark naked.

"OH MY GOD!" I shouted.

"Grant. Did I frighten you?" she asked. I turned around and looked the other way.

"Maybe...just a little." I stammered.

"Don't be shy. Where I come from, being naked is a natural thing. It's very liberating. You should try it." her voice composed, serious.

"Um...Yeah...about that, it's kind of different for a guy." I started.

"Because you have a penis. The men of my world, walk around free of the burden of clothes, when it comes to leisure activities." she said.

"Not to sound retarded, but I'm sure I'm going to anyway. What do they do when they erection?" I asked shyly.

"Why it's only natural. To be truly comfortable with ones self is to be free. The insecurities of the people of this planet is incomprehensible to me. I think people would be less wound up if they freed themselves."

I thought about what she said for a minute, and figured, why the hell not. I've never skinny dipped. I've never done a lot of things. And where my life will be headed, I should probably get as many things done before I'll never be able to again.

"Princess, you're right. I'm going to do it."

"Good for you Grant. Free yourself." she said.

I pulled down my shorts in one quick motion and stood there for a moment feeling the night air on my naked body. Then I walked over to the edge and flipped into the air and dove into the pool. I did my laps, feeling free, feeling highly sexual. But free.

"This is amazing. Thanks for talking me into it." I said.

"My pleasure. You really should be proud. You have a very impressive body. And many men would be jealous of your endowment." she answered with a smile. My face turned red. But that statement coming from someone as beautiful as her, meant a lot.

I jumped out of the pool to the diving board. As I walked along it, I heard a gasp and froze in place. Aunt Donna and Nightwing walked out and were staring at me in all my naked glory.

"Grant, what the hell are you doing?" Donna demanded.

I locked eyes with Nightwing and he just stared, speechless.

"" I stammered.

"I told him he should be free of his inhabitations." Starfire said.

"Cory, he's just a boy. It's not okay for him to be naked." Donna said.

At the point we were joined by Robin and Wonder Girl, Cyborg and Garth.

I heard a whistle.

"Hello! Who's the hottie?" Wonder Girl asked.

I back flipped into the pool.

"Come on Donna. When we were his age we did it too." Starfire said.

"That was different, Cory. We were responsible for ourselves. He's my responsibility, and I think he's to young to be skinny dipping." Donna shouted.

"Hello. I'm right here. It's okay aunt Donna. I wanted to try it. I don't mind." I said.

"You're 17 swimming naked with an older woman. Of course you don't mind. Cory, in the future I'd appreciate it if you would refrain from swimming naked with Grant." Donna said while throwing my shorts to me in the pool. It hadn't been lost on me the fact that Nightwing was still staring at me, speechless.

"It's never bothered you before. In fact you've never had a problem when Robin or any other Teen Titan saw. And he's not a boy, he's a man." Starfire stated a fact that I've been trying to press for a while now. She got out of the pool in grabbed her towel and stormed off. I put my shorts on and jumped out myself. I shook my head and water sprayed around, and just stood there enjoying the eyes on my body. I never knew I had sex appeal until this very moment. I looked down at my body and loved the way the water glistened on my muscles. My abs, my V cut leading into my shorts.

"She's right you know. I'm not a kid anymore aunt Donna. I haven't been a kid for a long time now." I said.

"Grant, I know you're not a kid, but your still a minor, and you're my responsibility. And I say no being naked in the pool. Okay?" She asked.

"Fine. But don't be mad at Princess Cory, she was only trying to make me feel better." I said.

"I'm sure she was, who wouldn't want to make a hot guy like you feel better." WG said.

"Cassie don't you start. Can everyone get their hormones in check." Donna shouted.

"Tell me if I'm wrong here but I thought Demetrius (Please see Heir of the Amazon story.) was your only nephew Donna?" WG asked.

"This is Grant Emerson Jr. Damage and Liberty Belles son. This is Wonder Girl and Robin." Donna introduced.

"Hi, nice to meet you. Sorry about all this." I said.

