Funny Things Can Happen

Chapter 1

The Storm

It was a dark stormy night (yes it is) and Beast boy huddled on the couch watching 'People Who Die From Meat', a special for vegetarians like himself. Raven had started reading a book on the other side of the couch. The thunder let out a small rumble and lightning let out a flash.

"Raven." said Beast Boy turning off the TV.

"Yes." she said not looking away from her book.

"I'm hungry, are you?" he asked sitting there.

Raven thought for a moment and felt her stomach growl. "Slightly."

"Where are the others?" he wondered stretching as he got up.

"I don't know?" she said floating to the fridge.

Before they could open the fridge a loud roar of thunder boomed. The lights flickered and went out. Beast Boy let out a yell as Raven tried to find the drawer in which the flash lights where. Before she made it however, a hand grabbed her wrist and yanked her, she yelled in shock.

"You almost put your hand in the knife drawer." said Beast boy before she could hit him.

"How do you know?" she asked glaring, not realizing that Beast Boy still had his hand on her wrist.

"Duh, I can see in the dark. I have nocturnal eyes." he said pulling out a flashlight from a drawer.

As he turned it on, his large eyes went back to normal. Beast Boy realized he still held her wrist and let go. Before either could say something, a noise came from one of the rooms. To be more specific, Raven's room.

"Who's in my room?" she asked angrily as she walked to her door.

She had grabbed onto Beast Boy's hand and held it tightly. As they opened Raven's door one of her emotions came out. The emotion got stuck in it's own pink cloak and after a few minutes got out and burst into laughter.

"Happy." said Raven calmly.

"Hi." said Beast Boy waving.

"HI!" she said happily, then she stood up and looked at Raven.

"What?" asked Raven.

"I'm sick of being ignored. All the other emotions get to at least be used once. Me, I never get to be. I have never been heard or listened to. . . much. I realized this when I was thinking, well, you where thinking. I never have been used, ok once or twice. I want more attention." she puffed a bit angry.

"That's why your here?" asked Raven staring.

They broke out in an argument that was very strange to Beast Boy. He watched as Raven fought with herself. Soon he realized that he had some how gotten in the conversation. He only noticed this after Happy hugged him and started begging him to say yes. He said it, although he had no clue to what.

"Yeah, then it's agreed. Beast Boy we'll take you out tomorrow to exercise me. I can't wait." said Happy running back into the mirror.

"What did I do?" he asked, tapping Raven on the shoulder.

Raven turned around slowly, red eyes blazing bright in the dark. Instinctively, he ducked and covered his face. Raven looked murderous, she knew what this meant. She sighed and walked over to the couch.

"Ohm, Raven what did I agree to again?" he asked walking over and hesitantly sitting on the couch.

"You agreed to taking me to have fun tomorrow." she said angrily.

"That's a bad thing? Wait I thought I was taking Happy." he said starring.

"Yes, your taking Happy to have fun tomorrow. The bad thing is that now all the other emotions will want out." she said turning to face the wall.

"But you said I was taking you to have fun. Oh I see, so you don't want revenge to take over, got it." he said going to get some food..

"It's not just that, I have other emotions you know. There very annoying about their time space." she said standing up as Beast boy came back.

She dropped the flashlight and it broke. She went to sit down back on the couch and sat on something firm. It moved and she fell backwards into a warm chest. The lights came back on and too her horror, she was laying on top of beast boy, who currently had an apple in his mouth. His face had a red tint to it, as she tried to hide hers, the door opened.

"Were ba. . ." said Cyborg before gaping at the sight.

"Oh my goodness." said Starfire with a giggle.

"Sorry to interrupt, but we really didn't know." said Robin suppressing a laugh.

"It's not what you think." said Raven giving them a death glare.

"Really, what is it then." said Cyborg stopping his laugh.

"I fell on him when the lights where off." she said as Beast boy nodded.

"Oh ok." said Cyborg, still not listening.

"Where serious." said Beast boy.


"So where does happy want to go?" asked Beast boy as Raven came out of Nevermore.

"I don't know, she's bouncing around like a mad woman, though." said Raven coming in, very disheveled, due too some of her emotions tying it in knots.

"So I see they took it nicely." he said in mock humor.

"Why are you in my room." she said, now noticing thing.

"Ohm, I didn't want to wait outside." he said thinking quickly.

"Why where you waiting to begin with." she said as her eyes turned black.

"Ohm, gotta go." he said running very fast out the door.

"What did he touch why I was in there?" she wondered to herself looking around.


"Well, why I wait for Raven. . ." he trailed off, flopping on her bed.

"I'm buying her a lamp, that's for sure." he started looking under her bed.

He pulled out a few books and looked at them. He opened one up and quickly closed it as a sharp sound came out. He did not know what it was, but in that second he had felt very tired. He opened the next one and read a paragraph. He turned the page as a small arm came out. He yelled and closed it in a hurry.

"I don't even want to know." he said, backing off the bed and bumping into a book case.

A book hit him on the head and fell open on the ground. It was Raven's journal and it had opened to her first day here. The page was short, but it read;


I sat in a park wondering today, it was quite and lonely. I thought of going home, my real home, earth was very different. The house I was staying in should be destroyed. Well on with the reason I'm starting this stupid thing, so here it goes.

As I sat there moping a fight seemed to be going on at the end of the block. People ran away screaming, I didn't know if I should help or leave. As I was about to go the opposite way with all the rest, I saw people my own age. They where not trapped, nore hurt, but instead where fighting a large creature.

I put my book down and ran closer. As I got there I could see all of them where wearing battle clothes. There was three of them, all boys, and very much getting the crap beat out of them. Especially the green one, why is he green anyway?

Before I knew it, I had actually stepped next to a guy who was half metal. The boys told me to go, that it was too dangerous. As if to show them I meant business, I muttered my chanting and shot the creature backwards. They starred at me for a while, all I could do was smile a bit.

That is what happened today, a bit strange for earth. Well after the fight the boys where heading out to pizza. I went to go pick up my books, but the green boy had already picked them up for me.

"Come on, let's go get some pizza. I'm Beast Boy by the way." he said extending his hand.

"Raven." I said looking at his hand for a moment.

I don't know why, but i shook it. He was still smiling, as we got at the pizza place. I realized I had forgot my money, I made an attempt to leave before the waitress came. But the half man and half robot had already pulled up my chair.

"Come on, Robin loves to pay for pizza, and it's fun to watch him grumble about it. Raven is it? I'm Cyborg." he said as I sat in between him and Beast boy.

"I'm Robin." said the masked boy, extending his hand.

I shook his hand and smiled at them. Near the end of the Pizza dinner, and a food fight with Beast Boy and Cyborg, I started walking away, and heading home. But the trio called after me. They asked me to join their team. They told me about everything, which remarkably only took a few minutes.

I joined, for a few reasons. One, I hated the place I was staying at. Two, They seemed nice. Three, I met someone who was different like me, well not exactly, but close. Then finally four, I actually enjoy their company. It will probably only last a few days, before a fight happens.




"I wonder." she said, picking up the journal on the floor.


Please Review, I will update soon... because Summer Vacation is coming up.
