Who am I to judge him, I acted a lot worse.

Varthur


"Aah-chuu!" Varthur sneezed, staring at the pavement as he walked on through the school gates. A few cherry blossoms had fallen on the shoulders of his navy blue school blazer triggering his allergy to his dismay. He was re-adjusting his woolen scarf around his neck as he entered the school hall and to his surprise was greeted by an empty room. For a moment he wondered if he was in the right place. He had expected at least a few teachers to be around to supervise the seniors putting up the chairs and preparing for the arrival of the juniors on the first day of school yet it appeared his assumption was wrong. Perhaps they were running late. "I was pretty sure it's the hall.. and this day when they were.." he paused his out loud thoughts to welcome another sneeze. "Aahh-chu", the sneeze slightly echoed through the hall although much quieter than the first as he was no longer outside where the cherry blossom trees were.

He leaned against the wall by the doorway waiting for the other students to show up, not really particularly enthusiastic about the day or helping out in the school's activities yet the wait seemed to take forever and all he was doing was sneezing the duration of time away. "Aaah--chu!" Another echo as still nobody showed up. "Am I that early.. gosh." he muttered to himself, scratching the back of his head before turning to the doorway as if expecting someone to pop up and yell, "Sorry i'm late!" or "Don't go pulling a muscle Varthur with your allergy working up, here let me carry that!" But it was only wishful thinking. He wasn't even sure if the other seniors cared or noticed him. "Ugh what the hell.." he murmurred to himself before picking up one of the chairs from the stacks at the very back of the hall and starting a front row silently waiting and wishing for others to show up so he wouldn't look so stupid handling this on his own.

Coming back to school felt awkward. Not just because he was on his own for now but also because the blue and white uniform looked..awkward somehow. Maybe because that morning when he stood in front of the mirror, he knew next year he'd be in college. It was a realisation that kinda scared him as he wasn't sure what to do or pursue in his future but he figured he'd take the challenges one day at a time; for now that was setting up these chairs.

Varthur


"You don't look like a janitor?" Varthur heard a fellow male voice call out to him. He didn't seem to recognise it though which made sense seeing as whoever it was had been comparing him to a janitor. Do I really look that stupid helping set up by myself? He couldn't help but wonder with a slight hint of irritation as he set one more chair down that squeaked against the hall's floorboard, "Who are you?" Varthur turned around about to respond to the (Akihisa) boy's question. He figured the kid was a junior since he was in uniform, at the hall, and not familiar in identity but ceased his mouth from opening as his eyes came across another person in the room. Holy craa--p! Varthur's head turned away almost at the speed of lightning at the unmistakenable face of Momo Yakamoto. It had been exactly 3 years since the two had last seen each other and it didn't go too well...
"Hey you over there, you should lend a hand." Varthur gulped thinking Momo had drawn her attention his way and was more than ready to twist around and yell back defensively: "speak for yourself! I'm working over here!" but.. it turned out he was wrong. Momo had been talking to the othe junior as he facepalmed himself for being so ridiculous. Of course she wasn't talking to you, why did you think she was talking to you?! Do you want her to talk to you?! Of course not! he reconfirmed in the confines of his mind before continuing to set up the chairs rushingly to not allow the situation to get more tense or awkward. It wasn't long before another senior showed up which brought a great deal of relief to Varthur. Although the fellow senior Kei, wasn't someone he knew particularly the company was greatly appreciated. He had his hand ready to wave his fellow classmate over and to say "Heyyy Keiiii" in a friendly cheerful tone but instead felt an invisible force of fail come into contact as the senior started talking to Momo and that other Junior. Kei, you have launched yourself over to the dark side. He contemplated with his head hitting repeatedly against the wall of the school hall as he was trying to at least have someone he could build up forts and defences with from the woman's rage. Yet his effort at socialising was going to go to waste with Momo managing to get the attention of others like that; much better than he could anyway.

"Um...Not to interrupt but do you guys need any help?" a female voice snapped Varthur out of his thoughts. Looks like a junior. (Kairen) The young girl looked pretty cute with her black hair in two pony tails like that but checking her out was easily dismissed as he went right to addressing her question. He was a senior, so he figured he might as well act like one. Maybe Momo would leave him alone and get intimidated with his senior superiority at work.. yeah that was it! "Sure.." Varthur replied, rubbing the back of his head. "I've finished all the chairs but you can help clean up the stage area for when the teachers get here and announce stuff.." he concluded casually, moving one of the chairs slightly with a tap of his shoe."Asher!" Varthur heard someone yell behind him as he was about to remind whoever it was that Asher was no longer attending Airdalen until the recognisable brown-haired freak of nature of a fellow senior's feet left the ground through the air about to.. Cr-aaap! Varthur managed to swear in his head before the kick landed square on his face sending him flying to the next wall. "OH YEA! HEAD SHOT!". With Varthur's back sliding against the wall and his cheek red from the incident. "Screw you Tomo.. Screw you.." he muttered quietly so only he could hear, rubbing his sore cheek thinking what on earth he could have done to deserve this. "Wait you're not asher!" Tomoyo replied, helping Varthur up. "Ugh seriously dude.. not cool." Varthur remarked, still rubbing the redness of his left cheek feeling a bit embarrassed taking a hit like that in front of some of the girls already present. Akira, another fellow senior dashed in. "Is there anything left for me to help with? I know I'm late... Sorry, sorry~" Varthur placed a hand to the side of his mouth to yell back, "Oi it's alright, the teacher ain't here yet.. just help finish cleaning the stage!" he directed, somewhat pleased with seeming like the responsible one around here. Maybe THAT would keep crazy little Momo off his case. Varthur turned back to Tomoyo, wanting to return the kick with a special punch of his own but who was he kidding.. he couldn't even climb up a rope in P.E class.

Varthur


His junior Jack looked pretty freaked out when he first approached him. None of the dude’s actions made Varthur think this way, but the guy’s eyes seemed to stare at the sheets of paper as if getting to know about Varthur would be horrifying or traumatic or something .. that was if they were both assuming the same thing about the paper being Q&A on each other as the activity. Varthur felt himself getting paranoid about such small and minor details. Seeing Momo after those three years had made it that way. Man I’m such a goof.. He thought, realising it all. If she hadn’t been spotted, he would’ve been cool, calm and collected as he usually was. Now all he could do was fear for his life at every turn especially as it appeared Kei and her were getting closer. Varthur could really use an ally right now but he was stuck with this junior who didn’t seem to appreciate him. Varthur rubbed his chin to be rational about the situation deviously in a failed effort of trying to come up with a genius plan that would solve all his problems.

"I'm Jack McCoy…" The junior finally responded with his name before yawning, not afraid to show how bored and unexcited he was. “But I'm sure you already knew that or something, bro. And yeah, we're like a pair of socks or something.” Pair of what? Socks? Varthur thought over perplexedly until the junior resumed speaking. If that paper is what I think it is, then forget it, I'll tell you everything now. I like video games, girls, stories… My Mom used to be in the army, and she recently joined the police. My dad owns a popular Karate Dojo, Kyokushin Kaikan if you want specifics, and my Grampa also does Karate, and some Chinese Kenpo. My Grampa puts me through god awful training regiments in an effort to turn me into the successor of our 'Family Legacy' or somethin' like that… I don't care right now. I've never had a girlfriend, and seeing how things are, I may not have one for a long time." Varthur just stayed quiet and listened as the junior spontaneously talked about himself and his family. Not like he had much of anything else to say anyhow. "…And…Uh…I'm NOT a Vegan?” Jack finished with a pleased grin.

Varthur shuffled in his seat just trying to remember these little facts about the kid so he could at least say afterwards that he learned something before actually checking the paper if it was Q&A sheets. The paper turned out to be blanck as he flipped them over repeatedly. Maybe they were lucky, at this rate after the junior..err Jack’s speech, he would have been able to fill it out no problem. “No sweat, the paper is blank so you really didn’t have to tell me your life story but it’s cool bro.. I’ve never had a girlfriend either…” he came around to admitting, a little with shame. This junior probably thought he was a real loser; a senior and in all those years he hadn’t caught a girlfriend. There were a lot of pretty girls too. Such a shame if the year ended again and nothing had happened. Not wanting to let the conversation fall into odd silences, Varthur gulped before talking more about himself. It seemed only fair right? “Gah so.. I’m not into video games.. I like books.. I get good grades and all that jazz.. and I too like girls so don’t worry.” He added, a little jokingly to try to get along. “My mum died when I was young so I never really knew her.. my dad is a businessman and I don’t even know what he does on his trips or even who he.. really is besides my dad. Hardly around and when he is, he’s sleeping or motionlessly stuck to his study. So that’s my family in a nutshell.” Varthur ended thought a bit of depression had escaped into his tone before turning a little to watch the junior’s reaction.

Akira

(OOC: Sorry if it's short and choppy, I'm taking 8 classes now...xD and I slept in tonight/went back to school today)

"I do not!" Akira snapped at Maya's statement about her, "I don't like anyone like that..I have to get my grades up, I don't want to live minimum wage for the rest of my life. I don't have the time for highschool romance. It never ends well anyway.. someone always gets hurt.." she added with a frown at Maya's comment, her face still a dark red. This girl was too observative. Maya, this junior was surely going to be the end of her! Akira turned her attention back to Silas, "You're always so difficult." and she rolled her eyes, "I'm not letting you near Kumi, I thought you could behave, but it seems I never cease to overestimate you Silas." Akira had stopped when he repeated what she'd accidentally slipped out about finding him handsome, "Yeah, so? I was just picking on you. I tend to keep myself at a friendly distance from the wild fire if you haven't noticed.. it was just a harmless compliment." And with that, she rolled her eyes, "You are definitely getting fat." she stuck her tongue out at him, pushing his shirt back down. Akira knew that Silas wasn't fat, but any more embarrassment and she'd end up fleeing to her favorite spot on the roof and Varthur, Kumi and Jack would be partnerless, "Silas, did you ever think some of us could live without being flashed?" she crinkled her nose as if she found it disgusting, slapping his shoulder. What was she doing? She could NOT do this her senior year, it was unacceptable. Silas was her friend, nothing more. Why was she getting so upset when he was flirting with Kumi? It never bothered her when he flirted with other girls. She could not start liking Silas now. She knew what he did with girls, she didn't feel like being the next chew toy, fun for a while then tossed aside like an old shoe. Akira knew that she had to focus on her grades this year if she wanted to get in a good college, so she didn't have time to worry about a boy.

