It was normal sunny day at Fumikoro High school in little town outside of japan. All of the students including last kin to Oolong descendants- Hitomu Skye Oolong attend his way to mathmatic class. Equations and formulas are not Skye (hitomu) cup of tea. His grades in the last quarter suck and the school principal made him repeat this class in his sophomore year. He Did not like it in one bit.
"Damn!" He shouts "I am back in this pain of a God's class." His voice echoes as he slams his notebooks on his desk in room 204. He got the whole class looking at him weriod with his brown 'hello i just got out of bed today" hair and wrinkled t-shirt with no blazer but he managed to wear his sneakers in the teacher presecence.
"Well, what are you all looking at?" He stares down at each one of the students but the teacher Mr. Watashi glares at him. "What they were stare at me?"
He motions and shrugs his shoulder at the teacher but it does not amuse him whatsoever. So he kicks his desk and the girls in his classroom slipped to the backroom gossip. He turn around and about to have word with the girls till a hand reaches his shoulder.
"What thhhee....?" He blanks out and look up foward and he sees his friend shin in his black blazer with school official button down next to him.
"OH hey shin,how it going?"
Shin smile at him and then watch Hitomu reactions."I am good. Are you?"
"Yes,Yes..very good.."he says scan the room and then back at shin with his red eyes. He stop and said No more because Shin have not left yet.
"That is good because I heard you five doors down the hallway.." the boys friend said in melachoniois dark voice "now do you think that your legendary great grandfather be pleased with your behavior?"
The room dropped silent when Hitomu great grandfather be spoken in Hitomu presence. He breathe heavy and always panic after somebody call his actions out like Shin did. It his fault for not controlling his anger. He only has few relatives that do not mind him stay there but if word go out, he will not have a home.

"Awww.." the girls sympathize when Hitomu becomes emotional around his friend. "He really is that scary and he about to cry."
"WhaT?!" He over hearts the girls in the back but shin snap his fingers upfront.
"Right, stay focus here.." He looks at front of the room and the teacher started writing on the board.
" So, this is what going on with you?"
"Yes, shin. It is."
"Well i do not want you to cry just yet. "
" Wwaitt, i just have allergies. " Hitomu rushes to dry off his tears with his hands but Shin got easily annoyed by it.
"Ok Mr wannabe tough, we talk at lunch. In the meantime, our childhood pal Sao made this tea for you."
As shin explains, he placed the foam cup covered with plastic on Hitomu desk and smirked. "He really appreciate you drink his latest product."
"I can imagine his face now propped goofy and bubble fever around him"

The door opens up the bell rings, he looks up with his blue purple eyes and snowy white hair. "So did our grumpy lump of friend like my speciality?"")
"What would you say about his stuff?"
"Let me see " said Hitomu as he peel off the plastic takes a sip and then swallow it awfully. "It is a green tea with hisbscuiys. It could use some honey."
"Right or he could just finsh his studies like us.." Shin go off as,if he about to burst out in cry .
