SOR: Love Triangle Series - Episode 8

Axel, Blaze, Max, Adam and Skate were all over at the Hunter's apartment having a Chinese takeaway meal together. After defeating Mr X and saving the city for the umpteenth time, the gang decided that once a month, they would all meet together. They would have a different meal each time, and catch up on what was happening in each of their lives.

Axel and Max had decided to open up a Dojo in the city, specialising in Martial Arts and Wrestling. Blaze was still working as a freelance private investigator, and training in her spare time. Adam had been promoted to the rank of Captain at the local Police Dept, and was in charge of leading new recruits in their training to become the next generation of law enforcers. Skate was still at school, and with his bro riding him to get good grades, he would be going onto college to study further (what in, I'm not sure).

As a change to their usual meetings, Axel had brought one other person with him, his 18 year old cousin Becky.

*Door bell ringing*

Adam: Hmmm, that must be Axel. Skate, go and answer the door, will you?

Skate: Why do I have to answer the door?

Adam: Because my rank is Captain, and you always have to do what your Captain says.

Skate: But I'm not in the Police Forc....

Adam: Just go already!

Max: I can go, if you want.

Adam: No, that's alright. As guests to the Hunter household, it is our sole duty to cater to all your needs. I'm setting the table, and Skate is going to go open the door, RIGHT?

Skate: Gezz.....alright! I was in the middle of doing my homework, but I'm sure I can stop right in the middle of my sentence to go and answer the door! You know, since you've become promoted to captain, you've been a right pain in the ass, you know that?

Adam: You do know you're still small enough for me to put you over my knee, don't you?

Skate: Just you try it, big bro! I'll make you regret those words in no time at all!

Adam: Oh, really?

Skate: Yeah, REALLY!

Adam: ORLY?

Skate: YARLY!!

Blaze: Will you two knock it off!! If none of you are going to go, then I'LL do it. If it was up to you two, Axel would probably grow a beard by the time you decided which one of you would go to open the damn door!

*Blaze heads over to the front door and opens it*

Blaze: Hi Axel, come on in. Everyone’s waiting for you.

Axel: What took you so long? I've been waiting out here for over a minute! Any longer, and I might've grown a beard or something!

????: It's very nice to meet you Miss Fielding! I've heard so much about you!

Blaze: Ohhh! Hi! What's your name?

Axel: This here's my sister's kid, Rebecca.

Rebecca: ACTUALLY, I prefer to be called Becky. I’m surprised you don’t remember me, Miss Fielding!

Blaze: Remember you? You know, now that you mention it, you do look kinda familiar…

Becky: Don’t worry about it right now. I’ll tell you more later! *winks*

Blaze: There’s something a tad unusual about that girl.

Axel: Tell me about it! You seem to be the only person she’s opened up to since we got here! Let’s go through.

Blaze: Right.

Axel, Blaze and Becky move into the living room, where everyone else was sitting.

Skate: Whoa! Who's she?

Becky: SHE has a name, short stuff! My name is Becky, and I'm here to join your little gathering!

Axel: My sis is out of town on a business trip, and I got lumbered with the little missy here for a few days.

Becky: I'll be 18 in 2 months, uncle! I'm virtually an adult!

Axel: Virtually isn't the same as actually, Becky!

*Adam sneaks up behind Axel, and slides in between him and Becky*

Adam: As an upholder of the law, I think it's commendable that Miss Rebecca is following age restrictions to the letter. I suggest that in 2 months time, we celebrate her eventual ascension into womanhood! *wink!*

*Axel pushes Becky away from Adam*

Axel: I don't care if you've just been promoted to captain, if you go ANYWHERE near my cousin, they’ll probably have to send me to jail for what I do to you!

Max: Wow Becky, you have really soft skin! What kind of moisturiser do you use?

Becky: Well, it's not a really special cream or anything....

*Axel jumps in and pushes Becky away from Max*

Axel: You may be my business partner, but if you so much as STROKE her soft skin, I'm gonna have to look for a new partner!

Max: But I was only.....

Axel: I KNOW what you THOUGHT you was doing!

Skate: You know, I was a key part of the downfall of Mr X! I was right there on the front line, kicking ass and taking names, all in a day's work for the legendary Skate Hunter!

Becky: Really? From looking at you, I wouldn't have guessed! You are kinda cute though...

*Axel jumps in and pushes Becky away from Skate*

Axel: I don't want to have to hurt you kid, but if you mess with her, I'll mess with you. Permanently!

Skate: Wha? Are you kidding me?

Axel: When it comes to family, I don't kid around. Ever.

Becky: So, how do you keep in such great shape Miss Fielding?

Blaze: You don’t have to call me Miss! Blaze is just fine. And to answer your question, I regularly train at your uncle’s dojo, just to keep my skills in tip top condition and as sharp as possible. Why do you ask?

*Axel jumps in and pushes Blaze away from Becky*

Axel: I thought you told your mother that you would behave yourself while you were with me!

Becky: What? You didn't REALLY believe what I said in front of Mom, did you?

Adam: Yo guys! Everything is ready in the dining room! Hustle!

Everyone moves into the dining room. As Becky goes to sit down, Axel, Adam and Skate scramble to grab the seat nearest to her. Blaze sits on the other side of the table.

Becky: Blaze! Can I sit next to you?

Blaze: Sure. There’s plenty of room on this side, apparently.

The guys look on in disbelief as Becky gets up and goes around to the other side of the table, where she sits down and shuffles her chair right next to Blaze’s. Utterly defeated, the guys go and sit down in their respective chairs around the table, while Axel picks a chair on the opposite side of Becky and Blaze. He gives Adam, Max and Skate all a sinister look as the Chinese food is handed out.

