"I'm ready!" Beast Boy whispered to himself.

"Ready for what?" called a voice from behind him.

He turned around and saw Raven, cloak swept to her side by the wind. Her face was serious, yet soft and her eyes still held the mystery of what she was thinking.

"I...I was g...going to...go down and t...talk to you." Beast Boy stammered nervously.

"Really? What about?" Raven said, a taunting tone filling her voice. She walked over to her green friend and took a seat beside him.

"Um...a little voice of reason told me that I might have forgotten to tell you some...crucial information," Beast Boy said, rubbing the back of his neck absentmindedly.

"Was that little voice a little blond, blue eyed, super-heroine girl?"


"You might say that the same little voice talk some sense into me." Raven said, looking down at her swinging feet.

"Really?" asked Beast Boy.

"Yeah. And she kinda told me what you said about me," Raven mumbled.

Beast Boy gulped and let out a nervous laugh, "So uh...yeah...guess that...well, you know."

"Maybe, I should tell you that...I'm sorry for not believing you when you said...well, what you said."

"It's okay. I'm sorry I was kind of mean to you," Beast Boy responded.

They were quiet for a really long time, staring out at the setting sun.

"Beast Boy?" Raven asked, breaking the silence.

"Yeah?" he said and looked over at her, she was looking at him with a tilted head.

"Do you really think that...I'm beautiful?" she asked, her face becoming red.

Beast Boy's face flushed so red you couldn't even tell that his skin color was green, "Um...yeah."

"Don't be embarassed Beast Boy...because...I think you're cute..." Raven said sending him a small, shy smile.



Not knowing, or meaning to, the two of them had scooted uncomfortably close to each other. Now they just stared into the eyes of the person that, at some point in their lives and for some particular reason, they had fallen in love with. An idea crossed both Raven's and Beast Boy's mind, one that would've never been there before...well it probably would've been there but they probably wouldn't have done it. They began inching closer and closer until there was only minimal space between them, then...they went in for the kill...

As their lips were about to meet...

"Friends! We have returned victorious from our battle!" Starfire's cheerful voice cried from downstairs.

"Yo Beast Boy, Raven, where are you?" Cyborg called.

"You didn't kill him, did you Raven?" Robin asked.

Beast Boy and Raven quickly backed down and stood up.

"I guess that we should go down with them," Raven said, the disappointment showing on her face.

"I guess," Beast Boy replied, disappointment reflecting equally on his.

Raven brought her hood up then walked to the door. She took hold of the knob and turned back to face Beast Boy once more.

"We have some unfinished business Beast Boy," Raven smirked, "Shall we pick up later? Same place?"

"Uh...sure." Beast Boy squeaked and she walked back inside. He stood there in shock for a long time, then he started dancing his little victory dance.

"I can't believe my wish finally came true!" he yelled.

"Beast Boy! Where are you? I need to kick your butt on these video games!" Cyborg laughed.

'Now if only I could beat Cyborg at one video game!' he thought and made his way downstairs.

And Snip, Snap, Snout, this tale's told out!
