Your name is Eridan Ampora and you are enraged.
You are angry beyond all possible belief. You have never been so angry before in your entire life, nor do you think you'll ever experience this kind of anger ever again. You hate the world and everyone in it. You want them all to die a slow and painful death. You want to be there to see the distressed look on each and everyone of their faces when their last breath is taken away from them.
You are Eridan Ampora, and you think you have found your kismesis.
You have always sort of disliked him. He was constantly annoying you about the stupidest of things. Of course you did the exact same thing, but that was just the way your relationship went.
You met him one of the times you decided to leave your island and go torture some of the landdwellers. Most of the time you just wandered around and did nothing, but that was always your excuse for your lusus.
This time was no different.
You were wandering aimlessly, staring at nothing in particular, when a rock hit the back of your head.
You whipped around to see a mustardblood standing a few feet away from you. He had a hand on his hip, rocks floating above his other, and looked like a fucking smug asshole. He wanted to know what you were doing there. Apparently you wandered onto his 'turf' or something else that you were sure was fucking stupid, you weren't really paying attention to that part. Actually, you weren't paying any attention to that part. You were too distracted by his horribly annoying lisp. The two giant teeth that stuck out of his moth enabling him from speaking properly, the way his split tongue stuck out of his mouth whenever he said a word with the letter 's' in it. It annoyed the fuck out of you.
After he had stopped talking he just stared at you expectanly.
You stared back at him with a blank look.
"I wwas just leavvin." He actually cringed at your words. Not the words themselves, but at your stupid wavy accent.
Similarity number one, you both hate each others' voices.
You left after that, not caring at all about that guy. You thought you'd never have to see him ever again.
But you were wrong.
The next time you ventured over to that place, there he was, throwing rocks again.
"II thought II told you two 2tay away from here!"
"Wwell I'm just goin to havve to trust you on that one, cause I wwasn't listenin to anyfin you said." That only succeeded in pissing him off even more than he was before. You smirked in silent victory. Just then he chucked another rock at your head, with more force that time.
"Who even are you?" he practically screamed at you.
You sat up rubbing the side of your head. "Eridan. And you?" You smirked.
"That2 none of your goddamn buisne22!" You simply sighed. "Now get out of here before II ba2h your head iin!"
"I reely don't sea the problem here, I wasn't doin anyfin wwrong."
"The fact that you're here ii2 the fuckiing problem." He crossed his arms and practically stuck his nose in the air.
"That didn't givve me any reason to your hivve nearby or somefin?"
"No, but my friiend2' ii2. And II'd rather a fuckiing 2eadweller liike you not go near her."
Suddenly everything clicked into place. You smirked at the mustardblood. "Oh, I get it, you don't wwant anyone stealin your girlfriend. Wwell I ashore you, I wwould nevver go out with a landdwweller, so you can stop wworryin." You laid back down, your hands clasped behind your head.
Another rock practically sent a shockwave through your skull. Ok, that really hurt. You bolted upward and glared at this kid. "Wwhat the fuck is your problem!"
"Riight now, you." He glared back at you through his dual colored glasses.
For a while you were just glaring at each other, when a rustblooded girl walked over to you both.
"Sollux, what's taking you so long? Oh!" She saw you sitting in the grass and looked at you confused. "Um, hello?"
You smirked. "Hey."
"Eridan Ampora." Your smirk lost its cockyness anf faded into a small smile.
"Oh, well I'm Aradia, nice to meet you. But if you don't mind I have things I need to take care of with Sollux, so we'll be going now." She smiled at you. Damn she was adorable when she smiled.
Aradia knocked the rocks out of Sollux's hand and dragged him back to her hive.
"Goodbye you twwo," you yell after them in a very cheerful tone. Ok, that was just to annoy that 'Sollux' kid, but whatever.
Aradia turned around and waved good-bye and then they were gone.
You laid back down and stared at the sky.
That went well.
For the next few weeks you had dropped by now and then. You and Sollux would always fight, either verbally or physically. Aradia always tried to stop you two. She would win for the most part, but occasionally, you would get the best of her and fight it out.
You weren't exactly sure if it was black feeling you were developing, or if you just wanted him dead, but after what just recently happened, you were possitive of what they were.
You were dueling in the fields nearby Aradia's respiteblock as usual when Sollux did something vial, even for him. It was unforgivable, unacceptable, so heartless that all of the hatred you had stored up, that you directed at other, all of it, was redirected toward him so fast you thought it would pierce through him like a lance.
He took your scarf.
Using his psionics, he yanked your scarf off of your neck and pulled it toward himself.
"Givve that back!" You snarled and spat every possible profanity you could think of at Sollux.
He could tell he hit a sore spot. "Oh? You want thii2 back?" He grabbed it out if the air and held it at the middle in his hands.
"Yes I fuckin wwant it back you son of a bitch!" You were getting extremely angry, and it was showing.
"Hmm? What wa2 that? II couldn't hear you!" He gripped it harder and pointed his hands in opposite directions.
You stared in horror. "Don't you fuckin dare Captor!" Your teeth were bared, showing every fang you have, even the back row decided to appear.
"Don't what? II have no iidea what you're talkiing about!" He tugged at the fabric, breaking a few threads.
"NO!" Your eyes went as wide as possible and you ran toward Sollux.
"Ye2!" He smiled evily and ripped even more of the plush fabric.
You practically shreiked in anger and pounced on Sollux, your fingers wrapped around his skinny neck, squeezing with all the strenght they had.
He struggled for a moment, and then ripped you off of him, suspending you in mid-air as he slowly tore your scarf clean through, dropping the two halves to the ground.
You stopped moving, and stared wide-eyed. He let go of his hold on you and dropped you to the ground. You simply scrambled for your scarf and picked up the two halves. You... really had nothing to say, you just stared in complete and utter horror.
Sollux stood there for a moment, a look of triumph painted across his face before walking back to Aradia's hive.
She walked over to you and knelt down.
"Eridan? Are you okay?"
Small beads of purple crawled out of the corners of your eyes. "No, I- I'm fine..." You couldn't help but start to tremble. The tears spilled over and you started to sniffle. "I-its fine..." You slowly stood up and turned to go home.
Aradia turned toward you. "I could sew it back up for you if you want," She really didn't want to see you like this.
"Are you good at it?" you asked.
"Well, I think I am." She looked at you slightly hurt, but not that much.
"That wwould be nice."
You walked back to her hive and left right after it was fixed
Now you are sitting in your room, staring at the stitching, angry as fuck.
It isn't horrible, a little sloppy at first, but once she had gotten the hang of it it became neater. You run your thumb up and down the thread over and over. The fact that Sollux would even do that still hadn't worn off.
That scarf is very important to you. Your lusus gave you it when you were just a grub. Its soft plushness so comfortable to roll around in. And he just ripped it!
Even though you do have black feelings for him, that was just too much.
You sigh and set your scarf down on your desk. You strip yourself of all clothing and crawl into your recuperacoon. The slime quickly warms up against your skin. Thoughts of the day come flooding through your mind as you drift off.
Your name is Eridan Ampora, and you can't help but wonder if Sollux hates you the way you hate him.
