Lesson 1: The CRAPiest Magazine

 In Satan Cafeteria...

"Father Killed Daughter's Boyfriend for Being Too Old...." Marron said out loud the headline on the magazine she's reading.

Goten choked his coffee. "Do you really need to read that magazine?"

"Hm? What?" Marron looked at Goten who's sitting in front of her. "Oh! But this magazine is good! There lots of great stuffs you can read here." She flipped to another page. "Teenage Girl Ran Away with 30 Year Old Boyfriend"

Goten fell from his chair.

 As Marron kept on reading some more disturbing headlines ^_^, Goten stared out the window and sighed heavily. It's been 6 months. 6 months of having relationship with Bra and still no one in the family found anything suspiciouse about them. He and Bra hadn't get the courage to announce or to break up the news to their families yet. The only people who knows about them were Trunks, Marron and Pan. And they were, too, didn't know what to do about their secret love 'affair'.

Goten turned his gaze back to Marron. "Marron.."

"....the 2 lovebirds believed that they ran away to Las Vegas and got married right after..."
"Marron!" Goten frowned.
Marron stopped reading and looked over him. "You called?"
"Marron, I wonder if, uh, Bra and I...you know,..."
"You and Bra what?" Marron's eyes widened.
"Um, " his eyes turning bright red. "... if we tell our family about ,ya know, us."
Marron released a sigh and sat back laughing, "Oh, I thought you and Bra are going to...um, nevermind." Marron put her magazine down. "So what are you going to do about it?"
"I dunno!" he shrugged.
"Hm..Oh well, sooner or later they'll find out."
"I know that."
"Don't worry Goten, everything is going to be just fine.." Marron smiled and started to read back her magazine.
"It's easy for YOU to say! at least You and Trunks need like what? 2 weeks before everyone knows!"

"Yea, we're lucky." Marron opened up a page "Ooh! Husband Divorced Wife for Mother-in-Law!"

 Goten gave up. With that stupid reading meterial, Marron is another person. She's not even helping with his tiny problem. No, his BIG problem!  Goten read his watch and it's 2:30 in the evening.

The door swung open.

"Hey, sorry I'm late!" Trunks said as he approached them. He instinctively sat beside Goten noticing shopping bags and boxes took the seat beside Marron. "So you guys went shopping without me,huh?" he smiled at Marron.

No response.

"Uh, yea, Marron gotta buy some stuffs." Goten helped to answer. Marron was still focusing on the magazine. Trunks raised his eye-brows.

"Hey! HEY! MARRON!" Goten knocked on the table. Marron's head jerked up and looked at him. "Do you mind??" she continued to read until she finally felt the presence of Trunks sitting in front of her. "Oh! Hey! You're here!" she stood up and gave him a quick kiss. "Look! Look what I bought!" she held up the magazine in front of the two guys.

"'The CRAPiest' magazine??" Trunks said,amused. "Marron, you shouldn't read that! The stories are crap it even said it on the front cover!"

"I know, and I love it." she continued to read.

Trunks looked at Goten and they just shrugged.

"So you wanted to see me?" Trunks asked.
"Yep. I've been thinking about finding a job."
"A job."
"Yes, a job."
"What kind of job do you want?" Trunks took Marron's drink and sipped it.
"I dunno?---can't think of any."
"Want to work at my place?"
"NO! I don't want to work at YOUR place! Imagine you becoming my boss!"
Trunks smirked, "I know."

"Bestfriends for 20 Years, Grew Up Became Gays and Married." Marron read out loud again. She paused a while then her eyes moved slowly towards the two guys in front of her.

They both looked at her. "Marron, you better stop reading that magazine." Trunks said quickly. Marron ignored him and continued on reading.

"Hey Trunks!" Goten cut in. "Help me out here!"
"What am I suppose to do?"
"I don't know!" he said breathlessly. "But  I really need a job! I'm 27 and still unemployed? It's embarrassing."
"Well, you're graduated from college, you can find any jobs you want."
"You're right." he sighed. "I'll look up the papers at home later." Goten looked outside and noticed most of the passerby were students. He read down his watch and it's already 5 minutes past 3. He stood up. "Hey, I gotta go."

"Where are you going?"
"School's out."
"I always meet B-chan after school remember?"
"Oh yea, right." Trunks smiled. "So I'll see you later."
"Kay. Uh..." Goten looked down at Marron. "Bye Marron-chan!"

No response.

"Don't worry, I'll send the message to her later." Trunks chuckled. Goten just smiled and shooked his head as he stepped out from the cafeteria.

"Well.." Trunks grinned at Marron who was still focused on the magazine. "That leaves two of us! So uh..." he reached for her hand and held it. "Why don't we leave this place and go somwhere else,hm?" he smirked.

Marron had just flipped to another page and read the headlines: "Bussinessman Having a Wild Affair with Secretary"

Marron stared at the headlines for a moment, thinking hard then she glared suspiciously at Trunks and stared at him weirdly. He raised his eyebrows. "You REALLY need to get rid of that thing."
