July 13th: Monday around 7:20 am ------------
"Come on, Suzu! I want to sit down already." Yuri whined. It had been an earlier morning that Monday than normal. She felt exhausted and wanted to use the extra time they had to lay her head down in her arms and close her eyes before everyone else came and got too noisy.
Yuri rolled her eyes and stopped at the classroom double doors, opening them up. It seemed like Sensei wasn't there or had stepped out. "Suzuuuu!" She called out to her sister again and shook her head as she went to her desk and put her bag down. "Now who did she stop to talk?" She muttered and sat down. She let out a soft sigh of relief as she brought her arms up, folding them together and finally laid her head down.
That simple action was a godsend to Yuri; she moved one hand out, fixing her hair and headband before closing her eyes.
Kae walked in yawning quietly. His mother had made him get up earlier today, she had an appointment with her solicitor or something. He didn't really know. All he did know was that he had to get up earlier as a result.
Entering 1-C he looked over and only saw a head of pink hair collapsed on her desk. He smiled slightly, moving over to sit at his desk next to Yuri's and straightened his shirt. He was wearing the girl's uniform today, and his skirt rode up as he sat down. He reached a hand up to ruffle his hair before looking back at Yuri.
He reached over to pat her head lightly, smiling, "Good morning Yuri-Chan~" Reaching into his bag he pulled out a small pot of Vanilla Yan Yan (It was all he had for breakfast!) and pealed off the foil top, tapping her shoulder, "Would you like to share?"
"Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots."

Suzu had found Che the minute they walked in. She had wanted to tell him about the new epee she had bought and planned to use for practice today. She was excited. No more using the school equipment. Unfortunately, her excitement was short-lived when her sister started complaining. Suzu rolled her eyes. For technically being the oldest, her twin certainly acted like a child.
"Aneki, you don't need me to escort you to the classroom," she pointed out. She turned back to continue her conversation with Che when Yuri continued her whining. "Ugh, alright. Che-kun, I'll see you at practice later." She waved and followed her sister into the classroom.
She felt a little bad. She knew why Yuri was tired. Suzu had been spending more and more time with her idol activities than at home. Yuri was picking up the slack with their siblings, but Suzu had found something she loved....and if she told Yuri...she sighed. Che had urged her to be honest with her family, but there was still that worry. Would they be angry with her? Fame had turned their mother into an absent part of their lives. Maybe she should skip work after practice and go straight home...but they'd been trying to land this TV spot for a while. Her Producer would freak if she ditched.
"Good morning, Kae-kun," she greeted Kae with a smile.

Yuri pouted. Is it so bad that I want my sister who's been disappearing to sit and talk to me while I just lay my head down? She thought to herself when Suzu was telling her that she didn't need to accompany her. Her thoughts were running rampant again in her mind:
Yuri wanted Suzu to go out and have fun, to do whatever she wanted to do. Yuri was the older sister! She had to take care of things and be a good big sister for not only Suzu, even if it was only by a few minutes, but for Saboten and Hinagiku as well! Being the oldest was not easy at all. Yet...she felt like she needed...no deserved a good day to herself, to sit and relax, sleep in or go see her own friends without the little ones tagging along. Did that make her rude for thinking that? She knew that she could leave Saboten and Hinagiku with the caretakers when their father was busy at the bento shop but...well after what she and Suzu went through, completely leaving them in the caretakers hands were out of the question. That was one thing that she and Suzu agreed on. Yet...something kept nagging Yuri in the back of her mind and she couldn't pinpoint it at all.
She was brought out of her somewhat troubling thoughts when she felt a light tap on the top of her head. That normally meant one person...
"Oh, good morning, Kae-chan!" She said brightly despite the tiredness that she felt. When Kae tapped her shoulder offering her one of his Yan-Yan's she nodded. "Ah, I'll only take one though, thank you. I did eat this morning with my family." She said looking to Suzu when she finally came in. "Hey, Suzu. Sorry that I didn't get to talk to you last night when you came home. Did everything you needed to get done, work out for you?" She asked. She had to make sure that her sister was alright and normally it was when she did get home though Yuri had fallen asleep early the previous night.
