Mikan's POV

"Dear My Friend
Every day & night Always be with you
Dear My Friend
Every day & night Always be with you

Hanashitemo mada mada tarinai mama
Yuuyake ga machi wo someteyuku

Omou youni naka naka ikanai..tte
Kidzuitara issho ni naiteita

Koi mo yume mo hana mo niji mo kaze mo
Zenbu tsukamou yo

DAIJOUBU!
Genki dashite watashi ga soba ni iru kara
Kyou no MIZU nayamu yori ima norikoete
DAIJOUBU!
Mayowanaide mada minu mirai he to mukatte
Zutto aruite yukou.

Dear My Friend
Every day & night Always be with me
Dear My Friend
Every day & night Always be with me

Watashi datte iro iro nayamu kedo

Miagereba kira kira ichibanboshi
Kirei da ne futo egao koboreta

Ai mo kizu mo kako mo ima mo ashita mo

DAIJOUBU!
Yuuki dasu yo watashi ha hitori janai kara

Aseranaide negai wo hitotsuzutsu kanaete

Gonen go juunen go ha dounatteru kana…?

Mayowanaide mada minu mirai he to mukatte
Zutto aruite yukou

Dear My Friend
Every day & night Always be with you
Dear My Friend

The crowd beneath us cheered. I let go of my guitar, letting the beats of perspiration roll down my forehead. I gasp for air as that stone in my heart finally dropped. This was Nippon Budokan, Japan's top class indoor stadium, where YUI and everyone has once stood on. I still can't believe my luck, we're standing on the same floor as them… All these events happened too sudden, it has not even been registered in my mind yet. . My heart pounds. I looked up… The crowd was actually cheering for me… For me. I turned around stared at Hotaru, a weak smile was my reply. Relief overwhelmed me… Suddenly, everything starts to seem so…so… blur?

"Mikan Sakura! I swear if you don't wake up this instant! This'll be the 4th time you're late this week, and you'll go without dinner tonight!"

F***.

Answer me, who can live without dinner? Well, I can't. But I mean, food is AWESOME! It gives you strength and energy! And it feels great to not get fat even if you eat all you want.

"Mikan! In 5 minutes you're not down here, you are dead meat!" that so damn familiar voice rang.

OH! HI! I forgot to introduce myself. I'm Mikan Sakura! I'm not very tall, not very slim too. I am absolutely immune to hot guys no matter how hot they are. I've got chocolate coloured hair and brown eyes that go perfectly with it. Most importantly, I am 14 this year. My dream… you just saw, be a singer. Though, it's impossible, cuz in Japan, you have to get in Gakuen Alice, the music school before your music career is carved. You think it's that easy to get into the music industry in Japan! Dream on manz! It's not like you can upload random videos of yourself singing baa baa black sheep and get talent spotted by some talent scout like… what's his name again? Justina Baby? Juice Babe? Oh right! Justin Bieber. Easy life this kiddo has.

I brushed my teeth, put on my uniform and was soon zooming to the 5- minute sprint away school of mine, Sakuragaoka. It's not a really famous school… but at least, it has a special bond with Gakuen Alice. Their students come over every year to interact with us and at the same time, students from out school get talent spotted and you're offered SCHOLARSHIP. OMG. I want it.

And today, was the day the Gakuen Alice students were coming. I wonder how they are like? They must be real pretty, and real handsome people. Their voices must be like an angels too! *sigh* I wanna be like them, rich, famous… the dream life of a teen. But I heard this year, there are gonna be many hotshots… Wonder who they are? (Predict people, predict!)

~~at school~~

"Mikan, you're early." That sarcasm hit me right there Hotaru.

Hotaru's my best friend and deskie. She's the awesomest genius you can find anywhere… I wonder why that brain of her's so ginormous.

Seeing my friends have not reached yet, I walked out to the sakura tree planted at the backyard, climbed onto the sturdiest branch and laid down. Sakura petals fell on my skirt randomly, oh right, isn't March the flower viewing season? I plugged my i-pod earphones in (Mikan may be in some weird RANDOM school but she's rich alright) and blast it to the max. Like right on cue, my current fave song appeared.

According to you- Orianthi

According to you

I'm stupid,

I'm useless,

I can't do anything right.

According to you

I'm difficult,

hard to please,

forever changing my mind.

