Hello all! I am so sad! This is going to be the last chapter! :(
Disclaimer: I'm sad enough the story's ending; don't make me face the reality that I do not own Teen Titans!
It was indeed a beautiful day; perfect weather to be at the park.
"So, you're really not going to kill me?"
"Don't get used to it."
"And you're really not mad at me?"
"Not at all." Raven watched a confused Kid Flash and worried Jinx.
"Well, okay then! I'm not going to question it, so, who wants to play soccer?"
"Sure, why not."
"Friends, what is this soccer?"
"It's a game, Star, come on. You'll have fun."
"Are you gonna play, Jinxie?"
"I'll watch, thanks."
"Okay then, you coming BB?"
"Totally." They ran off, but Beast Boy stopped and turned around. "Are you going to play, Raven?"
"Do you want me to stay?"
"Go have fun. I'll talk with Jinx."
"Okay, see you." He hugged her and turned around, running straight into Cyborg.
"I am not going to get used to that."
"Oh, be quiet. Why aren't you with the others anyway?"
"I came to see where you were."
"Oh, thanks." Beast Boy smiled.
They walked down to where the others were trying to explain soccer to Starfire.
"Woa. He just hugged you—and you let him." Jinx looked at Raven curiously.
"Yea." Raven half- listened, watching her boyfriend steal the ball from Robin, just to have Kid Flash steal it back. "Good try, Beast Boy!" She yelled, surprising all of her friends.
"Okay, what is going on with you? You totally like him! I could switch you back, if you want."
Raven smiled a tiny, almost unnoticeable smile. Usually this act from a person would be considered normal, but for Raven, even Jinx knew some groundbreaking change had happened.
"We may have talked last night."
"This is so exciting! We should go on a double date!"
"I am officially ignoring you now."
"Is this why you are not mad at Wally and me? Did the switch have something to do with this?"
Raven did not respond.
"Please, did it?"
"I learned a lot about him because of it, yes."
"Yay!" Jinx practically squealed.
Jinx continued to question Raven incessantly for the next half hour, and Raven continued to give her just enough information to move on from the current question.
Eventually the others got tired and came back for lunch.
"Okay, There is a cooler full of sandwiches for anyone who wants and I ended up having a few extra ribs that someone can have." (Keep in mind this 'extra' was a single extra strip, with Cyborg reserving a whole three for himself.)
"I made tofu dogs if anyone wants." Beast Boy offered not expecting a response.
"I'll have one." Everyone stared at Raven. "What? They actually taste kind of good."
It took almost five seconds before everyone started to go about their own business again.
"Here you go." Beast Boy proudly handed Raven a plate.
"Thanks." She smiled at him and his heart melted.
Once lunch was finished, the Titans packed up and drove home, stopping quickly at the movie store to pick up two videos, one of which would be watched when they arrived back at the tower. One of the movies was a Sci-Fi / action movie and the other was a romantic-comedy.
"Well, which one are we going to watch?"
"The funny one."
"The romantic one."
"I couldn't care less."
Kid Flash and Jinx stared at the five very different team members before them.
"Do you go through this every time you guys pick a movie?"
"Pretty much, yea."
"We could watch both. One before dinner and one after."
"Sounds good to me."
"When are we going to train?"
"We can take a day off, Robin."
"No we can't. The day we take a day off is the day we meet our most dangerous enemy."
"Then it's a good thing we'll be nice and rested when he gets here so we can put up our best fight." Cyborg smirked at Robin who for once had nothing to say.
"Nice one, metal head!" Beast Boy laughed, soon followed by the others.
"How about after we eat dinner we take an hour break to shower or train or whatever we want to do."
"Whatever…" Robin grabbed the DVDs and walked over to the player mumbling about trouble and not being prepared. "Wait, which one are we watching first?"
"The funny one."
"The romantic one."
"And I still say the Action."
"And I still couldn't care less. We are going to watch both, what does it matter which one we watch first?"
"I guess it doesn't."
"So what am I putting in?"
"Do the funny one first," Kid Flash chirped in.
"Yea, play the romantic comedy." Apparently Jinx and Kid Flash liked the same kinds of movies.
They popped popcorn and settled down to watch the movie. Kid Flash immediately put his arm around Jinx, who settled right into his shoulder. Beast Boy noticed and looked over at Raven. Raven noticed also, but kept her face glued to the screen. Once Cyborg flipped the lights off, Beast Boy slid his hand tentatively into Raven's. Raven eyes got wide, and she looked down at their hands. Beas Boy assumed this meant she didn't want to hold his hand, but just before he pulled away, she intertwined their fingers and leaned into him just a little. Beast Boy smiled down at her, and she pretended like it was no big deal.
Dinner was mostly idle chitchat and curious glances at Beast Boy and Raven, who kept looking at each other. No one realized that even as they moved to the dinner table, they still had yet to let go of each other. Eventually Starfire went to get some more food, and notice their intertwined hands under the table as she walked back towards them.
"Friends! You are holding the hands! Is there something you have not shared with us?"
Cyborg and Jinx both smiled and looked down at the table. They noticed each other's reactions and mouthed "You know about them" to each other almost at the exact same time. Kid Flash and Robin both looked under the table to see if Starfire was going crazy or not. She wasn't.
"Well, there is a reason I didn't kill you." Raven told Kid Flash before looking down and taking another bite of her dinner. Beast Boy took her lead and did the same, leaving the others to imagine what was going on.
After dinner, Jinx went to unpack, Kid Flash went to shower, Robin went to train, Starfire followed him, and Cyborg had to do dish duty. Beast Boy had slipped out after carrying his dishes to the sink.
"Did you see where Beast Boy went?" Raven asked Cyborg.
"Not for sure, but I think he was headed outside."
She went down to the rocks surrounding the tower to see Beast Boy sitting on a boulder. She wasn't sure what he was doing first, as he appeared to be examining the ground, but then he picked up a smooth rock and skipped it halfway across the lake.
"Oh, hi, Raven. So, everyone knows about us now."
"Is that a bad thing?"
"No. Why? Do you think it's a bad thing?"
"Not at all. Are you okay?"
"Hey! We agreed no more hiding. If we are going to have a relationship we need to be open with each other." She plopped down next to him.
"I'm fine really. I'm really excited about us being together, so I just wanted to take a few seconds to say goodbye once and for all."
"Do you want to be alone or do you want me to stay with you?"
"I can leave if you want, really, I don't mind. I don't want to ruin the moment if this is going to help you get over her."
"You never ruin anything. Stay, please."
A few moments passed.
"This is what she would have wanted for you. She would have wanted you to be happy."
"I know she would have. Thanks for being here for me, Rae."
"No problem." She smiled at her boyfriend. He smiled back, then his smile faded. His eyes slipped closed and he moved closer. Raven panicked, but slowly closed her eyes just before feeling his soft lips press against hers. The kiss lasted for a while, but soon they had to part. Too soon, in Raven's mind.
"I love you, Raven."
"I love you too."
