Chapter 12

A/N: I'm sorry for the shitty chapter. again, I know where i want it to go I just dont know how to get it there. Thanks for sticking with me though!

REVIEW! :)

Enjoy :)

Oh! and P.S! IF you dont like how Wildfire is, I'm sorry. there isn't much on him in the comics, and I highly doubt he looks like Starfire. If Blackfire can look different but simular, so can he!

Enjoy :)


Beast Boy rose early; his eyes pried open as soon as fresh sun leaked through his blinds. He washed up, and dressed in his doom patrol uniform, today was the day Wildfire was coming. He silently prayed to whatever god that was listening, he prayed that Starfire was okay. He walked into the elevator, and it asked him the same question as always.

"Roof top please." His voice deep, husky, fresh. He rubbed the back of his neck and sighed. His mind had been so focused on other things, with Starfire not… Starfire anymore he hadn't had time to just relax. So, he was planning on going to the rooftop to be alone for a while, to focus on himself for just a few seconds and get his thoughts in place.

"Roof Top of Titans Tower, Tennis court and Volleyball court" The doors swished open, letting the crisp morning air smack him in the face. Instantly, gooseflesh formed on his skin and he took a deep breath. Stepping out of the elevator, the sun hit his green cheek and he started to feel refreshed. He reopened his eyes, and found that he wasn't alone.

Raven stood in front of him, on the edge of the roof. Her clock billowing in the wind, and her head tilted down as if she was looking at her feet. Beast boy went to turn around, but the elevator doors slid open. The numbers above it signified somebody else was going to use it. Beast Boy chewed on his lip.

He didn't want to be around her right now, not with what's going on and what's supposed to happen today.

That's right, it's Friday. Raven has her date with that dammed Fish boy… Beast boy growled in his chest.

"Beast Boy?" Raven called. He flinched.

Damn. He turned around to face her

"Hey." He said lamely. Raven was hugging herself.

"Hi." Beast boy sighed, and walked up next to her

"Whatcha doen?" He sat on the edge of the tower, his feet dangling off the edge. Raven joined him.

"Waiting for this Wildfire guy to show up. I've been out here all night, meditating mostly. What are you doing up here?" He stole a glance at her pale face. The morning sunlight made her soft skin glow, and her azure eyes sparkle. He had never noticed how violet her eyes truly were.

"Pretty much the same. Waiting for this dude. And to think I guess." He rubbed the back of his neck. He pulled his eyes away from hers. They sat in silence for a few moments, the only sound were the ocean waves below them. Finally, Beast boy spoke.

"So, today's Friday. You excited?" he turned to face her. He HAD to see if she really wanted to do this.

"For?" confusion. She must have forgotten.

"Your date with him." It came out in a sneer.

"Oh. I forgot." She sighed, and eyes cast downward to their swinging feet, sadness crossed her face

"No. I'm not, I don't even want to go out with this guy. I don't know why I said yes… I guess it was on impulse. But no backing out now." She sighed again, and Beast boy felt hope swell in his chest

"You don't… like him?"

"What? No. He's cute, but he's too… fishy. He has exterior motives, I can feel it." Beast boy snorted a laugh.

Fishy. Ha!
"What's so funny?"

"Oh nothing, just that he's Fishy." He suddenly felt himself bursting out laughing. Why was this so funny?
Raven didn't seem to know why either. She cocked an eyebrow at him, but found herself smiling.

He was being that immature idiot he used to be, and honestly Raven's missed it. She chuckled lightly.

"You're a goof." She shook her head.

"Hey! I'm offended over here! Sheesh." He replied in mock hurt. She lightly punched him in the arm. Beast boy found himself smiling more.

God, he missed her. Suddenly his face fell, and he played with his thumbs

"So, what're you going to do about the date?" He asked quietly.

"Why does it matter so much?" Raven retorted.

"Because it does."

"Cause why?"

"Cause!"

"Cause why?"

"It just does Rae! Answer the question." Beast boy's voice rose slightly.

"I plan on going to dinner, getting a free meal and then leaving it at that. Whatever happens… happens." She shrugged.

Could she not see how this was killing him? He opened his mouth to speak, but fell short of words. He didn't know what to say, so he sat in silence.

"You know, I've been having nightmares again." Raven admitted. It was his turn to cock and eyebrow

"Really?"

"Yeah… and when I slept with you… well in the same bed I mean, I didn't have any nightmares. Not a single one…"

"Really?" again, hope swelled in his chest but he quickly snuffed it out, or tried to that is.

"Really. And I've been wondering… for the past few hours, why that is? What makes you so different? I've never slept in the same bed with anyone before except Azar, and even then I still had nightmares. Why are you, so special?" she turned her head to stare directly at his eyes. He froze; it was like she was looking right through him, to his very soul. He decided to go for broke, and flirt a little.

