Womanizer, Emotional, Blunt, Sadistic, Cold, T.V Lover, Bad Temper

ᘉαтυяε:
In ways, Jordan can be a lot like Naru, it's mainly why the two get along so well in the first place. But the thing with Jordan is, he has nothing to hide, well almost nothing. Sure in school he is easy going and loud, always speaking his mind and can be very sporty. But outside of school he can be quite the troublesome person. Maybe he is in a Gang? Not yet fully known.

Qυιякs:
● Emotional :
He shows his emotions all the time in school. He'll blush in certain situations, some think he could be a virgin because of it. He's loud whenever he gets the chance to be. And outside of school he can show a pretty bad temper if around certain people.

● Sporty:
His sports tend to get the best of him. He's almost always busy with one thing or another. And is always trying to get Naru to join the Basketball Club because of his height.

● Weight:
He tends to throw his weight around. It's mainly because he always forgets how much bigger than he is compared to the others around him. Not big as in fat, no, actually he is very muscular and well fit.

● Loud:
He has a bad case of the Loudness Blues. Everything he does or says is always heard. Anybody who is anyone would know when Jordan was in the room or was about to come their way. It never fails.


ℓιкεs:

Sports:
For him, sports mean a lot. He loves the energy it gives him and the thrill it comes with. Specially the happiness of winning a game.

Family / Friends :
Most definitely a friend and family man. He loves people and won't shun anyone who tries talking to him. People are his second joyous thing in life.


∂islikes:

Bullies :
He hates to see a kid get Bullies. He always found it bothersome and pointless to pick on someone weaker than themselves. it alway put him in a bad mood to see it.

Laziness:
He's always the up and go type of guy, being lazy is the last thing he needs. Or more like he never finds time for it. Sure he will sleep a lot, but that's only because he is always burning up his energy so fast.


тαℓεηтs:
★ Athletic

★ Fighting Skills

★ Obliviousness


ℱєαяѕ:

Old Age:
The fear of getting old always gets on his mind. Because once old, he'll never get to do the things he can now freely.

Heights:
Sure he is tall, but he won't go more than a foot or two past his normal height. Any higher and he'll freak out like a little kid.

Bugs:
When he was a kid, there use to be this guy who'd always stick some kind of bug down Jordan's shirt. So ever since then bugs have been once of his biggest fears.




" Information on me you ask. Well ladies pull out the measuring tape and the notebook because I have a lot to share."




Tнε σηεs ωнσ мαттεя:

Father: Jordan Mitchals 3rd & Mother: Sally Mitchals

Younger Sister: Jully Mitchals

Image Hιsтσяү:

Jordan has a great family. His dad owns many businesses across the US and Japan. His mother works alongside his father. They get to see each other during Wednesdays so it all worked out. His Younger sister is into Modeling, so it's hard to see her around though she does make it in on Wednesdays, so that's nice. Though, I guess you could say Jordan is mostly home alone, but it never bothers him because all he ends up doing is eating and then sleeping or training. Sometimes whenever, Naru would stop by or he would go over to his place. He was the same as Jordan, left alone a lot, but they both found company in one another once in a while.

It all started when Jordan met Naru for the first time at the hospital. Jordan had broken his rib cage by falling onto the ground too hard after a Basketball Game. As to why Naru was there, he never did find out. But they did talk a lot, almost every day that he was there. This was around the time Jordan was having his breaking point. His mind was in the gutter about being able to play sports again with a broken rib cage. It was Naru who helped him along.

The boy never talked much about himself, but it was good to have someone to rant to and he listened to ever word Jordan said. Even responded to a lot of it. Once Jordan got out of the hospital, him and Naru did their own thing. From staying out late and causing trouble out in the city. It helped get their minds off of things.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Haha. Alright, Alright."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"You've grown."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Haha. Alright, Alright."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



Someone was there.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"I guess I see your point. Sorry."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Jordan, people are looking."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~Meanwhile~~

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Charity time is over. Good. I have enough being a good Samaritan. Now, it's time to play the role I have to be by his side. I just hoped that this school won't be as boring as the others. Well, it might not be already."

Shiori mentioned that someone would like to see her scared. Shin has no reason to doubt that. In his experience, people always want something like that, especially in the kind of world he has been in before. Fear, tricks, and weaknesses are the perfect tool to manipulate someone and then when no use anymore discards them like a used tissue. There are no promises that he won't be doing the same to her at some point. No one could predict the future, but right now, he has no reason to use her fear against her. She was technically a nobody to him, just a person who reminded him something he doesn't like and that's all.

