Hero School - first chapter
Shastasnow | Published 47 days ago
  



Heroes are not always heroic at the start and it is not easy to think of others before yourself. It is only human to only think of yours self. Journeys are quick and easy for some but hard for others but every path is different. Can Fate really determine your path in life?

 

Principal Yale: Okay everyone! Pipe down! I know this is an odd announcement to make during your lunch period but I have to make it eventually.

Elise: Okay get on with it Yale! We donít have all day. *Everyone cheers for me and then quiets down on my command. *

Principal Yale: *Elise is probably the most obnoxious stuck up brat in the school, but what ever she says goes, especially with her father being a top hero of all the Worldís Heroís. He is also one of the top supporters for this school. Though he scolds her for being so controlling but he does not punish his daughter. That is understandable no one should punish their child. That is a fear based approach, though I feel that Elise needs to be taught a lesson or something. I take a deep breath and continue once it is quiet again. * There is a new student joining us this year and she has just moved here to New Lark Town. She is a mute so pleases do try and understand if she does not answer you. She has no other family of her own so the school has decided to take her in. Now please give a warm welcome to Lana Byrne! *The small quite albino girl steps out shyly from behind me. Sometimes I wonder what this girl has seen besides the brutal murder of her parents. She then proudly felt helpless and upset that her powers did not come to her sooner so she could have protected them. Then she traveled alone across the country from school to school trying to learn more about who she is or more importantly where her home is, such a journey only to make it to this school. The girl is wearing her school uniform with her hair pulled back into a ponytail like she should. She gives a sweet smile and waves to everyone. Some kids wave back but they get scolded by Elise. I frown at this and usher the girl to the lunch line. * Okay now for this interruption I will extend your lunch by ten minuets. *Elise grins at this along with everyone else. Well this is my cue to leave. Lana will do just fine, I hope. *

Elise: *I stare down Principal Yale until she makes her exit out of the cafeteria. Then I turn my attention to the new girl who slowly sits down at the far end of my table. What was her name again? Lana? Yeah thatís it. Personally I like sitting alone when I eat. That girl has some nerves to think she can sit at my table or maybe she is just stupid. I will admit she is very different but beautiful looking. Her glasses are a bit dorky looking but her eyes are very light blue, and it makes it hard to look away from them. I shake my head and then stand up. All eyes turn to me as expected. I strut over to the new girl then I give her the nastiest look I could possibly give her. * Why the hell are you at this table? Are stupid or something? *She just shakes her head no and I feel livid. Carefully I pull off her glasses and toss them across the cafeteria floor. Her expression is that of a look of hurt and a stunned mix, just the way I like it. Gently I grab her silky white hair and then swiftly push her head into her hot plate of food. What surprises me is that she doesnít fight back. I let go of her after a few seconds. People ooh and stiffen up from my assault but none stand up to tell me to stop, as they should. Lana weekly pulls her head up and it is cover in mash potatoes. She gently wipes her face clean then stands up. The girl is about a head shorter than me, fairly short. She then angrily waves her arms about and moves her lips about, but then stops in defeat when no sound comes out. Her face is beat red then she quickly runs out of the cafeteria and stops to pick up her glasses on the way out. It is better for her to not even be here at all. Principal Yale is a moron to think a girl like that can make this cruddy school her home. That girl should just move along. She is probably crying in the bathroom like an infant. I roll my eyes at the thought. *

Nick: Elise, come on donít you think that was a bit harsh? She is a new student for crying out loud. She doesnít know your rules.

