Sequel to 'Musical help'

"Stupid head cold" I muttered and got into my truck and curled up in the back seat. There was a knock.
"Tai! Look come check out these wheels!" Crysta yelled through the window. Reluctantly I sat up and opened the door letting the cold fall air rush and meet me. I grabbed my hanky. The car was a black hummer and boys form school surrounded it as it drove right up to me and ever so slowly the window can down to reveal the face of my uncle who I hadn't seen since I was 7.
"Tio Richard" I whispered but my vision cleared as the daylight streamed in to my room. I sat up in my bed. Just a dream... Only a dream. I picked up my hand mirror by my bed and began to get ready for the day. No head cold but a sore body from fighting crime took its place. I got dressed and walked to the kitchen to a very ticked off Black Panther.
"I take it you slept well"
"Want a metal?"
"Superman is coming to town. Wanna go to my house?"
"Nah. I gotta face him some day" I said and toasted a bagel.
"You need to eat more"
"I need to sleep more" I said and grabbed my mask and bagel "I'll be back later I'm going out to the fumes" I said and stuffed my mask in my pocket and chomped on the bagel them left the base. By the time I finished my bagel it was 8:00 am and I had explored every inch of the fumes so I sat at an old bridge and watched the fish swim around at the bottom. I heard footsteps and looked up. Before me stood the Big Blue Boy Scout himself Superman.
"Can I help you?"
"Yes I'm looking for Luna. She's wanted to be seen by the Justice League.
"Well why are you asking me?" I snapped and stood up.
"For one you're the only one here."
"Well how should I know where she is?" I smelt smoke "I gotta go I told my mom I'd be home before 8:30." I said and ran pass Superman to the source of the smoke.
'No time to change' I thought as I found the house and shorts and a tank top and a jean jacket is not the best thing to fight fires in and the Fire dept wasn't here.
"Help! My baby!" a lady screamed. I ran and smashed the window.
"Kid you in here?" I yelled and took my jacket off.
"Help!" a tiny voice yelled from the closet. The door wouldn't open.
"Get away from the door I'm gonna smash it open!" I yelled and waited until I heard an 'Ok'. I slammed my foot against the door and it came down. A little boy ran in my arms.
"I'll keep you safe" I said and covered him with my jean jacket. A beam came down behind us. I ran to the window I had smashed. A wall of fire covered the exit.
"Hang on tight kid" I said and ran through the wall and jumped landing on my back so the kid wouldn't get hurt. I got up. My hair was singed, my clothes where slightly burned but in my arms I held a boy, a little boy who would live to tell his tale.
"You ok?" I asked him as his mother ran over.
"Thank you. Thank you so much. I don't know how to thank you" she said and took her son from me.
"Nothing at all. Seeing your son safe is payment enough" I said and shrugged my jacket on.
"Wait lady" The boy said. He got down from his mothers arm and ran to me. He hugged me at the legs and dug something out of his pocket.
"It's a rock that I found in the river" It was purple and polished "I want you to have it" He said and put it in my hand and closed it.
"Thank you" I said.
"Ma'am?" a voice from behind asked. I turned a reporter.
"Can I get a picture of you and the boy? Your gonna be on tomorrows front page" The lady said and snapped a picture of me holding the boy. He asked us both some questions, tipped his hat and left.
"Bye bye" I said and waved to the boy and walked off. 'What to do… Maybe I'll stop by Luke's and we can get a-'
"Oomph." I looked up to see the bluest eyes I have ever seen.
"Oh I'm sorry Miss. I wasn't watching where I was going do you know someone by the name of Luna?" He said as I stared at his carrot top head.
"No I can't say I know her personally but you can ask Black Panther. I hear there like sisters" I said and pulled out my makeup case and fixed my lipstick.
"Oh ok thanks for the help" He said and walked off.
'I'm sooo gonna die' I thought and dashed to Luke's house.
"Luke are you home? Please be home" I said and rang his door bell. No answer.
"Shit" I said and dashed to Hastings. I hid in the anime section reading 'Prêtear'. I peeked out behind the shelf and saw the billionaire bachelor Bruce Wayne aka my uncle.
'Shit!' I thought and put the anime down and sneaked to the magazines. I waited for an opening. I dashed passed him and ran to the library.
'They'll never find me here' I thought. A man with bright green eyes showed up at the circulation desk.
'What the fuck?' I yelled mentally. He turned just as I hid in the romance section.
