This fanfic has been going on for awhile on a couple of forums, but I've finally decided to put it here. :P There's already many chapters finished, but to keep the suspense, I'll release one every Monday. (Excluding the 1st chapter of course. :P) Enjoy.
I walked into school with a proud smile on my face. Eleventh grade had just begun, and I knew it was going to go well. I had straight-As last year, all the teachers loved me, and I'd gotten a ton of girls' numbers. Yep, I had a feeling this year would be the same, only better. As soon as I stepped inside with my cool shades on, a million girls rushed up to me.
"Sup girls." I said. They all sighed with happiness. One of them ran up to me.
"Hey H.A….." She said sly fully.
"Hello beautiful." I said in a cool tone.
"Wake up!" She yelled in my ear. I jumped back started.
"What the hell!?" I yelled back. She walked up to me again, she slowly started to look like my mom for some reason.
"What up you lazy bum!" She yelled again. I was completely confused, but it all started to make sense.
I awoke in my bed, and shook my head. Just a dream, of course. My life couldn't be that perfect. As I got out of bed, I let out a loud yawn. Apparently today actually is the first day of Eleventh grade for me. I really didn't want to go in actuality. That dream was complete bull to me. I stumbled to the shower, stripped down, and jumped in. I had forgot to warm up the water in my sleepiness, and was greeted by freezing water. This caused me to fall over in surprise.
Soon enough, the water warmed up, and I could finally shower in peace. Of course, peace doesn't last very long in this household. I heard the door open, and someone began to brush their teeth.
"Hey Shawn…" I said quietly, knowing it was him. "Can't you see I'm in the shower?"
"Come on! It'll only take me a minute to brush my teeth!" He groaned. I rolled my eyes in the shower.
"Whatever." I said. Shawn really loved to pull tricks on me just because I was his brother. Sometimes he was awesome, but most of the time, say 99% of the time, he's a pain.
"O.K….I'm done." He said, and then turned the hot water in the sink on and left the bathroom. This caused the water in the shower to cool down and I was once again greeted by cold water.
"Damnit Shawn!" I yelled as I just shut the water in the shower off. I was finished anyway.
"H.A.! Watch your language." I heard my mother yell from down the hall. I growled angrily. Shawn always got the better of arguments or anything. If he did anything wrong, it was clearly my fault for no apparent reason.
"H.A.! Where are you? Breakfast is getting cold!" My mother yelled.
"I still need to get dressed!" I yelled back, wrapping a towel around myself. I was still dripping wet, so I tried to shake some of the water off my fur, which made it all puffed up.
"Great….just what I needed…" I sighed. I hated having to comb my fur down. I was a guy, and only girls should have to comb their fur. I just stared at myself in the mirror while doing so. I looked at my two tails in the mirror and sighed. It just felt so weird to be one of the only two-tailed foxes in the word. I felt like a freak. Even my dad thought I was a freak.
"H.A.! Come on!" My mother yelled again. Her voice had started to annoy me over the years. It wasn't getting any better I can tell you that.
"Still busy!" I yelled back. When will adults figure out that teens need more than six minutes to get ready?
"Well, the school bus is going to be here in a few minutes and you're still not ready!" She said. She got me on this one. I woke up late this morning, took a long shower, and to top it all off, I spent five minutes fixing my fur. Not a good way to rush in the morning.
"Alright, alright!" I said running to my room. While opening the drawers with one hand, the other was brushing my teeth at the same time. All I had time to throw on a was a white T-Shirt and khaki pants. There was absolutely no time to choose my clothes. I suddenly heard a honk outside.
"H.A.! That's the bus!" My mom yelled, once again.
"Crap….." I said out loud. No time for breakfast, I guess. As I sprinted out the door, I grabbed my red coat and threw it on. It was pretty chili for September. Thankfully, I caught the bus in time, and threw myself into a seat in the back, where I was greeted by my only two friends, Ian and Dwayne.
Dwayne and I had been friends since only last year. He was a orange hedgehog, and only moved here recently. Unlike most people, he didn't make fun of me because of my tails. In fact, he thought it was really cool, and would always hang out with me and Ian.
Ian and I had been friends for as long as I could remember. Grade school was the worst time ever for me. Everyone would call me a freak and make fun of me. Needless to say, I didn't have any friends, except for Ian. He would always be at my side. In fact, he looked a lot like me. Red fur, yelled tipped tail, and was virtually my height. The only major difference was the fact I had two tails, but he didn't care. Unlike Dwayne even, he didn't say anything about my tails. It was like he didn't even know they were there, but I liked that. It made me feel a little normal anyway.
"So….everyone…explain your summers!" I said looking at them. "We all know I did absolutely nothing."
"Of course….H.A. you lead a very boring life. I mean there's nothing special about you or anything." Dwayne said in a very sarcastic tone. I growled.
"Not very funny….I hate it when you just bring my tails into a conversation. It's virtually like making fun of me." I said rolling my eyes.
"Heh…my bad." He said with a weak smile. "Well….my summer was pretty cool….I got hooked up with a girl."
"No kidding?" Ian said with a curious glance.
"Yeah…too bad she doesn't go to Mobius High. She's home-schooled." Dwayne said with a sigh. "I only get to see her on weekends."
"So…what's her name?" I asked, really wanting to know.
"Trish. She can be very spunky at times as well. I like that about her." He started to laugh. "Oh! And she HATES the romantic type of stuff, which means she'll probably hate you H.A."
