"This. This is what dreams are made of."
"It's just a vacation."
"A free vacation! To the most beautiful country on the world!... Well, second most beautiful, I'm still very pro-Finland but-"
The two bantering friends turned to the brunette across the table and blinked at her. Her pretty silver-blue eyes were closed as she sipped her herbal tea. She was sitting properly but still relaxed in the comfortable chair around the little cafe table. Noting the silence at last she opened her eyes and lifted her chin ever-so-slightly, causing her chin-length brown locks to fall sightly backwards from the movement and allowing the sunlight to cast all shadows from her pretty peaches and cream face.
"It doesn't matter where we are or how we got here. All that matters is that we are here. So knock off bickering and just enjoy yourselves. If you can't do that, at least shut up and let me enjoy it."
The first girl who'd spoken grinned in amusement, her rosy lips curling back to reveal bright pearly whites.
"Sorry, Sare-bear." She said playfully. Sarah wrinkled her nose cutely but said nothing. She had long ago given up trying to discourage the girl from using the affectionate dub. Besides, there were worse nicknames...
Noting Sarah's silence, the grin on her friend's face brightened. She had a fondness for nicknames (when they were nice). To her, it was a sign of affection and she made it a point to dub all her friends with one.
Picking up her drink in her naturally tanned hand, said girl slipped the straw into her mouth to hide her grin. Her name was Shandi and it was because of her that her and her friends had ended up, not unwillingly, so far from home in the first place.
"I'm not sorry." Another pretty brunette said, playfully sticking out her tongue. "We're just having fun. Lighten up, will ya?"
Sarah took another sip of her tea before calmly replying.
"You'll hold that if you don't want to loose it." She said casually, though there was a slight warning undertone in her voice.
The second brunette made a face but she didn't stick her tongue out again. She knew Sarah was quite serious. This little spit-fires name was Alicia. Her hair, which fell just to her shoulders, was a few shades lighter then Sarah's who was more of a chocolate brown, where as hers rather resembled a caramel shade, streaked through with natural highlights that most girls would kill for but barely even registered to their owner. Her skin was a tawny shade and her lips were full and cherry-blossom pink. Her earthy-green eyes danced devilishly as she turned to the giggling girl across the table from her.
"And just what do you think you're laughing at?" She demanded feigning annoyance and trying to look serious. The petite girl grinned at her.
"You." She said simply. "All of you. Hundreds of miles from home on our dream vacation and you're both still bickering like real sisters. Its cute and amazing at the same time. Good to know some things never change, no matter where we are."
Shandi laughed and reached out to playfully pinch the girl's cheek.
"Never, ever, Lola!" She teased in a babyish tone.
The girl, properly named Lauren, laughed again and reached up to push the younger girl's hand away. She was the oldest of the group by a few years but looked undoubtedly like the youngest by much more. With a sweet, young-looking face, a fair complexion and uniquely colored hazel eyes with a blending of blue-green around the pupil, she certainly looked much younger then she was. Of course, the long, side ponytail of cinnamon corkscrew curls only added to the innocent child-like affect.
Shandi grinned and leaned back in her seat again. Her unique blue-green eyes, linned heavily with long, thick black lashes, danced in amusement as she looked around at her three best friends. Her own hair fell well past her shoulders and was as black as raven feathers, decorated with a large and vibrant chunk of purple in the front. Her ears held a multitude of studs; ten on the left side, nine on the other. There was a silver piercing in her left brow and a tiny white diamond stud in her nose. Occasionally, you could see the flash of her silver tongue ring when she talked - which was quite often. Being in the trade she was, fashion and appearance were a big deal for her.
Shandi was the Cosmetologist; hair, skin, makeup, tattoos and piercings, she did it all. Sarah was the apprentice librarian, her love of books overshadowed only by her love of order and organization. Lauren was a historian, and in her friend's opinion, the best there was, although the opinion may have had much to do with the fact she was their friend. She studied history and facts and often wrote about it, making it more interesting. Sometimes she even wrote fictional stories with segments of history in them. She'd even managed to get a few of her pieces published in a few small-time books. Alicia was the only one of the four who hadn't actually made a career choice as of yet, but she was scheduled to go back to school for her general studies the following fall.
"Aren't you all glad I signed up for that 'silly little contest' after all."
