"You're such a dumbass, you know that! I'm not your bank, I'm not your mom, so stop being a lazy idiot and get a job!" The eighteen year old groaned, as his girlfriend continued the throw insults. She always did this, though no one could blame her. After all the boy had no job, and wasn't doing anything with his life, though his girlfriend never had anything good to say about him.
Maybe it was the six year difference in age, that probably the reason why she was so hard on him. At least that is what he thought, after all he hadn't done anything wrong.
"You may not be any of those things, but you are annoying." The earthbender slumped his shoulders as he gave a reply that he really wasn't in a position to give.
"GA, it's like you want to be punched in the face, seriously act your age, and if you can't at least act a little more like me!" The black haired woman crossed her arms, before letting turning her eye at the small clock. It seemed like it was almost time for work and she had little time for his childish games.
"Listen dumbass, go find a job or something, and I mean today. If you don't then don't even bother coming back idiot," The woman turned away before walking towards the entrance of the rather large apartment, though she stopped before going through.
"And if you comeback here before finding a job...I'll make you pay dearly," It wasn't a threat it was a promise.
She shut the door as the earthbender sighed.
The boy known as Lǎnduò just finished his weekly argument with his girlfriend Jǐnzhāng, it was a tiring ritual that the two lovers went through, though even he had to wonder how long their lover status would last. "Perhaps I should have dated a girl that would take care of me,"
"Gah, jobs are just so boring though..." Landuo slumped down on an empty chair, before he realized that he was suppose to visit a friend.
He only grumbled, if he just stay in the apartment all day then Jinzhang would unleash her maximum bitchyness on him. He should at least pretend to look for a job, to calm the unavoidable rage the twenty four year old beast would bring.
"Bah, why did I have to date an older girl, maybe someone around my age would have been better..."
Landuo thought for a moment before shaking his head.
For all her yelling and screaming she did Jinzhang had a good heart, after all she was letting him stay with her for free, even when she said money was tight. And above all she was attractive, a woman that was attractive and willing to take care of him was something special.
Actually he was starting to feel kind of bad for being a lazy ass, and despite his actions he really did care for his girlfriend.
"Bah, even so I won't ever get a job, working is boring anyway!" With those words he left the apartment, knowing he probably wouldn't be returning to a warm welcome.
"I can't believe it totally took you so long to get here, don't you realize it's amazingly totally rude to keep a lady waiting." Once again the Earthbender groaned not paying attention to the blue eyed girl in front of him.
They were in republic city alright, the people passing them. The sounds of Satomobiles racing by, while loud it was also nice to realize you were apart of something much bigger, the two people that were carrying a conversation sat at a small table away from everyone else. The air was rather chilly, no doubt winter was near
"Helloooo, earth to Landuo, don't you realize that I'm totally talking to you, whatever your problem is, it can wait because I have massive crisis on my hands!"
The girl in question that was hounding the young man was named Qiǎn, probably one of the most attractive girls in his age range, she is also loaded with money as well. However, she was probably the most shallow person and idiotic person that one could ever meet, she's a disappointment from the moment she opens her mouth, which is unfortunate since it's very rarely closed. Despite this, she wasn't all bad, and she does care for her friends, or rather friend since Landuo was her only one.
"Actually, me and Qian known each other since we were kids." The earthbender then looked at dark skinned girl.
It was kind of funny, she was actually adopted when she was two. It was pretty obvious where she was from given her eye color, the only person who didn't know she was adopted was Qian herself. Then again she was a complete idiot.
"Yeah, well I have my fair share of problems as well." Landuo groaned as the girl frowned.
"No, it totally isn't, poor people problems aren't problems! They are just things that poor people complain about, I have to totally find some kind of date for this massive party I've been invited to, don't you totally know that the Avatar will be there. As well as the those hotties that hang around her."
Party...Landuo did remember that they were throwing a party for the events that transpired three months ago, with Avatar Korra defeating Amon and everything.
"Well, that is just silly, why do you need to go with someone? Why not go by yourself?" Landuo asked a stupid question that deserved a stupid answer. Never fear however, he got the answer that he so very deserved.
