Character Portrait: Raven McGallahan

0.00 INK

Raven stepped downstairs slowly, silently dreading the day ahead. She was fully decked out in her oldest clothing: black leggings, a black and white plaid skirt, black combat boots with white laces, a black t-shirt with a white skull, a black sweater with a white zipper and the white Homestuck symbol on the back, along with black fingerless gloves and her favorite black and blue headphones hanging around her neck. She was carrying Louisa's huge traveling backpack as her own. It was rainbow striped, a unicorn in the middle with a rainbow mane and tail. It was the only color she had on her. When she walked into the kitchen, her mother smiled an awkward but kind smile, setting a cup of coffee on the table for Raven's father.

Breakfast passed without a word, and Raven left as soon as her father came downstairs. He blamed her for Louisa's death. Even though he didn't say so, it was visible in his eyes, in the cold way he looked at her. She never spoke to him anymore. She barely spoke to her mother, and she could hear her parents arguing quietly night after night about it. Raven never left the house. This was the first day she'd been outside since their relocation, and it was only for school. Raven would've dropped out of school entirely if she hadn't been so determined to make it into the Police Academy. She wanted, needed, to get into the BAU. It was her best shot at avenging Louisa.

Raven barely moved her eyes from the ground the entire time she walked. The school was on the opposite side of Tokyo, so it was a long journey. She wished it had been shorter. It gave her time to think, and every time she would she'd be reminded about how Louisa's death really had been her fault. The train ride was uncomfortable and it made her think of how much Louisa had loved trains. Every animal she passed reminded her of the times she and Louisa had always stopped at the Pet Shop on their way home. Raven was grateful when she arrived at the school. It was huge, big enough for her to get lost in. And from there, she wandered around for almost an hour before going to class, since she'd gotten there hours early.

The morning was long and painful for Oka to wake up in and get ready for school. It was the same routine. Get dressed, eat, brush teeth and leave for school. Ok so maybe it wasn't so boring, his friend Nic was there to keep him from falling back asleep. Nic was Oka's best friend, more so like a brother. Oka's Uncle was more like his dad, seeing as he had lost his family when he was five, so he has no memory of them.

"Oka, are you alright?" Nic softly placed his hand on Oka's forehead to check for a fever but Oka just shrugged and slid on his sun glasses.

"Ill be fine, it's just this god damn heat..." Oka grumbled under his breath while Nic chuckled softly.

This is what was meant by a long morning. the sun was hot and beaming down like it's never shined before in it's life. It was a drag and he felt like dying. It took them about 45 mins before they reached school. Nic always wanted to show up early to help out with school things, seeing as he was School President.

Yawning as Oka walked around the corner, he happened to find himself falling before he could see what was going on. Hadding crashed into a very small girl with jet black hair.

"Ouch..." Squinting one eye, after his sunglasses fell off, he tried to see what had just happened. His hand was under the girls head as she was pressed into his body as if he was trying to shield her from the hard ground before them. When he was about to say something, he couldn't help but stare at her and not understand why.

Raven barely knew what had hit her. She had been silently minding her own business with her music blaring through her headphones, and suddenly she found herself on the floor with a body of heat on top of her. Her headphones and backpack were flung to the side. Raven realized her situation, and in order to hide her blush she shoved the guy off and stood in a hurry. She avoided eye contact as she rushed to make sure the bag was okay. It was fine. Why was she even worried? It was just a bag. A tiny fall wasn't going to hurt it. Raven picked up her stuff and turned back to the kid, giving him an apology before continuing her walk.

Raven stopped at the other end of the hallway to pull out the school paper from her bag. Class 1A. The paper said to see the Student Council President, but she had absolutely no idea where to go. 'Maybe I should've asked that kid for directions or something...' She thought. Then again, why talk to people when you can wander aimlessly around a gigantic school for hours? Raven didn't even care anymore. She found the stairs and went up, eventually reaching the roof. There she took a seat against a wall and studied her map of the school. It didn't help one bit.

'Now what?'

"Uh..." Before he could let himself say something, she had shoved him off and was up before before he knew it.

Nic rushed over, but stopped slightly as the girl rushed by him not even noticing him. Turning his attention now over to Oka he looked at him confused. "Everything alright?"

"Guess so." Dusting his pants off he looked in the direction of where the girl went. "Who was she?"

"I haven't seen her before, I am guessing she must be the new girl....-" Nic Grabbed Oka's arm and looked at his hand. "It's already swelling. It'll bruise in no time, go to the nurse before it gets worse."

