A Lamb Among Wolves
So still going on the U.F. series through fanfiction, the artwork is a little slower. This older piece was done for fun long ago and happened across it going through old data archives of mine. I'm still rusty with the new tablet I'm using since I busted the pen on the Intuos 4.

Enjoy.

Ch. 2 The Wolf

Kadic Academy West Exit

The time had come and Mrs. Hertz’ science class for the semester had showed up for roll call. Every boy and girl who had her class for the morning periods stood around and mingled with one another, forming their own little groups or waiting in the shade. Every now and then one would speak up when the older woman came across their name, but other than that it was peaceful and droll.

Thankfully a slight breeze made the morning sun bearable for everyone, of course for Aelita it was heavenly. To feel the brilliance of the ten o clock sun filtering in through the tall English oaks which populated the landscaping  around the school with their earthy scent was mellowing. She enjoyed the smallest things that no one else seemed to care about, every so often a wasp would zip by off to feed the colony or to collect food and material. Birds chirped as they cautiously swooped down on the gravel dirt walkways to peck away seeds or small stones. She happened to have identified five species before Yumi and Ulrich arrived from the vending machine with a cup of tea and cocoa. They were chatting about the mid term exams and art class bringing in pottery to change up their usual. Odd had snuck a small hand held game which consumed his attention and Jeremie all the while browsed through his latest developments on her cure. The notes she provided earlier had given him much to think about.

“So they’ll be teaching how to throw or make? I wonder if I can bring my mother’s tea bowls and see if the professor knows which is which? She knows the glazes and the clay body and had me memorize it when I was younger.” Yumi asked as she blew on her hot chocolate drink.

Ulrich shrugged, “Probably, I saw Mr. Chardin carrying a stack of books all which had craft and ceramics somewhere on their spins. I really hope he knows what to do, I’m still failing English.” He bemoaned, “My dad’s not going to let up when he sees the f-plus I got on the last assignment…”

Yumi patted him on the back as she swallowed the sweet dark liquid, “Tell you what if you want any help I’m sure me or Jeremie can help tutor you? Plenty of time after last class am I right?” she gave him a smile, the sweet smell of her beverage carried by the air tickled the young man as he gave it thought.

Aelita overheard them and remembered she still had to go over the Japanese language so Yumi and her could carry on conversations. She’d already memorized French, German, and a little Italian yet she had not gone past that before she was given a body. Now that she existed among humans, she’d need to be able to talk to everyone she’d meet. Another challenge she mentally made a note of before the two went on, Mrs Hertz calling Odd’s name at the same time to which he replied while focusing on whatever game he played.

Ulrich stuttered a little, “S…S…Sure?! I don’t see why not, I really don’t want to have a repeat of last time when he came to the game. I swear he’d yank me out of here and toss me into some kind of crazy brainwashing school just to get the grades he wants!” A quick scowl visited his face as he looked off at the school’s brick exterior.

Aelita knew he had a strained relationship with his father, from that one attack when XANA tried to send the school’s occupants into space. Jeremie had explained further that they were seldom in communication with each other with such a high expectation placed upon Ulrich. The parenting method was far from a productive one, seeing as how everyone else either still lived with their family or had communicated with them once a month when possible. While he also agreed that Ulrich could be performing better if he just focused on his studies a little more and opened a day for it instead of practicing his martial arts. There was no end to the possibilities of improving a grade in one or two of his classes. So there seemed to be a dilemma between Ulrich’s private pursuits in sports and pencak silat with pleasing his father. The entire discussion only meant there was the world of psychology she needed to investigate to try and understand the argument of nature versus nurture. A topic Jeremie left the conversation at when he noticed something in the vaccine that needed to be corrected.

“You know, Jeremie could probably run your ears off and you’d just fry your brains just trying. Yumi on the other hand will just distract you… because you know?” Odd added as he curved and twisted with the driving simulator game he operated with fierce determination.

Ulrich understandable blushed and nearly choked on his tea he tried to drink, as a little bit went down into his lungs he burst into a coughing fit. Aelita observed with curiosity as Yumi roughly patted his back, trying to aid the evacuation of the brew from his airways all the way asking if he was alright. Odd had dropped his plastic gaming device to look up and appear mixed in how to react, on one hand his good friend had just embarrassed himself far better than he could have imagined and on the other he felt worry. Aelita studied the spiked blonde as he eventually stood up and tried to ask if Ulrich needed to go to the nurse or if a slap to his diaphragm would help as when one had lodged a chuck of food in their esophagus. The brown haired teenager sported bugged out eyes as they started to develop the condition known as bloodshot from his exertion. Heaving came shortly after as his attempts to stop his bodily reaction to the fluid invading his airways and he doubled over, attracting many of the students attention nearby.

“Take him to the nurse guys! He’s obviously not feeling well!” Jeremie hurried over and began to escort Stern back into the building, his cup of hot tea having been dropped and absorbed into the soil as the cup was kicked out of the way.

