"Is she dead?"
"No, just unconscious."
"Hey, that looks like the girl that got away earlier!"
"Looks like we'll have a good excuse for the boss when we get back then."
Amy had regained consciousness a while back but kept still and quiet, hoping the clown thugs would think that she was dead and just leave. But it wasn't enough to fool them if they could feel that her heart was still beating. /Damnit damnit damnit! Why don't any of my fucking plans ever work out! I only had one plan that actually worked and that's it!
/ She let out a few mental curses, her hands curling into fists as anger and frustration rose up inside her. /Might as well end this little charade and get on with it.
"Can we have fun with her first?"
/Definitely time to end it!
/ Her eyes immediately opened as she sat up, only to feel a shot of pain hit her where the bat had struck her head. The blood had dried a bit but some of it was still fresh and wet. "No you may not! And if you try I'll make sure to call the rest of the robots here so they can kill you both!" it was a bluff but there was no way these idiots would know that.
Reese scoffed at Amy. "You're bluffing. There's no way you can do that."
/ "I can!" she pulled out her phone. "And I can prove it."
Unfortunately before she could even continue on with her plan Jeff snatched her phone away as he looked at it with interest, staring at it while touching the screen. "Cool phone. Did you steal this?" he asked.
Amy only glared at him. "Oh yeah, I was put in here for stealing a goddamn phone, I bought it you fucking retard!" she shouted, slowly standing up to keep herself from becoming dizzy and fall over.
"Retard? I think you owe my buddy an apology for that rude comment." Reese said, chuckling.
"Fuck you both, I don't apologize to anyone." Amy replied. "Now give me the phone or I will punch you in the throat." she spoke in a dangerous tone.
"Oooh, we're so scared!" Reese commented, gripping the bat tightly in his hand, ready to use it again if he had to.
"I'm not hurting it, and I don't think you'll be needing it after we hand you over to Joker." Jeff said. "Once he's through with you this phone will be mine."
/That's it. I'm done playing nice. They had their chance and blew it.
/ Truthfully Amy had wanted to do this ever since she arrived in Arkham City, now she will have her chance. "Hey, want to know a secret?" she asked Reese.
Reese raised a brow, giving her a questioning look. "What secret?" he asked.
Amy gestured him to move closer to her, smiling as he did so with no complaint or refusal. "Here's my secret." she said.
Warmth. Wetness. Sticky.
It was difficult for Reese to comprehend what was happening. "What the-" he felt a piercing pain coming from his stomach, something sharp penetrating his flesh.
Looking down at his stomach Reese was met with the sight of a bowie knife, the hilt of the knife almost touched him as the rest of the blade was hidden inside his stomach. He looked at Amy with a look of surprise and disbelief, amazed that a girl like herself would do something like this. And what scared him about it is that Amy was smiling a very creepy insane smile as she gave a quick twist of the knife, causing Reese to cringe and grunt from the pain it created.
Slowly she began to pull the blade out, blood covering the knife as it began to pour out freely from the gaping wound made from the knife. Blood splattered to the ground as Reese dropped to his knees, staring up at Amy with a pleading look in his eyes. Would she spare his life after greatly wounding him? Or would she give him another torturing wound for him to deal with. He glanced at the blood covered knife that she held in front of his face, the end of the blade dangerously close to his face.
"Jeff-" Reese began to say before he was abruptly cut off.
With a slow but careful move Amy pressed the blade against Reeses' neck, slicing his throat as she pulled the knife across, pressing hard against his skin. More blood began to pour from the newly opened wound, some of the blood occasionally squirting out as well, splattering onto Amy's shirt but that did not bother her at all. She stood there, watching Reese in silence as he fell over, choking and sputtering as blood escaped from his mouth before he went quiet and still.
"You say something Reese?" Jeff asked, turning to look at him only to be horrified by the bloody sight that lay before him. He stared with a horrified look as his mouth was agape, letting the phone in his hand drop to the ground. He turned his look to Amy, backing up slowly in case she decided to attack him next.
Amy could feel the adrenaline rush coursing through her after what she had done, her mind and thoughts were nothing but a blur. She wanted more. /Maybe I should kill Jeff.
/ She turned her attention to the terrified clown, holding her knife as if ready to attack. /Wait, I need him. Can't make it out of here without having some kind of protection.
/ Amy leaned over Reeses' body, sliding the blade against his shirt to wipe away the blood that covered the blade. Once it was clean she put the knife back into its sheathe and gave an innocent smile at Jeff. /If Jeff manages to make it out alive maybe he'll start spreading the word about what I did. Then no one will think fuck with me.
"Alright, we can do this my way or I can kill you and be on my merry way without a care in the world. Your choice." she spoke, her tone making it sound like a warning.
