Me: This is a Two-Shot story, I do not own X-men Evolution, I really like that show on tv when it was on, I miss watching it. Anyways I do own Nicole Gem though, and as you can tell this is a Pietro/OC don't like? tough cause this a Valentine's Day story, everyone deserves love no matter who or what they are. Other people don't like it I understand just enjoy this story, if you want me to make chapter's tell me cause I do have an idea for the chapter's. Anyways enjoy~
Today is February 9th. It's 5 days before Valentine's day. Everyone at school is excited, especially for the dance coming up for V-day. It sucks, though. I can't even find a guy that would want to be my valentine. They say I'm too boring or not that pretty. I told my best friend Kitty Pryde what they said, and she just blew up! She even stomped to the guy that said that to me and sucker punched him, giving him a bloody nose. I laughed when Kitty yelled at the guy on the floor that he was a idiot, I was pretty and he wasn't good enough for me. Kitty is such a wonderful friend. She walked back to where I was sitting at, sitting down and grinning ear to ear.
"Thanks Kitty. You didn't have to sucker punch the guy...even though I enjoyed it."
"No problem. I just wish guys like that would learn to be gentlemen like instead of selfish pigheads like that."
"You're telling me. I'm just glad you and Lance are together finally. So, are you and Lance going to the dance that's coming up in 5 days?"
"Yep! Lance asked me before lunch. What about you Nicole? Found any lucky guys yet?" she gave me a sly look, nudging my side making me blush
"Actually about that...I got my eye on one guy, but-" Kitty cut me off, giving the look that says 'really?'
"What are you waiting for? Go find the lucky guy and ask him silly girl!"
"...But there's a problem Kitty." She frowned, so I went on "He has a girl, Kitty. I don't know what to do...I really like him like you love Lance." I sighed hanging my head sadly.
"Nicole... Don't worry, Nikki. You'll find someone. Just don't give up." I lifted my head to face Kitty with a soft smile, thanking her.
I ate my lunch with Kitty. After the bell rang for the next class, Kitty and I went our separate ways. She goes to a different class then I do. We only have a couple of the same classes.
Oh, and I know about her being a mutant. She was worried to tell me, but I told her I wouldn't tell anyone. I didn't care if she was a mutant. She's still Kitty my best friend.
School was out, so I was walking outside, then walking along the sidewalk to where my house was. I was stopped by Kurt who was a mutant too. I walked over, smiling big, hugging Kurt, and surprising him.
"It's good to see my favorite, blue, furry friend." I let him go, smiling at him and seeing Jean and Scott who said hi. "Hi, you two love birds!" I laughed when the both blushed, turning away from me.
"It'z good to zee you, Nicole."
"Same here Kurt. I hope you have a date for the Valentine Dance. I know you were looking at a girl in our class today~" I saw him blush when I mentioned the girl he likes, Amanda Sefton. She's a really sweet but shy girl. I met her all the time in my classes. Lucky for Kurt, she wants him to ask her to the dance. I hope he will soon, or I'll drag his pointy ears to her.
"W-will...I waz going to but I got nervouz."
I huffed, walked over to Scott, shoved my backpack in his arms, confusing him, walked over to Kurt, grabbing his arm, and dragged him to where Amanda was sitting under the tree. I pushed Kurt a little toward Amanda, pointing to her and giving him the look that said 'Tell her!'. I watched him as he nervously walked over to Amanda, who noticed him, smiling sweetly and shyly at him. I did my job in helping those two, so I walked back to Scott's car and put my backpack on my back again, saying bye to them.
I was walking when I felt this big wind hit me, seeing a white blur pass by. I tilted my head, and frowning, I shook my head and started walking forward again until I saw my house, which was a normal house. Seeing two cars, I knew my mom and dad were home...That's weird. I opened the front door, closing it behind me, and took my shoes off, walking up stairs to my room and setting my things on my bed. Hearing my mom call my name from downstairs, I walked down to the kitchen to see my mom, but her back was facing me.
"You called me mom?" I jumped back wide eyed when my mom turned around with a big huge smile, holding a KNIFE! "M-mom?"
"Hm? Guess what sweety!"
I kept my eyes on the knife in her hand, really wary. "W-what is it, Mom...?"
