I look up at the kid, and bark. Then I look at Delirium. It seems like he can't see her at the moment. With a snort, I nudge him with my nose and then look in the direction of where I had come from. We had to get out of here.
"You want me to leave here... fine i was going to anyway" i say cracking my knuckles... as i leave...i tap a guard on the shoulder.."it was nice but me and this dog are leaving now" i says
The guard laughs..."hahaha you kid.. please your a book worm you and what army" he says as 8 other guards surround me and the dog.
I sigh as instantly 4 of them go down holding their throats in pain... the one in front of me back up pulling out his baton but i place my foot on the handle to keep him from doing that and elbow the one behind me in the face and kick off the baton with a spinning heel kick hitting the last two and they drop instantly.
(Mike) "Impossible...how.. did you drop them so fast" he says holding a taser
"Easy" i say as in an instant i sidestep the taser but push into his body i keep my hand to my chest fingers outstretch and in a swift motion i jab at his trachea and i feel it close up around my fingers as his eyes widen as the oxygen leaves him and he gasps to allow more air into his lungs and he drops.
"Told you it was easy" i say as i grab the keys and leave the asylum... running and run up the large gate and flip over and im on the outside again... the dog easily walked through the bars
I sniff the air, and look around. I catch Batman's scent, and my tail wags back and forth in rapid motions. My eyes suddenly change and I bite the boy's hand. Suddenly, we are teleported to Batman. He is looking out at Gotham from the top of a building. I plop down at his side, and look up at him. He looks into my eyes for a moment, and then laughs under his breath as he spots Delirium. Instantly, he understood. A growl erupts in my chest as my ears press against my skull.
"Sorry Venn, but you are pretty cute. I have been needing a dog to help in fighting crime. I think you'll do the trick." Bruce teases as he pats my head. My tail wags once more, even though I wanted to bite his arm off for talking to me in such a way. I had already tried reverting myself into a human again. Or whatever the hell I actually am. But nothing worked. The nanite most likely...
"This dog is that Sullivenn person you were talking about...oh well guess we've seen weirder things..." i say
"What the hell am i doing here anyway bat... i told you im not gonna help take her down or is there some other business you want with me" i ask rubbing my hand staring at the vigilante gotham all feared
"It was actually Delirium who decided to bring you. You'll have to talk to her about it." Batman responds, now scratching behind my ear. He must have forgotten that it's me he's treating like a dog. I snort at him, and he pulls his hand away with a snickered apology. I turn away from Batman and look at the newbie. My eyes suddenly change as I receive information on him. With a single blink, my eyes return to normal and I bark at Batman.
"Good boy." He smiles, and I respond with a growl. "I need to get moving. I have a meeting in a couple of minutes. It was postponed, of course to a late time." His eyes rest on me. "Venn, could you deal with crime tonight?"
My tail wags as I bark and nod, my tongue rolling out of my mouth as I smile.
"You're never going to live this down." Batman smirks before gliding off the building and vanishing in the darkness.
Delirium allows herself to be seen by mason. "Bye DADDY!"she screams happily waving good bye to him with a handkerchief like she was in a black and white film. she then turned to mason and smiled. "well well, so you are the notorious powerhouse, the master of punishment, the commandant of pain, and the king of cruelty." she said laughing "peak physical conditioning, heightened awareness of the world around you, and the always important automatic combat knowledge." she skipped up to him. "that is how you beat up those guards, guards trained to protect gothem from the escape of the most criminally insane people in, quite possibly, the world. guards who, on any other day, keep people like the joker or the riddler, both mass murdering geniuses, from escaping. then again, they have failed before, and they will fail again. nothing beats crazy for to long, no one has ever beaten crazy." she said, then she stopped smiling for a minute and thought. "well, except my daddy, batman." she appeared behind him. "so...you ready to do what you need too?" she said. "because jokers sister is coming, and i am not supossed to tell you this, but it is going to be tonight. and with batman away, there is no one to stop her from killing millions." she said then she leaned agianst his shoulder, floating above the ground so she could reach his height. "no one except you, me, and venny the wonder dog!"
"First of all can you turn this dog back into a person if im forced to work with someone i'd rather it be someone who wouldn't piss on my leg, and how do you catch the most insane criminals unless you get to know them ... i did what Bruce wouldn't ..go deeper in the criminal mind" i say...
"To be honest i didn't want to be able to see you.. i kept my sanity for that reason alone i don't wanna become another self righteous insane person who thinks im helping the world" i say...But its her, if this spirit says she will kill millions,, then she will.
Tell me if this sounds familiar boy with his family on a night of the town with his family so happy and full of life until tragedy strikes and the boys parents are gunned down in cold blood.
Well she wanted every person to get to know the great killing her brother did and had 30 high class families assassinated on the same day...
