Lost Without You
Chapter 10 A Second Chance
The world comes rushing at me really fast. I feel slightly nauseous. The first thing my eyes are able to focus on is a long, deep gash on a green skinned forearm. "Please, Beast Boy," I hear myself say. "I care about you."
Another voice answers, but I'm barely able to register his words. My heart is pounding too loud."I don't believe you. I know what you really think about me: annoying, pathetic, humorless, Beast Boy. Don't pretend to care, Raven. I know you truly don't. Just leave me the hell alone!"
The green arm is jerked out of my hands, but I barely notice. Instead I'm taking in my surroundings, my body shaking.
I'm standing alone in the middle of a long hallway, I recognize it as the hallway in Titans Tower that leads to the living room and kitchen. I don't understand. Aren't I supposed to be in the afterlife with Beast Boy? The last thing I remember is the bright white light flashing before my eyes when he kissed me.
The ache I felt from being pierced by the arrow is gone. I look down. In fact there is no wound at all. No blood. My heart is beating faster than ever. My hands vaguely touch the soft fabric of my cloak and my leotard. All real. I stand as still as a statue, unsure of where to go, or what to do. What's going on?
For the first time I notice the tingling in my hands. Tingling, I realize, from when I was clutching onto his arm. I feel as though I had touched an electric socket. It's a feeling I always get...when I get a vision. I stumble back a little. My breathing is uneven. Could it be possible? Could all of the horrible events that I endured just have been all a vision? Are Beast Boy and I still alive?
Suddenly a figure emerges into the hallway from the kitchen; a green figure wearing a black and purple uniform. His head is down. It's Beast Boy, looking alive and well. I finally find my voice. "Y-you're alive!"
Beast Boy stops a few feet in front of me. He lifts his head. Tears are in his eyes as he avoids my gaze. "Yeah, unfortunately."
I fly at him fast, grabbing him by the shoulders. I slam him against the wall, my hood falling back. Beast Boy gapes at me in shock and slight fear. "Raven, w-what?"
My hands run all over him. I touch his arms, his muscled chest, his damp face. All solid. This is real. My hands lands over his heart. I feel his racing pulse and the rise and fall of his chest. He's definitely alive.
I look deeply into his jade eyes. They are full of torment, betrayal, and confusion. This confirms everything. It was just a horrible vision. I have the chance to save him, and all of us from that horrible fate. Best of all I feel Brave taking over me. Nothing is going to stop me now from telling Beast Boy how I feel about him.
"You're alive," I confirm with a smile, a happy tear falling down my cheek. I lean in, placing my lips firmly against his.
This time, Beast Boy's lips are warm and taste just like I remember from my vision. Perfection. I have never been so happy to kiss him again. After overcoming the shock, Beast Boy responds with equally passionate kisses. He opens his mouth and I respond enthusiastically. I grip on his uniform as his arms wrap around my waist. I can't get enough of him. I'm so happy my heart is about to burst.
We only pull away when air becomes a necessity. Beast Boy looks utterly confused, his arms still around me. "I don't understand. I thought you hated me."
"Quite the opposite. I'm in love with you, and have been for a long time. You are my entire world."
Beast Boy smiles at me briefly, but then it fades. It looks like he wants to believe me, but isn't sure if he should. "But why are you telling me this now?"
"When I touched your arm a few minutes ago, I had a vision-a very powerful one. In the vision, you committed suicide. I learned what the others had done to you, such as Cyborg dumping your tofu, and all the horrible things Robin has been saying to you. I didn't get the chance to tell you how wrong they are. I never got to tell you how I feel."
Beast Boy looks devastated for a second. I feel slightly bad for bringing up such horrible memories. I wrap my arms around him and hug him tightly in hopes to comfort him. He avoids looking at me, confirming that he was planning to do what I saw. A tear falls down his cheek. "I don't want to hurt anymore."
I wipe the tear away. I so badly want to take all the hurt away instantly, but know it's going to take time. I've got to set things straight with the others before things get worse. "I know. But if you let me help you I promise things will get better. Please, Beast Boy. I love you. I can't lose you again."
Shakily Beast Boy runs a gloved hand through my violet hair. My entire body shivers. For the first time, he has an expression of tremendous relief. I can feel the distress in his emotions lessen considerably. He believes me.
At last he gives me a small smile. "I love you, too, Raven. So very much."
Our lips meet in another powerful kiss. After we pull away, I grab his hand. "Come on," I say gently. I lead him to his room. The journey to heal him is going to be long, but I'm determined to make him better no matter what it takes. For now all I want to do is spend time with my true love and make up for lost time.
