Her thoughts were jumbled and her body was on fire. She broke through Earth's gravitational pull and threw the bag of black magic from her hands and out into space. Deep dark 우주 and it's never-ending mystery. As it disappeared from sight, Devin felt her body being weighed down. She slowly descended into Earth's atmosphere before allowing herself to fall. She felt the pull of gravity crash down on her and push her farther down and deeper into a foggy senseless state of mind. But her mind was also at peace. If she died she had least saved Robin. A smile formed on her face as she thought of him. His charming personality, his funny mocking comments. His amazing abilities, his caring nature. His unreadable face, his handsome characteristics. But 더 많이 than anything, Devin loved his gentle and emotional heart. She saw him as a young boy the 일 he 로스트 his parents. She saw him a 년 later when he became Robin. She saw him a few months 이전 when he joined Young Justice. And she saw him as he'd been almost a 일 ago; caring and sensitive towards her but still gentle towards his team.
Yes. There were no regrets for this moment. Her life, although misguided, had been fulfilling and very rewarding. Her past no longer mattered and her future was no 더 많이 trouble. She could see how much her life had been worth. How much it had meant. And being able to see all that meant so much 더 많이 to her than finding her strong magic. It meant 더 많이 than a stupid quest for the power to break free from her hidden past. There had been so much 더 많이 to it just through the simple act of watching, observing. Her spying had paid off for her own benefit. Her 심장 was content at the simple thought of knowing Robin. And that's all that had mattered. I'm sorry Robin, she thought just before whiteness clouded her vision.
“Did 당신 find her?” Robin asked franticly.
Aqualad shook his head with sorrow.
“No. Devin was no where to be found.”
Robin bit his lip to keep the tears away. But even he couldn't hide them from the rest of his family. Megan grabbed Robin into a hug, running a hand soothingly through his hair. Robin resisted at first but then hugged her back tightly, not caring that he was crying hysterically. Wally took him from Megan's arms and brought him down on the couch. He hugged his best friend while Megan sat on his other side and rubbed his back. They all gathered around Robin, trying to console him. But they didn't know how. Robin never had reacted with a lot of emotion; besides playful joy that is.
They don't know how to help me, Robin thought. They've never 로스트 a loved one; never become an orphan 또는 even watched someone they cared for die. Except maybe Megan. But even she doesn't know what it's like to feel lost. I was 로스트 the 일 my parents died before my eyes. And now I'm 로스트 because Devin disappeared from sight. Oh Devin...where'd 당신 go?!
“It'll be okay Rob,” Wally whispered. “Devin will be okay.”
“How do 당신 know? She could be gone forever. An I didn't get to say goodbye!” Just like I never said goodbye to my parents!
“I don't know Rob. Not for sure. But Devin's a Dark Angel. And she's a trained assassin. She's been trained to survive and supply. Like you.”
Robin smiled a little but it didn't last long. He shifted so his head was on his best friend's lap and he could stare at the blank T.V. Something didn't seem right. Why would Devin run away? And why was she scared to reveal herself? Had there been someone after her? What had caused her to run? Who would want to hurt her? Why did she seem so familiar? No 답변 came to Robin's mind but he intended to find them. And he knew how he was going to do it. He calmed himself down, making his breath nice and even. He heard the others sigh when they assumed he was asleep. But they were wrong. And that was a very good sign. Now if only they would leave...
“Come on. Let's see if we can find Devin.”
It was Artemis' voice. She sounded determined and worried. But it was expected; Robin had never acted this way before. At least not to their knowledge. Sure he would express his emotions in some way. But never had he acted upon emotion unless necessary. And this wasn't one of those times. For the team. Robin kept his 프렌즈 at arm's length, secrets shrouding around him. But that didn't stop the young hero from expressing emotions. It was just very rare to see him act out of character. Devin obviously had meant something to him. That was the obvious. They just didn't know how much.
A light shinned in her eyes, making her head pound. She raised a hand to block out the light and found herself staring into two deadly brown eyes. With a gasp, Devin moved back. She panted heavily as she examined the person in front of her.
“Sensai Turron! 당신 scared me!”
The voice was cold and Devin knitted her eyebrows together.
“Have a done something wrong Sensai?” she asked.
“Devin. You're a smart Dark Angel. But 당신 lack listening skills. Last time 당신 came, I told 당신 to infiltrate and deceive. Is that correct?”
“Yes Sensai. And I have done as 당신 asked-”
“Liar! Infiltrate means enter in without being noticed. Which 당신 did. But, although 당신 were sent to deceive, I will not tolerate an 앤젤 of darkness to become an 앤젤 of healing!”
“But he would have died! I had no other-”
“You should have let him die! One less human to deal with. And one 더 많이 앤젤 we bring under! We've used this code for several centuries and 당신 broke the chain. Because 당신 saved a human.”
