I've decided to do a Revolutionary Girl Utena story because 1) I was bored and 2) there wasn't a whole lot of Utena stories. Anyway, this story will go based on the anime story line and I hope it goes well as the story continues. Enjoy!
Today was another day of the new term in Ohtori Academy. A young girl was walking down the hall with her long green hair, which trailed down to touch the back of her upper thighs with a brown ribbon tied on a piece of her hair on the left side of her face, gently moving as she walked down the hall. Unlike all of the female students, she wasn't wearing the standard girl uniform. She was wearing a white jacket with red lines around the jacket and cuffs with gold cuff links, a pair of light green pants, and a pair of short black shoes.
As she was walking, she heard a few students mumbled, "Look there she is!"
"It's Saya Saionji, the sister of Kyouichi Saionji!"
"She's so lucky to be related to someone who is so cool!"
Saya just sighed a bit and rolled her purple eyes as she continued walking, completely ignoring the other students. "Can't I just once go through my day without hearing all of this?" She asked herself.
Suddenly, she heard some cheers coming from the basketball court as she continued down her path. As she was getting closer to the noise, she noticed a lot of girls were gathered around the court. 'What got their attention?' Saya wondered before she noticed a girl with long pink hair playing against the whole boys' basketball team by herself.
'She's good.' She thought as the pink-haired girl was dodging all the boys and shooting the basketball through the hoop. All of the girls cheered as they made their way towards the girl who was walking away from the court.
"Great. She aced us again." One of the boys said.
'Again? She beat them before?' Saya asked herself as she saw the girls surrounding the pink-haired girl.
"Miss Utena! You can use my towel!" One of the girl exclaimed.
"Sure, sure. It's your turn." Utena said.
"Utena huh?" Saya wondered before shrugging her shoulders and walked away. "Never heard of her."
Saya was swimming in the pool with the school's swimsuit as her swimwear. She likes to swim because not only it is a good way to stay in shape, it's also very relaxing especially when she needs some time to herself. It is because of her love for swimming, she is the captain of the Ohtori Academy's Water Polo team. After she was done with her 10 laps, she laid her back and drifted away in the pool. "Nothing like a good swim to start the day." She said to herself.
"I thought I might find you here, Saya." A voiced called out, causing Saya to lift her head to see a handsome male with long red hair and dark blue-green eyes who she knew all too well.
She smiled and said, "Well, well. If it isn't Touga Kiryuu. To what do I owe this visit?"
"I came to tell you that we're having a student council meeting and I need your help finding your brother." Touga said as Saya was getting out of the pool. Oh, did I forget to mention that Saya Saionji is also a part of the Student Council along with Touga and Saionji. The Student Council practically run the school, even the principal has complete trusts with any decision they make.
"A student council meeting huh?"
Saya sighed to herself. "Alright, let me get changed." Saya said before walking into the dressing room. After a few minutes, she walked out of the room with her uniform on and her ribbon on with her hair semi-dry. "Now, let's go find my brother."
Utena was leaning by an open window as she was looking at the rose crest ring she had on her left ring finger. "Why does the scent of roses always make me think of the past?" She asked herself. She turned attention away from the ring when she noticed two people were standing and talking outside the rose garden. "Hmm? What's going on?"
"Lover's quarrel? They should do that where no one has to see it!" She said before she saw the boy with long green hair just slapped the girl across the face. Utena's eyes glared at the sight. "Whoa, hold it. That's going a little too far."
The boy was about to slap her again when another hand grabbed the guy's wrist, stopping him from striking the girl again.
"Thank goodness." Utena said to herself, sighing in relief. She looked back at the person who grabbed the other boy's hand, a boy with long red hair, dark blue-green eyes, and wearing the same uniform as the other boy. Accompanying the boy was a beautiful girl with long green hair with a brown ribbon tied on a piece of her hair, purple eyes, and was wearing the same uniform as the other two but it was a girl version. The green-haired girl was checking on the other girl.
"Utena!" A girl screamed out her name and jumped on her back, causing Utena to lean over the window a bit.
"Agh! Wakaba! You're heavy!" Utena cried out.
"This is for ditching me this morning! Deal with it!" Wakaba said with a giggled.
"Oh right, sorry." Utena said when she just remembered that she was supposed to meet Wakaba by the bridge on their way to school. However, she left early in the morning and completely forgot about it until now.
