Hey! Jupiterchan here! I'm going to give you a little short story that I wrote for the first chapter so that you can see some of my writing!
(side note: the short story is not related to BNHA, or anything at all for that matter, it's just to show you what I can do!)
I sighed a breath of relief as I inhaled the sweet smells of our towns small cafe. I picked up my coffee cup and took a long sip, relishing in the peace of the moment. A voice suddenly disrupted my peace.
“It’s been a while,” it said. My coffee cup froze halfway up to my lips as I analyzed the voice. I know I recognized it from somewhere. Then it hit me. My cup crashed to the ground, shattering on the slick tile floor. I slowly turned around to face them.
“Noah,” I said breathily. And there he was, standing in the middle of the cafe wearing a black hoodie and blue ripped jeans. He had dark bags under his eyes, it looked like he hadn’t slept in ages, his black hair making it look like he just rolled out of bed. My words got caught in my throat as I tried to speak, say something, anything, but he just looked at me with his big, dark eyes.
“Hey Eli,” he said. My eyes shone with tears. He was… really here. I thought he was dead. Two years ago he went missing, and the police had found what was supposedly his body in a lake outside of town.
“You - you’re not dead?” I cried, choking slightly on my words. He shook his head before coming over and wrapping his arms around me, pulling me into his chest. I buried my face in his chest, breathing in the earthy smells he had on him.
“Where have you been?” I sobbed. He wrapped his arms around my shoulders, picking my bookbag up off my chair and steering me out of the cafe.
“I only want to explain it once in full detail,” he said slowly. I looked up at him and realized what he was saying. Leo and Axel. My other two boyfriends. Noah was our boyfriend too, before he… disappeared. I nodded and started dragging him by the hand in the direction of our apartment. It was only one block away. I jogged up two flights of stairs and pulled out my key unlocking the door. I dragged him into the living room, tears still spilling down my face.
“Wait here,” I said, turning on my heel and walking into the bedroom. It was still quite early, so Axel and Leo were still passed out in bed, neither were the morning type.
“Guys,” I said shaking them. “We have a guest.”
They both groggily got out of bed before they both realized I was crying.
“Eli!” Leo shouted, wrapping his arms tightly around me. “Why are you crying?”
My hand shakily pointed toward the door to the living room, where Noah was still sitting on the couch. Leo took my hand, dragging me out of the bedroom, Axel on our heels. They both gasped in shock, Leo dropping my hand to cover his mouth.
“Is this some kind of prank?” Axel said. “Is this some kind of goddamn prank?”
I squeezed his hand. It wasn’t a prank. It was a miracle.
Once we all settled down and the tears were no longer falling as desperately, Noah told us his story.
“Well, you all know that my parents were killed, and on the same night I was found missing. I had been distraught, and had gone to visit my aunt who I’m really close to a few towns over. I had gotten on the bus and it had been a normal ride, but when I got to my aunts house, there were police there, and my aunt and cousins were found dead. I didn’t know what to do, so I booked a night at a nearby hotel because no busses were going back to my house quite yet. In the middle of the night, someone broke into my hotel room and kidnapped me, bringing me to this abandoned warehouse. Apparently, their family’s business was my parent’s businesses biggest rival. They wanted to kill off my parents and their siblings, hoping that they could then buy the company. I wasn’t at the house when my parents murder happened, so they had tracked me down incase I had any valuable knowledge about the workings of the office. I didn’t, but they were sure I did, so they tried to torture it out of me. I still have a couple scars.”
Noah lifted up his shirt to reveal his stomach, a couple of thin lines that were obviously made by a knife marring the skin.
“After they realized I was useless in the information department, they decided to force me to be the ‘maid’ at their office. They didn’t want to let me go in case I told anyone about their ‘master plan’. It was only last week that the police found me, battered and bruised in the basement where I was supposed to be sleeping. I’ve been answering the officer's questions for the past few days, and I begged for them to keep it out of the news until I told you guys.”
The room filled with silence.
“I’m so sorry,” I whispered. “I’m sorry we didn’t even try to look for you.”
He pulled me into a hug, burying his face in my hair. “It’s ok, I’m here now aren’t I?”
I could feel Axel and Leo move into the hug as we all savored our moment of peace, all four of us together again.