The girls rolled their eyes but each had a small smile on their face. Shandi was referring to the contest she'd entered a few months ago concerning a free trip for five to any destination you desired. The catch had been that you had to sign up for their weekly 'junk mail' as Shandi called it but that seemed like a small price to pay when all she had to do was throw it in the garbage. Normally she wouldn't even consider such a thing, thinking it all garbage and nonsense, but when she came across an ad while surfing the net one day and got a strong feeling she should enter, she did. Of course, neither of the girls had expected her to win any more then she had but a few weeks later, she got a phone call and voila! An all-expense-paid trip to her choice vacation. She had debated very briefly on inviting her family but in the end had decided against it and invited the girls instead. So what if there was a spot left over? She had the most important people with her and that was all that mattered.
The place she had chosen? Europe, of course. Currently the four were sitting underneath the shade of an umbrella outside a beautiful cafe in Rome, Italy.
"Well, I'm glad you didn't invite that dorky guy-friend of yours anyway." Alicia teased, making a face. This the four girls laughed at.
"Joey?" Shandi said with a smile. "He's not dorky! He's..."
She trailed off, trying to think of a way to describe her friend. When she came up with nothing, she laughed again.
"Okay, maybe he is a little dorky. But at least hes cute."
"Ish." Alica teased again. The dark-haired teen reached out and gave her a playful shove and the girls laughed once again.
"So, where to next?" Lauren asked curiously.
Shandi sat back in her chair and slipped her straw into her mouth again, looking up thoughtfully as she sipped.
"Hmm..." She hummed aloud. "We've already been pretty much all over Italy. We've seen the Coliseum, the Vatican, the Catacombs. Anything else you girls wanna see?"
"I'd like to see Venice." Sarah volunteered thoughtfully. "The gondolas... I'll bet it's amazing."
"The leaning tower of Pisa!" Alica said enthusiastically, miming pushing against something heavy that was leaning or falling on her. The girls laughed again and Lauren spoke up with a smile.
"Agreed. I wanna see that stuff too. But I'd also really like to see-"
"Those boys over here!"
Lauren turned to blink at Shandi in surprise.
"What?" She asked with a laugh, half-amused, half-confused. Alicia rolled her eyes in annoyance.
"I swear; there's a tiny percentage of your brain reserved for work, play and everything else needed in life. The rest of it is occupied by boys!"
Shandi, who normally would have laughed at this and instantly come up with some witty retort, was gawking past her three friends in nothing short of shocked astonishment.
"No seriously!" She exclaimed, pointing past them at a table some ways away. "Look at them! Who do they remind you of?"
"Don't point!" Sarah scolded, reaching out to lower the girl's hand. When she did, she turned in her seat and looked behind her at the group her friend was pointing at. When her eyes fell on them, she blinked at them in stunned silence.
"My God." The brunette stated bluntly. "She's right... they look just like-"
"Who?" Alicia interrupted, rising a little in her seat and looking around vigorously at all the tables around them. "Who are you talking about? And who do they look like?"
Lauren was starring at the boys now too, blinking in astonishment as well.
"Those boys three or four tables down, Li." The petite girl said, still looking at them. "The group of four. Don't you think they look just like-?"
"The Majestics!" Shandi blurted excitedly. The three girls looked back at her to see her positively glowing excitement and enthusiasm. Alicia laughed heartedly.
"The Majestics?" She repeated in amusement. "As in the bebyblade team Majestics? From the anime? Are you kidding?"
Undeterred, Shandi grinned wide.
"Duh. Who else do you know by that name? You didn't see who we were talking about did you?"
Alicia snorted, still grinning in amusement.
Cutting her off, Shandi grabbed the caramel-haired girls face and jerked it around to face she direction she'd been pointing in earlier. With her free hand she lifted it to point again and this time Sarah didn't scold her.
"Look!" The tanned girl said forcefully. "Right there, right in the corner. You see them? Now tell me you don't agree."
"I see, I see." Alicia said absently, trying to yank her face away from her friends grasp.
"Look!" Shandi snapped forcefully. Alicia heaved an exaggerated sigh of annoyance and finally focused on the boys. She was about to tell her friends again that she didn't see the resemblance - how could it be possible? - until her eyes did indeed fall on them and the jaw in Shandi's hand dropped.
"Oh my god!" She exclaimed loudly. "It's like someone plucked them straight out of the anime!"
The brunette felt her friend let go of her face but she continued to stare at the boys some ways away nonetheless. It wasn't until she heard Sarah's startled voice that she turned back to the girl only to find her on her feet and digging through her huge Chanel purse.
