TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-1The final bell rang, and Doki and Nabi rushed down the halls towards the gymnasium. But this time, they werent running from someone. They werent trying to find someone. The both of them only had one thing on their minds as they bust through the gym doors:TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-16 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It had been one week since their last experience at school, and for the most part, many things around the school quieted down. They leaned that Brandon wasnt bullying anymore, and that his father got a new job at the local hardware store.
But most importantly: Tryouts were today
For Nabi, it was basketball. He had first learned about the sport when he was about 7 year old. But recently, he had to give it up because of all the riots in the city. But now the riots were over, which meant that he had his opportunity to try ir again.
For Doki, it was Cheerleading. She had obviously shown Nabi that she loved cheerleading before, but now that they were in a school, she would finally get their
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 1-3A bell rang as the door to the school supplies store opened. As Doki and Nabi walked in and started looking for the supplies on their lists, they both had the same thought: Wow. Never thought Id be back here for a long time The list was quite long, so they knew this would take a while.TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 1-36 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
After they were about half way done through their lists, they heard a voice call out to them.
They looked back to see an unfamiliar rabbit walking towards them. He has slightly taller than Nabi, but he was quite muscular compared to Nabi. He looked like he had a few faint scars on his face, but you had to look real close to see them.
Which one of you is Nabi?!
They looked at each other with a questionable look. Wasnt it kinda of obvious who was Nabi?
Uh that would be me said Nabi
OH, well in that case
He grabbed Nabi by his green scarf and the collar of his shirt. Then he twirled him and raised him about
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-2How could you NOT make the tryouts!?TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-26 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Nabi was just as surprised as Doki was. But at this point, as she was sitting with Nabi at his house, all of the surprise in her turned to sadness, and right when they made it to Nabis house, she sat down and let it all out. His scarf was stained with a few tear marks.
I dont know! I mean I-I thought I did pretty well, and most of them looked amazed, b-but then I went in and She looked like she about to start crying again. But before she could Nabi held her real close. Then he said:
What do you mean most?
She blew her nose and said: Well, Jessica, who is the captain of the squad, didnt look very concerned at all. In fact, she didnt even look like she cared at all. I thought it wouldnt matter, but
But before she could even make her face again, he hugged her again while thinking:
Something here isnt right
Right when he was about
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-5Ok, so we all know what to do? said NabiTSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-56 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Doki and Lip Cat nodded. Even though Lip Cat was only there to be a witness, she felt as though she wanted to be included. Doki looked as serious as ever. Right now, Coach B was talking with Jessica on why she didnt let Doki in the squad.
Lets tune in:
Well because I didnt think she was that good. I mean, she was okay, but she just wasnt good enough. She said this with a little smirk on her face
Really because from what I heard The three of them walked out of his office. she was pretty good
Jessica saw them and started to panic. She never thought of having Nabi go up against her. Well I she
Coach B smirked and said Yeah, thats what I thought He looked at the three of them and said Ill leave the rest to you. Meanwhile, I think Ill stand on the sidelines and watch

