One review and one follow...slowly making progress. I guess these two aren't very popular. XP

"The course of true love never did run smooth."

-William Shakespeare

"It's official. I LOVE this place!" Fubuki sang gleefully, turning cartwheels on the green lawn outside the Obelisk dorm. "The beach is great, the babes are hot, our pad is sweet, and the food is fantastic!"

"Yes, it's way better than most school cafeterias," Ryo agreed, trying to sound good-natured.

"Are you kidding? We get a whole dining hall! I heard the other two dorms can only eat the one thing the kitchen staff feels like making. We get a whole big buffet every night! Let's just hope I don't get fat while I'm here."

"You won't. Each student is only allowed two helpings. And dinner is only served from seven to eight every night. Then curfew is at nine, and lights out is at eleven."

"Blah, blah, blah. Rules were made to be broken, Ryo," Fubuki retorted, smiling up at the sun. "So tell me, what are you most excited about?"

"The quality education and the dueling competition."

"That's all?"

"No. The campus is nice too, as well as the Obelisk dorm."

"Have you seen the Osiris and Ra dorms?"

"No. Why would I?"

"They're not nearly as bad as everyone thinks. I thought Ra was actually kinda nice. And Osiris wasn't terrible."

Ryo wrinkled his nose. "I heard there were cockroaches in that dorm, and the sheets aren't even clean."

"That's true. But it is cozy. And I've always had a thing for bunk beds." He frowned and adjusted the collar on his new white uniform. "Though as much as I love this school, I have to say I don't really care for their uniforms. These are so hot and boring. Our school is supposed to be colorful, so why do the good students have to wear boring white while the other kids get to look cool?"

Ryo shrugged. "I was wondering why the girls' uniforms are so…revealing."

"And the guy uniforms completely cover as much of their skin as possible," Fubuki agreed. "Do you think Samejima has a thing for hot girls and hates guys?"

"Actually, I heard Chronos chose the uniforms. Samejima just approved of them."

"And what fine uniforms they are!" a familiar screechy accent bellowed. Chronos was suddenly in front of them, seemingly from out of nowhere.

"Yes sir," Ryo said quickly. Fubuki jumped.

"Sir?! You mean that thing's a dude?"

"Excuse me?!"

"Come on, what guy has a ponytail and dresses like that? And coming from me, that's saying something."

"How dare you! You better watch your mouth, young man, or you'll get your wish and receive a different uniform! Do you understand?"

"Yeah…but who exactly are you again?" Fubuki asked. Ryo groaned.

"I am Chronos de Medici, a professor at this academy and the head of your dorm. So if I were you I'd show a little bit more respect!"

"Are you head of the Obelisk girls' dorm too, or just the boys' dorm?"

Chronos raised an eyebrow. "Just the boys' dorm. Ayukawa-sensei is head of the girls' dorm. Why?"

"So you really are a guy? Seriously?"

Chronos's face turned a deep shade of purple and a vein pulsed at the side of his neck. "That's enough out of you, Tenjoin! One more comment like that and you'll be sent to your room without supper!"

"Wait, are you a transvestite?"

"Fubuki, shut up!" Ryo hissed. His instincts had been right. This boy was bad news.

"Marufuji is wise. You should try listening to him," Chronos growled. "Now get back to your room, both of you. And I expect you to demonstrate proper behavior when you attend my class on Monday. Do I make myself clear?"

"I just have one more question."

"GO!" Chronos pointed a very long finger toward their dorm. Ryo seized Fubuki's arm and yanked him in that direction, fuming. He'd never gotten in trouble with a teacher before and being punished after just attaining honor status, especially when he himself hadn't even done anything, was humiliating.

Fubuki snapped his fingers. "I just figured it out. If Chronos really is a guy and he's not a transvestite, then he must be a closet gay. And he's trying to attract other guys by passing off as a woman."

Ryo rolled his eyes.

"I can't believe he wouldn't even let me ask my question," Fubuki muttered, running to keep up with Ryo.

"Why don't you shut up," Ryo growled. Why, out of all the students in Obelisk Blue, did this one have to be the second honor student? How on earth was it possible that a boy who caused problems the first day he arrived, before classes even started, could have that kind of skill and intelligence?

Fubuki blinked in surprise. "All I wanted to ask him was why your uniform has coattails and mine doesn't."

"It doesn't matter."

"But coattails are awesome! They're so much fun to play with!" he reached down and tried to grab Ryo's coattails. In doing so, his hands brushed against Ryo's butt and Ryo felt a twinge of anger he couldn't explain. He jerked away and walked on faster and farther away from his roommate.

"Hey, wait up!"

Ryo ignored him. He'd decided that was the best way to handle an annoying roommate.

*Begs* Review please? Specifics on what was good and what wasn't? Have I made Chronos too much of a villain?
