Slang, a pretty but expressionless or unintelligent woman. I.e. "She's nothing more than a doll."



[ Dirty Paws | Of Monsters and Men ]



Dɪᴀʟᴏɢᴜᴇ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✦ #66CDAA || Tʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✧ #008B8B



It was the same reoccurring nightmare, the one where the body hung from the rafters of the attic, a makeshift noose tightened around the being's throat; her body half eaten. There was another Being in the room, his hands and mouth covered in blood and a sick smile twisted across his lips as he turned and reached for the human. A scream ripped from Doll's body, her eyes flying open as she sat up in bed, panting. Someone grabbed her and forced Doll back into a laying position as she clawed at the air, yelling for the person not to touch her. "It's alright, you're alright. Nothing here is going to hurt you Loretta," her real name. It was something given to her by the first Being she had encountered, a sweet older one that had died once Doll was of age to be placed in a zoo. Only one person knew what it was and that was Master Atarashi.

The tears in her eyes began to dry, leaving a sticky feeling on her face. Thankfully the office she was made to sleep in until she could share with Rose and Sara was sound proof; or at least it muffled whatever noises were made in this space. Dr. Atarashi had brought Doll here on the grounds that he could heal her better in a smaller, safer environment but like every other Being's home she had ever been to, Doll was no guest. She was a pet and as far as owners went her new one was not the worst. "Why don't you get ready for the day?" Dr. Atarashi suggested quietly, releasing his hold on her since Doll had seemed to calm down. The blonde nodded her head and sat up, wiping the remnants of tears from her eyes so that Kiku would not see that she had been crying.

Today the outfit laid out for her today was a blue dress with a white apron. She recognized it as a story book character but the name escaped her. Doll shut her eyes and tilted her head, attempting to remember who it was but to no avail. She sighed and ran a brush through her long locks, braiding them quickly and exiting the room. Doll tugged at the collar around her throat, the lights blinking every few seconds to ensure it was on. The thing only had to functions, to keep track of her and ensure that Doll couldn't leave the property. The collar was a safety measure due to the events of her first day on the estate. After the initial shock of moving wore off Doll had gone into hiding. She hadn't left the estate, she just hid in the gardening shed behind a tall pot of unplanted tulips; scared to death after Zero's interrogation and being bombarded by questions.

Doll entered the kitchen, the humans had a separate eating space and only ate in the dining room when invited. She was either the first to arrive or was so late that the others had all eaten, Doll wasn't sure but one glance at the clock across the space indicated it was still morning. "Morning Doll," the Atarashi's chef said, waving his spatula in greeting. "Good morning Grell," Doll replied and sat at the table, delighted when he put a plate of eggs with cheese and vegetables in front of her. The human dug in, eating her fill rather quickly and taking a swig of water. Should she wait to see if the others would come? Or go up to Kiku? Doll fidgeted in her seat as she thought and decided she should face her Master.

She walked up the two flights of stairs to his room, hesitating as she raised her arm to knock. "Kiku?" Doll tapped her fist against the door twice before opening the door a splice to peek inside. The room was dark, the blackout curtains drawn shut. Should she come back later or wake him up? Was he even in bed? Doll couldn't tell as the room was pitch black. She stepped inside, fear quickly crawling up her spine. Doll stepped out once more and shut the door, sliding against it until she was sitting on the ground with her arms around her knees. She would wait out here where it was light, yes that was a much better idea.

"I’m going to take a nap. Call me when something happens."

It would be incorrect to say that Thanyos was an early waker or a late sleeper. See, that would assume that he had regular sleeping habits. Much to the chagrin of his father, mother, and Zero, Thanyos seemed to reject all logic and slept whenever he wanted and wherever he wanted. To make matters worse, he never slept for more than five hours in one stretch. The night before he had been up for most of the night, entertaining himself by plotting and playing a few games with Kiki. But eventually the younger boy had to sleep and Thanyos, left to his own devices, had watched his favorite action movie ever: a human movie from more than a century ago called Top Gun. He had fallen asleep about halfway in, curled up on the large couch with a massive pile of blankets around him, and that was how he woke up in the morning.

Yawning and stretching much like a cat, Thanyos sat up and rubbed the sleep out of his eyes. He glanced at the television, which was playing (on loop) the menu for Top Gun. He grinned and was about to hit play when his stomach rumbled.I should get something to eat... The being sighed and rolled off the couch, landing quite comfortably in the pile of blankets that had been kicked off while he slept. Turning the television off, Thanyos didn't bother to clean up after himself before walking to the kitchen. None of the humans were there, though the cook was preparing some of their food.

"Morning. Have any of the humans woken up yet?" Thanyos asked, honestly curious. Part of him hoped that his own, Rosalinda (but everyone called her Rosa) was awake. She would generally play his games and she was fun to have around when Kiki was too busy with his own things or, even worse, wanted to read. But Grell told him that only Doll, Kiki's human, had woken up so far. "Thanks. I'll have to pay her a visit." Thanyos honestly liked all the humans (even Atticus, who was a bit annoying but was also fun to have around) but he liked playing jokes on them because, unlike Zero, they couldn't do anything back to him. It was just easier.

After grabbing a handful of chocolates (Grell didn't mind as long as he ate his meals too) and the equivalent of an energy bar, Thanyos dashed up the the stairs, well aware of the noise he was making and not really caring. It wasn't too early in the morning and his siblings needed to wake up soon anyway. Kiki's room was on one of the highest levels of the mansion and it took two flights of stairs for Thanyos to get there. Doll, unsurprisingly, was sitting on the ground waiting for her being to wake up. Thanyos adopted his usual smile and waved at her.

"Morning, Doll. Waiting for my brother?" Thanyos asked, stepping closer. He knew that she was one of the more… nervous humans and didn't want to scare her. He had the funny idea that, once he got to know her better, she'd join him and Kiki in their pranks. Rosa too, but Thanyos had the feeling that it would be harder to convince her to join them. Doll was a little easier to convince of things. "Did you sleep ok?" Thanyos added after a moment, not quite sure what to say to help keep Doll calm. Usually he just interacted with his siblings after all.

Not sleeping was becoming a regular occurrence for Rosa, ever since she became a Pet she only slept a few hours every night and the rest of the night she would be up reading. At the moment she was curling up in a white cushioned chair beside the only window in the girl's shared room. It was a medium sized room with pale green walls and white carpeted floors, three beds shared the area along with bedside tables for each and three small dresser's on the opposite side of the room. One of the beds was just recently prepared, Rosa having done it in the early morning. The bed was for their newer member, Doll. With a sigh Rosa dogtagged her page and stood up stretching before putting her book on her bedside table. She quickly got ready for the day, putting her bright hair up into a bun and dressing in a sundress given to her by the mistress of the household.

