Kou pretty much expected the reception he got, being the fifth position of his dorm "Well you got their attention, now what?” he thought to himself.
A few moments later, someone else popped in to introduce herself in a rather cheerful and friendly manner, it vaguely reminded him of Sana. “Oh, the name’s Kou. Nice to meet you!” Kou responded in a polite manner, but then he realized that nobody actually called him by his name.
“Wait, hang on… AM I THAT PLAIN!?” he almost shouted out loud but managed to keep himself from looking like a fool.
“Am I forgotten that easily? We went through 2 years in the same classrooms and you all don’t remember me?” Kou asked the group. ”Anyway, I’m just here to make myself known and perhaps make some friends here. It's another fresh year here, and we don't really speak with you folks too often.
“We gotta start making changes, especially now that alliances are a factor here. So, in case we end up as allies, it’s nice to finally speak with you guys... even if it’s rather awkward.” Kou spoke to the group, uncertain about if he got his intentions across properly.
Kaito noticed the dark dorm students looking at him. “Ah you guys were in the middle of something?” he asked.
“Don’t worry, I won’t be here for long if you guys are busy. I’m just here to start the year off on the right foot and talk to you all at the start of the year. Ah, by the way, the name’s is Kaito Nonaka in case you forgot. I’m happy to see you all once again,” Kaito formally re-introduced himself to the group despite knowing them for a while. “How about it? You guys up for hanging out for the day?”
Naoki was about to walk to the wind group but said group happened to find her instead. Or, rather, their leader had. “Ah, Yute! How are you doing today? ...Actually, truth be told, I’ve been looking for you. I was wondering if we could just talk for a bit,” Naoki cheerfully asked. Even though she wanted to duel, she wasn’t the type to just walk up to someone and challenge them out of the blue.