"Could you help your father in the back? I'm busy cooking stew for dinner tonight."
"O-okay! And Mom...please don't swing that knife around this time..." I took off to the back of the room to see my dad.
"Oh! I didn't realize I was holding the knife...Oh well~. Time to cut some more carrots."
I helped my dad with whatever he needed help with, ate dinner, and then went to bed, hoping tomorrow would be better…
I was walking to school on the sidewalk. Sighing, I reached my hand to the right side of my face, putting the front of my hair/bangs behind my ear. My hair was short up to my chin. It was dark, dirty brown-blonde hair with pink and blue highlights. (I asked my mom if I could have highlights. It took a lot of begging until Mom gave up.) My eyes were blue. I got my eyes from my dad while I got my dark dirty brown-blonde hair from my mom. Dad has black hair. What I hate most about myself? I wear glasses. I get teased about it. The jocks call me 'four eyes' or 'nerd'...Not all people that wear glasses are nerds. That shows the jocks don't have brains to even think. Idiots. I squeaked when a white blur went past me like yesterday, but this time it came right in front of me. It was Pietro Maximoff, the guy that I wanted to be my valentine, but he has a girl.
"Hey, Gem. Why are you walking alone to school?"
My face was turning warm, but I kept the blush from showing itself.
"It's good exercise. What about you? You're usually getting a ride with Lance and the others."
"Ah, well, I decided to use my super speed instead."
I tilted my head, blinking and watching him turn his head away from me, arms crossed. Something seemed wrong, so before I could stop myself, my mouth opened.
"What's wrong, Pietro?"
He looked back at me, surprised a little, but shook his head, sighing and rubbing behind his head.
"...Will, it's about Amy, my girlfriend. I just found out from Toad, who saw her kissing another guy...I couldn't take it and used my super speed yesterday..."
I was so angry! How dare that bitch play around Pietro's feelings!
"I'm sorry Pietro...wait! That was you that went past me so fast yesterday, and that's why your using your super speed today..." I frowned and narrowed my eyes slightly. "I think you should dump her for what she did. She's another faker, Pietro. She only liked you for your looks...That's so stupid…Only wanting to be with you for your looks? That isn't love at all. Oh! I'm sorry for running my mouth like that! I'm so angry at that girl."
Surprisingly, he chuckled lightly, smiling a little, which was a good thing.
"It's all right...Do you want to get to school faster, Nicole?"
This time, I didn't have time to hide my blush. I nodded, and he bent down so I could climb onto his back, wrapping my arms around his shoulders. Then he took off. I closed my eyes, feeling the wind hitting my hair. Pietro finally stopped close to the school, letting me down on my feet. I started fixing my hair since it went wild from all the wind hitting it.
"Here." Before I could react, Pietro flattened my hair. "There. Well, gotta go before we're late."
I blinked, watching him walk inside the school building. Snapping out of it when hearing the final bell ring, which made me yell out, I was afraid that in my first class I'd get detention. I did get a pink slip, so I had detention. I had my forehead on my desk with my arms lazily hanging.
"...Nikki?" I lifted my head to see a blurry person. I grabbed my glasses, putting them on to see Amanda with a frown.
"Oh, hi, Amanda. What's up?" I smiled brightly, showing her I was fine, but on the inside I wasn't. Even so, I hated to worry my friends.
"Nothing much. Oh! Kurt asked me to be his valentine, and he also asked me to the Valentine Dance in 4 days now. I'm so excited!" I giggled at how excided she was. "What about you, Nikki? Found the lucky guy yet?"
I sighed, shaking my head. "No...probably won't, but I'll still go...maybe, depends."
"Oh...Kitty told me and Kurt what that jock Eric said, right?" I nodded. "Do not ever let guys like that put you down. You're pretty the way you are. If no guy in this school can see you as the sweet kind girl you are, then they are idiots."
I wanted to cry. Amanda was so sweet. I smiled. "Thanks Amanda. I ran into Pietro while walking to school."
She gasped, leaning down, hands flat on my desk and shocked "Tell me! Maybe you have a chance."
"He went past me with his super speed but came back in front of me. I knew something was wrong. You know how I can tell by reading peoples eyes. He actually told me, Amanda, and it's that no good Amy. She used Pietro. Toad caught Amy kissing some jock and, as a good friend, told Pietro. Poor guy. He was heartbroken..."
