An ed, edd n eddy fanfic
Author's Note: Hi DMan51 here, I'm so sorry for the long wait, my Microsoft word was having a lot of issues and the software of my computer got messed up again by a huge virus, so I had to rewrite this chapter by scratch. Other than that words can't describe how proud of the helpful reviews I'm getting particularly from one reviewer. This chap didn't quite reach my expectations but hopefully I will update in a more persistent pace, and satisfy you all .
Chapter-4 I think I'm in love
Girl's Locker Room 4:32 pm.
Four hours had passed since lunch, kids had taken their bus home while a selected number of students decided to stay and watch the upcoming game for Peach Creek. It was now a little under thirty minutes a way for Peach Creek's first game of the year to begin.
Nazz was in the locker room in her cheer leading outfit sitting down on a bench wondering why anybody would want to ruined her reputation.
"Nazz, I don't think Kevin would be the type to put out those stupid rumors of you sleeping with fifty men." Said one of her squad members.
"I beginning to doubt that too, but you don't know Kevin like I do Jennette." Nazz said as she put her right boot on.
"I know enough about him to not hurt you deliberately, something must have happened between you two." Jennette pointed out as she put her hand to her sides.
"It's a really long story," Nazz said with a perplex look on her face. "I'm really not sure what it is myself but I know for a fact he had something to do with it," Nazz said with uncertainty.
Jenny pouted after hearing that bit from Nazz. "After the game, I'm going to have a talk with him, she said with finality and leaned her back against the locker.
"Don't worry, we can like totally do something about it," said another one of her squad members, as she put a hand on Nazz's shoulder. "If you had anyone on your side it will be us," said the same menber, and that bit of pep talk put a smile on her face.
The locker room was silent before a loud voice shook them out of it.
"GET YO BUTTS DOWN TO THE STADIUM THIS INSTANT!" The voice that was unmistakably female said at the top of her lungs.
"Looks like are monster of an instructor is calling us," Jennette said facetiously as Nazz and the others walked out of the room.
Football Field 4:45 pm.
It was only fifteen minutes left before the first game for Peach Creek this year was to finally set off. The Peach Creek team could be seen doing a quick warm up on the field. A dark-skinned boy wearing a long sleeve white shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers was carrying a piece of wood with him, who was on his way to the stadium to watch the football game.
"This is game is going to be one heck of a showdown huh Plank?" the boy said to the piece of wood as he ventured for his destination.
Of course the piece of wood known as plank never responded back.
"Hey Johnny, are you ever going to get tire of talking to a piece of wood, you're sixteen years old for Petes sake! Said the voice behind him.
Johnny then turned to the source of the voice. "For the last time Eddy, Plank's been with me my whole life, so there is no way I'm getting rid of my old pal plank just because I'm weird or not like anybody else. So if it weren't for him I don't know if I still be living today!" Johnny proclaim as he stick his tongue out in defiance.
During the four years, Johnny became good friends of the Eds before Kevin and Rolf befriended them. Johnny especially became close friends with Edd, as they take the same biology class, and spend a lot of time studying on the subject and looking at different plants for fun.
"Eddy, lets not antagonize Johnny's bizarre nature... he just can't help it." Edd whispered to the shorter boy.
"Yeah right." Eddy muttered under his breath, as he sat on one of the chairs on the stadium.
"Anyway what's up with that chick anyway? I swear to God I don't understand women at all!" Eddy exclaimed loudly as he raised his arms in the air in exasperation.
Edd too deep in his thoughts took a seat at the right of Eddy and Johnny took a seat next to Edd.
' What's up with Marie. I've never seen her act so timid around us before.' Edd pondered as he lean his back to take a little nap until a voice snapped him out of his short slumber.
"-erybody!" The voice now belonging to Ed yelled joyfully.
"Did I miss anything." Edd said as he quickly wipe the drool off his face.
Nope nothing at all it just Ed. Eddy replied looking rather perplexed by Ed's early appearance.
"Lumpy shouldn't you be in the locker room getting ready for the big game?"
" No can't do Eddy, I just make sure you guys are here to finally see our team beat Lime Brookes once and for all.
"Its Lemon Brooke Ed, and we came here to wish you luck and to see if you can meet your endeavors." Edd said as he looked at Eddy.
"Plank wish you luck too Ed Johnny said happily, staring at the piece of wood.
