The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-THREE)

It was late at night and Gotham was mostly silent. Inhabitants of the city were either in their homes preparing for the festivities of the coming day or scared to death because of the recent events transpiring in Gotham.

The police depot was just as quiet. Police officers had either retired to their homes to spend time with their families before the big day or were silently lurking about the station.

Commissioner Gordon couldn’t sleep, choosing to stay at the depot. There was something unnerving about having two prisoners as dangerous as Harley Quinn and the other one who refused to reveal her name in the station. Whoever they were working for could get the bright idea to try and bust them out. And what would he do in that situation? Three-fourths of Gotham’s police force was away and the last fourth surely wasn’t prepared for a potential attack. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-THREE)

The Dark Knight Lives (NINETEEN)

When dusk arrived Lieutenant Lynx knew Robin wouldn’t be found. He had gone missing without so much as a trace and she couldn’t stop thinking about how much trouble he could be in.

No, she had never been on great terms with him but Gotham needed him. And with so many terrible things happening at such a rapid pace, losing Robin felt like a punch to the gut.

She entered the police depot, her feet shuffling across the floor of the building from sheer exhaustion. She hadn’t gotten any rest for two days and the weight of the sorrow falling upon her from Gotham’s incessant villainy was heavy. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (NINETEEN)

The Dark Knight Lives (SEVENTEEN)

Commissioner Gordon was sitting in his office, his expression grim as he rested his elbows on the armrests at his sides, his hands clasped as he remained in deep thought.

His lieutenant was out combing Gotham with several units of the police force looking for Robin but Gordon knew better. If he hadn’t been discovered yet he was probably dead. The thought was numbing. With Robin dead, The Penguin, whoever he was, would be able to do whatever he pleased, for the police force wasn’t strong enough to stop what seemed to be a secret invasion on the very heart of the city.

The Dark Knight Lives (ELEVEN)

An elderly African-American man climbs the steps to the courthouse in the wee hours of the morning. The sky is just beginning to become a navy blue color, revealing the arrival of sunrise but the streets are still alight with the glow of the lampposts. The man is a judge and his name is Thomas Mayer.

He’s the most prominent judge in Gotham. In short, he was hated by most who lived in Gotham, for his strict ways kept crime low in the city, and with crime came loads of money. Even the wealthy businessmen and women in Gotham had shady dealings in the black market, making Judge Mayer someone they’d rather have eliminated. But Mayer didn’t care if he was hated. In fact, he loved it because it meant he was doing his job properly. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (ELEVEN)

The Dark Knight Lives (SIX)

The newly elected mayor Barber Anistello couldn’t believe his ears when he learned his father’s best friend, Charles Dawgs, one of the most inspiring role models in young Anistello’s life, had been found half out of his mind and naked on Gotham Boulevard. And, to make things even worse, four bodies had been found in the river. The bodies belonged to the good friends of the city’s most prominent judges. Something was going on and Anistello wasn’t ready for it. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (SIX)
