West reacts to East’s words in the previous post. The former bristles and pouts at said words and doesn’t sound pleased at all.

“What was that?” West said. “Are you saying I’m weak, East? Like, there’s no way.” West said this in a rather whining tone of voice.

"I’m strong, okay? Totally, completely, absolutely strong. Stronger than you and South and North.” This was said with much conviction.

“That’s ‘cause I’m the ‘super special awesome’ Superhero and you lot are just my sidekicks. Yeah, that’s right.” West nods.

“You lot are just my backup ‘cause I’m the Leader. So there.” West spoke as if all this was fact and true and couldn’t possibly ever be wrong.

East sighs. “We have already had this discussion earlier, Sky, so I would appreciate it if we did not have to repeat this all over again.”

There’s a fond smile on East’s face though. “But, in case you forgot, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, my dear Sky, let me say it again: You are not the Leader and we are not your sidekicks.”
