-Chapter 1-

A cold silence hung in the still air of the wide-open dark room. One screen was alit with just enough light to reflect off the one watching it. Repeatedly, different clips piled together played through a continuous loop in the silence. The man in the dark watched, his sharp eye following one in particular of the group that was recorded.

A soft creaking of an opening heavy door broke the silence like a shrill scream. Light, soft but bright enough to see by, filled the room, framing the shadow of the elderly man dressed in white standing in the doorway. "Sir…" The man spoke softly, worry lining his even tone. "You have been down here for far too long… Have you not watched that enough already?" Disapproval normally kept hidden had started to show. This topic was obviously something the two men held very different opinions on.

The man at the screen shifted, leaning back and looked to his hand that held two gold bracelets. He traced his black gloved thumb over the gold seeing the many intricate markings carved gracefully along the banding. "These would work on her still…" He said as though planning to pick the conversation up where it had left off hours ago. "I'm sure of it."

The man in white sighed. "But, is it worth the risk, sir? If you fail, you run the risk of her killing you." He folded his arms over his chest. "And this time there will be no one in Hell willing to bring you back." Why could he not just leave this alone? Could he not see that the risk was not worth the reward?

The man in black rubbed his face with his other hand, wishing his old friend could understand. How could he not see that the reward was worth the risk? "It is either I do this, or I go mad." He glanced to the man in white.

"Then go mad, sir. I can deal with you crazed but alive." The man in white was firm on his thoughts wishing that it would settle the matter.

"I can't." The taller man said as he stood up, clicking off the screen, leaving the light from the doorway all that separated his body from blending into the darkness. "These thoughts and desires are ripping me into pieces." He pocketed the bracelets and walked towards his friend. "I can't stand not acting on them any longer."

The older man shook his head and turned around, walking back the way he came with other, following behind. "I do not approve of this, sir…" He shook his head once more. "Not at all…"

"You don't have to approve. I'm sure I do things you don't approve of all the time."

"No sir, you do things I find acceptable. What you are planning to do to this girl… THAT I do not find acceptable." A hard tone covered his words showing his disdain for the topic.

"I have not yet decided whether I will go that far with her or not." Said the other man with a sigh. His face cou6ld now be seen, covered by a half-black and half-orange mask.

"Which makes the risk even greater and should truly outweigh any small reward from such recklessness!" Exasperation filled the older man's voice, expressed as much as he would allow. His friend was a man ruled by reason and logic, so why was it so hard for him to see his logical point of view on this issue?

Slade chucked, clasping his old friend on the shoulder. "And this is where we differ, Wintergreen. To you, the reward is small but to me, I find it great enough to risk much for."

"I do not approve, and I will not help you with this." Wintergreen said keeping firm on his position.

"That's fine; I wasn't going to ask you to." Slade walked past Wintergreen, going to his own room. "I won't need any help for this…" He said more to himself as he left his friend.

Wintergreen sighed, turning to go on his way. "Come back alive sir…" He whispered in vain to the empty air.


Raven sighed as she collapsed into her large bed. She stretched out feeling her sore body crack and pop in protest to continued movement. She lazily kicked off her cloth boots while her tired fingers found the clasp on her belt and cloak. Once free of such things, she crawled up to her pillows wanting nothing more than to feel their soft embrace.

For the past week, all the Titans had been running on very little sleep. It seemed every super powered criminal had decided to show up one after the other in Jump City. Just as soon as one villain was in jail, they were being called about another. She swore all five Titans combined maybe had three hours of sleep every night for the last five days straight. At this point, Raven did not even care if the city caught on fire. She would deal with it in the morning after a good night's rest.

Her head nestled against her pillow, Raven was asleep in seconds. The same could be said of her friends, who crash heavily in their rooms. Not even a bomb could wake them from the level of sleep that was claiming them all.


Slade double checked and even triple checked that he had everything set up just right. Another glance at the clock told him that the Titans had been back at the tower for an hour. He smiled as everything was going according to plan. He had put out word for the smaller super powered villains of Jump City to make the Titans very busy this week and was glad it was met with such enthusiasm.

He glanced down at his hand, pulling the two bracelets out of his pocket and placing them back in one last time. 'Alright… Time to begin…' He fiddled with a device that looked a lot like a wristwatch but was not just a watch. A few clicks and setting checks later for the location points, his teleporter was ready. Slade took one last deep breath and pushed the button, teleporting himself to Titan's Tower, more specifically Raven's room.

Slade stood in the dark shadows of Raven's room as still as a statue while he quickly scanned the room. The only light in the room came from her large bay window that was only half covered with a curtain, letting in just enough soft moonlight to bathe her bed. He smirked slightly beneath his mask as he saw Raven passed out on her bed, not even under her blanket. 'Must have been very tired…' He thought thinking everything was going according to plan.

Without making a sound, Slade slowly approached Raven's bed, taking the bracelets out of his pocket. He focused on keeping calm knowing that Raven could wake up at any point if his emotions or thoughts were too strong. He could feel his heart starting to race the closer he came to her. Raven shifted in bed causing him to pause in his approach. She groaned and stretched, her arms extending out beneath her pillow before she shifted to lie on her back.

Slade felt a slight amount of relief as she went still once more. If she woke up too soon, tired or not, he would be in for a very difficult struggle he was not sure he could win any longer. Before he became her father's servant, he would not have had a second thought about being able to defeat her. Now however… Now he knew the truth, she could crush him in an instant. In any normal human, that knowledge would be enough to quell any thoughts of what he was about to do. However, Slade was no normal human and the thought of lying with one so powerful only seemed to excite and drive him on more. Maybe he had already gone past insane?

