despite the silence
Nothing much is known about National City’s mysterious superhero, except that she never talks. That hasn’t changed in the five years she’s been the people’s guardian, and despite interacting with her often in her line of work, emergency responder Alex Danvers has grown accustomed to their silent communications
Except then the woman saves her life, and speaks to her, and Alex realises that maybe their superhero needs saving herself.
Alex has had her fair share of awful nights. She’s lost count of the amount of times she’s held someone’s life in her hands, trying to reassure them that everything will be okay while simultaneously trying to keep them alive until they reach the hospital. She’s seen horribly broken bones and twisted limbs and enough blood to leave her numb sometimes, but it’s always worth it for the lives she does manage to save.
Waking up with a splitting headache and a bump the size of an egg on the back of her head has to rank among her worst nights yet.
Especially since she has no idea where she is.
