You're Not Alone

The rest of Poppin'Party is happy to see that Kasumi has recovered. What will happen when they return to rehearsal?!

Ichigaya Residence - Basement
 
Kasumi
Good morning~, everyone!
Tae
Your voice is back, Kasumi?
Rimi
Is everything okay now?
Kasumi
Ehehe, sorry to make you all worry!
Arisa
Actually, though.
Saaya
Alright, I guess it's back to practice again today.
Tae
I'll let the owner know that we'll be auditioning.
Kasumi
O-okay...
Arisa
We don't have a lot of time. We have to focus.
Saaya
Alright then, let's get to it.
Kasumi
...
Saaya
Wait, maybe we should put this off until next time... Besides, you don't look so good...
Kasumi
No, I'm fine! Let's start already!
Saaya
From the top then.
Saaya
One, two, three, four.
Kasumi
No... mat... ter...
Saaya, Rimi, Arisa & Tae
...!
Kasumi
No... mat-...
Kasumi
... Sorry. Looks like I wasn't ready to come back.
Saaya
Kasumi...
Kasumi
Ehehe, you guys can go ahead and practice.
Arisa
What...? Where are you going?
Tae
Kasumi, wait.
Rimi
Kasumi-chan...!


Park
 
Kasumi
Huff, huff, huff...
Tae & Rimi
Kasumi! Kasumi-chan!
Arisa
Huff, huff, Kasumi...
Kasumi
Why'd you all follow me...?!
Arisa
Because you decided to run off! In what world would you call that being fine?!
Kasumi
I had no problem at home. My voice was okay...
Kasumi
Everyone here is better than me, and I can't even sing. I need to practice as much as I can, and yet...
Rimi
Kasumi-chan...
Kasumi
This is our last chance. We won't get another after this.
Kasumi
If we don't pass this one... We won't be able to get on that stage. And still...
Arisa
Don't cry...
Arisa
Just so you know, we were already aware from the beginning that the rest of us are better musicians than you.
Arisa
And we didn't let that bother us. We just kept pushing forward. Why do you care about that now?
Saaya
Did someone say something to you?
Kasumi
The owner told me that I don't understand the people around me or myself...
Arisa
... She's not wrong.
Arisa
Once you decide to do something, you just do it without listening to a thing we say. When we get dragged into something, we get hurt too.
Kasumi
Ohhh...
Arisa
But it's not all bad. I won't deny that it's annoying sometimes, but I felt like I should work harder because you were pushing me.
Kasumi
Arisa...
Tae
At first, I was really surprised when you said you would audition at SPACE. You only just managed to play a beginner's version of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...
Tae
But you told me, "I'm not sure, but I can work really hard!"
Arisa
You're not sure...?
Tae
... I was blinded by your brilliance. I love how you were firm with your words.
Tae
I still thought it was too early for us to get up on that stage, but I was okay with giving it our best shot.
Rimi
That time when you ran on stage with nothing in your hands was the moment you truly shone for me!
Rimi
It was amazing... That's how I found the courage to jump in too. I wanted to be "sparkling and heart-pounding," just like you.
Kasumi
Like... me?
Saaya
I think you really shine when you're chasing after something. I don't know if that's necessarily the 'sparkling' you're looking for, but...
Saaya
Seeing you do that made me feel jealous. All I could do for so long was stand still.
Saaya
But then you came and pulled me along with you... You asked me to join you, Arisa, Rimi-rin and O-Tae... You asked me to be a part of the band!
Kasumi
Nnn, that's just because I wanted us to play together...!
Arisa
And that's good enough, isn't it? You're overthinking things. Forget about not being good and not being able to pass the audition. Forget that stuff.
Saaya
It was you who told me those sweet words, wasn't it? That I don't have to worry about things on my own. "Let us figure this out together."
Kasumi
Saaya...
Rimi
When the owner said you don't understand yourself, I think she was talking about your skill level.
Tae
If you don't know where you fall short, it's impossible to know how to improve.
Saaya
But now you know what you're missing, right?
Kasumi
Mhm... Lots of things...
Arisa
Ah... I have a suggestion.
Saaya
Oh, I do too, actually.
Arisa
Okay, you go first.
Saaya
Huh...? That's alright, you can go...
Tae
We should all do part of the singing.
Arisa
Agh! Hey! I was gonna say that!
Saaya
Ahaha, so was I.
Rimi
You mean not just on parts like the chorus?
Saaya
Right, let's all do some singing.
Tae
I have a memo of the lyrics. We can decide which parts we'll sing. I'll... do this part.
Arisa
What is this, first come, first serve?! Wait, are you planning on singing now?!
Saaya
Alright, I'll take the part after you, O-Tae.
Rimi
H-hold on~.
Tae
Okay, you start, Rimi.
Rimi
It is an overwhelming love that I feel. I want to open that door right now, right here. But for some reason I can't seem to move forward...
Tae
Yet from the power of three chords, you and I would finally be one. Now we all share one dream. How I wish to feel that trembling in my soul.
Saaya
I wished upon the stars and then I rejoiced merrily. The night sky above continued to pass me by.
Arisa
It seemed that I could be more open than I chose to be, and that's when you smiled at me.
Kasumi
And so, no matter how much pain you're feeling right now, no matter if everything's going wrong right now, remember all the things that you've worked so hard for and you just Keep On Moving!
Kasumi
Use your heart and soul, and just go! Give it all you've got for one goal! It doesn't matter how far you have to follow!
All
Sparkles that continue to sway, for as far as the eye can see.
All
That is the place that we, we dream to be, we dream to be.
Arisa & Saaya
...
Rimi & Tae
...
Kasumi
... I think I finally get what the owner meant when she said I don't understand the people around me...
Kasumi
I wanted to try hard, but I was doing it on my own. While I was so focused on that, I wasn't paying any attention to you guys.
Arisa
Took you long enough to notice.
Saaya
If there's something you can't do, someone else can give you a hand.
Tae
Everyone has their own role in a performance, but Poppin'Party is made of five people.
Rimi
And that's what a band is all about, Kasumi-chan.
Kasumi
You guys... Ngh, thank you.
Arisa
I told you to stop crying!
Kasumi
But I'm just so happy~... Alright, let's go to that audition and show everyone what we're made of!
