My Ranking Points
IT’S BEEN 8 DAYS!
The Tale of Rosetta and Miso
When I came to this school, I thought it would improve me.
When I came to this school, I thought I would be influenced to become the best Evil I could be.
When I came to this school, I thought I would become the greatest villain of all time.
Turns out I was wrong.
I don’t know where to start.
I arrived on a day I was happy to be leaving my family behind, and to get a life of my own. To start with, I had been cocky, maybe even a little bit arrogant. Before you ask, I’m not a boy. Neither am I a girl. I’m just The Best.
Well, it depends if you’re counting Evalia.
I don’t ever like to say I’m second best, or anything less than best. But I fear I’m second best to Evalia. And I hate her for it.
I had first seen her as we were walking down into Evil Hall. She was quite different to everyone else, with her golden bob of hair that bounced none-stop. I had thought she was one of those Evers that was brought up in a Never kingdom.
And judging one of the most dangerous people on this Earth by their looks was one of my worst weaknesses.
Because, deep down, I knew she was better than me.
But I wasn’t going to let her beat me.
Her appearance was her deadliest weapon.
And I fell for it.
She also shared a room with me, Vice 45, and I had told myself how weak she was, I had even thought I had heard her crying in bed one night. But now I’m thinking it must have been one of her victims.
I didn’t get a chance to face her until Special Talents, where we were paired up against each other. I was ready to thrash her and show her that no-one messes with Sam of Ravenbow. But I never got the chance. Because of my luck, she went first. To begin with, it looked like she wasn’t going to do anything. Then she closed her eyes and it all begun. She started floating, which I had thought was a bit ridiculous. I had thought that that would have been it. I was wrong here, too. Without warning, her eyes shot open and she dived to grab me by the throat. She dragged me into the air and the ceiling was no match for her bird-like frame.
I’d never been beaten before this.
Nor had the emotion ‘fear’ ever entered my system.
But it did this time.
And I wasn’t happy with it.
Not one bit.
So I didn’t know how to react when I felt my own blood dripping down my neck.
And seeing it on her claw.
I saw this girl in a new light.
One where I was suddenly the prey.
And this was the thought that made me attach myself to vines and pull myself to the floor again.
Because I couldn’t stand being vulnerable.
But I couldn’t stop the dreams.
We’d only had a few classes when they started so I didn’t know about them. But that wasn’t going to stop them coming. They were all similar; a fuzzy face, a claw, my blood, death. At first, there was only a hint of blood that I could taste in my mouth, so I convinced myself that it was an illusion. But then the face stopped being fuzzy, and the blood stopped becoming just a taste.
The Nemesis Dreams were real.
And I was a Nemesis to a girl who I feared.
And I did, even though you would have to kill me before I’d admit it.
But this is only the start.
This was before the Trial by Tale.
I had scored relatively good ranks, so of course I was going in. But I still couldn’t understand how I could have a Nemesis from the same school. But soon that was pushed from my mind.
Because that’s when I met Lola.
And that’s when she moved to my school.
In my room.
And suddenly the first best went to third.
But one day, to my utmost relief, she vanished. And I was left again with Evalia. And my Nemesis Dreams.
One night, I just gave up sleeping. I had heard a big commotion. Huge. But I was the only one to go and see what caused it. The bravest Never, I called myself. The stupidest Never, others called me. On the foot of the stairs, lay Jerome, the other Ever who turned Evil.
The Never who was Good.
Or is it: The Ever who became Evil?
The boy who had managed to speak to me without ending up dead.
It was a small conversation, but it meant more than I can stress.
“Why haven’t you spoken a word, since, well ever?” he said, approaching me with a stupid smile on his face. I didn’t answer, hoping he would go away. He didn’t.
“Because I see no reason to waste my breath having a conversation with someone I am superior to.” I said, finally deciding I didn’t have a choice.
“Do you know what happened to Lola?” he asked next.
“I couldn’t care less.”
“Do you know who Rosetta is?”
Some pretty Ever you have a crush on?”
“I do not!” he defended, though he burned red.
“As I say, I am superior to you so this conversation means nothing to me.” I paused then added, ” I am also a better liar.”
“Do you know who Jason is?”
“Ummm, let’s see, the person dating your crush?”
“I do not like her! But yes. And he’s my brother.”
“Well, if you’ve come to me for relationship advice, you won’t get any.” I tell him, starting to walk away.
“I’m not!” I turned around. A smile crossed his lips, “I was wondering if you have any information on Miso.”
This was very different, but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless. Thanks for reading!
