“HELP!! SOMEBODY HELP!! HE TOOK MY PURSE!!”
A rugged-mugged man with a white baseball cap on his head ran down the sidewalk, looking back as he was chased down by another man with a bit more hair on his face. The two raced down the sidewalk, with people moving off to the sides as the pursuit continued. Ducking, bobbing, and weaving all the way through the crowd, the thief cradled a green purse in his hands, fiddling around with the top to try and check what was inside.
It wasn’t the smoothest heist he’d ever pulled. To be perfectly honest, it was lousy. He was just waiting for some poor sap to come out and listen to his typical story, but most of the people coming out of the bank just passed on by, thinking he was asking for money. They weren’t wrong, of course; his whole trick was that he’d get a hand on whatever valuable wallet or purse he could, and then with the help of a little smoke and mirrors, he’d make his daring escape.
Only this time, he forgot the smoke and mirrors.
Now he was getting chased down by the girl’s boyfriend - at least, that’s probably who it was - all in an effort to get her purse back. If there was one thing he enjoyed about stealing these kinds of items from people though, it was what you could learn about them from opening them up. And there was only one real thought that he said out loud as he clicked open the top of the purse.
“Man, this girl sure likes green.”
Everything inside was green - the wallet, the polish, the interior lining of the purse, the lipstick case, even the tissues inside the purse were a light green, though that might just be from all the green that surrounded them. But he knew what he was going for, and with the lead he had on that poor sucker, there was no way that he’d get-
“Stop right there, criminal!”
The burglar, thinking he was in the clear, didn’t bother looking to see the door to a nearby phone booth open wide, a large foot connecting a powerful kick to his jaw as he collapsed onto the ground in a heap. Out of the phone booth stepped forth two children stepping out to block his path. Each of them were dressed as a ninja - one in red, and the other in blue. They each looked over the burglar as he struggled to right himself up before turning to each other, nodding, and then striking a pose.
The rest of the people on the sidewalk backed away to give the three some space as the burglar stood up once again. He held a hand against his jaw, a sizable bruise remaining where he was kicked. “The hell…” He looked up at the two diminutive ninjas posing before him and furrowed his brow. “Shouldn’t you two be in nursery school?”
“Shouldn’t you be in jail?” the Blue Ninja retorted.
The burglar scoffed at her remark, spitting out a little blood. “Children shouldn’t mess with adult affairs,” he said. “Why don’t you two run along back home to your mommies?”
“Why don’t you go home before you end up getting hurt?” the Red Ninja threw back.
“Tch, kid, you’ve got a smart mouth,” the burglar responded back, cracking his knuckles. “Let me do you a favor and shut it!”
The burglar rushed forward, a raised fist in the air ready to sock a ninja in the face. That’s when the two ninjas sprang into action.
The burglar threw a right cross at the Red Ninja, only to have him duck down and let the Blue Ninja catch the burglar’s fist in her hands. Then she delivered a powerful high roundhouse kick to the burglar’s face, causing him to lose his balance as he stumbled over. The Red Ninja managed to get right next to his legs and crouched below him, causing the burglar to trip and fall over onto the ground.
Disoriented, the burglar attempted to stand up again, looking over at the two ninjas in front of him. He glowered angrily and charged at them both, his hands raised high in the air! He lunged forward and-
A solid double-punch - one from each ninja - landed squarely in the burglar’s chest and his crotch. He squealed with pain as he collapsed onto the ground, with the Red Ninja chuckling to himself.
“And that’s why crime doesn’t pay,” he declared, pointing down at the burglar.
Then the Red Ninja reached down and picked the burglar back up, setting him up for the Blue Ninja to deliver a powerful kick against the burglar’s chest, sending him flying back and into a nearby police car. With no wind in his chest and a brutal beating delivered, the burglar fainted, a total knockout.
“All in a day’s work,” they said together in a very cliched way as they high-fived each other, then they stand in awesome poses for dramatic effect.
