• Which stat appeals to you most: Charm

-Sera comes from an extremely wealthy family, her parents having quite the influence back in England. She doesn't like people to know and rarely speaks about it to anyone, even those close to her. She has certain obligations because of it and often feels trapped on a certain path.
-Even though her sister is the eldest, and would normally be the heir to their family business, she declined, dropping the responsibility down to Sera even though she never wanted any of it.
-Has a serious dislike for bitter things.
-Adores anything cute, especially children and small animals.

• Family members and your relationship with them/Who you live with:
Sera currently lives alone, sent off on her own to attend Airdalen High and gain the skills she needs to be the Katoshida Groups successor.
Saigura Katoshida: Sera's father and the one who believed it was a good idea to send Sera over to Japan and to Airdalen High. While he loves his family he often makes major decisions without consulting them, thinking he knows what is best. He is the head of the Katoshida Group and a very serious individual.
Camilla Katoshida: Sera's mother and an extremely talented woman. She often finds herself buried in work and forgetting about everything else, including family matters. While she does love her children she has always been a career woman and shows no real sign of change. Sera takes after her in a lot of ways though, her mother being quite wild when she was young as well.
Azura & Haruka Katoshida: Sera's grandparents from her father's side. They are both retired and like to spend time doting on their grandchildren, especially Sera now that she is in Japan with them. They visit whenever they get a chance, though they are steadfast on not disturbing her during the busy school week and not getting in the way of their granddaughter's new life.
Isabelle Katoshida: Sera's older sister and best friend. The separation has been hard on Sera and while she knows it isn't possible to be as close or spend as much time together with the vast distance between them, it is hard for her to accept completely.

Time for school!


Relationship Statuses:

Momo Yakamoto: Friend
"She is cute but I am not really sure what kind of person she is yet."
-
"First real female friend I think I have had. She is awesome in all aspects though and if possible I don't want to screw it up. Hope she feels the same."
-
"Absolutely adorable."

Bishop Trander: Acquaintance
"Cute but he seems just so innocent and well... I'm not."
-
"Seems to be not only cute but nice, although shy. Could be good friends in the future, we'll see."
-
"Still haven't spent that much time getting to know him, it will happen though."

Silas Fuerst: Crush
"I think I really like him... Why did he have to go and be all brave and sexy?"
-
"I can't help but think my life is going to get a lot more difficult with him in it. Even still, can't help but flirt... I want him."
-
"I want to see more of his wild side. It seems like I have competitors though."

Akira Miyuu: Rival
"She really dislikes me and it pisses me off, she doesn't have the right to judge me. Hard to avoid her since she seems attached to Silas. I won't fight though."
-
"I think she is actively trying to make me angry. I am doing my best to ignore it but I think I will have to confront her eventually. Some people..."

Kei Takeda: Acquaintance
"Nice body but a bit intimidating, I think he is probably just quiet and a bit shy, can never tell."

"Seems to stick up for his friends even if his crush dislikes him, I admire that. Not sure but maybe Momo has a crush on him, hell not that I blame her."
-
"He is more laid back than I figured, perhaps he is finally warming up to all of us. Hope so, a talkative and relaxed Kei is something I want to see."

Varthur Laurence: Acquaintance
"He is cute but I don't like how he handles himself. Maybe he isn't a bad guy but stumbling over yourself is only cute on occasion."
-
"Yeah... Not a big fan of the drunk and disorderly bit, at least not the way he pulled it off."

Devone Kim: Acquaintance
"She is a very sexy woman, kind of get the feeling she doesn't like anyone."
-
"Manipulative and I like it. Not that I like having my friends messed with or anything but back in England I knew a few like her... And they were... Fun."
-
"She plays dirty, even if I'm not the biggest Akira fan she had no right. I will have to watch out for her."

Mizuki Takizawa: Acquaintance
"Only sat behind her on the bus. Silas got his hands on her and she seems to be law enforcement. Doesn't makes sense to me for her to be here but screw it."

Kaoru Inoue: Acquaintance

" What a busy day."
A girl walked down the sandy path presented in front of her, only a swimsuit and a jacket on her as she searched for the the lucky Junior she was to babysit. 'Yumi something? I can't remember, but she sure is in for a treat. She's probably the luckiest Junior around, to get me as her babysitter.' an arrogant thought, as always. Miyuki was like that, the type of person to think so highly of herself it could cause her trouble. In fact that arrogance got her in a bit of trouble after most got into their swimsuits. She had openly stated she was the probably the best looking person here when it came to swimwear, seems that pushed a girl's button and caused her to get all fussy and argue with her. It was indeed a busy day for Miyuki, having to participate in some volleyball activities. Miyuki was never the one to enjoy being forced to do something, her poor team had to deal with her refusing to even help; in fact she caused them to lose the game. Not that she cared for the team, that's what they got for forcing her to play.

'I wonder how sis is doing, hopefully she can take care of herself for dinner.' She thought back to other events that took place during her time here. One of them being her wonderful sand castle. It was probably the most ordinary sand castle, but she was quite proud and believed it was the best around. It's like her to think that way, but she was angry after the tide took it away. Some did warn her if she built it too close to the water the tide would grab it and eat it up, but she denied it. ' Only the German army can take this castle down!' it's a shame she was wrong, but she would never admit that. " Maybe I should make a even bigger castle later, but this time a nice little flag to show all it's my castle and it will stand for all eternity." she was quite happy with that idea, a memory to leave behind, the sand castle that will be passed down into history, only to be known as the imperishable castle man has ever witnessed. Miyuki couldn't help but giggle at the thought, she knew she had to make another one later. Hopefully she would have the time, but for now she was on a hunt for a blue haired girl that went by the name of Yumi. Miyuki wasn't particularly excited to babysit a Junior, she was finally a top dog (even if she didn't look it.) and didn't want some one she had to drag about. Though once putting some more thought into it, Miyuki came to love the idea.

She would be the Junior's adviser, their leader, their GO- well perhaps not. The fact is, she would guide this poor junior to path of success and show her the joys of being partnered with her. Come to think of it, she hadn't even noticed the girl around and about, perhaps she never noticed? Well she was on the hunt now and ready to go. Perhaps it would of been smart for her to change before setting out, oh well the jacket will keep warm enough for the trip. Come to think of it, she hadn't really swam or even splashed much in the water now did she? 'Maybe a quick dip now would be OK? What am I think, the water is probably cold.' she quickly erased the thought from her head, she then noticed something up ahead. "Is that a fire?" pulling a few stray strands of her hair behind her ear, she squinted her eyes to notice a few figures around it. Some sort of party or something? She quickened her pace as curiosity took the best of her.

Now much closer she noticed two girls with their tops off and some beer around the campfire. ' So it's THIS kind of party' she thought. Miyuki wasn't exactly thrilled with the smell of alcohol, it was clear they were drinking. ' Atleast drink something with more class...' before she could think anymore thoughts pertaining to their lack of choice, she spotted the girl she'd been looking for (Yumi). Miyuki quickly knelt dow and grabbed hold of the seated girl " I have been looking all over for you! You know how badly I wanted to see my beloved Junior?" she placed her head on her shoulder rather lazily. " I'm your Senior that's going to be babysitting you, you're pretty lucky to get such a wonderful person like me. Some seniors would probably eat your pretty face, but I'm much kinder then that, in fact I'm probably the kindest person you will ever meet!" she smiled rather innocently as she held tight to the girl, afraid she might run away. Though she spotted a girl eyeing her a bit ( Devone). ' What's with that look?' she tore her gaze from the strange girl ( Devone) and took a look at everyone, she spotted a boy perhaps an inch shorter then her? ( Kaoru) She was quite pleased by the fact someone was shorter, even more so that they were male. " Drinking have we? I'm sure we are all under age here, you really shouldn't be doing such a thing for the sake of your health. I wouldn't complain if it was one bottle, but seems you all have been really drinking. She wasn't prepared to be a party pooper, so she decided to let it go for now.

Sera

“I agree, Sera. You should be a model. If you need a photographer... I’m adept at pressing the right buttons.” Sera winked over at Silas, "I bet you know which buttons to push... Of course I wouldn't model nude so the button pushing would have to wait until after the pictures." Sera didn't say anything else to Silas after that because what came next was Devone and her little revelation, whether she knew under the influence Akira would let it all out or she was just guessing, it had worked. As confused as Sera was, and most likely everyone else was, she knew it was hitting Silas pretty hard, hell it was obvious on his face and since that meant he didn't already know... Well anyone could tell him and Akira were close, it couldn't be easy. All bets were off at that point, flirting was put on hold and Sera looked over to Akira feeling sorry for the girl but also a bit mad that she would do that to everyone around her, especially Silas. It was not news you just shared with the world if you hadn't even shared it with a close friend. A sigh escaped Sera's lips as she took another swig of her drink, cursing under her breath and wondering why the night had to go downhill so fast. She thought for a bit, considering getting up and just calling it after that fun filled adventure or going to dance and ignoring whatever else was planned. Ultimately she choose to sit back and drink a bit more after all of the commotion and just see what else would happen and if the peak of excitement, or surprise, would ever rise above the current high points. While that wasn't happening immediately she was watching Varthur and the new girl (Yumi) a bit more closely, her eyes looking the cute girl up and down for a second before looking back to the now fearless Varthur. Another addition in the form of an Akira look alike (Miyuki) kept things lively, the girl quickly grabbing hold of the other girl (Yumi) similar to how Sera did with Momo. The Akira look alike (Miyuki) quickly began talking herself up and chastising where she wasn't really wanted. Sera didn't say anything but it made her lose all interest in the scene and she quickly turned away and looked at nothing in particular, trying to find another interesting scene. It wasn't exactly interesting but seeing Devone actually trying to see if something was wrong with Kei was interested and just as annoying as her conversation with him had been all night. It was the kind of thing nobody could really do anything about because of the type of guy Kei was, not quite gullible but willing to trust people he shouldn't. Devone was a good actress as well, going from mean to nice in an instant and while it wasn't going to change it didn't get any less anyone as time went on. God forbid Kei begins to have feelings for her... Sera once again began to look for a different scene to observe, her eyes scanning the crowd around them as well, searching for anything that caught her eye.

It wasn't her eye that caught the situation unfolding though, her ears got that privilege as she heard Varthur lose it a bit, “What the fucking hell, you’re drunk too and I wouldn’t be surprised if you exposed your ass later cause of it.” Sera smirked, that would be an interesting development, the true question was who it would be if that ended up happening. Akira was drunk so it could be a multitude of people, even a random guy in the crowd, if it happened at all of course. Then again she was aiming for Silas just as Sera was which meant it could be him as much as she hated the idea. Who knew, another one of those time would tell situations. It did seem that Akira was taking a lot of heat but when one acted like an idiot one often found themselves in such a situation. She turned to Momo after a moment and rubbed the girls head, leaning in close and whispering so only she could hear, "This nights become kind of crazy hasn't it?" She leaned back with a smile, knowing that no matter what all happened that she would be returning to her room later and getting whatever sleep she could before boarding the bus. She had thought about trying to chill with Silas all night but the way the party was shaping up she would be ready for normal as soon as it was over, and luckily she shared a room with Momo, which meant normal was what she would be getting, hopefully. It was then that Silas dismissed himself though, getting up and leaving the circle for a moment, and nothing much happened save a bottle being placed in the center of the circle and being spun for the first round of a game she had been looking forward to playing at one point but that point had passed. Sure she would still have fun but it almost seemed forced now after all that had happened. Bishop seemed quite excited as Silas came back, the boy like a puppy as he prepared for the first go. Sera turned to Momo again, "If you want to escape now is your chance, don't think I can take your place in this game." She said with a small smile, not knowing if Momo had kissed a guy yet and thinking this would be the worst first kiss situation in existence. Of course she could probably get away with a kiss on the cheek or something depending on the people.

