    Ivan always had a love-hate relationship with teachers. On one hand, class bored him to no end. It was that mind-numbing kind of boring, the boring that would slowly kill your brain cells instead of teaching you and make you truly question if jumping out the window was really such a bad idea. Well-- he could fly, but that was besides the point! The point was it was tedious.

    Despite such feelings, though, he always came early. In fact, he'd come quite a bit early and wait. Many would at first glance pass this as.. true dedication to the craft. But no, oh no. This was out of a love for making any teacher he had regret taking up the job in the first place through a series of pranks. Of course, Ivan didn't hate teachers. By all means, he loved them, and he especially loved making them spasm in horror over the spiders he'd put in their desk, or the goop he'd put in their chair, or the fake blood he'd squirt out in the middle of class... Ah, he loved his self-assigned job to ruin people's lives. So many good memories.

    Now, he was fully aware if he pushed it he'd get suspended or worse, but he'd be reprimanded. Frankly, he couldn't care less. No one would miss him if he was disposed of, so why would he care about them? Fair trade, that was. These teachers had it coming for being so boring in his eyes, and he was going to prank them all, one by one.

    The target today was his math teacher. He'd set up the perfect plan, really, and it involved squirrels. Oh, so many squirrels. If one listened they could hear the tiny squeaks and scraping noises in the box he'd brought. Actually collecting the little critters had been difficult, and there were at least a few scratches on him- but hey, he'd done it.

    Squirrels weren't the entire plan, though- he had some slime as well, a few streamers.. things were going to be really interesting this class. He felt he could genuinely get away with it, too, provided he wasn't interrupted.

    There were many things people could find a miracle. One would find a person with the ability to fly a miracle, a person who can heal would also be a curiosity, hell the existence of the entire island would be too if they hadn't been part of the community. A miracle for Raphael on the other hand, would be coming early for class--and for math class no less. He didn't really hate school but having to attend classes could get really boring. Terribly so.

    But here he was, dragging his sorry ass to his least favorite class in the world, simply dreading the rest of the day. No one else was in class yet save for a few he could count with one hand. The horseman made his way to his seat and decided sitting there wasn't gonna help him so he went to the windows. From the corner of his eye, he found the guy looking a little suspicious with this box on him. Well it wasn't suspicious, per se, but Raphael was a curious one. It seemed like something was moving inside but he couldn't possibly know that, right?

    Ever so quietly, he moved towards the boy in question, whispering, "Hey buddy... what 'cha got there?"

    Ivan had been about to open his box when he heard.. footsteps. He froze, and as an instinctual reaction tried to hide more behind the desk. Whoever it was had come early. Extremely so. He only hope he'd hidden well enough where he could finish this without being caught. Said hope was quickly dashed, though.

    "Ksshhfnabah!" Ivan squeaked in pure gibberish as he heard the student speak, his entire frame flailing and nearly losing grip of the box- thankfully, he did not. What proceeded was a look, momentarily, of a deer caught in headlights as he peered his head above the desk to peer at this invasion of his plans. He tried glaring, but it was obvious he was shaking, just a little. Who was this? Why was he here? He'd planned to do this with no one here! He was going to rat him out and then he'd be dead!

    ... Unless he could make him an accomplice. A grin came to him as he finally regained his composure, purring, "Hey, handsome. It's.. nothing important. Yet. It will be if you help me. See... I'm enacting justice on our teacher here. If you want, you could join me. Besides.. I see how bored you get. I know how painful it is!" He did a dramatic sigh, collapsing to the ground to accentuate his point. He looked to the boy from his position as he continued, "You could help me spread that pain just a little bit. It'll be grand, like a Christmas Miracle- only with misery instead of happiness and joy."

    He wouldn't dare admit it, but there was almost a sense of pleading behind his antics. He really didn't want to be snitched on, and he felt this was the only way to avoid that possibility. Regardless, he tried to distract with dramatics, as always, even doing a sexy pose. "What do you say? Want to help this... handsome devil?"

