Arsenic is a handsome boy with dark brown hair, blond highlights, olive skin, and ice-blue eyes. He wears a black shirt, a grey tie, and black gloves. Mercury and Arsenic stand in the hallway, next to a door. Hydrogen runs up to them.]
Hydrogen: Mercury! Arsenic! Will you vote for me to be student council president?
Mercury: You’re running for president?
[Hydrogen proudly points at herself.]
Hydrogen: Yep! Someday I’ll be president of the country too!
[Mercury leans down to pat Hydrogen on the head. Arsenic smirks.]
Mercury: Hope Congress has enough booster seats!
[Hydrogen storms away.]
