Desdemona understood that Jack was making a joke but humour was still out of her reach as he'd assumed. Desdemona looked back the hospital. "You don't have to fight Void."
"What do you mean? Of course we do. You said he was going to slaughter people in there." Jack said his hand itching for a blade.
Desdemona raised a hand and pointed, "Darklight is coming."
Jack turned and squinted but saw nothing. "No he's not."
"Just wait." She said quietly.
Jack looked frustrated. "If I wait what will happen?"
"What's supposed to happen." Desdesmona said cryptically.
Jack stood with his hands on his hips, "And what exactly is supposed to happen?"
Desdemona reached out and caressed Jack's cheek with her fingers, "Something you won't like." She watched as Jack's eyelids fluttered and he fell asleep. She caught his limp form before he could fall to the ground. She didn't like having to do that, but if she didn't she knew that Jack's fate would be just as bad as the doomed Void's.
She lowered Jack gently to the ground and waited. Then she saw Darklight approach. He spotted them and landed on the roof. "What's wrong with Jack?" He demanded.
"He was over eager to help you defeat Void." Desdemona told.
"What did you do to him?" Darklight said and attempted to be intimidating, it did nothing to Desdemona.
"He's sleeping. I didn't want him to get hurt." Desdemona told.
Darklight's face softened. "So you did it to protect him?"
"Yes," Desdemona confirmed.
Darklight leant down to check Jack's life signs and was satisfied. "Okay I believe you. You need to get him out of here while he's asleep. I don't want him used as leverage."
Desdemona gave a nod, "Very well but I will return."
"I don't need your help." Darklight said not wanting another person involved who could potentially be hurt.
"I'm not here to help." Desdemona stated.
"So what are you intentions?" Darklight said as he stood to his full height.
"To wait for the outcome." Desdemona said, not wanting to explain herself yet again.
"And then what?" Darklight asked.
"I mean you no harm if that's what you ask." Desdemona told.
"You're a strange one." Darklight said.
"You've got no idea." Desdemona replied as she picked up Jack as if he weighed nothing. She lifted into the air to take him some place safe. Then she would wake him and return.