Slade carefully took one of the bracelets and slid it over her hand, mindful of not making contact with her skin himself. The gold bracelet was large enough to slide over her hand but once at her wrist it shrunk down, fitting onto her tightly. Raven whimper softly as a shudder went through her body. She shifted, rolling over onto her side, curling up into an almost ball-like shape. Had she not fallen into such a deep sleep, she would have woken…

Slade smiled to himself. He was certain now that the bindings would do their job. He carefully slid the last one over her other hand, watching as it too tightened around her wrist once he let it go. Another shiver and a quiet whimper was heard from Raven but still she slept on, completely unaware of the last of her power being sealed away.

Slade allowed himself a moment of relief knowing now she was at his mercy. 'Now the only question left is do I take her here… Or steal her away?' He reached out brushing a lock of hair from her face wishing for a moment that it were long like on her birthday. 'If I steal her away… would I ever let her go…?' He knew the answer even before he had asked himself the question. If she were truly in his grasp, he would never let her go.

'Do I do this…? Or do I let her go once more?' Just the thought of leaving her without knowing the touch or taste of her flesh was enough to almost drive him mad. He drew back his hand, fisting it at his side as he tried to control his urge to grab her and take her now. Once he was positive he had himself under control, he continued with his plan. 'I'll take her here and now. Then this will be over, and I will be content.' Even as he said it to himself, a part of him did not believe it. What if he took her and instead of it quelling his desire for her, only made it stronger? He brushed such thoughts aside as he went to her door, placing a small device over the keypad she had in her room. He activated it with the press of a button causing it to flash red showing it had disabled the controls for the door, inside and out.

He went back to her bed, taking his time knowing now, they could not be interrupted by accident. He watched her for a moment, resolving his thoughts, convinced now that there was no going back. He walked to her dresser, reaching up to his mask and taking it off, setting it down with one last look. He knew that at this precise moment, he could not be the man behind the mask. He did not know just who he was going to be in these next moments, but it could not be the criminal that he was. The villain the Titans knew him as behind that mask would never go this far for such a carnal desire. Slade reached into a pouch on his belt, pulling out a black cloth and setting it aside. Quietly he began to undress, starting with his boots and ending with his shirt. He stood bare, except for a pair of black boxers, in the moonlight, taking the clothes into his hands and setting it all on the dresser. He made sure a few things would be within easy reach should things go sour. Slade returned to Raven, watching her sleep for a moment longer before leaning down, carefully tying the blindfold around her head over her eyes.

Raven groaned and shifted, her mind finally starting to awaken from her short rest. She went to open her eyes but found them covered. She reached up to remove what was blinding her only to feel a pair of strong hands quickly grab her wrists. Panic struck her in an instant and she tried to pull her arms away, thrashing with a startled cry.

Slade quickly and easily, pulled both her wrists up, taking them into one large hand over her head, forcing her down into the bed. He used his other hand to cover her mouth, silencing her scream.

"Don't try to scream again." He said darkly, moving his body over hers, pressing her down with his weight on her lower body.

Raven froze when she heard his voice; she knew that voice… She screamed again, muffled beneath his hand as she struggled to escape his grasp without avail. True panic began to set in as she strained nonstop to call up her powers, only to feel as though a great weight was holding them deep inside of her.

"I said don't scream." He said roughly, squeezing her wrists together painfully getting a soft whimper of pain from her that he tried to ignore. "I've suppressed your powers; there is nothing you can do to stop me." Raven continued to struggle despite his words, squirming and struggling to pull her arms away from his grasp. Slade groaned above her, Raven's struggling was rubbing him in a rather pleasurable way. Slade gripped her wrists harder, receiving a sharp cry of pain from her beneath his hand, stilling her fight. "Stop struggling Raven or I'm going to hurt you." She stayed still under him at his words, glaring up with anger and defiance so plain on her face he did not need to see her eyes to know. Slade loosened his grasp on her wrists just enough to not be causing her anymore pain. "Now, you need to listen and listen well." He spoke firmly to her, dark in his tone to get his point across best. "I'm going to remove my hand and you are not going to scream. If you scream or try to alert your friends to my presence here, I will kill them and we both know you are the only one strong enough to stop me."

Raven shifted beneath him but kept quiet as he slowly removed his hand from her mouth.

Slade smirked. "Good. Now, do you know who I am?"

She nodded.

"Say my name."

"Slade…" She said softly, wishing for it to be anyone else. She knew Slade would keep his word and kill her friends if she called them to help her.

"Yes." He took the chance to look up and down her beneath him. "Do you know what I want?" He asked leaning down to whisper it in her ear.

Raven whimpered, attempting to move her face away from his without success. "No." She said trying to sound like she was not scared, she failed.

"I want what was promised to me by your father."

Raven whimpered as a shudder of fear ran down her spine. She could guess what her bastard of a father promised him… "You're going to rape me…" She said in a hushed whisper.

"Yes." He said leaning down and placing his face against her neck breathing in deep, taking in her sweet scent. Slade could feel his lower region pulse with excitement from just the alluring smell of her alone.

"Why…?" Raven asked softly feeling defeat start to claim her limbs. She had no powers… Could not call for her friends… And she had no way to overpower the man above her… She was at his mercy and knew he had none. All she could hope for was for this to be over with quickly.

Slade slid his free hand up her arm, taking one wrist into each hand, moving them to a more comfortable angle for them both. "Because I have wanted you long before your father promised you to me." He pushed his face into her neck, forcing her head to the side enough for him to softly bite her throat.

Raven gasped and tried to pull away only for his grasp to tighten on her wrists again. "Stop!" She tried to demand, while struggling to hide her fear.

