College has been keeping me busy… I don't own teen titans or any other characters in this fanfic…you know the story.
Robin climbed over the edge of his balcony. Winding up his grappling hook into his belt, he looked at the buildings around. No one was out at this hour. Seeing this, he called out over the edge "It's clear." Starfire appeared over the edge and set down lightly on the balcony. A small green bird followed her and turned into Garfield as it landed. "This is where you live?" she asked. Robin nodded. "Yeah, for now. That might change soon though, depending on what happens with the team."
When they had come back from the island, Victor had said that he had stuff to do, and Raven just went off as usual, so only Garfield and Starfire had come back with him. This was probably a good thing, since Robin couldn't figure out how he would have gotten Victor up to his apartment. He turned on the lights as he walked in, waiting for the other two to ender before closing the balcony door.
Starfire looked around. "This dwelling, is it common among your people?" Robin nodded. Yeah, relatively. A lot of people live in apartments like this. Some want larger houses of their own, but for just me, this is good enough. Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and an area to relax." Starfire nodded. "It is understandable. Your planet is so crowded, it is a good thing you don't need much room." She looked around. "Where is this person that you wish me to meet?"
"Well, he's most likely halfway across the world right now. But I have my communicator here, so we can talk to him that way." Beast boy jumped up and down. "Oh wow! Do I get to meet batman too? Sweet!" Robin stopped. He'd almost forgotten about Garfield. "Erm…I'm actually gonna say not right now. This is kinda important, and knowing him, he's pretty busy. Maybe another time. Do you think you could, y'know, wait outside? We might be discussing things that well…can't be heard by other people."
Garfield visibly drooped. "Aww man…you get all the fun…" Robin rubbed his eyes and said "Y'know what? Why don't you sit outside the apartment looking like a fly or something, and come in and warn us if anyone comes? I don't want anyone else overhearing anything that could tell them who I am." Garfield perked up. "Okay!" and he immediately turned into the small green mouse and skittered under the door.
Robin watched him go. He felt kinda bad about brushing him off like that, but now wasn't the time for Garfield to have another moment like in the alley before hand. Turning back to his desk, he pulled out his communicator and hooked it up to his computer. Since there'd be the two of them talking, he needed a slightly bigger screen. He quickly punched in the frequency for the bat cave.
"Yes, Master Robin?" the face of an old kind faced man filled the screen. Robin smiled. It had been a while since he'd seen Alfred. "Hi Alfred. I need to talk to Bruce." He said. "He's at the station right now. Would you like me to redirect the communication?" Replied Alfred. "Yes, that would be great." Said Robin. Alfred looked at Starfire, who had remained silent in the background. "A most attractive young lady Master Robin. Do treat her with respect."
With that, the screen blanked and flickered as the communication was authorized by the several security programs protecting the Justice League computers. After a few seconds, the connection secured, and the masked face of Bruce Wayne came up. "Robin. You have something to report?"
"Yes" he replied. "Remember how you said our satellites picked up something unusual entering the atmorsphere?" Batman nodded. "Yes. You found the object?"
"Well" replied Robin. "Not exactly an object. We have a visitor." Batman raised an eyebrow. "A visitor?" he then noticed Starfire standing in the background. "I see. Does she speak our language?" Robin nodded. "Yes. Starfire, come here. This is batman."
Starfire came forward to the communicator and bowed her head slightly "I am pleased to meet you Batman." Batman smiled slightly. "Welcome to earth Starfire. I have to ask right now, why are you here? Most of earth isn't aware of the existence of life outside our planet." Starfire looked slightly nervous. "I wish to be able to stay here for a while. This world is…intriguing and I would like to learn more about it. Since humans seen similar to tamaranians, I thought it would not be too much of a problem to fit in here."
Batman nodded. "It is possible. Where exactly are you from?" "My homeworld is that of tamaran." Batman turned to the side. "John. Come here. Have you heard of a planet called tamaran?" "I have" replied the Green lantern as he walked in to view. "Why do you ask?" He looked at the view screen and his eyes widened slightly. "I see. Welcome Starfire."
Robin frowned slightly. How didthe Green lanternknow Starfires name? Before he could say anything, the Green lantern asked "So, why did you say you came to earth?"
"I find it interesting, I would like to know more about it. Also…" she replied. "There are certain…things that I would like to take a break from.in my life." John nodded. "I see. Well, I don't think there will be too much of a problem, just as you don't cause any trouble." She smiled. "thank you. I appreciate this."
Suddenly sirens in the station started going off. Batman looked at another monitor off screen and frowned. "We've got a problem. I'm sorry, but we're going to have to cut this short." Robin nodded and the screen went blank. "Well." He said. "If the Green lantern says you can stay, I guess that you can stay."
A few hours later….
Batman turned as the Green lantern walked into the control room. "That was fast" he said. John shrugged. "Prison breakouts never really last long when Clark arrives. I'm just glad none of the guards were hurt." Batman nodded. "Oh, by the way." He asked. "I don't recall telling you the Tamaranians name. How did you know who she is?" John chuckled slightly.
"That was the crown princess of Tamaran. I've seen her picture at the Lantern headquarters." Bruce raised an eyebrow. "I see. And I'm guessing she hasn't told Robin this?" "Most likely not" John replied. "Tamaran politics are a bit stormy right now. That's probably why she's here, to get away from it." He turned to leave but then stopped. "Oh by the way, next time you talk to Robin. A little advice for him. Whatever he does, getting her angry is the last thing he wants to do."