"Honey you have nothing to be sorry about. And you can call me Cassie." WG said. I was really starting to like her.

"I'm going to bed. Grant don't stay up to late please. Cassie try and calm yourself." Donna said as she began walking in.

"Nightwing, are you alright? You've been standing there quite and frozen for some time now." I asked.

"I came out to tell you we have an early day tomorrow. I want to work on the flight simulator. yeah rest up and all that." he said and walked inside.

"Is he always so business like?" I asked.

"Yeah. You get used to it. But it is why he's the best at what he does." WG said.

"I'm sorry about your parents." Robin said.

"Thanks man." I said. Feeling a vibe from him that I was liking. What's up with the bat boys. These guys in masks because they're hiding the fact that they're gay?

"You can go back to skinny dipping if you want. We wont rat you out." WG said.

"It is a lot of fun, I have to say. But I don't want to make Aunt Donna madder. Have you guys ever done it?" I asked.

"We'll if you can keep a secret. (I nod) we do it all the time. It was a lot easier before the Titans moved back in here. They all just got back together as a team." WG answered.

"Can I ask a really crazy question? Have you ever flown naked?" I asked.

"Actually, yes. On Paradise Island. It was the most amazing feeling. Something that if you have the chance to try, I would suggest doing it." WG said.

Robin just nodded his head No.

"Sweet. That is one thing I really want to try." I said.

"So do you have a girlfriend?" She asked. Robin nudged her.

"What? I'm just curious?" she said.

"No. I don't." I answered. And never will.

"Okay you're like supermodel hot. How is that even possible?" she pressed on.

"Please I am not all that. I don't know. I guess I've just never met the right person. I'm starting to think I never will." I said.

"You are all that, and a bag of chips, with a soda on the side. So does that mean you're still a virgin?" she continued.

"Wow, you are not shy at all." I said.

"No she isn't. She always says what comes to mind. But that's what I like most about her." Robin said.

"Yes, I'm still a virgin. And if I have to answer, so do you two. Are you guys together?" I asked.

"I'm not a virgin. And no we aren't together. Just best friends." WG answered.

"Neither am I." Robin said.

"Can I ask who?" I asked.

"Superboy was my first and only." WG said with a frown.

"Oh I'm sorry." I said. (Superboy was killed by Superboy Prime in Countdown)

"Don't worry Grant when the time is right, it will happen. And I'm sure you're going to have your choice of who, when, how, and how many." WG said. It wasn't lost on my that Robin never answered. Interesting. I'll have to find out more about him.

"So what do you guys do for fun?" I asked.

"Who has time for fun. It's always one crisis after the other around here. Not only is Robin a Teen Titan. He also patrols the streets of Gotham. When I'm not on duty here, I'm usually helping Woman. Or Donna." WG said.

"Must be exciting and all. My parents never let me be apart of that world. I'm excited to see what's out there. I did manage to save Lex Luthor a while back. That was fun." I said.

"Lex Luthor? You saved him? Why?" WG asked disgusted.

"What do you mean why? Isn't that what we're suppose to do? He's a really nice guy, I don't get why people talk bad about him." I said. They stared at me with shocked expressions.

"Have you been living under a rock somewhere. Lex Luthor is Superman's sworn enemy. He's done things to each and every one of us. I don't even know where to begin. You sound like one of those people that likes to see the best in folks. But I'm warning you Lex is bad news." WG said.

"Hmmm. KAL has never mentioned anything about him before. I wonder why?" I said more for myself.

"KAL! Your on a first name basis with Superman?" Robin asked shocked.

"Don't you guys know him?" I asked.

"We'll we know him, but we're not on a first name basis with him. I mean it's Superman." Robin said.

If they only knew how close we've gotten. I mean he gave me a bath.

"He's great. He's been coming around ever since...we' know. So anyway. What are you guys doing tonight? I mean it is Friday night after all." I asked.

"We we're just planning on doing a quick patrol." WG answered.

