Okay, let's get a few things straight here. Ropster is a character who will appear A LOT in my fics. She will mainly take role in the 'Ropster's Adventures' series (which I am writing the first chapter for, and the first story will be under Jak & Daxter), and was going to be in the 'Adventure' series (The other ones are referred to as 'Episodes'), however, I cancelled the idea for the 'Adventure' series. In this fic, she just plays as an OC.
Another thing, the Space Pirate attack on K-2L takes place when Samus is about twelve. And some things will be changed/mixed about. No flames, please, I'm a young writer who is trying to make a start. Also, this is my first Metroid fanfic. Enjoy!
Just a Child
Samus screamed loudly, ruffling her hair and shaking her head crazily. "Get it out! Get it OUT!" she squealed. Ropster laughed. Finally, Samus managed to get the spider out of her blonde hair. Ropster fell onto her back, crying out with laughter. Now Samus looked as if she had just got out of bed without brushing her hair for weeks. She clenched her fists and gritted her teeth, growling angrily. "That's the last time you annoy me this week, Ropster!" she exclaimed, picking up a handful of dirt from the ground and throwing it at Ropster. It hit her in the face, causing some mud stains. However, it was almost invisible in her brown, silky hair. Ropster rubbed her eyes with her hands, which made the dirt go deeper into her eyes. Samus laughed at her. But when she opened her eyes to see Ropster's reaction, she immediately stopped laughing. Ropster threw a mound of dirt at Samus, which made her hair dim, and made her clothes filthy. Ropster, however, had dark hair and very dark clothes, so it didn't matter to her. Besides, she was a rather mucky child.
After dusting the dirt off of her clothing, Samus stood up, then laughed, as did Ropster. Of course, these two were best friends, despite their many differences. Samus was a sweet girl who all of the boys would definitely fall for in the future. She wore a thin light-blue top with long-sleeves, and she wore indigo leggings. Her eyes were green, identical to Ropster's, and her hair was extremely short, but a stunningly bright blonde colour, which really stood out. Though, Samus could sometimes switch to a violent personality when she was angry. She was only six and already having a teenage crisis. Ropster, however, was a daredevil. She was afraid of certain things, but was the kind of child who didn't care how she looked or what danger she was getting herself into. She had almost-straight wavy brown hair, just going past shoulder length by about an inch and a half. She also wore a black V-neck T-shirt and black leggings. Samus sometimes called her "Ninja" because she wore black, also because she was an excellent fighter and a silent runner. Samus had experienced Ropster's fighting skills once – and she never wanted to again.
"Okay, now I'm bored," Ropster announced. "Me too," Samus compared. Ropster looked around. There was plenty of forest to explore. "Why don't we explore the forests?" she suggested. "And get lost forever? I don't think so," Samus responded. "We won't get lost, Sammy!" Ropster assured, smiling. "Unless you're just afraid of big scary monsters jumping out at you!" Samus rolled her eyes. "There are no monsters here on K-2L," she reminded. "I'm just messing with you!" Ropster replied, punching her shoulder. Unbeknownst to Ropster, she probably gave Samus a bruise.
"We're not going in the forest, and there's no way you're gonna make me," Samus finalized, rubbing her shoulder. "Fine, be a coward," Ropster reacted, heading through the trees and into the forest. Samus started walking the other way, until realizing that the forest had surrounded the area she was in, and that she was lost. She then decided to run the way Ropster went and follow her, only that there was no Ropster to follow.
Samus walked cautiously. "Ropster?" she called, quiet. No response. She then smirked and stopped. "Okay, Ropster, I know you're going to jump out of a tree and pretend to be a monster, so don't even try it or I'll smash your face!" she warned. Still no response. "And don't try making stupid noises, either!" Samus added.
All Samus could hear was the rustling of the breeze in the trees' leaves. She gulped. Now she was sure that she was alone. Lost.
With their parents…
Ebony and Virginia were now both worried. Their daughters should have been back half an hour ago. "Where could they possibly be?" Virginia asked. "I'm not sure," Ebony admitted. "I think Ropster might have decided to go into the forest to explore," "But this whole planet is forest; they could be anywhere!" Virginia reacted, panicking. "If they aren't back in the next half hour, then we may need to start a search party," Ebony planned. "But Rodney is busy mining!" Virginia reminded. "Rufo can help us. Along with a few others," Ebony assured. "And we have to help, as well."
