>>>>>>>Okay. Just to let you all know, the story takes place in Orbis and they go to school there. Also, the characters in the story are whatever they are in game, so Aliyah is a mage, Guru a fighter, Indigo her beloved infieri, and so on and so forth. You’ll see more of their “maplestoryness” as the stories go on and the characters fully develop. CHAPTER 2!<<<<<<<<<<<<
Aliyah sat under the huge oak tree watching some girls toss a Frisbee around. When suddenly, it landed next to her.
“Hey sorry! Can you toss that back to us?!” A girl with long black hair said.
Aliyah just looked at the Frisbee. She didn’t know how to toss that dam Frisbee if her life depended on it, so she held it up and walked to them and returned it.
“Hey, you wanna play?” The girl with the long black hair said.
Aliyah merely shook her head.
“Oh come on. You looked bored as hell over there when we were playing. It’ll be fun!” The girl reasoned.
“Yeah, we don’t mind. My name is Ezyan, she’s IndigoLove and the girl over there with the ponytail is Liviadia.” The girl with long brown hair who was now known as Ezyan said.
“I don’t know how to throw a Frisbee.” Aliyah said, looking down so the others wouldn’t see her face.
“Well we’ll teach you come on..uh, what’s your name?” Liviadia said, running over to the others.
“Aliyah.” She answered, still not looking up.
“Well, come on Liyah!” Ezyan siad, running backwards preparing to throw the Frisbee that she stole from IndigoLove.
“Hey! Give that back!” IndigoLove said, running after her.
Aliyah couldn’t help but smile, for the first time in, hell she didn’t know when the last time she smiled was. She just knew that she actually liked these girls. So she walked over and watched them as they threw the frisbee back and forth. Liviadia finally threw it to her, and to Aliyah’s surprise, she caught it!
“Throw it back Liyah!” IndigoLove yelled happily.
So Aliyah decided to give it a try and threw it, not very hard, but not too light either. And she actually did okay for her first time throwing it.
Aliyah went to her first class, walking the same speed that she always went. A fire could break out and she would still walk at that speed, while the kids around her would panic and scream. She knew she was weird, there was no denying it, but she always thought that it made kind of unique. You know how every girl thinks that their special, like they’re truly worth something? Well, Aliyah didn’t. She knew that she was just the opposite, that she wasn’t worth anything at all, but she didn’t care. She liked to remain in the shadows, to never get noticed by anyone. That’s why she was so surprised that she liked those girls that she met that day; they actually made her feel happy that she was noticed for once, like she belonged for once in her life. When she finally made it to her first class, she immediately noticed Gujju hugging all over Guruji. Aliyah couldn’t help but shudder at the thought of being touched by Gujju. She looked so cold. How could he stand her? But, it wasn’t her business so she looked the other way and continued walking to her seat.
Lunch rolled around faster than it usually did and Aliyah couldn’t be happier. She never liked science. As she left she bumped into someone walking out of the class. She looked up to see who she had bumped into and her breath got caught in her throat when she saw who it was that she ran into.
“Sorry.” She mumbled under her breath.
“So, you can apologize.” Guruji said.
Aliyah remained silent and looked down at her feet.
“You know you should talk more, you have a nice voice.” Guruji said smiling as he left.
‘I have..a nice voice?’ Aliyah thought as she watched him leave.
Aliyah turned to see Liviadia, Ezyan, and IndigoLove walking towards her.
“You got first lunch?” Ezyan asked.
“Yes.” Aliyah answered.
“Cool, you can eat with us.” IndigoLove said.
They all got in line, Aliyah in front; IndigoLove was next, then Ezyan, and then Liviadia. Everything was going fine, until some jack@ss got right in front of Aliyah.
“Hey! That little punk got right in front of Aliyah!” IndigoLove all but yelled.
“Aliyah, aren’t you gonna say anything to him?!” Ezyan asked, outraged.
“Hey, you little @sshole! Get your @ss behind us where you belong!” Liviadia yelled at the kid.
“Is that an invitation?” The guy said, eyeing Liviadia.
“Why you-!” Liviadia yelled, trying to grab the guy and punch him as the other two girls held her off.
“And what about you? What chu hidin’ under there?” The guy said, starting to grab at Aliyah’s hood.
Just as he was about to pull it off, a hand flew onto his shoulder and yanked him off of her.
Aliyah looked up to see Guruji, who looked pretty pissed. “Hey bub, why don’t you leave these pretty young ladies alone and go crawl back under the rock you came from, ya @sshole.” Guruji said, pushing the guy away from him.
The guy got the message and left, looking at the girls menacingly.
“You okay Liyah?” Guruji asked, looking at Aliyah.
