Maybe I’m not running from you. –Selina Kyle, from The Dark Knight Rises
Sometimes he wondered just why he’d come back at all. Nobody here really seemed to trust him and those that did trust him were pretty untrustworthy themselves from what experience with them he’d had. Most times there didn’t seem to be anything here for him. No reason to keep going as everyone he knew from Before was dead and gone or…
Erased and gone.
By his own actions.
The Illusion Master placed his head in his hands and kept the tears trailing down his face from pulling sounds from his throat.
As he was alone, no one would ever know how successful he was.
(There was no one to care either.)
