“So... Nathan Stone was really the son of the man who killed your parents?”
Kaylee watched Dick pace back and forth in front of the sofa, kerusi panjang where she sat with Danna. Dick finally collapsed onto the sofa, kerusi panjang with them. “A-yup.”
“And we don’t let him back.”
“I took his designation code out of the zeta beam’s computer, so the only way he can be back in here is with authorization.”
“Was he the mole?”
“Kaylee, we’ve already solved that problem.”
“Like, ages ago.”
“Who was it?”
“Can we stop with this?”
Danna was standing over the two, rubbing her temples. “We need to get Fin back. Soon.”
Kaylee nodded. “She killed some people.”
Danna gave her an annoyed look. “Not helping.”
Kaylee pointed. “Neither is the necklace, but anda don’t mind that.”
Dick took the kalung from Danna’s neck. It was beating slowly, then quickly. It was strangely irregular, like...
Danna turned to Kaylee. “She’s dying, Del.”
“No!” someone screamed from behind them. They jumped slightly and turned to find Aisling. “She-she’s Fin, she can’t die!”
“None of us want her to die, trust me...”
“Well, then somebody get rid of the phoenix spirit thing!” Mercy exclaimed from the doorway.
“Not that easy, Merce...” Phoebe shrugged.
“What the hell do anda think we’re doing, prancing around like f*cking ponies! We’re trying! I don’t want her to die either, she’s my goddamn sister!”
Dick paused and turned away from them, breathing heavily. Everyone was shocked at his sudden outburst, when the computer berkata “Authorization required.”
Dick glanced back and waved his hand lazily. “Authorization granted... whatever.”
“Recognized- Shadowchild, A12. Authorized sejak Robin- B01.”
Everyone’s vision shot up to where Jessica was about to appear, and took a fighting stance. Jessica came in smoking and muttering. “F*ck, f*ck, f*ck, f*ck! anda have to help me!”
Dick kept his position. “Why?”
She eyed him. “Well, if not me, your sister. Because... dammit...”
Phoebe growled and went up to slap Jessica. “You idiot! Did anda know?”
Jessica nodded sullenly.
Phoebe growled again. Becca watched her. “Know... what?”
Phoebe sighed and ran her fingers through her hair. “Fin’s prophecy... Jessica’s unlocked it before it’s time.”
Dick started choking, Danna fell, and Aisling just seemed confused. Kaylee started freaking out, with Fang, Mercy and everyone else Frozen with misunderstanding.
Phoebe bit her lip and turned away.
Jessica looked up, tears spilling. “Fin’s going to kill us all. And then destroy the world. And she’s not going to be able to stop herself.”
And everyone just stared.
