Well, it is polite to tell someone why you're about to do violence to them, sure. 

"Heard you were enslaving a child. Where I come from, we don't look kindly on that."

She laughs. "I'm raising this child. I suppose you want to take it to live in filth instead of finery?"

Permalink

Distraction, deflection. Robin ignores it and gets to the point. 

"Could they leave if they chose?" 

Permalink

"They'll leave eventually."

Permalink

Robin growls, flashing pointed canines.

"Not what I asked." 

Permalink

"Who do you think you are? Leave at once and don't return."

Permalink

"Answer my question." 

Permalink

They smile, soft and dangerous. 

"Your death." 

Permalink

"Protect me!" the fae shouts, as loud as she can.

One human bursts through a nearby door and tries to step between Robin and the yellow fae. There are probably more on the way.

Permalink

Robin is fast, and strong, and has no qualms about simply flinging the humans aside when they get in the way. This isn't going to do much to slow them down. 

Permalink

Nothing else is, either. Fae are somewhat tougher than humans, but not enough to stop Robin from doing whatever they like.

Permalink

Robin slashes the yellow fae's throat, leaves her bleeding out while they search the rest of the building. They've run out of patience with this place and its wrong fae who use humans as slaves and hide behind them in a fight. 

Permalink

A few rooms in, there's a small child who looks up at them with suspicion.

Permalink

They move back so they're not blocking the doorway and crouch down, putting them closer to the child's level. 

"Hello." 

Permalink

"Do you want to get out of here?" 

Permalink

They make a face of intense concentration, clearly weighing their options.

Permalink

Robin waits, idly shifting the colour-patterns of their skin while keeping an ear out for trouble. 

Permalink

Eventually they come to a decision and nod. "Yes, please."

Permalink

"Good. Come with me." 

They stand and hold out a hand to the child. 

Permalink

The child approaches cautiously and takes it.

Permalink

And Robin leads them quietly through the house, back the way they came unless there's an obvious side exit. 

With every step, they're on edge, alert for any sign of pursuit or alarms being raised, but none of it shows. Robin's face is calm, their steps are light, and their fingers curled around the child's small hand are gentle. 

Permalink

The fae is where Robin left her, alive but not in a state to do anything but glare at them.

The child grips Robin's hand tighter when they see her.

Permalink

Robin squeezes the child's hand and glares right back as they walk to the exit.
