Chapter 1: New Kid in Midheart
He was sleeping it off, yesterday his family moved over to their new house in Midheart. The room was quiet big, it had a desk with a computer on the corner, a sun ray was passing through the shades that were put over the window and it struck the computer screen. There was a huge purple rug on the wooden floor, a closet on the corner and various portraits he hung in his room.
The kid was sleeping on his soft bed, he had a calm smile on his sleeping face, his red hair was coming out of his sleeping hat, he was wearing blue pajamas and he was snoring a little.
“Hit with a Gatling Gun” he yelled in his sleep and threw his fist in the air. “No, I have to dodge it, dodge it!” he yelled and roll on the bed; this made him fall on the floor and it made a loud bam noise.
“Damn it, this floor’s harder than I thought” the kid patted his head and got up from the floor. “This room’s pretty dark, I better take the shade off” he walked over to the window and took the shade off so that the sun light could come into the bedroom. “Now that’s better” he smiled widely and stretched.
“Well better get ready, I got a big day today” he said and walked over to the closet. He took out an aqua blue jacket and a red shirt; he got a pair of blue jeans out and a pair of red sneakers.
He took off his pajama hat and revealed his well combed red hair, his eyes were brown and he had a small beauty mark on his right face. “Better get down” he looked over at his watch and started running out the room.
“Hey Eric, did you sleep well” Eric turned to look at the girl that came out of the room next to his, a small desk with a flower base was separating the two. She was a tall woman with a long black hair that was put in two ponytails, she was wearing a yellow button shirt and she was wearing a blue long skirt; she also had a pair of round glasses and a red bow tie on her neck.
“Hey Tama” Eric smiled and walked over to his sister. “You and dad are going to Neobrain for your first day right?” he asked and smiled at his sister.
“Yep, but you shouldn’t talk little brother” she narrowed her eyes at him. “You have your first day at school today” she messed up his head and walked down the stairs.
“Yeah guess you’re right” Eric started following her down the stairs. The living room was big, it had a kitchen attacked to it with an oven and a pan, there was a desk in the middle with four seats put on it, a huge wide screen TV was overlooking the couches and sofas that were on the living room; there was a bathroom near the front door with a closet next to it, there was also a terrace window that took you straight out and into the parking lot of the house.
“Morning you too” Eric’s father said, he had a short straight silver hair, he was wearing a pair of glasses just like Tama’s, he was wearing a purple long sleeve shirt and he had a dark blue sleeveless suit, he was wearing a pair of grey pants and brown moccasins. “Eric hope you’re ready for today” he said as he turned and smiled at Eric.
“Sure I’m dad, although I’m hungry too” Eric walked over to the kitchen. “Is breakfast ready?” he asked his mom, she was chopping some lettuce on the kitchen. Her mom turned around, she had a long red hair just like Eric’s, she was wearing a white shirt with a long red skirt, she had a yellow apron with a butterfly over her shirt; she also had green eyes and a pale white skin.
“Sure is” his mom grinned and look at Eric’s dad who was just getting in the kitchen. “But, I think you’re dad wants to give you something” she said and Eric walked up to his dad.
“Really, what is it?” Eric asked while he looked at his dad with a look of amazement. His dad coughed and got out something from his pocket, it was a small cub with different colors on each side, and there were also pictures of different parts of the body on each side.
“Well, it isn’t really a surprise, you’ve been wanting this for such a long time and since we didn’t celebrated your birthday” his dad gave him the cub and smiled at him. “Congrats Eric, you got your first Custom Robo, a Ray MKII to be exact” he raised his finger and shook Eric’s hand.
“Thanks dad” Eric smiled at his dad and took the cube. “I can’t believe it, I finally have my own Custom Robo” Eric smiled widely and tried his best to contain himself from jumping.
“Yep, I figured, you just turned fourteen and you’re starting out in a new school, so why don’t start with something new” his dad walked over to the desk and sat down. “Now, I’m starving and Tamara and I need to get to work, so let’s eat” he clapped his hands and grabbed his fork and knife.
“Yeah, we better hurry” Tama sat down too. Eric looked over at the desk and sat together with his mom.
After they were done with breakfast Eric came out of his house. It was a big house from outside too, it was mostly white, it had a big backyard and a garage entrance on the right, and they had a small attic on the second floor just above Tama’s bedroom.
