The Golden Academy had sent out invitations of attendance to only the best and brightest students in all the world to combat the impending doom of mankind known as The hand of Divine Judgement. The adults had their governments and military but the youth was to be prepared to assist in numbers. The Ishikawa family by tradition had always successfully been recruited to join the Golden Academy classes at the top of the ranks long before the prophecy. The Ishikawa parents were valedictorians and the eldest son Daisuke graduated already the year before. As the second eldest son, he was held to the same standard and expectation but the prediction of the future made his studies more urgent and crucial.

Jun was far from concerned. The world will end one way or another. This is pointless. With a confident gait, he neared the academy's entrance and all around were teenagers aspiring to be better than they are to save the future. Their eyes held a hope waiting to be crushed by the inevitable. Once the buildings turned to rubble and the dead littered the ground, he bet that the same people would end up the first to tuck their tails between their legs. He could sense it. A person's true nature was only revealed in desperate, trying times. It was easy to speak and believe in hope when nothing is wrong but as soon as something goes amiss, many lose sight of it and die. The world had fought back and survived before when he was just a little boy. The youngest, his sister Reiko didn't make it and if not for his parent's connections, he would have been dealt the same fate. He never forgot. All of his senses and body parts were intact but an important part of being human did die that day. Not every death during a war was physical.

An upperclassman asked for his name and rank before allowing him to pass through. A security check of sorts. "Ishikawa, Jun. Rank Gold." He stated his introduction confidently. The upperclassman turned out to be a friend of Daisuke but in a lower rank, rank A. The school assigned letters for every rank except the top who were bestowed a rank named after the Academy itself. Jun stared blankly because it was not his concern who befriended his brother. They were a family bound by name and blood and little else. "May I pass?" he asked, waiting for the upperclassman to step aside. He heaved a slight sigh in displeasure as he walked on. He wouldn't have agreed to studying here or anywhere if he had anything better to do but the world was a bore. Doing nothing was a bore. Jun almost couldn't wait for the world to end, to end them and their pointless existence.

In the meantime, he was stuck playing the role of Ishikawa's promising, living youngest. The instant he set foot inside the academy, there were a mixture of reactions upon recognition. Some of hate and some of admiration all because of who his parents are and their ancestry, judged on deeds that were not his. How he detested it but he was also painfully aware that people are not easy to control. They will do, speak and think what they like. Such is freedom and their right. He would not like his freedom and rights infringed either. Another approached him but a face he does not mind as someone familiar. They were classmates from middle school. "Congratulations." The frail girl blushed as he acknowledged her, his blue eyes looking at her in a way that made her feel like she was the only girl in the world. Her delusion was shattered as his gaze moved elsewhere, back to the gates where he once stood. Another had given a name, a name he could not ignore.

"Excuse me." Jun left the former classmate behind. He was caught in a trance by a girl who had just passed the security check to enter through. Never in his wildest or drunken dreams could he have pictured her here, in his reach. "Sakurai-san." he called out her name formally and kept moving until they stood so close there was barely space to breathe. His brain ceased to function as the moment was confirmed real and not a daydream. Her face was hers, her voice was hers, her hair was shorter than he remembered but that didn't matter. Without thinking, without question and without knowing why he lifted her chin, leaned down and kissed her. The students and staff of the academy gathered that morning became witnesses to his brazen display of affection.

xxxxThe line up for entry into the Golden Academy was tedious. Even if someone was foolish enough to pretend to be a student, they would have to undergo the rigorous training and academics to stay. An incapable person would stick out like a sore thumb or quit while they're ahead. Enrolling for these classes was not for the faint of heart. Faking skill amongst the elite was impossible. "Good morning! Name and rank please." The upperclassman greeted her enthusiastically once she finally made it to the front. Her earphones were plugged in but not loud enough to drown out the closest sounds and she managed to read his lips for the words she didn't catch. "Morning. Sakurai, Seiren. Rank Gold." Her invitation was received just yesterday and she was surprised to be placed in the top rank that was reserved for the most prominent families with potential. She came from nothing of the sort and there wasn't anything noteworthy about her that came to mind as a plausible reason for the placement. Students from her background were usually subjected to competing to rise in the ranks. But I have to compete with the cream of the crop already. This is rigged but I'll earn my spot or drop to the rank I truly deserve.

