Stella: So, this plot bunny has been bouncing around in my head for awhile. I was gonna put this as a bonus chapter in my other story, Innocent Heart, but I decided not to. This story shouldn't be any longer than five chapters though.
Lavi: And didn't you say you weren't gonna post stories or update anything until after school started?
Stella: ...yeah, this is awkward. Especially since I left a small notice thingy on my profile. But this is the last one, I swear!
Rose: Finished your summer reading?
Stella: ...uhh, anyways. Rose is my OC from Innocent Heart. I'm not sure how well this story will flow, but I hope you like it!
"So…you're saying what now?" Allen Walker, the white-haired 15-year-old Exorcist, asked their crazy boss, Komui Lee.
"It's exactly as I said. You are to go and kill the current president of the United States, Mr. Millennium Earl." He told the five teens with a very serious tone, although it was hard to take him seriously while he was spinning in his chair like a little kid.
"But…but…he's the president…of the United States!" Rosalie Hinode, the short, curly haired brunette Exorcist pointed out frantically. "If we kill him…we'll go to jail. No, we'll go to prison!"
Komui waved his hand around playfully and let out a hearty laugh. "Don't worry. You and Allen will only go to juvy. Kanda-kun and Lavi will go to prison." He informed them cheerfully as if there was nothing to worry about.
"What about Lenalee?" Rose gestured over to his little sister, Lenalee Lee, the 16-year-old Chinese Exorcist, who clearly looked annoyed at her old brother's carelessness.
"There's no way I'm letting my precious Lenalee go to a nasty place like that!" He yelled and hugged his sister tightly.
Lenalee pushed him away and gave her brother a serious look. "That's not fair brother. They're family. I have to stick with them through the end."
Lavi, the cheerful 18-year-old redheaded Exorcist, ran a hand through his fiery hair and sighed. "Yeah, Chief. Besides, if we cause any more tension with the United States and their government, we could probably cause a war. And I'm not talking about the secret war we're in now."
"I know that the previous Millennium Earl caused a bit of…trouble back in the…what was it, 18th or 19th century? But anyways, maybe he's a good man now." Rose suggested, pleading for Komui not to go along with this plan.
"Really? You think so?" Komui asked her, an evil smile creeping up on his face. "Well, do you think it was an accident that one his closest superintendents, one from the clan of Noah, came to our League of Branches meeting with a whole horde of akuma?!"
Rose shrank down and huddled behind the tall redhead. "N-no…but…" She sighed and let her shoulders drop. "Maybe if we tell someone, they'll believe us and - "
Lavi gave her a shoulder a reassuring squeeze. "I wish it was that easy. People think that these are those crazy conspiracy theories. Not that many people will be willing to believe us, even if it is the truth."
"It is a conspiracy theory…in a way…" Rose muffled from behind him. "I don't think we get paid enough for this…"
"You're lucky you're getting paid at all." Komui scolded her lightly. "It's not like you have a choice."
"It was just a joke…"
"But Komui is right, in a way." Lenalee piped up. "I mean, we didn't choose to become Exorcist."
They all nodded. It was true. Their path was already set out in front of them because they were accommodators chosen by Innocence; a source of power to help them fight against the akuma created by the Millennium Earl.
"You think if Allen's great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandpa wasn't able to defeat the Millennium Earl those hundreds of years ago, we will?" Rose thought out loud.
"We won't know unless we try, right?" Lavi informed her and gave her one of his signature smiles.
Lenalee nodded in agreement. "He's right. We just have to think positive! If our great ancestors came really close to finally ending the war, well, we'll finish it for them!"
"I'm sure you're missing a lot more 'greats' than that. It's been a few hundred years, after all." Lavi said playfully and everyone (except Kanda) joined in the laughter.
"Okay, we'll go." Allen decided for the rest of them. "I mean, we'll go to the party being held at the White House this weekend and we'll see if he's planning something. But if he's not, we're coming straight back to London, okay?!" He gazed at Komui with a hard look in his silver eyes.
"What? We can't just waltz right in there though, can we?" Lenalee asked curiously, her long green pigtails following her as she turned to her boss/brother.
"Of course not, my Lenalee! That's why I have these invitations for you!" Komui cried out cheerfully and pulled out three invitations.
"Well, gee, that's great and all, but there are five of us here, not three." Lavi pointed out bluntly.
Lenalee looked at her brother and chief unsurely. "Hey, uh, how in the world did you get those?"
Komui gave her a smug grin. "This is the Black Order, after all. We're like what the White House is to the United States."
The teens nodded in unison. "Ahhhhhh…."
"And it did help that one of the Noah has a secret crush on Allen…" Komui added in a rushed voice. Allen's cheeks turned slightly pink and he scowled at Komui.
