New Girl on the Slopes: Chap.3
Hi, everybody! I'm back to write more of my fanfic!
Peachrocks: Oh, he's not? I thought he would be out of character because he's being nice to Shiko, but now that I look again, Slash isn't out of character, not really. I just haven't played the game in so long because the STUPID CARTRAGE is broken. I thought I would get in trouble because the last time I tried to post a fanfic I got in trouble. Okay, virtual brownies it is!
Shiko was breathless. She and Slash were at the entrance to the cafeteria, watching lots of kids just fooling around and eating lunch. Mostly fooling around.
"Slash, how many kids go to this school?" Shiko asked her spiky-haired friend. Slash turned to her and sighed. He knew that question was coming.
"Well, since all the grades from kinder garden to 8th grade go here, I would say it's a lot. In this town there aren't a lot of families, though, so it's not so bad. This is the 5th through 8th grade lunch." Slash explained. Shiko's eyes widened.
"Back in my old school, this amount of kids would just be half of one grade!" Shiko exclaimed. Then she looked around and spotted the only empty table. "Is that where you and your friends sit?" She asked. Slash nodded and took her over to the rectangular table. Slash sat down at one end of the table and Shiko sat across from him.
"So, where are your friends?" Shiko asked, looking around. Slash sighed again. He was expecting this, too. "They're buying lunch, probably," he told her, "I'll go talk to them. Stay here, be quiet, and especially, don't go near them." he said, pointing to a group of 8th grade boys that looked like thugs. Shiko nodded, as Slash went to talk to his fellow Snowboard Kids.
Shiko sighed and pulled out her lunch. She brought it from home, of course, but it wasn't like the usual box lunch her mom packed for her; it was in a bag. She smiled; her dad must've made her favorite lunch: a peanut butter sandwich. She slowly started to eat it, being rather neat, and thought about what Slash's friends might be like. He said some of them were girls, so it can't be that crazy. I hope one of them is kinda like Mina she thought.
Slash came back five minutes later with five other people following him. They were all carrying lunch trays and looking questionably at Shiko. Shiko's face got red with embarrassment. Slash, you baka! Why all at once? Shiko thought, somewhat angry that he didn't introduce them one at a time. Slash, noticing her embarrassment, decided to get things started.
"Sorry about the surprise, Shiko. Well...these are my friends, The Snowboard Kids," he said, motioning to the five kids in back of him, "and I am their great leader!"
This statement caused an uproar of laughs from the other Snowboard Kids. One of them, a tall girl with brown hair up in pigtails, a rather big nose, and an outfit that looked like it belonged in a swimsuit magazine, stepped forward.
"Slash, you couldn't lead a horse to water if there was a lake right in front of you!" she shouted between laughs. Slash glared at her.
"Yeah, well, at least I'm not as stupid as you!" Slash launched back. The group of kids immediately stopped laughing. Shiko just sat in her seat, lost for words. The hell? she thought.
"Yeah, and you couldn't lead anyone, Linda, 'cause no one likes a conceited brat!" a dark skinned boy with a Jamaican style hat on taunted to the person who was supposedly Linda. Linda's face got red and she started to growl. Slash and the boy started shaking. A blonde girl wearing pink stood between the feuding preteens.
"Guys, remember what the councilor said?" The girl said calmly. The three other kids she was trying to talk to paid no heed. Shiko looked on, completely lost. What's going on? This is getting freaky she thought. Linda pushed the blonde girl out of her way.
"Screw the peace, Nancy! These idiots are going down!" Linda shouted, advancing towards the two boys. The boys then broke into a run, Linda chasing after them. Screaming echoed throught the cafeteria, but no one paid much attention. The girl called Nancy immediately noticed Shiko and sat down next to her.
"Eheh, sorry about all that. So, you're the new girl?" Nancy asked. Shiko nodded, relived that someone noticed her. "Well, I'm Nancy Neil. It's nice to meet you," Nancy said, smiling.
"I'm Shiko Keri. So...who's everybody else?" Shiko asked. The two other kids came over to Shiko and Nancy.
"Well, I'm Tommy." one of the kids said.
"I am called Wendy. Pleased to make your acquaintance." The other kid said.
Shiko smiled. These kids were really nice. She hoped that they thought that she was really nice, too. They did, and soon they were asking Shiko what it was like in Japan, and what her old school was like, and what her friend back at her old school were like, etc. The conversation was short-lived, as the yelling of the three other Snowboard Kids started to get on people's nerves. Other students started to come over and ask Nancy if she could make them shut up. Soon all four kids (including Shiko) were walking towards the corner where the fight had ended up. It really wasn't much of a fist fight, there was just arguing about random things that made no sense.
"Okay everyone, break it up. We're all gonna get beat up by the 8th graders if you don't cool it!" Tommy shouted. The three kids immediately shut up. Linda dusted herself off and walked over to Shiko, hand outstretched.
"Hello, newbie. I'm Linda Maltine. And you are?" the snob asked. Shiko shook Linda's hand. "Shiko. Shiko Keri. Nice to meet you." Shiko replied. Linda blinked. "Wait. You're a Keri?" Linda asked, raising an eyebrow. Shiko nodded.
"Well then, are the rumors true? Do you really live in that old mansion at the end of Snowboard Street? Did you really used to live in Japan? Is your hair really a wig?" Linda asked excitedly. Shiko sighed; Linda must be one of those people who listen to rumors.
"Yes, yes, and no. This is my real hair." Shiko said. "Really? Cool." The boy next to Slash said. Linda turned to him. "No way! No one's hair can be that long! It's impossible!" Linda exclaimed. Shiko's eyes looked sad for a second and quickly changed back. Only Slash noticed the change.
"It can when you haven't cut your hair in seven years." Shiko said. Everyone gasped. That was too freaky to believe. "By the way, who are you?" Shiko asked the boy next to Slash.
"Oh, I'm Jam." the boy said.
"Okay, then. So: Slash, Linda, Jam, Nancy, Tommy, Wendy. Is that right?" Shiko asked. The Snowboard Kids nodded. Even though they didn't know it, all of them liked Shiko and wanted her to be a Snowboard Kid. Just then the bell that ended lunch rang. All seven kids got nervous looks on their faces: they had to get back to class! As they raced through the hallway, Shiko asked everyone what teacher they had. They told her that they all had Ms. Dunth and Ms. M as teachers. As they walked into the room, Shiko was almost skipping. This was going to be fun.
Did I portray the characters right? I know Tommy and Wendy didn't get such cool intros, but I couldn't think of anything. Oh, and if you review, by the request of Peachrocks, I made virtual brownies! See ya!
