Bruce could feel her pressing up against him, as a source of comfort, an anchor to keep him from being swept in the sea of despair, or as means to search for her own comfort he couldn't be sure. None the less, he felt presence and it helped. but only a little.

His breath stilled when she asked her question. That was right. They were the ones who brought in Tim weren't they? They found him. Did- did they seem him do it?

As Beast Boy, still a little bird, spoke out. Bruce felt himself close his eyes for just a moment before reopening to look at the hybrid clone. So Kon-El was already banging on the door. He had suspicions. The silent question was asked when no one spoke.

As the young man spoke, guilt and despair hit Bruce hard. The younger did indeed take Dick's death hard. He- he should have been there. Should have been there to comfort his young ward. He truly did fail as a father.

Though a part of him almost wanted to blame Kon-El as well. But he knew, the more logical part of him knew, that the clone was not to be blamed. he didn't know how Tim would have reacted. And in all honesty, Bruce had hoped his young ward would never again go back to doing such actions to treat himself. He had hoped.

But that wasn't the case.

Selina just took a breath, Tim. Why would he fall back onto the activity? How did he get his hands on anything to cut with?

"How did he get his hands on anything to cut with? They took all of our weapons away the moment we came here." She added, feeding Bruce information to solve the puzzle. He was the detective. The genius. She was just the informant that fell for the big, brooding Bat.

Beast Boy shrugged. He wished he know. "Well there was a bloody bird-a-rang I think it's called in the bathroom. I don't know how he got it though." Gar looked to the two adults in the room hoping they had answers.

Kon blinked before frowning at the woman's words. He remembered the bird-a-rang, of which Gar mentioned soon after. But how did the ex-Boy Wonder get it/ Weapons were taken away. And it wasn't as if those kinds of things could be easily found lying around the manor... Ok well not this manor anyways.

So... where did he get it? The hybrid had no idea.

A bird-a-rang.

Bruce frowned deeply. Tim shouldn't have had that at all. All their weapons had been taken, including the utility belts. Bruce knew, he checks his costume carefully for even a trace of soemthing. There hadn't been. Something isn't right. he thought, his mind starting calculate teh reasoning behind it being in the unconscious man's possession. Did he somehow manage to sneek one away?

No. That was very unlikely. There was fowl play here. he thought as his hands clenched into fists. There were three possible and logical possibilities.

The first, was that someone- a protector- was on their side and wanting to leave such things around to help in their aid of escape. Which made teh Caped Crusader think of Alfred. But Alfred surely would leave such a high risk option about. Not if he knew what Tim was like when pushed to a corner. No, it was possible, though the least likely.

Second, was if someone left it for someone to try and escape, only to meet their demise. A plot to have whoever found it walk right into their demise. Which for this world didn't seem to fr stretched an idea. But also not as likely as the last.

No. The last option seemed higher up. The protectors obviously had information on them. Which seemed plausible for them to know of Tim's past problem with cutting. So it was possible for them to predict the young man's horrid reaction to Dick's death and left such a tool in his room for the man to highly injure himself or even take his life. Such a thought made Bruce's blood boil. "he was set up." he concluded, a growl leaving his mouth. If he ever found the person responsible.... Well, they'd be lucky to live to fear the night.

Selina blinked, realization hitting her harder than falling on cement. Someone was trying to get them to off themselves. Well, in this case Tim. They were trying to get Tim to kill himself.

But why? Why would they want Tim out of their way?

"Do you think Tim could figure out how to hack the collars? They didn't realize that before bringing him her and they needed to cut the loose end or something?" Selina added, trying to make sense of why someone would try to get Tim to kill himself. The idea, the disgusting thought of someone setting up a suicide made her blood run cold.

She just really hopped Tim woke up from this.

Beast Boy fluttered his wings nervously. He hoped that that wasn't the case. If these guys wanted Tim dead then, if they couldn't get him to off himself they would send someone else to do it for them. These were not the type of individuals to leave someone they viewed as a threat alive.

