Part nine: Amanda Waller.
I am Amanda Waller, I work for the Defense department of the United States, A.R.G.U.S.
Yesterday, the colonel Tervor received an order from the president, the order consisted in the launch of a nuclear missile on the watchtower, home of the Justice League.
He refused and resigned from his job. I took over A.R.G.U.S and launched the missile.
According to my sources, Superman, Wonder woman, Black Lightning and Flash have been killed. We do not have news on Batman nor Element Woman, though we know they were in the tower. The nature of Element Woman makes it hard to determine her status.
We currently know that Atom and Firestorm were not in the tower.
Trevor managed to split his Justice League of America, which I counted upon to give us the advantage. We still have three good members: Vibe, whose loyalty to us is complete, green arrow, who is less certain, and Hawkman, who is the wild card.
I was about to get a hold on Cyborg, but someone appeared and took him, reports say it was Aquaman.
We have no idea about the lantern’s locations, although we managed to kill Simon Baz when he tried to escape the building.
We are tracking Deathstroke, his army of safe houses should come to an end one day.
I lost control of the suicide squad, it seems Deadshot helped them get rid of their bombs, but in their state… they shouldn’t go far.
The hero known as Captain marvel was easily taken down, with one shot of a nuclear missile.
When we found out about the identity of Batman, we immediately sent a troop in Gotham. The reports indicate the batcave was invaded, but the young man known as Red Hood and Batman’s butler managed to flee from it and destroy the cave. We deducted Red Hood was non other than Jason Todd, one of Bruce Wayne’s young adoptions, that had died. We also deducted the identities of all the Red Robins and all.
We tracked down the team known as the teen Titans, Vibe was sent there too, to take down Kid Flash. The reports show that Vibe did cut Flash from his speed, but the one known as Superboy took him down. We found the body of Superboy later, he was the sole victim of the missile sent to finish off the work. This means there still is three Titans left.
We have tried tracking the Red Hood, but he showed up by himself. He rescued Nightwing, who was believed away, and they took down our forces led by Green Arrow.
We have a serious problem there, if these three keep doing this, they are going to gather quite a team.
We did not find the occult team known as the Justice League Dark. These magical creatures are extremely dangerous, which is why most of our efforts are put into this.
All these failures listed above show one thing: our soldiers are weak, they can’t fight superhumans.
With only three superhumans on our side, we can’t win…
Which is why I am on my way to talk to the president about a protocol I created, that is supposed to make us get the advantage.
The major problem in all this, though, is Atlantis. If Aquaman saved Cyborg, it won’t be long before the whole atlantean army gets to war… against us. The last time Atlantis waged war on us… well we lost… I mean, we’d HAVE lost if the Justice league didn’t stop them…. And they almost got killed.
I am in the white house now, walking towards the Oval office. I do not feel comfortable. It may be because the man sitting here is not the one I have voted for… from what I know about him (and I know a lot of things), he will be reluctant. A good thing is, that I am quite good at persuading people.
I am pushing the door…
“mister president? I have something for you…”
previous part: Alfred
Part eight: Alfred:
I am Alfred Pennyworth, and I have been the Wayne’s butler for years. Recently my last master, Bruce, died. He left me alone, but he also left me with a suitcase in which was his plan.
Yet, I am on the run with a young man who used to be Robin, but now is Red hood, the criminal. Jason Todd came back from the dead and took it upon himself to pursue Batman’s mission, but go deeper.
We are most likely pursued by the army, although I am not sure they are aware of our current location. The first step of master Bruce’s plan is maybe the hardest: gathering the remaining superhumans. For this, he has left us a device, which is supposed to contain all of master Bruce’s knowledge on superhumans, including the way to contact them, their habits, and for an awful lot of them, their identities. It seems Batman spent a lot of time trying to understand those he worked with, and those he might one day have worked with. We are starting our mission by the bat-family, which means we are looking for dick Grayson, Batgirl, and Red Robin. Even though these three are not superhumans, they definitely are going to resist and fight back, and we must find them to prevent their deaths.
This is why we are headed to Blüdhaven, at Jason’s initiative. Even though they hate each other, it seems that Jason feels the necessity of saving him first.
We arrive at Blüdhaven by night, and we try to contact Grayson. When he picks up the call, he answers with a voice I had never heard from him, a mix of despair, hope, and a salt spoon of depression.
- Master Richard?
This call seems to have created some kind of push for him, his normal voice then replaces the other.