Aliyah nodded. Guruji smiled and said, “Come on, yak it up. You know you want to. Besides I know you gotta talk more if these are the girls that you hang out with.” He said.
Just then, Gujju sauntered over, hugging on Guruji right in front of Aliyah.
“Guru-lover, why didn’t you wait for me outside?” Gujju said, not bothering to look at Aliyah or the others.
“Aww, and you saved a spot in line for me.” Gujju said, kissing his cheek.
“(Cough!) Slut!(Cough!)” “(Cough!) B*tch!(Cough!)” Liviadia and Ezyan said, between fake coughs.
Gujju glared at them for a minute and then chose to ignore them.
Aliyah looked down at her feet and smiled. Maybe that’s why she liked these girls so much, because they were so brave. Just like she wished she could be. Being near these girls gave her a new strength that she’d never felt before. It made her want to speak out too, but she chose not to at the moment.
“Guru-lover, you’re still gonna take me to Sycrus’s party tonight, right?” Gujju asked, coating her words in honey.
“Sure babe. It’s tonight at 8:00, right?” Guruji asked.
“Mm Hm. I expect you to pick me up at 7:00.” Gujju said.
As Liviadia, IndigoLove, and Ezyan heard this they all exchanged evil glances between each other.
Aliyah got home at her regular time, her mother was yet again talking on the phone to someone down at the office. So she didn’t even bother to say hello and just headed upstairs to take her usual nap.
“Aliyah!” Aliyah awoke to see who was yelling to her.
It was her mother.
“Some friends of yours are here to see you!” Her mother yelled.
‘Friends? I don’t-Oh yeah, those girls I met today.’ She thought getting out of her bed and going downstairs.
There stood IndigoLove, Ezyan, and Liviadia all dressed up in party mode looking at Aliyah.
“Why didn’t you tell me you had plans tonight? I would have helped you pick out something to wear.” Her mother said, pleased that her daughter was being social for a change.
“Oh, Aliyah! You’re beautiful! We’re gonna have so much fun giving you a makeover!” Ezyan exclaimed, excited that she got to see what Aliyah looked like finally. They pushed her upstairs and began to go through her wardrobe, picking out something sexy for her to wear. Liviadia began to brush her hair as Ezyan began applying makeup to her face.
Half an hour later, they finally finished. They stepped back to look at their work.
“Well, I think we did all we could for the patient doctor.” Ezyan teased, looking at Aliyah.
“Oh ****, it’s gettin’ to be party time! We gotta book it if we wanna show off our new improved friend.” IndigoLove said, looking at her watch.
Guruji sat there, bored as hell, as he watched his girlfriend get toasted and flirt with the guys around her. FInally, when he had enough, he got up and walked outside. He didn’t care too much for partying, it just seemed kind of pointless to him. Just then, his eye caught someone. The most gorgeous woman he’d ever seen. Beautiful tanned, flawless skin, beautiful figure, long legs. He couldn’t believe he’d never seen her before.
“Maybe she goes to another school?” He asked out loud, trying to think of a reason why he hadn’t seen her before. He had to get to know her, so he followed her through the crowd.
“Wooooooo! This place is jumpin’!” Ezyan yelled, swaying her hips to the beat of Kylie Monogue’s, “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”.
Just then, someone tapped Aliyah on her shoulder. She turned around to find Guruji looking down at her.
“Hey, you wanna dance?” He asked; hope shining in his dark brown eyes.
“Oh she’d love to!” All three girls said, pushing Aliyah into Guruji.
Aliyah looked up into Guruji’s kind eyes and almost got lost in them.
I just can’t get you out of my head
Boy your lovin’ is all I think about
I just can’t get you out of my head
Boy it’s more than I bear to think about
Her instincts told her to pull out of his arms, but for some reason she just couldn’t. She felt so safe in his arms, something she’d missed feeling for a long time.
“Get your paws off my boyfriend b*tch!” Someone yelled behind them.
They turned to see a drunken Gujju, pissed as hell.
“Gujju, it’s not what it looks like, she fell.” Guruji quickly explained, finally letting go of Aliyah.
“Come ‘ere ya little b*tch!” Gujju yelled, grabbing Aliyah and trying to slap her, only to have her hand stopped by an angry Guruji.
“Gujju, I’m tired of your jealousy. You always do this.” Guruji said.
“But this little whore’s tryin’ ta steal youse away from me!” Gujju shouted.
“That’s it! We’re through Gujju! I’m tired of you being so dam clingy and starting some sh*t every time a girl even looks at me!” Guruji yelled, pissed as hell. With that said, he walked out. Aliyah just stood there in shock as Gujju fell to the floor, not believing that Guruji would ever talk to her that way.
