Speed and Psych just looked at each other with concern when Kima admitted that she did get bullied. It was clearly affecting her self-esteem, much like how the bullying Speed received affected his. Speed placed a hand directly on Kima's shoulder and looked at her directly in the eyes. "When you get a free moment, show me exactly who's been bullying you."
"Hikaru, you surely cannot be suggesting to-"
"Relax, I won't do anything too crazy," Speed interrupted, mixing his cocky, care-free attitude with this sudden serious facade he had been putting on. "I just wanna be the one who stands up for the little guys, you know?" Speed knew all too well the consequences of just letting bullying like this happen... if he could spare Kima from even a little bit of the ongoing mental health issues that Speed was going through, he would do so in a heartbeat.
When Speed and Psych arrived in class, Speed was already noticing a couple of suspicious things, particularly this "Blaster" guy, who he heard tell Kima to call him Tamaki. Speed raised an eyebrow; was this guy for real? Was he one of the bullies that Kima was talking about earlier? Or was he actually a friend? He gave a look to his brother, who seemed to be having similar suspicions... this "Tamaki" would definitely be someone they would have to keep an eye on for later.
Before class could actually start, Psych couldn't help but overhear the comments coming from his classmates about him and Speed, particularly the fact that their holosuits made them look near identical. "Whoa, look at those two, I can't tell the difference between them!"
"Except for the part where one of them looks like a delinquent, while the others looks like a snob."
"Oh don't say that, they could hear you... besides, they look kinda cute, don't you think?"
"Why am I not surprised you jumped to that right away, Mio?"
