"Hm... What's taking Spike so long?" Natalie growled, tapping her foot on the pavement of the laboratory porch. "Jake and him should be here by now!"

"Pft. You humans are so unreliable," a boy with silver hair behind her chuckled. "Don't worry. I can handle this job myself."

Natalie glared at him. "Don't even THINK about it, Jinkun!" the red head scolded just as the boy was about to head off into town. She held him back by the collar of his dark blue coat.

"Ack! You-N-NATALIE!" Jinkun choked, trying to wretch away from her grip, but to no avail. "Let go!"

"Now hold on!" Natalie screeched and forced him into a chair. He pouted at her fiery glare. "Jinkun, you may LOOK like a human now, but you lack the experience of one!"

"Tsk!" Jinkun jumped off the chair to meet her gaze. "If you're the definition of normal, I don't care! Besides, normal human females are kind and gentle. You're like a man in every way!"

He received a well deserved slap. Jinkun cringed at the pain in his pale cheek. "MANNERS! What have I told you before? I'm two years older than you! You call me MISS Natalie! Got it?"

Jinkun only smirked. "No. Getchu!" he shouted suddenly and swung Gotcha Net over Natalie.

"JINKUN!" the teenager screeched before disappearing in a flash of light.

"Haha! Better luck next time, human!" Jinkun smirked to himself and ran off.

A few minutes after the incident, two boys, a red-yellow spike haired one and a blue spike haired one, both came in time to see the fuming Natalie coming out the door.

"Hi, Natalie! Sorry for getting here late!" Spike smiled.

"My apologies, Miss Natalie," Jake bowed. "We got held up in school because Spike got detention."

"How was I supposed to know that was the girls' bathroom? I needed to go REALLY bad!"

Jake rolled his eyes at his friend's excuses and turned to Natalie. "So, where is the 'Jinkun?' We're ready to meet him now."

Natalie suddenly roared in anger, shocking the duo. "N-Natalie?" they asked in fear.

"When I get my hands on that little shrimp, he'll be in for a world of hurt!" she cackled before taking off into town.

"M-M-Miss Natalie...?" Jake silently sobbed, an outstretched hand toward the direction Natalie went.

"Huh. I wonder what happened..." Spike contemplated densely.
