ᘉαтυяε:
Sakura is a bombshell of variety. She's hyper and quirky one minute then flirty and sexy the next, but she's got a million other sides too. Her personality changes with her mood and surroundings. At a party she is confident, dancing, drinking Imageand very lively. At school she is friendly, a little laid back, but definitely flirtatious. She's the one who rules just never apply to. She loves doing exactly what she's told she cant. You tell her she can't or won't do it, and she'll prove you wrong. At home or on her own time, her personality is much calmer, but once an attractive guy shows up, cue sex appeal. She acts this way because it is how her mother raised her to be. She was raised to flaunt her looks and to also express herself however she wished. She is a very smart girl, and doesn't hide it. She feels her intelligence makes her that much more appealing, and embraces all aspects of herself. She is very confident in her appearance and doesn't get embarrassed when wearing revealing clothes, or none at all. She is a reliable and responsible girl, unless she finds someone to flirt with, then she has been known to cop out of her obligations.

Qυιякs:
Image● It's gotten her into trouble numerous times at school, but Sakura sees a dirty or sexual reference in practically everything.

● Sakura flirts with just about every member of the opposite gender, even if she already is in a relationship.

● Always treats members of the opposite sex with contempt

● When she isn't socializing, she is constantly chewing [url]Hubba Bubba Max Strawberry Watermelon chewing gum[/url]


ℓιкεs:

Going on dates
Being a social person, Sakura loves going on dates, whether she likes the guy she's going with or not. She often schedules dates Imagejust to keep herself busy, not enjoying her boring home life very much. She never has paid for a date, nor does she intend to. She is very popular and uses her status as a means of getting whatever she desires.

Flirting
It's fun to flirt, isn't it? Sakura especially loves flirting. She will flirt with just about any cute guy, regardless of his age or whether he has a girlfriend or she has a boyfriend. She is a natural at flirting, sometimes not even realizing she's doing it. It's her favorite hobby, and she is quite skilled in the art.

Sex
She isn't afraid to admit it, she's had it before. She has only slept with one guy, but she is a very sexual person. She likes it, and she Imagedoesn't see anything wrong with a woman being comfortable with their sexuality in this time period. She firmly detests double standards and constantly challenges them. She is comfortable with her body, and isn't ashamed of showing it.


∂islikes:

Girls
Girls pose a threat to her system. She cannot be spoiled by any guy she wants if he is faithful to someone else. She sees all girls as her enemy and only is seen speaking to social outcast females. All of her female friends have some sort of trait that defines them as unattractive to the common male eye. Any girl she deems attractive receives harsh treatment and she treats them with contempt.
Image
Rules
Whether it is curfew, or the legal age of consent, Sakura doesn't like rules dictating what she can or cannot do. She doesn't care if a boy is fourteen, she will flirt with him, but she would also flirt with a thirty year old guy if he was hot. She doesn't like being told what to do, or what she 'should' do, it enrages her and she will almost definitely rebel.

Double Standards
As stated earlier, Sakura hates double standards. She believes in equality, but that doesn't mean she doesn't abuse the perks that some double standards create, like paying for dates. Whether it is nudity, promiscuity, walking alone at night, or even school rules, Sakura does not tolerate someone restricting her human rights because she was born female.

тαℓεηтs:

★ Cooking

★ Singing


ℱєαяѕ:

Being rejected
It hasn't happened yet, but plenty of people have told her it's bound to happen sometime. This is her greatest fear, seeing as she prides herself in her appearance and sexy behavior. She is constantly doing her best to appeal to the Imageopposite sex, doing everything in her power to avoid being turned down.

Someone seeing her real eye color
She was born with a strange eye color, and since she was about four years old she's worn contacts at her own request. No one aside from her parents know, but her eye color is a fairly bright red. Her parents joke around that she is albino due to her eye color and pale white skin tone, but it isn't the case, because she has natural black hair instead of white.

Being raped
Despite being a highly sexual person, she constantly fears that one day her actions will put her in a situation she can't get herself out of. She has taken self defense classes, as Imagewell as Judo, but the fear of being forced into the act against her will is still fairly prominent. Sometimes when she is approached while off guard, she flinches away from a male's advances due to her fear. She knows it is irrational, she's never been raped before, but after the first time she'd survived unwanted sexual harassment she's been paranoid that someone will escalate and sexually assault her one day.




"I'm not flirting, I'm just being extra nice to someone extra attractive. ;)"

Hιsтσяү:
Sakura was born to a middle class family, yet her Father was friends with Narukei's Parents. She spent most of her childhood growing up with Narukei due to the bond their families shared. Despite her family being close to Narukei's, Sakura doesn't know his mother is ill. She isn't certain when it happened, but she's formed somewhat of an obsession when it comes to the brothers, Imagedetermined to win one of them over, regardless of what she has to do to achieve that goal.

When she was around ten years old her and Narukei got 'married' in his back yard under the largest Sakura blossom tree, despite her teasing him she'd never marry a boy that was shorter than her. The two actually kissed, and it was that moment that Sakura knew she had a crush on Narukei. Eventually she met Yukito two years later and became almost equally fond of him, despite the age difference between them.

Then it happened. Narukei finally got a girlfriend. No one in school knew, but one time Sakura saw the two of them together. It crushed her, breaking her heart into a million and she decided to lash out. She began flirting with numerous boys, hoping to make Narukei jealous, but to no effect. Eventually she realized she Imagerather enjoyed flirting, and continued because she liked it, but also because she strived for attention from Narukei. Though for a time, she forgot her infatuation. Shortly before Narukei switched schools Sakura finally landed a boyfriend. She made it public, because he made her forget all of her insecurities, he made her forget Narukei's betrayal of their promise three years before he started dating Shiori. Though apparently Shiori and Narukei broke up a year prior, something changed in Narukei. He wasn't the kind child she remembered. Well, he transferred schools eventually and she spent time with her boyfriend Makoto to keep her mind off of it. Though Freshman year a horrible accident happened. On his way to see Sakura after a huge fight, a drunk driver hit Makoto's bike, and he barely survived. To this day he has been in a coma, and it's been almost three years to the day. Doctors say it's unlikely that he would ever wake up, but his parents remained Imagepersistent. She stayed loyal for an entire year, visiting his hospital room daily, regardless of the weather, but eventually she gave up. She couldn't take seeing him like that, it was destroying her and her life was passing her by each day she sat waiting. She left him a letter in his room describing that they were broken up, in the off chance he woke up.

Now she is a Junior in high school, in the same class as Shiori and Narukei. She plans to try her chances one more time, but also she isn't as serious as she was before. She has no intention of trying to become Narukei's girlfriend anymore, because this time she likes both of the Iyazaki brothers. Yukito has turned into a fine young man, as well as Narukei and she wants to have fun. She doesn't see anything wrong with polygamous relationships, after all it's just high school. Sakura is willing to do anything she can to get Imagetheir attention. Anything. She has ulterior motives, such as prom king and queen votes, but also money. She loves going out, but mostly cannot afford to do so. casually dating one, or both of the brothers would allow her to have more fun and do more social activities like going skating, out to dinner, or seeing a movie.

Sakura had spent today just like any other, texting several guys, flirting non-stop. She left the house when she woke up that morning in hopes of finding a way to kill time, but had no luck for the past few hours. She got breakfast with a cute guy, but that was forever ago, now she was looking for something new to do, and no one was available to hang out, it was a bummer, really. Most of the guys in her contact list were busy with their family or girlfriends, which she understood, but at the moment she was feeling a bit bitter about it. Speaking of her phone, if someone were to get her phone, almost the entire male student body was logged into it. Though she was bored today, none of the guys she texted came up with anything interesting to fill her time. Her family wasn't close enough to do stuff together, in fact, most times they avoided each other all together because her father didn't approve of her behavior. She was close to her mother and grandpa, but they seldom felt like hanging out. She was walking down the street aimlessly, trying to figure out a way to keep herself busy and shoved her long black hair behind her ear as she paced. Today was just so dull, there was nothing to do because it was Sunday, and she was about to go insane from lack of activity. She was a busybody, she had to do something at all times, or else she felt life had no meaning. She almost turned around to go home, but noticed a familiar face in the distance. Yukito-kun! Thank God! I'm saved! She thought to herself enthusiastically, finally finding someone to busy her time for the rest of the day, at least until she had to go home...Well...Hopefully. She didn't think he'd say no, but there was a first time for everything, especially since he seemed to be with a friend. Sakura ran forward, her mood changed entirely now that she had something to look forward to. She had a skip in her step and she was very excited to see him, but was taken by surprise when she found Narukei was the other person with Yukito. She unconsciously paused a few feet from them, taking in the situation. Her eyes widened instantly, stupefied by his presence. It had been years since she last saw Narukei, seeing as visiting Sakura Square would have only brought back bad memories and awkward situations, besides Makoto wouldn't have liked her being there anyway, but now that that was over, she had free reign on where she went.

"Yuki-kun, Naru-kun! It's nice to see you guys! What are you two up to?" She inquired, tilting her head. She received a text, glancing at it, but immediately put her phone in sleep mode, ignoring the guy that was messaging her, he wasn't anything compared to these two after all. She looked to each of them, eyes wide, "Eh!? You're both taller than me now." She stated in surprise, seeing as she hadn't seen Narukei since eighth grade and Yukito seemed to have sprouted up over night. A pout formed on her features, but was quickly replaced with a smile and light laughter, "Mind if I accompany you? I'm so bored.." she whined with puppy dog eyes to both of the boys. It worked when they were kids, but she wasn't sure how effective it would prove now that they were all three a lot older. Four years did a lot to people. Sure she went to school with Yukito, but their grade difference and the fact she had a boyfriend pretty much made them strangers for the past four years. Please say you don't mind, I'm going to die of boredom! She thought to herself, batting her eyelashes, giving them the cutest look she could muster. She would do anything to avoid having to go home and stare at the ceiling right.

Then she finally addressed Yukito directly, "Congratulations on your last album, it's my favorite. All the junior class is talking about it." She complimented, happy that he finally got a job to suit his talents, and put good money in his pocket. She straightened out her light blue dress that matched her eye color, then looked over to Narukei, a warm smile on her face for the first time since he began dating Shiori, "Welcome back to school? You are returning to our school right?" she asked with curiosity. This year was becoming quite more interesting, and to beat it all, today was Sunday. Who would have thought the most boring day of the week would supply such a good plot twist? She was definitely looking forward to this school year now, she had a plan and everything. She would make one of the two Iyazaki boys her's if it was the last thing she did. She heard that their father was getting remarried, but didn't bring it up, it undoubtedly would bring up foul moods, especially since the lucky bride was neither of the boy's mothers. She didn't want to be the buzz kill of the group, they'd never allow her to come with them if she dampened the mood.

A warmth washed over Naru's body as he felt his brother hunch over him for comfort. Slowly he started to sing a song that Naru hasn't heard in ages. It was almost odd hearing and it sort of brought back terrible memories. He'd only sing it in these situations or other bad situations.

"Say, Yu..." Naru twisted his fingers in his own hair and tilted his head to glance over at Yu, changing the subject. "Be honest with me..." He went along with his brothers tugs and rose to his feet, patting on the back of his pants.

But before he could continue with what he wanted to say. His brother wanted to still go shopping. "Hm, yeah sure." Rubbing the back of his neck as he looked away, still letting his brother keep a hold of his hand as they started to walk out of the alleyway.

A voice he was unsure of had called out to them. Without paying much attention and not thinking, Naru did what he had always done with Yu. He gripped his brother's hand tight and jerked him back into his chest. If this were a crazed fan, he would want to be able to protect his brother. Catching him, he stepped to the side of Yu's and still didn't let go of his hand. But once the girl had gotten closer, his grip on his brother faded and he looked at this person a bit surprised.

He knew right away who she was, not by just the eyes, but by everything, though the eyes helped too. It's just how could he ever forget his first love. She was his first in many things, but that's for another time.

She had commented on the brother's heights. Naru wasn't too sure on this, he had always been tall, but at the time, she was pretty tall herself. So I suppose he was considered short. Glancing over at Yu, quietly he was unsure of what to say about her accompanying them, so he left it to him to decide.

He acting puppy face would have got him, but he was a bit use to it by girls. Yet something made him want to agree though he held the urge back and ignore it as best he could. She didn't wait long for a reply before she was talking to Yu and his music. It was amazing music but did every girl have to bring it up? It's just music.

He sighed softly and gave his brother a gentle smile. Some odd reason having this girl here, it felt a bit like they were kids again. It was sort of a nice feeling. Even though, she just got here. Crossing his arms over his chest, he tilted his hip to the side, staring down at her as she now addressed him.

He watched her smiling face and all of a sudden, reality hit him. She and the brothers were no longer kids anymore. This wasn't a dream and she was much older now. They also haven't spoken in a long time, so what was up with this friendly front? In a way, he didn't like it much, but he didn't care either. It was odd.

I'm glad to see her, but... Something about her just felt, different and off. He's been around enough girls to know when he was being played or if they were fakes, so something was there, just what?

Ignoring her question and other things along with not wanting to answer a stupid question. He was after all still wearing the school's uniform. "Actually, Yu, we should hurry up and not leave the pet home alone too long. She isn't house trained yet."

Looking down at Sa, he smiled briefly at her as he walked passed her. "Nice to see you again..." He flashed a charming smile at her as he said her nickname from him when they were kids. "Sa'Sa-Chan." It was a nickname he had given her a long time ago, when he was a child, he couldn't quite get her name right, so over time he gave up and just called her Sa'Sa. One Sa stood for Sassy and the other stood for Sakura. Little Sassy Sakura. She'd always get mad at him for, not being able to say her name.

"Isn't this interesting? The past is still an annoying stalker that won't let go. I don't mind really, because this is why it's very fun when it turns out that the stalker is actually the prey. Who's the prey? Aren't you dumb? Well, I'm looking at it right now."

Yukito knew for a fact that Narukei was going to ask him a question and it was something which required him to be honest. He can't do that right now especially when he has an idea what it could be about. At this very moment, he could never give Narukei a response that is completely true and somehow, he wasn't in the mood to give his older brother any kind of half-assed answers. The best scenario was to avoid it entirely and that's what he did with his usual cheery self by reminding them to go shopping. Well, they can't go back empty-handed, right? They already did say they were going to the store, so they better make that true at the very least even when Narukei simply wanted to be out of the house.

He was certain that the whole idea of having step-sisters and remarrying weren't the main deal for Narukei's temperament. The event today was simply an icing on the cake. There were many layers and at the very core of it all, he wasn't certain what it contains. But, he does have an idea that whatever it is, there's a connection to that phone call Narukei received earlier if his intuition and observation would be anything to go by and he hasn't failed yet in his assumptions. But, he had never once acted on assumption when it comes to Narukei. As much as possible, the relationship between them rarely crosses the boundary of what people normally should expect between brothers, though there are the occasional gestures labeled as a bit intimate. Their interaction in general remains vague especially among themselves.

