"She's gone?"


He was still staring at the spot she was occupying only moments ago, hoping that if maybe he stood there long enough, wished her back, that she would still be there, like she had never left. As immature as he could be, he knew that it wasn't possible, but it didn't stop him from trying.

The leader of the Titans sighed, sitting on the edge of the roof, letting his feet dangle. The green skinned teen could see his cape fluttering in the wind out of the corner of his eye. Silence was the only sound besides the wind for a few moments before Robin spoke.

"She'll be back soon."


His voice sounded empty, as if seeing her leave took the life from him. His eyes drained of color, he turned to watch the sun rise higher into the sky.

"Hey Rob?"


He paused. "...How do you know you want to spend your life with someone?"


No one said anything to him at breakfast, not even Starfire. She simply gave him a reassuring smile before chatting with Robin and Cyborg.

He felt like he was in a silent movie. His world had turned black and white and deafening silent. Cliche as it sounded, Raven brought color to his world, filling it with the occasional laughter if he was lucky enough.

He tried to play games with Cyborg, but his heart wasn't in it. He slept for the rest of the day. No one disturbed him.

Well, at least he though so until he was woken up by someone lightly shaking him. He mumbled grumpily that he was up, until he felt the familiar gesture of fingers tucking his hair behind his ear and tugging on it lightly, playfully. He shot up in excitement, nearly bonking heads with the person he recognized as none other than a certain empath.

"Raven, what are you doing here? What time is it? Why didn't you tell me you were coming? What-"

He was silenced by her hand covering his mouth.

"Shh," she shushed, slowly taking her hand away. "I figured it out."

"But how? You were barely gone a day! I thought it was going to take a weeks!"

She sat down on his bed, playing with the sheets absentmindedly.

"After I left, I started thinking about us. The first time we met."

Beast Boy made a face. "Oh."

She made a similar face, but smiled after. "I know. But I realized why I can't focus."



"Care to share?"

A rare blush spread across her features, and she glanced away.

At first Beast Boy furrowed his brows in confusion. What could possibly make Raven blush? She only blushed when he teased her about...

"Oh." It clicked. When they got together. Going too far. Raven crying.

But still, what did...?

"Oh." Another lightbulb, the final piece of the puzzle. "You don't mean...?"

"Yeah." She was still refusing to look at him. "We have to do...that."

With a sigh, he took her face in his hands, tilting her head to look at me him. Pressing a sweet kiss to her lips, he smiled reassuringly.

"Don't worry. Whenever you're ready, we will. No pressure."

She nodded, melting at the crooked smile he gave her.

"We should do it somewhere else. I don't want to fry your CD player again." He grimaced at that one, and she laughed.

A glance at the clock revealed it was three in the morning. "I don't know about you, Rae, but I'm exhausted and would really like to cuddle and sleep now."

"My name has two syllables, Garfield."

A few moments and rustling of covers later, the couple was drifting off in a peaceful sleep.


"You'll know. Because you won't be able to stand staying away from that person. You'll never get tired of them. Every day is better because they're with you. You might have the occasional spat every now and then, sure, but in the end, it'll be worth it, because your relationship will only be stronger because of it. If you know that's how you feel about someone, don't let them get away. Hold onto them. Because there will be a day when you realize that they feel the same, when they say yes. And if that's how you feel about Raven, Beast Boy, then this tiny little few weeks should mean nothing. Because in the end, she'll be worth it. She always will be."


A/N: I wish I have an explanation for this, I really do. I had everything written, I thought I had it all together, but then I read it over, and...nope. I wasn't feeling it. I scraped it and came up with this sorry excuse for a chapter. Feel free to throw tomatoes at me this time, cause I deserve it.

I've always had this headcannon that Robin is like Beast Boy's mentor, giving him relationship advice and stuff? Eh, anyway.

Oh, and I meant to say it last chapter, but I know Rachel is just Raven's fake name. I appreciate the info guys, but I already knew. Just go with the flow will ya? XP

Well, see ya loves. Stay frosty X3