    If Raphael could be sorry for accidents he caused for his little quirks, this was not one of those moments that he could. He couldn't help the soft chuckle that left him after the other guy just squeaked with surprise after he'd startled him. He looked absolutely terrified of being found out Raphael would have found it adorable.

    "Mhm, you know smooth-talking your way in to my good side doesn't really work, right?" he teased, leaning onto the chalkboard opposite the teacher's desk with a grin on his face watching as they boy did his theatrics on him. He was funny he'd give him that, and if anything, he was legitimately interested in whatever schemes he had under his sleeve. As much as the horsemen liked being the good child every now and then, he liked it when someone could match up to his wilder side.

    Crouching down to his level, Raphael looked to the other guy with curious eyes, "I may be interested in helping though; what's the plan?"

    Despite maintaining that bizarrely flirtatious, yet goofy expression on his face he'd been using to try and win this potential ally over, Ivan's face was burning. His blush spread to his ears due to how embarrassed he was, and honestly if he could hide without bringing more laughter to this individual, he would. Despite this, he tried to play it cool. He even laughed along just a little, though it was weak.

    "Hey.. can't blame a guy for trying. Besides... who's to say it won't work later on? I'm pretty good with my words, and it'd be fun to make you squirm." A wink followed this. It seemed, the closer Raphael got, the more he relaxed, and thus regained his confidence. Despite being petrified just mere moments before, he was now able to stare Raphael in the eyes with a halfheartedly cocky grin. It was strange to say the least, but he attributed it to quick recovery instead of anything magical.

    "The plan," He continued after a slight pause, barely able to contain his snickering due to how excited just talking about this made him, "Is to introduce our teacher to my new friends. This box I have here is filled to the brim with squirrels. Lots of them. And I was thinking we put some in this desk here and leave the rest to be opened as a.. present, from the class that loves him so much." Another grin bordering on the edge of insanity followed before he patted the box lightly.

    "Don't worry 'bout the squirrels, by the way. Hung with them before dragging them here. They're chill people." While he hadn't outright gotten their permission, he felt snuggling them prior for forty minutes sufficed. After a moment to let that sink in, he looked to Raphael with.. excitement, more than anything. He had to admit that discussing his plans was genuinely a whole lotta fun, even if he tended to work solo. "So whaddya say? You in?"

    Raphael settled into his crouch, giving the other a raised brow along with a playful smile. Cute, very cute but he would have to try harder if he really wanted to 'make him squirm' a he put it. He could try but Raphael wouldn't give him any guarantee. "Make me squirm now, is it? I dunno about that; a lot of people tried but it tends to go the other way around when people try that on me."

    The horseman was open to listen, as the other laid out his battle plan for the day. Ah, their battle plan now, he guesses. Raphael pretended to look thoughtful, as if he was still considering his options. Squirrels were fun, and about three or four of them tended to get a reaction from the unsuspecting victim. A whole box? Definitely a sight to see.

    "You know what? I'm in," Raphael chirped, a cheeky grin sneaking into his expression. "Name's Raphael by the way. What else do you need help on?"

    Now, Ivan would regret this later- in fact, he'd be screaming at himself internally for the rest of the day. But in this moment, fully relaxed and rearing to go, he couldn't help but lean in quite close to his classmate's face, a slight glint in his eye as he purred in an all-too seductive tone, "Really? Try me later, then. I'll have you squirming all throughout a night you won't forget." It was bold, and in all honesty he wasn't even serious- he'd never even had his first kiss before, let alone any experience in anything he was suggesting- but in this moment it was more just about having a good time, than worrying about being embarrassed.

    Now, despite being able to tease this far, he still wasn't entirely relaxed about this situation.He could feel the way his stomach lurched into his stomach, the longer it seemed Raphael thought on it. His acceptance finally allowed him to slump against the desk beside him in relief with a small sigh.

    "Good. Otherwise I'd have to kill you, with all the information you have." There was a clearly playful tone and wink that followed this to make sure the boy knew he wasn't serious. It was followed by a chuckle, "By the way Raphael is one badass-sounding name. Mine's just plain old Ivan. But I make up for it with squirrels, apparently. Good to meet you."

