13. Jess's Final Entry

My head is bleeding.

Jess was too drained to really realize anything but that. She felt the cold air on the back of her her head, and she felt the major headache that usually came with a concussion or something of the sort.

What happened?

She wanted to ask this question, but she could not force her jaw to move. Everything hurt. But, strangely enough, there was no feeling in her legs at all . . . even though she had not gotten hit below her waist.

After a little while, she realized that she was being carried. Whoever was carrying her was making at least a little bit of effort to keep her head stable. It wasn't really doing much for her, though.

With a slight groan, Jess forced her eyes open and saw a face that she had never seen in person, but recognized all the same.

There was the pale skin. The wide smile. The green hair.

Dad...?

The black took over once again.

*****

Jess was paralyzed by the blow to her head. She had no movement, and only after years of physical therapy was she able to even stand again.

She had a twin sister. Jessica. It didn't take very long for the twins to become close.

As for Kaos . . . well . . . a body was never found, but not even Jessica's boss - none other than the Bat himself - doubted that anyone could survive a fall like that one. Of course, it could just be wishful thinking that he really was dead.

It seemed like all was well.

But Jess still dreaded sleep every night. She dreaded entering her bedroom and swinging her useless legs onto the bed at midnight every night, and she hated having to rest and recharge. She knew that there was no one left to save her from the nightmares that plagued every second she spent asleep . . .