She also claimed not receiving much good deed from others. Well, this is how the world is. Most people couldn't care about anyone. Even if they say they do care, it was more for their own personal satisfaction, to make one's self feel good and at peace. That's just how it is. It was the same for him. He does care strongly for Yukito but behind that affection is his selfish desires that he does recognize, not openly though. His good gesture to her was also to make that annoying feeling of his seeing the tears disappear. So really, he was not going to claim he was being kind, princely, or anything of those sorts. He does things for his own benefit and he would not deny that, unlike anybody else.

His sigh of frustration was taken notice by Shiori as she asked him if something was bothering him along with the surprise that anyone would find her. Well, he wasn't actually banking on finding her or even looking for her in the first place. He just angrily slammed his fists on the door when he recalled that vision of Yukito hugging that no-good brother of his and because of that action of his, he found her. It was just pure coincidence. He wasn't seeing anything deeper than that. Then, the PA buzzed through the school once more. The weather was now calm and lunch was over. It was time for classes which meant for him to finally go to his.

He removed his arms around Shiori and stood from his position. There's no more thunder to scare her. Plus, the tears were gone so, his assistance was not needed anymore. He was truly tall than most of the guys and that was one of his advantages, so to speak. In terms of of his clothes, he wasn't that mindful as they were not in a disarray. Frankly speaking, he looks good no matter what he wears. It was one of his distinctive charismas in being a model and why he was in the top. She then apologized about him not being able to eat. That was no problem. He wasn't hungry. "It's fine. I'm not hungry anyway." She then bid her goodbye as she needs to get to class. That reminds him; he had to do that as well. "Okay, no problem. See ya around." He replied casually as she waved at him and left.

As for him, he forgot his papers at the principal's office. He would need to get it to know which classroom he is exactly. It's not like he had to worry about being late. He was exempted from that being a newcomer and all. Speaking of which, there were those other two who had the same status as him. He soon returned to the office where the secretary gingerly handed his school papers to him. He gave a small smile of thanks and went off. He wasn't the type to flirt or to mindlessly showcase his assets. He was the kind to reserve that for someone special. So, he simply did what should be considered polite and distinctively acceptable in relation to manners.

Leaving the office, he looked at his papers. It seemed he would be attending Class 3-A. He managed to find it and by that time, the teacher who was going to attend was there as well. It was an elderly woman who looked at him from top to bottom. He felt like a merchandise of sorts as the teacher asked who he is. In response, he simply handed his school papers and the teacher recognized that he was a new student. "Stay there." That was rather gruff and brief. Shin was betting the woman must be still single which explains her rather grumpy demeanor. Anyway, the teacher entered the classroom and silenced everyone. It seemed that there were a few empty chairs with Tsubasa and Iyazaki being absent. This made her raised an eyebrow. "Okay, get it together. You'll be receiving a new classmate for this year." She announced as she gestured for Shin who was still out the door to enter. He did so and the students especially the girls appeared to have gained a new candy. The guys were wide-eyed at his physique and height which made him the tallest in the entire school. It also helps that he was quite the looker, an elite without doubt.

"Introduce yourself." The teacher told him. He wasted little time. "Shin Ogawa, nice to meet you all." After saying that, he offered a polite smile, a slight upturned from the corner of his lips. The girls of the class saw that as a sign to fall in love with him immediately. Actually, they squealed in delight and was about to bombard him with questions. "Silence all of you! Take your seat Ogawa-san." He nodded and began to look for any empty chairs, but before he can a brave and very curious female classmate took the chance to ask even if it would gain the wrath of their teacher. "Uhm, Ogawa-kun! Are---are--are you the top model EDGE?" The class heard the question and looked at Shin with surprise and an answer they seemed already aware of. Shin simply smiled at that and placed an index finger on his lips. "Keep it a secret, okay?" Then, he gave a playful wink which obviously was deadly as the girl fainted on the spot.

He was not overly shocked by that and simply went to find his seat as other classmates were already there showing concern. Shin finally found one and a rather familiar face. "It's seems we keep bumping to each other huh, Shiori-san." He stated as he took the seat beside her while placing his chin on his hand with his elbow propped on the desk. "I guess we're classmates, I'll be in your care from now on then." He said with calmness and his eyes held certain interest as he find the situation mildly amusing. But that is all. It is yet again just a coincidence. At the same time, it seemed that another celebrity was attending the school.

