A/N: Plot bunnies galore! ^_^ I'm on a roll! Just so you guys know, Kimiko is the one talking first and Keiko is the one responding. I'm just gonna throw you right into the conversation so don't worry about the leading up to part kay?

Disclaimer: I don't own Xiaolin Showdown. Wish I did. But I don't.

"I use screaming as a tactic…not because I'm scared or anything. I knew that I wouldn't be able to take him on by myself and he had me pinned on the ground. His hand was about my throat, not in a choking kind of way but he was applying enough pressure that I couldn't pull his hand off of me. I knew that if I screamed a scary scream the boys would come running to rescue me. So that's what I did…I screamed."

"That's actually pretty smart."

"Yea, and since I don't normally scream whenever I actually DO scream the boys know there's something up. Though…they think I'm actually scared but nope I'm not. I was just screaming because I knew they would come running. This also eliminates the girl-who-cried-wolf-effect because since I don't do it often they will always come running."

"What did Chase do?"

"Well, as expected, he released me when he saw the boys approaching. Why he had me pinned in the first place I don't know. I wasn't about to let him kidnap me or anything. I seriously doubt that if he just wanted to talk to me he wouldn't have been so aggressive about it."


"It was strange. He was actually pretty surprised that I screamed. I think maybe he thought he scared me."

"Sounds reasonable he would."

"Oh well, it's not like it matters. I don't have to explain myself to him anyway."

"Did Chase do anything else to you that made you react like a girl?"

"…He made me swoon once."


"I don't mean the 'oh he's so handsome, I think I'm gonna swoon' kind of swoon. This was the kind where the dude scares you so bad that instead of emitting a loud scream you faint. I didn't faint but it seriously felt like I was going to. I was even falling backwards and everything. I felt so lightheaded…The look on Chase's face was priceless though."

"What he look like?"

"He-He acted like this has happened before! He even grabbed me about the waist to prevent me from falling on my head!"

"So gentlemanly…"

"I think he just did it out of reflex because he looked really surprised at himself. Or was that look directed at me? I have no idea. I was too busy trying to make sure I didn't faint because I was not about to go unconscious in front of the Prince of Darkness."

"Why do they call him the Prince of Darkness?"

"He just…looks the part."


*cue the awkward silence*

"Anything else?"

"Nope. The guys are getting ready to come back so I don't have much time to talk to you anymore."

"Want me to hang up?"

"Yea…I have stuff to do. Talk to you later kay? Bye."
