Beast Boy was prowling along the ceilings, in the form of a gecko, making his way over to the kitchen. Crawling over, he jumped down and landed sitting on the counter next to Cyborg. "Hey dude, you better be making some vegan waffles. I'm not gonna eat any of you kinda waffles and neither wi-" "I'm not hungry." Karmy said as she wandered into the room, wearing a black pair of Nicole's sweatpants and a red tank top. Was that the only color that girl had? All her clothes were big on Karmy so she looked even smaller with them on. "Not feelin' too hot right now, and after that incident, I'd rather not eat waffles anymore." she sat down on the counter next to Beast Boy. "At all." she put her feet up and pulled her knees close. "Ever."

It wasn't a hard job, honestly Thorne had made it out to be like something that only Metallo could do, but it was just heavy lifting. Move one package from one warehouse into a truck, and then ride with it to outside Gotham. Protection for a package and some heavy lifting, not exactly assassinating the president, but still if you were gonna ship one massive hunk of metal out of the city why not make a trip of it and get it to load up some things while you were at it. Still something rung sour about the whole thing. Maybe it was just that Thorne had a far from trustworthy reputation, or maybe it was that smile that he'd worn when talking about it, or maybe it was just the fact that the warehouse he'd sent Metallo too was smack dab in the middle of the Gotham industrial district and didn't appear to be housing too many wares at the moment.

The place was damn near empty, only a few crates, admittedly large crates none of them shorter than six feet, and all of them probably weighted over a hundred pounds, but still. It smelled fishy. Though there was a fish processing plant across the way.



Back at the pent house Thorne was putting on his Sunday best, adjusting his tie as he watched himself in the mirror. He'd gotten old, he didn't remember when exactly that had happened but it had happened sure enough. He was old and the city was going to eat him alive if he let people realize it. People like that Metallo, they'd be trouble if he got any older, and the cigars probably weren't helping him fight off the reaper any. Still Crime Lords dreamed of gentle deaths, no reason to be afraid of it just yet. There was plenty more to do before then. "Roxie, can I trust you to deal with our friend?"

"Yessir Mr. Thorne. I can call her right now if you'd like." The raven haired woman smirked, retrieving her cellphone from her purse as he boss donned his hat & coat.

"Yes, why don't you do that. I'll be out for a bit, picking up another 'friend' from the airport. I'm trusting you to get this done Roxie, your in charge. Don't fail me." Thorne stepped into the elevator with a half dozen of his boys before waiting for a response.

"Oh don't worry boss. I won't." Roxie was used to that sort of thing by now, and she just dialed her new favorite number into her cell.
"Barbara? Its me."

Barbara excitingly flipped her phone out only to realize the caller ID did not present Dick's face on it. Instead it was an unknown number. Back then, Barbara didn't add Roxie's number to her phone. She was about to ignore the call when she figured she didn't have anything better to do. "Who's me?" Barbara asked getting up and walking out of the common room of Titan's Tower to hear the phone better.

"Ouch." Roxie feigned a bit of personal injury, smiling though she did. "It's Roxie, remember me. Told you about Thorne's plot to off the X kid? Genuinely tried to be your friend despite our differences." The mob secretary smirked. She didn't really blame Barbara for forgetting her, it wasn't like they were close personal friends, just yet anyway. "Look I'm calling because I've got something you might be interested in. It's Corben, Metallo, the guy who... you know... Anyway Thorne's stuck up a deal with him. He's got him moving packages or something in a warehouse here in Gotham, once he's done Thorne's going to ship the whole mess, Metallo included out of town. This could be your last chance at him Barbara."

Barbara unintentionally took a step back in response of Roxie's message to her. She shook her head. "I don't know if I can get back to Gotham in time, we kind of ducked out to Jump City several nights ago." Barbara sighed. "And you don't know how much I want Corben. You'll never know."

The Panty Raider, or now going by Levis, had ended his very short and very pathetic villain spree. Now, he was working to open his own clothing store with, you guessed it, pants galore. Though, he still had his uniform and weapon stashed away just in case... He felt the need to steal someone's pants.

(Had to be done XP)

Crimson stopped forming his shields when luna looked at him. Crimson definetley did not want everyone to think of him as paranoid. He then gave Luna a friendly wave and walked over to the window. "So whereabouts in Colorado is the pit?" he asked.

