The way that I was going to help them was by giving them both a bodyguard. That way, they would be protected from the retaliation of the main bullies. Both of the twins accepted the gift. They also had the jar of ooze that they could use to make masks. I did not think that they would be under advantaged. I then left them. They were not a bit magical in any way. If I wanted to really advance myself in this sandbox game, I was going to need someone that was a Blessed human to drain. I was just aimlessly walking around the city when I came across a convenience store. There was a group of 4 kids loitering around in the front. They were hanging out together, drinking soda and eating snacks while they laughed and joked. It was getting pretty late out. I wondered if they had anybody waiting for them at home. A pudgy, middle-aged man was exiting the store. As he crossed them, he tripped when his foot caught the elevated pavement of the sidewalk. The contents of his bag flew out for everyone to see it. He had a meat bun, 2 energy drinks and 3 volumes of separate shotacon manga. The 4 laughed.
All of them teased the man for being a "fatass" "lardass" and "clumsy freak". When they actually saw the manga on the ground, they snatched it before the panicked man could recover them. "Woah! Look at this shit! This guy's a total fucking pervert." one of the boys said. Another one laughed and said "I know right!? He's into young boys and shit!" They laughed among themselves. The man did not seem to know what to do. He was embarrassed and angry being humiliated by them. I also saw a weird blush on their face. There was certainly a flustered energy being emitted by him. The third boy holding a manga simply walked over to him. "Here you go." he said as he handed it over. The man nodded and graciously took him. He even thanked the boy. The boy just smirked. "So, you're gay, right?" he asked. The man looked shocked he was being asked that question. He stammered but he did not say anything. The boy gestured to himself and his friends. "How about us!? You wanna give us some good money? We'll let you watch us strip." he offered. Now the man was red. Laughing continued.
Seeing that he was once again being mocked, he was frozen in a rage. There was nothing he could do about it though. He was caught dead to rights here. It was a great conundrum for him. A fourth boy in the group groaned and said "Just let him go already." It really took all of the wind out of the other's sails. The man took the opportunity to go. I watched as the fourth boy made an excuse to leave. Coincidentally, he went the same way the man left. The others continued to hang out without him. I wanted to know what was going to happen to him. I followed at a distance. The boy was able to catch up to the man. The man looked really wary. "Hey." the said. The fat man's head was still on a swivel. "Are you seriously gay!?" he asked. The man focused his attention on him. "What's that matter!?" he demanded. The boy just held his arms up placatingly. "I really need some cash. Is that offer still on the table?" Both the man and I were shocked. I guess he really was in a great need for cash. I approached them and said "You do not need to go gay for pay. I have a way to get money." There was no need.
