The running of hurried peds stopped at the end of the second hall, and instantly the twins slowly to a stop, both gasping for breath as the shorter of the two bent over, grapping his knee joints as he panted harshly. A silver frame dashed behind them and quickly ducked in between the two so that he was facing them, a look of annoyance and over all surprise playing in his sapphire optics; his face mask covering any hint of his frowning lips as he looked over the duo.
"Oh, I cannot believe you two!" Nightwing stated in his British-like accent, clutching his fists and stomping a foot onto the tiled floor as he spook. He looked from one to the other for an answer, and, finally when the duo caught their breaths, the shorter of the twins standing straight again - even though his chassis was heaving still - he finally got an answer.
"Well, i-it wasn't my fault, so don't go b-blamin' me," breathed Blackbird, giving his twin a pointed glare. Instantly the older twin gave his brother the same look, however seeming more baffled that he was on the receiving end of one.
"So you sayin' it's mah fault?" asked Raven, gesturing to himself as he turned towards his brother in annoyance. Instantly Raven did the same, trying to make himself look taller than he actually was if only for the fact that he was smaller than his brother.
"Yeah, 'cause I wasn't the one who slammed my fist into the door!" Raven all but roared, nose scrunching up in annoyance. Raven retorted with raising his servos and roughly pushing his brother on the shoulders, making him stumble back slightly, mostly in surprise.
"Well then, ya shouldn't a' moved yer slaggin' helm out th' way, or else we wouldn't a caused no trouble!" said Raven in the same tone as his younger twin, glaring down at him.
Blackbird seemed about to most likely push his brother back and retort, however Nightwing quickly intervened, dashing in the middle of the duo and pushing them apart, knowing that they wouldn't try to hurt him even if they tried. He was their younger brother, after all, and it had always been Aquajet's rule not to hurt the little brother.
"Oh, would you two just stop it?" asked the silver mech in an annoyed yet demanding tone, a palm on either of their chassis's as he looked from one to the other, showing that he was serious. After a moment of the twins staring each other down, the two finally relaxed, both frames seeming to slag a bit as both took a light step back, Nightwing giving a push to both as his arms dropped; Blackbird muttering something to himself and shaking his helm as Raven seemed to look to the floor in slight shame. "Good," Nightwing breathed as he nodded approvingly, he, too, seeming to relax more as well. "Now can we get back to our room, please? I am quite tired, thank you very much."
"Yeah, me, too," grumbled Raven as he turned to walk their designated path, turning Nightwing around to walk with him and clamping a servo on his "youngest brother's" shoulder plating; Blackbird giving a grumble of agreement as he followed on the side of the silver mech.
"How long d'ya think they'll last?" asked Blackbird after a little too long of the three of them walking in silence, their pedsteps echoing in the hallway. "I give'm two weeks tops."
"I say a month," bet Raven with a smirk, before looking to the mech in between them with a curious and yet mischievous expression. "What'd ya think, Nightwing?" he asked, trying to sound as innocent as possible.
"Oh, I cannot believe you two!" Nightwing instantly scorned as his door wings raised up a little, looking at either mech with a disbelieving look. "And to tell you the truth, I think they will be perfectly fine together, and I bet that they'll last a really long time, thank you very much!"
Oh, c'mon, 'Night!" Blackbird said in a slightly happy voice as they neared their room, Raven stepping away to punch in their room code. "We were only kidding, you know that! 'Sides, they seem perfect for each other, right, bro?"
"Oh, yeah," scoffed Raven as the door slid open with a hiss, taking a step back from the door to let Nightwing in first. "They're both easily angered, moody, mutes, and jus' 'bout ev'rybody seems a bit too paranoid 'bout them. Yeah, they're the perfect match."
"Well I think so," stated Nightwing as he scampered into their room, Raven the first to follow before Blackbird, the door hissing close behind the youngest twin.
Nightwing happily plopped down onto his berth, pushing his way under the covers as Blackbird turned off the lights and followed his brother to their shared berth; there were only two in the room, after all, and, being twins, Blackbird and Raven had decided to show some curdacy and give Nightwing his own berth while they share one. Raven was already on his side of the berth, which meant the edge that gained him the outside and the floor if he needed to get out of the berth quickly, making Blackbird climb over him with their usual tussling before they finally settled down, back to back with Raven facing the outside and Blackbird facing the wall. And all the while, this gave Nightwing a little time to think as the duo slowly drifted off into recharge. As he laid facing the ceiling, arms folded over of his covered armor, the silver colored mech gave a soft sigh; the sound going easily unheard in even the quiet room.
In all truth, he had been hoping that his guardian would find someone soon that would make him happy; and not just his charges, either. Nightwing was sure that Aquajet hadn't ever been in a real relationship with any other bot before, and, from what he had learned from sitting back and watching others around him, he was sure that Aquajet had liked KnockOut for a while now, and KnockOut had liked him as well. That was probably the only reason he had told the medic where his guardian's room was; so hopefully something could happen. Obviously it did, and Nightwing hoped that it would last longer than what Blackbird and Raven were guessing. Only time would tell, huh? Sighing, Nightwing pulled his blanket up past his shoulders as he rolled over and faced the wall, curling into the warmth around him as the snoring of the twins on the other berth echoed in the room, something that usually put him out like a light very quickly due to him being so used to the sound. Tonight was no different.
