i finally woke up, in metropolis. *sigh* i hope master lex didn't have to pay too dearly for my mistakes. i deserve everything that's happened to me and more. master lionel leaves me alone most of the time, besides the occasional slaps or blows to my face when he wants me awake. i'm trying very hard to be good. dominic has decided he can do what he pleases to me as well. i heard him talking to master lionel, that instead of sending me back, to let him take over my training. he has no loyalty to this family. he's merely waiting for lex to fail so he can take his place as next in line. that will never happen. i miss master lex. i hope he will forgive me.
