Chapter 1: "After the Phone Call." After the phone call they were grouped at a wooden table, still smelling fresh of wood and chairs that were probably bought pretty soon, because they were set up sort of awkwardly as snow shone outside the window. It was currently January 3rd, exactly 5:00pm. It was a cold morning and each seat were placed with a name tag scribbled messily. The order was of course by team, it had seemed that the ring master was going to be a bit late, so that left the people who were currently seated to talk with each other, some were familiar faces, some not. Strangely if they called Ryouta back he wouldn't answer, so in the meantime they were pretty much sitting ducks waiting for the strange male to come back. The phone call was plain and simple, "Ah, It seems you're not home at the moment. But you do have a recording machine... Great! So, since you're one of my blessed friends... Mind helping me? It's going to be called a Kiora project. You know because... Remember?" His laughter rang out though it was a bit dull, "I guess you don't. It's been awhile. I think you know who this is... Don't worry about it! Just arrive at Serenpity University, room 102, first floor near the left end of the school." He paused, "There will be others gathered there, don't feel that alarmed. After all we're connected in one way. Oh also, make sure you pack your bags, you'll find out soon!~ Oh, almost forgot, be there at 5:00pm sharp, I know some of you have classes. January 3rd, two months from now." For now they were left to discuss whatever they pleased, until the young man came through the door.
