Your Typical New Kid

Prologue: Emi

"Get away from me." Emi said darkly. "I will hurt you." The men ganging up on her sneered. "A little girl, trapped in a corner. What're you going to do, huh, kid?" She stared at them coolly. "Well, I warned you. I am not responsible for any actions that I may perform and everything that happens to you is the consequence of your own actions." She glared at them for a while. A big dome of ice materialized around them. "Hey! What the hell?"

A dark figure crouched down, ready to jump in to help when a dome of ice appeared around the bandits who were trying to kidnap the girl. The figure chuckled. "An Elemental, huh? Taiki-kun will have a partner, then…"

Emi smirked as she walked to the nearest Police Station. "Sir," She said in her cutest voice, catching the attention of the policeman at the front desk. "Yes, dear, what can I do for you?" The policeman smiled. "Five men tried to kidnap me." She said calmly. The policeman's eyes went wide. "They're in the nearest alley from here." She said as she walked out of the building, leaving the policeman blinking in shock.

As Emi walked quietly into her house, she heard voices. She snuck towards the living room and saw a young man with blond hair and purple eyes talking to her parents. She narrowed her eyes and stepped out of the darkness. "Who are you?" She asked softly and dangerously. The man blinked and looked at her.

"Honey, that's not how you treat guests," Her mother scolded. "Sorry, Mr. Narumi, she does this when strangers come into the house. She's very protective of us." Her father said apologetically. Narumi shook his head. "It's alright. You must be Emi-chan, am I right?" Emi narrowed her eyes at him but gave a single nod.

"Alright, Emi-chan, listen. I know you have powers, powers that none of the other kids have. Am I right?" Emi raised an eyebrow suspiciously, but nodded all the same. "That is called an Alice. The Alice Academy is a place where people with Alices learn how to use them. Don't worry about normal subjects; you'll learn about those, too." Emi raised both eyebrows skeptically. "But unfortunately, you'll have to leave home," Her father said quietly. "WHAT?" She growled, whipping her head around to face him. "You'll have to leave home and stay at school until graduation." Her mother continued sadly.

"But – but – how are you going to manage, Mom? You can barely walk!" Her mother smiled ruefully. "It doesn't matter, dear. I have a wheelchair, don't I?" Emi turned to her father worriedly. "Dad, are you sure you can make it through law school? I know it's tough, and you won't have a lot of time to take care of mom."

Her father shook his head. "It's alright, dear, we can manage. This is better for us all. After so many years of your pampering, we've grown dependent on you. We need to break the habit. And you need to learn how to use this Alice of yours. But this is your own choice, Emi. Do you want to go?"

Emi sighed. "If you're sure you can handle yourselves, then alright. I'll go." She glared at Narumi. "But if my parents get hurt while I'm in school, someone will pay very dearly." Narumi sweatdropped. "Don't worry, nothing will happen to them. So just go pack your bags. We'll be leaving whenever you're done. You'll be in uniform most of the time, so you won't be needing that many articles of clothing." Emi nodded curtly. "Fine."

Then she walked gracefully upstairs and carefully folded and packed her favorite clothes into a small backpack. "Okay, I'm ready, Mr. Narumi." Emi said, descending. "Oh, and Emi-chan, we're going to Japan. Do you know any Japanese?" She shook her head. "I'm Malaysian. I can manage simple pleasantries, but other than that…" Narumi smiled.

"No problem! Just wear this bracelet, and you'll be able to speak Japanese fluently." Emi nodded, never once smiling as she clamped the silvery-blue bracelet onto her wrist. "Bye mom, bye dad," She whispered as she hugged her parents. "Take care," They nodded and smiled at her.

"Alright, let's go. Classes begin in an hour!" He tapped his left earring and a girl teleported out of nowhere. "Ohayo gozaimasu, Narumi-sensei." She said, bowing. "Ohayo, Rika-chan. Emi-chan, this is Ginto Rika-chan. She's got a Teleportation Alice." Emi bowed to her, saying, "Hajimemashite, Ginto-san." Rika nodded and, with a slight flash, they disappeared.

Well. That's interesting. Who's Taiki? And why does Emi have such control over her Alice? Find out next time on Your Typical New Kid!
