-Conner has thought about this ever since M’gann mentioned in passing that they haven’t been on a date in awhile. He’s heard stories about how relationships fizzle out because the romance was lost and that’s definitely not what he wants to happen. He heads over to M’gann’s room and hesitantly knocks on the door. Somehow asking her this in person seems like a better although nerve-racking idea.-
Hey M’gann? How’d you like to go on a date, you know, with me?
-Opening the door, a little bemused by the sudden suggestion but pleased nonetheless! She smiles and plays with the doorknob as she talks.-
Right now? I mean, sure! I haven’t really been doing anything, so… Did you have any ideas about what to do?
-He smiles and shifts his weight from one foot to the other- I mean, yeah if you wanted to go now, yeah. I actually heard a pretty good idea recently. We go to the airport and choose our weekend destination from there. We’ll be back in time for school and everything. You interested?
Wow, that sounds really fun… Can we go? I’ve never been on an airplane before, I mean, other than the bioship or a spaceship or something, but never a plane. Let’s go! I don’t really need to pack, because I can make whatever clothes I want, so, whenever you’re ready?
Yeah! Okay, I already kinda packed a bag in case you said yes… -shifts his eyes to the ground but takes her hand and kisses her cheek- C’mon! We can zeta to New York and take something from there! -As he leads her towards the zetatubes and pats Wolf on the head goodbye, he squeezes her hand and commands the computer to start up the zetas and send another reminder to the team that he and M’gann were going to be off duty that weekend-
Okay, let’s go! -takes hand, turning around to yell back into the cave in case anyone was there- BYE EVERYONE! SEE YOU LATER!
-Recognized, B04 Superboy, B05 Miss Martian-
-Walking out of a discrete hiding place and into JFK airport- Seems like the international terminal. Sooo, where do we look to see all of the flights?
Uhh -scans the terminal, looking for any signs of help- There are the help desks! Maybe someone there can help us. -With her hand still in his, he guides them through the masses and eventually they get to the desk- Uh hi? My girlfriend and I were hoping we could get tickets for erm… anywhere?
JFK employee: Excuse me, sir, but what was your destination? You need a desired location before buying a ticket.
Uhh, see, erm… we’re not really sure where we’d want to go. Just whatever you have that is really cheap and leaving soonish… like within the hour? -telepathically to M’gann- Maybe I should’ve thought this through before approaching her. Whoops.
-Don’t worry, Superboy, we’ll figure it out. I mean, we’ve done so much stuff that’s WAY harder than figuring this out, right?-
What’s the cheapest, soonest-leaving flight?
JFK employee: -sighs and checks her computer- We have a flight into Heathrow, London leaving in 40 minutes. Do you have any bags to check, sir and miss?
Just doing carry on with this. -He raises the duffel bag so she can see and he starts the paperwork so they can get their tickets. Once everything was taken care of, Conner leads them to the only empty seats and sighs in relief- That worked out better that I expected. -He smiles and checks the time- They should be calling us in soon…
I’ve never been to London… The only traveling I do is when we go on missions, you know? I feel like I have hardly seen earth at all! -She giggles excitedly, leaning her head on his shoulder- I’m really happy you suggested this, Superboy. It’s nice to get away for a little bit, and you’re the person I would want to go with. So… thanks.
