Baltimore harbor, Thursday evening
"Sooooo... remind me again, Robin, how did you find out about this?" Dinah paused. "Robin One. Or... yeah."

The boats in the harbor were mostly looking very legal, neutral, not worrying. Except for the cargo boat they were keeping an eye on from the roof of a nearby warehouse.

Dinah's binox weren't showing anything illegal yet, but the night was young.

[for two Robins and a Blossom, and NFB due to distance.]

Tim shook his head. "Robin One is someone else. Call me... I don't know. Red Robin, maybe. I pulled up a few articles about activity in the area and followed leads until I found this."

"Robin and Red Robin. That ought to work," Jason said, from where he was watching the boats. He wasn't Robin One either, but he wasn't going to argue the point more. "I swear, if there was ever a harbor where someone wasn't doing something illegal, I think I'd have a heart attack."

"Well, the one on the Island doesn't ever seem to have anything-- but then again, imagine if it did," Dinah said, in her Canary outfit, focusing in on two men talking on the deck. "Do we have any good ideas about what they're smuggling past the harbormaster?"

"Boxes. Lots of boxes. And a few men walking around the deck looking out to sea every once in a while, but not much else." Blossom landed softly, just a bit behind them. "They didn't seem to be caring much about the boxes, and at least one had a gun. A big one."

"Better assume they're all armed," Tim said. He studied the ship through a small pair of batnoculars binoculars. "We need evidence. The cops won't come out on a hunch. Are there any unguarded boxes?"

Jason had his own binoculars out, and peered out at the ship. "It looks like some of them are, yeah," he said. "Either the guards are stupid about their positioning, or they really don't care."

"If they're waiting on a shipment, and we can get photos and video of it, then upload it to the police--" Dinah said, thinking aloud. "That would work, wouldn't it?"

Twenty Minutes Later...

... Dinah was sitting in their favorite diner, listening to the sirens buzz by, and studying the menu. "Burger. Definitely a burger." She put down her and grinned at the other three. "High fives all around?"

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

Jason was still riding on an adrenaline high from the evening's fun, even after sitting down for a bit. "Definitely. That was awesome," he said. "And hunger-inducing, yeah."

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

Tim smiled. "Good work, guys. Dinner's on me." He looked through the menu. "Ooh, mushroom bacon Swiss burger! I'm getting that."

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

"The fighting and the rescue at the end totally made up for all the waiting, I agree. I'm still not used to that part of this job." Blossom looked over her menu at Robin. "Eh? You're buying?"

It would totally be wrong to order something expensive, right?

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

Knowing how well he could afford it? Dinah had no qualms.

"Bacon cheddar burger, steak fries, chocolate shake," she decided with a grin. She gave Blossom a look of affectionate amusement. "We've been doing this since January, and you still hate that part. You're lucky none of the supervillains in your hometowns are sneaky. Or hard to spot." She grinned at the Robins. "She got kidnapped by Riddler when we visited New Gotham. But he was on one of his really obvious tears, not being subtle at all."

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

Jason made a sympathetic noise at the mention of the Riddler. "Yeah, I don't like the sitting around and waiting part either, but if it ends with me getting to take some bad guys out, I figure it's worth it in the end," he said.

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

"It's part of the job," Tim shrugged. "None of the bad guys are sneaky where you're from?" he asked Blossom. "How do you know they're not just evading you?"

Re: Twenty Minutes Later...

"CanAAAARyyyy!" Blossom hissed, kicking her under the table a few times. "That was only because I couldn't transform! Don't make it sound like I'm a horrible superhero!"

She sighed and looked back at the boys. "Back home I don't get called until the monsters are actually attacking. I don't fight regular criminals."