Elise: Shut it Nick! *I punch Nick in the arm making him groan. I roll my eyes to him and follow the retreating girl. Lana retreats into a bathroom and I hesitate. I take a deep breath then open the door to find Lana washing her hair and face. Well she is not crying, that makes what I am about to say easier. * I guess I should apologize. I should have set my ground rules first Lana. *The girl dries her face then looks over to me with a sad frown. * Rule one, I rule this whole school and no one ever argues with me! Rule two, what ever I say goes and no buts! Rule three, no one is allowed to sit with me while I am eating! Rule four, noting is my fault! Rule five, other rules donít affect me like rules of the school. Rule six, everyone is forbidden to touch me! Rule seven never look down at me. Now if you are to break my rules I will sue you or I could just kick your pretty little a** to the moon. Nod your head if you hear me. *Lana does not do anything for a moment then she slowly nodes her head then leaves the bathroom with me trailing behind her back to the cafeteria. Lana sits next to Nick and does not look at me for the rest of the time. Good! By the end of lunch I find myself not able to finish my lunch for some reason. I guess I lost my appetite or maybe it is the lunch tray still sitting at the end of the table. A constant reminder of the new girl and sometimes it gets me staring at her for long periods of time. I watch as other students talk at her and she would occasionally nod along. Despite Nick already having a girlfriend, he appears to have a thing for her and it confuses me. Slowly and hesitantly I get up then I walk up behind Lana. Gently I rest my hands on her shoulders causing her to stiffen up and nervously look up to me. * Nick.

Nick: What is it Elise if you donít mind me asking? Oh yeah, is thatís against the rules too? You know you canít do anything to me. I am as poor as horse s*** and I have been sent to the moon countless times. You really donít have a position of authority over me here and pleases keep Lana out of this! She really seems like a sweet girl even if she canít speak her mind.

Elise: It seems to me that you Nick have feelings for Lana. Are those feelings true or false? *He gives me a shaky stare and that is all I need to know. * If this is true you are going out of line here. You already have a girlfriend or have you already forgotten her? *I look over to his girlfriend. Her name is Rebecca and she very sweet brunette who I would hate to see heartbroken. I see the shocked look in her face and I frown. *

Nick: No! I donít have ďfeelingsĒ for the new girl Elise. Rebecca is the only girl for me. Let it go already.

Elise: *I notice Nick blow a kiss to Rebecca and she giggles in joy like a girl. He tosses out the rest of his lunch with Rebecca on his heels. Good. I feel Lana relax under my hands and I smile. * Good to hear. If you dare talk to Lana again with out Rebecca in your arms I will seriously send you permanently to the moon. Got it!

Nick: I got it you control freak! *Frowns*

Elise: *I roll my eyes to him. * I have my reasons Nick!

Nick: Oh really? Remember you canít just control people even your own father says itís wrong! You canít control me like the others Elise!

Elise: Ah but I already have! My father is not here and he has nothing to do with this. Leave him out of it. Remember the rules Nick! *I use my mental powers on Nick to force him to obey and move along. * Lana this means you need to move yet again and this time take your food tray with you! *Lana quickly stands up and almost bumps into me making me lose my balance slightly. She then grabs her plate and tosses it into the trash. She then grabs a peace of paper from her coat pocket. Then she leaves the cafeteria completely. I toss my lunch as well and head off to class. I know controlling people is wrong but it is so much fun! You get what you want with little painful drama in the long run. This class is my favorite of them all. It is my exhibition class where I get to put my skills to actual work. As I walk in I notice that Lana is in this class. That means she passed her exams with flying colors. She must have a mighty talent if she was able to get in the special exhibition class. Lana takes off her school coat and puts it into her class locker. I do the same and make my way to my spot on the bleacher. The class is actually not that big probably due to how difficult it is to get in. There are only eleven of us well now there are twelve. Everyone piles onto the bleachers and we wait for the teacher. After about two minuets Professor Dole enters. She has a large chart in her hands and her eyes are glued to it. This gives me no leverage over her unfortunately. As soon as she looks up all would be lost for her and she knows that. *

Professor Dole: Okay class. Good news. Looks like we have twelve students now. That means we can finally do pairings. You will each be paired with your life partner today. Your life partner has already been chosen according to skill level, of course. I will read off the names and you will come up and collect your hero watch. Understood?

