"We'll find a way to bring her back, we will..."
Beast Boy could still hear Robin's words echoing in his head. He was standing in front of Terra's now grey, stone body. He visited often, always bringing flowers to lay at her feet, today he had brought a single rose. He knelt down and carefully placed the rose in front of her. Beast Boy stepped closer and looked at Terra's frozen face. A tear stumbled down his cheek as he remembered her smile, her laughter. He put his hands on her hips and tilted his face to her's. The kiss was light, not lasting very long. Her lips were cold and hard; lifeless, it made a shiver go down his back.
"I wish you were still..." He struggled to find a word, "... here... to feel that." He whispered. Terra wasn't dead, no, just frozen as stone. There was a way to fix that, wasn't there? "Of course there is a way, Robin said so... and I trust him..." Beast Boy said to himself. He started to walk back to the tower, but he turned around and called, "I love you, Terra!" He looked toward the tower again, but decided to take a walk to think about things.
Raven and Starfire were sitting silently in the living room. It had started raining, and Starfire was watching it fall intently. Raven was reading a large, black leathery book. Raven looked up from the rain, sighed, and turned her attention to Starfire.
"Why are you so quiet today?" She asked dully.
"I... do not know. I just have a strange feeling. About something." Starfire replied, still looking at the windows. "Tell me, Raven, where are the boys?"
"I have no idea... I just know that Beast Boy left for awhile... but I haven't seen Robin or Cyborg all day..."
"Oh, I see..." The fell silent again, but Raven closed her book and set it next to her on the couch. They both sighed at the same time, gazing at the dark, cloudy sky outside. They looked at each other and smiled slightly, but Raven immediatly regretted it. When Starfire saw her smile, she grinned widely. "You have smiled!" She exclaimed. "You look so pretty when you smile, you should do it more often!" Raven blushed and looked away at Starfire's remark. A door opened and Robin and Cyborg entered the room. Cyborg, of course, headed toward the fridge, but Robin walked over to the girls.
"Robin!" Starfire said with a pleased smile. He glanced at her and sunk into the spot next to her. He looked ahead of him, toward the windows, his eyes had an unfocused look to them.
"We've found a way to being back Terra." He finally spoke, his voice held no emotion. Both of the girls faced him, mouths open.
"What?" Raven breathed.
"Cyborg and I have been making a project out of this ever since she was turned to stone. And we've finally found the solution..." Robin stated firmly.
"This... this is... wonderful news!" Starfire erupted happily, jumping up off the couch. "When can we bring her back?"
"Soon. Even today if we wanted." Robin said slowly, unsure about this whole business.
"The let's go! I wish to have our friend back!"
"So would I, but shouldn't we wait for BB to come back?" Cyborg pointed out loudly from the kitchen, he was stuffing his face with a hamburger.
"Yeah, I think we should wait for him... after all, this is mainly for him." Robin agreed.
"Wait, we could always... suprise him..." Starfire said mischviously. Robin smiled at her.
"An even better idea." He replied. "Let's head out."
Beast Boy let the rain hit his skin as it pelted down from the dark sky. He barely even noticed that is was raining. He sneezed and shivered a bit. He snapped out of his daze and realized how cold and wet he actually was. He looked around and saw a cafe across the street. He decided to go there and get something warm to drink.
When he stepped into the cafe, Beast Boy slipped into a chair in the back corner. This made him feel slightly more secure, so he let his muscles relax.
After a few minutes, a tan woman with dark brown hair and red highlights strode toward his table.
"Can I get you anything, hun?" She said in a rich voice.
"Umm..." Beast Boy started, the woman raised an eyebrow; he could tell she was looking at his green skin and hair. "I'll just have a small hot chocolate."
"A'ight." She nodded and walked back to the front, "Yo! Charlie! Whip me up a cup'a cocoa!" She yelled at a man whom was at the counter. The woman had a thick accent, but Beast Boy couldn't quite put his finger on it. She came back shortly, holding a small, white foam cup. She slid it across the table and put her hands on her hips. "Three bucks." She demanded roughly.
"What?" Beast Boy looked at him whipped cream smothered hot chocolate. The woman rolled her eyes and stuck out her right hand.
"Three bucks! Pay up, boy."
"Oh..." Beast Boy dug into his pocket and found a five dollar bill sticking to the side. He pushed it into her extended hand. "Keep the change."
"Yo, thanks, kid." She winked at him and went back to the counter. Beast Boy sipped the drink, he had to admit, it was delicious, but he just couldn't keep it down. Argh, I haven't been able to eat or drink all day... He thought as he stood up, taking the drink with him. He left the cafe and threw away the cocoa in a nearby trash can. The rain was dying out, but it was getting darker. What time is it? I had better go back.. before they start to worry...
Beast Boy the tower quietly. He stopped for a moment, something was wrong. Where is everybody? There aren't any lights on... He cautiously walked into the living room, scrambling in the dark to find the light switch. When he finally was able to flip the lights on, he almost had a heart attack.
"What the hell are you guys doing, huuuuh! Sitting in the dark thing? Flippin' freaked me out!" Beast Boy yelled, startled. They all looked at him, their expressions were hard to comprehend, but finally Starfire giggled.
Then he noticed they were all sitting around something. A foriegn, blonde haired head was seated in the middle of the couch. The head turned. Beast Boy's heart stopped and all of the color drained from his face.
"T-T-Terra!" He let out. "H-how?"
"Me and Cyborg found a way to" Robin started, but Beast Boy just flew across the room and landed in front of Terra. He put his hands on her face and looked deeply into her eyes. She looked back, but her expression was somewhat blank, and she had a confused smile on her face.
"Umm-" Terra began to make a noise, but Beast Boy dipped his head and cut her off as he mashed his lips against hers.
Beast Boy's head was snapped all the way to the right, a huge red hand print displayed across his left cheek. Terra still had her hand out from slapping him. Everyone else in the room was just sweatdropping.
"Uh... BB..." Cyborg tried to say, but Beast Boy inturupted him.
"What? Why Terra?" She looked at him hard.
"Am I supposed to know you?" She asked coldly. Beast Boy just stared at her, shock spread all over his face.
"Is this supposed to be some kind of sick joke! Because it's not funny!" Beast Boy yelled hysterically.
"It's not joke, Beast Boy." Robin said, moving toward him. He grabbed Beast Boy's arm and led him into a hall.
"What's going on?" Beast Boy asked sternly. Robin took a deep breath.
"When we brought back Terra, something went wrong, causing a case of amnesia." He started slowly. "She can regain her memory over time on her own, but we need to help her as much as possible too. It will be a long proccess, but we must be patient. We can't force her onto anything."
Beast Boy stood there, letting what was just said sink in.
"So, you mean... she doesn't even know who I am?" He choked, his eyes starting to tear up. He quickly wiped the water from his eyes.
"She remembers our names, just not the kind of relationship she had with us. And she has lost the memory of us totally for now. Sorry Beast Boy."
