Hello all you happy people. This story has not been updated in awhile, but a recent review brought it back to my attention. For those waiting for Planted Jokes to update, it's on its way. I've got a lot going on in real life. College, aftermath of sister's wedding, trying to plan out mine...sort of....floods (I'm certified to take care of water and flood damage) writing a novel, and allergies. nothing major. Anyway, I still don't own Teen Titans and I still can't take credit for anything other than the idea of a coalition of authors writing this, yo, dudes who helped out earlier, I don't know if you're still on but PM me if you want to help continue, if not then I'll just finish on my own. Oh well, On with the show.
A dark shadow raced through the thick foliage, moving at almost unprecedented speed as it rushed on towards its goal. A small clearing quickly came in view. And lying in it was a small figure. This figure would be otherwise unremarkable if his skin wasn't green, and the amount of injuries forced upon his body. The shadow felt its eyes widen as a lioness and her cubs were examining the small lifeless body, preparing for a meal. A sharp sense of pain pierced her heart as Raven shouted the first thing that came to mind. "Azarath Metrion Zinthos!" The sudden black energy engulfed the lions as they suddenly went flying into the air and landed some hundred or so yards away. Raven made sure it wasn't fatal as Beast Boy wouldn't like that if...when he woke up.
Quickly kneeling by his body, she began a cursory examination even as she summoned up the healing energy. Pain overwhelmed her. Sheer, unimaginable pain threatened to overtake her senses as she removed shrapnel and other pieces of glass, and then sealed the injuries. Not even half way done, her body couldn't take anymore as she had absorbed too much of his pain. The sounds of the others fighting through the thicket barely registered in her ears. Her eyes could barely see Cyborg now performing first aid on their friends injuries. She could barely register Robin getting everything needed to jump his heart back into beating. She couldn't even hear the emotions in her head fighting to be heard. Time seemed almost to be at a standstill to the dark sorceress, her glazed eyes reflecting the pain she had taken upon herself to increase the boy's chances.
"Clear!" A sudden shock, shaking the green teen's body. Increasing the voltage.
"Clear!" Even more power flushed into his body. One last chance.
"Clear!" A beat. Two...wait, beats? Beast Boy felt a very hard thump in his chest, beating painfully against what felt like every nerve in his body. Another beat, and another. Almost jumping for joy as the realization slowly dawned on him that his heart was beating. He would live. Fully prepared to come up with a great pun or joke that would surely get Raven to laugh, he tried to open his eyes and urge his vocal cords into working with him. When that didn't work, he figured why not try again. He was going to live and that was worth celebrating. Again, his eyes refused to obey his command. Shaking his head to get them to work, a sudden pop resounded the area, the source coming from his aching joints. Finally his eyes were working again. Opening them with a literal painful slowness, he was greeted by the site of his teammates smiling faces. "Dudes...you came for me..." His metallic best friend lightly smacked an uninjured part of his body.
"Of course we came for you BB. Wouldn't want Robin to take our high score tie in Tunnel Hunter Marathon, Extreme Speed! We need you to keep him busy while I mop up the title!"
A pained chuckle forced its way out of Beast Boy's throat. "In your dreams metal butt." Then he promptly passed out.
Robin let out a sigh of relief, knowing that Beast Boy would live. Cyborg was continuing his examination of Beast Boy while Starfire was flying through the air in joy. Raven had forced herself to sit up and was hovering in a lotus position, meditating softly. But if one looked closely, Robin could see a small smile breaking across Raven's otherwise cold features. "How's he looking Cyborg?" All that was met was silence. "Cyborg?"
Cyborg paused, turning to look at Robin slowly. "Man, Beast Boy's lucky to be alive. If it weren't for the quick healing Raven gave him, he wouldn't have survived another few minutes. But his body is in no condition to travel. He won't survive a trip back to the tower. It's across the Atlantic and the entire American mainland. And he won't survive getting to a hospital either. He's stable for now, but unless we get him some professional medical attention, he's living on borrowed time."
Robin kicked a nearby rock. "Perfect! Where's the nearest town?" Cyborg's head had an antennae pop out of it and started gathering data.
"I'm picking up a small settlement a few miles to the south east. Man, I wasn't expecting a village with that many life signatures in Upper Lamumba."
