“One moment unstuck other stuck!”-Deyth Banger
Raven launched into the air, narrowly missing the sticky red trap that rocketed towards her. Black energy crackled at her fingertips, and Raven muttered her mantra. “Azarath, Mentrion, Zinthos!”
The energy grew and warped into a fist, launching itself at the irritating, masked thief. Red X dodged it, much to her ire.
“Missed me, birdie.”
Raven scowled. A barrage of starbolts rained down from above, spurring Red X to leap across the rooftop and out of range.
The ever irritating thief had decided once again to attempt to rob some stupid corporation Raven hardly cared about. Which left the Titans chasing after him, ruining her relaxing night and interrupting her reading, something she did care about.
Everyone else was pretty peeved off as well, given by the cloud of annoyance pulsating in the air. The intensity of it was slowly beginning to give her a headache, and Raven wanted nothing more than to catch the bastard and go home. But Red X was a slippery villain, and had a nasty habit of getting away.
And every time that happened, their night became a whole lot worse.
Raven shook her head and zipped towards Starfire, her dark energy mingling with the blazing starbolts in an attempt to better subdue the thief. Cannon blasts echoed among the streets, accompanied by Cyborg’s frustrated growls and curses as Red X leaped nimbly aside.
“This is too easy,” Red X said, yawning exaggeratedly. He launched some of his sticky red x’s at them, landing a hit on Cyborg. It began sparking on contact, bringing the cybernetic teen down. There was a shout, then Robin was upon him. The two grappled, fists swinging.
“Azarath, Mentrion, Zinthos!”
Raven conjured up more black tendrils at his feet, trying to snare the wayward villain. Red X dodged them of course, landing a hefty kick into Robin’s chest in the process. A few things happened at once, then.
Beast Boy exploded from a pile of rubble, his green form in the shape of a tiger. Raven surrounded her fist in a ball of black energy, launching herself towards Red X.
Raven wasn’t really sure what happened next. One second, she was flying towards Red X, the next, a blur of green collided with her and sent her sprawling.
She landed on the ground in a heap, the weight of the tiger regressing back to the weight of Beast Boy sprawled on top of her. Raven groaned.
Well, that hurt.
“Rae?” Beast Boy’s voice was low and husky, and he sounded a little dazed. She blinked, his concerned expression coming into view.
He was right on top of her, his face only inches from hers. Suddenly, the air felt hot and stuffy, and Raven almost forgot how to breath.
Had his eyes always been this pretty?
She’d always known them to be green, but up close, she could see the valleys and forests of greens swirling there. They shifted and changed as he stared, constantly evolving to the pace of his thoughts and emotions. It was enchanting, really.
Raven blinked again. “Hmm?”
She forced herself to nod, struggling to wiggle out of his grasp. “Y-yeah, I’m fine. Can you get off of me now?”
Beast Boy winced. “I would, but I uh…I think I’m stuck.”
“What do you mean, stuck?” she asked. Raven craned her neck, trying to see what Beast Boy could possibly have been referring to, when she saw it. A red stripe banded his arm, looking very much like the same color red as the x-traps belonging to the very Red X himself. Raven let her head fall back against the concrete and let out a groan.
This day just had to get weirder, didn’t it?
“Can we at least get off the ground? This is…awkward…”
She could practically feel his blush, his embarrassment was that intense. He stammered some unintelligible phrases in agreement, and proceeded to attempt to push himself and her into a sitting position.
Raven tried to help, she really did, but it quickly became apparent that her arms were bound with the sticky red substance that held the two of them together, thus making her mobility limited.
Well, this wasn’t going to work. Raven heaved a sigh and willed her powers to come bubbling to the surface. Tendrils of black curled and tickled at her skin, and she muttered her mantra under her breath. “Azarath, Mentrion, Zinthos!”
Just like that, she pushed them upright. Now that she was off of the ground, Raven could get a better bearing on the extent of their situation.
They were very much stuck together; though that was nothing new. The last time this happened, however, they were back to back. This time…
Raven flushed. The x-trap bound them tightly together, and there was no real stretch room. Unless Beast Boy transformed, but she doubted that would make things less…weird. And things were certainly weird enough, as it was.
Though they were now upright, their position was still awkward at best. Raven was practically straddling Beast Boy, thanks to the stupid x-trap. Their legs were entangled together, and she had to lean back to keep her nose out of the crook of his neck. Her arms were bound uselessly to her sides, while he had at least one free arm.
Luck of the draw, she supposed.
Raven sighed. Why did these things always happen to her?
“Beast Boy? Raven? Are you guys…okay?”
They both turned to see Robin standing over them, a bemused expression tickling his features. She took a little bit of satisfaction in the small little red x’s strapping his skin and uniform, but a scowl still tainted her features.
“Does it look like we’re okay?”
He opened his mouth to answer, but Cyborg beat him to the punch.
“Well, BB seems to be enjoying himself!”
Beast Boy cringed, embarrassment pouring off of him. He refused to meet her gaze and leaned away from her, wriggling against their bonds. “Just cut us loose!” he snapped. Raven felt his heart pounding in his chest, and she was pretty sure his ears were turning red.
Worse yet, she could feel her own face burning, too.
Robin produced one of his bird-a-rangs and sliced through the x-trap with ease, allowing them to fall apart. Beast Boy sprang away immediately, ducking his head and marching off towards the tower. Raven bit her lip and watched him go, an array of thoughts plaguing her mind.
Did…did Beast Boy like her?
Here we are! Prompt number two. XD I figured this would be entertaining, and I certainly loved writing it! So enjoy. :)
