Disclaimer: I don't own Teen Titans.
It took months, but Raven had finally been able to track Alex down. During that time, she'd barely been able to sleep; all she could think about was finding Alex. And now she'd finally found the apartment she was staying in.
The trouble was, while she'd been thinking about finding Alex, she never thought about what she was going to do afterword.
So she was content with hiding around the corner.
That was, until a stranger with dark brown hair and bright blue eyes, holding a bouquet of assorted flowers, passed her in the hallway. He looked at her strangely as he passed, before turning the corner and knocking on a door.
Raven noticed that it was the door. The door she'd been staring at for hours. She quickly hid back behind the corner. She heard an exchange of words between two men before the door shut, and a moment later, it reopened.
"What do you want, Tommy?"
Raven's breath hitched in her throat.
She never thought she'd miss Alex's voice so much.
"I brought you some flowers." The boy said, "And it's Tom now. Stop making me remind you." He chuckled.
"Yeah, well, you'll always be little Tommy to me." Alex said.
Tom rolled his eyes, "You can call me whatever you want, if you go out on a date with me." He tried.
"Nice try; I said no. Give up, please."
"Why not? It's not like you're doing anything else."
"I have to watch Mikey."
"But Dan's home. So is Stacey, I can hear her. What are you, some sort of unpaid 24 hour babysitting service?"
"You could say that."
"Tommy, I mean it. Stop asking, okay?"
Tom sighed, "You're a tough one, Alex...I like that." He smiled.
"Well, if all's good and well, I'm shutting the door in your face now."
"Wai-!" Too late, the door slammed shut. Tommy shook his head, chuckling as he began to walk away.
As he turned the corner he saw that same strange girl in a blue cloak. Was it just him, or was she giving him the evil eye?
"Freak..." He mumbled as he passed. A moment later, the flowers in his hand exploded in every direction after being surrounded by a black aura, causing him to jump in shock. "What the hell?" He asked, looking around. When he found no visible source of what happened, he continued down the hall, mumbling incomprehensible words to himself.
Raven slowly stepped out from around the corner, making her way to the door. It was now or never. Every step she took closer was agonizing; her heart felt like it was going to leap out of her chest.
When she finally made it to the door, she promptly lifted her hand, and knocked on the door.
A second later, the door flew open, "Tommy, I told you-" Alex stopped dead in her tracks. It wasn't Tommy at the door. She couldn't even bring herself to say anything, she was so stunned.
Raven just stood there, looking into Alex's eyes. She couldn't believe she'd finally found her. Alex stared back, unbelieving that Raven was actually there.
"Uh..." She called behind her, "I'll be back." She said before stepping outside and shutting the door behind her.
The two continued to look at each other without saying a word. Alex looked at Raven confusedly, while Raven stared at Alex analytically.
Before she could stop herself, Raven whipped her hand up and slapped Alex as hard as she could across the face, ruining the silence that had accumulated between them.
Alex, surprised by the action, kept her head turned away. She couldn't bring herself to look in Raven's eyes. A few tears had sprung to her eyes, but it wasn't from physical pain.
"Is that all you came here for?" She managed to ask, clenching her teeth. After Raven didn't answer, Alex turned her head to look at the other girl, "Well?" She demanded.
"How could you just leave like that?" Raven demanded
Alex nearly scoffed as she leaned against the door. "Like you really don't know."
"I want you to tell me."
Alex opened her mouth as if she were about to say something when the door behind her suddenly swung door that she was currently leaning against. As Alex began falling backwards, she grabbed on to Raven to try and steady herself.
However, her plan failed as Raven just began falling with her.
Both girls fell to the floor inside the apartment, barely able to keep themselves from bumping their heads into one another. However, Alex still hit her head on the floor.
"Ow!" She cried out, looking up at the culprit who opened the door, "You did that on purpose!"
"What—I didn't do anything!" A tall man with brown hair said, "What were you doing leaning against the door like that, anyway? And who's this?"
"I-none of your business." Alex said, as Raven got up and then helped her.
"Who, what? What happened? I heard a crash." A girl with jet black hair in a loose ponytail came running up behind the tall man and asked.
"Alex and her friend here fell."
"Dan did it on purpose." Alex said, pointing an accusatory finger.
