    It's a bright and sunny morning, and today is the first day of a new term at school for students of Tsubasa, one of the three most popular schools in the area. And possibly the only school that changes it's uniform's base colour according to the time of year. During the Spring and Summer, the uniforms are white with coloured trim, jacket, trousers/skirt, tie/ribbon (deep blue for the boys, and deep pink for the girls). And during the Autum and Winter, the uniforms are black with the same blue/pink coloured trim, jacket, trousers/skirt, tie/ribbon. The jackets are always optional, as are the choices between short and long sleeves tops. And, aside from the uniform colour change, Tsubasa is probably the only school that changes it's logo depending on season too. The logo of wings is stitched in colour (blue/pink). The white uniform set has soft, gentle, angel like wings. Whilst the black uniform set has hard, agressive, demon like wings.

    One of the students preparing for their new term, is Akiko. And, in much of a contrast to her personality the night before, this morning she's wearing a cheerful smile and dancing to her music as she readys herself in her short sleeved summer uniform. She matches her socks for her uniform's base colour too, and, though they're long, wears them folded down so her legs stay cool in the hot weather. She also matches her school bags to her uniform, drapping the strap of her white bag over her left shoulder, so that it lay diagnally and the bag itself rests around her right hip area. The bag even has pink stitching, and the design of pink wings, matching the school's current logo, stitched onto the front flap. Even her shoes match, as she puts her white trainers into her bag, and slips into some white ATs with pink stitching and wheels.

    Once she's ready, she puts on her heads phones, and leaves for school.

    Akiko had lived alone in her appartment for a while now. Her older sister used to live with her, taking care of her since they had no parents around. Even after she passed away in an accident, it still seemed as though Akiko's sister was looking after her; leaving her the apartment and money she had at the time. But her sister's death had never sat right with Akiko. She wasn't sure if it was that it still didn't seem real, or if it was that something just didn't add up. In any case, there has always been a cloud of uncertainy surrounding her death. But it's something Akiko doesn't usually like to think about, much less talk about.

    Besides, today was going to be difficult enough. Akiko always had a habbit of waking up late, and thus arriving to school late, usually due to her activities the night before, which also frequently resulted in her falling asleep in class. And even when she was awake, she was usually day dreaming anyways. Lastnight had been an earlier night for her than usual, what with the lack of events, so maybe she'd be ontime for once.

    "I better not jog today... it hurt just getting up..." Ryoshiro sighed, "That big guy could hit pretty hard, heh, but without the momentum of his AT's, he was nothing..." The long sleeved jacket of Tsubasa High barely hung over his shoulders as he trod lightly. The bandages around his ribs helped a little, but very little could help damage from a fist the size of a normal mans HEAD. Injury was all part of the game, for all the fun times, you had to get hurt, at least thats the way Ryoshiro looked at it.

    "HEY, CAGE!" came a shout from across the street and only then did Ryoshiro notice his "friends" coming his way. It's not that he wasn't interested in what they were, computer games and women where his favourite passtimes, but everything came second to Air Trek, a subject his companions knew little about. "Mitch, Akira." Shiro stated off-handedly as they crossed and started to walk beside him.
    "Cage, man, you really should of come out last night. Pre-term party..." Mitch started. Akira just nodded and moaned underneath Mitch's continuing tirade. Shiro stopped for a second and looked Akira straight in the eyes and grinned. "Happen to miss your AA meeting, Akira?" Akira's name happened to be Akira Akimoto, shortened to AA, which tied in perfectly to how much the young man thought he could drink. "Lay off... had to show one of them Himazawa boys how to do it properly... plus the chicks digged it..." Ryoshiro chuckled and moved on, wanting to get in at a reasonable time on the first day of the new term.... for once.

    Keitaro was laying on his bed, not really thinking about the day ahead, but rather the night behind him. He had no idea what it would mean for him. He actually thought that might've been a dream and that he had really gone to bed rather than went out for a run on his ATs. Groggily, he got himself up. He made his way to breakfast.

    Keitaro stood in the doorway and looked at the breakfast table. He stood thinking for a few moments, there was nothing really there that he fancied.
    "You look rough." Said his sister.
    "Whatever." He replied.
    "You not eating?" Asked his mother half-heatedly as her attention was divided.
    "Don't feel like it." Keitaro replied as he mentally drew patterns on the floor.
    "Well, then hadn't you better get ready for school? You don't want to be late your first day. Keitaro hadn't even been thinking about school. The holidays had seemed to have rushed by. Keitaro looked at the clock. The bus had already gone, so he was already late. He turned back towards his room.
    "I'll grab some food at school." Keitaro said in a rather unenthused tone as he walked away.

