Disclaimer: I do not own Gakuen Alice...okay?

Summary: When Mikan was eleven, she left the Alice Academy and went with her dad to America. Now, at the age of 16, she’s the most popular singer and actress in Hollywood, a.k.a Eris Sakura, and dating the hottest actor in town. But what happens if she’s forced to go back to Japan, to save the Alice Academy from chaos, caused by her mother, Yuka?

Chapter 1- painful memoirs


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Do you really think that he loves you? He never did... and never will. I’m the one he really loves, so back off.” Mitsuki glared and pushed me to the wall. My head hit the wall and I could feel blood trickling down my face. I tried to use my Alice on her, but to no avail. Natsume, where are you? Why can’t I use my powers??? It’s like as if… their… gone… “Go back where you came from… no one wants you here.” She hissed at me and looked at me, whispering, “Serixium Nobemiuillium… goodbye, Kaname, or should I say, Mikan?” the place turned dark, and I could feel life leaving me slowly… as I gasped for breath, I could hear Mitsuki’s laughter, her evil laughter… “No one loves you, MIKAN!” She screamed.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“MIKAN!!!! Bloody hell, wake up already!!!! Wake up, Mikan!” Geez. My cousin sure is difficult to wake up. Maxine thought. What should I do to wake her up? Damn! Aha! I have an idea. Maxine ran downstairs and grabbed the heaviest pan in their kitchen, and the largest spoon they have .Then, she ran back upstairs, and hit the pan with the spoon, like a gong playing near Mikan’s ear. She continued what she’s doing for like several minutes, but to no avail. Geez! Mikan is such a bother. Mikan’s alarm clock started ringing, but Mikan won’t wake up still. Is my cousin still alive? Maxine asked herself. Maxine went to Mikan’s bed to check if she’s still breathing. She’s still alive, but why the hell won’t she wake up? In frustration, Maxine grabbed Mikan’s shoulder and started shaking it violently. “Mikan, damn you! You still have a concert tonight. Wake up already.”


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I could feel someone shaking my shoulders violently. What the heck? I opened my eyes and saw my cousin Maxine violently shaking me. “What the hell Maxine? What’s wrong with you?” I shouted. Maxine looked surprise, gaping at me like an idiot, (A/n: Lol.) “Get off me!!!” I pushed her. “What’s wrong with you? Are you trying to kill me?” I asked her, while checking if there are any bruises on my shoulders.

Maxine looked incredulous and then smiled sarcastically at me and answered, “Not really… just trying to wake you up… which is by far, the easiest thing I’ve ever done in my whole life.” She sighed. “Geez, did you take any sleeping pills?” she asked me.

“No.” I answered flatly. I stood up and was about to go in the bathroom when she grabbed my hands, “then why the hell do you sleep like there’s no tomorrow?” She asked me sweetly, but I could sense that she’s so irritated; she can eat me at this moment. I just shrugged off and headed to the bathroom.

“Oh, Mikan! What will I do with you? You’re just so… unnerving at times.” She sighed, and stared blankly at the wall. Sighing for the third time, she grabbed my pillows and started fixing my bed. I opened the faucet and washed my face slowly. “When will you grow up?” she asked me… looking straight at me in the eye. I looked at her in the mirror, and answered, “I did.”

“Really? When?” She rolled her eyes and asked sarcastically. I grabbed my toothbrush and the toothpaste, and started brushing my teeth.

“Last month, I grew half an inch taller and as of the moment, I’m already 5’6 inches in height.” I answered her coolly, trying hard to contain my laughter.

“Oh Mikan!” She screamed, frustrated, and hit her head with my pillows.

“Be careful… you might loose your brain in that action of yours.” I warned her. She glared at me, and I snickered.

“Whatever!” She screamed. I got out of the bathroom, and grabbed my white bath towel and wiped my face. My cousin, Maxine, was still screaming, so I ignored her and sat at my bed, brushing my hair. Maxine paused for a moment, gasped for air, and continued screaming. Still ignoring her, I took my black t-shirt and my white shorts from my closet, and changed into them. I grabbed my white rubber shoes, and wore them. Taking a last glance at my mirror, I asked Maxine, “’you done yet?” she stopped and looked at me… or more like, glaring… “Yeah…” she answered, still glaring at me.

“Then, let’s go.” I pulled her out of the room, and then headed downstairs.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“So, what are you planning to sing in your concert tonight?” Maxine asked me, licking her ice cream. We’re at the park, it’s just 9 am and we’ve just had the 3rd batch if our ice cream sundae.

“The other side of me.” I answered, looking at the couples walking lovey dovey in the park. Rolling my eyes in disgust, I just concentrated at the “things” my cousin was blabbing about.

“Oh, good then. I just love that song… it’s simple, yet, there’s uniqueness in it. Oh, and it also has a very energetic tone that will make your fans dance and go crazy. Nice choice.” Maxine said, while wiping the ice cream stain on her skirt. “So, how are things between you and Toby, the big jerk?”

