My Little Rebel
(A My Candy Love Fic)
Chapter One: Starting Out
At Sweet Amoris
My alarm clock went off, signalling me to drag my sorry butt out of bed. That, and the constant screaming from downstairs.
No, my parents weren't fighting. They were in Peru, looking for some rare artefact from the Mayans.
It was my Aunt Abbey, singing along to the words of Madonna.
I groaned as I rubbed the sleep from my eyes, leaning on my elbows and glancing at my alarm clock. It read '6:30' in bright red numbers and I got out of bed.
Heading downstairs, I grabbed some toast from the kitchen, spread some butter onto them and placing them onto a plate before heading back up stairs. Doing this without my aunt even noticing me, sometimes I wonder if she notices anything now a days.
"Like a virgin!~" Aunt Abbey screamed, way off key and I groaned, shutting my door and playing some music from my IPhone onto dock. 'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen came on.
I went to the bathroom, eating some toast on the way and brushed my long, dark brown hair. I tied bits of my fringe back into a puff on the top and brushed my teeth. I applied some mascara on to keep my long black eyelashes out of my eyes, since they had an annoying habit of getting in there.
Scanning my closet, I found a nice purple singlet and a white blouse. I made sure to keep the blouse open and unbutton before throwing on some black three-quarter jeans.
When I glanced at my clock again, an hour had past and I had to leave now before I became late. I walked downstairs fixing my silver necklace with a silver feather pendant.
Aunt Abbey noticed me and smiled warmly. "Have a good day sweet pea. Make lots of friends and please stay out of trouble for my sake"
The way her eyes were full of hope made me bite back my retort and I nodded calmly, throwing my white bag over my shoulder.
"Will do Auntie" I murmured, doing my shoe laces for my sneakers and leaving the house. I walked to school, breathing in the cold morning air and biting my bottom lip.
I can try I thought, not believing it as I played with the feather pendant. It was cool underneath my fingertips.
In the distance, I could see the school in view and students walking into the front gates. I slowed my walk until it came to a full stop as I eyed the school carefully, wondering if it was worth it or not to walk in or I could ditch and hang out at the park.
Finally, I sighed and shook my head. Better get this over with…
I walked in and was met by the school principal. She looked nice, with the way she smiled warmly for a short, plump lady.
"Hello" she greeted me. "You must be Adrianne, welcome to Sweet Amoris High School. I hope you'll feel at home quickly here at your new school"
You and me both… I smiled. "Thank you"
Her smile brightened at my manners. "I would suggest you go see Nathaniel, the student body president. He'll help you make sure your registration is complete"
"Sure, where can I find him?" I asked her and she thought about it.
"He should be in the student council room" she answered and I nodded before heading off into the direction she pointed at. There was a door with black letters 'STUDENT COUNCIL ROOM' written on the front.
I opened the door and inside was a guy with blonde hair, chocolate brown eyes sitting at a desk with papers on the table. He wore a white blouse with a blue tie on and two pens in the front pocket.
"Hello? I'm looking for the student body president" I knocked on the door. "His name is Nathan…I think"
The guy chuckled. "Nathaniel and that's me. Do you need something?"
I nodded, completely sorry about mixing names up. "Uh yeah, the principal said something about you checking my enrolment form"
"Oh you're the new student" he realised with a smile. "Sure, I'll just take a look"
He turned away from me and shuffled through some papers on the desk he sat earlier. He picked up a brown folder and turned back to me with an apologetic look on his face.
"Well…it looks like there are some things missing here" he said and showed me the list of things required.
"A photo for my ID and $25 for enrolment" I read off and then nodded. "Seems simple enough"
"Also, you seemed to have forgotten to hand in one form, the one with parental signature" he informed me and I frowned, I thought I did hand it in during the winter break.
"I could've sworn I—That's it!" I snapped my fingers as I realised where it was, back on the fridge.
I quickly turned to leave and then glanced back with a smile. "Sorry, I'll leave everything else to you and be right back"
Without even waiting for his reply, I left the student council room and headed down the hall towards the front gate. Just as I reached the door, a familiar voice called out.
I groaned and slowly turned to see Ken running towards me excitedly. Ken? He was at my old school? What the hell is he doing here?
"Hey Adrianne, how's it going?" he asked me and I narrowed my eyes at him.
"What are you doing here Ken?" I asked, crossing my arms over my chest with an annoyed look on my face.
"I was sad when you left so I asked to be transferred here!" he answered, obviously happy with his choice.
I slapped my forehead. "Ken, how many times have I told you? It's not going to happen"
"Ten but I still believe it'll work!" he was determined and I was bored. Needing an excuse to get out of here, I glanced at my phone.
