As to be expected from the White Heir of the Powerful Shirokami Family, Aeon has an appealing and promising reputation. He is well-known for his genius intellect, remarkable athletic capabilities often shown in Kendo, and noted to be extremely talented as well. There was also no question of his demeanor as he perfectly depicts a calm and sophisticated individual, despite his youth. Though, at times, this bearing of his comes out to others as him being distant and someone who lives above the clouds. It could relate to the hint of coldness in his interactions where he also does not give his personal opinions to keep it purely business and professional. This is a result of his desire to be detached creating his mien of borderline politeness and apathetic demeanor towards all without discrimination. It does keep the conversations short as he does not like socializing but, would do so if it is about business dealings or needed for certain situations. He simply addresses questions directed at him and if not he would slip away to some unknown place. That is why he is known as a no-nonsense person and care little for idle or small talk. He would rather remain silent if presented with such dialogues. Furthermore, his indifferent mask would not be pierced of any comments or news brought to him even how dire it could be, resulting an unnerving calm which displaces people in front of him.

Despite such indifference and cold professionalism, Aeon has indeed shown compassion towards people whether this is due to actual concern or out of pride is not known. But without doubt, his actions tethers strictly to his moral code and fairness. He is also an honest person and without circumventing around details makes his words concise, factual, and untainted of malice providing him a graceful and dignified presence. This also applies when he speaks of sweet and mushy things as described by certain women in his life with a straight face, not a hint of desire or dishonesty. That at times, he is mistaken to be a Casanova, which is completely untrue. He also has a great sense of duty which reflects in his decisions and stubbornness. Unlike others who were born into status, he does gain respect or recognition as default. He rightly gains it which makes people admire him for. Another thing to admire him for is the fact he had never spoken a lie. Although, he does keep secrets but instead of outright denying it, he would keep quiet or avoid the topic. He also does not mind being blamed for things even terrible ones even most of times, he has no hand in it. For him, it is a given and takes all of the consequences without flinching. But one should expect from this calm man, a frightening side which only few had witnessed whom never wanted to see or to experience it ever. After all, there is a saying that still water runs deep. He does have great skill in controlling his emotions but, it also meant that his feelings are intimately buried inside that burns like the sun of let out.

Aeon has never been vague about what he likes and dislikes. It is not in his nature to linger about it or even hide such matters. He is candid about it though most people see it as a ploy or a means to confuse them which depicts him as a complicated and complex person. That is not true in the slightest as he is rather basic. Shall we start by enumerating first the things that would garner his favorable eye?

Noted to be a serious person, but in fact Aeon enjoys
jokes whether terrible or good ones. The reason behind it would be his mother who enjoys it and as years go by, he had associated it with happiness. Another thing related to his feeling of happiness is music. Naturally, it curries his favor. When it comes to relaxation, classical or modern songs can be heard playing around him. Now when he is not busy, he indulges himself in playing chess either by himself or with an opponent, usually none. He also spends time by reading books from his library encompassing a massive collection or do some Bonsai. At times, he also immerses himself in training the sword, bow, or simple physical exercises. It is best to accompany such activities with a serving of something spicy for snacks and milk.

Now as for the things, that would cause his ire.

The one that holds the highest spot would be
defeat. Aeon had never tasted that in his life but, he had seen what it could do and would not allow that to happen to himself. It shall not touch him. He is also displeased with people who are unruly and arrogant as they are the ones who are the sources of troublesome matters which he is opted to clean up. There is also the issue of bullying. It is unbecoming and goes against his moral code and sense of fairness. Another cause of distress is when he sees people crying. It is probably why he tends to avoid such situations, making it a rule of his never to make anyone cry. Most notably, he dislikes being forced or controlled in his life or decisions. This would be best avoided unless one wants to receive a physical and emotional beating from him.

What had been stated above are some of the landmines when interacting with Aeon. There are still more tidbits in both areas of likes and dislikes but for now, the rest are better discovered through interacting with him. One should not worry too much, at the end, he is a simple man unconsciously raised by the people with their illusions and assumptions.

The Prince of course have notable skills. One of them is considered odd for someone like him. It is sewing and knitting of stuffed animals, hand-made sweaters, and so on. Aeon learned of it out of necessity because of his mother's unskillful hands in such endeavor. Now, he sews for his little brother, Brinx. The next one is both inherent and only known by a few. That is his angelic voice. In relation to his voice, it is rather useful due to him being linguistic. He is fluent with 8 different languages that everyone would recognize his flawless accent. At the moment, he is learning another one. It is easy for him to do so since he has a perfect memory making him remember all perfectly even if he does not want to. This serves him well in employing tactics on any form of negotiations. Other than him being a wonderful heir for the Shirokami, he is renowned publicly for being a Kendo Master. Many had seek to challenge him and to study under him. He is the only one who had earned the rank 8-dan despite not of age for it. That is how skillful he is and there are rumors he would be awarded Kendoka by next year. In this field, he is known as Aeon Shirokami adding prominence unintentionally for the White Heir.

There are also his
foibles. Aeon is not perfect even if that is how he appears to most. Before, he was a warm and sociable child, but when he lost his mother. This child had chosen to be a loner. It made him detest crowds or socializing. As such, he only tolerates them on necessity. His stepsister would advise him to change that. However, he is stubborn. A trait which his father had implied to be inherited from his mother. It was said to be a charming point, but not with him, matched with his rebellious streak. This greatly made him incorrigible and a headache especially to his Father who demands him to obey. However, he knew well-enough that he cannot go against his father openly. As such, he developed a mask to protect himself and what he deemed important.

What is the purpose of wearing a mask? It is to hide his
secrets. One of them is related to his attendance to Airdalen Academy. He had opted to use his mother's maiden name as his surname, hiding his identity as a Shirokami in order to attain normalcy. The status, recognition, and popularity do not interest him at the very least. Moreover, he does not want to be attached with his Father and Step Mother's reputation. The only ones who knew of his true lineage are the Principal and his Childhood Friend. Another is of his mother, he has in his possession a secret album. It contains pictures of him when he was younger dressed up as girl. Her mother wanted a daughter so, he was the substitute for it regrettably. He currently has deal with his Father that determined all of his actions and his future.

Aeon is the only child of Akihiko and Sophia Shirokami. However, his mother died in a traffic accident leaving him with his father. Since then, he had been raised with a strict hand to become a fitting heir to prove he is capable despite his disadvantage which is French blood of his mother. The other members of the Shirokami had always been against his mother because of her foreign blood. After all, they are a clan who took pride of being pure descendants of the Japanese Emperor. Basically, he was thrown to the dogs and his Father had believed it to be best for his son to be baptized through fire. It was then he knew that the one who carried the discrimination and protected him from it all was his mother giving him a delightful childhood. But when she died, everything changed and his relationship with his father became more distant. He then learned to hide his emotions and never to get attached. It makes everything easier. When his father remarried, he really did not care but when his brother was born. He decided not to let Brinx undergo what he went through. Usually, his father uses Brinx as a negotiation tool to make him listen. Currently, he is attending Airdalen at his own choice. Of course, there are certain conditions for him to attend in the way he preferred it and so, he will uphold that bargain in his own way.

The estranged father of Aeon who is also the Leader of the Shirokami Clan holding the Ownership, Chairman of the Board of Directors and the CEO position of the largest and strongest Conglomerate, Shirokami. It reigns globally and unopposed in all powerful industries and profitable business sectors. To prove that fact, he is consistently the number one of the top 5 billionaires including the most powerful and influential families of the world by Forbes. There is also the consistent nominations as businessman and people of the year by Time. With esteemed reputation, he had been dubbed the Business King. That is why it is understandable why he mostly does not have time for his family and personal life. He also has limited interactions with his sons and even when he does, it is all about business. So, it was no surprise why he is not seen in an adoring and beloved light. But, it was not always like this. When Sophia was still alive, he was a family man. But with her death, everything changed not only his relationship with his son, Aeon, but also himself. His main residence is the Family's Main house in Tokyo but he is rarely at home as he tends to be overseas a lot due to business.

⌈Everyday I'm a star in the city, walk the streets like a wanted man, give it up.βŒ‹Image

The beloved mother of Aeon and Akihiko's First Wife. Sophia is a full-blooded French and was born in France. She only decided to live in Japan when her maternal grandmother who raised her had passed away. There she worked as an author who was fascinated with Shakespeare and Beethoven. She was able to publish some famous novels which eventually became precious objects to her husband and son. According to Akihiko and Aeon, she was a sweet and warm person who was stubbornly carefree and a reckless dreamer. She was also a remarkable singer which Akihiko described as the voice of the angels which was inherited by her son. Aeon was very close to her and said to be the only one capable of changing Akihiko's mind. There was no doubt, she is a strong person as she endured the hardship marrying into the traditional Shirokami Clan along with the criticisms of her status and bloodline. She also protected Akihiko from harsh commentaries about her. Despite that, she was happy. But, that was cut short on Aeon's 6th birthday, she was caught in a traffic accident. Her grave as of today is always filled by Juliet Roses, her favorite, all-year which is ordered by Akihiko.

The famous international actress who is both Aeon's Step Mother and Akihiko's Second Wife. Michiru was actually Akihiko's fiancΓ©e, but it was broken when he met Sophia. There was no animosity as she was also in-love with another who she married despite the objections of her parents. But, it ended in a divorce because of him cheating on her. She had a daughter with him, Aiko who she won custody over. It was then she ventured into entertainment becoming an actress-model. Then, fate happened. She met Akihiko again during a party, a year after Sophia's death. They hit it off and started dating. But, their affair is like a business deal with sexual benefit. After a year of dating, they married, and she became Aeon's stepmother. But, their relationship is of formality. She does not despise Aeon rather, she is uncertain how to act around him. This did not change even when she gave birth to Aeon's half brother, Brinx. Her current residence is at Los Angeles being an internationally acclaimed actress and is currently filming a Hollywood movie. She usually invites Brinx and Aiko over when she has time for them. As for Aeon, he would always decline the offer.

⌈Kinda woman who wants you, but don't need you, she got her own thing.βŒ‹Image

The daughter of Michiru, stepdaughter to Akihiko, stepsister to Aeon and Brinx's half sister. She had been offered to become a Shirokami legally. But, she respectfully declined as she wants to remain as a Hirakawa despite the circumstances between her parents. She is a year older than Aeon and does not get along well with him. Unlike her mother, she does not tolerate Aeon's standoffish dealings and would reprimand Aeon about it. Their conversation though has the tendency to became heated debates or arguments since their opinions do conflict. She does not seek his approval of being family, but she seemed to seek his recognition. To that end, she would at times tease Aeon being gay since he does not respond to her seduction ploys. But, Aeon would efficiently rebut leaving her speechless. There are hints that she likes Aeon romantically, whether he knows or not, he does not act differently. Aiko's main residence is the Shirokami Main House. She was also against when Aeon decided to move out, but he won that argument. She is already attending University of Tokyo, taking medicine and also works part-time as a runaway model.

The Half brother of Aeon who is Akihiko and Michiru's son and Aiko's little half-brother as well. Brinx idolizes his older brother, Aeon more than anyone else. He even copies the way Aeon acts, talks, and wears clothes similar to his older brother. It is one of the reasons Aiko harbors envy towards Aeon even if she was the one who is mostly around their little brother. Moreover, Brinx is one of the exceptions from Aeon's coldness and formality. This is probably why Akihiko decided to raise Brinx with strictness. But, Aeon protected his little brother from this in his own way to ensure Brinx would have a normal and a fun childhood. Brinx is unaware of the internal matters of using him to replace Aeon as Heir. Aeon is aware of it, but still cares for Brinx and ensures that his little brother would not be a part of this matter or be aware of it. He does not want Brinx to be burdened with the title of being a Shirokami. Brinx had stayed with his mother at LA during the summer and is returning to Japan for Christmas. He is staying at the Shirokami Main House with Aiko. It is also said he would be finally attending school as he is home-schooled before.

The attendant of Aeon who is to the future Head Butler of Shirokami House. Rando is of the Mori family who had been serving the Shirokami family since long ago. They are the shield and dagger of the powerful Shirokami. That is why when Aeon became the Heir, Rando became his attendant. He is the same age as Aeon and grew up with him. One of his very notable traits is his bright red hair and red-violet eyes. Added to that, he is also quite handsome. He did say he should be in order to stand by Aeon's side. This statement does show his great attachment and loyalty to Aeon despite the latter's annoyance. There are also times that Rando could be overly protective and affectionate which causes numerous problems. Still, Rando is the closest thing that anyone could consider Aeon's friend. This self-proclaimed number one servant does truly see Aeon as being the only one worthy of being the heir of the Shirokami. Rando's father is the Head Butler and Attendant to Akihiko. His relationship with his father is strained like with Aeon's. As of now, Rando is at the Main House and visits Aeon during the weekends or urgent matters.

"It is yet another beginning, but whether it would change anything. I am not tempted to know or to care."


Eyes of gray blue were coldly narrowed into such a dangerous angle as the sound of wood colliding with another echoed with the giant hall resembling that of a dojo. It actually was and served as the training room for the infamous Sword Genius, Aeon Shirokami, but at this moment, he is donning the name Aeon Belrose to gain anonymity. He continued hacking at the practice dummy with his bokken. This has been his everyday morning ritual, a form of release and at the same time, it does provide him a considerable early workout. As the sweat cascaded down his body, he continued his sword strokes with such concentration. He was wearing a keikogi and hakama with his hair neatly tied in a ponytail.

It might be odd seeing someone of his features in a traditional Japanese garment, but he does look exceptionally good in it. The foreignness of his features complements the simple garb which fitted him without any errors. This also applied to his skillful handling of the bokken where a simple glint in his eyes dictated a horizontal slash as it hit the target at the same exact moment an alarm echoed throughout the room. He took a step back as the head of the wooden dummy rolled across the floor which indicated the strength he could manage with such precision. He ignored it as he approached a bench where a towel waited for him. His 2,000 slashing strikes had now been done on time. The alarm signified him not to to get engrossed in his practice as he does have other matters to attend to. He wiped the sweat from his face and body before grabbing a water bottle nearby to have a drink. Even then, it was elegantly done.

He exited the hall and returned to his room which was much larger than the previous one he was in. It was a given that he does live by himself and only allow his personal butler, Rando, to come during weekends to do chores. Other than that, he is alone and he was completely at ease by that notion. Here, he could be left in peace and without the eyes of those overbearing and annoying expectations being placed on him. It was more so as they coined him as a half-breed, a mongrel due to half of his ancestry being French. In reality, he could care less. However, he has his brother to think of and so; he will play his part in this grand scheme of things for now and bids his time as always.

For now, he entered his bathroom to take a shower and to prepare himself for the day. Airdalen had informed him beforehand that classes for them would start a day earlier due to a program being lunched in lieu of the incoming freshmen. He was of course involved in it and he has no objections. After a few minutes, he was out of his bathroom and was now donned with his uniform's white shirt and black pants. His platinum blonde hair was still wet as he uses the towel to dry it as he walked towards the couch, there was portion of his room presented as a living room in which he took a seat and opened his laptop. There were some mergers that he needed to review before sending it back to his father. They were only sent to him last night while he was sleeping. He had only known when he saw the notification on his phone when he woke up. His father never does give him a room to breathe, but he welcomes the challenge.

