The morning sun rose greeting a new day. Cyborg yawned deeply as the sun hit his eyes. He stretched out his arms and in doing so fell off the couch. He rubbed his head and cursed under his breath. His eyes opened and he looked at his surrounding's. He had no idea why he was on the couch, or why his stomach was twirling and his head felt like a drum set. Since he didn't feel so good he decided to make himself something to eat to make himself feel better.
Cyborg walked over to the refrigerator and opened it up, scanning over the food which was inside. For some odd reason nothing seemed edible to him. He groaned and closed the refrigerator door. He took a seat on one of the kitchen stools and rested his head on the table and closed his eyes.
"You're up. That's good."
Cyborg raised his head and opened his eyes at the sound of a voice. Right in front of him was Bumblebee. She walked up to him and kissed him on the cheek.
"So, how do you feel?" she asked him, fixing up some coffee.
"Well, that's what you get when you stay up all night drinking."
"Oh, like you've never done it before."
"Yeah, but at least when I do it I don't go crazy like you."
"Crazy," he asked and raised a brow. "What do you mean by crazy?"
She walked over to him and sat down, taking a sip of her coffee. She handed him a cup of water which he happily took, hoping it would level his stomach. Bumblebee set down her cup of coffee and watched him a smug look on her face.
"You said you wanted to lick whip-cream off my boobs."
Cyborg literally spat out his water and Bumblebee laughed at him.
"You can't be serious." he said while looking at her.
Cyborg rubbed his head. He couldn't believe he said that to her. "I'm sorry."
"Don't be," she said. "I got you back by leaving you on the couch."
"You left me on the couch," he said in some disbelief. "But I never did that to you."
"Yeah, but your heavy."
He groaned and she smacked him on the head.
"Ow," he grabbed his head and glared at her. "What the hell was that for?"
"For getting in a bar fight."
"I got in a bar fight?"
"Yes, you did. And you ruined my bar in the process."
"You better be sorry. First thing tomorrow you and the guys are gonna go down there and fix the place up," she said and Cyborg nodded. "I hope you guys fix it up soon. Now where am I supposed to drink?"
"Well...you could always stay in with me," he said while wrapping his arms around her waist. "You, me...some romantic music and champagne..."
"I'm not really the champagne type of girl," she said, wrapping her arms around his neck and bringing her face closer to his. "More of a tequila woman."
He couldn't help but to laugh at this. "Okay, tequila it is...and maybe some whip-cream..."
"Not in your life, Sparky."
The gap between them closed and their lips met in a passionate kiss. They slowly pulled apart and looked into each other's eyes with smiles on their faces.
"I think I'm gonna like staying in with you." she said as their lips met once more.
He pulled away from the kiss and wrapped her in his arms, burying his face in her shoulder. "Thank you."
"For what," she joked. "Leaving you on the couch?"
"For accepting me. For making me feel normal."
She pulled away slightly and looked at him. "Sparky, what are you talking about? You are normal."
"I know that now, thanks to you. I used to think because I was part robot, I wouldn't be able to be the man you wanted."
She was going to say something but he silenced her by placing a finger on her lips.
"I know what your going to say, and your right. I was foolish for thinking like that and I know that now."
"I'm glad you finally figured that out. I don't care if your part robot, you're all the man I need."
"You wanna know something else?"
"I love you."
She smiled at him. "I love you too."
They closed the gap between them and stayed like that for awhile. When they pulled away Bumblebee smiled and walked back over to the kitchen.
"So, how 'bout making some waffles for the girl you love."
Cyborg couldn't help but laugh. "I would be honored."
He began to remove the necessary things needed to make waffles and place them on the counter when something caught his eye. He grinned.
"Hey, Bee." he called, getting her attention.
"Would you like whip-cream with that?"
Her face turned a deep red and Cyborg laughed. Suddenly a big blob of tofu flew into his face. Bumblebee grinned at him.
"You should know better then to tease me, Cyborg." she said with a wink.
