AN: I do not own the Teen Titans, for if I did I would never let it go off the air for no apparent reason!
"Stop!" shouted Robin as he and the rest of the Teen Titans chased after a common thief. He had just robbed a hotdog vender, which he could see now really wasn't worth it, and was now running down the back alleys of the city. The Titans didn't want to hurt him; he didn't have any special powers so he really wasn't a threat.
He finally ran into a dead end and turned around. There he saw the five Titans closing in on him. He knew he had been caught and he reluctantly dropped his bag of money and raised his arms into the air.
"Please, don't hurt me," said the poor thief.
"We're not going to hurt you, not if you cooperate," said Robin as he and the others came to a stop. The thief did cooperate and he was soon cuffed and brought to the police station. The Titans made their way back to the tower.
"A hotdog vender! Who robs a hotdog vender?" asked Beast Boy as the Titans filed into the common room.
"Someone who's really down on his luck," said Raven putting her hood down.
"But why did he take the money and not the hot-dogs?" asked Starfire. "Surely he would get more of the money if he sold the hot-dogs. They are a delicacy, are they not?"
"Not exactly, Star," said Cyborg.
"But, I do not understand," said Starfire. "Many of your earthly delicacies include foods of that kind. There is the eggs of the fish and the liver of the ducks, so why not the hot-dog that consist of many of those animal parts and more?"
The other Titans felt sick, especially Beast Boy. They really wished Starfire would stop watching the Food channel. None of them felt hungry any more, even though they had entered the tower starving.
"Hey Cyborg, you wanna play some video games?" asked Beast Boy trying to change the subject.
"Sure BB," said Cyborg and the two made their way over to the couch.
"Can I play the winner?" asked Robin sitting down next to them.
"Ya mean me?" asked Cyborg with a smile.
"Hey, you haven't won yet," said Beast Boy. "And besides, you're not gonna win this time."
"We'll see about that," said Cyborg and so the game commenced.
Both of the girls decided to go to their rooms. Raven was going to meditate and Starfire was going to check on Silkie. Normally, Starfire watched the boys play video games, but she had to take care of Silkie first. And Raven… well… she couldn't understand video games. They didn't have any point.
Cyborg smashed into Beast Boy's car and pinned him up against the wall, thus passing him. He laughed and this only made Beast Boy growl. Robin knew he was going to be playing Cyborg, but he tried to route for Beast Boy. They had two more laps to go and the two were neck and neck.
"Ya know I'm gonna win, Beast Boy," said Cyborg laughing.
"Ha! That's what you think," said Beast Boy biting his lip and moving his fingers faster than ever.
"Beast Boy, look out for the truck!" yelled Robin.
"I see it, I see it!" yelled Beast Boy.
"Robin, don't help him!" said Cyborg turning to Robin.
"Cyborg, the trees!" said Robin.
Cyborg quickly looked back and gave a scream. He swerved out of the way of the trees and back onto the road. He and Beast Boy were now smashing into each others cars harder than ever. There was only one lap left.
Suddenly Starfire burst into the room frantically. "Has anyone seen Silkie?" she asked very upset.
"Sorry Star, I haven't seen him today," said Robin turning to her.
"Hush!" yelled Cyborg and Beast Boy as they closed in on the finish line.
"Oh, I can not find him anywhere," cried Starfire.
"Have you checked the whole tower?" asked Cyborg now that he was sure he was going to win.
"I have checked most of it," said Starfire. "Can you please help me?"
"Of course," said Robin standing up.
"Beast Boy, Cyborg, will you help?" asked Starfire.
"Gimme a second…and… YES!" yelled Cyborg in victory. Beast Boy threw his controller down in defeat and whined.
"Are you guys going to help or not?" asked Robin.
"Sure," said Cyborg standing up. "You comin, BB?"
"I guess," said a low Beast Boy standing up.
And thus the search began. They even got Raven to help, after bursting into her room and doing a thorough search of it. Now they were combing the tower for any sign of Silkie. Starfire was on the edge of tears the whole time.
"We've checked everyone room in the tower," said Robin. "Where could he be?"
"We haven't checked that room," said Raven pointing ahead. It was the room that kept all of the trinkets they collected from the various villains. Control Freaks remote, a few Red X toys, a Slade mask. It was a room that none of them went in often, too many bad memories.
The door swooshed open and they entered. It was cooler in this room than the rest of the tower, to make sure everything was kept in a good condition. Beast Boy felt a chill run up his spine and he shivered.
"Dude, this place is creepy," said Beast Boy.
"I do not think Silkie would come into a room like this," said Starfire.
"Well, he's not in any of the other ro-" said Robin, but he stopped mid word. "Do you hear that?"
They all stood still and listened. There was a slight snoring sound coming from the corner of the room. They all crept on their tip toes to where it was coming from. Sure enough, there was Silkie, sleeping in the corner.
"Silkie!" squealed Starfire who then scooped him up. She hugged him tightly and giggled. "We have found you!" She was squeezing him so tightly that he suddenly let out a burp. Out of it came a familiar looking clock. Robin picked the slime covered thing up.
"I hope he didn't eat anything else," said Robin.
"Hey, isn't that Warp's time machine clock thingy?" asked Beast Boy.
"You're a quick one, Beast Boy," said Raven in her usual tone.
He ignored her and grabbed the clock, leaving all the slime in Robins hand. He looked at it all over with a quizzical look on his face. "I wonder what ever happened to him," he said.
"He's a baby now," said Cyborg. "Hopefully whoever took him in will raise him right this time."
"I wonder how it works," said Beast Boy.
"It doesn't matter," said Robin. "Now put it down before something happens."
"Relax, it's not even on," said Beast Boy banging the top of it on the wall. Suddenly it began ticking again. Beast Boy's heart nearly stopped and he almost dropped it. "Uh oh." He quickly gave it back to Robin. "Uh, here you go."
"Nice job," said Raven sarcastically.
"Don't worry, I'll turn it off," said Cyborg taking it from Robin. He opened it up and started to tinker around inside of it. But no matter what he did it wouldn't stop ticking.
"Why will it not turn off?" asked Starfire.
"I don't know," said Cyborg growing concerned.
"Then just leave it alone before it starts moving time around," said Raven.
Cyborg went through all the chips and wires and couldn't see how it was still working. Then he saw a thick blue wire. "This has to be it," he said and snipped it. The clock stopped ticking.
"Phew," said all of the Titans.
Tick… tick… tick..tick..tick.tick.tick, the clock began clicking faster than ever. The hands spun all around the face of the clock began to glow.
"Cyborg, what did you do?" asked Robin.
"I don't know!" said Cyborg. He wasn't sure what to do, so he threw it to Beast Boy.
"Dude!" yelled Beast Boy and threw it to Starfire.
"Eep!" screamed Starfire and pass it on to Raven.
"Get rid of it!" said Raven tossing it to Robin. He missed it and it fell to the floor, right in the middle of the five of them. Suddenly the face of the clock grew so bright that it burst through and the whole room was absorbed in a white light. The light then slowly faded. Tick… tick… tick, the clock began to click normally.
