Yurizono Iris (百合園イリス) She has long silver hair that shines. Pure red eyes. She is a gorgeous college student. She is Arisu’s older sister. She is taller and has a bigger bust than Arisu.
Also Even though Arisu and Iris have to same last name. Amane usually refers to Arisu as Yurizono. And Iris as just Iris.
It’s Alice using the super cutesy way of her referring to herself with her own name. I don’t always translate it, but I’ll do it some times, so keep that in mind(I’m make sure it’s obvious though). Also I don’t always translate the “-sans” but Amane usually uses them.
I need to be attentive so nobody drowns. That’s a given.
I plan on watching a making sure nobody gets swept away.
But there are times when it’s hard to see them.
It’s because of skirt chasers. Pick up artist.
The two most beautiful girls and the most beautiful girls in our class are in our group. In addition to that, Iris is an overwhelming beauty.
There are so many beautiful girls. Moreover the beach is an open space, and they are wearing swimsuits, which expose a lot of skin, although they are wearing a parka over them currently.
No matter where we go, the skirt chasers follow.
I was making preventive measures when we were planning this trip, however now all those plans fell apart.
I have no choice but to come up with other plans.
So the plans are as followed.
Stay close to the life guards. And understand where nearby lifeguards are.
Usually they are close to where families will be.
If possible, stay together and refrain from skin ship. It goes without saying, but we need to stay away from secluded areas. Those pick up artist are going to follow us.
If they try to pick us up, refuse them clearly.
If the other party is persistent or rough, I have a security buzzer on hand, and I’m prepared to use it. If the going gets rough, we have no choice but to run away.
It’s sad that I have to do this, but this is just the reality we live in.
Takanashi and them are pretty level-headed. And the two beauties aren’t pushovers. So at least that helps.
However the real danger is Iris-san.
She is a super beauty and she is timid.
So a group of high leveled beautiful girls is a perfect hunting for pick up artist.
And when the oldest one is so weak, they may come to a conclusion that they can just continue their persistence. If they keeping nagging her it’s likely she’ll just fall under the pressure. And she looks like the adult figure of the group, so she is the one suppose to defend us with her full strength.
It was already a critical level A, however now it seems necessary to raise it to a S level.
So I really need to brace myself.- – –
“O-Oi, look at them.”
“Woah. . .”
There was a sheet placed on the sandy beach with an umbrella set covering it. Currently everybody is here. There are a lot of men conscious of us, but no one is coming close.
The reason why.
“That group is such a high level, but . . .”
“It’s cute, but a cute in another way. . .”
“That’s a shame. If we call out to them, we’ll get immediately reported. . .”
The men who are conscious of us are having that conversation.
It’s all thanks to Yanomiya.
Yanomiya looks like a primary school student. And here with us kinda makes them have second thoughts.
Certainly, it’s likely if people see you trying to pick up somebody while having Yanomiya with you, the authority will surely be notified.
(“Don’t worry about getting attacked by hooligans, Amane. Because, I will not allow it. Cause I am a mighty swordsman. And because I’m a mighty swordsman, if any hoodlums try to I’ll turn the tables on them.”)
Yanomiya said that when she was cosplaying as a swordsman.
She promised to protect us, and she did. Thank you our little swordsman. I will forever be in your debt.
All thanks to her loli appearance. So you can’t flirt with her, because you can understandably get angry at them.
That’s why our tiny swordsman is the ultimate defense from pick up artist. Although the Yurizono sisters are still very dangerous.
The older sister is so weak, so that’s dangerous. And the little sister is so unpredictable, so that’s dangerous.
I have to keep an eye on those two.
“Iris-san, can I say something?”
I called out to Iris-san as everybody was putting all the luggage in order.
Iris-san looked at me as she was in a leisurely seiza on the sheet.
Why are you humbling yourself to a high-school student. . . .
Well it doesn’t matter now. There is something I need to say.
“Iris-san, we are inexperienced high school students who don’t know a lot about the world. So we are going to need to count on you as a guardian. So think about us and please always monitor us. We’ll be in your care.”
I deeply bowed after saying that.
Iris-san I’m sure wants to please us. And perhaps it would give Yurizono a better impression of her if she does.
And for the sake of our safety and us not to be troubled, we need to rely on her a bit.
So I want her to act as the adult figure, and be our guardian. It’s just keeping an eye on us and making sure we are safe.
It may be a burden for Iris-san, but it is necessary to lower the already high risk.
“R-Rely. . .on me?. . .”
She raised a shock voice.
There were tears spilling down her face.
“T-This is. . .the first time in my life. . .anybody has recognized me as someone to rely on. . .”
Iris-san covered her mouth while crying as she whimpered that.
