You're a good girl..... Aren't yah?...yes." Jade detto in the goody goody baby talk as she played with her baby girl. Lian giggled as she held her mother forefinger listening to the her commenti and watching her make a thousand kissy faces .
She grab hold of her mother wide black locks and Jade gushed out,"Awe! Lian that's my hair." She quickly remove the child's tight grip from her hair. She rubbed her head as she held Lian with one hand, balancing the child on her lap.
"Dada," Lian said, as her mother look back at her.
"He''ll be back in sec...." Jade said, interrupted da the opening of the window. Jade continued, "see," looking at Roy as he enter the apartment.
Roy looked at his beloved girls, whose faces lid up when they saw him. He smile and walked to the counter placing his quiver and bow on it, then he walked into the bedroom.
Jade and Lian faces frowned as they watched.
"Let's go see what's wrong with daddy." Jade said, getting up with Lian in her hand.
Jade stood in the doorway studying her husband, who sat on the letto backing her. She smirk and walked to Lian's cradle, placing the child in it. Lian gave a sound of distress but calmed down when her mother kissed her on the forehead. Jade climbed onto the letto placing her hands around Roy's waist. She whispered in his ear,
"You forgot to say good night."
Roy took his hand and held where her hands interlocked and tilted his head toward her saying,
"Sorry Chesh good night."
Jade looked in his eyes, there was a familiar look in them, a look she hadn't seen in weeks. The distress, worried look when he thought he was never going to find Speedy.
"Are te okay Red?" She detto sounding concerned as she removed her hands and kneeled on the bed. Roy placed his hand on bed, facing her.
"We need to talk." He detto in a low tune.
"What about?" she replied, lying on the bed.
"It's about Artemis," he told her, bluntly. Jade let out a deep sigh and throw her head on the bed.
"Why'd we have to talk about me baby sis, it's ridiculous." She said.
"Jade, Artemis dead during a mission night." Roy said, looking down at the bed. Jade burst out in laughter, placing both her hands on her mouth trying to contain herself.
"Okay, I'm really not in the mood to start a 'What if'." She said, looking up at Roy. His face was plain, when she made eye contact, he look away, Jade's cuore started beating, she detto in a trembling tune,"Red please tell me you're lying." He didn't answer, she got up from the letto and headed out the room.
Roy realized that she was gone and proceeded after her. He reached into the doorway, stopping when he saw her running through a bag da the counter.
"Chesh what'd te doing?" He asked in a low tune, walking up to her.
"I'm ca..calling my..." she stuttered, and the phone slipped out her hand. She tried to pick it up but Roy held her da the shoulder.
"Chesh, she's gone."
"NO!!" Jade shouted, looking into Roy's eyes, which screamed nothing but the truth. She burst away from him.
"S-S-She can't be dead........She's too, too smart and skilled." Jade detto in disbelieved, " Right Red." Looking through the window. She felt Roy's hands touched her shoulders. She quickly turned around,
"Roy she's to good, I mean, she-sh was trained da the best, o-our father and Black Canary and others, right?"
Roy held his wife in his arms, as she held on to his suit.
"Chesh I'm sorry."
Roy heard her gasped deeply and suddenly she started sinking to the ground and he follow. Jade's breath increased and her heat beat kept raising as she held on to his shirt. Everything around her suddenly went silent.
She felt Roy's finger scooped her chin, and directed her face to his. Roy knitted his brows, he gently took his hand and wiped away the tears on Jade's face. Jade quickly removed his hand and rubbed her face. She realize what she doing, she was actually crying and she constantly rubbed the tears but it just kept flowing. She subbed and dato up rubbing, she looked down at her lap,
"It not fair, it should've been me, why was it me? she was the good one, the one that cared for our mother. when I was scare to do it, she's the one that followed the right crowd. Why wasn't it me, I'm the bad one. Why Red?" She mumbled and sobbed. She looked at Roy with blood shot eyes, whose eyes just stared at her. Jade let out a few più tear, but this time she rucked and made louder sob sounds. Roy creeped up to her once again holding her in his arms.
