Here's chapter 2! Sorry it's so late. I wasn't sure where to go with the story and had a bit of writers block. But now I know what's going to happen with the rest of the story :D
I have a date with Raven. Awesome. One problem, though. What. The. Hell. Are. We. Gonna. Do? I stopped in the middle of the hallway once I realized this. Half of me wants to go ask the "love guru" and the other half of me wants to ask the person who's actually in a relationship. After a second of considering the pros and cons, I head over to the latter: Robin. He would probably annoy me less if I asked for relationship advice.
I walk over to Robins room and knock. "Yo, Robin, you gotta second?"
I hear some shuffling then a muffled, "Uh, sure. Come in."
The door opens and I see Robin and Starfire sitting on his bed. They look very comfortable and casual, but I notice that Starfires hair is messed up a bit.
"Sorry for, er, interrupting." I say, rubbing my neck, "But I was hoping to get some advice from you, Robin. And maybe you can help me out, too, Star."
Starfire smiled at me warmly, "Of course! Anything for my friend. What is it that you require advice on, Beast Boy?"
Robin nodded, "Yeah, go ahead."
"Well, there's this girl that I asked out on a date… and she said yes-"
Starfire's eyes got wide and she zoomed up to me, her face close, "Really? Who?"
My face went red, "Uh…" I was hesitant to tell them it was Raven. I was pretty sure she would get embarrassed if anyone else knew that we had, uhm, romantic feelings for each other at the moment.
"Star, just let him ask us his question before you start interrogating him." Robin said. He seemed in a hurry to get this done. I wonder why.
Starfire ignored him, "Is it our dear friend Raven?"
"Wha-! Er-" I tripped up on my words, not sure how to reply. Luckily, Robin came to my rescue without knowing it.
"No way, Star. Even if Beast Boy was interested she wouldn't have said yes. Now let him finish." He said, exasperated.
She looked disappointed as she sat back down next to him. I sighed and continued, "Well, I was wondering, what did you guys do for a first date?"
Starfires eyes lit up again, "Oh, we went to the fair! But we were interrupted by the aliens who attacked us. None the less, it was so romantic! Robin got me the melting sugar of cotton and we rode on the spinning wheel-"
Robin laughed, "That wasn't our first date, Starfire. We weren't even together then."
Starfire looked confused, "But isn't that what you do when you are a couple? We do that other times as well."
"Yeah, well, its different when you do that as a couple and when you do that as friends."
Starfire pursed her lips with her eyebrows furrowed, "Oh. Then what was our first date as a couple?"
"I would say it was while we were in Tokyo. After we defeated Brushogun. We celebrated together with everyone then went to walk around town on our own." Robin said, smiling warmly at her.
"Thats all?" I asked. "You don't have to get her ten dozen roses and a limo or anything?"
Robin shrugged, "With Kitten you would,-" Starfire's eyes narrowed at that name, "but it really depends on what her interests are."
"Her interests…?" I suddenly got an idea. "Oh! Cool. Thanks, dude! And dudette!" I walked out, the door shutting behind me. I could hear their muffled voices as I headed to my room.
"No problem- OW! What was that for?"
"Oh, nothing. I thought there was a bug of blood drinking on you, Robin dear."
"Look, I just mentioned Kitten. It's not like I was- OW! Starfire! Stop!"
"It's another insect. Stop moving so I can get it!"
I got to my room and looked for my computer. After half an hour of digging through dirty clothes and unidentifiable food, I found it under a pile of underwear on my desk. I opened it up and dusted it off with a pair of boxers. Once it turned on I started searching for different places I knew Raven would like going to. This date would be amazing if I had anything to say about it.
As I was looking up various date destinations, I started thinking about Starfire's inquiry. Why did she immediately go to Raven? I wondered if Raven told anyone of her feelings before she admitted them to me. It doesn't seem like her, but if she were to tell anyone, Starfire would make sense. Although her ability to keep a secret is questionable. I guess it doesn't matter either way, but I'm still curious as to how long it took her to admit it to Star. Now that I think about it, how long has Raven felt this way towards me? Not longer than me, I'm sure. But, then again, how long have I felt this way about her? When did I even realize I liked her?
I leaned back in my chair, looking at the wall in front of me. I tried to think back on when I first started getting nervous around her. I guess… it would be that time she had that weird relationship thing with that book guy. What was his name? Malcher? Mulchor? Malchior! Yeah, after that whole mess Raven hugged me and… I guess thats when I started trying to be near her a lot more often. But I didn't realize I liked her until later. My eyebrows furrowed together. Man, that guy was a total jerk. I'm glad he's outta the picture.
I shook my head and looked back at my computer. "I need to figure out the schedule. Then clothes… Oh dude. I'm screwed on that part." I said to myself. I took a deep breath and started researching again, determined.
I swear, this is gonna make up for all stuff I've said to her in the past. I'm gonna prove that I can do her creepy- er, interesting stuff too. Tonight, it's all gonna be about her.
Thank you for reading and feel free to give a review!
