Beast Boy was in the Watchtower helping Zatanna and Dr. Fate decorate. He was happy; Christmas was his favorite time of the year. He was going to spend it with M’gann on the watchtower. It was going to be a great Christmas.
But still Beast Boy couldn't help but feel sad. Nightwing, Robin, and Batgirl were going to spend Christmas with Batman; Cassie was going to spend Christmas with her mom, Bart and Artemis were going to have Christmas with the Allen and the West families. Beast Boy sat down on a box of decorations and sulked. Aqualad was going to Atlantis, Zatanna and Dr. Fate were even going to spend Christmas together. But Beast Boy; his mom was taken from him before he joined the team. He had no immediate family to celebrate Christmas with, and was starting to feel crummy.
“Beast Boy?” a voice came from behind him. Beast Boy turned around to see Superman behind him.
“Hey” he said with a small smile on his face. Superman sat next to him “You look a little down. Do you want to talk about it?”
Beast Boy looked up at the Man of Steel. “I love Christmas, everything about it is awesome. But knowing people are going to spend time with their families this year is a little tough when yours isn’t around anymore. Jamie and Virgil are going to spend Christmas at their homes with their families, and …”
Superman put a hand on his shoulder “Beast Boy, I heard about what happened to your mom before you joined the team. Believe it or not my parents that live on that farm in Smallville aren’t my real parents.”
“They’re not?” Beast Boy’s eye widened.
Superman stared out the window of the Watchtower into space “No. My parents died when my home world Krypton exploded.”
“Whoa” Beast boy said.
Superman continued “But you know what, I found a new family. The Kent’s, and then I found The League. M’gann told me about how she took you in when no one else would. It seems to me that you have a great family right here. And we’re gonna be having our own little Christmas party, here. I’m sure everyone would love it if you joined us.” Superman smiled at the changeling.
Beast Boy gave Superman a hug and smiled. “Thanks Superman I feel better now.” He ran off to his room in the Watchtower.
Superman smiled and walked in the other direction.
