She had long blond hair --- with some braids and a blue bandanna. A white frilly layered skirt and a mango colored sweater top. Big, green swirly eyes and wore no make-up what-so-ever. Her expression was cheerful, yet bright, and she was extremely cute and eye-catching.

As she stepped into her soon-to-be classroom, every one immediately stopped talking.

"Class," started Ms. Inoe in her sweet teacher voice, "This is our new student, Rikku. Please welcome her into our class!" The class started clapping as they were told, but not enthusiastically. They all stared at the new girl clothes like it were weird alien suits. But who could blame them? They were all wearing expensive designer clothes. "Rikku, please sit in that seat next to Yuna, sweetie." Rikku smiled, nodded obediently and walked over to sit next to the girl with brown hair, one eye blue and the other one green, who looked very kind compared to the rest of the class who were frowning at her (mostly the girls). Someone even yelled out, "Yuna we'll still love you even though you sit next to a piece of crap!" (A/N: Bursts into tears ) The whole class roared with laughter until Ms. Inoe yelled out sharply, saying whoever that person was that said something that rude was going to get a detention (even on the first day).

After class...

As everyone walked out of the classroom, most people shoved her over and gave her dirty looks that said: 'What do you want?' Rikku sighed. She should've known. This was a private school for rich, spoiled kids. As she sighed once more, Yuna came over to her and gave a reassuring smile. "Oh, they're always like that to new kids, especially those groups of girls sitting in the back. Everyone agrees with them because they're all too scared to be teased by their gang leader. Don't mind them." Rikku smiled at her thankfully. "Thank-you. You're really nice."

- - - - - - - - - -

The gossip was really going wild, like: "is she from the circus or something?" But most of all people were asking to themselves: "Who is she and why is she here?" When Rikku was going to her locker and the end of the day to pack her stuff, a tall, raven-haired girl with pointy eyes wearing a pink mini skirt and an expensive tube top stood in front of her, blocking Rikku from getting to her locker.

"Yes?" asked Rikku innocently.

"Don't 'yes' me, bitch. I really don't like what you're wearing. And no make-up? You really needa get a life." said the tall girl.

"You said it Selina" said one of her gang friends.

Rikku just blinked at them. "What's wrong with what I'm wearing?"

"Oh pla-lease! Those clothes are like, so from K-Mart or something! Move." Selina said as she shoved Rikku aside.

After she left, Yuna rushed over to Rikku. "I take it that's the gang leader?" asked Rikku, her forehead creased. "Yeah, but are you okay?" Rikku just smiled. Then she realized that there was this other girl, stern looking with grayish-silver hair looking at her and Yuna. "Yuna I'm going ahead to meet up with the Lulu and the others." Yuna looked in her direction. "Sure. See you!" She replied.

Everyone was whispering around them but they were silenced by a handsome, blond boy. All the girls were giggling around Rikku and Yuna as he walked past them. As he passed by Yuna and Rikku, he turned to look at Yuna. "Hey Yuna." "Hi! Paine and the others went ahead, okay? Don't ask me where they are..." He grinned. "What ever you say." He walked a few more steps but stopped. "You comin'?" Yuna nodded. "Just in 2 minutes, okay? You go on ahead." The guy looked from Yuna to Rikku, shrugged his shoulders, put his hands in his pockets and walked out the door.

"Umm...Who was that?" asked Rikku. Yuna broke out into a huge grin. "You think he's cute, don't you."

"Ermm...."

"Come on. Get your stuff and I'll introduce you to the rest of the gang. By the way, his name is Gippal."

"Gippal, hmm...?" murmured Rikku.

- - - - - - - - - -

Halfway to the park, Rikku paused.

"Yuna, I can't come. I just remembered...I had to do something. Sorry."

"Really?" She looked disappointed. "I really really want you to meet them though...How about this!" she brightened up. "You come earlier tomorrow and I'll introduce them to you first thing!"

Rikku waved goodbye to her and started walking (home?).

- - - - - - - - - -

As Gippal walked down that path that led to his mansion, he spotted the 'new girl. She had that faraway look in her eyes and she was admiring the trees. He wondered why no one liked her --- well, that's what he heard. And her clothes weren't all that bad either. It made her look cute. She was really pretty too, and for some reason he just couldn't take his eyes off her.

He shook his head and snapped out of his daze. She was probably like one of those may girls who were ways following him and bugging him.

"Hello!" he said. He expected her to be surprised, but she was undaunted as ever and just turned to look at him.

"Hi, I'm Rikku." she said grinning like they were best buddies.

"Yeah I know that." he said. He was waiting for her to ask what his name was, so that he could snap at her and give her a taste of his own rudeness --- but it never came.

"Aren't the trees beautiful this season?" she asked cheerfully. Gippal looked up at the trees she was looking at. Wow. It was actually very beautiful, he never noticed it before either, but of course he wouldn't say that. "It's crap." Rikku just shrugged her shoulders.

As Gippal was walking towards his home, he realized Rikku was following him. He spun around.

"What do you want?" he said angrily.

Rikku just looked at him blankly.

"But Gippal, I live with you."