    From this point, though, they needed to act quickly. They were early, yes, but time moved quickly when you weren't paying attention. "Well, main thing I'll need some help with is getting the squirrels in the desk before they scurry away from us. The rest.. Ehh, I have some slime dispensers, but I'm not sure if we'll have time to set them up to fire at him. Thoughts?" He looked to Raphael for his input on all this.

    Raphael's smile just kept growing. He loved it when people could roll with things, even more so with the gesture. He didn't pull away at all, letting his classmate narrow the distance between their faces, his grin not leaving his face at any moment as he spoke. "I look forward to it, then," he said. Nothing more but a mischievous grin on his face to add to the mix.

    "Ivan's not half bad; it reminds me of military people -- or I've playing too many war games again," Raphael laughed at the playful threat. He wasn't really going to be scared -- as far as he knew he was probably unkillable, therefore he'd nothing to worry even if he'd been serious. His name on the other hand; his dad never told him anything about what it meant to him but it was something he didn't worry too much about.

    Raphael moved away a bit so he could stand up, though he kept his head low, his body curved forward to keep their conversation. "I mean, I think I'm pretty good with animals. I could get the squirrels into the desk myself while you load the slime -- unless I need animal control back up. We'll probably get to set it up in time before Teach' walks in on us. Sound good?"

    A part of Ivan, as soon as he saw that grin went into slight panic. His heart raced, and he couldn't help but wonder if he'd just set himself up for a lot of awkwardness later. In fact, he probably had- at least on his end. This seemed normal, to Raphael- at least from what Ivan was gathering. He probably was a Class A flirt, maybe even some skirt chaser or something. Luckily for Ivan, he had no skirt- but what if that didn't matter? What had he gotten himself into?

    Overthinking aside, he still felt somewhat calmed- so at least a complete urge to run away was avoided- but it didn't stop the slight hesitation in his voice as he whispered, "Uh--.. yeah, right. Later then.." One could see the slight blush dusted along his features, if they were observant enough.

    Despite this, he couldn't help a snort as Raphael continued. He followed up with a light and cheerful, "Gee, thanks. Can't say I ever enlisted, but, hey.. Life is war, right?" It was a pessimistic outlook, when he thought about it, so he then grinned, adding, "A huge, sexy war with hot bitches. Might even snatch one of their numbers for you, if you do a good job helping me."

    He gave a nod of confirmation regardless, standing himself and shuffling through his backpack to get the slime dispensers. "Sure thing. And, um... be careful with them. They're... They were good to me. I don't want them hurt." He paused, before adding with a soft chuckle, "By the way- if I do get you those numbers, how do you like 'em? Blonde, tall?"

    Raphael bit his lip, trying not to outright laugh at the poor guy. Was what he did too much, he wondered but he could got the chance to see that he might have actually said too much--if the sheepish look on Ivan's face was any indication to him. He'll probably explain himself later on; brush it off as a joke but for now, he wanted to get the amusement of flustering him.

    He only laughed as Ivan replied to his war games comment, giving not much of an input other than shaking his head at amusement for the "offer". He seemed to be recovering, he thought with amusement twinkling in his eyes.

    "No worries -- I don't harm animals that aren't out to kill me," he jested as he moved his attention to the box that was now in his hands. He peeked into the box, opening the top with just a crack so he could see the little critters scampering inside. "Besides, squirrels are too cute to hurt. How many are in here anyway?"

    The squirrels were not so surprisingly cooperative, one poking his head out as he tried to call for it calmly, but he could practically feel the others were somewhat agitated. The first one ran up his arm before he could make a grab for it, yet he didn't seem to panic at all as it made its way to his shoulder and tried to reach to his head. "So anyway. I don't really have a specific type -- I like tall girls though." A beat; Raphael looked to Ivan looking a little thoughtful. "Or you know, cute boys are also up in my league."
