dumb boys still being dumb

Who: Susan & Lauren
What: Susan has his magic back
When: Forever ago (Day 86ish)
Where: Their trailer

It had been two weeks, now, since the Ringmaster took his magic. Exploring the islands and playing with Zap helped him to stay occupied and not think too much about it, but not having it was still really off-putting. Lauren had said maybe it was only temporary, but still... It was hard to think positively with something so important missing.

...But, it seemed Lauren was right, and near the end of the Alola trip, his magic returned. Just feeling it around him again, being able to manipulate the magic to do what he wants... It's as natural as breathing, and now that it's back, everything feels right again.

He wants to tell Lauren as soon as it's back, but... what if he just showed him, instead?

And so that's why, when Lauren comes into the trailer after his performances that day, he'll find everything seemingly normal, except for a random chest on the counter, with Susan and their various assorted animals nowhere in sight.

I mean, to be honest his first assumption is that Susan has stolen the chest, or won it, or bought it somehow with a trick. In reality there's many ways it could have gotten here, but all of the ones Lauren could think of involved Susan doing something stupid. He gives the thing a suspicious glance before looking around for his brother.

"Susan? Fluff?"

Enticing to some people sure, to Lauren it's just a big ominous box of unknown possible danger. Really, if you walked into a room and saw a chest just sitting there the odds were, nine times out of ten, that it would be a terrible trap. Probably a mimic or something else terrible. He could take a mimic though, and if it was something awful it would be better and easier to deal with it without Susan hanging around. He looks reaches for his staff, before cautiously wacking the box across the top of it's dome.

Okay. Fake chest. He rolls his eyes, looking in the direction of that 'mysterious' laughter. But then it sort of clicks in his mind that illusions are powered by magic, and that no one in their trailer should be capable of that sort of magic at the exact moment. He looks to the chest again, running his hand through it's image just a few times to be sure, but it's really not there. It takes him about two seconds after that to stride to the bathroom looking round for his brother.

He jumps in surprise, before trying to shove the hand away. He laughs. What the hell?

"Susan! What are you doing!?"

[personal profile] mylastchance 2017-05-17 09:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh my god you liar. He continues to try, in vain, to shove away the hand missing with his hair, but despite the annoyance he's smiling.

"You got your magic back?"

As his brother finally stops bullying him with his magic, he wraps his arms around his brother in a tight hug.

"You little twerp! How long have you been keeping this from me?"

He stands up, carrying his brother into the air as he does so.

"Unbelievable! You should have told me!"

"Do you think I wouldn't have been if you'd just told me?" He asks swinging his body and Susan from side to side as he continues to hold his brother.
