Well here is the second chapter to this fanfiction where Arietta and Anise finally create the list and carry out prank number 1! Enjoy! :-)
Chapter 2: "Re-Decorating" Dist's room
Anise and Arietta sat in Anise's room and began writing down six ways of how they could annoy Dist. Arietta's liger had unexpectedly followed them into the room and it was starting to bug Anise a bit, especially since the liger kept giving her death glares.
"Erm… Arietta, does your liger friend have to stay in here? I'm not being nasty or anything but she keeps giving me death glares!"
"She only does that because she's very protective over me" Arietta explained. "Just ignore her!"
(That's what I've been trying to do for the past thirty minutes!) Anise screamed in her head.
Eventually the list was formed. What was written on the list was six ways of annoying Dist. They were the following:
1) "Re-Decorate" Dist's room
2) Steal something from one of the other God-Generals and pin the blame on Dist
3) Steal Dist's hover chair and fly around in it
4) "Re-organise" Dist's research
5) Hide Dist's revenge journal somewhere in his room but make it look like someone has stolen it
6) Re-wire Dist's hover chair so that it goes haywire
Anise grinned evilly at the list.
"This is perfect! I bet we can even break Dist at the first one!"
Anise passed the list to Arietta and allowed her to quickly scan through it.
"How are we going to do number 6?" She questioned. "Neither of us know about machines"
"I'll worry about that if we ever get to it. I doubt we will!" Anise boasted. "So, the first thing that we are supposed to do is "re-decorate" Dist's bedroom"
"How are we going to do that?"
"Well we could just mess things up a bit. Dist is someone who likes things to be organised, right? If one thing is even out of place by an inch, he goes into a rant"
"I don't know Anise… He may go into a rant but it might not be good enough to just move one object. Unless we trash the whole room, there is no way that we will be able to get our possessions back"
Anise thought about it for a moment.
"You've made a very good point there… Well in that case we are going to need some toilet paper, a lot of paint, some feathers and glue!"
"I'm sure if I ask around I could get some of the stuff. I'm sure my bird friends wouldn't mind me using some of their feathers"
Anise sighed heavily.
(I just hope she doesn't mention to them that I'm involved in this… I am not getting attacked by those birds again! Not after what happened the last time I made Gloomietta upset…)
Anise cringed at the thought of it.
"Right then, so I'll leave the feathers and toilet paper to you! I'll sort out the paint and the glue! We'll try and strike tonight so make sure you are wearing some dark clothing and a ski mask"
"Why do we have to wear a mask?" Arietta asked innocently.
"So Dist doesn't realise that it's us"
Arietta nodded understandingly.
Meanwhile in another part of the cathedral, Dist was making his way slowly down the corridor while staring into a mirror in his right hand.
"Oh my goodness Dist the Rose, you look absolutely stunning this morning! You are definitely very glamorous!" He mumbled to himself.
This was a usual routine for Dist. He would always from time to time glance at himself in the mirror and comment on his looks. This was frowned upon by many of the God-Generals since they found Dist to be big headed at times. Of course by doing this he wasn't watching where he was going. A sudden thud against his chair sent Dist flying forwards out of his chair. He landed on the floor flat on his face. The mirror he had been holding landed onto the floor but luckily didn't smash.
"Hey, watch where you're going, Reaper!" A familiar voice cried.
Dist slowly rose to his feet, picked up his mirror and swirled around to find Sync getting back onto his feet and rubbing the back of his head rigorously.
"It's Rose! R-O-S-E! Rose! Not Reaper!" He screeched. "And how dare you go and trip me up like that!"
Sync was fuming.
"I tripped you up? You weren't watching where you were going!" He retaliated.
Dist glanced towards something shining by Sync's foot. It looked like a small piece of a Fonstone. This was Sync's most prized possession; although no one knew why it was. Only Sync did; however he wouldn't tell anyone why. A smirk began to appear on Dist's face. He slyly walked towards Sync and snatched the piece of Fonstone from by his foot. He turned his hover chair back upright and slumped himself back into it.
