William Sinclair, The Maestro
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Maestro William was looking out at the window when Merriot came in. Merriot spoke, “Luchia informed me that Hikaru is missing again. It’s been a week already and there doesn’t seem to be any change. What will happen to the City at this rate. Really.” “That is a problem. The girl didn’t even have the eyes to rule. It was dull and lifeless… Anyway, I’ll get Nanashi so we can have a meeting on this.”

The following day, Hikaru was wandering around the garden again. She stopped near the pond. She gazed absent-mindedly at her reflection on the shimmering water. “Ruler. Huh? That is something impossible for me to become. Mother and Father don’t expect anything from me anymore. How can the Elders even think I can rule the City…” As Hikaru was lost in thought, Luchia caught sight of her. She approached Hikaru and said, “I finally found you. So this is where you’ve been the whole time? There is a lot of paperwork to be done. But more importantly, the Elders are calling for you. They have an important announcement.” Hikaru thought to herself, “Must be bad. That is what my existence has always been…” She gave a sigh and reluctantly went with Luchia.

“Have a seat. We’ve been waiting”, said William. When Hikaru took her seat, Merriot continued in a cold tone, “You’re performance is very unbecoming. As the ruler of the City, you should put more effort!” Nanashi interrupted, “Calm down, Merriot. Don’t get carried away with your emotions. Getting angry will result to nothing.” “You’re right. But I have my policy. I detest irresponsibility.” Hikaru remained expressionless. Merriot became quite irritated and said, “Are you even listening?” Hikaru just gave a nod. After that a heavy atmosphere surrounded the room.

William poured tea which put everyone at ease. He said, as he held his cup of tea, “We called you here as Merriot emphasized, you haven’t been doing your duties. We talked about it and we decided, we will take over half of the work in exchange… You’ll be going to school starting tomorrow.” Hikaru who was unattentive a moment ago became so bewildered with the comment. A “what?!!!” escaped from her mouth. She then quickly composed herself and asked how this was all possible. Merriot supplied the necessary information, “We made a decree stating that the military school will be compulsory for everyone. You can’t have objections since it has already been announced.” William added, “While in school, you will be using the name Hotaru Mikawa.” Hikaru who doesn’t seem pleased said, “Most of the people who know I am the princess are dead. So what is the need of using an alias?”
“This is just a necessary precaution. Think of it as a condition like the one you are living in the palace. In the palace you have the identity of a high noble while in school, it is the name Hotaru Mikawa.”
Merriot concluded, “Well all’s been said, we’ll be taking our leave now, we still have other business to attend to.” With that, Merriot and William left the room.

Nanashi who was left behind tapped Hikaru in the back. She had a beaming smile while she said, “They forgot to mention something.” Hikaru replied, “What is it?”
“You will have to take an entrance exam to know your class.”
“Um, ok.”
“Tomorrow.”
“What?!”
“The test is tomorrow. Good luck.”
Hikaru thought to herself, “Life couldn’t get any worse. I wonder what other changes will occur next…” She gave up thinking and let off a sigh.

End of chapter 1.

Yes. There's a lot of characters that will be introduced in the next chapter. I'm currently reading each member's character description. You just might get the chance to be part of the story.

I'm giving a warning, the next part isn't as good as the others. I find it boring and it needs a lot of revision at the moment.

Anyway, feel free to give me bad comments too. So I know how to make the story more interesting.

Ah, this might get even more interesting... I think everyone will be wainting impatiently for the next chapter.
I hope the singer clan might finally be introduced.
