My little note:
Hello, my fiction pressers! This is my first time making a real fiction and posting it here. Hope you enjoy it!
I remember my first day of school. My mom helped me get my clothes on, and I clutched her hand while we walked there the whole way. When I was told to go to the teachers, I almost broke down because I didn't want to leave. When she left though, I learned to make friends, and I had a fun time.
Chapter 1: Normal
I'm a normal girl, right? I mean, I dress normal, I look normal, I act normal, and I have normal friends. I guess I don't look AS normal as others, with my long black hair and blood red eyes, and I hang out with the weirder people. It's not like we do drugs, we're just a little eccentric. I go to normal school, and I eat lunch with the rest of them. I go to the normal public high school.
Except, I'm not exactly what you call normal. I'm what you would call a "demon". No, I don't go around killing others with my demon-y powers. My mother (while she was living with me) told me I was something called a "minor" demon, in which we don't really have many powers, and we just kind of live like other people; we can't really do much damage, and most really like the human life. Many of us don't really get wings or horns most of the time. I'm quite happy about that. I like being "normal". In fact I feel like a normal human most of the time.
Powers? Yeah, I have a few. They kind of suck though. It's not like I can produce giant fire serpents or anything like that. My powers are very similar to that of a Zashiki-Warashi's, which is a type of house spirit in Japanese legends. In myth, a Zashiki-Warashi is a child-like spirit that brings fortune to your home; if it leaves however, misfortune befalls it. I am able to bring good or bad luck to me or people around me at will, go through walls, turn invisible, fly (or levitate; I don't have any wings,so…), tell if the people surrounding me are somehow supernatural and how (such if they are a demon or angel). change my own a appearance at will (I still have to be relativelyhumaniod), accelerated healing (I don't know how that got in there), superhuman fitness (you know, speed, strength, that kind of stuff), and I have very good senses. I find the latter 2 are just perks of being a normal demon, and the rest of my abilities are just the second hand powers because I'm not a "Major" demon. I guess the plus is that I don't have to worry about anything being blown up, for these abilities are pretty passive. I can live a normal life without having to hide anything big. I can't destroy the world, nor do I want to.
I live in the more seedy part of town because that's all I can afford. I live alone currently. My mom had to leave, and Dad doesn't like my… species too much. I live across the hall from one of my schoolmates, Jake. We've gotten pretty tight over the years, being next to each other and all. I kinda like him that way, but he doesn't seem to like me back. Oh well, better off not falling in love with a human and having your child abused while you have to leave for something urgent. Did that just come out? Well, I'm safe now alone.
School is easy and hard at the same time for me. Class work is child's play; it's just a game of memorizing. The social part is tricky. My "clique" is the weirdoes. We all are kind of a little eccentric, including me. We're not exactly "popular", but we're not hated, so it's cool. Jake hangs out with us sometimes. I get all silent, and I can't get out a word with out stuttering like an idiot. Ok, I admit it, I love Jake, but I can't say anything. I hope at least can be that untouchable hot neighbor that lives across the hall, but not really. I'm going to shoot for "best friend" status at least.
But as you can see, I'm quite normal, right? I'm Ray Katz, and this is my so-called-story, or whatever you call it. That sounded too cheesy for my taste, but it'll do.