The scraggly-haired pursuer stepped out of the dispersing crowd, looking over towards the battered and beaten criminal poking out of the police car’s window where he had been kicked through. He looked over to the odd pair before him, standing there holding out the green purse to him.
“Thanks,” he said, reaching for the purse. “That’s much appreciated…”
“No need to thank you.We are just doing our job,” the Red Ninja said.
The man turned around to see a woman practically bathed in green running up behind him, a flock of other men at her heels as they approached. She stopped just short of him, asking, “What happened? Did you get my purse back?”
“Yeah,” Freeman replied. “These kids actually helped stop the robber.”
“Aw man, beaten by a pair of kids…”
“Are they wearing ninja costumes?”
“Seems a little early for Halloween.”
The girl turned back towards the group of men following in her wake, Freeman looking at them with a raised eyebrow just behind her. “It’s okay, guys, thanks for your help anyway!” she said to them with a nod as they grumbled and turned away. She then looked back towards the two ninja kids before the couple.
“Thanks for your help! This means a lot to me,” she said as she knelt down to their eye level. “What are your names?”
“My name is April the Blue Ninja,” replied the blue one, “and this is my baby brother, Red the Red ninja.” She even held Red up in her arms like an infant.
“So what are your names?” Red said pointing at the green-haired lady.
“I’m Aina,” the green-haired girl replied, “and this is my boyfriend, Freeman.”
Freeman waved. “It’s nice to meet you two,” he said. “Thanks again for helping out with that. I don’t know what we would’ve done without your help.”
“We’d probably just use your money,” Aina said cheerfully as she stood up.
Freeman twitched. “So like I said, don’t know what we would’ve done.”
“Aw, it was nothing,” the ninjas said proudly.
The group looked over at Aina as she held a hand up to her stomach. “Awwww, all that running and chasing after people has made me hungry,” she declared.
“You weren’t running,” Freeman pointed out.
“I was for a little bit!” Aina pouted. “Can we go grab a burger?”
“Well sure,” Freeman replied.
“Sure!” April replied in hunger.
“I am up for whatever,” Red said.
Freeman looked at the two ninjas who seemed so eager to join them. “Uhh, you guys have your folks nearby, right?” he asked, looking around the area.
“Uh-huh! We asked our guardian, Sensei Sponeg if we could leave the house and he said ‘Sure,’” Red said to Freeman.
“You have a sensei?” Aina looked around to, checking the area with Freeman. “Is he nearby?”
“Yeah, but he hates company,” April responded unhappily. “Because of something that happened in the past, but that’s another story for another time.”
“Oh...that’s a shame.” Aina looked up at Freeman, making a slight pouty face.
“...no. No no, we’re not just scooping up children in the middle of the sidewalk,” Freeman quickly said as he caught sight of Aina’s face.
“We’re not scooping up children! We’re taking them to enjoy a delicious nutritious meal!”
“Burgers aren’t that healthy, and we don’t even know where their...guardian is!”
“He’s a sensei, and I’m sure they know where to find him. Right kids?”
“Uh, huh,” they said together.
“See? Totally fine!”
“That’s not an answer we should take.”
“Oh come on, they’re with us! What’s the worst that could happen?”
“We lose the children and die a slow painful ninja-related death?”
“See? Nothing to worry about! Now let’s go get us those burgers!!”
And with that, Aina snagged Freeman’s hand and April’s hand and prepared to rush off once more into the distance as young Red spryly climbed up onto her shoulders and sat up high.
“Weeeeee!!” he said with excitement.
“Where should we go though?” Freeman asked.
This halted Aina in her tracks as she stopped to think for a moment about where they should go.
“Hmmm...we could go to that one burger stand...or that restaurant with the fancy burgers...or maybe that one place…” Aina wondered aloud with thoughts of all the different burger places they could go to.
“Why don’t we go to your house and create some Ninja Burgers?” April suggested to Aina. “That way you don’t have to spend so much on buying foods for everyone.”
