Description

Ryoko Takahashi


Image






Name: Ryoko Takahashi
Nicknames: "Most of my friends call me 'Ryo-kun', I sort of adapted to it."
Age: 17
Gender: Female "Don't feel bad, I get mistaken for a guy all the time."
Role: Girl #7
Romantic Interest: None "Yet...
Height: 5'4" "I may be short, but I can run circles around you!"
Weight: 112 lbs.
Nationality: Three-fourths Japanese, a fourth American
Job: Assistant coach during after school sport activities
Grade: Junior
Oddities:


Male Face: Even as a child she was first mistaken for a boy until told otherwise. Even though her extended family was told she was a girl before first seeing her, they all automatically said, "Oh, he's going to be a handsome one when he grows up!" all to her parent's expense. Not that Ryoko really minded, she might even admit to using her charms to get out of trouble sometimes with the female teachers, of course it would never work on her coaches, but that doesn't stop her from trying.






Image


Personality: As a tomboy to heart, Ryoko would rather shave off her beloved hair than have to wear anything remotely feminine. Her parents blame her older brothers for having undeniably boyish traits, but she merely shrugs it off since she quite enjoys the way she looks. At school she is the model athlete with the charming smile, but how she acts with people who admire her from afar and with people she is close to couldn't be more opposite. From a bird's eye view, you see a dark haired handsome student, but when you befriend her she shows an impeccable immaturity that you can find in a kindergartener. From playfully clinging onto her friends, sulking almost comically when teased, to the miniature white teddy bear that she always carries with her-"Did you really have to add that part?!"-Ryoko is truly a baby at heart.

Likes:
Spicy food
The outdoors
New sports gear
Loose, rather boyish clothes
Running, sprinting, track
Warm/Hot weather
Any kind of ball game
Video Games
Hanging out with friends
Manga/Anime
Secretly: Stuffed toys


Image


Dislikes:
Arrogant People
Anything scary
Being humiliated at anything sport-related
People teasing her about her rather childish side
Losing



Talents: Ryoko's always been with sports ever since she was taught to hold a ball. She practices day and night at any sport she can get her hands on. She learned to love that thrill and adrenaline that pulses through her veins when she is pushing herself to the limit. Not that she would admit it, but it isn't necessarily the best kept secret in the school, she loves the attention she gets in the middle of a game. The crowd chanting the team name, and especially her name, just as the final seconds are counting down and victory is just in their grasp.

She also manages her grades rather well, surprisingly. Since her entire sport career also depends on her keeping her grades at an average level, she studies hard and well into the night some days, just to make sure she at least gets a decent mark on test or quizzes. Sometimes though, when she's at a loss and can't understand a lesson no matter what, she may have to turn to her friends for help or tutorage.

Charming people comes naturally to her, but the adorable boyish smile she gives is enough to make older women swoon. She finds it rather strange sometimes, but with ever so overflowing confidence, she harnesses the boyish charms and uses them to her advantage, even sometimes abusing them. With a smile or a wink, she tends to capture people's hearts, sometimes more than often, unaware of the effect she has on them.

Flaws: Ryoko would rather die than admit it, but she has a terrible scare streak. Even the slight ominous feeling will send shudders through her spine and cold sweat run down her face. She's the least scared at school, even managing not to react when a friend jumps her from behind, but occasionally it will cause her to jump a foot into the air.

Hobbies: "Do you really need to ask?" Sports are Ryoko's number one hobby since... well... ever. She can dunk, dive, lunge, sprint, and hurtle through any obstacle you through at her. She loves the challenge sports offers to her and she won't give up until she can say to herself that she is a decent player, which normally isn't until she's won a few games. Her siblings encourage her 110%, and though they are able to beat her most of the time, she still pushes forward, straining against her limits to do her best and out do them at said sport.

Bio: Usually brimming with pride and confidence, there wasn't a single day so far in her life that Ryoko turned down a challenge. Her five older brothers raised her as one of them, sure they treated her a little rough sometimes, but they were always there when she needed them, when it came to school work, advice, or even just plain training. Her father is half Japanese, half American due to his father, Ryoko's grandfather, being American. He works as a well respected doctor in a local hospital, so while Ryoko's life wasn't exactly as comfy as her parents wanted it to be, it sure was mighty cosy. They couldn't always afford the best equipment, what with five sons and a daughter, but they always made good when they said they would buy them at least a mediocre set of gear.

Her brothers were a heck of a lot protective over their only baby sister. There was an incident when Ryoko was younger that she was teased by a boy a couple years older than her because she missed a few basket shots. Little did the boy know that while he was laughing at the little girl with the black pony-tails that her five older brothers were looming over his shoulder, murderous looks across all their faces. She never did she that boy again, but she didn't mind since her brothers always came to accompany her after that to make sure she was safe and learned how to make better baskets.

Her grandparents were what her parents blamed the most for her overconfidence and her over-the-top pride in every step. With them showering her with compliments every time she did something the least bit interesting with a ball. Not to mention her grandfather's little gifts that he always somehow managed to get to her the night after a championship game, no matter the result. Though they were small, Ryoko treasured the little cards, origami sculptures, and even just brief notes congratulating her on making it to the last round. She pinned them all up on a miniature bill board that she stores somewhere in her room.

Relationships: Ryoko grew up with five older brothers, which more than likely explains her incredibly boyish personality. Her parents, though sometimes worried about her, are entirely supportive of whatever skill she tries to harness. Her grandparents always greet her with a welcome smile and her grandmother always comments about how handsome her little "Ryo-kun!" is getting. It is unknown whether she knows Ryoko is a girl or not, but they tend to avoid correcting her, as that would just be rude. Her grandfather considers himself her biggest fan, though he can't always go to her games due to the distance between them, he always sends a card when she goes through a champion ship game, win or lose.

Thoughts towards Other Characters:

Girls

Holly Jade Evans: "We didn't really get along very well at first cuz she was pretty arrogant, but she's actually pretty fun once you get to know her."

Rebekka Jones: "She's so shy it hurts to watch her sometimes, but she's nice so I wanna help her break out of her shell."

Shiro Ren Minami: "I tried teaching her how to shoot once, I gave up after the fifth time she tripped on air."

Joannah English: "I know she's going through something, I wanna help, but I need her to open up a little."

Kaori Yoshida: "She's stubborn, I can tell you that much. She's got a mouth on her too, kinda funny sometimes though."

Kayama Hinamori: "I admire that she can fall asleep almost everywhere. She kinda distances herself from the rest of us though, or maybe it's just my imagination."

Tamika Kondo: "She's known as our back talking, wall of blunt sarcasm... I think she saw Misaki-chi (My teddy bear) once, I'm not really sure though 'cause I was too busy looking for whoever squealed."

Ana Yamaguchi: "It's fun to make her blush. She gets embarrassed by the littlest things, I wanna get her to have more confidence in herself though."

Boys


Jaemin Kim: "If you want the definition of average, you get Jaemin-kun, but he's the guy to call if you were to get into a fight."

Akiyuki Kawada: "He's nice, but sometimes too nice. If he doesn't grow a backbone people will keep trampling all over him, like they sometimes do."

