Black Widow #14

After discovering the auction is for meta-humans, and that Lucy and Anya have been captured and are not part of the menu, Black Widow orders Yelena to finish the mission and get everyone out safely while she deals with the Living Blade. The parts of the issue not focused on Lucy and Anya making use of the twins to find their own escape, and Yelena scaring the shit out of all the guests to force them to leave, has Nat on the run learning what she can about the situation. 

In a somewhat surprising turn, after it appears everyone is on their way to safety and the Living Blade poses no current threat, Black Widow reengages the assassin when she could flee to fight another day (with back-up, like say the Avengers) rather than pick a fight she knows she can't win. The early results in their latest encounter don't look good for our girl.