Didn't Hamtaro (Nemui) said earlier that he and Narukei are really close? It made him wonder how that girl came to that conclusion? Because, if they were really close, he should know everything about his brother even the source of his inner dilemma and that also applies to Narukei. But, it wasn't like that at all. They kept each other at a distance and maintained a relationship which he would describe as of convenience. But one thing is for certain right now, he doesn't mind being with Narukei every time he is about to break. Anyway, their brother moment was interrupted by someone calling out to them. His initial reaction was to take a look and gave a big wave. Well, it's a trained reaction being a pop star and all. But, it was different when Narukei is present.

It was like having a bodyguard for free. He felt the grip on his hand tightened and he was pulled to his older brother's chest as he was a bit ahead. Narukei then stepped to his side as if he was some damsel-in-distress. Well, that's how it felt. But, the tension eased up when the identity of the one who called out them was a familiar one. The grip on his hand faded and he took noticed of Narukei's surprised expression as for him, he gave a bright smile. This person was none other than an old childhood friend and if his memory is correct, Narukei's puppy love as he would like to call it, Sakura Kichiyami.

They do go to the same school, but they are in different grades, activities, and social circles especially when he started into the entertainment world. He rarely goes to school nowadays since he's always at work. So, this would be the first time in a long time since he saw her, a familiar face is a familiar one. "Hi there Sakura-chan!"He greeted as he came out of Narukei's side. "We're playing hide-and-seek! But, it seems you found us, too bad." He noted with complete seriousness with noticeable disappointment on his face. Then, there was the comment about their height. Well, he was technically just an inch taller than her. But, he had been told that he'll still grow more in a few years. He's looking forward to that especially if he could be taller than Narukei. "That's a good thing, don't you think?" He went towards Sakura and then leaned closed enough to her face without warning as if he was about to kiss her especially with the look of his eyes with great focus and unyielding determination. But, he simply took hold of a cherry petal on her hair. "I can get to do this, now." He stated with a wink before releasing the petal to the passing wind.

She then asked if she could come along with them and seeing that Narukei has yet to respond, the decision was left up to him. The puppy dog face tends to work with Narukei and if he remembered, it was Sakura who taught him that expression and he had used it on Narukei on many occasions ever since then. But as she had implied with the height difference, they were not kids anymore. "There's a better way to get what you want Sakura-chan." He ran his fingers through her hair and then grabbed a few strands gently. A meaningful smile was upon his lips as his eyes were no longer of that innocence, but something mature. She did note about his album. "Thank you, continue supporting me, okay?" He stated and to make a point of his appreciation, he placed a kiss at the tips of her hair and released it afterwards.

Then, he looked over his shoulders towards Narukei who didn't answer the question directed at him. Instead, his older brother told him that they should get going since their pet isn't house-trained yet. His radiant smile returned to his face as if he was a child who was about to play with his favorite toy. "Okay, Aniki!" He answered happily as he followed after Narukei after he left a few words to Sakura. His steps having an extra skip to it as he passed Sakura but then turned around much like a dance step. "We'll see you at school tomorrow, Saku-neechan!" He waved at her while reverting to how he used to call her back in the days. There was a reason for that as he gave her a playful wink and then turned his back at her as he continued following Narukei back to Sakura Square.

This was a very eventful Sunday for him. It seemed life would be a bit more entertaining now. He took out another lollipop and placed it in his mouth. Yes, this was indeed an interesting day.

Sakura felt pretty stupid once she realized he was in her school's male uniform, but in her defense, she was more surprised to see him than she was paying attention to his clothing. She didn't beat herself up about it, anyone with their history would have made the same mistake, or worse.

"Nice to see you again... Sa'Sa-Chan."

She blinked for a moment, wondering if she'd imagined it, seeing as he chose to ignore most of what she'd said to him, "You too, Naru-kun.. You'd think you'd know how to say Sakura by now, huh?" She teased him, not actually serious. She didn't like the nickname, but it was actually nice to hear for once... though that didn't stop her from pouting. She'd never once heard him call her Sakura.

"We're playing hide-and-seek! But, it seems you found us, too bad."

"Uhm...Gomenasai? You're bad at hiding then... You might want to practice..." She stated back in utter confusion, unsure of if Yukito was insinuating that she was unwelcome, or if he was actually playing a game with his brother. Though she felt they were all a little too old to play hide and seek...

"That's a good thing, don't you think?"

"Of course it is... You'd never get a girlfriend if you were shorter than me, no matter how cute the two of you are." She replied halfheartedly, not wanting to come on too strong with her flirtations, seeing as the two of them were together, but she couldn't defy her nature entirely.

"I can get to do this, now."

She felt a shift in her heartbeat, eyes scanning Yukito for a hint at his intentions, doubting he would kiss her right in front of his brother, especially since was the only person who knew about their backyard 'marriage' as kids aside from; Narukei, Narukei's parents, and her parents. Yukito wasn't present at the time, but her mother teased Sakura and Narukei about it all the time when she would visit in the past, so Yukito overheard the story quite a few times. She blinked as he pulled a cherry blossom from her hair, giving him a grateful smile, "Thank you, Yuki-kun. I wonder when that got there?" she giggled, not bothered by his approach, other than her eyes shifting around, attempting to decipher his intention. It takes more than that to make me blush, I'm not innocent either, Yukito-kun.. Though she was intrgued, seeing as she didn't expect him to be so forward, they could possibly have fun together, if they played the dance right... but her eyes shifted to Narukei shortly after, he was her original goal.. but playing around with Yuki could be fun, as long as he was willing to tango with her.

"There's a better way to get what you want Sakura-chan."

"I know, but I haven't seen Naru-kun in ages.. " She trailed off in a defeated tone, only to lean in towards Yukito and whisper something in his ear. He started it, it wasn't her fault he triggered the part of her mind that took residence in the gutter, "..Although you're taller than me...Some would argue that it would be inappropriate for me to use my other persuasive methods on you, considering our age difference, ne..?" she stated in a more mature, hushed tone than she'd used prior when she first approached the duo. Shiori made sure to whisper the last part to Yukito so Narukei couldn't hear

"Thank you, continue supporting me, okay?"

Her eyes widened a bit as he kissed her hair, but she didn't blush at the act. In fact, she simply giggled at the gesture and smiled brightly at him, "Of course. I was so happy when I found out you became an idol." She was genuine about that, Yukito always had talent, she was glad he got to share it with so many people.. He deserved something nice in his life, other than his connection with his brother, though she wasn't sure how well that was going these days... She assumed it was at least decent, considering they were out and about together.

"Actually, Yu, we should hurry up and not leave the pet home alone too long. She isn't house trained yet."

"Do you guys have a dog or something..?" Sakura asked in curiosity, tilting her head. She wondered what kind of animal these two very different boys would agree upon, and she could think of very few animals after both were considered. It brought another giggle out, and she wiped her eye a bit, "Fine, fine, you guys win. I guess I'll head home then.." She added, seeing as she wasn't welcomed to join them. She never overstayed her welcome. If she wasn't wanted, she was fine with leaving. She'd just have to find another way to occupy her night. She'd have to text some more of average, boring guys at school, but it beat studying.. It wasn't like she needed to anyway, most school work came natural. Listening in class was usually all Sakura required.

"Okay, Aniki!"

Apparently Yukito really liked their new pet, it was a bit heartwarming really, so she just watched the boys as they walked away. She'd have other opportunities to flirt with them, so she wasn't allowing herself to take this denial too personally, despite how much it already began to sting her pride. They were the only boys she'd ever met that ever told her no, it was annoying, but it was also what made her more interested. The other guys... She'd toss her contact list out the window if Narukei or Yukito asked her to... More likely for Narukei, considering their history.. but judging by his response to her, that's all they were...history...

"We'll see you at school tomorrow, Saku-neechan!"

She blinked a bit, tilting her head. Saku-neechan? He used to call me that... but.. Why now? Old times sake? She was baffled, but just sighed, a pout forming on her face seeing as she'd just gotten blown off, "You guys are so mean sometimes!" she called to them in the distance half playfully and half serious, shaking her head afterwards. As if her day wasn't going bad enough, she got turned down as well? UGH! She waved back, scurrying off, it was getting dark and she didn't want to be caught outside on her own. A lot of weirdos began wandering the streets after the streetlights came on, and that was already the case.

Thankfully she made it home safely with little more than a few cat calls, and she went straight to her room, collapsing on her bed in a state of depression. She felt as though she was barely noticed, especially by Narukei, at least Yukito-san treated her like a girl, he even flirted a little! She stared at her ceiling, letting out a sigh. Sundays suck...

He chuckled when he heard what Sa shouted about the brothers being mean. And it was then that it hit him. Maybe he could use her against Shi, seeing as he is playing dumbly about knowing her. Maybe this could work?

"I been thinking." Naru started to say as they reached the shop and collected things for dinner and weekly food. "Maybe I'll start working soon."

He wanted to help his mother as best as he could. She was starting to run out of money to pay for her hospital stay. All that was left was for him to do a job that could bring in money somehow. It wasn't like he could live the life of his parents or kid brother. He hated crowds of people. Besides the job he was thinking about wasn't going to last long, just temporally. Maybe longer, he has been wanting to move out for quite a while now.

Living at home was nice and relaxing, but now that his dad got remarried he doesn't see much of a relaxing future for himself. It's already been a day and he has been slapped and yelled at. It was nothing but a huge drag from a crazy ex-girlfriend who keeps photos of him for black mail. "Yu-chan, make sure you are no one's first. They end up going crazy on you." He stuck his tongue out at his brother, but he was very honest about it. Or maybe he just had very bad luck with women his own age. Younger girls seem to love him and older women fawn over him. It's just girls his around his age that turn out to be crazy.

Paying for the food along with some sweets for Yu, it was at this time he remembered that he didn't get anything from Ne about what she wanted from the store. Nor was he sure of what Shi would want, not that it mattered, she ran out of the house leaving her sister behind. Childish irresponsible brat. He thought as he smiled at the cashier, she blushed and looked down, hiding her face behind the bill of her hat. Yeah, he still got it.

As they walked home, Naru was mostly quiet, apart from mumbling while he sang. He didn't have a bad voice, it's just he never liked singing in front of many people. The only difference between his brother and himself, while singing, Naru's voice was a lot deeper. Many times his father told him to join the singing business, but it just wasn't for Naru, he wasn't like his family, but more like his mother. They go with the flow type of people, keeping to themselves and just moving along.

When he finished the song, they reached the house and the sound of the T.V in the living room was very noted. She had made herself at home and started to watch T.V. Naru chuckled as he unlocked the door with his keep and slowly came inside, throwing his hand up to make sure Yu was quiet too.

He handed Yu the bags softly and slowly walked up behind Ne as she was engrossed in the show on the couch. "Ne-Chan!" Naru hugged her tightly, wrapping his arms around her body making sure to keep her arms pinned so she wouldn't hit him. He smiled rubbing his cheek against she squishy cute cheek. "Thank Goodness you are safe. I was so worried. Being home alone is never fun, I should have taken you with. Aniki is sorry." He noticed her eyes and how they were slightly still wet a bit. Either it was the show that made her cry or being alone, he wasn't too sure. So he did what any big bro would do and climbed over the couch scooting her forward and sitting behind her, still hugging her. "Did you know that Yu-Chan is a very good cook? Yu-Chan! Make us something! We're hungry." Naru pouted as he glanced over at him, leaning his head against Ne's.

He only said this because, one he didn't want to cook and two, he was cozy right where he was, even if she didn't like it, he wasn't bound to let go. "So whatcha watching? It looks good."

"School has finally began. As they say, this is the most fun in a youth's life. So, I'm ready to see what kind of fun awaits me, especially this year. There are a lot of different prospects and toys to play with. It seems I will indeed have a busy year, but not that I mind at all."

A few rays of the sun managed to enter through the silken curtains hanging in his room. The warmth which managed to splatter across his face stirred the sleeping occupant to the awaken world. Eyes of brown fluttered open as it were immediately covered by an arm. There was no doubt that it was morning and waking up was truly a hard thing to do for Yukito in an essence. It was really not easy to wake him up as well. However, he does have things to do for the day and matters to attend to. it may not appear to be obvious at first sight due to his rather carefree and playful demeanor, but he was a rather responsible person who sticks by his duties making him a truly reliable man.

Taking a deep breath, he removed the arm on his face and raised himself to a sitting position. He rubbed his eyes a bit to shake off some sandman's dusts there. Then, he casually glanced to his bedside clock where his cellphone could be found near it. Looking at the clock, he still has some time to prepare for school. He took his phone and skimmed through the notifications it had. There were a lot of missed calls from Haruko and some messages from his known acquaintances from work, like fellow entertainers and some journalists asking for interviews. It seemed that the news about him going to a motel in the night was picked up. That was not surprising especially when he is one of the top leading entertainers out there. Well, he'll take care of that in due time. He released a yawn and put away his phone for now.

He removed the blankets covering him as it revealed that he was wearing a rather large t-shirt exposing much of his skin in a rather sexy manner matched with very baggy jogging pants. Actually, these were not his clothes but of Narukei's. He uses his older brother's clothes as his pajamas. It seemed that there was quite the difference still in his and his older brother's physique. But, he was not overly concerned about it as he would catch up to it soon enough. He stood from her bed and stretched his limbs for a good whole minute before deciding to take out his school uniform from his closet. It had been a while since he attended the school like any other kids around his age. Moreover, it is the first day of classes usually he would appear during the middle of the semester since he's busy and all.

Grabbing a towel, he made himself towards the bathroom and fixed himself up there. The cold water was enough to fully wake him up. It seemed that he will be having a long day ahead of him. But, it doesn't mean that he will not be enjoying himself as always. When he was done, he left the bathroom with only a towel around his waist. It seemed to slip his mind that there were others in the house. His wet hair clung to his face which defined his sophisticated cheekbones. His naked body shimmered from the water droplets showcasing his musculature. If anyone would see him right now, he looked awfully manly. It was a far cry from how he usually looks like with a rather devilish and playful presence.

His hand swept back some of the strands falling on his face as he walked through the hallways. It was then he recalled that he actually have girls living in the house. That was not a problem in his personal opinion. It was not like anything would be damaged if they look or even touch. In addition to that, he had complete confidence that those girls would just looked away in embarrassment as those two were inclined to the idea of being a family. With that idea, his eyes suddenly had darkness in it before returning to its usual brightness. He released a sigh and then returned to his room so, that he could get ready. It's fine to be fashionably late, but he was never like that at all. He was never late for anything in his life apparently even if he did project himself to be nonchalant in how he treats everything and everyone else.