Mrs. Hertz appeared next to Aelita with an incredulous look of anger at being interrupted from her attendance check, “What in the name of Quantum Physics happened! First I’m calling for row call and next I can’t even talk without the sound of someone making a ruckus?”

The older woman was understandably furious as she had a different perspective from where Aelita stood. She guess all that Mrs. Hertz saw were heads at the most and it left her to clear up the disturbance she justly found at first as a childish disturbance by a class clown. Jeremie appeared to speak up first, but Aelita jumped on the chance before he could as she gazed at the science teacher.

“I’m afraid he’s accidently encountered an ingestion of his drink deep into the trachea, he needs to be seen by the school’s nurse to ensure he won’t have future breathing problems. Though that is from what I can assume from what I saw Mrs. Hertz.” She explained to the adult, “I hope he will be fine, the symptoms appear to hint at a quick recovery under medical observation?”

Her detailed summary was not well received as she hoped for, as instead she earned a skeptical eye from the professor, “You must be Aelita Schaeffer? Well, seeing as no one is laughing… and I can see that Mr. Stern has dropped some kind of drink I’ll overlook this disturbance this one time. If he needs to see the nurse please take him there, only one person may go and assist him on his way. Now if we’re done having interruptions I’d like to ensure everyone is present before we walk our way over to the site of our study. Please class, no beverages before the trip as it will help most of you from needing to find a bathroom when we’re clearly going to be out in the wilderness!” her tone held a note of irritation and a little concern before she walked away with her clipboard in hand.

“I’ll go with him, besides not like I’m going to do anything but draw my dog while we’re out there.” Odd chuckled as his backpack moved a little, Aelita instantly detecting the shuffling and knew what was inside by sheer assumption.

Yumi nodded if not reluctantly, “Okay, but text me when he’s out.”

“Right, enjoy your trip out there, going to be as boring as ever when you compare it to dealing with XANA.” The stout boy smirked before leading Ulrich back inside the school as the other students parted for them, the other still coughing up a storm with veins in his head bulging.

Aelita noticed Sissi watch as the whole thing occur, she specifically eyed Ulrich in general as if she wanted to leap upon him like a hungry jaguar. The affections she held for him were superficial at best, a psychological need to sate some unrequited desire in her person. Though it was a childish type of affinity she held for Stern, Aelita wondered what the girl would have done if she didn’t have some modicum amount of restraint. She herself felt worry over one of her saviors, from the goading of Odd he ended up likely missing out on the field trip she looked forward to. They all planned to share notes and hopefully add to each other’s database for the professor to grade. Yet his health came first, as the human body needed to be in perfect homeostasis for a long and virile future ahead. The pity was short lived as the professor announced that the field trip was starting and the groups of teenagers were beginning to congregate into a thick three person line as they followed the Kadic instructor.

Jeremie joined alongside her with a smile, “I’m sure he’ll be okay, plenty of people inhale their drinks on hand, and thankfully he’ll likely be tip top shape by the time we come back!”

“Oh good, I’d hate to see a little water do anyone in after they’ve faced countless battles against virtual monsters and their creator?” she innocently replied with no connotations whatsoever implied, she honestly didn’t want to imagine something so small incapacitate her friends.

Jeremie on the other hand was taken off guard by her comment until he gave it deeper thought, seeing that she wasn’t human to start with. Whatever she said had to be taken in depth when it appeared to be an insult or mean, she was still unfiltered in her responses.

The line of bodies started to move towards the sidewalk of the campus boundaries towards the forest to be studied, “Ya… sure thing?”

As everyone followed Mrs. Hertz, the gang or what was left walked on in silence as they found no need to speak about what had just happened. Yumi understandably had her reason, Jeremie on the other hand had a brother sister relationship with her and knew any amount of talk would shatter what hold she had over her reasoning. The bond between Ulrich and her was strenuous at best, complicated was a better term to use when describing them even if they wanted to appear just friends in front of others. It lent Aelita a nice peaceful trip onto the destination to admire the human structures of homes and small businesses they passed by. She contemplated the various materials used to build the dwellings and their creation from raw resources, how more efficient the building could be made with a few modifications and swapping out of certain things. The utilization of space by humanity seemed wasted at best, she could already see how the homes could be made to give more vertical living areas for other families instead of expanding horizontally.

In due time, they all arrived at the location which happened to be a small park designated as a wildlife refuge from the many suburbs and businesses that encroached beyond Paris. From this place the school could carry out biology lessons to better understand the plant and animal lives where humans rarely tread through. It was a whole other sight to behold as Aelita entered the worn down joggers path, the sun barely even visible through the thick canopy up above unless they entered a clearing. Mrs. Hertz authorized a certain degree of liberty in distance they could exploit, but all in all they had forty by forty feet to examine. The lesson of the field trip was to collect a large amount of data on what thrived in the area whether it was trees, plants, animals, fungi, insects, or animals all of which needed to be recorded for a final analysis. Mrs. Hertz said it was a way for students to connect with the real world that was outside of their homes, computers, and phones. Strangely enough, it drove the pink haired pseudo human into a frenzy to allocate the many life forms for her to examine and draw. She was a machine first, human second when it came to seeing the world first hand.

