"Come on now, get those poles up! Opening night's tonight!" From all around the empty lot trucks and people crowded in to start set up, it was always a long and dull process with everyone having to pitch in to get done in time...all but one.
"Richard can you come here?" A small raven-haired head poked around the door of the trailer following the summons.
"Yes mamă?"
"I need you to try this one for me, I fixed where you ripped it during the last performance and it should be good as new." Mary Grayson handed her son the red and yellow shirt which he quickly took, running to the back of the trailer to try it on.

Mary stood outside of the closed door and waited for Richard to come out. "Well?"
"It's perfect!" Richard burst through the door, flipping once before standing before his mother.
"You look just like your father." She ran a hand through his hair before gently leading him back into the room. "But you should change before you go help him."
"Alright mamă." The boy laughed and followed his mother's orders.


Before long he was trailing after on of the crew helping set up one of the tents for that night. He couldn't lift the poles or carry the heavy folds of material but he could fetch small things like hammers, and and clipboards. So far the circus was beginning to look like an actual circus, and people were finally getting the chance to relax, Richard included. When he had gotten the okay from the crew he dashed off to one of his favourite places -- the elephant tent.

"Ahh, the littlest Grayson. Here to see Zitka?" The trainer knew exactly why Richard was here and was never surprised to find the child curled up at the animal's feet asleep from time to time.
"Yep! Can I go see her?" His blue eyes pleaded with the man who couldn't help but chuckle.
"Oh course, I think she's been waiting for you." Richard smiled and made his way to the familiar creature, hearing her trumpeting even before he saw her. When he came around the corner he was wrapped in her trunk and hoisted high int he air to rest on the elephant's back. He laughed and hugged her neck, laying down and watching the world from his new perch.
"Tonight's the night Zitka, opening night!"

Bruce was in a meeting at his company Wayne enterprises even though he had fallen asleep half way through it because he did have a long night Bruce woke up to see everyone leaving he looked around to see his friend Lucius Fox he stood up and started to walk towards Lucius "hey there Lucius I was wondering if there was anything interesting going on tonight."

Lucius look up at Bruce "well mister Wayne there is a circus act tonight may I ask what you have planed tonight if you don't mind" Lucius watched Bruce for an answer. Bruce listened to fox for a minuet "alright well I may be asking a certain someone out on a date tonight and was just wondering if you knew anything would be happening tonight". Bruce looked around the room then back to Lucius "also thanks for the idea of the circus she may like that so I guess I'll see you around tomorrow Fox". Lucius looked at Bruce and Laughed at him a bit "Indeed you will Mister Wayne I'll be hear when ever you need me." Lucius packed up his things and left the Bruce and the room Bruce picked up his jacket and left the room and then walked out of the building towards his Lamborghini and drove back to the manner.

Bruce walked into his home and went upstairs to get things ready for his date tonight the first thing to do was call Miss Vicky Vale to set up the date he picked up the phone in his room and dialed her number. "Hey Vicky I was wondering if you would like to go out for dinner and then a circus act tonight." He waited for her to answer him Vicky listened to what Bruce had to say "well of course what could possibly go wrong and maybe you won't have to rush off half way through the date." Bruce laughed "No promises Vicky so is it a date" Bruce waited for her answer. Vicky though about it "alright so when will you be picking me up at". Bruce looked around his bedroom until he found the clock and look at the time "I guess at 8 o'clock tonight". Vicky heard what he said "Sure can't wait to see you then". Bruce was really happy to hear that "alright Vicky" Bruce hung up the phone he decided to get ready he set out the suit he was going to wear tonight when his trusted Butler Alfred came into the room "planning to go out tonight sir". Bruce turned around to see Alfred "well I may be going out with some one tonight just to let you know that you will have the manner to your self tonight". Alfred looked around the room "well would this some one special be the Miss Vicky Vale perhaps" Alfred waited for Bruce to answer. Bruce looked over at Alfred "maybe and I would need you to watch the bat computer to make sure no one escapes from arkham okay". Alfred looked over at Bruce "yes master Bruce anything else you would like me to do". Bruce thought about it "no I think that's it" Bruce walked out of the room and headed down stairs to the living room to relax for a bit Alfred followed close behind.

