Exploding Coke
By Silver Sailor Ganymede

Sometimes Kagura hated the summer holidays. She especially hated them on them days like this, when swimming practice was cancelled and she had nothing whatsoever to do. Her current situation involved sitting on a wall in Tomo's back garden and doing absolutely nothing at all, and Kagura was understandably bored out of her mind.

She took a sip of coke from the bottle she was holding then noticed that Tomo was looking at her with an evil glint in her eye. Kagura felt a shiver of horror run up her spine – what on Earth was Tomo planning now?
Suddenly Kagura decided that she would rather be bored than be subject to whatever crazy scheme Tomo was planning.

"Kaguraaaa," Tomo said in a sing-song voice. "I have an ideeeea!"

Kagura groaned. "What is it now?"

Tomo didn't say anything in reply – she just pulled a pack of mints out of her pocket. She pointed to the mints and then to the coke bottle in Kagura's hand.

"What are you plotting?"

Tomo didn't reply. Instead she asked "Kagura, have you ever put mints in coke?"

Kagura shook her head. "No: why?"

Tomo snickered evilly and snatched the bottle out of Kagura's hand.

"What are you doing?"

"Just look," Tomo replied, then dropped a mint into the bottle.

For a moment nothing happened – then the coke practically exploded as a fountain of the stuff erupted out of the bottle and went all over the garden.

"That was a waste of a perfectly good drink," Kagura muttered, taking the bottle back from Tomo. She was just about to drink what was little left in the bottle when a wasp flew straight into the drink.

Kagura blinked, groaned then poured the coke on the floor. Tomo exploded with laughter.

"That was great timing!"

"Oh shut up."
