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

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

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

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

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

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

BISHOP TRANDER

Image


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

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

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

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

The small girl had been humming the first theme song to Rangers Unite! to herself quietly. She looked pretty content with herself as she absentmindedly swung her legs back and forth. Although she knew it made her look even smaller, Mai enjoyed doing it since it gave her something to do. Mai was even swaying to the song as it played in her head but only if you paying close attention would you notice her movement. Every now and then Mai would look up to see if anyone else had arrived and by the looks of it someone did. A young man, or rather a pretty boy, had arrived. He was smaller than most of the men she has seen but he was certainly taller than she was. The fact that he wasn't that much taller than her made him seem less intimidating. I wish I was his height. Mai pouted inwardly hating the fact that she didn’t inherit her parents genes but rather her Oba-san, may she rest in peace. Had Mai watched the boy a little longer she would have seen him approaching her and could have prepared for a confrontation however those green orbs caught sight of a ladybug that was crawling on the edge of the bench to her right.

Mind if I sit with you? I'm new and fairly lost.." Mai jumped a bit as she wasn’t expecting to be spoken to. Instead of looking up right away, Mai hunched her shoulders slightly in hopes that this boy was talking to someone else. She noticed that he had an accent and the butterflies in her stomach got worse. In that little moment Mai really wished she was the ladybug right now. "I'm Akira Miyuu, and I'm a junior this year.. What is your name?" At this point Mai finally realized just how rude she was being.

Taking in a deep breathe, Mai finally looked up at the boy who had introduced himself as Akira. Green met aquamarine for a brief second before she diverted her eyes elsewhere. Placing her hands together on her lap, Mai fiddled with her thumbs as she made attempts to calm herself down to give him an answer. Why is such a pretty person talking to me? And he wants to sit next to me!? The young woman simply couldn’t wrap her mind around the idea. Mai dared to look at his face again and noticed the kind smile that was present, in a way seeing that smile put her at ease if just a little. Come on Mai! Just breathe and answer his question and you’ll be just fine. She bit the corner of her lip and fiddled with her thumbs a bit more before finally she spoke.

“H-Hell-o. U-um y-you –ma-ay, I do-don’t m-mind at a-all.” Closing her mouth she got the first half of what she wanted to say done with but her stutter was getting worse every second. “I-I’m M-Mai K-Kon a-a J-Junior, pl-pleased t-to ma-mak-e y-you-you’re a-aq-aquian-tance.” Releasing a sigh of relief, Mai visibly deflated and had stopped twiddling her thumbs. Mai looked around at her surroundings quickly and noticed a few more people had shown up. And it sounded like someone was playing music, she couldn’t quite name the band but it did sound familiar.

Straightening up, Mai looked to where the music was coming from and saw that normally sized boy (Bishop) had shown up who looked kind of nice. He had soft looking blonde hair and she could tell, even from a distance, that he might be a bit athletic. He looks happy. Watching him a little while longer resulted in her witnessing him being chewed out by a girl with glasses and short purple hair (Yuuki). A small smile appeared on her lips. Mai felt a little bad for the boy but she didn’t get much time to worry about him since there was one sitting next to him. “Oh.” came quietly as she realized she might have looked like she was ignoring him. Quickly turning her attention back on Akira she bit her lip again and somehow ended up looking like she was going to cry. Okay you got this Mai. Just ask him something, anything. As she opened her mouth, a relatively tall boy (Kazuki) landed right in front of them.

His arrival had been so sudden that Mai jumped and made a small yelping sound of surprise. Watch where you stand!" Mai was still in utter shock, then again she probably wouldn’t’ have had the nerve to give a reply to him even if she wasn’t. “Well, see you later kiddos! All she could do really was watch him in silence as the young man ran off again with the guards right behind them. “Eh?” Mai really was just confused. She seriously hoped that this wasn’t a common occurrence in her first day at a new school.

"Hey. I didn't know you went here."

Arietta's eyes shifted from her phone, to a familiar voice standing in front of her. She was completely taken by surprise, then remembered a very important detail. She never got around to asking Saburo what school he was transferring to!! She didn't remember to ask, because their sessions took place in summer, but now she finally made the mistake of choosing to tutor someone who went to her own school. This was going to be very dangerous to her reputation and she'd have to go about this in all the right ways or she'd totally ruin her reputation.

"Shh.." She stated, putting her index finger over her mouth. To anyone watching, she was considerately thinking of Ryou, who was sleeping nearby, but she was honestly just looking out for her own hide. Arietta began playing with her long blonde hair in a fidgety manner, nervous about being exposed to her classmates as a 'nerd'. She didn't want to be seen as her true self, she was afraid that no one would like the real her, because no one did at her last school, "Not so loud." Arietta chimed, laughing softly with a warm expression on her face. She was anxious, freaking out that someone would put the pieces together, but she had to keep her composure. She didn't want to be seen frantic. She took a small breath to compose her nerves before speaking again, "Would you mind if I asked you to keep the details of our arrangement a secret between us? I don't want to look like some kind of nerd." She informed Saburo, eyes shifting to those around them, then back to him. She pocketed her phone, and stood up to talk to him properly, dusting of her skirt after she was upright.

"Being seen with you is alright, but just don't tell anyone that I'm tutoring you. I don't want to be 'that' girl.." She whispered, careful to keep a low tone, just in case there were any eavesdroppers. Sure, Saburo didn't dress like the typical guys Arietta would hang out with, but she liked him as a person. He wasn't bad to look at, for a bit of a bad boy that is, and she was also getting paid to tutor him, so that was definitely a plus. She cared about her reputation a lot, and she was not about to throw it down the drain. Then she tilted her head, a bit confused. Why did he come over here? Was he just being nice, or did he have a question? She was completely clueless, so she pulled out her cell phone, "Though, when you need during school homework help, you can send me a text instead of asking it face to face. It's more discreet that way. Do you think you'll need my number?" She asked in a curious tone, innocently blinking as she held up a light pink phone, with music notes and a girly white bow on the front of it.

"Hot stuff, coming through!"

Arietta fell backwards when Kazuki tore through, her back hitting the bench she was sitting on a few minutes prior. Arietta landed on the ground in front of the bench, but her back up against the bench, probably a tad bruised, but nothing too seriously injured other than her pride, "Miyamoto-teme!" She hissed at him, obviously not amused by his current antics. She knew he didn't necessarily mean to make her fall, but now she was really embarrassed and didn't care if he knew she was angry with him or not. She looked like a fool sitting on the ground and getting knocked over in front of everyone, while in mid-conversation, that was totally humiliating.

"When you snooze, you lose!"

"You're the worst. He was sleeping!" Arietta called out, sticking her tongue out at Kazuki in disgust, her blood boiling. Kazuki definitely was not Arietta's favorite person, in fact, she borderline hated him. She didn't necessarily hate anyone, well, except for Shiori Kitogawa, but Kazuki was very close to pushing her boundaries as well. She was going to make him pay for this, especially since he made her fall right in front of Saburo and anyone else who just so happened to be watching. She wanted to rip his head off right about now, but she forced a calmer expression onto her face. She didn't want to be seen as grumpy or short tempered, there were a lot of new students and she definitely didn't want to make a bad impression like Kazuki.

Image


She pushed herself to her feet, dusting herself off again, averting her eye contact, "Sorry about that... Miyamoto-san.. he's always making things difficult for everyone." Arietta mumbled, still a bit flustered from her embarrassing fall, but also irritated with the guy who caused it in the first place. Then she remembered that he tore in between them, and her eyes widened a bit. Did Saburo get hurt? She was so embarrassed and angry that she had nearly forgotten his well being. She felt bad, and decided to make sure that Saburo didn't get hurt either, "Are you alright, Inoue-san?" She asked, giving him a once over to make sure that he was alright, tilting her head in different directions to get a good look at him. Then her attention turned to Ryou, who got stepped on as well. She gave him an apologetic look, then bowed very quickly, "I'm so sorry, are you alright?" She asked with a curious expression on her face, though she knew he probably wouldn't realize why she was apologizing for something Kazuki did, she felt the need to do so anyway.

Arietta felt bad for sitting next to Ryou without asking for permission. If Saburo had seen her somewhere else, the maybe he and Ryou would have been spared from this incident. Miyamoto only had to go through this crowd because of me... If I didn't come over here, there wouldn't have been a crowd.. It's all my fault that everyone nearly got trampled just now..

"Uhh.. Y-You.. Don't like music?"

Yuuki's eyes widened at this question. It wasn't that she didn't like music, but music was simply a distraction, just like this boy. She wasn't sure how to answer this, so she went with the simplest one, the truth. She did not care about this boy's opinion of her, nor anyone else's for that matter, "Music is just another distraction from my studies. I haven't listened to music in several years. So, I guess you could say I don't like it."

