Hi everyone! This is my new fan-fic One Person,One Hope,One Chance. Or you can call it OP,OH,OC. Enjoy!
|~| Chapter 1 |~|
"Sami..." I was fast asleep when someone poked me."SAMI!"
I opened my eyes to see Yumi on the edge of my bed poking my foot.I sat up and rubbed the sleep out of my eyes."Yumi... what?"
"Fuyu said that breakfast is ready." Yumi was already dressed in leggings,red skirt and a sweater with boots. Yumis always gets up at the crack of dawn to get dressed for school. Then leaves me to be done be the skin of my teeth! Metaphor.
Yumi was my best friend and she lived with my mom and I in our mini-mansion. Yumi's parents died when we were eight. They went to work that morning and never came back... No ones nkwo why or how... Yumi just liked to think they were deceased. Unfortunaly,she had to go to an orphange. Mom and I just couldn't let Yumi go. So we adopted her and she's lived with us ever since.
"Ok,I'm coming."I climbed out of bed and greeted the picture of my deceased dad on my night-stand. "Good morning,dad." I whispered to the picture. My father died a year after Yumi's parents. He was in a satomobile accident. The money dad left behind was a large sum.. So mom bought the mini-mansion with the money. We didn't live so great,just like most of the people now-a-days. Our mansion isn't even a really a HUGE mansion you're thinking of. It's just a big two-story house with a pool and we have a maid/chef named Fuyu. She's really nice!
Unforunaly,most people live in bad neighborhoods,which is like everywhere! Some live on the streets. It all turned that way after Avatar Korra passed away 40 years ago at age 22. You see when Korra got her bending taken by Amon she fell into a deep sadness. She eventually got very sick and passed. Then the new avatar was born.. And you think the world should be fine and dandy right? Well the avatar's a little... out there.
"What should I wear for school,Yumi?"I asked holding up a floral sundress.
Yumi payed hardly any attention to me,instead she was a metalbending my bobby pin."Well,not too fancy!"
"I know. It's not that fancy...right?"
"Just my thought..."My bobby pin was now a ball of metal. Yumi was a little boyish and I was more girlish,but still... don't mess with me...
"Is that for self-defense?"
"Maybe.."She eyed me and laughed. Yumi always had the playful,fun attiude. I was a bit more serouis and a face-the-facts kinda gal.
I slipped the dress on and brushed my hair. Then Yumi and I headed down stairs.
"Hi mom!"I chriped. I ran over to the seat at the kitchen table were she was sitting and hugged her.
"Hi,Samiki! Hello girls! Ready for another day?"Mom set down her coffee. "Grab some waffles you might be late for school today." She had the radio on with her favorite music blarring.
Yumi went over and handed me a waffle,I took and a bite and said,"It's... It's a good thing... Umm, this is good! That school's almost over! Only a month left!"
"Samiki chew with your mouth closed."Mom told me with a sip of coffee.
"Yes,mom."I swallowed,sometimes we don't have manners,either.
Fuyu brought us lichee juice. A tradetional Air Nomad drink!"Sit girls,the bus will be here soon."Fuyu brought over more food and drinks. Yumi and I feasted on waffles,fruit and lichee juice.
"Wanna have a chugging contest?!"Yumi challenged.
"Let's do this!"Yumi and I chugged the lichee juice.
"HAHA!"We laughed arm over each other's shoulders.
"Girls!"Mom shouted."Manners,please!"Even mom chuckled a bit.
The rock music turned to static then a throat was cleared. Then his voice boomed on the radio. "Hello,people of Republic City. Your avatar is speaking. I am recruting more people for my anti-non-bending group,The Move to a Bending World,or TMBW.Everyone but the non-benders are welcome to join. I am getting ready for something big! So non-benders watch your backs,because everything will get worse!"
That's what I mean by the avatar's a little... out there!
This was the day my life changed forever.... That's when I met...him...
I hope you liked it! I'll have the next chapter out soon!
The air reeked of car exhaust as it whipped in my face billowing my hair. We rode silently in the jeep for awhile; Shiori gripping the wheel and me, fingering my dress with sweaty hands.
Until, I finally broke the silence."So! Where are we goin' first!"I chirped smiling sweetly. Trying not act too irritable.
He glanced over at me and I saw a glimpse of sweat lining his forehead. How nervous was he?!"Uh... W-Well,I was planning on taking you to Shì Kàn Zhòng. But if you would rather go some where else that's fine, too!" His glistening eyes widened in frantic.
I placed a hand on his arm. It was rippling with hard muscles. I blushed and jerked my hand away. I noticed his face was red, too."I love Shì Kàn Zhòng! Let's go there."
He nodded and turned right; heading down a narrow road. Cars zipped by treachously. One almost took off the side mirror! I yelled some... things at the man and... well, his response wasn't very nice.
"Gosh! People these days! What's with them?!" I spat sinking back into the chair.
"I know..."Shiori replied, turning the jeep into the parking lot of Shì Kàn Zhòng. He slid out, opened my door for me and held out his hand to help me down.
"Thanks." I smiled at him.
He smiled back nervously. What was with him? He's never been this nervous before around me... "S-So, shall we go in then?"
I gave a curt nod, slid my arm around his waist and leaned against him. That should relax him, I thought. I felt him tense up, but he hesitantly put his arm around me shoulders. Before we made it to the door, he had his cheek pressed against me head. I smiled a little; enjoying the moment.
"What would you like to order?"Our waiter asked. He was dressed in a black dress shirt with a fancy white vest. This whole place was fancy! There were enormous diamond chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. So ominous, yet so beautiful...
