Near Virtual Death

The most interesting thing happened a few days ago.

Dick..... he.. well.. He finally showed up after pulling a five year disappearing act. He finally made it a point to come down to Gotham to see me and actually just talk with me face to face.

After the blow out we had some years ago, I almost didn't think that I'd ever get to see him again. The thoughts of him always lingered in my head. Always wondered how he was doing.... or... if he was even still alive.

Long story short, it seems that after five years of me loosing the man I truely loved, he's back here in my arms indefinitly. Talk about a dramatic day, right?

After the talk we've had (the LONG talk, I might add) he's decided to stay here in Gotham and requested a transfer from the Buldhaven PD to the Gotham division... just for my sake.

That speaks a lot in my eyes. Just knowing that he'll be closer from here on out gives me the strong satisfaction that everything's starting to settle in their rightful places.

I haven't been seeing much of Cassandra lately. I'm not entirely sure what's going on there. Usually she's in bed or wondering around the tower when I get up, but lately when I have been getting up... she he's nowhere to be found.

And on a side note it seems that Bruce and Clark aren't speaking. (That figures.) I'm starting to seriously wonder what happened when the two of them were in Arubia.

Bruce mentioned to me earlier that Clark was mumbling something about "electric worms."

And I basically told him, "When the Man of Steel starts muttering about electric worms.... you should be weary."

...Brainaic hasn't been "talking" to me much. I think I pissed him off when I decided to escape into the cyber-realm to play a MMORPG for a while. I needed to complete a quest and there was a a Golem in my way-- which.... was he. Because let's face it... the Golems in game are NOT green and purple.

"If I kill you here, you die in real life."

I know his threats aren't empty, so I tend to take them seriously. And of course, he had to pick on me! My Cleric-in-training isn't even level 30 yet and he HAD to tell me this now? I stood no chance.

His character advanced toward me and I started throwing spells to try and weaken him.



I grumbled and climbed up on a rope to avoid him.

(It's a good thing that Golem's can't jump.)

While on the rope, I spoke. "And you couldn't wait until I was at a high enough level to take you down--"

"It is how you say more... 'amusing' to engage this way."

I jumped down and his hand smacked me.

He took about 200 points of my HP down. I had 6 left!

I gulped down cakes and red potions to pull my meter back up. "You cheat."

At this point I hopped I had a Return scroll that would return me to the next town. I crossed my fingers as I went through my inventory.

"I am simply playing the game. Isn't this fun Oracle?"

My eye narrowed. "Who's 'Oracle'? I'm called Vee here."

"DON'T try to sneak away from your true guise!!!"


He backed me into a coner-- I was dead for sure-- At least that's what HE thought--

I pulled out my Return Scroll and teleported to the next city-- Henesys.

I logged out and pulled away from the computer.

Needless to say, I have a feeling Branaic's pissed.

Then again.. he should have just waited until I was level 40-something. At least then it would have been a fair fight.

.....maybe I should keep this under wraps and not say anything.. until I figure out HOW to say. "Uh.. yeah.. Bruce, Dick? Brainaic almost owned me in a online game...."
