The Dark Knight Lives (FIFTY-FIVE)

Katherine was still furious that Lucius Fox had been attacked so viciously by this teenager in a dark blue suit but as he and the older gentleman, a man named Alfred, talked as if they were best buddies she could only follow along with the shenanigans.

Robin seemed shocked to see her.

“Kate, once again, what are you doing here?” he asked her.

“Lucius brought me,” she replied bluntly, crossing her arms.

“And what’s so special about you?” he asked.

She smirked. “Everyone has their secrets. I won’t tell you unless you tell me who you really are.”

Robin scoffed. “Like that’s going to happen.” He stepped toward her. “You’re intruding, by the way. I could ask you out.”

Katherine stepped toward him in turn. “I’m not going anywhere.”

The teenager, whoever she was, placed her hands on their shoulders in a calming manner.

“Chill, chill, we’re all friends here.”

Katherine shrugged off her embrace. “We’re not friends. Just because you’re Robin doesn’t make you special.”

“I just met you,” Robin continued. “What gives you the right to think you understand everything more than I do? I’ve been fighting on the streets of Gotham for years. You just showed up.”

Fox, aware of the argument taking place several feet away from him and Alfred, approached, the butler trailing his footsteps.

“Let me clear this up,” Lucius began.

Everyone turned to look at him.

“I know this unconventional but I wasn’t expecting guests here,” Lucius began. He looked at Robin and the masked teenager. “You might as well reveal yourselves, for you’re standing in front of the one responsible for the Bat-signal that caused all of the ruckuses last night.”

Robin and the girl looked at Katherine in clear confusion.

“Wait a minute.” Robin turned to her. “You’re…Batman?”

Katherine smirked, once again crossing her arms. “Batwoman. The name’s Batwoman.”

The teenager’s jaw dropped before bouncing on the balls of her feet in sheer excitement. “Damn, you’re Batwoman? Oh my gosh, I think I’m fangirling right now.”

Robin seemed just as shocked. “Batwoman, huh? Well…” he took off his mask, “I guess since we’re not keeping any secrets, I’m Blake Lively.”

“The former cop?” Katherine said. “Never would’ve guessed that.”

Gloria took off her own mask, extending her hand to shake Katherine’s. “Gloria…Gloria Ramirez.”

Katherine shook her hand. “Nice to meet you.” She glanced at Lively who suddenly seemed older without the mask. “The both of you.”

He smiled.

The butler chuckled. “Well, this is different.”

Lucius chuckled along with him. “If Bruce Wayne could see us now.”
