Guess what, guys and gals? This will be the last chapter! But don't worry, there's a sequel!

Thank you all so much for reading up to this point, I really appreciate your time! ENJOY! :)

Beast Boy slowly stepped into Raven's room and walked toward her bed.

He sat down gently upon the dark-blue comforter, which covered bright, hot-pink bedsheets. He set the butt of the guitar down on the carpet with the neck resting against the side of the bed.

"Never figured you as the type to like pink," Beast Boy jested. "Or was that Happy's doing?"

Raven blushed, her face turning a shade of pinkish-red.

She remembered that Beast Boy had been inside her mind before and had interacted with a few of her emotions.

She smiled nervously, and then turned the awkwardness onto him.

"Never figured you as the type to play guitar," Raven mimicked Beast Boy's previous wise-crack, glancing down at the guitar he was holding. "I didn't even know you knew how to play any instruments."

Beast Boy blushed in response, his cheeks on his green face now also turning a bright shade of pink. He lifted his arm up to the back of his head and started nervously scratching the back of his neck.

"Well, you haven't left your room in a while, have you?" He questioned her, chuckling.

Then a sudden seriousness swept over him as he quickly realized that he was the reason that she cooped herself up in this dark and gloomy space in the first place.

Raven lightly shook her head, a sullen and somber countenance appearing.

"Well, I've been gone the past three days," Beast Boy continued. "I went and paid Jericho a visit. He lent me his spare guitar to use, and he taught me how to play it." He finished his story with a sad smile on his face.

"How much could you have learned in three days?" Raven wondered, completely puzzled.

"I'm a fast learner," Beast Boy replied, the sad smile transforming into the broad, goofy grin that she had come to absolutely adore.

A visible glow in his eyes accompanied his trademark smile, and Raven felt her heart melt.

"Raven…" Beast Boy started. "About what I said that morning, I promise I didn't –"

He was interrupted when Raven lunged at him and planted a deep, passionate kiss onto his unsuspecting face, knocking him onto his back, almost falling off the bed.

He tensed up for just a moment before relaxing and returning her kiss, bringing his hand up to her head and absent-mindedly playing with her unfathomably luscious locks as they kissed.

She broke away, sat up and stared at him in his brilliant green eyes.

"No, Beast Boy," Raven stated apologetically. "I'm sorry. I know I over-reacted, but I just felt kinda rushed into this whole thing."

He looked worried, and she quickly tried to reassure him.

"I don't blame you at all, I promise," she said softly. Beast Boy nodded understandingly.

"Thank you," he whispered after a few moments of silence, looking back at her, smiling that beautiful, innocent smile that Raven couldn't get enough of.

"For what?" She asked.

"For loving me the way nobody else in this world ever could," he responded. The rogue tooth outside his mouth twinkled in the sunlight.

If her heart was melting before, it was completely melted now. She was overcome with love, and she threw herself back onto him for another kiss.

But Beast Boy was ready for it this time, his lips welcoming hers as they met yet again.

After about three minutes of tongue wrestling, Raven sat back up and lifted herself off him, sitting beside him on the bed.

Beast Boy sat back up on the bed, still swept up in the passion between them.

Then he reached over and grabbed the guitar, holding it in his lap.

"Can I play you a song?" he asked hopefully, nervousness racking his voice.

Raven simply nodded, her eyes focusing on the guitar.

It really was a stunning instrument. It was a top-of-the-line guitar, with near-perfect steel strings and a polished finish painted on it. It was hard to believe that this was Jericho's backup guitar.

"I never told anyone this, but I actually took voice lessons last year," Beast Boy said, and he turned his head away as he blushed again.

"Really?" Raven replied, her voice trembling with excitement.

"Yeah," he declared, with a little more pride in his voice than before. He pulled out a guitar pick from his pocket, and turned toward Raven.

"Well, here goes nothing."

He positioned his fingers on the neck of the guitar, and started playing.

