<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed.

There's still some time before the school bell rings for the first day back to school, something that a lot of students may dread hearing after their summer break. A lot of the students are dressed in the red of Juuban, but doesn't mean that aren't a mixture of other uniforms mixed in as they travel to other schools. There's the occasional dash of blue from the Infinity students, and even a rare yellow Ohtori uniform on show.

Two girls make their way down the street, one being the dark haired trouble-maker, Mio Kawazaki, a middle school student at Juuban, dressed and ready for her first day of class. Beside her walks a tall, blonde girl dressed in the puffy sleeved, creamy yellow colour of Ohotri academy's middle school. They're walking shoulder to shoulder, sharing a pair of earphones as they try to listen to music together.

"You really think that's good, Mio?" the taller girl asks of the shorter girl.

"Of course it is! I really like them!" Mio remarks as she looks up towards the other girl, sounding a little annoyed. "I wouldn't have gone and seen them perform if I didn't!" The duo don't seem to be paying much attention to where they're going at the moment.

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed.

School is finally back in session - in a little while anyways. Plenty of time for students to get to class with a minor detour - for example, plenty of time for a brown-haired Juuban middleschooler to find a place to get a quick snack. The girl in question: Fumiko Inoue, the tall-ish distracted young lady talking into her plain white purse. Her green eyes pay no attention to the multitude of fun shops, nor the other two girls walking this way.

"I could have gotten something to eat at home," she complains to her purse. If you were completely sane, you would be sure that you did not just hear the purse quietly hiss something about the blandness of healthy food and the convenience of grabbing something quick on the way. You would also see that a potential pedestrian collision was perfectly lined up if none of the girls paid attention at the last moment.

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. Mio looks forward, and spots the other Juuban student. She doesn't try to guide the unaware girl she's with out of the way, or even try to get the attention of the girl that's having a conversation with a purse. In fact, she actually tries to guide the blonde girl into the brunette's path for her own amusement. She even giggles as she waits for the two to collide.

Though it's the giggle that causes the blonde to stop and look towards the ravenette with a strange look, before glancing towards the girl that's approaching. Ai tries to sidestep the Juuban girl that's distracted by her purse, but is too late as she manages to catch her leg against Fumiko's and she trips, grabbing the other girl's sleeve in one hand as she falls.

"Mio!" she cries out as she goes down.

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed. Juuban and Ohtori middleschoolers collide, both tripping on each other. The two manage to grab each other's sleeve, as if they were mirrors of each other. As they go down and Fumiko's purse tumbles away, she cries "look out!" Although since they are already falling, it seems to be an incredibly poorly-timed warning.

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. With the other girl also holding her sleeve, they hit the ground side by side. Ai gives a loud groan and then winces, before glaring towards the girl that could have prevented the 'accident' from happening. Though she quickly realises that she's holding onto someone else's sleeve, and that there's strange girl down on the ground beside her. She soon releases the other girl's sleeve when she realises what happened.

"Owww. A-are you alright?" she asks, concerned for the wellbeing of the girl she's never met before. "You're not hurt, are you?"

Mio on the other hand is standing by, hand over her mouth in an attempt to look surprised. "Wow. You two really need to look where you're both going!" she teases.

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed. With a thud, Fumiko hits the ground with her 'new friend'. "Ow... wha-" she starts, then notices that the same person she crashed into is in the same position as her. "I-I'm sorry, I didn't mean to!" She scrambles up to a crouch, then slowly rises to a stand. She then glances over at her purse and gasps, running over to it and checking inside it. She sighs, closes it up, and slings it over her shoulder. "I'm... okay. Thank you for asking."

She then notices the other Juuban girl and glares at her. "Why would you do that," she shouts, shaking. "You did that! You made us get hurt! You are a-..." She takes a deep breath, then shakes her head. "...sorry. Real sorry. I... bad experiences like this before. If it was an accident, I'm sure you feel bad. If it was on purpose, then I'm sure you meant no harm."

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. Ai slowly gets back to her feet, and dusts herself off. She manages to offer a bright smile to Fumiko, and seems relieved that the other girl is alright. "You have nothing to be sorry for. Or apologise for," she offers, as she offers a bow.