"Can I come? Please. I wont be in the way. And I can handle myself." I begged.

"I don't think that's a good idea. If Donna or Nightwing new, they would skin our hides." Robin said.

"Who'd going to say anything? I wont. And if I did get caught, I would just say I followed you guys. Come on, give a guy a break." again I begged.

"Come on Robin. You remember what it was like. With both of us there, he'll be okay." WG said.

"Cassie, you're always getting us into trouble. Batman would not approve. And Nightwing would be sure to tell him what I did. I'm not looking to be grounded for the next month. I'd be cleaning out the bat cave." Robin said.

"Robin, please. I wont be in the way. I'll stay clear of any danger. I'll just watch and learn. Yeah, it will be like a training exercise." I said.

"Robin we were younger than him when we first started. And if there is any trouble he'll just stay out of the way. Right Grant?" she asked.

"Scouts honor." I said. Not that I was ever a scout.

"Fine. But if anything happens to him, it's on your head Cassie." Robin said.

"Great. Let's go." I said.

"Don't you think you might just want to put on some clothes?" WG asked.

"Oh. Yeah. That would be helpful wouldn't it. I'll meet you back here in 5 minutes." I said.

I took off into my room and threw on a pair of tight fitting jeans and my superman tee shirt. I didn't want to take the chance of getting caught so I flew out my window and around to the pool area. I landed next to them.

"Ready!" I said excitedly.

"Cute jeans. You really have a great ass." WG said.

"Cassie get your head out of the gutter." Robin said.

I just smiled. We decided that it would be easier just to carry Robin and fly out. So I grabbed his hands and up we went. The night sky was amazing. I don't know if I'll ever get used to the feeling of soaring through the clouds. We flew to Gotham and patrolled the city. Sticking to the roof tops. I had a strange sense inside my stomach. Excitement. Nervousness. To say the least. This was my first time actually out looking for danger. Guess what? I liked it.

I watched as Robin ran through the roof tops. Flipping in the air from one roof to another. While WG and I flew high above.

Robin suddenly stopped. We flew down to him.

"Looks like the Gotham Knights are here. Let's find out what they're up to before we take them down. Grant you stay up here. No matter what happens. You're just going to watch. Okay?" Robin asked.

"Yes. I'm staying here. Just be careful please." I begged.

I didn't think I would start to feel this way. Suddenly I started having flash backs of my parents. Me begging them not to go. To be careful. And then they died.

I started shaking. My heart pounding hard inside my chest. I began sweating, my mouth dry. I was having a panic attack.

I looked over the side and tried to watch. Another group of gang bangers showed up, and some man opened up the back of a Semi-truck. The gangs started shouting something. Then the man started throwing something out of the truck to all the gang members. Whatever it was, Robin and WG must have known. For they flew in and started fighting. I could see some of the gang members taking some sort of patch and putting it on there arms. They suddenly started growing. I mean literally growing. Their muscles grew, just like that one guy Bane. The veins in their bodies were sticking out. I had no idea how Robin and WG were going to handle all these people. I didn't want to watch any more. But I was so panicked I couldn't even move. I stood there breathing heavy, my vision becoming blurry. I kept trying to compose myself. To keep an eye on them. Robin was handling himself so well, till one super bad dude got the sneak on him. Robin was on the ground, they started whaling on him. WG had her hands full. I wanted to go help. I wanted to scream.

"Robin!" I shouted. The guys beating him looked up, buying Robin enough time to get on his feet. It all became to much for me. I got so dizzy, so light headed, I wasn't breathing. I fell forward and off the side of the building. I felt my body plummeting to the ground. I tried to will myself to fly. But nothing. I crashed on top of a car below crushing the roof in, breaking the front and rear windows out. The crash was so loud, thundering. I couldn't move. I didn't know if I was in pain. I didn't know what I was. I could hear screams all around me. I heard someone shouting my name. I wanted to move, but I couldn't.

"Robin we have to get him out of here." WG demanded.

