Teen Titans in Crete Part 4Starfire yawned, pushing a stray lock of hair out of her eyes. The sun shone through the curtains and fell across the bed. Starfire looked over at the clock where the small green digits read, '9:00am.' She got up and dressed, tiptoeing out of the room so as not to wake Robin. She found Raven sitting on the sofa, sipping a mug of herbal tea and reading a book of poetry. She looked up as Starfire came in. She nodded in greeting before returning to her book. Starfire was used to her friend's silence and sat down beside her, leafing through one of the many brochures that lay on the table. She looked at an illustration on the front of one entitled, 'Sun and Splashes Water Park.'More Like This
"Friend Raven," she said, leaning over towards the violet-headed teen, "Is this place far from here?" Raven put down her book before looking at the brochure Starfire was showing her, "Not too far," she replied, certain of the next question Starfire was bound to ask her.
"Might we go there?" asked Starfire, "Please!

She woke up and looked at the clock. 5:30am. She groaned. 'Not now!' she thought, turning over onto her side. Beast Boy lay with his arms folded behind his head. He gazed up the ceiling. "You awake too?" Raven asked sleepily. Beast Boy nodded.More Like This
"They've been at it for over an hour now," he replied, "It's a wonder you've been able to sleep this long."
"Uggh why this morning?" moaned Raven, clutching her head and screwing her eyes shut in frustration. Beast Boy put his arms around her and drew her closer to him. She buried her head in his chest and tried to block out the noise of the marauding football fans. After about fifteen minutes the noise gradually began to die down as the drunken fans gradually became comatose with their binge drinking.

Teen Titans in Crete Part 2The hot air struck them full in the face like the air of a furnace as they stepped out of the plane onto the tarmac of the Heraklion Airport. Raven squinted into the light, narrowing her eyes in the glare of the sun. Beast Boy put his arm round her, smiling broadly, "Here at last!" he said enthusiastically. Robin and Starfire were the first to walk towards the terminal, followed close behind by Cyborg and finally Beast Boy and Raven. With relief they walked into the terminal and made their way to the baggage reclaim. The large room was packed. The conveyor belt wound its way around the room like a large black snake. Unsure of what to do, Starfire walked over to stand next to Robin, "What do we have to do here?" she asked.More Like This
"This is where we collect our bags," replied Robin. Just as he said this, the bell rung, signalling the start of the conveyor belt and making Starfire jump. The flaps at the far end of the room parted and bags and briefcases of all sizes started to move along the conv

"I put it there this morning for when we're packing," called Cyborg.
It was absolute chaos in the Titans Tower. Cyborg and Beast Boy were arguing about where the sun cream was left while Starfire kept going through her bags, making sure again and again that she had anything. Robin was readying the defence grid of the tower, checking and double checking the security while Raven sat, fully packed and perfectly calm, reading a book. She looked up with a slightly annoyed expression at Beast Boy and Cyborg. "If you even bothered to look, you'd see that the sun cream is on the table right here," she said, pointing to the large blue bottle. Beast Boy and Cyborg grinned sheepishly, "We knew that!" they said in unison. Raven sighed and returned to her book.
At last, everything was packed into the T-car as they

"How's the formula Owl?" he asked.
"I believe this formula will work" Owl held the formula in front of NIGHTS. NIGHTS took it from him as he looked at it with his eyes wide opened. His guts started to wrap in a tight knot.

It was a sunny day in England. The birds were chirping and the fountains in the Victorian type city are flowing glittering water. A blonde adult with her hair flowing down her back was in her house playing her violin. She stopped playing for awhile to think through her childhood memories. 'I'm NIGHTS!' . That name she would never forget. She sighs then put her violin down. She walks to her bedroom mirror to see how much she changed through the years. She took a piece of her hair then started to stroke it with her fingers. "I've changed so much mum" her cell phone started to ring on her dresser drawer. She picked it up then answered it. "Hello?"
'This is her! How are you my child? Is college working for?'

Helen opened her eyes, turning over onto her side. It was still early in the morning but she felt wide awake. She got out of the bed quietly so as not to wake NiGHTS and padded into the bathroom. She switched on the light and froze. Sitting in the corner was the biggest cockroach she had ever seen.
NiGHTS woke with a fright at the sound of her scream. He dashed into the bathroom and was nearly knocked over by his wife who clung to his nightshirt. "What's the matter?" he asked, resting his hand on her back. He was certain there was no imminent danger so he allowed himself to calm down. Even now, the instincts that helped him survive in Nightmare and then in Nightopia were still very much present.
Helen pointed to the corner of the bathroom. NiGHTS followed her gaze and had to fight back a laugh. "It's just a cockroach, sweetheart," he said. He fetched a glass and a sheet of paper from the table in the living room and crept towards the invading insect. He put the g

The sky was beautiful. I guess everyone says that about the last thing they see before they die. And it's a funny thing to accept so willingly, too, especially when you're me.
I floated, or hovered above the grass until I couldn't focus enough to remember to, then trudged forward until my fingers latched onto the gates of the candy kingdom. I smiled ruefully. I was here again. I was here and all I felt was warmth. Warmth from the black gush that drained from my wound, and warmth from the night that begun to fall over another day. I didn't want to have regrets before I died and went to wherever it is Vampire Queens go, so I tried to send a mental apology to Finn and his girlfriend. Though everything around me seemed warm, something against my right cheek was even hotter. Not unpleasant, however, so I leaned to it. It cupped my face. Was it the cosmic owl Ice King blathered about when I'd check on him and found him sleep-talking? My stomach throbbed and I moaned

It had been days since she had worked on the photon resistance serum, as she had dubbed it, and now she had a secondary reason for completing it.

At around late afternoon Finn and Jake returned from the Fire Kingdom. They too had asked and received the same reply as Marceline and Princess Bubblegum had from the Ice King. There were no reports of attacks or large winged monsters there either.
