-Perfect by nature
Icons of self indulgence
Just what we all need,
more lies about a world that
Never was and never will be
Have you no shame, don't you see me
You know you've got everybody fooled
Look here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder
Oh how we love you
No flaws when you're pretending
but now I know she
Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me
And somehow you've got everybody fooled
Without the mask where will you hide?
Can't find yourself lost in your lie-
He dreaded the day she came back from that place.
He dreaded meeting up with her and others, watching her sudden new and improved attitude.
She thought she was better than them, because she accepted defeat and got training. She allowed the government to keep tabs on her, tell her what she could and could not do as a person, made her into an object that had to be kept in check.
And she thought she was better than them for it.
He dreaded the day when she came back and said they were a team, said she was one of them, a young avenger.
Billy stared icily as Kate enveloped Cassie's small frame in a hug, as Eli rolled his eyes at her giggling. He glared when Teddy picked her up in a huge skrull crushing hug, as Vision placed a kiss on her temple and welcomed her in his cold arms.
They may have been able to forgive her, for choosing to fight on the other side.
But Billy would never be able to look at her with any amount of love ever again.
She betrayed them, betrayed him.
She was the reason he had scars running a long side his back, on his arms, legs, wrists, ankles, ears.
She was the reason he couldn't sleep for more than three hours at a time.
She was the reason his nightmares woke him, heaving up his dinner.
He didn't have a problem with hating her, just as she had no problem blaming everything on him, on Tommy, on the Scarlet Witch, his real mother.
She had no problem pointing out any of their faults; obviously it was because she was so high above them.
"I see the conniving bitch is back."
Tommy, his arrogant, annoying, sarcastic twin brother.
His twin brother that Cassie wished they hadn't broken out of juvie.
His twin brother that Cassie would have rather left, being tortured and tested on his whole teenage life.
"Back-stabbing, Tommy, its backstabbing bitch."
Tommy chuckles and it rumbles through Billy's body, he's standing so close.
The others could forgive Cassie, but him and Tommy; they were just beginning to blame.
Cassie made him sit at night, curled up on the couch, telling himself that he wasn't a killer, he didn't want to see someone suffer.
But he did, and he wanted to be the cause of Cassie's suffering.
One day, that want would consume him and he wouldn't even try to hold back.
One day, Cassie Lang was going to meat William Kaplan and she was going to run screaming.