Elise: *Everyone looks around nervously. I actually feel nervous myself. I sure hope I donít get pared with Nick of all people. He is probably the only one who would possibly stand a chance against me. The idea of a life partner seems drastic to me but it is common. My fatherís life partner happened to be my mother. I cross my fingers and hope for the best. *

Professor Dole: First off we have Tommy and David. *The two boys stand up and I actually see relief on their faces. They grab their watches that are custom made just for them. Then they sit back down while everyone claps. * Now Finn and Rose.

Finn and Rose: * The two look to each other in shock and slight disgust. *

Professor Dole: Now you may not like each other at first but eventually you will have to learn to work with each other in order to pass this class. Or better yet graduate. That is a challenge you both will have to face together. *Everyone claps and they both quickly snatch their watches and make their way to their seats trying to sit far apart from each other.    

Drake and Cole. *The two boys high five each other then collect their watches. They hoot and holler while everyone claps. *

Nick and Rebecca. *Everyone cheers and claps. The two happily get up and they hold hands as they grab their watches.*

Elise: *Oh thank goodness those two are together. The only problem is I have no idea who could possible be matched with me. The more I look around the more displeased I get. *

Professor Dole: Jacky and Ellen. *The two grab their watches and they look a bit disappointed. Everyone cheers though. *

Elise: *That Ellen, her name annoys me sometimes. Mainly because people sometimes get us confused. We look nothing alike! She is pretty and I am attractive. Very different. *

Professor Dole: And finally we conclude with Elise and Lana. *Most of the students look confused but they still cheer and clap loudly. Mainly if they didnít Elise would ring their necks. But according to the charts Lana is a close match with Elise. The Charts donít lie. Lana is a very powerful girl and I am nervous if Elise will drag her down. *

Elise: *I stand up and Lana hesitantly stands up as well. We both collect our watches that are costumed made. Lanaís watch is white and blue while mine is red and gold. The gold looks actually like real gold. What makes these watches special is that they can never be destroyed or hacked, and they can never come off once they are put on. The two watches also can communicate with each other no matter the distance. That is as much as I know about them. Lana puts hers on and I do the same. This should be interesting. I wonder why the Charts would put us together. I mean the Charts are an actual group of old spiritual people that connect heroes together. They are hardly ever wrong on who they pair people with. But why am I paired with the new girl of all people? She must be powerful or something. * Looks like we are a team Lana. This should be interesting. *Lana looks confused but she nods anyway. *

Professor Dole: Okay first order of business is the training course you will do with your new life partner. Both of you will have to cross the finish in order to pass. Not necessarily at the same time but it would be wise to stay close with each other. Because if only one of you crosses you get and automatic zero and you will have to redo it until you get it right. Now lets all go to the west hall to the training course.

Elise: Harsh. Well Lana you better not slow me down! Elise does not get Fís or zeros and that is against the rules. Now lets go! *Lana nods her head and frowns. We make our way to the training course and we look at it in awe. *

Rebecca: Itís so beautiful and scary at the same! Is it possible to die on this course?

Elise: No duh, you idiot. Look you can die pretty much doing anything Rebecca. I mean come on! *Rebecca rolls her eyes and hides behind Nick before I could slap her. * Whatever you cowered!

Professor Dole: Pipe down Elise. This is a serious training course child. Yes chances of dying are high! The big leagues use this all the time. Sometime they canít make it through without some serious injury.      

Cole: Then why are we being sent through it? We should at least get a map or something to help us. I donít want to die!

