FINALLY the auditorium was open and free! Deedee grinned from ear to ear as she walked in and looked around. Hitting the light switches they lite up the place. The idol club was meeting up to talk about and practice for there up coming showcase. Which she was very hyped for.
She had been talking about it unstop at home, she was pretty sure her mother, grandmother and Raiden was of hearing about it. But said nothing to her and just smiled. Deedee was also excited about who was coming. Even though she haven't asked Mikey she was hoping he would come. Just thinking about seeing his face in the crowed with that sweet smile made a knot form in her stomach.
Shaking her head she then wrinkle her face up. She had something to do and thinking about him was not going to get it done!
Letting out some air she walked up the steps of the stage and dropped her bag. Opening it up she pulled out a clipboard that had some paper on it. Looking over the club list she smiled to herself. Everyone was so talented! The showcase was going to be great! No not great, it was going to AMAZING!
Heading to the edge of the stage she flopped down and kicked her legs. Now all she had was wait for everyone else to get here so they could start.
It felt like ages since Yu-ri had been back in this auditorium! In reality it was only a few days, while she'd been back home in Korea to see her Grandmother who was ill. Once her health had turned around her, her brother, and her eomma had returned to Japan and back to normal school life. Only her father had stayed because his job so demanded it.
As soon as she pushed open those big, heavy doors she took a deep breath and beamed. Thinking she was alone, she got ready to skip her whole way over towards the stage but caught side of Deedee only just in time. With a sheepish smile, Yu-ri let the doors fall shut behind her and she walked slowly to the stage, waving ecstatically at the other member.
"Hey! Look whose back just in time!" Yu-ri winked, plopping her school bag onto the stage's edge with a loud 'twhump!' It loosened only enough to let one of her schoolbooks peek out a little, but everything else remained (haphazardly) secured inside.

Suzu rushed down the hallway, a hand holding her wig in place as she skidded to a halt in front of the door. She hadn't initially been planning on taking part in the showcase, but Deedee and Scarlet had convinced her to change her mind. She had so many songs she wanted to do. It had taken her quite a while to settle on which ones to do for the show.
With a quick adjustment of her wig and her mask, she pushed open the doors. Only Deedee and Yu-ri were here so far. Both of them were her senpai. Suzu always felt so nervous around the older students. Just the slightest slip-up could reveal her real identity to the world....and that would be bad. No way in hell did Suzu want her sister finding out.
"Hi!" she greeted, rushing up to the stage. She hopped up onto it, dropping her bag off to the side somewhere. She smiled at Yu-ri, offering a bit of a bow. "Welcome back, Chen-senpai!" she greeted.
It almost felt strange walking to the auditorium, having to think about Idol Club stuff at all. Ageha had been so busy with the Dance Team that her Idol Club responsibilities (and the upcoming showcase) nearly slipped her mind. Nearly. She'd still made plans, of course. She just hadn't gotten to meet with the people involved with them so much.
It wasn't totally her fault.
Ageha pushed through the auditorium doors, catching sight of Yu-ri first and sidling immediately next to her, giving her a light slap on the shoulder. "It's about time you showed up." Her tone was stern, but the faintest smile tugged at her lips. It wasn't like Yu-ri wouldn't have been here today; they ate lunch together earlier.
Ageha turned her attention to Deedee and the... weird, masked girl. Ageha never paid much attention to her. She hung around Finn a lot, though, and he never shut up about her. What was her name again? Phantom...? Phantom of the Opera...? Whatever.
"Hey, Yamazaki... You." It wasn't her fault Phantom of the Opera didn't have a real name!

Deedee was busy reading a text message she had gotten that she didn't notice the doors opening. She finally looked up when she heard the heavy doors closed behind the person that came in. Spotting Yu-Ri waving at her she smiled and waved back just as ecstatically. "Hey Ri ChuChu! I'm glad your back! Is your grandmother doing better?" She asked her as she stood to her feet. As she was got close enough she gave her a quick hug. "How hyped are you about the showcase!?"
Just as she asked this the door opened again and Phantom Song walked in. She waved at the girl and smiled once she joined them on stage. She remember that she wasn't going to join the showcase at first until Scarlett and her talked her into it.
Deedee wonder what song that masked girl was going to sing. Now that she thought about it she still needed to pick out what she was going to do! Well of course she remember that she was dancing with Scarlett but everything else...was not picked yet.
She was snapped out of her thoughts as she head the doors opening once more. Glancing over she smiled at Ageha and nodded her head. "Hi Ageha senpai, are you ready for the up coming showcase?"
Yu-ri turned her head in time to see the Phantom striding over to them. Her eyes narrowed a little as she measured up the girl. She still had yet to figure out this mystery but by god she was going to dig into this case if it was the last thing she ever did. Yu-ri hated not knowing something. She knew everything! About everyone! Whether they were a celebrity idol on the internet or if they were just some scholarship genius at the school or even if they were some well known netizen.
Now she didn't wish any ill-intent or anything towards the Phantom performer, of course. But her own hunger for gossip and information was nagging at her to discover this secret. Their couldn't be too many people in this school! She'd already spent the past few months since she meant Phantom Song ( pooling her efforts with Scarlett's ) to crack the code.
Pleasantly, though, she beamed at the mysterious girl. "Hi!" She waved. At least the mystery girl(?) was nice! She craned her neck to face Deedee again and nodded. "Yeah! My Eomma is still there a little longer, for the weekend, before she comes back. But she didn't want me and Jiwoo being out of school so long so she had us come back."
A small, high-pitched squeak erupted from Yu-ri when she reunited with Ageha. It was as if it had been a month rather than a week and she instantly threw her arms around the older girl's shoulders, briefly embracing her. She rocked back and forth on the heels of her feet to the tips of her toes in little jumps before finally letting Ageha go. "I'm definitely ready for the showcase!" Yu-ri nodded at the other three girls. "I was really scared about missing it after all the practice."