"Probably because you were sleeping next to a sexy young man, who could protect a beautiful women like yourself from danger." He waggled his eyebrows. Raven's cheeks got a tint of red, and she laughed

"Yeah sure, that's it." He grinned, his bottom fang popping out of his lower lip. Raven's eyes lingered on that lip far longer than she should've. She found herself starting to lean forward.

She wanted to taste him, feel his soft touch on her cold skin. She swallowed, and stopped leaning forward.

Beast boy was staring at Ravens mouth, her pale plump lips looking so inviting.

Just a taste, he thought. Just one, single taste… He too, started to lean forward.

And as they closed the distance, Raven's heart hammered into her chest. She could feel his warm minty breath on her flesh, beating off her like the morning sun's rays.

And then, a rush of air cause both teens to jump out of the skin.

They glanced up to see a man floating above them. He was dressed in a sapphire and silver uniform, a emerald on his chest. Sapphire sleeves, and boots. Silver on his chest and his privates area. His hair was flaming red, much like Starfires and his eyes a neon blue. The most beautiful blue Raven has ever seen. His hair was shaggy and blew in the soft wind. Stubble covered his jaw line, and his skin was orange. He hovered in the grinning knowingly at the two titans. Raven blushed, and Beast boy growled.

"Hello there, you the titans?" His voice was deep, and it made Raven's stomach shoot up with butterflies. It was obvious he was more fluent in English than Starfire ever was. My, this man was handsome!

"Uh… Yes! We are… you must be Wildfire…" Raven said. The man nodded. Beast boy and Raven stood up, and Wildfire landed in between them. The more Raven studied him, the more she realized something…

"You look remarkably like Starfire." She observed.

"Well duh, I'm her brother. Long lost in fact." Raven's and Beast boy's eyebrows shot skyward. Wildfire laughed.

"Right, so! Where is she? I wish to see her. hopefully she isn't as bad as Galfore said she was." He went to take a step forward but Beast boy gripped his arm

"No way man! The last time a relative came to visit Starfire, she was almost arrested!"

"Ugh, Blackfire would do such a thing." He rolled his eyes

"Don't worry about me. But you can let go now." He tried to jerked his thick arm away from Beast boy stone grip. Wildfire groaned

"Come on dude, don't make me do this."

"Do what?" Beast Boy challenged. Wildfire suddenly thrust his hand in Beast Boy's face, a bright blue orb humming in his palm. Beast boy yelped, and let go. The heat of the starbolt searing his skin

"Dude!" Beas boy shouted, holding his cheek.

"I told you to let go!" Wildfire's sapphire starbolt shimmered out.

The elevator doors opened, and out came Nightwing and the others.

"Wildfire?" He asked. He nodded.

"Come with me."


Wildfire stood over Starfires bed. She had stayed in the same position as the day before, sitting straight up and staring blankly at the wall before her. Her 'brother' waved his hand in front of her face, but she didn't even blink.

"Starfire!" Wildfire shouted. Slowly, the Tameranians head turned

"Hello Brother. It is good to see you again." Her voice, hollow just like her dead green stare. Wildfire shuddered.

"Wow. You guys messed her up good… what did you do?" He turned to the rest of the titans. Bumble bee crossed her arms.

"Nightwing here didn't confess his love for her." her brown eyes shot daggers towards Nightwing. Their leader sighed and ran a hand through his thick black hair.

"I didn't know okay? If I could say it now I would. Over and over again." Wildfire stepped away from the bed

"Then say it."He gestured. Nightwing gave a confused look

"You think it'll work?"

"Worth a try." Nightwing sighed, and sat next to Starfire. He took her hands in his, and laid a black gloved one on her cold cheek.

"Starfire…" He began

"I'm sorry for everything I've put you through. I'm sorry for causing you so much pain, and if I knew what I was doing I would have told you right away the three words you've been dying to hear. The three words that speak volumes, and are nothing but the truth and have been since the day you crashed in my front yard." Green eyes flicked to meet his masked ones. Nightwing reached up, and untied his mask.

Blue and green eyes stared back. Raven stifled a gasp, nobody has ever seen his real eye before… they were beautiful…

"Starfire, I love you. So much. I love you more than anything in this world, I would die for you, I would kill for you. You're more to me that you give yourself credit for. I should've told you the day I met you, I should've told you on that faithful day in Tokyo… I love you Kori'Andr."

Her green orbs started to water, and something sparked behind them. But her emotionless face kept still. Everyone in the room took a deep gasp, even Wildfire was holding his breath.

Warmth started to spread underneath his glove, and Nightwing's heart began to fill with hope.

She suddenly closed her eyes, and silent tears leaked from the corners.

Yet she said nothing. Her knuckled flashed with green energy, but it was quick. Like turning off a light. Her body started to shake, but her face remained emotionless.

It was like a battle was happening inside of her, like she was trying to decide whether to come back… or not…

Yet after everything Nightwing has put her through, after every lonely night, every empty word and hollow touch…

Why would she come back to that?
