Sideways laid in the back of the Batmobile mumbling random talk about Arkham City. I knew exactly where to take her. She will be locked up there for the rest of her life unless she becomes sane, which I doubt.
Sideways had taken over Arkham City completely. She blew down s hole in the perimeter wall causing all of the prisoners to escape, leaving her and the prisoners who she has control over left in Arkham City. To keep others from escaping she blocked up the escape hole by blowing up a nearby building, the building crashed near the entrance leaving behind a huge gravel filled rock wall. A few weeks after the takeover, Harley Quinn had mysteriously disappeared from Arkham, and last week Lukess Dire has also disappeared, she was destroying to city too much, I had to take her out of there, and put her back in the Asylum that was opening up again.
I drove down the road to Arkham Asylum when I reached the gates. Standing there was an Arkham security guard.
"Batman, I'm glad you're here. I trust that you have captured Sidesie?"
"I have. It was too simple." I told the guard.
"Fantastic." He turned back to the other guard who was controlling the gates. "Bring him in." He told him.
I slowly drove through the gates and parked outside the intensive treatment. Standing near the doors were a group of security guards who were waiting for there next patient. I stopped the Bat mobile and opened the driver's door to step out. When I got out of the car, I moved to one of the back door and opened them. I dragged Sideway out by the shoulder out of the car and placed her on her feet.
"HEY! I was sleeping! I don't get a lot of sleep, what with making Arkham City burn to the ground!" She laughed again.
"She won't be much of a problem with her father gone now."
"Thank you Batman, you can be on your way now." Said one of the guards.
As much as I would like to put the Joker family aside for good, I didn't trust her to leave her on her own. I captured her way to easy. "It would be best if I stay for a bit longer." I addressed the guard.
"Understood." Said the guard. The guards took Sideways from my hands and began to push her into Intensive Treatment.
I followed behind the security into Intensive Treatment and down the hallways. This brings back memories years ago of when I bring Joker here causing me to run around for the entire night.
They first took Sideways through the metal detector to scan for any weapons. The doors closed behind us. "Starting scanning." I heard Cash's voice echo through the speakers. The scanning began. Blue lights ran across the guards, Sideways and I, and began to beep soon afterwards.
"She is holding weapons. As well as Batman." Said Cash through the speakers.
"Batman, I expected better from you. What'cha got there?" Sideways laughed. I didn't answer her, only because it would stir her up even more. The guards went through her and began to pull out weapons. They pulled out a chain wrapped around the band of her jeans, a gun from her waist belt and knives form her jean pockets.
"Careful with those, they weren't cheap!" Sideways joked.
We walked down the hallway, down a bridge and heading into an elevator. "How many other criminals are in here so far?" I asked.
"Not many big time ones, just many lunatics and mild patients." He reassured me. "The only big-time criminals we have are Harvey Dent, Victor Zsasz, Croc, and we have Lukess Dire coming in soon."
I eyed the guard. "Are you sure that is a safe for Lukess Dire to be-."
"Wolfie's coming? Woohoo!" Cheered Sideways. "Please can we share a cell? Please, please, pleeeeeeeeease?" Sideways whined.
"Quiet prisoner!" Snapped a guard.
"Aaron cash, is that you! Daddy J has told me a lot about you, how's the beloved family of yours?" Sideways laughed.
"I said be quiet!" He demanded shoving her in the bad with his gun.
"You really shut up sometimes. It could get you in trouble." She growled at the end of her sentence.
The elevator arrived and they led her into the elevator, up the floor, and headed into the interview room.
As I stepped out of the elevator, I could see Gordon looking over some files at his desk.
"Batman, it's good to see you." He said walked over to me, greeting me with a handshake.
"You too Gordon." I greeted back.
"So you finally caught her? Good thing too, she would of destroyed Gotham soon enough. But we got that animal behind bars now." He told me, as we approached the interview room. I looked through the window to see her sitting down in front of one of the doctors with a few nurses by her side.
"Just because she is caught doesn't mean Quinn will be forgotten, she might know where she is." I told Gordon, eying Sideways carefully.
"Patient interview number one. Patient's real name is Sideways J, belonged in the care of Joker and Harleen Quinzel." The doctor spoke into the tape recorder she was holding, then placed it on the desk.
"So Sidesie, how are you." The doctor greeted her kindly.
Sideways put her feet up on the table in front her and relaxed in her chair. "Thank you for asking. I am so happy to be back in Daddy J's asylum." She smirked at the doctor.
"I'm afraid that it is not Joker's asylum, it's Arkham's." The doctor told her.
"Whatever makes you happy." Sideways rolled her eyes at the doctor.
"I see…" The doctor said uncomfprtablly. "I would like to know about your mother Harley? We would like to know if you know where she is."
Sideways burst out laughing. "I have no clue where she is! And even if I did I wouldn't tell you!"
"Understood. Do you know why Lukess left you?" She asked her, not showing any sympathy
"Not really." She said, not sounding the slightest bit upset, although she did stop laughing.
"Doesn't it upset you to know that he left?"
"All I know is that he did it for a good reason." She smiled happily. Of course Sideways would say that. She is just as delusional as Quinn.
"But what if it wasn't for a good reason what if-."
There was an explosion that broke out in the Interview room on the ceiling. The huge pieces of ceiling fell in a blink of an eye, but everyone in the room jumped out of the way of the huge pieces.
As an immediate reflex I ran to the huge metal door that separated me from the room. I tried my best to open the door, but I was unable to open it. I turned towards the guard who was in the control room. "Open the door now!" I snapped towards him.
The guard in the security room began to look very worried, he hurriedly pushed all different buttons trying to open the door. "Something's wrong, I can't open it!" He shouted back to me.
I looked back through the window to see everyone getting to their feet, all not taking their eyes off the hole gaping hole in the ceiling. Then, all chaos broke loose.
He appeared. Lukess Dire, also known as 'The Werewolf' and Sideways' boyfriend jumped into the room. As he did, the door gasped in fear and stepped away from him. The nurses ran towards him, trying to get a hold of him, but they never stood a chance. Lukess slit both of the nurses' throats with a knife when they got in range of him. He turned his attention back to the doctor, he picked up the chair that was near his and flew it towards her. The chair hit the doctor with a strong impact, knocking her to the floor with a painful yell. He walked over to the doctor, still holding the knife that was dripped with the nurses' blood. He bent over the injured woman and slit her throat.
In the mist of all of the chaos going on in that room, I was trying with all my strength to open the door.
"Ah, ah, ah B-Man!" Came a voice from a speaker above my head. I felt myself get electrocuted when I tried forcing the door open with my arm. I stepped away from the door holding my head in pain. I couldn't see straight at all and my head was spinning. "We still got a few plans that we need to catch up on, and you're not going to ruin them!" It was Harley Quinn. Harley must of somehow got into the main security room and shut down the access that the interview control room had. She had also turned on the electrical fence to stop me from getting in.
I ran back over to the viewing glass and banged on the glass, in the meantime, Lukess and Sideways were escaping. As Sideways climbed up the hole, she stopped for a moment to look back at me through the viewing glass. "Have fun chasing me around Batsy!" She laughed before she made her way out of the hole, and into the rest of the asylum.
I growled to myself and returned my attention back to the rest of the room. The guards began to take orders from Gordon. The orders were about sending multiple guards up stairs and searching the floors, which I knew was pointless. "Never mind that." I said waking towards the guards. "Protect all of the exits and make sure she doesn't get out of intensive treatment. I will search the upper floors." I ordered.
"Batman! Are you sure you can handle this?" Said Gordon.
"I am sure, she isn't as powerful without Joker around."