She'd gotten trapped in her thoughts, and she jumped as Kei spoke, Akira nodding at him, "No problem Kei." She smiled sweetly, trying to recover from her previous encounter with Silas. This was going to be a very long year, Maya got her to say something she didn't mean to say at all.. then she noticed the pink haired girl that had caught her attention like a zillion times before today and she smiled at Momo, "Sorry.. nice to meet you as well." she smiled to the pink haired girl, "Seems you got a cute junior too Kei." she added with a grin, "This is a good year."

Akira smiled a bit when she heard Varthur, spinning on her heel, executing it perfectly and swiftly, "Oh, hey, sorry, had to show Silas to Kei, he doesn't seem to remember male faces as much as females." She rolled her eyes, " It's perfectly fine.. I'm sure we'll figure out a way for you to do perfectly fine.." Akira watched Varthur dumbfounded for a moment before reaching out and putting his arms at his sides manually without thinking about it, "Hey, we need to work on a game plan, calm down first, freak out later.. I really understand how you feel right now, but I don't want to lose to HIM." She pointed at Silas and stretched her arms to not be as obvious. When Varthur asked who her junior was, she froze mid stretch and blinked for a moment then pointed at Kumi, "Thats my junior right there, but we're already kind of friends instead of 'junior and senior'." She added with a grin, "Adorable isn't she? Though she might get mad at me for saying that.." then she tapped her chin, "The one running with the ribbon runs by themself right? I didn't understand Mr. Drone that well...he's...eccentric to say the least. " She could run pretty fast by herself, but being tied to someone else is what would drag her down if she did the three-legged-race part.. then she noticed how worried Varthur seemed to be, and she gave him an encouraging smile, "I'll help you with sports if you help me study?" She offered him as well, holding out her hand, "Deal?" she wanted to get to know more people, and seeing as Varthur was smart, he could help her study as she got to know him. It was a win, win situation right?

I.screwed.up. Varthur thought as he felt something randomly jabbing at his arm but he was too dizzy to view what it was. "Dude are you okay?" Varthur blinked as he sat up straight away, seeing two Akiras in front of him. “Akira.. you have a twin?” he asked, rubbing his eyes a bit but after he did and looked on the dizziness seemed to have worsened. “Akira.. you’re triplets.. what?!” he thought aloud before leaning back confusedly and hitting his back hard against the wall that he thought he heard his barely used spine… crack!. “WHAT THE F---“ he moved instantly forward about to swear in pain and shock but he refrained himself just in time remembering he was in the company of two girls. Varthur sighed, his shoulders slouching back in defeat as the announcements by Mr. Drone were given. "You guys did good…sorry me and Jack cost us the game, he just left." Varthur’s head lowered hopelessly as dark vibes seemed to ooze out of his body. That had been happening a lot today..weird. All that work for nothing.. “No sweat.. I guess.. “ he answered casually staring down at his lap as his legs felt limp and his arms numb at the realisation he had exerted his physical abilities for a race only to get disqualified. "I'm not really, but it'd be nice to be outside again…unless.." Varthur looked up as Akira spoke and she looked back down at him. He was smart so it wasn’t hard for him to figure out why she had paused and why she was looking at him in particular as she said it, unless my allergy.. Varthur forced a numb arm to adjust his scarf around his neck as he went back to looking down.

His allergy wasn’t always this bad. Varthur wasn’t sure why over the years his allergic reaction to flowers had gotten worse, it was just the way It was. Doctors couldn’t really explain it nor were they really trying. A few sneezes never killed anyone.. except maybe a bit of Varthur’s confidence. He used to be home-schooled, his father was always away on business trips but they were wealthy so affording a private tutor was no big deal. Young Varthur always felt extremely lonely not socialising with others his age but at the same time scared of change. He used to watch outside his window as other kids played together, wishing that for himself. To have friends, other people he could relate to but he was always scared or worried about confronting the other children.. that maybe they would find him gross for sneezing as constantly as he did. One of the children he had seen, a girl that had caught his eye was Momo. A pink haired girl who used to skip home right past his place and he envied how happy she looked passing by in her uniform, so proud. So one day Varthur started attending school, coincidentally his father had him sent to the same school as that girl.. Momo. He didn’t really get a chance to know her, they attended the same classes but she liked to keep to herself and away from the other students plus he was too shy to talk to girls. Varthur made friends in elementary, many friends in fact but he never forgot about the girl with the pink hair who sat alone in the playground day after day. “Bless you” the first time Momo talked to him was just that, two simple words but he had never been so happy. Shame they were enemies now..

Varthur snapped out of his flashback hoping he didn’t look like an idiot staying still for so long. He turned his head to Kumi and Akira with his vision back in check. No doubles or.. triples. “I could come along to the picnic.. “ he offered, aware of his allergy but also aware he now had a lot of good friends to belong with.. and even cuter girls to think about than that snobbish junior (Momo).

Varthur


"That's it.. I'll be wearing 3 pairs of trunks!" he said outloud to himself, getting paranoid that something was bound to go wrong and embarrassing on a beach full of girls. His frame shivered from head to toe similar to receiving an electric shock or jolt the more he thought about it. He shook his head, shaking the thought bubbles away of endless possibilities. "It'll be fine! It'll be cool!" he reassured himself, stuffing everything in his backpack though it stayed so organised, neat and tidy he could be mistaken for having OCD. He counted his fingers to make sure that he had everything packed before slinging the bag over one shoulder and stepping out of his room bumping into his father. He looked up at the tall man living in his household like a stranger, taking a step back and bowing his head solemnly. "Sorry Mr Laurence." he mumbled under his breath formally, not quite ready to use the term 'dad or 'father' as his hair covered his eyes and the sadness held in them. It was very rare for the two to cross paths in the large estate and when they did, Varthur always felt the most insecure. He looked more like his mother, the black hair and the red-brownish eyes but she had been dead a while already that he was starting to forget her face, if not for a photo frame by his bedside on the table. His father murmured something about running late for work before brushing past the timid boy. Varthur could only wait for the footsteps to be no longer heard as if he were paralyzed on the spot from the very sight of him. He grasped the strap of his bag over his shoulder tightly before turning for the exit quietly not wanting to wake his brother. He had already informed him last night he would be walking to school alone to not miss the bus for the beach outing. His hand gripped the door tightly once more, still feeling unease about seeing his dad before he relaxed and left home to walk to school. His father if he could even really call the man that.. had probably left to work via limousine so he doubted they would cross paths again, at least not today.

He walked slowly with his hands in his pockets, not as lively as he usually was wondering if it would be okay to leave his brother home alone. His dad not really counting as supervision. There's not much I can do anyway.. he thought, gripping the strap of his bag again before moving his head up to look straight ahead. "I'm being stupid.. this is supposed to be a fun day. Don't want to be a party pooper." he said, forcing a smile on his face as he rubbed the back of his head convincingly. He walked a few more streets nearing the direction of the school as he caught sight of someone familiar. At first he had no idea who it was seeing only the back of the head and just had a gut instinct that it was someone he knew. As he neared the person, placing a causal friendly hand on the guy's shoulder, he froze with a sweatdrop immediately removing his hand upon recognition. "Oi Kei.." he said putting a hand up as a wave gesture, acting as if he meant to greet but.. it was just unplanned. He didn't know what to say so he fumbled a little at the attempt at starting a normal conversation like he didn't just randomly touch a dude who punched him the day before... "Packed and ready to.. go go go for the beach?" he said, putting his thumbs up and acting as if they were buddies. He kept up to pace with Kei but was walking backwards with his hands behind his head. A careless move. "So, I hope we're cool now? I've been staying away from.." His bag being carried on just one shoulder was inconveniently moved to the side as his lower body smacked against the school gate. He slimed down against the gate weakly. "Momo... oww..."

Varthur


Akira smiled and the words that came brought him to a smile too."I want to be your friend, I want to try at least." That’d be nice.. Varthur thought, he already had a fair number of friends but that didn’t mean making new friends was less exciting. "It's not necessary, but what if one of us gets sick or has a change of plans? The other will know right away not to show up. Was it weird?" Well yeah I guess that makes sense but.. Varthur thought, rubbing the back of his head trying to think of an excuse rather than saying it out straight forwardly that talking with a girl on the phone was nerve racking. He didn’t miss Akira’s cheeks flush though, making his own do the same. Huh what when? Why are you blushing!? he debated to himself confused and nearly falling backwats as he gave her more space in case he was standing too close or something. Was it something he said? ”I tend to do weird things, so if it was weird, I guess I wouldn't be too offended, besides, I'd rather he tells me what I did wrong so I can learn from my mistake rather than repeat it. “No it’s not weird..” Varthur said, still rubbing the back of his head trying to get over the little confusing and awkward moment. "I will. I like you better like this.. you seem happier than a few seconds ago, even if you seem a little uncomfortable too..." He sweatdropped. I’m real obvious aren’t I? "I dunno. I think I've asked him enough awkward and unorthodox favors.." He just nodded but felt his body freeze over when she leaned and whispered in his ear. Crap she’s standing… TOO CLOSE. "I mean, even though neither one of us plan to be in the room much, asking for his number would make this situation look a lot worse. I just want to get the trip over with and get my female uniform.." He didn’t move until she leaned away. "I only pretended to be a boy in case I wanted to join boys teams in sports, so I have no reason to keep pretending” "I hope you find who you're looking for Varthur.." Boys sports team.. looking for? Ack, right.. he thought, nodding his head over at them before separating.