- Alfred? What are you doing here?
- We came to pick you up.
- I am with master Jason.
- Red Hood is with you?
- He saved me, we need to get you out of here.
A long pause follows, where I can hear him walking, through the phone.
- Meet me at the harbour, there should not be anyone.
Red Hood then speaks over my shoulder, loud enough so that Nightwing can hear.
- are they looking for you already?
- It’s you Jason?
- Yes it’s me.
- To answer you, yes they have been looking for me, but I tricked them, they think I am gone.
- Pack up your important stuff.
- You’re giving me orders?
- Yes, it’s for you, idiot!
I show Jason he has to stop, and begin speaking again.
- Master Richard?
- This guy’s a dumbass.
- Yes, but he is right.
As I say this, Jason turns his head around, I can feel an unhappy face under his mask.
- we are moving to another place, we need you to pack only important stuff, the Batmobile is a not a big container.
- You have the Batmobile?
- Yes, we used it to escape the cave, the military had found it.
- Damn… all right, we meet in fifteen minutes.
- How can we find you?
- I will find you.
He hangs up.
- so? What is the idiot doing?
- We meet in fifteen minutes at the harbour.
He drives fast, we get there three minutes before the rendezvous. I get out of the car, getting some air is important for someone as old as me.
Jason tells me to come look. I put my head through the window, he indicates me the radar. The small screen shows two helicopters and three cars approaching. I understand immediately.
- He has given us! Jason says loudly, showing his anger.
- No, they were following our conversations, they got to Bruce Wayne, it’s obvious… what an idiot… they knew who you two were, they only listened to my call… oh no!
I am pointing him the screen, it is showing an arrow coming from a helicopter, on our left.
Jason jumps out of the car, grabs his gun, and shoots, the bullets miss, but the arrow didn’t hit either. It’s green…
We hear them approaching, the cars stopped at the entrance, one of them is going for the exit. The helicopters, faster, are coming down on us. Jason tells me to get in the car. The helicopters stopped.
- surrender now, and nobody’s gonna be hurt.
- Yes, you won’t.
Jason has always been like this, only this time he’s going to get us killed. He whispers me to close the windows. I get it, the whole batmobile is bulletproof. He takes two guns, one in each hand, and starts shooting. He is aiming at the helicopter where green arrow is located. The answer comes from a blast of the helicopters machine guns. He dives to cover as the bullet hit the car, strangely, I feel incredibly safe right now. I look on the radar, the third car is blocking our exit, and more are coming. I tell Jason through an earpiece. He answers me not to worry, backup should not last.
I look again, and it seems some kind of motorbike is dashing between the cars, coming right here. I tell Jason again. He laughs. “told you!” I look at the exit point, where the car is parked, and I see a bike, literally jumping over it. I cry to Jason.
- in the car, now!
He jumps out of cover, only this time, an arrow hits him in the shoulder. I get out of the car and begin dragging him in as Green arrow jumps down from his vehicle. He starts shooting at us again. The helicopters are retreating, they do not want to interfere.
A black and red bike drives past us as a shadowy figure is jumping over the batmobile.
It lands in front of us and blocks the arrows. Nightwing.
I finish placing Jason in the car when Arrow and Nightwing charge each other. He is buying us time. Our ally dodges Arrow’s shots, dancing around them like the acrobat he is. Arrow fires an explosive one, which, even dodged, still hits. Nightwing is off balance, but he still stops the shots with his sticks.
I get what he’s doing, he’s provoking him so that our attacker uses all his arrows. He can easily dance around them. Arrow seems to have understood as well. He begins to use a strategy I read about in master Bruce’s suitcase. He fires three explosive arrows, quickly followed by a nest arrow and then by a glu arrow. Nightwing is thrown aside by the three first, then fends off the nest, but takes the glu one in the chest. The glu arrow frees some kind of sticky material, that imprisons our young friend.
A feverish Red Hood is asking me to drive, I drive. I get past him in ten seconds, Jason grabs hi through the window, drags him in the car, then takes his closed fist outside, just in time to hit the Green man. In a few seconds we are going to meet the cars at the entrance… we can make it. I tell Jason to fasten his belt as we hit the barrage made by the cars. Both of them fly in the air. The shock still broke the front of the car… I look back, it seems that the helicopters are first rescuing Arrow, they won’t see us anymore when they’ll start chasing us again. Never mind.
We stop in a forest, we get the glu of master Grayson. There is three of us now… but how many are experiencing fear out there…
next part: Amanda Waller
previous part : Constantine
Part seven: Constantine.
