The One To Protect

This story takes place after the final battle between Earth and Zaft. And so war had finally ended. And since there's no need to fight anymore Kira and his friends had decided to go to Orb and study. Cagalli declared Orb to be a free country and decided to live with her brother Kira and his foster parents. Athrun left the plants to join Kira and to be with Cagalli. Dearka come with Athrun and they also asked Yzak to come with them, at first he refused but since war was over there's nothing left for him to do so he accepted their offer. Since Sai's and Miriallia's parents were in Orb they decided to enter the same school with Kira and the others. Lacus also went there since she also wants to continue her studies.

And so the story begins…..

Chapter 1

-First day with new girl-

"Kira, wake up! We should hurry now. We're gonna be late, today's first day of class so get up now!" Cagalli said and pulled Kira's blanket.

"Ok, ok I'll get up now. You know you should fix yourself too, Athrun might come soon." Kira said looking at his sister's messy hair and over-sized T-shirt. Cagalli blushed.

"Whatever! Just get up now. Mom had just finished preparing dinner and asked me to wake you up." She stood up and walk out Kira's room.

…………………………………….

After a few minutes Kira walked out of his room. When he saw Cagalli he started laughing.

"You know you look so cute in that. I think that suits you well" Kira said still laughing.

"Shut up! I can't do anything about it. I can't break school rules you know, and it's not as if I want to wear this short skirt you know." She said as she glares at Kira whose still laughing.

"But you look really cute in it. Athrun's gonna love it!" He said catching his breath.

"Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" She shouted.

"You know if I had known that that school had such unacceptable uniform. I should have changed its rule before I quit being a princess." Kira stopped laughing.

"Well that's just the way it is, why aren't you happy?" He asked her frowning.

"Of course not brother. I'm just kidding. I love my life the way it is." She said and smiled at him.

"But I really hate this uniform." She said. Kira looked at her from head to toe. Her hair was like it's usual. She wore a white shirt with a black necktie and a black skirt that doesn't reach her knees. He smiled at her.

"I give you an eight." He said grinning.

"What do you mean?" She shouted as she followed her brother walk down the stairs.

When they reached their living room Athrun was sitting on the couch.

"What took you two so long? Do you realize that we can't be late for class since it's the-" Athrun was cut and started laughing as soon as he saw Cagalli. Kira laughed with him which made Cagalli's face turn red.

"Damn it! Would the two of you stop that? Or do you want me to take this thing off right now?" She said grinning. Kira and Athrun blushed then stopped laughing.

"Well that's better. Now let's go I don't want to be late on the first day of class." She said and walk towards the door as Athrun and Kira followed her.

……………………..

"Hey I thought you'll go to school with Dearka and Yzak? Don't tell me you left them?"

"Uhmmm…yeah. So what?" Athrun asked his girlfriend.

"Why did you do that?"

"Yzak's really stubborn. When I left the apartment the Dearka and him's still fighting about who to cook dinner later." He said laughing.

"I can't imagine how normal our lives become. I'm really happy." Cagalli said smiling. Athrun hold her hand and smiled at her.

"Yeah, it's so much better than before." He said as they reach their school 'Ummei High'. Just when they were about to walk towards the entrance a car parked just beside them. When the car's door open Lacus came out, wearing the same uniform that Cagalli's been wearing.

"Well, good morning to all of you." She said smiling at them. Kira smiled at her.

"Good morning to you too." He greeted back.

"Good morning." Athrun and Cagalli greeted in unison.

"Well we should go now." Kira said leading them. In the hallway they met Miriallia and Sai.

"Hello there." Lacus greeted them.

"Good morning." They greeted.

"You know it's such a coincidence that all of us are classmates." Sai said happily.

"Yeah, but it's really nice." Cagalli said and all of them started walking to their classroom.

………………………………

When they all reached their classroom and took their seat Dearka and Yzak came in breathing heavily. The two of them took their seat near Athrun.

"Damn you! Why did you leave us?" Yzak yelled at Athrun who's laughing at them.

"You're so busy earlier. I thought it would be better if I left the two of you alone." Athrun look at Dearka who's also glaring at him.

"We almost got late. You're really mean dude." Dearka said.

