A/N: Something stupid I wrote up. I thought it was kinda cute. Yes, yes, I know, I should be working on the next chapter of Survival... sigh. But I just couldn't resist.

On the island of Metru Nui, the Toa Metru were hard at work to gather up all the Matoran spheres to transport them to their new island paradise. Well, most of them were working.

One brown Toa of Stone was instead hiding behind a conviently placed boulder and spying on Nokama and Nuju, who were working together to bring some spheres to the ships.

Onewa's eyes remained fixed on the white Toa of Ice, as a michievious grin spread onto the lips of his mask. "Look at him! So quiet, so relaxed, so foolish... he has no idea what's about to happen to him." his eyes glistened in the sun. "It's time for a little revenge, after he made a fool of me before..."


"Hey Onewa."



Nuju tossed a chunk of the broken boat Lhikan II via Mask of Telekinisis and smashed against Onewa's face, knocking him off of his feet.

As Onewa lay on the ground moaning, Nuju turned to Whenua, a smug look on his face. "Tolja I could hit him. Gimme my three widgets."

End Flashback

Onewa continued to glare. Use his mask power on me, will he? Two can play at that game...

"Hey, Nuju. I need help rolling some of these spheres down to the beach." Nokama explained as she jabbed a thumb towards two Matoran spheres lying on the ground. "Would you lend me a hand?"

"Sure, why not." Nuju replied, little emotion in his voice. "I don't have anything else to do."

"Great! Let's start rolling. You can take the one on the left and- uhhh... Nuju?" Nokama paused, looking up at her friend quizzically. "Are... you feeling okay? You look kinda... queasy..."

Nuju just stared at her hungrily. "No... no, I'm fine..."

"Okay... so, uh you take the left one-"

Suddenly, without warning, Nuju pounced. He grabbed her in his arms tilted her forward, thrusting his lips onto her's. Too surprised to react, Nokama could only just stand there, and kiss him back.

Nuju's eyes widened suddenly as he broke the kiss. Then, he did something that no-one had ever thought he could do.

He panicked.

"Mata Nui, Nokama! I-I-I-I didn't meant to...! I didn't want... It wasn't..." Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed a faint brown light glow from behind a rock. Suddenly it all made sense.


"Crud!" Onewa hissed, his Mask of Mind Control still glowing. "Uhh... gottagobye!" with that, he took off running, followed closely by a severely ticked off Nuju.

Nokama, meanwhile, remained silent, still stunned by the event.

What... did he just do? she wondered. And how can I get him to do it again?
