Beast Boy Of The Junkyard

 
 
Chapter Five-Flashbacks
 

"We have to go and save him!" said Tech.

"And how do you plan on doing that genius?" asked Sarah.

"With this!" said Tech.

He then ran to a pile of junk, got inside a car, pressed a button and the next thing you know the car sprouted arms and legs...which were made out of trash cans.

"You gotta be kidding me, that thing will never work!" said Sarah.

"Why not?" asked Tech wanting to know why she didn't think his robot was goog enough.

She then poked it and the whole thing fell apart.

"Because it's a piece of junk that's why not!" said Sarah.

The instant it fell the trunk opened up and out flew Naru running out of there and the junkyard.

Jenna then walked in with her teddy bear.

"Is it safe yet?" asked Jenna hugging her teddy bear.

"Yes Jenna, it's safe." said Sarah.

"Where's Beast Boy? And why does Jillian look so sad?" asked Jenna hugging her bear tighter.

Max, Tech, and Sarah couldn't help but stare at their feet.

"The Titans came...and took him away." said Max.

"What? No. It can't be true! It can't be...I don't want it to be." said Jenna with water filled eyes.

"We're sorry but it is." said Sarah.

"But-But he saved me, when we first met." cried Jenna.

They all looked a each other, in some way or form Beast Boy had saved all of their lives.

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Jenna had just lost her parents and was wandering the streets. Jenna became hungry so decided she had to dig through some trash to find some food. She sobbed to herself as she dug through the trash but gasped in fright when she heard growling.

Down at the other end of the street were two of the biggest stray dogs in all of Jump City, and frankly they didn't look too friendly. Jenna was so scared she kept backing up until she hit a fence. Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

Jenna started to whimper and curled by the fence in fear. "Please. Won't somebody save me?"

Apparently her question had been answered. "ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAARR!"

A green African lion had jumped the fence and landed in front of Jenna meaning to protect her. The lion ran up to the dogs and started to hit them with his paws. These dogs knew when they were licked and ran with their tails in between their legs.

The green lion then changed into a green skinned boy.

"Hey, you okay?" asked the boy.

"P-P-Please. D-D-Don't eat me!" cried Jenna.

"Whoa! Whoa! Hey now listen, I don't eat humans, I'm not a canabal you know. Besides, I'm a vegitarian." said the boy.

"You're a vegetable?" asked Jenna.

The boy face faulted.

"NO! Vegitarian, it means I don't eat anything that has meat in it. So...why aren't you with your parents?" asked the boy.

He regretted his words when he saw the girl break down.

"Hey, hey, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you cry." Said the boy.

"My mommy and daddy died." cried Jenna.

"Oh. Well I know what that's like. So I guess that makes you an orphan huh? Well come on. I know quite a few orphanages, maybe one will take you in. By the way, I'm Beast Boy." said Beast Boy starting to give her a piggy back ride.

"I'm Jenna."

So Beast Boy tried to find an orphanage for Jenna but failed.

"Dude, I can't believe they're all full. Well Jenna do you have any relatives that live here?" asked Beast Boy.

Jenna shook her head no. "My parents were only childs and my grandparents died a while ago."

"Well I know I might not be much but you can live with me if you want." said Beast Boy.

Jenna smiled and nodded.

"Okay then, from this point on I'll be your new papa. But just don't call me that when there are other people around you know." Said Beast Boy.

"So how long will you take care of me?" asked Jenna.

"How long would you like?" asked Beast Boy.

"Forever!" said Jenna.

"Forever huh? You and me together, will be...forever you'll see. We two can be good company, you and me. Yes, together we two. Together that's you, forever that's me. We'll always be good company, you and me. Yes, together we'll be, together you and me, will be...forever, you'll see. We'll always be good company, you and me, just wait and see." How's that sound Jenna? Jenna?" asked Beast Boy.

He then realized that she fell asleep and gave a small smile.

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Max's flashback...

You see Max in the middle of a street not looking too good. Max hadn't eaten in days. It had finally gotten to him and had collapsed in the street.

"Somebody...please! Help me." said Max weakly.

The next thing he knew some fruit was dropped in front of him. "Huh?" said Max weakly.

"Do you think you can feed yourself big guy?" asked a voice.

Max looked up and saw Beast Boy.

"AAAAAGH! AN ELF!" screamed Max.

"I'M NOT AN ELF!" shouted Beast Boy.

"Oh. Then what are you?" asked Max.

"I'm a shapeshifter, listen do you have the strenght to eat or not?" asked Beast Boy.

"You kidding me? All I got is strength." said Max right before he dug in with Cyborg gusto.

When he was done he turned to Beast Boy. "Thanks, but why did you do that?"

"Dude, you were in trouble, whatever reason do I need?" asked Beast Boy.

"Well from this day forth I'm in you debt man." said Max.

"Huh?" asked Beast Boy.

"You saved my life. And a martial artist always repays his debts." said Max.

"Your a martial artist?" asked Beast Boy.

"Yep. So you have a name?" asked Max.

"Yeah, but you can call me Beast Boy." said Beast Boy

"Cool. My name's Max." said Max.

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Sarah's flashback...

