Yes, a whole 'nother story. It's Ouran this time though. Shnazy eh? I'll admit, I'm not the greatest with plots (this one is actually pretty unoriginal), but you all still love me right? Right? Now lets get this started,
Disclaimer: Oh how I wish. I don't own the Hosts of course, sad but true. But wait, the hostesses? They are mine. MY lovely little girls, not yours. As are some of the students and teachers. Wouldn't want to leave out the really little people now would we.
Yes I Hate You
Nice to meetcha, Have to beatcha
"What do you mean? We had no part in that!"
The room was quiet. Four girls stood or leaned against the walls, three stood in the middle. The one with the light purple hair, that was often mistaken for pink, shook her head and wrote something on the clipboard in her hands. The two who stood in front of her, whose arms were locked together, glared at her with such intensity that it would scare anyone who was unused to it.
The purple-haired girl shrugged and sent a smug look towards the two. "My sources have informed me that, while you two were not the cause, you did help."
The two girls stuck out their tongues simultaneously. "Nuh-huhhh!" They argued. Slurping the appendages back in they planted their free hand on their opposing hip. "Like we would help those idiots. They threw the pudding at us, we were defending our honor!" They nodded their heads, feeling as if this was justification.
"Mina-san(1)," The little brunette piped up from the corner. Her arms clutched a small brown and white spotted puppy to her chest. "I don't think Elli and Ray-chan(2) would do that." She said, coming to the two accused's defense.
The girl identified as Mina wrote something else on the clipboard. "Well, whether or not they did or didn't do it, I'm holding them responsible." The two girls whined, which Mina promptly ignored. Her duty was done, the two were punished and now she was off to converse with the headmaster. Somehow she had to bargain with him. It didn't help that his son was one of their rivals, that already had her favor with him severely wounded, but the fact that the two who had helped commit the crime resided in their club didn't help her chances either.
Because of the lunch incident they now had to sit in alphabetical order. This was fine and dandy, it kept some of the more rambunctious orderly, but because of their last names, many of them had to sit fairly close to their rivals. It would not do to have someone sit next to their rival counterpart. If Mina was correct this would be mostly avoided, only two of them sat next to their rival. The Princess and the twins.
The lady, Mina knew, would be fine. She was proper and had little trouble ignoring, or countering Tamaki's jabs. It was the twins that concerned her, and she had all the right to it. The twins, although constantly avoiding the two, had met up on several occasions with the Hitatchin brothers. Because both parties were known for both pranks and their stubbornness, the four rubbed each other the wrong way. On plenty of occasions there had been a tremendous fight in which the two would be grappling with their opposite. It always ended with a teacher pulling them apart, but consequences were never harsh for fear of angering the respected parties families.
Mina knew how this would all end if she let them sit opposite of their rivals. Lunch would never be peaceful again, and thus she'd never cease to have a headache. So, intent on sweet talking the headmaster, the girl excited the room and started down the hall. She knew every nook and cranny of the school, despite it belonging to her rival's father, and it didn't take her long to reach her destination.
Mina took the smooth glass handle in her hand and turned it gently. Opening the door she stepped inside, bringing an air of elegance in with her. Her feet took her to the door she knew the headmaster resided, and her hand reached out for the handle.
"Well, well," Her hand, just inches from the polished bronze, paused. The girl turned her head to meet the voice. The one boy she had hoped and prayed she wouldn't run into stood smiling smugly at her. His eyes, as always, were hidden behind the gleam of his glasses, and Mina couldn't read his intentions.
Kyouya lifted himself from his place on the wall and slid his hands into his pockets. "I would wait. He's with a client, some new student is planning on transferring."
Mina's hand fell to her side and she turned to face her opposite. "What a pleasant surprise," both knew the sarcasm behind that. "I suppose you yourself are on a mission to reverse what your friends did." She gave her own smile to the boy, her eyes revealing nothing. Just one of their similarities.
"You could say that." He answered, giving a short bow of the head. "I wouldn't place all the blame on my own members if I were you though."
"Oh no," she assured, "I have already placed those two under punishment. Don't be worried." She twirled her wrist in a mocking gesture. "Forgive me, but I didn't think the famed Shadow King would be worried about my priorities. Do you, in fact, worry about me as well? Feelings perhaps?"
She was teasing him now, Kyouya could see that very well. He hadn't anticipated that his counterpart would be so much like he himself. Girls at this school were not known to be devious.
"I'm sure the mighty King has this handled so I will be off." Mina cocked her head softly, the smirk still holding strong, and walked past him. Her hand patted his shoulder upon passing him and she excited to the hall.
Kyouya, watched her from the corner of his eye. She was a strange one, that was for sure. Perhaps it would be best if he just checked their whole club out. Their background might prove useful if blackmail were to be resorted to.
Did she want this to come to war? No. Was it her intention to fully piss off the Prince of the school? No. Had she honestly thought that he would have enough sense to not throw an all out fit of rage? As sad as she was to say it now, yes.