An-Ren Huáng: "Prez? Don't really know why he took that position, it's just more work and stress. I think that he's pretty good with the job though."

Milo Jay Tonks: "He's smart, a lazy good for nothing, but at least he's got the brains working for him."

Delan Woo: "If he doesn't calm that attitude, I'm gonna have to rip the heads off his dolls... Or maybe just give his a good smack."

Kyo Yoshida: "What-why is he here?! Oh okay, good. I just can't deal with that guy's teasing." *pouts*

Hiro Maribara: "I owe a lot to him. He's usually the one I depend on to listen to my stressed ranting the day before a big game; when the school's practically glaring down at me to lead the team to victory."

So begins...

Ryoko Takahashi


A few seconds before her alarm clock was set to disturb her sleep, Ryoko's dark onyx eyes snapped open, her inner body alarm effectively waking her up without the aid of the screeching siren. When it did go off though, Ryoko promptly slammed her hand down on it before whipping the blankets off of her. "Ryo-kun! Up and at 'em!" The booming voice of one of her elder brothers echoed down the hallway .

"I'm up! I'm up!" She yelled back. Ryoko was never one to waste any time, even in the mornings when most of her friends moaned and groaned before squeezing in a few precious minutes of sleep. She dropped into a push up position, doing ten in rapid succession before flipping onto her back and lifting herself up, touching her forehead to her knees, doing ten sit ups. Footsteps thundered up the spiral staircase, and the head of her eldest brother poked into the doorway just as she was getting up off the floor.

"Is that all you're gonna do?" He asked in a teasing yet brotherly tone. Ryoko puffed out her cheeks in a childish manner, giving her brother a playful shove, before grabbing her uniform and closing the door on him. Her brothers were constantly making fun of her for her rather simple morning routine while they're usually off in their little home gym, lifting weights, doing pull ups, and even getting a quick mile run on the treadmill before heading off to school. Of course they were just teasing, but it didn't stop Ryoko from giving her usual response, "I wanna be able to go to school without smelling like I just went through a marathon.". Within five minutes later, Ryoko burst out from her room with her briefcase-looking bag for school, and tore down the spiral staircase down into the battlefield most would call 'the kitchen'. Food flew through the air and onto plates because her brothers didn't think it was worth the effort to walk three steps to place the food onto each other's plates.

"Ryo-kun, heads up!" Ryoko snapped her neck towards the call of her name to find a piece of toast in midair, going straight for her. With a challenging smirk, Ryoko kicked off the kitchen counter all to her mother's dismay and caught the offending piece of twice cooked bread in her mouth. Grabbing a butter knife and smearing some butter onto the toast hanging from her mouth.

"I've gotta get going, thanks for breakfast!" Momentarily taking her 'breakfast' from her mouth, she placed a quick peck to her mother's cheek before making a beeline for the door. A chorus of farewells followed her as she stepped into the sidewalk, starting her five minute walk to the school to meet her friends.

It wasn't too long afterwards that she bumped into a few female students (NPCs) that go to her school. If seeing across a busy street was considered 'bumping into someone'. "Ryoko-san, good morning!" They called across the traffic littered street. The athlete merely gave them her signature smile and a small wave, before walking off still munching on her quickly disappearing piece of toast. Turning the corner into the school gates, she was immediately greeted with several greetings of a good morning. Returning all the greetings, she quickly made her way to where their infamous group usually met, to find An and Akiyuka there exchanging greetings. Just as she was about to call out to them, a familiar voice beat her to it. Just as she was looking around for whoever it was, a flurry of uniform and dark hair blurs her vision as the ever so exciting adventurer, Joanna English, tumbles down a tree not too far from her.

"Tada! And she sticks the landing, Joanna English, representative for Japan!" Joanna, as far as Ryoko's ever known her, never takes anything sitting down and stands up despite her now rather ruffled condition. With a playful grin, Ryoko snuck up behind her and wrapped her up in a back hug.

"Morning, Jo." She whispered in her ear, hearing a few girls squeal behind her, she quickly let the girl go. She then started picking the leaves and twigs sticking out of her friend's hair and brushed off her uniform. She also sent an acknowledging nod towards the two males, "Morning, An-san, Aki-kun."

Akiyuki Kawada





It seemed just after he asked about her, Jo's voice called out to them from the school building. "Eh?" He let out an amused sigh and waved up at her. However his amusement would quickly turn to worry as she began to try and climb down one of the nearby trees. Really... She should've just taken the stairs back down, I guess that wouldn't be too long of a fall but still... Thankfully she made her way down successfully (And proudly declared it) and with a bit of relief Aki made his way over to her, just then noticing Ryoko appear behind her to give her a hug and beginning to pick leftover tree off of her.

He shook his head but smiled as he looked to the two, "Good morning you two." He reached forward to pick an errant leaf from Jo's hair. "Well, as a reward for your stellar performance I present you with this." He presented the lunch to her with a bit of flair, "Aki's handmade lunch." He gave a small smile and looked the slightest bit nervous, for one he wasn't usually the type to joke around but he sometimes tried when Jo was around, and secondly he was a little concerned that any onlookers might get the wrong idea about him giving a lunch to a girl. Though, on second thought he might not really mind that so much.

Milo Tonks

Milo didn't fall asleep till around 3 in the morning, so he wasn't too happy to be woken up by his father that morning. He actually had some of his experiment papers stick to his face when he sat up from his desk.

When Milo made it to the student council room that morning he didn't even bother to wish anybody good morning as he sat down and smacked his face on the surface below him. A slew of grunts and whines came out of his throat that no one would have been able to comprehend.

Shiro Rena Minami


"Oi! Shiro-chan!"

Shiro stretched her arms and came to an immediately stop in her little jog, where she'd probably have been sure to fall into the planters just beside her. She didn't turn around to see who it was, and instead, tried to guess without knowing first, 'And that person would be...' Shiro thought for a moment, comparing the voice to the people she knew, then snapped when she got it, turning around and pointing at him, "Akura-san!"

After seeing she got it right, she did a sort of victory-like pose before waving, and saying with that little grin of hers on her face, "Good morning, Akura-san!" It was only natural for her to call everyone by their last name, and add in honorifics. True, she was an idiot, a clumsy, tall, and strange idiot, but she was always polite, even towards her friends. It wasn't something that she chose to do, but something she saw that was necessary.

"Shiro... what on Earth was that back there? Running around looking at your watch and then tripping into a street lamp of all things... I'm telling you you've got to be more careful or you could get seriously hurt..."

Shiro immediately put both her hands together, as if in a clapping position, before holding them in front of her and bowing her head slightly while saying with a silly smile, "Ahaha, sorry! Can't help myself you know! Besides, I doubt I'll get seriously hurt! That's so rare it'll probably never happen! The worst injuries I've ever gotten are just regular scars and bruises and little cuts is all." She said, listing the three on her fingers as she went along, "See? Nothing serious! Anyways, anyways," She cleared her voice by coughing a bit, "Lets go find the rest of us in this huge group of freshman, now shall we?" She referred to the rest of their little group. (AKA. Group of Idiots)




An Huang


"Morning An. You're here early today."