There was still nothing, and Samus had been walking for ages. Though, she was sure that she had already been here. "Ropster, where are you?" she shouted out.
Ropster jumped from tree to tree, laughing silently. She had been following Samus the whole time. She truly was a ninja. But when Ropster was about to jump down onto Samus' back, she heard a noise, causing her to look to see where it came from. After a few moments, she targeted back at Samus, who was now gone from the spot. Now Ropster was lost.
Both of the two were now split up, and what Ropster didn't know was that she was going the complete opposite direction of Samus.
Still lost. She didn't even know how long she had been walking for. Suddenly, she saw something in the short distance. A group of people. And one she recognised – her father! "Daddy!" she shouted, running towards them. Her father turned his head. "Samus?" he asked. "What are you doing here?" "Ropster and I were in the forest, but we got separated and lost," Samus explained. "Lost?" Samus' father asked. "Is Ropster still out there?" In response, Samus nodded her head. "Alright, then. I'll take you back to mummy and then you and her can try finding her, okay?" her father suggested. Again, Samus nodded. Her father smiled, picking her up and carrying her back to his wife, Virginia.
Once the two were back, Virginia seemed relieved. "Samus, you're alright!" she said happily. "But where's Ropster?" "I don't know," Samus admitted. "We're looking for her," "Why does she always wander off?" Ebony asked. "We better find her."
"Go ninja, go ninja, go! Go ninja, go ninja, go!" Ropster sang, jumping from tree to tree. She then laughed a little. "Samus has got lost again!" she chuckled. "This always happens!" Jumping to the next tree, she realised that the branch was too weak to take her weight, snapping. Ropster attempted to jump up to the tenser branch, but failed, falling from the height.
Ropster screamed in sheer pain when she heard the crack coming from her leg. This was possibly the first time she cried in pain, probably because she's never been seriously injured before. Tears went down her face as she tried to move her leg, but it her too much. How would she get back if she couldn't walk?
Ebony heard Ropster screaming. "I think that was Ropster!" she informed the others. Rodney was no longer with them, instead it was Rufo. "Ropster never screams…" Samus pointed out. "She must really be in trouble!" Samus then ran off in the direction she heard the scream. "Samus, wait!" Virginia shouted to her daughter, running after her. Ebony and Rufo had to follow.
Samus started shouting for Ropster. "Ropster! Are you around here!"
Ropster heard Samus shouting. She was uncontrollably crying, unable to shout back. However, she just managed to stutter out,
Samus just managed to hear the muffled call. "I can hear her!" she informed the adults. She then ran off again. "Samus, please, stop running!" Virginia commanded, running after her again. This time Samus managed to find Ropster, laying down and clutching her leg. She ran over to her. "Ropster! Are you okay?" she asked. Ropster looked up with teary eyes. "Something's wrong with my leg…" she whimpered. The three adults then rushed over. Ebony picked her up carefully yet quickly. "Oh, Ropster! I was so worried about you! What happened?" she asked. "I-I was jumping through the trees… and a branch snapped!" Ropster managed to cry out. "Oh, you told me that you stopped doing that!" Ebony said, disappointed and worried. "But it was just so fun!" Ropster admitted. "But I think I'll stop now… Now I know how dangerous it really is… And it hurts!" "You were lucky you didn't fall and break your neck! We'd better get you back and see to that leg – it'll be a while before you get back outside in your condition."
-End of Chapter-
BEFORE YOU START FLAMING ABOUT HOW POINTLESS THIS CHAPTER WAS IT WAS JUST A CHARACTER INTRODUCTION. It's supposed to show how wimpy Samus was in her childhood, and how cocky Ropster was. It shows that Samus was a goody-two-shoes, always listening to her mother and using her common sense, but Ropster was cocky, dominant, daring, a bit stupid and even lied to her own mother, who cares for her dearly. The first, let's say 6, chapters will be going through years. This one is at age six, next will be age seven, then eight and you get the idea. See you in Chapter 2, age 7!
