I'm just so excited about my new laptop I can't seem to stop typing! Ok so here's my first BB/Rae fic. I love this pairing way better than any other pairing; they are just so cute together! This will be a series of one shots, and I might sprinkle in a few Rob/Stars here and there if I think of any. Just so you all know, I hate Terra with a passion. So there will be Terra bashing. I warn you now. :)
Disclaimer: I don't own Teen Titans. If I did, things would have been wayyyy different. I also don't own Klondike Bars.
The heat was stifling in the tower. Even with AC, fans, and open windows, the Titans all felt as if they were in a sauna in the middle of the Sahara Desert in July. Jump City was experiencing a record breaking heat wave, with temperatures up to 107 degrees. Everyone was suffering; dogs in the street were panting, asphalt was melting, even the criminals seemed to have given up their illegal activities to try and find some way to cool off.
Inside the tower, a certain green changeling was sprawled out on the couch upside down, so that his head was almost touching the floor and his feet were high in the air. His tongue lolled out and his eyes were closed. On the other side of the couch sat Raven, a book sitting in her lap. She hadn't flipped the page in a good 10 minutes; the heat was making it too hard for her to concentrate on the small print. Robin and Starfire had gone out to a water park (after much persuading on Starfire's part), and Cyborg was in his room doing his best to keep his mechanical parts from overheating.
Eventually, Beast Boy got bored of just sitting on a couch, letting the blood flow to his head. Opening his eyes, he slowly turned his head to see Raven staring blankly at a page in her thick book.
"Raven…" he moaned. She didn't look at him.
"What," she answered, her annoyance clear. He should not be bothering her on the hottest day of the summer.
"It's…hot…" he whined. Her eyes snapped to his, violet locked on emerald.
"Thank you, Captain Obvious," she monotoned. He sighed loudly.
"You know what I could really go for right now?" he closed his eyes again. Raven didn't respond, so he continued. "A Klondike Bar. An ice cold, frosty, Klondike Bar." He smacked his lips as he imagined the cool treat in his mouth. Raven rolled her eyes, and muttered something. Beast Boy's enhanced hearing allowed him to catch it.
"What would you do for a Klondike Bar?"
"That's a tremendous question Rae!" he smiled as he shot up from his position on the couch. Instantly, he felt light headed as black spots clouded his vision. Therefore, he didn't notice her glare at the mention of his nickname for her. "What would I do for a Klondike Bar?" he repeated, rubbing an imaginary beard. "Right now? I would tell my inner most darkest deepest secret." He nodded in approval of his bargain. At that precise moment, Robin burst into the room laden with shopping bags.
"Hello friends!" Starfire's cheery voice greeted the overheated teens. "We have returned from the most amusing park of waters. And, as a bonus, we have stopped by to get the frozen treats! I believe they are called 'Klondike Bars', and Robin said Beast Boy is most infatuated with them." She rummaged through one of the plastic bags and flourished a package of mint chocolate chip Klondike Bars. Beast Boy's mouth dropped in shock as Raven smiled slightly. Oh, this would be good.
"What was that you were saying Beast Boy? Something about spilling your deepest darkest secret?" she suppressed a chuckle at his wide-eyed reaction.
"Uh….I…well…uh…" he stuttered, rubbing the back of his neck. "I was kidding…"
"Well, do you want one or not? Because if you do, you've got to spill it," she said seriously. His eyes frantically searched the room as if some solution would pop up out of nowhere.
"I'll make you a deal," he sputtered after a few seconds. Raven raised an eyebrow. "You know it's impossible to eat one of these without getting it all over your face right?" he asked. She just looked at him, so he took it as a signal to continue. "Well, if you can eat it without making a mess, I'll tell you my deepest secret," he smiled at his bet. There was no way she could do it. She cocked her head.
"Interesting," she said. He knew he had to seal the deal somehow.
"But, if I can eat one without making a mess, you have to tell me yours," he added smugly. She just closed the book in her lap, and nodded.