Professor Dole: In real life you donít always get maps when fighting crime! This is a hard test and I will not be handing out tip sheets understood? Now get to your places at the starting line with your partner! *I point to the start line. All the students line up quickly and nervously. *

Elise: *I take a deep breath and start to stretch my legs. Lana stretches her arms and back. I make sure to keep myself relaxed and loose because I know that if I did get injured being relaxed would help. With a yawn I look to Lana and see her smiling back. She gives me the thumbs up and I gladly return it. I decide to tie my hair up in a bun just so it wonít get caught onto anything. I help Lana do the same. *

Professor Dole: Very nice Elise. This is a perfect example of how to go about preparing for any training course. Now all of you will be going through at the same time. Separator walls will block you off from each other so you canít cheat. I will be sending you through courses that will challenge you and some will be harder than others depending on your skill level. You will not be timed so no need to rush through things. When I fire the gun that means go. Understood. *All the students nod and I ready the gun and fire it. *

Elise: *I move forward down the track as quickly as I can and I see Lana right there beside me. I grin and she smiles back. The first obstacle looks complicated but I watch as Lana skillfully makes her around it with such speed she even destroyers one of the obstacles with just a mere punch. Then she stops in the middle of it and waves to me. She gives me the thumbs up and I nod back to her. She showed me where to go and even took out one of the obstacle that was set out to hurt me. It might have been successful. I use my super speed to make it through to Lana. Then we hear a loud scream and I can only guess what that means. Then a big screen slides down in front of us and shows what happened. Finn takes a major hit to the head and is knocked out immediately. I cringe from the site and I watch Rose running to his side to drag his limp body out of further danger. Then the screen flashes the words ELIMINATED in all red caps. I feel myself gasping from the site. Then Lana grabs the screen and pulls out some incredibly long wires then quickly grabs a spike from one of the traps. Then connects them together quickly. This girl works almost like a computer in is fascinating to watch. She then hand the thing to me. The screen ascends out of our way and I notice where we are at. A massive possibly bottomless pit is there. Over on the other side is more of the track. Lana then gently places a hand on my sleeve and gives it a light tug. I look to her and watch her making arm movements. I just know she is trying to tell me something. She is pointing at the wall and repeats a certain arm motion at the spot in the wall. Then I get it. I carefully take the spike in my hand and use my super strength to toss it at that spot. I make sure to keep hold of the wire though. Swiftly I swing my way to the other side safely though it is a bit of a jump down. Then I hear a loud yell. I then notice that I never tossed the rope back to Lana. She just stands there on the other side with her arms crossed looking a bit annoyed and startled. A new screen comes down and it shows David plummeting to his doom. I look in horror when the words ELIMINATED flash. Then the screen pulls away and I notice the worried look on Lanaís face. * Just shake it off Lana! We can do this! There has got to be another way to cross! *I shout this as loudly as I can. She nodes her head then wipes her eyes. Then she walks over to the wall and puts her foot on to the wall. I look to her with a confused look. She then completely defies gravity and walks onto the wall. Lana simply walks over by walking on the wall. She occasionally looks nervously down the wall into the pit of doom causing her to go a little uneasy in her steps. * Lana! Itís okay just look over to me. Donít you dare look down! *Lana snaps her eyes over to me then nodes her head. She smiles and runs over to me making my head spin slightly. She then jumps down to me and we then continue on. Then loud screams are heard and I cover my ears from the sound. Lana does the same and she looks to me with worry. The dreaded screen scrolls down and it shows Jacky and Ellen both plummeting to their doom. It appears that they used the spikes from the traps and uses them like ice picks on the wall. But Jackyís hand slips while Ellen tries to grab her but it sends them both falling to their doom. The words ELIMINATED appear causing me to cover my eyes from the seen and then I try to shake it off. Lana frowns and she cowers a bit. I gently side hug her. * Itís going to be okay. Lets just get out of here. Okay? *Lana sadly nods her head and we decide to keep moving. The next part of the course is very maze like. Because I find myself running into an all white wall and Lana quickly stops me by grabbing my arm before I go face first into a wall of spikes. * Lana what did I say about touching me! But thank you! You saved me from becoming Swiss cheese. You know what, I came up with a better idea. Why donít you walk onto the wall and look down on the maze to find where I should go? Then you can just lead me through it. I know you canít talk so you can make some kind of noise. Two sounds mean yes and one sound means no okay? *Lana nods her head and claps her hands loudly with a smile. She then runs up on to the large wall and quickly maps out the maze in her mind. * Do I go right? *Lana claps her hands twice so I turn right and head down a long hallway with many doors. I stand in front of the doors as I ask yes or no? She would answer no for most of the time until I come to one door and she finally answers yes. I open it and it is an annoying colored hallway. It almost hurts my eyes when looking at it. I ignore it and keep walking forward until I come to a four-way junction. I step in front of each until Lana answers yes. I rundown the hallway until I stop at a door when I go to open it I hear a loud reputation of claps. With confusion I stop. * What is it? Is there something behind this door that I should be careful of? *Lana response with a yes. I nod and slowly I open the door to find and small bottomless trench. If I had just rushed through the door I would have probably fallen into it. I simply jump over it. * Is it okay now? *Lana answers yes. I steadily keep moving down the path and I come to a river oddly. I notice piranhas swimming down below and I gulp a bit. * How do I get across? *Lana does not respond. I look around and notice a small walkway that goes along the parameter. I notice one goes left and the other goes right. * Do I go right? *Lana answers yes. I slowly shimmy my way on the small walk way. It is probably no bigger than a foot. Then a screen scrolls down and it shows Drake trying to dumbly jump across the black pit of doom only to fall to his doom. I slap my forehead in confusion and the slight humor to it as the words ELIMINATED appears. I decide to just continue on. The walk way goes on for quite sometime until I notice a small bridge. * Lana! Do I take the bridge? *Lana answers no so I continue until I come across another bridge. Before I can ask Lana answers yes so I take it and continue down the path. Then I see the way out of the maze and I squeal with excitement. Lana walks over to me and we both jump up and down with glee. Even better I notice the finish line! We both dash to it and we both jump up and down with excitement. Then a screen scrolls down then it shows both Kevin and Rebecca falling to their doom when they tired to use one of the obstacles as a bridge so they could walk across, but the obstacle broke when they were about half way through causing them to scream as they fall. I watch in shock as they fall and the words ELIMINATED appear. Lana tears up and I feel the same sadness. *

