Harley flew away from the Mountain crying she knew they could have helped her, but she didn't want to take chances. What if one day she really did hurt some one.
Harley let t=her mind wander thinking back to the words Kaldur said. How he pleaded with her on not leaving. Then it dawned on her, what would happen when they told Roy?
He'd have a fit! and then try to find her. She knew it.
She walked now down the streets of Metropolis. she flew over to Clark's apartment he shared with Lois Lane.She didn't want to bother them, so she just sat there, on the window sill not making a noise. After a time, visiting lost and long ago memories. remembering the faces of the workers in The Labs, how they examined her every nook and cranny, and the things they injected into her, and made her breathe.
She shuddered at the thought of it. Harley suddenly heard movement in the apartment, she jumped up and quickly flew away before she was discovered.
Harley flew with the wind in her ears, as she flew over to Wayne mansion. Knowing batman he probably wasn't here. She flew down to the ground and when her feet touched the ground her body stumbled slightly ans she fell in a heap. Her black long hair covering her view. Just then a British voice called out, "Who goes there?" Harley pushed her hair out of her face, to come face to face with Alfred's trusty shot gun.
Backing up Harley laughed, "Alfred it's me, Harley!"
Alfred put the gun down surprised, "My word, Miss Harley! What are you doing here? And this late at night? Its a dangerous world out there Miss Harley."
Harley smiled, "Oh Alfred, you know i am capable of taking care of myself."
Alfred huffed, "Don't ALL children?"
Harley laughed again but started upwards again, "sorry to scare you Alfred, just stopping by."
Alfred waved and called out, "Who said you scared me Miss Harley!?"
Harley smiled a wide grin, and disappeared.
She flew giving thought to her decision, and she knew it was the right thing, to do.She landed in an alley watching as a dog sat there tending to its wounds.
Harley watched it, and said, "Hey Batman." without turning around, she knew he was there. Batman placed a hand on her shoulder, "Harley, i heard about your decisions. I wont tell you if its the right thing or not, but would you give it some thought just to join, i know we can find away to help you. And the team," Harley cut him off, "No! No Bruce i'm sorry. I can't its way to dangerous. What is i don't just harm myself sometime, what if i take a life there. Even with Superboy and Miss Martian, i still can fight back, You know that. Its to dangerous Bruce i ain't going back. At least not now."
Bruce lifted her chin, "I told you Harley i am not going to tell you what to do, i just want you to know, The team is Heartbroken, we haven't told Roy yet, so right now the most grief stricken is Kaldur. he's just there in your room Harley, he won't leave. I just want you to know."
Harley let the tears spill now, even thought it was highly unprofessional, Harley hugged Batman.
She didn't except to be hugged back. But he did, and she kept crying as he held her there.
Batman suddenly said, " I can't remember but i remember when i saved one little girls life, she never came to me though, i don''t know why, but i think i would have allowed myself to hug her too."
Harley smiled and said, "Bruce, "You're hugging her now."
Bruce gave her an odd look, "WHAT?" Harley smiled up at him, "I was that little girl from the park, they were my adoptive parents, but you that was me. That little girl was me."
Batman smiled a minute, like i hadn't in a long time. then he said, "Its good to know you're still alive."
