I don't own Teen Titans

"Raven!" he screamed after the half-demon girl, "Where are you going?" Raven was standing out in the rain, all of the belongings she could carry over her back with her.

"I have to go." She said, happy that the rain was hiding her tears, "If I don't, you will all be in danger." She sighed, "Don't forget me, okay? If I get through this, I'll find you again." She ran up and hugged him, tears evident even though it was raining, and slipped something into his hand, "Don't tell the others that I left. And don't forget me." She gave him a kiss on the cheek, wiped a tear from his eye, and closed herself in the raven, leaving the green changeling to himself. Beast Boy slumped down on the steps and looked at what she placed in his hand. There was a raven carved from black stone. "Don't worry, Raven," he said under his breath, "I couldn't if I tried." He slipped the black raven into his pocket, and went back to his bedroom to go back to sleep, so that he could pretend he had no idea what happened in the morning.

"Friend Changeling?" said a red haired girl from outside his door, "It is time for the breaking of fast? Would you like some tofu eggs and bacon?" Beast Boy, now Changeling, slumped further into his bed, "No thanks, Star. I'm not hungry." Starfire clapped her hands from behind the door, "I have also prepared you the pudding of Sadness, since this is the day that your beloved Raven had left, would you like some of that?" Changeling growled. After 10 years on earth Starfire had become more beautiful, and even more aggressive in a fight, but still had a lot to learn, like when to leave well enough alone, and that NO ONE likes her cooking. "SHE WASN'T MY BELOVED! AND I ALREADY SAID I'M NOT HUNG" he had to stop there as to not let "the beast" out. Since Raven left, he had a harder time keeping it in check, so that even Starfire knew when to quit. "As you wish, friend Changeling." She sulked away, for she had hoped that for the first time in 10 years he would come out of his room on this day. This day, the day that Raven left. The day that Raven promised him that she would come back if she could. And for 10 years, she still hadn't come. Changeling had started to give up hope, but nonetheless, he kept that stone raven there, safe, just in case she did come back, so he had proof that he still believed in her. "Rae," he sighed, fingering the stone bird, "I miss you so much. I wish you would come back already. I don't think I can hold on any longer. I wish you could just come back." He fell asleep, dreaming of the one that he knew he loved, even as a stupid little 15 year old boy.


Changeling woke to a strange noise, "Who's there?" he screamed, posing in an attack stance, ready to pounce at any moment, "Show yourself!" He looked around but saw nothing. He kept looking, then he felt something move in his hand. When he looked, he saw that the stone raven was shaking. All of a sudden, it started to grow. It grew until it was twice his size, when something, or someone, in a white cloak walked out. This person collapsed into Changeling's arms, and he slowly took of the hood.
