Swimsuit SS: Karuizawa Kei
“Hey, what’s so funny?”
During the evening, Karuizawa said this while looking at the students who were returning to the changing rooms. She was sitting near the window, her hair drenched, water droplets falling from her hair to the ground.
The reason of this was because, a moment ago, I pushed Karuizawa, who was unwilling to swim in the pool, to the water.
She looked as if she was going to vomit at any moment while looking at the students with contempt.
“You... Forget about it, it’s not really anything, but if I really have to say it, you are also part of those people.”
It could be said that Karuizawa had got the most female friends in the class. Weekdays and weekends she probably spent the time meeting with lots of friends to play everywhere.
“Only people like me who can’t be in the limelight can look down at groups of people like those”
“Hey, although it might be like this…”
Karuizawa somewhat showed understanding, but she probably couldn’t accept my words, so she kept speaking.
“Although I believe everybody thinks in the same way, they would have a negative attitude towards things that are outside of their scope of understanding. That is, what’s called their inner perception, maybe? Isn’t there some moments where you believe “this is absolutely the truth”, right?
Karuizawa voiced this speech, not because she wanted to show off. Having seen her usual attitude, I had never thought that she would make such a reliable speech, so I couldn’t help but gasp in admiration to these words.
“What, did I say something strange”?
“No… It’s just that I have similar thoughts.”
It’s just that I never thought Karuizawa and I had these identical thoughts. With her outer appearance and her actions being so different, her inner being was very reliable. I guess that currently nobody apart from Hirata knows about this.
I did not look at her, but I raised a topic – that included her scar.
“I actually think I have a method to solve that”
Wearing a swimsuit does not imply showing the abdomen. Although it would require to pay close attention while changing clothes, that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be done. In the event someone were to tease Karuizawa, the circumstances would not be the same, but I don’t think anybody would pick a quarrel with her while changing clothes.
“It’s not only about this issue. I just simply dislike swimming in a public place. And my body would be completely exposed if I wore a swimsuit”
