Yugi: Forgotten will still be written and put up as planned but this one is going to be co-written with Inu's sister CirelondielGreenleaf.
Headmaster Kain Cross stood with his back to the door of his office while he watched his students file to their separate classrooms from the widow behind his desk. A small smile graced his delicate face. It had been a silent dream of his to open his own school, and it warmed his heart to watch his students laugh and make friends with one another. His very special students.
You see, Cross Academy was a very special school. In a way, it was a school for the 'gifted', for the different. It was a school for those who could not simply attend a normal public school.
Headmaster cross had created a school designed for the hidden part of the world, that was slowly becoming less hidden. The students at his academy consisted of humans, werewolves, shape shifters, wizards and witches, and last but not least, vampires.
The vampires were gathered in what is called the night class, while the later consisted of the day class. Kain had created this school with the hope that all the species of the world would one day live in harmony.
No more fear, no more war. So far things were going well. There had been very few fights break out on campus, and only a handful of parents had called to scream at Kain over the phone. Oh headmaster Cross was no fool; he knew that a great many humans and others a like disagreed with his plan for peace. And there would always be those who would forever fight against him. But for now, things were great, and for now Kain Cross would continue to let more students attend his school, no matter what happened.
Just then there was a knock on his door, and the headmaster turned around to greet his guest, with a great smile on his face.
Solomon Moto walked into the room smiling at the man in front of him. He was an elderly man who had come to enroll his two grandsons at the academy. Although the boys rejected his choice and fought him on it at first, he had managed to convince them to give the new school a try.
He bowed slightly to Kain. "Hello, you must be Kain Cross I am Solomon Moto and these..." He gestured to the two tri-color haired teens next to him, "... Are my grandchildren, Yugi and Heba Moto."
The pale teen bowed. "Hello I am Yugi."
The tan teen just stood there staring at Kain. "And I am Heba."
Kain remained silent for a split second before breaking out into a seemingly impossibly bigger smile and running over to the twin boys. He threw his arms around them before gushing,
"You two are soooooooooo adorable!" He rubbed his cheek against each of the boy's faces.
"I can't believe you are joining my family today!" He pulled away and looked at each of their faces. Headmaster Cross frequently referred to his students as his family, seeing as he has no family of his own. He straightened then looked to the boy's grandfather and extended his hand out for Solomon to shake. Suddenly being very professional now.
"I am indeed headmaster Kain Cross. It's a pleasure to meet you and your boys"
Although the headmaster was sometimes a bit of a spaz, he knew when it was time to be more of an adult, and less of a child
Solomon stared stunned for a moment. The old man having a hard time registering what just happened. He then took Kain's hand and shook it. "The pleasure is all min, are you alright sir?"
Heba turned to his brother eyes wide. He leaned in and whispered in his ear. "What just happened?"
Heba shook his head and sighed whispering back. "I believe we just entered the nut house Yugi. That mans sudden attitude change proves it. No wonder he allows vampire to wander around here freely."
Kain allowed a laugh to escape his lips before gesturing to the Moto's to have a seat at the chairs in front of his desk. He decided it would be best not to antagonize the young Moto by responding to his comment about his vampire students.
"Yes yes I'm fine. Forgive me, I believe you will discover while you study here that I am not the usual ever day headmaster."
He smiled again while he sat in his own chair and pulled out the file that had been sent to him from Yugi and Heba's previous school. The file had been very thorough in explaining the Moto boys. Yugi is more carefree and shy, while his twin is outgoing and has a sharp tongue. They both have been A students before the accident that happened a few years ago. The headmaster would be lying if he said he wasn't afraid how that accident would affect the boys while they are here. Which also raised the question, why?
Why would they willingly agree to attend a school, with students such as his, knowing full well what they would go through?
Kain flipped the file closed and looked up to the family in front of him.
"I hope this question doesn't harm you too much, but I'm afraid that I need to ask it." The headmaster watched their expressions carefully.
"Could you tell me about the accident? And, no offense intended but, why are you here? Why have you decided to attend my academy?"
Yugi slid farther into his chair and Heba sat up straighter. Both teens suddenly as stiff as a board.
Solomon cleared his throat and looked at his grandsons in worry. "I'm afraid they are here because of me. I want them to get the best education and your school has the highest regards. Plus it's not like they're going to be attending with the... Different students." He said carefully not wanting to insult the headmasters other students.
Yugi let out a depressed sigh and looked up at Kain. "The accident happened ten years ago when we were eight." He looked to Heba who nodded telling him to go on.
Yugi looked back to Kain, suddenly very serious. "We were asleep in our beds when we heard mom scream. She shouted 'monster' and then there was a huge crash." He bit his lips to hold back his tears and looked down at his lap, using his blond bangs to hide his face.
