Alfred, Barbara, cake, Dick, friends, Gabby, Helena, ice cream, jujubes, Kyle....

So, Dinah had an almost alphabetic list of things to be thankful for on her 19th birthday. Including tickets to a bike rally next week, and a promise from Jason that maybe they'd enter one of the races.

Yay birthday!

[open for phone calls, e-mails and/or visits]

Dinah snorted a laugh, and grinned over at Helena. "Tell her she'll get a ride in a Ferrari if she visits New Gotham."

And you too, Jaime.

"I'm not telling her that. At least not unless I can get something from her."

Smirk-y smirk-smirk.

"You are so an older brother, jeeeez." Dinah rolled her eyes. "She's ten, what can she get for you?"

"Well, good point. I suppose I'll have to wait until she's older to inform her about that little option..."

"You're meeeean," Dinah sing-songed, then grinned and sat down to her cake. "Did you guys do anything cool for your birthday, or did you skate by it again?"

"Momoko got my a really nice present, and we kind of... just had a little party by ourselves."

Jaime flushed a bit at the memory.

"Oh, reeeeally," Dinah said, sliding a look over to Kyle that had him fumbling his spoon. "That's nice? Good? Nice and good." She grinned and took a bite of ice cream. She did not say, planning on that for later this week because no, Jaime didn't need to know that.

"Yeah." That was all he was going to say, too.

Feelings too subtle for words welled up, but Dinah stuck with, "Wish I could be there, or you could be here."

...yeah.

It was still, in some ways, too soon for that, but... Jaime felt a little pang, too.

"I miss you, too," he said softly. "Maybe next year?"

"Next year," Dinah agreed. "Maybe not a road trip, but something." Her lips quirked. "Driving the Ferrari, maybe."

"No! None of your friends get to!"

"At least if Helena's in town..."

Jaime grinned. "Sounds good to me. I'll be finishing up my first semester, so... I'll probably need the break."

"Then plan on visiting New Gotham for a few days. I promise it will go better than last time," Dinah said firmly.

...although paying for a hotel room for him, instead of putting him up at the Clocktower, would probably be smart.

"That sounds like a really good plan."

And he could pay for his own hotel room.

But he was the guest! And Helena owned some hotels!

"Cool." Dinah licked whipped cream off her spoon. "I'll see you guys at Graduation lots sooner though. I'll be the one enabling your mom with the camera."

Muahahah.
