It was a bright and sunny day at the Fujioka house. Haruhi had already left for school. Ryoji was drinking a cup of coffee. A girl with black hair and mauve-purple eyes bounded in. She was wearing the typical public middle school sailor uniform.

"Hi Daddy!" She shouted. She hugged Ryoji.

"Hey!" He said. "How's my little girl?"

"I'm excited out of my wits!" the girl said. "Today's the day my class tours Ouran High School!"

"Oh, that's right! I almost forgot!" Ryoji exclaimed. "Did you pack your lunch, Akari?"

"Yep! I packed one for you too!" Akari said, and handed him a bento. "Come on! I don't wanna be late!"

"Alright!" Ryoji answered. "I'm old! I'm not as fast as you are!"

"You're not old, you're experienced!" Akari told him.

"If you say so!" Ryoji replied.

Ryoji took Akari to school. When they got there, they got onto a bus, which took them to Ouran Academy.

"Now, you may go wherever you please in the high school," The teacher said, "but you must stay with your parental guardian."
