After a long day of work the following Monday, the gang sat in the living room while Benson talked to them, holding his clipboard.
"Alright everyone, as you know, it's our monthly game night and-"
"Y'all should make it a week event," Meatwad interrupted. "You know, so we can have fun time once every week, and we can talk and have fun together."
"I agree!" Pops said. "Nothing is more splendid than coworker bonding!"
"I'll think about it, Meatwad," Benson said with no emotion. "For now, we'll have our game night tonight and our usual outing this Friday."
"Can we pick the game already? I'm turnin' into a grandma over here." Rigby complained.
"Fine, spew out your suggestions one at a time."
"Tiddlywinks!" Pops chirped.
"No way, we should play 'Make your own Girlfriend'!" Muscle Man said, and HFG formed a grin.
"Whoa," Shake started. "If that game's real, I'll second it!"
Muscle Man looked away a bit, rubbing the back of his neck. "It's not, but someone out there probably invented it!"
"Eh," Shake said, looking down in disappointment. "Just my luck..."
"We should go against each other in video games, and the final winner could get free snack bar tokens." Mordecai smiled.
"Don't you guys usually go pick out a board game at that game shop?" HFG asked.
"Yeah," Mordecai replied. "But we're broke."
"Plus, most of the games they have there right now suck." Rigby replied, then held up some video games. "You can never go wrong with these!"
Shake smiled. "Hey, if it comes down to it, I'm up for some video games. I'll beat all you suckers!"
"Me too, y'all." Meatwad spoke up.
"How 'bout them crossword puzzles?" Skips also spoke up.
"Alright," Benson wrote all of it down on his clipboard. "These suggestions are...interesting.." He looked at Frylock and slightly smiled. "Frylock, you've been quiet. Have any suggestions?"
Frylock's eyes widened. "Oh I-I'm not really that..into games..you know.."
Shake chuckled. "You'll have to excuse Frylock, he's more of a quiet computer loser than anything."
Frylock glared and simply ignored him. "I-I guess we could never go wrong with a game like..." He thought of Mordecai. He thought of his crush on Margaret too..but mostly Mordecai.
He was just...so curious..so many possibilities..
"..truth or dare?"
This caused the guys to mumble happily among each other. Benson nodded.
"Alright, all in favor?"
The guys happily nodded and 'yeah'd'. Soon, they all sat in a circle, with Mordecai asking first.
"Alright Rigby, truth or dare?"
Mordecai gave an evil smile. "I dare you to eat Muscle Man's boogers."
While Rigby had a scared face, the rest just 'eww'ed.
"It's actually snot right now." Muscle Man picked his nose. "Yeah, mostly snot."
"NO! No way, I'm not doing that!"
"You have to, Rigby! You wanted a dare!"
Muscle Man chuckled. "Hold him down and open up!"
A second later, Mordecai held a struggling Rigby to the floor while Muscle Man let his snot fall from his nose into Rigby's mouth. The rest just laughed and grossed out at the same time.
"AGH! I-It tasted like rotten puke mixed with horseradish!" Mordecai and a few others laughed. "Oh yeah? Now it's MY time to ask..." He looked around and evilly smiled at his next victim. "Benson, truth or dare?"
Benson simply glared back suspiciously. "Dare."
"I dare you to..." Rigby thought of all the different options. "Give me a week off!"
"What?" Benson yelled. "You gotta be kidding me!"
Skips pulled out a book, and turned to a page. "You can't assign that dare...or any dares like it."
"What? What do you mean?"
"It says here..'..you cannot give a dare that will give you or the victim pleasure. It has to be something embarassing or otherwise uncomfortable.'"
Benson sighed. "Thank goodness I can't do that. Even though it'd be one heck of a quiet week.."
Rigby pouted. "Ugh, fine! Truth then!"
Benson nodded. "That's good, bring it."
"Uh...do you hate me and Mordecai?"
Benson had an unsure face for a second, and the others looked at each other. Finally, Benson looked back at Rigby.
"No. I hate you two as workers, but I don't hate you personally. As regular people, you just deeply annoy me."
"Phew!" Rigby sighed in relief. "That's a relief, man!"
Mordecai smiled. "Yeah, it makes me feel a lot better and all."
While Benson asked Pops 'Truth or dare?', Shake nudged Rigby's shoulder.
"You know what would be an awesome dare?"
Rigby curiously looked at him. "No, what?" As Shake whispered it into his ear, he almost broke into laughter. "That'd be AWESOME!"
"Yeah! And the stupid book'll allow you to do it since it's not pleasurable!"
Rigby rubbed the back of his neck. "They'll probably kill me though."
"Yeah well...did Mordecai NOT give you a disgusting dare?"
Rigby was in thought for a second. "Yeah, that's true. It'll be like revenge!"
