Disclaimer: I do not in any way, shape, or form own South Park. Thank Trey Parker and Matt Stone for that :)
A/N: I know, I know love triangles are so clique, but it's my first story and I thought I'd try something easy first. Anyways, I'm adding all new characters like myself and my friends. And of course, keeping the great south park characters we already know and love. Enjoy!
Don't Stand So Close To Me
A shrill noise pierced the silence in the room.
Ariana groaned, turning over in bed. She glanced at the alarm clock and pulled the sheets over herself. It was her first day of school and she didn't want to be late, but she wasn't ready for 5th grade. And the whole concept of attending a public school gave her the heebie jeebies.
"Get up! You're gonna be late to school!" her sister yelled from the kitchen
"I'm going, I'm going!"
She pressed the stop button on her alarm clock reluctantly and trudged to her closet. She picked out a light green sweater, and slipped her shoes on. She ran out of her room grabbing a hair brush to comb her unruly brown hair. She snatched an apple from the kitchen table and ran out the door, her bag slung over her shoulder.
She strolled down the sidewalk dreading the day ahead of her, while troubling thoughts ran through her head. What if nobody liked her? What if she wasn't in class with Alicia? What if some bully takes her lunch money?
She stumbled back, returning from the depths of her thoughts. Because she hadn't been paying attention she had bumped into another being. He was wearing an orange jacket and a green hat.
"Sorry, uhm, I d-didn't see you there…" She nervously apologized, fixing her sweater.
"No, it's alright." He brushed himself off and continued chatting with his friends.
Her eyes slowly made their way up from her sleeve to the boy and froze.
He had a gentle face, and a winning smile. He was everything she had ever dreamed of in a boy. He was an angel. And she needed to know his name.
The bus pulled up and all the kids climbed aboard. Peeking over to the boy she had run into earlier, she noticed an empty seat. She approached him ,but another girl snatched the spot suddenly.
"Hi Rebecca, how was your summer" He said, dreamily.
"Good." She replied sweetly, twiddling her fingers.
"That's nice." He smiled softly.
"Well, it would have been nicer if you had been there." She bit her lip nervously.
She reached for his hand, Ariana turned red with anger. The perfect boy and the awkward new girl. It was just like the movies, but with every good movie comes a twist. This fidgety girl was quite obviously her twist.
"You could sit over here." a muffled voice interrupted her thoughts.
She turned to find a boy hidden beneath an orange parka. She longed to sit with the other boy, but seeing as there was no other option, she took the seat next to him.
"So, what's your name?" He asked.
"That's a pretty name."
Shocked at his reply, she just forced a fake smile and turned away. Her beloved was now stroking the other girl's hand, hatred burned inside of her. He stole a quick glance in her direction, and she looked away quickly.
Oh gosh, did he catch me looking? Act natural, Ariana.
"So, what's your name?" She asked the boy next to her, trying to seem natural.
He smiled nervously, unaware of what to do. It took him long enough to answer with a simple, "Kenny, Kenny McCormick."
"Cool, so, you know that kid?" She pointed towards the green hatted boy.
"Yeah, that's Kyle. He's one of my best friends, why?"
A devilish smile overtook her. She would do anything to have a perfect movie ending with Kyle. And if she had to step on a few toes to get it, that was okay. Her concious seemed to be lost because nothing inside of her was saying how wrong it was.
When the bus reached it final destination, the kids climbed out, reuniting with friends they hadn't seen over the summer and taking in the fact that they were now 5th graders. Ariana frantically searched for Kyle, to find him with his girlfriend, fingers entwined, and her plan looking better by the second.
"So, I'll see you later." Kenny said his awkward goodbye.
Acting completely on impulse, she threw her arms around Kenny, pulling him into a tight embrace. His expression displayed his confusion and suprise perfectly. Too shocked to return the action, he just stood there in her arms for a bit. She detatched herself finally to find him red in the face. And with a teasing smile glued onto her face she headed into the school.
