Here is Chapter One of my MegaMan fic. I know it's probably not the greatest in the world,but I'm still working out the kinks. Please forgive me!!!
Chapter One-Chaud Gets a Surprise
"What do you mean,"we have to take her"? Chaud Blaze demanded. He was glaring at the stiff looking man at his office doorway. He'd been working on advancements for Protoman when his secretary had buzzed in to say that his late aunt's lawyer was there. He was there to explain that Chaud's father was now the legal guardian of his sister,Rebekkah. Chaud was furious that this girl,this small girl, was coming into his life,after not knowing she even existed! "Look,pal,we're not interested. Send her to an orphanage or something."
"I'm afraid I can't do that. My instructions were very clear." The lawyer replied. He turned in the doorway,and made a slight gesture. His charge walked in,slowly,fearful. "It's alright,Rebekkah. This is your big brother, Chaud."
Chaud's eyes widened. There,before his eyes was a minature version of his mother. The child had his own platinum locks,neatly braided into two neat ponytails on either side of her head. Her eyes were ice blue. She was gazing up at her brother with wide,curious eyes. "Um......where do I sign?" He asked informally. He was instantly drawn to the little girl,seeing her a last ditch connection to his mother. His father wouldn't talk about her,and Chaud did miss her terribly.
"Right here,Sir." The lawyer handed him a bundle of papers. "She's already been fed and everything for tonight."
"Geez, you make her sound like a dog!" Chaud muttered, as he kept one eye on his sister. The six-year-old was eyeing his computer desk. "Don't touch any of that,Rebekkah." But she hadn't moved to touch anything at all. She seemed to be gaping at it all. Chaud grunted slightly,as he began to fill out the paper work. "Haven't you ever seen a computer before?"
"Uh uh....." She walked over to him, as he was finishing up. "What is it?"
Chaud almost choked, but mangaged to smile instead. "Come here and sit,and I'll explain." Chaud pulled her into his lap when he returned to his desk. "A computer is what mostly everything here in Dentech is run by. We live in a world now where computers are a necessity." He picked up his PET. "This is a Personal Terminal,or a PET. Almost everyone in Dentech has one." He smiled as Protoman appeared on the screen. "This is what is called a NetNavi. Everyone I know has one. Father and I are always working to perfect the PET systems. Say hi to my sister,Protoman."
"How do you do?" Protoman seemed to smile,even if it wasn't visible through his visor. "What is your name,Miss?"
"I'm Rebekkah." She looked up at Chaud. "Can I have a Net friend too?" She liked the idea of having her own personal friend to play with.
"It's a pleasure to meet you,Miss Rebekkah." Protoman replied. He studied her through his visor. She was about the same size as Glyde's net operator.
"Do you have a PET?" Chaud asked,fearing he already knew the answer. What kind of place had his aunt lived in that didn't have any kind of computers?
"Uh uh." Rebekkah replied again, now moving the window. She straightened her too tight socks a little,as she gazed outside the office. "This is a really big building."
"Well,this is a pretty big company,Rebekkah." Chaud replied. "I tell you what. I'm going to be working late tonight,so I'll check and see if we have any extra PETs in storage. Okay?"
The girl merely nodded. She felt like an alien from another world. Computers,Navis,PETs? Why hadn't her aunt had any of this stuff? She felt really ignorant in this world.
"Don't worry if you don't understand everything right now, Rebekkah. I'll get you into a school as soon as I can. Then you can catch up with everyone else your age."
Again, she only nodded. She didn't have anything to say. No one back home had told her it would be so hard to live in the city. Soon,Chaud called for one of his drivers to take Rebekkah to her new home,a large mansion at the edge of the city.
"I'll be home later tonight. I have asked my old nursemaid to take care of you for now, alright?"
Rebekkah nodded sullenly. "Alright,Chaud." She walked out of his office,following a guy called Lorenzo. "Can we stop at a burger place?"
"I'm afraid not,Ms. Rebekkah. Your brother has asked I take you directly home." He held the door open for her once they got to the car. "Please buckle your seat belt,Miss." Lorenzo went around to his side, and got in. Before long,they were on the road,heading for her new home.
