The three went through almost an entire wing of Watchtower however nothing triggered Tabitha’s memory, much to J’onn’s disappointment. When they approached a hallway with a view of outer space, she immediately stopped and looked outside.
“Oh, wow… are we in space? Cool…” she smiled a little. As she continued to look out of the panoramic window, Bruce and Wally approached her guides. The professor gave them a light smile.
“Mr. Wayne, Wally; good to see you two back on your feet!”
“It’s good to be back.” Bruce nodded. His attention immediately went towards Tabitha as she continued to marvel at the atmosphere, “How is she?”
“She’s completely healthy, aside from the memory loss.”
“She still doesn’t remember anything?” he wanted the question to stay inside of his head. He studied the Martian as he looked at Tabitha as well, “Is she still afraid of you?”
“I don’t believe so.” he was at least happy about that. Wally approached the young woman and looked into space with her.
“… Pretty neat, huh?”
“Yeah…” she breathed. She looked at him and immediately stuck her hand out, “I’m Tabitha.” she introduced. It was enough to produce a smile from Wally as he shook her hand.
“Oh; you… probably already knew who I was, huh?” she realized and he nodded, “I must be pretty important; everyone seems to know me around here.”
“You’ve been here for three years, now. Every day, you do something that impresses everyone, just about. You might’ve figured this out but the Martian? He’s pretty much the cream of the crop here but you’ve beaten him in chess and training!” he explained. It was enough for her to shoot a quick look at J’onn.
“Yep! You can make almost anything indestructible. You’ve even beaten me quite a few times when we race and I’m the fastest man alive!” he continued. She let out a snort and covered her mouth to keep her laugh from escaping, “… What’s so funny?”
“The fastest man alive? I wouldn’t brag too much about that…” she smirked. Bruce cleared his throat to keep from laughing as Jamila shared a snort with her best friend.
“Touché, Tabs! Why hadn’t I thought of that before?” she cheered. Wally shook his head in defeat.
“I believe she was referring to…”
“I know what she was referring to, J’onn!”
“I’m sorry…” Tabitha tried not to laugh.
“It’s okay; I get that a lot… just surprised that it was from you this time…” he sighed but finally let out a small laugh.
“Wally… you weren’t making that stuff up, were you? You know; just to make me feel better?” she decided to try to change the subject. She found it slightly unbelievable that she was capable of doing the things he mentioned.
“No way! Are you kidding me? You’re one of the best members we got! To be honest, now that I think about it… you’re the most important one!”
“… I’m not in charge… am I? Because that would be pretty hard to believe!”
“No. But you’re the reason Watchtower itself functions right. We used to have non-superhero guys come here and do the repairs, maintain Watchtower and all that. But, when you came along… you replaced all of them.” Wally kept his smile.
“Really?! Whoa! How many people did I replace…?”
“Roughly fifteen.” J’onn joined in. The woman just shook her head.
“Unbelievable…” she said and dwelled on that thought. She was important and powerful enough to take care of Watchtower without help; it was no wonder everyone was truly concerned about her memory loss, she figured. She had a feeling that it was actually a small part of their reason to be concerned; she did feel that the people who she’d come across so far genuinely cared for her, especially the Martian. She blushed at the thought and looked back out of the window, “Um… are we going to continue the tour or… can I stay here for a while?”
“Whatever you like, Tabitha.” J’onn told her. She nodded and glanced at the group.
“I’d like to stay here for a while, then.”
“Do you want to be alone?” Bruce asked. She immediately shook her head.
“This place is ginormous; I don’t want to get lost! Besides; I have a feeling that you all know me the best… and I have a lot of questions for you!”
