I woke up to feel the morning rays tickling my face. I opened my eyes and yawned. My eyes shut
back closed from the excess of light that entered them. "Bleh. I hate waking up." It was true. I am not a
morning person. Finally, I pushed off my covers and got up, stretched, yawned, and rubbed my eyes. As I
looked around I realized that I was in a new place. "Huh? Where am I?" I got up and looked around the
place. The windows were bare, and so were the baby pink walls. Sunlight was pouring out of the windows
and from the glass door to the balcony. Then I remembered. This was my new room. My family and I had
moved from our old town to a new city. My parents said that this would be a good experience for me and
my younger sister, Ami. I sighed. I didn't like the fact that we had moved. I had to leave behind all my
friends. Sucks, right? Yes it does. I glanced at my clock. And then I flipped. "HONTO?!?! IT'S 7:00
ALREADY???" I screeched. "Amu! Hurry up!" my mom called from downstairs. School starts in 45
minutes. Great. I'm going to be late for my first day of school. Just great. I looked around and rummaged
through the cardboard boxes that littered my floor. So far I only had my bed in the room, as well as a small
dresser next to my bed, a full length mirror, and my desk. Then the rest are in moving boxes. 'I should have
listened to Mama when she told me to unpack' I scolded myself mentally. I grabbed what I needed, headed
to the bathroom, and took a quick 5 minute shower, washed my face, and brushed my teeth. As I returned to
my room I took another look at my clock. 7:09. "Wow. Maybe I will make it on time" I reassured myself I
quickly put on my clothes and my new school uniform .I looked at myself in the mirror and shook my head.
It was way too bland. The plaid, red, pleated skirt was way too…way too...bleh. And the black coat, white
button-down shirt, and the red tie looked too normal and bland. I needed to add a personal touch. I dove
back into my cardboard boxes and found what I was looking for in a matter of seconds. "Thank god Mama
made me label the boxes." I put on my accessories and did a quick once-over in the mirror once again.
"Perfect." I was now wearing leg-warmers, the same red plaid and my skirt, which were held up by little
black belts below my knee, my trade-mark X-clip, a red one, which was holding my bubble-gum pink hair
in a little pump, and two black studded belts around my waist. Now I was looking more like me. I smiled
and then grabbed my bag and ran downstairs for breakfast.
After breakfast, I ran out the door, with plenty of time to get to school. On the way I heard
someone calling me. "Hey you!" 'Huh? Me?' I stopped to look but then decided to keep walking because
no one would have called me, after all we just moved in yesterday. The school was only a few blocks away
and I made it in no time. It was huge! "Woah" I said under my breath. "It's nice, isn't it?" "Huh?" I turned
to see a boy with dark green hair and glasses. "The school. I assume that is what you were talking about."
"Uh. Yeah." "I tried calling you back there, but you kept walking. I'm Kairi. Sanjo Kairi. I live next-door to
you." "Oh. Sorry. I thought that no one knew me here, so no one could be calling me. Oh, and I'm Amu.
Hinamori Amu." He smiled, barely. "It's alright. You're starting Seiyo High?" "Yup. I'm going to be a
sophomore. You?" "I am going to be a junior this year. Well, I should go now, the bell is about to ring.
Don't hesitate to ask if you need anything." "Right. Thanks! Bye Kairi!" I called as he walked off. "Bye
Hinamori!" I sighed. At least I had someone to look to for help. Maybe there were some friendly people
around here. I took a good look around the place. I could see the usual clichés. But aside from that, a few
other people caught my eye. There was one boy, playing basketball. He had long violet hair, and he was
clearly good at sports. Well, basketball at least. Another boy, one with blonde hair, was walking with a
teacher, he looked kind of cute. As he walked by, his eye caught mine, and he smiled. And, my usual
reaction, I blushed. Then I kept observing. There were the other little clumps of people chatting away. One
girl, standing in a corner by herself. She had long, butterscotch curls, they went past her waist. She was
looking down at the ground, all alone. I was about to go up to her, but then I remembered that I was
supposed to go to the main office to get my schedule. "Almost forgot. Baka" I scolded myself. I ran into the
building and through a few hallways until I totally got lost. 'Great.' I thought, I have no idea where the
office is. I sighed heavily and just stood there, looking around. "Do you need help?" For a second I just
stood there, blank.
Then I saw the boy I had seen earlier, the kind one, the one I had blushed for. He had light blonde
hair, pink eyes, and a princely smile. "Uh..Yeah. Could you tell me where the office is? I need my
schedule." "Ah, so you must be new here." "Yes. I just moved here a few days ago." "Right. Come on, I
was on my way to the office anyways." "Alright…" I trailed off. He walked past me as I simply stood there.