Richard shivered from where he stood outside with his parents, the cool evening breeze mixed with the anticipation of the show causing him to have chills and butterflies at the same time. He could hear Haly announcing the next act from the ring, standing atop his stool with a megaphone clutched in his hand as the crowd cheered. This wasn't his first time performing but something wasn't right about tonight. For starters Richard had overheard Haly arguing with another man earlier today, someone that didn't belong to the circus. Richard had been returning to his family's trailer in preparation for that night's show and had paid no attention, that is until he had seen the same man tampering with the lines to be used by his parents that night.

So while the act before them ended to a roar from the audience and Haly began to introduce the next Richard nervously bit his lip and wondered if he should tell someone what he saw. It was too late though as his parents ushered him into the big top. His legs shook as he climbed the ladder up to the platform, following his mother with his father close behind.
"Now for the act you've all been waiting for...Haly's Circus is proud to be home to the Flying Graysons!" As the last syllables echoed through the tent the lights all went down except for a spotlight trained on the three bodies soaring through the air above the heads of the people below.

It was times like this were Richard felt truly alive, when he was flying. He didn't even have to think as his body when through the motions and he performed his signature move of a quadruple somersault alongside his parent's triple.
"You've seen it here folks! The quadruple somersault performed by our very own Richard Grayson!" Haly shouted from somewhere below as he landed on the platform. They had practiced this hundreds of times before so Richard knew that he had only moments before he would have to grab his mother's hands and be flipped to his father's, but he never got the chance. Just as he was about to grab her outstretched hands they both heard a snap. What happened next seemed to move in slow motion.

Richard watched helplessly as his parents ropes snapped and they fell to the packed earth ground, the sickening sounds on their bones snapping reaching his ears as he watched, screaming for his mom and dad.
"No! Mamă! Tată!" The crowd was shrieking along with him while crew members tried unsuccessfully to clear the area. Richard practically threw himself down the ladder and next to his parents bodies.
"No, wake up!" He shook his father's shoulder as tears rolled down his cheeks.
"Richard! Get back you oafs! Give the kid some room!" Haly elbowed a reporter out of his way in an effort to reach the kid but was soon overwhelmed by the number of cameramen, reporters, and other press members.

Bruce was getting ready for his date with Vicki vale when he was done he headed down the stairs to the door he looked at the two sets of keys that where hanging up it was either the rolls Royce or the Lamborghini. Bruce pick the keys for the Lamborghini because he thought that it would be the better choice for tonight. "Alright that's every thing now Alfred I'll see you later don't wait up like you always do". Bruce looked up at the top of the stairs to see Alfred standing there Bruce looked up at the clock "OK I got to go Alfred you have fun run of the manner and I'll let you know if anything bad happens tonight okay". Alfred looked at Bruce "of course master Wayne as you wish just have fun on your date tonight" Alfred then disappeared up stairs and out of sight .Bruce smiled at his friend and opened the door to leave he walked up to his car and jumped in and started the engine of the car Bruce drove down the hill and towards Vicki's place.

Bruce arrived at Vicki's place in time he knocked on the door and waited for her to answer Vicki heard the door and walked up to and opened the door to see Bruce out side waiting for her "well I see you made it on time". Vicki looked back into her house "well shall we go" Vicki came out of her doorway an closed the door behind her. Bruce looked at Vicki when the door had opened he heard what she said "of course ladies first" Bruce escorted her to the car and helped her in he started the engine and drove in the direction of the restaurant. Bruce entered the restaurant with Vicki they were seated at one of the tables in the corner. they had both ordered when the waiter had left he turned to Vicki "you look lovely tonight and thanks for accepting my invitation for tonight I'm looking forward for the circus tonight". Vicki looked up at Bruce "I am to I heard about the flying Greysons are really good and that they are the main attraction of Haly's circus this performance will make the front page news Bruce so thanks for asking me out tonight". Bruce listened to what Vicki had said "no problem it was an honor". Bruce saw the waiter return with their meals and they started to eat once they had finished they decided not to get any desert and Bruce paid the bill for the meal without telling Vicki that he did .

