So this is my first story (on my own account). I did this as a project for a writing program I'm in and I decided to publish it. Hope you like it :D
Btw, I do not own Robin/Dick Grayson, Batman, or Babs
What am I doing?
Dear Diary? (Do guys have diaries?),
I'm not sure what to write. I don't even know why I'm trying to write something. I shouldn't be writing at all. If this were to somehow fall into the wrong hands, I'd be in serious trouble. Not that this would ever fall into the wrong hands. Bruce is likely to burn this thing the second he finds it. Babs gave me this journal so that I can, "document my feelings and cope with them." It's understandable why she'd want me to. Gotham is forever haunted by murderous psychopaths and countless other evils. And every day I face those evils.
By day, I'm Richard Grayson. The almost carefree 13 year old ward of billionaire playboy, Bruce Wayne. The evils I face are bullies and heartless socialites, along with the occasional kidnapper. But by night, I'm not just some celebrity teen. I'm Robin the Boy Wonder. The cackling, butt-kicking partner to Gotham's Dark Knight. Together, we're the Dynamic Duo. We keep Gotham safe (even if they deny it sometimes). Every night I risk my life for this God forsaken city. Even worse, I risk losing the man I've come to know as a father…
I have no idea why I wrote that all down. Bruce is gonna kill me…but it feels kinda nice to write. I'm not allowed to tell people this kind of stuff. Not because Bruce won't let me (even though he won't), but because I won't let myself. It's not worth the risk. But I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Like I don't have to keep everything bottled up inside. Maybe Babs was right. Having this...thing (not calling it a diary) will actually be good for me. And what Bruce doesn't know won't hurt him, right?
That was entry number one. I know it was short but it was only an intro. Please review, I love feedback. I'll update as often as possible. Thanks for reading :D
