Escaping the Heat of Summer

Arriving at a villa belonging to Kaoru's uncle,
the local scenery reminds Eve of her past.

Transcript


Day One of Trip - Morning
 


Highlands - Villa
 

Kaoru: At last, we have arrived at our humble abode.
Eve: Wow... This is such a wonderful area! That sparkling lake, those gorgeous mountains... They take my breath away.
Saaya: That's for sure. Mmm, breathing in that fresh air feels so good.
Rimi: The wind really is refreshing, isn't it~? It's hard to believe we're in the same country.
Tomoe: No kidding. Back home it's so darn hot out. I'm so glad we're here.
Kaoru: I'm glad to hear you like it. My uncle has said to make ourselves at home...
Eve: That's right, this is your uncle's villa, correct...? It reminds me of the mokki I stayed at back in Finland.
Kaoru: Mokki... What a lovely-sounding word. Someday I hope to see such a Northern European paradise with my own eyes.
Saaya: Isn't mokki what they call cottages in Finland?
Eve: Yes! During summer vacation, families often stay in mokkis to relax and spend time together. They aren't anything like this beautiful villa though.
Rimi: This place really is pretty, isn't it?! Ah, we should take a picture! I have to send it to Kasumi-chan.
Saaya: Oh yeah, she really wanted to come, didn't she? Too bad her family's plans got in the way.
Tomoe: I should take some pictures for my bandmates too. Himari was pretty jealous when I told her~.
Eve: I shall also take some photos! I'm sure everyone in Pastel*Palettes is very busy right now.
Kaoru: A photograph, eh...? Perhaps I shall send one to everyone in Hello, Happy World!
Saaya: Oh yeah, you're the only Hello, Happy World! member here today.
Kaoru: Alas, our schedules did not align as we had hoped. This was a last-minute trip after all.
Eve: Your invitation really was sudden... Fufu.
Rimi: I was so surprised when you invited me while I was downtown.
Tomoe: Yeah, a three-day trip isn't usually something you plan on a whim. I was pretty shocked too.
Kaoru: Which is why I am ever so grateful to you all for taking the time to accompany me.
Saaya: We're the ones who should be thanking you! I can't believe I get to visit such an amazing place.
Kaoru: Your kind words are much appreciated. Now then, enough chit-chat, my dears. Let us go inside.


Villa - Living Room
 

Rimi: We're coming in... Wow~!
Tomoe: Now this... is one heck of a house! Is it really okay for us to have this place all to ourselves?
Kaoru: But of course. My uncle has even provided us with any necessities we may need during our stay. If we require anything else, we can always contact him.
Eve: Huh? That room... Is that a sauna?
Kaoru: Quite the rarity, no? It appears my aunt is quite fond of them, so they had it installed.
Saaya: Whoa... This really is like a different world. We'll have to thank them in person later. They own the horseback riding club close by, right?
Kaoru: They'll be stopping by later, so you'll have your chance then.
Rimi: This whole trip was originally so you could go horseback riding, right? That's so cool... I can't believe you can ride a horse...
Kaoru: Fufu, I assure you, I am not nearly as skilled as you might imagine.
Eve: Is it really alright for us to go horseback riding with you? I'd hate to cause you any trouble or hold you back...
Kaoru: Think nothing of the sort. There are some things you can only experience when in a group. That alone makes it worthwhile. You have nothing to worry about.
Eve: Kaoru-san... Thank you!
Tomoe: ... Come to think of it, the five of us don't really hang out that often, do we?
Rimi: It was just luck that brought us together...
Saaya: Yeah, it certainly is a bit strange, but exciting! We're in a whole new world with a whole new set of friends!
Kaoru: This too is but a fleeting adventure predestined by fate... We must seize this opportunity to enjoy ourselves!
Rimi: Yeah♪
Tomoe: On that note, let's have some fun! We're going horseback riding today, right? Then we should probably figure out what we wanna do tomorrow.
Saaya: That's true. We're here for three days after all. I've heard there's a few sightseeing locations nearby, as well as a place we can do some shopping. We've got plenty of choices!
Rimi: Ah, I was thinking this when we were outside, but a barbeque by the lake would be nice too! I bet the outdoors would make meat taste extra good...
Eve: ...
Kaoru: Any thoughts, Eve-chan?
Eve: Ah, no! All of these ideas sound wonderful!
Kaoru: That they do. However, if there is anything you would care to do, do not hesitate to ask. I will do whatever I can to make your desires reality.
Eve: Thank you, Kaoru-san! I will be sure to let you know if I think of anything.
Kaoru: My thanks, dear. Now, Eve-chan, let us enjoy the mokki of Japan!
Eve: Fufu... Yes!

