‘Perfect. Fucking perfect.’
[Y/N] was going to be late. Thanks to her alarm. She knew that shit is going to broke sooner or later and she didn’t do anything about it.
She would’t even care but today was Monday and her first class on Monday was English.
She despised her English teacher. He was an asshole. Always making rude comments about her and the other girls.
‘[Y/L/N] why do you look so sad? Smile, kid! You look so pretty with that smile!’
‘[Y/LN] what’s with that stupid smile? You’re supposed to read something!’
He was so annoying.
[Y/N] realized she’s already late anyway, so why should she bother? She wanted to have a proper breakfast.
After doing her morning routine she grabbed a backpack, keys and left the apartment.
Ugh. It was snowing.
As she peacefully walked on the iced streets of Gotham, she checked the time and she couldn’t believe herself. This is what you get when you “shouldn’t bother”.
[Y/N] was going to be late. Again. To her second class.
So she did the only think she could think of.
When [Y/N]’s feet met the slippery bridge, she didn’t slow down. She knew it was very risky but she could’t be that late, she would be in trouble!
She thought she’s going to be just fine because she was already in the middle of the construction but oh boy, how naive she was.
Then she was running and now she wasn’t.
Her face was in the snow..
Yes, she slipped.
[Y/N] groaned and was about to start getting up but she heard a laugh.
Quite maniacal one.
It was a male, he sounded young. She didn’t want to see him, she was to ashamed to show him his face.
It was obvious that her fall looked hilarious but seriously, she could have hurt herself!
Now she was mad at this guy.
Still too embarrassed to get up though.
So poor [Y/N] laid there until she heard the person walking away still giggling a little.
‘Wow. What an asshole.’ She thought and finally stood up.
She arrived to school after her English class. She made it right on time.
At least she didn’t have to confront her teacher.
Classes passed by very quickly, thanks to [Y/N]’s five friends.
They were supposed to grab something to eat and go to the movies. [Y/N] loved cinema.
As the laughing pack left the building they heard an explosion and people screaming. Just around the corner.
“What was that?!”
“I don’t know, let’s check it out!”
‘Very fucking smart..’ Thought [Y/N] but didn’t say anything.
Now while walking in the direction of even louder screams she seriously wanted to say something. It really wasn’t a good idea to go there, now with everything happening with Jerome Valeska being alive and his cult–
–And the penny drops.
‘That laugh. It was him!’
When running people started to pass them by she stopped in her tracks.
“Okay guys, this is very stupid of us. We really shouldn–”
“My, my, what do we have here?” Somebody cut her off.
The group slowly turned around to meet Jerome Valeska, in the flesh, standing there and smiling madly at them.
‘Oh no…now we’re screwed’
As they stared at him, too afraid to run, a school bus pulled up.
Those lunatics. Those lunatics from his cult were in this bus.
[Y/N] could’t take a good look from her position but it seemed like all of them were ugly men with clown make up on their faces, holding weapons.
Jerome started to laugh darkly as he saw the fear in their eyes.
“Come on children, the bus is hereee! Now, get in or..” He targeted his gun at them.
Scared pack could only nod, expect [Y/N].
“Alrighty then…” She spoke, wanting to play it cool. She didn’t want to give him satisfaction of her shaking in fear.
All of her friends were already in the bus, probably sobbing and not knowing what to do.
[Y/N] really wanted to save her ass, so she started to think about the plan.
The moment she was about to step into the bus, passing Jerome, [Y/N] flirtatiously smiled at him, kinda praying he’s not gay. Her plan was to use her looks to save herself. She didn’t expect anything just yet, she didn’t even have a full plan, it was all so spontaneous.
When their eye contact broke she heard him say “C'mere, Angel.”
A little shocked [Y/N] skipped to him and gave him a small smile.
She felt him put an arm around her waist.
“We can’t let you fall and hurt yourself again, can we?”
Now she was sure it was him laughing at her earlier. Douchebag.
[Y/N] only nodded as she let him hold her waist and sensing him entering the bus right after her.
Then she felt somebody hitting her head with something hard and she fell straight on the bus floor knocked out.
“Rise and shine, Beautiful..” A hot breath on her ear was present as she started to wake up.
Her vision more clear now, so she could see she’s been lying on the hard floor, and noticed the Ginger hovering over her.
She whined because her head hurt like hell.
Jerome’s face softened as he caressed her cheek.
“I’m so sorry about it, Doll. That idiot who did that to you is already dead.”
He helped her to stand up and took her to another room of wherever they were.
What [Y/N] saw before her was absolutely terrible. Her friends tied to the chairs, crying in pain. Three psychos torturing them.
When they saw Jerome coming in, they left the room one by one, still laughing.
“Alrighty!” He shouted smiling widely at her almost lifeless friends and then turned to [Y/N].
“Listen [Y/N]..” She wasn’t even surprised he knew her name.
“When I saw you for the first time.. I knew you were just like me. Different. What I’m saying is, join me. You can be my queen of hearts. Well, more like of my heart. I know you feel the same about me, Doll Face.”
Okay, this is crazy. [Y/N] wanted to play with his mind and make him think that she likes him because she wants to be alive. Nothing wrong with that.. but she wasn’t prepared for something like this, for God’s sake. It’s not her fault nobody ever loved Jerome this way. Or at all.
What is he gonna do to her friends?!
“What about my friends?”
“Thought you’re not gonna ask! That’s the funny part, Darling!”
“You’re going to kill ‘em! Bang! You don’t need ‘em do you?! I’m everything you need!”
[Y/N] forgot how to speak English. She started to pray this is all a cruel joke or better - a nightmare.
“Are you crazy?! I’m not doing this!”
“Yes. You. Are.” She could tell he was angry.
He pushed a gun into her hands.
“You’re doing this, Lovely. Now.”
She targeted the gun at them, shaking like mad. She didn’t want to do this.
“Pull the trigger.” He hissed.
Too many emotions. [Y/N] was so nervous she started to sob, look on her friend’s faces not helping at all. Hopeless like they were expecting her to do it..
Now Jerome was seriously annoyed and bored.
“Guess I have to kill all of you now…”
He shot her friends in the head and dropped the gun. He took out his knife and just as he was about to hop in her way–
–There was a shot “GCPD! You’re surrounded!”
And then she realized. She didn’t even flinch. She still had a gun pointed at their direction. She was too shocked to do anything.
This is so stupid.
“Amazing job, Honey!”
He did it on purpose.
One month later, Arkham Asylum
‘’[Y/N]! How is my favourite inmate doing?” said Jerome, squeezing her hard.
She pushed him off and didn’t say anything.
“Awww, c’mon Baby, you can’t possibly be still mad at me? I did it for our love!”
Great. Now she was stuck with him in this crazy place.
At least they had their love.. Right?