"Where are you going?"
"To get a picture."
"To what?" Sarah exclaimed in alarm.
"To get a picture." Shandi stated again, pulling her expensive camera from her purse.
"You can't be serious!" Sarah replied, now sitting very straight and rigid in her chair.
"As a heartattack." Shandi said, her blue-green eyes dancing mischeviously. "Coming?"
Before either of the other girls could respond, Sarah spoke again.
Shandi grinned and shrugged.
"Suit yourself." She said with a wink. "Watch my purse."
And with that she turned and left, her three friends gaping after her.
Shandi felt her heartbeat pick up speed as she approached the boys she'd been admiring. The hands around her camera began to sweat and her grip on her camera tightened. She was excited and nervous at the same time, like she really was about to meet the famous European beybladers from her favorite childhood anime.
Finally the raven-haired young woman reached the small group and stopped in front of the small gate separating their section from the others. She stood there for a moment, trying to gather the courage to speak, but before she had the chance, the boy who looked like Johnny McGreggor noticed her. At first it was just a quick glance as he spoke to the blonde sitting across him, then he did a double-take when he realized this strange girl was starring at him and immediately stopped talking to give her a look of annoyance.
Shandi blinked at him and when the redhead seemed to realize she didn't understand him, he sighed heavily in annoyance and spoke again.
"Can we help you?" He asked in English this time. The raven-haired girl couldn't help feeling slightly delighted to note the ever-so-slight accent - it even sounded Scottish! - in the redhead's voice.
Across him, the blonde looked over his shoulder at her. When he saw her, a charming smile came to his face and he turned partially around in his seat, leaning an arm on the back of his chair as he looked up at her.
"Ciao, bella." He said kindly. "Please excuse my friend's rudeness. Can we help you?"
Shandi felt her face heat but forced back her blush - she was too proud to blush. Placing her own most winning smile on her face, she took a silent breath and forced herself to speak.
"I'm sorry to bother you!" She replied cheerfully. "I've got a kinda weird request. See, my friends and I... Mmm.. well, we happened to notice you guys a few moments ago and, I know it sounds really weird, but you kinda remind us of someone."
The four boys all exchanged a look and when the blonde looked back at her again, his smile was slightly wider and there was a strange sparkle in his eye.
"A strange request, huh?" He said, sounding slightly amused. He then reached out and playfully tapped the camera in her hands with his index finger. "Let me guess; you thought we looked like these boys you're familiar with and you were wondering if you could have a picture with us?"
This time the blush was inevitable and uncontrollable and Shandi cursed herself as she felt her cheeks burn slightly. Nevertheless she kept her smile in place as she replied.
"Well, I was only hoping for a picture of you but a picture with you would be even better!"
The blonde's smile widened again and he turned back to his friends.
"Come a questo proposito i ragazzi?" He said with a small grin. The boy who the girls had thought looked like Oliver, though he had shoulder-length dark brown hair rather then green, gave the blonde a shrug and a smile.
"E 'solo una foto. Non mi dispiace."
The blonde turned to the fourth person at the table then, who looked like Robert with sandy blonde hair rather then purple. The tall young man shrugged as well as he took a sip of something in a dainty tea cup.
The blonde turned back to Shandi again and gave her another charming smile.
"Looks like we all agree-"
"What am I? Chopped Suey?" The redhead asked irritably. The blonde turned back to him.
"It's just a picture. Are you honestly going to say no to such a simple request when a beautiful girl asks you for it?"
It was obviously meant to be teasing and mocking towards the redhead but Shandi felt her face burn yet again at the, whether intentional or not, compliment.
The redhead looked up at their guest again and starred at her defiantly, causing her to give him her best puppy dog pout. He narrowed his eyes at her for a few moments and during those moments it was cute versus defiance until finally cute won and the redhead sighed in exasperation and looked away from the girl.
"Alright, alright, damn it! Just one picture."
The blonde grinned in amusement and the brunette smiled while the sandy blonde in the corner smirked slightly with closed eyes.
"Thank you!" Shandi cheered happily.
"Yea, yea." The redhead muttered under his breath, leaning back in his seat and absently stabbing at the pie on his plate with his fork rather then looking at anyone.
The white-blonde boy turned back to Shandi and have her another one hundred watt smile.