Heba then turned to Kain taking over for Yugi. "We crawled out of bed and wandered into their room where we found mom on the ground and a vampire over her, sucking the life out of her. Dad was against the wall holding a stake but too scared to move."
He took a shaky breath and closed his eyes. "He told us to run but we didn't."
Yugi looked back up at Kain, his cheeks stained with tears. "The vampire then let mom go and jumped dad. H-he wa-was ki-killed i-in fr-front of us."
Yugi broke down into tears and Heba pulled his brother into his arms rubbing circles on his back to calm him down.
Headmaster Cross's face fell to reveal one of great sympathy for the boys.
"I am so sorry for what you both had to go through. I can only begin to imagine how terrible it must have been." He stood up and looked out the window and let a little sigh escape his lips.
"In regards to your statement Mr. Moto, your grandsons will be attending class with werewolves, wizards, witches and shape shifters." He turned and gave the family a little smile; he tried to be both encouraging and sympathetic to their situation.
"And while you will not have direct contact with the night class, they do live on campus. And I can assure you we do background checks on all of our students. In both the day class and the night class. My academy is composed of the best students in the state. None of them are as-" The headmaster paused, trying to think of the most appropriate word to use.
"None of them are as degrading, as the one you encountered. They will not harm you boys, I swear it."
Solomon nodded and looked to his grandsons who managed to calm down. He was worried about them being around the vampires, but with Kain here his worry was lessened. He trusted the man and hoped the boys would at least be able to enjoy there years here, even if leaving them saddened him greatly.
He turned back and smiled at Kain. "As long as they don't have direct contact with the night student, they should be fine."
Heba nodded and managed to smile a little. "We owe it to our parents to get the best education possible."
Yugi nodded in agreement. "We promised them we would."
Kain nodded, knowing that the boys would not believe him no matter how many times he told them that the night class was not that dangerous. The headmaster picked up two folders off his desk and handed them to the boys.
"Inside these folders you boys will find an assortment of sheets. One being your class schedules, although most of your classes are together there are two that you have separate from each other. Also in the folder is a sheet that explains the dorms, proper edict rules and regulations etc. There is also a map of the campus just in case you get lost. It's rare but it has happened." Cross chuckled and gave the boys an encouraging smile.
"I do hope you grow to think of this school as your home away from home. Now, I have a meeting that I must attend, but allow me to page one of my best students and they may give you a tour of the campus and the dorms for me." Headmaster Kain picked up the phone off his desk, punched in a couple numbers, and waited.
After a couple of seconds the other person must have picked up the phone because the headmaster smiled and once again switched to his more cheery child like personality.
"Ah, finally my young Ryou, I need you to do me a favor! Would you come to my office and give a family a tour for me? Pretty please?" Kain smiled and listened to other line before thanking him and hanging the phone up.
"Ryou will be here in a second to give you the tour." He said to the Moto's before giving them a big smile.
Yugi shivered, his constant mood changes scaring him. Heba must have felt the same because he inched closer to Yugi.
Solomon smiled and turned to his grandsons. "Okay my boys, I have to go but I hope you have a good time here. Call me if you ever need me." He hugged the two of them and a few tears slipped by. The thought of leaving the only family he had left hurt his old fragile heart. He ruffled their hair and turned to Kain. "Please take good care of them, call me if there are any problems and if you need to know anything else." He held out a hand for Kain to shake.
Headmaster Kain gently shook the old man's hand, giving him a warm smile.
"No need to worry sir, your boys are in great hands I promise" Just then a gentle knock sounded on the office door and Cross leaped acorss the room to open it. A small boy, about Heba and Yugi's size walked into the room. His hair was spiked and long and silver in color. He wore the traditional day class uniform and the color of his tie symbolized that he was human. He bowed and greeted himself,
"Pleased to meet you, my name is Ryou."
The headmaster smiled and glomped the young boy.
"Isn't he just the cutest?" Having no children of his own the headmaster is often prone to hugging his students and treating them as if they were his own. Ryou just stood there and allowed the headmaster to gush over him; after all he was use to his behavior.
Solomon slipped past the young albino teen, gave one last look at his grandchildren and then left.
Yugi tilted his head to one side and inspected the boy. He looked so innocent and sweet, he smiled fondly at him. 'I hope we can become friends' He thought.
Heba watched the scene in curiosity. "Is this normal behavior for him?" He asked the silver haired teen.
Ryou smiled back and nodded,
"Yes, the headmaster is more like a father figure than a headmaster. But this is the best school that I have ever been to." he shrugged his shoulders, "And honestly you get use to the hugging and the weirdness" he chuckled and pulled away from the headmaster.
"Headmaster don't you have a meeting to get to?" Suddenly Kain straightened up and rushed to his desk to grab a file from it.
