Epilogue Part Two: The Demon Hero Razgriz
Beast Boy and Raven made their way through the hallways to the roof access. Beast Boy took a chance and gently grasped Raven's hand, forgetting to see if anyone was around. She didn't object, instead she intertwined their fingers together.
Beast Boy smiled when he noticed that her head wasn't on a swivel, "So… Why do you think Robin wants us all to meet him on the roof?"
"I don't have a clue… I just hope he isn't going to out us in front of the team." She tightened her hand around his for a moment.
"You think he found out?"
"Well he is a detective, remember? Probably rubbed off from his mentor… It wouldn't be to hard for him to piece things together."
"Yeah, you're probably right." He let out a nervous snicker.
After rounding a few corners and spotting the roof access they let go of each other's hands. They stopped before opening it, Raven turned to look Beast Boy in the eyes, "Gar… I think we should tell them soon… Maybe not today, but soon. Well, if Robin doesn't do it for us anyway…"
"Yeah, I think we should too. I mean… I think we're ready too." They both smiled at each other and got lost in a gaze for a short time. They had to snapped themselves out of it.
Beast Boy noticed Raven was holding something under her arm, "Hey, what's that book?"
"It's a collection on Demon legends and myths, I was going to show something to Razgriz but I guess it'll have to wait until later."
He nodded and opened the door for her, and together they headed up to the roof. The rest of the team was already there, with Razgriz standing ahead of them near the roof's edge.
Robin, "Nice of you two to join us. You're late."
"Yeah, sorry… uh… couldn't find my gloves." Beast Boy said, giving a sly chuckle.
"And I had to find him." Raven said, pointing at Beast Boy with a plain look on her face. He flashed her a big grin in response, "So… What's this about Robin?" he felt a knot tighten in his stomach.
Robin turned his head around, "Razgriz?"
She took a deep breath, "My friends! I am glad you can all be here… I have something I must tell you…"
Starfire stepped towards her, "Friend Razgriz, are you alright?"
"Yes Star, I'm… well no, I suppose I'm not. I…" She paused to gather her courage again, "I have to leave the city… I don't know when I'll be back… I mean… I---"
Beast Boy hopped towards her and wailed, "Wha?! You're leaving?? But-but… You still haven't beaten Super Ninja Fury 4 with Cy and me! And… Wait, why are you leaving?"
She giggled and ruffled his hair, "I was getting to that." She let out a sigh and turned to look out at the city, crossing her arms, "I'm needed all around the world my friends…I can still feel it…the Evil isn't just here it's everywhere. And I have the power to stop it, little by little if I have to." Tears began to slide down her cheeks. Then she felt a familiar hand on her shoulder, Raven's.
"I…we understand, Razgriz. Just be careful out there. Please." The second she finished she was enveloped in a hug from Razgriz. She returned it gratefully.
One by one she hugged her first and best friends goodbye.
After Raven was Beast Boy, "You're coming back right? Right?"
"Yes, of course." She gave him a smile through her tears, "Someday."
Then Cyborg, "You take care of yourself, Razgriz."
"I surely will, Cy."
Next was a bone crushing tearful hug from Starfire, Razgriz didn't mind it in the least, "Oh, newest friend, I am saddened to see you go and wish it wasn't so."
"I know Star, and so am I. But I have to." Starfire gave her a nod and one last backbreaking squeeze before letting go and showing a reassuring smile.
And last was Robin. His hugs were as somber as he was, and a rarity at that. Still, she savored the moment as deeply as she had with the other four. "Call us if you ever need anything. You'll always have a place here at the Tower."
"Thank you, Robin." She took a few steps back and looked down at the communicator in her hands and clutched it tightly, "I will not forget you my friends. I am sorry that I have to leave, deeply sorry."
"We know Razgriz, we're sorry too. It's great having you here."
She nodded, sniffled, and wiped her tears as she turned around to grab her bag. "Raven, Beast Boy… I wish you the best, all of you. I will return, I promise!" And before it got any harder than it already was for her, she jumped off the edge of the roof and spread her wings, catching the dusk's wind in her wings and soaring upwards. As she flew, her black wings began to shine and sparkle. In her wake she left a trail of sparkling light. She smiled through the tears for her cause, for her friends.
Back on the Tower's roof they all watched her leave, staring up at the brilliant trail she left behind. Raven stepped up to the edge of the roof. She cracked open the book she had with her and began to read:
eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath.
"The demon soars through dark
Fear and death trail its shadow beneath
Until men united wield a hallowed saber
In final reckoning, the beast is slain.
"As the demon
sleeps, man turns on man
His own blood and madness soon cover the earth
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light."
"When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself. First as a dark demon. As a demon, it uses its power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns..."
She closed the book, "Excerpts from an ancient text… She'll be back. I'm sure of it." Beast Boy was now at her side and gave her a comforting hug. The others were a few feet behind them.
She looked into his eyes and smiled, then turned around with him to face their friends. She took hold of his hand, tightly, "Guys… We have something to tell you."
Well, here we are... The End. I always hate it when a story ends, especially when I'm the one ending it. I guess that's why I kept writing after my BBxRae fanfic. Maybe someday I'll pick back up on Razgriz, years later when she returns to her friends.
Thank you all for following Razgriz on her adventure with the Titans, her first and best friends. I hope you have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed writing.
