Cat Eyes in the Night

Work Text:

“Now, don’t scream, and I won’t kill you.”

His hot breath warmed her ear. Sally knew she couldn’t scream, even if she wanted to. He’d knocked all the air out of her with that last punch. His one hand was firm against her mouth and she whined as his fingers bit down into her cheeks. His other hand was already fumbling around with the waistband to her shorts. She sobbed and hitched under his hand. His grip tightened, and it felt as if her jaw might just give up and break.

“Now, be quiet,” he said right before pushing her head back into the alley’s brick wall. Sally saw stars for a moment. Doing her best not to scream, she chewed the inside of her mouth. Her waist moved and jived with his hand. He was pulling the band, trying to rip it off, and only succeeding in frustrating himself. Harder and harder he pulled by the moment; Sally could feel the band digging into her flesh.

“Just the thing I needed,” he said and pushed her to the cold, slimy ground. Sally saw her chance and was immediately on her feet. She pumped her legs as hard as she could possibly go, and yet it felt like she was in a slow dream. The alley seemed as long as eternity. A car passed at the end of eternity. Then Sally remembered she could scream. She pushed the trapped wail out of her lungs, but it bounced off his hand and back down her throat.

His hand clamped her jaw and she squealed underneath his grasp. He spun her around, his other hand wielding a silver blade. She could see the lights of freedom reflecting off the blade.

Then there was a shadow as if there was movement of some kind. As if... no, just her hopeful imagination. He smiled with yellow teeth and the stench of numerous smoked weeds.

“I’m fast, huh?” he said with a sick pride. “Now I told you, as long as you listened and stayed quiet, I wouldn’t kill you. I made a promise to you, and I never break a promise. I don’t really want to hurt you, anyway. Who would want to hurt such a beautiful young lady such as... well, yourself?”

She heard his zipper come down and felt something soft poke her skin. “I love you.”

He let go of her mouth then, and Sally might have screamed, but now both his hands and his knife was at her waistband. She could feel the cold metal against her belly. Then there was a prick, and he cut through the waistband. Her waist expanded minutely, and there was a small giggle of glee from her assailant. Then her shorts were around her ankles, followed by her white panties. She felt herself being lowered to the cold ground and gasped before mentally telling herself this wasn’t her body — that no matter what, this wasn’t her body.

He smiled the happiest smile ever. Sally looked into his eyes and instantly knew what he was. He was an incarnation of the devil, and he was encased in an angel’s shell in order to tempt her.

And, boy, did he tempt her.

Then, there it was again, a shadow from the rooftops, something moving. Then it all happened so fast, nobody really knew what was going on. The shadow dropped from the roof and grabbed Sally’s rapist by his neck. The shadow held tight and the rapist gasped. He beat against the shadow’s arm, flailing and kicking his legs, but it was no use. The shadow held strong, unflinching.

Finally, Sally’s assailant went limp. The shadow dropped him to the ground and turned to go, but then stopped as though considering something. Sally, in the meantime, reached for her shorts, and managed to pull them back up while still sitting down.

Her savior walked over to her and gallantly held out his hand; she placed her hand in his, and he pulled her to her feet. Then for the first time, she saw his face. He had dark chocolate eyes hidden behind the black sunglasses he was wearing, and long hair that was the color of a raven’s wings.

Yet she could still see his eyes behind the sunglasses... sort of. The music coming from the nightclub a few feet away pounded so much in her ears that it almost sounded like her heartbeat. She was sure he could hear it, too.

