Steve walked back to the living room to join the rest of the Avengers. He was a little uneasy, while Robin seemed to have full confidence in Logan, there was something about the situation that was making him feel odd, he could not place why though. As he walked into the living room Tony eyed him with a buzzed smile in his face.
"She is upstairs with Logan, she said she needed to talk with him for a bit."
"Well looky here, Spangles decided leave his little love dove and join us."
Steve was not very amused, "Pardon?"
"Come on Spangles, don't act all innocent. You barley left Robbie's side. Your feeling jealous aren't you."
"Tony, remember what I said about thinking before you speak?"
"Yeah but I was not a fan of your advice, so I am just not gonna follow it."
"Sit down and shut up Stark." Clint yelled from his seat, then he turned to Steve "So where are Robin and Logan?"
"Upstairs," Steve responded, he was a little edgy, "she said they needed to talk."
"Ah," Clint paused as his lips shifted to a small smile, "So you got a thing for Robin huh?"
Steve cheeks darkened a shade a pink as he shook his head, "No. Tony's just bored with this life and is looking for an outlet."
"That is not true, I am rich enough to never be bored."
Clint ignored Tony's comment, "Im not so sure about that, I've seen the way you act around her."
"I show her respect, I was raised in a time when one had to be a gentleman," he looked over at Tony, "I guess things change with time."
"In all honesty," Natahs inturrupeted, love and emotions were not her cup of tea. Love is for children she always told herself, being a spy emotions did not fit into her world, "how well can we trust Logan? We barley know him and he is a walking weapon."
Bruce spoke from his spot by the window, "Well Robin seems to be close to him, and he did save her from those men at the park all those years ago. Plus they stayed close over the years. That must account for something."
"As long as Robin is being complety honest." she muttered to herself
"Whats that supposed to mean?" asked Bruce
Natasha cringed, no one was supposed to hear that, then she sighed "She did not have a normal upbringing and her story gave me more questions than answers."
"For starters she says her childhood was all a blur but I wonder what could have happened for her to have been left all alone and forced to go to a park to spend the night." She paused for a moment before going on, "And I have never been to Xavier's before but from what I know it is one of the only places for mutants to go and its a very open and welcoming enviorment, so why did she leave?" Natasha stopped for a moment to ponder on her thought, "What could have caused her to leave, Xavier's is usually the place people run to, not from."
"Well, she did end up at S.H.I.E.L.D. they never would have let her in had she done anything before."
"True," added Steve, "they only allow the best."
"Not nessacarily," countered Natasha, "before I joined S.H.I.E.L.D. I did my share of Level A crimes; Clint was sent to kill me. Fortunanly he deciced to help me instead."
"Best decision I ever made. They also tend to check up on their recruits, you know dig into their past to see what they have to deal with."
"But remember she has no past." she reminded the archer.
Tony rolled his eyes, "Natasha why must you be such a debbie downer."
"I'm just being the voice of reason."
"Yeah right. From what I've seen Robin is a temper senstive, outcast-prone, violent pain in the ass but..."
"You only say that because she has sent things flying at you whenever you act..."
"Spangles let me finish! Where was I... Oh yea, violent pain in the ass but I feel like she is trustworthy."
"I am not saying she is not," explained Natasha," but I am just not sure she is being 100% honest. How much do we really know about her? About Logan?"
"Well how much does she know about herself?" asked Bruce
Steve rounded all back together, "Back to the whole Logan issue, I think we ought to keep an eye on him, at least for now. I don't know why but something feels off."
"Yea I know what you mean." said Bruce, "I felt like he was hiding something when he first came."
"Yes, I say we give him space and welcome him but watch him, for our sake and Robin's."
"You're just saying that cause you like her kid."
"Shut up Tony."
Robin sat at the windowsill, her head in her hands. She knew Logan did not just drop by to check up on her, that was not in his nature. When she asked why he was here, he asked her the same question in response. Questions and answers soon poured out of both of them.
"So that's why you came. Not to check on me but on everyone else."
"Robin, you forget that I know you. I know you never leave unless you have to."
"Well for your information I did not leave, I am still a part of S.H.I.E.L.D. And nothing happened, everyone I ever worked with is still intact."
"But you are hiding." She gulped as he said that, "I knew it! Robbie you can't run forever."
"I'm not running. I was placed here! Gosh Logan! You are just like everyone else! I have never let my powers get too out of control, you know that, I thought if anyone knew that it would be you." She leaped from the window sill, anger in her eyes, "Loki almost won and took over the Earth a few months ago and Fury just want to make sure nothing like that ever happends again. Thats why I'm here ok! Thats it!"
She turned to face the window as anger boiled up in her and noise filled her mind. She did not like confrontation, it brought out her bad side. She almost stopped talking to Logan when she left the school three years prior.
She had dealed with being an outcast for too long after the Phoenix incident and she could not handle anymore. She hated all the scare looks and people avoiding her final straw came when she heard people saying they better watch out for her and other comment on how she was just a ticking time bomb set to go off at any 's why she left in the dead of night. Logan had been sitting on his bike by the gate as if he was waiting for her.
"What are you doing here?" she asked
"I had a feeling you would be passing by."
"Are you going to stop me?"
"I'm not your dad kid."
"Like I said when I first met you, I'm not a kid."
"Either way, I anit gonna stop you. Just know I'm here should you ever need me."
She was never one for goodbyes, she just nodded and gave him a quick hug. With that Robin walked past him and fled into the night, leaving her new life behind.
She hardly ever spoke to Logan again after that, she didnt really speak to anyone, not that people tried to keep in touch with her. Suddenly her eyes came back into focus and she took a short breath in, realizing something.
"How did you find me?"
"What do you mean kid?" looking at her oddly
"I mean, I barley contacted you in the past three years, so how did you know where to find me?"
"I do my research. It wasn't all that hard where else were you going to go? Why do you ask?"
Robin did not answer right away, she was frozen. Thoughts flooded into her head as she tried to piece things together. If Logan can find me so easily, who else can?
A/N; Suspense! I hope you enjoyed that. I am on a bit of a writers block mode but hopefully my ideas will click back into gear
