Bette had spent the night with a handsome boy whose name she had forgotten. She overheard him talking to someone, caught that it was his birthday and congratulated him. She didn't like that she was older than him—and promised she wasn't much older. But he already knew her name and age, and she realized why when she saw a yearbook on his table: they both went to Gotham Academy. She wanted to stay with him longer, but she had to go to work.[3]