Varthur went back to his usual group of friends for abit of small talk, treating Chris like nothing happened the other day right before Mr. Drone came and started talking about the excursion and being his odd self. Mr. Drone had actually hugged Chris and a few of his friends making him cringe. I’ll place authentic flowers on your graves.. he thought dramatically with his hands together for prayer. As everyone started heading in, Varthur made sure his bag was in the compartment before going on the bus with his friend Chris by his side. “I thought she was really cute, did you see the way she was checking me out?” Chris started boasting with pride. “Checking you out while being squished by Mr. Drone?” Varthur questioned, raising an eyebrow not completely taken by what his friend was saying. Chris laughed, tossing his head back. “The fact I survived it is a statement of how strong I am too. Plus maybe have a ‘sensitive side’ agreeing to the hug.. Girls love that kind of thing.” Chris explained as Varthur started walking past the rows, walking past Kei and Silas, Momo and Sera, Bishop and Miami then looking ahead at the back row where Akira was sitting by herself. He turned his head at lazy Silas then to Akira with a question mark popping above his head. You’d expect the two as thick as thieves to sit together.. “So dude, think we should take this seat?” Chris asked, gesturing to two vacancies. Varthur waved, “Pass, feel free to sit with your girl junior.” he said with a smile, making Chris shrug. Varthur stopped in the aisle when he reached where Akira was sitting. “Silas is sitting with Kei so would you mind if I sat with you?” he asked confidently like she was any other person before sitting down. Then he really started thinking what he was doing. He had just rode in on instinct of being friendly. Fuck what am I doing sitting next to a girl? his skin flared up red as he leaned forward, holding his head in his hands not only to hide his face but to express a bit of fail as the oozy dark vibes wiggled out from him like possessed tentacles.

"Nah, it's perfectly fine with me." “Okay..” he replied calmly, still holding his head unable to turn and look at her. It would just remind him that he put himself in an uncomfortable situation. Damn, I always act without thinking.. "If it makes you feel any calmer, we can listen to music." He finally turned his head as she offered him an earbud to listen with her. He quickly turned his head away, burning up red. I can’t sh-share earphones.. it could tangle up and we’d be pulled closer together and.. Steam blew out from his ears as he lowered his head more after considering the highly unlikely consequences. “N-no thankyou.” He mumbled not realising Akira wasn’t paying him any attention anymore until she dropped a few items onto his lap. He moved his head upstraight, looking down at his lap confused before looking at the back of Akira as she was standing up, leaning over the seat in front of her. "Ooiii, Momo!" Just when he thought his mood couldn’t get worse. Ahh don’t call her over! he panicked, looking left then right and the pattern continued until he noticed Akira was angry towards the girl instead of offering hospitality. " Lecture him about manners all you want, but can you please exhibit some and quit contradicting yourself? You PRIDE yourself in someone elses pain, I see it, you laugh. Don't think I haven't noticed.." Manners? Varthur moved his head to the side to get a better view of what was going on in front of the bus only to see Momo’s hand on top Silas’ head. Well, it looked a lot like Silas’ blonde hair sticking out of the hood. He could be wrong. It did explain why Akira was worked up. "You don't understand why I fought Maya, just as I don't understand why you tried to hurt Varthur and got him hurt.." Crap she knows about that? Varthur’s heart was racing as he hid in the backseat. He never told anyone but Kei, even Chris didn’t know. Kei you didn’t tell her man did you? No he wouldn’t.. Varthur thought over, his heart still beating and rattling in his rib cage. He lowered his head, not wanting to look anyone in the eye. Why did she have to bring that up suddenly? I’m embarrassed about it enough as it is.. Varthur thought, missing some of the argument and getting caught up in his own shame. He did end up listening more as his name was mentioned once again. ”You think you can push all the guys around because you've got a lot of strength. Varthur, Silas, who is next Momo?" Crap, craap, CRAP! he thought, his hand over his chest where his heart was located. He gulped, his hair falling over his eyes. It was just all out in the open for everyone to judge. If people were really spreading these rumours about him and Momo, why did she have to bring it up and remind them? It was supporting it. "So if you have a problem bring your happy preppy ass back here.." He looked to the front, still hiding as best as he could. Chris you’re probably laughing your butt off somewhere.. he thought, his hand scrunching up a bit of his shirt insecurely as he waited for Momo to say or do something. Ple-please.. please don’t make a fool out of me. he begged in his head, knowing full well she hated him a lot in return.

Momo looked to be whispering something over to Kei before she turned, body facing full to the back where they were and it made him nervous. The very serious face she wore and the way her fists was clenched, was enough to give him a heart attack. "You hate girls like me do you?” it started and the junior started slowly taking a step after step and with each step he grew nervous for them. Both him AND Akira. “If you thought what I did was wrong then you’re just making matters worse… screaming like that in front of all the students here. If anyone has pride it’s you… saying I wave my fists when I was merely holding his head up so it won’t lean on Kei for reasons I can not disclose.” It really got Varthur thinking. What’s wrong with Silas leaning on Kei? he scratched his head as the topic moved very much away from what him and Momo went through which he greatly appreciated. Instead he was left wondering why Momo was against Silas leaning on Kei. Well yeah Silas is.. uncomfortable. Varthur remembered yesterday when the guy poked him in the chest. Was she jealous of the close contact or something? But Silas is a guy.. given, a womanizing guy.. he kept thinking until she delivered her final blow. “You’re a senior.. you should be setting a good example for us juniors not provoking a fight because you see something you don’t like…So next time, remember this and try listening to the reasons of others maybe. “ Varthur could only watch as the drama unfolded, unknowing how to step in. So far, it was being ruled by girls. Akira then Momo reacting then another pink haired girl (Miami) stepped in. He didn’t know what to believe. On one side, he wanted to defend Akira but she looked like she could handle herself pretty well. On the other side, he was upset that she had brought his history to the table and that she had dumped her stuff on him without asking.. like a table. Did she even consider how I’d feel about this.. he thought, sighing quietly as Akira stomped down the aisle to where Momo was. He held up his head with one hand placed on his forehead. I can’t believe this is happening.. you’d think everyone would be in good spirits for the beach.

Akira made her way back with a different look, a less angry appearance. "Gomen, Gomen.. I exploded again.." Varthur sweatdropped the same time she did. How did I get caught in this mess? he wondered. "My grandmother has me an appointment with my shrink though, I'll be getting remedicated soon.." Akira laughed but Varthur still felt uneasy, wearing an obvious frown as his elbows leaned on his jean covered knees. He looked at her for a while, not even a single hesitating blush crept up. This was serious, a very serious and delicate time. “You really shouldn’t.. gah.” He stopped himself from telling her what he thought, looking away and glancing to the other side still frowning. No, it wouldn’t be right to lecture her just because I’m the ‘valedictorian’.. he rubbed his mouth with the back of his hand, looking out someone else’s side window. “You know.. Kei punched me the other day but I didn’t tell you..” he decided to lecture her but in a less direct approach, still not sparing her a glance. “What would have happened if I told you that before you guys got along so well.. can you just imagine it? I know you mean well but you really have to think these things through…” he advised, looking down at his shoes. “Just hear me out.. I could have done what you did, gotten outraged at Kei but instead I approached him at a better time to check what was up. Turns out it was all a misunderstanding so you see..” he rubbed the back of his neck not sure if he was saying this all right. “I hate Momo.. I’ll admit that.. but she has a point. You can lose people like that..” he mumbled softly before standing up, her items falling off his lap as he had forgotten it was sitting there. “I don’t think I’m the best person for this type of conversation.. if you want, I’ll go get Silas for you.” He said, standing up with his hands falling in his pockets still not looking at her face. He just couldn’t, thinking she may be mad at him for not completely taking her side. He understood her reasons but she had reacted so badly it was frightful. What if she got a boyfriend, just how defensive and jealous would she get if a girl touched his head even though it was harmlessly? Varthur was still hurt by it all, being mentioned and put on the spot and having to remember those days. He figured Akira was just trying to defend him but that only made things worse. He could hear people a few rows down start gossiping about him, some of it was really bad. He heard a particular comment that went: ”I knew Varthur wasn’t as smart as he pulls off.. getting hurt by a junior girl? And I thought the wall was enough.” The laughter just droned on and drilled in his head. “Crap..” he muttered under his breath, not used to being a laughing stock while he was waiting for one last Akira response before finding somewhere else to sit if he wasn’t wanted.

Varthur


Varthur was glad she wasn’t reacting negatively towards him and hoped she had greatly calmed down by now, it didn’t really matter if it was because of him or not. "No one is going to let me let it go. I doubt they're done screaming at me, and they have the right to be mad, an anger disorder doesn't make it right, I know that." Anger disorder.. hm. he thought over quietly, still able to feel her head on his shoulder so the blush never left his cheeks as he continued breaking eye contact. "I don't have a good reason to. Give me a really good one." he heard the forcefulness in her laugh and it pained him to hear it. Shucks Akira.. you don’t have to pretend. "I don't think you're an idiot. You're a lot smarter than me. Oh, and you smell nice.." Smell nice? He placed a hand on his head, messing up his black hair not knowing what to say to that. “Er.. thanks.” He mumbled. I guess it’s a compliment.. I usually overhear girls whine about how smelly guys are when I pass by the locker rooms. He turned his head, watching her drop the ipod and everything else she had for entertainment near her feet and he gulped feeling nervous now that she wasn’t letting herself be distracted. ”I..won't bite you know.. I only got mad when she did it because she was scolding him when she did it. Touch is something serious, I don't think you should lay hands on someone while your mad, unless you're looking to fight." she said as he looked back at her while she wiped her eyes. He sighed quietly. So she was crying.. even if just a little.