"No." He said firmly, biting her again, harder this time. Raven cried out, only to quickly silence herself, not wanting to give him the pleasure of hearing her cries.

"Please…" She spoke softly as her body started to shake as she tried to hold back her tears. She could feel him kissing and biting her neck down to her shoulder. "Just let me go…"

Slade growled, gripping her arms so tightly that Raven cried out despite herself, knowing that he was leaving bruises on her wrists. "I already let you go once!" He said roughly, pressing his whole body down into hers forcefully. "I'm not letting you go again!"

Raven whimpered from the rough press of his lower body against hers. She forced herself to focus on his words instead of the pain and her growing fear. "What?" She asked trying to keep him talking; if he was talking, he was not biting her at least. "When…?"

"When else? On your birthday, when I held you on that tower." Slade replied, relaxing above her slightly.

"But you were bone…" She whispered softly.

"On that day I wasn't…" He said with a whisper back to her. "That was the day I was to take you, break your will to fight completely for your father."

"Why didn't you?" She asked in a hushed tone.

"I didn't want him to win." Slade admitted, loosening his hold on her arms slightly. "I didn't want to break you, not for him." He said while easing his body back from her slightly.

"Yet, you'll rape me now?"

Slade brought his lips to her cheek, kissing her softly. She flinched away from his touch. "If you don't fight me, I won't hurt you. I'll make this as painless as I can for you."

"Why would you care how it feels for me?" She bit back at him, mustering up a brief moment of strength and anger.

"I would rather hear moans of pleasure from you than cries of pain." He said as he slid his hands down her arms. He held himself up from her on one elbow, using his other hand to softly run his fingers up and down her side getting a gasp from Raven who tried her hardest to not move beneath him.

"I don't want this…" She said softly, trying to control her body to keep from showing how sensitive to touch she was. "Please don't do this to me." She said with a shudder as he traced little circles over her stomach. She thought about trying to force him away but knew that it would only end up with her arms trapped beneath his hands once again.

"I must." He whispered in her ear once more. "Else I will go mad." He slid his hand down, pressing his fingers into her, between her legs, earning a whimper of fear from her lips. "My thoughts and dreams torture me with fantasies of what you might feel like…" He moved his fingers against her, wishing that she were naked already. Raven gasped feeling him pressing into her clit though the fabric. "What you might taste like…" He brought his mouth to her throat again, biting her, perhaps a little too roughly, causing her to cry out. Raven's hands went to his shoulders, trying to push him away. She could not even make him to budge.

"Stop!" She exclaimed, desperately trying to force him off. She wanted to scream; she wanted to yell for help but knew she would not. She would not risk the lives of her friends just to save herself.

Slade ignored her pushing against him and took his hand from her core, grabbing her hip strongly. "Roll over." He instructed.

"No." She said trying to keep her defiance as her shield.

"Roll over, or I will make you." He said darkly, gripping her hip so strongly that Raven cried out softly, her hand going to his, trying and failing to break his grip on her. "Do as I say Raven."

"Or what, you'll rape me!" She growled out trying to fight him.

"No." He said darkly, putting his face next to hers. "I'll break you." He said in a threatening whisper. "I'll steal you away and never let you go. Your friends would never find you, never save you from me."

Raven froze from his threat, feeling the icy weight of it sink into her chest. The promise of being taken away from her friends was all too real in his words. He could do it and he would. "If…" Her voice was shaking softly as she tried to remain calm. "If I don't fight you…" She swallowed. "If I let you do what you want to me… You won't take me from my friends?"

"I won't steal you from them as long as you do as I say." He said watching her carefully. He felt her tension up beneath him but then she seemed to relax slowly. She was giving into him!

"I'll do what you want…" She said sealing her fate. "Just don't take me from my friends…"

Slade relaxed his grip on her hip smiling to himself. "Good girl." He lifted himself off her, giving her enough room to move. "Now, roll over." He said softly this time.

Raven hesitated for a moment but then took a deep breath, forming her resolve. She carefully rolled over, mindful to not rise herself too high as she could still feel the heat of him around her. Once on her stomach, she crossed her arms under her chest lying still beneath him knowing what was next.

Slade slid his hand up and down her back for a moment before brushing her short hair to the side, locating the zipper on her neck. His fingers took it in his grasp, slowly sliding it down. The tight fabric pealed open like a second skin to a knife; exposing more of the smooth skin of her back the lower he went. Slade felt himself pulse as he saw more and more of her pale flesh. He sat up once the zipper was as far down as it would go, ending just above her butt. He placed himself off to her left on his knees. Slowly, softly he ran a hand up and down her back. He traced the line of her bra and felt her shiver beneath his touch. "I want you to sit up with your back to me on your knees."

Raven slowly sat up until she was how he wanted, her hands holding herself around her chest. Slade scooted himself a little closer to her and laid his hands on her shoulders. He felt her flinch beneath his touch. "It's alright; I'm not going to hurt you now."

"Not yet… But you will…"

Slade ignored her words, sliding his hands over her shoulders, slipping his fingers beneath the fabric. "Open your arms. I want this off." Raven slowly lowered her arms allowing him to pull down her uniform. Once her arms were free of her sleeves, she held herself once more. Slade let go of her uniform and ran his hands up and down her body, sliding them from her hips to her neck, enjoying the feel of her smooth flawless skin. "You're so soft…" He could feel her shiver beneath his touch but was it from fear or pleasure?

"And your hands are rough…" Raven replied softly. She shifted her arms slightly, her fingers finding one of the bracelets that was locked tightly around her wrist. She tried to remove it but she could not even move it off her skin.