The morning sun poured into Raven's room bringing light in. The curtains were wide open allowing a free pass into her room. A pair of eyes twitched due to the light and soon opened revealing a deep forest green. Beast Boy looked around and noticed he was in Raven's room. For what reason, he did not know, but he sure wasn't complaining. He turned around in the bed and came face to face with his sleeping beauty.
The morning sun didn't seem to effect Raven at all as she continued to sleep. Beast Boy couldn't help but stare. She seemed so peaceful in her sleep and that thought alone made Beast Boy smile. All he wanted was for her to be happy. A strand of purple hair fell over her face and Beast Boy tucked it behind her ear. His hand traveled to her cheek were he stroked her gently. His touch made her stir in her sleep and soon a pair of purple eyes met with a pair of green ones.
He smiled sheepishly at her. "Sorry, I didn't mean to wake you."
A small smile tugged at her lips. "It's alright. Waking up next to you isn't so bad."
They leaned in to kiss each other when Beast Boy suddenly stopped. He covered his mouth with both hands and sat up. His face turned green...well, greener than usual. Something was coming up and it would be best for him to get out of Raven's room before he made a mess, one he would have to clean afterwards. He quickly made a dash for the door and ran out the room.
Raven stood up, confused at why the moment was ruined. Then it dawned on her. Beast Boy was suffering from the after effects of boys night out.
A little while later Beast Boy returned to Raven's room to find her all dressed up. She was no longer in her night clothes, but instead had on some hip-hugger navy blue jeans and a loose fitting purple blouse.
"Drink that," she motioned over to a cup of green liquid on her night stand. "It'll make you feel better."
He walked over to the green drink and looked at it. A smell drifted up to his nose which was coming from the drink. It didn't smell good at to think of it, the drink had nasty written all over it.
"I rather not."
Beast Boy knew better then to go against Raven. He nervously picked up the glass. As much as he didn't want to drink this...this...what ever it was, he trusted Raven. He took one sip of the substance and his eyes widened.
"Eww," he cried and made spit sounds with his mouth, trying to get the horrible taste out his mouth. "It taste like shit."
"Drink it all," she said. "I know it taste bad but it's a great hangover cure."
After much whining from Beast Boy the glass was empty and strange enough, he felt a lot better. His stomach didn't hurt and his head didn't either. He got a 'I told you so', from Raven. He rested on the bed and Raven sat next to him, a book in her hand. She would occasionally look over to him and a small laugh would escape her lips.
"What?" he asked, wanting to know what was so funny.
"Nothing, it's just something I remembered from last night."
"Oh...care to tell me what it is."
She nodded. "Your annoying, but funny when your drunk."
A blush crept on to his cheeks. "What do you mean."
"You put on quiet the show is all."
His cheeks turned even redder. He looked away and then looked back to Raven. Her sudden happy mood had changed, she seemed almost depressed.
"Raven, what's wrong?"
"It's nothing," she said and looked up at him. "It's silly but...when you were out last night...I missed you."
He wrapped his hand around her's and stared deep in her eyes. "It's not silly. To be honest, I feel the same way when you go out."
"I would have never guessed we get so attached to each other," she looked down with sudden embarrassment and red cheeks. "I love you, Beast Boy, more than anything and that scares me."
Tears suddenly spilled from her eyes and Beast Boy wiped them away. He cupped her cheeks and tilted her head so she was looking directly at him.
"I'm scared too," he admitted. "I'm afraid of losing you. I love you, Raven."
"You won't ever loose me. I promise."
She sealed the promise the only way she knew how, with a kiss. The kiss turned into something more when he leaned her back so he was positioned on top of her. He pulled away and smiled down at her. His eyes then flickered to her clock.
"It's almost lunch time," he said. "How 'bout a stop at your favorite café."
"I would like that."
He helped her up and she slipped on her shoes. The two of them headed for the door but stopped when Raven's cell phone rang. She flipped it open to see it was a message from Cyborg. Her eyes widened when she saw what it was.
"Beast Boy." she said, grabbing his attention.
"Yeah." he turned to look at her.
"What's this?" she asked, showing him the picture on her phone. It was the one of him at the bar when he was dancing and singing Milkshake. His cheeks burned a hot red and Raven raised a brow, still waiting for an answer.