My name is John Constantine, I am the leader of the Justice League Dark. My team consists of Deadman, Zatanna,Madame Xanadu, Frankenstein….and me. This team is supposed to control the mystical events on earth… but I believe we failed.
I called an emergency meeting of all members, because I have sad news for them.
I am standing in the cathedral, waiting for them.
Zatanna arrived first, she looked like she did not sleep during the last two weeks! Then came Deadman and Frankenstein, none of them watch TV, what I am about to say will be completely new for them.
- It seems everyone’s here…
- Wait… where is Madame Xanadu?
Frankenstein’s loud voice striked hard in my ears. Zatanna looks down, she is ashamed.
- That… is why I called you here…
- No! not this!
Deadman was shocked.
- Our miss fortune… has been killed.
- After the announcement.
Zatanna’s tone is full of fear.
- What announcement?
Frankenstein does not like the fact that we keep secrets; it is understandable.
- Yesterday, the government ordered a chase of all superhumans.
Deadman does not want to believe it, but he knows I am telling the truth.
- That means we have to get to safety…fast!
I don’t get it… after all we’ve done for this world, they still seem to hate us!
No answer, it means they agree. I have absolutely no idea where to go, but I must not let it show.
- First thing first. Let’s get out of here!
They all follow me through a hidden tunnel that I dug myself, under the cathedral.
We end up in the street on the other side, Frankenstein is easily noticed here…
I put a cape over him and ask him to keep a low profile.
We follow the street until we get to a darker corner. It starts to rain. I look at them.
- So. Anybody knows a safe place?
- I do.
Deadman is the one to answer.
- I know someone… the best is for you to follow me.
- Can’t you tell us who?
- It is someone I possessed once.
- I asked who!
- Deathstroke’s daughter: Ravager.
- You gotta be kidding me.
- It’s the safest place I know, and it’s not far.
- Oh yeah?
- It’s about three blocks from here.
I look at him, angrily. Hiding with the daughter of the worst mercenary ever was not on my to-do list. But it is better than hiding in the sewers like Frankenstein.
- Let’s got then.
I look at the rest of the group. Frank is cold as you may expect, but Zatanna… she looks better… we broke up two months ago, I left her in tears, but it was for her own good. I am not a good man, she is a very good woman. She should stay away from me…she does not deserve that.
We walk past the police centre. I throw a hiding spell to make sure we are not noticed, although with such self-centred people… it’s useless. I do not believe Deadman nor Zatanna have yet recovered from Madame Xanadu’s death, they didn’t see her.
I was going to see her at her “home”, but when I got there… her body was in pieces, bullets had torn her apart during her sleep, her bed was red, and her organs were pouring out. This scene was disgusting, I still can’t forget it!
Deadman indicates the house, and tells us he is going to inspect the place before we fall into a trap. He comes back a few minutes later saying everything’s all right. I knock at the door. I hear foosteps coming down the stairs. Deadman warns me:
- You’ve seen worse.
I don’t get the meaning of this until the door opens. A woman with white hair, one eye missing and dressed in underwear, white too, is standing in the doorway. She has a gun in one hand, and holds the door in the second. I can’t get my eyes off her, she is beautiful!
- who the hell are you?
- That’s not her.
The last statement from Deadman surprises me. I see him going through her, trying to possess her. He comes out a couple of seconds later, he had been pushed out.
- there is someone in there, another ghost.
If I was him, I’d be relieved. But right now, this is a problem.
She is trying to close the door.
Frankenstein places his huge foot and stops the door from closing.
- Deadman, take the other guy out!
I can not even imagine what is going on in there, I have seen incredible things, but never two ghosts fight for one person.
- Zatanna, prepare a prison spell!
- On it!
The door stop resisting, Frank opens it with a push. We discover Ravager on her knees, crying loudly, she is suffering. We can not do anything, we can’t risk to interfere with Deadman’s operation. We stand here for a few minutes until we see a soul coming out.
- Zatanna! Now!
- Ivrea notralor!
The soul is trapped, I can now observe him easier. This ghost is not a ghost, only an astral form. The man is a ginger, funny, it is said that the ginger have no soul…
He is a medium sized man, with his face torn with anger.
Deadman then comes out of the girl.
- His name is Jericho, he is her brother.
- What’s wrong with this family?
Ravager then stands up, picks up her sword and places it in front of my neck veins.
