Hello. This is my first fanfic... I'll try to update when I can... soo yeah... This story takes place in 2010 and all of the characrters are around the same age. (16-20).
Disclaimer: I do not own any charactrers from Heart no Kuni no Alice.
I do however own Eleanor, Anita, Debbie and Veronica.
Summer camp, the place your parents send you so that you have a good time and they don't have to entertain you. Most people love going to camp. But I really didn't want to go to camp this year. I would have had the house practically to myself. My younger sister is going to overnight camp and my older sister is going away somewhere with her boyfriend otherwise known as my ex-boyfriend. I needed some time to get over the whole break-up thing. However my dad loved the idea of staying in the house alone so I was being sent away to overnight camp too.
That's how I ended up waiting to get on a bus to go to this camp called "Camp Wonderland." I happened to be the first one that arrived at the pickup area so when my dad left I sat down on a bench pulled out a book and started to read.
"Good morning," a voice said.
I looked up. A boy around my age was standing in front of me. He had red eyes covered by a pair of glasses and white hair. The weirdest thing about this boy was that he had white rabbit ears on top of his head.
"Hi," I replied looking back down at my book.
"You're Alice aren't you?" the boy asked.
"How do you know my name?" I asked him looking back up at him.
"Because this moron I know has a sister who is in charge of your bunk. He was talking about it because you are the only new kid coming into our age group at camp this year." the boy explained.
"Huh," I said looking back down at my book.
"Well anyway, my name is Peter White," he said.
I nodded, but otherwise didn't say anything, hoping to discourage him from further conversation. Peter however had other plans. He sat down on the bench besides me. I tried to ignore him but I could see him moving out of the corner of my eye
He was looking for something in his backpack. It took him a few minutes but he found whatever it was he was looking for. I turned to look at him. He was opening a plastic water bottle. He caught me looking at him.
"What?" he asked. "Is something wrong Alice?"
"No," I said looking back at my book.
I was able to read in peace for a few minutes but then I began to get thirsty. I hadn't packed a water bottle that had water in it. My dad was eager to get me out of the house this morning so I hadn't had time to fill the water bottle in my bag up.
"Um, Peter?" I said hesitantly.
"Yes?" he said turning to face me.
"You don't happen to have a spare water bottle do you?" I asked.
"I do actually. Do you want it?" he replied holding up another water bottle.
"Yes, thank you." I said taking the bottle from him.
I opened up the bottle and took a sip from it. The water was cool and tasted sweet. It was really refreshing, especially in the mid-morning heat.
Peter was looking at me. His expression was blank but his eyes looked victorious in some way, as though he had won a bet.
"Well this is going to be a great summer," Peter said happily smiling at me.
Just then a car drove up and two boys jumped out of the car. They were twins, or so I think but they did look exactly the same. They both had black hair and were the same height. The only differences were their hairstyles and the color of their clothing. One of them was wearing blue and had long hair that was pulled into a ponytail. The other one was wearing red and had shorter hair than his brother with two bobby pins in the front. They got their bags and the car drove away.
"This year is going to totally rock brother," the blue one said.
"I hear that we get more privileges since we are the oldest kids in the camp brother," the red one replied happily.
They rolled their bags over to where Peter and I had placed ours and walked over to us. Now that they were closer I could tell that the one in blue had blue eyes and the one in red had red eyes.
"Hey Peter," they said in unison.
"Hello Dee, Hello Dum," Peter said sounding slightly annoyed.
"Who are you?" The blue one asked me. The red one looked at me now too.
"I'm Alice," I said.
"Oh, cool. Your that new kid that newbie hare was telling us about aren't you? Well I'm Dum and this is Dee." the red one- Dum said pointing to himself and to his brother.
"What are you reading?" Dee asked.
"Oh a book for school," I replied.
"Um, Alice isn't school over for the year?" Dum asked confused.
"Well yes but I have summer reading homework," I replied.
They both looked surprised. "People actually do their homework?" Dee asked.
"Of course people do. Just because you don't doesn't mean everyone doesn't." Peter said sounding annoyed.
Fortunately about five cars drove up just then. The person in the first car was a girl with glasses and red hair down to her shoulders. A boy got out of the second car. He had strawberry blond hair and was really tall. He like Peter had rabbit ears, however his ears were brown. Two people got out of the third car. A boy with brown hair got out followed by a girl with blonde curly hair and glasses. A boy with long blue hair got out of the fourth car. He didn't look very happy to be here either. Two people came out of the fifth car. A boy with spiky black hair got out on one side and he pulled on a hat. The other person who got out of the fifth car was a girl with curly purple hair. She also pulled on a hat.
When they had all gotten their stuff out of the cars, they drove away. When all seven of them had put their bags down they walked over to where the bench was.
"All right, we have an announcement to make," said the girl with purple hair.
"And we care because?" The boy with the hat asked.
"Because we think that this is important," the girl replied.
"Just let Vivaldi talk Blood," the red haired girl said.
"Well unfortunately a majority of the girls in our bunk have come down with mono at a party they were all at." Vivaldi said.
"Oh that's terrible!" The blonde girl said. "How many people are going to be in our bunk now?"
"About five of you," Vivaldi replied. "This makes it much easier for us to get you all to do what we want you to do."
"Hey are you Alice?" the blond haired man with rabbit ears asked me.
"Yes," I replied a little annoyed at the fact that they all knew who I was.
"I'm Elliot March." he said smiling. Now that he wasn't so far away I could see that his eyes were a purple color.
"Hi! I'm Eleanor, but please call me Ellie," said the blonde girl, who had blue eyes.
"I'm Anita," said the red haired girl who had hazel eyes.
"Julius," said the blue haired boy, who had blue eyes.
"I'm Ace," said the boy with brown hair. He had red eyes like Peter and Dum did.
