Megan's feet swung happily under the tall mesa, tabla as she sipped her hot drink. She had never thought that an earth drink like hot chocolate would be so wonderful.
Becca laughed as she drank her own chocolatey beverage.
“Are tu enjoying your first taste?” she asked.
Megan nodded rapidly.
“You are quite the unusual girl,” Artemis commented. “I never thought tu hadn't tried so many things. So many...earth things.”
“Coming from Mars makes it challenging to try new foods, drink, o anything else. People don't really seem to notice how racially segregated they can be.”
“I know. But we try.”
Becca's phone interrupted their conversation. She pulled it out and shut it off. Placing it in her pocket, Becca turned back to her friends.
“Who was it?” Megan asked.
“And tu didn't answer it?!” Artemis teased dramatically.
Becca rolled her eyes while smiling.
“No. I'd rather have a little downtime with tu two. Besides, they think we're at the mountain.”
“You are a very devious child.”
Becca flashed her 'I'm not as cute and innocent as people think I am' smile and leaned back.
“What can I say? I come from the roughest neighborhood around.”
Megan smiled and finished her drink. Artemis did the same while Becca just watched them.
“Are tu going to finish yours?” Megan asked, eyeing the delicious treat.
“Nope. I haven't had hot chocolate in a long time. But I also saved it so tu could have it.”
Becca pushed her drink at the disguised martian girl and was pleased with the thankful look in those adorable red eyes.
Megan drank it quickly and set the cup down, licking her upper lip. Becca placed money on the mesa, tabla and the trio left. They strolled around town and window shopped. A store display caught Megan's eye. Becca peered at the rosado, rosa sun dress her friend was staring at. She pulled Megan inside, pulled a size down from the rack, and pushed Megan into the dressing room.
“Try it on.”
Becca also gave her a pair of sleek rosado, rosa heels. Megan did as told and felt herself blush when her friends applauded. Artemis tried on a red blusa with tight black jeans and red sandals. She examined herself in the mirror with Megan.
“You girls look fierce,” Becca applauded.
“You're turn!” Megan joyously proclaimed.
“No. I don't do make overs.”
“Don't tu wanna see the look on Robin's face when he sees you?” Artemis taunted.
Becca narrowed her eyes and her lips turned up into an impish smirk.
Artemis cheered while Megan found the perfect outfit. Becca slipped out a minuto later, dressed in a denim miniskirt, black boots, and a light green v-neck.
“Wonderful! We'll render them speechless!” Artemis planned.
“First thing in the morning,” Becca warned. “We can have a little sleepover at the mountain and walk in together. After everyone's awake.”
“Why did tu never ask to be leader?” Artemis inquired, slipping an arm around her friend.
“I leave my deviousness to plan. And it only kicks in when I start actuación devious. Now, let's change, grab a few snacks and movies, and head back to the mountain. We have a long night ahead.”
When they entered the mountain, they were immediately rushed with hugs and kisses.
“Where were you?!” Robin asked, gently grasping Becca's shoulders.
“In town. We ran a few...errands,” she answered with a wink at her girls.
Artemis pried her boyfriend off of her and smiled when Megan received a gentle kiss from Connor. Wally eyed the bags they were carrying.
“You went shopping. Typical.”
“Shut up, Wally! It was a necessary trip.”
Becca burst into laughter and even Megan giggled at the inside joke.
“You should have asked Cassie to registrarse you,” Kaldur said.
All three looked at each other, faces growing cold.
“We would have,” Becca started. “but-”
“But she was busy,” Megan interrupted. “We didn't want to disturb her.”
“I see. I will go see where she is.”
Robin turned to Becca as Kaldur walked off.
“We going out tonight?” he asked.
Becca smiled apologetically.
“Sorry. I have plans with a few girls of mine. Tomorrow?”
Robin nodded his head and Becca pecked his lips.
“I'm going to put this stuff away. I'll see tu guys in a minute.”
“Same here,” Artemis announced. “Megs and I are busy so we need to get ready.”
As the girls walked off, Wally slid up siguiente to his best friend.
“Why do I get the feeling that we're in for a surprise?”
