Raven became less tense in his arms after hearing all went well with the rescues mission. ” Thank Azar." She sigh settling her head upon his chest. Enjoying the warmth he gave off. " " She reminded him, looking over his person a little to see if he himself had any injures.
Raven gingerly kissed him back when her brushed his lips against hers mid-speech.” Did all go well?” She said her undertone worried,” Everyone alright?”
He nodded and relaxed down into the seat, “I think so, all the reported girls, I found, got them home. A few minor bumps and bruises but they didn’t act like anything unspeakable had befallen them yet, so I think I made good time”

From zero to sixty it felt like, he was so aggressive and harsh with her moments ago and yet here he was moments latter. Looking like a frighten child. ” I can’t say if he knows about your using, I do know he is very clever and worried about you." She said her expression soften a little feeling like she need to be gentle with him. ”
"How….I have PTSD and the nightmares… does he really know about the drugs or is that just."He knew of course Grayson would have known, the painkillers were well hidden , but dick was a fucking great detective.
"You think it would help?"He didn’t know i she could chase them away,but if she could, then he would no longer need the things to make the pain and the memories go away.He grabbed at the sides of his head then.
"Make them go away please."
Her eyes widen a little almost temped to go to his side and make sure he was alright. However she kept the distance between them so he could regain his composure. She should know not to be ‘creepy and spooky’ as Logan called her, around others. Letting out a sigh as she took the arrow head necklace from her pocket,” Grayson told me." She let those words sink in. She walked over to knee in front of him." He cares more then he lets on, he noticed your nightmares when he visits…" Raven looked at the leather and stone made necklace." So I’ve come to scare you nightmares away. ” she said in a sigh.How dare he…he had no right to tell her such things. Considering she was barely even gaining the trust of the small group, even know she can sense the misgiving they held towards her. They wouldn’t much bat an eye at her disappearance. Like a missing mug or book that you forgot about. If you didn’t even know it was there how could you miss it? The little woman stood and listen to him in his blind rage lashing out at her. The smell of beer lingering on his breath as he verbally attacked his friends. And beneath it all she felt the undeniable sadness the feeling of betrayal and resentment. Letting out a sigh, Raven wasn’t going to waste her breath n the drunk. Her words held no weight to her, after all what good were the words of a stranger.”Are you done?" She asked with her arms crossed about her chest in a lazy fashion. Taking in a breath before she spoke again,” I am here because I wish to be here, my reasoning is none of your concern."She said ignoring his question as to why she was one of then few who showed him kindness. Perhaps it was because she knew how it felt to be that alone." I heard you’ve been having nightmares.”
He staggered when she said that.”I… I never told anyone about those.”He flopped back on and put his head between his legs.
Once he was able to take even breaths a few times he looked up at her.
"Yeah I have been having nightmares. Same ones I have about everything else, normal ones just more than normal. Why are you asking? ..Also who told you?"
Raven’s cheeks flushed with blush as she tired not to flinch at the sudden touch. Taken off guard by the closeness,” Grayson I’m fine. I promise." She said softly looking up at the man who towered her petite frame.
He gently slips his arms around her. “Anything I can do for you?”

"You have friends other people to come look for you, you never murdered people because people you trusted refused to help you get justice. When you ask for help Dick comes to help you and so does Star, Garfield and the rest. Dick, dick was supposed to be my best friend. Where was he when I needed him? Do you know what that asshole told me when I asked him to fucking help me avenged for the crimes done against me? He told me, THEY WERE JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS! Roy my clone used up all my fucking parent’s cash lookng for me, that was the only god damn person who ever helped me and even he refused to get the damn scientests back. I was lucky I managed to get every single one of them back even Lex, before I was told I fucked up and would probually never be free again, all because no one would help me. A why, why do you help me when no one else will?"
He was finished his rant with a question, the rest of that was just bullshit, he wanted to know why only she wanted to help him? Why she bothered to visit him when even Dick wouldn’t.
"You… why are you here? What is the real reason, and why, why only you?"
The empath let out a small little scoff at him commenting on her sex. Raven was very well aware she was a woman, the temple monk made sure she was to behavior like a proper young lady. “ I know a few who would disagree you…not like they can do much now. " She said thinking of Lady Azar and Arella; who always worried about the demon before the girl.
"No, you are a woman first, never anything else."He rolled his eyes.
"What life, a life of always being watched, always having someone else’s kid call me father, always being alone? Yeah great fucking life for the lab rat, to be forever trapped in a box with people periodically tapping my fucking tank? sounds like the perfect life for the perfect fucking man right?"
He got up and walked away to go get something. Roy didn’t need to lash out but he always would. That was how he was, unless he was on something, which was also possible, but being drunk definitely hurt him the most when it came to reasons why he was pissed off.
"Go back to the lie that suits you, you don’t need to dwell with people like me."
Her brow twitching a little while the blue eyed boy lashed out at her. Now she was becoming annoyed looking in the reflection of her face in the dark tea. Her crimson gem on her forehead, gleaming in the fluorescent light. Raven knew all too while of what it felt like to be like him. To be forced into something beyond your control, to being alone and ostracized. ” Please do explain to me how I am living a lie?" She said looking over to him. Her voice still clam and wispy yet held a harsh tone. " Do not mistake my indifferent demeanor for weakness or something to take lightly. I am not fond of that at all." She said walking closer to him standing her ground.
My ask box is empty …
You guys should do something about that
Send me stuff please~

Raven wasn’t all to sure if that was an insult or if he was just stating facts. So did know it bruised her pride though, even if she wasn’t and open book to read. “I’m from a different dimension, you can’t blame me for being a little strange." Although most would just call her spooky.
He did look her over a few times. “Two beings with more demons then hell, sitting having a drink together, in a cage built to hold a trouble man? How interesting. It sounds like a bad romance novel.”
He put the empty can down and leaned back in his chair. ” I’ll be sure to call you if someone breaks in and shoots me, since they took my guns.”He wouldn’t bring up the elephant in the room not unless she was fine with him bringing it up.Raven could feel his gaze on her with his stormy blue eyes. It was something she was used to, eyes starting at her. She was kept locked up in the temple of Azarath so much that the Azarthains treating her as if she was their monster to point and gawk at. Looking at her, it was hard to believe she had the power to began mankind to its knees. No wonder why they were so afraid of her.
She let out a dry chuckle to his bad romance novel comment.” Indeed." She said her voice echoing off the steel and stone wall." Yeah….sorry about that…" She gestured to his current living ‘situations’.
“Mmmm hmmm.”He cleared his throat.
“Normally woman doesn’t show up alone around a type of man that I became. You aren’t here for weirder reasons are you?” He smiled almost cheekily. Then he closed his eyes and he gave a soft laugh.
People might think I fucked you too. Might be nice for once, to live a life that someone else didn’t steal from me.”He he snorted, his emotional state was hollow, almost like his head was filled with fog.
Her face flushed with a light blush when he talk of how others may view her visiting him. Anyone who knew her would know she flinched at the touch and shys away from it like a timid bird. It was even forbidden for people to touch her or some any type of emotions towards the half-demon back on Azarath. ” Roy…you still have a life ahead of you. You should dwell on what-could-have-been’s."
