"Alright, kiddies, listen up." Mr. Yoshida said. "In gym class
today we will be playing dodgeball. There will be multiple balls going around.
It will be every person for themselves." He went and retrieved the ball
bin. "The balls will be here. Well, get to it!"
"Hey, Hilde!" Duo called out. "I know you won't be able to hit
me, because I am Shinigami, God of Death!"
"Shut up with this whole Shinigami thing, Duo!" Hilde yelled back.
"Tell you what, if you get me out first, I'll be your slave for a month.
But if I get you first, you're my slave for a month."
"You're on!" Duo said.
Zechs was taking off his helmet when Noin approached him.
"Why are you taking off your helmet?" She asked. "It will
probably help you in this game."
"I don't want my precious helmet to get dented." He said.
Noin walked away, muttering darkly under her breath. "You'll be sorry you
ever saw that thing."
Soon they were all lined up, each holding a ball and waiting for the signal to
"Huh?" Duo turned towards Hilde and barely ducked in time. "Ha
hah! Didn't get me! Shinigami rules!"
"Oh, Heeeeeerrrooooooo!" Relena called. She threw a ball at him. It
didn't quite reach him, but regardless, Heero pulled out his gun and blasted the
ball to bits.
"Heero Yuy! No guns allowed in the gym!" Mr. Yoshida yelled.
"Eeeeeeek!" Relena screeched. Suddenly a ball bounced towards Relena
and hit her on the hip.
"Ow!" She whined. "That hurt! Heero! Save me!"
"Death before dishonor!" Wufei cried, flinging balls all over the
Quatre dodged one and gently lobbed one of his own at Trowa, who was just
"Looks like you're out, Trowa." Quatre said.
"Okay." Trowa said, standing off to the side with Relena.
"Oh, you got out too! Now I have someone to talk to!"
Trowa just moved away, and Relena followed him, saying, "So, what's your
Noin ducked and rolled away as Zechs threw a ball at her. She jumped up and
threw hers at him, yelling, "Die, Zechs Marquis!"
Zechs looked at her. "I thought I was the love of your-Oof!" He said
as her ball hit him in the stomach.
"I thought that stupid helmet was the love of your life." Noin said,
standing over him.
Quatre was throwing balls when Duo sighted him as a target. He went to throw the
ball at him, but Dorothy threw her ball in front of Quatre where it hit Duo's
and knocked it off its course.
"Hey, what'd you do that for?" Duo asked.
"I Won't let you harm my, sexy, gorgeous Quatre!" Dorothy said.
"He's goinging to need to be in one piece for what I plan to do to him
Quatre covered his face with his hands. "Dorothy, please leave me
alone." He begged.
"You're all mine later, sweetie. Ow!" She cried as Duo's ball hit her
in the back of the head.
"You're out! Off to the side with you!" Duo said.
Dorothy looked crestfallen, but only for a second before she passed Quatre. She
stopped and leaned in to whisper, "I'll catch you later, sexy." She
patted him on the butt before joining Trowa, Zechs and Relena. Quatre turned
"I wish she'd stop stalking me." He muttered.
"Sorry, buddy, can't help you there. Hey, Noin!" Duo cried, throwing a
ball at her. She barely dodged it. Duo shrugged. "Oh well."
Catherine and Hilde were back to back, catching and throwing balls all around.
Hilde turned to Catherine. "Wanna help me get Duo?"
"Okay, sure." Catherine said.
"Die in Hell, Maxwell!" Wufei cried, chasing after Duo.
"Gladlyyyy!" Duo called back happily. Catherine went to throw her ball
at Duo, but she wasn't quick enough. She hit Wufei.
"Oops! Sorry, I was aiming for Duo." She called to him. Wufei hung his
head in shame.
"Taken out by a woman! Oh, the dishonor!" He said, sulking his way to
where everyone else who was out were standing. Sally caught up with him and
tried to comfort him.
"Hey, if it helps, you can thow a ball at me and get me out before you
totally leave the game, sweetie!" She said.
"I'm not going to hit a woman. I don't like fighting weak enemies." He
said. At this Sally got pissed and slammed her ball into Wufei's stomach.
"Weak this, you chauvinistic pig!" She said, then stormed off. Wufei
made his way over to the others.