It seemed that Sakura liked her food. That made Aina happy for it was good to see other people smile. Of course, he was unaware about the motives behind such acts. But, she was the kind who takes everything presented to her at face value. It was not in her doubt or to second-guess anyone. "I am glad you liked it." She noted with a happy tone. Completely unaware of the reasoning behind the gesture, she took it as a simple act of friendliness. It was soon followed by simple chatter about various things, but most of it was about her. They were curious about her which was a normal thing. She did not mind answering them to the best of her abilities but, she did take note to write it down on her journal to not forget.

As for her commentary about not finding her class, she tried to recall the classroom she had been assigned to. "My class is 3-A." She answered and looked at them curiously. "Do you know where it is located?" That was her question which was interrupted by the torrential rain. She looked at the window with a sad countenance. In that regard, she voiced out her desire for the weather to calm down. This seemed to be agreed upon by the three girls. It made her glad to see that she had met nice people. This day was getting better than better and more than that, the cloud lightened up as the rays of the sun began to push through, illuminating the scenery itself.

This was announced through the PA system which made her clap in gladness. "My the weather did clear up. This is wonderful." She was not concerned about lunch being over or it was time for them to go to their proper classes. Her interest was attached to the fact the people would not be having a hard time travelling the roads. This was truly a beautiful thing. But, she was taken out her delighted trance when Sakura told them that they should go to their classes unless, they wanted to go to detention. That was something she would not like to experience on the first day of her attendance. It was a good thing that she was done with her meal. "Gochisousama deshita." She said with gentleness as she began keeping her bento. It was something that her grandmother would always remind her to do. Once that was done, she stood from her seat in time when Sakura gestured for her, Rin, and Michiru to follow her.

Aina followed and simply hoped that her classroom would be along the way. She was aware that the teacher would not find fault in her being tardy as it was her first day and being a new student. Still, she did not want to cause any form of trouble on anyone. But, she is rather concerned if she could recall the layout how to reach her room. The best way would be for her was to put it down on her journal as a reminder. She would be having a lot of things to write about which brought her joy but at the same time sadness. It was because she would have to do this every day just to recall, for her own mind could not do that anymore. This gave her a lonely demeanor but only for a moment. She had decided to live her life as best as she could through one page at a time.

They continued to walk and when they stopped at a classroom, she noticed it to be the one she belonged to. She glanced at the three girls with a smile. "It seemed that we are classmates. This is nice." It was her sincere thought and feeling. She was never duplicitous and what she says is never covered by anything malicious or deceiving intentions. After saying that, she noticed that the class was rather lively. It made her wonder what was going on. That was when the elderly female teacher took notice of their presence or more of, her presence. The teacher's eyes narrowed distinctively at her. This was because she was an unknown face and what that is rather rare and exotic. Foreign in every sense. "Are you new here?" Believing she was the one being asked, she nodded her head. "Yes, I ---" She was immediately cut off as the teacher yelled at the class. "Quiet! Stop all your yammering about Ogawa-san! We have another new student!"

The rather harsh reprimand surprised Aina as she blinked her eyes owlishly. It would seem that there was a new student as well who is called Ogawa. Those were not the names of the two new students she heard at the principal's office earlier. Anyway, she snapped to attention when the teacher gestured with her hand for Aina to enter. She did what was asked. From her very entrance, the entire class went into complete silent. It was like a holy spirit descended to the room. She was quite the vision and her movements were elegant without the hint of trying. It was truly natural. "Papers and introduce yourself." She handed her documents, but before she does so. "Excuse me Madame, but I would suggest that you do not shout too much. It would not be good for your vocal chords. It would be sad if anything happened to your voice." The said teacher was taken aback by her words and was about to retort angrily, but the sincere gaze and small smile on Aina's face deterred her. Taking a deep breath, she shook her head and for the first time, the class was stunned. "Go ahead. Introduce yourself."

She nodded happily and then faced the class. It was clear as day that everyone was in amazement of the dark-skinned female before them. It was not long ago that the girls were smitten by a man so comparable to that of Adonis and now it was the boys who are entangled by the angelic beauty. "Good day. My name is Aina Malik. It is my pleasure meeting everyone. I hope we can all be friends." She said with a warm and sincere tone which was ended with a smile so brilliant and making her more radiant than the rising sun. After a few minutes, the class burst into a plethora of many questions about who she is. She was rather surprised by the enthusiastic greeting and could not answer their inquiries as they spoken so fast. The teacher subdued them with a mere slam of her hand on the desk and a glare. "Go and sit down Malik-san. Take the seat in front of Iyazaki-san. The one there." It was a good thing the teacher pointed the chair because Aina has no idea who was Iyazaki. "Thank you very much."

