AN: Sorry it has been such a long time, but I've now finished my SAT's. This will probably be the last chapter and most likely the most confusing. I might do an epilogue for Billy at the end. You can review if you want, but my e-mail isn't working so I probably won't get them.
This chapter's dedicated to everyone who encouraged me, I love you guys. : )
"WHY DO YA 'AVE TO MAKE LIFE SO 'ARD FOR ME!" Billy Numerous yelled. Swiftly brining his heel down on the communicator, causing the specially designed keypad system to smash into a thousand worthless pieces. "But maybe I'll have my fun one last time, what d'ya say?"
"No, please! Not that, anything but that!" Wykkyd's confident demeanour had dissipated; as once again the fear overcame him.
"That's it, beg you whore!" Billy laughed, "Did ya know that the first time I saw ya hair I thought you really were a girl? Not that that woulda been a problem mind." Wykkyd looked up, empty eyes reflected in Billy's goggles. "But before I start I thought you might wanna know somethin'," that was a laugh, Kyd Wykkyd thought, he would be more than pleased to know nothing at this moment in time. "Seemore has a very good mouth on him, when it's put to the right use!"
Something inside Kyd Wykkyd snapped, rage coursed through his veins instead of blood, fear was replaced by bloodlust, and his eyes shone with hate, not tears. Kyd Wykkyd's appearance was also changing; nails became claws, canines became fangs, and two eyes became four. His telepathic voice had now taken on a different tone, almost demonic.
"I am Khaz, son of Huttser, and no-one harms my friends!" Within seconds his claws were at Billy's throat.
"STOP!" A female's voice rang across the room. Kyd Wykkyd's eyes locked with Raven's. His form reverted back to normal, and he stumbled back, fear carved into his face as he stared at his hands. Then he was gone
"I thought I'd find you here." Raven said, her slender form silhouetted due to the sunset. Kyd Wykkyd had no reply and instead continued to stare blankly ahead. "Amazing how much can change in 24 hours isn't it?" She sighed and sat down on one of the crane's girders, next to Kyd Wykkyd.
"I nearly killed someone Raven. I could never be a Titan, be in a team, or be someone's friend." He finished sadly.
"In that case, I'm a nobody." Raven said passing him a new communicator and turned her head to face him. "Tell me."
"Tell you what?"
"Everything and anything."
"My father is the demon Huttser. He tried to take over the world ten years ago with my mother and my older sister. I was five years old at the time. My father wasn't a powerful demon like yours, a human could easily defeat him, and one did." He looked to Raven for conformation to continue, she nodded. "His base of his operations was a place called Gotham City. He planned to destroy it to prove his power, but something went wrong. One night, while my father was up late drawing up plans, a demented person came into our flat. He killed my mother and sister while they slept and murdered my father at the coffee table. He eventually found me and said if I was left alive then I would pose the same threat, that's when he attempted to murder me."
Kyd Wykkyd stopped for a moment, briefly fighting with the clasp on his cape and pulled it away revealing an ugly scar that ran across his throat. "That's why you can't talk isn't it." Raven whispered softly.
"Thankfully one of the old people who lived below us had called the police and they arrived quickly enough to save my life. Within the year I was foisted onto five different care homes, but when all of that failed I was sent to a Junior boarding school which was taken over by the HIVE soon after, and the rest is history." He looked up to see tears streaming down the girl's cheeks and he could hear the sound of explosions below the crane.
"Sorry." She whispered. Kyd Wykkyd looked upset, he hadn't meant to make her cry. He shuffled over towards her slightly, tentatively reaching over and patting her on the shoulder.
"What's your name?" Kyd Wykkyd asked.
"Curiosity killed the cat. It's Raven, you know that already." She replied, turning to face him.
"No it didn't, a car did. I meant what's your full name?"
"Raven Angela Roth." She said, reaching for her hood reflexively as a blush slowly crept across her face. Kyd Wykkyd caught her hand before it could reach her violet hood.
"Angela, what a beautiful name. Better than mine."
"What, Khaz?" Raven asked. Kyd Wykkyd shook his head a red tint spreading across his cheeks.
"No, that's the name of my demon side, my real name is usually a…um…girls name." Raven raised her eyebrows.
"Erin…" Raven smiled and her eyes widened slightly.
"But you're not a girl, are you?" Kyd Wykkyd looked briefly annoyed, but laughed silently and shook his head. Raven let out a small sigh of relief.
"What was that for?" He asked.
"Well, if you were a girl then you might have a few objections with me doing this." She tilted her head towards his and their lips connected in a soft sweet kiss. As she pulled back from the boy she turned towards the bay, not knowing his reaction.
She felt his hand lace with hers. She turned her face to look at him, but he was still watching the sunset. He shuffled closer to her, his shoulder against her own. He turned towards her, his arm snaking around her waist to pull them closer. She then wrapped her arms around his neck, letting her heart take over instead of her head. He leant forward, and their lips touched. He nibbled her lower lip slightly, begging for entrance. She obliged, allowing their tongues to touch, and as they did so, she felt his tongue explore her mouth, savouring each second, as if waiting his entire life for this moment.
The sound of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata coming from Kyd Wykkyd's cloak snapped them out of their reverie. Erin Wykkyd rolled his eyes expressively, and flipped his communicator open. Robin's face appeared on the small screen.
"Kyd Wykkyd, Raven, we need you at the bank. Doctor Light's escaped from prison…again. Robin out." Kyd Wykkyd snapped the small yellow device shut.
"You'll enjoy fighting him," said Raven "he's afraid of the dark."
"So this is how you get your fun, remind me to never get on your bad side." He winked at the empath and threw his cape around them both, disappearing into a black vortex.
Kyd Wykkyd smiled. He had good friends, a good home and it felt a lot better fighting crime than committing it. He had tasted justice…and oddly enough, it tasted like fruit tea.