After they had eaten their fill of noodles, sweet & sour pork, dumplings and fortune cookies (most of which foretold of rather grizzly deaths), Blaze decided to chat with Becky a while.

Blaze: So, Becky, how long has it been now? 5 years?

Becky: It’s been about 6 years, 4 months, 1 week and 3 days since we last saw each other. Give or take 3 hours 5 minutes and 42 seconds.

Blaze: Ohhhhhhh Kay. Well then, how has your studies been going? Axel was telling me you were interested in becoming a Police Officer?

Becky: Yeah, I’ve been getting perfect grades on all the written and physical tests.

Blaze: That’s very impressive! I’m sure you’ll make an excellent Police Officer someday!

Becky: I suppose, but to be quite honest, I’d rather be a freelance P.I like you Blaze!

Blaze: Huh? Why is that?

Becky: Because being a police officer isn’t much fun. I’m sure you get much more interesting cases in your line of work, right?

Blaze: Well, sometimes, but some jobs I do can become a lot more dangerous. You would have to spend a lot of time as a regular officer before you could even consider becoming a P.I.

Axel: Uhh, Becky? When did you get the idea to become a Private Investigator? Does your Mom know about this?

Becky: Are you kidding me? She’d go ballistic if I told her anything about this! She has a hard time as it is with the fact that I said I was gonna join the Police Force!

Axel: Well frankly, I can’t blame her! Law enforcement is not an easy job! The streets are dangerous, and you could get injured or even killed!

Becky had a lustful, gushy look on her face as moved right next to Blaze and grabbed her arm.

Becky: Well, I’m sure I’ll be just fine when I have Blaze with me, right Blaze?

*Adam sprayed the mouthful of Cool-ade he had in his mouth at that moment. Max choked on a prawn cracker, while Skate just looked on in disbelief. *

Blaze: W-w-wha? What are you talking about?

Becky: What am I talking about? I’m talking about the fact that you said you were going to make me your partner when I got older.

Blaze: P-partner?! I don’t remember saying anything like that!

Becky: Of course you did! When I was only a little girl, you said that when I got older, you would make me your partner!

Blaze: That hardly counts as a binding contract!

A disappointed look crept across Becky’s face

Blaze: Becky, you seem like a nice kid. If I trained you, and then you went and got yourself hurt, I would be responsible!

Becky: If you care about me so much, why don’t you train me to be as good as you!

Axel: BECKY!! That’s enough! Why don’t you just give up! This is not something that you can just keep pestering Blaze about, until she changes her mind!
Becky: Stay out of this Axel! The way I see it, if I’m trained by the guys that defeated the Legendary Mr X, wouldn’t that be better than just leaving me to my own devices on the streets?

Axel: If you’re not on the streets, then there won’t be a problem, will there, right Adam?

Adam: Wha? Ummm, well actually……

Blaze: You know, Becky does have a point

Axel gives her a disapproving look

Blaze: Don’t look at me like that! If I train her, at least she will be able to take care of herself, instead of having to rely on others as much.

*Becky’s eyes lit up*

Becky: You mean you’ll train me?

Blaze: Sure. We’ll set some time when you and I are free, and I can show you the basics.

Becky: Oh my god! I love you so much Blaze!

Axel: What da hell? Blaze?! You’re supposed to back ME up here!

Blaze: Axel, this isn’t something that’s just gonna go away! Can’t you see how dedicated Rebecca is to this?

Axel scratched his head for a moment, frustrated that the situation was not going the way he was expecting. He turned to the others for support.

Axel: C’mon guys! One of you must agree with me on this!

Max: Well I kinda think it’s a good idea. Once she learns from Blaze, she’ll be unstoppable!

Axel: Oh be quite you! Adam! Buddy! Pal! You got my back right?

Adam: Quit the buddy-buddy talk Axel! I can see right through you! Besides, I’m with Blaze on this one! Having another fighter like Blaze can only be a good thing in the long run. She’ll become a much better officer as well as a result. It’s win-win.

Axel: Pfft. Skate? You’re probably gonna support your bro right?

Skate: Damn right! Becky will be awesome if she trains with Blaze! Why would you wanna stand in the way of that?

There was a long pause.

Axel: You know what, I don’t care anymore. You can all do what you want. I’m going home now Becky. If you don’t wanna be left behind, grab your jacket.

Becky: Fine Uncle Pushy! You know, for a grown man, you’re pretty childish!

Axel: Meh. See you guys next month.

*Max, Adam & Skate chuckled to themselves*

Becky: Thank you so much guys! Especially you Blaze!

Blaze: Think nothing of it! I’m just happy to help you out as much as I can!

Becky: I’m really gonna look forward to our first training session. I’ll wear something really special as well!

Blaze: I wouldn’t recommend that. Just wear something casual that’s comfortable. I also want you to know that I’m a pretty hard task-master. I’m not gonna hold back, you understand?

Becky: Oh, of course! I wouldn’t have it any other way! I want you to work me VERY hard!

Blaze: ………? Ahh……Ooooookay then. Take care Becky. I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Blaze moves in to hug Becky, and is greeted with a huge kiss, right on the lips! Blaze was frozen on the spot, her body a wash with heat. Becky was in no way holding back, playfully teasing Blaze’s tongue with her own.

After about what seemed like an eternity, Becky broke of the kiss. A sliver of saliva strayed from their lips.

Becky had a very satisfied look on her face as she sauntered out of the door. She gave Blaze one last glance over her shoulder, licked her lips, and walked to the door.

Everyone had been watching Becky the entire time, including Axel. After she left the room, they all turned to look at Axel. All he could do was shrug his shoulders. Then everyone turned to look at Blaze. Blaze could barely hide her embarrassment.


Stay tuned for part 2!
