When it Rains - Chapter 17: Something New
Bruce took Jack to his room and laid him on his bed to rest more comfortably. There at the corner he found a change of clothes for both Jack and him. It felt so uncomfortable being in wet and constricting business clothes. He looked over to Jack to make absolutely sure that he was asleep. He didn't want the jester to catch him in the buff while he stripped. He quickly changed into the set of dry and casual clothes then took the new dry pajamas over to Jack. He cautiously unraveled the blanket off his pale body and tried not to lay eyes on the naked white form in front of him. But it was hard to ignore it though.

Most of them were in old and forgotten parts of the island. Gotham might sleep soundly for once seeing the inmates' only means of escaping Arkham are being permanently closed off.
"The next escape route, from what you described, should be over the west side of the Intensive Treatment building," spoke Oracle through Batman's communication link.
"Thanks Oracle, I'm heading over right now," replied Bruce as he rushed off to Arkham North.
"Nightwing, there's one next to you in between the docks and the Penitentiary," she added via the three way connection.
"I'm on it," reported Nightwing as he made his way to Arkham West. These were the last two routes that needed to be closed off; the warden was more than happy to agree to Batman and his team to search the island. Anything to ensure there would be no