Bruce escorted Vicki back out to the car and they drove off to the area where the circus was being held Bruce got out and helped Vicki out and they walked up to the entrance together. They went to the vendors they got some popcorn and drinks they then found their way to the seats after they gave the tickets to the person out front. Their were many acts each was better then the last they saw tight rope walkers, different acrobats, and weightlifters but they reminded him to much of bane but they were pretty good then they saw that the last act was going to come on. Bruce watched the act of the Flying Greysons Vicki was right they were the best every thing was going great until he saw the ropes let go and the kids parents fall. Bruce was shocked by this it temporally sent him back to that night his parents died in that alley way he didn't even notice Vicki take off towards the kid with her microphone out. she had apparently called are camera man to because he saw him come in with his camera on his shoulder Bruce had suddenly noticed Vicki's bag maybe she had given it to him to hold for her.

Vicki had made it down to the main ground and ran up towards the kid "this is Vicki vale reporting to you live at Haly's Circus were the most tragic thing has just happened to of the famous flying greysons have fallen and have either died or seriously injured". Vicki Vale was trying to get close to the kid when Haly had tried to shove her away "excuse me but this is front page news and I will be the first one to get this you got that" Vicki turned back to her camera man and continued to report the incident. Bruce broke free from his flashback and walked down towards Viki he pulled out his phone and dialed the number of Jim Gordon he heard him pick up the phone "okay Jim I need you down here at Haly's Circus there's been an indecent and I need your help to keep all the reporters back you got that". Jim was half asleep when he answered the phone until he had heard what Bruce had said "okay I'll be right there I'll bring a Squad with me to help I'll see you there" Jim and Bruce both hung up the phone at the same time. Bruce walked up to Vicki and pulled her aside Vicki "can't you just give the kid some space he just witnessed his parents die and he doesn't want reporters in his face please Vicki". Vicki looked at Bruce "well when you put it that way I'll try but I am a reporter after all okay" Bruce looked up at Vicki "thank you that's all I ask".


Bruce made his way towards Haly he stood beside him and looked around for the kid he turned to Haly where is he Bruce thought to himself he heard the sirens of the approaching police cars "good he's here". Bruce saw Jim arrive with his squadron of cops they pushed back the reporters Bruce looked around the area "we need to find the kid do you know his name I'll help find him because I know what he's going through by the way my name is Bruce Wayne". Bruce held out his hand toward Haly to show he was here to help him.

The noise from the people all around him was overwhelming, but fell on deaf ears. Richard couldn't tear his eyes from his parents life-less forms. He was jolted when a woman approached with a camera man, were they seriously filming this? Richard stood on shaking legs, trying to find a way out of the crowd as it pressed in on all sides. He turned every which way but was always met with the shine from a camera, or the smiling face of a reporter trying to get him to talk. Richard could feel the tears streaming down his cheeks and his heart pounding in his ears, he had to get out. Brushing the tears away with his arm he ducked past one man, dodging around others until he was clear.

Haly was fighting people off left, right, and center.
"I won't have you reporter types getting in his face, now back off!" The man shoved one reporter forcefully back, resulting in a few choice words and a lot of stumbling people. But just as Haly turned, a new wave was there to greet him. Giving a frustrated huff the circus owner pushed his way through the people to try to reach Richard; the kid would need some protection right now. When Haly got through he could see Richard anywhere. Worry was beginning to take over when the sound of police sirens pierced the air and the crowd soon thinned. Haly knelt beside the bodies of Mary and John Grayson, his star performers and a family he considered his own. It was then that Haly noticed the man standing beside him and stood dusting his knees off. He took the offered hand.
"Thank you mister Wayne, I just hope he hasn't gotten too far." Haly glanced around them once more as though he expected the kid to just appear out of nowhere. "His name is Richard, the rest of the performers will help you look, as will the crew." Haly nodded as one of his crew members gathered a few others and began searching the grounds.

Richard had run blindly, tears blurring his vision. When he did come to his senses he found himself in the elephants tent. It was quiet in here with just the sounds of the animals shuffling in the hay and the faint breaths of the gentle beasts. Richard dashed to the end of the line where he knew Zitka was kept, he made it to her before collapsing in the hay next to her.
"Oh Zitka, they're...gone." The word caught in his throat and was soon followed by sobs that shook his small frame. The animal sensing the child's distress wrapped her truck around his shoulders as he leaned against her leg. He could vaguely here people calling his name but he couldn't bring himself to leave the warmth of Zitka's embrace and so he let his head fall forward where it rested against the grey flesh, soothing him to sleep.

