Having spent the past few days combing over the research data I acquired it was apparent that the FBI were here to gather information regarding abnormal energy signatures most likely a result of my arrival here. Although I found myself surprised by the length of time it took them to suspect my involvement the Sullivan girls and I had spent the better part of two hours being interrogated by a team of agents before Rachel arrived and promptly escorted them out when she rushed home. Atop the stairs with her daughters I sat listening to the two women below. Rachel’s footsteps indicated she was pacing and I was willing to bet she was pulling her hair out, a nervous tick Emily shared. "Who the hell do they think they are coming here and harassing my family, they’re just kids they can't interrogate them without me here!!!" "I know Ray they just barged in flashing their badges saying they wanted to talk to the kids. I told them to go to hell and they put me in cuffs." "It's not your fault they are just assholes, I am just glad that I've been doing my work tracking down Damian’s family off the books I'm sure they would have had a field day with that." The chair screeched as she pulled it to sit. "You don't think they'd try and take him do you?" "If they thought we're hiding something, then yeah they'd more than likely try using the kids as leverage but they are out of their fucking minds if they think they are gonna touch my family!!!" Her fist slammed against the table the glass ringing from the blow. "You're damn right, now go get some rest and try to relax I'll start fixing dinner." "Thanks Nick," Her footsteps neared the hall and we quickly bolted to our rooms.
I knew now I'd need to be more careful with eyes on the house getting out would be difficult until the suspicion was off.
while blathering on about winter and the holidays. ---Later--- "Hey mom is it okay if me and Damian go for a walk?" Rachel eyed the girl speculatively. "You can go but you need to take one of your sisters. "Where are you going?" "Just around. it was all precautionary. Emily was clearly exasperated I think we were both hoping for her other sister despite their issues the eldest would have simply ignored us the entire way in silence which was preferable to the incessant chatter. As we were making our exit Rachel added. I assumed they would have more but the rest must be at either Rachel’s workplace or the girls school the light detail was a good sign they weren't that suspicious. Despite the annoyance her company did provide a distraction and I was able to easily scope out each agent's location. We traveled far enough to determine that the perimeter only encompassed the streets surrounding the house and one tail by car. ---On the walk--"It's so chilly out I wonder if it might snow this year. you know show him the park and maybe go to the store." Jazmine bubbled.The first thing I knew I had to do was locate where they were all positioned so I could create an escape route which in itself was a simple task." Before we could argue she raised a hand to silence us and walked away. groaning we marched back up the stairs to locate one of them." The girl was a good liar she didn't skip a beat and her mother assented. the largest boy seemed to notice as well and the group doubled back. A group of raucous boys passed and I noticed Emily shrink back against the bench. . As we returned home we stopped once more by the park so Jazmine could use the facilities and the two of us sat waiting on a park bench.
"Let him go. he stumbled and clambered quickly down the path. We sat in silence until Jazmine returned making our way back. "Hey anybody home? Man are you fucking stupid or what?" The boys surrounding him laughed mechanically. "Damian. "Go! Now! You saw nothing. my eyes narrowed and my patience was wearing thin." They ran immediately and I turned back to the boy." Waving a hand in front of her face trying to get her attention he elicited no response."Well look who it is guys. ---Sullivan Residence--Still frustrated from earlier I felt confined in the small bedroom and just wanted to go find some . Jeremy swung and I caught his fist squeezing tightly he shouted in pain and I felt his knuckles popping under the pressure just a bit more is all it would take to shatter his hand. his friends jeering as Emily sat stone faced looking ahead. you know that one girl the know-it-all." My brow furrowed and I glared down at the simpering boy and slowly released my hold on him. Jeremy gritted his teeth clearly upset by Emily's blatant disregard he grabbed her by the shoulders shaking her vigorously. trust me. "Why didn't you let me break him?" "Because he is not worth it. "Oh." Emily placed a firm hand on my shoulder staring into my eyes calmly. you don't know me huh? Maybe you remember when you broke my nose over a stupid picture!!!" The laughter stopped and she stood silent the boy grew visibly angry he then began prodding her forehead with his finger. "DON'T IGNORE ME!!! ARGH--" My hand clamped down on his wrist forcing him to release her as my grip tightened his knees buckled. the teacher’s pet." I frowned. "Ow! Lemme go!!!" His friends stepped away from me with horrified expressions as I turned towards them." He taunted. Emily was now eyeing me warily. "Hey you know who I am right? Come on you remember right? Say hi Jeremy.