“Ninja burgers? What are those?” Freeman asked.
“Why, it is indescribably amazing. A burger that you make ANYWAY YOU WANT! It’s so much fun making them. April and I do it all the time at home,” Red declared.
“Any way you want it?” Freeman wondered.
“That’s the way I need it!” Aina cheered with a smile of delight. “Let’s do that!”
And so the group turned about face and headed off towards the couple’s home, with no more debate on the matter save for the wondering look of Freeman as he imagined what could happen and the ecstatic look of Aina as she imagined what would happen...
Once they arrive at the couple’s home, Aina headed into the kitchen and retrieved a variety of cooking utensils in order to prepare the burger while April and Red went over the recipe.
“All right, to make a Ninja Burger, we are going to need these items,” April began.
“Any type of bread, 2 types of meat, and your favorite fruit or vegetable,” Red finished. “Now let’s get started.”
“Is that it?” Freeman asked. “Sounds easy enough to make.”
“Well, yeah. It is supposed to be easy to make,” April replies.
“Yeah, it’s easy because we make this all the time at home,” Red added.
“Hmmmm, what to put on the burger…” Aina hummed to herself. “What do you guys think of ham and beef for the meats?”
“Sure. I don’t see why not,” Red stated.
“Ooh, and then we could throw on some cherries!” Aina giggled.
“Cherries on a burger? Now I’ve seen everything,” Freeman remarked as he retrieved the bread. “Wheat as always?”
“You know it!” Aina replied.
“Now the optional choice of a dessert or drink that you can put on top of the burger,” April said.
“Wait, we put a drink on top of the burger?”
“Freeman! Make the milkshake!”
Freeman went over to the refrigerator and pulled out some milk, some chocolate ice cream, and a bottle of chocolate syrup before heading over to the blender. For the next few minutes, Aina cooked up the meat for the burgers while Freeman worked on preparing the chocolate milkshake, mixing the ingredients together with the press of a button. Meanwhile, Red and April stayed put and talking to one another about their previous adventures.
“For the final step, place all the ingredients in-between the two burger buns, but save the milkshake for last!” Red and April exclaimed as the two cooks were nearly finished.
Aina started layering out the beef on the bottom bun as Freeman turned off the blender. A layer of mashed cherries came on top of it, spread out like a jam, before the ham was put on top alongside a delicate pouring of chocolate milkshake and the top bun. The two looked down at their creation, a bit of milkshake dripping down the sides.
Aina pondered as to what to say. “It looks so...so…”
“Unique! I was going to say unique!”
“If by unique, you mean strange.”
“Oh come on, it’ll be great! After all, we made it together~”
“Alright, go for it.”
“Oh, gee, yeah, hehe, would you look at that…”
“IT LOOKS AS AWESOME AS A BEAR JUMPING OVER A SHARK TANK WHILE RIDING A MINI-BIKE!!” Red screamed.
Aina and Freeman looked over at Red dubiously.
April screamed with stars in her eyes, “IT’S SO CREATIVELY CONSTRUCTED AND BUILT SO….AMAZINGLY!!”
The couple now looked back over at April with the same look they gave Red before turning to each other.
“Well, it’s not getting any better!” Aina smiled, reaching down to the burger and grasping its fluffy buns with all its meat in the middle. “Down the hatch!”
And just like that, Aina opened her mouth wide and took a large bite out of the burger, a squirt of milkshake and cherries bursting out from behind it and trickling down her arm.
The Ninjas gasped with surprise. “So how is it?”
For a moment, Aina simply stood there, chewing away at the bite of burger in her mouth. It seemed to go back and forth between her cheeks before she finally ended up swallowing the morsel. And then...silence…
Aina then tore into the rest of the burger with alarming speed, devouring it whole much to the others’ surprise. Freeman looked over at Aina and then back down to the other ingredients before shrugging his shoulders and building another Ninja Burger and taking a bite himself.