That was the first thing that Doki and Nabi had said all morning. He tried to keep a smile to try to convince Doki that he wasnt scared, but inside, he was more frightened that ever before. He could also tell Doki was worried about him, which made him angry.
Yep time for out first day Doki said. She sounded like her throat was as dry as a desert. Yep, shes definitely worried Nabi thought. They held hands as they made their way in to the school.
When they walked through the front door, they were somewhat amazed. The school lobby looked like it was just redone about 2 seconds ago. The hallways smelled like fresh wax and were recently painted. And the school was filled with a bunch of students making their way through the hallways.
But Doki and Nabi werent focusing on the lobby or the hallways. They were focusing on the students. More importantly, they were looking for Brandon. A fe
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 1-4Nabi woke up with his alarm blazing away like always. But this time, it was blazing a few hours earlier, and for a few seconds, he couldnt figure out why. Was it broken? Then all at once the thought rammed through himTSI: The Next Step: Ep. 1-46 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He had his first day of school today
For a few seconds he felt excited about going back, but then remembered what happened a few days ago, and thought about how it would affect him when he got there. What would happen? A million thoughts about this swirled in his head as he did his morning routine.
As he brushed his teeth, one part of his body kept telling him Its too dangerous! Youll never be able to get through! The only way is to fight, but what happened to Fighting never solves anything? Another part was saying Come on! This is no big deal! Just fight and youll be fine! He couldnt make up his mind.
While he was doing all this, Doki also was having a million thoughts going though her. She was
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-4No! Dont do that! That wouldnt be fair! said Doki.TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 3-46 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
But before he could finish, Doki stood up real quick and stood in front of him really close. Then she said:
Look, I really appreciate what youre doing. But I dont want you to suffer because Jessica is jealous. I want to find a way to make us both happy, not disappointed. And maybe, just maybe, we can find a way to get me in
But how ? said Nabi.
They looked at each other and they both sighed as they sat down. After a few minutes, lip Cat finally said:
Well there might be a way. They both looked at her.
Really how?! said Doki
Well, you could try to prove that Jessica wasnt letting Doki on the team just because she didnt like her. I dont know how wed do it though
With that, they relaxed with disappointment. But then after a few minutes, Nabi said
Wait I think I
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 2-2That couldnt be Brandon already, could it?!? Nabi thought. He just stood there, in a position that most people have when someones about to hit you really hard. I-It couldnt be him already! But before he could think about anything else, suddenly two more Heys came from behind him. He slowly turned around and he and Doki breathed a sigh of relief.TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 2-26 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Hey, you two! Never thought Id you guys so early! Yi-Ho said.
Yeah, and I also see you two are still love birds Sam-Ho said.
With that said, Il-Ho punched Sam-Ho in the shoulder. Then he said, Yeah, its um g-great to see you again guys
Hehe thanks said Nabi. Good to see you too With that, he could see a smirk on Il-Hos face.
So what have you guys been up to lately? Sam-Ho said.
Oh, you know just the bas- But before Nabi could finish the sentence,

Nabi rushed down the street as fast as he could. As he was running, he was filled with both doubt and regret. He heard the news from Grey Rabbit this morning, but couldnt believe it until many people around the city started talking about it. He ran down the street and stopped, where many other people around his age were looking with the same disbelief. He pushed his way through to realize that Grey Rabbit was right.
He and many others had to go back to school
Now due to the recent riots in the city, many of the schools had shut down, for some of the teachers were skipping to riot in the city. Some were just to caught up in the riots to show up to teach. And most of all, some believed it could be a hazard for the students to be walking to the school in between the rioting.
And all this started not 3 weeks ago
But now the rioting had clamed down, and many of the teachers went back to teaching. And as of now the students would go back to learning.
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 7-5The candles on the torches were lit, and everyone was gathering around to hear The Band play their sets as everyone danced to the music. They were all there to hear the principal give a few words, like how great the year was and how he looked forward to next year. But Nabi wasnt focusing on that. He was more focused on here and now.TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 7-56 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
With the heart still in his pocket, he and Doki started to listen to the first set. But while they were there, they were being shoved of some of Brandon and Jessicas friends, and they knew that it was on purpose. They looked at each other, and then they eventually left and made their way towards the hotel.
Nabi couldnt believe it! The one time he really wanted to stay and not run away, they were forced to! But as they walked out of the beach, he noticed a small ledge near the beach, which was almost right over the place where the school and the band were. Since no one was there, they decided to have their own little private dance. At first

All the basketball players cheered and started making their way out to the gymnasium. While he was making his way through, a million thoughts went through Nabis head. Fear, excitement, and nervousness flowed through his body. This was his moment. This was his chance to show everyone what he was made of
The double doors opened, and the lights and the cheering filled Nabi. As he ran he saw Grey Rabbit, Hana, Pizza, Il-Ho, and Sam-Ho sitting in the bleachers, along with a thousand other fans. He also spotted Doki with her squad, cheering with the crowd to keep the spirit alive.
But the more he thought about these things, the more nervous he became. But he was also excited about it, which more or less overcame the fear. He huddled up with his team as they discussed their first few plays
As they were discussing, the announcer was running off the names of all the players of the tea