"Now that that's settled, why don't you go collect your friends and meet us by the fountain in the square? We're done here anyway."
The smile slipped slightly from Shandi's face and noticing it, the blonde laughed lightly.
"Don't worry, bella." He said kindly, getting to his feet and reaching across the gate to take her hand in his. "We're not going to stand you up. In fact, just to assure you we will show up, why don't you hang on to this until we meet up again?"
Blue-green eyes looked down and bugged at the sight of a chunky golden ring set with a huge ruby being slipped onto her finger. The ring was many sizes to big for her and went belly up on her finger as soon as the blonde released it. Looking up at the blonde again she starred at him with an utterly astonished expression, making him smile in amusement before lifting her hand to delicately brush his lips against the back of her fingers.
"Till then, adieu, bella."
The three young men sitting at the table with the blonde all stood up at that, the brunette giving her a smile and a small bow, the tall blonde giving her a polite nod of the head and the redhead making a face at her before giving her an awkward nod and following after his friends who turned and left as one.
Shandi starred after the four handsome young men before looking back down at her camera, then at the huge ring on her finger. She closed her fist to keep it from falling off, then glanced up one more time to watch the boys disappear into the building before finally turning back to her table and walking back to tell her girlfriends the good news.
"Are you sure they're going to be here?" Alicia asked for what seemed like the hundredth time in the past fifteen minutes.
"For the love of God!" Shandi exclaimed in annoyance, looking up at the girl from her spot on the edge of the fountain. "Yes! They'll be here! I highly doubt he'd gimme something this expensive looking as a gift to make me leave him alone!"
"How d'ya know its not a fake?" Alicia insisted. "That it's not just some cheap trinket he gives to all the girls who bug him?"
An angry glint sparked in Shandi's eyes at that.
"I wasn't bugging him." She seethed at the girl. "And I advise you to get down from there before I pull you down. And you may find that you're a little wetter then you are now when I do!"
Alicia stuck her tongue out at the raven-haired girl and said friend made a swipe at her legs but the brunette simply bounced nimbly backwards and stuck out her tongue again, this time placing her hands on her hips. Shandi glared at her but before she could retaliate, Sarah's voice interrupted the little spat.
"Lemme see that again."
Shandi turned to her and lifted her fist, allowing Sarah to reach out and study the object. Peering up from beside her. Lauren looked the ring over as well.
"It looks really old." The petite girl observed thoughtfully. "Like... centuries old. And does that look like a crest to you? There on the side?"
Sarah turned the ring on the finger it was on and lifted the hand to get a closer look at it. Seeing that Lauren was right she nodded and lowered Shandi's hand again.
"Looks like it." She agreed.
"You think it might be a family crest or something? An ancient family heirloom?"
"Maybe." Sarah agreed again. "If it is real, which it seems to be in every way shape and form, then that's a good possibility."
Lauren turned a huge playful and cheeky grin on her dark friend then.
"Woooow!" She drawled teasingly. "He must really have taken a liking to you to give you something like that!"
Shandi yanked her hand away from the girls and felt her face burn hotly.
"Hardly!" She replied hotly. "I'm sure he's filthy rich, just like Enrique Giancarlo. No doubt his daddy's got dozens of private armed guards ready to deploy of I even considered running off with something so valuable. And just like Enrique, he knows how to make a girl feel special. I'm sure this ring has been on hundreds of fingers besides his long before me."
The dark girl looked down at the ring again and made a face, looking at it now as if it were some ugly diseased thing.
Lauren shook her head and from beside them Alicia rolled her eyes and finally hopped down from the edge of the fountain to land beside them.
"So what?" She said bluntly. "Who cares? The point is, he liked you enough... or something, to give it to you. He didn't have to and he didn't have to meet us here - which you're so convinced that he will. We're only here for a few weeks anyway so either way it doesn't matter. Whether this is the last time you'll see him or the the day we leave here is, chances are, when we go home you're never going to see him again anyway."
Shandi made a face.
"That is so harsh." She stated bluntly. "But you're right. It's bittersweet but you're right." She suddenly grinned then like the Cheshire cat. "So! Might as well make the most of things while we can!"
Alica rolled her eyes again but there was a smile on her face this time.
"Aaaaaand she's back!"
"Ciao bellas! Hope you weren't waiting too long?"
The girls all turned to see four gorgeous boys approaching them, two with smiles, one with a polite expression and one with a deeply aggravated expression as if he'd been dragged there by the ear.
