Raven tried looking every place she could think of in the tower Beast boy would go. finally she came up to the roof. it was a beautiful full mooned night. he wasn't up there, standing on the edge of the roof she could hear the waves lapping, and on the moon lit shore she saw a frame of a young man on a rock. she slipped through a portal and appeared behind him.
"Hey Beast boy."
he jumps in surprise before responding..
"uhmm hey Rae."
he waves half heartedly as he returns to what he's doing. looking over his shoulder she notices him moving the picture out of her view turning to her he tries not to stare at how beautiful she looked in the moonlight her cloak fluttering in the wind.
"So what brings you out here?"
he asks setting his sketch book down for the moment.
"I was looking for you honestly."
he thinks to himself "Great what I do this time?" sitting on the rock next to him but with enough space between them to make her comfurtable
"I wanted to talk to you.."
she pauses trying to think how she's going to state this without embarrassing herself or blowing something up.
he asks blushing when her hand grazes his own. he sensed she was thinking about something but didn't want to rush her. even though his mind was forming about a hundred possible scenarios. she looks nervous slipping her hood down. she opens her mouth to speak
"Beast boy, I love..d your work."
pulling her cloak up
"Did I just say that? Stupid stupid stupid way to chicken out!" tears brimming her cheeks as she berated herself.. she couldn't say it she was too embarrassed and afraid he wouldn't say it back. a Rude voice replies in her head.
"If your not going to say it shut your mouth before a fly or something flies in."
"umm I appreciate that Rae but you already mentioned liking it.. you sure you didn't want to say something else.?"
his heart had flown at what he thought she was going to say. only to crash and burn in flaming wreckage when she finished the sentence. she looked like she was way to nervous just to say that.. he then noticed her tears reaching up he brushed them away
"Raven come on their not worth crying over.."
Her cheeks flushed at the gentle caress of his gloved fingers.
"Thank you Beast boy."
she wanted to hug him.. her cloak lightened another shade almost purple.. she looked at him her eyes half pleading cursing this moment of weakness. "maybe he'll say it for us," a small weak voice stated.
blushing a bit when he realized he was still brushing her cheek. leaning forward slightly. when he notices the plead in her eyes. "could this be what she wants..?"her eyes close slowly leaning forward herself. closing his eyes they both lean the last few inches when *Conk* they both knock their heads together both look terribly embarrassed at what "Almost" happened.
Raven pulled her cloak up her cheeks blushing terribly
"well I guess that answered my question.."
leaning forward again she wraps her arms around his neck in an innocent hug. her eyes look longingly at him as he wraps his around her waist.
"Umm Rae I hope you don't mind but let's try that again without the headbutt."
brushing her chin he perks her face up gently and slowly hesitantly closes the gap. not closing his eyes until the last moment. her lips softly brushing his.
Raven nodded hesitantly at his request closing her eyes gently kissing back. "mm this is honestly pretty nice.."breaking the kiss she smiles. and holds him close just enjoying the moment of closeness when It was ruined by a loud obnoxious voice.. and a bright flash of light.
as Cyborg runs back into the tower holding up the camera. he is laughing running to hide before he could flash the incriminating photo to everyone.
"ooh this is going to be sweet."
Raven pushes herself away from Beast boy and starts running toward the tower fuming as her eyes shift red.
"When I catch that Tin can he's going to wish for death!"
her fists balled up as she storms through the common room in a falsely sweet voice. "Cyborg Come out come out wherever you are." looking around the tower she pauses
"hmm now where could he be?"
Beast boy still looks dazed from the kiss when Raven races out looking furious then he notices a slight glint from the roof and puts two and two together..
"ooh Cyborg is so Dead when I get a hold of him.."
flying up in the form of a hawk to the roof he storms off to Cyborgs room slamming his fist into the door. when a monotonic voice states
"He in there?"
"has to be I flew up soon as I saw the moon off his metallic frame this has to be as far as he could get."
Raven closed her eyes to focus..
"Azarath Metrion zinthos!"
the door flew open. looking around her eyes flashing four red slits as she found him. Beast boy following close behind
" Cyborg I think you know what we want.. now hand over the picture and I wont hurt you."
"You can have it if you can find it Rae."
smirking mischievously as he uses the moment of her looking around the room to run out like his room was on fire..
