"Stargirl Missing" my friend asked as she helped herself to the last scone. It wasn't rude; in my Promethean form, my Doll body, Scones would make quite a mess inside!
"Yes, they must be beside themselves in Metropolis! I,,, I could of course,, if they needed help..."
My friend though saw through me.
"Do you suppose Jack will be there?"
I blinked. I hadn't seen Jack Knight since that lovely trip we took together,,, well, it started lovely.
"Maybe. It's been a long time, he's forgot all about me. Dolls do not linger long in the minds of humans."
My friend hugged me and smiled.
"As a human let me assure you, that I remember at best, half my boyfriends, but the names of every single doll I owned!"
"In that case, I need you to do something very intimate,, I wouldn't ask you but,, it is necessary. "
She stared and nodded.
"Please, wind my key, then turn it backwards, till the head comes off. That will hide my,,, identity."
"But, Wendy, you will have only two hours till you run down! What if,, what if..."
My mind was already on Jack, on Stargirl and all her lovely friends that had done so much for me in the past, if I could do anything to help her, I had to try, any doll would.
"hh,,Hi, Jack. You look good."
"Too long, Jack. Since the,"
"The Titanic. you wore blue, and diamonds, and fur, and smelled like heaven."
"Hey,, Doll, I lost you, it was chaos, and dark, all the screams.How did you make it out of there?"
I smirked with a shrug.
|"These furs are ruined....."|
"I am so sorry about Stargirl,,, what do we know, and can I help?"
He took me to a small brownstone in town,, but once inside, the wall decorations gave the location away.
He told me about her recent visits to the Lexx Club, Lex Luthor's nice swanky dance spot. He showed me the pictures, the items kept from before their disbanning, and regrouping,,, He told me of clues,,
"Doll, I've shown you the clues, we have put out the call, people will come to help. Wanna get a drink?"
I smirked and shook my head.
"You know what alcohol does to me."
We sat together in the cab, looking at the Daily Planet. The strike was in its second week, but they were talking about a settlement. They would much rather be back covering the news, and not being the news. Newsmen are like dolls.
"I've shown you everything. Got anything to go on?" He half smiled, with hope. After all we'd done, he had every right to hope, and I was glad to help.
"Yes. I put a few things together when i was standing back taking pictures. But you are going to need help, Jack. A lot of help."
He nodded and we walked through the park to the bus station.
"Yes, Jack. Hopefully with reinforcements."
"Gonna wear fur?"
But I was such a silly doll! Time was ticking! How long had it been? I jumped on the bus and that pressure in the thoracic cavity told me, be worried.
The pressure on my inner belly was the unwound spring. I cold barely stand when I got off the bus, and then barely walk... But if I calculated correctly I should have just enough to get home!