Kae shifted slightly at the growing atmosphere of the room, seemingly set off by the twins. Suzu's constant fidgeting and nervous looking around didn't feel quite right. She seemed... very preoccupied with something or other but it didn't seem like she was overly eager to talk about it.
Yuri, on the other hand, just looked exhausted. Light circled under her eyes betrayed it clearly and Kae looked between the two sisters, brow creasing as he looked between them. They were both keeping something from each other... Yuri seemed to be falling apart at the seams by how tired she looked and Suzu clearly had something on her mind.
He was quiet, dipping the biscuit stick in the vanilla dip and handing it to Yuri and then doing the same again and handing one to Suzu before taking one for himself. He was quiet for a minute, looking between the twins as they talked. Eventually when the conversation petered off he reached over to pat Yuri's head again.
"Hey Yu-Chan, if you need to talk to someone, you can talk to me, okay?"
"Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots."

Suzu stared at Yuri a moment. "Ah...it's fine. I was just taking care of some stuff for the Fencing Club," she said, a nervous smile on her face. She noticed Kae was offering her a yam-yam, so she took it.
"Thanks, Kae-kun!" she said with a smile. Her eyes darted to her sister a moment as she took a bite. Yuri looked exhausted and Suzu knew why. She wasn't home much anymore. She'd been getting more and more gigs, with the upcoming photoshoot and the constant television and live appearances. The agency was as busy as ever, expecially with Angel Wings getting so popular.
"Didn't you say you had Angel Wings' new album, Aneki? Do they have any good new songs? I'm not big on idols, but Che-kun is."

"Ahhh okay," Yuri said nodding her head lightly. "I didn't know it was for Fencing." She commented before she heard Kae speaking to her. She smiled kindly at her friend. "I know; thank you, Kae-chan."
"Angel Wings?" That peeked her interest again, lifting her head up and smiled. "I personally like most of the songs. They're very different but very fun to listen to. We were listening to the album last night actually! I had Saboten and Hinagiku doing a little fashion show with me and we were playing their album." She told Suzu and Kae, bringing out her phone to show them a few pictures.
Kae smiled brightly, leaning back and crossing his legs, hitching his skirt down again before he started eating his biscuits again.
When the twins started talking about Idols again he looked up, listening mostly in silence as he nibbled at the biscuits quietly. He'd heard of Angel Wings. He didn't quite get it... but they were good! They had a nice sound!
He leaned forward, eyes blooming when he saw the pictures and he leaned back grinning widely, "Aww! They look so cute! You look like you're having fun!" He sat up straight again and patted his knees, "I've listened to some of Angel Wing's stuff but not a lot!" He was quiet for a minute before he grabbed his phone, "B-But I do know Peachy! They've just debuted!" He put one of their songs on play, smiling brightly, "They're so cute! They're both hapa! At least Ririn's hapa... I think Yuka's a quarter... Never mind! They're really cute! And they sing really well!"
"Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots."
Hana opened the double doors of the opulent classroom and walked across to the teacher's desk, not particularly trying not to draw attention to himself but succeeding anyway. Years of social isolation combined with his generally unassuming attitude and unmemorable fashion sense contributed to his overall lack of presence. Again today he was decked out entirely in solid black, a personal favorite of his. He looked around at the current occupants of the room. Only three of his students were present: Min and the Murasaki twins. It was a larger fraction of class 1-C than one might think, to look at the grossly unnecessary multitude of desks and chairs in the room. The three of them were in the midst of their own conversation. Oh, he would be able to command their attention well enough when the time came, by breaking out his loud and clear "teacher voice". But for now, he was content to sit down, fix his gaze at nothing in particular, and engage in his favorite pre-class activity: listening in.