Rosa then made her way to the kitchen, greeting the Atarashi's cook Grell. "Morning". Grell glanced away from the stove to look at her with a smile "Good morning he greeted cheerfully before handing Rosa a plate of eggs and fruit. Rosa's stomach growled loudly at the delicious scene and she sat at the table, quickly devouring her meal. She washed her dish and was about to leave when Grell called to her. "Rosa I have to leave right after lunch and Mr.Atarashi had requested a make a batch of sweets today. I don't have time so I was hoping you would be able to help me?" he asked, a slight pleading tone laced his voice. Rosa nodded in conformation making Grell smile brightly before thanking her. Rosa grabbed an apron and started on the first sweet treat that was on the list Grell handed to her. Rice crispy treats were the first item on the list so she started on those.

Lightly singing to herself Rosa started on the list of things to do. The Rice Crispy mix was quickly done and she put it in a pan and placed it in the preheated oven. She then started on the gummy mix and chocolate chip mix. By the time she was done the rice crispy treats were done, taking them out she placed them on a rake to cool then put the tray of raw cookies into the oven. The jello mixture was done and she poured it into a random shapes tray before putting it into the fridge. She then started on a tray of toffee and lastly the truffle cheesecake for the Being's desert tonight. Rosa didn't know how long she was in the kitchen for but by the time she finished Grell was gone. She slightly remembered some other's coming into the kitchen, maybe even talking to her but Rosa had been so involved in her baking she hadn't really noticed.

With a soft sigh she placed the last item on the list, a apple cherry pie, in the fridge and started cleaning up her mess while marking off the list. Rice crispy treats, gummies, chocolate chip cookies, toffee, truffle cheesecake, blueberry squares and apple cherry pie, yep that's all of it, thank god" she huffed. Rosa finished cleaning up then left the kitchen in search of Thanyos.

Doll had nearly fallen asleep, her head lulled to the side against the door as she waited for Kiku to awaken. A sudden voice startled her and she jumped to her feet, alert. It was just Thanyos passing by the door. He wasn't wearing his usual trouble making smile and seemed to have just woken up. Doll bowed slightly, attempting to remember her manners and smiled shyly. "Yes, I'm not sure if he's still asleep and didn't wish to disturb him." She straightened and nodded her head at the second question, not wanting to bother Thanyos with her problems. "I slept well thank you. What about you?" She lied. Doll wasn't about to tell anyone about the nightmares that haunted her every time she closed her eyes. For a while Doll had quit trying to fall asleep, which hadn't been a good idea because apparently the mind needed rest to keep your sanity intact. She slid back down, hugging her knees once more. Doll rest her head against her kneecaps, hoping that Kiku would be awake soon so that they could do something.

"Did you already eat breakfast?" Doll asked then, her shy smile remaining on her lips. Thanyos was an odd one, he definitely wasn't as bad as Fuko and was much more outgoing than Zero. She was glad she wasn't his pet though because Doll could tell it would have been hard to keep up with his mood swings. They all had that problem, one minute one of the Beings could be happy and singing at the top of their lungs, the next they would be lashing out at you for the smallest of misdemeanors. Doll was trying her best to keep from upsetting Kiku and for the week she had been in the Atarashi household she had managed to keep her Master happy.

"Where is Rosa, is she still asleep?" Doll questioned, tilting her head to the side. She hadn't seen any of the humans all morning, it was as if Atticus, Rosa, and Sara were all hiding. It could also be because this house was so big? Doll hadn't even had a chance to explore it all. She decided that later on she would ask Kiku to show her around. Doll had gotten a quick tour upon arrival, but only to basic areas like the kitchen, bedrooms, and living room. There was a show room the humans were not allowed into unless the Mistress of the house was entertaining and felt like showing them off. Now that Doll thought about it there were quite a few places they were not allowed into, most belonging to Mistress Atarashi.

Thanyos' smile grew as Doll asked him if he had breakfast already. While some of the more vicious beings still ate human (in fact in some circles it was considered a delicacy) he had never liked the taste. Then again, he had only had human once so he wasn't exactly an expert. Either way, he wasn't about to eat any of the humans, no matter how obnoxious or poorly behaved they might become. That wouldn't stop him from joking about it of course. He loved to play pranks that involved others screaming in terror. Their reactions made it all the more fun after all.

"I have, thank you." Thanyos cocked his head to one side at Doll's second question. That was a fair question, actually. The redheaded human was much different from the others in her spitfire personality that matched her hair; while she could be calm and peaceful one moment the next she'd be yelling at the top of her lungs. Of course Thanyos liked his human, but sometimes he wondered what went through her head. "I don't know if she's awake yet. I'm certain she'll find me if she is," Thanyos replied.

I hope Kiki wakes up soon, the being thought as he glanced at the door. He wanted to play a game with his brother and set up the day's pranks. Not to say that Doll was poor company, she just wasn't as interesting as Thanyos' brother. Almost every other being in the house had, at some point, wished that they could separate Kiki and Thanyos if just for one day of peace. That had yet to happen and their parents had yet to find anything that could calm the two down. At least Kiki liked books, but Thanyos… Not so much. I wonder if the humans are supposed to be here for something… Nah. Thanyos doubted that the human additions to the family were any more than their father apologizing for not being around very often.

"I don't suppose you've watched Top Gun?" Thanyos asked suddenly, grin growing. He moved closer to Doll until they were only a few feet apart, his excitement at being able to show someone else his favorite movie taking over his more thoughtful side. "It's a really, really, really good movie. I'll make Kiki show it to you and I can show my human at the same time!" Thanyos' smile showed off his slightly pointed teeth, though it was clear that he thought this was a good idea and expected Doll to approve.

Sara awoke to an empty room, the sunlight and faint sound of chirping birds being the only thing to assure she was awake and not still dreaming. It seemed Rosa had already woken up and left. Not at all surprising, since the older girl usually woke up early. Sitting up, Sara sighed lightly and carefully got up, keeping her eyes on the floor as she stood. There had been countless incidents with her previous Master leaving tacks by her bed for when Sara got up in the morning and she hardly wanted to go through that again.

Much to her surprise, the outfit that had been laid out for Sara to wear that day wasn't the odd orange and brown uniform, but instead her own personal clothing that she'd picked out before. It was definitely more comfortable than a skirt, and so she quickly dressed in the black shorts, white tank top, and teal blue sweater. She'd also been gifted a pair of black leather boots, which she actually loved, despite being terribly frightened when she'd received them from Mistress Atarashi.

When Sara entered the kitchen, the smell of sweets and pastries was overwhelming in the decently small room. It was also quite warm in there, much to her discomfort. "Good morning, Sara." Grell was happy as usual, and Sara nodded a greeting to him as she took a seat, slowly eating the food he'd set out for her. Looking over to Rosa, Sara was impressed. The redhead was concentrating hard on whatever she was cooking and the younger girl assumed she was helping Grell with his chores. Sara thought it was very kind.