Bruce listened to Haly thank you I will help the best I can Bruce walked away towards Jim Gordon Bruce was thinking about where Richard could have gone "Jim will you help find the kid his name is Richard and we can use all the help we can get" Bruce saw Jim agree to this so Bruce walked out of the tent and looked around the area he saw another buildings and trailers he took this as an opportunity to explore the area. He saw a tent in the distance and decided to check there when he came closer he read the sign that said elephant tent Bruce liked many animals but he had never seen an elephant in real life before Bruce entered the tent he saw all the different elephants he was also looking for Richard. Bruce was about to leave the tent when he saw something in the corner of his eye he looked again to see a child at the feet at one of the elephants Bruce looked up at the elephant to see that she was protecting him Bruce didn't want to get in between an angry elephant and her protecting Richard. Bruce looked around to see if any of the other staff where around when he saw that there were no staff near Bruce came back in front of the elephant that had Richard he had tried to get closer to Richard but the elephant get making him get back. Bruce went across the room in front of the pen he sat down and tried to think of a plan to get the boy away from the elephant. He decide to show that he was not going to harm her or the boy so he watched the boy and the elephant he decided to call Jim Bruce pulled out his phone and called Jim. "Hey Jim I found him can you find Haly and come to the elephant tent because Richard is here and he is being protected by an elephant and it wont let me near him" Bruce listened for a while.

Jim picked up his phone when he heard it ring he listened to what Bruce had said "yes I'll find him and good work Bruce ". Jim went off to find Haly when he did he told Haly what Bruce had told him after that Haly and Jim headed towards the Elephant tent in search of Richard.

Richard could faintly hear the sounds of footsteps as he slept curled up next to the elephant he had known all his short life. Snuggling closer, he continued to sleep unaware of the search going on for him. Zitka however was keeping a close eye on this man, not letting him anywhere near this precious child.

Haly was searching around the trailers when he heard someone calling his name. He recognized the man as the police commissioner who had spoken with Mr. Wayne when this all started. He met Gordon and listened to what he had to say.
"Oh course! He loves the elephants, why didn't I think of that?" Haly led the way across the grounds to the tent where the creatures were kept. Walking in, his eyes fell on the sight before him and he almost couldn't go further. He moved to where Bruce sat and crouched next to him.
"I'll get him." Haly watched Zitka for a few moments before standing once more and slowly moving forward with his hands in front of him. He knew this elephant well, but he also knew that she could become very protective.
"There, there girl. I'm just going to take little Dickie to bed, alright?" Haly spoke to the beast, letting a hand slide down her trunk and patting her side. Haly knelt in the straw and scooped up the child in his arms, holding him close.

Richard began to stir when he felt himself being moved. Rubbing his eyes with a small fist, he looked up at Haly.
"Haly...wha...what's going on?" Haly smiled sadly down at the child.
"Go back to sleep little one. We'll figure this out." Richard nodded, and let his eyes flutter closed once more. Haly sighed and carried him to his own trailer where already the commissioner was waiting with a few other officers.
"Haly we need to discuss what will happen now. He has no other living family." Gordon tried to reason with the man who only scowled and walked past into the trailer.

He placed Richard in his own bed and tucked the covers around him before closing the door and rubbing his face with his hand.
"I told you, we are his family. You're not taking him from the only thing he's ever known." He spoke crossly to the police.
"I know you're upset, but we have to do what is best for the kid."
"You don't know what's best for him!" Haly's anger was flaring and Gordon knew this.
"I'm sorry Mr. Haly but I'm going to have to take him in to the station until we can get him placed somewhere." He nodded to one of the other officers who restrained the circus owner while he moved into the trailer to take Richard.
"You can't do this!" Haly struggled against the man holding him, shouting at the commissioner as he walked away. This woke Richard who instinctively struggled himself.
"Let me go! Haly!" Gordon held on tight until he got to the cruiser and had managed to place the child in. Richard pounded a fist against the window and cried for Haly, anyone to help him. Gordon nodded sadly to Bruce before getting in and pulling away.

