Hey! I know what you all are thinking: she's back with another fan fic! Well, heck yeah I am! I was just inspired to write some more! I have a book of stories to create anyways just like I have a book of songs I make up. So, I decided, what the heck? I might as well. So….. here's my newest story to Fanfiction! I hope you like it! :D
DISCLAIMER: I do NOT own Gakuen Alice! It and its characters belong to the incredible Tachibana Higuchi! You know I'd never be able to come up with something as good as that would you? Of course not! :D
Two Doors Down
"Natsume! Are all you're bags ready?" I heard my mom call up to me.
Currently, I was standing in my room, my suitcase by the door. I messed up my already messy raven black hair as my crimson eyes scanned my deserted room. I sighed. I was going to miss this place.
"Yeah" I replied. Hesitantly, I grabbed my suitcase and headed out the door and down the stairs.
Mom ushered me into the car once I got down the stairs. My dad and sister, Misaki, were already in the car. I put my suitcase in the trunk and got in on the passenger side in the back. The car slowly pulled out of the driveway of my old home, starting the 'adventure' of being the 'new kids' as my parents had put it. In fact, I never wanted to leave. Oh well, life sucks. That's the way it is.
I guess you're wondering who I am. I'm Natsume Hyuuga. I have raven black hair and crimson red eyes. I usually keep my face looking like an emotionless void. I don't like to show emotion. It's a sign of weakness. I'm also what people would call a 'god'. I have god like features that makes every girl who looks at me fall in love with me. In fact, I think that I'm the hottest guy here in Japan. And I know that that fact is true. I know what you're thinking. You think I'm 'conceited' or 'arrogant'. But you're wrong. I'm just fully aware of what god has given me. And god has given me the 'looks'. So there you have it.
My dad's name is Ioran and my mother is Kaoru. My dad has silver hair and black eyes while my mom has raven black hair and crimson eyes like mine. My sister Misaki doesn't have any of our traits. Okay, maybe she has my moms face and my dad's smile, but her eye and hair color is way off. Her hair is a dark pink and so are her eyes. Misaki is 15 years old. You can't say that we are close, but you couldn't say that we never talk either. We have kind of a normal brother-sister relationship.
And the scenario you have witnessed earlier is the process of my family moving to Tokyo, Japan. My dad had a huge business promotion and he couldn't say no. Now, we have to move so that dad can do his work without being separated from the family for a long time. But the thing is I didn't want to move. I wanted to stay here in my home town, Osaka. I wanted to stay here. I wanted to stay here with my friends and the familiar faces that I have come to know…even though I don't talk to many of them. But I'm sure you get my point.
I sighed as I looked out of the window, watching the scenery pass by me. Why did I have to go? Haven't I suffered enough by having billions of fan girls chase me all the time? Apparently not.
"Oh, come on Natsume!" My mom said, trying to lift my spirits. Like that's ever gonna happen. "You never know, Tokyo might be fun!"
"Yeah" Misaki piped up. "It's a pretty big city so we can all go sightseeing and all that stuff! It'll be fun! Like a new adventure!"
"Whatever" I replied nonchalantly, still looking out the window.
"Cheer up sport" my dad said. "You know what? I heard that your friend Ruka Nogi is living in Tokyo right now. I heard he's going to a school called Gakuen Alice. And you're going there too you know?"
At that moment, I felt my mood lighten up just a bit even though I didn't let the emotion on my face. My childhood friend, Ruka Nogi, was going to be there. He had moved away about three years back. We still talk over the phone and IM and stuff, but it's not really awesome to have a friend you can't really hang out with every day. Maybe moving won't be so bad.
"Okay" I replied coolly, still being emotionless as ever.
I didn't really want anyone to see me give off emotion. Only Ruka had seen me smile and laugh before. He was my best friend so I knew I could trust him with anything. Now don't get me wrong, I also show emotions to my family sometimes. It's just that when you have a best friend who carries around a bunny who he had oh-so cleverly named 'bunny' and always had this 'prince' like attitude, or whatever the girls call it, wouldn't you laugh? Plus, he gets me. He knows how I think. So….yeah. He's my best friend. Got a problem with it?
Dad sighed and shook his head as he continued to drive. I was annoying him now? Fine by me. I continued to stare out the window, letting the minutes turn into hours that dragged by.
It was late afternoon when we pulled up into a house driveway. It was about…. 4 something. And by the looks of it, the house is ours for the taking. A moving truck was parked by the curb of the house and the front door was open and moving men were moving our things into the house.
"This is it" my dad sighed after he turned the car off. He turned around to see my sister and I. "So, what do you think?"
"Wow, it's pretty cool dad" Misaki said. "How'd you find the place?"
"It's a secret" my father dramatically answered, raising a finger to his lips. "What about you Natsume" he said, turning his attention to me.
