It was a beautiful and sunny friday afternoon on Willow Elementary School and a group of three young girls were chatting and walking. The first one, on the center, had light red hair in pigtails and olive green eyes. The second one, on the left, had brown hair and blue eyes with glasses, the third one, on the right had braided black hair and yellow eyes. They were getting out of school and a group of boys were playing basketball near there.
"...And then, I rejected his fifth love letter!" Said the girl on the middle whose name was Kimberly.
"Ha! Well done, Kimmy!" Replied the girl on the left. "Did he sent another?"
All of the love letters that Kimmy recieved were from Noelle's brother, Bradley Harper, who Kimmy labeled as an "idiot". He was playing basketball with his friends at the basketball court that was just in the school's front door. They were playing fine and the two girls that went with Kimmy stood there to see all of the boys playing.
"Girls! Please, Let's go! The hot tub is gonna get cold!" She shouted. "Emma? Vivianne? GIRLS!"
"Sorry Kimmy! The hot tub can wait!" Said Emma, cleaning up a bit her glasses.
"Vivi?" Asked Kimmy.
"Sorry Kimmy, I just love basketball." Replied Vivianne, twirling her long, black hair.
"Gaah! I thought you were MY friends!" Replied a red, pissed off Kimmy.
"Why are YOU talking about US like if we were your property? HUH?" Shouted Emma.
"Because you are supposed to follow me ANYWHERE! I'm not gonna be your friends anymore! And without me you won't have any popularity! Juliet was right! You guys are idiots!"
"IDIOTS? IDIOTS?" Shouted Vivianne "Remember I'm the president of the class and without you, we already were popular! Wanna know what do I think about you?"
"YES" Shouted Kimmy. "Bring it on, I won't care!"
"Fine! I think you're a bratty, whiny, snobby little baby who can't do anything alone! I may not be born with a silver spoon in my mouth, but at least I know I'm better than you and your stupid high school sister! Just because you're the daughter of Catherine White it doesn't implies that you're better than everyone! DID YOU LISTEN?"
Vivianne wouldn't usually stick up for herself since Emma did it most of the time, and because of that, Kimmy was annoyed.
"FINE! FINE! I don't wanna see you guys anymore! GAAH!" She shouted and ran to her house.
"Tomorrow, she's gonna be begging to us to come back to her." Said Emma from far behind.
"I bet." Replied Vivianne and they high fived.
After a long school day, Bradley entered to his room to cut some pictures for his homework. Suddenly Noelle entered to his room.
"Quickly jerk, do you have my comb?" Said her sister.
"Whaat? Pfft. This thing is a natural beauty." Replied Bradley while touching his hair.
"You have my comb. OH IT IS ON!" Shouted Noelle taking off her lavender shirt, revealing her tank top. Then she threw herself at Bradley. "HYAAA!"
"Okay, OKAY! Have your comb! It's at the bathroom!" After that, Noelle stood up and went to Bradley's bathroom.
After she stood up, Bradley went and gave her a kick on her legs that made Noelle fall.
"NOT!" He laughed.
"Damn it little dwarf!" Screamed Noelle. "Respect your big sister!"
"Uhh, yeah! Like if you respected me!" He grabbed Noelle's shirt and opened the window. "I'll throw it!"
"NONONONO! It's made from the finest cotton ever found in the whole world!" Shouted Noelle. "PLEAAAAASE!! Can I do something? What do you want?"
"I have an idea!" Bradley smirked.
"NO! THE BUNNY SUIT NO!" Noelle was frightened.
"It isn't a bad idea. But you know any Juliet White?"
"Juliet White, huh? Yes, she's the head of the student council. Why?"
"Because I'd love to get a date with-"
"WHAT?" Screamed Noelle. "She's 17!"
"No idiot!" Bradley facepalmed. "I want to get a date with her sister! She studies with me!"
"Uh. Well, let me see what I can do. Now give me my shirt."
"Fine." Bradley rolled his eyes.
As Noelle put on her shirt again someone knocked the door and Noelle went down to open the door. It was Grace, who knocked in a certain way so they could recognize her. She was ready to go to Polka Dot Boutique to work. Noelle put her name tag on and went with Grace to the mall where her aunt's boutique was located. In the way they found Leah, and the latter went with the blonde and the brunette. In the mall there were Ivonne and Emille looking at a shelf on the new branch of Ontario Pets that opened that wednesday. It had pet care objects, a new special soap for dogs and lots of other stuff.
"Sissy!" Shouted Leah. "Wanna come to Polka Dot?"
"Yeah, yeah! Just wait!" Stated her twin sister. "Maybe I can buy new contacts there!"
The three girls went to Polka Dot Boutique while talking.
"Your sister uses contacts?" Asked Noelle.