Suzu never felt comfortable around Ageha. She felt like the older girl either didn't like her or thought she wasn't good enough. Ageha never addressed her as anything short of 'you', despite Suzu reminding her, politely, that everyone pretty much just called her 'Phantom'. She let it go, though. She didn't really have any reason to begrudge the older student other than her....obvious....attitude.
"Hello, Okamoto-senpai," she greeted, trying to be as friendly as possible.
With that, she turned her attention back to Deedee and Yu-Ri. They all were so familiar with each other and Suzu still felt so awkward around them, but she would have liked to consider them friends.
She shook her head at Yu-Ri's fear of missing it. "I'm sure the rest of us would have petitioned to postpone it until you got back if that was the case, Chen-senpai." She would have, at least. She wanted the club to perform together.
Ageha let Yu-ri clamor over her, stiffening the slightest bit at her touch, surprise washing over her face. Really? She had to do this now? In front of other people? Once Yu-ri settled, Ageha hooked an arm around her shoulders, patting lightly at her back before Yu-ri let go. Now that that was over, Ageha could address Deedee. Ageha looked over at her. How was she supposed to answer that?
"Sure." Good enough. Between everything going on with the Dance Team and waiting for Yu-ri to return from Korea, she hadn't had as much time to rehearse as she wanted, but she knew what she was going to perform, at least. Yeah. That was definitely good enough. She couldn't help but shoot Phantom of the Opera a sidelong glance for her comment. "I would have forced them to postpone it whether they liked it or not. There's no 'rest of us' in this."
Honestly! She and Yu-ri had big plans for the showcase; half her performances would be nonexistent if Yu-ri couldn't make it.

"That's good to hear about your grandmother!"Deedee said as she smiled and nodded her head, she was always glad to hear when someone was doing better from being or something. As the topic of postponing the showcase came up she started to say something but was cut off by the others. Letting out a small sigh she shrugged it off. "Trust me Ageha-senpai wouldn't have to do that after I tell everyone what was going to be done and add what I say goes." She said as she place her hands on her hips, Deedee was the club president so at the end of everything what she say goes. Plus Yu-ri had a lot songs that she was doing with other people and it wouldn't be fair to them for the show to go on.
Glancing at the time she sighed and again and looked around only a few people was here but it was enough to start anyway. "Okay it's only a few of us here but I can start and fill the others in when they get here. So pretty everyone knows the show case is coming up soon and I wanted everyone to get a chance to pick what order they go in." She explain as she walked over to the edge of the stage and picked up the clipboard. Going through the names she then looked up at the others. Oh and Ageha-senpai I want you do the closing performance since they are usually done by the third year students."
Once everything was said that was needed to be said she moved off to the side of the stage. "Alright so who ever want to start practice off then you can."
Souta snuck in at the back of the auditorium as Deedee addressed the assembled members. When she finished her announcements and moved off the stage he grinned and hurried down the stairs, two at a time, until he reached the little assembled group of Yu-Ri, Ageha, mask girl, and Deedee.
"Hi! Sorry I'm late!" He checked his watch, checking how late he actually was, then grinned and turned back to the girls, "Archery ran over a bit, I had to change." He dropped his bag down on the floor and crossed over to Yu-Ri, sweeping her up in a hug and grinning, "Good to see you back safe! How's your grandma?"
Finally releasing Yu-Ri, he looked around at the other assembled girls and grinned, folding his arms. His eyes fell on Ageha and his face fell slightly, but his smile returned full force almost immediately. Sure he was still sad about everything happening in the dance team but that was neither here nor there. He had to focus on the now! "Hey, did you want to practice our song today? I've been practicing!"
"Hey Deedee-Chan!" He smiled before looking down at mask girl and he held up a hand, "Hey Christine-Chan." He looked around at everyone assembled, "Who's excited for the Showcase?? I am! Aaaaand--" He smiled annoyingly, "I have it on good authority that people from Avex Trax are coming to see it." His smiled seemed to brighten, "God, it's not here yet and I'm so excited!"
"A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn, not easily mended."
