"Victoria!"Victoria heard her mother yell for her from downstairs. After running a brush through her pale blonde hair one more time, she headed downstairs, her packed bag over her shoulder.
Her mother was waiting as she quickly grabbed a banana and a granola bar. "Vic, Mistoffelees is outside. I think he wants to walk you to school.
Victoria's face lit up at the mention of her boyfriend. "Okay, mom! See you." She called over her shoulder and flew out the door.
Mistoffelees was indeed waiting outside, his black hair ruffling in the morning breeze. Victoria gave him a tight hug, breathing in his scent.
He caught her tightly around the waist, laughing. "Come on. Let's go, were going to be late."
Victoria held out her hand expectantly. Mistoffelees took it with a warm smile, and they set off together.
Victoria glanced around. The walk to school was always the same; the school was only a few blocks away from her neighborhood. She waved to her neighbors, two juniors named Coricopat and Tantomile, who happened to go to the same school. It took her a moment to realize that Mistoffelees was staring at her.
She snapped her fingers in front of his face. "Misto? You in there?"
He shook his head and smiled. "Yes. Sorry." He said, tightening his grip on her hand. "You're just really pretty."
Victoria blushed, even though he'd told her this many time before. "Thank you." She said shyly, clutching the hem of her skirt.
Mistoffelees twirled her around, eliciting a laugh.
Victoria groaned. To the left of her house, her neighbors were Coricopat and Tantomile. But on the other side were the infamous class clowns, Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer. She could recognize their thick cockney lilts anywhere.
"An'Vicky!" Rumpleteazer shrilled. Victoria rolled her eyes as the boisterous girl threw an arm around her shoulders.
"Teazer, personal space, please."
Rumpleteazer's eyes glittered playfully. "You're such a brown noser, Vic-to-ri-a." she sounded out her name mockingly.
Victoria chuckled a little. As annoying as the trouble twins could be, they were awfully funny.
Mistoffelees, however, looked less amused as Mungojerrie ruffled his hair. "Do you two know how to keep your hands to yourself?" he snapped.
Mungojerrie pouted. "You're no fun at all, Misto." He whined. "Yoo an'Vicky need ta lighten up!"
"That's roight!" Rumpleteazer added. "Hey! Why doncha cut class with us today? We know a real noice café a couple blocks away, Jer could drive us-"
"No!" Victoria was alarmed. "We can't cut class!"
Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer exchanged amused looks.
"No?"they chorused. "Why not?"
Mistoffelees shoved Mungojerrie. "Bug off, you two." He said, clearly irritated.
With identical laughs, the twins took off down the block, turned the corner, and were gone.
Mistoffelees ran a hand through his hair. "They're trouble, the both of them." He muttered
Victoria slipped her arm through his with a small laugh. "You think I don't know, Misto?" she giggled.
Misto quirked a half smile. "I know, dearest."
She leaned her head on his shoulder as they continued on. She was just the right height so she didn't have to reach up too much as they walked.
Suddenly, a loud clanging came from the bell in the school, signaling it was five to eight. With twin looks of alarm, Mistoffelees grabbed Victoria's hand as they raced around the block and into the school.
Students poured into the building, laughing and chatting. Victoria paused off to the side, laughing. Gradually, Mistoffelees joined in. She leaned in, going a little on her tiptoes, and they shared an out-of-breath kiss.
"See you after class." Victoria said wistfully, wishing they shared more classes.
Mistoffelees smiled at her, giving her a kiss on the forehead. "See you. And good luck with your test."
Victoria's eyes widened. "Shit." She raced into the building, skidding around the corner to get to her first class, leaving a smiling Mistoffelees behind her.
Aannnnd this is where I introduce the trouble twins! Spoiler: the next chapter will probably be about one or both of them ;)
