The Injustice Of Jokes


It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the birds were singing…

"Maxwell!"

…and Duo Maxwell was being his usual prankster self.

"Aw, c'mon, 'Fei, it was only a joke!" the self-proclaimed Shinigami defended his actions as he sprinted across the backyard of Quatre's mansion.

"I will not stand for this injustice!" Wufei roared, chasing Duo over benches, around trees and bushes and across the lawn towards the nearby forest. He was determined to catch his prey before Duo reached said stand of trees, because he knew how good Duo was at hiding. If the braided baka made it to the safety the foliage provided, he could hide – hell, live – there for an indefinite amount of time.

And he was not going to let Duo get away with this…this…

Travesty.

He was Chang Wufei, of the Dragon Clan. He was strong, he was quick, he delivered defeat to his enemies by dealing them swift justice. He fought for the Preventers against the rogue remnants of White Fang, he piloted Shenlong…

And he could do none of that with neon pink hair.

"MAXWELL!!"

Duo let out an, "Eep!" and ran even faster. Maybe celebrating April Fool's Day hadn't been such a good idea…