“Maxine!” I scolded her. “Look, he’s hot okay? And he’s kinda funny. Dating him is sure fun”.

“Fun? What’s fun when the guy you’re dating only talks about himself and how handsome he is! Really! How vain could that idiot get?” She paused, and looks straight to my eye. “You’re just dating him so your bitch of a manager won’t get angry at you.”

I stood up and smiled at her. “Let’s just go.” I pulled her hand and drag her with me. “Here you go again, avoiding the issues. Geez.” I started running towards the exit, still holding her hand.

“Stop!!!!” I heard her scream. Instead of putting into halt, I run faster than ever. “Please!!!” Maxine screamed for mercy. Then… I just... stop…. She bumped into me and fall. She glared at me, and said, “What the heck?” she asked furiously.

“Oh nothing…” I answered and smiled.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Hey, Eris, you ready?” Marj Graze Armonk, a.k.a. Mega, my manager asked me. As usual, she’s wearing her normal attire. Normal means wearing a very thick make up, that I think will last for like a decade, a red lipstick that makes her lips pout unattractively, and the last but not the least, her I’m a whore dress. Yeah, she’s my manager alright. I don’t even remember how she became my manager in the first place.

“It’s not Eris, okay? It’s Mikan. Geez, Mega. You’re so dumb.” Maxine butted in. my cousin just hates Mega.

“Well, it’s her code name. What are you doing here anyways? You’re not supposed to be here.” Mega snapped back. Maxine glared at her, and Mega glared back. A glaring contest has just begun. Hooh!

“Quit it you two!” I screamed at them. “I was just saying something to Maxine, that’s why she’s here. Anyways, I’m ready. I’ll just change... that’s all.” I said. This two makes me feel sick and dizzy… always fighting… making me loose my concentration.

“Okay, Eris. Get change then. I’ll wait for you at the backstage.” She went to the door, but turned back and said, “Oh, and you’ll wear the pink and white outfit. You look cute in that outfit. Your fans sure will drool over you. Oh, and one more thing, you’ll be Toby’s date at his victory party tomorrow. Okay? Ciao.” And with that, she just smiled and left.

“Bye, bitch!” Maxine shouted at her.

“Just don’t mind her.” I advised Maxine. I searched through my closet and found the pink and white outfit Mega was referring too. It’s a pink tube top with skulls and bones as a design, and a pleated white skirt that is above my knees, and a white knee length boots. When I was done, I looked at the mirror and sighed. I looked like a whore.

“You looked like a whore.” Maxine commented. “Wear this.” She said, giving me a white jacket. I looked at her and she replied, “It’ll make you looked decent. Come here, I’ll put you some make up.” She pulled me to a chair and applied some lip gloss to my lips. “There, you look so cute.” She giggled. “Oh, where’s my wig?” I asked her.

“Here it is.” Handing me my blonde wig that reaches to half of my back. “There, you look ready. Go out and break some leg!”

“Thanks Maxine. I love you!” I smiled at her.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I went to the back stage and the director handed me the lapel. “Okay, Eris, you’ll start singing when the light turns off and when smoke turns yellow and pink okay?” the stage director explained to me. “Got it?” he asked me, tension obvious to his face.

“Don’t worry Jake, everything’s clear. Just relax and enjoy my show” I smiled, patting his shoulder. “I’ll be fine.” I assured him.

“Well, okay then. Do your best. There are lots of fans out there and if you make a mistake, you’ll lose all of these.”

The whole coliseum turned dark, the lights were switched off, and cold air started coming from the under the seats of the audiences. Some girls screamed due to mixed shock and fright, like their watching some horror movie during November 1. Idiots. Then, the dome of the coliseum opened, revealing a clear night sky. Fireworks started to appear, and the fans screamed in anticipation. Then suddenly, the stage opened, and the fans screamed; they thought that I was coming from the center stage, but no, instead, they reveal my back up dancers. Disappointed, my fans sat down again, until, a fan girl screeched, pointing at the sky and everyone looked up. Now you can see me. I was at a helicopter ladder, waiting to land. Cameras started flashing and my fans started chanting, “Eris! Eris! Eris!”

We landed at the stage and music started to play in the background.

The other side
The other side
The other side of me

I started dancing, and my fans screamed.

By day, I play
The part in every way
Of simple sweet, calm and collected

Pretend, to my friends
I'm a chameleon
Can make a girl feel disconnected

My male back-ups lift me and threw me high in the air.

Feel like a star
A super hero
Sometimes it's hard to separate
(Got too much on my plate)

I performed a back flip in the air, and then I went to my fans.

If you could see
The other side of me
I'm just like anybody else, can't you tell
I hold the key (the key)
To both realities
The girl that I want you to know
If only I could show
The other side...the other side
I want you to see
The other side...the other side
The other side of me

Then, went to the aisle and danced there.

