Aino Momoko After last night's concert, Momoko was more than ready for her first last day at the Elite Magical Girl Academy. Being a third year was a pretty big deal, as if she hadn't felt on top of the world before. It was strange, but she was actually looking forward to seeing her classmates again. Of course, she wasn't particularly close with any of them, but with this being her final year the idea of making friends suddenly appealed to her. Before, she was always too busy to pay any mind to any of the other students, and forming close bonds was difficult when Momoko didn't know who was truly interested in her as a person. Being a big idol had it's perks, but she didn't want to be used by anyone due to her fame or money. "I'm leaving!" Momoko called out before shutting the door behind her. Shiny keys jingled between her fingers as she made her way over to the brand new, lavender motor scooter. It was a gift from her father after completing the last leg of her tour, and Momoko was eager to ride it to the Academy. Not many students were fortunate enough to have their motor scooter license already, or parents willing to allow their teenage daughters to ride one alone. The ride to school took around half an hour, and by that time the campus was bustling with students. Momoko took in the sight with a nostalgic smile, and turned into the small parking lot. She removed her helmet and goggles, storing her belongings away in the trunk. Holding her things tight, Momoko maneuvered the crowd of green-uniformed girls, doing her best not to attract more attention than necessary. She couldn't be bothered to sign autographs, but that was an inevitable aspect of her life. A group of obvious first years approached the pink-haired girl on her way to the office, all holding different school supplies with Momoko's face on it. Momoko quickly whipped out a small stamp and stamped it on each of their items. This left most of the girls disappointed, but they walked away with their peach-bunny stamped school supplies. Feeling satisfied, Momoko continued on her way to the office. ~~~Saito Midori Midori awoke bright and early to get ready for her second year at the Elite Magical Girl Academy. Thankfully all of her siblings were still asleep, so she had time to take a bath before anyone came knocking on the door. She got dressed in her uniform, fixing the blazer on her neatly and adjusting the tie so that it aligned perfectly with her shirt. Her mom had packed a bento for her and left a sweet note on it, which brightened Midori's mood significantly. Without a good bye, Midori left her house, headed for the bus stop down the street. As she waited, she inhaled a deep breath and reminisced on her first year at the academy. One incident stuck out to her, but she didn't want to linger on bad memories. As long as that girl stayed far away from her, Midori would have an excellent second year at the academy. Several moments passed before the sound of the bus wheels squeaking snapped Midori out of her daze. Glass doors slid open and Midori walked onto the bus, quickly paying for her ticket and taking a seat near one of the windows. She gazed outside, once again lost in thought. Behind her a child gasped and spoke happily to his mom, pointing out the window excitedly. Midori glanced over and her eyes widened at what she saw. A large cotton candy colored carnival tent had appeared seemingly out of nowhere. There were mary-go-rounds, and towering roller coasters. That was only what Midori could see, but she was sure that there was more. How had she not noticed this yesterday? Midori watched out the window as they passed by the colorful carnival. They were a good distance from it, and the tip of the tent could still be seen over the horizon. Midori was somewhat mesmerized by the place, but the bus had finally arrived at her stop and she needed to pay attention now. She made a mental note to herself to visit that place at least once before it left their city. Stepping off the bus, Midori crossed several streets and approached The Academy, a smile growing on her lips as she saw new and old faces. She met up with some of the Martial Arts Club members, happy to see her old friends again.