Professor Dole: No one was supposed to pass this course on his or her first try yet you two somehow made it.

Elise: What? *I look to the Professor with confusion and I wipe my eyes. * So you are saying we were all supposed to die?

Professor Dole: No. No one died. The bottom of the pit is just a giant cushion. They are all fine but they all failed and they will have to try again until they pass.

Elise: Oh thank goodness! *Lana looks up with relief on her face as she wipes her eyes. *

Professor Dole: Finn will be fine too. He just got a concussion but he should pull through. You two on the other hand have impressed me and have passed the course. The world needs heroes like you out in the world. Though I canít have you graduate yet so I will have you do a few more assignments.

Elise: Really! We passed! This is awesome! What other assignments do we have to do?

Professor Dole: A twelve page paper on your process of the course with you partner, a simulation assignment and then you will then be assigned your villains. You two are just kids still so you wont just be allowed to just leave the school. Not until youíre peers pass this test.

Elise: That is not fair. Why should we be held back because of them? *I take a deep breath. Lana frowns at me and I snarl at her in return. *

Professor Dole: Sorry but yes. That means I expect high quality papers for the both of you. I will meet you here tomorrow for the simulation assignment. Your other classmates will attempt again tomorrow with the same course. This time I will provide them a map. So they should be able to get through it this time.  

Elise: Dole. You know it is respectful to look in peopleís eyes when talking right?

Professor Dole: HAHA With you. Never. I know your powers Elise. You are just going to make it so I donít assign you the paper. Do you really think that is going to work on me again? *This is a nasty girl. She could make me brain dead in a heartbeat. *

Elise: I would never use my powers like that. You say that like I would actually use my powers to my advantage. I am not a villain, I would not do that I am a hero and that is what this stupid school is supposed to teach me. Teachers and students fear me here, well they should but still. Not the best environment for heroes. If you expect me to do what you say then stand up to me or I could just walk all over you. Honestly I think you need to relook how you work here.

