Song Used: Seether Ft. Amy Lee - Broken

"Will you marry me?"

Was the question heard throughout the tower. Cyborg was on one knee, asking the girl that he had loved for years. He held out a small black case with a smooth red cloth that held a Bengal amethyst stone that was held by a small gold ring.

I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph; I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

All eyes were on the girl standing above him as they waited for her answer.

"Yes. Yes I will!" Raven said as Cyborg stood to hug her.

The others smiled as they hugged and kissed each other.

"Congratulations!" Robin said to his cybernetic friend as he walked over to shake his hand.

Beast Boy followed Robin and shook Cyborg's hand, while Terra and Starfire admired Raven's ring.

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel light when you're gone away

"So when do you two plan on getting married?

"Well, we both prefer the wintertime, so I'm guessing that we'll probably get married in October or November. Speaking of which, aren't you going to be asking Starfire to marry you soon?" Cy asked as BB watched.

"Shhh! Keep it down." Robin said while placing a finger over his mouth.

"What's funny is that me and Terra were the first to get married huh?"

"Not really, when she came in, your girl chasing days were through."

"I guess you're right. I never thought that we would end up marrying the girls that fought alongside us for so long huh?"

"Yeah, I know what you mean. It seems like only yesterday that I was asking Raven out on our first date. Now look at us."

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Robin said as the guys sat down in the kitchen, while the girls went into the living room.

"So Raven, did you think that Cy would ever ask you to marry him?"

"Not really. Part of me was hoping, but the other part was scared."

"Why? I mean we could see it a mile away that he wanted you to be with him. So why be scared."

"Because at times I wonder why I was given him. He's been there for me more than anyone, and at times I feel that he deserves better."

"But he chose you Raven. He doesn't want anyone else." Starfire said with a smile.

"Are you two going to stay in the tower after you're married?"

"Well Cyborg wants to move back to his hometown, and I'm fine with whatever choice he wants.

"But what do you want?" Starfire asked.

"Like I said, whatever he chooses. I don't mind staying in the tower since we've spent so much time here, but if we move to his hometown, it'll be a better setting for our children since we may retire from the crime-fighting business at that time.

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

All of the titans gathered in the living room for a big dinner to celebrate the marriage of Cyborg and Raven.

"I would like to propose a toast to Cyborg and Raven." Robin said, as he lifted his glass of wine. "May you both live the happy life that you both deserve."

They all stood and toasted each other, then sat back down to eat. They all enjoyed the pleasant conversation as they ate the big dinner that Cyborg made for them. The titans were about to eat their desert, but the alarm went off.

"UGH! This always happens!" Cy said as they went to see what was going on.

"It's the HIVE, they're robbing Jump City National Bank." Robin said as they looked to see what the trouble was.

"Do they know when we're trying to have a life, because this happens almost every time." Cyborg grunted.

"Yeah I know, but there's only one thing we can do about it. Titans! Go!" Robin said as the left the tower.

At Jump City National Bank, the Titans and the HIVE engaged in battle. Cyborg and Raven were defending each other and fighting side by side as usual, but with more passion. The battle was favoring the Titans this time because they were working as a cohesive team.

Raven saw Terra was about to be attacked from behind by Mammoth, but she used her powers to send him flying through a wall. Gizmo took advantage of this and sent a decoy to draw Cyborg's attention away, then he nailed him in the neck. The hit sent him head first into a wall.

Robin took down Gizmo with a flying dropkick with help from one of his grappling hooks, as Raven flew over to check on her soon to be husband. He didn't move one inch. She provided a shield to protect him from any other attacks, while the other Titans finished off the HIVE.

When the battle was over, they took Cy to the nearest hospital. At the hospital, they talked to the doctor about Cyborg's condition.

"Well, we did a C.A.T. scan, and it doesn't look good."

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel light when you're gone away


"So what's wrong with him?" BB asked.

"His body is fine, but the impact on his head almost broke his neck. Also, his brain activity is slower than what it should be."

"How should it be?" Robin asked.

The doctor picked up Cyborg's chart to show them what he meant.

"See, this is what his brain activity should be." He said as he pointed to several peaks on one chart. "This is what it is now." He said as he rolled over to the next page.

The peaks were a lot smaller and were a lot less of them.

"What does this mean?" Starfire asked.

"It means that if he gets any worse, his brain could die and so would he."

The titans hung their heads as they looked at him.

"We're still running tests, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. In the morning, we should be able to see if he'll recover. You can stay for the night. Maybe it'll help." The doctor said as he left the room.

"It's all my fault." Raven said as she sat next to Cyborg.

"No it's not Raven. You didn't know that was going to happen." Robin said as he placed a hand on her shoulder while she held Cyborg's hand in hers.

"But I was right next to him. I should've seen it." She said as tears rolled down her eyes.

"It's my fault Raven. I should've seen Mammoth behind me." Terra said trying to help out.

No one spoke after that. They just stayed by Cy's side all night. Robin held Starfire, Beast Boy held Terra, while Raven laid her head on Cyborg's chest. She would wake up every now and then to see the others holding each other and wonder if she would ever get to enjoy that.

The morning came at a very slow pace. Raven was the first one to wake up. She left the others to go get some coffee for all of them. When she returned, she saw that the doctor was talking to the others. She didn't hear what he was saying, but their faces said it all.

"I'm sorry, but he's in a coma." The doctor said as she approached the door.

Raven dropped all of the coffee and ran. The others saw her and followed, but Robin cut them off. He decided that she needed to be alone right now. Instead they all stayed by Cyborg's side.

"Is there anything that we can do?" Robin asked.

"I'm sorry, but there isn't. I wish that there was." He said with sympathy in his voice.

The doctor lowered his head, then left. Outside of the hospital, Raven kept running. Tears streaming down her eyes. She stopped outside of the parking lot.

"Why? Why? Why?" was all that she asked as she stood there.
