Kuzumi yawned, he opened his eyes, his vision was very fuzzy at first, and his mind felt clouded. He hardly could think straight, and at the moment, he couldn't really remember much. One thought rang out in his clouded head. "Food... Water..." He got up, only to realize the extents of his body. He winced, his whole body shuddered from the soreness he had to endure, he realized the pain got worse when he stood up. He knew that the test yesterday would pay it's tolll later, but he never knew it would hurt, so much! He started slowly walking towards his wooden dresser. He started thinking more clearly, and his brain started to kick in. He felt like he was forggeting something as he opened his dresser with much work and managed to take his clothes out. He roughly took off his clothes, and put his uniform on. He groaned, and grabbed his Ru plate. His head screamed in agony. Then he stood in shock. He realized what he had forgotten, he realized what today was. A huge grin spread across his goofy face. Today, he would get his gold plate. A gold plate! He got ready even quicker then before. All his pains and exhaushten wisked away, he ran out the door... And collasped. He was tired. He crawled toward his dropped card. He places his hand on it. "Comon, heal me." His body glowed with a light, soothing green aura. He gasped. The sudden feeling of being so, well, not in pain, shocked him. He laughed and stood up, laughing all the while. His friend, Mark, peeked out of the one of his neighboring dorms. "Hey man, what's up?" The teenager said, he hands behind his blond hair. Kuzumi looked up, he saw his friend. He was wearing the usual, a bandanna, the black school uniform with a small badge, a of course his card in hand, practiclly hidden in his short, blond hair. "Oh nothing, except... I'm finnally getting my gold plate!" Kuzumi said still laying on the hard concrete ground, his light choclate hair ruffled up. "And I can finally go back." He said enthuistically. "Oh yea, about that." Mark said, with a small frown on his face. "I wish you didn't have to leave man, it would really suck with you being gone." The young man said, still frowning with obvious unsatisfaction. "Me neither, Mark, I like it here too, but I gotta leave sometime. I wanted to work hard, so I can see, her again. I... really miss her... And, I need to tell her, er, something important." He said, getting up, the small blush obvious on his merry cheeks. "Oh yea her, who is she? You never really ta- Hey ow!" He got stopped in mid-sentence, because a girl had snuck up behind him, and nuggied his unprotected head. "Hey! Kayla! Ow!" He said, wincing. Kuzumi laughed, he observed the long-haired, slim girl. She was wearing again. The usual, unlike his school, the girls here wore long skirts, and a nice, winter uniform, the long sleeved shirt. He smiled as the two fought a small vicous little battle. Kayla started to run off. "Catch me if you can~!" She said with a small giggle, running off with Mark at her heels. Kuzumi stood there alone, sighing with a longing to see Hiiragi once more. He just wanted to see her once more. He smiled, knowing that he would see her and his other friends too, and soon. His thoughts were interupted by a strange noise. Gurgle, Grumple... He was startled at first, he looked around, then laughed as he realized it was his stomach growling. He then realized, after a moment or two, that he was extremely hungry and thirsty. He ran to the cafeteria with a troubled look on his face.

Later...

He walked through the busy halls of the advanced high school of magic, called Owari. The intercom blared. "All students please report to the gardens for the graduaion ceremony." Kuzumi's face blared with pride as he knew he was graduating. He ran through the hallways, getting many angry remarks, to watch out. Bumping into several angry people, he rushed as fast as he could to the gym. He stopped at the doorway. He forgot his graduation certificate certifying that he's quilified to go the graduation ceremoney. He gasped and skidded in mid-run. He rushed towards the lunch room. He needed to get.
