Here's Part II!
How could he? How could Eddie pull these pranks on us, on his own friends?
"Eddie, why would you prank us like that?" I asked, following my friend who is walking around in shame.
"Do you know what you did to me?" Kim, out of the whole gang, seems to be the maddest, which seems like her.
She stomped her way in front of me, "That paper was so sticky, I lost four freckles and half an eyebrow."
I stood behind her and nodded, "It wasn't pretty."
"Of course it wasn't," she glared at me over her shoulder, "You ripped them off."
"Hey, you were stuck!" I defended.
"And a clown keeps following me around asking me where I get my hair done," Thank you Jerry for saving the fight.
"I didn't want to," Eddie whined, "Truman's been blackmailing me."
"How's he blackmailing you?" Milton asked.
"Truman's father owns the security company that watches the mall," Kim rested her elbow on my shoulder and my right arm wrapped around her waist as we listened. I'm glad she wasn't that mad at me.
"So?" Jerry said.
"One night, Rudy let me stay late in the dojo to work on some moves. The thing is I wasn't working on karate moves," Eddie continued to explain on to how he was dancing with a dummy and when he was finished, made out with it.
"Truman saw everything from his father's office. He put it on a flash drive and unless I do whatever he says, he's gonna put it on the internet," Eddie finished. "I'm sorry, guys."
"It's okay, Eddie," I said. "He's not gonna get away with it."
"Truman's gonna be sorry he messed with us," Milton sat down next to Eddie.
"When you poke a bear, do you know what happens?" Milton asked Eddie but he shook his head so he turned to Kim and me, "Seriously, does anybody know?"
We shook our heads and went into the locker rooms to change for tonight's mission.
(Milton and Kim are going to be switching jobs! So Kim's going to be unlocking the safe with Milton's glasses and Milton will be distracting Joan)
"Okay, our mission is to get into the security office and grab the flash drive out of the safe," I said as I unrolled the map of the mall.
"Let's go over the plan one more time," I said.
"I'll get Truman out of the office by taking him to the parking lot and letting him shoot paintballs at me," Eddie started.
"You think he'll go for it?" Kim asked.
"I'm pretty sure," Eddie showed us his black shirt covered in paint.
"Once we're inside, I'll disarm the security system," I said.
"I'll crack the safe," Kim added.
"Out in the courtyard, I'll distract the guard," Milton said.
"And I'll distract the guard's dog," Jerry finished.
I dropped my head in complete unbelievement, "How are you gonna distract the dog?" I asked.
"See, I don't know if you know this about me, but I was partially raised by wolves."
"That actually explains a lot," Kim said, not believing this too.
"Check it," Jerry howled and got a response.
Kim hit my shoulder and mouthed, 'Did you hear that?'
"Those are my peeps," Jerry finished, proud.
"Alright, let's go," I put my hand over the map, "Wasabi?"
The gang followed my lead, "Wasabi!"
I silently thanked Milton after he was able to get Joan breathing like a dog. She has got to be the worst security guard ever. Jerry also successfully distracted the dog, making Kim and me easily slip through.
"Wow, Military-Grade security lasers," Kim pointed out while crossing her arms.
"Okay, now that I did not expect," I said, a little scared.
"Jack, you could do this," Kim looked at me but I wasn't listening.
I can't do this! There is no way! One little mistake and the whole gang's in trouble, maybe even the dojo is gonna close down.
"Earth to Jack! Jack!" Kim grabbed my chin and spun my face around to look at her, "You can do this. Everybody's counting on you."
"I don't know," I said, unsure.
The next action was so unexpecting.
Kim leaned up and kissed me. Not on the cheek but the lips.
Of course I was surprised but I loved it. Sparks flew everywhere and for a minute, it was just Kim and me.
We finally separated for air and I looked at the security lasers again.
"So you can do this?" she smirked.
"Yep!" I quickly jumped and leapt over laser beams like a spy.
Finally I reached the kill switch and disarmed the security. Kim ran over happily and kissed me on the cheek, "See nothing to it."
I smiled and opened the door marked 'Security.'
"There it is!" Kim said but I knew something was wrong.
"No, no, no!" I blocked her. "There's weight sensors in the carpet. We can't walk on the floor."
"Well, what do we do?" Kim asked.
I looked at the doorframe and used that as support. I easily lifted myself onto the desk. I offered Kim a hand and she gratefully came up beside me.
"Okay, Milton's glasses will allow me to be able to see the fingerprints for the code," Kim said as she put them on. "Uh, Jack?"
I was too busy undoing my black belt, "Hmm?"
"How do we get across the office?" she finished.
"I'm already on to it," I threw the black belt across a metal bar. "I'll carry you across, are you ready honey?"