"It's fine" I answered bluntly.
I guess I was kind of under exaggerating. The house looked awesome! It was white and had a blue roof with some blue railings. It was a Victorian style house with two floors. It had a porch with steps leading up to it and on the second story, I could see a circular window perched so that whoever was up there, could see exactly what was going on in the street. It had a big Sakura tree in the front, perfect for climbing. And since it was spring time, it was in full bloom.
Sighing and shaking his head, my dad got out of the car and went to the trunk. The rest of my family, including me, did the same. We all got our suitcases and started for the house. We walked up the pathway which was littered with Sakura petals to the front porch, also with Sakura petals all over it. I liked the way the house looked with the Sakura petals and their tree. It made everything look better.
When we got inside, I immediately saw the living room. To the left of the room, I saw a door leading to the kitchen and dining room areas. To the right, there was a staircase leading up to the bedrooms. And about a yard back from the staircase was a bathroom.
"This is beautiful Ioran" my mom said, gawking at what she saw.
"That's why I got this place" he replied. "Anyways, why don't you kids go and pick out your rooms? Just don't get the master bedroom. That's your mother and mine's."
I nodded and started up while Misaki said, "Alright!"
When I got upstairs, I looked into the first room. It was about a medium sized room. It had a round window that lit up the whole room. I'm pretty sure that it was the same one that I saw outside. The walls were white with a blue boarder at the top of the walls. The floor was regular wooden plank floors.
"I want this one" I said nonchalantly.
"That quick Natsume? Aww this one is cute!" My sister Misaki replied. "I wanted this one! I saw it from outside and I fell in love with it!" She said dramatically.
"Well too bad" I answered.
"Fine. I'll go and choose another one."
And with that, she left my room. I put my suitcase next to the closet which was on the right side of my room. It was in the far right corner. At the corner closer to the door, I saw a private bathroom complete with a shower and toilet with a sink. It was nothing fancy; the shower was the farthest back then the toilet and sink with a mirror and medicine cabinet. The shower was curtain less but I could just put in my own. I stood in the middle of my room and took a look around. I tried to picture where all of my things would go. It wasn't that hard.
When I finished picturing everything, my dad came in with a couple of moving men.
"Where do you want your bed, son" dad asked.
I pointed to the left corner of my room which was closest to the door. More moving men came in and I told them where to place everything; the bedside table next to my bed of course, my desk in the far left corner of my room, my bookshelf just underneath the window located in the center of the far wall. I went downstairs and grabbed the boxes of my stuff and brought it up to my room. I put my mangas and other books on my bookshelf and dressed my bed in its white and dark blue sheets, just like the blue boarders of paint on my bedroom walls. I put all of my pens and pencils and school stuff on my desk. I found a shower curtain that could go in the shower. It was red.
I put the lamp on the bedside table along with my digital alarm clock. I set it to the time: 5:07. When I was done putting all of my materials and stuff in my room, I put all of my clothes in the closet and set up my sink with the soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and all that kind of stuff. I put the shampoo and soap inside of the bathtub too. By the time I was finished, it was 5:33. The sun was low on the horizon but it didn't look as if it were going to set until about 6. I went downstairs and saw that my parents were decorating the living room.
"Oh, Natsume, are you done already?" Mom asked me, placing a framed photo on a small table beside the couch.
I nodded in reply, just standing by the staircase. Now what was I supposed to do?
"Why don't you explore the neighbor hood sport? Make some new friends?" dad asked.
Sighing, I replied, "Sure."
I walked to the front door, making sure I had my shoes on. Once I was sure, I said to my parents, "I'll be back in a few."
"Don't be out too long honey" my mother called after me.
I closed the door behind me, breathing in the sweet air. The scent of the Sakura tree was sweet. I made my way down the Sakura petal littered path to the sidewalk. I don't exactly know what I was looking for but I guess I can just go on a walk. Unconsciously, I made a left on the sidewalk, the opposite direction of the main entrance to the main neighborhood. I stuffed my hands into my pockets, not caring what was going to happen. I was just happy to explore a little while the sun was still out.
Too bad it didn't last. I turned to the voice who said that and I found a girl with strawberry blonde hair and light blue eyes. She wore a really short, light blue skirt and a pink tank top that showed off her 'cleavage'. In other words, she was a slut.
"I'm Luna Koizumi, your neighbor. It's nice to meet you" Luna said with her sickeningly sweet voice. It made me want to puke.
"Leave me alone, hag" I said. I turned away from her and started down the street once more.
"But don't you want a tour of the neighborhood?" she asked me.
She fluttered her eyelashes as she said this. My guess is that she's trying to flirt. And she's doing a horrible job at it.
"No" I answered her bluntly. I started down the sidewalk, AGAIN.