On Horseback!

At a nearby horse-riding club, Tomoe comes face-to-face with a horse named Silver.

Horseback Riding Club
 

Tomoe: Whoa, look at the size of this place~! I can't believe we're in Japan.
Eve: How wonderful! I can't believe a place like this exists in this country as well!
Saaya: Fufu, you two sure are excited... Kaoru-san asked us to wait here, right? I wonder what's taking her so long?
Rimi: Ah, since it's Kaoru-san, so maybe she's planning a grand entrance!
Saaya: Come on now, that can't be-
Kaoru: Ha, ha, ha, ha~! I have arrived at last, my little kittens!
Rimi & Saaya: Kaoru-san...!
Kaoru: Riding in on my noble steed... I have come for you!
Rimi: Wow...! Kaoru's riding a white horse!
Saaya: Rimi-rin was right...!
Tomoe: Haha! Seta-senpai, now that was an entrance!
Eve: That was so cool! Amazing, Kaoru-san! Your riding skills are truly remarkable!
Kaoru: That was not me, my dear... It was all White's doing! It's been so long since I've seen her, but it appears she remembers me. I had no problems riding her.
White: Snort!
Saaya: That really was impressive. Are you sure we'll be able to ride them though? I'm a little worried...
Kaoru: Myself and the trainer will be here with you, so worry not. Besides, our goal today is to go trail riding.
Rimi: What's that?
Eve: It's like going hiking in the mountains, but on horseback. Doesn't that sound fun?!
Tomoe: Alright, let's do this! I wanna ride a horse already!
Eve: Me too! I've always wondered what it felt like to have the wind blow through your hair as you ride a horse... I bet it feels great!
Rimi: If Kaoru-san's our teacher, then I'm sure I can do it...!
Kaoru: Now then, our horseback riding lesson can officially begin!
Kaoru: Has everyone mounted their steeds?
Eve: Y-yes.
Saaya: Sort of... Urgh, although I feel a bit shaky.
Kaoru: Saaya-chan. Sit up straight and face forward towards the horizon. Above all else, remember to relax.
Saaya: Alright... Uhm... Ah, hey, that really helped!
Kaoru: Remember to maintain that posture while riding. Now then, how are you doing, Rimi-chan?
Rimi: Urgh... I-I can't mount this horse~... What if I'm too heavy...?
Kaoru: Haha! Fear not, my little kitten. These horses are more than strong enough to hold you.
Rimi: A-are you sure...?
Kaoru: Indeed I am. Shall I assist you? Come, take my hand.
Rimi: Wh-what?! I get to hold Kaoru-san's hand...!
Kaoru: Are you ready, dear? One, two... three!
Rimi: Wah...!
Ah... I did it... I'm on the horse!
Kaoru: See? You're perfectly safe now. One of the most important parts of horseback riding is trusting your steed. If you do so, they in turn will trust you.
Eve: You're such a good teacher, Kaoru-san!
Saaya: Yeah, your teachings are easy to understand, but very thorough.
Eve: Ahaha... Hm? What about Tomoe-san?
Tomoe: Whoa there! Whoa!
Kaoru: Tomoe-chan! Are you alright?!
Wait, that horse... Is that Silver?!
Silver: Snort!
Tomoe: Hahaha! You're a real troublemaker, aren't you?! Calm down now... Whoa there!
Eve: A-amazing. That horse is moving so much, yet Tomoe-san isn't losing her balance...
Saaya: In fact, she seems to be enjoying herself...
Kaoru: That horse can be a bit fussy at times. I personally do not think Silver is very well-suited to beginners...
Tomoe: Ahaha! This horse is a real cutie! Nice to meet you, horsey!
Kaoru: However, it seems Tomoe-chan can handle it. Now that everyone has mounted their horses, let us practice walking slowly.
Eve, Rimi & Saaya: Okay.
Tomoe: Onward, Silver!
Saaya: Whoa... She's already galloping around...
Kaoru: Hahaha! Tomoe-chan, Silver! Don't wander off too far ahead!
Silver: Neigh!