Alica placed her hand on her hip indignantly.
"Hell yes we were-"
The movement of Shandi elbowing her in the ribs instantly shut her up.
"No, we weren't waiting too long." Shandi said with a smile. Before anything else could be said or done, she stepped forward and reached out her hand to Enrique. "Here. Thank you for coming."
The white-blonde young man took the ring with a brilliant and slightly amused smile and slipped it back onto his finger without taking his eyes off the girl in front of him.
"I didn't really have a choice did I?" He replied teasingly. Shandi's smile slipped and she chewed her cheek.
"No, I suppose you didn't." She replied uncharacteristically softly, forcing an obviously fake smile. The blonde laughed and tipped his head slightly to meet her gaze again.
"But I would have anyway." He said kindly. "The decision to give you the ring was my own choice wasn't it?"
Shandi looked back at him again and her smile returned, brighter then ever.
"Yea. I guess so." She said with a small laugh.
"So. About this picture." The brunette boy resembling Oliver said with a smile. It was the first time Shandi had heard him speak English and the first time the other girls heard him speak at all. They were all admittedly pleased to hear a slight French accent to his voice, though said voice was very different from Oliver Polanski's. "Where do you want to take it?"
The girls looked around thoughtfully and after a few moments, the blonde gestured to the beautiful fountain behind them.
"The fountain, of course." He said with a smile. "That's why I wanted to come here."
"That's perfect." Lauren agreed with a smile. Sarah nodded, a small smile on her face as well.
"A very pretty picture."
"Alright, then." The blonde said with a smile, lifting his hands to usher the girls forward. "The fountain it is. Why don't you girls have a seat on the edge there and we'll stand behind you?"
Shandi and Lauren's eyes lit up at that.
"That would be such an awesome picture!" The petite girl said excitedly.
"Very." The dark teen agreed.
The girls sat on the edge of the fountain and the boys approached them, pausing for a moment to decide where to stand. In the end the Oliver look-a-like got up on the lip of the well and stood behind Lauren. The sandy-haired tall blonde positioned himself behind Sarah and the white-blonde haired young man stepped up and stood behind Shandi. The redhead however paused with a sour look on his face.
"You gotta be kidding me!" He said indignantly. "We'll get all wet!"
Alicia raised an eyebrow at him.
"So?" She said bluntly. "You get showers don't you?"
The redhead turned to her and gawked at her in astonishment. After a few moments he smirked and approached her.
"Smart ass huh?" He replied, though he didn't seem annoyed or angry like Shandi and his friends, if the looks on their faces were any indication, had expected.
"I dunno about smart, but I've been told it's cute."
This time the redhead actually laughed at the caramel-haired girls remark and finally stepped up onto the ledge to take position behind her.
"Oh, duh." Lauren said suddenly. "Who's going to take the picture?"
The girls all looked around at each other and frowned, mentally slapping themselves for their stupidity. Eventually Shandi sighed and stood up.
"It'll take it." She said forcing a small smile as she stood up. "It was my idea."
"That's not very fair." The white-blonde said suddenly, leaning down to gently take the chunky and expensive camera from her hand. Looking around for a moment his eyes fell on an elderly man walking by and he called out to him. "Mi scusi signore! Le dispiacerebbe di scattare una foto per noi?"
The man stopped and looked at them then smiled and approached.
"Non vedo perché no!" He said kindly, reaching out to accept the camera the blonde was holding out to him. Said blonde gave him the device with a smile and the man stepped back a few feet.
"Okay then." The blonde said with a smile, looking at his friends then with a suggestive look. A silent agreement seemed to pass between them and the blonde nodded before the four of them crouched down on their knees and took position, surprising all four girls.
The white-blonde placed one arm around Shandi's waist from behind and lifted his other hand to form a V with his two fingers while he gave the camera a one-hundred watt smile. To their left the brunette had placed both his hands on Lauren's shoulders and was smiling charmingly. Beside them, the tall sandy-blonde had gotten down on one knee and had placed a hand on Sarah's shoulder, the other rested idly by his side while he leaned forward slightly and held his former polite expression for the camera. Finally, on the far end, the redhead had thrown an arm around Alicia's shoulder while he grinned widely and lifted his free hand like the blonde on the other end to form a V with his fingers. In front of them, the girls all exchanged looks with each other before grinning happily and turning back to the camera. Shandi lifted bother her hands to form V's while a huge grin lit her face, Sarah's hands were folded neatly on her lap while she smiled prettily, Lauren's hands gripped the lip of the fountain while she grinned happily and on the end, Alicia, having fully recovered from her momentary shock, had slung an arm around the redhead's shoulders and lifted her free hand in a V as well, her huge cheesy grin just as wide and silly as the young man next to her.