Beast Boy cursed under his breath. "Cyborg you're a dead man."
The open curtains allowed the sun to pass through the window and bring light into the purple colored room. Starfire turned in her sleep and expected to find Robin. Her arm reached out to hold him but nothing was there. Feeling that their was nobody there, Starfire opened her eyes revealing a pair of emerald green orbs. Upon seeing an empty bed she frowned. Where was Robin? She lifted herself up and noticed a small folded piece of paper that had her name written on it. She picked up the note and read it. It was a letter from Robin saying he had went back to his own room to do some paper work.
"Oh Robin..." she shook her head.
He stays out all night and gets up early for work, some people just never change. Starfire glanced out the window to see that it was a beautiful day outside. Another frown came to her face. Robin shouldn't be working, he should be resting or at least enjoying himself. A smile came upon her face as a plan formed in her head. She would just have to distract him from work...
She smiled as she made her way to his room. Thoughts of what they could do together passed by in her mind. Just being near him made her heart flutter and her smile widen. Starfire finally made it Robin's room and knocked. There was no response. Remembering how drunk he was yesterday she began to worry. What if he was sick? Worry for his well being overwhelmed her and she opened the door to his room.
Robin was sitting by his desk with piles of paper work surrounding him. Upon hearing her voice he turned around and smiled. "Oh. Hey, Star."
"Good morning, Robin," Starfire said with a cheerful smile and entered the room. "I see you are back to work."
"How come you are not working in the living room?"
"It was kind of...preoccupied."
Silence fell in the room and Robin turned back to his work. Starfire shifted in her spot.
"Are you...are you feeling well," she asked. If he was not she would be more then willing to take care of him. "Because if you are not I can always--"
"Oh..." she sounded hurt and Robin immediately felt guilty.
"I didn't mean it like that, Star," he apologized. "I just got a lot of paper work and my head hurts...probably for all the drinking I did."
They both let a small laugh escape them and Starfire sat on the bed. Maybe coming to see him wasn't such a bad idea after all.
"Did you have fun at guys night out?"
"Yeah, it was alright," he said, turning back to his paper work but keeping an ear open to listen to Starfire. "But I can't remember half the night. I remember coming home but that's it."
Starfire's eyes widened at his words. He didn't remember last night...after what he said to her. She shook the thought's away. It shouldn't matter, he was drunk after all, but Starfire couldn't help but feel hurt. Deep inside she wanted Robin to remember and to hear him say he didn't...
"You are sure you do not remember the events that occurred last night?" she asked him, hoping against all odds he would remember.
"No," he turned to look at her. "Why? Did something happen?"
She hid her emotions as best as she could. "No, nothing happened."
"Okay, then." he turned back to his work.
Starfire couldn't fight the tears from falling. She stood up from were she was sitting and walked as fast as she could to the door. Hearing her footsteps, Robin turned around.
"Star, are you okay?"
"I'm fine." she said as she walked out the door.
Before she left Robin heard her say, "I can't believe you don't remember." Remember...remember what? What ever it was he had to find out. He couldn't stand to see Starfire suffer. He instantly thought it had to do with something from last night. Robin focused all his thoughts on last night, forcing his brain to remember what happened.
He remembered playing a game of shots and then getting into a bar fight. The next thing he recalled was coming home and watching Starfire stand in the moon light...Starfire...Starfire!
Robin remembered a very important detail from last night. He cursed himself for forgetting. He jumped to his feet and ran to the door, he had to see Starfire. Robin stopped and walked over to his dresser. Opening it up he pulled out something very important and ran out his room.
Starfire laid on her bed, the tears soaking her pillow. Silkie crawled up to her and smiled. She petted him gently, her thoughts still focused on the Boy Wonder. Silkie crawled off the bed and to the door, looking back at Starfire to see if she was paying attention to him. Starfire wiped the tears away and got up. When Silkie crawled to the door it meant he wanted to go outside. Starfire opened the door and Silkie crawled out, not that she paid any attention to that. Outside her door was the Boy Wonder himself.