flipping through the channels idly for several minutes not really paying attention until a news broadcast flashed onto the screen. I shut the TV off. sitting here doing nothing was maddening. a fresh wave of anger rolled over me at these peoples audacity they knew nothing about her or the late nights she had been spending working hunting down this mad man so exhausted by the time she returned home she would only eat dinner before heading to bed to start the cycle over again the next day all while getting no time with her family." The broadcast returned to the news anchors who berated Rachel and the police for their lack of results in this growing 'epidemic'. So I paced around the room shooting glances at the box that concealed my costume. The streets were lined with homeless. active nightlife. She didn't deserve this not any of it. prostitutes. and the deeper I traveled the more I was reminded of home. tall buildings. addicts. Surprisingly it felt familiar the city was much like Gotham.punk off the street to vent my frustrations on but that would be 'reckless' and I had already gotten myself into enough trouble following these impulses. bulbs flashing around her as they shouted questions at her from all directions blocking her way. I missed patrolling the streets of Gotham as Robin stopping criminals and saving lives. lots of traffic. I vaguely remember going back to the room and putting on the suit after that most of it was a blur. I knew it wouldn't be long until I found some fool to punish. and I was right. "The Los Angeles Police Department is using every available resource to hunt down this criminal if there are any developments the media will be informed until that time I have no further comments. I have only been here a little over a month but it felt like years. I had found a street bike somewhere along the way and sped through the city the crisp air making me more alert. only to be ridiculed. and drug dealers. I soon found myself rifling through the pantry and settling on the living room sofa with a bag of chips. . "-and earlier today we managed to catch up with SVU Detective Rachel Sullivan in regards to the string of brutal murders terrorizing the downtown area." My eyes narrowed as Rachel's face was plastered on the screen she was surrounded by a flock of reporters.
she was being herded. turned back but found her way blocked by three more among them were the two I had spotted earlier. "What do you want?" "We just wanna have some fun that’s all. The men laughed.Once I took to the rooftops I quickly found two petty thieves that I left tied up for the police and throttled a pimp. Something was off about him. they jeered loudly and the woman. Trapped with them closing in on her. "You asked for it brat." "That's where you are wrong. Sure enough as I followed her two more ambled down the road towards her in the narrow alleyway. his paced matched hers exactly the distance between them never increased or decreased and he never once looked up from his phone or ceased the movement of his fingers even though he wasn't actually typing up anything and never bothering to look at what direction he was traveling. sensing something was amiss. taking them down with one blow would have been simple enough but I wanted to drag this out a bit longer but . pulling a knife. "What are you scared old man?" He scowled. she asked shrilly. "Stay back or I'll scream!" Her weak threat was useless the only thing it did was verify she had no means of defending herself and they simply smiled in response. the knife flew across the pavement." "-tt-" I smirked. Young in his early twenties he was walking and texting nonchalantly a short distance behind a young woman at first glance nothing seemed wrong but my instincts told me otherwise. There was a brief pause before the others recovered from their shock and ran at me. "Go ahead baby ain't nobody out here gonna help you. still I wasn't satisfied and continued my search until I noticed a man." I jumped down from the building landing in front of the woman. This continued for a few blocks before he departed and a couple of menacing looking men made the woman change her course to cut through an alley which made me realize what was happening." They moved closer until her back was against the wall. "Are you serious kid this ain't a movie go home before you get hurt or worse." He lunged but with a swift roundhouse kick to the head he dropped unconscious to the floor.