Other than that, he does still have some homework needed to be done. He had placed it at the bottom of his list for unlike the rest of the students who enjoyed their summer because of vacation. The summer days for him were rudimentary term for setting up business deals and learning the inner and outer workings of the various businesses they handle. He had been busier than ever since then and only has a partial of time to do it now. In any case, he began to read the documents on his laptop and began to type his notes at real time while taking a bite of his prepared meal, a sandwich and green tea. Soon enough, he was done with his business review and sent it back. If there was any other thing, his father would inform him one way or another.

Setting that aside, he grabbed hold of his school work and nonchalantly flipped through the pages. There was no need for him to read it as they were remembered perfectly by his brain whether he liked it or not. Opening his notebook, he began to finish the needed homework on time as his phone issued an alarm indicating that he should be preparing himself to leave for school.

Gathering his things on the table, Aeon rested himself for a while as he closed his eyes briefly and leisurely placed his hand on his cheek. There was a small sigh escaping his lips and he remained still for a while. Silence passed like that and soon enough, he opened his eyes and stood from his seat. He grabbed his things and went to his closet to grab his jacket. At that time, his hair was already dry as he placed final adjustments to his current appearance. There was nothing out of place as he then left his room and then exited the condominium where he lives in. His was located at the top floor and has its own personal elevator only used by him and his guests. He entered and after a while found himself at the building's lobby where the staff greeted him with such pleasantries while most of the female staff swooned at him with professionalism, if that was possible.

"Good morning, Belrose-san. Shall I prepare the car?" The manager approached him with such a wonderful smile and impeccable politeness. His eyes landed on the older male but, his face never betrayed anything as it maintained its cold and calm appearance. "Good morning, Kusaribe-san. No, I shall walk" The manager conceded without resistance. These have been normal occurrences as Aeon would at times like taking walks on his own. It was not much of a toil as the building itself was not far from Airdalen, a collective amount of 10 minutes is needed to arrive there. "Understood, please have a good day at school, Sir." He gave a nod as his answer before proceeding to the doors. There was still time and he liked watching the blooming cherry blossoms that he would walk alongside with.

Like so, he took his time while some of the people passing by could not help but notice him. His pale features contrasted with his Airdalen Uniform and even more so as the fluttering pink petals seemingly swirled around him, creating a rather angelic visage. Most would even dare concede that he might be a girl for such beauty, but his current apparel would dissuade such assumptions. As for the one catching everyone's attention, he was ignoring it either by will or not. His attention was divided by admiring the pink blossoms and his destination which he soon arrived in. The guard instantly recognized him, yet had a questionable look. It was probably due to him arriving by foot. He simply presented his ID as the guard greeted him with more respect than the others. Aeon just has that presence the naturally elicits such respect.

As he entered the grounds, he could see that there are already other students present. Today, the school was only opened for the Seniors and the incoming freshmen, or the so-called Juniors. This is all in relation for a special program. Thus, there were not much people here besides the staff and teachers. It was a welcomed peace as he would not have those people that one of his teachers had generously labeled as fans. His eyes scanned across the present students. There were faces he knew of like that of Kitogawa, Hakushiro, and Giou. Others? He does not know them which makes them the new students. In any case, he did not approach anyone and simply situated himself in one of the benches far from the others.

Aeon would like to enjoy the morning breeze and the cherry blossoms lining the benches on his own. And such, he gazed at them and somehow, his face had a slight change. It looked peaceful and one could really see why he had been called or described as an Angel at many points.

BISHOP TRANDER


Image


Bishop was dead asleep in bed. His chest rose and fell calmly as he snoozed in his bed, which would be interrupted by a blaring alarm suddenly going off. He groaned and rolled over smacking the snooze button and laid there for a second. Time would stand still until he suddenly jumped up in bed with a huge smile. "It's time for school!!" Normally he wasn't this thrilled to be at school, but this was the first day in an all new experience for the young teenager. He hopped out of bed and rushed out of his room to go get a shower. "Bishop~? It's good that you're up honey, breakfast is almost ready. Everyone is going to eat together on skype so make sure you have your uniform on. Your father wants to see it." His mother, Kimiko called up to him from the kitchen having heard her excited son bounce around upstairs. "Ok mom!" "What did we say about your Japanese?" Bishop sighed leaning out of the bathroom door now shirtless to shout down the stairs. "I can't get better if I never try." Japanese was his second language, he's been learning it since he was young but still had to fine tune some things here and there. He had a dictionary incase he ran into some words that he's never heard of before. But his reading and writing skills were proficient for a boy his age, the translations however simply slowed his progress down. He hopped in the shower liking his water extra hot as he washed himself. The young freshmen closed his eyes imagining himself swimming in a pool this warm, with the current song playing on the stereo. If he wasn't talking, Bishop was almost always listening to music of some kind.

Clean and refreshed Bishop walked from the bathroom to his room and eyed up his new uniform. "I can't beleive I'm going to a school that requires uniforms. That's kinda rare in the states." He began to get dressed pushing the button on his iPhone to change to the next song and smiled as his favorite band Coldplay began to play. He looked in the mirror as he got dressed the uniform fitting perfectly. In reality his father insisted on getting it a size bigger since they planned on him growing, fortunately his mother was skilled with a needle and didn't want her son to go to school wearing a baggy uniform. So it would appear as if he had a minor tailor job to his suit complimenting his physique in every fashionable way possible. <This is it! My first time going to a school for longer than a year. High school too! I wonder if I'll be popular.> He couldn't help but thing that as he grabbed his backpack, a very American styled backpack and headed down stairs. "Hey mom! What's for breakfast?" [color=BF00BF]"Why don't you come down and see! I'm sure you can smell it."[/color] Bishop grinned from ear to ear thinking of his mom's amazing cooking. He dashed into the kitchen and dropped his backpack seeing the spread that was laid out. Without a word he moved to the dining table and sat down while his mother finished some last things. "Now don't worry about the dishes honey. You have more important things to worry about." She patted his head making the young blonde blush and nod.

"Hey there sport! Lookin snazzy! You excited for school?" Bishop had a piece of toast dangling from his mouth when he noticed the computer monitor set on the table. On it was his father, dressed in the blue, grey and black colored Navy fatigues. The man's chiseled features beamed back at his son, who took a sip of a coffee mug that read 'EOD, If I start running, try and keep up' and had a tray of food in front of him as well. Though it didn't look nearlt as appetizing as what was in front of Bishop. "Yeah! I'm stoked! But mostly hungry." He took a big bite of his eggs and reached for a few pieces of bacon then drank some orange juice. His father laughed and took a sip of his coffe and ate what looked like french toast.

"I see you're speaking in Japanese like you're suppose to as well. Good! You're never going to find a pretty, rich girlfriend if you can't woo her with your words." His father smirked happily, but Bishop couched nearly choking on his food. "D-Dad! Why do you keep saying that?" He blushed heavily feeling his ears get hot, as he lowered his fork for a moment looking at the computer screen. Ever since they got the news he was getting a scholarship to Airdalen they were talking about how they were so excited for him to meet a nice rich girl, to buy all their worries away. They were only half-joking of course. "Oh, don't you know sweetie? This is a private school you're going to. A lot of the elite apply for this academy and some even get denied. You're awful lucky." "Well I knew that! But... Why do you gotta make a big deal about it? Especially a rich girl?" "Or boy...." His mother added in quietly and sipped her milk as if nothing was said.. Alex grinned catching it, but their son was completely oblivious jsut chowing down. "We're you're parents son! we, just want what's best for you. Now go and eat your breakfast. Nobody wants you to be hungry again." Bishop nodded and continued to eat. His parents just watched in awe, with small smiles on their face seeing their young boy growing up to one day be a man.

When breakfast was over, Bishop and his mother said their goodbyes to Alex his father and went out to their small car to head to school. Coincidentally his houses wasn't very far away from Airdalen, it was a little over 7 blocks deffinitely within walking distance but biking would be preferred. "Music for the road? Bishop smiled and nodded. "Of course!" Kimiko turned on the radio and started to play some J-Pop music his mother dancing the drivers seat like a fool. <Oh no... What have I done.> This was part of the reason why he tended to study at his grandmother's house. His mom was a busy body, in the sense that she was always doing something whether it was work or something fun for herself. As they drove along, he listened to the music but tried to not make any eye contact with pedestrians and other drivers seeing the lovely purple haired woman dancing in the drivers seat and singing lyrics of songs unashamedly. It was finally time that they arrived at school, Kimiko pulling up directly in front of the gate having missed the impeccable prince's subtle entrance (Aeon)

"Alright, thanks mom!" his mother looked to him and smiled, reaching out to stroke his blonde hair. "I'm so proud of you honey! I'm so excited that you get to go to a wonderful school like this, and get to meet new friends. I'm sure you'll do great." Bishop blushed sheepishly and twiddled with his bag some. "T-Thanks mom. But I gotta go, don't want people to stare at me." She giggled to herself drawing her hand back. "Oh my, my young man is already too cool for her mother. I understand. Now go! And find a cute girl!" "MOM~!"

Bishop hopped out of his car and put both straps over his shoulders. He mentally prepared himself for the journey he was about to embark on and smiled confidently. There was a small fire in his eyes as he looked to the awaiting gate guard who had a knowing smirk of his own. He stepped forward only to freeze hearing his mom honk the car horn. "GOODBYE SWEETIE~! HAVE A GOOD FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL~ MOMMY LOVES YOU~!" His mother blew a kiss and giggled driving off seeing her son's reaction. She was very loud and was bound to grab at least someone's attention. Bishop froze in fear and turned a deep red. "S-She.... She did that on purpose!!" <Why!? Why me!? Why now!? That is NOT how you start being cool in high school! Ugh! I'm gonna kill her!> He turned around seeing the gate guard sling more and chuckling to himself. Bishop lowered his head and walked inside.

"Welcome to Airdalen. The guard politely commented and nodded knowingly. Bishop simply closed his eyes and waved politely somewhat forgetting his Japanese customs. He would turn to see the expanse of the campus and looked on int awe. "Sugoi...." He walked somewhat aimlessly around until he noticed that some people were already here. He had a wary eye seeing if people were staring at him. He looked very convincingly like a lost puppy, being a freshmen at his school and was all by himself now in the center of the courtyard. He looked around seeing a pretty blonde girl (Arietta). That struck a chord with Bishop, seeing blonde's in this country was rare and always something to talk about with his peers donning the vibrant gold locks. He would make a mental note of the girl and nodded to himself. He barely noticed a male who seemed less than conscious (Ryou) sitting next to the blonde girl which made him curious. There would be time to learn more about the people around him in the future. Turning around he noticed another boy-girl pair on a bench sitting together but not talking (Rhys and Shiori). He could get a decent idea of who was in what grade, but his ability to read people wasn't the best being somewhat socially inexperienced.

<Ok.... Don't linger too long. Don't want to look weird.> He spied the third group of people, which appeared to be a very short girl with blakc hair (Mai) talking to another boy (Akira). Not wanting to force himself into a conversation he decided to go off to the side and sat by himself in front of a tree on a bench. He never noticed that a dark haired girl (Yuuki) was behind him under the tree however. To pass the time Bishop pulled out a small speaker and synced it to his iPhone deciding to play a favorite song. He wasn't meaning to disturb anyone, he just wanted some nice relaxing music to start his day as he sat on the bench and minded his own business. As the soft harmonies of the string instruments, coupled with the sounds of a guitar played in everse and the piano Bishop bobbed his head with the music letting out a content sigh. <Music is always a good ice breaker! Maybe someone will like this band too.> He smiled to himself and leaned back against the bench looking up at the tree above him happily.

It was a wonderful morning as the Pink Princess took a large breath to let the scents of the blooming flowers fill her. "The gardens look very lively today. All of them are blooming so beautifully." She noted with such an adoring smile on her face and then looked at a bouncing pink ball or what could be describe a pink metallic ball by her side. "Don't you think so, Clio?". The odd object seemingly began to flap what could be described as ears in a rapid manner and then answering in its cute robotic voice. "Yes it does! Clio!". She lightly laughed at that response. "You are so cute, Clio. Volans should make more of you." She stated not in humor but as an excited fact. This Clio is actually a mechanical pet invented by his younger brother, Volans. It was a gift for her 16th birthday.

"Elle, the car is ready." She turned around to face her ever loyal guardian, Hotaru with a bright smile. "Okay!" She happily answered because she was really excited to be returning to school which was Airdalen. She looked back at Clio. "Let's go. I can't wait to see everyone." In response, Clio bounced but this time landing on Cassiopeia's open hands. She caught it and nodded happily. "Aye aye Captain!" Hotaru looked at the toy as she would describe it and shook her head. It was a simple robot which has a limited vocabulary, but can serve as a communication device or what anyone would call a phone.

"Elle, make sure Clio behaves." Cassiopeia nodded with assurance. "Of course! Clio is a good boy, aren't you?" Clio responded by flapping its wings and speaking. "Clio good boy!" Hotaru released a soft sigh. "All right, lets' go." She then led the way to the car waiting outside as Cassiopeia followed her. It didn't take that long before they were on the road. The Villa that Cassiopeia was staying in was a bit far from the Argyris, but the distance is not something that would be called a burden or hard. This wasn't viewed by Cassiopeia like that, instead, she just decided to wake up a bit early, so she won't be late.

This became a routine with her and she liked it. They do say that if you want or like something, then you must do everything you can. She's like that. She likes going to school and it was more fun than she had ever imagined. "I've heard you'll be participating in the Senior-Junior Program." Cassiopeia who was looking out the window suddenly looked at Hotaru. "Yup, I'm going to have a freshman partner. I'm really excited!" Hotaru smiled at the enthusiasm of her charge. It was a good thing, but she would also have to remind her. "That's good, but don't force yourself, you understand?" Cassiopeia looked at Hotaru warmly as she knew that her guardian was worried about her. "I won't." Hotaru wasn't thoroughly satisfied with it. "Okay, but I''ll ask Master Aeon to look out for you." Cassiopeia pouted a bit at that. She knew there are times she could be a handful but, it's not like she's a trouble magnet or something. "Why does it sound you don't trust me on my own?"

Hotaru sighed at this while shrugging her shoulder "I know you well enough. " Cassiopeia still had a pout before releasing a big sigh. "I understand..." The conversation between her and Hotaru stopped as the car also stopped as well. Cassiopeia looked out the window and saw the illustrious academy of Airdalen. Hotaru went out first as the door to his side was opened and she was escorted outside. "Thank you very much, Hotaru." The older girl smiled gently and then patted Cassiopeia's head. ""It's my pleasure. This was followed up by a series of It's my pleasure as Clio spoke who was now bouncing again beside Cassiopeia who can't help but laugh just a bit. Hotaru shook his head and then looked at the gates where the guard instantly noticed them and knew who they were.

She presented her ID and the guard happily greeted them. "Good morning Argyris-sama." Cassiopeia answered back as she appreciated the guard's happy energy. "Good morning, Hoshino-san." She said with a cheerful smile. The guard was obviously delighted as there was a very faint blush. Hotaru looked on at this scene. It was nothing new as her ward was a beauty and a head-turner at that because of her feature which is her pink hair. She coughed a bit to remind the guard she was still there as the security staff embarrassingly looked away. She then addressed Cassiopeia. "I'll be picking you up later. Have fun, but be safe always." Cassiopeia nodded in agreement. "See you later, Hotaru!"

