“Hey Takuma, how do you like me in my swimsuit?”

“I think you look great.”

“I know, I thought so too.”

It was still fresh in my mind that on the day we had gone shopping for yukata, I had been subjected to the torture-level humiliation of choosing Alice’s swimsuit in the women’s swimwear section.

The black ribbon bikini that Alice is wearing now looks really good on her. I mean, I had worked so hard to choose it that I had to put up with people staring at me for almost an hour, so it would be a problem if it didn’t look good on her.

“Then, let’s get in the water, shall we?”

“Oh, wait. I want you to put this on before we go in the water.”

Alice offered me a bottle of sunscreen. I don’t mind getting sunburned myself, but Alice, a girl, probably doesn’t like it.

“So where do I put it on?”

“All over my body, of course.”

Alice said with a wicked smile on her face. I had no choice but to do it. I took the sunscreen and started applying it to Alice’s back.

I was so excited to see her, but I couldn’t concentrate at all because of the sexy voice she made from time to time.

“…… Hey, are you making that sound on purpose?”

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m just ticklish.”

“Please bear with me a little bit.”

“I’ll do my best.”

In the end, Alice didn’t give up at all, so I had to apply the paint while desperately pushing down my rationality.

“Thank you, let’s go in the sea this time.”

Alice, who was high-spirited, grabbed my hand, which was tired even before we got into the ocean, and we started heading to the ocean. We continued walking along the beach until we reached the edge of the surf, and slowly walked into the ocean.

“It’s so nice and cool in the ocean.”

“I know, it’s great on a crazy hot day like today.”

The temperature of the sea water was moderately cool today, and it was a perfect day for swimming.



While I was thinking about this, Alice suddenly poured seawater on my face with all her might. I was completely caught off guard.

“You did it, and here’s your payback.”

“It’s cold.”

I hit back and poured seawater on Alice’s upper body in a big splash. We were just splashing each other, but both Alice and I were excited like little kids.

We were swimming in the sea and drawing pictures on the beach, and before we knew it, it was time for lunch.

“Since we’re here, let’s have lunch at the beach house,”

“Okay, what shall we eat?”

Alice and I went into the beach house and started looking at the menu. We had a hard time deciding, but we decided to go with yakisoba because we had an image of yakisoba at the beach house. After a while, the yakisoba was brought to us and we started eating it.

“I always think that food at a beach house tastes so much better than at a restaurant.”

“Yes, well, there’s actually a trick to it.”

“Oh, really?”

“Yes, after playing in the ocean, you are slightly dehydrated, and your body needs salt.”

I see. That’s why eating a dish like yakisoba with a lot of flavor tastes better than usual. I felt a little wiser after learning this unexpected trivia.

“That was fun. I’m exhausted.

We were both a little over-excited, as we were yesterday.

We had been playing all morning and into the evening, and both Alice and I were on the verge of our physical limits. I was about to put the leisure sheet in my backpack and head for the bus stop when Alice stopped me.

“Takuma, wait a minute. Before we leave, why don’t you and I take a picture with the ocean and the sunset in the background?”

“Well, we’ve come all the way to Isshiki Beach in Kanagawa, so it would be a shame not to take a picture of it, wouldn’t it?”

I readily agreed to Alice’s suggestion and walked around the sunset-red sandy beach looking for the best spot. As I walked along, I noticed a couple of college students taking a selfie with the ocean and the sunset in the background, looking very friendly.

“I guess we are all thinking the same thing.”

“The combination of the ocean and the sunset looks really good, doesn’t it?”

I was sure that if I posted it on a social networking service, it would be a hit among my friends. Well, I’m a loner, so I don’t have any friends who would like my photos.

While I was thinking such self-deprecating thoughts, Alice seemed to have found a good spot and stopped to talk.

“Let’s take a picture around here, I think it’ll look better if we take it from this angle.”

“Alice is definitely better at this than me, so I’ll leave it to her to take the pictures.”

“Leave it to me, I’ll take a picture that will look great.”

Adjusting the angle, Alice started to take a selfie. After repeating this several times, it seems that she was able to take a photo that she was satisfied with.

“Takuma, look, look. Isn’t this a really good shot?

“Indeed, the sea and the sunset are clearly in the picture, and our faces are clearly visible.”

Alice’s photos were of a very high level.

“Then I’m going to use it as the new icon for LIME.”

“Oh, that’s a little …….”

If it is made the LIME icon, it might be seen by classmates and friends of Alice’s

“It’s not really a big deal, I’ve posted all the photos I’ve taken so far on my SNS anyway.”

“No, no, that’s completely new to me!?”

“Oh, didn’t I tell Takuma about that?’

Alice is pretending as if she had accidentally forgotten about it, but it must definitely be on purpose. The fact that it has been until now means that she’s also uploaded photos that I don’t want people to see, like the couples-only parfait.

:By the way, my social networking account is locked so that only my friends can see it, so you can rest assured of that.”

“There is absolutely nothing to reassure me. ……”

The fact that Alice has so many friends is a sure sign that she has been exposed to the public.

“So I’ve set it as my LIME icon.”

“Do whatever you want …….”

I could only reply helplessly.
