Disclaimer: I own nothing. As usual. WHY MUST YOU KEEP REMINDING ME?!When You Smile
"Beast Boy, will you please me alone? I just want to read my book."
"But you haven't heard the punch line! You'll really like it! I bet I can make you smile!"
"I said leave me alone."
"I'm going to my room."
"…Fine. Be that way."
"Dude, why do you keep trying to make her smile? It's obvious that she doesn't find you funny."
"Shut up Cyborg… I'm going to my room."
"Geez, how sulky are you?"
"…I wonder why I do keep trying… maybe I should… yeah…uh huh… that sounds good. Hmm… maybe if I… yeah! Perfect! Wow, took me longer than I thought. What shall I do with it now? Maybe I should give it to… nah, she wouldn't want it. Well… I guess I could just slide it under her door. That wouldn't hurt. Where's an envelope? Ah, here's one. Just need to write her name on the front and… done! OK, now that I'm outside her door it doesn't seem like such a good idea. Ah, what the heck, I'm already here. There… hmm… wonder if Cyborg wants to play Street fighter 2000."
"What's this? Urgh, Beast Boy again. It's probably the punch line to that terrible joke. Let's see…"When You Smile
By Beast Boy
It's like a project
It must be worked hard at
Must not be given up on
It's like a miracle
Many don't believe in them
But they do happen
It's like a diamond
Shining on a black velvet cushion
It's so rare and perfect
It's like the first snowflake
Falling from the grey sky
It's so beautiful and special
It's like an old movie
With the happy ending
It makes you feel good inside
It's like a sunset over the sea
You can see it everyday
And still want more
It's like washing away the dirt
To reveal the beauty underneath
It's always there
It's like a precious jewel
Buried under rocks
Just waiting to be discovered
It's like a cure for a disease
It can save so many people
If you only want it to
It's like my life's ambition
Something I keep striving for
It's like my life isn't so bad
Everything feels so much better
When you smile
"… Did he really write this? It's so… well, it's beautiful. Hardly Shakespeare quality, but still… he wrote this for me? So this is why he keeps trying."
"I wonder if she read it yet. I can't believe the others went for pizza without us! They are SO mean… hey; a piece of paper just came under the door to the main room. It's from… Raven? What does it say?"
You don't need jokes to make me smile.
(A/N: OK, spur of the moment thing. it was originally just a poem, but I thought it would be better with the talking around it. What do you think?)
