Yay! First chapter! My first time writing, so reviews and critiques are appreciated. FYI, I probably won't update often, as I do have a life. I don't really write often, and thought I would post this for fun.

Disclaimer: I do not own anything other than Yukio.
Man, another boring day at school. I thought, as I stared mindlessly out the window. School just seemed so boring and made me feel restricted. I wonder how life as a pirate would be. Yes, I know it seems cliché, but risking your life every single day at sea is way better compared to living is safety without freedom. Suddenly, a hard smack to my head snapped me out of my thoughts. "Yukio! Pay attention in class!" yelled the snot-nosed teacher. Snickers could be heard throughout the class room. Accompanying them were the usual ridicules. "What a tomboy. She's such a weirdo. I bet she's actually a boy dressed as a girl. She's a monster." I ignored their annoying insults, and pretended to pay attention to the lecture.
My name is Yukio, and I am 16 years old. I have short black hair and dark brown eyes. As you have heard, I am a tomboy. It's not like I act that way on purpose, but if you've lived in a house with 3 older brothers who are apparently obsessed with martial arts, you have to fend for yourself. Thanks to genetics, I was born with a high level of endurance and "boyish" features. I started learning martial arts at the age of 5, and have been stuck with it for my whole life. I basically adapted my own style of fighting using kicks, as I found it less damaging for a girl with skinny arms (me). All the leg training led to me having an above average speed. I mainly wear t-shirts and baggy pants, as they are easier to fight in as well as comfortable. Thanks to a past incident with the school, students were allowed to dress in casual clothes instead of uniforms (thank god).
Man, sometimes I wish my life was as exciting as an anime. I could have magic like what Fairy Tail mages have, or devil fruit powers like people from One Piece. Sigh, the dullness of reality is harsh.