"I've called for back up. ETA 20 seconds." Robin said.

Then I saw him. Swooping down from above me. The Batman.

As excited as I waned to be. Two things were running through my head. One...We are sooooo busted. Two...Why the hell cant I move. I've never had a panic attack before. But I know enough to know that it shouldn't render me paralyzed.

I could hear screams, and people being knocked out. Other screaming 'the Batman is here, run.'

The Dark Knight really does instill fear into the hearts of criminals.

"Robin! What happened here? Why is Grant here, in Gotham?" Batman's voice was filled with disappointment.

He moved on top of the car and was checking me over.

"It's not his fault. I followed them here." I lied.

"Are you in pain? Where does it hurt?" Batman demanded.

"That's just it, I don't feel anything. I just cant move." I said.

"Someone else is here. Robin. WG. Stay right here." Batman ordered.

He then flew into the air. Within moments he was back, holding someone.

"Willie. Why are you polluting my streets?" Batman asked.

"Ah...Bats...I...was the show." Willie answered.

Batman must have grabbed something cause next he asked.

"What's this Willie?" Batman asked.

"It's n-n-nothing. Car remote charger." Willie said.

"Do you take me for a fool. I'm going to count to five. If you don't tell me the know what will happen next. 1..3.." Batman started.

"Okay...Okay...But you're going to have to protect me. They'll kill me." Willie said.

"I'll do far worse. Start talking." Batman said.

"If you push the button the kid will be able to move." Willie said.

Batman pushed the button and suddenly feeling moved through my body. I was starting to feel back to normal.

"Who sent you? I want names. Now!" Batman demanded.

"It was Mirror Master. H-he was at Titan Tower earlier and heard that the kid was going to be here in Gotham. He came to me. Told me to push this button when I seen the kid. Mirror Master would be watching the rest. That's all." Willie said.

"Why the kid. What does he want with him." Batman's voice was deep and commanding.

"I-I don't know I-I swear. That's all he said. That's all I know. I swear."

Mirror Master. My mom and dad used to talk about him. And he's part of the Injustice Gang. Why would he do this to me. Are they afraid I'm going to come after them. Now more than ever they should be. They made a big mistake tonight. They should have killed me. Cause I will be coming after them. Starting with Mirror Master.

"Get straight back to the Tower. I'll deal with you later Robin." Batman commanded.

"But it wasn't his fault. I told you, I followed them here." I started. But Batman put his hand up for me to stop talking.

"Go! Now!" Batman said.

Robin and WG grabbed my arms and walked away. We flew into the sky. At first not a word was spoken.

"You guys hate me now don't you?" I asked.

"No. No. I'm just running things through my head. I'm trying to figure out what they wanted with you. Also I'm trying to figure out how I let my guard down enough to let Mirror Master slip under my nose." Robin was the first to speak.

"But now you're going to be in trouble. It's all my fault. I shouldn't have begged you to take me. I'm so sorry." I said.

"Grant. We're sorry. We knew better. Anything could have happened. And something did. We'll deal with the consequences. Right now we're more worried about you. And what they want with you." WG said.

"One of them killed my parents. Can't they just be afraid that I'll come after them?" I asked.

"If you haven't come after them yet, they could hardly be thinking you would. Revenge for the death of a loved one, usually happens right after the death. Enough time has passed. They're after something else." Robin Said.

We remained silent the rest of the way. I didn't want to say anything that might give away what my intensions really are.

Instead I started to think of what was going to happen when we got home. I know I'm in trouble.

We arrived back, landing in the pool area. The Titans were waiting for us.

Donna run over to me and hugged me tightly. Okay I could deal with that.

Then it came.

"Just what the hell did you think you were doing? Have you lost your mind? You could have been killed." Donna demanded.

"Aunt Donna. I'm fine. Really. Look at me, nothings wrong." I said, avoiding her other questions.

"Cassie how could you take him out with you. You know better." Donna began but I interrupted.