Once done, Yukito was prepared for the day with his hair already dry and his uniform modified to his taste. He walked along the hallways without bothering taking time to see if the girls were up and about. In the end, it was not his duty to do that, even if they were about to be his step-sisters in the near future. The word family does not mean much to him in grandest views. Of course, he has reasons for that, but it would not be easily divulged anytime soon why is that. Anyway, he left the house without having breakfast and that was nothing new at all. He usually does that and soon hailed a cab. Once inside, he took the moment to answer his now ringing phone. "Ohayou Haruko-chan!" He cheerfully greeted while on the other line it was clear that she was clearly upset and in panic. Comically, he put his phone away from his ear because if he doesn't he would be deaf in a few seconds.

The driver in front seat noticed this gesture in which Yukito simply smiled at. When he was certain that Haruko had managed to blurt all of her frustrations at him, he returned the phone to his ear. "I'll just tell the truth, Haruko-chan." He then had a mischievous smile on his lips when Haruko queried what was the truth. "You'll see. Anyway, I'll call you back. I'm at school now. Bye-bye!" He then ended the call without hearing Haruko's response at the same time the cab stopped before the gates of his school. After paying the driver, he stepped out and was immediately welcomed by the amorous, envious, and curious eyes of the student body. Well, that is just how it is for him. "Good morning Yukito-kun!" He looked to his side where a group of girls flocked around him instantly. Time to work as usual, he smiled at them brightly. "Good morning, everyone! How was your vacation?" And that's how his day had started.

Nemui woke up on her own taking her time to get ready. She stared at her glasses for a few minutes before shoving contacts in. She put her spring/summer uniform on hesitantly, seeing as she took a shower the night before and before she knew it she found herself on the train that brought her near her school. She walked a mile or two and eventually saw the cherry blossoms ahead. She was close. Very close. Several female students passed by, conversing with one another and talking about boys. They didn't even notice Nemui, it was like she didn't even exist. She was used to it, but sometimes, she craved friends, female friends that were not her sister. She wanted to go places, to do things, to talk about boys and to eventually date a boy. Yet.... it seemed she'd graduate alone as ever.. without nothing more than a yearbook picture to prove she'd attended this high school at all..

Nemui didn't realize it at first, but she arrived shortly after Yukito. She made it to school just in time to catch the sight of a horde of girls surrounding him in admiration. She stared for a second, blinking in surprise. She knew he was popular, but some of those girls were seniors, and highly sought after to beat it all. She didn't let her thoughts, nor her eyes, linger on him for long. The last thing she wanted was for someone to realize that there was something between them. She couldn't let it dawn upon the other students that SHE was one of his new sisters that the rumors on TV spoke about. Before her tormentors located her, Nemui decided it was best for her to move along, but to no avail.

"O-ow!!" Her tone was soft as always, but the pain was evident. Just as she made her way towards the school, Nemui found herself on the ground. Her attempt to flee only brought her to get shoved to the ground by Sakura sooner than she would have been. Nemui dropped her bag and her books during the fall, attempting to catch herself, but she only skidded her palms and her knees against the concrete walkway. Thankfully Nemui wasn't wearing her glasses for once, because they would have flown off of her face from the force of Sakura's push. The contacts she was wearing came in handy, but they didn't prevent her from getting scraped up knees. They immediately began bleeding, but Nemui forced herself to sit up onto her stinging knees. She picked up her books and her school bag then proceeded towards the school as if nothing happened. She'd have to make roll call before she could ask to be excused to see the nurse, because no one would vouch for her and alert the teacher to her situation.. No one who was kind enough to do so knew of her existence. She wasn't aesthetically pleasing like Shiori, Yukito, and Narukei, so people didn't notice her like they did those three... She was pretty invisible, except to her bullies who selectively chose to see her. They apparently had some sort of radar that was able to locate her whenever they wanted..

She would just have to let her leg bleed for now. She made it to her class, in the same as Yukito, though that wasn't a surprise. She was in Yukito's class since they were in kindergarten. She remembered him, and he seemed to vaguely remember her, which was more than she could say for most of her classmates. Most of them didn't even recognize her a week after interacting with them, let along years in the same classroom without social contact. The fact she looked familiar to him, even though he couldn't directly place her, well it was a compliment to the unfortunate wallflower known as Nemui Santioa. She took a seat in the back, looking at her leg after sitting down. It would definitely need disinfected, and bandaged up. Getting shoved on the concrete did her no justice.

Sakura was just a few feet away when Yukito was surrounded by a mob of girls. She crinkled her nose at their pathetic behavior. They swarmed him like pathetic animals craving attention, desperately searching for any kind of attention as long as they got it. It caused her to shake her head, and she simply shoved Nemui out of her way so she could clear a path and be on her own way to class. She had a lot in common with those girls that swarmed Yukito, but they had one fatal difference. Sakura had dignity. She wouldn't stoop as low as ripping her heart out and handing it to a man. She craved the attention of the Iyazaki brothers, but she wouldn't willingly give either one of them the key to her heart so easily, "See you later, Yukito-kun..." She called to him, although not in a desperate tone, it was calm, collected,and flirtatious. Not to mention it sounded more like a promise than an offer.

She made it to her classroom, which turned out to be the same one as Shiori and Narukei. She sat down on the opposite side of the room from Shiori, but still in the back row. She didn't like to be called on by the teacher, and would prefer to spend her day texting guys, especially if Narukei and Yukito were going to keep treating her like an outsider. She'd wait for them to approach her this time, seeing as she stuck her hand out towards them, only to get burnt.

She had a reputation to uphold and would not be seen pursuing anyone, especially if they had an ego nearly as large as her own. She ran a hand through her long black hair, sighing a bit since it was so early in the day. Eventually her friends poured into the classroom. One was a rather plump and short girl with vibrant pink hair, named Michiru Shinamori and the other was a tall, slim girl with short ebony hair and dark eyes hidden behind large thick rimmed glasses. There wasn't a lot to the second girl, other than a cute face. Her name was Rin Fujioka These were Sakura's friends, because Sakura knew neither of them were any competition to her. Neither girl surpassed her in popularity, charm, or physical appearance.

Rin was smart and despite her nerdy tendencies, gave good advice and Michiru on the other hand was fun to be around, despite being rather air headed and occasionally annoying. Sakura saw uses in both of them and occasionally she would throw them a bone and introduce them to guys she was no longer interested in, though the relationships never lasted very long with Michiru or Rin, considering after the guys dated Sakura.. they weren't really interested in dating the other two. One could say that Sakura was a bad friend, and she was, but these girls probably knew that. They just didn't want to lose her friendship. Each thought they were using Sakura more than she was using them, but both of them were wrong. Sakura had them in her grasp and wasn't letting them go any time soon. They were the only two girls in the entire school that she felt were worth being in her presence, and she wasn't willing to sacrifice their 'usefulness' for anything. She would sabotage anything that dared to separate them, regardless of what it would mean for Rin or Michiru's future. Sakura was...selfish.

The two girls approached in their typical clueless manner, sitting down in front and diagonal from her, considering the spot NEXT to Sakura was ALWAYS reserved for a guy. What guy? It would just depend. She pretended to listen to Rin and Michiru as they spoke of their vacation, but she didn't really care. She began to wait, turning down nerdy or unattractive prospects. She wasn't going to let just ANYONE sit next to her. That would be a waste of the year! She had to start this year off right, and she wasn't going to let someone unsightly ruin her first day by forcing their presence upon her.

Image Image "Pardon me Headmaster, but we will have to finish this next time. Class is about to start soon." Naru smile politely as he stacked the papers neatly on the Headmaster's desk.

"Yes, and be sure you come back tomorrow morning much earlier. I'll need your help then too." He shoo'ed Naru away as Naru bowed and stepped out of the room, closing the door behind him.

With a sigh, he narrowed his eyes. The old man got annoying sometimes, but none the less he couldn't say no to him. Naru owed the guy a lot and this was his way of paying his debt. Heading to class Naru kept an emotionless face on. Not that there was a reason to show any emotion, he actually felt content for now. That was until he reached the classroom. Not taking too long he scanned the desks and noticed familiar faces. Shi, he didn't let his eyes linger and just scanned over her. Mich was speaking to Rin about something he couldn't hear while Sa-Sa was just listening to them, or not. He wasn't too sure about the matter.

Making his way down an empty row he slipped himself into the empty seat next to Sa-Sa. Staying on the other side of the room away from Shi, was the best he could do. Laying his chin and cheek into the palm of his hand he gave off a charming look to his face. "Good morning, you don't mind if I sit here do you, Sa-Sa Chan? Plus..." He shifts in the seat, sitting upright. "I'm sorry about yesterday night. I'll make it up to you. Would that be alright?" He gave her a sweet smile.

The pink haired girl blushed shyly and whispered to Rin. Rin just nodded and didn't say much back, but had a blush too. They kept quiet after that and tried their best, not to eye Naru, the school's Prince. He chuckled softly, his perfect teeth show a bit. Her friends reminded him of Ne-Chan in a way, it was rather cute to him.

Glancing back at Sa-Sa he leaned over, sliding her hair back and softly whispering into her ear. "You've grown." Was all he said before he pulled away and sat comfortably in the seat, playing with a pen he had brought with him. He didn't bring much other than that pen and a leather folder with paper in it for notes of all kinds. He didn't bother with books, he'd always read them ahead of time and remember them quite well after that. So all was left for him to do was take notes and just do the work. Easy right? For him it was.

His phone went off with that familiar ringtone. As he checked it, his eyes became soft. His mom was wishing him luck in school and to have a good day. He doubted the good day part but was thankful for the text, sending her a good day back and then turning his phone to vibrate after. This was all done inside his desk so no eyes would linger and read.

"Haha! Just as we would expect from the Prince. Girls always text you. Shame on you!" A male came up to Naru, hanging himself around his neck and snickering. He was nice looking no doubt. Jock, short hair and tall, almost Naru's height but not quiet. He's the guy always trying to get Naru to join the basketball club, but that won't happen.

Naru put his phone away as he closed his eyes and kept a soft smile on. "I won't join the club Jordan. I can't find the time to make it. I'm a very busy person. Forgive me, okay?"

"Tsk! You're always busy. At least think more about it instead of just saying no." Jordan hugged Naru tighter.

"Even if I do, I am sure that the answer is still no, no matter how much I think about it. I'm sorry, you'll have to find someone else for the time being." Naru patted the guys arm softly. "Now, sit down. Class will be starting soon. You don't want to get into trouble before the big game."

"Haha. Alright, Alright." Letting go he sat right beside to Naru, blocking his view of Shi, which was good. It was enough having to go home. this relaxed him a bit more.

She noticed that Sakura Kichiyami was present in the room now, and Shiori took out her ear buds. Sakura quickly became the 'top girl' of the school after Narukei dumped Shiori. Though it wasn't really a fair fight. Shiori was still struggling from the break up, and Sakura usurped her throne and even stole her friends. Michiru and Rin were once Shiori's friends, and she honestly treated them much better than Sakura did. Shiori didn't feel sorry for the two girls that typically followed the long ebony haired girl, in fact she felt they deserved the treatment they got. They were nothing more than traitors who clung to popular girls hoping that a good guy would notice them, when in fact Sakura would never let that happen. How sad, they don't even realize that this pretty face is actually their puppet master... stupid bitches... Shiori mused to herself in her head, a small smile forming as she appreciated Sakura's appearance. She was beautiful, Shiori could give her that, but her attitude was foul. She was one of Nemui's main tormentors. She was tempted to cross the room, and kick Sakura's ass for the umpteenth time since middle school, but Rin and Michiru entered the room.

She sighed as the two girls ran to Sakura like clumsy, dumb little puppies. They were practically wagging their tails and couldn't wait to report to Sakura. They behaved the same way when they were in her circle, the only difference was that Shiori actually paid attention to their pitiful summer and winter vacation tales. She leaned her face on her palm as she listened in, but didn't make it so obvious. Shiori stared at the front of the room, listening in to each little detail. Apparently Rin spent her vacation in the mountains and a hot guy caught her when she nearly fell down a flight of stairs. It would have been an interesting prospect, had she actually remembered to grab his name, or even his phone number. She was such an idiot for a girl who reserved the #2 spot as far as grades went in their class.. Michiru on the other hand had no great story to tell, at least romantically. All she spoke about was how she'd lost five pounds, which was great, but it wasn't like Rin or Sakura were giving her proper support. All three of those girls were stuck on their personal gain..

Then it hit her. She was so stuck on getting her revenge... that she never even stopped to ask Yukito why he'd feel compelled to help her in that endeavor. Why would he help someone attempt to emotionally hurt his brother? Even if it was simply revenge, why would he do it? He barely knew her, he had more money than he could ever possibly need... what was the purpose? Nemui was better at these deductions, and honestly she was already making herself get a headache with these basic questions. How was I ever the It girl of the school when I barely understand other people at all? She asked herself, completely baffled. Though now she couldn't get her mind off of Yukito's involvement.

She noticed that Sakura was turning down multiple guys who attempted to sit with her. Sakura really had a lot of nerve, she wasn't even being civil. Each guy took another seat and was completely humiliated, "You don't have to break others down to feel pretty Sakura, though I guess you have to do something... All the MAC cosmetics and perfume in the world won't cover up the horrendous stench of your rotten heart...or has it finally finished decomposing? I think anyone around could say you're a heartless bitch." She gave the darker haired girl a fake smile, turning her attention to the front after a roar of laughter from their classmates, much to Sakura's irritation she was sure. Though Shiori's victory didn't last long. Shiori rolled her eyes. Karma really can be a bitch...

"Good morning, you don't mind if I sit here do you, Sa-Sa Chan?

Like clockwork, shortly after she finished saying her piece to Sakura, Narukei came in and made a beeline for the ebony haired wannabe Queen Bee. and as if he almost heard her, which she was certain that he didn't, he went and sat with Sakura. She ran a hand through her hair. Almost as if he was coming to her rescue, Shiori saw a boy pass by her, pulling his desk next to hers.

"Shi-chii.. I need help with this question!" The boy was blocking her view of outside, not that she was looking out the window anymore.. She instantly grew irritated with his whiny tone and loud voice. Instead of instinctively slugging him, she resorted to swatting him in the face with her workbook to shut him up.

"Ow!" whined Tsubasa, her childhood friend. He had unruly navy blue hair and piercing silver eyes, but was fairly short for his age. Tsubasa stood at about five foot and seven inches, and he wasn't very good at academics, or sports, or anything really. He was subpar at anything he attempted.. He was....below average with average looks, "Nice to see you too, Shi-chi... I take it your vacation didn't go well.." He replied back with a mumble, leaning his head on her shoulder lazily. Normally she would decline, but the warmth his head gave off was somewhat calming.

