Dear Kayo-chin,

I love you!

I love you! I love you! I love you!

I don’t think I could ever say it enough times, but I want to write about some other stuff too. And I’ve never written one of these things before but I saw Nozomi-chan give one to Eli-chan a while back and so I asked about it. It seemed kind of strange to write stuff on paper instead of just telling people that you love them, but it also sounds kind of fun. So I hope this turns out good.

Today was amazing! Wearing such a cute dress was a lot more fun than I could have imagined. And being the center was wonderful and I understand why Honoka-chan has so much fun with it. But none of it would have been possible without the support of you and everyone else or if you and Maki-chan hadn’t given me that last push. Thank you for that.

Rin smiled at the memories still fresh in her mind.

I’ll be sure to thank Maki-chan and the others later, but this letter is to you.

And really, I should thank you for pulling me into µ’s and becoming a school idol. I’ve always loved how much you love idols, but I never dreamed that being one would be so much fun. I love dancing and learning new moves. I also love hanging out with everyone. And while I would have been happy supporting you as a fan, I am even more happy to support you as a fellow idol.

You are my best friend, Kayo-chin and I am very happy to have known you pretty much all of my life. I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life by your side. And ramen. I guess I still want to have more ramen. And maybe some rice too. I know how much you love rice. And I love watching how you always get excite over it. But if I really had to choose between you and ramen, I would choose you. And I’d like to think you would choose me over rice. I’m pretty sure you would.

I also love your voice. When you sing, it is so pure that I know why you were assigned that attribute for our bio things. It fits you so well. I’d love to hear you sing a solo someday. I know you will probably shy away from it, but if I can shine as the center like I did today, then you can shine as well. I know you can do it. And I’ll support you all the way, just as you’ve always supported me. Who knows, maybe I’ll even sing my own solo as well. I think that would be a lot of fun.

I love you, Kayo-chin.

I know I’ve already said it a bunch of times, but it’s true and I love saying it.

I can’t wait to see how happy you are when I give this to you.


Rin reviewed the letter she had just completed. Was there anything else? What hadn’t she covered? For that matter, what had she written that Hanayo didn’t already know? These love letter things really were kind of a silly idea. Still, it had been fun to write, and she hoped Hanayo would like receiving it.

Her phone buzzed.

RiceQueen: Rin-chan

NyaCat: kayo-chin!

RiceQueen: Would you like to go out tomorrow?

NyaCat: with you? nyabsolutely!

NyaCat: rin is always always always happy to go out with kayo-chin!

NyaCat: where do you want to go?

NyaCat: do you want to try that new ramen shop that just opened?

RiceQueen: That was what I was thinking

Rin couldn’t help throwing an arm into the air to cheer for the idea.

RiceQueen: I want to treat you to something

RiceQueen: As thanks for putting up with us today

NyaCat: putting up with you?

NyaCat: rin never has to put up with kayo-chin

NyaCat: and today was fun

NyaCat: rin cant wait to be the center of another song!

NyaCat: and I cant wait to see kayo-chin be the center of a song too!

NyaCat: so no apologizing!

RiceQueen: Sorry

RiceQueen: I mean

Rin laughed at the rather expected response.

NyaCat: and I think Im gonna to wear a dress tomorrow

RiceQueen: You are?!

RiceQueen: That would be wonderful!

RiceQueen: Which one?

NyaCat: the one my mom bought me last year

RiceQueen: I never did get to see you in that one

RiceQueen: But it looked cute

RiceQueen: I’m sure it will look lovely on you

RiceQueen: I’m looking forward to it

NyaCat: so am I

NyaCat: it will be fun

NyaCat: so what are you up to now?

From there the conversation quickly turned to idols. Hanayo had been watching an uploaded video of their concert from earlier that day but clicked on a few suggested links and ended up with over a dozen tabs open with a backlog of idol videos she wanted to watch. Rin happily agreed to watch a few as well so she could provide her own commentary. The letter was slid aside to make room for her laptop and before long it was all but forgotten.