Is it getting colder or am I just shaking because I’m nervous?
Momo thought as she looked around the circle and noticed things that were different like Varthur talking a lot more than he usually did, Silas and Kei unfocused and quiet in comparison since Akira’s story. She clasped her hands together and entwined her fingers, resting her chin on her knuckles as her eyes saddened and her lips formed a small pout. Why did my first party have to go downhill so fast? “Uhm.. just in case you didn’t hear it before, I’m Kaoru. What’s your name?” Momo squeaked in surprise as she was pulled out of her thoughts. Kaoru didn’t look sad at least, in fact he was grinning with closed eyes as he waited for her to answer. Momo paused thinking over what Sera said: "You don't have to say anything, unless of course you like him and then you could say thanks, although since he likes your cuteness then he most likely enjoyed your response." Momo started laughing a little nervously as she recalled what Sera said, still not knowing how to interpret the situation. She knew she had already seemed silly enough hiding behind someone when receiving a compliment but it had been an impulsive move. “I’m Momo..” she said as soon as she managed to stop laughing, pointing at herself and blinking a few times. Etto.. I can’t help but think I was nervous for nothing. She dropped her finger and started to rub the palms of her hands together, looking about in random directions. Maybe it’s just cold.. really cold. "I do get a bit carried away on Call of Duty." Momo caught Bishop say as he took a sip that made her smile. He seemed to be the type that was always looking out for others. She respected that.

“Thankyou chica, glad SOMEONE remembered me.” Varthur suddenly said as he stood up, rising with his beer. Momo’s eye twitched in reaction as she stared at her lap fixedly. Did the bumbling idiot just call me a ‘chica’? For some reason or another, she really didn’t like being called anything but her name from a boy which was evident in her first bad impression of Silas. What made it worse was that it was Varthur; one of her old enemies from elementary. Before she could decide whether or not to react to it, a girl (Yumi) entered the circle from a bump. All the girls at Airdalen are so much preetier than me.. she thought out of insecurity, looking down at her ordinary looking clothes and comparing. Maybe that was why people bullied her.. because she was nothing special. “Never have I ever invited a girl to sit with me! Until now. Varthur announced as many in the circle took their drinks. “Wish I had a cute girl sitting with me.” Momo heard Kaoru say as the new girl introduced herself as Yumi. Etto.. I overreacted didn’t I? It seems he says that to quite a few people to start conversation.. she concluded, patting the top of her pink head as if reassuring herself how silly she had been. Momo turned her head noticing Sera was looking at her. Oh.. right the game.. Momo remembered and looked down at her lap thinking the statement over. I don’t think I have asked a girl to sit with me.. I’ve just asked to sit with other girls.. but they didn’t want me to join them. Momo’s head lifted upwards as she waved a hand gently at Sera to signal she didn’t have to drink to this for her because it didn’t apply.

" Drinking have we? I'm sure we are all under age here, you really shouldn't be doing such a thing for the sake of your health. I wouldn't complain if it was one bottle, but seems you all have been really drinking.” I haven’t drunk anything.. Momo thought as a (Miyuki) another girl from out of the group approached them. She had her arms around Yumi so Momo guessed she was protective over the girl and didn’t like the idea of Yumi hanging out with them when some were in a drunken state. It was understandable but Momo knew her friends were harmless drunk or not, they were still the same people and had good hearts. However that wasn’t something you could just say and expect someone to believe. "Aw come on... There's no need for this." she heard Bishop mumble beside her in English as she sweat dropped smiling. Momo didn’t want her friends to get in trouble and this girl (Miyuki) may just tell on them. Devone beat her to words though and soon enough the second newcomer (Miyuki) joined them as well. “I’m Momo by the way.. it’s nice to meet you two.” She said politely, bowing her head respectfully at where Yumi and Miyuki were before looking up with a small smile as common courtesy. While she was introducing herself, she heard a bottle crack and turned to see Varthur looking angry and glaring daggers in Akira’s direction. He screamed something at the girl but Momo hadn’t heard it, a bit shakey seeing the bottle pieces scattered in the sand. She narrowed her eyes disapprovingly. You’re not ruining my first party with violence.. Her and Varthur were enemies for a reason and with that, came her own perspective of who he was as a person. She wouldn’t hesitate to put him back in his place if he decided to go more nuts than he already was.

Silas stepped in, laughing at Varthur’s outburst before leaving with a few kind words “Eh, don’t insult the ladies. They can show as much skin as they're comfortable with. It’s only your ideals that make it uncomfortable for you.”“Varthur , you can use my shirt to wrap your hand.” Momo blinked almost in disbelief as his voice of reason entered the conversation. It was true for her in a way; her ideals of women being conservative and drinking only when legal did make her uncomfortable in the group as well but she had managed to look past that. These were her friends and they were good people and if that’s what made them happy, then she wouldn’t ruin it for them. Momo had decided it wasn’t her choice and that she had no right to dictate her beliefs on others. She would just be there for them when they needed her.. like if the alcohol had reached ‘too much’ causing drowsiness. She would make sure they got to the cabins safely.. each and every one of them. What do you know.. even Silas can be responsible when the need arises.. haha.. she thought, sweat dropping. Maybe he wasn’t as bad as she had originally thought but either way, he was a big flirt nonetheless and she would be upset if he hurt Sera with that.. Not to mention he still dragged me out to the ocean in an utterly embarrassing display.. she thought as her hands reached up to pull her hair at the sides irritatingly, her head falling in between her knees. She didn’t like Silas but she couldn’t hate him either. She was completely at a loss of what to think. "Right uh... I'm going to get shome water. I'll be right back." Momo heard Bishop, causing her to look up and stop pulling her hair. What an idiot.. why is he so angry when people care so much about him. she thought getting irritated and glaring at Varthur some more. She was aware that his alcohol intake may have influenced him to be over the edge but still, the others were also drinking and weren’t reacting so badly.

Momo closed one of her eyes as she felt someone’s hand on her head, turning to see it was Sera. It was probably obvious how deep in thought she was. "This nights become kind of crazy hasn't it?" Sera whispered to her. “Yes..” Momo agreed with a quiet nod, catching sight of Sera smiling. Momo smiled too, she couldn’t help it. If her friend was happy then she would be too. “What about spin the bottle hey hey?” Varthur’s mood lifted somehow after the incident of his hand had been taken care of by Bishop. “Well done.” Momo said with a closed eyes smile in Bishop’s direction appreciatively. The bottle Varthur put in the centre started spinning and Momo’s eyes widened in more confusion. Wait I don’t know.. how to play. she thought panic-stricken. "If you want to escape now is your chance, don't think I can take your place in this game." Sera warned her with a smile making Momo sweat drop. “Should I escape?” Momo asked laughing nervously as her hands squeezed her legs together shifting uncomfortably, unknowing what to expect. Is it really.. that bad? Should I run? Momo thought wishing someone had told her what it was about before it happened. The bottle was already in motion for whatever reason it served in the game. I can’t believe I’m saying this.. but I actually appreciate Silas for telling me how to play first back there with Never Have I ever… She slapped her hand against her forehead in hopelessness. She would just have to find out the hard way. " I don't mind the game, it happens to me family favorite." Momo’s eyes glistened with hope as the girl (Miyuki) spoke up. Family favourite? Then I guess the game must be okay! Momo thought, sitting upright and waiting for the bottle to stop spinning. Just as Silas returned, he looked at the bottle in the centre then at Devone, seeming confused himself. “So… What’re we staring at?” He inquired. “Oh.. Spin the bottle..?” Momo replied, waiting to see what would happen so she could pick up how to play the game.

Bishop Trander


Bishop grimaced, and rubbed one of his swimming buddy's back as they barfed their guts out. He turned away, ignoring the wretched smell as the sand behind one of the cabins got wet with the sickly concoction. "It's ok buddy..... Just let it all out." He had some practice with this, actually taking care of one of his god-fathers Nigel when he got too drunk. After the sickly affair was over, a few guys from the team hefted the kid up and dragged him to his room. "You know I'm really glad my dad never let me get that drunk..." He sighed, and stepped into his cabin and looked at the time. It was only 2:14, and he figured he could have enough time to have a quiet little stroll on the beach with himself. He grabbed his iPod and headphones, along with a hoody and stepped out plugging his music in and stepped out smiling softly as a song played. Despite the ear-phones he could still hear the ocean, and it was calming to listen to that in the back ground. He looked up at the stars, and smiled suddenly having a want to go up there and explore. Bishop crept close to the surf, not minding the cool water washing over his feet. With a bobbing head, he steadily made his way carrying himself lightly softly singing to himself. "Weep, not, for roads untraveled..."

Bishop paused for a moment, wondering if he would get to see the sun rise over the ocean and with a happy smiled he realized it was true. When Bishop was younger,his parents told him that Japan was called 'The Land of the Rising Sun' and other legends and stories that circled around that. So he was eager to see a place like this and call it his home. He sighed slightly, looking to the moon and reached out to see if he could touch it. He chuckled softly, imagining the kinds of things he would do if that were to happen. Spending time alone like this, was something Bishop rather enjoyed. He liked to float around in his own head, where he was in control of everything and anything could happen. Right now, he was a million miles away from everybody else, the master of his own universe!! But anybody else would be welcomed, it was just his way. Lowering his arm, Bishop started to walk again after the song changed to some Coldplay (his favorite band) and he swayed with the subtle and slow rhythm just being whisked away like a leaf flowing gently down a river. His blond hair shuffled slightly in the cool breeze, coming from the ocean front. He wasn't really bothered by the cold, so wearing just shorts and a jacket while his feet were wet was no big deal. With a step back, he avoided the up coming swell and moved to have a seat in the cold sand resting his arms on his propped up knees just looking up at the stars. He pondered about what his time here in Japan was going to be like.... He pondered a lot of things actually. Just a 16 year old kid, trying to find himself in some way shape or form. Tonight's medium seemed to be the night sky. As if looking up for an answer, his eyes crossed the glorious night sky tracing out constellations he recognized and making up new ones. Trying to decide what was a star, what was an airplane, and what might be a whole'nother galaxy. It was marvelous, and a chill ran up the boy's spine as thoughts, emotions, and feelings all encircled and mashed together through his whole body.