"I thought- that maybe some people would like something nice to listen to."

"I'm sure some of the others enjoy it, but I don't." She replied back, realizing that he wasn't trying to actively irritate her with his music, he just seemed to do it naturally. His accent was also foreign, so he probably didn't realize the customs here.. So she let out a sigh and rubbed the back of her neck. How did she get stuck dealing with the disrespectful foreigner?

"Oh umm.. N-No thank you. I couldn't take something that's yours, especially something so personal."

"Okay," He refused the headphones, so she put them back in her bag, not even a bit insulted by his denial. She didn't see things like that, though she knew that a lot of people did. Headphones were just a means of listening to audio without disturbing others, she didn't understand how they qualified as a personal object. Everyone had a pair, it wasn't undergarments or clothing, nor were they one of a kind. This boy was simply strange, and she wasn't getting on the right foot with him at all.

"I have my own headphones. I'm sorry to have bothered you, I didn't know it would cause a problem."

Yuuki tilted her head as the blond boy bowed, a bit surprised, but also a little impressed. Despite being a foreigner, at least he knew how to properly apologize. She let out a sigh, seeing as this was a lot more irritation than she originally planned to put up with, but decided to hear him out since he seemed to be sorry and it would be more than a little rude to walk away after chewing him out. She did have respect for manners, "Be more mindful of your surroundings next time." She stated in a calm and indifferent tone, it was so robotically neutral.

"I-I hope you won't hold this against me... I hate to make a bad first impression my first day here."

"I don't have the time to hold grudges against people, so you have nothing to worry about. Just don't do it again, at least not around me." She replied in a flat tone, not really concerned with whether or not he was genuinely apologetic or not. She just wanted results. So long as the behavior did not repeat, she didn't care if he liked her or hated her. The end result would still be the same. Though she did feel something in her stomach, a knot of sorts, but she blamed it on her breakfast. Perhaps she didn't fully cook the eggs? She didn't recognize this feeling, but how could she? It had been years since she'd experienced guilt.

"Get out of the way love birds!"

Yuuki's eyes widened, and as the tall rampaging guy (Kazuki) grew closer. She instinctively withdrew herself from his range of reach, falling backwards on the ground afterwards. It wasn't the dark haired guy's fault (Kazuki), at least not physically. He didn't even touch Yuuki, but she landed on the ground anyhow. How you might ask? Well, Yuuki, being Yuuki, did not want to get close to the stranger, so she stumbled backwards and lost her footing, all just to avoid getting close to the wild hooligan (Kazuki) physically. She really did not like being close to other people, and chose to risk getting hurt instead.

"Wah!"

Her golden eyes landed on Bishop who also fell, but he seemed to jump out of the way, landing a bit more intentionally than she had. She noticed the expression on his face, and despite doing everything she could to hold it back, she ended up laughing. This guy was just...weird. She wasn't sure why, but after seeing his expression, the laugh came out without permission. They nearly got knocked out, yet he wasn't even mad? He didn't seem phased by that animal's behavior even a bit, while inside she was fuming. She wanted to chew out that other guy more than she did Bishop, yet the blond seemed to forgive the stranger almost immediately. She didn't understand this boy at all (Bishop).

What a strange person. When her laughter died down, Yuuki realized that she'd dropped her guard, and quickly stood. She bowed in a formal manner toward the blond's (Bishop) general direction then immediately returned to her spot under the tree without another word. She opened her book again with a nervous haste, going over math problems to keep her mind off of what just occurred. It had been over three years since one of her classmates managed to make her laugh, and she'd known that girl her entire life. Five minutes and this goof of a person had her almost in tear jerking laughter? Just who was this guy, and what was with this kind and strange behavior? He didn't even try to argue with her over the music, nor did he insult her. He was the same way when the black haired boy (Kazuki) zoomed through like a monkey swinging through branches after a banana.

Her pencil moved across the paper quickly, though her thoughts were definitely distracted. She was not getting the problems done nearly as fast as she would have liked. Distraction.. see..? People are just obstacles that are meant to deter us from our goals.. After a few minutes she was able to regain composure and work on her homework in peace, but her gaze did discreetly drift back to the blond once or twice before that. She didn't even realize it, but she still had a light blush across her cheeks. The pink shade adorned her cheeks ever since her eyes met Bishop's after they evaded an incident with that wild boy (Kazuki).

“H-Hell-o. U-um y-you –ma-ay, I do-don’t m-mind at a-all.”

Akira was a bit relieved, very appreciative that the girl accepted her so easily. Though she just found the girl to be even cuter now that she realized the girl was timid. Akira was going to sit down, but decided to wait until she caught the girl's name first. She was still getting used to proper Japanese introductions after all.

“I-I’m M-Mai K-Kon a-a J-Junior, pl-pleased t-to ma-mak-e y-you-you’re a-aq-aquian-tance.”

"Kon-san.. That's a really short family name. It's nice to meet you, Mai-chan!" Akira stated, opting to call the girl by first name instead after blinking a few times in surprise by the short length of her name. The girl's first name was Mai, another short name. Though, for some reason, it really fit. Akira couldn't imagine her name being anything else now that she'd heard it. Then she felt the need to admit something about Mai, and before she could even begin to assess whether she should keep it to herself or not, she blurted out the words, "You're so kawaii, Mai-chan." She said this in a serious and shameless tone, a smile on her face the entire time. She wasn't nervous, nor was she joking. She didn't even seem to realize that this would more than likely really embarrass the short girl, especially since Mai was under the impression that Akira was a boy, judging by the uniform, short hair, etc. Akira often forgot that she should be more conscious about her behavior, especially since she was a 'boy' now. It was easy to forget that girls were a bit less forward here, and far easier to embarrass than in Britain due to the stricter formalities here.

Akira noticed where Mai's eyes landed, and she let out a soft chuckle. The blond boy (Bishop) was getting told off by a lavender haired female, and she definitely found it a bit amusing. She liked a girl that spoke her mind, just about as much as she liked shy girls like Mai. Akira then spoke up, not realizing how it would sound, "I like girls like that. It's a good thing that she knows what she wants and tells others when they've displeased her. Ne?" She wasn't even aware that it sounded like she meant she was romantically attracted to girls like the angry bookworm (Yuuki). Akira was oblivious to the fact that she would have to watch her words to avoid misunderstandings, and it would surely put her in a lot of awkward situations in the near future.

"Watch where you stand!"

Akira instinctively shot forward in reaction to Mai's shock and the unknown guy's (Kazuki's) entrance, leaning forward and shielding Mai from the possibility of danger with her own body. Akira didn't even stop to consider that it might make the girl embarrassed, she was too worried about her general. She wasn't sure if this loud delinquent would lose his footing, and she wouldn't have been able to live with herself if she stood by and allowed the smaller girl to get stepped on or hurt in any way. She knew she was very close to the other girl because of this, but she couldn't help what her instincts caused her to do, "You could have hurt her! Watch where you're going!" Akira shouted in the tall guy's (Kazuki's) direction, twitching a bit.

"Well, see you later kiddos!"

Guys who put girls in danger.. How dare he risk hurting her for his own sake! She thought to herself, both of her fists clenched as she held in her anger, knuckles turning a pale white as she watched the guy sprint off and interrupt several other conversations.

“Eh?”

Then she remembered she was leaning over Mai in a defensive way. Akira blinked down at the smaller girl and removed herself from Mai's personal space. Akira immediately rubbed the back of her neck and let out a nervous laugh, realizing she probably made the girl feel very uncomfortable, "S-sorry about that.. I was scared he was going to end up landing on you. I hope I didn't make you feel uncomfortable." She replied in a nervous tone, hoping she didn't scare the girl too much with her forward actions. The Japanese were a more reserved group of people, and Akira realized her actions were definitely defined as an invasion of space.

Akira sat down with a generous amount of space between herself and Mai, eyes averting. She realized that she probably came across as some perverted boy from Mai's perspective, but it honestly wasn't like that. Now everything is awkward.. She was just responding to protect the small girl from injury. She never wanted to see someone get hurt if she could take their place. After watching her parents die, she didn't want to see anyone else get hurt, especially people she liked..and this girl was absolutely adorable. She was shy, and very petite, Akira kind of wanted to poke the girl's cheek to make sure that she was real, but she refrained from touching her, even when she'd used her own body to shield Mai from the black haired parkour guy (Kazuki).

"Why did you look like you were going to cry earlier... Did someone say something mean to you?" Akira asked with innocent curiosity on her face, completely baffled by the true cause of Mai's shyness and nervousness. She didn't realize that Mai found her 'pretty' and was extra nervous because she was a 'boy' who approached her out of nowhere. Akira was a bit dense when it came to understanding others, which often put her in uncomfortable situations like this one. It was safe to say that Akira was no good at reading in between the lines. She'd come to a completely off base conclusion in the end, "If they did, just point them out and I'll make them apologize." she responded with a cheerful grin on her face, running a hand through her hair. This uniform was rather hot, considering the sun was blaring down on them and she unbuttoned the black jacket of her uniform to reveal the white shirt, letting out a soft sigh afterwards.

