A Night to Remember

Jake and Nick saw the music hall, and suddenly, there was a spring in their steps and a shine in their eyes. After all, this was the hallowed ground which had changed their fortunes last night.

“I’ve never seen a turnout like that,” exclaimed Jake.

“A Charity Gala like that, the who’s who of the city in attendance, and all eyes only on us,” Nick’s face was almost glowing with glee as he recalled the evening.

Jake stopped, and turning towards Nick, said in a clearly emotional tone, “No one can stop us now, my friend, no one.”

Nick’s eyes too watered up as he remembered all the struggles they had gone through together over the last few years. Then, using his sleeve to wipe off the tears, he asked, “Which was your best part of the evening, mate?”

Jake thought for a bit, and then replied, “When that hotshot business tycoon almost pissed his pants when you pointed the gun at him and asked him to hand over his wallet. What was his name again?”

Nick frowned as he searched his memory for the name, “Bill….Bailey…Brandon…Ah yes, got it…Bruce Wayne!”

    Uh, oh…. Jake and Nick better be careful… I’ve heard that Bruce has connections to some Batty friends. 😉