“...hm. Not bad,” he nodded. He then looked over at Red and April and said, “You two should try some!”
Red was the first to take a bite, “....that’s really good...and tasty.”
April examined the creation for a few seconds before taking her first bite. “AMAZING! It tastes better than it looks!”
“I know right?” Aina agreed. “I’mma make another one!”
After a few more minutes of making burgers and eating them, the group all sat together on the couch in the living room, their stomachs rounded and filled with Ninja Burger goodness. April and Red began patting and rubbing each other bellies in satisfaction. “Those burgers were soooo good.”
“Mmmm, I couldn’t agree more,” Aina said rubbing her belly up against Freeman. “Don’t you agree, Freeeeeeeman?”
“I only had the one,” Freeman replied. “Unlike some of us, I don’t think I’d be able to stomach three of those.”
“Uh, three and a half? I ate the rest of that burger you weren’t going to eat,” Aina corrected him.
Red and April laughed to themselves about this. Freeman chuckled a bit too before turning his attention back to the children.
“So you two are ninjas, huh?” he asked curiously. “How long have you been like that?”
“Yep. We’ve been ninjas for long as we can remember,” they replied.
“Sounds exciting!” Aina remarked. “What does your sensei have you guys do for training?”
“He has us run for 3 miles and back, do 150 push-ups, 250 pull-ups, and an hour of jump squats, but it’s all for karate tournaments and championships that we do every year,” said April.
“Sounds like a lot of hard work,” Freeman pointed out. “So you guys participate in a lot of tournaments then?”
“Oh, yeah. INTERNATIONAL KARATE TOURNAMENTS!!!” an excited Red stated. “It’s just so much fun going around the world for karate tournaments.”
“Oooh, you guys travel a lot then!” Aina said.
“Yeah, but it does get tiring, though,” April added.
“Well, if your moves on that robber were anything to look at, you guys must do really well,” Freeman nodded.
“I am April and he’s Red and we are the RED AND BLUE NINJAS!!” April declared.
“YEAH!!” Red echoed in declaration.
A pause followed the child duo’s declaration. Freeman nodded again. “And with confidence like that, I bet you take home first prize every time!”
“YEAH!!” Red repeated in declaration, “But every year the Vladersonington twins, Jim and Tim, get so close to beating us. THEY GET ONE OR TWO POINTS FROM OUR SCORE AND THEY MAKE ME SO ANGRY EVERY TIME I TALK TO THEM!!” Red was enraged.
“Woah! Calm down, Red,” April responded quickly before things got out of hand by giving Red his stuffed bunny.
“Sounds like you’ve got a set of rivals,” Freeman said.
“YEAH!!” Red repeated in declaration for the third time, “They do twice as much work as we do, but they still lose to us. Probably because they tire out from working so hard.”
“Still though, rivals suck!” Aina said. “I should know, having had a few myself.”
“I’m pretty sure those aren’t the same as what these two have as rivals,” Freeman pointed out.
That’s when Aina stood up from the couch. “It doesn’t matter what the contest is - a fight to the finish on the mat, or a competition for a person’s heart - a rival is a rival no matter what!” she declared loud and proud.
“And that’s the truth!” Red added.
“Woo-Hoo!!” cheered April.
The two then leapt off the couch and into the air, doing several front flips before landing on the ground by the tips of their toes. Before another moment had passed, they raced to opposite ends of the room and clambered up the walls and onto the ceiling, doing a set of backflips before Red lands on the ground and helps April leap over to the other wall. He then does several back handsprings across the floor, up the wall, and across the ceiling, where he meets April in the middle as they fight each other while falling to the floor, landing on their feet before mirroring each other’s poses.
The group looked over towards Aina, whose stomach appeared to be the cause of the sudden groan in the room. She moved one of her hands to her gut as it gurgled again.
“Hehehe, guess that Ninja Burger’s doing a number on my stomach,” she chuckled.
“Yep,” commented Red
“We all knew that it was going to happen eventually,” agreed April.
