You're my everything

It's hard to believe that a duo could have known each other for so long and still be together. Of course, it's not in the way Juno wants. Jervis was her everything..and she's determined to become his.

13. Chapter 13

  Only a couple hours had passed when I received the call from Julia, Lee was missing as well. Apparently, Julia had went looking for her after she drove me back home, wanting to discuss something about birth control for her; I was still a little foggy on the details. I suppose it didn’t matter anymore, Jervis is playing with the lives of the innocent and I had to stop it. I couldn’t stand the thought of him being arrested.

  As I got up, all I could do was sigh. I couldn’t say I was surprised, I knew he would pull something of the sort… but I was still so disappointed. As I climbed into my car I questioned why I was doing this. It was quite obvious that he didn’t care about me… so what was the point? I wasn’t sure where to start looking for him, but I figured someone else would know. Someone I should’ve refrained from talking to the moment I left her nightclub, but it wasn’t like I had a choice.

  The sign for The Sirens came into sight. Like our first night in Gotham, I felt relieved. I needed answers, I was worried about him. I knew that I shouldn’t be, I knew that I should have moved on with my life and raised our child on my own, avoiding any and all contact with their father in an attempt to give them a normal life. But I couldn’t.

  “Tabitha?” I called out. There was no answer. Of course, I was reluctant to mention Barbara, but I knew I had to.

  “Barbara?” As if on cue, she walked out of a door. Her hair was combed back and out of her face and she wore a short, purple and light blue dress with a floral pattern. She made her way to the bar, giving a confused look before realizing who I was.

  “Hey… don’t I know you?” I nodded quickly, rushing over to where she stood by the bar.

  “Yes. And you know the person I’m looking for.” I told her, she looked around briefly, a smirk plastered on her face. She leaned back slightly, it seemed as if she knew more than she should have. I felt the mistrust once more.

  “I know a lot of people… doesn’t mean I’m gonna know where they are.” She said cockily. I grounded my anger and closed my eyes, taking a deep breath to calm myself.

  “Do you know where Jervis is?” I asked almost desperately. There was a suspenseful silence that filled the room, only clanking from the kitchens could be heard as I waited for her answer. Nervously, I opened one eye to see her staring at me confusedly.

  “I thought you went everywhere with him.” She commented genuinely. I sat next to her, rubbing my eyes with both hands, feeling the stress overcome me. I didn’t bother to look up when I answered.

  “We had a fight. He’s gonna do something stupid if I don’t stop him, I have to find him.” My voice cracked on the last few words and I was on the brink of tears. She sighed, rubbing my back in a soothing manner. As I finally burst into tears, she cooed a soft ‘shh.’ I let all my nervousness and stress out in my palms as I cried. I cried harder than I had in a few weeks, so I knew that I needed a drink soon.

  “Honey, it’s not the end of the world. I’m sure you’ll find him.” She reassured me. I looked at her with puffy eyes and a small smile. Maybe I was wrong about her, she didn’t seem as bad now that we were alone.

  “You really think so?” I asked. She nodded.

  “So, what is it that he’s going to do, exactly?” She inquired. I shrugged. Even I had no clue what he was going to do, and it made me feel worse.

  “I have no clue. All that I know is that he’s gonna drag people who don’t have anything to do with what happened into this.” I told her. She arched an eyebrow and stared curiously.

  “What happened?” She asked, pouring herself a cocktail in the process.

  “We found his sister. We had to kidnap her, take her from the GCPD. Honestly, I don’t think I wanted to be a part of that but I felt like I didn’t have a choice. He had a whole tea party set up for her. Got her a new dress…” I stopped. I was going to leave out the whole Alice in Wonderland theme he had to everything. And the creepy incest undertones that night held.

  “It didn’t last long. She… she didn’t like Jervis. She hated him. So she tried to get away. It resulted in her death.” I explained further. Barbara took a sip out of her drink, her eyes never leaving my face.

  “Jim was there.” I told her. She placed her glass down, a wicked look on her face.

  “I thought you’d like to know.” I continued. She smiled.

  “You’re right.” She said, putting her hands up in the air.

  “He was here the other day. I thought something went wrong between you two when you weren’t there. I knew better than to ask, though.” She told me as she picked her drink up once more, taking another small sip from the rounded glass. I furrowed my eyebrows, processing her every word. My mind was full of mixed thoughts, things like ‘why would he come here’ and ‘I should’ve known better than to trust her.’ I shoved all of the jealous thoughts aside and returned to the task at hand.

  “Why was he here?” I inquired.

  “He was asking about Jim. It makes more sense now that you mention what happened.” I perked up, finally. Finally, I had something to go off of.

  “What was he asking about?” I probed in an urgent tone.

  “Everything. But he seemed really interested about his love life.” She made a face and I sighed, rubbing the bridge of my nose in frustration.

  “Barbara, I really wish I could explain that to you but I’m afraid I won’t have the time. He isn’t in love with Jim, so don’t worry. He wants to hurt him.” I told her. She laughed loudly.

  “I know that. He knew about Vale, but I told him about Jim and I, then Lee-”

 “You told him about Lee?” I stood quickly and asked this in a tone a bit louder than it was before. She nodded, smiling up at me.

  “Yeah, why?” She inquired in a snippy tone. I looked around, feeling the heat beating down on me as I rapidly became engulfed by my embarrassment.

  “It’s a long story.” I told her while looking away. She stood as well.

  “I have time. I don’t have to open for a few more hours.” She said. I shook my head.

  “But I don’t.” I said as I turned toward the door. As my hand touched the door knob, I stopped. I thought about this; my situation. If I told her, she could help. My shoulders slouched as I turned around, walking back to the bar and setting myself next to her.

  “Barbara, you have to promise to keep this a secret.” I uttered. She nodded, leaning in as if we were school girls revealing our crushes. I really didn’t want to tell her, but I had no choice. She could help.

  “I found out earlier today… that I was…” I stopped once again, attempting to regain my composure.

  “That I’m going to be a mom… and Lee was my doctor. She’s gonna be doing my check ups and stuff like that.” I glanced at Barbara’s shocked face. Next thing I knew, I was wrapped in her arms.

  “Congratulations.” She said happily. I gulped as she pulled away from me.

  “If you need any help, and I mean help with anything, just come to us.” She told me. I nodded, smiling back at her.

  “Thank you.” I thanked. As I walked to the door, I remembered the purpose of my trip.

  “You don’t know where he is, do you?” I asked, turning my head to see her reaction.

  “I’m sorry, sweetie. If I did I would’ve told you by now.” She reassured me. I nodded and ventured off into Gotham to find my beloved and stop him before it was too late.
