Yes, yes, I brought about a new story. I know it's queasy, but I needed to bring this idea out (otherwise it would rot), we all know that story. Anyways, the OC outline is at the end of this short chapter, so please read the instructions first, it'll help me so much. :)
"Why is the world so cruel to me?" The whine came from the crouched man in the corner of the airport. A few handful of passersby whispered about the strange behavior the man portrayed, but didn't spend a lot of time observing the strange behavior. It wasn't until a few moments later the man finally got up from his crouched position from the ground, a determined glint in his eyes. "If I can't play my video games, then I must try something out!"
He returned to his usual slouched form, a bland look taking over his expression. "Stupid old man, he better get me those games… Now, it's time to change!"
With that, he made his way to the bathroom, dragging his luggage behind him.
Giselle was a saint, that's how most of her neighbors related her as. But really, the cotton blue haired woman was just generous. Generous yet viciously protective. She was a single mother after all.
Giselle sighed as she tied up her hair in a slack tail, and placed her favorite blue apron on. Humming, she opened the fridge to pick out the ingredients for a homemade lunch. The rice was already cooked and sitting in the pot, so now it was a side dish left to cook. "Mm, maybe a sandwich would be also a good choice..."
She shrugged and proceeded to make curry, the tofu would have gone bad otherwise. Soon the kitchen was wafting the delicious smell that rose from the curry. Taking a taste, the bluenette woman nodded in satisfaction. Her eyes wandered over to the clock on the stove momentarily, before returning to her cooking. "They should be awake now."
As if on cue there was a loud bang upstairs, followed by a shout. "Ethan! Get up you're late for practice!"
"I'm awake! I'm awake! Don't just barge into my room!"
"How else am I going to wake you up? You sleep like a dead log. Now hurry and change, the warning bell will ring in 15 minutes!"
"No way! Why not wake me up earlier?!"
"I would love to, but the last time I did that, you threw a book at me. I'm still nursing the bruise."
Giselle would never grow out of the amusement at her children's conversation. They always had the knack for making her smile. Placing the curry in the pre-made lunch from last night, Giselle set those aside to whip up a quick to go breakfast.
"Toast and jam should do the trick..." She murmured as she prepared the toaster, whilst taking out the jam. It was enough time until both her boys were downstairs all ready to head for school. Glancing at the clock, she quickly filled up the water bottles, and finished packing the lunch away in their designated carriers. The toast came out and she wasted no time in spreading the jam over them. Counting down the seconds until her boys appeared at the base of the stairs. "And, done!"
"What's for lunch, mom?"
Giselle turned to see her sons by the door, and secretly praised her ability to make it on time. She brought over their lunch bags, with their bottles strapped to it, in one hand, and their breakfast in the other. "Pre-made rice and curry, don't forget to heat your lunch up!"
"Sounds yummy," Her eldest, Albert, smiled as he took his navy blue lunch bag. He accepted his breakfast from her too, planting a kiss on her cheek as gratitude, earning a giggle from the bluenette woman. "thanks for the lunch, mom."
Ethan scrunched up his face at the interaction. "Could you two stop acting like husband and wife, it's weird!"
"You should start appreciating mom's cooking more, Ethan," Albert scolded his brother lightly. "if it weren't for mom, we'd have to make our own lunches."
"He has a point, Ethan dear!" Giselle smiled, handing over the remaining lunch bag to her youngest son. Their looks were so entirely different that if a random person had taken a glance, they would brush them off as two different people. Albert had mostly gone to her side in genetics, while Ethan had gone towards her long deceased husband. She was sure that they would both be as handsome and as strong as her man. The thought made her giggle. "Now don't forget to phone home if you have extracurricular activities, okay?"
"Yes, mom," Ethan said with sigh. This was never going to end.
"Or if you want to go to a friend's house." Giselle nodded, watching her boys nod and make their way out the door. "Be good and keep up your grades!"
"Bye, mom!" Both boys gave a wave and were soon off to get to school before they were really late.
Giselle gave smile as she headed back inside to start on her chores. She didn't want to miss her show either. But before she could start washing the dishes, the doorbell rang. Giselle glanced at the front door curiously, making her way towards it. "I wonder who it could be..."
Opening the door, she was met with a man dressed in rags topped with a patched up brown cape, hood drawn over his head with the peppered beard showing, and a stick. His feet bare. The only modern time object was the black luggage on his left. Giselle blinked and cleared her throat. "May I help you?"
"If you are so kind, would you allow me to stay here?" The man rasped. "I've come a long way from home, and hardly had the time consider my appearance."
Swallowing her clogged throat, Giselle took pity on the man and allowed him in. "Of course you can, I'll go get you a room so you can immediately take your rest."
The lips, hidden beneath the peppered beard, smiled. "God bless your soul, dear."
Giselle merely smiled. "Please, just call me Giselle."
"And call me Lucas, Giselle, a pleasure to meet you." Lucas bowed. "Now would you be a sweetheart, and lead me to your bathroom?"
Giselle gave a nod and led Lucas through the house. She stopped in front of the bathroom door. "Take your time and clean up, I'll make something for you to eat."
Lucas gave a nod and entered the bathroom, luggage in tow, and shut the door with a soft click. Giselle took the time to prepare a room for her unexpected visitor, her state of mind whirling with the frantic thoughts. She let out a breath and shook her head. "I'm sure that he only wanted shelter."
Giselle then went to finish up her newfound chores.
So here is a fanfic that would be progressing slowly (I have other fics that need my attention), and since I was way too lazy to make up the whole of the OCs participating in this story, I'm giving that to you.
Of course I'll be giving you the character outline (who wouldn't give that out?) along with the Zodiac Chart. Please make sure that you read it carefully, since I am basing this story off of the constellations. The only difference here is that I have added the 13th constellation as well, so of course the whole birthdate is going to be off from the original. Also you only need a few traits, select a few that you like your character to have.
So here's the catch: this is a first come, first serve basis, I'll be posting the main characters up on my profile (just by name and credits to the creator), so please, look at what is available before you place one there. Do keep in mind that I am human (unfortunately) and that I might not be awake to place the character on, so I will contact you if that is the case (you will have the choice to change the zodiac or change their status). Other characters (such as the enemy and minor characters) won't be posted on my profile (it'd be way too long then), instead, I'll give them an introduction at the end of the chapter they are introduced (placing their outline after the chapter), and of course the credits to whomever created them (this will also be done to main and major characters as well, fairness people, fairness).
