The start of arc 3
99. Most of the time a beach episode happens suddenly
It might be sudden but time for enjoying summer.
Atsushi was looking at the sea in front of him.
“Oooh, this is amazing…”
Atsushi muttered such a thing. From the perspective of a third party, it might seem as if he was hallucinating, but his words were natural.
After all, “here” wasn’t just your normal beach.
Suddenly Atsushi was called and he turned back.
Yuri, who also wore a swimsuit, was heading for him.
“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting.”
Atsushi replied as if he had lost of words.
The swimsuit Yuri was wearing, was the so-called one-piece swimsuit. It was in a light red color. Frill on the waist. On top of it, was a white hoodie.
Originally, one-piece swimsuits had more places less exposed than bikinis. In addition, a hoodie was over it. Therefore, the skin should be less exposed.
“What is it, Atsushi-san? Aaah, did you get excited when you saw me in a swimsuit?”
“Oi, you, stop it. I think girls shouldn’t say that.”
It was a fact that Atsushi was really exci… fascinated by it, even so, he couldn’t help but make a joke, as if he wanted to be done with the topic.
Especially around the chest.
Well, I’ve always thought that there must be more than what it seems… but, now that I see it better, it’s more than I expected.
It was so unexpected that Yuri was a “dressing skinny type”.
Atsushi changed the topic to shake off the thought that slowly went in the wrong direction.
“Anyway, you seem to have more tension than usual.”
“That’s, of course. Weーll, to be honest, I don’t really like the summer sea because there are so many people. Especially, those people with strange tensions. I don’t want to get involved with that kind of person…But! “Here” is an exception. “Here”, I can play to the fullest!”
“Oh, oooh. I see …”
Yuri declared with strange tension.
The “expression” was too lively.
Seriously… where did the usual expressionless go?
It was true that “here” could be called a special place, but Atsushi never thought she would change so much.
“But, still, you’re standing out.”
Atsushi looked around while saying that. There were other guests glancing at them.
“Aーh, that’s true… well, I can’t activate my secret skills in “here”. That’s the only problem… Oh, but that… If Atsushi-san stays next to me, no strange guy will come near. That’s why, please, always stay by my side.”
“That’s my line. You shouldn’t go somewhere while I take my eyes off you. If you get lost again like that time in an amusement park, I doubt I can find you “here”.”
“Ugh… I want to say something back, but I can’t argue because it’s a fact… D-don’t worry. At that time, there was an event for “Evil-Masked Blade”. Other than that, I don’t think I will get tempted and act alo―――”
“Finally, I found you. How long will you be there?”
Suddenly, someone talked to Atsushi and Yuri.
When both turned around, it was Sumi Kirishima, in a black bikini standing with her hand on her waist.
“… Shirasawa-san. I know you don’t have very good feelings for me, but you don’t have to give me that face, right? Well, it’s unexpected that even you can make such a face.“
“It can’t be helped, you know? I can’t suppress my emotions as usual when I’m “here”. Since that’s the case, I try to shift my mind to do as I please.”
“… Should I count that as you’re being positive?”
Sumi had a troubled expression at Shirasawa’s easygoingness. She turned her gaze toward Atsushi and looked at him with a huffy expression.
“What are you looking at?…. Are you going to keep ogling at me?”
“Oi! Not you too, why are you all speaking like this from the beginning.”
“I mean, you’ve been looking at me from a while ago. I think it’s natural to think that you’re thinking about something nasty?”
“Whether it’s nasty or not, it’s natural to be interested…”
Sumi’s black bikini wasn’t one that special, but a simple plain one. But when Sumi wore it, it wasn’t just a simple bikini anymore.
As with the previous bunny girl costume, she really had a very erotic style. Not that her fashion style was erotic, just that she was sexy.
Therefore, it was clear that any other man, not just Atsushi, would look at her.
“Oh… well, whatever. More than that, Chairman is waiting over there, so let’s go now. If we made him wait too long, we would be in the scolding course.”
“Ugh, that’s not good. Chairman, once he entered the scolding course, it wouldn’t stop that fast.”
“Well, isn’t it better than someone’s machine gun-like talk?”
“Ohohoho. Kirishima-san. Who the hell are you talking about? Aaaah, maybe you want to hear my singing again?”
“… That threat doesn’t work “here”.”
“Yes, that’s right, but after we return, it’ll be different, no?”
“Ah, hmm. Hmmmm. D-do as you like, I-I don’t care. Anyway, let’s go faster. Otherwise, the chairman may get angry for real.”
While Sumi walked while saying so, the two walked behind as if following.
Meanwhile, Atsushi suddenly said a word while looking at the sun shining in the sky and the sea illuminated by it.
“Really… it’s too amazing to be real, I mean this “game”. “
Yes, as Atsushi said, they were in a game.
