Connor didn’t want to be alone. He wanted nothing more than to return to the precinct, sit on his swirly chair, and listen to Gavin bitch and moan about whatever case he was working on. He wanted to update Hank on possible suspects, and discuss his work with Captain Fowler.
Connor wasn’t allowed to feel anything. To think for himself.
But he was.
And aside from panic, the first real emotion Connor had felt was a deep sense of self-loathing.
He had taken away a life.
He was a monster.
"I hope you know that I don’t only trust you to be Robin, but I trust you with every aspect of my life. You’re family now, Dami. And I want you to know that you can trust me too. With anything. I will always take your side. I’ll never assume the worst of you. You can trust me as much as you can trust that it’ll rain in Gotham tomorrow.”
Years after Dick spoke those words, Damian makes a mistake on patrol that ends up getting a criminal killed.