The room grew silent as they all looked towards Batman, awaiting for the detective to figure out the mystery. The man was quiet, his face an emotionless mask save for the frown formed deeply on his face. Briefly Kon wondered if it was permanently there. But now was not the time to think about.

The worry that was settling in him stopped him from being distracted by Tim's earlier groaning. There had been nor other noises and his breathing hadn't quiet changed so the other was still slumbering. Though he hoped his boyfriend would awaken soon.

The silence was starting to get to the hybrid. He nearly fidgeted until finally, the Dark Knight spoke.

"He was set up."

Kon felt his body stiffen as eyes widened. Fear and panic filling him at the very idea that someone would try to get Tim to kill himself. Without a thought, more of an instinct to see, to verify, Kon set his eyes upon the man he loved. Watching him breath, he tried to find comfort that he was indeed alive. But for how long? I'll protect him. he though with determination. it didn't matter why anyone was trying to kill him, the fact was they were, and damn Kon if he let them even try again.

Bruce took in her question, frowning as he thought it over. It was plausible. But it didn't seem quite right. "It's a possibility." he admitted, but his frown remained, as if there were too many of the pieces missing that you couldn't even figure out what the puzzle looked like. Which was exactly that. There were number of reasons behind why they would try to get Tim to kill himself.

Outside of what Selina had suggested, there was the possibility that there was someone with a grudge against Tim. A villain with connections or a protector who despised this universe's Tim. Or they were trying to make the heroes weaker by having one of their own kill themselves so soon after one had died. To stab at their moral. After all, were the heroes not the bigger threat to them? But- there was a possibility that this was a ploy. A distraction to something bigger.

"But there are too many other possibilities to know for sure." he spoke, feeling himself become uneasy and restless with this hidden mystery. He needed to investigate. But that was easier said than done. That and Tim needed him. He couldn't leave him. Though that may be what they want. his mind brought up.

Selina rolled the thoughts in her mind, sighing. Why was this happening? Couldn't they be safe, oh wait they were in a murderous Arena world where people that ironically called themselves Protectors wanted them to kill each other. Her eyes moved to look at Tim's face. It looked a bit pained as his lip moved, well twitched.

"Move on to a different topic for now, I think he's waking up."

--

(( For the sake of I don't want people jumping in posting order I'll keep Tim's post in Selina's ))

Tim felt the numbness subside to an ache in his arm and chest. He made a pained noise as his mouth twitched. It really hurt. Why did he hurt? He remembered talking to Bruce and then...

Dick died. He let them kill him because he was morally against the murder of another. Bruce was there, talking to him instead of Dick. Kon, Dick had told Kon and not him.

Why?

Was he not good enough?

...and his arm felt weird. And why was it being held up? His cracked an eye open before he shut it again after the brightness left him light headed.

"K..n?" He mumbled out, trying to figure out where he was in the brightness.

Was he dead?

When Gar saw Tim wake up he fluttered down and sat next to him. He waited knowing that Kon or Batman would want to be the first to speak to Tim after what happened.

Whatever Batman was going on about was silenced and forgotten about in Kon's mind the moment he heard Tim's breathing change and the shift of the bed. Bringing his full attention on the injured man, he watched as blue eyes opened, only to squint in the light.

"K..n?"

He was talking to him. Well, at least it seemed like Tim was talking to him. He hoped so anyway. "Tim." he breathed out, his free hand reaching out to stroke black locks of hair. His hand was shaking slightly, the worry and fear still within him. But relief as well. Relief that Tim was awake. He would get better. He wasn't being taken away. Thank you God. he thought as he gave a sad smile.

"God Tim- You- you had me so scared." he said, his voice revealing his earlier distress as he chocked out the words. Though a new set of panic already filled him. Would Tim start yelling at him again? Spew out hate-filled words and want nothing to do with him? God he hoped not.

Upon hearing Selina's words, Bruce silenced himself and watched as Tim's body began to shift and the man slowly awaken. It seemed that Kon-El and Beast Boy were fast in action. The little green bird fluttering next to his ward as the hybrid spoke out quietly while stroking Tim's hair. Silently, Bruce moved towards the bed, worry etched into his face as he gazed down at the other.

