"I can't believe you dragged me down here," I complained. The Titans were hanging at a karaoke place on the other side of town. We were all, except Robin, wearing a holo-ring to keep a low profile and possibly not get mobbed by fans. If I didn't know better I would've thought we really were a bunch of teens just hanging out.

"Come on Rae, its not that bad. I even picked the one that makes a mean hot herbal tea cause I know you like it," my green friend said. I wouldn't admit it but I was flattered by his consideration. That's what I liked about Beast Boy; he really cared, but only as a friend.

"Yeah….a friend." I thought, almost sadly, as the music started to fade and the guy who had been singing "This Afternoon" by Nickelback, got off the stage.

"Alright y'all," came the DJ's booming voice over the intercom, "were gonna keep this groove going, so who's gonna be next?" Beast Boy suddenly got that mischievous glint in his eye and I knew he had something planned. He turned to me and I was suddenly scared.

"Why don't you go up next Rae? It'll be fun."

"You're kidding right?" I asked in disbelief. I had always hated singing except when I was alone in my room with my ipod.

"Nope, but you don't have to go if you're too scared." I clenched my hands on the arms of the chair and narrowed my eyes at the changeling.

"I'm not scared."

"Prove it." I sighed and got up from my seat and started to make my way up to the stage, but not before saying,

"Jerk." I noticed that the DJ was looking through the CD's and I hoped to God he would pick one I knew.

You see, here they chose the song for you and you either sung or mumbled. He slid a CD into the slot and I instantly recognized the music that played.

I'm tuggin' at my hair

I'm pullin' at my clothes

I'm trying to keep my cool

I know it shows

I'm staring at my feet

My cheeks are turning red

I'm searching for the words inside my head

No matter how hard I usually tried the words I was looking for would never come when I tried to tell Beast Boy something. Everytime our hands accidentally touched I'd blush and instantly stare at the ground and pull my hood up.

Chorus

I'm feelin' nervous

Tryin' to be so perfect

Cuz I know you're worth it,

you're worth, yeah

If I could say what I want to say

I'd say I want to blow you away

Be with you every night

Am I squeezing you too tight

If I could see what I want to see

I'd want to see you go down on one knee

Marry me today

Guess I'm wishin' my life away

On these things I'll never say

I knew if I got the chance I would never tell him how I feel. I could never tell him that I...that I loved him. This song had really hit the target.

It don't do me any good

It's just a waste of time

What use is it to you what's on my mind

If it aint coming out

We're not going anywhere

So why cant I just tell you that I care

Chorus

Cuz I'm feelin' nervous

Tryin' to be so perfect

Cuz I know you're worth it,

You're worth it, yeah

If I could say what I want to say

I'd say I want to blow you away

Be with you every night

Am I squeezing you too tight

If I could see what I want to see

I want to see you go down on one knee

Marry me today

Guess I'm wishin me life away

On these things I'll never say

I always managed to get tougue tied around him. Everytime I thought I could say it, tell him that I really do care, the words would slip away and all that would be left was an akward silence.

What's wrong with my tongue

These words keep slipping away

I stutter, I stumble

Like I've got nothing to say

I'd stutter because I was so nervous, and as I watched him now, he looked at me with that toothy grin of his and I thought of all the times it had happened where I would fall and he was always there to catch me.

Chorus

Cuz I'm feelin nervous

Tryin to be so perfect

Cuz I know you're worth it,

You're worth it, yeah

Guess I'm wishin my life away

On these things I'll never say

If I could say what I want to say

I'd say I want to blow you away

Be with you every night

Am I squeezing you too tight

If I could see what I want to see

I wanna see you go down on one knee

Marry me today

Guess I'm wishin my life away

On these things I'll never say

These things I'll never say…

Yeah....I never really tell him this. I'd never say any of it to him.

****** Well when we got back to the tower I went straight for the roof, my place to be alone when the tower got to noisy. I stood there watching the moon with a thought drifting in the back of my head. He deserves better. My thoughts were interrupted when I heard the door open and heard him speak. "Nice night tonight." Beast Boy.

"Yeah, guess it is," I reply not turning to face him. "What're you doing up here?" He takes a seat next to me and I can feel the emotions rolling off him in waves. Curiousity, and one I cant identify being the two main ones. And instead of answering my question, he asks his own.

"Who was that song for? I have an idea....but I want to confirm it." I stiffen and I wished he had asked anything else.

"What makes you think it was for anyone? The DJ picks a song at random remember?"

"Yeah thats true, but you were so into the music that I figured that it had some deeper meaning behind it."

Dang it! When did he suddnely get so deep? I hesitate and then after realizing it would be no use lying to him I reply softly, "You."

He sits there quietly seemingly in deep thought. We sit in an uncomfortable silence for, what to me, feels like an eternity. I was about to speak, say something, anything, when I suddenly feel his lips on mine in a soft kiss and when we depart I finally say the words I've been dying to say...."I love you."

"I love you too Rae."
