"Titans go!" Robin yelled as his team, the Teen Titans, rushed forward to battle against Slade's army of robots.
"Azarath, Metreum, ZINTHOS!" Raven yelled, using her powers to move a large piece of machinery over top a cluster of robots, crushing them into the earth. Cyborg charged up the laser canon on his arm. He aimed at some robots who were standing in a line, then fired. The robots flew high into the air, then soared into the Jump City bay.
"Boo Ya!" Cyborg cheered happily, making his trademark peace sign. Starfire flew in towards a pack of robots. Throwing a starbolt left and right, she took every robot out besides one. The robot chased the tameranian girl from behind. Starfire turned around in mid air and shot the familiar green lasers out of her eyes, blowing a hole through the chest of the robot, short circuiting him and making him fall to the ground.
"Now that is what I call falling for a girl," Starfire said with a giggle. Beast boy, changing into his normal animals such as a gorilla or dinosaurs, took out a group of eight robots.
"Eight in a row and not a scratch on the green man!" Beast boy said with a smile. All the sudden, a robot head came flew in and hit Beast boy in the back, sending the animal changer to meet the ground.
"Dude! Why ja do that! You messed up my mane, man!" Beast boy yelled spitting dirt out of his mouth.
"Couldn't help muh self, BB" Cyborg said with a smile. Robin, surrounded by the remaining robots, prepared himself for the fight. The robots charged forward, and so did Robin. Five seconds later, each robot was sizzling face down on the ground.
"Well, Slade may not have been here this time, but we'll see h-"
"Robin, we get the point," Raven said, she and the team's leader looking over at Beast boy, who was looking sadly at the reflection of the setting sun.
"Beast boy, is something the matter?" Starfire asked touching down on her feet next to Beast boy. Beast boy looked down at this feet angrily. He made her lie to him. He made her use him. He made her trick BB into thinking that they had something special. And now that has all happened, she's gone. Beast boy clenched his fist, making his fingers crack.
"I'm fine," Beast boy grunted storming off, pushing Robin and Cyborg to the side.
"He says he is fine, but he is not at all well to me," Starfire said as the team watch the jokester of the team walk towards Titans Tower.
"He needs time to heal. You have to remember, he was the closets to Terra," Robin said, putting his communicator onto his belt.
"Who knows, BB may never heal," Cyborg said, watching their friend fade off into the distance.
Terri walked in the moonlight alone, each of her steps more powerful than the other, like the anger growing inside of her.
"I will make him pay... for what he's done to me... so help me, I will make Slade pay..." She said forcefully to herself as her eyes narrowed, "He may have taken my family, but her can't take away my dignity!" Terri climbed over the tall hillside, reaching the top, which had a cavern to the side.
"This'll have to do. Tonight, I'll camp. Tomorrow, I'll search," Terri said, looking over the horizon. Her eyes stopped to a gray tower shaped like a T.
"Hmm... the Teen Titans. Maybe they can help me find my cousin," Terri said entering the cave. A couple of moments later, she exited the cave to gather fire wood. She came back with a bundle of logs and twigs in her arms.
"This should last me through the night," Terri said, setting the logs and twigs in the right bonfire position and lighting it with the matches she kept in her belt. She took out two pieces of bread and a slice of cheese from her red backpack. She stuck a stick into the sandwich and held it over the fire.
"Nothin' like a grilled cheese sandwich on your sleeping bag alone in a dark cave miles from what used to be your home in search for a mad man," Teri said twirling her dinner in the fire.
Later on that night, Terri is still wide-awake. Her knees up to her chin, she tried to keep herself warm by the fire.
"Bad day to wear shorts, huh Ter?" Terri said, weakly laughing to herself. It was freezing cold and the fire was just about gone. Terri's only way to stay warm was either use her own body heat or get under her sleeping bag.
"Gotta stay awake. Can't fall asleep," Terri said, resting her head on her knees. She looked at her watch on her wrist. It was 3:30 in the morning. She watched the fire die down, seeing the flicker of the flame leave her in an instant to complete darkness. Terri sighed and took her goggles off her forehead. She set them on her backpack and took the rubbed backs out of her brown pigtails. She climbed into the warm fleece red sleeping bag and snuggled from the comfort.
