Chapter 1: Robin's Surprise

I kept running through the woods, not daring to look behind me. I tripped over a rock and landed on my back. I hissed as pain stretched up my leg.

All of a sudden, I woke up, panting and sweating. It was just a dream, I thought, relieved.

The clock on my drawer glowed 10:00 a.m. Cyborg should be preparing breakfast right about now. I jumped down from my top bunk bed and got dressed.

It was a Saturday, so all I wore was a black tank top, (boxers, of course), and purple shorts. I left my room on my way to the main room, and as I passed by Raven's dorm, she stepped out.

"Morning Raven," I greeted her. "Good morning, Beast Boy," she responded in that unemotional monotone voice she always used. "Did you sleep well?" When she asked that, I immediately remember my nightmare and shivered.

To her I smiled and said, "Yep. You?" I could tell she didn't believe me, and to my relief, she didn't push it. "I slept well." She yawned and asked me, "Mind walking with me to breakfast?" "Not at all. Let's go!"

We walked side by side to the main room where the rest of the titans would be. Then I stepped into the main room and said, "Morning dudes!"

"Yo BB! Eat your breakfast quick, I want to play you a couple rounds on the game station."

"You're on Cy!" I accepted his challenge.

"Good morning friend. I hope that you slept well," I heard Starfire greet me.

"Morning Star. And yes, I did," I answered her cheerfully with a smile on my face.

"Well that's good, because I have a surprise for you guys," Robin surprised us, as he appeared from behind me and Raven. "We're going on vacation!"

"That is most wonderful," Starfire said excitedly.

"Booyah," Cyborg yelled.

Raven stayed silent as I asked Robin, "That's strange. You usually don't let us go on vacation, and by usually I mean never."

Robin turned to me and said, "It's been pretty quiet lately. And this will be individual vacations. You guys can go wherever you want."

"Excellent! Perhaps I can visit my home planet," Starfire clapped her hands excitedly.

"It's been awhile since I last saw Azarath," Raven said matter-of-factly.

"That's cool. Maybe I'll head to Hawaii," Cyborg suggested.

"Kid Flash is coming to vacation here, so I'm staying here as well. Someone has to keep an eye on him," Robin informed us.

I frowned when Robin said that. Recently I had questioned my orientation and found out that I was gay. I also found out that I had developed a crush on the Boy Wonder. I had hoped that maybe, just maybe, we could have gone on vacation together. Just the two of us.

After breakfast, everybody went to their rooms to prepare for their individual vacations. I had decided to get some advice from Raven.

I knocked on Raven's door and waited for her to open it. She appeared with that usual expressionless face of hers and said, "What do you want? I'm busy packing."

"Can I come in? I need your advice." At the sound of desperation in my voice, she let me in. I walked in, sat on her bed, and let out a deep, sad sigh.

"What's wrong Beast Boy?" There was genuine concern in her voice.

I looked away and mumbled, "I'm gay."

"Speak up, I can't hear you."

I looked at her, blushed, and said more clearly, "I said I'm gay."

She sat next to me and said, "So?"

"You took that well. Anyway, I kindasort maybe mighthave a crush on Robin."

Her eyes widened and she said, "Seriously?"

I nodded and said, "Yeah. So I'm going to stay here for my vacation. I want to know what he thinks of me. I want to know if he feels the same way."

"Well, don't do anything stupid, or something that might creep him out or scare him off. I suggest you just talk to him and ask him straightforward. So…good luck with that…I guess.

I stood up and as I got ready to leave, I hugged her and said, "Raven…thank you for taking it so well. And for giving me advice."

"No problem," she responded, as she hugged me back tightly.