An turned around and saw a blonde boy, being around 6 or so inches shorter than him, and looking slightly feminine. But An already knew who he was, and didn't mind the appearance of his, so he simply smile and waved, "Morning Aki-kun. Well, you can't expect very little of me! As Student Council President, I've got a few things I've got to handle, so coming here early will give me some free time later!" He said with a regular smile.

"Say, have you seen Jo yet this morning? I put together a little lunch for her since I had some extra."

"Jo...?" An asked, wondering who it was until he remembered, always calling people by their full first name at the very most, "Ah! Joanna-chan? Mmm... I haven't seen her today yet... It is a bit early in the morning after all, so she must be-"

An was interrupted when he heard a loud voice call, again, from behind him as he turned around and saw a girl with black hair, put into a pony tail, yelling from above them, seeming to attract the attention of many students actually, "Oi! Good Morning!"

Before An could say anything himself, the girl simply got down from the floor she was on above them, and hit the floor and giving them a proud looking gesture, "Tada! And she sticks the landing, Joanna English, representative for Japan!"

Often, An would get nervous, concerned about what would happen; She could have slipped and fallen, a teacher could have seen her... But An was so used to Joanna after being her friend along with everyone else for such a long time, so when she hit the ground, he only clapped his hands and shouted, "Morning Joanna-san! And nice stunt today!"

And just behind him, another one of his good friends came up, Ryoko; The male-looking young girl who was also apart of their huge group of odd friends, "Morning, An-san, Aki-kun."

"Morning Ryoko-chan!" An said with enthusiasm, as he always did everyday. Unlike some people, who referred to her by Ryoko-kun, he refused to add the male honorific to her name, finding it was insulting and rude, so he always called her by Ryoko-chan instead.

Next came Milo Tonks, the computer genius who could fix practically anything and was the smartest in the whole school. He sighed at the way his friend approached them all and said, "Come on Milo-kun! It's not very early in the morning! We've still got the whole day left to last, remember!" He laughed, patting him on the back.

And even though he didn't say much, An could see in the corner of his eye another friend, though he was a bit... well... different towards the others in their group. He waved towards Delan, that usual grin on his face and said, "Morning Delan-kun! You're missing out all the fun!"

'Really... I never knew everyone would arrive at school so early...' An thought to himself with a smile on his face, 'I'm pretty glad though, or I'd pretty much stay out here, surrounded by a bunch of strangers, not to mention how claustrophobic I am! Thank the gods they're here at this time...' He said, since his friends, The Group of Friends were always there to keep his spirits up. It was the reason why he joined Student Council actually, but he wouldn't ever tell them that, 'I'd probably get teased!' He let out a small giggle at himself, hoping no one heard since he was basically laughing at what he was telling himself.





(Incase someone hasn't found it out... For here, NPCs are in dark blue, Bold is a previous comment by another character or to stress the importance of a certain word, Green is Shiro's thoughts, Blue is Shiro's words, Tan is An's words, and Red is An's thoughts! ^u^)

"Ahaha, sorry! Can't help myself you know! Besides, I doubt I'll get seriously hurt! That's so rare it'll probably never happen! The worst injuries I've ever gotten are just regular scars and bruises and little cuts is all."

Ryu grimaced at her words. She talked about it so casually... it was if she felt such "little" things couldn't possibly cause her harm and, at least to his knowledge, they probably wouldn't. Still at the rate she had her little accidents Ryu had not a doubt in his mind that Shiro would eventually end up seriously hurting herself. It was logically, near certain. That was probably what worried him above all else.

"See? Nothing serious! Anyways, anyways, lets go find the rest of us in this huge group of freshman, now shall we?"

Ryu shrugged and followed her confidently. Ignoring the once again, obvious gossiping girls and snickering guys who saw him with her. *It's truly upsetting that in a typical school nowadays a male cannot be seen casually alone with a female without implications being made...* Ryu thought, but he erased such thoughts from his mind and continued to follow Shiro without worrying about what other people thought. Shiro was his friend and he didn't give two damns about what rumors people spread, after all he was almost kind of famous, he was used to rumors if nothing else.

Deciding to not let their earlier conversation slide so easily, Ryu spoke up. "Look Shiro, I know you think that little injuries are O.k. and granted, maybe they are, but what I'm trying to say is that if stuff like that keeps happening then you're bound to end up getting more badly injured..." He paused for a moment. "That's all that's worrying me about it, I know you can't exactly help it, but take my advice and at least try to be more cautious yeah? The last thing I or anybody else in our circle would want to see is the clumsy and innocent Shiro getting badly hurt eh?" He smirked as he finished his sentence. Ryu kept following Shiro after that for a few moments before he stopped. "I'd hasten a guess that An is at the student council room already... he usually comes early so if we're looking for the others we should probably start there." He stepped towards the school building and gestured to Shiro, expecting her to follow. "And please Shiro... do watch your step." The way he phrased it, it almost sounded like he was half-joking, half-serious.

***

Entering the building with Shiro hopefully still in tow and following the voice of a rather loud and familiar girl who would apparently be the "representative for Japan. Ryu quickly found himself standing before a large number of his friends and was shocked to see so many in at such an early time in the morning. He announced his presence "Good morning everybody, shocked to see so many of you in so early in the morning, if I'm being honest." He counted each of the people there, excluding himself and most likely Shiro.

Joanna-chan.

Akiyuki-kun.

An-kun.

Milo-kun.

and Ryoko-chan. Much like An, Ryu disliked the idea of refering to Ryoko as "kun" as he felt it to be rude.

"So how's everyone doing today hmm?" Ryu asked.

Milo groaned. "If you continue to touch me you'll increase the chance of me getting sick or harmed, An-san. So it would be wiser to not do so, would it not?" Milo grumbled, "And I do not recall ever saying it was either early in the morning or not."

Wow, he was not in a friendly mood this morning. He finally looked up from his place on the desk and looked at his friends.
He sighed, "But good morning... I guess."

Jo nearly jumps three feet into the air, straight back into the tree, when she feels a person's arms suddenly wrap around her from behind. Still, she is ever the adapter, and recovers quickly from the small surprise of unexpected human contact. The greeting in her ear tells her the identity of her mysterious hugger, anyway, causing Jo to grin once again- a smile only made more playful when she hears a few girls, probably Ryoko-chan's fans, squealing at the sight of the hug. It is made only more amusing by the Ryoko-chan's reaction, which is to quickly release Jo from the embrace and begin picking leaves and stuff out of her hair. It reminds the girl of a mother monkey picking bugs out of the hair of the child monkey. Is there a specific name for younger monkeys? Hmmm. . . the trivial question enters Jo's mind, though she pushes it back to be inquired after later, turning her smile to Ryoko-chan, who has now begun to brush off her uniform.

