    July 4th, Year 7
    @Wally West

    "Thanks for the information" Artemis frowned as she stepped back from the guy - his nose now bleeding but that was the worst she had done - some criminals turned on each other faster than others. Normally she wouldn't imitate Batman's interrogation methods but she was not in the best of moods and needed answers fast even if she hadn't gone as far to hang the guy upside down off a roof like he would.

    Her day had started out great, and she had even been planning a surprise 4th of July feast for Wally as part of their first date in Pandora. Until she had come home for shopping for that night to find the front door open and the babysitter unconcious in the sitting room. After getting the teenage girl awake and calmed down, she felt sick - the burglars must have been watching the house with a score to settle. As they had left a note saying "Remember us, and thanks for the kid"

    It had taken her all day to track down that lead and she wished she had called the city watch in now as the people behind this were the same guys she had met on Wally's first day back in Pandora. And nobody messed with her birth family, a big mistake as she had sworn to take care of her niece for Jade's sake and the youngest member to boot. Yet locating Lian before charging in was her first move so she flitted across the warehouse roof, from skylight to skylight and looked down into the building. They hadn't even changed their base of operations...

    So Wally had not been to put on the suit when he came back with a range of fireworks and sparklers for them to play with that evening, no he thought he would have a nice evening in surprising Artemis with some fun toys. But no, he came home to find a house without anyone home despite Artemis saying they'd be there and very quickly discovered the note Artemis had discovered. It had not taken him long to put two and two together, nor had it taken him long to locate Artemis (Thanks to Nightwing and his hacking skills) he'd been able to track her fairly quickly.

    He knew that likely she had not asked for his help on this hunt because she was afraid of something happening to him and yet he was afraid of something happening to her too. He also knew that together they stood a better chance of winning, so Wally had followed and then watched from the shadows in his stealth suit. She was on a rooftop of a rather familiar building, peering through skylights and Wally was fighting off the slight nausea he had at being back here, the place where he had nearly become a pin cushion. Casually he pulled the googles down from his red hair, a focused look washing over his face, then like lightening he climbed the side of the building, landing evenly in a crouch upon the rooftop behind her.

    Knowing she was likely swinging round to deal with the new threat he looked up at her and smirked saying"Don't shoot beautiful! You didn't really think I'd let you do this rescue alone right? I mean I have to stay her favourite somehow!" His voice was quiet, but snarky, amusement glittered in his pale green gaze. Then he was adding"Considering skylights were how you got in last time to save me, have you considered that they might be expecting that?" His voice was thoughtful as he went on"I did see a vent which looked big enough for us to scrawl through when I was circling the building though..." He was offering her his sweetest smile, a wicked glint too his eyes but within his chest the red head was focused, angry even, how dare these thugs come into their home and steal a child!

    She was on full alert - reacting to the sound of feet hitting the roof before turning to see who was behind her and lowered her bow, grateful she hadn't grabbed an arrow yet. Keeping the weapon in one hand, the blonde archer threw a smirk at Wally on hearing her boyfriend's comments then whispered back "Don't sneak up on me like that then and no, I didn't, after all she does like her Uncle Wally. And I was just doing some recon first actually, they're all holed up in the center of the building"

    Nodding grimly at the mention of the vent, she moved to collapse her bow and sling it onto her back so it wouldn't scrape the sides and give them away, adding "Good, lead the way." She was doubly annoyed, mostly over the kidnapping but partly because they had also ruined her plans for celebrating today with the two people closer to her. And if she knew Wally, this sudden turn of events would have ticked him off too. Besides this wouldn't be like the last time where those guys had managed to get the jump on the red-head.

    Wally smirked at Artemis' response to his arrival, ready for a fight and noted her smirk in return to his words. Behind his googles a ginger eyebrow rose, his arms folded across his chest and yet when she mentioned him being Lian's favourite uncle his smirk shifted into a more friendly grin as he responded cheerfully"You bet I am!" Even as Artemis told him that the men were all holed up at the heart of the building, his face shifted to a more serious expression at her words and he gave the blonde the tiniest of nods. At his words about another way in she was shrinking her bow down and the red head watched in silence a moment as she told him to lead the way. He eyed her for a moment longer, this was going better than he had expected it would, he had half expected her to try to find a way to keep him out of this thanks to her fear of losing him.

    Yet this mess with Lian was their business, they both deserved to be there, they both needed to be there and together they'd be able to prevent something bad happening to the other. After a moment he was moving, forcing himself to stay slow so she could follow him, reaching the edge the building he pointed to a metal fire escape which alongside it had a metal air vent grate drilled into the wall. Even as he pointed he spoke"I believe you have the tools to remove the metal grate... Some kinda arrow to corrode the metal perhaps?" His voice was serious now, fixed on the mission and for a moment he considered scrambling down the big drop onto the fire escape before his pale green gaze fixed on something else, there was a security camera covering the fire escape so casually he added"And since we're being stealthy... Do you have an arrow which can put that camera in some kind of time loop? Else we might loose the element of surprise if we have to break it.."

    "Glad to hear it and I wouldn't have it any other way" Artemis hissed back with a smile. That's why she wasn't fussing about Wally being here right now, he had a right to be. This was about family even if he won 'favourite uncle' by default unless Roy had some unknown siblings back home.

    Moving to peek over the edge of the roof, she frowned on seeing the security camera. It was at times like this she really wished Dick was here like on this particular mission, he could have handled that fast. Glancing back at Wally, she whispered a reply "I do have one arrow that can short-circuit it without causing too much damage. From there, I can use a second arrow on the vent cover as I got one that can handle that sort of job"

    That said, she got her bow back out and quickly prepped it before reaching back to find the right arrow. Leaning forward, she took a moment to get her aim straight as the camera below them kept swivelling left and right to cover the entire alley...
