''Man, some people just can't take a joke!'' Cyborg muttered to himself as he sailed down towards the ocean, crossing his arms and keeping his cool exterior even as he swiftly descended towards the bay from a height most people would have considered lethal.
If there was one thing Cyborg was absolutely certain of, it was that life with the Teen Titans never got dull. Each day was like a new adventure! For example: One minute you'd be standing there in the doorway of the common-room, asking your friends what they wanted for breakfast and the next thing you know, you'd be sailing through a black vortex in the floor, conveniently dropping you off above the chilling waters of Jump City bay… Go figure!
''Well… that was awkward!'' Beast boy declared, his eyes darting nervously around the room in a desperate search for something to take his mind off the extremely attractive girl currently mounted on his lap.
''…Or something.'' Raven muttered, burying her blushing face in her hands as she attempted to gather her thoughts…
Honestly, just how stupid can one be? Sleeping next to Beast boy; what was she thinking?! Had she really been that tired yesterday? Okay, so she knew all along that Beast boy could change back at any time, she just didn't expect it to turn out like this! Shirtless changeling, pant-less Goth, bodies entangled and of course… Cyborg just had to be there to witness the whole thing! (And why had she'd been dreaming about waffles anyway?)
''Oh, great! I am never gonna live this down!'' Raven sulked, clutching her cloudy head as she leaned back and looked up at the ceiling in defeat.
Beast boy didn't answer, his mind was currently concentrated on something entirely different. This was it; the nearly impossible task that every boy was destined to face at least once in his lifetime: Looking away…! His hormone-drenched brain was currently ignoring every desperate order he hammered into it, absolutely refusing to move his eyes away from the fabric-covered bust that was currently being pushed up right before his eyes. If "anime-logic" applied to reality, he would be bleeding his heart out of his nose right now…
'Look-away-or-you're-gonna-die! Look-away-or-you're-gonna-die! Look-away-or-you're-gonna-die!' he screamed inside his head as he fought his obvious urge to keep staring at Raven's… y'know.
Another deep, frustrated groan from the Azerathian was thankfully enough to draw his gaze away from the two boy-magnets long enough to meet her gaze.
''So, just to be absolutely clear…'' the pale girl spoke as she leaned in, looking him directly into the eyes with a dead serious expression, her gaze cutting through him like daggers heated in a furnace. ''This. Never. Happened!''
Seemingly incapable of uttering any sensible words at the moment, Beast boy simply nodded at her, careful not to let his eyes escape her's. (Who knows where they'd end up if he did?)
''Good.'' Raven deadpanned in approval, never letting her watchful eyes leave him as she sat there leaned over him in an almost hawk-like position. ''And for the record…''
Beast boy's eyes widened as he watched Raven lean in until her face was just a few inches away from his own.
''…neither did this!''
Before the changeling could react, her lips were instantly on his, greedily pushing against his mouth as her fingers dug into his shoulders, chartering her against him as if she was making sure he wouldn't push her away. But her concern was wasted; there was NO WAY he would end this before she did! This was what he had literally dreamt of for months now and he wasn't about to give it all up now that it was finally coming true. Still, it was pretty obvious his dreams had never done Raven any justice. For a seemingly inexperienced kisser, this girl sure seemed to know what she was doing! He had always loved the way she smelled, but he never would have imagined she tasted this good! (Probably had something to do with all that herbal tea she always consumed.)
Quietly and carefully snaking his hands up her bare arms, he left them to rest under the short sleeves of her dark-blue tee as he slowly bent his upper body upwards and responded to her lustful lip-mashing.
At first, Beast boy had expected Raven to flip him off the couch right after he had given her his vow, using her powers to undo the awkward (crotch-grinding) position they were currently in before exiting the room in the discrete, rouge-like manner she so often did. Maybe she would have opened another portal under him, sending him away like she had done with Cyborg while the empath herself levitated safely in the air over the molecular rift she had created. But this… he never would have seen coming.
''Hey, you guys are up!''
Beast boy and Raven were instantly on different ends of the couch, staring surprised at their newly arrived team-mates with their eyes widened in shock and horror.
''Did we by any chance interrupt something?'' Robin asked, shooting the two flustered teens a meaning grin.
Neither of the two lovebirds on the couch answered as they were far too busy trying to collect themselves from what had just happened. Was the universe conspiring against them or something? Honestly, how many times could you get busted getting all intimate with your best friend on the same morning?! Sure, everyone had lived through their fair share of bad days, but this was just ridiculous!
''Did you have a pleasant sleep, friend Raven?'' Starfire asked as she entered the room past Robin, cheery as ever.
The morning-happy Tamaranean immediately froze, however, once she noticed the tense atmosphere that filled the room and poured out over anyone brave (or stupid) enough to enter. Gazing out over the scenery before her, the alien princess quickly realized that something was not right; Both Beast boy and Raven were sitting on opposite ends of the couch, their breaths strained and their faces tomato-red of blush. There was no sign of Cyborg who had entered the room about five minutes before them and Robin was looking like a paparazzi who had just stumbled over the scoop of the year. (To describe the situation in relatively… "earthly" terms.)
All it took was one, short look from her Azerathian sister for Starfire to realize that she had to take action immediately. Though she still wasn't completely clear over what exactly had happened, she knew what she had to do!
She may not have been able to read minds, but… you know… "girl-thing"!
''Boyfriend Robin!'' the alien redhead cheered as she placed herself in front of him. ''Let us head back to your quarters and indulge ourselves in the earthly activity of extreme make-out!''
You could practically see Robin heart pound against his suit, the white spaces that lined out his eyes on the mask shaping into giant circles as his smug grin dropped into an expression of utter bewilderment. In fact, it was a miracle he managed to keep his chin off the floor! Nevertheless, he didn't protest one bit. He just turned on his heels and marched out into the hallway leading to his room, followed shortly by the smiling Starfire.
Good luck! She mouthed to Raven before disappearing behind the wall, leaving the two starcrossed lovers to themselves once again.
Things remained quiet for a while, until the two teens finally locked gazed and broke up into amused little grins.
''Now that was awkward!'' Raven said as she leaned back on the couch, stretching her stiff body in the warming rays of the morning sun shining in through the windows.
Beast boy just chuckled as he slid his hand through his forest-green hair, basking in the satisfying feeling of finally being able to fulfill his longtime dream.