With an odd expression in his eyes, Bishop grabbed a handful of sand and opened up his palm watching it sift through his fingers and back onto the ground. He thought about the logic, and physics behind just a simple act of that realizing his appreciation for being here at all. He wiped his hands clean, and stood up moving back from the way he came his eyes staying up as his hair was rustled by constant gentle wind along with his own motions. In a change of tempo, which accompanied a new song. He smiled, and got a bit of a hitch in his step wondering what he could do within the next few days. He definitely was going to get up early.... Probably in the next few hours, and go surfing before he had to leave. His thoughts went to Sera and Momo wondering if they were going to flake again or not. The hurt part of him, immediately decided on yes. That part couldn't blame him, he didn't really see why any girl would want to hang out with a guy like him. Girls liked tall, dark, and handsome looking guys.... Right? Whatever it was, he felt that he was never in the category of 'boyfriend material'. The negative thoughts, were pushed away as one of his favorite parts came up. Bishop closed his eyes, and silently lip sang as he walked along the beach his path swerving a bit since he wasn't concentrating. Upon opening his eyes, he found that he had drifted further from the surf than he wanted, and went back to get closer admiring the glint from the moon off the surface of the water. Bishop finally deduced to not really concern himself whether with whether or not they (Sera and Momo) would show up. He actually wanted Momo to go explore like he was tomorrow, and he knew that Sera would be making the best of her time here as well. Bishop glanced back, and saw that he was in front of the cabins again which was perfect. He sat down again, and leaned back moving his hands back to support him as he gazed on.

Bishop reached one hand out, and gently struck imaginary piano keys as the end of the song came. His body tensed up, then slowly relaxed letting himself go. He thought the ending was rather sad actually.... As if reminiscing about a friend that past away, or that moment when you had to finally let someone or something go.

He jumped when he felt a hand on his shoulder, and unplugged one ear-phone and looked up to see his father. "Uhh... Dad. What's up?" "Just came over here to check up on you son.... Saw you walking by yourself. Is everything alright?" Bishop blushed slightly at that, realizing that he had been watched. At least by his father to his knowledge, and unplugged the other ear-phone pausing his music. "Uhh.... Y-Yeah, I'm fine dad. Just enjoying a walk on the beach I guess. How was your party?" His father smiled softly, and nodded taking a seat with his son. "Ours was fine... I saw that yours went well too. You kiss any girl?" The larger muscled version of Bishop chuckled nudging the smaller suggestively. The young junior's face flushed red, and he crossed his arms. "Uhh... Yeah. Twice... With the same girl." "That's my boy!! You'll be married in no time!!" "Dad!!!" "I'm kidding... But seriously son. As a father, I am proud of you. Also that you didn't drink to much!!" His father laughed when Bishop shushed him. But the wide smile on his face, was honest. To a father, it was extremely fulfilling to see their child grow and succeed. "Welp... I'll leave you to ponder the universe. Get some good rest, and take care of yourself son. I gotta pick up the troops passed out in the sand, can't leave'em sleeping there all night. I'll see you soon.". Bishop's father stood up, and gave the thumbs up with a masculine wink as he walked away looking back.

"See ya dad..... And thanks.". Bishop sat there, watching him walk away once again being alone. Bishop sighed, and turned back to the ocean chewing his lip slightly. This time without music, his current situation set in and he once again wondered like he always had.... <Why am I alone?> Sure he understood, it was hard to make and keep friends when you moved around a lot. But something about him.... He was sure it was him! That always kept him left out of the group, or thought of last. Not even swimming helped with that, though he was a strong contender in the pool. He put his ear-phones back in and pressed play and went back to his music. With a gentle frown, his mind dove deeper into his current state of mind reflecting back on his past and events that played out. His eyes widened at the sudden realization that, that was the reason why his dad came over. His head slumped, as his knees curled up his earlier mood being somewhat ruined. He thoughts of ways to improve... <Should I be louder? Cooler? How do you even BE cooler? Maybe more like... Silas.... I don't know.>, he realized that he was rather the opposite of Akira. A little sideways smirk grew on his face, but it didn't last for very long. Sure she was 'popular' but a lot of flak came with that as he noticed earlier tonight. He shook his head not wanting that, but also had an urge to talk with the girl (Akira). Maybe another time... With a quick glance up, he noticed that the moon had changed position. He decided that it was time to go to bed, and stood up brushing the sand off of him. He paced back to the cabins, flipping his hood up wondering how Kei managed to balance it out. He probably just as quiet as him, but seemed to get along just fine socially. Not seeing anybody he knew (which was probably about 10 people), he just went straight to his cabin and took a shower so he wouldn't have to tomorrow morning. He dried himself off, and put on his only other pair of boxers and slipped into bed. He set an alarm for only a few hours later, he knew he could sleep on the bus. Looking around, he didn't see anybody else or signs of other people in the cabin with him which made him frown once again. Turning to face the wall, he curled up and closed his eyes to sleep. "Some sleep, and surf will clear my thoughts.". Before he fell asleep, Bishop had a quick thought over Devone. Not that she was the single person he thought about before he fell asleep, but he just wondered what was the reasoning behind her calling Akira out. His father taught him how to sift through bullshit, but he was still a little rough at it. Had his old pen pal really changed? He could remember only so much, but he had thought better of her. Why was she hear anyways? It was all very odd, and before he could finish his thoughts Bishop fell asleep.

Sera

Sera was no stranger to hangovers, she had her fair share from the severe to the mild, but before she even opened her eyes it was clear that the current one wasn't going to be so fun. The redeeming factor was discovered when she opened her eyes though, a nice soft bed that was keeping her plenty comfortable, closed shutters so the room was nice and dark, and a cute little Momo just rising from her own slumber. Sera didn't rise from bed quite yet, instead she rolled over and stared up at the ceiling for awhile, trying to get awake and at the same time sort out her recollection of the events from the night before. The party wasn't hazy, she could handle her alcohol well enough but then came spin the bottle and while the first part of the game was easy enough to remember she had to strain to remember the entire thing. It was worth the remembering though, a very fun night as far as she was concerned, sure the never have I ever had been entertaining but spin the bottle... That was something else. Her first kiss with Kei came to mind first and the memory wasn't a bad one as far as kissing went, the male was a bit shy about it but it was cute. As she ran through her next kiss a smirk came to her face, her and Akira had been paired together and Sera took full advantage to make the other girl uncomfortable, not only kissing her but making quite a spectacle out of the whole thing, going for it seriously just to mess with her apparent rival. No doubt that kiss and the one she shared with the new girl Yumi had been more enjoyable for her than for them, because for Sera kissing a cute girl wasn't awkward or uncomfortable in the least.

Between her own fun little kisses and the many interesting pairings brought together in the game Sera just couldn't sit still. Just the thought of seeing peoples faces after that made her want to get up and start her day, hangover or not. So she sat up in bed, looking over at Momo, only slightly jealous that she got to kiss Silas, and muttered a tired yet strangely cheerful "Good morning." From her friends actions it seemed she had places to be, and as she stared at the girl she made a guess at what that might be, surfing with Bishop. The memories of the night before included a quite drunk Bishop but also her telling him she would try to surf with him this morning, along with Momo. As much as the idea of light and noise bothered her she couldn't let herself stand him up again. So she rose from the bed, glad to find she had somehow slipped back into her shirt and was missing nothing. The girl stumbled a bit when she first got out of the bed and onto her feet but after standing for a second and rubbing the sleep out of her eyes she soon found her balance again. She went over to the counter and grabbed her bag, unzipping it and rustling through for her phone, using it to check the time out of habit, and then shoving it back inside. More pressing was a change of clothing, she reached in and pulled out a new swimsuit, one that made her prior look a tad conservative. It was a dark black swimsuit, no design but more for show than anything else.

Sera grabbed the two-piece swimsuit and put it on the counter, grabbing a tie for her hair and putting it on her wrist in case she needed it, deciding to shower after getting into the salt water again instead of both before and after. It was only when she had pulled the swimsuit out that she turned to Momo again, a small smile on her face, "Hope last night wasn't too horrible, I know parties can be a bit much at times but I hope you had fun." She spun around, leaning on the counter where her bag was and facing her friend, "But, that doesn't matter so much, are you going out to surf with Bishop? I figure standing him up again would be rude and if you are we can go together." She still sounded a tad groggy but it was just because she wasn't awake yet, once Sera got awake she would be fine, besides as long as she drank a bit of water she would be just fine, or at least good enough to keep a smile on her face despite the throbbing of her head.

Bishop Trander


Bishop sighed when his cellphone alarm went off. He rolled over, and picked up his phone and shut it off sitting up. With a yawn, and swung his feet over the bed and stood up wearing nothing but his boxers with the design of the British flag on it. He didn't even realize that Kaoru was in the room with him!! "Well.... The surf should be right by now." He had gotten up much earlier right when the sun was rising to see where the surf was. He managed to get a 47 minute nap in waiting for it before he would go out and surf for the last time. Leaning back and stretching his arms out, Bishop let a few bones in his shoulder pop then sighed happily rolling his shoulders. He went to his already half packed bag and grabbed his trunks walking to the bathroom starting to tug on his boxers. But something blue caught his eye. Half his body blocked off by the door frame, he leaned back and blinked seeing Kaoru and suddenly blushed a deep red. He immediately pulled his boxers back up, jumping behind the door. "W-When did you get in here!?!?!?!" He stared at the short kid, as he sat in bed looking back at him leaving the blonde extremely embarrassed. <How much did he see!?> Bishop wasn't homophobic in the least, but he thought he was by himself and.... It was just always embarrassing when you find out someone was watching you when you thought you were alone.

Bishop would duck into the bathroom and change, then come out in his swim trunks putting his boxers in his bag. He stood there kinda awkwardly, and walked to his surfboard grabbing it. "Uhhh.... Don't worry about it. I should've paid more attention around me. You're Kaoru right?" He reflected on the day before, meeting the kid first with Varthur and Miami.... That thought kinda saddened him, seeing as he hadn't seen her since the two parted ways. He hoped she was alright, getting worried for the first friend he made here. He shook those thoughts off, and grabbed his board wax and some sunscreen. "I'm gonna surf for a bit... Feel free to join me down at the beach." With a smile and nod, he took off and walked barefoot through the cabins and out to the sand. He watched a black haired girl stand at the water's edge (Devone) and wondered who she was. Though he had a sneaking suspicion about who it was. Bishop sat down quietly after laying his towel out and began to wax his board patently. When he was satisfied, he strapped the velcro collar on his ankle and hefted his board under his arm and walked out to the water with a gentle smile. The ocean always calmed him, being in water in general did that actually.

Bishop didn't look back behind him, and paddled out over the swells diving under a break. He gasped for air when he came up, and smiled that cool nice water washing over his body. Bishop continued out, until he was passed the break and sat up straddling his board looking over the scene before him. His smile grew in size, so far the only thing in his view was the beach and Devone standing there. He noticed that she seemed content with being alone, so decided it would be best to not bother her and surf not in her direction. Laying back Down, Bishop paddled towards shore and would increase his speed to pick up a wave. When the swell formed, he stood up and laughed softly as the water propelled him forward as he zig zagged, and cut across the water quickly. The junior cut towards shore as the wave broke, and his moment stopped but eventually he got to where he could touch his feet on the ground. He looked over to the dark haired senior (Devone) still smiling, just to see if she was watching him. He would be surprised if she was, not that he was trying to show off or anything but the girl (Devone) seemed to dislike him more with each visit they had which confused Bishop. Sure anyone might be a bit hurt that he lost contact with her, but that was unintentional. So, Bishop just paddled back out to catch more waves and mind his own business. All the while, he wondered if Sera and Momo would actually show up. Or if they would blow him off like last time.

