Okay, this is first fan-fic so PLEASE go easy on me. As I said on my profile, I'll be introducing a character that will be used in most of my stories called Roxas Tailwind. This has got some references to Sonic and other things I like but Sonic WON'T be in this story but maybe in the future of this story (like Chapter 8 or further). Anyway enjoy!
Chapter 1 – The New Adventure
In the distance of San Francisco lives a city called Maxis. You are probably wondering that Maxis doesn't exist; well in the year 2022 there is one. Maxis is mostly like New York but it's much cleaner, has half of the population and not much in Broadway. It's an okay city to live in, although there is not much tourism.
Who am I you ask? Well I'm a student at Maxis Academy named Roxas Tailwind. I've been here for 3 years with my best friend Zephyr and my other friends Leox and Ruby. I'm 18 years of age, Zephyr and Ruby are 17 and Leox is 16 which makes me the oldest out of the group.
I look more like a biker with what I'm wearing; I wear a plain black t-shirt with no design. Over this t-shirt, I wear a dark red jacket with slate trimmings for the collar flaps and slate trimmings that cover the seams; each upper arm has a buckle that doesn't get removed. With this jacket, I have a collar that just reaches the top of my neck but below my jaw line. On the end of each collar there is a cobalt blue jewel which has been sealed into it by a rubber rim that connects the other jewel. For my lower body, I have dark blue denim jeans with black biker boots with a spiky design and lastly, I have long spiky hair that slightly goes up on each side of my head with cobalt blue highlights while my other spiky hair is more downwards. I have dark red eyes and on each eye I have a small cobalt blue arrow mark that points to my highlights. Why? Don't ask, I was born with it so I don't know why I got it.
Zephyr has dark green eyes, his hair is coloured dark green but is more down than my hair, his hair goes down then splits out like when you get split ends in hair. Zephyr also has a t-shirt and jacket but he doesn't look like a biker as much as I do. He has an aqua-blue t-shirt with wavy patterns like you see in the 1960s but it's actually one of those t-shirts where you dye a t-shirt wrapper in elastic bands. With the t-shirt, he also has a jacket like mine but instead of dark red, it's a forest green colour; he also has the same jewel as mine but its coloured lime green. Instead of slate coloured trimmings, he has turquoise coloured trimmings. For his lower body, he also has bright blue denim jeans but they look like he has had them for 2 years. For footwear, he has white trainers with an aqua-blue decoration on the outer side.
I think out of all of us, Leox is the quiet one out of the group; he never spoke a word, ever. Leox has dark brown spiky hair that is not the same as mine. His is more downwards and goes down to about half-way from his neck. He has dark blue eyes with blue glass goggles hanging from his neck and always wears a scarf that is decorated with blue and black stripes; he wears it always no matter what the weather is. He wears a creamy leather jacket which looks like to be honest like a spitfire pilot's jacket from the 1940s. For his lower body, Leox wears heavy canvas trousers and heavy black boots. Overall, he REALLY looks like a 1940s spitfire pilot.
Finally there's Ruby, the only girl of the group. She has short light brown hair that goes down to just below her jaw line; she has aqua-blue eyes. For her upper body, Ruby has a pink crop t-shirt and has got violet glow armbands on her wrists. For her lower body, she has denim shorts that reach half-way through her upper leg and she has aqua-blue sandals.
I was leaning my head on my hand which shows you I'm just bored to death with what I'm listening to, the history teacher. I'm the worst at this subject; I even got a D in the 10th Grade. I really don't care what grade I get in this year since I'm an orphan. That's right, I'm an orphan.
All I have in my family now is my aunt who lives somewhere in Texas, don't know exactly where in Texas. At home, I have 4 maids at home and have lived in a mansion for about 3 years. Why a mansion? Because my parents were part of a multi-million dollar company called Sonicboom Motoring; but when I was 3, they died in a fire somewhere near their office. Since then, my aunt took care of me until I was old enough to go to Maxis Academy. And here I am, bored to death with another one of the teacher's history speeches; I would normally listen to music if I'm bored but this academy doesn't let you listen in class.
The good news was that school was about to end in 3 minutes. I couldn't wait really; I am impatient when it comes to time, even if it was just 3 minutes. All I wanted to do was just talk to my friends. I go back home when it's about 6 or 8 at night (I inform my maids on what time I get back). The school bell rang and as soon as I heard it, I was immediately packing up; this was how urgent I was to getting out. But just to be natural to everyone else, I was standing up when everybody else was, just to avoid embarrassment.
