A dry thud rings out.

I take off my blindfold, wondering if this is the one that didn’t crack.

Come to think of it, there’s some kind of commotion all around me.

“Wow, it broke!”

My stick was broken. The broken stick was lying a little bit in front of the watermelon.

I took the broken stick and the watermelon I was going to break and ran back to Daiki and the others.

“Did you see that?! The stick broke!”

“I saw it too… I was so surprised…”


“Maybe the stick was too weak for the hardness of the watermelon?”

“Daiki, where did you get this stick from?”

In the end, we decided to have the watermelon cut by the beach house.

While Daiki was taking the watermelon to the beach house, I went to the bathroom.

Daiki came back at about the same time as I came back from the bathroom.

“All right then, let’s all eat watermelon together. The guy at the beach house said it was really hard.”


Under the beach parasol, the four of us lay side by side eating watermelon.

The time had just passed 2:00 p.m.

“Then, let’s eat.”

As we start eating the watermelon, we listen to the tropical music playing on the beach and eat watermelon in the ocean. This is good.

“Hey Shoma. What are you going to do after this?”

“What am I going to do after this? Well, I think it’s a good idea to just relax like this.”

“I brought my ball with me.”

“Were you thinking of playing beach volleyball?”

“Well. Everyone seems pretty laid back.”

“Masuda-san’s just lying on the beach.”

It’s like half-bathing in the ocean and just chatting. I feel like this is a good idea.

After that, we all got out of the water and split up easily into men and women, and eventually decided to play beach volleyball.

“Okay, let’s go.”



Three points ahead. The result was that the women’s team won. Surprisingly, it was over quickly.

“By the way, it’s been a while since I’ve been this physically active.”

“Well… I’m a little tired.”

“Then, I’m going to go take a bath in the ocean.”

“You look like someone who’s going to take a bath because tired.”

Hinano was floating on a floatation ring. The two of us were sitting on the beach parasol.

We watched the two of them from under the beach parasol as if we were watching them.

Ayaka and I are feeling a little uncomfortable.

“Hey, Shoma.”

“What’s going on?”

“It’s fun.”

“W-What are you talking about suddenly? Well, yes, it is. It’s fun”

“I’ve actually never been with a friend like this before.”

“Well, that’s good. No big deal.”

“If I had been picked up, what would you have done?”

“Well, I would have tried to stop him. But I don’t know what would have happened. In fact, it didn’t happen…”

“I see. I was thinking about what to say no to the pick-up.”

“What were you going to say?”

“I’m sorry. I like someone else.”

“….I see.”

I didn’t know what to say back to Ayaka’s words.

Daiki and Hinano come out of the sea. It was already past 3:30.

“It’s almost time to meet up with the others.”

“Shall we go home then?”


After changing in the changing room, packing our bags, and tying up our floatation rings, we gathered on time.

Then we took the bus back to the inn.

Daiki and Ayaka were tired and had fallen asleep.

“Hey Shoma,”

I heard a whisper from Hinano.

“What’s wrong?”

“Thank you for complimenting my clothes and swimsuit.”

“Y-yeah. You’re welcome.”

“The swimsuit Shoma was wearing was cool too.”

“…T-Thank you.”

“What’s wrong, Shoma, you’re so shy.”

“No, I chose this one with confidence. I went to buy it with Daiki the other day.”

“Oh, really? I want to hear about it.”

I told her about the time I went shopping for swimsuits with Daiki.

“Did he recommend you two weird ones? That must have been tough.”

“Yeah. I can’t wear a bikini right.”

Of course, I was joking, but I was also including the fact that he recommended two weird things to me.

After that, we talked in the quiet bus.

That time was very enjoyable.

After a short bus ride, we arrived at the inn.

We each returned to our rooms, rubbing our sleepy eyes.
