    Blind as a Bat: Prolauge

    I was injected with an unknown substance and thrown out into the cold. I was 5 years old and living in Gotham. I walked through the town to the police station. I opened the door and stepped in. I sat in a chair until someone approched me. "Hello what do you need?" A voice asked "I need to talk with Gorden." I told him and waited for Gorden to come over to me. "Come to my office Sophia" he told me taking my hand and leading me to his office. "What do you need?" He asked "It happened again sir but this time i got a picture." I told him handing him my moms iPhone. "I need to keep this." He told me and i nodded. A man came in "Gorden we got a call" he said. Gorden nodded "Sophia stay here ok." Gorden told me and i nodded. Gorden left and came back with a young boy. That was 16 years ago and I am coming home to Gotham.
