Outside the Clocktower, New Gotham City, Friday evening
Dinah checked her watch, checked the alley, and really hoped the portal would be on time, and that Triela had remembered to catch it. Maybe she should've called?

[for an Italian gun girl]

"Thank you," she responded with a polite nod.

And, to be fair, she was pretty skinny.

"We have lime chicken stir-fry, along with spring rolls, I do hope that's acceptable to you," Alfred said, giving her his small, reserved smile. "Will you be having dessert, Miss Dinah?"

"We're going out as soon as we've stoked up the engines," Dinah said, sitting down and pouring water for herself and Triela. "And Barbara's doing her usual thing. You'd probably better take her a plate, or she'll forget again."

"Stir-fry is just fine." Triela smiled politely.

Alfred heaped a huge dish for her, added noodles and spring rolls, set it down along with four kinds of dipping sauce, then did the same for Dinah. Then went off to chivvy Barbara into ingesting something she might barely notice.

Dinah applied herself with gusto, and after a few minutes of eating, she tentatively said, "So, there's a concert tomorrow afternoon, at Robinson Park. Kyle could meet us there." Despite the memory of her time there with Jaime, she still liked the band area. "You up for that?"

Triela ate slowly. She wasn't that hungry, really. Even though the food was pretty good.

"That sounds like it could be fun."

Dinah restrained herself from poking Triela to eat more, and bit into a spring roll. After a minute, she said, "Barbara has these brain-scan machines. I don't know-- maybe the doctors have already checked everything. But. If you wanted another opinion, she could do that real fast on Sunday, and then we could hang out at the campus until you have to go home." Said quickly, so quickly. Say yes, Triela...

"Sure," Triela shrugged. "If you want."

A huge smile for that, and something to hope for. Dinah dug back into her food, telling Triela about Robinson Park, and the campus, and Jump Club, in between bites of her food.

When she was finished, she wiped her mouth and picked up her plate. "We should do the dishes for Alfred, then bop out. Barbara will track us with my earrings if she needs us."

"Okay," Triela agreed, standing up and picking up her half-finished plate.

"You're sure you don't want more?" Dinah checked, biting her lip at the mistake. "Even if we go looking for ice cream or pastries, that might be a while..."

"I'm fine. I don't need to eat that much, you know."

"I don't think I did know that," Dinah said, but started cleaning up the mess from the food. "if you're sure..."

Alfred came in and tutted at them with only one pot left, and shooed them out to have fun.

"C'mon." Dinah stopped at the Clock first, though, to show Triela the view. "My city." The sun was just starting to set, lighting up the sky in pinks and golds. "Pick a building, we'll head there."

Triela looked out thoughtfully. "There." She pointed at an old Gothic-style building with a flat, open rooftop.

Dinah grinned. "One Metro Plaza; cop shop central, here we come."

She lead Triela out of the Clocktower and down onto the street, feet nearly dancing as they headed for the Metro station two blocks down. "A couple guys who work with us keep threatening to take me train-surfing on this too," she said, climbing the stairs up to the station. "But we would so get busted in four blocks, they monitor it pretty carefully."

She took a breath; it wouldn't help to avoid the subject. "Can I visit you, when you go back to Rome?"
