Sixteenth Day

By Marcus L. Rowland

"What happened?" asks Batman.

"Senator Bruckner," says Oracle. "Denounced the court's leniency, next thing they'd voted a year's imprisonment for the jailbreak."

"She's always been big on law and order issues..."

"Want me to dig, see if there's more behind it?"

"No, we've other fish to fry." He pushes Faith to the back of his mind.

Sixteen days later Bruckner's dead, LA's burning, and a dozen metahumans are hurt before things are under control.

The investigation reveals corruption in the California Supreme Court, cases where Bruckner used her influence illegally. Two months later Faith's released.

Comments please, before I post to archives this evening.

Gotta dash, late for work.
