A black sun was rising in the Thar desert. Jane and Janei (pronounced J-ah-neigh) were practicing their world famous gogo-dancing routine. It was a strenuous routine of back flips, tap dancing duets, and death defying amateur acrobatics.
The twins had made a name for themselves with their signature move: EAGLE - The Eagle Arrow Groin Lock Explosion. The move is always performed as their encore, for they have never had a performance where the audience didn't go mad with desire. So after waiting for the rapturous applause to die down just enough, Jane walks onto stage and takes a seat on her chair, takes out her cigarett and lighter, and makes herself comfortable. Everyone knows whats coming, the air is thick with anticipation. The Jane sisters have been known to make audiences wait up to a quarter hour for the explosive conclusion to their show. When everyone least expects it, Janei sprints out from the wing of the theather, pounding her diamante heels onto the wooden floor. Not a single sound other than the explosive CLACK of the heels can be heard.
CLACK - CLACK - CLACK - CLACK - ... a pause
As time itself stops, Janei flips into the air and assumes her position, Jane follows suit, lifting her leg. Those few seconds while Janei flies through the air, become tens of seconds.... and as the connection is made, and explosive cannon of confetti hidden between Jane's legs explodes covering the entire audience it fluttering metallic confetti.
