VTM: Extended and updated version of my fic for the One Piece Yaoi Drabble Community over on Live Journal. This Prompt was 'Monster' so I went for a horror spin this time around. Be warned that this might not be for big Hancock fans.
Boa Hancock was the most popular girl in school. She was the kind of girl that had the world in the palm in her hand; boys, girls, teachers, or student, all fawned over her. Boa was beautiful, but cold, anyone who would ask her out was shot down in an instant. It was a surprise to everyone when she had ended up falling in love with the unruly Monkey D. Luffy. It was even more shocking when Luffy didn't return her affections.
She confessed to him, sent him love letters, and even asked him out. But in the end it all just seemed to bounce off the boy. "But why…?" Hancock asked with a stubborn pout.
Luffy looked down at his feet, he didn't seem to sure on what to say. "…I…I like someone else." he said hastily.
"W-what?" Hancock said in shock. No one had ever said 'no' to her before, let alone say that they liked someone over her. "Who!"
Luffy frowned and blushed. "I won't tell you! Just stop chasing me!" He then hurried off to his class, leaving Boa standing there in awe.
Hancock didn't give up; she began following Luffy at a distance, hoping to one day catch him with this 'other girl'. But what girl would he honestly prefer? One day she followed Luffy during lunchtime to an empty hallway; it was a nice secluded spot during this time of day.
"Sorry I'm late!" Luffy said with a grin.
"Na, you know lunch is going to be over soon…" said an older boy with freckles. Hancock recognized him from her class. His name was Portgas D. Ace, a fairly mischievous, but handsome boy with childish freckles speckled across his face. He was popular with the girls but oddly didn't have a girlfriend yet.
Hancock pouted slightly. It seemed she ran into another dead end. But then she noticed something
Luffy was blushing, he was looking at Ace with eyes that she wished he'd look at her with, eyes of adoration.
The two sat and ate together; they talked mostly about pointless things. What meats were the best, who's teacher was better, Shanks or Newgate, and who could kick who's ass.
At that point Ace began showing Luffy a new technique Mr. Newgate taught him. But when Luffy got close he began to blush a little too. They then backed away from each other; an awkward silence filled the air.
"O-Oi…" Ace said suddenly. "Let's head back to our classes. We'll be late if we stick around too long."
Luffy smiled and gave a nod. "Yeah, I know, I just do get to hang out with you that often." He said with a slight pout.
Ace smiled and gave a slight laugh. "You've got a ton of friends though. Why waste your time with me?"
"Because Ace is my friend too, ne?" Luffy said with a grin. "Na, think you can help me with some homework after school?"
Ace scratched the back of his head then gave a nod. "Sure, no problem. And maybe after that…we could…" He didn't finish. "Let's meet up after school and we'll go back to my place."
"YOSH!" Luffy said excitedly. "See you after school!" He then ran off for class.
At this point Hancock had seen quite enough, she stormed off in a rage. For the rest of the day she was in a foul mood, and after school she punched her locker door over and over again. Not only did Luffy not love her back, he chose a man over her! There was just no forgiveness for such an insult!
She followed them to an apartment, after an hour or so Luffy left saying he was going to be back later that night with a 'surprise'. Hancock's blood boiled, waited until she was sure Luffy was gone. She then walked up to the door.
Ace soon opened the door.
"Ah! Ace!" Hancock said sweetly, she put up a convincingly cute front.
Ace gave a confused blink, it took him a moment to recognize just who this girl was. "Oh, you're from my class, Hancock, right? What's up?"
"Sorry to bother you, but someone in the class said they saw you pick up my text book, I really need it back." Hancock said innocently.
Ace shook his head. "Sorry, but I didn't." How did Boa know where he lived? It was kind of odd for her to just pop up out of the blue like this. Ace was beginning to get an uneasy feeling, there was a look in her eyes that betrayed the expression on her face.
"Oh, I see…" Hancock said with a small pout. "Um, if possible, I need to make a quick phone call. I need to get a ride back to my place. Could I please come in and use your phone?" She gave him the cutest look she could muster. She smiled a little when she saw Ace blush a little, she knew she had him.
"S-sure, come in." Ace let her into the apartment and shut the door.
"Thank you very much." Boa said sweetly.
"Would you like something to drink?" Ace asked, he wasn't sure what else he could do other than try to be a little courteous.
"Oh yes, I'm parched." She said with a smile. Hancock watched as Ace headed for the kitchen. Her eyes then trailed along to the rest of the apartment. It was small, but kept fairly clean. She then spotted a picture on the table by the phone. It was of Luffy and Ace, Luffy was pouting while Ace had him in a head lock, playfully messing up the younger boy's hair. Hancock scowled at it and promptly dropped the picture frame into the garbage bin next to the table. She was not going to share Luffy with anyone. When Ace came back with the tea Hancock's eyes gained an icy look to them.
Ace shifted a little, he felt uncomfortable now. He could see pure hate in that girl's eyes. But it wasn't like he'd ever done anything to her; hell, this was the first time they ever even spoke to each other.
"I hate you." Boa said, there was a dark tone in her voice and her face was hard to read, there seems to be suppressed anger trying to break free. As if it were a mask being torn off to reveal the girl's true nature.
"Huh? Why?" Ace asked; his head tilted to the side.
Hancock glared at him. "Because, it's your fault; it's because of you that he won't love me." She said accusingly.
"Wait…you…" Ace's eyes went wide with realization. "So you're the girl that's been stalking him?"
"Stalking!" Hancock's body tensed at the word. "How dare you accuse me of such a thing!"
Ace then glared at her, all traces of friendliness disappearing in seconds. "Leave Luffy alone, you're causing him nothing but trouble."
"You just want him for yourself." Hancock said suddenly.
That statement took Ace off guard. "What? Don't be stupid! I'm his brother!"
"Brother?" This took Hancock by surprise, her eyes then narrowed with suspicion. "Liar."
"Well, foster brother..." Ace suddenly admitted. "Either way, it doesn't matter, get the hell out of my apartment and leave Lu alone."
"Ah, I see how it is…" Hancock said. "Hmph." The beautiful student crossed her arms and sneered at the man before her. Her stare was like daggers, piercing through whatever facade Ace could put up. "I've seen you, when you two try to be alone…"she then gave a small smirk. "I bet you take advantage of him, don't you? You like it when he looks at you the way he does, right? What were you planning to do after helping him with his homework?"
Ace again was caught a little off guard. He could feel his temper starting to flare. "S-shut up…"
Hancock continued, now with a wicked smile on her face. "What a cruel 'brother' you are…You're disgusting, you're a monster..."
"I said shut up!" Ace shouted. "Get the hell out of here or I'll call the cops!"
"Go ahead… It's not like you'll be alive to tell them anything." Hancock said calmly as she reached into her school bag and took out a large kitchen knife. "Even if you are his precious 'brother'…you are still competition."
