The first thing I noticed about the female twin exchange students was that they were American. I could tell by their appearances.
Their mid-length blonde hair, one had blue eyes and the other green, their sun-kissed white skin, and thier larger-than-the-average-Japanese-female's chests.
The next thing I noticed was that, other than eye color, they were identical. The only other thing that set them apart was their attitudes, which was the third thing I noticed.
The blue-eyed twin stepped forward at the front of the classroom. She grinned hugely and waved at everyone, "Hi, everyone! My name is Yoko, but everyone just calls me Fox! I'm sure we'll be great friends."
She put her hand down, and, still wearing a huge smile, gave a small bow.
I perked up a bit at the sound of her name. "Yoko" meaning "the positive" in Japanese, although she'd chosen to take the demon meaning as her nickname. Her name fit her very well.
The green-eyed twin stepped forward next to her sister and gave a small bow as well.
"My name is Yuri. Nice to meet you."
She caught more of my attention. Yuri was not shy, but more reserved. Confidence seemed to radiate from her as she gazed over the students.
Her eyes lingered over me a fraction of a second longer before moving on.
The teacher asked if they would mind sitting apart or if they preferred sitting together. They gave simultaneous answers.
Fox pouted at her sister, "Meanie."
Yuri gave her a smirk, but as soon as it was there, it was gone again.
"Very well," she said, taking her sister's arm, "Together, then."
"Yipee!" Fox lept up into the air with authentic joy.
I held back a chuckle as the class laughed.
They were put in desks diagonal to the right of mine.
At lunch hour, the class surrounded them, bombarding them with questions.
I was glad that, for once, people weren't surrounding me.
Grateful for the lack of interruptions, I ate in what I could call peace.
Fox's voice rang above everyone else's, whereas Yuri was harder to hear.
I felt myself straining to hear her voice. I shook my head and concentrated on my lunch instead.
This went on for about a week until the students finally ran out of questions for them. They remained popular and a good part of the student body either was their friend or really wanted to be.
Fox's outgoing personality made her more popular, but Yuri's quiet, but forthcoming personality made her more admired.
I began to realize that these girls had very little or no fear of what people thought of them.
Not that it mattered much since most people liked them anyway.
At lunch, I was becoming a central part of attention again.
One day, after class had ended, I lagged behind as I waited for the classroom to empty. Getting bombarded in the hallways was worse than the classroom.
Going out there now would be near suicidal.
As I bent gathering my books, I felt as though I were being watched.
Just as I was about to look up, a voice spoke.
"Do you think he even realizes it?" It was Fox's voice.
My head snapped up. Both twins were staring at me. Realize what?
"Nope." Yuri's gaze on me was heavy-lidded, making her response seem almost lazy.
"Yeah, I didn't think so." Fox agreed. Yuri handed her a peanut butter cookie, I could smell it, and Fox stuck part of it in her mouth and left it there.
They continued to stare at me as Fox's cookie hung from her mouth, wiggling sometimes as she nibbled on it without using her hands. It was the only part of them that moved.
Just as I was beginning to fee uncomfortable, Yuri spoke.
"You know, we've wondered for a while now why you were the only one who hasn't bothered to say one word to us."
"Not even a simple 'hello'." Fox shook her head sadly.
"I'm sorry. I'm not a crowd follower." I said to them.
Fox giggled, "Oh, that's alright."
Yuri smirked, "We know. You're a crowd leader."
"You're such a natural that you don't even realize it," Fox added.
"Oh, and the girls simply fawn over you," Yuri continued.
"Which is pretty easy to see why," they continued on, taking turns in speaking.
"Handsome, smart, withdrawn in a way that makes you seem mysterious..."
I must have been gaping at them by this point, barely able to comprehend what they were getting at, if at all. I nearly flinched when Fox grinned as wide as she could.
"But we're the only ones who know what makes you really special."
"Something you think is a secret that no one else knows."
My heart began to pound. What could they possibly know about me?
"You're not human, are you, Shuichi?" Yuri's smirk had faded and was now replaced by a hardened stare.
Fox was no longer smiling, either, but she still wasn't as serious as her sister.
My mind raced for a good reaction. I settled for laughing.
"You're kidding, right?" There was no way I would be compromised by a couple of female humans, "What else could I be?"
"A demon." Fox was blunt about it. She said it not as a suggestion, but as a fact.
"My sister and I were born with an exceptionally strong sixth sense. Fortunately, the ability to differentiate between good and evil came with it, so you can relax."
I didn't feel like I could, "Then what is it you want?"
Fox's smile returned ten-fold," To be your friend, of course!"
Yuri nodded, "We've always wanted to be friends with a demon, and it's hard to find one that doesn't want to eat us or isn't trying to take over the earth. Besides, who are we to reveal your secret? It's not ours to tell."
I relaxed then. I could tell they spoke the truth.
"Wow," Fox breathed, "I never thought I'd meet a demon of my name." She giggled.
I ignored this, however, "You said girls fawn over me?"
Yuri chuckled. It was a nice sound. "Yeah, they do. Most of them would kill just to know more about you."
"Oooo! That gives me an idea!" Fox sat up straighter and turned her sparkling gaze on me. I would later learn to recognize that look to be associated with mischief, "Does this school have a newspaper?"
I thought for a second, "Yeah, actually. Why?"
Yuri's smirk returned, "Great idea, Fox."
"We should start a 'Dear Abbey' column!"
"A 'Dear' what?" I asked. Must be an American thing.
Fox 'tsk'ed at me, "A 'Dear Abbey' column. It's a place in the newspaper where students can ask questions or for advice anonymously. The person or persons who answer the questions are anonymous, too. It would do really well if it was about you."
Yuri nodded her agreement, "Girls would be less afraid to approach you that way. Although,"
"The students shouldn't know that it's you answering their questions," Fox continued.
"But rather someone who 'knows' you perfectly." Yuri finished.
The twin talk was beginning to give me a headache, but their idea was interesting.
At the very least, it could be entertaining. Perhaps this way I could finally have classmates as actual friends.
It appealed to me that I wouldn't have to hide from them since they already knew my biggest secret.
"Okay, sounds fun. When do we start?" I gave them a smile.
Fox whooped, stood on her chair, and began doing a little dance. I looked away when I noticed her skirt was a bit short for such a dance.
I chuckled at her. Yuri brought my attention back to her, "I'll get it started tomorrow. We'll use Fox's e-mail for them to send in questions and we'll go from there."
I nodded to her, "Sounds like a plan. Oh, and you can call me Kurama when we're not at school."
