Who We Are In Our Hearts

Chapter Text

“I swear to God, if you don't come back, I'm going to find you and beat the shit out of you,” a red haired female in a midnight blue mask said seriously, staring into dark grey eyes.

Said eyes belonged to a dark haired male with a white mask, and he leaned down to place a soft kiss to the girl's lips with a grin.

“Don't worry, I'll be coming straight back to you,” he mumbled.

“You better, damnit,” she grumbled.

“Get a room, you two!” A blonde male with a skull mask groaned.

The dark haired male simply laughed before heading off to distract security. A blonde female with a cat mask placed a hand on the red haired one's shoulder.

“Hey, don't worry,” she assured her friend. “Joker will come back. Just have a little faith.”

The red haired female simply nodded. 'I have a bad feeling about this,’ she thought to herself. 'Please be safe, Joker…’

“Okay, he's out!” An orange haired girl with some type of headgear over her eyes exclaimed. “Head straight ahead, Joker!”

The red haired girl paid no attention to everyone encouraging Joker as he made his getaway to distract the guards while everyone else made their escape.

“Rose?” A mocha haired girl with a black mask and purple feathered hat asked in concern. “Are you okay?”

The red haired girl, who was named Rose, shook her head.

“No, something isn't right?” She said before running off on her own.


“Where are you going!?”

“We have to stay together!”

“Come back!”

Rose ignored her teammates and kept running in the opposite direction as they did. Her gut was telling her that something bad was going to happen, and she always had to listen to her gut when it came to dire situations. That's just the way it was sometimes. She made her way to the roof without much issues, all thanks to Joker distracting security.

However, when Rose made it to the roof, what she saw made her believe that she was right to listen to her instincts. Outside was a bunch of armed police officers with masks, guns, and even those guard shields.

“I knew I had a bad feeling about this,” she said to herself. “I hate to do this, but I've gotta make a clear path for him somehow…”

That being said, Rose pulled out an antitank rifle from behind her, placed one heeled foot over the railing on the top, and pointed passed the large group of cops. She had no intentions of harming anyone, and she would never risk property damage; however, if Joker was going to get passed them, then these guys would need to be distracted. That distraction had to be very large and messy.

Rose aimed towards a building and made sure to check for no civilians. When it was clear, she gave a curt nod.

“Alright, time to fire away,” she mumbled to herself.

However, she felt something hard smack the back of her head, and she yelped in pain. She nearly fell off the building, had her attacker not pulled her into their arms as her vision started to fade along with her consciousness.

“W-what…” Rose didn't get the chance to say anything else, it even catch a glimpse of the perpetrator, as she passed out in the arms of the enemy.

“Ahhh!” The orange haired girl screamed. “I lost Rose's signal!!”

“What!? What do you mean you lost her signal!?” A cat like creature shouted.

The orange haired girl ignored the cat and immediately contacted Joker.

“Joker, I lost Rose's signal! She's gone!!”

“What!?” Joker gasped while he was hiding. “What do you mean she's gone!?”

“She took off by herself and we can't find her anywhere!”

“Let's not worry right now!” The cat urged. “Rose will be fine! She can handle herself. Just focus on escaping!”

Joker gripped his gloved hands into fists before getting up and running towards the exit Oracle was leading him to. God, he hoped his little red was okay, otherwise he wouldn't know what he'd do if she wasn't. He had faith in her though, so he shouldn't worry, right?


Several hours later 

The red head eventually came to with a groan and opened her purple eyes. When she tried to reach her hand up, both of them were raised and she saw that they held by cuffs.

“What the…?”

She struggled to get them off, but to no avail. She moved her feet, which were also the only ones that weren't bound, and shifted her legs so that her feet pressed against the surface beneath her. She noticed that she was on a bed, which was strange.

Rose pressed down on her feet and grunted as she lifted her upper body up with ease.

“God, if only my boobs weren't so big,” she groaned, holding her head with both hands.

Rose took in her surroundings and felt her face, noting that her mask was gone. She must've been captured and taken to the real world.

“Ah, I see you've finally come to…”

Rose froze at the familiar voice and she spent turned to the source. Her eyes widened in shock.

“You…. It can't be….”
