Robin, Cyborg, and Starfire watched this new argument between Beast Boy and Raven with a mixture of horror and fascination. Raven and Beast Boy had always had their disagreements but this one was getting more heated than usual. Robin's face was pale, and he pulled at his collar, as the room seemed to have become uncomfortably warm. Starfire held her hand to her mouth and looked terribly concerned. Cyborg fussed with his bionic hands awkwardly, unsure if he should stop the argument or flee the room.
"You're unbelievable Raven!" Beast Boy shouted. "You just have to criticize everything I do!" his hands were flailing about in frustration.
"Well, Beast Boy," Raven began, her voice was raised but not to the point of shouting, "Maybe if you didn't dedicate your life to pestering me at every possible moment, I would spend less time reminding you of your extensive amount of flaws."
"Oh that's really funny Raven!"
"Funnier than you'll ever be."
"Well at least I don't spend all my time shut off from the world hiding behind a book!"
"Yes Beast Boy, because dedicating my life to videogames is a much more worthwhile use of my time." her words dripped with sarcasm.
"Damn that Raven, she's always one step ahead of me," Thought Beast Boy his fists clenching at his sides.
No one in the Tower was exactly sure how the argument started, maybe not even Raven and Beast Boy. But the argument had definitely escalated to the point where the rest of the team could only sit back and watch.
"God Raven, do you enjoy making me miserable!"
"Funny, I could say the same thing to you" Raven replied in her signature monotone.
Beast Boy shot her a dangerous look. Raven's features remained stoically impassive, but on the inside she was just as emotionally involved in this as Beast Boy.
"Well at least I'm not creepy!" Beast Boy yelled.
"Says the guy with green skin, pointy ears and fangs." Raven shot back
"Take. That. Back." Beast Boy growled through clenched teeth.
Raven gave Beast Boy a smug look, she knew she hit a nerve and she was going to keep pushing.
"For someone who acts like a ladies' man all the time, you sure don't have a lot girlfriends." Beast boy's face was getting red. "What's wrong? Ladies don't dig the troll look"
Beast Boy just stood there fuming, and the tension in the room could be cut with a knife. The other Titans realized that this was their cue to leave.
"Uh, Raven, Beast Boy?" Robin asked, the arguing teammates turning their heads, shooting the leader a venomous look. "The rest of us are, uh, getting food"
"Fine!" They both shouted in unison.
The rest of the Titans couldn't wait to get out of the room, almost tripping over each other running out of the room.
Once the others had left, Beast Boy and Raven looked back at each other glaring. Suddenly, faster than anyone could believe possible, the two Titans suddenly were in each other's arms franticly pressing their lips against one another's.
All the anger and tension bled away instantly as Beast Boy and Raven tested the physical limits of how close they could get to one another. After several impassioned moments, the two broke apart panting at the exertion. They smiled at each other, their eyes distant and slightly glazed over.
"Do you think they bought it?" Beast Boy asked, a big stupid grin spread over his face. A grin that made Raven's heart melt.
"After a performance like that, I think we will have a hard time convincing them that we are still friends, let alone dating." Raven said, a small smile on her lips.
"So we are going to tell them right?" Beast Boy asked.
"Eventually." Raven said playfully. "But you have to admit, keeping it hidden is much more fun." She had a devious look in her eyes.
"Yeah, I'm surprised you even know how to have fun." Beast Boy joked. Raven pushed away from his embrace and feigned offense.
"I'm hurt Beast Boy." The seriousness of her face almost caused Beast Boy to wonder if she actually was.
"You're hurt?" Beast Boy asked. "You were the one who was going below the belt in that argument."
Raven rolled her eyes.
"You don't really think I look like a troll right?" Beast Boy asked innocently.
"Of course I do Beast Boy." Raven said with a rare smile. "But you're my troll."
"What!" Beast Boy shouted incredulously.
"Come on my little troll, let's go make the most of our time alone." Raven's emotionless facade returning, as she walked over to the couch. Beast Boy, looking indignant followed suit.