Brandon made his way out of the noisy gymnasium and went down the hallway. He still couldnt believe that the basketball team won the championship. Even more, he couldnt believe that Nabi was the main reason they won!
But he wasnt thinking specifically about that. He realized that Nabi really was a true athlete. He was really good, and he worked hard for it. And that was the main problem; because since he was really good, he stood in his way of receive the biggest award of the year
Athlete of the Year
Not only was this a very high honor, but for one thing, this was for every sport! And also, he had won that award 4 times in a row, and he was hoping to go for a fifth. But now

Dokis face was filled with doubt, surprise, and sadness. She knew that Nabi felt depressed today, but she never thought that this would be the reason. Like Nabi, she normally wouldnt be so sad about going back to school, but she too was afraid of her and Nabis safety with everyone who were with the anti-intermarriage group.
Im sorry guys, but the fact is, its a law said Grey Rabbit. He had been there with Doki for lunch right about when Nabi went out to see the news post on the bulletin board.
Well, law or not, Im still having thought about not going. said Doki
As much as you dont like it, Doki, if you dont, they will force you if they have to said Grey.

He could only think about who could do this, and why.TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 6-5.56 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Doki looked up at him like a small child. Her eyes were starting to turn red from all the crying. Wha-?
I dont know who did this, or if theyll do it again, but somehow, Im gonna fix this. said Nabi. He had a major look of seriousness on his face. Doki smiled a little bit, but then she lost ti as she said,
But what about my house? Whos gonna clean it and fix the windows? And more importantly, where am I gonna stay?

Doki and Nabi walked into the restaurant and found a seat. The place was pretty small, but it was also really nice and quiet, which was perfect for them to talk and what not. After ordering a drink, Doki said, Well, this is a pretty cool. Its nice and quiet she quickly looked at her menu and said, Ooh, and they have a nice selection of food for the both of us!
Nabi smiled and looked at the menu. As he looked for something to eat, he realized that she was right. There was food and drinks on the menu for both cats and rabbits, which was pretty surprising for Doki, but not so much for Nabi. In fact, that was one of the reasons he picked the restaurant.
Well Im glad you like it. Its also pretty quiet
As he said this, the waiter came over and asked them what they wanted to eat. As they ordered, Doki checked her pocket to make sure that her present was still there. She quickly took it out and lo

But Il-Ho didnt answer. He didnt have to. He slowly picked up his head and started walking toward Nabi. He had a mix of seriousness and sadness in his face. As he was about right in front of his face, he held out is fist and uncurled it.
Nabi was shocked
Inside Il-Hos fist was a small green ribbon, like the kind that was tied to the tree that they were standing under. Nabi looked up and then looked back at Il-Ho. At first he didnt know what he was doing with it, and then he realized right before Il-Ho said,
Can I see it ?
Nabi had to think about this one. Judging on his past, he couldnt decide on whether or not to let Il-Ho see the heart. He was afraid that he would get rid of it. But just as Il-Ho was going to leave, he quickly reached in his pocket, gave him the heart, and then looked away. If he was going to get rid of the heart, he couldnt bear to watch.

Alright, alright, Doki! You win! I give up!
Doki giggled as she stopped burying Nabis face in the snow and helped him up to his feet. Well, I never said I was done she said. With that said she pulled out a snowball from her back and threw it at Nabi. Nabi was able to block it from his arm, but some of the snow still landed on his face, and instantly started melting. Nabi laughed as he made a snowball in his hands and threw it at Doki.
Hey, thats not fair ! Doki said playfully. They both ran down the street until they both fell in front of Dokis house. They both laughed and eventually Nabi said, Well, Im wiped out. I think Ive had enough running for one snow day. Doki smiled and they both stood up. A few minutes later, they heard a voice behind them.
Aw, you guys are even cuter together when youre playing in the snow