Cassiopeia then entered the school grounds with an extra skip to her steps. The school was rather quiet than before which was understandable. The only ones present are the teacher, staff, seniors and the new incoming students. Well, she wasn't bothered by that, instead she was very excited to meet her freshman partner. She had a wonderful smile on her face as she looked around. She didn't notice the stares and looks going towards her way by the other students and some of the staff. It was not that easy to ignore her presence as she has a rather striking appearance both odd, yet incredibly beautiful on her. She was peculiar yet very nice to the eyes. It also adds to those who are well-acquainted with the who is who in the world of the upper echelons might have to deduce her background just by her looks which is a signature trait for a very prominent family who is both rich and powerful.

Anyway, she continued on that way while Clio bounced right beside her. She noticed new faces which should be the juniors and her other fellow seniors, but she was still looking for a very particular face and soon, her eyes landed on that person, she wanted to see the most. Her face lit up with joy as she approached the very angelic senior of Airdalen. "Good morning, Aeon!" She happily stood in front of Aeon with a beautiful smile on her face. "Good morning, Clio says!" Even Clio greeted as the pink ball flapped its ears in a fluttering speed. She then without much of a word embraced the male. "I missed you so much!" She said without reservation as she has a happy yet gentle smile on her face as she pulled away from him, not bothered by what she did. Why would she? It's normal to show affection to people she likes, isn't it? "How is your vacation?" She asked with those eyes of hers twinkling in anticipation, like a child about to receive a gift from Santa Claus.

Immediately, Shiori tensed up as a tall male with fairly pretty long brown-blond hair sat down beside her. She didn't recognize him, so he was obviously a Junior. Just because she didn't socialize often, didn't mean she wasn't aware of her classmates and their names. She cared about them and made a point to remember their names, she just couldn't express any of that to them in a healthy way. She was trembling just seconds before his arrival, and she was nervous that he might have noticed.

She took a moment to look at him when he turned his gaze the opposite way, blinking in curiosity. He sat here, only to ignore her? She tilted her head a bit at him, completely baffled by this boy's sense of logic. If he was shy, he would have had trouble approaching her. If he was hyperactive she would be looking for a way to plausibly escape this seating arrangement, and if he was creepy, wouldn't he have done something strange to her by now? Did he expect her to say something? Was he sitting here because she was quiet and just wanted to be left alone? She began to really overthink his actions and it was driving her a little crazy trying to decipher through all the possibilities on her own.

She turned her head away from the long haired junior (Rhys), completely confused by his choice to sit with her in silence. Suddenly the lack of noise was beginning to feel very awkward, so she did the best she could. Socializing was always her worst subject, but there were a few topics she could discuss without going on the rude defense, "Etto... the weather's really hot today.." She stated, looking up at the sky, shielding her eyes with one hand. The shade of blue was beautiful, and despite her home-body reputation, she did love warm days like this. Something about days like this one was nostalgic and brought her a small sense of peace. Perhaps it was because she met that boy on a day somewhat like this one?

"I'm Shiori Kitogawa." She added, not looking at Rhys directly, in fact, she was now staring at the ground, letting the toes of her shoes shuffle against the concrete to keep her mind off of the fact that she was talking to a complete stranger. So far she was doing alright, but she was definitely nervous. It wouldn't be long before something spurts out of her mouth to offend him. She was just postponing the inevitable. Sometimes she wasn't even sure why she even tried. Most people at this school hated her, the others simply tolerated or didn't care about her existence in the first place. Why did she try so hard to change? Then an image of that little blond boy she met as a child came back to her. The boy hugged her once when they first met, and she completely froze in panic. She knew there was probably still a picture of it somewhere, but she didn't personally have a copy of it. Ever since that day, she decided she wanted to be more like him, to be able to warmly embrace others and make friends so easily, to smile in that warm way, just like he did.

When she thought of him, she saw the colors one typically associated with summer, because that's exactly what his kindness felt like, the embrace of a warm summer's day. Her violet eyes shifted to the tall junior, and then back down to the ground, "You don't have to reply to me, I was just trying to be polite, that's all.." Her tone was a bit distant and definitely had a defensive edge to it. Her nerves finally got the best of her, and her body was going into protective mode. This was her own form of self preservation, of keeping her feelings protected from greater forms of pain at all times. Sure, loneliness hurt, but rejection from someone considered a cherished friend hurt way worse. She found that out at a very young age from her mother, but also because a friend betrayed her trust back in elementary school. She never wanted to feel that pain again.

Why did he sit here..? I want to ask, but I'm scared of the answer.. just like with Kazuhiko.. I'm always scared to ask people the more serious and intimate questions and end up making a fool out of myself instead. She was growing depressed with herself, so she busied herself. She put her pen and notebook in her bag, looking around at the students that came in since she began talking. T-That many!? She was immediately intimidated by the number of known and unknown faces surrounding. She knew that no one was watching her, but somehow she felt as though they were all spying on her, waiting for her to slip up.. She felt like everyone in the area was waiting to find a reason to judge her, even though common sense told her that no one here cared about her or what she was doing. Half of them didn't even know who she was, and the other half..well, we discussed the seniors earlier in this post. Why do I overreact to everything? Why can't I be like all of them and just act natural..? Why do I have to be so different..? I wish I could talk freely about anything, just like everyone else.. I hate being different.. Shiori thought to herself, nervous and angry fists tightening in her lap, sort of crinkling her skirt.

It might have been a gazillion times this had been asked by a very annoyed Kazuki. "Who made it that school should start at the rising of the sun!? Dammnit!" He muttered very loudly as he clicked his tongue in irritation, but that is not really the problem here. Anyone who would come to parking lot inside one of the vehicles parked there would see the notorious or more plainly known as the Hellion, handcuffed to the steering wheel. "Why the hell does he have handcuffs in the first place!?" This remarkable handiwork is done by no one else, but the ever lovely uncle of his who is also actually, Airdalen's Mr. Hayashi, the Math Teacher.

Now, why was he like this It's because, he decided to sleep in and not attend this stupid program. He really planned on playing hooky, but his uncle miraculously did not have one of those forgetful spells and literally kidnapped him from his house on his bed. "This is an outright violation of my human rights! I'll sue his ass when I get out of here... Tch!" Other things to add to his irritable mood are his early attendance, being in a vehicle, and also it was his uncle who dressed him all up, so right now, he looked like one of those picture models for those high school promotional movies or something with slick-back hair. This was going to be bad for his rep. "I'm really going to enjoy cutting that old man to pieces..." He grumbled further as he fought his restraints and looked inside the car for a way to free himself.

"I swear that old man is a pervert or something..." He continued tugging on his handcuffs and in irritation, he kicked the floor of the car. That was then he heard a jingling sound. His golden eyes shimmered like a cat who had found a beautiful fish to pounce on. He managed to open the glove compartment and there he saw the keys to his handcuffs. It was a good thing that his uncle is forgetful. Things were certainly looking up for him. A grin was plastered on his face as he now thinks of ways on how to get it. He managed to grab hold of it by using his teeth and dropped it to his waiting fingers. "You can't keep me locked in, buddy..." He said with a very confident smile as he began unlocking his restraints. It did the trick as he stretched his limbs. He could feel the blood beginning to flow freely once more.

All of this was done so he would participate in this program. His uncle said that he would be returning to take him inside once everything is settled. There was no way in seven levels of hell and seas would he babysit some punk still looking for his or her mommy. There are better things worthy of his time than that. Anyway, he released a big sigh and commented. "This was not how I envisioned myself getting tied up. I was thinking along the lines of a beautiful dominatrix. Anyways, time to split!" He has that Cheshire grin on his face as he whistled a bit and was about ready to leave the car. He doesn't like staying inside of these contraptions as much as possible when his stomach gurgled in rebellion. "I didn't even have breakfast yet." He finally remembered as his wake-up call had been chaotic at the very least.

"Stupid uncle, I still have that leftover subway sandwich inside the fridge. Tch!" He punched the dashboard and then left the car while slamming the door behind him as it fell. He left me in a car that's falling apart... This is why I hate these cars." After doing that, he messed up his hair, returning it to its normal style. He popped open his jacket, loosened his tie and then rolled up his sleeves. That was then, his phone vibrated. It's a good thing he managed to grab that one. There was a message from one of the girls he had hit at the club, it's very suggestive. Then, if a literal light bulb could be seen on top of his head, there will be one. He had a wide grin on his face along with those feline eyes of his. It was rather intimidating like that of a devil, but a handsome and alluring one. It's good for him to be born with such good looks. "Got my ticket then." He went towards the main grounds where he could see that there were some people around. It was passing glance and he didn't really care about them. What good students they are, how boring.

Kazuki ignored them as he went to the gates. He was about to walk passed two girls, one with blue hair (Gen) and the other with orange hair (Vika). But, he didn't have time to confirm who they are since; he has one thing in mind, leave the premises when the guard noticed him. "Oi! Miyamoto! Stop right there!" The guard came out of his booth and began to walk towards him. He stopped momentarily and clicked his tongue. That good old for-nothing uncle of his probably warned the guard. "Shit!" He began to move again as he made his way to the gates, but there was another one waiting for him. They came in prepared and his uncle made sure they did. Why does he have to be serious at the most useless moments in his life? Why!? With that, he quickly made a roundabout to escape their clutches.

"Hayashi-sensei said not to let him escape! Catch him!" One of the guards said as they began to multiply like cockroaches and they were quite good. It's to be expected; after all they have to ensure the security of a very high-end school with very important students in attendance. He made the run while using the obstacles around him like the rails much like a tightrope and then jumped down with smirk on his face. "As if I'd let you catch me! Suckers!" He was able to make his way through the benches and stopped at one where two students (Shiori and Rhys) were presently sitting. "S'cuse me! Up and over!" Kazuki literally jumped over the bench where some of the guards halted. He then landed just a few inches in distance from another pair of students (Akira and Mai). Watch where you stand!" Then, he heard the guards were hot on his heels again. Well, see you later kiddos!"

Kazuki continued as they were still in pursuit as he looked over his shoulder. "Persistent bastards..." He muttered under his breath and then looked in front of him. There he noticed a very large tree where there were another pair of students (Yuuki and Bishop) arguing or more like being told off. "Get out of the way love birds!" He said as he grabbed at one of the branches and swung himself across, much like a gymnast. "Miyamoto! Get back here!" As if, he would do that. He continued his pace as he ran across another student (Johnny) on a bench. He was now on the other side and saw three students at one bench. His smile widened even further as he went towards the group.

"Hot stuff, coming through!" He announced as he pushed his way between another pair. (Saburo and Arietta) Then, he literally stepped on Ryou's foot to wake him up that should serve as a deterrent to the remaining guards coming after him. "When you snooze, you lose!" He shouted towards Ryou and then continued forward as he finally halted in his escape, actually, he tripped on something as he fell flat on his face. That was embarrassing. "Dammit! Who did that!?" He shouted angrily as he quickly went back on his feet. His face was rather red and bit bruised. Then, his eyes landed on the one responsible for his fall. His eyes narrowed in disdain. "And here I thought, the heavens had finally taken you back." There before him was Aeon and the lovely Cassiopeia.

That was when the guards finally caught up to him and grabbed him. "Finally caught you, Miyamoto!" The guard announced with a ragged breath. Kazuki glared at Aeon for being the reason of his so-called apprehension and then shrugged his shoulders as he didn't fight anymore. "Well you know what they say, peeps and pops, there's nothing like a good exercise to jet start your day." He said with his carefree casual way as the guards glared and sighed at this. Oh yeah, tell my uncle. Does he have insurance on his car?" He ended that with his infamous mischievous smile. It was after all a normal thing to be expected from someone like Kazuki Miyamoto.

"You mean the little fluff of black on the ceiling?" Vika replied when Gen spoke. She'd been too excited to react properly when they boarded the bus, and she had spent most of her time staring out the window. Her mind was reeling with possibilities that could occur during this school year, and every now and then, her eyes would flicker towards Gen. Would they still be friends after High School, when Gen left for college? The thought had momentarily caused a frown to mar her lips, but it was replaced by a smile soon after. She couldn't dwell on something so frivolous. Of course they would remain friends. Even if they were separated for an amount of time, not a day would go by that she wouldn't think of her friend.

"Nope, I didn't see it. He must have crawled down the sink by the time I went in," or was accidentally squished and she didn't know about it. A visible shiver went down her spine as she absently lifted her arm and checked for remains. Satisfied, she went back to staring out the window, watching the scenery pass by. Once they arrived at the school, Vika's eyes widened slightly in awe. It was beautiful, the grounds. The school itself was rather large in appearance, but also pristine. It seemed almost flawless, or perhaps it was the spur of the moment that made it seem ethereal. She continued to gaze at the school, glancing at the small crowd of students already forming, however; a tinge of familiarity hit her when she caught sight of pink hair.

She couldn't tell who it was, seeing as the pink-haired girl was currently embracing another; a male with blonde hair that she did not recognize. Maybe he was a senior? The scene was rather warm, in her opinion, and she smiled at the two. She was pulled from her stupor, though, when Gen spoke. She resisted the urge to giggle at her friend, and instead, played along. She stared at Gen, holding her gaze before finally speaking. "But you must know, moy Gen-chan! I only have eyes for you!" she stated, removing one of her hands from her friends grasp, and reaching up to gently touch Gen's cheek.

"With eyes as beautiful as the Dahlia's, how could I look elsewhere?" she continued, leaving her hand still on Gen's cheek a moment longer before removing it. She chuckled as she folded her free hand beneath her chin. "I don't know if I'll let my eyes wonder, moy Gen-chan. Relationships and I aren't built to last," she continued, being only half serious. Much like her friend, Vika hadn't experienced a relationship before, however; it didn't mean she didn't know what it was supposed to feel like. She did not have her friend's fairy tale view of them, but she didn't have a cynical view of it either.

She was much too young to be thinking of something like that to begin with. She needed to finish school, perhaps in college she could find the time for dates and the like. For now, she was content in being a teenager, being with her friends, and being herself. If the time came that she would have a relationship, then she would welcome it with open arms. "Don't worry moy Gen-chan. If, by chance, my eyes do wander, you would be the first to know," she reassured her friend with a gentle squeeze of the hand. She opened her mouth to say something more, however; she was abruptly cut off by someone shouting. She blinked in confusion as she turned towards the source, and noticed a guard following after another student.

"This will certainly be an interesting year, it seems," she stated with a short chuckle.

BISHOP TRANDER

Image


Bishop sat on his bench as content as could be. He had a tiny smile on his face, looking around and taking in his surroundings with a youthful awe. He felt lucky to be here, the school grounds were stunning and gave the presence of culture, sophistication and above all quality not just in the physical aspects but academic as well. He gently nodded his head from side to side as his bright golden hair shown in the early sunlight making him appear bright and cheery like the spring air. <Well.... It appears that no one noticed my mother's attempt of embarrassing me. This is an omen! If I persevere and do my best, I can over come any obstacle!> His smiled brightened and the freshmen clenched his right hand into a fist of determination that fire in his eyes coming alive again betraying his innocent appearance. He felt he could accomplish anything!

