    The Tempurature Is High Tonight

    Date: 23rd September, 2013

    It had been no time at all. Aradia had tried to assert her authority, but Eridan had objected and they had quickly begun an argument... over who was the faster of the two, of all things. Eridan had made some pretty assertious claims, all of which he was certain were true because he was very arrogant here; he had the utmost confidence in himself and thoroughly expected himself to kick Aradia's ass. He didn't believe for a second that the ram-troll had a hope in hell of even coming close behind him, but he hadn't raced in a while. Namely, ever, really.

    So, did he have what it took? There was only one way to find out, and that was to try. The stakes were high; if Eridan won, Aradia would refer to him as a higher-up despite them being on the Breach and would take swimming lessons from him. If Aradia won, she'd dress him up in a tempura costume and walk through Portal City with him every day for a week. Her victory conditions were significantly worse, but he hadn't matched them quite because he didn't expect to lose.

    As he lay the foundations of the start/finish line, Eridan grinned smugly to himself. He was going to kick her sorry ass... or, so he thought.

    For a second, Aradia worried if this competition over dominance would prove troublesome for their relationship if it wasn't under control. Contrary popular belief, an Aries troll wasn't as impulsive or reckless when the situation regarded her friends. Facing a terrible doom should things go awry, Aradia would be like: Sure! Let's go for it, full speed! Take it by storm! But with friends, it was totally different. She had lost her relationships with those who mattered the most to her forever; she treated every close friend she had carefully, not willing to take risks because she believed she knew how delicate they and her bond with them could be--even on Portal Breach. Especially Portal Breach. Just look at those forlorn travelers come and go.

    When they argued, though, Aradia could only chuckle. He asserted his authority, which sort of made her proud and relieved all at the same time, because he appeared so fragile and vulnerable when he silently grieved over... what happened. Aradia decided to be polite and not refer to it explicitly since she didn't want to upset Eridan. Sure, she could gently nudge him out of his hermit crab shell onward to the future, but the curly horned troll simply couldn't shove him here and there. She wasn't a slave driver, and he wasn't her pet. He'd have to seize control of his life for himself. Once he accepted her challenge, the rust blood assumed that the Prince of Hope was doing just. Now all he had to do was prove that he was more than just his bark; Eridan had to bite.

    Aradia's eyes glinted with excitement as she got into a ready position: casual, poised, and prepared to spring into action!

    Aradia had likely chosen one of the more effective methods of getting Eridan out of the little... phase he'd been going through. He mourned for the loss of everyone else less and less as the days went by, thinking less and less about them and gradually turning back into his old self. It was happening at a much faster rate than it would have, too, due to the efforts of one individual. He really did have to thank you, Aradia. He likely wouldn't, but if he ever did thank someone it'd likely be you.

    "ready to LOSE because im not gonna hold back evven for you ara" He finished up making the starting line and the finishing line (which was a good way away; trolls were pretty fast, after all) and he lined up next to Aradia. He knew he was a good runner, but he hadn't ran in a while. Still, didn't affect his arrogance in the matter. The air was thick with the tension. WHO WOULD WIN THE RACE. WHO WOULD LOSE. No-one knooooows, as it is a complete mystery.

    "im so goin to wwin my fuckin feet are itchin to kick your ass an run faster than youvve evver seen anythin run before" He stated.

    The match lined up, and Eridan started counting down.

    "3"

    "2"

    "1"

    "GO"


    He set off into a dash, as soon as the countdown ended. Could you match him?

    Oh, boy, this would be fun. A race against the one and only Eridan Ampora? Sure! Aradia Megido could totally kick his ass! And she was more than glad to race him into the ground since it made him more chipper! Well, distracting him in any way she could was going to work, but she couldn't traumatize or anything to replace the anguish that was fading! No, she had to get rid of his pain completely, so the Maid was going to have tons of fun with the Prince of Hope until he's not that sad little dude anymore.