Taking her seat, Aina took out the needed things for studying. Eyes were still looking at her while the other girls vying for the attention seethed in envy. But, this was of course oblivious for the foreign student. She was ready to begin class and glad to know three girls which she considers as her friends. Unaware, that fate has a different path for her than she had hoped it to be.

"Stay there."

Shiori's eyes embodied complete shock as Shin entered the classroom. He was going to be her classmate?! This was so embarrassing. She did her best to hold it together, but her mind immediately turned to the embrace they shared earlier and caused her heart to skip a beat.

Riko turned around to stared at Shiori, her dark eyes worried as she saw Shiori's reaction, "Do you know him, Shi-chan?" She asked in a hushed whisper. Riko looked a lot like Shiori, they just kept their bangs cut in opposing fashions and styled their hair differently. If they styled their hair the same way the only obvious difference would be Riko's sheer lack of breasts.

"N-no I've never seen him before." Her tone was insistent and harsh, but also quiet enough so no one else but Mimi and Riko would hear. Riko turned around in her seat, back facing Shiori, though she could feel the doubt pouring from Riko's pores. Her friend didn't believe her at all... Why should she? It was a total lie.. She looked over to the other side of the room and noticed that Sakura, Rin, Michiru, Jordan, and Narueki were all late, though she assumed that Narukei was absent due to Yukito being sick.. Jordan was probably off being a pig..

"Okay, get it together. You'll be receiving a new classmate for this year."

Suddenly she felt so alone in the room. She wanted to change this year, but she was being thrown so many curve balls that she couldn't stand it. First Narukei, then Sakura.. Now this? She felt like she was suffocating under all of the pressure. How was she supposed to thrive under all this pain, embarrassment, and animosity? It felt like she was being crushed under all of these expectations. Narukei expected her to pretend like nothing was wrong, Yukito wanted her to fight back, Nemui wanted her to succeed in school, her coach wanted her to dominate in archery competitions and her heart wanted to mend.. She felt like she was sinking in a bottomless lake, drowning, yet clinging to her last thread of life.. It was painful... She didn't cry, because it wasn't scary, but also because she was in a room full of people that she didn't trust to see her in a weak state.

Unlike the rest of the class she wasn't focused on Shin, at least not anymore. She was clenching at the left side of her blazer, right where her heart would be. There was piercing pain, she couldn't ignore it.. yet no one noticed either. She immediately rested her head on her desk, not wanting anyone to figure it out anyway. She could handle a panic attack, she was used to this pain. She just had to focus on her breathing, count, relax..

"Introduce yourself."

The words were muffled, like she'd actually dunked herself underwater, but she did make them out.

"Shin Ogawa, nice to meet you all."

She heard his voice, the annoying sound that the girls made afterwards, it was worse than nails on a chalkboard, yet none of them cared. They were young, infatuated, and very naïve.. They didn't know heartache. They didn't experience being dumped like she had.. They didn't know what was in store for them.. yet she prayed that they would never have to find out. She prayed that no one would have to feel the pain she felt in her chest.. No one deserved it, no one deserved to constantly doubt themselves, to be afraid of intimacy, no one deserved to feel like the only way to remain safe was to shut everyone away and protect their heart.

"Silence all of you! Take your seat Ogawa-san."

"Uhm, Ogawa-kun! Are---are--are you the top model EDGE?" "

Suddenly she snapped out of her anxiety and slowly say up, looking at Shin. Not in the same way as the other girls, no, it was innocently. She finally realized where she knew him from!

"Keep it a secret, okay?"

The girl who asked the question fainted, and an irritated expression formed on Shiori's face. He was good looking, but wasn't that a bit ridiculous?

"It's seems we keep bumping to each other huh, Shiori-san."

She could feel Riko's glare and Mimi's curiosity, but she ignored both and responded with an energetic smile, "I guess so, just don't mistake me for one of them." She replied with a roll of her eyes, jabbing her thumb in the direction of the fan club. After making her point clear, Shiori stuck her tongue out at him. She wasn't fawning, she wasn't crushing.. She wasn't sure how to do things like that anymore.. Or maybe Yukito was right, perhaps she wasn't over Narukei? Just the though caused her pain. How could she still feel something for a prick like that? Someone who only cared about himself and treated women as if they were easily disposable.. She was the worst..

