~Kira's School~

"Sure, there's nothing to worry about. Oh, they're close by, but our nation's neutral. Can't see Orb turning into a war zone," Tolle said.

Miriallia raised an eyebrow at her boyfriend, "Really? $20 says Orb does become a war zone."

"Deal!"

As Kira watched his friends shake on it, he sighed. This did not bode well.

~Kira's Flashback~

"The PLANTS and Earth will see eye to eye. There will be no war," Athrun said, handing Birdie to Kira.

"$20 says there will be," Kira said challengingly.

"Really? We're seriously betting on whether or not a war will start?"

"Unless you're chicken!" Kira proceeded to make chicken sounds at Athrun. Birdie helped.

"I AM NOT A CHICKEN," sputtered Athrun. "Birdie, how could you betray me like this? I sure hope this isn't foreshadowing how Kira will betray me in the future…" Kira and Birdie continued making chicken sounds until Athrun finally gave in screaming, "Alright, alright! Deal!"

"Pleasure doing business with you," Kira said, shaking Athrun's hand.

"Anyways, the evacuation doesn't mean a thing. You'll join me later at the PLANTS, right Kira?"

"Ha, no," said Kira, running away. "Thanks for the bird!"

~At the Professor's Lab~

"What's this all about?" Sai asked a passing person.

"I don't know," said the passing person Sai asked. The person behind was more helpful.

"We're under attack by ZAFT! Some of their mobile suits have entered the colony!"

"Ha! I win! You owe me $20!" Miriallia turned to Tolle, holding her hand out.

"Is this really the time?" Tolle asked disbelievingly.

"Yup. One of us could die and I want my money!"

"Fine," he sighed, handing over $20.

~Place Mobile Suits Are Made~

"Athrun?" Kira asked in surprise.

"Kira?" Athrun said, shocked with his knife still poised to kill the two people before him. "Gotta say, I was not expecting this…"

"Me neither…Long time no see."

"Yeah, haven't seen you since I gave you the bird and you ran away."

"Right…So, how've you been?"

"Well, you know, I got dragged into the war after the whole "Junius Seven" thing-"

"Wait, wait, wait! That totally reminds me; you owe me $20," Kira said accusingly. Athrun stared at him.

"Well, I mean, I didn't actually bring my wallet with me…I didn't exactly think I would need it…"

"Okay, this is getting ridiculous," said Murrue Ramius, raising her gun and shooting at the ZAFT soldier.

"Hey, watch it, that guy owes me money!" Kira exclaimed.
