"Alice-Sama, you look wonderful."
I brushed off the small compliment, stepping out of the car on wobbly legs. My hair was put into a low ponytail. Two long braids fell down both sides of my face, and my bangs were also brushed down. I wore the uniform, a black blazer with the school symbol, a panda with a bamboo stick(Weird, and KAWAII! *Clears throat* Say anything, and I'll slice you into pieces!) and a gold trim hem. A white button up shirt with a golden tie, and black slacks with a golden hem. I had chosen to wear black shoes(Thank Kami, no heels!). Luckily, I wore no makeup. I was then suggested to wear glasses by Eddrick, and I guess that I included them in my uniform.
Sigh. What am I some dress up doll?
The middle aged maid quickly grabbed my cheeks firmly, smiling down at me. Her forehead was wrinkled, and her smile quivered. "Now, Alice-Sama, before you enter your classroom, I want to remind you that there will be a lady named Sharon Rainsworth, who will assist you throughout the whole year. And the year after that and so on." She rolled her eyes at me, and I raised an eyebrow at her attitude.
"And?" I asked impatiently. The maid released my cheeks, patting my head firmly. "Don't get too involved with those students. Don't let them find out that you're a girl. Eddrick-Sama adores you dearly, and he won't let any boy taint you. Present yourself like a true gentlemen would, and please, whatever you do, don't form any contracts with anyone. And don't dirty your uniform." She gave me a tight squeeze on my shoulders, and I sighed, nodding slowly.
Not that I was listening or anything. The only thing I seemed to catch was act like a gentlemen and dirty my uniform or something. Whatever, it's not like they had control of my well being or anything.
Acting like a guy wouldn't be too hard, now would it? All I have to do is act like I always do.
"Arigato...?" I opened one eye, smiling at her, before turning on my heel to walk towards the gate. At my stay at the Xylander Mansion, I realized that all the Maids had not been picked off the streets unwillingly, but they had chosen to stay and love Eddrick. It was really unbelievable, yes. How could they be so loyal to a man who toys with their feelings and make them feel overused when forced to 'work' with 'clients'. The nerve of that man.
I couldn't help but tighten the hold on my bag strap, and slowly but carefully looked up at the tall building that was surrounded by a lot of land and students as well. I stood there for probably two minutes, looking on in awe. Who knew 'School' could be such a big place! It could even go head to toe with the Xylander Mansion.
I let my grip on the bag loosen and sneered at myself. Oh look, little Alice is already getting all warm and comfortable in the Human World-Is what Alyss would say to tease me. Don't get too comfortable Alice-no, B-Rabbit. I took in a deep breath, and walking through the big double doors, a smirk rising to my lips unknowingly.
Oz Vessalius POV
"Hey, Gil?" My timid servant looked back at me from his seat, his curly hair covering the right side of his face.
My other friend, George sat next to me on my right. He let his head rest lethargically. He had sloppy orange hair, and brown eyes. He groaned and forced his head up, glaring at both me and Gil. Geez, how much sleep did he get last night?
"Yes, Young Master?" He asked, unlike his appearance, his voice was small yet firm. I smiled a bit, unpacking my bag and laying out my books on my desk.
"How was the date with um-" I sighed in annoyance when my mind suddenly went blank. What was that girl's name again? Sam? No. Emily? No, dumped her last month. Ally? Nope, that girl was too clingy to Gil and flirted with me as well. Ew, Such a bother. I stopped unpacking for a moment, staring at Gilbert until he understood that I forgot his girlfriend's name.
"Wow, Oz. Just wow. You're pathetic. Too many girls on your mind." I heard George say, trying to get on my nerves. I glowered, and guessed a random name.
It didn't take him long.
"Blair." Gil said in a whisper.
I quickly avoided the awkward atmosphere and moved on with the subject. "Yeah, how is she? Have you been treating her right, or do I have to enlighten you again?" I snickered when he blushed a bit, his cheeks pink. I raised an eyebrow in amusement. Even if Gil was my best friend and servant, it was funny and easy as hell to mess with his mind like a innocent child.
"Yeah, well she's really nice. Unlike Ally, who um, didn't approve of our relationship." Gil explained to me, avoiding eye contact with me.
I grabbed his chin, bringing my face closer to his, smiling. I could already see his face paling and sweat forming on his forehead. His gold eyes widened in shock. "That's so cute, Gil. I wonder what kind of relationship you meant by that. But, I think that I can already guess." I used one of my fingers to tickle his chin.
Raven, Gil's chain was quick to turn to us, getting intrigued with what was going on. He had shaggy jet black hair that reached past his shoulders by an inch, and yellow eyes, like Gil. They could be twins, it they would change their hairstyles.
