FIRST DAY Aino Momoko A white limousine pulled to a slow stop in front of the Elite Magical Girl's Academy, and out poured several dark-suited men with their hands full of suitcases. One man was lucky enough to only have to carry a purse, but that was taken shortly after a pink haired girl exited the vehicle. She was petite, and bright eyed, appearing as if there was no better place to be in that moment. Behind her was a man much taller than herself, older judging by the wrinkles around his eyes as he smiled down at his daughter. He placed his hand on her shoulders, and gave them a firm squeeze before entering the limousine again. Oddly enough, she smiled and nodded. No words were spoken, but that gesture was all she needed to know that her father would miss her during the year that she was gone. "Well, what are you guys waiting for?" Momoko folded her arms and glared at her hired help, a disapproving look worn across her face. They looked down at her, a visible sweat drop rolling down the sides of their face in unison. "Go. He needs you more than I do, and I can't have you guys hanging around in an all girls school," Momoko almost scolded, but she laughed afterwards and sighed. "We go through this every year. Luckily, this is my last year being here. Maybe you'll be more useful after I graduate." Momoko could only hope that her bodyguards would get the big picture someday. She was a magical girl, and thanks to the training the academy provided she was good enough to defend herself. Of course, the sight of burglars and other suspicious characters still scared her, but Momoko was a tough girl. She wanted to be more independent, and not just when it came to handling finances. Heaving a sigh, Momoko waited for her bodyguards to set her belongings down. She tapped her foot impatiently in attempts to urge them on, but they never did. "Fine. You can help me take my things to my room, but after that you're gone. Mizuno-san will transform if she sees you in here," she said, picking up her feet and walking up to the giant glass double doors. One of the body guards opened it for her, and Momoko entered with a roll of her eyes. She hated to cause a scene every year, but the looks from the first years and new students always provided some laughter. By now most of the returning students were used to seeing the idol up close, and Momoko was thankful that no one seemed to make a big deal over her anymore. She had gained quite the reputation as local snob just from refusing to sign autographs, and take pictures during her freshmen year. Momoko unzipped her purse and retrieved a piece of paper with her room number written on it. It had her roommate's name on it as well, but she wasn't interested enough to check. The knowledge that she was roomed with a second year was enough to shrug it off, but secretly she hoped whoever the girl was was easy to get along with. And neat, she hates clutter and dirtiness. It only took several minutes before Momoko arrived at her room. She was pleasantly surprised to find no signs of life, and quickly jumped to claim her bed. "Put those there," Momoko pointed at a bed, and the body guards did as they were told. "Thank you. Now, please. Get out of here before you scare my room mate. The last thing she needs is to come here and see three men in black," Momoko demanded. The men took their leave, and were never to be seen or heard from again. Momoko smiled and walked over to the window, peeking down at all of the students that were down below. She turned away and glanced at her watch. It was still early in the morning, and she still had a bit of time to unpack and make it to the mandatory school assembly.
