Hey everyone, this is another story i started to write that had been seating on my computer for god knows how long and i decided to post it. hope you enjoy it so far. this is mostly Fang-centric but i`ll be switching POV every now and then.
The Farron Sisters
Yun Fang transferred from her old hometown of Oerba to the living city that was Cocoon so that she can finish her High school Year. She quickly befriends her roommate Vanille and made friends with Snow Villiers and Hope Eistheim. Then after a meeting with a pink haired girl, Fang started to get drawn into the mysteries and the enigma that surrounded the two Farron sisters…
A new town, a new school
Cocoon was entirely different than Oerba by miles.
Ever since she had taken the train from her small hometown which was simply three hours away at the moment considering the speed that the train was going at, Fang was amazed at how much different two places can be.
Fang was tall with dark and wavy hair which had some red in them. She was dressed in black pants with a leather jacket on her giving her a bad girl vibe. Her skin was bronze, from spending too much time under the sun and in the sea that surrounded Oerba, something that her mother scowled her repeatedly in the past when she was younger.
Her piercing green eyes roamed at the sights that were passing by the window seat she was seating enjoying the view she was having at the moment. Then, she remember why she had to come to Cocoon in the first place, which was one of the choice that her parents had made, telling her that she might have to experience life in the 'real' word as they like to call it.
Sure, Cocoon may be fifty times larger than Oerba, that doesn't make the life within it any different, right?
Sighing again, she glanced down at her watch to check the time and saw that it was nearing four o'clock meaning it won't be light any longer than a few hours, making her sigh again.
Fang had been hoping to be able to explore the school she had been transferring to. From what she had heard of it, Cocoon's Bodhum Academy was a sight to see. She pulled out the brochure that she had from her bag, and checked the school again.
The only reason that she had chosen the school was because that it was right beside the beach. Bodhum was a famous place for it's beach resorts and also the fireworks display during the city's festival…
"Attention to all Passengers, We are approaching the Bodhum Station. If this is your stop please gather your effects and prepare yourself to deport…I repeat…"
Fang quickly stood up and took her simple rucksack which she had stashed underneath her seat and walked out of her compartment. The train's hallway was filled with people as some of them talked about whatever they were going to do and some of them were speaking on the phone. Fang bypassed them and as she walked, she felt the train finally come to stop in front of the station.
The door slid open in a hiss and Fang was the first one out, walking quickly away so that she doesn't get stuck in the onslaught of the crowd. Quickly making her down the streets she glanced around Bodhum with curious eyes.
The city was looking great from what she can see and in the distance, she noticed a great circular white thing in the distance which looked strangely familiar…
Where have I seen this before…ah, the brochure.
She quickly pulled out her brochure and glanced at it and sure enough she noticed the same thing that she had noticed earlier, meaning that the school was also in that direction.
"You're going to the Academy?" a voice asked her.
Glancing around, she found the speaker.
It was a black man with an afro wearing a green vest. He was probably a local in the city.
"What makes you think so?"
The man pointed at the brochure, "This is sent out to all the students that will be coming to the school for the first time."
Fang raised her eyebrow, "How will you know that?"
The man gives her a grin, "The name Sazh Katzroy, and I'm a English teacher up at the school."
"You don't look like one," Fang deadpanned.
"That's what everyone says," Sazh continued with a shrug, "Well I'll see you at school then."
He made his way down the road and Fang glanced at her watch, knowing that if it got dark, it will be a whole lot harder to find…and the man was a teacher…
"Hey wait," Fang called following after him.
Sazh turned around from the vehicle he was about to get in and said, "You need something?"
"Can I get a lift to school?" Fang asked, "I'm kinda new in town so…"
Sazh shrugged, "Eh, what the heck, get in."
Relieved, Fang made her way for the other seat and opened the door getting in. Sazh started the car and they were on their way toward the school.
"So, what's your name?"
"Young Fang?" Sazh repeated now sounding perplexed, "What kind of name is that?"
"Its Yun not Young," Fang said, now irritated, "Y-U-N, not Y-O-U-N…"
"All right, all right my mistake there," Sazh chuckled, "Not my fault I'm mistaking. Not as young as I used to be you know."
"You don't look that old," Fang remarked glancing at the dark skinned man.
"Ah, looks," Sazh said shaking his head, "It's all the kids care about these days. In my days, things were very different and more…strict than it is today. It seems the world become more lax than it used to be back in the days…"
"Whatever you say," Fang said.
The ride continued in silence as Fang observed the passing cars and noticed the sky started to turn red marking the coming of the end of this day.
"So why did you transfer here at Bodhum Academy?"
"My parents wanted me to have a 'real world' experience by having a few good relationships with kids my ages," Fang said, "but I mostly chose it for the beach."
Sazh let out a hearty laugh.
"How did I know that you were going to say that?" he said still laughing, "but I hate to break it to you but students aren't allowed to go to the beach."
"WHAT?" Fang at all but screamed.
Sazh nodded, "Yep except on the week-ends, thought."
"Well, it's better than nothing," Fang said, "You had me going there for a while."
"Would it be that bad if they forbid the students to go down the beach?" Sazh asked.
"HELL yeah," Fang said, "but I'll probably sneak…"
"You do realize I'm a teacher right?"
Fang let out a grin scratching her head, "Right…I forgot about that,"
Sazh simply shook his head, "Kids these days."
The drive had continued up into the front of the school and she noticed that the place was deserted and the flag of Cocoon was proudly dancing in the small wind that was blowing across the empty area.
The two left the car in the parking lot as they approached the tall school building, and Sazh was whistling a tune.
"IT's bigger than I thought," Fang said glancing around as they entered.