"Because men get jealous when they see pretty girls with other men. It's science and stuff, I like totally read it in a book, amazing I know someone like me reading." There was no logic behind what she said, just a rambling of a teenage girl. It seemed that every time Landuo started to question why he didn't date girls his own age Qian would remind him why. And so, Qian may be Landuo's best friend, but she was not the kind of person he would date, unless he was in mortal danger.
"Well, since you obviously are being totally whiny about it. Tell me about your tiny boring problem," Qian frowned as, as Landuo began explaining his sad, sad story.
"Hmmm, it totally seems to be you need to stop being poor, if you stop being poor then you can pay back your girlfriend. Really, must I explain everything to you?" Landuo slumped his shoulders, he wanted to explain to Qian that he didn't have rich parents. He was just a normal guy that didn't really have anything amazing about himself.
"I can't just get rich in an instant Qian, people just don't hand out money without some sort of trade." Qian rolled her eyes, as she dug her hand into her rather expensive purse, what she took out was a large lump of money. It seemed there was about two-thousand yuans in the bundle as Landuo simply blinked, as Qian handed him the money.
"Qian...I can't take all of this..." Landuo wasn't above taking money from people he knew, but two-thousand seemed a little much, even by his standards.
"Don't me silly, I'm totally okay with being your sugar momma, like if I was a poor loser. I would totally want you to be my sugar daddy,"
Landuo laughed nervously at the terms, it seemed that Qian was still ignorant of the meaning of those words. In the end however, Qian had her own way of helping people. Even if she really wasn't good at anything of substance.
"Now, if you totally excuse me, I've got to find myself a date like pronto!" The blue eyed girl jumped up from her seat, before vanishing into the sea of people.
"Well, at least I can keep Jǐnzhāng quite for a few weeks, though she'll probably wonder how I got the money."
Landuo rubbed his head, thinking about all the excuses he could make.
"Bah, I'll just say that I'm going to work every morning while I do something else. Then after two weeks I'll just say that I lost my job,"It wasn't the best plan, but it was the only plan he could think off, but he still couldn't go home yet not until dark. If he was home when she got home she would just be more suspicious.
The boy simply grumbled as he left his seat, having to walk around for hours doing nothing was a pain in the ass...but then again.
Landuo looked at the wad of cash.
"I'm sure it's okay if I spend a little bit...maybe one-hundred?"
This wasn't a good idea, but then again Landuo wasn't very smart, nor does he really have any responsibility, if it was up to him everything would remain frozen, at least in his life.
The moon was gleaming as Landuo slowly opened the door, as if he was a burglar sneaking into his own apartment. He stayed out a little too late for his own good, no doubt Jǐnzhāng thought he was wasting his time goofing off, though she was probably right.
"Shit, why is it so dark in here? Jǐnzhāng never go's to bed this early, maybe she's planning something...make up sex?"
Landuo frowned at the idea, last time that happened there was a lot of blood. On his end of course, that was probably what made his girlfriend rather dangerous.
"L-listen Jinzhang, I'm sorry I'm late and everything, but I got a job!"
No response, now he was getting worried. Jǐnzhāng wouldn't just go someplace without telling him, unless something important came up...but this brought up another point. "I didn't cut off the lights when I left this morning." Landuo whispered under his breath as he entered the kitchen.
If there was a note, it would be in this room, Landuo examined the cabinets before setting his sights on the main table. A small piece of paper was perfectly place in the middle of the furniture as Landuo sighed with relief.
No doubt whatever was happening would be told through this paper.
He picked it up, what was on it was rather shocking.
Dear, whoever this may concern.
We have kidnapped Asami Sato, you know your girlfriend, lol
Anyway, if you want to see her again, you totally have to bring us some money dude, like soon or later. Or we'll mess her up good.
Love, the Triple Triad.
PS we removed the threat from our name, it was tacky and stuff.
Landuo simply blinked, the sheer amount of failure in a single piece of paper was astounding. That however wasn't the only reason, "Who the heck is Asami Sato?"
