- Seru -
Seru woke up and stretched his arms as he yawned, quickly covering his mouth after noticing that there were a lot of people there. It was just done on impulse, he was used to being lectured about proper behavior as an idol, so he has a mannered behaviour and actions, though, he might try to act differently sometimes. Observing his surroundings, he saw them just waking up as well 'Were we drugged or something? This is one mass kidnapping...' he sighed and remained calm like what was instructed by his manager during times like this 'If someone kidnaps you, remain calm and find a way to get out. Call the police if you can.' it rang in his head then leaned his back on the chair.
He went for his phone but he can't find it 'Odd... Did they take it?' he frowned and decided to stay quiet for now as someone started speaking in front, he was focused in escaping that he didn't manage to notice them before. After a few minutes of listening to the old man in front, he became confused 'Students? Things are getting weirder... I think I'm in a dream.' he slapped his face that he almost yelped 'Why did I do that?! It hurt.' sighing once more as he thought of these things. Getting hurt proved that he was not in a dream, or maybe.
Deciding to just watch in front, he observed the people there, as well as the signs "Albtraum Academy..." he muttered then read the next banner that said 'May Your Wishes Come True' that is when he remembered what just happened in real life. He suddenly had a heavy feeling, that of sadness. Unconsciously, tears began flowing out of his eyes, he remembered that his closest and only friend had just died. Depression started to grow in him again as he watched and listened to the man in front, then leaving the stage while he was replaced by someone.
That person gave a speech as well, telling things about the situation. It seems that they're in an academy that exists in a dream. She also said that the man from earlier was their headmaster, and this academy's purpose is to fulfill their dreams, if not, find them. Seru's face lit up as she said that 'Fulfill... our dreams?' he quickly dried his tears as that message gave him hope "Even if just in dreams..." he said with a slight smile. Then he sat back once more 'Even if just in dreams... I could wish for her to be alive again...' then he focused on listening once more.
The lady finished in a few minutes, she told them that they can be toured by going to someone named Bernice, but she also said that they could go to someone called Patrick, they both tour you to different places 'I should go see where I'm staying first...' he decided to go to this Bernice later. He didn't notice the two at the auditorium entrance as he was lost in thought.

- Ren -
A loud voice echoed in his ears, waking Ren up, groaning as he did. Then he said "Who's there?!" in a quite loud voice, he seemed irritated for being woke up. He didn't sleep early because he was playing games all night, that was all he could ever do anyway, a lonely life was led by him. Crossing his arms, he looked around him and noticed that he was in a crowd, this startled him "W-Why am I here..?!" he felt very awkward being around people, he isn't used to it and more importantly, he didn't like it. He lived his life with no one to call 'friend', he kept pushing away people. Leaning back as he groaned more, he listened in front. An old man spoke in the stage 'Ugh... Where am I exactly..?' he thought, noticing the big spaced area that he is in right now 'An Auditorium?' it seemed similar to his school's, that's why he assumed that. There were banners in front that welcomed them and another wished for their dreams to come true, but he didn't really mind it.
Then the man left with a young lady and was replaced by one of the adults standing at the back "What is it now?" he huffed, not noticing that his voice was different than usual, and that his view was shorter. That person introduced herself as Karen, and told them that the old man was their Headmaster 'Ugh. What a fat man.' then he focused on what was being said in front. After finishing, he just rolled his eyes 'Too surreal. Blasphemy.' he didn't think that those she said were true, and that all schools had 'Find your Dreams, Reach your Dreams, Become Independent' thing that they were saying and somewhat implementing to students.
He looked away and heard what the others were saying "You all actually believe that? Childish. Stop living in your fantasy worlds!" then he added in a voice louder than before "We're all probably kidnapped by them!" then sat again and clicked his tongue after the lady in front cleared her throat and continued her speech. Telling them where to go for their tour around the school, but Ren just said "I'll just go on my own. I don't trust people." then closed his eyes after sighing, trying to relax himself while thinking of his situation. The lady said that they were in Albtraum Academy, a dream academy, so maybe they were actually in a dream 'But there's too many people here. Are they all just people created by my dream?' sighing once more after deciding to push his thoughts away, it'll just make his head hurt he said.

- Kiri -
Kiri woke up while rubbing her eyes, then she looked in front "Oh? Where am I?" she looked around her and saw that there were others that are just waking up right now "It's like in the movies, but I am probably dreaming." she said as she remembered right away that she slept in her house, protected as every window and door were closed and locked "Unless we were spirited away, I can understand that. Fufufu..." she chuckled as she patted her dress, not really being surprised by it as she loved sleeping in her costumes. Then she sat gracefully and observed the stage in front.
There were banners that contained different messages. One was welcoming them to Albtraum Academy 'That would probably where we are right now. Right?' and another was wishing for their wishes to come true 'Wishes? Fufufu.' she suddenly thought of wishing for her to be rich, but it hasn't been guaranteed as to where she really is yet "If I am in a dream, then I can try to have fun for a bit. If I am kidnapped, then I am doomed. If I am in a magical place, then I will have that wish. Fufufu... I like the third one." she said while her finger was on her chin, then she placed her hands on her lap as she concentrated on the next speaker.
The old man left the stage and a lady that introduced herself as Karen stood in front and continued to her speech. She introduced the man from earlier, as well as his wife "Headmaster. Not so handsome. His wife looks young, that's rare." then Karen told them the purpose of the academy, something about it letting the students find their dreams and fulfilling their dreams "I do hope you are speaking literally, I like the sound of fulfilling my dream. Fufu~" she chuckled like how those rich ladies does in the animes.
Then Karen continued, telling everyone that they could go to either Bernice or Patrick for the tours "I'd like to see the cafeteria. They better have a lovely cuisine, those that fit my kind." she said in a sadistic way that some people around her became confused or frightened, they had a weird expression. Kiri stood up and walked while her hands were in front, she was headed to the doors, where someone was at right now.
Arriving, leaning to the front for a bit as she saw a boy "Who might you be?" she asked him while giving a smile "And what do you mean by that, I wonder?" she was thinking of what the boy said about their hard work going down the drain, they didn't do any work, so that was probably directed to the people on the stage. Kiri just asked that so that they may have a conversation, maybe.
