Beastboy and Starfire left shortly after Cyborg because they too didn't like or trust Alandra. Raven stayed behind and helped me look for her. By midnight we came back to the tower emptied handed. Raven went up to her room to rest so she could help look tomorrow. I stayed up and watched the cameras we had set up in the city. I was hoping for any sign of Alandra but had nothing. At five in the morning I thought it would be best to go work off some of my frustration on the punching bag, but on my way out of the main room a voice stopped me.

"Giving up on her already? What a shame apprentice. Such a waste of a good time looking for her anyway."

Slade's voice stopped me dead in my tracks. I spun around and walked over to the screen. "Where is she?" every inch of my voice was full of hate and disgust.

"What a rude way to ask apprentice. If you really want to see her then you'll have to meet me at the outskirts of town by yourself. No bringing any of your worthless friends or I might not let her see daylight again." Slade threatened.

"My friends aren't worthless." I muttered under my breath. Slade unfortunately heard this and chuckled.

"They aren't worthless I suppose, that's why they left you to find Alandra all by yourself. You have two hours to make up your mind and meet me there." With that Slade hung up.

That's when I noticed Raven, Cyborg, Beastboy, and Starfire standing behind me. "How much of that did you hear?" I asked not in the mood to get into a fight with any of them.

"Just about all of it" Cyborg said crossing his arms.

"Are you going to go and leave us worthless friends behind?" Beastboy asked looking pissed off. He and the rest of the team didn't hear me mutter.

"Your not worthless any of you, but yes I'm going. I'm not going to let Slade hurt her." I responded heading towards the door.

"YOU'RE AN IDOIT!" Raven shouted. We all jumped and turned to face her. "Robin you're walking right into a trap and you know it. Why be stupid?" she continued.

"Because Raven," I sighed and looked away, "I love her. A lot and I can't lose her. I just can't" I walked out the door not able to stand my team anymore. They knew what was going to happen by meeting Slade. They knew that I knew what I was walking into, but I was doing it anyway. I had to keep Alandra safe.


I had been thrown into a room with a one way exit and an outside lock to my prison. Slade had called Robin and threatened my life to be his apprentice again. I actually didn't hear the conversation but that was the jist of it. Slade walked into my cell happier then usual and I knew that Robin was coming. What I didn't know was that we were meeting him. Until of course Slade grabbed me, chained my hands behind my back and took me outside of the warehouse.
