101. Everyone has their own first experience
” ” “Beach volleyball tournament?” ” “
In Hiiragi’s words, such words were given in harmony.
“Yeah. Didn’t I mention that in advance? That there would be an event. Apparently, there’s a beach volleyball tournament where the team must be a pair of a man and a woman. The number of people is just right, so why don’t we join?”
“Beach volleyball huh… but Chairman. We haven’t entered the sea yet.”
“You have a point, but the deadline for reception is just around the corner. If you want to join, you have to apply now.”
Beach volleyball… it was a kind of sport that could be said to be the standard of a summer sea.
Atsushi and others had just entered the game. Therefore, they were in a state where it hasn’t even soaked their feet into the sea, but since they had come all the way, it would be a waste to miss the event.
At least that was Atsushi’s thoughts, and not for others, especially girls.
“Wellー, I’m from an indoor sect, that core of mine won’t change even in the game, more so, it’s a physical activity…”
Yuri wasn’t very enthusiastic.
That should be the case. Her root was that of an indoor person, as she said. Even if this was inside the game world, physical activities were something she wasn’t good at, even if it was just a not-so-tiring sport she wouldn’t do it, moreover, a competition.
“By the way, it seems that the winner will get the latest version of the goggle-type VR machine that is generally available on the market.”
“Atsushi-san. What are you doing? Let’s prepare for the beach volleyball. As fast as possible.”
“You’re so fast to switch, aren’t you…”
Apparently, the desire to get a game console outweighed the hassle of doing physical activities.
“So, Shirasawa will be in a team with Yamagami. Then, I’ll be with Kirishima.”
“… Chairman. I don’t remember saying that I would ever come out though?”
While saying so, Kirishima stared at Hiiragi.
The expression was obviously annoyed, or even, absolutely disgusted by the idea.
“Huh? Isn’t it okay?”
“It’s not okay. Even coming here, was half-forced… more than this, I’ve no more reason listening to you…”
“Oh, by the way, if you win, you’ll get another prize in addition to the game console. If I’m not mistaken, it’s 100,000 yen?”
“Chairman. what are you doing? Let’s do a stretch and practice. As fast as possible.”
“Oi, you’re too greedy, aren’t you…!?”
The amount of 100,000 yen was surely large, but even so, the speed of change was unusual. Atsushi couldn’t help but wonder if Kirishima might be in trouble with money, but Atsushi purposedly didn’t mention it.
“Of course, Yamagami will participate, right?”
“That goes without saying. Well, I’ve never played beach volleyball, but it looks interesting, so of course, I’ll participate. I mean, see that disappointing fairy there, she’s so ready to participate.”
“And as her guardian, you can’t leave her alone huh?”
“Who is her guardian. She doesn’t need it. But, if we’re talking about the guardian, you too.”
“You mean as Kirishima’s? Well, in my case, rather than a guardian, perhaps it’s better to call it a supervisor… normally, I should leave her alone, but she’s still, even now, put a strange medicine in my drinks and meals. I can’t leave such a person alone, right?”
Hearing that, Atsushi remembered what Kirishima had said before. But he didn’t think she was still going at it.
Chairman, why can you be calm while knowing that… I mean, how can you stay with someone who’s regularly trying to drug you…
Yuri, who was also wondering, threw words at
“Kirishima-san… are you still doing that? You’re a person who is hard to get disciplined huh.”
“Hmm… you don’t need to worry. Rather, Shirasawa-san. Are you really going to participate?”
“? Yes? Do you have a problem?”
“No, I just don’t want to hear your “singing” in retaliation because you lost later.”
“Hoho… Rest assured. Even if I don’t do that, it’s not me who will be crying later.”
“Is that so? Then, I’ll look forward to it.”
Two girls talked about such things while staring at each other. Apparently, it had been decided in their mind that the champion would be among the two.
“Then, everyone will participate. Alright, I’ll go to the reception desk immediately.”
Following Hiiragi’s words, they entered the tournament.
On one side,
“Oh, that’s right. Atsushi-san. I don’t know the rules of beach volleyball at all, so can you tell me?”
“How can you speak with a big mouth not long ago.”
It was Atsushi who couldn’t help but comment on Yuri.
Additionally, on the other side,
“Chairman. I have no experience in beach volleyball, so I’ll leave everything to you. Thank you.”
“Hm? Isn’t supposedly a scene where we try to do our best together?”
Hiiragi said so to Kirishima in a slightly amazed tone.