"I did not! How was I supposed to know you were leaning against the door!"
"Stacey, please control your husband."
Stacey rolled her eyes. "Who's this?" She asked, trying to avoid yet another argument between Alex and Dan.
"Oh. Stacey, Dan, this is Raven. She's my...uh..." Alex wasn't exactly sure what to label her as, so she just trailed off, "Yeah..."
Stacey looked at Alex curiously at the obviously botched introduction, but none the less turned to Raven, "It's nice to meet you."
"What's with the get-up?" Dan whispered to Stacey, though it was loud enough for everyone to hear.
Raven's face fell.
"What's wrong with what I'm wearing?..." She asked.
"Nothing." Alex assured, "Dan is just a douche. Please ignore him. All the time."
"Yeah, I let you live under my roof and I'm a douche."
"It's our roof, honey." Stacey corrected. Dan sighed. "Anyway, any friend of Alex's is a friend of ours." Stacey said, looking over Raven. There was just something about her that seemed familiar...
Dan scoffed, "I didn't know Alex had friends."
"I'm perfectly capable of making friends." Alex defended.
"Yeah I'm sure that's why-"
"Enough!" Stacey cried out, holding up her hands between the two, "Seriously, with all the arguing you guys do, I feel like I have to take care of three kids."
"He started it," Alex said at the same time Dan said, "She started it."
Raven looked between the three incredulously. She felt like she didn't have time for this, she'd just spent months looking for Alex. And all she wanted to do was be around Alex. "Actually," She interrupted Dan from saying some sort of retort, "Alex and I need to talk."
"Oh! Sure, no problem. We'll leave you two alone, don't worry." Stacey said, dragging Dan down the hall with her, and finally around the corner.
Alex just stood there awkwardly, not really sure what to say, "So..." When Raven just kept silent, Alex continued, "You wanted to talk?"
Raven wasn't completely sure on what to say. She could just be blunt, and come right out and say what she felt, but she immediately threw that out. They were both already in enough shock just by seeing each other. On the other hand, Raven didn't really know how to be subtle either.
However, before she even had the chance to say anything, Stacey came zooming around the corner, "I know who you are!" She exclaimed excitedly, pointing at Raven. Alex and Raven just stared at her incredulously as she continued, "You're Raven! From the Teen Titans! I knew you looked familiar."
Alex sighed, not happy about the revelation. "Yes, Stacey, she's a Titan." Alex said, throwing her hands up into the air in false excitement, "Woohoo for you for figuring it out."
"Hey, no need to be so sarcastic. The Teen Titans are all the way in Jump City, it's no wonder it took me this long to figure it out."
Raven just looked at Alex questioningly, "This is more of a Batman town." Alex explained.
"Actually, I was reading in some magazine about how you left right in the middle of a TV interview to look for some guy named Alex because you obviously love hi—..." Stacey stopped herself as she realized what she was saying, and looked between Alex and Raven. "Oh."
Raven just stood there awkwardly while Alex looked at her curiously, "You left in the middle of an interview?" Alex asked, with a hint of a smirk.
Stacey's eyes widened, complete realization dawning on her, "Oh. Uhh...I'll just...leave you two alone now..." She said awkwardly, backing up until she finally turned around and dashed around the corner.
Alex continued to look at Raven with a hint of a smirk, and it eventually began to intimidate her.
"You know how much I dislike Chad, anyway."
"Mhmm." Alex said, crossing her arms, still with that same look.
Raven couldn't look her in the eyes, so she was content with looking at the wall behind Alex. It took a while, but eventually the silence that accumulated between them also began to intimidate Raven. She wasn't used to this kind of situation.
"I...wanted to find you." She conceded.
"Why?" Alex asked.
"Your friend already said it..."
"I want you to say it."
"Oh!" They suddenly heard Dan say from around the corner, "You mean they're gay?"
"Shh!" Stacey said, trying to hush her husband, "They'll hear you!"
Alex face-palmed, while Raven just put her hood on to hide her blush.
"Maybe...this isn't' the best place to talk about this." Alex said. Raven nodded in agreement, "Stacey, we're leaving. Be back later." Alex called.
"Where are you going?" Dan asked.
"Okay, be back before dark." Stacey ordered lightly.
Alex rolled her eyes, "You don't have to worry about me, I have a Teen Titan to protect me.
