“Yeah, okay your run-jump-throw-jump thing was cool,” Kid Flash said, “but did you see my triple twisters?”
“Yeah,” Artemis said, answering for Robin, “I especially liked when you almost drowned.”
“I didn’t almost drown!” Kid Flash exclaimed.
Everyone snickered as they headed into the nearest open cafe. The bell attached to the door jingled, notifying everyone of their entrance. All seven people already in the cafe looked at the group of teen heroes. Artemis cleared her throat signaling that the keen attention on them was making them uncomfortable.
“This feels wrong,” Superboy said, his eyebrows furrowed in his usual grimace.
“It is for the sake of the mission,” Aqualad said as he lead his group to a booth.
“Still,” Artemis said as she slid into the booth, “being out this early and staying here feels like we’re sitting ducks.”
“Aren’t we exposing our identity and risking lives choosing a public place?” Miss Martian asked as she slid into the booth.
“Not really. Most of internet news is broadcasted by teens. Batman picked this time and spot because everyone is in school or work and this shop is in the center of town which means-” Robin sat across from Miss Martian as Kid Flash cut him off.
“It means the bad guys are too chicken to reveal themselves,” Kid Flash said as he slid next to Robin.
“Then why are we here?” Superboy asked.
Aqualad sat next next to Kid Flash, leaving Superboy to sit next to Miss Martian. “We are here as scouts, and if needed, first defense,” Aqualad said.
Superboy sat next to Miss Martian without a word, but a stranger could tell he was battling his thoughts.
“Wait, won’t the bad guys know we’re here? I mean, we don’t exactly fit in,” Kid Flash asked as he motioned to the team’s uniforms.
“That’s the point genius,” Artemis said as she fit her bow between the wall and her.
“We are just here to look and listen,” Aqualad said.
“Well can we at least order?” Kid Flash asked as he looked up at the menu.
“I am pretty hungry,” Miss Martian said as she mimicked Kid Flash’s actions.
You took that as a queue to walk up to them. Usually, it was the customer coming to the counter to order at this hour, but you figured they were a little lost on things like this. You made sure to grab six menus before you made your way to their table.
“Hi, my name is Y/N and I’ll be your server today,” you said, handing out the menus. You got scattered “thank you’s” and smiled, unknowingly catching the attention of one of the heroes.
“I’ll be back in a few minutes to take your order, okay?”
“Okay, thank you,” Miss Martian said kindly, returning your smile. You nodded and turned, not noticing as the leader watched you walk away.
“Oh man,” Kid Flash said, “they have a chicken wing basket!”
A few minutes later, you returned with a pink notebook and a pencil in hand. “Are you guys ready to order?” you asked politely. You accidentally met the leader’s gaze, you smile faltering slightly when he looked away immediately. Either the team noticed and didn’t say anything, or they didn’t notice and ordered instead.
When they all told you what they wanted you grinned and told them it would be ready in a few minutes.
“Hey hey,” Kid Flash said after you walked away, “you certainly are taking the rules of the mission seriously.”
Aqualad turned away from your retreating form to give Kid Flash a confused expression. “What do you mean?”
“Ya know…the look and listen only thing. You sure are looking, but I think you need to do more listening.”
Aqualad made a face while the girls bit back their laughter. “I do not understand what you are saying, but if you are referring to the mission-”
“I think he’s talking about our server,” Miss Martian said, smiling fondly as realization crossed Aqualad’s face.
“Observations are a key essential to stake outs,” Aqualad said.
“That was some deep observations there. Did you find anything useful…like their number?” Robin teased.
“Or if they’re single,” Kid Flash added, giving Robin a horizontal high five.
“Hey, cut him some slack,” Artemis said. Aqualad gave her a thankful look and she snickered, “but he obviously observed that they were pretty cute.”
Quickly, Aqualad’s thankful look turned to a irritated one as he sighed. The team’s teasing soon became a contest as to who could make more puns out of the situation, and as much as the team enjoyed their contest, Aqualad didn’t.
It was a relief when you came back with plates of food. “Here you are,” you said wiping your hands on the apron you wore, “let me know if you need anything else.”
“Actually,” Kid Flash said before you could turn around, “there is one thing my friend here needs.”
You looked at Aqualad as Kid Flash put an arm around his neck. “Your n-”
“No,” Aqualad interrupted, “we are fine. Thank you.”
You gave them a confused look before slowly turning and walking away. When you were out of range, Kid Flash pulled away from Aqualad.
“Dude,” he said.
“Now is not the time,” Aqualad said. Kid Flash sighed and sat back as he began eating his food, a new conversation taking over the group. Aqualad began eating as well, but he couldn’t help but cast glances at you as you talked to the chief behind the counter, wondering what would have happened if he let Wally finish.