Slade brought his hands to her bra unhooking it. When Raven had no reaction to it, Slade brought his hands up and pulled down her bra straps. Raven gasped and recoiled from him; her arms holding her chest tightly. "Stop now, please…" She begged, trying to control her breathing.

"You won't be able to take those bands off." He replied, figuring she had distracted herself with trying to remove them. He placed his hands on his lap, giving her a moment without his touch. "Take off your bra, Raven."

"Where did you get these?" She asked attempting to buy enough time to think of a way out of having to give up her bra.

"I was given those in case you caused too much trouble for me on your birthday." He laid a hand on her lower back. She flinched from him slightly. "Now take off your bra before I take it from you."

Raven slowly slid her bra down her arms, careful to keep her hands covering as much of her large breasts as she could. "I am to be met with a threat every time I don't do as you say?" She asked bitterly, glad that her voice at least sounded strong and defiant this time. She reluctantly let her bra fall to her bed.

Slade sighed and scooted closer to her, laying his hands on her shoulders softly. "I don't want to have to threaten you Raven." He said while rubbing her shoulders softly with his thumbs. "I could give you great pleasure if you'd stop fighting me."

"I will never stop fighting you." Raven replied in a biting tone, holding herself together despite his touch. Slade sighed and took one hand down from her shoulder, sliding it across her hip, going beneath her uniform and underwear to her slit. Raven gasped and took a hand from her breasts, grabbing his wrist. "Stop." She demanded, her strong voice starting to waver. Slade ignored her, moving his fingers skillfully as he found her clit and rubbed her in a soft circle. Raven gasped and found herself squirming slightly beneath his hand. Slade stayed silent behind her as he worked his fingers against her clit. He could feel her body rebelling against her as she started to get wet. He slid his fingers down, getting them slick with her cum before continuing to rub her clit even faster now.

Raven gasped, soft whimpers and moans escaping her lips unwillingly as his fingers continued to work her clit. Her grip on his wrist tightened as her pleasure began to build. Her breathing shifted and she started to take shorter faster breaths. "Ah…" Raven panted softly as she felt her lower body tighten. How, why did this have to feel so good?! She bit her lip trying to keep herself together; she would not give into his touch! Despite her resolve, her body had started to give into the pleasure that was building to where she was trembling beneath his hands.

Just when Raven knew she could take no more, Slade stopped, pulling his hand away from her core and out of her grasp. Raven gasped and shuddered, feeling a sudden need to put his fingers back against her. She shivered as the pleasure gradually started to fade away. Slade rubbed her shoulders and lower neck with his other hand, massaging her muscles carefully. "Was my touch just now not pleasurable?" He asked with a grin knowing she was not going to reply. "I could give you so much more pleasure than that…" He whispered huskily in her ear making Raven trembling beneath his hand from the thought.

"I don't want you to touch me at all…" She claimed while trying to control her breathing and calm her racing heart. She had never felt pleasure like that before in her life.

"Oh, but I think your body says differently." Slade said with grin as he brought his hand up to his lips and licked his fingers, getting a taste of her. He held back groan of desire from the small taste of her sweet juices knowing he would have to taste more of her now. Slade grinned and took both of his hands along her neck and shoulders massaging her muscles skillfully. He could feel Raven's tense muscles giving into his strong grasp. He smirked as an idea came to him. "How about this…" He spoke, leaning down and whispering into her ear. "Let's test your will against my skill." He purred. "If you can last fifteen minutes without saying my name I will leave without taking you."

Raven took a deep, slow breath and spoke, keeping her voice as calm and collected as she could. "If I say your name then I lose and allow you to rape me…" She said more to herself than to him. "What are you going to do to me?" She asked fearing that almost as much as him actually raping her. He could do any number of horrible things to her to make her say his name.

Slade smirked and drew his teeth across her shoulder lightly getting a gasp from her as she tried to pull away but his hold on her prevented her from fleeing. "I'm going to give you pleasure." He said with a smirk feeling her confusion in her body. "I told you, I'd much rather hear your cries of pleasure than pain, I meant that."

Raven was still as she thought about the option. On one hand, she could just keep fighting him and end up raped OR, she could take him up on this offer and try to last fifteen minutes without saying his name. Then she would be free of him without being raped. However, IF she did loose, she would have to let him take her without a fight… He was right; this would be putting her will against his skill. Did she believe she could last more than fifteen minutes without giving into him?

"Deal." She said forming her resolve.

Slade smirked. "Deal." He said back, sealing the arrangement. He pulled his hands back from her, scooting back slightly as well. "Get naked." He said trying to keep his eagerness from his voice.

Raven hesitated looking back to him despite not being able to see him. "Are you…?"

"I still have my boxers on, relax. These will stay on till after I win this bet." He said confidently.

Raven glared at him beneath the blindfold. "You won't win anything." She said as she as she built up her walls. She took a deep breath and formed her resolve like a shield around her mind. She shifted her body to where she hoped Slade would not be able to see her breasts and let her hands fall down to her hips as she slid off her uniform and underwear. Once her legs were free of her clothes she tossed them off the bed, her arms quickly wrapping around her breasts once more while she kept her legs together tightly.

"So beautiful…" Slade said softly as he looked at her. Raven's delicate pale skin was bathed in the moonlight that made her glow softly as though she was born from the moon itself. Raven blushed lightly hearing his words and tried to ignore them but failed. Did he truly think her beautiful?

Slade shook his head and snapped himself out of his thoughts. If he won this little bet he could take all the time he wanted to look over her body. "Lie down on your back and spread your legs." He said softly knowing that this was going to be hard for her. If he made her fight him at all, it was only going to make his job harder.

