Valentine selected a long strip of rubber from the supply kit, along with some jump leads and an inverter to hook up to a power point. He wrapped the piece of rubber around Blue Jay's neck, sliding it under the collar, separating the device from her skin and insulating it. He then attached the jump leads to the collar, putting several thousand volts through the device courtesy of the inverter; the steel ring sparked for a few moments, its lights pulsating, before, with a loud fizz, it shut off completely. Valentine pulled a pair of bolt cutters out of the supply kit and sliced through the collar like it was butter.

"All done," he said, smiling. "It's completely short-circuited. Every piece of electronics in there is fried. This same tactic works on everything from microwaves to alarms to jet fighters. Although don't try it with the latter - they have a tendency to blow up, and that's a hell of a mess to clean up."

He watched Blue Jay heal Audra, with a strange mixture of wonder and frustration. If he'd had Blue Jay before, he could have saved people. Saved Leo, for sure; maybe stopped Monica from turning against him. Wouldn't have done anything for Stephanie, though. That was his failure, and his alone.

"I can cook," he said, walking over to the fridge. "I sort of had to learn. My old girlfriend-" he paused. Was it right to have called her that? They'd never really discussed it officially. It had just happened. They'd been too busy running and fighting and killing to actually sort themselves out. Maybe if things had been different... no. He wouldn't dwell on that. Not in Blue Jay's presence. "-couldn't cook at all. Cooking became as much a survival skill as anything, given how unintentionally lethal her food tended to be," he finished, smiling at the memories.
