Last time...

"But we've only known her for two days, and your already going to ask her to join the team?" Cy said again

"Yes." Robin stated "If it doesn't work out we can always dismiss her."

I ran back over to the door and slipped back under the same way as before. I scurried over to Ravens guest room and turneed back into human form. I ran in.

"Raven guess what?" I started to say. But stopped. Before me I saw a horrible sight... One of the people from before was there and in his arms was Raven, unconsious.

On with the story...(BB's POV)

I stopped and stared at the Azrathian warrior, holding Raven, and he just stared back at me. There were two more of them also in the room, at his side, who also stared at me. The air in the room was extremly tense, and it seemed like hours were passing as the time dragged on, not any of us making a move. Finally it was broken when on of the other two warriors, whispered something to the one holding Raven. What they spoke was a strange language, and I did not understand, but as they exchanged a few words, I could feel as if this wasn't going to turn out good.

I figured that the warrior holding Raven was most likely the leader, for the robes that he wore were fancier and cleaner looking than the others. At long last the "leader" said one final word and nodded to the others, then, all turning to me, they attacked me.

Acting quickly I changed into a tiger raptor and lunged at the nearest man, but he was quick and easily dodged me. Before I knew it, another one had appeared behind me, stricking me in the back unto the ground. I heard a load crack, followed by a very sharp pain in the spot were he had struck me. I winced at the pain and looked up to see the leader of the three staring strait down at me. He lifted up this strange wand type thing, that looked fairly old.

He lifted the wand above his head and mumbled a few more inaudible words. The wand began to glow at the end a strange red color. He brougt it down and touched it to my head. The red light seemed to surge through me and I felt myself losing consiouness, but I felt no pain. As I slipped into darkness I looked up. The light got rid of the shadow around the mans fac, reveiling an evil smirk. And then, the world slipped away...
