A/N: Hey guys! New Chapter! It's been so long. I really got stuck in a rutt for this story and I'm slowly digging my way out.

Anyways, enjoy!


Chapter Eight:

Terra pushed Beast Boy away when she heard Robin scream from the roof. "What was that?"

"I'm sure it was nothing. He's probably just training." Beast Boy said as he tried to press his lips back against hers. Terra turned her head away.

"Beast Boy, seriously." The blonde pushed his shoulders and made enough room for her to squeeze out. "I'm gonna go check it out."

The green boy sighed and his ears flattened out. "Fine.."

The two ran down the hall until they ran into a hysterical Starfire.

"It is the horribleness, friends! I was just on my ay to get you." Tears fell like globs out of her eyes. "Our leader has been...how do you say..beaten senseless?"

"By who?" Beast Boy asked.

"Slade." Terra felt her hairs stand on ends at the mention of his name.

"Slade is here?"

"Was here? He said he wanted to "make an example" and that he would be "back for his prize" but we do not have any trophy to give him!" She started sobbing harder.

"It's gonna be okay Star. Where is everyone?" Terra patted her on the back.

"They are in...Raven is working her magic and Cyborg he went to clean the roof.." Starfire sniffed deeply and the trio headed to check on Robin.

When they walked in the room, they saw Raven with her hands cloaked in black hovering over Robin's unconscious form. Starfire went to the other side of the bed and watched him, affection evident in her gaze. The other two stood near Raven's side. Her hand was over his abdomen, where they could see a loarge blood stain on his clothing, but a clean closing wound that continued with Raven's help. When the wound was closed completely, Raven groaned and the black orb dissappeared from her hands and dragged a chair right behind her that she collapsed into.

"Raven, are you okay?" Beast Boy asked kneeling next to her.

"I'm fine.." She replied. "I just need to be careful not to overexert myself."

"Will he be okay?" Starfire piped up.

"Yes, he should be okay in just a few days. I healed all of his major problems. I can't heal his pride though."

'Where is his pride and how can it be healed as you say?" Starfire asked in a rush. She flew above the boy wonder looking him up and down.

"Star, pride isn't physical. There's nothing we can do." She looked hurt by the blue haired girls words and sat on the edge of the bed taking Robin's hand in her own.

"So, what now?" Beast Boy asked to break the awkward silence.

"We have to figure out what prize Slade wants." Terra crossed her arms and blew a strand of hair out of her face.

"It's me." Raven said softly.

"What?" Beast Boy said loudly. He looked away trying to hide his sudden concern. Slade wanting Raven? For what reason?

"I don't know why, but he told me he wanted me when I had brought Terra back.."

"And you didn't tell anyone?" Cyborg made the other four jump as he came into the room. "Ray, why didn't you let us know?"

The half-demon looked at the ground and twiddled her thumbs together ignoring the stares she was getting.

"Raven, friend. Why did you not let us know?" Starfire asked more softly.

"I couldn't.."

"What do you mean you couldn't?" Terra asked.

"Wait, weren't you in her head at this time anyways?" Beast Boy asked pointing at her. "Why didn't you tell us?"

"I hadn't been woken up at this point, I had no idea." Terra said.

"Well then why didn't you tell us?" Beast Boy said angrily. "Don't you think something like that should be told to the team? Don't you?!"

"Maybe all of you were so wrapped up in getting Blondie back, she felt...insignificant to your cares." All eyes turned to the voice. In the far bed, Beast sat up rolling his shoulders with a small smirk. "Surprise."

The room was quiet as he slowly stood up. Raven seemed frozen in place, Beast Boy seemed in shock, Terra and Starfire glared at him yet looked him up and down, and Cyborg aimed his cannon at his chest.

"Keep your butt on that bed, dude. Or you won't have one anymore." He said slowly. Beast just crossed his knee over his other leg.

"What? I can't be involved in the conversation." He looked at Raven and smiled. "Hey, sweetheart. Miss me?"

Raven looked away from him and slowly covered her neck subconsciously.

"Shut up." Terra spat.

"Shut up? If it weren't for me, you'd still be locked up in her dark, creepy head." Beast stood slowly, holding his hands up for Cyborg to see. "Days in bed, the least you can do is let me stand up."