"You brat you shot me!!!" He stumbled towards her and she cocked the gun once more." Before I could make a move to stand his foot came down on my head grinding it into the pavement and the man twisted the blade I winced as he began pulling the dagger upwards. "LET HIM GO!!!" A familiar voiced boomed and the blades movement ceased opening my eyes and looking in the direction of the noise I found myself in a stunned disbelief as I saw Emily standing unwavering with a pistol pointed at the man. He chuckled. she was terrified as she stood glued to the brick wall behind her desperately trying to sink into it. who silenced immediately. then kicked me soundly in the ribs the blade stung as it dug deeper in to my back. "And what if I don't?" Her eyes narrowed as she cocked the gun in response. "SHUT UP!!!" He roared at the woman. The woman’s shrieks pierced the air and I turned to see the man with the phone I had spotted earlier glowering down at me. As they all lay haphazardly on the ground moaning in pain." . I won’t tell you again.even then it didn't last long. "You've got to be kidding me first super boy here now little girl copper where the hell are your parents?!" "I said let him go. "You're safe. "One more step and the next one goes between the eyes. "Do you even know how to use that thing little girl?" He shook his head dismissively pressing his foot down on my head again and before I could react a shot was fired and he cried out in pain clutching his arm. "You're dead kid. Groaning internally I stilled knowing if I made one wrong move the ignorant fool could cut an artery but if I didn't move I would be dead anyways.ARGH!!!" I felt the pressure as the blade dug into me and I was knocked to the ground." Her mouth set in a hard line as she kept her gaze locked on the man. I turned to the woman. now get.
"Y-You really need medical attention. "Remove the cover and place it over the wound and do . It hasn't punctured anything so I just need to seal up the wound. My clothes were being soaked in blood." "Here" I handed her a patch from my belt. "Pull slowly and try and keep your hands steady." Both gawked at me before Emily shook her head in disbelief. "We need to get you to a hospital!!" "NO!!!" "What do mean 'no'? You're hurt-for Christ sake you have a knife in your back?!" "S-she's right. I tensed as the open air hit my wound and the burning pain spread. "What?!" "I won't move just do it!!" I snarled losing my patience." The woman kneeled down shakily pressing down on opposite sides of my wound then slowly I could feel the pressure from the blade easing as she pulled it out. What I need is for you. quickly Emily lifted my shirt using her jacket to place pressure on the wound. "You are one stubborn ass Robin. "Oh God!" Emily's footsteps neared and she knelt down beside me. "I just wanna be careful quit your bitching." Looking at Emily." "No. "Now what? I don't exactly have a sewing kit." "Could you hold him down for me?" Emily asked the woman.The man stopped his breathing shallow as he weighed his options. "Now back away from the boy and get the hell outta here!" With one last scathing look at the 3 of us the man clambered down the alleyway and everything was still until he was out of sight." Both are heads snapped around to the woman against the wall." I returned a sarcastic smile before lying flat and relaxing. “To pull the knife out.
almost instantly I felt the intense heat as it seared my wound shut. "I learned when I was eight. she fainted. Then with the woman in tow I boosted a car and we returned her to the address listed on her ID and it took the two of us to lug her up to her apartment where Emily briefly wrote her a note but I didn't care to ask why and we departed. "That reminds me I have some questions I'd like to ask you. "And the gun?" "It's my mom's she has a couple hidden around the house in case of emergency. I don't know why but I couldn't stifle my laughter soon we were both howling until we were out of breath and we sat for a moment before she helped me to my feet. Gritting my teeth sweat ran down my face in beads as I tried to tune out the awful sizzling by focusing on the hand gently rubbing circles on my back." She nodded removing the cloth from the wound and quickly placing the patch.not touch the front of it. "What was that?" "Uh. As the pain eased there was an audible thud."I paused looking at her minutely." "Are you serious my mom won't even let me ride my bike without a helmet!!!" She shook her head incredulous and leaned back. "When did you learn to drive?" She gazed at me curiously." "I meant where did you learn to handle a gun?" . "Well go on." Emily replied blankly." "How did you find me?" "You didn't turn of the GPS on your phone." I frowned at my carelessness I hadn't even realized I had brought the thing along.