"Careful, Ryoko-chan, you're going to make your fans worry," she teases with a playful smile, the one that makes her eyes crinkle very slightly and the tiny mole on her face seem to shrink to an infinitesimal size. It isn't long before Aki has joined in the Clean-up Jo effort, one which is constantly needing more volunteers, because Joanna can't be bothered to spare a thought towards her appearance- it isn't nearly interesting enough, after all. As soon as he extends the little package, Joana can identify it, and her expression seems to light up even further. Greedily, she grabs the precious box away from Aki, and hugs it to her chest as though protecting a sacred item from potential thieves. "I love you, Aki-kun!" she declares, wrapping him in a bear hug, though one hand is still holding the lunch. When she finally releases him, it is clear that a great amount of self restraint will be needed to keep her from eating the lunch before it is time. She's already been caught eating in class too many times, though teachers have come to simply accept the fact that she is going to eat in class regardless of what they say.

"Can't you just live in my house and cook for me every day?" she implores, only half joking. After this, she acknowledges An and his comment, giving a rather dramatic bow, twirling her hand slightly for flourish while the other hand is against the lower part of her back.

"Naturally," her voice holds a false pompousness, as she stretches out the last syllable. Of course, when she opens her eyes back up to look up at him, they are dancing slightly with humor. They always seem to be doing this. In a flash she is standing up straight once more.

"G'Morning, Milo-kun, Delan-kun," Jo follows An's suit in greeting them, saying the last name a bit louder because the owner of the name is further away. She smirks at his comment about being teased, clearly amused by the fact that he thinks anyone would tease the beloved SC president. Half of the girls are in love with his face, and everyone else adores his amicable personality. Anyone who might seriously tease him would likely earn the disdain of the majority of the student body.

"I was thinking about practicing the high jump, for the first meet, since it's next week and all, but I took slightly longer getting here than I planned, I guess," she explained, facing both of her palms upward with a shrug.

Ana Yamaguchi hummed along as the battle victory fanfare song played from her old Ninpendo Portable video game player. It wasn’t often she got to slay 16-bit monsters before school, but she happened to wake up early today. She made a quick note of how much XP, Gold, and random items her party earned from the battle, then took a moment to see what time it was. I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun, she thought to herself, I should probably start heading off to school now before I get too carried away.

Ana saved her game before shutting off the handheld device and finished getting ready for school. Out of habit she took a minute to decide on which manga to bring along with her in case she had some free time later in the day, and ended up choosing the first two volumes of Magical Demon-Slayer Momoko-chan~! She hadn’t read it in a while, but it was a fun action-comedy series that would certainly entertain her if she was feeling bored.

It wasn’t long before Ana was already out the door and walking to school. She took her time walking at her own slow but steady pace, and being especially attentive at every crosswalk. When she was about halfway to school, she looked at the clock on her cellphone to check her progress. I guess I shouldn’t have spent so much time trying to reach level 10, but I’m not running horribly late. There should still be enough time to chat with the group before school starts.

Once Ana reached the school’s front gate, she paused and looked around to see if anyone from the Group of Idiots were around. The place was getting a little crowded with fellow students arriving at school, but Ana didn’t spot any of her friends. I guess they must have all gone inside already. I should check the Student Council room, since Huáng-san is usually the first to arrive.

Blending into the flow of students entering the school, Ana slowly made her way towards the Student Council room as she passed by several clusters of students (NPCs) all greeting each other and filling the hallway with conversations. When she finally arrived at her destination, she was happy to see the Group of Idiots were gathering there.

Good morning,” Ana said with a soft smile to the group in general, though a little unsure if anyone heard her amongst the chatter of everyone talking to each other. As Ana walked into the room she started making a mental note of which friends were here and which ones had yet to arrive. Well Jo-chan is certainly here, and already playing around with everyone. I don’t think she could ever hide in a crowd. Huáng-san is here too, as always. Is that Tonks-san next to him? I didn’t expect him to be here this early. I see Ryo-kun and Kawada-san are here as well. Oh, and so are Shiro-chan and Akura-san. I wonder if they arrived here together?

While Ana was distracted scanning the room she felt herself absentmindedly bumping into something, only to look down and realize that this “something” was none other than Delan Woo. “Ah! I’m sorry Woo-san, I didn’t see you there,” Ana said nervously and blushing slightly. I can’t believe I walked right into him! I hope he doesn’t get angry at me.

Milo Tonks

Eventually, Milo got bored and pulled a broken motorized helicopter out of his bag. He just simply needed something to keep his mind focused and hands distracted.

He yanked at some wires and twisted some screws. His sister had broken it and wished for him to fix it. And that was a month ago. He at least wanted to have it fixed by her birthday.

He glanced up once he realized Ana had come through the door. The action caused him to slip with the screwdriver and slice his finger open. He looked down at the now bleeding finger, "Well... This is rather unfortunate."
His mother was going to give him hell for this one.

"Morning Delan-kun! You're missing out all the fun!"

"G'Morning, Milo-kun, Delan-kun,"


"Mornin'.", he yawned as an answer and slightly winked.

Yeah. It was mornings. But it seems like not too early that everyone is still in their beds and sleep. He spotted Ryu, Shiro, Joanna, Aki, An, Ryoko and even Milo already there.

He was a bit irritated seeing An, knowing, he is there in the student council and again, makes all the things alone without any of the other student council members. He sometimes can really irritate him helping anyone everywhere. He really should take his time and speak with that idiot and get his act stright. Like so, he'll end up being someone everyone can order around. And Delan hated that his friend treated likewise, although he isn't goot at expressing himself as a good person with good ambitions.
He walked towards the student council room, having his thoughts filled with a clothes design. Yesterday, he had no time to finish it because he slept during the time he made the new doll model. He regret it now that he slept that time and kept it in mind to finish it during class. His worst subject was in the first hour anway... ah well, he was worst in any subject anyway so it didn't matter when he will...

"Crap!", he suddenly muttered to himself and stopped to walk. He forgot to bring his sketch box. Without it, he can't draw any designs. He sighed a bit irritated, wanted to start walking again, as suddenly he felt a bump from behind and abruptly whirled around, seeing Ana, the gamer girl.

“Ah! I’m sorry Woo-san, I didn’t see you there,”

"Yeah right. I am too small to be seen am I right?", he said irritated while looking *up* to her annoyed, not just because of this case, plus he was angry she was higher then himself. And although he was at fault too, standing in the hallway and blocking the way he didn't admit it and continued to complain. "Do you think with just a word saying sorry I'll forgive you?" Suddenly he had an idea. She was perfect! Perfect for him to use. He grinned a bit evil and pointed at her, rudely stated: "See as yourself as lucky, because I'll forgive you. Yes, I'll forgive you, unless you be a model for me for one day. How does that sound? Aren't I forgiving?" He had a specific clothes piece in his head.

"Although you are definitly not the best choice, I am hoping a good work from you." Having decided that all on his own, without even hearing any words against from her he yawned and walked beside her. "Now let's go to the classroom or the student council room... oh yes, the student council room! That stupid president should really give a rest. And the other members should work too. He'll overwork himself, that idiot. You come?" He finally asked Ana and looked at her, patiently waiting for and answer. "Oh, and I forgot to say good morning." He remembered and looked at her grinning a bit naughty. She didn't greet him neither. And he just love the feeling to be in an 'advantage', if someone can even include it as an 'advantage'... he is just being chidlish again.

