First days at new schools aren't always as exciting as everyone thought it would be. There would always be the nervousness, the tension between you and the old pips, and most of all is trying to blend in with the new crowd.
Luckily, Sora Hikari had gotten used to these first day era since he always transfer schools. Sora's mom, Aerith, is a really hard working woman since it's just her and Sora living together. Aerith's husband, Zack, died years ago when Sora was just five due to a car accident. So since Aerith's on her own, she has to work really hard for Sora's needs.
The result of Aerith's hard works however, leaves her and Sora to move from one place to another for her company always promotes her and assigns her to a new locations.
Sora hated moving. But never once had he mentioned this to mother for he knew that someday, he and his mom would find a place where they could settle in for good. He just hopes that when that time comes, his mom wouldn't work as hard as before, so that they wouldn't have to move again.
Driving on the roads of Twilight, Sora's seated at the passenger seat, staring at the window, with his earphones plugged on. "Sora…" He heard his mom say. He looked at the driver's seat and removed his left earphone. "Yes?" Sora asked sweetly.
Aerith brushed Sora's hair and caressed his cheek. "Are you alright?"
Sora merely chuckled at this. "Why wouldn't be I, mom?" Aerith removed her hand from Sora's cheek and placed it back on the steering wheel. "It's just… it's your first day again, sweetie." Aerith stated. "Not only that, it's also the middle of the semester."
"I'm okay, mom." Sora smiled, assuring. "Besides. I've lived my whole life transferring schools, so what's there to worry about?" Aerith shook her head with a smile. She stopped her car and said, "We're here." Sora looked out is window and saw a huge building with a dark blue sign that says 'Twilight High'. Sora suddenly felt nervous and excited but he shrugged those things away.
He looked back at his mom and said, "Mom, I have a question."
"Yes?" Aerith asked.
"Why did you drive me to school anyway, when I can just walk on my own?" Sora asked.
"It's your first day again, Sora and I'm worried about you." Aerith stated. "I just wanted you to enjoy this school since it'll be your school for long time."
"Whatcha' mean by that?" Sora asked. Aerith smiled and placed a hand on Sora's shoulder. "It means that you and I are gonna stay here for good."
"Really?" Sora's eyes widened. "We're… we're not gonna move again?" Sora asked enthusiastically. "As in we're gonna stay here permanently?"
Aerith nodded. "I told my company that you and I need to settle down now. It's been ten years since we've been moving so I decided why not rest for a while." Aerith said. "My company agreed with my decision that's why they assigned me here in Twilight Town knowing that I would do good here without being assigned to a bigger company."
"But why didn't you tell me this earlier?" Sora asked. "I could've put a smile on when we first arrived here."
Aerith giggled. "I'm sorry, honey. But I wanted to keep it a surprise 'til the day of your first day in class." Aerith said. "And look, my plan worked. I made you happy on your first day of school."
Sora smiled. "Thanks mom." Sora kissed his mother's cheek and stepped out of the car. "Bye Mom! I'll see ya later!" Sora said before closing the door. "Bye sweetie!"
Once his mom left, Sora turned to the building behind him and walked inside. Sora pulled out a paper from his bag, which contains his class number, schedule and locker number, as he walked towards the locker area.
"Now… let's see…" Sora said as he examined the paper. "My locker is… number 158." Sora shoved the paper inside his pocket and went to locker 158. He placed some things he doesn't need in there and closed his locker. He took his paper again and read his schedule. "Okay… so first, I have homeroom…" He told himself. "And my class is 2-B." Sora stated.
Sora walked along the corridors silently, studying each room he passed by. Once he found his room, he knocked on it. "One moment please…" Sora heard a guys say. The door in front of Sora opened and out came a tall, blonde, mullet haired man.
"Hello there." The man greeted cheerfully.
"G-Good Morning, S-Sir." Sora said, nervously. "A-are you Sir Demyx?"
"Yup." Demyx said. "And you are?"
"Sora, sir." Sora stated. "Sora Hikari."
"Ahh Sora." Demyx said as realization hit him. "C'mon then we've been expecting you." Demyx opened the door further and led Sora inside. "Okay class…I'd like you all to meet Sora Hikari." Demyx said. "Now I guess some of you are wondering why Sora join us during this time of year right?"
"Yes!" Some of Demyx's students said.
"Well… you guys can just ask him that on your own since it's something personal about Mr. Hikari here." Demyx said "In the mean time, Sora…" Demyx looked at the said boy. "Why don't you sit over there next to Mr. Hihara?"
Sora looked to where Demyx's pointing and saw a blonde haired boy with sky blue eyes and a smile that could melt anyone's heart. Sora blushed as he realized that he was staring at the boy. "Sora?" Demyx called for his attention.
Sora snapped out from his gaze and looked at his teacher. "I'm sorry sir." Sora bowed apologetically and went to his sit. Once Sora was already settled in his sit, the blonde boy beside him looked at him and said, "Hi, I'm Roxas!" He said cheerfully and held out a hand for Sora.
"S-Sora." Sora said as he shook Roxas's hand nervously. Roxas gently took his hand back and said, "I guess we're officially friends then, huh?"
"I-I guess." Sora said in a low tone.
"Don't worry, I'm sure you'll love it here in T. High." Roxas smiled. Sora blushed again. "Thanks…" He smiled back.
"Okay! Settle down people." Demyx said. Immediately, the whole homeroom went silent. "It Music time now. Please keep away any unnecessary things and prepare yourself for Music."
"Yes!" The class said in chorus.
"Since we have a new student today, why don't we start off with a review?" Demyx said. "So music is…"
Sora's next classes were the same as Demyx's Music class. They would start off with a review and when Sora had finally caught off with the lesson, the teacher will proceed with his current lesson.
The bell rang, telling the students that it's already lunch time. Immediately, all of Sora's classmates sprung outside except for one.
"C'mon Sora." Roxas said as he stood beside Sora's table and slung his bag on his right shoulder. "Let's have lunch together." Sora flashed a smile at Roxas, causing the latter to blush and said, "Okay!"
Sora grabbed his bag and slung it to his shoulder. He stood up and said, "Let's go." He grabbed Roxas's hand, causing Roxas's to blushed harder, and dragged the blonde outside.
"Y-Yeah…" Roxas nodded.