All he did was listen as she spoke, letting her get all the trouble off her chest. "It makes me more pissed off when someone touches me and scolds me, than when they just scold me.. it heightens the anger in my opinion." “I guess I share that opinion too..” he muttered, still looking at her and nowhere else. Slowly he was getting comfortable in her company, even the blush was fading. When she spoke again though, it brought him to reality having to think about the gesture more than necessary. "Does this bother you..? I know you did it to help, but I don't want to lean on you if you don't like it.” She lifted her head off his shoulder and stared at him. Don’t look at me like that..ugh. He looked down at his shoes instead, not moving his shoulder though he was feeling a bit shaky with nerves. “It’s not that I don’t like it.. It’s not that I don’t like girls either..” he started explaining whilst rubbing the back of his neck. “Honestly I’m just not used to girls. My mother was the only female figure in my life and when she died, I went to school and I only talked to other guys..“ he removed his hand off his neck so it fell on his knee still staring down at his shoes. “I know her death wasn’t my fault but I always feel like I underappreciated her and failed her as a good son. I’d never want to underappreciate or fail another girl in some way.. so I guess that makes me a coward and why I haven’t landed a girlfriend or gotten chicks like Silas.” He said, looking back at her feeling good about saying that for some reason. It wasn’t something he could say to anyone, particularly his other mates like Chris. Felt good to have a female friend for a change. He smiled reassuringly, “So lean on me when you’re not strong~” he started singing as they sat in the back seat before laughing, trying to evoke a much happier feeling. He ditched what other people would be thinking for a moment or what they were possibly saying. He wasn’t a good singer but decent enough to sing in tune. I hope this is reason enough for you to smile again Akira..

Varthur


Varthur started walking off before looking behind him to notice the junior Bishop trailing behind with his surfboard confusedly like a lost duckling. Bishop was rather.. quiet and brief in his responses leading Varthur to think something was up in his head. He didn’t want to mess up the second time around with Jack disliking him and now Bishop who seemed reluctant for conversation. “Uh you okay man?” Varthur questioned, rubbing the back of his head looking at the kid (Bishop) for hopefully a more informative reply. “If you have something you want to ask, don’t hesitate otherwise I can’t help you.” He advised, letting out a small laugh to lighten the mood before his head turned noticing the other familiar faces. Silas looked busy, reassigned to a new junior (Sera), the very same girl Momo was befriending from the looks of things. Steam escaped his ears along with a whistle sound similar to a train at the flashback of the girl’s (Sera) straight forwardness in calling him cute so he looked away, fumbling with his scarf to hide his embarrassment. I really need to get over this venustraphobia! he thought before looking back at his own junior. “Let’s hurry up, we can walk and talk. I’m pretty excited about the beach aren’t ya?” Varthur decided if the kid was reluctant for conversation, he should just initiate a topic they could both relate to. “So are you fitting into Airdalen nicely?” he asked another question, not wanting to leave a boring silence between them and trying to make himself as friendly and outgoing as possible which was easy to do considering his popularity -Not that he knows he is popular-.

He rubbed shoulders with his friend Chris along the way and spotted Kei and Momo a little bit ahead of them making him shrink in sight. He wasn’t scared of Kei anymore as they had cleared out the misunderstanding but Momo was still a discomfort zone though he hated to admit, he was glad she had handled Akira well and not blown off too. He started thinking about the Devone situation with a chill up his spine. The things that girl probably thought of that he had the ability to do if he wanted to being rich too but never thought of doing. It was eery, even more as she was a girl. Weren’t girls supposed to be like the Powerpuff girls most the time? Made of sugar, spice and everything nice? Varthur’s hands slapped the sides of his head feeling idiotic. Why does my brother watch such girly shows anyway? Now the powerpuff girl theme song is stuck in my head. ARGH! He realised he had stopped moving, freaking out for what looked like to outsiders for no reason. “Ehehe.. need help carrying that surfboard mate?” he offered, trying to avoid having to explain his odd behaviour. He was just like that, his emotions leaked without restraint. If anything he was good at handling, it could have been considered pain as although sometimes he would jiggle about and yell, he was pretty used to getting hurt and could say nothing if he wanted to. He just never found much reason to do that besides avoiding moving around like a baboon. He turned his head noticing another junior by himself (Sebastian). "Hey kid, want to come to the cabins with us?" he called out, waving his arm to the redhead. Varthur put on a friendly welcoming smile thinking if he invited another junior, Bishop may be more comfortable instead of so quiet. He liked the junior and senior program, the idea of helping new students fit in and feel right at home even though he hadn't had much luck so far.

Mizuki sniffed Akira threw her jacket over her head. "You can cry if you want to.. I won't tell anyone.."Mizuki's eye's or, eye, went soft. Akira seemed to be the type of person Mizuki needed at this point. Someone who would care for her when she has no one else to turn too. "Besides, now no one can see, not even me. If anyone does notice and asks why you have my jacket on like that, I'll tell them it's because you didn't have on sunblock yet." Mizuki lifted the jacket up a tiny bit to see the smile Akira on her face. She let out a weak laugh at that, looking at her own pale skin. "I.. got in a fight with Maya over Silas." Mizuki nodded as the jacket rested on her head, tears gradually poured out of her eyes silently. "It was wrong, the way I went about it, but she really humiliated him and kidnap is a serious offense. I wanted to get that straight, before you hear the story in a different context. I don't like to bully others.. I was just defending my first real friend, like you feel about Miami." Mizuki nodded in understandment, slightly excited on a few things. One, being she could finally arrest Akira's (Miami's dad, Mizuki's brother-in-law.)number one enemy.

"I would do anything for him. I yelled at Momo because I misunderstood the situation.. Miami was just defending her like a good friend, so I need to apologize." Mizuki smiled a bit, clearly seeing where this was going a bit. "My pills for my anger issues were shipped late, so I sort of have to take extra care about my anger until we're home. It's hard enough to control a normal ranged temper, let alone an irregular one.." Mizuki slowly took the jacket off her head, digging in her bag for something that could help Akira, possibly even if it's just a bit. "Silas will . . do a lot of things by the way. It's best not to provoke him unless you're ready for concequences.." Mizuki rolled her one eye with a slight pout. Oh boy did she know that one. "It's moments like that that make me wonder why I like someone like hi-" Mizuki's eye went huge at Akira, almost as if it would pop out of her head at this point.

Mizuki smiled, looking over to Akira as she used to bag as a pillow as laid next to he. "Miami is okay. It won't take much effort to put up with her, she only insulted my chest size, which, is quite decieving when I dress like this. I perfer males to percieve me as a male. Girls are treated different. Isn't that right, P.S.B.?" Mizuki could hear the hint of tease in Akira's voice as she spook up. "Totally. Of course, if you show them up in the end by beating them in whatever little game they play at. In this world today, sexists are a total threat for us girls. They could try and take away everything women have worked so hard to earn." Mizuki said proudly, taking out a few anti-anger pills. "Just let me know if you need some... I brought them for myself orignally because of what Miami told me about Silas... I kinda got the feeling somehow I was gonna be pissed." Mizuki confessed shyly. "And don't be so hard on yourself, if you even are, about liking... him. All ya need to do it end up beating him in his own game." Mizuki proudly stated, ruffling Akira's head.

"Bishop and Miami do look adorable together.. I hope they become a couple, it may do them both a lot of good." Mizuki nodded in agreement, not only would it do them both a lot of good, but Mizuki as well. "Hey, do you want to go change into swimwear? We can go swim or something. I'd have to stop by my male dorm though to drop off my bag." Mizuki smiled a she got up. "Sure. I need to get my junior though. Intrestly enough, he's a cute redhead." Mizuki said, pulling out the picture of her junior (Sebastian). "So, I'll see you in a moment~" Mizuki added happily. Quickly, she ran to the nearest person she was with red hair (Sebastian).

She looked over to the boy who looked slightly like Daichi (Varthur) and the blonde Miami liked (Bishop). "Sorry I'm late. I'm your Senior. Mizuki Takizawa." Mizuki mumbled to the redhead (Sebastian) with a smile. "If you want, you can go follow those wonderful gentlemen to the cabins and pick one out." Mizuki offered, knowing that it could be a little akaward with a girl with you. She quickly looked over to the blonde (Bishop). "Miami and me are rooming together... Just let me know if you wanna have... 'fun' with her tonight so I can find somewhere else to room." Mizuki asked kindly with a smile as she waited for her junior (Sebastian) to decide.

Miami Takizawa

Miami blushed on the bus as Bishop had snuggled with her, only to have time fly by and before she knew it, she was just standing off by herself by her and Mizuki's cabin. "Whoa... when did I get here?" Miami mumbled to herself as she walked in, dropping off her bag on a bunk and changing onto her swimsuit. Miami frowned the the mirror as the top seemed to almost flaunt her breasts. "Too big..." Miami whispered as she left the cabin. Looking around, Miami yawned slighly. Straight ahead, Sera and Silas were flirting, nothing too new anyway. Then, Miami drew her attention to Mizuki running away from Akira and to a red haired boy (Sebastian).

Miami laughed a bit as she strolled down to the water and simply at on it boredly. There wan't much even going on anyway, so why did it matter? Miami slowly got up and jogged back to her and Mizuki's cabin, taking out a water gun fully loaded. "Let's see if Silas likes this... Mwhahaha!" Miami laughed evily, jogging back out and behide Sera, spraying her with the water first before spraying Silas. "Mwhahaha!" Miami meekly attempted the evil laughter once more as she turned around and jogged over to Bishop, a boy who looked like Daichi (Varthur), a redhead (Sebastian), and Mizuki. She smirked and sprayed everyone there, right in the face out of boredom. "You can all blame Bishop, because he hasn't done the breathing underwater contest yet!" Miami shouted proudly with her arms crossed and her water gun away from Mizuki. "Now hurry up Bishop... Before I get mustard in the gun and blast it over everyone." Miami demanded jokingly with a smile.

