Re: NL the Anime
hey guys, thanks for all the comments again ^^ Umm the reason why I rushed chapter 3 was because, well last night i did basically an outline of the whole story ummm yeah even with taking everything out I'm looking at about 40 chapters @.@;;; If only I cared enough about my school work xD. Anyways here's the 4th chapter. And, i won't sugar coat it. this bitch is freakin long o.o;
Molly made an "L" with her index finger and thumb across her forehead. "Baka!" Said Molly and Chrissy at the same time, and with that they walked off.
Lily stood there and watched the city, as if expecting it to get up and move. She wasn't sure if she even wanted to go into the city. She wasn't sure if this NL was any different from NC or not. But her aching body urged Lily to move forward. It demanded a nice hot meal and a shower by any means necessary. Lily wasn't sure what that could mean but, with pain in every step, began walking down toward the city of NL.
There was a toll booth connecting the beaten path to the city streets. Lily walked up the window not sure if she could get in since she wasn't in a car or didn't have any money. A lady there with a bored expression on her face was chewing pink gum, rather rudely in fact, cracking tiny bubbles and chewing like a horse would a carrot. "Please state your register Member ID code and password," the woman said without looking up from her magazine. She had her bleached blonde hair tide tight into a bee-have with thick rimmed, red glasses on. The woman's nails were so long and sharp they probably could have cut glass. They were painted to match her red pencil skirt and blouse.
"My what?" Lily tried not to be rude and stare at her obvious liver spots on her chest.
The woman sighed as if this was such a chore for her to do her job. While she turned a page, she slid Lily over a stack of papers. They were assorted colors of pinks, blues and greens. "The pink papers are your registration forms. The blue papers are just the rules that you must read and sign before handing them over. And the green papers are basically just agreeing that if you are caught Hacking or not obeying the rules of the city we are eligible to punish you for the crimes to what seems fit." The woman went back to chomping her gum, blowing a bubble and popping it, filling the air with a strawberry-kiwi scent. Lily looked around. She didn't want to join anything. This place was almost like NC, what if they were hunting her down?
Again, without looking up the lady tossed her a pen. "Hurry up. I'm extremely busy and want to clock out here soon before I turn old."
Lily looked down at the first form. State your name. Lily looked up at the lady and smiled. "This shouldn't be to hard right?"
The lady paid no mind to her but in her head, Lily knew, she was thinking of calling her a 'Noob'. What was with that stupid word anyway? Did it mean she was inferior or something? Surely if they were hunting her, the lady would have at least been on the lookout. Wouldn't she?
Lily walked over to a nearby tree and leaned the papers on it to write on. Lily put the tip of the pen on the paper and moved it down creating a vertical line. Lily could hear the scream of the paper as she cut it open, its black blood writing her name for eternity. She moved her pen fiercely on top of it, hoping to make the papers death quick.
Lily stopped midway and slapped herself. She was caring about paper dying! Man. She really did need a good nights sleep and some food. Lily continued to fill out the papers, unsure what it meant to 'join the city'.
As she was writing, a man with charcoal skin and dark as night eyes walked by her. He nodded at the lady in the toll booth and she raised the black and yellow bar for him. Just as he was about to cross over, he did a double take at the lady in rag clothing filling out NL papers. She wasn't very tall, he noted. She had long, light brown hair, he was sure it would have looked pretty if there wasn't dirt and twigs in it. The man walked around to get a look at her face. Her eyes were dark in the night sky, but they shun with the moon's light deep within. She didn't have the shape of a super model but there was still something nice about her look. It was like she didn't care what others thought of her, a strong woman. He wasn't sure what it was but there was something about her, something that made him actually break the words out. "Umm....Hi."
Lily shot her head up and looked at him, surprised. "Oh! Umm..Hi." She smiled and stuck out her hand. "Hi, I'm Lily."
"Horus." He took her hand but didn't take his eyes off of hers. "So, you're a Noob, eh?"
Lily's smile turned into a scowl and her eyes narrowed. "I'm not a Noob!"
"Of course you're not. Of course you're not." He watched her turn around and hand the papers back to the lady. "Look. Iím sorry for that comment." He walked over to her and leaned against the toll booth. "Can I make it up to you? Buy you a nice hot meal, give you a bed to sleep in."
Lily's eyes grew wide. Those all sounded nice. She looked at him through the corner of her eye. "I'm not that kind of girl just so you know."
Horus took a step back as if stunned by what she had said. "Nononononno, I'm sorry if I gave off that impression. I would never ask you to do something like that of course."
Lily raised an eyebrow at him while she waited for the papers to be processed. Once again, the lady did it without much enthusiasm. "Then what could you possibly want from me? Normal people don't give strange women beds and meals without wanting something in return."
"How about a friendship? Just one night is all I'm offering. Of course..." Horus shrugged his shoulders. "If you want to sleep on the street that's also fine with me. Hey, I was just trying to be a nice guy."
Lily sighed. If I just keep on my toes with him, a nice hot...well...EVERYTHING, sounds good right about now. "Okay Horus." Lily stuck out her hand. "You got yourself a deal. I promise not to be to much of a burden."
Before Horus could accept her handshake, the lady reached through the toll booth window and stuck Lily's hand with some sort of gun with a needle on it. "Member Identification Code: Lily229 Password ******" She said with a bored expression on her face. "Welcome to NL." Finally, she looked up and gave Lily and Horus a giant smile. Lily could tell it was forced and fake.
The lady re raised the bar for them and they walked through. "So," said Horus breaking the ice. "First time in Tom's Cities I take it."
Lily hadn't noticed, but she was looking around her as if seeing this place for the first time. It wasn't like NC, NL gave off a more quiet mountain town kind of impression then a really big city. "Umm...I guess you could say that."
Horus nodded. "Yeah, NL is mostly residential. But there's this place, in the middle of the city called 'The Forum'. Meh," He shrugged his shoulders as they turned down a street with houses and white picket fences everywhere. "It's ok. It's not great. It's not bad, but ok."
Lily stopped walking as he turned up into the yard of one of the picket fences. "This is where you live?" She looked him over. He looked high class but this house didn't match his personality. He wore a light red sweater and baggy jeans. His sneakers looked expensive. He turned to her and shrugged his shoulders again. Lily thought he did this a lot.
"Yeah." He stuck the key into the keyhole. "Me and my 'rents live here, but they're out right now."
"You mean...families actually live here? Together?!" Lily was astounded. Maybe she could convince her mother to come live here instead of with Mark.
They walked into his house and into a room to what appeared to be the living room. He turned and looked at her. "Lily, I bet you're wondering how three extremely huge cities are built here and only a few people know about it huh?" He smiled as he walked into the kitchen to get them something to drink.
Lily didn't sit. She was afraid of dirtying the furniture. Although, she wouldn't be surprised if there was plastic on them. "Actually kind of, yeah."