Then came the moment when Jeremie who followed her inquisitive aim without guide had realized he left his laptop in place of the vaccine folder in his pack.

“I thought I packed it in with everything… but I guess I was wrong? I’ll need to go back and retrieve it from my room, will you be okay with Yumi? Aelita?” he asked as he rearmed himself with the load bearing equipment after having searched it.

She responded quickly as she sketched a finch that swooped down into the clearing she was viewing, “Do you mean your laptop?”

“Ya, guess I gathered the vaccine notes folder and figured it was the laptop instead. I’ll need to go back. You can manage without me right?” he asked again.

Aelita looked up from her notes and grinned at him, “Sure I can, it’s not like XANA is going to attack? You can grab you the computer if you need.” she chuckled before returning to her work.

Knowing the girl well enough, the genius boy nodded and ventured off in secret obscurity as he left back to the school. Aelita was from then on alone with Yumi keeping to herself nearby Mrs. Hertz, with no one there to distract her she carried out the assignment and searched for biological entities in earnest. It took not even five minutes for Aelita to follow a lively trail away from everyone else as she kept acquiring new subjects to draw and put notes on.

She had originally been detailing a sketch of fungi on fallen tree branches on the semi moist forest floor when her eyes happened upon a little growth of a strange type of plant where butterflies and bees seemed to flock to. Like a dominating evasive vine, the trifoliate with oval shaped leaves carried a deep emerald green color which on older leaflets they died away into vibrant cream yellow and auburn. The first visages of the strange organism were the tips of a very long arm that Aelita followed like Hansel and Gretel breadcrumb trail. She had done prior research on the ecology of France and this particular species had not immediately drawn any speculations.

What confused her more was the erupting trail of budding flowers and blooms which held such a strange hue of purple and red violet. It seemed to feel pleasant and entrancing to look as the small four inch diameter rose-like reproductive structure. The farther Aelita had followed the lone stream to its core body, the more she discovered how rampant the plant had expanded itself to the point that it covered bushes and tree trunks with its tendrils. By now, Aelita had ventured far enough that the science trip was barely audible behind her, no voices could heard as she moved through the underbrush and avoided contact with the possibly poisonous plant. She knew one thing about the defensive mechanisms of any living creature, and she did not want to experience anything like a horrible rash or blisters.

Peering down closely to the highly successful plant, “What are you?”

Her head tilted as she tried to examine the features of the flora, memorizing every inch of it for later research. Blooms suddenly burst open before her as they released their alien color amid the muteness of their surroundings. A scent akin to hibiscus filled the air as if they responded to her very presence, but Aelita had a very small vocabulary in the way of floral scents currently. So her noise rather enjoyed the sensation of inhaling what the near iridescent petals gave off. As far as the eye could see the flowers manifested among the thick vines and displayed how far the intrusive organism proliferated. With her assignment discarded out of sheer wonderment for the life form, the pink haired girl dropped her notebook to her side and felt the temptation of feeling every texture the plant had to offer. It drew her to want, like an overpowering need to commit to something beyond her prerogative she placed upon herself.

As she eyed every little crease, every vein which flowed life giving fluids in the perianth, she felt a draw which captured her into the very color they bore. She wanted to touch them and the desire as deep as feeding that itch on ones back by scratching, a similar act she knew first hand at how sensitive the human body was to small stimulations. What became an issue was her mind being able to separate itself from nerve input, she knew something was off with the color in the Plantae kingdom in some fashion or form.

Before she knew it, rustling began to shake the foliage behind her as something rushed towards her position. Her ears perceived the noise and tried to hone in on the source only for the restrictive evolutionary trait to fall short. In seconds she soon saw her vision looking behind her enveloped with the body of another human that collided with her with abrupt speed. Aelita felt the surge of shock from the entire ordeal at the start, something solid made contact with her head which numbed her to the rest of the fall. The air in her lungs had been forced out as she was flung onto the forest floor. The backpack of course cushioned the worst of the landing for her, but nonetheless her spine arched painfully. She lost control of her grip on everything she had in her hands. The pencils and notebook with her latest artwork spun in the air, the sheets of paper opening up like a white dove falling from flight. She rolled over the pack and finally came to a stop facedown just before going into a thick brush submerged by the alien flora.

The stun effect gradually wore off as she felt sensation coming back and the bruise forming on her forehead. Groaning while she lifted herself up groggily, she coughed up what debris she accidently inhaled while greeting the crushed grass underneath her. Pulling her legs below her she took up a sitting position and rubbed the forming lump, her thoughts coming too she analyzed her condition from the numerous medical documents she studied on LYOKO. Another human must have been sprinting from the distance she ended up covering from where she originated. Their head must have been what made contact first as she felt what she assumed was transferred sweat off their body. Similarly in the same way as her first day in gym and how Odd had introduced her to the concept of the high-five. She having done little exercise yet after Jim had gone over a story of his of being the guardian to a secret case he found belonging to very important people in the military industry.

