Chapter 1:

序章 (Prologue)

ヒドンライス (Hidden Lies)

Living life to its fullest is hard. It is even harder when have no reason to live at all. If your reason for living is pulled away from you, you start to lack hope. Even the thought that things will get better no longer exists. This despair roots itself into your mind, taking over whatever shine there was left into the depth of the abyss. I was only ten when my only dream in this world died. Reira Ishikawa, the idol that would take the world by storm. At least that is what I thought when sat there in the large waiting room filled with over hundred girls or more. However, my determination was solidified. It was scary to think about that my future would be determined by just one audition.

Idols, they were seen as the light in a darkness. Bringing a smile to everyone they would meet. Creating songs that could change a person’s heart or even change their life. I was an ambitious child with big dreams to make it as an idol, however, they were doomed to fail the moment I stepped into that audition room. I vaguely recall the details of what happened that day. The only thing I could remember was waking up in a hospital and realizing the end of my dream.

I could no longer speak.