Kailie didn't want to think about how the Prince of the Host Club had acted. Sure, she was impulsive, but she did ask the headmaster. He had agreed, and she had wrangled up a bunch of different girls to suit their customers needs. Sure she had peeked into the third music room occasionally. She never stayed for more then a couple of minutes, but she had gotten a good look around. Kailie admitted to taking the Host's idea of the types, and in fact, taking the types as well.
But did it honestly matter what she did? It wasn't like it affected them. How many girls would come to a Hostess club? They weren't stealing any customers, and if Tamaki wasn't such an impulsive idiot maybe they could have worked together. But no. He had waged war, and now they were currently battling over who would gain custody over the ballroom for Halloween.
Kailie believed Mina's idea of a Masquerade to be superb, and if the group hadn't already disbanded she would have talked it over with them. It was a fun idea. If everyone wore masks, and she was sure this would happen, then think of the fun they could have! If everyone participated the dancing would be an absolute surprise. A surprise worth fighting for.
Oh, speak of the devil.
Mina stepped into the room. A lock of light hair fell into her eyes and was promptly pushed back. The girl eyed the staring princess as she walked past. Kailie blinked and gave a smile. She ran to catch up with the girl, and when she had she bounced up and down.
Mina's eyes widened curiously, and her eyebrows both raised slowly. "Is there something wrong Kailie?" she asked the princess.
Kailie nodded her head fiercely, paused, then shook with equal ferocity. "Mina," She started, tugging on the girl's sleeve to ensure she was being listened to. "I wanted to address the Halloween problem." Mina nodded and the anxious girl went on. "I would love to see the masquerade put into our plans. Do you think we could do that?"
Mina sighed and nodded. Having just come back from the main office her original plans hadn't been to run all the way back. Especially since Kyouya might get the thought that she was coming back to see him. That thought did not sit well in her mind. "Alright Kailie." She nodded her head softly and turned to walk right back out the door.
Kailie beamed and gave a small jump. "Oh thank you Mina!"
"Whatever." The girl retorted shutting the door behind her.
Kailie flopped back down in the large red stuffed chair. It would all be fine. Mina would get the ballroom and the Hosts would finally have something to chew over while they got all the fun. Kailie could imagine the look on Tamaki's face. But the princess couldn't think of just that at the moment. She had the rules to organize.
In the short time it had taken to group the girls together, several things had become known. One, Lacy was the only one of them that used honorifics(3). Two, Kailie's seemingly endless amount of energy ensured that no day would be slow. Three: Mina's hair was Not pink. Quit calling it that. Four: The twins were fraternal. You were to get over this and leave them be Five: Tony was an adventurer, she wore boys clothes. Get used to it. And Six: Elaina's studies in England did not make her British, no matter what she sounded like. These were the major guidelines that their club held. It mostly stood, and the group had come across only minor snags along the way.
Along with guidelines there were rules. One: Lacy's animals were not to be touched. Two: Kailie was not to be invited over. She was a princess and must act like royalty. Three: if you crossed Mina it would certainly mean a punishment that only those of a dark mind could come up with. Four: if the twins situation was ever made fun of you would be pranked until you fled the school. And then the two would be sure to make it known of your cowardice. Five: Tony was not a party girl and would not be referred to as so. This would unsure a severe beating. And Six: Elaina was popular and you would have to wait your turn with her. Any cutting would result in whatever Mina felt like.
Both guidelines and rules, the customers had learned to respect. In an even shorter period of time it became known that not only was there a Hostess Club, but they had rules. The girls of the school seemed slightly repulsed by this, and Tamaki once again took offence. It was a blow to his pride if the girls were guessing correctly, and they also supposed it was the final thing to make him snap. The war was started in only four days of the Hostesses existence.
Haruhi grumbled to herself as the twins peered over her shoulder. "Shouldn't you two be getting ready?" she asked in an attempt to make them go away.
The two just snickered and shook their heads. "Didn't you know Haruhi dear?" Hikaru asked.
Kaoru followed, "It's free day. Milord told us just to wing it."
They shrugged simultaneously, chiding at the same time. "It's probably 'cause of those troublesome girls."
Haruhi had no doubt that they were referring to the new club, but chose not to comment. The brothers went back to poking and prodding her. After several minutes the disguised girl grew fed up and slammed the book shut. "If you will," She started angrily, standing up and glaring at the two.
"I am pleased to announce that Mother has some information for us!" Tamaki burst through the double doors, interrupting Haruhi and sending all eyes to him.
Kyouya entered behind the energetic prince. Pushing his glasses up higher on the bridge of his nose, the black haired teenager walked over to a polished oak chair. He sat down and removed the laptop from the crook of his arm, placing it on the table gently. "It has come to my attention of what these girls are capable of. As I'm sure the Hitatchin's are quite aware of." The twins smiled sheepishly. "I've researched them and am proud to say I have gotten plenty of information. Since the twins seem to be the most problematic I shall start with them."
Kyouya cleared his throat and read the screen.
Ellie and Reiko Hiroshima
The fraternal twins of Orotish Hiroshima, owner of the restaurant chain Elegance. They were sent off to different private schools since they were young. Ellie studied medicine while Reiko studied literature.
"Hard to believe now." The twins interrupted. Kyouya continued.
