“MU-MUUUU!! WAKE UUUUPPP!!!!”, Nico shouted, jumping to land in Mukeiko’s bed-like construction, trying to wake up her twin. While she landed and splashed in her twin’s residual ink, Mukeiko’s core wasn’t in the bed. “Mu-Mu?”, She asks.
“Yes?”, came from the bathroom, “what is it?” Mukeiko pokes her not yet fully-formed head into the twin’s bedroom.
“You’re up already?! And to think I woke up way earlier?”, Nico pouts, “I really thought I’d be up earlier than you this time...”
“You know that’s near impossible if you want enough sleep right?”, the reply sounds, “don’t you remember I only need to lose my form and… I guess sleep? For a few hours, granted. I wake up generally around midnight. You remember this, right?”
“Oh. Right. Sorry! Well, shall we go? We gotta train early, before other people go to Dagobah and get in the way!”, Nico chirps, before trying to run out of the room. But before she could do that, her sister grabs her.
“Have you forgotten you can’t train in your sleepwear?” the inky sister points out.
“Oops, right!”, Nico bashfully exclaims, rubbing the back of her head.
While Nico gets ready, Mukeiko picks up the remaining ink in her bed, cleaning it up.
When the twins are done with their morning routine, they rush to “their” part of Dagobah beach, hoping to get as much training as they could in before the real crowds arrive.
“C’mon sis you won’t catch up to villains if you’re as slow as this! ~Go~fas~ter~!”, Nico sing-songs teasingly, speeding up her run. Mukeiko seems to be having difficulties keeping up.
“W-wait up..!”, the inky twin replies, looking as if she’s melting, “you know I’m not as fast… I need to focus on not melting..!!”, she pants.
“Oh! Right!” Nico slows down and turns around, running backwards. “We need to work on that!”, she giggles, turning back around. “Now, come we’re here…? Who the fuck is that?!”, she suddenly exclaims.
~ * ~
This boy was standing where the water should be, if it wasn’t being pushed away by the wind and air moving around the boy. This same air seems to be holding up the boy, who’s leaning backwards in a way that should’ve caused him to fall. He seems to be concentrated and peaceful. The boy has messy dark gray hair and pale skin. The piece of his outfit that stands out the most is a red scarf, as next to the red of this article of clothing, he wear mostly neutral tones.
“OI! WHO IN THE FUCK ARE YOU?!”, Nico screams, quite loudly, startling the birds around her.
Next to her, Mukeiko facepalms. “Oh dear...”, she murmurs, familiar with her sister’s antics.
Startledness appears to not be limited to birds, as the boy falls over with a loud “Wa-AH!”
“Oh dear..”, Mukeiko reapeats, now out loud, as she runs over towards the fallen boy. “Are you allright?” She checks the boy over.
“Yes”, the boy says, glaring coldly at Nico, “no thanks to that girl over there though.”
“Hey! I was just asking a question!”, Nico whines in reply, puffing up her cheeks.
“By shouting?”, came the short reply.
“Yes!”, Nico exclaims, “you were far away!”
“Quit shouting…”, the boy deadpans.
While this squabble between the two teens is going on, Mukeiko is standing in the background awkwardly. That is, before she decides to act against the unfolding argument, stretching her arms around her sister’s mouth. This in turn causes a gurgle of “Blegh, ink”, to come out of the now entangled Nico’s mouth, through the ink keeping her captive and, -to the strange boy’s great satisfaction- effectively shutting her up.
“Can we please not fight with someone we just met?”, Mukeiko pleads with her twin, after which she removes her arm from her sister’s mouth
“He started it!”, her sister whines.
“You startled me.”, the boy chimed in dryly.
Before Nico can reply to this, Mukeiko starts speaking: “Ah! Right, sorry for that…!”, She mumbles awkwardly.
“Anyways… uh…I am Sumitsubo Mukeiko. This is my sister Nico”, Mukeiko says, changing the subject, “Can we know your name...?”
“…” The boy stays silent.
“…” An awkward silence comes into existence. Everyone looks across to one another for a brief moment, until Nico, who at this point was getting annoyed, breaks the silence with a frustrated grunt.
