Dear cute Cal send me this Kon-Elle story via ask on christmas, now I finally found the time to post it <3. Thank you so much, Cal! I’m still amazed how emotional you made Dolphin man - he’s a joke to everyone except Nelle, and your wrote that down pretty well. Thanks sweety ;V; <333 It was thrilling to read it and how you did her!
(Tiny christmas gift - YJ fic that takes place after the dolphin-man battle i wrote for you once :D)
They sat quitely outside Robin’s hospital room. Impulse as close next to her as he could, offering silent comfort and seeking some of his own. “He’s gonna be fine, you know?” Nelle let out a huff of breath. “Doc said it’s okay to go in.” “Maybe I don’t want to?” She growled and pulled her knees up to her chest, wrapping her arms around them.
The linoleum floor they were sitting on was cold even through the sturdy fabric of their costumes. Nelle let her head fall against the wall behind her and sighed. “It was my fault.” She admitted finally in a quiet voice. Impulse tilted his head. “You saved him. It was the dolphin-man who dragged him under.” He chuckled. “Dolphin-man.” “He wouldn’t even have been able to grab him if I hadn’t been such a damn coward.” She buried her head between her knees and her hands in her hair.
“Batman is going to kill me, isn’t he?” “Nah. Batman doesn’t kill.” “He might want to rethink his morals now that I nearly got his sidekick killed.” Impulse shrugged. “He probably doesn’t know. Nelle shot him a glance. “Well I didn’t tell him, and you didn’t and Robin certainly didn’t.” He pointed between them as if to emphasize his point. “You forget that the freaky bats know everything.” She said.
“If he hasn’t killed you by now he is probably not going to then, if he already knows.” Impulse got up from the floor and offered his hand to her. “Come on grumpy.” He said and she had to smile. Nelle let herself be pulled onto her feet by her friend and together they went into Robin’s hospital room. “He is so going to bitch at me.” She groaned. Impulse laughed. (aaaand that’s it :3 sorry if they are a bit, or a lot, ooc. love you sweety <3 merry christmas)