“Wait, you knew that was going to happen?” Freeman asked skeptically.
“Because I sometimes get the same feeling in my stomach when I eat too much,” April said sheepishly.
“Well, cherries do give me gas,” Aina said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if some of that other stuff gave me gas too!”
Red looked at her belly and listened to the rumbling and gurgling from within, as though a very angry animal were just pawing away inside, waiting to come out. “Yeah, you’re probably right.”
Aina chuckled before leaning forward a little to stick out her broad behind.
A gaseous rupture poked out of Aina’s butt and flowed through with a bubbly burst, sending out a cloud of funky fumes consisting of delectable cherries with spoiled cream poured over them before being served with a side of rotting beef. Aina sighed as the echo off the fifteen-second fart faded out, breathing in her newborn scent.
“Ahhhh, that’s nice,” she laughed.
Red inhales. “It smells WONDERFUL like a pony pooping out rainbows.”
“Phew, well it smells like a pony pooped out something,” Freeman chuckled, waving a hand in front of his face.
“Oooh, I wanna fart, too!” April giggled as she held her nose.
“Wait, no-” Red started, but it was too late.
April lifted a leg up and pointed small butt towards Aina’s face.
A monstrously, wet gaseous emission was let loose into the world. It blew out from April’s bum and it combined with Aina’s previously bubbly burst, intensifying the stench in the air. April sighed as her ten-second fart ended, breathing in her own personal touch of rotten meat and fruit to the smell wafting in the air.
“Ahhhh, that felt gooooood,” chuckled April.
Aina caught a big whiff of the fart as it pelted her for a good bit of the duration. Then she grinned widely; it was a pretty good fart to be sure, something she wasn’t expecting from the small girl, but…
“Hehehe, that sounded pretty good! Smell’s not too bad either,” she remarked. Then she leaned forward to look at April on eye level. “I bet you can’t do better than that.”
“Is that a challenge?” April questioned tauntingly.
“Oh boy…” Freeman sat back down on the couch and patiently waited for the inevitable. “Every single time…”
Aina smirked at April before squatting down, spreading her legs a little and keeping her knees outward as though posing for a cameraman just behind her...or Freeman, who ended up seated behind her.
A steaming broiling funk bubbled out of Aina’s backside, making a sound like bubbling mud in the depths of her jeans. She grinned widely as her fart carried on, filling the room with a powerful stench as though she’d just taken a large dump behind her before spraying down a stream of cherry juice. After a resounding fourteen seconds, Aina sighed as her fart ended with a moist thump akin to a soaked towel landing on a tile floor.
“You bet it is,” she answered April back.
Freeman breathed in the scent eagerly, filling his lungs with the thick heavy scent that swam through the air. “That’s gotta be one of her best farts yet,” he murmured to himself.
"Oh, it's on now," April excitedly said as she accepted the fart challenge. "Red, I'm gonna need your help."
"I'll do anything for you, sis," Red responded as he listens to April's whispering words.
"Really? That's it? Okay. Let's just get this over with," Red said he sits on the couch next Freeman, who raised an eyebrow as Red sat down.
“Came to watch the show?” he asked jokingly.
"Nope, I'm going be another contestant in it," Red giggled nervously.
“Well, good luck with that,” Freeman chuckled.
“And the best of luck to you as well,” Red replied while shaking Freeman’s hand.
“Oh I won’t be in this, trust me,” Freeman said, his gaze turning towards Aina who winked back at him with a smile. “I know I’m already beat.”
April walked over and sat gently on Red's lap. Just like Aina, April had also winked at...um... fart helper. Positioned perfectly, she turn to her side lifting up her right cheek.
A semi-wet gas bubble murdered the competition as the fart lasted for 17 seconds. The foul-stink had combined with Aina’s earlier flatulence The flatulent emission had smelled of rotten meat and stinky fruit.
“Wow! That must of been better Aina’s,”April thought proudly to herself.
