Chapter Twenty

It was a day and a half later when the Titans were finally informed that Terra had arrived at the Titans East tower. Cyborg was ecstatic over the news. The Titans East were more so, having received such a powerful individual to their team.

The exchanges of messages and congratulations went well into the night as the two teams talked with each other concerning their new team member. It was midnight on the east coast when they said their farewells. After that, Robin felt it best for his team to turn in as well.

Most of them followed his suggestion. But at least two of the Titans were still awake.

After the halls had cleared and everyone else had cleaned up for bed, Beast Boy paid a visit to Raven's room.

"May I come in?" he asked when she answered the knocking at her door. Saying nothing, she let him inside. They next both sat on the bed.

"Been a while since we've been together, huh?" the changeling remarked.

"Yes, it certainly has." Raven replied. She seemed saddened by something.

"Look, Rae," he began. "I'm really sorry I told Terra about us. She just pressed for it."

"I'm not upset over that."

"You're not? Then what is it?"

"I feel guilty for how we treated Terra. We made her out to be this bitch, when in fact she was just lost and misguided. What she needed were true friends."

"Yeah, I noticed that too. But I've accepted that it's pointless to worry."

Raven gawked at him. "Whoa, now you even talk like me!"

"Yeah! Scary, huh?"

"Sure, whatever. But I see what you mean." She heaved a sigh. "I guess the fire between us needs rekindling, huh?"

"I wouldn't say the fire is between us. More like...in our hearts."

Raven blinked. "You are more poetic than I ever knew you could be!"

"Well, I've studied up on romance." He blushed.

"I'll give you an 'A' for effort."

"Really? What about the final grade?"

"That remains to be seen."

With that, they both moved in to kiss each other. They stared into each other's eyes afterwards.

Raven found her heart starting to speed up, as well as her palms feelings moist and her lips feeling dry. She licked then without any concealment, as a signal for Beast Boy to pick up on.

The changeling noticed the mystic's action very clearly. He was at odds of what to do next. 'What the hell.' he thought as he decided to wing it.

He grabbed her head and kissed her again, twining tongues with her. As they parted, he then placed his hands on her breasts. At first, Raven was shocked, but then she calmed down.

"So," she asked. "You wanna go all the way tonight?"

Beast Boy blinked. "You got the...protection? I meant to get some, but..."

Raven answered him by obtaining a condom with her powers. She smiled.

"Well, I'm glad one of us is responsible!" Beast Boy said.

Raven shrugged. "Like the saying goes, Beast Boy. The more things change, the more they stay the same!"

"Says you!" he said as he got up and stripped naked. "You're looking at a changed Beast Boy!"

Raven giggled. "Funny, I could've sworn I was now looking at a nude Beast Boy!"

He scoffed at her as he took the condom from her and put it on.

"You know," he said. "You and I might make history as the only couple able to crack jokes while having sex."

"Do you want to test that claim?" Raven asked as she also stood up and stripped naked.

"Sure. We'll be like the...Abbot and Costello of the bedroom!"

She laughed. "That's a distinction I can go without!"

"Let's try for it anyway!"

"Okay, then!"

With that, the two Titans got in bed together and, in the midst of laughter, made love to each other.

The End


Thanks to all that have reviewed.

I admit I was worried about the lengthy dialouge in the first third of the story. The story started out as just a BB/Rae story, but after I saw "Things Change", it evolved into what you have just read. Since this was also mostly a romance story, there was little action I could come up with, so I just focused on Raven and Beast Boy's relationship. I hope the action later in the story made up for it.

More stories are to come. Plus, if you haven't read my other stories, please do so, and please review them!
