The whole story in this novel has absolutely nothing to do with the music/song. The whole story is fiction. If there are similarities in the naming, we did not intend to.

And the author herself has not been able to write in good English. If there are any criticisms/suggestions about writing/grammars/punctuation, please contact the author. The author welcomes suggestions and constructive criticism.

There are still some terms in foreign languages

that may not be understood, such as en pointé (which is tiptoe to toe while performing ballet movements), or pas de deux (is a dance duet in which two dancers, usually a boy and a girl, performing ballet moves together), or also pointé shoes (are the type of shoes worn by ballet dancers when performing the en pointé dance).

For other ballet dance terms such as fifth position or first position, the author invites readers to search for the term in the search engine.

The author also invites readers to fantasize widely, including all the ballet dance movements in this story, please fantasize and imagine as freely as possible how the movements are performed.

Readers are also advised to watch ballet dance videos before reading this novel, The Red Swan, to make the fantasy more beautiful.

Stories in ballet such as The Swan Lake (The Swan Queen), Giselle, Cinderella, or stories in other famous ballet dances, readers can search for them in search engines, because these stories will not be discussed too much in this novel.

Thank you, happy fantasizing!
