READ THE STORY BEFORE LOOKING AT ILLUSTRATIONS, PLEASE!!!!
Ricki: I was thinking the same... hmm..HEY I got an idea! Ya wanna play "I bet ya can't steal... " game? We used to play it with some street kids when we were young...basic idea is that other one tells ya to steal something and ya have to steal it. The one who gets caught for stealing first is the loser... haven't play it for a while...
"Ricki, could you bring coffee for me now when your going that way?" Nico asked when Ricki stood up, going to kitchen.
"Hai,hai. With milk or not?" Ricki asked. Hopefully he will not figure out...Our awesome game just formed into an awesome prank, he thought.
"Without..." Nico said and Ricki walked away to kitchen. It went surprisingly easily today...Have to keep an eye on him if he keeps acting like that...Nico thought after Ricki had gone.
"You got the anesthetic?" Ricki asked Luka while making Nico's coffee.
"Yes, I found it exactly where you said it would be." Luka said grinning and laughing quietly.
"Good! This is gonna be awesome!" Ricki said while mixing anesthetic into Nico's coffee.
"Awesome, nothing less is expected from us, buddy!" Luka exclaimed. Ricki grinned to him.
"Well I'm off now, wish me good luck and i hope this will work out." Ricki said and walked back to Nico's office.
"Here's your coffee, boss." Ricki said and handed coffee cup to Nico.
"Thanks." Nico said hesitaiting to drink it. Never know what that freeloader is up to...
Ricki keeped eye on Nico while he was drinking. Fell asleep already.........Can wait to see his face after this....he thought and laughed to himself.
It took a moment for Nico to fall asleep but waiting got paid and he fall asleep.
"Yo, Luka help me to carry him. We can't colour his hair in here." Ricki said to Luka who was waiting behind the door. They carried Nico into a spare room. For their luck, everyone else was in harbor to do some business and get drinks so they had time for their operation. Ricki took pink hair-colour and started to colour Nico's hair. I'm happy that this anesthetic is a strong thing and it'll take at least an hour to him to wake up...Ricki thought.
"Ya seem like ya did this before ..." Luka said. "Maybe your hair isn't really red." he continued laughing. Ricki looked at him.
"My hair is red, I just know how to do this without a mess." Ricki said and continued working. For once I'm actually doing something, well after this he can't say I don't do anything, Ricki thought.
After finishing his job Ricki looked at Nico's new haircolor with Luka. They both laughed quietly.
"Awesome job has to say buddy!" Luka said, smirking.
"Your awesome idea!" Ricki said. "We should carry him back to office before he wakes up." he said and they carried Nico back to his office.
Nico woke up in his office. I must have fallen asleep...so there was something in coffee after all, he thought and stood up from his chair.
"and where's that freeloader? seems like he hasn't finished his job..." he said to himself and walked outside. Rest of the crew was on the deck. Except Ricki and Luka....
"Oi, have you seen Ricki?" Nico asked. Others turned to see him and all started to laugh hard unable to say anything.
"Guys, this is serious. Why are you laughing?" he said irritated. Why this crew is so hard to handle...
"Nice haircolor Nico!!!" Thrinty managed to mumble while laughing.
"..." Nico quickly got into bathroom to see his hair in the mirror. His anger raised to the top level when he saw his hair. Bright pink coloured hair.
"I'm gonna kill those two..." he mumbled.
