Hmm, for some reason my mind kept on telling me to create a story like this... so I did! Please review!
Ai looked at the school nervously, her blue eyes stared at the main door, and she tightened her grip on her flute case as she passed through the grand set of doors. The doors made a loud creak that filled the grand hallway. Her gradient blue and light green wavy hair that went down to her hips waved gallantly as a wave of wind covered her. Ai wasn't nervous about her new classes, she was afraid of her new classmates. Boys. All boys. Ai's grades in her previous school allowed her to enroll in the elite musical academy for girls, Hoshi Academy. But the school was already filled so her parents resorted to the all boys' academy Shirubā no itan-ji Academy. For boys. That was the worst decision that her parents made in all of her lifetime. The Shirubā no Itan-ji Academy is the sister school of Hoshi Academy. Only they split up the students by gender.
Ai glanced at the ceiling above her and walked forward. Her small footsteps echoed loudly in the hall. A group of voices started to chat and laugh as she neared a corner. She held her breath as she kept her slow pace, she didn't even want to look or even glance at them as she walked passed them. A boy whispered to one of his friends loud enough for Ai to hear, "A girl is the new student?" "Is the other academy full already?" "This is probably going to be interesting for the next year."
Ai created a mental barrier from the group of guys she passed; she didn't want to hear any more remarks from them. Her feet quickly hopped over a couple of steps and turned sharply. She quickly skipped over some flights of steps until she came to the third floor. With her free hand, she pulled on the heavy metal door and walked through and stopped. Her dorm hallway was like a five star hotel. Carpet with fancy designs ran through the wide foyer. The lights above her head were chandeliers that were covered in crystals that bounced the light in various directions.
She took a left and checked the numbers on the doors, 165, 166, 167,168, and stopped at 169, she dug through her pocket and glanced at her paper, the numbers 169 were printed clearly on the paper, she sighed and found the key hidden in the folded paper and quickly shoved the metal key in the lock. Before she turned the key, a door slammed right next to her. She jumped and looked to her left, a guy about five inches taller than her with silver tousled hair and black eyes were walking in her direction. He stopped a few feet away from her and said in a partial surprised tone, "You're the new student?"
Ai shrugged her shoulders, "Obviously, considering that I'm the only girl here." He smirked slightly, "Well then, looks like I'm your dorm neighbor for the rest of the year."
"Joy," she said casually. She turned the key and then the doorknob; the guy spoke again, "I'll see you soon."
Ai nodded and entered her dorm. She closed it and the guy walked away. The dorm was a light shade of red and was relatively large. The large twin bed was backed up next to the balcony door. Parallel to the bed was the bathroom door. There was a small desk at the corner of the room with a lamp and a chair. She carefully placed her flute case on the bed and stretched. The clock on the desk read 11:27 A.M. Only three minutes until her first class begun. Her first instinct was to grab her phone and call her friend Naomi who's enrolled in Hoshi Academy. Her finger pushed for speed dial, the numbers beeped loudly in the phone's speaker and her ear was right next to it. The phone rung for a few seconds until Naomi's voice answered.
"Naomi! Oh my God! I'm freaking out! I'm freaking out!"
"So you made it to the school in one piece after all huh? Any hot boys there?" Her voice squeaked.
"Hot boys…" she muttered, "Uh, not that I know of! That's not the point! I'm terrified! Help me!"
"Well it's not my fault that Hoshi Academy suddenly filled up on students. I actually envy you, I mean you're surrounded my freaking hot boys with no competition!"
"You are missing the point Naomi! I never even mentioned if there were! Well…" Ai thought of the boy she just talked to, "I did talk to this one guy. Apparently he's my dorm neighbor."
Naomi squealed, "Oh my God Ai! Is he hot?"
"I barely looked at his face! How should I know?"
"Well I have to leave you; classes are starting. I'll text you!" Naomi said.
"Now just wait a second! Naomi!"
A constant beep now sounded in her phone. "Ugh, Naomi!" She moaned as she angrily pushed the hang up button. She muted her cell and placed it in her pocket. The clock now read 11:30 A.M. Ai's heart raced with anxiety as she turned and opened the door. She slipped the dorm key in her pocket and walked briskly down the hall.
Ai sucked in a gallon of air before she entered the piano room; she pushed on the doors and walked in slowly. A bunch of shining black grand pianos sat at the far end of the room. Some desks were a few yards away from them. A large set of eyes now were focused on her, she swallowed as the sensei motioned her forward. He spoke in a deep voice, "Everyone listen up! This is Kaneko Ai, I want you to show her plenty of respect as she joins us for the year!"
Ai saw a few guys smirk, she thought in her mind, I'm in this class for no more than a minute and there's already a few perverts in the class. Wonderful… just wonderful.
The sensei directed Ai to sit next to some guy named Kaito Tachibana, to her surprise, he pointed to the same guy she met earlier. Ai nodded and casually walked to him, she pulled up a seat next to him and stayed completely silent. This is so freaking awkward!
Kaito looked at her, "What do you know, I told you that I would see you soon."
"You knew about my schedule?"
"No, the class roster is based on the dorm sections. Since your dorm is right next to mine, I figure that we will have nearly all classes together."
"Well at least I have a few classes with someone I met five minutes ago."
He chuckled, "Just to make sure you had it, I'm Tachibana Kaito."
"I'm Kaneko Ai." She tried to smile.
"Should I call you Kaneko-san or some other formality. I have a feeling that I'll be calling you many times."
"You can just call me Ai."
"Then you can call me Kaito."
"Okay then," Ai nodded and focused at the sensei who was talking about… actually, since she was so far back she could barely hear what he was saying. A few minutes later, all of the students stood and headed to the back of the room. She and Kaito stood and found a piano; the sensei walked closer to the pianos and said loudly, "Ai, would you care to play your best piece?"