Mio on the other hand looks surprised by Fumiko's outburst and takes a step back, then glances away. "Well, I didn't think you two would fall over like that!" she admits.

Ai does move between her cousin, Mio, and the unknown girl, and gives a more formal bow to Fumiko. "Please forgive my cousin! She's mentally lacking! I am Ai Yamamoto. Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?" Mio rolls her eyes and looks away. "I'm not mentally lacking."

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed. Nobody seems to be hurt, other than possibly pride and feelings. Nonetheless, Fumiko still feels partially guilty. "Are you sure? If I was looking where I was going, this would not have happened." She receives a bow from Ai, then returns it humbly.

She puts on a smile for Mio, though still feels a little upset with her. "I forgive you, but do not forget this moment. Actions sometimes have unexpected but predictable consequences. Learning to predict the unexpected can go a long way." She then notices Mio's uniform. "Juuban as well, not Ohtori like your cousin? I guess I'll have to look out for you when she cannot."

Fumiko then sighs and facepalms. "I am sorry for rambling on without even introducing myself. My name is Fumiko Inoue, year 9 Juuban. Nice to meet you both. And we can repay each other by maybe finding somewhere to grab something to eat quickly before the world ends."

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. With apologies all around, Ai smiles brightly and nods eagerly. "I am absolutely certain! I wasn't looking either, and it was too late to do anything when we collided. So we're both at fault," she cheerfully replies, her rural accent slipping out accidentally

Mio kind of just stares at Ai, and then Fumiko. "Jeez, you sound like my mother. I'm meant to be your senpai and teach you kids the ways of the world!" She says that more playfully now. "I'm pure Juuban. You've never heard of the amazing Mio Kawazaki? That's alright, because I've never heard of you either."

"It's nice to meet you Inoue-san," Ai offers, as she offers a more informal bow. "Oh, that sounds nice! We should all get something together! And don't remind me about today... I'm as nervous as anything!"

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed.

"I'm glad everyone is okay and that everyone is to blame. Means less blame for each individual." She smiles, then even more at Mio's teasing. Something odd flashes across her face when she mentions not having heard of Fumiko - almost a happy relief? "Perhaps you shall hear of me once I become a famous gymnist or actress," she jokes.

Fumiko glances around at all the different places. She idly plays with her hair, pondering. "Where is cheap, quick, and still worth getting something from," she asks both herself and her two new acquaintences. "Any thoughts?"

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. "Exactly!" Ai says in agreement, still with a bright smile on her face. Though she might have missed comment to Mio being a joke, and takes it seriously instead. "Oh, you're an athlete as well?" she asks excitedly, as she moves back to rejoin her cousin. "How is Juuban's gymnastics team? I competed against some of your swimmers from Juuban while I was at my old school!"

"Or a rocket surgeon," Mio replies teasingly again. "Ummm, there's a nice little cafe two shops that way." She points to the store and starts to walk towards it.

Ai tags along, giving Mio a strange look at the lack of comment about cheap and quick. "I don't know Inoue-san. I usually eat at Ohtori or at Mio's place. I haven't been in Tokyo long, so I rely on everyone else to show me places."

The small cafe is filled with light little Japanese snacks, freshly made and ready to go.

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed. "Yes, Tending to all the sick and injured rockets has been a dream of mine, how did you know?" Fumiko sticks a tongue out at Mio, then notes Ai's excitement. "Oh! You are interested in gymnastics? I think our team... well... the year just started but it was pretty good last year. Especially with me on it." She gives a quiet laugh, then quickly explains that she was kidding. "I mean... I AM pretty good, but I would not say I'm the best. There were good people on the team."

Fumiko follows the two to the cafe, then spies all the snacks. "Well.... great choice Mio! So... many... options! Um..." She scans the tasty treats, trying to choose. "Um... Ah, I'll have some strawberry daifuku, and a sanbei, and... is that melon flavored melon bread? Ha, that's great! I'll have one of those!"

A hissing sound was barely audible.

"Make that two of each."

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. Mio can't help but laugh at Fumiko's reply, and pokes her tongue out in return. "See, I know a rocket surgeon in the making when I see one!"

