In the split second it takes for Joker to smash Jasons head against the hard concrete floor, he realizes his mistakes. Batman warned him not to lose his head, not to indulge in his emotions. He warned him especially about dealing with the Joker. And what does he do? He goes and finds him by himself. Jason even made the smart decision to scramble his tracking devices so Batman wouldn’t follow him. Jason cursed himself in his head.
Jason feels his nose crush against the floor. He groans loudly and feels blood gush down his face as it coats his teeth and his bruised lips before it drips to the floor. Jokers tight grip on his hair prevents Jason from avoiding the seeds as they get in his eyes and mouth, sticking to the blood on his face. Robin pushes against him to no use, feeling his scalp scream in protest. Blind punches don’t catch on anything, the bird seed caught under the Kevlar of his mask and stinging his eyes. He spits a mixture of bird seed, blood and saliva out at Joker, grabbing the other mans wrists and curling his knees as he attempts to pry the dangerous clown from atop him.
“Get off!” He yells, struggling and thrashing against him. A rookie mistake. A stupid mistake, Jason thought to himself as he fought back childish fear.
This game wasn’t fun anymore.
Joker holds Jason tight and leans in close, watching the way the birdseed and blood sticks to his face. He’s really, really starting to appreciate the aesthetics of the combination. He wonders if he can use that again sometime later—he’d certainly try.
Less nice is getting that blood and birdseed—with a side of spit—on his face for his trouble. He flinches away, letting go of Jason just to rub it off. Apparently discontent with letting him get away with such a rude gesture unpunished, he kicks Jason in the ribs hard enough to flip him over.
“Not hungry, baby birdie? Don’t tell me you still need to be burped to prevent spit-up.” Joker trails off and laughs softly. “Maybe that’s what this was? I hope it wasn’t bad manners, because then I’d have to teach you a lesson and that’s really Batsy’s job… actually, it’s really his job to save his bird when he gets in over his head. Now… where is he?
