Dick is a little too close, and a little too observant, to miss that. But he waits until they're out of the shop to say anything. He mumbles, "You didn't have to get both, you know."

That strikes a chord deep in Dick's chest and he sobers, nods, then squeezes Elliot's hand. "Thanks, then," he says, honestly but trying for brightly at the same time.

"Besides, I'm sure we'll swim together again," Jerel adds. "And those ones might start hurting my eyes at some point." He squeezes Dick's hand back, though.

"Please," Dick snorts, grateful for the shift in conversation. "Like you would get sick of these. This is fashion perfection, are you actually joking? I love these things."

Dick puts a hand on his chest, mock-offended, gasping. "Are you commenting on my taste, Elliot? Tsk," he shakes his head. "Not the best move for a pre-date, no siree."

"Such a gentleman," Dick says, smiling, and goes through.

(D'you think we should skip on a little? Maybe on to - hm. Another Nightwing and Bodyshock encounter? Another date? Up to you~ Also, I should actually eat something instead of thinking about it, so I'm going to do that and then watch a few things and then bed. I should technically bed now, since I have writing group on the morrow, but ... I'm an idiot? Heh.)

(Skipping ahead sounds good. Let's say Dick probably narrowly beat Jerel in laps; Jerel's good naturally, but Dick's stamina is through the roof, and so on. Anyway: Jerel's planning on making his first lift that night, so we might as well go into that. Also: YOLO who needs sleep
Razz)

Jerel takes a nap after he gets home from the gym; swimming so much wore him out, and he needs to be in top shape for tonight. When he wakes, he eats something and suits up. Just as it gets fully dark, he heads out. Mostly he sticks to rooftops, but he's no Nightwing; he also hijacks a car for a while, to get him up the hills into the wealthy residential district.

He's staked out this place for two weeks now. Jerel knows their movements, and he's read their emails. He knows they'll be out. This should be the easiest job of the lot--the security system is absolute crap. He vaults over the fence (no need to short it out, unnecessary attention-grabbing) and walks across the lawn, moving from shadow to shadow. There are no dogs, no guards. They rely entirely on electronic systems.

Jerel used to short out his parents' security system when he sneezed. This one is more complex, but all it takes is a hand on the relay box and he can see how the wires spread around the house, he can see how he can short out each camera as he moves through, or how he can just walk in the blind spots--wait.

He can see the code to deactivate the system.

With a snort, he keys it in and slips inside the house.

(Noooooooo staying up is a terrible idea. I'm so tiiiiired. I'm only really staying up because, well, I get to play around with pretty boys and their emotions - and I hadn't eaten for a very long time and if I go to sleep now, after eating, I'll feel ill. Bluh. YOLO MY ASS I'm fragile :P)

Nightwing is hanging over whatever doorway Bodyshock tries to leave through, having tracked him since he stole the car. "Woah. You're really making out like a bandit tonight, Volts. I almost feel bad about stopping you. I bet you're real proud of yourself," he swings down and lands in front of Bodyshock. "Well. Almost."

(So--are you staying up or not?)

Bodyshock sighs--half with envy at how graceful Nightwing is, and half irritated, because he fucking knew this was too easy. He sets the painting down carefully, leaning it against the wall. "Volts? Really? That's what you're gonna call me?"

(Iiiiiii'm staying up for a little while, yes. For as long as it takes to watch Glee and download Community and maybe watch those. So a while, heh. But I shouldn't, is what I am saying.)

"Look, buddy, I'm doing you a favour," Nightwing replies easily. "Bodyshock. Bodyshock. Mm. Don't get me wrong, I know how difficult it is to pick a themed name but..." He shrugs, seemingly causal and unaware, but he's keeping his eyes on Bodyshock at all times, waiting for either a chance to strike or to dodge.

"Because 'Nightwing' strikes fear into the hearts of Bludhaven's seedy underworld," Bodyshock snorts. He flattens his hand on the wall and blacks out the house. Then he ducks--anticipating a lunge from Nightwing--grabs the painting and takes off back into the expensive maze that was a house.

