Good morning. I apologize that I suddenly wasn't able to join the handshake event yesterday (´・ω・`) I have recovered so I will be able to participate in the events today!! I'm sorry for causing everyone trouble and making you worry.

The stripes of her blouse and the pink cardigan totally match the picture from before.

It's already Kito's 2nd yellow card. The kiss is bad enough, but what's wrong here is the underage drinking

I don't know who Kito is so I don't really know how to react
