This story has contestshipping and some pokeshipping.
A new day had begun at the Petalburg Elementary School. The fourth-grade class had just received news that a new student was going to join their class.
“I wonder if the new kid is going to be a girl or a guy.”
“Do you think the new kid is going to be a nerd or a hottie?”
Noticeably, an emerald-haired boy, whose name was Drew, was rolling his eyes at his classmates’ enthusiasm.
“Geez. It’s just a new student. What’s the big deal?” Drew thought.
After a few minutes of the class’ loud interest, their homeroom teacher interrupted.
“All right class, settle down,” ordered Mrs. Lilly.
The class gradually quieted down until there was silence.
“As you all know, we are going to have the great opportunity to have a new student join our class. Make sure that you’re nice to her! Come on in,” invited Mrs. Lilly.
The class anxiously waited for the figure to show itself. In came a female brunette with a red and white bandana, and red and white clothes to match.
“Great. Another crazy girl joins the class,” the green-haired boy thought.
At school, Drew was the most popular guy around, especially when girls were involved. However, he was never quite comfortable with all the attention he got. Another crazy fan-girl wasn’t going to improve his life at school either.
There was also a bit of chatter among the other students. The girls were quietly discussing on the new girl’s Drew-stalking schedule, while the guys were mentioning to themselves how cute the new girl looked.
“Hi, my name is May Maple. Pleased to meet you,” the brunette briefly said, but with a smile.
“All right, May, let’s see where we can seat you,” the teacher said. Mrs. Lilly looked around the room shortly before saying, “Why don’t you sit next to Drew. He’s the one with the green hair.” (Okay, so you all saw that coming.)
The female students had their mouths open in shock, while Drew mentally sighed. However, instead of bouncing up and down in joy, May walked indifferently to her new seat, still with her smile.
“Now that that’s taken care of, let’s begin today’s lesson,” Mrs. Lilly said.
After the lesson, Mrs. Lilly gave the students a five-minute break to relax before she taught the next subject. May took this time to get to know her classmates a bit better. So she picked the closest victim: the emerald-haired boy.
So, she turned her body to him and said, “Hi, what’s your name?”
Drew calmly replied, “Drew, and don’t remember it.”
“Huh?” said a confused May.
“You’re not very smart, are you? Well, I should’ve expected it. After all, you are wearing a ridiculous bandana,” Drew said cockily.
May was appalled at Drew’s comment, but coolly counterattacked, “I’m not the one with green hair, so I wouldn’t be so quick to insult others if I were you.”
May then swiftly walked outside to go to the washroom, to avoid any other mean comments Drew would probably throw at her.
The other students overheard May’s insult, and heavily gasped. The new girl just insulted Drew’s hair? How dare she? That was like going up to the judge of a court and asking him to sentence you to prison for life or for execution! The female students immediately shredded May’s Drew-stalking schedule.
Even Drew was taken back. A girl actually insulted him? He’d insulted other girls before, but they’d all just end up smiling stupidly because he had taken the time to criticize them.
“This girl’s actually not so bad. It’ll be fun to tease her, too,” Drew thought with a mischievous grin.
That was how it all started. Ever since then, May and Drew would start a verbal fight everyday, finding a lot of things to insult each other about. May found the usual routine quite frustrating, while Drew found it rather fun and amusing.
But one day, May was found walking outside by herself during the lunch hour. Before she could make her way to the cafeteria, a long red-haired girl and a blue-haired boy from the sixth grade stood in front of her like pillars.
“Give us your lunch money, twerp,” said the red-haired girl.
May bravely asked, “Why do you need my money?”
“None of your business. Just hand it over,” said the blue-haired boy.
May was nervous, but was able to calmly say, “I’m not giving my lunch money to people who aren’t going to do anything with it.”
“Persistent twerp, eh?” asked the blue-haired boy. “Fine, we’ll tell you the story. We need the money to buy a soccer ball for our leader, Giovanni. Idiotic Jessie here kicked the ball too hard and by some horrific luck, it landed in a garbage truck.”
“Idiotic?!?” screamed Jessie. “James, you’re the one who couldn’t save a perfectly easy shot! Any idiot could have saved that ball!”
“Maybe if that idiot had hair that was a million feet long!” argued James.
“Don’t you dare insult my hair! At least I’m not the clueless one!” Jessie retaliated.
May took this opportunity to slip away from their sight. However, she tripped over a rock, and fell face-flat down on the ground.
The two sixth-graders then remembered what their mission was.
“Hey! Don’t think that you can get away so easily!” yelled Jessie.
Jessie quickly spotted the money clutched in May’s hands. Jessie grabbed on one of the ends of May’s five-dollar bill and pulled. However, May wasn’t one to just easily give up her belongings and tightened her grip on the money. Jessie pulled even harder and next thing they knew… the five-dollar bill was torn into halves.
“GAH! LOOK AT WHAT YOU’VE DONE YOU TWERP! YOU’RE GOING TO PAY FOR THAT!” Jessie screamed.
Jessie held May by the arms, making sure that May couldn’t run away. James dangerously came closer and punched May in the stomach. May screamed out in pain.
“Please, stop!” May cried out desperately.
“Should have thought about what would happen before you refused to hand us the money,” James said.
James’ fist began to make its way to May’s body again, but found something clasping his fist. He looked up to see an angry emerald-haired boy.
“Touch her again, and you’ll regret it,” warned Drew.
May looked up to her daily annoyance and now… her hero. “Why is he doing this?” she thought.
Meanwhile, James and Jessie were stunned to see Drew, the best athlete in their school, save a hopeless girl like May. However, even though they knew Drew was very athletic, they did not hesitate to teach him a lesson.
“Another twerp? Well, I don’t care how athletic you are. Nobody disrespects us and gets away with it!” claimed Jessie, as she let go of May’s arms and stepped back.
“That’s right!” said James, copying Jessie’s actions.
Jessie and James then charged towards Drew with clenched fists. At the last minute, Drew stepped out of their way. This resulted with Jessie punching James and James punching Jessie. The two collapsed on the ground from the pain.
May stared at Drew in shock. Why did he help her?
“Weirdos,” said Drew. “Hey, you okay, May?”
“Why did you help me?” asked May.
“Eh? Oh, well…”
May waited for an answer, expecting it to be some sort of embarrassing nice comment.
“I can’t let anyone else bug you, since that’s my job!” said Drew with a toothy grin.
May sweatdropped and became angry.
Before she could say anything, Drew said, “Come on, I’ll buy you lunch.”
May’s frown slowly turned into a kind and grateful smile. Maybe Drew wasn’t so bad after all.
After that day, May and Drew became best friends, but they still had their fights from time to time and would end up laughing afterwards. Because Drew was popular, May became popular, too. And yet, they both hated their popularity. That was something they both had in common.
As time passed, May became fonder of Drew each day. If anyone ever tried to hurt May, Drew would always make sure that they would be punished. Take the guy in their class when they were in the seventh grade. The fool tried to lock May in the janitor’s closet, but the poor fool did it just when Drew came into view. Drew immediately got May out of the dark room and made sure that the fool would regret what he did. Let’s just say that the guy had a black eye for a month.
Not to mention, Drew was pretty attractive. Although she insulted his hair in the beginning, she soon became very attracted to his green hair, but more attracted to Drew himself. In the eighth grade, she told herself and her other friend, Misty, that she had fallen in love with Drew. But she could never bring herself to tell Drew that. Not yet. One day, when the time is right, she will.