Nightwing swears quietly to himself, and is running after Bodyshock and switching his lenses to night vision at the same time. "Nightwing has 'night' in it, you know," he calls out conversationally. "That's pretty scary. Yours still sounds like a stripper's name."

Bodyshock bites his tongue as long as he can. He vaults onto the dining room table, grabs the chandelier and pulls himself up, working his new muscles to get up into the high rafters. He stashes the painting up there, near a skylight. Then he leaps from one beam to another, heart in his throat as he jumps.

Then he says, "People like strippers."

This is because he wants Nightwing to know where he is, to look at him. Because once Nightwing does, Bodyshock makes the lights flash, strobe, as he drops to the ground and takes off again.

"Ngh!" Nightwing stumbles, but pushes through, following some kind of blob that he's hoping is Bodyshock and his heat signature stuff is picking up on. He hopes against hope until his vision comes back and he stops feeling like he's going to get sick. "Hey, BS, you know you really need to work on your people skills if you're gonna go into that business? Because I can tell you right now - your conversation sucks."

Bodyshock watches Nightwing weave and sway, and he considers how Nightwing's whole suit is packed to the rafters with electronics. He could fry the whole thing, with Nightwing inside--but he might need that trick at some other time, and he can get away just fine right now. He gets behind Nightwing, crouching and edging past, then stands.

He kicks Nightwing solidly in the centre of his back. "Conversation's not what a stripper's paid for," he points out, then runs for the door, lights still strobing.

Nightwing manages to take the kick and use the momentum to flip himself over without tumbling, but can only barely make out the shape that he has to follow. He does, of course, but he feels like a failure before he's even out of the door.

Bodyshock glances back and sees that Nightwing is still following him. That's one stubborn hero. Bodyshock concentrates, and feels out the garage in the spiderweb of electronics spread out behind him. The garage door lifts and two sportscars speed out. There are five cars in the garage but he can only control two of them--two is enough, anyway, for slicing across the pristine lawns and cutting between him and Nightwing.

Nightwing has to flip, again, backwards and out of the way of the cars. He swears, blinking into the dark. Bodyshock got too far away for his tracker to follow. "Ohh, that is just awesome, Nightwing. Gold star. Three Bat-thumbs way, way up for letting him get away," he scolds himself quietly, then goes into the house to clean up then call and wait for the cops to arrive before he can get back on the trail.

Jerel dumps the car he'd used in a small cul-de-sac and snags another. There's another house on the other edge of the suburb that he can break into on short notice, and three highrises in the city. He is not going home empty handed tonight. He didn't get laid today; he /is/ going to lay his hands on some nice art.

He decides to head back into the city. He can leave this suburb for a few weeks, let Nightwing drop his guard.

Figures that the hero would be protecting the rich folk.

Nightwing paces around the ruined garden - after pushing the cars back into the garage - until the cops get there. At least he didn't have to wait long; the cops always come quickly for the rich folk. It's one of the things he's trying to stop happening on the force, but there's only so much one 'rookie' can do. He sticks around long enough to give them what they need, then takes off to the city for Bodyshock. He might be able to find him at some point if he's still out, and Nightwing thinks he's agitated enough to do so.

And, hey, even if he doesn't then he'll be able to stop a few petty crimes along the way. Maybe work out some stress from losing.

Bodyshock swaps cars four times. You can never be too careful, and besides, he likes the feel of sliding into the electronics of a car, all that power under his hands. He gets off on his own power, sometimes.

But not tonight. He enjoys it, but it doesn't distract him from the prize--prizes. Four artworks in three apartments. All of them rather better protected than the artworks on estates, simply because they were high up in the air. He lets the flow of the traffic pick which building he goes for, and tries to remember where the service elevator is for the chosen one.

If Nightwing comes after him again, Bodyshock is going to fry his suit. He's not gonna kill Nightwing, but he is going to get something out of tonight.