Raven took a few deep breaths, trying to keep herself calm as she slowly did as he asked. She bit her lip as she ended up on her back, her head finding her pillow and her hands not leaving her breasts. Her legs were still together, she could not bring herself to lay her body open for him. What if this was all just a ploy to get her into an easier position to rape her?

"Move your hands to the bed, Raven." Slade said not moving from his spot. He did not comment on her legs not being spread for him. He would deal with that himself in a moment. He just needed her to calm down a little more. He could see the fear in her body and while many emotions could be turned into sexual pleasure, fear could not. True, a little fear was fun and even desirable for sex, but the trembling fear that ran through her would only destroy any pleasure he could bring her. This bet was going to be harder than it needed to be if he could not get her to trust him somehow…

Raven whimpered softly before she could catch herself as she lowered her hands to the bed, gripping the sheets tightly. She felt the bed shift slightly as Slade moved. She froze herself, clenching every muscle in her body, ready to recoil from his touch.

Slade moved up the bed and knelt by her body off to the side, reaching out to her face with a hand cupping her cheek softly as he leaned over her, bracing himself with his other arm over her upper body. "Raven…" He said softly as she recoiled slightly from his touch. "You don't have to be afraid of me Raven."

"Says the man who wants to rape me right now." She bit back trying to turn her fear of him into anger.

Slade almost sighed and shook his head; this could be going a whole Hell of a lot better… "I don't want to rape you." He used his hand to comb his fingers through her hair, trying to calm her. "I want you willing." He leaned down and pressed his forehead to hers. "I need you to trust me…" He said keeping his voice soft. "What can I do to make you trust that I will keep my word?"

Raven tilted her head to the side breaking their contact while she thought of anything to give her the upper hand against him. "Take these bindings off…" She said emotionlessly.

Slade sighed heavily. Of course, she would ask for something he could not do… Or, could he? "Only if you swear not to use your powers against me or to flee." He countered.

Raven growled at his demand. "No." She said knowing she could not swear not to blast him through the ceiling.

Slade chuckled softly at her pout. "Then I can't take them off. Think of something else." He replied as he continued to brush his fingers through her hair lightly.

Raven huffed and tried to think of something else that would work. She bit her lip and had to stop herself from squirming slightly as a new idea came to her. Would he go for it though? Would he risk so much just for one night with her or would this damn her to a lifetime with him? "Take… Take off my blindfold…"

Slade stayed still above her minus his hand that continued to stroke through her hair. His thoughts raced as he thought about the option. After this, if he did take the blindfold off, she would know his face. She could tell Robin what he looked like and pretty much ruin everything he had built. Or he could do what he said he would not and steal her away, never to let her go. No… He could not steal her away, while it may mean he would have her all to himself he knew taking her away would kill her inside. Moreover, she may very well figure out a way to kill him and that would not bode well either. His options really did suck right now… Left with only raping her, ruining his career, or possibly being killed in the future… Which option was he going to take or was he going to just leave and never know the feeling of her beautiful body against his?

Slade sighed. "Close your eyes…" He said softly as his hand went to her blindfold. "Keep them closed till I say otherwise…" Raven did as he said when he removed the blindfold and tossed it away. "Give me your hand." He said to which Raven slowly raised a hand that he took into his free hand, moving to press her hand against his face. "I would rather you know what you are getting into…" He said emotionlessly as he slowly slid her hand over the right side of his face. Raven held in a gasp, tightening her chest as she felt the start of a rough scar. His hand fell away from hers that stayed on his face. Slowly, she traced her fingers lightly up the scar feeling a leathery patch of skin that existed where an eye should have been.

"How…?" She asked softly before she could stop herself as she reached up with her other hand as well to feel the rest of his face. She moved her fingers away from his scar to map out the rest of his face. Raven found his cheekbones were strong and went well with the shape of his jaw line. His face was angled and slightly wide but not too much however. She could tell just from touching his face he would be handsome. Damn it, Starfire just won that bet… Hopefully, she was not starting a losing streak.

"I'd rather not talk about that…" Slade said as he tried to keep still beneath her touch.

Raven nodded beneath him as her fingers went back to his scar. Parts of it were slightly rough but she knew now the majority of the scar tissue was actually very smooth. "You're handsome…" She said hoping it would keep him talking. The longer he talked the less time he had to do what he wanted with her.

Slade laughed almost bitterly. "You won't say that soon enough."

"I don't dislike scars…" She admitted faintly with a slight blush, but Slade easily heard.

"Oh?" He said holding back a laugh. Raven could feel his smile beneath her hands. "Good, because I've got more than most. Open your eyes." He said; glad now that he did not have to worry about her looking at him with horror in her eyes. If in fact she liked scars, she was really going to enjoy the look of him…

Raven opened her eyes and took a moment to look him over. Slade was arched over her upper body giving her a clear view of him in the moonlight. 'He wasn't kidding when he said he had more scars than most.' She thought as she looked down his well-muscled chest. Raven bit her lip as she forced up her courage and took her hands, sliding her fingers down a few longer scars on his chest. "These are from a blade…" She stated as she tried to figure out how one human could have so many different scars.

"Sword, if I remember correctly." He said as he watched her hands trace more scars. Raven's fingers traced a rounded scar on his chest just above his heart. "Bullet." He stated before she could.

"How have you survived all of these?" She asked as she continued to trace over his body, though now her hands seemed to have wandered off against her will, tracing the lines of his muscles as well.

"It helps not getting them all at once." Slade said with a grin to her glare.

"I figured that." She replied in a slightly annoyed tone. She watched her hands almost strangely as she noticed the contrasting color of their skin. Where her skin was like moonlight, soft and a pale whitish gray; his skin was tan, almost golden in color in the soft light. He had a form that felt as though he was built from stone. She pressed her hands into him looking for some form of softness to his muscles but she found none. She knew the power this man held in his physical strength alone and the thought of it arched above her tightened her in a way she knew it should not.

