Symbol of the Knight-
"Recognized, Robin. B-02."
"How did Joker get out of Arkham?! I want to know, now!"
A few younger members of the Team stumbled back in fear as the seventeen mwaka old Boy-Wonder stormed into the Cave. A look of murder on his face.
"Robin, whoah! What is it?"
"Out of my way M'gann! Where's Batman?!"
"Right here." the grizzly voice came. Robin rounded on the Dark Knight. "How did he get out?!"
"That's a good question. Another good swali would be why are wewe so upset?" Batman replied calmly.
"Because he almost killed Batgirl!"
"She's fine, Cassie." Robin sighed. "But what I want to know is why wewe didn't finish him once and for all! Especially after--"
Robin froze. Saying "Jason" risked their identities. Saying "Robin" confused the younger ones, and saying "Red Hood" gave away too much.
"I explained it to wewe before." Batman said. "I know being back in the suit pains you, but you're uigizaji zaidi like him every day!"
"Who?" Cassie whispered.
"The sekunde Robin." Superboy replied. "little violent for a hero. But he was killed kwa the Joker."
"Recognized, Batgirl. B-22."
Barbara walked into the Cave. "Sorry, couldn't find my uniform--" she stopped at the stunned looks of everyone in the Cave. "What? You're uigizaji like wewe saw a ghost."
"But--but--" Robin stumbled over his words. "But you're--"
"But I'm what?" Barbara demanded, putting her hands on her hips.
Robin glanced at Batman and ran towards the zeta-tubes. "Recognized, Robin. B-02."
A moment later, the Boy Wonder was in the BatCave, closely followed kwa Batman and Barbara.
"I'm not following what's going on." Barbara said. "Bru--"
"Hush!" Robins hissed. He slowed as he approached the red-head figure of Batgirl, lying on the operating table, blood coming from her arms and stomach. Alfred was leaning over her with a surgeons mask on.
"Did wewe take off the cowl?!" Robin demanded.
"Of course n-- Good Heavens! Mistress Gordon! What on--How--"
"Let's find out." Robin said. He slipped his fingers under the cowl and slowly pulled it off to reveal the face of--
"Artemis." Robin breathed.
The cowl was fully removed and the fake red hair fell to the ground. The blonde had a contorted look of pain on her face. Robin touched her blood matted hair gently and brushed some strands out of her face.
"Where's Kid Flash?" Robin demanded, turning to his former mentor.
"He's at Little Bohemia in Metropolis with Flash." a new voice said. "Why?"
"This is his girlfriend, Tim. Dressed in Barbara's costume." Robin face-palmed himself. "I am so dead."
