Midnight rising Chapter 5 - war footingJennifer drove the car to where David and Matthew where located, She saw Plucky on the ground knocked out cold. She was rather perplexed how Matthew found David, she was also upset that Plucky was very much knocked out thanks to Matthew and the sedative and she couldn't interrogate him on the spot as she usually does and won't be awake for another sixteen hours or so.
She also knew that Cassandra wouldn't be the slightest bit impressed with how the whole interception went down and how Matthew found out about the secret project Tristan and Micah where working on for her.
"How in the hell did you find us Matthew, it's not like you knew about this operation." Jennifer said indigently as she gave him a look which indicated she was rather displeased
"I didn't know you where in the middle of an interception operation Jennifer, I was down here for a totally different reason altogether"
"I came to get this." Matthew says as he takes a piece of paper out of his jacket pocket and gi
Midnight Rising Chapter 4 sinister intentIt was eleven pm before Cassandra and Jane got home.
There was one million thoughts going through their minds as they each thought about what transpired at the bar; The reunion of daughter and father, husband and wife.
"I still don't understand why Matthew wants back in" Cassandra says with a sigh
" I don't know either mum, but its nice to see dad again. I just wish you didn't feel the need to want to kill him at every opportunity " Jane says to her mother, with the knowledge her words will go unheeded.
She presses the button on the intercom, there was a buzzing sound and a voice comes out though the speaker
"Hello" Said the voice on the intercom
"Hey It's me Jane, can you let us in?" Jane said into the speaker.
The Gate unlocked and both Jane and Cassandra walked up the bath towards the front door where Micah stood waiting.
Micah might of been the older brother of both David and Tristan, but to Cassandra and Jane he was someone who they could count on to provide wise consul or s
midnight rising Chapter 3 blast from the pastIt was a quiet day at the headquarters and Janie and Spencer where in front of their braille computers sorting out paperwork and putting the latest security camera photos from the night Cassandra got shot through the system.
They have been there for hours, trying to work though all the paperwork from the night of the ambush, so much information they both thought their heads where going to explode.
The room was quiet, Eric who was with them stepped out to get Spencer and Janie some supplies. The room was quite large. There was Edwardian features in the room the ornate wood carvings in the cornices and all the amazing photographs that Cassandra had collected over the years .
The house is double story and the top story is home to Cassandra and Jane while the first floor belongs to the illicit information bureau, which is were Spencer spends most of his time with his wife Janie making sure all the technology which is at the their collective disposal is working well and running smoothly the
Midnight Rising Chapter 2 reunions and revelationsA car pulled up into the quiet parking lot of the Johnson County medical examiners office. There were street lights on as a dark SUV pulled up into a parking space and the engine of the SUV stopped, there was a cold chill in the air and a silence that was deafening and brutal.
It was around 12am by the time David and Jennifer got to the office, which was about 45mins away from their apartment which was located in upper old town. It had been a few hours since David and
Jennifer got the news that Cassandra had come back from the dead, little was said on the way there as either one of them could quite understand how it happened but both was glad for the news no matter how fantastical it was.
While they were driving up to the office Jennifer made a few phone calls to other members of the Illicit Information Bureau telling them the news that Cassandra was alive and to be available in the morning for a debrief and in the mean time find out who ambushed both Cassandra and David last night
Midnight Rising Chapter 1 how did she do that?It was a long day and Medical examiner John Jones was busy as always.
He has had plenty of autopsies to do and this was the latest in a long line of dead bodies he has had to deal with. He has been with the Johnson County medical examiners office for over a decade and he has seen his fair share of bodies, from drug addicts to car accidents. He was a very world wise yet he knew his job was important to law enforcement to find out the truth about how people died
"So John who do we have here? Asked Warwick his assistant as he was preparing all the instruments they will need for the latest autopsy. Warwick said this quietly so as not to disturb John's train of thought
" Her name is Cassandra Henderson, She taken to hospital with a bullet wound to the chest, head and stomach. The trauma team had tried to revived her for over two hours but no dice I am afraid, shame really as I knew her well she worked with the local government in getting us extra funding for the new forensic labs we are now
Midnight rising Why Oh Why Part TwoIt was midnight and I was with the boys and Jane doing surveillance in the narrows.
We where split into two teams, the narrows was an island smack bang in the middle of Gotham City. While midtown and downtown gotham was pristine and amazingly modern the narrows was anything but modern.
It reminded me of the red light district of old town, with all its shanty towns, decaying and dilapidated buildings and in the middle of it all was Arkham Asylum the home of Gotham City's most dangerous and insane criminals which made me feel a tad uneasy as I have had some experience of being in there for another mission which went very badly for me, I hoped this time around I wouldn't get injured or cattle prodded.
I was on foot with David, Jane and Michael while Tristan and Micah were in the SUV. We all knew the Batman was on patrol at this time of the night, so we knew that if any trouble happened we had additional back up.
We each had a comms device that we had brought with us, it was tuned into the
Midnight Rising - Why oh Why Part OneIt was eleven PM and I had just came back from patrol with Jane when I got the call…..
"Cassandra, Its Eleanor Black. How are you?"
"I am fine Eleanor, What's up?'
"Bruce needs a favor…."
I shivered, knowing when Bruce asks for a favor it would involve either a visit from the Batman or I had to go to Gotham for an eradication operation as he knew I was immortal.
While I didn't mind using my supernatural abilities, Eleanor had no clue as to what I was let alone what the Illicit information Bureau dealt with on a regular basis. I don't think Bruce ever told her as he knew discretion was important in joint ventures such as ours.
Thinking back when I first went to Gotham about 3 and half years ago he seemed like a person I could trust with being discreet about what the resistance did and like wise he trust me with being discreet about what he did as batman. He was a bit standoffish at first but when he realized I was someone to be trusted he soon warmed to me and let me in on his d