Looking back to her injury, it had not formed as fast as she thought it would have and it may have been thanks to her last minute adjustment in stance. The rest of her state ached if only from their bodies greeting each other as they did and absorb the tumble. Nothing at all serious as she thankfully welcomed, an icepack for her bruise would suffice when she rejoined the school field trip. However, it lent her to search out the person who began the disdainful experience as she needed to find out why their paths had crossed and why their first meeting was so physical. Pain was something she was not accustomed to as on LYOKO, being hit by a laser or knocked around was a full body register of pain and it was more of a dull level on the scale of sensation.  She however found it useful to know either way, adding to her personal library to which when things did go sour she’d know how to adapt.

Holding a hand to the ailed skin, she looked about her and searched for the other person in question. Though still hazy, she took into account what she remembered and estimated where they probably ended up since they were the one in motion.  Doing a little math and some observation of disturbed earth, she looked to a large silver birch behind a wild shrub. It too was covered by the vines, some of which were torn where a hole had been made and the vibrant purple flowers wilted and abused around the site. She managed to get to her feet and stagger over as she had questions pouring through her mind as the stranger came into view.

Only slightly taller than her, she couldn’t make out if it was male or female as they had come to a stop just in front of the thick tree trunk as its roots were hidden by the soil. Their back was to her, rising from shallow breathing and limbs pointing in every direction as it appeared that they must have hit their head on the bark. Soot black hair a little longer than Yumi’s covered what facial features she could have seen, a blue jacket covered the torso with leaves and vines clinging to the fabric like Velcro by tiny hairs. Though if the shoes and pants were anything to go by then she realized that she was inspecting a human boy.

The next question came to her among everything else from how she should react to helping the unconscious person, was why did this meeting happen? She did not even make it through the pondering moment before rustling of leaves and branches caught her attention. Snapping a glance behind her was likely the reason or what became the very obvious predator that had finally caught up to its catch. A young woman likely to be around twenty two years of age had stepped out of the last of the foliage before she reached the pathway Aelita had innocently followed. What made her experience fearful was a human that was beyond her in a red coat, very casual wear, and forest touched blonde locks. Holes torn through her clothing and some kind of indigo violet fluid instead of the normal iron based hemoglobin of the person oozed and stained through where wounds had been sustained. While the rest of the new comers body was no worse for wear, her right arm had somehow mutated or changed in such a radical way that below the elbow there existed no flesh or bone. Some other worldly limb existed in place, gelatinous in nature it seemed to phase into being at the elbow joint. Like the jello cups Odd had eaten a day before and introduced her to it, the same viscous material moved and churned as if it were alive. From the thickness of her upper arm the strange limb fanned out with small finger-like protrusions flexing in eagerness to grasp anything.

The first thing that came to mind was a spike going through her heart as her body began to react, a feeling she did not understand herself. Her legs wavered, breathing picked up, her skin immediately began to erupt in goose bumps as the human body acted as it should in a flight or fight trigger. What her loosing calm did not fathom was that her new body would have a way of its own apart from her calculating mind. Too focused on who this strange new being was that was designated as a potential threat, Aelita would have seen the truth of the situation otherwise.

“Who… are you?” her voice stuttered a little even though she thought the question should have came out less strained in her mind.

The woman gazed at the fallen boy and then at her, those eyes of hers matched the strange alien flesh that was her right arm, a vibrant purple violet. The intruder snorted as she rose the appendage up and sought a combat stance. The purple gel reshaped itself into a blade of some kind, shimmering in the sparse light coming through the heavy tree canopy above.

“Please? There’s… no reason to fight?” Aelita tried to move her legs only to be betrayed with inaction.

Crouched and poised to leap, the humanoid nightmare studied her prey before attacking. Intent on making first contact with the abomination of an arm, Aelita managed a step back as even the pain of her forehead had become nothing. She couldn’t reason with the situation until it was too late to move and by then the aggressor that was about to impale her vanished from her sight.

Aelita had been thrown to the side, shoved was a better term to use as the world turned ninety degrees to the left. She barely had time to adjust and catch herself when her vision had managed to glimpse of what had just sent her off. The boy who had been on the ground nudged against the tree trunk had somehow saved her from what would have been her end. For the first time it felt as if XANA wouldn’t be at the root of the near death experience, though it was nothing to be happy about. The blonde woman had instead struck the boy who had turned to glance at her as the alien limb struck him still in mid action of slamming into her.

