“Wait, he’s your dad?” Wally finally managed
“Yes” I nodded
“And wewe were hugging him because…?” Robin asked
“None of your beeswax!” I snarled
“Woah…touchy” he muttered
“I’ll onyesha wewe touchy mister ‘I’m so cool and awesome because Batman’s my mentor’” I muttered under my breath.
“Why didn’t wewe tell us?” Wolverine asked
“Because it didn’t concern you. My family concerns Me, Kurt, Laurna, Laura, Wanda and Gambit. No one else” I growled
“Why does it concern them?” Aqualad asked
“Because they’re the closest the to family I have, aside from Gambit” I said
“What about your mother?” Wally asked
“My mother…” I whispered
“Yeah, your mom, mum, mama, ma, mommy, mother, mu-“ Wally ranted
“She’s dead! Are wewe happy now?!” I demanded, tears brimming my eyes. I spun on my heel and walked out. I heard people walking after me. I broke into a run. I didn’t want anyone taking advantage of me while I was in such a fragile state. I ran to a bridge, where I broke down. Someone came over and sat beside me.
“You okay, G?” she asked
“I-I don’t like talking about it, Domino” I said, wiping tears from my eyes.
“If wewe keep it all bottled up, you’ll never be able to feel free” she said
“M-my mom was killed when I was ten. When I was thirteen, my dormant X-gene awakened. Gambit ran off, leaving me alone. When I was on the run one day, Kurt found me and brought me to Wanda and Laurna. I got scared, so I ran off again. I ran into X-23, who Kurt had contacted to find me. She calmed me down and brought me back to Kurt, Wanda and Laurna. And that’s how I made my family” I explained
“And when Remy helped wewe cope through your mom’s death a couple dakika ago, it was like the bonding you’d been deprived of as a child” she nodded. I nodded and shivered.
“D, what should I do? I can’t stay here; the Brother kofia might re-attack. If I go back to Gotham, Batman will find me. I just want to be alone” I said
“Then be alone. Travel. Before I joined the Brother Hood, I was unsure of my place in the world. I traveled around Europe, Asia and America a bit, got my head straight and joined them” Domino said. I smiled at her.
“Thanks D” I hugged her.
“Us girls have to stick together” she grinned. I ran to my room and quickly wrote a good bye/thank wewe note to my family, then ran to the docks where the Brother kofia boats were parked. I smirked and found Quicksilver’s boat. I put the keys in and sped off across the water.
Obviously Quicksilver get's a racing speedboat!
