Disclaimer: Well, it's about time I wrap this up. This will be the last chapter of my story, "A Night Together." Wow, I never thought I'd actually make a three-parter out of this. I originally planned on this just being a one-shot. Oh, wellཀ
Thanks to all of you for the reviewsཀ I've never gotten so many review for just two chapters beforeཀ You guys rockཀ Now, on to the story:
A Night Together
After making out for what must have been an hour, the two finally decided to go outside to see the other Titans. It wasn't fair that they stayed locked in Raven's room while the rest worry. Raven smoothed out the wrinkles in her leotard as BeastBoy put his shirt back on. (A/N: And no, they didn't have sex. Minds outta the gutter, dudes! It just happened that BB lost his shirt in the...ahem...passion.)
"So, I take it you're feeling better," BeastBoy said, smiling at Raven. She just grinned back at him slyly.
"Gee, I wonder whatever gave you that idea!" she said sarcastically. "An hour of kissing you will do that."
"Glad to hear it!" BeastBoy said, laughing. "But can I ask you a question?"
"Of course," Raven said, leaning towards him.
"Why exactly are you...like this?" he asked. "Why are you able to do...that...and still not make every thing...explodey?"
"Well, actually, I don't really know," Raven said, looking at him with her beautiful amethyst eyes. "But I have some theories."
"Theories?" he asked, looking at her. "What do you mean?"
"Well, first of all, I think part of the reason is my father's influence," Raven said. "Ever since his...defeat, his influence has been weaker and weaker on me. Recently, I have been able to express emotion more lately."
"Sounds like a reason to me," BeastBoy said, grabbing her hand.
"Well, that's not all," she continued. "I also think...you...helped."
"What do you mean?" BeastBoy asked, tilting his head. "How did I help? I mean, beside the whole sleeping together thing last night."
"It's because you are there," Raven explained. "Because of your love for me, I think you helped stopped my other emotions from going rampant. I always needed a single emotion to rule the rest, and for a while I thought that emotion was, well...emotionless. But I've found that love is even stronger."
"So, you can express your emotions freely because you love me?" BeastBoy asked, smiling. Raven smiled and nodded. In excitement, BeastBoy jumped up and waved his arms in the air. "WOOHOO! Go BeastBoy! Go BeastBoy!" he yelled at the top of his lungs. Raven just smiled at him.
"Um...please don't do that," Raven said, blushing deeply. "The others might think we're doing something else."
"What do you mean?" BeastBoy asked, oblivious as ever. She just stared at him. Eventually, he got it. "Oh...right," he said, sitting down again. "Sorry."
"It's no big deal," she responded. "But we should probably leave and go see the others."
"Yeah, you're right," BeastBoy said, standing up again. "Well, shall we?" he asked, holding out his hand for her. She smiled and grabbed his hand. He pulled her up. The two exited th room, hand in hand with the other.
The two slowly began walking towards the common room, expecting to see their friends after the little episode they had had with Cyborg. But the android had apologized and they were cool again. Raven was mostly worried about what Robin and Star would think. She knew that Star would be delighted, but she worried about what Robin would think. Sometimes he was just a little over-protective. He was the stereotypical 'big brother' figure.
BB, however was too busy thinking about the last few hours to be worried about his friends. He wanted to pluck his own memories out of his head and frame them on a wall. They were the happiest he had ever experienced. Helping Raven, admitting his love for her, kissing her, sleeping with her... Yeah, they were rather good.
The two finally reached the common room and opened the door. To their surprise, the room was dark, and the curtains were drawn, letting no light into the room whatsoever. As BeastBoy squinted his eyes to adjust to the darkness, the lights suddenly flashed on and the curtains were pulled back. And both he and Raven gasped.
Standing in the common room were indeed their three friends. And they all wore big smiles on their faces, as they had decorated the room. The entire room was filled with green and purple streamers and confetti. A large banner was extended over the room, bearing the word "CONGRATULATIONS BB AND RAE!"
