"She's dead." I felt tears drip down my face before I knew I was crying. This can't be happening, Artemis can't be dead. She was one of my few friends on earth; she was my best friend on the Team. I flew into the Bio ship and sat down in the control seat. Then I lost it, the tears fell in rivers down my cheeks. After what seemed like eternity I heard Superboy land in the back of the Bio ship. I quickly wiped my eyes and started for the Cave. Conner sat down in his normal seat right in front of me and I could feel his sorrow also. Then he turned around and looked me in the eyes.

"I'm sorry," I blurted. "You were right, I was wrong. I do abuse my psychic powers because I can't imagine anything happening to anyone on the Team, or you. And you know I'm sorry for what I did to you that one time."

"M'gann, I…" he started but then he trailed off and I felt my heart sink. What if he didn't forgive me? What if he just didn't care anymore? What if… Stop. Thinking about What If's is not going to help, it will only make things worst. We sat in silence the rest of the way back. Once we had exited the Bio ship and entered the Cave, Artemis's funeral began.

After shifting my battle wear into normal clothes I sat on one of the couches and let lose. The tears trickled down my cheeks and I started to shake. I still can't believe Artemis is gone! Garfield came over and wrapped his arms around me. We sat there for about five minutes before I couldn't take it anymore.

"Garfield? I'm going to go start dinner, okay?" He nodded knowing that I just wanted to escape. I flew into the kitchen and started the stove and levitated the pot onto the burner. Then I heard some soft footsteps coming from behind me. I turned around and looked straight into Conner's eyes.

"I forgive you."


I know that this probably stunk but I got the idea and just had to write it down. It's set in episode 7 of season 2 right after Nightwing announced that Artemis is dead. I almost had a heart attack when I thought she had died! Now as for why I wrote this fic…I'm gonna be honest, I have no problem with La'gaan it's just that I think M'gann belongs with Conner. Let me know what you think!
