    There she was, just suckling the contents of juice box through a straw. As she sipped upon the delicious red nectar of chilled blood during the lunch period, she spies her detestable sister eating alone. Ughh... how gross Aedes thought of her in particular for there was no one whom closer remembered their mother more than she. Just looking at her made her mind go abuzz with ways to crack her head so that could go the rest of her days to never lay eyes on that eyesore.

    Soon she found herself just staring at the girl, thinking what terrible things she could do to her until her juice box ran dry. Aedes then peeks down the straw, then carelessly tosses it to the nearest trash can only for it to bounce off the room and onto the ground. But instead of being the dutiful sorts, she instead just leaves it there as approaches her sibling with friendly smile on her face.

    "Ohhhh hey Prea... whatcha doing over here at this time? Shouldn't you be having lunch with your friends? Oh wait, who am I kidding... you don't really have any friends now do you?" snarked Aedes, trying to provoke a reaction from Prea even if she remembers her as... well being few marbles short of set.

    Prae was a determined eater. She had a goal, and that goal was to eat her food while being as 'normal' as possible. Using utensils as she took bite out of bite of just some food she had grabbed at random. She honestly didn't care for what it was called, all she had to do was eat it so the school would see that she did, in fact eat food and was going about a normal day.

    While she was only half way through her meal she heard the sound of someone failing to put away their trash and walking her way. Prae figured it would be another nobody wanting to try and intimidate her, or befriend her, or some other useless goal that had nothing to do with Prae serving her master. She was only partially right.

    Looking at the person coming up to her, Prae's mind filled with latent information about Aedes. Even as they spoke to her Prae lost interest. "Aedes, I am currently eating my lunch. That is the point of this period of time, and friends are a waste of time. They do nothing for The Master, they do nothing for myself. They are a hindrance." Prae than began to recommence eating at a determined measured pace.

    Aedes narrows her gaze at Prae as she tried to dismiss her. But Aedes was not the sorts to take kindly to being ignored and this only resolved to try poke and prod her sister for something that would get reaction. Though it was clear that she didn't care for friends or herself, the way she spoke of her... master seemed the perfect way to get under her skin.

    "Hrmph... yeah friends are a waste a time. Probably the only thing we would ever have in common" begrudgingly agreed Aedes, pacing around so that she was on the other side of Prae... oh how she just wanted to see her head roll of that head of hers.

    "But where I am out for just myself... you just seem to care only for your dumb master now huh? What makes them so great now hrmm? Please do illuminate me and I might just let you finish your meal in peace~" promised Aedes, even with a reassuring smile she had no intentions of actually leaving her sister be. No she wanted to see that stoic facade that Prae puts up crumble. She wanted to see her squirm, all of the rest of her brothers and sisters should when she stands face to face with them.

    Even as she ate Aedes was still talking to Prae, asking her what made Master so special that Prae would follow them. "Counter point to your argument Aedes. What gives you purpose? What guides you through life? You say that you live for yourself. But what does the truly mean when you are only simply pestering you siblings for your own amusement." Prae quickly finished off the rest of her meal and with that done she stood up holding her food tray.

    She walked over to the trash can, to see the discarded drink box on the ground. With a sigh Prae leaned down picking it up she threw it away with her own discards before placing the tray in it's proper place. "Aedes, to me my Master is my guiding light and my direction in life. Without them I am nothing, and if anything threatens them..." Prae turns to look at Aedes her body prepped for a fight. "I would end everything for them."

    "Tssk... hey. Trying to spin the question back to me? I live for for myself and do as I please. And if want to pester you then what is going to stop me now hrmm? If you think you can well... we both know that to be a joke." complained Aedes, not enjoying being lectured by whom she sees as the inferior sibling. The gall she had to try to chastised her for what she meant by living for herself.

    "Hey now, not looking for a fight now." stated Aedes, raising her hands in mock surrender as she takes a step back. While she feins weakness, on her lips creeps a smile "Didn't realize your sugar daddy was lighthouse. How sad. So your happy to just a tool? Tools break you know. And when you do become damageed goods, do you think you can still make your precious master happy? Ever worry about the day they decide your no longer useful to them... that you are worth... nothing." spoke Aedes, keen to see if this dumb bug was capable of any sort of emotional reaction.

    "I do not care what you do Aedes. I only point out that living for one's self is pointless." Prae honestly didn't care, she had only spun the question around to try to drive her sister away. Apparently that wasn't going to work. So now here she was threatening her sibling while trying to get back to her school work because that was why she was in this school after all, to get an education like the law said so she would not disappoint her Master.