    "ready to LOSE because im not gonna hold back evven for you ara"

    The Aries trolls' eyes glinted with amusement. "b0ll0cks! y0u t00k the w0rds 0ut 0f my m0uth! ill f0rce feed them back t0 y0u bef0re the race is even 0ver" She smiled in satisfaction as she saw that the starting line and the finishing line were in their proper place. There was enough distance for a sprint, for Alternian sprints anyway. Human sprints were many meters short. My, even Aradia was too lazy to determine the proper unit conversion. Still, it was definitely more than 100 meters, at least.

    "im so goin to wwin my fuckin feet are itchin to kick your ass an run faster than youvve evver seen anythin run before"

    "in y0ur fucking dreams amp0ra" Aradia rolled her eyes. "by the time this race is d0ne i expect y0u t0 be in a tempura suit bef0re y0u even kn0w it because ill put it 0n y0u s0 fast y0ull be wearing the c0stume right bef0re y0u even reach the finish line"

    "3"

    "2"

    "1"

    "GO"


    Aradia dashed the moment the countdown ended, pacing herself appropriately so that she didn't waste all of her energy yet so that the ram troll was capable of pushing on faster and faster as she reached further parts of her sprint.[/quote]

    Eridan was as arrogant in this field as ever, fully willing to race. Of course, there was a chance that he'd lose. But there was equally a chance that he'd win. Right? Unless Aradia used her powers to cheat. Which, while Eridan hadn't actually thought of that, hadn't been stated as against the rules. So basically, if Aradia decided to play dirty, Eridan would be screwed. Why? Because he didn't really have any powers thus far, aside from the power to destroy hope. He never got to God Tier, and he was a highblood, after all.

    As Aradia started, Eridan did too. "fuck that suit you wwouldnt get me in that piece a shit if my life depended on it" He replied as he ran. Eugh... she was ever-so-slowly pulling ahead. At this point, the true implications of losing begun to dawn upon the royalblood. If he lost, he'd be forced to wear a fucking Tempura suit. And truth be told, he had no way of stopping Aradia from putting him inside one anyway, what with her telekinesis powers and all. So basically, it was win this, or be forced into embarrassment.

    With this in the back of his mind, Eridan picked up speed. In a mad dash, he overtook Aradia bit by bit, feeling as certain of himself as he could after that relevation.

    What were the rules of this race, even? Aradia Megido found herself satisfied that whatever pompous remark or attitude Eridan Ampora could have was nonexistent. She knew just as well as that he was tough in a fight and pretty speedy at whatever he had to do. She had all of that telekinetic power. Couldn't beat that. She could use those to cheat. After all, a royal mertroll in a tempura suit was a sight to behold. She could put fake sauce on him and all of that and wallow in his misery, but Aradia promised herself she would only do so if it were absolutely necessary.

    She stuck her tongue out before quickly retracting it. "well have t0 see ab0ut that fish sticks" Already, she could envision her masterpiece, with Eridan as her very unhappy muse. She was pulling ahead and boy, it was wonderful. Aradia could already smell his fear of losing from a mile away, but he was catching up--no! He was getting ahead of her! Damn it! That was a big no-no! Now, Aradia will have to put the pedal on the gas, though the figure of speech was very ill-suited to the situation. Her eyes narrowed on the violet blood.

    The young girl picked it up a notch, running as fast as she could. She had not even lost her first wind yet, though already she could taste the ever solid tension and see the close call just waiting to come.

    Rules, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeh. There were no rules. Rules were awful! Besides, Eridan knew he could win anyway. He just had to run at his fastest, and not fall behind. Instead, SHE should fall behind! Plus, he knew that he was naturally faster than her at full speed. He just had to keep it up, and he would win... he'd had to lift things his life, anyway! He didn't get telekinesis, unlike some rust blooded trolls and the like that were around that particular blood colour. Eridan trained his strength from there on.

