Hello again! I think this may be my favorite of all the stories I've written so far. It's pure, uninterrupted fluff. Beast Boy and Raven fluff, one of the best kinds... Anyway, yeah. This idea attacked me at 12:30 in the morning, so I had no choice but to get up and write it. This one's a lot shorter than my others, the shortest I've written so far, but it's also a lot better than my other story for this pairing. So, here you are! Enjoy, and then review.
DISCLAIMER: I do not own Teen Titans. If I did, Beast Boy and Raven would've gotten together waaaaay before.
His emerald head turned toward her. His eyebrows raised, questioning.
"What are you doing up here?" Raven asked. She sometimes came up to the roof at night, to stargaze, to think, but Beast Boy...?
He smiled a little. "Couldn't sleep. You?"
She crossed the short distance between them and sat down next to him, her arms wrapped loosely around her knees.
"I just... I like it up here, at night," she replied. "It's... nice. Peaceful. And I couldn't sleep either, to be honest," she added.
She glanced over at him. He was leaning back on his hands, staring up at the light-pricked black sky above them. She followed his gaze.
"Beautiful, isn't it?" she said.
His eyes narrowed. "Not really. Not compared to Africa, where there isn't a big city to block out the stars."
She looked at him again. "You know, I've always... wondered. About how it was for you there... about your past."
He closed his eyes and smiled again, a little wider this time. "You'd love it. The sights, and smells..." He sighed. "It's just so... alive. Something's always happening. And the sky..." He looked at her. "That was my favorite part, you know. The sky, I mean. It was so big there... Nothing interrupting it, just one horizon to the other."
He smiled his big grin, the one that, though she'd never admit it, she absolutely adored.
"Maybe I'll take you there someday."
She smiled tentatively in return. "Maybe."
And for just a moment, they weren't heroes, they weren't different – just a boy and a girl, looking up into their little piece of forever.
