Becca stopped at the Martian girl's door. She had been heading to her own room when a noise had stopped her. It sounded like crying; not a good sign. She tapped on the door softly.
“I'm okay Becca.”
“No bạn aren't. Let me in. Please.”
“Megan, either bạn let me in hoặc I'll let myself in.”
There was a moment of silence before the bolt on Megan's door moved. A một giây later, Megan's head peered through a crack.
“Are bạn alone?”
Becca stepped inside when Megan opened the door wide. She waited while Megan relocked her door. Megan took the giường and Becca sat in the bàn chair backwards.
“You know that new girl Cassie?”
Becca nodded, tensing up at the name.
“Well, she is...”
“Moving in on Connor even though she knows bạn and he are together?” Becca offered.
“Yeah. I don't know what to do. I tình yêu Connor but I'm afraid I might loose him.”
“Megan, I want bạn to listen carefully. No matter what happens, bạn have to keep holding on. I know things will be difficult and you'll want to give up. But don't. Connor is a clone yes. But he also has feelings. I know for a fact that, as long as bạn keep fighting, he will keep bạn close. And don't bạn push him away because of Cassie. If bạn really want this to work, stay strong.”
“But you've never had to deal with this situation. How would bạn know?”
“I've had quite a few battles between other girls and myself. All because of Robin. So don't judge me. bạn have no idea what the journey will be like. But that doesn't mean bạn stop before you've even began. It will spoil you're adventure.”
“But what if nothing happens and Connor goes with Cassie?”
“Then bạn doubted yourself and Connor.”
Cassie looked up and smiled.
“Hey Shade. What's going on?”
“I have a message. For you.”
“Oh? Who's it from? Connor?”
“Sorry to damper your spirit but no.”
“You don't seem very sorry. In fact, bạn don't even seem to like me.”
“You know nothing about me.”
“On the contrary, I know everything about bạn Cassie. And this is my message. If bạn ever get between Megan and Connor, you'll be hurt.”
“By who? bạn can't do anything to me and the others all tình yêu me. So what will bạn do without powers Shade?”
“Don't underestimate me, Cassandra! I'm thêm than bạn know.”
“Really? Then how about a little spar? For fun?”
Before she could finish, Becca found herself flung across the room and slammed against a wall. She fell to her hands and knees, blood dripping from her mouth and forehead.
“See? bạn can't touch me.”
“Don't count on it!”
Becca ran at her “opponent” and used every trick she knew. All of her moves, all her weapons, everything. And she was winning. Cassie pulled the lasso off her hip and wrapped it around Becca, sending an electric jolt down the girl's spine. Becca screamed and fell back down. Her arms were bound but her feet weren't. She stood shakily and pulled the weapon out of the surprised Wonder Girl's hands. She undid herself, now holding the lasso.
“I told you; don't underestimate me.”
With a quick turn, Becca had Cassie wrapped in her own lasso. A kick to the back of her knees sent Cassie falling to the ground.
“That's proof that you'll be hurt bởi me if ever bạn get between Megan and Connor. So back off!”
Becca turned to walk away when Cassie screamed out in pain. Becca looked back, twirling her escrim sticks, as the others entered.
“What's wrong?” Artemis asked.
“I was just here, listening to my âm nhạc when Becca attacked me!”
The other girl stood in stunned silence. No way was Becca going to let that happen!
“Liar! You're not the only one with bruises!” Becca yelled.
“So what happened?” Artemis repeated.
“We were sparring,” Becca answered.
“And bạn threatened me!”
“I did not! I warned you! And my warning stays!”
“Now you're lieing! Telling someone that you'll hurt them if they don't do something is a threat!”
“I'm surprised how smart bạn are Cassie. I thought bạn were just a stereo-typical blonde!”
The final dagger thrown, Becca stormed out of the room. She would not stand for this. And she wasn't about to let Cassie get away with it either. This meant war!
