Tsukune was just getting off the bus when the bus driver started laughing ominously and said, "This is a scary-ass place you're going to. Hope you've prepared yourself." And with that, he closed the door and sped off into the tunnel.
"What was that all about?" Tsukune muttered under his breath. He was already unsettled by the creepy, bent trees and the cliffs right next to the bus stop, but the advice (or was it a warning? He didn't know) really raised the bar. He got moving, determined to at least make it to the dorms and get things settled.
The forest loomed up at him as he got near it, and straightening his shoulders, he went on in. There were tombstones and bones littered all about, and the trees were, if it were possible, got even creepier as he ventured further.
"Gah!" Tsukune shrieked as bats flew overhead. "What kind of school is this?!" That's it! I'm getting out of here! He started to run back to the direction of the bus stop when he heard the ringing of a bicycle bell. He stopped, wondering who it could be in the middle of this forest.
"Who's there?!" Tsukune shouted uncertainly.
"AAAAGH!" Tsukune screamed as someone on a bike plowed into him from behind.
While it didn't necessarily hurt, he was still really surprised someone had run him down from behind. He was just about to turn around with a sharp accusation on his tongue when his heart missed a beat.
She was all eyes and cotton candy colored bangs that only accentuated her hourglass form and shapely legs. Tsukune found he couldn't stop staring at those emerald globes.
All he could think to say was, "Here let me help you," and, naturally, as his hand reached to help he slipped and his hand fell on her inner thigh.
His eyes widened and he jumped back, startled and embarrassed. However, a tiny smile crossed her face and she moved to help him and she started gathering his things with a single "I'm sorry" and she continued.
He was still dumbstruck as she gathered everything up and lifted her bike up to put all of their stuff into the basket on the front. He could only watch as this beautiful girl was acting like nothing was out of place.
"I-I'm sorry for be-being in y-your w-w-way," Tsukune stammered. Geez! I sound like such an idiot!
At that, she turned around and quickly noticed his head was bleeding a little bit. "You're hurt! Here, let me help you," she said, getting out a napkin and starting to mop up the blood. However, she stiffened and started sniffing intently.
Her eyes suddenly glazed and leaned closer, still sniffing, while the increasingly astounded Tsukune sat still, unable to do anything. "You smell good…" she said… and bit his neck!
"Ow!" he gasped, clutching his neck. Hmm… there's no mark, and it's not that bad… but why did she bite me?! Out loud, he said, "Hey! What was that for?"
"I'm sorry! It's just that you really do smell good and your blood tastes so delicious!" (My blood?!) "I hope it didn't bother you too much… my name's Akashiya Moka, what's yours?"
"Uh… my name? A-Aono Tsukune. Pleased to meet you," he said warily.
"Tsukune, huh? That's a nice name… listen, I don't have any friends here yet, and I was wondering if you'd like to be my friend!" She started off nervous, but ended hopeful and expectant. Whatever the reason she just bit him, he couldn't resist a smile of his own.
"I'd like to be your friend, Moka-san."