"Fine... here's my book..Just make sure to miss a few..." she slid it over onto Tsubasa's desk and he instantly began copying her work. She wasn't stupid, she got passing grades, most of the time. She got B's when Nemui helped her, and this book had all the right answers, because Nemui actually did the homework inside of it for her... Though Shiori begged her not to, Nemui was occasionally quite stubborn.

"Haha! Just as we would expect from the Prince. Girls always text you. Shame on you!"

Shiori could hear the words of Jordan, and they stung, but she kept her eyes focused on the front of the room. She ignored their presence all together, well, at least she put up the façade that she was ignoring them. Just what kind of person had he become? She was half curious and half enraged by it. How could someone change so drastically in just a few years? No matter how much she wanted to drop it, she couldn't. She wanted to waltz over and punch Jordan in the face, but she promised Yukito she'd try to use her head more. Besides....she wasn't looking forward to finding out what he meant by his threat the night before about kissing her. It instantly brought a knot to her throat, and she sighed to herself.

"I won't join the club Jordan. I can't find the time to make it. I'm a very busy person. Forgive me, okay?"

"Tsk! You're always busy. At least think more about it instead of just saying no."

Club? What club? If it involves loyalty and dedication...count him out Jordan. He doesn't have a shred of decency in him... He fooled me too once. If you're smart, you'll run while you can. She thought to herself, closing her eyes, but instantly had her workbook smacked against her face. She shoved Tsubasa away, immediately getting pissed, but he raised his hands in surrender. She didn't have much time to react after that because he moved his chair back in front of her, because the teacher walked in. The stern woman wasn't ready to begin the class, but she couldn't behave the same way in front of the teacher... She'd get kicked out of class.

"Even if I do, I am sure that the answer is still no, no matter how much I think about it. I'm sorry, you'll have to find someone else for the time being. Now, sit down. Class will be starting soon. You don't want to get into trouble before the big game."

"Haha. Alright, Alright."

She let out a sigh, leaning back in her class, glancing next to her at her friend Mimi. The girl smiled once she realized Shiori was looking at her, and Shiori instantly felt better. Mimi's bright and bubbly attitude always brightened Shiori's mood. She might even help her endure Narukei's presence. Though he seemed to be doing perfectly fine ignoring her... How is Narukei such a heartless asshole!? She reach over and flicked Mimi on the forehead, sticking her tongue out at the shorter girl. Focusing on Mimi was the only thing that kept her from crying again.

"I have to be a responsible pet owner, right? That is why I will be taking care of my new pets. Hamtaro? I did tell her in advance. So, I can't be blamed for what is about to happen next. School has never been this fun. I will give you that."

Entertaining other people comes easy to Yukito. It is also why he had no second thoughts about becoming a public figure when he took the career as a pop star and idol. Adding to that, he had been acting every day of his life anyway and to make it work, he must have always an audience. That is why being surrounded by them, he felt completely at ease unlike his older brother who despises crowds. He was preferably the more sociable one between them either in real time or not. But, he must say the crowd around him seemed to have multiplied since the last time he appeared at the school. Granted, he was not technically absent most of the times. He was not even present during his middle-school graduation too, since there was work.

This number was probably the response to his MIA status. Even more so, he could hear some of the girls saying he now look more cooler than before and something along those lines. It seemed he had grown away from their ogling eyes. There were also some guys in the crowd capturing his attention, classmates of his apparently. They seemed want to gain recognition and instant popularity by attaching themselves to him, by being in his inner circle. If there was even like that to begin with, they would need to get in line just behind his family. In any case, he greeted them with his ever cheerful smile. Some even blushed seeing it and the effect was not only limited among the females. It extended to the males as well. No matter, he responded to them with small talks before the first bell rang signifying classes were to start in a few minutes.

"Time for classes, minna-san!" He announced energetically while the people around sighed in disappointment and pouted as well. "Don't worry, I'll catch up with you all later." That was then he heard a familiar voice passing by while calling out his name. His eyes took only a moment to know who it was. It was none other than Sakura and he took note of her tone. "See ya, Kichiyami-senpai!" That's all he said with that playful smile of his as he waved the others bye-bye for now before going to his own homeroom which he could see hadn't changed that much even if he is technically a freshman now in a different building. He noticed all of his classmates' gazes on him but more than that, he could see their true intentions. They wanted for him to seat beside one of them.

That could be arranged, but he has other plans. His eyes landed on a very familiar face. They were indeed in the same class. It was rather convenient in more ways than one. He approached his very own Hamtaro. "Hey there, Nemui-chan!" This was what he only said but, it was enough to gain the entire class' attention rippled with disbelief and confusion. It seemed that this was the only time they considered that there was indeed a person named Nemui in the room. His eyes reflected nothing but simply cheerfulness that it was hard to discern whether he had other things in mind or was just simply being nice. Anyway, he did not give Nemui much time to respond as he noticed that she seemed to be interested on her leg.

His eyes shifted to that and something red caught his sight. It seemed she scraped her knees. He could only guess that she fell along the way or something. Clumsy, isn't she or is this would be the bullying pattern he had heard of. Whatever the case was, he looked behind him in time for the homeroom teacher to enter and asked everyone to sit down as classes were about to begin. "Sensei!" He raised his hand and called for the elderly man's attention. "Oh, Iyazaki-kun! It's nice to see you're finally able to attend the first day of classes. Take any seat you want." Yukito smiled at this. "I have free time and thanks. Nee, Hashimoto-Sensei, I'll be taking Nemui-chan to the infirmary." The teacher looked at the girl which he was talking about. "She isn't feeling well. I'll take her, okay?" Hashimoto had a thoughtful look on his face and gave an approving nod. "All right then, I will leave her in your hands, Iyazaki-kun."

Permission granted. He looked back at Nemui. "Let's go princess." That statement of his was enough to deliberate what he was about to do. He grabbed Nemui's arm to make her stand and without a wasted movement, she now would find herself in his arms. It was not hard to see that everyone looked at them in surprise, confusion, and jealousy in which the latter was directed at Nemui solely. "Later, Sensei!" He noted while ignoring the looks they were receiving because of his actions as he further secured Nemui into his arms. When they were out the door, he leaned his lips close to her ears and whispered. "Don't move too much, Nemui-chan, I wouldn't want you to fall now." He then pulled away with a playful wink. They traveled along the hallways which were now rather empty except for those few stragglers or latecomers whom were taken aback by what they were witnessing. It was like a scene out of a movie or something.

Well despite that, they had managed to arrive at the infirmary where the school doctor looked at them with curiosity and worry. "What happened to her, Iyazaki-kun!?" This was what the female doctor welcomed them with. "Good morning Rio-sensei! Oh, she just scraped her knees." He noted in a nonchalant voice with a small smile as he finally put her down on the nearby bed. "You scared me carrying her like that...". Rio stated while releasing a sigh and then took a look at Nemui's injury. It was bleeding a bit, but all it needed was disinfection and then put up some bandage over it. She'll be good as new. "I'll just need to clean it and get some bandages on it. What happened to you?" The doctor queried while getting some antiseptic and bandages.

Afterwards, Rio playfully commented while beginning treatment on Nemui's knees. "I've never seen Iyazaki-kun carry anyone like that before. That's awfully sweet of him." She then casually glanced at Yukito who was simply standing there as he observed the two girls. "Well..." He started with a thoughtful look before looking at Nemui. Then, those eyes of his soften to a degree. It seemed he has an answer to that implied question of the school doctor. "It's because she's very special to me." He said in a rather endearing manner while a placid and sweet smile was on his lips. No one can say if he was joking or serious, because right now that expression of his was like of lover's.

"You don't have to break others down to feel pretty Sakura, though I guess you have to do something... All the MAC cosmetics and perfume in the world won't cover up the horrendous stench of your rotten heart...or has it finally finished decomposing? I think anyone around could say you're a heartless bitch."

She was about to say something to Narukei's ex-bitch, but she chose not to, seeing as almost immediately after the has-been spoke up, her ex boyfriend came and sat down with Sakura instead of her and the dark haired girl gave Shiori a smug smirk when she knew Narukei wasn't looking. Suck it, Shiori. Your boyfriend is mine now~ M-i-n-e....

"Good morning, you don't mind if I sit here do you, Sa-Sa Chan? Plus..."

Sakura's eyes widened a bit, and was slightly surprised by the friendly air that Narukei was giving off, but she wasn't going to complain. He came to her, which was more than she expected. Though that annoying nickname would have to go, eventually. She'd let it go for now, but eventually she would force that nickname into extinction, "I don't mind..Naru-kun" She replied back, batting her eyelashes a few times showing her surprise. Her voice was kind, but flirtatious undertones were carefully embedded in her words as well.

"I'm sorry about yesterday night. I'll make it up to you. Would that be alright?"

"Hmm.. I'm interested.." She replied in a smooth and mature tone, leaning toward Narukei, crossing one leg over the other. Her blue eyes glanced his form in the uniform, admiring him for a minute before allowing herself to continue, "What do you have in mind...? These two are living vicariously off of me, so do tell.." this time her voice was far more seductive. She obviously knew that she was attractive, and was also playing with Michiru and Rin. The two girls were blushing like crazy when he arrived, but Sakura was almost certain if she kept flirting with Narukei, and he played along, Michiru and Rin would invent a new shade of red. The two shyer girls were blushing an almost insane shade of red as they watched Sakura and Narukei interact. Though not even Sakura saw the next thing coming. Something rare happened. Something that she hadn't done since Makoto was conscious.

"You've grown."

She shivered as his fingers brushed her hair aside, and his breath tickled her ear. The words registered loud and clear, and they actually repeated in her mind about five times before her body reacted. It was a bit delayed, but she withdrew from Narukei, blushing a bright pink. She wasn't sure what he meant. Did he mean it innocently? Was he simply referring to her height or was it something more forward? Was he talking about her more feminine features? She was almost dying to know, but kept her concerns to herself. Aside from her blush, she gave no indication that he'd shaken her confidence.

"So mean to refuse these girls a vicarious flirtationship." she playfully teased Narukei, but grew quiet as she realized he was answering a text of some sort. She felt a bit jealous, but she sent more texts than he could possibly type in a day, so she dropped it. She wasn't going to live by double standards.. though she couldn't shake the jealousy. Just who is more important than me? She couldn't help but feel a bit envious.

"Haha! Just as we would expect from the Prince. Girls always text you. Shame on you!"

Then someone else stole him away. She wasn't sure who this guy was, but he was another distraction as far as Sakura was concerned. She wanted to glare at him, but that would get her nowhere. Wait.. she did know who this guy was. He wasn't one of her guys, but she knew of him. He was on the basketball team with a few of the guys she casually dated. She had to be careful. She chose the guys she dated carefully, never picking two guys from the same circle of friends. Though with Narukei and Yukito, it was hard to tell who would be in their circle.

"I won't join the club Jordan. I can't find the time to make it. I'm a very busy person. Forgive me, okay?"

"Tsk! You're always busy. At least think more about it instead of just saying no." Jordan hugged Naru tighter.

She listened to the two of them, but couldn't help thinking that she'd throw this guy a bone. She couldn't help it. Seeing Narukei play basketball...? She wouldn't miss that for the world. She would definitely try to help this guy convince Narukei to join the team....even if it meant she'd lose a few guys on her contact list, "Why not Naru-kun? I'll join the cheerleading squad if you become a basketball player."

Immediately the entire room's attention was on the two of them. The most popular guy in school, well, second most popular guy in school (behind Yukito but that's an unfair comparison..) was just told if he joined the Basketball team that the MOST popular girl in school would prance around in a skimpy skirt and belly shirt top? Of course it stirred a lot of attention, from both the male and female populace. Now no one would leave the topic alone.

"Even if I do, I am sure that the answer is still no, no matter how much I think about it. I'm sorry, you'll have to find someone else for the time being. Now, sit down. Class will be starting soon. You don't want to get into trouble before the big game."

"Haha. Alright, Alright."

Though now the topic was the talk of the class, she doubted anyone would drop it, at least not today. She turned to face Michiru and Rin, winking at the girls who smiled back at her. She saw the teacher come in, and class finally began, much to her disappointment. She wanted to talk to Narukei a bit more, but apparently it would have to wait until lunch time... unless he felt like talking in class. If they were quiet, they could get away with it.. seeing as they were in the back of the room.

Image Image Opening his leather folder, he wrote on the edge of the paper a little message and slid it to the edge of his desk so that Sa-Sa would see it. Clearing his throat as he shifted in his seat once teacher started to talk, just to get her attention.

"It'll be easier if you told me what you had in mind. Instead of me. After all, I am making it up to you, not myself." The note read. "If you ever think of something, here's my E-Mail... N.I.Zaki@Yipolo_com" (Note: Email is not real. It's fake for the R.P)

During class, the teacher spent most of his time giving us all one long lecture. It felt too long and a waste of time. Then decided to play a short film during the last 30 minutes of class, but just before he could play the movie, he was called out of the classroom and just told us all to self-study. Like that will ever happen. He had a classroom almost full of idiots and slackers. There would most likely be one or two students who would study, and the rest will form groups and gossip. None of which Naru was interested in.

Getting up from his desk, he walked over to the teachers desk and sat down. Opening one of the drawers he pulled out a leather seating chart and started to mark down who sat where. This was normally done during the beginning of the class, but the teacher had forget. Naru's job was to help him remember, or just help in general, that's the main reason he was put in such a low stander class, it wasn't like he needed to be there. He was more like the Teachers Aide if anything at all. Though this was a secret from the students. Those who are use to Naru knows he does this with all the teachers, so they just learned to ignore it.

After he was done he leaned back into the chair and looked around. Like he predicted, almost all students formed into groups and started chatting. There was one group whom he could hear over everyone else, mainly because they were right there talking to him.

"So, Iyazaki, some of us girls are going out later with a few guys. Would you like to come? You are so invited." The girl had reddish brown hair that curled in every direction. She went by the name Dolly. She was very pretty but had a terrible personality. Even when she smiled it showed her snobby meanings of her words. She is well known for being very open with her body towards men. Naru was the one of the guys she couldn't get to. There were three guys, in fact. Naru, Jordan, and Yu. The three most popular guys in the whole school. They all were amazing looking in their own way. Naru was the Prince of Many Things, Yu was the Prince of Music, and Jordan was the Prince of Sports.

"No way! If the Prince has free time, he is going to spend it with me on the Courts! I called Dibs first." Jordan laughed as he hooked himself onto Naru once again.

Naru smiled kindly at the others. "Again, forgive me. But as I told Jordan earlier. I am very busy. I can't. I'm truly sorry." He placed his hand on his chest as he got up with a little bow. The girls blushed and said that it was alright that they forgave him.

"We'll just have to make plans next time!" She smiled at him, touching his arm softly.

