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 toi aren't. Let me in. Please.”
“Megan, either toi let me in ou I'll let myself in.”
There was a moment of silence before the bolt on Megan's door moved. A seconde later, Megan's head peered through a crack.
“Are toi alone?”
Becca stepped inside when Megan opened the door wide. She waited while Megan relocked her door. Megan took the lit and Becca sat in the bureau 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 toi and he are together?” Becca offered.
“Yeah. I don't know what to do. I l’amour Connor but I'm afraid I might loose him.”
“Megan, I want toi to listen carefully. No matter what happens, toi 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 toi keep fighting, he will keep toi close. And don't toi push him away because of Cassie. If toi really want this to work, stay strong.”
“But you've never had to deal with this situation. How would toi know?”
“I've had quite a few battles between other girls and myself. All because of Robin. So don't judge me. toi have no idea what the journey will be like. But that doesn't mean toi stop before you've even began. It will spoil you're adventure.”
“But what if nothing happens and Connor goes with Cassie?”
“Then toi 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, toi don't even seem to like me.”
“You know nothing about me.”
“On the contrary, I know everything about toi Cassie. And this is my message. If toi ever get between Megan and Connor, you'll be hurt.”
“By who? toi can't do anything to me and the others all l’amour me. So what will toi do without powers Shade?”
“Don't underestimate me, Cassandra! I'm plus than toi 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? toi 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 par me if ever toi 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 musique 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 toi 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 toi are Cassie. I thought toi 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!
