Dinosaurs and Heroes
Two of my favourite shows together. Unfortunately I don't own Dinosaur King or Teen Titans. Pairings= Kole + Jericho, Rex + Zoe, Raven + Beastboy
"Morning Ace," Rex said as his little dinosaur nudged him awake. Rex sat up and rubbed the sleep out of his eyes. Again, Ace nudged his hand.
"What is it Ace?" Rex asked. Ace walked over to the dresser and knocked a picture frame on to Rex's lap. Rex looked at it. It was a picture of Max, Rex, Zoe, Rod, Laura, Chomp, Ace, Paris, Terry, Spiny and Tank. Ace tapped on the picture with his foot.
"What about the picture Ace?" Rex asked. "We are going to see them today."
Ace shook his head and then looked around. Finally, he spotted Rex's tooth necklace. Picking it up, Ace used it to point at the picture. The direction was at Zoe.
"What about Zoe?" Rex asked. Ace growled. This was getting frustrating. Again he looked around. Then he jumped off the bed and walked over to the bookcase, where he pulled out a dinosaur book. Using his nose, Ace flipped through the pages until he had found what he wanted. Then he walked back to Rex. Ace pulled him out of bed and dragged him over to the book. Then Ace walked back and picked up the picture and the necklace. Again, Ace pointed the tooth in the direction of Zoe and the tapped on the book. Finally Rex understood.
"Are you trying to tell me that I should tell Zoe that I'm in love with her?" Rex asked. Ace nodded and then turned the page, showing a picture of a dinosaur with eggs in a nest.
Rex sighed. "It's not that easy, Ace. Humans are very different from dinosaurs. Besides, it appears that she likes Max."
Ace turned the page again. This one had two dinosaurs fighting each other for a female. Rex laughed. "I'm not going to fight Max over Zoe. Come on, let's have some breakfast.
Zoe stared at the TV with a dreamy look on her face. Paris, who was lying on her lap, was asleep. Reece walked in and looked at her sister.
"Zoe," Reece said calmly. "You do realise that one day you have to stop swooning over movie stars and tell Rex how you feel." That snapped Zoe out of her head.
"It's not easy Reece," Zoe said sadly. "Besides, he's probably not interested." Reece shook her head and sighed. She really wished that Zoe would find happiness with Rex like she had with Zander.
At Titans South Tower
Jericho sat on the chair in the living room, calmly strumming "Foolish Games" on his guitar as he listened Argent argue with Herald.
"Sorry Trumpet Boy," Argent said. "Next time I want to go on a date with Hot Spot, I'll ask your permission first."
"No need to," Herald shot back. "I'll just open a portal and stick the two of you in another dimension so I don't have to see you two kiss each other."
Wildebeest walked in and looked at Herald and Argent fight. He looked at Jericho and then went over and sat with him.
Wildebeest tapped him on the shoulder. Jericho looked up. Wildebeest then pointed to himself, then his hands and then at Jericho.
Jericho nodded. He had been teaching Wildebeest sign language so he could communicate with the rest of the team.
After he put his guitar down, he turned to Wildebeest.
What's up? Jericho asked.
Are you ok? Wildebeest asked. Ever since Hotspot and Argent got together, you've been acting all distant. Is something wrong?
I guess I'm a little jealous, Jericho answered.
Do you like Argent? Wildebeest had a very surprised look on his face.
Jericho smiled No. She's cute and all but she's not my type. I'm jealous at their relationship.
Do you like one of the other Titan girls? Wildebeest asked. Jericho nodded. Can I guess who it is? Again Jericho nodded.
No, she's a little too bold for me. Besides, Red Star has his eyes on her.
Herald's got her. She's a little sassy for my taste and I couldn't do that to Herald.
Robin will murder me if I even look at her, let alone date her.
Beastboy's one of my best friends and he loves Raven. I can't do that to him.
Kid Flash's got her. Besides she like Argent with fashion, it's scary.
Well, the last two I can think of is Melvin and Kole.
Melvin's eight. I'm not after her. And even if I was, Raven will kill me if I hurt her. Beastboy told me that she's scary when she's angry.
Then that leaves Kole. You like Kole?
Jericho shook his head. I don't like her. I'm in love with her.
Shouldn't you tell her?
Lightning has already got his hands on her. How can I?
I believe the expression is 'How do you know unless you try?'
"Enough!" Jericho and Wildebeest turned to see Hotspot glaring at Argent and Herald. "Enough arguing. Herald, if you have a problem with me and Argent together, just ignore it. We won't do affection things if you're around. Happy?"
