It's finally here...I have come to the magnificent conclusion that this is the last chapter. (Gasps) Savor it people, the sequel won't come out for a while…
shamenteen- I know, I wish I had a brother like that. Instead, I have to have an older sister that acts just like Crow. (How did you think I came up with his personality?)
animegoddess12345- Well, I'm going to post a sequel. Expect it sometime around the beginning of August at the latest. I'm most likely going to type the first two chapters then post the first.
NothingButWolves- Lucky you! You got to seethe preview of the sequel before anyone else! Well, it was really nice seeing you.
BlackCatOfDoom- Thank you. By the way, I need to talk to you.
GS Dragono- Yes, I am posting a sequel. Consider yourself lucky.
Disclaimer: The plot is mine. Crow and Dove are mine. Everything else isn't.
"Uggh…" Raven groaned.
"Hey, I think she's coming around." A familiar voice said. Cyborg, she thought numbly. Opening her eyes, she was rewarded with the sight of silvery white eyes staring back.
"Ravey!" Dove squealed happily.
"Get offa me…" Raven muttered, too tired to do anything else.
"No buts, Dove. Raven asked you to get off her. She's tired. Wouldn't it be nice for you to leave her alone so she can sleep?" Crow asked reasonably.
"Uh huh." Dove uttered meekly. Raven felt the weight on her stomach lessen as Dove got off. She looked down and saw her heavy comforter.
Voices began to blur together as she faded back to unconsciousness.
When Raven next came to, she was greeted with many different faces. "How long have I been out?" She said hoarsely. A glass of water was pushed in her hands and she eagerly began gulping it.
"You've faded in and out several times in the past week." Robin informed her.
"What!" Raven exclaimed, shooting up from her laying down position. She tried to get out, but Cyborg pushed her back down. "Let me go."
"You're not well yet." He said firmly.
"Yes I am, now let me go."
"If you really were better, you'd be able to blast me off, no problem." Raven sighed and gave in.
Raven spent the next week recovering before she was finally let out of the infirmary.
The first thing she did was head to the roof to meditate. When she opened the door to the roof, she found Crow and Dove sitting in lotus positions and waiting for her. "How did you know?" She asked.
"We knew the first thing you would want to do is meditate." Crow said.
"And we wanted to meditate with you." Dove added.
"Alright." Raven consented. She sat down next to them and they all levitated at the same time.
"Azerath Metrion Yandier."
"Azerath Metrion Xanhal."
"Azerath Metrion Zinthos."
"So you're going back to Azerath?" Raven asked. Dove nodded.
"Yep. And Crow's gonna take me!"
"Yeah. You'd probably get lost in the dimension crossroad." Crow muttered under his breath. Then he raised his voice to the normal speaking level. "After I take Dove back to Azerath, I plan on taking a short vacation."
"Where?" Raven's curiosity got the best of her.
"I can't tell you." Crow sing-songed. Raven hit him on the head. "Ow! Okay, now I won't tell you."
"Well, if you are leaving, get out." Raven stated.
Crow looked stricken. "But-but, we were gonna stay for dinner!" He whined.
Raven glared at him. Crow seemed to shrink.
"Okay, we'll leave right after dinner."
Dove giggled as she watched her older siblings fight.
"Aren't you going to stop them?" Robin asked her as he walked by.
"Nope! I'll let them fight a little longer…" Dove replied. After five minutes, she reached over and tugged on Crow's cloak. "Can we go now?"
Crow was about to say no, but he made the mistake of looking into her eyes. He softened and said, "Okay."
Crow held out one hand and made a symbol in the air, muttering under his breath. A black portal opened in the wall. "Come on, Dove." He turned around, waved goodbye, and stepped in.
"Bye, bye Ravey! I'll miss you!" Dove said. "Can we come back someti-EEEP!" A hand reached out of the portal and grabbed her cloak. "Bye!" Dove waved cheerfully as she was dragged into the portal. It rapidly began shrinking until it completely disappeared.
