Ranma continued running out of the auditorium, looking ahead and practically frontflipping over another student. He gulped, then ran for the exit to the main building. Bursting out of it, he ran into a courtyard; and arena set into the middle of it. He rolled his eyes, then looked from left, to right. On each side of him was a building for dorms; A and B. Once he'd located B, he headed off for it, glad he'd seemed to get off Scott free. Sighing with relief, his run slowed to a jog, then a casual walk as he took in the campus surroundings. There were already people sparring in the outside arena, with tables and chairs set out for people to read, watch, eat at, or simply hang out. Benches were occasionally placed here and there. Overall, the campus was gorgeous; green, fresh, and new. He grinned, then continued along his way. After all that trouble and Akane being such a .. ugh, he could finally relax and enjoy his first day at the academy. Or so he thought.
Rubbing his eye from behind his glasses, Tofu walked out of the auditorium with Betty casted over his shoulder. He had hoped to introduce himself (and Betty), but unfortunately he had fallen asleep. It depressed him a tiny bit, that he had failed like that, but didn't let it get to him much. There'd be more opportunities!Suddenly, the newly made teacher spotted red and pointy tail. ...Ranma? Wow. He should have expected him here, too. Ranma was one of the best martial artist the doctor knew. Well, now time to greet him. <3With surprising speed and agility, he sped past several students ,alarming them greatly as he did so, to the boy. Grinning, Tofu tapped Ranma's shoulder with Betty's skeleton hand. "Hi there"
Ranma relaxed, glad to have finally found his room. He looked down, then searched through his bag for the key, hardly noticing the Professor sneaking up behind him. As he opened the door, Ranma grinned and moved to walk in. He stopped when he felt a tap on his shoulder, then saw the boney hand tapping him. "... AAAH!" He screamed, then jumped onto the door, frigid as a high-strung cat. He glared down at the skeleton, then at Doctor Tofu. Damnit! No matter how many times Tofu did this, Ranma'd never be able to relax. He felt like he'd just had two heart attacks, but tried to play it cool. "I.. oh, Hey." He jumped down, brushing himself off.
Tofu smiled happily at the young man's reaction. It was so...Ranma."I'm sorry, Ranma, did Betty surprise you again?" he asked innocently. He brought his hand to Betty's skull, and turned it so it faced the boy. "Betty's sorry, too" The grown man nodded the skeleton's head up and down as if it were his little doll.Tofu laughed merrily to himself, and slung Betty over his shoulder again. "So, how are you?"

"C'mon, Sugar!" Ukyou sighed with relief when they reached the dorms. So far, nothing had happened, and Ryouga hadn't strayed off track at sll. This was good, though Ukyou knew that even if she helped him this time, he was sure to get lost later on. Ah, well. "Should be down this hallway.." Ukyou walked through the double-doors of the building, looking from left to right. "What was the number, again?"
He fumbled through his pockets for the paper.. but nothing. Apparently when Ryouga was not getting lost directionally, he was losing other things; like important papers. Luckily, he had remembered the number."107."Ryouga hadn't been speaking much. Mostly because he was anxious to see his roomate, however that may have been..
Ukyou nodded, then headed down the hallway, before stopping at the sight of Ranma and the open door that read, clearly, "107."".. Ranma-honey?" She tilted her head, quirking a slight brow at the situation. Hmm. This was bad. Yes, most definitely bad Ranma and Ryouga being roomates would more than likely kill the school.
.. Damnit. Ranma was starting to suspect that Tofu's antics were totally done on purpose. His eyebrow twitched, befre he huffed and brushed himself off. "I'm.. okay, I guess. It's an okay first day." But ONLY okay, because Akane was off with her good old buddy Shinnosuke. PEH! What did he care?! Ranma wasn't jealous or anything. "I just want classes to start so we can get this over wi--" he stopped, looking towards Ukyou, before quirking a brow. "What.. What're you guys doin' here?"
Ryouga's eyes widdened as he saw the boy with the braid. His brow furrowed and he bent down in a fighting stance. The wander's previous calm demeanor completely did a 180."YOU! I think the question is, what are you doing here!" he looked up at the room number and smirked as he thought he caught Ranma in the act. "Oh, I get it.. you were planning on detroying my room, weren't you?!"
Ranma's right brow twitched. He growled, then looked to Tofu, saying, "Hold that thought for a sec." Turning to Ryouga, a fire practically flared up around Ranma, and he yelled, "What the HECK're you talking about, ya overgrown hog, this is MY room!" He sneered, then pulled up his ID card and paper, just for proof. "HAH! See? So get outta here, you got the wrong room!" He crossed his arms, fuming.
Ukyou sighed, then went to take a spot beside Tofu, frowning, "Just like any other day," she mumbled, almost amused at how nothing had changed. Though, why would it? "How ave you been, Doct--or, Professor Tofu?" She hadn't spoken to the man much in the past, but it would be good to start up a chat with him now since he was now officially one of her teachers. Plus, she needed to kill time while Ranma and Ryouga fought, and she didn't want to leave the poor man there alone.
Tofu, who was watching the two healthy young boys with a cheerful smile, looked down at Ukyou."Oh, I've been fine, um...Ukyou, right?" He waved Betty's skelton hand at her. "How are you doing? Healthy enough?" Well...this felt weird. He was asking that question and he wasn't going to treat her for any pains either. Ah, but it was nice talking to one of his future students~
Ryouga dug deep in his pockets to find his proof. Turns out his missing paper was in his OTHER pocket.. haha. Once he found it, he held it in front of Ranma face a little bit TOO close and 'accidentally' punched the other boy."You must have stolen that from my ACTUAL roommate, theif!" He refuse to believe that he and Ramna would be rooming together.