Nabi, I dont know. Do you really think we should go?
Doki sounded a little bit worried as she sat with Nabi at lunch the next day. Nabi had just told her about going to the dance, and she couldnt decide. She had to admit, it was pretty good ideas for the date, but she didnt want to show off more than she and Nabi already had. Plus, she knew she couldnt dance very well. Even though she was a cheerleader, she figured they were 2 different things.
Of course we should go. I think it would be fun. Plus, weve never been to one of these before
Doki looked away and thought. It WOULD be a great way for them to spend some time together, and it would be fun to hear all the great music. She even heard the band was going to make a special appearance. But what would they do if they couldnt dance? Finally she said, Ill think about it
Nabi sighed a little bit. Alright, that

What does Nabi have to do with this?! He didnt do anything!!
Nabi looked surprised. He never heard Doki scream so loudly before. Then Lip Cat scooted back and said: Whoa, whoa! With all due respect Doki, let me finish
Doki realized she screamed and cooled off: Okay. Im sorry. Go on
She sighed and said: Anyway, it really isnt because of you personally, Nabi. Its because shes jealous of you, Doki. Shes jealous that youre WITH Nabi. She said: Shes a great cheerleader, yeah, but if shes gonna get in my way with Nabi, then shes GOTTA go
Doki and Nabi looked at each other. Nabi felt guilt flowing throughout his body.

Doki smiled and blushed as she took Nabis hand, and was led with him to the dance floor where everyone else was. She looked around and saw people smiling at the both of them. She got a little closer to Nabi as they got to the center of the floor. Nabi looked over and saw the Jjintta, Lilith, and Janice smiling along with everyone else. As the upbeat music continued on, Doki noticed something familiar about the song
Just like that night at the beach, huh Nabi said.
Doki eyes perked, and then, it all came her. The song the band was playing was the same song that they played at the beach party freshman year! Not only that, but she also remembered how well Nabi danced with her at the party. She sighed and felt so stupid for forgetting that night, and forgetting how special that night was to her. Silently, but enough so Nabi could hear her, she said, Im sorry, Nabi for forgetting

Jessica made her way out of the gym and smiled. She thought that her plan had succeeded, and that now, they would compete, and she would once again look like one of the best players in the entire school
As she made her way through the lobby, she stopped and realized a fatal mistake in her plan: Now that Doki couldnt play, they didnt have enough people on the team to compete in the competition! So now, no one would see any of them
She had to decide: Doki, or the competition ?
==One week later==
Doki and Nabi made their way to the gym to watch the competition. They really didnt want to see Jessica any time soon, but they figured that they should at least try to be nice and support them. At this point, Dokis leg was healed, but her back was still aching a little. And as hey were about to sit down, they saw Lip Cat coming towards them.

Who in their right mind !?!
He pushed his way through and looked at Nabi, who looked more serious than scared. When Brandon saw Nabi, he looked just as surprised as the Jjintta and Doki. Then after a few seconds Il-Ho said:
Dude, what are you- Then Brandon interrupted:
Well, well, well. Look what we have here. Im glad you showed up actually. I needed someone else to pound on Nabi still didnt move.

Man, I cant believe that Im going skating again thought Nabi. He was still excited about being able to skate again. And he was even happier that Doki was coming to watch him
So why are you coming, Doki? With all due respect, you dont really skate Yi-Ho said.
But before she could answer, they made their way through the skate park. There were a lot of people there. Some were on the half-pipe, some were on the rails, and some were just skating freely
Nabi smiled as they made their way to the half-pipe. It took them a little while to get up the stairs, for it was a big half-pipe. Doki stayed behind at the bottom to watch. More or less because she didnt want to climb all the way to the top
TSI: The Next Step: Ep. 4-3A whistle blew as the referee called a foul on the other team. This was about the third foul that was called for them. Why? Because these players were bigger than most of the players on Nabis team. Some were even bigger than NabiTSI: The Next Step: Ep. 4-36 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Some of the players on his team were injured pretty badly. Some of them had a few bruises, and some even had scratches. They already had to call out about 5 players from the team, and it was only the third quarter of the game
All these thoughts just made Nabi more nervous. Although he had done a great job during the first half, he wondered if he could keep it up. He was getting tired and he didnt know how much longer he would last
But there as one thing that kept him in the game. Throughout the game, there had been many cheers for him in the bleachers. He knew that they would cheer for him, but he didnt realize how relaxing it could be when youre really stressed out.
The whistle blew again as the third quarter started.
