Pokémon: Black&White Academy: “New student Arrives!”
In a world much like your own, the everyday people embody the spirit of amazing creators called Pokémon, these creators are long extinct and live on in us. My story begins in the esteemed Black&White Academy, located in the Kanto region, known worldwide for it's amazing battle clubs and sports reputation. The building itself is a large circular structure with several smaller buildings branching off through elevated straightaways. In the main building; class C-33 the day starts normal and chatter is going about the room.
I, a stout Kirlia named Lya, am sitting legs crossed in the 2nd to last desk; on the left side of the classroom. My eyes are transfixed through the window that peers down at the BWAs C-courtyard. Decorative shrubbery and plant life are splayed throughout the area creating little terraces. A dainty circular cobblestone resting spot in the middle. On it are two wooden benches, set up in a parallel fashion that are shaded by some large sycamore trees towering over them. Another feature that the C-courtyard had was that it is adjoined to the school library that sat directly to the right of it. There's only a single figure sitting in the courtyard if you could even call it that, the person was tiny. Shorter than some of the first years, but she would have to be one of the high schoolers because the courtyard was off limits to middle schoolers while their classes were near or in session, and the fact she was pretty busty from the looks of it *jealous stare*. It appeared she had her face dug into a book rather indignantly. You'd think it was apart of her face otherwise, but that's enough of this riff-raff. I noticed I had stared at this person long enough; I was starting to creep myself out. So I decided to focus on what was happening in class instead. I could hear the other students idle gossip as I redirect my attention on to them. Through the chatter of a nearby group of Dugtrio I hear them say,”new student”. This hits me with a certain distaste as it’s been an almost impregnable topic lately. Two days to be exact. I don’t see what all this hype is about; they act as if theres never been a new student here before. I say, mentally bickering with myself. Lost in thought I don’t notice a silhouette snooping up to me. All of a sudden i’m caught off guard by a pair darty eyes popping up from the edge of my desk and a sudden yelp from myself. It was only Riu, a Raichu with shoulder length brunette hair, and a penchant of asking others to join her battle club. She was a regular occurrence when it came to this. She wore a simple orange t-shirt with three, large brown horizontal tiger striplets on both sides and a waist pleat skirt of similar color. Her face was round and gave off the nature of that of a marshmallow, very soft and a hint of warmness added to them. Her eyes were a deep brown that had shown a liking to me as she had her gaze stuck to me at the moment about to spurt something unimportant.
“I wonder if it’s gonna be a boy or girl? We could always use more girls on Freedom Ya’ know.” Riu said with a hint of excitement. I furrowed my brow at this “Riu, How many times must I say “I don’t want to join a battle club”? I said assuming it was just another one of her ploys to get me to join hers. “I wonder if the newby is a battler!?” she said completely ignoring my comment. “Is this all you ever talk about.” I said raising my eyebrow. “Maybe…” she let out slowly. “Hey where’s Asau?” she said, quickly changing the subject. “Don’t know, don’t really talk to her” I said simply. “Mmmm!”she gave with a puff of her cheeks.”Why don’t you ever talk to anyone!” she said sulking away.
Just outside the schools C-section a large flat-stone splayed corridor sits by the main buildings many sliding entryways, cutting it off from the courtyard just outside. The walls of the corridor wrap around the entirety of BWA allowing easy access to and from class sections. In it a Bulbasaur named Asau is taking Riu’s younger sister, Chu, a Pichu to her class “Hey c’mon were gonna be late if ya’ don’t get off yer’ butt’n hurry”! Says Asua, when a shadow ball erupts from a low lit area under one of the one fourth-circle struts poking out of the BWAs main building. Only a few inches away from hitting Asua, ruffling her hair slightly as it passes her head. Both are startled stricken for a second having just been attacked by an unknown pursuer. As Asau gains back her bearings; she hunches into a fighting stance then looks back at Chu to see if shes ok, and gives a look of relief as Chu appears unscathed. “Chu get back”!, “Who’s there”!?,”If it’s you Net, I told Rai I’d pay you back tomorrow”!...