Professor Dole: Elise you are just one of those students that are a challenge for everyone here. We are not responsible on what decision you make. You have used your powers on others before and I have personally been a victim myself. What you have done to this great school is not okay Elise. This school is home for some people and when you make home a fearful place it is not good for anyone. When we do try to punish you, you find a way out of it every time. You fight and you are controlling. I would say you have a very nasty and vileness behavior. Even I thought that you would be a great student to have and looks like I miss judged you. You are not to be trusted. Lana you better be carful around this girl even if she is your life partner. I apologies that you had to end up with her but the Charts donít lie when they pair people, maybe somehow you can help steer Elise in a brighter and better direction than any of the teachers here could.

Elise: *I smile and pat Professor Dole on the shoulder. * Very brilliant Miss Dole. You speak from your heart and I admire that. Though that is probably why you arenít married by now. Now I have a crummy paper to write. I will see you tomorrow then. Lana lets get out of this mad house. Seeing my friends fall to what I thought was there death was enough drama but to add the day-to-day teacher drama is just too much for me. *Lana nods her head and frowns. *  

Professor Dole: I will call up your father and see how he thinks of your disrespectful behavior.

Elise: You were disrespectful to me first for not looking me in the eyes. Go ahead. I doubt he will even pick up. If he did then it is probably to say he is disappointed to hear the news. He will be even more disappointed in me then he will go about his day as if it all never happened. He will also probably stop recommending this school and cut his donations. Then the school will fire you. In the long run I will win and I donít loose anything that I may have already lost. It has all happened before. You little threat does not bug me at all. *The professor clenches her fists and points to the door for me to leave. I make my exit with Lana following behind. We make our way and she follows me to my dorm. * Why are you following me? I need some alone time right now. Find somewhere else to do your paper please I donít want you to look bad and then make me look bad. Canít have that. When you are done with you paper bring it back to me and we can peer review them. *Lana shrugs her shoulders walks away. Good I just want to get this paper over with. This school does not understand why I do the things I do. Controlling makes things organized and right. If people follow my rules no one would get hurt, it is not my fault I am more dominate than the others. I actually put some effort into this paper because honestly working with Lana was not half bad. She is a skilled hero and I feel that there is much to learn from her. I finish the paper and I am happy with it. Then I hear a nock on my door. * Who is it? *I donít hear anything so I look through the peephole. Lana is on the other side. OhÖ I open the door. * ďDid you come back because you finished your paper?Ē *Lana nods her head and I hold out my hand for her paper. She hands it to me and I hand her mine along with a red pen. I read hers and I find it completely flawless. Incredible she is an amazing writer. I smile to her and hand her paper back. She hands mine back and there are only a few red scribbles. She smiles and then she sits down on the empty bed in my room. I read her comments. One says that I over exaggerated or some of it was made up. * I was trying to make it a bit more interesting than writing all the scary parts. *Lana nods her head then she writes something down on a peace of paper. *It says, ďI understand but you really should keep it realĒ.  Fine. *I rewrite the paper and hand it to her. She reads it and hands it back to me with no read marks making me smile. * Okay lets go to have some dinner. *Lana gets up and we make our way to the cafeteria. Most kids go to there real homes for dinner but I know that I am enough of a disappointment to go eat dinner with my parents. They told me that I lost my privilege and they are never really around to care anyway. They told me that I am noting until I prove myself to them. I am there kid not my fault for being born they even told me I was an accident. They never wanted to have kids but they wanted to adopt. My mother blames me for her poor figure. She is honestly not that bad looking, old but not ugly. * Parents are over rated and such a bore. *Then I realized I spoke allowed and Lana gives me a frown as she grabs her food. I grab myself a plate and sit at my table. Lana looks like she wants to sit with me she even stands by the table just looming over the many empty seats. *     

Nick: Hey, Lana you should sit with us. If you sit with Elise she will rip you in half and honestly that would not be pretty. Donít worry Elise; Rebecca is here and there is no need to worry about people sitting with you. I got your back because that is what friends do right?