- Three words: WHO.ARE.YOU?
- My name… is John Constantine, and these are my associates.
I smile at her, hoping she will pull back her sword.
- why are you here?
- We are being chased by the governmnent. We need shelter, and I think you can offer it.
- You’re not here for me?
- No, if we were, we wouldn’t have saved you from your brother.
She puts her sword down.
- how did you find me?
- We have a kind of… common… friend, who says he has possessed you once.
- He is the one who kicked your brother out.
She looks at all three of us, as she can’t see Deadman.
- Come in. close the door.
I close the door, but before following her, I place a spell on the door, to warn me in case of an attack.
- What should we do with him?
Zatanna looks a lot less tensed than back at the cathedral. Ravager answers.
- leave him here, but make sure he does not come back.
- Don’t worry about that, Zatanna and I are very good at this.
By saying this I looked at Deadman, reminding him of our first meeting.
We get to the first floor, and she indicates Frank and Zatanna two rooms, small ones but with one bed each. She then tells me she does not have any more room, and she asks me if it’s fine for her to sleep with me. By looking at her, I understand what it implies. I reply, the most innocently as possible, by saying it’s fine.
Oh hell, Zatanna is so going to hate me for that…

previous part: aquaman
Part six: Aquaman.
I used to be Arthur Curry, but I now am Aquaman, ruler of Atlantis and of the seven seas.
I had just awoken when a counsellor brought me the news of the Justice League’s death. My friends, with whom I fought against evil numerous times, were dead… all of them. This was the President’s version, at first I thought Cyborg could have boomed them all out of here, but then my spied told me that Cyborg was being repaired at Star Labs.
I had to get him.
The United States waged war on superhumans, which means my people were in danger, and Cyborg, as the sole survivor of the league, was in danger too.
My counsellors tried to warn me:
- It could be a trap
- I expect it.
- Bring a troop with you my king.
- No, this is my quest.
I swam to the surface, near Metropolis, the location of the Labs. I sent a few monsters to attack Metropolis and create a diversion. When I got on the ground, I looked left, and saw the Metropolis army facing giant sea creatures. I decided to let the fight last ten minutes, then my creatures would go back.
My memory served, and I found Star labs easily. The problem was, the military was already there. I entered the labs through he back door, and ended up in a large room, equipped with repairing tech, and scientists were discussing with the soldiers. They were arguing over what should be done of Cyborg. I watched them discuss, and when the soldier’s captain shoved one of the scientists aside, I decided to enter the argument.
I jumped in, and hit the ground with my trident. The shock threw the soldiers aside, some even lost balance and fell. I had to act quick, if the civilians were hurt or if the fight was heard outside, I had lost. With each punch fell a soldier of the five that were here. The two left tried to shoot me, I killed done with my trident, and broke the second one’s neck. I then turned to the scientists.
- I am Aquaman, Cyborg’s friend, give him to me.
- Why would we do this?
- You’re his father? Only a father has those eyes.
The scientist looked down.
- I can send him to a safer place, those soldiers can not reach atlantis.
He pressed a button, and robotic arms helped Cyborg up. He was uncounscious and fell down. I caught him in my arms.
- I must go, now, make sure they don’t know where we’re headed.
- All right, go now.
Cyborg’s heavy, I was prepared, but I did not think it’ll be this difficult to drag him to the sea.
I had told the monsters to retreat already, which meant I had no support, and soldiers were dispersed, patrolling on the docks.
I was seen by a patrol, three soldiers. I could not let them aim, I threw Cyborg aside, picked my trident, and charged at them, the surprise gave me an advantage. I impaled one of them with a quick shot, cut deeply another, but the third one shot. This gunshot seemed like an explosion, I thought the whole army was going to come down on me, but only three more patrols, nine soldiers, arrived. I knocked out my third victim and dragged Cyborg closer to the sea. The soldiers instructed me to let Cyborg go, and throw my weapons. I was now close enough to the sea to call a sea wave. The wave threw the soldiers off-balance and left me time to escape. I would have finished the soldiers off if I didn’t see reinforcements arrive. I dived in the sea, but with Cyborg, I needed help.
I called two dolphins to my help, they took Cyborg. The human soldiers on the surface tried to shoot us, but we were too deep.
We entered Atlantis, I took Cyborg on my shoulders and thanked the dolphins. I checked on my friend to see if he was okay, but he had taken a bullet during the shootout in Metropolis. I rushed to the hospital, but Cyborg was a heavy weight. Once there, I instructed the doctors to take care of him and do whatever he wanted. I then asked for my best scientist, to finish the repairs.