No sooner had she fell onto the grassy earth and bounced a couple times, her head craned up to try and reconnect to the attack. Processing every amount of detail and movement, the offender’s arm seemed to have not pierced the flesh of the unknown person but splashed about his torso almost how an octopus would surround a crab. She had already forced him backwards and into the ground, but the violet gel had one more thing to do to the prey. Holding the boy down a visible arc of electricity surged forth from the torn portion of her red jacket and into the captive. He made no noise as he simply convulsed and lost consciousness, Aelita could tell he still breathed if not faintly. As she watched the limb remove itself from a good clump of the goo that adhered to the victim’s body, the whole assault had clicked in her mind as to what was happening. She assumed this was none other than a special specter sent by XANA, as the only other explanation would be alien life that was here on this world. As farfetched as the latter was she banked on the woman being a minion of her hated enemy, but why it was hunting the boy was strange enough that she couldn’t fathom.

It was then that the attacker relished in her freshly acquired quarry, starring into the incapacitated young male that she realized something. Aelita had tried to stand up and managed to keep slipping on the grass in the process, making enough noise to tear her attention away. Reforming the stubby fingers and thick palm of the gelatinous limb, she turned menacingly towards the pink haired human with a stoic expression. Emotionless as a car, the being showed no signs of XANA as was usual of an infected or conjured entity, but she was intent on doing the same to Aelita as she had to the other.

Utter fear struck into the computer program in flesh and blood, she didn’t know what to do and just kept analyzing the situation out of panic. Her human body confused her thought process which in LYOKO she’d have ran by then, chemical reactions in her physical chemistry denied her a way of reacting properly. As luck would have it she’d suffer a slow methodical gait towards her by the XANA pawn, with a pounding heart and a sweating response she could only edge away until she hit a thick shrub which resisted her body’s backwards momentum. Branches and leaves poked her back and neck, but they were seldom felt as the danger she was in surmounted it.

The non-human began to raise her abomination of an arm to strike again, starring with dead eyes into Aelita’s own as if daring her to try and escape. No words left those peach lips, no facial movements on her vanilla skin, just a robotic action taken by a puppet with no remorse. To which once the insidious protrusion reached the climax of its rise, Aelita did the one thing a human would do when cornered by a threat as did their ancestors as a means to call for help or alert the troop. She screamed and screamed hard, she didn’t do it on purpose it simply happened and she let it go. She let her body do what it was suppose to do and she threw all she had into the act, the cry was high pitch at first until it devolved into a throaty groan. So sudden was the call for help that even the older woman ceased in her progress as if taken aback by the vocalization, she actually felt it as did her ears. Tilting her head and letting her long hair fall to the side, she looked at every part of the young girl as if trying to understand why it made such a noise.

Of course her hearing picked up on the loud approach of Mrs. Hertz and her class who couldn’t help but hear the fear. Bodies were on their way as they plowed through underbrush and it stopped the attacker from continuing. The blonde turned to leave and left without further trace of itself, even the goop on the boy disintegrated as she vanished from Aelita’s sight. The bushy tailed Kadic student with wide terrorized eyes glued her vision to where the monster had taken and never took her eyes off that portion of the forest. She had no way of understanding what just went on, the icy sensation of pure unadulterated fear still surged through her veins as her body shivered from the excitement. Aelita did not even register Mrs. Hertz dashing to her and checking her over for injuries which proceeded into questioning, the world was numb for the A.I. as were the tips of her limbs. Students that arrived in time had found the strange scene, of the new girl having a panic attack or possibly hurt and another person just by their own feet. Of course for them they gasped when they saw the small amount of blood trickle on his face coming from a head scratch hidden by his dark hair.

The field trip had ended after that, leaving everyone confused and worried about what went on.

Ch. 1 A New World

‘I have come a long way, it feels so very long since that first day when Jeremie found the super computer.’

Inside Kadic Academy, Aelita has just finished preparing for the day ahead as she triple checked the travel pack that would be important for the expected schedule. Standing over her neatly made bedspread, she hummed a light tune Odd had managed to adhere into her mind from a band called the Sub Digitals. As her hands touched and verified what was in the maroon red backpack, she wondered among many things how amazing it was to be alive. She wondered about the flesh and blood body she now inhabited, the entire experience had an unending stream of discoveries and research around every move she made and its maintenance. As her notebooks, the one reference guide to botany and wildlife Mrs. Hertz provided for the trip into the local forest, and her writing and drawing utensils were accounted for Aelita then sealed the main compartment and gave it a gentle pat. With the help of Yumi and Jeremie, she had slowly and flawlessly been learning the ways of human living. The gift from the others which would allow her to no longer walk alone on LYOKO’s plateaus and fear roving monster or a trap of some elaborate design.

‘I’m forever grateful to everyone who has done many a great deeds… sacrificed themselves all for their world as well as me.’

She still had thirty minutes before the science class joined in the west courtyard for attendance and briefing. Allowing her enough time to continue at her leisurely pace, remembering what the human body needed and did during the course of one day swayed in her head as a bunch of charts. With her pack secured, she meandered over to her desk where after they returned from the biology lesson her last two classes would still need to be attended. The night before she had compiled the text books, reading supplements, paper, pens, and homework necessary for History and Math class. She could easily empty the contents for the field trip soon to occur and take no longer than seven minutes after lunch to be properly set for the rest of the day.

