Chapter 15:

***Ahhh! I'm back! Finally after months of neglecting to get my computer back, I'm back! Huzzah! I don't think you understand how happy I am to be back. Any whom, here is an update for Fixation that I wrote forever ago.

Batman was soon on his way to where this "suspicious" man was located. The Batplane was going a little slower than he would have liked.

"Dammit! Can't this thing fly any faster?" The Dark Knight shouted aloud. 'How could I have let this happen? A psycho killer has an obsession with my son and I just let him take Robin away? What kind of father am I? When I find this son of a bitch, I am going to make him pay.'

For the rest of the flight, the Dark Knight planned exactly what he was going to do to the man as soon as Robin was safe and sound.

*Titan's Tower*

"Man! Our lines are buzzing with new Robin sightings!" Cyborg said to the team.

"How will we know which ones hold the location of our dear friend Robin?" Starfire said anxiously.

"We don't. The best we can do is narrow it down somehow, let's first start with sightings that have been placed in a location more than any other." Raven concluded, and with that the Titan's worked furiously to find a possible pattern that would help find their friend.

*The Woods*

'Why wood Slade show me a bunch of pictures of random strangers?' Robin thought to himself as he went exploring through woods right outside the cabin. 'Oh well, it's not like Slade would lie to me.. He's been nothing but kind and generous to me! I'm so lucky to have such an awesome person in my life!' And with that Robin headed back towards the cabin and Slade.

*The Cabin*

"Slade? Slaaaaaadddeeee!" Robin shouted from outside the cabin.

"Yes?" The man answered back, walking out through the front door.

"Why'd you show me those pictures?" Robin inquired.

"Well because-" Slade started but was interrupted by a noise in the bushes just near the trees to the left of them. "Robin, go inside." Slade instructed calmly.

"Why?" Robin asked.

"Just go. I'll be with you in a minute." Slade reassured the confused Titan. With his instructions, Robin promptly went indoors.

"Well, well, well, if it isn't Batman. How did you find me so quickly? I was sure I had a few more days at least before you would have figured it all out." Slade said mockingly in the direction he had heard earlier heard the noise.

At the mention of his alter ego, Batman walked out of his hiding place to stand in front of his sons' kidnapper.

"What have you done to him?" Batman growled through his clenched teeth.

"Why whatever do you mean?" Slade asked knowing he was only antagonizing the man. He held his hands up as if to say he had no idea what the playboy billionaire was asking.

"You know exactly what I mean, Deathstroke. Robin would never talk to an enemy like that! Let alone listen to one!" Batman shouted quickly, momentarily losing control of his emotions.

"Slade? What's going on- OH MY GOSH IT'S BATMAN!" Robin shouted and ran over to the caped crusader like a 3 year old on a suger high.

"Robin! Get inside!" Slade said in a dangerous tone, but that didn't stop Robin.

"I can't believe it's you! You're so cool! Can I have your autograph? You're so much cooler than Superman!" Robin practically screamed at the man.

"Robin? Don't you know who I am?" Batman asked numbly. 'How can he not recognize me? What did Slade do to him?'

"Of course I do! You're Batman!" Robin shouted in glee.

"Robin, how would you like to come with me and take a ride on the Batplane?" Batman asked knowing what his answer would be.

"Would I ever!" Robin shouted.

"Good, it's parked in that clearing in that direction, see if you can find it." Batman pointed in a direction and tossed Robin the keys to the Batplane and Robin was instantly on his way.

"Robin, I don't think that's a good idea." Slade stated staring venomously at the caped crusader.

"Come on, Slade! Don't worry, I'll be back soon." And with that Robin disappeared among the trees and bushes.

Slade started after him but was immediately stopped by a very angry Batman.

"Where do you think you're going?" Batman asked preparing for a fight.

"I'm going to get what is mine." Slade said obviously frustrated.

"Oh no you're not." Batman stated and charged.

A battle quickly ensued between the two. With Slade's supernatural gifts, he was clearly more powerful than the Dark Knight, but Slade had underestimated the power of an angry father and an entire plane ride of planning. Punch after punch, Batman was merciless to the masked villain. Soon Slade was lying motionless on the ground.

"Don't mess with my son, asshole." Batman said and took his captive to the Batplane in handcuffs. When he reached the plane, he stored the villain in the hidden compartment where Robin would not be able to find him.

"Hey, Robin! I talked to Slade and he said it was ok for you to come on a mission with me. Let's head out." Batman said and started the plane.

"Really? Awesome! He really is an amazing guy." Robin said in admiration.

The Dark Knight bit his tongue and they flew off. The ride mostly consisted of awkward staring, intrusive questions, and an overpowering feeling of admiration, as soon as Robin fell asleep, all was peaceful. Batman looked upon his son and smiled. 'Now all I need to do is get you back to normal and punish the man who did this to you.'

*Titan's Tower*

The Titans were still searching with as much energy as when they started when Batman walked in.

"Well, what happened?" Beast Boy asked impatiently, "Did ya find Robin?"

"I don't know, you tell me." And with that, Batman moved to the side revealing Robin, the Boy Wonder.

"Friend Robin!" Starfire shouted and flew at the young man, but was soon stopped by the caped crusader.

"Wha-" The Titan's started to ask, but were stopped by Robin's blank stare.

"Who are you?"