    "wwa FUCK" He failed to notice the onslaught of natural shenanigans that was headed his way. The troll's foot smacked against a rock, sticking up out of the ground, and as the rock was dislodged by his foot. What else was ruined, other than that rock's place? That troll's pace. He was launched forward as he failed to stop due to his speed, and his glasses flew off his face as he fell onto the dirt. He grabbed around as Aradia sped past him, finding his glasses, putting them on, leaping up, and running after her.

    Shit. That could even give her the race...

    The ram troll was more than sure that at full speed, he could be faster than her and at full strength, he would be stronger than her. However, she had mind power (literally) so that could help. Even though there weren't any rules to this fun little race, she would win it the traditional way. Although, Aradia Megido made sure to levitate the pebble and other obstacles in her way as far away as possible. She couldn't make the same mistake her fellow runner had made just seconds ago before his little cussing outburst.

    "yay~" Aradia smiled brightly as she predicted that she would win the race after the rock had tripped Ampora. She then sped ahead like she was on some sort of victory road, doing her best to avoid any obstacles she hadn't removed. With her telekinesis, she simply put them out of her way. Out of pity for Eridan, she also removed a rock that was bound to get in his way before merrily running out. She was pretty sure that there was no hope for him and could only do the natural thing: run to try and get ahead.

    At godspeed, the young girl dashed to the finish line.

    Eridan got up, failing to notice the rocks that Aradia moved for him to prevent him from falling over. It was helpful, at least. He all but despaired as she let out her irritatingly cheerful "yay~" upon crossing the finish line. Damn you, Aradia Megido. Damn you. There was no way... he couldn't believe he'd actually lost! What a miserable stroke of bad luck! He'd tripped... what the hell? He should have gone over the race track beforehand and picked out bits like that, so he wouldn't trip! Then, he'd have actually won! God, she was gonna put him in a tempura outfit now, wasn't she...

    Eridan followed Aradia, crossing the finish line half-heartedly. He looked at her, a glare full of emotion as she would realise the full-on extent of how upset he was because of that. He was practically fighting an internal battle as to whether to hold true to his promise, whether to just run away, whether to reject and not get in the suit, and whether to get overly upset about it, as well as whether to demand a rematch. Then again, half of those scenarios would just result in her dragging him back and forcing him to suit up whether he liked it or not.

    There was really no way out of this, was there...?

    Waiting for her grumpy colleague at the finish line, Aradia Megido tapped her foot on the ground absentmindedly and put her thinking cap on. Why, she could feel all his curses from a mile away, of course! However, there was one unresolved matter that came all out of the blue; truly, she felt surprised: don't get her wrong. It's just... There was this tugging feeling that resembled (gasp! Oh no!) empathy, but it wasn't as dire as she believed it would be. The proper word to describe it was pity. What a queer feeling indeed it was. In fact, the ram troll wasn't sure whether she had ever felt it before...

    All she could do was act on it. She really had no choice though; Eridan Ampora looked like a hapless deer in headlights, deciding whether to fight or flee. The rust blood could always just ensnare him with something she lifted via telekinesis and drag him back, but for now, she had already done enough damage. Eventually, though, she'd have to recharge. On the other hand, her pity was so great she began to feel a vague sense of remorse. In order to quell such an abominable emotion, the Alternian girl decided firmly to pardon him, even for the shortest of time.

    "y0u sh0uld rest up y0ure free f0r n0w i cant just f0rce y0u int0 humiliati0n straight after a race i might enj0y making fun 0f y0u but that d0esnt mean im s0me kind 0f sadist"

    Of course he looked like a hapless deer in headlights! He'd just lost a race due to a single trip up that he could not afford to lose because it had terrible consequences. Well, shit. He was just gonna have to tough it out. Pretend as if he didn't care, maybe she would rethi- nooo, there's no point. She was gonna go through with it. Aradia was not the type to just give up because the other person looked like he wasn't bothered. She'd go through with it anyway, and would undoubtedly see through his guise the second he started wearing it.