Softly he peeled her off him. "Sorry Dolly. I hardly ever have next times anymore. You understand don't you?"

She bit her lip and nodded as he looked her straight into the eyes with his charming smile. Jordan laughed and patted Naru's back.

"Will, it's because Prince here has already got his own Babe! He doesn't have time for High School girls. Knowing him, he is probably dating a college babe, right Prince?" Jordan laughed again and started to talk to Dolly and her group of friends. All Naru did was smile politely and listen. Wasn't like he could leave, it would be a bit rude. Right?

Most of class Shiori didn't pay much attention to the lesson. Tsubasa wrote the notes, she'd just get a copy of his later, or not. She didn't really care if she got good grades or not. Just when she was about to die of boredom, finally the teacher left the room and told everyone to study on their own. Rin of course was one of those nerds that listened to the request, but hardly anyone else bothered. Shiori immediately turned to Mimi and Riko. Whether or not she lived with new people, she was never abandoning her friends... So she gave them her new address. They'd need it eventually, because she always chose Riko as her partner for homework, and Mimi would constantly pick her up to go shopping. Sakura Square was her home now, so she saw no problem in giving the address to her friends.... well, except for Tsubasa. She doubted he could keep a secret. She wasn't going to tell him. Although the look on his face said he was dying to know.

She noticed that Narukei went to the teachers desk, sitting down as if he owned the place. She quirked a brow at this, hoping the teacher would walk in and catch him, but realized he wouldn't be in much trouble seeing as all he did was begin writing in the seating ledger. Figures. She returned her attention to Mimi and Riko who were talking about the school dance coming up in a couple of weeks. She didn't even realize it was coming up.. She spent so much time zoning out that she didn't even notice the days going by.

Then Riko broke Shiori from her thoughts, "Have you figured out who you're going to take to the dance, Shi-chan?" The question rang in Shiori's ears several times, yet she didn't have an answer for it. Sure, she loved dances, and not going would be out of the question, but she didn't really feel up to dating...especially since she was stuck around her ex-boyfriend twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. It made moving on seem like a far off dream.. She didn't even have someone she was crushing on. Sure, Jordan was cute... but he was Narukei's friend... Yukito was attractive as well, more so than Jordan, but he was also off limits. He was Narukei's younger brother, and soon to be her own.

"I don't know yet... I haven't really thought about it actually.." Shiori replied sheepishly to Riko's question. Riko was the only one in the group that had a boyfriend. Mimi was single, Tsubasa was interested in a girl, but wouldn't tell the group who it was... and Shiori, well... Shiori's didn't even know what her problem was.. She wanted a boyfriend, she just couldn't do much about it.

"So, Iyazaki, some of us girls are going out later with a few guys. Would you like to come? You are so invited."

Dolly began speaking to Narukei. It was loud enough for everyone to pretty much hear, because that's the type of person she was. She wasn't as popular as she tried to make herself out to be.. but she did have her own charms...if spreading your legs counted as a charm. She was well-known, and the boys fancied her because she was easy sex, but she wasn't cut out to be an It-girl.. At least Sakura knew better than to sleep with all of her candidates... Shiori was still a virgin, so she could definitely judge in this department. Speaking of sex, Shiori wasn't even sure if Sakura had ever had sex before... she had to respect her for that. Ugh... Now I'm thinking about who I'd rather see flirt with my ex? I really need a boyfriend.. Shiori thought to herself.

"No way! If the Prince has free time, he is going to spend it with me on the Courts! I called Dibs first."

Just as she was about to grow irritated, Jordan announced himself in the conversation. He was possibly the most attractive chastity belt that Shiori had ever seen... She really did appreciate him being in the same class, even though he was off limits. She had to admit, it was nice seeing Dolly get turned down once in a while, very nice indeed.

Honestly, due to Narukei's softer tone, Shiori wasn't sure what he'd said to Dolly. She was pretending to listen to Mimi and Riko after all, so she couldn't make out his words. He stood and bowed to Dolly afterwards however.. which sort of made Shiori's blood boil. She wasn't sure why, but the scene was irritating to watch. It's because I hate Dolly, that's probably it... that and I had to skip breakfast. She reassured herself, though she deep down felt more angry with Narukei than she did the auburn haired girl.

"We'll just have to make plans next time!"

Dolly reach forward and touched Narukei, causing Shiori's eyes to widen. E-Eh..?! This immediately turned Mimi's and Riko's attention to the scene behind them, just in time for the three of them to watch Dolly get turned down, quite a bit more obviously. This caused Riko to snicker, then Mimi and both girls turned to face Shiori, who glued her eyes back to her friends before anyone thought she was staring, especially Narukei.

"Will, it's because Prince here has already got his own Babe! He doesn't have time for High School girls. Knowing him, he is probably dating a college babe, right Prince?"

The words rung through the classroom, and everyone began whispering. Immediately Shiori stood up, and her friends gave her a concerned look, "Where are you going Shi-chan?" Mimi asked, reaching for Shiori's arm, but the brunette promptly refused her friend's hand, pulling out of her reach.

"I'm going to go find a date. It's sad for a girl to go to a dance alone, ne? Last one to get a date buys the other three lunch. That includes you Tsubasa." and with that, Shiori gave her friends a thumbs up and was quickly out the door. Class wasn't over yet, but she couldn't spend another second in that room. First Sakura and then Dolly? She was going to have to ask to transfer to another class... Hell, she'd even study if it meant she'd be able to swap classes. Who to ask... I have to find a date now that I stormed out like that... I never should have used finding a date as an excuse!

"It'll be easier if you told me what you had in mind. Instead of me. After all, I am making it up to you, not myself. If you ever think of something, here's my E-Mail... N.I.Zaki@Yipolo_com"

Sakura read the note and folded it up slowly before storing it in her shirt pocket with a smirk. She'd give it some thought... though she had a feeling that she'd come up with something soon, very soon. The teacher told everyone to self-study, but that wasn't going to happen. Sakura wasn't an idiot, but she definitely fell under the label of 'slacker'. Despite having good grades, Sakura really didn't put a lot of attention on her studies. She could possibly have Rin's spot as second best grade in the class, but she wasn't all that concerned as long as she kept a 3.5 GPA.

She saw Narukei get up and go to the teacher's desk, though it really didn't concern her. Whether he wanted to set the desk on fire, or just simply feel more important... she didn't really care. Though she was a bit amused as he began filling out the seating chart. Heh, taking on another's responsibility? How boring, Narukei-kun.. I guess that suits you though... She almost shook her head, but instead she just leaned back in her seat and watched the events take place.

"So, Iyazaki, some of us girls are going out later with a few guys. Would you like to come? You are so invited."

Though she had to admit she wasn't liking where this situation brought him. He was now further away, and therefore left unprotected and susceptible to Dolly's advances. Sakura quirked an amused brow, and she decided to remain calm, and see how Narukei planned to approach the situation. After all... he is a big boy now... I wonder if he knows about her reputation yet... If he didn't, she'd surely inform him if he fell for the girl's kind and innocent act. Hell, as far as their bodies went, Sakura was a saint compared to Dolly. Sakura, despite being a sadistic person, had only been with one guy in bed...opposed to Dolly's possible hundred or more partners...

"No way! If the Prince has free time, he is going to spend it with me on the Courts! I called Dibs first."

Dibs? You think..? How cute Jordan.. You're so naive.. She rolled her eyes, but continued to remain a silent onlooker. Watching the situation would help her understand what kind of man Narukei had become. It would prove useful later when she was making her own real attempts to charm him. For now, she was testing the waters... nothing too serious.

"Again, forgive me. But as I told Jordan earlier. I am very busy. I can't. I'm truly sorry."

Ouch, looks like he told you... She thought, eyes darting to Dolly. She almost felt sorry for the girl at this point, well, that is until the girl decided it was best to try again, especially after getting turned down once? Is Dolly a complete idiot? Wait, don't answer that... Of course she is... She probably is suffering from Syphilis... that would make her delusional enough to believe she stood a chance with Narukei...

"We'll just have to make plans next time!"

The arm touch? Not bad for an amateur. At least all that time on your knees has taught you something, love.. Sakura thought, chewing on the nail of her thumb as she watched the events fall into place. She was getting amused to be honest, but also had a pit of jealousy boiling in her gut. Now was not the right time to intervene though, she had to evaluate Narukei's personality.. Would he cave? It wasn't like Dolly was unattractive.. most guys would give in after this heavy of flirting...but would he? She was waiting to see if he was stronger than the average man.

"Sorry Dolly. I hardly ever have next times anymore. You understand don't you?"

A smirk crossed her lips, proud of Narukei, but also intrigued. A man who could turn down a slut was a huge turn on. She was impressed, but the fact that he could withstand her, it would pose as a challenge for Sakura in the future. It meant he wouldn't be easily conquered.

"Well, it's because Prince here has already got his own Babe! He doesn't have time for High School girls. Knowing him, he is probably dating a college babe, right Prince?"

Already has a girlfriend huh? Jordan... you'd be dangerous.. if you'd learn to stop yapping for a second. Less is more.. Sakura thought to herself, pondering on the topic. Though she didn't care if it was fact or fiction. Regardless, she'd still pursue Narukei... especially since he was showing some mild interest so far. No girl was getting in the way of Sakura's amusement. Though she definitely had to make Dolly jealous... There was no way that that auburn haired skank was going to touch Narukei and get away with it... but she couldn't be directly vicious at the moment. She'd have to be more strategic until Dolly was away from their classmates. Sakura couldn't let the entire school know that she was a sadistic bitch... It would just complicate things. As far as the school's faculty knew, Sakura was a bright, well-behaved young woman. She would neeever hurt anyone.

"I'm going to go find a date. It's sad for a girl to go to a dance alone, ne? Last one to get a date buys the other three lunch. That includes you Tsubasa."

Shiori left, probably tired of watching other girls flirt with her ex-boyfriend, which made Sakura want to laugh, but she contained her amusement. She needed a date to the dance as well, which gave her an evil idea, she just hoped it would work...or she'd end up just as humiliated as Dolly. Though Narukei owed her one, so she felt a little confident in her choice. Without hesitating, Sakura took Narukei's note out of her pocket and wrote on the back, "To make it up to me... You have to take me to the school dance... and I get to take one picture of us together.. ;) xoxo" As soon as she was done writing she folded the letter where the 'xoxo' was visible and slid the note into Narukei pocket, making sure the xoxo was facing Dolly at the time. She didn't linger inappropriately, but she did make sure that her hand 'accidentally' brushed his leg. She gave Dolly a kind smile, although her eyes told a different story. Sakura was going to enjoy this more than she should, "I figured out how you can make yesterday evening up to me Naru-kun. I can't wait." She winked at him, then returned to her seat, but not before she waved to Dolly.

"Whatever you did... it was awesome, Sakura-chan! What did you say to her?" Rin stated in an exuberant manner, completely breathless as she took a picture of Dolly's outraged face. Rin was part of the newspaper committee and this was definitely going on her funny faces of our fellow students page. Michiru snickered a bit, waving to Dolly almost exactly as Sakura had moments ago, only making Dolly angrier.

"I didn't say anything.... to her..." Sakura began with a calm and collected smile, though her eyes held devious intent. She knew exactly what she'd done, nothing about her approaching Narukei was innocent. She'd planned the entire thing just to shove down a few pegs, back to her proper place on the social ladder, "I didn't have to..." Her voice was low the entire time, but she let out a chuckle afterwards. She was definitely having fun.

Image Image Naru's attention was focused on what Jordan was chattering to Dolly about now. When suddenly Shi got up and shouted some none scene about getting a boyfriend. This caused some people in the classroom to laugh a bit at it.

"What a weirdo. Let's hope she doesn't aim for you Iyazaki. You might be in deep trouble." Dolly giggled softly.

"Haha, she's got a nice rack huh Prince?" Jordan nudged him laughing as he winked.

But just as Naru cleared his throat to say something. Sa-Sa came up to him in a heart beat. It surprised him a bit when she reached into his pant pocket. He wasn't expecting that, but when he realized who it was, his face became relaxed as he let her do so.

"Make it up to you? Ho ho! What did you two do yesterday?!" Jordan was amused and all too curious for no damn reason. Grabbing the note out of Naru's pocket Jordan read it out loud. Making up his own words for whatever the note really said. "Dear Prince of all Princes! I love you! Marry me?! Be my one and only lover!" Hugging the note he laughed once again and handed it to Naru. "Just joking. She wants you to go to the dance with her." Snickering now he sat down on top of a desk.

Naru looked at the letter to see what it had really said. Jordan was right about the dancing part. Softly Naru touched his lip with his index finger and smiled softly. Slowly looking over to Sa-Sa he walked right up to her, letting his long fingers slide over the top of her desk. He stood before her with his hand in his pocket as he put away the note.

"So, that is the wish of my Bride? For me to take her out to the dance?" He smiled was as charming as ever. Even his eyes showed it.

By this time, who whole classroom had gone silent. The stares of everyone was boring into the back of Naru's head, the air was a bit heavy too, but over the years he had learned to just ignore the stares.

Casually he stretched his hand over to her and softly grazed his index finger over the top of her hand. If your wish is for me to go with you. How could I ever turn it down from my special Sa-Sa Chan." This was his way of saying he'd go if she truly wanted it, but it was also his way of giving her a second chance to back down.

Softly he patted her head and left his hand there, smiling big enough it showed his perfect teeth. "It should be like old times, aye Sa-Sa Chan?" He bent down and brushed her hair back once again to whisper in her ear. "When you'd come over and we'd dance in the backyard at night. We'd end up making too much noise and get into trouble. Good times." This time he let his lips brush over the top of her ear. "Like I've said. You've grown."

"Heyyyyyy now! No whispering Prince! Tell us the good news!" Jordan patted his huge basketball hands on the desk like a dog with a loud thudding tail.

Naru rubbed the back of his head laughing in an awkwardly shy way. He even let a slight blush cover his cheek bones. "It seems, I've said yes. Goodness, it's rather embarrassing. Hah Hah."

Jordan whistled and jumped up hugging Naru. "you see this frail prince of a man? You better take good care of him Miss Kichiyami. He's not like the other guys here. Actually now that I think about it, you're the first person Naru has ever said yes to." He thought as he looked up at the ceiling. "Here I was starting to think that he was Asexual, even though he is such a lady killer."

Naru shook his head with his eyes closed. This idiot talks too much...

"What a weirdo. Let's hope she doesn't aim for you Iyazaki. You might be in deep trouble." Dolly giggled softly.

