It was her senior year in high school. So far Kori and her 'uniqueness' had gone unnoticed her four years. Many people believed that magic doesn't exist and magic users were only things of the past. Little did they know, magic was still among them. Granted, it wasn't the mystical, spell weaving, shrouded in mist kinda thing. This magic could just be called upon.
There were cool magic powers such as time control, telepathy, shadowing.. almost anything someone could imagine. Of course there were the basic element controllers. Kori could manipulate the shadows. It was easy to control, but she wished it could have been something cooler like fire or air. Shadow just existed to scare people and scare people it did. At least no one knew the power that existed in her.
She was a popular in high school. Even though her attitude was kind of bad, and she did things to rebel, somehow people still liked her. Kori had a history of coming to school in an.. altered state. That's what made her rather... outgoing? or indifferent. Either or worked or maybe both indifference and being outgoing went hand in hand. Basically, it wasn't uncommon for the teacher, or principle, to call home to her dad.
Her dad... that was a story in its self. He was a single parent, and he didn't care much about her actions. Kori just thought that he couldn't stand being around her since she looked so much like who mom who had died. Why did people do that happen? The child gets treated wrong because of the resemblance to a parent.. but whatever. As long as she got to do what she wanted without any consequences then there wouldn't be a problem.
Today was like any other day. English, chemistry, math, lunch, home. Lunch was definitely her favorite part of the day since she got to be around all her friends and not have to worry about her attitude in class.
Its his senior year but he just came from a different school. Tired of normal girls coming up to him asking him if he would go out with them and telling him how hot he was. to him life is so boring because he has no idea that there are people who have magic like he dose. He's power to control ice has made him cold. Both his parents are off on business trips all the time and he pretty much lives at his home by himself and gets money from his parents every week.
Walked in the lunch room and looked around and grabbed a bottle of water from the machine and it felt cold so he used his powers to cool the water, hoping no one will notices . so after we chills his water he heads to the roof of the school to skip class just relax from the bored of school
this was finally Drake's senior year but he just came from a different school. drake wasn't exactly one that fit into normal crowds.this was further exacerbated by his power over the infernos of hell, which conjured itself as black flame he controlled. he tried as best as he could to hide this from everyone but his few close friends like kori. his family tried to make him embrace his power but in all honesty,he was terrified of it because of an incident when he was younger.
he had been only ten and was training with his old tutor who happened to be very abusive.he wasnt able to properly do basic forms for the powers and whenever he couldnt,she would strike him with an arc of energy as punishment. one day he just lost it and his flames lashed out at her,unheeding of their master's wishes. all drake remembered from that is after the tutor got out of the hospital,she was fired.
today drake drove to school in his new car to show off and when he parked in front of his friends and got out,he tripped and spilled his coffee on the ground.he quickly got up"i uh...meant to do...that.."he said weakly
Kori leaned lazily against her blue Toyota Celica as Drake drove up. She noted the new car and rolled her eyes slightly. What was it with boys and wanting to show everyone their new toys? They were nothing but grown up kids. Instead of contemplating his new car, she studied her black chipped nail polish. I should probably repaint these. Hmmmm. The splashing of liquid caught her attention; she looked up from her nails just enough to see that Drake had tripped and dumped his coffee on the ground. Raising an eyebrow, she chuckled softly.
“That’s what you get for trying to show off,” she said teasingly, her black high heels clicking every time they struck the ground. “Coffee is gross any way. Don’t know why you like the stuff.”
She was far from an avid coffee drinker; if she got anything with coffee in it, it was something frou-frou like a Frappuccino. Kori was more of an energy drink person. Get her a monster or a venom, then she was happy.
“At least you made an entrance today. Everyone noticed you.” She continued to tease.
he scowled"i ran out of monster yesterday.i need to get some today".drakes shoulders slumped and he noticed the shoes"rent those a little high?"he knew kori was a bit free with her style but those heels were a little high"i mean they are like 4 inches high!"he was still happy that he was taller though"so do you want to go get some with me after school? ill make it worth your while"he grinned evilly,purposely making it seem like he was doing more than just getting her a pack too but they both knew how he was.
"I could have rented them higher; I thought I'd compromise," Kori said softly.
She looked down wistfully at her shoes. In all honesty, she loved them. There was nothing wrong with adding a little height in life, plus, they made her legs look great. At the end of the day her feet would hurt though. Maybe she would get Drake to rub them. A mischievous smile crossed her face.
"I will go get food with you after school, if you will rub my feet after we eat."
Kori nodded seriously. The rubbing of feet was a serious matter. Well, not really, but she liked to think everything she did was serious; it wasn't. Was anything she did every serious? In her mind, life was too short to be serious all the time. Okay, her power was a serious thing. Tilting her head to the side slightly, she began to wonder if she ever told Drake about her possession of shadows. He had already told her of his gift, but did she tell him? Kori just shrugged to herself. It didn't matter whether he knew or not.
"...you do realize that means you have to actually OBEY school rules right?"he grinned.drake was well aware of kori's antics and was usually the voice of reason.well he was the voice of reason when he wasnt being the voice of god-know-what on most days.he yawned as he poked her just below her boob on the tickly spot on her ribs"ill agree to a foot massage if you stay over tonight.its so lonely in the mansion"drake teased"ill even get your favorite game out!"
