Twelfth Pair

By Marcus L. Rowland

"Did I bite you?" Oz asks on the fire escape. He's back to his usual size, features still changing, clothes ragged.


"Good. Lycanthropy's infectious."

"What about vampire bites?"

"No." Faith tosses Oz a T-shirt as they reach the roof, says "Your flies are torn."

"Damn. Twelth pair this year."

"Nothing I haven't seen before. You look kinda ragged too."

Batman's clothes are ripped, Kevlar showing through the tears.

"Got anything in my size?"

"There's a straight line..."

"It can wait. We need to talk."

"That's my line," says a familiar voice. They turn.

Floating in mid-air, Superman's watching them.
