Starfire giggled as she creep down the hall. As she floated in the dark Tower, she gave the appearance of tip-toeing. Her grin grew as she neared the common room.

Starfire was most excited about this 'Christmas' that Robin had informed her off. She had journeyed to the city with him in search of presents and was astounded. The bright lights! The music! It was so cheerful, so glorious!

And this Santa! What a kind old soul, to leave gifts for every child. Robin didn't know that Starfire had laid awake this night, in wait for the most jolly of men. She wished to thank him personally for the joy he was spreading all over the world.

Starfire peered around the corner in earnest. What she saw there was most surprising. In a rush, she flew back to her room, where she spent the rest of her night in deep thought.

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night

In the morning, after the presents were opened, the stockings dug through and breakfast sizzling on the stove, Stafire approached Raven.

"Friend Raven!" She cried, hugging her friend. Raven's face turned blue and she managed to gasp weakly.

"Um…Star?" Robin ventured. "You may want to let go." Starfire immediately released an oxygen deprived Raven.

"Dear Friend! Please accept my most profound apologies! But I feel the greatest of excitement for your new love!"


"WHAT? Starfire!" Raven seethed. "What are you talking about?"

She didn't see me creep
down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked
up in my bedroom fast asleep

"But Friend Raven, I must protest! Last night, I was doing the sneaking out to see Santa." For some reason this didn't surprise any of the Titans. "And I saw you doing the kissing with Santa Claus!"

Raven spit out her tea she was taking. A cybernetic eye and a mask followed an invisible line to a blushing Beast Boy. Two identical grins crossed Robin and Cyborg's faces.

I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;

"Are you sure Starfire? Raven was kissing 'Santa'?" Cyborg asked, a touch of pleading in his voice.

Starfire nodded frantically. "Indeed Friend Cybrog! Raven was very much do the kissing under the mistletoe!"

"Cyborg's grin grew. "Mistletoe you say?"

"Correct!" Cyborg's head slowly turned to where Beast Boy stood cowering in the corner.

"Beast Boy you sly dog!" Cyborg cried, slapping Beast Boy on the back. Robin grinned and turned to face Raven. A slice of night slapped over his mouth.

"Not. One. Word." Raven hissed venomously. He nodded frantically and watched as Raven's powers chucked Cyborg out the window.

what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen

And on the refrigerator, a sticky note hung.

Beast Boy.

Don't Forget.

This is your year to put the gifts under the tree. You know Starfire will be looking, so be sure to wear the suit. It's in the closet.