"Im fine." He jerked his arm back and bent over to pick up his ipod when he had realized that this Ipod wasn't his. It looked like it, but he knew right away that it wasn't. "Dammit, where did she go?"

"Oka!" Nic called after, but didn't follow.

Rushing into the direction of where the girl went, he had no luck finding her. "Fuck..." With a quick punch to the wall he turned on his heel and noticed the students all rushing into school by now, going to class or grabbing their things, at this point there was too many to even try finding her. He best luck was either lunch or waiting by the school gate after wards.

Mean while, he glanced at the Ipod and then shoved it into his pocket.

Raven realized no sound was coming out of her headphones, and she went to turn her iPod back on when she realized it was missing. She checked every pocket, every nook in her bag, even her boot where she hid it sometimes. Nowhere. 'Shit...' It must have fallen out when she fell. Great. Oh well, she needed to get a new one anyways. Raven noticed that students had started coming into the school, and in groups. It started getting crowded, so Raven slipped underneath the staircase to wait out the fuss. She hated crowds with a passion.

After the mass in the hallway had thinned out, Raven started walking again. She looked up to find that the sign above her read "Student Council". Just where she needed to be. She opened the door slowly, just to find that the room was completely empty. Raven breathed a sigh of frustration. She probably missed the President, they probably was in class already. 'Now what? I don't even know where I am!' Raven flopped over onto a chair by the door and stared at the map, trying to figure out her whereabouts.

It wasn't long after the halls where empty that Nic and Oka met up again, but this time Nic was holding a bunch of papers and Oka was holding the ipod talking away.

"Im telling you, I looked everywhere and she wasn't anywhere to be found."

"Oka, maybe she was talking to the head master? Just give it time, you'll find her." Nic chuckled as Oka opened the Student Council room for Nic.

Nic walked in and placed the papers down on a desk near the windows and began to put them down in their rightful place.

"Can't you use your President skills and look her up for me? It wont take long."

"There is over 300 students here."

"And?" Oka sat down on the couch that was facing the window.

Apart from the area by the doors that had a few desks and chairs for the student council members, they also had a couch for napping at, which was good for when Oka wanted to skip class, just like he was now.

"I wonder if she had any good music." He looked at the Ipod as he laid there with his hand behind his head and the other holding the ipod before his face up in the air.

"Mowww~" Oka's cat jumped down from the window ledge and into the arm of the couch, bending over to rub into Oka's cheek with it's nose.

Nic smiled softly shaking his head at the cat, as he sat down at his desk. Chuckling softly, he didn't have to look to noticed that someone else apart from them was in the room, he just thought it to be rude to interrupt people while they were talking. But seeing as Oka was now mumbling to his cat now, Nic finally looked up at the lady.

"Was there anything you needed Princess?" His smile was gentle and purely kind.

Raven was somewhat relieved when someone finally acknowledged her presence, they hadn't even noticed her when they walked in. It was the boy who'd crashed into her, along with some blonde guy she assumed was the Student Council President, and a cat. The blonde boy spoke to her. "Hm? Oh, yeah, I guess." Raven stood, her eyes, wandering to the red-headed kid by the window. She spotted her iPod in his hand and walked over, yanking it out of his hand and walking back over to the blonde. "I have this paper the school gave me last week, it says I'm supposed to talk to you on the first day of school."

Raven set the paper down on the desk in front of the blonde boy. He looked like he'd be the school's idol or something. He was blonde. Blonde blonde blonde. That one tiny factor in his appearance was bothering her so much it hurt. Her hair had once been blonde too, since she dyed it black after Louisa's death. She'd changed nearly everything about herself in an effort to erase the pain from her mind, and nothing had worked. "You know, nevermind..." Raven stormed out of the room in a sudden pit of rage, using her hatred of herself to keep from crying.

"Hey!-" Oka turned his body on the couch to yell at Nic, but realized it wasn't his old time friend, but a very small girl with jet black hair, the same girl who had been driving him partly insane. Laying his chin on the arm of the couch he glanced over at the cat. "Well that was just rude and to think I was going to apologize to her and return it."

The cat meowed and pawed his nose softly as if to say 'It's ok.'

Ignoring Oka, Nic looked at the paper that was handed to him. "And how is it you are feeling? that was some fall. I could lead you to the nurse's office first, if you like--"

But before he could hand her papper back, she was leaving in rage out the door. Frowning a bit, Nic placed the paper back down on his desk and leaned back in his chair.

