“And this is your room. You'll be sharing with…..Marinette.” Plagg, I think, said as he opened door to reveal a bright green and red room, with two twin sized beds on opposite sides of each other.
I saw a girl on her bed, on her cell phone. She looked up to me and waved with no emotions at all. I smiled and waved back.
“Tikki said that your time is up. Phone, please.” Plagg said to Marinette as I watched as he extended his hand out to her
and she placed her phone in his hand.
“Now, if you two need anything, I'm down the hall.” Plagg told us before leaving the room.
I started to unpack my clothes before looking over to Marinette. I watched as she laid there staring at the ceiling. As I continued to unpack, I looked around the room noticing, 2 desks, 2 laptops, a couch, a flat screen, a bathroom, and a huge glass window.
I looked back over to her bed and saw that she was reading a book. I looked closer to the book and saw that it was called Immortal Beings. (A/N: not sure if this is really the name of a book.) I walked over to her bed and sat down she looked up and smiled slightly.
“Wanna play a game?’ Marinette asked me.
“Sure.” I replied.
We ended up playing 21 questions and some other games. This was probably the most fun I've had since I was about 6. Ever since then my dad became abusive. I smiled at Marinette before someone entered the room.
“Marinette, come to my room please” Some red-headed teenager said.
“Ok,-Marinette said to Tikki- I'll be back.” Marinette told me before she left.
I walked down the hall with Tikki, my counselor. We walked to her room and went in.
“You know Adrien, your roommate?” Tikki asked me as I nodded.
“Well, he has anxiety and he was paired with you for a reason. Your grandmother informed us that when she dropped you off here yesterday, that you enjoyed helping and looking out for people. Are you willing to look after Adrien when either me or Plagg aren't around?” Tikki asked me.
“Yeah, sure. What will I have to do?” I asked.
“Ok. So to prevent him from having a panic attack, explain to Adrien why somethings that way. Or if he's already having a panic attack, get a brown paper bag, which are in the cabinet in the bathroom, and put it up to his mouth. Make sure you tell him to take deep breaths. Sometimes he even faints, if that happens, there is a button on the wall over his bed. If you press that, it will ring both mine and Plagg’s room. We'll come as soon as we hear it. Until then, hold his hand
until we can make it over. So, are you sure you can do it?” Tikki asked me one more time as I nodded.
“Great! You can go now.” Tikki said as I left her room and walked back to mine.
When I entered I saw Adrien standing at the window staring out into the city. I walked over to him and as I got closer I saw as tears fell from his face. I got closer to him and laid my head on his shoulder and grabbed his hand.
“It'll be okay.” I told him.
He looked at me and smiled slightly. I let go of his hand and wiped his tears. I then hugged him. He didn't hug back so I looked at him and realized that he was panicking. I let go and went into the bathroom and came out with a brown paper bag. I walked over and put it up to his mouth.
“Take deep breaths.” I told him.
After about 5 minute his breathing was back to normal. I walked him over to his bed and sat him down. I looked over at the clock and saw that it was 8:30.
“Lay down. Getting sleep will help you feel better.” I told him.
He nodded and laid down. I stayed with him until he fell asleep. Once he was finally asleep, I got up and walked over to my bed. I prayed before walking over to my desk and taking out 3 books. One for my mom, my dad, and my best friend, Manon. Though
they are dead, I write in the books like I'm talking to them. After I finished telling them about my day I went into the bathroom and changed into my pajamas. I walked out and laid down on my bed.
I woke up to the sound of crying. I looked over to Adrien bed and saw that he was shaking in his sleep. I got up and walked over to his bed and sat down next to him. I shook him awake. I sat him up and hugged him and this time he hugged back.
“What's wrong?” I asked.
“I wanna go home. I miss my mom.” Adrien said as he continued to cry into my shoulder.
“Adrien, look at me.” I said as I lifted his chin so he was looking at me. “The faster you get better, the faster you'll see your mom.”
“But, what if I don't get better? That means I'll never see her again. I miss her. She'll never get to tuck me in again and tell me everything will get better. I wanna go home.”
Adrien said as he cried.
I didn't even know what to say. I was speechless. I mean, I couldn't even know what he was going through. I lost my mom almost 5 years ago. I had time to adjust. Though it was harder at first, I wasn't around her for as long as Adrien was and she was obviously a big part of him calming down with his anxiety. So, I just said what I could.
“Adrien, I might not know what you're going through, but please stay, because I promise you, that I will help you get better, so that you can go home to your mom.” I said before hugging him, and tight.
“I'll stay.” Were his last words that night before I stayed with him.
It's been about a week since Marinette and I
have met. We start school tomorrow and I can't wait to start with her. Right now she's in the bathroom putting her pajamas on. I watched as she came out and walked over to sit on the couch next to me.
“So, what movie are we watching?” Marinette asked me.
“It doesn't matter.” I said.
“But I'm awful at choosing movies. This is why I told you to choose one.” She said.
I sighed before grabbing the remote and searched for some Disney movies. I finally chose “The Lion King”. We sat there and watched lion king until we eventually fell asleep.
When I woke up Tikki was running around our room. I sat up and stared at her until she finally noticed that I was up.
“Good, you're finally up. Now come on and we'll figure out what you'll wear for your first day of school. So, tomboy or girly girl?” Tikki asked me.
“Tomboy.” I answered. She then grabbed a pair of my dark colored jeans, my black t-shirt, and a pink and black plaid shirt. She then pushed me in the bathroom only handing me my t-shirt and dark colored jeans.
