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!
They placed the clock back in its spot and locked the door to the infamous room. They didn't want to go in there for a while and they made sure Silkie wouldn't get in again. They separated and went to get themselves back together. Starfire put her dolls away in her closet, and would forever more take them out when she was feeling blue. Robin went to the gym and started his usual work out, making sure he wasn't getting rusty. Cyborg did a full scan on himself and made sure he was okay; which he was for half a robot. Beast Boy moped in front of the mirror and looked at his skin that was green once more. Raven went straight to her room to meditate. They were all quite quiet for the rest of the day.
The next day they packed up all of their kid's clothes and donated it to various homes and shelters. They gave the tower a good cleaning, which it desperately needed. Then they had a little business to settle with the Titans East, who happened to call.
"Naptime's over kiddies," called Bumble Bee as her face appeared on the large screen.
"Ha ha," said Beast Boy. "We're back to normal."
"So you mean we can tell everyone now?" asked Speedy.
"I guess, but I doubt anyone will care," said Robin, who was no longer had the lisp.
"Oh they will," said Aqualad with a devious smile.
"I don't like the sound of that," said Cyborg.
Mas and Menos held up a tape and began to speak a mile a minute in Spanish.
"In other words," said Bumble Bee, "we have a tale of our little conversation the other day and we know a few honorary Titans who would just love to see it."
The Titans groaned. They just knew that something like this was going to happen. The other Titans of the world were always looking for an excuse to poke fun at them, since they were the real and original Teen Titans.
"Okay, what will it take for you to destroy that tape?" asked Robin.
"Sorry Robin, but we're not making a deal," said Aqualad. "We're just announcing our plans so you'd be prepared for all of the letters you're gonna get."
"You are not nice," said Starfire. "We would never do such a thing to you."
"However," said Robin, who now had a smile of his own. "I have had something prepared incase such an occasion came up." Now he had the Titans East's attention, as well as his fellow Titans.
"Oh really?" asked Speedy. "Like what?"
Robin went to the little control board that went to the television/screen in front of them. He began to type and soon a slideshow began of the Titans Christmas party. "I just happen to have some embarrassing photos of the five of you at the Christmas party." There was a picture of Speedy with the punchbowl on his head and another of Mas and Menos trying to get a kiss from Starfire. Aqualad was dancing awkwardly on the dance floor and Bumble Bee was covered in food after she tripped and fell onto the buffet. Now the Titans had some leverage. "Now you destroy that tape, and any copies you might have made, or I e-mail this slide show to not only the other Titans but every villain as well."
The Titans East had not expected this and they cursed Robin. "Fine," said a defeated Bumble Bee. She grabbed the tape and snapped it in two. "Ya happy now?"
"Yes, thank you," said Robin and he took the slideshow off of the screen. "Talk to you later." And with that the Titans East grumpily signed off.
"That was good thinking," said Cyborg.
"I expected them to do something like that," said Robin.
"Nice to know your brain wasn't affected at all," said Cyborg laughed. All of the Titans felt quite relieved that that was over with. "Well I'm gonna go work on the T-car. My poor baby has been without me for almost a week." And with that he ran off to the garage.
"Robin, would you like to accompany me to the mall of shopping?" asked Starfire. "I wish to buy some more of the glasses for the sun."
"Sure Star," said Robin with a smile and the two headed for the door.
Now Raven and Beast Boy were alone in the common room. They looked at each other for a moment and the air became awkward. Finally Raven spoke up. "Well, I'm going to my room to read," she said and turned.
"Yeah, I think I'll go to my room, too," said Beast Boy and began to walk right beside her. The hallway looked different to them now. Memories of them running up and down it laughing and having fun sprung to their minds. They finally came to Ravens room and she stopped, stopping him as well.
"Look, Beast Boy, about this week," she said holding her arm nervously. "I just wanted to say that… I had fun with you."
"You did?" asked Beast Boy slightly surprised. "Well… I did too. It was nice playing with you. I didn't know you could be so much fun."
"Well, neither did I," said Raven in an almost sad voice. "That was the first time I've ever gotten to… play."
"Well you did it really well," he said with a smile.
"Thanks," she said uneasily. "Anyway, I just figured I should tell you that before we fall back into our old grooves and I can't stand you again."
"Oh, well… thanks," he said rubbing the back of his head.
Raven gave him a slight smile and opened her door. She walked in and Beast Boy turned and headed for his room. Suddenly she popped back out and said, "Oh, and Beast Boy?" He stopped and turned. Suddenly a black claw popped up behind him, grabbed his pants, and pulled them so high they almost went over his head. "That's for tickling me." She went back into her room and closed her door. She smiled to herself and let out a little giggle before going to sit on her bed and read.
Beast Boy had tears in his eyes and waddled to his own room. "Okay, note to self, when Raven say's she's gonna take revenge, she means it!" He groaned and started to pull his pants out of himself.
That night at dinner they felt a little more normal. They had been themselves again for twenty-four hours and were finally used to their teenage bodies. It wasn't long before they were talking about what it was like to be kids again.
"Man, I never knew how good I had it when I was a kid," said Cyborg. "I'm so glad I got to experience it again. Not to mention the fact that I got to be human again. I definitely had a good time."
"I did not know that Earth children had such a wonderful life," said Starfire. "I wish I had spent my childhood here. All of the dolls and the dresses and the hair ribbons. Not to mention all of the whimsical cartoon shows with the animals that talk. Oh, how I still wish they existed."
"It was nice to have a slightly normal childhood for five days," said Robin. "I mean, I grew up in the circus, so I didn't really have any normal experiences. It was nice to play on a playground with other kids. I'm happy I got the chance."
"Well I grew up in Africa," said Beast Boy. "So this was a big change for me, too. I used to play in the jungle, I never saw a jungle gym. And I'm with you, Cy, on the whole being normal again. I forgot that that's how I used to look. Oh well, it doesn't matter what color my skin is, I'm still as good looking as ever."
"Aren't you the modest one," said Raven sarcastically. The others waited for her to talk about what it was like to be a kid again, but she ignored them.
"Raven, are you not going to tell us how you felt about being a child once again?" asked Starfire.
"It was… interesting," she said simply.
"Oh come on," said Cyborg. "You looked like you were havin fun to me."
"Yeah, I've never heard you laugh so hard in my life," said Robin. "Wasn't it nice to do that again?"
"Again?" said Raven coldly. "I never got to do it in the first place. That was my first time actually doing childish things. And, yes, I did have a good time, but it's over and it's time we got on with our lives."
"Sheesh, you don't have to get all icy on us," said Cyborg.
"I'm just stating the obvious," she said. "Besides, I would rather not think about it anymore." She continued to eat and so did the others. It was silent for a little while before she spoke up again. "Although, I have to say, it was fun being a kid with friends like you," she said with a slight smile.
They all smiled and continued their dinner. And so everything slowly went back to they way things were. Their little adventure as children reminded them about what it was like to just be happy and carefree. Something they had forgotten from time to time. And they all felt a little closer to each other because of it, for now they all knew that within each of them was a kid ready to play and have fun.