"oh trust me, I know the story, and I know all about joker and his sister." delirium said. she snapped her fingers and venn became a human again. "but trust me, just because you care about other peoples life's, does not make you some self righteous weirdo, because you are not doing it for yourself. it would be self righteous to think you are better then anyone who saves people because you think they are self righteous." she said. "now let me lay down a beat for you, daddy-o, imagine a world where your destiny is to go insane, a place where you're dreams are not a crazy as reality, death has no hold, because no one fears it, destruction runs rampent without cause or reason, Despair is nothing because no one is sane enough to be sad. and lust, lust is in it's wildest form, crazed and psychotic. this is a world where I rule, I am the strongest, no, the only endless. NOTHING BUT INSANITY AND CHAOS!" she said a tear running down her eye, for a little bit, she is suddenly wearing normal cloths, normal cloths with exciting and happy colors, her hair is straight and blond, and her whole body posture is neat and perfect, but more exintric and happy. for that moment she is no longer delirium, she is Delight. "I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE DELIRIUM IS IN CHARGE!" she screams crying, then she is on the ground, unconscious from the strain it took for her to break her insanity, still crying.
she changes back to normal and jumps up, then she falls on her butt and grabs her head. "whoa, what happened?" he said. "I was talking to you about something...FISH TACOS!" she screamed as a giant fish taco with legs ran by..."no that wasn't it, it was awesome though." she thought..."I remember, jokers sister." she said. "you gotta help us defeat jokers sister, she is crazy, like crazier then me crazy, and that is difficult to do, because I am literally crazy, like the personification of crazy, that kind of crazy." she said.
I was so happy to finally be myself again. I stretch out and clap my hands together, a wide grin on my face. Then, I fix my hat and look at them. "Well now that you two can actually understand me...I want to ask why exactly we need someone helping us take down Joker's sister? I think we could handle it."
I look at Mason once more. He is a year older than me, and slightly taller. But I looked at him like I would with Batman or Bruce - as an equal.
I look at her..then sulliven."she took everything from me..i was always a smart kid though i know that the people she killed weren't my real parents i was adopted but i had already noticed key genetic differences between me and my parents ... eye color, hair, other little things" i say for some reason felt like letting it be known...."I just wanted to know why so i investigated, and found this sociopath and i fought her out of anger but was clearly young and outmatched... it seemed to fill her with delight that out of all the people she murdered that i actually tried to find answers, so she let me live leaving bread crumbs .. torturing me, it took me a while but i finally realized that she wanted a batman of her own.. well she was right, i was able to catch short glimpses of batman in action, i have a photographic memory build, height, i memorize .. i can even mimic some reflexes and actions.. but i needed to learn from him" i say..."Didn't take long to find out who he really was, he is careful easy is not the word but for someone like me the smallest detail can give it away, like catwoman cutting batman on the chin then seeing bruce wayne with the same scar .. so then i back tracked through his history saw we had something in common then i confronted him and he took me in .. same as he did alex and i learned, but i went a step further and decided that trying to understand the crazies is pointless unless your immersed in them.. and her brother seemed like the best way to learn about her" i say sitting down.
(Gabriella - jokers sister)
"im bored what shall i do..." i wonder...as i bath in a pool ... while the couple i just murdered bleed to death...and my henchmen are stealing their belongings not for me but for them....I allow them to have the spoils.
"Is my little batboy .. still in arkham... this is no fun....maybe i need a bigger gesture to get his attention.. how come my brother gets to have all the fun, he gets his own archnemesis to stop him all the time... god he always stole my idea's who do you think put that joker idea in his mind.. it wasn't the chemical vats.. i remember when he was nine and i scared the living daylights out of him. http://zeitgeist.li/asset/200902/zg.fqjv.png
I get out of the pool completely naked.. and one of my goons looks at my body ... so i walk and grab my pistol and shoot him in the neck he falls and i catch him his blood flowing out..."Awww you hurt yourself, mama told you not to look at girls thats a bad little boy.. well goodnight honey" i say as i snap his neck and smile.. it was fun having him reach up he couldn't talk but you knew he was begging for his life. I think i need to do something big.. hundreds no... thousands... no...i cant think straight but the night is young
"my brother said in order to initiate the destiny in which we win agianst her with the least amount of casualties is to be together when we fight her." Delirium said. "HEY, I'm Hungry. I haven't eaten since...the day me and you met, Venn." she said. "anyone got candy? or cake? OR ANYTHING!"
"Well I'm not sure when this girl is going to strike, but I'd say soon. That's the thing about us crazies. We're unpredictable." I give a short smile before bursting into a fit of manic laughter. I look over at Delirium in a pleading way as my eyes begin to change, and the world around us does the same. It goes from a dark night to one full of rainbows and butterflies. Buildings are suddenly replaced with massive busses sticking out of the ground. Suddenly, I twitch as a jolt runs through my mind. I close my eyes and grab my head as the world returns to normal. Whatever the hell normal is...I don't think I'll ever know...
I look at my hand and see that there is a slice of cake in it. I look at it in question, and hand it over to Delirium.