Red thought to himself “I hope that this won’t make Aina angry and challenge April to a fart contest. That would be the worst.”
“How was that?” April sighed, confidently. “Was it awesome?”
“Yeah, it was awesome!!” Red stated excitedly.
“Uhh...Actually, Red. I was talking to Aina,” April replied.
Sadly, Red said as he got out from April’s large backside, “Oh.”
“Hmmmm…” Aina sniffed the air and examined the fart as though it were a wine she were tasting, working to determine its worth. “Not bad,” she finally said after a few more minutes, “but I think it’s missing something.”
“And what would that be, Aina?” April questioned as she raised an eyebrow.
Aina smiled and bit her lower lip.
A resounding boom echoed into the room for a solid thirty-two seconds, flattening the stench that had been swimming in the air before as a cannonball dive of cherry-packed cows bombed the local swimming pool that was the group’s senses before surfacing into a perfectly synchronized, “Aaahhhhh,” of relief from Aina. The humidity in the room seemed to come up a bit after that one as well, a slight haze showing in the light.
“There we go! Now it’s perfect!” Aina laughed as she embraced her funk with a loud sniff.
April and Red waved their hands in front of their faces. “P.U.*cough...cough* That was a funky fart *cough*.” They began to rub their watering eyes, working to get the stench out from their tears.
“Hehe, think you can top that?” Aina asked.
“Well, maybe,” replied April.
April grinned and lift both of her legs.
Another wet, bubbly fart crawls out of April’s larger-normal-backside. The fart smelled worse as it smells like a moldy cheese and rotten fruit factory. What made things worse is that it lasted for a whole minute as if she wanted to the flatulence bomb to last longer than a minute. That could be a hunch.
“Ha-ha-ha! Kids are cool and Middle-aged adults….get lazy,” April taunted as she blows a raspberry at Aina.
“Don’t be rude, April,” Red said, “This is just for fun so that’s not turn this into a fart contest that could end badly for you and Aina.”
Freeman looked over at Aina, who had a peculiar look about her now. There are few things in this world that one should do, for a healthy fear is what keeps people from doing these things. Skydiving without a parachute, journeying to the center of the Earth, going into space without a spacesuit - but none of these lethally dangerous acts compare to one thing no man or woman should consider doing: invoke a woman’s scorn.
And of the many women one can scorn, Aina’s might be one of the few you don’t want to scorn.
Now she looked up at April, a cruel smile spread across her face. “Middle-aged, you say…” she repeated, a slight chuckle coming from her mouth. “Oh you’ve no idea, though, you’re too young. But middle-aged isn’t twenty-three years old. Kids should know better than to taunt their elders so…”
Suddenly, and with alarming speed, Aina rushed down April, pinning her to the floor and quickly turning about to present her delicious rumpus to her. “Lemme show ya how ‘lazy’ this ‘middle-aged adult’ is!!” Aina cried out, laughing maniacally as her anus yawned open.
April began to scream as loud as she could, leaving her karma-filled doom. This torture would totally make her learn two important lessons in life: Respect Aina and Don’t underestimate Aina! Her open mouth was now acting as a pipeline in natural gas factory - Aina’s natural gas factory, to be exact! Across her tongue fumed a tasteful cloud of meat, cherries, rotten veggies, and moldy bread that spread down through her throat and into her lungs, quickly silencing her attempts at screaming Aina off all within the first minute of Aina’s ass blast.
Pumping out of her booty were the somewhat muffled sounds of what could very well be several rockets firing off into the air before exploding into beautiful bursts in the sky. Granted, those beautiful bursts came down with their own stench, now leaking out of the sides of April’s mouth and beginning to fill up the rest of the room. Aina continued to toot her own trumpet, all the while continuing to laugh like a cackling hyena as her fart roared past the second minute and well on its way to pushing past the third.
“Hey, Aina. Hey Aina! HEY AINA!!! I think April has suffered enough!!!!!!” Red intervened as he had seen enough torture.