A Banette appears from the shadows with a shadow ball in her hand moving it around like a pair of dice. Shes around an average heighted skinny girl with stony gray hair messily put up in a ponytail. Her dress utters simplicity as it is only arrayed with a few golden zippers and the skirt of the dress ending in a godet. The seems of the charcoal colored dress appear tattered as if a relic of clothing a generation past. She gives the pair an apprehensive look before opening her mouth to speak.
“I’m sorry I don’t take payment late, Here’s what you get” her words laced with poison. She stares at Asau with a cold half-lidded stare as if reading her. “Asau”! Chu screams as she sees Net rearing to attack. Net twirls her torso at a forty-five degree angle and uses the momentum of her body to complete the twirl. Then pitcher style launches the shadow ball at Asau and Chu at breakneck speed, but a thunderous roar echoes across the schools campus, not even a second later a scene similar to that of a flashbang hit both the victims and the pursuer and a lightning bolt strikes the shadow ball, causing it to lose stability and disappear before it could reach Asau or Chu. “WHO THE”!!? Net screams as her ears are still ringing from the mystery bolt. “A Thunder Bolt”? Asau questions. “The bells about to ring Asau” Chu yelps giving a semi-good excuse to bail. “Right let’s get going” said Asau as she maintains a deadlock line of sight on Net, slowly backing her way into the school building with Chu. “Don’t think that just because someone saved you this time that you don’t OWE ME!, I’ll get you after school”!! Net screams even after the two have fully entered the building.
As Asau leads Chu to class, she herself darts to her own right before the bell rings barely making it. She stumbles into class breathing heavily then looks up to see her friend Riu with a distressed look on her face. “Where were you”?!,“You had me worried!”,“How’s Chu, did she make it to class okay”?!,“Who used thunder”?! Riu screamed, bombarding Asau with questions as she entered the classroom. “Chu’s fine, Net just wanted what I owed her and I can’t give it to her til’ tomorrow” Asau says reluctantly scratching the back of her head. “Sit down before Ms. Arb sees you” Lya sputters out at the both of them. Interrupting the little scene Asau caused by running in the room like a lunatic.
Everyone sits down as Ms. Arb walks into the class and a figure waits by the door. “Lisssten up kidssss we have a new sstudent today come in and introdussse yoursself” she says while stepping aside for the addressed person. A handsome boy dressed in a blue and black accented coat-jacket walks into the classroom at a slow stride. He appears to be of average height with stark black hair that sits spiked at the ends. His features are smooth yet masculine giving an air of respect towards him. He shifts his golden eyes over the class and walks up to the podium in front of the class and bows eloquently. “Hello, I’m Lux Ten, a Luxio from Sinnoh. I’m an electric type, and my belief is fighting a battle without purpose is meaningless. It’s nice to meet you all” he says with a confident smirk. “Very well put Ten” Ms. Arb says with a warm smile. “Take your seat in the back next to Lya” she said pointing to the green haired girl in the back. “and Lya”... “Yes, Ms. Arb”? she says unsurely. She better not do what I think she’s going to… “Please Show Lux Ten here around the school after class” Arceus Dammit! THUMP *Head hits desk*
“Hi there, Lya was it”? Lux says while moving to his desk. “I’m showing you around the school and that’s it, no funny business understand”? she says giving him a sharp glare. ...“Funny business”? he says with a tilt of his head. “No I’m not like that” he says resting his elbow on the desk “All guys are! They look at me and think I’m some easy, shy girl” she says with a huff. What am I saying? Stupid, stupid “That’s a shame,... you seem like someone worth knowing” he says, maintaining a half-lidded stare at the board. “Mhm, that’s what they all say” What’s with this guy?, What is it about him that seems so off?
After class Lux walks out of the classroom doorway then sidesteps by a couple of cherry red lockers. Waiting for Lya to show him around the school. He crosses his arms and leans into one of the lockers as he watches all the students file out of the room in a not so orderly fashion. Lya, Riu, and Asau all come out of the class walking together, although Lya isn’t talking and looks rather uneasy.