"Do you often make a hobby out of playing music right next to strangers when they are trying to study..?" Bishop visibly flinched now noticing a girl with purple hair and glasses (Yuuki) standing in front of him... And boy did she look upset. "Aahh umm... Eh-" "I take my education very seriously, and I am trying to work on my cram school assignments. I cannot do that when that, whatever that was, is playing!" Bishop was flabbergasted. Never in a million years that he thought his first 5 minutes on campus that the blonde wold be getting chewed out by a girl. To be honest she kind of reminded him of his aunt, how she lectured him. His eyes widened taking on the appearance of a puppy's looking up at her in shock, appearing to water up. "What do you have to say about yourself?" Bishop flinched again but never took his eyes off of this upset girl (Yuuki). "Uhh.. Y-You.. Don't like music?" He paused asking a question that seemed innocent and fine to him, although it was actually rhetorical. "I thought- that maybe some people would like something nice to listen to." What might be a surprise to other people, was his tone wasn't defensive or retaliatory in any manner of speaking. His words were laced with an American accent but it wasn't atrocious by any means despite how nervous he was. Bishop adjusted his posture and fixed his collar as a nervous tick diverting his eyes away from the girl (Yuuki) to spy and see if anyone else was watching them noticing a tall brown haired boy quickly turn away as if he was about to watch a train wreck- which is exactly what this was. <Oh my god! This is a disaster! How could this happen to me right when I was about to turn everything around! I'm gonna be ruined!> His mind reeled thinking of exaggerated circumstances where he was going to be made fun of for life because of this simple misunderstanding.

"I... I don't have time for people. Please turn that down... or put these on. You're distracting me..." Bishop blinked when the girl (Yuuki) spoke again and offered her a set of headphones. He looked at her hand then back up to Yuuki again and held his hands up. "Oh umm.. N-No thank you. I couldn't take something that's yours, especially something so personal. Hehe. He smiled sheepishly, yes he smiled at the girl (Yuuki). Despite being beat over the head for trying to make someone's day better. "I have my own headphoness. I'm sorry to have bothered you, I didn't know it would cause a problem." Bishop would first turn off the music then straighten up in his seat and bow in apology towards his violet haired heckler. When he came up there was a soft, gentle smile on his face as he closed his eyes. "I-I hope you won't hold this against me... I hate to make a bad first impression my first day here." He absently rubbed at the back of his head, gently ruffling the golden locks that swayed in the soft breeze. Bishop's thought process was largely anti-conflict. His mother gave him some advice as a kid when he was holding a grudge against a boy in elementary school. <Every person is having a struggle that no one else knows about. So be respectful.>

"Get out of the way love birds!" Bishop looked to see some guy (Kazuki) swinging on a bench flying past them. "Wah!" He flopped to the ground to avoid being hit. He sat up from his position to see that same person (Kazuki) sprinting around the courtyard avoiding the security guards like the plague. That was until he tripped by a a couple (Aeon & Cassiopia). He looked back up to Yuuki and rubbed the back of his head again a bit nervously. <I'm such a dork....>

"Someone once told me, I have a talent to tame wild creatures, not a responsibility I like to have at all."


Another pink was in front of him, however this one was not a petal. It was a form of a human, a rather beautiful one at that. That is something he would not deny. This person is someone he knew for a long time and someone, he would label as his friend. Still, his stoic facade never faded, but those eyes of storm gray held the tinge of recognition and softness. This was only a brief moment, before he answered the source of such a cheerful greeting and the speaking pink ball towards his person. "Good morning, Cassio---" He was unable to continue his words as he felt those slender and soft arms encircling around his neck. This action was something he did not turn away or was he cautious about it. That is because he knew very well that this gesture never meant anything else but simple and pure affection.

However, Aeon did not return it. He is well-aware of manners and the respect he has every intention to show in regards of the quite popular, Pink Princess. She then mentioned she missed him very much. There was an odd sense as he recalled the many calls and e-mails he received during the summer. "I apologize if that made you sad. I answered all of your calls and messages." He then gently placed his hands on her arms, removed it from his form and released it. This was not a sign of rejection, but of courtesy. She then asked how his vacation had been. He looked back to his so-called summer break. It is true that he had been traveling in and out of the country, but they were not for leisure. It was strictly business. However, it was all in all... "It was fine."

He then saw a pink petal landing on her nose. Aeon reached out with elegant yet swift movement as he plucked it, then, he released it into the wind. His eyes lingered on it for a while before he looked at Cassiopeia once more. "How about you." The tone remained with his usual monotone voice as he offered her his hand. It was a polite gesture of an invitation. If she held his hand, he will lead her to sit beside him. Due to these moments, there had been rumors circulating that they are lovers. Furthermore, the only girl who he seemed to tend to without any prior obligations or reason was Cassiopeia. At the same time, she was the only one who could attach herself to Aeon without the fear of being brushed off in anyway.

This might have been contributed to why Cassiopeia does not have much of female friends as they avoid her. They are rather envious and jealous of the pink-haired girl's assumed importance to the rather known School Idol or the relative word, Prince, especially when she just came here last year. However, they do not know the rather complicated nature or the history between the two. They are also not aware that the heart of the Pink Princess does not belong to Aeon in any form nor did he want it. "I have heard from Hotaru. I do not object in any of the decisions you would make in your life. However, I would like for you to remember to take heed of yourself." One of the conditions that Cassiopeia had been permitted to study here and be far from Greece was that Aeon promised to look after her. Of course, he also assured Cassiopeia that he would not be hounding her, he will give her much freedom.

At that point, he noticed from the corner of his eye, a commotion. Aeon is already aware of the source of it as he heard the guards shouting. There was only one person within this Academy that has the audacity to do such things. And as if on cue, the known Delinquent appeared with every intention to escape the clutches of the ones after him. He could also determine that his current track would collide with Cassiopeia which he would not allow. As such, he grabbed her arm and then pulled her towards him. "Excuse me." He caught her as not to hurt her, not minding the closeness of their bodies as he then switched places with her. The one now sitting was her and he was standing. He straightened himself and extended his leg a bit.

The desired result was then achieved as the so-called delinquent fell flat on his face. It was effective as the guards' faces lit up in relief, because they are able to catch up with the animal who is known as Kazuki Miyamoto. However, the man was able to recollect himself and angrily wanted to know who was responsible. The answer came to him without a doubt as those golden eyes looked at him with contempt. He was not bothered by it, but he could not ignore this man as much as he would like. This is all due to the request of Hayashi and the Principal. They placed him into his responsibility. Then, the delinquent noted he had thought the Aeon had been taken to the heavens or roughly meaning, dead.

"You are such a child." He stated this after Kazuki mentioned about his uncle's car having insurance. Through all of that, his indifferent mask never changed or showed any kind of other emotions. "I would not stop your intentions of making yourself as a fool. However." His eyes never leaving the form of Kazuki. The man could be compared to a leech or a parasite. Truly troublesome. "Do not bother others who do not like to be involved with your idiotic machinations." His words were spoken with such flawless precision, but the edge of coldness resembling the coldest of ice. He remains calmly pristine, but it was evident that he is not pleased at all. "I will leave him in your care." His eyes landed on the guards who stood before him with such stiffness and due respect. "Yes, thank you for your assistance, Belrose-sama." He gave them a nod and then looked at Cassiopeia. "I shall take my leave now." And then, he began to walk away whether Cassiopeia would follow him or not. He would not dictate it.

First day of school, it was already starting to be too troublesome for his liking.

"Come on wake up!I want to show you something, Ryou... Something very beautiful."

The voice he wanted to hear so much faded into nothingness and instead, it was replaced by a feeling of pain radiating from his feet. It felt that something or probably someone stepped on it. That's why slowly but surely, his eyes opened to the image of reality. He didn't utter any recognition of it by releasing any sound. This spoke volumes on his tolerance and exhibit of control. He is such a composed person as he simply opened his eyes and then looked to his right side where he felt presences of people nearby. It made him wonder if he will be welcomed by the sights of those hounding girls. They might be the cause of him being stepped on to wake up.

But, he just saw two people, a pair composed of a girl (Arietta) and a boy (Saburo). The female was a familiar one to him. The male was not. His eyes of silver gray reminding one of the moon's light gazed at them. There was no blame in them as it still was faintly hazed with sleepiness, but he did hear the girl, Hakushiro that's her name if he remembered correctly, apologized. That was odd in his understanding. "I'm fine." He answered in a soft yet casual manner as he stood from his seat, finally showcasing his full height. His eyes landed on his foot as he moved it around. "But, why are you apologizing?"

Once more, his eyes fell on her. Then, he heard a familiar voice which he wanted to avoid for the duration of his day. He looked towards that direction seeing Miyamoto surrounded by the school guards and the known school idol (Aeon) and the kind Cassiopeia. Somehow, he now understood. It doesn't take a genius to figure out the scenario. "It's not your fault." He stated without any pretense, but it was enough to silence any argument as he looked at Hakushiro. His words had always have weight about them whether he noticed it or not. There was still a smudge of dirt at the hem of skirt and he knew she was just a victim as anyone else from Miyamoto's rampaging scene. He deduced the girl must be blaming herself for whatever happened which he had a clear reason to believe was done because he was here. Miyamoto had always did everything in his power to issue fights or challenges to him in different ways.

"Here." Ryou took out a clean handkerchief from his pants' pocket and handed it to her. "There's still some left." Whether she took it or not, he continued after she made her response. "It's a thanks for your concern." He said to give reason for his gesture. Most people feel more comfortable when there are reasons behind actions and especially when they're stated. Ryou then looked to the unfamiliar face, the boy (Saburo). "Welcome to Airdalen." He assumed that the new face was a freshman if he was wrong, then it's his bad. He then looked from the boy (Saburo) to Hakushiro. From his observation, they seemed to know each other. He must be interrupting them. "I guess, I'll see you two around then." Once he said that, he took his leave by walking away from that spot. He didn't want to be noticed by Miyamoto any more.

This was one of the days that he didn't want to be bothered by that fellow rowdy senior of his. He had a beautiful dream and that was shattered because of his self-proclaimed rival wanted to bother him with useless things. Anyway, he walked along the pathway as the Sakura blossoms were being blown by the wind. He looked at the falling petals as some landed on his shoulder and head. It was a beautiful contrast against the blackness of his hair and the paleness of his skin. It was like a painting when it involves him. Then, there it was again that voice he wanted to hear always.

"Did you know that the sakura petals can make wishes come true? It made mine into a reality. See, you're here with me."

His eyes held a hint of sadness and had an image as if he was looking across time. Just like that, he reached for one petal which landed at the palm of his hand and then closed his hand as if impaling it with an unspoken wish. Then, he released it to the winds, hoping it would be true, his dream.

Aeon's simple answer of I'm fine or the complete logical response that she should not miss him as they talked as much as possible were things she really expected out of him, but she did hope that he would entertain him with stories. It was apparent that he was not really the kind to discuss his vacation so openly or he seemed fond of his summer break. Cassiopeia tilted her head to the side in curiosity as she put her hands behind her. Were his trips not exciting and fun? He was always off to one place after another as she heard, but thinking about it now carefully, it must be all business related. That would make it boring then, but it's still a story she would like to hear someday.

It became her turn when he asked about hers as he held out his hand to her. Her face quickly lit up like a child within an amusement park as she happily took the hand and sat beside him. He was always a gentleman which made her happier. "It was so fun! I really wished you were there, Aeon! Hotaru brought me to Kyoto, Okinawa, Mt. Fuji! It was so amazing! It looked like a delicious ice cream! Right, Clio?" She energetically shared while looking for support from her mechanical assistant who bounced up and down matching its mistress' excitement. "Yes, delicious, Clio says!" She nodded her head happily at that agreement. She clapped her hands as she remembered the memories she made during her vacation and continued with her tale. "There were wonderful temples and a lot of sand at the beach. Hotaru told me that there will still be a lot of things I need to see. I'm looking forward to it!"

"Again! Clio Says!" Clio supported its mistress' enthusiasm. Cassiopeia lightly giggled at this. "Yes, let's do it again!" She stated with a bright smile, but it was replaced with a slight pout when Aeon mentioned about hearing from Hotaru. She did hear something about that from her overprotective guardian. She listened to his words and she was thankful for him. It's not a secret that her parents allowed her to come here due to Aeon's help in the negotiations. That's why she's very happy to have him at her side even if she thinks it's selfish of her to use their friendship which started a long time ago to her advantage. He had always been considerate of her. That's why she wasn't that surprised when she found out that Aeon was considered an idol of sorts at this school, but it was still a bit funny in a different area.

She took a deep breath and extended her hands forward where Clio recognized for it to come. It did and Clio was now being held by her in between her hands. "I'm fine... I know that I've been causing you trouble ever since I came here.. But, I've never been this happy before." She stood from her seat and then walked a bit forward as she did a pirouette. She stopped in front of Aeon with a dazzling and gentle smile. "Thank you very much, Aeon." At the exact moment, she said that. Her arm was grabbed by him which earned her surprise, but this was not caused by their bodies being pressed closely for a short time. It was caused by the fact he touched her. It might be odd. It's true that she had been the kind to shower affection through actions and being held by other people was not much of a bother to her, but he was different. He rarely touches her and when he does so, it's for a reason like saving her from a collision. That’s why she can’t help but be surprised, because she does wish that he would touch her someday not for anything else but just because, they’re friends.

She found herself seated again and Aeon standing while looking down at a man who fell on his face. She recognized him immediately. "Kazuki-kun!" She exclaimed as Clio's flapped its ear wings in a frantic manner. "Danger! Danger! Clio Says!" Kazuki was able to get back on his feet and confronted Aeon. She knew that two had always been at odds with each other. They were polar opposites, but she believed that they are wonderful friends because of it. She really does have a different view of things. "Are you all right?" She asked in concern as she stood from the bench and approached Kazuki who were surrounded by the guards. He did fell on his face. She looked at Aeon quickly when he clearly assessed Kazuki as an idiot. "Aeon! You should not say things like that!" She reprimanded Aeon in a motherly tone as Clio backed it up. "Say sorry! Clio Says!"

But, Aeon instead announced that he would be leaving. Cassiopeia sighed at this while lightly shaking her head. She looked at Kazuki again and saw that he has a bruise at the bridge of his nose. That was rather awful as she remembered Kazuki saying that many girls would cry if he gets hurt. It's probably because he's handsome. She released Clio and took out a band-aid with a pink color and heart design. "Kazuki-kun, please be careful. I don't like seeing you hurt. I know Aeon feels the same way." Her perception at best comes out as nonexistent. She then placed the band-aid on the bruise. "There, all better!" She smiled at him in which the other guards present looked at her fondly. "I'll see you later then." She waved at him as Clio followed it up too. "Bye! Bye! Clio Says!" She then followed after Aeon with Clio trailing behind her.

Cassiopeia was able to catch up with Aeon as she walked beside him. "Aeon, that was not nice. Kazuki-kun must have a reason for doing what he did. You should try to understand that." She stated with a motherly tone that is very natural of her. "Right! Clio Says!" She sighed at this and that's when she noticed something bright in front of her, like orange. "Hmm? Could it..." She stopped from walking and just looked at someone who was with a known face to her. It was Gen and the one beside her... At that point, Cassiopeia's eyes twinkled in happiness and a bright smile on her face. "Vika!" She shouted a bit loudly as she ran passed Aeon with such excitement. Her hand was flailing about in a cheerful wave.

She soon reached her destination in which she launched a very delighted hug towards Vika. Her arms were around the younger girl instantly as she gently squeezed Vika in her enthusiasm and happiness. "I'm so happy to see you here!" Her face was truly a reflection of delight of seeing and meeting Vika here. It had been quite a long time since they saw each other. This year was turning out to be a wonderful one.

