Coming Home AU || officerdgrayson
"Will Senna Romanov-Wayne please make her way to the main office." The old woman at the office spoke into the microphone excitedly. Senna blinked and looked up at the speaker in confusion. The girl groaned a little as she collected her books and began heading off towards the office as told.
Senna assumed it was some sort of business thing, or Bruce needing a Russian translator on short notice…. again… Either way, she was sort of glad to be called out from her studies. If she had to sound out another cell function that more closely recognized a key board smash than the english language, she was going to launch her book at the librarian.
Senna turned the corner and reached the office. She pushed the door open and entered, freezing in place as the sand colored camo-flague uniform greeted her. Senna dropped her things and sprinted towards him, jumping up and holding him tightly. ‘Don’t cry…. aw fuckit.’ “Y-you we-weren’t…” She cried into his neck and laughed. “Y-you lied you big brat!”
Chatting up the receptionist, talking about what was going on over there and even some of the sights he saw he turned hearing the door open. A bright smile came across his lips as he stared right at the little ebony haired teen. He grabbed her, wrapping his arms around her tightly rubbing her back. He couldn’t help but chuckle at the girl. “It was a surprise to me too Senna. Even more surprise Alfred didn’t cave in and told you.” he spoke hugging his sister tightly.
It had been so long since he had been in the same room as his sister, and this moment brought tears to his eyes. “I’m guessing you’re happy to see me huh?” he whispered into her hair as he loosen his grip setting her down. He was happy to be home and even more happy his surprise worked out in the end. He wrapped his arm around her shoulders pulling her in. “Come one lets go grab some lunch.” he said picking up her bag.
He was back for a few months and he wanted to spend every moment of him being back right now with her. He just knew he would be bombarded with other around the city wanting to welcome the soldier back home and he knew that Bruce would hold parties of his son returning home. “What are you in the mood for kiddo?”
"No. I’m positively miserable that you’ve returned." She rolled her eyes and snorted. Senna wiped her face and smiled at him as he grabbed her bags. "Lunch is good. I’m totally down for skipping-"
The woman at the desk chuckled and tapper her clipboard. “Says here you left at normal time.”
Senna grinned at her. “Thanks Ruby. Everything bagel with butter tomorrow?”
"I don’t take bribes, but kind gestures for your favorite school employee wouldn’t be taken as such."
Senna laughed and waved at her as the pair walked out. She looked up to Dick, overly ecstatic that he was home. She made herself a mental note to watch Alfred more carefully. He was sneaker than she had previously thought. Senna pursed her lips. “I’m thinking burgers and milk shakes.”