Kori looked at him as if she was offended that he would even suggest she didn't. Drake knew full well how she was; it would never change. In a way, he was like her voice of reason; her personal Jiminy Cricket. Next thing she knew, his finger brushed her ticklish spot, and she squealed. Kori quickly covered her mouth then glared at him before smacking his shoulder.
"You're such a jerk! You know now to tickle me in public."
Staying the night.. She gave him a thoughtful look for a moment. Did she want to stay over? He would give her a foot massage if she did, and he would play her favorite game with her. Was she up for playing that game tonight? Maybe she would steer the course of the night in another direction. It wouldn't be that hard.
"I'm sure we could play something else."
Kori smiled and moved closer to his lips before smiling and leaving his side quickly for the school doors. Today was going to be fun.
he went red,making his pale skin light up like a stop light"you are an evil bitch some times"he scowled as he walked after her,hands loosely hung in his back pockets"you would think playing(INSERT RANDOM GAME TITLE HERE) would be in automatic yes for me"he tickled her again.then her though better of it and lifted her over his shoulder and carried her like a ver attractive sack of potatoes that conveniently had boobs"so are you sure you want to tease me like that again ri ri?"drake grinned evilly,using the hated nickname.his was luci(pronounced like loosey).
Kori reached back and pulled at the end of her dress to keep it covering her butt. She hated it when he did this. The fact he found this enjoyable, along with calling her Ri Ri, irked her greatly.
"Just put me down you jerk off," she grumbled and smacked his back with her free hand. "Haven't you ever heard of manners?"
This was so frustrating. She hated being controlled like this, but there wasn't much she could do. Even with her 4 inch heels on Drake still towered over her, so there was no luck in her touching the ground, but yet, she found that insanely attractive. The fact he did do things to take away her control was a huge turn on; that was something she would never admit though.
"I will tease you as much as I want. I know you'll always get me back later." She chuckled at the end of her sentence.
he set her down at her locker"oh you know you love me"drake grinned and poked her forehead"no matter how infuriating i am"drake added cheerfully.his antics were common after eight years but they rarely got old"...i want a taco"he said out of nowhere. he wasn exactly very sane on most days however,or he made himself appear to be insane really
After getting her books out and making sure she had a clear escape route after this next comment, she moved closer to him. A small smile was on her face as she looked up at him.
"well, I have a pink taco." She winked.
Quickly, she disappeared in the crowd, leaving him at her locker. Kori successfully made it in her English class without him catching her. There relationship was special, and it was something she wasn't willing to give up easily. Groaning softly, she settled in her seat and crossed her legs. English was her worst subject. There was something about writing papers that she just couldn't do. Her argument was that she spoke English; she didn't need a class on it.
drake's face flamed up at the comment"i hate it when she does that"he muttered to himself as we quickly jogged to his AP anatomy and Physiology class and sat down.drake was a genius in science. it was one of his better subjects and usually lifted his mood. the reason it lifted his mood was so he didnt feel hopeless despair in pre-calculus,which he sucked at.history he wasn't bad with and he was also in AP literature for english class
The day was finally over. Kori waited outside of Drake's class for him. This afternoon was going to be fun. She smirked; a glint of mischief on her eyes. As she waited the ache of her feet made her realize why she rarely ever wore heels. At least Drake would give her a massage later. When he came out, she linked arms with him.
"So, where are you treating me to lunch, and am I allowed to get clothes to stay at your house tonight.. orrr will I just have to stay there naked?" She teased. "I think you'd like that too much." Her lips brushed his ear as she spoke. A huge grin crept across her face and once again she quickly hurried ahead of him and out the door towards their cars.
he raced after her"wait!"he complained"are you going to drop you car off first or just leave it here for the weekend?its friday so i think they close off the lot"he reminded her as he stretched.his brown domo shirt stretched tight against the toned muscles under the fabric"so what are we doing?"he asked.he crossed his arms as he waited for an answer,his steel blue eyes still showing his perpetual amusement
"I'm going to drop it off at home. I really don't want to risk being towed. Dad would have my ass." Kori nodded then quickly kissed the corner of Drake's lips before slipping into her car and driving home. She wasn't planning on getting clothes for the night; the idea of being naked or wearing one of his shirts. After the car was parked in the driveway, she walked to Drake's house.
There was no point in knocking since his mom was like in love with her. Without saying anything, Kori trotted up the stairs to his room while texting one of her friend; she closed the door with her foot then took a place on his bed. She had been on his bed several times but how comfortable it was ceased to amaze her. Tossing her phone to the side then sighing, Kori laid back on the bed.
drake sat up,putting his DS aside and grinned"dont i always?"he teased"i mean it isnt like my heart doesn't pine for you whenever we are apart"drake grinned and got on his knees"kori,kori...where for art thou kori?Deny thy father and refuse thy name; Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And you will no longer be alone"he proclaimed,purposely mauling shakespeare to prove a point.then he sat back down and yawned"im making some ramen right now..do you want any?"
At first the idea of him proposing passed by her mind, but how ludicrous was that? As he began to semi quote Shakespeare, she raised an eyebrow with an unimpressed look. Of course she found it insanely adorable, but would she let him know? Psh.. no. How could she? Yeah.. she liked him.. Yeah.. they teased each other. Maybe there would be something in the future.
"Ramen? You think I want Ramen?"She joked then nodded. "I would love Ramen." Kori kissed his forehead then settled back on the bed. "How about you just serve me the rest of the night?"