Shake smiled. "There ya go!"
With that, Pops had his turn and was about to pick when..
"Pops, Pops! Can I ask someone? Please?" Rigby begged.
"Wait 'til it's your turn." Bensen said sternly.
"No no please! I got a good one! This'll make everyone laugh!"
Shake chuckled. "Yeah! Let him go, you won't regret it! It'll be the best!"
Benson sighed. "Fine, just this once."
With that, Rigby gave a devilish grin and looked at Mordecai. "Mordecai, truth..or dare?"
Mordecai grinned and crossed his arms. "Dare. Bring it on, you suck at giving dares."
"Okay...I dare you to...MAKE OUT WITH FRYLOCK!"
Everyone else in the room gasped.
"WHAT!" Frylock and Mordecai yelled simultaneously. While everyone else was trying to process this, Rigby and Shake started laughing harder than ever before. While Mordecai was a bit shaken, Frylock had an epiphany when he saw Shake laugh hard like that.
"Shake, were you in on this?"
Shake looked at him with innocence. "Who, me? 'Course not! I'm not smart enough to think of a dare like that! Rigby's got some STONES!"
"Dude, I'm not doing that dare! That's WAY outta line!" Mordecai exclaimed.
"You have to, now pucker up them lips, boy!" Shake said.
Frylock held up his fries. "Wait a minute, it says in that book that we can't take on pleasurable dares! Forms of kissing are pleasurable!"
"Whoa, bro!" Muscle Man giggled. "You just said you WANTED to kiss Mordecai!"
"No I didn't!"
"Hey now, it's a free country," Meatwad spoke up, sad music playing in the background. "We all gots the right to free speech and..all kinds of freedom. They ain't forced to do things they don't wanna do. If they don't wanna do their dare, then...well, I think they should..cuz it'd be funny!"
The rest laughed a little while Frylock glared. "I'll lose the game before I do something stupid like this..no offense Mordecai, I-I just uh.."
Mordecai nodded. "None taken, none taken at all."
All of a sudden, the house started to shake a bit, causing everyone to be startled.
"What was that?" Meatwad said with fright, hugging Pops. He smiled and patted the meatball.
"Now now, Meaty Meat, it was most likely an earthquake."
"But we don't get earthquakes over here!" HFG said.
The house started to shake more this time, causing everyone to tumble everywhere.
"Explain that, then! That was like an earthquake from Hell!" Shake yelled.
Skips wasn't surprised. "It's not an earthquake, it's Truthius and Darthonius, the gods of Truth and Dare."
Frylock raised an eyebrow. "Uh..'gods' of Truth or Dare?"
Rigby rolled his eyes. "Dude, why does everything have to have a god?"
"Well what the heck do they want with our house?" Benson yelled.
"They always get angry if people don't complete their dares or admit their truths. It's like cheating, but more fatal."
"FATAL?" Frylock and Mordecai yelled simultaneously.
The house started to shake more. Then a large whirling sound could be heard, like the sound of hurricane winds.
"But I tried to get out of my dare!" Rigby yelled over the whishing. "How come this stuff didn't happen earlier?"
"Because Frylock and Mordecai are repeatedly refusing to do their dares. The gods assume that the first few rejections are nothing major and they're taken lightly. But when you reject your dare or truth too many times, the gods will do anything in their power to make you complete them."
"There's a damn hurricane in the house!" Frylock yelled to Skips. "It can't get worse than that!"
All of a sudden, pieces of wood start to fly off and hit Pops in the head, knocking him out cold.
Mordecai had fear in his face, glancing towards Frylock. "Are you sure about that?"
"Just do your dare already!" Rigby said, holding on for dear life.
"Yeah!" Shake yelled. "I won't record it or anything like that! I'm not making any promises though!"
"No!" Mordecai yelled. "Forget it!"
Everyone started screaming as the winds got more intense. Soon, they felt several cold chills come down. Soon, Frylock and Mordecai were lifted high above everyone else, somewhere in the sky. They were being bound together by cloudy winds.
"Soooooo..." A deep voice said. "You two don't want to do your dares, do you?"
"Who the hell are you?" Frylock yelled.
"I...am Truthius..." The voice by Frylock said.
"And I..." The voice by Mordecai said. "...am Darthonius.."
Frylock and Mordecai gasped and stared at each other. "The gods of Truth or Dare?"
"Correct." Truthius replied. "And you and your friends will suffer greater damage if you do not complete your dares."
"Yes!" Darthonius yelled. "Do it!"
"Look, guys," Mordecai said. "My friend gave the dare as a joke. He didn't actually want us to do it!"
"Yeah, my roommate was in on it too!" Frylock replied.
Things were quiet for a second.
"It does not matter." Truthius responded. "A dare is a dare."
"And you must do it!" Darthonius replied.