"Oh, not really. I enjoyed it when I tried it, but it wasn't my thing. I just think it's good to meet other athletes. Especially if you can get recommendations for doctors, professionals," Ai explains. "The coach at Ohtori is great, but I just like having the option of knowing people who have been in the area for a while and who can recommend specialists if I need one."

She follows Mio and Fumiko inside of the store, and stares longingly at the treats on display. Especially the taiyaki. Her shoulders slump in defeat and she sighs.

Mio's order, maybe just to torment her cousin, is one of the taiyaki that Ai was longing after. It doesn't take too long before the orders are delivered. "Don't mind Ai."

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed.

"Hm... I'll have to think about recommendations some time." Fumiko nods understandingly. "Options are definitely good."

Speaking of options... all those food choices! Fumiko is having buyer's remorse, maybe she chose the wrong things? But too late now. Especially since something is up with Ai. "Don't mind her? What's going on? She seems upset."

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. "Thank you Inoue-san," Ai offers to the other athlete. "That would be great. I'll have to give you my number." She stares at the food and then sighs softly again.

"Her coach will put her onto a diet again," Mio explains, sounding very amused by the situation. "He wouldn't be impressed if he found out she was eating and drinking everything in sight."

"It wasn't everything," Ai explains, still sounding disappointed. "It was only three taiyaki. Well, and maybe a few more things." She glances upwards. "I'm dead. I am just glad it's not a meet. Why didn't I choose another sport where I could eat everything I wanted?"

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed. "A diet... oh no...." Fumiko's smile drops as the realization hit her. "After tripping you, I torture you with food. That's... I'm sorry. I didn't know that- I mean, I couldn't have, but still...!"

She then looks at her own food. "And I'm probably making you jealous because of my awesome metabolism," she jokes. "I hope this is enough so I don't lose any more weight! But really, maybe this is too much food... but it usually isn't and I can't explain why."

Well, she COULD explain why, but it would involve some things she would rather not reveal to.. 'civilians.'

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed. i actually gives a good natured laugh and shakes her head. "Oh, you didn't know, so don't apologise. It was my first big festival, and it was my fault," she explains. "So I went a little crazy with things. I doubt I will get put on a diet, as it was something I don't do often. I wrote everything I had down. Well, what I could remember. The festival in my home village, well it's pretty lame compared to the ones in Tokyo. Food is no where as good or as much."

"Oh, and I'm totally jealous," Ai replies with another titter. "Oh, you don't keep a food diary and excercise diary to track your diet? When I started getting serious, I had the same problem and found that helped to track things."

Mio, remaining silent for once, has paid and moved to where Ai can see her. She holds up the taiyaki and chomps down on the head. Ai looks horrified. "The tail! Start at the tail, you barbarian!"

<Pose Tracker> Fumiko Inoue [Juuban Public School (9)] has posed.

"Ah, a festival." Fumiko nods sagely. "They can throw all plans into chaos. You never know what you might get sucked into." She almost seems completely serious and solemn as she says this, but gives Ai a soft nudge.

When Ai mentions food and exercise diaries, Fumiko looks at her strangely then shrugs. "I... never thought about it to be honest. Either I gave it my all and only ate very specific things, or... I rebelled. And it seemed both strategies worked. But don't worry, I get PLENTY of exercise."

She then watches Mio eat the Taiyaki. "Yes, go for the head. It is too cruel to start at the tail, poor thing. Then again, you could just swollow it whole and get it over with right away."

<Pose Tracker> Ai Yamamoto [Ohtori Academy (9)] has posed.

A soft laugh is given by Ai, as well as a bright smile at the soft nudge. "You are right, Fumiko-chan," she replies in agreement with a grin. "You are very right. But it was a lot of fun, and not something I get to do often." She then considers the gymnast again and purses her lips. "Try it, you'll find out it helps. Especially if you're getting enough excercise and not eating right. The wrong diet can mean don't stand a chance if you're competing nationally. I guess internationally, too." She looks thoughtful as she considers what she said.

Mio giggles, and manages to finish it off in a few bites, and smikrs. "Ai, you're going to miss your train soon!" she teases.

Ai turns pale and checks her phone quickly. She darts over and hugs her cousin quickly, rushes towards the door and offers a waggle of her fingers. "Fumiko-chan. Mio's got my number if you want it!" she offers, as she rushes out the door.