Oh, you want to know what a chain is. Okay, I'll elaborate. Chains are former humans that have been held in the Abyss. They start to transform into these changes after being overwhelmed with the power of the Abyss. So, yeah, they aren't humans anymore. Although they become really strong beings, they are unable to escape the Abyss without having a human contractor to grant them enough power to escape. In Pandora, chains are all in the forms of humans, and have legal contractors. These legal contractors are basically the other half of the school's population. In Pandora, we are warned of creating illegal contracts with stray chains. If we do-um it's kinda hard to explain since I haven't experienced it. You and your chain are sent to the deepest depths of the Abyss. So yeah, be warned.
By the way, I'm one of those independent low lives that have to hide everyday from crazy contractors and chains because I have no chain to depend on. Yeah, right, like I'd hide.
"I don't think that Gilbert was suggesting that your relationship together was sexual or anything, Oz-Sama." He said, with boredom, giving us no reaction as from his facial expression. I raised an eyebrow and let Gil go.
Gil quickly pushed away from my desk, already turning blue, and eyebrows twitching. I gave him a blank look, continuing to unpack. "Master, surely you must be mistaken. I meant servant and Master relationship. My job." Gil raised both hands up defensively.
George laughed. "He was just messing with you, Gilbert. Calm down. But hey, I don't blame you, he's practically on every girl's tail, cuddling, kissing, and doing what not with them." George said, combing his bangs back, with his fingers.
"George!" Gil hissed, his eyes narrowing at the orange haired boy. George gave a small laugh that really started pissing me off.
"Shut up." I snapped at him, not really something I did often. I took in a deep breath, trying not to loose my cool. Gil looked at me, surprised. George didn't look surprised at all. As if he had anticipated my reaction.
OK, maybe I did mess around with girls, a lot. But, I never really did lose my first kiss or anything, if you must ask, to any of them. I respected girls, while most were easy to wrap around my finger. But, I would never force a girl to lose something precious to her, it was just wrong.
"George, can't you just drop it?"
"Nope. I'm having too much fun."
"Oh, I get it. You're just mad about what happened with Emily." I retorted, scrunching up my nose, and folding my arms over my chest, George looked at me, almost with killer intent, and I smirked.
I pressed my ear to the hard white door, letting my weight lean against it. An adult woman with light brown hair and pink eyes had just walked in, wearing a long black skirt that flowered around her feet and a purple button up shirt.
"You must be Alice, right? Alice Xylander. I'm Sharon Rainsworth. I'm a teacher and I've been assigned as your personal tech." The young woman didn't look that older than me.
"Hi, Miss Sharon. And please, just call me Alice. No last name, no honorifics please." I said, smiling.
Miss Sharon blushed fully, swooning. "Oh my goodness! You're just too cute, Alice-Chan! Kya! I think I'm going to have a Meltdown!" She squealed, moving around like jelly. I stared at her, horrified.
"M-Miss Sharon...?" I stuttered, my eyes fluttering in surprise. Miss Sharon quickly adjusted her posture, shaking her head. She turned her back to me, and flipping the hair off her shoulder.
"Sorry, about that. Just wait out here before I call you in to introduce yourself." She winked at me before strutting into the classroom.
"W-What? Why did you call me, Alice-Chan? I'm a guy you know?" I said stubbornly, crossing my arms over my chest.
Sharon just smiled and shook her finger, holding the door open. "I can just tell, Alice-Chan." She turned around and walked back in before I could even correct her about using honorifics.
I pursed my lips, furrowing my eyebrows. "Just what does 'Tech' mean exactly?" I placed my hand on the door, trying to hear more of the conversation between the adult and the students.
"-and please welcome her into this community with wide loving arms. Alice Xylander!" I squealed in shock as the door suddenly opened, and thanks to gravity I was pulled along with it.
Alice landed softly on the ground, a small bump forming on her head, and the uncomfortable feeling of plastic being pushed against her nose(glasses). The class roared with light laughter, and chuckles. Even Sharon herself couldn't help but laugh cutely at Alice. Well, I can't blame her for being embarrassed.
Fearing the worst of humiliation, Alice jumped up, holding her bag close to her chest, looking around the classroom, with big and fierce eyes. Shut up. She wanted to yell abruptly. Don't you dare laugh at the one person who could end your life in a swipe of her scythe if she wanted to. A small blush formed on her cheeks from embarrassment.
"A-Alice, please introduce yourself and state whether you are a chain or wish to be a contractor. Also, if you have anything else to add say anything you want the class to know about you." Sharon instructed, wiping away any tears in her eyes.
Alice puffed out her cheeks, grabbing a piece of chalk, from Sharon's open palms, and wrote out her name in big letters on the Chalk Board with her back to everyone.
