We had just gotten through battling that jerk, Adonis, and all of us were pretty worn out.

"I think I'm gonna hit the hay, Titans." Robin said yawning.

"Please Robin, why will you be hitting the hay? Has it angered you in some way?" Poor Starfire, she didn't quite understand metaphors.

Robin started to chuckle, "No Star,'hit the hay' means go to bed."

"Oh, I understand now. I will too participate in the hay hitting."

"I think I'm in need of a recharge myself." Cyborg added.

"Night guys." The three titans said.

"Night." Raven and I responded.

When they left I turned to Raven and started to talk. "You going to bed, Rave?"

"Yeah, but I need a shower first. Every time we fight Adonis I feel dirty." She shivered, and of course I had to laugh at her.

"Well it's true. He's always hitting on me and it's gross."

"Yeah, he shouldn't be doing that. Not that I'm jealous or anything... You could like him if you wanted I guess... I mean why would I be jealous... I'm not... I was just saying that-" She cut me off, and I'm glad she did, I was rambling on like an idiot.

"Okay Beast Boy, that's enough. I'm going to go take a shower now, goodnight."

When she left I groaned disappointed in myself for being so stupid. "I guess I'll go to bed now."

When I walked past the bathroom I heard something. It sounded like... singing? I pressed my ear against the door so I could hear a little better.

"It's where my demons hide, it's where my demons hide. Don't get to close it's dark inside. It's where my demons hide, it's where my demons hide."

"Raven's singing? Raven can sing?!" Her voice was raspy and low, although it could get higher at some points. She sounded like she should be a R&B singer. For a half-demon she sure had a lot of soul! Bad pun? "Wow, she's amazing!"

I listened to her sing some more before I was interrupted. "Beast Boy?"


"What are you doing outside of the bathroom?" Cyborg looked confused.

"I could ask you the same thing!"

"I was in the kitchen when I heard you talking and... Who's singing?"


"You're kidding right?" I shook my head. Cyborg then pressed his ear against the door.

"There was a girl named Annie, she had a very pretty face, and not the way you think so, let me see if I can try to explain it. She had a smile that could light up the room, .and if she moved it'd be moving in you, but she wasn't like a magazine, she was just plain Jane and her name was Annie. She never looked in the mirror, she never liked what she would see, and even if I tried to tell her, she never listened to a word I'd say.

She always wanted what she never had, but never had what she needed so badly. Someone telling her she was fine and that's not right and it's why I'm saying. Annie don't be shy here, Annie don't just lie there, looks don't make the world go round, but it comes around. Annie don't be shy here, Annie please don't cry here, I always have to stop myself. Cause you're beautiful."

"Oh wow." Cyborg was shocked.

"Told ya!" We then heard the water turning off.

"Bye!" Cyborg yelled as he ran off. Raven came out of the bathroom in a robe and her hair wrapped in a towel.

"Ahhhhh!!!" She screamed. "Beast Boy, what ARE you doing?!"

"I was going to my room!" I screamed terrified covering my face for protection.

"Well you scared me half to death!"

"I'm sorry."

"Whatever." She started to walk towards her room.

"Hey Rae, you think you could sing me a lullaby sometime?" She stopped in her tracks and turned around.

"Excuse me?" Her face was paler than normal. With that I ran off, and left her in the hall, shocked and confused.
