The Dark Knight Lives (EIGHT)

Gloria Ramirez was a highschool phenom, or at least that’s what everyone else said she was. She was a star wrestler, martial artist, track star and she was always at the top of all of her classes. Plus, she had the looks too.

As he tried to reach up and touch his face he soon learned that chains were wrapped around his wrists, preventing him from moving his wrists but a few inches in every direction.

He struggled against the chains for nearly a minute until he realized that his struggling was futile. He rested back against the cold wall, closing his eyes and taking a deep breath. And then he heard footsteps. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Forty-Five