"That girl needs to learn a lesson. She can't play around with someone's heart! That cold hearted bitch!"
I blinked at her, shocked that she cursed. That was a first. "Wow, Amanda. Didn't know you had it in you to curse. You're usually so shy and sweet. Well, that shows every rose has it's thorns, ne?"
Amanda and I cracked up laughing until the teacher came back, asking everyone to get in there seats to start the lesson of History.
It was lunch time. I told Amanda she could go on ahead to see Kurt and the others. I was going to get some food first. I forgot to make lunch for myself, so there I was in line, grabbing the food that was good. I got what I wanted. I looked around to see if I could find Kitty, Amanda, and the others, finding them, walking over, and setting my tray down next to Rouge, who nodded at me. Rouge didn't mind me. We talked sometimes. She's really cool.
I cursed in my head when I forgot something in my locker, so I asked Rouge if she could watch my seat and food. She said sure, so I walked out of the noisy cafeteria to my locker. I opened it, grabbing my sketchbook of drawings. Closing my locker, I stopped to hear yelling close by, so I walked over to the corner, peeking my head out to see Pietro's back and that girl Amy yelling at him.
"Amy, I said were through! I know you went behind my back and cheated on me. I'm sick and tired of it!"
"I did not cheat on you, Pietro! How dare you accuse me of cheating!"
My eye twitched a little, pissed off mostly that Amy was lying. I knew Pietro knew she was lying...maybe I should jump in? Nah! Pietro could deal with her, but I'd stay right there just in case. I listened back to there yelling until Amy got violent, actually slapping Pietro. That made me really angry, so I decided who wanted to hide and watch some girl slap someone that didn't deserve it? They noticed me. I walked beside Pietro, glaring at Amy.
"Nicole? What are you doing here?"
"I was going to get my sketchbook and pencils." I showed him my sketchbook and pencils while still keeping my glare on Amy. "When I heard yelling, I decided to figure out what the yelling was and found you and her. Amy...I don't think you should go and slap Pietro like that. You're the one who went behind HIS back and cheated on him!"
That just made her angry, getting into my face. "You have no right getting in our business! Why don't you get lost, freak!"
My eye twitched again, letting my bangs cover my eyes and clinching my fist tightly. I snapped my face up, giving her the death glare, and raised my fist up, punching straight at her nose and hearing a crunch. I watched as Amy fell backwards, holding her face and crying in pain.
"Don't you EVER call me a freak again. I'll do much worse then break your pretty little nose, you good for nothing bitch!"
I snapped out of my anger fast when I was forced to move my body to face Pietro, but he dragged me somewhere else. Stopping finally, he looked at me with a big grin on his face.
"That was a good punch, Nicole!"
Pride swelled inside of me. I beamed at him, smiling brightly. "I know, right? She did deserve it. She slapped you- Oh! yeah your cheek! Here." I brought out an ointment cream from my pocket and rubbed some of it on his cheek where Amy slapped him. She did have a good slap, leaving a red hand print on his cheek.
"There, just don't touch that for a while until the cream takes effect."
He nodded, smiling at me. My face flared up, smiling nervously.
"You're great with things like this."
"Oh, my mom is a nurse at the Hospital, and my dad is a doctor. I want to be like my mom...just not everything." I smiled sheepishly.
"Why is that?"
"Oh, when my mom is at home, she's kind of a carefree person. She doesn't realize things or she doesn't let anything get to her. But when she's at work, she's serious and saves lives. I want to help people get better. Also, I love to see them leave with a smile, knowing they're going to be okay."
"Wow, I think you're a wonderful person."
"I'm not that wonderful." I smiled while blushing a little "I just don't like seeing someone in pain no matter who or what they are."
"That's good. Not many humans care for us Mutants..."
"Hey...the humans that think mutants are all evil are idiots 'cause I know a lot of good ones." I smiled with my hands behind my back.
"...Heh, Thanks, Nicole. You're one of a kind, you know that? Anyways, should we get back to the Cafeteria with the others?"
I nodded happily walking beside the guy my heart wished to be with, but right now I'd just be his friend. He needed one even though he had other friends. This day was better then yesterday, and I hoped the next day was more wonderful.