Golden eyes narrowed distinctively as it fixated on the so-called idol of the school which he would like to call personally as an arrogant piece of bastard (Aeon). This pissant and him never got along from the very moment they laid eyes on each other. They were just too different from the personality to their way of life. But, their paths crossed eventually through for whatever reason it may be, this shit-face always manages to stop his antics with the simplest touch. That is the very reason he hates Aeon's guts or whatever he has going on. Ever since then, it has been this guy's directive of sorts to handle him as if Kazuki would dance to anyone's tune except his own.

"If I'm a child, then you're a fucking old man!" He snorted at Aeon who remained ever so calm. It annoyed him even further and really that's something in Kazuki's book. No one really gets under his skin, like Aeon does. Somehow, it seemed to be the same with Aeon who's stoic tone held a noticeable degree of ice coldness. "Good advice, why don't you follow it, bastard." He hissed at him like cat and then it was replaced with an arrogant smirk when the guy finally decided to leave him alone. "Yeah, walk away." He nodded his head, as he saw the pretty-faced pink girl approaching him. At least, something good came out of this.

Cassiopeia had always been the one thing who believed that he's not rotten as everyone else believed. She asked if he's fine and all. He shrugged his shoulders with that confident expression of his. "Nothing hurts me, love." He said with a wink as one of the guards tightened his hold on him. "Geez! Get off my case, already..." He was well-aware how popular the pink-haired girl is not only to the students here, but mostly to the boys. It's because of her infectious kindness in tandem with that beauty of hers. She's a keeper as they would say and speaking of which, she does have Aeon somewhat under her thumb in most cases like how she earlier scolded the guy.

Actually, that's why he would often try to get chummy with the girl. Just to find a way to have a wonderful payback at that good-for-nothing Aeon. It's good the girl has total zero defense towards anyone. But, it does get difficult at times, especially now. The girl suddenly came to him about not liking seeing him hurt and that Aeon feels the same way. He chuckled at that, because this girl has a knack to be a comedian. It made him wonder how Cassiopeia was exactly raised. "You worried? I'll believe, but him? That would be the day the pigs finally fly." Out of nowhere, he felt something on his nose as he took a look at it. The guards tried to hide their laughter about the pink band-aid with a heart on his face. This was definitely going to ruin his current get-up which he just got back earlier from his uncle's styling.

"Oi! Cassiopeia, get back here!" It was a little too late as she had left in tow with that weird looking pink ball of hers, following that stupid Aeon. Kazuki shook his head in dismay, but not about that. This was another thing about that girl. She was completely oblivious and just too naive for her own good. The pink-haired princess was simply someone hard to pin down and that's simply just how she is. At the same time, she just manages to get everyone to be dragged into her pace and her world. Well, it's not like they can blame anyone about that. Her world is certainly much better. He would also admit that makes him at times holding back when it comes to her, but just a very tiny bit.

In any case, he released a big sigh as the guards finally let out their laughter. Kazuki was well-aware of the reason for that. It was the blinding band-aid on his goddamn nose. He couldn't take it off as his hands are being restrained by the guards. "Sheesh! A kiss would have been better." He raised his complaint as he looked at the guards. "Would you release me already? I have this hideous thing on my face." One of the guards managed to stop laughing. "It looks good on you. Pink suits you, Miyamoto." Kazuki rolled his eyes at that and shook his head. "I know... I know.. But, come on, give me a break here. I can't have all you guys swooned at me. I already have my hands full with the girls."

Even with that, Kazuki is still full of himself as he winked at the guards who shook their heads in disbelief. Nothing could really get this guy down for too long. But one thing is for sure, it never gets boring with Kazuki being around. Anyway... "Whatever you say. We'll get you to Hayashi-sensei." The guard said as they drag him to his uncle and he was certain it was another session where he wished he didn't have ears anymore or something along those lines. Really, his uncle just has that screechy voice. He doesn't know if it's because something happened to him while growing up or whatever. It's just not pleasant to listen to it especially when it's used to telling him off.

As far as it looks, Kazuki was going to look forward to the first detention of the school year.

"But you must know, moy Gen-chan! I only have eyes for you!"
Gen had to fight back the urge to laugh as Vika played along and she was sure her friend was doing the same. While witnesses may think the girls were being serious, it was just them up to their usual dramatic antics. It made Gen reminisce of when they met, personally hard for her to imagine a close friend once was a complete stranger. Friendship truly was magical in her eyes, along with love. "Dear, you must not tease me so~" she said as she reacted hesitant at the touch of Vika's hand caressing her cheek and even managed to think embarrassing thoughts to surface a blush to go with the act. It was one of Gen's natural gifts; the ability to act. Normally, all she had to do was recall a single or several memories from her life relevant to the character she wanted to portray. It made her performances believable, even if the play itself was written poorly. Gosh, how she loved theater.

"With eyes as beautiful as the Dahlia's, how could I look elsewhere?"
Gen was thoroughly impressed. She couldn't have foreseen such a well done improvised line coming from her friend. They were so in sync that it made her consider if her attitude had rubbed off on Vika or maybe subconsciously, the other way around. She wasn't so sure anymore but she was having fun. Gen wasn't uncomfortable at all as the act continued on, her own hand placed on top of Vi's gently. In this instance, her friend's height could be considered relevant rather than a hindrance.

"I don't know if I'll let my eyes wonder, moy Gen-chan. Relationships and I aren't built to last,"
Gen's fake blush and anything else for that matter were thrown out the window and replaced by a look of utter disbelief. Her gorgeous friend in relationships that weren't built to last? It sounded like such an absurd concept to Gen. She just couldn’t fathom it! "Well ma cherie~ only time will tell." Gen said with her head turning away, lips forming a small subtle smile. You'll see my dear~ when you find the one. It will be a love so beautiful. Gen really believed with all her heart. If not for their conversation still ongoing, Gen would be spending time trying to figure out what Vika's type was.

"Don't worry moy Gen-chan. If, by chance, my eyes do wander, you would be the first to know,"
Gen finally let loose a chuckle in a lady-like manner as her hand covered her mouth slightly to quieten herself. β€œYou have no idea how happy that makes me, dear~” Gen smiled warmly with her hands entwined in a cute manner behind her back. Turning around at the commotion, she observed as a guard chased a student she recognized, senior Kazuki. It was a wonder how that boy had made it to senior year without repeating grade all over again. There were suspicions of Mr. Hayashi’s involvement. It was no secret that they were related.

"This will certainly be an interesting year, it seems."
Gen’s bright eyes lingered a little on her fellow classmate Kazuki as he stirred up further trouble, jumping over a bench that had a young shy couple (Shiori and Rhys) occupying it. The sight made her laugh again. ”Quite a good looking fellow, kno? It’s a shame he doesn’tβ€”β€œ before she could finish, they were interrupted as a few more fellow faces from her senior year showed up in view. First came Cassiopeia, followed by Aeon but Gen wasn't sure if he would stay long in their company. He didn't seem to be fond of socializing from her experiences sharing classes with him. It was only then that she realised the 'young love' couple she had seen before from a distance were those two but it wasn't much of a surprise. The real surprise for Gen was when Cassiopeia's arms draped over Vika in front of her, causing her to take a step back.

"I'm so happy to see you here!"
Gen's eyes moved from Vika to Cassiopeia and continued at this pattern until she was a bit dizzy. A small world after all. Unsure of how to approach the situation, Gen took a deep breath in and resumed her pleasantries even though her presence had been ignored for a bit. Her optimistic side didn't want to linger on being ignored, but focus on the positives such as her friend having already another friend to help her around Airdalen. She wouldn't have to worry about Vika fitting in as the girl would do just fine with Cassiopeia. The pink-haired elite pretty much got along with everybody. "Cassiopeia, hope your holiday was well~" she spoke up when the opportunity arose, her smile resuming even though she was a tad bit confused. "Aeon, I hope yours was pleasant as well darling~" she gave him a polite bow of the head whether or not he stopped walking to join them. Somehow, this puts me in a strange spot... but just grin and bear it!

Vika chuckled at her friend's statement of the bi-color haired teenager, and glanced his way. Perhaps he was a charming guy, but Vika was never much for one's appearances. Everyone looked beautiful to her. She was a little odd that way, maybe? Her attention, however, was taken by the appearance of a familiar face, and when the pink-haired girl made her way towards Vika, she stood with open arms. Receiving the girl into an embrace, Vika enclosed her arms around Cassiopeia and she nearly squeezed the girl to death.

"Cassi! I didn't know you were coming here," she stated, rubbing her cheek against Cassiopeia's in a friendly manner. "I wish you would have told me. I would have been prepared to receive you better!" she exclaimed as she finally released Cassiopeia. She blinked when she finally noticed another person in their vicinity and glanced towards Gen. She seemed to know the both of them on a personal level, or so it seemed, and she smiled at the newcomer.

"It seems we will all be going to the same school this year, I'm Vika Saitou," she introduced herself to the platinum blonde male. It was a lovely shade of blonde, however; she still preferred the white of Gen's hair and the bubbly pink of Cassiopeia's. Odd hair color's were something of an appeal to her perhaps because her own hair was such an odd color. Orange, on the verge of being ginger, wasn't a common color. Even for her ethnicity, one would have thought her one part Irish, at least. She pushed the thoughts from her mind and turned back to the people when the overhead speakers came alive.

"Well, since we're all together here, shall we go together?" she questioned as she glanced at her company. "It'd be nice to go with friends, no?" she continued, smiling at the three of them.

Cassiopeia giggled with joy at Vika's response. It was really wonderful to see Vika again. "I had no idea you're going to attend here too. But, this is truly a wonderful surprise!" She couldn't agree more to her own words. Life had always been the kind to throw bags of unexpected events, but they are the best things in her personal opinion. "I'm really happy! This year will truly be great, I could already tell!" She was really excited as she clapped her hands in glee. This will be her last year in high school and somehow, she wanted to enjoy it as much as possible with her friends around her. She had met the girl last year through a music competition. They had a connection instantly and it just went from there, but they were unable to maintain a constant communication afterwards, so it's really great to see the ginger-colored hair girl here.

When she and Vika finally let go of each other, she looked towards Gen with a warm smile. "Good morning Gen-chan!" She didn't want to be rude of not acknowledging her fellow senior's presence or to imply that she didn't notice Gen, because she did. "Thank you for asking! Japan is a very beautiful country! i had lots of fun during the holidays seeing different spots!" That's when something came to her mind she immediately grabbed Gen's hands with excitement behind those mauve blue eyes of hers. "I still haven't seen the other places! That's why during our next break, why don't we go all together?" She was asking with such innocence and vibrancy with also complete sincerity in that request. "It would be more fun!" She then looked over to Vika and then to Aeon, hoping for their approval of her honest request. She returned her attention to Gen for confirmation. "Wouldn't it?"

That was when the announcement was sent through the school grounds. The teachers had finally asked for them to go to the hall, for now, they could go all together towards as suggested by Vika, They can start from that point. "I agree! Let's go together, friends!" She answered happily as she released one of Gen's hand and then reached for Vika's as she dragged both girls to the direction of the hall. She remembered how happy she was back then when she finally got her first friend in the form of Aeon. Now, she was having a lot more friends than she could even hoped for. "Come on! Let's go!" Right behind her, the ever reliable Clio bounded behind her adorably while echoing the words, "Friends! Friends Go!"

She was full of energy and was very happy on how everything is turning out. This was far different from the sheltered life she had back then at Greece. She has her family back then and she loves them very much until now, but she was unable to live a full life. Now, she was able to ever since she came here, so she was very truly happy. All thanks to her very first friend as she looked over her shoulder to look at Aeon. "Hurry up Aeon! Come on!" Hopefully, it would always be like this for the rest of the year and may be finally... she could meet him once more. If that happens, then she really would have no regrets at all. Really, all she could do for now was be happy with the things and people she has around her. That's why she can always have a smile on her face.

"People bother with what they are seeing or with other people as much as possible. It is because they try to avoid seeing themselves which is pathetic."


It did not take long for Cassiopeia to walk beside him and began scolding him about saying mean things towards Miyamoto. That he should understand that animal as he would describe and call the one in topic. This was even supported by Clio as he remained composed and ignoring the words being told of him. He knew that it would go unnoticed and certain as well that Cassiopeia would shift the subject to a different one. The girl always had an ability to find something interesting every few seconds. One would wonder if she could focus, but apparently she could if her grades would be a basis.

And just like clockwork, the pink-haired girl had set her sights on a different thing or person on this matter. She mentioned a name and ran towards the direction where he saw two females. One (Gen) he is familiar with and the other (Vika) not at all. He maintained his pace and soon arrived at the area where the three girls now gathered. From what he could gather, Cassiopeia is familiar with the orange-haired girl if the embrace they both shared was something of a proof. He was not opposed to the idea of Cassiopeia having friends or meeting new people, especially if they do not hold any ill intentions. She always wanted to have those friends so, he will not hinder her.

Of course though, it would not mean he would not assess these people in his own way. He was responsible for her and promised certain things to her parents in the process of her studying here in Japan. He stopped before them as Gen wished that his holiday had been pleasant with manners. "Good morning and thank you, Fukui-san." He started with his polite sensibilities. "I wished the same with yours." His words were not tinged with any malice, yet despite the civility, one could tell the distance being put into it. Even if, he also courteously slightly bowed his head. This could also be seen in his expression that was still stoic, unchanging. It was a good thing that he was quite attractive as some of the students passing by girls and guys alike cannot help but be in admiration to the pristine image of Aeon.

At that point, the girl (Vika) Cassiopeia had ran towards to introduce herself as Vika Saitou. He could already tell that Vika is not a purebred Japanese from her mere appearance. Her name added to that as it is a common name for Russians. However, he set that aside for now and introduced himself as well. It was only proper to do so in return. "Belrose Aeon." Despite his ethnicity, he had been raised in a very traditional home which makes him more ingrained with the culture of this country as demonstrated in his way of introducing himself. "Nice to make your acquaintance." He once more partially bowed his head when Cassiopeia had yet again another of her ideas as she presented it to Fukui.

Cassiopeia wanted to have all of them go together during their next vacation break to the other places she had yet to go to. The Argyris Princess looked at Saitou and him to agree her logic that it would be more fun. He was uncertain about that belief, but did not say anything. For, it looked like that Cassiopeia was completely enamored with it. Though, he could try to calm the pink-haired princess' enthusiasm a bit for her not to appear too overbearing. "You are getting ahead of yourself, Cassiopeia. Allow them to have time to think about it properly as they could have other things already planned." His voice did not hold any resentment, but just a reminder to be more considerate. That seemed to work as the pink princess as she settled down and the announcement did help as well.

Aeon looked towards the way where Araya-sensei had made the announcement with a megaphone. There are speakers all over the school. Did they not remember to use the PA system or did they forget the school has one. It was also far convenient to have told the students beforehand to gather at the hall than here. Alas, it was not his to bother with. That was then Saitou suggested for the four of them to go together as friends. It made him wonder when that assumption had been made when they have simply met. Before anything could be said by him, Cassiopeia took control of the situation. She happily dragged the two girls towards the hall while calling out to him to hurry up.

He closed his eyes for a brief moment. Yet again, he was being dragged to the pink princess' pace. Something he would only allow with her. He opened his eyes and looked at the three girls together whether all of them liked it that way or not. Aeon would admit that seeing Cassiopeia so happy with a bright smile on her face was quite a sight along with the other two. They were not bad on the eyes either as proven by the male students who were blushing at the scene. He could also tell that some of the looks he received from the males were of envy, being surrounded by such beautiful girls. Remaining cool and completely immaculate, the students who were near the vicinity could not help but be in awe. Some were very happy to be near him as they walked towards the hall. Others cannot believe their luck being around him. Well, it could not be helped when it comes to him, but he would believe they are wasting their time with such emotions. Shaking off such stares as he had always done, he followed behind the three at his own walking pace.