Nightwing can only follow so far, since he's relying on his suit's computers to scan security feeds and finds Bodyshock. Most of the time, it works. It's the same stuff that all the Bats use - but then again, most of the time the person that they're following can't tell the security cameras to look the other way. He, eventually, starts following a trail using stolen and abandoned cars and busted security feeds -- but gets to the (last) apartment too late.

It looks like he just missed the wiley bastard, too. Anyone watching can probably see the lines of shaking rage and frustration coursing through him, even if he stays quiet. Just for a moment. Then he makes his way to the roof to head back home.

Bodyshock stashes the painting in one of his caches, in case he's being followed. If there's something tonight's taught him, it's that he's easy to track--he must be, for Nightwing to show up at the very house he was going to rob. Maybe he needs to work on that--read up on stealth, practice some more.

He doesn't know what his feelings are doing when he goes to bed. Successful pre-date with Dick--but as Elliot. Successful theft--after a narrow escape.

Yeah. He needs more practice. He used to be so good, too, before Nightwing showed up. The guy's incredible. Bodyshock is thoroughly jealous of his skills.

Nightwing lands on a roof in the middle of Bludhaven's south side, and Dick Grayson climbs into the window. He, angrily, undresses and throws himself into the shower. He can get a few hours of sleep before he has to be up for work, then he can call Elliot. He wants to now but - he glances at the clock on the wall when he gets out of the shower. Ugh. Normal people aren't awake at this time. Dick just needs something to take his mind off being such a damned failure tonight. He knows that listening to Elliot's voice, listening to someone who wants him and - right now - doesn't think he's a failure will make him feel better.

He also knows it's stupid. He knows how dumb it is to want to take comfort in the poor guy who has no idea what a wreck Dick is.

Bodyshock still considers himself that until he strips out of his suit--as soon as the shivery, smooth material hits the floor, Jerel Stillhaven takes a deep breath of polluted air and stretches. The suit probably helps conduct and channel his power, so once it's off, it's like he's free again, and he can really inhabit every wire and lightbulb of his apartment.

He glances at his phone as he curls up in bed. Dick hasn't rung him, or texted him. The thought of texting makes Jerel climb out of bed again--stark naked--and he snaps a photo of the Bludhaven night skyline out his window. His thumb hovers over sending it to Dick, and he hesitates for a long moment before just hitting 'send'. Whatever. Maybe Dick will assume he was out clubbing and now he's sending drunk messages or something. Maybe Dick's dead asleep and he'll wake to a pretty picture. Doesn't matter. It's sent now, no take-backs.

Dick's phone buzzes on the nightstand and he sits up, instantly worried, and reaches for it. His expression softens, then blooms into a grin. See, how can he not constantly think about Elliot when the man has such perfect timing? He thumbs a message back, tension easing out of his shoulders straight away and leaning back into his pillows and blanket.

"Morning, gorgeous."

To familiar? He's just kissed Elliot, after all. But he is gorgeous. It's not a lie. Maybe too familiar. ...Dick pauses, then sends. Fuck it. It's probably best to scare him off early, anyway.

Re: [MitzX] Bludhaven's Annual Policeman's Ball and Fine Art Auction

Jerel wraps his arms around his pillow, yawning. He beams when his phone goes off. Dick's still awake--or woken up. Hopefully he's not ticked off about Jerel waking him up, if he did... Jerel opens the message and his smile widens even more.

"Gorgeous?" he whispers to himself, and possibly hugs his pillow.

Oh, stop, you'll make me blush. Is it morning yet?

Dick has to smile fondly at the response. He's seen Elliot blush, even if it was for a second. It's a good look on him. He bites his lip and texts back.

Morning for me soon, anyway. You just hitting the hay, party animal? What kind of night did boring Officer Grayson miss?

Boring Officer Grayson makes Jerel think of Dick as a stripper, and since he's seen Dick in swimming trunks--he thoroughly enjoyed the thought.

