A/N: This is a bit longer than the last chapter. I may have went a bit overboard with the 'elevator arc'. It was fun to imagine though. Also, an aside to novel readers, Worst is probably the best thing to happen to the To Aru series since Biri-Biri. Worst is best.
Seeing Last Order pouting, Misaka Worst asked a natural question.
"'Misaka Misaka was made fun of by a subordinate!' says Misaka as Misaka throws a tantrum."
"Oh yeah? Exactly what did they say?"
"'She said, 'It's redundant to say 'Misaka Misaka',' says Misaka,' says Misaka as Misaka remembers."
"'And then Misaka Misaka was imitated and she said, '''Misaka Misaka is redundant,' says Misaka as Misaka imitates,' says Misaka' says Misaka as Misaka tells you exactly what she said."
Two Misaka sisters sat on a bench. A conversation began.
"'Let's talk about 'parents',' Misaka says, opening up a can of worms."
"'If you think about it, wouldn't it be reasonable to classify Onee-sama as 'mother'? This seems like the natural fit... however, Misaka is having trouble figuring out who best qualifies as 'father',' Misaka says as she relays her recent struggles."
"'How about 'that boy'?' Misaka suggests while performing a fist-to-palm action."
The image of a 'spiky-haired boy' appeared in both their minds.
"'He's more like a nosy neighbor than a 'father' type person,' says Misaka, rejecting the thought outright."
The image manages to say 'fukou da!' before disintegrating out of existence.
The two Misaka sisters were still engaged in enthralling conversation.
"'If not 'him', is there anyone else who qualifies?' Misaka asks, scratching her head."
In a certain apartment...
A certain someone's face was covered in black marker drawings.
"You shitty brat! I'll fucking rip your head off!"
"'You don't understand Misaka Misaka's artistic genius!' says Misaka as Misaka makes a clean getaway!"
Back at the bench...
"'Did you think of someone?' Misaka asks."
Let's take a look at Misaka 20,000.
"'Nice to meet you,' Misaka says, taking a bow."
Comparing the Level 6 Shift project to an RPG, one could call her the final boss...
And even thinking about that number! 20,000! You would think that she's extremely powerful!
"'Ah... There's really nothing special about me...' Misaka apologizes."
But! In reality...! She is actually the mid-boss!
"'Eh?-! Did Misaka's worth suddenly go down?-!' Misaka stammers in bewilderment!"
Worst suddenly appeared behind her.
"Your adventure has only just begun!"
Elevator Ride From Hell
After running various errands, Misaka 20,000 was riding down an elevator. Before the doors could close, she heard someone call out.
"W-Waaait! Hold the door!"
Misaka Mikoto got inside just in time. She sighed.
"Thanks for holding the elevator. I don't know what I would've done if you hadn't."
"'You would have had to wait 45 to 80 seconds for the elevator to come back up,' Misaka answers."
They started going down the elevator in complete silence.
Misaka Mikoto felt like dying.
Misaka Mikoto and Misaka 20,000 were still riding down the elevator.
"Umm, if you need any advice from you're Onee-chan, I'd be happ-"
"'Misaka currently does not need advice,' Misaka answers."
'At least give me a chance..!'
Worst Case Scenerio
Still inside the elevator, Misaka Mikoto thought to herself.
'I can't leave things as they are! I have to say something that will leave a positive impression!'
The elevator stopped.
The doors opened. Worst and Last Order walked inside.
'Wait, wait a second. Now calm down. Even though they may look a little different, these guys are just more Sisters based off of my own DNA...off of my own... DNA...'
Misaka Mikoto's glance shifted to a region of Worst's body that seemed extremely different from herself.
'Eh?-! I'm still the older sister, right?-! I'm still the older sister, right?-! Right?-!'
'Just who are these people?'
As Misaka Mikoto was thinking, Last Order turned her head to look at her.
However, Worst turned her head back to the front.
'I'm being ignored?-!'
Whole New Level
'That's it! I have to say something! I've got to make my presence known!'
As Misaka Mikoto pumped herself up, the elevator stopped once again.
The doors opened. Accelerator hobbled in.
'Why is this happening to meeeeeeeee?-!'
While Misaka Mikoto was mentally breaking down in the back of the elevator, Accelerator made small talk with Misaka 20,000.
"Hey, what's you're serial number?"
"'...20,000', Misaka reluctantly replies."
"Oh, is that so..."
Accelerator went on to say something lame.
"You know how I was supposed to kill you last?"
The sister nodded.
"Tree diagram lied."
"'Is that supposed to be a reference to something?' Misaka asks, unfamiliar with 80s action flicks."
Once hitting ground floor, Accelerator, Worst, and Last Order went on their way home. Before leaving as well, Misaka 20,000 noticed something back in the elevator.
"'Are you feeling okay?' Misaka inquires."
Misaka Mikoto had her head leaned up against the wall of the elevator. It seemed like she was still recovering from the awkward situation.
"I'm fine, I think I just need to-"
Before she finished her sentence, the elevator doors closed. Going up...
