Chapter Two: Passing of Shadow

"Hel-" he began, before he was interrupted. Her black eyes piercing him with a stare.

"I've come to see the one you call… Robin."

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Robin gaped… here was a young girl with a sword at the ready saying she wanted to see him? His mind raced, thinking whether or not this girl was a threat.

"Robin…" came a steady voice from the door. He looked up. "I am no threat… at least not to you…" she said, walking past Beast Boy and toward where he was. He rose.

"How did you…?" he asked her curiously. She held a hand up to silence him.

"That will be explained later. I believe introductions are necessary…" her grey eyes shifted around the room again.

"Yes… uh…" she had made him nervous and a smirk flowed across her lips for a brief moment as she realized this.

"This is…" he began, indicating Beast Boy. Again, she held up her hand to stop him.

"Beast Boy…" she finished for him her eyes shifting again. "Raven… Starfire… Cyborg…" she turned to face him again. "and you... are Robin…" she finished calmly placing her left hand upon her hip smugly.

"How did you do that? And who are you?"

"Tthe answer to your second question will be revealed first… but I want you to hear it from the true me." She took a few meaningful step backward, looked him straight in the eyes (or mask) and began to change… she lowered her black cloak to reveal her black hair… which was slowly fading into brown wavy locks… her eyes, they too were changing to brown… dark rich brown… her dress suddenly changed into red leather pants and a black shirt, which were connected at the waist to form a suit, a super suit. She waved a hand, and her hair was tossed into a French braid until it reached halfway down her back.

"Who are you?" Raven asked. The girl turned her gaze toward Raven.

"My name… is Ricochet."

We dance round in a ring and suppose,

But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.
