~~Trying to make a normal story that doesn't involve death... No, actually I started this a year ago but then it's really crappy, the formatting's crappy, so I decided to type this from the beginning.
The main idea of this story is P—stands for producer?—music producer, and of course, VocaloidP (ボカロP).
...And is there any equivalent English saying of 'yoroshiku onegaishimasu'? I have no idea, so, yoroshiku onegaishimasu.

At that very moment, I received a new email. Thinking it was just the usual alert from a website where I had an account there, I ignored it at first and continued my 'work'. That number '1' in brackets in front of the browser's tab title just sat there before I minimized the window, making it unseen. On my desktop, piano roll, audio spectrum and mixer were lined up neatly. Once again clicking the play button, music flowed from my headphone.
I smiled as the music ended. Finally getting the satisfaction, I clicked the record button.
I opened my mouth, took a deep breath and started singing.
Chapter One: New School Term, Okay.
I was kind of... regretting my action for ignoring the email on the previous night.
I found myself sitting in front of the computer in the morning, racing against the time because I had to go to school—it's the first day! The opening ceremony! Being a good kid, I had to attend, but there I was, tapping my left index finger impatiently as I clicked and typed things into the computer.
Because I completely had no idea that he had released a new song. I wasn't that sure that he was a 'he', since I have no idea of his face or voice (common things in the internet? Know the real gender of a person across the internet? Don't think so), like I care, it didn't matter. I didn't need to see his face or hear his voice or know his gender to become his fan.
"Rin! You want to be late or what?! Get down here and have your breakfast, then go to school as quick as possible!" My mother yelled from downstairs, making me jump slightly from my seat.
Her voice didn't sound 'good' in my ears. So I decided that leaving the computer was the best thing to do for that time.
I quickly closed all the windows without bothering to save anything and called back to my mother, "Coming!" I stayed there until the 'shutting down' message got displayed on the screen, and hurried down, not wanting to meet my angry mother.
A good thing that she didn't look as bad as I thought, she didn't yell anything after she saw my face in front of her eyes. She served the breakfast immediately as I took a seat on the dining table.
"Rin," My mother said while I was eating, so I gave her a muffled 'hm?' answer, "You certainly waiting for this, right? To be a high schooler..." She continued.
I smiled, "Not really, I'm not waiting for anything as long as I have my computer~!"
"Rin..." She muttered.
"Of course I was just kidding." I stated firmly. "But it's not a wrong thing to say that I'm not waiting for it as well..."
She just smiled, "Even if you say so, I bet you'll enjoy your new life in senior high! Making new friend, be more active in school activity and getting better!"
Again, I smiled, "Of course!"
Of course, what? The teacher was babbling about this school is this and this school is that, and I didn't bother to hear him—my mind was thinking about something else, the new song!
So it was a kind of 'normal' when I found myself busy looking at my phone as my homeroom teacher saying things about friends, works, blablablah (I wasn't hearing him but I know what he's talking about? Don't ask).
Actually I want to be a better girl as I entered senior high, but it's a hard thing to do...
Scrolling down the texts, I read the comments of the song one-by-one.
"Another great job!"
"As good as usual!"
"More! I want more!"
Gah! There were many comments already, mostly all of them said that the music was good and I hadn't heard it yet.
Thinking that I was beyond possible, I thought I would download it into my phone as hear it as soon as possible, but the teacher didn't say so. He suddenly called, "Okay, now it's your turn, the girl with white bow who's playing with the phone!"
I didn't put my whole attention to the phone, luckily I could still head the teacher's call and I answered him (yes, a male homeroom teacher... Not to mention his hair is pink), "Okay..." Then I stood up and and started to introduce myself, "My name is Kagamine Rin..."
I trailed off as I realized that I didn't know what to say next. What the others said anyway?
I pay the half of my attention only for the teacher, not the students. What a fail. Luckily the teacher told me what to say next, "And your interest? Anything you like?"
"Oh, I like music." I said shortly.
...Though it's a common interest. So telling that was no use at all.
"Okay, thank you for Kagamine Rin-san, the next is..." The teacher said, and I went back to my phone, not bothering to listen to the other students. I could remember their names later by myself, after all.
I clicked the 'download' button and waited it to be loaded into my phone. And as the 'download finished' message appeared on the screen, I could feel a smile form. But still, I have no courage to listen into the headphones... bluntly in front of the teacher. I should wait until the break finally came.
After that, I don't know why, my mind brought back to the class and I could find myself overhearing the two girls that happened to sit in front of me accidentally.
"Have you checked EV System's new song out?" The first girl asked.
The second girl pouted, "I haven't! My mom didn't let me to browse the internet! God, how annoying... All I heard is him having a new song that supposed to be good as usual... Gah! Now saying that makes me want to hear it even more!"