"Good morning." Momo snapped out of her morning rage as she heard Sera greet her. “Ah, morning!” Momo greeted back, a bit hastily as she felt out of place moving from emotion to emotion. She watched as Sera rose from her bed and couldn’t help but giggle a little. Her friend Sera was always laid back and cool, much like a model prepared for paparazzi awaiting around the corner; never losing face or doing anything in the least shy or seemingly unrehearsed, so her morning side of tiredly rubbing her eyes and forcing herself out of bed reminded Momo that she was human too. She stopped giggling though when she noticed a bit of a stumble but soon enough, Sera had managed to find her balance. As Sera started rustling through her things, Momo lost herself in thought of last night.

-Flashback-
Momo was speechless as the bottle pointed to Varthur across from her, her left eye twitching in disbelief. She had been reassured for a while that this game of ‘spin the bottle’ wasn’t so bad when the newcomer senior (Mizuki) said it was a family favourite. Now instead of reassurance, it was serving as a disturbance after Momo had already witnessed the game first hand. Was she the only one with a problem with this?
Varthur was drunk though and easily rose from his place like a zombie, as if he forgot everything in their misunderstood childhood past. “Y-you sit back down!” Momo ordered as she pointed at him threateningly but when he wasn’t, started to back away. Although there were no corners to run and hide in, she felt cornered as her childhood enemy only came closer out of his usual self. Momo knew she could always run, but half of her didn’t believe Varthur would even dare.
--
As if fate was laughing at her, the bottle again landed on an unfortunate outcome. She pulled the sides of her hair stressing, entering into a staring contest with her lap. It wasn’t just because she disliked Silas, it was also because Sera liked Silas. Was there some way she could transfer the turn over to her? “I can’t.” she said softly, but with a serious ring to it as the group waited for the turn to take place. “There’s no way! Never!” she raised her head, glaring at Silas as if he was forcing her into it in the first place. Momo folded her arms defiantly, let out a stubborn “Hmph” before turning her gaze to the side to show disinterest and disgust in the very idea.

-End of Flashback-

Momo shuddered in her pink and white two-piece because it was feeling a little cold in the room and the flashbacks were far from enjoyable. Why was her luck so bad? She looked over at Sera wondering if deep down she was upset with her, because Silas and her had shared a kiss. Momo didn’t want it! But it had happened and she couldn’t take it back. She clenched her fist glaring at the opposite wall. Damn you Silas, I would kill you along with Varthur if I could. she thought with gritted teeth until Sera snapped her out of it again. "Hope last night wasn't too horrible, I know parties can be a bit much at times but I hope you had fun." Sera said with a warm smile that made Momo drop her fist with a little shame. Ah.. I was so obviously thinking about it. Momo laughed nervously, rubbing the back of her pink covered head as she replied, “Haha well..” Momo sighed as her flip flops tapped one another. “I just..” Momo stared at her feet a little sadly, a pout forming on her face. “I always imagined things would turn out different, I thought my first kiss would be special.. and with someone who at least actually likes me and who I actually like in return..” she shared her thoughts before putting on a confident smile, trying to hide how much it had bothered her. It was her first party, she was glad for that.. but if she could have changed the outcome in the end.. she probably would have. Was she feeling a pang of regret? Maybe.. but there was no changing past. "But, that doesn't matter so much, are you going out to surf with Bishop? I figure standing him up again would be rude and if you are we can go together." Momo’s spirits lifted as she was given something else to think about and draw her attention to. With a swift nod, she threw a baby blue towel over her shoulder, out of habit covering the bunny ears birthmark. “Yeah!” She fist pumped. “Let’s go, can’t wait to go home and tell mom I can surf.” She said enthusiastically, leading the way out the door when Sera was prepared to leave.

Sera

Momo had said something about her first kiss but it seemed like she didn't really want to talk about it. Not that Sera blamed her, last nights game was not a good way to lose a first kiss, then again there was no love or passion in either of her kisses so she would still be surprised when it really happened for the first time, when that day came she would completely forget about both Varthur and Silas. She thought about voicing her opinion but decided to just let it go and let her forget about it as soon as possible, because while it was Sera's desire to press her lips up against Silas' it was surely not Momo's. She had gotten to kiss some girls the night before though and that was always fun, especially her kiss with Akira as she recalled it in a bit more detail. At one point they had gone farther than Sera expected not expecting the girl to use a bit of tongue. Sera hadn't backed down and had finally ended up just pushing the girl back onto the sand and going back with even more intensity. She had ended it pretty quickly after that, not wanting to give everyone too much of a show but she had gotten quite caught up in it at one point, even finding it slightly enjoyable. She would have to use that to mess with the girl if she could, see if the sober Akira was as okay with using tongue as her drunk self. Sure she had said she wouldn't provoke her but this was more for her personal fun than anything to do with a rivalry.

Momo's enthusiasm kept her mind from wandering for long, the energetic girl ready to run out onto the beach. "Alright, just give me a minute, I need to toss on a new swimsuit." She slipped into the bathroom, not even bothering to close the door, and slipped out of her current clothing and into the new revealing black bikini. She looked in the mirror for a moment to adjust it but didn't dally too long before exiting the bathroom and walking over to the door next to her friend, "I'm ready now, let's go ride a few waves." With a small smile she opened up the door and slipped past Momo, letting her eyes adjust to the light before turning around to look at Momo, "My hangover isn't as bad as I thought." She gave a cheerful smile before spinning back around and leading the way towards the beach, she wanted to make sure they didn't keep Bishop waiting and Momo seemed pretty eager as well, and with fun just around the corner she was hustling a bit. Even in the early morning she was getting looks from people on the beach, some looks of jealousy, some looks of intrigue, and others of the usual kind from guys who didn't even try to hide their stares. She didn't mind them, it was what happened when she wore a bikini and especially the type she was currently wearing, she didn't even hesitate to make her way on the beach and search for Bishop with Momo.

It wasn't hard to find Bishop, he was out on a wave riding it in to shore by the time Sera spotted him and she walked over to the edge of the water near him. "Hey there, you look to be in top for even after last night, good to see." It was a bit surprising after how intoxicated he had become but it was a good thing, if he could bounce back so quickly it would be a good day and an impressive feat. "Ready to give us a few lessons teach?" She asked soon after, putting on a cute look and kicking the sand with her foot as if shy before falling back into her usual self and turning to Momo to wave her over. She knew they would have to rent some boards but Momo would need to hear some basics before they should go get her a board. She let her attention fall to the water as she waited for Momo to get over to them and Bishop to answer. The waves looked alright, not as nice as back home but not bad either, it would be great for a beginner like Momo and on such soft waves she would be able to show off a tiny bit, not as good as Bishop but still, it would be interesting.

MOMO


"Alright, just give me a minute, I need to toss on a new swimsuit." Momo stopped marching her way to the door, turning around slightly as Sera slipped away to the bathroom. “Okies..” Momo nodded obediently, patting the top of her pink head as she waited for Sera to be done. She leaned against the wall by the door, pure focus on her index fingers as they impatiently poked each other while the clock continued ticking and the sound echoed in her ears. She wasn’t sure if time was passing by slowly or if Sera was taking longer than she would anticipate getting dressed would take. Either way, the excitement of hitting the beach and learning something new took hold as Momo lifted her back off the wall to call out for her friend just to check things were alright. Who knows, maybe she needs help adjusting something? Momo thought up excuses to hurry her friend as she started making her way back through the cabin. “Seraaaa!” she exclaimed as she rounded a corner, her fingers barely clasping the edge of the wall as her head peeked out to look in both directions of the cabin’s interior just enough for her to get a glimpse of her friend changing inside the bathroom. “Meep..” Momo’s head stopped peeking out to hide again behind the wall as if nothing had happened. She didn’t expect Sera to leave the bathroom door open but then again they were both girls. It probably only bothered her because she knew Sera’s sexual orientation was bi plus she had witnessed her friend make out with another girl. Momo’s head started spinning remembering the scene and her own as she had to kiss another junior girl (Yumi) in the Spin the Bottle game as her back slid against the wall dizzy-like. Last night had been too big of a wild party for the innocent junior girl.

By the time Sera had finished, Momo was back at the front door trying to distract herself from the memories by concentrating all her mind power towards the rest of the day’s activities. Hum hum hum hum~ forget yesterday, what about today! Today is gonna be GREAT! Ganbatte! Momo fist pumped the air a few times energetically while continuing to reject the occurrences of last night a place in her head. "I'm ready now, let's go ride a few waves." Momo nodded as her fists returned to peaceful open palms by her sides as both of them walked out the door to leave the cabin, greeted by rays of warm sunlight. “Oooh..” Momo glanced up at the sky with a hearty grin. A beautiful day to learn how to surf."My hangover isn't as bad as I thought." Momo turned her head to smile back at Sera as they walked through the sand. Although the sand was naturally hindering smooth movement, Momo’s high spirits kept her marching along at the pace of Sera though her legs were much shorter than the other girl’s. It was only as they sighted Bishop that Momo turned to notice some strangers looking their way, particularly at Sera. Her friend always seemed to be attracting attention. Momo paused and watched Sera as she neared Bishop and began to talk. "Hey there, you look to be in top for even after last night, good to see." She wasn’t jealous but rather contemplating how lucky Sera was, her friend being able to make heads turn without batting an eyelash. Yet she picks Silas.. Momo thought worryingly before skipping over to join the two as Sera waved her over. "Ready to give us a few lessons teach?"

“Good morning Bishop, hope you weren’t waiting long?” Momo greeted before straightening out her swimsuit, finding it annoying to be wearing a two piece she wasn’t used to at all. Well, at least nobody she knew who was capable of making fun of her for it was around. Her floppy bunny ears birthmark was gleaming under the sun over her shoulder but for once she wasn’t hiding it since it had already been caught out by Silas.. and Kei her senior. She shook her head deciding to figure out the situation between Akira and Kei later. If anything , last night looked more like a verbal battle between Varthur and Akira for whatever reason that was. Or maybe it’s not two separate situations, but entwined somehow.. Momo shook her head again, thinking she was overthinking. Akira, Varthur and Kei were all seniors who could probably take care of themselves. Besides, Varthur was the last person on earth she’d worry about being enemies and all. For now, she had a lesson and new possible life skill to focus on. “I’m ready~” Momo sang with a confident goofy grin on her face, knowing she was the only one in the group who had never had a go at surfing before.

Bishop Trander

Bishop was coasting into shore, when he spotted the lovely dark skinned girl Sera. He naturally smiled his heart elated that she had showed up, and it appeared that Momo wasn't far behind either! "Hey there, you look to be in top for even after last night, good to see." He stood in the shallow water, and stepped in raking his fingers through his hair to get some of the water out and approached the girls carrying his board under his arm. “Good morning Bishop, hope you weren’t waiting long?” "Hey goodmorning! No I didn't wait long I think, and yeah I guess I'm lucky. I had enough wits to chug nearly a liter of water before I slept." He laughed softly, Sera getting his attention being her attractive self. It was a little hard trying to remember that she was a natural flirt and think of making any moves. Just something he had to get use to. "Ready to give us a few lessons teach?" Bishop smiled again and gave them both a wink giving a thumbs up with a free hand. "You bet!! You'll be up in the waves in no time. Let's start with the basics."