“This place doesn’t look half bad” Eric shrugged and started walking down the street. There were a lot of houses, big and small, there were people greeting each other while they were walking; even though his family moved the day before they still greeted him.
Eric walked past the houses and started getting closer to his new school. Two kids ran past him and went into the school as they past through the gate. “It must be late already, I better hurry” Eric tugged in his backpack and ran over to the gate of the school.
Eric walked past the big red brick gate. But his gaze was focused on the school itself, there was a huge school building in the middle, it was a huge white building with a lot of windows, it had a red roof that was shaped like one of the roofs a Greek temple has, it had a big H in the middle.
That wasn’t everything there was on campus, there was a huge blue round building with a dark blue metal roof, this was obviously the gym, and there was also another small building a few meters next to the school. Right there where Eric was there were a lot of benches; although most people were sitting on the grass. There was a girl directing people into the school, a boy showing off his new Robot to everyone and a girl about to kiss a boy holding a Robot Cube.
“Wow, there must be a lot of people inside” Eric gulped at the thought of having to live with this people for four years of school. “Okay Eric, calm down, it’s not like something bad is going to happen right” he said to himself, but just gave a nervous laugh.
“Well guess I better get in already” Eric scratched his head and smiled widely, he looked back at the school and started walking in. The inside wasn’t so bad. The lockers were situated in another room; but the door was transparent so you could just walk in there through the walker, you didn’t even had to walk, you just got on it and it took you in there. A library was right next to the cafeteria; the doors were also transparent.
Finally another door that took you outside, although it let you to the small building that he saw outside. Eric looked in front of him, the reception desk was right there. The woman at the reception was filing some papers when she looked over at him.
“Can I help you?” she asked without turning away from her keyboard, her typing speed was great if you would consider it.
“Um…I’m Eric Geary and I’m the new transferred student” Eric said while scratching his chin. The receptionist finally paid attention to him and grabbed a small emblem from her desk, the emblem had the same H as the building and it looked like a star with golden wings.
“And here’s a map of the school in case you get lost” she gave him a small book with all of the rooms and routes on it.
“Thanks, class B right” Eric asked as he looked back at the receptionist; she nodded and went back to her typing. “Well thank you miss helpful” Eric said once he was out of sight and rolled his eyes.
Eric looked down at his pants, a cell phone was hanging on them; it only had a scroll arrow and the numbers, but it had two metal stick, once you said the word “On” a screen would lit on and you would see the person you’re talking to. “Dad also gave me garage for my robot” Eric sat down on the floor and got out a small portable device, it was yellow and it had two screens (kinda like a Nintendo DS), it had a pen container and a cube container where you could put your cube once you shrunk it.
“Oh right, class!” Eric threw everything as he started scurrying around the hallway; although he had to run back to get everything back in his backpack. “Stupid, stupid, stupid” he said while slapping himself on the forehead and running.
He had to go up a floor, but he finally made it to his classroom. A fat man was waiting for him there; he was wearing an aqua blue suit with the Midheart High symbol on the left; although the shirt didn’t fit his fat body so some of the buttons were torn off. He had a short hair that was combed with two sides, although it looked more like a mustache on the head.
“Oh, you must be Eric, it’s nice to meet you” the man said as he shook Eric’s hand. “My name Mr. Stubbs and I’ll be your homeroom teacher” he gave him a sweet smile and started opening the door.
“All right, Stubb’s not even in!” Eric turned around a girl almost crashed with him; she had a long brown hair that was tied on a long pony tail, she had a black zipped shirt with two buttons on both sides, she had a pair of small pin shorts and she had a pink and purple hat on her head. “Out of the way” she pushed Eric aside and ran in.
“What the heck was that?” Eric looked over at the door that slammed back and he gave it a worried smile.
“That’s just Liv, don’t worry you’ll get used to her” Stubbs sighed and helped Eric inside. “Now, we better introduce you to the class” he walked in together with Eric.
The classroom looked normal. It had at least ten desks; each of them with two seats and two computers. There weren’t any windows since their classroom was in the middle of it, all of the students were either playing or talking, none of them really focusing on Eric.
“Class we have a new student today” Stubbs said as he grabbed Eric’s shoulder; the whole class turned to look at Eric immediately. “His name’s Eric Geary and he just transferred from Robot city” Eric gave them a cheerily laugh and waved.
“So, where do I sit exactly?” Eric asked as he looked around the room for a free seat.