"Wait. Stop. They did nothing. They went to do a patrol. I followed them." I lied again, and it was becoming easier.

Suddenly a recording played the conversation Robin, WG and I had. BUSTED!

"Okay. So maybe it didn't happen the way I said. But come on. You cant keep me trapped all the time. I'm 17 years old. It's Friday night. Most people my age are out having fun. At least I was out with two responsible people. You don't get more responsible than someone from the Batman family. I was safe the whole time. But either way, if you want to blame someone than blame me." I said.

"Oh, I am blaming you. They are not the only ones in trouble mister. I'm so mad at you right now, no not even mad, I'm disappointed in you. I expected more from you." Donna said.

I was floored. It was the first time in my whole life anyone had ever said they were disappointed in me. I have a weakness, something I hate about myself more than anything. When I get upset, angry upset, my tear ducts betray me and I begin to cry. The tears began streaming down my face. Everyone standing around staring at me didn't make it any easier. I knew my eyes were glowing green. My dad always loved that about me. He said he used to melt the second I started crying, from the beauty of my eyes. His little Emerald boy.

I was so embarrassed more than I had ever been before In my life. All these heroes that face death on a daily basis, and here I was crying because I was being scolded.

"I cant. I cant do this right now." I said. And I took off into the air.

"OH. NO. YOU. DON'T." Donna said as she flew up into the air and grabbed my leg yanking me down. I landed on my ass. I pulled my knees to my chest and laid my head on my knees.

"You cant go anywhere. There are dangerous people after you. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to shout at you. I just got really scared. You are my responsibility to protect. To take care of. You could have been killed. Do you even know what that would have done to me? I'm just...I don't know what I'm doing here, I'm trying to do right by you. You have to help me though. We need to work together. As a family." Donna said.

She was right. My parents left her in charge of me. She was the closest thing to a family that I would ever have. I don't want to lose her. I was entering a new world. A world I didn't quite understand. I didn't know myself anymore. I don't know who I am. I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know who I'm becoming. I'm scared. Really truly scared.

My life had been so easy. My parents had made sure of that. Now everything has changed. I have an anger building inside me. One that is threatening to burst. I've never felt so lost before. I'm becoming afraid for anyone around me. When the time comes and I do explode, heaven help the people around me. For I feel I will completely lose it and I wont be able to control myself.




The Injustice Gang's Satellite-

"Batman has taken the bait. I don't know what you hope to achieve by this, but you're in charge." Mirror Master said.

"Don't worry about what I hope to achieve. My plan is flawless. Batman will now tinker with that toy. Trying to figure out how it works, how it disabled the boy. They will be busy working that angle, never realizing what my true angle is." Prometheus boosted.

Circe appears in a puff of smoke.

"Circe! Tell me you've brought me good news?" Prometheus asked.

"Of course I have. Darksied is planning to invade Paradise Island. (For that story check out Heir of the Amazon) The JLA will be occupied. More over the big three will be occupied. Darksied is after Wonder Woman's Heir. She will call in her beau Batman. Superman will no doubt run to his best friend's aid. With the three of them gone. The watchtower will be ours for the taking. We'll have one shot. Victory will soon be within our grasp." Circe smiled evilly.

"Then let us begin our preparations. We will set fires everywhere, leaving the watchtower open. They will be spread way to thin. Let us get to work." Prometheus said.

Back at Titans Tower-


Nightwing (Dick) POV-

Upon meeting Grant, I was instantly taken by him. I've never been mesmerized by anyone before in my life. It wasn't just the fact that he was amazingly hot. Or the perfect body he had. Or that sweet full luscious ass of his. Or those amazing full lips. Or his perfect hair that hell down in all the right places. Or his amazingly breath taking Emerald Green eyes. No. None of that. Okay well that is enough right there. But there was something far greater, far deeper. His innocence. It was overwhelming. You could see it in his face. You could hear it in his words. The way he moved. The excitement that only someone not jaded could possibly have. The fact that his parents were killed. But he tries to keep a positive attitude. I get it. When you lose somebody, let alone your parents. You long for someone. Someone to come and fill that void. Someone to make things right again. If I hadn't had Bruce I don't know what I would have done. He took care of me, he loved me. I know that Grant needs that. I want to give it to him. I want to be the one to take care of him. But it's not my place. Not to mention the fact that he is still a minor. Can we say Jail Bait.