Everyone, Right Now

Having returned from their horseback outing,
the girls chat about their respective bands.

Day One of Trip - Evening
 


Highlands - Villa
 

Rimi: Oh~... My whole body hurts~
Saaya: Same here~... Every muscle in my body is aching~.
Eve: But it was worth it, right? Trail riding was so much fun! The scenery was beautiful, and the wind on our faces felt great.
Tomoe: No kidding. Riding a horse with the wind blowing through your hair was the best.
Kaoru: Fufu, I am glad you all enjoyed yourselves.
Rimi: Yes. Towards the end, I really felt like I connected with my horse, which made me really happy.
Tomoe: Same. It was like Silver's heart and mine were one!
Kaoru: Yes, both you and the horses all seemed to enjoy themselves.
Eve: You really understand the emotions of those horses!
Kaoru: But of course I do. Every single one of them possesses only the purest of hearts. Their feelings can be felt just by looking them in the eyes.
Eve: Horses really do have pretty eyes, don't they? I'll have to try talking to them while staring into them next time♪
Kaoru: In any case, well done, everyone. Now let us go inside and relax.


Villa - Living Room
 

Rimi: That's right, I should send some pictures from today to my big sister~.
Saaya: How is Yuri-senpai anyway? She's overseas right now, isn't she?
Rimi: Yeah, and she's having lots of fun every day. We message each other often.
Saaya: Oh yeah? That's good.
... Ah, a message from Kasumi. "How's your trip going?"
Rimi: I'll have to send her pictures too. Ah, and while I'm at it, I'll send some to O-Tae-chan and Arisa-chan!
Saaya: Good idea! Although, it's not like we're not gonna see them after we get back. We have band practice after all.
Eve: Does Poppin'Party rehearse a lot during the summer?
Saaya: Yup. We've got plenty of time on our hands, so we try to meet whenever we can.
Rimi: Especially now that we're second-year students. We're all so busy. Plus Arisa-chan normally has student council work.
Tomoe: I'm sure all the bands are like that. Tsugu's busy being the Vice President of our student council.
Tomoe: That being said, we're all in the same class again, so it's actually easier for us to get together now.
Saaya: What about Hello, Happy World!?
Kaoru: Well... I don't think I've noticed any change. This year is just as... No, more magnificent than the last. Every day is a joy.
Tomoe: Haha, that sounds like Hello, Happy World!
Kaoru: Your praise is much appreciated... Now that I think about it, we don't have any members of Roselia here.
Tomoe: I invited Ako along, but she said she wants to practice. Evidently, they increase the number of rehearsals they have during summer vacation.
Kaoru: Even now, those dear girls are reaching for the top, their hearts set ablaze with passion... How fleeting...
Saaya: Yeah, they're working really hard to prepare for Future World Fes.
Rimi: What about Pastel*Palettes?
Eve: We're very busy as well! We all have to balance school, band, and our jobs as idols.
Saaya: That makes sense. You guys are super popular. Was it hard to open up your schedule for this trip?
Eve: I do have a lot of work and lessons going on, but the dates for this trip just happened to line up with my days off!
Eve: I'm so glad they did. Hearing about this wonderful villa from Kaoru-san really made me want to come!
Kaoru: Is it perhaps due to its similarities to the mokki of Finland?
Eve: Yes! I absolutely had to come after learning about this place!
Kaoru: And how are you finding our Japanese mokki? Is it to your liking?
Eve: Of course it is!
Saaya: That's great, Eve. In that case, we better make good use of your rare days off and have lots of fun tomorrow!
Eve: Yes!
Rimi: Yeah! So what are we doing tomorrow?
Tomoe: It seems like there's a lot we could do. Do you have any suggestions, Seta-senpai?
Kaoru: Indeed I do. Plenty in fact! For example, there's...
Eve: Hmm... What should I do...?

