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
