Yeah, umm... sorry it took, like, forever... See, I had it all written out in a spiral notebook and then I lost it. I've been looking for that darn thing for quite some time now. I have no idea where it is! Anyway, this is my last chapter, so you better enjoy it!
The Many Faces of Robin
The End of the End
Robin opened his eyes slowly. He had a massive headache and felt as though he'd been beaten over the head.
"Okay, I got the spices to brainwash him, although I'm not sure if they'll completely work."
Robin looked around and it all came flooding back to him. He had been beaten over the head. Both the Evils were standing about ten feet in front of him, talking about spices of some sort.
"Great," Robin's Evil said. "Even if they don't work, they should at least confuse him enough so he won't try to pull anything dumb."
"Honestly! All those 'good' folk out there have no brains at all! Evil is the only way to go!" exclaimed Richard's Evil.
"Well, that's what we're here to accomplish," replied Robin's Evil.
"So that's what this is about," Robin said. "You're trying to turn me evil."
The Evils looked startled; almost as if they'd forgotten he was there.
Richard's Evil recovered from the shock first, "That's not what we're trying to do. That's what we will do."
"You see," Robin's Evil explained, "if we can turn you evil, then we won't be pushed to the back of the mind. In fact, we'll be completely in charge! We'll be… we'll be… invincible!"
A loud crack of what sounded like thunder rang through the room followed by the lights flickering.
"Wow," Richard's Evil commented, "that party is really taking a toll on our house."
"You people are nuts!" exclaimed Robin. "Absolutely nuts!"
"Technically, if we're nuts, then so are you…" commented Richard's Evil.
"Anyway," continued Robin's Evil, "once you're evil, no one will be able to stop you and then you could take over the world!"
"Don't you think you're getting a tad bit ahead of yourself?" asked Robin.
"Shut up and let us work," Richard's Evil scolded.
The two of them went back to crushing their spices together. Noticing that he was being ignored again, Robin began to plot his brilliant escape.
Carefully, he used his fingers to begin untying the ropes that were holding him to the table he was on. Without being noticed, he quietly got off the table. However, the only door out of the room was right next to the Evils. They were both hunched over a table, building something and mixing their spices.
Robin began to creep his way around them. Once he was directly behind them, he stopped.
"Damn," he thought to himself. "My foot is stuck!"
Somebody must have spilled something on the ground because Robin's left foot seemed to be glued to it.
"Move it back a little," Robin's Evil said, "we have to cut it in half again."
Richard's Evil grabbed hold of the long wooden board on the table and pushed it backwards, jamming it into Robin's chest.
He bit his lip as he felt the impact of the board.
"Alright, cut it," Richard's Evil ordered.
Robin's Evil cut it in half and the other half fell down.
Having trouble keeping quiet as the board smashed into his foot, Robin went back to trying to yank his foot off the ground. As he yanked, the Evil's began to hammer some other boards together and built something of a box.
"Now that that's done," announced Robin's Evil, "all we have to do is mix the spices."
Switching on a Bunsen Burner, Richard's Evil added a cup of water to the dry spices they'd mixed and began to heat it over the flames.
"Careful!" exclaimed Robin's Evil. "It'll get overheated and—"
Suddenly, the glass container the mixture was in exploded. The scorching hot liquid splashed right onto Robin's crotch.
Unable to hold it in any longer, Robin yelled in pain, "Dang you people!"
Both Evil's stopped cleaning up the mess and looked at Robin.
Quickly Robin pulled his foot out of his shoe and bolted through the door," Now why didn't I think of that in the first place?"
"Get him!" both the Evils cried at the same time.
They grabbed their ray guns and charged after him.
Robin bolted around a corner in the large house, narrowly avoiding the rays the Evils were shooting at him. Quickly flinging open the nearest door, he shut himself inside the room and locked the door. Pressing his ear against the door, he listened as both Evils ran right past the door.
"Geeze, here I am being chased around literally by the demons who live inside me and I hide in the…" he looked around, "bathroom?"
"It looks like you could use some help."
Turning around, Robin saw somebody dressed in pumpkin orange climbing in through the window.
"I'm Brocery!" he announced. "Half Bravery, half Confidence!"
"Okay, how will you help me?" asked Robin.
"You're hiding in a bathroom like a coward, if you think you don't need some extra confidence, you really are crazy," Brocery replied coolly.
