Love me Akira

Running through the city, weaving from rooftop to rooftop avoiding the large knives that could split a house in half.

"I TOLD YOU TO USE YOUR SHIELD TO MINIMIZE DAMAGE AROUND YOU" yelled the commander at the base while dodging in the large humanoid machine.

"I KNOW, GET OFF MY BACK, YOU CAN SEE HOW ARE FAST THEY ARE" Akira exclaiming as the screams intensify down below."

"ANYWAYS USE YOUR SHIELD YOU'LL BE KILLED. DONT YOU FORGET THIS ISN'T A SIMULATION AKIRA," the commander furiously replied through the headset.

"Sigh, FINE BUT YOU KNOW HOW LONG IT’LL TA-" she growled as she took a knife to the chest where she was held of the large mecha.

"DAMN, WHY IS SHE SO USELESS? If she thought about training more than trying to fight with us we would have won today! SEND UNIT 4 OUT TO THE BATTLEFIELD"the commander yelled frustrated, not hiding his disgust for the girl at all.

Akira looking scattered suddenly woke up in bed surrounded by her small trashy apartment.

"Today is going to be shit!" she yelled jumping out of bed feeling around her body trying to find any wounds from the battle, “OF COURSE, IT HAD TO BE MY LEFT ARM!" Feeling her new arm attached from the elbow, the skin was red around the elbow but more down her arm was lighter as if she hasn’t been outside anytime recently but compared to the rest of her body it looked sickly.

” ugh, the arm is all tingly,” she thought as she fell back into bed. "Why do I have to go to school even though I’m protecting your asses. Man cut me some slack!" she said with a sad face getting ready for school. Akira Sossi was a cute girl with average height, brown hair, and green eyes captivating anyone who didn’t know her personality.

“Oh shit the time,” she said worriedly

Walking into the room of lockers seeing everyone murmuring about her failure on the recent events.

"LEAVE YOU MONSTER YOU KILLED MY WHOLE FAMILY!" a boy crying in the crowd of people who hate the destruction of the mecha's they create in the name of protection.

"SO! I DON'T SEE YOU TRYING TO STOP THE XANTHOS!” She yelled at the top of her lungs loud enough to silence everyone in the room.

“Geez you could be nicer,” said a girl to the boy.

“Man, why does everyone hate me so much?” thinking sorrowfully as she heads to the classroom.

The bell clanged and the teacher walked in.

"Good morning everyone, it's your teacher Miss. English!" said in a sing-song voice trying to start the day right but the room was half-asleep. "Wow, you guys sound so sad on this joyful day for we have a new student!" still in her happy tone that filled the room

"... Why is someone coming at the end of the year?" the class rep asked the teacher puzzled why someone would come now

Well, his family came from afar and this time of year was the best for him. "Her upbeat voice started to get annoying" Well… come in Mr. Harper," she said while welcoming the student coming in.

He was a well-groomed 5"10' male my age, had brown hair and blue eyes, kinda handsome in our school uniform.

"Hello my name is Matthew Harper, I was born from the Faroe Islands, it's in between the UK and abridged from Denmark but I moved to Paris because of the alien invasion that destroyed the general area of the UK!"

"WOAH" exclaimed the whole class

"How did you escape?" someone yelled through the chaos of children

"My parents were working at the robotics lab a little when it happened" concluded Matthew as everyone had pure awe and interest in the new boy they couldn’t stop the questions.

"OK, OK, talk to him after class about it after Ok everyone!" she said to quiet everyone quickly.

"Aaaw" with the unification of everyone they could start class.

"Mathew go sit by Akira because of your predicament" advised Miss. English

"Ok, Miss" Noted Mathew as he sat down. " Nice me meet you, Miss Akira," he said as he reached out his hand

"Fuck off" uttered Akira as she slapped his hand away.

“Aaw don't be like that because I'll be with you for a looong time,” he said with a cheeky smile on his face.

She blushed to wonder why he would say it like that“wha- what do you mean by that idiot”.

“Haha nothing” Mathew chimed in really quickly so not alert to the teacher.
