4 Days Later........
The Riddler was sat in his study opposite him, sat cross legged in a schoolgirl outfit was Barbara. She was wearing a white blouse, black cardigan, short tartan skirt, black knee highs and black mary janes. Her make-up
was perfect. The Riddler approached Barbara and removed a set of goggles and earbuds. He placed them in his drawer and picked up a pen and notepad. He leaned on his desk. “Tell me about yourself prior to meeting me” asked the Riddler.
“I grew up on the streets” she began in a monotone voice “Mom was a whore, don't know who my Dad is. Some trick of my Mom's. She tried to raise me as best she could, but I was always a trouble maker. I got into boys
and blow, started turning tricks myself, using my body to get what I needed.”
“And what happened to your Mother?”
“Some hood had a thing for her. I use to wait for her when she was with him. She was always kinda nervous. Turns out the hood was actually a lieutenant on the Falconi crew, anyway one night I'm in the car and she
goes into his apartment. Few minutes later the place explodes. I get outta the car and I see that bastard Robin swinging away from the building. He took out a mobster sure, but he killed my Mom .”
“What did you do?”
“I swore revenge. Started getting into fights, hanging around with gangs, hoping I'd see Robin again. But I started getting bored. Started going out on my own, robbing stores, working my way up to a bank. Then.....then
I met you”
“You took me under your wing, saw potential in me. Trained me to use my mind as well as my body. To see the bigger game whilst claiming my own piece. Gave me purpose, adopted me”
“And your name”
“Also known as “
The Riddler chuckled. “Excelent. Now then Enigma, to your left is a room with your new costume. When I click my fingers, you will awaken from trance and go change. Do you understand?”
He clicked and Eleanor skipped towards the Riddler, pecking him on the cheek, “I'll be right back” she exclaimed before winking and running to the nearby room. The Riddler straightened his tie and pulled on his long
green overcoat, grabbing his cane, he spun around as Eleanor bounded out of the room.
She was wearing a short green mini dress emblazoned in question marks. Black and purple hooped opaque stockings went up to the base of the dress. On her feet were green heeled ankle boots. A black utility belt hung
on her hips, fingerless purple and black gloves reached up to her shoulders. Her fingernails were alternately green and black. Her make-up was sultry, dark eyes and blood red lip. She wore a green domino mask and her long red hair was tied in pigtails. She
placed her hands on her hips.
“Very practical” chuckled the Riddler. Now we have business to attend. Come along Ellie.” He held his hand to hers. “Coming Daddy!” she laughed......