It's so easy with him. He doesn't even realize the power he has over people. He has Superman wrapped around his finger. I mean come we are talking about Superman. Everyone who comes in contact with him, wants to coddle him. I don't blame them. It happened to me the second I saw him.

Then walking out into the pool area to find the full Monty going on out here. My mouth hung wide open. My eyes bugged out. There was this young Adonis in all his glory. My heart started skipping beats. His long flaccid cock left me floored. I wanted to run and grab him and make sweet love to him. I wanted to taste that sweet cock sliding down my throat. I wanted to slide all of my 8 inches up his tight bubble butt. I was so lucky to have been standing behind Donna. My cock rose at the sight. I don't know if you wear tights, but if you don't let me tell you, it leaves nothing to the imagination. I was on full display and there was no way I could move. I was frozen. Captivated. I wanted him and I wanted him bad.

I left the second Donna did.

But then we got the call from Batman. Everything went black. Hearing what happened to Grant. It drove me wild with anger. I wanted to find and hurt whoever did that to him.

When they came back. And I saw that he was alright. My heart started beating again. I wanted to run and hold him. Tell him it was all going to be alright. But then Donna let him have it. And he began crying. My heart was torn in two. I wanted to shout at Donna to stop. The more he began to cry the more I wanted to scream. His eyes began to glow. They were literally glowing in the dark. My little Emerald Boy. That's what I wanted to call him. Then it became so embarrassing for him, with everyone there and he tried to take off and Donna stopped him. I wanted to stop it all right there. I should have put a stop to it. But it wasn't right, she was his responsibility. I couldn't step it. No matter how bad I wanted to. Who was the kid? How did he come into our lives and sweep us all off our feet. If I hadn't been trained by Batman, to guard and hide my emotions. To never let them see me in pain. I would have given it all away. I would have let everyone in on my dirty little secret.

Great here comes Superman and Batman now. Superman gets all the breaks. It's just not fair.

Grant's POV

There I was on the ground. Crying like a little girl. Nightwing standing there staring at me like I'm an idiot. He probably never cries. He's so macho, so above feeling anything. Maybe I didn't like him because I envied him. Maybe I didn't like him because I wish I could be more like him. Maybe I didn't know what I was feeling about him. All I know is I want out of here right now. All I know is I want my dad right now. And that's not going to happen.

"Does everyone really need to be out here staring at the blubbering idiot on the floor?" I shouted.

Then Superman and Batman showed up and I knew that no one was going anywhere.

Superman looked at me, then looked around. He must of heard what I said, well of course he heard, super hearing.

"Batman will fill you all in. I'll be back in a little while." Superman said.

I wanted to cry, oh wait I'm already crying. I wanted to yell at him. How could he leave me here like this? I thought he was my friend.

"This isn't the time. This is serious." Batman shouted.

"This is more important right now." Superman said.

Then he came over to me and picked me up and flew off with me. While Batman shouted something I could no longer hear.

"You didn't leave me. You didn't leave me!" I said.

"I would never leave you. I told you I would always be there for you." he said.

We flew through the night sky. He held me in his arms and I nuzzled myself into his neck. I cried for a little while longer. We landed on top of the Daily Planet.

"Thank you!" I said.

"You never have to say thank you. You mean the world to me. Now are you okay? Do you feel okay? Are there any effects you're still feeling?" he asked.

"Other then being embarrassed for crying like a crazy person. Being caught naked. Or getting potential friends to hate me. Or disappointing Aunt Donna. I'm A okay." I said.

