Something to Be-Part One
Chapter One-Questions of the Heart
"Robin?" a concerned voice called.
He turned and smiled at her. "Hi, Star."
"May I sit with you, friend?" Starfire asked, her emerald eyes worried.
"Of course," Robin replied, sounding far away. Starfire quietly observed her friend before retreating into her own thoughts.
Time passed quickly, though it seemed to be going slowly. Star wished to talk to Robin, about anything, even the weather. But she didn't, knowing he didn't want to talk. Something was troubling him, and she wished desperately that he would tell her, but as he was Robin, he wouldn't. Starfire didn't know it, but just her presence made Robin feel better.
Robin looked down at the fallen angel in his arms. She had been knocked from the air, and he had saved her. She looked back at him, smiling.
"Thank you, Robin," Starfire had whispered.
"Anytime," he said, feeling awkward. He set her down gently, and she surprised him by taking his hand and placing a soft kiss on his cheek.
End of Flashback
Why was it only she who affected him this way? He had no reaction at all when Raven said his name. Why did he seem to melt every time Star said it? Why could he only think about her? How many times had he lain awake dreaming about the day when he finally worked up the courage to ask her out? And on the other hand, what if she didn't like him back? What then? Starfire would never want to hurt him; whether she had feelings for him or not, he was still her best friend. And, knowing the extent of his stubbornness, he would always be her best friend.
Raven was coming up to the roof to meditate (and escape from Cyborg and Beast Boy's video game obsession) when she noticed Robin and Starfire sitting very close together.
'They're having a moment,' she thought, smiled and then realized what she was doing and went back inside.
"Starfire?" Robin asked timidly, concerned about his friend's silence. "Are you OK?"
"I am perfectly fine, though I thank you for your concern," Star replied, smiling. Robin returned the smile and put an arm around her.
"Wahoo! A new high score! Go Beast Boy, go Beast Boy, get funky!" Beast Boy yelled triumphantly.
Raven rolled her eyes, muttered that Beast Boy and Cyborg were idiots, and went to her room.
"What's her problem?" Cyborg asked.
Beast Boy was about to answer when the phone in Cyborg's arm rang. It was Bumblebee.
"Hey, Sparky. Wanna get some pizza?" Bee asked coyly. (Cyborg's eyes become little hearts)
"Uh, uh…" he stammered.
"He'll be there," Beast Boy answered for him.
"Dude…how are you ever going to handle a relationship with her if you can't even speak?" Beast Boy demanded after Bumblebee hung up.
By now Cyborg had regained his composure.
"Oh, go kiss Raven," Cyborg said grumpily.
And that shut Beast Boy right up.
'OK, Robin, you can do this, you are the Boy Wonder after all. If you love her so much, she should know the truth. Just say it.'
These and other similar thoughts had been racing around Robin's mind for ten minutes straight.
At the exact same time, she said, "What is bothering you?"
Robin blinked behind the mask that obscured his sapphire-blue eyes. "Nothing," he replied hastily, looking away.
"Don't tell me this is nothing, Robin."
He looked back at her, gazing into her green eyes thoughtfully. "Nothing is bothering me. I promise."
"If nothing troubles you, then why are you so quiet? Please, I will listen to your problems and help in any way I can. Please."
"I don't have a problem, Star," he said, but not in a mean way.
'You shouldn't be lying to her; you love her,' said a nagging voice inside his head.
'But if she hadn't asked what was wrong, I definitely would have told her that I love her,' Robin argued silently with the nagging voice.
'OK, it's now or never,' said an entirely new voice that sounded oddly like Larry.
"Starfire?" he asked again.
"Yes?" she replied, turning to face him.
Robin smiled, leaned in, and kissed her.
