"Alfred, I have left home for a while to live on the streets with Selina. Please wait and listen before you react. You need not worry that I am in danger or that I've lost my mind. I've thought long and hard about this decision and I know it's the right one. Malone's death made me realize a couple of things: You can't kill murder. You can't get revenge on evil. You can only begin to fight such things by now doing them. And you can only fight them where they live, not just at Wayne Enterprises - in the streets, in the slums, in the bad parts of town. So that is where I'm going. I'm not going to start battling muggers or anything, but one day I am going to do something to help the people of Gotham. I don't know what yet, but I will. In the meantime, I need to learn stuff. I need to learn how to live in the same world other people have to live in. Selin's giving me a place to stay and will show me the ropes. Like I say, there's no need to worry. I'll be in touch soon and I'll come home eventually. Please, Alfred, trust me and honor my wishes. Don't try to bring me back. I need to do this. Sincerely, your good friend, Bruce." Of course, none of the characters are mine, they do not belong to me. They belong to Dc Comics, and Fox. SET IN GOTHAM.
