Sarah was surprised to see Sam inside the elevator. He walked out, cape, suit, ceinture still attached, but his mask off. He walked over and looked at Sarah.
"Is there some boring assignment I can do?" he asked.
Sarah looked at him for a moment. "Talk." she said.
Revenge sighed and sat on the desk. "It's Holly. I'm worried about her."
"Why? Because she might get kicked out of this Team toi guys are on?"
"No, because she's my partner."
Sarah's looks turned compassionate. She placed her hand on Sam's knee. "None of what happened was your fault." she said.
"It is." Sam said. "If I had been better, Rose wouldn't have gotten hurt so much."
"And if Vendicta hadn't gotten shot with that beam and been exposed to that gas, she wouldn't have had all of those superpowers." Sarah said.
"Name one other time she got hurt that it was good."
"Besides moral lessons? None."
"Exactly my point. And Ryan was no different."
"What happened to Eagle was not your fault. He chose his own destiny. It might have been toi in that spot. toi might've been killed."
"Stop trying to make me feel better!" Sam exclaimed. "It's me. I draw bad luck. I can't save those who are my friends."
"Or girlfriends." Sarah added.
"You're not helping." Sam said.
"Why don't toi go investigate this." Sarah said, handing him a piece of paper. "String of murders. Looks unconnected, but I found out they all went to the same high school. Looks like Reaper's out for Revenge."
"I'll handle it." Revenge said.
