When Dick got a call just after four in the morning, he knew something was wrong. It was a pretty fair assumption in his line of work, and one that was proven to be entirely correct when he picked up and heard Bruce’s strained voice on the other end.

Your expertise in this area would be appreciated,” “Ooookay?” Bruce grunted his acknowledgment before hanging up, leaving Dick to sit there in the dark, clutching the dead phone to his ear and trying to figure out what the hell a ‘Domestic problem’ entailed when applied to their family. He wasn’t entirely keen on finding out.
