Quiver stopped upon seeing Jet's expression. She listened.

"Mad and wondering is putting it lightly but yes," Quiver interjected. She wasn't as angry as she had been before. At least, she didn't appear to be. Her tone was calm.

Quiver tried to remember back to that incident but it was a long time ago. And she'd be lying if she told herself she had been fully paying attention at the time. In part because she did not think she was meant to hear a more personal conversation. But eventually, as she thought, she remembered bits and pieces.

"So what happened, exactly? How did you get out?" She felt as though she remembered enough where she didn't have to ask this question. But she asked it anyway for a number of reasons. She felt guilty for her main reasoning and that was simply due to a matter of trust. There were still things that had never felt right with that entire scenario and for all she knew, Jet might not have been Jet.

For the most part, Jet ignored Quiver's retorts and overall attitude. Mainly because he didn't want to start an argument and in the end forget to mention what he wanted to. So instead he allowed whatever comments that came from her to flow over him, stated what he needed to, and then gave her enough time to calm down and assess what had just been said.

"Get out?" Jet questioned in a disgruntled manner. "Who said I got out?" He didn't know whether his choice of words or the tone he used would cause Quiver to be irritated again. It wasn't as if his tone was directed to her. Either way, he decided it was best to clarify things soon.

"No, I didn't escape, if that's what you're thinking. I just got lucky. What was probably a year to you was more like a blink of the eye...in a sense." He however trailed off with his last statement.

"...It happened a long time ago, and one of the reasons I don't like using my speed to its fullest potential."

"Jet," Quiver said, her voice calmer now. "I'm glad you're back but..."

She really didn't know how to say it. She felt guilty for having to think this way. But she didn't want to make the same mistake twice.

"How do I know you're really you?"

At first, Jet was offended by Quiver's question. He made no effort, subtle or otherwise, to hide his reaction. However, he realized what she had asked was understandable, given what had happened. Even if it had occurred half a year ago, it seemed just like yesterday to him. Or maybe even a few hours was a better analogy.

"I don't know...What do you want me to do? Save you from another twenty foot monster?" He asked, still a little bothered by her questioning. "You're just going to have to trust me..."


OOC: For the most part, a few phases of this is just going to be catching up or whatever. So if you want to create a small subplot to go along with this go ahead.

"Okay..." Quiver said. She still felt guilty for even having to bring it up and especially given Jet's expression. "But for the love of god, can we please come up with a code word or something so I don't accidentally almost kill you? And vice versa?"

She hoped her comment would lighten the mood, if only a little.

Although Jet didn't know that Quiver was trying to lighten the mood or try humor, given her personality, he was already thinking of several different code words. However, it didn't take him long to think of the best ones.

"Cake," He said one simple word, "The code word will be something easy, like Piece of Cake, or Easy as Pie. Either one will work, cause you know, they're all about food." After all the technicalities were finished, he wasn't sure where to start.

"So...what's new? It's got to be at least half a year that passed. I'm sure there's a lot of news or crime scrounging around."

"I was thinking pink elephant but cake works fine," Quiver replied. She didn't care to share where she had come up with the code word and said no more about it.

It wasn't until Jet asked her how things were that she remembered leaving the Caped Crusader behind.

"We have a new hero helping us out," Quiver said even though she was sure Jet had seen him before, "...that we kind of left behind."

At first, Jet was going to question Quiver's social life, or rather nightlife, but he choose not to do so. Even if he was right, he was sure she would find some way to outright deny any conclusions he came to. Or worst, she would get into one of her snappy and bickering quarrels, which he did not want any part of currently.

At the mention of a new hero who was helping her, he couldn't help but to frown a little. "I see. So I go missing and at the drop of the hat you find a new partner." Although he didn't intend for it, he allowed a statement to slip out through his teeth.

Several seconds later, a small radio device that Quiver owned, went off. It was very similar to one that Lunar Knight owned, as he had supplied her with an additional copy. It made a loud clicking noise, followed by static, before it honed in on the frequency, and voices through the signal became clear.

"This---is Unit 12, we're repor----a robbery in progre---" Despite the signal still being weak, enough was heard. "Requesting---additio---back up at Baker Stree---suspects are armed and dangerous"

The last part however was too difficult to decipher properly.