He did not utter a word yet. This kind of situation was delicate, and the last thing he wanted was to say something that could be taken wrong and drive the other to the blade once more. No, he had to think carefully of what to say, while making sure Tim didn't feel cornered.

Not an easy task, but it needed to be done.

Selina stood, watching the men. Bruce was being the worried father figure, Kon being the supportive boyfriend while Garfield even had a place to stand. What was she? She felt like her place was no longer meant to be here, but she needed to make sure Bruce was okay and Tim as well?

She decided moving next to Bruce would be the only reasonable thing to do, which she did. Slowly and silently she moved next to Bruce, looking down at the all too pale and pained young adult. Her hand twitched at the sight.

Why?

--

Tim's eyes had shut once more, it felt like water was swishing to and fro in his skull. Thinking hurt but it was all he wanted to do.

And the noise.

Seemed so loud in his ears. Kon said something to him, he caught the word of scared. It didn't overly click for the moment but, then again, the ex-Boy Wonder's mind wasn't exactly focused on that task. It was more or less trying to get the pain from his head and arm to subside. Hands brushed over his forehead, the touch was nice and comforting. He decided that was okay, plus it made the swishiness go away for a moment.

Gar watched at Kon stroked Tim's face. He move closer and transformed into a koala.


He had read once that furry animals have been know to give comfort. A cat was a bad idea, Tim wasn't really fond of them. A dog would not be able to move to suit Tim's needs and a rabbit would need Tim to hold it and he didn't need to do that in his condition.


As a koala Gar pressed himself against Tim's side wrapping his arms around the injured man.

Kon watched Tim, it was obvious that the young man was still in pain and seemed dazed. But he was leaning into the super's touch, so that have meant he was no longer mad. Or just out of it enough to not remember how angry he was with the hybrid. He hoped it was the first one. Because if Tim simply couldn't recall now, he surely would later and Kon's chest hurt just thinking of the anger and rejection Tim could dish out.

Out of the corner of his eye, he saw the green bird that was Gar become bigger and furrier. Now he was a green Koala Bear. A green Koala Bear that was snuggling on Tim's side. A small wave of jealousy took hold, but the Kryptonian hybrid held it back. Gar was just trying to bring comfort to the other. Being a good friend But man, he really wanted to be that Koala now.

Now's not the time for silly jealousy like that. he thought as he continued stroking Tim's head. "Tim?" he asked quietly, since the other had still not spoken since what he first said upon waking.

Bruce watched on with great concern as Kon-El and Garfield attended to Tim, both providing comfort in the way that they qualified to. The green man being a good friend while the clone acted as a good boyfriend. The tall brooding father stood there and watched on, feeling at a loss. His young ward seemed disoriented, which meant he couldn't ask Tim anything. Besides, he still didn't know the right words to say, it was a delicate matter after all.

With a frown, made from frustration at himself, he rubbed the back of his neck before a set of determination filled him. "Keep an eye on him." he spoke at last, looking at the hybrid who had turned at his voice. "I'm going to investigate the incident." he said, his voice deep and emotionless. Batman's voice. "I'm entrusting Tim to you." he added, letting the words, and their meaning, sink into the clone. By the youth's wide blue yes, it seed he got what he meant.

He trusted Kon-El, trusted him to keep Tim safe and cared for. As well as approved of their relationship, not that he would ever object to what made any of his boys happy. And Tim needed happiness in his life.

With that said, he turned and began to head out of the infirmary. "I will be back to check on his status." he said as his goodbye.

"I agree with Mr. Tall, Dark, and Brooding." Selina looked back at the figure walking away, "I think I know where he's going. I'll keep an eye out for him. Just make sure Tim's fine and let him know we were here. 'Kay?" Selina turned to walk away before turning back on her heels.

"Kent, ask Tim about Catlad. I think you'll enjoy the reaction.~" She purred out before walking after Bruce. It hadn't taken her too long to gauge what his reactions were to thinks. She had known the brooding Bat since before Dick. And that was saying something.

--

Tim peaked an eye open once more. Something felt heavy and his side. He wasn't exactly sure if he liked it either.

