I sat in a black netted swivel chair in the library like the person next to me and the person next to him and so on... Except, I'd say I was the only one in anime cosplay as Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist. I yawned rubbing my eye and blinking slowly over at the computer, I was reading a Kingdom Hearts/Naruto fanfiction on Quizilla. (Don't go there. They ruined the site when the "updated" it. Downgraded more like it.) I suddenly noticed a shadow loom over me. "Ah!?"
"Time to go." Father hissed, demonically.
I was scared, "Okay, vampire..." I rolled my eyes signing out and leaving the computer by its lonesome. I'll come back to you, I promise!
"Do you have to wear that? Have you even washed it recently?" Father questioned.
"Maybe...No..." I said 'no' very quietly. I loved my Ed, "Good morning Nikki!"
"Good morning Ed!" *glomps Ed* I rubbed my hands in triumph. "EEEDDD!"
"Nikki, do you have a fever? Are you having dillusions again?"
"NNOO! Just fantasies..." I raised my eyebrows a few times. My fantasies are also very visual.
"No! It's raining!?" I screeched, "I can't go out there in this!" I fell to the ground, "I know what I'll do! I'll make an umbrella! Using...alchemy!"
"She's gone physcotic..." Dad muttered exiting the Library swiftly. "No! Wait!"
"Dammit! Gotta do everything myself..." I pulled a piece of broken chalk from my pocket. "This better work this time..."
This same forgetting an umbrella incident has happened before and I came to the same conclusion. But it didn't work at all.
I felt peoples eyes peircing my back and sides as I clapped my hands and brought them done with a slam. The circle glowed with blue light and people gasped just as I did, "What the-?!" I felt the ground below me crumbling; "What?! It's not supposed to do that!" I ran outside the ground crumbling after me as I ran around outside in the rain. "Someone! Help me!" I screamed running into the forest behind the library.
Suddenly the crumbling ground stopped; I searched for the reason but only found a red hair tie that wasn't the one from my cosplay; I also saw a flash of blonde hair. "Hello?! Who are you?!" I chased after them, "Please stop! I want to thank you!" That hair! It couldn't possibly be-!
"What're you going to do when I stop?" I knew that voice my hunch was right? How?!
"Nothing." I stopped in my tracks. "Then why am I chasing you? Well stop and you'll find out." I smiled; "I have your hairtie. Can I give it back to you?"
He jumped down from the tree above and stood slowly. "Why are you dressed as me?"
"Why, indeed; are you not the prodigy of the people. A genius in respects; the youngest state alchemist, "Fullmetal Alchemist."" I gave him the hairtie. "It has been a pleasure meeting you; I would like to ask you one thing."
"Yes, what?" He tied his hair back.
"How'd you get here?" I questioned him.
"The same way you almost did, a failed transmutation." He replied; "Where is here?"
