Ahaha, Haru-chan is really getting into this. She responds to my surprise attack right away. It's really satisfying to see this side of her, when she decides not to be Little Miss Perfect and just go with the flow. We keep launching water attacks at each other, enjoying ourselves to the fullest. If she can be like this on the trip, it will be great.
This is like we are primary school kids again. Playing around without a care in the world. Haru-chan's smile really is something to behold. A symbol of her genuine cuteness. Seeing her like that makes me want to give her a tight hug like what I usually do to my cat plushies. Even though she's more like a trained guard dog in terms of personality: always dutiful and loyal, and only enjoys herself when being requested to.
While trying to dodge Haruka's strikes, I manage to get another comment in:
"You said you only wore a kimono on certain occasions. *splash* That's even better, *splash* as the moment you wear it *splash* is definitely something to look forward to, *splash* right?"
Yes, definitely. People like to see something they can't regularly. It's common sense. Like seeing a lunar eclipse or a colorful aurora, or seeing someone you know in ceremonial outfits. Rarity truly has a strange appeal, which has enticed humans since ancient times.
I decide to swim away from Haru-chan a little bit, after the adrenaline rush has subsided. I laughed so much during our little battle that I forgot to breathe. I decide to float with my face looking at the night sky.
"We won't wear our yukatas during our trip, but you have to wear yours when going to the summer festivals, get it? I will enjoy dressing you up when the time comes. Maybe we can invite those two to come along, too."
I really look forward to those festivals, just so that I can wear a lovely yukata. The light fabric, and the lovely colors, I love them. It is a nice change of image, too. Also, I can have Haru-chan as my own dress-up doll.
But enough about our appearances, and it will be quite some time until the summer festivals, so let's change the topic.
"Haru-chan, what do you like to do when we get to Okinawa? I initially intended to simply enjoy the scenery and play in the sea, but do you have something in mind?"
