    Bookmark Notes:

    The urge to say something is still there. She has to say something, but she doesn’t know what. “Hey, Dick,” she calls anyway. Dick turns.

    They look at each other. Somewhere in the distance, a siren is howling. She can hear people chattering, laughing, crying. Yelling. Gotham noises. Stereo blaring somewhere, and at another place, someone playing a piano badly. Maybe a gunshot or two. Dick’s face looks like a marble statue, precariously angled and silent, cold.

    She doesn’t know what it is. Why she even cares that much, why it pops in her brain every once in a while, even if they don’t really see each other routinely anymore. Those scars on his arms. That blank look on his face. The growing gap.

    Sometimes she sees Dick, in class, two rows in front of her, staring into the distance. Looking so weary like he has the whole world on his shoulders. She doesn't know why it looks so fucking lonely. She’d like to think it’s just her imagination. But if anything, Anita is a realist. It is not a crush, not some dumb form of romanticization.

    “You know, about what we talked about earlier,” she says. “The strays. You said that you could try. But you don’t have to. It’s– it’s none of your business. You can just — walk away.”

    It’s not really about the cat or the tiger anymore. Dick looks at her. The light flickers – she should change that bulb. Something in his face softens, and it makes him look more human, less statuesque. More like a boy. “No,” he answers like it’s the easiest question in the world, like it's the only thing he's ever sure of. “I can’t.”
