Enjoy the first chapter of 'Reversed World'!
The only sound were her footsteps, reverberating when they hit the street. If you looked close enough, you could see something moving in the shadows...
The clock hit three making the sound of her footsteps inaudible. The streets were abandoned at night. If you'd paid attention, you'd see there was not a single light on in any of the houses. The curtains were closed everywhere, or wooden boards were nailed to the frames of the windows.
She moved as fast as she could, her heart hammering in her chest. She heard footsteps behind her, but she knew that if she looked over her shoulder now, that it would be the end for her.
Her eyes caught a glimpse of an alley. Without having any second thoughts, she hurried to the alleyway, leaning her back against the stone wall. She laid her hand on her chest, on the spot where her heart was.
Trying to catch her breath, she let herself glide down the wall, on to the cold stones; a window frame was next to her. She narrowed her eyes for a second, finding it weird that there were no closed curtains or bricks hammered against the window frame. But then she just shrugged it off, not wanting to think about it.
She let out a sigh of relief and closed her eyes; a small smile on her lips. The sound of footsteps of the person following her were gone. And it was quiet.
Her eyes snapped wide open when she realized something. It was too quiet. It was like the silence before the storm...
Suddenly, she was surrounded by shards of shattered glass. She let out a high pitched scream, crawling to the other side of the alley in an attempt of escape.
She was leaning against the other wall when she froze. There was a sound of footsteps crunching across broken glass, coming closer. Her eyes, which she'd closed during the 'escape' slowly opened; revealing big, golden orbs filled with fear.
A tall man, who had thrown his body through the glass window, stepped out of the shadows. An evil smirk plastered on his face, wearing pitch black clothes and holding a knife in his right hand. She felt a shiver running down her spine. She tried to move her body, but every attempt was invain. Her body was frozen by fear...
Someone walked on the streets of the dark town. He was looking at the ground, hands stuffed in his pockets. He was wearing a black vest with a white, sleeveless shirt underneath it. His jacket was zipped open to across his chest, showing a part of his well toned chest and a necklace with a cross at the end of it.
He looked up, revealing his midnight blue eyes, when he heard a scream. He figured it was coming from somewhere in the other direction. He looked from the direction he was supposed to go, to the other way and let out an annoyed sigh.
Pulling his hands out of his pockets he ran in a dash towards where her heard the scream coming from, his dark blue hair shuffling in the wind.
He stopped when he saw them. The back of a man and a girl with shoulder length, pink hair. She wore a short black dress with a second pink layer underneath it. The girl was pressing her back against the wall behind her, terror showing in her eyes...
She swallowed, feeling sick. She wished she'd never leave her at home. Now she was defenseless. She was nothing without her.. Just an average girl...
The man laughed an evil laugh and held his knife up, causing her to whimper softly.
"Now you're going to die..."
The man took a step forward, holding up the knife. He moved his hand in her direction, fast. She closed her eyes, burying her face in her hands as she let out another scream.
She was expecting to feel enormous pain, but it never came. Instead, she could hear a low whimper and then a thud. She slowly opened her eyes, taking her hands away from her face. The man that was attacking her was lying on the ground. Dead. A boy with dark blue hair and midnight blue eyes was standing beside the lifeless body, looking down at it.
She looked at him, startled, when he suddenly looked in her direction. She wanted to look the other way, get out of there, but he held her gaze as he walked to her.
"What were you thinking? This is no place for a kid to be, definitely at this time of night," the guy said to her.
"I'm not a kid!" the pink headed girl said with a growl.
"You do know this place is dangerous, don't you? There are a lot of dangerous people here that are working for 'Easter' the company who took over this town. Are you lost or something?" The blue headed guy said, ignoring her comment.
"It's none of you business," she spat at him as she folded her arms before her chest. Silence followed...
Her eyes went big in surprise as he suddenly reached out his hand. Hesitantly, she moved her hand to his. He impatiently grabbed her wrist and pulled her to her feet. Only he pulled a little too hard, causing the pink headed girl to stumble forward.
She closed her eyes, waiting to hit the hard ground, but instead her head hit something soft. She understood why when she slowly opened her eyes; her head was against his chest, his arms firmly wrapped around her shoulders.
He smirked. "Not that I mind having you in my arms, but..." He said with a low, husky voice.
Her eyes widened and she quickly took a step back. A red blush spread across her face as she softly mumbled an excuse.
'Stupid me... Staying close to his chest like that..' She thought as she looked at her feet.
When she heard footsteps she looked up, seeing him walk away, his hands stuffed in his pockets.
He turned around and gave her a questionable look.
"What's your name?" She asked him.
He smiled a small smile before turning around again. "Tsukiyomi..." He said with his deep voice.
And then he vanished...
"Why didn't he tell me his first name?!" she said angrily. "That jerk. Who does he think he is anyway..." She stuffed her nose into the air and humphed before walking home.