They were reunited at the age of seven. Neither of them would leave the other and they were forced to attend an entirely different school. Many of the kids teased them because of their looks and that pushed them into solitude. Though apparently intelligent they instead devote themselves to pranks and teasing.
Kyouya paused as the sound of voices drifted from behind the doors. All eyes followed his and curiosity overtook them. Since it wasn't yet time for the girls to start arriving the members had no knowledge of who might have been behind the large bronze doors. This was soon changed though, for the voices grew louder and it was soon to the point of where the hosts could make out the words.
Kyouya smiled and gave a small chuckle. "Well, this is ironic." His right hand gently pushed down the screen of the laptop and he stood. "Why don't we greet our guests."
The group gave him curious stares as he started off towards the doors. Each followed though and each was placed in position. None of them welcomed the guests when they walked in though. Only surprised and curious stares greeted the three newcomers.
"Well come on." Mina escorted the two girls in. "You helped it, you apologize."
Ellie's white bangs were pushed behind her ears, but some of it still managed to hang in her face. Reiko's black hair hung down, fanning over her shoulders. Her bangs were to short to hide her eyes, but her waist-long hair did a fine job of covering half of her face.
The two didn't look happy to be there. But both bowed as soon as they stepped inside. "Forgive us." Reiko said pulling herself back up.
Ellie followed her sister. "We regret our actions and are sorry for what they have brought." She, being the more sympathetic of the two, seemed actually a bit remorseful compared to her sister who looked as if she had just eaten something rotten.
Kyouya was sure this was the twins punishment that Mina had talked about earlier, and was actually quite amused. He had thought the girl would make them clean toilets or something, but truly this was more punishment then cleaning would ever be. Apologizing to the enemy. A fine mind that girl had, even he, the shadow king, had to admit.
Their own pair of twins seemed more amused then he did though. They leered at the girls, breaking away from the group and stepping foreword. "We accept your apology." They chanted, each taking an arm of one of the girls. "But truly, we didn't know you cared so much."
Ellie ignored Kaoru's arm as it moved to circle her waist and clutch her to him. Reiko was having a harder time. She muttered something under her breath -most likely vulgar- and resisted giving Hikaru, whose hand was wrapped around her shoulders, a punch to gut.
Hunny didn't seem to notice the tension between the two. Usa in hand, he skipped up to jump into a spot before the four. "Hiya Elli-chan! Ray-chan!" He gave a cutesy smile and hugged Usa to him tighter. "Welcome to our club! Did you want to join in the fun too?"
Mina sighed and walked up to intervene. "Forgive me Haninzuka," She apologized. "But we have to go now." Tugging one of each of the girl's ears she pulled them away from their captors. "I hope you learned your lesson now." She scolded.
Each girl writhed in pain and shouted an anxious yes. The hosts were left to stare at the scene.
Tamaki smirked and threw his hands in the air. "Well now. It seems they are learning their place. I propose we hold a celebration!"
The twins each raised an opposite fist. "We agree!" They chimed in.
Hunny jumped onto Mori's shoulders and smiled. "We should invite the girls." He suggested.
This made the mood lessen, and was only helped by Kyouya's next statement. "I don't suppose our Prince has forgotten something?" Tamaki shook his head no. "The girls have just confirmed the ballroom for themselves." The happy mood came crashing down around them.
"Interesting," All eyes were averted to the door where the lone smirking girl leaned against the wall. "I came back to explain that the ballroom was ours, but it looks like I was beat to it." Mina pulled herself away and gave a short bow. "It's good to see that there is in fact, someone with a brain in this club after-all." Her smirk grew as she set her dark eyes on Tamaki. "Have a good day Tamaki-kohai(4)."
Mina gave another bow and walked out. Tamaki was left, mouth hanging open, in an utter state of confusion. This was turned to rage quite easily and soon he was standing and clenching a fist so tight it was white.
"Are you okay Milord?" The twins cocked their heads opposite ways.
"How dare she!" Tamaki shouted. "I know for a fact she's the same age as me!"
Hunny peeked over Mori's broad shoulder. "I though you knew Tama-chan." He gave a smile and leaned his head over "Mina-chan got to skip a grade. She's really smart, she helps me with my homework when I don't get it."
"Kyouya!" Tamaki, now fueled with even more rage, shot a finger towards the boy in question. "I have an idea for Halloween."
Kyouya pushed his glasses up higher on the bridge of his nose. "Well," he started, gather a nearby clipboard in hand. "I was wondering when we might begin this."
(1) san- word that means Mr, Miss, Mrs, and so on
(2) chan- word that expresses endearment, it gives a sense of childish cuteness. Normally used between girls
(3) honorifics are used to show respect, in English this would be like Ma'am, Sir, and so on
(4) kohai- a word normally used in a school setting, it means underclassmen
Welp, there it is. The mighty first chapter. Now all I need to keep me writing the next one, if for some reviews. Just tell me how I'm doing so I can correct and edit the next one to make it better. Till next time, oh and here's a tiny peek
Two and Two make Four- It wasn't hard to see that this was not a good position for her. Not only was her sister no where in sight, she herself was in the clutches of the enemy.