"Naked huh!" he said. I knew that was coming.

"Yes naked. Starfire told me to try it. I did. Got busted. Moving right along."

He started laughing and then I started laughing. We carried on like that for some time.

"I needed that. How do you always manage to make me laugh? I don't know what I'd be doing without you. You've beyond amazing. I can never thank you enough."

I walked up and hugged him tightly. My hands moved up to his face, I don't know what came over me. I just knew I needed something and he was right there. I grabbed him and started kissing him. For a moment it was the most amazing thing to me. But then he suddenly stopped me and pushed me back.

"Grant. I cant. We shouldn't. I'm sorry." he stammered

"Can I just dig a hole and crawl in it. Today is such a bad day. I'm so stupid. I'm sorry I shouldn't have done it." I said.

"Grant. No you didn't do anything wrong. It's just you're a minor and well I'm Superman. I cant." he said.

"So are you saying if I was 18 that would make a difference?" I asked.

"No, that's not what I'm saying. Grant I cant go there with you. Your young and very attractive. You are going to be a big heart breaker. Trust me, you already have my heart. But I'm with someone. I'm married. I have a secret identity. Believe me if things were different, I wouldn't hesitate. But I cant." he said.

"You're married! Wow. I didn't know. I didn't think." I couldn't say anything else. I was thrown.

"Look Grant. It doesn't change anything. Nothing. I care about you deeply. I want to take care of you any way I can. I'll still give you a bath anytime you want one." he said with a smile. I started laughing. If he was trying to lighten the mood, it worked.

"You promise?" I asked.

"Damn skippy."

"So you really would've had you not been married?" I needed to know.

"In a heart beat. Nothing would have been able to stand in my way. You my friend are irresistible!"

"You're such a smooth talker. So this is our little secret right. I don't even want aunt Donna to know. I need time to figure myself out. I have a lot to figure out."

"Don't worry I'm the fort knox of secrets." he answered.

"So why are these people after me?" I asked.

"You have the best detective in the world working on it. When we find out anything, you'll be the first to know. Right now, we only have leads. But I don't want you to worry about anything. We are going to figure this all out. But I do need you to follow the rules. No sneaking out. Unless you tell me about it. Then I could have been keeping an eye out for you. But still give you your space. There are better ways to do things. You just need to ask me next time. Okay?" he asked.

"Okay. I promise. But they cant treat me like a prisoner. I need some me time. I need time to grow. To experience life. My parents sheltered me to long. I feel like I don't know anything about this world. I'm done being coddled I want to be a man!"

"Grant, you are a man. A young beautiful man. There is plenty of time for you to experience all life has to offer. We are here to help you, but you're going to have to trust that we know what we're doing. Everything we do is to keep you safe. So you can live life to the fullest. Trust your Aunt Donna. She would do anything for you. But I do understand what you are saying. I will talk to them. We'll set up times for you to go out. Chaperoned of course. But we can work it all out. Communication is the key."

"Thanks KAL. I'll do my best. But I'm not perfect. I'm going to make mistakes." I said.

"I know. We just want to save you from as many of those mistakes as we can. Don't forget what you mean to us." with that he picked me up into a hug. And kissed me softly on the lips. Not a sexual kiss. But enough of one that it made my night.

"Thanks." I smiled

He scooped me up and we flew into the night sky back to Titans Tower. I felt a lot better. Totally calmed down. Superman has that effect on me, that's for sure. When we landed everyone seemed to still be in the same place. Only Batman was standing in the center talking. I kind wish I could have heard what he was saying. It would have been nice to see him in action.

"You all have your assignments. Any questions?" Batman asked.

<Diana to Batman. Come in Batman?>

<Batman here. Go ahead.>

<Paradise Island is being attacked by Darksied. I need you to come now. Demetrius is in trouble. Bring Superman with you. Darksied intends on killing my son...>

<Diana! Diana! I'm coming!>

"Superman let's go!" Batman ordered.

