BONUS Chapter brought to you by, the one and the only, KingSpy25i, enjoy!
Hearing this, Barbara nodded and waited for Pamela to jump down the tunnel before following up.
After some time, Pamela stopped.
This is the exit of the tunnel.
Barbara waited for her next move.
“Barbara, I see a security camera near here, can you hack it?”
Pamela first closed her eyes and switched her perspective to the plants on the ground, only to find a camera.
“A piece of cake.”
This is Barbara’s speciality.
She took out her mobile phone and started a call.
After dozens of seconds…
“Okay, I set the camera to play the previously filmed content on a loop for ten minutes, during which time we won’t be filmed no matter what we do.”
Barbara gave Pamela an OK gesture.
After getting confirmation, Pamela waved her little hand, and a hole opened automatically in the ground above her head, and the two women climbed up from the hole.
Hmm… the ground was above their heads, sounds a little weird, but it is what it is.
As soon as she came out of the ground, Pamela took a deep breath in fascination.
“Barbara, I’ve never felt so good… I… I feel great!”
Pamela looked down at her hands, clenching them and opening them.
A warm feeling poured into Pamela’s body from this land, which was full of flowers and plants, and her Poison Ivy’s superpower suddenly increased several times.
For the first time in her life, she felt that she really had such a thing as “power”.
Pamela knew very well that she didn’t need anyone’s help or protection at all at this time, on the contrary, she could protect others herself.
For a long time after her ability was awakened, Pamela hated the experiment that turned her into this.
She hated the way her body had become green.
It wasn’t until she first used her abilities to rescue Mathison that Pamela began to feel that her plant-controlling superpowers weren’t useless.
«If I had this ability in the first place, I would be able to protect Dad from being killed by Daggett… and then again, I would have been able to avenge him.»
«But… in my case, I will never get to see him in my life…»
It was only after she went to New York that she gained her ability, and up to now, Pamela couldn’t tell whether her powers were good or bad.
“Come on, Barbara, let’s go this way.”
Now is not the right time for any further fantasies, Pamela told Barbara to set off together.
The next step is for Pamela to switch to the plant perspective to check out the situation and let Barbara hack surveillance equipment once she finds them.
If other traps or fear gas were found, it is up to Pamela to destroy them.
Although Pamela is theoretically absolutely immune to fear gas, she won’t drop her guard down and let herself inhale it.
She directly controlled branches to trigger traps around.
The dose of fear gas in each trap is so small that it can be completely absorbed by plants.
Their journey was unhindered.
But why did they take this path in the first place? Well, obviously, because only convenience stores and tourist restaurants exist here.
After all, not many people will open a shop in the woods to sell things.
They do not know when the events in Gotham will end, it is likely to be a prolonged war.
Without enough supplies, they won’t be able to move an inch.
Fortunately, Robinson Park was blocked very early, and most of the supplies inside are well preserved.
There are adequate amounts of drinking water, various snacks, bread sandwiches, and other dry food in the convenience store.
The refrigerator in the restaurant has even some vegetables and meat in it, although certainly no longer fresh, but at least not spoiled.
Because of the need to maintain the high-voltage power grid outside the park, there was no power outage in the park, and the refrigerator barely functions.
In this way, Barbara and Pamela found their secret base.
“I have to check how my dad and little James are doing now.”
In the tourist restaurant, Barbara revealed her next objective.
“Pamela, do you have any plans? Phantom Kid’s whereabouts are secretive, and it’s too hard to find him.”
“It doesn’t matter. He said in his teaser letter that he would steal the nuclear bomb on the full moon, so he will definitely show up at that time.”
Pamela told Barbara that she didn’t have to worry.
“When the time comes, I’ll just go and help him.”
“Then why did you come to Gotham so many days in advance?”
Barbara asked curiously.
Hearing this, Pamela frowned and grabbed Barbara’s ear with a swift movement.
“You’re still asking me why? Do you think I don’t care about anyone other than Kid?”
“I’m your senior schoolmate, both at Gotham University and New York University, and we’re still good friends, aren’t we?”
“Ouch, Pamela, it hurts so much!”
Barbara immediately apologized.
Pamela grunted coldly and released her grip.
“How can I stand by and watch you, a stupid girl, come here and die alone?”
Barbara rubbed her red ears and could not help but feel her heart palpitating.
She couldn’t resist Pamela all just now, and could only be held by her motionless.
«Moreover, how does Pamela feel like a completely different person? Usually she is obviously so gentle…»
Barbara thought to herself only but couldn’t say it.
She still didn’t say a word, that is, she was very moved by Pamela to accompany her to Gotham to take risks.
“Location-wise, GCPD is closer to here than Gotham High School.”
The drama ended, Pamela and Barbara got down to business.
“The latest information we got is that Chief Gordon was shot in the fight with Bane and taken to the GCPD Police Hospital, where it is unknown whether he is dead or alive.”
“Little James was in class in Gotham Middle School when the school was suddenly attacked by thugs, and countless students died.”
Barbara said the information with concern.
“How about we split up now? I’ll go further to Gotham High School to find your brother, and you go to Commissioner Gordon.”
Pamela suggested that and took the initiative to go to Gotham High School. The farther the journey, the more dangers she might encounter.
“Whether we find them or not, we have to come back here before dawn.”
Barbara knew that Pamela was stronger than her, so she did not argue with her on this issue.
“Pamela, be careful…”
Just as the two girls were splitting, Mathison also brought Charlie to a place where walls were broken.
“There are no surveillance cameras around here on any gangsters.”
It was Charlie, the brave scout, who took the lead. And after confirming the area’s safety, Mathison came out of the darkness.
“I didn’t expect Gotham High School to be destroyed like this…”
Looking at the ruins in front of him and the countless broken limbs and arms, Mathison couldn’t help but sigh.
This was the place where he went to school and had a lot of memories.
Mathison did not expect such a coincidence, he randomly picked the route that actually happens to lead towards Gotham High School.
“Charlie, is there anyone alive here?”
Charlie’s nose twitched hard and nodded very definitely.
“There are a lot of survivors in the school, and they’re all hiding in deep places.”
