Hey! This a new and first story by moi :). Last night, I had gotten the sudden urge to create a story (which was a pretty stupid time on my part considering I have exams next week :|), and had some fun ideas that I wanted to be put down on paper.
The full title of this story was 'My life is simple LOL jk, you obviously haven't met Axel', but I couldn't fit it in which kinda sucks cos I think this title sounds better :/ ah well. Ha all you facebook users probably know it was obviously inspired from the LOL jk groups :P
So yh, I've always wanted my first fic to be a AkuNami as I don't feel theres enough of them around. I absolutely love the pair and wanted to spread the AkuNami love :3
There's also a few factors that I think you should consider when reading this,
1.I'm from England, however I've tried to mix in some American terms such as using 'mom' instead of 'mum' and so on and so fourth. However, there is still some English slang in there so your welcome to ask what they mean if your unsure. I've also tried to mix the school system up as well, (along with making up stuff as well lol) so I've used High School, freshman, juniors etc but will be including my own experiences of school, this relating to what the lessons will be like, homework, grades etc.
2. For this chapter, I didn't plan beforehand and so made it up as I went along. The summary of this fic won't relate to this chapter at all but most probably the second or third chapter. Sorry if it confuses you when you read this lol. I'm just about satified with it, but not 100% pleased. I don't think it flows very well, and there are some things I'd like to re-write. Ahh well, hopefully I'll find my mojo when I get into the story a bit more.
3.I'm aware that my writing style does change consistently though out this chapter. One minute its detailed, while the next its purely dialect. Ha it's a bit of a mess tbh but I'm kind of still in the midst of deciding what style to use for the continuation of this story. I'm tempted to do it all in Namine's POV? I dunno, I guess it depends on whether you guys like it or not :)
Sorry you had to read all of that lol, I felt that it was important that yous needed to know those factors. So imma stop rambling and I hope you enjoy the first chapter :)
BTW, just to warn you theres another authors note at the end! Aha sorry

Meeting the RGU Students
As the alarm clock continued to ring, Namine turned in her bed, reading the clock to be 7.45.
'Looks like I better get up' she thought, with a smile soon growing on her face. She was some what, in an unusually happy mood. She was never this happy. Not at this time of the day anyway. With a slight skip in her step, she abruptly got up and went towards the bathroom down the hall.
Quickly washing her face and brushing her teeth, she wondered back to room and into her walk-in closet, searching for something suitable to wear for yet another day of school. Deciding to wear a high waisted acid-washed denim skirt, and a simple white tank top tucked into it, she preceded to her jewellery box, pulling out an arrangement of long chained vintage necklaces, a ring with the scrabble letter 'N' glued on and a pair of plain pearl earrings. Moving towards her vanity table, she applied her make up which consisted of a coating of mascara, a thin rim of black eye liner across her top lid and on her waterline making her pale blue eyes pop out even more, and a quick brush of pink blush across the apples of her cheeks. She tied up her blonde strands into a messy bun, making sure it look like it had some thought put into yet looked unkempt at the same time.
Going back to her room, she quickly checked her alarm clock once again, for it to read this time 8.20.
'Shiit, I better get a move on if I want to get in on time'.
Quickly grabbing her worn satchel bag and putting on her military styled brown ankle boots, she legged it down the stairs, deciding last minute she didn't have enough time to make something to eat. Locking the door behind her, she jumped on her scooter, not forgetting to put on her goggles and helmet of course, and started her 10 minute drive to Destiny High Academy.
It was Namine's last year at Destiny High, meaning she was a senior and soon turning 18, her birthday wasn't til June. 'Eurgh, I hate being one of the youngest in the year' she thought, as she indicated right at the next set of traffic lights.
By the time she reached the school, it was 8.34, which meant she had enough time to get to her first lesson as well as spend a few minutes with her beloved, spunky, ebony haired best friend. Speaking of the Devil...
"XIOOONN!", before the poor girl could turn around, she was tackled by the blond, nearly receiving a head concussion in the process from said girls helmet.
"What's gotten you in such a good mood this morning? No ones ever this happy at this absurd time of the day'" Xion laughed, as she preceded to unwrap Namine's arms from around her neck.
Xion today was sporting a cream dress-styled vest top, with a pair of leopard print tights (as the dress was quite short), a thick brown waist belt, and a lone long chained necklace with a flower printed cameo on the end.
The two had been best friends since freshman year, having been assigned as lab partners in science. Since then they've hit it off, spending as much time in and out of school with each other, having sleep-overs, telling each other secrets, and picking out ugly people in the street saying it was the others boyfriend . You know the usual; the stupid things you usually do with your best friend.
