    Summary

    "M-My dad said you, you’d,” the kid says, swallowing. “That if I didn’t, that if I didn’t behave, he’d sell me to you. And you, you would…”

    The shock burns away immediately; the ashes condense into a murky, muted sort of rage.

    He stays still for a long moment, then pulls himself up against the wall. “Okay,” he says monotonously, taking a step toward the kid, and the kid- flinches. He flinches.

    Jason reels back, not speaking yet, not trusting himself not to yell. And when he does speak, he says:

    “Come on, kid. Let's go say hi to your dad."

    Summary

    Bruce doesn’t often think about the nascent pack bond between him and Tim.

    It’s just...there, as it has been for a while now, and when he thinks too hard about it he remembers that it scares him.

    He notices when it snaps.

    He’s in the manor when it happens, a cup of coffee in his hands as he stretches his legs on his way back to his office. He’s not thinking about anything important, absently running through the quarterly reports in his head for the meeting he has in the next hour.

    The bond, a tiny shadow of a presence in the back of his mind, dissolves into hollowness.

    Summary

    The tank lurched again and he silently begged for any sea god to please let him out of the dizzying, pitch-black hell. His body ached from getting beaten into the box’s side. The water was stale and disgusting in his gills. There wasn’t any light and he couldn’t see anything.

    He was so full of fear he was beginning to get numb to it.

    He didn’t know what these humans wanted with him, but he knew it couldn’t be good if they started by shoving him into this too-small box and tossing him around like a boat on an angry sea.