“Oh, did you want some too, Red?” And before he could respond, Aina grabbed him from behind and stuffed his face in her butt as it continued to roar out loud.
He took it like a man. Not crying or whining at all. Just took it like a mature man. Besides, Red didn’t deserve this fart bombardment, but April did for making fun of Aina more. Unlike April who was crying fakely, Red had became strong and less sly over the course of this….thing. So he did the thing that made him stronger than he is now: standing up for himself and tell Aina what be popping in this bitch.
“No, No, No, No. I was just saying you're torturing April a little too much!” Red replied...LIKE A MAN, even if his voice was muffled by Aina’s gas machine.
“Eh? Did you say something?” Aina stopped her relentless gassing just shy of three-and-a-half minutes, checking up on Red to see what he had as a heaving gaseous funk encapsulated the air in the room.
*Cough...Cough* “I said that you are torturing April too much and I want you to stop before you make her unconscious.” *Cough...Cough* Red repeated again...LIKE A muffled MAN!
Aina looked over at April to check up on her, the girl rolling a little on the floor. She was barely conscious, it seemed, just dealing with the consequences of her misstep. Aina simply smiled with a light chuckle.
“She looks fine to me!” she teased.
“Now Aina, you don’t need to go overdoing it over children,” Freeman spoke up from behind the couch, having ducked behind it to avoid Aina’s wrath, though the stench proved to be far from avoidable. Not that he was complaining over that anyway.
“Yeah, don’t kill me...Look, I’m sorry for calling you middle-aged and lazy. I was just playing around by taunting you after I farted longer than you that. I guess I just wanted to be better than you and I’m also sorry for blow a raspberry at you. So can you forgiven me?” April pleaded for mercy as she, Red, Freeman have had enough.
“I wouldn’t say she’d kill ya…”
Aina walked over and patted April on the head. “Just be more respectful of other people, okey-dokey?” she said. “After all, you’ve no idea what they’d be able to do to ya.”
In a loving and touching response, April gave Aina a big hug. “Thank you, Aina.”
Red also joined in the lovely hug, created a group hug. “Hey, I wanna hug too.”
Aina hugged the children back, a warm smile on her face as Freeman walked over and huddled into the group hug too. For a minute, the group looked rather nice and peaceful; it’d be hard to believe that just a few moments ago was turmoil and chaos, save for the overpowering scent of cherry-coated burgers from the local landfill that still wafted through the air.
Finally, Aina rose up and stretched her arms. “Well, it’s getting pretty late,” she said. “We should probably get you guys back home.”
“Aw, man, but we like it here. We want to stay,” April and Red begged as if they were young infants. “Please don’t make us leave. Please?”
“You said you two were staying at your sensei’s place, right?” Freeman asked. “Don’t you think he’d be worried about you two not coming home tonight?”
“Probably, but I don’t care,” Red replied.
“RED?! APRIL?! WHERE ARE YOU, KIDS?” said a loud and boom voice, who was none other than Sensei Sponeg, searching for the kids. He had been looking for an hour and a half.
“...wow, that guy’s loud,” Aina noted.
“Well he seems to be looking for you two now,” Freeman pointed out to the children.
Quickly, the 2 ninjas hide under the couch, scared. “Don’t let him find us. He gonna make us work and run and work and run and work and run constantly for 3 hours straight for 7 days a week and 365 days a year..”
“I thought you guys liked that?” Aina wondered aloud.
“He could be reasonable, what’s one night away from the dojo?” Freeman shrugged.
“I don’t think that’s gonna change much, he could just move those 3 hours around,” Aina noted.
“But if we keep them here for much longer, they’ll suffer more in order to make up for those hours…”
“The best thing would be to let them go back for a bit!”
“Three hours can’t be that bad could it?”
“Are you kidding?! Working 3 hours with Sponeg is terrible!” screamed April in a serious tone as she jumped on Freeman and hid under his shirt.