"Yeah, I guess you're right…"
With nothing left to say, Brocery dived right into him and Robin felt a difference immediately. Turning around, he was just about to open the door when he heard something cracking. Robin jumped into a fighting stance as the bathroom wall came crumbling to the ground.
Stepping out from the rubble, a strong looking Robin stuck out his hand, "Nice to meet you, I'm Strength."
Robin shook Strength's hand and became astonished when all the bones almost broke.
Strength blushed, "When I'm by myself, it's kind of exaggerated… Well, no time to around waiting!"
Strength dived into Robin, too. A second after he did, two mustard yellow figures came cart wheeling into the room.
"Hey there!" the Richard exclaimed. "We're the Skills!"
"Just about every move or any skill you've ever learned conveniently packed into just two people!" the Robin explained.
"Hurry up and jump inside of me before the Evils arrive! That crash that Strength made was sure to attract them!" Robin exclaimed.
Without another word, both of them cart wheeled inside of him.
Feeling better than he ever had before, Robin began to turn the doorknob, but was once again stopped by the sound of footsteps. Expecting to see someone else who would dive inside of him, he was speechless when he turned around to find a gun pointing directly in the middle of his forehead.
"Don't move or I'll pump your head full of… uh… rays!" Robin's Evil threatened.
Robin put his hands up, "Okay fine, I give, but before you kill me, don't I get to say something?"
"We aren't going to kill you, but please, knock yourself out," answered Richard's Evil.
"Eat the power of goodness!" Robin hollered.
In a second, Robin performed a perfect roundhouse kick, knocking the ray gun square out of Robin's Evil's hands. Another second later, Robin's fist collided with his jaw.
The Evils suddenly looked very angry.
"So you found some other personalities to help you out," commented Robin's Evil.
"Don't think it's going to save you," Richard's Evil said before pulling the trigger on his ray gun.
The ray blasted out and Robin did a back flip to avoid it. However, the ray sliced through his left thigh anyway.
AT THE PARTY
Injury was dancing when suddenly he felt a terrible pain in his left thigh.
He let out a piercing screech, "AWWWWWW! My thigh! I'm dying, dying I tell you!"
Several other personalities looked at him oddly as he collapsed to the ground, withering and screaming in pain.
"Should we help him?" Jealousy asked.
"Nah, he's not really dying," replied Reckless, "and even if he is, I don't care."
Everyone went back to enjoying the party, leaving Injury to 'die' on the ground.
BACK TO THE EVIL'S HOUSE
Ignoring the blood that was coming out of his leg, Robin concentrated on getting the ray gun away from the twins.
Swinging his Bo-Staff around, Robin barely missed Robin's Evil. Instead, he somehow managed to smash it into the chandelier and it came crashing down to the ground. Everything flickered and the power went out. Now the only light they had came from the rays the Evils were repeatedly shooting.
As a ray left another hole in the wall, Robin did another kick, this time successfully knocking the gun out a window.
"Richard!" Robin's Evil called. "We seem to be losing!"
"So I noticed!" yelled Richard's Evil. "Stop you damn complaining and fight!"
Without any light, hitting and dodging relied mostly on luck. Robin made another attempt to hit either one of the twins. Unfortunately for him, they joined hands and Richard's Evil swung Robin's Evil at him. Robin's Evil's feet collided against his chest and Robin fell backward.
Watching as the two high-fived each other, Robin muttered to himself, "Alright, it's time I end this dumb battle."
Leaping up from the ground, Robin ran towards them. Right before crashing into them, he did a back flip and grabbed onto a beam on the ceiling. Swinging back and then forward again, he kicked both of them square in the face. They both flew backwards, hitting the wall.
"You're going to pay for that!" they both snarled.
Pushing up from the ground, they leaped at Robin. Although, rather than hitting Robin, they smacked head first into a black shield. The shield began to close around them, enclosing them inside a bubble.
"Not so fast," Raven floated into the room, followed by the rest of the Titans.
"Hey! Let us out of here!" Robin's Evil banged against the bubble.
"Robin!" cried Starfire as she ran up and crushed him in a hug. "You are okay… what happen to your shoe?"
"Never mind. Anyway, those two were too easy!" commented Robin.
Without warning, everyone that had previously jumped inside Robin jumped out.