He softly strummed the strings with the pick twice, and then hit all six strings simultaneously with four fingers and his palm, making the guitar give a small thunk sound. He continued this trend as he played.

After only two "thunk"s, Raven instantly knew what song he was performing for her, and she sighed happily.

"How did he know that was my favorite love song?" Raven thought. "It's my guilty pleasure! He is the man I was meant to be with…if he'll stay with me."

Raven became worried, knowing what she would have to confess to him, but she retained her outward smile, Beast Boy being none the wiser.

Beast Boy smiled back at her and continued strumming and thunk-ing the guitar strings, and then he began to sing, almost perfectly in tune.

Saying "I love you"
Is not the words I want to hear from you.
It's not that I want you,
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to
Show me how you feel!

More than words
Is all you have to do to make it real,
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me,
'Cause I'd already know.

Raven was extremely impressed with Beast Boy's vocal range, even though his voice strained slightly to reach the highest notes.

A tear fell from her pale, beautiful face as she continued listening.

What would you do
If my heart was torn in two?
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real.
What would you say
If I took those words away?
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying "I love you"

La-dee-da, la-dee-da, dee-dye-dye-da
More than words
La-dee-da, la-dee-da

She grinned at how soft and genuine Beast Boy's singing voice was. It was not how she had expected it at all. She had remembered his rough, scratchy and downright awful singing voice from their karaoke night a year and a half ago with the Titans East.

Now that I've tried to
Talk to you and make you understand,
All you have to do is
Close your eyes and just reach out your hands
And touch me, hold me close,
Don't ever let me go!

More than words
Is all I ever needed you to show,
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me,
'Cause I'd already know

What would you do
If my heart was torn in two?
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real.
What would you say
If I took those words away?
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying "I love you!"

La-dee-da, la-dee-da, dee-dye-dye-da
More than words
La-dee-da, la-dee-da, dee-dye-dye-da
More than words
La-dee-da,[begins to strum more aggressively]
Da-dee-da, dee-dye-dye, la-da-dye

More than words [returns to normal strumming]
La-dee-da, dye-da, la-da-da-dee
More than wooo-ooooooords
Ooooooh, oooh ooooh oooooh,
Oooooh oooh oooooh

Beast Boy began picking rapidly at the strings, with amazing accuracy, as Raven recalled from the recorded version of the song. One final pluck of a string echoed throughout the room.

More than…
Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ords.

Raven simply stared, starry-eyed, as Beast Boy played the final few notes, which ended in a majestic final chord.

The moments passed, the pair of them just staring at each other, reading each other's eyes.

"Beast Boy," Raven breathed. "That is the most touching thing anyone has ever done for me. That was absolutely…enchanting!" She chuckled at herself, thinking that her use of the word "enchanting" made her sound like Starfire.

He blushed, and continued looking into her crystal eyes.

"Really?" he asked, with a delighted smile. "You liked it?"

"I loved it," Raven replied with a playful smirk.

Tears began to freely fall from her eyes, and she pulled him in and hugged him. Their chests were pressed together, and she rested her head on his shoulder.

"You're the best thing that has ever happened to me," she whispered in his ear.

His mind practically exploded at her statement. His head was spinning. The Tower could have collapsed at that moment and he wouldn't have taken his eyes off of her. The whole world could have ended right then, and he wouldn't have cared in the slightest.

"But…" Raven continued, "there's something that you deserve to know."

"What is it?" he asked softly. He realized the gravity of what she had to say, though he had no idea what she was about to tell him.

She hesitated. She didn't know how to tell him, she couldn't formulate the words.

"It's okay, I promise, you can tell me anything," he assured her with a smile. "You can trust me, I promise, Rae."

"I…I'm…" she couldn't force the words out. She knew she had to tell him, no matter how much she didn't want to, no matter how much she wished it wasn't true, for fear of driving him away.

"Yeah?" Beast Boy's face was one of seriousness and anxiety, but also excitement.

"I'm…" she gazed into his eyes, hoping what she was about to say wouldn't make him stand up and leave.