Really, he could not wait for this day to end for all he could foresee is trouble.

"Good morning and thank you, Fukui-san. I wished the same with yours."
Gen had a passing dissatisfied look on her face like a pout with her fingertips reaching for her brow, covering an eye in the process. β€œFirst name basis is quite alright darling~ no need to be so formal.” She responded, removing her hand and smiling as she spoke. She appreciated his reply but at the same time it felt a little off putting if he was going to treat her as if she were a stranger or as if they were newly acquainted. They had been in the same senior class for quite a length of time after all. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Gen had asked that of every other senior too. Despite that, she highly doubted he would heed her words based on his personality and due to the fact they weren’t close to begin with. If they had talked prior, it would’ve been a similar situation as to now with simple light greetings.

As Aeon and Vika introduced themselves to each other, Cassiopeia had turned to her."Good morning Gen-chan! Thank you for asking! Japan is a very beautiful country! I had lots of fun during the holidays seeing different spots!" Gen smiled at her fellow senior’s enthusiasm, already aware that she wasn’t a native to Japan. She was a bit interested in what had brought the energetic girl to their country too; was it family business or something more? There was no way for her to know as just like her and Aeon, she wasn’t close to Cassiopeia. The two had been running in completely different social circles.
Gen’s bright purple eyes widened in surprise as Cassiopeia’s hands clasped hers. "I still haven't seen the other places! That's why during our next break, why don't we go all together?" She couldn’t help but note at this point how the two (Aeon and Cassiopeia) were opposites in regard to how they approached people. Aeon kept people at a distance while Cassiopeia seemed to real them in. Well, they do say opposites attract~ "It would be more fun!" Gen was finding it harder and harder to refuse the girl the longer the offer was pushed forward. It wasn’t that she wanted to refuse, quite the opposite. It did sound like it’d be fun and all, but she wasn’t sure how the rest of the company would take it if it consisted of Aeon and more apathetic men in their travels.

Wait… more men? Gen’s eyes almost glittered at the thought. While she wasn’t particularly attracted to Aeon, she was aware that he was quite handsome and wouldn’t be surprised if there were more just as good looking guys in the pink-haired elite’s life. Maybe it was destined to be! Maybe she’d meet… the one. "Wouldn't it?" β€œYes, I do believe so~ but I wouldn’t want to trouble you…” Gen’s hands were now holding Cassiopeia’s with a matching liveliness.
Before she could continue daydreaming and falling deeper into her romantic fantasies, Aeon had caught onto their conversation. "You are getting ahead of yourself, Cassiopeia. Allow them to have time to think about it properly as they could have other things already planned." Gen snapped out of her thoughts and resumed her casual look of friendliness accompanied by calmness. She had gotten a little carried away inside her head at least… not that anyone else would know besides Vika maybe.

An announcement was made by Ms. Araya, requesting all students to head inside the school hall. "Well, since we're all together here, shall we go together?" "I agree! Let's go together, friends!" Gen chuckled lightly at Cassiopeia and Vika, starting to understand just how similar to the two were and why they were friends to begin with. "Come on! Let's go!" Before Gen could say anything further, she found herself along with Vika, holding hands with Cassiopeia in the middle leading them towards the location and Aeon trailing behind. She sighed inwardly but not out of frustration. Well~ this is certainly a bit of a change. Engrossed in her thoughts about school in general, the male eyes observing her and her company were not given any attention from her.
Unfortunately for them, they had only arrived just on time so most seats were for the most part occupied with single seating here and there except for the seats that nobody else but girls wanted in the front row… cause of Kazuki. Those girls of his had likely been disallowed to sit there but as there were no seats really available for all four of them it wasn’t really a decision she had to make. Gen’s hands slid her uniform skirt properly behind her before sitting down next to him, taking a moment to admire his features before returning her attention to the assembly at hand. While she wasn’t a fan of his, she wasn’t against him either as evident by the way she spoke of him with Vika earlier that morning. He was one of the seniors she still hadn’t decided what category (to like or hate) to place him in. Those things took time. Similarly, she was still getting to know Aeon and Cassiopeia.

The appearance of the Principal was a little… odd. She hadn’t expected to see him at all before she graduated but for some reason or another, he had actually gone through the trouble. It was a nice gesture, she supposed.
β€œFor seniors, I encourage you to make the most of your final year before the college entrance exams and before leaving Airdalen in general. The time you spend partying compared to the time you spend studying makes all the difference to what career options are available to you in the future. Not one to brag, Airdalen’s reputation and connections that I have spent years building up to has led to this moment, your final year. I have done my part but it is up to you to seize this opportunity as a student here under this high school’s name, to put in the extra mile that will determine the rest of your life from this point onward.β€œ
She couldn’t help but whisper quietly over to her seatmate Kazuki, β€œI get the feeling he’s trying to address you~”

β€œOh, that’s my cue to leave then…
In short, everyone, I do wish you all wholeheartedly the very best with your studies. Keep in mind I do not mean to alert you, just prepare you for the future as I am confident the Airdalen staff members are trying to do for you as well so please respect them too in my absence. Enjoy your first day back!”

Gen clapped at the conclusion of the principal’s address politely before listening to Ms Araya’s instructions on junior and senior pairings. So, that’s how it will be this time around~ She proceeded to stand up and retrieve her folder but realised Kazuki-san might not be as... willing. "Kazuki, would you like me to retrieve yours as well darling?" She spun around.

Cassiopeia is completely oblivious from the looks she was receiving from the other students whether it came from the boys or the girls. She entered the hall and all eyes were immediately on them or on her. The seniors knew her very well while the freshmen were in awe of her appearance. She was like the very model of what a princess from a fantasy world should look like which earned her nickname, Pink Princess, but popularity, reputation and things like that didn't matter to her at all. This is would be odd, since she's one of the popular girls or even daresay the most popular in the academy. She's very social which at times can be overbearing which she doesn't mean to. That's why Aeon is very helpful in those areas just like earlier, reminding her to take a step back, but she's still well-liked for she's a very genuine person which makes it very hard not to like her.

The seats were mostly occupied and the ones where they could all sit together was at front. "It's a good thing we made even if it's barely..." She said with a bright smile, since they're not late. There's no questions about where to sit from her point of view. She followed Gen's lead and sat beside her with such elegance for very little effort. Clio finally reached its mistress and landed on her lap with it's ears flapping. "There you are Clio!" She greeted it which happily replied. "Clio made it!" That's when she noticed that Kazuki was on the same row as them. He was actually Gen's seatmate. "Hi Kazuki-kun!" She greeted him with a smile and then looked at his nose in delight not minding that the band-aid she placed was gone. "It seemed to be better now. Does it still hurt?" There's concern on her eyes, but her attention shifted when the program finally began.

She looked at the projector screen and had that wide-eyed look on her face. It was priceless in a very adorable way. She had never met the principal before. He looks to be a very nice and cheerful man. She would like to someday meet the principal in person, because this is a wonderful school where she has so many fond memories and will continue to make more for this year. The speech was wonderful and when it ended she clapped her hands not only for politeness but because, she liked what she heard from the principal. It was then Ms. Araya's turn who told them that the seniors are to come up at the front to pick their folders which contained their freshman partner or for the other word junior.

She was very excited about this and can't wait. "I'm so excited to know who will be my junior! Are you excited too, Gen-chan? Kazuki-kun?" She asked the two and then looked at Vika. "I wonder who's your senior partner going to be, Vika!" Cassiopeia was in full glow of excitement as she then looked at Aeon. "This is so much fun! Isn't it?" Clio supported her as always. "Fun! Fun! Clio agrees!" She then smiled happily as she stood up from her seat while Clio bounces at her side again and went to Ms. Araya. "Good morning, Araya-sensei!" She greeted the teacher and then took her folder. "Thank you!" She looked at the ID attached at the front. "Wow... So pretty... Look Clio, don't you think so?" Clio bounced higher to see the picture and spoke in agreement. "Clio agrees! Clio agrees!"

She happily returned to her seat to show her the others her junior partner. "Look everyone! Look Aeon! She's very pretty! She's my junior!" She showed the junior's picture proudly to Gen, Kazuki, Vika, and Aeon. That's when Clio interjected with a very well-timed fact about her junior partner. "Clio! Clio agrees pretty boy! Pretty boy!" She had a startled expression as she looked at Clio in question. "Eh? Boy? Isn't she a girl? Akira... Blake?" Clio answers. "Boy! Boy! Clio reads boy!" She looked at the ID again and there's the gender which stated male. "Oh... you're right... A boy..." She nodded and the burst into a smile. "Well, he's very pretty for a boy! So cute!"

That's when she hugged the folder closed to her chest. "I'll be looking for him then! Wish me luck okay? I'll see you all later." She happily waved at them and then went on her way as she looked around the hall. "Hmm... Clio, do you see him anywhere?" Clio continued to bounce happily and then its eyes began to blink red in affirmation. "Clio sees! Clio sees!" Cassiopeia brightened at this info. "Where!? Clio show me the way!" Clio did so as it bounces towards Akira while some of the students moved out of the way and looked at the bouncing pink ball in surprise and curiosity while Cassiopeia followed behind. Clio soon was in front of the junior partner (Akira), bouncing with zest. "Clio found pretty boy! Clio found pretty boy!"

"There you are Clio! Oh! You found him!" Cassiopeia was now behind Clio which bounced towards its mistress in pride. "Clio good! Clio good!" She lightly giggled at this. "Yes, you did good Clio." That was then she noticed another presence, this was familiar to her. "Arietta-chan, good morning!"She greeted her fellow senior with a bright smile. She didn't expect to see Arietta and was happy that she did. "How was your vacation? I wish you had lots of fun." She asked with a sincere smile, then she looked at her junior partner (Akira) and the others present there (Bishop and Mai). "Are one of them your junior partner, Arietta-chan?" She asked and then introduced herself to the freshmen. That should be common courtesy. "Hello and good morning, everyone, I hope you're enjoying Airdalen. My name is Cassiopeia Elegy Argryis." She introduced herself with such a natural sophistication similar to that of princesses without any effort while Clio bounces happily at her side in which she gestured for it to come which it did.

She was now holding Clio as she presented it to them. "This is my friend Clio." Clio happily introduced itself. "Clio! Clio's name is Clio! Nice to meet ya!" She then looked at her junior partner with such kindness. "You must be Akira Blake, right? I will be your senior." She showed the ID picture on the folder. "See? It's a pleasure meeting you and everyone as well." She smiled at them kindly and without a hint of anything except for sincere friendliness.

"This is but another responsibility thrust onto me. As such, I have no choice but to acknowledge it and as always, I will ensure it to be without failure."


It had become a routine between them and Fukui. She would always state that using her first name would be fine, however, he was not the kind to do that just because he was told so. His usage of first names had great bearing for him. It is used by him towards the people whom he had recognized to have significance to him in a certain sense. Furthermore, it is only done towards a very limited amount of individuals which one would be Cassiopeia. As such, the students and even staff at the the academy could not help but assume the pink-haired girl is special to him. The notion is not incorrect, but there are certain factors that should be considered and he would not explain that to anyone.

That is why he simply did not respond and chose to left it at that. For now, he followed the three inside the hall. The seniors who noticed his presence greeted him as a show of respect. He answered them due to his polite tendencies, but then he did not stop as small talks which he could sense targeted towards him were not very appealing to him. In any case, he had other matters to attend such as where to sit. Apparently, there are sporadic empty chairs scattered about. Knowing Cassiopeia, the girl would like for the four of them to be together. The only chairs available for that purpose would be the ones at front. However, that parasite is there. He watched the girls who did not even bat an eyelash in taking the said front seats.

Aeon, without much of a choice, joined the three girls. He occupied the chair at the aisle and remained pristine as he had always been. And soon enough, the program began. The Principal made a surprising appearance especially when the man seemed to be favoring anonymity to his own students. As for him, he had met the Principal due to his circumstances. It was imperative and such. Furthermore, there was also the favor bestowed to him. The reason he could be seen intervening in Miyamoto's activities. No matter, he put such irritating thoughts aside for now. He watched and listened to the Principal's speech and when it was done. A well-timed clap was delivered by him as this should be proper decorum. Others also followed his example and when the applause ended, Araya-sensei had taken the podium.

The female teacher announced that there will be teams consisted of the Seniors and the Freshmen more known as the Juniors. He had heard of this activity before and now, he was going to be a part of it. Cassiopeia was clearly excited about it and that was positive thing to see. At least, someone was purely enjoying this. In any case, the Senior students were to collect the folders in her possession which held the basic information of their assigned Junior. He obliged as the other Seniors did as well. A polite exchange occurred between him and Araya-sensei before the folder was given to him. He found the attached ID of his Junior with the name of Fujioka, Yuuki, a female freshman.

With excitement, Cassiopeia showed the picture of her Junior. She was saying that it was a she and her Junior is very pretty. He would admit the person on the picture was very feminine and would fall into that category. However, he read at the gender section that the she is actually a he. He was about to say something about it when Clio had went ahead on it. It was clearly obvious that Cassiopeia was not the kind to dwell on mistakes or misapprehensions. She was already looking forward meeting her Junior as she went on her way but not before bidding them goodbye.

As for him, he looked back at the picture of his Junior. He should begin looking for her as well. His eyes landed on Saitou and Fukui while he completely ignored Miyamoto in the entire process, despite the obvious flirtations going on. It does not concern him at all. "Fukui-san, Saitou-san, I will be going on ahead as well. Excuse me." Delivered in his ever calm and impeccable mannerisms, he left them as he began his search. Some of the seniors both male and females approached him and offered their greetings. Others even tried to engage him in more talk, especially of the girls who was clearly speaking to him with subtle flushed faces. However, he politely dismissed himself and stated he has the need to locate his Junior. This is true of course.

Continuing on, Aeon soon found his Junior among the throng of students. He also took noticed one of the female Seniors that would ask for his assistance in linguistics. He approached them and announced his presence in a manner with such eloquence and a presentation that avail him of his current prestige around the school despite him not doing anything special in his understanding.

"Excuse me. Good morning, Kitogawa-san." Aeon could see that Kitogawa was conversing with a male, someone new in his understanding probably her Junior. "To you as well." He implicated the younger male (Rhys) since it is the polite thing to do. Afterwards, he changed his attention towards his main purpose coming over here. "Good morning. Are you Fujioka Yuuki-san." When confirmation is given, he opened the folder taking note of the schedule and the map. "I am Belrose, Aeon. I shall be your Senior Partner. Here are your class schedule and the school map to make sure you will get acquainted with the academy's facilities." When it was taken from him, he continued on. "Our assigned team name is Bears." He had actually taken look at the contents of the folder and read the animal name assigned to them prior searching for his Junior. "I have no objections to it, however if it is not to your liking, do inform me. I will see what I can do."

