Raven and Beast Boy slowly flew back to the Tower. Beast Boy glanced over at Raven as they rode her black energy disc. "Come on," he said beseechingly, "you gotta admit, that was actually fun, and nothing terrible happened."
Raven glanced at him and sighed. "Okay, I admit...it was fun. You surprised me, Gar. I never took you for a theater buff."
He shrugged. "There's a lot you don't know about me, Raven. But if you'll give me a chance, I'll be glad to show you." There wasn't anything suggestive in the way he said it. He was being sincere.
She sighed. "I'll sleep on it, okay?"
He nodded. "Okay!" He was happy with this. He had been expecting a flat no. He actually had a chance.
They landed at the enterance of the Tower. When they opened the door, and their communicators went off.
"Recorded message delivered. TIme stamp: 5:30 pm today."
"That was near the start of the play," Raven said curiously. "Nearly 3 hours ago."
Beast Boy flipped open the communicator. "It's from Cyborg."
The message played.
"Hey, ya'all. Sorry to ditch you like this, but Jinx called from the North Tower. She's got an emergency on her hands, and needs my help." Beast Boy smirked. Everyone knew Cyborg'd drop everything if Jinx so much as had the sniffles, ever since they started dating. "Robin, Star, I tried to call you, but your comms were off. I wonder why that was, if you were off shopping?" Raven actually let off a low chuckle at this. "Raven, you know what you said you'd do to me if I interrupted your first date, I wasn't gonna risk it." Beast Boy glanced at Raven, and she looked away, pulling her hood up to hide her blush. "Anyway, I'm sure you all can handle anything that happens while I'm gone. What's the worst that could happen?"
Beast Boy chuckled. "You threatened Cyborg to keep him from interrupting?"
Raven glowered at Beast Boy. "Okay, so I was looking forward to it. It was my first date ever, after all. Even if it wasn't yours..." She turned away.
Beast Boy lowered his gaze. "Sorry..."
She shook her head. "Let's just go in. Robin and Starfire have probably been back for a while."
"Knowing them, we'll probably catch them in the middle of 'the making of the bumgorfs'," Beast Boy said, mimicking Star's voice for the end of it.
Getting to the common room, Raven froze. "Well...you were half right..."
A red headed baby Tamaranean girl was floating around the common room, followed closely on the ground by a black haired baby human boy wearing a mask. The Tamaranean girl was giggling as she floated by, and the human boy was crawling and reaching towards her, alternately grunting and laughing.
Beast Boy grreeted the sight...badly. "Dude! What the f***?"
Raven smacked him in the back of the head. "Beast Boy!"
But it was too late. The Tamaranean girl giggled. "F***! F***!"
The human boy laughed. "F***! F***!"
Raven groaned. "Whoever they are...somehow, Beast Boy, I know this is YOUR fault."
"It's Robin and Starfire."
"Their scent matches exactly."
Raven just stared, then sank into a chair, groaning.