Jeff did not show any signs of complaint as he gave Amy a weak and nervous smile, nodding. "We'll do it your way! No other way is better than your way!" he said, the terror in his voice could be easily heard.
Amy began walking over to Jeff. "Awesome sauce! Now, where is my phone- oh, there it is...on the goddamn ground." she said in irritation, picking it up to discover the whole screen was now cracked. She stared at her phone in silence for a moment before showing it to Jeff, glaring at him. "What, the fuck. Is this how you handle other people's shit?" she asked, tapping her foot impatiently.
"Uuuhh..." was all that Jeff could say, unable to think of a good excuse.
Amy rolled her eyes. "Never mind, just fucking forget it. Now let's get moving before something else decides to show up and say hi." she said before walking off in the direction the clowns had originally been heading in.
He was hesitant to follow at first but walked after her quickly, not wanting to be left alone and attacked. Jeff couldn't help but stare at Amy, amazed at how quickly she had killed off Reese and asserted her authority without any fear. The girl was clearly mad and insane, reminding him of Joker. It made him think if this girl was secretly related to the Joker somehow, but he never heard anyone mentioning or knowing of Harley being pregnant, much less having a baby. There would be no way to keep that a secret from everyone.
Unfortunately Jeff would never find out after being knocked out by a blunt object.
Amy had no idea that she was walking alone at this point, but she still felt confident as she walked on. /Maybe I should have Jeff in front in case anything tries to get the jump on me.
/ Her confidence flew out the window when she turned around to see that Jeff was gone, leaving her by herself. If he had decided to go back she would've still been able to see him thanks to the lack of hiding spots. If he had went past Amy she would have definitely noticed unless her mind had been in LaLa Land at the time.
The sudden vibration of the phone in her hand made her jump, the feeling of panic almost rising as she closed her eyes, trying to calm herself. Once she felt calm enough Amy answered the phone, expecting to hear Nick's voice when she answered. "Are you checking up on me again? I told you I'm fine." she said.
"Are you fine?" spoke a very familiar terrifying voice. "Last time I heard you had a target on your back with two bullets that had your name on them, hehehahahehehaha!!!"
/Why does his laughter have to be so goddamn creepy!
/ Amy continued to walk, picking up the pace while searching around her. "How the fuck did you get my number! I don't remember exchanging numbers with you before I left!"
"Well you were asleep at the time so I went ahead and added myself on your phone!" Joker said, chuckling as well as coughing. "I didn't want to be rude and disturb you! By the way, I didn't know I had my own personal stalker! How did you manage to get such great pictures of me!" he asked, laughing and coughing harshly. "I must say you captured my good side!"
/Motherfucker. He went through my goddamn phone and saw the pictures! Fuck! How do I lie my way out of this one!
/ Thinking of a lie was a talent that Amy did not have. "That is classified information that I cannot share with you so fuck off!"
"Not willing to say? I'm sure you'll want to tell me all about it when we meet again!" he said, laughing before ending the call.
Muttering several curses as she pocketed her phone Amy face-palmed, her hand sliding down her face while leaving large streaks of still fresh blood. Once she took notice of the blood on her hand and what she had done Amy groaned in frustration. "Goddamnit all to hell!" she shouted, desperately wanting to punch something.
"Alice? Why are you so upset my sweet Alice?" spoke a strange male voice coming from everywhere around her. "Maybe you should rest and then we can have our little tea party with our guests!"
"Who the fuck is Alice?" Amy said, trying to find the source of the voice. "My name is Amy, not Alice you fucking asshole!"
The sight of a small figure, not even reaching her own height made itself known in front of her before her vision became blurry and darkness swallowed her once again.
A fist slammed down on a table in clear frustration as the main monitor was showing Amy's body moving around, possibly being carried off to God knows where. Hugo was already upset that Deadshot had shot the girl twice in the arm after clearly explaining to not harm her, but then again he was impressed by her nature to kill another with no remorse whatsoever. Maybe she would prove more useful than he previously thought.
"The pieces that were managed to be salvaged are being prepared as we speak." Ra's spoke, standing close by, glancing every once in a while at the monitors. "My assassins are searching the city for the other animatronics and will notify me when they have found one."
Hugo looked at Ra's, giving a nod. "Good. My TYGER guards are also on the look out for them. So far they found another damaged animatronic that seems to have exploded. I'm guessing Batman is also on the hunt as well but for a different purpose."
"Protocol 10 will be used as a backup if Protocol 9 is a failure." Ra's replied, making his way out of the room. "You better pray for your plan to succeed, Hugo Strange." and with that said he was gone.
Hugo turned his attention back to the monitors, keeping an eye on what was happening to Amy. "I do not need to pray for my success. I have my knowledge and science to rely on."
