notes: well, i suspect that this is where i'll be taking a firm left turn from canon... which has been sorely lacking. but, at any rate, at least this one is out before outsiders 6. ^_~ (and as it turned out... the last one...)

"You had me worried."

"Nah, there was never any doubt."

"No. You had me worried." That arresting tone of voice.

"I... I was a little worried myself."

"Damn it, Roy." Emotion, audible emotion.

"Hey, it all turned out ok."

"I don't want to lose any more friends!"

"C'mon, Dick. I'm fine, right?"

"I don't want to lose you."

"Not a worry." Confidence. Bluster.

"I... I don't want to lose you."

Arms. Around him. Hardness, strength, hope. Circling.

"Hey. Not a worry."

"I... haven't been completely honest with you..."

"Oh. Uh. Well, I understand..."

"Maybe you want me to leave the team."

"What? Why? No!"

"I'm not here for them. I don't care about them. I care about you."

"...That's ok, that doesn't matter... I need you, Dick."

"You aren't listening to me, Roy. I care about you."

"You aren't listening to me. I need you."

Confidence. Hope. Peace.
