-Outside Diana's townhouse, Crown Lane, one hour later-
Since her shopping trip had not panned out because the one purchase she wanted to make was not the right size for her, Diana had decided to quit wasting time at the mall and go back home. Diana was standing outside her door and reaching to knock on the door to try and get Ami to let her in when she heard someone call her name. The voice was coming from her right.
Diana looked in that direction to see a dark-haired young woman approaching from the right. At first Diana thought that she was seeing Amber, but then she noticed that the dark-haired young woman had longer hair than Amber did. The huntress looked closer and noticed that the person approaching her was... Catherine Corvinus?
"DIANA!" The young woman called out. Diana took her hand out of her pocket and turned to face the young woman. Catherine was wearing her blue DJ Dynamo t-shirt and black gym shorts with white tennis shoes.
"Hey Diana! It's been awhile since we last met!" Catherine greeted Diana in a cheerful tone of voice. Diana blinked.
"Yeah, I know it's weird seeing me out in broad daylight." Catherine made a self-deprecating joke about her tendency to stay indoors most of the time. Diana gave a small smile and felt her malaise lift just a little.
"Hello, Catherine. It has been some time since we last met." Diana returned the greeting in a calm voice. Catherine smiled at her.
"Amber told me that you live here now. Is that your house?" Catherine asked, pointing towards the door Diana was standing in front of. Diana nodded.
"Mind if I come in for a few minutes?" Catherine asked Diana.
"Certainly. As soon as I can get the door open, you are welcome to come inside." Diana consented to Catherine dropping in. Diana turned her attention back to the door and knocked on it. Moments passed and no response from Ami.
Diana knocked on the door again. This time she could hear the sound of the lock being unlocked before the door opened.
"Oh, hi Diana!" Ami greeted Diana warmly.
"I apologize for that, Ami. It seems that I forgot to take my house keys with me when I left for Capital Coffee this morning." Diana apologized to Ami for forgetting her house keys and thus making her have to open the door.
"It's no problem, Diana. I'm here to help you!" Ami assured her that she did not mind opening the door for the blonde. The android looked over Diana's shoulder and saw Catherine standing just behind and to the left of Diana.
"This is my friend Catherine Corvinus." Diana introduced Ami to Catherine. The raven waved at Ami, who returned the wave.
"Don't just stand there. Come on in!" Ami bade them. Diana entered first followed by Catherine. When both young women entered the house Ami shut and locked the door behind them.
-Inside Diana's townhouse, the living room-
Diana walked into the living room as Catherine followed close behind. Ami brought up the rear and stood in the living room while Diana walked into her mini-kitchen. The raven looked around at Diana's place.
"Would you like something to drink, Catherine?" Diana offered a drink to the second guest to ever grace her home.
"Do you have any Strawberry Slam?" Catherine asked Diana. The blonde walked to her refrigerator and opened the doors. She peered inside and saw that she did not have any Strawberry Slam sodas, only Cherry Charge. Diana turned around to face Catherine, who was now standing a short distance to her left.
"I do not have any Strawberry Slam drinks, but I do have Cherry Charge. Would you like one?" Diana asked. Catherine nodded.
"Yeah, Cherry Charge will do the trick." Catherine expressed her willingness to accept a can of Cherry Charge. Diana turned to face the open refrigerator door and reached inside, grabbing a can with her right hand. She shut the door with her left hand and walked over to Catherine, presenting her with the canned drink. The raven gratefully accepted it.
"Thanks, Diana." Catherine thanked her hostess for the drink before opening the can and taking a swig of the cherry soda. She then faced Diana, who was still standing in the kitchen.
"I bet you wanna know what I'm doing in your neighborhood, huh?" Catherine asked Diana. Diana nodded. The blonde was genuinely curious as to why Catherine was in Crown Lane.