Not for any sort of interest in what they were talking about, though. They seemed to be talking about idols, and while Hana did harbor an inexplicable attachment to idols of the virtual persuasion, he was content to mostly ignore the real life industry for a number of reasons. What he was interested in was what he could learn about his students, just by listening to them talk. He often made a point of arriving at his classrooms as early as possible or staying late at the end of the day for the express purpose of listening to his students converse among themselves in their free time, and he had learned a great deal about them in doing so. Whether any of that information would be useful in creating his math lectures was a matter of random chance, but the practice with profiling in general certainly couldn't hurt.
Take Shiroyuri Murasaki, for instance. She was a sweet talker to whom giving compliments came easily, no doubt a byproduct of her serving as a member of the hostess club. Also, it was no secret she was short, but she did seem particularly self-conscious about her height. Hana could scarcely recall a day when she hadn't shown up to class in some kind of heels, for one thing. For another thing, the few times he had seen her in stocking or bare feet at the gym and such, he noticed she seemed to be patently paying more attention to keeping a straight posture; more so than necessary. Possibly more irritable as well, or maybe that was just his imagination. Certainly neither was the case now with her slumped over her desk, talking animatedly with her classmates despite looking hardly half-awake. He supposed she thanked her lucky stars that their Western mansion of a school building distinctly lacked a concept of "inside shoes".
If there was one thing that this girl was all about though, it was fashion. She talked about it quite often and was a member of the fashion club, which Hana thought was great that she had such an engaging hobby. However, she was extremely judgmental, evidently considering hers to be the final word on EVERYTHING FOREVER when it came to fashion. To the point where Hana didn't consider it a stretch to imagine her regarding someone whose dress didn't agree with her sensibilities the same way she might regard a homeless war orphan...or a serial killer. Well I, for one, don't care how good you think you dress; when you're my student in my class, the only thing that matters is how good you are at math, Hana thought to himself. He hadn't gathered a whole lot of data on her yet, but for the time being all indications were that math was...not her favorite subject, at least. Already he had spent some time considering ways he could help her excel in his class. He knew, for example, that careful use of the color pink could direct her attention effectively, and he had stocked up on pink pens and highlighters for grading her papers. He had also made a mental note to, when teaching equations, proofs, and the like, emphasize qualities she'd be likely to find aesthetically pleasing as a fashionista if he could hold her attention long enough for her to see them. The elegance of an algorithm here, the symmetry of an equation there...
He took a glance down at his trusty clipboard. Class 1-C's roster sheet was on the top of the stack, and Shiroyuri's name was marked with a trio of small diamonds. Hana was grateful he had been alone in the faculty office the first time he'd thought of Rarity in a certain My Little Pony episode and compared her to Shiroyuri. He could only imagine how she'd react if he ever dared to turn the "fashion show of math" into an actual class project.
Rapid foot steps were heard echoing down the hall as one Kai Ohime dashed down towards her classroom. Her breathing was slightly labored, but not much; cheerleading and gymnastics kept her in decent shape. But still, with her heavy backpack and the heels she was wearing, running wasnt entirely easy.
Her yellow uniform dress billowed out behind her as she ran, and finally grabbed hold of the door handle and pulled it open, stumbling inside with her long ponytail trailing behind her, the ribbon tied in it sloppily done and loose, like it was about to fall out.
As soon as she was inside the classroom, the bell rang signaling the start of class. She pressed a hand against her chest for a moment, before she broke out in her signature smile. "Hi, everyone!" She waved energetically, seemingly unaware of how disheveled her appearance actually looked.
She walked over to her desk and pulled out her notebook, which was filled with scribbles and notes from her upcoming math class, and the assignment that she had finished for today, and the assignments that were suppossed to have been done a few days from then; completely done. it was fairly normal for her, to be able to finish multiple assignments ahead of time. She stood back up, walking up to Hana. "Ohayo- Gozaimasu, Uta- Sensei!" She said with a bright smile, holding out the papers. "here, I have the homework done for today. And Theres the next assignment too; I had a lot of free time so I figured, why not?" She giggled, and once he had taken her homework turning with a wave and running off to Yuri.
"Yuri- chaaaan!" She said. "I practiced the new gymnastics routine yesterday, and I think I've got it down! And I- Hey, you dont look so good. Are you feeling alright?" She frowned and placed a hand on Yuris forehead.
