Becca watched the scene play in her head again. Everything seemed wrong. It should have been her. All that had happened was her fault. She should have been in there. She should have stayed when she'd had the chance. She should have never entered their lives. The explosion that had cost her her team sounded and Becca cried out.
She opened her eyes. She sat in the same green chair she had an ora ago. Black Canary sat across from her, Batman close by. Becca brought shaking hands to her teared up eyes, burying her head in them. Sobs racked her body as she strained to hear Canary's words.
“You have a right to be hurting over this, Becca. Everything happened as te said. But te seem almost...traumatic over the whole ordeal. That's not normal. For you, I mean.”
“What's that supposed to mean?!” Becca exclaimed.
“Nothing! Just that-”
“Just that I'm heartless?! That I have no emotions at all?!”
“Whatever! te can't heal me! No one can fix me! So stop trying!”
Becca stormed out of the room, heading for the exit. Black Canary was hot on her heels and grabbed her arm when they were alone in the training room. Becca responded da lashing out, landing Black Canary on her back.
“Worst thing te could've done!” Becca hissed.
She released the older hero and ran out of the mountain. Hopping on her bike, Becca rode away from the one place she wanted gone the most.
Batman entered the room in time to see Black Canary getting up. Recognized: B-013 Shade He went up to her, helping her to get steady on her feet.
“I-I'm not sure. One secondo I had a hold of her, the successivo I was flat on my back. Becca's powers might be recitazione up in her traumatic state.”
“So she's dangerous.”
“Not necessarily. Just defensive and emotional. We need to choose our words wisely. It could spell trouble for the rest of them.”
“What of the remaining three?”
“Devin, Erin, and Willow seem okay. Becca is the one I'm worried about most.”
“A potential threat?”
“Yeah. Unless te tiptoe around her.”
“Which we can't do.”
“Then the only other reasonable method is to leave her alone.”
“We should add Cyrus, Red X, and Angel to the roster. Keep them from Shade.”
“As long as we need. As long as she's feeling upset, Shade will be true to her name. We must protect the other three from getting in the way of her wrath. Before things fall to pieces.”
