I’ve been on this wonderful site for more then a year and I’ve never posted anything besides a fan cast, so here we go.

I started working on this story several months ago. I haven’t gotten very far due to the fact that I’ve had final exams (I’m now done with school). Here is a sneak peak …



THE GRIM AVENGER

It was a dark knight. The heavy rain poured down upon the lush green grass and tombstones of the Gotham City cemetery. A man crawled out from behind a large oak tree and made his way towards a pair of marble graves.
Once the man had reached the tombstones he lay down beside them and removed his cowl. He rested his head on the smooth marble and allowed the rain to wash his badly damaged body.
“I have failed, please forgive me” said the man as he closed his eyes for the first and last time …

THREE WEEKS EARLIER…

The last thing that Salvatore Maroni remembered was the bloody corpses of his men as they were massacred by machine guns.
At present, Maroni found himself in the back of an armored vehicle sitting in between two suited men who wore black masks.
“What the hell is this?” asked Maroni as soon as he re gained consciousness.
“Sal Maroni…” chuckled a man in the passenger seat “I would like for you to join the society. The False Face Society”
“Hmmm….let me see, you gunned down more than half my men, hit me in the back of the head with who knows what, then kidnap me…and now you want me to join your posse?” laughs Maroni, “this has got to be some kind of joke”
“No Sal, this is not some kind of joke” said the man with anger seeping into his voice.
“Alright, how about telling me who the hell you are?”
The man lifted his left hand and switched on the interior light of the vehicle.
Maroni flinched.
The man was dressed in a dark grey suit and his face was covered by a black skull mask. Dark green eyes stared back at Maroni.
“I am Black Mask”
“I see. So what exactly can you do for me, Black Mask?” questioned Maroni leaning forward.
“I can do something that no one else in Gotham can do”
“Drive with a seat belt or find Harvey Dents body?” asked Maroni grinning like a fox.
“I can kill The Batman”
“Like I haven’t heard that before”
“Unlike the Joker, I can deliver,” grunted Black Mask.
“What exactly is in it for you…don’t say half”
Black Mask made a sound that might have been a laugh.
“I want you and what’s left of your men to join The False face Society”
“I don’t play second fiddle to anybody,” responded Maroni leaning back.
“Really?” Asked Black Mask nodding at the men next to Maroni, who promptly pulled out their guns, “I was hoping that you would reconsider!”
“Alright…alright!” yelled Maroni, “but why me?”
“Sal, my society would benefit greatly by having a hard working, experienced man like you”
Maroni nodded.
“I’ll be touch,” said Black Mask just as the vehicle stopped.
The henchmen on the right of Maroni stood up and opened the back door of the vehicle.
“This is where we go our separate ways, Sal” chuckled Black Mask.
“What the hell, you can’t just leave me in the middle of a forest that’s six miles away from the city!”
“Farewell, Sal…” said Black Mask as Maroni was the thrown out of the vehicle.
The black vehicle then drove of into the darkness.

At the age of thirty one, Floyd Lawton was one of the best assassins in the world.
At present Lawton relaxed under the Hawaiian sun. This was his first vacation in the past eleven months. He picked up his cocktail and took a quick sip, savoring the taste.
Just as Lawton was about to close his eyes his cell phone began to vibrate. He pulled out his phone from his pocket and stared at the screen.
It was time to go to work…