I'm a mess in a dress,

Can't show up on time,

Even if it would save my life.

According to you. According to you.

But according to him

I'm beautiful,

Incredible,

he can't get me out of his head.

According to him

I'm funny,

Irresistible,

Everything he ever wanted.

Everything is opposite,

I don't feel like stopping it,

So baby tell me what I got to lose.

He's into me for everything I'm not,

According to you.

According to you

I'm boring,

I'm moody,

You can't take me any place.

According to you

I suck at telling jokes cause I always give it away.

I'm the girl with the worst attention span;

You're the boy who puts up with it.

According to you. According to you.

But according to him

I'm beautiful,

Incredible,

[ Orianthi Lyrics are found on .com ]

He can't get me out of his head.

According to him

I'm funny,

Irresistible,

Everything he ever wanted.

Everything is opposite,

I don't feel like stopping it,

So baby tell me what I got to lose.

He's into me for everything I'm not,

According to you.

I need to feel appreciated,

Like I'm not hated. oh- no-.

Why can't you see me through his eyes?

It's too bad you're making me decide.

According to me

You're stupid,

You're useless,

You can't do anything right.

But according to him

I'm beautiful,

Incredible,

He can't get me out of his head.

According to him

I'm funny,

Irresistible,

Everything he ever wanted.

Everything is opposite,

I don't feel like stopping it,

Baby tell me what I got to lose.

He's into me for everything I'm not,

According to you.

According to you.

According to you

I'm stupid,

I'm useless,

I can't do anything right.

AH~~ this song, is just awesome. Wait, why do I feel there's someone watching me? I opened my eyes and looked around. Just who was there?

~~Morning Assembly~~

Finally, it's time to see the people from Gakuen Alice. For some reason, I feel excited. I can't wait to see who my partner is… Hope he/she is nice…

"Fujisaki Naoko with Sumire Shouda"

"Yamamoto Fuji with Misaka Kinomoto"

"Imai Hotaru with Ruka Nogi"

"Sakura Mikan with Natsume Hyuuga"

Suddenly, the whole chattering stopped. This silence is awkward… What's with this dark aura staring down my back? I grudgingly turned around… only to see the whole girl population stare at me with this killing aura. Come on, what's with this hostile treatment all of the sudden? Is this Natsume Hyuuga really that… that….

"Mikan, this Natsume Hyuuga guy, FYI, isn't your ordinary japanese guy. He's the voted 'The most wanted to get hugged by girls' guy, so it's best if you…"

Hotaru for once… said something useful…

SHIT.

"Oi. Sakura, you aren't gonna show me around?"

I turned, suddenly, in front of me stood this real gotta admit, hot looking guy with red crimson eyes and dark raven hair. His muscles were like, OMG! And in all, he's HOT. Explains, *shivers* why the girls are all staring at me. But me, being me, am after all, immune to guys.

"Hajime mashite, Watashi no namae wa Mikan Sakura desu~~ Dozu yoroshiku kudasai. " I said with a beam.

"Hn. You already know my name..." That guy said.

*silence*

Erm. Hello? I'm talking NICELY to you. At least have some basic courtesy!

"So…where do you wanna go?" I asked with the sweetest voice, seriously this guy's look and character contrast like totally off. OMG. Why is it do hard to start a conversation with this guy? Just what is his damn freaking problem?

"Ano… Which singers do you like? Inculde the guitarists too. Guitars are awesome, aren't they?"

"They are, indeed. Especially MJ's guitarist, Orianthi Panagaris" He said.

"You like her too? She's so cool! She's like a guitar princess! Oh have you seen her MV with Steve Vai, Highly Strung? It's SO KICK-ASS!" I said with the utmost excitement. Well, at least the silence is broken. This Natsume guy seems to have loosened up… a little…

Ruka's POV

"Koko, Natsume looks like as if he has found his new play toy, hasn't he?"

I asked Koko playfully, apparently, Imai-san abandoned me for the restroom

-.-

"Yeah~ Poor girl doesn't even know who he is?" Koko looked surprised, "But indeed the looks of an angel and figure of never seen before, is definitely gonna attract the devil, opposites attract, don't they, Ruka-kun"

"Poor thing, she doesn't know what she's in for…" A mature voice said.

Koko and I turned around.

"Tsubasa-Senpai. Ohayo Gozaimasu!"
