Robin walked into the kitchen with a strange expression on his face. He stumbled over to the refrigerator and poured himself a small glass of orange juice, not caring that it was only one o'clock in the morning and he was the only one awake in the whole tower—
"Hey, Robin." Called a quiet voice from the table.
The boy wonder jumped slightly and turned around. Beast Boy was there sitting on a chair, also with a glass of orange juice, looking vaguely amused with something.
"Couldn't sleep, Beast Boy?"
Beast Boy grunted in response, then smirked. "Happy dreams, Boy Blunder?"
"What are you talking about?"
"Having good senses makes you know some things that others don't, Robin. For one thing, I heard you rush into the bathroom a few minutes ago, and when you came out…" Beast Boy leaned in, moving in for the kill. "You were in a new pair of pants."
Robin managed not to flinch. "I still don't know what you're talking about, Beast Boy."
"Is that so? Hmm… you're saying that the soft moaning of Starfire's name from your room was also a figment of my overactive imagination?"
"I did? Wait! No, wait! Wait! That came out wrong…" Robin trailed off a few inaudible words.
"Ahh, Robbie-poo… it's perfectly natural for boys your age! I mean, having wet dre—"
"OKAY! SO I DID! SO WHAT!"
"See? Admitting that wasn't so hard. Dude, It's a good thing that there's a security camera in here. I'll just remind Cyborg to check the records on this particular time in the morning, so I can get that angry outburst plus confession from the boy wonder himself!"
"If you do that, I swear I'll tell the team that I saw a green dog humping a blue garbage can last week."
"You hit really hard, Robin." Beast Boy was now a very, very pale and sickly green.
"It's my job, Beast Boy."
"…" Beast Boy slumped into his chair with a dejected look on his features.
"Anyway… what's keeping you from getting some sleep? You do know that there's a training session tomorrow, right? And you seem kinda… different." Robin adjusted his mask and looked over to Beast Boy, waiting for his answer.
"Good observation, boy wonder."
Robin refused to stop and continued on. "For one thing, you're not nearly cracking any jokes. And you're using longer words than you normally use."
"Now you're insulting my vocabulary?"
"No. Just stating the obvious." Reaching into the nearest cupboard, Robin pulled out a bag of chips and tossed it over to Beast Boy. "Eat up; it looks like we're going to be spending some time here."
"What? Dude, you said yourself that there's a training session tomorrow!"
"Friends mean more than training, Beast Boy. There's something wrong with you, and I intend to find out."
"Dude, I really don't think I'll like where this'll be going."
"Of course you're not. Because I'm going to bring in Raven."
"Now what does she have to do with this?"
"Everything, I suppose?" Robin replied with a grin.
"What do you mean everything? She ignores me all day, never laughs at my jokes, steamrollers over me when I attempt to get her to join me in something…" Beast Boy then realized how much he sounded like a lovesick high school student. "Damn. That came out wrong."
"Jeez, Beast Boy, I know what you're going through. Girls are cruel to people like us."
"Why? I mean, hey, you must be the hottest—"
"What do you think of Starfire's choice of clothing?" Robin asked calmly.
"Umm… revealing?" Beast Boy half joked, hoping to humor the whole subject away. What caught him off guard was the response.
"Exactly. What about Raven?"
"I know she wears it for practical uses, but that leotard she wears does show off her legs, and—" Beast Boy stopped, knowing he had said too much.
"Exactly. And they live with us. Every single second, they're just a few feet away. And—"
"And you make us wear our uniforms every single second of the day… and for us, it just happens to be FRIKIN' SPANDEX! Do you know how tight those things are, and how noticeable it is when they stretch in places not to be stretched? Oh goodness me, I've forgotten that you wear spandex as well! Does it mean you actually enjoy showing off your manhood?"
"That's not what I was aiming for!" Robin shouted back
"Do you know why I crack corny jokes or do stupid things around her? To make her mad and chase after me? Well, I do it because I need the fear to get rid of my unwholesome thoughts! Being seen having these thoughts would be bad enough! But you do know that I'm part animal, right? If I don't get rid of those thoughts, I might just push her against the wall and purr into her ear and—"
"You know Beast Boy… that sounds like a turn on to some girls to me."
Beast Boy just groaned.
So? What do you people think? First attempt at a TT fanfic, so reviews would be nice!
