The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-FOUR)

Remembering. It was driving The Penguin to do great things, to be the best person that he could be. Remembering how he rose from the darkness of the sewers to become a crime lord titan, hidden away in the shadows and operating under the guise of a simple entity. An entity that now struck fear in the hearts of all who heard it.

And now, he could see that power he had gained on the verge of crumbling before his very eyes. With each day that passed Robin’s revelation of The Penguin’s true identity as Mayor came close to being unveiled. And if that happened, everything he had built, everything that he had sacrificed would go up in a puff of smoke.

A new day had arrived. Commissioner Gordon’s funeral was today; a funeral he was expected to attend. Robin would probably be there. He would practically be standing beside the enemy. The enemy that could blow his cover with a simple exclamation. The thought was terrifying, to say the least, but he had a backup plan if it came to that.

He took a deep breath before leaving his office. He was ready for the day.