"A quick nap wouldn't kill me. Maybe an hour or... two and I'll be... up... and..." Terri said dozing of into a deep sleep.
"Good morning friends! I have woken up early to make you the wondrous feast of breakfast! Enjoy!" Starfire said joyfully setting plates of... whatever it was... in front of each member of the Teen Titans.
"Um... Thanks Starfire," Robin said wincing at the mysterious meal. Each member picked up his or her forks cautiously. They cut through the comestibles and stuck them inside their mouths. Each chewed very slowly, soon then tasting the taste.
"Mmm, this is good," Cyborg said taking a bigger bite of the platter.
"It sure tastes all right to me..." Beast boy said licking his lips.
"My question is, what is it?" Raven said putting her fork down. Each Titan member looked over at Starfire, who was holding more of the "breakfast meal".
"Sushi, liver, tuna, and fungus!" Starfire said joyfully. The members of the Titans (besides Starfire) faces turned green, even though Beast boy face was already green. They all got up and rushed towards the bathroom. After a few moments, they all came back, relieved that the food was out of their systems. Starfire smiled and held up the plate.
"Do you wish to dine more friends?"
"NO!" The members yelled turning their heads away from the awful food. All the sudden, the alarm went off.
"Saved by the alarm!" Beast boy cried running up to the computer along with the rest of the team.
"It's Cinderblock, on the outstretch of town. Titans move!" Robin yelled as the Teen Titans rushed out the door of Titans Tower.
Terri awoke with a yawn on her face. She looked at her watch, it was 10:20.
"So much for sleeping for an hour or two..." Terri said as she stretched and cracked her neck, then going into scratching her head. There was then a sudden boom outside of the cave that made Terri jump. She got out of her sleeping bag quickly and pulled her brown hair into two pigtails. She grabbed her goggles and placed them on her head. She exited the cave, seeing some kind of robot made out of cement.
"I don't know who you are, and I don't really care, but I'm not in the mood to be jumped ten feet up in the air," Terri said glaring at the cement beast. It growled as it turned towards Terri, throwing a punch towards her. Terri flipped backwards, avoiding the punch.
"Oh so ya wanna play rough, huh? Just to warn ya, I'm MVP for playing rough!" Terri smuged with a smile. The cement man roared again and threw another punch, but yet again, Terri avoided it.
"Oh, c'mon! Is that all ya got!" Terri blurted running up the cement man's arm and kicking him in the head. He moved back a couple of feet but then took normal stance. Terri landed on the ground, landing on the foot she kicked with. Her face clenched up.
"OUCH!!" She screamed as she hopped on one foot up and down. She quickly recovered and got into to stance.
"I'll give you more of a challenge!" Terri said with a smile. Her eyes than began to glow a bright orange. Her fist glowed and Terri concentrated on the ground under the beast's feet. It caved in, taking the concrete monster along with it. Terri straightened up and brushed her hands.
"Gotta hand it to Terra, she's the one that discovered our powers. Good kith she is," Terri said brushing her bangs back behind her ears. She looked down at her watch. It was 10:22.
"Ha! Only took me two minuets to beat that jerk. Shoulda thought of the cave in thing from the beginning," Terri said looking at the hole she created in the ground. All the sudden, a shadow casted over her. She turned around, to see a maroon mud monster behind her.
"Great, I beat a cement brat, now I gotta fight a zit. This day is going swell," Terri said, avoiding on whatever the thing was punch. Terri jumped up and kicked the over grown pimple like monster, but only to get stuck.
"Hey, let me go you stupid blemish!" Terri said beating on the monster's chest, but only to be sucked into the beast. All the sudden, a flaming arrow came out of no where, burning the beast, causing to make Terri fall. She then was caught by a boy who looked about two years older than she was with blonde hair and what looked like a Robin Hood hat on.
"Chicks like you should be at home talking on the phone at home," The boy said.
"For your info, buddy, I was doing just fine," Terri said angrily. The boy looked at her strangely.
"Doesn't look like it. If fine is saying being covered in red gunk, than that means you are fine," The boy said lifting up his eyebrows. His eyes were covered behind a red mask, so Terri couldn't recognize the boy as a person of her past.
