Chapter One: Accepted
The Cherry blossoms were in bloom and school would be starting soon. A girl the age of seventeen sighed as she sat in the back of the family's car. Her mother would glance into the mirror occasionally. The girl would take no notice and continued to stare at the passing scenery.
"Hey, I know you are upset about the move, but you have to understand it is for the best." The girl still stared out the window not paying a bit of attention to the older woman.
"Come on Ally, you can't keep pouting and blaming your father. He is in the military and he was moved to be stationed here in Japan." Her mother sighed as she glanced at the blonde in the back seat. There was still no response from her.
"Ally, we are almost to your new school." This brought a reaction from the silent girl. Her eyes seemed to glow a bit at the mention of her new school.
"What's it called?" the girl turned her gaze to her smiling mother.
"You will be attending Ouran Academy at their high school." She smiled. "It is a prestigious school for the rich and famous." Allison rolled her eyes. "Your father pulled some strings and got you in." The younger blonde sighed.
"When does school start?" Her voice was dull and held very little interest.
"You start on Monday, but we are going to get your uniform and meet the chairman." Ally pulled a small notebook from her bag and wrote a few things down before closing it up and sliding it back into her purse.
"Here we are! Oh look how pretty! It looks like a princess castle. Oh you get to be a princess!" Her mother gushed and went into a rant about her wearing dresses and going to balls with princess. She sighed as she looked up to catch a glance of the building.
"It is pink. I hate pink." She stated flatly. Her mother squeeled happily.
"Come on! Let's go in!" Ally rolled her eyes at her mother's antics a they exited the car. She had always wanted Ally to be girly girl. It would never happen. She grew up on an army base around jarheads. Ally was more reserved and quiet. She found more entertainment in her books then the dolls her mother tried to get her to play with. Allison followed her mother into the pink building that would be her new school.
They sat outside the chairman's office waiting for their appointment. The mother and daughter sat quietly listening to the tapping of the secretary's keyboard.
"The Chairman will see you now." She hadn't looked up from the keyboard. Ally and her mother stood and the girl followed her mother into the large office.
"Ah, hello , this must be your daughter Allison. The girl nodded forcing a convincing smile.
"Pleasure to meet you Chairman. I am honored for this chance to be able to attend such a prestigious school. I am very grateful." The young blonde pulled her hand back after a shake and gave the male a bow.
"Remarkable, such a polite young woman." Ally's mother smiled at her side.
"You have done a wonderful job raising your daughter, she will fit in well here." The older woman smiled proudly at the compliments.
"Miss Allison, why don't you go explore the campus some, while your mother and I finish your registration." The male smiled and she nodded giving a bow before leaving.
"Mrs. Riza, your daughter's test grades are nothing short of genius. I have also heard that she is a young prodigy on the piano. She is very talented. We are honored to have your daughter attending Ouran. We have a uniform, travel arrangements, and a lunch allowance set up for her. I hope she settles in and feels comfortable here."
"Thank you Chairman, my family appreciates your acceptance of our request. Allison has surpassed any goals or standards we have set for her and we believe she will surpass yours as well." The Chairman nodded.
"I cannot wait to see how she turns out." He smiled.
Allison had to admit the school was beautiful, on the inside. She added mentally. It was elegant and rich. Very rich. She looked forward to this experience, but she couldn't help but feel the bitterflies in her stomach flutter. She belonged at this should, but then again she didn't. She qualified academically but she had no wealth or social status. She was only accepted due to her father's military connections. The girl sighed as she turned around to return to her mother. Allison only heard her light steps as she walked back towards the Chairman's office.
Her mother was waiting with a fogged plastic bag holding what she assumed to be her uniform.
"Time to go sweet heart." Ally followed the older blonde exiting the castle of Ouran. Monday was her first day and it would come soon.
Allison's eye twitched as she stood in front of the mirror. She now knew why her mother had hidden her uniform from her. It was ugly in simple terms. This was a school of wealthy and spoiled heirs and heiresses. You would think they had style. The girl thought as she tied the red ribbon around her neck, glaring at her reflection.
"Oh Ally you look beautiful!" Her mother gushed around her with a camera. A dark aura seemed to radiate off the girl.
"You look like a cross of a marshmallow and an umbrella." Ally turned and released her glare onto her father.
" You are one to talk, you look like a G.I. Joe." Her father chuckled and rose his hands in defeat.
"My daughter you slaughter my pride with that sharp tounge of yours." Ally let a small smirk pass over her lips.
"The car will be here to pick you up soon. The chairman arranged it so you could fit in as much as possible." Ally nodded with a sigh as she slid her glasses up the bridge of her nose.
"Do I really have to wear this hideous dress? I mean really it is canary yellow. I am sure they could of chosen something better." The honking of a horn cut off her ranting.
"That's your ride." Her father said with a grin.
"See you two later." She said placing a fake smile on and walking out the door.
"Here I come Ouran." Allison slid into the silver town car.
Ally looked at the school with an uncertain look. "These kids have way too much money on their hands." She grumbled under her breath. She walked passed everyone while they talked with friends in their little groups. A sigh escaped her as she already felt the stares on her. She pulled out her schedule and found her locker number. Navigating through the hallways she finally found the locker only to have her eye twitch. The locker was like a small closet. Grumbling her gibberish insults she put the pass code in and retrieved her books. She glanced down to see her class order.
1st: Mathematics level 5
3rd: Free period
7th: Ancient Greek
8th: Business management
She was fine with her classes and headed off to her first. Sliding the door open she peaked in and the loud talking that had once been had switched to whispers. She mentally groaned and moved to the teacher's desk.
"Oh hello there, you must be Allison Hayes." She smiled politely and bowed.
"Hello sir, yes I am Allison Hayes." The Teacher nodded and turned to the class.
"Attention Class, I would like to start with a welcome back to our wonderful school and to announce we have a new student.: He held his hand out to me.
" Hello, it is a pleasure to meet you all. My name is Allison Hayes. I am a transfer student from America. I like reading, piano, and learning new things.. I hope I will be able to be friends with you all.: She placed a smile back on her lips as the teacher appointed her to a seat near the back. Ally took her seat and pulled out her notebook as class began. She froze her pen mid-word as she took notice to the fact that she felt someone staring at her. Allison took a glance to the other side of the room. There were two boys in the last seats two rows from her own. One had jet black hair and wore wire rimmed glasses and the other in front of him was the one she could fel staring. He had blonde shaggy hair and was smiling obnoxiously. Ally gave a dull glance in return and gave her attention back to the class. When class finished she was about to close her notebook when a folded piece of paper landed on her desk. She rose a brow a she reached to open the note.
Dear Princess Allison Hayes,
You are officially invited to join the Ouran High
Host Club, in the 3rd music room today after school
At 3:00PM. We have all sorts of types for your pleasure.

Allison stared at the paper for a moment before crumbling it up and tossing it into the recycle bin. She heard a squeak of a whimper from the other side of the room and Ally smiled as she packed her stuff for the next class.
