Yanomiya Sora(夜乃宮蒼穹) Aka Kuu-chan. Looks like a elementary student at first glance but she is a high school senior. Her long black hair goes down to her waist. She has large cute eyes and a really cute appearance in general. Is manly and reliable. Making her perhaps Amane’s favorite.

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. Also I don’t always translate the “-sans” but Amane usually uses them.
Yurizono was standing in front of our house in the morning, waving her hand while loudly saying that.
Even though the summer heat should have defeated her, the excitement in the air was just too much.
Moreover, she wore a hat, a nylon jacket, tough trousers, tough shoes and even gloves.
I wonder if Yurizono misunderstood something.
Well, even though it’s morning, the temperature is pretty hot. Maybe she never been to the mountains so she is overestimating what’s up there.
“Are. . .You not hot?”
Besides me, Alice muttered that.
Sweat was dripping down from the red face of Yurizono while she raised her right hand and smiled.
“I-It’s hot. . .”
Yurizono said that with a smile, then she crumbled to the ground.
Even under normal circumstances that is dangerous. What are you doing?
“Even though you know that. . . You idiot.”
Alice said that with a great mighty sigh. After that we ran outside to the entrance, crouched over and took off her jacket.
“You aren’t a child anymore, so think for yourself. . . .Or is this the results of you thinking?”
While removing the jacket, Alice muttered that and gave a big sigh.
“I-it’s getting cooler. . .”
While we were taking off her jacket, Yurizono deliriously muttered that while fanning herself.
Well of course it’s getting cooler when we take off your jacket, but I probably should just keep quiet.
Also, As I thought. Alice has changed. She used to quarrel with Yurizono every time they get close, but recently(although she makes it seem begrudgingly) has been taking care of her.
I thought the change would be gradual, but since she met Iris-san, it’s been dramatic.
Anyways – – –
Alice noticed my look and averted her eyes seeming like she was holding her temper.
Finally Alice was able to remove Yurizono’s nylon jacket.
It seems like she was really hot because she is drenched in sweat. She was wearing a white T-shirt underneath, and because of the sweat it was sticking to her skin and transparent.
“You’re so sweaty and filthy.”
Alice grumbled in an annoy voice.
I wonder if a guy would have said it was filthy to a sweaty wet and transparent T-shirt wearing Yurizono. She is one of the 2 most beautiful girls.
At least I don’t think it’s dirty.
As I thought, Alice is a girl and I’m thinking as a guy.
“Although it may be difficult, Please take care of my daughters.”
Our mother came out to see us off and thank Iris-san for her kindness.
“H-Hai , I’ll do my best!”
Though with a shaky voice, Iris-san answered my mother with a determined look.
Iris-san is actually an adult, so she should be our guardian, but I am a bit worried about her.
Well actually, everyone (besides Yurizono) is pretty reliable.
Takanashi never does anything unreasonable. It goes without saying that Kiniwa is perfect. Alice doesn’t leave my side, and contrary to Yanomiya’s childish appearance she is actually a steadfast person who knows what to do and not to do.
The problem really is- – –
“Hurry let’s leave! So we can fish and then grill it to eat!”
Yurizono who had just fallen from her heat overload quickly recovered and is now making noise again. Moreover the T-shirt she is wearing is still transparent with sweat.
In some way, her suffering from heat exhausting during the summer was a real help, but now. . .
“I want it to be early in the evening! I’m looking forward to Amane’s curry! I want to catch a fish, grill it, and then eat it with everybody!”
Yurizono just smiled as she talked about food.
It’s annoying, but at the same time, It’s a mood setter.
“It feels like I’ve just seen the real Yurizono after a while of not seeing her.”
Takanashi looked at Yurizono in disbelief, but she had a smile as she muttered that.
“Ehh? So the Yurizono-san we met to plan the camp was a duplicate?”
Kiniwa said in a sarcastic response to Takanashi as she chuckled with smile.
