Ah, Reina Kousaka... The mysterious trumpeter who never fails to captivate me with her impeccable skills and unwavering passion for music. There's something about the way she plays that leaves me in awe every time we perform together. Her dedication and determination are truly admirable, and I can't help but feel a sense of admiration towards her.

Despite Kumiko's close friendship with Reina, I find myself keeping a bit of distance from her. Maybe it's because she's not part of the bass section like Kumiko, Hazuki, Midori, and myself. Or maybe it's just my own insecurities getting in the way. But regardless of the reason, I can't deny that there is a part of me that longs to connect with Reina on a deeper level.

I often catch glimpses of her practicing alone or lost in thought during rehearsals. There is an air of mystery surrounding her that intrigues me endlessly. What thoughts run through her mind as she plays? What dreams does she hold dear? These questions linger in my mind whenever our paths cross.

I know that deep down inside, we both share a love for music that transcends words or actions. It binds us together even if we don't interact as much as I would like to. And perhaps one day, our shared passion will bridge the gap between us and bring us closer than ever before.

As I continue to strive for excellence in my own playing, I look up to Reina as a role model - someone whose talent inspires me to push beyond my limits and reach new heights in my musical journey. And though our paths may diverge at times, I believe that our mutual respect for each other will always keep us connected through the universal language of music.

So here's to you, Reina Kousaka - the enigmatic trumpeter whose melodies touch hearts and inspire souls May your music soar high and your spirit shine bright Forever leaving behind traces of magic within each note played