"OH YUMMY!" she screams eating it in one bite, bits of cake all over her face. "OK, NOW LETS FIND THIS CRAZY CHICK AND STICK A FORM IN HER!" dalirium said. "metephorically of curse...also possibly literally, I have never killed anyone with a fork before." she said excited at the prospect of trying new things. "teehee"
"Hey what can I say? Crazy is practically my middle name!" I reply, smiling from ear to ear. "Or maybe it was supposed to be my first...or last...my parents didn't love me enough to tell me. They just decided to throw me into an asylum." I then begin to fake sob. I suddenly stop and look down at my feet. The memories were coming quicker than I would have liked...I was starting to remember their reasoning for placing me in Arkham.
'Come on Sully~ I wanna have some fun.' the voice pleads, each word hissed out and burning against my skull.
"Shut up Psy..." I grumble to myself.
"Oh god... i regret getting involved in this.. " i say being around two crazy people was not my typical idea of a good night.. anyway besides her the night was full of crime... i suit up my outfit is more revealing then bruce's but i keep the shroud around my mouth to hide part of my face as i also have a dark hood on.
There is a drug shipment over by the docks.. well why wait for her to strike and not take down some criminals.. this is gotham if you think she is the only criminal to worry about your sadly mistaken.
I tail the car that was loaded with the drugs to a warehouse...i go up to the roof and observe the activity first and case the area seeing where would be most advantageous to strike
I stand beside Mason for a moment, and then jump down. I land right on the hood of the car, completely silent. I give Mason a big grin and wave at him as I just walk into the warehouse, suddenly vanishing.
I look behind my shoulder, and frown. Woah. Where'd my back up go? With a sigh, my shoulders slouch and I hold my hands up in surrender.
"Hey. I'm NOT a kid. I will actually be 16 in less than two weeks!" I whine, frowning at the men. My eyes suddenly change and I appear behind one man. I kick the back of his knee, forcing him down. I then elbow the two closest to him in the face, instantly knocking them out. I flip to avoid several bullets, and then vanish in mid-air. I then reappear, holding all of the bullets that had been shot at me in my hand. I toss them into the air, and the bullets all go flying, drilling right through several of the men.
"Sorry. I'm just too generous for my own good~" I chime and then burst into insane laughter. The naninte zaps my brain, and I angrily grumble as the headache rises. But I can feel myself calm down and my eyes return to normal.
Delirium appears next to the men who where still loading things. "HI!" she yelled loudly causing them to all jump, and some of them dropped their boxes. "wha...WHAT THE HELL KID, GET OUTTA HERE!" one man screamed. then another grabbed delirium and lifted her into the air. he aimed his gun at her head and laughed. "this is better then expected, now we have a hostage." the guy said "ok, keep loading."he says a s the men continue their dirty job. "ohh, a hostage, who is it?" Delirium asked. "it's you." the man said. "really? I don't feel hostaged." she said. "maybe you're doing it wrong." she said skeptically. "WHAT! Shut it kid or I will blow your brains out here and now." he says. "ohh but if you do that, you won't have a hostage."delirium said. "I thought you said you didn't feel hostaged." the man said angrily. "I don't, but you think I am a hostage, so by killing me, you are destroying your own delusion that I am a hostage."she said. "THAT'S IT!" he said, he pulled the trigger and nothing happened. "huh?" he looked at the gun then reloaded it with one hand. "Alright, now you're done for." he said, he pulled the trigger again but nothing happened. "you have to load it." Delirium laughed. "I ALREADY DID!" he screamed. he pulled the trigger several more times but still nothing happened. "must be jameed or something." he said looking into the barrel of the gun, and as he did all the bullets he had tried to shoot at delirium came buzzing out at once, straight through his eye. "TEEHEEHEE I like that joke better with bullets then with water." she laughed as the men stoped loading agian and looked at her. "wha-what are you?" they all asked, then suddenly they where all grabbed by giant teddy bears, each with an eye patch and a knife held to the guys necks. "I'm a hostaged!"
I step up beside Delirium and pat her head. "Be gentle with them. They're more fragile than they seem...or attempt to seem." I then look at the guys and sigh, "Sorry but your guys at the front are sort of...dead."
"alright."Delirium said laughing. "CAMANDER TEDDERS!" she said, and one of the teddybears saluted her. "TAKE THEM ALL TO LOCK UP!" she said, then a giant hamster cage appeared, the teddy bears locked them inside of the cage. "there ya go, enjoy your new homes little guys." she said walking away from the giant cage. "ok, now what?"
I give the injured men a steroid that heals them these crazies don't know the meaning of stealth ...I follow what I call the code of Wayne I bruise maim break injure but don't kill.
Powerhouses ....now I see why Bruce stays human and doesn't augment himself
Some more men come with armor and weapons weird ones...I see the energy crackling..."those are either new genesis or from apokolips" I say ..one of them throws a punch and a red shockwave comes at all of us I flip over it but it hits sulliven sending him through 4 walls.
"yea their apokolips weapons" I say as I throw projectiles disarming the ones with guns
