"Richie! Why didn't you tell me that Hotstreak liked guys? We could have been dating weeks ago!"
"Um, I kind of did. I told you exactly that three times or did you think that I meant something else by, "I'm pretty sure he's bi?" the blond retorted. "What did you want? A spreadsheet and a diagram?"
"If it got the point across, then yes!" Virgil exclaimed.
"Or he could have just tried skywriting; I've heard that's hard to miss," Hotstreak interjected with a laugh.
"How long have you been standing there?"
"Long enough. Seriously, babe. If Richie told you like he told me then it's our own faults for being dense," the redhead said. "Lay off the poor guy. It's not his fault we're idiots."
"Thank you," Richie told him. "How'd you like to be my new best friend? I think I might have an opening."
"What? Hey! I'm not that bad. What if I get you a boyfriend?" Virgil asked. "Can I have my spot back then? There's this super cute alien helping out the Justice League."
"Really? Tell me more."
However, before the other metahuman could, Hotstreak interrupted. "And how would you know that?"
"Shit! Um... so, there's something that I should probably tell you," Virgil said. He stammered a bit more before finally blurting out, "I'm Static."
"What?! Are you joking?"
"No, please don't be mad. I should have told you sooner but there was never a good time," the other teen started. He looked ready to drop to his knees and beg but then Hotstreak suddenly started cackling.
"I'm just fucking with you, babe. I knew that. It’s kind of obvious."
"What?!" This time it was Virgil's turn to shout. "But how? What about my doppelganger?"
"You mean that trick you pulled in high school?" the redhead asked. "Yeah, that threw me for a bit. But you look exactly the same as Sparky, my hair sometimes stands on end when we make out, and you have a copy of his superhero outfit in your closet. Plus I never see you anytime that he's around - so, like I said... obvious."
"Well, shit. I guess it is," the other teen replied. "You really don't mind?"
"Are you kidding? I think it's hot as fuck. In fact, I'm glad you finally told me because there are quite a few things that I've been dying to try out."
"Oh, yeah? Like what?"
"I've got a whole list, babe, don't you worry. Why don't you come over here so that we can check off number one?" Hotstreak said, reaching out for Virgil and Richie took that as his cue to leave. He would have to ask V about the hot alien later; his friend clearly had better things on his mind right now.
