you look around nervously, trying to find your way through the busy academy. "let's see, where did i put it?" you whisper, fretting quietly to yourself. Taking a deep breath to calm your trembling body, you take a step forwards and run a finger through your hair, smoothing it out.
you reach for your backpack and pull out your schedule. "hm..." you mutter, trying to figure it out. you are super focused on your paper and you didn't notice a fair blond that was standing in your way until it was too late.
"oof!" you gasp, slamming right into the girl. you schedule slips out of your hand and lands on the figure's shoe. "s-sorry," you mutter, feeling your face blushing in embarrassment. the blond casts a glance down at you. "hmph," she lifts her head and looks you in the eye.
you try your best not to shrink back in fear. she had narrowed, pale brown eyes complemented with golden locks of hair secured together with two black ribbons in pigtails. "woah." is all you can say before standing to you feet in front of her. the blond flicks a lock of yellow hair over her shoulder and kicks the paper
in your direction. "well?" she sneers, narrowing her pale brown eyes. "are you going to stand up and take it?" you nod numbly and stand up. you suddenly realize how small the girl actually was. "uhm, thanks?" you say, though it comes out as a question.
the girl tilts her head, studying you. "you're new here, aren't you?" she decides after a moment of observing. you nod your head once more. the blond haired girl smirks and puts her hands on her hips. "i'm saotome mary," she introduces with a grand flourish. feeling a little stupid you finally find your voice and say.
"oh.. i'm r/n and.. new." mary giggles and rolls her eyes. "i know, pet." she sneers, patting your head. you immediately feel another blush blossom on your face. "p-pet?" you stammer, a little confused. saotome sighs dramatically. "you clearly haven't heard about our school but-" she pauses for a minute and smiles sincerely,
pointing to herself. "don't worry! i'll tell you all you need to know."