"Even so, before dark."
"Yes, ma'am." Alex sighed, walking out the door with Raven.
As soon as they made it to the sidewalk, Raven asked, "They don't know you can take care of yourself?"
Alex shrugged, "Kind of. Stacey was my martial arts instructor, but I didn't tell anyone about my power or anything like that. She's just being protective, I guess."
"Why won't you tell anyone about your power?"
"Well, aside from the potential bad reaction I might get, it would lead to questions. You know how I don't like questions."
Raven nodded, but none the less asked, "What kind of questions do you think people would ask?"
Alex shrugged again, "I don't really know; probably about what I was doing the whole time I was gone. Then, of course, I'd end up thinking about what happened with John..." Alex said, before mumbling, "And you."
Raven let out a breath she didn't even know she was holding, "I couldn't stop thinking about you." She conceded.
Alex looked over at Raven, surprised by the statement. "Honestly…me either."
"Then why didn't you come back?" Raven asked, hurt evident in her voice.
Alex scoffed somewhat bitterly, "With everything that happened...I just couldn't. John was right, Raven, I'm not hero material. Not to mention you made your feelings pretty clear..."
"Hey," Raven said, stopping and reaching for Alex's hand, "You know John's wrong. You're a hero to a lot of people." She said before realizing exactly where they were. She raised an amused brow, "You took us to a park?"
"Um, only the best park ever." Alex said, tugging Raven to the playground. "Remember that one time I told you about how I used to go to a park every time I was upset? Well, here we are." She smiled, sitting on a bench.
Raven sat down next to her, "So this is kind of like your quiet place."
"Yeah, I guess you could say that. I come here to think and stuff. Usually no one comes around here."
"Thanks for bringing me to it."
Alex shrugged, "I figured I might as well return the favor." She said lightly. She hesitated before continuing, "So…you literally left in the middle of an interview with Chad Williams to find me?"
Raven simply nodded.
"Because I need you know something." Raven answered
When it was clear Raven wasn't going to continue, Alex couldn't help but ask, "What?" Her heart was beating loudly in her chest. Raven just had that effect on her.
Raven also felt her heart thumping in her chest as she finally confessed, "That day on the roof…before everything happened…" She began slowly, unable to look at Alex, before her words became rushed with anxiety, "I didn't mean any of it. I…was just…scared. Which is new to me. You make everything new to me. I've never felt this way before. It scared me; I'm not…supposed to feel. But I can't remember ever being as happy as the times we've spent together. As happy as I am just…being with you right now."
Alex watched Raven as the words rushed out of her mouth; it was obvious she was nervous. She'd never seen Raven in such a state before.
But her heart was melting with every word that she said.
"And I just…needed you to know that." Raven finished, still looking down. She couldn't bring herself to look at Alex, she was too afraid of her reaction.
Alex noticed a tear fall to the ground as Raven suddenly sniffled. Alex immediately reached over and turned Raven's head to face her; though Raven still couldn't look her in the eye. Alex saw another tear roll town Raven's cheek.
"Why are you crying?" Alex asked lightly, concerned.
"I…I don't even know." Raven replied with a breath of a laugh before she continued, "This is what you do to me."
"I make you cry?"
"No, you make me feel the way I've never felt before."
"Is that a good thing or a bad thing?" Alex asked, hand still placed on Raven's cheek as she lightly wiped away another tear with her thumb.
"It's good." Raven said, finally looking Alex in the eye, "Strange, new, and a little frightening…but good."
Raven was trying to keep her emotions in check, but just being around Alex and finally saying everything out loud…she couldn't stop herself. A small burst of black aura formed around some monkey bars that were on the playground, causing them to twist and distort. Raven jerked her head away from Alex's grasp, embarrassed.
Alex noticed the monkey bars, and then realized the inner commotion that Raven must have been enduring at that moment. She also figured that because of her magical outburst, everything that she was saying had to be true. Alex felt her heart jump in her chest.
"Raven," Alex called, her excitement and hope growing, "Look at me, please." Raven slowly turned to face Alex, and the first thing she noticed was that she was smiling. It wasn't a cruel smile, but kind, and genuine. "I feel exactly the same. It's amazing how you put it all into words like that. You're amazing."