He was of course asking for Fujioka's opinion. It is only the polite thing to do and from his standpoint, this girl would be his responsibility for the rest of the school year. Tedious really, however, he would not do his duties half-heartedly. He never did. "If you have other questions, do not hesitate to ask me. I will answer to the best I can." In that period, there was nothing out of place about Aeon. He was completely calm and collected, a vision. At the same time, the other students were also taking glances at the male Senior. They were also whispering to one another as to how lucky the freshman girl was in having Aeon, the School Idol, as her partner. Others were envious and mostly the girls since Fujioka would have opportunities to be close to Aeon in which they could not.

However, Aeon was simply doing what is asked of him. This was just another responsibility. Whether this was going to be a sound partnership, beneficial, or not. It would be left up to Aeon and Fujioka.

"I can't say no to a beautiful lady, especially when she's very willing to do so, Gen, my dearest."
I…I- Gen turned away from Kazuki for a moment as her eyes darted around the room with panic. All she could hear was her heart beat racing. The romantic side of her told her she had been hit by cupid’s arrow but would she be able to handle its calling? -Thump thump- She placed a gentle hand against her chest, trying to remain calm as she usually does but it was futile with two contradicting thoughts fighting one another in the back of her mind. It’s too soon.. -Thump thump- Don’t you believe in love at first sight? Well yes- but I’ve seen him before and I never--Thump thump- She loosened and stretched out the fingers of her free hand before forming a tiny fist, followed by closing her eyes and breathing in and out. Gen always wanted to be in love but she had never felt this way and it wasn't turning out the way she imagined it would be. She always thought she would have a crush on someone more of 'her type' which was someone charming, decent looking, tall... and mysterious. Kazuki was all of the above but mysterious as she wasn't blind to his reputation or the way he flirted around. Why do I hold his words with great weight nonetheless? With the hand above her heart, she gripped the material of her uniform a little tighter. Maybe it was simply the way he called her 'dearest' or maybe his handsomeness had won her over or maybe she was just a tad bit more dramatic and idealistic than the average girl but there was no helping it for Gen. It was out of her control in the meantime. She turned around again on her heel to meet his gaze, with a dreamy look on her face. Just roll with it dear, we don't pick who we fall in love with~

Image


"Thank you dear, you're absolutely charming~" She smiled, a real smile. It was something she didn’t do very often but she couldn’t help herself. It was thrilling to feel that way for someone, even if that someone for now was Kazuki.

"I'm so excited to know who will be my junior! Are you excited too, Gen-chan? Kazuki-kun?"
As if on cue, Cassiopeia spoke up glancing at the two making Gen feel inferior. Her smile faded and was replaced with a lost look like a deer in headlights. It wasn’t Cassiopeia’s fault, but the girl made her rethink her position. She was far from a princess, as the daughter of a butler. Gen shook her head not wanting to dwell on that thought. It wasn’t like her to think negatively about anything and she loved her father with all her heart. Also, theater that she loved so much would say otherwise. It wasn’t birth alone that made one a princess. β€œYes, but of course~ I hope we all get along just fine.” Gen replied, her smile returning but the polite one rather than the toothy grin. Cassiopeia appeared satisfied with her answer as she turned to Vika giving Gen room to compose herself more.

Folders~ She dropped a fist in an open palm at the realization. Gen walked to the front at normal walking pace and politely requested both her and Kazuki’s folders from the teacher. While Ms. Araya looked for them, she glanced around the crowded hall for a distraction. She spotted a fellow senior (Shintaro) in the distance looking anxious and wondered why he wasn’t picking up his folder too. Did he not pay attention to the announcement? β€œActually~ may I also request Shintaro’s? Poor darling looks confused.” When given, she hugged both folders to her chest and returned to her little morning group with her hair hitting against her back.

"Look everyone! Look Aeon! She's very pretty! She's my junior!" Gen only managed to get a quick glance of the white-haired junior (Akira) before Cassiopeia continued to excitedly show everyone else. It was a little humorous as Cassiopeia discussed the junior’s gender with her little contraption friend. β€œWell, he's very pretty for a boy! So cute!" Gen chuckled and looked over at Vika, as they hadn’t been able to talk much since the group formed. She gave the girl a reassuring smile and a few words. β€œI hope you’re not nervous ma cherie~ we’re quite a good class of seniors this year.” Gen wasn’t quite so lucky back when she was a junior. The memory itself was making her smile crack. Her senior would get so annoyed at her overuse of the word darling because she was the younger one in that pairing arrangement.

"I'll be looking for him then! Wish me luck okay? I'll see you all later." Gen waved as Cassiopeia made the first move to leave. "Fukui-san, Saitou-san, I will be going on ahead as well. Excuse me." She watched Aeon leave before sighing aloud beside her friend Vika. She had already told him to call her Gen, but as she predicted he was going to stubbornly keep up the formalities between them. β€œWell dear~ we must part but let’s walk home together?” She suggested even though it was practically a given with them living together. Gen handed Kazuki his folder with a lingering stare before withdrawing her grasp. β€œTry to have fun too dear~ it’s not so bad.” She said encouragingly while holding her cheek before making her way through the crowd to Shintaro further away.

”Darling~”
She extended her hand to give Shintaro his folder but as she did, she managed to glimpse a very familiar face as she eyed the ID. ”Oh, you got paired with Vika! Please do take care of her~” she nodded and looked over her shoulder as she turned away to say one more thing to urge him to follow through with his role. ”We’re a bit behind darling~” Gen was aware that he wasn’t as social as her other peers but he had a responsibility to fulfill as did every other senior. As Vika’s assigned senior, she also didn’t want the girl to be kept waiting. Goodness knows how nervous Gen herself was when she first started at Airdalen but thankfully she got the hang of things rather quickly despite her unpleasant senior.
When her favors for other seniors were done, all that was left for her to do was meet her own junior. She finally snuck an once-over at the folder’s photo to see whom she had been assigned. Saburo. Male~ Without further thought, she looked up and her purple eyes scanned the room for chestnut colored hair to match the photo. She had to maneuver around the crowds which took time being small and easily overlooked, but eventually managed to find him sitting with friends of his own. Without a doubt in her mind, she knew it was the right person. Gen was pretty good with faces and didn't feel the need to reaffirm it.

”Hello Darling~”
She approached her junior with a subtle smile, removing the paper clipped ID copy to show what she was here for before snatching an unoccupied seat near him. β€œI’m Gen Fukui, but Gen will do. Welcome to Airdalen Academy darling~” She said cheerfully, bowing her head before reading the team name. β€œWe’ll be group Lions… Lions? Well, that’s certainly something on its own don’t you think so? If not, we can change it your liking~” She proceeded to share the contents of the folder by opening it between them but her head was in the clouds. She looked for Kazuki discreetly while Saburo was occupied. She wondered how he was doing and caressed her cheek shyly thinking about the future.

"Good morning. Are you Fujioka Yuuki-san."

Her attention that began to wander to the boy behind her (Johnny) and his senior (Ryou) and Shiori who seemed to be the reddish haired boy's (Rhys) senior. Then a voice broke through, speaking her name and her eyes darted to the source whom was a very tall and aesthetically pleasing male who appeared to be a Senior. "Hai. I am Fujioka, Yuuki." She nodded in a quiet and formal tone. Seeing as she was a living and breathing individual who was blessed with the gift of sight, of course Yuuki realized that the blond male senior was of course extremely attractive, but luckily for him, such things barely phased her. It would take a lot more than being in the presence of an attractive boy to get her flustered, because well, she wasn't really psyching herself out. She didn't let her mind wander on whether he had a girlfriend or not, nor did she really care about such things. She had a mission, so the blond's (Aeon's) attractiveness was just a trivial detail to her.

"I am Belrose, Aeon. I shall be your Senior Partner. Here are your class schedule and the school map to make sure you will get acquainted with the academy's facilities."

"Arigatou gozaimasu. I will do my best. " She responded in a genuine tone, already looking over her schedule and the map. Though he continued to speak, so her golden eyes returned to Aeon. The name was a bit difficult for her to pronounce, but she kept repeating it in her mind until she got used to it. She didn't want to make a fool of herself, that wouldn't do her any service.

"Our assigned team name is Bears."

Bears? Yuuki blinked for a few moments as she thought about their given name. It kind of suited him, considering his height, but she was small and petite, so she couldn't help but feel it was a bit ill suited. Although, she was told her wrath could be ferocious at times.. Either way, she wasn't too concerned with something as insignificant as a team name.

"I have no objections to it, however if it is not to your liking, do inform me. I will see what I can do."

Yuuki shook her head quietly, "It doesn't matter. It's just a name after all." She responded in an even tone. If her calm demeanor wasn't creepy enough, Yuuki's face had kept a relatively blank expression for a fair majority of the duration of their conversation. Every now and then curiosity or gratitude lightly painted itself over her face, but little else. There were rumors at her middle school that she wasn't even human. A lot of her past classmates whispered about their theories. The one that stuck in her mind was the one that claimed Yuuki was an artificial intelligence robot that Japanese government was testing out in a human environment. The rumors hurt, but she didn't have time to let them bother her, so sometimes she'd play along with them, only making them worse in the end.

"Paging someone named Kon Mai! Kon Mai! Report to this very awesome Miyamoto Kazuki who is speaking. My time is worth millions so hustle it junior! Thanks!"

"If you have other questions, do not hesitate to ask me. I will answer to the best I can."

"I didn't... but now I have just one. How did that imbecile like him end up as a student in this school?" She asked in an irritated tone, eyes rolling a bit as she discreetly directed him to look in Kazuki's direction. She noticed the girls glaring at her out of the corner of her eye, but she said nothing about it. She wouldn't be immature and stick her tongue out at them or anything, mostly because she didn't want to stoop to their pathetic level. Why swoon over a guy who didn't seem to care about their existence? How dimwitted could these girls get? They spent too much time watching T.V. They definitely were deluded, and she only felt sorry for them to be honest.

"Just to be thorough.." Yuuki began in a businesslike tone as she stood to face Aeon directly, although it didn't seem to put much of a dent in their height difference. She straightened out her skirt and adjusted her glasses before continuing with what she had to say to him. She felt it would be necessary, but also felt it would just do well to let him know what to expect from her, but also what she expected from this arrangement, "I see that you will be an invaluable and very resourceful asset to this team." she complimented Aeon, although her tone nor expressions did not change from her formal persona, not even once as she spoke this time. Her golden eyes were determined, but they were also still calm and collected as usual. Her eyes landed on the little fan club again, and she closed her eyes for a second to gather her thoughts before speaking. She didn't want to lose her cool, and she wanted to speak precisely as she meant the words to come out. She wanted to leave no margin for misunderstandings, "I'm not going to be one of those girls." She referred, nudging her head absentmindedly in their direction, because she didn't care if they disliked her or not. She wasn't here to be popular, she was here to get the best education that her grades and test scores could earn. She wasn't rich after all, she was here entirely on her own skill that she spent almost her whole life cultivating with hard work and sacrifices. She paused long enough to let him get a word in, seeing as she hated it when others rambled on without letting her speak.

"I look forward to having a successful partnership and I will not hesitate to let those girls know that their presence is a nuisance and furthermore a distraction if they prove to stand in the way of our team's progress." She thought it was best to go ahead and put that out there. She hated failing, and losing because of them would be unacceptable. She intended to give one hundred percent. Though she realized that if this was going to be an athletic event, she would only hold her Senior back. She knew she had to speak up on her athletic inability, even if it was embarrassing.

"I do not like to lose, but if this is for athletic purposes, I highly doubt that I will be of much use to this team. Gomenasai." She informed him, bowing apologetically. It didn't hurt to apologize in advance, especially since Gym was her weakest mark. She knew she needed to improve it to keep her grades steady at this school, but she wasn't really sure how to go about that. Perhaps a club? Though what sports club could she join that wouldn't be too loud or obnoxious? She'd have to ask Aeon later.. but for now she felt she'd spoke enough, perhaps even a bit excessively.

"As I have always said, business will always be business. Never be mistaken that there could be more to this."


A very loud and deafening sound of the sirens echoed throughout the hall. Whether he was annoyed or found it to be discomforting, Aeon did not show any signs of it outwardly. In truth, he was not even confused as to who was the proponent of the noise for his assumption was confirmed by the next sound that reverberated. It was none other than the so-called Hellion of Airdalen Academy. The man had managed to secure the megaphone and used it as a means to call out the assigned junior. In a certain degree, he does felt pity towards the freshman paired with Miyamoto. However, it is a concern that is not his at the moment.

At the present, his attention is duly reserved to his own junior, Fujioka. The female appears to be reasonable, proper, and indifferent. This was very preferable in more ways than one. As for the topic about the team name, there would be no changes apparently. He has no findings about that in any case. In regards to questions, Fujioka raised a very sensible one. It was regards to Miyamoto's attendance to this academy. The girl explicitly implied that Miyamoto is an imbecile. It seems that his Junior has a tacit tongue which he prefers than lies and overly pleasantries. Despite his desire to ignore the parasite, he would have to speak about the man. "Miyamoto-san is a rich individual able to avail the fees of this academy. His behavior is very questionable at best, however it is ensured he does not break the rules of this institution. This is strictly implemented by Hayashi-sensei and if needed by me as requested by the Principal." There was a small pause at that while his voice remained with its casual elegance. Not a tone raised, or an implication of personal emotions implied in any of it.

The next words that Aeon would say might appear to be unbelievable, however it is the truth. "In regards to his aptitude, his actions does not speak volumes, however, he did pass the entrance exam with flying colors along with his requirements on academic work. He does not have a failing mark ever since his enrollment." Even him, he was skeptical to this firsthand. Then, proof and even his personal observations also lead to this inevitable conclusion. Miyamoto is a talented individual. The man simply chooses not to exercise them in its full potential. In any case, he was done with answering Fujioka's query about Miyamoto. However, he never did once glance towards the problematic Senior. Instead, his attention was taken briefly by the presence of another one, Giou Ryou.

This particular individual also shared a certain degree of benefits when they are near each other. It would appear that his presence would allow the fluttering crowd of girls after Giou be more tolerable and at a distance. In his case, Giou's appearance is a powerful influence when it comes to Miyamoto. The latter seemed to have an idea that Giou is his stern rival of sorts. As such, Miyamoto would forget everything else when Giou is around. Nevertheless, they rarely ever talk. They just rudimentary understand each other without much talk and like so, he did not do anything to acknowledge Giou nor did the other Senior as well. Though, he focused his attention to Fujioka when she spoke again even standing to him. She stated that he would be a valuable asset to the team, but would not be like those girls.

There was no need for Aeon to look at where Fujioka directed nodded towards. He was well-aware of his so-called fan club. Many had dubbed it so which he finds utterly ridiculous. He was not doing anything to gain such a following. In his own understanding, he is simply doing what he wants and what is needed, nothing else. Positive affirmation is useless for him. Nevertheless, he does find that Fujioka's statement to be favorable to him. He would be able to avoid such senseless things for he was not to see this as a start of friendship or anything. It is as the girl's tone implicated, pure business. "Thank you for the kind words and your stand is appreciated Fujioka-san." That is one less girl to be worried about who desired to form a bond with him. "You are free to speak your mind to anyone that you find to be an interference. You would not need my permission in such matters. It is just that you should be reminded that your words are your own responsibility." In a way, Aeon is implying that she should watch her language when doing so, for when it causes trouble. He would not be the one to clean up her mess.