    "When I am damaged, Master heals me. When they decide that I am no longer of service to them, than I am given to a new Master. And Aedes, I am nothing. We are all nothing, compared to Master. What you are implying is that any of us have any self worth outside of service to the Master. We don't, and maybe one day you will realize that truth and stop being so immature." Prae shrugged and turned around heading towards the hall ways of the school. There wasn't anything she could do to stop Aedes from following her.

    "Oh by the devils, you sound more like a robot than than Eremita. Such rigid programming. But hey I guess your holding up better than her." groaned Aedes, whom then trails just behind Prae trying to scurry off as she can't let her walk off with the last word!

    "And you SHOULD care what I think. I am going to be the end of you one of these days! Because I have the sense of having some self preservation. You would probably just be happy dying for you master, maybe even slitting your throat open if they told to do so. And while the thoughts of you bleeding out for your master's enjoyment would bring a smile to me... it would be such of waste to let that blood run dry. Not that I think about drinking your blood, cause... ew! Even I have standards. No... you have something far more precious to me: time. And to let those precious years go to waste when they could be better spent on severing another's whims. I wouldn't even call it living. Just existing." prattled Aedes on and on, making sure to stay close enough that she could be heard loud and clear but stick far back enough in case of retaliation.

    "Cause in this world full of nobodies like you... at am a god damn somebody that matters. Just an obstacle for me to overcome as I live on in greatness." snarled Aedes, trying to come off as bold though given the safe distance she puts between and her sister its clear that she lacks any courage.

    "I do not care how robotic I sound Aedes. I am just responding how I see things and you are the one taking them and interpreting it as you will." Prae actually stopped now and glared at her sibling. "And so what if I feel that way Aedes, you know what I can do. How I'm not as fragile as some of our other siblings. If my Master requests me to, I would do anything, for them. You do not seem to understand that. My life is what My master wishes of it. If they wish that I cease to be than that is what I will do for we both know the only thing that can truly end me is our own family and time. And I will spend every gifted moment I have serving my master. In this world of no bodies, tell me. When you are gone, who will remember you? If you only serve yourself you will only be a fading memory that others will forget in their own time. Mean while for me, my service. My Life means something to someone, I will live on in more than just a faded memory of a pain in the neck."

    Prae was actually practically growling right now, the growl almost sounding like the chitterings of hundreds of legs. "And tell me Aedes, in a fight, in this hall way, with limited space to escape. Who would win. You? Or me? Who could if I was ordered to, or if i do as you suggest and life for myself, eat you right now and serve my master for longer. Tell me if doing things for myself would be the wiser option at the moment."

    Unholy hells she was baring teeth! While part of her was elated that finally got a reaction there was grim seriousness that made her blood grow cold and her bones rattle on the inside. While Aedes was confident that Prae would dare not start a fight, she really didn't feel like it was worth risking a fight then and then for Prae to make point. When it comes to fights she wanted to be in position that guarantee her victory.

    "H-h-hey! I was only messing with you~ Just wanted to see what if those facial muscles work since you have as about as much expression as a shop mannequin... no need to bite off my head. SHEESHH." spoke up Aedes, backing off. Even in retreat she still kept up appearance of trying to look as if she was in control of the situation.

    "As for whom will remember me? Well all of my adoring fans of course! As well as my haters, whom are to jealous to admit they wish to be me~" giggle Aedes as she stared daggers at Prae "Me! Me most beautiful, the most clever and the one with most ambitious. People live to worship me and follow me. And if I was to start popping up daisies could you imagine the lamentations? How empty their world will be without my perfection blessing them? Oh it would be such sad sad day as I will be dearly missed..."

    There was then a smirk on Aedes lips, flashing a tooth to here sister from her safe distance.

    "But I have no intentions of leaving those poor souls just yet. I am either going to live forever, or leave good looking corpse behind for them to remember me by. Adored and hated by many, while you... just one."

    Prae could feel something hot running through her veins, but she was restrained mentally by her bond to her Master. She would not do anything that would jeopardized her Master's image by doing anything illegal. She could feel her aggravation at her sister right now, the chitterring didn't stop as Aedes backed off. As Aedes tried to explain herself to Prae, the centipede stayed where she was, her expression not changing. "All I hear Aedes, is lies, falsehoods, and to be honest. It sounds to me like you're trying to lie to yourself."

    "Aedes, those the burn brightest burn out first. You'll be forgotten faster than any other sibling if you don't find something true to live for. And stop bothering me, if you threaten me again I will take it as a threat upon my Master." Prae was still squared up and ready to go for a fight still. "Unless you have some other reason to be around Aedes. I will find someone in authority, and let them know that you have threatened my existence. As those who are well read on my record would know, seeing as how the rest of you tried to eat me."
