WAIT by glitchedpuppet WAIT by glitchedpuppet
Mike held his position like a statue for a good ten seconds, he was trying his best to not slam PK. Finally, with what seemed like an eternity, Mike snorted and calmed down. "...okay, I'll just take my business elsewhere."

PK was puzzled. "What? Business elsewhere? Who else do you have to see? No one's got the money to loan to you!"

"Well. There's always a good story to sell to Chuck and Kathy." Mike exhaled after saying that, tensing up.

"What? Story? What the heck are you talking about?" PK was still puzzled.

"Oh, just informing them about your brand new citizenship fee of half a million poke... and not just that..." Mike reached into his scarf and pulled out a familiar slip, with one side covered with nothing but spirals. "But I bet Chuck would just love to hear how you ran off without paying for very expensive tea?"

"Grrkkkt!!" If only PK had any teeth, she would be gnashing at them now. PK knew exactly that Chuck would eat up such a simple story like that and turn it so that it would be printed that the Merchant head was no better than a thief.

There was a good long silence for a minute. Mike was the first to be impatient, and turned around, ready to leave. "Well, I best be on my way..."

"WAIT!!" PK gasped out.

"W..w-w-w--w-w-w--w-w..." PK was stuttering like mad. Every utterance of the letter signaled for her body colors to slowly shift to many hues. Red, blue, black, green, teal, violet... plaid... all until she finally transfixed her colors back to its regular purple. "What do you want for that?"

Shroomsworth couldn't help but slightly smile, as he knew Mike was attempting to solve this problem in a non-violent way.

"Let Maple stay with me in Tao Village, and let her be friends with Sandy! Deal?!" Mike turned around to look at PK straight in her face, clenching to the bill as hard as he could.

"...deal." PK collapsed to the floor in defeat. And with that utterance, the paper in Mike's claws suddenly burst into flames, burning whatever proof of a 'theft' PK had done.

"Okay... well, I guess I'll see you when the sun's about to set to pick up Maple. Bye!" Mike turned around towards the door, opened it, and left. Even if he ended paying for the tea, he didn't mind. A price to pay for this victory.

Second to last part of :iconmichael2021:'s story in which he makes a horrid deal.

Nicely handled, although he should have made her pay for the tea as well. And the ice cream he never got to eat. I can't help but feel that Mike's still the one losing out here having to blackmail her into doing something she should have done already.

Haha! That's a pretty good deal. I think Mike won this for sure. I thought the part where PK was changing multiple colors was funny, as well.

Great job too! *feels like she's saying the same thing over and over*

I love the little parts of the description where you interject opinions related to what the character PK feels i.e. "in which he makes a horrid deal." That bitterness kind of adds to the story and art, which are both great, by the way. XD
