I Do Not Own Danny Phantom or Shugo Chara
Chapter 8 ~ Second Day of School
When we arrive in front of my school I waved by to Jazz and turned around and ran through the school gates and up to building. Phantom was flying after me only a foot or so behind me. I ran through the front doors and slid across the linoleum floors as I skid to a stop to keep from slamming into a group of upperclassmen. I came to a complete stop only a foot away from the group. I felt Phantom slam into my shoulder when he couldn't stop in time.
"Whats wrong Danny?" Phantom asked at he poked his head up over my shoulder to see why I stopped so suddenly.
I couldn't help a fearful swallow as I looked up at the upperclassmen as they turned to see what caused the loud screeching noise, that turned out to be my shoes sliding across the floor. It was the bullies from yesterday. I managed as sheepish smile at them as they realized who I was.
"Well, well, well. What have we got here?" The leader of the group said and he leaned he head down closer to mine with a smirk on his face.
"Oh." Phantom said softly with realization. I glanced at him as he pulled himself over my shoulder and hovered there. I watched his bright green eyes harden as he glared at the bullies. "I remember them from yesterday."
I glanced back at the upperclassmen and rubbed the back of my neck nervously. "Heh heh heh. Umm...Hi there." I said weakly. Smooth Fenton, real smooth. "Umm...If I may ask...what were your names again?" I asked trying to distract them so I could find an escape route, and get the hell outa dodge.
The leader looking guy blinked confused. "Name? You have no clue who we are?"
I shook my head slowly. "Nope...today is only my second day here." I glanced at Phantom and nodded my head to him. Phantom looked confused for a second then his eyes widened and he nodded. I watched as he turned and flew off a little ways and looked around. I quickly looked back at he the older boy in front of me.
"Well..fine. I'll tell you our names." He said with a smirk on his face. "I'm Tripp, This-"He points to a short skinny boy standing to the left of him with red hair. "-is Mark, and this-" It points to the slightly over weight boy on his right with brown hair. "-is Steven." The two other boys, Mark and Steven nodded and grinned evilly at me. "Now...Who are you?" He asked me.
I swallowed knowing that as soon as I told them my name, they would start wailing on me. Phantom, hurry up! Where are you! I mentally yelled in my head. In the corner of my vision I saw a Black and White blur. Phantom!
I smiled at the bullies in front of me. "Daniel Fenton, but please, call me Danny." Phantom flew up beside my head.
"There's a quick escape route in the direction I just came from. To your right." Phantom said to me as he glared at Tripp, Mark, and Steven. "Though I have no idea why you wont stick up for yourself." he said bitterly.
"Danny-boy eh?" Tripp said with widening smirk and he cracked his knuckles in his hands.
I nodded and glanced at Phantom. "Character Change?" I whispered to him softly. "I have no clue where to go even after you just told me."
Tripp paused when he saw me whisper something, to him, it seemed like thin air. "What are you talking about?" He asked confused and irritated.
I saw Phantom grin and nodded. "Character Change!" he yelled and next thing I know Phantom has control over my body. I saw the tips of my black bangs turn white, and in the window refection behind the bullies, my eyes turned green. What the heck?
"Sorry boys." I felt myself saying. "But I gotta jet, or I'm gonna be late for class!" and then my body turned around and bolted to the right. I could hear the other's running after me.
'Hurry Phantom! There right behind us!'
"Alright, hang on! I'm about to loose them!" Phantom said though my mouth. Phantom skid around the corner and then leapt 7 feet into the air and gripped onto a ledge and pulled myself up. I turned around and crouched down. We watched at the intended bullies tore around the corner in pursuit. They didn't even think to look up to see me sitting up on the ledge, so they ran right underneath us. Phantom made my body jump down and bolt in the opposite direction and ran down the hall and into the crowd. When we came up to my class we stopped and I got control over my body again. My hair and eyes turned back to normal.
I placed my hands on my knee's and panted heavily. I looked up at Phantom, whom was also panting slightly. "What the hell was that?" I asked with awe. Phantom blinked at me confused.
"What do you mean? That was a Character Change. You know that."
I shook my head. "No not that. I leapt 7 FEET into the air to grab onto the ledge!...how did I do that?" I exclaimed raising my hands slightly into the air.
Phantom blinked then laughed. "Oh that! Ha ha ha, Well you see when we Character Change, I transfer some of my ghostly ability into you, thus allowing you to jump higher. That and other stuff." He said with a grin on his face. I sighed and looked around realizing I had been talking to Phantom in my class room.
Bad news: I probably looked like an idiot to normal people.
Good news: No one was in the classroom.
