Chapter 1

Emma's POV

Beep! Beep!

I yawned as my alarm clock awoke me. My first day in my new house.

Long story short, my parents bought me a house, chucked me some cash, and told me to move. (Or maybe yelled at me)

Taking a quick shower I got ready for high school. (Oh Joy!) Grabbing my backpack I started on the long walk to my school.

Slowly walking to my new school, I checked my Vanguard deck.

Pulling out my two favorite cards, Draconic Overlord and Shadow Paladin, I smiled remembering when my two best friends gave them to me, when I was living in a different city.

I sighed stashing the cards away before entering the school.

Running to me class before the bell rang, I bumped into a kid with blonde hair.

"Oh, sorry," I said.

"That's fine," the guy said smiling, "It's my fault. Hey are you that new girl?"

I nodded.

"Here let me help you! Oh! I see we are in the same class! I'm Miwa, by the way, and you are?"

"Emma," I grinned.

"C'mon, follow me! Don't want to be late for class on your first day!

Following Miwa down the hall, I noticed a lot of kids were playing Vanguard.

"Is Vanguard popular here?" I asked.

Miwa nodded.

"Yep! It's popular in this whole town! Are you a Vanguard fighter?"


"Cool! Maybe after school I could take you to Card Capital, our card shop."

"That would be great!" I said, smiling.

"Ah, I see you found our new student!"

I turned to see a man with dark hair, carrying a bunch of binders.

"This is our teacher, Mr. Sato!" Miwa told me.

"Now could you open the door? As you see, I have my hands full," Mr. Sato grunted, trying to carry all the binders, without dropping them.

"Oh, right,"

I opened the door and walked in. Mr. Sato put the binders on the desk.


I was scanning the class until my eyes fell on HIM!

How did he get here? One of my best friends, Kai Toshiki!