    "i didnt think that youd showw so much mercy thanks mistress ara" Don't push it, Ampora. She might change her mind if you do. Would you rather you were forced into the suit now, or later? Trust me, you wanted time to prepare. That was for the best, anyway. "wwait did you just argue youre not a sadist this entire thin provves the opposite ara but that doesnt mean go back on wwhat you just said no you should let me get ovver my feelin an then do it or something maybe not do it at all thatd be great" Sly, Eridan. Sly. Except, not at all, really.

    No hope in hell, Mr. Ampora~

    Aradia Megido was one stubborn girl. If you thought that she was just going to give up because you'd sweet talk her and give her dem baby doll eyes then you can kiss your ass goodbye and slap your head with the keyboard you are typing with at this moment! However, since Eridan definitely knew better than that, he gets a gold star. Good for him! Maybe next time he won't be forced into wearing something so stupid again! Alas, that was a hope for some other day. Today was the doomsday, and don't you worry: tomorrow's gonna be a big, big day!

    "y0ure such a darling eridan i bet that 0nce i get y0u in that tempura suit id want t0 eat y0u right up~" Aradia said in a mocking attempt to be sexy. She was only kidding though and to prove it, she flicked his forehead childishly. "silly eridan im n0t enj0ying y0ur pain and humiliati0n im celebrating my newf0und racing superi0rity y0u 0f all pe0ple but as merciful as i may be t0day its n0t g0ing t0 say y0u fr0m t0m0rr0w" There is no escape, Eridan Ampora. Say your prayers!

    Well, at least you'd be tasty~

    Damn your unflinching will, Aradia Megido. Damn it to the Netherworld and back! Eridan was just absolutely the opposite of full of himself, at the minute. He knew he'd lost, and he wasn't particularly gonna object (okay, that might be a teeeeensy lie), but he was gonna look defeated anyway and hope to extract more mercy from the hard-headed victor of that little race. It hadn't even been faaaaiiiiir. Damn rocks. Why didn't he remove them? He'd have managed to stay in the lead if he had, and he might even have won in the end...

    Oh, well, bollocks. He stared at her as she spoke, not mustering a reply to her first line about eating him up. You'd have to go a significant way to eat him up, you race-winning tempura suit-wielding and equipping-on-the-prince-a-hope monster of a troll! But, whaaaaaat? "newwfound racin superiority i fuckin wwas wwinnin before that rock got in my wway" He complained, folding his arms and staring at her defiantly. He wouldn't take that as the definitive answer, Megido! Still... "tomorrowws gonna be a fuckin female wwoofbeast im gonna go back to the hivve" He turned his back, starting his walk to the Hive.

    If you take risks, you're bound to lose a few, Mr. Ampora~

    Aradia Megido had one hell of a will and you knew it. Those impenetrable lines of a mental fortess could never be bested, and while Eridan Ampora was meek, she certainly was not. Right now she was reveling in her glory and relishing her victory, thinking it was because of her own merits she managed to win. After all, who was the one who kept her eyes open? She did! And even if she did overtake him, she'd definitely win because she'd still look out for rocks and you knew it! But then again, she was just mentally bragging to herself because she had just won her first race against him! If anything, that definitely was something to be proud of!

    Aradia smiled at the mertroll victoriously as he remained silent, not responding to her mock eating-him-up line. It was obvious she didn't mean it; who'd want to eat him up? She sure didn't. She just wanted to aggravate him just a teensy bit more. So she did. "i was waiting f0r the right m0ment t0 0vertake y0u and l00k! there it was it c0uldnt be m0re than 0bvi0us that there was a r0ck there anyway h0w c0uld y0u have missed it?" It was night, Mr. Ampora! You were a troll and meant to operate like a boss! You silly, silly little purple blood! Come back later when you learn to see! Still, the curly horned ram troll couldn't stay out here all the time, so she decided to follow suit.

    Risks were certainly as wonderful as her triumph~ If you can't lose big, then obviously, you can't win big~ That's just how the game works!