After all this was done, I went back to my palace. The war on superhumans was not going to stop here, and I could not afford to let other heroes, friends or not, die.
I called my generals, they are in front of me. My finest tacticians.
- Atlantis is at war….
The declaration is a shock to everyone.
- …with the humans.
This is even harder to swallow for most of my men.
I sit back on my throne, ask my generals to prepare the men, and let myself go. This war is not going to be nice…. But the deaths of my friends shall be avenged, even through blood.

previous part: deadshot
Part 5: Deadshot.
I am Floyd Layton, Deadshot.
I was with the rest of the suicide squad, at Belle Reve, in our cells. At the moment, the team was consisting of King Shark, the unknown soldier, Harley Quinn, Black Spider , and me.
We were under orders, Amanda Waller’s orders. We sat in our cells all the time, until finally a mission was proposed to us. I say “proposed”, but the bomb in our neck was kinda forcing us to agree. But not this time. Whether or not I like the mission, I am getting the damn out. I surveyed the guards and the cameras. I figured there was a 4.5 minute time period where I was not watched. This was more than enough. I began by taking the plastic knife they give along with my dinner and a plastic fork.
To place the bomb without killing me, they had to open my neck, good thing I found the mark while touching the skin. My only hope lies in the resistance of the knife. I am going to open where they did six months ago. I do not have a mirror, I have to play it with my instinct.
The fragile blade is piercing my skin, blood is already pouring out. I hit something hard… there it is! The blade breaks, the knife is useless… I have to enlarge the cut, then place my fingers…. That’s it… slowly… I take the bomb out of my neck, and crush it with my foot. I am bloody as hell.
The signal is set off, a mission…
The guards come in to escort me, I could kill them right here… but I have a better idea.
We enter the reunion room. The whole team is here…but Waller isn’t…damn, here goes my plan, down the toilet…
The briefing begins.
We are told that superhumans are chased by the government. They tell us that we have a target. Deathstroke? They need the whole team to take down an old, useless, mercenary?
They add that Deathstroke took down Hawkman… which I don’t care about.
That’s where I come in. I shoot two of the seven guards in the room. I dodge a shot, shoot back, kick one of the remaining soldiers… and King Shark takes the rest, while Harley finishes the wounded. The unknown soldier does not move, nor does Black Spider.
I start speaking, telling them I can remove the bombs in their necks as I did with mine, but also that I need time, the gunshots must have been already heard and soldiers must be on their way.
They all look at me, Harley looks happy as hell, and sexy too.
- How much time?
That was the Unknown soldier, that’s strange, we both hate each other, but here he agrees to help me…
- 3 to five minutes per guy.
- You’ll have them.
He turns and walks towards the main door, opens it, loads his weapons, and walks further.
- Okay… who starts?
I start with King Shark. The size of the cut makes it easy, I take the bomb off under three minutes. We begin to hear gunshots. Then it’s Harley’s turn, it’s harder because she has a really thin neck, but I have practiced. The number of gunshots increases while I end my run with Black Spider.
We all get ready as a bloody soldier enters the room. Harley takes him to safety while I cover them. I ask Black Spider and King shark to take care of them, while I extract the bomb. I then hear an explosion, and I see the Spider running back at us, heavily burned.
The only members capable of fighting are Harley and I. we decide to gun our way out.
- Soldier? Can you take the Spider with you and follow us?
- Sure thing.
- Good, let’s move.
Harley throws a grenade and blasts the guy with the rocket. We find King Shark with one arm left, unconscious. Harley and I pick up a machine gun, we began to kill everything in sight. After our twentieth victim, we finally emerge in a hangar, where vehicles are parked. We have to wake the Shark up, then take care of his wounds and the spider’s burns. When we offer the Unknown our help, he turns it down and shows us our other two wounded.
We take a truck, an armoured one. We all get in and Harley begins her difficult work: saving a giant shark-man. The Spider refuses all kind of help, as well as the sodier. I pick up the remaining grenades and we throw them in the direction of the door. Loud explosion, we start the engine, and hit the hangar’s door. There is trouble ahead, two jets just took off. We park and unload fast. King Shark then takes the truck with his one remaining hand… and destroys a jet with one throw. The second jet starts shooting. We parked near the forest, a good place to hide from a jet fighter. Black Spider walks painfully behind us, I go back and help him. After a short run, we are behind cover.
