Johnny hadn't thought it was possible, but security at Blackgate was actually worse the second time around. This time though he wasn't going for a grand entrance. Johnny teleported, made his way through the facility with little trouble, and made his way to his current destination. So far he had been fortunate in that nobody noticed him. He approached the cell, specifically designed to keep things warm for its occupant.

"Cameron, my boy, we really have to stop meeting like this."

Cam looks up in sudden shock, then relief...then his head falls embarrassed.

"Johnny man. I blew it."

He's REALLY glad to see Sorrow, he just feels like he let his old team down.

Arggg...so embarrassing.

"Batman. He got me to squeal on a job. Didn't even lay a finger on me."

Bat-browbeaten. So shaming.

"Arkham. He basically said he could trump things up that I'd be declared nuts. Said I'd get shipped off to their 'experimental treatment' unit."

He looks over to Sorrow with a bit of apology in his face.
"I really don't want to be some Arkham crank's lab rat. I've heard stories about guys like Hugo Strange."

He lets go a sigh. Sorrow was one of the bad asses of the Injustice Society. He might be nuts, but Icicle had mad props of respect for him.

"So...give it to me. How much do I suck?"

He's nodding. Sorrow's basically saying what he's thinking.

"I know I know I know.." Artemis was going to roast him. He could already hear her calling him 'Bat-bitch'.

Head in his hands.
"I'm just pissed at myself. I figure I owe our people for fuckin up our rep. I got cocky and walked into this Gotham mess while lookin down through my nose at it."

He looks back up to Sorrow.
"Look John, I realize I screwed up. I should have toughed it out in Arkham till someone busted me out. I'm askin for your forgiveness. I'm asking all of the I.S. for it."

There is almost nothing in the world that really matters to Cam, but the Society is on the top of that tiny list.

He looks around the sweltering room.
"Could you get me outa here?"

He mulls that question over.

"Well part of me just wants to get the hell out of Gotham...but I do have employers that are paying me."

His jaw shifts back and forth. He really needed to remember how much he hated Gotham in the future.

"Advice?"

"Eeesshh... Well they outlined a pretty specific 'talk to the cops and we'll get your loved ones' spiel. That doesn't really bug me since the only folks that really matter to me could eat 'em for breakfast."

Cam momentarily entertains the notion of Sorrow cooking Mindancer's brain into oatmeal while lighting the rest on fire, or Zard getting nuts with the 'Avadakedavera'. Even Artemis would turn it into her own version of "The Most Dangerous Game". He got the willies just wondering what Ragdoll might respond with.

"The threats I can handle. I'm mostly trying to think of the best course to take to do damage control. I don't want my fuck up to come back on the Society's rep."

Relief.

He wasn't concerned about Sorrow leaving him there, the Injustice Society didn't play that way. It's why they've survived so long. His real worry had been the reaction to what he saw as letting them down. He silently swore to himself he'd redeem dropping the ball while brandishing their rep.

Standing up he mopped his brow.

"Thanks man. Really, thank you."

Time to get out of this stinking sweat lodge.

"Yeah, it's a promise. Let's get out of this rat trap."

He'd have to figure out getting Shrapnel out of here on his own later. The Society had done enough for him already. He liked Shrapnel well enough, but Sorrow and the rest didn't owe him anything.

Johny Sorrow, the patron god of awesome.

Tempted to crawl into the fridge actually. He feels a little dizzy from the prolonged heat of his specialized cell.

"You know if I was a religious guy, I'd be building a Sorrow alter right about now."

He grabs a soder cola and does his best not to just down the whole thing immediately.

"Sorry if I'm a little funky." he apologies.
"They weren't keen on letting me have access to a shower in that armpit of a cell."

Gratefully taking a seat, he sips at the remainder of his drink.

"So, I am really grateful but was there anything else that brings you to Gotham?"

"Anything I can help you with?"

Cam doubted it, but he'd be there if there was.
