The Academy
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

After dinner, Hikaru and Naomi went to Villa Fi. Their luggages were inside already. Hikaru told Naomi that she’ll be unpacking her things. She took her bags that were by the door and carried them up the stairs. She walked slowly in the hallway. She went to the room at the end. She took a deep breath before she opened the door.

Hikaru entered the room. She looked to her right and saw a bed with the new covers. She noticed that there was a small table in the center. The walls had faded paintings of musical instruments. She put her luggage on the floor before she jumped on the bed. She lied down and put her arm over her eyes. She thought to herself, “I see not much has changed. There are so many memories with this house. There were mostly happy ones. But will I create sad ones again that might overshadow it?” She shook her head and got up. She opened her bag and started unpacking. She couldn’t help but reminisce her past.

Hikaru remembered, “Mother and Father made this house for me to live in. After all, I didn’t have the birthright to rule Melodia. But it was alright with me. Even if I had to hide my identity, I was able to make lot of friends. I was allowed to visit the castle which was close by whenever I wanted. I also had the freedom to go around the town. But that all changed after the war…” Hikaru didn’t want to remember anything else after that. She finished unpacking and decided to sleep.

Hikaru got up early and decided to take a shower. She went downstairs, to her surprise Naomi was awake already. Naomi greeted Hikaru with a passive smile. “Good morning Princess. I’m almost done making breakfast.” Hikaru acknowledged it with a nod. Naomi prepared pancakes. She served Hikaru before she sat down to eat. They ate in silence so she asked, “Princess. May I ask, what is the section assigned to you?” Hikaru stopped chewing. She remembered what happened yesterday afternoon. She answered coolly, “I didn’t check it. I’ll take a look at it later. It’ll still be there anyway.” “Oh.” It felt awkward to continue the conversation any further so they finished the meal in silence again.

After breakfast, Hikaru and Naomi left the house. They both kept a distance with each other. It was silent trip to school as well. Someone shouted from a distance. “Wait. Wait up!” Naomi looked back to see it was Kaito. He was calling Hikaru. She didn’t want to be the cause of uneasiness. She knew it was going to be troublesome to get caught in between, so she started walking ahead.

When Kaito finally caught up with Hikaru, he said, “Hey. You didn’t wait up like I said. Are you still angry about yesterday? Well, I’m sorry about that." Hikaru finally looked at him and replied, “You should.” She was about to walk away when Kaito grabbed her hand. The grip was tighter this time. Kaito asked, “Can we talk for awhile?” Several students passed by. Their giggles could be heard. Hikaru’s cheeks got hot from embarrassment. She let her hand loose while saying in a cold tone, “Let go. People might get the wrong idea.”
“I won’t stop until we talk.”
“Fine, fine. I got it. I’ll listen to what you have to say. Gosh, you’re so persistent. You better make this quick.”
“How feisty. The person I mistaken you with was never like this….”
“Of course, we’re two different people. Is that what you wanted to say? Pathetic. I just wasted my time.”
“No. I guess I want us to start over. I don’t want to have an uneasy relationship with someone……. I’ll… work with.”
“Well, it’s too late about that now.”
Kaito looks at his watch, it’s almost time for the bell to ring. “We’ll see about that. I’ll prove you wrong. We need to go or else we’ll be late.” He grabs Hikaru’s hand again and starts running. Hikaru runs along in order not fall. In Kaito’s mind, “For now, this is the best I can do. I know it’s you Hikaru. I can’t prove it now, but someday I will.”


End of chapter 3 part 1.

COMMENT, COMMENT!! I need feedback on how the story is going along so everything is appreciated.

I'm hoping this part is longer than usual since I might post the next part a bit later than usual.

Thanks Merriot. I wish I could agree but I'm having a writer's block with the next part. *sigh*

I'm glad you've got curious about Hikaru's past. I'm trying to unfold it subtly. Although I thought people might get excited with Hikaru and Kaito's development. Haha.

That is sooo the Gakuen Academy!

I think you should work on less self-hummbling which means that you should talk less about people's mind. Especially Hikaru's. Just a suggestion take it or leave it.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. I need to work on writing more descriptions. Thank you for the criticism Ayame.

The next part is still being written. And I have to say, it's the worst that I've made so far.
