View attachment 9288 Shizu hummed softly as the autumn air rushed past him. Another morning, another day of school. His dark-reddish brown eyes stared contently in front of him as him feet lightly stepped on the pavement of the sidewalk. The wind playfully rustled his raven hair, causing the locks to brush into his face. Intertwined in his dark hair, two cat ears perked up to the sounds of the awakening world as his long tail swished slightly. They were as midnight as his hair and twitched slightly as the sounds touched them. His mind wandered as he walked, thinking of a certain girl that had captured his interest recently. He knew something was up with her by the way she acted, and this displeased him. He had a natural curiosity as well as a knack for trying to help those who needed it, but he couldn't quite bring himself to approach her yet. It could have been because they had never really spoken before, as high school life interferred with the majority of the students' courage to talk freely amongst the seperate groups. He smiled softly depsite this fact, he knew that someday soon he'd be able to talk to her. He approached the gates of the school, early as usual. He walked through them, going to his usual spot underneath a large oak tree in the school yard. There were very few students at the school at the moment, but Shizu didn't mind, or care for that matter. He was usually quite, but somehow fairly popular. He never really felt the need to approach others, except for when they needed his help of course. He knew that by the time school was over, popularity wouldn't really matter, neither would the fact of who got involved the most. He leaned his back up against the cool, hard bark, closing his eyes for the last few moments of peace before the majority of the student body would show up. After a few moments of his peace, he heard footsteps running over. His ears moved slightly towards them without opening his eyes and he knew right away who it would be. "Hey Shizu!" Toby greeted as he slowed to a stop infront of his friend. Shizu opened his dark eyes to see the brown haired, green eyed male infront if him with his lopsided grin. "Hey Toby, how was your weekend?" Shizu asked, a small smile on his face. Toby shrugged. "It was okay, that party Chole had was pretty great though! You should have come along." He answered, a small look of disappointment in his eyes. Shizu shrugged. The bell rang and just as Shizu looked to the gate, he saw her. The girl who seemed so mysterious to him, his cat eyes focused on her as she walked into the building. "Come on," he said, "We should go." The two students entered the building along with the rest of the student population. It was a mixed kind of school, there were people like him which made him feel a bit better about the way he was. He didn't really appreciate the attention his ears and tail gave him, so he usually hid them. But unfortunately, the school uniform policy wouldn't allow hats... He waved goodbye to Toby as he entered his homeroom, taking a seat near the back. As he sat, his eyes darted back to the door to see her enter. He wondered what she had been up to during the weekend.
