Sorry I haven't updated in awhile! I was working on my other story. I do not own Fruits Basket!

Chapter 7: First Impressions

Ayumi's POV: Ayumi stared out the window of her class room and thought about the day she'd spent with her cousins and the kiss Momiji had given her. He's right though. He won't be small and adorable forever and I should give him a chance when he's older. Maybe. Ayumi heard the door open and looked when the girls in the class all screamed. The person that entered the classroom was a very attractive boy with dark brown hair and beautiful blue eyes. His eyes met Ayumi's and she looked away immediately.

"Class this is Daisuke Akiyama. He has just transferred here from America. Why don't you tell the class about yourself?"

"Well let's see. There isn't much for me to tell. Yes you have a question." Daisuke called on one of the Prince Yuki girls.

"Your last name is Akiyama, are you by any way related to the famous Hideki Akiyama?"

"Yes I am. Actually he's my father." Ayumi turned back towards him when he said this. No way is the son of a major company owner attending this school! Especially with that fancy rich place not too far away. What was it called again, Ouran Academy or something like that? Why on earth would he come here? Ayumi thought and then realized she was staring at him. Daisuke seemed to notice it too because he wore a stupid grin and stared right back at her. Ayumi felt an arm slide over her shoulder and turned to find it was Kyo and he was staring at Daisuke with a look close to hatred. She looked on her other side and realized Yuki was doing the same. Talk about over protective.

{FASTFORWARDING}

Tohru's POV: Tohru, Uo, Hana, and Ayumi were eating lunch together when Daisuke walked up to them.

"You're Ayumi Sohma correct?"

"Yes, how may I help you?"

"I just wanted to introduce myself to you personally, I am Daisuke Akiyama."

"Yes I heard the introduction in class today. If you excuse me I have some business I need to attend to." With that Ayumi got up and left, with the other girls following. Tohru looked behind her and saw the surprised look on Daisuke's face. I think he just wanted to talk to you Ayumi-Chan. Tohru thought as she continued to follow her friend.

{FASTFORWARDING AGAIN}

Ayumi's POV: Ayumi was putting her stuff away when Daisuke came up to her and just stood there. Ayumi finished and tried to walk around him but he grabbed her wrist and made her face him.

"Will you please tell me what I did to upset you?"

"What are you talking about?"

"Earlier when I tried to talk to you, you just walked away. Why?"

"I don't have time to deal with boys right now; especially pretty rich boys like you." He let her go and Ayumi started walking away again but what he said next made her stop.

"You think I'm pretty."

"What? No I don't."

"Yes you do, you just said I was pretty."

"Okay I said you were pretty, can I go now?"

"Wait what do I have to do to get you to like me?"

"Sing me a song in front of everyone, and then we'll talk." Ayumi said jokingly as she rolled her eyes and caught up to Tohru and her cousins.

"What took you so long?" Kyo asked as he watched Daisuke leave the classroom next.

"Just some business I had to handle."

"Do you need us to do anything for you Ayumi?" Yuki asked as he too watched Daisuke leave.

"No Yuki-Nii I have everything under control."

Daisuke's POV: Daisuke watched as Ayumi caught up to the other Sohmas and Tohru and rubbed his chin thoughtfully.

"A song huh? Well Sohma-Kun if it's a song you want it's a song you're going to get." He said to himself and then started whistling as he made his way to his limo.

{TIME SKIP TO THE NEXT DAY T SCHOOL}

Ayumi's POV: Ayumi pretended to listen to the teacher as she doodled on her notebook cover. Her eyes wandered to Daisuke's empty seat and she wondered about where he was. Akiyama-San's not here. That's strange considering it's only his second day. Hope everything's okay. Wait why am I worrying about that guy? I should be relieved he won't be here to bother me. Ayumi looked down at her notebook and blushed when she realized she'd written down Daisuke's name. She immediately began to erase it. God what is wrong with me today? She thought as an announcement came over the intercom.

"Attention all students and staff, please make your way over to the auditorium for a special presentation. I repeat, please make your way to the auditorium for a special presentation. Thank you."

"Seriously? Okay class you heard the announcement. Line up and we'll head over there." The teacher said and then started grumbling under her breath.

"What do you think is going on Ayumi-Chan?" Tohru said as she took Ayumi's hand.

