> John: Help Karkat.
jade! i need a cup of water!
hang on, i'm coming!!
The caretaker arrives swiftly with a plastic mug and makes Karkat drink while you soothe his chest and back.
Trolls are extremely sassy. Or in this case, extremely idiotic. The moment Karkat could breathe, he gives Vriska a rude gesture.
And she starts to imitate his choking.
Well, fuck you too!!!!!!!!
And your dum8 grey 8lood!
FUCK YOU FUCK YOU SHUT UP FUCK UP SHUT THE FUCK UP!
> John: Intervene.
Oh no, this is not going well. You know about the trolls' weird caste system based on the colour of their blood. And you also know what is the colour of Karkat's blood from the registry handed to you from your principal. That is probably why he reacting explosively (again). Time to break this up.
vriska, karkat, stop that!
vriska, it's fine if karkat likes his symbol rendered in grey. grey is the colour of troll skin, so... it kinda fits!
look at me.
i have a green symbol, and i have neither green blood nor skin.
in fact, my blood is a bright red!
so it's okay.
Karkat looks at you in surprise. Vriska grins at you. It is a cute (and malicious) kind of grin.
Okaaaaaaaay. I will 8e friends with Karkat!
that's good, vriska.
and karkat, you should stop swearing at people. it's not nice.
karkat, answer mister egbert properly.
now, you two sit here, while we wait for more of your friends to come.
Vriska obediently takes a seat on the bench beside Karkat. Karkat empties the mug and hands it back to the caretaker. He turns away from Vriska and resumes enjoying the lollipop.
You walk back to the door and pretend to be looking out, but you continue watching them from the corners of your eyes. You see Karkat giving Vriska the other half of the remaining lollipop, which she accepts. It looks like they have made up fine!
> Karkat: Give Vriska the rest of your lollipop.
What? No! Seriously, why on Earth would you do that. You love this lollipop. You change your mind about humans being dumb. Human sweets are the best. You are not giving up this lollipop ever. Especially not to--
Why are you handing it to the crazy bitch beside you? You do not want to do that!
She takes the candy from your hands and whispers a "thank you, low8lood
" in your ears. You hate Vriska Serket. (You would add, "platonically", except that you are not at the age to quite understand the concupiscent kind of hate yet.) She is a huge bitch.