“I heard about Amane-chan from Arisu-chan. “The best Onee-chan in the world” she said. And Amane-chan cared about me in the car. So it has to be the person Arisu-chan was talking about. . .And now that amazing person is relying on me. . .”
Iris-san said to me. I’m starting to have a bad feeling about this.
“Without fail, I will protect Amane-chan. Even if it cost my own life. . .”
Iris-san declared as she was kneeling down doing a dogeza towards me while on the sheet.
“I-Iris-san. Please raise your head Iris-san.”
I said as I gently pat her shoulder.
It’s like you really want me to forgive you for something.
Iris’s shoulders where shaking while muttering “I want to protect you. . .”
That might have had too strong of an impact on her. Well for the time being, I shouldn’t be too worried about her wandering off now.
Well now next is Iris-san’s younger sister trouble-chan.
Once Iris-san calmed down, I got up and went towards her little sister.
“Arisu-chan. Can you not separate from Onee-chan? Can you promise Onee-chan?”
I sat down besides Yurizono, and with a snap, smiled and said that. I needed to say that so I could soften her up.
“Mama Amane Onee-chan? . . .”
Yurizono looked up to me and played dumb, tilting her head at me as she said that.
This guy. . .
“Y-Yes. . . Mama Amane Onee-chan.”
I felt my face cramp as I answered Yurizono.
“Mama! Mama Amane Onee-chan! I will never leave you!”
Yurizono pounced me and hugged tightly as she shouted that.
“Mama Amane Onee-chan!”
Yurizono was hugging me, but Alice soon instantly appeared and delivered divine punishment. Slapping her off me.
W-Well, yeah. With that settled I don’t need to worry about her wandering off.
And now, next off is.
Alice responded to me and looked away. I don’t think she’ll leave my side, but still. . .
Even though Alice has been patient the whole time in the car, once we got to the beach I greeted the Yurizonos. So it’s natural for her to feel bad.
I said softly as I embraced her.
“Because I’m smart Onee-chan, I know I can’t always act really spoiled. But I do get really lonely.”
While we were hugging, Alice whispered to me in a kind voice.
She started to tremble in my arms.
“Onee-chan you idiot. . .”
She looked up at me a burst into tears. That got me right in the heart.
“I was lonely. So very lonely.”
She said in a shivering voice with a rough throat. She hugged me tightly and buried her face into my chest.
It’s clear that the patience put a toll on you.
I guess it’s alright if we stay like this until you calm down.
Once Alice has calmed down, now I need to think about Yanomiya.
“Thank you very much.”
“As one would expect of Amane-chan. Once there is a crisis, she instantly goes in to fix it.”
“It was a sight to see.”
The three of them came to me at the perfect time, then complimented. Takanashi then handed me a cold juice can and a cold water bottle.
An intense emotion washed over me. . .
I’ve been dealing with Alice and Tyrant Alice, and nobody has ever thanked me for it.
However now it’s different. I’ve never would have imagined being thanked for it, but now that I have, I’m feeling giddy. . .
“Y-You guys. . Appreciate. . .”
I desperately tried to finish my sentence to them as I held back my tears, but I couldn’t managed to finish it.
“Of course we would. We are grateful for you being our friend all the time.”
“That’s right. It’s just like what Rin-chan said.”
“Amane. I want to return the favor one day.”
The three of them said that so naturally. I was desperately holding back my tears, but I felt the dam breaking. Some of them were leaking through.
“Thank you . Thank you guys for being my friends. . .”
I wiped my tears away and smiled as I returned the words.
The three of them raised their voices as they lunged into a group hug with me.
“A-Amane. Next, Next time promise to take a bath with me!”
“Rin-chan, should we decide this with rock-paper-scissors?”
“Amane, if we go camping let’s go explore the deep forest.”
They are just berating me with request now.
“Wa-Wait Ena! You got to take a bath last time, you said I could take a bath with her next time!”
“Fufu, I’ve come to miss Amane-chan’s skin.”
An unusual sight occurred, as Kiniwa and Takanashi started fighting.
Yanomiya made me sit down, and then used that as a chance to sit on my lap.
I’m really happy right now. Although I would be more happy if I could return home and get out of this swimsuit.
Although it seems like a hopeless wish.
I just don’t want to be in this swimsuit.
TN here. Hi. I thought this would be longer but nah. I may have been able to finish it sooner, but I’ve been very busy recently. There also was a lot of difficult sentences this chapter.
I kinda wanted to see skirt chasers try to pick up Amane and then the group instantly murdering them. However it wasn’t meant to be. You could really sense the unhealthy attachment Alice and Amane have for each other this chapter. Next chapter we should still be at the beach and the swimsuit unveiling will happen then.
Next chapter be in 2-4 days.
If you’d like to send a coffee my way. https://ko-fi.com/G2G6EFF3# there is the means to do it.