"Did you...do all this...for us?" Raven asked, looking at her friends with surprise.
"Of course!" Robin exclaimed. "You didn't think we'd let such an important event pass without exploiting it, didja?"
"We are very much happy of your decision to do the hugging and kissing!" Star cried, running up to hug both Raven and BeastBoy in one of her death hugs. As the two began to turn blue, Robin pulled her away, both still smiling widely.
"Was this your idea?" BB asked Robin. The Boy Wonder shook his head and pointed to Cyborg.
"I kinda felt real bad after what I did earlier today, so I did this to try and make it up to you!" Cyborg cried, also hugging BB and Rae.
"You didn't have to..."
"Oh yeas I did!" Cy exclaimed. "Let's face it: I was a complete and total jackass! So, it's the least I can do to make your first day together a happy one."
"Wow thanks, Cy," BB said, smiling at the robot happily.
"I...don't know what to say..." Raven said, blushing slightly.
"You don't have to say anything. Except: PARTY!" Cyborg cried, yelling out loud. As he shouted, the room fell dark again, and a large disco globe extended from the ceiling. The disco globe began to spin and glow as Cyborg began dancing wildly. Wild music blasted from two large stereos that had suddenly appeared.
"I thought I told you not to install that!" Robin cried angrily, although he made no move to stop it.
"Come on, dude! You're bringin' down the house!" Cyborg cried as he continued to disco wildly. Robin just smiled as he was grabbed by Star and the two began to dance to the techno music that was screaming out of Cyborg's stereos.
"Well, shall we?" BeastBoy asked, looking over at Raven. She just grinned and locked arms with her green boyfriend. The two ran onto the dance floor (aka kitchen).
The two began to dance slowly as Star and Robin spun around the room. Cyborg began to sing the song off-key and jumped from here to there, pulling off the wildest disco moves he knew. BeastBoy could only smile as he realized what was going on.
Cyborg was belting all over the place, hopping from the chair to the sofa. Star was dragging Robin all over the place, both laughing loudly. And Raven was slow-dancing with him, her head resting on his chest. BeastBoy couldn't help but smile. This truly was the best day of his life.
Hours later, the titans were once again asleep. Well, most of them were. Robin was sleeping in his bed, surrounded by pictures and mug shots of various villains. In the next room over, Starfire was likewise sleeping soundly. She was clutching a picture of Robin to her chest as if it were a teddy bear. Cyborg was sleeping as well, his systems worn out from the constant partying of the day. In the next room, lay BeastBoy.
The green teen was sleeping soundly, smiling form ear to ear. He kept the smile on his face even when sleeping. It had been a wonderful day. And then there was Raven, laying in her room. And not sleeping, just like before.
She rolled around in bed, not able to find rest. No matter how much she tried, sleep wouldn't come to her. She felt as if something was missing. Sighing, she stood up. Still wearing her purple night-gown, Raven walked out of her room. She knew what was missing.
Within seconds, Raven had traveled to BeastBoy's room. Knocking quietly, she let herself in. She saw BeastBoy wake up as she entered the room. He looked up at her, as he was in the bottom bunk.
"What's up?' he asked. "Another nightmare?"
"No, I'm fine," she replied. "Just can't sleep. Would you...mind some company?"
BeastBoy smiled his trademark fang smile. "Of course," he said, scooting over. Raven slowly sat down and laid down on the mattress. Instinctively, she moved over to cuddle next to BeastBoy. As the two lushed, BeastBoy wrapped his arm around Raven as she cuddled closer.
"Feeling affectionate lately?" he asked, his hand running through her hair. She grinned back at him.
"No," she said, kissing him passionately on the lips. "I just can't sleep without you."
A/N: And there you go, the climactic ending to "A Night Together"! Sorry if it was short, but I wanted to get straight to the point. Well, I hope you all liked it, as I had a great time writing this fanfiction.
