I stood there, drinking my coffee, not knowing what to do. Wally was the trunk and I was the branches. Without the trunk, I'm dead. So, in a way, I'm not living.
I wonder if science has to do with any of this, that Wally is still...I shook the though from my head. Wally can't be alive.
I wonder of anyone will be able to help me. I wonder, if there's anyone out there that can become my trunk, help me stay strong. I wish there was.
Nobody is out there anymore.
Not even Jason.
He left my side a long time ago. When he died and way resurrected. I shivered, and rubbed my arm, where I was burned.
It was so long ago, and I was trying to save him from the Joker. Even if Poison's dad hadn't blown up the warehouse, Jason would have died because of the injuries and the loss of blood.
If Wally and I were ready to take him in, we would have been able to prevent this. I thought.
If I hadn't dragged Wally into the experiment, he wouldn't have been killed.
Though, Wally wouldn't have met Dick.
Or even Batman.
He loved being a hero. So did I.
I heard a knock on the door, and I got up and answered it. It was Poison.
"Becks!" She flashed me a smile, and pulled me into a hug.
"Hey Pois." I said.
"Guess who's back in Gotham!" She said.
"Your dad?" I guessed.
"No idiot! Your brother!" She stated.
"There was no need to call me an idiot!" I stated, folding my arms across my chest. I suddenly felt a jolt of joy. Poison sighed.
"You're right. I'm sorry." She patted my shoulder softly.
"So, what's new with my brother?" I asked, as we sat down at the table.
"I haven't had the chance to talk to him yet." Poison replied.
"Oh really? Normally you kick his butt the second he comes in." I said. She smirked.
"I do don't I?" She cracked a smile and I chuckled.
"You seem bright today. What's got your sadness?" She asked.
"I guess the fact that my brother's not too far away makes me happier." Poison looked sternly at him.
"So,the big day is two away, huh?" I asked trying to change the subject.
"Getting poetic are we? You're definitely in a good mood!" She asked.
I smirked back.
"Why, I'm Becca Tigra after all!"
"Oh, I know!!" She said, "You're ALWAYS cheerful! Your brother didn't shut up about you!" Shocker.
"What?" I asked .
"You heard, Jason was going on, and on about how you were the best sister ever! He also said something about you being twins with Artemis?" Poison looked at me.
I buried my face in my hands.
"The boy never knew how to keep his mouth shut." I said. Poison laughed.
"He was only seven years old." She said. I laughed.
"I kept my mouth shut when I was seven."
"He's a boy they don learn as fast as girls do." We both laughed. Only Poison.
