"Because of me, Little Sis, you can't have a free life, but I can make it last longer," were some of the last words Saira told me, a few months ago, before she did "it". I am mad at her, but still...
I clutched the keys to my motor-bike in one hand and my deck in the other. My deck...I wish I never learned how to duel.
My mom glanced at me through her car mirror. " You miss her don't you?"she asked me. Looking up, I pictured my big brother and my big sister. Even though I'm the youngest, I am between those two.
"Of course I miss her, Mom. I also miss Kohaku and Dad," I said. The first part wasn't really true. How can I miss someone who is linked to me? Oh wait, nobody knows what happened except me.
"I know, Izuna, but this was your father's and my decision. It's just hard for us since your older sister is gone. And don't worry. They live at the other side of Heartland City; you can visit them whenever you like," Mom assured.
"What about school? You told me about our new house, and your new job, and all that, but what about school?"I mumbled.
"You're going to Heartland Academy. I'm going to pick up your uniform today, later, and they'll be arranging a student to guide you around the building when you start."
Before I could say anything else, Mom stopped the car. I looked out the window and saw a white house with a black roof. This is it. The beginning of my new life.
What a way to kick off on my third day of school: a math test. Equations, equations, equations. I HATE them. More than any other math problems. Why? Because Saira is so good at them! What she likes, I'll hate. When the test was done, I headed off to Duel Period with Tyler. We talked about different clubs I could join. "Soccer?" Tyler asked when I said I wanted to join the team. "Yeah. I've played at my old school and I like it a lot. I want to join again,"I said. "Fine with me, but you'll have to the coach and captain of the team." "That won't be a problem." Suddenly, I bumped into a group of girls from the higher grades. They all glared at me. Though I wanted to roll my eyes, I politely and apologetically said,"I'm so sorry about that. I'll pick up your things." "Uh...hey. You don't have to..."one of them said. I looked up at a girl with long, curly brown hair with blue/purple streaks and eyes to match. She seemed a bit nicer than the other girls, so I smiled, friendly, and told her I don't mind. I picked up all their stuff, then I picked up the last item, a duel disk screen, with the name,"Ginelle,"on the back. "That's mine,"the girl with curly brown hair said. I handed her the disk then walked off with Tyler. "You know, you can be creepy at times,"he blurted. "What do you mean?" "Most of the time, you're-you know-'Tomboy Izu'. Other times, you're so sweet and nice. It's like you're two different persons." "Wrong. That's just how I am,"I lied. They can't know. No one's allowed to know.
"YUMA!!!" I turned around and saw Rei running towards me. "Hey, Rei," I greeted my friend. "Yuma, why are a bunch of boys, looking like they've taken a love potion?" Rei asked. "Oh a new girl came to this school. She lives in my neighborhood. Her name's Izuna,"I told him. "Wow, she must be pretty. I can't wait to meet her!""Yuma, it's not a good idea to have a close friendship with Izuna. I told you that before and your friends shouldn't get involved,"Astral said. I ignored him."Hey, Yuma!" I saw Izuna with Shark, Tara, and Tyler heading our way. "Yuma, Rei, what's up?" Bronk, Tori, Flip, Caswell, and Cat came from the other direction. Izuna asked who Rei is. "Wow! You really are pretty! My name's Rei Shingetsu! I've been absent for a few days, but I can't believe I missed out on so much." Rei shook hands with Izuna, who seemed startled. "You must be Izuna, right?" Izuna clutched her head, dizzly, nodded and tried to keep her balance. A painful look showed on her face. "Hey, how about we duel?" Rei asked.
I shook my head furiously."I forgot my deck, again, sorry. Besides, I'm going to the library." "You're kidding, right," Tara crossed her arms. "No, I'm not," I left and made my way to the library. Since my head is hurting, like being struck by lightning, I couldn't walk straight and bumped into the wall a bunch of times. Once I entered the quiet zone, I took a seat at a computer."Um, excuse me, but somebody already sits here,"said a girl next to me, shyly. She had glasses over her pretty eyes and black hair with fox ears. She even had a fox tail. I got up and sat at the right of the girl. "I'm Luna Miko,"she said, also shyly."Name's Izuna." "I know who you are. All the boys talk to you." "Yeah...it's annoying, don't you agree?" Luna stared at me,"Don't you like the attention?!" "No. The only attention I want is when I become a famous-not to mention the fastest-motor cyclist ever. All this icky love and romance is different. Makes me feel spoiled." "Wow, and at first, I thought you were a snob." I turned and saw Yuki Sukeema, from my class. She's not like the most of the other girls in my classes, so I don't really mind her. She held five books and it took me five minutes to realize what she just said,"Hey!" "You're kind of slow, aren't you?" The voice came from a computer in front of me. I saw another girl. "Hey, aren't you Atsie Kaiba, as in related to Seto Kaiba?" "Oh so you heard of my uncle?" "Who hasn't?" All of a sudden, a sharp pain jolted through my head. I blacked out. When I was able to see, again, those three were huddled up whispering to each other, talking about,"What does she mean,'Protect her?'" and,"Why did her eyes turn purple?" Again?!?! I stormed out of the library and rushed to the infirmary. How many times do I have to suppress this and she still takes over my conscience?!
Geez. I posted a while back but it didn't come on. Oh well, I'll just say it again. I might post more if I have more free time, but I'm pretty much booked for the whole week. But Saturday, I'm pretty much free.