By the way you owe me some major cash for the cab I had to take. "Next time just call the police I really don't need you out here getting yourself killed." "That night you ran off to the city is that what you were doing?" "Yeah I was going to the old rec center I go there sometimes when I get mad but I know it isn't safe.. so your argument is invalid." I snapped back and she gaped at me before turning away pouting. your GPS said you were in felony flats and well I'd rather be safe than sorry." "Really? That's not what it looked like from where I was standing." "So you've never fired a gun before tonight?" "Nope…. "I guess it's just what I would have done." She laughed sheepishly and I shook my head. not anymore and even though I know that I still just. "How did you know I was in trouble?" "I didn't but I knew you were upset about earlier so I figured you'd need some time away from everything to vent and you said you used to be a 'crime fighter'.and I'm nearsighted so I couldn't even really see what I was aiming the only thing I saw clearly was your cape I just got lucky I actually hit the guy. "Well you can barely see." She crossed her arms giving me a pointed look." "Me?! You were the one with the knife in your back and I'm the one that gets a lecture!" "I had everything under control. We were silent for a moment before I spoke.." "Lose control."Again my mom she really only taught me and my sisters 'gun safety' tips like how to not shoot ourselves in the foot but I've been with her to the shooting range before so I kinda observed she's never actually let me touch one before. nothing here is. Going somewhere or in your case doing something familiar helps calm me down." ." She had a small smile." "You know me pretty well.
"Trust me."Yeah. we crept to the bathroom on the first floor and once inside we both sighed in relief and took a seat. if you had anything worth looking at.Pervert? Maybe. I feel better than I have in awhile. I have an idea. "Are you sure you don't need a hospital?" I smirked. “You’re one to talk 'little man'. Emily's hands had burns from when she was patching me up and her shirt and pants were stained with blood and filth from the alley. I could feel the bruises forming beneath my clothes and hoped there wasn't noticeable bruising on my face. We glanced at each other nervously praying silently no one was awake yet. agreed?" "Agreed." I looked at her quizzically. "I am gonna jump in first. "I'm sure." She giggled shaking her head." Her face flushed she seethed through gritted teeth." "You were stabbed and beaten is that your idea of fun?" She asked skeptically. you are going to wait pervert." I glared." She moved over to the shower and kicked off her shoes and I felt my face heating as I struggled to process what she had just said. We were both now covered in a dry layer of sweat and as I looked down to examine myself I realized that nearly my entire costume was bloodstained. "Now what?" "We get cleaned up. "For the record before you arrived I was doing the beating." Entering the house we heard nothing which was a good sign everyone was still sleeping." She exhaled. She turned noticing my expression and her eyes narrowed. "Okay I'll let you have that one but you are still crazy so next either of us goes off the deep end how about we find a punching bag or something less detrimental to our health." I parked the car in a grocery parking lot and we began the walk back once we reached the back porch the sun was beginning to rise and as the darkness faded away we both noticed how truly awful we looked. "-tt." . "We just need to make it to the bathroom.
The fresh scent of soap replaced the pungent odor of blood and sweat then the water ceased and it was quiet for several minutes. "Emily." "What? Why?" "Because I have to get out so you can get in and grab us a change of clothes. She groaned in frustration and scowled bitterly at me. so I simply turned to the opposing wall and waited." I felt incredibly stupid at the moment my brain was working much slower than usual and I was exhausted. "I want you to apologize for what you said before." She snorted and I tossed the towel over the curtain and waited as she disappeared again."What are you doing?!" "Apologize. she was angry now. "Okay now turn around. I sat scowling at the wall and leaned back against the toilet as the room filled with steam." "What?" Her eyes peeked out from behind the curtain. here. yeah I just need a towel. are you alright?" "Uh. "Right." I pulled one out of the cabinet and held it within reach but as her hand grabbed for it I quickly pulled it away. ." "Oh. "NO! I am not going to-" I shook the towel pointedly." I remembered myself before I asked her why she couldn't get one herself." I grinned wickedly.My jaw dropped and I stood taken aback as she stepped into the tub pulling the curtain closed tossing her clothes out before running the water. "Fine I'm sorry said you were small now can I have the damned towel?" "Here but next time I am going to make you say please.
