My point is - what is your point? Your observation says nothing new.
• ... Well, the first counterexample is k=23, (701,703) (707,709) (719,721) The next few counterexamples are 31, 37, 41, 61, 73, 83, 97.

Well, the first counterexample is k=23,
(701,703)
(707,709)
(719,721)

The next few counterexamples are 31, 37, 41, 61, 73, 83, 97.
