Chapter 8: Questions
Raven stretched languorously, blinking the sleep out of her eyes. She had slept surprisingly well Slade had a nice bed. Suddenly she became aware of the arm slung over her waist. Twisting her head to look over her shoulder, she saw Slade stretched out, the blankets in a tangle around him. Obviously he was not a peaceful sleeper. She looked down at the arm almost possessively draped over her. And had no respect for personal boundaries. So that was why shed been so warm; Slade was a cuddler.
Despite herself, Raven began to giggle. Then laugh. A cuddler! Slade! Its not something she wouldve imagined him as. As she laughed, her body jiggled, waking the object of her amusement. His head jerked up with a sleepy sound of confusion this made Raven giggle more. What on earth are you laughing about, woman? he mumbled. He suddenly noticed where his arm was and almost sheepishly removed it. Sorry bout that.

Chapter 7: For Raven
Robin fell backwards with a thump onto his bed. The tower was quiet; it was around two in the morning, and Robin had been, not surprisingly, sifting through every tiny clue as to where Slade had taken Raven. Nothing new. Finally Robin gave into his exhaustion, but even now, lying on his bed, sleep evaded him.
With a sigh of frustration, he took his mask off, chucking it onto his bedside table. Sometimes he was extremely grateful for the mask that hid his bright green eyes; if the titans saw him without it, they would be able to see how worn out he was. Dark rings shadowed his sockets and the whites of his eyes were webbed with red squiggly lines. No doubt they would force a sleeping pill down his throat and tie him to his bed. But he couldnt have them worrying about him it was Raven they needed to worry about.
Robin missed her. She was the sane one around here. Cyborg and Beastboy were great friends and so was Star, but they all

Chapter 6: Sleepless Nights
Ravens eyes travelled rapidly across the pages of the book. She was surprised to find that Slade owned so many good ones. Since when did he have books anyway? Raven just couldnt picture Slade reading. It seemed too soft. The one she was reading in particular was not something she would ever have imagined him owning. It was a mythical story of love and pride, with magic and dragons all incorporated to make an intricate and beautiful tale. This is what Raven did; there was nothing that could take her away from everything like a book could. When she was reading, she could put all her problems aside and lose herself in something completely different and wonderful. It was so much better than reality sometimes. And this is what she did now. Blocking out the rest of the world, she buried herself within the pages of the tale. In fact, Raven was so engrossed in the book that, from her position in the bay window, she didnt notice her silent spe

Chapter 5: Curiosity
Slade threw some cheese, ham and bread onto a plate. Going over to the fridge, he pulled out a bottle of apple juice and put it on the table next to the plate. He still felt strange being back in his childhood home. He remembered that he had never been allowed in the kitchen; his parents were very rich, and they had always treated him like he was an annoyance. No matter what he did, he was always under their feet and irritating them in some way. As a boy, all hed ever wanted was for his father to smile at him. Just once. And maybe with a hint of pride but hed grown up, and he one day understood that his parents would never love him.
When they died, he was left the house since there was no will. He had hidden Raven here because it was so remote and so unlike him, the villain the Titans knew. He also knew the area back to front, so Raven would never be able to get far should she manage to escape. Which was unlikely. The Titans wouldn

Chapter 4: Hiding the Emotions
Robins green-gloved fist slammed down on the table, making everything on it shudder. Where is she? he ground out. Theyd looked everywhere. Everywhere. Raven wasnt in the city. Someone was trying very hard and succeeding to keep them from finding her. The other question that had been plaguing him for the past weeks was who had taken her?
Slade Robin muttered under his breath. Only he would know how this would drive Robin mad. Slade had outwitted and beat Robin so many times that Robin had been driven to obsession. And this long period of getting nowhere would drive him crazy. Slade knew it.
The rest of the team lay sprawled around the sitting room, examining maps of the city or the documents on the lairs of all their enemies. Robin was standing in front of the huge screen at the front of the room, going over security cameras from all over the city.

Chapter 3: Nowhere to Run
After a week of captivity, Raven was beginning to chafe severely. Slade allowed her such little time out of the little room she was allotted; for most of the days she was locked up with nothing to do. Frustration mounted; she wished that she could use all this spare time to meditate, but that of course was impossible. The food he brought her was hardly satisfying either.
Almost as if called, the key suddenly scraped in the lock, making Raven jump. It swung open and Slade entered, balancing her breakfast of runny eggs, dry toast and watery coffee in his hands. He made to shove the door closed with his wide shoulder, but Raven, struck with a desperate impulse, darted forward slipped out the door, slamming it behind her. As she turned to run, she heard the metal plate and mug crash to the floor as Slade dropped it to come after her.
Without hesitation, she sprinted down the long, shadowy corridor. Halfway down, she heard the heavy door cra

Chapter 2: Prisoner
Raven drifted, weightless, in the endless darkness. She could sense the light, and struggled towards it. It evaded her, but her spirit continued to fight for it. Slowly, she began to grow aware of the soft surface her body was laid on. Her eyes fluttered open and she found herself looking up at a plain, dark, wooden ceiling. Where was she? What happened to her?
Ravens violet eyes slowly closed in on themselves as a splitting headache began spreading across her skull. And she groaned as she remembered what had happened. That foul-smelling cotton. She must have had a bad reaction to the chemical. Damn you Slade! she thought.
The thought of Slade had her sitting up. She groaned again as her head throbbed. Where was he? Where was she? She looked around and found that she was in a small cell-like room, with only the bed she had been lying on. She saw two wooden doors; one was heavy and bolted the other thin and warped, and ajar. She went to

Chapter 1: Feelings
Raven sat on her bed, back against the wall, book propped up on her knees. It was one of her favourite books, one that she was reading for the third time, but for the first time, she just couldnt concentrate. She would get to the bottom of a page and realise that she didnt remember what she had just read. Her eyes were reading, but her mind was somewhere very different
RAVEN! Raven jumped as Starfire burst into her room.
Star! Havent I told you enough times that you have to knock?
Oh, forgive me, friend, but I have the most wondrous news that I simply had to tell you immediately!
Stifling a sigh, Raven put her book aside. What is it then? she said resignedly.
Robin has asked me to do the going out with him! Starfire burst out. She grinned at Raven eagerly, her eyes alight. Is it not wonderful? Apparently, I am now his girlfriend and he is my boyfriend bu
