Notes: I feel like I should have started with Tai because...You know. But I had this idea for Takato. I don't know if he ever moved places, so maybe put this under a small authors universe.
Takato gulped as he walked to the front of the class. His first day and he was already nervous, that was so great…
He just moved to this town last week. His parents wanted to try a new area for their bakery and this town seemed the most willing. Takato wasn’t looking forward to switching schools at all. He knew the first day of school students who knew each other for years were going to move into their usual cliques and he was just going to be left out.
It also didn’t help that he was nervous while he was trying to introduce himself. His name he wrote on the chalkboard was too small for the class to see. He kept stumbling on the first word. That’s when he saw them.
Two students in the back corner, looking at him. Unlike the rest of the class, they weren’t laughing. They looked in wonder for the kid.
Takato saw this and started to get a little bit strong. Maybe there was hope for him to find some friends after all.
“I’m Takato Matsuki. It’s nice to meet you all.”
The teacher directed him to the desk right in front of the last kid near the window, right in front of those two staring at him.
“It’s fine dude,” the student in behind him comforted as he put his hand on Takato’s shoulder. “It could be worse, you could have biffed it like Kenta.” This solicited a ‘hey’ from the guy next to him, but he ignored it. “I’m Kazu Shioda. And right next to me is Kenta Kitagawa.”
Takato smiled. “It’s nice to meet you two.”
He didn’t know that first friendship in that town would last forever.
