This is a BBxRae fanfic so if you don't like the pairing, then don't read it. Enjoy!
"Azarath… Metrion… Zinthos… Azarath… Metrion… Zinthos…" Those were the words that Raven chanted as she was meditating in front of the large windows in the Ops room. She was tired of meditating in her room and decided for a change of scenery.
It was late morning and everyone was up and the tower was full of noise. A skill that Raven acquired shortly after moving into the Titan's Tower was learning to block everyone else out. If she didn't learn how to do that she would have gone insane by now. At that particular moment Raven was putting that skill to use.
Currently, Beast Boy and Cyborg were arguing over who got to play the new Mega Monkey's game first when it comes out. Beast Boy was of course making points that only his inadequate brain could make sense of. Robin was with Starfire in the kitchen watching her with love sick eyes as she was making a Tamarean dish that looked like it was alive. Who knows, thought Raven, maybe Starfire is actually a good cook on Tamaran. Raven almost laughed at the improbable thought. Almost. Yes, everything was going normal as usual. Raven was pretty content today. Beast Boy hasn't even bothered me with one of his stupid jokes, thought Raven smugly. Raven suddenly frowned when she felt the presence of a certain green changeling right next to her. She didn't even notice that Beast Boy and Cyborg had stopped arguing. Raven sighed and turned her head to question Beast Boy as to why he there but she stopped when she looked at what he was doing.
Raven couldn't believe her eyes. Here, sitting next to her was Beast Boy, meditating. Raven was so stunned that she sat there with her mouth hanging open. Raven quickly regained her composure and cleared her throat to gain Beast Boy's attention. But Beast Boy acted as if she wasn't even there. Raven, now clearly annoyed, called Beast Boy's name. Still no reply. She then tapped his shoulder. He didn't even flinch. That was it. Raven levitated a cushion from the couch and slammed it into Beast Boy's face. Beast Boy fell backward with a yell and then looked up at Raven rubbing his head.
"WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT FOR?!" screamed Beast Boy.
"You were ignoring me," stated Raven calmly.
"SO? YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO-" Beast Boy suddenly stopped mid-sentence and started shaking his head smirking. "Raven, Raven, Raven," said a chuckling Beast Boy, "Aren't you always the one telling us to not interrupt you when you are meditating? Yet, here you are interrupting other people when they are meditating. I didn't realize you were such a hypocrite Raven." Beast Boy had a devious smirk plastered on his face and en evil glint in his eyes. Raven didn't know what to do besides stare at Beast Boy dumbly.
I can't believe this!, thought Raven. That snot colored pest just out smarted me! Raven so badly wanted to hit Beast Boy with the couch cushion again but she knew Beast Boy was right. Beast Boy, seeing that he won, turned around to face the window again and returned to meditating. Not knowing what else to do, Raven just sat there waiting for Beast Boy to finish. Raven was tempted a couple times to take a quick peek into his mind to see what he was thinking, but decided that it would be wrong to do that.
As Raven waited not so patiently for Beast Boy to be done, she went over all the motives that Beast Boy could have for doing this. He's probably just mocking me, she thought, or maybe he's just trying to find new ways to annoy me. All I know is if he is, he sure as hell is doing a good job. Well, two can play at that game. I'll just have to show him that whatever he does doesn't bother me in the least bit. With thought, Raven went back to meditating like Beast Boy wasn't even there.
A half of an hour later, Beast Boy opened his eyes smiling. He felt so peaceful. Beast Boy then looked to his left and saw Raven floating peacefully meditating. Beast Boy smiled and got up quietly as to not to disturb her, and went to his room.
It was now dinner time the same day, and the team was in the T-car, coming back from fighting Cinderblock. Everyone was in a good mood because they took down Cinderblock in 20 minutes, a new record, and Robin rewarded them with no early morning training for a week.
Beast Boy, hearing his stomach growl whines, "I'm hungry, who wants pizza?" A chorus of "me's" and "I do's" rang through the car as Cyborg drove his baby towards their local pizza place. When they arrived they were treated like special guests, as usual, and took a seat outside. As Cyborg, Beast Boy, and Robin were arguing over what kind of pizza they were getting, Starfire turned to Raven and started talking to her about the cutest top she saw at the "mall of shopping" the other day.
