Friends, foes, and…. Perverted teachers?
I inwardly groaned as I stepped out of the car and stood in front of the large building standing in front of me. God I hate school… it's just another punishment sent from the pits of hell itself. I just like to think that the devil enjoys taunting me. I looked up at the dreaded building that had a huge sign over it saying
"Welcome to Konoha High."
I scoffed, it's like they enjoy taunting us kids and drawing us in by making those warming statements. Welcome? Yea right…. I know what school can really do to you…. It's a place that demons and ghouls run free and live to torment you. Trust me, I know from first-hand experience.
"Have a nice day at school Naruto!" I heard Iruka call out to me as he drove out of the parking lot and off of school grounds. I growled and cursed at Iruka, not really caring if he heard me or not at the moment. Usually I wouldn't dare say something, but it's his entire fault I have go through this hell of being the new kid!
I turned back to the school and sighed. Another long day… What I wouldn't give to be back in my bed sleeping…
Oh yeah, introductions. I'm Naruto Uzumaki. Yes, I know I'm named after those star-shaped-swirly things in Ramen, which, ironically, is my favorite food. But anyway... I'm 16 and I'm a sophomore in High school. I'm new to this particular area in Konoha, me and Iruka moved because he couldn't afford our last apartment. I was upset to leave my friend Haku, but we could still see each other from time to time. Yes I only have one friend. Everyone in my last school thought I was looser and they bullied me, picked on me, beat me. You know, the normal bully stuff. But I got used to it over time. Of course in the beginning I was spiteful and rebellious against them, but after a while I realized that it was just a waste of time and made them even more persistent.
I hate not being able to fight back. Don't get me wrong; I can beat the crap outta someone if I really wanted to, but… last time I fought back against this kid I almost ended up killing him. That was in 3rd grade, some people have forgotten about it by now, but others still fear me. People think that if they could end up beating me, they would end up looking cooler, but I think there all just air-headed wannabes. Oh well. But after that incident Iruka told me that I shouldn't do that, that it was wrong to solve my problems that way. Well the other ways don't seem to be working either. Hmph… If people start picking fights with me in this school then it's no more Mr. nice guy!
I cautiously opened the door and looked both ways. No body in sight… Good.
I tiptoed towards the large doors that said 'Main Office', since Iruka had told me to go there first so I could get a copy of my schedule.
And don't ask why I was trying to be stealthy and quiet; it's just a habit. After being beat on so much and having your head dunked in toilets between classes, you can never be too careful…
"Hello! Good evening!" A young woman greeted loudly. I ducked and covered my head with my arms, as if I was about to be attacked. There was an awkward silence and as soon as I realized that she wasn't going to hurt me, I shot up to a standing position again and smiled brightly at her, while completely ignoring her concerned expression.
I paused to take a good look at her. She had short dark hair and a warm smile on her face. She had on a white t-shirt that said 'I Heart Piggies!' on it. My lip twitched upward in amusement for a moment. I felt kind of awkward at how nice she was being.
"My name is Shizune! (Sp?) Is there something I can help you with?"
"Uuumm.. Yeah… I'm—"
I was suddenly interrupted by someone's loud voice yelling. I turned to the direction in which the noise came from to see another door. It said 'Principle's office' on the door.I snickered playfully. I wonder what got the principle so worked up…
"That doesn't give you the right to go beating up the other students! You almost killed one of them!! You're lucky I haven't expelled you yet! If I see you doing anything like this again then you are out of this school! You hear me?!" A very loud, but feminine voice yelled. At first I thought she might've been yelling at me, but then I noticed that the door was closed. There was another long silence and I exchanged a curious look with the woman at the desk.
I perked up when I saw the door opening to reveal a young man, about my age, but a lot taller than me. He had blood red hair and a calm, stoic expression plastered on his face.
"Don't just ignore me! Get back here!"
"Yeah, yeah…" The guy said tiredly while walking away from the office and slaming the door shut.
Probably just another trouble maker… Best to either make friends with him, or leave him the fuck alone…
The redhead guy walked closer and closer to me until he was right in front of me. He looked down at me with piercing green eyes that were rimmed with a lot of black eyeliner? At least I think that's eyeliner. Well either that or this guy hasn't slept since he freaking born! I also noticed that he was wearing a lot of black and had small skulls designed into the shirt. His hair looked really messy, like he didn't ever bother to comb it, but it looked really soft at the same time. I felt an urge to touch his hair but I refrained myself instantly, so instead I just smiled up at him.
He flinched a little and seemed surprised by my action, but then he scoffed in anger and pushed past me, bumping my shoulder with his.
Option: 'leave him the fuck alone' it is then…
"Uumm? Sir? I'm sorry about the interruption… what is it you needed help with?" Shizune, at least I think she said that was her name, asked politely.
"Y-yeah. Um. I'm new here see and I—"
"Oh yes! I remember hearing about you! You need your schedule right?"
I nodded, though I was slightly pissed that I couldn't get a full sentence out with out being interrupted.
"Okay well if you go through that hallway way right next to the principle's office, there should be a door that says 'Guidance counselor: Gai of youth'… he should be able to help you in getting your schedule. If you have any other question don't hesitate to ask!" Shizune chirped and then turned in her chair to peer into her computer, a serious expression on her face.
I rolled my eyes then shook my head impatiently. I turned and stalked off to where Shizune had pointed and walked down the small hall. There was a large painted picture at the very end of the hall. I stopped to look at it for a second. The person painted in the picture had spiky blonde hair, like mine but it was longer, and deep blue eyes, like mine only his showed a lot of kindness and full of wisdom. The man was smiling broadly, and was holding up a peace sign. I couldn't shake off the feeling that I knew him from somewhere… But I shrugged and looked around curiously. I finally spotted the door I was looking for on my left.
I slowly reached forward and reluctantly turned the door knob. I gulped nervously before pushing the door open silently…
(TBC??? Tell me If I should continue………)
