[Toudou Channel]
{I, searched for Hoshino-san. Hoshino-san is as usual, putting on
a smile at the studio. It looks likes everyone is taking precaution
not talk about the audition. The girl also, looks as though that
she was not affected by it. I asked Hoshino-san, just to make sure.}
P: Hoshino-san, are you alright?
{She, instantly replied with a smile.}
A: Yes. I am fine. ---> [The coolest BGM of the game begins :D]
{Those words, looks as though, she is reading from a script. It 
pained my heart. In addition to that, Hoshino-san as usual do 
her job, perfectly. I also do my job without thinking much. Before
I realized it, Hoshino-san is not around anywhere at the studio. I
went to search for Hoshino-san with my heart pounding noisily.}

[Street]
{Hoshino-san, is alone at the back of the Television Station.}
P: Ah, Hoshino-san...
{Hoshino-san, who has her back facing me, looks... as though she is
crying.}
A: Ah...
P: Hoshino-san...
{She looks at me with eyes that feels like a flame. Her repressed
emotions, is felt by me.}
A: ... !
{I could not think of anything to say.}
[Animation: Holding back her tears, but failed. The tears came out.
She then run and hug you.] ---> [Another emotional scene...]
A: It came out... It came out... !
{Hoshino-san started to cry. I don't know what to do to make things
right. But, I am the only one who must do something about it. Looking
at her most hidden feeling, my hearts begin to fill with passion.
... I have been patience. I wait until she stop crying. The time was
not a pleasant one. I went back inside together with the girl, when
she stopped crying. Even though she kept her silence, myteriously
I feel that our space is filled...

[At your home]
P: (Fuu....) ---> [Let out a breath]
{When I arrived home, I dropped down my heavy camera equipment. This
could be the first time I ever feel the heaviness of the camera.} 
P: (Hoshino-san...)
{The tear of Hoshino-san due to her failing the audition, cannot 
disappeared from my eyes.}
P: (Why... Why... she did her best...)
P: (She is really looking forward to be projected onto the screen.)
{It looks like she shed tears that are unbearable. I could not think
of any way to cheer her up.}
P: (Hoshino-san...)
{I realized about how the girl has become a big part of me. I am 
willing to do anything to stop the girl from sheding those tears.}
P: (The things that I can do now...)
{Inside my mind, I remembered Hoshino-san's words.)
P: (That...)
{"Your University's building wall looks as white as the theatre screen--"}
---> [These are the words of Asuka-chan said to you, when she came to your 
university to perform for the school festival. (First Disc)]
{I remembered those words. I look at the camera that I just dropped.}
P: (That's it. I have taken more pictures of Hoshino-san's smile than
   anybody else.) ---> [Stalker!!!:D]
{With that thought, I thought up an idea.}
P: On the University's building wall, the girl's smile will be...
{The equipment to project a picture, my club have them.}
P: (The school wall won't lose to a big screen!)
{Even with that, I don't think I could end her feelings. But, what I
can do, I do it with my best. That's what I want to do. With those 
thoughts, I starts thinking out my plans. First, it must be at night,
or else the idea won't work.}
P: (Okay! Let's go to Hoshino-san's place!)

[Street]
{I grabbed my camera, I ran out of my apartment. The camera's heavy 
weight, I don't care anymore.}

A: Yes...

P: That is... I cannot say it here.
A: ... What do you mean?
P: It's not that I trying to trick you. It's just that... even if 
   I explain now, I don't think you would understand me...

A: It's okay, but---
P: I will be back soon...

quickly set things up. Then, I return to the girl---}
P: --- Thank you for waiting. Please come this way, Hoshino-san...
A: Okay...

[Your University Building] --->[The cool music is up again :D]
A: Ah... ! Th.. this is---!
{Hoshino-san, said with surprising voice. On the school wall, the girl
is projected. It's one of the pictures that I took of her. And, it is
the picture with her best smile. She silently looking at the school wall
for a while. The sad face slowly become more gentle. For a moment, she 
turn her face to look at me.}
A: Hey...
P: Huh...?
A: ...
P: Hoshino-san...?
{To listen her better, I walk to her side---}
P: --- Hoshino-san.
A: This smile of mine... That person in the heaven can see it, right...?
P: Yeah... For sure...
{I agree with her.}
A: The wish that I have been wishing for so long, I can't believe it will
   come true in a situation like this...
{With those words, the girl begin to lost in thoughts. How to say it. It
is a face, which is somewhat relief and somewhat lonely. That face, 
slowly become more cheerful.}
{Before long---.}
P: It's nearly morning, Hoshino-asn---
A: Yeah...
P: This is something I can do, so if you ever want to see it again, I 
   can show it to you again... It's time to go...
A: Ahh.... !
{Slowly, it become whitened. The projected image of her smile on the 
wall, started to fade away...}
[Animation: The girl grap your arms. The picture gone from the wall.]
{Then...}
P: It's gone, isn't it...
A: ... It's okay. In the place of that, a new today has begun...
P: Hoshino-san...
A: Hey... Can I ask you to do one thing for me?
P: What's that...?
A: From today onward, I want you... to call me "Asuka"...
P: Not "Asuka-chan"?
A: Yes...
A: To the fan, I am the idol, Asuka-chan, but...
A: In front of you, I want to be your only "Asuka"...

{Hoshino-san's dream, did not come true. But, that is what happening
today. Hoshino-san will continue to chase after her most important
dream.}
P: Do your best, Hoshino-san.
A: Yes. Just look at me!
[Animation: Asuka-chan on stage :D ]
{Hoshino-san's cheerful singing voice could be heard. I will look after
her by her side. For a moment, my eyes met with hers. I feel as though

I will be there to look after her. After all, I really love her...
