“Erin! You're up.”
She looked to the eyes belonging to her partner and co-leader.
“Where am I?”
“In a hospital. After the circuits were flooded, toi were found in the room with Valen. He's fine par the way. Don't be disturbed....but you've changed. And you're powers...are not the same.”
“What....? I don't want....what?!”
He smiled at her.
“Why am I restrained?”
“You kept trying to déplacer when they ministered medications.”
He looked at the restraints and she felt them drop free.
“Thanks, K.C. Now...what happened with my powers?”
“You're speed, I'm guessing, was changed with the electricity and water mixing together. After all, toi did get them that way.”
“So....I have...no powers?”
“None related to the speed force, no.”
“But...I have them?”
“Yes. toi still have mutant DNA, we're just not sure what they are.”
They both looked to the door to the nurse standing in the door.
“Becca!!! What are toi doing like that?!”
“K.C. He thought it would be “great fun” for those who were wounded. Anyway, I've been running tests. You're blood is...very active, still. It's got a wild side to it.”
“Your strength seems to have increased immensely. And toi have a strong combative instinct. My theory is toi may have been bonded with a water golem of some kind.”
“A gollum? Like Lord of the Rings?”
“No. Golem. Nature spirit. Though very volatile.”
“And I bonded with one...why?”
“Well it's life was probably going to be expended. It clung to the nearest thing.”
“Great. Anything else?”
“Yes. You've been retracting and detracting a pair of wings. Sometimes a tail; a demon's. Those features can be marked par a golem. And toi have some water properties.”
“Well toi seem to absorb water on toi rather than...not. And toi can survive in water terrain. Oh and toi can control where it goes. So toi do not have water-bending, no. toi have some traits though.”
“Wow. So....can I see what I look like now?”
With a small nod, Becca handed her a mirror.
“Take a look, Valda, spirited warrioress.”
