Tundra lead the team north. Her thoughts kept drifting to the trail Charm had taken. There wasn't many predators that could harm Charm. A few bears but they always left people alone. And there was no reason for villains to come to the island. So why was it bothering her so much?
Shoving it out her mind she stomped through the forest loudly. "Could you be a little less loud" Superboy snapped. She turned and glared and then returned to her frantic stomping on twigs. Aqaulad also noticed. She was well capable of keeping quite but she was creating so much noise he began to believe she was trying to keep her mind controlled.
"is something bothering you?" Aqaulad ventured. "no" was her short reply. "Then could you not create so much noise?" he asked. "no" was her answer. And after 20 minutes of crushing twigs they reached the border of the town. "Here it is I'll be here" she pointed to her spot.
"Why don't you come with us?" Megan asked. She didn't answer. "Answer her" Superboy growled. "I have my reasons" she answered. "But you said you were from the town and-" Megan was cut off. "And I left it why would I want to go back!" she snapped.
"please" Megan whimpered. "Ugh fine come one" and with that Tundra entered the town. "Cloths sell over there. "Food and water is on that corner, tools you can buy right there, homes are on the west side of town, and shoes are in the shop there" she pointed. "Can I leave?" she blinked. "no" Superboy answered. She snarled and stomped away from them.
Aqaulad just stared. "Buy our supplies then we go after her" he ordered. Tundra stomped through the town and to the edge were she ran into a moving shadow. She looked up. Tundra nearly cursed out loud and ran screaming. She just ran into batman. The god damn batman! "Who are you?" he asked. "T-t-undra" she stuttered.
"Why were you with the team?' he quizzed. Swallowing she answered. "I found them" she shivered. He narrowed his eyes. "Their in town buying supplies I'm a native from the town but left a year back. Elementi, robin, artemis, and kid flash headed south towards the coal mine that gets the town it's money" she defended her self. "go find the other in the town and go back to their camp site" he ordered and then disappeared.
Charm swore under his breathe. Damn branches, damn dark path. It didn't help that he could smell something irony. And then it clicked. Blood. Some one was injured. and badly. "Charm?" a voice cracked. He looked down. A quiver and a boy were laying 3 feet away from a bloody and injured Red Arrow. "What happened?!" he yelped.
"Cheshire and the injustice league are by the coal mines" he croaked. "Come on" he helped the archer up and they walked slowly back to the site. When they arrived Aqaulad, Ms. Martian, super boy and a white wolf were there. The wolf was pacing back and forth sniffing the air and whining. "Red Arrow!" the team cried out. The white wolf whined again pawing at the earth.
"Tundra says Elementi's in trouble" Charm spoke. "Stay here Ms. Martian we will go aid" Aqaulad ordered and fallowed the wolf into the thick forest. It wasn't hard to keep track of her. Her white pelt was darting in between tree's. The wolf slowed and turned pointing her nose to the field in front. "The injustice league!" Aqualad blinked. "Who?" Charm asked. "A group of villains that teamed up" Superboy answered. "Oh Tundra?" he looked down. She wasnt there.
Instead the wolf was stalking towards a man with a fancy ass cape. "Vertigo!" Charm gasped. As they burst out from the forest Tundra lunged sinking her teeth into the mans arm. "Argh!" the man shook his arm.
They attacked. Charm danced around laughing like an insane person. Driving forward he went for the kill. Black Adam puffed his chest out as the boy ran straight into him. Then punching the taller man's jaw Black Adam stumbled as the boy attacked him with the strength of superman.
Everything was going well till Tundra shifted back and threw ice shards at Poison ivy. finally all of them were down. Well almost. "Were....is .....joker?" Elementi asked holding his side. The magic guy had shot at him rather hard.
The crazy ass man was behind Tundra. And she didn't even know. Charm turned his blood running on high and he was grinning. He liked the sound of ribs cracking under his hand. It was so much.....fun! And then when the crazy man was right behind HIS new pack mate he stopped smiling.
"Tundra move!' he shouted levering his gun to shoot the clown. "Not so fast, hostages can make things way more fun!" the man laughed pacing two daggers at her neck. Tundra raised her hands slowly prying the knives away and freezing a block of ice around each hand. "Nice try" she smirked.
the group let out a breath of relief. Charm didn't lower his gun. This was joker. You never drop guard around him. This is a man that Batman is scared off. And he was right. Joker slammed his hands into Tundra's forehead. She stumbled and then he kicked her to the ground.
And she wasn't getting up.
And charm just held the gun loosley. His mind wrapping around the fact that she wasn't getting up. And then fear closed on him. He could feel her fading and the blood from the impact was falling over her white skin.
In the war he had been in if you fell you never got up. They didn't even look like he was sleeping. "Man snap out of it" Elementi said behind him. And he snapped back into reality. And pulled the trigger. Shooting at the joker made him laugh. He got the man's leg and butted his head with the handle of his pistol.
Then he walked over to the girl's body. She was barley breathing. Her lips moving as if she was speaking in her dreams. he lifted her bridal style as they walked. No white wolf darting ahead. Leading them. Just pitch black darkness. And the she almost stopped breathing. Charm was scared. He hadn't even told her he loved her and she was already dying. "is she ya know" Artemis asked. "She'll pull through Tundra's a fighter" he answered.
Please. Please don't die on me! he screamed in his head.