I turn to them.
- Alright, now, we have to split up.
- Why is that?
- We make easy targets.
- Is there a place we can all meet?
- No, Waller knows all about our safe places.
- So what?
- We... have to split, and try not to contact each other.
- Can I come with you?
That was Harley… she may like me after all.
- sure, but we can only go by two.
I turn to the muscles of the team.
- Shark… be careful, you are too easy to find, so keep a low profile.
His tortured voice answers me with a “yes” even though I find this thing a monster, it seems I am attached to him.
We nod at each other while Harley bands his arm.
- It’s been an honour.
This is the most surprising, we became almost friends…. Almost.
Harley gets up, announcing that the spider’s wounds are okay. I take her hand, and we start walking. The soldier and the spider are going east, the Shark goes north, and we go west.
We won't get caught... and they won't see us coming.
I used to be Floyd Layton… but now… there’s only Deadshot.

previous part: Kid Flash
Part 4: kid flash
Hi! My name is Bart Allen, and I am kid flash. I was with the teen titans when it happened, we were in the hideout, talking, watching TV, eating a snack… you get it.
Superboy was watching TV when there was a breaking news flash.
“ Justice league watchtower destroyed, all members killed, war on superhumans declared.”
What followed was a declaration by the vice president, stating that all superhumans had to surrender to the government or be chased and shot on sight.
Robin was sitting on the couch, crying, which was something we didn’t think was possible. Cassie turned to me and whispered “ Batman…”
I immediately understood, and I sat by him trying to comfort him.
We al knew Batman was like a father to him, even though he never showed it.
I thought Superboy would be affected, but he didn’t seem to be.
For Cassie, wonder girl, it was a bit different. She never told us about it, but I think Wonder woman was someone important to her. She held her head high until she was alone, I heard her cry silently it the kitchen.
Robin then stood up, his face still marked by the tears he just shed, he turned to us and told:
“ We have to go, now.”
We all agreed and packed our stuff very fast. That’s my department after all.
We heard engines stopping in front of the house.
- They’re already here, said Robin. Bart, go see what it is and how many they are. Conner, get ready to intervene.
- Sure thing Tim
I dashed down, I found myself in front of a couple of tanks and soldiers ready to enter the house. I tried to take as much of the soldiers weapons as possible, but something, a blast of something, made me slow down… I couldn’t run, I was cut from the speed force. I turned my head around and saw Vibe, I didn’t know him, but I watch TV, and there was a moment where there was a ton of stuff about him. I understood I was in danger when soldiers aimed at me. I cried:
Conner blasted through the walls and took the handful of soldiers down. The tanks aimed, but the noise they made blew their cover. Superboy literally tore them apart.
Robin and Wonder Girl then came down, they took care of the remaining soldiers very fast.
Vibe was the only one still standing, he blasted Cassie through a wall. Robin and superboy went on him while I had to retrieve Cassie. What they said about Vibe was hugely exaggerated, Superboy took him in one punch, and robin picked up his tech, hoping to find a way to link me to the force again.
Superboy’s X-ray vision revealed a nuke about to hit the city.
- a nuke…
- There’s a nuke coming, it’s going to kill everyone here, and civilians…
- You don’t have to go!
- I have to, I can survive it.
- No you won’t conner, you won’t make it! That was Cassie’s voice.
- Listen guys, if I don’t do this, innocents will die, if we still had Kid Flash, we could make it, but, no offense Bart, but you’re useless.
- None taken.
He prepared to take off.
Cassie was crying again, she looked at Conner, approaching him.
She kissed him, the surprise kiss transformed into something more passionate.
When they stopped, Conner looked at her and said:
“ Thank you Cassie”
He then turned to us
“ Thanks guys, it was great”
We all cried and followed him going up. When he was high enough, I swear I saw him looking back at us, and waving a hand. Cassie fell on her knees, in one day, she had lost her mentor and her lover.
Superboy encountered the bomb head on. The heat delivered by the blast could even be felt here.
Robin was the first to speak. His radar indicated more soldiers.
- We have to go… more are coming…
I started to follow robin, but Cassie was still on her knees.
This is where Robin showed me his power of compassion, he went to her, they spoke a few minutes, then Cassie got up, picked me up, and we ran and flew as far away as possible.
We were heroes, we are now runaways.
I swear to god and to Conner’s memory… that we are going to avenge everyone, I can already feel the speed force coming back.
They are going to pay.
