Blackbird’s Diary

This is what I get. I told them over and over again, but this is where I’ve landed myself because I let my emotions overtake my logic. As they always do.

Great going, Blackbird...

I told them my information would do nothing to help. That bastard major made me spill everything and look where I am, another cell. At least it is underground this time. Garth and Alec know I am not the enemy, they said so.

That helped a bit.

But I’m such an idiot! Why I let him get the better of me, I don’t know. I need to talk to Ira, though I am sure he believes the major and thinks I am a traitor, no matter what his friends say.

How can they do this?

I watched as Kai murdered my family, the sadistic man killed them with bullets, wounded me with a blade.

When he brought me back, I would have slaughtered his followers, with relish, too.

Maybe I can find a way to get out of this cell, I was given Ira’s knife after all, and I always liked it. I remember him showing it to me in our teenage years; he got it as a birthday gift.

But, what is the point of escaping?

If I try to break out, that would confirm their suspicion that I am working with the man who murdered… attempted to murder me.

Which I am not. Kai works alone. He sees his followers as disposable trash.

I bet the major is just waiting for the moment he can kill me…

Something does not feel right though… I feel like something bad is going to happen. But how? No one can get in this underground unless there is an insider…

An insider. Oh no. Why did I not think of this before? Damn, they are in trouble.

No wonder Phoenix knew where to find Raven in New York City.