He turned back and said, "Come on." He took my hand, and I felt a blush creep onto my face, and he pulled
me through the halls. Finally we stopped at a door and he let go of my hand. He grabbed the knob, twisted
it, and pushed the door. The office wasn't a busy place. A few desks were there, and some people were
working at them, and others were at the mailboxes, and it was fairly quiet. The boy walked up to a desk and
before he could let out a single word, the middle aged woman sitting at the desk spoke up, "Hotori-
hidenka!" 'Hidenka…?' I thought, 'That's kinda weird.' "Ohayo Mimamori-san. I would like the schedule
for this girl here. She's new." He said, with a calm look on his face, as if he did this all the time. He turned
to me and smiled sweetly, and I felt my face slightly warm up. "Hai. Tsukasa-sama is in his office, he has
the schedules." He nodded and replied, "Arigatou". "Come on." he said to me. I followed him silently out
of the office and into a room down the hall. He shut the door behind us and walked up to the figure who had
his back to us. "Tsukasa-san, this girl needs her schedule." The figure turned and gave the boy a reply,
completely ignoring me, "Ah, Tadase-kun! How are you?" "I'm fine uncle, but uh…" I realized that we
didn't even know each others names. "Hinamori. Amu Hinamori." "Right. I'm Tadase. Tadase Hotori." He
turned to the man and said, "Hinamori needs her schedule." The tall, lanky man turned to be. His bright,
yet dark violet eyes sparkled, and his light brown hair shined as the sunlight from the large window behind
him fell on it. He struck a resemblance to Tadase, his hair as in the same style and his face held the same
elegant look. "I see. Amu Hinamori." I nodded nervously. Was something wrong with me? I looked down at
my uniform consciously. "No. Nothing is wrong with your appearance." He smiled. 'Is he a mind reader?!'
He continued smiling and walked over to his desk. He looked through a file filled with papers, and pulled
out one sheet. "Here you go Amu-chan." "Arigatou." I thanked, bowing. "Right, the bell will ring in a few
minutes. You know where your next class is?" "Um, no?" I replied. 'Duh! I'm new, I probably won't have
the whole school memorized.' "Hmmm.." he looked thoughtful. "Tsukasa-san?" Tadase and I turned to see
the small blonde girl at the door. "Mashiro. What brings you here?" "Nothing. I felt like coming up here."
"Right. Can you do me a favor?" "Why not?" "Take Hinamori to her next class. I believe you share the
same class" The girl looked at me, not in a good way. She frowned but agreed to take me to my class. I
followed her out and Tadase followed, but Tsukasa stopped him. "Tadase-kun. Please wait. I need to talk to
I continued following the Mashiro girl. She didn't speak, and neither did I. We walked up to a
classroom on the second floor and she opened the door, walked in, and plopped down in a seat. I followed
her and sat in a seat next to her. "So…" I tried to start a conversation. She completely ignored me. So I gave
up and we sat in silence. Then she spoke up. "You like gag manga?" "Well, I read Gag Manga Biyori.." I
trailed off. Her eyes seemed to spark and she smiled. "Really?" I nodded. "I'm Rima Mashiro. Want to be
friends?" 'Huh? At first she seemed to be cold and unfriendly, but she now wants to be my friend because I
like gag manga? Well, I don't have many friends, and I'm new , so I guess it couldn't hurt.' I must have
looked confused so she explained, "Well, no one I know likes gag manga. And I love it, and since you're
new you could use a friend. And so could I…" she trailed off. 'Well, that explains a lot.' (Rayn: Note the
sarcasm) I smiled weakly and put my right hand forward. "I guess so. I'm Amu Hinamori" She smiled
again and shook it. "Friends Amu-chan?" I grinned, she may be weird but she's friendly, "Friends!" And on
that note the bell rang and people began pouring into the classroom. 'This might not be so bad.' I thought as
I smiled to myself.
I could sense the strong heart waves form that girl. Actually, I could sense them from Tadase and
Mashiro as well. And a few other students, Tsukiyomi and his sister, Souma, Sanjo, Fujisaki. They were
about to get their Heart's Egg soon. 'About time I thought. But we can't let Easter get to them.' I though
grimly. "Tsukasa-san?" I looked up and was surprised to see Tadase standing there. "Huh?" "What is it that
you wanted to talk about?" "Right. Rayn and Tranquility will be coming here in a few days. When they do
come, please make sure they socialize." "I know what Rayn is like, but Tranquility? You've spoken of her,
but I haven't even met her." "Rayn's sister. You'll meet her soon enough. The bell is about to ring. Go."
"Right. Ja ne." I replied with a nod.
When Tadase left, I turned back to the window, looking upon the large field that I had a perfect
view of. The large number of children warmed my heart with the fact that they all have Heart's Eggs, and I
could provide a sanctuary for them. Away from Easter. Easter, I thought. They stole the dreams of
thousands, and used them to get the Embryo. They haven't gotten it yet, but they have gotten many Heart's
Eggs. That's why I made this school, and the Guardians. When I find people fit enough to fill the chairs,
then nothing can let Easter get to any more Heart's Eggs. Then all will be safe….But until then, I have to
protect them all.
Rayn: Okay this is fairly short, but it's much better than the original!
