Choices

Summary: When everyone seems to be falling in love with naïve Mikan, hell erupts as jealousy appears at its best… And we'll see how far the guys will go to become Mikan's choice…


Prologue

"Who the heck is that?" a young man at the age of nineteen asked as his eyes followed a beautiful girl talking animatedly with her friends.

"That's Mikan Sakura, obviously. Where on earth have you been?" a girl at the same age asked as her eyebrow furrowed questioningly.

"Well, I don't really get out that much." the young man defended and the girl looked at him and muttered 'nerd' under her breath which made the young man glare at her. "Anyway, so is she taken?"

"No." the girl simply replied.

"That's good then." The young man said and smiled.

"But don't get any ideas. She's off limits." the girl added as he saw the desire in his eyes.

"Why's that?" he said and frowned.

"She's a nice girl, don't get me wrong. But it would be better for your health to stay at the admiring zone than go and try to win her over." the girl explained seriously.

"Huh? But you just said she's not taken. Is anyone courting her then?" the man inquired, confused.

The girl shook her head.

"No one and I don't think there will ever be unless some of those guys over there finally have some courage to do just that." she said motioning to the guys that were in the same table as the girl he was fancying. They were three guys all in all and they don't really look dangerous at all.

"So they all like her huh?" he asked with a raised eyebrow.

The girl nodded.

"They don't look that dangerous besides, I'm older than them. What could they possibly do to me?" the guy said arrogantly.

The girl looked at him with disbelief. Did this guy get abducted by aliens or something?

"You really don't get out much huh? You're so lucky I happen to pass by when you asked who she was." the girl said as she sighed heavily. "You see that guy over there, the one who's in front of Mikan, that's Ruka, he can control animals, the other guy beside her is Tsubasa, he's as old as us and can manipulate shadows and the last guy, Natsume Hyuuga, is the most dangerous of all, he has the fire alice. And plus, that girl beside her is very protective when it comes to Mikan. She's also her best friend; her name's Hotaru." The girl explained.

The young man smirked.

"I see but you must know that I have an alice that can make anyone do my will by just listening to my voice."

The girl shook her head again.

"That's not going to work and besides as I pointed out earlier, they all like her and although they would never admit it in a million years, Mikan already has eno-"

But before the girl even finished what she was saying, she was cut off.

"And so, that solves the problem. I'm going there then." he said and left without another word.

The girl shook her head and sighed. She had tried to warn him so it wasn't her fault that the guy will be in the medical ward for a few weeks right? She thought as she looked helplessly from afar as the guy she was talking to earlier, got beaten to a bloody pulp with no one from the table even standing up while the girl he admired was still oblivious to what has happened to him.

"Another one huh?" a boy said as he walk towards the girl.

"Yeah, you guys just never learn." The girl said exasperatedly.

"Hey, hey, don't blame us, blame her." The guy said as he motioned to the girl called Mikan.

The girl rolled her eyes.

"And why would I do that? I don't even see what you guys see in her." the girl said, jealousy apparent in her voice. "She's just your typical next door girl, you know."

The guy smiled fondly, his gaze softening as his eyes fell over Mikan.

"It must be because she's like forbidden fruit," the guy said, almost jokingly. "But you know that it's like an old age rule, we always want what we can't have."

The girl rolled her eyes at this.

"That just shows how thick you guys can get." the girl said, irritated.

"Jealous? Don't worry you'll always be my number one girl." the guy said as he flashed a charming smile.

The girl blushed.

"I should be."