Dominic wasn't very happy, although that hardly made much of a change from usual. Starting at new schools was hard, and it was difficult and it often required a greater level of effort than he was prepared to put in. Which, admittedly, was kind of low to start with. Especially starting school in a new country. Going to school in Canada had been hard enough and he honestly didn't see how going to school in Japan would be any different. Other than possibly having to translate every single sentence for his sister. He didn't know how good her Japanese was at this point. Either way, he didn't hold out much hope.
The meeting with the chairman and headmaster had taken such a long time, the chairman had seemed a bit too overly happy for Dominic's tastes. The headmaster had seemed a little more calm though. He was grateful for that. Now they'd been sent on their merry way to one of the classrooms. Apparently they were supposed to be in 1-C. Dominic didn't expect any less, they were new students and Japanese wasn't their first language, he'd been prepared to be in a low class. Hopefully next year he'd be moved up to B or maybe even A class. But then again, It didn't really matter.
He looked down at the map that was supposed to help them around the school and eventually they reached the classroom. The hallways were pretty much empty now, the bell having already rung when they were with the chairman. Looking over at Anna, he took the initiative for once and pulled open the door. However he wasn't quite ready for the sight that he found.
Pink hair? Blue hair? Light brown? Was this class strictly reserved for main characters? When had he made the transition from the real world to an anime? Were they going to go and have lunch on the roof later or eat somewhere else reserved strictly for main characters?
Blinking, he looked around the class still slightly surprised before his eyes came to rest on the man at the front of the classroom that he assumed was going to be their homeroom teacher. He was a little shorter than Dominic but he frowned, looking ahead at his sister to do the introductions like she usually did. He stuck his hands in his pockets, looking away and towards a window.
"If you don't understand my silence, how will you understand my words?"
The look on Dominic face told a story that Anna knew all to good. They was starting a new school and that meant they was going to have to make new friends and be social which Anna was great at but Dominic was a whole other story. It was a good thing his wonderful pretty big sister was by his side to help! Anna wasn't paying the chairman and headmaster any mind in the meeting she was to busy posting her selfie on instergram for her followers to like and enjoy. The only time she looked up was when they sent to go find their new classroom. Looking over her brother shoulder at the map she saw that they was in 1-C. A unpleased look came to her face as thought about them being in a low grade class. They was way more smarter then this bull! But never the less it was just how japanese schools did with their new students she guess.
Once their classroom was found Anna nudged Dominic to open the door which to her surprised he really did. Maybe going to a new school was going to be good for them. As the door slide open and they walked in Anna took that thought back. THERE WAS SO MANY COLORS FOR HAIR! Oh that light brown one was pretty though! She couldn't help but think how that color would look on her,who was she kidding it would look great on her everything else did. Everything but the color green.
As her eyes looked toward the front they fall on a man that she would guess was their teacher. Anna turned up her nose as she stared at him. He didn't even look like he should be a teacher and god would it kill this guy to wear something that a bit of color in it!? All that black was washing out this poor fool skin tone. Rolling her eyes she started off toward the misguided dress man. "Hello Mr. Uta I'm Anna and this is my brother Dominic we are your new students the Wong twins." She told him as she held on to her bothers arm.
"Beauty and Brains. You can't beat a Winning Combination."

Suzu's eyes lifted to Uta-sensei as he entered the room. He always threw her off when he did that. Suzu knew she didn't have to get the class up to say good morning and bow right away, but other teachers didn't usually show up before then. Suzu wrinkled her nose and turned back to Kae and her sister. Suzu admired her senpai. Evie's unit was amazing and Suzu admired how outgoing Evie was. She wished she could be like that.
"Aneki's more well-versed in the world of idols than I am," she said, dismissively. "I only know what I know through her. Our room is covered in Phantom Song's posters. I could recite her songs backwards with how often Aneki listens to her." Suzu laughed a little and shrugged.