"Bye." Raven said flatly. Then she turned around.
As she walked back to her room, she contemplated how her next meeting with them would be.
"Friend Raven, have you seen friend Dove anywhere? She told me she wanted to do a girl talk and have braiding maneuvers." Starfire informed her.
"She just left with Crow, Star." Raven replied.
"Oh." Starfire said sadly. She just looked so sad it was hard not to feel sorry for her.
"If you like, I'll do it with you instead." Raven told her. Starfire instantly perked up.
"Thank you, friend Raven!" She cried ecstatically. "Let us embark to my room of sleeping!"
As Star dragged her through the many halls, Raven just had to wonder.
"What did I get myself into?" Unknown to her, Crow was asking himself the same thing.
"But, Crrrrrroooooowwww!" Dove whined. "Please stay a little longer, pleeeeeeaaaase?"
Crow sighed and consented. He sat down ina pink plastic chair with a swish of pink ruffles and said in monotone, "Why me?"
"Have some tea!"
"When do you think I'll see them next?" Raven asked Starfire.
"I do not know. Perhaps you will see them sooner if you invite them to the Tower…" Starfire hinted.
Raven sighed and fidgeted as Starfire braided her hair.
Little did she know, the next time she saw her siblings, it would be under very different circumstances…
Oh no! It's over! Oh, I would pay to see how some of you reacted to the ending! Don't worry; the sequel will come out very soon.
I would like to thank some readers who were there for me most of the way:
BlackCatOfDoom- (Also known as MysticDogSoul) I thank you for bearing with me through thick and thin and for all of your helpful comments.
animegoddess12345- I loved having conversations with you. It was nice to know that your rabbit (Was it Ghostie?) liked the story.
NothingButWolves- I should be known as NothingButCats. Ha! I crack myself up…
GS Dragono- Thanks for your support.
dark girl- Even though you're anonymous, I still feel like thanking you for some reason.
Angel Caida- I still love your name, and I hope you look at the sequel.
Now, for a special preview…just to make the wait worth while…
She was sixteen now, but she had held onto her sweet innocent nature. To what purpose, her brother Crow would never know.
Rustling down the corridors while dressed in silk and other atrocities was suicide if there were other people.
Lucky for her, there were none.
For some odd reason, she had been summoned to the throne room and told to look nice.
For whatever reason, Dove felt like shrieking and running away. She sighed and reached for the door.
An inch away from the doorknob, her hand twitched. Did she really want to hear the news?
Most likely not, but it wasn't like she had a choice, right?
Dove opened the door and faced the worst news in her life.
KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK.
Raven slid her door open a crack. Crow stood there, hair disheveled and looking like he ran 10 miles. "What?" she demanded sharply.
"Dove has a suitor." He said in a fierce yet dangerously calm voice. Raven's eye twitched.
"Dove, has, A, SUITOR!" He yelled in her face. "She has a suitor! Do you know what this means? It means that DOVE is being courted!" He looked about ready to pull his hair out. "SHE'S ONLY SIXTEEN! SHE SHOULDN'T BE COURT-" Crow was disrupted from his ranting by Raven's slap. He paused and blinked. "…thanks, I needed that."
"I know." Raven said.
Crow opened his mouth to start ranting again, but Raven cut him off.
"If you say another word about that subject, I will give Starfire permission to 'dress you up in the make of the up'."
Crow gulped and wisely fell silent.
"That's better. Now go away, you're ruining my meditation." Raven told him before slamming the door in his face.
"Sisters…" Crow grumbled as he turned and walked down the hall. "Why couldn't I have a brother? But, nooooo, I just have to be overwhelmed by younger sisters that for some reason can always make me do whatever they want…"
That's it peoples! (Sniffles) Good bye! I'll see you later! Oh, it's so sad. My first story is over!