“D-Duplicate!? Amazing! I had a hunch, but it really was a fake!”
Once she heard Kiniwa’s joke, Yanomiya raised a shocked voice
Duplicate?. . . Well I guess a low energy Yurizono doesn’t feel like Yurizono.
“Aren’t you going to be worn out if you are this excited in the morning?”
Alice grabbed the hyper Yurizono’s arm to try and calm her down.
She looks more like the older sister than Iris-san who is just flustered by Yurizono’s excitement.
“I really am looking forward to fishing, curry and so on. But what I’m really looking forward to the most is the hot springs.”
“It will be nice to look at the starry night sky while enjoying an open air bath.”
Takanashi and Kiniwa were having a pleasant conversation, when then I heard the words that sent a shiver down my spine.
I forgot. I totally forgot! There was a hot spring!
“And we are going in an open air bath with Amane.”
“Hey- – Let’s go-.”
Takanashi took my right arm and Kiniwa took my left arm respectively. They said that with a smile on their face.
I felt my face cramp as I said that.
I would like to avoid the hot springs if possible,but it’s impossible to refuse them.
I guess it would be very lucky to enter the hot springs with several beautiful girls. However that delusion may not be that amazing in reality, it’s actually a pretty stressful.
Even more so because everyone trust me.
“A open air bath would be really enjoyable, wouldn’t it?”
Iris-san said while laughing with her hands at her heart.
And then there is her.
An overwhelming beautiful third year college student. I almost died with just Kiniwa, but if I enter with her I might actually die.
“I wonder if there is a giant stag beetle. That would be great if there is one, But it’s so rare. Although if there is just a rhinoceros beetle that would be cool too.”
With her face dyed red, Yanomiya read an insect book that she probably brought from her house. She was looking at it so happily.
Perhaps I should just stay close to Yanomiya and Alice if I enter the hot spring. I may be able to manage if I do that.
“Well then. We’ll get going now.”
Iris-san told my mother.
“Okay. Take care you guys.”
My mother answered with a smile. Everybody gave their goodbyes to my mother. She gave a wave towards us as we Iris-san’s car.
“Amane, You were so excited just a little time ago, but you are so quiet right now.”
After we entered the car, Takanashi looked at me with an anxious expression and asked me.
“Fufu, Are you perhaps thinking of a way to escape the hot spring because you are afraid you might have erotic thoughts?”
I was startled by Kiniwa’s playful remark. She said so with a chuckle and a smile.
Kiniwa can sometimes see right through me.
“Well then, let’s get going.”
Following Iris-san’s call the car started slowly moving.
We looked behind us to see our mother waving towards us. Everybody waved back to her.
At last, we are on our way to the campsite.
I was so excited for it yesterday,but now I’m just anxious after hearing about the hot spring.
Iris-san, Kiniwa and Takanashi are an extremely dangerous combo.
If that happen I might have no choice but to escape at the last moment.
I’ll enjoy the fishing, the cooking, and everything in between, but when the time comes I may need to do something drastic at the last moment.
I instructed myself that multiple times on the way there.
It’s here. The campsite is finally here. Hopefully it won’t be as shallow as the beach arc,but I have a good feeling it won’t be. Also I don’t know why Amane is so worried, it’s not like it will be so well obvious. She should just get used to it.
Umm next chapter in I don’t know probably 4-7 days. I’m going to be really busy for the next few days and I’m honestly really stressed about that but I’ll be okay. So I’ll see you guys next time when I release that chapter.
Also Thank to RtyQ for keeping the thank train going and the thankful message. I’m really thankful and grateful for the thankage and thanking of my work. It’s thanks to that I keep going. Also if we don’t stop this, a thankful implosion might occur and tear reality apart. Reality will probably be thankful for the break, but still.
I’m tired. https://ko-fi.com/G2G6EFF3# Also look at that. I did the thing to the link.
