Chapter 37

Sunday night, a fresh yet not cold night, just perfect for a football game at Wilson High whose students were just excited for yet another game against their biggest rivals: Jump City High. It had been a while, 5 years, since Jump City High had last beaten the Wilson High and the latter weren't about to let that change, Mr. Katarou was making sure of that by threatening the whole football team in the dressing rooms and they all knew the threats were more like promises, he was dead serious there.

Everything was feeling way lighter at the stands however for each side of the field was filled up by students of each participant school, even some teachers were looking for seats and of course the principals wouldn't miss this game even if they wanted to, it would give a bad impression of the school and the last thing they needed was to give a bad impression to their biggest rivals. It was well known the rivalry of these two schools was strong and it was also well known the headmasters just didn't get along so, in every game, they stayed as far away from each other as they could unless it was absolutely necessary for them to exchange a few words, hostile and cold as their voice tones sounded. As for the students, they did have some rivalry following the school's spirit and being competitive as any teenager but that didn't mean they couldn't be friends with each other, like Robin's gang and Donna for example.

"Hey Richie!" Donna called making the after mentioned teen and all his companions turn around and greet her as she reached them wearing her cheerleading uniform. The uniform in question consisted of a red mini-skirt with yellow ends, a red sleeveless top that showed just a little of her stomach, the straps were yellow just like the letters that adorned her chest 'JCH'.

"Hi Donna, what's up?" Robin asked smiling, he felt a tap on his shoulder and saw Kid Flash standing at his side. The redhead smiled at him.

"We're going to save some places at the stands, see you in a bit, ok?" Robin nodded watching Wally and his gang walking away. The blond fraternal twins waving lightly at Donna who waved back grinning happily. Robin, Beast Boy, Aqualad, Bumblebee and Speedy looked back at their raven-haired friend.

"Guess who's back." The cheerleader said tauntingly with her hands behind her back, the pack before her smiled at their realization, of course they knew who she was talking about, she was friends with him too and there was no other student at Jump City High they'd like to see besides Donna and him.

"A certain boy who happened to miss my birthday?" Robin asked amused raising an eyebrow, Donna nodded excitedly.

"He wants to talk to you to say 'Happy belated birthday'."

"He better have a present for me and it better be a good one." The cheerleader laughed softly taking hold of her friend's hand and guiding the group towards the side of the stands.

: Meanwhile below the Wilson High supporters' stands:

"I should have specified an hour instead of saying 'before the game starts'." Kitten sighed exasperated pacing from side to side like a caged lion. She hated to admit it but she needed help from someone to conquer Robin, yet she had no idea who could be capable of doing that until the Lynx.

She remembered that night perfectly, it would never be forgotten how she had been dumped in the dance floor by none other than Richard 'Robin' Grayson himself and when she had finally found him he was back with that awful girl Raven. They had become very close friends rather quickly or so it seemed and she was sure they would start dating in no time unless she did something to split them up before they grew to really like each other, she had quite great intuition and knew there could be something there. She needed to act fast. Still she couldn't do this alone, she had to separate both gangs but it was too much for her to handle on her own. Of course it would have been far easier if she was aided by someone from either gang but that was not going to happen, she couldn't just walk up to them and say 'Hey, can you help me separate Richard form Rachel?' Not even Geo-Force would be interested in helping her hence here decision to follow that old saying: 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend'.

Ok so yeah, maybe it was a little twisted her reasoning because Rachel 'Raven' Roth was her enemy and Raven's enemy would only be her enemy from her and her friends' point of view only seeing as how the 'enemy' in question didn't want to be seen as such. Besides, enemy was a strong word for this case, maybe 'rival' would be better.

"Kitten." Kitten jumped and turned around in a rush, relieved to see the boy there was the person she had been waiting for.

"Jericho don't ever sneak up on me like that again!" The blond female hit him on the arm lightly before taking a deep breath to calm her nerves, Jericho looked at her strangely for being scared so easily but shrugged mildly sorry.

"Sorry." He apologized "But what did you want me for?"

"I need your help, and believe me, this is much harder for me than it seems." Kitten said with an annoyed sigh, Joe raised an eyebrow at this.

"I am not changing your grades using my dad's computer." This earned him another hit on the arm, which actually hurt a little but he didn't let it show.