When the police had left and Haly had been released he fell to his knees and sobbed into his hands.
"I promised them that if anything happened I would look after him." He muttered to himself. When he noticed that Bruce Wayne was still there he surged to his feet and thrust a finger at the billionaire.
"This is your fault! You called them here, they took him away from me, from all of us." As suddenly as the anger had came it vanished, leaving a crying man who could hardly stand on his own feet.

Bruce looked over to see Haly point toward him and yell at him that it was his fault Bruce looked down at Haly "I'm sorry Haly but I called him to help he was just doing his job following the law we could do nothing about it would you rather it be you in that cruiser or would you like to help Richard by getting him away from here." Bruce watched Haly for a while he saw that he was emotionally unstable Bruce came closer to Haly and keeled down to him "I'm sorry for how you feel Haly but we have to do what is best for him which is to get him to safety and Jim will do the best he can to help Richard." Bruce stood up and walked away from Haly to call Alfred "Hey Alfred I'm going to be late coming home there was an accident down here so I'm going to go and talk to Gordon later tonight " Bruce heard Alfred's response. Haly heard what Bruce had to say Haly surged to his feet he turned toward Bruce he stood beside him as he watched Bruce talk on the phone when Bruce was done on the phone a looked down at him he hit Bruce in the face. Bruce turned back to face Haly he looked down to see Haly beside him Bruce turned to speak to Haly but instead Haly had punched Bruce in the face the reporters had grown quiet when that happened. Bruce was on the ground he pulled his had away from his face to see that he was bleeding "Haly you really do pack a punch but I'm not fighting you". Most of the reporters came over to see if he was okay the police that were still hanging around tackled Haly to the ground and had handcuffed him. Vicki Vale came over to help Bruce up "hey are you okay Bruce maybe we should go" Vicki waved to her camera man to follow alright "I'll drive back to my place so you can sit in the passenger seat and relax". Vicki helped Bruce to the car and then opened the door for him to get in Vicki told her camera man to go back to the studio to edit the footage for the show tomorrow. Vicki climbed into the driver side and started to drive away from the circus and back to her place.

Gordon had had to recruit two other officers to help him get Richard into the station as the kid had tried to take off on them at every opportunity. Finally with him in one of the offices Gordon had a moment to catch his breath before trying to figure out what to do next.
"Linda, can you get me a list of all the orphanages in the area?" Gordon asked the secretary as he made his way to his own office. From what one of the detectives had discovered, the kid had no living relatives.

Richard sat in the office of one of the officers, the door had been locked behind him. Sniffling as tears rolled down his cheeks he couldn't help but replay the scene from earlier that night in his head over and over. He immediately blamed himself, if he had told someone about what he had seen before the show none of this would have happened. He was lost in his memory and didn't hear the door open, nor did he see the secretary kneel before him. It was until he felt a hand on his shoulder that he snapped back to reality. The man who had taken him from the circus, Gordon, was telling him something.
"Richard, I know this is hard to take in but you've got to understand that it's for the best." The man held his hand and was leading him back the way they had come. Was he bringing him home? No. The thought vanished as soon as they exited the station and Richard was ushered into the car of two unknown strangers once more. The woman in the passenger's seat turned to face him.
"Don't worry sweetie. It's not all bad." She patted his knee before turning to face the front once more. Richard's gazer flew from their faces to the window where Gordon was standing with his hands behind his back and his head down. He hadn't wanted to send the kid to the detention center but no where else was willing to accept him, he just had to remind himself that this was for the best.

Bruce was in the passenger seat of his own car he watched Vicky drive for a while but this night had reminded himself so much of the night he had lost his parents Bruce was thinking about the kid all the way back to Vicky's place. when they arrived Bruce turned to "Vicky hey do you mind if I come in for a bit to get cleaned up before I head home because you probably know how Alfred is if I come home looking like this and I never got to thank you for this date". Bruce listened to what Vicky had to say he followed Vicky into her house Vicky directed him up the stairs to the bathroom Bruce was in the bathroom cleaning off the blood from when he was hit by Haly. Bruce also took this time to call Jim Gordon Bruce was talking with Jim when he heard one of the officers come in to Jim's office and tell him something Bruce listened and he heard that the officer said that the kid had run away Bruce talked to Jim for a bit longer until Jim had said that he had to go find the kid. Bruce hung up the phone Bruce knew how dangerous the streets of Gotham were Bruce left the bathroom and headed down the stairs okay Vicky I'm heading out and before I forget thanks for the date Bruce headed out the door and back to his car Bruce sat in the drivers side and started the long drive home.

