Turning The Page

Legend has it that long ago, the most infamous villains were imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost, cut off from the rest of the world as a punishment for their misdeeds. In this dark and dreary place, the likes of Maleficent, Medusa, Jafar, Cruella de Vil and the Evil Queen reside and evil reigns supreme. Mal, Adeline, Evie, Jay, and Carlos are their descendants, the teenaged sons and daughters of the Isle’s most villainous characters, and they are coming of age on the Isle of the Lost. What would their choices lead up to? Would love be a spell to attract Adeline of her purpose on Auradon? Would the Descendants choose such a life?

8. They're Trouble and Plan B

 "Those kids are trouble." Chad said, pionting at Adeline and Mal.
        "Come on, Chad." Ben said, tearing his gaze from Adeline. "Give them a chance." Audrey giggled.
"No offense, Bennybear, but you're just too trusting. Look, I know your mom fell in love with a big, nasty beast who turned out to be a prince, but with my mom, the evil fairy was just the evil fairy. The purple-haired girl's mother!" Audrey glared at Mal then at Adeline.

        "I think you're wrong about them." Ben defended. Audrey sighed.
        "I'll see you later." Ben said. He walked toward the two descendants.
        He leaned against a locker close to them and caught Adeline's attention rather quickly. "Hey." He said.
        "Hello." Mal and Adeline greeted just as they closed their lockers. Ben looked at the graffiti Mal had sprayed on her locker.
        "You should really think about taking this talent off the locker and into art class. I could, uh, sign you up. What do you think?" He offered.

        Jane walked past making eye contact with Mal before making a squeaking sound of fright before running to the bathroom.
        "Way to take the fun out of it," Adeline muttered.
        Mal walked after Jane without a single word the both Adeline and Ben. Adeline followed her gaze after her. She faced Ben, blushing when she realized how close their faces were. "I should, um, stay with Mal." Adeline said quickly without letting him speak.
        "Huh," he said shortly.

        Adeline walked into the girl's bathroom after Mal and found Jane standing at the mirror while checking her hair. Jane's eyes widened and she paled when she saw them.
        "Hi!" Mal said as Jane turned around. "It's Jane, right? Ah, always loved that name. Jane."
        "That's cool." Jane mumbled, starting to walk away.
        "Don't go!" Mal and Adeline shouted, blocking Jane's path. Jane stopped, her eyes wide with fear.
        "...Sorry, Jane." Adeline said. "We were just hoping to make a new friend. You probably have all the friends you need, though, huh?" Jane shook her head.
        "Hardly." Jane muttered.
        "Really?" Mal asked. "I mean, with your mom being Fairy Godmother and Headmistress?"
        "And not to mention your own, um, personality." Adeline encouraged. Mal laughed, Adeline joining her after.
        "I'd rather be pretty!" Jane confessed. "You two got great hair!" Mal twirled a lock of violet between her fingers. While Adeline flicked her red hair.
        "Hey, you know what?" Mal said. "I have just the thing for that!" Mal held up her spell book. "It's right..." Mal flipped through the pages, "ah, here." She smiled at Jane as she pointed at a spell.
        Adeline waited patiently. "Beware, forswear, replace the old with brand new hair." Mal flicked her fingers up, down, side to side.
        She tried to dunk, but to no avail. Suddenly, her hair which had been short and straight before, was long and curly. She stared into the mirror, shocked. She grabbed a handful of her hair and touched it. Mal and Adeline stood on either side. "Wow." Adeline said. "You almost don't notice your...other features anymore!"
        Jane pointed at the spell book. "That did that? Do my nose next!"
        Mal stepped back, "Oh, I can't. I've been practicing but you know, I can't do really big magic. Not like your mom, with her wand! I mean, one swoosh from that thing and you could probably have whatever features you wanted."
        "She doesn't use the wand anymore." Jane said. "She believes that real magic is in the books. and not the spell books. Regular books with history and stuff."
        "What a rip." Mal and Adeline said.
        "Yeah." Jane muttered.
        "You know, she used magic on Cinderella," Mal said, "Who wasn't even her real daughter. Doesn't she love you?" 
        "Well, of course she does." Jane said, "It-it's just, you know, tough love. 'Work on the inside, not the outside' That sort of thing." Jane looked down sad.
        "That face!" Adeline pointed. "There, yeah, and then just look as if you're - your heart is about to break." She  made an imitation: "Oh, Mother, I just don't understand why you can't make me beautiful, too..." She faked.
        Jane stared in awe. "Do you think it would work?"
        "Yeah." Mal said, nodding vigorously. "I mean, that's what old Cindy did, right? And then your Mom bibbidi-bobbidi-boo'd the living daylights out of her."
        "And hey! If your mom does decide to, you know, break out the old wand, invite us." Adeline added.
        "If I can convince Mom, you're so there!" Jane said. Unknowingly knowing what she agreed to.
        "Yay!" Adeline and Mal cheered softly, clapping silently.
        "Bye!" Jane said as she left out the door.
        "Bye." Mal said. She grinned evilly at Adeline just as Adeline did the same.

