Prologue: Fall to Pieces

She could have stood there forever. The sun lavished her face with warm rays that trickled across her tear-stained cheeks. Her hair seemed to glow with a wine red, unearthly light. The beauty of the fiery sunset did not calm the tumult inside her. Though the light splashed like engulfing flames across the ever moving sea, she could not find comfort in it's glory.

She cried for what seemed like hours, agony washing over her. The young woman looked up at the sky, only to see clouds creeping up behind her, threatening to overtake the fiery wonder before her. And she found she did not care. Nothing mattered any more except for what she had to say to him. As if on cue, the door opened slowly behind her, and the dark visage of the man she so deeply loved cautiously crept up behind her.

I looked away,

Then I looked back at you.

You try to say,

The things that you can't undo.

If I had my way,

I'd never get over you.

Today is the day,

I pray that we make it through...

Make it through the fall,

Make it through it all.

He stood there for a long time, wondering if she would ever move to look at him with her emerald eyes. Soon enough, wet drops of rain begin to fall, muting out the tears that he knew still poured down her face. He stepped forward without any hesitation and took her in his arms, holding her tightly to his chest. She turned around in his arms, hiding her face in his chest with painful fervor.

And I don't want to fall to pieces,

I just want to sit and stare at you.

I don't want to talk about it,

And I don't want a conversation.

I just want to cry in front of you.

I don't want to talk about it,

'Cause I'm in love with you ...

They stood in complete silence as the ever-falling rain danced about them in intricate patterns. Years seemed to have past before she finally looked up. Her wine red hair was now a deeper scarlet, matted on her face. She almost smiled when she saw he was not wearing his mask. But then again, he probably had been off the habit for years. But she wouldn't know that, now would she?

She burst out into tears again, the scars of her life becoming too unbearable to hold any longer. She had told him everything, and now he was the only safe haven from the storm inside her heart. He reached out and took her face in his bare hand. He smiled a warm smile, his ocean blue eyes twinkling with comfort.

You're the only one,

I'd be with 'til the end.

When I come undone,

You bring me back again...

Back under the stars,

Back into your arms.

"Star, it's okay. I'm here. I'll always be here." He paused, smiling as the rain fell across his face. "I know that I've let you down in the past, and for that, I will always be ashamed. I can see now that what I did to you was horrible beyond reasoning. I can never ask you to forgive me for that." He breathed deeply, searching for words that would express the entirety his heart. "I realize now that without you, I'm nothing. You are the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. Without you, I am incomplete. I love you with all my heart, Koriand'r." He whispered against her hair, reveling in the softness. "All of my heart..."

And I don't want to fall to pieces,

I just want to sit and stare at you.

I don't want to talk about it,

And I don't want a conversation.

I just want to cry in front of you.

I don't want to talk about it,

'Cause I'm in love with you.

Wanna know who you are,

Wanna know where to start,

I wanna know what this means.

Wanna know how you feel,

Wanna know what is real,

I wanna know everything,

Everything.

She embraced him tightly, their arms encircling each other completely. He tears poured down and she almost laughed at the absurdity of them. "I love you too, Dick Grayson. I love you too. Always remember that. Always and forever." Her voice trailed away as it caught in her throat. "Like my scars, it will always be unchangeable..."

And I don't want to fall to pieces,

I just want to sit and stare at you.

I don't want to talk about it,

And I don't want a conversation.

I just want to cry in front of you.

I don't want to talk about it,

'Cause I'm in love with you.

I'm in love with you,

'Cause I'm in love with you,

I'm in love with you,

I'm in love with you.

He held her and he knew that he never wanted to let go of her. He knew that from that moment on, they would be together forever. That was why it was a complete surprise to him when he felt the cold, hard point of a knife on his back...

Note: HAHAHHAHA! I bet you weren't expecting that! If it interests you to know what the heck just happened, then tell me if you'd like me to write more....Uh, If anyone is completely lost, Koriand'r is Starfire's real name in the comics and all. Dick Grayson is also Robin's real name, though at the point in time that this story takes place, he is actually Nightwing. But oh well, I guess you would find that out if you want me to continue!