“You can seat over here” Eric turned around. There was a kid pointing at the empty seat next to him. He had a long straight brown hair that got up to his eyes, he was wearing a pair of oval glasses, he had a green T-shirt with a black undershirt; you couldn’t really see the undershirt cause it was inside the T-shirt, but the sleeves were visible. He had a pair of blue jeans and brown sneakers; he also had a pair of black gloves on his hands.
“Really, thanks man” Eric smiled and sat on the seat next to the kid. “Wow, you guys use computers, that’s so cool” he booted up his small laptop.
“My name’s Dennis by the way” Dennis smiled and stretched out his hand. “Nice to meet you Eric” he said, Eric smiled back and they shook hands.
“Same here Dennis” he said as they shook theirs hands. “Well, better start class” Eric turned back to his computer and then the bell rang.
“Well, that was a good class wasn’t it, and since you’re new we didn’t really had anything to do” Dennis laughed and put his hand behind his head. “Hey Eric, do you like Custom Robos?” he asked and looked at Eric with a questioning look.
“Hell yeah I do, I love them!” Eric smiled widely and grabbed his backpack. “Why do you ask?”
“You see, I’m in this Custom Robo team, and we’re having a tournament in a few days, but” Dennis was going to keep talking but Liv ran in at that moment.
“Dennis, what the hell are you doing, hurry” Liv grabbed Dennis’s hand and started running out of the classroom.
“Okay?” Eric had a confused look on his face while he looked at the spot where Dennis was. “Guess this school’s very…lively” he laughed and started walking out of the classroom.
Eric walked out of the school building and saw what was happening outside. Live and Dennis were having a discussion with another group of kids. The first kid was wearing a Karate robe and he had a spiky brown hair, he had blue eyes and a tan skin.
The second kid also had the same robe; except his was whiter than the other kid’s. He had a long messy black hair and had a short sleeve robe. The guy in the middle also had a robe; his was grey though. He was wearing a helmet boxers used on their fight, he also had a pair of green boxing gloves, he wasn’t wearing any shoes though.
“So Liv, are you guys gonna fight or what?” the one in the middle said with a cocky smile on his face. Liv just glared down at him and started clenching her fists.
“Of course we’re fighting Bull, Warren take him on!” Liv yelled to the kid that was behind her. Warren was wearing a yellow shirt with the picture of a cube on the middle, his hair was spiky on the front, and he was wearing a pair of green pants and blue shoes.
“Why me?” Warren started taking steps backwards with a nervous look on his face; he just got more nervous when he saw Liv’s furious face.
“WHY, WHY, cause you’re a member of our team and you have to suck it up and defend our name!” she barked in front of Warren’s face, this made him fall over. “Now, go!” she yelled again.
“Yeah about that” Warren got up and started scratching his chin. “Yeah I quit, I’m tired of being dragged around like a dog by you Liv, so see ya” he waved and ran off like a bullet.
“Coward!” Liv yelled on the distance; but Warren probably heard her cause he almost stopped. Bull started laughing.
“See what I mean, none of your teammates have the guts to fight, in fact to spare you from embarrassment, why don’t you join my team” Bull chuckled and looked at Liv with a cocky smile.
Live frowned and just flipped him off. “I wouldn’t join your team, ever, I don’t like idiots that think brawn’s better than brains, cause brain always wins” Liv nodded her head and smiled sternly at Bull.
“How the hell can that happen, you can’t pound the guts out of someone with your brain” Bull smirked. “It’s just stupid to even try.”
“That’s what I mean, you’re just clueless, Dennis take him out” Liv turned over to Dennis; who flinched as soon as he saw Liv’s face.
“Sure, I’ll try it” Dennis started to walk; but his legs were shaking so he almost fell over. “Prepare to suffer” he said in a scare tone as he pulled out his cube, although he almost dropped it.
“See, he’s too weak” Bull started looking around the crowd. “So, who’s willing to help this losers out!” he yelled.
Eric just clenched his fists, no one was even trying to step up and helped those guys. “I WILL” he yelled; everyone turned around and gave him a confused look.
“Hey, you’re the new kid, Eric right?” Liv asked as she walked over to Eric. “Do you seriously want to help” Eric nodded sternly and glared at Bull.
