It was a Monday on April 8, 2013 in Japan.*
Hiroaki was a 15 year old boy who lived in a three story home and was happy to go to school again.
Itsuki, his 14 year old brother, said, “Wait for me, Hiroaki!”
Hiroaki slowed down a bit, on his bike which he got when he was 12 years old, to give his brother a chance to catch up.
Itsuki questioned Hiroaki, “Are you glad school started?”
Hiroaki answered, “Of course!”
Itsuki exclaimed, “So am I! I’ve been waiting since school started!”
When they approached at their expensive school they saw a lot of students waiting for the school doors to open.
Naoyuki, who was the same age as Hiroaki, saw Hiroaki and Itsuki first, “Hey, Hiro and Suki!”, using their nicknames.
“Hey!”, said Hiro and Suki at the same time.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! The school doors opened.
“Attention all students! Go to your homeroom classes!” said the principal, Saiichi.
All the students rushed in to their homeroom classes.
“Welcome back students!”, said their teacher, Tadaaki, “You may choose your own seats for the whole school year.”
Cheers swept from all the students as if they were at football game.
The rest of the day went in a flash. Math, English, History, Science, and Physical Education went by so fast.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
“Go to your homeroom classes and your teacher will do roll call and dismiss you one by one to the buses!”, said Saiichi.
Next week part 2 will be posted.
*In Japan school starts in April.
