*I DON'T OWN ANY OF THE CHARACTERS!
Batgirl started pulling up every ounce of information the Titans had on the villains in Jump City. Taking a quick loo, she sorted all of the villains into two categories. The door opened and Beast Boy walked in. watching what she was doing, he became curious.
"What are you doing," Beast Boy asked.
"I went through all the information you have on every villain in Jump City and split them up into two groups," she explained without turning around.
"What kind of categories," Beast Boy asked, walking over.
"Annoying or dangerous and it was actually quite simple. Many of your villains fall into the 'annoying' category such as Mad Mod, Control Freak, Killer Moth, the Puppet master and etc.," Batgirl explained.
"So who all falls into the 'dangerous' category," Beast Boy asked.
"Villains like Slade, Trigon, Red X, and the Brain," Batgirl read the names off the screen.
"Do you have any idea who could've taken Batman," Beast Boy asked.
"It's most likely one of the villains on the 'dangerous' list. Trigon is an interdimensional being so he couldn't have done it. So that narrows it down to Slade, Red X, or the Brain," Batgirl answered.
Beast Boy contemplated what Batgirl had just told him. From what he knew of Red X he wasn't the kidnapping type…the Brain liked to play games and get in people's heads, so he could've done it. But Slade was probably more likely because he was obsessed with Robin and a kidnapping of his old mentor would definitely be Slade's way of trying to get to Robin. Beast Boy's thoughts were interrupted by Batgirl's unexpected question.
"Did you really mean what you said…that Batman was cool," she asked quietly. Beast Boy smiled.
"Of course I did. I've always admired him…and his protégés. The way you guys kick butt is legendary…even to my old team the Doom Patrol," Beast Boy answered. Batgirl laughed but it sounded more like a held back sob. She collapsed to her knees, tears streaming down her face. Walking up, Beast Boy pulled Batgirl into a comforting hug.
"Do you think we'll find him," she asked through her tears.
"Of course I do. You and Robin are great detectives and I know you won't stop until Batman's found. But you don't have to do this alone…we're here to help you in any way we can," Beast Boy said smiling. Batgirl sniffled and looked up at Beast Boy. Leaning in, she kissed him on the cheek.
"Thank you. I've just been so worried about Batman…I guess I still am," she confessed.
"Why don't you go to your room and rest? We'll let you know if anything comes up," Beast Boy offered. Batgirl nodded and stood up. Heading for the door, she took one last glance at Beast Boy then left. Robin walked in a few seconds later.
"You did good Beast Boy," he congratulated.
"Huh," Beast Boy asked confused.
"Batgirl…you helped her calm down and reassured her that everything would be alright…then you sent her to rest. That was a job well done," Robin congratulated again.
"I know what it's like to worry over teammates who had taught you everything you know," Beast Boy said.
"Trust me…I know what it's like too. Batman took me in…after my parents died. He raised me and taught me how to fight…how to be a great detective. Batgirl and I will use what he has taught us to find him, I'm sure of it," Robin said.

Batman screamed as volts of electricity coursed through his body once again. Slade withdrew the device. He watched as Batman passed out from the pain inflicted. For two hours he had been administering small amounts of electricity to Batman. Not enough to kill him, but enough to put him in a considerable amount of pain. Walking over, Slade hit the 'stop' button on the video camera he had been using. Videotaping his every 'session' with Batman, Slade hoped he could use these tapes as leverage to get Robin to return to him. If that didn't work…well at least he got to have a little fun.