Raven looked Alex in the eyes and saw the truth in them, her own hope beginning to grow. "You aren't angry at me?" she asked.
"What? No, of course not." Alex answered, "I was never angry, just hurt." At that, Raven looked back down, ashamed. "Hey, it's okay. None of that matters now."
Alex reached her hand over and gently turned Raven's head till she was facing her again. Raven still couldn't look her in the eye. Alex had never seen her like this; Raven was usually so calm and collected. It didn't matter to Alex, though. She actually thought it was pretty cute. She smiled, "You're so adorable." She breathed a laugh.
That statement honestly caught Raven off guard, but not as much as Alex's next action. She leaned over and pressed her lips against Raven's. It was soft, innocent, yet both girls' hearts were thumping erratically in their chests. Soon Alex licked the other girl's lips, asking for entrance. Raven quickly complied.
It shouldn't have surprised Raven that Alex tasted sweet, but it did. It was an incredible feeling that she thought she could never get enough of.
Alex felt the same; she slowly began to realize that she was going to become addicted to the taste of Raven. Somehow, she didn't care.
The kiss could have lasted an eternity and it still would have been too short for the two. But soon enough, Raven's emotions started getting the better of her and this time a swing was surrounded in a black aura before the chains broke apart.
At the sound of the chains breaking, Raven pulled away, albeit slowly. Alex barely even registered that there was a sound. But Raven looked away, ashamed and embarrassed again at her power.
Alex looked at the now torn apart swing, and smiled. "It's okay. I feel exactly the same."
Raven looked up at Alex and saw her genuine smile again, and couldn't help but smile herself. She leaned over and gave Alex a quick kiss. It didn't last nearly as long, but it got the message across.
Both girls couldn't help the giant smiles that crossed their faces.
"The others are going to be excited when we get back." Raven said, "They miss you."
Alex turned away as she realized what Raven was saying.
"What?" Raven asked, concerned.
"I'm…not going back, Raven. I can't."
"What do you mean?" Raven demanded.
"With everything with John—"
"He's in jail now. You don't have to worry about him."
"But I do. I mean, when I wasn't thinking about you, I was thinking about John and everything he said. He was right about me." Alex said.
Raven shook her head, unbelieving of what Alex was saying. It was like they were back to square one.
"He just said those things to get to you—clearly it worked. You're letting him win if you listen to him."
Alex sighed, looking at Raven, "It's not just that…it's the fact that I almost killed my own brother. What kind of hero does that?"
"You were trying to protect everyone."
Alex shook her head before saying lowly, "No. It was because I was so angry…" She clenched her jaw at the memory before continuing, "All I could think about was what he did to you. I thought you were dead, Raven. I wanted him to pay for that. Everyone must think I'm some sort of monster."
Raven put her hand on Alex's knee, "Of course not. If anyone else were in your position, the outcome would be the same."
Alex scoffed, "I doubt that."
"Alex, everything you did was understandable. And trust me when I say that everyone misses you."
Alex was silent for a long time before she finally conceded, "I miss them too…"
"Then come back."
"It's not that simple."
"I can't just leave Dan and Stacey."
Raven couldn't help but roll her eyes, "Now you're just coming up with excuses. Alex, you know you belong with us. We're all a family, as dysfunctional as it may be."
Alex almost smiled, "You really think I'm a part of that?"
"Of course." Raven assured. "We can make it work. Please."
It wasn't as if Alex didn't want to go back. She just felt like she couldn't. Not with everything that had happened with John. But the second she looked over at Raven, her resolve crumbled. It was almost as if Raven had stolen Becca's pouting power, for her eyes were shining and it even looked like her lip was going to start quivering.
Alex held back a smile, "If I go, it's on one condition."
"What?" Raven asked, suddenly concerned.
"You have to agree to…be my girlfriend." Alex said, though even as the words left her mouth she was blushing a bright red.
Raven smirked, "What, does that make you the boy in this relationship?"
Alex couldn't help the laugh that escaped her lips, "I'll take that as a yes."
"Of course it's a yes." Raven said, grabbing Alex's hand, "Are you ready to go?"
"Not yet," Alex said as she stood up, "I think I owe Stacey and explanation."
Raven simply nodded, teleporting them back outside of the apartment door.
