|Akio:||……Sigh. Let’s leave it here for today.|
|Akio:||(Ever since Satsuki complimented me yesterday, the glass beads seem to sparkle even brighter than usual……)|
|Akio:||(Just by having people close to me supporting me, even the glass beads sparkle.
I wonder if it Iooks like I sparkle with the support of the fans?)
|Akio:||I wonder how many I can make tomorrow—— Hm?|
|Shiki:||Ah! Akio’s finally out!|
|Kyosuke:||Akki, good work!|
|Hikaru:||You worked hard! You can now relax since I am here!|
|Akio:||E-Everyone!? What are you doing here?|
|Torahiko:||What do you mean why, Akio’s the one who called us all here~!|
|Raku:||Satsuki told us that Akio wanted to discuss something with us right?|
|Akio:||! S-Satsuki did?|
|Akio:||(Ah…… Even after I told him to keep it a secret!
Satsuki you idiot……)
|Akio:||I-It’s just probably Satsuki’s pranks…… He just wanted to put me on the spot.|
|Akio:||So, it’s really nothing——|
|Shiki:||Akio, don’t lie.|
|Shiki:||It’s already really obvious that Akio was trying to hide something from us, you know?|
|Shiki:||I’m serious. If Akio wants to do something, we’ll watch over you alright? So——|
|Shiki:||Instead of holding these worries by yourself, it won’t be as painful if you share these worries with everyone. That’s why you can talk to us, your friends.|
|Shiki:||If you don’t…… Our members are going to behave recklessly you know?|
|Torahiko:||I was thinking of taking Akio alone with a trip to cheer you up since you seemed really down, but……|
|Raku:||Of course we would stop you there……. Akio can’t live after losing his place to confine himself in.|
|Hikaru:||I wanted to invite Akio to a theatre appreciation trip to cheer him up, but I was stopped by Raku……|
|Raku:||If you took Akio to Takaozuka, Akio would probably faint thanks to his fear of women……|
|Akio:||Thank you so much……!|
|Raku:||Kyosuke was so worried that he ended up passing his manga’s deadline by two days.|
|Kyosuke:||Rakkun! T-That’s supposed to be a secret~!!|
|Shiki:||Look at this. Everyone’s become strange since we were all worried about Akio right?|
|Raku:||Well, the strangest one was Shiki…… Last time we went drinking, he started crying in his drunken frenzy.|
|Shiki:||You lie!? The next day, Raku-kun said nothing happened when I asked!?|
|Raku:||Dear me…… I can’t remember at all~|
|Shiki:||Wait, you remembered when we went drinking, so you can’t have forgotten that part too~!|
|Shiki:||Ah…… You finally smiled, Akio.|
|Akio:||Shiki-kun…… Everyone……. Thank you for worrying about me……|
|Akio:||It’s a long story, but I want you all to listen…….
The truth is——
|Hikaru:||What… What a beautiful heart you have!!!|
|Raku:||Hikaru…… Calm down.|
|Hikaru:||Raku! I can’t just calm down!
Akio is performing such beautiful deeds for his fans!
|Hikaru:||I’m so touched, I can’t even see in front of me because of these tears!|
|Shiki:||Hikaru-kun is exaggerating too much, but it’s certain that it’s something that I wouldn’t have thought that Akio would be capable of doing until now.|
|Kyosuke:||I need to learn from Akki’s example on the spirit of treasuring our fans!|
|Akio:||Y-You don’t need to go that far……. Anyways, it’s not like I know if I will make it through to the end……|
|Torahiko:||Akio. You can’t fulfill a goal if you don’t declare it clearly with your words!|
|Torahiko:||I will became an unrestricted idol!!|
|Torahiko:||Ehehe! It’s like declaration whenever I yell out my goal in words like this to say that I will definitely make it come true!|
|Torahiko:||That’s why, you should declare it in front of our fans in our upcoming live! Leave the timing to me!|
|Akio:||N-No way……. There’s no way I can make a declaration like that during our live in front of so may fans……|
|Shiki:||No, it can be done if it’s Akio. Like I said so before, I wouldn’t have thought that the old Akio wouldn’t be capable of doing things like this.|
|Shiki:||But what’s important was that you didn’t give up, and continued making the glass beads until now.
You should trust in yourself, Akio.
|Shiki:||We think that Akio would be able to definitely carry it through.|
|Shiki:||……You can do it right?|
|Akio:||……Yes! I’ll make that declaration right in front of the fans.|
|Torahiko:||Ehehe! That’s what makes you a member of ArS!
Be free in using the words that you want to use to convey it everyone!
|Torahiko:||If those words are Akio’s honest words, all of the fans will definitely understand!|
|Akio:||Yes. Everyone…… T-Thank you……|
|Akio:||(I’m so glad that I consulted everyone….. But I wonder why did Satsuki talk to the members about me?)|
