DISCLAIMER: I do not own Teen Titans!
Gosh it's been like what? Two months? I'm terribly sorry for taking this long. Seriously I am. It's just that I had to take this test that would determine my whole High School life! I have been so terribly stressed for months and now I'm even more stressed because I wont know the results for weeks and I didn't even finish it! I had like... 22 more problems to go and I guessed on some! I am so scared! But It's over now and I shouldn't be so stressed about it anymore so yeah... here's the update...
Btw: Starting with dimension 2...
Raven felt like they had been walking for some time now. Certainly longer than what it would take them to reach the edge of the roof. He was trying to tip her off. They weren't going to the roof. They were going somewhere else. Somewhere much farther than what her comfort zone would allow. They suddenly stopped and Raven couldn't wait tO take the blindfolds off. She hated not knowing where she was going
"Alright, you can take them off now." He said.
Raven slowly undid the knot that held her blindfolds together and hesitantly took them off. Holding her breath, she slowly peered her eyes open, waiting for whatever prank that was waiting for them to happen but to her surprise, nothing occurred. She looked around at her surroundings, taking it all in. There was a large blanket spread across a grassy hill with a cooler sitting in the middle of them. The water in the river near them sparkled an orange and yellow color due to the sunset. It was stunning.
"Beast Boy, I-"
"Isn't it great?" He said happily. He stepped closer to the blanket and stretched a hand out for her, urging her to follow.
Raven hesitantly placed her hand on his and followed him. He stood next to her as she took a seat before taking a seat himself. They stared at the sky for a while in, to what Beast Boy felt, comfortable silence. Raven, however, kept nervously fidgeting in her seat, hoping he wouldn't notice.
"Isn't it beautiful?" He asked, without taking his eyes off the sky. "Just like old times huh?"
'Old times?' Raven thought. "Uh, yeah... Like old times."
The sun began to set, painting the sky with beautiful orange, red, and yellow colors. Raven noticed Beast Boy blush into the sky and found herself feeling very uncomfortable. He slowly tried to go unnoticed as he scooched closer to her. She fully turned her head to him at the sudden movement.
"What do you think you're doing." She asked.
"Getting closer to you." He answered sweetly with a bright smile.
She blushed and turned away.
"Beautiful" He said with a boyish grin.
Her head spun around to look at back him.
"Nothing." He quickly answered.
Raven could feel herself starting to felt more and more uncomfortable by the minute. She didn't know what was happening or why he was acting this way with her. She wasn't really sure if she liked how close he was getting.
Beast Boy could sense how tense she was and retreated a little. At that moment, the sun had completely set and they were plunged into complete darkness.
Raven began to stand up and leave but Beast Boy was quick to get up as well and block her path.
"Where are you going?" He asked.
"Home." She replied. She tried to get past him but he kept blocking her path
"Beast Boy, it's over. The sun's down. What more do you want?" She was starting to get irritated. He could tell.
"No, it's not over," He said. "It hasn't even started yet."
"why did you even bring me up here?" She asked.
He froze. "Gee Raven, I thought today was a very special day worth celebrating."
"What are you talking about?"
"Do you even remember what today is?"
"Should I?" She responded, coldly.
Beast Boy was taking back by her answer. How could she not remember? Today had to be the most important day of their relationship and she was treating it like if it was another ordinary day. Maybe even worse. It stung him in the deepest way possible "You know what Raven, if you don't want to be here... then go."
She noticed how hurt he was. She could feel anger and sadness bubbling up inside of him. After all, she was an empath. Still, she didn't get it. One minute he was acting like he hated her, telling her off for being in her room so much and not wanting to be included in their everyday activities, and the next, he was taking her out to places and acting like he was actually there for her.
He sighed and sat back down, a little farther this time, facing away from her with his knees by his chest, playing with small rocks he would find around him. How he wished he was sitting at the shore of the tower. It was his spot. The spot he went to for everything. Where he would clear his mind of all things that seemed to bother him.
Raven slowly took a seat next to him. She didn't know what it was about him that made her see him in a whole other was. This Beast Boy was different from the one she remembered. He showed he cared and how did she repay him? By making him feel horrible.
"Thought you were gonna leave."
She shrugged. "I got nothing better to do."
He let out a weak chuckle. As much as that should of hurt him, he had gotten used to her dry humor. "Glad to hear it."
The two stayed in silence, just watching the night sky. Oddly enough, there were no stars around them. Which is rare when far away from city lights.