Corben smelled something funny, and it sure as hell wasn't the fish. Nobody went out of their way to find him for a lifting job, they could rent a forklift or hire some metahuman for a fraction of the dificulty. No, Thorne had something going on- only a few goods, a lifting job? Please.

Metallo partly blamed the fact that there was manhunt for him going on right now for his paranoia. But he was in the ring now, and the last thing he needed was to add another person to his already massive list of people that wanted his iron ass on a plate.

Metallo decided to play along with Thorne and shlep his toys around- for now. He kept constantly looking around at Thorne's boys, ready punt them to the moon with the slightest provocation he was so skeptical right now.....


It had been a long talk between Cyrah and Cassius the night before, and whereas Cassius was able to pass out relativeley quick, Cyrah's mind was racing at speeds that would make the Flash slobber with envy. She decided to whip out her journal and use it for once.

Dad says I ought to put my thoughts on paper, might as well give it a shot.

Lazarus pits: What do I know about them. Well, damn near everything. It's no secret I'd give anything to rid myself of this goddamn curse that was forced down my throat, and if these pits could be the ticket, I'd be the dumbass of the century not to take this chance. Lord knows I spent enough time raiding information about this kind of stuff.

But

Can I really do it? My brother needs this, and without his sight, we loose our biggest rescource. He helped design the damn thing and was in the original, with him at 100%, we can turn this thing inside out.

Maybe I'm over thinking this. Dad said: 'Family first, at all costs' to me once. Given the choice, I really shouldn't have to be asked to know that it would be nothing short of selfish to propose myself go int he pit.

We'll see what tommorow brings.

Cyrah stuffed her journal under her seat and continued to try and drift off unsuccesfult untill she heard Greyson moving about.

"Okay guys wake up. This is it. We're going in." Dick said pulling his mask over his eyes. "That's what she said." Damian said waking up and pulling over his Red X mask, "Why am I here again? Do I have to come or can I just stay in the ship and watch Adam Sandler movies?" Red X asked Batman. "C'mon, you'll get some exercise. Who knows what's down that mine shaft." Batman said still trying to wake everyone up. "Lazarus Pit is down the mine shaft, can I go back to sleep?" Red X complained. "No Damian."

Alice dug into her waffle. She wasn't going to try to even tell Karmy to eat. Waste of breath. Cyborg and Red Robin were talking to each other when they began to call for Beast Boy. "Hey Beast Boy! Cyborg tells me you've really softened up on video games!"

"Then you're in luck." Roxie smirked lightly, taping quietly on her boss's laptop computer. "Thorne's got him loading up some stolen tech here, but once he's done the tech, and Metallo, are heading out of town." She smirked lightly, as she was actually adjusting the orders for the truck drivers, specifically to take them by Jump City. "And they're heading your way. Looks like they're gonna take the 904 Highway west, and try to avoid most of the major cities along that way. If you hurry you should be able to cut them off before they get too far."





"Come on, Thorne wanted this thing moving twenty minutes ago." The truck driver was antsy. Everyone involved in this thing needed to get out of Gotham for one reason or another, and he was particularly eager to leave the glum city before something in a mask showed up.

The unofficial 'foreman' of the little moving project they had going wasn't quiet as eager. "Cool yer jets Marcus, we're on the last crate." It was just the two of them, plus Corben, and though technically he was supposed to be helping Metallo load the truck, the blond thug seemed to have deemed himself 'supervisor.' "Alright, load this last one up and then hop 'n the back. We'll drive ya out of town 'n' to a private airstrip Mr. Thorne's been running. After that, ya help us load this stuff onto a couple of planes, and pick whichever one ya want to get you outta the county... least till things cool down enough fer Mr. Thorne ta call ya back." He didn't seem to like Corben much, but he was just a lowly thug, and Corben was a triumph of modern machinery. In another decade or so, Metallo might've been the basis for robot thugs the like to put honest hard working criminals like Marcus and himself out of work.

Nicole cut her waffle into small pieces picking them by her fork and planting them into her mouth. She chewed quietly watching the duo calling Beast boy.

Over hearing Batman, Luna turned away from Crimson, muttering, "Okay, Batman." Luna tiredly stood up and walked over to Batman, she pulled down her hood showing she was awake.

Beast Boy moved so fast over to Cyborg, The Flash would have been proud. "What was that, Tinman?!" he stood over Cyborg, glaring down at him. Though he had grown a few inches since his years as a titan, he was still no where near Cyborg's height. Luckily right now, he had been sitting down. "Whip out the gamestation big man, we're having a match." he jabbed his finger into Cyborgs head.