Kaoru


Kaoru blinked up at (Devone), his eyes determined, yet the fear was definitely present inside his blue eyes, but they closed when he felt a pressure against his head. I am not a dog!! He twitched at the thought, but he needed her help, so he could deal with this for a few moments at the very least. After all, when in rome. He tilted his head away from her, a pout upon the tiny boy's features. This girl is something else.. He mumbled it to himself mentally, but he kind of liked her, she wasn't hugged up on him because he was 'shota' or 'kawaii' the mere thought made him shiver, "Alright I suppose.. I can't make you." He forced a kind smile. Why are all the Seniors so rude to us Juniors anyway? Weren't they a Junior once too? He ran a hand through his blue hair, trying to make up another game plan. Girls are so difficult, they're either treating my like a kid, or not paying attention to me at all like this one, thats why I perfer gu-.. He instantly tensed. No. Don't even think of that!

He frowned a bit at the tone she'd voiced her opinion in, then he couldn't help but smirk. Ha, teacher intervention. Serves you right Ice Queen. He made a snickering sound aloud, but only enough for (Devone) to hear. This side of her is kind of cute in a deadly way~ He snickered again and blinked when the teacher began dancing, taking his phone out and recording it, "Who is he? Does he do this often?" The boy asked curiously, unsure if he would actually get an answer. Kaoru gasped out when he was suddenly tugged alone, jamming his phone into his pocket. He blinked to see it was that girl, and he once again smirked. Looks like I win, Ice Queen. His mood returned to chipper and bubbly so he looked around as he kept up, almost making it pointless for her to drag him in the first place. You almost ripped my arm off. I need to play beach volleyball, careful.. he thought with a whine. He had to prove himself somehow even if he only helped his team score one point, for a short kid like him, that was pretty awesome.

Kaoru knew she wasn't listening to him, so he kept his words scarace, maybe she would reply if he only said a few short sentences. What is with this girl? This is the beach after all, does she not have friends? He tilted his head to gaze up at her, Why do I feel she's lonely? He ended up staring, trying to read the older girl as they walked. I can't tell much else about her, other than the fact she keeps everyone at an arms distance, but why? People are great, shoulders to cry on, someone to hug when you're happy or having a bad day..why wouldn't she want that? This girl is different from the rest, I may enjoy aggervating her.. he snickered at the thought. She seems cutest when she is angry. What is the worst she could do to me anyway? It's not like I'm that weak. Yep, she's my new toy, if she acknowledges it or not. Ice Queen~ you're up for the game of your life. I am not afraid of girls like you. I won't steer clear from you so easily.. what will you do~?

Kaoru laughed when water hit his face as they passed the line of fire, tilting his head a bit, "Wow, she's cute." he grinned when he saw Miami, not even bothering to keep his voice down. He was a male after all, he was just decently open about his findings. She can have a water fight with me any day of the week.. he was slightly flushed, trying not to think of how many attractive girls he would encounter on this trip. Sure he could flirt and play off his boyish looks, but he wasn't immune to getting flustered either. He was actually easily embarrassed when he lost control of a situation, "Thank you sweetheart~ I can't wait to see you in a swimsuit~" he winked at her teasingly, clearing out of her arms distance just in case she tried to retaliate to his flirty reply. Heh, she's going to be fun to play with! He thought excited. I wonder if there is already boys in this cabin? He put his stuff down infront of the cabin, opening the door and just sliding it in for safety. He'd move elsewhere if the boys who potentially owned the room didn't want him. He stripping his shirt, shoes, and pants, placing them on his bag and running back to where he'd saw a group formed. His blue and white trunks he previously wore under his clothes suited him rather well and was now on display as he stopped when he finally found them again. He looked to (Varthur, Miami, Bishop etc) before smiling politely, "T-the last person I met wasn't too friendly.. mind if I join you guys?" His blue eyes were pleading as he looked up to all of them, the only ones he was close to in height were the girls, but he was even shorter than some of them..it didn't help he posessed a feminine quality to him as well.

Sebastian Sento

Sebastian could feel his blood run cold as he watched the water ebb and flow back and forth on the beach.
Buts his eyes come hurriedly back into focus when he hears one of the other students (Varthur) speaking to him from his side."Hey kid, want to come to the cabins with us?"
Sebastian has the chance to react to being spoken however his time was cut short by the eye patched girl from earlier on the bus (Mizuki) She was approaching on the same line as the other one name. Trying to help get him situated into the festivities on the beach, but Sebastian could only give her a halfhearted look with his torn expression.
"If you want, you can go follow those wonderful gentlemen to the cabins and pick one out." He just looked pacing his view between the two as he tried to formulate an answer.

These two where seniors and it was easy for him to tell as such, but he was just worried about the whole situation. They where both well and nice enough for offering their assistance to him and that only made him feel more unsettled by the moment. He began to stutter slightly at the end of his tongue where he attempted to speak.."I- It Its fine.. miss.. Mizuki is it?" He was still very uneasy with social introductions, even with those he took any sort of liking to.
"I'm alright with going to the cabins for the moment." He did his best to keep some kind of formality with her even though hey where in such a setting.. "Besides I do need to get the rest of my things situa...!!" and then as if by divine intervention he barely spied the pink haired girl (Miami) came from around Mizuki's side. Unfortunately he didn't see the item she was holding as was at a severe disadvantage when she sprayed the three of them with a few jets of water from her water gun.
The sensation of the water touching his skin was enough to elicit a slightly rash response from him, as his eyes dilated and his pulse quickened he did his best to shield himself like an ant in the suns rays. The gasp of air he exhumed was only enough to power a quick jut of his shoulders as he lifted his left hand in defense.
His palm flew up in front of his face and covered his eyes, exposing the lurid amount of scarring that covered the underside of his forearm and the crescent shape indention in his hand to both the girls.

He huffed a large puff of air at the girl, still doing his best to keep his actions reserved. He does however take the small moment to look her over in his response to being sprayed and had she not been in her swim wear he may have reacted differently.
He just stares her down for a moment and looks back to Mizuki and Varthur, nodding to the both of them before gathering his two bags and making his way towards one of the side cabins.
Getting a good head of steam in his stride and doing his best to leave the three behind as he closed the door to cabin 3.

The cabin was sparse on the inside despite being how well kept it looked, taking the time to set his things aside before he was joined by anyone else. The day wasn't nearly over as he sat on the foot of the bed and he could already feel the soreness setting in deep in his sides. Taking several small bottles of pills out of the side pocket from his backpack he sets then on the nightstand as he takes adjust himself on the bed. He lobs four of them into his mouth and proceeds to swallow the lot without much trouble or need for water to drink. He took the rest of the moments he had alone to pull up his pants leg and look at his prosthetic for a quick second.
As long as he kept some type of foot wear on and some high socks he could keep the sand out and the other students in the dark about his condition. Sliding his pants leg back down he cant help but drop his head into both his hands and worry that this was all going too fast for him.. ~What am I going to do?~ He thought too himself as his face rocked back from side to side in his palms.

Kaoru


Kaoru blinked at the dark haired male (Varthur) completely perplexed. This senior was, in his opinion, behaving rather foreignly for a guy at the beach. He didn't understand why the taller boy was shielding his eyes no matter how hard he tried to relate, but he decided to observe for now and ask questions later. He felt himself sweatdrop when he realized the tall black haired boy was practically on the ground, now lower than even himself. He knelt down and poked the stranger (Varthur) a few times, tilting his navy haired head to the right, "Are you alright?" the blue eyed boy asked inquisitively to him, "Uhm she had lengthy black hair, and she was kind of unsympathetic and unpleasant, but she was amusing to aggravate." Kaoru answered as he struggled to describe her (Devone) to (Varthur), "I just call her Ice Queen to myself, though I doubt she would appreciate it if she knew though." He then grabbed Varthur by the hands, "What're you so scared of senpai?" he asked curiously. He didn't understand (Varthur's) jumpiness around girls, he liked being around girls and he liked seeing them in swimsuits. Is this guy gay or just shy? I actually cannot tell for once. Ugh, you better answer me quickly..and please don't take this as a homosexual pass at you.. you're not exactly my type so far...so far.. Kaoru tried to keep his thoughts to himself, but it was hard to not judge the senior when he seemed to be absolutely opposed to girls in bikinis.

Then the boy’s observation transferred to a really tall blonde, he looked pretty built (Bishop), especially compared to the darker haired boy. Hmm, now this I like, intriguing. I'd love to get my hands on that, but this is not the time or place. It was a disaster the last time I expressed that side.. He caught himself raising an eyebrow when Bishop reacted like a clown towards the really cute pink haired girl (Miami). What the hell is wrong with these guys? It’s just a girl in a bikini with a water gun. Even if she is cute, what is the big deal? He sighed to himself, shaking his head when the blonde (Bishop) walked off, “Really? Like it wasn’t obvious he was staring at her chest even before he spilled out the word breasts. ” he laughed to himself, “Not that I can say I blame him. Cherry Blossom is a sight for sore eyes.” He then turned his attention to the dark haired male who seemed to be having an anxiety attack (Varthur). I am going to make you enjoy yourself if it kills me.. Then he got an interesting thought, a light bulb practically appearing above his head, “Isn’t there a girl you want to see in a bikini senpai? Or are you a player for the other team?” he asked blatantly, blue eyes staring at him, waiting for an answer. The small statured boy seemed to be bothered by very little in the verbal department. This was because Kaoru played for both teams, regardless of how much he denied it. He wasn’t embarrassed to ask such questions, he didn’t see the harm in it. A question is a question, it can't hurt anyone. He was used to ‘girl talk’. He lived with a girl after all. He was a great listener, could stand the boy band music, but he also could be a total guy and talk about boobs, and sports and don’t get even him started on videogames. Though, Alcohol, partying, and intimate relationships were out of his league. He’d had girlfriends, he’d kissed girls, but he wasn’t very insistent, he was still fairly innocent. Kaoru rolled his eyes after growing impatient, he wanted to get active, “I promise you won’t get bitten by the average girl on this trip for accidentally staring at her chest, hell most of them would probably be flattered. Now, on to more pressing matters! I heard one of the guys mention chicken, but I doubt you’re up for a girl on your shoulders.." The boy trailed off, tapping his forehead trying to think, then his face brightened up, "Do you know how to play Beach Frisbee?” he inquired, trying to find something easy, yet appealing, for the rather lanky boy to do. Beach frisbee would be easy.. and I could compensate for my height in that game..

