Chapter 5 - Lunch Time part 1

After some tedious hours of school work, through which a student kept on interrupting every few minutes to provide “commentary”, the school bell ring couldn’t have come at a better moment.

“Well, we will stop right here and continue after lunch.” Luna said as she put the marker down and turned to her class “You all can go to the cafeteria now, and remember, be on your best behavior!” She didn’t get a reply because the students were already halfway through the door.

“Should have seen that coming…” Luna mumbled as she too exited classroom E-5 and made her way to the teacher’s lounge, “I hope sister remember our deal…” she was really going to need some coffee if she wanted to make it through the day.

Discord had been an annoyance these past periods, always making a remark about what she was saying trying to earn some reaction from anyone. His classmates only found it annoying except for Sonata who would giggle at his jokes. 1 out of 5 times this would annoy Starlight to the point of telling them to keep quiet, which then make Discord, keep on egging her until Luna put a stop to it, only to repeat the process all over again. And with Discord already having an entire week of detention, he took it as a sign of having nothing to lose at this point.

“I need to find a way to keep Discord under control… but what?” Since Detention didn’t faze the boy at all, she needed a creative solution to her situation. “Ugh. Can’t think right now, need coffee.” At least for the next hour, Discord and the rest weren’t her problem.

[x-x-x]

The cafeteria was half-way filled with hungry students when the new six members of class E-5 entered. And the moment they did, all conversation came to a halt filling the room with silence. Of course, none of the transfer students were surprised by any of this.

All except for Scorpan who was feeling pretty self-conscious when the dozens of eyes stared at the group. “God, what should we do? What should we do?”

Of course, Discord being who he is, decided to make a scene out of the whole thing. The dishevel boy walked in front of their group and said in a ominous voice. “The hell are you looking at?” and then he did it.

The Crazy Eyes.

Nobody knew how he learned it, but everyone in St. Everfree knew about Discord’s signature move; everyone having been at the receiving end at least once.

For Scorpan, the Crazy Eyes looked like someone had hit Discord’s nape with enough force to make his eyeballs pop out and jumped out of the skull. But in reality there were no agreed upon words as to how to describe this potent stare, since those who received it would describe it differently from person to person.

Still, the effect was almost the same for everyone; an abrupt feeling of dread and terror that disappeared as soon as it came. That and the sound of a whip cutting the air is always heard upon receiving the stare.

And sure enough, everyone in the cafeteria reeled back in sudden fear.

A reaction Discord enjoyed greatly.

He then walked with an ostentatious swagger towards one of the tables where several students were sitting. There he unleashed the Crazy Eyes once more, making everyone sitting at the table bolt out of there in fear, except for one poor soul who ended up fainting and falling backwards into the floor.

“Come on guys, I got us all a table!” Discord turned around to his classmates with a goofy smile, only for them to walk past him.

“As if! I better starve to death.” Chrysalis scoffed at him as she passed him.

“The wench speaks the truth, you are very aggravating.” Sombra concurred with Chrysalis’ opinion.

“Do I even have to say something?” Starlight rolled her eyes as she too passed on the offer.

“Hn.” Surprising nobody, Tirek also refused.

That left poor Scorpan alone.

On one hand Scorpan was anxious to be around Discord, since he had been the unfortunate victim of many of the dishevel boy’s pranks back in St. Everfree; the shaving cream bomb in all prime numbers lockers, the itchy powder in the toilet seats and the extra-waxed floors were just some of the first that came to mind.

On the other hand, seeing the prankster get rejected by everyone was a very sad sight to see and it hit a little close to home since he had experienced similar rejections in the past. So he decided to take the initiative and show kindness to Discord.

“D-Discord, if you want I could…”

“Yeah, yeah, whatever! Just keep on moving short stuff.” Discord waved him off dismissively and walked away, leaving Scorpan stone cold in affliction.

‘Rejected…once more…’ Dismissed by the one rejected by everyone else. That was another blow to his diminishing self-esteem. Feeling his own sense of self-worth slowly leaving his body, Scorpan sat on the table that Discord cleared out, and pondered his place in the world at large.

While Scorpan sat on an empty table an existential debate with himself. Starlight Glimmer decided to take advantage of Discord’s little stun. Despite her irritation with the boy, she ought to thank him because now she got the opportunity to get in the good side of everyone else at this school.

Starlight walked up and helped the “poor boy” that ended up on the floor. “Here let me help you.” She offered with a sweetly voice to the unconscious boy as she lift him off the ground. “Could someone tell me where the Nurse’s Office is?” She really didn’t need help with directions since the Nurse’s office was part of the guided tour they received earlier, but if she could get some students to “help” her, she could establish some good rep points from there.

“Of course, let me help.” One guy, with curly blue hair, stepped forward and took the unconscious guy from Starlight. “I’ll take him to the nurse.”

“Allow me to help.” Starlight insisted, “Even if it was that awful Discord’s fault, I feel somewhat responsible. Please?”

“That’s very nice of you…” The boy said somewhat surprised, he didn’t expect that one of the new transfer students would act this nice.

“Starlight. My name is Starlight Glimmer; what is yours?” She gave him a very friendly smile, but not too friendly, otherwise she might come off as creepy.

“Curly Winds.” He answered pleasantly surprised by Starlight friendliness.

“Nice to meet you. I’m happy to see that in this school people that care for others.” She complimented as she helped Curly with their fellow student in need. “Come, we should get him to the Nurse’s as soon as possible.” This earned her a smile and a nod in agreement.

“Yes. Let’s go.”

“Hook, Line and Sinker!” Starlight had to force a smirk from forming in her face as she walked out of the cafeteria.

Chrysalis who had watch the whole sham from the side, couldn’t help muttering. “Pathetic.”

It truly was. Seeing a once foe for the title of “Ruler of Everfree” scrambling for “brownie points” from these “preppy” kids was nothing short of sickening. Then again, Starlight was always a sucker for the approval of others.

Now, the Queen of Everfree wasn’t blind, she knew what game the former Student Body President was playing at. This wasn’t a “let’s try making new friends and have a fresh start at the new school”-kind of thing; no, Starlight was planting the seeds for her future power in this new garden called Canterlot High.

Chrysalis didn’t have to think deeply about it since the reason was more than obvious. Starlight was desperate for power. The power she lost when Everfree crumbled to the ground. No school, no official title, no power. And with no power over anyone anymore, her lackeys and enforcers had no reason to stick with her.

She was alone. She had no one to lord over. So she has to start from the bottom of the barrel, to try and get some semblance of her former power back. And with just a year and a half before graduation, she won’t get that far. The Queen would’ve found it sad if it weren’t so hilarious too.

Unlike the former president, who lorded over with intimidation tactics, Chrysalis had the respect of the members of her gang and even if they were scattered all around the School District, they would remain loyal to her and their group. That is why she had no need to try and gather any “soldiers” from this school. Instead Chrysalis was just going to sit back and watch the plan Starlight had go down in flames.

And she would laugh.

Laugh until it hurt.

But right now, it was time to get some lunch.

Author's Note:

Sorry for the short chapter, but I had been busy and I decided to post half the chapter than making you wait a lot more for the entire thing. Besides, I think it was a neat place to end the chapter.

Again Sorry for the length, but I'll try to finish the rest and post it as soon as I have the chance.