“Yeah, so that’s what happened, a strong thunder came down and took it out” Asau says making an explody' movement with her hands. “Odd... thunder bolt doesn’t have that good of accuracy unless you have some type of ability or status affect to help that” says Riu with a perplexed face, her finger curled on her chin as if in deep thought. “So Lya, are these your friends”? Lux says walking up to the group of girls hands tucked in his pockets. “Well if you ask her wey're not” Riu says snapping out of her thought driven daze. “But we see her as a friend” says Asau looking up trying to make eye contact. “Oh you’re that Bulbasaur girl” says Lux shifting his attention to the short leaf green haired girl before him. “Wait. New student, he’s an electric type, the Ten family is known for their “Roaring Thunders” don’t tell me you’re the one who helped Asau and Chu”? Says Riu with a snap of her finger, as if Sherlock just solving a case. “Yes, that Banette girl seemed to want to hurt Asau so I stepped in. I hope you don’t mind” Lux says with a bashful tone. “No, Not at all, thank you” says Asau gingerly. “Do you wanna join Freedom”? Riu screams popping between the two. “I’m sure he doesn’t Riu” Lya says giving Riu a 'really' stare. “Thank you for the offer but I’m not interested in battle clubs” Lux says with a sweat drop on the side of his head. “Dawwww, well get going Lya you have a school to show off” says Riu waving them away.
Lya and Lux start at the main building's six class-sections then work their way to the courtyards acquainted to them. Lya and Lux were standing in courtyard-F a few feet from the main battle gym on inside the outer wall of the school.
“Never thought a school could be so big” says Lux staring up at the towering structure of the gym. “It’s not that daunting. It’s rather small kinda” says Lya observing the object for herself, having seen it many times already she doesn't look very impressed. “Oh, tennis? I’ve always been intrigued by this game” says Lux as they approach the tennis court a few yards west of the gym itself. “It’s one of our schools top sports and is 'praised' by the school, and speaking of Praised there’s the tennis Protégé herself Fli Beauty” she says motioning her finger towards one of the figures in the court accompanied by a scornful shot toward the girl of mention.
A girl with long black hair steeping beyond her hips steps out onto the court with a tennis racket and ball in hand. Her figure silhouetted by the locks, you could still see that her face was well rounded and smooth with a radiance of seriousness. She was a little under average height for a girl her age standing at 5'03" but never the less was a formidable presence on the field. Lifting up her right hand she starts the serve hitting the ball with a vigorous force back and forth with the other player, it seems to be a warm up session for her.
“You seem to not like sports, or this girl Fli” he says giving a terse laugh. “That’s because I find them to be a waste of time, I'd rather make better use of my time with-” “With what? This is the 1st time I’ve heard you talk so passionate about something” he says his full smirk mounted this time. “…with singing… I want to be a singer” don't laugh... please don't laugh. “That’s a nice goal to have, ambushing and exiting” he says regaining his seriousness on the situation. He didn't laugh? He he... Agrees. Oh thank arceus. “Thank you”… she says her normally pearl skin turning hue to a soft pink. “What’s wrong”? He says noticing she turned her head away as if hiding something. “Everyone I tell about wanting to be a singer just laughs and says I can’t be, that it’s too hard” she says morosely. “Well, I think they're wrong, it’s hard, but nothing is hard as long as you push yourself toward what you want to do” he says trying to mentally pat her on the back. I’m I really going to say this! "Lux”… “Yeah, Lya”? He says as she slowly turns her head towards his. She extends her hand with her other close to her chest and looks Lux deadbeat in the eyes. Her cheeks burning scarlet at this point. “It’s was nice to meet you Lux Ten, I’m Lya Devoir, would… you.. like to be friends” she lets out slowly, her eyes now having a change in heart darting away from his in an act of shyness. Lux grabs her hand and firmly shakes it taking Lya by surprise. This earns a mousy yelp from her making Lux smirk. “Nice to meet you as well Lya, It'll be my pleasure” his smirk never fading.
'And that’s the day I met Lux, I didn’t know what I was about to get into after shaking his hand. A long school year was ahead of me… us, and it was fun'