"Look, I need to deal with some things" I turned and left without waiting for his answer either. Just as I was crossing the courtyard, something red flashed in the corner of my eye.
Curious, I glanced over and saw a guy with red hair and brown eyes standing near a wall and glaring at me. He wore a leather jacket and a red shirt underneath; it practically screamed 'REBEL' from where I stood.
Neither of us said a word and I raised an eyebrow.
"Hi, I'm new" I said awkwardly and he glared.
"So what?" he snapped and I rolled my eyes.
"Are you always this nice?" I asked, sarcasm rolling off my tongue and he smirked at me.
"Especially with new students. I'm Castiel" he replied and I smirked back before glancing at the time.
"Sorry to cut this short but I've gotta run and pick up some things since they don't do shite in the office" I said.
Castiel raised an eyebrow with an amused smirk. "I know what you mean. Good luck with that idiot president"
I know I should've left to take care of the enrolment but I couldn't help but pull Castiel up on his comment. The way he said 'idiot president' sarcastically had caught my attention.
"Have a problem with him?" I asked, noticing his smirk getting bigger.
Castiel snorted. "Yeah, I've never seen anyone so uptight in my life"
My mind went back to Nathaniel and slowly, I found myself nodding in agreement.
"He's alright but does seem a little too high on the horse" I muttered and Castiel smirked.
"You'd better go and get whatever you need done. Otherwise they'll never leave you alone" he warned and I nodded, walking away only to glance back. His back was turned away from me and I sighed quietly to myself.
Better go and get this stuff sorted I reminded myself, jogging home and grabbing the slip. I jogged back to the school and went to the student council room.
"So your file, is it coming along?" Nathaniel asked and I handed him the slip.
I shook my head. "Do you know where I can get a photo from my ID?"
Nathaniel frowned and lightly tapped his chin and then he smiled warmly at me.
"You can go to the dollar store, they have a photo booth" he answered brightly and I nodded.
"Have you found my enrolment form yet?"
"I haven't had a chance to see if your enrolment form was around here, can you come back just in case?"
I sighed and regretfully nodded before leaving. I walked down the hallway and towards the courtyard. Again, Castiel was there, chilling on the wooden bench and he noticed me walking past.
He raised an eyebrow. "You again?"
I rolled my eyes. "Shouldn't you be in class?" I asked with a hand resting on one hip.
"Shouldn't you? What's with you leaving the school a lot?"
"I have to get a photo for my ID card" I answered in a bored tone and then frowned. I studied his shirt and the icon looked familiar as I walked over.
"That t-shirt reminds me of something…" I broke off and tried to remember where I've seen it before.
Castiel rolled his eyes. "Oh yeah, and what does it remind you of? Something you saw in one of your cartoons or something?"
"Shut up" I rolled my eyes. "That's a rock band"
Castiel seemed impressed by my knowledge, it slightly pissing me off a bit.
"Oh so the little new student knows the band Winged Skull?" he said, looking me up and down.
"I like to listen to rock sometimes. Skillet, Paramore and Evanescence are my favourites" I replied and he nodded.
"Cool, I don't know many girls that listen to them"
I crossed my arms over my chest. "To answer your earlier question, I'll be going to my last period class since I've been running around morning getting this stuff sorted. Plus the principal wants me to get a better look around the school"
He nodded in understanding and waved away. "Better get hopping then, Little Bunny"
I glared at him before walking off and heading to the Dollar Shop. An old guy at the counter smiled when I entered.
"How can I help you miss?" he asked kindly and I smiled back.
"I was wondering if I could get a photo taken?" I asked and he nodded, gesturing the photo booth. "Thanks"
As soon as that was taken care of, I headed back to the student council office and handed Nathaniel the photo.
Ten bucks better be worth it I thought bitterly and then shrugged it aside, no point on dwelling on it.
"Oh Adrianne, I forgot to tell you, I'm sorry but your registration couldn't be completed" Nathaniel apologised and I raised an eyebrow.
Keep it cool… "This is a joke right?" I asked skeptically and Nathaniel chuckled.
"Aww…you fell for it!" he chuckled lightly, clearly happy for the joke while I on the other hand was starting to lose it.
I sighed tiredly, rubbing in between my eyes. "That's not funny, you had me worried"
"Sorry, I was trying to be funny since you seem like the kind of girl who loves a laugh" he apologised for real this time and I gave him a small smile.
"Any other day sure but right now I'm sick of paper work and running around" I replied and he nodded.
