The Blooming Flower Club
Ch1- Two Friends
It was a late night in the neighborhood of Greystone, a Brown bunny girl about 8 was sitting at her PC dressed in a plastic costume resembling armor playing a game, the game she was playing was First Person Shooter, called Damned.
"Okay, now that we have defeated the level boss, let's see what is behind the big stone doors" Daisy spoke into the microphone on the side of her face.
"No, they would not hit us with a second boss, let's see if we can that Like bar up," Daisy said, clear that she was streaming as she fiddled with the controller in her paws as she read the comments her fanbase typed in.
"I Don't think the Dead Lord is cheap, It's a matter of striking him when the time is too right, too early and he'll defect your attacks at you, too late and you've sustained damage. It's all about hitting that sweet spot" Daisy said pressing the buttons on her controller as the character headed through the doorway vanishing into a portal.
"Well that wraps up the stream for today, don't forget to hit that subscribe button," Daisy said, holding up a plastic sword, pointing to the corner of the screen as her streaming had ended. Daisy took a deep sigh turning off her computer as she walked to her bed undoing the costume she was wearing as she fell back on her bed, sighing in relief.
"It's the price of fame," Daisy said, despite the fact, her channel was not extremely popular; she was known around her school and had a small fan base. Daisy undid the plastic armor she had bought at a nearby costume store. Daisy enjoyed cosplaying when she streamed her games.
After taking her costume off the young bunny laid on her bed, wearing only a pair of underwear as she did her evening stretches. Daisy always kept an eye on the clock, so she did not miss dinner, knowing her mother would barge into her bedroom and embarrass her on Livestream. After doing her stretches Daisy put her pajamas on and headed downstairs, where her mother was chopping up veggies, into a stew. Daisy sat at the table as she examined her food, thanking her mom for the meal.
"Potato and carrot stew again?" Daisy muttered, running her spoon through the bowl as her mom sat down, reminding Daisy they were not made of money and could not go out and enjoy fancy meals.
"You know I'm hitting it off on my live streams, maybe one day I'll be able to monetize my videos," Daisy said, taking a spoonful from her bowl, placing it in her mouth as her mother reminded Daisy not to forget her roots. Daisy thought back to her early childhood out in the country, working in her parent's garden. After her dad passed away her mom had to sell their farm and moved to the town of Greystone.
"Well I have school tomorrow so I should be heading to bed," Daisy said, placing her spoon in the empty bowl as her mother wished her a good night rest and headed off the bed.
The Next Morning Daisy woke up, changing into her school clothes, consisting of pink overalls and a white shirt with flowers printed on the front. Daisy left her home and began walking on the trip to school where she caught up with her best friend, Vicky, a female fox who was wearing a blue skirt and a matching shirt, Vicky waved to her friend as the two began walking to school together.
"So, I saw you live stream last night, that was really impressive defeating the Bone Lord on the highest difficulty," Vicky said, impressed with her friend's gaming abilities as they were on the walk to school. Classes were usual for the two of them were in their art class where they were instructed to paint flowers. Daisy was running a brush-covered in green paint across her paper. She then held the tip of her brush in a muddy glass of water, twirling it as she dipped the wet brush in red paint, painting the actual flowers.
"Nice work girls" Their teacher, an adult zebra, said looking at their paintings as they smiled.
"Thank you Mr. Rossman" Daisy replied as he smiled at Daisy before turning to Vicky, whose painting focused more on a single flower than the field that Daisy was painting as he looked at the young fox.
"Vicky, if you don't mind would you help me after school, I could give you some extra credit" Mr. Rossman offered as Vicky nodded, happy to help her teacher as they finished their paintings and left for lunch.
Upon reaching the lunchroom Daisy got behind Vicky as they headed in the lunch line, picking up their food. Vicky grabbed a tray of pasta and a slice of bread as Daisy did the same.
"You want anything from the snack bar?" Vicky asked as Daisy sighed, admitting she had a soft spot for the school's brownies but snacks were extra as Vicky smiled putting two chocolate brownies on her tray as they both grabbed a carton of milk and approached the cashier, paying for their lunches.
Upon walking to their usual table the two sat down as the kids at the table got up and left. Vicky took one of the brownies off her tray handing it to Daisy who handled the gift softly, setting it aside as they began eating their pasta. Vicky opened her chocolate milk, placing in the straw as Daisy stood up.
"If You'll excuse me, Vicky, I have to use the bathroom real quick if you excuse me," Daisy said as she shoved the wrapped brownie in her overall front pocket as she got up and headed to the bathroom. Daisy entered the girls' bathroom where she saw a black wooled ewe in a white dress washing her hands, turning around.
"Well, if it isn't the new farm girl," She said turning off the sink as Daisy put her paws up.
"Mary, I'm not looking for any trouble," Daisy said to the Ewe who had been bullying her since she got to the school. Daisy did not know why Mary seemed to hate her. The Ewe simply gave a snobby chin raise and left the room drying her hands and leaving the room.
"Don't let her get to you Daisy, she thinks she's better than everyone?" a voice said belonging to a female Hyena wearing denim shorts and a collared shirt, this was Leslie, a tomboyish girl who was often seen at recess as she was adjusting her shorts as Daisy asked why she bullied her in specific, Daisy had never done anything to get on Mary's bad side as Leslie looked down.
"Well, to be fair your best friend is Vicky, you can expect some of the hatred towards her to deflect onto you," Leslie said as Daisy looked at her, defending her fox friend. Daisy considered Vicky to be one of the nicest girls in schools, she helped her with her homework, she always bought her snacks among other things as Leslie sighed.
"Daisy, there is a bit of a nasty rumor around Holdingpaw Elementary, surrounding Vicky," Leslie said not wanting to come off as offensive but factual as Daisy glared at the Hyena girl.
"According to rumors, Vicky... um, she... escorts herself to older guys" Leslie stuttered as Daisy looked at her, refusing to believe it.
"Don't she find it suspicious that she helps teachers after school, or that she always has money, but like I said it's Only a rumor, no real proof. But gossip among kids becomes as good as truth" Leslie explianed as Daisy pounded her fists together.
"I'll Prove these rumors are just that," Daisy said walking out of the bathroom.