'He saw me. I'm so screwed.' I heard foot steps. The man walked passed me giving me no second glance. I searched my pockets as if I was looking for my library card as he looked at 'Romeo and Juliet'.
"Oh well" I whispered and slowly walked out.
I slowly let a sigh of relief when he didn't follow me.
'Thank you' I prayed and continued walking. A warm feeling settled over me as if it was a 'Your welcome' from God. The sudden heat was comforting and made my muscles relax a bit.
"Four sighted only three left" I muttered as I walked by the river.
"LADY LOOK OUT!" Someone yelled.
"Huh?" I said and turned a fireball was coming my way. I ran out of the way into the bathrooms and put my mask on turned invisible and walked out. There was a giggle.
"The Hate sisters are here to burn you to the ground" A girl said with a small thud as she landed.
"Bringing to you live Catty" The other said.
"And Bites!" the giggler said.
I turned visible.
"Live, up, close and personal your one way ticket to jail!" I said and tackled a Catty.
"You Bitch!" She yelled at me.
"What? The fact that you can't fight worth a damn isn't my fault." Said and dodged a punch and threw them into a tree thus knocking them out. They groaned as the police car showed up and I flew away. I landed under the bridge and took my mask off changing to my normal clothes and walk back to the road.
"Geez I should have taken the car it I knew I was gonna be tailed by the league." I said and sat on a cement bench "So tried" it wasn't even noon and I was all over town!
"You gonna sit there like a lump all day?" A voice asked. I looked up. It was the carrot top from an hour ago.
"No I was leaving to go home" I said and stood up.
"Wait no I'm sorry" He said and grabbed my hand "Look let me treat you to an ice cream or something"
"No I can't I have a boy friend" I said. His grip didn't loosen.
"Let. Me. Go" I spat and pulled my hand more away from him.
"Come on please?" He said. His eyes where so pleading, so wanting. I could barely hold myself together.
"No" I said and yanked my arm back. He took a step away.
"Stay away!" I hissed and walked passed him. Superman landed in front of me.
"Good bye again." I turned to the north. The green eyed man was there.
"Ma'am" He said.
'My last resort' I said and jumped in to the lake. I put my mask on and turned invisible.
"You can wait all you want. Unlike you I can breath." Green said and jumped in the water.
'I hate this' I thought and swam away. My vision was going black. I needed air. I jumped out of the water and speed the hell out of there. Someone was on my tail. I turned to see The Green Lantern behind me.
"You can fly but I can fly faster" He said.
"Wanna bet green bean?" I yelled and dropped out of the air. I made an ice disk (some how it was easier to fly that way) and jumped on flying low and out of the safe area. And out of the city to the falls. I got hit with a green beam type thingy and fell into the water. Luckily no one was there to get hurt.
"Ahh! Leeches leeches! I yelled and tried to get out.
'Damn moss' I thought and clawed at the rocks. I got out finally and started ripping out the leeches.
"Damn damn damn damn damn" I said and ran into a cave. I hear a whoosh and saw red boots. I held my breath and stopped my heart beating so fast almost stopping. I heard hissing and turned. I gulped and turned only to see a diamond back rattle snake. I flew out of the cave and ran right in to Green Lantern. He put me in a ring containment field type thing cutting off my oxygen and seeing how the chase got my adrenalin pumping I was gonna need all the oxygen I could get. I felt so dizzy, so cold, and at that moment… unloved. I stood up and rammed my self against the field so hard I broke my collarbone. I let out a wail of agony.
"Are you gonna give up soon?" The carrot top asked.
"Not a chance." I said and rammed with the other shoulder.
"I can't hold her in much -ugh- longer." I fell and looked out the field. Watching them, observing, praying. I saw a black blur run up to the group. It yelled something at the green bean and made him lower me to the ground.
"Tai!" He said and lifted me off the ground.
"Uncle Bats" I whispered hoarsely.
"Shh its ok I'm here we just want to talk to you" He said and touched my hurt collarbone. I whimpered.
"YOU LET HER BREAK HER COLLARBONE?" Batman yelled at Green Bean.
"Hey she rammed herself against the field not me." He spat back.
"I told you NOT to put her in a field!"
"She was running away!"
"You could have told me! I could have talked to her!"
"Yes" He asked me all the tension in his voice was gone.
"It was my fault. I rammed myself against the field….. I felt like an animal… Please let me go home." I said an the last thing I saw was my Uncle's pained face.
