Author's note: This is just a gentle reminder that I'm still new at this. It may not be very long, but at least I finished it and it can qualify for a piece of fan fiction. Yes this is technically a BB/Terra thing, so no flames. Have fun, enjoy, and please R&R.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
With pencil in hand I tried to understand all the questions, but it's no use. I shouldn't have watched that Wicked Scary marathon. Now what am I supposed to do? Oh well. That's what you get for staring at a screen for three straight hours instead of your text book. Free will and horror flicks-not a good combination. It is partially my fault for making the wrong decision. I did accidentally toss the book in the washing machine. How was I supposed to know it was right behind me? Okay, so I knew. I just hate geometry. And Mrs. Clark. But that's my choice. My choice...
I've made a lot of bad choices in my life. I guess the first was not listening to my father so I could learn how to control my powers. Now my hometown doesn't even exist. And then I didn't tell my friends about it and they ended up dying just like all the people I ever met. I went from city to city and town to town. It never stopped. That's when I finally came to Jump City. I thought I'd drop in, grab a bite to eat, and then check out the city before I left. Instead I dropped in, crushed a giant scorpion, and met the Teen Titans. And then I made the mistake of not letting them help me. That's when Slade caught up to me. I made one of the worst decisions of my life the following day.
Once the apprentice deal was set and I got control over my powers, I returned to the titans. I thought I could handle it. I didn't know I would start to like the hero lifestyle. In time the anger and spite I felt turned to guilt and regret. I was hoping to save Beastboy that night. Then Slade showed up and I lost him. After that Slade twisted my mind in so many ways. I didn't even think about what I was doing. I was 'thrilled' to destroy my former friends. I came back eager to fight and I tried to divide and conquer. Only I didn't and the plan backfired.
My head had been so clouded I actually thought Slade cared. Of course I found out the truth all too soon. And then I learned about the suit and what Slade had done to me. I nearly killed Beastboy. After the volcano incident, I never expected to live again. I was a rock! About a year later I was freed from my stone prison. Three months later the suit came off and I surfaced.
I did a lot of faking and forging, but I managed to get into a private school. I figured I wouldn't be bothered there. Once I changed my name and made a few friends I was fine. Then the titans returned to Jump City. I knew Beastboy had recognized me, so I pretended to lose my memory. I thought he would leave me alone, but he kept coming back. Thirty minutes ago he was giving me a second chance. And I passed it up for a normal life without him. Just another choice I made.
That bell rang as I finished my test. I handed it in and went to my locker. I grabbed my stuff and headed out the door. From the school grounds I got a good view of Titans Tower. A part of me still missed that life. And Beastboy. I looked back at the school and then at the tower. Should I? Could I? I went over both options in my head as everyone left for home. Once the campus was empty I had my answer. I dropped my things and grabbed a piece of earth.
After all that's happened, it's about time I made the right choice.