Vicky was in the drivers seat of Bruce's car she was more focused on getting home then the story right now when they arrived at her place she heard what Bruce had to say yes you may it is the least I can do for you after you have done so much for me. Vicky lead Bruce out of the car and into her place she showed him the direction to the bathroom. Vicky was wondering if Bruce was going to be alright.

He didn't know why he had done it. One minute he was being led from the car by the woman, the next he was racing down an alley, the sound of footsteps and shouting behind him. To be honest he was panicking; he didn't know where he was or even where he was going. All he knew was that he needed to get away from there. Richard scaled a fence, separating him from the people who had followed him this far. He jumped to the ground, miscalculating his landing and felt his ankle twist at an odd angle. Letting loose a cry of pain, the child stumbled and fell, feeling the water from the alley seep into his clothing -- his performing outfit and a slim jacket he had been given. Pulling himself to his feet, he glanced around him and chose a direction at random.

Minutes passed but felt like hours to the small child running the streets of Gotham. He finally stopped and leaned against a building trying to catch his breath. Shivering he struggled to think straight but the events from earlier that night wouldn't leave him alone. With a defeated sign, Richard slid to the ground, ignoring the damp ground and the cold rain that had started. He pulled his jacket tighter, hugging himself and felt tears running down his face. How could things have gone so wrong in only a few short hours?

Unknown to the child, a street over a major heist was going down between one of the major crime lords of Gotham. Black Mask had ordered for a large shipment of guns to be imported into the city that night, using the opening night of the circus as cover. His men were unloading the truck and packing the warehouse while he watched, keeping an eye out for the bat and anyone else who may get in the way.
"You two, perimeter check, now!" Two of his men who had been slacking immediately hefted their own guns and jogged off in opposite directions to check the area. You never knew when the pigs would be out, or even just someone snooping around.

Bruce had started the drive home when he got to the manor he had noticed he was going about 150 miles per hour all the way back Bruce hurried inside he walked into the main area of the manor Bruce took of the jacket of his suit off and threw it on the coat rack Bruce made his way into his study pulling one of the book on the shelf which revealed one of the many secret entrances to the bat cave Bruce had to find Richard before anything or anyone else did but he also had to stop the heist that Black mask was a part of. Bruce rode down the elevator down to the bat cave he got off the elevator and walked toward the bat computer he typed something into and watch the platform that held the Bat tumbler on it rise up into view Bruce walked over to an area where he had the bat suit He quickly put it on and was ready to head out when he heard the elevator come down Bruce looked over to see that Alfred had come down "Master Wayne my I ask where are you going this late in the night" Alfred looked Bruce up and down with his tray in one hand. Bruce looked over at Alfred I'm heading out to stop Black mask's heist why else Bruce was busy clipping on his utility belt to head out Alfred I just going out for now I have to be the bat sometime so I'll be late coming in Bruce walked toward the Bat tumbler. Alfred followed Bruce close behind yes I know by now you never come home early just do what you have to do master Wayne Alfred walked away and took his place at the bat computer. Bruce watched Alfred Yes I know Alfred I will be back Bruce jumped into the tumbler the platform turned around and set in place for the vehicle to exit the bat cave.


----------------------

Bruce raced through the streets of Gotham to get to where the heist was taking place Bruce stopped the bat tumbler a block away he jumped out and used the grapple gun on his belt to get on top of a building he was near. Bruce was on the roof of a building near the heist area he watched what was going on when all of the sudden he noticed to of Black mask's men where sent away which was probably for a perimeter check. Bruce however was more focused on Black mask he continued to watch him for now because he did not want to give his position away to the thugs on the ground.

