Chapter One: The Recruitment
A/N: Major thanks to @queendohertyplayfair who gave me the wonderful title to this story ♥♥ If you guys haven’t already, please check out her blog! She is literally the best and so nice ♥♥ And also, this is the second time writing this because my computer crashed. I’m so peeved omg
I always knew I was different from my mother, the Red Queen. Unlike her, I never really cared about being royalty, but I wasn’t about to turn down the title of princess, you’d have to be one crazy bitch to do that. I also wasn’t completely ‘off with your head’ crazy when someone made me upset.
But there were a couple ways I was similar to my mother. I held myself in very high regards, and everyone trembled in fear when I walked past. I knew how to hold my own, and no one dared mess with me. I was the Queen of the Inner Isle. I knew how to always get what I want, and no one ever told me no.
However, even the evilest of villain’s have their secrets. And mine happened to be I wasn’t truly evil. I just was able to walk the walk; talk the talk, and act the act. And man, did I do it well.
I secretly wanted to be a member of the Anti-Hero League, the ‘club’ that Yen-Sid had started for the villain children who didn’t want to be evil. Now, don’t get me wrong-I will forever be a villain kid and I will always have some slight villainous tendencies, but I just don’t want to be completely evil. It doesn’t suit me.
So that was why my best friends, Hade’s twin children Holly and Hadie, approached Yen-Sid one day after school let out to talk to him about if I was able to join the Anti-Hero League. “Yen-Sid, let’s chat,” I told him as I walked into his classroom, my blood red hair flowing past my shoulders and me going to lean against one of the tables while my friends stood by the door to watch for anyone heading this way.
“Yes? What is it, my dear?” He asked me as he gathered up his books to head home for the day, and I looked around nervously before looking at him.
“My friends and I were wondering if we could join your little club. We heard about the Anti-Hero League and we’re interested.” I told him, crossing my arms as I looked at him, and I saw a small smile form on his face.
“Ah, I was hoping you would ask, dear.” He said, going over to his desk and sitting in his chair, looking at me. “Although, I actually have a request for you. I don’t want you children coming to any meetings.” He said, which took me aback.
“Wait…what?” I asked, extremely confused. He wanted me to join but he didn’t want me to go to meetings? What the fuck type of logic is that?
Yen-Sid chuckled, nodding as he looked at me. “Yes, I don’t want you to come to any meetings- you or your friends. The thing is, I was wondering if you would be able to be a spy for me. I need a child who is extremely good at being evil or at least playing the part. And you do just that.” Yen-Sid said as he looked at me. “You do not have to be a spy, but it’s something that I would like to have.”
After a moment of thought, I looked at him. “What would being your spy involve?” I asked, honestly interested. I could keep my reputation while being apart of the Anti-Hero League.
He smiled at my question, folding his hands together. “It would involve meeting once a week in here so you can tell me your information.” He said, and I pressed my lips together as I looked at Holly and Hadie, the two of whom were watching me closely.
“What do you both think?” I asked, the two of them being my best friends so I wanted to know what they thought about this.
“I think it’s a good idea,” Holly began to say, her deep blue hair falling in her face so she blew it out of her eyes. “We would still be known as the evilest of them all in the Inner Isle, but we’re really working for good. And our families won’t completely disown us.” Holly said, to which her brother nodded.
“Exactly, that’s what I was thinking. I say we do it.” Hadie said as he crossed his arms, leaning back against the wall, and I thought about it a little further before looking to Yen-Sid.
Upon telling Yen-Sid that we were in, he grinned and stood up. “Good. Now, I need you all to act as you normally would. See if you can become close with any of the villains. Preferably ones you can trick easily who won’t ask questions. Try the Gaston boys or even Clay Clayton.” Yen-Sid said as he went to clean the chalk board, and I laughed.
“The Gaston boys are all idiots, the lot of them. Their father probably killed their brain cells by feeding them raw eggs since they were babies. They’ll be easy to trick,” I said as I folded my arms around them. Throw the older two around a pretty girl and they’re putty in your hands, and Gil, while being sweet, he was around Uma and her crew so much we didn’t have to worry about him.
Yen-Sid chuckled at my words, turning to look at me. “Rochella, while you’re right that the boys hold more muscle mass than they do brains, don’t play them for fools. They are much smarter than one would believe. I’m just saying that they would be easy to trick. But tread lightly, dear. Be sure not to arouse suspicion.” Yen-Sid warned, to which I laughed.
“You underestimate me, Yen-Sid,” I told him as I chuckled, folding my arms across my chest. “My mother is the Red Queen. I could do anything I wanted and no one would question me. They’d just say I’m as crazy as my mother. I know a lot of them do already.” I told him, and he laughed.
“Very true, princess. But still, a lot of the villain’s aren’t near as dumb as you make them out to be. You of all people know that every parent on the Isle has taught their children to be twice as villainous as their parents before them. Play your cards right, and you can do great things, my dear.” He warned me, and I rolled my eyes before looking at him.
“If you insist…but you’re taking all the fun out of it,” I said, giving him a wicked smile before turning to look at my friends. “Let’s bounce,” I said before heading to the door.
“Rochella,” Yen-Sid called, and I turned. “This is not a game. It is not meant to be fun.” He warned, and I pressed my lips together before I headed out without another word.
A/N Pt. 2: Alright, so here is chapter one of my fanfiction! It’s not going to focus too much on romance as a plot (at least I don’t want it to, maybe later on it will) and for what romance there will be it will be Gil x Rochella. Let me know what you all think; should I continue?
