Dreizler's House, Hayden and Diamond's Room 9:00 am
It was a sunny day in Crown-Town at the sapsford street in the dreizler's house when the alarm clock in Hayden and Diamond's room ranged and the two woke up. Diamond "turned off" the alarm clock by punching it strong enough to destroy it.
"Good morning, Diamond." greeted Hayden. "How did you slept?"
"Good, but I doubt the clock did too." answered Diamond, looking at the remains of the destroyed alarm clock. "So, what are we gonna do today?"
"We'll see if we can complete another challenge of the book." answered Hayden, taking out the S.O.L book and opening it. "We have done the dodgeball and treehouse challenge, though the second one was done by Asphodel and her friends."
"What's the next challenge?" asked Diamond, getting out of her bed.
"It's about paying our debts." answered Hayden, looking at the challenge below the treehouse one while he got out of his bed. "I think we'll do it later since neither of us have any debts."
Hayden and Diamond changed from their nightwear to their normal clothes and went downstairs to the kitchen to eat their breakfast. When they left, a girl wearing a scout uniform arrived trough the window to the room, following the siblings once she spotted them.
Downstairs at the Kitchen
Hayden, Diamond and Asphodel were sitting together in the table on the kitchen, eating their cereal. Without catching their attention, the scout girl arrived trough the door and sat close to Hayden, Diamond being the one to notice her presence.
"Hey Hayden, I think you have a fan." said Diamond, referring the scout girl. "Either that or a girlfriend."
"What makes you think that?" asked Hayden.
"There's a girl behind you, wearing a scout girl uniform." answered Diamond. "I think she likes you."
Hayden turned around and saw the scout girl looking at him with an angry look.
"Who are you?" asked Hayden.
"Oh please, don't tell you've already forgotten about me, Suzy." said the scout girl. "Episode 1, Chapter 4, this season, the leader of The Dodgeball Lords?"
"... Oh, now I remember." said Hayden. "What do you want?"
"I'm part of Crown-Town's scout organization, The Royalhounds, Puppy level." answered Suzy. "I'm the leader of team 3, composed of the other members of the first episode. Yesterday, one of my comrades told me an... interesting notice."
"Aaaaannd?" asked Hayden.
"She told me one customer did not pay their cookies. And yes, the cookies are serious for the scouts." answered Suzy. "We make and bake the cookies ourselves, with our own clean hands, and pack them in the boxes to give to people around town. We do not tolerate people grabbing and eating our hard work and giving us nothing in return."
"And let me guess, you think I was the one who did it?" said Hayden.
"Yes, Mindy said one of you did not pay what you ordered." said Suzy. "And, as one philosophy goes anyway, boys absolutely LOVE candy."
"You're misunderstood, I did not order any cookies yesterday, the one you're probably looking for is Diamond, the girl next to me." said Hayden.
"Uh-huh, I think I know what's going on here." said Suzy. "You're one of those people who either make an absurd excuse or put the blame on someone else to not pay what you have to pay for the cookies."
"Wow Hayden, and I thought you were a nice boy." jokingly said Diamond, laughing a bit.
"Look I may be a little mean sometimes, though I think those times haven't arrived yet, but I would never buy something and not pay for it." said Hayden. "Trust me, I didn't order any cookies."
"Look kid, all I want is the money the scouts rightfully deserve, so hand it over." said Suzy.
"Sorry, but I can't give you anything now, for two reasons I'm not gonna bother to explain because I already did." said Hayden in a slightly annoyed tone. "Come tomorrow and we'll talk about it, okay?"
After finishing their breakfast the Dreizler's left the kitchen and went back to their rooms to get ready to go to school and their job, leaving Suzy alone in the kitchen. Once she verified they had left, she took out her cellphone and contacted her scout superior.
"Hello? Oh it's you Suzy." said a voice trough cellphone. "What do you need?"
"Miss Madeline, I need permission to execute plan S." answered Suzy to the Madeline, the one talking trough the cellphone.
"The funny way or the scary way?" asked Madeline.
"... Really? There is a funny way to execute plan S?" asked Suzy in a deadpan tone.
"... Good point, permission to do it in the scary way granted." answered Madeline. After hearing that, Suzy got an evil grin on her face. "And don't give up until they've given the money."
"Don't worry, I won't." said Suzy. "He will pay."
Crown-Town's playground 2:00 pm
After school, Hayden and Diamond were playing in the sandbox in the playground while Asphodel, sitting on a bench, was watching them closely. Diamond was trying to build a sand castle while Hayden only slowly played with the sand.
"What's wrong Hayden?" asked Diamond, noticing Hayden's slow playing.
"I'm wondering about what that Suzy girl was talking about." answered Hayden slightly worried. "I'm pretty sure I didn't order anything from her. You're not involved in this are you Diamond?"
"Hayden, stop putting the blame on me." scolded Diamond, her hands on her waist.
"I'm not putting the blame on you, I'm just saying that you buying the cookies is more logical." clarified Hayden. "After all, you like candy and sweets."
