This is a really rough version of the story. It's just for you to get the general idea. I'm thinking it'll be three shot. If you don't know, Supah Ninjas is a Nickelodeon show about three kids who are ninjas and in each episode there's a different villain. There's more to it, but I'm just giving you it generally. So here's what the beginning is. This is probably not the whole first chapter. NOTE: Although I believe Lemonade Mouth and Supah Ninjas are set in two different areas, in this story the places from each story are combined into one place. It'll be very generalized, so it doesn't matter much.
Mike walked down the hallway heading to his math class. Amanda and Owen were walking alongside him, and they were all chatting quietly about the villain that they had fought a few nights ago. Suddenly from behind him, someone whispered to him, "I know."
Mike could feel chills running up and down his spine. He glanced around quickly, but saw no difference in the crowded, bustling hallway. He looked over at Owen and Amanda as well, but they seemed undisturbed. Maybe I'm just hearing things, Mike thought to himself. He continued walking, but then the voice came again.
"I know your secret. You, Owen, and Amanda are all…" the voice was cut off.
Mike whipped around quickly once more. Nothing. Okay, I'm definitely not hearing things.
Mike shook his head quickly, trying to get the creepy voice out of his head. He walked into the math classroom, Owen and Amanda trailing behind him. Owen and Mike took seats in the middle of the classroom, while Amanda went to sit with her other friends.
Mike was distracted the rest of the day, including during ninja training…especially during ninja training.
"Mike!" Hologramps said, "Pay attention to your attacker. If you are distracted, they can easily take you down."
"I know, I know," Mike replied, setting himself up again. After failing for the 12th time in a row, Hologramps sighed.
"Okay, Amanda, you take his place for now," Hologramps ordered, "Mike, sit out and clear your head. I think you've had enough for today."
Mike obeyed and sat on the side, rubbing his eyes.
True to his word, Hologramps never called on him again. When practice was over, Owen and Amanda walked over to Mike. Amanda held out a hand, which Mike gratefully accepted.
"Are you okay?" Amanda murmured.
"Yeah, I'm," Mike glanced over at her and slightly got lost in her blue eyes. But, he quickly pulled himself out of them. Amanda had just broken up with Cameron a couple of weeks ago, but Mike didn't want to say anything so soon after, "I'm fine."
"Are you sure?" she pressed, putting an arm on his shoulder.
"I'm okay. Just tired, I was studying late last night for the…history test."
"If you say so; but, you'd tell me if something was wrong, right?"
"Yeah, I would."
"All right," Amanda let it go, "Well, I'm going to head home now. Feel better tomorrow, okay?"
"Okay good night," Mike replied, watching as she disappeared up the trapdoor into his room and out of sight.
"Fukanaga," Owen said, getting his friend's attention.
"What?" Mike turned to his best friend.
"It is so obvious that you still like her!"
"We've been over this. I don't, we're just friends."
"Whatever you say, I'm going home. Get yourself together."
"I will. Don't worry about me."
The two friends headed up the trapdoor into Mike's room. And, Owen headed out of Mike's house.
The next day, Mike headed to school and found a note taped to his locker.
"Meet me at Dante's. We need to talk.
S? Who in the world was S? Mike only had two friends to begin with. Owen and Amanda, so who could S be? He pulled the note off his locker and slipped it into his pocket. Looks like I'll have to wait and see. I wonder if this has anything to do with the voice I heard yesterday, Mike shrugged and took a few books from his locker. Then, he headed to class.
During lunch, he went over to sit with Owen. Soon, the two boys were joined with Amanda.
"Why are you sitting with us today?" Owen asked.
"You're my friends," Amanda answered.
"Yes, but you have other friends. You know, other popular friends," Owen added.
"I'm fine sitting with you," Amanda said, a little annoyed.
"Oh guys," Mike spoke up, interrupting their conversation, "I'm going to be late for study group today. You know where the key is right?"
Study group was their code word for ninja training.
They both nodded.
"Okay, so just go into my room and start studying without me. If he asks, tell my Grandpa that I'll be late…working on a project."
"All right, will do," Amanda answered, "But what is the real reason?"
Mike lowered his voice; he figured it was time to let them know, "I think someone knows our secret. Yesterday someone was whispering to me, 'I know. I know your secret.' I couldn't see where the voice was coming from. That's why I was so distracted yesterday. And, this morning I found this taped to my locker." Mike pulled the note out of his pocket and handed it to Owen. Owen opened it and began reading it with Amanda peering over his shoulder.
"Okay, but be careful. All right?" Amanda said.
"We need you Fukanaga. There are three people in a trio, not two."
Mike smiled, "I will. I just want to see what's going on. And, what this…S…wants."
After school, Mike headed straight to Dante's. It was full, but in the corner of the restaurant he could make out an Asian girl with short brown hair and a blonde streak waving her arm at him.
Mike walked over to her table, "S?"
"Yeah, that's me. I'm Stella. And, you're Mike."
"I am," Mike cautiously slid into the booth.
"So, I know you're a…" She lowered her voice to a whisper, "a ninja." She continued in a normal voice, "And that you're friends are too. We need your help."
"We?" Mike questioned, "Who's we?"
"Me and my band, Lemonade Mouth, I'm sure you've heard of us right?" Stella asked.
It dawned on Mike, "Yes, I do know your band. I love your music."
Stella cracked a half smile, "Thanks. But, here's the deal. Someone's been stealing our music. Olivia and Wen are the only ones with copies of our music in their songbooks. The songbooks haven't disappeared, but our songs have been spreading throughout the city and other bands have been singing them. It's not just one band. It's multiple of them, so we can't pinpoint the culprit. That's where you guys come in."
"All right," Mike said, "But, how do you know what we are anyways?"
"Recognized your voice; you and your other friends were snooping around in my neighbor's house the other day and I heard you talking at school and figured out it was you guys."
"I guess that makes sense. I mean, we don't disguise our voices; but no one's ever found us out before."
"Well, I'm just extra observant. I have a good ear," Stella smiled, cockily, "Do you think your friends could come to our band practice tomorrow so we can discuss…things?"
"I think so."
"Great," Stella stood up, "I have to go home and babysit my little genius brothers. But, here's my cell phone number."
Stella handed Mike a piece of paper, "And, we'll probably have band practice in the music room."
"Okay, I'll see you there then."
Stella began to leave, but Mike stopped her, "One second."
Stella turned around to face him.
"Was that you yesterday?"
"The one whispering, 'I know'?" Mike asked.
"Yeah, it was. You've got to add some mystery or it's no fun. See you tomorrow, Fukanaga."
Stella left the restaurant and Mike left soon after, depositing the piece of paper with Stella's number on it into his pocket.
