High Horses

Post by Equilibrium on Sun Jun 03, 2018 8:43 pm

The twins were bored.
This was nothing new; they were bored quite regularly, and so had to find ways to quell this regularly. The school day was done, and they didn't have rehearsal for the play this evening, so they prowled the halls, their hard soled shoes clicking loudly, looking for someone to entertain them. It didn't take long for them to find someone.
Sitting alone at the cafeteria was one of their classmates, a boy by the name of Alex. The twins shared their statistics class with him, and his scores were almost as high as theirs, a fact he was quietly proud of, and they were not. As was common for Alex, he was sitting alone in the cafeteria, studying diligently. The twins found it funny how he always spent so much time reading through textbooks, practicing worksheets, trying so hard. Learning came easily to them, and they were baffled at how someone who needed to waste so much time practicing to gain knowledge could get scores as high as his. They looked at each other and grinned, thinking exactly the same thought. Perhaps we can help him, in our own special way.
Yin and Yang clicked over to Alex, who was too absorbed in his studies to notice them arriving. With a single swift movement, Yin slammed his textbook shut, the sound echoing in the empty cafeteria, and Yang slid it to their side of the table.
"What have we here, beloved brother?" Yin asked, a hand resting possessively on the textbook; chemistry, a dull subject, one that shouldn't need hours dedicated to it to learn.
"It seems to me that the 'boy genius' is struggling with his studies, sweet sister." Yang answered; the two grinned at Alex as they spoke.
"Uh... D-do you two mind? I need to study. I have a test tomorrow." Alex explained, confused and somewhat irritated by their interruption.
The twins' faces lit up as they heard this, and swiftly sat down across from him. "Then shouldn't you be comfortable enough with the subject by now, genius Alex?" Yang asked sarcastically.
"Surely someone as smart as you is comfortable enough with the material to get a sufficiently high test score, aren't you?" Yin added.
The two smiled coldly at Alex, then turned to each other as they had the same idea. "Why, if you need help studying, we can help you!" They chimed in unison, the tone of their voices cruel despite their friendly words.
"As you know..." Yang tapped the textbook under his sister's hand. "You won't be allowed this when you're taking the test..."
"So it would be best if you learned to walk without this crutch." Yin slide the text book off the table, hugging it against her chest. "We will, of course return it after your test tomorrow, we know that you'll need it in the future."
"We're not cruel." They said in unison, standing up to leave.
"HEY!" Alex shouted, standing as well. "You can't just STEAL that from me! I need to study! You-- HEY!" The twins were beginning to walk away, taking the textbook with them, Alex shouting after them.
Perhaps a lower test score will knock proud Alex off his high horse. Yin thought.
Exactly, intelligent sister. Thinking he's as smart as us when he's simply diligent is a mistake. Yang answered to her.
And mistakes are meant to be corrected. They thought together.

Jeremy glanced up from his food to watch two kids, who looked very similar and were calling themselves brother and sister, pick on some other kid studying. He watched as they took his book and clearly the kid wasn't giving it to them with the way he was shouting. Welp, time to pull out the trust water jug and kick so- wait... Where is the jug? Jeremy let out a sigh and slapped himself on the forehead. Okay... Gonna have to wing it, at least they were in a cafeteria, a place with a lot of water in cups and bottles.

He went up to a kid with a full water bottle and pulled out a few coins, "Mind if I buy that water from you?"

The kid looked at Jeremy a little crazy, then shrugged, "Alright, here."

Jeremy thanked the kid, then took the bottle of water and went towards the twins as they walked away. Okay, he didn't want to mess up that kid's book, their backs were turned... He just had to get their attention. He took out some water and make two decent sized balls. Within a moment, he launched one to each of the twins' backs, fairly sure water would get their attention.

Once they were hopefully hit, he stared towards them and said, "Give him his book back."

The twins tensed up and yelped in unison as the water hit them, surprised and very uncomfortable. They turned around, eyes burning angrily as they simultaneously locked their gazes on Jeremy. There was a tense silence as they glared at him before recomposing themselves. "The brat ruined my shirt, good sister." Yang announced, his dark eyes not wavering from Jeremy.
"Mine as well, dear brother." Yin replied.
"Quite rude of him to interfere with business that doesn't involve him."
"Very rude indeed."
A cold smirk grew on both of their faces. Yin held up the book and waved it. "If you want it, little prankster, by all means you're welcome to it." She cooed.
"If you can earn it, of course." Her brother added. They grinned at him; it was obvious they were planning something, but their faces weren't giving anything away.

Jeremy met their gaze with one of his own. He wasn't about to just back down at the sight of two people looking threatening at him. He wish he had more water, but he could make due with what he had. They were kinda creepy, talking about him right in front of him and never directed towards him. They were calling him rude, though it was somewhat hypocritical of them, but he wasn't gonna falter yet.

They then raised the book in a taunting fashion, he couldn't just attack, because of the book. Wow, this was like a hostage situation... The first hostage he ever had to save was a book... Wow... As they told him he needed to "earn" it, he crossed his arms, and kept staring them down. "Okay. I'm down. What's your game?"

