It was one of the most confusing transformations they'd done - including that time they all switched bodies - and Nossan had a front row seat to the whole thing. They all got in line as usual: Ian, himself, Ucchii, King, Amy-chan, and Souji-kun. They all got their zyudenchi out. Nossan happened to glance over at King to take his cue, and that's when he saw it. As they all yelled, "Brave In!" and pushed the button on their zyudenchi, King turned his head a little towards Ucchii... and winked.
Nossan had never seen such a cringe-worthy transformation as Ucchii's. He first went beet red and gaped, open-mouthed like a fish, at King, who was carefree and grinning as he loaded in his zyudenchi. By the time Ucchii had recovered enough to load his, everyone else was already moving their feet.
Halfway through the samba they finally heard a voice squeak, "A-A-And now! B-B-Bravely!"
While he was turning, Nossan caught sight of Ucchii, still red-faced, stumbling through his steps. He lost track of Ucchii as his brave enveloped him, so all he could do was hope for the best. Everything was going smoothly - Nossan thought his pose was particularly imposing today - until Amy-chan finished with a confident, "Kyouryuu Pink!"
Followed by silence.
Everyone turned to look at Ucchii.
He was Kyouryuu Gold all right, but Nossan had no idea how his brave had held up enough for him to transform. He was curled up in a ball on the ground between Nossan and King, and even with the helmet on, Nossan could tell he was blushing.
King squatted down next to him.
"Sorry, Ucchii!" He rubbed Ucchii's helmet. "Can I make it up to you by letting you brave finish me tonight?"
Oh my was right.
