Well there are quite a few continuation fics out there, but most of them focus more on ShizumaXNagisa. So I decided to write one that focuses more on AmaneXHikari.
Chapter 1: New Beginnings
It was finally March. The end of the school year was just weeks away on Astraea Hill. The graduation ceremony had been in the works for months now. This year, Astraea Hill would be saying goodbye to one of its brightest stars, the former Etoile, Hanazono Shizuma. While this would be sad, they all had a new pair of Etoile that were just as good in Ootori Amane and Konohana Hikari.
The two had already been Etoile for a few months now. They were fast gaining the respect of the students from all three schools, and with good reason. They took their Etoile duties seriously and made sure all the work got done when it was supposed to. Despite this, Amane still managed to find time to practice her horse riding, while Hikari still participated in the choir. Of course, they still found the time to spend some quality time with each other. Everything was going well for the couple, it was like they really were a prince and princess from a fairy tale.
The story begins one fine morning with just two weeks till the end of the school year. Sister Mizue knocked on the door of Amane and Hikari. After they had won the Etoile election, they had talked about sharing a room until Amane graduated the next year. Much to their delight, this request was granted, providing that they didn't make too much noise at night. They held true to this, and managed to keep the volume down at night, unlike Shizuma and Nagisa, who were already of their third strike with the Sister. If it wasn't for the fact that Shizuma was graduating soon, she probably would have spit the two up.
Inside the room, Hikari slept cuddled up to Amane's chest peacefully. The Sister's knocking caused Amane to stir awake. Without waking Hikari, she slipped out from underneath her and quickly threw on a t-shirt and sleep shorts before answering the door.
"Morning, Sister." She greeted the sister before her with a slight bow.
"Is Konohana-san in there?" The Sister asked, "Her mother is on the phone wishing to speak with her." Amane nodded.
"Yes, Sister, I'll go get her for you." She told the Sister as she gently shut the door and turned to Hikari, who still slept peacefully. Amane smiled down at her. Her princess was so cute as she slept. She bent down and placed a kiss on her lips, waking her up.
"Morning, Amane." Hikari greeted her with a smile when the kiss broke. Amane smiled back.
"Morning, Hikari." Amane greeted her back, "Sister Mizue is at the door. She says you mother is on the phone." Hikari yawned as she sat up.
"She is? I wonder what she wants." Hikari wondered as she got dressed in her Spica uniform. Once she was dressed, she opened to door to the Sister who was waiting patiently for her. "Morning, Sister." She greeted her with a bow.
"Follow me." The Sister instructed her and led the girl to her office. Once there, Hikari was handed the phone to talk to her mother. With that, she left the room to give the girl some privacy.
"Hi mom." Hikari greeted her mother in a cheerful voice. It had been awhile since she had talked to her mother.
"Hi sweetie!" Her mom greeted back. "How's school going? Has anything interesting happened?"
"School's going great mom! You'll never believe what happened to me this year." Hikari told her mother.
"What happened to you this year, sweetie?" Her mother asked curiously. Was this what she thought it was? Hikari blushed on her end as she felt the tension.
"Well, I won the Etoile election for one thing..." Hikari began. Should she tell her mother about Amane?
"Oh that's wonderful!" Her mother exclaimed on the other end, "Though don't you need to enter in pairs though?" On the other end, her mother smiled slyly, "Does this mean you have a girlfriend now." On her end, Hikari blushed madly. How was she supposed to answer her mother? She had no idea if she was being serious or just joking around.
"Um, well, I, um, the thing is, um..." Hikari trailed off, lost for words. Her mother laughed at her daughter's nervousness.
"Oh Hikari, there's no need to be so nervous. I'm your mother. I've expected this sort of thing from you for years now." Her mother explained.
"You have?!" Hikari asked her in complete shock. Her mother laughed again.
"Really Hikari, did you think I was blind? Ever since you were three, you've always admired strong, masculine women a lot more then you did any man. Just look at your room. You have posters of these women covering every square inch of your walls. Your father and I have always expected that your partner would be a woman just like that." She explained, causing her daughter to blush deeply. The conversation paused for a moment. "So Hikari, are you going to answer my question now, do you have a girlfriend?"
Hikari gulped as she replied, "Yes..." Her mother squealed with joy on the other end.
"Oh Hikari, that's wonderful news. I can't wait to tell your father this, he'll be so happy." She told her.
"You mean you two aren't mad?" Hikari asked nervously.
"Of course we aren't." Her mother answered, "All we want is for of children to find love and be happy, which brings me to the original purpose of this phone call. Your brother called last night. He says he's going to be visiting with his girlfriend in a couple weeks, at the exact same time you'll be on a break from school. He said he had something to announce to the family. He would like for you to attend too. He also said if you had a girlfriend, you should bring her too if she's able to come." She explained.
"He knows too?!" Hikari gasped.
"What, you thought he was blind?" Her mother asked with a laugh. Hikari just blushed. "Anyways, be sure to ask her if she can come. I would really like to meet her. See if she matches the image of the type of woman I imagined you with."
"Well if you imagined a woman like all those ones I admired, then I guess she does." Hikari told her. Her mother squealed.
"I knew it! Well I'll see you in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to meet your girlfriend then too. Bye-bye, sweetie! Behave yourself!" Her mother closed.
"Bye, mom!" Hikari closed and with that she hung up the phone. Hikari smiled as she walked out of the Sister's office. She was so happy that her mother accepted her relationship with Amane already. Hopefully Amane would be able to come with her to meet her family. She smiled at the Sister who was waiting outside the office.
"It's almost time for breakfast. You should go down to the hall to say grace so that everyone can eat." The Sister told her.
"Yes, Sister." Hikari said with a bow and made her way to the hall, to find everyone there already. Amane smiled at her as she approached the head table. Hikari smiled back as she sat down beside her at the table. With that, Shion stood up and addressed the hall.
"Well, now that Hikari-san is here, we can say grace and eat." She announced. Hikari then stood up and said grace. Her and Amane agreed to take turns saying grace each day, and it was her turn today. Once she had finished, it was time to eat. No one wasted any time today digging in since Shion had kept them from eating for fifteen minutes waiting for Hikari to arrive. She just refused to let Amane say grace without Hikari present.
During the meal, Amane turned to Hikari. "So, what did your mother want this morning?" She asked curiously. She found it a bit odd that Hikari's mother would call with only a couple weeks of school left when she hadn't called at all up until now.
"She called to invite me to a family get together during the break. She says my older brother is coming with his girlfriend and they have an announcement to make. They also would like you to attend if you have nothing else planned." Hikari explained to her girlfriend, who was quite shocked at that last part.
"Your family knows about me?" She asked in shock. Hikari nodded.
"Yes, apparently they always expected I would like girls more than boys." Hikari explained with a grin. She felt so lucky to have such a wonderful family.
"Well, I don't have anything planned for the break, so I'll come meet your family with you." Amane told her. Hikari smiled as she leaned in to kiss her.
"Thank you, Amane."
To Be Continued...
Well here's the first chapter of what I hope to be a long fic. I don't know much about the Japanese school system, but for the sake of this fic, we'll just pretend they get a week break between the school years. Please leave a review. Hopefully I'll be able to update this something this week.