"Oh well, we can try that again la-Hey!" Hilde said as Duo nailed her
with his ball.
"Hail Shinigami! Worship me! I got ya, Hilde. I guess you're my slave now,
for a whole month."
"Fine." She said, crestfallen.
"Oh, don't worry, you'll like being my slave, especially the kind I want
you to be." Duo said with a wink.
Hilde giggled and went over to the growing group of people who were out. So far
Quatre, Sally, Heero, Catherine, Noin, and Duo were left.
"C'mon, Quatre! You can do it, stud!" Dorothy yelled.
"Heeeerooo! I'll have a present waiting for you if you win!" Relena
offered. Heero gave her a cold stare, and she turned away from him.
"Geez, Mr. Bad Mood. Don't have to take it out on me."
"Get the women out first, so they don't get in the way!" Wufei
shouted. He got pelted with several balls and knocked down.
"Oh the shame." He moaned from the floor.
"Go, Catherine." Trowa said.
"Be careful of my helmet!" Zechs said, worry in his voice.
"Oh, I will." Noin called back in a mocking tone.
"Hey Duo! The faster you beat everybody, the sooner you can put me to
work!" Hilde said.
"I already know what I'm going to make you do when I get through with this
game!" Duo replied.
The remaining players stood, staring at each other, daring each other to make
the first move. Duo was standing beside Heero, and quickly bounced his ball
against Heero's arm. "I guess you're out, buddy." He said. He grabbed
Heero around the shoulders in a quick, friendly hug. "Don't worry, no big
deal, huh?" He looked down at Heero sneering at him, then he pointed his
gun at Duo's face. Duo let go in a hurry.
"Woah! Excuse me!" He said as Heero went over to join the group.
Relena wasted no time in hanging all over him.
"Oh, Heero, that's okay, I still love you!" She said.
"Get off me, now." He growled. She stood up straight.
"Grouchy Goose!" Relena pouted.
Sally made a quick decision and tossed her ball at Quatre. It hit him in the
"You're out!" Sally said.
"Alright!" Dorothy said, clapping her hands and bouncing up and down.
"Oh, you look sad. Come here, I'll make you really happy."
"Oh, no!" Quatre said, quickly moving behind Heero. Dorothy chased him
around Heero for a while before Mr. Yoshida blew his whistle.
"Dorothy, leave Mr. Winner alone!" He roared.
"Poo." Dorothy said.
"Thank you so much!" Quatre practically groveled.
Duo threw his ball at Sally, where it bounced off her onto Catherine. Noin
barely made it away from the ball.
"Double play!" Duo said proudly. Catherine and Sally went over to the
"Guess it's just you and me, Duo." Noin said.
"For the moment." Duo said, then flung his ball at her. Noin dodged it
and threw hers. Duo also got out of its path. After they both grabbed a ball,
they both threw it at the same time. Both their balls hit each other at the same
time, but Noin's bounced off Duo at an angle, off to the side.
Straight for Zechs' helmet.
"No!" Zechs cried, running to save his helmet. It was too late. Noin's
ball hit it and sent it crashing against the wall and onto the floor.
"Ochi-chan," Zechs said, kneeling beside the dented helmet. He started
weeping, unaware of what was happening behind him.
"It-it's a tie." Quatre said.
"No! Mine hit her first!" Duo said.
"No, mine hit you first!" Noin shot back.
They were squaring off to fight for the title of 'Winner' when the bell rang.
"Oh darn, class is over." Noin said. She stuck her hand out.
"Good game, huh?"
Duo shook her hand. "Yeah. Good game."
Everyone filed out of the gym, chatting.
"So, are you going to Home Ec. now, Dorothy?" Relena asked.
"Nope. I'm following my sex-oozing Quatre to music class."
"Eep." Quatre said, ready to bolt.
Zechs was still weeping by his helmet when Noin grabbed him and hauled him up.
"C'mon, you can get another one, although I'd prefer you not."
"Ochi-chan!" Zechs cried as he reached for his helmet.
"So, Duo, you have lunch next, right?" Hilde said.
"Yep. What do you say we go to the bathroom and you can start your work
"Hey, Quatre, doesn't that sound like a good idea for us to do too?"
Dorothy said, latching onto him.