"Yeah, when we lived in Montreal she used to have big and somewhat funny glasses. But when she moved with my mother here, she started to use contacts. Then I moved to Toronto and here we are! She should start to use glasses like Cassandra's though."
"Cassy. Have you heard news about Cassy?" Added Grace.
"I think she moved to Ottawa." Replied Leah.
"OTTAWA?" Shouted the two girls. "Seriously?"
"Heck, I don't even know if it's a joke!" Stated Leah.
Even though Cassandra was more of a joker type, she couln't joke over something like that. However Noelle had the hope that Cassandra stayed there in Toronto since she was, apart from Grace and now Leah, her best friend. She hoped that was a joke. When she looked, they were inside Polka Dot boutique and Emille was there with Ivonne.
She took her place on the cash reigister while Grace and her aunt went to order some of the shoe boxes.
"Noelle, can you please come here?" Asked Ivonne.
"Sure." The brunette said.
Noelle went there and Ivonne carried her to a corner. "So you like Logan, heh?"
"What? L-Logan!?" Shouted a blushed Noelle. "He's just my friend, idiot."
"Your words may say that, but your blush on your cheeks says otherwise." Replied Ivonne.
"Damn it..." Muttered Noelle.
"AND DON'T GET NEAR HIM HARPER!" Shouted Ivonne. "BECAUSE HE'S MINE!"
Noelle just stood there while Ivonne went out of the store. She couldn't believe it! She now had a rival in love, what never happened to her. She still had to get the date with Juliet's sister for Bradley and she didn't appear. Anyways she had an idea.
"Aunt Phoebe!" She shouted.
"Can I take some of the coupons? I want to give them to the students this Monday."
"Fine! Take some of them!"
After a good weekend of delicious food and fights with her brother, it was now Monday and Noelle's phone alarm rang "7:00 A.M"
"Phone, shut up." Muttered a tired Noelle. Even after that, the phone didn't shut up. "Gaaaah. Fine."
She got her phone that was on the bedside table and stopped the alarm. Then she went to her closet.
Noelle's bedroom was the second biggest of the house. She had light pink walls with heart stickers all over it, and a chalkboard with photos of her friends. Her bed was in one of the corners and it had her strawberry plushie and one pillow.At the right of it was a bedside table with a small lamp. Her closet was white and big, and then it had a nice rug over the floor where her piggy slippers lied. Her bathroom was big too. Noelle got her uniform and a pair of socks, then went to the bathroom to dress.
After putting on her shoes and brushing her hair, Noelle went down to eat a plate of bagels.
"G' Morning mom!" She smiled. "I'm hungry. And you?"
"Of course I am. But here are your bagels, I'll eat later."
Noelle smiled to her mother and ate her bagels before getting to the door and saying "Bye Bye!"
After getting out of her house's door, she went walking until she stopped to answer a call on her phone. It was from Grace.
"Gal, so Logan kissed you?" Grace squealed. "EE! No way no way!! He kissed my baby? How was it?!"
"Please Grace. It was on my cheek. And it was because I saved him."
"NO! Kiss is kiss! Tell me how you felt dearling!"
"Well, I- I- I- I just... Aahhh... Felt li-"
Suddenly Logan appeared out of nowhere. Noelle didn't saw him until he greeted her.
"Hi 'Elle!" He smiled.
Suddenly Noelle started to shiver and became red, signal that she was nervous. She asked herself if she would be like that every time Logan walked past her!
"Noelle? Where are you?" Asked Grace by the phone. Noelle didn't hear her since she dropped the phone on her bag.
"Noelle? What if something bad happened to her? It's early, so whatever..." She scribbled into her purse to find the pendant Leah gave her the week before. "I can't believe we have the fate of the world on our hands..."
After she got her pendant she heard a loud scream. "UGH! GET OUT OF HERE! WHAT IS A TIGER DOING IN THE STREETS?"
Grace touched the golden center of her crown pendant. "Blossom Power, come to me!"
She felt all warm and happy as she spinned on the green background while her clothes appeared. A burst of energy made her body feel even more powerful. her crown appeared, and after she put it on she was in the street, trying to find the tiger the strange person was shouting at...
When she found it, she summoned her fans. She remembered Leah told her to put her hands on her crown's golden gems and feel the burst of energy again. So she did it and her fans appeared.
"Great!" She shouted while closing her fans. "Now let's go."
She remembered Noelle. Now there were two problems. But as she kept running she saw no tiger in sight. So she went to see Noelle until she bumped into a cloaked figure.
"Hey! Get out Grace!" Said the figure. Grace saw a star on the other girl's dress, just like Leah's but in purple and orange.