‘XANA will always threaten this world and my friends, and until we can find a vaccine for the virus he’s placed in me. I will in turn give them my all to prevent harm from coming to those who live on this planet. Because…’

Aelita recounted the neatly organized pile of school supplies of both stacks, finding no error she placed her hands on her hips and turned her humming melody into a victorious note. The feel good sensation she acquired was another addicting reaction of her being she lavished in, something she had no real honest experience with since she had been only a sequence of one’s and zero’s not a week ago. Her day had started off very well as usual with a wonderfully restful night’s sleep. Somehow managing to be the first at the girl’s shower room with plenty of hot water, which never ceased to amaze her how great it felt to feel clean under the high temperature liquid. To top it all off, having a quiet breakfast with the whole group and sampling of what was deemed to be a dietary must produced from milk or dairy. What the school served was a probiotic creamy substance with sweet and tart berries mixed in, Jeremie had designated it as yoghurt.

The odd flavor alone was tantalizingly smooth to the palette with a strange aftertaste, and the science behind it went in depth with Jeremie seated next to her. Complimented with a  glass of water and a toasted bread on the side, she heard everything he said about dairy farms and the fermentation process that produced the morning food item. To which during the explanation Yumi added that fermenting foods were utilized in vegetables as well, using pickled cabbage called kimchi as reference. Ulrich had quipped a joke about the term ferment and jabbed at Odd’s unfortunate foot condition, it was not received well and playfully earned a backhand on the arm. Her breakfast ended on a group laugh which filled the peaceful cafeteria and drew attention from a few. The act of laughing itself was also a euphoric experience, another memory she’d cherish for years to come.

‘This is my home.’

A knock came at her door which drew her from recollection, halting her astute mind from reviewing over her notes on her form’s biology like a manual to a machine. It felt as if it were too soon to expect Jeremie or the others to head out, her bare feet softly thumped on the carpeted floor as she went to answer the second volley of knocks.

Turning the knob, Aelita found a tall girl before her with long raven hair, dressed in flashy clothing, tapping shiny new shoes, and a wall of perfume which stung her nose as it hit her. This was that one person Ulrich and Yumi warned her about, they even went so far as to teach her how to react and handle the school principals daughter. Of all the students, this young adolescent female held a small amount of power over others and was as conniving as a snake as Yumi put it. She only bore her fangs when pressed to do so or she did not get her way. So long as you did not make the first jab, she often left to do something else or her followers would harass the one who angered her. Harass being coined as a lame attempt at intimidation, which the subjects Herb and Nicholas were poor at executing the bluff. In Kadic, fighting was looked down upon and shamed through strict punishment, the most reliable staff member Jim Morales was the enforcer. Ulrich said that the two may have been lacking in forethought or much of any wisdom, but they too had to be pushed over the edge to act out of line.

“You’re that new girl right?” her nearly nasally voice scrapped Aelita’s hearing, picking up a certain behavioral tone she remembered from reading on animals much like the small monkeys of island countries.

“Yes? My name is Aelita Schaffer it is nice…” she tried to offer an olive branch only to receive an open palm in her face to stop her, there was no contact thankfully.

“Don’t care, just thought I’d let you know you’re no longer the new kid here. Someone’s coming from out of country, so that saves you the welcoming I had planned for you. I know who you’re friends with, those good for nothings Ulrich associates himself with! Seeing as we’re here now, I am the Queen around here and you are below me on the pecking order. That does not mean we have to be enemies however?” she gave her a smug look.

Aelita saw where this was going and kept herself neutral, the feelings however coming from talking to this person were not enjoyable in the slightest. She had no comprehension of the social ladder that existed in human circles, something she’d yet to have ever read over even while she did her research on LYOKO.

“Stick with me and you’ll enjoy your time here, but…” Sissi leaned onto one leg and cocked a hip with an air of arrogance, “… cross me and you’ll find out how bad school can really get.”

She flipped her waist length hair and began to depart to her room down the hall, “Oh and by the way, I love your hair? You should come by my room and show me what dye you use to color it? It’s such a lovely shade of pink, and I’d bet I’d look ravishing with a few streaks! Ta Ta!!”

Having done as she was told to do, Aelita had thankfully had her naïve nature circumvented with the proper response. However it was a bit of a sobering moment to an otherwise glorious morning, to be reminded of how little she was prepared for the real world among the homo sapiens. She had only been just a computer program not a few days ago when she received the ability to live and breathe on Earth. It was not fear she felt that moment as she closed her door and slowly walked back to her bed, her mind identified it as anxiety. What would she do if a problem ever occurred with the humans of this place?

“I’ll bring it up with Yumi later, she would know contingency plans to fall back on.” She told herself just as her cell phone rang in the side compartment of her backpack.

