Calling in the calvary
To say that leaving Helena by herself in Khandaq at the hands of Black Adam unsettled Barbara was a bit of an understatement. She hadn't stopped worrying about her teammate and friend since she had left with the rest of the Birds.

She didn't trust Black Adam. The fact that he just wanted Helena, and not the rest of them struck several nerves, and she wasn't just going to let Helena be stuck there at the mercy of someone that they didn't know all that much about.

The second she got back to Gotham, Barbara wheeled her way into her control room and fired up all her systems.

She could call the JLA, or Batman, even. But right now, she'd call someone that Helena trusted.

In a matter of minutes, Barbara got a secure comm line out to a certain hero in Star City.

"Arsenal, this is Oracle. Do you copy?"

"Oracle! How was the vacation? Did you all have a good time? Wait, no, better question: are there incriminating pictures?" Roy asks, firing a boxing glove arrow at a purse snatcher.

"The vacation could have gone better, Arsenal," Barbara said. The sound of her typing could be heard over the comm line.

"I have reason to believe that Huntress is being held against her will, which is why we're back early. Are you familiar with Black Adam and Khandaq?"

That catches Roy's attention.

"Black Adam kidnapped Huntress? When? How?" Roy asks.

"Tell me everything." he says, readying himself to hear just how /this/ happened.

Barbara explained everything to Roy. How they had been forced to land the Blackhawk in Khandaq. How Black Adam had interrogated him. How he suddenly let them off the hook when under the condition that Helena stay with him for a week.

"He says no harm will come to her, but I personally think it's a load of crap," Oracle said, her irritation clear through the synthesized voice.

For the seventh time, Roy interrupts Babs.

"You. Left. Her. In Khandaq. With That Psycho?" Roy asks again.

"Get me a plane, Babs. I'm going to go get Helena out of there." he says, already on his way home. He just had to get someone to watch Lian for a week or so.

"Do you think I wanted to leave her there?" Barbara snapped, a little irritated.

"I can get you a plane," she said, already working on it.

"Good. Just let me know when it's ready and I'll be on it. Also, don't call anyone else. If Adam thinks we're invading, he might try to hurt Helena." Roy says.

"Wasn't planning on calling anyone else," Barbara said before hanging up.

An hour later, Roy would get a call back saying that everything was in order.

Roy thanks the Babs and gets his gear. He kisses Lian on the forehead.

"Now, you mind what Mia says and don't give her any trouble. And you are /not/ allowed to have ice cream for every meal." Roy says.

He knew how sneaky Lian could be if allowed.

"What about for just breakfast and lunch? I'll have pizza for dinner," Lian said, giggling a little.

She's joking. Maybe.

"How about /no/? I've given Mia some direction on what to set you up with for dinner over the next week. Make sure you do your homework and be ready for Mia to pick you up when you're out of school, Short Stuff.

Got it? Give your old man a hug and kiss." Roy says.

"Can I have Cerdian over?" Lian asked, hugging her Dad and kissing him on the cheek.

"If his parents are cool with it, then I am, too." Roy says.

"Awesome," Lian hugged him again. "Good luck, Daddy."
