Gotham Lockdown 2020
Summary: There is a virus sweeping the planet. Things are gettinf shut down. When you get work that Gotham is next to get locked down…you are concerned about Roman who is over seas…and what will come of you and Victor manning the Black Mask Club and the rest of the building.
Note: I was originally going to a bunch of bullets for what would happen….but I started writing and couldn’t stop. So this will be a new story line. This will be the particular reader (from Creative Fervor) I plan on having them in a lock down for about 10 months. (I really hope it doesn’t last that long in real life.) Victor will be have a stronger role in this story. Continue to use your imagination with READER...I will find pics that I think will work for the collage/portion of the story…I like I see sort of sitting like this.) And of course….enjoy!
You had been switching around on the tv waiting for Mayor Garcia to come with his big announcement. “Good afternoon, my fellow Gothamites.”
“Zsasz, get over here. He’s about to start.”
He came over from looking out the big picture window. He leaned against the back of the sofa. You stayed in your favorite corner of the sofa and turned up the volume.
“As you know there is a virus, a silent and invisible enemy attacking our globe.”
You glanced over at Zsasz who looked more grim then usual. That did not help your mood. It was bad enough that Roman was still in Italy. He was supposed to get back in two weeks.
“This silent enemy has been striking indiscriminately. With the cases on a sharp increase here and our sister city of Metropolis. It is with a heavy heart that as Friday, will be in a city…actually a tri-state lockdown.”
“Oh my god Zsasz.” Fear gripped your heart.
He made a gesture to quiet you, then his face softened. “It will be ok.” He grimaced and looked back at the tv.
“Anyone, caught outside will be arrested. With the help of Bruce Wayne funding the majority of our aid for hospitals and necessary supplies that we know we will need. We also have set up a facility, for the violators of this lockdown.” He took a deep breath. “We are in this together. Be reasonable these next fellow days and take into consideration, your fellow Gothamites.”
“Fuck that. Little bird get some shoes on. We’re grabbing some extra supplies.”
Going to the bedroom, you slipped out of the shorts you were wearing then pulled on some jeans when your phone buzzed to life.
“Roman!” You happily answered.
“Baby! We just got the word about Gotham.” You cradled the phone on your shoulder as put on some boots. “Now listen, Antonio, is lending me his private jet to get me to Frankfurt. From there I managed to secure a flight to Boston. From there I will fly into Thomas Wayne International.” You could see him rolling bis eyes when he said the name of the airport. “I will get there by Thursday night.”
“Oh, thank god.” Exhaling, you sat down as relief washed over you.
His voice brighten, you could see the huge grin. “Now, be a good girl and put Zsasz on the phone for me.”
“Here! He has good news!” You handed Victor the phone.
Going back you slipped on one of oversized sweaters. Grabbing your purse, you went over to where Zsasz talked to Roman. “Yes, boss the shipments came this morning. I have already locked and secured the shipments.” He chuckled. “Yeah good thing those arrived by.”
“I’m ready.” You whispered. He nodded and then pushed the button for the elevator to take them to the ground floor. “I dismissed the staff.” He looked at you. “I am taking her to the store right now for items, that we well…just don’t have here. When we get back I will make sure everything is locked and secured. See you, Thursday night boss.” He then handed you the phone.
“Baby, now you listen to Zsasz and help where you can. I will call you when I get to Frankfurt.”
“Ok, I will.” You pressed your lips together.
“….yeah..yeah…thank you again Antonio.” You heard him say, away from the phone. “Baby,” he said again in a softer voice.
“Love you, Baby.
“Love you, too.” Your heart flew! He had said it in different ways and did things that showed that he did. But was never really one for the words. Now you knew that he did..he really did. Happy tears filled your eyes.
You could hear the smile on his voice still. “Now baby you also gotta be brave till I get there alright?”
You nodded, swallowing the happy tears. “I will. I promise.”
You followed Victor to the car, getting in he started the car. And for once you got in the front seat with him.
“Spectacular, now go get those essentials items and I will talk to you soon.”
“I will!” You said brightly. “Talk to you soon.”
Victor, gave you a look then he shrugged as you came and sat in the front.
“Look, we have stuff to do.” You said bravely. “Even though you are driving, you are not my driver at the moment.”
He actually, smiled. “Alright, let’s go.”
