Opening Notes:

I got this idea for the plot by reading Shakespeare's, The Taming of the Shrew and watching the movie, 10 Things I Hate About You. I'm not sure if anyone else used it before but as far as I know, no one has.

By the way, this is a dick-head free fic so don't be expecting someone in particular with balls on the top of their head here.


Chapter One: The Beginning Of It All

A jet black BMW pulled up at a school parking lot driven by a teenager. He had on sunglasses and a black hat, his braid hanging in the back.

The boy lowered his sunglasses a bit, positioned on the tip of his nose, and stared at the High School ahead. "Juuban High School" in white was labeled on the building.

Here I go…  the boy sighed as he opened the car door and got out.

He got his backpack before shutting the door and headed towards the school with his hands in his pocket.


A blue haired student was in the middle of taking her books out of her locker for her first class.

Oh shoot! I'm going to be delayed! If only Minako had woken up early for school! Ami complained when realizing she was running late.

She hurried now, placing her period's books in a pile. Normally she was organized but today wasn't a very good day for her. Closing the locker, Ami began to walk quickly to her classroom.

She saw a couple of other students hanging around their lockers, not caring if they were going to miss any valuable schoolwork. One of the boys had waved and winked at her, making her blush.

Darn it! Ami grumbled as she quickened her pace, trying to hide her face behind her books.

The boy who had recently waved was one of the bad boys who, she found out, had a crush on her. But she didn't feel the same way back. She was what they called a good girl. She wasn't into tough guys like many of the girls in her school.

Ami was also more of a shy girl. She could never control her blushes if there happened to be any guy hitting on her, even if she didn't like them. Everyone in the school knew this as well. Someone even gave her the nickname, "Shy Ami." She hated that name, but she knew it was true.

Ami let out a long sigh as she was about to turn the corner. And BAM, books, papers, and pens went flying.

"Oh, sorry!" a male voice apologized as Ami sat up from the floor.

The person she had bumped into was pretty strong for she noticed he was still standing perfectly well on his own two feet. He had on a black hat and sunglass covering his eyes. It made him look mysterious to her… in a way.

"Its okay," the blue haired smiled warmly as she gathered her things rapidly.

As she began to get up, she felt his strong arms helping her on the way. Ami looked up at the boy and noticed that he had pulled his sunglasses off and was now looking at her straight in the eye with gorgeous cobalt blue/violet orbs.

My word…  she thought as she couldn't help but stare.

She was knocked out of the trance when he smiled, making her blush, and asked, "What's your name?"

"Uh... Ami...," she said timidly, tearing her gaze away from his eyes and looked down at her feet.

"Ami? What a beautiful name. Mine's Duo. Duo Maxwell at your service." the guy in front of her introduced.

Duo… what a cute name. Ami thought as she looked at him again and smiled back, "Nice to meet you, Duo."


Duo couldn't believe how beautiful this girl in front of him was. Her indigo eyes matched her hair, making her look very cute. He could tell she was a bit shy but didn't care. It wasn't frequent when he came to a new school and bumped into a good-looking babe.

"So where're you heading to, Ami?" he asked after a few seconds of silence passed.

But this only made the girl anxious and quickly darted her eyes at the clock near by.

"Oh no! I'm late!" she let out as she swiftly ran pass him. "Nice meeting you Duo! But I have to go!" she called over her shoulders, running.

Duo watched her dash away from him before he remembered something. "Hey wait! I want to see you again!"

"We'll see each other now and then!" Ami called back.

"No! I mean... do you want to have lunch with me?"

Ami stopped dead on her tracks as she spun around to face him. She was speechless as she looked at him dumbfounded. Duo grinned at her expression.

"So is that a yes?"

"Uh... y-yeah, s-sure. I'll see you... later then." Ami stuttered.

Duo's grin widened. "Great, see ya then."

Ami stared at him for a second more before turning back and heading for her class. Watching her leave Duo let out a quiet silent  YES! and began to head for the principal's office.


Closing Notes:

Review/flame please. And yes, this is an Ami/Duo fic and a Minako/Heero fic. I'm not sure about Rei or Makoto so vote on those two for the parings.
