Recap: Someone has been following Marinette, she finally finds out who it was. Jason wants to "rescue" Damian and take him to Bruce.
Jason didn't know why he responded the way he did. And judging everyone's reactions he knew he had made a mistake. Except he hadn't because it turned out that the person who was taking care of his brother was just as crazy and ruthless as Talia had described.
Yet this Marinette Dupain-Cheng was so good at hiding it that she managed to trick him into thinking that Talia was being too dramatic. She told him that the woman who kidnapped Damian held some magical jewelry which she used to get superpowers and when combined the holder could become unbelievably powerful.
According to her, the reason why she kidnapped his brother was to train him to use the two miraculous? Or whatever they were called.
The last thing Jason would ever want to do would be to give Bruce a kid to take care of. But from the very beginning when he started to look for Damian he knew that literally anything would be better than being raised by the league of assassins. And being used to destroy the world wasn't any better.
Now Jason had no interest in stopping a world destroying event. He had left the whole hero/vigilante business behind. But he wasn't about to allow a five-foot tall maniac french woman use his brother as her minion, so it seemed perfectly reasonable to continue with the original plan.
Marinette didn't seem to agree because as soon as the shock wore off, her eyes flashed dangerously. In a blink of an eye she had disappeared from where she had been standing, pushed his chair backwards towards a wall behind him.
"Over my dead body." She growled.
Jason smirked. "That could be arranged."
Marinette knew it was pointless to get so aggravated over Jason's words. She should at least confirm that what he was saying was true first. She didn't even know who his so-called "father" was. But Marinette felt it was safe to assume that he wasn't someone she wanted near her son.
Feeling her anger. Adrien placed a hand on her shoulder. "Mari, please calm down." He whispered.
Marinette took a deep breath. She needed to be smart about this. Whether she liked it or not, Jason still had the information that she needed. She needed to test him first. "You're bluffing."
Jason laughed. "About you dying? I can assure you that-"
"She is not talking about that, you idiot." Kagami interrupted. "How do we know that you are actually related to Damian."
"I never said we were related, so I'm afraid DNA tests won't help much." He said, fake pity coating his words.
Adrien figured out what he was saying first. "Adopted then? Then who is your father?"
This time he didn't respond. Instead, Jason just looked away scowling.
"Who is he?" Marinette demanded.
"Who. Is. Your. Father."
The silence lasted for a couple of minutes until it was broken by the ring of Marinette's phone. Marinette gritted her teeth. This was really not a good time.
"You wanna get that? I'll wait." Jason said with a smirk.
Marinette wanted to ignore the call so badly, and erase the smirk on Jason's face. But any vengeful feeling quickly dissipated when she realized that Damian was calling her.
"I'll be right back." Marinette said to her friends then walked into the now empty café. "Hi sweetie."
"Mom, I will explain what happened later." Damian said in a rushed whisper. "But just know that-" he was cut off by one of his teachers saying something like "Young man why do you have your phone out in school" though Marinette couldn’t be sure because Damian had hung up.
Oh boy .
Marinette tried to work out what had just occurred. Damian had probably gotten in trouble. If not then he definitely was now that he used his phone in school. Marinette looked at her phone expectantly and waited for the school to call.
She didn't have to wait long. "Hello?" She said to her phone.
"Good afternoon Ms Dupain-Cheng. This is Ms. Mariah speaking. I have called because your son, Damian, has been caught hiding a kitten in the school's playground with one of his classmates."
Marinette blinked. "A… kitten?" And with one of his classmates? She added mentally.
"Yes ma'am, now Damian said that he found the kitten this morning. It looks pretty malnourished, so it was probably lost or abandoned. As an animal lover myself, I have no problem in rescuing the poor thing." Marinette hummed in agreement. "but unfortunately Damian didn't tell a teacher about the kitten until one of my colleagues caught him trying to sneak out food."
Marinette smiled. That sounded like Damian. "And I am very sorry about that." Marinette replied.
Ms. Mariah chuckled. "Well the reason I called you was because we can't keep the kitten here, I offered to take him to an animal rescue, but Damian insisted that you could come pick it up?"
Marinette looked at the door that led to the storage briefly. She could continue interrogating Jason later, her son was first. "Oh yes, of course. I'll pick it up, no problem."
"Marvelous, now as for disciplinary action, Damian will probably just miss a couple of recesses since in the end he was just trying to take care of an animal in need, though it might be more than his classmate since he also had his phone out."
Marinette nodded. "Of course, and I will talk to him about it as well." Ms Mariah gave an appreciative hum and the two bid farewell.
Marinette walked back to the storage room. "I have to go." She whispered to Adrien and Kagami.
"What? And what about him?" Adrien motioned towards Jason. "I can't keep the café closed for forever you know?"
Marinette winced. "I know. I'm so sorry, it will be quick, I promise, and when I get back I'll figure out what to do about him."
Kagami nodded. "I will continue interrogating him while you are gone. Perhaps we can learn more useful information."
Marinette smiled. "Thank you."
Marinette rushed into the school, and was quickly greeted by Ms. Mariah. She led her to the playground where there were some kids gathered around Damian and a girl Marinette didn't recognize. As she got closer, Marinette noticed the small ball of fur between the two.
Marinette had to admit that the kitten was adorable. It was gray with a white patch of fur in the chest and paws. It looked very scrawny and dirty but other than that it looked pretty healthy.
Marinette got closer as the teachers ushered all the other kids inside. Marinette knelt down next to her son. "Hi kids."
Damian didn't look away from the kitten. "Hello mom. This is Bellerose." He said, tiling his head towards the girl next to him.
The little girl giggled, rolling her eyes slightly. She scooted closer to Marinette and stuck her hand out. "My names is Sophie." She chirped. "I don't understand why Dami keeps calling me by my last name." She continued "but it's very nice to meet you Ms. Dupain-Cheng!"
Marinette shook her hand, "It's nice to meet you too." She said with a warm smile. Trying to keep her cool while she was internally freaking out because: 1.) Her son had made a friend! 2.) She called him Dami! 3.) And was absolutely adorable in a sparkly headband, and a unicorn t-shirt.
Marinette was really curious to know how that friendship even began, but she knew better than to embarrass Damian with questions, so she held back her excitement.
"Well I have to go back to work soon," Marinette said while looking at the kitten who was now playing with Damian's shoelace. "Can I take um-"
"Princess!" Sophie filled in.
Marinette laughed as she saw her son's horrified face. "We are not naming her princess!" He said firmly.
"-the kitten home?" Marinette said quickly to avoid conflict.
"She needs to go to the vet first." Damian said sternly while placing the kitten in her arms.
"Yes!" Sophie agreed, then grimaced. "And she needs a bath too."
Marinette nodded as she stood up. "Okay! Well, I will see you soon honey." She said to Damian, then turned to Sophie. "And it was fantastic to meet you Sophie."
"Bye mom," Damian mumbled as she kissed the top of his head.
"Goodbye Ms. Dupain-Cheng!"
Marinette walked back to her car holding the kitten close. She was a lot calmer than Marinette expected. Though it was probably because she was sleepy. By the time they reached the car the kitten had her eyes closed and was purring away.
As she drove to the vet, Marinette thought about all the questions that still needed answers. Being at Damian's school was a nice distraction but now all the events of the day were clouding her mind.
She needed to find out who Damian's father was. And make sure he would never hurt or take away her son.
Marinette was suddenly struck with an idea.
She had a plan.