Slade kept himself still above her and watched her face closely, trying to read her emotions and thoughts. "I regenerate." He stated calmly, carefully watching her reaction. He knew he should not really be telling her anything about his abilities as it could be used against him but he figured that did not matter anymore. Just by showing his face, he had thrown everything to ruin so why not walk a little further into the flames?

Raven's eyes met his at his words. Now that… That was interesting knowledge… "How quickly do you heal…?" She asked while trying to push away certain thoughts. Was it not just moments ago, she did not want him even touching her? Yet now, she was the one finding herself touching him!

"Why do you want to know?" Slade asked with a raised eyebrow.

Raven blushed and quickly looked away from him. "Forget I asked…" She said drawing her hands back from him and holding herself around her middle.

'Fuck…' Slade thought knowing he had just screwed up. How he screwed up, he was not sure but he knew he had for she was pulling herself away from him again, building back up her walls she had just started to let down. 'I should have just answered the damn question…' A quick glance outside let him know the moon was starting to get low in the sky. 'I don't have much time left…' He had to be out of the Tower before any of her friends started to wake up or he risked getting caught red handed. While none of the Titans used lethal force, if they caught him in bed with the bird beneath him right now, he knew for him, they would make an exception.

Slade leaned down to whisper in her ear. "Are you ready?" He asked softly, taking his fingertips up and down her side making her shiver.

"Who's keeping track of the time?" She asked trying to keep her voice steady as she looked away from him.

"I have a watch." He said back as his lips lightly brushed her neck.

Raven bit her lip and held in her breath as she felt Slade's lips on her throat. She could feel his hot breath caress her skin, feeling as though the warmth would sink into her. She swallowed deeply before she spoke, trying to sound strong. "I'm ready."

Slade smiled and kissed her neck drawing back from her. "Good."

Raven did not look to him but she heard a few beeps and assumed that it was him setting the timer on his watch. She felt the bed shift as Slade changed his position. Raven gasped as he took a hand down her inner thigh. She looked back to him with fear in her eyes and her body tight.

"Spread your legs, Raven." Slade stated calmly as he drew his hand back from her. Raven squirmed slightly for a moment as she closed her eyes and looked away from him again. Slowly she parted her legs and tried to relax them as much as her nervousness would allow her.

Slade could not keep the smirk off his face and was glad that, for the moment, she was not looking at him. Slade took one finger, caressing along her waistline softly, making her twitch. He slid his finger down lower, gently feeling the soft skin of her more private area. He was almost surprised to find that she was naturally smooth there, no trace of hair at all that a human would have. One of the perks to being a half-demon he supposed. He changed his position again, taking his hands to her thighs and spreading her legs wider, getting between them. He felt her leg muscles fight against him for a moment and knew the thought of her fleeing from him had crossed her mind. Slade scooted his body back and proceeded to lay himself down between her legs, sliding his hands beneath her thighs and gripping her just below her ass. He held her tight enough that she could not flinch away from him.

Raven gasped and sat up slightly on her elbows, looking down to Slade. A hot blush made its way across her cheeks as she found his face just inches away from her core. "What… What are you doing?" She asked as he blew his hot breath softly across her inner thighs.

"What I've fantasized about doing to you for a long time now." He purred out before taking his tongue and sliding it between the pink inner lips of her sex.

Raven gasped and fell back onto the bed as he flicked his tongue across her clit skillfully. She closed her eyes as she tried not to think about the feeling of Slade's tongue sliding against her most sensitive area. It was not long before Raven found herself squirming and whimpering from his touch as her hands gripped the sheets tightly beneath her. She tried her best to control her breathing and focus on anything other than the building heat between her legs but she failed as Slade continued his actions. Raven cried out softly when he carefully nipped her clit with his teeth. How was she supposed to fight a feeling she had never felt before? How was she supposed to ignore something that felt so good?

Slade moaned, as he tasted the sweet juices of her sex. Her taste was soft and delicate as though in an instant, the sweet flavor of her could be lost. However, while he had her beneath his tongue, he savored the taste of her. Slade sucked on her inner lips and slid his tongue everywhere he could, making sure to find every spot that would make her shiver and moan. Her soft whimpers of pleasure and gasps were like music to his ears but it was not enough. He wanted to hear her scream his name in pleasure. Slade flicked his tongue over her clit again before taking it down lower and finding the tight entrance to her core.

Raven cried out, back arching from the new sensation as Slade slid his tongue into her being. She moaned and squirmed in Slade's grasp as his tongue licked inside of her tight core.

Slade moaned into her core feeling her tight muscles clamp around his tongue denying him the chance to push deeper into her. Slade drew back from her, withdrawing his hands from her thighs and sitting up. He allowed himself only a second to take in Raven's panting form, seeing the soft rosy red blush over her cheeks. Slade leaned over her core sliding one hand back beneath her to hold her hips again and brace himself on his elbow. His mouth went back to her clit sucking on it with his lips while his tongue rubbed it in circles making her moan.

Raven cried out from his renewed attention to her clit and squirmed beneath his ministrations. Raven's hands gripped her sheets so tightly her arms trembled with the desire to be placed in other places. How much time had passed since he began? The building heat between her legs tightened her body in ways she had never felt before and she struggled to keep fighting the pleasure. She gave up trying to control her breathing as she panted and moaned while her heart raced in her chest.

