I clutched the straps of my school bag tightly as I alighted from the bus. There were quite a few students from the school at the bus stop. Most of whom were seniors students who were chatting gleefully with their friends about what they did over the summer break, while another handful of others were like me, fresh new first years that had nobody to talk to.

 

I adjusted my bag for the umteenth time since I left home and nervously made my way down the path that would lead me to my new school. During the journey, I kept staring down at my feet as I walked, noticing that every step I took was in time with my already fast pounding heart.


 

Badump. Badump. Badump.



 

Haru: “Keep calm… It's just the first day of school… There’s nothing to worry about…”



 

Telling myself that didn't seem to help, as my heartbeat started to increase in speed, as did my steps. Faster and faster and faster they went. My heart beat was ringing loudly in my ears now, amplified further with every step I took. Sounds around me seemed to fade away as my heartbeat pounded and pounded away like a gigantic timpani in my eardrums. Numerous thoughts were now flooding my mind. What if I get picked on again? What if I don't make any friends like last time? What if-



 

Haru: “Oof!!”



 

My thoughts were cut short and I was pulled back into reality as I collided with someone else at full walking speed.



 

?: “Ouch!”

 

Haru: “S-s-sorry!! I wasn't looking where I was going!! A-are you… alright…?”



 

The first thing I noticed was her beautiful face, or just the top half that I saw. Her forehead was mostly covered by her jet black bangs, but from what I could see, her skin was so pure and smooth that it was almost perfect. Her eyes were like dark slits as she shut them tightly and scrunched up her entire face in pain. My gaze slowly trailed down to the bottom half of her face, which was covered up by her two hands. She had long slender fingers topped off with neatly cut nails and maybe just a small glossy coat of clear varnish on them. Her hands looked small compared to mine, yet they looked just as strong as mine.

 

Soon, her fingers began to open up, releasing the bottom half of her face from the cage that was her two hands. If just seeing the top half of her face was enough to stun me, then seeing her face in it's entirety was like taking a knock out punch to the face. It was a face comparable to that of a model’s but with no makeup whatsoever. Soft strawberry looking lips, a jaw line that looked like it was sculpted among the most beautiful goddesses themselves and shiny kohl black hair that was neatly tied up into a ponytail.

 

The next thing that stuck out to me was her attire. Unlike most students that I had seen thus far, she was wearing a sweater over her uniform, more specifically, a light pink one. Which really contrasted against the red tie that she wore with her uniform under her sweater. Her figure was slender thin like her fingers and she stood at just around my height, albeit a little shorter since she was squatting slightly as she massaged her nose. I was suddenly reminded of what had caused her to be massaging her nose in the first place and quickly snapped out of my stupefaction.



 

Haru: “I-I'm so so sorry! I-I should've watched where I was going!”

 

?: “Ah, don't worry, don't worry! I should've been more alert and moved out of the way in the first place!”



 

She had an extremely bubbly and cheerful outward appearance. Where most people would have probably scowled slightly after being bumped into like that, she was instead smiling with the biggest and brightest smile that I had ever seen in my life. Her face brightened up even further when she noticed something about my uniform.



 

?: “Oh? You're a first year here?”

 

Haru: “Y-yes! I am a first year…”

 

?: “That explains it! You're probably a little nervous today aren't you?”

 

Haru: “I wouldn't really call it being ‘a little’ nervous…”

 

?: “Don't worry! Lighten up a bit! I'm sure you’ll make plenty of friends here!”

 

Haru: “Ahaha… I'm not too sure about that…”

 

?: “Believe in yourself more! You have to-”

 

?: “Mina-chan! Come on! We are going to be late for the opening ceremony!”



 

A girl, which I assumed was her friend, just a few meters ahead of us called out to her, waving her arm as she did so. The bubbly senior waved back to acknowledge her before returning her gaze back on me.



 

?: “Bye for now first year, I have a feeling that I'll be seeing you more often from now on!”



 

She rustled the hair on the top of my head before running off to join her friend, jumping about energetically as she chatted with her friend. I just stood there speechless, with my hand on my head where hers was, gazing starry-eyed at her until she and her friend disappeared out of sight.



What a nice senior…
