Authors Notes: I DO not own OHSHC or any of it's characters
This chapter is longer than the others and I hope that's ok. I can't be certain if the rest of the chapters will start being this long or go back to being short. Hope it's all ok ^_^
Andre spotted Kyouya and Tamaki as she looked over the class and noticed they were near the windows towards the back of class, to make things even better, there was an empty seat in the row behind them. She walked over and sat down, removing the dark blue messenger bag off of her shoulder and setting it between her seat and the wall. The teacher began to talk and Tamaki turned back in his chair with a huge grin on his face.
"Hello there Suoh-chan?" She asked, a questioning tone entering her voice as she said his name and the honorific that followed.
"Tamaki will be just fine by him, and you may call me Ootori-san or Kyouya-san, your choice." Kyouya explained, though he didn't look up from his notebook as he took notes.
Tamaki nodded happily and was about to speak again when the teacher called out to him to pay attention. He smiled and turned around to begin paying attention, though he kept squirming and bouncing his legs all throughout class. Andre watched this for a few seconds before shaking her head, a slight smile on her face, before pulling a sleek navy blue computer out of her bag and placed it on her desk. There was a black rose with silver outline on the top of the lid. Kyouya noticed this but said nothing as she opened her laptop and began taking notes from the teacher's lecture without another word. Therefore, that was how things went until the lunch break.
"Come on Andre! We have to hurry to be sure to get good seats." Tamaki suddenly yelled excitedly, grabbing Andre's hand and pulling her out of her seat and into the hall. She tried fighting him, looking back at her bag and laptop, seeing Kyouya sigh and gather them up for her before she was pulled through the doorway.
"Tamaki, what are you talking about?" She asked as she realized it was pointless to argue, she had a look of nervousness on her face as he dragged her quickly to the cafeteria.
When they arrived and were in line for their food, Tamaki smiled and pointed out all the different foods, giving her a lesson about each and every one of them. He was so excited to be teaching her all this, she sighed and listened, not having the heart to tell him she already knew all of this. She smiled gratefully a few minutes later when Kyouya walked up beside her, holding her bag. She took it and put it on her shoulder, as Tamaki looked at them confused.
"Kyouya...why do you have her bag?" He asked before a look of happy enlightenment came upon his face as he thrust his finger up into the air and shouted. "I see now!" He exclaimed, before pointing a finger to Andre. "You were so excited to see what we serve for lunch here, you just had to come and learn all you could but forgot your bag." His face fell and he shook his head, "You really should be more careful. You could have at least waited until you gathered your things you know." He explained, as if chastising her.
Andre frowned and looked down at her feet, "I'm sorry; I just knew you really wanted to show me this, so I didn't know how to tell you I forgot my things." She said quietly.
"Aaaaaahhhhh, forgive him Tamaki-sempai please?" One girl from behind them suddenly cried out.
"He's sooo cute. It's ok Black-chan, isn't it okay Tamaki?" Another asked.
Tamaki, Kyouya and Andre all looked over to see a group of girls standing there, looks of Moe on their faces and some even crying. Kyouya pushed his glasses up his nose. "Interesting, it seems Andre has become quite popular." Kyouya thought. Tamaki smiled and pounced on Andre, hugging her tightly.
"Don't worry, I forgive you!" He shouted.
Andre just stood there in Tamaki's embrace, dumbstruck for a second before she smiled at him gratefully, pulled out of the embrace and bowed her head. "Thank you Tamaki." Then she turned to Kyouya and tilted her head to the side, questioningly. She wondered what the glint in his eye was for but decided better than to bring it up.
"I don't think I'll pick out anything good... I like really sweet things or salty flavoring, but nothing spicy or sour." She said instead, looking down at the floor and twisting her left leg back and forth uncertainly, "I know I'm being a pest for asking, but..." She looked up at him with sad eyes and bit her lip. "Could you maybe help me pick something good out?" She asked, biting her lower lip harder to keep from smiling as she heard even more cries of moe from the girls around them.
Multiple girls came up carrying different plates of different types of food, suggesting one or the other and Andre looked at them all guiltily.
"You girls didn't need to do that for me..." She said quietly before smiling gratefully. "But thank you all the same, I'll do my best to enjoy every last bite. After all, how could I not appreciate your thoughtfulness?" She continued as she took their food and went to pay for it.
Kyouya stood there with a shadow king smirk on his face and Tamaki looked on dumbstruck as he saw how well Andre had played that before jumping up and down and rushing over to Andre, wrapping his arms around her shoulder, he smiled from ear to ear and was nearly jumping up and down.
"Andre Andre! I just had the best idea ever!" He exclaimed. "How about you join our club!" He asked, moving in front of her and looking at her with puppy dog eyes. "Pretty pretty please?" He asked, his lower lip trembling in fear that she would reject the idea.
Kyouya grabbed Tamaki's and his trays of food and followed as Tamaki and Andre headed for a seat. Andre instantly looked pleased with herself.
"What kind of club is it?" She asked.
"Why, it's the host club of course!" Tamaki said excitedly when it seemed she'd say yes, stars dancing in his eyes.
She frowned and came to a stop before plopping down in the seat near her and placed her tray down sadly.
"A host club? But I'd be useless in a host club. Nobody would want to come visit me." She sat quietly, looking down at her hands in her lap.
Kyouya watched this exchange between them, Tamaki's face fell and he was about to say something when a bunch of girls crowded around Andre.
"What are you talking about?" One asked
"Of course we'd come see you." Another assured her
"But why? My Japanese is horrible and I can only speak English truly fluently. It's taking everything I have to keep up with this conversation." Andre said looking at them all sadly.
That was what did it, all throughout the cafeteria; cries of moe could be heard.
"We don't mind speaking English for you." One girl said in fluent English, rather than Japanese.
"I couldn't trouble you girls like that!" Andre exclaimed, looking up at them all.
Hikaru, Kaoru and Haruhi walked up to them and sat down, Kyouya and Tamaki finally sitting down themselves as they watched this play out. Haruhi was confused as to what was going on, Kaoru and Hikaru smiled knowing smiles, Tamaki watched and was crying tears of moe himself and Kyouya watched on with a smirk as the light glinted off his glasses.
"What if you girls taught her, ne?" Hunny asked as he and Mori came to join.
All the girls suddenly began clamoring that they would love to help her become better at Japanese and Andre smiled sheepishly at all the attention.
"All right, all right, I'll join the host club. Just because it seems you girls are so nice and want to help me. Thank you so much." Andre said, standing and bowing gratefully. More outcries of moe before the girls went back to their eating and Andre sat back down, smiling to herself and then turned to Kaoru and Hikaru.
"So how'd I do you two?" She asked.
Everyone looked at Kaoru and Hikaru as they smiled and nodded.
"Perrrr..." Kaoru started.
"Fect" Hikaru finished.
