Prologue

"Cause nothing's goin' right, and everything's a mess, and no one likes to be alone..." the music played on, but she was no longer with the music...

There was nothing to change the fact that she was alone in pain, and only the startled hic that accompanied the echoes of the sobs could be heard. The endless run towards the shining tree of everlasting cherry blossoms, towards her hope, warmth and comfort. I'm but a wearing soul seeking a light at the end of the tunnel...

Crumbling to the ground, overcome by anguish and agony, she could only watch her emotions turn the grey skies black, as the last ray of light disappeared behind the clouds and snow started falling. Flakes after flakes, they land and melt against her check, then being mixed with tears, they flowed down the sides of her check. They were slowly chilling the air, chilling her skin, chilling her heart, chilling her. The abyss that absorbed everything without leaving a trace gave her no chance to even fill it with frozen ice, leaving her shivering with cold and emptiness.

Worn and torn lying on the ground covered in white, she slowly melted away, into the snow, into earth, vanishing into the nothingness, all forgotten and fading away. Not a single hand extended though their murmuring she could hear. She was all alone, without care and concern. Only leaving her with only herself to cry to, only herself to hear her out, only herself, only...

"It's a damn cold night, trying to figure out this life, won't you take me by the hand take me somewhere new, I don't know who you are, but I... I'm with you..." Her favorite idol, her favorite song, her beloved melody... Like her, it was fading into the howling wind, fading into the distant murmuring, fading away...
