Summary Edit

As the afternoon at the leisure pool peaked, more students gathered and crowded everywhere. To Kiyotaka Ayanokōji, who preferred to act alone, thought that this was a good time to pull away from from Suzune Horikita and the others. However, as he was about to depart, an anxious Airi Sakura pulled his arm. Both of them did not cope with big crowds, thus, they decided to move to the corner to at least upheave their discomfort. Though at some moments, they were almost separated from one another as either one of them were being swallowed by the crowd. To Kiyotaka, all of this was just entertainment for him. After a while, he set aside his silly game and seriously aimed for Airi. In order not to get scattered with the latter, they followed the wall of the facility near to them.

Kiyotaka broke the ice by asking Airi whether she was going to swim or not. The latter replied that she was going to pass given that she wasn't good at it. She also asked Kiyotaka the same question while feeling sorry that he had to stay with her instead of having a good time elsewhere. Kiyotaka thought it nothing, teasing and saying he was having a very good time.

Airi lightens up and changed her mind about swimming, calling Kiyotaka to swim with her. To ensure she wasn't going to pull back, Kiyotaka called on Airi to remove her top. To Airi, that would be embarrassing, with so many people around them. However, he assured her that they are going to be seen as invisible since their inconspicuousness had been evaluated with high marks. To completely assure her of everything being fine, Kiyotaka offered to conceal her from the public. He assured that he won't gaze and look back at her.

While Airi was changing, though he wasn't looking, Kiyotaka was somehow aroused as he kept the surreal sound of friction of her coat from behind resonating in his head. The moment ended with them agreeing on plunging themselves in the pool while holding each other's hand -- a couple alone in a trance -- feeling happy regardless of how mundane the future they would be facing soon.