Her body was now petrified with fear. Play? In front of a bunch of guys? Inside her head, she was screaming until her lungs exploded. She took a breath and thought of a piece that she played for a concert. Seconds later, her fingers stroked the shined keys; her fingers rapidly played a few notes. The song grew into a crescendo as her fingers started flying. She was in her zone. Nothing could separate her from her piano. The notes caressed her mind as she continued the ballad of notes, her fingers slid over the keys suddenly as her heart raced. She closed her eyes as she hummed the tune. Not only she was a piano prodigy but she was an excellent singer and flutist. Her soothing voice flowed with the carefully picked notes. The piano vibrated at the gradual crescendo and decrescendo. As the song slowed and softened, her humming was loud enough for the whole class to hear, once she played the last notes, she opened her eyes slowly finding a majority of the students with their eyes widened and mouth agape slightly. The sensei gave her an approving nod, "Thank you Kaneko-san. It was beautiful."
Ai let out a sigh of relief as she took her fingers off of the keys. She heard murmurs around her, "Holy crap! She's good!" "I wonder what she'll be doing for the final exam!" "Damn! Did you see how fast she was going?"
Kaito gave her a smirk saying, show off.
Ai shrugged and looked straight down at the keys, hoping that the class would end.
The bell rang with a loud ding! Ding! Ai stood and walked to the door, a few students raced to toward her. She could tell by all of the accelerating feet that were nearing her. Before she could grab the door handle a voice stopped her, "You should come over to my dorm sometime," a voice said teasingly. She turned and found three or four guys completely surrounding her. Ai exhaled and rolled her eyes, "Wow, considering that I'm the only girl here… you are really sad and pathetic." She said the last few words with a harsh tone. The guy was shocked at first but he managed to keep that perverted smile on his face, "Ooh, kitty's got some fire."
"Go to hell." She said aloud, the few guys gawked at her response. Before the guy could say anything else, Kaito shoved through the crowd and stood in front of her. His back was facing her as he spoke, "Oi! If you guys make any move on her, I will not hesitate to report you."
He pulled on the door letting them both out of the room. Ai heaved in a sigh, "This is going to be some year."
As they exited the hall and into the courtyard three boys ran up to Kaito, one guy with spiky black hair and purple eyes playfully punched his friend on the shoulder, "I see you managed to find your way to the new girl." He gestured at Ai. Another guy with red hair and yellow eyes looked at Ai, "So, what's your name?"
"Kaneko Ai," she glanced at him.
The guy smiled and pointed to himself, "I'm Yamada Eiichi," he pointed to the guy with black hair, "that's Ichiro, and that's," he pointed to the guy with light-blue hair black eyes, "Makoto."
Ai nodded, Ichiro spoke to Kaito, "So, what happened in the piano room? I heard that there was a fight or something."
"Eh," Kaito sighed, "just some pervs trying to corner Ai."
Ai widened her eyes, "HEY! You just made me seem like a weak, helpless little girl! And it wasn't cornering; the door was right behind me. I could've left but I just felt like fighting back that's all."
"If you say so," Kaito smirked. Eiichi walked around the group and rested an elbow on her shoulder. She gasped and turned her head, "Can I help you?"
"Naw, I just needed an arm rest. Those guys would stab me if I do it to them." Ai giggled softly.
She felt her phone vibrate in her pocket. Ai took it out and answered, "Yes?"
A very loud squeal came from the speaker, Ai jolted back and the three other guys stopped and turned around, giving her a weird expression. Ai rubbed her ear and cringed, "NAOMI! Quit it! My ear will go def if you keep on doing that!" Ai yelled back.
"OH MY GOD! Ai! I just heard that a bunch a boys started to flirt with you a few minutes ago!"
Ai was shocked, how did she know? "Okay… wait. How did you know about that?"
"Some guy texted it to his sister. She told me and I just had to call!"
Ai muttered under her breath, "I've been through the same conversation a few seconds ago! They were pervs okay?"
"You are going to be like stalked for the rest of the year now Ai! You being the only girl at an all boys' school! Eeeeee! I hate you!" Naomi kept on rambling through the phone.
"So I wonder how many guys you'll date…"
"I am so freaking jealous of you…"
"NAOMI!" Ai yelled loud enough for all of the guys in the courtyard to stop and stare at her. She looked around and her face flushed, "Naomi," she said in a quieter tone, "I need you to shut up for a few minutes okay?"
"But Ai! I seriously need to talk to you!" She complained. Ai groaned and took the phone off of her ear, "Okay Naomi, I'm gonna hang up now! My finger is right above the hang up button!" Ai rambled on, trying to drain out Naomi's complains, "I'm gonna hang up in a few seconds okay? My finger is about to push the button? Okay? Okay! Bye!" Ai's finger jammed into the button as she swallowed a bunch of air.
Ai looked around her and saw the guys still staring at her; she let out a quiet, nervous laugh. Eiichi just started laughing, Kaito and the others started to chuckle. Eiichi wiped a tear of laughter from his cheek, "Friend of yours?"
"Unfortunately… yes." Ai sighed.
Kaito grinned, "So that's who you were talking to on the phone earlier today!"
Ai glared at him, "You eavesdropped?"
"No, I just happened to hear the very loud squeal. And then I heard something about being surrounded by hot guys." He leered.
Ai's face turned to a darker shade of red, she stammered, "I-I… no! Naomi said that not me!"
The four boys started to chuckle, Kaito rolled his eyes, "Suuure."
"Remind me to stab her later okay?" Ai managed to say without stuttering with embarrassment.
Haha, I was smiling non-stop when I typed up when Naomi was just freaking out. Chapter 2 is coming REALLY soon!