She wasn't necessarily fond of Shiori, but she didn't like listening to the likes of Dolly talking about her. Dolly was the last person in the room who had right to judge anyone. Not to mention Shiori was a lot better of a person than her, but who was Sakura to talk? She was just a few pegs above Dolly, considering she didn't hand her body out like it was free candy, but Sakura definitely went on numerous dates and flirted with numerous guys. She didn't have a lot of room to talk. I still hate them both. They need to stay away from Narukei! Shiori already stole him from me once, I won't let that happen again..

"Haha, she's got a nice rack huh Prince?"

Immediately Sakura glared daggers into the back of Jordan's skull from her seat. Why was he talking about Shiori's breasts and to Narukei to beat it all!? She was fuming with jealousy, but simply rolled her eyes and brooded on the situation. Of all girls he had to choose Shiori to compliment? At this point she would have preferred Jordan to compliment Dolly, at least she was sure that Narukei wasn't interested in her. He's already dated her, idot.. Oh wait, I forgot.. I'm the only one who knows that. At this moment, she wanted nothing more than to take Jordan by his tie and choke him to death for pointing out Narukei's ex's body... but the location was too public and harming Jordan was out of the question. He was too close to Narukei, so he was off limits for sure.

"Make it up to you? Ho ho! What did you two do yesterday?!"

"Who knows? For all you know, I could be the girl he's been seeing... Keep your nose out of it, Jordan. Go find something else to occupy yourself with.." She retorted from her seat, flipping her long ebony hair over her shoulder in a calm manner. She wasn't the person that Narukei spent his time texting, but she didn't think it was nice of Jordan to go blabbing about it to the entire school either.. Whether it was a girlfriend or not....she didn't mind pretending to be her to help him protect his secret, whatever that might be. She had secrets of her own that she didn't want other people to know...like her true eye color for example. Her eyes were a similar shade to Narukei's, but they were a much brighter red. If she removed her contacts, her pale skin wouldn't mesh very well with her eyes. People would be frightened by her more than they'd be attracted to her... so she opted for contacts.

"Dear Prince of all Princes! I love you! Marry me?! Be my one and only lover!"

One and only lover? I'm sorry to say, I've had one prior... She thought to herself, smirking at Jordan's display. She wasn't embarrassed, especially because it wasn't true... but also because she'd been there done that. Sex wasn't a topic that made her clam up easily. She could talk about it without so much as a blush, at least with most people.

"Just joking. She wants you to go to the dance with her."

Why is he snickering like that? It was a decision based on odds, and I figured the odds were in my favor at the moment. Unlike you I can utilize a strategy... moron.. She thought to herself with irritation, but simply smiled as all attention turned to Narukei and herself. He was the prince of the school, and she was the current It-girl, this was almost like a scene in a movie where the two most popular students go to prom together.

She didn't feel an ounce of nervousness, that is until Narukei approached. She kept a poker face however, until he was directly upon her. She lost some of her nerve as his hands met her desk, and she closed her eyes to collect her emotions. She refused to embarrass herself now. She wasn't the same little girl than ran from him the first time he tried to kiss her as children. She was much more mature.... She'd proven that over the years.... so why was it so hard to behave natural now? She'd been in this same situation several times... why was Narukei able to unnerve her like this? If she was anyone else, she would have been blushing by now. Hell, she was on the brink of it herself. He wasn't trying very hard, yet he was coming across as very seductive... it was a trait she both loved and despised in Narukei.

"So, that is the wish of my Bride? For me to take her out to the dance?"

Her mouth grew dry as he called her his bride in front of the entire class. Was he seriously referring to their fake childhood wedding in the middle of class? She opened her blue eyes, nodding her head at him as confidently as she could muster. She still held a level of control, yet it was obvious she was faltering. She was chewing on the inside of her cheek, and she even lightly bit her lip before nodding to approve that asking him to the dance was still her intent. She was used to the stares of the class, it was his stare that caused her to get nervous. It was Narukei's gaze that made her feel suddenly anxious.

If your wish is for me to go with you. How could I ever turn it down from my special Sa-Sa Chan."

She blinked down at his hand that currently was caressing her own, then returned her gaze to meet his own, "T-Then I guess it's a date..." She stuttered in the beginning due to growing rather timid now that he was breaking the touch barrier. Narukei was nothing like Makoto. Makoto was a sweet, goofy boyfriend. He was her knight in shining armor, and wasn't very forward with his advances. Narukei... he was a completely different kind of man. He was more like a big bad wolf preying on innocent lambs that dared to wander too close to the dark forest. She was far from a lamb, but at the moment, she would have thought otherwise. In his presence she felt breathless, timid... None of the dating experience she'd stocked up on was doing her any good. She never dated a boy like him. All of the guys she dated were complete gentleman and allowed her to run the pace... Narukei was a challenge, he was taking lead of the current situation, and she wasn't very comfortable with it... Sakura was used to being the one in control, so she was entirely out of her element.

"It should be like old times, aye Sa-Sa Chan?"

"S...Sa-ku-ra..." she said sounding out her name, seeing as he seemed rather persistent when it came to the use of her nickname. She hated that nickname, and he really had to use it here? Were his teeth naturally that straight? She'd never noticed before, but now that he was so close, she couldn't help but take note of more intricate features of his face, "We're older now... so it might be a bit...different." Her tone was challenging, slightly flirtatious, but there was an obvious crack in her tone, indicating he was breaking her confidence. Sakura Kichiyama was blushing in front of her classmates for the first time since Elementary school.

"When you'd come over and we'd dance in the backyard at night. We'd end up making too much noise and get into trouble. Good times."

She blinked in surprise as he mentioned their childhood, but her blush remained. She remembered those days very well. When the two of them were little Sakura's mother wouldn't let her spend the night with Narukei because they were a boy and a girl. Sakura being sakura would constantly throw princess sized tantrums and argued with her mother using the excuse that she and Narukei were already married and thus said it was perfectly fine for them to have sleepovers because they were going to have children one day. In her defense, at the time Sakura didn't know that babies didn't come from the stork. Now that she was older, Sakura knew perfectly well why he mother didn't allow it, and her mother was definitely wise for doing so.

This time he let his lips brush over the top of her ear. "Like I've said. You've grown."

Immediately Sakura's light blush returned to her pale cheeks and she shivered, "N-not cool, Naru-kun... What's that supposed to mean.." she whined in a pout-ish tone, but ultimately she was glad to see that he appreciated what puberty gave her. Instinctively one of Sakura's hands gently pushed on Narukei's chest to put a few inches of space between them. Sakura's ears and neck were always incredibly sensitive, even as children. She hated being on the receiving end of whispers and Narukei knew it..

"Heyyyyyy now! No whispering Prince! Tell us the good news!"

Get a life, Jordan! Stop living vicariously off of Narukei! Sakura turned her attention to the whining baby of a man and sighed a bit, shaking her head at him. He really knew how to ruin a built up mood....though at the moment she was grateful. Perhaps she'd send Jordan an anonymous box of chocolates. Another moment in that situation and she would have been no better than the girls who stalked Narukei... she was already lightly blushing when Jordan intervened.

"It seems, I've said yes. Goodness, it's rather embarrassing. Hah Hah."

The blush on Narukei's face was incredibly charming. She couldn't help but stare, regardless of how fake it was. He was... an incredible actor... Which side of him was the true Narukei...? She was almost afraid to find out... The more straight-forward man held an almost suffocating sex appeal, while the lighthearted and princely side of him was comforting and hard to not adore.. I don't really mind if they're both him... I like Narukei either way... both sides of him.

"you see this frail prince of a man? You better take good care of him Miss Kichiyami. He's not like the other guys here. Actually now that I think about it, you're the first person Naru has ever said yes to. Here I was starting to think that he was Asexual, even though he is such a lady killer."

Once again Jordan ruined her thoughts by being loud and obnoxious, but she giggled when she caught Narukei shaking his head at Jordan's words. At least she wasn't the only one who thought he was ridiculous and a little over the top, "I'm happy to keep your friend in the game then, Jordan. I suppose I'll have to do my best to keep him happy then, ne?"

Jordan and Naru exchanged glances after Sa-Sa said what she did. Jordan snickered and ruffled his friends hair. Naru just stood there taking it, not feeling bothered by his situation.

Dolly sighed and then walked up to Naru wrapping his arms around his waist, pressing her face against the middle of his back, due to his height and all. "That's so mean Iyazaki. You said you were busy."

Jordan lets go of Naru and took a step back, sitting on top of the desk across from Sa-Sa. He hiked one leg up, leaning his chest against it as the other leg dangled down. But he didn't say anything and just stared. Watching everything unfold.

Naru in the mean time, softly patted Dolly's hands and pulled her free from his body. "You're right, I am very busy and I did say that." He turned to face Dolly and placed his hands on her shoulders. "But you see, Sa-Sa Chan is a very important person that I've known for a very long time. It'd be rude of me if I turned down such a person wouldn't it?" He gave her his prince like smile.

Dolly blushed at the smile and sighed. "I guess I see your point. Sorry." She gave up for now and went back to her friends without another word.

Naru rubbed the back of his neck and sat down at his desk. Jordan tilted his head a bit and let his hiked leg drop onto the desk as he rested his hands in his lap as he looked at Naru.

"Don't worry about it Prince. You're not put off as the bad guy for what you said. She'll be fine. If it were me, I would have done almost the same thing." He smiled a dorky smile at him trying to cheer up his friend.

Naru glanced over at Jordan and raised an eyebrow. "Please don't say that you are planning to ask me to the dance next? Cause I'm the only childhood friend you have here."

Jordan snickered and slid off the desk. Moving over to Naru's desk, he let his face get inches away from Naru's. "Oh come on, it wouldn't be so bad to go with me. I could make you very happy." Sliding his fingers along Naru's jaw bone, he got even closer. Their lips only a breath away now.

"Jordan, people are looking." Naru blushed, shifting his eyes away 'shyly'. But never did his move his face, but in fact he sat up straight and bit his sleeve, playing along with Jordan's game.

"Shh Shh. Stop that, you'll ruin your clothes." Jordan took Naru's hand into his, moving his body on top of the desk so that he could sit and look down on Naru. From the angle they were in, it was as if Jordan was the prince and Naru was the princess.

Some girls from the class squealed and snapped a few pictures of the two males flirting. But by the time the snap of the picture came Jordan planted a big hot kiss upon Naru's lips. He even pulled on Naru's hand so that he wouldn't get hit. And after the kiss was done he laughed and let go.

"Oh man, the Prince really is dangerous! For a moment there I thought he was going to swallow me whole." Jordan laughed and licked his lips.

Naru would have been surprised with this, but It didn't really faze him. He rubbed his thumb over his bottom lip and licked it. Sitting back in his chair as if nothing happened. Letting his friend sits on his desk and jabber away.

They were an odd pair of friends the two boys. Jordan would do as he pleased and was very loud about almost everything. While Naru was quiet and almost everything he did was un-expecting. Still they were so used to one another that whatever the one did, it didn't bother them or ruin their friendship. Like the kiss just now, they were playing with the crowd of people and trying to better the weird situation in the room. It worked out seeing as the girls were blushing and squealing and the guys were all puzzled, well some of them.

"Come on Ito! Let's play under the rain, it's fun!"
"I hate feeling like this... It's because I can hear them all... their words... they..."
"Yui, your father and I can never be together again... It's over. I'm sorry..."
"Capture me, entangle me deeper into a pit I can't get out off and still, I..."
"I like your name... I love it, the snow rabbit. Oh, there's he is. Bye, Yukito."
"Don't want to hear it anymore... Just stop."

|| Current Location ✦ School ||
|| [ All The Things She Said | Male Version ] ||



Someone was there.

Yukito could feel it and somehow, he disliked being found out like this. It didn't matter who it was. He just doesn't like the idea of being seen so weak. They would reason he was still a child and the likes. Even his brother had never seen him in such a state, the only time who did would be their father, but that was years ago. Then, that presence spoke. It was a voice familiar to him. He was certain it was the Inu (Shiori) though, he doesn't appreciate the certain hint of playfulness on her voice. This person was going to tease him about how he appears at the moment. He should have succumbed to this feverish spell in some isolated place without anyone possibly finding him.

How he wanted to retort in a way that only he could do, but his body was not responding to him as he wanted. So, he remained still and silent even when he felt something touching his forehead. He would not admit it but whatever was pressed again his head was nice. It seemed she was gauging his temperature as she exclaimed that he was burning up. That was good to know, she wasn't that dumb for pointing out the obvious. It was a good thing his mouth was not very cooperative with him today. However, his temper, sensitivity, and control seemed to be having certain cracks.

He then felt himself being hoisted up from the floor. That was not his doing as his legs and feet would not listen to him. If they did, he would have already been away from this place. He would probably be on the rooftop or some storage room where he could be left alone in peace. He truly believed that all he needed is just some rest and this slickness would pass. But, the Inu did speak about lowering his temperature which is rather helpful. There was hope for her yet. It was also a good thing that she was rather strong carrying him. Regardless, he tried to will himself to move at the very least as to alleviate some of the weight. It was rather quite the effort for him though. He never felt this sick before. Well, there was this one time but that was when... his mother... left. It was his father who had took care of him but, it was by force.

Anyway, he felt himself being returned to the infirmary. This would be something as he had made quite the impression on the doctor beforehand. But, it seemed that kind of interaction was not going to happen as he felt himself being placed on a chair. The only movements he could hear was of the Inu. They seemed to be on their own. He then felt something cold on his forehead. It was soon on his neck and then chest. That would only be possible if some of his shirt's button had been unfastened which could only be done by her. Now who said that one of his fans might sexually assault him, if left there? Normally, he would have said something along with his own form of flirtation. But apparently, he was not in the best condition to do so. He would have just to save it for another time.

She asked if he was feeling better. He would have answer her that he was fine from the very beginning, but that wouldn't be as convincing as it sounded right now. So instead, he kept silent about it as his breathing remained shallow. This was not really good. He still has things to do and he would be damned than to skip them just because he got a little sick. Then, there was a cool breeze on him as it played with his hair like a wind would do to a cloud. This was probably the only time anyone would see him so vulnerable. Despite that, he does look rather appealing and delicate. Shiori's assumption that some raving lunatic of fans will be tempted to do anything they want with him is not a far-off chance. He was rather defenseless.

Then, he heard his name being called again. Actually, the fan was lulling him to sleep and he was on the verge of that. Still, he was able to grasp what the Inu was telling him. It was about to better take care of himself. That was something he had been doing for a long time ever since that day. The sense of being treated as a kid at this very moment irritates him. But, there's not much he could do. She better be prepared for him when he gets his strength back. There will be hell to pay. Then, she asked if he wanted to go home. At that, he was able to slightly open his eyes albeit weakly, they looked at her with such sternness even though it was more cute, than intimidating. "No..." His voice lacked that usual zest that he has. "I... ha..ve.. thin...gs.. to do.." It was clear that whatever he wanted to do, he was not in the condition to do it. "Ju...st need rest..." It was his solid belief, but how wrong he was at that moment and unfortunately current goings of the day was not cooperative as well.