"Oh so now we're using nicknames," she crossed her arms.
"Yep," I winked and kissed her cheek.
"Once across you open that safe and get the flash drive," I finished.
Kim turned around and hugged my waist as I got ready to swing. I jumped and quickly wrapped my legs around her waist, allowing her some space to be able to turn around to see the code. It took about three swings before Kim was ready.
"All right," she said.
First swing, "Truman has … four brothers."
Second swing, "He's claimed to have kissed seven girls."
I looked down at her weirdly.
"This is a lie because considering four out of seven of them were me."
Third swing, "And something with three," she was then able to open the safe and grab the drive.
"Yes! Yes, you did it," I said.
"Okay, now sweetie?" Kim started.
"Hmm?" I looked down and she looked up.
"How do we get down?" she asked.
"That's a very good question," I answered.
We finally landed on the table and we closed the door. Kim turned to me and wrapped her arms around my neck and I returned her embrace.
"See, mission complete," she said and kissed me.
"Yeah, mission complete," and I kissed her back.
"Hey, hey," I whispered to Jerry, "We've got the flash drive. Let's go."
Kim, who was holding my hand, lifted it for him to see but he seemed too distracted with the dog to know.
Milton saw and followed us suit.
"Okay, I think Eddie's done with his part and the plan would all work out," Kim said.
"Yep," Milton said while taking off the sweatband. "You two seem a little closer than usual."
"Why would you say that?" Kim's voice went up a few octaves.
"Holy Christmas nuts!" Milton yelled. "You guys kissed! You guys kissed!"
I felt myself blushed and Kim rolled her eyes.
"Wait a minute, you guys kissed and I missed it," Milton pouted.
"Well, from now on," I smirked. "You'll be seeing it a lot more."
Eddie came in just in time with a flash drive, "Okay, Truman's going to be here in three, two, and one."
"Breaking into my father's office?!" just on time. "You guys are in so much trouble!"
"We'll take whatever comes, but we had to help a friend out," we looked at Eddie who nodded.
"I want that flash drive and I want it right now!" Truman's getting mad.
"All right, all right, we'll give it back," I said putting my hands up in mock defeat, "But first we've got another video we want you to see."
I pointed to Eddie who was setting it up.
"What are you talking about?" Truman asked as he bent down and watched his whole tantrum with utter disbelief.
"Yup, I got your whole crybaby freak out," Eddie said between laughs.
"Doesn't feel so good when it's you, does it, Truman?" I said.
"If that thing gets out, my life will be over!" he said. "I'll be known as Tantrum Boy."
I exchanged looks with Eddie.
"Please tell me you won't post that video," Truman pleaded.
"We're not going to post it," Kim said. "We're not like you, Truman."
"Hey, how about a deal?" I asked. "We destroy both videos and you never mess with us again, deal?"
"Deal," he shook my hand. "Just delete it, please. Please!"
Eddie clicked some buttons and deleted the video.
"You know I only—I only melted down like that because I knew the camera was there," Truman chuckled. "I was just putting on a show."
"Well, show's over," Eddie stood up. "When you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us. Bye, Truman."
"Bye Eddie," he looked down then quickly asked, "Maybe next week we can go paintball—"
"Get out," Eddie said.
I pointed at the door and he sulked his way out.
"Eddie, remember what you just told Truman, if you're in trouble, we'll always be there for you," I told him.
"Got it," he pounded and looked at Kim and then back to me. "Thanks guys."
"Hey so I was looking through some of the videos while I was in the office and saw some very interesting ones," Eddie raised an eyebrow, "You two finally kissed."
"Wait you caught that on tape?" I asked.
"Yep!" Eddie turned to Milton and told him to follow his lead, "'Oh Kimmy, I need a kiss to be able to do this.'"
"'Of course!'" Milton followed, "'Anything for you.'"
I started to blush and I could tell Kim's blood is starting to boil.
"Has anyone seen Jerry?" I asked.
The two actors came over and looked at one another, confused.
"Last time I saw him, he was out in the courtyard," Kim answered.
"Maybe he's still out there right now," I opened the door and saw him flirting with a dog.
"Yep, he's still there," I rubbed the back of my neck. "How about we get something to eat?"
"Sounds good," Milton and Eddie skipped into the locker rooms.
"You know they are the worst actors ever," Kim said.
"True," I nodded.
"So where are we going to eat?" she asked.
"We are going to Circus Burger," I smiled.
"What about Milton and Eddie?"
"They'll figure it out," I grabbed and ran outside and straight into the restaurant.
I know, bad ending but hey, Jack and Kim got their first and second kiss!
Love ya all!