As Ed conversed with the others, Kevin and the other players came out of the locker room and started practicing their drills.
"Hey Ed! Aren't you going to join us!" Kevin exclaimed out loud so the dopey kid could hear him.
"Oh, yeah! coming Kev!" Ed shout back and put his helmet back on and joined Kevin and his other teammates for his drills.
"Hey is it that go-go Nazz, and her team," Rolf pointed out as, Indeed Nazz and her squad was coming out of the locker room.
Kevin, looked back at the cheerleaders looking at Janette at first and wave at her who returned the wave to him with a smile on their face.
Nazz was looking a bit upset, when she lay eyes on Kevin. Kevin then register the stare Nazz was given him, and wanted to come and start a conversation with her, but didn't have enough time as a whistle was heard.
Eddy nudge Edd with his elbow to wake him up from his dream.
"Hey sockhead it's Nazz! Eddy exclaimed as he point a finger at her.
From what they're sitting, there was no way Nazz can see them, Edd was a bit disappointed with that predicament.
Kanker's Trailer Park 4:52pm.
As the Peach Creek team was getting ready for the big game of the year, Marie was home internally having mixed feelings on getting back on Nazz for taking Edd away from her.
Marie's room or more like their room was a mess. Old magazines, banana peels, dirty clothes and chips were on the floor mostly on Lee's and May's side. Marie wearing an orange t-shirt and blue sweat pants was listening to her Rock and Roll as she was practicing on her electric guitar. Over the years after 'meeting' Eddy's brother she began to dabbled on different activities to see what she can do for a living, and to forget about what she and her sisters were about to do with Eddy's brother. That's why she walked on the path of becoming a talented musician and played some instruments like the guitar, and joined track and field for a short time, just to drown out the bad memories of her father and what Eddy's sick older brother about to give him what he wanted. Marie shook her head from side to side to stop thinking about it.
'I need to pull myself together.' Marie thought as she finished playing her guitar. she then took off her headphones and dropped them on the floor and laid her head on the pillow and thought about what happened earlier shortly after Edd and his friends lunch period.
"Of course it's worth it, you did your job well May," Marie said proudly.
"Double D and his friend doesn't look like they taking it well though," May pointed out.
Marie's smile turned into a frown, at May's obvious observation. "Who cares about how they feel. All men are vicious animals; They will want only our body, and then rape us if we don't do what they tells us, and leave our limp bodies and hunt for their next victim," Marie said conspiratorial pointing a finger on her forehead, pushing her back.
May then stop and think about what Marie just told her. May may not been the smartest person in the world but, she lived long enough to tell that bit of information is nonsense.
"Do you actually believe what you're saying Marie?" May inquire with a raised eyebrow and hands on her hips.
Marie's frown got even more pronounce after hearing May's question. "I'm damn right I do! Marie said a little to loudly as the students walking to their destination turned their heads to the source of the voice.
"That sounds like what we're doing to the Eds," May said under her breath. With that May crossed her and waited for a tongue lash from Marie.
"We're just practicing for are next performance in drama class, that's what we doing right May?" Marie said quickly hoping they will believe her lie." May nod her head to make it more believable. The crowd went on with their daily lives.
"I don't know what's gotten to you May... just go to your next class before I do something I will regret."
May just looked at Marie intently before taking off to her next class. " We're going to talk more about this later when we get home." Marie said anger clear in her voice.
With that May took off to her next class. Marie was boiling a hole in May's back before turning and bumped at the lust of her life. If one was to look at Marie, she looked like she was ready to rip someone to pieces.
"Ouch! Watch where you're going you moron," Marie yelled at the unknown person who collided with her.
"I'm so sorry for my uncoördinated motor skills," said the voice.
Marie was about to grab the person by the shirt before she register the voice, and look up to see that it was Edd. Her face soften up as Edd held out an outstretched hand, waiting for her to grab it.
"Double D?"Marie uttered out of surprise as she was about to grab his hand she heard a voice behind Edd.
"Don't tell me its a Kanker. Double D don't touch her hand, she's a slime ball!" Yelled Eddy who was about to go his gym class came and got in front of Edd to stop him from touching her hand.
But Eddy, no matter how nasty and despicable the person is they don't deserve the misfortune of getting knocked down, and besides, we're not little kids anymore. " Edd said as he grabbed Marie's hand.
