PostSubject: Intimate Demise   Tue May 15, 2012 12:47 am

He didn't know how long it took him to reach the manor, his steps slowed from his distracted, angry and pain filled mind and his heavy clothes that were wet from the rain. But eventually he did make it. He walked inside and was instantly hit with nothing but memories. Memories of Dick.

Walking through the entryway, it was of when he first brought the child home. Walking through the halls, it was all throughout Dick's childhood to adult hood. And it pained his heat so much. The distraught man did not even notice the trail of water he left behind as he walked about.

And once again, he found himself at the door of the Study. Where pictures of Dick resided.

Before he knew it, Bruce entered the room. He didn't look around this time. Just made his way to the desk. It was where his eyes only focus on. Once he made it to the desk. He grabbed hold of the picture. Dick. he thought as he touched the picture gently, his eyes welling up with tears.

And it was then that he noticed something. Well someone. There in the chair fast asleep, was Selina. His heart clenched as he saw her, remembering how he left her to find his boys. He hadn't been able to come back to her. And she- she had waited all this time.

"Tell Selina you love her,"

Dick's words echoed into his head and he felt his throat tighten. Without a word, he set the picture down and walked around the desk. Silently, he brought his hand to her shoulder and gently shook it, forgetting how soaked he was. "Selina..." his gruff and broken voice said quietly.

Selina had sighe when he left, she ha an inkling that he wouldn't be back tonight. It didn't bother her, she wet through all the books before finding a journal. Thomas Wayne's journal. SW became nosy and read through it.

Who had known Clark's father knew Bruce's? That was news to her. She kept reading the journal, before she knew it she had curled into a small ball in the chair sleeping in the lavish chair.

"Selina..."

The cat woman sighe through her nose, opening an eye.

"It's not polite to sneak up on a lady." She said, teasing Bruce as he spoke. She blinked, why was he wet?

"Bruce...?" She asked, sitting up. The man looked like shit.

When the beautiful woman before him awoken, he tried to smile at her words. But he couldn't. He just couldn't. Instead he just grimaced. What was he to do?

"Bruce...?"

The Dark Knight looked down at her, his face twisted in sorrow as his shoulders, that normally seemed so still and strong, began to shake. He wanted to speak, to say something, but his mouth wouldn't move. His throat felt too tight. And he- he just couldn't find the means to say a word.

"Tell Selina you love her,"

Those words wouldn't leave his head. The instructions and demands Dick and given him as a final request. Things he promised the boy he would do. The boy who was gone now. Dead. "Dick is dead." It wasn't until he felt the pain in his soar throat that he spoke at all. And then it all came crashing down.

He fell to his knees in front of the chair, his hands reached out to grab her and bring himself closer. His water soaked body clung to the woman before him as he shook. Silent tears running down his face. He didn't make a sound, but that didn't mean his sorrow wasn't screaming out.

"Dick is dead."

Selina's heart stopped for a moment. Dick was dead? How was that possible?

The Arena.

There was a match? She hadn't known. She should have been there, for him and for Bruce. She felt his hands reach for her, she didn't care if he was sopping wet, she loved him. She just wanted to make him happy, but with the news... she didn't think it would be possible, not for a while.

The cat woman wrapped her arms around the Caped Crusader, letting the man hold her like a rage doll. She drummed her fingers on the base of his neck, trying to sooth the beast of a man. He was always so fragile when it came to Dick, always. He had been a rough man before the youngster came into his life, but now he let people in. At least more than what he was used to being capable of.

"Shh, Bruce, shh... it's going to be okay." Selina cooed out, trying to calm him. Bruce needed to calm down, it scared her that he was like this. But she'd be there, to comfort him through this. She'd always be there for him. Whether he liked it or not.

He felt the arms wrap around him, bringing what little comfort he could find in such a time as this. His heart felt torn and raw, broken and bleeding at the death of his eldest child. He couldn't even think as he held onto the woman in his arms. All his thoughts were of Dick and nothing else. Once again he lost a son, and the pain was just as bad if not worse as then. And he knew, that the ghosts would always haunt him. Always be there to remind him of what he lost, of his failure to protect yet another person he loved.

"Shh, Bruce, shh... it's going to be okay."

The Dark Knight could only press himself closer at those words, doubt filling his being. Will it really? he wondered. The boy he raised and cared for, had learned from, was gone. And he wasn't coming back. It was hard to think that better days were going to come in his time of grief. But- he knew that at some point it would get better. He'd try to patch things up with Jason, and Tim was there to help keep him in check like he had been when he lost Jason. And in turn he would help the grieving boy as well. He'd say the words he never spoke, but felt, that he promised Dick he would.

He'd do it all, just to keep what bit of family he had left with him. He didn't want to loose them. He wouldn't loose them. He'd have a better grip on his precious boys that were still there. He- he just wouldn't loose them.

But that- that was for a later time. Right now... all Bruce wanted-needed- was to weep and let out his grief for the one that fell. Wrapped in the arms of the woman he loved.

Selina felt the arms tighten around her, she tried the roll her tongue to let out a soothing purr. She knew it would be hard, losing a child was always hard. Her arms tightened, her tear ducts had dried up long ago. She doubted she could cry, he knew how healthy Dick had been for her Caped Crusader. It was an absolute atrocity that someone had killed her baby bird. Uhm, his baby bird. Even though she had felt a little bit like a mother to the kid, she knew she'd have never been.