Grell left only a moment after Sara had finished eating, and since Rosa was occupied, she made her way out of the kitchen and started to look around. It was still early in the morning, and Sara made it a point not to wake anyone, whether on accident or not. In order to adhere to her self-set rule she commonly spent the mornings in her room drawing or walking around the house, admiring the art on the walls and the scenery outside. Granted, it was probably rare for a human to care about the little things while still being a slave...

Sara had never really thought of the situation as slavery. With her previous Masters? Definitely. But with Zero? It wasn't really slavery, he let her do what she wanted most of the time. He was quiet like her and because of that the two rarely spoke, despite spending most of their time together. He hadn't ever hurt her, nor yelled at her, not even raised his voice. Things were peaceful. In all honesty, Sara feared his siblings more than him. Especially Fuko, with her fearful aura and that God-awful gleam in her child-like eyes.

Looking around, Sara noticed that she'd grown bored of seeing the same paintings every morning, and so instead she traveled up the stairs to find her Master's bedroom and see if maybe - a hopeful maybe - he'd already be awake.

“I AM NOT THE KIND OF BEING WHO COULD BE YOUR FRIEND. AFTER ALL, I'M NOT HUMAN, AND YOU'LL NEVER TRUST ME.”


The Monster | Eminem

DIALOGUEᴇ Color ✦ #853c41 || THOUGHT COLOR✧ GREY




EIGHT-YEAR-OLD Zero Kisaragi gripped the bars of his cage only to shrink back when the electrical wires snapped at his contact. So they'd upgraded his little prison with electric voltz for all the times he'd tried escaping with Ren and always got caught or found days later. He glanced across at his brother who was in his own cage, laying on his side. The boy's sunken gaze averted his, the once chubby, cute face all angles and sharpness, bones protruded from his skin, and why wouldn't he be? Zero was in the same condition along with everyone else trapped in their little prisons. Alone. Helpless.

"Zero."

Ren barely whispered the name.

"Yeah?" He sent back out of habit.

"Overalls wants me to kill."

"No!" Zero inhaled sharply through his nose, whiffing awful smells. Smells he'd grown used to.

Ren's gunmetal eyes so much like his own gazed back, wide and yet resolved. "You know what'll happen if I don't."

Zero shoved his hand through the bars winced at the sharp lance of agony shooting up his arm so that he could reach Ren's cage. Rattle, rattle.

"We made a promise remember?"

Silence.

"Ren, hey, we're gonna get outta here. I swear. Just hold up a little longer. I'll get us out."

The new girl across from him begged for help, preyed, but Zero felt too ashamed to tell her no one would. She looked just a fragile, but life still colored her skin. Maybe she had a fighting.chance. Maybe not.

Kids around then moaned and wailed, mostly from pain or hunger. Last night, Zero only had slop, he hated the bitter taste but always licked his bowl clean. They weren't given spoons. They were kept in dog crates, just like dogs and never let out, not even to use the bathroom.

But at the sound of the metal rod striking against iron and reinforced steel bars, Zero tensed and sat up straight, his mind dizzy and stomach burning from nothingness.

"Time for another round my little mutts." Their Keeper, a squat man in old overalls and a face hidden behind a torn leather mask walked down their aisle. Rod with a million Volta of electricity in one hand, two dog collars in the other. He hesitated before their cages.

He turned to Ren's cage and popped it open, reached in a meaty hand, wrung the collar around Ren's scrawny throat and yanked him out. The boy stumbled on shaking limbs.

Then Overalls turned to the praying girl who shrieked when he wrapped her in a collar and despite her fear she came out on her own, still strong enough to move freely.

"Try your freaky powers on me and I'll cut you up." He gave his back to Zero assured he wouldn't do anything.

"This--isn't right, girls are never pitted against boys--stop!" He pounded bony fists and weak vectors against his confinement but wasn't able to break out. His vectors shrinking from the shocks, more sensitive, raw.

"You don't give me orders brat, it's what the crowd wants. They get."

He dragged Ren and the girl, Kira away.

Zero strained to listen as the fight took place above, he knew when it started when beings shouted instructions like, "Rip his vectors off!" and "Cut her face off!" He trembled with fury, fear, and pain waiting for the outcome.

And when it finally came he--



Zero's eyelids popped open.
Barely able to catch his breath as the nightmare receded, he realized he was drenched in cold sweat, his body on fire. He did a quick scan of his bedroom. He was alone. His thick black-out curtains were drawn, and the only light source was the crimson pulsing from his vectors.
His vectors. Shit! He jackknifed to his feet and studied them. The extra mutant limbs were raw from his determined suppression, jerky. Again.

Scowling, he wrenched his eyes over his bed. Despite durable sheets, both flame-retardant and tougher than cotton, he'd left singe marks behind. Some of the material was also torn in some places. The wall had been nearly smashed, plaster littered the bed, dusted his head.Gotta get a grip on this thing. His heart drummed erratically against his ribs, blood molten in his veins.

Zero hated dreaming about his past, the one after he'd been taken away from his parents. Especially hated the particular memory. At least you didn't dream about the next night.

With a deep intake of breath he pulled in the vectors with effort, then let it go. Shaking with still raw nerves he lumbered to the bathroom so he could shower off another restless night. With quick precision he dressed in a black shirt and jeans, paired with boots and a comfortable flannel shirt. A little better now he slipped out his room silent as night.

"Let the game begin."



Dɪᴀʟᴏɢᴜᴇ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✦ #5c9120 || Tʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✧ #912020







As the noise from outside reached Kiku's ears, he stirred and awoke, eyelids fluttering open to a pair of bright gold eyes. At first, he was puzzled. It was not often that he slept, usually spending night after night in his room reading or tinkering on machines. The idea of being in a comatose state in which you hallucinate wildly never quite appealed to him, so he never expected that he would fall asleep out of exhaustion. However, he was pleasantly surprised by the fact that this time at least, he didn't have any nightmares. They usually consisted of blood and the dead bodies of family members. It was troubling, but they weren't as bad as Zero's. That was something to be thankful for. He pulled on a white coat with long sleeves, red target patterns painted on them in perfect circles. They were not too commonly seen, but he wasn't his fashionable mother. He wears anything that was comfortable for him.

He could hear Thanyo's voice, loud and cheerful, the excitement obvious in his tone. And then, there was the soft and shy tone of Doll, his pet. If he tried hard enough, he could hear Zero's cool voice and Rosa's huffy one. A smile crept up on his lips as he sat up in bed, swinging his legs over the side. The chess pieces were all in place, now its time to have some fun. His eyes moved to Doll's figure leaning at the door, and with quick movement he moved up to give her a tight squeeze behind her back as a greeting. He was being polite to a species he hadn't met before, and after all, aren't hugs considered a form of affection for them? Humans were hard to puzzle out.

