-bites down on his lip- I have… sufficiently re-established most of my previous relationships with the Team members, yet I fear I cannot state they are all equivalent to the ones I maintained prior to my undercover mission. It would seem that as an Atlantean, Lagoon Boy has yet to accept my hostile actions as part of my mission - and I cannot blame him for it.
Miss Martian has been most understanding about the situation. -smiles gratefully- She has witnessed the inside of my mind, and is perhaps better acquainted with the happenings than the rest of the Team. I believe she also spoke to Conner, as he does not seem to blame me for the actions that transpired. Yet he still holds Nightwing responsible for not speaking to them about it earlier.
I had attempted to contact him, yet… I fear I have not received a response thus far.
I am most grateful for your concern, my friend. -offers a small smile- I cannot deny I would be glad for some time off, yet my duty to the Team remains my priority. My quiet time can wait.
…I fear we had not yet had the chance to properly converse since I have returned to the surface. I… His presence has indeed… been missed.
That is most… curious. Perhaps Red Arrow was aware of that information when he procured this account for myself.
The job is not one I would choose voluntarily, no. Yet I am willing to accept the responsibility if it proves necessary. I believe Nightwing is correct in his decision to resign his job under the circumstances, yet I fear Barbara is not yet ready to assume his position. It is a heavy burden to carry, one that Nightwing and myself are more adept to as of now.
My apologies, I was not aware of such an event taking place. -offers a barely visible smile- I do not deem myself worthy of the honor, my friend, yet I am most… grateful to hear it.
I have been, until recently, engaged in a long-term mission of most utter importance. I would… prefer not to discuss this further, if you would permit it.
I do not believe it has occurred to me previously, no. Yet I do recall Artemis’ suggestion of a similar nature once the plan of myself joining forces with my Father first arose.
((ooc: Greetings and salutations to everyone who hasn’t unfollowed me after more than a year of inactivity. I’ve been thinking of picking up this account for a bit, and see how it goes. Not sure yet what I’ll do with it, I may turn it into an older Kaldur account, after-Invasion. Either way, feel free to pop by my ask!))