She spun around to meet the gazes of her surprised classmates. "My name is Alice. Just Alice. No last name, no honorifics." She said, handing the small piece of chalk back to Sharon.
"I'm a chain." She finally said, placing her bag on her shoulder, and letting her right hand rest on her hip.
"So, you all better watch it, and not get in my way! Or else you'll have to face the consequences, ya'll bunch of fuckers! Got that?!" She snapped, beaming with pride.
Her classmates were in awe at her little presentation, but kept silent the moment. Alice smirked and placed her hands firmly on her hips. The fun she would have with these people once she was able to regain the form of a B-Rabbit.
"Wow, I don't think I've known a guy cool enough to say something like that." Alice ignored the whispers that circulated around the room.
"Yeah, I would love to be his servant."
"Who's hotter? Oz-Sama, or Alice-Sama!"
"Oz-Sama of course!"
"You bite your tongue! Alice-Sama has some dark and mysterious aura around him."
Oz stared at Alice with slight interest smiling to himself. I can't believe that the guy looks as cute as a girl...but his attitude's scary as hell. Was the only thought running through his head. Gil looked back at his Master, sighing helplessly when he saw his attentive look.
Unknown to anyone, George leaned across his desk, and when Oz had drifted into his own wonderland, he had swiftly snipped his scissors into his black uniform jacket pocket. He was satisfied when he had created a decent sized hole, quickly retreating and hiding the scissors behind his back.
Alice kept her gaze on him, giving him a I-saw-watch-you-did-so-don't-act-so-sly look. George blushed a bit, smiling widely at her, and Alice only glared back.
Sharon pulled Alice into her bosom holding her tenderly. Alice blushed deeply, trying to push her away. "Ara~, isn't Alice-Chan just too cute?" Sharon squealed, successfully hugging a purple faced Alice to her chest. The boys in the classroom started to get excited, and the girls just stared at the two, dumbfounded.
"Wow, he's only been here for like five minutes and he's even got Sharon-Sensei wrapped around his finger."
"I feel really jealous for some reason."
"Oz looks stumped."
"Who cares. Go get her kid!"
Alice started pushing away again, using the palms of her hands. "I canf vweef! Fifu, lef go offu we." Alice said, her voice muffled. Sharon finally let her go, giving her a small confused look. "What?"
Alice took in a deep breath, exhaling. Her face turning back to its normal color. She held a hand to her chest, and took a step back, glaring at the innocent looking Sharon. "What the hell was that about?! I said, 'I can't breathe. Please, let go of me.' Didn't I already tell you, no honorifics!" Alice huffed, and crossed her arms over her chest, the small bag dangling from one of her arms.
Sharon smiled wickedly. "Right, Alice-Chan. Why don't you sit right next to Oz-Sama, by the window?" She patted Alice's shoulder, nodding over at Oz, who was secretly being thankful. Alice nodded, her frown deepening. The boy had been staring at her the whole time with this creepy look on his face.
Alice's mood darkened and she looked down at her feet. Sharon leaned over her shoulder, raising an eyebrow. Just what could Alice be upset with now? She got to sit right next to the most wanted boy in the whole school.
"Why do I have to sit next to such a-a-a-Eh? What was the word again?" She turned her head to Sharon. Sharon held a finger to her lips before she smiled. "Oh, you must mean to call Oz-Sama a pervert." Sharon explained.
Alice nodded. "Yeah, a pervert!" Alice outburst, pointing a small accusing finger at the boy guilty as charged. Oz's jaw comically dropped to the ground, his eyes bulging out of his head in disbelief This boy had just walked in five minutes ago and was already accusing him of being a pervert! He was obviously interested in girls, so invitation rejected!
Sharon giggled, and patted Alice's head affectionately. "Now, now, Alice. You can't go around calling people perverts. It's not nice, you see." Alice growled a bit, narrowing her eyes at her tech. Oz gave her an annoyed look. Pervert?! Just what makes me a pervert?!
"But Oz-Sama is a player so it's safe to not get too involved with him. There's even a rumor that he likes frail and cute boys like you." Sharon whispered in Alice's ear. Unfortunately loud enough for the whole class to hear. Oz felt as if he was reduced to dust and blown away.
"That guy was staring at me with those leaching eyes! Yeah, I'm talking to you, Oogly eyes!" She yelled, using one of the student's desk as a stepping stool. Oz paled and quickly adverted his eyes from hers. Best not to get him even more angry.
Sharon paled at Alice. "Now, now, Alice. Please don't embarrass Oz-Sama with his sexual obsession over young boys. He's just a Shotacon." Sharon scolded lightly. Alice obeyed, and crossed her arms over her chest.