“Yeah and it’s like not eating for 10 hours in the desert!” Red agreed as he jumped on Aina, accidentally sinking his nails in her back.
Aina cringed at Red’s clawing her back, working to lower him down onto the ground. “What’s the worst that could happen with you going back now that wouldn’t happen later?” she asked. “What does he have you guys running and working for in 3 hours?”
Red hated to see Aina cringe so he released his painful nails from her back and sat cutely on the ground before speaking. “He’s probably going to make us eat vegetables until we get sick or he’ll make us lay on a machine that torture people by stretching their bodies till their legs and arms snap off!”
Thinking that Red was just talking out of arse at this point, April decides to bring him back to reality by conforming him and gently pats his head. “Sponeg is crazy, but he’s not that crazy.”
“I was gonna say, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t use something like that,” Freeman said. “And vegetables aren’t that bad for you. Granted, force-feeding anything is bad, but veggies are usually pretty good.”
Aina sighed. “There’s no reason you guys can’t at least go tell him where you’re at and make sure he’s not worried for you two,” she told the two ninjas. “It’d just be courteous, that’s all! You don’t want him to be worried about you guys, do you?”
Red starred in Aina’s cute and beautiful green eyes and responded with a respectable “no,” to her question. When Red did this, there was knock on the front door. Assuming it was Sponeg, April and Red...hid under the couch like cowards. Aina simply rolled her eyes at the two as she went to answer the door.
“Can I help you?” she asked as she opened the door.
Apparently, it was Sponeg disguised as Deadpool/Spiderman as he hung upside down from a spiderweb he created 20 mins ago. “Hello, I wondering if you’ve seen two ninjas, one is red and the other is blue. I’ve been looking all them all day and they’ve been worried sick about them.”
“Oh, yeah, we’ve been taking care of them for the day,” Aina replied. “Red and April, right? Don’t worry, they’ve been on their best behavior!”
Sponeg became overjoyed. “Oh thank goodness. I thought I was going to have to do something dangerous...not that I would anyway,” He smiled widely as he throw away as steel pipe that in his web with him.
Red and April walked to the front door with tears rolling down from their faces for they were sad that they had to leave. “Sensei, please don’t make us go. This has been the greatest day ever, hanging out with Freeman and Aina. Taking us away from this is like cutting off a piece of our hearts. We mean, the truth is they have bonded into very good best friends of ours in which our friendship will last fivever.” After finishing their speech, they began to cry monstrously and hugged Aina and Freeman’s legs.
Sponeg was puzzled of what to say until, “This is true, Aina and Freeman?”
“Well, I wouldn’t have described it so extremely…” Freeman murmured.
Aina sighed again as she patted April’s head. “It’s exaggerated, but it’s true,” she replied. “We’ve had a great day with these two. I mean, they managed to get me back my purse and taught us a really unique recipe for burgers! It’s been a lot of fun having the two of them around, even if it’s only been for a day.”
“Yeah, what Aina said,” April replied.
“Hmm...Alright. I’ll take them home, but I will let them visit some time to have more fun with you guys mif that’s cool,” Sponeg stated.
“Really?!! Oh, ThankyouthankyouthankyousomuchSensei~,” April and Red screamed in joy as they hugged Sponeg. Then they gave Aina and Freeman huge bear hugs.
“Just make sure you let us know when you’re coming so we can be ready for you two,” Freeman noted.
“Yeah, that’d be nice,” Aina said with a smile.
“Don’t worry. We will,” April replied as grabbed Red and hopped into Sponeg’s spiderweb.
Sponeg teleported himself and Ninjas home to Sponegland as they waved goodbye. Luckily to Freeman and Aina, Sponegland was the name of the house where the ninjas lived in and it was only 5 doors down from the couple.
“Wait, they’re only 5 doors down from us?” Freeman asked, looking down the hall.
Aina just sighed more wistfully. “Looks like this is going to be the start of something...quirky,” she said with a light chuckle.