Elise: I am not in the mood for your consideration and Lana can sit with her life partner if she likes. New rules for her, I mean as long and she does not touch my food all is fine. I donít really care, she would probably have more fun at your table but it is really up to her so leave me out of it Nick.

Nick: Life partner, yeah right. I bet you will try to get rid of her and force someone to get you a new one.

Elise:  *I force Nick to close his mouth and he gives me a frustrated stare. I quickly walk up to him and pick him up by his tie. * Enjoy the moon! *I go to hurl him into the moon, but Lana waves her hands to get my attention. I sigh and toss him into the trash instead. * Never mind this is far better.

Nick: Trash does not bug me. I have gone through worse with my parents. Your nothing but a bully Elise and you always will be one. Or what the Professor Dole says. You would do better at a school for villains.

Elise: *I feel my blood boil but I just make my way to my seat and Lana sits down with me. She looks sad and she just pokes at her food. * Lana you donít have to sit with me. I know you are trying to a supportive friend but I donít need friends. Go hang out with people who care. *Lana gets up and she adjusts her skirt and lets her hair down. Then she sits back down and starts eating. She does not eat like other people. She is quiet and neat. She is polite and it makes me smile. Then she pulls out a journal from her backpack and writes something down. She passes the journal to me and I read it. It says, cool, I donít care either honestly. PS youíre a real jerk. You should apologies to Nick. I look at Lana in confusions and then it twists into a smile. * Hey Nick, sorry about that. Just wish you would stop messing with me thatís all.

Nick: What ever. Like you mean it.

Elise: *I roll my eyes and I get up. My apatite has been ruined. I toss my lunch in the trash and I just make my way out. Lana tosses her lunch and runs after me. She writes something in her journal. It says, why are you skipping lunch? Are we going to your familiesí house? We canít just skip food. I understand if you donít want to eat in the cafeteria but still. I look to Lana and I rub my temples. * Why not. Let go to my parents for the weekend. Pack what you need. We are going in ten minuets. *Lana smiles and she runs off. Reluctantly I follow her. We make our way to the basement of the school. Those who live for free at the school live in the basement. It only makes sense. Lana is a powerful hero and she should not have to live in this mess of a place that has a horde of teachers living there. I pass by many unhappy faces making shiver in uneasiness. I have brought many of these teachers to their knees with the help of my powers. Though with out them I would not have made it as far as I have. Lana is in a room crammed with very interesting people that I donít really know that entire well. Many of them whisper crap about me to others making me irritated. Does not take super sonic hearing to hear that. Lana grabs a small bag and a toothbrush. She then smiles to me. * That is all you have. Well okay let get going. *I use my powers to make a portal to my house. I can only make portals of places I have seen and sometimes I can be a bit off so I donít risk it in challenges. I grab Lana and pull her with me through the portal. We make our way and I find that we made it all the way up a really tall mountain. I groan and I try again until after the third try I make it to the front of my house. Finally. I ring the doorbell and the door opens almost immediately.  

Father: Get in you brat. Oh and house guest. *I did not notice there was another person. I hit my hand against my forehead and sigh. * Sorry do come it. *Elise gives me a grimace and a shake of her head then enters with her head held high. *

Elise: *I lead Lana through the house or castle or what ever to show her around. My father lingers around and he is quiet for most of the time. * Now you must be hungry so lets have and early dinner.

Father: Sure, sure lets eat. Your mother is cooking right now so please take your seat.

Elise: *We sit down and Lana smiles a big smile. * Wipe that goofy smile off your face. It is a real attention grabber. *Lana frowns and puts on a lamer smile instead making me groan. * Better, I guess.

Father: Unbelievable Elise, donít be rude. Lana you are free to smile how you please.

Elise: Dad I am not in the mood to not be rude.

Father: When are you ever? When do you think about how others feel and not think it is all about you? Elise your teacher Miss Dole called and she was most offended by your actions today. Though she did say that you have a life partner and you were the only one in your class to accomplish the training course, very good to hear, who is your life partner? Better be a boy. It will make marriage much quicker for you.