"You like them too." said Diamond.
"Yeah, but I don't like them as much as you do." said Hayden.
"Hayden, Diamond, stop fighting." told Asphodel to Hayden and Diamond.
"We're not fighting, we're discussing." said Diamond to Asphodel. "Wich is something completely different."
"Uh-huh." said Asphodel. "Anyway, wanna eat something?"
"Yeah." answered Hayden and Diamond in unison.
Hayden and Diamond got up and left the sandbox as they followed Asphodel to the portable ice chest Asphodel brought. when Asphodel opened it, Suzy was inside it drinking apple juice, scaring the dreizler trio.
"Whi-Who-What are you doing there?!" asked Asphodel.
"One of your kids-" said Suzy before being interrupted.
"They're not my kids." interrupted Asphodel in an annoyed tone.
"Whatever." said Suzy. "The boy you're taking care of has not payed, so I had to execute plan S."
"Plan S?" asked Hayden.
"Yes, I'll follow you everywhere and I'll be watching you every second until you give me the money you own." answered Suzy. "And now that you know about what's waiting for you, you'll give me the money, right?"
"For goodness sake, I did not ordered anything!" exclaimed Hayden annoyed.
"Hmph, I can see you're persistent." said Suzy, with Hayden facepalming. "Well then, do what you wanna do, but you WILL pay me, even if I have to go to the extremes to get you to do so!"
Suzy closed the portable ice chest just before opening it again and getting out of it, immediately closing it once she got out and then leaving the playground.
"... Well, she made her point." said Asphodel, taking out two grape juice boxes. "Who wants grape juice?"
Hayden and Diamond raised their hands in unison and Asphodel gave the two grape juice boxes. Hiding in the shadows and waiting for them to leave the playground, Suzy quietly chuckled a bit as a small but evil smile appeared on her face.
At the local hang-out 2:03 pm
Hayden was talking with Helen about what they could decorate the treehouse before being interrupted by a cellphone ringing, it was Hayden's cellphone.
"Helen, can you wait a minute?" asked Hayden.
"Yeah, do whatever you need to do." answered Helen.
Hayden took out his cellphone and opened it to see a message... from Suzy, wich read "Pay me already". After he read and erased the message, Hayden resumed his little chat with Helen before she saw a girl behind Hayden.
"Umm, Hayden, who's that girl behind you?" asked Helen, pointing at Suzy.
Turning around, Hayden got an annoyed look when he saw Suzy standing behind him with a frown on her face.
"Suzy, what are you doing here?" asked Hayden.
"I told you I would follow you around until you gave up and payed the money you own to the scouts." answered Suzy. "Pay already if you want me to leave you alone."
"What did he do to own money to the scouts?" asked Helen.
"He took one of my scout comrades services without paying." answered Suzy.
"Please tell me that she's referring to cookies when she says services." requested Helen slightly disturbed.
"Yes." said Suzy before giving Hayden an angry glare. "Fortunately yes."
Hayden, sighing, told Helen he would talk with her later as he left the hang-out and went back to the playground, Suzy following him.
Crown-Town's Playground 2:05 pm
Hayden, not noticing Suzy was still following him, went to play in the sandbox alone. He was indifferent when he turned around and saw Suzy, still with a frown on her face.
"Please tell me you're gonna give up eventually." said Hayden.
"Nope, I was ordered to not give up until you pay the money." replied Suzy.
"I DID NOT BUYED ANYTHING!" exclaimed Hayden, getting up to his feet. "Forget it, I'm going home."
Hayden left the playground and Suzy's mode got worse as she started to follow him back to his home. At first, Suzy was a minor annoyance, only appearing in places where it was expected, albeit creepy, for her to appear; Under the bed, under a table, etc. However, she started to appear everywhere, from the improbable to the impossible. Hayden getting more paranoid every time she appeared and exclaimed "Pay me!" in an angry tone.
Later, in the bathroom
Hayden was taking a bath in the bathroom in the tub alone, Looking around to see if he was totally alone and Suzy was nowhere to be seen, resuming his bath before once he verified it.
His peace did not last long as he saw a few bubbles coming out of the water, right before Suzy rised from the water while Hayden was completely scared.
"What's wrong with you?!" asked Hayden. "Don't you know about personal space?!"
"Heck personal space, I want my money!" exclaimed Suzy.
Hayden got out of the tub and left the bathroom as fast as he could while screaming. Suzy submerging back to the water when he left.
At the living Room
After putting on clean clothes, Hayden was Desperately trying to find a place where he could hide from the scout girl. Hayden decided to hide in one of the most absurd places he could think about, underneath somebody's clothing. Luckily, Asphodel was nearby reading a magazine on the couch.
Taking the chance, Hayden went running to Asphodel and loudly started to go inside Asphodel's sweater. Trying to figure out what she felt, Asphodel looked at her sweater, saw that Hayden was underneath it and released a sigh.
