Disclaimer: I do not own the Teen Titans.
The setting sun silhouetted the oddly shaped Titan Tower, the home of Jump City's defenders appearing black to any of the city's inhabitants. If someone had excellent eyesight, they perhaps would have been able to discern a little dot seperate from the side of the tower and arc gracefully into the bay.
The dot was Beast Boy, and he was furious. His assisted flight had been caused by another of the Titans, the violet-haired empath, Raven. This was why Beast Boy was furious. He had done nothing to deserve it.
Beast Boy entered the Tower's kitchen to get himself a bite to eat, and found Raven sitting at the table. She was sipping her herbal tea, and reading a book. Nothing uncommon with that, she always did it around this time. The green changeling went to the fridge, and pulled out a bit of leftover tofu and set it on the table, opposite to Raven's seat. He had learned to respect her personal space after many painful lessons.
After filling a glass with water from the tap, he sat down and ate. He had almost finished, when Raven sat her empty teacup down in the saucer. He looked over at the teapot still on the burner and back to the empath. He decided to be nice and opened his mouth, "Hey Rae, would you-"
"I was just asking-"
The changeling growled and started to yell. "Dammit, let me finish the question!"
Raven lowered her book to the table, and glared at the shapeshifter. "No, I do not want to hear your new joke, no, I do not want to play a video game with you, and no, I do not want to watch whatever new movie you've discovered. Now, shut up and leave me alone or you'll regret it."
All he'd wanted to ask was if she wanted more tea. Her flat refusal to even let him ask had gotten on his nerves, and he couldn't stop himself from yelling back a single curse, and that had resulted in a swift engulfment in the sorceress's magic and tossed physically from the Tower.
The changeling stormed back into the tower, dripping wet, and went to look for the dark teen. He rushed into the kitchen, only to find it empty. He stopped and thought for a minute, she would be either in her room, in the common room, or on the roof. He went to the roof first, and found it empty. He went and beat on her door for several moments, yelling her name, then headed for the common room.
The empath was on one end of the semi-circular couch, her legs folded into a indian sitting position, her book on her lap.
Beast Boy marched into the room, and saw the girl he was looking for. He didn't even try to talk quietly, simply stopped and started yelling. "Dammit Raven, why did you toss me out the window!"
The violet haired female sighed and marked her place in the book. Apparently he wasn't done bugging her yet. "I told you to stop bugging me, or you'd regret it. You didn't stop."
"I wasn't bugging you! I was trying to ask if you wanted more tea, but you wouldn't let me finish the damn question!"
"Oh." Raven was momentarily surprised by this, but she didn't let it show. Why would he offer me more tea? He has never offered to do anything for me like that. It must have been a setup for some kind of prank. "It was probably a prank anyway, so you still deserved it."
Beast Boy had been angry, now he was offended. He opened his mouth to protest then closed it, jaw clenched in anger. He abruptly turned around and left, going to his room.
Raven had picked up on this flash of offense, and frowned slightly. He wasn't serious about that, was he? It wasn't a prank setup? The flash of offense has seemed to indicate he had been telling the truth. She sighed. Maybe I should go apologize just in case he was being honest.
She got up and went to find the changeling, he powers making the job easier for her than it had been for him. She stood in front of his door, and knocked. "What do you want?"
"I wanted to say I'm sorry for not letting you finish the question you wanted to ask and for assuming it was something pointless." There, an apology. Now she could go back to her book. She was walking away when his voice came again and she stopped to listen.
"You're not sorry. The idiot deserved it for daring to speak to you." His voice was deeply bitter.
Raven frowned at that, and walked back to the door. "I do not think of you as an idiot, Beast Boy. You are irritating most of the time, but I-"
"Forget it, Raven. I know what you think of me. Beast Boy, the stupid little green thing. Beast Boy, the idiot. Beast Boy, the one person you hate most in the whole world." Now Raven was started to get a little worried. This wasn't anything at all like Beast Boy. He had never been this... well, bitter was the only word she could think of.
"No, Beast Boy, I don't think-"
"Go away, Raven. Leave me alone. You'll never have to hear me or talk to me ever again." And that was all he'd say, despite how much she tried to apologize or get him to talk.
She went back to her room half an hour later, and tried to meditate, but could not. She was worried. Sure, she thought he was irritating most of the time, but none of the things he accused her of thinking she actually thought.
