Not What He Seems

But when something shocking and sad about Chad is revealed, they find themselves wanting to help him instead of hurt him. What will the VKs and their friends decide to do? Contains violence, depression, and talk of suicide throughout. (Entry for the "Battle of the Fandoms" competition in the OUAT/Disney category)

2. Mirror, Mirror

Doug wasn't so sure about this. He didn't like getting beaten up by Chad, and he didn't like it when Chad messed with Evie, but something about what the and the others were doing didn't settle right with him. Even as pain shot through his body as he made his way to Mal and Evie's room, he still didn't think this was right. Ben had a point in what he said last night, that they shouldn't fight fire with fire, but the VKs were fixed on the idea of revenge.

"it's about time you showed up man," Jay grumbled when he reached the room. His face flushed slightly when he saw he was the last to arrive, and he quickly sat beside Evie. "Leave him alone, guys!" Evie said with a small pout, looping her arm through his before pulling out her mirror from under her pillow. Doug's stomach churned as the VKs let out a snicker. He exchanged an uneasy glance with Ben, who seemed just as reluctant as he was about the whole thing.

Evie cleared her throat and said, "Mirror, Mirror, in my hand, who does Chad love most in the land?" The mirror shimmered slightly and Evie gasped in shock when the person on the mirror came into focus. "I-it's...It's a..." Evie stammered, unable to finish her sentence. Mal tried to snatch the mirror away, but Evie shrieked and clutched the mirror to her chest. Doug eyes narrowed and he gently slipped the mirror out of Evie's hand. She gasped in shock and tried to take it back. As he moved to keep it away, his eyes fell on the mirror and he gaped at it in shock.

A teenage boy, about a year or so younger than Chad, was depicted in the mirror. He had short black hair that was slightly messy and had a bit of a curl to it. His skin was unnaturally pale, but it seemed to suit him due to his tall, lanky frame. The dark, navy blue suit he had on made his green eyes pop. He wore a pair of thick, black, square glasses that matched his dorky grin. Speaking of his grin, the guy had perfect teeth. Who the heck had teeth that perfect?! Anyways, he wasn't drop dead handsome, but he definitely wasn't bad looking either.

"Wait... Chad's gay?" jay said with a snort, peering over Doug's shoulder. Doug sighed in exasperation and shoved his face away, making Jay grunt in surprise. "I guess so. But who cares? There's nothing wrong with that," Ben butted in, although he looked a bit shocked himself. "Chad cares, obviously. Why else would he keep it a secret? Gay marriage is legal in Auradon, but his parents are Prince Charming and Cinderella, the literal embodiment of a perfectly straight, happily married couple. He's probably ashamed of who he is!" Evie said, placing a hand over her heart.

"I think we found our blackmail guys," Jay said with a smirk.

Evie was slightly nervous as she walked up to Chad in the empty courtyard, the others giving her a thumbs up before all of them hid behind something She swallowed, fidgeting as her eyes fell on Chad. Yes he was alone, but so was she. He might hurt her before she even got a chance to make a proposition! And did she even want to do this? It didn't seem right to her. Even the fairly large part of her that was still evil wasn't on board with this. She shook those thoughts aside and took a shaky breath, clutching her mirror tightly in one hand and approaching Chad with a devious smile. He folded his arms across his chest when he saw her coming, an eyebrow raised.

"What do you want, Evil?" Chad sneered. Evie ignored the 'nickname' and smirked, pulling out the mirror from behind her back. Chad's cocky smile faltered slightly, his eyes resting on the teen's image in the mirror. His eyes seemed to soften slightly but his jaw clenched, and Evie could've sworn he started tearing up. "Who is this? Is he your boyfriend?" Evie asked, waving the mirror in front of Chad's face tauntingly. Chad swallowed and gently pushed her hand down. When she sighed and tried to show to him again, he shook his head.

"Put it away, Evil," Chad said quietly, the gentleness of his tone startling Evie, but she couldn't let that stop her. Evie practically shoved the mirror in his face, laughing softly. "Not until you tell me who this is," she sneered, copying Chad usual tone. Chad closed his eyes and took a shaky breath. When he opened them again, they were glistening.

"Evil, put the mirror-"

"You're stalling Chad. Just tell me who-"

"Evie, please!" Evie's smirk faded as Chad's voice cracked and he used her actual name, and she actually looked at him. Tears were indeed gathering in his eyes and it looked like he was trying as hard as he could not to let them loose. Evie put the mirror away and resisted the urge to pull Chad into a hug and apologize for what she said. She hesitantly put a hand on Chad's shoulder put he brushed it off, looking anywhere but at her.

"Chad, who's the guy in the mirror? Be honest with me," Evie asked, making her voice as gentle as possible. "No one. He's no one," Chad said quickly, and a tear trailed down his cheek. Evie blinked in shock and put her hand on Chad's shoulder again, and this time he didn't brush her off. A few more tears escaped the confines of his watery eyes and he let out a soft sob. Evie was at a loss for words, completely in shock. Chad, the biggest jerk in school and her sworn enemy, was crying. She had no idea what to do. Was she supposed to comfort him? Or was she supposed to stick to the plan and force the answer out of him.

"I-I'll tell you, just not here, someone might see us. And you have to swear that you won't tell anyone else," Chad said weakly. Not knowing what else to do, Evie nodded slowly and followed Chad when he turned and began to walk away, glancing around to make sure no one else was following them. "You guys come too," Chad called behind them. Ben and the other VKs came out from their hiding places, all of them looking shocked and even upset. Mal and Ben exchanged an uneasy glance before following their friends, wondering just what they had gotten themselves into.
