(Our story takes place in the present...but with a twist. Magic truly exists, but only a select few are able to harness it. To help those gifted with such powers, there is a school on a floating island in the sky. On a crisp September morning, we find our heroines - Sylvia and Sarka: two students who attend the university in the sky, and are about to start their third year...)
Sylvia: Come on, Sarka! We don't want to be late!
Sarka (locking the door to their flat): Coming!!!
(Both girls hurry to the nearby harbor...where they will catch a (flying) boat to school. The captain of the yacht, Aster, is a graduate student attending the floating school as well...and is also Sarka's boyfriend.)