OOC: 221B Baker Street? :p

"I didn't look for a partner--" Quiver began. However, before she could finish, her scanner went off. She had to hand it to the Lunar Knight, this ideal form of sweeping over the polices' radio signals was ingenious. She only wished she had thought of something sooner. And she would never admit that.

"Shall we?"

The device or rather the police intelligence was right on the money. There was no doubt a high-speed pursuit that was currently going through Baker Street. It was clear by how fast these criminals were going that they wouldn't be on this road for too long.

The sirens of nearby police cars could be heard and their flashing lights, as they sped by pedestrians on the sidewalk. There seemed to be a total of four within the getaway car, the driver, another within the front passenger side, and the other two were at the back.

As the driver was busy getting them to safety and away from the cops, the other three who didn't need to focus on the road, were concentrating on the police force. One was armed with a shotgun and the other two had machine guns.

With quick precision, the shotgun shells tore through the first cruisers tires. The police vehicle spun out of control, before it crashed into a newspaper stand. The owner and a few patrons reading the paper were able to avoid a near death experience thanks to Jet and his super speed.

However the getaway car and armed criminals were still on the run and causing the remaining nearby police force a difficult time. In fact a lucky shot was able to pin a police officer, driving his cruiser, right in the shoulder.

They couldn't possibly concentrate on the road and the fact that they were wounded at the same time. As a result, they began to speed uncontrollably into a busy sidewalk, where there were a lot of pedestrians.

As the police cruiser sped out of control, an arrow soared towards its rear tire. The tire popped upon impact. Another arrow followed shortly.

But that would only slow down the cruiser to a degree and there were still pedestrians who were not moving out of the way fast enough. Quiver jumped down from her position and pulled two people out of the way of cruiser's path.

Since the police officer was incapacitated by his gunshot wound, the cruiser sped uncontrollably into the sidewalk. Fortunately bursting two of the tires did slow it down enough for Quiver to save the straggling pedestrians.

However, the vehicle hopped onto the curb, while it screeched and roared. Although there was no one in the cruiser's path, it hadn't came to a complete stop, and would be crashing into a nearby building any moment. Jet noticed the predicament the officer would be in, if he suffered the collision, and anyone who might be in the store, and quickly sped to the swerving vehicle.

With super speed he opened the door, unbuckled the driver's seat belt, placed the injured officer in the passenger seat, and swerved the cruiser between a backstreet. Once he was certain the cruiser wouldn't be going anywhere, he removed his tight grip from the steering wheel.

There was certainly a lot of collateral damage, that he took note of. There were the two wrecked cruisers and a demolished newspaper stand to name a few. Unfortunately in their brief moment of saving the endangered citizens, this was giving the criminals more time to escape.

The two super heroes still had time to stop them, if they used it wisely.

Quiver climbed onto the nearest bush stop overhead and took aim at the getaway car. If she could just take it down like she had with the cop car and Jet used his super speed to reach the vehicle almost immediately, the criminals wouldn't be going anywhere.

But she was at a disadvantage now: she was no longer high up and the car was moving farther and farther away. She had to be careful and timing was everything. So she pulled out one of her wind arrows.

She took longer than usual as she took aim. It had to be just right. When she felt she had the show, Quiver let her arrow fly.

Jet slowly pulled the officer out of the cruiser and leaned him against the store's wall that he almost ran through. The man was lucky, since the bullet hit him in the shoulder and wasn't any where near his organs or joints. There was a medic on scene who quickly rushed to the officer's aid.

This allowed Jet to focus on the getaway car that Quiver was aiming at. He only hoped she didn't wait too long. He could barely make out the vehicle from where he was. Her arrow whistled through the street and due to its wind resistance it was able to make it to the car in seconds.

It blew through the rear driver side's tire effortlessly. It then penetrated the front one, just as the first tire exploded into pieces. It didn't blow out due to the arrow losing speed and force through the penetration. It didn't matter though. There was still a big enough hole made and almost all of the air left the tire.

Just like the cruiser from before, the getaway car began to weave. It was clear that the driver was more skilled than the officer. He was able to keep the car from spinning out uncontrollably. The fact that he hadn't been shot in the shoulder helped matters.

The other three ceased firing out of the windows, as they held against the car's sides and embraced for the worst. Jet wasn't about to let Quiver's perfect shot go the waste and began to speed down Baker's steep hill.