The twins laughed cruelly, a cold, sadistic laugh that echoed through the cafeteria. "Our game? No, no, little prankster. This is your game; it became that way when you accosted us." Yang explained.
"But this game does still involve us, doesn't it, dear brother?"
"Of course, sweet sister. We can't very well let this assault go unanswered, now can we?"
Yin slid the book into her satchel and loosely linked fingers with her brother. The two raised their outside hands and opened their palms, in which a ball of energy about the size of a golf ball materialized; Yin's was white, Yang's was black. "Surely someone like you has learned that if you throw things at people--" Yin started.
"--People will eventually start throwing things back." Yang finished.
"So if you wish to earn this book of his, you need to prove you have a spine. You wanted to pick a fight with the two of us? Congratulations, you got it. Unless you wish to return to minding your own business, like a good boy." They concluded in unison. The two smirked at him; they were well confident that someone chucking water around was sure to be intimidated by being outnumbered, even more so when the greater numbers had power. Considering they only felt the water on their backs, they were completely unaware that Jeremy was super himself.
The twins giggled and closed their hands, the balls of energy evaporating as they did. "We'll be heading out to the parking lot. Feel free to come out and contest us out there, where no third parties need to get harmed."
"Assuming you truly want the textbook of a boy who really doesn't need it."
With that the twins turned on their heels and strode outside to the parking lot. They turned back around and patiently waited for the boy; it was after school anyways, so they wanted to see either his foolish bravado as he came to face them, or his attempts to avoid their gaze as he slunk away past them to go home.

Jeremy was pretty much ready to throw down at that very moment. He stared them down, having an almost completely straight face. They outnumbered him, and were clearly being cocky, showing off their power like that. Welp, now's as good a time as ever to analyze what they can do. While he much rather preferred fighting non-super bullies, the super powered ones were where it was at when it came to difficulty. So they clearly had some sort of identical power, or something that has vastly different effects from one another. He'd rather not find out either way. Clearly though, they could probably throw it. Good news is that they seem really cocky about it, as if he was gonna shy away from challenging them.

He stared them down as they were walking out, speaking loudly enough for them to hear, "Looks like I'm screwed... Alright." Once they were gone, hopefully a fair bit cockier, he took a moment to think... "I probably am screwed if I don't have enough water... Or if it's raining I'll have an advantage..." He made his way to a venting machine just to be safe though and checking the weather before buying anything.

The twins audibly laughed as they heard the meddler say he was screwed; perhaps he wouldn't have the stomach for this. That would be a disappointment, they both thought. But they still casually stood in the parking lot, fingers lightly laced together as they patiently waited in the sunny afternoon for the boy to come out; it was a lovely day to be outside; sunny, warm, but not muggy. No, it had rained a the night before last, as evidenced by a small amount of water still in one of the potholes on the lot. Luckily for Jeremy, despite the lack of water outside, there was still the drinking fountain right next to the exit of the building, so regardless of the lack of rain, he wouldn't be going out empty handed, so long as he still had the water bottle.
Outside, the twins quietly conversed with each other as they waited for their entertainment to come out, occasionally laughing loudly at some inaudible joke their sibling had made.

Jeremy frowned as it was bright and sunny out. He pulled out some spare change and got a second bottle of water. He needed to get an advantage on them somehow. He did already have water on them, so if push comes to shove, he can toast or freeze them, though he was against doing that. They seemed even more cocky than ever as he publicly declared himself screwed back there, so they definitely don't know about his own powers, which was both surprising, and good. He had the element of surprise in more ways than one. He already knows they have some sort of ball thing, but they know nothing on him. He slipped the bottles into his cargo shorts and walked over to Alex on his way out. He stared up at the older kid, saying, "Don't worry sir, your book will be back soon." After that, he cracked his knuckles and headed out, stopping at the water fountain and filling up his other bottle to full capacity, then filling up his mouth.

He walked out to the twins with the most determined look on his face, not a single hint of fear. As he looked around, he saw that there were small puddles of water as well, so he wasn't completely screwed either way. He stopped ten feet away from them and spat the water he was holding in his mouth in their direction as a taunt, then taking a breath. "Sorry, drank too much. Anyways, give me the book back and I won't have to pound you both into submission." As he said this, he put his fists together and stared them dead in the eyes, swapping between them after about half a second.

The twins each raised an eyebrow as they saw him come out, seeming much more confident than he did a minute ago. As he spat the water at them, they instinctively took a half step back, more disgusted at the gesture than feeling threatened. They glanced at each other, then back to him, looking confused, but slightly amused.
"Quite the bold threat from someone whose weapon of choice seems to be water." Yin exclaimed.
"Soaking two people when their backs are turned and spitting at them when they're looking, we're sure you have the strength to pound both of us to a pulp." Yang added sarcastically.
The twins raised their palms, their orbs of energy returning. "Face it, little prankster." They said in unison. "You're outnumbered and out classed. If you wish to get hurt for someone else's issues, we will gladly oblige. But we're giving you one last chance to leave."
With that, their cocky smirks returned; the boy was somewhat gross, and very foolish, but foolishness amused them. And it would be nice for them to get some practice with their powers in anyways; they'd try not to hurt him too much, obviously. They took no pleasure from making people scream, only squirm.