I put it on and then came out. She then tied the shirt around my waist before pulling me back into the bathroom. She plucked my eyebrows and did them. She then applied a red lipstick on my lips. She then took my pink and black plaid shirt of of my waist and put a red and black one on. She smiled before grabbing a black beret and a black purse and put it on me. She then took the beret off and curled my hair because she totally forgot. When she was done, she put the beret on and walked out.
I walked over to the couch and woke Adrien up.
Me and Adrien were at the counter eating our breakfast before Tikki came in with our bags. We finished eating and grabbed our bags. We then walked out of our room and down the halls saying goodbye to all the little kids who said goodbye back. Though I love Sunshine Rehab 4 kids, (place they're at if you didn't know because I haven't mentioned it til now) the little kids there are annoying. Me and Adrien walked to our new school together. We were starting 8th grade in April.
We walked all the way to the front entrance of the building. When we entered the middle school, we walked to the office. When we entered the principal introduced herself.
“Welcome to Maplewood Middle School. I'm Mrs.Diamond and these two students to my right, are Alya and Nino. They will show you around the school and will attend the same classes as the both of you. Now, you are all to be excused.” Mrs. Diamond said as we left the room.
“So, what are your names?” Alya asked us.
“I'm Marinette.” I said.
“Adrien" I heard Adrien say.
“Anyways, now that we know your names we can tell you everything you'll need to know to survive the rest of 8th grade.” Alya said as she stuck a lollipop in her mouth.
Alya took it out of her mouth before speaking.
“First, any class that we have Chloe in, the mayor's daughter, whatever you do, DON'T get on her bad side. Second,Mrs.Mandeleiv
is very rude and not understanding. Old may I add, but make sure you're always doing chemistry work in her class, otherwise whatever your doing she'll always use that against you and send you to the principal’s office. Third, at lunch you'll sit with us along with two other students, Kim and Alix. We'll introduce you two to them later. Also we have lunch with the 6th graders while the 7th graders eat with the 5th graders. This middle school starts at 5th grade, if you didn't know. And fourth, any time that the bell rings, make sure that you're in class two minutes after or else you'll get a detention. But that's it for now.” Alya said before we walked into our homeroom classroom.
“So this is our homeroom. Our teacher is Ms.Adrae. She's pretty nice, though, she doesn't put up with fighting. Me and Marinette will sit in the second row, while Nino and Adrien will sit in first.” Alya said as she propped her glasses on her nose before sticking her lollipop back into her mouth.
We sat down in the second row and waited for the teacher to come in. I talked to Alya and learned a few things about her as Adrien did the same as Nino. About 10 minutes later the first bell rung signaling that you had 2 minutes until you had to be in your first period room. Ms.Andrae walked into the classroom and went up to her desk.
“Good Morning class. Today, we have received two new students. Marinette and Adrien. Please make your new classmates feel welcome. Now sit in here and wait for the next bell to ring.” Ms.Andrae told us.
Me, Alya, Adrien and Nino talked about a lot of stuff and learned a few things about each other. We eventually planned a sleepover at Alya’s on Friday.
Marinette and I just walked into our room from school and we had already gotten homework. I watched ad Marinette walked over to her bed before falling onto it. She crawled under the blankets before wrapping herself in them. I just stared at her before starting my homework. We got so much for it only to be our first day, but then again, it is April. After I finished my homework I looked over to where Marinette was and saw that she was still sleeping. I walked over to her bed and sat down next to her. I grabbed one of my books and read it while she continued to sleep.
When I woke up I saw that Adrien was sitting on my bed reading a book. He looks cute when he's focused. I think I've been developing a crush on him. Nah, I think every boy is cute with electric green eyes with golden blonde hair, but, then again, Adrien's the only golden blonde haired electric green eyed boy I've ever seen or met before. I sat up and grabbed my bookbag before Adrien noticed me.
“What movie are we watching tonight?” he asked.
“I already told you, I'm awful at choosing movies, but, a horror movie would be good.”
Adrien got up and searched something on Netflix as I started and completed my homework. When I finished my homework I walked over to the couch and sat down next to him.
“What movie are we watching?” I asked.
“It.” Adrien answered.
As we watched the movie, I would normally scream or bury my head into Adrien's chest as he laughed at me. When the movie ended, I stayed there on the couch as Adrien walked over to his bed. I looked back at him as I watched him take his shirt off. I immediately blushed, but only a little. I watched as he got in bed as I sat on the couch scared helplessly.
I got up and walked over to my bed, looking around for clowns, not paying attention to my surroundings. I walked into my bed, but luckily, I have good reflexes so I stopped myself from falling face first into the bed. I sat down on my bed taking out my big unicorn pillow my dad gave me on my 11th birthday before…..you know. I laid down trying to sleep, but I couldn't. I got up and walked over to Adrien's bed and sat down next to him. He looked at me before smirking. He sat up and looked at me.
“You're scared, aren't you?” he asked.
I looked away blushing in embarrassment as I nodded. He slid over and made room for me to lay down next to him. I laid down and looked up at the ceiling making sure I didn't see anything weird. I then turned over on my side facing Adrien biting my lip because I was trying not to blush. Adrien looked me in the eyes before smirking.
Before I knew it, I was blushing. It's funny how we just met but it feels like we knew each other forever.
“What are you thinking about? Is it about how hot I am?” Adrien asked smirking.
I blushed even more. As of now I'm pretty sure my cheeks are hot pink.
“N-no. I was thinking about something else.”
I said as my blush died down.
“About what? Me and you?” Adrien asked still smirking.
“Yes, actually.” I said as Adrien was now blushing.
“It's funny how we just met….but, I feel like I've known you for a very long time.” I said as Adrien pulled me closer to him so our chests touched which resulted to me blushing, again.
“I feel the same.” Adrien said before falling asleep.