“Do you even have a Custom Robo?” Dennis asked Eric; Eric grabbed his cube and showed it to him. “The face of it is still shining” Dennis pointed at the red side of the cube that had a face on it. “You haven’t even done your Eye-Scan Test on it” Dennis frowned as he sulk on the floor.
“Well, he can do it right now, can’t you” Liv turned back to Eric; she seemed disappointed but hopeful at the same time.
“Yeah except I don’t know how?” Eric got his cube out and stared down at the face that was shining.
“Easy, touch the face, then you have to activate the robot and look right into its eyes” Liv explained while holding her finger up. “Now do it” she put her hands on her hip and waited for Eric to move on and do the eye scan.
Eric put the cube on the floor and pressed the button. The cube started glowing and it started unfolding, Eric took a step back but in the end he just kept his eyes uncovered.
A small figure started forming; it grew in size, although it just reached up to Eric’s leg. It looked like a human robot, it had a blue armor around its chest, its legs were white with blue on the waist, his arms were white two and his armor got up to his mouth, which was covered with a small mask, although you could see its red metallic hair. The robot floated over to Eric, although its eyes were closed.
“Now what?” Eric looked at the robot nervously; he didn’t really know what to do no matter how much he wanted to be a Commander. He looked at Liv; she rolled her finger, which meant Eric had to do the same. Eric rolled his finger and the robot turned around so that Eric could see its back. A small red spot was glowing. Eric started extending his finger; he gulped a few time, he didn’t really knew what would happen or if he would really make it. He finally pressed the button and the robot turned back around and opened its eyes.
Eric felt a course of energy going through him, it felt like if the Ray MKII was connecting itself with his brain, like if they were in each other’s brain. Eric finally came out of his trance and the Ray MKII went back inside the cube. “Good you’re ready” Liv giggled and then patted Eric’s shoulder. “You ready Bull” her face became an anger face as she turned over to look at Bull.
“Are you kidding me” Bull started laughing; everyone else that was in the crowd took a step back. “I’m not fighting a rookie, I’ll kill him, Terry you take over” Bull turned over to the kid with the spiky hair.
“Sure thing boss” Terry chuckled evilly as he looked at Eric. “I’ll crush this kid” he started straitening his fists. Eric looked at him sternly as the two of them walked over in between the two groups, they were on different sides as each of them enlarge their cube.
“Holloseum appear!” Terry cried and raised his cube, a desk formed virtually on the floor, it looked like one of those desk people use on virtual game, it had a place where you could put your hands and a place to hold the cube. Eric jumped once the Holloseum appeared.
“What the hell!” he yelled as he got up. “I heard about Holloseums just appearing portably, but I’ve never seen it” Eric started scanning the Holloseum.
“Concentrate Eric, you have to walk over to the Holloseum, put your cube in and then say Dive On!” Liv yelled. Eric walked over to the Holloseum at the same time as Terry. He put the cube in and then put his hands on it.
“Dive On!” he yelled as line of pink energy surrounded his body as he started to lose control of his body; he didn’t fell over cause the energy was keeping him up.
“Where am I?” Eric opened his eyes, everything was dark and he felt a little uncomfortable and he needed more space. Then everything started rolling and spinning. “What the heck’s happening!?” Eric yelled as he got launched out.
Then everything opened up and he felt his body better. He landed on the floor; it was different from the real floor, it was metallic and a little holographic. He got up there was a huge it had a white head with two glowing eyes, it had a red body with two cannons on the sides. “That must be a Cube Launcher” Eric gazed over at the Cube Launcher. Then he looked down, his body wasn’t his body, it was the Ray MKII’s. “I’m the robot” Eric started looking around again. “This is cool” he said.
Then he saw three bullets coming at him. Eric jumped up and flipped in the air, he landed behind a metal wall. “I see this must be the Holloseum” he said, it had a green floor and four walls; it had two boxes and a pedestal on the middle. Eric looked over at the source of the bullets. Terry’s robot was a Pike model, it had a purple armor all around its body, it had a basic pod, a pod that had white turbines and a red back. He had a basic bomb which had a dark orange side and a dark red middle; although when it opened it reveal a bomb launcher. He also had the basic gun; it was mostly grey with a yellow end that fired three rounds of bullets. Finally he had a pair of basic legs, which were mostly blue with black knee pads.
“Come on rookie, fight back!” Terry yelled, his voice was kind of robotic. Terry disappeared and appeared in front of Eric. “Take this” he raised his bomb as it fired a bomb from the bomb launcher and sent Eric flying to the wall.
