    Summary

    “You want to know the nature of my relationship with him.”

    “Yes.”

    “Because you’re concerned I aided and abetted a known criminal.”

    “Did you?”

    I saved his life. He ate my food. He drove me up the wall. We drank wine together. We laughed. He sent me roses. “I found Mr. Cobblepot wounded, and dying in the woods. I nursed him back to health. He owed me his life, which is why I trusted him when he said he had changed his ways. It was an innocent mistake.” We drank wine. I played the piano, he sang. He laughed at my jokes and looked me in the eye and smiled. He sent me roses.

    -

    27 days after Edward Nygma and Oswald Cobblepot part ways for the first time, the city-wide manhunt for the Penguin ends in Oswald's capture and incarceration at Arkham. An overheard conversation sends Ed searching for answers deep inside the Asylum. But Arkham is more than just a game or a riddle, and soon Ed finds himself in over his head. In the mazes of Arkham Asylum and Gotham city, as Ed and Oswald struggle to hold on to who they are, and to discover who they might become, both could use a friend to walk with in the dark.

    Summary

    The consensus the others come to, as far as Richie can tell, is this: the four of them who are still able to walk will lure It into a small space to kill It, and once It is dead, they’ll haul ass back over to Richie and Eddie and, assuming they haven’t already bled out, they’ll pull them up and out of the sewers and to a hospital. It seems like a solid enough plan to Richie, who isn’t really convinced either of them are going to survive to get out of here at all. He voices as much to Eddie, who coughs hard and glares at him.

    “You think I don’t know that, asshole? You got stabbed through me, I’m pretty fucking aware of how dire our situation is. You don’t have to say it.”

    “Saying things is kind of my whole spiel, Eddie my love,” Richie laughs, and it hurts like hell.
