Summary: Megan’s pretty sure she’s actually being set up for a joke.
Authors Notes/Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Megan regarded the little patch of fake hair in her hand with undisguised suspicion. “You’re winding me up.”
“It’s the rules,” Santo insisted. “You patrol with us, you wear a mustache as a disguise.”
Megan looked to Victor for support, but the reptilian boy was already attaching his own bristly fake facial hair to his upper lip with spirit gum.
“This is so stupid.”
“It’s the rules,” Santo repeated firmly. “It’s how we roll.”
Megan sniffed the lip wig, then held it as far from her body as she could, wrinkling her nose. “It smells.”
“It’s a heroic smell!” Santo said dramatically.
“You’ll get used to it,” Victor said at the same time , taking the offending mustache from her. “Hold still. I’ll stick it on, and we can go.”