" She nodded still drowsy waiting for her coffee. did she know about last night my brow furrowed in thought wondering what I should say next." Relaxing as I realized she meant the agents outside and I nodded. About an hour later I had finished the clothes and there wasn't a stain in sight I made a note to commend the girl on her stain removing skills and proceeded upstairs returning my costume to its proper place." I nodded and she returned to the kitchen." When the door didn't close I looked up to see the girl standing alongside the bed with an odd expression of amusement as she eyed the basket. When I heard the door open and close I realized my clothes had arrived so I quickly finished washing. breakfast is ready. "I was! When I couldn't get back to sleep I thought I could do some laundry. "But try not to let it get to you they'll be gone soon enough. My eyes widened in horror as a wicked grin spread over the girls face. I would have taken blood stains and knife wounds over this. "I know the feeling and having people stalking you can make sleep difficult. Immediately I thought I had missed a stained article and cursed myself for my negligence as she pulled a small colorful piece of fabric from the pile. "Hey." I prickled. . she paused for a moment listening then walked down the hall and I followed the noise as well. just don’t forget to dry them or they'll get moldy. "Well you're up early. exhaling I sat atop the washer to wait and be sure no one else stumbled across the clothes by accident. "Who is washing this early?" She reached for the lid and my eyes widened as I realized that mine and Emily's bloodstained clothes were contained with." "I couldn't sleep." "Alright I'll be down in a minute. I thought a shower might help. I sat at the foot of my bed rubbing my face completely exhausted and the door opened it was Kristen." "Oh well that’s fine. Exiting the bathroom I was headed for the stairs but was spotted by Rachel. it was a pair of Emily's underwear.She swiftly exited and when the door clicked closed I hurriedly undressed and got in the shower letting the hot water cascade over me and relax my sore muscles. "Now why do you have a pair of my baby sister’s panties?" When I didn't respond she sat close beside me waving them in front of my face making me cringe.
"You aren't doing stuff with my baby sister. Hag." "Breakfast. "Suuure just play safe kiddies. am I making you nervous Dami? Come here!" "NO!" Cornered on the bed back against the wall the girl neared slowly with the offending article." "Where are you going." Emily rolled her eyes as her sister exited." Kristen got off the bed shrugged nonchalant and tossed them into my lap." The day seemed to drag on forever while I spent my time avoiding all the women in the house which was a difficult task. "Kris what are you doing?" We both turned to see Emily frowning at her sister from the doorway. "Aw." "My what?" Emily asked genuinely confused to which Kristen held up the underwear. "Oh don't worry I'm not gonna steal you man." Kristen laughed sarcastically. "You alright? She can be really annoying. "I'm fine." Tossing the piece of cloth back at her I quickly walked past her. "Really then why do you have these?" She moved them closer and I crawled backwards until I hit the wall to escape. "I threw in an outfit of mine with his laundry you twat! You're the easy one not me. by the time dinner came along I was completely exhausted as the lack of sleep was catching up with me. Emily shook her head exasperated. she was blocking my escape route and the only option was to go through her which was looking better and better by the second. are you Damian?" "NO!" My face was hot and I knew I was visibly blushing but what she was asking was absolutely ludicrous. Afterwards I headed straight to bed throwing myself onto the bed not bothering to climb under the covers I laid there and was almost unconscious when my hand brushed against something beneath . "He's too young for you.
"Kristen Sullivan this means war." Disclaimer: I do not own Damian Wayne he is the property of DC. . my eyes narrowed knowing exactly who the culprit was. I do however own the OC's used in this story. It was a pair of girls’ underwear I pulled back the cover and there were several more.my pillow pulling it out I couldn't make out what the fabric was in the dark so I turned on the bedside lamp and immediately dropped it.
