A/N: Hey! Im back! Two in one night, to make up for me being gone for a while. Some more fluff in this one, hilarity… Well just read! And this is the last chapter, guys. Look out for some of my other stories, though!
I couldn't believe it. He liked me back. Beast Boy, the handsome 17 year old, liked me. No, loved me. And I loved him. I'm still not sure if I can commit to these new feelings, but being with him just felt so right….. so I have to try.
"Beast Boy… how are we going to tell the others?" I asked, looking up at him.
"We'll worry about that later, Rae. And yes, whether you like it or not, I will be calling you Rae." He smiled that big, goofy, signature grin that always melted me.
"I've always liked it. I've always liked your jokes, because that meant you cared for me. You've always made an effort. Thank you… Gar." He looked at me, smiling huge.
"No problem, Rae. And I like that nickname." I then laid back on the bed. He could sense I was worried. Barely, but still. He laid down next to me, and looked at me. I twisted my body to rest my cheek on my palm, and…. You know.
"What is it?" he asked, sounding concerned and sincere.
"It's just…. We're opposite. Completely. And, because of those differences, I don't know how we're going to make it work…."
"We will, Rae. We haven't killed each other yet. I love you too much to let you go." I was not expecting those words. Or what he did next. He kissed me. It was gentle, but sweet. My eyes fluttered close, and I melted into it. It wasn't hot or passionate, but gentle and it meant something. It showed our love. So, there we were, our lips moving in sync with one another, our souls as one. Then, because of lack of oxygen, we had to pull away. We kissed for what seemed an eternity. Like time had stopped. We put our foreheads together, whispering.
"I love you so much, Gar. And I agree; we will make it work." He smiled.
"Besides, Rae…. We're not completely opposite. We've both had family issues and hard pasts… We both had someone betrayed us…. In spirit we're similar."
I smiled and thought about what he said. I didn't realize how long we were in there, but I was aware soon, as Starfire, Robin and Cyborg came to my door.
"Uhm, Raven? You in there?" Beast Boy silently chuckled. Then he whispered in my ear,
"You know….the secret they were keeping?" I nodded my head. His breath tickled my ear. "Well, I was that I loved you." I smiled. Medium sized. I didn't just smile at that comment…. At my life. I was so… happy with him. Then, Cyborg called.
"Yo, Raven? You in there?"
"Yeah Cyborg, just a minute." I said, back to my monotone, which had recently been filled with emotion for Beast Boy.
"Okay." He replied.
"Alright…. I think we should tell them… In time."
"Yeah. You tell Robin, and I tell Cyborg?" I nodded.
"I'll tell Starfire, in one of our 'girl talks'." I scoffed. He chuckled.
"Okay. I'm going to turn into a fly and go onto the roof. I'll be back." He said, winking. I smiled. And with that, He was gone, and I got up and opened the door, and stepped out.
"Yes, guys? What do you need?" I asked, monotone.
"Oh, well we did not see you at all when we had come home. Nor did we see Beast Boy…" I could tell she was hinting something, with a teasing glint in her eye. She partially knew. I had always shared that bond with Starfire… She could just tell stuff about me. Like Robin, but…. About more romance things.
"Well, I haven't seen him." I shot a knowing glance at Starfire, and she knew immediately. She knew that I also wanted to have 'the girl talk'.
"Well, he is not here. I am going to talk with friend Raven, now away with you." She said, shooing them away. They just sauntered down the hallway. We went into my room. Starfire started immediately.
"So what happened?" she asked, excited. I explained the whole book thing to her before I told her what happened between me and Gar, or else it would have been confusing.
"Well…. We just admitted our feelings, and…." I blushed, hard.
"Well what?" She squealed in delight and excitement.
"We… kissed." She gasped.
"Was it the 'hot and steamy'?" I just had to laugh. It was so funny hearing her say that.
"No, Starfire. It was gentle. Like he was expressing that he loved me. Slow, but…. Nice."
"It sounds most wonderful! I wish I could experience that…" she said dreamily.
"And you will. Probably with Robin." She blushed and giggled.
"I envy you. Robin has not made a move to do the kissing of me, and I'm glad that you and Beast Boy have finally done it."
"Don't worry, Star; Robin's just paranoid, shy, clueless and naive. I could go on about my brother, but I'm not sure you would like it." She giggled. Just then, I heard a fly buzz in through under my door.
"That's him, Starfire." She nodded.
"I understand. I will let you have time where you are alone but together. And I will not tell Cyborg or Robin."
"Thanks, Starfire." Then, she left. That green fly on my bed turned into my boyfriend, grinning. He leaned over and kissed me. Instead of saying 'hey babe,' or something like that, he said something much sweeter.
