Wonderverse 5: The Dark Knight’s Prodigy Ch.43 “Return to Wonderland”
I returned to Gotham to further my investigation on Oliver’s killer, I then I crossed paths with someone I’d never thought I’d see again... White Rabbit: “Gotham is a city of change, this city can take the best or worst parts of you and amplify one or the other... I was born into crime and I didn’t have a choice to be good like you.” Jaina Hudson AKA The White Rabbit, she used to be apart of the Wonderland Gang along side March Harriet, but months before project Wonderland started, she and I dated... sadly it didn’t end well. I kept silent, it’s best to let her vent, I learned that a while ago.
White Rabbit: “I used to believe I could be good, that I could be like you, but then you-you did what you do... caught me and left me for the cops...” Batman: “There are things I wish I could’ve changed too Jaina, but what happened... it happened.” White Rabbit: “So you keep reminding me. Every time I saw you weather it was on a date or on the rooftops I knew there was something that you weren’t telling me.” Batman: “I was trying to warn you that what we had was dangerous.” White Rabbit: “I thought you meant the fun type of danger, not the type that would make you turn me in for something I didn’t even do!” Batman: “Because you were still involved... look... Jaina... I need your help.” She turns and smirks, that was the same smirk Selina gave me, once that happened I knew one of two things would happen. One: She tells me everything she knows, Two: She makes me chase her for the answers to my case.
White Rabbit: “Fine, I’ll help you out...” Steady old man, don’t let her control the situation.
White Rabbit: “The guy in sunglasses, he’s got some mercenaries to take down a few capes and masks here and there... I assume that Oliver Queen was the one your more interested in.” Batman: “Who killed him Jaina?” White Rabbit: “You wanna know?” She puts one foot out and starts running, dammit, you let her do it again you dumb bastard. I start running after her and she leads me to where it all began the original Miagani island... we all just call it Wonderland now.