Oz's jaw dropped to the floor in shock. He quickly stood up, slamming the palms of his hands hard onto his desk. "Sharon-Sensei! In my defense I have no interest in boys, and isn't Alice-San- I don't know, 15?" He asked, paling.
Alice pursed her lips, pulling on Sharon's sleeve. Sharon leaned over a bit, allowing Alice to whisper in her ear.
Sharon retreated and smiled, shaking her head slightly at Oz. "Nope. Alice-Chan is 13 years old. Yep, he skipped a grade." She confirmed. Alice rolled her eyes at the horror struck Oz.
THAT MAKES HIM EVEN MORE ADORABLE!
"Oh my! I feel as if I'm having a heart attack! Or is it that Alice-Sama has stricken me with this strong beam of love?" A girl with green hair, Ally swooned with adoration. Alice furrowed a brow and took a step back almost bumping into Sharon. Now she had decided that it was best to keep her mouth shut.
A random tall guy stood up from his desk, with an angry expression on his face. "Okay, I know you're new and all, but do not mess with my girlfriend. So, stop looking at her like that, she's mine!" He said irate. Alice smirked but a tick mark was obviously popping out from her forehead.
Sharon paled a bit. "Now, now, Alice-Chan. No need to respond-" She was ignored and put to the side.
"Shut the fuck up and just sit down, you obsessed stalker. And second, talk to your 'girlfriend', not me, 'cause last time I checked, she was the one swooning over some 13 year old kid." Alice pointed at him, with a scowl on her face.
The boy's eyes narrowed and he glared at her. "It wasn't her faul-"
Alice's death glare shut him up. "What are you, her damn fan club?" She seethed, grinding her teeth.
Oz was about to stand up when he noticed that Sharon had apparently lost control of the situation. "X-Xylander-San, I don't think that you're language-"
Alice cocked her head, to face him and growled. "Don't call me that."
Oz closed his mouth and quickly sat back down.
George snickered, leaning into the palm of his left hand. "Of course. It sounds like Oz to try to use his charms on a foul mouthed new kid. Even if it's a young boy. Must have backfired on you, huh?" He laughed, shaking his head. Oz glared at George and bit his lip, forcing himself not to throw an insult back at him.
Gil looked at Alice and George with hatred, and his chain, Raven reached for his hand from across the table, giving it a small pat. Gil looked at him, his eyes softening. The jet black shaggy haired boy gave him a suppressing look and retreated back to his seat, looking at his folded hands on his desk.
Alice glared at George, fist pulled out threateningly. "Oi! You with the orange hair! Yeah, you scatter brain! Don't insult that perverted oogly eyed kid, only I can do that. So lay off!" Alice said, standing up for the boy, not really knowing why she had done it. Oz looked up at her with little hope in his eyes.
Alice was flustered when she noticed a few eyes looking back at her in surprise. "What the hell are you looking at, bystanders!"
"Could it be- forbidden unrequited love?"
"A manly romance? Is Gilbert getting jealous?"
"Why would I be jealous?! Me and the young master have no such of a relationship whatsoever!"
"Yeah, because Gil-Nii is mine."
"It's Yaoi!" *Squeal*
Sharon's eyes transformed into the shapes of hearts.
"Alice-Chan is just too cute! Oh, just call me Onee-Chan!" Sharon started hugging Alice again, and Alice cried out in horror. "C-Cut it out, Tech-San!" Alice commanded, almost begging. Sharon shook her head, pouting.
"That just won't do! Onee-Chan! Onee-Chan!" Sharon insisted, rubbing Alice's head to hers. Alice almost fainted from shock and lose of oxygen. The class stared in horror as their teacher smothered the new student, Alice.
"Come on, say it. No- yell it out with enthusiasm. Like this, ONEE-CHAN!"
"No way in Hell."
"Come on, say it. Or I'll hug you even more tighter! ALICE-CHAN!"
"YES, YES, THAT'S THE WAY ALICE-CHAN! CALL OUT ONE MORE TIME!"
Being around Sharon was the only true reason why I would always try to keep my outburt at a minimum in class. - Alice Xylander
"W-W-What w-was that for?" I asked, flushed, trying to deny what had just happened. Eddrick pulled out a cigarette from his pack, before shoving the rest in his pocket. He held a finger up to his lips, signaling for me to keep my voice low. I ignored him, and waved a threatening fist in my face.
"Don't you dare touch like that again if you fear for your life! I swear if you touch me again- I'll-!" He took a step forward, grabbing my wrist roughly, and backing me into a wall. I winced at the amount of force that he had used to push me into the wall. I looked up at his hardened gaze and growled lowly, hoping that he would take a hint, and stop keeping me captive.
"What will you do now Alice?"
