Strangely enough, it was Starfire who noticed it first.
During an epic showdown with Doctor Light, Raven and Starfire had teamed up to take him down. The empath kept him at bay as the alien princess fired starbolt after starbolt at their enemy while their other teammates were currently out of commission.
Only once they had him in custody, and the Titans decided to go for some celebratory pizza, did she finally bring attention to it.
”Friend Raven, have your injuries not yet healed?” The flame haired princess voiced her concerns, her brows furrowed in worry.
“What injuries, Star?” Raven looked down at her own body, scanning for any dried blood or bruises she might have missed.
Starfire then pointed at the empath’s long, bare, shapely legs. “There are many discolorations on your skin, as well as…bite marks?”
Every other Titan at the table paused in what they were doing, looking up to survey Raven with curious expressions. Meanwhile, the demoness knew exactly what her friend had implicated and, as a result, felt her face go aflame from the neck up, all the way to the tips of her ears. She immediately used her cloak to cover her legs.
“I-I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Raven stammered, narrowing her eyes at the table while trying to ignore the heat from the stares she received.
“They are there, on your thighs, all along the inside and around to the back. I saw them during our battle today,” Starfire pushed, gazing pointedly at the empath’s pale legs.
“Did you say bite marks, Star?” Cyborg raised an eyebrow.
She nodded in response. “Yes. They appear to be in small, red crescent moons, as if done by teeth. The bruises are not unlike the ones Robin enjoys leaving on my neck when we are doing the making out.”
The Boy Wonder’s cheeks reddened. “S-Starfire!” He exclaimed, eliciting a look of confusion from his girlfriend.
“You sayin’ Rae’s got hickeys on her thighs?” Cyborg leaned forward, using his cybernetic eye to zoom in on a very uncomfortable Raven.
“Are they not battle wounds?”
Starfire gasped suddenly as realization dawned on her, and then her eyes flitted towards the changeling who was currently stuffing his face with so much pizza that his cheeks had puffed out.
Beast Boy pretended his teammates didn’t exist, and ravenously attacked more food so that he couldn’t make more than a muffled sound when he spoke. All but Raven were gawking at him in shock.
“You know you’re gonna run out of slices eventually, right?” Cyborg informed his friend in a deadpan manner.
The changeling shrugged, still munching on the food in his mouth.
Robin sighed and brought his fingers to his throbbing temple. “Of all the things I didn’t want to know about over dinner…”
“Is he being the rough with you, Raven?” Starfire shot Beast Boy a glare while comforting her friend.
Raven rolled her eyes, disgruntled, and muttered under her breath, “More like, not rough enough…”
Beast Boy gulped his food down and scratched the back of his head, choosing to stare out the window rather than at any of his other teammates. He refused to comment.
Cyborg just chuckled and shook his head. “You sure you’re still a vegetarian, B?” He quipped, nudging the shapeshifter suggestively while wiggling his brows.
If Beast Boy were capable of turning other colors, he’d have been cherry red instead of green.
Always with a weakness to Cyborg’s taunts, Garfield wasn’t able to take it anymore, and he had remained silent for as long as possible. However, he couldn’t let this stand, even if it did go against Raven’s wishes.“I can’t help it, okay?! She’s got these great legs, and where her legs meet her back…”
He trailed off reluctantly as Raven fixed him with a flabbergasted glare, her pale face flushed red from heat. Was the pizza parlor always this hot?
“You’d do the same and you know it!” He barked at Victor helplessly, his eyes darting from the empath to the smug, cybernetic man.
Raven stood up abruptly. slamming her hands against the table. “That’s it,” she said through gritted teeth, opening up a portal. “I’m leaving.” She then vanished within it, and the portal closed.
“We have upset her…,” Starfire pouted, guilt ridden.
“I’ll go check on her,” Robin surmised, standing up.
Beast Boy slammed his forehead repeatedly against the table, groaning miserably. “No. I think you guys did enough damage. I have to handle this,” he informed them coldly.
He then morphed into a green hawk and took off.
“You think he’s gonna cheer her up?” Robin asked skeptically.
Cyborg patted his leader on the shoulder. “Did you see those teeth marks? My guess is he’s gonna plant his face between her legs, and that cheers up plenty of people,” he explained, taking Robin by surprise with his sudden vulgarity.
Starfire sighed, slumping forward as she cradled her chin with the palms of her hands. “I must admit that, for the first time in a long time, I am quite jealous. May we go home now, Robin, so that I too can be cheered up?”
Cyborg threw his head back in an uproar of laughter, all the while Robin sputtered on the spot, his tongue seemingly tied in knots.
How does Mika keep his tail warm in winter? Does he have his own tail jumper or does it grow fur and become really fluffy?
Mikhael’s tail/wings/claws/etc. can all appear or disappear at will, meaning if they want to blend in with humans they can. and plus, Mika isn’t really bothered by the cold or hot, so no need for tail-warmers lol
(it’s also a faux scorpion tail, so it’s covered by a bone-like exoskeleton)