"Are you bullying Doll now?" Kiku turned to Thanyos, his tone lightly playful and teasing. "You shouldn't scare off the pets after a few days, you know. That's Zer and Fuko's job." He smiled at the idea of his calm and organised brother intimidating someone with his silence, or his sister simply scaring them off with her ways. They really were a fun family.

A thought came to him suddenly, and his eyes filled with a childish mischief "Who next?" Thynos usually came up with their pranks, and Kiku was more than happy to help him execute it with gadgets and plans. Today was going to be brilliant. "Doll, do you want to join in?" He spoke after some hesitation. Hewas sure that his father brought the humans in for a certain reason. He is a doctor in psychology after all, and that should be reason enough to believe that all his actions have a certain purpose. Kick wasn't so sure now, but he remained a little unnaturally polite to his human. It was hard to communicate with someone you didn't feel close to or trust, but he took the initiative to include her in their conversation. He didn't think of her as a pet, more of a unknown acquaintance, and was just as cautious as she was in approaching her.

The way his smile grew was making Doll even more nervous. What did he eat that would make him grin like that? Doll wondered if it was human. It was illegal to eat them nowadays but that didn't stop some. When Doll was in the zoo she had heard about black market deals and sometimes humans would disappear, never to be heard from again. The thought sent shivers down her spine, but Doll did not give away her displeasure. She would remain perfectly pleasant, or at least try her best not to break down in front of the Beings. Doll did not want them to know how weak she truly was. The human didn't know what Rosa's relationship with Thanyos was like but the boy sounded quite fond of the human. The blonde hoped that in the future she and Kiku would grow that close.

"No, I'm afraid I haven't." She shook her head at the unfamiliar sounding movie, flinching when Thanyos moved closer to her. "That sounds nice, I would greatly enjoy watching with you all." Top Gun? What an odd name, but Doll wasn't going to judge considering what everyone called her. The door opened from behind, if Doll hadn't been leaning forward she would have surely fallen backwards onto the floor. A set of arms wrapped tightly around her middle, pulling Doll to her feet. Thankfully she had grown accustomed to Kiku's way of greeting people. She was still not used to being touched unexpectedly but Doll had mentally prepared herself as soon as the door opened.

"No, he wasn't bullying me, w-we were just talking about movies." Doll quickly came to Thanyos's defense, attempting to keep her tone light and to not sound defensive. Doll couldn't help but stifle a giggle at Kiku's statement. Fuko was a bit scary, from what Doll had seen of her she was not one the human would associate with. Zero on the other hand... Was just as scary. He was quiet, as though he were silently plotting and waiting to strike. Doll tilted her head to the side at the question that was aimed at Thanyos; whose next? A target? She glanced at the sleeves of Kiku's shirt, perhaps that was why they were there?

"Oh yes, I would very much like to be included." Doll replied cautiously, wondering if they were going to get in trouble for whatever the two boys were about to do. She could hear Zero and Sara down the hall, it seems the two had just woken up. Perhaps they were the target? Or maybe it was Atticus and Fuko? Doll smoothed down the white apron of her dress and waited, hoping she wouldn't slow them down and that they wouldn't mind her company.

Thanyos couldn't help but frown when he heard that Doll hadn't watched the movie. He made up his mind that both he and Kiki would have to show their humans. After all, you couldn't keep an uneducated human! That is, one who didn't know about culture. I wonder if Rosa has seen the movie… I doubt it. For some reason, she didn't strike Thanyos as the kind of human to enjoy that kind of a movie, but Thanyos knew he could get her to watch it eventually.

Right as Thanyos was about to reply, he noticed Kiki slip out the door and hug his human. It was a bit of a bizarre move for Kiki, but Thanyos thought it was good that his brother got along with his human. Thanyos made a face when his brother asked if he was being mean to the human. Doll, however, replied before Thanyos could. So she wants to stay on my good side… or she likes me too. Thanyos wasn't sure but he didn't mind.

"Fuko and Zero aren't that scary," Thanyos cut in. He thought that Fuko's tricks were a bit mean sometimes, but she meant well and she had never truly hurt anyone to the best of his knowledge. And Zero could be stern, especially after a particularly messy or explosive (literally) prank. But neither was that mean. "Hmmm well I had a few ideas but it depends on whether or not you feel like running today." Most of Thanyos' pranks resulted in him and Kiki running from one (or more) people. Occasionally they were caught but more often than not they were able to escape.

Of course the running away while laughing, chased by someone covered in who knows what (or holding something, or having just crushed a bug, or basically whatever Thanyos had thought up) was half the fun. The other half was actually plotting and carrying out what he considered to be pretty genius ideas. Maybe we should try putting spiders in the laundry again… Or we can glue the chairs to the ceiling again! That particular prank had been extremely entertaining.

Wait, what? Thanyos blinked a few times in surprise as he heard Kiki actually invite Doll to join them in their prank. It wasn't that the human was a bad person. In fact, Thanyos could grow to like her. But none of his pranks had room for three people. It just never was an issue. Fuko had never wanted to join them and neither Kiki nor Thanyos wanted to ask Zero if he wanted to join them. All the servants had learned to avoid the two boys when they pranked people. I'm really confused… Thanyos smiled, though it was less certain than before.

"Well if there's going to be three of us then I have a special little prank to pull today," Thanyos replied, recovering quickly from his initial disappointment and confusion. He raised a hand and adopted an expression of deep thought. He enjoyed being dramatic when it came to his pranks. After all, they did consist of the vast majority of his time. "Our mission today is one that has never successfully been done before. Are you ready to hear what difficult, no, impossible task we have?" Thanyos asked, leaning closer to his two cohorts.

His regular grin morphed into the one when his trickster mind was turning, the very edges of his teeth visible between his lips. If one looked into his eyes, you could see a bright gleam in them. Thanyos was very, very, serious when it came to his pranks. And this was one was a life-long dream for the being.

"We are going to steal tonight's dessert and eat it all by ourselves."

Rosa had decided to go back to the bedroom to change out of her soiled clothing, having flour, melted chocolate and who knows what else on her dress and face. Walking into the pale green bedroom Rosa immediately went into the small on suite bathroom she and the other girls shared. She quickly cleaned up, stripping off her summer dress and replacing it with pair of faded blue jeans, a light blue blouse and white ballet flats. She also took notice that Sara was now gone. Rosa grabbed her worn out book, a horror mystery novel, and left the bedroom and continued her search for Thanyos but quickly stopped by the kitchen again to grab a couple of extra cookies.