Shiro Rena Minami


While she walked, she noticed a lot of people seeming to whisper and glance at the two, with funny faces in her opinion. She couldn't really say it annoyed her, since she wasn't someone to really get angry, but she was a bit curious towards why. Apparently it seemed to have been bothering Ryu a bit, well... at least, in her eyes it did, so she turned around and simply said, "Ignore those people. Doesn't matter what bypassers think, because they don't know anything about us." She noticed what she said may have sounded a little rude to the students around her and froze, 'T-that's... also like telling them off...'

Shiro sighed but stretched her arms a second time, keeping her eyes on the ground since it's what she tended to never look out for and listening to her friend as he went on, "Look Shiro, I know you think that little injuries are O.k. and granted, maybe they are, but what I'm trying to say is that if stuff like that keeps happening then you're bound to end up getting more badly injured..."

Just as she always would, she shrugged, a bit of an aloof expression on her face as she lifted her eyes from the ground and looked towards the school in front of her, "Doubt it! It's been like this for such a long time, and nothing's serious has happened, so the chances of it happening in the future should still be the same, right?"

"That's all that's worrying me about it, I know you can't exactly help it, but take my advice and at least try to be more cautious yeah? The last thing I or anybody else in our circle would want to see is the clumsy and innocent Shiro getting badly hurt eh? And please Shiro... do watch your step."

"Yes, sir! Yes, sir!" Shiro laughed care-freely, almost like a child really, besides her slightly matured voice that is, "Ehh... clumsy and innocent? Since when did I get that title?" Shiro turned her head backwards, and while doing so, as expected, she was about to slip on a puddle of water (Yes, a puddle water, indeed) before one of the students grabbed her and got her back onto her feet.

"Still falling, Minami-san?" The younger boy laughed before walking off. Shiro was mostly known in the school for being so clumsy, perhaps some of it from being in their little group, but everyone, almost everyone knew she'd fall a few times a day, and it's been a sort of trade move now.

'And we just talked about keeping an eye out too...' Shiro sighed and continued walking, now following Ryu since he figured they'd be in the Student Council room and took the lead himself as she followed behind, keeping her eyes out for any bumps on the ground or any small puddles she'd possible trip or slip on.




"Morning everyone~" Shiro exclaimed with a bunch of enthusiasm, always loving to be around the many close friends she had, "Sorry we're so late! Well... early... in some way, but apparently, we missed a lot, didn't we! Anyways, we're back!" She then took a chair and sat down, listening to all the conversations with a wide smile on her face.






An Huáng


"If you continue to touch me you'll increase the chance of me getting sick or harmed, An-san. So it would be wiser to not do so, would it not? And I do not recall ever saying it was either early in the morning or not. But good morning... I guess."

“Good morning."


An brought his hand back at the first sentence, being a bit surprised about his bad mood. Not that he was in a good mood very often or a bad mood very often, but he always saw Milo as a sort of calm guy, one who didn't react very much to anything. But that was just An, being An, it would be hard to expect any less of him. He slightly laughed and nodded understandingly before seeing Ana walk through the door almost at that same time while he put on another grin, "Yeah, morning you two!"

"Good morning everybody, shocked to see so many of you in so early in the morning, if I'm being honest."

"You'd really think thats's surprising for me?" An said with a sigh, but not really saddened or angry or depressed, more like a comical sigh that wasn't meant to hurt anyone, "I always get here in the morning, remember Ryu-kun? As Student Council President that is. If I wasn't, things would be terrible... hosting the events, that is." An rubbed the back of his neck, thinking of how out of order everything would be if he didn't take care of it all before and after school.

"I was thinking about practicing the high jump, for the first meet, since it's next week and all, but I took slightly longer getting here than I planned, I guess."

"Well, maybe Ryoko could help you after school? I'd offer to help myself but I'm certainly no athlete, the most I could do is cheer you on."


"I'd probably offer to cheer you on also... But I can't really do much with all the extra work I'll have to take care of after school..." An sighed, feeling guilty he couldn't accompany his friends, 'But... I guess that's the responsibilities of being Student Council President...' He let his head hang for a little bit. It made him sometimes reconsider taking on such an important job. Sure, he had a family there and he treated them all equally and enjoyed himself with them also, but he needed some time with his friends also, 'Maybe.. I should reconsider...'

While thinking to himself, An felt a bit of a glare, or maybe it was just him, but he felt a bit of an odd aura coming off from Delan as he asked, "D-Did I say something to offend you D-Delan-san?" He kind of already knew the answer though, so he just immediately said, "Never mind! Never mind!" before he could answer. Although there was a smile on his face, An couldn't help but let a small frown appear onto his face, 'Though... I guess he's right, in some way. But I can't say no to people... Not when they ask so innocently...'

Again, as he continued to think, An leaned back in his chair slightly and began to wonder where the rest of them were, "Ah... I noticed something actually." He then leaned back forwards since he noticed he was falling after Shiro pointed it out to him, "We're missing a few people, aren't we? Where's Jaemin, Tamika, Kyo and Kaori, and Kaya-chan? Kaya-chan may be oversleeping again now that I think of it... She's going to miss class again... And maybe the others are outside?" He guessed.

"Now that you think of it..." Shiro began, opening the window and looking down from the second floor they were all on onto all the students below them, searching the crowd, "I don't think I've seen them yet either..." Then, something, er... someone seemed to catch her eye as she tilted her head and pointed to a girl with brown hair, who looked a bit foreign and said, "She's pretty. Do any of you know her?" It was a bit of out of no where question, but Shiro was always a curious girl, and didn't hesitate to ask when she was. This was just another one of her curiosities again.

Akiyuki Kawada





Aki smiled brightly at Jo's reaction, his cheeks darkening slightly as she gave him a hug accompanied by a declaration of love. "Haha, well, I'm glad you're so happy with it... And well, I'm flattered but I think my sister would be pretty upset if I moved out." He chuckled lightly and rubbed the back of his neck, his gaze wandering over to Ryoko for a moment before looking back towards the group that was forming nearby.

It seemed that many of the other members of their "Group of Idiots" had arrived in rather quick succession. Aki cleared his throat and ran his hand through his hair as he did so often, looking over each of his friends with a warm smile. He was quite content with simply standing towards to the back of the group quietly, it was part of his generally timid nature. His attention was redirected towards Jo as she brought up practicing her high jump.

"Well, maybe Ryoko could help you after school? I'd offer to help myself but I'm certainly no athlete, the most I could do is cheer you on." It was his mentioning of this that conjured forth images of him in a cheer leader's outfit into his mind, instantly blushing at the embarrassing results of his own imagination. I don't think I could handle wearing a skirt that short... That'd be way too embarrassing, don't know how girls do it. He put his hands in his pockets and looked up towards the sky, trying to shake the thoughts from his mind.

Ryoko Takahashi


Cleaning Jo off didn't take much time, especially with two people doing it. She then proceeded to pout and poke the adventurous girl with a twig she pulled out of the girl's hair when Jo made the comment about her "fans". Ryoko refused to believe that she had fans, she wasn't like that, she just thought that they appreciated that she was working so hard and played a major hand in bringing the school's teams to the finals. She still refused to believe that they worshipped her, like Jo constantly makes it sound. The athlete did have the courtesy to flash the girls a smile though, in which they immediately chatting amongst themselves. Aki then handed Jo a homemade lunch, that the girl seemed to love so much. Ryoko could admit that she was somewhat envious of the boy's culinary skills. Don't get me wrong, Ryoko could cook, but only the basic things and only albeit decently. When the girl then went as far as to ask, jokingly of course, if he could live with her and cook for her every day, Ryoko took the liberty of poking her again with the twig she refuses to dispose.

