Well, here's the promised next chapter! Thanks for the nice reviews! Also, sorry for Soul's OOC-ness last chapter. And, by the way, there will be some slight M content. Nothing serious, I assure you; it's just a few phrases and, how should I put this, suggestions. So, yeah... I have nothing more to say. Enjoy!
When Maka woke up the next morning, she was immediately out of bed; it was the day of her first date. Of course, it was only 7:15am. She still had 9 hours and 45 minutes until it was actually time for said date.
Sighing, Maka got dressed in her usual school clothes; a white button-up shirt under a light yellow vest, a green tie with white stripes, a short, red plaid skirt and black boots with white belts on them.
Upon walking into the living room, she saw that Soul was still passed out on the floor.
Her guess was that he'd been shocked at who'd asked her out. But that was wrong; actually, he was shocked that she was getting to go on her first date before he did.
Maka rolled her eyes, then kicked Soul in the side, "Soul! Wake up! It's time for school!" Soul sat bolt upright and yelled, "Beefsteak!" "Ugh," said Maka, "figures you'd be dreaming about food!"
Ignoring her comment, Soul stood up, and proceeded to scratch his, private area.
"Soul!" yelled Maka, who was now very annoyed.
"What? I have a rash!"
"It's your own fault!"
"How is it my fault? You're the one who left me there!"
"Yeah, but you're the one who pissed his pants!"
"No, you shut up!"
The two continued arguing like that for awhile, before Blair walked in through the window (as usual) like she owned the place, "Aw, come here, my little scythey boy!"
And Blair will crush Soul's face in her boobs in 3, 2, 1, and there goes Old Faithful, counted down Maka, who gave Soul a Maka-Chop to the head and said, "Come on, Soul! We're gonna be late for school! Stop messing around!"
Needless to say, it was a hectic morning. Soul (eventually) got dressed and (after putting some baby powder you-know-where) he and Maka set off for Shibusen.
"Oh no! We're gonna be late! We're gonna be late! We're gonna be late!" cried Maka, who was running at full speed. "Damn it, Maka! Slow down!" yelled Soul, who was (barely) trailing behind her. "Who don't you speed up? Damn it, Soul! Get the lead out, will ya!" yelled Maka, who was very pissed off and annoyed at how the day was starting.
All of a sudden, she saw a familiar face up ahead. Justin. "Oh!" cried Maka, who slid to a stop a few feet away. "Hi, Justin!" No answer. Maka sighed; of course he couldn't hear her! Not while his music was playing on full-blast. Does he ever take those out? wondered Maka.
Suddenly, something slammed into Maka's back. It was Soul. "Ahhh!" cried Maka, who skidded to a painful stop right in front of Justin, with Soul on top of her.
M-Maka?" said Justin, who was obviously surprised at her, unusual entrance.
Not noticing that they had company, Soul jumped up and yelled, "Damn it, Maka! I told you to slow down, not stop!"
Maka jumped up, forgetting that Justin was right next to her, and yelled back at Soul, "Tough! It's your own fault!"
"Is too! If you wouldn't have made us late, we wouldn't have been running in the first place!"
"I made us late? It was you, damn it! You're the one who hit me in the head with your book!"
Now, since the two were yelling back and forth pretty fast, it was hard for Justin to read their lips to know what they were saying. So, sighing, he took out his earphones to try and catch up with the conversation. What he heard shocked him:
"Oh, come on! That did not hurt!" (Maka)
"It's an encyclopedia!" (Soul)
"Oh, grow a set!" (Maka)
"I already have one, thank you very much!" (Soul)
"Oh yeah, you proved that when you went off when Blair hugged you!" (Maka)
"How is that my fault? Blair's the one who crushes my face in her boobs!" (Soul)
"Maybe you should stop blaming other people for what you do!" (Maka)
"I do not! (Soul)
"Oh yeah, right. Sure you don't." (Maka)
"Hey! Shut up!" (Soul)
"No, you shut up!" (Maka)
"I'll shut up when you shut up!" (Soul)
"You think I'm actually stupid enough to fall for that twice? Think again!" (Maka)
"You're stupid because you fell for it once!" (Soul)
"Oh, so I'm stupid because I trusted you?" (Maka)
"Yeah! Hey, wait a second! Don't turn this back on me!" (Soul)
All the while, Justin stood there with a horrified look on his face; he was shocked that Maka, the girl he'd been thinking about as his 'little angel' for the past 12 or so hours, would actually say things like that. And, he had to wonder, who was that boy? He doubted that they were siblings. Maybe, they were a weapon and meister team? To him, that answer seemed most likely. After all, from what they were saying, it sounded like they lived together.
"Um, excuse me?" he said. They continued arguing. Honestly, he wasn't even sure what the argument was about anymore.
"Excuse me?" he tried again, a little more loudly. They didn't even flinch.
"Excuse me!" he was yelling now. They both looked up. "Oh!" said Maka, suddenly remembering that he was there, "uh, um, s-sorry about that."
"Yeah," said Soul, "so uncool, Maka." "HEY!" Soul sighed, "Whatever. I'm out of here." He then turned, and walked down the road. "You're ditching?" yelled Maka, who was now infuriated. "Yeah," called Soul over his shoulder, "Try to make up a good excuse about why I'm gone for Stein. I don't want that lunatic after me." "Oh no," said Maka, who walked up to him and grabbed the back of his shirt. "We're going to school, right now! And I don't care how 'uncool' you think it is to get there late! We're going, and that's final!" she said while dragging him toward Shibusen.
"What are you, my mom? I can do what I want!"
"OWOWOWOWOW! Damn it, Maka! That hurts!"
"Do we honestly need to go over this again?"
Justin watched them, beginning to get annoyed at Soul (though he didn't know who he was); first, he'd tackled Maka (who Justin still thought of as his 'little angel, despite the earlier, eh, content), then he'd yelled at her, and tried to ditch school, and yelled at her again. Let's just say that Justin was not amused.
After saying a quick goodbye to Justin, Maka ran off toward Shibusen, Soul in tow. Justin sweatdropped; those two acted like a married couple. He made a mental note to ask Maka who that boy was.
For the moment, however, he continued on going about his business.
As for Maka and Soul, well, the two barely got to class in time. They flew into class just a half-second before the bell rang. In short, they just barely made it in by a hair.
"Glad you could join us," said Stein, who seemed a little miffed even though they'd (technically) made it on time.
Maka was constantly glancing at the clock, not even paying attention to Stein's *coughcough20thcoughcough* dissection lesson. She just wanted to get out of class so that she could get ready for her big date.
But then, she got a mission. She, Soul, Chrona and Ragnarok had to go some place called Loew Village (it was some place in the Czech Republic) and investigate the Oldest Golem, which had apparently been killing townspeople or whatever.
She didn't complain (much), even though she'd probably have to rush to get ready for her big date. That is, if she made it in time.
Little did she know who else would show up during the mission.
GAH! I'm so sorry for the cliff hanger/short chapter/rushed ending, but I've set a deadline for myself; October 31st. In other words, Halloween, or, in the distant past, All Hallows Eve. I'm writing this on the 30th, so, yeah. I still have 4 other stories to update for my Halloween Special. That's four chapters, four stories, less than 24 hours to get it all done. Yikes. I'd ask you to wish me luck, but when I post this, it'll already be Halloween, the day of the deadline. That sentence made sense… right? Anyway, review, and Happy Halloween!
