Edd walked through the hallways of his new high school, the new surroundings only a painful reminder of how he could never return to Peach Creek. How could he have misjudged the situation so horribly? He was the moral compass of the group of three, shouldn't he have seen the repercussions to his actions?
"This shouldn't have happened." He mumbled melancholically. He bumped shoulders with a large boy wearing a red beanie. The boy whirled on him menacingly.
"Hey! Watch it, Nerd!" He growled.
"Sorry..." Double D mumbled, still walking.
Suddenly he was roughly grabbed and slammed into a locker. "Don't you walk away from me punk! Gimme your lunch money." The large boy said threateningly.
Double D, instead of being afraid, glared at him angrily. He did not need this. "Unhand me you big dumb ape!" He yelled furiously kicking out at him.
The boy sneered, his poor hygiene evident from his yellow teeth. "Wrong answer, bub!" He raised his fist to strike. "Sperg!" An emotionless, but commanding, female voice called out.
The boy, whom Edd assumed to be Sperg, dropped him, eyes wide with fear. Double D looked in the direction of the voice. It was a blonde girl wearing a permanent scowl on her face, Her hair in an up-do held together by a black headband. Behind her stood an unintelligent looking boy with a large nose in a red hat. "I'm pretty sure I told you that this is my hallway." She said, the word "my" dripping with venom.
Sperg took a few steps back, raising an arm in defense as if expecting to be hit "Um, No, I mean, Yeah, Uh, I mean, I'm Sorry!" He said, smiling nervously.
She checked her nails casually. "I'm feeling unusually generous today, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say it's because you're stupid." Her jet black eyes went back to him. "Because you would never deliberately disobey me, would you Sperg?"
Sperg backed away. "N-no. I-I would never…" He said.
"Good boy. So I'll give you till the count of three…" She started.
Sperg disappeared before she even had the opportunity to count. The boy standing behind him giggled. "I think Sperg crapped his pants that time." He said gleefully.
Double D turned to them gratefully. "Thank you. I'm Edward. But everyone calls me Double D." He said.
The girl studied him carefully. Edd shivered. It felt like she was staring into his soul. "Hmm… I'm Mandy." She said finally.
"I'm Billy. But you can call me…Billy." He said, then giggled.
Mandy pinched the bridge of her nose. "Excuse my friend, he's an idiot. Anyways, it took some nerve standing up to Sperg like that. You were out of your league but at least you didn't scream and cry." She said shooting Billy a look.
"Hey, he gave me a purple nurple!" Billy said defensively.
Mandy rolled her eyes and held her hand out. "Give me your schedule." She demanded.
Edd obeyed, thinking that doing otherwise would be a bad idea. Mandy looked it over. "We've got the same classes. Follow me." She said and walked off without another word.
"But…" She glared back him, cutting off any further conversation. Edd sighed and followed with Billy hopping alongside him. His first day at his new school was going weirder than expected.
Edd stood, mouth wide open and as pale as a ghost, face-to-skull with the Grim Reaper himself. Grim looked at Mandy. "What's his problem?"
"He's not from here." Mandy said.
"Chill out, kid. You're good for another forty years." He said.
Double D took a few deep breaths, trying to relax. "You know the Grim Reaper?" He asked disbelievingly.
Billy laughed. "Yeah, he's our best friend forever!"
"Long story short, I lost a bet." Grim said miserably.
"And now he does anything we want." Mandy said with a tone of superiority.
Double D thought for a long while. 'Maybe I could ask for power. No one would mess with me then. But wait, I just met these people. Is it really right to ask for such a selfish wish?'
Mandy stared at him as he thought. He soon realized that she was staring and looked up. "Is something wrong?" He asked.
She blinked and shook her head, chiding herself for staring at him so strangely. What was that all about? "Nothing. What are you thinking?" She asked.
"Nothing, just…Could I ask him for something?"
She gave him one of those soul stares then nodded curtly.
"You have supernatural powers right?" He asked Grim.
"I don't like where this is going…but yeah." He said uneasily
"Do you think…that you could give me your powers?" Double D asked uncertainly.
Grim's laughter at the question boomed out. "No." He said simply.
Grim looked at Mandy, surprised. "Look, I can't just give away powers to every neighborhood kid that asks for it. I have to maintain some kind of balance, you know."
Mandy looked at him. "I said, Do it."
Mandy's glare intensified.
"Bah! Alright, alright." He said, his scythe appearing in his hand.
"Before you do…" She said looking to Edd. "Your allegiance is to me, understand? You belong to me, and me alone. And the moment you betray me is the moment your life ends. Do you understand?"
Double D began to sweat. He nodded slowly. "Y-yes. I-I understand…"
"Take the handle, boy." He said holding it out.
Edd swallowed and nervously took the handle with a shaky, clammy hand. At first nothing happened. Then, he gave a shout as red electricity coursed through his body. He could feel it changing him, making him something…incredible. He convulsed violently as the transformation neared completion. When it finished, he fell to his knees, still shaking. Smoke rose from his body, and his clothes and hat were singed. He coughed into his fist.
"I'll look into getting you a scythe, but for now you should be satisfied." He said, scythe disappearing.
"What can I do?" He asked weakly.
"Practically anything. Telekinesis, Flying, Teleportation, the list goes on. I draw my power from my scythe, but you draw yours from your body, which is much more dangerous. So be careful not to exhaust yourself." Grim explained.
"How do I use it…" He croaked.
"Will it to happen and it will happen." Grim said simply.
"…Th-Thank you…" He said before passing out.
Eddy woke up with a nasty headache. "What are you doing here?" A voice asked him.
He opened his eyes, trying to see the speaker. A fuzzy image of a kid with glasses and all black clothes came into view. "I…Don't know." He said, not sure why he was even here.
The last thing he remembered was an explosion, a black hole, and Ed screaming his name. He put a hand to his forehead. "Where am I?" He asked.
"The underworld." The boy stated plainly.
Eddy sighed. "Oh." Then his brained registered what he had just said. "THE WHAT!" He yelled.
A/N: This seems like a good place to put a cliffhanger. Please don't complain about Double D's vocabulary, I'm well aware he doesn't sound like a nerd. Anyways, Read & Review please
