The School Dance was near and Youri remained to wander around the Edo Bugei after the routinary lessons beside Kayoko in search for something to do in those days. Nothing passed in their minds, and at this point they were soon to give up everything and wait for the next year to come.
"Although we're pretty new here, it would be nice to join this ball!" The young one begun to speak to break away their silence.
Youri wasn't much edged about like her, clearly noticeable in his groaning tone. "Hm, just the usual crowdy events for boring simperings."
"C'mon, it could be a way to finally be a part of the Academy, or maybe it could be a way to meet more Students like us!"
The last part of her own sentence lit up an idea. She stopped to think a moment about before she gave a wide grin at him. She had already something plotted in her mind, something that he didn't wanted to hear.
"Why don't you ask out Viola
? She seems perfect! You two could go to the dance and know each other better!"
His reaction was expectable.
"No way." He groaned again with an annoyed frown at her, almost angry. But Kayoko insisted.
"Aww bro, it's just one night to have fun, thing that you should experience more than remaining all the time in your bedroom when you have done the lessons!"
He rolled up his eyes and huffed annoyed, hating to admit to himself that she was right about. He was the first who acted quite intolerant to seal some friendships with the Students here, preferring to maintain a space between him and the rest of the Academy in favour to keep his watch on Kayoko. The rest of the day were spent in training, studying and listening to blasting Rock music in his room.
They remained to stare at each other for some long minutes, almost to read their minds or to silently quarrel about this Dance... and Kayoko seemed the winner.
With a loud sigh he threw up his hands and admitted his "defeat" on the will of his sister, which made her only happy and proud of him.
"Ok ok! You won. I will go and find her today to ask her out for the dance. But just because I wouldn't know what to do in those days."
"Yes! You go, brother!"***
Since they forgot to ask her phone number back when they met the first time in the park, he decided to search for her around the First Floor area of the building, where the First Year Students are... and where Viola would be around for sure.
He begun to search for her, trying to find her light blue eyes and her light brown hair among the many faces of the Students around. His focus was solely for her now, to the point that he forgot also himself at the raising fatigue of walking fast up and down the halls. He realised that only when the pain on his left side became prickly and his breath felt burning in his throat, so he decided to stop his search for a moment and rest on a wall of one of the long halls of the First Floor.She must be somewhere...
he thought as he crossed his arms with a last huff puffing his cheeks. He was starting to regret his choose.Shinku Tenshi