5 minutes later, all 4 of us where outside the front doors talking. Zephyr was the first to speak up. "You really wanted to get out of that classroom didn't you? Zephyr asked sarcastically. "Yes I wanted to get out of there! You know I hate history out of all the subjects!" Roxas exclaimed. "I like history a bit actually but only certain bits like Ancient Greece or Ancient Egypt" Ruby replied to me. Leox looked at us with his arms crossed, he looks like he's deep in thought.
The next thing I saw was a shadow of a figure that I know all TOO well. "Roxas, I challenge you to a race!" shouted a voice behind me. As soon as I heard this I thought 'Oh crap...' and I turned around to where the voice came from. It came from Blitzer, my rival since I came to the Academy.
Blitzer has forest colour eyes and hair that looks like it's been blitz out ofa cannon (basically 50 bullets in one pull of a trigger); its jet black. For his upper body he has a black leather jacket with a plain crimson red t-shirt. For his lower body, he wears black jeans and wears black shoes that are similar to Leox's ones but they look brand new.
When he said 'I challenge you to a race!'; he says this to me about once a week. I do get tired of him saying it but I like racing; I'm always up for challenges even if I lose to them. "Alright then, you're on Blitzer!" Roxas replied. Both Blitzer and I stared at each other for a while until Blitzer broke the silence. "Whoever reaches Maxis Park wins" Blitzed said informally.
Me and Blitzer got into our starting positions; while my friends were cheering on for me except Leox who was just watching me. "3...2...1...GO!" Zephyr shouted. As soon as he said go, both me and Blitzer started running. I was lucky enough that he didn't push me as soon as the race started; Blitzer sometimes does that to me but only if he urgently wants to win. I saw my friends going their way towards the park. Me and Blitzer were neck-to-neck but when the park was in front of us, Blitzer went slightly faster than me and reached the park first. I lost.
I didn't feel gutted about my loss, I felt slightly happier since that was fun. To be honest, I only won once out of all the races Blitzer challenged me to. I was panting out for about 30 seconds until I looked at Blitzer and said "Thanks for the race, it was fun". As soon as I said that I heard something that I hear mostly every time we race; "You know you always lose when you're against me, so why bother?" I replied "Because I told you, I did it for the fun of it". All Blitzer said to me after that was "Hmph...whatever" and then walked off.
Later, all 4 of us sat on a slightly steep hill at the park and talked some more; in the summer, all 4 of us have sea-salt ice cream every day here. The one question that bugged me was what Zephyr asked me "Why do you think his races are fun? You know he's just humiliating you". I thought about it for a while and then answered his question. "I only get humiliated when his friends are around but I guess every time I race, I always like the feel of the wind passing through me or that I always wished to be faster than anyone else, including Blitzer". Everyone was silent for a moment but Ruby broke the silence then asked me "Is that your dream or desire?" I stared at Ruby thinking about what she said then answered "Yeah, I always dreamt of going faster, what are you a genie?" Everyone started laughing as soon as I said that, even Leox.
I stared at the clock that was in the park, and realisation struck me. "Oh no! I got to get home in 10 minutes! See ya guys!" I did a quick goodbye wave and started running to my mansion. My friends waved back but I didn't get the chance to see them.
I arrived at my mansion with just 2 minutes to spare; I walked to the front doors and opened them but no one welcomed me yet. My mansion was large and spacious, too large for just 5 people which are me and 4 other maids. One of my maids came up to me and said "Welcome Master Roxas, what would you like for supper?" I immediately said "Pasta bake please". Pasta bakes are my favourite food. My maid bowed slightly to me and said "Right away Master Roxas". She was about to walk into the kitchen but then said "Thanks Helen and please don't call me 'Master' just 'Roxas' would be fine". Helen smiled back to me. Helen was the cook out of all the maids, the other 3 were cleaners. My 3 cleaners were called Tanya, Jasmine and Miranda.
45 minutes later, supper was ready to eat and in just 2 minutes, I finished it. THAT is how much I LOVE it. "Thanks Helen, that was a lovely meal" I said complementally. Helen gave me a lovely smile and in return I bowed and went to my room. I got my stuff ready for tomorrow, got dressed and went straight to sleep; I was tired after all.
Well, what do you think? Good? Not Good? The story does get better, honestly just keep reading I'll get more chapters written and please review back.