From the corner of her eye, Raven caught something glimmering from afar. She slightly turned her head to see what it was. A star croosed across the midnight night reflecting it's light against her eyes. It slowly crossed the sky, leaving a path of light as it traveled. It was a stunning sight. It only lasted a few seconds and as quick as it had come, it disappeared. The rest of the stars miraculously reappeared on the sky and every once in a while, a star would quickly cross the sky. But none compared to the first.
"Is this what you wanted me to see?" She asked. "The star?"
Beast Boy nodded. "Yeah." He looked at her with a smile she had never seen on him before. Hopefull and true. "It's the same that appeared here six months ago... remember?"
She looked back at the sky. "It sure was beautiful."
"Yeah." He said. After another while of starring aimlessly at the sky, he spoke up. "Rae, can I ask you something?"
She looked at him quizzically. "What?"
He hesitated, but asked anyway. "What do you think about... us?"
She blushed. Us? What did he mean by 'us'? Did he even realize he said that? He sure didn't seem affected by it.
Noticing her awkward silence, he added "It just seems like... you're not that into it anymore." His face saddened. "Do you still even want to continue?"
"Beast Boy, I told you a long time ago that even if sometimes it doesn't show, we are friends."
"No... no no no no no." He said shaking his head. "I thought we were... more than friends. I thought we had already had this conversation before. Here. Today. Six months ago!" His voice started to rise. "I thought you thought I was more than that to you! I know you're more than a friend to me!"
Raven's face flushed.
"Well?" He urged.
"I... never knew you... felt that way."
"Never knew I felt that way?! I tell you every day! How can you even say that?!"
By now, Raven had no idea what to respond, so of course, she resulted in self defense. "You have never once told me that before."
He sprung up. "Never?!" Sighing heavily, he decided to calm down a little. "Why are you acting like this all of a sudden?"
"Acting like what?"
"Strange!" He said. "There is no way you missed it when I told you. No. Way."
"Im not acting strange! The only one acting strange here is you! Everyone as a matter of fact! Robin and Starfire had a relationship going on! I'm sure of it! Im even more sure about the fact that Terra didn't live in the tower!"
"Wait, is this about Terra? Rae I told you, it was just a crush."
"No it wasn't just a crush Beast Boy. Whether you choose to admit it or not is up to you, but you had deep feelings for her. And no. It's not about her."
Raven wanted to run. To get as far away as possible from him. At least get to her room. Where you could collect herself once more.
"Nothing. Just.. lets go back to the tower. Maybe you'll find something more entertaining than me. Maybe you should just go back to Terra."
"So it is about her!" He said trying to hide how much her comment hurt him.
"No Beast Boy it's not. It's not about anything. Im not even sure of what 'it' is!"
"It," He said. "Us. Our relationship. That's what 'it' is."
"We don't have a relationship!" She said.
"Are you saying... you want to break up?"
"We were never together!"
His breath hitched. "Ok... I-If that's what you want... Lets just... go back to the tower."
The walk over there was quiet. None would look at the other what so ever during the whole time. She started to feel horrible. All she felt coming off from Beast Boy was crushing her. She had never seen him this upset before. Never. Once they had arrived, they both locked themselves in their respective rooms. Neither feeling like coming out for the next decade.
Raven sat on the edge of her bed, feeling more confused than ever. She glanced around her room and noticed something else she had failed to notice before. On top of one of her shelves, was a giant stuffed chicken, and a penny that was made out to be a necklace.
'That's weird,' She thought. 'I had that in a box in my closet.'
She looked a little more to the side and noticed her mirror. Picking it up, it looked significantly different. No horns. She made the mistake, she would soon be glad for, to turn the mirror around. As soon as her reflection appeared, the mirror glowed white and started to swirl. No red eyes. Within seconds, Raven was sucked in.
Cyborg had just called in a meeting with the entire team and was waiting for every one to be seated. Raven made sure to sit as faraway from Beast Boy as possible. Robin was the last to arrive. He took a seat next to Starfire and Raven.
"So, what's this about?" He asked.
"The portal." Responded Cyborg.
Yes I know the chapters have been short and I apologize. This one is a bit over 2,000. I tried but apparently I'm not so good at detail x) But I am trying to make them longer. Let me clear this up again for those of you who are getting confused. If I write dimension 1, whatever follows is from that dimension. It doesn't change unless I write dimension 2. Even if it's another chapter, it's still the same dimension unless I say other wise.
