Disclaimer: If I owned them, would I be writing this? Probably. But I don't.
A/N: Well, I wanted to get this off my chest. I've got tons of ideas for short stories with little to not plots. I.e. drabbles. Thus, I'm gonna put them all here! I'll update irregularly and with a different story and plot each time!
And now, my first one. This one takes place, right after the controversial episode "Things Change." This one is primarily BB/Rae, with a little BB/Terra if you turn your head and squint. Heh.
Enjoy my first little drabble.
The green boy sat in a lonely section of the room, never even looking up. His body never moved and his eyes never strayed from the great window built in front of him. It provided the only light in the room, casting a rectangular shape of sunlight across the room's messy floor.
The great metropolis of Jump City lay sprawled beneath the boy through the window. It shined in the sunset, making it look almost orange. Waves splashed gently against the rocky island that held the Tower the boy now sat within.
The boy sighed, letting all of his breath out at once, his chest deflating immediately. His tall, pointy ears drooped slightly more. His emerald eyes, which were usually so bright and cheerful, were now murky and clouded by fog of doubt and past memories.
The green haired teenager was so focused on his sight, on the city, on the outside world, that he hardly noticed the door to his room open. If he did notice, he didn't make any indication towards it; he didn't move, or turn to acknowledge the person entering his private quarters.
The person who had opened the door, a female, looked towards him as she entered the room fully. The door hissed shut behind her. She glided softly towards the boy, her dark blue cape just barely touching the ground beneath her. Her purple eyes were locked on the green boy as she made her way over to him.
"You don't have to be so quiet," said the boy, still not turning around. "I know it's you, Raven."
"I didn't want to disturb you," said the purple-haired girl, stopping and hovering just over the ground. Though her body still moved gently, her emotionless face remained locked on the boy's. "How did you know it was me?"
"Only two people in the tower can fly," said the green boy, finally turning to look at her. "And out of those two, only one would want to sneak up on me."
The dark girl smirked ever so slightly, making the boy grin a little in return. "I wanted to make sure you were okay. You've been . . . distant lately. Very distant. I was beginning to worry."
"You, worry for me? That's a start," the boy said, turning back to the window.
"Beast Boy . . ."
"I know, I'm sorry," interrupted the boy, still not turning back. "I didn't mean it. I know you worry."
"I care for you. We all do," said the girl, her amethyst eyes yearning to look once again into his emerald ones.
"I know," answered the green teen, looking out over the horizon towards the city. His gaze held and he didn't look away, not even to face the girl one more time. His green hair was slightly mussed up, even more so. Yet, his face was void of emotions altogether; in this way, he resembled the girl whom he was talking with.
"She didn't remember me, Raven," the boy said. He felt his gaze wonder as his head dropped down towards his chest, away from the window. "Or maybe Slade was right . . . she just doesn't want to remember me . . ."
"You don't know that," answered the girl, hovering ever closer to him. She dropped to the ground and placed herself on the ground, across from the boy. He still didn't look up. "Maybe she does want to remember; maybe not. We don't know for sure, Beast Boy."
"But I wish I did," replied the boy, his voice cracking. He bit his lip and turned back to the window so that the girl could not see the tears threatening to fall down his face.
"I know you do," answered the girl. She, too, looked away. "We all feel sad when . . . someone we love . . . does not love us back . . ."
At this, the green boy looked up at the dark girl sitting mere feet away rom him. She had now taken his position, looking out the window, face sad. He half-expected her to start crying herself, but he knew better. She would not cry, and she would not allow anyone else to see her cry.
"I wish things did not have to change," said the green boy, still looking at the pale girl sitting next to him.
"But they do," answered the girl, still looking away. "We just have to deal with it and . . . move on."
"I'm not sure if I can," replied the boy. "I'm not sure if I can let her go."
The girl paused, not sure what to say. Finally, she turned to look the boy in the eyes and was glad to see he wanted the same. Finally, both green and purple looked into each other, as both had been yearning to do since the arrival of each other.
"Things change, Beast Boy," said the pale, purple-aired girl. "We just have to accept that."
"I know," answered the green-eyed boy, still looking into her eyes. "It's just . . . it's hard."
And with that, the boy finally felt the tears flow down his face, slowly. The girl, sensing this, moved closer to him and wiped the tears that fell from the boy's eyes. Placing her hand under his chin, she moved his head up to face him. Once again, purple and green looked into each other.
"I will always be here with you, Beast Boy," said the pale, dark girl, looking sadly into his eyes. Slowly, she placed her hand on his chest, right where his heart was. "I will always be right here. I promise you . . . that is one thing that will never change. No matter what."
The boy nodded. "Thank you, Raven . . ."
And he hugged her.
A/N: Well, there it is. My very first drabble. Hope you liked it! And remember...REVIEW!
