Home is where the heart is
AN: I saw The End today! I taped it and watched it like five times already…soo romantic. And may I quote:
"Realize with you gone Robin will be all mine!."
Star on Star! Star kicked ass! Um…yeah…I think, ne'ways another quote.
"Are you worried about your Robin, should I tell Trigon where he is?"
Notice she said 'your' Robin. Evil Star is a tatter tail! What a…monkeys butt!
BEST EPISODE EVER!
This is it! It's almost finished. My seven month old project is almost complete and I have you all to thank. This chapter, which may be my last on this story isn't in any way the end of my writing here. I have other works to finish and start. Thank you so much for the encouragement!
I'm so happy I think I have to use the potty now, but It will have to wait because I have a epilogue to write, which took me about three days (which is a long time for me) to finish so I hope it's good enough for you all.
Also I hope you guys all know that there probably won't be a sequel to this, but ya never know with me, maybe someday there might be, but you better believe I'll be having a lot of one shots coming up soon. Now I wanna re-dedicate this chapter to Darklight989 because I'm a stupid monkey that typed it wrong. Damn typos.
Anyways, I know you guys don't want me to bicker and talk about dumb stuff that doesn't matter, when you can read this and finish reading the story once and for all.
On with the show!
(Note: The epilogue isn't long, way shorter than all my authors notes but Its not supposed to be long so dont get mad ok, I wanted it that way.)
There were days when I thought things couldn't get better for the two of us. The other Titans were behind us one hundred percent when they had found out about our relationship or as Star had said 'Courtship'. I hadn't heard a word from Bruce and the league since that night in the alleyway. But it didn't matter to me anyway; I was happy right where I was, with my team, and the girl I loved.
Things practically stayed the same, Beast Boy and Cyborg fighting over video games and Tofu vs. Meat. Raven was as passive as ever, watching from the counter and sipping her herbal tea. Star and I, even though happy to just be with each other, never did anything really affectionate in front of the others. I was too neurotic for that. She didn't seem to mind as long as I gave her my full attention when the others were away. That's how we worked, that's how it all had come to be.
Red-X was taken to prison the night we had 'mingled'. He was behind bars and serving time for what he had done to Kori and all the items he had stolen. I had asked her how she felt about it, and although it had brought up horrible memories for her, she still wanted him there, unable to hurt anyone again.
Starfire, although the news and reporters had made her out to be a criminal, publicly apologized to the people of Jump City, winning them over with one of her brilliant smiles. She went to Jump City Memorial to see the others and practically begged them for their forgiveness. They gave it to her, receiving death-vice like hugs and even a few kisses on the cheek. (making Mas y Menos very happy.) Things seemed to be coming back in order.
Then when we got home, my cell phone rang.
"Hello?" I had answered, shutting my tired eyes and taking a deep breath to relieve the stress in my chest. I heard a bubbly voice speak my name.
"Hiya Dick!" I wondered what she had wanted for a moment. If this was somehow Bruce's big plan to get me back to Gotham I had to let her know it wasn't going to happen.
"Babs, can whatever you have to say wait till the morning?" I asked hopefully, running my fingers through my hair. She sighed at this.
"No actually it can't, Dick, why did you leave again?" I was having this conversation with a totally different person. I gritted my teeth and took a big loud breath.
"I'm needed here, besides, this is my home." I could hear the sadness in her voice at what I had said.
"You're needed here too Dick, I mean…I thought…that we…" whoa, I didn't even need her to finish what she was saying. I thanked whatever god was up there for not having any of the titans in ear distance of the conversation. I stared blankly at the wall and shook my head.
"Babs, there is no we, Star and I are a 'we' now, whatever you and I used to be just isn't there anymore, I'm sorry." The second it had finished coming out of my mouth I heard a blank dial tone. So she was now pissed at me…great.
I heard someone enter the room as I stared stupidly at the phone in my hand. I shook my head, not believing that she had actually hung up on me.
'What a bit…'
"Robin?" I turned around softly at the beautiful woman standing in the doorway. She smiled and put her hands behind her back, rocking side to side.
"Hi Star…" I grinned looking at her. She seemed so innocent, almost too innocent. I raised an eyebrow.
"What's up?" her cheeks got slightly red, she was embarrassed about something? She took a step forward and made her way over to my bed, where she sat down lazily. I sat down next to her, lying back so that I was lying down and she was sitting up in front of me. I put my gloved hand on her back and she followed my example, lying down next to me. She moved in closer, resting her head on my chest and her arm across my stomach.
"What is it Kori?" I asked wrapping my arms around her tighter. I could feel her smile and draw small circles around my abdomen.
"It is nothing, I am just simply glad that we are here…" to anyone else it would have sounded weird, but I knew exactly what she was talking about. I kissed her forehead softly and breathed in a new batch of fresh air.
"I'm glad that we're here too." She laughed as I played with her hair. I looked down at her briefly.
"What's so funny?" I asked, she sat up and looked down at me with a grin on her face.
"So Batgirl hung up on you did she?" my eyes widened.
"You…You…" she smiled and patted my chest gleefully.
"It does not take a Psion scientist to see that she had, as friend Cyborg had called it 'a thing' for you." So the truth was out. At least she wasn't mad. I felt her playfully punch my shoulder. (Which still hurt like a bit…)
"You best have not done the leading on Robin." She chastised standing up and putting her hands on her hips. I sat up quickly and scratched the back of my neck.
"I did not 'lead her on' Starfire, I promise!" she smiled, seemingly happy with my answer. I put out my arms, my way of asking her to 'come here'. She did as I asked and straddled my lap.
"How do you feel about being home?" she asked toying with my messy hair. Truthfully there were no words to express how happy I was. Here, in my room, with my Star (possessive I know but that's how it was), with my team and my friends. Happy was an understatement. I gave her a tender kiss and cupped her cheek in my hand, resting my forehead on hers.
"I've never better, and you know what they say…Home is where the heart is."
I gave her one more kiss and moved to turn out the light.
'Home really is where the heart is'
Wow, It's really done…I've finished it…I think I'm going to cry…:tears up: wow, I've never felt this good about accomplishing something. I hope my story wasn't too confusing; I tried my best with it. I hope you all enjoyed it immensely. Well, thank you all so much for everything, I feel so awesome! To all those that have been by me through it all I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. That was probably the best thing in the world, all the encouragement and help, Thank you all.

I don't like to have my characters out of character but I hate it when people make Star out to be some ditzy character with absolutely no brains.