Her eyes darted to the newcomers. New students? She remembered vaguely that it had been mentioned this morning. As a member of student council, she was usually informed of these things....and as class representative, it was her job to make sure the students were welcomed. She couldnt help but feel her cheeks turn pink.
With her mask, Suzu was always outgoing and courageous, but regular Suzu was shy. "I should go welcome them," she said to her sister and Kae, excused herself, and walked over to the two new students. She waited for Uta-sensei to be finished speaking with them before she introduced herself.
"Hi, there! I'm Suzu Murasaki, class rep. If you need anything, let me know. I can also show you around the school during break, if you'd like."
Post by Shiroyuri 'Yuri' Murasaki on Aug 15, 2015 15:43:31 GMT
Yuri smiled brightly when she heard Kae talk about how cute her siblings were; it was one thing she took a lot of pride in. They always looked good either in hair or in outfits, even when she dressed them up to get dirty they still looked good. "Peachy aren't bad either in truth...I've listened to their songs as well." She said thoughtfully before more people started to enter the room. "Hey...I don't play the same ones over and over in a row at least...I switch albums before going back." She said defensively against her sister's words.
Well, there went her chance to rest this morning...plus talks about Idols with Kae-chan were always fun! Yuri didn't like missing out on them at all.
This first person to enter room after them was Uta-sensei. Yuri didn't really feel anyway towards their Math and Homeroom teacher. He was a little too quiet to be a teacher or so she thought on first glance when they met him but he had proved that wrong. Despite being quiet, he was a good teacher with funny yet little quirks that helped people out in his class. Though just because his ideas and quirks could be seen as good ways, that didn't change Yuri's thoughts on math. Good lord, she hated math so much unless she was using it to sew a new outfit together.
Next up to the homeroom was Kai, the cute, adorable little bundle of energy that she was. Yuri couldn't stop the smile at seeing her friend and fellow Hostess. She listened about to speak before Kai had her hand on Yuri's forehead. Yuri couldn't help but laugh before Suzu was excusing herself. Yuri's eyes followed over to where her sister ran off, seeing the two new students speaking to Uta-sensei.
Yuri's sight didn't linger long, looking back to Kai with a smile. "I'm just fine, Kai, dear. A little tired after getting the little ones to bed. You saw the pictures I sent last night." She said, excusing herself and turned her head. A hand came up and covered her mouth before letting out another yawn and smiled back to her two friends. "Sooo...what do you two think of the new students?" She whispered towards them.
At the appearance of Uta-Sensei, Kae smiled brightly, holding up a hand, "Good morning Sensei!" Kae liked maths, and he was good at it! So having a maths teacher for homeroom didn't really bother him like it did some other members of the class. Kai bursting into class surprised him and he sat up suddenly, moving a hand to his chest and breathing in. Upon realizing it was Kai he breathed out, slouching down in his chair, hand still on his chest.
As she handed in all the early assignments he blinked, frowning, why would someone do all that work early? Didn't she have anything else to do? He liked maths, but he wasn't rushing to do all his assignments early! There were assigned deadlines for a reason! What if he got something wrong and handed it in before the deadline? He wouldn't be able to get it back!
And then... she completely ignored him. She seemed to have made a beeline for Yuri and just... ignored him? completely? Even though he'd already been talking to Yuri? Huh. That made him feel kind of sad.
"Good morning???" He tried to inject but it felt a little futile at this point. He pulled his phone out, concerned about the bell, and texted Chou quickly.
To: ☆☆Chou☆☆ The bell just went! Where are you??? (?_?)
At the appearance of the new students he blinked before his eyes widened at the sight of the girl. He assumed the boy was her brother or something but he knew the girl! Not personally of course but he'd seen her before!
He watched as Suzu went to introduce herself and he tapped his nails on his desk, looking up as Yuri spoke to him. He stood up and leaned over to talk to her, "Yuri-Chan, that's Anna Wong." He tried to keep his voice quiet, but it was hard! He was so excited and his voice trembled, "She's a model, she's Instagram famous!" He swallowed, fidgeting, "I can't believe she's in our class!"
"Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots."
