AN: The Teen Titans are not owned by me, myself, or even I!
The tower was calm while each Titan was doing their own thing. Cyborg sat on the couch flipping through the channels. Starfire was in the kitchen, the one place she was never trusted to be in. Robin was watching Starfire and making sure she wasn't cooking up anything lethal. Raven sat in the corner reading one of her books. There was just one person missing, which must have been why it was so quiet.
"Has anyone seen Beast Boy?" asked Robin.
"I have not," said Starfire.
"I think I saw him goin up to the roof," said Cyborg.
"Perhaps one of us should see if he is okay," said Starfire.
"He has been acting a little depressed lately," said Robin thinking. "Anyone want to volunteer?"
"Well Raven's the expert on being quiet and depressed," said Cyborg. "Maybe she should talk to him."
"Quiet, yes," said Raven not looking up from her book. "Depressed, no."
"Maybe you should go talk to him," said Robin.
"Why me?" asked Raven looking up.
"Because anything you say will mean more to him than if any of us said anything," said Robin. "Since you basically ignore him, any words of comfort would probably snap him out of this funk he's been in."
Raven closed her book and sighed. "Fine," she said rather annoyed and made her way to the roof.
Beast Boy sat on the edge of the roof watching the sunset. It still had a few minutes to go, but it was beautiful nonetheless. He sighed and kicked his dangling feet back and forth. He hated feeling this way, but he couldn't help it. He heard someone walking up to him with his sensitive ears. He turned and saw that it was Raven standing behind him.
"Oh, hey," he said and turned back towards the setting sun.
"Hi," she said walking up to him.
"What are you doing up here?" he asked in a sigh.
"I could ask you the same thing," she said sitting next down next to him. It was considerably warm out, but there was a cool breeze. "Are you… okay?"
"I guess," he said shrugging.
It grew quiet between them as the sun sank ever further into the sea. The sky was alight with florescent colors of orange and pink and purple. The city was slowly starting to shimmer with thousands of lights.
"You've seemed a little down lately," said Raven.
"I know," he sighed.
"Anything you want to talk about?" she asked looking at him.
He looked at her with surprise. "You want me to talk?"
"I want to know that you're okay," said Raven plainly.
"I'm okay," he said looking back to the setting sun. "It's just… I can't seem to get over Terra." Raven felt her heart race and her blood boil for a moment. It had been a month since they had returned from saving the world and discovered that Terra was no longer stone. "I just can't believe that she doesn't want to remember us. She doesn't even want to know us anymore. She doesn't want to know me." He sighed a long heavy sigh. "I missed her so much. I wanted her back more than anything. And now that she is she doesn't even care about me."
"It's not that she doesn't care, Beast Boy," said Raven trying not to get angry about his Terra obsession. She personally still held a large grudge against the traitor and was glad that she didn't want anything to do with them. "She's just moved on. This is what she wants, and if you really are her friend you'll let her be happy."
"It's not that I don't want her to be happy," said Beast Boy. "I just want her to be happy with me. She was the first girl who liked me for me. She didn't care that I looked different and she actually liked my sense of humor. I just don't think I'll ever find a girl like that again."
"She was… one in a million," said Raven still trying to keep her disgust hidden. "But just because she doesn't like you, like you like her, anymore doesn't mean you have to feel bad about yourself. You're one in a million, too. And I'm sure there's a girl out there who will see that as well. But you'll never find her if you don't get over Terra. You have to do what she did and move on."
Beast Boy turned to Raven. "You really think there's another girl out there who'd like me?"
Raven turned to him and gave him a small smile. "Of course I do." The setting sun's dying light landed upon Ravens face making her glow. The violet in her eyes seemed to be electrified and her pale skin turned to gold. Beast Boy had never noticed how beautiful she could be. The sunset seemed to only intensify her loveliness. He suddenly felt his stomach twist for a moment and he looked away from her, back to the sun that was just about beneath the horizon.
Raven had seen the way Beast Boy was looking at her and she felt a little uncomfortable. She put up her hood and then stood up. "So do you think that you could come back in now? Or are you going to keep sitting here feeling sorry for yourself."
"I'll be in in a second," said Beast Boy not looking at her. Raven nodded and headed inside. Once she was gone Beast Boy stood up and thought about all she had said. "Maybe it is time that I moved on. But one thing's for sure, I'll never find another girl like Terra. Then again, that might not be completely terrible. But who could ever like me for me?" The sky had faded to a brilliant shade of purple that was fading into midnight blue. He didn't know why, but it reminded him of Raven. He felt his stomach flip and an odd smile cross his face.