"Hello, mi amor." I didn't even know Beast Boy could be this sweet.
"Beast Boy, you surprise me everyday." I said.
"What, that I learned Spanish, just to call you 'my love'?" I blinked. He did that, just for me?
"No…. that you're being so sweet." He smiled. I hugged him.
"I can be sweet, romantic, annoying… anything. I mean, you are my one and only love, and I do meant it." He whispered into my ear.
"Beast Boy…. I know we just got together and everything…. But, we've loved each other for a really long time, so…" He looked me in the eyes. I continued. "I would really love to have a family with you." He looked shocked for a moment. Not a bad shock, But an omg-this-is-great shocked.
"Beast Boy?" He snapped out of it, and looked at me, grinning huge.
"I would love to have a child with you, Rae. I love you, so much. I'll stick with you no matter what." We just smiled at each other, until he swept me off my feet. Literally. He stood up and took me in his arms, bridal style. Then, his lips were against mine. It was more passionate, but not in a super hot, steamy and sexy way. I felt huge amounts of joy swelled up in my chest, and I let it out in the kiss. I wrapped my arms around his neck, sat up straight, and deepened the kiss best I could. My tongue lightly brushed his bottom lip, and he nipped at mine. We were moving up and down, totally in sync with each other. It felt so good to finally love someone who actually loved you back. I loved this feeling, and hoped it would never go away. My tongue entered his mouth slightly, only to meet his. They brushed each other slightly. But, all too soon it seemed, it was over, because we had to breathe. We looked at each other with love, and he kissed my cheek and said
"I love you, Raven. I always will. No matter what we encounter, I will always stand by you, love you, and be with you, even when we fight." I giggled.
"Gee Gar, these sound like our wedding vows already." I hugged him tight.
"I never want this to end." He whispered in my ear.
"Me either. And it never will." I could sense huge amounts of happiness coming from him. After that, we sat in comfortable silence. He had sat down, me on his lap. All was quiet, until:
"Well…. That was… quite a show." said Robin, clearing his throat. We both whipped our heads around in shock.
"Ahhh…. Hey, guys…." Was all he could say. I couldn't say anything. They were both smiling.
"About time!" Exclaimed Cyborg. Loudly. "But, we do need to have a little…. Chat, if you will, with BB."
"Hurt him, I hurt you." Was all I said. They nodded. Gar went with them. I could hear them through the wall.
"We're so glad for you, Beast Boy." Started Robin.
"But," said Cy, "If you hurt her, you will have a price to pay. She is my little sister, and if you hurt her, pain will come, even if you are my best friend." I could hear him gulp.
"She's my sister. I will use you as my punching bag if you hurt her." Threatened Robin. He gulped again.
"Guys…. I would never do anything to hurt her. I love her, so much. I can't even begin to explain the vastness of my undying love for her."
"Woah, alright, word taken." Said Robin.
"Yeah, enough with the mushy stuff!" And with that, they laughed, and BB enetered Ravens room.
"So… you heard all of that…. right?" he questioned me.
"Of course. I love you." I walked up to him, and kissed him quickly (A/N: Is that a word? Sorry, I'm really tired) and gently on the lips. They giggled.
"So, Gar…." I started, tracing his chest, "wanna go get some pajamas and join me in my room?" He was wide-eyed and mouth agape, so I corrected myself. "Just for sleep! Not anything else. Not yet." He immediately relaxed.
"Yeah, Rae. Be back quick." He gave her a quick kiss on the cheek. I am so glad he isn't one of those boys who is just in the relationship for… 'doin the nasty' as Cyborg would put it. He's perfect. Within two minutes, he was back, in green and blue pajama pants, on shirt.
"Is it okay if I sleep without a shirt on?" I giggled and nodded.
"Of course. I'm going to go get my pajamas on… in the bathroom." (A/N: In my mind, they have small bathrooms of their own in their rooms.) She changed into her dark blue yoga shorts and black- purplish tank top.
"Wow, Rae, you look beautiful."
"I'm in pajamas." She said flatly.
"Yeah, but I still think you're beautiful. You always look beautiful in my eyes." I blushed.
"Well, Mr. Romance, lets just go to bed." I said teasingly. He agreed. And with that, we curled up together, and drifted off into a soundless sleep, completely contempt.
Well, how was that? I thought it was pretty good for my first! But, yeah, that's the end of the story, and I'm kind of sad about it. But, oh well, more are to come! Thanks for sticking with me through this! Hugs, laughs, tickles, kisses and lots of love, Angel-of-Energy
