Hello there! This is my first ever FanFic, but feel free to flame me if so necessary! I'm always up for a good critique, whether I get fried or not. I'm hoping to update this pretty often, but if you guys want to read more, you have to tell me! This will be shorter than a normal chapter.
Jinx made her way around the dark streets, holding a single red rose in her small, pale hands. She had stood up to Madame Rouge only five days ago... But she knew this was nowhere near over. Thinking back, she felt her face warm at the week's events. This Kid Flash, this perfectly unusual mystery. She shook her head and walked on, noticing the buildings progressively getting dirtier and grimier as she continued. It wasn't like she was nervous. She was Jinx after all. Who would want to mess with the queen of bad luck? Over the last few days, she noticed roses appearing everywhere she went. On her nightstand, on her shelves, even when she was outside, working on her flexibility. Was he relentless?
She heaved a sigh, feeling the confusion she held churn within her. She had to question all of this. Her meaning. Her purpose. She had become who she was with the intent of making a name for herself, never having to fear what lay in the shadows because she was that scary monster held within them. "I thought I was doing everything right. I thought I was finally going to be the one on top. You're so stupid, you Jinx," she growled to herself, using her own moniker to insult her already low self-esteem.
"Don't be so hard on yourself Lucky," Kid Flash said, coming out of nowhere and shocking her into tripping, falling flat on her back. "Jeez, I didn't know I could sweep you off your feet that easily!" He said cockily.
"Oh shut up and leave me alone already." She shot a halfhearted hex at him and he easily sidestepped it.
"Temper much?" He joked, picking her up.
"Don't touch me you... You... You something!" She couldn't even come up with a decent insult. They were both freaks, after all. Jinx stalked off angrily, only to find her face meeting his chest.
"Aw, now that's just mean. C'mon, you know you love me," he told her with a boyish smile, "why are you even down here in the ghetto?"
She sighed and backed up a bit so she could look him in the eye, "if you really need to know, I could not stand another second in that damned base being heckled because I let you go." She grimaced, thinking about the crap she'd be getting from the Hive Five for weeks. It almost didn't seem worth it, when she thought about it. Their team was useless. They couldn't even count to six. She spent all of her time babysitting them, like she was a nanny or something.
"Why do you even bother with them?" He said, mirroring her thoughts, "I mean, you could do a hell of a lot better than those idiots and you know it. I think you're capable of doing a whole lot more than anyone gives you credit for, slow-poke." She looked at him, shaking her head in frustration.
"You just don't get it. If I lose them, then I lose everything. I need a team. Even if it doesn't function correctly, or at all. And what else am I going to do? Being a hero like you, Mr. Goody Goody, defender of Jump City? I'd rather have all of my bones broken in a freak accident." He looked at her, puzzled.
"What's so wrong with that?" He asked her.
"You just wouldn't understand," she huffed and began walking in the opposite direction of Kid Flash. Her feet suddenly left the floor and she thrashed, trying to break his grip. It was pointless. Within seconds they were on top of one of the high rise buildings in Jump City.
"I have time. Enlighten me," he said with a smirk, sitting on the edge of the roof and tapping his foot rapidly.
"No. Take me home."
"You're not getting off of this roof until you tell me," he said, drawing out the word me. She frowned at him and shot a hex, knocking him off of the wall. He hurtled through the air, catching a hold of one to the poles and rocketing himself back up to the top. When he made it to the top, she was... Gone.
Well, there goes another beginning x3 The next chapters will have first person instead of third so we can get some insight on their thoughts. Rate and review if you would be so kind!