"Oh, it's Saionji!" Wakaba exclaimed when she looked down from the window.
"Saionji?" Utena asked.
"Don't you know about Saionji?"
"Oh? He's famous, huh? I recognize the guy in front of him. That's Touga Kiryuu, the student council president."
"Yup! And the guy next to him is the vice president! Kyouichi Saionji!"
"And the two girls?"
"Oh, the girl with the purple hair is Anthy Himemiya and the girl with green hair is Saionji's twin sister, Saya Saionji."
"Anthy Himemiya and Saya Saionji..."
"Anthy's weird. Just keeps to herself and takes care of the roses. We've got her in our class for this term. Saya is the most popular girl in her class and all the boys want her since she's smart, beautiful, and very athletic." Wakaba explained.
"Hmm..." The girls watched Touga and Saya walking away from Saionji and Anthy. "So, is Saionji going out with Himemiya or what?" Utena asked.
"No way! Someone as cool as Saionji would never fall for a girl like that! They're just together because they're both on the student council."
Utena smirked and asked, "So, is that the type you fall for, Wakaba?"
She noticed Wakaba's face was turning red before she hugged Utena to death.
"Oh, wow! Are you jealous? Don't worry! You'll always be my true love, Utena! You're way cooler than any of those guys can be!"
"You called me out here on short notice, my dear council members." Saionji said.
"Saionji, we who wear the rose seal are all chosen members." A boy with blue hair, Miki Kaoru, said as he was writing in his notebook.
"And we don't want you to forget the most important rule we must follow." The girl with orange hair, Juri Arisugawa, continued.
"Saionji, your treatment of the Bride recently...is causing us some concern..." Touga said.
"Oh? Is that so?" Saionji asked.
"Brother, it is true you are currently engaged to her, but that doesn't mean you're free to treat her as you please." Saya said, causing Miki to stop writing.
"As he pleases..." Miki mumbled.
"As he pleases." Juri said.
"Don't abuse the Bride, Saionji. The student council exists by the will of End of the World. If they learn of this, they won't let it go lightly." Touga said.
Saionji chuckled and said, "Mind your own business." He brought Anthy closer to him. "The Bride and I are just a happy pair of lovebirds. We don't want you meddling in our affairs."
"Lovebirds..." Saya and Miki mumbled.
"For now I am...Master Saionji's Bride. I will do whatever Master Saionji tells me to do." Anthy said.
"See how nice a couple we are? And if you're so concerned about the rules of the rose seal...then you may follow them and duel with me for the Bride. My fellow council members." Saionji said.
"Don't forget that a new Duelist will soon be here..." Touga said.
"I look forward to seeing who will challenge me." Saionji chuckled while walking away with Anthy.
Saya and Touga were sitting under a tree, talking about what happened during the meeting. "I can't believe my brother can be such a jerk!" Saya exclaimed.
"Well, it's not like we asked him to be engaged with the Rose Bride. You should know that." Touga said while looking at the distance.
Saya sighed to herself as she said, "You know what Touga?"
"What is it?" He turned his attention to her.
"Sometimes I wish things were the same, back when the three of us were kids." Saya's eyes widen when she felt Touga's arms around her body.
"We can't change the way Saionji is now. No matter how much we want to." Saya sighed before she placed her head on top of his chest. "Right."
After a while, both of them stood on their feet. "We should get going. His match is about to start." Touga stated.
"Right." Saya agreed.
Touga and Saya walked to a place where they can see the dueling arena. They stood side by side with opera-like binoculars in their hands. With them, they were able to watch the match from a distance. Saya's eyes widen a bit when she noticed a familiar girl standing in the arena with a kendo practice stick in her hand.
"I know that girl..." She whispered.
"Did you say something, Saya?" Touga asked.
"That girl…I saw her at school today. I believe her name is Utena." She replied. 'Utena is Saionji's challenger...how can that be? She's not in the student council, so could she have a rose seal?' She asked herself.
"How can a castle float in mid-air?" Utena asked herself as she was awe-struck by the castle in front of her.
"Oh, yes. You've never seen the castle before, have you?" Saionji asked as he appeared in the arena.
"What is that thing? I couldn't see it from outside the forest." Utena stated.