"So I'm not the only one who hasn't heard it! Glad... But aaah~ I wanna hear it so badly..."
It wasn't only me! I just found out that the number of unlucky people in Japan is pretty big!
I still haven't mentioned anything about that... EV System... A pretty popular music producer... over the web... just uploaded a new song the night before. And me, being his big fan, still hadn't hear it because I ignored the mail alert, thinking it was just an unimportant mail... Or worse, a spam message.
Maybe I really should focus more on my study rather than this... So I let out a sigh and decided to pay attention to the class, right when the teacher announced, "Okay class, I know you want to know each other better... So now I give you a free time to have a chit-chat with your classmate. Go on." He finished and the class became noisy in instance.
Some students had already made a group, then start talking to each other. And me? Don't ask. I was staying there on my desk, not knowing what to do and where to go. Then I decided to observe the class.
There was a group of girls... and a group of boys as well, then a mix of girl and boy... I saw no similarities, but maybe they had the same interest and were currently talking about that. And there, I also saw a pretty, cute looking girl with a flowing teal-hair in two-tails, walking from group to group but didn't stay at one group for a long time. From my angle, it looks like she was trying to join the group, but no one even bothered to notice her there.
Like, she was trying to make friends, but no one wants to be her friend. Not pitying her even a bit, I thought as well, 'At least she had tried...'
Then it hit me. What was I doing there, just sat on my desk watching everyone instead of knowing them better, just like the teacher said? I looked around again, finding a 'destination', a place (a group) to go.
But then I found someone who was also alone. Across my seat on the left corner, sat a girl, by herself. She was looking out from the window, not really caring about her surrounding. Maybe I could be her friend...
I stood up, but then I met the face of the teal-haired girl from before.
Then, the teal-haired girl and I decided to have a talk on my desk... Yeah, she was kneeling while I was sitting on the chair... What...
"I'm Hatsune Miku, nice to meet you!" She chirped happily as she extended her hand to me. Whoa, hold on. What's negative about her? Nice appearance, nice attitude (I think), and even a nice name... Still, I took her hand and shook it.
"You're Kagamine Rin, right? I've memorized your name from the time you introduced yourself." She said.
Add 'nice memory' to the list.
She didn't say anything after that. I didn't as well so...
The first awkward moment in my high-school life.
"Uh well, so what are you doing here?" I said, making a conversation, "People're talking in groups, and you don't join them..."
"Then what about you?" She asked back. "You sat here from the beginning and not even trying to bond with the others..."
...Though honestly, I wanted to, "I was going to go there, to someone at the other corner," I pointed at the girl, but it looked like she had got some friends to talk to... And all of them were boys? Then I continued, "But you asked me to talk with you..."
Surprisingly, she laughed, "Ah sorry-sorry, actually it's my fault, eh? I'm not going to bother you anymore, then."
"No! You're not bothering me at all! It's nice to talk to you..." I said... before I realized that sentence sounded awkward.
"Oh, that's great." She said with a confused look, no sarcasm detected from her voice. "Actually I'm happy that you want to talk to me in the first place. Thank you..."
Did I detect sadness from her voice?
"What do you mean? Of course I want to talk to you, who doesn't? A nice, kind girl like you..."
She laughed hollowly, "Almost everyone."
Then it hit me. She really was trying to make friends, but no one wants to be her friend, just like what I had said before.
"O-oh, I s-see... Sorry I really didn't mean to bring that topic up! Uh, really-really sorry!" I said frantically while waving my hands.
"It's okay, that always happens." She smiled. Wait, always happens, seriously?! "So... May I call you by your first name... Rin-chan?"
"Of course you can!" I said happily, "I will call you Miku-chan as well, then~"
Somehow, I felt happy... that I could make a new friend in the first day of school. No, I mean, that's great!
"Miku… chan." She repeated, her eyes softened as she said that. "I haven't heard anyone called me that for a while except my family—it's always Hatsune this and Hatsune that. Whoa, I'm happy that finally someone calls me that." She continued with a smile. "Thank you, Rin-chan."
"Um, it's supposed to be okay, no need to thank me." I said nervously. Really, I didn't think her life was that bad. I wasn't a really sociable person, but my life never has gone that bad.
She pouted and looked down to the floor after hearing my reply. "Well, it really means a lot for me, Rin-chan." She said. "Um… Is it okay for me to tell you something?"
"Yeah, what is it?" I asked.
"I love you, Rin-chan."
If I was in the middle of drinking something, I swore I would've spitted it out right at that time.
~~As you can see, Rin's also an utaite. And no, I'm not into Nico or YouTube utaite so let's not talk about that...