"What can I say? It's a beautiful day, the birds are singing, not a single cloud in the sky..."Namine looked up to the sky with a look of wonder to emphasize her point. Xion however continued to stare at her, with a dead-panned look spread across her face.
"What? Am I not allowed to be this happy?"
"Stop giving me that look!"
"I just have a feeling that today's gonna be a good day, Ok? Jeeze woman, no need to get all aggy with me."
"I was not being aggy!" Xion replied, hands placed upon her hips and facial expression finally changing from impassive to one that looked more irked. "It's just unusual seeing you this happy on a school morning, tis all".
"Haha I know, I just wanted you to stop giving me that stupid look. Now come my fellow bum chum, we have lessons to attend to and a certain Mr Leonheart to eye rape for a whole hour and a half." Grin plastered on her face, Namine grabbed the hand of her pixie haired friend and skipped towards the entrance of the school building.
"That was the best 90 minutes of my life!"
"If he wasn't a teacher, I would so totally tap that."
The two best friends had just finished their History lesson with Mr Leonheart, which you could say was...productive, depending on what way you looked at it. Whilst most students took notes on the war that took place in Wutai, Namine and Xion commented on how nice his ass looked in those leather pants. Yes, that lesson had indeed been productive.
"Hey Nams, we've got that open day at Radiant Garden University today don't we? Are we suppose to meet the others at the front?"
"Oh my god, I totally forgot about that! Is that today?" Namine asked, pale blue eyes wide from the realisation that the open day was today.
"Yup, I think we have to meet at the coach in the school car park".
Namine had completely forgot that the rest of their lessons for the day were cancelled due to their visit to Radiant Garden University. As it was their last year of high school it was time to apply for universities, and as a result there were open days where undergraduates were invited to have a tour of the campus, talk to lecturers and professors as well as explore the environment of their chosen subject they wanted to pursue a career in.
Namine already had an idea what she wanted to study and gain a degree in, but what university that shall be was still a question.
"I heard Radiant Garden is well known for its success in creative arts, I'm sure this could be a good choice for you Nams considering you want to aspire a degree in fine art", Xion stated, as if she had just read the blondes mind.
"Mehh , we'll see".
The two teens had finally reached the coach. Well, it wasn't exactly a coach, more like a mini-bus. There was roughly 16 of them, that excluding the teacher who was accompanying them; Mrs Harp.
"Hey I thought Riku was coming with us today?" At the mention of the boys name, Xion's cheeks turned into a light shade of pink; which of course didn't go unnoticed by the blonde.
"You both blatantly fancy each other, when are you going confess your love for each other?" Namine exclaimed. By this stage, that lovely shade of pink across Xion's cheeks was now covering the whole of her face. Heh heh, teasing Xion was always fun.
"It's not like that Na-"
"O really?" Namine interjected, with a delicate blonde eyebrow raised, "because from what I've seen at every school party that we've been to, you two always seem to end up sucking each others faces off by the end of the night"
By now a tomato would even be envious of the shade Xion's face was emitting.
"Gosh, when is he gonna get spunkey and release the monkey-"
"NAMINE!". If you looked closely, you would be able to see the vain that was threatening to pop out of her neck...
"Ok, ok, jeeze I was just kidding.."
"...but we don't want you getting preggers now, so I'll warn him to house his noodle before he releases his strudel!".
Before Xion could as far as touch her soon-to-be ex-best friend, with a quick 'Eep!' Namine successfully escaped her clutches and scampered into the mini bus for safety.
"I GOTTA FEELING, WOOHOOOO, THAT TONIGHTS GONNA BE A GOOD NIGHT, THAT TONIGHTS GONNA BE A GOOD GOOD NIGHT-"
"TONIGHTS THE NIGHT, LETS LIVE IT UP"
"I GOT MY MONEY, LET'S SPEND IT UP"
"GET OUT AND SMASH IT, LIKE OH MAH GOD"
"JUMP OFF THAT SOFA, LETS GET GET OFFFF"
"Oh come on Xi-Xi, your not still mad at me?"
"I said I was kidding! Riku's a responsible young man, I'm sure he won't need warning to cover his-"
Xion shot Namine a cold glare, which looked even more fierce with her icy blue eyes, stopping the blonde from finishing her sentence. The two were now on the mini-bus, half way through their journey to Radiant Garden University. The university was 2 hours away from Destiny Islands; a collection of small islands put together. Namine and Xion lived on the mainland which was the number one hot spot for tourists in the summer.
Their mini-bus had just gotten off the ferry, and so they still had an hour left off the journey. Which also meant it had been an hour since Xion had talked to Namine...
