Sometime after "The Beast." Before if you wish, but I figure anytime before than would be unrealistic for this point in their relationship progress.
"Got any sevens?"
"May I ask why you have been repeatedly hitting your head on the table since we've started this pointless game?" Raven asked monotonously. Indeed, a nice size red bump was forming on her teammate's head.
"Raven, you're suppose to say 'Go Fish.'" He responded while drawing a card.
"And why do I have to do that?"
"Cause it's the name of the game!"
"Well, it's a stupid name, kind of like you."
"...Got any fives?" Raven asked, as Beast Boy gave her an annoyed look.
"Here." He replied angrily. Raven took the card. "I can't believe you're winning...again!"
"Actually, I just won." Raven said, smirking slightly. Beast Boy watched her lay down her last set of cards. All four suites with the respective number "five" were now staring him mockingly in the face. He stared at them for a few seconds to take in yet another loss.
"Are you sure you've never played this game before?" He said stupidly.
"Yes, for the fifth time, I am sure I have never played this game before." She replied. He sulked for a minute, head rested on his arm as he studied her closely. He no doubt was trying to figure out how she kept winning.
"Fine...best four out of seven then?" He asked hopefully, giving up all previous attempt to solve Raven's victory puzzle.
"Why do you insist on still playing when you know you're going to loose?" She retorted.
He was quiet for a moment, but then responded: "I'm spending time with you. Do I need another reason?"
She didn't know how to respond to that. He sounded so genuine, she realized. Yeah, he is kind of stupid (Telepathy only works in card games if they are to dumb to notice) but he makes up for it in other ways.
'Like when he says stuff like that.' She thought. "Fine, best four out of seven." Beast boy smiled.
It was rare occasion, but she smiled back. Raven would rather get transported to a hellish dimension before admitting it out loud, but she thought his comedic grin was kind of cute. Sometimes it made her do crazy things.
Fifteen minutes later...
"You loose...again." Raven replied almost knowingly.
"Best five out of nine then?" He repeated.
Raven smirked. She may have a soft spot for him, but being cute does not make you a winner in "Go Fish." Especially if it takes away her fun with messing with Beast Boy. She figured she could keep this charade up another round or two; even longer if she let him win sometime or later.
"Best five out of nine it is."
Took forever! Don't shoot me... (hides cowardly in corner) AHH!
Anyways, I promise I haven't been ignoring you guys! I have received each and every one of your awesome reviews, favorites, and follows! It has made me soooo happy on the inside and I can't wait to have more time to write! I just quit one of my jobs so hopefully I'll have more time to finish the next chapter of this oneshot series. This chapter is short because the next one will be long. I've already titled it: "The Demon and the Frog." Should be up soon! I've also just updated my other story Claivoyant, which is also Beast Boy and Raven centered! Go check it out if you wish; it would mean the world to me if you did! Have a great day, everybody, and thanks again for all the support! 3
