Name: Michael McMillon
Age: 29 years old
Artistic name: Angelico
Role: Idol, singer, model

Charismatic, strong-willed, determined, manipulative. Never one to cease on his attempts to reach his goals, no matter what he has to do to achieve them.

Michael was a normal guy not that long ago. He had a channel on YouTube and had been uploading videos about multiple topics ever since he was younger. Video-games, his views of any modern topic that he considered mattered. Even fashion and other issues had been addressed, making him grow steadily popular, acquiring many followers while he was at it. Things quickly escalated to other social media, like twitter, facebook or instagram. It was rare not to see an account in any of those, or similar, social media with the username "Angelico" and Michael's face adorning it. Always as handsome as he could make himself look in front of the camera. With the latest and most expensive clothes once he started earning some money, even becoming the public face of a few of those products. Eventually turning into what was commonly known as an "influencer". Of course things didn't stop there.

The young man started being called for TV programms and offered to do some advertisings on the small screen. While his popularity kept growing and growing, until he was finally offered to do a performance in public. Once he revealed he liked singing, he started doing public concerts in which he'd sing whatever song he felt like, of course all of them from other authors. Until now, in this new concert he was going to star in, he had announced he'd be singing a song that was all his, for once. Of course that was what the public had been told, but not even that single song was actually Michael's piece of art. It was a piece of art, but it was a different person the one who had worked on writing it. His childhood friend and right-hand man, probably.


One of the few who still remained by his side and had gotten to know Michael when he wasn't popular yet. "Are you sure I can sing your song today?" The blonde man finally inquired, preparing himself while applying some make-up on his pale face. He was currently in his own dressing room, getting ready for the upcoming concert. With the sole company of that hidden presence who had shown him some deep support ever since Michael's fate was still uncertain.

Kyriel Thomas McMillan III is his true given name but ever since the scandal that involved him and one of his private tutors, he had no choice but to fled his country of origin or be subjected to a military school of his father's choosing. His father is an international attache, they are almost royalty belonging to old money. Kyrie or Kai most prefer the latter since he always thinks he was always mistaken as a girl with a girly nickname given by his mother so he prefers to be called Kai.

His father is a workhorse and known to be a workaholic, and he wanted the same thing for his one and only heir. But sadly his son's head was filled with lyrics and music something he never condones and worked so hard to rid him with. He had successfully vanquished the said tutor and relocated him successful that he would never work with any diplomatic family ever again. Because of the rumors and the scandal involving his son and the tutor he had no choice but to send him to a different town and school where no one knows who he is and what he is. Kai had laid low for a while and try not to alert any of his father's spy that he had been writing lyrics again. He even took up engineering just to be sure that he has a clean slate with his father.

There was a time when he was trying to write music at the rooftop when one of his music sheets flew out of his hand got caught by a complete stranger. That said stranger befriended him, and he had been alone all this time so a welcomed company who also has a passion for music is most welcomed.

He didn't see the harm of Michael singing one of his songs, as long as he wouldn't reveal who wrote it originally, he would rather remain obscure than creating more rumors that might alert his father. So when Michael asked, he agreed for him to sing it. He just didn't like the rumors floating around the campus that he is a stalker. But as long as Michael promised not to divulge his secret he was fine writing more lyrics for him.

"It's no problem you can sing it, as long as you let me watch your performance, it has been a while that I had been in one of those. But backstage would be most suitable for me," he said, not wanting to say that so that no bodyguards of his father would see him back there since most people with a pass and an ID are allowed back there.

"I already cued the music for you, all you need to do is hit the play button and you are all set." he added.

Michael finished preparing himself and turned to gaze at Kyriel, or Kai, which was the name he used the most to address to his right-hand man, and probably best friend. Truth be told, the blonde idol didn't have a clue of Kai's past. Nor had ever inquired about it. He was rather self-centered, most of the time worried exclusively about the number of followers he had in his many accounts and applications, or the number of views his videos received on YouTube. He was also overly worried about his popularity and physical image, to the point he'd freak out if he ever noticed a spot of sorts was adorning his otherwise flawless, from Michale's point of view, skin.

