Just a little reminder, I don't own any of the characters and stuff. Also if you don't like it don't read it. So don't e-mail me complaining about the subject matter.

Chapter 1

It was raining outside. We had just beat Dr. Light and Raven was just giving me a pain in the ass. Why is it every time I try to get her to laugh she just has to get pissed off at me? She just makes me so mad. I work just as hard on the team as she does and she still treats me like I'm some loser. I'm Beast Boy damn it. I deserve a little respect. I put my life on the line everyday and she treats me like dirt. Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, it was raining outside and Raven had put me in a bad mood so I ran out of the tower to get away from everyone. I just wasn't in the mood.

So I started walking downtown and I ended up in the park. It was empty because of the foul weather so I had the whole place to my self. I walked over to my favorite spot and sat down on the rock next to a tree that I planted the first time I visited the city as a child. I got comfortable and watched the rain fall over the bay. I know a lot of people don't like rainy days but I just love them. It is so much quieter and allows me time to collect my thoughts. I could feel the water drip from the leaves and roll onto my body. The feeling was very calming and sort of enlightening. The way the water is one with the tree and then one with myself makes me feel like I am getting closer to my roots with primal power and all.

Then I heard some rustling in the bushes to my right. It startled me and I jumped from my spot to investigate. As I walked through the bushes I tripped over a girl. She was bloody, bruised and in tears. My eyes must have widened to the size of dinner plates at the horrific site. She seemed as shocked as I was but before either of us could say anything a man burst through the line of bushes ahead of me; he was swinging his fists and nearly hit me when I ducked and rolled out of his way. He suddenly started screaming at the girl and grabbed her by the arm. He threw her up against the tree not even noticing that I was there. I could hear the girl muttering "please don't hurt me, please don't hurt me" over and over again.

I suddenly felt an explosion of rage bellow from deep within my heart. I couldn't take watching this for a second longer. "ENOUGH!"

The man froze in his tracks.

"I don't know who you people are but I can see who has gotta go. So buddy, if you don't want to get hurt you need to turn around and leave now!" And Robin thinks he is the only one who can be a tough guy. Hehe

The man turned around slowly and looked me up and down. "Look kid, leave. I wouldn't want to have to beat two kids today. Bad for karma." He then took a swing at the girl knocking her flat on her back. After he kicked her he charged at me and started swinging. It was nothing for a Teen Titan to dodge. I almost feel sorry for him.

When I turned into a gorilla and threw him across the park, the look on his face was priceless. After I finished with him I ran and tended to the girl. She was badly beaten and needed immediate medical attention. I opted to go to the tower rather then across town to the hospital. When I picked her up off of the park's grassy hill and felt her warm blood quickly flowing down my arm and legs. I periodically glanced down at her on the flight to the tower and couldn't help but stare at her face. It was heart breaking to see such a beautiful face stained with tears streaming down her cheeks slowly mixing with blood from all of the open wounds on her face. I was wondering how I was going to explain this to Robin when I landed on the roof. Luckily the infirmary is on the top floor so I didn't have to deal with any of the others.

I had to break out my old medical text book; Robin made me keep it handy just in case of an emergency. The funny thing was I didn't even know anything about this girl. Well, she was pretty. Anyway, I had to get her fixed up and taken care of. Unfortunately, as a safety precaution I had to hand-cuff her to the bed just in case if it was some sort of scam to get into the tower. She needs some sleep now; she'll be okay. I'll check up on her tomorrow.