Bishop would undo the velcro strap on his ankle, and took a knee flipping the board around. "These here are fins that help you guide the board. By leaning one way, and pushing your back foot the opposite is how you turn. But we'll get to that later." Bishop flipped the board over again and placed it flat on the ground. [color]"I'm gonna teach you how to lay and stand on the board. Now, whenever you paddle out you lay flat on your stuck so go ahead and start."[/color] He would follow the same suit laying down on his imaginary board in front of her. "Alright, now paddle with your arms. You need to take deep strokes, don't worry about going too fast. People who've never surfed before have hurt their shoulders cause they're paddling incorrectly and too fast. So just remember to relax and have fun!" He laughed softly, and looked to Sera to see if she was following. Since she said that she surfed before, he didn't feel that he had to go over as much with her, but a refresher was helplful too. [color]=#0080FF"Alright!! So a wave is coming in behind you, you paddle paddle paddle paddle. Now you need to paddle faster, since you won't surf on the break if you're not going fast enough. Once the wave picks up. You use your arms to jump up!"[/color] He demonstrated pushing his arms quickly to the ground and sprang up. "You keep your legs bent, and arms out if you need balance. So let's try it a few times!" He would repeat the steps again with Momo guiding her through it the best he could. "Now, turning... You need to remember, that which ever way you lean. Is where you will go, so lean left... You go left. It's all in the hips, and back foot." He would pause in case she didn't understand, and further explain if need be.

When he felt confident she had all the steps, he would nod and smile. "You ready to surf?" He looked to both the girls placing his hands on his hips. He was fine with either one borrowing his board, though he was a bit concerned that it might break. But that was part of the risk you took surfing anyways, so now big deal. Looking around, he noticed that Devone was gone. He wondered where she had run off to, but he didn't let it bother him too much. She seemed the kind of girl to do whatever she wanted whenever. "I'll and stick with you the entire time Momo. We can start further in shore if you like when the waves get smaller." He was just as eager as she was to do this. It had been a while since he got to spend real quality time with people he thought of as friends. This was really nice, Bishop actually needed this.

Bishop Trander


"Lucky you are. Apparently I have a bit of luck on my side, my hangover isn't as bad as it should be." Bishop was glad to hear that Sera was doing alright with her hangover. He was curious about Momo too but looking to her, she seemed to be lost in thought so he guessed that was good then. While instructing Momo she seemed super enthused and happy to learn how to surf. He smiled, remembering being exactly like that when he got his first board from his dad so many years ago. He kept teaching, smiling when she fell over but couldn't help but admire her determination. He wasn't thinking less of her, but having that kind of fire got people far. That was a quality he admired in the pink haired girl (Momo). When he asked them if they were ready to surf Momo showed her enthusiasm once again to his delight. “Yeahh!” "I know I am, as long as Momo is ready to give it a shot I say let's do it." Bishop nodded, and rose up from his knee brushing some sand off of him.

The next thing she did was the definition of adorable. “Aye aye instructor Bishop.” He saluted her back playfully unable to contain that bright smile that accompanied his nature. "I can run back to the room real quick and grab some cash to get another board, one suited for Momo's size and we can just trade off. I saw a place renting them down the beach a bit yesterday, what do you think?" Bishop thought for a moment, he honestly didn't plan on surfing very much more having dedicated the time they had left on teaching Momo. "That is a good idea- Before he could finish his idea, Momo had taken off towards the shore carrying his board. Which was a little big compared to her, but bigger boards were better for beginners so it was fine. Bishop smiled brightly, and laughed. “It’sfineSera, Icanhandleitbutthanks forthethought!” He turned to Sera crossing his arms. "I think she's got it, and I didn't plan on surfing much anyways. You both can just use my board, it'll save on time anyways. Some of the others are heading back towards the bus early too. But I insist, just use my board. That way you both can get back and change sooner." Bishop's smile turned kind. He was really taking a hit on this one. He had minimal sleep, hadn't eaten since yesterday either and had barely scathed off a hangover. He knew he was probably going to pass out on the bus, it would make the trip short anyways. "In the mean time..." He placed a finger to his chin as if in deep thought. "I can teach you to body suurrf." He spoke a bit more on the suggestive side, just playing with Sera's nature giving the girl a wink. It was harmless flirting at it's best. When the junior stopped goofing around, he opened his eyes and turned to Momo. "Hey wait up!! You need to strap your ankle first!!" He sprinted towards the water, and gracefully dove in swimming over to Momo.

Sera

Momo was enthusiastic to say the least and it was just another part of the small girls charm. There were few people Sera had met in her life that were so excited to try new things, it was refreshing. She herself was that way as well, though to a lesser degree, not being quite as vocal or open about it as Momo but at the same time never giving up a chance to experience something she hadn't done before. Momo's enthusiasm drove her forward without waiting as she grabbed the board and took off towards the water in an explosive display. Sera had a theory that her small stature just couldn't hold in all the energy and it came out in her random spurts of enthusiasm and it was adorable. “It’sfineSera, Icanhandleitbutthanks forthethought!” The few words she managed to speak, if the string of syllables could even be considered as such, caused Sera to crack a smile, if Momo wanted to go out on the big board that was fine, besides it would probably be for the best anyways. Not that she minded spending the money, hell that was one of the few things she didn't have to worry about, but being late because she had to return it wouldn't be a good thing. "I think she's got it, and I didn't plan on surfing much anyways. You both can just use my board, it'll save on time anyways. Some of the others are heading back towards the bus early too. But I insist, just use my board. That way you both can get back and change sooner." It was nice of Bishop to let them use his board, she had never been into surfing as much as some of her acquaintances back in England, but they treasured their boards. "Well then thanks for the generosity, Momo has been wanting to do this since you first mentioned it and I would mind getting at least one good wave in before we depart." She didn't really plan to use the board much, perhaps just a single time to have a bit of fun, that way Momo could get a good bit of time on it.

She found herself watching Momo with a small smile, she was glad to see her friend enjoying it so much, it made getting out of bed earlier than she would have liked totally worth it. "In the mean time..." Sera turned her head to look at Bishop again, her lips curling up into a smirk as he tried his hand at flirting. "I can teach you to body suurrf." Not bad, didn't think you had it in ya. "You could probably teach me a few tricks on the board but body surfing... I would eat you alive." "Hey wait up!! You need to strap your ankle first!!" Sera's smirk grew a tad wider as Bishop ran off to the water to assist Momo, the female plopping her self down into the sand and watching Bishop as he made his way over to her pink-haired companion. He was certainly cute but that could be said for pretty much every guy and girl at the school to some degree. Of course Silas and Kei seemed to break that mold, Silas being more sexy than anything else and Kei having the mysterious and chiseled thing going for him. It was rather astonishing when she thought about it, usually their were an equal amount of average mixed in with the cute and other such distinguished types, not there though, they were all attractive and the personalities seemed to not only vary but be quite unique. It was one of the reasons she was enjoying the new environment so much, an environment she had originally planned to despise on the sheer principle of it being so far away from her home and friends. Life never works out the way you plan it to. Sera brought her legs up and wrapped her arms around them, sitting her chin on top of her knees as she stared out into the ocean, waiting for Momo to make her first attempt at riding a wave and hoping it went well, even if chances were slim that she would accomplish it in one go. Regardless it would be fun to see.

Bishop Trander


"Eeek!" Bishop laughed softly and swiftly swam over to Momo and pulled on the cord strap and began to tie it around her ankle. "There!! You're good to go." He would swim backwards slowly giving the girl (Momo) her space, and turned to look at Sera as well. He was curious to why she would just sit there on the beach idly and watch them. Wash she scared of the current, or the swells? No, he shook his head getting those thoughts out of his head. That was nonsense he was sure. "You just do the best, you can. I'll be in the waves with you so don't be scared." Letting Momo go and surf, he trusted her with his board, which was rather foolish really. It was the wrong board for a beginner, especially if it was their first time. Beginners always got a larger board, since it game them more room to move and manipulate the board with as well as increased buoyancy.

So Bishop just settled for body surfing keeping his eye on Momo however. He knew that they were running short on time, and after a while he just treaded water shouting advice to the girl as she went. He smiled seeing her try again and again until she got it right and was actually surfing. He finally came back onto sure, still watching his pink haired friend have the time of her life out on the waves. He would wait patiently for her to return, not in the least worried that she would break his board.

Bishop Trander


Bishop watched Momo excitedly as he body surfed. He watched her first couple attempts at surfing fail, but he wasn't that good either when he first started. But by the fourth time he smiled and cheered her on as he body surfed. Bishop eventually just settled to going back on shore next to Sera and crossed his arms with a smile. "She's a natural!!" He glanced to his new dark skinned friend (Sera) with a gentle laugh. However, his eye brows scrunched when Mr. Drone surfed into the picture almost knocking Momo off of her board. He sweat dropped watching them both surf, and slowly approached Momo when she got back to sure. He was about to speak when their P.E. teacher swooped in once again and snagged his board away. He stood there flabbergasted. “It’s time to go to school kids, hop to it!” Bishop raised a hand to object but he was ignored. “Come on! The lovely Ms. Roselle is waiting!!” <I can't believe that just happened....> “Sorry—I’ll get your board back!” Bishop looked to Momo and shut his eyes gently waving his hand side to side. He still smiled kindly to the girl. "Oh... No, don't worry about it. At least our teacher has it, and not some random stranger." Despite his words however, the pink haired junior (Momo) still chased after the house of a mane late. With a sigh Bishop, scratched the back of his head and turned to Sera.

"Catch ya on the bus I guess? We shouldn't be late." He nodded after the girl (Sera) acknowledged him, and he dashed off to his cabin. He swiftly stripped down, and took a rinse off and got out in a hurry to dry off and get dressed. He looked out the window to see a few people walking back to the bus, but it appeared that most everybody was already gone which prompted him to hurry and finish packing. Finally ready he swung the door open and took one last look around the cabin to make sure he didn't forget anything then went on his way to the bus. As he went, he waved and said hello to people he saw at the party last night. Most were on the swim team, and had talked to a little bit already. When he got to the bus, he found Momo trapped underneath his board as Mr. Drone was crying like a blubbering baby on the ground. He approached the smaller girl (Momo) and lifted the board up offering her a hand. "You ok down there? And thank you for getting my board back!!" He truly meant that statement, since it cost his parents a bit of money to get it. "You aren't going the entire trip in a swim suit are you?" He looked around to see if there was a clock anywhere for him to look at. Momo didn't seem ready to leave yet, and it appeared that students were about to board the bus. "I'll take care of this and you can go ahead and change. You don't seem like the type to walk around wearing a bikini." He smiled that kind smile of his again and headed to the bus to place his board in the bottom storage location. <I guess I can wait for somebody.... Nah, I'm actually tired. I'm gonna go sit down. Maybe save a seat for somebody.> With that, the blonde stepped onto the bus and got a window seat again just about in the middle. He sighed and plugged one earphone in using his backpack as a pillow. He looked out the window seeing who was boarding.