I heard her following me as I walked. Sighing, I said, "Would you leave me alone?"
I was beyond annoyed with this… this stalker! Why wasn't she leaving? Ugh, someone kill me now! I kept walking down the same street, letting its weaving road take me where it pleased. But that Koizumi girl kept on following me! I think it was about a mile when I finally snapped. Well, almost.
"U-uhh, Koizumi" I heard a soft, feminine voice say. It sounded like singing, except, she wasn't. "Your mother is looking for you."
I turned around and noticed Koizumi had done the same.
"Can't you see that I'm busy?" Koizumi asked the girl harshly.
I couldn't see the girl completely because Koizumi was blocking the way. But, I could tell that she had flinched.
"Yeah, I can see that, but your mother says it's something 'important'" the girl replied in a polite tone.
"Fine" Koizumi huffed.
Koizumi made her way around the girl and towards her house. The girl had turned away and watched Koizumi leave so I couldn't see her face. I could only identify her other features.
She had creamy skin. It looked soft. I was sooo tempted to touch it. Her hair was a light brown and down to her waist. It was silky and tied up in two pig tails with ribbons. There were little curls at the ends of her hair. I'm pretty sure those were natural by the way they looked. And by the looks of it, she had bangs. She had the figure of an hourglass; all the right curves in the perfect places. Her hands looked really soft too. Her finger nails were perfect and I could tell that it was also natural.
The girl was wearing a blue jean skirt that went to mid thigh and a pink shirt. She had black ballet flats on here dainty feet. So, to top all of that information off, she was really, REALLY beautiful.
The girl sighed and shook her head, looking down to the ground. She took a deep breath and stood up strait. Suddenly, she turned around and looked at me. I think that she had forgotten about me because she had a sheepish grin on her face.
She had honey brown eyes which shone with happiness. Her facial features were perfect; she had a heart shaped face with perfect eyebrows, her lips were a beautiful pink, nice and plump. Actually, she was the definition of an angel.
"Sorry about that" she apologized, bowing. When she came back up, she had a smile adorning her face, making her look even more angelic than she had looked before. "I didn't mean to ruin your walk. You must be new here. My name is Mikan. Mikan Sakura."
I nodded to her, replying "I'm Natsume Hyuuga."
"Nice to meet you Hyuuga!" she said. "Well, I got to go! See you around!"
And with that, the beautiful girl twirled around gracefully and walked back down the sidewalk, holding her hands behind her back. I watched her until she disappeared from sight.
"You too….Mikan." The way her name rolled off of my tongue made it feel as if the two of us were made for each other. And the way she said my name made it sound like music to my ears. It gave me goosebumps.
I don't know how long I stood out there, but I suddenly decided to go back home. Once more, I shoved my hands into my pockets, shaking my head. Gosh, I feel like a love sick puppy. But I couldn't have possibly fallen for her can I? Of course not! That would be impossible.
Before I knew it, I was about two doors down from my house and it was getting dark. All the windows of the houses around me were being lit up by lamps and lights. Suddenly, I heard a door opening and I looked to my right. And what I saw made me want to smile. It was Mikan, the girl I had met earlier.
"I'll get it" she called into the house as she shut the door.
She elegantly made her way down her porch steps, not missing a beat. When she was off of the last step, she noticed me…staring. Oh, god why was I staring?
"Oh, hi" she smiled warmly at me.
I fought the urge to smile back, nodding instead.
"What are you doing out here?" she asked me, confusion etched on her face. I have to admit, she looked cute when she did that.
"What's it to you?" I asked her, my tone emotionless.
"Well, it's getting dark and you still haven't gotten to your house" she replied bluntly.
"Are you worrying for me now? Well, you don't have to. My house is that one" I told her, a smirk on my face. I pointed to the house two doors down from hers in the direction I was going.
"Well you should get home. I assume you're going to Gakuen Alice. There's school tomorrow so you should get some rest. You must have had a hard day" she told me, going to her mailbox and getting the mail out.
"Okay" I said bluntly.
"Well, good night" she gold me, waving. She went up her porch steps, opened the door, and stepped into the house. Before she closed the door, she gave me a small wave and smile. And then, the door hid her image from me.
Sighing, I made my way back to my house. When I got in, my parents and sister greeted me. They had somehow set up the whole house with the furniture in the hour that I had left. We ate in the dining room and when we were done, I headed upstairs to my room. I took a shower and dressed up into black sweat pants, not caring if I didn't have a shirt or not. I brushed my teeth and got into bed.
I stared up at the ceiling, tracing the patterns in it with my eyes. Suddenly, a vision of the Mikan girl came into my sight. She really is beautiful. I want to get to know her. I don't know how I got sleepy, but soon, I found myself falling asleep, the image of Mikan still in my mind.