"...off me." He mumbled out, eyebrows knitting together as he hissed out in a minor bit of pain.

"Can lights go out? Too... bright." Tim said, shutting his and. He slowly moved his only good arm to cover his face. He almost didn't want Kon to see him. Not like this. Perfection like the clone didn't need to see the imperfection of him. He didn't deserve Conner. He never did.

Gar gently releases Tim's side after he winced. He curled close to Tim letting his soft fur brush against his friends side. He glared at Batman's retreating back. The least the guy could do was stay until Tim could talk coherently.

Kon turned his head towards Batman as the man declared he was going to go investigate. It bothered the clone a bit that he hadn't said a word to Tm yet, but he knew the investigation was important. It was for Tim's safety. Besides, it was Batman. This was what he did, and he often knew what was best. At the brooding hero's following words, Kon felt his eyes widen. He was being trusted to keep Tim safe. By the Batman. That was big.

He gave a quick firm nod as he watched the other leave, followed by he familiar woman who said she'd keep an eye on the man.

"Kent, ask Tim about Catlad. I think you'll enjoy the reaction.~"

This left the Boy of Steel curious. What was- or who was Catlad? And what did it have to do with Tim? Well it'd have to wait for when he gets better. he thought looking back at the other. Gar had backed away, apparently Tim wasn't enjoying being cuddled by the green koala.

"Can lights go out? Too... bright."

The lights? Kon looked above them at the florescent lighting before looking down at Ti. "Um ok." he said, carefully settling Tim's arm down before moving to the light switch. He flicked it off, before turning back around. The room was much darker now, but his vision allowed him to see the body heat of the other two. He walked back over to them and placed his hand back into Ti's hair. "Better?" he asked.

Tim made a noise, subtle but it sounded like a sigh of relief. Though, the distractions were only keeping his mind partially occupied. What could he say? What could he do? Kon had seen him at his absolute lowest. Would Kon leave him after he saw the failure in him?

"I'm... sorry." Tim tried to say. Over whelming pressure filled his throat, choking out any words. He was stupid, but God the pressure in his blood needed to be released. And that was the only way he remembered how.

You're just a failure.

When Gar heard Tim say he was sorry he immediately wrapped his koala arms back around his friend.

"There's nothing you have to be sorry for." Gar hoped Kon would have a way to really help but for now Gar would do what he could.

"I'm... sorry."

Kon's heart clench as Tim gave his apology. Vaguely he heard Gar tell the other there was nothing to be sorry for. But that wasn't really true either. Tim had scared them all with what he had done. So instead of saying something like Gar did, the Boy of Steel reached out for his boyfriend's good hand and brought it to his lips. "I'm sorry too.": he mumbled out, referring to the words he had spoke that had gotten the other so angry. "I'm sorry so please- please don't do anything like this ever again."

Kissing the hand again, he felt a few more tears leek down his face. "I thought I was going to loose you." That had terrified him so much. The idea of loosing Tim. And it almost happened. He never wanted such a thing to come close to happening ever again.

"I don't want to loose you."

Tim bit his lips, feeling the tears he fought so desperately to keep at bay movie down his face. He pulled himself up, it stung and hurt, whimpers proved that. But he deserved it. He was a moron. He didn't deserve what Kon gave.

"I won't, I... I fucking promise I won't." Tim desperately just wanted Kon to know how much Tim didn't deserve him, that Tim was just dragging him down. But... if Kon asked, he'd try. He'd try his damnest.

but god damn it he wanted a hug, or just to touch Kon. Just to let him know he wasn't going anyone. He was half tempted to yell at whatever the fluffy thing that spoke was in between them to go away. It was being a hug-blocker.

Gar could tell this was now a couples thing and he wanted to get out of the way. He shifted off of Tim and changed back into a bird. He flew up onto Conners shoulder.

"I think this has become an A B conversation so I'm going to C my way out. If you need anything from anywhere in the house let me know and I'll go get it so you don't have to leave him." Gar gave him the best bird smile he could and flew over to the door. He transformed back into his human form before stepping out to give the couple some privacy.