"Hayden, you know it's not mother's day yet, right?" asked Asphodel to Hayden.
"Yeah. I'm sorry but I don't know where else to hide, that scout girl is everywhere I go!" answered and explained Hayden. "What are these soft things my head's feeling anyway?"
"I would answer your question but you're too young to know." said Asphodel before giving Hayden a warning. "And don't even think about touching them."
Just in that moment, Diamond arrived and noticed Asphodel reading a magazine with Hayden's silhouette on the stomach part of her turtleneck sweater. Getting a confused look, Diamond walked to Asphodel.
"Is it mother's day yet?" asked Diamond.
"No." answered Asphodel.
"Then that means-" said Diamond before gasping. "You eated Hayden?!"
"Of course not." said Asphodel.
"Yeah, I taste horrible." said Hayden. "Wait, what did I just said?"
"Then what is Hayden-" said Diamond before getting the idea. "He's hiding from the scout girl isn't it?"
"Yep." answered Asphodel and Hayden in unison.
"Hayden, just pay what you need to pay and she'll leave you alone." said Diamond.
"Oh come on Diamond!" shouted Hayden in an angry tone. "Don't tell me you're on her side."
"Hayden, I'm sorry, but unless there's any evidence that prove you're innocent, I have no choice." said Diamond. "Can't you just, I don't know, take out your wallet and give her the money she wants?"
"I don't have a wallet, Diamond." answered Hayden.
"Well I don't know what else to suggest." said Diamond.
"... Hold on, I just realized something." said Asphodel. "If that scout girl appears everywhere you go, shouldn't she be hiding underneath my sweater too?"
Feeling a somebody close to him, Hayden turned around and saw Suzy next to him. Freaking out, Hayden got out of Asphodel's sweater and started to run away, only to be cornered in a dead-end by Suzy.
"If you have any evidence that proves I did what you said, then show it!" exclaimed Hayden.
Suzy started to unbutton her scout girl's shirt, revealing a pink t-shirt underneath. Believing the wrong thing, Hayden covered his eyes with his hands while saying "If I don't see it, it won't be dirty.", much to the confusion of Suzy.
"What are you doing?" asked Suzy, taking out a pamphlet. "I'm just taking out the pamphlet they gave me."
"Phew, what a relief." said Hayden, grabbing the pamphlet. "But what's this?"
"It's a pamphlet the scouts used to promote their cookies and services some time ago. It appeared in an accidentally shown obsolete commercial a week or so ago that said that the cookies or services would be free if anybody gave the scout the pamphlet." answered and explained Suzy. "Problem is, it expired 7 years ago."
"But I didn't gave anybody a pamphlet." said Hayden. "I don't even remember finding this, the only one I saw with a pamphlet a week or so ago was Diamond-"
Hayden realized something as he saw Diamond walking past the two. Hayden grabbed Diamond by the arm and looked at her with an angry look, scaring her a bit.
"D-D-Do you need something?" asked Diamond, slightly scared.
"Can you explain this pamphlet Suzy gave me?" asked Hayden, showing Diamond the pamphlet.
"I'll explain that in a flashback." answered Diamond.
One flashback later
"So, You got the pamphlet from Rico, ordered 4 boxes of cookies from the scouts, gave them the expired pamphlet that Rico gave you,-" said Hayden before yelling in rage. "-AND YOU DID NOT EVEN LOOKED AT THE PAMPHLET YOU WERE GIVING!?"
"Wow, when you say that you make me look so stupid." said Diamond.
"YOU ARE STUPID!" yelled Hayden. "WHY DIDN'T YOU EVEN SAW THE STUPID PAMPHLET!?"
"I have the right to do something stupid for once." answered Diamond.
"Okay, stop the dog-cat fight." said Suzy, separating Hayden and Diamond before looking at the latter. "Your brother didn't do it, like he said, but since you were the one who buyed the cookies and tought that pamphlet was useful you will have to pay the money you own."
"All right, I'll ask Asphodel if she can give me money and-" said Diamond before being interrupted.
"You have to pay with your money." interrupted Suzy.
"Oh." said Diamond. "Then, how much do I own you?"
"Let me see." said Suzy, taking out a calculator. "The boxes cost 5 dollars each, 10 more dollars are added every day the customer doesn't pay, it's been a week and so on... I think you own the scouts 110 dollars."
Diamond's eyes widened when she heard the ridiculous amount of money she owned.
"But I don't have that much money!" shouted Diamond.
"Oh don't worry, I know a way you can pay the scouts what you own." said Suzy in an evil tone.
At the royalhounds camp
Miss Madeline, a 30-something year old woman, was about to announce something to the rest of the royalhounds scouts present.
"Now, I would like to present all of you our new temporary scout girl, Diamond Dreizler!" announced Miss Madeline while Diamond walked to her side.
Everybody cheered after Miss Madeline said that, while Diamond looked frustrated at the entire group she would have to spend time with to pay her debt.
"Why me?" mentally asked Diamond.
