Kumiko and I have always had a unique dynamic, one that is both challenging and rewarding. She may come off as laid-back and easy-going, but her passion for the euphonium runs deep, especially since being guided by Asuka-senpai. Our contrasting personalities often clash, with me being more aloof and straightforward while Kumiko tends to be more relaxed and contemplative.

Despite our differences, we make quite the harmonious duo when it comes to music. Our performances together are always filled with intensity and emotion, each note blending seamlessly into the next. There's a special connection between us when we play side by side, almost like our instruments are extensions of ourselves.

And then there's Shuuichi... Oh boy, where do I even begin? That boy can be so incredibly clueless at times. His relentless pursuit of Kumiko borders on absurdity in my opinion. It's almost comical how he keeps trying to win her over without realizing that she sees right through his intentions. But hey, everyone has their own way of expressing themselves; I just find his approach rather foolish.

As for me... Well, let's just say that my feelings towards Kumiko go beyond mere friendship. There's something deeper there – an unspoken understanding between us that transcends words or actions. Perhaps it’s because we share a common love for music or maybe it’s something more profound than either of us can comprehend.

In any case, our bond continues to grow stronger with each passing day as we navigate through the challenges of high school life and band competitions together. And no matter what obstacles come our way – whether it be personal conflicts or external pressures – I know that Kumiko will always have my back just as much as I have hers.

The journey ahead may not always be smooth sailing but knowing that she is by my side makes all the difference in the world.
