Although Carmine couldn’t afford a particle collider, it was no problem for him to buy an expensive suit for Rorschach. After Rorschach put on a high-end suit, his overall appearance improved a few levels again.

“Mr. Rorschach, this police officer Remy is also one of our people, and the others around him have been dealt with.” Carmine followed behind Rorschach and introduced him.

Remy glanced at Carmine, then at Rorschach. He pointed to his neck and said, “If you want to kill the girl inside, you have to knock me out first.”

“We’re here to talk to Ms. Rachel, not to kill people.” Carmine scolded.

Remy shrugged, “It’s best if you don’t cause trouble and tell me when you’re done.”

“Don’t worry. We won’t cause you any trouble.” Carmine patted Remy’s shoulder.

Rorschach just watched the police officers in Gotham City chatting with the criminals and suddenly felt sad for Gordon. This is not an exception. In fact, it is an exception for Gordon, who sticks to justice and refuses to collude with evil forces.

After chatting for a few words, Rorschach took Carmine and several of Carmine’s officers upstairs together.

Rachel’s house.

There was a knock on the door. Rachel opened her eyes in a daze, walked to the door, and saw Rorschach in a suit through the peephole. She almost didn’t recognize him for a while.

“Rorschach!” After recognizing Rorschach, Rachel excitedly opened the door, but she could clearly see the person behind Rorschach the moment after opening the door.

The one standing on the left of Rorschach is the person Rachel will take to court tomorrow, Carmine Falcone and the few people next to Carmine seems to be his follower.

“What…?” Just as Rachel wanted to scream, Rorschach covered her mouth. He turned her head backward, and then he picked up Rachel and walked into the room together.

“Rachel, don’t be afraid. I’ve already talked to Carmine and the others, and they decided to change their minds and will turn themselves to be good.” Rorschach put Rachel on the sofa and explained.

Carmine also cooperated with several gangsters, stood in a row, bowed deeply to Rachel, and said in unison, “Mr. Rachel.”

Rachel looked suspiciously at them and then at Rorschach. She asked Rorschach, “How did you do it? I mean, let them change their minds like instantly?”

“It’s very simple. I just walked into Falcone’s manor and trampled his men to death. Then I asked Carmine, is he willing to turn his back on the dark side and turn to the bright side? He happily answered me that he’ll do that. It’s that simple.” Rorschach shrugged his shoulders.

Rachel was still in a daze. She never thought that a head of a crime family in Gotham City, a social scum and a cancer of the legal system, would change his ways and turn to good.

“Then… will you still smuggle drugs in the future?”

“No, Mr. Rorschach said that when working under him, we can’t do any business related to gambling or drugs. Otherwise, he will send us to God. So, we will transform into a clean business in the future.” Carmine said as he speaks earnestly and has a firm attitude.

She looked at Rorschach again and asked, “Then shall I bring him to court tomorrow?”

Before Rorschach could answer, Carmine said firmly, “If I may say, I have done too many illegal and criminal things in the past, and I must accept the punishment of the law. Also, the Gotham City Court judge charged me a large sum of money for bribery.’

Now she seems to understand what Rorschach said on the pier that day. Gotham City is rotten to the bone. If you want to eradicate the evils in Gotham City, you must uproot the rotten places and dig them all out. Only in this way can it be possible to save Gotham City.

“In addition, Ms. Rachel. I apologize to you for sending someone to assassinate you. This is just my token of apology. Please be sure to accept it.” Carmine took ordered his men to bow to Rachel again and handed over a bank card with both hands.

“There are a million dollars in it. I will personally tell you the PIN number later. Please accept it, Ms. Rachel.”

“Are you bribing me?”

“No, no, this is an apology. Mr. Rorschach said that we must make an apology to you.”

“I can forgive you, but I won’t accept the money. You can donate it to charities.”

After all, Rachel is the daughter of a rich family, so this amount of money doesn’t mean she doesn’t like it. At least it won’t make her go against her own principles. She doesn’t want to accept bribes from a crime family, even if it’s called an apology.

Carmine glanced at Rorschach, who nodded, and Carmine heaved a sigh of relief.

The matter has been settled, and Carmine knew it was time to leave. He took his men and bowed to Rachel again, “Ms. Rachel, if you encounter any problems in the future, you can come to us. No matter what it is, none of us would say no.”

Rachel tentatively asked, “What if I ask you to help me collect the criminal evidence of other families?”

“It’s a small matter. Who do you want to deal with? I mean, which family do you want to collect their criminal evidence from? I will arrange for my men to do it immediately.” Carmine said energetically.

“I haven’t thought of which one to bring to court next. I’ll talk about it when I think about it…” Rachel suddenly felt weird.

After Carmine waited for his men to leave, Rachel stretched out her hand and pinched herself. A burst of pain made her grit her teeth.

“Rorschach, do you know that before I met you? I actually considered that I might encounter an assassination from them. But I was not afraid because I felt that everything I did would improve Gotham City. But lately…”

Rachel was halfway through and seemed not to know how to continue.

Rorschach followed her words and said, “However, I found that relying on you and Gordon can’t change the status quo of Gotham City at all. Because Gotham City is already rotten to the bone.”

“That’s right.”

Rorschach wrapped his arms around Rachel’s waist, put her in his arms, and continued, “Do you know why? Because you and Gordon are too weak to change a city, or even change some part of the city. The world needs countless people to work together.”

“How do you get millions of people to work together?”

“Then there needs to be someone who leads everyone, unifies their thinking, implements the will of the leader, and moves forward for a common goal.”

As for how to unify thoughts, it requires something. Of course, Rorschach would not say that to Rachel.

If Rachel realized something, she didn’t know that a big hand picked her up by the waist and walked towards the bedroom.

“Wait, Rorschach, what are you going to do…” Rachel seemed to understand Rorschach’s intentions and beat Rorschach’s back with her small fist to show her resistance.

“Rachel, I want to go to the bedroom with you to talk about life and ideals.” Rorschach carried Rachel into her bedroom.

Rachel’s bedroom is dominated by blue-colored furniture and items. Rorschach gently put Rachel on the bed and stretched out his hand to unbutton her white shirt.
