Delirium was standing around amidst the chaos. the in mates killing eachother, guards trying to stop them, it was as arkhem asylum should be, crazy. she would stop the criminals from killing the guards, but she couldn't stop them killing eachother. "teehee, this is so fun." she said, she watched as her sister death lurked in the shadows, writing tally marks in her book for all the death she had to take care of that night, she would wait till the fights calmed down then take the souls, let them feel the fear criminals like them deserve, before taking their souls to their final resting place.
With a subtle sigh, I close my eyes and sit for a moment. I listen to the sounds being produced within the building. The uproar was becoming catastrophic. Opening my eyes, I teleport inside of Arkham. A fist comes straight towards me, and I narrowly avoid getting hit. As I dip down, the man strikes the one who had been behind me square in the face. I wince, hearing the cracking of a broken nose. Muttering an apology, I somersault away and then spot Delirium.
"Hey!" I shout, dodging another punch. "What is!" I bend back, and as the arm soars over me I drop to the ground and bring my legs up. I wrap my legs around large man's forearm and then chuck him behind me. I then flip back to my feet and finish what I was trying to say, "What in the world is going on!?"
"It's a riot!"Delirium said squeeling with joy. "I guess you used my powers to find your way back to our world?" she asked as she turned a criminal into a flower before he stabbed a guard. "YOU'RE WELCOME!" she shouted at the guard, she then began skipping about as if she where in a field of flowers, and not in the middle of a prison riot.
"I can clearly see that." I grumble to myself as I glance around, watching the violence unfold. If things don't get under control, then this will spread into Gotham. My hands form fists and my brows furrow at those thoughts. I snarl under my breath, "This has to stop."
I throw my arms out wide and shout at the top of my lungs, "EVERYONE FREEZE!"
On command, every single person is suddenly frozen and in mid-action. I was shocked. It actually worked!
"Huh. I do have more control than I had thought." I smirk and brush the invisible dirt off my suit. Then I bite the inside of my lip, and sigh, "But now what am I supposed to do?"
"oh, oh I know. you can force them to walk back to their cells." Delirium said "it isn;t as fun as watching people fight, but I know you want them to stop fighting, so I am ok with it." she said jumping up and down. death appeared next to delirium. ""thank you, venn."she said smiling "we have never met, but I seem to follow you a lot, since your powers started activating. I was thanking you for breaking up the fight. my sister would have let it go on for hours, and I have more important souls to collect then those of some insane criminals." she said. "Delirium, you should stay with this boy more often, he is a good influence on you, you are acting less chaotic and more like your old self." she said smiling.
"my old self?" Delirium asked with a questioning face.
"Never mind."she said "thank you again."death said changing the subject, she had forgotten that she wasn't supposed to mention deliriums past life around her. she held her hand out to venn to shake. "don't worry, those stories of me taking you life with a single touch...well, they are not 100% accurate."
"No worries. Even if they were accurate I'm not a very easy person to kill. Trust me. I've tried..." I laugh as I shake Death's hand. I then look over at Delirium and shake my head. "She's quite the handfull. But I love having her around." He smiles, and then looks at the inmates.
"Alright! Everyone back into your cells! OR ELSE!" I yell at them, and they are quick to scatter. "And NEXT TIME! I won't be so easy on you!" Several wails and sobs followed, making me laugh.
"oh you don't have to tell me how hard it is to kill you. I will tell you a secret. I can see everyones death by thanking about them, and when I can;t quite get it, for people with vary special deaths, I have to touch them to see it. but with you, all there is is a big cloud, a storm in my mind blocking your lifes end. it has never happened before, that is one of the reasons my family is interested in you." death said, then she winked jumped backwards and disappeared but not before saying "TAKE CARE OF DELIRIUM!"
Delirium marched next to the inmates pretending to be a drill sargent. "ALRIGHT MAGETS, GET TO THEM CELLS, GO GO GO!"
I nod, and look in Delirium's direction. "Sometimes, I think she takes care of me more than I take care of her..." He warmly smiles at Delirium, watching her act. With a quiet chuckle, he says, "Alright Delirium. What now?"