"I was sure that I was being nice, or was i wrong?"

"That brat!" Oka got up irritated, he didn't like people mistreating his friend, to him it was different, it was alright if it was to him, but not to Nic.

"Hey!" Storming after her he finally caught up, grabbing her wrist and yanking her to face him. "What's your...-" The teary eyes stopped him from yelling at her, and something inside him turned from rage to gentleness in one steady heart beat. This was the first time he had seen a girl cry up front. His grip softened up an he couldn't stop himself from grabbing her face gently and kissing her with a hot passion.

"Oka..." Nic's voice snapped Oka back into reality.

He had no words for what he had just done. He had just stared at her in surprise as if she was the one who kissed him.

"I am so sorry..please forgive him." Nic kept his distance, not wanting to offended the girl in anyway.

Raven's only emotion was shock. Pure shock. She couldn't even think of words to say, she just stared at him. She'd never before been so close to someone. Never in that kind of way. She wanted to hit the guy, but she also didn't. Her brain was flooded and she couldn't think straight, so all she did was turn on her heel and walk away without a word. Before she could even regain her senses she was outside the building, standing in the middle of a sidewalk outside the school's perimeter. '...what the hell just happened?' Raven decided school wasn't the best idea right now, and started walking back down the hill towards the train station.

Raven sat on the train and didn't get off until it had made three cycles through Tokyo. When she got off, she had a plan. She made the trek back to the school and stood in wait outside the school gates, listening to Bach and doodling in her sketchbook. She waited there for hours. No one seemed to pay her any mind, at least not until school got out. Students gave her odd looks when they passed, nothing out of the ordinary. Almost half the school exited through that gate. But the person she waited for never came. Not for a long while.

Oka had let the girl go and Nic had gone to class helping new teachers out and students. Oka on the other hand felt mentally ill. He had no idea what had just happened, he wasn't even sure it was him controlling himself anymore. he was so convinced that he thought someone was pulling his strings like he was a puppet. But sadly enough that idea blew over.

"It's time to go." Nic called over to Oka, who had fallen asleep on the couch in the S.C(student council) room. Stretching as he got up the cat pounced onto his shoulders, wrapping itself to stay ontop.

"You should keep him at home before we get into trouble."

"It's not like the Head Master cares, she's a cat lover anyways." Oka yawned.

They were the last to make it out of the school, only because they were always the once to close the gates behind them after the teachers left.

"I feel kind of bad that you have to do all this Nic."

"It's fine, I don't mind it one bit. It's only for a week and then the Head Master will be doing this. She had just had a baby and needed my help."

"Oh ah, my uncle said it was alright for us to live on our own, so let me know when you are ready to move out." Oka said with a cheeky grin on his face. It was the first grin he had made in a long time.

Nic chuckled and nodded over to the gate. "Looks like I'll be locking the gate myself tonight, make sure she doesn't walk home alone. There are bad people out."

"Got it." Oka shoved his hands in his pockets and walked passed the girl a bit and stopped on the side walk near the road. "Come on, let's go so Nic can lock up. I'll take you home."

Raven gave the guy a small glare but obliged, walking beside the redhead in her quiet way. The urge to punch the guy had gone away but she still wanted to curse him out like hell. Her phone buzzed loudly in her pocket, probably her mom wondering why she wasn't home yet, but Raven shut the phone off and ignored it. She didn't want to have to explain herself to the only person who still had good intentions for her. Raven sighed.

"You know...I almost punched you earlier." She said, keeping her gaze on the ground in front of her. "Last time I punched someone they were in the ER with a broken jaw. You're lucky."

Raven pulled her headphones off her ears, something her parents claimed she never did, and stopped in her tracks. "You do realize that if I were any other girl I would've gotten you in trouble, right? So why didn't I?" Raven asked. She wondered if he even cared. He sure didn't seem to.

He saying she was going to punch him, didn't seem to bother him in the least bit. all he was really wondering right now was if they were going the right way. Thankfully she stopped, causing him to stop too. Something though slipped through to his mind when she had asked him and he couldn't help himself for what he was about to do next.

Turning around he bent himself down to her level, with his hands still in his pockets, he had used one hand to rest on his knee. But when he had done this, his face was closer than he had hoped for.

"Then why don't you? Nic is right by the gate, if you wanted to, he'll do it. Just ask." His eyes bored into hers, not looking away, he showed he wasn't kidding, because it was true. His friend would do the right thing, even if it was about Oka.