The cheery ringtone startled her from the gray sheet over her earlier mirth, her friends were always there at the right moment to save her from anything. Whether it be a monster, XANA, or trouble student she’d never have to linger in the mucky feeling for long. Thankfully it was Jeremie on the end of the line with the digital clock showing it had been a total of ten minutes since she was ready for the field trip.

She answered the call, “Hello? Is it time yet?”

The all too familiar voice of the smartest boy on the campus answered, “I figured we could use the spare time to look over the latest vaccine progress for you? Would you like to see the relevant data? I believe there is a chain of sequences in block thirty two for you to see and find any errors. I’ve already gone through it five times myself, however… your input would be great?”

“I’d be happy too, by the way did you know someone else is new to Kadic? Sissi stopped by and mentioned them. Said I’d be exempt from the Welcoming Party she had for me?” Aelita innocently explained which was met with a groan on the other end.

“Be glad that poor kid did that for you, it’s sort of… Sissi’s way of getting allies or identifying enemies. She didn’t hurt you did she?” he asked with a slight firmness in his voice.

Aelita giggled, “I did exactly as the others told me to do when she talks to me. She simply had a small chat with me, and left asking if I’d stop by her room with the dye I apparently use for my hair? How odd yet very relieving.”

Jeremie gave way to a little chuckle once he was sure she wasn’t touched in any serious way, “Well when we did configure your genetic code together, you did prefer that color after all. I did tell you it wasn’t natural, but for as long as you’ve been walking among the rest you shouldn’t attract too much attention. Everyone’s use to the idea of dying hair to anything but the basic colors people are born with. So I’ll see you here soon?”

“Yes, heading out now.” She heard him click off the device and end the call, letting her secure the phone back into its pouch to make her way out.

After adorning her footwear, she hauled her pack and made her leave looking forward to the quality time she’d get to spend with Jeremie and the others out in nature. They had always gone through the forest to head to and leave the factory, but she’d only done that twice maybe three times since she entered this world. Neither having had the time nor option to explore the true world beyond human cities and suburbs, what wonders she would see and add to her vast library only her unique body could soak up. She would thank whatever fate had for her for allowing this to happen.

Twelve miles from Kadic Academy

A black Renault Clio drove past old looking homes and tall trees as the winding roads continued into farmlands and cozy areas. Windows were clear and tintless, revealing inside two men in the front seats wearing dark sunglasses and dressed as secret service agents. The driver was bald and olive skinned, a thick chin gave his appearance a very imposing masculinity complete with thick hands gripping the steering wheel. His compatriot in the passenger seat was a darker toned male with short shaved black hair and beard, he too possessed a manly body with a thick barrel of a chest. Both were silent as the vehicle cleared the small section of neighborhoods, no vehicles before them or behind which eased the drive.

In the back seats, two more agents sat in place with a smaller person in between them. A scowl upon the woman on the right with a mark on her face hinted at her career being none the safest. Short brown hair tied into a pony tail in the back, she too wore the same gear and mirroring uniform if not only tailored to her lither frame. On the other side a rather thicker man looked out the window as he scanned the open pastures with horse and cattle grazing with no care of the world about them. Bald as well, he kept taking a finger to his right ear where an opaque curly white tube connected from the earpiece to somewhere in his black suit. He never spoke, no one really did for much of the drive.

The small adolescent in between them had sat contently still, ever since they mounted in and left the place he had long since known as the world as it were. With hands neatly placed on his lap, wearing a cerulean blue jacket on top of a white shirt with green pants he looked like any other child of the world. His greenish gray eyes continuously scanning the machine he was being moved in had been memorizing every type of surface, fabric, dial, knob, and variations of flesh that he could see past the long dark hair upon his skull. He breathed in slowly as the air conditioner maintained the internal temperature of the vehicle. The scent of the plants had filtered in and taken into his olfactory nerves as a new experience as it was for him. If the images outside the glass windows were anything to try and make a speculation of, he was already dosed with enough information of the vastness about him to last a week of processing it all. His heart did not accelerate from the stimulation, serenity and placidity surrounded the boy as if they were a passive guardian angel.

One of the men spoke up out of the blue as the vehicle shuddered in speed, “Bloody people just walk in the middle of the road these days.” He grumbled as the car started to slow.

“What’s wrong?” the woman asked as she peered in front of the boy to see herself.

“Imbecile! They’re not moving.” The driver replied as the brake stopped them in their route.

The big man to the boy’s left tapped the back of the driver’s seat with a fist, “I’ll handle them, you’d just throttle them off the side of the road and we’re strapped for time.”

The lurching body mass exiting allowed the Clio to lift off the road just noticeable by all, the sound of insects chattering with birds outside became instantly audible. The boy looked over as the door was soon closed, his tan face froze before getting an eyeful of the outside when the sounds were cut out.

“Radio it in, chances this getting ugly with a local is high.” The passenger up front sighed heavily as if he knew how things were going to go.