Ryoko then simply smiled at An as he greeted her. She let an amused smile settle on her face as the ever so lazy Milo practically trudged in and threw himself onto a desk. She let out a chuckle as An tried to console the boy only to be shot down. Jo then called out to Delan who was some distance away, she merely nodded in acknowledgement at the shorter boy. Then Jo mentioned a high jump she was yet to master and Ryoko was about to offer to help when Shiro and Ryu walked in. She once again simply nodded her greeting.

It was when Ana walked in that Ryoko let a full smirk stretch across her face. Abandoning her place beside Jo, she discreetly and quite elegantly snuck around everyone to be behind Ana. It also helped quite a bit that Delan made a big deal of Ana bumping into him. While the rather short designer was ranting about how she would pay him back for apparently "not seeing him". Ryoko placed a hand on the brunette's head, effectively invading her personal bubble, which she considers herself to have been a master at now, especially when it came to Ana. Not too long after she'd met the girl had she found that one of her favorite things was to make the girl blush. She didn't know if it was the mere amusement she got from making the girl embarrassed or if it was Kyo rubbing off on her, but she didn't care, she just took enjoyment from bursting the girl's bubble.

"Take it easy on Ana, Delan-kun." Ryoko uttered, wrapping her arm around the girl's shoulders. Then a mischievous challenging smirk formed on her face. "It isn't her fault that she couldn't see you, you could pass of as an elementary school student with your height," Ryoko also loved to press buttons when it came to Delan. The boy's arrogance irked her to no end, but she countered it with shots at his rather tiny, delicate figures. Not to mention that he made dolls and dresses, Ryoko laughed for a whole three days after she found out. "Besides, if you need a model, just use one of the underclassmen again." It wasn't unusual that the upperclassmen "asked" the underclassmen to help them out with their club activities and more often than not, the female underclassmen liked to model for Delan.

That was when someone suggested Ryoko helped with Jo's high jump. "I'd love to, I was supposed to serve as the assistant coach after school today anyway, I'll just ask him if I could help you, Jo, how about it?"

Ryu was content then. Simply sitting and listening to his friends speaking to each other and laughing made him smile, it reminded him that he was, deep down, a teenager and not some pseudo stressful superstar like everybody else seemed to think he was. However such an illusion was short lived as the intercom blared to life and the principals voice, laced with annoyance and impatience, spoke arrogantly through the schools speakers.

"Ahem... would Master Ryunosuke Akura please make hs way to my office immediately. There seems to have been a little... misunderstanding regarding his current position... again. That is all." The intercom cut off coldly and without so much as a single warning.

Ryu could hear a few nearby students snickering as he stood up and frowned at his friends. "I apologise everyone... but it seems I have to go... I'll be sure to speak to you all later yeah?" With that sentence and a light shrug, Ryu took off for the principals office.

***

As Ryu slightly cracked open the office door and peered inside, he heard the gruff voice of the principal order him to sit down and shut the door behind him. Ryu gulped lightly and did as he was instructed.

"Tell me Ryunosuke, do you know why you're here?" Ryu shook his head. "No, sir." The prinicpal furrowed his brow. "Oh really, you couldn't even hasten a guess?" Ryu frowned. "I'm guessing it's something to do with my work?..." "Of course it is Ryu! It always is!" The principal interrupted before throwing down an open letter onto the table. "This, Mr.Akura, arrived on MY desk this morning addressed to you! Now, I have enough mail to deal with without sorting through your damned fan letters but upon reading this particular note, I find a request that you leave school periodically for a small portion of the morning to attend some sort of meeting? Now had you informed me beforehand then maybe I..." Ryu quickly butted in then. "Wait sir... a meeting? I assure you this is news to me aswell... where is the meeting? What's it for?" The prinicpal tilted his head slightly, seemingly surprised to see Ryu's own conclusion. "It says here that it's for some "once in a life time" contract and that you are to meet the producer in the park gazeebo for twenty minutes from now..." The principal paused. "Now look here Ryu, I am not an unreasonable man... I can understand that your lifestyle can be quite hectic and I admire your drive to remain in school regardless... but having mail sent to my office and leaving school before it even starts for meetings and such is not acceptable and poses as a distraction for not just me and you but potentially for the other students. Now, this once I will allow you leave, but from now on you make sure to receive your own mail and to arrange your meetings outside of school hours, understood?" The principal finished, standing upright with hands folded behind his back. Ryu stood up also and bowed gratefully. "Yes sir, thank you for understanding." The principal smiled warmly and patted Ryu on the back. "Not a problem Mr. Akura. Now I'd suggest you hurry, that letter looked very official and you really don't have that much time."

***

Thankfully the park and the school weren't too far apart from each other and Ryu found himself arriving quite a while before his meeting was even supposed to start. So in the meantime he decided it would be best to take a walk. Get some fresh air and put on his "fame face" for his upcoming meeting. He didn't exactly WANT to be doing this... after all these meeting always went the same way, he would get an offer, hear the offer, refuse the offer, then head back to whatever he had been doing beforehand. It was always an awkward experience and he never liked doing it... still he felt obligated to do so... as if it would be almost selfish to flat out refuse to meet those who offered him what they surely though was the ideal life.

As these thoughts swirled in his head and Ryu walked on lost within them he was distracted by a light panting sound. "What on Earth?" He thought before looking downwards. At his feet sat a familiar dog. "Pa...ku?" Ryu sounded out sounding slightly confused... "Well if you're here... then surely that means..." His eyes shifted slightly to the bench that Paku was sitting beside and Ryu jumped back slightly in shock at the red haired girl who lay upon it. How had he not noticed her earlier? He really had no idea. "K... Kaya-chan?" He spoke quietly, hoping to catch her attention... though he didn't get a response. It would seem Kaya was asleep... *Sigh* "Of course she is... I suppose I'd best wake her." He petted Paku's head to reassure the animal that he was no threat before placing his hand on Kaya's shoulder and shaking her gently.

"Oi, Kaya-chan, c'mon now, wake up."

Ana Yamaguchi

Ana hoped Delan would be in a good mood so he’s let her off easy, but she knew by the expression on his face that this wouldn’t be the case.

"Yeah right. I am too small to be seen am I right? Do you think with just a word saying sorry I'll forgive you?"

“I-I’m sorry, it’s not your fault. I... I was distracted and not looking where I was going...” In the privacy of her own head, she continued with: Oh no, this can’t be good. He’s not in a good mood this morning and I don’t want to start an argument with him.

"See as yourself as lucky, because I'll forgive you.”

Well that’s a relief. I guess he’s not in that bad of a mood after all...

“Yes, I'll forgive you, unless you be a model for me for one day. How does that sound? Aren't I forgiving?"