In that regard, he wasn't that different from the typical cheerleader or popular girl prototype. Only focused on appearances, without noticing what was in he interior of everyone else. Nor caring about it in the slightest. Thus, Michael was currently unaware of what kind of feelings Kai might harbor towards him. He saw him as a reliable friend, the only one he could share his deepest concerns with. As well as an unshakeable support for him. The fact all Kai asked in return of letting Michael use his lyrics was anonymity worked perfectly fine with what Michael wanted: use such a wonderful song and be capable of saying he had been the one who wrote it.

Thus why he was asking. To make sure he had understood everything correctly. It sounded far too good for him, the deal Michael and Kai currently had. "Okay then. I owe you one, man. I can't believe you asked me yourself to refrain from saying the songs are yours. That means I can take credit for them, right? Oh but don't worry. I'll treat you well in return, okay? What if I take you to dinner today after my performance? Unless you have other things to do, of course." After he said that, Michael nodded at Kai's words. Both at the fact the music was already prepared and his request of observing the whole concert from a secured position in the backstage.

"Works with me dude. As you please. You aren't a people person though...are you?" He then joked, along with a faint chuckle, and turned around several times in front of the other man. Showing his figure clad in a dark, elegant shirt and some dark pants, as well as a pair of equally dark boots with small heels on them. "I heard girls like taller men, so I have to appear to be quite tall. Also, dark seems to be always the fanciest trend. How do I look? Aren't I handsome?" Michael finally inquried, wanting to hear his friend's opinion before he finally went to the stage and started singing for the crew gathered there. Some faint voices calling "Angelico, Angelico!" in unison could also be heard from the other side, most of them of a feminine nature.

Surprisingly when Kai writes he wears glasses so he took it off, they are actually low-grade lenses mostly for reading, but he uses it for disguise as well. Although he must admit Michael is fairly good looking and probably the same age as he compared to the tutor at least he was pretty sure they would have things to talk about.

He was eyeing him actually he is the type of guy that is his type but of course, he is not gonna tell him that. He didn't want to be shipped to military school or worse, he would be fixed to marry some rich attache's daughter.

He sighed as he looked at the notes that were put in his mailbox, nope they are not fan mails at all, they are actually more death threats than anything else. He started receiving them when people started seeing them hanging out together. He hasn't said anything not only because he likes hanging out with Michael, but also he is the only friend he's got. So he kept it to himself, hoping it would get tired after a while and leave him alone. Besides he thinks it would surely die down after a while once they see that he is not a treat to anyone.

Upon seeing his friend didn't reply to any of his questions, Michael tilted his head. If he was a normal person, or the least concerned about others, he would have waited until the other male actually replied or shown any sign of having listened to his latter questions. But he simply shrugged and appeared in front of his needy fans. Singing the song Kai had written in front of the crowd, the equipment and music working well enough to garantee the performance was at least decent. Thankfully Michael didn't have that bad of a voice either. That along with his good-looking appearance was part of the reason why his popularity had increased so much in such a short period of time.

When everything was finally over, Michael politely bid farewell to his fans. Even repeating a few songs once or twice, as per the public's request, and then simply retired to the backstage. Bumping against Kai in his way back to his dressing room. A few drops of sweat falling down his bare forehead. "Did you see me, Kai?" Michael simply inquired, a wide, smug smirk adorning his face. "Did you like my performance?"

Kai was amazed at how amazing a performer Michael is he can really wow a crowd. And his song, he had never heard anyone sing it that way before.

"That was amazing. You are amazing, you sang it the way I have always pictured it to be sung," he said, beaming at him.

But before Kai can say anything more a man walked over to Michael and introduced himself as an agent and if he would like Michael to be one of his talents, he said he can help him boost his career. "And if you sing more original songs like that you would be the next singing idols." He added, not realizing that the real composer of the lyrics and song is the other one who was waiting at the side wings of the backstage.