I sighed in relief and smiled at Phantom. "Great team work buddy." I said and held up my hand. Phantom grinned even wider and flew over and high-fived my hand.
I straitened up and walked over to my desk and sat down. Phantom floated after me his black and white cloak rippling around his feet. His green eyes bright with laughter as he landed on my desk and sat down Indian-style. I looked at my watch on my wrist and saw that we still have 5 minutes before class started. I looked up at Phantom and smiled.
"So, how many powers do you have?" I asked as I pulled out a piece of paper and a pencil.
Phantom blinked smiled softly. "Well...seeing as how I'm a new ghost, not many yet. I have the basic powers, like invisibility,-"He quickly turned invisible before coming back into view. "- intangibility,-" His body turned clear, practically see through, then he dropped through the table before phasing back up and landing back on it and turned solid again. "-flight and ecto-energy." He floated a few inches off the table and then his hands began to glow green. He turned around, a green sphere appeared in his right hand and he flung it across the classroom letting it burst like fireworks in midair.
I stared in awe and smile. "Thats so cool." I said with a huge grin on my face then wrote that down on the paper.
Phantom smiled shyly and rubbed the back of his head. It looks like he was picking up a few traits of mine. "Yeah...but I'm hoping I can develop more as we begin to work together and become stronger."
I nodded in understanding. I heard the classroom door open and the pink haired girl from yesterday walked into the class. I glanced at Phantom who didn't seem at all worried. I looked back at the girl. What was her name again? Amu? Yeah, that was it. Amu turned her head and looked over at us. I felt my face pale when her golden eyes locked in on Phantom, who was hovering beside my head, not even caring that someone has walked into the classroom.
Holy crap! Can she see Phantom? I cleared my throat and glanced at Phantom who jumped slightly from the noise. He glanced at me and I flicked my eyes to Amu who also had jumped and broke her stare on Phantom. I narrowed my eyes curiously at her and she looked at me. She smiled sheepishly and walked over to her seat, which was right next to mine.
"Morning Danny." Amu said with a grin. "And...who is this?" She asked looking at Phantom. Phantom blinked in confusion and shifted uncomfortably. I saw him reach behind his head and pull up the hood of his cloak. He shifted to where he was half hiding behind my head.
I looked back at Amu. "Morning. You can see him?" I asked confused.
Amu smiled nervously and nodded. "Yeah. I have a few Guardian Characters of my own." She sat down in her seat. "You'll meet them later when you come down to the Royal Gardens." She said with a smile.
I blinked at her. "Really?"
Phantom slowly moved out from behind me, but his expression was still shy. "That's why you can see me. Only little kids and other people with Chara's and see us...that and animal." he said as and after thought.
Amu nodded again. "So, Whats your name?" She asked him with a small smile.
Phantom looked at her from under his hood. "Phantom."
I smiled softly. "Phantom is a very shy person. But he is my ghost Guardian Character."
Amu's eyes widened slight. "Ghost? Didn't you say your parents are Ghost Hunters?"
I nodded slowly and glanced at Phantom. "Yeah. But...This was my dream...To become free, like a roaming spirit." I said looking back at Amu, with a flush of embarrassment. "A weird dream yes, but its what I want. Where I use to live, the place was infested with ghost, and my parents kept saying that their all evil...but I could see that they all weren't. And most of them seemed so wistful and happy that...it kind of stuck with me." I rubbed the back of my head as I looked down at my desk.
Amu smiled softly at me. "Don't worry about it. Your dream isn't weird. To be honest
I'v seen weirder." she said with a chuckle.
I smiled up at her and almost jumped out of my seat when the bell rang and students started filing into class.
Amu looked at me. "You are coming to the Royal Gardens after school today, right?"
I glanced at Phantom. He nodded at me and I turned to Amu and nodded to her. "Yeah. we'll be there."
Amu grinned "Sweet." then she turned to her work.
Me and Phantom exchanged notes through out most of the class. Well I gave him the notes, while he talked, seeing as how no one could hear him except for Amu and I.
I can't wait to meet the other Chara's I passed to Phantom.
Phantom read it and laughed. "I can't either." He said with a big grin on his face. "I wonder what their like..."
How many do you think will be there?
Phantom paused after reading it and shrugged. "I have no clue how many."
I started to write something but jumped when Amu passed a piece of paper onto my desk.
There are 10 other Chara's at the Garden all together.
Mine and Phantoms eyes widened at the number. I was expecting, at the most, 3 or 5.
I glanced at Amu with a questioning look. When she nodded to confirm that is indeed how many I glanced at Phantom. We both grinned.
This was going to be AWSOME!
~ Well how was that? I hope it was good. In the next chapter or 2, you should be meeting all the other Characters. Well see you all next week! TA!
