Three Years ago
It was a dry night the wind blew , down the dark streets of Gotham , Bruce sat at his desk deep in thought , Wondering about the new turn of events in the case, his short black hair dripping with sweat from the mask, His cape hung over the chairs as he brushed his chin with his index finger.
Something moved behind him, Moving on instinct he turned ready for anything, A man dressed in purple body armour stood across from him, The man was cocky leaning on his metal staff, Bruce reached round and pulled a bat A rang , But Bruce slipped up he should have attacked but his curiosity got the better of him, “Who are you and how did you get in this cave” He was no longer wearing the Bruce Wayne face , It had turned darker more menacing, There was no fear in those eyes , Only rage and pain.
The man moved flying at Batman with grace, It was a fast and expert battle each man not giving any ground, they danced around the giant coin Abe Lincoln watched from his place on the coin as each blow was blocked by another, They war ragged between the two men , Gagging for breath they stood under the Belly of a robot T-Rex, It green scales each made out of a light metal.
Sweat ran down each mans face, rolling of there noses to the floor, , One drip fell into Batman’s dark eyes forcing him to blink, The man in purple took this chance it was only a moment but that’s all he needed, flipping off his staff he landed at the T-Rex’s foot,, A smooth hand touched metallic a charge ran up the mans body into the might beast, with in seconds it exploded falling onto the Bat.
Moving into the wreckage the man pushed to find him, a think black blood poured from the Bruces mouth, Batman was gone, all that lay before him was Bruce Wayne cause in the end we start with what we had are names The man in Purple spoke “Ma name is Gambler, I came ere to finish you and to tell you , "You aint got what it takes ".
All of a sudden a large noise came from the cave “GAMBLER ! Arrows Rage filled him, The leader of the NAO saw his teacher lying under the wreckage, Arrow had trained under every master and Batman was one of them, He had battled along side him shoulder to shoulder , bleed with him He lay broken at the hands of this this monster, The rage furled him , For the first time he understood what Batman fought for, Why he pushed himself so hard, The explosion of Darkness filled the cave, the great coin fell, As did Gambler as he shot across the room, falling in a crumpled heap on the floor. “NAO , JUSTICE LEAGE “ he screamed over the Com links
Reaching Bruces side “BATMAN IS DOWN, I REPAT BATMAN IS DONE , CAVE SEND HELP”, Trying to speak Bruce looked at Arrow “Look after her , Look after Gotham ….”
A Dark Shadow sat on the wall of Arkyum the crazy tower cast a dark and sinister shadow on the city of Gotham, The mans raven black jacket hung from his slim body , the pale skin flashed in the moon light as he looked up at the window, “Gambler” He whispered to himself, Dropping to his feet the shadows followed, A com link opened “Arrow what the hell are you doing at Arkyum “ Shaking his head , Bruce had been less of a pain as the bat, Now he was in control of the Nao , who where looking after Gotham with the bat boys, It was never ending, “Nothing Bruce “ he sighed , “Well get your ass down to 3rd on west, We have a double homicide” and with that the dark figure was gone into the night. .