"Well atleast you're not the teacher's still not here." Athrun said.

"Yeah if we hadn't run around like crazy we couldn't have made it" Yzak said smiling.

"Wow, now that's rare. Did Yzak just smiled?" Dearka thought in amazement.

"Well atleast you made it in time." Athrun said smiling at the two of them.

Just then the teacher came in and greeted the students.

"Well good morning to all of you, before class begin I want to introduce myself to all of you. I'm Miss Mika Hikari. Now I want to know if all of you are here so I'll take the atten-" She was cut when the door suddenly burst open and a girl stood infront, catching her breath.

"I'm sorry miss I'm late" The girl with red hair said as she entered the classroom. Kira was shocked.

"Am I dreaming?" He thought.

"Flay?" Kira shouted as he stand up and walk towards the girl.

"Kira?" She said.

"Who's Kira? I don't know him but it just came out from my mouth." She thought looking at the guy walking towards her.

"You, you're not dead?" He asked confused.

"I-I'm very sorry I don't think I've met you before." She said as the teacher look at them angrily.

"Uhmm… I think you two should continue your conversation later, as for now please take your seats." Their teacher said. Kira and the girl walk towards the back. The girl took her seat ehind Kira.

"Flay? Are you Flay?" Sai and Miriallia asked her. Kira looked at her.

"Well, I don't think so. My name's Akari Kazumi." She replied at them then smiled.

"Well, she's nice, too different from Flay." Miriallia thought. Kira sigh.

"Kira are you alright?" Lacus asked him when she saw his worried face.

"Yeah I'm fine, it's just…" He sigh.

"She looks like Flay? The girl you told me you needed to protect am I right?" She asked sadly.

"Yeah" he replied then looked at the girl in his back. When the girl saw him she blushed lightly then smile at him.

"Flay…" he muttered.

Time for their lunch, Kira walk towards the cafeteria with his friends and ex-enemies…well at least their friends now. When they reached the cafeteria they saw the girl from their class sitting alone in one of the tables.

"Look at her she really looked like her. Don't you think?" Miriallia asked Sai who's also looking at the same girl.

"What are you guys saying? Aren't we gonna eat? I'm starving." Yzak said angrily.

"Well you're right I can't forget the face of that girl who tried to kill me once." Dearka said teasingly. Miriallia blushed and look down. Dearka noticed her.

"Hey, I don't mean it like that, I already forgot about that incident." He said apologetically.

"I didn't say anything!" She argues. They stood there when they notice Kira walk towards Akari's table. They all followed him. Cagalli looked at Lacus.

"Are you ok? You look really sad" she asked her worriedly.

"Yeah, of course I am." She said faking a smile as they continue following Kira towards the girl's table.

"Can we sit here with you? I notice that you're alone." Kira said nicely.

"Uhmm…yeah I guess so." She said as she smiles at them. They all took their seats.

"Well I was wondering, do you know me?" Kira asked the girl across him.

"I don't think so." She said as she look at her food.

"Well how did you know my name?" He asked her again.

"I don't know it just came out from my mouth." She said again.

"Anyway I haven't introduced myself yet. I'm Akari Kazumi I'm pleased to meet you all" She said smiling.

"Nope, that's absolutely not her." Dearka smiled then took his smile off when he saw Miriallia glare at him.

"Well, it's really nice to meet you to Akari, I'm Lacus Clyne, you can call me Lacus." Lacus introduced herself then smiled at her.

"I'm Miriallia it's really nice to meet you."

"I'm Cagalli, it's a pleasure to meet you."

"Well it's really nice to meet you too, I'm just new here so I don't have any friends."

"Well, we're all new here too. So you can be our friend." Kira said and smiled at her. Sai just looked at her shocked.

"Yes? Is something wrong?" She asked worriedly when she noticed Sai staring at her.

"No it's nothing you just look like someone I used to know." He said sadly.

"Well do I?" She asked still smiling. "Well I hope we can all be friends." She said and smiled at everyone.

"That's absolutely not her." Dearka, Miriallia, Cagalli and Sai thought at the same time. Kira just smiled at her. Athrun looked at them confused…and Yzak…well he just continued eating his lunch.
