|Location: Venus Cup Stage|
(Ahaha. I already expected this beforehand, but to think there aren’t that many guests for real!)
(One two three… I think I can count it with my fingers?)
(It looks like there aren’t any fancy guests who came to see us.)
(It’s obvious, though~ We’re still “nobody”, after all.)
(We’re still newborns, we can’t tell left from right, we’re idol eggs.)
(Judging by how they call our names and cheer for us, I think all of the guests are either our acquaintances or our friends?)
(Ah, Gami-san is here, yahoo…☆)
(Ahaha. He looked away so blatantly. I mean, I feel like he’s saying, “do it seriously!” when I see him tapping his foot unconsciously… I got it, Gami-san.)
(Even if there is only one guest, an idol has to do their very best! But I wonder, how serious should I be?)
(I always run and fail all by myself. Singing and dancing are fun and it gets me absorbed in them, it puts me in high spirits…)
(But when I realized it, everyone had already gone.)
(It can’t be helped. This is my fate. Just like father, I will stand on the stage alone forever until I die.)
(Even though it was sad, that was what I thought. At least, if I walk the same way as father, I can also reach the same position as father.)
(At least, maybe I can sing on the same level as father.)
(I thought of that to console myself, but it is no good. If I pursue the same fate as father, mother will be sad.)
(…I understand that, but there was nothing I could do.)
(Nobody taught me what to do, and I didn’t understand a thing when I taught myself. I don’t even have a father figure to lead me.)
(I had no choice but to desperately imitate father.)
(I will earnestly go toward the sun until I burn myself out… I will bring myself closer to the image of father up to my limit.)
(But was it good to not give up like that?)
(At the very least, other people would avoid saying it, and they loathe it…)
(I don’t want to just take over all aspects of my father who “is not even here”.)
(I am still a “nobody”, but will I be able to find another reason for me to live as myself on this stage?)
(It’d be good if I can. I still don’t know how to do that, though.)
(I don’t know why, but for some reason I feel incredibly happy right now…☆)
(Ah, oops! I was having so much fun that I obstructed the live! What a bad habit, huh. I assert myself so much that I get in the way of everyone else!)
(They’re going to hate me completely… I have to be careful.)
Sorry, Yuuki-kun. The guests won’t be able to see Yuuki-kun in this position, right?
Can you pretend to be dancing sideways and come in front of me…?
|…Eh? Ah, it’s okay. I am saved instead♪
I am not good at people paying attention to me, see… I feel more secure by being hidden behind Akehoshi-kun.
|Hmm, what’s that? Isn’t it fatal for idols to be weak with people’s attention?|
|You’re right, but… I am sorry. I will at least try to not make any mistake in my singing and dancing. I don’t want to trouble everyone, see.|
|Hmm… Then, it can’t be helped. Let’s stand side by side and sing together♪|
|E-eh… What do you mean by “then”, Akehoshi-kun? I don’t understand…!?|
|You know~ I’ll go straight to the point. Having no self-assertion and thinking that it’d be better to be hidden are really annoying.
You’re not standing on the stage alone today, Yuuki-kun.
And I am really happy about that! Do you not think so, Yuuki-kun?
|I seem to be “different” from everyone else, but I want to believe that our feelings are the same in that one aspect.
Is Yuuki-kun not having fun? If that’s so, why are you putting such a big smile on your face?
You know, everything about us is different, but… I don’t know what kind of fate it is, but… we are now wearing the same outfit and standing on the same stage.
Yes, we are idols… I want to think that we have the same feelings in this one moment.
Besides, you are really beautiful.
“It’s such a waste” to hide it, you know! Let’s shine even more together…☆
|Uh, uuh…? Akehoshi-kun, your tension is rising too high right now, so I feel like I can’t understand what you are saying, but your feeling has been transmitted in its own way.
You’re right. I just happened to be here to balance the number, but I also stood on this stage.
|I’ll do my best. And that is the dignity of a pro. I am still a newbie as an idol, though.
I enrolled in Yumenosaki Academy in hopes of changing something about myself. But I only run and hide, so I don’t know for what reason I am here.
I betrayed everyone’s expectation, so I ran away here. That is why I can’t run away anymore. No, it is not good to always run away.
I’ll do my best. I don’t know whether I can pull it off or not, but don’t laugh even if I fail, okay?
|Alright. Even if you make mistakes, we will cover them up! You’re not alone, so be at ease!
I mean, we’re still first years, see, we can’t pull off a flawless performance♪
We have each other, so let’s work hard together! Just by hearing the word “together”, I feel really encouraged and happy…☆