"That's not it." The girl decided to continue before he could ask anymore "I need your help to separate Roth from Robin, for now they're just friends but I have a bad feeling about them."

"Oh yeah, I've noticed they got pretty close rather quickly." Jericho admitted now that his companion had mentioned it "But I think that if I'm to do something I will do it on my own and for my own benefit."

"You can't be serious." Kat retorted crossing her arms over her chest "You haven't been able of getting anything out from her other than a slap. The rest you had to take it by force, isn't that right?"

"I don't know what you're talking about." The boy feigned ignorance about it, he was pretty sure no-one had seen him stealing that kiss from Rachel at the Lynx last Friday. He had made sure to look around before doing what he did so rumors wouldn't start and grow, Raven had enough problems already just as he had and the last thing he wanted was more rumors flying around them.

"Don't play dumb." The female said with a smirk her blue eyes shinning smugly "You know perfectly fine what I'm talking about and be sure that if you say no the whole school will know it as well tonight."

"You're just trying to scare me." Joe said standing his ground and hoping he was right with his assumption "That 'I-know-you-know-what' trick is way overused already."

"I am not as stupid as everyone in school considers me to be." Kitten replied with a roll of her eyes "I wouldn't be doing this without something to defend myself."

"And what would that be?" The blond girl sighed at the boy's lack of faith and reached into her pocket fetching her pink cell phone and pushing a few buttons.

Jericho saw as Kitten did this and just got even more scared, she was so sure of herself and now he had to start thinking on what to do if she did happen to have proof. Kitten turned the phone around showing him the big screen, his eyes widened at the sight as he took the device form her hands. There a picture was showing, a picture in which he appeared: Eyes closed, head titled to the side and lips crashed against Rachel's whose face was captured by his hands, her eyes were wide open and her hands somewhat raised in surprise. It was there! The proof! She really had proof… or used to anyway.

"Nice picture, too bad I accidentally deleted it." Joe said handing the phone back to the owner who hadn't lost her smirk making the boy wonder about her attitude.

"And you still think I'm that stupid." She said amusedly putting her phone back in the pocket of her white jacket "The photo is safe and sound in my laptop, you didn't really think I would have the only copy in my cell phone knowing I could lose it as easily as I just did, right?"

The boy slapped himself mentally, he should have guessed she had a copy in her computer, he knew this girl was devious when she wanted to and even more so if it was over something as important to her as this. He now knew if he said no she would show the picture to the whole school and it would mean a lot of problems, for him mainly because he was sure the moment the Markov boy saw this there was no power on Earth that could save him from the pain he was in for. And he also couldn't forget about the redhead who always stood up by the blonde's side. Yes sure, X would help him out then but now that Raven was friends with Robin's gang there were other 5 boys that would surely go after him and there was no escape from them. That was going to hurt.

"Tell me…" Joe started really curious "How did you get this picture? I made sure to look around before doing anything and no-one from the school was around at that moment."

"Oh well you see, it was a mere accident." Kitten replied with a shrug "You see, after finishing the argument with this stupid girl who crashed into me I realized I had been dumped on the dance floor –no comments about it or else- and started looking for that boy. While looking around I saw a girl wearing this top that would totally look great on me and decided to take a picture of it so I took out my phone and pointed it to the girl but just as I took the picture the girl moved and you appeared."

"Oh…" Yeah that was all the boy could say to that.

"Yeah and I was like so shocked!" The blue-eyed girl exclaimed "I never thought you'd have the guts to do something like that in this life and yet you're full of surprises."

"Eh… yeah." Was all he could say at the moment, not knowing what else to say. Kitten nodded and sighed before speaking again.

"But you're rather lucky."

"What do you mean?" Joe asked raising an eyebrow very curious at the new statement.

"Well, after I took the picture I was still rather mad and just wanted to see someone getting hurt so I went right up to the Markov boy to show him this." Jericho's eyes widened in utter shock at her words, she looked unfazed and continued "But he acted like an ass when I talked to him so decided against it, it was five seconds after that this whole idea of teaming up came up."

"What?" The male yelled "You were going to get me killed that night?"

