Introduction

On a vibrant spring day, a petite girl walked along a freshly-paved road without a care in the world. Later on, she had to attend the opening ceremony for her school, but that wouldn't be for a while. As of now, she simply wanted to reminisce about old memories and bask in the warm sunlight. Sakura petals flew in the wind, being guided along an unknown path; as the petals swayed back and forth, landing on her from time to time, she quietly enjoyed the silence. Although, this silence was soon to be broken like glass shattering on hard cement.

A soothing tone of voice echoed through her ears, and she turned to see where the voice was coming from. Before she could even turn completely around, a being had already passed by her with an incredible speed. She only caught a glimpse of the figure but she was entranced by its appearance. The male had sparkling crimson eyes and silky onyx hair. He was going somewhere in a hurry, but she didn't know where and on the spur of the moment, she raced after him.

As she ran, her lungs felt as if they were to give out, although she pursued him with all her might, trying to catch up to him. She was curious to no ends on why he was in such a hurry. Never before had she been so determined to race after someone: until now. She followed the sound of his voice and the thumping his shoes made as they hit the pavement; this was the only way she could see him again: the strange male who ran away.

The girl's elongated, silky, hair, bounced along her shoulders and her eyes glowed with a newly-found determination. "Wait!" she cried out, tripping over the sidewalk curb. As she was falling, the male appeared out of thin air and caught her in a determined embrace. Her knees went weak, when she thought that she might've broken something by the fall. The male stood there for a few seconds, and she noticed something peculiar about him. He was constantly watching his back, and he was muttering to himself every few seconds. She couldn't exactly understand what he was doing, but she was sure that he was running away from something- no, someone.

"Did you need something from me?" the male asked, as he helped her stand up.

When she brought herself to look him in the eyes, her pale face turned a rosy pink. She suddenly averted her eyes, and answered, "I wanted to know why you were running away in such a hurry. I don't know what I was thinking; I'm sorry."

For a few seconds, he stood completely still, and then he burst out into laughter. With one eye open and the other one closed, he exclaimed, "That's the funniest thing I've ever heard!"

"Well, excuse me," she said, pouting.

The moment he noticed that she took some offense to his comment, he apologized with a not-so-sincere tone. There was something about him that drew her to him, but she couldn't put her finger on it. She had never felt this way before, but she did have some clue as to what she was feeling, curiosity... Since the opening ceremony was only a half-an-hour away, she was wearing her school's uniform, and he took notice of it.

His mouth dropped open a little bit, and he asked, "Could you possibly be a student of the Sakura Academy?"

"How did you know that?" she asked, surprised by the sudden question.

"Your uniform has the emblem of a Sakura petal. It's pretty obvious."

"I see..."

"What's your name?" he asked, in a bit of a rushed tone.

"Mei-"

She was cut off before she could say her last name, but that was alright. After all, she got to introduce herself to the mysterious male. There was a deep toned hollering from across the block, and the male sprinted at full speed away, glancing back only once. Mei waved at the male, and she finally snapped out of the entrancement that she was in. Suddenly, she felt a sense of disappointment, since she completely forgot to ask him what his name was. But all in all, everything went better than expected. There were multi-colored butterflies fluttering in her stomach, and she couldn't contain her feelings anymore. So, she ran towards the academy at full speed, not looking backwards, but forward.