You see an apartment building and apparently a lot of yelling was coming from it. You can plainly see a lot of things like plates and fine china and other things you can get hurt from. You hear a very mad voice shout out "AND JUST WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING YOU LITTLE BITCH?". You then see Sarah run out of the building.

"I-I-I just can't take it anymore! Anywhere is better than this!" shouted Sarah.

She ran down the street and she kept on running. She kept on running until she ran into everyone's favorite shape shifter causing both of them to fall down.

"Oh sorry." Said Sarah.

"It's okay I should've seen you coming with how fast you were runn...hey, what happened to you? Your face is all bruised. Who did this to you?" asked Beast Boy.

"Someone who I vow I will never see again." said Sarah.

"Oh, well then where're you heading?" asked Beast Boy.

"I...don't know. I don't really any place I can go." said Jenna.

"Well it wouldn't be very nice of me to just let you sleep on the streets so why don't you just come with me? It isn't the best of places but it's shelter." said Beast Boy.

"Well okay, it looks like I have no choice but to trust you." said Sarah.

"You'll trust me of your own free will in time...with any hopes er I mean hope." said Beast Boy.

"You don't have very good grammar do you?" asked Sarah.

"Nope, afraid not. By the way I'm Beast Boy." said Beast Boy.

"I'm Sarah." said Sarah.

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Tech's flashback...

Tech was being beaten up by a bunch of bullies three times his height. Tech was on the ground his body covering something.

"Aw look, faty's trying to protect his little invention." said one of the bullies.

"Let's show him what happens to guys like that." said another.

The next thing you know all the bullies were kicking Tech.

But the next thing you know they screaming like little school girls because of a green gorilla charging at them. The green gorilla then changed back to Beast Boy and walked over to Tech.

"Hey there dude. Need some help?" asked Beast Boy offering his hand.

Tech took it. "Thanks, how did you do all of that stuff?" asked Tech.

"I'm a changeling. Exactly what were you protecting anyways dude?" asked Beast Boy.

Tech showed him something that looked like a television set.

"It's my latest invention. It doubles as a television set and a computer, although I can't seem to get the internet on it." said Tech.

The whole thing then fell apart in his hands.

"It still has some bugs to work out." said Tech.

"So what's your name?" asked Beast Boy.

"...You can call me Tech. Everyone else does." said Tech.

"You can call me Beast Boy, hence the powers." said Beast Boy.

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Naru's flashback...

Naru was screaming as he was falling. Why or how he was falling he didn't know, one minute he was in his favorite tree the next thing you know something hit his neck which felt like a bee's sting and everything went dark. The next thing you know he was falling and screaming his head off.

Then a green dinosaur flew by and picked him up before he hit the ground. When they landed the dino changed into Beast Boy.

"Don't worry dude, I won't eat you. I'm a vegitarian." said Beast Boy.

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

Jillian had just been kicked out of her god parents house who said they didn't want her. She was feeling pretty lonely not to mention hungry, not having any money she was forced to resort to the bad stuff...stealing.

She saw a guy who was selling apples.

"Who sells apples anymore?" asked Jillian.

Meanwhile on the other side of the busy street a guy was selling melons, Beast Boy and Naru were on top of the tarp which acted as a roof for the melons.

"Okay, you ready buddy?" asked Beast Boy.

Naru nodded.

"Watermelons, no fresher watermelons in all of Jump City." said the merchant.

Naru then hung below and grabbed a melon.

"Hey you stupid monkey! Get away from my melons!" shouted the merchant.

Naru made a face at the merchant whichcaused him to unleash a whole chain of curse words.

Naru put the melon down and the merchant placed it with the others only to notice that another one of them was missing.

"Good job Naru. And now partner we feast." said Beast Boy splitting the melon.

Beast Boy then caught something out of the corner of his eye. It got his full attention, he looked over at the other end of the street and saw the most beutiful girl he had ever seen...Jillian.

"Wow." was all Beast Boy could manage to say before he got into a daydreamy typed state.

Naru waved his hand in front of Beast Boy's face and he didn't even flinch. So Naru just shrugged his shoulders and stole Beast Boy's watermelon while he was distracted.

But then BB's eyes widened as he saw what was about to happen.

"Nobody steals from my cart and gets away from it!" shouted the merchant as he grabbed her hand. It looked like as if he were about to stab her arm with a knife when a hand caught his fist.

"Thank you kind sir for finding my beloved sister." said Beast Boy.

"Sister? You two look nothing alike Mr. Green Skin." said the merchant.

"She's...my adopted sister! Yeah that's it!" said Beast Boy.

"What're doing?" whispered Jillian.

"Saving your butt, what's it look like ?" Asked Beast Boy.

"Exactly why is it she's trying to steal from me?" asked the merchant.

"I'm afraid she's a bit sick in the head." said Beast Boy.

Even though he only whispered it Jillian still heard it and scowled.

Beast Boy then took an apple on the cartfrom behind himself and handed it to the merchant.

"Oh well no harm done. Come on sis, time to see the doctor." said Beast Boy pushing Jillian.

"Oh hello doctor." said Jillian to Naru.

"No, not that doctor." said Beast Boy.

Naru had the most confused look on his face.

"Come on Naru! Move your ring tailed butt!" said Beast Boy.
