First, thank you all for your support! :)
And finally the date! It started off pretty well... So let's see what happens next...
Beast Boy and Raven arrived to the cinema just in time. They sat down next to each other and watched bored as the commercials rolled on. Then finally the movie started. Beast Boy told Raven on their way there that this was supposed to be the scariest movie ever made. Even scarier than 'Wicked Scary'... And both remembered the events of the night they watched that movie. Now it was all a distant funny memory. But back then, it was horrifying.
They watched the movie, at first sitting normally, not too close and not to distant from each other, but about fifteen minutes later, Raven was already holding Beast Boy's hand and telling herself 'It's not real! It's just a movie! It's not real!'
The changeling wasn't too scared... A little yes, but he still had a smile on his face... I mean, Raven was holding his hand!
Then suddenly a half rotten zombie appeared on the screen and out of nowhere blood and guts flew everywhere and there was a high-pitched scream. Raven was now so close to him that she was almost sitting in his lap. She buried her face in his chest and he put an arm around her back. She was close to screaming herself but she couldn't find her voice.
For the rest of the movie they just sat like that, Beast Boy showed maturity and didn't make stupid comments about the movie or the fact that Raven was terrified. He could be so sweet when he wanted to. He just played with her hair and told her when she could look without being scared to the bone.
"You can open your eyes now... The blood spill's over!" said Beast Boy. Raven looked up at the screen to see a girl and her brother sitting on the roof of their house and talking. It was fine until there was an explosion downstairs and a skeleton showed up at the window. The two screamed and wanted to run, but didn't have anywhere to go. Raven watched as the bony hand of the skeleton gripped an interesting and very sharp looking object. She instantly turned her face towards Beast Boy as the scream from the movie was heard. Her heart was racing. 'How could a simple movie scare me of all people so much?' she asked herself.
He looked at her understanding. He knew she was questioning herself about her fear. He would explain her later his opinion in the matter.
Half an hour later the horrid movie was finally over. The two walked out in the streets of Jump City. They started walking towards the park. Beast Boy had a whole plan... Have a walk in the park then maybe an ice cream and then end up on the beach to watch the sunset.
"Okay! Next time, we just go for a pizza!" said Raven, still not letting go of his hand.
"Yeah... Sorry... I didn't mean to-" he started.
"Hey, it's not your fault... I just... I got scared.. Because of my past I think." she said.
"What do you mean by that, Rae?" he asked curiously.
"Well... The whole Trigon thing... I had nightmares about him destroying the world... I used to have those visions and nightmares since I was a little kid and I guess seeing movies like that remind me of him... So even tough I hate admitting it but, I used to be scared of him..." explained Raven.
"Well, I don't know how to get rid of that fear, but trust me, if he ever comes back, which, I'm pretty sure he won't... We'll be here to help you defeat him! Okay? You're not alone!" he said putting his arm around her.
"I've got to tell you a secret." she said smiling at him.
"Oooh! I promise to keep it!" he said saluting.
She giggled but then she kissed his cheek and said softly:
"You are the only person who I can be myself around."
His smile was bigger than the sun itself.
"I am the luckiest guy in this world!" he said. Raven just rolled her eyes.
"You do realize I'm still not a mushy person right?" she asked.
"Yeah... But I'm still going to note down in my journal everything mushy you say to me!" he joked. She slapped his arm playfully.
"Okay okay! Don't hurt me! I bruise easily!" he said with chuckle.
"Oooh... Next time we fight Dr Light you can tell him that too! Maybe he'll listen." she said sarcastically.
He burst out laughing just as they entered the park. A few people looked at them on their way there. Some even smiled at them. The park was mostly empty. Beast Boy thought it was better that way. Raven didn't really like crowded places or people staring at her.
"You want ice cream?" he asked.
"Uh... Sure." she said with a smile.
Beast Boy took a chocolate scoop and Raven took a lemon one. They continued their walk towards the beach. They really enjoyed each others company. Who thought that was going to happen? Raven and Beast Boy. Together. It seemed impossible and yet, so right at the same time.
They sat down on a bench. It wasn't cold outside. And it's true that summer is most enjoyable in the evening. Raven leaned into him. And Beast Boy put his arm around her again. For two reasons. First he loved her . Second, he felt like someone would just steal her if he let her out of his embrace.