"I hope you're ready to pour your heart out Beast Boy," she teased. His grin took up his whole face as he raced to the kitchen to get two Klondike Bars. Tossing one to her, he took his mark on the couch as she calmly waited for his go signal.
"On your mark…get set…GO!" he shouted as he savagely unwrapped his treat. He didn't even stop to taste the ice cream as he took his first bite. He chewed quickly and prepared to take another bite, before noticing the flaw in his strategy. With every large bite he took, more ice cream began spilling out the sides of the cracked chocolate shell. Noticing a stray drop of ice cream about to drip from the wrapper, he quickly licked it and thought to himself uh oh.
Raven carefully unwrapped her Klondike Bar as she saw Beast Boy tear into his. She knew she had this in the bag as he dug into the frozen treat. As he ate the Bar without mercy, it began to melt in his hands, and drip down his wrists. Before long, his mouth was completely covered in the light green ice cream, a few stray drops clinging to his nose. It was hard to see the difference between his skin and the ice cream, but if you looked hard enough, you could see he had clearly failed the task. With a smirk, she continued to take small, precise bites of her bar, using the wrapper to catch any drips. Beast Boy watched her nervously, praying for one, just one drop to fall to the floor, smear on her cheek, anything. But alas, after she took her last bite, her face was smear-free. He looked down at his sticky hands and licked his ice cream covered lips before groaning in defeat.
"I win," she said. "Now spill. What's you're greatest secret?" he nervously twiddled his fingers before coming up with the perfect plan. If she wanted to know his secret, fine. With a dramatic sigh, he rose from the couch, and sauntered over to her side. She raised an eyebrow in suspicion, but took the hand he offered to her. As soon as she stood up, his lips were on hers. She tasted the lingering mint ice cream, and felt her own lips become sticky with the substance. Surprise still immobilized her, but her eyes closed after a few seconds, and her arms wrapped around his neck. They continued to kiss until someone cleared their throat, obviously in an awkward manor. The pair jumped away from each other, and a lamp next to Raven was encased in black magic before it exploded. Her cheeks were flushed, but before she could pull up her hood, Beast Boy's hand prevented her from hiding her face.
"Your face has ice cream on it, which means you lose too," his eyebrows wiggled. "So, what's your biggest secret?" Raven gaped like a fish out of water, and threw a helpless look to Robin and Starfire. The first just looked on with (what she assumed were) wide eyes, while the latter was jumping up and down in glee. She looked back to the emerald eyes before making her decision. She grabbed his shirt, and pulled him in for another kiss. He happily responded by wrapping his arms around her waist and kissing back, tasting the mint and tea flavor that was currently Raven. Even when a window shattered, the pair continued their make-out session, before they finally needed to break apart for air. Beast Boy looked at the purple-haired teen with a goofy grin on his face. "Looks like we have the same secret."
"Tell anyone, and I'll kill you," she growled.
"I don't have to. They already know," he smiled wider, nodding towards the blur Raven could only assume was Starfire heading out the door. She groaned, but Beast Boy tightened his grip around her waist. "Some secrets are better when publicized."
"We'll see," she said before he swooped back in to capture her lips in another kiss.
"Um…" Robin's voice brought them back to the living room. Raven's blush deepened as the leader looked from her to Beast Boy. He sighed, and then turned to leave. "I guess I'll leave you two alone then." He mumbled.
"You're a mind reader dude! I was just about to suggest that!" Beast Boy called out to the retreating traffic light. Raven allowed a smile to appear on her face as Beast Boy looked down at her. He had grown quite tall over the years, making her the smallest of the team. "So…does this mean…you'll go out with me?" he asked hopefully.
"I would for a Klondike Bar," she said mischievously. He laughed, and then bent down to kiss her again.
It's summer, so Klondike Bars seem appropriate. Hope you like it, I'll update soon! Please review guys! I'll give you a Klondike Bar! :)
