Disclaimer: If I owned Teen Titans, Jinx wouldn't be a villain, but a Titan and she and Cyborg would be going out.

Chapter 1: The Confession
Beast Boy's POV
It's the third night in a row that I've been unable to sleep. I've tried everything I can think of to go to sleep: counting sheep, clearing the mind, taking sleeping pills, but nothing's worked. I toss and turn in my bed, trying to get comfortable. Finally, I can't take it anymore. I decide to go to the kitchen and get some soy milk. While I'm drinking my milk, I'm staring out the window, thinking.
I know why I can't get to sleep. Raven. I can't stop thinking about her. Ever since Malchior broke her heart she's been a little distant. I can't help but worry about her. Deep down inside me, I know I'm hopelessly in love with her. I have been for a long time. I mean, sure I DID love Terra, but she broke my heart. She betrayed us. I mean, sure, she did come back in the end, but she still broke my heart. Nothing's going to change that. It didn't take long after that to discover my love for Raven.
I finally feel my eyelids droop. Sleep must finally be coming for me now. Yawning, I put my cup in the sink and head down the hall towards my room. I stop dead in my tracks when I hear the sounds of crying behind Raven's closed door. Why is Raven crying? I ask myself. Duh! You won't know unless you ask her, dude! My mind responds back. Quietly I knock on her door. "Raven?"
The crying ceases. "Go away, Beast Boy."
I don't move. "Why are you crying?"
"That's a lie. It has to be something. Let me in."
"No, go away."
"Raven if you don't let me in, I'll come in my own way." I don't get a response. At least I warned her I think to myself. Quickly I turn into a fly and enter her room through a crack in her door. Then I turn back into myself.
Raven is lying in her bed, her face into her pillow. My heart burns as I hear her muffled sobs. I sit beside her on the bed, my hand on her back. I rub her back, trying to calm her down.
"You shouldn't be in here, Beast Boy."
I pretend that I didn't hear her. "Why are you crying, Rae?" I ask gently.
"There's nothing much you can do when you're suffering from a broken heart." she says.
I feel anger flow through my veins. Malchior. That stupid moron who came out of that book and hurt Raven. I hate him for what he did to Raven. I struggle to find the right words. "Raven," I say quietly. "Malchior is not worth crying over."
"He understood me. He never judged me. He never called me creepy." I gulp in guilt. "He was someone I could talk to. He was perfect."
"You have other friends you could talk to. We all care about you, Rae."
Raven scoffs. "Yeah right while Robin's flirting with Star, or looking for Slade, and Star flirting back with Robin, and Cyborg is always working on the T-car, or sneaking off with Jinx."
Cy's going out with Jinx? I ask myself. I'm not sure what to think about that. But I decide to shove that aside for now. "And me?" I ask in curiosity.
"You're always off telling jokes. You can never be serious enough to hear what I have to say."
I glare at her. "What? Do you think I'm trying to be funny now!" I demand, my voice making her look out from underneath the pillow. "I do know when I'm supposed to be serious! And who do you think I've been telling my jokes to? You Raven! You just aren't willing to realize how much I've done to show you I love you!"
I cover my hand over my mouth. That was not supposed to come out like that. Raven sits up. "What did you just say?" she whispers.
I hang my head. Might as well just let it all out. I take her hand into mine. "I love you, Raven. I have for such a long time. You are all I can think about, all I can dream about. I wanted to kill Malchior for what he did to you. Raven, I've been waiting for you."
I lean in to kiss her. She turns away and pulls her hand out of my grasp. 'I'm so sorry, Beast Boy. I'm not falling for your trick. Now please, leave my room."
"But-." I say, feeling hurt. She continues to look away. I decide to respect her wishes.
I stand on my feet unsteadily. I head back to my room. I can feel my heart breaking. As I enter my room, I decide to do everything I can to show Raven I truly love and need her. I'm determined to get her to trust me.