"Well you did deserve it." Kat shrugged a shoulder uninterested "But anyway, that's past, unless you decide I should share this picture with him tonight, eh?"

The green-eyed student didn't find how to reply to that other than a simple 'no' for this pretty rhetorical question, creating a somewhat awkward silence between both blondes. However, this kind of silence can't last forever, it always has to be broken.

"Why me?" Jericho asked suddenly, curious as for Kitten's decision to ask him for help. She rolled her eyes nonchalantly.

"You're the only other person I know who would want both of them to stop being friends just as much as I do. And also because I have this little picture to get you to cooperate with me." She said inspecting her nails "And you know you won't be able to do anything alone, we just need to find a weak spot in their relationship and use it against them, working together we can watch over them more easily but we still need to act as we would do every other day so they won't be suspicious about us planning on doing something to them."

"You've got any ideas yet?" The blond male asked, there was no use in looking a way out of this, she was right in everything she had just said.

"Not yet." Kitten admitted with a shake of her head "But now that you're helping me we can think on something together, but let it be some other day."

"Weren't you just anxious to separate them?" Jericho asked curiously to his companion, she nodded lightly.

"I am but it's Sunday night, my dad wants me to sit with him during the game, which is starting in around ten minutes, and then head right back home because he wants me in bed early with tomorrow having school and such." Kat explained exasperated rolling her eyes "It's awful to have your dad teaching at school you know? Always checking up on you and making sure you do your homework and sleep early and all that."

"Did you forget who you're talking to?" Joe asked amusedly "I'm almost in the same situation as you, except for the fact that my dad is not a teacher, just the headmaster, the one everyone at school fears. So yeah I know what you mean when you say all that."

"Of course you do, sorry." Kitten replied laughing a little "Will you sit with your bodyguard tonight or with your dad?"

"My bodyguard?" The boy questioned raising an eyebrow, the girl nodded.

"You know, Jason."

"He's not my bodyguard." Joe retorted feeling insulted "The fact that he's always with me it's only because he's my best friend, I don't need him to protect me from anything: I can stand by myself."

"I'm just joking, no need to be so defensive." Kat rose her hands pretending to be scared of him "So will you be sitting with him?"

"Not tonight…" Jericho started to laugh softly making Kitten curious about his sudden happiness "Or for the next 4 games for that matter."

"You kidding? Why not?" The blond girl was very surprised at hearing that from the principal's son to say the least "He's never missed a game, it's one of the few things at school he enjoys."

"I just said I'm not sitting with him, not that he would miss the game." He explained still not helping Kitten understand what he was referring to.

"Where is he sitting at then?" Jericho smirked playfully at her.

: Yep, with X:

"You know? Wearing a toga is not that bad." A certain raven-haired boy said moving around in his outfit "It's rather comfortable and somewhat refreshing."

"You really can't be enjoying doing this." Kole said with a frown, X turned to look at her with a smirk on his face.

"Not at all, it'll ruin my reputation and will make a fool out of myself in front of not only my school but our biggest rivals too." He said picking his world-like ball off the floor, the one he was supposed to dance around with "I was just saying wearing a toga wasn't that bad."

"Why are you smirking then?" The pink-haired cheerleader asked annoyed, he was supposed to be complaining and begging for her to call off the punishment or punish him some other way but he was just acting as smug as ever. She hated that.

"Well, since I am not enjoying this punishment I thought I could annoy you and have fun looking at you get pissed at my attitude, which is working." Red X pointed out seeing Kole's frown deepen, it just was like a compensation for making him look like a fool. Ok so maybe she hadn't been the one to bet and maybe he had agreed to do it if he lost the Voices Duel but that didn't mean he couldn't have a little fun himself.

"Was it not part of the bet to stay as far away from the cheerleaders as possible?" Starfire asked suddenly, remembering what her friend had told her the bet was about.

"Well dear, you and your whole pack are making sure that part is followed perfectly." X said motioning to the line of cheerleaders that kept themselves as close to the opposite wall he was standing in front of as possible "This is as far as I can be from you seeing as how we are standing in a small tunnel and the walls stop both, me and you, from moving any farther away from each other."

"Why don't you just go to the end of the line or something?" Kole proposed truly annoyed "You'd look good standing behind all of us."