"Well how about putting me down. I'll show you I can do this all by my self," Terri blurted. The boy put her down and stepped off to the side. Terri turned around and focused her powers on the big bolder down below. She raised her hands, controlling the rock as it moved in the air. Once the rock was above her head, she swifted her hands forward, causing the rock to fly into the monster. The monster pelted to the ground, falling over the cliff. Terri smiled and stood up straight. She turned around and smiled smug like at the boy, who looked shocked.
"Well, how about that, Sir Robin Hood. Didn't need your help after all!" Terri blurted.
"For your info, the name's Speedy, sidekick to the Green Arrow," The boy claming himself Speedy said stepping forward.
"Uh huh, yeah, the Green Arrow. Nice man. Like his hat," Terri said examining her fingernails. Speedy looked at the girl angrily.
"And who are you? I haven't seen your face anywhere," Speedy said raising one eyebrow.
"Name's Terri. No one special. Not anybody's sidekick," Terri said, but then smiled smug like, "I'm to good to be anybody's side kick,"
"Oh ho ho, your pretty tough to say that," Speedy said glaring at the brunette in pigtails. All of the sudden, there was a low rumble beneath their feet. Speedy looked at Terri sharply.
"Hey, don't look at me like that. It's not me that's doing this!" Terri said trying to stand her ground. The ground started to crumble under her feet. She quickly jumped to Speedy's side. The ground then started to cave in. Speedy quickly grabbed Terri and shot an arrow on top of the cave that was off to the side. The both of them swung on top of it, watching the ground crumble away. The cement monster then came out of the hole in the ground and climbed onto the platform.
"Seems to me, these men like you," Speedy sarcastically said. Terri stared at him and shook her head.
"Do you know who the heck these... things are?" Terri said looking at the cement monster, who was roaring and punching the ground, causing the earth and practically anything on top of it to shake.
"The rock head's name is Cinderblock. The pink zit is Plasmus. There work for-"
"Slade, I knew it,"
"What do you know about Slade?"
"Almost there, guys!" Robin yelled as the Titans sprinted to the mountains.
"Why couldn't we all just take Cy's car! It would have been a lot quicker!" Beast boy yelled.
"Hey! Nobody is goin' in my car!" Cyborg yelled as the Teen Titans sprinted up the hillside. The ground shook as they got closer to the top, causing the titans that were on land to some what loose their balance.
"Cinderblock doesn't seem to happy," Starfire said floating in the air next to Raven.
"If I was made of cement, I wouldn't be to happy either," Raven said. The Teen Titans yet again ran up the hill, arriving to the top seeing Cinderblock slamming his fist into the ground in front of a cave.
"I don't know what your deal is, Cinderblock, but we'll help you solve it. Titans go!" Robin yelled as the Teen Titans rushed forward. Using all their powers, the Titans at least got a couple of shots on Cinderblock, but not enough to take the monster down.
"Hey, Block head! Ya got anything besides empty space in that head of yours!" Beast boy yelled up at the monster. Cinderblock then took his fists and punched about the spot in front of where Beast boy was standing. The ground crumbled beneath his feet, and he started to fall in the pit below him.
"Well, if it isn't the Titans, once they're done, I'd like to talk to them," Terri said watching the Titans travel up the hill. Speedy looked at her with one eyebrow raised.
"You wouldn't understand,"
"Well, I'm somewhat of a Titan. You can tell me,"
"Nope, like I said before. I don't need your help," Terri watched the Titans carefully. Each one had one unique thing about them. How they fought. What they said. What powers they do or don't have.
"Hey, Block head! Ya got anything besides empty space in that head of yours!" The green boy held up at Cinderblock. The cement punched his fist into the ground, causing the green man to fall.
"Holy crap!" Terri yelled. She grabbed a rock and soared on it. As she did this, she grabbed her lasso that was hanging on her belt. She swung the lasso around her head than throw it around the green man's waist and brought him onto the rock she was making float in the air.
"T-Terra?" Beast boy stuttered, trying to make out the face that was in front of him.
"Nope, but close enough," Terri said with a smile.
