Written by me (Rebecca) once again. Also, some spoilers involving Envy in FullMetal Alchemist. If you don't know who ends up dying in FMA, or the ending of the last episode, then I suggest you don't read this chapter unless you don't care. XD
Damn, Rebecca. Damn her to hell. Why the hell am I at her school pretending to be her, while she's off somewhere else.
I scowled and readjusted the fake purse on my shoulder.
Right now, I am standing in the sandwich line in North Building. I was wearing the same outfit Rebecca was wearing today. She happened to be wearing black boy shorts and a green t-shirt that said My imaginary friend thinks I have serious mental problems. It also has this crazed looking squirrel on it. I don't feel right with my hair up. It's not even my hair, it's Rebecca's. She put it up in a ponytail this morning and I had to do the same.
Sometimes, I really hate being the shapeshifter. I sighed. At least she wasn't wearing a fancy dress and heels. That would have been awkward to walk around in school.
I reached the front of the line and the lunch lady smiled at me, grabbing a new plate for my wrap.
"Hey, there," she said, thinking I was Rebecca.
"Hey," I said with a fake smile on my face. I really didn't want to be here right now.
"Plain, right?" I nodded. She quickly made the wrap with practiced ease. It was sad that Rebecca came here everyday and the lady knew her order by heart—turkey, American, lettuce, and ranch dressing on a plain wrap.
The lunch lady handed me the made wrap and I thanked her. I walked over to the cashier line and asked for a Rice Krispy treat. I paid the four dollars and shoved the unused dollar back in my pants. I don't even understand why she wanted me to buy lunch, mooching off people is so much easier. Besides, it's always fun to watch Frankie cry when I steal her pudding.
I scowled and stalked off towards the lunch table where Frankie, Becky, and Sarah were sitting.
Frankie looked up at me. "Hey, Rebec—Envy, what are you doing here looking like Rebecca?"
I dropped the plate on the table and sat on the red bench, straddling it.
"Hello to you, too, Frankie. Isn't it such a lovely day?" I said sarcastically.
"Oh, defiantly, it is!" Frankie exclaimed, clapping her fingertips together once in a happy manner.
I looked at the girl with a confused expression. "It's raining," I explained to her.
"I know," she said with a big goofy smile on her face. I groaned and facepalmed.
"Okay," Becky said. "If a rainy, dreary day with no sunshine is your good day, then what's your bad day?"
I knew we would regret ever asking as soon as those words left Becky's mouth. "Well…" Frankie started. "I love days that are cloudy and with a little wind and a little warm. I don't the days when it's all sunshine, sunshine. Like when I'm going to the country and all the clouds are gone and the lighting is all-suckish. That's bullcrap!! I wonder what's for dinner?" she said looking thoughtful. "Cloudy days always have great lighting, but those are days when zombies come out, but I'm making a Zombie Squad, but it's just me and my cousin. So, I need more people, but on a sunny day zombies don't come out because they don't want to get a sunburn because zombies can't afford sun screen. I kinda like days in between days because you never know what supernatural being will come!" She dropped a piece of pudding on her shirt. "What the #$*& I just bought this! Hehe…. But days when it's sunny and still kinda raining make me wanna hurt innocent bystanders."
We stared at her with our mouths hanging open. That was the most ridiculous explanation I have ever heard and she said that with a straight face, too!
"Uhh, Frankie," I said.
"Yes, dear, Envy?"
"Has anyone ever told you that you have mental problems?"
"Quite a few people in fact. How about you?"
"What about me?" I asked.
"Has anyone ever told you?"
"I don't understand."
"You have an imaginary friend that thinks you have serious mental problems."
My hands itched to take off this shirt, throw it in the trash and light it on fire. "God damn it! This is Rebecca's shirt. She just decided to put it on this morning!"
"It's appropriate for this conversation right now though," Becky said.
I rubbed my temples, trying to resist the urge to murder Rebecca's friends. "Has anyone ever tried to get you help?" I asked Frankie.
"Do I want to know what happened to that one person?" Becky asked.
"Oh, she's fine," Frankie explained. "She just had to go into therapy for about ohh two months, or was it a year?" She shrugged.
You're a danger to other people around you," I told her.
"So are you!" Frankie said. "Let's see, you killed *sniff* Hughes, you stabbed Ed though the chest, you kicked Ed in the face, almost ate him when you were a dragon—"
"When was I a dragon?" I asked, cutting her off.
"In the movie."
"I don't remember that."
"Well, at the end of the series you went though the gate and to get out of it, you changed into a giant yellow dragon," she explained. "At least, I think you were yellow," she mumbled to herself.
I thought about it for a moment. "Nope, still doesn't ring a bell."
The bell rang signaling the end of lunch. We got up and started walking back to our language classes.
"If it doesn't ring a bell, then why did a bell just ring?" Frankie asked.
I scowled and resisted the urge to ring my hands around her neck.
"Go run into a wall or something."
"No can do, Envy" she said, draping her arm over my shoulder. "You see, I have a speaking final in Spanish in a few minutes and if I miss that then I'll fail and they'll take Rewind away from me." She wrapped her arms protectively around her boobs. "Besides, I know you're just jealous."
"Jealous? Of what?" I asked.
"You're jealous for the fact that I have Rewind hiding in my bra and not yours!"
I froze outside the stairwell doors on the second floor in shock. "Wait, what are you…?" But she was already rounding the corner, skipping back to Spanish.
I walked back to the French room and sat down. How the hell did Rebecca end up with a friend like Frankie? It made no sense.
I sighed and laid my head in my hands. I just want to go home!
Envy: FullMetal Alchemist and if you don't know that by now that's sad.
Frankie, Becky, Sarah: My friends I sat with at lunch
Lunch lady: she seriously knows my wrap by heart…tis sad
North Building: H-F (my high school) has two buildings—North and South—separated by a path and North is where I always eat my lunch. North has three floors, the lunch room is on first and the language rooms are on second. The second floor gets class split in half during the lunch period with lunch being in the middle with a class sandwich around it. (weird analogy I say…and I just made it up XD)
Rewind (Reverse Rewind): Frankie made him up and because she has too many books in her backpack, Rewind must stay in her bra because her pocket is too cramped (she told this to me one day XD)
Frankie's bad day: she wrote that out for me, word for word. That is what goes on in her mind and any one time.
The shirt Envy is wearing: I love that shirt, its one of my favorites ^_^
Hughes (Meas Hughes): FullMetal Alchemist. That episode where he died was sooooo sad.
Note: Envy looked like me the entire story, but I guess it doesn't really matter how you picture him, cuz if you have no idea what I look like it would be pretty hard. XD
Review please! Next week, Death of a Ninja!
