Ha! Exams are over, and I get to update! Take that, freaky guidance counselor dude!
Chapter 3: Wufei's Personal Hell
"Apparently the drug problems on L2 aren't as trivial as we thought they were. The worst of the smuggling is comissioned by a man called Big Joe Maratini. Sources show that he's got enough followers and capital to start a small army, and that's what he just did a few days ago." Sally pointed to the three small knapsacks on the floor. "You three need to get in, figure out what he's doing and where he's getting the goods, and possibly sabotage the operation, with extra emphasis on possibly. I don't want any of you getting killed trying to get rid of the man himself. Understood?"
"Got it, Sally."
The woman pointed to the bags. "These contain emergency rations, guns and ammunition, and fake IDs. The rations are to be used only in an emergency, and no Duo, snack time is not an emergency."
"Heheh. Got it." Duo said, blushing slightly.
"I don't think I need to remind you that the IDs are not to be used for anything silly, either. Nor are they to be lost."
"Okay, you're all done. Look through the bags and figure out what's what, and be ready to catch a shuttle by three o'clock." With that, the resident commander of the Preventers turned smartly on her heel and walked off, leaving the three agents to rummage through the bags.
"IDs..." Duo muttered. "This one's probably me, judging by the hair."
"Only you," Wufei muttered. "would go undercover with something as obviously recognizable as that damned braid. How you're still alive, I'll never know."
"It's because I'm Shinigami, and everyone knows that Shinigami can't die." Duo pointed out with a grin. The Chinese boy shook his head in disgust and grabbed his own ID.
"Just don't forget what your name is supposed to be." Heero said. "Or something equally stupid."
"Why is it that everyone expects me to make a mess?"
"Because you usually do."
"No, you're not."
Duo cracked his famous grin. "Okay, so I'm not." He peered at the ID in Wufei's hand and gave a slow whistle. "At least I don't have a name like 'Chun Li.' It sounds like one of those crazy martial arts guys from those old movies Quatre likes."
"Shut up Maxwell."
"Correction, Simon Cass."
"Shut up Simon Cass, then."
"Hey Heero, what's yours?"
The newly dubbed Simon Cass bounced over to investigate. "'Hn?' That's an awfully funny name. Lemme see."
"It can't be that bad, can it?" Duo grabbed the card out of Heero's hand. "'Iwashi Mikanhito?' Dude, who'd you piss off?"
Heero replied with his Death Glare", which Duo ignored.
"So come on, I am the Whistler, I have a fife, and a drum to play. Dadadadata. Get ready, I am the Whistler, I whistle along on the seventh day. Whistle along on the--"
Wufei glared over at his seatmate. "Cass, what are you muttering about?"
Duo jumped about two feet in the air and took off one of his headphones. "What?" he asked.
"No, you said something."
"I said, never mind!" Lucky Heero, Wufei thought. Heero was sitting across the aisle, next to a young mother and her three young children.
A cheeful female voice came on over the PA system. "Excuse me, this shuttle will be arriving on L2 within the next five minutes. Please collect all your personal belongings and have IDs ready for inspection. Thank you for your patronage."
"Woohoo!" Duo yelled. Wufei gave him another glare.
"Simon Cass, get your ass back in that seat before I'm forced to put it there." he muttered through clenched teeth.
"Lighten up, Chumlie." Duo replied happily, but sat down anyway.
"It's Chun Li, and don't forget it." Wufei muttered. "I knew you'd do something stupid."
The PA system came back on.
"We have arrived on L2. Please proceed to the front with all your personal belongings and have IDs ready for inspection. Note that the shuttle company is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. Thank you for your patronage and have a nice day."
"Wonder if the company is responsible for lost sanity." Wufei muttered as he and his fellow Preventers got their duffle bags and went to the front of the shuttle. Duo jumped as if he'd been stung by something and ran to the front of the line, ducking under arms and nearly knocking over an elderly woman, grinning madly the whole time. "Or injuries caused by insane morons."

Reviewing things is fun. We like reviewing things, especially stories. I'm just a little hyper today.