    Back in his room, Keitaro found his bag, and packed all the necessities he could think of. He even put his shoes in there. He pulled on his uniform and located his ATs. He stared at them for a few moments; thinking, again, about what happened. He shook himself out of it and put them on. He made his way out of his house without saying another word to the rest of his family. He hoped he wasn't going to be too late.

    Riding through the streets on her wasy to school, Akiko takes every opportunity to play around... griding on rails, zig-zagging and spinning, jumping over random obsticles... her attitude in the day always seemed more playful and less aggressive than it did during the night.

    And, though there were a few who knew who she was, it was something that helped keep her Storm Rider identity secret from most people. She'd never been that bothered about people finding out... just that it was a hassle and she couldn't be bothered with ass-kissers or pointless challanges.

    Now outside, Keitaro headed in the general direction of the school. He wasn't entirely sure exactly where it was, but he roughly where he was going. If need be, he could always ask someone for direction, or hope he caught a glimpse of others in the same uniform. Funnily enough, his route to the school took him on roughly the same route he had taken the previous night. As he rode past the now darkened street lights, he looked at them. Flashes of last night ran through his mind. Ahead of him, he could see the fence between the two houses. He was tempted to grind on it the way he had the night before, but that would take him away from where he needed to go. Instead, he took a sharp turn right down a relatively empty side road.

    Akiko, lost in her own little world, with her music blasting through her headphones, isn't really paying much attention to anything around her. And it's only a matter of time before she gets herself into trouble...

    Still in her own world, it takes her brain a little while to process the time as she glances at the clock tower when she passes...

    "Shit!!" She says as she realizes she's not as on-time as she thought she was, and quickly speeds up.

    But the ATs she uses for school aren't as up-to-scratch or advanced as her usual ATs, so the perfomance can be limited and it takes alot more effort to get what she can out of them.

    As she hastily screeches round a corner, she comes swiftly into contact with something, throwing her off balance as she ends-up falling on her backside in the street.

    Keitaro sped his way down the side road. He quickly glanced around him to see if anyone else was around. Seeing no one, he decided to have a little fun with his school run. He mounted a wall and ran along it's length. The edge quickly approached. He continued to the end of the wall and dropped down into the middle of the road. Unfortunately, he was not the only person passing through that particular point. A small mass of white crashed right into him, sending him sprawling to the floor.

    After just laying in the otherwise empty street for a few moments to catch his breath, Keitaro picked himself up and dusted himself off. He looked to see what had hit him to see a girl wearing the white uniform of Tsubasa.
    "Are you ok?" he asked as he offered a helping hand.
    "Just got the wind knocked out of me, I'll be fine." She replied as she took his hand.
    "A little late for school, aren't we?" Keitaro joked.
    "So are you." She said.
    "Yeah, well I'm not exactly sure where Tsubasa is." Keitaro laughed.

    "Oh, you're new this year?" Akiko asks, giving him a smile. "I can show you the way." As she considers swapping her ATs for her trainers, she realizes she doesn't have to when she notices Keitaro's ATs. "Air Treks, huh? Me too."

    "Yeah, but I'm still kinda new to it." Keitaro replies, a little embarrassed.

    "Hey, don't worry, you'll pick it up. We all gotta start somewhere, right?" Akiko winks. "Oh, do you mind if we take a little detour?"

    "Aren't we late already?" Keitaro reminds her.

    "Yeah, but if we're gonna be late anyway then what's a few more minutes?" She giggles, planning on making a little stop at a small shop to pick up some lollys and soda.

    Keitaro thought for a few moments about the idea of being later for school than they already were; a few moments was all he needed.
    I think we should pass on that. Its a new school for me... he faltered slightly, ...I dont want to make a bad impression.
    Im going whether you come or not. The girl said almost sweetly as if she was trying to entice him. Keitaro thought for a moment longer. He realised that he wasnt going to win this, seeing as he doesnt know the way, and she does. His head dropped in quiet resignation.
    Ok, you win. Well take a detour. He said with an almost defeated tone in his voice.
    Great, follow me. The girl said excitedly as she turned on her heels and started off in a direction that he was unsure about. Keitaro barely had time to react before she was out of earshot. Before she got out of sight, he kicked off and sped off after her.

