Rika maintained a calm expression throughout Stardust's meaningless tirade. In fact, she almost had difficulty repressing a smile.
How pathetic. We're right on time, Tempest. It's not out fault that she has nothing to do to spend time.
It seemed that the comments were directed at her. Unable to keep quiet, she loudly said, "Are you speaking to me? Last time I checked you were far from being in charge of this mission, and it is certainly not your place to berate anyone. Quite frankly, it's none of your business what I choose to do in my spare time. Stardust, we all know you're a great fighter, there's no need to try and prove it over and over. Please save it for when we need it: when we have to rely on one another during the mission. I do hope you understand."
Keeping a calm face, she watched Zacke as he approached Stardust. The whole thing was quite entertaining, indeed. When he had finished, she cast a water spell once again. Thank Hyne she had remembered to refine some more Water spells on the way to Balamb earlier.

Sym sighed at the end of Stardust's outburst, having already known that she'd say something like that. It was almost as though she were getting used to the constant yelling and insults that came from the other SeeD and had learned how to tune it out. That wasn't a very nice thing to do, but it saved Sym's ears from being blown off, ~And here I was, thinking that if I got here early she'd actually calm down and not scream at the rest of the team.~
From what I've seen, that WAS quiet.
True enough. Sym admitted with a small nod of her head. It could have been far worse.
"Thanks for the offer, Blaze, but I've already got a ticket," Smiling pleasantly, Sym shook her head at Blaze and got up from the bench, mentally going over her inventory. Alright, my gauntlets don't have a better upgrade yet, my magic's fully stocked thanks to Die-sha. . .
You're welcome, Lady.
. . . and I've got as many hi-potions as we ought to need. If not, we can refine some stuff. I think that's all, right?
You did lock the doors and let the dog out, so we should be fine. Die-sha answered, trying to be funny. It worked, and Sym snickered under her breath before stretching. She then waited for everyone else to board the train, not wanting to be alone in the same place as Stardust again.

"One day, you'll make a sensational drill sergeant!" Zacke whispered as he draped his arms over Stardust's shoulder. The pink head's temper had already been way past its limit and this oaf made it even worse. She didn't like it when she was mocked.
"You..." Stardust shoved Zacke forcefully away from her. He was going to get it.
"You get your filthy hands off me!!" Stardust exploded and suddenly punched Zacke in the face.

"You get your filthy hands off me!!" Stardust screamed at Zacke before ramming her fist into his face.
Blaze pressed her lips together and her eyes began to water. Soon, she was crying with laughter and rolling on the floor.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHHEEEHEEHEEHAHAHAHHA!!!!" Blaze howled. "YOU PUNCHED ZACKE! YOU REALLY DID! He's a SeeD for god's sake! You think that a punch would affect him.... at all!??! Now he knows your strength... and you can't use that to your advantage anymore... your stupidity really amazes me at times... seriously.. a punch!?!?"
Stardust is so stupid! I mean a punch. really. This proves that she's not what she says she is. I mean, if it were me, Zacke would be missing a body part. A PUNCH!!! that's the best she can do!

Tomoe watched as Infinity finally snapped, screaming at Mercutio and solidly punching him in the face. Then Blaze's laughter exploded.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHHEEEHEEHEEHAHAHAHHA!!!! YOU PUNCHED ZACKE! YOU REALLY DID! He's a SeeD for god's sake! You think that a punch would affect him.... at all!??! Now he knows your strength... and you can't use that to your advantage anymore... your stupidity really amazes me at times... seriously.. a punch!?!?" Blaze was on the ground, practically gasping for breath.
Tomoe opened her eyes and rose to her feet. "This was extremely entertaining, but shouldn't we be getting our tickets and head for Timber? We shouldn't be wasting time fighting amongst ourselves like this, or else Blaze might die of laughing at us." She lightly stretched, glancing at Infinity. "If you hit a fellow SeeD like that again, you could be thrown off the team, and I don't believe that someone as dedicated to the mission as you would like that." Tomoe's eyes flickered. And if you hit me, you might not really care whether you're thrown off the team because you'll be unconscious and eating from a tube.

