“Did Talia send you?” Jason spits angrily as he tries to sweep her off her feet. “Are you from the League?”
“Am not,” Cassandra replies and holds back a huff as he attacks again, this time with something she thinks is a flame dagger. Some of his moves are foreign to her, but she knows Batman’s training when she sees it. Jason seems to incorporate both elements well, so much so that he almost manages to catch her side with his sharp blade. This fight’s been going on long enough.
Grabbing Jason’s wrist just right and putting a necessary amount of pressure on it, Cassandra says, “You’re good. I’m better.”
And that’s how she ends up pinning her brother down behind a dumpster. So much for making a good first impression.
In which Shiva shares one of her many, many secrets; this one is going to turn Cassandra's world upside down.