The warmth from her body started to swirl up between them and for all he knew it was his body heat too. and even though it had gotten cooler outside, her scent was intoxicating. So he puled away and threw his hands up behind his head, causing his shirt and jacket to lift a little showing his flesh.

"Anyways, which way do we go? Im not about to let you walk in the dark, whether you can kick my ass or not." He smirked at her waiting for her to answer him.

Raven almost smirked, but her ruse of rebellion kept her from it. "You don't have to walk me home. You shouldn't, actually." Raven said, suddenly uncomfortable. She didn't even want to think about what her mother would say if she saw Raven with another human being. Even less what her father wouldn't say.

"...I...don't want you to come, if that's okay. It wouldn't be pretty." Raven started walking to the station, giving the kid a small wave. She hoped he wouldn't follow, but she had a feeling he wouldn't leave her alone even if she did kick his ass.

Raven's phone buzzed again. 'I thought I turned it off...' She pulled the phone out of her pocket, only to remember that it was an iPhone and couldn't be turned off that easily. It was her father this time. "...hey, um, do you mind staying for a minute? She turned back to the kid, unaware of the tiny glimpse of fear in her eyes. She answered the call. "Hey-" She coukd barely say anything before she was bombarded with questions and angry words. After about three minutes her father told her to come home or face consequences before angrily hanging up.

"Um...I gotta go."

He sighed heavily once she started ranting with her words. It wasn't like he was going to take her all the way home like some sort of stalker. Just part of the way was good enough for him. Once her phone went off, everything about her changed in one instant. He could feel and see it.

"Hm." Shoving his hands into his coat pocket it, he walked up right behind her once he picked up her phone. It allowed him to hear everything that was being said. Once the wall was done, he placed his hands on her shoulders. "Just tell him that the Student committee needed help with after school projects of welcoming new students. Trust me it'll work. Say you couldn't get out of it because the teacher made you stay along with a bunch of other kids."

He turned her around and smiled a little. "Im taking you home, but I wont go all the way. Wasn't my plan to in the first place. Noe let's go before you get it far worse trouble." He nodded towards the direction

Raven was actually grateful for the company. "I'll try it, but I doubt he'll listen." Raven spoke while she walked. "He'll probably be getting a phone call from the school saying I wasn't in class, won't that be fun." When they arrived at the station, Raven turned to the redhead. "I just realized I never actually introduced myself."

"I'm Raven. Raven McGallahan."

And with that, she stepped onto the train right as the doors closed behind her, leaning back onto them as the train started moving.

When she arrived home, she wasn't surprised to find her father sitting at the kitchen table, waiting. He didn't say anything. Just glared at her. Raven ignored him and walked right past, upstairs and into her room. She almost wanted to punch another dent in the wall but decided against it, and instead she just kicked off her shoes and climbed into bed, blasting Mozart into her ears.

He didn't really speak as the spoke while walking to the station. He was planning on taking her a bit farther than that, but she had told him her name and the doors closed right there before anything could happen.

So her name matched her hair, it didn't surprise him. But he lifted his hand and waved at the train while mumbling under his breath. "See you later birdy."

It was a long night after that and he didn't get much sleep. When morning came he dreaded the day that it did. The sun was as bright as ever, just like every other day, but because of the lack of sleep. The sun and the heat had just pissed him off.

It was the weekend, so he didn't have to get up for school, thank god for that. And it wasn't like he could just sleep it off either.

So instead he had taken a cold shower and waited until nightfall before he went outside to the store for some soda and ice pops. If it was hot today, it had just meant that it would be hot for the rest of the week.

Raven spent Saturday in her room, drawing and practicing on the old wooden piano she had sitting under her window. It was peaceful. Both her parents were at work, so in reality, she could've done anything she wanted to without them even noticing. Around noon she decided against sitting inside all day. She changed into a pair of dark jean shorts and a black tank top, rolling up the sleeves on her sweater as she walked so the heat wasn't so bothersome. She was born in Florida, so it wasn't that bad, but after a while she dreaded wearing black and put her hair up in a tiny bun.

She spent the day wandering through manga stores, spending a bunch of the money she'd been saving. She'd been saving since she was three so it didn't make much of a difference. By the time she made it back home, she'd bought at least six bags of manga and other merchandise.

By the time her parents got home, Raven had read almost everything she'd bought and stashed it onto her alphabetized bookshelf. Her mother knocked on the door quietly, stating that she and her husband were going to talk to the morgue. Louisa's funeral was in the planning for next Sunday, and Raven wasn't excited.