Sera

Sera found herself in one of those very rare kind of moments, the moment where everything seems to feel almost surreal and relaxing. It was nice and she didn't feel like moving from her spot in fear of that sensation disappearing, instead sitting on the beach and just watching Momo and Bishop from afar. Normally she wouldn't be so content to just sit but this was an exception she would be taking advantage of. Watching Momo was entertaining enough anyways, the energy the small girl had always impressing her and bringing a small smile. Of course as much as she was enjoying it happen a good thing couldn't last and as she was sitting there a couple of guys came to interrupt her, staring almost to the point of leering. She turned with a glare that could freeze a man in his tracks, she didn't mind people looking at her but they had interrupted her moment of extreme comfort. They didn't stick around long, the men seeming to lose her nerve when she didn't react like they expected. The damage had been done though and she frustratedly sighed. "Oh well..." She muttered before stretching her legs out in front of her and leaning back on her hands, still looking out at the water as Momo really began to get the hang of it. It wasn't long after that before Bishop made his way to shore and joined her, sitting next to her on the warm sand and commenting on Momo's natural ability. She nodded with a small laugh, "Yea, she may not look like it at first glance but I have noticed some natural athletic ability. She and Kei are a good Junior Senior pairing." It was interesting that Momo, who didn't appear to be but was quite skilled at physical activity, and Kei who was obviously an athletic guy had been paired up. She was going to say something else, strike up a conversation with Bishop, but the unexpectedness of Mr. Drone caused her to sit up and watch in confusion. It was the kind of thing that didn't make sense even after it happened and she could only watch as Momo ran off after the surfboard thief. "Yeah see you on the bus..." She said to Bishop, rising from the sand as she did.

Mr. Drone's odd act was as good an omen as any to signal the end of the beach excursion and Sera took it to heart, turning and heading back towards the cabin. She figured Momo was probably still trying to get the board back, laughing a bit as she thought about the girl near other people in the two piece, Momo making her apprehension to reveal her midriff to others. It was a shame she wouldn't be able to see it but the thought alone was entertaining. Sera found herself at the cabin before long and went to her and Momo's room, walking inside and went to the bathroom, going into the bathroom and stepping into the shower quickly, washing off the sand before stepping out and going back to the center of the room. She looked around for a second, there wasn't much to pack up, she just had to change and make sure she didn't leave anything behind. Sera would get Momo's stuff together as well since she was sure the girl would be in a rush when she finally made it to the room. So she got to work, going over to her bag and grabbing a new outfit, some undergarments to replace the bikini and some jeans and a t-shirt. It wasn't anything special, just a plain black t-shirt, and then she slipped on her shoes, finding it strangely uncomfortable to put on shoes again after their absence but doing so anyways. After she was dressed it took nearly no time to get her things packed up and then she moved over to do Momo's. She knew it was a tad invasive but she went into Momo's bag and picked out an outfit before putting it on the bed with a smile, she had always enjoyed picking out clothes for her sister and it felt nice to do it, to the point that she didn't realize she had done it until they were laying out. She took a deep breath and shook her head, hoping Momo didn't mind before she finished picking up Momo's things and putting them either in the bag or, with the things she would carry on her person, putting it next to the clothing. With all that done she went over and plopped down on her bed, leaning back against the pillows and just waited, not in a rush to get to the bus even if it was time to leave and wanting to wait for Momo, mainly so she could go with her to the bus and share a seat, already being a bit attached to her new friend.

Momo


Momo didn't realise how heavy the surfboard was all along until she found herself crushed underneath its weight with no competitive drive. "Pooey.." she mumbled for the second time in the day as her elbows were propped in an attempt to get up. To her surprise, the board suddenly felt a lot lighter. "You ok down there? And thank you for getting my board back!!" Momo turned her head, smiling at the familiar face and accepting Bishop's extended hand. It was again, another small gesture but she was genuinely very happy. There was a time when even small things like this seemed near impossible, but now Momo had friends and new experiences to make with them, people whom she belonged with and accepted her as she was with glasses or without. Momo patted the top of her pink head with nervous laughter after having been found in such an awkward clumsy-looking mess. "Thanks too for helping me up!" she responded cheerfully. "You aren't going the entire trip in a swim suit are you?" Momo's cheerful expression collapsed as her eyes widened after almost having forgotten. Etto..that's right! "No.. of course not.." Momo muttered sheepishly as her knees knocked together uneasily at the reminder. "I'll take care of this and you can go ahead and change. You don't seem like the type to walk around wearing a bikini." "Ehehe...thanks!" she replied, laughing nervously again as her cheeks turned a pale shade of pink before dashing away from the crowd of students towards the cabins.

As she was running, she started to wonder where her friend Sera was since the girl wasn't with Bishop. Momo had a swooping glance towards the shore as she ran past it but Sera was nowhere to be found. I hope I'm quick enough, I don't want to be left behind! she started to panic just as she reached the cabin and slammed the door behind her in a rush. At first, she didn't know what she was supposed to be doing. She had to do so many things; take a shower, get changed, pack her bags, carry her bags to the bus, find Sera-- Oh there's Sera! To Momo's relief, she entered the bedroom and saw her friend changed and ready to go, laying on her bed relaxedly. "You're...so....cool." Momo said, looking around the bedroom with pauses in between at each change to the room she noticed. For one thing, everything was packed including her own belongings and her clothes were all set out and ready for after taking her shower. It was so organised and she hated to say it, but she didn't expect that from Sera who always seemed to be such a laid back person. "Thankyou Sera!!" Momo suddenly exclaimed, arms wide open about to tackle hug her friend with joy, her energy not completely lost after the excitement of surfing. She ended up stopping midway though, "Oh wait.. we're going to be late, oh no!" Momo realised, snapping back into reality and grabbing a towel and the change of clothes to take her shower.

Her shower was literally a quick rinse and dry as she wrapped the towel around her head to stop her hair from dripping onto the tiles and hopped into the clean set of clothes Sera had prepared for her without a second thought. Momo knew Sera had good fashion sense, the girl strikingly resembling a foreign model in her own way that there was no reason to doubt as she walked out of the bathroom, towel still wrapped around her head as she searched for her brush. "Thanks for waiting for me, sorry for waiting for me--!" Momo's words easily got muddled up as she removed the towel, hurriedly brushed her hair and started to drag her bag out the door as it came time for her and Sera to leave. Momo hated being not organised, and most of all late but hopefully the bus hadn't left without them yet. She was sure that some classmates like Bishop or maybe even her senior Kei or Sera's senior Silas would notice if her and Sera didn't make it in time, that brought a bit of comfort in the hurry. When they reached the bus, Momo let out an exaggerated huff of relief as she dropped her bags in the compartment. "We made it, I'm glad.." Momo continued talking to Sera only more casually and relaxed since there was nothing left to worry about any more. The line up onto the bus was still ongoing, it was almost hard to believe the beach trip was coming to an end. It left mixed feelings for Momo, she had a lot of fun with her new friends but she also missed her mother at home dearly.

Kei Takeda

Kei wasn't in a bad mood but neither was he in a good mood, he was just normal. So when everyone started to gather he just continued to sit in his place, paying a little more attention as those he knew assembled. He didn't make a move quite yet though, not having the urge to rise to his feet and board the bus quite yet, and instead he took to people watching, a favorite individual pastime of his. Everyone seemed to have their own things going on but nobody seemed to be in a particularly happy mood, not that he noticed anyways. Perhaps it was due to the previous night, a lot of things had happened and more than one person had made a fool of themselves. Of course there was also the possibility that some of them just didn't want to leave the beach, not exactly how Kei felt but he could understand the idea of staying at the warm comfortable beach as opposed to going back to the normal class schedule. That being said he was one of the ones who did want to go home, to do his own cooking and sleep in his own bed. He began to worry if anything had happened in his absence, suddenly the reality that they had been gone from the world for a day hit him. Sure the likelihood of something bad happening in one night wasn't very high but he always had an excess of worry for his mother. Kei had made sure there was food in the fridge and everything was tidy before he left and after a few moments he convinced himself that everything would be fine and that he was simply being ridiculous. He took a deep breath as his mind landed on the other reason he needed to get back, his next appointment with the doctor was quite soon and he was nervous and eager at the same time, wanting to get it over with so he would know or not. That being the case he finally took a deep breath and stood up, the urge to head towards the bus finally hitting him.

As he grabbed his stuff and walked over to the bus he spotted Momo and Sera arriving, and he shot them a quick wave and small smile before making his way through the crowd and onto the bus, keeping his stuff with him this time around. He had decided not to check his bag in with the others on the return trip, to keep it under his feet, the bag not being that big and the seat being spacious enough to do so without having to risk making someone else uncomfortable. He made his way down the aisle and towards about the middle of the bus, taking a seat on the right side and scooting over to the window. He didn't really expect anybody to sit with him on the return, not after the little outburst on the way to the beach but that was fine, he was use to such things. Of course it wasn't the same as it use to be, he had a couple of people he was getting to know, Momo and Sera who would both probably sit together, Silas who would most likely sit with Akira, or so he figured after all that had happened, and Devone, an odd choice in acquaintance for him but one nonetheless, though her sitting next to him would be quite strange. He just shrugged, deciding to leave that to chance and instead pulled out his headphones, plugging them up to his phone and sticking them in his ears. If he was going to just sit he needed something to do, and listening to music felt like a good thing to quell the boredom. So he put on one of his playlists and leaned his head back, his eyes still staring towards the front of the bus wondering who would come on next but not really paying too much attention to anything else.

Sera

"You're...so....cool." Sera smiled gently when Momo came in and it seemed the girl had been in a rush as Sera had expected. "Why thank you, I do my best." Luckily she had taken care of getting their things together, though part of her wondered if it an even more panicked Momo would have been cuter. She wouldn't have purposefully left her side a mess but it was a thought that crossed her mind. "Oh wait.. we're going to be late, oh no!" She got a glance of it as the girl began focusing on their tardiness so it was enough, though she made sure to reassure her, "Don't worry we won't be late, besides they can wait even if we are." Sera did however give a small sulk as their hug was ended before it began, already having braced herself for the energetic response, but it quickly changed back to a smile. Momo headed to the shower and so Sera got back to her feet, grabbing her own and sitting it near the entrance, waiting for her friend to finish up. She wasn't worried about being late, she never really care about it, in fact the only reason she got places on time was because she didn't want to miss anything. In this instance it was more or less because she was with her friend, nothing could be boring or bad when around little Momo. "Thanks for waiting for me, sorry for waiting for me--!" Sera just laughed as Momo hurried to complete everything, her words a jumble and cute as could be. "Don't worry about it, I wanted to wait." She walked to the bathroom door frame and leaned against it, watching Momo do the small chores she felt necessary before leaving, despite the fact that they would be heading back to their own homes quite soon. Not that she could say anything, she didn't do too much but she had made sure she looked good.

