(A/N: Sorry this took so looong! I've been very busy considering this is my school break… And I'm not really into 9 anymore, so all inspiration has gone… Oh and I really should've mentioned this before, but the movie is set several months after the film ends, so 7 and 9 have been slowly getting closer together, and it's been kinda obvious they like each other, which is why the twins aren't really surprised that 9 and 7 are in a relationship. Loooong sentence.)
Suck it losers! – Prussia,
Chapter 6 –
4 yawned and stretched, sitting up. She poked her brother in the stomach. 3 Yawned and stretched, sitting up. The both signed 'Good Morning!' to each other, before noticing 9 and 7, still sleeping heavily, curled up together. 9 was drooling slightly. 4 raised her eyebrows at 3 questioningly, who shrugged. The sun was already up, so the twins decided it was high time that everyone was awake. They had formed a plan to wake 7 and 9 up quickly. It had started when 4 had (accidently) found out how to use the intercom speaker. Then while looking around for supplies they had found a silver device (with a picture of an apple on the back) that apparently played music when buttons were pressed. They had found the perfect song to use as a wakeup call, (although there wasn't any singing in the first part…) They would play it into the microphone, and wake up the two adults.
3 pressed down the red button next to the cash register, and pushed the button on the purple music player. The song began playing out of the speakers scattered around the store.
'Look aliiive, Sunshine…'
9 stirred but didn't open his eyes. 7 rolled over, blinking blearily.
'1 0 9 in the sky but the pigs won't quit!'
9 sat up, wiping the drool off of his face with his sleeve. 7 yawned and stood up.
'You're here with me, Doctor Death Defying,'
"What's that noise?" 9 asked, looking around,
'I'll be your surgeon, your proctor, your helicopter,'
"I have no idea." 7 replied, instantly alert, "Where's it coming from?"
'Pumpin' out the slaughtermatic sounds to keep you live!'
9 pointed at the vacant bed next to them. "It could be the twins,"
'A system failure for the masses, antimatter for the master plan!'
They quickly sought out one of the speakers attached to the wall, where the music was loudest,
'Louder than God's revolver and twice as shiny,'
"That's gotta be the twins, they discovered that ridiculous intercom yesterday after all," 7 laughed, shaking her head. "We should go and find them,"
'This one's for all you rock and rollers, all you crash queens and motor babies.'
9 walked down the motionless flat stairs, while 7 slid down the banister. The twins music player switched to the next song, that followed on from the first one.
'Listen up! The future is bulletproof, the aftermath is secondary!'
7 spotted the twins first, standing by the till, holding some kind of purple rectangle in front of a microphone, grinning and bobbing up and down to the beat.
'It's time to do it now and do it loud!'
They cracked up with silent laughter when they saw 9 and 7 walking towards, looking rather bedraggled.
'Killjoys, make some noise!'
"You cheeky little twins!" 7 laughed, the small bubble of panic that had risen inside of her vanishing.
'Na, na na na, na na na, na na na na na na! Na, na na na, na na na, na na na na na na! Na, na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na na!'
"Could you turn that off?!" 9 yelled at the twins, who had turned the volume of the music up considerably. 4 stuck her tongue out at him, but pressed the 'pause' button. 7 sighed and rubbed her eyes.
"What was the point of that?" 7 asked tiredly, a smile tugging at the corners of her lips.
'Bored. Felt like waking you up. We should go back to the library as soon as possible. We forgot to check the one book that would probably tell us what caused us to turn into humans. That book that we showed you all those months ago, when you wanted to know how we were created, 9, remember? 'Dark Science,' remember?' 3 scribbled on the last page of his notepad. 4 reached into her pocket and handed him another. 7 scowled slightly at the twins reference to 1, (then smiled slightly, remembering how good it felt to have her blade pressed against his throat,) while 9 nodded thoughtfully.
"Then we should eat and head back there!" 9 proclaimed excitedly. Then his face fell in realization. "We… we have to walk all the way back there?" 4 nodded solemnly, poker faced. "NOOOO!"
The four stitchpunks/humans had never really noticed the heat before then, but after finishing an interesting breakfast of stale bread, half-melted chocolate and ice-lollies, they noticed the sweat dripping down their backs, (Ew.)
"We should change our clothes," 7 thought out loud, "They're dusty, sweaty, and it's boiling hot anyway." The others nodded in agreement, crunching away the remains of their ice-lollies. "There's probably some summer-wear in the clothes section over there," 7 pointed in the general direction of the changing rooms. Throwing the remains of their breakfast over their shoulders, everyone got up and headed off.
(Unfortunately, the author was too lazy to write the next passage, so we'll just skip to the part when our heroes have chosen some clothes to wear, have tried them on, and are meeting back up.)
The twins were the first to appear out of their changing rooms, wearing matching tartan red T-shirts. 3 was wearing denim shorts, his chestnut brown hair brushed but ruffled, and 4 was wearing a denim skirt, her chestnut brown hair let out of its bunches and brushed Carefully. They admired each other happily for a moment or two, before running off to examine and explore the changing room area. 9 was the second to finish getting into his new change of clothes. He was simply wearing a T-shirt the colour of mud and grey jogging bottoms. The twins both noticed that his hair was un-brushed and un-styled, but decided it was to tangled to even bother. 9 smiled when he saw the twins.
"Cute matching outfits!" He commented happily, (or maybe he was just happy to be wearing something clean… We'll never know.) They only had to wait for a few moments before 7 emerged from her stall, wearing khaki green shorts and a lavender purple vest top, her mouse brown hair tied into a high ponytail. 9's jaw nearly hit the floor when he saw her, causing the twins to nearly die laughing.
"You look…" 9 began, pausing momentarily to think of a word, "Radiant…"
"You look fine too!" 7 laughed, "You too twins!" 4 twirled in a circle, showing of her outfit from all sides. 3 rolled his eyes.
'Let's go, we could be back to normal by the end of the day, if we hurry." 3 wrote in his notepad. 9 grunted with annoyance. 7 punched his shoulder lightly. He chuckled and gave her a soft kiss on the cheek, smiling.
After gathering the remaining food, (a couple of slices of bread and two bottles of water,) and leaving behind everything else, the four set off for the library.
To Be Continued…