The school's PA system started with its melody before a male voice echoed throughout the entire school. "Iyazaki Yukito of Class 1-A, please report to the Principal's Office. Iyazaki Yukito of Class 1-A, please report to the Principal's Office. Thank you." Then, the familiar ending chime sounded before it was turned off. To anyone who heard it, something must have happened if it involves the currently most popular student of the school since his entering in secondary level. Something rather big especially on his first ever attendance in his first day of school. But then again, it must be related to the rather growing crowd of media personnel at the school's front gates.

"So.. hotshot, who are you taking to the dance..?" Sakura asked Jordan with a curious expression, but her eyes gleamed with mischief. She knew about Jordan's reputation, and knew that he probably hadn't thought about who he'd ask yet as well. All Sakura knew was that she had to wipe that perpetual grin off of Jordan's face. One more snicker from the cocky male and she'd likely go insane, "It is only a week away from the event."

"That's so mean Iyazaki. You said you were busy."

Then Dolly, being Dolly, came up and clung onto Narukei like the attention whore that she was. Sakura did nothing other than quirk an eyebrow at this, and put her chin in her palm. She was going to enjoy watching Dolly get turned down. She really hated that girl... though, to be fair, Sakura hated most girls she met. Rin and Michiru were the only girls she ever met that she truly liked... but even then paying too much attention to them caused her to grow irritated. She just didn't like hanging out with other girls, everything about them from their mannerisms to their guy problems just annoyed the crap out of her.

"You're right, I am very busy and I did say that."

She watched Naru pry the girl off of himself, but he was being a lot nicer about it than she would have liked to see. Though she just enjoy the refusal anyhow, a kind refusal was better than no refusal at all, right? She wasn't going to be overly picky at this point. He was already going to the dance with her instead of Dolly, so that was a win. She could allow the nasty girl to touch him, because at the end of the day he told Dolly no and he told her yes.. That was enough to make Sakura content.

"But you see, Sa-Sa Chan is a very important person that I've known for a very long time. It'd be rude of me if I turned down such a person wouldn't it?"

Sakura closed her eyes as Narukei spoke, mostly to hide her own surprise. She never would have thought that he would call her important, especially after how tossed aside she felt when he started dating Shiori.. To hear the words come out of his mouth, it was heartwarming... She'd never felt anything like it, not since the day of their 'wedding' in his backyard.
He gave her his prince like smile.

"I guess I see your point. Sorry."

Still that disgustingly hopeful tone? He's pretty much told you no, permanently. You're so hopeless.. Sakura thought to herself, but only opened her eyes when she was certain that she wouldn't give away the shock that she was currently feeling.

"Don't worry about it Prince. You're not put off as the bad guy for what you said. She'll be fine. If it were me, I would have done almost the same thing."

Really? Sakura quirked an eyebrow, but said nothing. She would let the boys talk for a while. It wasn't necessary for her to interact and she doubted that they would appreciate her always butting in anyhow. So for now she just remained a quiet spectator.

"Please don't say that you are planning to ask me to the dance next? Cause I'm the only childhood friend you have here."

Sakura couldn't help but giggle at that, but she quickly composed herself, aside from a very amused smirk. The thought of Jordan asking Narukei to the dance was an interesting thought, but she had a reputation to uphold. She couldn't be seen partaking in the typical laughter or enjoying the thought of two guys romantically together.

"Oh come on, it wouldn't be so bad to go with me. I could make you very happy."

Sakura's eyes, and most likely everyone else's eyes in the room widened at the scene. Despite being well versed in romance, Sakura had never seen two guys interact intimately before now... her eyes were somewhat frozen on the scene before her. She had a front row seat! She wanted to look away, but for some strange reason she couldn't.

"Jordan, people are looking."

She could feel knots of nervousness coiling in her stomach, even though she wasn't the one who was being flirted with. She knew this was probably some sick game that Jordan came up with, but it was too realistic to not react... she just couldn't help it. Michiru was one of the girls that took out their phones, but she was secretly recording instead of snapping pictures.

"Shh Shh. Stop that, you'll ruin your clothes."

By then, a light blush formed on Sakura's cheeks, not nearly as dark as most of the other girls in the class, but she was still effected by the scene the two were playing out. I-I'm going to kick Jordan's ass for this... I'm embarrassed for them.... and then she saw the kiss, causing a dark red blush to cross her cheeks, but it faded nearly as quick as it came.

"Oh man, the Prince really is dangerous! For a moment there I thought he was going to swallow me whole."

Sakura remained quiet, that is until a message ran across the PA system. Instantly her attention turned to that instead of Narukei's and Jordan's kiss, which, by the way, would be stuck in her head for quite some time.

"Iyazaki Yukito of Class 1-A, please report to the Principal's Office. Iyazaki Yukito of Class 1-A, please report to the Principal's Office. Thank you."

"Yuki-kun?" Sakura asked in surprise. Yukito was never asked to go to the office... why was it happening now? For once Sakura's face held an innocent expression of pure curiosity, her blue eyes shifting to Narukei, then to Jordan. She wondered if either one of them would know what was going on with Yukito, but highly doubted it, "Why would they call him to the office, Naru-kun?" Sakura asked, putting her fingers up to her face as she tried to concentrate, contemplating different reasons as to why he could have been summoned by the principal.

Naru shot up straight from his desk after the announcement. Whenever it involved his brother, he was right there. It wasn't like the Principle could do anything about it even if he wanted to. Because Naru was on good terms with the Headmaster. If there was a problem or if anything was going on with his brother, he should know. It was his little brother and he was his responsibility. Not noticing Sa-Sa when she spoke up, he was already out of the room before she could finish asking him about Yu.

"Oh yeah don't mind us Naru. We'll be here." Jordan joked and then looked at Sa. "By the way, I do have a date. He said proudly and had the biggest smile ever. "Naru accepted my asking. It was even sealed with a kiss. Jordan slid his index and middle finger over his lips with a wink towards Sa.

But before the conversation could go any further a couple of Basketball guys huddled near him in a group around Naru's desk. They started to talk about the big game that was coming up just before the dance. It was a state nationals game and it meant big news and cash for the school if they win.

"Hey, Princess, what should I call you?" He was being nice about it as he asked Sa about her name. He really was curious about it until one of her friends blurted out Sakura's name. He chuckled and nodded. "Right well, Sakura. It's nice meeting you. Prince isn't the type to really talk about himself. So it's nice meeting people he knows for a change. It kind of sets my mind at ease knowing that I'm not his only childhood friend." He smiled at her in a gentle and meaningful way. "Thank you really. Even if you think you didn't do anything. Thanks."

He went back to his conversation with his friends. In almost every way, he was like a grown child. But in other ways he was quite manly and serious. I guess one would find it hard to dislike a guy like him after talking to him or knowing how he is. Even if they did hate him, it'll never last too long and he'd always make it up to the person who disliked them, unless he hated them himself.

~~Meanwhile~~

Naru barged into the principles office. Well, not really barged in, he did knock first. But he went straight to the topic."I thought I told you to come to me if you have anything to say to Yukito. He has enough on his plate dealing with school and his job. Did he do something he shouldn't have?" Naru was a bit uneasy when it came to his brother and people like the Principle attacking students for stupid reasons. The guy was a bully, not the kind Naru is, but this guy had no morals what so ever and he his behind the title of Principal to back himself up. It was ridiculous, but, all in all, Naru kept his normal prince like cool within school grounds.

(Sorry it's a bit short, the site is running slow for me. Dx Sorry)

"Oh yeah don't mind us Naru. We'll be here."

"When it comes to Yuki-kun, I've noticed that Naru-kun always runs of like that.." Sakura replied to Jordan's joking tone with a sigh. She really admired that about them, because she didn't have siblings. She was an only child and would never know the love of a sibling. Then she leaned back in her chair with a thoughtful expression on her face, "It's really sweet actually.." Though the peace could never last. This school saw to that. Immediately Jordan ruined her mood with his next words.

"By the way, I do have a date. Naru accepted my asking. It was even sealed with a kiss."

Sakura's eyes narrowed for a moment, but she resorted to visibly rolling her eyes at the dark haired boy. Just the way he bragged about the situation made her want to slap him. She however refrained, he was Narukei's friend after all.. She'd would have to learn to have some tolerance with Jordan eventually.. The other air-headed guys on the basketball team stole him away before Sakura could say anything back, but he returned his attention towards her soon enough.. She'd get her revenge for that statement soon enough. She had something under her belt that Jordan would never have..

"Hey, Princess, what should I call you?"

Michiru immediately answered, and Sakura gave her a scolding look. Just tell everyone Michiru, what if he was some kind of stalker? She thought to herself, deciding she would have to give Rin and Michiru a safety class as far as personal information goes.
Though she had to get her words out fast before the airhead lost his trail of thought again or was torn away by the other airheads. She had to get them out at the opportune moment.

"Right well, Sakura. It's nice meeting you. Prince isn't the type to really talk about himself. So it's nice meeting people he knows for a change. It kind of sets my mind at ease knowing that I'm not his only childhood friend. Thank you really. Even if you think you didn't do anything. Thanks."

Sakura wasn't really sure what Jordan meant by all that, but she decided to throw in her own words before letting the conversation end. Sakura quickly leaned over her desk towards Jordan, "I'll let you in on a little secret..." she said loud enough for only him, Michiru, and Rin to hear. There was a smirk on her face and she cupped her mouth with her hand so Michiru, Rin, nor anyone else would be able to succeed at reading her lips to guess what she was telling Jordan next, "I was Narukei's first kiss..." She replied to Jordan in a rather seductive tone, quite proud of that accomplishment actually. She gave a short giggle before winking at him this time. She totally won this round..

The bell rang and it was time for lunch, so Sakura took her bento. She really didn't feel like eating in her classroom, but it was storming outside. She'd have to look for a decent place to eat. She ditched Michiru and Rin, hoping to have a moment of actual peace instead of their constant jabbering. She started roaming the halls, but came to a halt when she ran into a familiar face Daisuke Nakamura He was one of her favorite casual dates, but he seemed troubled. Sakura stood with a tilted head as the boy approached. He was from another class so she didn't typically see him at school, "Need something?" she asked in a collected tone, which only made him narrow his eyes at her more.

"You're going to the dance with Narukei Iyazaki?? Why?"

The boy asked in a hurt and somewhat loud tone. Daisuke truly seemed bothered by the girl's choice. It was obvious that he genuinely upset, because his eyes gave it away. However, the boy's shattered heart didn't change the bored expression on Sakura's face. She felt absolutely nothing as he questioned her, practically begging for answers.

"Who was I supposed to ask? You?" She asked in a low tone so just Daisuke could hear. She gazed upon him with an irritated quirk of her brow. She was actually kind of amused by the fact he honestly had himself convinced that he stood a chance with her. She was not going to ask someone as boring as Daisuke to take her to the dance. Sure, he was sweet, but he was so ordinary and dull, "I like Narukei, you were just fun.. It's simple as that." She told him directly in a passive, but also quiet tone. She wanted to make sure that only Daisuke heard her words. She finally felt tired of dealing with the emotional wreck of a man so she decided to go around him, though Daisuke wasn't having that. Immediately he grabbed her arm before she passed him, not letting her dismiss him so easily.

Sakura flinched as he touched her, seeing as she didn't expect it. She absolutely loathed unexpected physical contact...due to her...fear, "Let go, Daisuke." she stated in a colder, much more serious tone. She did not like where this was going, but she was also still recovering from the spontaneous invasion of her space. He was starting to attract unwanted attention to them. Did he really have to be so public about his feelings? It was truly pathetic. Maybe he should go out with Shiori... they're a match made in hell. Sakura thought bitterly, trying to tug her arm away, but to no avail.

"You're wicked! How am I supposed to see you as a girl when you're such a cruel person!?"

He snapped at her, causing a scene large enough for anyone currently in the hallway to notice. His grip was a little rough on her arm, but he wasn't vindictively out to hurt her. She winced as his grip tightened, but refused to say anything. She wasn't going to make the current display any worse than it already was. He was simply upset because she let him fall in love with her, but she felt absolutely nothing for him. Honestly she was the bad guy here, Sakura just didn't care. This is really too stupid, get on with your life. You had to know that I was playing you somewhere deep down in your heart.. This is all your fault because you were too naive to realize I would never care about you.

"We were done long before now, so I suggest that you let go of me, right now.." her tone was still soft and composed, unlike his loud and emotional one. Though there was a dangerous quality to her last six words. she was really losing her temper with him and if he chose to continue this, she'd surely make him regret it. He was already embarrassing her, and the crowd watching and whispering was already large enough.

"This is the start of a new chapter of my life. It definitely must be. Eh? is that shouting? Running? Well, I supposed this school is rather lively then. It should be perfect, right?"

It cannot be helped at all as people stared, gawked, or even ogled at the female walking by. That is because she was a vision in the simplest sense and it is something that comes to her very naturally. There was no doubt that she was a foreigner as her stock, coloring, and specific traits are not synonymous to the natives of Japan. That was one of the factors, she was hard not to notice along with how all of it comprises to a stunning and voluptuous beauty. Her body was curved into a perfect hourglass shaped with the fitting proportion of bust, hips, and butt. It was probably also why some of the girls had envious gazes at her to have such a glamorous physique neither too slender nor too meaty. Adding to that, she does have a beautiful face with those mysterious mauve eyes and sensual curly locks cradling her face.

However, the source of the attention was oblivious to the looks she is receiving. It is because she was looking at the piece of paper on her hand. This held the directions she needed to do to get enrolled or better yet to arrive at her new school. She actually had a late start since she had emotionally calm herself first thing in the morning. Speaking of which, it was a bit hard to believe that she had been living in this country for years now. To her, it was the first time everything was new and strange even if she had read what was written by her own hands on her journal. Her grip tightened on the paper before someone pulled her from behind. It startled her as a speeding car passed by her. "Are you alright? You better look where you're going missy." She looked behind her and saw the one who saved her was an elderly man.

"I'm sorry, but thank you very much." She noted as she properly faced the gentleman and then gave him a hug which surprised the other bystanders. "Miss!?" It seemed that this country was not that bad at all. "Thank you!" She released the man who was rather embarrassed as she then ran off once the pedestrian crossing was once again available. Somehow, she was rather lively than before and was looking forward to this day. She should write down on her journal which she was determined to do as she walked once more while jotting it down. By the time she finished writing it down, she finally reached the school. But, it was a bit odd as there were a lot of media personnel and all. It made her wonder if there was something going on as she looked at the school building for a moment. But, it seemed so quiet. Shrugging her shoulders, she entered the school gate after she showed her papers to the guards who were having a hard time preventing the media from coming in.

