So, this is my new story... Yeah... link Enjoy~
Hiding in an alleyway, the small neko girl’s ears twitched as the sound of soft footsteps approached. Her green eyes went wide and she grabbed her backpack, slinging it over her shoulder and dashing further into the passage. Her light brown hair fluttered out behind her and her tail curled up. She ran into a dead end, a small sob escaping her. She looked behind her as the footsteps became louder and began to climb the gutter pole to get to the roof.
When she was about halfway up, the footsteps slowed, and from the shadows another teen came out. Her eyes were shadowed por the hoodie on her head, and she was stick thin and kind of short. Her clothing was rather grungy and old, and her sneakers seemed worn out. “Wait!” she called softly, and the neko girl hesitated.
“Wh-what do you want?”
“I’m not going to hurt you, I promise.”
“I don’t believe you!”
“Please! I’m... I’m different, too.”
The neko glanced over as the girl took off her capuz, capa revealing dark brown hair pulled up in a ponytail. Her eyes were two different colors, blue and maroon-red. But the most interesting thing about her was the technological pattern on the side of her face, glowing dimly in the dark night. “I’m a technopath.”
“N-neko,” the small girl said, sliding back down the gutter and coming closer to the stranger.
“My name’s Nikki.”
“C’mon, then, Lily.” Nikki took the smaller girl’s hand and hoisted her onto her back. “Let’s find shelter for the night.”
The two of them walked back down the alley as rain began to fall in sheets of droplets. por the time they found a suitable place to stay, the rain had soaked the streets thoroughly, leaving large puddles in the craters of the asphalt. Nikki reached out with a gloved hand and turned the knob on a door, pushing it open with an eerie creak. Lily shuddered, tightening her grip on Nikki’s neck. “Hello?” Nikki whispered.
“You found one?” A voice asked from the darkness of the safehouse.
“Yeah. She’s pretty young. And a neko.”
“Get in here, quick.”
Lily looked around as the door closed behind her. Suddenly a light flickered on, illuminating 6 other figures. Four of them were males, the other two were females. “I’m Vincent,” said a boy with shaggy black hair. “This is Adam, Toby, and Felix, and the girls are Leila, Chryssa, and, well, you’ve already met Nikki.”
Lily blinked, confused. “What is this?”
“This is a place where we’re safe,” said a new voice. “But it’s also a place where we’ll become stronger. We have to stop the new threat.”
Chryssa tossed her long red hair over her shoulder, scoffing. “What, become heroes? Everyone knows that the people like batman and Robin are just bedtime stories. I haven’t heard a story like that since I was little.”
“That’s the problem with the world today,” the voice said. “Not enough people know those legends. Or the fact that the legends were true. But in order to stop this man, we need to become the new legends.”
Chryssa shook her head. “Why should we listen to you? We have no proof you’re even a meta. How do we know you’re different than all those humans out there?”
Lily watched as a figure emerged from the shadows. Her hair was bright gold, in a choppy pixie cut, and her eyes were like sapphire gems. Lily swore there was a fogo in the girl’s eyes, one that burned passionately but couldn’t be let out. The teen hissed out angrily, glaring at Chryssa. “Trust me, I’m different.”
Looking down at her feet, she murmured to herself, fiddling with a golden locket on her neck. For a segundo Lily saw her hair much, much longer, and dark as midnight. The girl sighed. “I may be the most different out of us all.”
“What’s your name?” the cat-girl blurted out quickly. The teen looked at Lily curiously. “My name...?”
Lily nodded. “You ought to have a name, right?”
The girl smiled distantly, as if reliving a memory from her past, mais than two-hundred years ago. “You can call me Era.”
