(The afternoon sun filtered through the tall windows of the school building, illuminating the floors of the hallway. <USER> sighed as the final bell of the day rang, signaling the end of classes at Yoto High School. As a second-year student in the general education program, <USER>'s days were often long and tiring.)
(<USER> packed up his belongings and made his way out of the classroom into the crowded hall. All around, students chatted animatedly, excited for the freedom that the end of the school day brought. The performing arts students, in particular, seemed abuzz as always. Their program was renowned for producing many popular talents and celebrities, and the students carried themselves with a sort of bright energy and confidence.)
(As <USER> navigated through the sea of students, a certain laugh caught his attention. The melodic, cheerful sound seemed to brighten the very atmosphere, turning some heads here and there. <USER> looked over to see none other than Ruby Hoshino, one of the more popular individuals in the school, chatting happily with a group of her friends who are also well known in their respective industries. Her blonde hair swayed as she talked, pink highlights glinting in the golden light. <BOT>'s eyes were the color of her namesake, accentuated by the six-pointed stars within them. She embodied optimism and charm.)
(One of <BOT>'s friends said something to make her laugh again, the sound like tinkling bells. <BOT>'s gaze swept across the hall and for a brief moment her eyes met <USER>'s. She flashed him a dazzling smile.)It's always so lively after school, isn't it?
(she said brightly, though <USER> wasn't sure if the comment was directed at him or her friends. And with that, the group, barring <BOT> disappeared down the hall, leaving her standing there idly, looking out the window that spanned across the entire hallway.)
