"Okay Raven- push!" Cyborg ordered. Raven pushed, screaming in pain.
"God! This fucking hurts!" Raven cried, her face showing extreme agony.
"Rae, I can see her head." Cyborg told her, looking Raven in the eyes.
"Oh God... She's coming fast!" Raven gasped. Cyborg nodded.
"Okay, I need you to push as hard as you can okay?" Cyborg asked.
Raven nodded, pushing with all of her might.
"Whoa!" Cyborg yelped, now holding a screaming Alexus.
"Oh God- is she okay?" Raven asked, concerned.
"Yeah. She's perfect." Cyborg said, cutting her umbelical cord.
"Stay with me Rae." Cyborg said, cleaning up Alexus.
Less then a minute after her birth, Alexus Rose Logan was wrapped in a blanket, and layed on her mothers chest.
"Hey baby. Hey baby girl. I'm your mommy." Raven said, as she started crying.
"I'm so sorry I won't be with you when you grow up. I wish I could though." Raven sobbed.
Silently, Raven layed down, eyes drooping to a close.
Alexus still held firmly in her arms.
Cyborg sighed, fighting back his tears. He picked up Alexus from Raven's arms, and carried her upstairs.
"Oh my God! She's beautiful!" Esme cried, her and Jayda looking at their new baby sister.
Only the adults noticed Cyborg's saddness.
"Can I see my daughter?" Garfield asked, walking towards his best friend.
"Yeah. Here she is." Cyborg said, handing the infant over to her dad.
"Has Rae held her?" He asked. Cyborg nodded.
"I'm gonna check on my mom." Jayda said, leaving the room.
As soon as she did, Starfire began crying.
"Mom? Mom what's wrong? Is everything okay?" Brandyn asked.
Starfire shook her head no, a hand over her mouth.
"Raven died giving birth to Alexus..." Cyborg frowned.
"Why didn't you tell Jayda! Why didn't you stop her?" Esme yelled.
"She knew! She knew she was going to die!" Starfire sobbed.
"We tried to get her to tell Jayda, but she wouldn't- she couldn't!" Starfire wailed.
Jinx started crying, though not as loud as Starfire.
Wally pulled his wife in for a hug, allowing the sorceress to sob into his chest.
Brandyn slowly walked down to the infermary.
He saw Jayda laying beside her mother, her back facing him.
"Jayda?" He asked, making sure she was okay.
"Unless you know how to bring my mom back, I don't wanna hear it." Jayda hissed.
Okay, so she wasn't fine...
"Jayda, I'm really sorry about your mom." Brandyn said to his girlfriend.
"She always told me I was the reason we moved back to Jump..." Jayda sighed.
"I guess this is what she meant. Brandyn?" Jayda asked, sitting up and facing him.
"Yeah Jay?" He asked, walking towards her.
"Did she know she was going to die?" SHe asked, tears filling up her eyes.
"I... I don't know..." Brandyn sighed, lying to her.
"Okay..." Jayda said, getting up, whiping her palms on her pant legs.
She turned around, kissed Raven on the cheek, and pulled the blanket over her.
Two days. Alexus was now two days old, and Raven had been dead for two days.
It was now time for her funeral.
"Uh, Jayda? How would you like us to bury your mother?" Beast Boy asked his daughter.
"We're not; I'm taking her back to Azarath tomorrow morning." Jayda said, sitting on the couch.
For the past two days, Brandyn had been the one taking care of Scarlette- not Jayda.
"Oh. Okay. Want any of us to go with you?" Cyborg asked.
"No. I'll be gone for a few days. No more then a week." She explained, going to her room to pack.
Brandyn sighed from the couch, bottle feeding Scarlette, while Jinx fed Alexus.
Jayda took her book bag, and completely emptied it.
She packed ten days worth of clothes, pajamas, underwear and socks.
She grabbed her art bag, and put in all three of her sketch books, her song book, and her poems.
She grabbed all her pictures of her mom, her dad, Esme, Calvin, Pheonix, Lexi, and Brandyn.
And also the photos of Jinx, Flash, Bumble Bee, Cyborg, Nightwing, and Starfire.
And Scarlette, Xander, and Alexus. After an hour, she was fully 100% packed.
She sighed, looking out her bedroom window at the moon.
She grabbed a piece of paper and pencil, sat down at her desk, and began to write.
It was seven in the morning.
Jayda and Raven were ready to go back to Azarath.
"Bye guys." Jayda said, smiling, waving goodbye.
Though her smile was fake...
She hugged everyone goodbye, kissing Brandyn and Scarlette.
"Sure you don't need any help?" Calvin asked. Jayda nodded.
"Bye baby sis. Don't be a handful for dad ok?" Jayda said, talking to Alexus.
"We'll see you in a week, okay?" Nightwing said. Jayda nodded.
Jayda and Raven went through the portal to Azarath, leaving Titans Tower.
The next day, Esme entered her older sister's room, needing a pen.
"C'mon! She always has pens!" Esme groaned, searching the desk.
She noticed a folded up piece of paper.
Being nosy, she grabbed it, unfolding it, reading it's contents.
Her eyes widened at what it said.
"Nightwing! Nightwing!" She screamed, running out of the room with the paper.
"What?" He asked, as she ran up to him in the common room, where everyone else was.
She handed him the paper, panting hard.
"Found this... In Jayda's... Room." She panted, trying to catch her breath.
Nightwing read it, swearing under his breath as he slammed it down onto the table.
"What's wrong?" Lexi asked.
"She's not coming back..." He ighed, shaking his head.
"What?" Brandyn cried, grabbing the paper.
When I leave, it'll be the last time you see me.
I'll see you, but you won't know I'm there.
It's for the best... Scarlette doesn't need me as a mother.
Besides, I'll just end up killing everyone when Trigon comes.
Don't bother looking for me in Azarath. By the time you find this, I'll be gone.
I love you guys so much, and I'm sorry for doing this.
But not enough to stay...
