AN: Nope, still don't own Teen Titans… yes, I know, let's cry together.
Chapter 1: We're in Heaven
The room was sweltering hot and the air was close. But, what else could be expected at a wedding reception. And the room wasn't just hot, it was loud. People were talking and laughing as well as dancing and mingling about. The night was almost over and things were finally starting to calm down. In the corner of the room stood the groom and his two best friends.
"So how're ya feelin?" asked Cyborg to Robin. "All of those commitment jitters finally gone?"
"Yeah, I think they're gone," smiled Robin.
"Well, it's a little too late for second thoughts, anyway," laughed Beast Boy. "You're married!"
Cyborg laughed with him and then the two began to sing, "Richard's married! Richard's married!"
"Alright, alright!" said Robin, quieting them down. "Thank God all of this attention is finally going to be off of me."
"Yeah," said Cyborg, punching Beast Boy in the arm playfully. "You're next!"
"Yeah, well, keep it down," said Beast Boy.
"So when are you going to ask her?" asked Robin.
"This weekend, I think," said Beast Boy. "And you two can't tell anyone, and I mean it."
"You don't trust me?" asked Robin.
"Dude, I know that you'll probably tell Kori and then she'll call Rae right up and tell her without knowing realizing that it's a secret," said Beast Boy.
"And me?" asked Cyborg.
"You're a bigger big mouth than Kori!" said Beast Boy. "So promise me you won't tell anyone."
"Okay, man, I promise," said Cyborg.
"Yeah, me too," said Robin.
"Good," said Beast Boy.
Just then the happy bride pranced over to her new husband with a large smile on her face. "Oh husband Richard!" she said, grabbing him by the arm. "Come, we must dance some more before the end of the night." And before Robin could say anything, she had pulled him on the dance floor.
Slowly Raven made her way over to Beast Boy and Cyborg, looking quite exhausted. Starfire had insisted that she dance a little and then wouldn't let her leave the dance floor. Poor Raven was in a large, puffy pink bridesmaid dress that seemed to swallow her. She was beat red and was dragging her swollen, aching feet.
"Having fun?" laughed Beast Boy.
"She never stops moving," moaned Raven. She made it to the wall and leaned up against it, feeling already how tired and sore her body was. "And she wouldn't let me leave."
"Well you've never been one to do somethin you don't want," said Cyborg. "Why didn't ya just leave?"
"Do you have any idea how hard it is to tell a Tameranean bride that you want to sit down?" asked Raven, slipping her shoes off and letting out a sigh of relief. "I would rather try to make Gar read a book."
"Hey, don't take shots at me," said Beast Boy.
"Sorry, I'm just very tired," said Raven. "And I can't wait to get this damn dress off of me."
"I can't wait to get that dress off of you, too," said Beast Boy with a mischievous grin as he got very close to her.
"Oh shut up," she said pushing him away, but couldn't help giving him a tired smile. "I hate it when you drink, you get all giddy."
"I only get giddy for you," he said, kissing her.
"Would you cut it out!" she said. "Victor's right here."
"Hey, don't mind me," chuckled Cyborg.
"Alright then," Beast Boy smiled. He wrapped his arms around Raven and began to kiss her passionately while feeling her body through the horrid dress. Raven was quick to stop this, even though she really liked it when he touched her, because they were in public and Beast Boy was slightly drunk from the night's champagne.
"Okay, enough," she said, pushing him off of her. "Are you ready to go?"
"Home?" asked Beast Boy. "Why, are you?"
"Yes," said Raven. "I have to drive us home and I don't want to fall asleep behind the wheel."
"Okay, let's go then," said Beast Boy, giving her a light kiss. He took her hand and the two proceeded to leave. They said goodbye to Cyborg and then to the newly wedded couple. Right before they walked outside they slipped their holographic rings on, then went to their car.
Raven could barely see over her puffy dress as she got into the car, so she stuffed it under the steering wheel the best she could. She was always the designated driver since she didn't drink. Sure, she had had a little champagne that night, but it was just for the toasts. She barely had half a glass. She didn't mind being the designated driver; she trusted her driving more than Beast Boy's, who always drove the two when they went out.
They finally made it home and both were very relieved to see their house. As soon as Raven walked in the door she stripped her dress off and went up the stairs to their room in her undergarments. Beast Boy wondered if he could get her to wear an ugly dress everyday. He would love to see her walk around the house in nothing but her panties and bra, and maybe even less than that.
After he locked the door he quickly ran up the stairs after her, but by the time he made it to their room she had already thrown on one of his large tee-shirts.
"Damn," he muttered to himself.
"What?" asked Raven.
"Oh nothing," he sighed and started to take his tie off.
