Grandpa, did you hear me playing the music?
If you did, then how do you feel right now? And what do you think of it? I put everything into this piece of music.
"Foolish girl! Are you really satisfied with that?!"
I can just imagine you slapping your long ruler on the desk loudly, pretending to give me a stern lecture.
Even if I can no longer talk to Grandpa and bid him farewell, I don't regret how it ended.
You spent a whole decade teaching me musical theory and technique, turning me into the last musician in the dark. You said that I had to find the answer on my own.
And now I've found the answer, the truth that's been holding every one of us back, like heavy shackles.
But rest assured, those shackles will stifle us no longer, I've made sure of that. From now on, my songs will be the light of Itsukushima, lighting the way for mankind.
To end the eternal night on Itsukushima, I've absorbed the pwoer of countless dead souls in the altar and became the Maestra of Tunes, the creator of rules.
I saw you under the bright ray of light – Brother Vita, Brother Lux, and Sister Pax, who all died on the battlefield.
I miss you so much on this lonely island in the dark. Whenever I fight the monsters using the skills you taught me, it feels like you're still protecting me, like you never left.
It's all so unfair. Why couldn't you have stayed a little longer? Why did you disappear like you didn't even care? I'm still not as good as you...
There are still many things that I don't understand.
If you went to the Underworld and drank Mouba's tea, you would forget everything that happened on Itsukushima. And I would disappear from my family's memory.
But now I've inherited the unfulfilled wishes of my brothers and sisters.
Even if it means that I remain here in eternal loneliness, I will keep playing.
I kept repeating to myself the great principles of life, trying to encourage myself not to give up.
Who could understand how helpless and sad a performer can be when they've lost everything that they could rely on.
Sister Regula... I'm sure you understand me, since you betrayed Itsukushima for me and were detested by all in return.
I don't know how long I can play for Itsukushima, or how long I will shine after becoming the light.
A decade? A century? Or a millenium?
Whenever I thought about the world I was protecting, and how totally different it would be in the distant future, I felt a little excited. But most of the time, I just felt lonely.
Sister Regula, I have never regretted the choice I made. But still, I am troubled. I don't know when I can ever stop playing.
I put down my lute and heard a soothing tune coming from a home on Itsukushima, the lullaby you often sang to me softly to put me to sleep.
Perhaps that tune can go some way towards filling this empty heart of mine tonight.
After using one of Kinnara's skill 2 tone effects, a small symbol will be added to the tone's icon to indicate that it has been played.
The CN/JP names for Kinnara's skill 2 effects are in reference to Gosei (五声) and/or the Ritsu Scale (津音階/律旋法).
The 5 sounds 宮(gōng/きゅう), 商(shāng/しょう), 角(jué/かく), 徴(zhǐ/ち) and 羽(yǔ/う) correspond to the syllables Do, Re, Mi, So, La in western music.