“Damn it” Eric struggled to get up. “I’m still getting used to fighting in this body” he said as he looked down at his parts; they were the same as Terry’s. “Wait, I have the same parts, which mean, teleport” Eric raised his hands and waited to disappear. “What’s happening?” he asked as he looked around his parts.
“Idiot, only my robot can do that, that’s its special ability, since yours is balanced up, it doesn’t have a special ability” Terry started laughing manically. “Pod” Terry fired two missiles down at Eric.
“I don’t think so” Eric jumped out of the way, he raised his basic gun and started firing the three rounds at Terry. Terry jumped out two of the three but the third one hit him in the arm. “Now, tackle” Eric’s body glowed red as he crashed with Terry and sent him crashing on the wall..
“Wow, you’re better than I thought” Terry said as his HP went down to 800. “But I’m still winning” Terry started firing bombs and bullets at Eric. Eric tried to dodge it, but the bomb hit it and two of the bullets. His HP went down to 700.
“It’s too hard to fight this way” Eric got up and then fired a bomb from its arm. “But I’m going to win and help those guys!” he yelled as Terry teleported and appeared behind him, then Terry spun around as his body glowed red and crashed with Eric’s. Eric bounced off the floor and laid there for a few seconds.
“Come on, I thought you had guts” Terry charged his gun and fired a big beam of energy. Eric saw this and did the same as both beams crashed.
“I may be new, but I have spirit and I will win!” Eric yelled as two pods were fired out; since Terry was focusing on the beam the pods hit him. “Now” he ran over to Terry and kicked him with his right leg. Terry’s HP went down to 670.
The battle kept going, Eric was falling behind from Terry as he crashed with the wall again. “This sucks” Eric mumbled as he got up. “I only have 200 HP points left” he started grasping for breath. “Hell I’m even starting to die out of breath.”
“Come on kid, can’t you fight” Terry grinned; he still had a hundred point advantage over Eric. “Or are you tire” he fired another round of bullets.
“That’s it” Eric opened his eyes wide as he jumped in the air, he flipped over and landed behind Terry. “Tackle Kick!” he yelled as he kicked Terry with his left leg and sent him crashing, this took out seventy points out.
“Take this” Terry ran over at Eric and fired a bomb. Eric fired his three round bullets and it made the bomb explode in mid air.. Terry took his chance to tackle Eric and send him in the air.
*Am I still alive, I think I still have a hundred points left* Eric thought as he opened his eyes; he was falling in mid air, this was his chance. “Don’t get distracted” Eric said and fired more bullets and hit Terry on his chest and arms.
“A hundred, we’re tied up” Terry flinched and held his hand over the spot he got hit on.
“Not anymore!” Eric yelled and his body glowed red and then he tackled Terry for one last time. Terry started sliding on the floor letting out sparks as he stopped, his body started disappearing.
“I did it” Eric held his hand up and smiled. “I won” he closed his eyes as he felt his body disappeared too.
Eric appeared he was lying on the grass. “Did I won” he asked Dennis as he looked at his face.
“Yeah, you struggled, but you did it” Dennis smiled and helped him up from the floor. “That was great for a first timer” he said.
“Yeah, you won” Live ran over to him and smiled. “That was really great” she said.
“Yeah, yeah, still, I’m going to be watching over you cheater” Bull growled and pointed at Eric with his boxer glove. “That’s why I want to make a bet, if Team Numero Uno loses against my team on the school Tournament, you guys have to disband.”
“I’ll take it!” Liv yelled; this just made Dennis more alarmed. Bull smirked and walked off with the rest of his friends.
“Liv, why did you do that, there’s no way the two of us can win against him!” Dennis yelled; Liv just grinned at him.
“Two, what do you mean two, we got Eric with us” Liv jumped over to Eric and put her arm around him. “You see Eric we got a team called Team Numero Uno, and well we need more members so can you join?” she asked as she smiled down at Eric.
“Well, I just moved here and I don’t have anything to do, but I’ll take it, although can I get free food” Eric laughed cheerily as Liv let him go.
“Sure, you can have Dennis’s snacks” Liv and Eric started laughing; although Dennis didn’t really found the funny side of this.
“Yeah, sure” he said in an uninterested tone. Max smiled as he high fived Dennis.
“Don’t worry, it’ll be okay” he said as the three of them started walking off.
