A knock on the door can be heard from the kitchen in which Alfred is sitting in at the time. He opened it and two females in Greek beige dresses walked through. " Welcome to the manor. Master Bruce, we have guests!" A young boy wearing dark blue pants and a grey long sleeved shirt got up to go see who they were. The girl looked around before hearing his footsteps and readying herself for him. "I hope you had no trouble getting here." "Not at all. We've decided to take our best chariot. It's able to thrive in the worst weather."
As he turned the corner, the children's blue eyes locked for a full minute. " Sir, I'd like you to meet Hippolyta and her daughter, Diana. I met the former last week and invited them to dinner." Bruce eyed the woman and said hi before walking away. " Set the table. I'll be there later." All three of them were about to have the best beef stew from a very skilled gentleman. A steaming bowl was placed in front of them when Diana was wondering where Bruce was and smiled when he walked in a minute after, sitting opposite of each other with the adults doing the same. The young girl looked at him a couple times with the first being when she slowly placed the spoon in her mouth. For Bruce, it was once. "Sir, perhaps you should give Diana a tour." Alfred said with a follow-up by Hippolyta. " Stay close to him, my daughter. The size of this mansion is tremendous." Bruce got up and Diana did exactly when she said. " I know, mother." Bruce took her to the room with his bloodline placed upon the wall. After he was done explaining who each of them are and was starting to move on, Diana made him turn around by just placing a hand on his shoulder while smiling as much as she could. "You're a knight...you have the blood of noble warriors within you." She spread her legs and got into a stance, proudly putting a hand on her chest. "I am a princess." Bruce raised his right brow. "It's true..." He crossed his arms. "Hm...do you have any proof?" Diana grabbed his hand and placed something on it. "Here. I doubt you've seen this type of gold coin among the others you know of." Bruce flipped it over and tried to hand it back to her, but she put up a hand to stop him. "You may keep it." Bruce placed the coin in his pocket. "Fine, but where do you come from, Diana? Judging by the clothes you and your mother wear, the look of that chariot and this coin..." Diana laughed a bit. "It's a very special and unique place. An island called Themyscira.
Meanwhile...back in the kitchen, a conversation is taking place between two parents.
"It's wonderful that Bruce is the most famous here just like Diana back home." Hippolyta said. "Indeed. If Gotham had a monarchy he'd be a prince..." He looked down remembering what happened a month ago. "...a king in waiting." The queen smiled. "Bruce certainly lives like royalty." She knew what that look meant and her smile faded. "It's a terrible burden no child should have to carry." Alfred raised his head in a sigh. "He's the one who witnessed it. I'd carry the entirety of that burden just for him. If only..." She squeezed his hand. "Goddess..." Bruce and Diana walk into the living room and it was the last place to show her. He watched closely moved around and observed. "I hope you enjoyed it here, princess. This is the final room." She was moving around and back to him. Diana grabbed his hand and moved to the couch. "Bruce if I was ever in danger you'd come to my rescue, right? Just like in those stories." "Why? Are you in danger now? Is there something happening w-" She put a hand on his mouth and giggled. "No. I'm currently being trained." Bruce shifted his head to her. "I see. In what way?" Diana smirked. "All ways. It's going well. But what about you? Do you plan on following in your ancestor's footsteps?" There was something in Bruce's eyes...something of sheer determination when he turned his head to the largest picture of two people in the room. "Yes. I made a promise to them. I'm going to be training just like you. In all ways." Diana asked him who they are, but Hippolyta called out for her to come before he could answer. Bruce followed her to the door.
"She seems to have taken quite a liking to the boy because her eyes were on him more than the other way around." Alfred laughed hearing this. "So you've noticed the spark. Both of them can relate to one another in how they've been brought up. They're prodigies." The butler and queen stood in front of the door waiting for them to come along. "Are you going to show me your home the next time we meet?" She grabbed her wrist behind her back. "I'd love to. You live in a beautiful castle, Bruce. I know I'll return one day." Diana stood by her mother and Bruce by Alfred. "Your highness, I hope master Bruce became the most delightful guide for you." Alfred spoke. "He has. Must we leave now, mother? I wish to stay longer." Diana said with positivity on her face. "You may come back here when you finish your tasks. Thank you for letting us stay here, Bruce." He looked up at her. "It's a pleasure. Especially with people who have such an important position." Diana stood in front of Bruce as close as she could while Alfred opened the door. "Thank you for your time, Bruce Wayne." She placed both hands on his shoulders and kissed his left cheek. Bruce's eyes widened and his face red. Their eyes locked once more as her chariot lifted up into the sky. "Well, do you like her? You needed a friend other than myself." He stepped back. "Yes. Diana is...Wonderful. I'll have to give her something before I see her again.
"I know how you feel about Bruce, my daughter. Would you like to tell me how much he is to your liking?" She bounced with joy. "Mother! He's marvelous! Bruce also appeared to have something on his mind...I saw a man and woman. Who are they? "Hippolyta's face became one of sorrow. Being hesitant, she explained, and Diana erupted. "WHAT?! NO! How could you commit something that's so atrocious!? It's unforgivable!! What will happen to Bruce!? There must b-" "DIANA!" She grabbed her. "Listen to me...there is nothing to be done for them...the best thing you can do for him is be his friend. There's great evil outside of the island which made me give great thought to whether I should bring you out here or not because there are those who only care for themselves and are not capable of love for another." Diana tightly gripped her favorite dress with both hands and stained it greatly by crying for the rest of the way back. "Bruce......."

Not a bad little story, I would suggest working on your paragraph structure as it was a little difficult to read in parts.