“Whatever… c’mon Mu-Mu, let’s go train.”
“All right”, Mukeiko replies, before turning to the boy and asking: ”You wanna join us? It might be nice to train with someone of who we don’t know the Quirk…”
“Wait, before that, are you okay with that, Nikkun?”, Mukeiko says, interrupting herself by asking her sister this question.
“Ok.” both the boy and Nico reply.
“What is your Quirk anyways?”, Mukeiko asks, switching her mouth and eyes back to the side of her head visible to the boy. “Is it wind manipulation?”
“…” The boy stays silent again.
“Aaaallrighty, then”, Nico drawls “We’re not doin’ another awkward silence. Let’s start warm-ups or something!”
After she says this she starts doing stretches. “Let’s do a run across the beach after stretches. Like…uh… to that beach…house…dock…thing!”, Nico proposes. “If Windy wants to join us he’s free to!”, she states afterwards, seemingly calmed down from her frustration. “You okay with that Mu-Mu?”, she asks her sister.
“Uhhh…yeah…!”, Mukeiko replies as she starts stretching her body to silly lengths.
Now dubbed “Windy”, the boy looks at them both, before also starting to stretch.
~ * ~
“Weelllll then~”, Nico hums in a obviously improved mood, “I think I’m warmed up enough! ~Let’s get to running!~” She giggles and takes off.
“Nikkun, wait!”, Mukeiko yelps as she runs after her sister. Windy follows too.
As they’re running, the boy starts gaining on Nico. She notices this and she starts speeding up.
About halfway to the beach-house Nico is actually quite far in front of both her sister and Windy. She looks back slightly and starts to open her mouth to speak but…
She smacks against an invisible wall and falls on her butt, yelping in pain as she does so. Mukeiko runs up to her sister in worry, checking if she’s okay. Nico seems fine aside from a bump beginning to form on her head, and slightly dazed behavior. Windy touches the wall, looking at the seemingly empty air with an apathetic expression.
“What even?!”, Nico sputters, cradling her head after shaking off the slight daze she got. After deciding the wall is most likely caused by a Quirk, she starts looking around to find where the one making the wall is. Finally her eyes land on a person a little to the left of the group. The person is, most likely, a boy, with his arms stretched out in front of him and his palms angled out. Most of his features are obscured by an over-sized hoodie.
As the kid finally processes what has happened he dropped his arms, yelping an apology and running up the stairs, then away. The moment he dropped his arms the wall disappears.
“Hey! Wait! You!”, Nico shouts after the newcomer, hopping back up on her feet and chasing after him. “WAAIITT”, she screams after him. Seeing him turn a corner, she speeds up a bit. Her sister and the other boy, in turn, chase after Nico.
The group of three dash after the kid, only to see him take another corner.
And so they continue, turning corner after corner, going into the city, nearly catching up a few times, until…
“There! That’s a dead end!”, Nico exclaims in victory, running into the side alley she saw the kid take. “He should be…! Huh?!” She cuts herself off, startled, as the other two also arrive in the dead end, only to find that the kid disappeared. “Where’d he go?!”, Nico squeaks with a startled face.
“Are you sure we turned the right corner?”, Windy says, bluntly.
“Yes! I’m not blind”, Nico sputters, “where’d he go…?”
Mukeiko looks around for a bit, and then speaks up. “He might have taken that ladder up.”, she says, pointing at it, “he seems fit enough to reach it.”
“We should, however, get back”, she states after a small pause. Immediately afterwards she softly mumbles another thing: “There’s no reason to be chasing the poor kid anyway.”
“Fiiiine”, Nico whines before stretching her body, “Oh, well. It was a good warm-up!”
“Let’s go then”, the boy grumbles, as he turns to walk back to the beach.
The other two follow him.
~ * ~
As they return to the beach, Mukeiko speaks up: “You guys can begin sparring. I…want to practice how to manipulate my body whilst not melting.”
