She's tried so many times to sum up her feelings. She's tried to sit down and write her heroine a letter many times, but she can never find the right words to describe just what exactly she means to her. She knows why she sent her back to her parents, and she appreciates it. There are days she loves being back with her mom and dad, but there's never a day she doesn't miss Selina.
It isn't just how she cared for her. It isn't simply the fact that she gave her a home when she had none or provided her with clothes and looks for which most girls her age would practically kill. It isn't even the fact that she gave her a reason to live when she thought she had none and a life that matters.
Selina reached something deep inside of her that no one else has ever touched. She found the girl that she didn't think she could be and breathed life into her. She found her heart and filled it with love. She made Ari the girl she is today, the girl who wouldn't back down when her parents were in danger and who will never back down from the life she knows she wants.
She'll finish school, maybe even college, but then she's going back to Gotham. She's going to find her Catwoman again, and together, with whatever clowder of cats she has then, they're going to be a family again. Ari can't wait.
