A/N: This is my fourth story, but second on . As I support multiple pairings, I thought to myself, "Hmm, I've written 2 Gelphies, and I'm currently in the middle of writing what could be a Fiyeraba, so what next? How about a Bessa?" and then this great idea came to mind. It will start off pre-Shiz, when Elphaba and Boq are 13 and Nessa is 11 (I always pictured Boq to be the same age as Elphaba anyway). It will revolve around Bessa, but will have small hints of Gloq as well. Also, since Boq doesn't have a surname, I have decided to make his surname Gillan, as James Gillan is my favourite Boq. Please rate and review, and keep a watch out for updates on both this story and my other one, Brother of a Witch. Rated K+ for now, and the title may change. So without further ado... enjoy!
Love At First SightBy SharkyTheBwayFreak
It was a sunny afternoon in Munchkinland, and thirteen-year-old Elphaba Thropp was taking her younger sister, Nessarose, for a wheel in the park. Thankfully, there weren't that many people around, which Elphaba was glad for; her green skin attracted unwanted attention from passers-by. This often resulted in teasing, bullying and occasionally fighting, and if it couldn't be any worse, the girls' father, Frex, would show up on the scene. Both sisters knew that Frex despised Elphaba, and no matter how much Nessa stood up for her sister, it continued.
Thankfully, Frex had not come along to the park with them. The only company the girls had, aside from each other, was a small, soft ball. Nessa, who had been confined to a wheelchair all her life, threw the ball as far as she could, while Elphaba would run and get it; she was a very good runner, and a very good catcher too.
"This is fun!," Elphaba yelled excitedly, running after the ball. Nessa had thrown it a long way, longer than she'd ever thrown it before. However, when the ball landed, Elphaba stopped. She gulped as she saw the ball had landed in the middle of the duck pond. If Elphaba even put a finger in the water, her skin would burn in a matter of seconds. Thus, Elphaba didn't feel comfortable being near the water, let alone touch it. She tried to think of what she could do to retrieve the ball, when suddenly she heard her name being called.
"Elphaba!" Nessa called, wheeling herself as fast as possible towards her. Elphaba noticed her sister was getting tired of wheeling herself, so she rushed to wheel her along. "Elphaba, where were you?," Nessa asked worriedly. "Where's the ball?" Elphaba pointed to the ball, which was floating around helplessly in the pond. "Oh," Nessa said. "Right."
Now both girls were bored and had nothing to do. Usually Elphaba had her nose stuck in a book, but she had never thought to bring one with her. Retrieving the ball was helpless; Elphaba's allergy to water prevented her from getting the ball, and Nessa couldn't get it as she couldn't get out of her wheelchair. It seemed all hope was lost, until...
"Excuse me, is this yours?"
Nessa looked up to see a teenage boy holding their ball in his hand. He was smiling at her. Studying the boy closer, Nessa could see that he was quite tall for a Munchkinlander, and he had dark brown hair that stuck up. He was wearing a light blue vest with a white shirt underneath, and he wore black trousers that looked a bit too small for him.
"Err... yeah!," said Nessa, who seemed to be in a little fantasy for some reason. Not taking her eyes off the boy, she took the ball from him and smiled. "My name is Nessarose Thropp," she said, holding out her hand for him to shake. "But just call me Nessa. And this is my sister, Elphaba. What's your name?"
"My name is Boq," the boy replied, "Boq Gillan." He bent down to where Nessa held out her hand, and kissed it. Although Boq didn't seem to notice, Nessa's smile grew wider. "Want to go for a walk?"
"Sure," replied Nessa. "You don't mind, do you, Elphaba?"
"I don't mind," Elphaba replied. As Boq got behind Nessa's chair and started to push her, Elphaba brought up the rear, smiling to herself. She was happy that her sister had found her first friend. Or could it be... no, it couldn't, could it?
It wasn't long before Nessa and Boq had bought some ice cream; each of them had three scoops of vanilla. Suddenly, Nessa dropped her ice cream on the grass, and several birds, or possibly Birds, flew down immediately to feed on it. Seeing the hurt in Nessa's eyes, Boq put his arm around her and handed her his ice cream, whilst he lay down on the grass, closed his eyes and went for a little nap.
As Boq slept, Nessa smiled to herself. For the first time in her life, she actually felt happy. She had always felt really happy around Elphaba, and although they got on well, Nessa didn't feel very close to her sister. She had finally found a boy who seemed to like her, and she could hear her heart beating wildly.
To Nessa, it was a love at first sight.
