Summary: Kuga Maiku (陸 マイク) is a high school student by day and a J-Pop singer, Kuro Eko (黒 恵子) by night. What should she do when her classmates catch her going to the studio?
Disclaimer: I do not own the song: Kimi no shiranai monogatari by supercell.
I'm seriously under too much stress right now. between schoolwork, recordings, practice and meetings. Oh, why do I have to go to recordings, practice and meetings, you ask?
I'm a secret singer. After school, I go to the studio when others go home. My name is Kuga Maiku, but my stage name is Kuro Eko , which comes from microphone (maikurofon) and voice (koe-eko). I like it very much, since my name, Maiku is a shortened version of Microphone, so it has a special connection to me.
Anyway, back to my dilemma, I'm having a too hard time keeping it from my classmates. I can't go hang out with my friends and I swear they are starting to suspect me.
Today I'm especially nervous, not because I need to go to the studio, not because I need to record my new single, but because I can't let my classmates know that I'm going to the studio.
After school I rush quickly to the studio, hoping the others don't see me.
I think I'm the most unlucky person in the world.
Why. Why did Agahiro-kun bring half the class here to interrogate me?
"Kuga." Agahiro-kun started.
"Yes...?" I replied uncertainly.
"Why are you going to the studio?" He asked the Question of Doom.
"Oh... um... you see... uh..." I mentally cursed myself for not making up an excuse.
"We'll let you go if you sing for us." said Agahiro-kun.
"Or Agahiro-san will post this picture onto facebook." said one of my classmates.
The picture was of me talking to my producer, Akahashi Ryoichi. "Oh..." was the only thing I could say.
"Then? will you sing?" everyone asked in sync.
I sighed in resignation. "Fine."
"are ga "danabu" "arutairu" "bega"
kimi wa yubisasu natsu no dai sankaku
oboete sora wo miru"
my voice started out small and weak, but it grew stronger as I continued.
"yatto mitsuketa orihime-sama
dakedo doko darou hikoboshi-sama
kore ja hitori bocchi
makkura na sekai kara miageta
yozora wa hoshi ga furu yo de
itsu kara darou
kimi no koto wo oikakeru watashi ga ita
douka onegai odorokanai de
kiite yo watashi no
kono omoi wo"
When I finished, everyone was clapping and smiling. their harsh, cruel smirks were gone.
I smiled. it was so small I was sure nobody could see it, but my only thought was-
perhaps everyone knowing wasn't that bad after all.