The woman agreed, “Right…” pressing on a pocket in her suit, “Phenoix? This is Resolve over? Phenoix do you copy?”

The boy observed in silence as the scene carried on without any action on his part, his brain just maintained the recording of the event as it happened. He did not even budge as one of the men began to freak out and reach for something inside his suit after thirty seconds passed of his fellow vanishing from view. The passenger seemed to have had something ready well in advance and hurriedly left the transport. All the while he cursed under his breath hefting his body up, aiming a blocky black item to the road where the other man had went to. Shouting to someone to get onto the ground, the boy started to ponder what was putting the others into such an excited state. Even the driver unbuckled himself and took up the same kind of action as the other, the woman nearby starting to show panic as whoever she called to had only then answered back after several attempts.

The men were growing more irate by the second, “We got a situation! Someone just took down Helmsy and they’re advancing on vehicle! We’re twelve miles from the drop off! Please advise!?”

As soon as she finished, the two agents started to open fire, unleashing painful ear rending pops as their weapons fired. The boy winced and covered his ears, shutting his eyes as he lost perception of the world about, he could hear only a droning ring. Bent over in an attempt to stop the sensation, the long hair he clasped onto to stop the noise still let in the audible assault. Bearing the assailment for only a few moments, someone grabbed onto his right arm and yanked him violently out of the car. His sight caught the quickly moving innards of the back seat and the open door which soon evolved into green grass and a rough landing on pavement. The ringing soon found friends with a sharp pain on an elbow, a portion of his right ribs, and the right hip from the landing on his side.

He could still not hear too well, but the vibrations of the weapons being fired were easily registered. Looking around he could see the female security detail reloading her weapon as she grimaced in terror at whatever was behind him. Back at the car the passenger side guard received a splash of something gelatinous and purple which after it covered a good portion of his head and chest as he seized up suddenly. The body arched and slowly fell backwards as an electrical current disabled the man who was still conscious of his agony. Rather than feel fear or the need to run, the teenager gazed at his left hand which grazed the road during the process of being extracted roughly from the vehicle. It bled a little from the scraps, pieces of pebbles still stuck to the skin which gave him something to inspect for a passing fraction of time. He could feel the sting not only in his ears, but in the affected areas of his body and his hand offered front seats to the specks of blood peaking through the scratches.

In the absence of any more gunfire, his hearing came back and was welcomed by the woman shouting to the name Phenoix, “PHENOIX!!! We’ve been ambushed! This isn’t human!! I’ll hold it off, but subject A is in danger!” she yelled as her pistol jammed, “I’m sending him away, send a recovery team and if they run into a blonde haired woman in her twenties with a red hoodie she is hostile!”

She threw her weapon at the unseen foe and picked up the teenager by his left arm, forcefully pulling him up and tossing him over an rustic wooden fence just a few feet behind them. Unprepared for the move, he rolled onto the untouched pasture feeling grass and flowers caress his face and leave a slight itchy feeling in their wake.  New experiences he had to stow away as the woman gave an order, and something within him compelled to obey.

“Unit 07! Code Argent! Run away and do not stop until the recovery team finds you! Run and don’t stop!!” she cried out as the description she told to Phenoix manifested from behind the mechanical carriage, a young woman with white skin, gold blonde hair, a red jacket, and a right hand possessing an all new kind of appendage. The same kind of gunk that took down the other guard moved of its own accord as it tried to form fingers that continuously morphed into other structures.

Forced to his feet, he did as was told before he was able to process the other person, he ran and ran as his speed picked up. There were a few grunts he could make out through the sound of brushing grass, then a scream that turned into nothingness.  The boy did not look back, he just kept on running aside the bruises forming where he earned them. Dashing into a treeline, he could hear someone starting after him and he knew he was from then on being chased.
C.L.-U.F. Ch. 1 A New World
Well, I don't expect much of this nor many readers, but I can at least say I tried everything even though the show has long since finished.

Story is an alternate take after season 1, our heroes will lead a whole other fight and a new kind of XANA. Stick around and see how all the monster art I have for the series has a place in Unknown Foxtrot.

Enjoy

So I've been on another fandom and having fun with it, gone through nearly fifty chapters to complete the first book. Gave me an inkling to attempt to make the story of Unknown Foxtrot that I've tried many a time to do as a comic but I have such little patience with the art and the show's been long since completed.

I'll be attempting to write the fanfic with some artwork and see how it does. Mainly because I enjoy writing and painting the story I've had collecting dust in the form of ideas has long since come to need to be done if not for just myself. How many of you will be seeing it come to fruition?

The whole alternate reality of C.L. because I hated what they did to the show after season one by making Aelita human in origin. There will be plenty of action, a better XANA, how the monsters I've made will act and be used, and the storyline up through Humanity's Final Test which many of you seem to like the cover art too. Comments welcomed.

Since they are of Hindi Mythology, I'd guess looking into Hinduism for sources of reference.