The woman was at a lost of what to do so she'd let him cry out his frustrations. Hopefully his other bird was okay, was he alright? Maybe he needed Bruce too? Or did he not? she wasn't sure so she kept silent letting her fingers drum on his neck as she let the emotionally distressed man cry away his troubles.

Soon the Caped Crusader had no more tears left to shed. He rarely ever cried to begin with and with what occurred the night before to now, well he had used up all his tears. However it didn't stop his shoulders from shaking in silent sobs or his breath from hitching.

Bruce felt the fingers drum along his neck in a soothing motion. It helped him a little. To ease his mind to numbness. He didn't want to think anymore. but that was the problem with being Batman. Thinking never ended. After a moment of just sitting there in Selina's arms, he slowly pulled back. He needed to be strong. Batman was a symbol to many and he needed to be strong. For Tim. For the others. He had to be strong.

Looking up into the eyes of the woman he loved, he felt his heart clench with both pain and tenderness. A hand moved away from where it was wrapped to move up and stroke her face.

"Tell Selina you love her,"

He would. Not now, while he was still mixed up from his grief. But he would. He promised Dick he would, and he'd be damned if he ever broke a promise to Dick.

Selina moved her hand to cup his hand, she blinked her emerald green eyes to Bruce's duller than normal gray, blue eyes. She was at a loss of words. What was there to say? What could she say? She shut her eyes, taking a shallow breath before opening them.

"It's going to be okay, Tall Dark and Brooding. It's going to be okay..." Selina felt like her words were hollow but sweet nothings were better than this suffocating silence. She was half tempted, maybe, to kiss him. To have him react in some way that didn't leave her chest ache with the need to help remove that pained look from his face.

The sweet nothing words echoed into his hears, trying to reassure him that better days would come. He wanted to believe them, he really did. But it was so hard. So hard because all he felt was pain and sorrow. And nothing ever seemed to stay good in his life. As Batman and as Bruce Wayne. What little good he'd find, something would happen and it would fall back down again.

Perhaps those thoughts were a little dark.

I mustn't think like that. I have to be strong. Batman needs to be strong. he thought as he tried to shake those darker thoughts away. Rubbing his thumb against her cheek, he watched Selina with his sorrow filled eyes. This woman that he loved that was trying to help bring some comfort to the Dark Knight's life in this time of misery.

You're in and out of my life so many times. And yet- when I seem to need you the most there you appear. he thought to himself before bringing his face closer to hers. Gently he placed his lips upon hers, hesitant and worried. As if worried she'd too would disappear from his grasp just like Dick. Please don't leave me too.

Selina felt him, worried and hesitant. She felt her heart break, she ran to him whenever she was scared, afraid, or just needed emotional support. (which was beyond her since the man was more emotionally stinted than... a rock?) The amount of emotions worried her. She pressed her lips a bit more firmly on his own, trying to help take away the pain.

She felt tears running down her face before she knew what was happening.

"It's going to be okay, Bruce. It's going to be okay." She whispered out, suddenly more for herself than anything. Dick... God, dick had been the only reason she'd ever have a chance with Bruce. Sure, the man was attractive but again he had the emotional ability of a rock. A sopping wet rock.

But Dick...

Dick brought this side of Bruce out that she had never seen before. It had her head over heels, second guessing her villainy (if you could even call it that.) At one point she thought about giving up for Catwoman costume and being Batwoman. Though, she was pretty sure Bruce would not approve.

then she kissed him once more, trying all so desperately to try to hide her growing pain.

The added pressure of Selina's lips against his gave Bruce a little comfort. This was something he could hold onto. Something solid and there in his arms, not going to vanish from his sight or slip through his fingers. No. This- she was here. And he would hold on.

Wetness was felt lightly against his skin but it wasn't until Selina pulled back that he realized she was crying. A sight he had never seen before.

Upon her words, he could not find the words to speak. But he was having a slightly easier time believing her each time she spoke those words. It would be ok. It had to be.

They kissed once more, filled with more desperation and less gentle. Bruce kissed back just as fiercely, his own desperation to hold on what he had powerful. He didn't want to loose anyone else. But in this world who know how long we have. he thought, those pessimistic views never fully leaving him.

"BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Beast Boy yelled as he skidded past the door to the study. He grabbed the frame and pulled himself in.

"YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE MED LAB QUICK!!! IT'S TIM!!!" He cried out. If Batman didn't start running now he was going to drag the Dark Knight of Gotham City there bodily. Though he had no idea how he would do this.

Upon hearing a sudden shout, Bruce broke away from Selina, his head snapping towards the door just as it opened. Revealing a distressed Beat Boy who looked as if he was running from hell itself.

"YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE MED LAB QUICK!!! IT'S TIM!!!"

Time seemed to slow down the moment those words were spoken. Something was wrong with Tim. No. he thought as panic settled into his heart, his body rising up from his kneeled position. No!

Without a word, the Caped Crusader began to move. His feet took off in a running speed, pushing past the green man and running out into the hall. Something was wrong with Tim! No! I can't loose him too! I can't loose another one of my sons. he thought as he ran.

(( Bitches always taking my man =u= ))

Selina rolled to her feet, gasping when she heard BB come in screaming about Tim. Catlad! Her brain screamed (More or less an inside joke between Tim and herself. Tim had come to her for male wooing advice. She almost felt proud).

She quickly ran after Bruce, her mind still choking as she wiped her face. Closely following Bruce's heels.

No..nooo....no. Ran through her hair, she hurt. Her chest ached even more.

Gar was glad he didn't have to drag the Batman to the med lab. He ran behind Catwoman making sure they got there and no one stopped or got side tracked.
