Okay...here's a preview of a story. It's a Rocky Horror fanfic (At least I've been writing less since I have two stories going now...) and everyone are teenagers. :) Not a full chapter, but it's a preview of the first chapter. Enjoy~
Chapter 1: Packing
Columbia groaned. "But mom!" Magenta rolled her eyes. She reached for Riff Raff's hand, squeezing it when she found it, looking up at him. "I wanna go!" Columbia had spent the last ten minutes trying to convince her mom to let her go to summer camp like everyone else.
"I said no, Coco! And that's final!" Columbia's mom looked too young to have a fifteen year old daughter. She was only thirty years old but looked like she was in her late twenties. Her hair, which was originally brown, was yellow and it barely reached her shoulders. She had big, bright green eyes.
"Please? Magenta said that both her and Riff Raff were going! Janet, Brad, Frank and even Rocky said they were going. Please mom? Please?" Columbia cried, clasping her hands together and staring up at her mom. Her mom looked at Magenta and Riff Raff, expecting a denial or some support.
"Is she lying about you two going to camp?" She asked. Columbia looked at her friends, separating her hands and running one through her cherry red hair nervously, twirling a strand around her finger. 'Please,' she mouthed toward Magenta, who looked up at Riff Raff again.
"Yes, ma'am," he murmured, squeezing Magenta's hand. Columbia's mom looked back at Columbia.
"Fine. You can go, Columbia," she smiled. Columbia immediately began cheering, jumping up and down. She turned to Riff Raff and Magenta.
"Go ahead and head toward Janet's house. I'll be there as soon as I can," Columbia said, running up the stairs. Magenta looked up at Columbia's mom, nodding politely. She hesitated before leaving, pulling Riff Raff out the door with her. They slowly walked down the road in the general direction of Janet Weiss' house.
"Riff," Magenta spoke in a soft voice. "Yes, Magenta?" Riff Raff asked, looking at his younger sister. She was a few inches shorter than he was. He let go of Magenta's hand and reached up, gently patting her mass of frizzy auburn hair as they walked. Magenta stayed silent, as if she forgot why she said his name to begin with.
"You're always so quiet," Riff Raff commented in a whisper. He smiled at her when she looked up at him. Her mouth twitched, as if she was about to smile, but she didn't smile. She rarely smiled unless she was alone in her room.
"I don't feel ze need to talk…nobody understands vhat I'm thinking anyvays," she shrugged. "It's easier if I stay silent…nobody can laugh at me zat vay."
"I love the sound of your voice. It's pretty and calming. Like the beach. Or the gentle rustle of leaves in the spring," Riff Raff commented. Magenta's mouth twitched again, but she did smile. Riff Raff's heart melted when he saw Magenta's usually somber face brighten with a smile. He stopped walking, hearing footsteps behind them.
"Hey, you two." The smile quickly disappeared from Magenta' face when the siblings realized who was following them.
"Frank. We're going to Janet's house to wait for Columbia. Do you want to walk with us?" Riff Raff asked politely, expecting an insult and decline from the boy behind them.
"Riff," Magenta hissed softly. "I don't vant anyone to valk vith us." Frank snickered.
"How is it that you have an accent, but nobody else in your family does?" He asked. Magenta whipped her head in his direction, glaring daggers. He took a sudden step back, staring at Magenta with wide eyes for a moment before shaking his head. "Forget I asked."
"Do you want to join us?" Riff Raff repeated his question, managing to hide his annoyance with Frank. "And you know that Magenta is insecure about how she speaks." Magenta rolled her eyes.
"Eh…whatever. Let's go," Frank shrugged, shoving his way between the siblings and waiting. "Are we going to start walking?" He demanded, grabbing them both by the wrists and dragging them until they began walking on their own. Magenta closed her eyes while they walked, blindly reaching for her brother's hand.
Frank walked ahead of them, not bothering to wait at all. Riff Raff and Magenta began falling behind, peacefully strolling, hand-in-hand. They had no reason to rush to Janet's house. They weren't leaving for camp for a while.
"Will you two lovebirds hurry it up?" Frank huffed, crossing his arms over his chest. He turned around and began walking backwards, watching Riff Raff and Magenta. Magenta tightened her grip on Riff Raff's hand, trying to calm herself down.
"We have no reason to rush, Frank. If you want to rush, go ahead and run off. Magenta and I want to spend some time together just walking," Riff Raff said.
"You two think that nobody notices the glances at school or how you're always holding hands. But I'll tell ya, everyone notices. And it's disgusting," Frank stuck his tongue out, emphasizing how disgusting it was. Magenta frowned, taking her hand from Riff Raff's. Frank stopped walking as Magenta walked closer to him.
She stood on her toes, trying to even their heights. Frank was taller than Riff Raff, making him even taller than she was. When she managed to reach the height she wanted she scowled. "Leave Riff and I alone, Frank. If you don't, I vill rip your trachea out of your little neck and skin you alive. Ve aren't in love, ve aren't a couple. Ve are brother and sister. Now go!" She screeched at him. He took a few steps back and frowned.
"Spoiled brat!" Frank cried before turning around and running off. Magenta turned back to Riff Raff and smiled innocently. She tucked some of her hair behind her ear in an attempt to appear more innocent. Riff Raff laughed.
"You have serious issues, Magenta," he said, walking up to stand next to her. They returned to their peaceful stroll towards Janet's house.
