lost_arrow: Dinah comforting Roy in the original drug story (Dinah and Roy Addiction)
"I've found out why people laugh. They laugh because it hurts... because it's the only thing that'll make it stop hurting." Robert A. Heinlein

It must have been the fact he no longer made the horrible one-liners, never tried to cover it up with a joke, never hid behind the laugh so the pain wouldn't show.

Something had tipped Dinah off. Something had made her see that the rebound of joining the League had faded, that he knew his life was still in the toilet.

Lashing out at her, right when she was coping with Ollie falling back under Hal's sway? Had so not been cool. She'd always only wanted to help. She'd tried so damn hard to be there...and he pushed her as hard away as he could.

He listened one more time to the weak joke she had made about him being right, and that she and Ollie were divorcing, listened as he heard her voice crack when she asked him to call her.

No laughing matter anymore...but he was tired of failing to be who people thought he was. Better to just keep the break the way it was, and let her move on without him as a chain around her neck.
