Mathison looked at the firm expression on James Jr.’s face and asked with interest.
“Do you often go out to find supplies in order to help your classmates survive?”
It seems that after this incident, this child has grown up. What a manly expression!
“Food is hard to find now, and it must be strictly distributed; we cannot add another person to the list of survivors.”
James Jr. replied to Mathison’s question and then explained.
In short, it is impossible to get materials from them.
“You’re not yet fifteen years old now, but still, you are relying on your own self to protect more than a dozen peers. I’m starting to respect you, kid.”
“This has nothing to do with you. But first of all, why on earth did you run here alone?”
James Jr. said curiously.
“Those gangs bombarded schools on a large scale, but their purpose was not to kill students, otherwise we wouldn’t be alive today.”
“So you shouldn’t be one of them. And from your willingness to talk to us instead of just coming up and grabbing the food, I can tell you’re not a mob who has lost his mind either.”
“You don’t look like you’re hungry, your suit is not only high-end but also very clean, and you dare to walk around the streets of Gotham with a non-aggressive pet…”
“It’s so weird. Unless you came to Gotham today, it impossible for you you to look like this.”
“But Bane said that if he found out that a rescue team had entered Gotham, he would immediately detonate a nuclear bomb. The fact that you are swaggering here proves that Bane knows nothing about your arrival…”
“Who are you, Lupin the Third?”
Mathison couldn’t help but applaud, even Cassie gave James Jr. a sideways glance. She hadn’t thought about these questions from the time she met Mathison until now.
She didn’t feel any malice from Mathison, so she wasn’t concerned about him.
“Good reasoning, who do you think I would be?”
Mathison stared at James Jr.’ eyes and asked expectantly.
“You are Phantom Kid.”
James Jr. said lightly.
“Recently, there were rumors in the city that Phantom Kid will steal the nuclear bomb and save Gotham. Although most people think you can’t do it, it brought, at least, a lot of hope to many.”
“I can’t think of anyone other than Phantom Kid who could sneak into Gotham without being detected.”
“You seem to have forgotten Batman.”
Hearing this, James Jr. suddenly clenched his fists, his teeth bit his lower lip, and his eyes were moist.
“Batman has been defeated by Bane. No one knows if he will come back alive; we can’t rely on him this time…”
“How did you know that Batman was defeated by Bane?”
Mathison frowned and asked, this information has never been circulated in the outside world.
James Jr. couldn’t answer, he just shook his head.
Obviously, he is hiding something.
“You are Phantom Kid, the Magician under The Moonlight, right? I have heard of you.”
At this moment, Cassie interjected the conversation between the two.
“I thought you would look very handsome, I didn’t expect you to have a monkey face.”
“Cassie, what we are seeing is not his real face.”
James Jr. raised touched forehead and said. Why would anyone think that Phantom Kid would show his real face in front of others?
“You mean Lupin’s face is fake!”
Cassie was shocked.
“How is this possible? I can’t… I can’t understand at all.”
Mathison was also surprised, there are still people in Gotham who don’t know so much about him?
This is a ridiculous failure.
“Phantom Kid is the best at disguise, and he can pretend to be anyone he wants. The face he reveals can never be trusted.”
James Jr. explained to Cassie what he meant by that.
“It’s something everyone knows in Gotham.”
This sentence made Mathison’s heart race.
“You mean, this girl isn’t from Gotham, isn’t she your classmate?”
“Cassie is my classmate, but she’s not from Gotham, or even American. She just moved in with her aunt about half a month ago.”
James Jr. scratched his head, somewhat distressed.
“Cassie’s hometown seems to be relatively primitive, and she doesn’t know many things.”
Speaking of which, James Jr. took a glance at Cassie and was relieved after confirming that she was not upset.
This explains it all. Most young people are fascinated by Phantom Kid. Naturally, he was perplexed when he found one that doesn’t even know much about him.
“Can you gather your schoolmates together, Gordon’s Son.”
Mathison asked again.
“Yes, yes, but what do you want to do?”
“I can help keep you from being attacked by people from now on.”
Mathison’s face was brimming with confidence.
James Jr. and Cassie looked questioningly at Mathison, then looked at each other again.
“He’s not an evil person.”
“Well, we trust you.”
James Jr. nodded, then ran inside the school and, after some time, came running back.
Behind him followed less than twenty students, some were in the same grade as James and Cassie, others were in lower grades.
Gotham High School had a lot of students, but only a few survived at this time.
It’s unknown how long it will take to recover from the trauma Gotham suffered in this incident.
Mathison didn’t say much.
When the students got together, Mathison led them into Gotham’s best-preserved dormitory building.
Then, out of nowhere, Mathison pulled out a bag of strange herbs and ground them into powder on the spot.
He scattered it around the building.
And after sprinkling it, he held a branch and carved strange symbols on the ground.
That’s right, Mathison was creating a magic circle!
