You know what I like about secrets? They are buried, deep in your soul. No one can take them away. You lock them inside and the only way they ever leave is if you let them. If you unfold right in front of someone and literally pour your heart out.
What comes later, the aftermath, that is what I do not like. You can never know what will happen, how people will react. How that individual will take that secret.
Will they accept it, will they ignore it, will they use it against you?
The cycle had started, and I knew that there was something about you, something that was buried, hidden, but that you kept close.
Close enough to let loose.
You simply needed just...a push.
But that is what you did to him. You pushed him.
And so here we are.
I could not expect to know what was coming next. Whether or not you'd understand, for you were young. But once the test was displayed, all that was needed was the results.
You accepted it. You embraced it. And you became a Chapter.
A fresh one, a new one, and as time passed, one to stay, to understand, to test.
He was there for you, and you were there for him.
A balance required, presented and kept.
A promise, a friendship, an unbreakable bond.
From one hero to another, he has your back and you have his.
But what is it that they say? What doesn't kill you simply makes you...stranger?
Well, here we are.
Understanding the flaw in the code.
You know me, I know you.
In a cold, hard world, only the strong survive, and although some might say you are not, I can prove them they are wrong.
I see the strength in you, the nobility, the will to fight.
You might keep it buried, but he knows you can bring it out when needed.
Yes, you are young, but because you are young, you will learn. I can teach you.
And he can show you.
Because to him, you are like the young sister he never got the chance to help raise.
His hero complex will allow him to teach you.
And I will be with him every step of the way.
Know this, dear Batgirl...
...we have your back.
Or who gets in the way.
You have much to learn, but stick with us, and you will learn to embrace the fire rather than get burnt.