xxxxLost in thought, she had completely missed the upperclassman's congratulatory ramblings but he didn't seem to notice. "Anyway, don't let me keep you. Welcome to the Golden Academy." Seiren nodded and walked forward, staring at the ground and her shoes to keep her from bumping into anyone. She wasn't used to flocks of people all in one place and it made her a bit anxious. The music and her lowered gaze helped her focus on finding her way through. Seiren was planning to go straight to her dorm room and unpack her belongings but she swore she heard a male voice calling her name. Am I in trouble? Did they figure out my rank was a mistake? A set of shoes stopped in front of her and her anxiety was peaking. Whoever it was, they were standing too close for comfort and testing how long she could keep up a calm and collected front. I haven't done anything wrong so I'll look them in the eye and say just that.

xxxxHer inner pep talk was interrupted by the person before her who lifted her chin to force eye contact. Ishika-- There was no opportunity to react as they locked lips, her eyes open in shock and confusion. She knew him, yes but they had never kissed before. She didn't know what to do or what to say. The crowd she was afraid of facing was watching their every move as her hands started shaking at her sides with indecision if she should push him away or pull him closer. The reunion was unpredictable and the kiss most of all but it wasn't bad. No, no, no, no.. Seiren didn't want to have those thoughts about Jun yet she didn't stop him from doing this to her. When he pulled away, that was the only time she snapped out of it and caught herself. "You shouldn't have done that." she muttered under her breath, tugging her earphones down and out of her ears. No amount of music could save her from the eyes around her now as she pocketed it away.

xxxx"Was that a lace kiss?" The observers started to gossip and a cold chill ran up her spine. Truthfully, she did not know what a lace kiss really was. All she knew about it was that it was sacred and bound two people together for eternity. She could not let that accusation fly. "NO! He's just an idiot who missed me, doesn't know how to express his feelings in words and resorts to fumbling romantic gestures." Seiren lost her composure and growled out the first thing that popped into her head. It was partly true. The Jun she remembered was never an emotional type but he was not an idiot or one to fumble romantic gestures. The kiss was insanely out of the blue. What was he thinking?! I think I'm gonna faint.. Her head was resentfully counting the number of people staring at them and it made her a tad dizzy. So many people. She blinked twice and chose to walk away from the scene. There was no use reasoning with a bunch of strangers but she doubted Jun was going to leave her alone too. "You have a knack for garnering attention.. I don't see why you need to drag me into the spotlight. I certainly don't want it." she said over to him with bitterness.

"You shouldn't have done that."
It was just a mutter but he heard it. Jun's eyes diverted because he knew he shouldn't have done that but he did, causing a scene early in the morning before classes had even commenced. "Sorry." he said sincerely. He didn't mean to cause her trouble that would likely follow after. Already, he could hear the gossip and misconceptions. Jun didn't mind it but Seiren did without a doubt as she reacted instantly.

"NO! He's just an idiot who missed me, doesn't know how to express his feelings in words and resorts to fumbling romantic gestures."
Jun sighed but it was a barely audible complaint. He didn't like how Seiren described him but there was truth to it no matter how small. He wasn't a romantic and kissing was an aspect of romance. With very little experience, maybe he was fumbling. Instead of expressing how much he missed her in words, he went overboard. No one really said anything after Seiren's outburst and she didn't give them time to as she walked away after saying her piece. Jun trailed behind but he was uncertain. He had never experienced this awkwardness that was the aftermath of an abrupt kiss and her reaction was not favorable.

"You have a knack for garnering attention.. I don't see why you need to drag me into the spotlight. I certainly don't want it."
"Sorry." He stupidly repeated. He wasn't used to apologizing so much for his actions. An Ishikawa was deemed too proud to apologize except to the head of household under deplorable circumstances. Jun had never dishonored the family so it never came to that. He stared at the back of her sulking head and smiled. Things were strange but at least she was here and they were reunited. It had been a long time since Jun felt such comfort and peace. Now, he didn't want the world to end.

"I leave you alone for a little bit and you get kissed? Give me a break, Sakurai-chan." Masao saw it all, leaning against one of the school building's pillars. Once they got nearer, he draped his arm over Seiren's shoulder and smirked at Jun. "I'd appreciate it if you moved along. This girl is with me."
Jun's eyes narrowed at the sense of familiarity between this man and Seiren. The jealousy was rising up within him but he maintained composure. He needed a clearer picture of their connection to each other before jumping the gun. "Ishikawa, Jun. I am an old friend of hers. Who might you be?"
Masao's smirk grew wider. He had heard everything there was to know about the Ishikawa legacy. "An Ishikawa, huh? Impressive. Kinoshita, Masao.. her partner. In other words, the one who will bestow her real lace kiss."
