*A/N* It was a real treat to write this story, guys. My thirst for BBRae has now been quenched. But if again, if anyone would like a sequel, please let me know. Enjoy! *A/N*
Jennifer screamed in horror as she saw Morris decapitated in front of her with a heavy sheet of steel. Frau Brückner, frenzied and soaked with blood, pinned Jennifer to the ground with the weapon, forcing it against her neck.
"He was diseased… but he was my son!" Brückner said tearfully, before her insane rage overtook her again. "And you have… why didn't I kill you before!?"
Beast Boy sat crouched on the edge of his seat, his eyes glued to the screen. Raven, having seen the film before, took greater pleasure in watching him react to the mayhem unfolding on screen.
Brückner collapsed when an assailant struck her from behind. Inga, the domesticated chimp of Professor McGregor, had slashed the lunatic with a straight razor. Screeching, Inga finished the job by repeatedly slicing bloody gashes into Brückner's throat and face.
Jennifer and Inga embraced each other as the film ended.
"Yeah, baby! Chalk one up for the Animal Kingdom!" Beast Boy put a fist in the air and whooped.
"Beast Boy, I'm glad you enjoyed the movie, but seriously, you need to shut up. People are staring." Raven scolded.
Indeed, the handful of other audience members had turned to look at the cheering changeling, although most of them were amused at his enthusiasm.
"Oh, sorry." Beast Boy said, sitting back down and crossing his arms. "That was cool, I guess." He said, in a subdued, pretentious voice he pulled from nowhere.
"But it was pretty lame, too. Everything's lame." he continued, creating a caricature of an angst ridden teenager.
Raven couldn't help but give a small, dry chuckle. "Okay, thatwas kind of funny."
"I need to get into the proper mindset, right? It's not fair, you're like that 24/7." Beast Boy teased, prodding Raven in the shoulder.
"I'm surprised you know what 'mindset' means." Raven fired back.
"You know, you're lucky I'm so nice. Any other guy couldn't handle you being so rude all the time."
Raven smirked. "You're lucky I'm patient enough to deal with you."
"There you go again, sourpuss." Beast Boy jeered.
Raven's retort was cut off by the beeping of her communicator. She flipped it open, and the screen showed Robin on the other end.
"Can I help you?" she inquired, raising an eyebrow impatiently.
"Just checking to see if you have your communicator on this time around." Robin defended gently. "You guys having a good time?"
"We would be if you hadn't interrupted us. Out." Raven flipped her communicator shut and put it in her pocket. The formal wear of Friday had been exchanged for more casual clothes, so Raven wore dark blue jeans, black sandals, and a sleeveless black shirt with a skull in the center.
"I'm gonna run to the bathroom." Beast Boy stated, standing up with a bit of flourish.
"Don't get lost." Raven goaded.
"Bully." Beast Boy retorted, and he hurried down the steps. Entering the hallway, he paused to stretch out a bit, hearing his joints pop gratefully. After giving his neck a good crank, he entered the restroom.
"Earth below us, drifting, falling…" he idly sung to himself as performed his necessaries. After finishing, he turned to the sink, and found himself staring at a well-built young man with round sunglasses.
"'Sup, Wade?" he greeted cheerfully. The silent employee nodded in greeting. Beast Boy washed his hands, taking more care than he normally would have to make sure they were spotless. He took an extra paper towel to make sure there was no leftover water on his hands.
"So, you two are serious?"
Beast Boy paused in the midst of drying his hands. He looked over to Wade, who was still facing him. Double checking to see if anyone else had entered the restroom, he gave him a look of confusion.
"Uh… did you just say something?" he asked.
"You two are serious?" Wade inquired again. No mistaking it that time.
"Well… Yeah, I think so, I mean-since when do you talk?" Beast Boy couldn't stop himself from asking. Wade shrugged.
"If you don't want to tell me, that's fine." Wade added.
"I…er… well, I don't see why we wouldn't be. But this is only our second date."
Wade pushed his glasses up the bridge of his nose. "You should ask her."
Beast Boy still didn't quite grasp the situation, and he blinked several times before responding again.
"Why?" he asked.
"I just think you should. She's a good match for you." Wade said.
"Oh. Okay." Beast Boy replied. What else could he say?
"I'll see you around." Wade finished. Turning to leave the bathroom, he paused as he reached for the door handle.
"Hope everything works out." He said. And with that, he made his exit. Beast Boy, still clutching his used wad of paper towels, shook his head. "Whatever."
Lobbing his garbage into the can, he exited the bathroom and went back inside the theatre and hurried up to his seat.
"Right on time. The credits are about to start." Raven greeted. Beast Boy took a seat next to her. After a period of silence, he spoke up.
"Are we serious?"
Raven gave him a look. "I beg your pardon?"
"I mean, I was just thinking. I've really been enjoying your company… if that doesn't sound creepy. If it does, I guess-"
Raven cut him off by giving him a generous kiss on the cheek.
"Don't ask stupid questions, Garfield. Now watch the movie." She said, her voice as flat and subdued as ever. She rested her head upon his shoulder after answering, and Beast Boy once again felt his senses tingle when the sweet smell of lavender graced his nose. Sighing, not from dissatisfaction, but from pleasure, he rested his head atop hers, breathing in the scent of not only her perfume, but her natural smell as well, which was just as, if not more, hypnotizing.
"I'll take that as a yes."
*A/N* Thanks to all who have been kind enough to praise this story, I never expected this much popularity. I hope you've enjoyed going on this little adventure with me, I certainly had a blast. Until next time. *A/N*