"You make that sound as if I want to meet her." I said stiffly.
"You don't?" Dwayne said with a bit of sadness. I chuckled.
"Of course I do. You think I wouldn't want to meet my friend's girl?" I said. "I'll come down some weekend to see her, unless you plan of bringing her to your house or something."
"Well, that is the plan." Dwayne said with a thumbs up. "Most likely this weekend, by the way."
"Alright, alright! My turn to tell a tale!" Ian said bumping in.
"O.K….what did you do this summer Ian?" I said with a smirk.
"Absolutely….nothing!" He said with the most enthusiasm possible. It made all three of us laugh hysterically. Before we could even tell, the bus had already arrived at school.
"That was quick. Oh! Guys, we gotta check each others schedules out, even though you're the little one in the group Ian." I scoffed.
"Shut up! I'm only one grade down from you guys." He scolded back at me.
We looked at each others schedules, seeing what classes we have together. Miraculously, Ian had a few classes with me, only second and fourth period, and Dwayne and I had the first 4 classes together, second period being study hall. We all we satisfied by the set-up. It could have been worse. We could have had no classes together at all.
"I'll see you guys inside." I said waving, as I walked to my locker. Then, I decided to give my schedule a closer look.
"Let's see. First period is chemistry. That sounds like fun. Messing with chemicals, creating awesome stuff. I'll like that." I wasn't paying attention to where I was going while reading. "Second period is study hall. I have that with Dwayne, so we can pal around." I was unknowing walking toward someone. "Third period is gym. God I hate gym….." Then, I bumped into the person. Their books went flying, and I found myself on the ground.
I shook my head. "My bad….I wasn't looking where I was going." Then, I stopped talking. I looked over at the person I had bumped into. It was a cute blue hedgehog girl with pink bangs. She had a red head band on her head, and sky blue eyes. My heart just pounded loudly, and I rushed over to help her pick up her books.
"I'm so sorry! Let me help you pick these up." I said nervously. She chuckled.
"It's alright…I wasn't looking where I was going either. "I'm Kari." She said holding out her hand.
"I'm H.A." I said shaking her hand, then handed her the books.
"That's an odd set of initials for a name." She said curiously.
"It's a long story. Trust me, you don't want to hear it." I said.
"Well….I'll see you later then." She said.
"Wait! Why do we compare schedules or something. It would be cool to know when to see you." I said, blushing a little.
"Aww…that's sweet of you. Sure, let's take a look." As we compared schedules, I noticed that hers was almost the same as Ian's.
"What grade are you in?" I asked.
"Oh! I'm a sophomore." She said. "What about you?"
"I'm a junior." I answered. "Only two more years in this place, then I'm done."
She giggled. "I assume you don't like it here."
"You got that right, for a couple of obvious reasons." I said, wishing I hadn't said that.
"Like what?" She asked curiously. I froze up. She hadn't noticed my two tails yet. What if she hated me? What if she called me a freak too? I couldn't like a girl I liked call me a freak, it would hurt too much. I sighed, and took a chance.
"Well…..look." I spun around quick, and she saw my two tails. Her eyes opened wide.
"Two tails?" She started to laugh. I frowned sadly. I knew she was gunna start making fun of me. To my surprise she said something else.
"Is that all? That's funny. How could something small like that make you hate this place?" She said. I felt happy when she called it a 'Small' thing.
"You're not gunna make fun of me, or call me names because of them? Everyone else does." I said looking down.
"Well, those people are wrong and are real big jerks." Kari said.
"Thank you! Someone on the same page as me." I said. That made Kari laugh.
"Well…shouldn't we be getting to our lockers?" She asked.
"Right." I said and we headed to our lockers. When I got to mine, I looked at her, and saw she was standing right next to me.
"Our lockers are right next to each other?" I asked. She nodded.
"Isn't that cool?" She said smiling. "Now we can really get to know each other."
"Uhh….yeah….th-that sounds cool." I stuttered. Wait, why am I stuttering? I can normally talk fine around girls, but her….I find myself stuttering.
"So, H.A…..I gotta ask…." She started.
"Don't tell me." I interrupted. "You wanna know more about my tails right?"
"Actually, no. I want to know what you think about my hair." She said.
"Your hair?" I said confused. "Why?"
"I just got it dyed yesterday. I know I like it, but I want to know what other people think."
I smiled. "I think it looks great, but…why should you care about other people's opinions, when you know yourself you like it?"
"That's some pretty good logic, H.A. Where do you get that from?" She asked. I blushed.
"No one actually…I kinda…make up a bunch of things that I follow."
"Like what else?" She asked.
"Of course, the number one thing on my 'List' is smoking, drinking, and so forth. I will NEVER do anything like that. Why should I waste time doing things that are just going to hurt me later on in life, you know?" I said.
"Wow….I've never heard someone your age say something like that." She giggled. "That's cute. It's very mature."
I blushed once again. "Well…uh…." The bell rang suddenly, thankfully. "Shoot! That's the bell. I'll see you next period!" I ran off to class. Kari laughed again.
"He's something else." She said walking to her next class.
There you have it; the first chapter. I wrote this one a long time ago, and I'm not completely satisfied with the language. You'll notice as each chapter goes on, my writing will get back. That's because I've been taking English 101 in college, and my professor is VERY strict with getting things done right. He's helped me break a lot of bad habits, and I'm happy to take a few Bs and Cs to become a better writer. :P
Read and review please! I would really appreciate it.
