Ikeda Hina walked briskly towards the academy, her sister Rina, right behind her.
“Why are you rushing? We aren’t even late?” Hina asks as she matches her pace. Hina frowned briefly, before hooking her arm around her sister’s.
“Ah, but I could’ve been if I didn’t have to wait for you, dear sister. I don’t know how you can stand being so late.” In reality, Rina was ready for school only a minute or two after Hina. Not that Hina ever acknowledged that.
The two continued on their walk, arriving at the school with plenty of time to spare. As they walked up the stairs, they turned in unison when they heard a car pull up. Out of the sleek black car, came Sonohara Yurika, graceful as always.
“Oh, Sonohara-senpai is so pretty,” Rina whispered.
Hina let go of her sister’s arm to adjust her hair, trying not to let her displeasure show. “She’s alright, I suppose,” she said lightly. “Look, she’s carrying her own bag. Must’ve lost her latest servant.”
“How terrible! She looks like she needs help,” Rina trotted back down the stairs towards Sonohara. She gave a brief backwards glance back to her sister. “See you in homeroom!”
“No, wait!” Hina began to call, before turning on her heel to head in to the school. Fine, let Rina make a fool of herself. She’ll run back for my help before class starts, for sure.
Hina walked into the classroom. Some students were already there, milling around, chatting. She briefly greeted them, before going to her usual seat. She ignored Rina’s empty desk, and dropped her bag on her own. The sound was louder than she intended. It was then she noticed Mika sitting in the desk next to her, apparently asleep.
I hope I didn’t wake her, she thought.
Rina walked up to Sonohara with a slight bounce in her step. “Good morning, Sonohara-senpai! How are you today?”
