Kaori has been selected to perform as the Promoters’ Choice at the Towa Music Competition gala concert, and at her invitation, Kōsei sits before the piano once again. The piece Kaori has chosen is Kreisler’s Love’s Sorrow. However, when it was their turn to go up and perform, Kaori still hasn't arrived at the musical gala, leaving Kōsei to go up by himself.