"Well, read the invitation!" Rose suggested and they all gathered around Allen.
Allen took an invitation and read it aloud, "'Greetings! You've officially been invited to my granddaughter, Road Kamelot's, 14th birthday here at the White House at 7:00 pm sharp. You are allowed to bring one date, but the date must also bring a gift for Road or he/she will not be permitted inside. See you Saturday! – Mr. Millennium Earl'"
"Yes! A date! I call Rosalie-chan!" Lavi called out excitedly and slung an arm around said date.
Rose blushed at the contact and cleared her throat. "That's not the way to ask, you know…"
He looked down at her and went down on one knee as if he were proposing. "Rosalie Hinode, would you do the honor of accompanying me to the party this Saturday as my date?"
Everyone stared at Lavi in complete disbelief and astonishment. Lenalee and Allen sweatdropped and pulled out their phones to take a picture. Since when did he ever become serious about…anything?
Rose stared at him, her jade-green eyes met his single, emerald-green eye. After a few overdramatic hesitant seconds, she nodded. "Y-yes. I'd love to."
Lavi jumped up and fist pumped the air. "Whoop! She said yes!" On a complete impulse, he threw his arms around her tightly and did some sort of happy dance before letting her go and running off. Rose sat there, her red as face as her date's hair, while avoiding any sort of eye contact with anyone.
"More than friends, less than lovers." Lenalee muttered under her breath. She turned to Allen and took a deep breath.
"Yes, Lenalee?" The white haired Exorcist smiled at her softly.
"You'll…go with me, right? To the party?" She began nervously.
"Shouldn't I be the one to ask that?" He asked her sheepishly and rubbed the back of his head.
"Yes, but you're taking a while." She giggled, much to Komui's disapproval.
"Of course I'll go with you, Lenalee."
She smiled and turned to her now crimson-faced brother. "So, what about the other invitation? What do we do with that?"
"Huh? Oh, yeah! Kanda-kun is going with you all, remember?" Komui informed them and pointed to the angry Japanese Exorcist who was glaring at them from the corner of the room.
"Ahhhh….." They all replied at once
"I forgot all about Bakanda!" Allen snickered.
"Same here. Has he been here the whole time?" Rose asked after recovering from her flustered state.
"Shut up. I'm not looking forward to go on this stupid mission one bit." He turned to glare at Komui. "And if this mission gets us sent to prison, I swear, I will cut you to – "
"Okay! Kanda, you should go get ready." Lenalee cut him off before he could finish the rest of his death threat. "We'll be leaving this afternoon so we'll make it to the States in the morning." She smiled at him as he scowled at the rest of the team and stalked out of the door, a dark aura surrounding him the whole time.
Allen nodded. "We should all get ready. Rose, why don't you go tell your date to pack his stuff for our trip?" He added and smirked as he watched Rose's cheeks turn red.
"That geems sood. I-I mean, that seems g-good!" Rose stammered nervously. She was smiling like a lovesick schoolgirl. It was almost embarrassing to watch, but everyone already knew how she felt about that redheaded Exorcist. She just made it a little more…obvious.
"We should start packing too, Lenalee." Allen suggested to his green-haired date and they waved off to Komui before leaving his office.
"Allen, if you do anything to Lenalee, I swear – "
Lenalee slammed the door shut before they could hear what else Komui had to say. "I swear, he takes after Kanda sometimes."
"No one can be as worse as Bakanda." Allen laughed. "So, are you two ready?" He asked his comrades as they walked down the long, dark halls of the Black Order.
"To assassinate the president of the United States?" Rose said in a disbelieving tone.
Lenalee nodded and replied with newfound determination, "Yes. I think we'll have to be."
Rose sighed and twirled her hair around her finger anxiously. "Our first visit to the States and we have to do work."
Allen laughed and gave his two friends a wink and thumbs up. "Well, we're Exorcists after all! Let's show them what we can do!"
They exchanged glances and returned his smile. As if they planned it, the three teens put their hands together and shouted, "Let's go! Team: Assassinate the President!"
Stella: And this is definitely the last thing I'm posting for the summer! Forreals! This is supposed to be more of a humorous story, unlike the other one. And the reason I had Kandax? in the description is because I'm not sure if I should pair him up with someone or not. I don't really have anyone in mind...
Allen: Do your paper.
Lenalee: No buts, Stella-chan!
Stella: *pouts* But...but...Lavi...
Lavi: I'm sorry, but they're right.
Stella: Rosie-chan...*puppy eyes*
Rose: Please don't look at me like that...
Stella: Fine, you guys suck! Anyways, please leave reviews and tell me what you think. I kinda just made this up on a whim. Well, off to do my paper! *grumble grumble*
