Author's notes: This is my first Slam Dunk story so please review!
Keri listened at the closed door of her sister Alexa. Her older sister was crying again. Keri could hear her muffled sobs. All because of that no-good boyfriend of hers, who broke up with her. It doesn't matter that Keri used to adore her older sister's boyfriend since he always plays with her and buy her stuffs. Keri hates him now, all because he made her sister cry. "Boys." Keri's young mind thought disgusted, She tiptoed back to her room as she heard Alexa's sobs subside.
10 years old Keri Yuy walked out of their new house. They had recently transferred to Shohoko since it was closer to their new home. Keri was going to study at the elementary building besides her sister school. Along the way, she passed by a basketball court. She smiled as she remembered her summer days. She her sister and her sister's boyfriend were all playing basketball together. Her smile turned sour as she remembered her sister's tears.
Keri hesitantly walked towards the court as she heard someone playing. She arrived just in time witnessing someone do a beautiful lay up shot. "Oh Wow!" Keri thought awed. "He's even better at basketball that that idiot my sister dated." Keri thought observing the stranger who did another beautiful play. The guy then stopped playing, walking over to the bench and grabbing his mineral water.
Keri approached the stranger slowly. "Um, hello." Keri spoke shyly. The guy looked behind him then stared down at Keri's small form. His deep blue eyes softened as Keri looked up to him innocently. "You're so good, you should play against Alex." Keri said enthusiastically. "Thanks." Rukawa said quietly wiping his sweat.
"What's your name?" Keri asked chattily. Rukawa paused and looked down again at the child's eager eyes. "Rukawa Kaede." He replied shrugging a bit. "Cool! My, name's Keri, Nice to meet you." Keri replied excited. Then the bell rang, "Oh no! I'm going to be late." Keri said distressed. "Bye Rukawa sempai, you and Alex should meet." Keri shouted. "Nice kid." Rukawa thought walking out of the court as well.
Alexa wiped a couple of tears away. Her sister Keri had left earlier. "This was no way to start a new day at a new school." Alexa thought as she stared at her mirror appalled that she had been crying again this morning over him. Right then and there Alexa made a pact that she was not going to ever think, speak or worse cry over him again. Akira Sendoh doesn't exist anymore. Alexa resolved.
She finally arrived at her new school, Shohoko. She fixed her golden-brown tresses and her make up before getting out of her car and walking inside. She shifted uneasily as she felt stares behind her back that was making her uncomfortable.
"Huh?" Sakuragi Hanamichi thought as she saw his fellow classmates both boy and girl line up at the hallway staring at something. "It better not be kitsune." Sakuragi thought fuming. He was surprised when he saw a beautiful girl in the middle of the hallway, looking lost. He decided to take pity on the girl and approach her. "Hey are you lost?" Sakuragi tapped the girl's shoulder. The girl focused her light green eyes at him gratefully. "Um…yes could you please direct me to the principal's office?" the girl asked her voice soft.
"Sure, by the way my name's Sakuragi Hanamichi." He introduced. "Alexa Yuy." She replied. "This is the office, Alexa, I'll see you around." Sakuragi said walking away. "Thank you very much." Alexa said smiling a bit, Sakuragi smiled too at her unique beauty and left. After she finished enrolling she went to her classroom.
She introduced herself to the class and sat beside a sleeping boy. She frowned as she saw the female population in the class stare at her darkly. Alexa paid no heed and opened her textbook. Soon the bell rang, as soon as she stood up, someone knocked her down. She started to fix her things again when she heard someone mutter a sorry. She looked up and gasped. "Blue eyes." She thought startled as she remembered once again Sendoh. She mentally kicked herself for the thought. She stared at the blue eyes once more and thought better of it, not like Sendoh, the guy's eyes was deep blue and a blank expression was on his face in contrast to Sendoh's usually smiley one. "It's okay." She murmured under her breath and left the room.
Alexa walked towards another building to pick up Keri, along the way she passed by the basketball court. Her vision clouded as tears threatened to fall. She took a deep breath and calmed herself. She entered the gym, "Hello?" she called out. No one was there yet, since Alexa was dismissed early since she was excused for not joining the activities since she's new.
She picked up a ball that was lying on the ground and played. Playing basketball always made her feel free, untroubled. She played for about fifteen minutes when she felt someone watching her. She didn't notice that someone had entered the gym. Embarrassed, she stopped playing. "Excuse me." She murmured avoiding eye contact and grabbing her belongings.
Rukawa had watched amazed at the girl's graceful movements when she had suddenly stopped playing and walked out. He watched her retreating figure before walking to the lockers and change to his basketball uniform.
Keri waited patiently for her sister. "Hey Keri did you wait long?" Alexa asked smiling approaching her sister. Keri shook her head. "Let's go home." Keri said clasping Alexa's hand. "Hey Alex? Can you bring me to school tomorrow?" Keri asked. "Sure why not?" Alexa responded. "Great!" Keri responded happily. She wanted to go back to that basketball court and see if that man was there again. "He and Alex should be perfect with each other." Keri thought to herself.