Black Mask's were about ready to turn back and finish up the heist when they heard something among the sounds of Gotham.
"Did'ja hear that Frank?" The larger of the two asked, pointing his gun in the direction.
"I didn't hear nuthin'." His partner muttered, pushing Frank aside to investigate this 'sound'. "You think ya hear something all the time. What'd ya think? The Bat's just gonna be 'round every damn corner?" Laughing, Frank pulled his own gun out and pointed it ahead of him, the fear of Gotham's Bat getting to him. Rounding the corner Frank didn't see a thing in the low light.
"See, I told'ja. There's nothin 'ere -- eh? What's this?" Frank stopped, nudging what looked like a child with his boot.
Richard stirred, having fallen into a light sleep.
"Git over 'ere! Some kid's gone and gotten 'imself lost." A grin spread on the man's face as he bent down to grab the kid by the collar. Richard felt this and jolted fully awake, trying to pull away from the man.
"Let me go!" He struggled against the hands that held him, hoisting him above the ground.
"Must be one of 'em circus folk." The second man stated noticing Richard's uniform.
"Don't make no difference, the boss'll be none too pleased." Laughing, the two men carried the child back to Black Mask.
"Eh boss! We found this one down the street there." Joseph held the squirming child out. Black Mask turned to face them.
"Do you think i care about each and ever little urchin on the streets?" He raised a hand to swat the man before him but was stopped when he heard the slamming of the back of the truck.
"Boss, we got to move! Them cops got word of what we're up to." Cursing, Black Mask called out orders to his men before turning back to the two in front of him.
"Throw him in the van." He then turned and got into another vehicle waiting for him.
"You 'eard 'im!" The man holding Richard jogged to one of the big vans getting ready to pull away and climbed in. Taking care that the kid wouldn't get away and blab to the cops he tied a piece of rope around his wrists, securing them behind his back.
"You might want to blindfold him too." One of the men in the van suggested, offering a scrap of cloth. Richard sniffed and pulled on the bindings, pulling away when the man went to do just that.
"Hold still you little brat!" A cuff to the head stopped Richard from moving again as his vision was covered. Not for the first time that night he wished he hadn't run, maybe than he would at least have been safer than he felt now.

---

Over the coms Alfred's voice could be heard.
"Master Bruce, care to explain why Miss Vale has phoned her to ask how you are?" Irritation was clear in the butler's voice. He had raised Bruce to be a gentlemen, even when his lifestyle didn't exactly fit the description. "What exactly is going on?" Alfred had already looked over the file for this heist and it wasn't anything Batman had handled before, if anything it was a minor job to complete; not exactly something to rush in and out of the cave in such a manner as he had seen not too long ago.

Bruce was on the roof of the building watching the heist when he heard Alfred's voice come over the com Bruce listened to what Alfred had to say well it had to do about the incident at the circus you can tell her I'm fine by the way. Bruce turned his attention back to the heist that was happening when he saw the two men come back Bruce looked to see what they had brought to black mask Bruce saw that it was Richard the kid that had ran away. Bruce stood up on the roof he pulled out one of his batarangs he placed a tracker on it and through it at the last truck to leave he hoped that they would not do anything to the kid Bruce jumped off the roof he was on to the back of the building to walked to his bat-tumbler and drove after the truck using the tracker he had put on it. "Alfred Black mask is on the move so I may have to go on radio silence" Bruce continued to race down the streets of Gotham after Black mask's men he still wanted to be sure that he would get Grayson before anything happened to him.

Richard couldn't tell where they were, even when the blindfold had been removed and he had been dragged into a small office. He was dumped in the corner, not to far from the desk of a young lady who was charged with watching him. She was nice enough but Richard just wanted to go home, back to the circus, back to the safety of his parents arms...but that was impossible. Huddled in on himself he could hear the men in the next room arguing, he couldn't make out what was said but there was a lot of shouting and frequently men would rush out of the room clutching their arms or faces.
"Don't worry hon, the boss man's just a little upset." The secretary said, as she noticed his reactions. Richard managed to nod before pulling his attention to the window that faced opposite him. He could see a dreary image of the city, tall buildings and rain. How did anyone live here? He pulled himself to his feet, wobbling a bit on his injured ankle, and moved towards the window. He peered out, not expecting to see anything in particular, but anything was better than the shouts and hollers coming from the office.

