-Have a Nice Day-
(A/N: Hiya! I just wanted to say that this will be written in play format…sort of. Why? I don't know…seemed easier at the time…)
Chapter 1: The Club
[ Scene 1. An alarm clock goes off. It reads 6:30 a.m. A girl is seen sleeping. She wakes up and looks to the clock]
GIRL: First day of high school…hmm…should I get up?
[she stares at her alarm clock, then pushes the 'off' button]
GIRL: Much better.
[She closes her eyes. Someone suddenly yells for her]
???: Isaa! Time to get up!
ISAA: Five more minutes mom?
MOM: No! You have to get dressed, brush your teeth and eat!
ISAA: It doesn't take me a half an hour to do that…
MOM: Get up!
[Scene 2. School. ISAA is sitting in first period]
ISAA: First day of high school. Oh golly gee. I'm so excited I'm going to piss my pants.
[A boy comes in, looking nervous. Seeing the open seat beside ISAA, he takes it and sets down his stuff (A/N: By the way, the other students are sitting around blabbing their mouths off)]
BOY: This school is crazy…
ISAA: [overhears him] Why is that?
BOY: One: This place is too damn huge. Two: They make people have math first period.
ISAA: True. High School is evil… What's your name?
BOY: Um, Nicholas, but I really hate that… Just call me Nick.
ISAA: Yeah, I can see why you hate it. Except I can see why you would like it too.
NICK: How could you like it?
ISAA: Nicholas D. Wolfwood!
ISAA: You know, Nicholas D. Wolfwood? Preacher guy from Trigun? (A/N: I would just like to say that, No, no anime characters will be appearing in this story. I just use names. Oh and No, I don't own the anime characters of course.)
NICK: [looks at her dumbfounded]
ISAA: You…don't watch Anime do you?
NICK: What's Anime?
ISAA: You don't know what Anime is!? HOLY CHEESE!
NICK: [gets nervous]
ISAA: You have much to learn Grasshopper.
ISAA: I feel sorry for you Grasshopper. Do you like cartoons?
NICK: Sometimes yeah.
ISAA: Okay! That makes my job a whole lot easier.
NICK: What? What job? And why does me liking cartoons make your 'job' easier?
ISAA: It just does.
[A girl comes in the class. She sees ISAA and smiles]
[ISAA looks over and see the girl]
[Ceres sits in front of ISAA]
NICK: Ceres? That's a weird name.
CERES: Oh? And what's your name?
ISAA: His name is Nick.
CERES: Really?! Cool!
NICK: I'm guessing she likes Anime too?
ISAA: Yeah. That's why we call her Ceres.
NICK: What's her real name?
CERES: It's Jennifer.
ISAA: Yeah. Poor her.
JENNIFER: Ceres is off of an anime called Hellsing.
NICK: So what's your real name? [looks to ISAA]
ISAA: Yeah, it's a long story.
JENNIFER: We all call her Shadow.
ISAA: [in a tone that sounds like Legato (from Trigun)] My name is Shadow. Shadow Bluesummers.
[The girls laugh]
NICK: Who's 'we'?
GIRLS: The 'When you go Anime, You never go backae' club.
NICK: Nice pig Latin. [laughs]
NICK: So, where's your club?
JENNIFER: Well, Kenshin is somewhere, probably lost.
ISAA: His real name is Kevin.
JENNIFER: Sanosuke is probably with him.
ISAA: That's Sean.
JENNIFER: Asuka and Misato are probably late.
ISAA: Andrea and Michelle.
JENNIFER: Alucard is in art right now. Lucky bastard.
JENNIFER: And lastly, Vash and Legato are in Biology.
ISAA: Brian and Eric.
NICK: Aren't many girls huh?
ISAA: A lot of girls think Anime is for 'geeky guys'.
JENNIFER: Which isn't true!
NICK: So what do you guys do?
ISAA: Well, at meetings we usually go to someone's house and just hang out, watch Anime, play video games, blah, blah, blah.
JENNIFER: Yeah, what did you think? It's a cult?
NICK: [laughs nervously]
JENNIFER: So what's his deal Isaa?
