Dear Diary,
I totally blew it! I was out with The Bat and Blackwing, they wanted information from Daddy’s work. They were still so hurt from Tor beating them up, I couldn’t stand it. I was supposed to watch, but they were hurt so bad I had to help them, so I took Blackwing’s headset and thumb-drives. They had said pretty much how they were planning to do it and where the traps were, so I just went. I wanted to impress them and show them how good I was but all I did was make the Bat mad by ignoring everything he said.

Let me start at the beginning. I was watching for them from a rooftop when they surprised me. Everything suddenly got real quiet and I got spooked and turned around and the Bat was standing right there. Then Blackwing flew up and they invited me along on a mission! They thought I might want to be with them instead of watching from a distance. I was so excited, of course I went!

They had it all planned, get in, get out, no alarms and no fighting. We all climbed down the alley and got in that amazing car and drove to where Daddy works. I don’t think they know who I am or they wouldn’t have taken me. Anyway, they took some stuff up this building across the street from Dad’s work and I could tell they were both hurt. I watched them set up while they told me how it was supposed to go. They knew all the traps on the building and exactly how they were going to get past them. I meant to be good, but I couldn’t. Everything they did hurt, I could tell, and it hurt me to watch them.

It was obvious why Blackwing was supposed to do the mission, he flies so it would be easier for him to do it, but I couldn’t let him. Whatever they needed, I had to get it for them. If I got caught, Daddy would be mad, but how mad could he get, really? I’m his daughter!

Anyway, I did it, easy as pie! When I got back, they were already packed. The Bat asked me for the headset and thumb-drive and then said, “go home.”
What do I do? He’ll never talk to me again!

heart-broken and distraught

Sensei said I was right, of the three of us, I was the best for the job at the time. He also said I was wrong, that I wasn’t a good teammate because I didn’t tell them what I was doing. He said I would have to learn teamwork if I wanted to work with the Bat. He’s right, I didn’t tell them what I was doing, so they thought I was going to get everyone caught. I’m really sorry. But how else can I show the Bat what I can do?

Sensei also said he doesn’t think the Bat really wants any more partners. So why did he take me along? Sensei thinks he wants to teach me how to use my skills, he says that’s what’s happening with Blackwing.

Dear Diary,
It’s been three days and I haven’t seen either of them even once. Maybe they are still recovering from Tor, or maybe they are just avoiding me. Sensei stopped training early tonight and sat and talked to me. He said I needed to get on with my life, whatever that means. How can I get on with it if I don’t know what it is or how it’s supposed to be?

Dear Diary,
I know now what I have to do. I have to find a way to apologize to them. Then maybe they’ll talk to me again. But how?
