Notes: Hey everybody! Well, I'm back with a Revised Version of Confusion just in time for Christmas. A lot of the material will be the same, but there will be a lot of new stuff as well. I'll try to update every day if I can. Enjoy!

Beast Boy paced up and down in the doorway to his room, hands clasped behind his back in thought. His mind whirled with ideas, but none of them seemed good enough…not for her.
Tofu, his mind finally thought. I just need to eat something and then I'll be able to think clearly. I can't think on an empty stomach, now can I? The pacing stopped and he entered the corridor.
He stopped when he reached a familiar doorway, the name 'Raven' proclaimed on the front. What could he possibly get her? Think, mind, think!
Well, obviously, anything pink would be a bad idea, as was anything cute and cuddly. So he needed something dark and…depressing. Hmmm, that wasn't really his thing. She didn't seem the type to go crazy over jewelry or soft things like most girls, something that he had learned from Starfire. That plan had backfired with the stuffed pig that he had given her the previous year. But maybe that had been because she thought that he was hinting at something. Girls didn't like it if they thought that you were making fun of their weight. Of course he hadn't been, but that was beside the point.
"This is way too hard," Beast Boy muttered out loud, shaking his head and not looking where he was going.
"What's so hard," a voice asked, startling the green Titan out of his thoughts. He looked around to find a pair of violet eyes staring straight at him.
"Uh, walking and talking at the same time," he shrugged, clearly uncomfortable. Raven raised an eyebrow at this, but didn't question him. She probably didn't think it was worth the time to ask anyway.
"Yes Beast Boy," she commented, "That does seem like a difficult task for you." Though the sarcasm was obvious, a small hint of humor was heard in her voice. Wait…Raven….trying to be funny?! What was wrong with the world!
"Yeah, you know how I am," Beast Boy laughed nervously. Raven looked at him strangely, than smirked suddenly and started walking away. Hey, it was probably the closest thing to a smile that he'd ever seen on her face before. He grinned like an idiot to himself.
"You coming," Raven's voice floated down the hallway.
"Yeah," he replied, "I'll be right there." The grin vanished from his face and he sighed as she walked out of sight. Then he groaned at the thought of trying to find something for her. Christmas was only a few days away and he couldn't think of what to get for her. He had already bought gifts for everybody else, but her gift was by far the hardest to figure out.
Well, it had to be something nice that subtly gestured at the fact that he liked her. Wait, he liked Raven! Where did that thought come from?
"My head hurts," he groaned out loud, "Too much thinking!"
"It'll do that to ya," Cyborg called out as he appeared in the hallway, "Are you coming or not? I heard you talking to Raven like, five minutes ago," Beast Boy quickly followed after him, half listening to the conversation Cyborg was trying to start. There was a moment of silence, "Hey, you ok?"
"Yeah, I'm fine, why," BB asked, looking up, confusion lining his face.
"Oh, nothing, just the fact that I just told you that I made an all-meat breakfast and all you said was 'okay'," Cyborg stated, "And that you nearly ran into the wall." Beast Boy blinked his eyes, only now noticing that the wall was only about six inches from his face.
"Guess I've been thinking too much lately," BB shrugged, shifting his position and walking alongside Cyborg again.
"You…thinking too much," Cyborg laughed, "Is that even possible?"
"Hey, I may not be that smart…or think all that much…but I do have a brain," BB protested. He paused, "Did you know that Christmas is only a week away?"
"Yeah, you've only been counting down the days until Christmas since July," Cyborg pointed out.
"Well, did you know that I haven't gotten anything for Raven yet," BB asked.
"No, I thought you didn't l-" he paused suddenly, "Wait, do you like her?"
"NO," Beast Boy called out, "I mean, no, of course not." He glanced down at the ground, shifting from foot to foot nervously, before glancing back up at him, "Is it that obvious?"
"Oh yeah" Cyborg replied with a grin, "It's hilarious too. You…the ever optimistic, funny guy, likes Raven, the-"
"Not so loud," Beast Boy said hurriedly, eyes slicing across the hallway in case anybody was nearby.
"BB, no one else is here," Cyborg said, "They can't hear anything."
"You sure," Beast Boy asked, meeting his eyes and holding their gaze for a moment. Cyborg nodded, "Promise me you won't tell anyone?"
"Promise," Cyborg replied, "Not like anybody would believe me anyway. Now, come on before breakfast is over." Beast Boy immediately followed after him, resuming his old habits and complaining that there was no tofu.