"Can I come in?" he asked.
She nodded and stepped out the way, allowing him in. She sat down on the bed and looked down at the floor. Robin figured this was his time to speak and he walked closer to her.
"Starfire, about last night, I remember," she looked up at him as he said this. "I'm sorry."
"Do not be sorry, Robin. You were drunk, it meant nothing."
"But that's just it," he said, taking the seat next to her on the bed. "It does mean something to me. Starfire, you're the most important person in my life and I want to spend my life with you."
"You're only saying these things to make me happy. Robin, when you asked me to marry you I was so happy because it was something I always wanted to hear...but it wasn't you and it never will be."
"That's not true...to be honest, I've been thinking a lot about us and what our future would be like. For awhile now I've had this," he pulled out a small black box from his pocket. "I can't imagine my life with out you...and I know I don't deserve you..."
He got down on one knee and opened the box revealing a beautiful golden ring covered in diamonds. Tears formed in Starfire's eyes.
"Starfire, will you marry me?"
Millions of emotions hit Starfire at once. This was everything she ever wanted. Her whole body was filled with joy. She was speechless.
"Starfire, I kind of need an answer."
"Yes, yes! A thousand yes!"
She threw her arms around him and they kissed. Robin pushed her back on the so he was on top of her. They pulled away and both smiled. Starfire held up the ring to get a better look.
"Yeah. It belonged to my mother."
"What?! Robin, I can not accept this, I am not worthy--"
He silenced her by putting a finger to her lips. "I want you to have it. And I believe she would to."
Starfire smiled and pulled him down into a gentle kiss. It seemed like forever until they pulled away.
"So, I guess we have a wedding to plan." Robin said with a smirk.
Starfire began to panic. She pushed Robin off of her and by accident he fell on the floor. Starfire began to pace.
"There is so much to plan! I need a dress and we need a cake! I'm not even sure how a Earth wedding goes!"
Robin reclaimed his seat on the bed and pulled Starfire on to his lap. Her worries were forgotten when he wrapped his arms around her waist. The look in his eyes told her everything would be fine.
"I love you."
"I love you too." she said, wrapping her arms around him and kissing him once more.
The smell of strawberry's drifted over to him and perked up his senses. There was no need for him to open his eyes for he already knew who was there by the smell. He still felt a little tired so he made no attempt to move. The sound of foot steps made their way up to the bed and then there was a sudden shift in weight that was felt on the bed. A warm hand gently stroked his cheek and his hair. A smile came upon his lips.
"Speedy," said a gentle and caring voice. "It's time to get up."
"Mmm," he groaned. "I don't wanna get up."
"You can't stay in bed all day."
"Sure I can. As a matter of fact, why don't you join me."
He grabbed her by the waist and pulled her down next to him. She laughed by his sudden actions and he smirked. Bringing his lips to her neck he began to kiss her. His lips traveled up till he reached her lips. His hand slowly began to make it's way up her red tank top when she pulled away.
"Don't you think it's a little to early for that." she playfully scolded him.
"No." he said, his hand trying to make it's way back up her shirt.
"Well I do," she said, pushing his hand away and standing up. "I'm going to go get something to eat, do you want anything?"
"I'll be right back," she said, opening the door. "Just try and relax."
He moaned a response and leaned back in the bed. Wondergirl giggled and slipped out the room. A smile formed on Speedy's lips, oh how he loved the sound of her laugh. For some reason it made him feel happy, but he didn't know it be... He shook that thought away. That couldn't be the reason...could it? Speedy didn't like the thoughts forming in his head and he decided to do something that would help him take his mind of it. Turning his head to the side he faced the window. The once white fluffy clouds had turned a dark grey color and covered up the suns rays. With out warning it started to rain.
"That's weird," said Wondergirl walking in with a tray of food. "It was sunny outside just a little while ago."
"Yeah well, you never know with these things." Speedy said. Sitting up he noticed the tray in her hands and raised a brow.
Wondergirl blushed in embarrassment. "Well I know you said all you wanted was some aspirin but I thought it would be good for you to eat something."