        Adeline was doing her homework on her bed. Trying to block distractions but failing poorly.
        Jane was pacing back and forth around the room, "Mom said, 'If a boy can't see the beauty within, than he's not worth it.' Can you believe it? What world does she live in?"
        "Auradon." Adeline and Mal said without looking up from their papers.
         Evie sat at the corner of the room, sewing a beautiful dress. "Mal, Ade (Addy), do you like it?" She held it up.
        "Yeah, it's cute. It really brings out your eyes." Mal said.
        "Yup, what she said." Adeline muttered.

        "Thank you," Evie said, looking at it proudly.
        "I'll never get a boyfriend." Jane lamented, sitting on Evie's bed.
        "Boyfriends are overrated." Adeline said, picking her head up interested in where the conversation could go.
        "And how would you know, Ade (Addy)?" Evie questioned. "You've never had one."
        "They're a waste of time." Adeline said.
        Evie gasped. "I forgot to do Chad's homework!" She rushed to her bed, picking up a backpack. "Oh, no! Oh, no, no, no!" She whispered as she ran back to her workplace.

        "And that is exactly what I mean." Adeline said. Pointing her pencil towards Evie. 
        There was a knock on the door and an unknown girl entered the room considering that the door was already opened. "Hi, guys! I'm Lonnie." She looked around to find everyone with blank stares. "My mom's Mulan?" She introduced. But no one seemed to remember.
        "No?" Lonnie said. "Anyways, I love what you've done with Jane's hair. And I know you hate us, and, well, you're evil, but do you think you could do mine?"
        "Why would I do that for you?" Mal said, looking up from her homework.
        "I'll pay you 50 dollars." Lonnie offered. Holding up a pouch full of it.
        "Good answer!" Evie exclaimed, taking the pouch from Lonnie's hand. "I need to buy more material. Let's see, I'm thinking, we lose the bangs, maybe some layers, and some highlights!"
        "Yeah, yeah." Lonnie said. "I want it cool." She looked over at Adeline and Mal. "Like Mal's and Adeline's."
        "Really?" Adeline said, "Split ends too?" She stood up from the position she was on her bed Mal looked up shaking her head a bit.
        Evie shooked the bag of coins. With an irritated groan, Mal got off the bed and took her spellbook, opening it to the wondrous and miracle page

        "Okay..." Mal started, "Beware, forswear, replace the old with cool hair." She recited. Lonnie watched the magic sparks fly with astonishment. Then magic did what it was made for. She made her way to the full sized mirror.
        She gasped. Evie walked over with a disapproving look. "I know, I know. It looks like a mop on your head. You know, let's cut it off, layer it-"
        "No no no no no!" Lonnie interrupted. "I love it!"
        "You do?" Evie questioned. 
        "It's just...." Lonnie muttered softly. She reached down and ripped the hem of her skirt. Mal watched with interest, Jane looked scared, and Adeline chuckled. "Now I'm cool." Lonnie said.
        "Like ice." Adeline said.
        Jane walked over to the mirror and ripped a split on the side of her skirt. "What did I just do!" She gasped, "Mom's gonna kill me!" She covered her mouth.
        Lonnie laughed.
        The two girls left. "Time for plan B," Mal admitted, opening her spell book.
        "What's plan b?" Adeline asked. "You know, for getting the wand?"
        Mal shook her head. "That's the problem. I have no idea."