The elderly man ready with the camera smiled at them all before lifting it.
"Pronti?" He asked. And the four young men mimicked him.
And with that the man snapped a picture, the bright flash flashed and the picture was taken. When he lowered the camera to look at it, the man smiled brightly and held it out to the group.
"Bella! Positivamente bella! Tali coppie belle si fanno!"
The blonde hopped down from the lip of the well and approached the man while the other three boys stood up and waited. When he took the camera and looked at it for himself, he smiled and nodded.
"Si. Bella." He said cheerfully. "Grazie signore."
The man smiled again and nodded before turning to give the others a nod and smile as well before turning to be on his way again.
The boys jumped down from the fountain and everyone crowded around the blonde to see the picture in his hands.
"Oh wow!" Lauren said happily. "It does look awesome!"
"Definitely!" Shandi agreed enthusiastically. "Thank you guys so much!"
Sarah looked at the picture for a few moments before looking up at the boys again.
"What did that man say just now?" She asked curiously.
The blonde and brunette exchanged a look before chuckling to themselves. The brunette then smiled at her as he replied.
"He said, the picture was absolutely beautiful."
Sarah raised an eyebrow.
"I'm not stupid." She replied calmly yet slightly indignantly. "Those were an awful lot of words for 'absolutely beautiful'."
The brunette laughed again but instead of him answering her, the redhead spoke up.
"He said; 'what beautiful couples you all make!'" The redhead said in a creaky voice, doing a bad imitation of the elderly man's voice. Despite the comical act, the girls all flushed, even the normally hard to embarrass Alicia.
"And you didn't correct him?" Shandi accused the blonde in slight embarrassment.
Said blonde lifted his head from the camera and handed it back to her with an amused smile.
"Why bother? It wouldn't have made a difference either way. Why, are you ashamed to mistaken for our girlfriends?"
Forcing back her flush, Shandi forced herself to keep eye-contact with the blonde, though it proved to be much harder then she expected.
"Not really." She replied, giving her own attempt at flirting a little - she wasn't stupid either, she knew what the blonde was doing. "Who wouldn't want to be mistaken for the girlfriends of such stunningly gorgeous boys?"
The blonde's grin widened and he laughed, obviously pleased with this answer.
"Hey, aren't you even curious about who we think you look like?" Alicia said suddenly. "Neither of you ever did ask."
The four boys exchanged looks at that, the Enrique and Oliver look-a-likes looking slightly more amused then the other two.
"Not really." The blonde replied with a sly smile. "We already know who you think we look like."
The girls were a little taken aback.
"You do?" Lauren asked in surprise. The brunette nodded.
"You think we look like the Majestics, no?"
Four mouths dropped at this and the boys, even the serious sandy-blonde, laughed lightly.
"How- h-how-" Alicia couldn't form a sentence any more then her friends could.
"Are you... fans or something?" Sarah asked slowly after a while. The blonde and brunette grinned wide.
"You could say that." The brunette replied in amusement.
Alicia was the first to recover and gave the four a weary look before speaking.
"Don't tell me you guys are some of those freaks who get plastic surgeries and change their looks and stuff to try and look like cartoon or anime characters?"
At this the blonde and brunette burst into laughter while the sandy-haired young man looked disgusted and the redhead seemed unable to decide whether to be amused or bewildered.
"No, no no!" The brunette replied through his laughed, reaching up to wipe tears of laughter from his eyes. "It's nothing like that."
"Then what is it?" Shandi asked, getting a little frustrated as her curiosity reached a paramount level. "How do you know who they are? You've obviously seen the show before, or read the manga. Did you purposefully try to look like them? Are you fans or are you going to try and tell me you just happen to resemble them so uncannily by chance?"
The smiles on the boy's faces widened at this.
"We don't look like them." The brunette said with another amused smile. Shandi raised an eyebrow.
"Really." She stated rather then asked.
"Really." The white-blonde repeated with a grin. "They look like us. The Majestics team from the beyblade world were created from us."