"Good," Hotspot smiled. "Now let's have some breakfast. I'm cooking."
Wildebeest got up and patted Jericho's head. Don't worry, he signed. Something might happen. You never know. Then he walked towards the kitchen, leaving Jericho alone with his thoughts. He really hoped that Wildebeest was right.
At Titans North
Kole sat on the couch, staring into space. Lightning walked into the room and kissed her on the cheek but she didn't notice.
"Kole," Lightning said. Kole looked at him. "I have to talk to you about something."
'There's something I have to say too," she said.
"You go first," Lightning said.
"Ok," Kole said. She took a deep breath and started to talk. "Lightning, I like you. You're cute and very sweet but we don't have a connection. I'm sorry and I hope we can still be friends."
"Oh," Lightning said. "That's what I wanted to talk to you about. I do like you but like you said, I don't feel a connection between us. I'm quite happy to remain as friends."
Kole nodded. "Do you feel like you have a connection with someone else?"
Lightning nodded. "I just didn't know how to tell you. Her name is Mist. She creates clouds and fog."
"She sounds lovely," Kole said. "I would like to meet her."
Lightning smiled. "Okay, I'll bring her over one day. What about you? Who do you feel a connection with?"
Again Lightning nodded. "I'm very happy for you and I wish you luck in the future."
"Likewise," Kole smiled. They gave each other a hug and then Lightning left the room. Kole instantly felt lighter. Now all I have to do is tell Jericho how I feel, she thought. I hope he feels the same way.
At Titans Tower
In Raven's room
Raven sat on her bed, reading. She was so absorbed in her book that she didn't hear someone knocking on her door.
"Rae?" A voice called out. Raven screamed. Sighing, she got up and opened her door. It was Beastboy holding a tray.
"What do you want, Beastboy?" Raven asked.
"Morning Rae," Beastboy said. "Sorry if I startled you. Cy made waffles this morning and you weren't down so I saved you some and made you some herbal tea." He held out the tray. Raven's stomach growled.
"Thanks Beastboy," she said as she took the tray. Beastboy nodded and then started to walk away. Raven closed her door and started to drink her tea. Then she noticed it was her favourite tea in her favourite cup. Softly, she smiled.
"Thank you Beastboy."
In the kitchen
Back in the kitchen, Beastboy picked at his tofu eggs. Robin and Cyborg were staring at him.
"What?" Beastboy asked.
"How did it go?" Both boys said.
"Fine." was the answer.
"What did she do?" Cyborg asked.
"She took it, thanked me and then I walked away," Beastboy answered.
"Come on Beastboy," Robin said. "You have to tell her how you feel."
"Says the leader who took two years to tell Star that he loves her," Beastboy shot back at him.
"Good morning friend Beastboy and friend Cyborg," Starfire called out cheerfully as she flew through the door. "Good morning boyfriend Robin," she said as she kissed his cheek. Robin blushed as Cyborg laughed.
"You know, Rob, Beastboy has got a point. It did take you two years to tell Starfire how you felt about her," he pointed out.
"Cy, this isn't about me and Star. This is about Beastboy and Raven," Robin said.
"Does friend Beastboy have the feelings of affection towards friend Raven?" Starfire squealed. "Glorious! I will go tell her the good news."
"NO!" Beastboy shrieked. Quickly, he turned in to an octopus and grabbed Starfire. After he dragged her away from the door, he changed back.
"Star, please you can't," Beastboy begged. "She's still heartbroken from that dragon jerk. And what is she doesn't like me back? It would totally wreck our friendship. I'm begging you Star, don't tell her!"
"But..." Starfire started to say but Beastboy beat her to the punch, giving her the "Face". Starfire groaned. No one could resist the face.
"Okay, I will not tell her," Starfire sighed.
"Thanks Star," Beastboy said as he gave her a hug. "I'm going to see if Aqualad's up for a race. Later."
After he had left, Cyborg looked at Robin and Starfire. "Something has to be done about those two."
"Yeah but what?" Robin asked.
Outside the tower, Beastboy turned into a dolphin and jumped off into the ocean, without noticing that he had cracked an egg open and kicked a card into the ocean. There was a brief flash and a baryonyx appeared and swam away.
Outside of the Titans South tower, Wildebeest went for a run, kicking an egg open. There was a brief flash and an iguanodon appeared and disappeared into the forest.
Outside of the Titans North tower, Red Star was practising hitting targets. He hit an egg, cracking it open. Softly the wind started blowing. There was a brief flash and a velociraptor appeared and then disappeared in the snow.
