"So...let me get this straight." Reika muttered, rubbing the temple of her nose with her index finger and thumb, "You guys heard screaming. So you went a followed it. You found Zetsu, here," Reika did not realise she was pointing at nothing, "eating the conductor of a crappy band. You make Zetsu promise not to eat more people. You hear people in a nearby tent which conveniently was in the area. You go and blow up the inside of the tent, killing a few people and scaring the rest off."
Deidara, whose head was slammed against the table, looked at his niece, "For the hundredth time, Reika-chan, YES! Why does this not enter your brain?"
Reika glared at Deidara, with a look of 'oh hell no'.
"In case you haven't noticed, blondie, I happen to be stuffing inside of flesh. Have you forgotten I have no organs? That's why it can't enter my brain, you prat, because I DON'T F-ING HAVE ONE!!" Reika shouted, standing on the coffee table, glaring down at Deidara, who just looked up, sweat dropping.
But the whole 'trying to scare Deidara' plan failed miserable when Zetsu merged out the ceiling directly in front of Reika and snapped at her with his fly trap like extensions. Reika screamed and lost her footing on the coffee table, crashing to the ground with loud thud.
"That's the second time!" Zetsu laughed to himself as he merged back into the ceiling and appeared sitting on a nearby sofa, looking really proud of himself.
Reika groaned, hoisting herself to a sitting position on the floor and rubbed her back whispering, "I hate you Weed!"
Deidara continued to look confused and then he finally spoke, "Uh, so, what was this argument about, un?"
Sighing, Reika clambered to her feet and lay down on the sofa opposite Zetsu, keeping a really close eye on him, "I am just a little annoyed that you did not bring any blown up parts back."
Confused, Deidara sighed, "What do you mean?"
"Well, instead of destroying them and letting them go to waste, you could have brought them back here, so I could use them in my project. Surely there must have been some dainty fingers, or slender legs, or green eyes?"
"To be honest, Reika-chan, I was not really paying much attention. I just blew up the tent and left. Because watching Zetsu eat remaining parts is actually pretty disturbing." Deidara explained, shrugging his shoulders.
"At least they were tasty." Zetsu grinned, licking his lips as if there were still morsels of flesh left on them, "Yum yum!"
Reika and Deidara pulled disgusted faces before going silent.
"Ok, I'm outta here." Deidara muttered, getting to his feet and leaving to go to his room.
"Me too." Zetsu smiled, "I'm still a little peckish!" he chuckled before merging into the seat and God knows where
That left Reika alone, feeling slightly queasy from Zetsu's disgusting habits. Aya had left with Konan to go and hang up some posters around the villages, Sasori locked himself away with his puppets, to stop anyone from personalising them for a 'child friendly' event. Kisame and Itachi were out goodness knows where, Kakuzu was probably still sulking about the clothing incident, and as for everyone else, Reika didn't really care too much.
"Well...I guess I am a little sleepy after making those outfits. They were pretty tough." she said to herself, but before her eyes shut, she heard lots of swearing and a loud pop come from Hidan's room. Reika sat bolt upright on the sofa, wondering whether to go and check on Hidan, to see what was going on, but when she heard Hidan cursing about pieces of rubber, she rolled her eyes, "As if he is actually practising balloon modelling..." then she lay down and closed her eyes.
Suddenly, Reika felt a massive weight land on her stomach, forcing her back into conciousness, "Oof!" she grunted, as her eyes snapped open.
Sitting on her was Hidan, in a much brighter mood, smiling down at her, "Good to hear from ya, you lazy cow!" he chuckled before waving something in front of her.
Reika growled slightly in annoyance before observing the item closely, "Is that...a balloon model?" she asked, touching it with the tip of her finger.
"Hell yeah it is!" Hidan held the creation in front of him, "It's supposed to be a poodle, or whatever, but it ended up looking like a dead person, and I kinda like that design better.
Sweat dropping, Reika tried to thrust Hidan's weight off of her, but it was no use, "Yeah, it's very nice..." she took in a deep breath, "But do you think you can let me go now? I would very much like to be able to feel my feet again."
Hidan laughed, "Ah, Reika, you're a laugh!" he continued to laugh, as Reika continued to glare at him.
But at that point, help came as Aya and Konan returned to the hideout. When they heard Hidan's laughing, they turned to see what was so amusing, but when they saw Hidan sitting on top of Reika, playing around with a balloon model, they pretended not to see anything and walked off, their eyes slightly wider than usual.
"Hey!" Reika shouted, "Little help here? Maybe?" she sighed and slumped her hand over the edge of the sofa as the two girls left into their rooms.
"Reika-senpai?" an irritating voice called out, "Oh where is Reika-senpai? Tobi needs to show her something."
Reika's eyes widened, and then she screwed them up again, Oh God no! Please don't let him save me! Anyone but him find me!
Hidan clearly noticed Reika's desperation, so he called out, "Yo, Tobi! Here she is!" he stood up, allowing Reika to pull in a desperate breath of air, "I. Hate. You!" she hissed, as Tobi came running into the front room.
"Same goes to you." Hidan grinned, before escaping from whatever wrath Reika had to share.
"Senpai!" Tobi cheered, yanking Reika off the sofa and onto the floor, "Get up, get up! Tobi wants to show you something." he grabbed Reika's wrist and dragged her forward across the floor.
Reika's eyes were half closed in annoyance as she felt the carpet begin to burn her fabricated flesh, "Great." she muttered.
