Chapter 1

"All right y'all, you sure you can handle the Tower & the city on your own?" Cyborg asked, adressing Raven & Beastboy. Raven shot him an evil look before nodding harshly. Cyborg rolled & looked over at bb. "You sure you're gonna be all right with her for a month?" he asked. Beastboy smiled.

"I'm not sure," he answered, recieving a even more evil glare from Raven. "Eep! Don't hurt me!" he said, shielding his face with his arms. She rolled her eyes & looked over at Robin & Starfire.

"So....where exactly are you going?" she asked in monotone.

"Well, friend Raven, I am leaving Earth to visit Tamaran. I do miss my kanorfka so," she said wistfully. "Also, I am need of learning of his experiences with ruling. I hope the people of my home have not caused him many difficulties."

"I'm gonnna go visit Bruce," Robin answered.. "He's the closest thing I've got to a dad." Raven nodded before turning an inquiring gaze to Cy.

"I'm gonna go visit my grandma," he said, pulling a picture of a wrinkled old woman out of thin air. Beastboy looked puzzled.

"Dude! Where'd the picture come?"

"I dunno. Same place that Robin's little stick thingy comes from I guess," Cyborg shrugged. Robin steamed a little.

"How does it get there?" bb asked.

"I dunno. Just think of somethin', I guess."

"Cool!" Beastboy said, furrowing his eyebrows in concentration. Suddenly, a soda popped out of thin air.

"DUDE!" he said, drinking the soda. Raven glared.

"Can we get back to the plot now?" she asked.

"Oh yeah!" Cyborg said, the picture disappearing. "Now don't do anythin' innapropriate while we're gone," he said, casting a sly grin at the two sitting on the couch. Raven's eyes went wide.

"Eew," was all she said. Beastboy looked slightly offended. "Have safe trips," she said. They started to walk towards the elevator to get their bags, but Raven threw their luggage at them with her powers. "Stay safe! Have fun! Don't forget to write! We'll miss you! Goodbye!" she called in one breath as she pushed them out the door. When they were gone, she took a long, deep breath & sighed heavily. She sat back down on the couch & rested her head against the cushions. After a moment, she looked over at Beastboy, who was staring at her with wide eyes.

"What?" she asked.

"So much for a sorrowful goodbye," he said, laughing slightly.

"Okay, fine. I'll admit it: I couldn't wait for them to leave," she said, looking slightly guilty. (Just slightly! )

"Why?" he asked, a playful, joking grin on his green face. "So we could be alone?" He raised his eyebrows playfully.

"Once again: eew. No, that's not why. I couldn't stand them sitting here implying perverted things for one instant longer. But now I have you to deal with," she added.

"Yeah! Now you have... hey!" he said, looking slightly offended. Raven smiled a little, & he perked back up again. "So... whaddaya wanna do?" he asked. Her smile faded.

"Meditate," she said, teleporting through the floor & leaving a very confused Beastboy in her wake. He sighed. He didn't know how he was going to make it through the next month. You see, the Titans had been ordered, by Bruce Wayne of course, to take a vacation to see their families. They couldn't all ditch the city & the Tower, however, so they decided to leave two of their own in charge. And since Raven & Beastboy didn't have a family to speak of anyway, they were ellected, Still, Beastboy couldn't see why they couldn't leave him with someone a little more fun. He sighed, realizing that it was going to be a long four weeks.

Raven dropped onto her bed, sighing. She knew that she needed to meditate, but she just wasn't up to it right now. She wasn't sure why the others hadn't let her stay alone, she worked much better that way, but she wouldn't complain. 'After all,' she thougtht to herself, 'it's better than being stuck here alone with StarfireAlthough she liked the cheery Tamaranian, Raven didn't think she'd survive four months with the princess of pink. Starfire was just too cheery. Besides, out of all the Titans she probably got along with Beastboy best, though she'd never admit it. He could always make her smile, at least inside. Still, every time his kindness or comedy bordered on being disruptive to her powers, she had to push him away. She didn't want to hurt him, but she had to in order to keep him safe from herself. Powers or no powers, however, a little piece of her died every time she hurt him. But for now, all she could do was sit here & meditate. 'It's going to be a long four weeks,' she thought.
