My eyes flash open as I stare into the darkness. I try to calm my racing heartbeat and sudden shortness of breath but to no use. I'm unable to move, frozen in fear, chained to the bed. My wrists already sting as the shackles rub my skin raw. Again. My hair is wet as it's plastered to my sweat-drenched forehead. Shadows look at me eerily and the lack of light makes me feel faint. My eyes focus as much as they can with the random black dots clouding my vision. His golden mask reflects a single flash of light and I open my mouth to scream only for no sound to come out. I look down to see my blood pouring from my slit throat. The more I try to scream the faster the blood pours.
The flash of gold near the wall catches my eye. A sinister smile forms as Slade begins to walk closer, a serrated knife drenched in red placed between his fingertips as he quickly flicks my blood off of it.
"Beast Boy won't always be around. He can't protect you forever and he can't save you now

I just finished having a "discussion" with Robin, more like me screaming and him not listening. He thinks that it's extremely important that Terra stays only because I need to let go of my grudge or else it will eat me up inside. What a bunch of crap. I know he has his own angle. But I'm mostly pissed that she still likes me after all that. Not to mention she follows me around, right now she's walking beside me to the living room. I should probably apologize for shoving her to the ground though.
"Hey, I'm sorry for shoving you to the ground. You kinda surprised me." Maybe I shouldn't have apologized. Too late now.
"I'm sorry too." Which apology should I check off? The dumping me thing therefore ruining my plan to make Raven jeaolous, the trying to kill me thing, the trying to kill me a second time, the trying to kill me a third time or breaking my heart when I thought she was Raven that was returning home but wasn't.
"For everything." She add

I wipe the wet back of my wrist on my ripped denim shorts as two more droplets of sweat run down my temple. The bright sun is shining in through the exposed wall; the rays of light clearly illuminate the dust particles circulating through the air. The rhythmic clang of Beast Boy's swinging hammer stops as he turns towards me. His white smile sends chills down my spine as I rest my own hammer down by my side. His white tank top clings to his body as beads of sweat on his arms and neck threaten to make my knees wobble. His jeans hang loose (not baggy) as his legs bring the rest of him towards me.
"Want to take a break?" He grabs the cold bottle of water that is cradled among the rubble of what used to be my room. He twists off the cap and takes a long swig of the chilled drink.
"Nah, well yea. Okay. Why not?" I smile as I look around at the new construction site. We moved all of my furniture into the hallway and Beast Boy's room. Now my floor is littered with plywood, pla

"What are we going to do?" I ask after hours of trying to trace the tidbits of evidence mixed in with her makeup. Robin doesn't answer me, which means he either didn't feel the need to answer me, he is still coming up with a plan or he has no fucking clue what we should do.
"Robin." I plead but he just stands there staring at the computer screen. I feel useless standing here especially since we aren't coming up with anything. I become agitated again and storm outside. There is actual snow falling and the rocks on the island have a thin ice coating. As I run down to the shore, there's a constant crunching of ice as my feet hit the ground. It's like déjà vu'. I whip my head back and forth to loosen up the muscles in my neck. Once I get to the pier, I roam the numerous blocks. They begin to look the same but I continue marching on. Every now and then I think I see her. A wisp of her violet hair disappearing around a corner, or the edge of he

Imagine, every single person is paired up in this tower except for me! I mean ya Bee and I had a thing for awhile. But it wasn't ever gonna last. I had that crush on Jinx or maybe I still do but I dunno. Ya she isn't a villain anymore but it's not like she doesn't have a thing for that Kid Flash. But I don't wanna be in a relationship at the moment anyway but that's the thing about BB and Rae. They are way beyond the I'm-your -girlfriend/boyfriend-getting-to-know-you thing; as weird as it sounds they're soul mates. Raven even told me that she saw her future twin daughters. It can't get much more real than that. Even now, Beast Boy is scarfin on some cereal and before Raven can even open her mouth to speak BB is already handing her a spoonful. She just smiles and takes a bite then goes back to reading. When BB shifts his weight Rae just adjusts to his position. They like move as one and it's gettin kinda weird.
Rob and Star went out to "search for new appliances for

We sit in the dark on our little island. It feels like ten minutes, but when she asks what time it is I realize we've been out here for hours. I realize she might be cold, even if it's July it's still almost one o'clock in the morning. I should have asked earlier, I'm so bad at this boyfriend thing.
"Hey, are you cold?" I ask.
"What? No, I'm fine. You have been keeping me warm, actually." She smiles up at me. Maybe I'm not so bad at this boyfriend thing after all. But just in case:
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah, you really are like my little furnace." She looks up at me like she wants to say something, but she stays quiet. I wonder what she wants to ask me, or maybe tell me. If it's advice I could really use it. Some critiquing would be nice too.

He knows I want to ask him something. But he doesn't know what; at least I don't think he does. I wonder what he would feel about all my questions. Some are simple, like if I could call him Garfield instead of Beast Boy; not all t

Raven is screaming in her sleep. It shakes her whole body as she convulses with screams of sheer terror. I shake and scream her name until she finally wakes up. She continues to hyperventilate as tears stream down her flushed face. I have her leaning against my body with my legs wrapped around hers and my hands rubbing her leg. I wish I could wrap my arms around her so she could feel secure but thanks to this shit I'm wrapped in, I can't.
"Raven. It's ok. It was just a dream. Remember? That happened a long time ago. It's ok. It's all over." I keep repeating these statements over and over and soon her sobbing has quieted. Cyborg comes into the room. He sees her and shakes his head sadly.
"Again?" He asks sorrowfully and I nod.
"Is she .ok?" Terra asks tentatively. I don't answer because I'm not sure. She gets like this every year. Before we were together no one knew what to do. We didn't understand what was happening until we realized what the date was. On the anniversary, sh
