    An another day wrapping up. With classes for today finished and office hours for the day wrapping up, Izumi was now ready to head back home to her daughter. Upon organizing all the students papers into neat piles, she sits up and exits her office.

    The halls once again quite empty during this time, with only the echo of her heels clacking along the floor keeping her company at the moment. Though her shift was done, her thoughts where still preoccupied with tomorrows lesson plans and papers that still needed grading when she finally gets home. A teacher's work was rarely over even after the final bell rings and there was still debate of what will be made for dinner.

    A mist began to seep through the hallways, out of the mouth of a fox hidden around the corner. In truth, that was a dust capable of distortion reality to a degree, scrambling sound and light waves, creating a visible and audible lie... Such lie twisted itself in the form of a forest, the blades of grass crunching under Izumi's steps, the walls replaced by a dense tree hallway, starry sky and moon glow replaced the ceiling.

    Part one of the trickery was done. Neon next took on the form of a large white serpent, slithering in the illusionary forest hall to face his victim. Green eyes glowing in the faked darkness, its sibiliating tongue breaking the silence that should have come with the crafted vision. Unlike the forest, this white serpent was very real, as was his art of shapeshifting.

    As Izumi thoughts where on making oyakodon or ordering fast food again, they notice a fog creeping around them and the hard floor given away to low cut grass. The walls that once surrounded her gave way to thick tree trunks while the night sky hung high where the ceiling had been. While such a change in scenery would leave most confused or frightened, Izumi was largely unfazed as she know this was but a dirty trick. The sort of dirty trick that she was very fond of doing back in her native Japan. Though she knew it was all an illusion, she thought it a fun idea play along and see where this goes.

    As glimpse of white snaked between the tree gaps, Izumi feigned concern and pretended to look in panic. When the serpent finally showed its face and glowing green eyes, Izumi let out a gasp in mock surprise. But as it creeped closer, Izumi would vanish puff into cloud of smoke and in its place, a red skin oni nearly 12 feet tall (3.6 meters) stands. In this form, Izumi glowers down at the serpent with yellow glowing eyes. While the long red horns, protruding teeth, bulging muscles and black mane all make for an intimidating appearance, the roundish dog ears and large ringed tail that hangs behind her contrast with the terrifying visage Izumi is trying to put on.

    "NO ILLUSIONS IN THE HALLWAYS! I'LL HAVE YOU REPORTED TO PRINCIPLES OFFICE!" boomed Izumi, taking up a commanding and masculine voice. It took everything in her to hold character and burst out laughing. She wanted to see how her prankster reacted having things suddenly reversed.

    Internally he was chuckling and preparing to coil around his unfortunate victim, convinced she fell for it... But what happens when a trickster is tricked? What happens is him whimpering in a dog-like manner and pulling himself away from the oni, accidentally undoing more than the illusion, more than the shape shifting, and now there was a white fox with glowing ends, paws, tail and ears carrying an unusual neon light.

    "Don't kill me please! I promise to eat well!", Neon's face fault has hit a point that his voice faded into a girly one that would have been very off... If things like this weren't normal for the fox. But soon he caught on the unusual traits this oni had. With a most deadpan stare the fox sat up and tilted to the side, peeking at the tail, before showing a bit of a smug and saying "Nice tail!".

    Oh how hilarious it was thinking that he thought she was going to eat her! But the moment they called out their tail she knew her ruse was up. The stern facade of oni's face becomes smirk, then suddenly becomes a puff of smoke. In its place, the female tanuki sitting on her own tail wearing with a very smug smile on her face as she had successfully outfoxed a fox.

    "Why thank you~ Just for that I promise I will not turn you in to the principle's office... nor will I eat you." mused Izumi as she lets out a laugh.

    "It was clever ruse for a fox but us tanuki are just as adept for such illusions. Though it may have fooled your usual silly human, I know a good trick when see one! Instead of going over the top, you should be more subtle in your work~ Overall, A for effort but C- for execution." criticized Izumi after she gave her grading to the fox.

    "Oh, Tanuki. Should have guessed.", unlike what one would expect of a fox defeated in their own game by a tanuki, this weird fox only had the "I should have known it all along!" face, but unlike Izumi he was oblivious to many things, including... "Where am I anyways? I was playing with my friends and then they never logged back online. Last I knew I was in a computer room."

    Was Neon faking amnesia? No, he was not... It was too genuine his reaction, specially when he looked out of the window and tilted his head, or when he took a peek into another room, the fox moving to and fro like the wind, except paws still on the ground. And after a moment scouting... "Grading? And this place is... Is this a school? But I can't even maintain myself...", as he sat down before Izumi his ears dropping down.

    "Surprised you had not noticed earlier." quipped Izumi. But the fox seemed, confused as to where they were all of sudden. Why, she does not know but this places tends to bring in all sorts of students in all sorts of states. She had her fun but know was that time where she had to act like an adult.

    "You are at Starlight Academy and yes this is school. A school for extraordinary child whom need a more specialized education. Don't mind the grading, I was only teasing you." stated Izumi, whom then hops to her feet and walks up to fox. "I am Izumi Yashima, one of the teachers here. What might your name be? Would you happen to be a new student here?"

    Whatever plans she had at home would have to wait, she had to make sure this kid was going to okay as they seem a bit confused.

    "Starlight Academy? Never heard of it.", not surprising, he was just the most ordinary human until... What happened again? Why couldn't he remember. He kept mumbling the last things he could remember of before waking here, mentions of him teasing people inside a game, a shrine for him, but everything further back was... Gone.

    Name? What was his name again? Come to think of it... "Neon Moth. Some players called me Neon only, because they couldn't understand Moth.", when he mentioned "Moth" the second time it was in Japanese: "Ga". "Am I a student here? I don't know... Am I, Ms Izumi?", Neon would certainly need some help adjusting to a new phase of his mysterious life.

    At the very least he was quick to catch onto the fact this Tanuki is both a teacher and named Izumi.

    "Never heard of it? Well... your currently in it." that mere fact made Izumi think that the probably just popped in from some extra-dimension portal within the past few hours, or at least something like that. In which case it was good that out of all of the places he could end up its fortuitous that he managed to find his way here.

    "Well good thing I can understand you~ Well Neon, lets find out if you are student here over at administrative services. If not, we can a least find you place stay at the school. It sounds like you not very sure how you ended up here." with that said, Izumi starts to walk down the hall few steps. She turns to look back to Neon with a beckoning him to come with her with the curling of her index finger.

    "Come with me and I can take you them. And along the way you can tell me all about yourself and what you remember. Just whatever is on you mind." while deep in inside part of her was wary of the Kitsune, she had to repress such feelings for this was a student in need of help and right know she had to be that help.

    How did he get here anyways? No matter how hard he tried to remember, he couldn't. Neon was stuck with a good part of his memory gone, and in a school for extraordinary children to make things more confusing. As he would follow, he repeated all he remembered. It was really... Unusual. He was doing a quest in a game then suddenly froze in place? Sometime later he "warped" to a shrine that was a memorial for him?

    And the weirdness wouldn't stop: people treated him as a NPC, said he was dead when he was sure he wasn't, tried removing him by numerous means but nothing did the job... "I was even called an urban legend. But that can't be! I'm alive, I'm here!", and didn't take long for his tale to hit this day's point, him suddenly waking and already looking to trick someone, and for better or worse it was Izumi.

    This fox... Is a newborn yokai. One unconscious of how he came to be, of why he first gained physical form in here. "This is what my character looked like in the game... Have I become my character somehow?"
