In which it turns out that all the boys listened in on Crewel lecturing (Y/n) about why almost none of the boys at school are fit to date his daughter.
Their reactions range from satisfaction to loud yelling and screaming.
[This is Part (2/2); Part (1/2) can be found here.]
Of course all the boys had been listening outside the classroom during your little talk with Professor Crewel, your adoptive father. And most of them were enraged since Crewel's judgement had been harsh and rather cruel — and it hit right where it hurt the most for these boys. All boys that Crewel had mentioned stood outside the classroom coincidentally, each having intently listened to his comment about them.
Ace was screaming into his sleeve, his face as red as his hair. "He didn't even mention us, Deuce!" he hissed angrily while shooting his friend a glare. "He didn't even consider us fit for dating (Y/n)!"
Deuce looked sad, but not as angry as Ace did. Sighing, the blue-haired boy crossed his arms and turned away from his friend. "This is your fault," Deuce muttered with closed eyes, inhaling deeply in exasperation. "Why am I always grouped together with you automatically... It's not like we're one person!"
Riddle was mad as well; smoke came out of his ears. "I would never collar (Y/n)!" he yelled out, not caring that the two inhabitants of the classroom surely must have heard him. In his blind anger, he snapped at everyone who even dared to look at him strangely, his pen ready to collar everyone who was ready to test his patience.
Ace was the one to try his luck. "You would collar her, just because she's our friend," he sneered at his dorm leader.
Riddle's fists were shaking in utter fury, and even Ace shrank back and hid behind Deuce, who only had a worried frown on his face. "Shut up, or I'll collar you, Trappola!" Riddle yelled at the top of his lung, causing Trey to put a hand on his shoulder to calm his friend down.
Riddle lowered his pen and let out a heartwrenching sigh. Turning around, he shot Trey a grateful look. Trey had a small smile plastered on his face, happy and proud that he was one of the few who had not been insulted by their alchemy professor. Usually, people told him that he was boring — but at least boring brought him a pass for dating you. So, trying not to smile from ear to ear, Trey quietly and happily muttered, "Well, I got an okay."
Meanwhile, Cater was rather furious — just like Ace and Riddle. "I'm not addicted to MagiCam!" Cater cried out as he had to resist the urge of pulling out his phone and letting his feelings flow freely on MagiCam. His head looked like it was about to explode, worrying everyone in his near vicinity. Letting out a few whines, Cater pushed back his hair. "I haven't been on my phone for ten minutes already!"
Trey's lips quirked upwards. "Good job, Cater."
"Right?" Cater cried out playfully again. "It was hard!"
Leona had his arms crossed and his face was contorted into an unreadable frown. "Tsk, I'm not mad," he said, his voice as deep and calm as ever — yet, he exuded an aura that was so scary that no one aside from Ruggie dared to even look in his general direction.
Ruggie, fearless, began to laugh in the way he always did. "Leona, your ears are flattened," Ruggie cooed playfully as he poked at Leona's sides, drawing a few growls from the aggressive lion. Ruggie laughed louder when Leona bared his fangs at him, finally showing how irritated he really was. "You are mad~!"
Leona looked like he was about to pounce on Ruggie and tear the cackling hyena to shreds; still, Ruggie looked absolutely unbothered and carefree, which didn't sit well with Leona at all. Grabbing the hyena by his collar, the Savanaclaw dorm leader hissed, "I'll tear your throat out if you dare to spew such a lie again—"
Jack quickly stepped in, pushing Ruggie and Leona away from one another before one could kill the other. "Stop it, you two," Jack said gruffly.
"Well, I'm pretty happy with what Professor Crewel said!" Ruggie chimed while putting his hands behind his head, enjoying Jack's protection. Ruggie shot Leona a smug grin and wiggled his eyebrows suggestively. "He said a lot of nice things about me~"
"He was kind to me, too." Jack nodded sternly, but everyone could see the way his tail wagged back and forth at the speed of lightning; yet, no one really dared to comment on it. "But he's right. I'm not a lap-dog."
Ruggie let out a cackle. "You are when (Y/n) is around, though!"
Jack growled and shot his dorm leader a knowing look. "Leona, let's kill Ruggie," the wolf suggested.
Leona began to laugh in an evil way. "I'm in."
Azul, trying his best to keep up that professional businessman facade, was still as red as a tomato; his face was so hot that his glasses had begun to fog up, leaving him even more irritated than he already was. "How dare he say I'm unfit for dating (Y/n)!" he bellowed, his voice sounding unhinged with how it went up and down. The merman turned to Floyd and Jade, glaring at them. "You two, I understand! But me?! I'm— I'm just an innocent octopus!"
Jade rolled his eyes, very much amused by Azul's anger. "Sure," he said casually, brushing him off. "Just as how much Floyd is an angel."
"I am an angel!" Floyd cried out with a large pout on his face. He looked quite hurt — that was until a giant grin appeared on his lips. "An angel of death~"
Azul scoffed and flicked his wrist to wave the playful eel off, clearly not in a mood for jokes right now. Pushing his glasses up again, the octopus let out an exasperated breath. "Anyway," he muttered to Jade, "we need to think up something, so that he allows us to be with (Y/n)."