...eh?
Ana was caught completely off guard with Delan’s remark. By the time his statement fully sunk in, Ana’s face had finished turning pink with embarrassment.
“...W-wait, you’re joking right? You’re just fooling around, right? You don’t really mean that... right?”

"Although you are definitely not the best choice, I am hoping a good work from you."

Shock and disbelief had changed to red embarrassment and panic.
“No... no no no nononononono! Woo-san that’s too cruel! I can’t possibly do that, it’s too embarrassing!”

As if things weren’t surprising enough for Ana, she was surprised once again when Ryoko suddenly leaned against her and wrapped an arm around Ana’s shoulders.

"Take it easy on Ana, Delan-kun. It isn't her fault that she couldn't see you, you could pass of as an elementary school student with your height. Besides, if you need a model, just use one of the underclassmen again."

Under normal circumstances Ana would have been uneasy with such close contact, but if a hug from Ryoko meant not having to be Delan’s model, then Ana would want Ryoko to never let her go. In fact, Ryoko’s interference gave Ana a chance to calm down a bit and reorganize her thoughts, though being so close to Ryoko didn’t do anything to stop Ana from blushing.

“Ryo-kun... t-thank you, but... I mean, I don’t think you should make fun of Woo-san’s height.”
Why am I defending Delan? Ryoko went out of her way to save me from Delan, so I should be siding with her. But it’s not Delan’s fault that he’s short, and I don’t think teasing him about it is going to make the situation any better.

Turning back to Delan, Ana continued, “Woo-san, can you please reconsider? I know you like designing clothes, but I don’t think I’m suited for being a model.”



OOC: We seem to have a lot of characters who speak in purple text, so I’m changing Ana’s color to blue.

“No... no no no nononononono! Woo-san that’s too cruel! I can’t possibly do that, it’s too embarrassing!”

"Cruel? How come? I am being kind! Ya know-" Before Delan could finish his argument, Ryoko suddenly appeared and clinged on Ana. He could already predict what was coming with her having that cheeky smile on her face. Being alerted, he glared at her who's for him, neither a boy or a girl kind of human creature. He remembered how he had goosebumps after actually finding out that that high human being was actually a girl.

"Take it easy on Ana, Delan-kun."

Like he thought.

"It isn't her fault that she couldn't see you, you could pass of as an elementary school student with your height,"

And that could he also predict. She was so predictable with her argument against him. Still, it irritated him every time. "Sh- shut up you Giant not girl not boy creature! You two are just too high for the avarage people." He stated while sticking out his tongue. "What are you anyways? If you are a girl, act like it. And don't come with the argument that I make clothes and dolls! I heard that enough from you." Then he scrutinize her from the head to the toe and showed a slight smirk. "No dress will suit you I guess." He added, had that eyes that were looking down on someone on the face. Really thinking she just suited into boy clothes. What was not his business.

“Ryo-kun... t-thank you, but... I mean, I don’t think you should make fun of Woo-san’s height.”

A bit surprised, he looked back at Ana while lifting his eyebrow. Did he heard her right? Did she actually defend him? How interesting. A slight smile, that disappeared shortly after that appeared on his face, delighted to see that someone actually defend him, what normally would be the complete opposite. It was always him against the world, so he saw it. So he was actually a bit happy hearing that, still not showing his true feelings. "See? Ana understands me! Not like a certain someone." He said to Ryo smirking.

"Besides, if you need a model, just use one of the underclassmen again."

“Woo-san, can you please reconsider? I know you like designing clothes, but I don’t think I’m suited for being a model.”

Delan acted as if he was thinking, but he didn't reconsider anything. He was a stubborn child and will not give up until he get what he wants. That was his principles. He lifted his head to Ana and smiled as kind as he could (what wasn't quite a kind smile) and stated: "For real? Still, I want you. The underclassmen aren't bad, but they don't have your face and figure." He hold her kin so he could see closer to her face. He was quite statisfied with it, so it seems. "Don't decide everything before you even give it a shot. And trust me, that dress I designed will suit you perfect... A- and it's not a compliment! It's a fact." He suddenly felt a bit embarassed saying such things, but then he pointed at her declaring: "I guess with this it's settled. I'll measure you after school." He grinned, still not accepting any objections. If she were to decline, he would get his way anyway. So he thought.

"Ahem... would Master Ryunosuke Akura please make hs way to my office immediately. There seems to have been a little... misunderstanding regarding his current position... again. That is all."

Music guy? As Delan heard that annoucement, he didn't thought anything. But he did had a bad feeling, still he didn't thought much about it. Hope that guy didn't get into trouble because of his work..., he just thought, because he know how the feeling was that his work wasn't recognized by people. But he didn't want to jump to conclusion, so he just let the thing be.

"What? You spurn my affections? Reject my proposal? I'm hurt, Aki-kun. Heartbroken, even!" Jo laments, clutching her heart and stumbling back a little bit before falling to land on one knee, facing downwards but managing to maintain the hurt expressions. Of course, this little charade lasts only until another member of the group enters scene, at which point he begins to stand once more.

"Good morning back at ya', Ana-chan," Jo greets the more demure female friend with a beaming sort of grin, making a grand waving motion despite the fact that Ana is relatively near to her at the moment. While the two aren't particularly close --Jo suspects, with evidence to confirm the guess, that Ana can be a bit startled by some of her pranks-- she still is fond of the young woman, as she is of all of her friends. They are all incredibly nice people, after all, who rarely begrudge her food and aren't constantly pressuring her to do better. Immediately, Jo registers the direction in which Ana is walking, and her body moves before her mouth does, hand suddenly shooting out in a sign for stop as she lunges out. It is too late, however, and the soft-spoken girl runs directly into Delan, a far from soft spoken boy. The flinch on the girl's face is animated, almost exaggerated, as she witnesses the scene with the fascination of a bystander during a minor car crash. The damage is not bad enough for her to be overly concerned, but does draw some reaction out of her. This isn't saying much, of course, because Joanna tends to have some sort of cartoon-like reaction to most things, even if she forces the reactions because she finds them funny.

"Noooooo! Run away, Ana! Before he eats you!" Jo warns her, but the feigned urgency in her voice is given away by her cheery expression, making any attempt at acting completely void. The sound of muttering prompts Jo to turn around once more, this time facing Milo, who is staring at a bloody finger with a rather blank expression, not doing anything about the cut. "You shouldn't bully people like that, Delan-kun. It isn't gentlemanly," she informs him as a sort of secondary thought.

"Oi! Milo-kun! You should bandage that. Oh, wait," she unzips her bag and pulls out a handy-dandy first aid kit, necessary because she tends to scrape herself in trees, and because she hangs out with Shiro frequently enough. Of course, all of the band aids are various superheroes, this one being Justice League themed, and she spends a second staring at them before electing to take a Green Lantern one for Milo. "You'll make us delicate ladies faint with all that goriness," she scolds him playfully before crouching by the desk and extending the band aid towards him. She's still smiling, but only her nose up is visible due to the angle at which she is facing the desk.

