Nanase Tsubasa Tapestry SS: What Could Be Seen From that Back
I lie face down on the sand, taking the required position and wait on standby.
It’s the final match for the Beach Flags event.
My opponent is Tokunaga-senpai from the 3rd year. Her timing for the last 2 matches were flawless.
I think I have the advantage regarding power when kicking the sand, but any miss on my part will be lethal. Which means that as long as I don’t make a miss and get slowed down, she is someone I should beat.
The sound of the pistol being fired reverberates throughout the beach.
The same moment the sound reaches my ears, I stand up while turning around.
At about the same time, I feel her take a similar stance and become convinced of my victory.
Taking a small lead from the first moment, I then wholeheartedly went for the flag.
Ayanokouji-senpai is also watching this battle nearby.
While showing too much of my abilities here is a demerit to me, I cannot hold back.
I went all out compared to the two other people in my group.
That’s because I feel like I have to show them my full power at all times.
Before I knew it, the flag is right in front of me and I stretch out my hand to take it.
Feeling relieved over securing the win in this final round I breath in and out to calm down.
“What a terrifying 1st year. It’s my loss.”
Tokunaga-senpai, who came in after me, said as reached out her hand for a handshake.
“Thank you so much, Tokunaga-senpai.”
“You know about me?”
“I looked at the OAA app for any upperclassmen I had to be wary of when preparing for this special exam.”
I managed to win since I knew she was athletic and didn’t let my guard down.
I went with Tokunaga-senpai to wash off the sand before receiving the mineral water as reward for participating.
“That was an overwhelming victory.”
While being refreshed by the cold water, Ayanokouji-senpai calls out to me.
“Thank you so much. I managed to win somehow.”
He was thinking about something while staring at me.
I try to not let it bother me and ignore it, but he still continues to stare.
I somehow begin feeling a bit bothered by it or shall I say a bit distracted by it.
I was wearing a swimsuit so I can’t help but feel a bit embarrassed by it.
“I can’t really relax when you are, staring at me like that…”
I instinctively said.
I have never showed so much of my skin to anybody before so… yeah.
“Whops, you’re right. My bad.”
He apologises and looks another way but I still can’t relax and turn my gaze somewhere else.
I hope I can calm down a bit but…
I am spending a lot of alone time with him during this uninhabited special exam.
Which also means that we, a boy and a girl, are moving around together.
That felt like — a bit of problem to me.
Oh, no no.
If I continue thinking about this, my plan will break down.
Ayanokouji-senpai seems to be talking to Kiriyama-senpai so I’m going to change while I have the chance.
I decide to go and wash these unexpected feelings off me.
