"So love brings you pain Ms. Tanner?" He looked at me with a serious face. "You fear the feeling of being with a lover." "You make it sound so simple." I spat at him. "Like nothing could bring love to an end." I was furious. How could he think it was so easy to love someone, it brought more pain than it did happiness. "Than obviously you haven't found the right lover yet."Rated: Fiction T - English - Adventure/Drama - Bane & J.

"Tanner and you three, down here with me right now! You two go down and cover the next exit!" Commisioner Gordon said frantically.
I made my way over to the manhole and followed in after Gordon swiftly. Who in their right minds would crawl down here? Oh yeah thats right, criminals. Once I touched down to the bottom floor I slid over closer to Gordon to make room for the 3 SWAT team members coming down with us.
I didn't know what Gordon was looking for so I followed closely behind him as we started to make our way down the pitch black hallway. All of us reached for our flashlights that we had and turned them on. The city really needed to do something about the lighting down here. Sure there were lights every few feet but very few of them worked anymore.
I saw Gordon pull out his handgun and I instantly cursed at myself for leaving my pistol in the cruiser. What was I thinking? I was a cop for crying out loud! Well I just hoped that we wouldn't run into a situation where I would need my gun. I mean why would I need it when I had three guys carrying assault rifles behind me?
Back from the manhole I heard talking. It sounded like John was talking again. When did that guy ever shut up? I knew better than most about his curiosity in situations. He was like a five year old. Why are we here? Why aren't we following them? I mean the guy was a good cop but he got annoying. That's why the GCPD just had to assign him and I to patrols together.
The next thing I knew gunshots were being fired. Two from the SWAT team dropped instantly. Gordon grabbed me and pushed me at the wall on the other side of the hall. There was a ledge just big enough to hide behind. I scooted down the wall and the Commissioner slid in. The shots from our other team member were soon lost and Gordon fired a few shots over his shoulder.
Then some type of explosive went off and fire was everywhere. It didn't quite make it beyond our ledge though, thank god. Gordon looked at me and I could see the fear in his eyes as he panted some. How old was this guy anyways? In his 50's? I was sure he was old enough to not be going down into tunnels and shooting off guns at the enemy.
He checked the corner with his flashlight quickly and turned to look at me before looking down the other way to make sure no one else was there. But, as he checked his corner I heard something move in the darkness, then everything went black.
When I started to see fuzzy images I realized I was being dragged through the tunnels I was in. Two guys were on either side of me holding me up by my jacket and arms and from all the noise they were making I had a feeling Commissioner Gordon was in front of me.
My feet started to hit the ground in a quick fashion. So I was going down stairs. I started to groggily look around to see if I could memorize the area just in case of the slim chance that I made it out of here alive.
I saw men, sitting on the floors and hanging from ceilings, There seemed to be some kind of construction work going on in the pit that I was in. Also, the sound of rushing water filled my ears.
After being dragged a little bit farther I was dropped to the ground completely. Looking to my right I saw Gordon laying beside me, wincing in pain from the looks of it. Suddenly a voice came from above my head, it was menacing and rough it almost sounded filtered somehow.
"Why are you here?"
Our captors kicked us and one said "Answer him!" I cried out in pain from the blow to my side.
"I was asking you." The man grumbled. I could look up and see one of the men have a look of confusion hit his face.
"I-It's the police commissioner and-" He paused a moment looking at me, "One of his officers." He looked pleased with himself for bringing us to this cave in the sewers.
Then I heard the boots of the man they had brought us to scuff the floor as he stood up.
"And you brought them down here?" He almost seemed amused in his response. Another guy then pitched in, "We didn't know what to do, we just thought-" The man of authority walked forward and into my line of site. He was masked and very built. He had muscles everywhere. He was shirtless and had not a hair on his body. He was very tall and I could see why you could easily be afraid of him.
"You panicked, and your weakness has cost us the life of three others." He said very matter-a-factly. "He's a-" One of my captors started but was then cut off when the masked man grabbed him by the next with one of his hands, squeezing the life out of him. If this man was capable of this much there was no telling what he would do to us.
"Search them. Then I will kill you."
Two hands started patting me down and dug into my pant pockets. He then moved over to the Commissioner and did the same, but he pulled out a few sheets of paper from his coat pocket and took his gun. Giving the objects to the masked man he preceded to unfold the papers to glance over them.
Then Gordon flipped over the edge of the railing beside him and fell into the rush of water waiting for him below, abandoning me in the process. Then shots were fired and yelling ensued as Gordon floated off to who knows where.
I was then pulled up to my feet and away from the edge. They probably thought that if Gordon could do it why couldn't I? I pulled at my hands trying to brake free but was pulled back closer to the two men that held me.
"He's dead." A man carrying a rifle said to the masked man. The tall man turned around, "So show me his body."
The other then seemed to panic, "The water flows to anyone of the outflows, we'll never find him."
Another henchman took something off his waistband and proceeded to click a button on it. The menacing one took it and shoved it onto the other man, "Then follow him." The man with the rifle seemed confused, "Follow him?" A gunshot rang in the air as the man was shot and proceeded to fall over the side of the railing just as Commissioner Gordon did. The masked man went to go back to doing whatever he was doing when one of the men holding me started to talk.
"Boss, What about her?" Great. Now it was my turn to die. The man got up from his position at the desk and walked over to me studying me as he went. "Ah yes, the officer. And your name is?" The two men holding me let go and backed away as the other man came closer. Like hell I was telling this guy my name. Then I was being pushed to the wall, being held around my neck by a man with a deadly grip. "Elise!" I blurted out. He slackened his grip on me.
"And does a last name come with the first?" He looked at me intensely with his blue eyes, almost daring me to speak again. "Tanner. Elise Tanner." I said slowly. He came even closer to me. "Well now that your down here Officer Tanner it looks like your going to have to stay." And now I was going to be kept here, Great. He called off to one of his henchmen, "Barsad, take her to a room." The man that gave him the device came over and took my arm starting to pull me in the direction of the exit.
"Wait!" I was stopped and the masked man turned to look at me yet again. "What's your name?" He walked close enough to be arms length away from me and said, "You Officer may call me Bane." I gave him the best attempt of a smile that I could give him. "And Officer, since we are asking questions I have one final one to ask before you leave." I looked up at him expectantly. What more does he want to know now?
"What brings you pain?" He had amusement in his eyes. Why would you ask someone that? So I replied quickly.
As Barsad began to drag me away I swear I heard Bane utter three words.
"We will see."
