3: Real

82 4 1

   It looked like we'd been preparing for some type of war. Our meeting room's table was scattered with prototype weapons that Cyborg had been testing out.
   Slade was getting right back into his old tricks. He'd been gone for a while, since we ended that Trigon deal. This has caused our team to kick into high alert. Robin and Cyborg were always trying to figure out how to destroy him for good.
   "I don't know bro. I still think you should let me go beast mode on that fool." Beastboy impatiently tapped his fingers. He turned to Raven and noticed how pale her face had become, even more so than usual.
   "Oh, Rae I was kidding. I'm so sorry." He wrapped his arms around her. I expected Raven to pull away but she stayed. She's still somewhat scared of Beastboy. Even if he actually was protecting her when he turned into a monster.
  "Ahem." Robin interrupted them. They quickly separated and were awkwardly blushing.
   "Sorry to interrupt... whatever that was... but as I was saying, we have to go back to the drawing board. Cyborg can go back to working in the lab and meet here again on Monday."
   "Sure thing, Rob. See y'all later." Cyborg stood, ruffled Beastboy's hair, and left the meeting room.

Three in the morning. It was three in the morning and I was wide awake. I switched on the lamp in my bedroom. There was no reason why I couldn't sleep. Or maybe there was and I just couldn't think of it. I decided to get up and go to the living room. Perhaps watching some Tv would make me tired.

When I got there, I was surprised to see somebody already awake. Said person was watching the new Spider-Man movie. His mask was tossed on the coffee table. He rarely has it off.
"What are you doing up?" Robin asked as I sat next to him on the couch.
"I couldn't sleep." I shrugged. It's fairly normal for him to be up this late, he just typically isn't watching television.
"I bet you're more comfortable in my room, eh?" He teased. "You probably missed me too much."
I was thankful for the dark room with the blue tv light hiding my blush. "Don't flatter yourself. I'm just fine without you."
"Says the love bites on your collar bone." He smirked. I slapped him on the shoulder.
"Those aren't the easiest to hide by the way. Cyborg would kill you if he knew about it." I pushed my hair forward to conceal them.
"Yeah, sorry about that." He chuckled.
"You're lucky I love you." I rolled my eyes. Robin could be such a tease at times.
He pulled me closer to him. "I really am lucky." He tilted my head up and kissed me. Before we dated I never thought he'd be so passionate. But everything he did was so romantic it almost seemed as if we were in a movie. His hands began wandering underneath my cropped T-shirt. He suddenly realized what he was doing. "Sh*t. I know, not here. Sorry." He pulled away embarrassed.
"It's fine. We were both caught up in the moment." I blushed. There was still a tingling feeling left on my skin, longing for his touch again. I quickly shook the thought away and laid my head on his shoulder. He wrapped his arm around my waist and kissed my forehead.
We snuggled under a fuzzy blanket as the movie ended. I decided to move to the other side of the couch. Robin argued at first but after I brought up that Beast-boy could find us, he finally agreed.

"For two people in a relationship they don't seem very touchy." I heard a voice say.
"Are they even still together?"
"Yeah. They definitely are. It's Robin, what do you expect?"
Ouch. That hurt a bit. Are we even a real relationship if we aren't touchy? That can't be in the criteria. I was careful not to open my eyes until I knew everybody was gone.
"Robin. Robin are you awake?" I asked. No response. I kissed his head. "Will you wake up?" I rolled my eyes.
"No. Try the lips instead." he yawned. I fluffed up his hair.
"Too late. It appears you're already awake." I climbed of the couch. He grumbled and sat up.
"Hey, I think we need to talk." I fake smiled. Robin cocked his eyebrow.
"Um, alright. What about?" He grabbed my hands. I heard our teammates in the hallway.
"Not right now." I nodded my head towards the stairs. He looked at my hands and quickly dropped them.
"Well I'm-ah-going to go upstairs." He smiled and walked off. "Yeah. Yeah okay." I sighed.

I was about to knock on Robin's door. I hadn't had the chance to talk to him all day. Hopefully, he'd be free since it was after dinner. I knocked and for a split second thought about going back to my room. But before I got the chance to, somebody answered.
"Star?" Robin asked.
Sh*t. "Oh hey. Are you free to talk now?" I asked. He nodded his head and let me into his room.
"What's up?" He patted the bed, so I'd sit by him.
"A-are we a real relationship?" I sputtered out. He looked at me as if I was stupid.
"Well duh. That's why I call you my girlfriend." He chuckled. "Is that all you wanted to talk about?"
"I overheard our friends this morning. They were commenting on the fact that we're never close or touching around them. Beastboy asked if we were even still together." I started to tear up. It's a pathetic thing to cry about.
"Shhh it's okay." Robin wrapped his arms around me. "I'm sorry I'm not a super touchy person in public. We are real though and I love you." He kissed my forehead.
"Sorry for overreacting. I guess I'm just paranoid." I wiped the tears from my cheeks.
"Don't be sorry. I'm glad you talked to me." He smiled. I laid in his bed with him for a while, just talking. The sun had officially set.
"I think I'm going to go to bed." I started to get up. I felt strong arms holding me back.
"Or you could, you know, stay in here..." Robin suggested.
"Fine. But only because my room is cold." I sighed and snuggled into his arms.
"Sure, that's why."
"Cocky much?" I giggled.
"Sorry." He smirked and started kissing my neck.

Reeee I'll make sure to post more often. K bai