She actually wanted to help and was about to offer it when one of the guards just gently ushered her inside. She accepted his kindness and proceeded to the principal's office where she could process her papers. It was at the exact moment that the doors to the principal's office opened with a girl running away, then followed by a tall guy. Her eyes owlishly blinked as she was not certain if something was happening which she should know about or not. In any case, she prepared herself to enter the room as she softly knocked and opened the doors. "Excuse me... I'm here to submit my enrollment papers." She said and found other people who were doing the same thing as her. That was a relief at least, she wasn't the only one. There were two guys and a girl present. But it seemed, the secretary who was in-charge of processing seemed a bit offended and disconcerted. Why was that?

Approaching the desk, she introduced herself with smooth and elegant move. It seemed completely natural and fitting for her. Some of the staff can't help but look at her; she was a very pleasant and exotic sight to see. " Good morning, I am Aina Malik. I have been told to submit my papers here." The secretary was pleased with her than the other two and took her papers. "We've been expecting you. I'll get you ready..." But before the secretary could finish her sentence, she politely cut her off. "Thank you, but I believe they were here before me. Please assist them first kindly." She softly smiled and somehow it appeared Aina had wings and a halo. It had always been her motto to be fair in everything. The secretary relented and basically felt bad and began processing the siblings papers first. "Here are your school IDs and class cards. You can go to your classes now." Finally, the two were done.

"Your turn, right?" Aina nodded happily at this. It didn't take long for her to be done as she left the principal's office and began to trace down her homeroom. It was actually time for lunch as the hallways crowded with students who instantly attached their eyes on her. The school was definitely getting new faces and not just any faces, but wonderful ones. "It should be around this corner." Oblivious and absorbed in finding her homeroom, she didn't notice that she was basically categorized as an IT girl. As she did turn the corner, there seemed to be a growing crowd that took her attention. This school was truly eventful isn't it? Somehow, she wondered if she would be able to cope. But, she must and she was determined on that part. Anyway, she continued on her way and caught glance that the commotion was between a girl and a boy.

It should not be her business but, it seemed that they were attracting too much attention and it might cause to a more physical altercation. Since, she could see the girl was not pleased with what happening and the boy was rather emotional. "Excuse me." She announced her appearance through that and had kindly already got in between the two while gently removing the boy's hands on the girl. "I am not certain what has happened, but shouting would not properly address the matter. Could you not see? You're making her already uncomfortable and you are disrupting others as well." There was a gentle sternness present on her tone and her eyes reflected that as well. "Why not calmly discuss this matter at some other time? Okay?" Her voice softened while small and kind smile on her lips. There was no doubt that her charm does not work only the males who were now blushing lightly but also to the other girls. They haven't see her before but she was wearing their school uniform so, she was undoubtedly part of this school now.

And indeed, this day was rather eventful for Aina.

"Excuse me."

Sakura's eyes landed on her current savior. The girl's hair was so dark that it came across as slightly violet. Her eyes were a light shade of purple, a color that Sakura had never seen as an eye color until now. The woman's body rivaled Shiori's and her own. This girl was a challenge, a rival as far as aesthetics go. Aina also had dark, flawless skin and a slender, feminine face. She was...absolutely gorgeous and therefore Sakura immediately hated her. Sakura knew that this girl completely challenged her reign as 'It girl'. Not to mention this girl's personality was so far a lot nicer than her's. The girl even removed Daisuke's grasp on Sakura's wrist, much to the ivory girl's relief.

"I am not certain what has happened, but shouting would not properly address the matter. Could you not see? You're making her already uncomfortable and you are disrupting others as well."

Daisuke looked around, nodding his head after Aina put some distance between him and Sakura, he bowed his head apologetically to both girls, "I understand. I apologize to everyone who had to witness this." He said in a soft tone, rubbing the back of his neck awkwardly. Honestly he didn't know who this girl was, but even he was staring at Aina with admiration.

Sakura was grateful, but at the same time she wanted to rip this girl apart. This girl was a threat, and the more she spoke up for Sakura, the worse the situation came to be. She shot the girl a very kind, appreciative smile. It was genuine, but also amplified for good show. She was going to have to play nice, because next to Aina, any bad behavior was going to look like it was magnified at least ten fold. She handled the situation with such grace, she envied this girl, and that was exactly why she despised her. Sakura didn't keep attractive friends because they were a threat to her status.. She currently had no choice but to be kind towards this girl, because she was her 'princess in shining armor'. If Sakura was rude to her after receiving help it would only damage Sakura's reputation. She couldn't allow something like that to happen because this girl was in the right place at the right time.

"Why not calmly discuss this matter at some other time? Okay?"

Daisuke nodded again, a much calmer expression on his face than the one he'd initially had as he approached Sakura earlier, "You're right, again sorry for the trouble... I'm Daisuke by the way. Sayonara, we'll talk later, Sakura-chan." and with that Daisuke was gone seeing as it was still lunch hour after all.

Sakura still needed to find a quiet place to eat, and she was thinking about eating in the main hall, but she didn't quite make it there, obviously. Then she got a good idea. She could steal the competition away for now, seeing as she wanted to keep this girl under tight watch. She had to keep track of the polls, and she couldn't do that if this girl was doing all kinds of charity and good deeds behind her back while she was trying to eat. She was going to do her best to keep this enemy as close as possible. Distance would only make taking her down that much harder in the end.

She also noticed that this girl was new here, so that was a plus, "I'm Sakura Kichiyami.. Thanks for that." She replied in a very sweet voice. It was almost toxic due to the high concentration of sugar she was coating her words with, but she would do anything necessary to stay on top, "Let me make it up to you. Come eat lunch with me and my friends..." Suddenly Rin and Michiru popped up behind Sakura like dumb and dumber, but they both waved to Aina in their own quirky ways. Michiru was stuffing her face despite walking through the halls, and Rin had a piece of pocky in her mouth and held a book with the page marked in her hands. Rin frowned at Michiru and shook her head, "I'm Rin, that's Michiru... nice to meet you." Rin's tone was rather business-like and distant, but the warm smile on her face helped assure those around her that she was being kind, at least as kind as someone like Rin could be.

"I hope to see you join us. What is your name?" Sakura asked with an innocent blink and a tilt of her head. She wanted to start eating so she wouldn't have to cram food in her face, but she also had to make up for her moment of pathetically handling Daisuke. She would think of ways to tear this girl down as she got to know her. She would find a weakness, somewhere. Sakura smiled a bit, then pointed to the main hall, "It's quieter there and we can sit wherever we want.." She informed the darker skinned female. She ushered for Aina to follow her, but she couldn't force her to in the end. Sakura slowly walked over to a long bench that could seat the four of them if Aina chose to join them and sat down. She carefully began to eat her lunch in an orderly and pristine manner. Why do these things always happen to me? One good thing happens and then my entire day goes to shit...

"I'm getting to meet a lot of new people... It's scary, because I know what would happen tomorrow... But, it's nice to know they can be my friends and so, it's worth it. They'll be my friends, right?"

It was a good thing that the male listened to her words. He even apologized understanding his mistake. A sensible man, he must have just allowed his emotions to take control too much. But, that cannot be blamed. Everyone has feelings and letting them out was fine and healthy, but one must take consideration other factors as well as the person before them. Still, Aina was proud of the one named Daisuke. Admitting mistakes and apologizing are two things that are hard to do for most. She was just only a tad bit disappointed since she wasn't able to give her name back. That should be proper when one introduces themselves to one another right? She could wish that she might be able to see him again and give her name.

That is what was on her mind which makes her completely unaware of the looks she was receiving from other students. They were surprised, baffled, and in the end amazed of her. She was graceful, angelic, and gorgeous by all rights. There was no question that she was going to be quite the popular girl around school which was not particularly good for someone. But of course, she has no idea about that nor does she have interest in such things. Her attention was then taken by the girl who she had helped. She looked behind her. It was then she managed to take a good look. Sakura reminded her of the traditional Japanese beauty she had encountered before during her first visit to this country. "How lovely." That is the first thought which entered her head before returning herself to reality.

"It is nice to meet you, Ms. Sakura." It was clear that she is yet accustomed to the customs of Japan, so she was still struggling on that part. She did grew on another land basically. "I am glad that you're fine." Her words did not carry any hint of insincerity and instead of sugar. Her tone and voice could be compared to warm honey and silk, smooth and gentle. She was honestly glad that the seemingly argument between Sakura and Daisuke did not escalate and caused greater harm to both of them. They seemed to be kind people in her eyes. It was further confirmed when Sakura invited her to have a lunch with her friends. It surprised her a bit, but it was well-appreciated.

She was new to the school and hardly knew anyone except for the two back at the Principal's office, the doting brother Ren and his little sister Himeka. She wondered if she would be seeing them around. That would be nice. Now, she was meeting Michiru and Rin. "Nice to meet you Ms. Rin. Ms. Michiru." She smiled at them warmly in returned as she doesn't see anything odd about the three of them together. Sakura spoke again that she would like for her to join. There was no reason to refuse it and she finally revealed her name to them. "My name is Aina Malik. I hope you wouldn't mind me joining you three for lunch then." She was rather enjoying her day. It was starting to be a nice one and the people she was meeting were all nice. She can't help but feel giddy and good.

Sakura ushered her to the main hall and she followed. She was new and the school's layout is technically foreign to her. It does made her wonder if she could ever remember the places. She should probably make a map for herself in the journal for future references. That was certainly on her to-do list along with the people she met. They soon reached a bench enough for four as Aina took her seat. It was a good thing that she brought her own lunch. Her grandmother had said that bentos are healthier than cafeteria food. She has no prejudices about the meals the school serve, but she does listen to her grandmother. She has a sling bag which she opened and took out a rather medium-sized bento. "If it would be fine and to your liking..." She opened her bento presenting an aesthetically-pleasing looking lunch and actually looked very delicious even the smell which wafted from it was a testament to how nice it would taste.

"Please have some of mine." She offered her lunch in the purest sense of sharing. There was nothing else behind that as she believed that should be the right thing to do. The bento was something she had picked on when she first visited Japan and at odd times, her mother would prepare her one. But this time, she was the only one who made her lunch and it was not something she finds hard. After all, she was rather used to do household work as she was left in charge of chores since her mother was busy working. She then took out a pair of chopsticks and picked some of the veggies. The way she handled it was rather sophisticated without much effort, but her knowledge of using such utensils came from her grandmother during that visit. But she stopped just in time before eating the veggies, she blinked a couple of time and noted. "One should say itadakimasu first right?" She asked them rather innocently for confirmation.

"It is nice to meet you, Ms. Sakura."

Sakura's eyes widened. She wasn't used to such a greeting, it wasn't common in Japan, actually she had never been addressed in an American fashion until just now. Although this girl was definitely a threat, she simply giggled.

"I am glad that you're fine."

Glad that I am fine? How sweet. Sakura thought in an amused manner, although she would not have been able to say the same if the roles had been reversed. In fact she probably would have recorded the misfortune of Aina was on the receiving end of the stress known as Daisuke. She wouldn't have felt sympathy for Aina and she surely wouldn't have intervened. Sakura could tell that Aina didn't detect the ulterior motives in her intentions, and she almost felt like a terrible villain for continuing with her plan, but in the end Sakura only cared about her social status and flirting, though she was starting to set her eyes solely on Narukei. He made her nervous, a feeling she hadn't felt in a while.. Being around him was completely different than being around other guys.

Rin and Michiru seemed to like Aina, because they both were chatting about her until she joined them at the benches. Rin then took this moment to correct Aina on her greeting.

"For future reference, Aina-San, you would address Sakura-chan as either Sakura-chan or Sakura-San.. With those you aren't familiar with you'd address them by their surname in a similar fashion." She told the girl, but only in a factual manner, she wasn't trying to be cruel, simply informative. Rin's bento was plain and boring, but she seemed content with the healthy options packed inside, on the other hand Michiru's was full of color and packed with calories.

Sakura gave Aina a reassuring smile before choosing to speak, "Where did you move here from, Aina-chan?" Her voice was warm and bubbly, seeing as it was easier to be genuinely friendly when the girl was not risking her reign. Right now, no one was watching them, so it was safe.

Sakura tapped her chin, then decided to help out some as well, "Don't make the mistake of putting '-chan' behind a boy's name though, he might think you're mocking him." It was going to be the only tidbit of useful advice Sakura planned on giving the foreigner, now she could never say Sakura never did anything for her. The black haired girl took a bite out of her food which was decoratively packed into her bento and was aesthetically pleasing to the eye, very feminine, "Your surname, I find it hard to pronounce,, it's quite...exotic... You've caught quite a bit of attention, how does it feel being a foreigner in a strange land?" She was curious of this, but mostly she was trying to assess what kind of woman she was dealing with. She had to know her enemy, and if she must, she'd keep her closer than anyone. She couldn't let this girl sprout weeds in her beautiful and tediously kept garden. She would not let a weed sprout up in rebellion to everything she's spent so much time cultivating. She would crush Aina, mercilessly if need be.

"If it would be fine and to your liking..."

Sakura's attention was perked when Aina began her sentence and she whirled her head in Aina's direction. She wasn't exactly staring the girl down during their conversation after all. She noticed that a few guys were spying on them, so she hoped whatever Aina had in mind would teach the boys a lesson that it's rude to spy on girls.

"That smells lovely!" Michiru squealed in delight, which was a rare occurrence when healthy food was the subject matter.

Sakura on the other hand nodded in agreement, wondering who prepared the bento. It smelled wonderful, and if this was going where she assumed it was, this would be a perfect way to teach the boys a valuable lesson.

"Please have some of mine."

"I'll try some, if you use the chopsticks to feed it to me, Aina-chan!" Sakura chimed in an excited and giggly tone. Though it was only meant to ring throughout the room so the spying boys would realize the scene was about to get slightly "lovey-dovey" between the two girls. If handled right, this girl could boost her own status while Sakura slowly deteriorated Aina's from the inside out.

"One should say itadakimasu first right?"

Sakura, Rin, and Michiru all three nodded their heads. It was a custom, but even they forgot sometimes. At least she was learning. The innocent expression on Aina's face brought a blush to both Rin and Michiru's cheeks, but Sakura on the other hand was smiling. She wanted to smirk, but then the boys would have realized something was up, that Sakura knew they were peeking at the four of them. Making them flee in embarrassment was a much better fate for nosey boys who couldn't mind their own business.

"To all students. On your way home from school, please make sure you get home safely. There could be flooding. And if all students keep away from the roads due to the drivers. Thank you and have a nice day."

"They are going to call off school if the weather doesn't calm down.. Just great.. We are supposed to walk home in this?" Sakura sighed, hating the storm. She didn't want to get sent home, because she'd have nothing to do after leaving the school grounds. No one would want to go out in this weather..
