IM-Practical Jokes [Self][Quest]

Through the halls of HQ, a muffled, gleeful giggling could be heard as one member set up one of his elaborate pranks. Aqen sat cross-legged on the floor with his mask pushed up on top of his head - so he could see what he was doing, of course. The young man was working on what seemed to be one of those large jugs of water seen in office buildings worldwide. Of course, that was what he wanted everyone to think. With a triumphant cry, he sealed the giant jug to the water dispenser, then moved quickly to hide the evidence, all while practically vibrating with excitement. This was going to be his best prank, yet!

Whisper and Pyre made their way down the hall, hand-in-hand and smiling brightly. The two were almost sickeningly in love. They had been unbearable in their pining before, but now they were nearly as bad with the love-filled looks they always sent to each other. Speaking of, they both approached to water dispenser, barely paying attention to their surroundings as they continued their conversation. As if by muscle memory, the two filled their water cups respectively and took a sip, humming appreciatively before continuing their trek into HQ.

At precisely 7:45 am, the familiar clacking of high heels began echoing down the main corridor of HQ. After a short moment, a tall purple-suited woman rounded the corner. Yzma, punctual as ever, reached the water dispenser at exactly 7:48 am, filled her cup, and took a sip while waiting for her coffee, which would arrive at exactly 7:50. As soon as the liquid touched her tongue, Yzma froze, eyes wide. Getting over her initial shock, she spit out the liquid and immediately poured out the cup before tossing it. She scowled, but was thankful when Alen arrived with the coffee - right on time. The woman scowled down at the water dispenser before taking a sip of coffee. Pranks were childish and utterly unamusing. At exactly 7:51 am, Alen alighted on her shoulder, and the two continued into their office, sitting down at exactly 7:55 am.

Next, a short, muscular woman stalked down the hall. She, much like Whisper and Pyre, barely paid attention to her surroundings, albeit for an entirely different reason. She was so intent on her thoughts that she nearly missed the water dispenser. She would have, if she hadn't nearly tripped on it. Growling with rage, she turned and glared at the offending construct. Sickle stomped up to it, then snatched a cup from the pile and filled it. Still scowling heatedly, she took a sip, expecting a nice, refreshing mouthful of water. She immediately spat it back out and threw the cup on the ground in a fit of rage. Leaving the mess to be dealt with later, she stormed away angrily, vowing revenge on whoever set this up.

Another round of clicking echoed around the walls as Esther entered the building. On her shoulder sat Nela, who was already lively for such an early hour. The tall woman smiled down at her companion, listening carefully to her story as they approached the water dispenser. Both of them took a cup and sipped at it, Nela's thought-speech still going strong as they did so. Her story actually halted, though, as she stopped to appreciate the sweeter-than-usual taste of the liquid. Esther, though surprised at the unexpected flavor, found it hard to be irritated. In fact, she was only irritated by the fact that somebody had decided to make a mess on the floor. However, she refused to dwell on it, and simply cleaned it up before standing once more. She nodded at her companion to continue the story as the pair moseyed further into the building.

As soon as the doors had slid closed behind Esther and Nela, two towering figures entered the building, each intimidating in their own ways. Perish, the darker-haired figure, had their stony visage turned toward Genesis, the more feminine of the two, who was sharing the latest data with her co-coordinator. The two stopped in surprise at the sight of the water dispenser. Genesis smiled slightly and laughed, immediately knowing the trickery, while Perish laughed with only their eyes. The pair, however, decided to follow along, each retrieving a cup of the sweet beverage. First, Perish took a sip, then pretended to spit it back out, their eyes widened with faux-shock. Genesis was next, and she hummed contentedly at the taste while thumping Perish on the back. Laughing to themselves as if sharing a secret, they then continued into their workplace, cups drained and empty in the trash.

Next came Lara and Utra, who were both cheerful and relaxed. It was a beautiful day outside, after all! The two had enjoyed the nice weather by going for a stroll that morning, but were still a bit dehydrated. What luck that they noticed the water dispenser, then. With triumphant grins, the two strolled up to the machine and grabbed cups. After the first sip, the two seemed adorably confused by the flavor. After the second sip, however, they were practically radiating excitement. Lara pulled out her and Utra's reusable water bottles and filled them to the brim. The two shared a high-five, then continued on to their office joyfully.

Suddenly a large, hulking bird barged into the HQ. Her feathers looked slightly ruffled, and her expression could be described only as thoroughly annoyed. With a huff, she shook herself out, laying her plumage down smoothly once more before continuing her march down the hallway. The glare, however, refused to leave her face, and her eyes nearly bore holes through the wall where Genesis and Perish disappeared. A woman on a mission, she didn't spare the water dispenser a second glance. She instead called down the hallway to her boss, telling her to stay away from that ruffian. The only response she was given in return was muffled laughter, along with a crudely phrased version of can't you leave well enough alone, Eliza? Squawking indignantly, Eliza doubled her pace, then continued muttering about foolish children.

The water dispenser sat untouched in the midst of the chaos.

As if channeling the energy from before, the next pair to arrive in the building were quite flustered. Panting heavily, a young woman and her reptilian companion bolted down the hallway. Lyla hated, hated, hated being late for work (she really blamed Lara, but of course she would never admit that out loud). Artu, however, was more concerned about not falling off of Lara's shoulder.

The two nearly blew by the water dispenser, but Lara halted at the last minute, nearly sending Artu flying. With shaky hands, she filled a cup, and proceeded to almost immediately drain it dry. Wiping her mouth on the back of her sleeve, she tossed the cup in the trash, then took off again, bursting through the doors at the end of the hall.

And finally, a short, but lithe woman strode down the hall, as if walking on air. Despite being nearly late to her job, she seemed strangely calm, and content smile on her lips. Her eyes scanned the walls of the workplace she had grown to know intimately and love endlessly. Eventually, her gaze landed on the water dispenser, and she changed her path to include the machine, as well. After reaching the spot, she filled one of the disposable cups and sipped from it. She smiled at the sweet taste and fizzy feeling in her mouth, and continued on towards the enterence. She felt someone's eyes on her as she approached the entrance, and smiled even wider, sending a warm grin to Aqen's hiding spot behind some potted plants.

Thinking twice, the woman turned back to the machine, then pulled out a pen and notepad. After scratching a message down, she left the paper on the machine, then walked into HQ without further interruption.
