“Are you going to agree?” Tamajiki asked, “because if you’re not going to, then we’ll go.”
The guy pulled himself up and glared at Tamajiki.
“You think you’re so hard, but wait till I contract you. You’ll be powerless.”
“Yes but you can’t force me,” Tamajiki replied calmly, “you just tried to and it didn’t work.”
The guy scowled and grit his teeth, staring Tamajiki down until he finally gave in.
“Alright FINE,” he snapped, “I won’t do anything underhanded.”
Tamajiki nodded and held his finger out towards the holographic button but as the guy stepped forward to do the same, Tamajiki grabbed him by the scruff of the collar and dragged him in closer.
“You’ll pay if you do,” your man said lowly, and for a second there you felt his Butterfli3 persona jump out.
The guy yanked back and straightened up then pressed the consent button, as did Tamajiki- a yellow slave seal appearing on his arm, only just visible below his sleeve.
“Your turn,” the guy grunted at you and you glanced at Tamajiki to make sure it was ok before getting your own slave seal.
As your character skin yellowed, a strange stinging sensation appeared and you pulled your sleeve up to watch the mark appear before the stinging left and all that was in place was the yellow emblem.
“Now,” the guy said, “you’ll refer to me as ‘master’ and you will act like obedient people in public…”
“Is your penis that small that you need to compensate so much you’re resorting to pretending you have actual ‘slaves’,” you thought to yourself, giving ‘master’ a very deadpan look.
You and Tamajiki just stood and waited for him to finish his little power hungry spiel then remained silent to see if he would tell you what he needed you to do but he just stood there with a smug look on his face.
“So what did you need us for?” you asked him.
“Moving guns to a higher level in your inventory,” he replied, “if I get stopped they’ll check me, but if you’re sneaking past as travelers then they won’t check you but if you do get stopped and caught then you get the fine and penalties.”
You narrowed your eyes at him.
He just smirked.
Tamajiki just nodded.
“My… fellow slave and I, need to rest before we do that. Please show us to our quarters so that we may log out,” Tamajiki said to him.
‘Master’ grunted, then gestured down the hall. “You share the same room, first door on the left.”
“That suits us fine actually,” you chuckled internally.
You followed Tamajiki’s lead down the hall and entered the room with him, then he shut the door.
With a finger to his lips, he motioned for you to stay silent then walked over to the bed, leading you.
“Well. I’m going to log out now,” Tamajiki said in a loud voice.
You caught on immediately.
“Umm, yeah me too. See you tomorrow? 4:30pm?”
You lay down on the bed next to him.
“Bye,” you said loudly then logged out, waiting for him to join you back in his room.
He came too and opened his eyes beside you so you sat up and took the head gear off.
“What the hell was all of that?! Oh my god! This is horrible! We need to stop this blue businessmen ring it’s literally human trafficking and this asshole who as ‘bought’ us thinks he’s living in some kind of supremacy land and we’re his actual slaves. Actually, thank you for kicking his ass because I was so close to doing it myself. Oh my god. The fuck?”
“Y/N, please, calm down,” Tamaki said softly, “it’s ok, we just need to deal with this for a little bit before we can act.”
“Why did you smack him one but not the other guy who hit you with the bat? Isn’t this guy going to know you’re experienced since you hit him?”
“No. This guy isn’t very bright… I can see that already,” Tamaki replied nonchalantly.
“Amajiki throwing shade?!” you said with surprise, “that’s something I never thought I’d see.”
He blushed and looked away as he scratched his cheek.
“It’s ok, you’re right though,” you chuckled, “so why did we need to be quiet in the room?”
“Just in case he has the room bugged,” Tamaki replied, finally removing his headset and fixing up his hair. We’ll need some signals in game I think.”
“Ok.” You nodded, “so what’s our next move then?”
“We can’t stay with this person we’re assigned to… we’ll need to slowly move up the ranks and figure out who is at the top of all of this,” Tamaki said, “but that’s going to be a little difficult…”
“Well what if we complete this mission then try and get a different owner… or whatever you call it,” you suggested.
He nodded thoughtfully. “There might be more people who are looking to slave contract at the place that we have to deliver these guns.”
“You’re so smart, Jiki,” you gushed with a love struck look in your eyes, “I’m so lucky to have you.”
He blushed shyly and looked down, fiddling with his fingers.
“It’s because you’re with me that I can be like this,” he replied softly.
“I think it’s in y0u,” you replied with a loving smile, “you’ve always had it in you.”
He looked at you and you leaned in to give him a hug.
“But for how… I think I need to get home to bed! We have school again tomorrow!”
“Oh! You’re right,” he replied, “let me walk you home…”
Home he walked you, hand in hand, happy to be together and happy to be doing another mission together.
Time with your bestie was fast running out and you tried to spread your time evenly with her and Tamaki but he understood that she would be leaving soon and you needed to be there for her as much as you could before she left.
“Hey, Jiki, I’m so sorry, I’m not going to be able to be in game tonight,” you said to him as you approached his locker, “B/F wants to hang out…”
He nodded. “That’s ok, I’ll go in game for a little and deal with our master then I can tell you about it tomorrow…”
You nodded, “sounds good. Knock him in the back of the head if you need to. I support you.”
“If I could use my quirk in game I would use my clam shell,” Tamaki replied, making his fist into a clam shell to show it to you.
“That would be wonderful,” you chuckled.
“Oi! Stop cheating on me,” B/F called loudly as she walked over to you and Tamaki.