"Thanks, I'm actually kind of hungry."
"Well I got your favorite," she said taking the top off of the tray. "Coco Puffs."
For awhile the two ate in silence until they were both done with their food. The rain continued to fall from the sky and hit the window. Seeing as their was nothing better to do Wondergirl started a conversation.
"So, how did things at the bar go?"
"Before the fight?"
"Uh...yeah." she smiled sheepishly.
Speedy felt like punching himself. Why were these feelings forming inside of him when she smiled. "It was fun."
"What did you guys do?"
"Drank, made fun of Robin, play pool and talk."
"Really. What you talk about?"
"Guy stuff as in cars or guy stuff as in girls?"
Speedy looked up and stared into her eyes. Before he knew it he was telling her the truth. "Guy stuff as in girls." Dammit. He cursed himself for not being able to lie.
Wondergirl moved closer to him with a grin on her face. "Did you talk about me?"
"Can we just drop it." he said standing up.
"Come on, Speedy, tell me. I promise not to get mad."
"I really don't wanna talk about it..." his voice became serious and Wondergirl became worried and stood up.
"Is something wrong?"
Speedy turned around and looked into her blue eyes. He couldn't understand his feelings for her. "I don't deserve you."
Wondergirl wrapped her arms around him. She had no idea why he as saying things like this and she wanted to prove him wrong. "Speedy, your wonderful to me and I love you," her sudden words made him pull away. "What's wrong?"
"I think we should...split up."
"There's something you want that I can't give you."
"You can't be serious. Is it something I did?"
"No, it's not you, it's me."
"Like I haven't heard that before."
"I just...I just need to figure something out."
Wondergirl bit her lip and tears formed in her eyes. "Fine...I understand. Tell the Titans I had a good time."
"Your leaving, in this weather?"
"Let's just say I need to clear up my feelings." she said bitterly.
The door closed and Speedy fell to his knees. "What have I done..."
The emotions inside of him became clear now. He felt a pain inside of him when she walked out. She wasn't even gone for a minute and he already missed her. Then it hit him...he loved her. He loved everything about her, the way her hair felt between his fingers, the smell of her perfume, waking up next to in the mornings. He loved her and he had just let her go. A new found determination rose inside him. He had to get his girl back.
Wondergirl stepped out into the freezing rain, her clothes immediately getting soaked. Her heart felt heavy and all she wanted right now was to forget about men, particularly Speedy. Maybe she would spend some time with her fellow amazons. That would help her forget about Speedy.
Tears formed in her eyes though you could not tell due to the rain. She couldn't take her mind of him. Had she done something wrong, is that why he didn't want to be with her? Thinking about him made her hurt even more. She could even hear his voice...wait a minute, she could hear his voice.
"Wondergirl," Speedy called out to her. "Don't go!"
She wanted to fly away but couldn't. It was like her feet was glued to the ground. Speedy came running over to her and she opened her mouth to speak but no words came out. Speedy finally made it over to her and grabbed her, holding her as close to him as possible. He placed his yearning lips over her and all thoughts were forgotten. The two stood on the roof, the cold rain pouring down on them though they could not feel it. The only thing they felt was their lips touching and their own body heat. Speedy's hand stroked her long black hair and Wondergirl cupped his cheeks. They finally parted for some much needed air.
"I'm sorry. I was acting like a complete idiot pushing you away and I'm sorry. I don't want you to go, I don't want you out of my life."
"I don't want to be apart from you either."
"I need to tell you something, something important. It took me awhile but I finally realized I love you."
Wondergirl felt pure joy hearing him say that. "You do?"
"I do. I love everything about you. Your kindness, your strength," he pushed her wet hair away from her face. "The way you make me feel."
She wrapped her arms around him and kissed him with as much passion as before. Speedy held on to her never wanting to let go. The rain started to die down and soon stopped completely. The sun peaked it's way in through the clouds and brought a new light to Jump City. Speedy and Wondergirl pulled away from each other and stared deep into each other's eyes.
"I love you." she said.
He wrapped his arms around her and hugged her. "I love you too."
