AU. Robin still hates himself for making the biggest mistake of his life: Red X. The self hate, the self loathing are his constant companions and his self worth as a hero is being threatened by the presence of Slade. Just how much longer could he tolerate his incompetence of allowing this villain loose in the city? Just how many more people would be hurt because of his failure?
But because of his extreme anger and hatred towards the man, he doesn’t see the trap that was set up for him. But when Slade attempts to blackmail Robin in becoming his apprentice, the two of them discover something shocking that changes Robin’s whole outlook on his identity. As he struggles to figure out who he truly is, he learns that things aren’t always as they seem and that sometimes in life there are second chances for everyone.
Will Robin be able to let go of the self hate and let new love fill the void? And will Robin be able to discover the real man behind the mask? Both his own and the one that conceals Slade?
Sometimes people in life aren’t who they seem to be.