Alex was obviously surprised by the action, "Wow, or we could do that. And here I thought we were going to walk."
"This is faster." Raven smirked.
Alex laughed, "Clearly."
"Are you sure you want to do this?" Raven asked.
Alex looked a little pretty nervous, but none the less replied, "Yeah." She said as she opened the door. "Stacey," She called as soon as she entered, "Can we talk?"
Stacey immediately appeared from around the corner, "Of course. What's up?"
"Well…I think you should be sitting down." Alex said, leading them into the living area, where Dan was already sitting and watching television.
"Dan, turn that off. Alex wants to say something." Stacey said.
"But it's Sunday football…"
"Dan." Stacey warned. Dan sighed and turned off the television, mumbling about how it better be important.
Raven was still holding Alex's hand as she stood in front of the couch where the husband and wife sat. Stacey had immediately taken notice to it, but kept her mouth shut.
"I think it's about time I come clean about a few things." Alex started, "And, well, first of all, yes, I did live with the Teen Titans for a while." She turned her head to face Raven, who smiled reassuringly, "And I can't remember a time I was happier." Then Alex looked back at the couple in front of her, "But then..."
"Yes?" Stacey couldn't help but ask after Alex trailed off.
"I found out that…I mean, I have to tell you…John is still alive." Alex finished, unable to look either of them in the eye.
"Wow." Dan said, "I thought this was going in a completely different direction."
"Dan!" Stacey chided, "Can't you be serious? This is big news!"
"I know. It's just…I thought this was going to be some giant coming out party or something…"
Stacey sighed, "We will talk about that later," She said, looking at Alex. Which Alex knew that the conversation would definitely come up. "But right now we're talking about this. How did you find him?" Stacey asked Alex.
"Well…that's also something I need to tell you…" Alex trailed off, before beginning her story. It was hard for her to keep going with all the questions and comments from Dan and Stacey, but Raven was by her side the whole time, helping her through it.
By the time she finished telling them everything, her and Raven were sitting on a chair adjacent to Dan and Stacey.
"Wow…" Stacey said, in shock about the whole thing, "I knew John was kind of a creep…but a full blown bad guy? I never would have guessed…"
"Are you sure it was him?" Dan asked.
"Yes." Alex snapped, already tired of all the questions, before she sighed, "Without a doubt. It's him."
"And you have a super power, huh?" Dan continued to ask. Alex just nodded, "Well? What is it?"
"I can, uh…walk through stuff. You know, intangibility?"
"Hm." Was all Dan offered.
"I am so sorry you had to go through all of that, Alex." Stacey said, "Where is he now? Jail?"
"Yeah." Raven nodded. It was the first time she spoke during the whole thing. "He won't be getting out any time soon."
Alex stood up, "So, yeah…I just wanted to tell you that before I left."
"Well, yeah. God, no wonder you were sulking all the time." Stacey said. Alex's face fell. Why did people always say she sulked?
"Isn't that what teenagers do? Act all…emo and angsty?" Dan asked.
"That's diff—wait." Stacey said, cutting herself off, "You're leaving?"
Alex cleared her throat nervously, "Well, yeah. I'm going back to the Teen Titans." She said, looking back at Raven, "Apparently they're family."
"Don't you consider us family?" Stacey asked, a little hurt.
Alex sighed, "You know I'm grateful for you letting me stay. But…the tower is just...where I belong."
Stacey sighed as well, "I guess it's not like I can stop you. Besides," She smiled, "I want you to be happy."
Alex smiled in turn, "Thanks."
"But! Before you go. Explain…." She trailed off, waving her hands towards Alex and Raven, "This to me."
"So now we're getting to the big coming out party." Dan said.
Alex and Raven both blushed.
Alex was embarrassed, but figured she might as well get the whole situation over with. "Yes, we're together."
"Since when?" Stacey asked.
"Uhh…about…a half hour ago?"
"How long have you liked each other?"
"A while." Alex immediately answered, "For me anyway."
"Me too." Raven said nervously.
"Psh," Dan started, "Teenagers. Always making everything so complicated. If you two liked each other for so long, why are you just now getting together?"
"Well, Dan, remember the two of us? We hated each other at first, and then finally admitted our real feelings." Stacey said.
