Sometimes I need to remember just to breathe

Sometimes I need you to stay away from me

Sometimes I'm in disbelief, I didn't know

Somehow I need you to go

Raven sat down on her bed. Her stomach had gotten twice its normal size, now that she was close to coming into labor everyday. She wondered what her baby would look like. She hoped he would have large violet eyes like herself. Perhaps pointed ears like his father, Beast Boy.

A crystal tear ran down her cheek as she thought about her Beast Boy. For the last couple of days he had been cooped up in his room, looking at one of his pictures. A picture of Terra. Then she thought, "He says he loves me but he must love Terra more than all. Why am I so stupid to think he'll want me and me only?"

There was a knock at the door. Beast Boy walked in and sat down next to Raven. With his slender hand he gently rubbed the large curve of her stomach. He leaned closer to Raven's ear and whispered, "One more week."

Don't stay

Forget our memories

Forget our possibilities

What you were changing me into

Just take myself back and

She couldn't take it. She pushed Beast Boy's hand away from her belly and stood up. He stood up with her, "What's your deal?"

She stared at him with eyes of pain, "Don't come around acting like you care."

"What are you saying?"

"I know you love Terra and not me," she said. Beast Boy stared at her with his large green eyes. How could she believe that?

Supporting her back, she walked out of the room and ran to get some herbal tea. Beast Boy just stood there, almost in tears. Raven...thinks he doesn't love her.

Don't stay

Forget our memories

Forget our possibilities

Take all your faithlessness with you

Just take myself back and

Don't stay

Beast Boy's head snapped up upon hearing someone coming in. It was Robin. He looked so worried. What had happened?

"The baby," Robin said in a heap, "It came early."

Beast Boy's eyes widened as he quickly grabbed his coat. He could hardly contain his excitement. He was going to be a father in only a couple of hours.

Raven was on the bed, screaming with pain. She quickly to turned to the doctor, making a feeble attempt to wipe the sweat from her face.

"Get the others out," she said, "Robin, Cyborg, Beast Boy...Starfire...tell them to get out. I want to be the first to see my baby."

The doctor nodded and turned to the four titans, "You heard her...get out!"

Sometimes I feel like I trusted you too well

Sometimes I just feel like strangling you myself

Sometimes I'm in disbelief, I didn't know

Somehow I need to be alone

Raven walked on the streets of Jump City, tightly clutching her baby to her chest, keeping him warm. She swung her cloak over his head to keep people from seeing what he looked like.

Nobody had seen the baby yet.

Less much would she want them to...

Don't stay

Forget our memories

Forget our possibilities

What you were changing me into

Just take myself back and

Don't stay

She swung open the door to the Titans Tower and walked up to large flight of stairs. Starfire was the first to noticed Raven, who had happened to be walking down the stairs at the same time Raven was coming up.

"Oh, Raven," she said, "Is that your baby? May I see what it looks like?"

Raven shook her head, "No."

She continued going up the stairs.

Forget our memories

Forget our possibilities

Take all your faithlessness with you

Just take myself back and

Don't stay

Robin and Cyborg was the next. They both crowded Raven, trying to catch a glimpse of the baby. Raven tried to walk away, but it was tough holding a baby and trying to get through two strong men at once.

"Come on, Rae, just let us see her," Robin said.

"It's a boy," she said firmly.

"I'm letting you through until you let us see it," Cyborg joked.

Raven's eyes glowed with anger as she clutched the baby even harder, "No!" she screamed, at the same time, releasing a strong wave of power, knocking Robin and Cyborg out of the way.

She walked off to her room.

I don't need you anymore, don't want to be ignored

I don't need one more day, of you wasting me away

Beast Boy saw Raven coming down the hallway and quickly ran over to her. She turned a little, trying to keep to herself.

"You gonna let me see him?" Beast Boy asked her.

She ignored him.

"He's my kid too," he said.

"And that is why I hate it," Raven said, "I will not allow anyone to look at him. I can't even look at him myself."

"What does he look like?"

"Like a normal baby."

"So?"

"But he only looks like one of us," she said, "People would stare at it and only know its one of us as the parent."

"Which one of us?"

"I'm not telling," she opened the door to her room.

"This is all about that Terra thing, isn't it?"

Raven angrily turned to Beast Boy, her eyes glowing a piercing white.

I don't need you anymore, I don't want to be ignored

I don't need one more day, of you wasting me away

With no apologies

"Don't stay!" she screamed, "Don't stay here any longer!"

Beast Boy was taken aback, "What?"

"You heard me," she said, "I don't want you to stay. Leave me alone! Let me and my baby live a life without you."

"I'm not leaving," he said, putting his one hand on his hip.

"No?"

He nodded, "No."

She gathered her cloak and closed her door and walked towards the lounge, "Then it's me that will go."

Don't stay

Forget our memories

Forget our possibilities

What you were changing me into

Just take myself back and

Don't stay

Forget our memories

Forget our possibilities

Take all your faithlessness with you

Just take myself back and

Don't stay

Don't stay

Raven stared down at her baby one last time with tears in her eyes. She couldn't take him with her, it would remind her of Beast Boy too much. She tore off a piece of her cloak and started off towards Starfire's room.

She knocked on the door and waited for an answer. The door opened and Starfire walked down, "Raven?"

"I need a favor."

She smiled, "Anything, what's wrong?"

Raven sighed, taking a small step into the room, "I'm leaving and I need you to care for something for me."

"What?"

Using the piece of her cloak she covered her baby's head with it. She handed it to Starfire, who took it with wide eyes. She stared down at the baby, his face covered.

"Raven...I—" she looked up. Too late, Raven was gone. She looked down at the baby once more and lifted the piece of cloak off from his face and gasped. The baby was a complete replica of Beast Boy.

Don't stay
