"YOU PEOPLE BETTER HAVE one damn good explanation for this- this balderdash!" Mr. Olsen shouted at the six kids in his office, almost shaking in anger.

Julian was sitting on one of the two chairs in front of the desk, Amaya on its arm, Aviva on the chair beside it with Enzo next to her leaning his shoulder on her head, against her objections, and Sapphire and Maddox standing behind them.

Sapphire raised her eyebrows, "Okay Goldilocks, let's all calm down on the profanities."

"Stupid actions do not deserve nice words Miss Cain, now I want to know who is responsible for the complaints of aggression I have been receiving about water balloons," he stared at Enzo, "Mr. Moretti you have a reputation for having executed some rather questionable plans during the time you've been here."

"I do," Enzo replied, nodding with a smile.

Mr. Olsen gave Enzo an incredulous gaze, "That is not a good thing."

"Isn't it?" He frowned.

Maddox and Sapphire snickered at Mr. Olsen's face.

"You kids," he pointed at every single one of them, "have caused me more trouble then every other section of the school, more than the level fives of section four, more than that Hunter Verne himself."

"And it has been an honour," Sapphire nodded solemnly.

"Oh my god," Ricardo whispered.

Mr. Olsen became even redder than he had been a few seconds ago, "You know what, you- this- first the poop and now the water-"

"That is how a toilet works," Enzo nodded in approval.

The teenagers snickered while the adults eyed them in disbelief. Aviva shook her head with a small smile at his comment before pushing his arm off her head causing him to frown.

"Relax," Julian said to the three adults, "they were water balloons, not fireballs."

Sapphire sighed, "That would've been so cool."

Enzo nodded, "I know right."

"I'm sure we can find a way to make something similar in the lab," Amaya said with a pensive look.

Maddox spoke, "We could use the firework stuff we found last time."

"I have experience in making things explode," Aviva added with a nod.

"ARE YOU KIDS OUT OF YOUR MINDS?!" Mr. Olsen shouted and for a slight second, Sapphire really did believe the vein throbbing on his forehead was about to pop. "FIREBALLS?! I can't take this anymore, Mr. Isidro please inform these six teenagers of the activity happening in the following days, I need to take a walk. Miss Wright, would you like to accompany me?"

She shook her head, "No, this is quite interesting."

Mr. Olsen barely waited for her answer and in less than a second he was closing the door of his office behind him.

"For all the years I've known Mr. Olsen, never have I seen him so angry," Miss Wright said with an almost impressed look.

"Anyone would get angry with those six running around," Ricardo shook his head before looking back at the kids, "Back to the subject, since clearly the detentions you've all been having have no effect on your attitude and judgement problems-"

"Attitude and judgement problems?!" Sapphire slapped her hands on the desk while taking an offended expression, "Ricky, I will not-"

"Sapphire, sit your ass back down," Ricardo said, interrupting her, barely phased by her dramatic outburst, "as I was saying, a few teachers, Mr. Olsen and I have decided on something which should teach every student of Vela how to behave with others."

Aviva narrowed her eyes, "What's the something?"

"We will tell you," Ricardo moved towards the door and opened it before gesturing at the kids to get up and leave, "when we tell all the others. While you wait, you can go back to class peacefully like the young adults that you are."

Sapphire spoke, "Young adults seems a little-"

"Shush," Ricardo interrupted, "no talking."

She stuck out her tongue at him and walked out with the others.

"Can't, it'd interfere with Phase Three of my master plan," Enzo said, shaking his head.

"Your plan still isn't finished?!" Aviva exclaimed.

"Awesome!" Sapphire beamed.

Maddox glanced at her and smiled.

"Nope," Enzo answered, smiling.

Amaya gasped, "Is Jello involved in the third phase??"

Julian frowned, "Why would Jello be involved?"

"He involved laxative this morning," she replied.

Enzo frowned, "Don't say it like it's a bad thing."

Julian shrugged, "Fair enough."

"No, Jello isn't involved," Enzo answered her question before a thinking look appeared on his face, "although now I'm reconsidering."

"What are you kids still doing standing here!!" Ricardo's booming voice echoed in the hallway, startling them, "Go back to your classes!!!"