    OOC: I appologise for any crap posts. XD It's been so long that I think I've forgotten exactly where this little side mission was going. XD


    Turning on her heels and riding off quickly, Akiko isn't about to wait for him to change his mind again. She needs her sugar fix. In her rush, she almosts forgets she has a follower, and has to slow down a little so she doesn't lose him. She turns round, skating backwards now, to check on him.

    "Not bad." She smiles, a little surprised to see Keitaro closer to her than she thought he'd be. Even on her school AT's, she'd been going a fair speed. "You're pretty good for a newbie."

    A small mischievous smile appears on her face, as Akiko's temptation to play around and test him creeps in. But the idea is short lived, as she trips up on herself trying to take a corner backwards in her school ATs, landing on her butt.

    Keitaro couldn't help laughing a little as the girl fell flat on her rear trying to take the corner backwards. He rolled up beside her and offered her his hand.
    "That was clever, bet you couldn't do it again." He joked.
    "Funny..." She replied sarcastically and she took his hand and allowed herself to be helped to her feet.
    "Maybe you should keep your eyes front." He laughed as she dusted herself off.

    Akiko giggles before riding off again, leading him down the street to a small shop full of the usual every things such as newspapers, candy bars, drinks, and the like. And it isn't long before she finds all the sugar loaded products she wants for the day. A generous handfull of colourful lolly pops, and a good few fizzy drink cans, along with some fruit flavoured candy laces, and she's ready to go. Well, almost.

    "You getting anything?" She asks Keitaro as she grabs herself one last thing; a lemonade flavoured ice-lolly she can have on the way to school.

    Keitaro denied his hunger, to begin with. He hadn't planned on eating until lunch. Now that he was in the shop, though, his hunger was quite persistant. He grabbed himself a sandwich. He reached for the cans, but turned to the girl.
    "Do you mind if I pinched one of your drinks?" He asked her.

    Okusa awoke to the sound of traffic. Although he gains a lot of money for repairing ATs, most of his cash is saved up or used for food or washing clothing. Arranging a permanent residence has never been his forte.
    Currently he was squatting with some homeless people in an abandoned apartment north of town. The other residents never bothered him, they just wanted a dry and warm place to sleep. Tis more the pity the apartment itself is based near a busy road.
    "Ugh", he said, while sniffing himself, "Time for the daily ritual of a bath house..."

    Akiko giggles, poking her tongue, before heading to the cashier to pay for all her stuff.

    "I'd take what you can before we're out of stock again." The man behind the counter laughs to Keitaro. "She's quite the sugar absurber."

    "Hehee!" Akiko grins. "Sugary sweets keep me light on my feets!" She chants joyfully, handing over some money, and then fiddling about trying to fit everything into her bag.

    Keitaro giggled slightly as the cashier joked about the girl.
    "Ok." he said as he grabbed a couple of cans from the fridge. He made his way towards the cashier, but stopped as he reached the chocolate bars. He had a little browse, hoping that something would grab his attention. Nothing really did, so he continued towards the cashier. As the cashier was ringing his things through, Keitaro turned round to see the girl, but he didn't see her. Perhaps she was already outside.
    "Thank you." Keitaro said to the cashier as he bagged his things.
    "You're welcome, lad. Now, be quick or you'll lose her." Replied the cashier as Keitaro made his way quickly to the door.

    Akiko, lollypop in mouth, rolls slowly on her ATs away from the shop, waiting for Keitaro to catch up. Once he does, she smiles at him with a little giggle, and pushes forward with a burst of speed.

    "Come on!" She calls back playfully.

    If they could keep the speed up, it wouldn't be too long before they got to school. And school for Akiko, usually meant sleep.

    Keitaro watched as the girl put on a little burst of speed. She pulled away from him a little way before calling back to him. He grinned inwardly as he put on a burst of speed of his own. She had turned away for only a few moments, but he used this time to get up above the street. As he rode up a nearby wall, he watched the girl. She turned back, with a slight look of confusion on her face. He leapt off the wall, sailing past her to land a few feet in front of her. He quickly turned round to skate backwards. Kaitaro waited for the girl to turn round as quietly as he could.