"Kon-san.. That's a really short family name. It's nice to meet you, Mai-chan!"” Mai looked surprised at having been called Mai-chan. She certainly wasn’t expecting Akira, who she only just met, to use chan. The small girl also never really thought about how short her name was. I guess it is pretty short. It seemed like Akira was going to be full of surprises by what he said next or rather blurted out. "You're so kawaii, Mai-chan." Mai was once again caught off guard. Her small lips parted but no sound came through as she could only gawk in embarrassment at having been called kawaii. She could feel the heat rush to her face as it soon turned the color of a tomato. It was rather difficult to tell how she should take it. Akira said it so easily with that same smile he has had since she saw him.

It looked like Akira did notice her eyes wondering since he commented on it. Even if it was unintentional, Mai now knew of his preference and felt a little sad at not being the type of girl he liked. Wait what am I saying? I have only just met him. With a tight lipped smile, Mai clenched her fists on her lap and quickly shook her head. The color had yet to leave her face and it seemed to only get darker at what occurred next. When the other boy had landed in front of them a figure suddenly shot forwards to shield her from any oncoming injury. Mai pulled away instinctively, bringing her arms up to keep Akira’s body from getting too close but he was still pretty close. Thankfully any imminent danger she was in had gon and Akira stepped away from Mai whose face was an incredibly bright red and looked to be in a bit of a daze. "S-sorry about that.. I was scared he was going to end up landing on you. I hope I didn't make you feel uncomfortable.

His apology brought her back to reality. The dazed looked now gone Mai was still red in the face but it had gone down. She quickly shook her head no to his apology since she couldn’t quite make her mouth move. The small girl still wouldn’t have been able to say anything even if she did, her brain was currently in overdrive trying to process what had just occurred. Mai noticed that Akira had put quite some distance between the two of them and she felt bad for having made him feel nervous. Taking in a deep breathe Mai was able to speak but the stutter had gotten considerably worse. “T-Th-Than-nk y-yo-you f-fo-or s-sa-savin-ing m-me.” she said with a wide smile on her face.

There was a brief lull of awkward silence which Mai was thankful for. It gave her time to gather her scattered thoughts and calm her pounding heart. A hand unconsciously drifted to the side of her face as she felt the heat burn her hand a bit. I hope I don’t get a fever. Still wrapped up in her thoughts Mai still couldn’t believe Akira had protected her like that. The only people she knew to have ever done that were her papa and mama. For a brief moment her thoughts drifted to her parents and she wondered how well they were doing with her not there. "Why did you look like you were going to cry earlier... Did someone say something mean to you?" Her thoughts were interrupted by his question but Mai was a bit happy that he was talking to her, even if it was about a touchy subject. “N-No o-on-e d-did.” shaking her head as she spoke. If they did, just point them out and I'll make them apologize." Mai wasn’t sure if it was the words he said or the cheerful smile he had as he said them that caused her to react the way she did. Mai suddenly began to giggle quietly to herself.

Realizing that her giggle may have been taken as her making fun of him, she stopped abruptly and apologized as quickly as she could. “ Ah! I-I’m so-sorry. I-I di-didn’t m-mean to-to l-lau-gh.” quickly standing to bow in apology. After waiting for a little while Mai stood up right, bringing her hands in front of her as she grabbed the edges of her uniform’s skirt. Her green eyes avoided looking at Akira again out of embarrassment. She heard his sigh and mistook it for him becoming impatient since she had yet to answer his initial question. Oh. Ah I di-didn’n’t r-real-lize I-I wa-as ig-noring y-you.” Looking away again, Mai frowned as she sat back down. She wasn’t sure if he would still want to talk to her and for a moment she was content with that. Suddenly her cousins words echoed in her mind Make some new friends. Swallowing the lump in her throat, Mai’s small fists tightened as she turned to face Akira. Biting her lip again, Mai mustered up all the courage she had to ask him a single question. “ M-May I-I cal-call y-you Akira-kun?” Since he had decided to call her by first name she thought it was only appropriate if she did the same otherwise it may have been seen as rude.

BISHOP TRANDER

Image


At every attempt the blonde haired freshmen took at turning this into a positive conversation was shot down.... Terribly. If anyone was close enough to listen it would be absolutely brutal to hear the way she cut down his comments with counters of her own. The two were just far too opposite in their philosophies of thinking. However Bishop didn't fret in the least, at least on the outside. <Man... She's so cold.> "I don't have the time to hold grudges against people, so you have nothing to worry about. Just don't do it again, at least not around me."

"Ahh... R-Right." A small part of him rebelled, wanting to tell her off for demanding that he be inconvenienced because only one person out of the many around was offended. That wasn't fair at all, like the one person that gets offended by a joke so everyone has to watch what they say around the office from now on. But just like him, he relented and let her say what she wanted and accommodated. Bishop liked to make people happy, he was a people pleaser. The blonde girl was hard to read, but to be honest he wasn't very good in reading people and had been manipulated in the past. What plagued the young blonde was that people around him always thought that he was too nice. That he was trying too hard to be liked, or was trying to get people to like him for some suspicious reason. The worst was when girls thought he was trying too hard to show that he liked them, which lead him to instantly being manipulated in doing favors or going out of his way for someone. In his mind he was just doing people a favor, none the wiser even to this day.

After the commotion of that older kid (Kazuki) swinging past them, he looked to Yuuki nervously playing off his intentional flop as nothing more but an unfortunate event. He had a curious expression on his lips watching her for a moment, until the violet haired girl (Yuuki) started to laugh uncontrollably. He blinked and laughed nervously with her, having probably missed something that was so amusing. <Is she... Laughing at me?> He watched her continue until the laughter died. He was somewhat speechless unsure of what to say, so he just remained in his spot sitting still and watcher her stand up, bow then leave. Bishop blinked and slowly stood up watching her go. "She was... Definitely laughing at me." He sighed and lowered his head as a sweatdrop drooped from his head. "I'm such a dork..." Bishop moved to sit on the bench and moved to grab his earplugs and set them in, turning on some music again but only for him to listen to this time. He was oblivious to to Yuuki's glances keeping his head down, in a somewhat defeated manner. He figured it would be best to keep a low profile from here on out. Others probably saw and were sizing him up. He knew about the rumors of high school were, but that was American high school He was in a completely different pond now, and Bishop was a little fish. A little goldfish. His head flinched lower remembering that was a nickname some kids called him, when they made fun of him... Goldfish, because of his hair and that he swam. Bishop's hands slid to rest on his knees and clenched lightly while he looked down at his feet deep in thought, subconsciously biting at his lip while his eyes shimmered with doubt and memories.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Let me sleep
as I do, I will have dreams
in them, I could get to see you
smiling at me so serenely and happy
so, let me sleep like this
never wake me up."
================================

























































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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rhys leaned his head back and closed his eyes with his hands stable on the bench. A nice calm breeze passed his way, sending long strands of his hair in even further disarray than it was already. The serene morning was soon bustling with activity as more and more students slipped in by the minute. Schools are probably all the same no matter what part of the world you’re in. He reflected on his school days in Britain and all the trouble he got in with the other kids. He was always rough housing for fun and the pain never bothered him because he couldn’t feel it. The problem with not being able to feel pain was he could never really tell if he was pushing others too hard or even himself. It also makes me feel inhuman...

"Etto... the weather's really hot today.." Rhys startled, opened his eyes and quickly turned his head to face the girl (Shiori) beside him. He had almost forgotten that she was present bearing in mind what a quiet bench mate she had been the last few minutes. Everyone else was also nosier compared to the way they were. “Yeah…” Rhys answered before leaning his head back again, resuming closing his eyes and enjoying the breeze not expecting her to say much else. So, there are still people who casually talk about the weather… there isn’t much to say about it though.

"I'm Shiori Kitogawa." Out of surprise, Rhys reacted with a slight twitch. He didn’t expect the girl to give out her name so freely. In fact, he wasn’t expecting anything at all when he decided to sit there. “Hm?” He opened his eyes again and slouched forward, placing his hands on his knees before turning his head to eye her. His natural intimidating look took over as he tried to read her behaviour. He wasn’t sure what the girl’s--- Shiori’s, motives were as she didn’t look happy at all about introducing herself. So, why did she? She didn’t owe it to him or anything. Rhys watched as Shiori’s shoes kept moving against the concrete in a fidgety display. He sighed inwardly. Women.. if only they could just say whatever it is they wanted. His thought trail applied to his own mother too. She was never very direct about what she wanted with the only exception being chores where it was as straight forward as it could get with sentences like ‘clean your room’, ‘do the laundry’ yadda yadda…

When Shiori’s eyes made contact with his, Rhys let out a light gasp that was barely audible as he was startled again. He hadn’t been able to see her face clearly until now since she had her nose in the books so to speak and down focused on the ground a bit earlier, but looking clearly now as she looked back at him… she was quite pretty. Her hair was silky long and her eyes were a shade of violet he hadn’t seen before. Oh… right, I’m in Japan. Of course the women are beautiful… He regained his composure as the gaze exchange didn’t last long. The mysterious girl went back to staring at the ground as if it were more interesting than he was.