I shook my head and answered, "Yes?"
"What would you like to order." His expression, his tone. nothing said irritated. Though, cleary, he was because he kept twirling his fancy black pen between his fingers.
"Samiki,"Shiori hissed, white as a sheet,"Order."
"Oh, er, um, I'll have,"I scanned the very expensive menu,"the dumplings and salmon." Somehow Shiori became more sickly white and the waiter raised an eyebrow at me in dubious way."What?"I demanded, gripping the polished wooden armchairs.
"Oh, nothing! I'll have that out right away." He snatched our menus and scurried away.
I sipped my water and stared at Shiori. He had his head in his hands. Ya know what: I'm not even gonna ask.
"I'll be in the bathroom,"I mumbled and manuvered my way to it.
Pushing open the bathroom door, I heard whispering.
"Of course she's here ,Takuto! I mean Lieutenant Takuto... I'm not back sassing you!" A girl ,about 17 with jet-black wearing a dark blue peplum shirt with a small, thin black belt around the shirt, black jeans and black wedge ankle boots, was fluffing her hair in the mirror and yelling into the phone. Her eyes widened with excitment as I emerged into the bathroom. "I.. I found her! .... Duh! I mean yes, Lieutenant." She hung up the phone with a clank! and whipped around manuvering into a fighting stance.
Oh no! This girl works for Sano! She's here to cap-! A hard, cold blast of water thrust me against the door frame of the bathroom door. My spine throbbed in pain, so I massaged it. I slowly opened my eyes to blurry vision. A dark silhouette loomed over me. It grabbed my arm and yanked me to my feet.
"Get up," it growled. The voice sounded as if it was speaking through pillows. It... no, she pulled me toward... a window. I was regainng my vision. The girl, who was talking with Takuto on the phone, gripped my arm. I threw a punch at her with my free arm and blasted fire at her with my other arm. She released me and flailed around screaming. The funniest part was that she was a waterbender. I laughed at her, but I was merciful.
"Waterbend, genius!" I called between laughs.
She pulled water on herself and flopped on the ground wheezing. I kicked her in the head, which knocked her out, and stored her in stall. I washed my hands and went to the bathroom as quickly as possible and hurried out. Shiori was probably really worried why I wasn't back yet.

I have some very bad news. I can imagine what's going on through your minds right now: OMG!!! NO! SHE'S ENDING THIS FAN-FIC!! No, I'm that cruel and heartless! I love writing this story and One Person! But... My home computer died (I'm having a funeral for it... Not! That would be weird. O.o) so that means I only have access to my Dad's office computer. And I only come their on certain days. :/ Oh poopsticks... So that means that I can only come on the boards when I'm at my dad's office! (Were I am now.) NOOOO!!! So THAT means that I can only write chappies here!! Now, after this very long speech-y thing, I am going to work on chappies. Bye! ;)
Note: This is the same message as the one in Meet Me Halfway.
Sorry about the wait! I've been super busy with my AWESOMELY-AWESOME dance team and dance lessons! Do not worry, I still love you guys and I still love to write. I have not abandoned you! Please enjoy this filler and do not make fun of it... c:
"Here try this."Yumi handed over a shimmering sea green dress.
"Erm, it kinda looks like shiny barf..."I turned red and picked my nails. Shiori was waiting for me in the family room and Fuyu was probably lecturing him about respecting me or some junk... Meanwhile, I was stuck in my musty bedroom arguing with Yumi about which dress I should wear.
She stuck her nose in the air and snapped, "Fine, I think it looks pretty." She rummaged through my mother?s dresses and squealed. "Look at this beauty!" She was holding a pink puffy dress with a high waist that came up to my ribs. "Try it on!" She chucked the dress at me and I failed to catch it. Picking it up from my carpet, I slipped it on and admired myself in the mirror.
Yumi's eyes lit up." Perfect! Now, time for hair!" She shoved me into the bathroom and curled my hair in ringlets. They fell on my shoulders, gracefully. Then she applied mascara, blush, lipstick and light pink eye shadow that matched the color of my dress.
Yumi led me to the stairs where Shirori was waiting. His back was to me and he laughing about something Fuyu said. Fuyu spotted me and her eyes became teary, warm and soft. She nodded towards me and Shirori slowly turned around.
Shiori expression changed instantly. He gazed at my smiling and looking as hot as 100 degrees ;his jaw hung open and I swear a dozen flies could live in it." Whoa," he marveled his voice incredibly soft," you look stunning!" He held out a hand for me to help me down the stairs.
I blushed and replied," Thanks, same to you." And he really did. His hair was as it always was, shaggy, though he was wearing a blazer and dark jeans. His face looked as if an angel carved it. His adorable dimples made my heart melt.
"Ready to go, Sami?" He asked.
"Sure!" I replied and stepped down steps to be leave--or almost leave, I'm way shorter than him-- with him.
Yumi zipped downstairs and yelped," Wait! ..." Everyone went silent and stared at her. "Pictures?"
Fuyu nodded, agreeing, while Yumi beamed and Shiori and I sighed, frustrated. Fuyu soon came back with a camera and snapped our picture. Then we were off.
We headed outside, Shiori opened the passenger door for me and I waved good-bye to Yumi and Fuyu. Fuyu was crying on Yumi shoulder yelling," THEY GROW UP SO FAST!" Yumi just patted her back, awkwardly.
I heard the whir of the jeep's engine and soon we were speeding down the road and out of my neighborhood.
Great chapters! And YAY Shiomiki!! Sorry, I haven't commented in forever!