ISAA: I'm taking him under my wing.
JENNIFER: He doesn't watch anime huh?
ISAA: [shakes her head]
JENNIFER: Well Nick, if men in black or white suits ever come to your door asking if you know Isaa, say you never saw her.
[The girls laugh. Suddenly the teacher comes in]
TEACHER: Okay class, settle down. We've got a lot to get through.
[Suddenly a boy comes running in after the bell]
BOY: [hastily] I'msorryI'msolate! I'llneverbelateagain! I'msorryI'msorryI'msorry!
TEACHER: Um, it's okay! Please, take a seat.
ISAA: Sano! Hey! Over here!
[Sano (Sean) sits by JENNIFER]
SANO: Hi guys.
ISAA: Where's Kenshin?
SANO: Oh, he's in Chinese.
ISAA: Lucky bastard.
TEACHER: Are we quite done with our gab session?
ISAA: Oh, uh, yes! Sorry!
[Scene 3. Lunch. ISAA is waiting outside the cafeteria doors for everyone]
ISAA: Dammit. I told Jennifer to hurry up!
JENNIFER: [comes up beside her with the club in tow] You called?
ISAA: Thank GOD! Let's hurry and find a table!
JENNIFER: What about the new kid?
ANDREA: New kid? Since when are we accepting applications?!
ISAA: Since now. You guys go inside. I'll wait for him.
[The club heads inside while ISAA waits for NICK]
NICK: Isaa! Hey!
ISAA: Took you long enough.
NICK: Sorry, I got lost.
ISAA: Just c'mon! We have a meeting to attend.
[ISAA drags NICK inside. She sits down at the table the club is at.]
ISAA: Hello everyone. Good to see you all!
ERIC: Hello Isaa, as always it's a pleasure.
ISAA: Yeah…um, I have an announcement! [puts her hand on NICK's shoulder] This is Nick! He's our new Grasshopper!
ISAA: Now he's never heard or seen Anime before, so I want everyone to inform him on…um…stuff.
SEAN: What happens if he doesn't like it?
ISAA: Respect his opinion of course. Also, this year we're taking applications!
BRIAN: What? Why?
ISAA: We need more people to be able to form a club here in the school.
KEVIN: What about his name?
NICK: My name?
ISAA: Yeah, it's a tradition of sorts in the club.
NICK: Well, I definitely don't want to be called Nicholas.
JENNIFER: Oh I know! Let's call him Grasshopper Wolfwood!
ISAA: What do you think Nick?
NICK: …Do we really have to have Grasshopper there?
NICK: Okay, fine.
[Scene 4. Gym. ISAA is sitting in the bleachers on the girls side of the gym. JENNIFER, MICHELLE, and ANDREA are sitting with her]
ISAA: This day is almost done! THANK THE HEAVENS!
ANDREA: Yeah, just one more period to go.
MICHELLE: If you think today sucks, wait till Freshman Friday. (A/N: For those who don't know, Freshman Friday, at some schools, means that it's the day to embarrass the hell out of freshman. It really sucks.)
GIRLS: [sigh, irritated] yeah…
JENNIFER: You think they'll allow that? I mean, it's unfair.
ANDREA: I'm sure they'll come up with a SAFER, more FUN way to humiliate freshman.
ISAA: Yeah… Wouldn't it be cool if we had our own bodyguards who would keep us insult free for that day?
MICHELLE: Yeah! Bishounen bodyguards!
JENNIFER: Cute guys galore!
BRIAN: Hey, we can hear you over here! Stop with your stupid dreams! They're making us sick!
ISAA: Oh shut-up Brian.
JENNIFER: Yeah! If we were talking about scantily clad girls, your tune would change real quick!
SEAN: You're damn right it would! [laughs]
ANDREA: You guys make us sick!
BRIAN: And your stupid girly guys make us sick!
ISAA: And thus ends another episode of 'A day in the lives of Otakus'…
JENNIFER: What a bunch of children.
So, how did you like it so far? Please, no stupid flames. Only creative flames. R+R! Thanks!—