"We are Vivaldi," said the girl with purple hair.
"I'm Blood," said the boy in the hat. Now that he was closer I could see an uncanny resemblance between him and my ex-boyfriend. They had the same hair style, the same posture and even the same colored eyes.
I realized I had to say something so I said, "It's nice to meet you all."
Then a boy with mouse or bear ears ran right past everyone else and dived to hide behind the bench. I turned to look at him. He had red orangey hair with a yellow streak on one side. His hair was covering his left eye, but his right eye was green. He was wearing a hat over one of his ears. Then I looked up and saw he had a tail too. That must mean he is wearing mouse ears, bears don't have tails.
When I realized that he was looking at me too I turned away. However there was a boy in front of me, wearing cat ears. He was dressed like a punk, with chains and everything. He was also wearing pink, his hair was pink and his ears were pink. He had a tail like the boy wearing the mouse ears that was also pink. Like the mouse boy some of his hair was covering one of his eyes, in his case his right eye. The eye I could see was yellow and had a triangle under it.
The cat boy spoke, "Hey have any of you seen a mouse?"
I heard a whimper behind me.
"Hey Boris did you ever watch that TV show I told you about?" Ellie asked.
"No, it looked boring," the cat boy- Boris said.
"Well you should have! It totally describes your relationship with Pierce!" Ellie replied.
"Ellie, what show is it?" Anita asked.
"Tom and Jerry," Ellie replied.
Anita rolled her eyes, "Thought so. Anyway Boris it's kind of early to chase mice and you haven't even met Alice yet," she said.
"Fine, I'll wait until we get to camp. They said that they were giving us fish for lunch anyway." Boris said.
The boy with mouse ears came out from behind the bench and turned to me saying, "Hi I'm Pierce- chu."
Boris knocked Pierce over and took his place in front of me saying, "Hey I'm Boris."
"Um, hi," I said. These guys were freaking me out. Is it normal for these guys to act this way or something?
Two more cars drove up then. Two girls got out of the first one. One of them had really dark brown hair and was short but the other one had hair so blonde it was almost white and was extremely tall.
"This is why I will never carpool with you again Boris! Now you and Pierce get over here and get your stuff out of the car. Or were you just going to go to camp without it?" the short one said angrily.
"Debbie calm down," said the tall one.
Pierce ran over to the car while Boris followed behind at a slower pace.
Two boys got out of the second car. They were another pair of twins. They had the same red hair, and they both wore an eye patch on one eye.
"Well that's everybody, now all we need is for the bus to arrive," Vivaldi said.
"This is seriously everybody?" Debbie asked incredulously.
"Yes, we told everybody earlier and we are not in the mood to tell it again," Vivaldi said.
"In short, everybody except for us got mono," Ellie said.
"Wait a minute. Is this everybody in the camp?" I asked confused.
"Of course not!" said Debbie. "If that were the case the camp would have gone out of business and none of us would be here. However the camp has been losing campers over the past few years."
"All of the other campers have a different pick-up spot than we do. We are the oldest kids in camp so we get certain privileges that the other campers don't get." Anita explained.
"But a separate pick up spot? Isn't that confusing?" I asked.
"Well if you want to watch a children's movie than by all means you can leave," Blood said.
"Stupid boy, that isn't the only reason why not having to ride to camp with the younger kids, is nice," Debbie said.
"Debbie we should say hello," the tall one said.
"Oh right, sorry. Hi I'm Debbie," said Debbie. "But you probably already knew that."
"I'm Veronica," said the tall girl.
"We are both called Joker but you can call me White and him Black," said one of the red haired boys with a kind smile.
"Yeah, Hi, whatever, where the h*** is that f******* bus?" said the other red headed boy- Black with a scowl.
"Why are you two here? Didn't you two already outgrow this place last year?" said Peter.
"Maybe they were held back like they were in school," said Dee.
"Maybe, or they might be…" Dum started but then he faded off.
"'Might be…?'" said Elliot obviously wanting them to continue.
"I'm getting to that newbie hare. They might be the people in charge of our bunk this year." Dum finished looking scared.
All of the boys, except for Julius who didn't seem to care and Ace who was just smiling, had looks of horror on their faces.
"Well we are going to have fun this summer aren't we?" White said with a grin.
"Wait a second. If you are our counselors this year than does that mean Gowland is the music teacher?" Ellie asked her eyes widening.
"Yes, we have been told that Gowland is indeed the music teacher," Vivaldi said.
"I may die," Boris said.
"Riiiiight," Debbie said sarcastically.
"No really. Last time Gowland played a song while I was there, all of the windows cracked," Boris said.
"Well good thing I remembered to pack my guitar," said Ellie.
Before anyone could say whether that was a good or a bad thing the bus pulled up. Everybody began to put their stuff on the bus. I put the book back in my backpack for the bus and followed everybody else. After I managed to shove my suitcase into the back of the bus and I went around to where the door was. Peter happened to be standing in front of me.
"Hey Peter?" I asked.
"Yes Alice?" he said turning around with a huge smile on his face.
"How long is the bus ride to camp?" I asked him.
"About 3 and a half hour trip, including the rest stop. But it also depends on traffic," Peter said with a shrug.
"That's a long time," I said absently.
"It sure is. Hey Alice I have a great idea! You should sit next to me on the bus!" Peter said.
"Um, no thanks Peter," I said boarding the bus and picking a seat close to the front.
Within minutes everyone was on board and the bus began to move. I heard someone behind me say "Hooray!" Judging by the replies of the others, they all agreed. I however did not. This was going to be a very long summer.
Okay so the story starts before she gets to camp. The reason for this is that I always thought that overnight camp began when your parents dropped you off at the place where the bus came to pick you up...
