Summary: To start a new life is everything Aiba wants. And his new work place in a different host club brings him a bunch of new friends.

When Aiba left the club it felt like a load off his mind. He knew he’d never come back to here, and he was even sure that he wouldn’t get close to this area either. It was part of his life he wanted to delete. He didn’t want to be reminded about it.

A new start was given to him, and he would take this chance to change his life. He walked down the street, a smile curling around his lips. Aiba felt sore and tired, extremely tired, but he also felt free and full of strength again.

He would stay with a friend for one night and change to his new home on the next day. He was nervous about the club he’d start working. His friend organized everything for him. “Everything will be alright,” Aiba whispered. He tried to stay positive during all the things he needed to go through. But with this new chance he felt like throwing up. It was a positive thing happening to him, but he didn’t expect it to happen.

Aiba rubbed over his wrists. He could feel the bruise there. It reminded him of old days, and when he got nervous he always rubbed over it – probably to calm himself down.

It was the first time since years ago that Aiba realized the warm feeling of the sun tickling on his skin. The numbness of his body seemed to retire. The world, which seemed to be grey and lifeless for Aiba, turned into something colourful and even the birds were singing, like they welcomed him to a new part of his existence.

He sat on a bench in the small garden around the area of the new club. He looked at the building and the various windows over there. Some of them were open and Aiba thought he could hear some people laughing. “That would be the best,” he whispered.

It had been ages since he laughed for real. His good mood and smiles were just because he needed to be like this. It was the perfect masquerade he had built up. But the laughter he heard from over there, were real once. They were unforced and just like a summer breeze, salty like the sea and sweet like the smell of ice cream – things Aiba once loved more than anything else.

Some small white clouds were dancing on the sky, carried away by the wind. The club’s house looked like a family manor. He could see two guys standing at the window, chatting with each other. They looked happy.

Happiness – a word Aiba hadn’t used for years. He didn’t even know how it felt to be happy. When did his life turn out to be like this? And how should he get out of this numb feeling he still had?

In Aiba’s memory his old home turned into a dark, dead place – and in the end he didn’t even have one single good memory of it.

Aiba breathed out deeply, like he wanted to get rid of the last bad emotions he had. “A new life,” he said again. Something in his belly jumped in delight. He placed his hand on his stomach and concentrated on this feeling.

With his eyes closed he tried to memorize this feeling of being alive, like he woke up after a winter sleep – which lasted two years.

Aiba was a little bit afraid of his new work, but in the end he knew that it couldn’t get worse. “You’ll see they’ll care about you,” his friend said to him when he picked him up from his old home.

“You won’t be alone there, I promise this to you.”

Aiba had no friends except him, and he didn’t trust anyone since he experienced the worst things with so called friends. But with this one person it was different. He was the brother Aiba never had. He was the family he missed in his life. That’s why he believed in his words, and he knew that this new start would be okay – just because his friend said so.

“Till tomorrow.” Aiba smiled when he left the garden to go to his friend’s place. He took a last look at the house before he walked down the street.

A new start to a new life…

I promise it won't be too dark at all. It's just the beginning which is a little depressive and darker, but with the other members appearing it will become sunny ;)

Thanks soooo much for reading and commenting, dear <3 <3 <3

Poor thing. Has he been held prisoner somewhere? I am extremely curious to read the next chapter. Hopefully things will be better for him soon.

The prologue is still vague. Aiba past was a host, better life also a host but more at luxury, distinguish club? So I'm waiting for the 1st chapter to understand it better also Sakumiya :)

Strong start, definitely! I love the imagery of this... of how Aiba feels and sees his surroudings and how it works as a metaphor for his new life. I hope he will be at a good place now! I'm kinda curious what happened to him before!
Well, I'll see :D

Thanks for writing a sharing! <3