It took her a little while of wondering the rich colored halls of the manor but she finally found him with Doll and Kiku. "Hello" she called out once she reached them, noticing the devilish glint in Thanyos's blue eyes, she knew that look. That trickster was planning something. Him and his darn pranks. Rosa's mentally sighed at the boy before her attention then focused on Doll and she smiled brightly at the younger blonde girl.

"Hi Doll, I set up your section of the room so you can move your things in now" Rosa told her kindly then took a bite of her cookie. "Want one? Their chocolate chip and fresh from this morning" Rosa offered, holding out a cookie for her. Then she turned to Thanyos and held out the other cookie she had "You will have to spilt it with Kiku" she told him, knowing the boy wouldn't take sharing his sweets well. He basically lived off sugar. 'Sugar, spice and everything sneaky.....okay that was lame even for me, jeez' her thoughts were as lame as her jokes, dry and humorless. In a way Thanyos parents had paired them well, Rosa having a sense of humor but was horrible at being funny and Thanyos being a childish prankster. Rosa couldn't help but like Thanyos cause he was the only one who has made her laugh in along time. "Sorry I couldn't grab more I only made enough for dinner, these smaller ones are made from leftover dough" she informed them while breaking the cookie in half and placing it to the boys before placing the other whole cookie in Doll's hand.

"So what evil plots are you planning?" she asked glancing back over at Thanyos.

Kiku felt the slightest sense of worry creep up on him when he saw Thanyos blink a few times, presumably in surprise. Did he make a wrong move? Thanyos seemed to get along with Doll so far, so he figured that it would be a good idea to ask her to join in. Of course, it was the first time they had invited someone else in on their pranks, as most of the time people would be trying to run after or away from them. Definately not with them. With Thanyos’s mood swings, it made him quite nervous to think of what might happen if he reacted strongly to that idea. Kiku wasn’t as calming a presence as his elder brother Zero. Thankfully, his smile came back again, despite being a little confused. He made a mental reminder not to surprise him next time.


"Well if there's going to be three of us then I have a special little prank to pull today,"Kiku grinned at his expression of deeply thinking. His brother was back to his dramatic and mischievous self. "Our mission today is one that has never successfully been done before. Are you ready to hear what difficult, no, impossible task we have?" Thaynos continued, leaning closer to them and raising the tense atmosphere. One could almost see the gears of his mind turning when his eyes gained a bright gleam and his grin widened to reveal his sharp canines.


"We are going to steal tonight's dessert and eat it all by ourselves." Kiku’s eyes widened with surprise and anticipation. This was a prank that they had been planning to execute for years, and never succeeded. Not to mention it might incur the wrath of Fuko. Still, she ought to be prepared for this to happen sooner or later with them around. This was going to be a prank to remember if they succeed.

"Hi Doll, I set up your section of the room so you can move your things in now""Want one? Their chocolate chip and fresh from this morning" "You will have to split it with Kiku" "Sorry I couldn't grab more I only made enough for dinner, these smaller ones are made from leftover dough" Rosalinda, Thaynos’s maid joined their little trio, causing him to step back subconciously. If there’s one person he didn’t want on his back, it would be her. Even Zero, the usual peacekeeper of their pranks, wasn’t so easily agitated like the woman with fiery hair. Not to mention the fact that she doesn’t hesitate to scold them either. All factors considered, it was as good as a BEWARE! EASILY FLAMMABLE sign slapped over her.

Wait, was she trying to make them split the cookie? A look of annoyance flashed across his eyes, vanishing as quickly as it entered. He was awfully particular about his sweets. But again, it wasn’t a death penalty not to give him his full share, or at least that was what his father told him. Instead, he opted for a sickly sweet smile. “Thany can take it.” Again, his polite way of dealing with things kicked in as he handed his half to Thaynos. "So what evil plots are you planning?" He stifled a soft sigh as he waited. Patience is the key to dealing with unwanted obstructions.[/font]

Atticus didn't feel alive. He knew that he was, though, because he was breathing and living things breathed, but he didn't feel it. His eyes felt closed when they were open and his brain felt asleep when he was awake. Atticus felt very... foggy. He didn't have the word that explained it.

Mornings, Atticus was finding, tended to be like this. Maybe he just wasn't fully used to his current situation yet, or maybe he just wasn't getting much sleep. It could have been either one, really. Or both. Simple things slipped past him and even simpler things angered him, like how he was supposed to pick out his own clothes or how he had to live around so many people and was expected to not scream at any one of them.

People, he thought. Are what you call humans. Beings aren't humans. Beings were monsters and killers and could maybe look like humans, but Atticus didn't consider them to be people. They weren't, after all. They were so much worse.

He was captive-born and captive-raised, meaning he had been around Beings his entire life. He had seen them through fences and he had seen them up close, and never once had they given him a reason to like them. They had stuck him in a cage since the day he was born, and now they had traded that cage for a slightly bigger one. The only real difference was that instead of being part of an exhibit to look at, Atticus had become someones pet. Someones property.

Atticus wasn't sure how he felt about it. It was freedom in a way, because he could walk where he wanted and eat when he wanted, and he was pretty sure that he could walk and eat at the same time if he wanted to (though he hadn't gotten around to trying that yet), but he still felt... trapped. Atticus didn't have the word that explained that one, either.

He wished that he had a larger vocabulary.

White shirt or brown shirt? Atticus thought, staring at himself in the mirror while holding the two shirts close to him. He glanced over at the rest of his clothes, neatly organized in a mess spewed across the floor. Blue shirt, maybe. Choosing clothes still seemed like an impossible task to him. How everyone else seemed to do it with so much ease seemed even more impossible. How did they know what colours went with what? How did they not end up wearing their pants backward or their shirts inside out? Atticus scowled. His pajamas looked like they matched fairly well, didn't they? It wouldn't be too bad if he just kept wearing them.

He left the two shirts on the floor behind him and walked out into the hall. The house was big, to say the least. Big enough that Atticus rarely found himself running into anyone. Still, he was finally beginning to remember which hallways led where and which doors led to what rooms. Fuko, his 'owner's room, was... Atticus paused. He didn't fully remember where that one was yet. He began walking in the general direction of it anyway, and then after a few moments of walking his feet seemed to remember where to go.

"FUKO! HEY, GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS!" Atticus shouted, knocking heavily on her bedroom door. Fuko Atarashi wasn't the nicest of Beings, and Atticus wasn't the politest of humans. Suffice to say, they did not get along too well. "IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GET UP! STOP BEING LAZY." The last part wasn't too necessary, Atticus thought, but it felt good to say it to her nonetheless.

