A few weeks ago, Renee Montoya did what she thinks someone really should have done several months ago.

She hauled a punching bag out to the Carribean inlet so she could beat the crap out of something in a place where it isn't snowing. She's many things, including self-destructive, but she's not a masochist.

She's out there this evening, in a sports bra and shorts, working away at the leather in the cooling twilight.

Screw fake 'Scotland'. This is the way to do it.

After her trip to the garage with Rachel, Helena still has a lot of pent up tension, so she's taken to the grounds of Milliways for another run, tromping through the snow in not much more than sweats and a hoodie and sneakers.

For this stage of her recovery she's pushing herself far too hard through the snow and the cold air.

Renee isn't the only one who can be self-destructive...

Helena stumbles to a halt, breathing hard when she hears Renee's voice.

It's funny how Renee is both the person Helena wants to see least and the one she wants to see the most at the same time.

"Hey," she calls back, voice hoarse as she makes her way towards the inlet.

Why not? even if Renee is going to yell at her it looks warmer there then it is here.

"Wasn't planning on it, no..." she says, frowning and drawing her arms across her chest: trying not to shiver too much from cold.

She does so, crossing to the little beach and feeling the change in temperature immediately. It's a relief to Helena, to feel the warmth after her cold run, yes, but also to feel the sun after the long cold winter in Gotham.

She tilts her head back, feeling the warmth on her face and letting herself relax, even if just a little.

"I didn't even know this place was here...

But it's probably better that way," she says, rolling her shoulders and neck to stretch the muscles. "If everyone came here wouldn't it spoil it?"

Helena kicks of her wet shoes and looks out to the little inlet too. Unlike the lake the water here actually looks like it might be warm.

She kicks of her wet shoes and socks and tests the water with a toe.




Quiet. Lovely. The only problem with quiet is that it can't block out Helena's thoughts and now that she knows Renee isn't going to yell at her the only thing on her mind is that damn Batmobile.

Helena shrugs.

"Should by okay by now.

"Probably wouldn't recommend it in this water though..."
baptizemyself: (Helena and Renee: I believe in you)

"I'm not scared of anything," she says firmly, looking over her shoulder, an eyebrow raised.

But of course now she has to prove that.

She turns back to the inlet and slips her sweater off over her head and tugging off her pants, leaving her in only a black sports bra a pair of black cotton panties.

And she's suddenly very aware that Renee is watching her.

Feeling awkward in just her underwear she starts wading into the water.

"Coming?"

"Watch it!" she calls when she gets splashed.

She dives in after Renee, ignoring any twinges in her side as she swims.

It feels good to be using her whole body again.

"It is," she agrees, rolling on to her back and just basking in the water.

"You do this a lot?"

[personal profile] baptizemyself 2011-02-03 12:41 am (UTC)(link)
"Maybe we should do it more often. It's nice here."

Nice enough that she is is determined not to think about the B word. Not when Renee is here. Not when it's so relaxing.

"Next time we'll plan it in advance. Maybe bring a picnic."

Helena cant remember when she last had time to relax at the beach with a picnic. Maybe not since she was in Sicily, before Sal was arrested.

"What are you doing?" she asks, laughing a little as Renee appears again.
