Life in Parenting:Chapter 2:
Flug was 90 precent sure he was done for.
Why did he had to get this job? Why couldn’t he remain in New Jersey and be a physics teacher like his mother wanted him to? Sure, beign a teacher wasn’t the most successful career,but at least he didn’t have to worry about whenever or if he’s going to live..
And he certainly didn’t wanted to become a parent! Well,foster parent, but that’s not the point!
He loved children. He really did,but he cannot take care of them. One time he babysitted one of his grandchildren and thought him how to run a bike. He was the only limping kid in class.
He didn’t know why Black Hat would hire him. Of course ,he was a good scientist, but he didn’t really knew why Black Hat would want to keep him around more than necessary. Actually, the man…the demon, often tried to avoid him.
He couldn’t really blame him. I mean,he did wore a bag to cover his face,which was weird. Flug took a deep breath and turned around and gave the twin who were following him the best strict look he got.
“Okay, listen. Mister Black Hat can be,well…easily irritated. Let me do the talking, and be on your best behavior, please” Dr. Flug . The twins looked at echother and flashed their wide smirks before turning to Flug again.
“Why do you mean by ‘best behaviour ’ ” M.D. said making quotes in the air. Flug norrowed his eyes and placed his hands on his hips.
“The opposite of everything you want to do” Flug said . M.D and his sister rolled their eyes ,but still smiled at the scientist. He was nice enough. They liked him.
“Okay,well…here goes nothing ” Flug said sighing. He blamed Demencia for this. He really did.
“The door is open” the gruff voice said behind the door. This was Black Hat’s version of 'come in’.
“S-Sir? I-it’s me” Flug said in his usual nervous voice,while he entered the large office. Black Hat was sitting at his desk,filled with paper work,but immediate stopped when he was Dr. Flug and the twins.
Confusion was wrote all over the demons face . Since when children could enter his building?
“Dr. Flug, may I ask what’s the reason of this visit?” Black Hat asked,his eyes never leaving the two sibilings, who started right back at him with an unstable smile on their faces. He had to admit,he was smiling the same way when he was younger. Mostly just to scare people off.
“W-Well, you see sir,u-um..” Flug starting to stutter, and Black Hat could only hold back a smile. Dr. Flug was charming in every possible way,and he didn’t even realize it.
“We’re his kids,actually!” The purple and white haired young girl said.
Black Hat felt like a bucket of ice cold water was beign poured on him. Fug? Married?! Having children?! This HAD to be a joke. A cruel joke someone above played on him. This little girl was lying to him. He knew, she had to lie to him.
His stomach dropped at the thought of someone else holding Flug. Or kissing him,giving him love ,or the appreciation he deserves. If there was a person who should kiss,hug,appreciate and love Flug,it should be him!
When he finally received his voice back,Black Hat said:
“I-I didn’t realized you were married …” Flug was shocked,hearing the first stutter his boss made. What was that on his face? Was that sadness? No. He was seeing things. He really needed to get his goggles cleaned up.
“What?! Oh,no sir! I’m not married,who would want to marry me?! They are experiments!” Black Hat was going the ignore the comment of 'who would want to marry me’ becouse, believes it or not,Flug would be husband material,but paid fully attention to him.
“Experiments? Dang, dad,tell us how you really feel” the boy said faking offendece “Anyway, Black Hat,right? Nice to meetcha, name’s M.D and she’s my sister Psycha ” He said gesturing to himself and the girl who waved at him. He awkwardly waved back and turned his attention to the doctor.
“Flug,explain” Black Hat through gritted teeths. He knew he was scaring the doctor, but something in him snapped. Just snapped. Something he couldn’t explain. The kids didn’t paid much attention to them anymore, as they started to explore his office. M.D. was more interested in the weapons that stoop proudly on his wall,katanas, maces, lances and axes,but Psycha looked at the paintings on the wall.
It was Black Hat and the devil himself. Simon was holding the new pitchfork Black Hat got for his birthday. She was amazed by that ,he could tell.
Okay,he needed to do two stuff:
1) Talk to Dr.Flug about his feelings, because after the scare he had,he needed to tell him.
After Flug was done explaining this mess,he walked over to Psycha and admired the paintings too. He didn’t really looked or admired them,they were just there to make the room more allure. But he could see why she was interested. The lines were carefully drawned,and the harmony of color was placed carefully.
“I like this painting too. It’s well drawn. I revived Da Vinci to paint it for me” He said. Psycha nodded and smiled,looking at the fine piece of work.
“Yeah, It’s nice, but I think a darker pallet of colors would’ve been better,since the two of you are In hell. It would make the fire stand out more,and it would seem more realistic, I think” She said shrugging.
Black Hat took one more look at the portrait,and indeed she was right. If the colors were darker, the flames would see brighter. Huh. Clever little thing she was.
“How about you go and get ice-cream or something?” Black Hat snapping his fingers, making 20 dollars appear, the kids seemed excited and snatched the bills from his hands with a quick thanks,before running away.
“Sir,what should we do?! They think I’m their father!” Flug said dramatically swinging his arms in the air.
“Actually, Dr.Flug,I think it’s quite lovely. Beside,what can you do?” Black Hat said with a light amusement in his voice.
Dr,Flug didn’t respond, until his goggles winded,and his breath was cut off his chest.
“M-Maybe we should….destroy them?”
A green energy surrounded Flugs body and slammed him into the wall,not enough to hurt him,but enough to make him wince. Black Hat stomped his way to him and slammed his hand on the wall next to his face.
“Don’t you EVER. In your life. Say.that.again ” Black Hat said and snapped his fingers ,the green energy releasing him. “Now scram. I don’t want to look at you right now ” He said with a tone of….disappointment?
“Y-Yes sir” Flug said and ran out of the office.
Maybe Black Hat shouldn’t kill Demencia after all.
