"Get out of my mind, now!" Raven warned her two friends while struggling to defeat the red demon that was her father. Her eyes glowed a mysterious white and black energy surrounded her palms serving as a shield to her, Cyborg and Beast Boy. Her two teammates stood rooted to the rocky ground below them. "We can't leave you to deal with this!" BB shouted, pointing an accusing finger at the demonic villain. "If I lose, you'll be stuck in here forever," she replied taking deep breaths because of the tremendous amount of energy she was using.

A bright yellow beam whipped through the air and suddenly collided with the black and purple shield. An enormous blast echoed through the air as the shield exploded. A cloud of dust surrounded the three Titans. Some of the dust cleared off and Raven was seen with her arms crossed in the form of an X. She suddenly thrust her right arm out and shouted, "Go! Now!"

BB and Cyborg slid to the front of the forbidden door that would teleport them out of Raven's mind and back into Titans Tower. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Everything was silent as the grave in the hospital. The only color you could see was white. White were the walls and white was the tile floor. All the Titans were waiting anxiously for good news, hoping, praying, that somehow their friend would be okay. Raven glanced at the ticking clock on the wall every now and then. It was 11:45 p.m.

She glanced at room 16 and slowly drooped her head towards the bright white floor.

Room 16 was the room in which he was dying. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Another yellow beam whipped through the air and was soaring straight for Raven. Beast Boy noticed the beam and quickly ran to protect her. Just as the yellow beam was about to hit her, he sprang up and collided with the fiery beam. A long scream erupted from his mouth and pierced the air. He landed with a loud thump on the ground. His mouth hung open as little streams of blood flowed down the side.

Trigon laughed harshly at the sight. Raven quivered in anger as Cyborg's fist turned into a sonic cannon. Black energy began to surround her palms. The black energy whipped through the air and hit Trigon. The bright blue blast from the sonic cannon followed suit. Trigon screamed as he backed away toward a steep cliff. He took his last step toward the cliff and fell to his rocky doom. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I'm so tired of being here

Suppressed by all of my

Childish fears

He had now been in the hospital for 3 days. Raven continued to stare at the floor in despair. She neither cried nor screamed like Starfire did. She began to think of BB in a good way, not in an annoying way like she always did. She had begun to miss his spiky green hair.

The way he always looked at her with a caring face seemed to soothe her nerves. He would flash a huge smile at her and her insides would flip around and writhe like snakes. She kept it a secret though.

And if you have to leave

I wish that you would just leave

Because your presence still lingers here

And it won't leave

Me alone

That song stuck inside her head ever since BB was sent to the hospital. She felt her eyes water for the very first time in so long. Two sparkling tears fell to her cheeks and plopped onto the floor, each leaving a small puddle. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The smell of tofu eggs filled the entire kitchen. BB placed a plate of tofu eggs in front of Robin and Starfire. "Thanks Beast boy," Robin said with a smirk. "Yes. On my planet such a breakfast feast would mark the arrangement of a marriage. Tell me Beast Boy to whom are you engaged?" Starfire asked, delight gleaming on her face. Beast boy jumped back a little.

Cyborg put a mouthful of egg into his mouth. His eyes grew wide and he spit the tofu eggs out. "This isn't real eggs," he complained. He picked up his mug and drank the milk. His eyes grew wide again. He spat the milk out. "And this isn't real milk!"

The doors to the kitchen slid open and Raven stepped in. A childish smile spread upon BB's green face the moment he caught a glimpse of her in the kitchen. Raven got a glimpse of BB and immediately turned her attention to her awaiting teakettle. Beast Boy stepped beside her as she poured the steaming hot water into her mug and began swirling the teabag. He stuck the frying pan in her face. "Hey Raven, wanna try my tofu eggs?" he asked with a smile.


"It's good. Wakey wakey tofu eggs and bakey."

"Herbal tea."

"C'mon, you could use some breakfast after the way you cooked Dr. ."

She turned toward him, eyes glowing a blood red. She hissed at him. "NO!" she burst out and quickly marched through the kitchen doors with her mug in one hand. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

How she missed seeing the green face of her friend. It seemed like an endless eternity every time she was near him. He was the snow that crunched beneath your feet, a humungous wave on the sandy beach, the fire in the fireplace, everything to her. She felt a hand on her shoulder. She looked up to see her cybernetic friend.

"You should go back to the tower, you need some sleep," he said. Raven growled at him.


Robin joined in the conversation. "Don't worry, we'll watch over him." "Agreed, we will watch over our green friend," Starfire chimed in. Raven looked at all of them. Anger was boiling inside her but she new they were right. Without another word, she strolled towards the swinging hospital doors and disappeared into the cold, stormy weather.
