Author's Note: Just a little one shot of Bolt and Jay's best prank so far. Thought it would be fun, and it's a little gift for my awesome friend whose birthday is today. HAPPY BRTHDAY ARISA! As for Esther's story, I'm working. Why is it being so difficult?! DX
Best. Prank. EVER.
Bolt sat on the couch, mindlessly flipping through channels on the TV. Why was it that when he finally had time to watch TV, nothing good was on? Seriously, if he said that he was bored out of his mind that would have been the understatement of the century. Maybe if he called Striker he could talk him into giving him an extra mission or something.
Bolt reached for his phone and, just as he was about to pick it up, it began to ring. He quickly grabbed it, hit the answer button and held it up to his ear, not even bothering to check the caller ID.
"Striker, don't even ask," He said. "You don't have to. Whatever it is, I'll do it. Right now. Just tell me what I'm doing."
"Sorry dude, but I'm not Striker," came Jay's voice from the other end. "But from what you just said I take it you're not doing anything?"
"Not a thing," Bolt said, resting back against the couch. "Why, do you want to go do something?"
"You could say that," Jay said.
"Well, what do you have in mind?"
Bolt waited impatiently in the parking lot, checking his watch for what seemed like the hundredth time in the past five minutes. Where was Jay? He was supposed to be here 20 minutes ago, and there was still no sign of him. After waiting for ten more minutes, a big semi truck pulled into the parking lot. After it parked, the door opened and out stepped a grinning Jay.
"What took you so long?" Bolt called, walking towards his friend with his hands in his pockets and a smile on his face.
"Oh, just getting the supplies," Jay said with a smirk. The two walked to the back of the truck and Jay quickly unlocked the huge door. "Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the prank of the century!" He pushed the door up, revealing the contents of the truck.
"Oh man, that's impressive," Bolt said with a whistle. "But do you think it'll be enough?"
"Nope," Jay said. Then he pointed back to three more semi trucks pulling into the parking lot. "Which is why we have those."
Bolt grinned. This was going to be the best prank ever.
"What's going on over here?"
Canteen and Domino looked behind them to see Hawk walking up towards them.
"Doors stuck," Canteen muttered.
"We can't get in," Domino added with a whine. "We've been waiting out here for an hour and it's cold out."
"Did you try unlocking them?" Hawk asked, pulling out her own set of keys.
"Oh no, we never thought of that," Domino said sarcastically, rolling his eyes. "We already tried. Someone changed the locks."
"It's probably just Bolt and Jay pulling a prank on us," Hawk muttered, pulling a couple of bobby pins from her hair and kneeling by the lock.
"I bet they're in there, sitting right in the door, laughing because we're freezing our asses off," Domino muttered.
"And then they'll probably ambush us with them paintball guns they bought," Canteen added.
"Definitely sound like something they would do," Hawk said in agreement. "Now, just a few more turns and… there!" Hawk stood up with a triumphant grin and grabbed the door handle. "And that, boys, is how you pick the lock to a secure facility with hairpins." With that she turned the doorknob and pulled open the door. However, she let out a yelp of surprise when a wave of small white objects came flooding out, completely burying her.
Domino picked up one of the objects and looked it over. "Are these… packing peanuts?" he asked, raising a brow. He then looked into the doors of the building and his eyes widened. Everything he could see, down the hallways, up the stairs, in the offices, everything was filled with packing peanuts. And Domino, being Domino, couldn't help himself. He started to laugh.
"What the hell is this?!" Hawk cried, wiggling her way out of the mountain of foam peanuts. "Thos good for nothing—" She stopped when she saw inside the doors. "DAMN IT! They must have filled the entire building!"
Canteen shook his head and Domino clutched his sides in a laughing fit.
"They, they, the whole building," Domino said in gasps between giggles.
Hawk and Canteen both glared at their laughing team mate. He was the only one who ever found Bolt and Jays pranks funny, even if he had to clean up the mess.
"Stop yer laughin'," Canteen said. "We gotta get to cleanin' up. We all know they ain't gonna do it." He didn't have to clarify for Hawk to know that he was taking about Bolt and Jay. They never had to clean up the mess their pranks made. They did, however, have to pay for any damage it caused.
Domino's laughing died down into giggles as he began to scoop up armfuls of packing peanuts and carry them to the dumpster.
"I swear, sometimes I think the kid is part hyena," Hawk muttered.
"No kiddin'," Canteen said with a sigh. He too then began to scoop up packing peanuts and carry them to the dumpster.
Hawk sighed and got to work as well. Something told her that it was going to be a very long day.
"Finally, we're done," Hawk said, wiping the sweat off her brow. They had spent six hours cleaning, and she could honestly say that if she never saw another packing peanut it would be too soon.
And then she heard Bun scream.
Hawk threw down her broom and sprinted to Bun's office. When she looked inside, her eyes widened and her mouth hung open. "Oh God, they didn't…"
"They did!" Bun cried. She was covered in packing peanuts and some type of horrible smelling black goo. "They hid a bomb in my desk drawer!"
Then down the hall they heard a muffled "BOOM!" followed by Canteen's cursing and Domino's hysterical laughter.
"Oh no, please no," Hawk groaned. Knowing Bolt and Jay, those bombs would be everywhere. And, as an added bonus, they would probably go off as soon as their hiding spot was revealed. Which would mean that they would have to set off every single one to get rid of them.
"I'm going to kill those two," Hawk muttered. "I swear, if it's the last thing I do I'm going to kill them."
Meanwhile, somewhere on a comfy couch with popcorn and soda, the two pranksters were watching their greatest prank yet unfold.
"Those hidden cameras were a great idea," Bolt said, grabbing another handful of popcorn.
"Damn right," Jay said with a light chuckle.
"I'm going to kill them," Hawk muttered on the TV screen. "I swear, if it's the last thing I do, I'm going to kill them."
Both boys seemed to pause and consider this before both of their faces broke out into a huge grin.
"Worth it," they said in unison, high fiving each other.
Best. Prank. EVER.
Final Thoughts: Actually pretty happy with this one. Could be better, but all in all it's not too bad. Back storied FTW!