"Until you show me some respect, I am confiscating your most prized possession!" Dist announced.
"You can't do that! I didn't even hurt you! Give it back Reaper!"
Sync leapt forward in a blur to try to grab it; however Dist shot forward in his hover chair. Sync landed flat on his face on the floor. Dist cackled evilly.
"Whoops! I guess you were too slow for the glamorous Dist the Rose!"
Dist zoomed off in his hover chair down the hallway. Sync began cursing under his breath.
(That Reaper is going to pay for taking that from me…)
Night time finally fell upon the cathedral. Not a single soul was lingering about in the hallways. It was so silent that you could even hear a pin drop. Waiting by the main entrance was Anise dressed in black clothing and a ski mask to hide her face. In her hands she was carrying a large pot of paint and a large pot of glue. She was waiting patiently for Arietta to arrive; however she appeared to be running late.
(Where the hell is Gloomietta?) Anise thought. (I told her to meet me here ten minutes ago! She isn't usually so tardy)
Anise glanced around at the darkened cathedral. She had never walked around the cathedral at night before and it did look creepier at night than it did in the day… Suddenly Anise felt a tiny and gentle tap on her shoulder. She leapt in the air with fright and went to let out a loud shriek of terror; however a hand was soon clasped around her mouth.
"Shush Anise! It's only me!" A familiar voice whispered from behind.
Anise yanked herself free of her captor's grip and swirled around to find Arietta dragging a large sack on the floor with her left hand.
"Arietta, don't sneak up on me like that!" Anise shouted in an angry whisper.
"I-I'm sorry Anise!" Arietta replied timidly. "I didn't mean it!"
Anise could see tears starting to build in her eyes. Anise sighed heavily.
"It's fine Arietta. It wasn't your fault. Come on. We need to be quick"
Arietta nodded understandingly. The two of them quickly dashed up the stairs towards Dist's room. Silently Anise opened the door and the two of them quietly tiptoed in. Arietta and Anise saw Dist curled up in ball on his bed with his thumb in his mouth. Anise began to giggle. Dist seemed to be a bigger baby than she had originally thought.
"Hey Anise, why don't we just steal our possession's back?" Arietta asked in a whisper. "I mean we are in here after all and Dist probably won't wake up"
"Dist maybe big headed about himself, but that doesn't mean he is not stupid. He's probably hidden it where we can't find it. And besides, this could count as payback from all the other times he's annoyed me!" Anise whispered back.
The two of them soon got to work. Arietta began using a brush to paint glue on both sides of Dist's bed and then she stuck a load of feathers on either side of it. Anise began rolling the toilet rolls all over the place and also left long lines of paint across the walls. It took the duo an hour before everything was completed. Long lines of paint were spread across the walls. Toilet paper was placed over the top of many of the objects in the room. Feathers had been scattered along the sides of Dist's bed and Arietta had even gone as far as to stick one on his forehead. With their work done, the duo disposed of the evidence and returned to their rooms for the night.
(Tomorrow the fun will begin…) Anise thought in her head.
"NO! WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS!"
Dist's voice sounded loudly throughout the cathedral. The voice had managed to reach Anise's ears. Her eyes flashed open as she quickly sat up in bed. She leapt out of her bed and tossed her covers aside roughly. Still in her pink nightie and running bare footed, she dashed down the corridor towards Dist's room. She found Largo, Legretta and Asch fully dressed outside of Dist's door. The door appeared to be closed. Arietta soon dashed up the other side of the corridor with her liger friend beside her. She was still wearing her light purple nightie and was also bare footed.
"Is everything all right?" Anise asked slyly.
"Well with Dist's loud cry it doesn't seem like everything is ok…" Largo replied gruffly.
"Who's going to be the one to open the door then?" Arietta asked timidly.