"You don't have to reply to me, I was just trying to be polite, that's all.." Finally, a direct one. he thought sarcastically to himself. I think I just learned a valuable thing about women today… when they’re direct it’s like a kick to the balls. Rhys’ pride was a bit injured when Shiori said he didn’t have to reply back. It was like she introduced herself out of obligation rather than an interest in him. He knew there was no real sense of obligation for her to talk to him but the fact she said what she said…. Ugh, it’s messing with my head.
He placed a palm on his forehead and closed his eyes as if he was having a migraine. You’re fucking overthinking this man just because you haven’t talked to the other half of the race since you got here. Taking a deep breath, he turned to the Japanese beauty and spoke. “Rhys… but in Japan you go by surnames right? So it’s—“ before he could finish, someone (Kazuki) was starting a racket. "As if I'd let you catch me! Suckers!" Rhys instinctively smirked. Boy, does he remind me of back in the day.. The smirk faded quickly when the guy ran over to where they were. "S'cuse me! Up and over!" Rhys didn’t flinch as the student (Kazuki) jumped over the bench. He could only watch as the guy (Kazuki) continued to cause more mayhem on the school grounds. "Gah…” He scratched the back of his head still not phased and wanting to stay out of it before turning to his newest acquaintance. “…Browning.” He finished his name, leaning a cheek against his knuckles as he cracked them.

“Yeah…”

She didn't really expect an answer from the quiet male (Rhys), and she stole a glance at him out of the corner of her eye when she felt he wasn't looking. He didn't seem to want to socialize, but she knew better than anyone that a cold demeanor didn't mean that the person themselves were truly cold-hearted. She had a lot of trouble making friends, because she would always panic and say something cocky or rude. She didn't mean to, she was just afraid of getting hurt and the words came out of her mouth of their own accord. He seemed to be enjoying the weather, but she wasn't necessarily fond of it, especially since their uniforms consisted of dark colored jackets. The uniforms were gorgeous, but they definitely weren't comfortable on the hotter days of the year.

“Hm?”

She immediately tensed up a bit, realizing that she might have been barking up the wrong tree.. He didn't give his name back yet, so perhaps he truly didn't want to talk to her? Was she reading into the situation too much? Her mother always told her she expected too much out of people. Perhaps that was true? He was a very attractive guy, but in a delinquent sort of way. Usually long hair looked really bad on men and made them look like stoners, but she found it rather suited this boy rather well. He also had brown eyes, a common shade around Japan, yet his hair was not. The blond-brunet hair color was very strange, a rarity to be honest, and it was an instant give away that he was foreign, or at least had a foreign parent. She knew of a few others with light hair, but they were all transfers or had parents from western descent.

Though when his eyes landed on her, she immediately felt herself become very nervous. It was very unnerving to know he was looking at her, and she began to regret her direct choice of conversation. Do I have something on my face? Did my mascara run?

She began panicking, especially after she thought she heard a gasp, but she wasn't entirely sure. It could have just been her mind playing tricks on her, but she was totally a nervous train wreck inside of her head. She kind of wanted to run off, but that would only make the situation worse.. and the program would start soon. She didn't need to run off, it would only complicate things in the end, because she'd be too embarrassed to return here. Though after telling him that he didn't have to talk to her, she knew it came off as a bit indecisive, especially since she chose to speak to him first.. She couldn't help it though, every time she got too nervous about whether someone would like her or not, she'd always say the exact opposite of what she meant.

Out of the corner of her eye, Shiori noticed that the boy grasped his forehead, and it seemed as though he was in pain. Did he have a headache? Is that why he was so quiet? Immediately she rummaged through her bag, before extending out her hand. There was two small red pills still inside of their foil containers in a gloved palm, definitely some kind of brand like Tylenol. She didn't make eye contact, but it was the least she could do for being so much trouble. She doubted she was making this guy's life any easier. Though, she was most likely the only student who wore silk gloves on campus. The gloves were a sleek black, and definitely femininely designed. She wore these often, but there was no obvious sign as to why.

“Rhys… but in Japan you go by surnames right? So it’s—“

She was surprised that he started speaking again, and she got a name, albeit it was only his given name instead of his full name. Though to her relief, he mentioned that in Japan, individuals addressed each other by their last names. Thank god.. for a minute there I thought he was going to expect me to address him by his first name.. She had a light blush on her cheeks from the thought. She definitely would have said something harsh if he'd asked her to call him Rhys. That was too forward, way too soon. She was on a totally different planet, no where near addressing boys or girls by their first names. She didn't even notice the racket, but she did notice when Rhys quit speaking. Her eyes lifted just in time to see a dark haired male approaching them with the speed of an angry rhinoceros stampede. Her eyes widened, especially since she recognized this person. This person was none other than Kazuki Miyamoto. If there was anyone in this school that she was most terrified to speak to, it was definitely him. He was outgoing, loud, reckless, and definitely didn't understand personal space. She did not want him to get anywhere near her, because he was unpredictable and no one knew what was on that psycho's mind.

"S'cuse me! Up and over!"

Shiori let out a soft gasp and ducked down as fast as she could, still sitting on the bench, but lowered her form to where she wouldn't become a casualty of Kazuki's escape. He jumped over their bench, and Shiori stopped breathing for a moment, completely terrified. She did not want to be physically touched by anyone, and she couldn't continue to breathe until after he cleared their bench and moved towards another where a petite ivory haired boy (Akira) was talking to a small ebony haired girl (Mai). She remained hunkered down for a few minutes, her heart beating really fast. She didn't see that coming at all, and she was frozen from the fear that hadn't quite worn off yet. She was not trembling, for the fact that she couldn't move at all. Her eyes were glued to the ground and she was breathing very slowly to calm herself down. She didn't even pay attention to her surroundings, and only caught the end of what Rhys was saying. She immediately sat back up, but continued the pattern of avoiding eye contact.

“…Browning.”

"We do address each other by last name here, unless we feel emotionally connected and close to one another. So I would be Kitogawa-san, and you would be Browning-san. You would use -chan, or -kun at the end to address close friends.." She replied, her fingers now trembling, seeing as she just recently mustered up the courage to move. Though her eyes shifted to him once more, a little curious. Why was he cracking his knuckles? Was he trying to intimidate people? Was he going to get in a fight? She was completely baffled, "Welcome to Airdalen, be aware of the fact that this place is full of idiots.." her tone was much colder, and she was definitely referring to Kazuki, but also several others. Although she didn't hate Kazuki, she definitely didn't like him very much.

"Every day has been so wonderful.
I've met a lot of people and seen
A lot of things which I could never
Before. This is all thanks to you."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Come now, you know what they say don't you? Trouble is just another red flag which leads to having a grand time of fun. It isn't? Well, that's the way with me."

|| Current Location ✦ Airdalen Academy ||
|| [ Theme ✦ [Detention ] ||





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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“T-Th-Than-nk y-yo-you f-fo-or s-sa-savin-ing m-me.”

To Akira's pleasant surprise, Mai seemed very thankful about her actions. Akira was completely baffled by Mai's response. Most girls would have been angry. Though Mai directly had thanked her, and this brought Akira a sense of relief, but also restored her easygoing nature to it's proper order. Thank goodness.. I was afraid that she would think I was creepy.. Akira thought to herself, glad that this turned out for the better in the end. She really needed to be more careful, because her actions as a boy and as a girl would all come across differently. A girl could get closer to a girl than she could as a boy.. and she often forgot about those social rules.

“N-No o-on-e d-did.”

"That's good." Akira nodded her head, a bit relieved. She didn't know anyone here, and getting into a fight wouldn't have done good towards her reputation, though if someone had been bullying this girl, Akira knew that she'd throw her reputation out the window to defend her. Ever since her mother died Akira felt the need to protect those she cared for, especially the women in her life. I'll do my best to keep you safe.

“Ah! I-I’m so-sorry. I-I di-didn’t m-mean to-to l-lau-gh.”