"But, she's a grade A freak, she might be-"
"That's enough!" Edd shouted suprising both Marie and Eddy. "This is not the past, we evolve past that stage, people can change Eddy. Even Marie a Kanker is capable of going through changes too, so we need to start and lean forward to accept them as human beings."
"Ok, ok I understand, I'll give them a chance, but if she and her sisters start chasing us again, I'll give th-"
Marie then glare at Eddy, as the latter shut his mouth.
Marie was so stunned that Edd was standing up for her, she couldn't even uttered a single word.
Eddy didn't want to admit it but he was really applauded that Edd actually defended a Kanker sister. But the thought that's been bugging him and his friends at lunch for a while resurged back to his memory bank.
"Is it you or your skanky sisters the one who made all that gossip on Nazz earlier?" Eddy inquired smugly as he grab a sheet of paper that had a picture of Nazz in a bikini and had the alleged information about her, typed on it.
"Marie, began to sweat bullets as her eyes move from left to right, hoping some sort of miracle to take place. A small part of her wanted to tell the truth and apologized to Nazz whose taking it the hardest for obvious reasons. But that side completely vanish, when her stubborn side clouded her judgement, thinking about May
"This sheet of paper is all over the school and according to Ed it has the smell of- before Eddy can say anymore the first bell rang, prompting Marie to make her escape and ran to her next class, with a lot on her mind.
" Oh come on! Why does everything keep interrupting me! Eddy shout out the hall way voice, vibrating through the school.
" I've never seen Marie look so vulnerable. Could she be the one who did this to Nazz," Edd thought as he looked the sheet of paper of the false information about her.
Marie's mind was all over the place, A part of her thought about why she couldn't confess to Edd, and apologize to Nazz about the stupid gossip. She couldn't stand herself for being so immature, and hurting her crush in the process after he was kind to her, in retaliation for what she and her sisters deplorable antics of forcing themselves on the Eds for the past four years. But the rest of her only want Edd for herself and wanted Nazz to suffer for making her love falling for her.
'Knock! Knock! Knock!
"The door's unlock you numskull." Marie said irritatingly.
The door opened May poked her head through it.
" Dinner is ready Marie. You didn't hear my voice?"
"No I was too busy in my zone, what's for dinner," Marie ask May as nicely as she can.
" What else its hamburgers and cream soda," May said as it like it was the most obvious thing in the world.
Marie sigh as she got off her bed and went with May to the dinner table. "Darn it Lee when the heck are you going to challenge yourself and cook us a decent meal for once." Marie thought as she grab a seat and sat down.
May sat at the left of Marie taking a bite from her burger, while Lee was at the opposite of Marie looking at her looking spacing out.
Lee has matured the most out of the three, she towered over Marie by several inches. During her last year in middle school, she became an honor student so she can get into a good college and become a lawyer. She also joined the tennis team to stay in shape and blow off some steam.
"What's on your mind Marie," Lee said as she finished her first burger.
"Nothing really, I just can't get my mind off of Double D, I'm beginning to think what May said about being good men out there is true." Marie said with a genuine smile on her face as she took a drink of her soda.
"Why would you belive that idiot, she don't know what she's talking about." Lee said with a huge scowl on her face.
"Hey! I right here you know!" May shouted indignantly.
Forget about that punk Double D Marie! Lee said not paying attention to May.
No matter how 'good' they seem, men are still men its their destiny for them to act as lowlife animals like Eddy's disgusting brother four years ago and besides all men are scum anyway, Lee said in a shrug.
Marie then look at her half eaten burger like it was the most interesting thing in the world. "For some reason I don't think all men are bad, my dreamboat doesn't seem like the type of person who will do anything sleazy like Eddy's brother, Marie pointed out, as she got up and pour her contents in the trash and put her plate in the sink.
"But still, He will turn your back on you when you least expect to," Lee said smugly.
Marie then snarl and then begin to climb up a few steps before turning her head to Lee. May still on the table know what was about to happen next, so she got off the table and went to the living room to watch tv.
"I don't know what's gotten to you Lee, but base on the way we act toward the Eds we are no different from the men Mom's been with." With that Marie went back to her room to continue practice on her guitar.
As Marie went to her room she closed the door and opened her drawl and pick up a photo of her along with her sisters and the Eds after they got out of the mansion her and her sisters pranked the Eds four years ago. She looked at the terrified Edd in particular.
