I am really sorry about the wait. School is alot harder and the fact that one of my classes is having an ordeal with homework grading. I have also been very busy around the house so I didn't have enough time to sit down and type. Last, I completely ran out of ideas, so im happy on how it came out. I hope you enjoy this chapter.

Chapter 6: The Chat

I paced back and forth nervously, growling to myself. What happened during that fight? I wasn't one who would lose it so quickly, but something didn't seem, right. For some odd reason, I attacked Dr. Light without even thinking about it. Now, to anybody, that wouldn't seem odd. But the strange thing was that I wasn't GOING to attack him; I was going to startle him instead.

When I felt that click in my head, I had this weird, out of body feeling. It was like my body moved on its own and I had no control. I sighed nervously; there was something else that had been bothering me too lately.

Why did Beast boy save me like that? Sure, if he was in danger I would intervene, but the wolf part of it was ebbing away at my sub-conscious. I sat down and sighed. Maybe all I needed was to meditate again.

Quietly, I closed my eyes and chanted, feeling my body slowly lift off the ground. Happily, I felt all of my worries and hate melt away until…..

I fell flat on my face. Hissing in pain, I got up and shook myself off. My snout was in a lot of pain, and when I saw the blood on the carpet, I realized that the fall must have broken it. But why did I fall in the first place? Using my healing powers, I slowly healed my wound. With a growl, I tried to meditate again, but this time I didn't levitate. Now this was annoying.

I turned sharply to see Beast boy to walk in. Perfect, I thought. But it seemed as if he didn't notice me, until I growled from the throbbing pain from my nose. I saw his ear twitch, pausing as he realized that I was still in the room.

"Oh hey Raven," he said, finishing his sandwich and walking over to me.

"Hello Beast boy." I murmured. I was not in the mood to talk to anyone and hope that he would just leave. He cocked his head like a puppy.

"Rae, is their something bothering you?"

"Not now Beast boy."

"You know I was just trying to help." On any other occasion I would have broke his neck right their; but having your powers fail on you so suddenly doesn't happen every day and I needed all the help I could get.

"Remember when I attacked Dr. Light?" he nodded, "Well when I attacked him, I couldn't control my body. It was if I had no control over it and it just reacted on its own." He paused, thinking.

"Maybe it's just your instincts finally kicking in."


"Yea, you know, instincts. The necessary drive for animals to act to a certain situation without thinking about it. It's a natural part of their sub-conscious."

"And you're certain because….."

"Remember I'm part animal myself. I've had my fair share of instinctive actions." I thought this over. Beastboy has had a lot more knowledge of animals than I do. Maybe he's right.

"Now that I think of it, it does make sense. Thanks Beastboy." His eyes lit up a bit.

"Uh, no problem Rae." He smiled.

"But that still doesn't explain why I fell."

"You fell? When?"

"Just now. I was stressed so I decided to meditate. But as soon as I started to calm down, I fell." He looked at me strangely.

"Well that's explains your snout." he pointed out the still sore and red nose.

"But I can't tell you much on that. Maybe you were just really tired from that trick you pulled on Dr. Light today."

"Maybe that's it, but I'll keep an eye on it." He smiled at me and picked up his sandwich. As he was about to take a bite, a sudden realization crossed over his face.

"Hey Rae, did you eat yet?" It was then I noticed that I was indeed hungry.


"Want me to get you something?"

"I can get it myself Beastboy. Just because I don't have opposable thumbs doesn't mean I'm crippled." His ears drooped a bit.

"But I guess you can for one day." He brightened up and ran into the kitchen.

"So, what do you want?" I eyed his sandwich. Realizing that he asked me a question, I went with what my stomach felt like.

"Do we have any meat?" I asked, almost excitedly. He froze; this wasn't a normal answer from me.

"Umm, ok Rae." Cautiously, he took some sandwich meat from the fridge and put three slices on some bread. Taking a plate he put it on and dropped it in front of me.

"Enjoy." I never realized that I could be so hungry in my life as I violently tore meat to shreds and swallowed it in record time. Once I ate it, I realized what I did. I quickly sat up and coughed lightly. Beastboy was indeed shocked, but I continued to stay in that position until he was done with his own food. As soon as he was done, I got up and walked towards the hall. I suddenly turned towards him.

"Hey Beastboy?"


"Theirs probably going to be a lot of things that I won't understand, being a wolf and all. Can I trust you to help me with them?"

"Of coarse Rae, that's what friends are for right?"

As I left the room, it occurred to me that even though he called me "Rae" throughout our conversation I did not yell at him even once.