She followed the girl as she finished up and headed out though, moving behind her casually, not feeling the rush her friend did, though she kept up anyways. She put her bags away the same as Momo and nodded, it seemed like they were perfectly on time, if not earlier than some. "We made it, I'm glad.." They were in a line of sorts waiting to get on the bus but Sera wasn't really the line type and as she saw Kei pass by, people giving him room to get on, whether due to seemingly untrue reputation or simply the size and respect he seemed to naturally demand she wasn't sure. It did give her an idea though and she turned to Momo with a grin. "Come with me, let's make sure we get some good seats." She grabbed the girls hand and pulled her along, not too forcefully but she made sure she came with, going around towards the front of the line and winking at one of the boys at the front to cut in front and go ahead on. She let go of Momo once they were on the bus and turned with a small laugh, "Now we have free reign of where to sit, let's go get some good seats." She said before doing a small graceful spin back around and began walking down the center of the bus, trying to decide where to sit. Usually she wouldn't much care and just sat anywhere, but seeing that Kei and Bishop were quite close to each other in the middle she made a decision and went that way, claiming a set of seats between the two guys, people she knew and wanted to get to know more. "Howdy." She said with a smile, flicking the back of Kei's head since he was wearing headphones and then nodding to Bishop. She was still standing in the middle though, giving Momo choice of seat, not having an affection for window or aisle seating.

"It seems troublesome days are coming my way."

"Keiko?"

An echoing question filled his thoughts. Once the bag was lifted from his hand, Aeon wanted to leave her (Keiko) alone. He has no further desire to initiate any meaningless conversations between the two of them. However, his entire plan changed within seconds as a familiar name floated out of the girl's (Keiko) mouth. If he had heard correctly and he was certain that he does not have faulty ears, she called herself by the name Keiko in third person. He highly doubted that it was just an expression to make people think she (Keiko) is adorable or something. In any case, he wondered if this was some kind of humorous trick which no one was laughing including him. It would have been wonderful if the Junior was nowhere in sight for the rest of his school term so, the Principal could no longer pester him about his participation in school activities and programs. He just needed to finish one year and he is out of the Airdalen High. Thinking that way, somehow makes things more worse for him. He had wanted a peaceful and annoyance-free environment for his last year. Yet, he was not that lucky in that way. The idea of being cursed was becoming such a welcoming thought to his predicaments.

As a result, Aeon remained unmoving in his position. He was rather torn from the want to ignore her and to concede with his responsibility as a Senior partner. Observing the stuttering girl before him, she was much like a corpse being manipulated by the threads of consequences around her. A sense of eerie familiarity plagued just for a very brief moment. The apology that seemed to be directed at his state of seeing this as a nuisance served her well. He had deduced from that she was not some kind of a bimbo and had somewhat kind of insight. Perhaps, she would not be much of an annoyance as he had originally thought. In any case, he did not want another baffling discussion with the Principal. He could already imagine what he will be put through if the Principal ever gets wind of this event. So, there was only one path for him to take in this matter. Without further ado, he went and confirmed his suspicions.

"Misao Keiko. If that is your name, I will be your Senior partner. The name is Belrose Aeon."

With that said, Aeon walked passed her (Keiko) and did not even wait for a proper response. There was not even a trace of friendliness in his voice as it was placid and curt. He had already given her (Keiko) the information that she would ever need. It would be good to show the girl (Keiko) that he was not the kind to be bothered with trivial things. This could apply to anything related to those bonding activities. He has no desire to forge a bond with a person that he would probably never see again once he graduates. Furthermore, he gauged her (Keiko) as someone who could obviously see that and would mostly leave him alone unless, the Principal decides to do something completely bizarre for him to describe. Sometimes, he wonder if that person just liked making his life harder every chance that could be presented. In any case, he headed towards the bus entrance bypassing the formed line. Some of the students wanted to complain but upon recognizing him, their voice seemingly vanished. There were also some blushes directed by the female population and an added rumor of being surprised to see him here. All in all, no one bothered complaining as they allowed his actions. Reaching the entrance to the bus, he took a moment to look over his shoulder towards her (Keiko).

"Don't just stand there."

After saying that, Aeon entered the bus and could see some of the students already sitting and passing time with their own affairs. There was also a girl (Sera) standing in the middle of the bus probably allowing the pink-haired girl (Momo) to take a seat first. Ignoring them all together, he took the nearby seat which was on the right side of the bus. He took one of the 3rd row seats and situated himself at the window. He placed his duffel bag on the floor before him as it was not that bulky to begin with. There was not much of clothes he took with him to this trip since it was just for a day. When he was already comfortable, he took out his Ipod and inserted his earphones to drown out the unnecessary noises. He did not want the repeat where the ceaseless shouting annoyed him. Selecting a playlist, the music began playing through his ears. It was then he placed his elbow at the armrest of his seat and made the back of his left hand as a cushion of his cheek. His form had a rather slack presentation but with the mixture of somewhat regal elegance even without the intention to do so.

Aeon looked much like painting or sculpture worthy at Louvre. At this point, he was not even trying to do so as his eyes were closed and those long eyelashes feathery touched his skin. As for the empty seat beside him, Aeon was rather certain no one would take it. No one had ever done so to begin with. He did not care for their reasons for it was favorable for him. However if someone had the guts to do so, he would not mind as well. Everything will be fine in his world as long as he was not bothered personally. So for now, he casually listened to his music as he waited for the bus to leave or perhaps some poor soul to dare interrupt his personal space.

Jonathan Fenix


Climbing into the bus, Jonathan scanned for any available seats that wasn't shared as of yet. His eyes fell across the faces of each unfamiliar student, each one being a potential rose, or a possible thorn, for him during his next year or so. There were so few unoccupied seats, but he had to get past a pair of girls, one dark-skinned (Sera) and the other with obnoxiously pink hair (Momo), and God, was that hair pink. To him, the same color as Pepto Bismol.

He was already annoyed that he had to come on this forsaken trip, and the fact that these two were holding up the line as if they were at the mall or something was making it even more annoying. Sure, this might have been a bad first impression, but he just didn't fit in all that easily.

Then, the students became smart, finally learning to move around the two roadblocks. He was still too far in the front of the bus to get to the vacant bench he was aiming for, past the roadblocks, but it had seemed as if another student, some blond-haired kid (Silas), had set their eyes on it and reached it before him.

Well, shit, Jonathan said to himself, feeling awkward about having to introduce himself. He sure as hell didn't want to give off a bad impression, which could possibly backfire and make his new life here in Japan a possible hell. Not feeling like walking past the two girls that are still taking their wonderful time, he looked for a nearby, empty seat, with his eyes landing upon one next to some blue-haired guy (Aeon) with headphones to his right.

Well, here goes... Jonathan assured to himself, before claiming the seat besides the "rock" of blue hair.

"I hope you don't mind me sitting here, new blue-haired dude." He called out as he planted his bag, nearly devoid of its contents sans the personal belongings, onto the floor next to the bench and taking the seat for himself.

Kei

Kei was glad to see Momo and Sera arrive on the bus, he wasn't sure if anyone would be late but Sera seemed like one of the more likely candidates to not really care, though he knew Momo's wild side could very well lead to the same thing. They had both made it so it wasn't important and he was happy to just sit there and leave it be. Sera however, apparently being in a good mood as usual, made sure he turned around by flicking the back of his head. The male turned his head and removed one of his earphones, smirking a bit, "Hey." He nodded in her and Momo's direction before turning back around, though this time he decided to leave the earphone out in case more conversation was directed at him, and to avoid being flicked again. That being said it wasn't like he didn't want to talk anyways, especially with those two sitting behind him, it would certainly be interesting. The addition of someone beside him was unexpected, he hadn't figured anybody would take the aisle seat next to him but even more unexpected was the person. The girl (Keiko) was not one he had seen before and he couldn't really figure out why she would choose to sit by him, his appearance and reputation not exactly friendly. He wasn't displeased about someone joining him though and tried to make himself appear a tad more friendly, glad he had taken one of his earphones out, and making sure not to stare too long. Of course when she was hit by the chair in front of her his usual self took over and he leaned forward, his hand tapping the person in front of them who turned only to get a rather nervous look on their face when they saw Kei. "You hit the person behind you, just a heads up." He wasn't trying to be intimidating but at first glance, and to the student who knew nothing but his reputation around school, he was. The male simply turned to the girl (Keiko) and swallowed, "Um... I'm sorry." He seemed sincere enough and with a polite little head bow he turned himself back around, leaning his chair back up a little to give her more room.

Kei, being the idiot he was, forgot to introduce himself. He was slightly overjoyed, which wasn't at all noticeable on his face, that he could say something so easily to another person, and forgot completely about common courtesy. It didn't help when Akira walked on the bus, his eyes followed her slowly as she walked past him and down the aisle in the direction Silas was sitting. He didn't follow her the entire way, turning back and facing the front with a barely audible sigh. As much as she didn't want to cause her trouble it was killing him a bit how much she seemed to hate him. He just had to deal with the repercussions of his actions and let it be, if he were lucky the situation would eventually resolve itself, or at least calm down enough for him to approach and make a suitable apology. He refused to sink down into some ridiculous fit of depression about something he couldn't do a damn thing about at the current time and instead just switched to a different playlist on his phone, something a little more upbeat. It was then that he realized the girl sitting next to him was still a stranger, despite his intervention when she was hit with the seat. So quickly he turned to look at her. "Sorry, I realized I forgot to introduce myself. The name is Kei." He held out his hand politely, being a bit formal but not knowing how else to go about it. Sure he could try to play it cool like Sera or Silas would but he couldn't do that, and he didn't have the cute and bubbly personality like Momo, he was just Kei and that left him with few options aside from the direct approach.

Momo


Momo managed to quickly wave back in Kei’s direction as he passed by them to get on the bus and it was then that she noticed how many students there were. The bus was crowded and some were even shoving to get through the door first that made her release a suppressed sigh. Maybe we should have gotten here earlier.. but it was worth catching that first wave! She fist pumped in front of her chest enthusiastically though she kept her thoughts to herself. The beach excursion was drawing a close but it had been fun and enjoyable. She was at the very least an inch closer to getting to know her friends and if not, more than that which made everything all the more worthwhile as an experience as a whole. "Come with me, let's make sure we get some good seats." Sera was enthusiastic as well, grinning almost with a mischievous spark as she grabbed Momo’s hand and directed her through the crowd.

Momo stayed quiet, somewhat pondering Sera’s random uplifting spirits as they continued to move through and past the body of students. Uh but Se— Momo thought rather than said as they reached the very front of the line, only to watch as Sera lightly flirted with one of the boys with a passing wink as he moved aside allowing the two girls to go ahead. Following after Sera, she stepped in and poked her bottom lip in thought as her hand was released as Sera let out a small laugh. Momo wasn’t sure if she was overthinking things, but she hadn’t recalled a time she had seen Sera so energetic and happy. To her, it was a big deal as she always saw Sera was laidback, cool, calm and collected and that she still was, but there was still a shift towards something with much more vigour and energy. "Now we have free reign of where to sit, let's go get some good seats." Sera said with a hint of girly as she spun around to walk down the aisle. Happy for her friend, Momo smiled and removed her finger from her lips to entwine her fingers behind her back in a swinging back and forth motion as she walked on behind.

