She smiles and waves at the other girl “Oh— heya, Donna. How’ve you been?”
“Pretty good, you know, fighting crime, hanging out on Themyscira. You?”
“Ah— not much in Gotham lately, so I’m taking the chance to just lean more toward college. Diana’s doing alright, I assume? Bats isn’t exactly that open about League activities.”
“Oh, yeah, Diana’s fine.” Donna confirms, grinning. “Is he /ever/ open about anything? I swear, he’s stricter than Galatea.” She pauses, realizing Babs would have no idea who that was, and elaborates. “…She’s just a very strict teacher.” the Amazon adds on.
“Being open isn’t exactly his thing.” Babs chuckles lightly. “And… I’m guessing you’re not talking about the Greek myth Galatea… guy falls in love with statue— Aphrodite brings her to life…??”
“Hm…? Oh! No, no.” Donna shakes her head, grinning. “Just a hardass archery teacher by the same name. I have no idea if Galatea and Pygmalion was an actual event, or PR made by Aphrodite.”
“You want to sell me now? That’s new. Getting a little threadbare on money?” Donna makes her best ‘fuck you’ face, lips curling away from her teeth in disgust. “You can’t break me like you break a wild horse.”
“You’ll be surprised of what I can do, dear Donna.” Circe sneered “I have broken many minds, and smashing yours into bits wont be a problem…and if that doesn’t work.” she chuckled to herself.
Donna snorts. “There’s a reason I got the Lasso of Persuasion instead of the Lasso of Truth like Diana. I don’t get broken. I don’t lose hope. I don’t run out of will. So good luck breaking my brain.”
It could’ve been considered a rather early time of day to be out, but this was circus life- on the road. No early was too early for Jack, and even most of the acts, to get rolling and get things set up. Haly’s Circus has just arrived in town and planned on staying at least until the next day, depending on the demand for their performances- this wasn’t a planned tour, after all.
Dick was in his practice uniform with a jacket on over it, hands stuffed into his pockets and shoulders hunched- was a bit cold this morning. Walking along, he stumbled into someone, quickly backing up to give them space. “I-I am so sorry. Didn’t mean to, uh… run into you like that. My bad…”
“No, it’s okay, I—” Donna blinks, staring down at him before she shakes her head. “…Sorry, you just look a lot like someone I know.” The Amazon smiles, offering one hand for a handshake, her cuffs catching the light. “I’m Donna.”
He smiles back and takes her hand, looking up at her. “Really, it’s not a big deal. Nice to meet you, Donna. Name’s Dick.”
“…Huh. Well, good to meet you too. Are you from that circus camping out nearby, or going to it?”