As soon as Stardust withdrew her fist upon Zacke's face, Blaze's annoying laughter hung in the air.
"YOU PUNCHED ZACKE! YOU REALLY DID! He's a SeeD for god's sake! You think that a punch would affect him.... at all!??! Now he knows your strength... "
Stardust gave Blaze a cold stare as she chortled exaggeratedly at her.
"... and you can't use that to your advantage anymore... your stupidity really amazes me at times... seriously.. a punch!?!?" Blaze added some more.
Unfortunately, Stardust wasn't laughing. "How do you like a lightning arrow to your throat?" she hissed coldly, but her voice was quickly lost through Blaze's loud laughter.
Stardust tried to take a step towards Blaze when Tomoe stood up and gave her a warning. Somehow, the thought of being thrown out of the mission kept her from not holding back. She was about to shoot Blaze down with her Ciceronian.
/Calm down, Stardust.../ Diwata whispered.
Shut up! Go away! Angry she might be, she couldn't hide the fact that Tomoe had a point. She had to cool off.
She paused and scowled back at Tomoe. Blaze's laughter was ringing in her ears.
"Just shut the hell up!" Stardust shouted at Blaze, turning her gaze to the psycho. The insane laughter was getting into her.

"Hhmp... at fffirssst I thought I wwasss jussst acting ffooolisssh. Well, asss fun asss thiss iss... I believve we will missss the damn TRAAIN iff wwe keeep thiss up longer!!" Terry squeached in mild control temper. Eyes blaze and his breath was short and heaving.
Oh no... what have I done...? Terry thought. His voice, like nails against chalk but also very deep. Every few words a gurgle could be heard and he sounded likes tires sliding on asphalt. Terry heard his on voice and almost hurled his bile from his stomach...
He never wanted them to hear his voice but he knew it was inevitable. Terry was just so angry at his team mates. Acting like little children.
"AREE WWE DONE?!?" Terry yelled before stalking slowly on board, the conductor sliding away from him trying to get as much distance away but enough to receive the ticket Terry held out.

"Heh...nice arm Stardust." Zacke said coolly. It was as if he wasn't affected by that punch of her earlier. Making her look like a timid fighter that couldn't even hurt a fly. Stardust turned sharply at him.
I'll make him eat those words!!
"AREE WWE DONE?!?" Stardust paused quickly, startled by that loud outburst from behind. She span around to see who it was, to her surprises, it was Terry.
/Well, what do we have here? The mute guy can actually shout louder than you.../

Zacke looked back at Colum. "Nah, she just takes everything a little too serious. Not that I'm just letting this," he pointed to his black eye. "slide. She'll get what's coming to her. Now, you want to talk about weird..." he nodded his head toward Terry, then stepped up to the ticket booth to buy a ticket.

Stardust grunted and decided to drop it off. Her start upon Terry caused her temper to simmer down. Besides, she needed to find a place inside the train as well. All these pressures were making her sick.
After a long pause, she tried to head inside the train. She caught a glimpse of Colum whispering something at Zacke. It looked like it was about her due to the way Colum approached Zacke.
Stardust did nothing but flashed him an irritated look before totally disappearing inside the train. She got more things to worry about than these lowlifes.

Even from the spot she'd staked out in the train, Sym heard Terry's shout loud and clear. The voice was deep, as she'd expected, and also a little out of tune from disuse. Maybe, if Terry'd talk more, his voice wouldn't sound so . . . distinctive. I'll have to work on that one. But what'd make him actually talk in the first place? Must be something' . . .
As she thought, Sym had been making her way to the door outside, and her thoughts stopped short as she saw Zacke's face and the bruise that now resided there. Something inside clicked, and Sym turned her back just in time to hide her bout of giggles. Could have only been Stardust. Goddess, he did deserve it. I wish I could have seen the look on his face, and had a camera. Must be the stress that's making me laugh at this. Heh, better stop before he gets on. Wouldn't want to be laughing in his face, he's having enough fun already.
Sym shuffled away from the door and stood back where she'd originally dropped her stuff, her laughter dying away into the occasional snicker. Maybe now Zacke wouldn't egg Stardust on. . .
The fact that Mercutio laughed at his injury. "It's like he's half-raccoon or something," she said quietly. "Good look for him." Tomoe tilted her head to one side, sparing a glance at the Ninja. "I didn't think he'd get angry enough to yell like that."
/He sounded like a banshee./
"No, he doesn't. You sound like a banshee."
No, it doesn't!
/...No, no it doesn't./
Tomoe sighed. Between a fuming Infinity, a vengeful Mercutio, and her GF's comments, it was going to be a very long ride.
