You leave Irodori to drive to the airport. Along the way, you read the letter you left in your guitar cover. Ayako writes: ' ...Because of this overseas studies, I had been feeling very disturbed. On one hand is my childhood dream of studying Art in Paris and on the otherhand is the fear that upon leaving you I will feel lonely. Its been really great this past few days been with you. Which is why I've given you that painting. I hope you will forgive me for leaving so suddenly and not even telling you before. I wish you all the best in your band contest and success for your new song. P.S. This is something which should have been said during graduation; I Love You.' You finally reached the airport and begin to look for Ayako. But will you have made it in time? Has the airplane left? If not what is going to happen to you and Ayako?
