Disclaimer: I do not own Teen Titans. But I'd really like to!
The next day Raven healed all of Beast Boy's wounds, including his wrists. She told the other three Titans the events that led up to them finding her bloody and mauled body on her bedroom floor. She then went down to the police station to tell them this as well so it could be put into Nathan's file. She also spoke to Nathan's father and warned him that if he helped his son in any way he may lose the five Titans that have been keeping the city safe for so many years and may have to actually do his job for once. Needless to say, the chief of police was put in a very tough position. Upon returning to the tower she grabbed Beast Boy and took him up to the roof to take care of his primal side. Beast Boy knew it would do anything Raven requested.
"So, are you ready?" Raven asked.
"Are you kidding?" said Beast Boy, dead serious.
"Alright, let's get this over with," said Raven. "Now, it's going to be strange at first. Just relax and everything should be fine."
The two sat accordingly and closed their eyes, finding their center. They began to chant and soon became lost in a meditative trance. Beast Boy soon found himself in the darkness of his mind. But he jumped when he felt someone take his hand. He looked to his side and there she stood.
"Wow, that was easy," he said with a smile.
"I told you it wouldn't hurt," said Raven. "Now, where is it?"
"I'm right here."
The two turned and saw the creature, sitting obediently. Beast Boy had never seen it behaving so well. He had a good feeling that this really was going to be the cure. Thank God for Raven.
"So, you're the one giving Beast Boy so much trouble, hmm?" said Raven, placing her hands on her hips and glaring at it.
"I'm just doing what's in my nature to do," it said.
"And it's in your nature to not listen to your master?" Raven asked.
"I just want what's best for me," said the creature. "And, since we're the same, that means I want the best for Beast Boy."
"Well what you want for Beast Boy isn't the best for him," said Raven. "You need to go back to sleep and only come forward when you're called upon. And you're to obey, not take control."
"But I'm so much stronger," it said. "It isn't logical for me to not be in charge."
"Your strength is only making Beast Boy weak," said Raven. "And, since you're the same, that means it makes you weak as well."
"Huh," it said. "I think I overlooked that fact."
"It's odd," said Raven, turning to Beast Boy. "Your primal side is oddly more articulate than you are. I'd think your pure animalistic nature would be a bit more dimwitted."
"Don't ask me," said Beast Boy. "I have no idea how my mind works."
"Well, you need to figure it out," said Raven. "It'll probably help you think more clearly. Now, back to you." She turned back to the creature. "If you don't follow my orders then I'll come back and suppress you permanently."
"If you do that, Beast Boy won't be able to use me anymore," it said.
"Does that bother you, Beast Boy?" Raven asked, turning to the changeling.
"Not really," Beast Boy shrugged.
The creature gulped and began to back away. "Fine, I submit. I shall go back to sleep and I'll only wake up when Beast Boy calls upon me," it said, defeated. "But, know this, I'm only doing this because of you, Raven. I'd do anything for you."
"That's good to know," said Raven. "Now off with you."
The creature sighed and headed back into the darkness. Beast Boy immediately felt a great pressure taken off of his being. He sighed as he felt relief at last.
He opened his eyes and saw that he was back out of his mind and on the roof once more. He looked to his side and saw Raven coming out of her trance as well. She turned to him and gave him a small smile.
"Done," she said, simply.
"Wow, that was easy," said Beast Boy. "And I feel better already!"
"Well I would think so," said Raven, setting her feet upon the ground to stand. "And if it ever comes back you tell me and I'll make good on my promise."
"Sounds good to me," said Beast Boy, getting to his feet as well. "Now, about our date…"
"I thought you said this was a date," said Raven.
"This was the ice breaking date," said Beast Boy. "Now we're going to make a real date."
"I'm not sure I like this new bold you," said Raven.
"Hey, you may learn to like it," said Beast Boy with a shrug and he took her hand so the two could leave the roof.
"So, what do we tell the others?" asked Raven.
"I think they kinda already know," said Beast Boy. "I might've let our little kiss slip out when I was about to jump off of the roof last night."
Raven sighed and said, "Well, at least we don't need to worry about things getting awkward."
"So, you wanna go see a movie?" Beast Boy asked. "You can choose."
"How about we have a cup of tea and then we go see a movie," said Raven.
"Sounds good to me," said Beast Boy with a smile. "So, what movie you wanna see?"
"Something with a lot of talking and a complex plot," said Raven.
"Oh," said Beast Boy, shuddering on the inside. "Well, uh, I'm sure we'll have fun."
"If you stay awake through the whole movie we'll go to the arcade afterwards," said Raven.
Beast Boy's ears perked up and he smiled widely. "Awesome! Now that's what I call a date!" he said happily. "You're gonna make me one happy man, Raven."
"You're more than a man, Beast Boy," said Raven, releasing his hand and wrapping her arm around his, so they could be a little closer. "And I think that's what I like about you."