"Pleaseee talk to me Xion! I'm sorry ok? I was stupid for saying those things. I didn't mean any of them". Namine preceded to pout and gave the most saddest puppy dog eyes she could muster.
"I hate it when we don't talk..." She whispered, bottom lip trembling. Of course this was all an act, but Xion had to give the girl some credit for trying.
"Erh, fine! But I swear, if I hear one more joke about me and Riku from you, I will personally make sure that you won't be coming back on this bus!"
"Ouch, your such a grouch. OH MY GEE THAT JUST RHYMED"
"You know, if you continue to frown like that those wrinkles are going to be a permanent feature to your beautiful face."
"Namine, shut up. Just shut up".
After another hour of agonising silence, in Namine's case, the mini-bus had finally reached its destination. All the kids scrambled out the automobile, happily inviting the the cool breeze that welcomed them. Being cramped in a stuffy bus for 2 hours was not nice.
"Ok Ladies and Gents, we are here at Radiant Garden University-"
"No shit sherlock" Xion giggled at the comment made by Namine. Luckily for them they were near the back so Mrs Harp wasn't able to hear the outspoken...observation so delicately put by the blonde.
"-and I want you all to be on your best behaviour. You are representatives of Destiny High Academy. Don't forget, this trip if benefit for you, not me, so if you-"
As Mrs Harp continued to give the same speech she always gave to every outing they went to, Namine took the time to observe the campus. It was big that's for sure. At the minute they were situtated, what looked to be, the main entrance of the building.
'It sort of looks like a castle... but modern' thought Namine. The 5 storey building walls were made from some sort of grey brick, which was deteriorating and had a few cracks. The large glass windows and marbled steps, which they were currently standing on, was what made the building look more modern.
Without even realising it, the group had entered the building, giving Namine a chance to observe the interior. The floor was now made out of an old mahogany coloured wood, again giving the idea that the building was old. However, the brightly coloured walls, air conditions and computers situated on the reception desk contrasted with it, giving the sense of 'freshness' to the aged architecture.
The group were then given a tour of the whole campus site, which all looked the same according to Namine, given by one of the professors at the university.
"What was his name again? Daniel? Derek? Davis?" questioned Xion.
"I don't know, I thought it was Ralph" Xion rolled her eyes at her blonde companion. She obviously wasn't paying one bit of attention.
"Does it really matter?" replied Namine, trying to defend herself.
"Well, your gonna look a bit of a wang  calling him Ralph throughout the whole day."
" Tsk. Whatever. Potato potarto." The noir haired girl had to put in effort to prevent her eyes from rolling once again.
The group were now stationed in a fairly large class room. Around them were an alignment of chairs, all positioned into small circles.
"Ok guys, we're now going to disperse you into smaller groups, where you'll get to hear the views of students from this very college. You'll get to ask them anything you like, of course not anything" He said, raising his eyebrows up and down in a perverted kinda way. He couldn't help but snort at his own joke, Mrs Harp releasing a small giggle as well.
'Ha, funny guy'
'Oh God, what a complete goon '
"Was that even a joke?" asked Namine, her face portraying of one that looked slightly disturbed.
"Pfft, probably just trying to impress Mrs Harp. The two have been giving each other the eye since we got here. Though they would make quite a cute couple...for old people." Namine's face soon turned to one of absolute disgust, turning to stare at the other girl.
"Xion you make me sick" She spat jokingly, "I think I'm just gonna head to the bathroom and vom all over the toilet" The noir headed girl smirked as Davis or Ralph continued his talk.
"Well lets begin shall we? The RGU students are waiting outside, so when I let them in I'll get them to introduce themselves one by one. Their all only a few years older than yourselves, and they'll all range from being first years to it being their very last year in this college." Dalph (Namine and Xion decided to merge their 2 suggestions of his name together to prevent any more arguing) preceded to the door to let the students in.
They all came striding in, there being 5 in total. 2 girls and 3 guys. One of the men at the end however, was what caught Namine's attention.
He had ferocious, spiky apple red hair, each individual spike heading into a direction of its own. It brushed down his neck and ended at the top of the his shoulders. The spikes framed his tanned face, making his his high cheekbones more pronounced and angular chin more noticable. His eyes were what captivated (as well as his hair) Namine the most. Beautiful, green emeralds with a tint of acidness to it. Below them was what looked to be narrow, overturned tear drop shaped tattoos.
He was stunning. Beautiful even.
