    Summary

    [sequel to Ice Burn]

    My entire life I’d had words inked in the skin over my heart. My entire life I’d prepared to meet a soulmate I wouldn’t get along with.

    And I didn’t get along with him. But a lot can change in just a few months. Festivals, attacks, kidnappings - we’ve endured it all together so far, and now we’re here, and I guess we stand as proof that soulmateship isn’t just an accident.

    Summary

    There's a lot of crazies running around in the ruins of Gotham, a city in crisis. Whether they're 'good' or 'bad' or have a talent for dancing on that fine line, no one cares.

    They're crazies. They keep blowing things up. They are slowing down traffic.

    Honestly, you didn't care. As long as you could keep your job and not die—or be threatened with death every second Wednesday over a latte—you were fine.

    But at one point, the inevitable will happen. The costumed crazies will run smack-bang into you.

    And you have a lot of work on your hands when you try to get one of them out of a tough spot.

    Summary

    For a while you couldn't say anything, before you blurted out the first thing that came to mind. "You made me drop my pretzel."

    The man's features were hidden under the helmet but you could tell that he was surprised by the answer. You mentally kicked yourself for saying something so stupid and awkward.

    "I-I mean. Thank you. That was what I was meant to say," you chuckled nervously and looked at the pretzel lying in the middle of the street, dropped from when Red Hood had grabbed you.

    But surprisingly, you heard a snort coming from the vigilante. "Well, you're weird. But you're welcome."

    It was stupid of you to think that you could attempt a peaceful life in Gotham.

    Summary

    People who lived outside of Gotham City would most often think of it in terms of its heroes and villains. About Batman and Robin, Joker and Harley Quinn.

    People who actually live in Gotham City would only think of one thing: surviving.

    Who cares about the people in costumes when your house has been bombed for the fifth time, or your wife has been taken hostage just because she worked in a bank?

    Or, in your case, when you have to make regular deliveries to places where even Batman feared to tread?

    Because let's face it. In a world full of superheroes and costumed villains, the real heroes are the ones who make sure that people get their pizzas in forty-five minutes or less.

    Summary

    Here are the rules to survive as a civilian in Gotham City:

    The first rule is to keep your head down. Don't draw attention to yourself. Don't make eye contact. Walk briskly and with purpose. Don't wear anything flashy that can be stolen and most certainly do not walk down that dark alley.

    The second rule is don't be a hero. Avoid confrontations. Walk the other way when you see a standoff. Don't try to help that man getting beat up in the alley, because odds are you'll get killed right along with him. Gotham City has Batman for a reason.

    The third and most important rule is this: Don't get involved with superheroes.

    Or in your case, gun-toting vigilantes.