Kai didn't say anything and continued smiling even if the man just stepped in between them rudely without even as much as an excuse me before butting in and rudely pretending he didn't even see that Michael and Kai are talking.

Kai hasn't been telling Michael what had been happening to him lately due to Michael's increased in fans, and now that he had sung some original songs, he had increased his followers and fans, they are clamoring for this unique and wonderful star who not only sings so captivatingly but also writes his own songs, of course, not that Kai wanted a cut into the business or anything in return, but lately, the fans are getting aggressive and scary. One group of fans waiting for Kai to stepped out of the classroom, they grabbed him and locked him in one of the dumpsters, and that day was trash day, it was a good thing someone heard him banging and calling for help before the dump trucks had collected the trash the following morning.

Michael couldn't help but smirk even more widely upon hearing Kai's words of praise. Being worshipped had always been of his liking, after all. Especially when it was done in such a blunt manner. However, before the blonde man could respond, a male wearing a black suit and an equally dark necktie appeared and interrupted their conversation. The blonde man frowned faintly and was even about to say something. Before he heard the man's next words. "Oh..Oh sure...I accept sir! I'm glad you liked my performance to this extent...I'm really honored." He finally said, bowing politely his head as he kept talking with the agent in question. Even agreeing to sign up some documents and a contract between the two of them as they exchanged numbers, Michael being promised he'd receive a call from this man soon to let him know of his next appointments, interviews and performances.

Once the man in the dark suit had left, Michael turned to Kai. Of course unaware of all the hardships and ordeals the other man had gone through. He had no idea either of how aggressive some of his fans were. But at that moment, he couldn't care less. "Did you see that, Kai? It seems my dreams will finally come true! Oh but of course...You don't mind them believing the songs are mine...do you?" He finally inquired, picking up his jacket, wallet and smartphone, while walking towards the outside of the backstage. Bit by bit, all the people had started leaving and disappearing. Only a few members of Michael's club of fans remaining there in the hopes of getting autographs from Michael as well as the chance of getting a selfie with him being done right on the spot.

Finally, his fans had all left after Michael tended to their wishes. So the blonde man, visibly tired jet brimming with joy, went back to get Kai. Offering him his hand even as he smiled brightly at him. "A promise is a promise. Do you want to go have dinner with me? It's on me tonight, Kai. You helped me quite a lot, after all! It's all thanks to your song!"

Kai just smiled happy that Michael is getting the exposure he had always wanted and he didn't mind that he is just going to ride his coattails even though he should be the one in the spotlight. It had been an incredible night indeed, though he is feeling a little left out as people kept shoving him aside as they fight for Michael's attention. He didn't mind at all since after all these people vying for his attention he was sure that Michael would only have eyes for him.

"Just take your time I will wait," he said, as another fan asked for a selfie.

"Just as long as you don't broadcast my name, I would be fine telling everyone it is your song, just don't go promising them anything about a new song or any other composition than that one, it is not that hard to write a new song, but it does take time," he explained to Michael.

He was pushed again and this time he fell when one of the fans shoved him away, he lost his balance and fell. This is the only thing he didn't like about this setup. He pushed himself up and smiled at Michael though he is starting to hate his friend's fans some more.

"I would love to. I'm starved." he teased.

Of course, once more, the blonde man didn't notice what had happened with Kai. All he noticed was him standing up again, making him wonder if he had just fell down or something. "Hey, are you okay pal? Did you lose balance or something?" Michael then inquired, picking his jacket and wallet and exiting the place. Already walking towards a nearby restaurant specialized in Italian food, which he hoped Kai would enjoy. "You like Italian food, don't you?" He finally inquired, in case the other man was actually following him.

"Oh, it's ok. Of course you can take all the time you want, but I can't wait but hear your next song. I bet it's going to be a masterpiece, Kai! I'll be counting on you!" The blonde man then exclaimed, smiling kindly at his friend while he finally arrived at the place and ordered a table for the two of them. They were then guided to a small table located at one corner of the place, in a reserved area which would allow them some privacy. After that, they were handed the menus and the waiter bowed politely at them and simply left while they made their decisions regarding food.

