Friend of my Friend

Baking the cakes had been the easy part. The baking had been the easy portion of the plan. Finding someone to deliver them had been much harder.

El Dragón knew that the man was bad. He knew that the man did naughty things. But he was the only person El Dragón could find who could deliver the cakes that day, so El Dragón had to make a decision. He had to choose whether to get the cakes delivered by the bad man, or not delivered at all.

El Dragón chose the former. He chose the first of the two options.

He soon regretted making that choice. He wished he hadn't made that choice almost as soon as the bad man came to get his payment.

"I didn't realize that you were so bad." El Dragón said. "I didn't understand that. I realized that you cause trouble, but not this much."

"But she made me tell her, El Dragón!" the bad man cried. "She made me explain what was happening. I'm her friend. She knows and likes me, so when she asked I had to tell her."

"What exactly does she know?" El Dragón asked. "What precise details does she know?"

"She knows that the cakes are for Superman. She also knows that there are at least a hundred of them. She knows that that is as many as ten tens, and that it takes a long time to eat that many cakes."

El Dragón sighed. He breathed out a breath of air in relief. "So she doesn't know that they were from me? She does not know? It would be bad if she knew that they were from me. It wouldn't be good, because she could then tell Superman, and I could get into a lot of trouble."

"No, she doesn't know." said the bad man. "But she did say that if Superman was busy tonight, then he couldn't meet Batman as expected. He couldn't meet Batman as he is supposed to. If he doesn't meet him, Batman will be alone. Batman will be on his own, and that will be a perfect time to attack him."

"Oh no!" El Dragón exclaimed. He phoned Robin very quickly. He did it very fast.

"Robin, it's El Dragón." he said. "You have to listen to me. You have to pay attention to me. Batman is in trouble. He is in danger, because Catwoman is going to try to attack him tonight. We have to make sure we get to him before Catwoman does. We have to get there earlier than her."

"Okay, I will see you there." Robin replied. "I will see you at that place."

El Dragón ran off without paying the bad man. He ran off without giving the bad man any money for the job he had done.

And that's terrible.