Akira laughed as well, waving her hand at Mai dismissively, "It's alright. I'd laugh at me too.. I mean look at how short I am.. I guess it's because I hate milk." She chuckled, not offended by the laugh at all. Though she figured that if she were a real boy, her ego might have actually been shot a little. Sure, she was small, but she knew a bit about fighting and she was actually very athletic. Though there was no way that Mai would know that simply by meeting her. These uniforms did well at hiding Akira's muscle, especially since she was rather short and skinny for a male student, "I'm stronger than I look though, so don't worry." She chimed, a slightly cocky grin on her face.

"Oh. Ah I di-didn’n’t r-real-lize I-I wa-as ig-noring y-you.”

Akira put her hands up in a defensive manner, shaking her head, "It's not that." She explained in a rather desperate manner. She didn't feel that way at all, and it was finally becoming obvious to Akira that this girl was simply timid all of the time. She wasn't used to interacting with timid people, so Akira knew she would have to try her best to be subtle and respectful to Mai's boundaries, but subtle just wasn't wired into Akira's nature. She was very blunt, and not to mention very affectionate, reckless, and twice as much curious. She rubbed the back of her neck, feeling bad for giving Mai the wrong idea. She would have been more careful if she'd of known her actions would cause Mai to feel guilty. Akira's eyes turning toward the sky for a moment, pondering how to explain the situation, "It's just, it's really hot out today... I unbuttoned my jacket and it felt nice when the breeze hit, that's all." She reassured Mai with her signature goofy grin plastered on her face.

She then turned to directly face Mai, a sincere look on her face as she continued, "Besides, I don't mind if you're quiet sometimes." She added, looking around to make sure that no more delinquents were rushing towards them. Was this going to be a constant thing? She figured this school would have been delinquent-free considering it's tuition cost and reputation. Though she figured there were plenty of delinquents with heavy purses. Immediately a frown formed on her face as she thought of rich people, seeing as Akira was not particularly fond of the upper class. Her biological father, Watari Miyuu, left her mother and he was quite wealthy. She couldn't help but believe her mother would have still been alive today if her father had never abandoned them.. and she's held a bit of a grudge ever since towards those who qualified as the wealthy 1% of society. She never voices this, but her grandmother constantly urges her to marry someone rich and it really irks her to no end. She would never do that, ever. It was half the reason she took up the persona as a boy. She couldn't attract guys if they believed she was one as well. Friendship, that's all she was after. She didn't mind befriending rich kids, but she definitely would never fall in love with one. Love is reckless, and a gamble. A gamble I'm not willing to make.. As reckless as she was, she was not fond of gambling, especially if it would cause problems for her family in the future.

“M-May I-I cal-call y-you Akira-kun?”

Akira had gotten so lost in her own thoughts that she'd completely missed Mai's struggle to get these words out, but thankfully the words were loud enough to jar her back into reality. Akira blinked a bit as she let herself take in Mai's words. A light blush crossed her face, considering she'd never been called so familiarly since she'd left Britain. Akira found herself nodding her head shortly after, not taking a lot of time to think on it. It wasn't a big deal, Mai was a girl too, "It's only fair, ne?" She responded with a kind smile. Then she noticed something in Mai's hair, tilting her head for a second before it became clear as to what it was.

"Hold still, you've got something in your hair. I'll get it, okay?" Akira informed Mai in a calm tone, gently reaching forward and plucking a cherry blossom from the short ebony hair on Mai's head before presenting the pink little blossom to her as evidence. She didn't want the girl to think it was a cheap trick to touch her after all. Akira still wasn't used to the beauty of the Cherry Blossom trees, it was her favorite part about moving to Japan. Akira examined the blossom with a complex expression on her face, but quickly released it, "All better."

Just as quickly her expression returned to her outgoing and hyperactive one. For a 'boy', Akira was very expressive, and released her thoughts very freely. She wasn't afraid to talk about her feelings at all, even in front of a new acquaintance like Mai. I hope I can become close to this girl.. It's been too long since I've had a friend. Akira despite being bright and cheerful, wasn't very popular among other people. Sure, some people liked her around her neighborhood, but she wasn't anyone's favorite person. She was considered a bit annoying, especially since she was a hyper and cheerful boy. There were always social stigmas, and a cheerful girl was seen as cute, while a cheerful boy was seen as a slacker and a bit dumb in Japanese society.

Saburo wasn't really sure what was going on, but Arietta was acting pretty weird for some reason. Apparently she didn't want anyone else to know about the tutoring because someone might think she was a nerd. He didn't really think she was a nerd though, just smart. There was a difference. Last year there was this smart dude on the team who helped a lot with the plays and stuff. A nerd is like a person who doesn't have a life and just reads sci-fi comics or something.

"You're not a nerd." Saburo lowered his voice for Arietta's sake. "Nerds are the guys who really out of shape and just play otome games all the time." He assured the Senior. "But yeah, I'll keep it low key if you want."
"Though, when you need during school homework help, you can send me a text instead of asking it face to face. It's more discreet that way. Do you think you'll need my number?"
Saburo smiled, pulling out his own phone. "Sure, I'll take it."

Before Arietta could reply the conversation was interrupted. "Hot stuff, coming through!" before he got a chance to look up some random guy (Kazuki) pushed between him and Arietta. Luckily, Saburo was able to catch himself from falling. "Hey! What the hell!" He yelled at the dude after regaining balance. Who was this guy to be pushing him around? If they ever had a run in again, Saburo wouldn't cut the guy any slack.

"Are you alright, Inoue-san?" Saburo's head snapped back towards his tutor. In his short lived anger, he had sort of forgotten about her. From the looks of it, Arietta wasn't able to right herself in time from the flustered look she portrayed.
"Yeah...thanks." The freshman paused for a second, recalling his anger. "Who was that asshole?"

"That was Kazuki. He's pretty well known for pulling stuff like that. He's not that bad once you get to know him though." Tsuyoshi had followed the wake left by Kazuki, finding Saburo in the process.
"You know him?" Tsuyoshi nodded.
"Yeah, we hung out a couple times. I thought you'd like him." Saburo paused to stare at the senior for a moment.
"No, seriously." Tsuyoshi broke a smile. "When your not on the sharp end of his crap it's not that bad."
"Yeah, okay."

Sabruo's attention was diverted to a towering senior (Ryou) who was asleep just a moment ago. "Welcome to Airdalen."
"Uh...thanks man." For whatever reason, he remembered something his father had said once.
"You gotta know the line between being confident, and being stupid. Once you get that down, I think you'll do alright."
Starting beef with this guy was definitely on the stupid side.
"I guess, I'll see you two around then." With that, the giant took his leave.

"So...How's it going Arietta? Saburo tells me you got me in science. I mean it's kinda hard to get the class when the teacher doesn't either right? ...Well you gotta know the stuff to be tutoring it...right?" Saburo glanced at his friend, then at Arietta. He gave the blonde girl a shrug.

"Yeah...thanks."

"No problem." She chimed in a happy-go-lucky tone. Unaware that he noticed she'd lost her balance in the incident. Though what she didn't know definitely wouldn't hurt her. She'd probably drive herself crazy with embarrassment if she knew. It was better that she was oblivious to the fact.

"Who was that asshole?"

"That was Kazuki. He's pretty well known for pulling stuff like that. He's not that bad once you get to know him though."

...Not bad? Arietta's expression grew skeptical, and she wanted to lean forward and check Saburo's friend's temperature. There was a lot bad about Kazuki, and she kind of wanted to give that loud cocky asshole a piece of her mind, but then again, that would totally shatter the image she'd created for herself. Cute, popular, cool. She didn't do much of anything that would ruin those three aspects from describing herself, at least in public. Sure, she'd lose her temper now and then, but she never let herself get too out of hand. She didn't want others to hate her after all, "I guess you could say that.. In a way..." She laughed nervously, though she didn't mean a word of it.

"You know him?"

A boy she met once or twice at school named Tsuyoshi nodded in response and Arietta sighed, "Who doesn't know Miyamoto-san if they're a Senior? He's a major troublemaker. Some girls find him attractive, but I think he's simply annoying." She decided to add her two cents in while pouting. Her tone was a irritated, but she wasn't letting it get the best of her. She didn't recognize him at first, seeing as he wasn't as popular as most of the people she hung out with or was aware of. Then her mind began to wander, tuning out of the boy's conversation.

"Nerds are the guys who really out of shape and just play otome games all the time."

Those words rang through her ears in repetition like a broken record. He didn't realize just how close he was to her description. She was skinny, but she wasn't necessarily in shape.. She played Otome games.. the only part of his definition she definitely lacked was being a male... Though her mind was brought off of her depressive thoughts when Ryou spoke up.

"I'm fine. But, why are you apologizing?"

"Etto.. he might have avoided this spot if there wasn't a group of three here?" Arietta replied in a sheepish manner. Now that Ryou called her out on her apology, it didn't really make any sense in the end. She felt fairly stupid in the end. It made more sense in her head, but most things usually did, including her white lies she told to vamp up her life.

