Sure enough, Etsu was let inside by one of the teachers who, judging by the pen in his hand, was likely dealing with paperwork at the time. This one seemed significantly younger than what Etsu was expecting, and he certainly looked handsome. Perhaps a little too
handsome. Etsu couldn't help but blush when she first saw him, but now that she thought about it, the young man was probably out of her league."Oh, good morning!"
he said in greeting, his voice oddly bright and enthusiastic, "I haven't seen you around before.""Well... you see, I uh..."
the loss of words that Etsu had was about as clear as day. Part of that was that there was no denying the man's handsomeness regardless, and part of that was that she felt embarrassed having to transfer in the first place. Third year transfer students were a rarity after all, so the fear of being singled out was a big fear she had. "Ah! Are you the transfer?"
this seemed to snap Etsu back into reality."Oh! Yes, I'm the new, er... transfer... student,"
she shuddered at the sound of those two words coming out of her mouth together, "My name is Izumo Etsu, and I came down all the way from Fukushima to be here. It's nice to meet you."
Etsu smiled briefly to match the young teacher's smile, but this quickly faded as she got lost in his eyes, and she blushed more heavily than before. She broke eye contact with him without realizing that she'd done so, and sunk her head a little.'Why do I have these feelings for him all of a sudden?'
Etsu thought, 'There must be more deserving girls for him than me, surely,'@Crimmy