So so so scandalous
You know you wanna sing with us
That’s why you know you should be scared of us

Last night, looks to kill
Straight talk, sex appeal
One touch gives me chills
and we ain’t even close yet
Ruffneck all around
ain’t been all over town
Show me how you get down
‛cause we ain’t even close yet

Bridge
You got me feeling and you got me feeling weak
Listen as I speak ‛cause I’m careful as a freak
You got me going crazy and you know I can’t sleep
I love watchin’ your moves and you hypnotize me
You got me trembling like a little baby girl
You’re so special, you’re like diamonds and pearls
You got me spinning and you got me in a twirl
You’re my number 1 baby and you’ve come to rock my world

Chorus
You’re dangerous
Just get it off
The way you move, so scandalous
It’s all about the 2 of us,
a 1 night stand just ain’t enough
I need some stimulation baby,
a little conversation maybe
You got me spinnin’ ‛round like crazy
There goes my baby

Scandalous
So Scandalous
Scandalous
So Scandalous

Hot stuff, head to toe
where you go, no one knows
you smile, plenty don’t
and we ain’t even close yet

Solid as a rock
How many ways can you hit the spot
show me what you got
‛cause we ain’t even close yet

You got me feeling and you got me feeling weak
Listen as I speak coz I’m careful as a freak
You got me going crazy and you know I can’t sleep
I love watchin’ your moves and you hypnotize me
You got me trembling like a little baby girl
You’re so special, you’re like diamonds and pearls
You got me spinning and you got me in a twirl
You’re my number 1 baby and you’ve come to rock my world

You’re dangerous
Just get it off
The way you move
so scandalous
It’s all about the 2 of us
A one-night stand just ain’t enough
I need some stimulation, baby
A little conversation, maybe
You’ve got me spinnin’ ‛round like crazy
There goes my baby

Scandalous

A little conversation

Shows a little patience
that you are here to stay

So show me that game, oh

You’re dangerous
Just get it off
the way you move
so scandalous
It’s all about the 2 of us
A one night stand just ain’t enough

A little conversation, baby
You’ve got me spinnin’ ‛round like crazy
There goes my baby

You’re dangerous
Just get it off
The way you move

There goes my baby

You know you wanna sing with us
That’s why you know you should be scared of us
You know you wanna sing with us
That’s why you know you should be scared of us baby

Then Sally felt herself pulled up against her savior’s body. “Call me... Night Cat,” he purred. After lifting her hand to his lips and kissing it in a gallant manner, he took off, leaping through the night sky. She smiled to herself.

Bobby Keller couldn’t help but smile to himself. Being Night Cat was a lot of fun. He then remembered how he had gotten to be the way he was, and a smile crossed his face.

One night, everything had changed. His former boss was 24-year-old Tenchi Okama from Japan. Tenchi had a bad side, and was often known for walking all over people whom he considered weak.

After having accidentally discovered a secret about Tenchi, Bobby said, “Okay. Go ahead. Intimidate me. Bully me if it makes you feel big. I mean, it’s not like you can just kill me.”

That was all it took. It was then that Tenchi had pushed Bobby out of a window. Then he was found — and bitten by — a man they called Catman. The bite... transformed him. Bobby soon discovered he could leap up walls, move a lot quicker and be able to land on his feet quite easily.

Anyway, now he landed on top of a nightclub — a different one. He sensed his prey — Tenchi — coming, and snuck in through a window. For a while, he simply watched as Tenchi sat, listening to the music.

Finally, upon seeing Tenchi walking out a back door and into an alley, Bobby made his move. Before Tenchi knew what was happening, he was pushed to the ground and turned over. His eyes widened in both recognition and horror when he saw who it was.

“Bobby Keller!” Tenchi said.

Bobby smirked. “The other night,” he purred, “you killed somebody. He was a nice boy. Why did you kill him?”

Tenchi was unable to think of an answer. Bobby then reached down and grabbed Tenchi’s tongue.

“What’s the matter?” he said mockingly. “Cat got your tongue?”

Then, when he got off of Tenchi, he got to his feet. Bobby seized the opportunity to deliver the first stunning blow with a whirligig kick, and as a result, Tenchi was knocked out — for good.

Bobby then leaped up a wall and onto the top of a building, where he sat Indian style. He smirked to himself. Yep, being Bobby Keller and Night Cat definitely was a lot of fun.

Then Miss Kitty, Catwoman’s cat, was suddenly sitting beside him.

“I don’t know about you, Miss Kitty,” Bobby purred, “but I feel... so much yummier.”