"It's not your fault."

Arietta was a bit shocked, but relieved that he didn't blame her. He also didn't ask them why they were standing so close to him while he was sleeping, so Arietta felt that this situation diffused rather well. She was glad that he was so understanding. If it had been someone else, she feared that it wouldn't have went so smoothly. Ryou seemed to be a lot nicer than he let on sometimes.

"Here."

"Eh?" Arietta was completely taken aback. Where did she miss? She was certain that she'd wiped down thoroughly after her fall, but apparently she missed a spot. She accepted the handkerchief, opening her pocket mirror. It wasn't her face, nor her hair.. so it had to be her clothes. Arietta turned, checking her uniform. Her jacket was clean... so it had to be..

"There's still some left."

H-how embarrassing!! Arietta's eyes widened a bit in shock, trying to find the spot on her skirt. She honestly thought she'd gotten it all... She used the handkerchief and wiped it off once she'd found it. A light blush formed on her cheeks, not necessarily because of Ryou himself, but because he noticed her in less than pristine condition.

"It's a thanks for your concern."

"A-Arigato, Giou-san..." Arietta replied, a grateful smile on her face as he explained himself. She honestly wasn't looking too far into it, since they were only acquaintances after all. She figured that he was just caught up in the habit of having to explaining every single act of kindness, especially since he had his own personal fan club that followed him almost everywhere he went.

"I guess, I'll see you two around then."

"See you later..." Arietta replied with a cheerful expression, waving to Ryou, "Thanks again, Giou-san!" She called out, glad that he didn't let her roam around school with dirt on her clothes. That would have been so horrible... She would have been too humiliated to face anyone after she found out about it if a lot of people would have noticed it.

"So...How's it going Arietta? Saburo tells me you got me in science. I mean it's kinda hard to get the class when the teacher doesn't either right? ...Well you gotta know the stuff to be tutoring it...right?"

Arietta, tilted her head and laughed a bit. She shook her head immediately, "I just stole the teacher's notes and we read them over.. Apparently they're not as hard when Sensei doesn't speak. Though I barely remember it. Do you really think I could remember all of that? School is not my strong suit." She lied and asked Tsuyoshi with a charming smile. Though on the inside she was fuming, she managed to keep her sweet and girly exterior in tact. Arietta's acting classes were really paying off, because at the moment she looked very friendly, yet there was nothing she wanted more than to strangle Saburo right now. Saburo already told someone!? How many people did he tell?! The day barely began and he already spilled her second biggest secret? This was going to be a long day, if not a long year. She immediately shot an angry glare at Saburo when Tsuyoshi wasn't looking, twitching a bit in irritation. She was definitely going to get him back for the lie she had to tell to keep her reputation protected, especially one that was on the spot like that..

"You never gave me your number, Inoue-san." She stated again, an innocent blink on her features as she held out her girly phone in his direction to put his number in it. She wasn't sure how he'd respond in front of his friend, but she brought it up now, because she would forget if she didn't. Not to mention the event would start at any time and she wouldn't get another chance soon, "I'll text it so you can have mine."

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

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

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

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

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

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

Johnny Farelli


Johnny watched the rowdy individual (Kazuki) get "detained" by security. Judging from the speed and the harshness put behind the words, Johnny imagined the shouting included much swearing. There was an odd feeling in the towering foreigner’s gut as he watched the situation play out. What was it… nostalgia? Johnny knew for certain that he saw something familiar in the events that unfolded the many metres away.

A fair number of the words, Johnny managed to recognize on account of his recent cram-reading of the booklet. He determined that the kid was not pleased about being at this school. Who knows? Johnny thought, Maybe there is something about this school that guy doesn’t like? It was then that he felt that he might have the thousand-yard stare again. Pre-emptively, he shook his head and returned to studying his dictionary.

Thanks to the enclosed space where little outside sound pierced the perimeter walls, Johnny heard many a dialogue delivered in Japanese from a few of the groups of students that had formed. He was barely able to catch to a handful of the words. What words he did catch, he sometimes managed to decipher what was being discussed between the other students. Most of the dialogue he caught was the clear, deliberate dialogue between two who appeared to be actresses. (Gen and Vika) Johnny did enjoy the performing arts, as they were similar to sports... and his personal interests... Plus, the clarity in their speech made it easier to decipher the individual words being said, which was great practice.

Amongst the students, Johnny saw the one who was taller by a measly inch. (Ryou) That one was awake and apparently mingling with the others. Johnny pondered if the near-clone would make an interesting rival to mutually hone each others’ skills with. If there was one thing he learned from his old schools, it’s that having no challenge bored him greatly. It was the main reason why his grades were so… average… Having someone potentially superior to him in some way would certainly give Johnny drive to do better throughout the year. Perhaps moving to this school was a good idea after all.

A little further away, the one with the pink hair stood out like a sore thumb, (Cassiopeia) obviously because of the pink hair… which was pink like a sore thumb. Johnny had seen people with dyed hair before in the States, mainly during family reunions in California. He never understood the appeal behind it. Was it a ploy for attention, like how some treat the idea of fitness? Johnny suspected not, because unlike fitness, dyed hair doesn’t directly benefit the wearer. The way others seemed to swarm around her was ample evidence for Johnny to determine this stranger was a very popular girl, much like he was back in his old schools. The foreigner had no clue how "school hierarchy” functioned in this country, so he wasn't sure what to think of this girl.

The rest seemed like individuals whom Johnny would properly meet soon enough. For now, the foreigner needed to get more familiar with the language. After setting his messenger bag next to him, Johnny leaned back on the bench and crossed one long, muscular leg over another. With one hand, he continued reading the dictionary. The other hand lay stretched, yet relaxed across the back of the bench. He was the picture of relaxation to onlookers, and the stretched nature of his pose allowed his physique to more easily show through the uniform.

As he continued reading, and trying to absorb as much information as he could, he bobbed his head to a tune only he could hear, one of many rock ballads by Jimi Hendrix and his old ‘Band of Gypsies’.

STAFF


“Hello.. everyone?” Mrs. Kita had been trying to gather the attention of all the juniors and seniors on the school grounds but the numbers were large and loud. Her soft-spoken voice couldn’t compete with all the commotion but she persisted, trying to fulfill her duty for the morning. “Hello? Uhm… hello?” A bead of sweat trickled down when none of the students had seemed to hear her. “Oh, well I can’t really blame them. It must be exciting for them to be here…” she released a sigh as she watched the students for a bit longer but the clock was ticking away.

Ms. Araya had just left the school hall to find Mrs. Kita standing by on watch. Mrs. Kita waved her over enthusiastically. "Ms. Kita, shouldn't the students be heading inside by now?" Ms. Araya asked with a stern voice. “Oh… but they just all seem to be having so much fun. I didn’t want to disturb.” Mrs. Kita chuckled nervously as Ms. Araya looked unimpressed. “Hmm..” luckily, she had assumed as much and brought a speakerphone just in case.

“ATTENTION, ATTENTION, ALL SENIORS AND JUNIORS PLEASE HEAD OVER TO THE SCHOOL HALL FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS. SENIORS, PLEASE HELP GUIDE THE JUNIORS SHOULD THEY GET LOST. WE’RE RUNNING BEHIND ON SCHEDULE SO STAY SHARP.”

“Stay… sharp?” Mrs Kita asked just as Ms. Araya proudly flicked her hair off her shoulder before tossing the speakerphone in Mrs. Kita’s hands. “That’s how you make an announcement.” Mrs. Kita tilted her head with a finger against her own bottom lip. "Oh... but I'm worried about disturbing the neighbors. I mean--" Before she could finish what she was saying, she noticed Ms. Araya's face turn pale all of a sudden. "You're right... what if they did get disturbed and make a report against me as a disturber of the peace?! Then it escalates and they they--" She grabbed Mrs. Kita's collar in a panic as the blonde tried to calm her paranoid tendencies with a hug. "There there, the popo won't come after you."

BISHOP TRANDER


Bishop was lost in thought for what felt like some time. Nobody seemed to want to bother him which he was thankful for honestly. He raised his head and looked around at the mass of new students and senior class students mingling and cliqueing together like the usual high school kids. And here he was on the outside looking in, without meaning too. He tensed up again as his wide blue eyes wondered. "Tsch..." <This was suppose to be different this time around... No more standing on the side.> His mind was a whirlwind of emotions and angst. Scanning the area he saw plenty of people getting along, having a secret wish that he could be in with them. Even if he was just standing their quietly, he just wanted to be there. Not on this bench here like a loner. It made him think of that 'forever alone' meme, picturing that grotesquely drawn face sitting above his shoulders instead of his own.