"Aw, come on, An-kun! You can wear the miniskirt and bring pom poms! You too, Aki-kun," she offers, acting as though she considers this a deal clincher that will have them coming to cheer for her without hesitation. "An offer you can't refuse," she adds, winking in a manner so overdone that it is clearly meant in jest. Most of what she does is, after all. Those who don't know Joanna personally often have difficulty distinguishing her jokes from sincerity.

"The great Ryoko-kun is always welcome at my practice, of course. Kanade-senpai is constantly whining about you joining almost every sport team but track and field, you know," Jo drops an octave and lines her hand up perpendicularly with her mouth, as though about to tell some important secret. "I think she's a closet-Ryoko fan, personally." It is obvious that poking her with a stick will not do anything to deter Joanna.

"Goodbye, my love, my darling! I shall wait for you with bated breath!" she calls out to Ryu as he walks away, holding one hand to her heart and flicking the other about as though she is some Victorian lady, saying goodbye to her lover with the fluttering of a handkerchief. Having executed this with complete Joanna-style precision, she spins around on her heels and sneaks over to Delan, putting her arm over his shoulders -an action that requires her to crouch slightly- and waggling her eyebrows suggestively.

"Trying to get Ana-chan alone, are we? Delan-kun, you sly dog," she teases him, grinning as mischievously as always. Of the group, he is one of the most fun to tease, because he always reacts to everything with such. . . .emotion.

Ana Yamaguchi

While she would normally be entertained by Joanna’s animated and over-the-top performance of everyday occurrences, Ana’s attention was too preoccupied with trying to find a way out of Delan’s plan to enjoy it. It was only when Joanna stepped into the conversation did Ana realize that another friend was coming to save her.

"You shouldn't bully people like that, Delan-kun. It isn't gentlemanly"

Jo-chan! I’m so glad you’ve come too! Now with you and Ryo-kun we outnumber Delan 2 to 1! I mean, 3 to 1.

Not that this seemed to do much to deter Delan Woo. Delan was a very stubborn person, and Ana knew it would be difficult to get him to change his mind. It was about this time that Delan appeared to have finished thinking about reconsidering his offer:

"For real? Still, I want you. The underclassmen aren't bad, but they don't have your face and figure."

Did... did Delan just say I was prettier than the underclassmen? No, he couldn’t have meant it. Ana broke eye contact with Delan as she looked down at the floor, unable to bring herself to look at anyone. He’s just teasing me and trying to make me embarrassed. There are plenty of other girls that look better than me. Plenty of girls better suited for modeling...

Since her eyes were downcast and looking away from Delan, she had no defense ready for when he held her chin and turned her head back to face him.

“Don't decide everything before you even give it a shot. And trust me, that dress I designed will suit you perfect... A- and it's not a compliment! It's a fact."

Wait, is Delan a little embarrassed by this too? Does he really mean what he’s saying? Maybe I’m just jumping to conclusions too quickly...

Fortunately Delan stopped holding her chin and backed away before Ana got too uneasy with his proximity.

"I guess with this it's settled. I'll measure you after school.”

Measurements? As in my three sizes!? Oh nonono this can’t be happening. That information is just too private for other people to know about.

Ana tried to say something, but the words just wouldn’t come out. Meanwhile, Joanna apparently couldn’t pass up this opportunity to tease Delan:

"Trying to get Ana-chan alone, are we? Delan-kun, you sly dog,”

Ana was wide-eyed with horror and panic as her vivid imagination ran wild. Oh no, this is getting even worse than I thought. He wants my measurements and we’re going to be alone!?

I can’t do this. Not like this. This is just too much. I can’t believe he’s trying to make me do this. I have to get out of this no matter what. I have to be firm and just tell him ‘no.’

But... but he’s so stubborn! Even if I refuse he’s not going to accept it. No matter what I say he’s just going to stand firm and have things his way. This argument is just going to keep going in circles until he gets what he wants. Even the combined efforts of Ryo-kun and Jo-chan will only increase his determination to have things his way. It’s pretty amazing, actually. I wish I could be like that. I wish I could have the same determination and not budge until things go my way. I wish I wouldn’t get so nervous about these things and just speak my mind.

But what am I going to say? What can I say? I don’t want to hurt his feelings or tease him, and if I embarrass him it’s only going to make things worse. Isn’t there a way out of this without hurting anyone’s feelings? Isn’t there a way to mend this situation and still be friends?


It was a long time before Ana could gather enough courage to reply. Her voice was still nervous and hesitant, struggling to come out. “Woo-san, I... I can’t. I’m sorry for bumping into you – I really am – but what you’re asking for is too much.”

"You shouldn't bully people like that, Delan-kun. It isn't gentlemanly,"

Delan heard her remark rolling his eyes. He didn't bully her. That's for sure so he didn't said anything to her that time and other because he was concentrating on Ana. And Ana seems flustered and embarassed. He didn't like it. It's not like he will do something weird right? Measurements are measurements. Not like he is somekind of a perve... he didn't even want to think it and shook off the thought. But still, he was irritated with her remark. What is she thinking? As if he was a gentleman. He doesn't like to be a gentleman, although his bloodline requires it. He didn't care for his family at all. That was the weirdest thing of him. Although he have such a rich and known family, he doesn't like to brag about it. He hates his family. Well, but still, he was arrogant in other (many) things, so it should even all of it.

"Trying to get Ana-chan alone, are we? Delan-kun, you sly dog,”

Now Delan was getting more angry. "What do you want? I am not trying to 'get' her!" He was embarassed to even say that out loudly, but he continued. "I am... inviting her. Right! I am inviting her. To get to see some... things and then trying out my dress! What is so wrong with that? Are you saying that I did something wrong? And what do you actually saying? Please, you should try your jokes with others. Because I am serious here." He stated in one breath and looked at Jo serious, wanted to show her how serious he was. It was his work, his hobby and even his future after all. Although he is "sometimes" childish, for his work, he'll be dead serious.

“Woo-san, I... I can’t. I’m sorry for bumping into you – I really am – but what you’re asking for is too much.”

Delan looked back to Ana. She looks very... worried, nervous... and was she scared of him? He sighed. "Relax a bit. I am not going to bite you." He said strongly, without even trying to soften his voice. "Okay... first of all I'll ask you: What are you doing after school?"

There were no hidden meanings behind the question and his expression shows it all that it was because of bussiness. That side of him would be because his bloodline. Stubborn in reaching objectives. Then he showed a slight smirk, having again his arrogant face. "I guess it would be playing your games right?" He answered his own question by himself. "Don't you wanna do something useful sometimes and help me out? That's friend for right?" He knows that he himself wasn't a good friend at all, but still, he wanted to have the help he needed. Like always, an immature thought. "And to make it clear: You are NOT going to go on stage or something to perform them. I am just going to take a picture of you in the picked dress."[/color] Suddenly he grabbed her hand and hold it tightly while looking up to her smirking. "And I can guarentee, one more time, that it will look good on you. My eyes are always right."

Then suddenly he had an idea. "Joanna! You think so too right? She looks good in a dress! Say it! And just to infrom you: I am not bullying her, right?" Joanna was honest, so his impression of her, although she behaves like an idiot, she had a kind heart. Not like him. But that one thought he throwed far away into the deepest corner of his mind. Like hell he isn't kind. See?
