We left our belongings behind and headed to the nearby beach. This story was meant to be a relaxing and lighthearted one, set in an otherworldly inn that we had all to ourselves due to a Kraken infestation scaring away other guests.
As we arrived at the sandy shore, there wasn’t a soul in sight—well, not exactly human souls but rather fairies.
“It’s so empty here… Well, more like devoid of people… or fairies.”
“Krakens are quite a common problem… Though it seems there aren’t any around right now.”
“Anyway, I want to go for a swim…”
“But we didn’t bring swimsuits.”
With the beach all to ourselves, Mel was kind enough to create swimsuits for us using her magical abilities.
“Well then, how about using these?”
So, we all activated our magical outfits. Kohaku was wearing a white bikini that showcased her long cleavage line. It was quite provocative, to say the least.
Moegi wore a bikini as well, revealing her cleavage, and her legs were… surprisingly sexy. I wish she’d cover up a bit more.
Aoi, on the other hand, wore a modest swimsuit with more coverage, giving her a refreshing and wholesome look. It seemed like she’d enjoy her time here without any complications.
“Hey?????!!! Why am I the only one in a school swimsuit?!!”
“Why? Isn’t that a typical swimsuit for humans?”
“Yeah, but why am I the only one like this? It’s definitely on purpose, right?”
“Sorry about that!”
“Ugh, well, whatever. I’m not here to be the ‘loli’ character, you know?”
For some reason, she seemed to fit the school swimsuit quite well. By the way, I happen to like Karen in a school swimsuit.
“I like it! The school swimsuit!”
“Yeah, well, if that’s the case, I wouldn’t mind this outfit either…”
“Eeh?! If that’s the case, I want to wear a school swimsuit too!”
“I’ll wear a school swimsuit too!”
“Really? Sorry, but that’s all I have.”
So, we ended up at the beach in our various swimsuits…
“Karen-senpai, aren’t you going to swim?”
“It feels great.”
“Oh, right… Karen-chan, you…”
Hihara Karen. She’s excellent at everything, with top-notch athleticism, easily acing tests by just flipping through textbooks, and capable of handling almost anything. Her growth rate is like a cheat. But there’s one thing she can’t do—swim.
“I can’t swim…”
“Is that so…”
“Then, shall we all just play in the sand together?”
“Don’t worry about it.”
She said that. It was her way of not dampening the beach outing due to her own limitations.
“I do worry about it. It’s awkward to be the only one watching from the sand.”
Kohaku said this and tried to get out of the water, giving the impression that it couldn’t be helped.
“Alright, then how about we play beach volleyball? Would that be okay?”
I was moved… tears started to well up… I couldn’t say anything in the face of their strong bond.
“It’s all your fault that Izayoi-kun is crying!”
“I-It’s not necessarily my fault!”
“I think it’s Karen’s fault.”
“Yeah, I agree.”
“Ugh, s-sorry… I made Izayoi cry…”
“Don’t worry about it!!”
Now, should I join in with them for a game of beach volleyball? It’s definitely more fun to do things together with everyone.
The girls divided themselves into teams to start playing beach volleyball, and Mel brought the volleyball for us.
Mel mentioned that she had some things to discuss with her family back at the inn. Come to think of it, Mel is the daughter of the inn’s owner. She went to an academy from there and earned the nickname of a genius, mastering many things. However, she couldn’t defeat the demons on her own, so she invited us here this time to help her. She’s probably conducting research on the Kraken and preparing dinner right now. We’ve caused her quite a bit of trouble, so we’ll have to thank her properly and provide her with various modern supplies once everything is over.
“Izayoi-kun, let’s play beach volleyball!”
Well, with five of us, it’s going to be two against two, so I volunteered to be the referee. By the way, in this world, there’s a sport similar to beach volleyball, so there’s a net and a referee stand.
Kohaku and Moegi versus Aoi and Karen.
“Fufufu, let me show you my power here.”
“Well, let’s not go overboard.”
“The main heroine won’t hold back in situations like this.”
“It’s better to win than to lose.”
The game started with Kohaku’s serve. Kohaku’s… chest… and Moegi’s…
“Wasn’t that out?”
“You were probably staring at their ch*sts, weren’t you? Hmph.”
Aoi came over for deliberation, but I had only been looking at Kohaku and Moegi… Karen seemed to notice this too and turned away, clearly irritated. It’s not good, not good. I need to referee properly.
Kohaku’s gesture of biting her hair tie and tying her hair up was cute… No, they’re all cute.
I conducted the match fairly from there on. The beach volleyball match between the magical girls was at a very high level.
Kohaku’s one-person time-delayed… movement… was a nice feint. Moegi’s lower posture and… movement… after the feint was… good receive.
Aoi’s unexpectedly excellent movements. Truly refreshing, and yet captivating. She tossed the ball with her fingertips and placed the ball perfectly for Karen. There was nothing suspicious about it.
However, I couldn’t help but notice the sound when she snapped the elastic of her bikini bottoms.
Karen, in her school swimsuit, looked cute just because of that. There’s a simple, pure cuteness about her. Also, when she loses her balance in the sand and her voice gets higher, it’s somehow cute.
So, I successfully served as the referee.
By the way, the Kraken did appear, but Aoi manipulated the water to drive it away. I think this was part of the original story as well. I’m pretty sure it’ll be served as sashimi for dinner. After having so much fun, we headed back to the inn with our cherished memories.
However, there’s a problem with this inn. Since there are no guests right now, only the women’s bath is operational. So, there’s a possibility of… mixed bathing… No, I just have to go in later.
We had played to our hearts’ content and were now feeling hungry, so we decided to return to the inn. We wanted to take a bath, but…
“Only the women’s bath is operational!?”
“Sorry about that. Since we don’t have any guests, we only have hot water in the women’s bath. Well, it’s not a big deal if we all use it together, is it?”
Kohaku was surprised and Mel explained that due to the Kraken Aoi had defeated, there were no guests, and the inn had essentially been closed. As a result, only one of the baths could be used.
“Well, then, I’ll go later…”
“No, let’s go together.”
“Izayoi-kun, you’re all sweaty, right?”
“In that case, we need to get clean right away.”
“Alright, Kuro, let’s go together.”
Not only Kohaku but also Aoi expressed their agreement.
“Well, I couldn’t use the sea by myself earlier, so Izayoi, it’s fine if you join.”
Karen seemed a bit embarrassed but approved. I felt awkward, but I didn’t want to leave him alone, so I agreed.
“No, I can’t…”
“I think it’s fine. You’re being too reserved. Come on, let’s go.”
I pushed him gently towards the women’s bath.
“Was Moegi always this assertive?”
“I was thinking the same…”
“Maybe something happened…”
This could be bad. I should refrain from saying things like this in the future to avoid being discovered. I need to keep our relationship a secret…