As the driver continued to keep the car from spinning out he didn't take notice of the other three slowly being removed. Jet went from one door to the other and yanked one of the criminal's weapons out of their hands. From there, he removed one unarmed crook and hung them by their shirt on a tree, a post, or whatever was around.

The remaining criminals couldn't figure out what was happening until it was too late and they were also whisked away. The driver finally made it to the end of the hill when he decided to check on his colleagues. When he realized that no one was in the car, he panicked.

Thinking on the spot, he jumped out of the car, and grabbed a nearby awestruck citizen. "I'm not going back to prison!" They pulled out a pistol and placed it to the person's head. "I'm getting out of here, do you hear me!? I'll blow their head, if you don't step back!"

Quiver aimed another arrow. But she was too far and without a clear shot of anything that might be a useful distraction without putting the hostage at risk.

"Damn it."

She needed to get closer. She climbed down from her post. If Jet couldn't figure something out, hopefully he could distract the criminal long enough for her to get just a little bit closer.

The criminal made sure that he grabbed the weakest and closest hostage that he could. A frail old lady was held by gunpoint. There was no way she would be fighting back. Especially against someone in their prime. It took all of her strength to hold onto the man's arm, as she panicked.

"Drop your bow now!" The man growled, as they pulled back the hammer of their gun. It slowly clicked and echoed through the barrel to the old lady's head. They made sure to watch the archer, as she had an arrow aimed at him. "I'm getting out of here..."

Suddenly a burst knocked both the man and the old lady away from each other. He didn't even have the time to fire his gun, as he was sent off of his feet. Jet was more focused on the criminal, as they had a loaded weapon pinned to a civilian.

He punched the criminal in the face, as they were still falling from the first strike. Since he had to place too much priority on the man, he didn't have time to stop the old lady from falling. He only hoped that Quiver could think of something. He couldn't do everything himself.

Quiver remained still as the last robber held a hostage at gunpoint. She lowered her bow as she tried to take a few steps forward.

Suddenly, the burst sent the two apart. Quiver was closer to the older woman so she made a dash for her before she hit the ground. She grabbed her before she hit the ground, nearly falling herself in the process.

Before the criminal could fall from Jet's punch, he was grabbed by his collar. This time, there wasn't much liveliness to him. As his partners in crime hung from trees, they moaned from the migraine they had now just received.

Since they weren't much of a threat now, Jet lowered them against the getaway car. It's not like they would be making another mad dash across the county, since Jet had also swiped the keys. Even if he hadn't, it wasn't like the man was in any condition to keep running. They would probably run into a wall, a fence, post, or any obstruction on the road.

Since his part of the job was done, he looked over to see how Quiver had fared. She had the old lady in her arms and neither of the two seemed to be in any harm. All in a day's work. Jet gave her a thumbs up and a cheery smile, as the police and paramedics began to show up on the scene.

They rushed to apprehend all the criminals and to help anyone who may have been injured, but fortunately that didn't seem to be the case this time.

Quiver gave a nod in Jet's direction. A paramedic came towards her to inspect the old woman for any injuries or signs of shock. It was then Quiver took the opportunity to step back from the situation and let the paramedic do their job.

She lingered away from police, gawkers, and anything in between. She only planned to stay a few extra minutes to see if there was more to the story. But, at the same time, she knew the press would be all over this shortly and if that was the case, she had a quick escape down the alley directly behind her.

((Just trying to jump in seamlessly. I know we're all on little time so you don't need me pestering you for an intro. Not that I was, but...I'll shut up now.))

Before the do-gooder duo got too far away from all the buzz, a journalist approached them both. He was a youngster that couldn't get any more stereotypical; a long coat and a fedora with a white card tucked in the brim that read "PRESS". "Hiya!", he said cheerfully to them both. "Robert Sable here. I work for the New York Minute. Can I get a word from our local heroes?" Before either could answer, 'Robert' stepped closer to where Quiver was standing so that he was more in the alleyway and hidden from the crowd. It seemed he didn't want a crowd, but he wasn't a REAL journalist anyway. It wasn't clear who this clown was. The costumed heroes would surely have questions of their own if they weren't too used to being snatched up by members of the press.
