Liobern woke up. At first, he coudln't remember why he was here, and what was he trying to do, and even who he was. But as the sight cleared, his mind cleared too. He was tied up in a dark long corridors, which had no exits, and he was tied up at the one end of it. A gigantic swirling mass of pure darkness gathered up at the other end of the corridor in 5 seconds. Then.... it started approaching him.
Libern knew that he would be dead, and there was no hope. The mass of darkness was 10 meters far from him. First, it slowly approached, then, it got a little faster. Then some little more.
When Liobern finished settling his mind, and ready for the end of him, the darkness gained a gigantic amount of speed, and it rushed right toward him.
Liobern had no time to say anything except one word. The only word he said was, "Lutenger." before the mighty darkness hit him, which ripped him to pieces.
Lutenger's best friend, Jeehan, cheerfully greeted the boy with long blond hair-Lutenger. Dispite thier (very) close relationship, they didn't had much chance to meet during school. That was because they went to different classes. Lutenger was class 4, and Jeehan, class 6. They only had chance to meet only at after-school. Several good friends of Lutenger had already gathered up with Jeehan.
"So your older brother is still up there, Lutenger?"
One of his friends, J (he never told his real name.) , asked Lutenger grinning, pointing up the sky.
Lutenger answered cheerfully.
"But not now. As you know, my brother Liobern was hired as a spirit. He is ordinary high schooler during daytime, but when night come, he levitate himself to the sky (and one time I spotted it with my own eye) , and starts working there. He could be seen as a star at here-he says. I never saw him in the sky with naked-eyes. Thanks to my astronomer father, I can easily go to the observatory, and aim the high technic telescope at the spot where he always tell me as his working spot. Then, I can see my brother as a faint (much fainter than the other spirits who show up at the night sky as well) red dot in the sky.
But this is daytime. So, Liobern must be resting in our house."
"Is it really true that your older brother is ACTUALLY the faintest STAR in the sky?"
"Yeah, I think so. He told me that."
With some talk, they arrived at the door of Lutenger's house. His home was the 17th floor on the tall apartment building near to his (no, their) school. After saying good-bye to his friends, he went up to his home with an elevator, and pushed the familiar door open, with a lot of things to tell his older brother.
"Hey, Liobern. Today I...."
Suddenly, Lutenger froze. Usually, Liobern would be greeting welcomely as his younger brother returns home. But that particular day, He was nowhere in sight, and some of his guards, the Pleanets, were searching the whole house franticly.
Lutenger immediately found out that something was wrong.
