“Why’d you leave? What happened? Why are you not dead?” Ace was bursting with questions.
“It’s a long story.” Cara replied
“It’s been eleven months. I have time.”
“Fine. This is not a truce and it doesn’t mean that I will talk to you ever again after this. As I’m sure you guessed by now, I faked my death in order to get revenge. I have been wrecking EVIL and your friends at the facility ever since. They shouldn’t get to fight over me as if I’m a weapon, I am a human being and deserve to be respected. And I don’t trust you by the way.”
“Oh, that’s okay, I’m sure you’ll learn to after a while,” Ace said with a smile.
“You shouldn’t be so trusting, Ace, that’s how you get yourself in trouble. You see, while I was out on my own, I took powers from people. Just people in the facility. They’re the only ones with powers. That’s the real reason why I snuck in. That, and the fact that I was planting a bug in your system. Of course, no one knows that they’re powers are gone, because your training is so horribly foolish. No one ever uses their powers anymore. I left everyone that I stole from with a little of their power, so they wouldn’t suspect a thing- until it’s too late.”
“But… why would you do this to me?”
“You’ll just have to figure that one out for yourself, genius. One of the stolen powers is memory wiping. You see, your dear Mr. Yates isn’t as innocent as you think. Don’t worry, it’s a completely painless process. You just won’t remember this whole interaction. You won’t even remember who I am. I’m sure you’ll live a much happier life now.”
With that, Cara wiped Ace’s memory of any trace of her, and left him laying on the office floor, completely clueless and alone.
It serves him right. He broke my trust. No one does that without regretting it. He’ll be much, much happier without me anyways. I’m not completely heartless.