"Oh, really? First I recall a night of really hot s—"
Stacey cleared her throat loudly. "Anyway, I'm happy for you two." She said, then looked over at Dan expectantly, but he just sat there. She roughly nudged his side.
"Oh, what? Yeah, me too." Dan said halfheartedly with a thumbs up, "Lesbians. Hot stuff."
Stacey rolled her eyes, while Alex resisted the urge to punch him.
"Though…" Dan continued, "This does explain why you kept turning Tom down…"
Alex made a sound of disgust, "He had no chance, regardless."
"Maybe if he were a girl." Dan mumbled.
"Stacey, I'm seriously about two seconds away from beating your husband."
"Please don't, I need him to help me take care of Mikey."
"Mike." Dan corrected.
"Well, I guess if you're leaving, this is goodbye?" Stacey asked, ignoring Dan.
"I'll come visit. You know I can't stay away from Mikey too long."
"Mike!" Dan corrected again. Alex ignored him and picked up her backpack, which was conveniently sitting near the couch.
"That's everything?" Raven asked, unbelieving.
"Yep." Alex answered. During her stay, she never ended up unpacking her things. She didn't have a room, anyway. She just slept on the couch, which she noted wasn't nearly as comfortable as the one at the tower.
"You're really leaving now?" Stacey asked.
Alex shrugged, "Looks like."
Stacey sighed and got up, catching Alex in a hug. "I'm going to miss having you around."
"I said I was going to visit." Alex said, rolling her eyes.
"It won't be the same." Stacey said before looking at Dan expectantly again.
Dan just shrugged, "Bye."
"Dan!" Stacey chided.
Dan sighed, but got up off the couch and walked over to Alex. "Stacey's right, it won't be the same without you around." He said, leaning in and giving Alex a heartfelt, albeit somewhat awkward hug. "And I hope you don't mind people knowing about you and your girlfriend here. Now that Stacey knows you can bet your ass she's going to tell everyone she knows." Dan said only low enough for Alex to hear.
Alex tried not to laugh as she rolled her eyes, "Yeah, I know." She said as she let go of the embrace. "Well, I guess I'll see you guys later." She finished, before grabbing Raven's hand.
"Are you ready?" Raven asked lightly.
"Yeah." Alex nodded, both nervous and excited to be going back to the tower. What would everyone say to her? Would they be ashamed of her even despite what Raven said? Would they welcome her with open arms? She took a deep breath, trying to calm herself.
"Wait." Stacey said.
"What?" Alex asked, exasperated.
Stacey looked at Raven, almost staring her down, "Make sure you take care of her, okay? I may not be some super hero, but I can still be a pain in your ass."
Raven simply nodded, looking over at Alex as she tried to hold back a smile. Alex shrugged, "I told you she could be protective." Raven let her smile show.
"Okay, are we ready now?" She asked.
"Yep." Alex said before a smile of her own broke out, "Beam us up, Scotty."
Raven rolled her eyes, but they quickly were enveloped in a black aura, and the next thing Stacey and Dan knew, they were gone.
"Well, I have to admit, that was pretty cool." Dan said.
Alex quickly found herself inside the common room of the Titans Tower. It looked exactly like she remembered.
The first thing she noticed was Beast Boy on the couch, playing a video game. She smiled at the sight.
"God, Beast Boy, it's been like, what, five months and you still can't beat that game?"
Beast Boy paused the game. Was he hearing things? He quickly craned his neck to look behind him, and sure enough, Raven was there. Accompanied by Alex. Raven was simply smiling while Alex looked at him, smirking.
"Alex!" Beast Boy exclaimed, immediately jumping from the couch and almost tripping over himself. He ran over to her and instantly wrapped his arms around her in a tight hug. "You're back!"
Alex laughed as she returned the hug, "Yeah. I'm back. How have you been?"
"How have I been?" He asked, "Miserable without you sulking around here."
"Why does everyone say I sulk?" Alex asked, quite serious. Beast Boy just laughed in turn.
"I can't believe you're here! And Raven too!"
"Don't even think about it." Raven said, as Beast Boy began to advance her with a hug. Alex laughed as Beast Boy slumped his shoulders.
"Oh, my god!" Beast Boy suddenly exclaimed, "Everyone is going to be so happy to see you! I have to call Becca!" He said as he started taking out his communicator. Flipping it open, he called all the other Titans. "Guys! Get in here quick! I have a surprise for you!" He exclaimed into the communicator.