"The least we can do? Are you kidding?" Beast Boy growled. "What are you doing here?"

"What? A guy can't want to be free?"

"Not if that guy is just me, in a different guy form, but still technically the same guy...guy." Beast Boy scratched his head having confused himself. Best just chuckled.

"You and I may look alike, but we have never been the same guy. Think of it as more..twins." He looked at himself in the mirror and ran a hand through his hair. "And I'm obviously the better looking one."

"Why you?!" Terra had to hold Beast Boy's frame back as he lunged at the taller changeling.

"Cyborg, how bout you hook me up and tell them the difference between us? I doubt you did a DNA test after we split am I right?" He sat back on the bed.

"I..No, I didn't." Cyborg lowered his cannon and looked at Beast Boy. "Give me one of your hairs will ya?"

"I don't see why I have to." He grumbled. Terra plucked one really quick and handed it to the other Titan, then Beast did the same from himself. Cyborg walked over to his computer and dropped the two hairs into separated containers. The computer buzzed and beeped filling up the silence in the room. Beast Boy grumbled, "This is ridiculous, there's no way he's his own person."

The computer beeped loudly several times, then showed the image of the hairs and a list of information pertaining to them. Everyone stayed silent as Cyborg read them. "I don't believe it."

"It's like I said, we're like twins." Beast smiled at Beast Boy.

"Exactly, but how.." Cyborg typed away engrossed in his new discovery.

"Oh, I can tell you that also." Beast smiled. "Remember when I first came about, after that chemical issue. Well, when that occurred it awakened genes in this fellow that weren't meant to be there. The spill didn't make him aggressive or anything, no...it made the recessive twin gene his mother had grow. I was there, new to the powers we both share and I had no way to control anything. I had to experience life in two seconds. I'm sure you can understand what that can do to someone. I had a mind of my own, and you all taught him how to shut it out. So, I started plotting, thinking about how I could get out on my own. And, I did it. All I had to do was use some of that emotional magic the Empath gives off and manipulate it for my own good."

"You learned to manipulate my powers?" Raven spat. Her eyes clashed with the Beasts before she looked away in fear. His eyes were hungry. Beast Boy found himself stepping between the two.

"It wasn't all that hard, sweet cheeks. They are fueled by your emotions after all, so I just had to discover what got you all worked up." Beast chuckled as he motioned toward Beast Boy and Terra. "As if that isn't obvious."

"Shut your mouth." Raven said standing up angrily.

"See, just one gesture towards-"

"Shut up! Shut up!"

"And you can hardly control-"


"Wonderful temper of yours. You really are a mess."

"SHUT UUUUUPPPP!" Raven's eyes turned black as she launched magic at Beast to fling him across the room. He held out his hand and seemed to catch it in mid-air. He then aimed it at Beast Boy, knocking the small teen off of his feet. He then lunged across the room, jumping over the bed, and latched Raven's arms in one of his hands and putting the other hand against her throat, it taken the shape of a claw. He smirked looking at the two other frozen Titans.

"Now, see there. Like I said, not too hard." He chuckled as Raven struggled against his hands, her power vibrating with fear. "The feeling of your fear is delicious. Just know the more you put out, the more I take. Ha, you're basically my magic whore."

"Shut your fucking mouth." Terra spat angrily raising small rocks she kept in a pouch on her belt. Raven stopped struggling, and there was defeat in her eyes.

"Terra, it's not worth it." She said softly.

"Now, here's what is going to happen. Rae and I are gonna take a trip, and you all are not going to come looking for us. If you do, I will not hesitate to kill her. Understood?" Beast Boy groaned from the corner and stood scratching his head. Raven looked at him pleadingly.

"Beast Boy, I have to tell you something. I-" She could feel her heart pounding and tried to control her powers.

"I did it all for you, Beast Boy. I did it so you can be happy. So you could have Terra back." Her powers began to spiral, but she'd already began and couldn't hold it back anymore. "I did it because I love y-"

Suddenly, she felt herself jerked through the air as Beast took control of her powers and the two of the phased out of the building. When they halted, she hit the ground hard slamming her head against something cold and concrete. The world blurred before her, and she felt arms lifting her up. She wished deeply that she could slip away into the darkness looming ahead and never wake up.
