"I'm going to get a headstart back," Suzy told Souma as she glanced behind her at the tall male. "See you there. And thanks for uh, coming to my aid. I appreciate it." Giving him a warm smile, she turned her head forward and continued walking down the hallway towards the elevator. Hitting the down button, she waited for it to open before stepping inside and pressing the first floor button. When the elevator opened, she stepped out and walked in the direction of the ballroom.
Not much seemed to have happened since she left to go change out of her punch-stained dress and into a new one. The dance floor was still packed with dancers dancing with each other and the tables were all still occupied by those who'd rather stuff their faces in food than dance. Just then, the song transitioned from that of some slow song to an Asian-sounding one. "Hey this is Shang-Heeyo's song!" she cried. Looking around in a perky manner, she tried to locate him. Since she could barely tell Asians apart, she mistook one guy for him (he was actually Taiwanese). Frowning when she couldn't find him, she placed a hand on her hip, wondering where he could have gone. Then with a shrug, she assumed, "He probably just went to the restroom. I'll ask Xan to replay the song again when he comes back."
Oh Suze if only you knew how much Seung loathes that particular song.
Joining in on the dance, Suzy outstretched her arms and brought them together so that her right hand overlapped with her left. Then she alternatively hopped between one leg and the other as if riding a horse, and then swinging her right hand around her head as if she were lassoing something. To be frank, she didn't know the dance at all (she normally didn't listen to Asian music) until just now--she just imitated the other people who knew it better than she did. Soon, the song died away as the Headmaster made his appearance onstage to announce the Winter Royals.
Eli and Yukina are sooo going to be King and Queen. I just know it, she thought.
The Prince and Princesses' names were announced first. Ignoring the Headmaster's request for them all to save their clapping till the very end, Suzy did so anyway. She was actually surprised to hear that Laurel had been selected as princess, though, seeing how she'd just transferred in yesterday. Guess she must have gained a lot of popularity from yesterday's incident. "Woo go Laurel!" she cried. And to her fellow Guardian, "Go Xan!"
Then she took a deep breath and waited as she watched the Headmaster take out two slips of paper from his envelope. It almost felt as if the world had stopped for that one single moment. When he announced Takeshi's name as Winter King and Misaya's name as Winter Queen, Suzy did a double take. If she had a glass of water on her right about now, she'd be spittaking instead. Wait what?! she thought dumbfoundedly, unable to comprehend what she just heard. Okay, so maybe Takeshi had gotten a good amount of popularity among some of the students. Fair enough. But Misaya? She'd never encountered the girl personally before, but had heard that she had a nasty violent streak that many people found scary and off-settling. Well, I guess some people must not mind it, she thought. It disappointed her that Yukina and Eli didn't win the crowns, but she clapped anyway.
...And there Misaya went, out the door after threatening everyone who'd "voted" for her. And Laurel, too, somewhat. Suzy could spot her leader halting the brunette freshman just before she could make leave through the door. Was she persuading her to stay behind and dance with Xan? The emerald-eyed blonde's attention was averted towards the stage again upon hearing Takeshi's voice. Her eyes rolled as he made a banter about how he got crowned King and the others didn't. Don't get too cocky, Takeshi, she thought as he continued speaking. When he announced and congratulated Xan for being the newest additional member of the Guardian team before passing the mic back to the Headmaster and leaving the stage, Suzy cheered loudly. "YEAH XAN WHOOOO!!!"