All eyes turned to Asch as he stood there with his eyes closed. He was lost in thought. When he opened them he found everyone staring at him patiently waiting for him to move. Asch's eyes widened.
"Why are you all staring at me like that?" He questioned, annoyed.
"You're the one who is going to open the door" Largo answered.
Asch rolled his eyes.
"And why should I?"
"You're the only one who doesn't seem concerned about the situation" Legretta replied with narrowed eyes.
Asch sighed annoyed.
"Fine, fine, I'll open the damn door!"
He walked over to it quickly and gripped the doorknob tightly. He thrust the door forwards to open it. Asch, Legretta and Largo cautiously entered the room. Anise and Arietta slowly followed behind. All three God-Generals mouths opened wide at the sight of the room. It looked even worse during the daylight. Anise and Arietta smirked at their little handy work from last night. Dist was trembling on his bed with his arms wrapped tightly around his legs. He was rocking backwards and forwards and his eyes were widened. Anise couldn't help but to snicker at the sight of Dist. He had really freaked out about this. Arietta giggled a little when she noticed Dist still had the feather glued to his head. Anise found it unusual that Sync was nowhere to be seen. He is usually the one to be first to situations like this.
"Dist, what on earth happened here?" Legretta questioned.
Dist halted and sat there as still as a statue on his bed. His eyes narrowed and he gave Legretta a death glare.
"Why don't you tell me?" He stated angrily. "One of you little misfits has trespassed into my quarters and disorganised everything! I, the fabulous Dist the Rose, will not tolerate such behaviour, especially since that same misfit stuck a feather to my forehead! You tell Van that until the criminal responsible for this is found, I refuse to do any missions!"
"You can't say that" Largo replied coldly. "If you disobey Van then you should know what consequences are waiting for you…"
Dist sighed angrily. Asch began to snicker.
"And what are you laughing at "left over ashes of the sacred flame"?" Dist questioned angrily.
"I cannot take you seriously with that feather stuck to your forehead!" Asch replied.
Dist's face turned scarlet with anger.
"Then remove it from my forehead!"
A small devil smile appeared on Asch's face.
"I'll happily do that!"
He strode over towards Dist's bed and yanked the feather from his forehead. Dist screeched out in agony. Anise and Arietta were trying so hard not to laugh.
"I bet it was Sync!" He cried. "That insolent teenager probably did this out of revenge! He's the only one that hasn't bothered to show up yet-"
"I think we should leave Dist to his own little rant…" Largo whispered to the others.
The five of them quietly snuck out of the room and quietly closed the door behind them. Later that day, Arietta and Anise sat in Anise's room laughing their heads off.
"I can't believe Dist reacted like that!" Anise cried. "If only Dist could have seen his own facial expressions! He looked so hilarious!"
"I know but I don't think we have broken him yet…" Arietta stated.
She glanced down at her lap miserably. She felt so lonely without her doll. Anise also found it weird without Tokunaga on her back. She sighed.
"I guess we'll just have to move onto the second thing on list"
Anise felt around in her pockets until she came across the small piece of paper. She opened it out and found the second thing on the list.
"Number 2: Steal something from one of the other God-Generals and pin the blame on Dist"
"Which God-General are we going to steal from?" Arietta asked.
"I don't know but I'll need some time to think about it. Come back to me later and I'll probably have come up with something by then"
Arietta nodded. She quietly left Anise's room and began making her own way back to her own room. When she reached her bedroom door, her animal senses were telling her that something was wrong. Arietta slowly opened her bedroom door and popped her head around it. Nothing appeared to be out of the ordinary, except for the fact that her liger friend was missing. Arietta left her door wide open and continued to slowly walk into the room step by step. Just as she reached her bed, her door behind her slammed shut. She froze.
"So, what has our little Arietta been up to recently?" A familiar voice asked from behind.
Arietta slowly turned around to find a familiar green haired God-General smirking at her while leaning his back against the door casually. His arms were folded.
"Oh no, Sync!" Arietta gasped.