"I guess we're classmates, I'll be in your care from now on then."

"A-are you messing with me?" She replied back with a slightly surprised expression, but it was accompanied with a childish pout. Then she realized where she'd seen him before, "S-Shizuka Santioa! Have you worked with her before?" She wasn't sure if he would answer, but it didn't matter. She definitely remembered him. Her and Nemui actually got to go to work with their mother that summer. She didn't remember at first because she was scared at the time they met, but there was no mistaking it now.

She honestly could have began modeling or even acting with her mother if she chose, but her and Nemui both promptly refused the proposal. Nemui because she hated the attention and the form fitting clothes, but Shiori loved all of that.. Her mother was her idol, and yet now she felt terrified of her past dream. There was no way she was going to let pictures of her go international. She wasn't physically fit enough yet and she didn't feel comfortable in her own skin anymore, and she doubted she ever would again. This is why she chose a mediocre job in a mediocre town.. No one would remember her and pictures were not allowed at the café.

Two more new students came in, Aina Malik and Ren Katsukawa, but her attention was shot. She didn't even notice the nickname Ren picked out for her. The rest of the day she was somewhat spaced out in her own thoughts, but then the bell rang and school was over.

---- After school ----


She didn't have practice today so Shiori gathered her things quietly. Her friends already left due to club activities and Nemui sent her a text that she would be walking home with a friend she made today.. So Shiori would be on her own, "Sayonara, Sensei!" And she went to the office and apologized to the principal, weaseling her way out of detention, though she doubted she would be so lucky next time.

Shiori walked through the halls and made it outside. The sky was no longer angry, but it was still rather pale and moody. She began walking home, earphones in her ears. She was not looking forward to returning to Sakura Square.. but Yukito was sick... and Narukei said he was spending a week with some woman, someone would have to watch the ill boy.. At least until she was forced to leave for work. The world around her was so.. dull. It was so monochrome.. She wanted to see a colorful world, yet all she saw was shades of gray. She hated feeling like this.

"The day is over. It's time for me to enter the so-called glamorous world. But, I should remind that I only do such things for one thing and one thing only. So, don't expect too much."

Shiori indicated that she was not like the girls squealing in excitement and delight that even one of them fainted in the process. She rolled her eyes and stuck out her tongue to him. It was rather unladylike in so many ways, but he doesn't mind. It wasn't his place to remind her of manners and etiquette. In addition, he could care less about her preferences. "Good to know." He answered with a casual air whether he was serious about it or not. That was left in vague, but based on their interaction, he had yet to tell her any sort of lie. It's a good thing to know that there would be girls that would steer out of his way, but those are the kinds he should be worried about isn't it? It would be a good thing if they latched themselves to him as it would make things far easier for him. In the end, he was used on how to treat this kind of situations.

"Messing, you say?" One of his perfect eyebrow was raised. He fully faced her this time as he turned his body towards her. "Does it feel that way? Because, you would know if I'm messing with you. I assure you." His expression did not betray anything of his intentions not even his tone which was delivered in a manner similar to that of used in small nonsensical talks. There was no wink but a simple tilt of his side to the side. He was rather a fine specimen for a man. He was someone who could be both of a prince, the boy next door, the bad boy, and it was no denying that he was dastardly handsome. There's no doubt why he became a model and had many admirers.

It was then Shiori asked him about working with Shizuka Santioa. It seemed his initial conclusion was not far-off base. "I have. Why don't you say hi from me to your mother?" He noted with his usual calmness and unadulterated conversation without any kind of underhanded meaning and yet, he seemed to know more than he lets on. He then properly positioned his body to face the front. It seemed there were new students, just like him. He does remember seeing two earlier at the office. A girl and a boy, but this one was someone he hadn't seen earlier. He could actually understand why the boys were like dogs in heat. The dark-skinned girl was an exotic sight and a beautiful one at that. She also seemed to have a rather nice personality as much as he could tell from his position, this Aina Malik as she introduced herself.

But his interests only stayed there, there was nothing more to that. Then, there was the new male student, Ren Katsukawa, he had seen before. It seemed they were in the same class. The guy already made an impact on the females with that seemingly bad boy vibe. It seemed that this one does not shy away from flirting. That reminds him of someone which lead to the slight lifting of his lips into that of a small yet fleeting smile. It has warmth and a degree of affection. Some of the girls who had seen it blushed at sight for it was definitely different from seeing it on a picture. But as soon as that expression came, it also disappeared.

