Author’s Notes: Well, after Merfilly’s excellent workshop on drabbles, I was inspired to once again tackle this interesting art form. I decided to do the traditional, 100-word drabble, and this is what I got. Enjoy! :)
Batman dwelled in the shadows of his city, the cool air suggesting a hint of autumn. He scanned the streets below,
the pulse of the city throbbing in his blood. He breathed its air, musty and mildewed; heard its sounds of laughter
and gunfire; smelled its cheap booze and rich wines. He was Darkness, his heart stone as he melted into the barren loneliness.
A strong breeze caressed his face and he looked up, heart fluttering as the blue-clad figure drifted gently down from the stars, red cape billowing out behind him.
He was no longer Darkness.
No longer alone.