"Everything's taken care of" he confirmed it by handing me a brown folder and I took it. "Just give that to the principal and I'll see you in English"
"So you're in my English class?"
He nodded and I left the room, only to run into the principal who smiled brightly at me.
"Adrianne! I trust everything is sorted with your enrolment?" she asked and I nodded, handing her the brown folder. "Excellent! Lunch should be soon so have a look around the school. You can go to the shops only during lunch"
"Sure" I replied and wandered the school a bit before the bell rang. I took this as an opportunity to go see the café I'll be working at this afternoon. I love my Aunt Abbey but she is hopeless with money and I am staying at her house…
I arrived and smiled brightly at the male manager. He looked to be around in his late forties with black hair and a matching goatee.
"You must be Adrianne, what are ya doing here?" he smirked.
"Just seeing where I'll be tortured for the rest of my school life" I teased and he chuckled lightly.
"Since you're here, I'll give ya your uniform" he disappeared out the back for a bit before returning with a white polo shirt and a royal blue waist apron. I took them and shoved them into my bag. "See ya at four"
I waved goodbye and headed back to school, dumping my uniform into my locker just as someone barged into my shoulder.
"Watch where you're going!" a blonde smirked with two girls beside her. One had black hair and the other a brunette.
I rolled my eyes. "Sorry that you're so unco-ordinated for a blonde" I replied and she glared.
"She just made fun of you Amber" the black haired girl told Amber.
"I know!" Amber snapped at her, causing the black haired girl to flinch back behind her. Amber took a step closer to me, in an imitating manner which I found amusing. "Do you know who you're messing with, slut?"
I pretended to think and then snapped my fingers. "You're the other Paris Hilton! If I recall from the rumours, the really dumb one right?"
She started glaring daggers at this point and I wondered if real daggers were going to appear and cut me.
"You better watch your back, accidents can happen here and in your case, they will happen" she sneered and then flipped her hair back as I stepped forward, causing her to step back.
I gave her a challenging smirk. "Same to you"
She glared before walking away, her two cronies following after her footsteps and I rolled my eyes. Before doing something worse or in the category of expulsion, I headed for class and sat at a desk in the middle row, closer to the window.
A girl with orange hair and blue eyes sat on the desk next to mine and smiled warmly. "Hi I'm Iris"
I smiled back. "Adrianne"
"I hope we become great friends" she said brightly and I nodded.
"I'd like that" I replied and noticed Nathaniel entering the classroom. He waved as he saw me and I gave him a tired smile before turning my attention back to the teacher.
"So how was your first lesson?" Iris asked me as we hung at my locker as soon as the bell went.
I shrugged my shoulders. "It was fine; I still think Macbeth is a better book to study than Romeo and Juliet"
There was a chuckle and Iris and I turned to see Castiel exiting the classroom with a smirk on his face.
"Oh? I thought girls were into all that mushy crap" he commented and I pulled a face.
"What's so romantic about committing suicide?" I rolled my eyes and Iris sighed happily, dream-like.
"Because they were willing to die for each other" she smiled. "I wish I could find a guy like that"
I dumped my books into my locker and grabbed my uniform. "It's stupid; they both could've left the city and start again. Romeo could've even gotten a job as a book clerk for all I care!"
"You work at Café Noru?" Castiel noticed the uniform and I held it closer to my chest.
"Yeah and? Don't come and muck around" I warned and he smirked.
"Thanks for the idea Little Bunny!" he called as he left and I growled in frustration.
Iris looked at Castiel thoughtfully. "I didn't know you and Castiel were friends"
I snorted as we left the school. "That's the last thing I'd call him"
Behind us, I heard someone call my name and I stopped walking. Iris stopped as well when she realised I wasn't walking and we both turned.
Nathaniel was running towards us and smiled at me. "Adrianne are you free right now? There's a place I want to show you"
"Sorry Nathaniel but I have to go to work" I held up my uniform to show I was telling the truth and his face fell slightly before nodding.
"Maybe another time?" he asked and I shrugged my shoulders.
He smiled and left for the student council room while I parted ways from Iris and headed to my part-time job as a waitress. My first day of school coming to a tiring end.
On a note, this is based on a favourite game of mine and I grabbed the name Cafe Noru from Pacthesis in one of her games. This reason I've posted this is because I randomly searched it to see if anyone had written a fanfic for this awesome game. People did, and a couple weren't as good as I thought they'd be. The idea was awesome but the grammar and such...well I'm contributing! I know there are some Castiel fans like me out there so here it is! For those who love Nathaniel (don't blame you, he's cute but his sister is a bitch) I'll be doing one after this one called My Little President.