"It was the most glorious piece of clothing I have ever seen! It was pink with lots of shinny little discs which I believe you call "sequins". Am I correct?" questioned the red- head with a huge smile on her face. As much as Starfire annoyed Raven, Starfire was still her best friend so Raven did her best to carry on the conversation with her. Eventually the boys decided on what they were getting and ordered it. While they were waiting for their food to come, the teens talked and taunted each other. When the food finally came, they all started eating like they have never been fed before, making a huge mess of things. Well, everybody except Raven of course. Everyone was having a good time. Raven was a lot more relaxed than usual and everybody noticed.
While eating, Raven noticed a pair of eyes staring at her. She looked at the person who owned those pair of eyes and questioned him. "Is there a reason you're staring at me, Beast Boy?"
Beast Boy blushed and looked down at the table. "N-no, It's j-just…" the boy stuttered. He sighed and gave up on trying to talk and picked up a napkin, reached across the table and gently wiped the corner of Raven's mouth. "You had something on your mouth," whispered Beast Boy softly, still blushing. It was dead silent at the table and everyone's eyes were on Raven wondering if she was going to kill Beast Boy or not. Raven cleared her throat, breaking the silence and said, "Thank you, Beast Boy. Now, if you will excuse me…" With that Raven teleported to her room, her eyes never leaving the ground.
"I thought the green bean was a dead man," whispered Cyborg to Robin. Robin just nodded, still in disbelief himself, then stood up, paid for dinner, and patted Beast Boy on the shoulder as he walked out. Cyborg and Starfire soon followed leaving Beast Boy alone to wonder what the hell he just did.
Raven was pacing inside her room, freaking out. As random objects swirled around her room covered in a black aura, she wondered what was making Beast Boy act so weirdly today. Raven didn't even had the chance to yell at Beast Boy for this morning's incident because when she was finished meditating, he wasn't there anymore. Now she had another thing to yell at Beast Boy for. Should I even yell at him for it? I mean he was only trying to be nice, right? But what if he only did it to mess with my head like earlier? That has to be it, concluded Raven. With that Raven went to her bookcase to look for a new book to read. Selecting a mystery she had been wanting to read for a while now, Raven sat down on her bed and opened the book to the first page.
Raven was half way through the book and very immersed in it when she heard a knock on her door. The empath looked at her clock and realized that she had been reading for 3 hours. Reluctantly, Raven rose from her bed and went to go see who disturbed her peace. She slid the door open only enough that she could see who it was, and not so surprisingly, it was none other than her green teammate.
"What do you want, Beast Boy?" said Raven monotone.
"Well," said Beast Boy while dragging his foot along the floor, "I just wanted to apologize for today. I didn't mean to bother you, I just wanted to, I don't know… understand you better? Maybe get you to like me. Anyways, I just came to say I'm sorry." As Beast Boy turned around and started to walk away, Raven called out to Beast Boy.
"Beast Boy." Said boy turned around and looked at Raven expectantly. "So you weren't trying to annoy me?" questioned Raven.
"No... At least not today," replied Beast Boy with a smirk.
"Oh." Beast Boy turned around and started to walk away again when Raven called out to him a second time. Raven cursed herself before saying, "You could have just said something. If you stopped acting like such an idiot and asked to do something with me, I might have said yes." Truthfully, Raven had been feeling something for the green boy lately, but she couldn't figure out what it was. She thought that if she spent some time with him, other than yelling at him or throwing him out windows, then maybe she could figure out what it is.
Beast Boy's whole face lit up as he yelled, "Really? Thanks Rae! What do you want to do first? I heard there was a fair in town, we can go there!" Upon looking at the angry expression on Raven's face as he was dragging her out her room by her wrist, he cowered slightly and then said "Or maybe we can just go to that café you like, how about it, Rae?"
Raven, now slightly pissed off, replied, "First off, my name is Raven, not Rae. Second of all, if you haven't noticed, it's night time. When I said we could do something, I didn't mean this minute. Now if you don't let go of my wrist right now, we won't go anywhere or do anything tomorrow."
"Got it," squeaked Beast Boy as he let go her wrist. With that Raven turned around and went back into her room without even acknowledging Beast Boy's "goodnight". Even so, Raven couldn't help but smile when she heard Beast Boy running down the hall way cheering happily about the next day. She then cursed herself when the book she was reading before Beast Boy interrupted her blew up.
