not when I haven't brought suitable footwear and thick leggings, anyway." "Don't worry," Beast Boy grinned, wrapping his arms around her. "I'll keep you warm." "Stop it," said Raven, unable to conceal a small smile. "People will start staring at us if you do things like that." "There's no one to stare, really," Beast Boy pointed out. "Just those four guys over there, and I don't think they've seen us." "I wonder if we're supposed to get any of them to sign the Book," said Raven. "They look like kids to me, but the Dream Caverns do seem to've brought us straight to them. Why don't you go and spy on them, see what you can find out?" "How do you suggest I do that?" asked Beast Boy. "Can't you perch on that bus stop pole and listen in?" Raven suggested. "Um, I guess so," said Beast Boy. "Okay, then."With that, h
The Book of Love: Chapter 4CHAPTER 4: LAW OF THE JUNGLEThe Dream Caverns brought Beast Boy and Raven to a large room full of computer consoles and scientific equipment. There was an unmistakably futuristic air about the place, which looked like it belonged in some kind of space movie.

y'know, Rae, I think we've been here before." "Yes, I'm getting a sense of familiarity too," Raven agreed. "What d'you reckon - shall we take a quick look around?" "I think we'd better," said Beast Boy.Ten minutes later, they had conducted a thorough search of the park and its surroundings. Sure enough, they both recognised the place fairly well. "That settles it," said Raven. "We know this town, and we've had several adventures here. But the Dream Caverns didn't used to come out in Royal Park, did they?" "Definitely not," said Beast Boy. "They used to come out in a driveway. Maybe that entrance has been closed for some reason, and now there's a new one."
