Yay, a Prince of Tennis fanfic! This one is about Sakuno in college and her meeting Fuji. I don't know how long this one will be, but I will finish it nicely. -wink- Read on for their chance meeting!
Sakuno was hopelessly lost and overwhelmed. At 12 o'clock, she was late and standing in a mist of students flocking on campus. Her cheeks pink, she looked around for some sort of guidance and she'd asked a passerby for the main office/registration area. Though they pointed out the direction, she'd still managed to get lost. Biting her lip in frustration, she fingered a long strand of hair while once again looking at the student guide booklet. She inwardly groaned while she scanned the map.
"Need help?" Sakuno looked up to face a tall, smiling, handsome, young man. His hair was light brown and seemed to be tussled by the wind. His smile was unwavering as he looked down at the petite girl.
"Ano… I'm trying to find my way to the registration office."
"Well then, I'll escort you there", the stranger offered quickly. Sakuno looked up to face him and noticed now a familiarity about the stranger.
"Do I know you from somewhere?" Sakuno inquired tentatively.
"I don't know, do you?" the man leaned down closer, flashing cerulean eyes. Sakuno was temporarily stunned by his proximity, but soon collected her wits, searching her brain.
However, it only took about two seconds to identify him, "Fuji-senpai!"
"And Ryuuzaki-chan. So nice to see you again. Attending university, I suppose?" Fuji said, more of a statement than a question.
"Hai" Sakuno answered.
"Well, let's get going then" he said turning and beckoning her to follow him. Sakuno was just about to ask where when she remembered she was trying to get registered into college.
"So" Fugj started , breaking the silence after a few minutes. "How are you? And Ryuuzaki-sensei? I haven't seen her in a while."
"Oh, we're fine. And yourself?" Sakuno replied politely.
"Just splendid" Fuji responded, broadening his smile. Once they'd set Sakuno up in the office, she received her dorm info.
"Ah, room 301 in XXX Hall. Let's go see your dorm, shall we?" and with that Fuji whisked Sakuno away, leaving the office and heading south. After another five minutes of walking and a question from Fuji about how she liked the school's architecture, Sakuno was standing in the doorway of her new room. The walls were a rose color and the room was quite spacious and Sakuno was happy at once.
Fuji, who was kindly holding her two luggage bags, asked, "How do you like it?"
"It's wonderful!" Sakuno exclaimed, obviously satisfied.
"I'm glad you like it" Fuji said and followed her into the room.
"Ah, gomen, Fuji-senpai! I hope you aren't late for class!" Sakuno apologized.
"Oh no, class doesn't start for the next ten minutes. It was my lunch break. I guess I better get going" Fuji said, glancing at his wristwatch.
"It was really nice seeing you again, Ryuuzaki-chan", Fuji added, flashing her a broad smile. "Don't worry, you'll see me again." And instantly, Fuji vanished from her room to the hallway.
Ooo, Fuji! Yummy... I mean yay! Next chapter, Ryoma's whereabouts, Fuji shows Sakuno around, and maybe even lunch in a cafe... Now if you would just hit that 'Go' button. -smiles prettily-
