AN: Set just after the episode 'The Cat Who Cried Wolf.

AN2: I wrote this at 1:50 in the morning, so it's a bit short.

Cerise Hood lay back on her bed and wondered to herself why she had confided her secret to Raven of all people.

It was true that Raven Queen was actually not as evil, correction, not evil at all, unlike her mother. And without her help, Kitty would have exposed her secret to the entire school. But she still didn't understand why she had confided to Raven in the first place. It wasn't like they were close friends or shared a room.

Well she had turned up after her encounter with Kitty. Maybe it was a case of being in the right place at the right time?

Then again, Cerise HAD growled at Raven and Raven seemed to guess her family secret. Maybe it was that?

Then there was the way Raven seemed to inspire trust in those who gave her a chance. Cerise always felt she could trust Cerise, despite her parentage. After all, who was she to judge?

There was one thing it was not though. Cerise Hood was absolutely certain that it had NOTHING to do with the crush she may or may not have had on Raven for the past few weeks. In fact, she was sure it was NOTHING to do with it at all.

But as she slept, it was Raven she was dreaming of.
