Akiko blushed a faint pink, and stared at the dark letters. When she was about to respond, she heard the teacher's voice. Partners? With him?
Akiko glaced at him through strands of hair. He seemed nice.. But what if he was just playing a joke on her? "Haha, you thought I actually liked you?"
She could imagine him saying, and looked away. Don't think that..
Looking back down at the paper, she wrote, Are you new here?
And quickly passed it.
Matsuo's glare faded and all he looked was serious now. "Hmph." He confirmed, glancing at the other students. Most throwing erasers or talking quietly and laughing. Mortals are stupid..
Thought Matsuo, rolling his gray eyes. Humans.
Then, the bell rang, loud and clear. Standing abruptly, he walked out of the classroom.
Akiko, seeing it was time to go, waved a quick goodbye to Kuso. She got pushed and shoved on her way out the door, and ran when she was out.