In any case, it seemed he would have to make do with the classes. But, he is worried about Yukito. The weather had calmed down for a good portion. Still, he doesn't trust that brother in regards of taking care the younger boy. Because in the end of the day, blood is not the only thing which could determine affection and care. There are even times that blood is no better than water. His eyes held a tint of coldness at that. He really doesn't like that brother even more when he actually met the guy. Speaking of which, he would have to make sure that Yukito's work is not compromised though; he knew that Haruko would handle it. Still, it would not hurt to be a helping hand on that matter. He would get to it after school and frankly speaking, he wanted the classes to be over. It was rather boring to him and the thought that Yukito is sick also pops on his head constantly.

The only reason he did return to school was for him. Nothing else worthy of consideration on that matter.

Then, school has surely come to an end. He was up and about even when people began to gather around him. They wanted to be acquainted with him and even others who wanted to be a special someone to him. There were even questions if he was going to the dance. It seemed to be a social event for the school. However, that was not going to happen. He simply turned their advances away in a manner that was not easily obvious, specifically adding an air of mystery per say. There was still some work he needed to do and to straighten out some things for Yukito. It seemed that the brother took Yukito home. Well, that was a good thing since the boy needed to rest. But, he could not help but be a bit irritated. It was because the one who did it was the brother. Shin wanted to be the one who does so. It was really aggravating.

Anyway, he was able to get out of the school and saw that the company's car was already waiting at front. He got in and began to dial a number. The line was soon answered. "Hey Haruko." The female immediately rained down on him with a barrel of complaints. He simply leaned on his seat and motioned for the driver to move. The man already knew where to go and so they did. "I see. He texted. Don't worry, I'll make something up, okay? It's fine." Just like that, his day was mostly eventful but something he would also describe as a bit wasteful as he wasn't able to talk to Yukito that much.

"What truly a spectacular day it has been. I have met new and wonderful friends. I truly hoped that this day would not come to an end. But, it is a vain one isn't it?"

Aina looked behind her and saw Sakura, Rin, and Michiru. She smiled at them warmly. It was really a good thing that she has people that she is familiar with. After that, she looked in front of her. The teacher announced that there was another new student. She was rather excited to know since, it meant that she wasn't the only one new. But seeing the student made her rather happy, it was the one she had saw at the office earlier. He seemed to be a friendly person especially to the girls when he made his introductions. That was very nice of him. It would also appear that he will be sitting beside her. She smiled happily with the lingering sense of politeness. "It is nice to see you again, Katsukawa-san." She remembered what Rin told her about calling someone. She hoped that was doing the right thing to do. "I have yet to properly introduce myself. I am Aina Malik." She cheerfully introduced herself.

She then looked at the direction where Ren called someone a fiery girl. It made her curious and she recognized her as the one running out of the principal's office before and the other student who was also new like her was also one of those running out. It did made her wonder if something terrible had happened, but seeing them fine, meant that it was not as terrible as she had imagined. That was a wonderful thing. She released a relieved sigh and then gave a polite nod as a greeting. It was only proper as far as she knows. She then focused on the lessons ahead. It was a nice feeling really to be here in a classroom with people who are the same age as hers. Furthermore, she was now having friends. It was really a good feeling. There was a momentary lull in the classroom and she took that moment to take out her journal. She then began to write on it, every detail that had happened to her up to now. She even wrote descriptions of the people she had met. It would be troublesome if these people approached her and she has no idea who they really are. She would need to make it a little less strange and unknown to her, even for a bit.

Once she was done, she kept her journal and wondered what things she would be able to learn. She looked out the window and somehow, her mind began to be filled with dreams worthy that of fairy tales. She was only taken back when the teacher called her attention in regards to a lesson. She stood from her chair and answered it to best as she could. The day continued like that and soon, it was time for her to return home. She still remembered how she came to the school, so she will just have to retrace her steps. As for club activities, she believed it would not be wise for her to have those. She was yet uncertain how she would fare with being in school. She wanted to take it a small step at a time.

It made her wonder what kind of day would be waiting for her. This also brought her a great sense of dread. The fear so crippling that she doesn't want to close her eyes and give herself to the scenery of her dreams. It is because tomorrow... will certainly be a new day for her in the most literal sense. She dies... every time she sleeps and it scares her very much.