Varthur


Varthur's shoulder got poked a few times but he hardly noticed, too troubled as he kept his hands firmly in front of his eyes. Crap, I just know I'm going to offend someone if I let myself look on.. "Are you alright?" Varthur turned his head so his eyes crept up above his hands at the unknown junior (Kaoru) "Uhm she had lengthy black hair, and she was kind of unsympathetic and unpleasant, but she was amusing to aggravate." Ah... he's talking about his senior.. "I just call her Ice Queen to myself, though I doubt she would appreciate it if she knew though." There's only one Ice Queen in the whole senior body. Varthur thought as Devone's face popped up in his head. Varthur was startled as he felt his hands grabbed, for a moment thinking his shield to remain innocent was about to be pulled away from him. "What're you so scared of senpai?" The junior (Kaoru) asked making him narrow his head a bit shameful of telling another male, a junior of all folks what he was scared of. It probably sounded ridiculous spoken aloud. "Scared of looking at a girl and offending her without meaning to..." he confessed in a mutter before facepalming. “Really? Like it wasn’t obvious he was staring at her chest even before he spilled out the word breasts.” Breasts?!?! The word on it's own made Varthur freeze up and blush insanely, his hands burning touching the blushing action as they remained glued to his face from the facepalm. “Not that I can say I blame him. Cherry Blossom is a sight for sore eyes.”

Cherry blossom.. reminds me of Momo. Varthur thought, removing his hands from his face and looking away deep in thought. I hate cherry blossoms.. they make me sneeze too. Troll trees. “Isn’t there a girl you want to see in a bikini senpai? Or are you a player for the other team?” Varthur looked at the junior, hopping backwards in the sand with a hand up like a stop sign. "Whaaaat?!" he let the shock and confusion appear on his face and gesture. "I don't... I don't know!" he said quickly, not wanting to appear as a guilty party. He actually didn't think about it till Kaoru asked. "I don't have anyone.." he said sadly, head drooping between his knees sadly as dark vibes started oozing out of him. "But I'm not homosexual. Just unbearably 'forever alone'." he said as more of a joke as he chuckled a bit before lifting his head up with a usual smile. “I promise you won’t get bitten by the average girl on this trip for accidentally staring at her chest, hell most of them would probably be flattered. Now, on to more pressing matters! I heard one of the guys mention chicken, but I doubt you’re up for a girl on your shoulders.." Varthur's dark oozy vibes returned though his face remained intact with the smile, trying to keep up a good mood. I know.. I suck at physical activity but can you really tell that just by looking at me? "Do you know how to play Beach Frisbee?” he inquired. "Oh uh yeah.. played as a child I guess.." Varthur scratched his head, standing up again so he towered over the junior (Kaoru). "Hey by the way.. what is your name again?" Varthur asked, scratching his head a bit more. He wasn't sure if he already heard it, cause if he did he forgot after accidentally looking in wrong directions on the beach.

Kaoru


Kaoru laughed to himself as the senior (Varthur) mentioned his fear of being disrespectful to the girls, “I think they’ll feel worse if you don’t look at them. You might make them feel ugly. Just look at their face longer than you look anywhere else.” His grin was self-assured, trying to reassure the other male, “This is the beach, have fun. Why do you think they wear those impractical little strings? They want you to look.” He rubbed the back of his head. He couldn’t think of any other purpose girls would tromp around on sandy beaches in such little clothing. He hoped he was right, but he kept his facial expression unwavering and unruffled. He had to help the Senior feel more confident about his current situation, “You won’t have any fun if you keep your eyes plastered to your hands the whole trip.”

Kaoru blinked at Varthur’s response, tipping his head and gazing up at the sky “It’s not like you’re a horrendous ogre if you want to see one of them in a swimsuit. I found the girl with the squirt guns to be quite darling. I need to catch up with her sometime.” He grins goofily, his cheeks a little flushed. She was tremendously cute.. “Well, we’ll just have to figure out which girl you like.” Kaoru shrugs as if it was a simple, mundane task, “Uhm, I didn’t catch your name, so unless you want to be called Eiffel Tower.. may I know it?” he inquires with a laugh. He had a knack for giving everyone a nickname; it was kind of his quirk. Ice Queen (Devone), Cherry Blossom (Miami), Effiel Tower (Varthur).

“I wasn’t asking if you have a girlfriend, I don’t either.” He snickers a bit, wondering if the other male misinterpreted his question. Does he seriously not have a crush on anyone? Wow. I’ve only been on the beach like, maybe twenty minutes and I’ve found two super cute girls. One was a bit feisty albeit, but she was still cute. “I was just asking if you like anyone on this trip. I was going to let you impress her if you do.” He winks a bit, “Girl’s love a shota.” He states confidently. He seemed to abuse the fact he was ‘boyishly cute’ when it came to girls. Though if he were with all the guys, he’d definitely view his short stature as a detestable feature. What guy wishes to be seen as the small fry? He didn’t know a single dude who would ask to be short, so he simply abused the fact when it could be of use, but he didn’t enjoy it. He’d give anything to be taller. What girl falls in love with the shorty? Girls don’t date shorter guys.. “I see, well, lets go make ourselves known. Who knows, girls might ask to join, or we can just look cool with minimal chance of falling and looking pitiful. If you fall in beach Frisbee you just look determined, ne sempai?” he asks with a immature grin, not wanting to ruin the happy mood of the beach. Kaoru didn’t know if Varthur was especially good or bad at sports, but he presumed the other boy would do better at Frisbee seeing as his coordination might be diminished considering all the bikinis tromping around the beach. He wanted to help the other boy look cool, not make himself a bigger laughingstock. You need to chill, though it’s kind of cute seeing you all nervous like that Eiffel tower. Kaoru’s shrugged off his thoughts, he knew he couldn't keep thinking like that. His eyes widened when he took note of how much taller Varthur actually was, standing up to feel a little better about himself, “Kaoru Inoue.” He murmurs back softly, positioning one hand on his hip, “Good. We’ll play that then. It will be good for you, keep your mind off the bikini’s and whatnot.”

Kaoru smiled cheerfully when he realized that his pep-talk was having a least a slight effect on the senior, “ Trust me. Girls want to be reassured they are cute.. even the intimidating ones. ” He chuckled at this, thinking back to Ice Queen ( Devone ). Though I wonder about that one, does she really keep everyone at that distance or did I come across as someone she wouldn’t like from the get-go? He shrugged the thought off easily. He wasn’t one to linger, especially when he had cuter girls on his mind.

“ Girls. Wear. Bikinis. Because. They. Want. Men. To. Look. “ Kaoru sounds each word out slowly, making sure to pause between them in order to get his concept across to the senior. Kaoru grinned at Varthur, “ I am glad that we both see it my way. ” Kaoru chimed out in a happy-go-lucky tone. He was short, possibly shorter than some of the girls; Although Akira was an inch or two shorter than him definitely if one wanted to quickly measure him approximately. She was the shortest girl in the senior class, so he was doing better than her in the height department. “ Nice to meet you Varthur. ” Kaoru grins to him now that he had his name, “ Don’t put yourself down like that! If I looked at myself and made insults like that to my pride I don’t think I’d make it through the day. ” Kaoru grabbed Varthur by the arm, dragging him off further onto the beach if the other boy allowed him, doing his best to force him to move forward otherwise. You're skinny, I think I could budge you by force towards the girls if I have to.. but I'm going to give you an option before I try.. god knows you could probably pick me up. I'd hate that. “ I got one of those Nerf Frisbee’s.. let’s go before it’s too late. ” He mumbles in a slight boyish pout. Kaoru was good at displaying his boyish charm with pride when it would work to his favour. He was really a manipulative little Junior if it came down to it. His eyes looked up to Varthur, “ You’re so tall. I won't lie and say I'm not jealous. ” He frowns, his pout growing. The blue haired boy looks up at the sky with a frown. It was getting dark soon, dark meant partying, partying meant flirting. However, he only knew Varthur and Ice Queen ( Devone ) and that was only a short aquaintence.

Kaoru blinked at Varthur confused, then looked at the three they’d passed. Wow.. those guys were really tall too.. but the girl seemed about the same height as me. He let go of Varthur, blinking and hissing a bit when he realized the crash was his fault, “I’m sorry Var, I didn’t mean to.” He rubbed the back of his head, sweatdropping nervously. He blinked at Varthur and jumped back for a moment as his upperclassmen began screaming he was hot.. he grabbed the black haired boy's hand quickly, rushing Varthur to one of the boy’s public bathrooms, “You need some cold… non-saltwater to wash off under. The rooms are too far away, this’ll be closer. Just hop under one of the showers.” He informed the senior as he did his best to drag him along again, but this time to actually help with something that was his fault, and much more careful and considerate to Varthur’s balance and pace. Glad I noticed a map on the wall of the cabin and made sure to note where the bathrooms were.

“Guess we won’t get to play Frisbee.. oh well.. that girl (Akira) mentioned a party right?” he asked tilting his head, opening the door to the public bathroom and letting go of Varthur. Walking in like that together would just be creepy..Though, I hope that it’s just because the sand was hot and it’s not something more serious.. He perched himself on a sink, “I’m not sure where the showers are, but they always have them.” The boy ran a hand sheepishly through his blue hair, closing his eyes that matched almost creepily well. I’ve screwed up a lot already, and I didn’t really get to do anything except cause Varthur a lot of trouble. He shook it off, forcing a smile to his face. Don’t dwell on it, you’re doing your best to make it up to him after all.

