It took Luna a moment to snap out of her frozen state. He looked so young, around the rest of the students ages, but he was the best teacher and exorcist that the academy had. When she saw the redness that had crept its way across his cheeks, she couldn’t help but to do the same. It was odd to her though, here was her instructor standing before her in a room full of smoke and the sent of menthol. Both factors had actually began to sting her eyes.
She almost couldn’t believe that no one else had come into his office going ofter the sent of smoke until she remembered just how big the place really was. Large enough that she had to be right next to the door ready to knock to smell any sign of someone smoking at all.
‘Come Luna on say something! Don’t just stand there looking like an idiot!’ she shouted at herself before finely extending her hand to his.
“Luna Rei, your Mr. Okumura. I’m the new student transferring in to your class.” She said the only words that seemed to be able to come to mind as she placed her hand in his. ‘That was it!? That was all you could think to say!’ Luna yelled at herself again but it was all she could manage to get out. It wasn’t a students place to yell at an instructor no matter what the reason and that even included catching them doing something they shouldn’t be.
Noting the discomfort in her face from the scent of smoke Yukio turned to the window behind him and allowed the haze to vacate.
“Rei- San then, I’m terribly sorry for the unorthodox behavior you have just witnessed…I’m terribly embarrassed to be quite honest.”
She was witnessing a very rare moment. Yukio out of his element,and uneasy.
“I was curious…” He murmured, relaxing a little. He very rarely had the opportunity to speak to others in an informal manner, being that he was usually the instructor. “But I wont bother you with that, smoking on campus is absolutely prohibited Rei-San.” Some authority figure you are he mused inwardly kicking himself for venturing to do something so risky.
“I take it that you would like to catch up with readings and assignments?” Yukio asked, feeling a bit sheepish about being so open with her just moments ago. She knew nothing about him, other that he may be a troublemaker wearing the mask of an overachiever.
