82 Tim Drake

"Alfred, am I being too impulsive today?"

At the entrance of Wayne Manor, Bruce watched Raphael's disappearing figure and asked in confusion.

Just ten minutes ago, Bruce packaged a large forest park in the Audisburg District of Wayne Enterprises and an abandoned warehouse in the East District and sold them to Raphael at a low price to be used for schools and orphanages.

The price is so low that it is better to call it a gift than a sale.

He didn't know whether he was right or wrong in agreeing to Raphael's request so easily, but he couldn't find a reason to refuse.

At least in front of Jason's grave, he couldn't say anything to refuse.

"What on earth are you suspecting, Master Wayne?"

Alfred said softly, whenever Bruce felt confused, the only person who could guide him was Alfred.

"Mr.Vongola is not a bad person, you said that his situation is very similar to yours, isn't it? And the Vongola family is doing the same thing as the Wayne family in Sokovia, maybe they can become ours ally."

"If you are really worried, you can pay attention to whether they are really helping the homeless children. I believe it is not difficult for you."

Bruce nodded in agreement.

"You're right, Alfred, I should be happy about it, instead of focusing on superfluous things, it should be work time now."

Looking at the gradually setting sun in the sky, Bruce turned around and walked into the depths of the manor.

Alfred went about his business unhurriedly, and he knew what Bruce's working hours meant.

The Bat Cave is a cave located under the Wayne Manor. The entrance and exit are hidden in the waterfall in the back mountain of Wayne Manor. Of course, there are also secret passages leading directly to Bruce's room.

This is Bruce's office, his real home.

Batman's basement.

There is a huge computer in the center of the bat cave, named the bat computer, which is one of the most advanced supercomputers in the world.

It is because of the existence of the bat computer that Batman can know the city of Gotham very well, and criminal acts that occur anywhere can be discovered at the first time.

At this moment, Bruce was staring at the screen on the monitor with cold eyes.

a photo.

In the photo is a pale face smiling.

A picture of a clown.

In addition to this photo, all known criminal records about clowns are shown.

But there are only criminal records. The last record is the time of Jason's accident. There is no more information.

Name? Unknown.

age? Unknown.

Blood type? Unknown.

Relationships? That's ominous among ominous, unless you count Harley Quinn and Joker's gang.

The clown's blood type is the only one in the world. There are a lot of components that make up laughing gas in his blood samples. The existing genetic technology cannot even confirm his original blood type.

Whether it is hair, nails, teeth, dander or even genes, there is not a single bit of similar information in the archives around the world.

He is like a person who suddenly appeared in the world and did not exist before.

As long as the clown wants to hide, there is no clue to find him.

Luckily, the Joker isn't one to hide, so he gets caught in Arkham Asylum every time by Batman.

But this time...

"Why didn't you show up? Clown, where are you?"

There was an anger in Bruce's heart, and he didn't want the clown to show up at a moment like now.

Since Jason's "death", Batman has found everyone who might know the whereabouts of the Joker.

Harley Quinn, the Joker gang, and even the villains who have worked with the Joker before have been arrested in The Arkham Asylum, Batman also visited them one by one, trying to find clues about the Joker.

Unfortunately, he got nothing.

For half a year, there was no news of the Joker.

"Your face is ugly now, you should try to relax."

At this moment, a young voice came over.

Bruce turned his head quickly, staring at the person who made the sound like a falcon.

A thirteen-year-old boy in a Robin uniform was looking at him with a smile on his face.

It's just that this Robin uniform is visibly rough.

"how do you..."

"Come in?"

Before Bruce could finish his question, the boy continued his words.

"Do you remember? It's not the first time I've come here."

Bruce did not continue to struggle, how the boy slipped into the bat cave without being discovered, but called Alfred directly.

"Alfred, come to the Batcave and take Tim home."

"Sorry, Master Wayne, you were talking about Tim? Tim Drake? How did that kid..."

"Don't worry about that, Alfred, take him away!"

Bruce interrupted Alfred.

"Okay, Mr. Wayne, I'll be right there."

"Hey! You can't just drive me away!"

Tim said urgently.

"You are in a very bad state now, you are suppressing the anger in your heart, and you don't want to admit it, I can see it, and... I can help you."

"You're wrong, I don't need help."

Bruce said with a cold face.

"But Batman needs it!"

Tim is looking into Bruce's eyes , Batman's actions have become more and more reckless and violent these days, anger is burning your mind, it will make You go to extremes step by step. "

"And that's exactly what the Joker wants to see!"

"He knows that you will look for him desperately, so he will deliberately avoid you, because only in this way can you force Batman to do things that Batman will never do."

Tim spoke his thoughts calmly.

Hearing this, Bruce was taken aback for a moment, and he looked into Tim's eyes.

The child's eyes were clear and firm, shining with the light of wisdom.

And he is indeed very wise, no child can analyze these things.

This is a very good seedling, Bruce thought.

Like Dick and Jason...

Damn it!

Why did he have thoughts that he shouldn't have!

Leslie is right, Robin is a thing of the past, and Batman doesn't need a new Robin anymore.

"You are very smart, so you should concentrate on your studies and do what you should do at your age, instead of thinking about being a vigilante."

Bruce stared at Tim Road.

"You have a happy family. You should cherish this. Obediently let Alfred take you home, and don't force me to notify your parents to pick you up."

After he finished speaking, Bruce forcibly picked Tim up, put it on his shoulders and sent it out of the bat cave to Alfred who had just arrived.

"I won't give up, I must let you recognize me as Robin!"

Tim yelled.

"I'll let you know that I didn't want to be Robin, but Robin chose me!"