He tilted his head, “Sorry about that.” He apologized for the second time, unsure if the senior was angry. Normally he wouldn’t care what a male thought, but he didn’t have any other friends, he didn’t want to piss off his first one. That would just be stupid. I guess I can go as I am right? Just grab a shirt and just go in my trunks? I’m sure it’ll be fine. I don’t feel like changing.. too much effort goes into it. I’m just itching to meet people!

Kaoru blinked when Varthur confessed to not really paying attention, shaking his head. You really are rotten luck with girls aren’t you Tower? He laughed to himself, but shrugged, “Well, yeah, she mentioned a party. Sounds interesting in my opinion.” Kaoru swung his legs back and forth youthfully while sitting on one of the bathroom sinks. He wasn’t that concerned with germs. He was the sporty type all of his life, he was used to all sorts of disgusting. He raised an eyebrow at the other male who seemed to be a bit disturbed by it. Is he more of a pixie than me or what? The men’s room isn’t going to have scented pink towelettes, I can promise you that. He closed his eyes, entertained a bit. Although Tower’s a bit older than me, he acts really young as well. I guess that’s why I kind of like him. He’s not a self-centred senior. This is somebody I’d like to be friends with. I wonder if he feels the same way? Guy’s don’t usually question those sorts of problems though. He might think I’m creepy, being bisexual and all doesn’t make this any easier on my case. Not to mention this situation.. He was slightly flushed, not because he felt attracted to Varthur, but the thought of there being a misunderstanding, it made him shudder. I don’t want to lose my only friend because of something as senseless as that.

He turned his attention back to Varthur, “I see, well, I’ll try to keep that in mind and pull you more gently. I just get really excited, that’s all.” He grinned sheepishly, though he knew Varthur couldn’t see him by this point. He jumped when Varthur mentioned finding it, “I told you. Now hurry up!” he laughed, hopping from the sink and adjusting his hair in the mirror, “Yeah, I’d like to. Why? Are the parties usually lame or something?” He asked, not too concerned. He just wanted to meet more people. Possibly flirt with that pink haired girl some (Miami). He tensed, jumping out of his skin and almost poking his own eye out when he heard Varthur scream, “Don’t do that! I thought something was terribly wrong..!” he snapped breathlessly. He was on edge. Guys were always first to judge a bisexual guy. He couldn’t help but be nervous about Varthur finding out. I won’t let anyone know..

Varthur



“Well, yeah, she mentioned a party. Sounds interesting in my opinion.” Varthur felt a bead of sweat trickle down his forehead nervously at the thought of attending a party. The last party he attended was one of his father's with business associates and other family friends gathered that was hosted at their mansion's ballroom. Unfortunately for Varthur, a girl had asked him for a dance and he had screwed up somewhere halfway through the song and received a slap for his clumsy ways. His father already didn't seem to have any fondness towards his sons, but that situation had only made things worse and given him more reason to be displeased. Varthur had almost come around to despise himself, just as his father despised him had it not been for school; a place he could be himself and be surrounded with people who actually did give a damn. His brother was also a source of strength, the kid was never complaining about their father's distant attitude towards them and Varthur wanted to be the best big brother he could be, to make up for their mother's passing.. and their father's coldness. He remained silent as he washed the sweat drops away while his worries were casted aside as well for the moment. He was at the beach with cool friends, the rest could concern him later as soon as he arrived back home.

He stared downwards to check his stomach to find the pained red fading to his relief. I hope this clumsiness is just a phase I will grow out of.. he thought hopefully as he flicked the hair of his head back and forth under the running water in case some sand had been caught after the drag. Varthur didn't blame Kaoru in the least bit, those things just always happened to him. He always seemed to stuff up in one way or another.. maybe that's why Momo hated him so much. “I see, well, I’ll try to keep that in mind and pull you more gently. I just get really excited, that’s all.” The corners of Varthur's lips slowly ascended as he returned to more positive carefree thoughts. "Haha it's fine. Since you were so excited, maybe we'll play Frisbee tomorrow morning?" he suggested as he patted his stomach, not because of earlier's soreness but this time, remembering how Kei had punched him. He was glad they had talked things out. Varthur didn't really know the guy, but he didn't think he was bad at all. Realistically, Varthur was naive. He thought bad of no one for the most part, excluding his father... and Devone after what Akira had told him. With Momo? He wasn't so sure if he thought of her to the same length as a 'bad person'. He had tried hard to understand what was going on, why she had spat on his scarf and run away at the mere sight of him and why she refused to talk to him on every possible occasion. It was confusing but he had originally hated her for it, he had cared so much and even fallen for her at some point; graceful steps, words of kindness, a smile that could light up a room and the way she tried so hard to achieve her best in everything. It was frankly adorable.. or at least it was until she had shunned him. Now he found it all kind of annoying.

After that mess, he had almost isolated himself from girls. He never spoke to any unless spoken to and he made sure to keep his distance reasoning and humbling himself as; someone no one want to be with anyway. He had started to believe it and it showed in the way he acted. Of course being isolated, had also made him more bashful when something out of the blue happened. Even a small tap on the shoulder or a pat on the head could turn his skin red but he tried hard to brush it aside and not get his hopes up to think for a moment that he had a chance to be loved that way. If his own dad couldn't appreciate him, what more a woman? Surely, they wanted guys like Silas who could sweep them off their feet.. Varthur was more the type to accidentally step on feet during a dance. Akira was a different story. He had somehow managed to pull his act together, even if just a little to make sure she was alright. Heck, he had even done brave stupid things he never thought he would do, like the time he let her lean her head on his shoulder. Recalling that moment made Varthur blush to himself and face palm. He didn't even understand why he did that. He could have tried to cheer her up another way but it happened out of impulse. He was hardly thinking over it when he had done it. Just happened, automatically. Another reason for his 'shyness' was also what he told Akira.. he didn't want to hurt anybody knowing he'd probably be unable to live up to romantic expectations. He could easily see himself as the worst choice of companion in general.. hell, he couldn't even give a girl he fancied flowers.


“Yeah, I’d like to. Why? Are the parties usually lame or something?” Varthur chuckled nervously as he was about to finish up. "Well no, I don't think this one will be lame. We have a good bunch of seniors and juniors so it sounds promising. Let's just go and have fun!" he encouraged, remembering Kaoru hadn't met everyone yet and he was looking forward to helping his new friend fit right in. Some water had shockingly got into his left eye just as he was finishing up resulting in a bit of a shocked yell that shocked Kaoru too. “Don’t do that! I thought something was terribly wrong..!” Kaoru scolded making Varthur laugh a little. "Sorry dude." he apologised, rotating the shower knobs till the water stopped completely not wanting to waste water. He quickly changed into his clothes again, failing at finding an expected towel and walked back to where he last saw Kaoru in the men's room. "So should we go straight to the party or..?" he started questioning, messing up his hair as it was still wet. Not that he thought anyone would mind him being a little damp, they were at the beach after all.

Kaoru shuffled around kind of uneasily. She nods quickly when the other boy mentioned letting him play frisbee with him in the morning. Somethig he probably shouldn't have offered. "Sure! That would be awesome!" he replied quickly, fist pumping the air. His words came out almost incoherently as the older boy brightened the hyperactive younger one's spirits. He was far more bubbly than Akira when it came to his good mood, and so far, he never seemed to have a negative opinion on much of anything, even his time with Devone he held positively, as a joke. He wasn't mad at his mistreatment from his senior. Though, that was only because his secret was safe at this school. He was ecstatic to have a fresh start where no one knew him, or about his sexuality. Where no one knew he had a thing for both females and males. Last time didn't go so well, so he couldn't help but be more than cheerful that he already had a friend this quickly. It was overall in Kaoru's nature to smile, even shortly after something bad happened so it wasn't in him to really be able to relate to how Varthur was feeling. Kaoru very rarely was a sad person. He noticed that Varthur got a little quiet so he couldn't help but feel a bit concerned so he scratched his head. He was honestly trying to grasp why the other boy wasn't as psyched as he was about being at the beach, but he just couldn't understand it. Is he still in pain? Is he mad but just trying to be cool about it? I just don't get it.. "Is something bothering you? You're switching faster than a mood ring." Kaoru called to Varthur, then chewed on his bottom lip, "I mean, you don't have to tell me, I was just curious.. you seem a bit.. inconsistant."

"I see, I've only met Ice Queen (Devone) So I can't really say I know much about the crowd that's going to be there.." Kaoru rubbed the back of his head, "I was asleep on the bus. I didn't get to do any socializing at all.." Kaoru laughed nervously, feeling a bead of sweat slip down his forehead. He never really understood why he slept like a rock. He missed out on the chances of meeting people. So he really hadn't made friends at all before today. He was kind of just getting used to the school the first few days. He couldn't even remember who his senior was at the beginning. He had passed through the school days in a dazed state, barely functioning. New school, new people.. it was a lot to grasp. Especially with all the buildings! He wasn't used to a school of this calibur. Kaoru nodded absentmindedly, to be honest he wasn't even hearing Varthur. He wasn't trying to be rude, but he felt pretty overwhelmed with how well things were already progressing. His blue eyes fell onto the taller male as he returned in sight, ripping himself from his thoughts, messing up his own hair as if to collect the pieces of his thoughts together, "I don't mind going shirtless, we can go as we are if that's fine with you." Kaoru really didn't put much mind in his appearance, he wasn't very insecure about it, other than his short stature. He knew he wasn't unattractive. He was just.. fun sized.. "I think we're already late anyhow, we don't want to miss more than we have to." Kaoru tapped his chin, stretching and moving over to where Varthur was standing, "Though it's your call this time, you're the senior."