"Nah, I think I better stay to the front so all of you can take a good look at my behind." Jason said cockily still with that big smirk plastered on his face. Kole stuck out her tongue at him and he mirrored her action, they looked so mature to the rest of the cheerleaders at that very moment. X decided to add some logic to it all and make Kole look even more childish by reasoning his place in the tunnel "But remember sweetheart that the mascot needs to come out to the field at the same time the cheerleaders do so I need to stay here and you will have to get used to it and learn to like it."

Kole just crossed her arms over her chest and let out an irritated sigh not finding a way of retorting to that: He was right and she had to accept it even if she didn't like it. She hated him, just plain hated him and the fact that he had just decided to mirror her movements to mock her some more was not helping the situation even a little. And that didn't make them look any more mature to the cheerleaders either.

"Eh Kole," Starfire started trying to break the very mature moment, she accomplished it for the pink-haired cheerleader turned to look at her and erased her frown towards the boy at least for the time being "Does anyone know he is going to be playing as our mascot tonight and for the four upcoming matches?"

"Ches knows, you all know, the headmaster knows and I bet your friend does too X, doesn't he?" The addressed boy nodded once answering the girl's question "And unless Atlas over there told anyone else about this no-one else knows."

"Why me?" Red X asked sounding insulted at the insinuation "It wouldn't help my reputation at all and, besides, the one who likes to pass the secret on around the school is your friend not mine."

"Well she… I mean… She doesn't…" X raised an eyebrow amusingly at the pinkette who could just not find any retort to that, yet again "Well yeah so what? Maybe it's better the whole school knows so they can have their cameras ready and make fun of you with those pictures for the rest of your life."

"I will be smiling the whole time then, and I hope you do too." Jason said pointing at Kole's face "That pretty face of yours looks better with a smile on it."

"Go to hell." Was the small cheerleader's smooth response, the playboy only chuckled at her before turning to the head cheerleader.

"You know Star? The squad really made the best choice picking you as their leader." Starfire cocked her head to the side not quite understanding why he suddenly said that, the boy continued "Even though your whole squad looks quite amazing in those uniforms you look especially gorgeous."

All the girls in the squad looked down at themselves wearing their cheerleading uniform: A blue miniskirt with white ends a blue sleeveless top that barely touched their skirt with a white band on the chest that had 'Wilson High' written in stylish font on it. The squad knew the kind of guy Jason Dash was but… still… they could feel a little jealousy –of the good kind of course- of their head cheerleader for receiving a compliment. And Starfire herself couldn't help but feel a little flattered.

"Thank you for the compliment." The redhead thanked with a little bow, if there was something her father had always taught her it was to always be polite and thank someone if they were nice to you and be nice to them as well.

"I mean everything that comes out of my mouth, every single word." The grey-eyed boy assured with a little bow as well and yet he never lost his smirk no matter how honest he sounded "Hey how about a drink after the game finishes?"

"I cannot accept your invitation." Kori answered seriously, she had two reasons for not accepting, one was the fact it was HIM who was asking her out and everyone knew he didn't have the best behavior during dates but she would never say that to him so she just made her second reason known "It is Sunday night, I need to be home early."

"Oh right." X nodded once as if he had forgotten about that "Maybe some other time then?"

"We shall see." Was all the questioned girl could answer, out of the corner of her eye she could see Kole was about to say something but the boy raised a finger stopping her from doing it so.

"The deal was not going near any of you, but we never agreed that I couldn't flirt with Starfire and ask her out so you have no word on this." The black-haired teen felt quite satisfied when he saw the pinkette scowling and folding her arms over her chest again because of his words. Yeah this was going well, at least he was enjoying himself before going out wearing a toga in front of so many people.


"Love you too doll." And it was then he understood just how intense a girl's glare could be, it was interesting.

: With Robin:

"Look there he is!" Donna exclaimed pointing at a boy standing next to the 'visitors' stands and also earning his attention "Hey look who I found, told ya I could bring them to you before the game started."

"You always enjoy winning, Donna." The boy said amused by the girl's proud face, she glared playfully at him.

"There is nothing wrong with it." She then turned to the pack she had brought with her "Well guys I need to get going but I will see you later ok? Maybe not after the game but soon."

