The Following Day...
Music Room 3, Ouran Academy, 4 pm
Benio sat on the sofa, stirring a tea biscuit around in her tea, her attention was more on the biscuit, than of Tamaki's performance. She had chosen him to play the rival for Akari's heart, in their play, because she felt that it would be more believable that a narcissistic fool like him would be rejected. Tamaki had just gotten to the part, where he had to declare his love for Akari.
"Again," Benio told him.
"I've had to redo this scene four times!" Tamaki protested. "Can you at least tell me what I keep doing wrong?"
"If you can't learn from your mistakes, then why should I tell you?" Benio asked, starring him out.
Tamaki and Benio stared each other out for a couple of minutes, before Tamaki had to start his scene over again. He held Akari's hand, and bowed, with his hand on his chest, he was just about to say his line, when Benio stopped him again. She stood up, and walked towards him.
"Are you truly that dense, or are you acting?" Benio asked. "The former seems more likely."
"If you're such an expert, then why don't you show me where I'm supposed to be going wrong?" Tamaki argued, in his over dramatic fashion.
"Gladly," Benio replied, with a smirk.
"You show him, Benio," Chizuru said, happily.
"When reciting lines, your body must face forward," Benio said, facing her audience. The audience was just Chizuru, Hinako, and Arisu measuring Honey for his costume. "Any glances to your leading lady is a side profile of face only." Benio turned her head, to face Akari. "At all times, keep your lady at arms length - both hers and yours. It is always more romantic that way, to twirl her into an embrace..." Benio said, holding Akari's hand, and keeping her at arms length.
"And, how does that have anything to do with what I was supposed to be doing wrong?" Tamaki argued. He saw what Benio was talking about, but he didn't want to admit it.
"You shield the sweet maiden from the eyes of the audience," Benio accused, while pointing at him. "For you see, you are not muttering words of love, to a delicate blossoming maiden like Akari... you are saying those words to the audience!" The dramaticness of her words raising, as she said the last part.
"Benio is such a wonderful actress," Hinako said, with adoration.
"She is..." Chizuru agreed.
"How? I don't see it," Kaoru said, boredly.
"All she's doing, is making Akari an ignored character," Hikaru said, finishing Kaoru's sentence.
"You fail to see the beauty of it," Benio said, appearing behind them.
"Every maiden longs to feel like the most divine and beautifulest maiden, in all the universe," Chizuru said, closing her eyes, while she muttered the words they told each new cast member.
"And, all of our audience deserves to feel that way," Hinako added. She too, had taken Benio's words to heart.
"No maiden wants to hear words of love muttered into the ear of another," Benio said, returning to her place beside Akari. "We allow each maiden, to imagine herself in our leading lady's place."
"Quiet intriguing," Kyoya said, while taking notes in his black book. "So, your vision for each of your shows and concerts, is allowing them free to fantasize."
"That is correct," Benio confirmed.
When rehearsals began again, Hikaru turned to Haruhi, and said, "Remind me never to mess with the Zuka Club ever again."
"You won't listen to me," Haruhi pointed out.
Chizuru: Our opening night is almost here, and you are working so hard, Benio...
Hinako: You always work so hard. Why do you put so much effort into each show?
Benio: Well, my dears, I work hard for all my darling fans. Join us next time, on St. Lobelia Academy Zuka Club, when the secret of my success will be revealed. Until next time, Adieu!
A/N: So, that is the end of the episode! :D I hope you enjoyed reading it. Well, adieu!
