"Superboy, NO!" I screamed, pulling him back.
"We've been chasing them for an HOUR!" he groaned.
Aqualad finally caught up to us, his silver eyes glowering. "If we kill them, we're no better than they are."
Superboy glared and followed Aqualad and me, who were after the two crooks. They had bags of jewelry slung over their shoulders, but were ahead of us. I sent another Batarang at them, but that didn't stop them.
I used my Bat-rope and swung to the buildings, where I saw them better from the skies.
Almost there... I thought. Finally, I leaped off the building, and grabbed onto a landing. I jumped a few feet below, crashing into the both of them.
"Gotcha!" I shouted, as Aqualad and Superboy stood before us. "We're taking tu to--"
Before I could finish, a deafening boom erupted through the skies, sending the five us flying backward. Smoke was covering every inch of land, making it hard to see.
"Erica, where are you?" Aqualad called mentally.
I'm not sure, I answered, coughing. After what seemed like forever, the smoke cleared. The two criminals were nowhere to be found.
Superboy frowned. "They got away!"
"I know, but look!" I pointed in front of us.
What used to be an abandoned alley, stood the remains of buildings. I gasped as I took in the sight.
There was a giant, gaping hole pointing into space.