Inside, I try
To make the pieces fit right
A jigsaw puzzle everywhere
'Cause I flip the script
So many times I forget
Who's on stage, who's in the mirror

Back in the spotlight
The crowd is calling
The paparazzi and the fame
(It can drive a girl insane)

My fans screamed harder when I split.

If you could see
The other side of me
I'm just like anybody else, can't you tell
I hold the key
To both realities
The girl that I want you to know
If only I could show
The other side...the other side
I want you to see
The other side...the other side
The other side of me

I ran back to the center stage and danced again.

Down inside I'm not that different
Like everyone I have a dream
Don't wanna hide just wanna fit in
Sometimes it's harder than it seems

I went near to my fans and touched their hands. Some even tried to grab me.

If you could see
The other side of me
I'm just like anybody else, can't you tell
I hold the key
To both realities
The girl that I want you to know

If you could see
The other side of me
I'm just like anybody else, can't you tell
I hold the key (the key)
To both realities
The girl that I want you to know
If only I could show (yeah)

The other side...the other side
I want you to see (yeah!)
The other side...the other side
The other side of me

The other side...the other side
I want you to see
The other side..the other side of me

I posed and the song ended. The audience continued screaming, some were chanting my name, “Eris! Eris!”

The concert was a total success. Everyone enjoyed it. We earned a lot, and my popularity was at its height. I was about to ride in my limousine when I glanced at raven haired girl, having violet eyes. Hotaru? No, impossible. Hotaru never ever like music, especially concerts. No. That’s not Hotaru. No. It can’t be. Besides, I’m in a disguise, she won’t recognize me. And also it’s been five years... yeah… it’s been five years. It’s impossible to recognize me. But wait, why am I in here in the first place? I don’t really remember that much except when…

Flashback:

Mikan happily entered their class room. It’s the day after her birthday; and yesterday has been the best day of her life. Natsume admitted his feelings for her and gave her a locket with their pictures in it.

“Good morning!” she greeted the whole class.

“Good morning Mikan.” Some of her classmates greeted back.

“Hey, polka! Come here.” Natsume ordered.

“Why would I?” she asked him testily.

“Cause if you don’t, I’ll kiss you.” He answered. The whole class looked at them; everyone fell silent, watching them intently.

“You can’t do that.” She answered, raising her elegant eyebrows.

‘Oh yes, I can.” Natsume answered, walking to Mikan. Mikan took a step back, but Natsume grabbed her collar and kissed her. The whole class cheered, Hotaru is busy videotaping the scene, and Luna left the class room, irritated.

MISS SAKURA, PLEASE HEAD TO THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE.

She pushed Natsume, blushing, and ran out of the room. My heart, it’s thumping fast. Oh, I do love Natsume. She smiled and happily went to the principal’s office

“Yes sir?” I asked, peeping from the door.

“Mikan chan, come in. I have something to tell you.” The principal answered, motioning me to sit down. Mikan went inside and she saw a man who has black hair and blue eyes. He looked familiar. He looked happy, especially when he saw Mikan. “Mikan, this is Kaito, your real father.”

“My father?” I looked at kaito and he smiled at me. Tears started falling down my cheeks and I ran towards him. Now, I know why he looks familiar, he’s the picture my grand pa showed me few years ago. “Oh, I miss you so much, dad!”

“I miss you too. I’m sorry for not being with you.. It’s just that I have business to attend to.” He said, patting my hair, “But don’t worry. Im here take you with me to America, so we can spend more time together. Isn’t that fun?” he smiled at me.

“America? But what about Hotaru? My friends? Natsume? I can’t possibly leave them alone”

“But, I’m your father. Don’t you want to be with me?”

“I wanted to… but I can’t leave them.”

“Okay then. I’ll just be here in case you change your mind.”

“I won’t change my mind.” Then, I kissed his cheek and left the room. I went to the sakura tree… and I saw… NATSUME KISSING LUNA! Luna had her eyes close and she looks like she’s enjoying the kiss. Natsume? How can you do this to me? I love you. I trusted you. It hurts… so much… I ran away from that place and went to my room, crying. I went to Hotaru’s room and saw her talking with Ruka. I heard her say, “I never cared for that idiot, Mikan.” Hotaru, you too? I can’t believe this. I ran away and went to the principal’s office. I talked with my father and agreed to come with him to America. I never told him the reason why I agreed, but I guess, he has a feeling.

End of flash back


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Mikan? Hey!” Maxine nudged me.

“Yeah?” I asked her. We’re at my condo already and I didn’t notice that. Oh, I’ve been reminiscing again. Painful memories…. Why can’t I forget them?

‘You okay?” Maxine asked, looking worried. “Are you hurt? Why are you crying?”

“Nothing. Just tired. That’s all. Don’t worry.” I forced a fake smile.
