Aren't you glad that I revised it? It would've been way too long. Sorry about that. (Especially you, hyperpunkjunkie- I really admire that you read it all!) Here's the better one...

"Chief! I have the information that you had asked for!"

"Good, bring it in." The Chief, a chubby, round-faced man, swiveled his chair to obtain the files that a messenger boy had brought in. "Yes… I like these ones. Put them in a file and label them Unit Two. The rest I will attend to later. Be sure that these people are taken to the meeting this afternoon. I want all three of them gathered by one o'clock. Do not tell them anything. They will find out later. Dismissed…"

"Hey, what are you doing this Saturday, Korishina?"

A rather pretty young girl turned around to see who had addressed her. "What? Oh, Ryoshi…" She came face-to-face with a tall, black-haired boy who seemed fairly nervous. "Come sit with me." They both sat at an empty table close to the library door. "So, what were you saying?"

Icy blue eyes stared straight into Ryoshi's eyes with a 'I'm waiting…' sort of look. Ryoshi gulped. Why does she make me so nervous? This never happened before… "Um… I… uh."

"Yeah?" Korishina started to inch her face closer to his. I love playing with guys…

"Oh, w- w- well, I j- j- just wanted t-t- to know what Saturday you were doing."

Korishina stood up and went around so she was behind Ryoshi. She slid her face close enough to his so her smooth skin was brushing his cheek. "Well," she whispered lightly into his ear. "I was planning to ask you out to some sort of dinner… but I guess you had other plans with Akeida, as she told me in third. So if you wanted a dinner with me, you should have asked when your weekend was free…" She backed up and ruffled his hair when she turned to join her sister.

"Dammit! What dinner with Akeida?…" Ryoshi buried his face into his hands. "She is so hard to get…"

"What was that all about?" Toralin asked, as she had just witnessed the scene.

"Ryoshi again. Wanted to know what I was doing this Saturday."

"Korishina, you shouldn't be too hard on him. You know he likes you. In fact, I think he is just about to cross the line with being obsessed with you."

"I dunno. With all those girls that he's been seeing in the past few months you'd think that he'd be cheating on at least one of them."

"Well. I just think that you should at least get to know him. I think he isn't too bad…"

"Yeah, whatever. We gotta got to our next class. I think that today we have Physics." Korishina and Toralin walked past the cafeteria and entered the courtyard.

"Hey! Guess what-" Toralin said as she looked at their schedule for today. "We have Physics next…"

"Why am I not surprised?"

"That's college for ya. But I actually look forward to this lesson today. There will be a new student coming in… a guy student!"

"What's with you and guys? I can't see what you see in them."

"Oh, well. More for me I guess."

"Class, settle down. I want you to meet the new transfer student coming in from Osaka. Class, this is Juuren Kenshin. He will be here for the remainder of the year. Juuren, please take the seat next to Toralin. Toralin, please stand up." The teacher gave Juuren a little reassuring push and then continued with the lesson.

"Hi Juuren. My name is Toralin Shigami. Have a seat." Damn this boy's cute… he's a real stud muffin…

Just as Juuren was going to say something, the intercom announced, "WILL TORALIN SHIGAMI, KORISHINA SHIGAMI, TSUMARI TAKENARI, AND RYOSHI GOKURA PLEASE REPORT TO THE FRONT OF THE SCHOOL WITH ALL OF THEIR THINGS. I REPEAT, WILL TORALIN, KORISHINA, TSUMARI, AND RYOSHI PLEASE REPORT TO THE FRONT OF THE SCHOOL WITH EVERYTHING. AND I MEAN EVERYTHING! PLEASE SAY YOUR GOODBYES TO THE SCHOOL."

"What is this about? Disrupting my learning time just for this!!!!" Korishina seemed to hate the idea of leaving the school.

"I won't get to see Juuren anymore! And just when I was sitting next to him too!" Toralin complained.

They both gathered all their stuff and were soon at the front wondering why these men in black suits and black cars were here.

One of the men spoke, "Get into the car and leave your stuff here. Do not ask questions unless you are asked to and always address the Chief as Sir or Chief. Do you understand?"

All four of them, though confused, chorused, "Yes sir."