Sera paused, picking out vacant seats which were conveniently positioned between where Bishop was sitting at and Kei. "Howdy." Sera greeted, flicking the back of Kei’s head as Momo decided to toss a small smile and wave in Bishop’s aka her Surf Instructor’s direction. As she glanced at the vacant seat next to Bishop though, she wandered off in her own trail of thought without meaning to. Miami, a girl of whom Bishop seemed to be growing fond of and maybe to an extent herself considering the girl stood up for her.. was still missing. She had just vanished from the excursion like she was never there. It made Momo feel sad as first it was Maya and then now, Miami. She had been standing there frowning for so long, she didn’t realise Sera was waiting for her to be seated and in turn, she was holding the line up inconveniently for everyone. “Gomen, gomen ne!” She quickly apologised after snapping out of her thoughts and seated herself by the window before drifting into thought again, her elbow leaning against the narrow windowsill. And I promised Kei in that text I would do my best to clear things out between him and Akira.. She was troubled and unable to cover up her emotions as her lips started to form a natural sulking pout. "Hey." Kei's voice came from in front of them as she turned her head and replied politely back, "Hello" with a brief closed eyes smile before he turned back right around. I'll try my best, ganbatte.

Sera

Sera was in one of those moods and while the cause wasn't clear, as it could have been anything from them soon returning home to one of Momo's cute little bubbly outbursts, it had her a little more excited than usual. In fact it could have just been some of Momo's run off, the amount of energy the girl had would no doubt be impossible to keep contained in her small frame. She slid in her seat, after Momo took the one by the window, and got comfortable. She hadn't really cared about people going around her, it wasn't that difficult to slip around two women unless her or Momo one was fat and they didn't realize it. People had seemed to be waiting though and while she would have been more than happy to continue standing for some time, conversing with those harder to see from a seated position, she didn't want to be too much of a bother to those without enough brainpower to simply go around an obstacle. Besides, while she would enjoy some across the bus conversation there wasn't much to talk about, at least nothing she cared to say, and with Silas and Akira close she didn't want to cause any drama, more of that was certainly unneeded even if it was inevitable. She wasn't about to be bored out of her mind the entire way, sure she could listen to music but that wouldn't be fun and definitely not for the duration. She thought for a moment that Kei greeting them back would start something up but Momo was simply polite and gave a simple greeting back without even trying to say anything more, boring. One redeeming factor was the new girl (Keiko) who had sat down next to Kei, and Bishop behind them, though as Devone took her seat next to him that avenue seemed risky. Sure speaking to Bishop would be fun but even looking at Devone seemed like it could bring some consequences with it.

After a moment of deliberation Sera decided to risk the conflict and turn herself around, still feeling a bit more energetic than usual, even if she was calmed down a bit now that they were on the bus. It seemed like a good idea seeing as Kei had started to speak with his random seat mate (Keiko). So she turned in her seat, her legs into the cushion as she hugged the back, keeping herself steady as she looked over at Bishop and Devone. It was in that first moment she though she noticed something in Devone's eyes she never would have expected, but in the time of a blink it was gone and she couldn't be sure if her eyes were playing tricks, due to some hangover and slight sleep deprivation, or if it had been real. Regardless she didn't want to start anything at the very beginning of their journey by being blunt about it and simply turned her head away from Devone and over to Bishop, "It was too bad you didn't get a chance to give me some tips, I am sure I could have used some." Sera gave a small smile as she took a deep breath, "I guess it's my fault for missing it the day before, just didn't have enough time." It really was a shame, if she had the chance again she would have to make sure she didn't miss it. Perhaps another field trip or just a day trip somewhere. They weren't the best of friends but she liked to think she would get along with Bishop in the coming days and going out to surf somewhere on the weekend or something could be a lot of fun, especially since Momo seemed to like it. Sera sighed and looked up a bit, muttering "Missed opportunities suck..." In English, falling back on it for a second, the language being more comfortable to her than Japanese even if she was fluent in both. She looked over to Momo and tapped her on the shoulder, "What do you think, should we try to pick a day sometime and go for a day trip to a beach or something, skip the partying, continue your lessons and get straight in the ocean?" She turned to Bishop after she asked Momo to pose him the same question, not really caring if Devone listened, figuring she probably didn't care about them or their conversation anyways, at least if her personality remained consistent.

Bishop Trander


Bishop was in his own little world, as he sat slumped against the window leaning on his bag. His eyelids did the rest of the work for him, and slowly closed as the warm sunlight lulled him into a gentle cat nap. He was peaceful there, the soft music of Coldplay coming through his earbud. He didn't notice Sera and Momo seating in front of him, or anyone else around him for that fact. In his usual fashion, he was just off doing his own thing by himself. People didn't normally bother him, unless they were just jerks. So in turn, he didn't really bother with anybody else not wanting to cause trouble. Or in this case, he wasn't entirely fluent in Japanese. His words were accented, and he got a few mixed up or in the wrong order. But he wasn't terrible or anything. <I'll get better in time....> Bishop sighed, and snuggled closer to his bag feeling the weight shift next to him. Did someone sit next to him? Probably somebody he didn't know, but to avoid being rude he slowly rose up and opened his eyes. He had a general look of surprise on his face when he saw that it was Devone taking a seat next to him.

<Well.... This is unexpected.> He rubbed his right eye in a sleepy manner, looking to the girl politely. "Uh... Hey Devone. Do you need more room to sit? I could scoot over some if you'd like." For once, he had no accent when he spoke. But that was a detail that he wasn't experienced enough to actually hear yet. He turned down his iPod so that he could hear what the black haired girl (Devone) would say, if she were to trade pleasantries. Sitting there, he admired how lovely she looked. Devone was a very attractive woman, already seeming to have developed at her age. But it wasn't that much of a surprise seeing as she was a senior. His gentle blue eyes weren't consumed with lust however, like the average 16 year old male's would be. She was just lovely, could probably make a man do anything for a simple kiss on the cheek. He would look her in the eyes, waving a lock of shimmering blonde hair from his eyes. His demeanor was relaxed, a little odd seeing as when he found a girl attractive he was a nervous tense wreck. But it was probably the sleep deprivation that caused this sort of reaction towards him.

"It was too bad you didn't get a chance to give me some tips, I am sure I could have used some." "Hmm? Oh! Hello Sera. I'm sorry but I didn't see you sitting there, you caught me just before I fell asleep." He chuckled softly, with a genuine smile poking fun at his own foolishness no matter how insignificant it was. "Yeah, but it's alright. Everyone was having so much fun during the trip. It's understandable that time got away from us." He looked back to Devone once again, he unbashfully made eye contact with the girl and didn't even attempt to lower his eyes. "Did you have fun Devone?" He wanted to involve the girl in on their conversation. "It was too bad you didn't get a chance to give me some tips, I am sure I could have used some. I guess it's my fault for missing it the day before, just didn't have enough time."" "Not even, you shouldn't worry about that. No harm was done, honest." Bishop nodded reassuringly to Sera, that optimistic smile across his lips when deep down he knew it somewhat was. He was a bit hurt when he got stood up, but no evidence of such feelings was let out for anyone else to see. He was too worried about other people to think about himself lots of times. It took it's tolls quite a lot, but he had no qualms with bearing the burden that his choices made.

Taking a good look around, it seemed that everyone was getting seated and starting to talk with one another. He was happy to have Sera near him, even Devone. She was a lovely sight, and he hoped to actually start getting back in touch with the girl again. He cast her (Devone) a glance before, scanning the bus spotting Momo seating next to Sera. "What do you think, should we try to pick a day sometime and go for a day trip to a beach or something, skip the partying, continue your lessons and get straight in the ocean?" He looked for the pink haired girl's (Momo) reaction, and brightened up even though he still sleepy after Sera looked at him for his opinion too. "Well.... I'm sure that we can get the beach again. We do live in Japan after all!" Bishop always enjoyed surfing, and doing it with friends was even better. "Have you ever surfed Devone?" He looked back to his old pen pal (Devone) with a genuine curiosity. He was already quite trusting of the girl, since they had history from when they were younger. How would that effect their relationship now?

Sera

"Hmm? Oh! Hello Sera. I'm sorry but I didn't see you sitting there, you caught me just before I fell asleep." Bishop was near sleep when she spoke which made her feel slightly bad but it was done and he was speaking back so she didn't find any harm in continuing their conversation, especially since he seemed to be talking to Devone anyways. "Yeah, but it's alright. Everyone was having so much fun during the trip. It's understandable that time got away from us." In fact he seemed set on speaking with Devone and it struck Sera as slightly odd as she didn't seem the type to talk back, and even if she did it wouldn't be anything pleasant she was sure. "Did you have fun Devone?" It didn't stop Bishop though so she just ignored it, continuing to talk and letting him do what he wanted with Devone. "Not even, you shouldn't worry about that. No harm was done, honest." "Whatever you say, regardless I wish it hadn't been missed, I know it would have been fun. Will just have to make some effort to get to it the next time we get a chance, make sure not to miss a thing." "Well.... I'm sure that we can get the beach again. We do live in Japan after all!" Sera nodded, it was true enough, going surfing in Japan would be nearly as easy as doing so in England, though she had a feeling it would never be as good. They could get lucky or find a good spot though. She laughed gently to herself as she spun back around, she found herself really wanting a bit of time on the waves after watching Momo out there, do something she hadn't done in awhile, even if she wasn't as good as she use to be, or even nearly as good as Bishop. She was definitely going to make plans. "Have you ever surfed Devone?" Bishop seemed more interested in Devone at the moment though, well perhaps not more but interested and that was enough to Sera to step back, not wanting to pester the girl and start more drama. She just hoped Bishop didn't try too hard to get someone who didn't seem to care into the conversation.

For a moment Sera just enjoyed the rather comfortable bus seating, the legroom not being the best but the seating itself was nice and soft. So she sat there for a moment, her body relaxing as she realized just how tired she was after the lack of sleep from the night before and the partial symptoms of a hangover she was still cursed with. She didn't like sleeping in front of other people though. Momo wouldn't be so bad but she generally didn't like to sleep in crowded locations, not for any reason in particular, just because. So she fought the urge to shut her eyes and drift off, looking forward to see what Kei was doing. She hadn't heard a thing before but he was talking to the new girl beside him or so it seemed, and while they seemed to be having somewhat of an interesting conversation, in an odd way, she didn't join in, instead just sitting there, suddenly being assaulted by the urge to sleep. It was one of those things that only bothered you once you noticed it, like a flickering light or a hangnail, harmless up to the moment of realization. She turned to Momo after a second, looking at the girl with a small smile, pushing away thoughts of tiredness from the front of her mind. "So, did you have fun?" She didn't ask about anything in specific, not really wanting to bring up the kissing with Momo, as she knew it would embarrass the girl and Sera didn't want to do that. She hoped Momo had fun though, she had tried to make it enjoyable for her new friend, especially the party since it seemed out of the pink haired cuties wheelhouse. At the same time Sera wondered when everyone would make it to the bus and they would head back, as it seemed they were running over the appointed time now, though she didn't bother to check and just assumed.