“That’s fine!~”, Nico hums, “I wanna see how this guy fights!” She turns towards Windy and takes on her fighting position. “Let’s do a round without quirks first!”, she proposes.
“Sure, why not?”, the boy sighs in reply, “well, then, three” ,he begins to count down.
“Two” Nico chimes in
“THREE!!” And as she shouts this, Nico charges at the boy, keeping low, while the boy prepares to intercept her. Nico kicks high, towards his face. But he grabs her leg, holding her in place momentarily before pushing her away and backing up.
“Is that all?”, the gray-haired boy taunts Nico, awaiting her next attack.
“Hey!”, Nico hisses, as she runs to attack him again, trying to kick his stomach this time. The boy manages to dodge this easily, getting behind her. This in turn causes Nico to stumble, as she had expected to hit. Taking advantage of the situation, Windy shoves Nico, causing her to fall down in the sand and yelp in surprise. He also tries capitalise on this, but Nico rolls away and trips him. It works! As he tries to move away, he gets hit and falls down, while she gets back up and tries to stomp on him. However he curls in on himself, and, like a spring, unfurls and gets up. However, Nico dodges away from getting hit by this.
It goes on like this for a while, trading blow after blow, falling down, and getting back up. With Windy keeping back and holding her at arm’s length, taunting, while Nico closes the distance, getting more and more frustrated and growing more and more exhausted. This continues and continues, until…
Nico shrieks in frustration as she runs low and tries to punch the boy. He easily dodges this now sloppy move and Nico misses, runs past, and turns around panting. The boy now makes the first move, rushing the exhausted Nico and kneeing her in the stomach, making her fall. She doesn’t try to get back up.
“You win”, she pants with a smile on her face, “Maann”, she groans, getting up. “I haven’t had such a tough fight in a while, no offense, Mu-mu!” she shouts, while also getting the expected reply: “None taken”, from Mukeiko’s direction.
The boy grunts in reply.
“Well. I’ve seen your quirk and you’ve seen my sister’s”, Nico mutters, “but you’ve never seen mine so…” Nico takes out a sketchbook and turns to a page with a drawing of a ball “Hmmm… half an hour should be fine...”, she mutters, before ripping out the page and holding it close. After a bit she throws it and it turns into black ink, which then grows into a sphere. This sphere then starts adhering to the laws of gravity, and falls down to the earth. And now there, in the sand, lays a ball, an exact copy of that which was drawn on the page. If you were to look at Nico’s hair, you’d notice that her roots turned blonde.
“Well there we go, that’s my quirk.”, Nico says, “I can make things come into existence for a limited amount of time. I just need to draw them accurately.” She picks up the ball she created and throws it towards the boy. “I’mma practice my quirk now. You can use these.” Nico settles comfortably on the ground. “Come to me when this one runs out.”
And so they begin training. Mukeiko stretching, Nico drawing flowers and popping them into existence, making the black in her hair recede, and the boy floating around the ball.
And so they spend the rest of their time. As the first ball returns to paper, Windy gives it back to Nico in her garden of flowers, constantly popping in and out of existence. Nico now pops two of the balls into existence, one from the paper the boy returned.
This routine continues until Mukeiko speaks up: “I think it’s time to go home, Nico. The sun is going down.”
“Yeah, true.” Nico says. She then adds: “We should wait till every creation poofs, though. I don’t wanna litter.”
As they wait, Windy speaks up: “Kazehana.”
“Huh?”, Nico replies in confusion.
“My name. It’s Kazehana Asio. You asked for it right?”
“Oh! Right! Well, it’s nice to meet youm Kazehana-kun! My name is Sumitsubo Nico, and this is my sister Mukeiko. Let’s get along!”
“Yeah…” the boy formerly known as Windy, now known as Kazehana, mutters: “Let’s get along, then, Sumitsubo-kun. You too, Sumitsubo-chan. See ya round, I guess.” Kazehana then turns around and walks off just as the last objects pop back into paper.
“See ya!”, Nico screams after him, while Mukeiko chimes in with a quick “Farewell!”, after which both turn around and start picking up the pieces of paper, wondering if they’d see their new friend tomorrow too.
