Fragment 1Characters: Yuko (Hikari), Yuki, and AtsukoPrompt: distortionThe stage lights left Hikari feeling disoriented and the noise welled up within her head making her dizzy. She carefully moved through the choreography of the song, making sure to keep a smile on her face throughout the performance. They had given her a chance to prove herself and she wasn't about to let this fever stop her when her goal was within sight. The song ended and she ran after the other members, stopping once she reached the backstage area to steady herself. Taking another step forward, her knees nearly buckled but Yuki caught her before she could fall, gently lowering her to a sitting position. "Are you sure about this, Hikari?" Hikari gripped Yuki's hand and nodded. "Just a bit dizzy. Sorry for making you worry, Yukirin." Yuki frowned, but didn't push her further. Instead she called over to Atsuko and asked her to find some water while she fussed over the younger recruit. Yuki poked Hikari's cheek and sighed. "So stubborn." Atsuko returned within moments, kneeling down to hand Hikari a water bottle. She reached forward, gently brushed back Hikari's bangs, and offered a smile. "Think you're up for one last song?"Hikari nodded, taking a deep breath before attempting to stand once more. Yuki helped to steady her and Atsuko offered her a hand, which she gratefully accepted. As she straightened up, she met Atsuko's gaze and tightened her grip on the current center nova's hand. "I'll show you just how bright I can shine."
