As Bat Man cradled her in his arm behind a dumpster in a dark secluded alley, somewhere in the labyrinths of Gotham city, there was complete silence .. except for the sound of cold piercing rain .. everything had come to a stand still as though they were the last living creatures on earth.
Oh! What have I done, Bat Man cried out loud as he saw Cat Woman’s blood ooze out of her back and mix with the rain, then trickle down and stain the ground beneath them.
She looked so pale and fragile with his dagger buried deep into her back and right through her heart.
And as her life slowly ebbed away, Cat Woman said, “You chose the sweetest words to get to my heart but the most poisonous action to break it.”
Bat Man: “Selena.. I lost my mind, trying to understand yours. I don’t know what to say.”
Cat Woman: “I am Chaos to your thoughts and you are poison to my heart. Nothing makes me happier and nothing makes me sadder than you. Farewell my sweet Bruce. I could never really figure you out but I forgive you. Maybe, if destined, we shall meet again in some other universe but for now, it’s time for me to go. I don’t belong to you. I never did.”
Then Cat Woman choked and gurgled blood and went limp and lifeless in Bat Man’s arm.
There was silence once again.
Were those tears or just the rain that was trickling down Bat Man’s face? .. Rain that was as cold and icy as his frigid heart. Rain that was as sharp and piercing as his dagger.
He left her body behind in the alley and walked away, with his head bent low, into the darkness, never to look back or love anybody else so passionately ever again.
From a distance, nothing was visible to the naked eye. Except for the blade of Bat Man’s knife, a gleam of silver stained with red that was slowly fading away in the rain.
Cat Woman’s body was no where to be found.