"This better not be about that game." Cyborg deadpanned.
"No! It's even awesomer!"
Robin sighed, "Alright. Be there in a second."
Alex looked at Raven nervously, but she just took Alex's hand reassuringly again. "Don't worry, it'll be fine." She said.
"Fine? Are you kidding? Everyone's going to, like, maul you guys." Beast Boy said. At Alex's nervous look he continued, "That's a good thing."
It didn't take long for Cyborg to enter the room, and he immediately noticed the two girls, and that they were holding hands.
He grinned as he walked up to them, "Raven! Alex! I'm so glad y'all made it back." He said as he literally picked Alex up in a giant bear hug. Alex laughed as he twirled her around in a circle, "It wasn't the same without you."
"I missed you too." Alex laughed as he put her down. Just then, Robin and Starfire walked into the room.
"Alex!" Starfire exclaimed as she flew over to her. Alex got ready for the oncoming super strength hug as she flew up. Starfire enveloped her in a hug, squeezing the air out of her lungs. Alex couldn't have been happier though. "It is so joyous to see you!"
"We're glad that you came back." Robin said as Starfire let go. He walked up to Alex, who looked at him nervously. He let a smile grace his lips as he hugged her lightly.
"Me too." Alex said as Robin backed away from the hug, "But I have to admit…I wouldn't have come back if Raven hadn't convinced me. Don't get me wrong, I missed you all, but…" She trailed off, unsure what to say.
"It's okay." Cyborg said, placing a hand on her shoulder reassuringly. "We're just glad you're back now."
Raven nodded, reaching for Alex's hand. The motion didn't go unnoticed by the rest of the team. Cyborg and Robin smirked knowingly while Starfire smiled for her friends.
Beast Boy still didn't know what was going on.
"So…y'all are?..." Cyborg trailed off, the rest not needing to be said. Neither Alex nor Raven could look any of the Titans in the eyes as they blushed a crimson red. Cyborg kept his smirk, "Well, It's about time."
"Congratulations!" Starfire exclaimed, "I wish the two of you happiness."
"Thanks." The blushing girls managed.
"Seriously, were Starfire and I that clueless?" Robin asked.
"Yes." Raven, Alex, and Cyborg answered in unison. Robin slumped his shoulders.
"Wait." Beast Boy said, semi-confused. "What?"
Cyborg sighed, "You still don't know? Dude, you joked about it all the time."
Beast Boy looked from Cyborg to the two blushing girls, and then saw them holding hands.
It suddenly clicked.
"Ohh! Raven and Alex are actually lesbians?"
Everyone in the room nearly face-palmed.
That night, Raven and Alex sat on Raven's bed, ready to go to sleep.
"I told you it wouldn't be so bad." Raven said.
"Yeah, yeah." Alex smiled, waving a dismissive hand. She was pleasantly surprised when Raven suddenly leaned over and caught her lips with her own.
It didn't take long for the kiss to become heated.
Alex broke away, "We should sleep." She insisted.
"Sleep." Raven nodded, trying not to show her disappointment.
"Hey," Alex smiled, "I'll still be here to kiss in the morning."
"Is that a threat?"
"Possibly. Though, I doubt you wouldn't like the consequences."
Alex raised a brow, "Kinky. I never knew you had it in you."
Raven suppressed a laugh as she lightly slapped Alex on the shoulder.
"Ow!" Alex said, dramatically reaching for her shoulder, "I don't know if we can keep this relationship going if you're going to keep beating me, Raven."
Raven rolled her eyes as she laid down, "You love it."
Alex sighed contently as she laid down next to Raven, snaking an arm over her protectively. "You know me too well."
Both girls smiled gently as they quickly dozed off to sleep.
It was the most peaceful night's rest either of them had gotten in a while.
So it occurred to me that in the last chapter I forgot to put information about the song.
So, the last chapter is: I'll Be The Wings That Keep Your Heart In The Clouds by Mayday Parade.
This chapter: Saviour by Rise Against.
And yeah I kind of realize this chapter seems rushed...sorry again . I seem to be failing lately.
Anyway, thanks for reading! Probably...one more chapter to go? MAYBE two.
Review plawks :)