Busy one. Met up with a friend, did some dancing. So tired. Well, it was technically dancing. He's wondering if Dick'll get Jerel's case in the morning. You pulled an early morning shift? :(

Am I keeping you up? I bet you didn't think I'd be awake. I have to go into work in a few hours for a little bit, yeah. Do some paperwork. Glamorous lifestyle, you know how it is.

He has to file reports, himself being his only witness to Bodyshock tonight, and everyone knows that Dick doesn't mind doing paperwork. In truth, he hates it. Everyone hates it. But that's why they'll always give theirs over to the eager rookie who enjoys that crap; it helps him control the vigilantism and it lets him keep an eye on crooked dealings in the force.

There's no intern you can hand that off to? TV has not prepared me for the glamorous life of a cop. Yeah, thought you'd wake up to a nice picture in a few hours. Why are you awake? Jerel has to wonder; if Dick has to be up in a few hours, shouldn't he be sound asleep? Maybe he doesn't sleep well, insomniac kind of thing.

Dick huffs a quiet laugh and pushes himself up to sit properly. He should sleep. Should. But he's not going to, apparently. Some things are a little more important.

Not that he's saying that Elliot has taken that slot in his life yet. That'd be crazy. But it really is nice to be able to talk to someone after patrol, again. That's important.

lol I am the intern :p We don't really have interns. Just us poor rookies. I'm a pretty light sleeper, so I kept waking up in the night. Usually annoying. This time I lucked out. Nice.

You're okay with me disturbing your sleep? ;) Jerel flirts a little bit, feeling giddy--that may be the tiredness speaking, but also the whole idea of speaking to someone. At all. When he's not playing a part for one of his jobs, or at the clinic, Jerel doesn't speak to anyone at all. He doesn't have anyone to speak to. So it's nice, especially at this silent hour of the night, to not feel quite so... alone.

Dick's stomach flips like he's just jumps off a building and he scolds himself. Silly bird, what the hell. It's just a winkyface. He rolls his shoulder, utterly mortified with himself. Kind of shows how long it's been since someone's flirted with him like this. Verbally, sure, he can take it. He's probably a little too used to it for it to be normal. But this is - different.

It takes him a little longer to reply, going through a few responses before going straight back to his first and hitting send. I don't feel all that disturbed. Unless that's some kinda promise you're making.

"Ugh," he says under his breath. "What does that even mean, Grayson. What happened to you. You used to be good at this."

Jerel laughs into his pillows. He could make some kind of joke about Dick being disturbed here, but that's what he'd do if he was intending on being friends with the guy. Instead, he taps out, I could get used to disturbing your sleep, sure.

Dick exhales sharply. He'd been holding it in, worried about the response like some kind of hyped up teen. Fuck, he's lucky he didn't have texting when he was hormonal. He would have been a complete wreck. But Elliot's a nice guy, letting him away with that pitiful excuse at flirting.

I could get used to that. You should take pictures all the time. Great way to wake up. He hits send. Then, in a fit of honesty: Can you tell it's been a while since I flirted? I'm pretty damned sure it's obvious. How about this: I'm super into you and I think I wanna get drinks a little sooner than planned. Not tonight...or, I guess, after the morning. But tomorrow. Maybe dancing? I'm a terrible dancer, you'll love it.

Jerel's grin widens again. Score! Drinking, dancing--an excellent way to get close to each other, a sweaty, fun way. Sooner works for me. Will you wear your swim trunks? Or do you have a place in mind with a dress code?

Additionally, he's already considering photos he could take to send to Dick.

Dick snorts, smiling stupidly. He has to congratulate himself here. It's going well. It could have gone terribly. Tell you, what, gorgeous. I might wear them under my pants. I might not. You'll have to guess.

Jerel buries his grin in the pillows, enjoying the thought of that. Or I could investigate. Unless you've got a monopoly on being a detective, Mr. Officer Grayson sir.

That makes Dick laugh, a short burst of sound in the silent room. If only Elliot knew. Welp, time to put on the lying cap. Hey, I'm no detective. It's gonna have to be all on you, you know. Investigation. Interrogating. All those good things.