Slade paused in his actions with his mouth just long enough to get one finger on his free hand wet. He quickly put his lips back to her clit sucking on her strongly and grazing her with his teeth making her hips buck beneath him and a cry escape her lips. Slade slid his finger up and down her slit coating it in her cum. He gripped her thigh tighter and lifted his face from her core to watch her reaction. "Tell me if I hurt you." He said as he slowly slid his finger into her tight sheath. He was careful to keep his finger curved upward knowing he could easily hit her hymen like this and cause her pain.

"Ahh!" Raven cried out, her back arching up from the sensation of him slipping inside of her. Her muscles contracted around his finger heightening her pleasure. "Ohh…Ahh!"

Slade watched her carefully as he moved his finger slowly in her tight core. Never had he felt a woman so tight! It was as if his finger alone was too big for her small body. He curled the tip of his finger and rubbed the soft bulb inside of her about an inch deep knowing just what that kind of touch was going to do to her.

Raven arched her back, letting out a quiet, breathless scream of pleasure as Slade stroked the spot inside of her that sent pleasure all the way down to her toes. Raven tilted her upper body and grabbed her pillow; bringing it to her face and screaming into as Slade's mouth went back to her clit doubling her pleasure tenfold. Raven's body bucked and squirmed beneath him as wave after wave contracted her lower body until she felt like a dam about to break.

Slade could feel her reaching her breaking point and went faster with his finger inside of her, sucking her clit harder, working his tongue against her feverishly to push her over the edge of no return.

It worked.

"SLADE!" Raven screamed, tossing her pillow away, while her body bucked as her orgasm rushed over her like a tidal wave sending her body into contractions as waves of pleasure rushed over her.

Slade drew back from her as she came, pulling his finger out from inside of her as her core tightened in her orgasm. Slade watched on with a huge amount of satisfaction as Raven came, watching her body twitch and spasm from the rush of pleasure running through her muscles. "Beautiful…" He whispered, watching her squirm in the moonlight, a glistening sheen of sweat covered her pale skin.

Raven moaned and whimpered as she twisted and shivered in pleasure. Was this what sex felt like? Was this true pleasure? Was this the sensation she never thought she would know? She felt the bed shift, feeling Slade leaving his spot between her legs and wrapping his arms around her waist, laying down next to her on his side. He pulled her shivering body against his with her back pressed tightly into his chest. She did not care however. Her body rode this high like a drug wishing never to come down from the clouds. She could feel his hardness pressing into her from behind beneath his boxes; the ever-growing promise of much more pleasure to come.

"I win…" Slade whispered to her while a hand stroked back her hair from her face. Raven nodded softly as she did not trust her voice yet. Slade's watch went off and he quickly silenced it with a click. He chuckled softly wrapping his arm around her waist tighter. "You almost held out. Only had a few more minutes left."

Raven closed her eyes and relaxed her calming body as she had regained her breath and calmed her heart. "What happens now?" She asked softly, though she already knew the answer. They had a deal and she was not one to go back on her word…

"Now…" Slade said as he sat up and arched his upper body over hers once more as she laid back against the bed. "I get to truly have you…" He leaned down and pressed his lips to hers softly.

Raven hesitated for a moment with his lips against hers but before he could pull away, she kissed him back, pressing her lips to his. Slade moaned softly from her response and licked her lips softly asking for permission to enter her mouth.

Raven parted her lips and returned his kiss as his tongue slipped into her mouth allowing them a taste of each other. Raven slowly slid her hands up his chest before wrapping them around his neck as Slade deepened the kiss between them.

They broke apart from the kiss with a gasp remembering that they needed to breathe. Slade leaned down to continue their kiss but a knock at Raven's door froze them both with a look to the door.

"Raven, are you alright?" Asked Robin from behind her door. "I heard you scream… Raven?"

Raven and Slade looked back to each other at the same time. Slade made a move to get off the bed but Raven acted quickly knowing that Slade may very well keep his word about killing her friends; even if her scream had been his fault. She sat up when he moved away and grabbed his arm tightly, speaking before he could pull away from her. "I'm fine!" She said in a rush, not looking away from Slade's face. "I just had a nightmare…" She said more calmly as she felt the tension in Slade start to fade away. "Go back to bed Robin. It's really late."

"Alright… You sure you're okay?" Robin asked, muffled from behind the door but still clear enough to understand.

"I'm fine, goodnight Robin." She said hoping to end the conversation with her best friend. Just what would he do if he found out Slade was behind the door and in her bed? She did not plan to let him find out. After all, she knew exactly what Slade would do…

"Okay…" Robin replied, the uncertainty clear in his voice. "Goodnight Raven, I'm just down the hall if you need me…" With those words, he left, completely unaware that the man who topped his most wanted list was in bed with his most trusted friend just behind the door.

Raven sighed in relief as Robin left and looked to Slade who watched her with curiosity in his eye. She let go of his arm, as Slade did not have a reason to attack Robin now.

"You didn't tell him I was here…Why?" Slade asked after silence had been between them for too long.

Raven looked away from him not bothering to cover her body. Modesty was the least of her concerns right now. "You have kept your word to me so far. You told me if my friends came to my aid you'd kill them." She looked back to him. "Or was that a lie?" She asked, watching him carefully now.

Slade looked her in the eyes before sliding off the bed and going to his cloths. He reached into them and picked up something Raven could not see. Slade walked back to the bed and stood in the moonlight. He held up his hand and Raven froze seeing the long combat knife he held. "I do not lie." He said seriously, gauging her reaction.

Raven swallowed past the lump in her throat as she tried to think of what to say but nothing came to her so she kept silent.

Slade held in a sigh as he saw some of the fear she had for him return to her. He moved towards her and sat down on the bed with his back to her looking at the dagger in his hand. "You can relax. I'm not going to hurt you with this."