Elise: I will apologies to Professor Dole but she was asking for it. She told me that I would make a better villain than a hero can you believe that! It was hurtful and she would not give me eye contact. Completely outrageous who does Miss Dole think she is?

Father: Yes you will send her an apology and that is final.

Mother: Dinner is ready. *I say in a singsong voice to lighten the mood. * Now please behave you two, we have a guest. What is your name sweaty?

Elise: *Lana makes some hand gestures that confuse me and I realize she is trying to answer. I can understand some of the hand jesters, probably from learning it in some class a while ago. * This is Lana, she is a mute, but I think she is saying, Hi, I am Lana Byrne. It is nice, no, a pleasure to meet you. *Lana grins at me and nods her head, at what I translated was correct.

Mother: Oh how sweat is that. I new that class would be worth it and you told me it was a waist of time.

Elise: It was, I practically ran that class because the teacher was hardly ever there. Now Dad, Lana is my life partner and the Carts said that we are a perfect pair.

Father: The Carts never lie, but still a boy would have been preferred not some albino girl that canít even speak. I donít like her, she reminds me of an ice villain back in the day that almost killed me.

Mother: She is a bit strange. Maybe there was a mistake.

Elise: *I look to my parents in disbelief. Lana does not look all too happy anymore making me mad inside. Then she stands up and starts singing angrily. * She says; I am offended. My mother was an ice villain by the name of Rime. She used to be a hero until The Wrong Shade turned her evil. She was still good though. She was doing it to protect me from The Wrong Shade who threatened to kill me if my mother did not work for her. In the long run my mother and my father were both murdered by that villain right before my eyes. She then attacked me when I was vulnerable and I lost my voice, but I was able to just then use my powers and I sent her to another dimension. You big time heroes did not even care what happened to my mother and father. I was only six. Did I get that right Lana? *Wow what a story. Her mother was the great Rime. That lady was one of my idols when I was a kid. * Are you okay Lana? *Lana sighs and sits back down. * Dad I sometimes hit under the belt but to saying that to a house guest it just cold.

Father: The Wrong Shade killed Rime. That is terrible. Why did we not hear of this? Sure your mother went evil but I would never wish that on anyone. Sorry that happened to you Lana and if I offended you. If you ever need a place to stay our doors are open to you. Though I still wish you were a boy though. I mean Elise needs to get married sometime.

Elise: Dad. I donít want to get married yet. I have a ways till I find that special someone. My next step in life is to find out who my villain is and then find someone who I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Father: I wonít approve until that happens. Now please lets enjoy the food.   

Elise: *Dinner is not all that great but it is nice finally get something in my stomach. Lana politely eats her meal but my parents on the other hand eat like pigs. * Mother and Father will you two please eat with your mouths closed? It is disgusting! *As I say this I get up and make my way outside with Lana at my heels. I make a portal and we enter it together. It takes me right back to the school. Thank goodness. * I am sorry about that Lana but they are the only parents I have. They are good people but they just do bad things in their ignorance. I hope you understand. Now you are going to live with me in my room from now on. A girl as powerful as you should not have to live with a bunch of nosy teachers. *Lana then scribbles something down in her journal and passes it to me. Are you sure? I donít want to be a bother to you or anything. * It is all good Lana. As long as you donít touch my s**t all is good. *She writes something again and passes it to me. Okay. I smile and open my door for her. She enters probably feeling amazed by how big the room is. * See us girlís stick together no matter what. I will be there for you if you are there for me. That is what I look for in you as my life partner. Got it! *Lana nods her head and she jots something down. It says, ďItís okay Elise. I would like it no other way. If you are here for me I will be there for you. Though I will try and be there always. Glad that we are friends. Now I am tired.Ē *I nod my head and I find myself yawing. ďSounds like a good idea to me. Sorry again about my stupid parents, they get almost as controlling as I am.Ē Lana shrugs her shoulders and we then head off to sleep.
