Red

By Renate

Horror

Red

I do not own the bat brothers or batman or anyone in this story, nor do I own the cover image.

Two mangled corpses, two of the 5 people Tim loved most in the world. One of the others was currently standing over him with a crimson red pocket knife and gun.

Jason had lost it completely. His helmet lay smashed on the ground and blood stained his face.

He had killed Dick first, Dick hadn't been paying attention to Jason after just knocking The Scarecrow out. Jason jumped on him, shot him in the leg, then the arm, then the stomach, then the chest before cutting into him to give Dick the most painful death possible.

Next was Damian, who never stood a chance.

Tim had tried to stop Jason. He wasn't strong enough. Now he was going to die too.

He stared into Jason's eyes. He didn't see his older brother. He didn't see Jason. He saw a murderer.

"Please Jay. Please... this was a mistake... I know you're in there..." Tim pleaded.

Jason didn't reply. He just continued to prowl forward. Raising the gun, ready to pull the trigger. Tim was trembling and tears were moving down his face, washing away the blood in their path.

Jason's face didn't look angry, or scared, or even mildly out of comfort. He looked peaceful. Like this was what he wanted all along. To murder his brothers one at a time and in the most painful way possible.

"Please..." Tim cried, water fell off his cheeks and onto the hard concrete floor. He backed against the wall and pressed himself against it as hard as he could. Trying to get away from his brother.

Jason pulled the trigger. The bullet imbedded itself in Tim's lower leg, another shot found its way into Tim's shoulder. He kept felling bullets tear their way through his flesh until Jason stopped pulling the trigger.

"Jay... Please..." Jason stood over his little brother before bending Down. And slitting the boy's throat. Ending the young life.

Jason then shot himself in the foot, then the leg, the arm, and the chest. He then raised the knife to his own neck before cutting into his own flesh.

Batman arrived minutes after to find his four sons lying dead in pools of red. Their costumes were ripped in many places and all of them had slit throats.

Jason was holding his gun in one hand while his knife had slid out of his other had. Both weapons were drenched in red.

For the first time since he was eight years old, Batman... no Bruce Wayne began to cry.

Scarecrow lay unconscious on the floor 20ft. away from all the blood. Despite the fact he was unconscious he had an extremely cheery smile on his face.

Shelley Miller: The ideas and the set up and this are amazing! The feel of the story goes from science fiction to horror to suspense all in a big, thrilling ball. I really like your character so far and her powers and the idea of the ark being a person. The world is intense and gritty and clever as well. While a...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

Jason78: Be careful, once you open this book you won't want to put it down. A dark comedy horror that has plenty of twists and turns that Keeps you guessing. Fantastic book from start to finish, loved the story and can't wait to read the next one.

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
