I got out of the drum-bathtub before Yurina-san and wiped Ash’s body with a towel. After I finished getting dressed, I returned to the living room with Ash in my arms. I didn’t have the heart to find out Yurina-san’s expression after I had left her to soak in the bath.
Sarasa was grinning from ear to ear upon seeing my completely bright red face.
So you’re the culprit!
While sitting in front of the fireplace, I used ‘wind’ to dry my hair and Ash’s wet body. It was important to dry your hair so you wouldn’t catch a cold in winter.
At that moment, the door to the cabin was opened with a clank. The cold winter wind was blowing into the living room together with Yurina-san who had finished bathing. Yurina-san’s cheeks were puffed magnificently. As soon as our eyes met, I could see a vision of a flickering burning blue flame behind her.
Maybe she’s mad because I left her alone in the bath?
I handed her a letter that said “beautiful Yurina-san” written on it. The burning flame behind her changed from blue to red and the puffed cheeks became slightly smaller.
In addition, I also showed her another letter that said “I like you. I love you, Yurina-san. I’m sorry for running away before”. The fire behind her was completely extinguished and her smile finally returned.
She then slipped her arm into mine and gestured to me to dry her hair as well. Gently, I stroked her hair and used wind magic to dry it.
Although I felt like I wanted to have a few words with Margo and Sarasa who were watching our whole exchange from the start to finish with a lukewarm gaze in their eyes. I recommended them to take a bath and the two of them went for a bath together, showing how intimate they were.
We still had some raw sea urchin left. The party continued on until late at night, complemented with a side dish that in my opinion, was not an exaggeration to say that it was the best food I had ever tasted since I first came to this world.
T/N:Good thing the issue is resolved quickly~ Also, I personally don’t like uni either. I tried one in Japan and I don’t really like it. The… Sea flavour is fishy for me. Maybe it won’t taste as fishy if you mix it with egg? But I feel like it’s a waste to use such an expensive ingredient like uni to make an omelet.
