Aki didn't usually feel so anxious, but it was her first day of high school. In her mind, she had every right to be anxious. She stared up at the school before digging her phone out of her pocket. She selected the first email, Eris! We're high schoolers! You almost here? Aki and Eris had been penpals since way back when. Absently, she wondered if her other friends had ever kept up with the enthusiastic foreigner. The thought left her mind as soon as it arrived. She didn't like thinking about her old friends much. It usually put her in a foul mood. She propelled herself forward and raced up to the first familiar person. "It's a Sparkles!" she screamed at the top of her lungs and practically tackled taller girl. The two of them were some of the shortest girls in the school, not that Aki minded. She liked being short; it made her look cuter. She bounced away from Sparkles with a giggle, "Do anything adventurous over summer?"