"What do you want to have for dinner today, Kai?"

Kai had a privileged life, this is nothing compared to the life he once had. Dinner parties, soirees, cocktails, and dances, and endless dances. He actually finds it boring because for him this life is a lie, this is not the life he wanted.

His favorite times are when he was singing, and when he is writing his own songs and being able to belt it out. His teacher is not bad looking, but he is a very nice man. his name was Frederick, and for Kai back then he was the most amazing person in the world. They had fun, he would take him to the parks in disguise so they can listen to concerts and taught him how to read and write music sheets until he was finally doing it on his own, writing them and singing them. It was the most important thing in his life back then until his family had to take it away because they said he was born a prince and princes don't go to concerts or write songs, they don't even have time to sing. There are conferences and matters of the state that he needed to take care of and decide with his council.

"Yes this is awesome," he said, smiling. "I think I would like to have carbonara," he said, looking at the menu.

"I actually have a song, just needed a little tweaking, here you can have a listen," he said and handed him his phone where most of the time where he records most of his stuff after he writes them.


Say Something

"... Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one if you want me to
Anywhere, I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl
Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere, I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye… "

A waiter quickly came in after showing them to their table and took their order. First the drinks and then a carbonara for Kai, as well as some spaguetti with cheese sauce for Michael. Once they were left alone, the blonde man stared at Kai with a curious, yet visibly interested expression as he took the offered phone. "You already have another one? Gosh, you truly love to work!" He joked and started listening to the lyrics in question, attaching some headphones he was always keeping with himself hidden in one of his pockets.

Almost four minutes later, the removed the headphones from his ears and handed the small device back to Kai. "It's good. Really good, Kai. Isn't it a little bit sad though?" He then inquired, tilting his head. "Well, it's okay I guess. The girls will love it!" He finally concluded in an enthusiastic fashion, as the same young man who had taken their orders stopped by to deliver their food and drinks, letting everything on top of the table. "I hope you gentlemen enjoy your meal." He simply said and made himself scarce, as Michael stared down at the food with hungry eyes.

"Tell me, Kai...Is that song about you?"

Kai smiled a sad smile, he tried not to tear up. "Isn't how we write great songs because it comes from the heart?" he asked as he looked down at his carbonara.

"This is good, really good. Not a lot of people can make carbonara as good as this," he commented. He evaded replying for a bit as he keeps poking at his food.

"I had a different life before I moved over here. I had a good life before my family finally got wind that I have grown up and I wouldn't continue the family legacy I am the sole heir, so they moved me over here, so I can change and repent for all the selfishness I had done in my life against my family." he started looking up and grinning at Michael.

"Those are the words from my parents, it is just simply following my own dreams or my own life but they insisted since I am the heir, I should take on my studies seriously and singing, writing songs and making friends with other people that are below my pay grade, " he said, with a chuckle, he looked up at Michael again.

"My family belongs to old money so anyone who is actually doesn't belong to those old-money family are not part of our social circle and I shouldn't be hanging out with them," he said, "So they move here, I got some people watching me if I enroll to music class if I hang out in music rooms, things like that, so I would like to ask if you keep this between us, I can write for you, write songs as much as you want, but keep my name out of it." he said.

Michael stared at Kai while sipping his own drink in silence. Truth be told, if what the man said was true, it made him fit as a main character of an action novel or drama of sorts. "Oh...Is that really true, Kai? Where do you come from, then?" Michael finally inquired. An amusing smile raising to his lips as he finally managed to find himself interested in the other male. "And here I thought you were boring...That's amazing! You left your place and were forced to come here because you wanted to follow your dreams..."