Kei Takeda

“I’m glad you came, it’s not very often I am granted the opportunity to socialise with a classmate for this long..” Devone was kind, at least at that moment in time she seemed very misunderstood and kind. She was a hard one to read though, he still didn't know her but once again that was what Silas planned, or so he assumed, whatever the game was being a group activity. “Sure, why not?” Luckily enough Devone seemed to want to stick around, answering quickly when he asked if she wanted to stay. It was good, he would get to know her better, and if she was truly wanting to let people see another side of her, assuming she had one which he believed she did, it would be the perfect place for her to do so. “Oh hi there Kei!” Kei was happily surprised to see Sera arrive back with Momo, turning and waving to his Junior after she spoke. "Hey Momo." He said cheerfully, glad that she had made it and also glad she was going to be joining them, although he was a bit skeptical she would approve of what they were doing. Sure he didn't know her too well yet but he knew her better than he did the other people at the party and she just didn't seem the type to enjoy a drinking game, if drinking at all. Momo was present which was all that mattered for the time being and so he turned to Bishop, he wanted to get to know the younger blonde better but he had just never really taken a chance to talk to him. The man had given him a nod so he nodded back, adding a "Hey Bishop" And a friendly look, glad that the man had joined them, they could all use to get to know him a bit better.

Bishop looked rather down when Kei looked closely though, Kei was hoping that it didn't stay that way, the night was meant for fun and Bishop needed to have as much fun as the rest of them. Thankfully Silas was back and the party was sure to kick up again with his influence. He began to get spirits back up, trying to cheer the sulking kid up and handing out beer as well. Kei took his with a nod and took a sip from it, it would be his third of the night and it was most likely only beginning, he just hoped he could keep himself from becoming too loopy so early into the festivities. "Right Everyone!" "Let's start then. Sit! Sit down-!" It would be easier to keep himself going when the game was about to start, Silas was getting them all to form a circle on the sand. Kei went ahead and sat down, not much minding who was next to him, just ready to get things started and get the games going. "For those of you who are as of now being initiated, we're playing Never Have I Ever." Kei had never played the game, he had never interacted with people much before, but he could guess the end purpose of the game, drinking. "Say a statement you have never done, and those in the circle who have done said deed must drink…" Yep, figured as much, a drinking game on the beach. That makes sense I suppose, besides, the game will definitely reveal a lot about each of us, I just hope there isn't anything to embarrassing I have to drink for. "Think of it as a team bonding exercise. A... "Get to know you."" That is exactly how I am going to think about this, team building, getting to know friends. It will be worthwhile to give away some facts about myself as long as I learn about the others as well. "Oh- and anyone caught cheating must chug a whole bottle..." Kei wasn't quite sure how one would cheat at such a game but he didn't bother asking, it would only serve to help some people be aware of how to cheat and that never helped.

"And since Bishop has a head start-.... He'll be starting!" Kei looked over to Silas and smiled, that was good thinking, help Bishop integrate himself in by going first, he just hoped it would work out alright. That was up to Bishop of course, whether or not he was going to really get into the game or just say something passive. Kei personally hoped he would start it off with a bang, he wanted Bishop to enjoy himself as well as everyone to become interested from the get go, a very interesting 'Never have I ever'. Well here goes, I really do hope nothing too embarrassing comes up. He thought one last time, waiting for the Junior (Bishop) to proceed and start the game, to begin the no doubt long and interesting night. Before that happened though they were joined by two more, Varthur being one of them "Hey guys!". "Well anyway, this is my new friend Kaoru!" Then he introduced a new guy, short but that meant nothing, Kei simply looked at them and wondered if they would join the game, not sure whether or not Varthur would drink and knowing nothing of the new guy.

"I see. I guess I should be worried as well, my roommate is kind of scatterbrained. She possibly burnt down the house while I was gone.." The blue haired boy rubbed his temples, a expression of worry and doubt for the girl's safety crossing his face for a few moments before he looked back up to Varthur, "But we'll be with our families again soon, so for now, let's have fun." His grin once again returned to him. I just don't like those kinds of thoughts. I am going to make this guy laugh. He needs it. He blinked at the senior and nodded, shrugging his shoulders, "You're not unattractive. I shouldn't have to 'give' you girls if you keep that shirt off." He grinned at Varthur, " Girls really don't pay too much attention, and you're really skinny.." he poked at Varthur's sides for a moment, "You're going to attract at least one girl's eyes tonight." Kaoru nodded, his eyes determined at the senior. He wasn't really sure, but in his opinion Varthur wasn't unattractive, he was awkward in a kind of cute way. There had to be a girl at this school who liked that about him. It was impossible. There is just too many people for a girl to not see what a good guy he is.. I mean, he's been a good sport with me. Kaoru laughed a bit, following him out, "Heck yeah, let's do this." Kaoru chimed in an excited tone, "No worries. Everyone drinks at these kind of parties right. No one will be looking too cool." Kaoru crossed his arms behind his head as they made their way along, trying his best to pay attention and reply to Varthur, but had they not been walking, he'd of been bouncing with excitement. Girls,Girls,Drinking,Girls. I love highschool!

Kaoru blinked at all the people, biting his bottom lip as he felt a nervousness in his stomach. All of the guys were taller than him, a few girls here and there were shorter, for example, the pixie cut brunette who confused the hell out of him. Is she trying to be a guy? why would she want to? Girls have it so much easier. It kind of irritated him that a girl wouldn't appreciate being a girl. As much as he wanted to, he didn't really say anything about it. I don't know her.. Kaoru reach to steady Varthur, but he played it off as if he was merely patting the tall Senior's back, "Nice to meet you everyone.." He waved with his other hand, sweating a bit, but overall playing off his nervousness. I don't know any of these people.. then his eyes laid on her. He smirked a bit when he saw the girl. Ice Queen! (Devone) This'll be good, "I'm so glad you're here Ice Queen, now I know more than one person. How're you holding that bottle without freezing the beer inside it solid?" He teased lightly, though it was obvious he was merely taunting her, even if his statements were true. He sat down near Varthur, but not awkwardly close, "Kaoru Inoue, Junior.." he smiled sheepishly, a light blush across his cheeks as he properly introduced himself to the group. He blinked when he noticed two tall blonde males. Blondes in Japan? One looked rather naive and oblivious (Bishop), while the other looked...rather intimidating and overly-confident (Silas). Somehow this seems like it's going to end badly..

He noticed a tall brunette gazing over at him, raising a hand to wave at him (Kei), "Uhm. Hi." He laughed a bit awkwardly. What is he staring for? Is it because I'm so short? He shook it off, trying to not think on it, "Can we play too? We met a few obstacles so we were a bit late.."

Kaoru snickered genuinely, “That was a good one, Ice Queen. I guess you have a point.” He winked back. He found it fascinating that she could shoot comebacks at him so swiftly. She’s.. enjoyable. Kaoru thought to himself, chuckling a bit. She’s going to be one of the numerous entertaining things about this new school. He grinned innocently to the lengthy black haired girl (Devone), his eyes lighting up as he remembered something, possibly a challenge. “I never caught your name.” he reminded her, “Can I know now?” He tilted his head lop-sided abruptly, big sapphire eyes gazing over at her, anticipating her reaction. He was really good at exploiting his boyish appearance. He was used to using his young exterior on girls to break the ice. She seems to have her mind on something, does our little frozen rose (Devone) have some troubles as well? “What’s so interesting about the moon? The party is down here.” He chimed in a taunting voice.

Koaru blinked at the look (Silas) was giving him, fighting off the urge to scowl and ask him what his problem I know exactly what you’re thinking.. His eyes narrowed as he stared at the fire. Just because you’re enormous doesn’t mean you're making me nervous. He let out an extended sigh, closing his eyes for a moment. When he opened them he was back to fun-loving, hyper Kaoru. He had a problem with guys like (Silas). He already came across to him as confident, attractive, tall, and popular. He didn’t play well with guys like him. It felt like a competition already and to beat it all? He didn’t even catch the other guy’s name yet! Blondie, I’m not sure if I like you. He seemed to have a connection with Varthur, because he sent him a smile that somewhat resembled friendliness. I guess you could call it that.. I'm not so good at reading other guys. Kaoru moved his thoughts around to the rest of the group. His eyes halted for a moment when he caught a glimpse of pink. He looked over her, but tried to hide his disappointment. He didn't want to offend her after all. She was a cute pink haired girl (Momo) that resembled the one he met earlier, but it definitely wasn’t the same girl.(Miami) This one seemed much more shy and sweet. It kind of depressed him in a way, but he turned his attention to the cocky guy (Silas) again. (Bishop) Ah.. so it’s started already. He knew that the overconfident blonde was still giving him the stare down, but he overall ignored him. You’re not going to intimidate me, I know you're trying to express some sort of silly Alpha male dominance because you're a senior.. He smirked a bit to acknowledge that he could see him looking through his peripheral vision. He rolled his eyes as the blonde (Silas) ignored his question. Like that is going to hurt my feelings or gain an amusing reaction for you. Kaoru felt his lips twitch into a smile as he shook his head. Gotta do better than that. Are you the one feeling intimidated, or do I just interest you because I’m practically the shiny new toy in the third grade classroom? He wasn't exactly sure. This guy is like an enigma, or a rubix cube. His eyebrows raised at something the blonde (Silas) said, something he also agreed with. Hell yeah the girls can take off their shirts. His eyes shifted to the slightly shorter blonde (Bishop) Hmm.. he doesn’t look as sure of himself. Interesting. Total opposite ends of the spectrum these two are.

Kaoru blinked when the boy said his Never have I ever. What the hell does that mean? Is this some sort of code? He took a beer and cracked the lid off. He had never drunk a drop before now so he was kind of tentative about playing this game, but he took a swig hastily. He didn’t want anyone to realize his uncertainty. Immediately he felt the urge to wrinkle his nose. This is awful! Why are they drinking this crap!? He kept his facial expression as blank and calm as he could manage, but it was certainly clear on his face he was a first time drinker the instant he got a good taste of the beer. What is with this guy.. was it a joke I’ve not been clued in on? He looked around, face still confused. Did everyone else understand? He could help but find his mind wondering what the next question would be. Crap. I don't want to embarrass myself!! Am I going to turn out to be a lightweight drinker? His attention snapped to the slightly shorter blonde when the taller one (Silas) associated a name with the face unknowingly for Kaoru. So.. the shorter blonde's name is Bishop..
