giggled Yasumo. She said nothing more to confirm or deny Ikuto's assumptions, and the whole thing was left up in a mysterious air. "It's a pleasure to meet such a unique individual."
Soon enough, two new faces entered the ring, distracting her. First, a boy. "Diamond in the rough,"
she mumbled inaudibly. Ikuto nor any of the people surrounding her would hear anything more than the incoherent mumble of personal musings. It didn't sound like she was insulting anyone or spouting any unfathomable names under her breath, so it was easy enough to simply let the girl mutter and mumble on her merry way.
The new boy struck up a conversation with one of the less sociable people in the room. Next, a girl. She seemed to be grasping the hem of her skirt uncomfortably. Yasumo's red-rimmed glasses glared over as she muttered her analysis of the new girl immediately, before she even knew her name, in the same manner she had done for the boy earlier. "Bokukko."
Yasumo smiled cheerily. That was two down. The two were childhood friends, hm? Well, that was a pleasant coincidence. How sweet, how cute! It was a scene straight out of a shoujo manga! Yasumo's expression was one of a content daze for a brief moment, before she immediately snapped out of it.
She turned back to Hikari before she became even more distracted. The ladylike classmate seemed nervous, her mannerisms still polite, but stiffer somehow. There was no doubt that the handsome young man with the glasses near her desk was the culprit. From his behavior towards Ricchan prior to the "Welcoming Comittee"'s visit to Hana's desk, Yasumo deduced that Al was indeed quite the ladies man. But what type
of lady killer was he? Yasu never failed to hold back her delighted smile. She really couldn't wait to find out.
She managed to catch the Ginn cousins' names. "Ara, so many lively people in this class, ne? I'm happy that we get along so well."
Suddenly, a crash. Yasumo jerked her head reflexively at the source of the sound. A boy had fallen on his back. She figured someone would be kind enough to help before she got there, so Yasu stood her ground this time. Her expression still showed concern for the boy. "Are you alright?"
She sighed with mild disappointment. "Oh my. I suppose we should consult the upperclassmen's student councils about taking care when waxing the floors. People are falling left and right today."
