The Burning Watch
*NOTE: This introduces a very......important character. I'm restricting information on her for the fourth book in the RoR series.*
Revenge stepped out of the hot シャワー and wiped off the mirror. His face was ragged and worn. Along with three distinct claw marks down his left cheek he had hidden using an unstable formula. Dark circles under his eyes only added to the emphasis of his sleepless nights like he feared this one would be.
He dried off and slipped into his Red Revenge suit, seeing no purpose in staying in civilian clothes. He took the note that had been on his mind. It had been written in scrawny handwriting. The message was simple, but Revenge assumed it meant more.
'Im robbing the the docks at eight o'clock this Tuesday'. Revenge had found it attached to his motorcycle after a drug bust with Draxx. Any normal person might have assumed it meant that whoever it was was going to rob the docks at 8 o'clock this Tuesday. But Revenge was not normal. For one, he was a crime-fighting vigilante. For another, he was paranoid. For third, he had a genius IQ and assumed the note meant more.
And normally he was right.
Revenge stared at it. It reminded him of a time when the Joker had been missing and he kept leaving clues for バットマン to unravel. The final one had been his voice.
"How do あなた hide a secret from the world's greatest detective? あなた shove it right up his nose!"
Revenge's phone rang. He sighed and picked it up before answering.
"What is it, Aulice?" Sam asked.
"Have あなた figured out the clue yet, Sam?" the female's voice came back over the phone.
Revenge sighed. "No, not yet. It's so obvious, but at the same time so complicated."
"Well あなた might wanna hurry. Eight o'clock is coming fast."
Sam sighed. "I am."
His partner hung up the phone and Revenge turned back to the note. Joker's voice echoed in his head. 'You shove it right up his nose!' 'You shove it right up his nose!' 'You shove it right up his nose!'
"Well that was fast."
"What about Revenge?" the guy asked.
The 秒 male shoved the package into the back of the truck. "I told him we'd be here."
"You what?!" the first and third exclaimed.
"I told him what we were doing, when, and where. But he will over think it. And justice won't be served."
"I beg to differ."
The three men pulled out pistols and fired at the Black Hero.
"You really think that's going to work?" a female voice asked behind them.
"Hey Red! Who's your new girlfriend?"
"Wouldn't あなた like to know?" Revenge replied, grappling down and landing a kick to the man's face.
The female's costume was a black body suit with an image of a red atom on her chest. Her white boots cemented themselves in the ground, she extended her white-gloved hands, and her eyes glowed red from beneath the handkerchief that covered the 上, ページのトップへ half of her head.
The final man screamed, his watch turning molten red. He passed out and Matter's eyes stopped glowing.
"Y'know, even without superpowers, ヒイラギ, ホリー would've found some way to take him down without hurting him like that."
"You aren't still praising her, are you?" Matter asked, kicking the limp body of one of the robberers.
"No, Revenge said, grinning. "I'm complaining."
"Well I think あなた learned your moral." Matter said.
"I need もっと見る sleep, yeah, I knew." Revenge 発言しました smartly.
"That あなた over think things." Matter replied.
"Yeah, I guess."
The girl grinned, her fiery red hair whipping in the wind. Police cars sounded in the distance and the two grappled off.