"Sure Donna, thanks for all." Robin thanked waving as the girl left them behind to go join her cheerleading squad. The Jump City High student turned back to them smiling.

"It's very pleasant to see you all again."

"Dude, it's been so long since last time, I thought you had forgotten about us." Beast Boy said happy to see their old friend who laughed at his greeting's response.

"I apologize but school has kept me busy and so have my parents. It's hard to find time to spend with my friends." Was the explanation given for him not talking to them in a while.

"I'm sure of that, you even missed my birthday buddy." Robin said understanding but pretending to be hurt at the end.

"I am sorry for that too Richard." Came the apologize "I promise you to make it up to you any way you want ok?"

"Sure I'll make sure you do." Rich replied laughing a little "Maybe you could lose the next time our school plays basketball against yours."

"I'm the captain of my team and I say that is not going to happen." Even though Robin didn't lose his smile on the outside he had actually felt hurt for those words, even his old friend had made it to basketball captain while he just could stay back and try to be better than the actual captain of Wilson High basketball team which was not coming along the way he had hoped.

"Oh well, can't say I didn't try." He joked trying to keep the mood light.

"Hey don't worry Rob, I'm sure our school will still be a challenge for Jump High and we are almost assured to win." Speedy said suddenly trying to sound competitive to the Jump City High student who raised an eyebrow at the comment.

"I will not go easy on you because you are my friends, I will make sure my team wins."

"Same to you." Richard retorted "You better be ready because we're a tough team to beat."

"Yeah promise you won't hate us after winning." BB suddenly said quite sure of himself, a hand found it's way to his head pushing him a little downwards as the owner of the hand spoke.

"Hey there watch your mouth, we know just how good this kid is and we don't want to speak beforetime." Aqualad then turned to the new boy "Our team will do their best and so will you, let's see who wins in the end."

"Of course Garth and I trust we will give Karen quite a story to write for the Gazette, she always makes such a great work writing her articles."

"Thank you for the comment." Bumblebee thanked smiling which was replied with another smile.

"Hey you guys!" Everyone turned to the source of the voice to see two figures walking towards them which were easily recognized as Raven and Geo. Both teenagers reached them soon smiling happily surely at something they had been talking about, the blond had an arm around the girl's shoulders in a friendly manner.

"Hey what's up?" Speedy asked the newcomers.

"The game is about to start and you need to go to your seats now." Raven answered pointing at the 'home' stands.

"We can't save your places forever you know?" Geo spoke up not sounding annoyed, just joking around with them.

"We'll be right there." Robin assured with a nod "We were just saying hi to an old friend of ours."

"Oh well try not to-" The sudden pause made everyone pay attention to the girl so nothing went unnoticed.

It didn't go unnoticed the way Raven's eyes widened before they narrowed looking somber, it didn't go unnoticed how her jaw tensed and her hands balled into fists. Also it didn't go unnoticed how Geo-Force pulled Raven closer to him or how he moved her a step back so he could stand somewhat in front of her, his own face was that of anger which was rarely seen on this boy's features unless it was something big to him. The last thing the rest of the Wilson High students there noticed was that it all happened, the moment the newcomers laid eyes on the person the other 5 were talking to.

Slowly all heads turned to the only Jump City High student there who was staring back at the purple-eyed girl with slightly wide eyes showing surprise upon the previously confident face. Everyone was silent as this all happened, the tension could be felt by everyone and it was very uncomfortable. Finally, the now surprised boy spoke one single word.

Sorry for the delay, I was going to update before but my beta hasn't been able to return my mail so I'm uploading the non-beta-ed chapter. Sorry if it has too many mistakes. But hope you enjoy this little chapter with new alliances and some meetings that kinda were to be expected but stil heheh.

Anyway, please review despite taking so long and I will try to update my other stories soon as well. Oh! Also, I'm not good with cheers and I need some for both schools- The Wilson High Titans and The Jump City High Foxes. Either offensive or defensive work as they will compete against each other in the game. The more cheers I get the sooner I'll update since it'll save me think up on many, many, lame cheers. Yeah I'm that bad with them.

Next Chapter: The secret's revealed, tension is arising. But let's have it a little later, Cheerleaders Showdown as another challenge between schools and there are no ties.
