Hello, this is my first story so I am sorry if it is really really bad please feel free to read and review thnks!
"Did ever raven sing so like a lark That gives sweet tidings of the sun's uprise?"
Raven sat up from her bed panting. The same dream had haunted her every night since trigon's little visit. Her heart pounded, and a bead of sweat traced her face. She looked around her room nervously; no one was in her sights. She gently stood and walked towards the door heading for her boyfriends room. She reached the door and lifted her fist to knock, it was then she heard, "Oh Starfire." It was not an oh Starfire of sympathy, or excitement, or anger, it was an 'oh Starfire' of lust.
Raven gasped. And took a step back, then turned and ran for her room. Upon reaching the door she closed it and slid down the inside. She felt the tears of betrayal running down her face as she buried her head in her hood and covered her face with her hands. She felt like she should have known, should have seen it coming. Starfire was always robin's favorite. Whenever they split up robin would always have himself with Starfire, and sometimes they wouldn't return home until hours after the mission ended. She felt like she should have known.
She felt her body racked with sobs, and she didn't know what to do. If she told robin she knew and she broke up with him she would feel more alone, and if she ignored it, robin would continue to cheat on her. She sat there for almost an hour before she felt someone's warm arms around her. She looked up slightly shocked that someone was in her room. She was leaning on the door and the window had been locked. The only way into her room was by teleportation, and if that had occurred then it would have set off one of Cyborg's alarms. She looked to her left and right into the skulked mask of red x.
Raven jumped slightly away from him, "How did you get in my room?" She asked as she tried to wipe the tears from her eyes.
"Sunshine the security here ain't all that great. Whatssamatter?" He asked, his smooth robotic voice trying to calm her. He stood and walked towards her and she scooted away again. He stopped and looked at her.
"Why are you in my room?" She asked trying to make her voice monotone again. But fear and pain and disgust were making it hard.
"No reason in particular, I was on the roof. Then my phone rang. Someone wanted me to steal something from Cyborg, I accidently snuck into your room not his. Whats wrong?" She could feel his sincerity. Part of her wanted to trust him, tell him the truth, part of her wanted to kill him for being in her room, part of her wanted to take her anger out on him and send him to another dimension and part of her wanted to leap of the ground and hug him.
He knelt down so his face was at her level, the skull mask was doing its purposed job, making him look intimidating. As if he could sense her discomfort he reached for the bottom of the mask and began to pull it off of his face. As it slid off gently raven took in his looks. He had black hair like robins only his was longer. It nearly reached his shoulders. It was cut so a large chunk of his bangs filled into his grey eyes. His skin was pale like that of a vampire, And his lips were a light pink.
He gave her a light grin and asked again, "Whats wrong sunshine?" she felt tears welling up in her eyes again as she wrapped her arms around his neck and rested her head on his shoulder. It was all the response he needed. He gently placed his hand on her back and his other hand pulled off her hood and gently stroked her hair. He soothed her with a few "shhhhh…." And a few, "It's all right." As she cried into his shoulder. He felt her body racked with sobs.
He sat up a bit moving her weight. "Comon." He said as he pulled her off the ground and rested her in his arms bridal style. He carried her to the bed and gently lowered her down. She looked at him tears still in her eyes as he sat next to her. He hugged her again and she relaxed against him slowly calming down. He played with the ends of her hair and thought about how beautiful she was without the blasted hood on. Eventually three hours had passed leaving it to be three in the morning and raven could feel red x falling asleep against her. She leaned back and looked up at his tired face; it was obvious that he hadn't slept in twenty four hours.
He smiled at her lightly, and calmly brushed a tear off of her cheek. "we should both get some rest." She said as if trying to find something that made sense.
"Right." He said, he started to stand but she grabbed his hand.
"But I don't want you to leave." She said, he looked at her nearly confused as to what to do.
"Alright, I can stay here." He said calmingly. She stood and pulled back the cover and slid herself onto the bed. Red x gently removed his tattered cape and crawled in behind her. The bed was large, but they each kept close to each other. Red x had his arm gently wrapped around her waist and she kept her hand on his. They fit perfectly together like a puzzle. With his free hand he gently played with the ends of her hair as they both drifted off into a light sleep.
