Closure (Open to Murphy and/or Harry)
Dinah hadn't heard from Harry after the storm. She'd left a voicemail, but no answer. She wasn't sure whether to be hurt that he was taking the whole break thing to the extreme of avoiding her this much, or worried that something had happened.
She needed to find a way to move past this. She needed closure, and she needed to just rip off the band-aid, so to speak.
She still had the key to his apartment and the bracelet to get past his wards, though she hadn't been wearing it lately. It was just another reminder of him. She really needed to get that back, as she didn't want to be responsible for it falling into the wrong hands. Wayne Manor might have been relatively safe for the City, but with the types of things that Harry's wards protected against, Dinah doubted the defenses of the manor would help at all with that.
She really hadn't wanted to stop by the apartment. She was a little afraid that dropping by the apartment might just confirm that Murphy was still living there. So she'd tried the office first.
No dice. Apparently it just wasn't her day.
So Dinah steered her car toward Harry's apartment, trying to steel herself against what she might find there.
Maybe it would be better to find Murphy there, she reflected. Maybe it would be better to just confirm that things were really and truly over, instead of the half-waiting for things to somehow work themselves out.
Key and bracelet in hand, Dinah approached the door. She hesitated for just a minute and then knocked.