"How do you know my name!?" Grace proceeded to take the cloak off the girl. She had wavy black hair and a mask covered her eyes.
"IDIOT!" The girl tried to put on her cloak but Grace opened her fans and paralyzed her.
Grace took carefully the mask off the girl. She had purple eyes. She couldn't believe it! She was nothing more and nothing less than...
"CASSANDRA! Wha-What the heck?" It could be seen that Grace didn't like to swear and used slight terms. She closed her fans and Cassandra finally could move again.
"Grace... You... Idiot! Why did you take off my cloak... I need to go secretly..."
"But Cassy? Are you homeschooled? Did you change school? I thought you moved to-"
Cassandra put her finger on Grace's mouth. "Shut up! I abandoned school so I could dedicate full-time on being a Keeper of the Blossom."
"Why did you do that?"
"Because my realm of origin needs to get rid of the monsters in order to keep balance in the world!"
"But... But THAT'S no excuse for leaving school!"
"I do what I want with my life!"
"HUH? I'm sorry, but MY own mther, and my mother alone, gave me a solid education and told me not to skip school!"
"Says the girl who is arriving late for school."
"YEAH, BECAUSE OF YOU!"
"Whatever. My parents aren't never here so I can do whatever I want."
"You live with your aunt! You are not alone."
"Yes! But she doesn't care about me!"
"Still. Don't skip school for nonsense like that!" She opened her fans.
"FINE! If you wanna fight... WE'LL FIGHT."
As Cassandra sharpened the edges of her mask Grace was ready to prove her point right. She didn't care. She would still get early for school, since she was only 3 minutes late.
"Mirage Masquerade Starbust!" She tossed her mask just like a boomerang, pointing to Grace.
The sharp edges of the mask were about to it Grace when the latter made a barrier. They kept fighting until Cassandra received a stratch on her back.
"Hey, you were supposed to be allies, not enemies. I tought you should fight me after you harmed all of my beautiful kitties."
Cassandra turned to see who was there. It was a purple haired catgirl with a whip on her hand.
"Kittens should be in the shelters, not in the streets fool!" Shouted Grace. "Bliss-"
"Stop right there!" The catgirl stood up and gave Grace an electric shock which made the latter fall on the floor. "Who is the kitten now?"
"You... Idiot..." Were the last words Grace could say.
Cassandra looked at the catgirl while sharpening the edges of her mask again.
"Oh no. Don't even dare to touch Grace again..." Cassandra started to cry a bit. "She might be in my way and everything, but she's my friend!"
She concentrated her energy and threw her mask to the catgirl. "MASQUERADE MOON EXPLOSION!"
The mask spinned and then created a bright light that exploded. The catgirl fell to the floor, then muttered, "I'll come back, and you won't be able to defeat me..."
The catgirl dissapeared, and Grace woke up. "What happened?"
"Nothing important, but better go to school, it's late."
"Dammit... I'm gonna get punished!"
"Just teleport!" Said Cassandra while lifting her. "Touch the four gems in the top, ten shout "Teleport to homeroom or something..."
"Ok." She got her pendant, touched the gems and shouted: "Teleport to Homeroom!"
And there she was, in homeroom. The problem? There was no one in there. She looked at the time. 8:20 a.m.
The mysterious catgirl was in the intersection between an organic shop and Willow Elementary School. She morphed into a white cat with green eyes and climbed up the wall of the latter. After that, she looked around, when she saw a few bushes. She jumped in them, which were around the playground and the basketball court, until she finally made her way inside the actual school building. It was almost the time for the schoolbell to ring in signal of the classes starting. Nobody suspected anything about her, just a regular white cat who got lost. It was 8:29:38, in no time the schoolbell was gonna ring, so she could enter in action. She had detected a Blossom Princess. Her powers were not awakened yet, though. She had to end with her powers even before anyone could do something. Altough, that Cassandra girl could appear. She was very powerful for being this time of the day.
Just before the schoolbell rang, the white cat morphed again, this time, in the shape of a tall, blonde girl about twelve years old. There was supposed to be a new student, though she never came, so the catgirl's plan was gonna be perfect. She had to end up with whoever had that power and exploit it so she could be more powerful.
As the students started going to the rooms, she went with the flow and followed what happened to be Emma and Vivianne to the 5-B classroom.
"Well everyone, stand up and let's give a warm welcome to Ruth Marsh." The teacher told all of the students, who stood up.
"Welcome Ruth!" Said the students in unison.
"Welcome Ruth, please tell us something about you!" Smiled the teacher.
"Eh, hi! My name is Ruth Marsh, I like tea parties, my favourite music group is Cinnamon Spring and my favourite colour is light yellow! I hope having a lot of friends, too!" Said, very naturally, the catgirl, who took the form of Ruth.
