Chapter 13, Baesment!
“That was the worst bunch of bad guys ever.”, Yuugi said. “They didn’t even explode anything, or kidnap someone or-“
“Shut up Yuugi.”
Hikaru had taken the liberty of leading the group through the building. Although she had no idea where to go, and the others weren’t actually helping. At all.
“I bet we have to go to the basement.”, Yuugi continued, completely ignoring Chihon’s earlier order for him to shut up. “Bad guys are always doing stuff in the basement.” Pavel nodded, looking dead-serious. “Unless there’s trouble in paradise.” Chihon sighed deeply. “That’s not what the phrase means, Pavel. “, she muttered, but Pavel, just like Yuugi, was completely ignoring it. Even though, Hikaru thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea to go check the basement anyway. They haven’t been there yet. What could possibly happen?
Well, Luna complaining about clichés, Pavel bragging about his night vision and Chihon almost falling from the stairs. But to Hikaru, that was actually an uneventful descend. The only thing that was bothering her was that it was pitch black in the basement, and judging by the way that their voices echoed, it also was big as hell. Great.
Groping around the walls (and Yuugi making a joke about groping around the walls) Chihon found the light switch and the lights of the basement flickered on. They made this buzzing noise that Hikaru could best describe as ‘Yuugi when it rains’ and it gave her a legit bad guy hideout-feel. Said boyfriend was hovering next to her and eyeing the light bulbs suspiciously. Hikaru looked at them too, but noticed nothing wrong. She sighed and shook her head. Stupid boyfriend.
“Uhm, guys, look at this…”, Luna said. “There’s a beautiful lady sitting here.”, Pavel added. Chihon, in her turn, groaned. “You think every lady is beautiful, mind you. Don’t go off trying to court every female on this planet, will you.” Pavel just smirked.
Yuugi and Hikaru walked over to the others. Although Yuugi was still hovering. Stupid boyfriend. Sitting in a circle of machinery sat a girl, wrapped in a red piece of cloth. She looked at Pavel with a smile. “It’s fine mister, I see it as a compliment.”
Although it was not okay.
It was so not okay that Yuugi punched Pavel in the face. “Don’t you start hitting on my sister you bloodsucker!”