It seemed Fujioka hates to lose. That would be a useful tool in certain situations. After all, Aeon operates in that principle as well. He hates to fail and be said that he could have done better. Although, she had informed him about her weakness for athletics. Everyone has a weakness of sorts. It does take courage to admit one whatever circumstances are. He gave a short nod at that. "I understand. I will do my part enough in such activities to compensate for yours. However, there is always room for improvement. Weaknesses are never permanent. It is but an obstacle to be removed." He had always had a peculiar way of encouraging others. His tone does not denote that but his words rang true. After stating that, he remembered the other materials inside the folder. This implied that there will be an activity. Perhaps, the teachers and staff were simply giving them enough time to get acquainted with one another before announcing it.

"Speaking of which, Fujioka-san. There will be an activity to be held after a while. The folder contains such materials to indicate that. I would expect your cooperation and assistance then." Never once, Aeon faltered from his persona. His calm, polite, yet impeccable manners never dropped a notch. One would wonder why many would see Aeon as an idol or admire the man when he seems to be distant, but one could see also that he is dependable and his words always held flawless truth. a way of a reminder and an encouragement, not judgement.

Johnny β€œJay” Farelli


Johnny listened very intently. Few times had he ever been this focused outside of physical performance. His hopes and dreams for the future quite literally rested on moments such as this one. Communication is byfar the most important thing he could possibly learn while in this prestigious academy. Once Ryou… or Giou-senpai finished, Johnny leaned back in his chair. He then said, β€œSo you would be Giou-senpai, and people would refer to me as… Farelli-kōhai, or Farelli-kun,” Johnny winced at how terrible and clunky his combination of words sounded. β€œUgh, I’d rather they call me Jay-kōhai, or Jay-kun, or Jay-san,” The third one put a smile on his face; that helped wash away the earlier thoughts.

As Johnny’s mind worked to compartmentalize the information graciously brought to him via his senior, he thought back to the entrance exam. It was byfar the first time he actually tried in anything academic. Nothing like his average interest and average exam results of the past, where all he cared about was getting the passing grade so he could continue his practice. For the first time, he committed himself to his progress. That he managed to strike well above average when he just committed himself like he did with his physical activities was simply astounding, even to his parents. When he got his results and the subsequent acceptance letter, he even thought that the exam was just too easy. However, when he learned about how harsh the exam really was, it made him feel more proud than he ever thought possible. She’d be proud as wel-

The foreigner’s train of thought stopped. No time for the past. There is still work to do. It was at this point that he started really paying attention to his surroundings. The purple-haired girl had been approached by an especially handsome-looking fellow with long, blonde hair. The foreigner remembered seeing that particular gentleman surrounded by many a boy and girl out in the courtyard, and continued conversing with a large group as a whole. Johnny caught the name Belrose, Aeon, as well as many words. The man spoke very deliberately, which allowed Johnny to catch more words than usual.

Johnny liked that in a person… though he may be biased for obvious reasons. In his mind, he wondered if the surname was Aeon or Belrose. Johnny figured Belrose, as Aeon did not strike him as a proper surname, unlike a name like Swanson. Swanson was very obviously a surname.

The girl- Belrose-senpai’s junior, it seemed- also spoke deliberately and professionally. He already knew how much he liked the relative ease of understanding others. Thinking back to his first encounter… or rather, avoided encounter, Johnny still wondered what her musical taste was. It seemingly did not include Coldplay. Was she into more modern stuff, or the classics like him?

His train of thought was sent off the rails when the loud announcement caught Johnny’s attention. That boy who was tackled by security earlier. He caught something about handsomeness, and two sets of words that sounded like names. Johnny figured it was an especially eccentric senior trying to find their partnered junior.

β€œI take it that’s… Miyamoto-senpai?” Johnny asked Ryou- more in a deep, almost growl-like tone, as if his powerful, smooth jazzy voice was conditioned to a point where he was oddly unable to whisper, β€œAnd the two in front of us, Belrose-senpai and Fujioka-… uhm…” Johnny scratched his head. -san seemed almost too formal, and -chan seemed way too intimate. He barely knew the girl, for goodness sakes! Then again, he did just hear Belrose refer to her with -san, so he followed suit. β€œFujioka-san?” Teachers, he thought, would be -san, -sama, or -sensei. He liked the sound of the word β€œsensei”, even if it did take up more syllables than the more efficient -san.

Or maybe -san would be the most efficient term to use for everyone. It’s so neutral, and it's only one syllable. Johnny was a man of great efficiency if nothing else. Not an ounce of needless fat on this boy’s lean bod. His lightness and athleticism would probably make him one of the fastest runners. He doesn’t know that for sure, of course. One visit to the track would prove who’s who, but the thought was present.

Speaking of running, Johnny’s desire to run began to latch on like a parasite. There were many people around, and they seemed to be grouping rather close. Johnny reached for his pocket and produced the ear buds. The music- he hoped- would help him deal with the thickening crowd. In Japanese, he managed to ask Giou-senpai, β€œDo we wait?”

"Miyamoto-san is a rich individual able to avail the fees of this academy. His behavior is very questionable at best, however it is ensured he does not break the rules of this institution. This is strictly implemented by Hayashi-sensei and if needed by me as requested by the Principal. In regards to his aptitude, his actions doesn't speak volumes, however, he did pass the entrance exam with flying colors along with his requirements on academic work. He does not have a failing mark ever since his enrollment."

Those words chilled her entire body as Aeon spoke, and her eyes shifted to where Miyamoto stood. Before she even realized what was going on, her whole body went numb. Here I am trying so hard.. This is just a cake walk for Miyamoto... Yuuki didn't respond to her emotions quickly enough to prevent her teeth from gritting behind her closed jaw. She was so lost in her own mind that she didn't even notice that she was lightly trembling due to a violent cocktail of jealousy and anger. She spent every ounce of her current existence training her mind, studying, and cramming information down her own throat.. and what did she have to show for it? It was people like Miyamoto that made her feel like her efforts would always prove to be in vain. She tried so hard to climb her way to the top, yet to people like him it was apparently as simple of a task as breathing. When she finally managed to collect herself, Yuuki realized that she had been quiet for quite some time, not even making eye contact with Aeon after he finished speaking. She unclenched her fists, flexing her fingers a few times as she spoke up, "I-I see..." She stuttered out in an awkward tone, eyes still directly staring at Miyamoto, even though she was speaking to Aeon.

"Thank you for the kind words and your stand is appreciated Fujioka-san."

"It's no issue, Belrose-Senpai." She responded, leaving it at that. She didn't like going through unnecessary pleasantries, and she would avoid it if at all possible. It was nothing against Aeon, but she honestly wished the event would begin, or that they could just begin classes.. She was tempted to find a quiet corner and crack open her cram school booklet she clung to as if it were a religious text.

"You are free to speak your mind to anyone that you find to be an interference. You would not need my permission in such matters. It is just that you should be reminded that your words are your own responsibility."

"I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm not looking to make any friends, so I assure you that I prefer to, and will handle any consequences that my words may bring on my own." Yuuki's tone was serious and solid. She didn't question her own resolve, not for a single moment. She knew she could handle it, she'd been through a lot of isolation and bullying, eventually they realized she refused to bend. Her eyes were set on a single goal, and so far, nothing else mattered. Although, part of her was still burning up inside. She was so angry that Miyamoto was able to keep good grades and enjoy life at the same time. She couldn't afford to slack off, the pressure on her shoulders.. It was too much to handle. She felt so helpless when her father fell ill, but now she felt like her family's future relied solely on her, and that was a lot to handle at sixteen. To be honest, she was hanging by a thread between stability and a mental overload, "I came to Airdalen to learn, my focus is a good college.. and no one will stand in my way when it comes to that."

"I understand. I will do my part enough in such activities to compensate for yours. However, there is always room for improvement. Weaknesses are never permanent. It is but an obstacle to be removed."

Suddenly, she kind of understood why he had such a large following. Although his tone was formal and he wasn't being flirtatious, his words of advice were actually rather motivational. Sure, she didn't see him like the other girls did, but suddenly, he was sort of a role model in her eyes. Judging by his vocabulary, she felt it was safe to say that he was studious. Also as she referred back to his comment about compensating for her lack of athleticism, she deduced that he was also athletic as well. Though just looking at him, it wouldn't have been hard to come to her second conclusion, although, Yuuki did her best to not judge a book by it's cover. Most assumed she was just a shy, cute little girl. She wasn't shy, so long as someone approached her with an academic conversation. Most of the time, Yuuki couldn't be further from being timid, "I'll look for a sports club that won't be too annoying.." She responded with a calm sigh. It would keep her busy if she was in a lot of clubs, besides, she did find herself with a lot of useless time at home. She could only study the same materials for so long.. A few extracurricular would do wonders for her college resume, especially if she added at least one athletic club. It wouldn't hurt her grades either if she began improving her gym scores.

"Speaking of which, Fujioka-San. There will be an activity to be held after a while. The folder contains such materials to indicate that. I would expect your cooperation and assistance then."

"Of course. I will do my best, Belrose-Senpai." Yuuki responded, her eyes finally shifting to Johnny, whose name she merely overheard a moment ago when he was talking to the blonde female (Arietta). Did he overhear her last name as well, or did she know him and simply forgot about him?

"Fujioka-… uhm… Fujioka-san?”

"Eh?" Yuuki's tone came out questioningly as she turned to face Johnny and his equally tall Senior (Ryou). This was the first time that she actually gave the brunet male a good once over, and he was much taller than she imagined. She had adjust the tilt of her head a bit higher to make eye contact than she initially did upon turning around, "Did you need something?" She asked quizzically. She didn't catch the rest of the conversation, but she was oblivious to his failed attempt of whispering. She assumed he merely was losing his voice.

"Even someone like me, there are things that I do hold important. Thus, I would do my best to accommodate them."


There was no need for Aeon to be told by anyone that Fujioka is distracted. He could see it well enough as this is one of his trades. From his observation, this was a result most probably brought out by the information he had revealed about the one the girl had called as an imbecile. It was indeed a surprising fact, however, he could sense that it was not the main culprit. As he taken by her intention defined and spoken, she was an individual who deals with hard-work and seriousness. Traits that he is quite familiar with. This also meant that she takes pride in the results she receives for it is something she deserves and that connects with him. She was jealous and angry as Miyamoto is someone who does not need to overexert in anything unlike what she does.

That was a normal reaction from his standpoint. It would do her well to use it as an inspiration that would propel her to greater heights unlike the certain imbecile who cares for nothing. However, he will not voice out his words. It would appear that Fujioka would like it to be hidden and so, he would respect that. In any case, it would seem that she was interested in joining a sports club which would not be annoying. He was uncertain what would fit in that category for her. Yet, it seemed they might have same preferences if that was so, he could offer one. "I would make a suggestion. You might like to join the Archery Club. You could observe and decide on your own."

Ending it at that, Aeon noticed that Fujioka's attention shifted to the ones behind them. There was Giou and in his conclusion the fellow Senior's Junior. It would appear that she had heard her being called. If that was so, he would not interrupt. There was nothing else to discuss at the moment unless Fujioka has another question. He instead looked around, searching for the Pink Princess. The girl in every sense is his responsibility in every sense. His eyes of gray blue soon landed on the said female. She seemed to be having fun conversing with a group of people and from what he recalled her Junior as recalled to the picture shown to him earlier. Well, it was not peculiar to see such a scene. Cassiopeia had always been a social butterfly even if the girl had been restricted much back in Greece.

Among the group, there was a familiar face which he knows to be Hakushiro. Cassiopeia had once described the girl to be kind, however the pink-haired female had always had a different eye when assessing people. As for him, he would not speak of his thoughts. It is better not to say anything since, it is not worthwhile. He then was alerted by the vibration coming from his phone as he took it out. There was a message from his butler that they had arrived earlier than expected. It meant that his younger brother, Brinx had come back from visiting his mother. That was good thing to know they had arrived to Japan safely. Continuing with the message, his brother wanted to see him. However, his schedule would not allow that at the moment.

As such, he answered that he would come and visit Brinx at during the weekend. After sending that, Aeon noticed a familiar hair color that he had attributed to Saitou. He took a brief glance and found the said girl in the company of Giou. Judging from the short explanation from Giou which he heard, he is Saitou's Junior along with the other male (Johnny). That was uncommon to have two freshmen assigned. It would only mean that a Senior had posed a problem. Nevertheless, it is not his concern and seeing the staff trusted Giou to handle it. That was enough.

Yet again, his attention shifted to his phone which vibrated again. This time it was longer which indicated it was not a message. He took a look at the screen and saw the name to be his butler, Rando. "Fujioka-san, excuse me for a minute." With that said, he removed himself from the throng of people and found a corner where he could seek a sense of privacy. There he answered his phone which instantly welcomed by a loud wailing before he could say anything. No doubt, it was Brinx and Rando was seeking his help. "Rando, hand the phone to Brinx." And so, it was done as he heard the voice of Brinx obviously still in tears asking if it was really him."Welcome back" And so, the conversation between brothers began. If one would take a very close and good look, they could see that Aeon's expression ever so slightly soften.

Vika wasn't nervous. The smile on her face seemed to stretch for miles as she glanced around, watching as the other seniors and juniors piled into the stadium. Her attention was taken by Cassiopeia, who seemed just as excited as she was. She then proceeded to show Vika a picture of her junior, and Vika's eyes widened a fraction. She knew Akira, and she couldn't help but chuckle softly at how excited Cassiopeia was to be his senior. They would get along, she was sure of it. Cassiopeia, in a way, was just like her, and if anyone could befriend Akira, it would be Cassiopeia. She bid her friend good luck as she left to find her junior, leaving Vika with Aeon and Gen. She turned to Gen when she was the next to speak, and frowned slightly.

It seemed that Gen wouldn't be her senior, and she inwardly sighed. At least whoever ended up with Gen wouldn't be bored. She blinked slightly when Aeon excused himself, and bid the blonde farewell as he, too, went to search for his junior. Vika was left to her own accord, and stayed in her spot, waiting patiently for her senior to arrive. It seemed like hours that she waited, and yet, no one appeared for her. Maybe they got lost? Or maybe I was forgotten? she mused to herself, straining her neck to see if anyone was coming for her. When no one arrived, Vika cast her gaze towards her hands, folding them neatly against her lap.

Should I go and ask the teachers what I should do? she continued, placing her thumb underneath her lip in a questioning gesture. Before she had time to allow the thought to take root, she was approached by someone familiar, or who seemed familiar to her. She blinked up at him, since he was standing and tall already, and tilted her head in a questioning manner before he leaned forward. He whispered something to her, and it finally clicked where she met him at. A slight 'oh', escaped her as she stood up to properly greet him. She gave him a friendly bow, and smiled brightly at him. It appeared he didn't want anyone to know about his job, and as it was his wish, she would comply with it.

"Don't worry, Giou-san, I will not speak a word of it," she stated softly so that only he could hear. She gave him a thumbs up before following him towards his other partner. Her senior seemed to be missing, and she was currently shifted towards another group. She wondered how long she'd be with these two before she was shifted again. When they arrived, Ryou introduced her to Johnny, and she noticed the shift in dialect as she was introduced. Perhaps Johnny didn't know Japanese? Whatever his reason, Vika chose to speak in the same dialect. It was a good thing she was multilingual. Well, being able to speak three languages counted, right?

"Hello, Johnny-san, it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Vika Saitou, but you can call me Vika, or whatever you'd like. I don't mind," she stated, smiling brightly as she folded her arms beneath her back. "I don't know how long I'll be with the both of you, but I hope we can be friends," she added, closing her eyes and tilting her head to the left, the smile on her face still blossoming.
