Chapter Thirteen: Infiltrate Wonderland:
Takeru hated this part. Usually, he went along with his fatherï¿½s plans, but this was the worst in his eyes.
ï¿½Why do we have to do this?ï¿½ he asked.
ï¿½Shut up and zip my dress,ï¿½ Hiroji ordered. Takeru reluctantly zipped up the blue dress. The other young hunter straightened it out.
ï¿½Why arenï¿½t you getting dressed?ï¿½ he asked.
ï¿½I will,ï¿½ Takeru complained, rolling his eyes. He pulled on the new yellow dress that his father bought from the last town, frowning as he zipped up.
ï¿½Seriously through,ï¿½ the boy complained. ï¿½Why do we have to do this?ï¿½
ï¿½ï¿½Cause,ï¿½ Hiroji answered, putting on his wig. ï¿½We are the only ones who can pass as girls in our camp.ï¿½
ï¿½Not that,ï¿½ Takeru said. ï¿½Why are we on this hunt, anyway?ï¿½ His fellow hunter eyed him.
ï¿½Are you dense?ï¿½ Takeru shook his head.
ï¿½No,ï¿½ he said. ï¿½Itï¿½s just pointless now.ï¿½ Hiroji tilted his head at him.
ï¿½Seriously, are you mental? We have to catch the bunny!ï¿½
ï¿½Look,ï¿½ Hiroji snapped. ï¿½Donï¿½t
ask questions! Finish getting dressed already!ï¿½
ï¿½Yeah, yeah,ï¿½ Takeru grumbled. He put on his blonde wig. I feel so stupid doing this, he thought, staring in the mirror. With a little make-up, the girl-like boys were ready to go. Hiroji and Takeru headed down the dirt road.
ï¿½You remember the plan, right?ï¿½ the boy in blue asked.
ï¿½Yeah, yeah,ï¿½ Takeru muttered in his suffocating yellow dress. ï¿½Go up to the gate, get the key, unlock said gate, and go inside.ï¿½
ï¿½You do all of the talking,ï¿½ he added.
ï¿½Very good,ï¿½ the ï¿½girlï¿½ in blue said. Takeru sighed and rolled his eyes. Isnï¿½t that how it always goes? He still didnï¿½t see the point.
ï¿½Now remember,ï¿½ Hiroji said. ï¿½These clothes are sprayed with a special musk to fool the gate. Not only do we look like girls, we smell like them too--underneath. Got me?ï¿½
ï¿½Yes, yes,ï¿½ Takeru grumbled. They made it to the gate in ten minutes. Wakabaï¿½s double woke when she heard footsteps.
ï¿½Good morning, ladies,ï¿½ she greeted them. ï¿½How can I help you today?ï¿½ Hiroji cleared his throat and got into character.
ï¿½My sister and I would like entrance into your city,ï¿½ ï¿½sheï¿½ said, sounding quite ladylike.
ï¿½Okay,ï¿½ the Doorway Girl said. ï¿½Just what are your names?ï¿½
ï¿½Sylvia,ï¿½ Hiroji answered. ï¿½And this is my sister, Ruriko.ï¿½ Takeru bowed his head. Wakabaï¿½s clone scanned both ï¿½girls.ï¿½ Takeru held his breath though Hiroji remained calm. The Doorway Girl perked up.
ï¿½The potion, key, and cookies are on the left,ï¿½ she said.
ï¿½Thank you, miss!ï¿½ ï¿½Sylviaï¿½ said with a bow. Takeru bowed and followed his ï¿½sisterï¿½ to the secret grassy spot. While they got to work, the Doorway Girl made her own report.
ï¿½There are two of them here,ï¿½ she whispered telepathically. ï¿½What should I do?ï¿½
ï¿½Leave them for now,ï¿½ a female guard answered in her head. ï¿½Letï¿½s observe them.ï¿½
ï¿½Okay,ï¿½ Wakabaï¿½s double whispered. The ï¿½girlsï¿½ returned to the gate, now as miniatures. Hiroji used the key to unlock the gate.
ï¿½Have a good time,ï¿½ the Doorway Girl said. She closed the door behind them as the hunters infiltrated the sexy city.