Dɪᴀʟᴏɢᴜᴇ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✦ Metallic Mint--#37FDFC || Tʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✧ Teal--#008080[/center]



Thanyos was just about to explain his brilliant master plan when his human, one Rosalinda, appeared out of what seemed like nowhere to the unobservant being. To add insult to injury, she just ignored him and focused on Doll, Kiki's human. I'm right here you know, I can see you. Thanyos thought, making a face. He didn't interrupt, partially because he hoped that Rosa would give Doll some reason not to join in on the prank. Then again, it did require three people…

"I want a cookie too!" Thanyos half shouted as Rosa gave a medium-sized cookie to her fellow human. His face fell as the redhead informed him that he'd have to share with Kiki. Even though he liked his brother (after all, nobody else would join in his pranks and two minds were way better than one when it came to causing chaos), he didn't like sharing his sweets with anyone. "But you gave Doll a full one," Thanyos complained, cheeks puffing out as he complained. The being looked at the half cookie in his hand. It wasn't even his favorite kind. It was just a stupid chocolate chip. His favorite was, to nobody's surprise, sugar.

Of course Thanyos was quickly lifted from his bad mood when Kiki handed his half to Thanyos. The green-haired being used Thanyos' nickname and was, indeed, one of the few allowed to call him Thany. When anyone else, including his other siblings, called him that they would soon find themselves on the receiving end of one of his more mean pranks.

"Thanks, Kiki. I'll pay you back, promise." In this case the method of payment would be getting a larger share than usual out of the stolen desserts, but Thanyos didn't bother making that distinction in front of the girls. He wasn't worried about what Doll would say; she was far too mild mannered to do anything to stop them and she probably wouldn't tell anyone either. It was Rosa he was concerned about. She was a firecracker to say the least. Thanyos liked her, though, if only because it was fun to run rings around her and drag her into his more insane games.

In this case it was time to run rings around her while dragging her into one of his games, but that was just how Thanyos liked things. And if she couldn't keep up… Well, that was her own fault. It didn't matter to him if she thought it was boring or stupid or whatever, she didn't have a choice. That was the best part about having a human, Thanyos had decided. They couldn't really do anything against you. Unless you're Fuko's human… Now that one was a loud-mouth and a bit crazy, if you asked Thanyos, but the being thought Atticus was entertaining at least.

"What makes you think we're up to something?" Thanyos asked, casually leaning against the wall. He tried adopting an equally calm smile but his eyes were still bright and it was clear that he had plans. "Maybe we just are going to play a game together. Actually," Thanyos straightened up, pretending that this hadn't been in his mind the whole time, "we could use another player. You're game, right? I promise it won't be like last time." The time before, in this case, had involved an interesting twist on the human game Twister with elements of Candy Land. If you asked anyone, they would have no idea how he had come up with it.

"Now that I think about it, four would be the perfect number." Thanyos practically beamed at Rosa. He ate a whole half of the cookie in one bite and chewed it thoughtfully, swallowing before he spoke again. "Yep, my mind's made up." Thanyos grabbed Rosa's hand and grinned. "You're gonna play with us!" With that, Thanyos took off down the stairs, starting to drag Rosa behind him. "Follow me!"

Slang, a pretty but expressionless or unintelligent woman. I.e. "She's nothing more than a doll."



[ Dirty Paws | Of Monsters and Men ]



Dɪᴀʟᴏɢᴜᴇ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✦ #66CDAA || Tʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✧ #008B8B



Doll had been contemplating this prank since Thanyos spoke, wondering if this wasn't a prank so much as a crime. They were stealing a cake and even if it was their family's property Doll still felt wrong. If things went south they could always blame her and no doubt the mother would believe them as what mother wanted to think that her two sons were devils? If it came to that though Doll believed Dr. Atarashi would come to her defense, after all he knew her and he wouldn't let her get kicked off the property... Right? There was a limit to how far someone's kindness could extend and Doll didn't want to test it.

Rosa, Thanyos's human showed up then. She seemed annoyed about something although Doll couldn't quite put her finger on it. "I'm supposed to sleep in the office until Dr. Atarashi gives me the okay," Doll twisted the hem of her skirt in her hands seemingly a bit nervous. Talking to others was not her forte and she didn't want to offend Rosa in anyway. "B-but thank you!" The girl blurted, quick to remember her please's and thank you's. She looked at the sweet offered and while tempting, Doll figured that if she ate it she would have no room for the cake they were plotting to steal.

The girl was about to refuse but Rosa didn't seem to take no for an answer, she pushed the cookie into Doll's hand, making the younger girl take it. "Thank you," Doll mumbled and looked down at the baked good. "You can have it, I don't really want to spoil my appetite," Doll held out the cookie to Kiku, hoping the offering would make him happy. "N-not to say that they're bad or anything, I just don't want to e-eat anything before lunch!" There was only so much food her tiny stomach could handle and after the big breakfast Grell had prepared Doll this morning she was still full.

"We weren't playing anything evil," Doll shook her head, hoping this wasn't a lie. Doll didn't think stealing tonight's dessert was really that horrifying of an act, after all she had been with a master whose idea of pranks involved bloodied limbs and sending people to the hospital. She had many scars from this Being, he was the one who had made Doll be deemed unstable. The thought of him made her legs shake and Doll covered it up by leaning against the wall and outwardly sighing. The blonde eyed Thanyos up and down before turning to look at Kiku, before he said three was the perfect amount, now four? Maybe he remembered how big dessert was and realized they didn't have enough people to consume it all? Regardless the reason Doll pushed off the wall, "Are you coming Master?" Doll asked before turning to Thanyos who had instructed them to follow him. Like lambs lining up for the slaughter...

"Thanks, Kiki. I'll pay you back, promise." Kiku's mood lifted considerably and he reached out to give his favorite brother a quick hug. "Thany, you're the best!" He chirped cheerfully, throwing his annoyance to the wind. He wasn't the type to linger on those negative emotions, feeling that those just drag you down. And he wasn't going to let anything ruin his good mood permanently.

"You can have it, I don't really want to spoil my appetite. N-not to say that they're bad or anything, I just don't want to e-eat anything before lunch!" He tilted his head quizzically as Doll offered him her share of the cookie, stammering slightly. Was she afraid that he would hurt her? His father didn't tell him much about the girl's past, but from the way she acts seems to reveal a lot about how she has been treated. It was fascinating, how the way humans act are affected by their past experiences. "You can have it Dolly," He told her, before hesitating for a few seconds before continuing. "Unless you really mean it... I haven't had breakfast yet." To say the truth, he wasn't too hungry most of the time, and human meat tasted terrible and sour. It was considered a luxury and he often felt compelled to try it out of the fact that it was actually bought for them, but he never really enjoyed it. The substitute tasted much better in comparison.

He took the cookie from her in the end, after some consideration. Doll didn't seem like the type to lie about matters like that but again, he might be wrong. In any case, he was craving for something sweet and lunch wouldn't be coming anytime soon. "Thanks Dolly, don't tell Thany though, I still want the reward." The tips of his mouth raised in a childish smile as he leaned closer to whisper in her ear discreetly, pulling away quickly afterward.