Continuing to observe him a little more, she checked out the rest of his slender body. He was tall thats for sure, and slightly lanky. However, his toned muscles made up for it. The v-neck and thin material of his wrinkled short-sleeved white shirt revealed his accented collar bone, as well as the upper part of his chest and arms. His legs were covered by a pair of slightly skinny but well-fitted dark jeans and were finished off with some tattered black converse. He had an assortment of man bracelets and beads on one arm, and a lone ring that said ACID on the other arms thumb. His left ear was stretched, not too big though, roughly the size of a thumbtack, which had a long black taper passing through it.
All in all, he was hot.
'I think I just jizzed in my pants'
Her obvious staring however, didn't go unnoticed by her ebony headed friend.
"You are totally stripping him naked with your eyes. You sly dog you".
A slight pink tint decorated Namine's cheeks, as she peeled her eyes away from the beautiful red headed man to the girl next to her.
O yes, revenge was sweet.
"No I weren't", Namine blurted, her cheeks increasing in colour.
"Bull shit. You were practically salivating on the spot. You've still got a bit off drool on the corner of your mouth by the way". On instinct, Namine quickly wiped her mouth with the back of her hand, her face replicating that of Xion's earlier that day. Xion's smirk turned into a full-out grin, soon erupting into pools of laughter.
"I hate you"
"Haha, oh my god my stomach hurts, I think I'm dying". Holding her stomach whilst bent over, she placed her hand on Namine's shoulder, trying to contain her laughter.
The noise emitted from Dalph quickly gained Xion's and Namine's attention, both abruptly standing up straight and turning their attention to the rest of the class. Everyone was indeed staring at them, the girls not having realised this earlier. Amongst them, was the sex devil himself. A small smirk was in place with those beautiful pink lips of his.
It didn't take long for Namine's face to match the colour of said sex devils hair.
'I want to punch myself in the face. Oh Gawd, kill me now, this is so embarrassing. I bet he's laughing in the inside. Stupid Xion and her stupid comments'.
"As I was saying before we were interrupted," Dalph continued, "Would you five like to introduce yourselves to the class now".
The first guy stepped forward. He had dirty blonde hair which was unusually styled into some sort of cross between a mullet and a mohawk, which was accompanied by a pair of sea-green, blue eyes.
'He's kinda cute'. Concluded Namine.
He broke out into a grin, "Hey! My names Demyx Milson, and I'm in my second year of my Music Foundation Degree Course".
Xion was obviously thinking on the same lines of Namine, "He's adorable,"
Namine nodded in response as the next student stepped forward, this time being one of the girls.
"Hi!" She exclaimed cheerfully. "I'm Yuffie Kisaragi, the single White Rose of Wutai,"at the mention of this, nearly everyone lifted a single eyebrow simultaneously "and I'm a freshman, doing a joint honours of Physical Education and Psychology".
The third student in line was the last of the girls. She had beautiful brown hair, that cascaded down the back of her neck and ended just past her shoulders. She had deep, almost red, brown eyes and a bust to die for.
"Her boobs are huge" whispered Namine, as the girl, well woman, stepped forward with a small smile gracing her lips.
"Hello, my names Tifa Lockhart and I am in my second year of my Medical degree".
Next the fourth guy stepped forward. He had unruly blonde hair that stuck in all directions, clear blue eyes, and a pale complexion. He had also done well in the muscles department, having well-built arms and chest.
"What's up with guys and having odd hair-dos?"
"Who cares, he's hot" replied Xion, watching the blonde step forward and take his turn.
"My names Cloud Strife, and I'm on my second year of my Photography Foundation Degree Course".
Namine liked him, which was slightly biased as she was an art student herself. She appreciated all forms of art, photography being one of her favourites. Plus he was hot. Though not as hot as the last guy who had yet to introduce himself.
Stepping forward and brushing a hand through those beautiful spikes, he placed both hands into his jean pockets, his demeanor oozing coolness and giving the aura that he was a laid-back kinda guy.
"The names Axel," 'Oh gawd even his voice is pure sexiness. He definitely comes with the whole package.'
"thats A-X-E-L, and I'm on my second year of doing my Law degree. Commit it to memory"
'Yup', Namine concluded. Today was definitely going to be a good day.
 This is something me and my best friend do all the time. We find ugly people on the street, tv, magazines etc and take the mick saying it was the others boyfriend :p
& Yeah these are english slang /terms/insults (I think?) I'm not sure, or it might be just different in the context you use it.
And there we go first chapter! What did you think? :) Like it? Hated it? Leave a review and tell me what you think.
I don't know when my next update will be. It'll most likely be the end of next week (which is the end of my exams) as I really need to do some hardcore revision. Hopefully I'll even have a rough plan of the whole story by then. It mostly depends whether I get a good response to this or not. You may even be lucky enough to get an update by the end of this week as I have a good idea of how I want the next chapter to go :)
Til' next time m'lovlies!