XYuGiOhZX, you should really start picking up the pace. I saw your notebook; it's filled up, but you're not even close to finishing your story in the notebook. This fan-fic could take years unless you post more recently. That's my word of advice.
Animefan13: That's ok I can wait a couple of chapters. Anyways I love the story, it's kind of hard to believe that it's Izuna's second day of school. Hmm I also wonder what Izuna's weakness is. (Now that I read the story) Keep up the great work XYuGiOhZX!
When I got up for school, the next morning, I made sure to go super early, so I can get to class, safely. And I don't know why, but I really feel like bringing my deck. Probably because of my duel with Kyle, on the weekend. Oh well. It doesn't really matter. I stuck on my shoes, then got on my hoverboard. As I got closer to school, I slowed my speed. There were only a few kids outside but as long as there's no crowd, then I guess it's fine. I leaped over the steps, then stopped my board. In an instance, the boys came rushing towards me. "Hi, Izuna!""It's great to see ya!""I told you, guys. She's cute isn't she?""Hey, sre you free today?" This is probably what my morning will be like until I do something. And I will but not yet. I ran into the building and started to get away from my tag-alongs. I picked up even more speed, and to guys started to stop. Thankfully, the hallway I'm in right now is empty except for a few glaring girls. I rushed off to my first class. There was no need for Tyler to tell the directions a second time. I have a sharp memory. He also told me that if I come to school, early, the only kid that will be in my class at that time will be Dylan R. Dylan reminds me of someone, but he's so quiet and independent, so how can I know him? And other than that, Dylan is one of the kids who has zero interests in me! Dylan seemed to look glummer than usual. I don't know why; he never talks to me! He sat in the seat right in front of me. People hardly ever talk to him and the boys love talking to me. I litarally envy him because of that. When I walked passed him to get to my seat he looked up at me as if he were needed to talk to me. I ignored him and sat down, trying to enjoy my boy-free freedom, while it lasted. Then, more kids started to some. All the girls tried to avoid eye contact with me; the boys sighed and stared at me. Except Tyler. He just waved then took his seat. Then Shark came into the room. he glanced at all the kids who were staring/ignoring me and shrugged. He took his seat, next to me and stayed quiet. Suddenly I felt a hand perch on my shoulder. It was Riley. She gave me a look that obviously meant she was upset with me but didn't know what to say. Her mouth was open but then she walked to her seat galring at me. Wow. And this is just my second day of school, yet I have almost every girl in the school turned against me. When lunchtime came, a bunch of boys started to yell at me. "Please take the seat next to mine!""Do you like muffins? If so, you can have all my muffins!"I looked over at Tyler and mouthed the words,"Help me."Tyler stated to work his way through the crwd and told them I was eating with him and pulled me away. "How about we go eat on the roof? Not alot of kids go up there." I said okay and we walked up a bunch of steps which lead to the roof. And it was really hot! I saw very few kids from the higher and lower grades. I also saw Yuma and his friends. Tyler and I walked over to them, while sweat trickled from my forehead. Then, I noticed Bronk's hat. As we ate, I asked Bronk if I can borrow his hat for the entire lunch period."Sure, but I think it's a bit big for you." "Doesn't matter!" I tucked my low-tied pigtails into the hat and placed it on my head. I know why they looked at me, while we ate. In less than three minutes, my lunch was gone. But I'm still hungry. I wish I had a burriito..."Izuna?" I turned and saw Dylan, nervously standing there, wanting to ask me something. "Can you come with me for a moment?" "Sure,"I said,"I guess I can-" A hand went over my mouth and Riley appeared next to me."Sorry, Dylan, but I need to borrow Izuna, today." "Uh, sure,"Dylan left. I heard Riley sigh then whisper to me,"You're not going anywhere near Dylan. He's mine!" I grabbed off her hand and said,"Why should I?And don't you have a thing for Shark, Two-Timer?" I handed Bronk his hat back, then began to walk off, but Riley grabbed me again. "Why do you act so superior? Don't you have a weakness?" I froze when she asked me that. Then, I ran back to the classroom.
Sorry for different reasons. First thing is sorry for not posting Saturday. The other thing is that I was wrong; your characters are a few chapters away. I'm posting so late because I went to see the parade, this morning(I know, I sound like I'm making excuses). But I'm gonna post the next chapter right now. Enjoy.
Animefan13: XYuGiOhZX are you ok?
Grim reaper: We assure you that no one will hunt you done just because you haven't posted in a while.
Animefan13: *Nervously laughs* I hope you get back on your feet.
Grim reaper: We'll be waiting for the next chapter.
~I have the heart of a duelist and you can't take that away from me~
~Anyone want a wet bagel?~
I'M SORRY!!! A THOUSAND TIMES SORRY!
Izuna: Calm down! You're going crazy!
Me: PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR NOT POSTING IN OH-SO LONG!!!JUST PLEASE DON'T GO HUNTING ME DOWN!!!
(knock on door)
Me: AHHHHHHHHH!!!(Jump out the window)
Izuna: I can't believe this! I just knocked on the wall and there, XYuGiOhZX runs off. Oh well. Everyone, please stay very patient.
The next chapter has your OC's in it. But I think one of your characters will be in the chapter after that one. Please stay patient and I am oh-so definitely sorry that I haven't posted for so long. Everybody knows that I'm lazy.
Forgive me, everyone. xXZEXALXx is very, very lazy. If she says yes, I'll post when she doesn't want to. But I don't have much free time which is why I'm hardly on the computer so I'll try to be here and make up for xXZEXALXx's lack of typing.