"A kind of mirage. Think of it as a trick of the light."
"Never mind that. I'm surprised that a person like you who isn't in the student council wears the rose seal."
"One of these." Saionji showed the rose crest ring to Utena.
Utena's eyes widen at the ring. "That ring!"
"Anthy! Prepare us!" Anthy came out, wearing a red sleeveless dress with a sea green fringe at the edge of the bodice and two separate cuffs worn as if they were bracelets. In her hands were two roses, a green rose and a white rose. She placed the green rose on Saionji's chest and turned towards Utena.
"Anthy, what are you doing here?" Utena asked.
"It's the Bride's place to be here, and so she's here." Saionji stated.
"Bride?" Anthy placed the white rose on Utena's chest. 'This scent…It's the same. The same scent that he had…' Utena thought to herself as a memory of her prince, the one who gave her the ring, flashed before her eyes.
"If the rose is knocked off your chest, you lose the duel. Good luck." Anthy said with a smile.
Then out of nowhere, Saionji walked up and slapped Anthy on her cheek, causing her to fall on the ground.
"What are you doing?!" Utena shouted after she kneeled by Anthy.
"How dare you, Anthy! You are the Rose Bride! That means you belong to me! What's the meaning of you wishing good luck to someone else?!" Saionji asked.
"Forgive me, Saionji, my master." Anthy said as she pulled herself up with Utena's help.
"Are you nuts?! Why would you take that from this guy?!" Utena exclaimed.
"Because Master Saionji is the current champion Duelist. I have to do whatever he wants me to." Anthy explained.
"What do you mean? You're not his girlfriend?" Utena turned her attention at Saionji.
"Come. Let's begin." Saionji ordered.
Utena stood up as she said to herself, "I don't know what's going on here, but I just have to beat him, right?" Utena walked to her place.
"Rose of the noble castle. Power of Dios that sleeps within me. Heed your master and come forth!" Anthy chanted and leaned back slightly as the bright light on her chest began to grow.
"What's this? Another trick of a light?" Utena asked herself.
Anthy leaned into Saionji's arms; a handle of a sword came out of their chest. "Grant me to power to bring the world revolution!" Saionji shouted as he pulled the sword out all the way and got into a fighting stance.
They both charged at each other, they blocked most of each other's attacks. "You're pretty good...for a girl! So, trying to be the prince who saves damsels in distress?" Saionji mocked.
"Well..." He smirked and hacked away another piece of Utena's sword.
"Wait a minute...That trick sword...Is it real?" Utena asked.
"I'm shocked. You challenge the Sword of Dios with a useless wooden practices sword?" Saionji frowned slightly.
"The Sword of Dios?" Utena whispered before looking at Anthy who had an emotionless face.
"You don't know about the Sword of Dios? Who are you? Now you're got me interested." Saionji smirked.
"This duel isn't over yet!"
"Quite right. If you wish...I'll cut that rose from your chest with a single stroke. You had the courage to come and face me, after all. The prince on a white horse, here to save her princess!" Saionji said before the both of them charged each other with both of their weapons, collided in the blinding light.
"Impossible!" Saionji exclaimed as he looked at his rose petals falling into the ground. "I...I lost?" He fell down on his knees in despair before looking at Anthy. "Anthy!"
"Cheer up, Saionji...my schoolmate." Anthy replied as if she never knew him, causing him to gasp.
"Well, an unexpected development." Touga said.
"I think she's in the Academy's middle school." Saya said.
"Oh yes, baby..." Saya turned to Touga. "You've lit the fire to my heart." He smirked without knowing that Saya had a sad look on her face and walked away.
"How can I be so stupid?" Saya muttered to herself. "I guess I'm nothing more than a friend to him."
"Man, this has been one truly weird day." A voice was heard, causing Saya to stop behind a pillar to see Utena stepping out of the arena. "What was all that about? Better just forget about it."
Before Utena could continue on, she noticed Anthy was standing in front of her, in her school uniform instead the red dress, with a smile on her face. "You…"
"I've been waiting for you, Miss Utena." Anthy stated. "I am the Rose Bride. From this day forward, I belong to you."
"What the…" Saya was shocked at what she was seeing. "I've never seen Anthy look so…so happy." She smiled a bit. 'Maybe it's a good thing that Utena won. But how long can she keep it up?'