Then something hit her. She hadn't seen him use any weapons or something like that. Had he hidden it before she opened her eyes? For a second she thought of returning to the alleyway, to see what kind of wounds her 'attacker' had.
"No, that's stupid," she said to herself as she walked further to her home.
"I'm home!" the pink headed girl said as she walked inside her apartment.
A little guardian chara came out of a room and flew towards her.
"Amu-chan!" The guardian chara said with a smile. The smile made place for a worried look when she saw how she looked, though.
"What happened Amu?"
She raised her eyebrows and then looked down, at her body. She gasped at what she saw; her dress was ripped in several places and her body was covered in scratches, probably because of the broken glass that had been surrounding her a while ago.
"Eh... it's nothing... don't worry about it," she said quickly as she gave her a reassuring smile.
Only her guardian chara didn't buy it and narrowed her eyes. "Tell me what happened, Amu.."
She smiled nervously as she looked at her guardian chara. Her guardian chara looked like a mini version of her, but then she had black cat ears and a black tail. She wore a tight, black tanktop that showed off a part of her stomach and a very short, black skirt. Further more, she wore black stockings and black, high heels boots.
She sighed. "Fine I'll tell you, but let's go to my room first." Her guardian chara nodded and they went to her room.
Her room was
painted pink, a soft pink carpet covering the whole ground.
She was now eighteen years old and she'd been living on her own just recently.
She had no choice... since her whole family was dead... the company.
Wait, why was she thinking about this?!
She shook her head, trying to get rid of the thought. She let herself fall onto her king size bed and hugged her pillow tightly as she stared outside her glass door, which led to a balcony.
"Amu-chan? Are you going to tell me now?" Her guardian chara said.
Amu sat up and smiled a small smile. "Sure."
Then she told her guardian chara everything...
"Wow.." Said her guardian chara dumbfounded. Then she frowned.
"I knew I shouldn't have let you go alone! Especially at night!"
Amu gave her an annoyed look. "I'm fine, don't worry so much..."
"But Amu, you could be dead right now! If you character transform with me, then you'll be safe!"
"I was rescued ok? Just drop it.." And with that she walked to the glass door, opening it and walking on to her balcony.
Her guardian chara sighed and went to get something to eat.
Amu leaned on her elbows on a small wall at the edge of the balcony - to prevent her from falling off - as she sighed.
Her eyes widened when she suddenly looked into a pair of midnight blue eyes.
"T-Tsukiyomi!" Amu stuttered after she let out a shriek.
He was hanging upside down, on a branch off the three that was standing right in front of her balcony, a playful smirk across his face.
A blush appeared on her face when she noticed how close their faces were...
"What the hell Tsukiyomi! Did you climb up that tree just to scare me to death?!" Amu yelled at him as she took a step back. Only she stumbled over something and fell backwards.
Tsykiyomi was before her in a flash, wrapping his arms around her waist and pulling her against his chest.
Amu blushed furiously as she looked up at him.
"You really fall a lot, don't you?" He said with a chuckle.
"That's not true, you jerk! And a while ago was your fault! You pulled me up too roughly!"
"But don't you like me being... rough...?" He said huskily, pushing her against the glass door, pinning her hands at each side of her head and roughly pushing his body against hers.
She blushed a hundred shades of red before she gave him a death glare.
"What the hell are you doing?! You're crazy, you know that?! And why are you here anyway?! Did you follow me or something?! That's very rude! You're a stalker! You-"
She was silenced by him pressing his lips against hers. After a moment he pulled away and smirked while licking his lips.
"Hmm.. Tastes like strawberries.."
Amu gasped before covering her mouth. What the hell?!
He burst out in laughter. He put his hand before his mouth, trying to stop.
"What's so damn funny?!" Amu yelled angrily.
"Y-You should see you face! It's so funny!" he said between laughing.
She frowned as she folded her arms. "You didn't answer my question. Why are you here?"
He finally managed to stop laughing and smiled at her. "I wanted to know where you live and to make sure you were safe. And besides... I forgot to ask you your name..."
Amu raised her eyebrows before frowning again. "I can protect myself, thank you. And my name is Hinamori Amu.."
"Yeah right, you were almost killed... and alright Amu..." He said emphasizing her name.
Amu blushed as she gave him another glare. "Don't emphasize my name!"
"Sorry, but it's too much fun... bye... Amu..." And he vanished again.
"Damn it! I forgot to ask him his first name.." She said to herself. Then she shrugged and walked inside to get some sleep. Tomorrow would be a big day...
If you want to know what she meant by that then you have to wait for the next chapter, lol xD
Well that was the first chapter! I hope you all liked it!
Things you maybe don't understand: The man attacking Amu wasn't just some villain. But don't worry, everything will become clear in later chapters. Further more, the summary says she works for Easter, which has taken over town in this story. She really does, but she's has two identities and she hides her 'evil' one. I know it's kind of weird that she's weak and afraid of a villain when she's one herself, but that all becomes clear in later chapters.
Please review! =) That way I'll update the story sooner. =)