After that he made a brief pause. Drinking more as he tilted his head. "Of course it's sad though, I didn't mean to say it was a good thing. But wow...You had it really rough. Although I like it. The fact you keep chasing after your dreams, no matter how hard things get...I really admire you now." Then he stared at his own order and let out a deep sigh. Calling for the waiter as he ordered a coffee for himself, ignoring the food and asking for it to be removed. "Sorry, I'm actually trying a new diet...Which only lets me have one meal a day. Totally forgot and I almost screw it up."

Then he folded both arms over the table and stared at him. "No worries. I'll show your lyrics to the whole world...Without naming you at all. Does that sound good? We both win, don't we? Just keep writing for me and your songs will reach every single sould on this planet! Soon enough, at least!" Finally his coffee was brought and he started drinking it calmly, visibly joyful. "What do your parents do for a living though? Are they nobles or something? Wealthy? Maybe even monarchs?"

Kai finally gave up playing with his food and also signaled for the waiter, "Please put this in a to-go box." he said, with a smile, "And also bring me some coffee as well." he said, smiling at Michael, "Sorry I really have no appetite as of late. But I might have a craving for it later when I get home, pretty sure there is nothing there but cup noddles and stale bread." he said, with a chuckle talking about his dorm room. It was a whole new level of existence for him, having no ladies in waiting or butlers and footmen to help him dress or wake him up and prepare his meals. He had to make them on his own and get dressed on his own, he has a very tight budget, for sure his parents especially his father is punishing him. But not the same with his mom who would send him money secretly and he kept them safely for an emergency just in case he might need them in the future.

"My father is a duke, and he had earned that title when he was born and now that I have come of age, I would surely need to follow his footsteps, considering how he is, there wouldn't be music in my life, he would make sure of that." he said, and then leaned closer towards Michael.

"Please don't let that go around, if my father's men get a wind of my identity being exposed, he would ship me this time to a military school, if a local college seems worse right now, I am pretty sure it would even be worse over there, and my father would make sure he would break every bone in my back bone to set me straight." he said, with a sigh.

Michael softly shook his head as he saw how the waiter removed the dishes and left. Only to be back quickly afterwards with a pair of coffees for them. "It's okay, I'm the same actually. It makes it easier for me to go on a diet. Since I don't want to get fat now I have fans to please." He finally said, revealing a mild obsession towards his own weight as he took a sip of his own coffee. He liked it dark, without any sort of sugar nor milk. Nor anything else. That way he'd gain less weight. And well, it also suited his own tastes even better, so it was a win-win for him.

"Hmm...So a duke...You must be rich then. Oh well...If you left your country without permission though, you probably don't have that much money with you right now either. Don't worry about it though. I'll still pay you as my right hand. Even more now you are giving me your lyrics." Then he leaned in closer to Kai. So that his own breath brushed against his face. Although all he could smell like was coffee anyways. "And don't worry. Your secret is safe with me. I don't want my beloved song writer to leave my side. Not with such beautiful lyrics you are coming up with anyways."

After he said that, he took another sip of his coffee. "I will protect and take good care of you. You can trust me, Kai. Okay? So there's nothing for you to worry about. Anymore. I promise."

"I am not the duke, my father is though I am being groomed to take his place. Plus I didn't go here on my own, my father sent me here and enrolled me in a course that wouldn't have any music involved, he has men all over campus guarding me," he said, looking around.

"Who knows, maybe some of them followed us here," he said, getting a little paranoid.

Before he got finished talking, two girls came rushing to their table and crowded Michael blocking Kai from view again, "Hi, we know you are having dinner, we just thought we would like to ask for your autograph." she said, she produced one of those mini pictures she had taken with her phone and has a mini photo printer, she tried to impress Michael that she had gotten that and she had actually taken a picture of Michael from earlier.

"Can you sign two of these, we would really be so honored." she said, one of the girls kept backing that she stepped on Kai's foot and she just looked at him like he was a decoration and nothing more.

Kai has no choice but to stand up. He tried to stay out of her but she seemed to be doing it on purpose and kept backing up and backing up until Kai had no choice but to really get out of the way, and the nerve of the girl to take even Kai's chair. It seemed they have no plans of leaving right away.
