  1. Windy air caresses your cheek, cherry blossom petals fall under the blue sky... Your eyelids feel heavy now... Slowly you close your eyes and put your body to rest. Maybe you'll unlock another piece of memory in your dream...
  2.  
  3. “Do you want to sleep?” Suwako slowly pats your back as you lay sideways. “Go ahead, I'll wake you up when...”
  4.  
  5. Zzzzz...
  6.  
  7. ---
  8.  
  9. “Okay, put the rock back on the ground gently then you can rest,” Kanako lays down the rock that she lifts with her wind slowly, which Sanae carefully follows. They both then walk back to Suwako and sit on the mat.
  10.  
  11. “How's the training?”
  12.  
  13. “So far, she's doing well,” Kanako looks to the sleeping man on her fellow goddess's lap. “Can you wake him up after this?”
  14.  
  15. “Why?”
  16.  
  17. “Practicing with rocks won't do the trick. We need to train with a real human body,”
  18.  
  19. “I'll volunteer. I'm a spirit so if there's any accident when Sanae trains she won't hurt me as much as she'll hurt Nobu. No offense Sanae,” Suwako says and grabs a lunchbox from the basket and put it in front of Sanae. “Go ahead, enjoy your lunch first before training~ The taste is... [i]Miraculous[/i]. Hihihi...”
  20.  
  21. “Thank you, but it's only some rice balls and burgers...” Sanae chows down one of the rice balls. She throws a few glances at the man's peaceful sleep.
  22.  
  23. “Wanting to switch places Sanae?” Suwako smirks.
  24.  
  25. “Huh?”
  26.  
  27. “Admit it, you enjoy his sleeping face, right?” Her smirk widens. “You can look at him closer and even feel his head if you switch places with me~”
  28.  
  29. “O-Of course not!” Her face reddens. “Besides, we'll wake him up if we're switching places!”
  30.  
  31. “Shhh!” She puts her index finger on her lip. “You'll wake him up eventually with that high voice.”
  32.  
  33. “Sorry... But what's with that previous line? He's more like a brother to me than anything else.”
  34.  
  35. “Oh...” She rubs his hair again. “So he fills the big brother role or the little brother one?”
  36.  
  37. “I don't know... He sometimes gets himself in trouble really often...”
  38.  
  39. “Little brother that i-”
  40.  
  41. “Please don't tell him, or you'll hurt his pride...”
  42.  
  43. “Pride? By this time he should have learned that he has to swallow his pride in order to survive,” Kanako grabs the picnic basket to grab something. “Wait, why have you brought thi-”
  44.  
  45. “Psstt, that's for tonight's bathing,” Suwako snatches the basket, grabs a container filled with tea leaves and gives it to her. “You're looking for this, right?”
  46.  
  47. “Lady Suwako, what's in-”
  48.  
  49. “It's a secret!” She puts the basket away. “You'll know it later. Now, enjoy the scenery then go on with your training.”
  50.  
  51. “Okay... Lady Kanako, can I ask-”
  52.  
  53. “Sanae...” Suwako shakes her head. “Don't cheat~ Don't you agree, Kanako?”
  54.  
  55. “I think it's not something that you need to hide, it's only some sak-”
  56.  
  57. “Jeez, don't ruin the surprise! It's for Nobu anyway!”
  58.  
  59. “Sak- what? Sake?” Sanae guesses.
  60.  
  61. “Meh, busted...” Suwako gives the picnic basket to Sanae, which she peeks inside, and indeed there are some small bottles of sake and little . "We have to teach him how to drink these properly, right? I can't think of a better atmosphere than inside a hot spring, under the beautiful night-”
  62.  
  63. “This many!?”
  64.  
  65. “He won't drink them all, silly! We'll enjoy the sake together!” Suwako empties the basket on the mat except for the sake. “Mishaguji!”
  66.  
  67. The huge snake appears. Suwako knocks on his mouth and it opens, then she puts the basket inside.
  68.  
  69. “Hold this for me, will you? Don't devour them!” She pats it and the snake disappears.
  70.  
  71. “I'm not sure this is a good idea... And I never really drink these outside of rituals...”
  72.  
  73. “Then learn together with him. Isn't it fun to learn so many things in one day?” She slowly moves the man's head and stands up. “Let's give Sanae some examples, shall we Kanako?”
  74.  
  75. “I've not even drunk my tea yet...” She puts the glass full of hot tea on the mat and goes near the lake. “Ready?”
  76.  
  77. “Always.”
  78.  
  79. “Observe this Sanae,” Slowly Kanako lifts her fellow goddess with the wind. “It's not really that different from the rocks that you lifted earlier, but you have to be more careful since if he moves even a bit, it can screw the current and will throw the person that you carry.”
  80.  
  81. “Like thi-” Suwako starts moving around, and she starts to spinning uncontrollably. “Wheeeeeee!!!”
  82.  
  83. “...Just like that,” Kanako throws her to the nearby lake, then walks away to drink her tea.
  84.  
  85. *Splash!*
  86.  
  87. “Hey, you intentionally did that!”
  88.  
  89. “You can tell? I wouldn't have done that if you had taken this more seriously,” she rolls her eyes. “Besides, did you forget how to fly?”
  90.  
  91. “Why? The water is nice anyway,” Suwako swims back to the ground. “Come Sanae, your turn!”
  92.  
  93. ---
  94.  
  95. *Splash!*
  96.  
  97. Urgh... You open your eye. The sun is a bit low now. You turn your eyes to the source of the sound that wakes you up: Suwako's swimming in the lake, whilst Kanako and Sanae watch from above, flying.
  98.  
  99. “Try it again Sanae, you can do it!” Suwako yells from below.
  100.  
  101. “I don't know, this is the twentieth time I screw it up...”
  102.  
  103. “Then you will do it on the twenty-first! Don't give up!”
  104.  
  105. You slowly massage your forehead and try to remember your dream: Nope, no dream, no memory. Sigh... Better take a look at Sanae's training.
  106.  
  107. “Go!”
  108.  
  109. Suwako gets lifted by a wind, and slowly moves forward. Sanae concentrated hard just to make the wind stable.
  110.  
  111. “First obstacle!”
  112.  
  113. Obstacle? Kanako suddenly blows a mild wind to Suwako, making the wind wobbly for a while, but Sanae quickly stabilizes her wind.
  114.  
  115. “Second obstacle!”
  116.  
  117. Kanako blows Suwako again, this time from both sides.
  118.  
  119. “Woah, focus Sanae! Remember: Both sides!” Suwako spins around, but she hover still again after some time. “Good job!”
  120.  
  121. “Final obstacle!” Kanako yells and summons a strong wind. A [i]really[/i] strong wind that even stirs up the cherry blossoms petals on the side of the lake-
  122.  
  123. *Taptaptap!*
  124.  
  125. You can see someone run really fast into the bathhouse. The hell? Who's that? You walk towards the bathhouse too...
  126.  
  127. *Click!*
  128.  
  129. You slowly peek into the bathhouse: That's the paparazzi... She's taking pictures of the building's interior. It seems the goddesses aren't aware of her presence.
  130.  
  131. What should you do?
  132.  
  133. [] Ignore her. You'll ruin the 'picnic' if she shows up. Maybe she'll go away after a while...
  134.  
  135. [] Catch her off-guard. The worst that she can do is ask for an interview, so why not?
  136.  
  137. []Warn the goddesses. You can't deal with her alone. Better call the others for help.
