Is there something wrong with me, Videl Satan?
All of my friends are all interested in guys, and they all have guys who like them back.
For me, there's no special boy that I love. It's always been my secret dream to find someone whom I truly loved with all my heart, and someone who loved me back.
I held on to this dream, and it helped me get through my scattered childhood.
My father and my mother had a divorce, and then my father went on to become the champion of the world, jumping from woman to woman like a disease.
And then he defeat Cell, and things got even worse. He became so full of himself!
The worst part is, I'm not even sure if he deserves all this praise. Cell seemed to strong, and it's hard to believe my father had that kind of power.
Anyway, there is one guy who is interested in me. Unfortunately, I hardly have any interest in him!
I mean, he's cute and all, but I don't think it is going to work. He asked me out a couple of weeks ago, and I've just kind of went along with him. Although I'm sure my inner reaction is wrong-I dread seeing him. I've even thought of skipping school to avoid talking to him, and when I see him in the hallway I run in the other direction. We've only been on one date, because I canceled out second one. There's just not the love I expected to be in a relationship. We haven't kissed, hugged or even held hands yet. Truthfully?
I don't want to get that close to him.
I don't want to get that close to Sharpener Pencil, my boyfriend.
I walk into school Monday morning, with a tired look on my face. I used to be bubbly and happy, and now I only pretend to be. Inside, I'm always thinking of ways I could avoid seeing Sharpener. My heart beats louder as I approach the one class we have together, Geography. My heart isn't reacting out of love, it's out of nerves. I don't want to see him!
As I walk into the room just as the bell rings (to avoid extra conversation with Sharpener), he grins and waves at me. I smile back, and quickly sit at my desk.
"Class, we have a new student today!" announcing my teacher.
As soon as the new kid walks in, my heart skips a beat. He's very tall, and you can tell underneath his baggy clothes he's not so scrawny. His black hair sticks straight up on his head, and yet I see no evidence of gel usage. He smiles and waves at the class.
"Hi, my name is Gohan Son." He says in a cheerful voice.
He's obviously a nerd, but an extremely attractive one. My best friend's eyes are locked onto him as his eyes nervously scanning the room. Is it my imagination, or did his gaze lock with mine for a split second?
As I stare into his jet-black eyes, I feel like I've seen him from somewhere before. However hard I think, my brain can't seem to click.
"Gohan, why don't you take the empty seat beside Videl there?" Mrs.Matsura says, pointing in my direction.
When I feel the way my heart and brain react as his legs walk the slow path to the empty desk beside mine, I instantly know what's happened to me.
"Hi! You're Videl right? I'm Gohan. I just started going to this school!" he said cheerfully.
"Hi. I'm Videl" I said quietly, my eyes looking down.
I felt guilty, and horrible. My boyfriend! What would I do about my boyfriend! All I wanted was for our horrible relationship to end. I wanted out of this! But I knew I'd never have the courage to tell him we'd be better off as friends.
For the rest of the class, I didn't have a chance to talk to Gohan or Sharpener, but they were all I thought about.
The final bell rang, and as I stand up to go talk to my friend, all the while glancing at Gohan, I know Sharpener is silently waiting for me so we can walk together. He'll wait for me at my locker, I'll wait for him at his, and we'll walk outside together. He'll ask me if I want to do something, and I'll say I have choir. Which I do. I have choir every lunch hour. But he doesn't know that it's easy to skip, and I'm happy to use it as an excuse to not date him. Unfortunately, I'm still his girlfriend.
What I'm not expecting however, is that after Sharpener and I have parted ways, I see Gohan. He smiles and waves at me, and I smile genuinely back at him.
"Hey Videl. I'm just on my way to get some groceries for my mum. Do you want to come?" he asks
"Sure Gohan." I reply
We walk together to the store, which is only a few blocks away from our school. I'm amazed how easy conversation is. Gohan asks about the high school, and I answer his questions. I'm not always on edge walking with him, which is how it is for Sharpener.
After a few minutes, we find ourselves standing in front of the grocery store.
There seems to be some sort of commotion going on there. The cops are everywhere. I hear gunshots. I turn around, and Gohan is gone.
"Gohan!" I cry
The sound of more gunshots answer me. I run into the midst of all the people running about.
Since my father is world champion, the police sometimes called on me to help with emergencies. I've never felt so scared doing police work before though.
I run and kick a big man holding a gun. He instantly gets up and points his gun at me. Before I can react, before I can shout, he's fired. I freeze in panic, expecting the pain to come, so afraid to die.
Before the speeding bullet can pierce my chest, a flash of gold runs across my line of vision. The last thing I see before I give into the shock of my surroundings is deep turquoise eyes and golden hair burning themselves into my brain.
I awaken at home, with my father's concerned features bearing down on me.
"I'm fine daddy," I say, "I'm fine."
"Thank God," he answers in his gruff voice.
I close my eyes and slightly smile to myself. I'm alive! But who's the mysterious figure who saved me? A fuzzy memory builds in my mind, but I can't grasp on to it, and it just slips farther away into the darkness of my own mind.
Before I can rest and relive my conversation on the way to the grocery store I suddenly remember. For some reason, I can't shake a nagging worry. What happened to Gohan?
I can't rest, I can't relax. Tomorrow, I have to spend a whole new day as Sharpener's girlfriend.
-Ok, Ok, I know, all the characters are OC. But oh well!
Let's just say I'm basing Videl's high school life on slightly personal experiences…:S
Except a hot guy like Gohan has never come and magically fallen in love with me.
Anyway please review and tell me what you think!
And if anybody who is reading this is wondering about "When Dragonball meets Harry Potter" then don't worry! I'm working on a new chapter!
