~ ▐ Nanjo Jouichirou ▌~
Heading towards the busiest room in the school at this time in the morning, the cafeteria, Jouichirou kept his eye out for students who were unruly or generally being a nuisance to the school. Did it matter that other students often no longer cared nowadays and felt the strange actions to be normal and of little consequence? No. Proper ethics and behaviour should be upheld no matter the time and place. That was what he believed. There was even more reason to keep an eye out for trouble because it was just after Winter Break where students had returned from their vacation. Some students may have created new relationships with others. That could lead to unmoral behaviour. Other students may still be in a festive mood after their vacation. Jouichirou kept an eye out for any of this sort of behaviour.
Jouichirou cast an observing eye across the cafeteria. He had already eaten after waking up early for his daily exercise and meditation. It was a ritual that had been instilled in him by his traditional upbringing and one that he insisted on continuing. Such a ritual allowed him to organize his thoughts and continue his path towards understanding himself and his own beliefs and ideals. He stood off to the side in order not to block the incoming and outgoing wave of students to the cafeteria. He was not planning on standing there all day. It was just a temporary measure. He did not agree with how lax a good number of the Student Guardians were in their patrols and control over student behaviour. But they were his upperclassmen. He would respect their decisions.
He then heard a loud and piercing cry coming from the window. "AaaaaaAAAAAAHHHAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!" Jouichirou approached the window to find the origin of the unruly noise. He discovered it when he saw a ponytailed girl swinging on a rope towards an open window. He frowned. This was exactly the sort of behaviour that he saw to be a nuisance to the student body. It was morning so he could afford to be a bit more easygoing. It would have been a major problem if it had been during class. Other students might have let it pass without notice. But Jouichirou tried his best to abide by school rules to the letter.
Walking a short distance away from the window just as the girl swung through the window. She seemed to be older than him. Perhaps his upperclassman. But he did not recognize her. She might be a new student. Jouichirou would respect his seniors. But that did not mean he would ignore their misdeeds. He followed her across the cafeteria as she rolled across the floor. She then stood up nonchalantly and began to dust himself off. Did she think that her actions would be simply let pass without reprimand? This was the current state of society. People often had little respect for others. This lack of respect disappointed Jouichirou. If they did not have respect in their youth, how would they have any respect for others as they grew up? A person's behaviour reflected their personal standards. Their personal standards reflected their upbringing. Their upbringing reflected their parents as well as their family. Therefore to act unruly was to disrespect themselves as well as their own family. Without reprimand or correction, this could lead to potential problems in the future.
As the ponytailed upperclassman turned and said, "Good morning. How are you all," Jouichirou was already standing right in her line of sight with his arms crossed. With a frown and disapproving look on his face which could only lead to what looked like a death glare as usual Jouichirou began by introducing himself. "My name is Nanjo Jouichirou. Freshman." Jouichirou then answered while looking straight at the girl in the eye as per proper manners. "It is a fine day, Senpai. I assume that you are a new student for I do not recall seeing you on this campus before. But even new students are not exempt from rules. I politely ask that you refrain from any more of this sort of behaviour that shows a lack of respect for other students and the school faculty."
Jouichirou then glanced at the rope that was now hanging uselessly outside the window. He then looked back at the upperclassman. "I also politely ask that you retrieve your rope and return it to wherever you retrieved it from." Jouichirou paused for a moment and thought that she may think that she would climb the rope just to retrieve it. So he added, "And I ask that you retrieve it in a manner that does not require reckless action. There is no need for such a long rope at this school. However experienced you may believe you are, using it for such reckless behaviour may incite less experienced students to copy your behaviour. This can lead to great personal injury. I do not believe that you would appreciate others who are injured to blame you as the cause of their actions." He waited a moment to allows the upperclassman to think about wat he said. "From now on I ask that you keep the school's rules and code of conduct in mind." Jouichirou then watched her and waited for her reply as he maintained eye contact as per manners dictated.
