California or Bust! - Chapter One: The Unexpected Visitors

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------

AN: Now, I don't really expect to get a lot of reviews for this fic. It is one of my first, so don't be too mean. I hope that you would review if you enjoy it though. I'm also open to any suggestions (*wink wink hint hint*) and flames. Well, I suppose I should let you get on to reading the baka thing, so here ya go!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------

"Dammit Mario! Die already!" A blonde haired, blue eyed teen yelled at the TV screen.

"Mia, I don't think swearing at the screen is going to help you win," a brunette about that same age as the blonde, who was now known as Mia, said.

"I'd have to agree with Kio," another girl said, who had light brown hair.

"Well then," Mia proclaimed, "I'll show you!"

"Whatever," Kio mumbled.

Just then, the doorbell rang and Mia fell off the edge of the playing field on Smash Bros. MeleeĀ© and died, for the tenth time.

"ARG! NO!" Mia yelled. "BAKA DOORBELL!" And with that, Mia stomped off to the front door. "No we don't want any!" Mia yelled through the closed door.

"Maybe we should try another house," a voice from outside the door said.

"This is the last house. If they don't answer, we're camping outside," another voice said monotonously.

"Outside?!" a shocked voice yelled.

"Yes you braided baka, outside," a different, annoyed voice snapped.

Mia sighed. "Might as well," she mumbled before un-locking and opening the door. She was shocked beyond words when she saw five, very familiar, sixteen-year-old guys standing in the doorway. "Oh. My. God.!" was all Mia could get out. Of course, as if on cue, her curios friends, Kiomay (AKA Kio, Kio-chan, Krysty; dark brown hair going down to her waist with blood red highlights; typical serious teen) and Lis (AKA Lisi, Lisa, Li; light- brown hair midway down her back; typical non-violent teen), peered down the hallway to see what was up. Their eyes both widened and Li promptly fainted at what they saw.

"Oh crap. Kio, um, could you drag Li into the living room for me?" Mia asked, feeling slightly shocked still. Mia motioned for the guys to follow her to the living room and they all shuffled into it.

Kio just stood there gawking at the guys before blankly replying, "Huh? Oh, sure." And it took her another five minutes to drag Li into the living room.

"Now, um, can we help you guys?" Mia asked, trying not to stare.

"We're sorry to intrude, but-" Quatre started but was cut off by Wufei.

"Would you stop being so damn polite and just get to the point!"

"What I was trying to say is that we've been stranded here somehow and we need a place to stay," Quatre said.

"Well," Mia started, "that could be a bit of a problem."

"Hm?" Heero mumbled.

"What Mia is trying to say, is that, at this time of the year, there aren't many places to stay," Li stated, having just woke up and Kio and her were now standing in the doorway.

"So what do you suggest we do?" Trowa questioned.

"I. have no idea," Mia said. Everyone else facefaulted.

"Mia? Without an idea, or a wisecrack, for the current scenario? Oh my god! Who are you and what have you done with Mia?!" Li yelled and started shaking Mia by the shoulders.

"Of course I'm not Mia, I'm an alien from the planet Zorg," Mia replied sarcastically while the guys just stared at the two with confused looks.

"That's the Mia we all know!" Li yelled with a smile.

"Do you weak onnas have any idea what we can do about our current scenario or not?" Wufei asked angrily.

Mia twitched, "What did you just call us?" More twitching on Mia's part.

"Weak onnas," Wufei replied calmly.

"Okay, now you die," Mia said through gritted teeth before lifting up a near-by dining room chair and holding it above Wufei's head. The guys all drew their weapons while Wufei just stood there, looking ten shades paler. Mia swung the chair, but then, stopped in mid-swing. "Wait. if I kill him. then I'll get blood all over my carpet. Well, that won't do," she said, lowering the chair and replacing it on the ground.

"Crazy onnas." Wufei muttered, though still looking quite pale.

"Don't push your luck, I just might have to forget about the carpet and kill you anyway," Mia said. Wufei fell silent.

"Uh, guys? Shouldn't we try to figure out what to do about finding a place to stay?" Quatre asked.

"Well, how long are you planning on staying?" Li questioned.

"Why?" Duo asked.

"So we can find out where you can and can't stay," Li replied.

"Do any of you have a computer?" Heero asked.

"Yeah, we all do. But Mia's is the newest. It's a laptop," Kio said.

"Where is it?" Heero questioned again.

"In my room, I'll go grab it," Mia replied before running off to her room. She returned a few minutes later with a granite-colored laptop under her arm. "Here," she said as she handed it to Heero, "don't destroy it."

"Hm," Heero mumbled and started typing.

Mia just shrugged and sat down on the couch.

"Do you guys want anything to eat?" Li asked.

"No thank you," Quatre replied politely.

"Nope, not hungry," replied Duo.

"That's a first," muttered Wufei.

Trowa simply shook his head.

"Thanks but no thanks Li," was Mia's answer.

"No," was the monotone answer from Heero, whom was still typing away on Mia's laptop.

"No thanks," said Kio.

"No," replied Wufei.

"Well, okay then," said Li as she trotted off into the kitchen.

Heero closed the laptop. "We'll have to stay for at least a month," he said, answering Li's question.

"A month, eh? Yo, Kio. Could you call around and see if any hotels have vacancies for that long? I'll check the net," Mia said. Kio nodded and walked out of the room while Mia took her laptop from Heero and began to check the net.

Five minutes later, Kio came back into the living room shaking her head. Li trailed behind her.

"No luck?" Mia asked.

"Nope," was Kio's dull reply.

Mia sighed. "I'm not having any luck either. All the hotels are full."

The group of eight sat around the living room pondering what to do; when they were interrupted by the doorbell.

Li stood up. "I'll get it. You guys stay here. I don't want you freaking anyone out," she said, noticing the pilot's weapons. She returned a few minutes later. "You guys have got to find a place to stay, now."

"Why?" Duo questioned.

Li sighed as if she were expecting this and placed five 'wanted' posters and a business card on the living room table.

"Hey! It's me!" Duo exclaimed, pointing at the poster with his picture on it. " They got my bad side though."

Wufei wacked Duo in the back of the head. "They want us to look bad, baka."

"But. why?"

Another wack on the head from Wufei. "Because they're wanted posters you baka!"

"Oh." Duo replied.

"Oh dear." Quatre mumbled, beginning to read his aloud. " 'Quatre Rebaraba Winner is a dangerous person whom will stop at nothing to seek revenge.' Oh no, that doesn't sound at all like me!"

The other pilots, hearing Quatre read his poster aloud, picked up theirs out of curiosity.

"What?!" Wufei yelled.

"This is supposed to be me?" Duo questioned.

Heero glared at the poster.

".Not true," Trowa muttered.

"Oh wait!" Li interrupted. "That's not the best part! Look who's putting up the posters!" She smirked and shoved the business card under the pilot's noses.

Their eyes widened.

"What?! No! I killed him! That's not possible!" Wufei yelled, staring at the card with a shocked expression on his face.

"Well it could be possible that someone's using his name." Trowa said, monotone, as usual.

"Well," Duo started, "this just adds to our list of problems."