"God... You want me to kill him?" Barbara asked her voice shaking. "How long will they be here?" She pulled her mask over her eyes and looked at the common room, still very quiet. "And will I meet you there?"

"Oh no! I've been training Tim here!" Cyborg smirked. "Why don't you face him?"

Rose had curled up on the couch the night before and fell asleep something like a cat. The shouting match between Cyborg and BB proved effective in waking her up, and she dragged herself over to the kichen. He realized she hadn't gottan out of her outfit in days, and by now she must have looked like a car wreck. Needless, she wanted food first. As BB and Cyborg argued, she took the liberty of swiping BOTH of their plates and helping herself to their food.

Metallo continued to ride in the truck with the swiped goods, all the while having that same feeling of 'there's no way it is THIS easy'.

"There's an airstrip about half way between here and Jump. Officially it's been abandoned for nearly a decade, but Thorne's been running shadow flights out of there for almost twice that long. That's where they're taking Corben. I'm leaving Gotham now, if I hurry I should be able to beat them there. Meet me at the airstrip and you can do whatever you want to Jonh Corben. This is your showdown honey, I'm just helping a friend." Roxie snapped her phone closed and headed straight for her car. A blue convertible sports car that really had no business being in Gotham City, but it wasn't like someone was going to steal it from her. The mob secretary tied her raven hair back and pulled a pair of movie-star sunglasses from her purse. Now things got interesting.

"Yessir, Batman sir." Ivy mumbled groggily, shaking her head slowly as if to knock out any lingering feelings of exhaustion. The mention of Lazarus Pit was enough to make her perk up more, and soon she was nearly itching to get down to the mine shaft. Tired or not.

Barbara looked at her phone when Roxie hung up, glanced in the common just to make sure no one cared about her and walked into the garage. Spotting a familiar motorcycle, with a bright yellow "R" on the wheels, she walked it out and onto the streets of Jump City. "Sorry Pixie Boots, but I think its time for Corben to meet some independant justice." She whispered to the R-Cycle.

Batman walked up to Cyrah and knelt down next to her. "Have you given any thought to Lazarus Pit?" He asked her as Damian opened the hatch for everyone to file out and into the Mine shaft.

Cyrah cast Batman a tired look. "I've thought about it, all right." She said, not givining a definitive reply because, frankly, she didn't have one, her mind was still a tummult of feelings and thoughts.

"Okay... We're going now." Batman told Cyrah softly. "C'mon everyone! Let's move! Times wasting!" He said sprinting out. Red X front flipped out the door. "I'm better than you Batman, we should be Red X and Batman from now on." He mocked.

"Uhh, yeah! Let's.. Uhh..." Tim stumbled over his words. "Oh look the Alarm!" He shouted, just then the alarm sounded. "Whoa.. That was creepy." He commented. Alice got up to check the computer. "Its Killer Moth. If anyone here knows him more than anyone its Batgirl." Alice mused looking at the files.

Aw, Ok abby T_T

Cyrah nodded sleepily, getting to her feet and stretching what few muscles she had remaining. She ran over Damian on the way out, not noticing he was there due to how sleepy she was. Zero was carefuly led out by Ivy, Cassius not far behind. "Ready when you are, bossman." Zero said in batman's general direction.

Batman took out a flashlight as they entered the shaft not knowing if everyone had night vision. Damian was cursing under his breath and moving behind Batman. What seemed like hours passed as they pursued downward into the mine shaft. Deeper. Deeper. "The map is so general, how does Ra's expact us to find it? Its like a maze.."

Batgirl rode up to the airstrip that Roxie directed her to. She nodded to her and took off her mask. No doubt the world already knew by now, it still felt weird necertheless. "So he's in there?" She asked her.

Metallo credited himself with being sharp. When he picked up Barbara's voice outside, he began to peice the puzzle together. He used his X-ray vision on the crates, getitng a grim idea. Sure enough- the EM generator that was stolen from S.T.E.A.M. So THAT was it- Thorne dragged him out here to die! Well, Metallo wasn't onto THAT idea with much warmth. He amped up his figting systems, ready to tear into anyone that tried to activate the generator......

"Maybe it's Ra's little joke- he could benefit from us being stuck down here." Zero proposed grimly. "Not likeley- He dosen't seem like the type for parlor tricks like this. I recomend we just keep following the map as best we can." Cassius suggested. Cyrah remained quiet.
