Kaoru,

I could never blame you for always skipping practice. Sometimes, I wanted to skip too. I was always so tired, but I suppose that was always painfully obvious... Despite my shortcomings, you still believed in me. Thank you so much.

Unfortunately, while I express my gratitude, I must also express my apologies. I can't debut with you as a duo after graduation anymore. It's your turn to lead now. I know you and Adonis and Koga can reach great heights without the burden of a leader like me. I believe in you.