"Actually, we could use another player. You're game, right? I promise it won't be like last time." Shock passed by like a ripple in the golden pools of his eyes, taking a while for them to turn into their normal calm state. Thanyos had never tried to invite anyone new into their pranks. Yet, it was rare that they decided to let anyone into their pranks in the first place. Before the humans came, it was just the two of them planking on unsuspecting family members and staff before running away and feeling the thrill of adrenaline in their veins. Things were different when the humans came into their lives now, whether it was for better or for worse.

"Yep, my mind's made up." And... That seals the deal. Even he would have a hard time talking Thanyos out of something he felt certain on, not to mention he knows how much he hates it when other people do the same to him. Still, he wasn't going to have to take care of them if they don't keep up with the speed and intensity of their pranks. No, looking at them struggle to catch up would be part of the fun. A gleam was in his golden eyes now, temporarily causing him to have the same air as his sister.

"Are you coming Master?" Doll's words snapped him out of his thoughts as he looked up abruptly only to see Thanyos take off with his human in tow. "Can you catch up?" He asked her quickly. There was hardly any time left before Thanyos was going to vanish from his sight. His brother acted fast and efficiently, and he was going to use everything he could to keep up. This was a prank he wasn't going to miss for the world. "Sorry, but let's go!" Kiku ran after Thanyos at top speed, holding Doll's wrist tightly. He was half-leading, half-dragging the girl, but now all his sights were set on following Thanyos to the kitchen.

Fuko woke up with a start, she was screaming and breathing heavily. She knew it wasn't even daybreak. Then at the foot of her bed she saw Dr. Atarashi, her father.
"Fuu-chan my darling. You were having another bad dream weren't you? I brought you your medications."

"I don't w-want the medicine." She muttered softly. Her breath was coming in ragged breaths. It was getting harder to wake up every morning, her heart was becoming weaker. Although she refused to let this slow her down. No one but her father would see her show any sign of any amount of weakness. Ever.

"Look, my princess. If you don't take it. . ."

Fuko's upper lip curled, then with a yell she knocked the medicine out of the man's hands. "I said I didn't want it! Leave me, at once!" Fuko whispered between clenched teeth. Her father sighed and ruffled her hair, then he took his leave, leaving behind the medications on her bedside table. Fuko watched him leave, swinging her feet over the side of the bed with a heavy sigh she got up and got dressed.

She had been brushing her hair tenderly when she heard a ruckus outside her door. Banging and shouting.

"FUKO! HEY, GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS! IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GET UP! STOP BEING LAZY." Fuko tsked and bit her lower lip angrily. His outburst had startled her, causing her to yank down on her hair. Strapping on her eye-patch she made her way over to the door, composing herself before opening the door.

"You are a fool. A loud obnoxious fool." Fuko snarled, grabbing Atticus by the lapels and yanking him inside with shocking strength for something her size. She held him against the wall, her lip curling like that of a wild beast.
"You have angered me for the last time Atticus, for this you will pay. Do not forget your place boy!" Fuko reeled back slapping the boy once across the face. "You caused me to yank on my hair. Your blatant ignorance is almost amusing. I could destroy you with one thought. Never forget how lucky you are I am merciful." Fuko let him go, brushing her hands on her skirt. She then put a part of her hair up in the side ponytail she always wore. Looking back to the orange haired boy she smiled sweetly. Almost like she was another person.

"Atty, I'm sorry. I just, I'm not a morning person. Forgive my meanness won't you?" Fuko's voice was soft and innocent as she approached. She put a finger on the boys chest, walking her fingers up his chest and leaning her head on his shoulder seductively gazing up at him.
"You know I just get. . . Angry. Forgive me." Then quieter. "Please Atticus." Fuko had made sure to close the door he had entered through, leaving her and the boy alone inside. A part of Fuko was attracted to this boy, to the fire within him.

"Really, I don't want it." Doll was glad when he accepted the cookie, his mood seeming to perk up instantly. "I promise, I won't tell anyone," Doll said, glad that they were getting along. Kiku smiled then and she wasn't sure if he was grateful or scheming but nevertheless Doll matched his smile with one of her own. His expression quickly turned and for a second Doll wondered what was going through his mind, he didn't seem to like the possibility that Rosa would be joining in the prank although to Doll it only seemed fair since she was tagging along.

"Yeah," she nodded her head in response to his question. Doll could run just fine, she believed herself to be fast although compared to Beings Doll wasn't sure. Her speed was swift for a human, but if Kiku had something like super speed she would never be able to keep up. The fact that they were so similar in appearance and yet were enormously different never ceased to amuse and annoy her. Just when Doll believed herself to be good at something a Being would step forward and be ten times better than her at it. This irked the human to no end as it made her feel... Worthless. One of her greatest fears was being seen as having no value, holding no weight in this world. That's why Doll worked extra hard to prove her worth.

Kiku grabbed Doll's wrist then and began running. Surprisingly she could keep up and although Doll stumbled on the carpet a few times she managed to keep pace with Kiku, if not a bit behind him. It looked as though they were going to the kitchen and Doll's notions were confirmed when they stopped in front of the door. Grell was out, she had seen him leave this morning to take care of a few things. Probably shopping for dinner no doubt. Would tonight's dessert even be ready now? Or would they stake out until Grell was finished and steal whatever it was then?

"Hey."

Sara was grateful that she hadn't woken her Master. She'd had bad experiences with little mistakes like that, and it wasn't the nicest thought she could've had at that moment in time. Sara was grateful that Zero was such a calm person. It helped her feel more at ease, and she never seemed to feel uncomfortable in the shared silence that often surrounded the pair.

There were voices sounding down the hall, and Sara concluded that most of the others were awake. At the moment Thanyos and Rosa's voices were the most prominent, and if she listened closer she could hear Kiku. Judging from Kiku's words she assumed Doll was also with them. I wonder what they're all up to... Probably another prank.

Sara began to wonder why no one ever seemed to punish the two boys for starting so much trouble. There had been a prank almost every day since she'd started living with the Atarashi family, yet neither of the parents seemed to pay any heed to the wild antics of their children. Then again, Beings weren't Humans, so perhaps they just didn't mind it all.

"Sara walk with me."

Sara snapped from her thoughts and rushed to follow Zero, who was walking off down the corridor. He had his cell phone out and seemed to be calling someone. Her suspicions were soon confirmed.

"Grell, yeah it's me, what are you preparing for tonight's dessert?"

A small hint of surprise crossed Sara's face as she unintentionally eaves dropped on the conversation her Master was having. Zero simply didn't seemed to be the type of person who would enjoy sweets, so it was slightly confusing as to why he'd be calling Grell to ask about tonight's dessert.

