A contrast of evenings, in The Soul Blade Chapter 28.
Brenna's portion of the chapter is a return to the cycle of action-reaction, with Brenna winding down with family. However, an editing pass removed yet another anti-Amy moment for Brenna. Try to spot where it was.
I debated about keeping the conversation about the waiter. Remember, one of the Soul Blade's goals is to have a next generation to be passed to. My thinking of the time is that the Blade is aware that the best way is if both wielder and potential mate are attracted to each other. Gay men, who tend to not have a sexual interest in women, would be a poor choice of mate. The Blade is Brenna's gaydar.
Part of Brenna's development was that she wanted to be a fashion designer as a teen. She's an artist and loves sketching. Getting the Blade created disruption in her life, and until the dosage of her meds was adjusted. Going to college was impossible for Brenna, so she dropped out. To be fair, most superheroes can have a regular job as well as their dual life. Just look at Superman and Dazzler. Both have careers on top of being heroes. Brenna wants her life back on track.
Tricia has her plans in motion. An illegal gun sale for an untraceable revolver. Now that Tricia's gun is revealed, it does need to go off. The point of the scene was to show her getting the gun. Tricia never buys off the rack.