"Stay safe. I'll be back as soon as I can." Superman told me.

"Be careful!" was all I could say.

I watched as Superman grabbed Batman's hand and off they went.

"Nightwing. My sister and my nephew. I have to go." Donna said.

"Go. I'll take care of Grant. I wont let him out of my sight. He'll be safe. I promise." Nightwing told her.

"Grant, please just listen to everything Nightwing says. He's in charge anything he says go's. Grant I don't want to go into battle, worried about you. Please, just do as he says. I'll be back for you as soon as I can." Donna begged.

"Aunt Donna. I love you. Go save your family. Be safe. I'll be okay. Nightwing's the best to protect me. I'll be in good hands. Don't worry." I tried to sound convincing.

"I love you too Grant. So much. I'll see you soon." she said as she kissed my forehead.

"Donna if you need assistance, just call us." Nightwing said.

"I'm going with you." Starfire said.

"That's my home too." Wonder Girl said.

"Then let's go!" Donna said, as they took off flying into the night.

"Nothings changed. Everyone still has their orders from Batman. Move out. Stay in contact with Oracle." Nightwing ordered.

One by one everyone started to leave. It was Robin, Nightwing and I.

"What orders?" I asked.

"The ones that keep you safe!" Nightwing answered.

"Does that mean you aren't going to tell me?" I asked.

"It means don't worry your pretty little head." he said.

"Why cant you tell me? Batman was going to say it in front of me." I demanded.

"Robin you have monitor duties. Grant let's go for a walk." Nightwing said.

Robin nodded and then walked inside. I followed Nightwing.


Mean while-

Watch Tower-

Inside the Watch Tower Mr. Terrific is monitoring all JLA activities.

<Canary central city is under attack. I need you to take a team there now. Green Arrow, Fire, Ice, Hawk and Dove. Get to the transport.>

<Confirmed. Canary out.>

<Hawkgirl your team is needed in Gateway City. The Rouges are holding hostages at Queen Industries.>

<On our way.>

"We're being spread way to thin. I don't like this." Martian Manhunter said.

"I know Jonn. With most of the JLA battling Darksied on Paradise Island, we have no choice." Mr. Terrific answered.

"Something isn't right. I can feel it. This all seems so organized. Terry. I think this is a trap..." Martian began.

"And a trap it is." Prometheus said as he shoots the Martian Manhunter with a dart that turns his shape changing power against him.

<Security Alert! Security Alert. All hands to the Monitor Room. Security Alert>

He then throws a medallion the explodes into a ball of light knocking Mr. Terrific unconscious. Steel comes running in. But Prometheus pushes a couple of buttons on his wrist which send a signal into Steel's armor, infecting it with a computer virus which will now command his suit to damage the Watchtower. Green Lantern flies into the room. And Shoots a large green hand at Prometheus, but Prometheus attacks him with a Neural Chaff that renders his ring useless by making it impossible for Lantern to concentrate enough to use it. Zauriel the angel comes flying in and sees that Green Lantern and the others are out of commission, un sheaths his sword and flies at Prometheus. Prometheus pushes a button that opens a doorway to the Phantom Zone sending the angel there.

"One by one they march to there doom. So very easy. I truly am a genius. Now for the prize." he walks out of the room. Leaving Steel destroying the Tower. He walks into the Hall of Justice. He moves slowly around the round table. Touching each insignia of the main 7 core members. He stops when he gets to Superman's chair and pushes a button underneath the table. Behind him a door opens. He saunters over to it and walks through.

"So very easy indeed. Like taking candy from a baby." Once inside the room he walks to a glowing box. He pushes another button on his wrist plate and it makes a loud piercing sound, shattering the glass case that was holding the box.

"Two down One to go. Victory will soon be mine. These fools wont know what hit them." he laughs to himself. Explosions can be heard all around. The Tower is being completely destroyed and no one is coming to save the day. No one.

<Circe open a doorway. I've got what I came for and so much more.>

With that he walks through the portal.
