I got bored and kind of had this idea. I've had major writers block recently regarding my other stories. I just liked this idea. I love the Beastboy Raven ppairing.
Beast Boy's p.o.v.
I remember knowing Raven before I joined the Titans. It was when I had first come to the city. It was ultimately my first heart break. I remember everything from that lonely rainy day in the library. I hadn't known who Raven Roth was. I only knew I was looking at a beautiful girl.
I remember sitting quietly in the library. She was at the table right next to me. She was reading as she does to this day. Her phone rang. She picked it up on the third ring.
"I said don't call me anymore!" She said with an annoyed tone into the phone. I could hear a deep guys voice on the other end, but I couldn't make out what he was saying. She slammed her phone shut. I stood up and walked toward her.
"Uh... Uhmm.." I mummer looking at her. I turn around and pace back towards my table. She was just so beautiful. I look at her again and open my mouth, but I was interupted by the ringing of her phone.
"I told you not to call me again ok!" She said and hung up once more.
"Uhhh," I sounded like an idiot, but she didn't notice at all. She heaved a sigh, and stared at the table. Her face wasn't showing any emotion except for the fact she was annoyed.
"I uh..." I try again, but make no progress. She still didn't notice me. Her phone rang again.
"I said don- Oh. You do? I feel the same way. Ok. I'll meet you out front. See you in a few minutes." She said through the phone. She stood up, and gathered her books.
"Oh hey," She said smiling at me. I frowned in defeat, and stuck my hand up.
"Hi," I say back with a soft smile. She walked out. I went over to the chair in which she had been sitting, and imagined she still there.
"Hey there I noticed you over here looking a little sad. I was thinking a girl with such a pretty face should never look so sad. I'd be honored if you'd allow me to take you out for some coffee." By the end I had tears falling down my face. My heart ached. She had left a book on the table. It wasn't a library book. I opened the front cover of it. It said Rachel Roth, and with that I was able to place a name to such an angelic face. I pulled a pen out of my pocket and wrote what I had just said out loud to her empty chair on the inside of the book cover. At the end I added five simple words.
'I love you Rachel Roth,' I then signed it Garfield Logan. I placed the book back on the table. I exited the library with nothing, but a broken heart. The words my ears had picked up on the phone rang in my ears. "I love you Rae," The mystery man had said.
Some months later when I joined the Titans I met Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, and Raven the girl under the cloak. I wondered what her face looked like under the hood. It wasn't until a week or so later that the hood fell off. I stopped shocked it was the face of Rachel Roth. I immediatly ran to her side to help her fend off the bad guys. She didn't look very happy, but I didn't care. I knew I'd die for Rachel Roth if it came to it.
I wonder if she got the message I left for her in the book. If she did she wouldn't know it was from me since we didn't share our real names. Maybe it was fate that we were brought back together, or maybe it was torture. Torture that I had to feel that heart break over and over, and she'd never understand. At the same time I felt like the luckiest guy in the world to be so close to the person I love.
It was raining today. Just as it was on that day many years ago. Raven was hustling around. I offered her a smile.
"Hey Rae, where's the fire?" I asked her.
"I have a date today Beastboy. Thanks for asking." She answered. My heart dropped to my stomach.
"Oh, well uhm... Me too. I have a date too," I say not very confident. She stops.
"Whom with?" She asked quickly.
"Uh... Just a girl I met at the pizza place." I answer slowly casting Raven an uneasy gaze. Raven nodded before muttering she had to leave. I sighed. It was probably that guy from that day. I can't say I blame him. Who wouldn't love a girl like her.
I exit the tower, and make my way to the library. I haven't been here since that day. I make my way back to the very same table that she had been sitting at. I pull my pocket knife out of my pocket, and start carving something into the table.
When I finish I smile with my eyes tearing up. The spot on the table said:
"I love you Rachel Roth"
One shot or not? Is the question. Review for critiquing and to tell me if I should continue.
