colorshapes: (watching the colors)

black bats flying round and round

They're not really colors or really shapes, but Addy's tastes aren't really tastes, so Kerron thinks it's okay to call them like that anyway. Addy does too and they talk about colorshapes every week. He likes Addy. She has simple colorshapes that are easy to understand and he can help with lots of them. Other people have more complicated colorshapes but he's getting better at reading them while they fly through the air.

He's on his way back to the quarters he and Mummy and Daddy share, and he's just pushed open the door that usually leads to the right building in the Forks compound.

It doesn't.

Kerron has only opened this door twice before in this direction, but he sure remembers where it used to go. Probably Mummy or Her Majesty did a magic here. He wants to see what kind. He goes in and lets the door swing shut behind him.

What's on the other side is a bar, full of people who are mostly, but not universally, human or at least humanoid. None of them are at all familiar.

There's one woman sitting alone at a table for two, staring out the huge window at the blossoming explosions of distant stars, who has a goal that relates to Kerron's mummy. Two, actually—no, three.

One: She wants to keep the city she lives in safe from him.

Two: She wants to understand why he is the way he is, and why he used to be the way he used to be, and what changed.

Three: She never ever wants to see him or Kerron's daddy again.

The lady with the bat shapes—she's got lots more of them, and one in particular that's much bigger and more bat-shaped than the rest—turns around and looks at him.



She looks unhappy.

She closes her eyes, and takes a deep breath, and lets it out, and opens them again.

"Who," she asks levelly, "is your mummy?"

...She really doesn't want to ask this question.

She asks it anyway.

"How is the Joker your or anyone's mother?"

"That's... nice," she says tightly.

She sighs.

"...What's she like? Your mother," she clarifies.

"Your mother did not make this door," she confirms.

Despite herself, she laughs.

"Is there any stuff she doesn't like?"

"I used to know your mother," she murmurs. "Or... maybe 'know' is the wrong word. I met her, anyway." She smiles wryly. "We didn't get along."

"Yes," she sighs. "Yes it is."

She closes her eyes.

"Because," she says finally, "he did a lot of things that upset me and people I care about."

"About six months," she says. "For me."

She gives him a quizzical look.