A sudden wind would catch him by surprise snapping Bishop out of his funk. He looked for the side, out beyond the fence of the schoolyard and outside to the rest of the world. He looked around him to observe the serene view of his school campus. He sighed realizing how fortunate he was to be here. This was a prestigious private school that could give him the edge he needed to excel in life, both in Japan and America. Bishop clenched his hands into fists and looked up nodding to himself. <Alright. This is only the first day, heck- the first hour of the first day. I'll be fine, I've only met one person so far. Maybe she doesn't like me, but I can't let that effect how I treat everyone else. I can't.> Standing up, the young freshmen grabbed his backpack and casually flung it over his shoulder and began to walk towards the center courtyard with his head on straight again. If he wanted to make friends, he had to be active about it! However, a blonde head of hair caught his attention. He looked to see that it was an older woman vainly attempting to grab the student's attention. He tilted his head curiously thinking that she has to be a teacher. Another woman came up and pulled out a mega-horn to begin speaking.

ATTENTION, ATTENTION, ALL SENIOR AND JUNIOR STUDENTS HEAD OVER TO THE SCHOOL HALL FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS. SENIORS, PLEASE HELP GUIDE THE JUNIORS SHOULD THEY GET LOST. WE'RE RUNNING BEHIND ON SCHEDULE SO STAY SHARP."

Bishop's expression became screwed up seeing as he walked closer to try and hear, he was well within the blast radius of Ms. Araya's voice. He rubbed his ears hearing them ring and looked around with one eye shut in irritation. "Well... I guess I'll just follow the crowd." Bishop rubbed his head and looked around him seeing people slowly start to make their way to the school hall. His steps were slow as he walked in the general direction trying not to net lost, it probably wasn't that hard to find. He met and avoided glances of kids his age and older looking at the foreigner as if they could smell it on him. It put him a little out of place, but he was sure that a lot of people were just as tense as he was. Bishop looped his other arm through his back pack and held onto the shoulder straps following the crowd, but he couldn't shake the look of a lost-confused puppy from his face. Faces blended together making it somewhat harder to tell specific people out, especially those he saw earlier. He marched towards the entrance that everyone would be going to, which seemed to be the right way as far as he was concerned. <It's time for school- I guess.>

“ATTENTION, ATTENTION, ALL SENIORS AND JUNIORS PLEASE HEAD OVER TO THE SCHOOL HALL FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS."

Seriously?! The quiet bookworm hissed in her mind, and was practically seeing red by this point. This was the second time in the past twenty minutes, and Yuuki was about to crack some skulls if people wouldn't quit forcing her to break her concentration. This was getting fairly ridiculous, and Yuuki wasn't known to have a lot of patience when it came to others bothering her. Yuuki closed her book with a sharp sigh, getting very irritated. This school was full of loud and obnoxious people, and that wasn't quite in the description when she signed up for Airdalen. She was beginning to get very fed up with the interruptions.. Though this time it was a teacher. Yuuki stood up, her belongings pressed to her chest as she grew closer to listen to the announcement. Head to the school hall? Why did they have everyone meet outside then? She could almost feel a vein popping out of her forehead, and she let out an annoyed huff that blew her bangs out of her face for a moment. This place was already becoming more trouble than it was worth, but she didn't have a lot of transfer options, besides, as long as she got a good recommendation, she'd put up with just about any amount of bullshit from this place.

"SENIORS, PLEASE HELP GUIDE THE JUNIORS SHOULD THEY GET LOST."

What does she mean if we get lost? There are so many people here it's fairly simple to find where we're going, especially since everyone is headed in the same direction. Any idiot could get there.. Although, some students didn't have common sense, like a few she'd already encountered, so on the flip side, Yuuki supposed that to a certain degree, she understood why this announcement was mandatory. Not everyone was born with an entire brain and the ability to utilize it, or so it seemed.

"WE’RE RUNNING BEHIND ON SCHEDULE SO STAY SHARP.”

You don't say? No one noticed that this school is less than punctual, except perhaps, me. Though the last thing that caught her attention was the fact that the teacher instructed everyone to stay sharp. Immediately the violet haired freshman quirked an inquisitive brow. What did she mean by that? Were they going to have to run to the building and avoid snipers? Were there booby traps? Or was she referring to that troublemaker from earlier? Immediately blonde hair rang through her memory, and the moment of laughter he'd brought on. She felt her knuckles clench, and her cheeks burnt a light shade of pink. He was a distraction if she'd ever seen one! He made her laugh when she hadn't done so in so long, though she blamed it on the idiotic behavior he'd displayed. Loud music right next to someone trying to study? That wasn't the brightest idea ever, even for a blonde. She was suddenly glad that Japan wasn't overrun by the stereotyped 'air-headed' American community.

She immediately began following the flood of students, maneuvering her way through the crowd to get further up in the line. She passed the blond headed boy (Bishop) from before, but decided to keep walking. The last thing she wanted was to be noticed. When inside, she sat in the left set of chairs, approximately around the middle of the isles. She went down that set until she reach the seat by the wall, and sat down to herself, waiting for the rows to fill up. Most of the students she watched pass avoided her, but she didn't really care. She had an intimidating look on her face for only one reason; it kept people away. Not many wanted to talk to the 'unfriendly' girl. That look alone deterred most from approaching, and the rest usually abandoned the endeavor of 'melting' her icy demeanor once they realized just how cold she was. She wasn't a warm and 'cute' girl. She wasn't like the girls she saw socializing at the the courtyard. She would never be like that, even when her goal was over. She didn't remember how to be like that. She couldn't remember the last time that she was worried about being girly and cute. As far as she remembered, she never even developed crushes. She'd pushed everyone away long before any of those things became important.

She was an all work and no play type of girl, because that's the life she had to take. There was no other option, if she wanted her dad to stand a chance, if she wanted to see him live to see his own grandchildren she would have to sacrifice enjoying her youth, and that was a price she was willing to pay, because how could she miss it if she didn't realize what she was missing out on? Besides, she'd have plenty of time to enjoy life once she landed a well paying job, right?

It took everything in her power to avoid pulling out her cram school workbook, but she kept her hands fidgeting in her lap. She had to pay attention, just in case these announcements turned out to actually be worth listening to. The last thing she wanted was to get lost, that would involve asking others for help, and in turn owing them... It would be a never ending cycle. They would never leave her alone and the person would just get in the way, despite whatever their intentions were. In the end, it was just more efficient to avoid others entirely, because people were too quick to try and make friends. They became like gum on the bottom of your shoe at any hint of kindness or interest, and she was NOT interested, at least not at the moment. When is this going to start?

I'm sorry, but I've got a lot to do, and I don't have time to waste... She didn't tell anyone, because she hated pity parties, and the girls who craved the attention that they brought with them. If people wanted to believe she was a 'bitchy know-it-all', then so be it. They didn't need to know anything other than that.

Attention, School Hall, announcements, and running,. Besides the simpler words, those were all that the Farelli boy picked up. If not for the fact that Johnny identified the speaker as a teacher with a megaphone, he would not quite have figured out what the amplified speech was supposed to mean. The subsequent movement of students also helped clue the foreigner into what was happening.

He slapped the book shut and slung his messenger bag over his shoulder. He kept his book out in case he needed it for what was to come. Until he got a translator, the book was his best option for understanding other students remotely. Johnny stood to his full height, easily towering over all save for the only other tall student. Despite being closest to the door, he was the third one to enter.

As he crossed the threshold, he bumped his head on the top door frame. “Sonuva…“ he hissed in a deep baritone, as clean and clear as an untouched glacier-fed freshwater spring, as he clutched at the struck area. The sharp pain subsided almost as quickly as it had arrived; his incredibly fit body already got to work to recovering the light bruising. Thankfully, the light injury was hidden by his thick, brown hair. As he massaged the struck area on his head, Johnny ducked slightly and cleared the door proper. He continued to follow the two students in front to the School Hall.

The interior was relatively cramped. It reminded Johnny of the smaller Jr. High school, and only made him long for the larger hallways of the many American high schools he visited before. He wasn’t terribly worried about his claustrophobia. He lasted through Elementary and Jr. High, he can handle this.

The floor was freshly waxed and polished, as befitting a brand-new school year. The budget seemed to be well-placed for a school such as this. Johnny could almost see his reflection in the tiles… almost… The foreigner continued scanning the corridors he and the two students in front of him travelled through. He got a good look at the many lockers, the windows revealing the courtyard he and the other students were leaving.

A tiny girl with violet hair (Yuuki) passed by Johnny, seemingly hell-bent to be among the first students in the hall. He recognized the girl as the one who was chewing out the “Coldplay Kid”. Seeing the dedication and speed put into the girl’s power-walk to get ahead of the crowd, Johnny felt a little inspired… Or, he thought, maybe it was just social awkwardness… Come to think of it, the foreigner couldn’t really tell which it was. He did like the idea of dedication, however; it helped with the whole “give me a challenge” angle he wanted this school to pose.

