"You think you're alone, Raven, but you're not…"

These words echoed in Raven's mind as she woke up the next morning with a horrible headache. The day before was a shadow in her mind, a shadow that was just waiting to be reopened. All she wanted to do was forget, but that is always the hardest think in life.

Even though she had felt hurt and broken-hearted, her spirit felt somehow lifted. She didn't feel alone. Not like before where everyone was afraid of her. It was because of him. He had told the most healing thing in her life. Beastboy had revealed a hidden truth. It was the first time anyone had said anything like that to her before…


Little 8 years old Raven fell against the wall. Her father stood before her, his eyes holding the same glint of malice.

"Raven," he said evilly, "You are worth nothing. You never were worth something. And you never will. Forget all your dreams and bow down to my power."

Tears glinting across her pale cheek, she said, "Maybe you're right. Maybe I'm nothing. But at least I know that I'm more than you will be."

Her power burst out of her, shining in the room. She was lifted to the ceiling, while power flooded the room. Trigon shielded his eyes from the light, but he felt tremendous pain. He fled from the room. Raven slowly fell back to the ground, and the darkness of oblivion swallowed her.

End Flashback

Raven slowly crawled out of the bed, the headache decreasing from a loud roar to a gentle whisper. She got to her feet, took a quick shower, and headed to the main room.

Amazingly enough, everyone was awake before her, even Beastboy. They all looked up from their breakfast. Robin, Starfire, and Cyborg had a look of uneasiness.

Beastboy ignored this and walked to the kitchen while saying, "Hey Rae? Had a nice sleep?"

Raven responded lightly, "Not what I had hoped for, but it was okay."

The other titans breathed a sigh of relief. They had not known what mood Raven would have wakened up to. Grouchy or angry was expected. Not light-mooded and a little happy.

Raven took a seat at the dining table, and the eating resumed. She heard something behind her and saw Beastboy set pancakes and herbal tea in front of her.

She blushed as she heard Cyborg say, "Ohhh… BB is making his move on his girl."

Beastboy boy muttered a, "Shut up!" under his breath before taking a seat next to Raven.

Raven was about to take a bite but noticed a certain changling look at her in anticipation. She lowered her fork and asked in an annoyed voice, "Why are you staring at me while I'm trying to eat?"

Beastboy shook his head, as if trying to get out of a daydream. Raven found it amusing as she saw him try to think up an excuse.

"Umm… I was staring at you because… you had syrup on your face... no wait… you haven't eaten a bite… ummm… you … made a disgusted face… wait; you always do that… no… ummm… I don't know… Cyborg told me to!"

All eyes turned to Cyborg. Cyborg sighed and said, "You really are going to believe I told Beastboy to stare at Raven dreamily until she noticed?"

All heads nodded. Cyborg was up on his feet. "Well sorry if I think it is amusing if little dark-haired girl and mister changling like eachother. I only wanted to speed up the process!"

All eyes turned to Raven. She was known to blow up for any remark relating her to Beastboy in some way. She kept her head down, hiding her silent laughter. She straightened her face and through a stern glare at Cyborg. Cyborg saw death and ran for his life to his beloved "TV".

Beastboy thought weirdly, "Man, I didn't know Cyborg told me to do that. I did it because I thought Raven looked pretty in the light."

Raven happened to hear the changling thought and quickly munched down on her food. She noticed in the first bite a sweet taste that had never appeared before in her pancakes. She decided not to say anything until she was done. She quickly got up to leave before she felt a hand touch her shoulder. It was Beastboy.

Everyone except Raven and Beastboy left the room, not wanting to see the pain Raven would inflict on Beastboy.

Beastboy seemed just as shocked seeing his hand on Raven's shoulder. He realized it would be better if he thought of something to say. And quickly before a death glare.

"Umm… Raven… did you like the … I mean what I really meant to say… umm… did you like the pancakes?"

Raven said, not turning around, "They were the best I had," before swiftly leaving the room, leaving Beastboy by himself.

Beastboy gaped at the cape that quickly left his sight. Raven had loved the pancakes. The ones he made. It was a miracle!

He made his way out of the room, heading to his one place of solitude, while Raven hurried away to her room to escape any confrontations with her teammates.
