A/N: I know that I shouldn't be doing this but I actually have more time on my hands to get some things out of hiatus and start working on some new stories. I've wanted to post something new so I decided to go ahead and do it.

This is actually my second attempt at a shoujo-based work. Synthetic Emotions was my first, but even it has a little shounen in it. I'm hoping that I can pull off a complete shoujo story here.

This story will be 15-25 chapters at the most and I've been working on it like I have Sacrifice, so I should be able to complete it soon. For those of you who wonder, I'm brining My Sister's Keeper out of Hiatus, so look for an update this month sometime.


Please enjoy my newest work!

I've been watching him for a while now. He just moved into the Sakaraku Apartment Complex and took residence in the room that faces my home.

He's tall, a good six foot in height, lean and muscular with green, spiky hair and eyes that would put the heavens to shame. He's a stern and powerful creature but he never seems to smile.

I often catch him glancing up towards the sky with a forlorn and nostalgic look on his face. Even though there are other people in the apartments, he always seemed so lonely.

I wished that I could make him happy but what can I do? I'm helpless from my position in this tree outside of his window.

He does take comfort in my presence, however. He enjoys my singing and listens to me in the early morning. He's by my side, every morning as I sing my brilliant song and sometimes, I think that I'm the only one who seems to bring him joy.

I am the sparrow that sings at his window and watches him as time passes by…and my greatest dream is to one day see him smile.

To Be Continued…

A/N: There is my prologue. I know it's short but those who know me should also know that my chapters will be long, so do not worry.

Please review and tell me what you think! I'm anxious as to how many people will be interested in this work.