Raven shrugged and proceeded to their bathroom. It had been nearly eight months since Beast Boy's accident and her proclamation of her love for him. Since then, she had moved into Beast Boy's room, because it was a tad bigger and had a better view.
Beast Boy sat on the edge of their bed and took his shoes off. As he did he thought about the wedding and how wonderful it had been. But now he had thoughts of his own wedding in mind and he smiled at the thought.
"Hey Rae?" he called to her.
"Hmm?" she answered, since her mouth was full of toothpaste.
"What'd you think of the wedding?" he asked.
"What do you mean?" she asked, once she spat the foam from her mouth.
"Well, didn't you think it was…cool?" he asked, for lack of a better word.
"I guess," said Raven, washing her toothbrush off and placing it back in its holder. "But I know I'm not having a wedding."
Beast Boy felt his heart jump as she said it. "What, uh, what do you mean?" he asked.
"Well, I just think weddings these days are far too extravagant," said Raven, coming out of the bathroom. She had a washcloth in her hand and she was washing her face. "And I'd hate having all of that attention on me. I'd probably loose my cool and blow up the church or something."
"So… you don't want a wedding?" he said, trying to make sure he heard her right.
"Nope," said Raven, drying her face off with a dry towel.
"Oh," said Beast Boy. He finished getting undressed and went into the bathroom to brush his teeth as well. He passed Raven and she gave him a kind smile. He smiled back, but he suddenly felt very low. There went all of his plans for the weekend.
Raven crawled into bed and let out a moan as her muscles relaxed. She was so tired and so sore. She knew she wouldn't be able to move the next day. She let her head relax into her pillow, but she couldn't sleep yet. She wanted him next to her.
Finally Beast Boy came out and climbed into bed. She smiled and snuggled up to him. He wrapped his arm around her lovingly, but she could feel something was off with him all of a sudden.
"Are you okay?" asked Raven.
"Huh? Oh yeah," he said with a fake smile. "Just tired."
"You sure?" she asked.
"Yeah," he said, kissing her sweetly, which made her smile dreamily at him. She cuddled into his chest and soon fell asleep. She had never been so happy with her life before. Everything was just about perfect and she could never ask for more.
As for Beast Boy, he was ready for more, but it seemed that this was as far as Raven wanted to go. He loved her; he loved her with all of his heart. He wanted her to be with him for the rest of his life. And there really was nothing stopping them from doing that, but he just wanted to make it official. He wanted her to be his forever and he wanted to be hers forever.
Slowly the morning sun beamed through the large window of their room, casting a strong, golden light upon their sleeping bodies. Beast Boy had Ravens back pressed up against his chest and he had her cuddled in his arms. This was how they woke up every morning, no matter what.
Beast Boy sighed and opened his eyes. Luckily, his back was towards the sun, so he didn't blind himself. All he saw was his beautiful girlfriend lying in his arms. He smiled and held her closer, taking in her scent and the feel of her soft body. He could never get tired of waking up to this wonderful site every morning.
"God, I love you," he said, kissing her cheek. She gave a slight smile in her sleep and snuggled with his arm that was around her. After a few more wonderful moments, he realized that his bladder was about to burst and he had to get up. He slipped his arms out from around her and carefully made sure to get out of the bed without waking her up.
Once he had relieved himself he took a look at the clock. It was 11:30 in the morning. Beast Boy nearly did a double take. He couldn't believe Raven had slept in that late. He, of course, could sleep in until two if she let him. But the latest she ever got up was nine.
He went back over to the bed and saw that Raven had no intention of waking up anytime soon. He smiled and quickly crawled back into bed with her. Unfortunately, this was what woke her up.
"What were you doing?" she asked as her eyes began to open.
"Just went to the bathroom," he said, wrapping his arms back around her. "Go back to sleep."
"What time is it?" she asked.
"Don't worry about it," he said, kissing her neck and closing his eyes.
"Why, is it late?" she asked, smiling as he kissed her.
"Kinda," he said and felt himself wanting to go back to sleep.
"Come on, tell me," she said, turning over so she could face him.
"Fine," he sighed, defeated. "It's 11:30."
"No it's not," she said half laughing, half serious.
"Yes it is," he said, opening his eyes back up. "Please don't get up." Raven looked at him and he could tell she was thinking it over. He grabbed her and pulled her closer. "Please?" he said again and began kissing her.
After about a dozen kisses Raven sighed and said, "Well, you don't give me much of a choice, do you?"
Beast Boy smiled and kissed her again. Then the two got comfortable and fell back to sleep. They could never have imagined being so happy together. Not just happy, but in heaven. And it seemed like nothing could ever bring them back to Earth.