"That was interesting," Cyborg said, watching as they all shook Robin's hand and wandered off to do something else.
"Well, it looks like you've captured these losers again," Leadership walked up to them. "By the way, you only have ten minutes until the portal closes."
"What?" exclaimed Beast Boy. "You didn't tell us that it closes!"
"Oops…" Leadership muttered as the Titans sprinted away.
They ran right out the front door of the Evils' house. With the Evils locked up again, anything blocking entrances or exits was gone. Having a particularly difficult time getting through the crowd that was coming out of the mansion, they finally managed to get to Knowledge's small home.
Robin knocked on the door three times.
"It's unlocked," Knowledge called from inside.
Flinging the door open, the Titans all walked inside his living room. Although, it was more like a library than a living room. There were tons of huge bookshelves all around the room. Sitting up on top of one of those bookshelves, was Knowledge.
"Umm…" Starfire began, "we are greatly sorry to disturb you, but—"
"You need to know where the portal is so you can return to your own world, finished Knowledge.
He put his book down and climbed down the ladder to greet them.
"Yeah, so you can help right?" Raven asked.
Knowledge motioned for them to follow him into another room.
As they entered through another door, they found Knowledge opening a large brown wardrobe. Inside was a shiny blue wormhole kind of thing.
"Well, here's the portal," Knowledge said.
"Great!" Beast Boy cheered and made a running leap towards it.
Quickly, Knowledge stepped in front of it, "I don't know where you think you're going! I'm not letting you through here until you answer my question."
"If it's another one of those stupid riddles that make no sense, I'm going to hurt you," Raven threatened.
"Yeah right, I'm way to smart to come up with something like that. My question is based off of common knowledge… okay not really common…"
"Fine, let's here it then," Cyborg said.
"It's a Jeopardy question, here goes: These objects in galactic centers show extremes in size, brightness, and distance."
"What the hell?" Cyborg complained loudly.
"Come on Robin, what's the answer?" asked Raven.
"I've never been on Jeopardy, how should I know?" retorted Robin.
"Well obviously since Knowledge knows the answer and he's a part of you, you should know as well!"
"How do we know that he knows. He could just be pretending to know the answer!"
"Sorry to interrupt your argument, but I forgot to tell you that you only have thirty seconds left before the portal closes."
"Oh no! What if we're stuck in here forever?" cried Starfire.
"What are quasars?" Beast Boy announced.
"You've got to be kidding me…" Raven said.
"Congratulations! You're right and with ten seconds to spare, too!" Knowledge stepped out of the way.
Without another thought, the Titans dived into the portal. In a second, they all fell, once again, on top of each other in the middle of their living room.
"How in the world did you know the answer to that?" Cyborg asked Beast Boy.
"I have my sources… So, who wants pie?" exclaimed Beast Boy.
"You know I do!" Cyborg said as they both raced to the kitchen.
"I better go make sure they don't make a mess out of the kitchen… again," said Raven as she too went into the kitchen.
"I love how after all that, they just get up and walk away," Robin said staring at the kitchen in disbelief.
"So do I get to start calling you Richard now?" Starfire asked.
"Only when we're alone," Robin replied. "I have a feeling we are going to be alone more often than we used to be."
"I have a feeling that you are correct," Starfire said before pulling him into another deep kiss.
"You know, this is really good pie," Cyborg commented.
"Yeah," agreed Beast Boy.
"Hey, I just realized something," Raven said.
"What's that?" Cyborg and Beast Boy asked.
"We never got your arm back, Cyborg."
Cyborg looked down at where his arm should have been and then back at Raven.
Oh, I'm going to cry! That was the last chapter. Sorry people!
Okay, I know, that chapter like really sucked, but I tried, I really did! So please, please, please review my story! PLEASE!
Since this is the last chapter, you can now flame me and I won't be able to do anything about it. Although, the only thing I could do was yell at you back...
Many thanks to everyone who reviewed and everyone who let me know what they think the name of the baby should be! However, I was being like really dumb and as I was pondering over what to name him, I though 'Duh! Why not my second favorite male name?" Which happens to be David. My first is Richard, but I'm not into the whole "let's name the kid after his father"!
At the moment, I don't really have time to reply to everybody who reviewed, so I'm just going to give a big, fat THANKS to everyone!
"Eat the power of goodness!" Robin hollered.
Umm... what the hell was I thinking?
