A bitter night drifted over the hectic city of Gotham. The zephyr's frosty atmosphere could possibly chill you to the bone. Beast Boy gazed up at the beautiful stars in the twilight as he resumed wandering to the park. The stars luminosity was better than ever.

He finally reached his destination. Venturing deeply into the heart of the park and secretly taking pleasure in the tranquility the place offered, he spotted Raven, sitting on a mahogany bench and secluded from other activity. He embraced his red jacket for warmth, approached the female, and sat down. "Lovely night, isn't it?" he questioned, trying to ignite a conversation between them. Raven grunted in reply.

"Why were you sitting alone? Don't you have any friends?"

The dark female glanced at him; misery shone vibrantly through her cold, but incredibly graceful eyes. Beast Boy's gaze dropped to the damp grass beneath his feet. The response was very obvious to him. "If it makes you feel any better, I'll be your friend," he whispered, subconsciously moving closer and closer to her. Raven jostled him away.

Beast Boy positioned his arm around her.

"Makes you feel like an outcast, like the world ate you up and spat you out, doesn't it?"

Raven nodded in agreement. "Partially," she sighed and turned away from Beast Boy's gaze. Beast Boy gaped at the female for a few minutes.


Raven then turned toward Beast Boy. "I suppose you know what it's like, having Sakutia, that is," the murky teen said, tucking a lock of hair behind her ear.

"You know about Sakutia?"

Raven pitched another glare.


There was a long pause before Beast Boy decided to talk.

"My parents have created a cure for Sakutia, but lasts temporarily."

Raven gazed deeply into his eyes; he immediately grew uncomfortable.

"If they forget the cure, I'll die."

A light breeze brushed past the two. Raven, without the protection of any jacket, shivered. Beast Boy, wanting to keep his companion as content as possible, unzipped his jacket and placed it on Raven. She gave him a smirk. "Thanks," she said, zipping the jacket. Beast Boy returned a grin.

"You're welcome!"

The two stood up from the bench and departed, Beast Boy unintentionally clutching Raven's hand.