"Yes yes, thank you for reminding me Ryou!" Turing to the Moto's he waved and wished them luck getting settled into their dorm room. Rather than giving them separate dorm mates the headmaster made sure that they would be sharing a room. He figured they would be more comfortable that way.
After he rushed out of the room Ryou smiled at them and gestured for the twins to follow him. He started with the main courtyard, showing them the gardens and pointing to the paths that led to each dorm building.
"Because we are a part of the day class we aren't allowed to go into the nigh class dorm. But that doesn't stop a lot of students from trying." Ryou explained.
Many day class students tried to get into the night class dorm, in the hopes of trying to see the students of the night class
Heba looked around smiling fondly at the flowers; they reminded him of his mother's garden back home. She used to love gardening and the twins would often help her. "Believe me Ryou; you won't have to worry about us trying to sneak into their dorm."
Yugi nodded in agreement looking over at the different gates, his gaze landing on the moon dorm one. "If anything, we will want to be as far from them as possible."
Ryou fought back the urge to ask why but decided against it. After all, they had just met and he didn't want to intrude too much into their personal lives. He simply nodded and proceeded to show them the way to their dorms.
"I'll show you to your rooms then and give you guys some time to settle in. When you're done I'll show you the common room, where everyone just hangs out and plays games and such. If you want i can show you around the school too, and guide you through you through your schedules." Ryou silently hoped that he didn't seem pushy or over bearing, he was just trying to be friendly. Being the new student, especially at this school, could be over whelming and a bit nerve racking.
Yugi smiled and nodded silently grateful he didn't ask about their parents, going through the explanation once today was bad enough.
Heba and Yugi followed the teen to the sun dorms where they made their way to their new room. They unlocked the door and placed their bags on the bed.
The room was average sized with white walls and a black rug and curtains. There were two beds again the walls. Behind the beds was a sliding glass door that lead out to a balcony. Heba chose the one on the left and Yugi took the one on the right. Next to the beds were night stands and in front the beds of them were two desks. Next to the desks were dressers.
Yugi turned to Ryou and smiled. "Ryou right? When do classes begin and end?"
Ryou tilted his head to the side, a questioning look forming on his face.
"Did the headmaster give you your schedules? It should explain the times for each of your classes. I'm only asking because it's slightly different for each student. For example, I have the first period free because I'm slightly more a head then some other students. Other students have early release. First period begins at 8am though and last period ends at 3pm."
Yugi and Heba pulled out there schedules and looked them over.
"I have First period free, then Biology, Lunch, Geometry, English Enriched, World History." Yugi said and then turned to Heba.
"Uh, I have first Free as well, then Biology, Lunch, Algebra, English Enriched, Japanese History." He answered and turned to Yugi. "Cross-san was right we have everything together but math and science."
Yugi shrugged and gave Heba a slight smile. "We will be fine, we don't have to take class with them remember. And its only 90 mins were apart."
Heba smiled back and ruffled his twin's hair. "I know that."
Yugi pulled away and fixed his hair half glaring at his brother.
Heba then turned to Ryou. "So, what are the other students like and will we have to interact with the night class at all?"
Ryou ponder his question for a second before answering,
"I don't interact with most of the day class, but i do have a couple friends that i could introduce you too. They're good people; i have had the same group of friends since i stared school here." Ryou gave them a warm smile to emphasize his statement, before continuing.
"As for your second question, once a week, usually Friday nights, headmaster Kain gathers both the night class and the day class together for some interacting. He doesn't force everyone to go, it's mostly optional, but he likes the two classes to interact to try and emphasize his idea of peace between all the species. It s the whole reason he started this school. He wants to prove that everyone can live together in harmony." Ryou sat down at the desk across from Heba's bed and watched the twin's faces. From the way they have been cautiously asking about the night class he could assume they has something against vampires, but once again Ryou gathered it would be best not to ask. Instead he continued explaining.
"I have attended a couple of the gatherings recently. They weren't bad, mostly the day class students hit on the night class students. They are a few that genuinely want to get to know one another. Some are just curious about a different species from their own. All in all it's not that bad of an experience."
Heba and Yugi sat on there beds and digested the information they were just given. Heba sighed and ran a hand through his hair. "It would be nice to meet your friends Ryou. Getting to know people all ready is very useful."
Yugi nodded in agreement and turned to face him. "That is if you don't mind. But I don't think we will be going to the gatherings."
Heba shook his head and thought of a reasonable excuse. "We have enough to do with catching up on what we missed already, I'm sure the teachers have a bunch of stuff for us to do to make up for our lost time."
Ryou nodded and pretended that he believed the brothers excuses. Maybe in time they would agree to go with him and his friends...that is if Joey doesn't drag them first. Ryou decided not to share that bit of information with the Moto twins; after all, he didn't want to scare them away from meeting one of his best friends already.
