One night Oracle was scuba diving near Gotham City as part of an investivation. She encountered some scuba diving goons who roughed her up under water. They left her in the water. Oracle tried to make it back to the small dock she dived from. Her van was parked there. She didn't realize that she had been cut in the leg because she was paralyzed from the waist down. She lost a lot of blood and wasn't going to make it.
She spluttered and tried to cry out for help. Fortunately for Oracle Black Canary, a fellow Bird of Prey, couldn't sleep so she took a walk near the water. She heard the noise and came to the dock and could see someone in the water. She reached down to pull the person up and thought it looked like Oracle! Black Canary asked "Are you Oracle?" A voice said "Call me Barbara!" "Well you can call me Dinah! Don't you recognize me Barbara?" "Of course I do! I would recognize that butt anywhere!" "Very funny! Honey, you're bleeding a lot! I better get a tourniquet on that leg of yours!." Dina made a tourniquet and stopped the bleeding.
"I better get you to the ER, young lady." Dinah drove her to the ER. Barbara needed a bunch of stitches and a transfusion. Dinah donated blood for her and stayed at her bedside. By 9:00 the next morning Barbara was discharged from the ER and Dinah took her home. Barbara gave her directions to her apartment. Barbara got undressed and into her bed. Dinah asked her if she was hungry or just wanted to rest. "I need to sleep, Dinah, I'm so tired!" Dinah held her hand until she went to sleep and waited with her until she woke up.
Dinah heated up some chicken noodle soup and when Barbara woke up she was hungry. Dinah went back to her apartment and got some clothing and returned to Barbara. Dinah said she was going to stay with Barbara until she was okay.
By the next morning Barbara was feeling better. Dinah said "With your red hair I imagined you had a name like Bridget or Fiona. You look like a Celtic warrior princess!" Barbara responded "Maybe I am a warrior princess! I thought you looked like a Ursula or Helga. A Valkyrie or something like that." Then they talked about what happened while Barbara was swimming. Dinah said "The Birds of Prey" will mop up this case for you. Dinah led the Birds of Prey out to capture the crooks.
The crooks thought Barbara was dead so they were caught off-guard. Dinah returned to Barbara and reported their success. Barbara said "I'm tired of being so lonely. Will you stay with me a few more days?" "I'd love to. Now we get to be BFFs!"