"Red velvet, appetizing, mmm, go ahead and continue that as planned but there's also something I'd like you to do for me. How familiar are you with the Coconut Haupia? I hear it's a Hawaiian favorite."

Haupia? Sara recognized the term as a Hawaiian food, she'd read about it in a book once. It was apparently a coconut dessert made out of coconut milk and sugar. She wondered why Zero would be asking about it. Was it secretly delicious? She'd never been able to try it before and in this moment she'd become curious. Guess all that's left to do is wait...

Thanyos was certainly not your typical being, nor did he think the way the rest of his siblings. He led them to the kitchen, barely surprising a shout or two of excitement, while his mind was reeling with possibilities. He honestly had no intention of letting Rosa into their prank because, well, she would probably mess it up or tell someone and that would ruin all the fun. But he still wanted to include her somehow, distract her at the very least, and that was a hard enough task in of itself. After all, the most important part of being a good prankster was being willing to wait and be patient… Unfortunately for Thanyos, and luckily for the rest of the household, he was not very good at the patient bit.

Maybe get her to "help" by getting supplies? No, then I'd have to explain why I needed it all... As he was running, Thanyos frowned. It was a rare sight on his face and nobody else saw it because it was gone in an instant, replaced by his usual carefree grin. I'll come up with something, the being thought to himself. I always do. After only a few minutes of running, thanks to the speed that Thanyos put into his mad dash for the kitchen, the small group arrived outside the side door.

There were two ways into the kitchen; one of them was mainly used by the servants and the humans. It was out of the way and was a convenient swinging door, so anyone carrying trays or plates didn't have to use their hands to push it open. The other door was much nicer and was placed so the beings could go in and out without having to cross through all the equipment that was in the kitchen. It was what Thanyos usually used when he wanted a quick snack (read: lots of candy to keep him extra hyper while planning particularly poignant pranks).

"Now that we have arrived at our target destination we can begin. But first, there is something extremely important I must address." Thanyos looked at his brother and then at the two humans. None of them were out of breath, which some part of his mind admired. Not everyone could keep up with him after all. But the majority of his mind was too busy plotting. Then again, it always was so that wasn't anything new. "The kitchen is an impenetrable fortress that has claimed many lives in attempts to enter its walls, and because of that we must plan accordingly. Thanyos smirked and dashed away, heading for what passed as his room. "To the HQ!" He shouted rather unnecessarily.

He did this every time he had a tricky prank, and Kiki had come to almost expect it from him. This dessert heist was going to be one of the biggest pranks that Thanyos had ever pulled in his glorious career, and he was not about to screw it up.

Sara silently listened to Zero and Grell's conversation as she followed her Master downstairs. After a while, she realized they were talking about sabotaging Thanyos' next prank, which Zero somehow knew about. Sara didn't really know how frustrating the pranks could be, since she'd never been the victim of any of them. Perhaps the others had a different opinion.

The two stopped when they reached Dr. Atarashi's office. Sara had never seen the inside, as the room was strictly off-limits to the Humans and most of the staff. She had observed Zero entering the room several times before though, so she assumed he was allowed in. He didn't seem to be the type of person to blatantly disregard the house rules.

"Sara, you're free to join me on this or not, it's your call."

Sara wasn't quite sure whether they would get in trouble or not if they planted laxatives in the cakes, but she didn't really have anything else to do, so she followed Zero into the room. It was dark, but large and very neat. The multitude of books made Sara wish the area wasn't restricted to her, she could spend a lifetime in here and not ever get bored.

Turning back to Zero, Sara noticed him saying something but didn't catch what it was. She heard a click, and then Zero pulled a laptop out of one of the desk drawers, so she assumed the phrase must have been a password or something similar. Soon after, images of every room in the manor were visible on the hologram screen, Zero talking about his plans the whole time.

It was fascinating to see all the different places in the house. Some of the rooms Sara didn't recognize, which meant she hadn't seen nearly as much of the manor as she'd thought. It was definitely a big place. None of the bedrooms were shown, which made sense, even though it meant they would have to keep a closer eye on the halls for sight of the group.

"Um...why are we going to put laxatives in the desserts? Wouldn't that be just as bad as one of Thanyos' pranks?"

Sara hoped she wasn't asking stupid questions. The answer seemed obvious, considering how many times people around the house had been stolen from or doused with buckets of water, but she still felt it was a bit harsh to make them suffer with lazatives as a punishment. Perhaps they wouldn't be so rowdy if their parents kept a closer eye on them...

Atticus didn't know what kind of reaction he was expecting from Fuko when he yelled at her through the door. Her getting angry at him? He could at least predict that much.

"You are a fool. A loud obnoxious fool." Fuko snarled at him. Atticus grinned, pleased by her anger, but it quickly turned into a confused frown when she grabbed him and dragged her into her room. Fuko had a lot of odd things about her, Atticus noticed. But the strength she had despite her small size was probably one of the oddest. Plus there was the fact that someone as tiny as her was managing to hold him up against a wall with complete ease. That could have been considered odd, too.

Then, Fuko did something that Atticus hadn't been able to predict. He had thought that maybe she would just yell at him for a few moments, maybe give him a very rudely worded lecture of respect, but Fuko had decided to do something else. Something that made Atticus remember his life spent at the zoo. She hit him. He had flinched back as she had raised her hand, and still it had struck him.

Atticus hated the feeling of being hit.

He didn't listen to what she had said after that. It had something to do with ignorance, something about destroying him with her brain maybe, and her words could have included her being merciful though Atticus wasn't too sure if his ears had heard that part properly. He was too busy focusing on the stinging on his cheek to give enough attention to the sound of her voice. For a few seconds, Atticus was frozen.

Fuko turned toward him again, this time with a smile on her face, and she gave Atticus what he assumed was intended to be an apology. He narrowed his eyes at her, debating whether or not if he should walk out of the room and leave her being unforgiven. He doubted that she would care, though. Fuko didn't seem like the type of person who cared about things a whole lot.

She got closer to him, which made him feel much less than comfortable. What was she trying to do, anyway? One minute she was furious, then the next she was... something. Completely different. Atticus felt tempted to push her away. "You're just a monster, Fuko." He snapped, doing exactly that. As soon as she was away from him though, Atticus realized with a sense of fear that she was probably going to hit him again. But even if she does, Atticus thought, trying to reason. What's the worse that would happen? You're not gonna die here. She can't be allowed to kill you. Though Atticus wondered if Fuko would still try.

He moved to a different spot in the bedroom that was reasonably much closer to the door. He sat down on the floor with his arms wrapped around his legs, unsure of what else to do. Could he leave? He thought of it, and then he also thought of Fuko yelling at him for doing something without her telling him to. Atticus sighed and rested his head on his knees. He felt like he was on leash that was too short for him, and that if he tried to run away he'd be throwing himself right into an electric fence.

One place of captivity to another...