Johnny ducked his head slightly as he entered the school hall- a gymnasium with chairs set up in two large groups, cut down the middle with a single aisle. The platoon of chairs stood at-attention for a podium on a raised stage. Above the stage was a rolled-up net, which would typically be lowered to prevent the balls of many sports from getting knocked onto the stage, leaving students to rush up and recover the balls. Close to the rafters, amongst the rows of fluorescent lights, were a set of folded-up basketball backboards with hoops lined with fresh, white-as-teeth netting.

Being mindful of the shorter students, Johnny opted to take one of the black seats closer to the back, by a wall. The small number of rows meant he got a seat one behind and to the right from the violet-haired girl. In that seat, Johnny had no worries about blocking the view of others with his lean, yet imposing upper body. The chairs had padding, and were quite comfortable. Yet another display of the school’s impressive budget.

Though Johnny was incredibly excited about what was to come, he hid it well under his rubbing the doorframe injury. He was not entirely sure how 'excitement' was taken in Japanese culture… For that matter, he did not know what a deadpan, neutral demeanour meant either. He grimaced at the annoying sting and also the inevitable confusion that he knew would only just begin.

His parents mentioned a dedicated translator, would the translator be present to this important assembly? Until he had an answer, Johnny once more opened his little book and continued reading.

"I have wondered
what they see in me
whether they imposed
their dreams on me or
do they make me their illusions
because, I can only be me."
================================






























































His attention was swayed from the floating cherry petals by the echoing announcement from one of the teachers. Silver gray eyes landed on the source to whom he identified as the English Teacher, Araya. It was one of the subject that he excels in which is justified as he had been raised in America for the majority of his life. In his opinion, English is his mother language while Japanese which had been taught to him, but not seriously enough until he came to this country as a second-hand language.

Anyway, what matters right now was the announcement. They were being called to the hall. There was no trouble about that, but he did wonder why they weren't informed beforehand to go there in the first place. It would have save time and even avoid such scenes from a certain Miyamoto Kazuki. Thinking about it, it could possibly be one of the reasons why they were told to stay at the school grounds to minimize the delay so to say, if he would take into account his so-called rival's uncle, the Math teacher, involvement. But, he was just speculating and would not air it out. So, they were all just in his head.

As for the rest of the announcement about helping the lost Juniors, he wasn't sure about that part. It's not like he's completely unwilling. It was more like his presence had finally been noticed by the other students, specially the girls who began to crowd around him. They greeted him with that over-trying voice of theirs and blasted away with questions of how his vacation is or where he went and many more. It was during these moments, he would appreciate to have earplugs.

He looked at them and answered them with one sentence. "What I do or where I go is none of your business. Excuse me." There is the finality in his words which left no room for any debate. It delivered what he wanted a reprieve as the girls looked at him with surprise and apology. He took that moment to walk towards the school hall, but the girls were able to recover from that blunt answer of his and began to follow him again. Somehow, they were more determined than ever. He was really sure that women from Japan are very different. The more he pushed them away, the more they evade his space. They definitely have more screws loose than he anticipated, so he does what he had always done, ignore.

It would be very helpful if the school idol (Aeon) was nearby. The attention on him will be lessened greatly, but he remembered earlier, that guy is with Cassiopeia, a powerful deterrent. That was probably the reason why the girls had shifted their focus on him at the moment. It was because they believed him to be completely unattached which is not true, that's what he believes in truly. Anyway, he tuned them out as he continue his pace towards the appointed destination by the announcement. It was a good thing that they do not block his path, because he really does not like to address any of them. It seemed to only encourage them which is never his intention to begin with.

He could feel their eyes on his figure which was not really hard to look among the people bustling towards the hall. He was very tall which was hard not to see and by far still the tallest within Airdalen. The eyes lingering on him were mostly from the girls, but he could also feel some from the guys looking at him whether by envy or admiration, he could care less. They could take his position anytime. He would even thank them for it. Really, when would they get sick of always looking at him. It would do them no good in anyway. They should focus on themselves than on other people.

Eventually, Ryou was able to arrive at the school hall and quickly picked out a seat at the last row at the right side. It was not because he does not like being at the front or was the irresponsible type looking for a quick getaway. His decision was out of consideration. If he had taken any of the seats in front of him and beyond, someone behind him would definitely suffer from being blocked. His stature would have made sure of that and to avoid that, he took his seat at the farthest row at the farthest corner. There should be no problems for him as he could see and hear well enough even from this position.

Anyway, he waited patiently in his seat as he could hear the girls arguing among themselves who was going to seat next to him, since there is only one chair for that. He closed his eyes briefly and wanted to ignore it, but he knew that it was causing unnecessary noise which was interrupting others who were just quietly bidding their time. He opened his eyes and did not even glance at anyone. He was simply looking forward. "You are bothering everyone. Be quiet or get out." His voice was enough though to relate his annoyance and the seriousness of his words. They were not spoken loudly, but it was enough to cut through the rabble of noise and was quickly followed by silence. The girls hushed up but not before offering their apologies and leaving him alone. Just like that, Ryou crossed his arms over his chest and finally regained his semblance of peace.

|| Current Location ✦ Airdalen Academy ||

Kazuki was able to remove that appalling pink band-aid on his face. There was no way he would be caught with that on his face, even if he has a large gash there. He would rather have the gash be seen. That would add to his many badges than take the risk of being seen so uncool which doesn't match with his determined outlook of himself. It was a good thing that he also has a way with the words when it does count. He had managed to convince the guards that he won't run away anymore, but that didn't mean he would not be escorted to his uncle who was currently at the school hall where everyone else was now heading towards.

The teachers began the announcement as he gotten a good look of the two females who for the sake of all worldly things could not remember the name of. Well, he does have his nicknames for them though. There's the Hysteria girl and the Booby lady. He has that smirk on his face as he passed by them. "Hey, there ladies! I would love some action of that with me." He gave them a wink while one of the guards gave him a bump on the head. "Show some respect Miyamoto!" As a response, Kazuki just rolled his eyes and nonchalantly shrugged his shoulders. "I'm showing them my respect, you know. Come on, don't tell me you wouldn't want to be embraced by those girls? They're hot."

The guards all had red faces whether it was because they were thinking the same rather perverted things or they were annoyed. It was never shown as they only shoved Kazuki to walk faster. "Move it!" As for the Hellion, he couldn't help but chuckle lightly at this. It seemed he made a point and really he does have a mouth that is more tainted than anyone could think of and he's not afraid to showcase every time he could find the opportunity to do so. He caught sight of some of the students looking at him, with those looks as if saying that he is someone who doesn't belong in this elite school. Well, he would agree to that if it means that he isn't one of them who has a stick shove so high up in their a**es.

Others looked at him as sort of icon who can't be tamed and for that he couldn't help but be prouder of his antics than ever. That's why it is not surprising that he also have quite a following that would not be easily ignored when compared to the arrogant piece of sh*t (Aeon) and the man he assigned as his rival (Ryou). He was more approachable and friendly, but more dangeroues than the two combine. Speaking of which, some of the girls greeted him with such enthusiasm as he answered back with a grin. "My my my! Look how stunning you all are. Can't wait to have a bite of you all." His voice oozed with such a hint of risky sexual innuendo which was in pair with his golden eyes that seemed to capture their soul without effort. The girls blushed at this while the guards shook their heads and pushed him to enter the school hall.

"Come on men, it's not my fault they like me." He retorted towards the shoving with his confident smirk. Kazuki was then lead towards the front row without much of a choice as he was forced to take a seat. "Sit down and wait! Hayashi-san will be with you shortly." Kazuki released a big sigh at that and leaned on his chair while his legs were stretched in front of him as he placed his arms behind his head as a sort of cushion. "Let's just get this show on the road already... I do have other appointments to get into." He was not really thrilled to be here or be part of whatever program this school has come up with. Tapping his feet on the floor, he let his eyes look around and directed it to the area where he heard some commotion at the back. His eyes narrowed considerably as he saw his rival (Ryou) who managed to subjugate it with a few words.

"There you are..." Kazuki knew well that the guy is a Killer. He could sense it about Ryou. Someone not meant to be trifle with and that's what excites him, to beat a guy like that. He was about to do something like issuing his challenge when he felt a rather very hot presence before him. His eyes returned at front and he was welcomed by the sight of his uncle who was probably informed of his mischief and about the car. "Hey there!" He greeted him with an innocent smile that the angels would be very proud of. "I guess it's high time you get a new car. You have insurance, right?" Then, his stomach grumbled, reminding him that breakfast was yet to be served. "Oh yeah, you did drag me here so early in the morning. I deserve some credit for that. Do you have something to eat?" Ah yes, he was also the kind that won't find anything wrong with his actions and never apologizes. "I'm starving over here."
