"Hey!" Nate yelled into the darkness, adrenaline temporarily driving back the constant tug of sleep. "Hoopa! Odette! Steven? Where the fuck are you?"

It was strange how easily Odile had woken up. She'd felt like such shit after that dreamscape battle, she was expecting to take a solid year to right herself again. But, no. She was up and at 'em. Listening to the Other People scream for her vessel. Who was still dead asleep beside her.
Odile shot a quick look in the direction of the other trainers, only to find the rest of them were still strung up and out. Even Noro and Alakazem, fresh out of that stupid dream battle, were still down and out. Did that mean she took Ice Punches to the gut for no fucking reason? Narrowing her eyes, she peered down at Odette's sleeping body.
"̶O̸.̸ ̷O̷d̶e̶t̷t̵e̸.̵ ̷C̷h̸i̵l̸d̴.̸ ̴V̶e̷s̴s̷e̵l̴,̵"̶ Odile called as she shook Odette's limp body. The latter groaned softly, prompting Odile to inhale.
"̴I̴'̵m̷ ̵n̴o̵t̴ ̴d̷o̷i̸n̴g̸ ̴t̸h̴i̴s̶ ̷a̸g̶a̷i̸n̴.̶ ̸I̴f̶ ̴y̵o̴u̵ ̷s̴t̴a̴r̴t̷ ̶t̸u̷r̵n̷i̴n̶g̶ ̸t̴o̶ ̸s̷t̴o̸n̷e̶,̵ I̸'̴m̸ ̴g̵o̷n̴n̵a̴ ̷d̴i̴s̶m̷e̵m̵b̴e̶r̸ ̵y̸o̷u̵ ̶m̵y̴s̸e̷l̵f̵.̵"̵
Another groan. The eldrith terror huffed. "̸F̴i̷n̸e̸.̵ ̷B̶e̶ ̷l̶i̷k̴e̴ ̸t̴h̵a̷t̸.̷"̵
She reached into her jacket pocket and pulled out Lululemon. She gave the rubber chicken a light squeeze, before grabbing it by the neck and proceeding to bash Odette over the head with it. The sound of the impact echoed through the realm. Odette jolted upright, eyes blazing, and without a moment's hesitation, she tackled Odile into the ground.
"HIT ME AGAIN, I'LL STRING YOU UP TOO," she screamed into her partner's face. Odile looked mostly unamused as she slowly ran her pointed tongue across her teeth.
"̴J̶o̸k̸e̶'̵s̶ ̵o̶n̴ ̶y̵o̶u̶ ̸b̴i̸t̶c̵h̸,̷ ̷I̷'̵m̴ ̷i̴n̸t̴o̸ ̶t̵h̸a̷t̸ ̴s̷h̸i̶t̵.̵"̵
Odette opened her mouth to let loose a string of curses, but her eye caught on the others slowly waking up. Her gaze then moved to the Undesireables, still out for the count. Her brow furrowed, and she stiffened to get a better look.
"Is this a prank? No fucking shot that didn't work. We don't have time for this."