Raven built up her courage and slid up to sit by him, taking the chance to get the thin sheet out from under her and covering the front of herself with it.

Slade glanced to her glad she had moved to his left side so he could see her easier. A quick glance down her body made him frown as he had wished for her to still be naked before him. "You asked before about how quickly I can regenerate." He stated softly making sure not to make too much noise in case Robin was still around out in the hallway. He doubted it, but it never hurt to air on the side of caution. Then again, did he not just throw away his whole career anyways?

Raven looked at him in confusion; he was not thinking what she thought he was… Was he?

Slade smirked slightly and took the blade to his left hand, slicing into his palm.

Raven gasped. "Slade don't!" She exclaimed in a hushed tone reaching for his hand. She watched as he drew back the knife seeing the small amount of blood on the blade. Raven looked to his hand that he held out to her, watching a line of blood swell up in his palm. She waited for his blood to drip off his hand but it never did. Raven watched in amazement as his skin started to close right before her eyes.

Slade smiled seeing the look of shock on her face. "That is how fast I heal." He stated still curious about why she had wanted to know. He saw a look pass over her eyes as she bit her bottom lip for a moment before the look was gone. Was that a look of hunger or something else?

Raven looked away from him and out her window, realizing just how early in the morning it was now. The moon was still in the sky but only just. She needed Slade out of her room before the others woke up. Beast Boy had the habit of being up at the crack of dawn and waking everyone else up. Raven tried to ignore the thoughts that kept creeping up into her mind and distracting her. "My friends will be awake soon…" She said wondering why time had seemed to rush by tonight. "We don't have much time left to…" Her voice trailed off as she squirmed slightly next to him.

Slade sighed with a shake of his head. "It doesn't matter now." He stated getting a confused look from Raven once again. "That one small scream was enough to wake up one of your friends. Do you think you could keep quiet enough to not alert them again while we have sex?"

Raven blushed heavily as she looked away from him and almost pouted. "It wasn't my fault I screamed…" She said trying not to be embarrassed.

Slade laughed lightly. "My point exactly." Raven looked back to him with a raised eyebrow. "I don't want you to be quiet; I want to hear all the sounds you make. I know I won't be able to keep from trying to make you scream my name again."

"Then what do you suggest?"

Slade's was quiet for a moment as he thought. "Come with me." Slade stated softly with a slight amount of caution. Raven looked at him with worry and drew back slightly. He continued quickly seeing her look. "Just for a few hours; I already promised not to steal you away."

Raven looked to her hands, considering his idea. "Swear to me… Swear you'll bring me back here once…" She took a deep breath, sealing herself to their deal. "Once we've had sex."

Slade took a second to remind himself he could not keep her all to himself as he nodded. "I swear to return you to this room and not keep you all to myself."

"Okay…" She whispered as she tried to push away her fear, her hands gripped the sheet around her tightly, fingers twisting it, showing her nervousness. She looked back to Slade who had a soft smile on his lips. "How are we getting there?" She asked wondering if she needed to get dressed again.

"Teleporting." He said pointing to his watch. "It's how I got here." Slade stood up and went to his clothes, grabbing his pants and sliding them back on. "You might want to throw something on, just in case."

Raven slid off her bed, taking the sheet with her that she had wrapped around her body. "In case of what?" She asked walking past him and going to her closet.

"In case we run into my butler. This thing isn't set to go straight to my room." Slade said as he watched her walk past. He slid his knife away and clipped his mask onto his belt; he did not need it anymore.

"You have a butler?" Raven asked as she looked around in her closet for what she wanted to wear.

"Of course." Slade said with a slight laugh from the tone of shock in her voice. He slipped on his shirt and grabbed his boots before going to her bed and sitting down to slide them on.

Raven finally found what she wanted and slipped it on while she was still in her large closet. She came out dragging her sheet behind her and found Slade sitting on her bed, completely dressed already. "I'm ready." She said as she walked towards her bed.

Slade looked to her and froze. Raven was dressed in a dark blue silk nightgown that clung to her body and shined in the moonlight that could not reach her. The straps were thin on her shoulders while her bust was almost too tight for the gown. It pressed into her breasts tight enough to show the small buds of her nipples beneath the fabric. Slade swore it had to be her skin that was shining softly, giving her an ethereal glow in the darkness around her.

"You look beautiful…" He said gently as she approached him, throwing her sheet back onto her bed in a small pile.

Raven blushed and looked away from him, holding herself again. "That is the second time you have said that…" She said softly, glancing to him. "Do… Do you really think that about me?" She asked hesitantly.

Slade could see the vulnerability in her eyes as she looked to him. Did she not know how beautiful she was? Slade reached out and took her hands into his, pulling her towards him. "You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life." He took both her small hands into one of his and reached up with his other hand, cupping her cheek tenderly. "I would fight every Demon Lord there is, just to hold you close."

Raven looked at him cautiously. "You might have to if things go too far between us…" She whispered ever so softly, leaning into his hand and closing her eyes.

"What do you mean?"

Raven shook her head lightly while taking a hand and laying it against his on her face. "Nothing." She replied, looking him in the eyes while hiding her thoughts. "We should go. We're running out of time."

Slade frowned but said nothing of it. If she wanted to keep secrets, he would let her. After all, it was not his place to pry into her life. "Yeah…" He said standing up and drawing his hands back to finish setting the teleporter. "Alright, put your arms around me and hold on tightly." He said opening his arms up. He saw her hesitate and glance back at her door. She took a deep breath and let it out gradually. Raven moved to him, wrapping her arms around his middle tightly, pressing herself to him and closing her eyes. Slade pressed his watch and quickly wrapped his arms around her tightly, holding her as the device activated and teleported them out of her room.
