Growing Up Crazy: A Batman Fanfiction {Book V in the Kids of Gotham Series}

It ain't easy being the kid of a crazy person, and nobody can tell you why better than the kids of Gotham. {Batman X Catwoman, Joker X Harley, Poison Ivy X Two Face, Baby Doll X Killer Croc, OCs. Rated Y for mild language and violence, mainly in later chapters as the children get older. Some Superman (Lois X Clark/Superman, Lex Luthor X Mercy) incorporated}


12. Chapter Eleven - Lacey

"So, your initiation is next month, huh?"

A friend of Lacey's - Phoebe Evergreen - stuck her head in the sewer. She'd never actually come in, but the friends had a way of communicating through the manhole until Lacey tied on her stilt and came up.

(A/N: Phoebe is not related in any way to any of the canon Gotham residents.)

"Yeah. It was supposed to be in August, but something came up." Lacey replied, tying the stilt on her leg. It was uncomfortable, but she'd learned long ago to live with it. "You're not gonna abandon me after I rob whatever I'm supposed to, are you?"

Lacey didn't need to see the rolling of Phoebe's hazel eyes that followed. "Of course not. I actually think it's pretty cool."

Lacey looked up at her friend with wide eyes, stunned. Phoebe laughed at her expression. "Lala, you look like a deer stuck in headlights." she teased. "Come on, you gonna put on the stilt or not? My dad finally let me out without any supervision and we're going to see a movie."

Phoebe's father was fabulously wealthy, and her mother had abandoned them when she was a toddler. As a result, Phoebe's dad was crazy overprotective.

"Really? He actually let you out, knowing full well you're friends with one of the Kids of Gotham?"

"Yeah, he left a note and a wad of money telling me to do whatever I please. Kinda out of character for him, but hey, I can't complain."

Lacey had met Phoebe's father before, and this was very odd indeed. "I guess. But if it happens again tomorrow, we should organize a search party or something."

"Works for me."
