I woke up to whispering. What is going on? The last thing I remember is mommy and daddy was about to get on stage and I was back stage about to fall asleep. Daddy gave me a kiss on my head and said he would be back later. Now I am here. I lift up my head and open my eyes after yawning and rubbing my eyes with my little hands I look around. There was about 5 kids and a woman. I was inside some place and saw more kids having fun outside. The woman smiled at me.
"Hello I am Suzy. What is your name honey?" she asked.
"where is mommy and daddy?" I ask.
"honey they were killed on one of their acts while you were asleep.

Chapter 14 - The Reign Ends
A constant, strong wind blew on Jervis's back that made him feel as light as a feather. All previous tension was released at once, and he even had trouble remembering what it was that had upset him.
His eyes noticed an odd sight: someone – no, it was his friend Jonathan! He recognized that funny, old mask he liked to wear – was looking at him, bent over some kind of edge. Perhaps it is a wall? he mused. Jervis was certain it was made of stone. And glass.
However, his friend's silhouette seemed to back away as it was constantly becoming smaller. This

I wake up to someone shaking me lightly.
"Harley... Harley. Get up Harley!" Jason whisper yells at me.
"what time is it?" I groan as I pull the blanket over my head.
"it's six in the morning but I have a surprise for you." he pulled the blanket off my head. Jason getting up this early for me? This has to be good. I open my eyes. It was still dark outside. Jason smiles down at me. His hair was messy because he most likely didn't brush it. I smiled at him. Pulling myself up.

Days went by and nothing important really happened. Jason didn't kiss me. Which made me kinda sad and we really were just friends. Never once saying I love you. This all changed on a morning when I woke up to a lovely scream. One that could only be Miss. Numb. Did Jason do something to her? I asked myself as I pulled myself out of bed and changes into some jeans and a blue shirt. I brushes out my hair and pulled it into pigtails. Jason ran in and he was laughing. Yep. He did something to Miss. Numb.

The next day was boring. So boring. Miss. Numb was punishing me and Jason for this trick we pulled on her. We were not allowed to see one another yesterday. I just sat in my room most of the day. When I looked through the window I saw Jason outside in a tree starting at people like he was going to jump on one of them any second. Like he was planning a fate for them. He never did anything thing though. That I was grateful for. The new day started and I sat in my room for most the morning watching kids come in and out. Jason soon came in.

"'You belong here.' Those were the last words that the Batman said to me. Honestly, I don't know what I did wrong. I loved. Is that my crime? I loved and cared for someone enough to be labeled 'crazy'? But love is crazy! Nothing but crazy. "
The group stared at him. Some scoffing, others were too drugged up to care. I, however, watched him. He was nervous and seemed quite shy. It took a lot to get him to open up. The doctors had to give him his top hat to make him talk. He seemed so uncomfortable next to the Joker. Couldn't blame him. If we 'Belonged here', Joker was the one that belonged the most. Out of all of us, he was the most
Big Mistake - Page 4The days passed, Harley felt like today was her last in this hospital. Then she would go to Arkham. She was slightly glad; staring at these same walls was getting boring. But once she got to Arkham, the only thing she would see would be her bare empty cell and the room where her therapy sessions would be.Big Mistake - Page 42 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
She always hated how the cells were so empty. Nothing at all was in them, rarely a flimsy bed and the tightly locked door. She had counted every tile on the floor, wall, and ceiling. 87 tiles on the floor, 142 on all four walls, and 75 on the ceiling. Every cell was built the same, every cell and those numbers.

He gave a last disappointed look at her, laying unconscious and bruised on the floor. "...big mistake..." He muttered and straightened his coat.
"It wasn't her fault your plan failed, Joker."
Batman. Great. Joker didn't bother to look around for him. He was hiding in the shadows somewhere.
"It was mine."
Joker bit his lip in annoyance. "Yeah, but unfortunatelyyyy, you're not my personal punching bag."
That made Batman mad. He always had a soft spot for Harl. Joker was knocked to the ground by Batman's

"We needed those explosives, Harl!!!! What the hell happened to them?!?" He grabbed her torn shirt and yanked her up.

I sling my arm over Jason's shoulder snuggling up against him. The room was cold. Icy cold. I shivered as I slung my blanket over us. I looked around the room. It had white walls with a pale carpet. there was about four beds in the room all with a sticker on them with the name of whose bed it was. Every bed was the same. Dark brown blankets with three pillows. The pillow covers were a light brown. There was one single light on the ceiling. The walls were bare. I sighed at the look of this room. It was empty and boring. I always wanted my room to be a soft yellow with light blue covers. When I close my eyes all I can

The doctor is in,
Don't ask what's in that needle
As he lifts your chin.
The prick of a pin
In your jugular vein
You start to feel fear,
You start to feel pain.
Doctor what's the problem?
Who turned off the lights?
I'm really feeling frightened
And I see something that bites.
What is that I feel,
Crawling up my arm?
Doctor can't you see it?
I think it will cause me harm.
You hear and evil cackle
Now there is a sadistic grin
You're sure that's not the doctor,
As the toxin sets in.
With a crazy smile,
He asks you what you see.
All you do is scream,
And beg to be let free.
Doctor why don't you help me?

He cleared his throat and smiled at her from the chair. If Harley didn't hate her restraints before, she sure hated them now!

Joker's menacing shouts and painted face echoed in her soul, burning it away like acid. Even when he wasn't close to her, he damaged her.
She woke up to the beeping sound of a heart monitor and found herself in a hospital room. She couldn't care less. She didn't care what the hell happened to her now. Harley felt a needle in her arm and looked over to see a tube filled with slightly blue-ish liquid. Morphine. That's why she couldn't feel any pain right

A younger me runs through a field of wildflowers with the girl of my dreams. Suddenly I fall backwards, she playfully tackled me. I caress her cheek with one of my long hands, and she melts into it, closing her beautiful blue eyes.
I felt my stomach clench nervously, as it always does before I lean in to kiss her. Our lips touch and I feel electricity course through my veins. What is this amazing girl doing to me? I pull away and see her contented smile. She falls back back into the flowers, eyes closed, enjoying the last rays of sunshine before the night sets in.