Suddenly the secretary was called in and Richard listened to the tap of her heels as she disappeared and soon reappeared. Her face grim as she approached him.
"Don't worry sweetheart." Her nails dug into his shoulder as she steered him towards the door. Struggling, Richard was led into the room where the man with the black mask stood facing a set of windows. He dismissed the secretary with a wave of his hand, waiting until the door closed before he turned on the kid.
"Who sent you? Hmm? What did you think you would find, kid?" Richard shrank away from the accusing finger but soon found his back against a wall. "I haven't got all night! So to make it easy I'll give you two choices; tell me what you were doing, or I'll have someone beat it out of you." Richard was shaking, he didn't know what this man was talking about -- he didn't know what he wanted. He could tell the man was getting irritated but he couldn't bring himself to answer.
"Suit yourself." Two men entered the room. "You know what to do, don't kill him but do whatever needs to be done to get what we need." The men grinned as one hoisted Richard over his shoulder and began walking out with him kicking and fighting to be loosened.

Richard was dropped rather roughly on the floor. He looked up at the two men, hoping they would go easy on him at least, he already hurt enough. He watched as one man raised a fist, intending to strike him and winced, waiting for the impact -- but it never came. Looking back he was shocked to see that both men had been knocked out and now lay on the ground before him.

It was then that he noticed a new presence in the room. Standing before him where once his attackers had stood was a man dressed in an armored outfit, cape, and cowl. He didn't say anything, just stood there, watching Richard. Instinctively Richard tried to move away but he back was already against a wall. If this man could take out two full grown men, what could he do to him? He pulled his knees up, and ducked his head down, holding his hands before him in a sign of surrender.

Bruce looked down at the kid he backed off because he knew that he was probably sacred already Bruce turned to his com "Agent A I have found the kid he was taken by Black masks men and brought to the steel mill to be beat up by his men if its okay with you I'll be bring him back with me". Bruce turned back to the kid he watched for a bit to make sure that he was not scaring the kid anymore then the men had he came a little bit closer assessing the best way to get close enough to him. Bruce came up beside the kid he saw that he was injured Bruce then went to pick up the kid he then pick the kid up and started to bring him to the door. Bruce then exited the building and walked to where he had parked the bat mobile the kid did not make it any better by struggling to get away from him. Bruce then place the kid in the passenger seat and fastened the seat belt when he got in the other side he then started the vehicle ans started to drive off in the direction of the bat cave he turned his head enough to see the kid watching the city go by as they drove on.

Richard was visibly shaking as the man watched him. Was he going to hurt him too? Pulling himself into a ball, the child tried his best to not upset the man. He remained where he was until he felt arms around him and the ground leave him. Crying out, Richard struggled against the man, kicking and punching the best he could while squirming in the grasp. Tears streamed down his face as he tried to get away; he was tired, hurt, and scared, now what was happening? his young mind jumped to every conclusion possible as he was strapped into some sort of vehicle. He stared with wide eyes as the man got into the drivers side. Moving his gaze to the window he watched as the city he had only known for a few hours raced by.

Fear soon found it's way back into his system and his fight against the man resumed. He kicked at the mans hands on the steering wheel, while he tried to figure out the belt that held him more or less in place. Through choking sobs he cried for the man to let him go, for his parents, for this all to end. Soon however, the pain and exhaustion took over and the child's protests grew weaker and weaker until he slumped in the seat and leaned against the window, as far from the man as he could get while one hand weakly fought against the seat belt with no hope of winning. The sobs continued until the slowly turned into whimpers and silent tears.

Batman was more focused on driving when the kid kicked at his hands he did not do anything else to frighten the child anymore then he was already even though it had little effect on him because of his Armour. Batman drove into the entrance of the batcave where he meet Alfred. So where is the little child that you have saved from Black mask". Batman lifted the kid out of the batmoblie and to the table where all of there medical supplies was Batman moved everything out of the way and placed the kid on it. Black mask was going to get some of his men to harm him for some reason". Alfred came over to the table to assess the injuries "and that reason is" Alfred said looking the kid over later finding his hurt ankle Alfred grabbed some supplies to tend to it. "Well that's just it Alfred I don't know why he would want to hurt the kid" Bruce was now at the Batcomputer with his cowl down looking over Black Mask's files. Alfred came over to Bruce's side at the computer "maybe he saw something that he did not want the kid to see." Bruce looked up at Alfred maybe Alfred but we won't know for sure just yet" Bruce looked back at the kid "Maybe we should inform Gordon in the morning that I found him and that he can pick him up later or I can drive him there in the morning". Alfred looked down at Bruce "yes that sounds like a good plan sir".
