hatman: HatMan, my alter ego and face on the 'net (Default)

Something that's been running through my head on and off for the last couple of days. Not sure why. I'm sure someone else has already written it, and done it better. But hey, just for the fun of it:

Gotham City. Wayne Elementary School. About two decades ago.

"Okay, class, it's time for science. Who here can tell me why things fall?"

A little hand shot into the air.

"Bruce! Can you tell us?"

"It's so we can learn to get back up again."

"Er, no. That's an... interesting answer. But the real answer is gravity..."

Early that evening. Wayne Manor.

"Welcome home, Bruce! Give Dad a hug! Are you okay?"

*sniffle* "I had a bad day at school."

"Oh? Tell me about it."

"I gave the wrong answer in class, and the other kids were teasing me all day. They kept tripping me and laughing..."

"Aww, Bruce. Why do we fall?"

Bruce looked up, his tear-filled eyes filling with anger. "Because gravity pulls us towards the center of the Earth with a constant force of 9.8 meters per second squared times our mass. And don't you tell me otherwise!" He stormed out, disappearing into the shadows of the long hallway, leaving his bemused father behind.
