It was another morning in the beautiful Nowhere Islands. Most of the heroes' family was in their house. Hinawa in the kitchen doing what she loved the most, cooking for their sons whom always praised her food. Claus was lying on the couch watching television while waiting for the breakfast. Flint the twins' father had to work early that day. And finally, Lucas was the one that stayed up the most last night hence he hadn't woken yet.
"Claus, is your brother awaken already?"
"No, you want me to wake him up?"
"Please, the breakfast is almost done,"
After trying, Lucas asked Claus for 5 more minutes. Being the good brother he was, he let Lucas sleep a little more, after more than 10 minutes passed and Claus getting tired of his brother's laziness he decided to do something.
"I have an idea," he smiled.
The redhead went to the kitchen for a glass then filled it with cold water.
"With this Lucas will learn to not drink too much water before sleeping and this will be fun for me to watch, everybody wins."
With that, Claus carefully placed the glass of water beside the bed and put his brother hand inside it, after a few seconds Lucas shivered, Claus chuckled, and suddenly Lucas woke up, throwing the glass of water to his brother face making him wet his entire shirt.
"Great..." Claus muttered
"S-Sorry Cla-wait, what you were trying to do?" Lucas said getting up from the bed
Claus didn't responded, he got up from the chair he was watching the blond and went to the bathroom to change his clothes.
"What happened?" Hinawa asked, after seeing the water poured in the floor.
"Apparently I just ruined Claus' little prank," Lucas said grinning
"It was good luck," the redhead replied
"Well, let's go the breakfast is ready,"
Each one sat at their place on the table and started eating, there were not too much conversation because the twins were concentrated in eating their omelets, Hinawa giggled at this.
When they finished with the breakfast their mom had to leave, she said she had to buy something. Meanwhile Lucas offered himself to do the dishes; Claus didn't have an option, he just lay down in the couch watching Lucas.
He was so bored just watching his brother that he decided to talk to Boney who was also lying down on the floor adjacent to Claus.
"I bet you that he will break at least two dishes trying to brush them, he is obsessed with the little stains," Claus said not expecting an answer for obvious reasons.
Boney grinned and barked "(You're wrong, he will break two dishes, because something will scare him,)"
"What the-" Claus was interrupted by falling down from the couch; he didn't know that he could hear animals.
The sudden noise of Claus hitting the floor made Lucas jump and break 2 dishes.
"Aww, not again,"
"(There is it, now you owe me some steak)" Boney barked getting a glare from Claus.
"What happened Claus, what are you doing on the floor?" Lucas asked.
"I just hear Boney talking?" Claus was not sure if what he just said made any sense at all.
"Oh yeah, you didn't know that," Lucas responded calmly cleaning his mess.
"That our dog talks? No!" Claus exclaimed the last part.
"Ha-ha, he doesn't talk, your PSI make you hear him."
"Claus, Lucas are you there?" Someone shouted from outside the house.
"Who is it?" Claus asked
"It's me Fuel, come on open."
"What's up Fuel." Lucas greeted taking a seat in the couch.
"What, you don't remember?" Fuel rolled his eyes at the clueless look of the twins. "We were going to celebrate; it has been one month since all of this ended, thanks to you two."
After a short talk about how much everything have changed the last month the twins proceeded to change their clothes then leave to the town, along with Fuel and Boney. Most of the town was deserted; the only noise was coming from the place's only hotel where they decided to go. In there they found all the people that were lacking the town. Friends and new citizens were waiting for them in the Yado Inn. The celebration was more like a small party which everyone enjoyed. The only thing that could interrupt the atmosphere for the twins, were the thoughts of how Kumatora and Duster were, they haven't seen them in a whole month.
(Meanwhile at Osohe Castle)
"Where did you hide my clothes?" Kumatora started yelling at a group of ghosts "What's your problem. I hate this uniform!"
"Hey, calm down." One of the ghosts responded "When you left, we decided that that uniform fits you pretty well." "Oh and it's April Fools
"Idiots!" Kumatora yelled once again making her point heard. "We are not even in April." She replied "Now if you don't give me my clothes I'll kill you all."
"Good luck." The group of ghost vanished
For several minutes Kumatora chased the group of ghosts who kept disappearing, until she trapped one in a corner, the ghost was in front of a wardrobe apparently trying to hide something
"You are dead!" Kumatora raised her finger giving off small sparkles and aimed at the ghost, she launched a fireball which missed the real target and burning down the wardrobe.
Kumatora growled for a second, and then realized that her clothes were in the wardrobe, when she lifted them, she found a photo.
The photo had a blond kid and a tall man trying to hold a little brown dog inside a bath, while she was trying to bath the dog with a hose.
"Lucas, Duster, Boney..."
"I remember this picture very well." Kumatora said looking at the picture with a smirk in her face.
(Meanwhile at Wess' house)
"Moron, Moron, Moron!"
"I can't believe you can't learn something as easy and important like this." Wess cried
"I will show you one last time and I hope you get it this time."
"Please no more, my eyes and legs hurt." Duster complained, it was already at night, and they haven't stop dancing and breaking furniture in the process.
Wess started dancing again, he always told this to his son, that this dance would save his life one day, but he never would understand.
"Oh right, now it's your turn, and please do it before I lock up in your room," Wess said trying to keep himself away from raging
"Again? But, but," Duster kept complaining, but he would not win this discussion, his father was one of the most stubborn persons he knew. After give up trying to avoid more failure attempts, he started to copy his dad's steps but it was too hard for him due to his injured leg, after trying a couple times he fell to the floor.
"Good job dad, now my other leg hurts. I'm going to my room, my legs can't stand this anymore, we can continue later,"
"Hey, don't go yet, I want to tell you something." Wess said, in response Duster rolled his eyes, now what kind of senseless torture he was going to get. "I'm glad you are back son," Wess said with a smirk on his face "I'm proud of you and of your friends, you should pay them a visit to,"
There was silence in the room, the lasts words pointed to a priceless father-son moment but not… "Are you okay?" Duster asked with sincerely which made Wess angry and his eyes twitching "Yes I am, but you won't be now that we will continue dancing!"
