They Shall Never Know
Chapter ?-Last chapter
Read the Author's note! Read it!
Author's Note: Okay guys, here's the deal. I have completely lost inspiration for this story, but I have written the last chapter, so I'm going to summarize what happens, then give you that. I'm really sorry I made you wait so long just for this, but I just can't keep this story going anymore. Maybe one day I'll come back and write up these chapters, but that day is long in coming. I'm a junior in high school, I'm simply too busy. Anyway, the summery:
In the real world, Starfire's been hurt, badly, so Robin is forced to retreat with her, leaving Rae's Daddy Dearest to wreak havoc on the city. Inside Raven's mind, BB and Cy find Raven's smart side, which is trapped in ignorance. They manage to free her and make it to Raven's cage just in time to see what Raven was planning, aka, stabbing herself in the heart. Happy and Knowledge push Cy and BB out through the forbidden door just in time so they won't get stuck.
Back in the real world, Robin has gone back out to try and stop Daddy Dearest again, and in the middle of an evil taunting session (which includes forcing Robin to admit just how much he cares for Starfire to himself.) a huge wound appears in Raven's chest. Daddy gives a scream of rage even as he/she/whatever falls. Robin runs up to see what happened and sees the four red eyes change to two, though they're closed so he can't see the color. He brings her back to the tower and arrives as Cy and BB come bursting out the door. (The mirror wouldn't let them back in.) Raven was in a coma, but she was alive and healing herself. Starfire wakes up and we have the big mushy, romantic scene between her and Robin, and they (finally) get together. This chapter starts when Raven wakes up.
Did you read the Author's note? This means you. You'll be really confused if you didn't.
Read it! I mean it! Hurry up!
Did you read it? Good. Here you go.
Humming, I walked into the room of medicine. Soon Raven would awaken and all would be well! I smiled. Cautiously I poked my head into Friend Raven's room. After the last time I have tried to be extra careful. When I looked in I gave a gasp of surprise.
"Friend Raven! You have awakened! Joyous!" I cried, wrapping my friend in a hug.
"Star?" She said groggily. "Where am I?"
"You are in the room of medicine! It's so good to have you back friend!" I held her tighter.
"Star, please let me go." She muttered, and I complied immediately.
"Forgive me friend, I am simply overjoyed at your return!"
Raven muttered that she wanted to go to the roof and made to leave, and as she did I heard her whisper, "I'm sorry."
My smile faded, "Why? Raven, we know it is not your fault." But she was already gone.
"Robin!" A voice cried, and I looked up from my game with Beastboy as Starfire threw herself onto me. I let out a breath in surprise, as she isn't exactly the lightest thing in the world. Not that I'm complaining mind you. "What is it Star?"
"Friend Raven has awakened!" She yelled happily. "She has gone to the roof, to be alone, I think, but it is most joyous news!"
I chuckled, "Yeah it is. Did you hear that Beastboy?" I turned, but he was no longer there. I smiled to myself. Ten bucks says the boy's heading to the roof. Hopefully this will all be sorted out by the time we go to bed.
Oh man, what I wouldn't give for a nice juicy steak, covered in A1 sauce and marinated in- Oh, well, I guess Raven's awake. I'd have to be deaf not to have heard Star's 'joyous news.' And if I'm not mistaken I just saw a flash of green heading for the roof. I smiled to myself. Good.
Oh, wait. I groaned. This means there'll be two couples in the tower. Dear god. How am I supposed to cope? Maybe I'll give Titans East a call, and see Bumblebee again. Good mood reinstated, I turned towards the kitchen. Now…about that steak.
"Raven?" I called tentatively as I stepped onto the roof. There she was, sitting on the edge of the roof, legs dangling over it.
"Beastboy." She responded calmly, not turning around.
"Look, Rae, we need to talk."
"I've…I've been doing some thinking. I know, try not to faint from shock." No response. I laughed nervously. "Actually, I've been doing a lot. I've been a real jerk to you Rae. And I'm sorry. Really sorry. I won't even try to make up excuses. This whole mess was my fault. But I guess the thing is, I've been trying to figure out why I was so, well, jerkish to you. And see…the thing is I like you. A lot. In fact, I think I might even…"
He said it. He just had to say that godforsaken word. I could tell he meant it too. I'd be a failure of an empath if I didn't know that. Closing my eyes I steeled myself for what I was about to do. Opening them again I said in my calmest most unemotional voice. "I'm sorry Beastboy, but I don't love you."
It hurt. God, it hurt so much. But I had to say it. I had to break his heart. I had to break mine. His face fell and he turned away, rubbing his neck in embarrassment. "Yeah, yeah, sorry. Really. I should've known-" He cut himself off. "I'll see you later, 'kay?" He said, all but fleeing from the roof.
I'm so sorry...it had to be done. I thought. It was only after the door had shut behind him that I allowed a tear to slip down my cheek. But just one. No more. Because I could never allow it to happen again. I did not feel. He had said it once, and now, I would make it true.
That night, my dreams were dark, and over and over..."She can't feel..."
And I can't.
Ha, and you thought there'd be a happy ending. Oh no.
Sorry, no review answers today. I don't have time. And I'm lazy. But hey, it's over! Well, sorta. Once again, I'm really sorry about this. Maybe I'll come back and finish it this summer, cause I have no time during the school year. Sorry again,
