CHAPTER ONE – September first
A new school, new teachers, new faces and another start over...
He had hated it from the moment he had seen the building appear from between the trees in the back of the limo.
That was five minutes ago and now...he downright abominated it. What had his mother been thinking, sending him to a Yevonite school! Not to mention that he had to wear those stodgy uniforms consisting out of grey pants, a white shirt and a red sleeveless v-neck pullover with the emblem of the school –A quill with the symbol of Yevon– embroidered on it. On top of all that a black vest also embroidered with the symbol of the school on the right chest.
As he entered the main hall, he could immediately feel almost every pair of eyes turning his way, as if he had been wearing a big board above his head signalling his entrance. His own footsteps echoed through the entire hall as an unspoken silence grew among the large group of bystanding students. A small portion of his mind wondered why they had fallen silent; had they never seen a hot, handsome blonde guy before? Or was the school that much deprived of good-looking people? He rolled his eyes from side to side in a cool and detached manner before continuing his way down the hall. Apparently the people in this city didn't know that it was very impolite to ogle every newcomer like some sort of brainless idiot.
He passed a blonde guy who was blatantly staring at him with his mouth slightly ajar. What the fuck was wrong with these people?
"Take a picture, it'll last longer." He coldly spoke to the other teen before rounding the corner at the end of the hall.
Sighing in annoyance as he saw that he had come to stand in yet another, even more crowded large hall than the last one, he mentally made himself the promise to sneak out after first period.
He however, did not see the person that was walking towards him with her back to him as she was still talking to a few of her friends in front of her. They bumped against each other, causing her to lose her balance and almost falling over, dropping a few of the books she had been holding. He caught her just in time though, holding her close to his chest.
"Oh my, I'm so sorry!" She quickly apologised and turned around.
He looked at her and found himself staring into the weirdest eyes he had ever seen… one green, one blue… He let his eyes roam over her well-sculpted body; nice tits, curved waist, cute skirt and slender, sexy legs. His lips pursed in silent approval and he admitted to himself that maybe a uniform wasn't such a bad thing after all.
The girl was equally staring at him, enjoying the fact that it was actually a hottie that had prevented her embarrassing fall. His deep blues were undressing her, his sexy lips moist as he passed his tongue over them in silent approval. She could tell that he was the sports-type; from his sun-kissed skin to his deep blonde hair and from the large muscular arms that had held her just a few moments ago to his slim and slender waist. She smiled at him and made him snap out of his momentary stare.
"I'm the one who's sorry—Let me help you with your books." As he was starting to reach down to grab them, she had already hunched in front of him.
"No, that's okay…" She whispered, turning her head to him and slowly coming back up so the back of her skirt touched the front of his pants. She then turned around and smiled at him, "I got it."
He licked his lips again and nodded, "Okay," he huskily whispered, his eyes never leaving her lips. "I was actually trying to find my way around here—"
"Oh! You're new here?" She exclaimed, covering her mouth with her right hand apologetically. "Let's start all over then, shall we?" She giggled and her amusement made him grin. "Welcome to Sint Yunalesca and Zaon high, then," She said and held out a hand to him, "I'm Yuna, president of the student council."
He took the manicured hand she held out and shook it lightly, "Shuyin."
Yuna nodded in acknowledgement and continued, "I guess you need to go see the principal then? I'll show you."
Shuyin gave her his thanks and followed her down the hall after she had waved her friends goodbye. They walked through a couple more halls and up a few stairs before they arrived at a wooden door with the principal's name inscribed on it on a golden plate.
"…So here we are, Shuyin." Yuna softly spoke as she halted in front of the door with her hands on her back.
Shuyin smiled at her and looked at her for a moment before asking, "Are all girls so polite and sweet around here?"
Yuna laughed heartedly at that, "It's always important to make a good first impression." She gave him a mischievous smile and rested her left hand on his right shoulder so she could whisper in his ear; "But it's my duty to make newcomers feel comfortable on their first day, so come and see me at lunch so we can… talk."
She kissed him on his cheek and he could feel the tip of her tongue dart out briefly against his skin, making him purse his lips in appreciation. "Thanks for the invitation, babe."
Yuna chuckled throatily and walked away from him, making sure he was looking at her as she swayed her hips seductively with each step.
Shuyin bit his lips as he looked at her and then shook his head before entering the door with a smile on his face. He could get use to this place…
He sat himself down in the waiting room in front of the headmaster's office, opposite from a girl that was sitting there too. Half of her face went hidden underneath the long brown curtain of her hair as she was reading a book. She had her legs crossed under her grey skirt, and he could see that she had perfectly shaped, tanned thighs. He leaned back against his chair, crossing his arms on his chest and keeping his eyes on her. A smile crossed his lips when she cleared her throat and adjusted her book so now her entire face went hidden behind it.