Jade nodded, humming in agreement. "What do you suggest we do?"
Azul rubbed his chin and began to think about how he could manipulate Crewel into allowing him and his friends to spend time with you. It wasn't an easy task with how stubborn and strict the professor was — but this was Azul we were talking about. Eventually, a little gasp escaped his lips and his gaze snapped upward to meet Jade's. "How quickly can you get me 101 puppies?" Azul asked with a giant grin on his lips.
"Easy." An eerie smile appeared on Jade's face as he bowed gracefully. "I'm one hell of an eel, after all."
Kalim had a little pout on his face as he ignored the chaos going on around him, the other boys either screaming or crying their souls out like dejected puppies. Kalim, a little bit disheartened, scratched the back of his neck and let out a small huff. "Jamil, what does he mean with me being naive?" he asked his servant, his eyebrows furrowed slightly.
Jamil quirked an eyebrow in surprise before simply replying, "You're easy to fool."
Kalim gasped. "I'm not easy to fool!" the dorm leader cried out loudly and shot Jamil a slightly angered look.
Jamil merely sighed while rubbing his eyes. "Your shoelaces are undone," he muttered under his breath.
"Oh, thanks for telling me!" Kalim chimed politely as he lowered his gaze to his shoes, even bending down to grab his shoelaces and tie them up again. Yet, his fingers weren't able to find strings; eventually, he found out that his footwear didn't even have shoelaces in the first place. Gasping, he shot up again to shoot Jamil a surprised look. "Wait— I'm wearing sandals!"
Vil looked slightly irked as he threw his hair over his shoulder. "If I dated (Y/n), I'd make sure to take good care of my potato," he said, scoffing. "Who does he think I am."
"Yes but—" Rook choked out, and he was practically jumping up and down in his place with how dramatically sad he seemed. He had his hand placed on his forehead and the other one limply hanging from his body. "Why won't the professor let me be with mon amour?! I'd treat (Y/n) like the sun!"
Epel shot Rook a sly grin. "Maybe that's the problem, Rook." The blond in question immediately gasped in utter horror at the small boy's remark, and he clutched his heart as if he was wounded. Rook sank into Vil's arms, who only reluctantly caught his vice dorm leader. Epel rolled his eyes and turned away from his two fellow dorm members to mutter to himself, "Also! Why does he say that I couldn't harm a fly?! I can very well harm— Jack or Leona!"
Vil clicked his tongue. "Rook, hold the potato back before he can injure himself."
Rook immediately rose to his feet and sauntered over to Epel. "Oui, Roi du Poison."
Idia's hair was flickering wildly due to how angry he was. "I don't have scurvy!" the boy hissed under his breath.
Ortho held a fire-extinguished ready should his big brother's feelings boil over for once. Sighing, the small boy shot Idia a slightly sceptical look. "But you do have an allergy to socialising," Ortho said so innocently that it didn't seem like an insult at all.
"Quiet, Ortho," Idia hissed and clasped his hand over Ortho's speaker, paranoidly looking at the door to the classroom. "You don't need to tell the professor more flaws about me."
"Possessive? Possessive?!" Malleus drawled angrily while his right eye twitching slightly. There was smoke coming out of the nostrils of his nose, and his eyes were glowing a bright green. "I'm not possessive! I just want to spend time with my Child of Man!"
Lilia floated up to calm his poor little baby; wrapping an arm around his shoulder, Lilia whispered, "Oh, my poor Malleus..." The dragon fae immediately buried his face in Lilia's shoulder to let out a long and heartwrenching sigh. Lilia merely shook his head, a giant smile on his lips. "Don't weep, Malleus... Smile, like me! The professor said I was mysterious, and being mysterious is nothing bad. So I'm really happy about that~!"
Malleus let out a little scoff, not really feeling better with how much Lilia was gloating about his success. The dorm leader slowly raised his gaze to look at the human boy peacefully sleeping while standing on his feet with only his torso leaning against Sebek. "Silver was one of the few who wasn't insulted..." Malleus muttered with a pout on his face, appearing like a small child. "You can consider yourself lucky, Silver..."
Silver woke up when Sebek nudged his shoulder to tell him that the young master had spoken to him. Sleepily rubbing his eyes, Silver croaked out, "Huh? What happened?" When his vision cleared up again, he gazed around the crowded corridor to find other students crying and weeping while other were complaining about something. Silver furrowed his eyebrows as he turned to his friends again. "Why are people yelling and crying?"
Sebek, with tears in his eyes, loudly barked, "I'm not yelling or crying!"
Meanwhile, the two occupants inside the classroom had ceased their conversation to instead listen in on the chaos that went on outside of the room. Crewel looked amused since the chaos outside was another proof of how all of them were rather intrusive on your privacy — you were much better off with him, anyway. No boyfriend needed if you had an amazing father.
Clicking your tongue, you muttered, "They're loud."
Crewel hummed with a satisfied smile on his lips. "Another reason why you shouldn't date any of them, pup."
