It had taken him forever, but all the hard work was finally about to pay off.
Cat had always planned on returning to the Burrow, attacking it one more, and hopefully last time. But the problem was that it was almost impossible to sneak in. Only reason to why he succeeded the first time was because he could replace one of the card dealers. But he doubted that he could reuse the same trick twice. Mr Rabbit and Gunbunny had probably made a new system in order to make sure that they wouldn't be infiltrated again, a code-word, scanning of fingerprints, loyalty enchantments, something like that. And security in the tunnels had most likely also been increased since his first visit.
But Cat had a plan, and a pretty good one, he thought so himself; to make an entirely new tunnel.
It had taken forever, but slowly he had managed to dig his way to the Burrow from underneath it.
Was it a less than pleasant way to spend his not-hero time? Naturally. But if Cat's plan for the destruction of the underground casino of Twilight City was a success, then it would be all worth it.
Cat was trilled, once he felt his shovel hit rock. He had reached the floor of the casino's hidden vault room. There, he didn't have to worry about anyone being inside it, only the guards outside the door. Unfortunately, stealing money this time wouldn't be a possibility since he couldn't afford to carry a suitcase with money around. He needed both hands free to ruin the Minotaur event.
Mr Rabbit had recently bought himself a Minotaur that he intended to let loose in the tunnels along with five men who owed him money. The one who managed to stay alive longer than the others would be allowed to go free as well as being free of debt. The whole thing would be shown to the Burrow's guests through cameras in the tunnels and they could bet on which one of the poor bastards would make it out alive.
Cat had worked extra hard the last few weeks in order to be done on Minotaur Night. The plan was to sneak in, free the beast and let it run amok in the casino, wreaking the whole place and putting Mr Rabbit out of business, as well as making Gunbunny unemployed.
And he had a secret weapon prepared, just in case.
Cat was ready to hack a hole in the stone floor above him, but he wanted to change first. He opened the bag he had brought with him. Beside the explosives, there was also his tux and mask. He got dressed, ready for some superhero action.
As well as the most embarrassing moment of his career as masked crusader.
After Cat had used the pickaxe to make a hole he could get through, he made his way to the surface... Aaaand then realized that he had made a terrible miscalculation when he planned the digging of the tunnel since he was NOT inside the vault room, but instead stood in the middle of the main hall of the casino. He was surrounded by the staff of the Burrow. The table dealers, the half-naked waiters, the bartender, all of them had a weapon of some sort aimed at the Cat.
"Well..." Cat said. "This is probably the dumbest thing I've done this far."
"Well, well, well." Mr Rabbit left the balcony and walked down the stairs. "Look what the cat just dragged in... itself!"
"Wow, you must have been sitting on THAT one for a while." Cat giggled despite his unfortunate situation.
"You got some nerves showing your face here again, Pinkie."
"Technically, I'm not. Mask, remember?"
"Ladies and gentlemen!" Mr Rabbit turned on his microphone again. "Tonight's program has been changed. Let's see how long the so-called hero of Twilight City can manage to stay alive facing a Minotaur. Place your bets, folks! Place your bets!"
Cat realized that he had no choice but to go plan B.
"Sorry, Rabbit." Cat said. "But I'm afraid I have to close down your joint. And by that, I mean reduce it to a ruin."
Mr Rabbit laughed. "Oho, and what makes you think you can do that?"
"Simple." Cat giggled. "You are outgunned!"
"... I'm sorry, are you trying to be funny or... or... hey, wait a-" Mr Rabbit looked around and realized something unsettling:
Everyone in the room had their weapons aimed at him