Shuyin silently grinned to himself, deciding to get this girl's attention to any cost. He cleared his throat in turn and crossed his legs while throwing his left arm behind the chair. He then loudly yawned and threw his head back; partly in annoyance that it was taking the headmaster so long and of course to obtain the girl's attention.
She laid her book open on her right knee resting on her left one and tucked both sides of her long her behind each ear, a small smile on her lips as she shortly glanced at him.
For a moment there Shuyin just stared at her with his mouth slightly ajar, the beauty this girl emitted striking him in the face like he had never experienced it before. And then it was hidden from him again when she picked up her book again and continued her reading.
He grinned again, starting to find a licking to this game of peek-a-boo and deciding to take it to another level.
He stood up and made his way to the showcase standing next to the other door leading to the principal's office and looked at the trophies the school had won. Running a hand through his blond hair, he softly groaned in annoyance when he realised that this showcase contained little sport trophies; most of them from spelling contests, mathematic contests, literature contests and so on... In none of those braches he was really good at... He was slightly beginning to worry if that was all this school was good at…
He shook his head and secretly glanced at the girl. She was looking at him and when she realised that he was watching her too, cleared her throat and resumed her reading.
Shuyin grinned in triumph at that. "Hi," He softly said. "I know you've been looking at me, so stop pretending to read." He chuckled.
She chuckled back and dropped her book in her lap in defeat, before turning her head and giving him an apologetic smile. "Busted…"
For a short three seconds he just stared at her again and he could feel his heartbeat go faster. "You're so beautiful..." He whispered before even realising.
She laughed and frowned, "Excuse me?"
Shuyin blinked and chuckled, "I think the proper response is "Thank you" or maybe just blushing in embarrassment. But I guess it was little sudden."
She giggled, "Alright then, thank you…" She then gave him a questioning look, "I don't believe that I've seen you before?"
He shook his head, "No you haven't, unless you've been to Zanarkand High?"
She smiled again, "No, I must say that I haven't. My name is Lenne."
He cocked his head to the side, "Nice to meet you, Lenne. I'm Shuyin."
"Nice to meet you too, Shuyin." She responded and slightly bent her head in acknowledgement.
The door to the headmaster's office opened and a tall man from behind his forties appeared, wearing a classy three piece suit. Even though he still looked young for his age he was starting to get on the bold side.
Shuyin watched as Lenne stood up and walked to the man and kissed him on his cheek. "Here is the report you wanted, dad." She spoke and handed him a document holder.
"Ah." He took the holder, "Thank you, darling. Now off to class or you will be late."
"Ok, have a good day. It was nice meeting you Shuyin." She gave the astonished blonde a bright, knowing smile and left the waiting room.
"Sorry for the long wait, Mr Ueno. You can step into my office now." The headmaster said while beckoning him to enter his office.
Shuyin kept staring at the door that Lenne left through for a moment before looking back at the headmaster with a slightly confused gaze, silently wondering how something that ugly could produce something that beautiful...
At lunch he followed the massive crowd to the refectory on his own; he hadn't made much contact with his classmates and he had no intention to do so either. This was his final year and the faster he got out of here the better.
As he put his plate down on an empty table, he could feel most of the eyes in the dining-room fixed on him. Not that he cared; he was used getting the attention. He looked around and smiled self-assured and occasionally even waved with the sandwich he was eating.
"Hi, may I join you?"
He looked up and smiled when he saw that it was that girl he had met this morning at the principal's office.
"Sure... Lenne, right?" he asked, acting like had to struggle to remind himself of her name. The truth was that he had been thinking of her for most of the morning and his heart was making a high-jump in his chest.
"Yeah right." She smiled back and then frowned slightly, "Shuyin, right?" she then asked hesitantly
"Yeah right." He grinned at her, hoping that she was maybe playing along and that she hadn't forgotten his name.
She took a seat next to him and threw her long hair back. He watched her doing that and picked up a particular scent. "Jasmine?" he asked, looking at her intensively, causing her to blush.
"Yes. It is a gift from my father." She demurely whispered, "Said that it suited me."
"It does." He softly whispered, still looking at her. She couldn't help but blush harder at that remark. "I like it." He whispered and brushed a strand of hair out of her face.
She looked at him and smiled, "You are talking about the perfume, right?" she asked, shifting her eyes to her plate in a shy, yet pleased manner.
"What do you think?" He hoarsely whispered.
Yeah... what do you guys think of it so far?