"No idea, let's just hope it last through the rest of the class. Can I borrow your notes later? I kind of zoned out."

"Of course you can."

"Whoa, Little Princess zoning out? That's unusual." One of the boys said as he ruffled Ayumi's hair.

"Hey don't do that! And I'm not a princess! I thought people had gotten over that nickname."

"Actually since you defended that girl from the Pri-Yuki fans, people see you more like a princess than before." Uo said and then patted Ayumi on the back when she bowed her head in depression. Suddenly a girl came up to Ayumi and tapped her on the shoulder.

"Umm Princess Ayumi, I never got a chance to thank you for standing up for me so here." She said as she pushed a bag into Ayumi's hand and then ran back to her friends. Ayumi opened the bag to see it was full of chocolate. She smiled brightly and then popped a piece in her mouth.

"Okay I think I can deal with being a princess." She said causing her friends to laugh. They entered the auditorium and took seats between Yuki and Kyo. "Hey you guys want some chocolate?"

"Where did you get chocolate?" Yuki looked at her with confusion.

"Someone gave it to me. Now quiet Yuki-Nii the presentation is about to start." Ayumi said teasingly. Yuki sighed and then looked at the stage as the principle walked on.

"Hello everyone and thank you for coming. Allow me to introduce the person responsible for this presentation today, Daisuke Akiyama."The Sohma's all took on a look of disbelief and Ayumi started to get a horrible feeling about this "presentation." No way would he do it, he had to know I was joking. Right? Daisuke walked on stage followed by people with instruments and took the mic. Immediately girls started screaming about "Prince Daisuke."

"Hello everyone, I am going to perform a song along with my band, Summer Serenade, in honor of a girl I have met only recently." Daisuke said and Ayumi could swear she heard almost all the girls hold their breath. "Ayumi Sohma would you please come up here?" Ayumi cursed him and herself under her breath as everyone watched her make her way onstage. When she got onstage she stared daggers at him and he just laughed and whispered in her ear. "Do you think you could dance for us while we sing?" Ayumi stared at him with surprise and was about to refuse when the band started to play and she couldn't resist.

Lost in stereo, lost in stereo
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo

She works for the weekend
Mixtape of her favorite bands
Tearin' up the radio
Lost in the stereo's sound

She's trouble in a tank top
Pretty little time bomb, blowin' up
Take you down, living in the radio
Lost in the stereo's sound

She's dancing alone
I'm ready to go but she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo
She's out of control, so beautiful
In stereo, lost in stereo

And I've been waiting for so long
But she'll never know
I'm losing hope 'cause she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo

Shake down on a Saturday
Sit back, gotta catch my breath
'Cause every time I see her
I know she's gonna take it back somehow

Tattoos and a switchblade attitude
Snakebite heart with a bubblegum smile
Sex in stereo, don't turn the radio dial

She's dancing alone
I'm ready to go but she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo
She's out of control, so beautiful
In stereo, lost in stereo

And I've been waiting for so long
But she'll never know
I'm losing hope 'cause she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo

And I'm just like cellophane
'Cause she sees right through me
I know she's glitter and gold
And that's just the price I pay
When I don't even know her name
She's slipping away

She works for the weekend
Mixtape of her favorite bands
Tearin' up the radio
Lost in the stereo's sound

She's dancing alone
I'm ready to go but she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo
She's out of control, so beautiful
In stereo, lost in stereo

And I've been waiting for so long
But she'll never know
I'm losing hope 'cause she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo

She's dancing alone
I'm ready to go but she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo
She's out of control, so beautiful
In stereo, lost in stereo

And I've been waiting for so long
But she'll never know
I'm losing hope 'cause she's so
Lost in stereo, lost in stereo

Ayumi and Daisuke stopped and faced each other breathing heavily. She heard the crowd in the background calling their names and couldn't help but smile at the boy.

"How'd you know I could dance?"

"I guessed. Now are we friends or not?"

"I think we can be friends." Ayumi said and then walked offstage.

Author's Note: Woo-Hoo chapter 7! Well I hope you guys liked it! I have to say that I personally enjoy Daisuke at the moment. Tell me what you think! The song was Lost In Stereo by All Time Low. I love them very much so I'll put their songs in often. See you next time!