"No! I'm not doing it! You guys don't scare us!" Mordecai yelled.
"Hmmmm...see your house down there?" The two saw a view of the park house. "It and the others inside of it can and will be blown away if you do not complete your dares."
"There were winds already coming through the house!" Frylock said. "They're all probably gone by now!"
"Nah they're still there," Darthonius calmly replied. "But they WILL be gone if you don't complete your dares."
"We don't want to, so we don't have to, right Frylock?"
"Yeah, yeah he's right.." Frylock almost got lost in thought thinking about all of this.
"Okay then.." Suddenly, the house began to rise into the air. "Shall I blow it away?"
"Wait!" Frylock spoke up. "Okay...we'll do it."
Mordecai blushed and looked at Frylock. "B-but...I thought you-"
"Is it really worth it to let all the ones we care about disappear? All because of a stupid dare?"
"Well no but...I mean.."
"Look," Frylock glanced around. "We both hate the idea of...having to do this but..look at it this way. We either get it over with and things can go back to normal...or we'll completely reject the dare and lose everyone we care about...and probably our lives."
Mordecai had a face of defeat. "I-I guess you're right. It shouldn't be too bad, right?"
Frylock sighed. "Uh...I guess we just...treat it like any other kiss.."
"Ahem...you mean...makeout?" Darthonius said as he and Truthius giggled. Frylock glared.
"Hurry now," Truthius said. "I have the sudden urge to SMASH something out of anger...heheh, get it?"
The two hesistantly floated toward each other, wrapping their arms(and fries) around each other, and...their lips touched.
Things suddenly became white and Mordecai and Frylock were still kissing each other quite seductively. It went on for a minute or so until they heard chuckles. They stopped and looked around.
"You know who else kisses with their tongue? MY MOM!"
Mordecai and Frylock widened their eyes when they realized their tongues were intertwined together and their lips still touched. They quickly pulled apart, both mumbling different things out of anxiety.
They all laughed.
"BEST...DARE...EVER!" Muscle Man said, laughing and high-fiving Rigby and HFG at the same time.
"That's for making me eat snot, Mordecai! HA!" Rigby said.
"Y'all look like you liked it. Hehe." Meatwad said. Frylock and Mordecai lightly blushed.
"L-let's not talk about it, alright?" Frylock awkwardly said.
"Yeah, we did it. You guys can stop with the jerk-ness." Mordecai replied, looking down and rubbing his wing.
"Aw don't be a sour sport!" Shake said while still chuckling. "Atleast you got some TONGUE! Better than nothing, right? Now..." He picked up a cordless phone. "Let's invite some chicks over so I can get some CHICK tongue when I'm the one with a makeout dare-"
"No!" Benson said as he snatched the phone from Shake's hand. "We're done with that game for tonight AND forever!"
"Ah what?" Rigby protested. "But the house went back to normal after they did their dare!"
"Yes, but something worse might happen next time, we could lose our lives!" Pops said, rubbing his head from the short concussion he had. Then he looked at Rigby and Shake. "Though it was quite mischievous, your dare was scandalously exciting! Good show, gentlemen!"
"Thanks, Pops! Shake thought up most of it though." Rigby said, smiling at Shake.
"And it was worth it!" Shake said, eyes widened as he smiled. "Frylock's OUTTA the closet!"
"And you and Rigby are 'OUTTA' luck!" Benson said, pointing towards the two. "Since you two almost caused the house and our lives to disappear because of some game gods, you'll be working unpaid overtime for the next two weeks to help pay for any leftover damages to the house."
Rigby pouted but smiled. "Agh, it was worth it."
"Damnit!" Shake said. "Does this mean I don't get a check?"
Benson facepalmed. "No, you still get a check, you just won't be paid for the EXTRA work you'll be doing after hours."
"Oh." Shake looked down and around. "Eh, it was worth it."
Later that night, Frylock was washing his face in the bathroom, still thinking about the things that happened tonight.
He'll never think of me as a friend again! He'll just look at me like I'm some weirdo freak like everyone else does. All because of Shake. No worries, though, he'll get his karma...
He put on a teeth-white bathrobe and started heading towards the guest room where he, Shake and Meatwad slept(on three different beds, of course). Before he reached the door, he almost ran into Mordecai.
"Oh, hey Frylock!"
"Hey Mordecai.., uh..." Frylock was a bit anxious. "H-how's it goin'?"
"I'm just...going to sleep, dude. I'm guessing that's what..you're gonna do too, right?"
Frylock smiled. "Yeah, yeah, I was! Uh...so, I'll...see you in the morning?"
"Right on. I'll see you then." They both awkwardly waved at each other before they each headed off to their rooms.
As Mordecai and Frylock layed down on their own beds, they each thought the same thing:
He was acting kinda strange. I wonder what he thinks of me now...