"So... Done anything interesting lately?" asked Beast Boy.
"Yes... Actually." she answered with a smirk.
"And what's that?" he continued.
"Why don't you find out yourself?" she said. In that moment Beast Boy's eyes sparkled mischievously. He had an interesting idea.
"Well... If you'll be kind enough to turn towards me for a second, I'll show you something really interesting." he said.
She played along and turned towards him. The next second was met with a full kiss on her lips. Her eyes fluttered shut and somehow she even managed to smile.
"So... Knowing that the sunset is your favorite time of the day, let's go down to the beach and watch it from there." said Beast Boy smiling sweetly at her.
"That sounds perfect." she smiled back.
'That really is perfect!' they thought at the same time. So hand in hand they walked down to the beach. As they stepped on the sand, they were met with a beautiful view. The sky was colored in all shades of purple, pink and orange and it all formed a spectacle before their eyes.
"That is one beautiful" started Raven before Beast Boy cut her off.
"I've seen more beautiful things in my life." said Beast Boy.
"What?" asked Raven.
"You..." he said gazing in her amethyst eyes.
"That's the most beautiful thing anyone's ever said to me." she said sounding a little happier than before.
"And that tone of yours is sounding really happy... Why don't you tell me why?" he asked.
"Because you already know." she said smiling again.
"I do? Hmm... I'm going to need some proof about that..." he said smirking.
She leaned in and gave him a shy kiss on the lips.
"Convinced?" she asked him.
"Hmm... Not really..." he stalled. She punched him in the arm still smiling.
"Too bad..." she said facing the sun again. He looked at her face for a second and thought how beautiful she was in the sunset light.
He had another mischievous idea and he picked her up, putting an arm around her back and slipped the other under her knees. She gasped in surprise then looked at him in disbelief.
"What's going on in that head of yours?"
"Oh, you'll see..." he said smiling.
"Beast Boy..." she warned narrowing her eyes.
"What?" he asked innocently.
"Can you please put me down?" she asked as kindly as she could.
"Nope..." he said. "I'm keeping you!" he continued. "You're all mine." he finished.
"Yep! Mine." he said kissing her.
"Mhmm... I can work with that!" she said smiling as she put her arms around his neck.
An hour later Raven and Beast Boy returned to the Tower. They decided to tell the other Titans about their relationship, to avoid any suspicions about their trust in the others and vice-versa.
They entered the common room and suddenly everyone else appeared in front of them.
"Weeeeell... Where have you two been? Together?" asked Cyborg with a smug expression.
"On a date." said the two.
Robin smiled. Starfire beamed and Cyborg pretended to choke.
"GLORIOUS!" yelled Starfire.
"Congratulations!" said Robin patting Beast Boy on the shoulder.
"Well, I'm very happy for both of you! But if you hurt her, I'll have to hurt you!" added Cyborg. Raven turned to him narrowing her eyes.
"Don't you think I can teach him a lesson on my own?" she asked as her eyes started glowing.
"Right... I'll add the bonus!" he grinned.
"Woah woah... Aren't you overreacting?" asked Beast Boy.
"Stay calm, Beast Boy! No one's going to hurt you." said Raven. He smiled. "Yet!" added Raven with a smirk.
Everyone except Beast Boy started laughing. He scratched the back of his neck nervously. Raven took his hand.
"I'm kidding!" she said.
"Heh.. I knew that!" he said.
"Of course you did!"
After dinner with the rest of the Titans, Beast Boy walked with Raven to her room.
"You know... This was the greatest afternoon of my life!" he said. "Well... For now anyway!" he continued.
"Same here!" she smiled. "But if you tell anyone I said that, I'll send you to another dimension." she added with a smirk.
"My lips are sealed. But my fingers might tell my journal." he said.
"Like I said before, you're an idiot!"
"And I repeat, you still love me!"
"Yeah... Weird isn't it?" she asked. But also she leaned in.
The two kissed again before finally saying goodnight and admitting to each other.
"I love you!"
And with that, Raven closed her door, and Beast Boy returned to his room. That night, both of them would have the same dream...
So there it is... All finished :) I'll let you figure out their dream! :)