The hall was large enough to fit in a large crowd of people with the stairs leading toward the second floor. She was then, drawn to the large statue of the Cocoon Nation symbol.
The globe seating on a pillar with stylish design upon it, and since it was made out of some crystal, the red sunlight was tinkling through it, making the thing shine like diamond.
"Beautiful isn't it?" Sazh told her.
"Yeah," Fang answered gazing at the sculpture.
"I'm glad you're enjoying the pride of our school Miss Yun," a voice announced.
The two turned around.
A young man was walking down the stairs with a slight smile on his face. He was dressed in a suit with a blue tie and his glasses were beautifully posed on his face.
"Ano…" Fang said.
"Hello Headmaster Raines," Sazh said, "Fang this is Cid Raines, he is the Headmaster of the school."
He look so young, Fang thought, amazed at the man in front of her.
"Glad to see you that you've finally arrived," Raines said still smiling, "Now, why don't we make for my office now?"
"Sure," Fang said, "I'll see you later Sazh,"
"It's Professor Katzroy for you young lady," the afro man told her.
Raines simply chuckled at the man's antics and the two walked back upstairs again and walked through the large corridor, and Fang was looking everywhere, taking in the great architecture that was put into the designs of the place.
"I see you're enjoying the sight?" Raines told her.
"It's an amazing place," Fang told him.
"It is if I dare to say so myself," Raines continued, "I only took over the school a decade ago, and I haven't had the chance to enjoy the sights. Ah, here we are."
They arrived at the door which labeled HEADMASTER and they entered.
The office was large, with couches and the desk by the window. They had banners of the school which bears symbols which Fang had no idea what they meant. Raines seated at one of the couch and invited her to seat beside him.
"I've looked over your records Miss Yun," he said casually, "You have qualified to enter this Academy fair and square, which I hope you enjoy the experience that comes with it. From your records, I hope you will feel at home here at our school since you've already applied for a dorm room yes?"
"Excellent," Raines said slapping his hands together and standing up and making his way toward his telephone and dialed a number, "It's me, I've got a new student here that will be staying in your dorm can you…yes, great you can send Farron then."
He hung up and said, "A student from the girl dorm will come and show you to your dorm, meet her at the school Entrance."
"Thank you," Fang said, standing up.
"Enjoy your stay and stay out of trouble okay Yun Fang?"
Fang glanced at the Headmaster and knew he had seen her past suspensions from her other school, "Sure."
Raines smiled at her, before returning his attention back at his desk, working through papers again. Fang left the office and made her way back down the hall. She could hear the echoes of her footsteps echoing across the hall since she knew the school was empty and by Monday, she would be going there too.
Fang was glad she had arrived this Saturday night, meaning that she will have the entire Sunday to explore the school and probably make some new friends in the process. Smiling she then arrived at the Crystal Monument and noticed that someone was already there.
It was a girl, thought shorter than her and she had been looking at the monument before turning around facing her and Fang stopped. The girl was beautiful with her pink hair which had a single ponytail hanging on her shoulder and she smiled at Fang, "You must be the new student Yun Fang right?"
"I…yeah," Fang answered feeling her heart starting to drum in her heart. What the hell's wrong with me…
The pink-haired girl smiled and said, "I'm Serah Farron, let me show you to the dorms then?"
Fang simply nodded and the two set out. Letting Serah walk a little ahead of her Fang was wondering why her body reacted the way it did? She knew for one she wasn't into girls, and she quickly concluded that the beauty of the girl must have taken her aback which caused a strange reaction for her…
Yep, that must be it.
"Yun Fang, are you alright?" Serah's voice told her.
Snapping out of her musing, Fang glanced at the smaller girl, "Wha…"
"Your face showed sign of discomfort," Serah told her.
"It's nothing to worry about Serah," she answered her.
Serah looked at her for a few seconds before walking again, leaving Fang standing there watching her walk away.
She…is kinda odd.
Shaking her head a little telling herself that she was imagining it, Fang quickly followed her down the path until they came across a gate which was left open and on the wall Fang noticed the large bronze plaque reading GIRLS DORM.
They entered the gate and Fang's attention was on the large building that was in front of them, and she was once again taken aback by it. She knew that the Academy was one of the most respected and school in Cocoon, so it shouldn't take her by surprise.
"Here we are," Serah told her pushing the brown wooden doors open.
It was brightly lit, almost like the inside of a Mansion, with a chandelier hanging in the ceiling. A staircase was leading up into the upper floor stood in front of them. Everything was well taken care of gleaming mostly as if it had just been cleaned.
"Serah," a voice said.
Fang turned toward the voice and she felt as if she had just had a heart attack. If she had thought Serah was beautiful, there was no word for the girl was had just made her presence known. She was breathtaking thought her face seemed to be emotionless and dressed in some brown miniskirt made Fang glance at her legs which seemed to be well toned and she was wearing boots. The stranger's eyes which were a somewhat electric bluish color met Fang's and she was surprised to see how much venom was in the gaze.
Why is she so pissed off?
"Ah, Headmaster Cid Raines told me to show her where the Dorm was sister," Serah answered, her voice sounding relaxed.
The venom lessened but it was still there, "Well you did what was asked, come with me then."
"Off course I know sister," Serah answered, "I'll see you in classes Yun Fang."
That snapped Fang out of whatever she was in and nodded at the girl. The other girl's met Fang's eyes before turning around with Serah following her and the two passed Fang and the door of the Dorms closed with a slam.
Damn, that was intense, Fang thought, but what was that girl's problem?
Fang then glanced around the seemingly empty dorm and made way for the stairs, hoping she will be able to find her room.