"ummm. there was a reason I was here." she said thinking for a bit..."Oh I know, there is a boy here, and he is in trouble." Delirium said. "he is crazy like us, but he is also completely sane, like you." she said. "and my brother said he has two destinies, one where he is all alone, and dies, and one where we become friends with him, and he survives." She said..."but I forgot his name, all I know is he hates the jokers sister." she thought for a moment. "oh I know how to find him" she said, then she turned venn into a dog. "haha, now you can sniff him out with your puppy dog nose."
What was she talking about? Puppy dog nose? I take a step forward, suddenly feeling awkward. I glance down looking at my hands. No. Paws. Paws!?
"Delirium!" I scream, but instead a bark takes it place.
"ahh cute little puppy. come on, here smell this." she said holding a peice of cloth. "I found this, it should lead us to him." she said happily. "oh wait."she said then she snapped her fingers and a collar and leash appeared on venn. "Leash Laws!"
I was going to kill her. A low growl rumbles in my chest, and I could feel the hair on my back begin to rise. I release a heavy breath through my nose, and then sniff the cloth. I recoil, and start sneezing.
'Can she understand me?' I wonder, and start to gnaw on the leash. This collar was going to drive me insane.
Unwillingly, my tail starts to wag as my hind leg moves like crazy. I happily pant, and then break into a sprint with my nose up high and twitching. As the scent becomes stronger, I slow down and sniff the ground. I come to a sudden stop and look up. My eyes suddenly change, and I can see through the ceiling. The smell is coming from above...but where is the nearest way to get up. I then fly up and crash right through the ceiling. I start moving once more, following the trail of the scent. Whoever this kid was, they smelled funky.
There's a high pitched and joyful shriek, then someone in a cell says. "PUPPY DOG!"
"Delirium trails behind venn, almost being pulled. smiling and humming as she went. she heard the kid say "PUPPY DOG" and turned. "teehee, looks like you are famous down here venny." she said. "you are such a cute wittle puppy, it almost makes me want you as a pet instead of a brother."
(I am reading yatsuba as I role play, so delirium may seem a little ditzy. if you are unformiliar with yatsuba, it is about a little girl who doesn't know anything, and so she often mistakes things for other things, and does really stupid stuff. it is hilarious.)
I glare at Delirium, a look that says 'hell no'. Then, I continue on my way, glancing from side to side. I creep around the corner and slink over to the third cell. Throwing my head back, I release a loud howl, signaling that I found the boy.
(My friend read Yotsuba. She liked it. I haven't read it yet...thinking about it)
I gently shove Delirium aside and and then up to the cell. I take hold of one bar with my mouth, and my teeth sink in. Then, I pull back and tear the metal bar off. I then do the same with the rest. Someone in the cell next to this Mason kid's says, "Hey doggy! Why don't you come and help me out? I've got some treats for you."
I snarl under my breath, breaking off the last bar.
"my doggy only breaks good people out of prison." Delirium said sticking her tongue out.
"hey, shut it little kid." he said "now get your mutt to break me out."
"DO NOT CALL ME LITTLE!" she screamed turning the man 1 inch tall. "now who's little? huh? hey venn, you are a dog, you eat whatever, why don't you eat this guy?" she said. "on second thought leave him to the rats, I don't want you getting a tummy ach from eating something rotten."
I watch whats going on in my cell..."i guess its time for me to get out of here.. while the guards are busy.. they won't open up for me" i think... i slip my way out the straight jacket the thing could never hold me anyway......I cut my wrist.. so blood seeps under the door.. since it was a magnetized lock i act as if i fainted...one of the guards actually comes in and see's if im ok. Dumbass i grabs his leg and gun and leave the cell.. i look at the gun.."Such a crude weapon.. there are so many ways to kill and damage but they all rely on guns...now i should get out of here or stop this riot...i think as i kick a inmate in the face.. and punch the next 3 times and watch his body collapse