A Morning Stroll

A morning stroll develops into a conversation,
but Eve is still unsure of her plans for the day...

Summer Resort - Villa
 

Eve: Sigh...
Kaoru: Oh my. Good morning, Eve-chan. What are you doing here?
Eve: Good morning, Kaoru-san. Uhm... I was just watching the lake.
Kaoru: What a pleasant way to spend the dawn of a new day. May I join you?
Eve: Of course!
Sigh... It's so beautiful...
Kaoru: Sigh... So fleeting...


Ten Minutes Later
 

Eve & Kaoru: ...
Saaya: Ah, there they are. We were looking for you two.
Kaoru: Saaya-chan, Rimi-chan, Tomoe-chan! Good morning! Another magnificent, fleeting day awaits us!
Rimi: Good morning. You look wonderful today, Kaoru-san. As always.
Tomoe: We're trying to figure out what we want to do today. We all ended up going to bed last night before we decided.
Eve: Fufu, you're right. Horseback riding was so tiring. I slept so well!
Kaoru: Alright, then... Why don't we go for a stroll, enjoy this refreshing morning air, and discuss our plans?


Meadow
 

Kaoru: If possible, I'd like to go to the horseback riding club again today. However, it does not appear that will be possible for you all.
Saaya: Yeah, sorry, but I'm still sore all over...
Rimi: Me too...
Kaoru: Then why don't we make today our free day? Of course, if anyone would like to come with me to meet the horses, they are more than welcome to.
Tomoe: Really?! Then I'm joining you!
Kaoru: Haha, sounds like you've grown quite attached to Silver.
Tomoe: You bet! We finally got into our own little groove, so it'd be a shame to not go again.
Kaoru: I'm sure she's waiting for you as well. What will you do, Saaya-chan?
Saaya: Rimi-rin and I were talking about checking out the shopping area close by.
Rimi: We need to get souvenirs for our friends and families. Plus we heard there's a famous bakery there!
Saaya: Evidently, they fill their cornets with cream made from the milk of cows living in the highlands. I really want to check it out~.
Kaoru: An excellent idea. We can have my uncle send out any packages as well.
Rimi & Saaya: Thank you!
Kaoru: That just leaves you, Eve-chan. What will you be doing today?
Eve: Well... Let's see...
Rimi: Eek!
Tomoe: What's wrong?!
Rimi: A-a-a bug! There's a bug on me...!
Tomoe: Oh, are you okay? Hang on, I'll get it... Hm? Wait, this is a rhinoceros beetle!
Kaoru: I've heard there are a plethora of insects living here.
Tomoe: Whoa~! A bug this great is really hard to find~.
Rimi: T-Tomoe-chan, please, get it off of me~.
Tomoe: Ah, my bad! And... There.
I caught a rhinoceros beetle!
Saaya: Ahaha, someone's having fun.
Tomoe: Well, yeah! There might be even bigger bugs nearby!
Eve: Fufu. This place really is full of nature's beauty.
Kaoru: Oh my, it seems we got a little sidetracked. Anyway, what do you want to do, Eve-chan?
Eve: Uhm... I'm sorry. I haven't decided yet. Would it be alright for me to think about it a little while longer?
Kaoru: Of course. There is no rush. Feel free to consider all the possibilities while we explore the great outdoors.
Eve: I will. Thank you.
Rimi: Ah~! Another bug~!
Tomoe: Whoa, a stag beetle! And a male at that!
Saaya: The bugs sure love you today, Rimi-rin... Did you rub chocolate cornets on your clothes earlier?
Rimi: O-of course not~. Get rid of it!
Eve: Fufufu.
Kaoru: Hahaha.

Villa - Living Room
 

Saaya: Are you sure you'll be fine here all by yourself?
Eve: Yes, I'm just a little tired from yesterday... Don't worry about me!
Rimi: We'll bring you back a souvenir. Maybe a cream cornet!
Saaya: Ah, since we're doing different things during the day, we'll have a barbeque together tonight! Rimi-rin and I will shop for supplies while we're out.
Eve: I can't wait!
Kaoru: Rest your weary heart, Eve-chan. If you have need of anything at all, do not hesitate to contact us.
Eve: Thank you. Stay safe, everyone.
Tomoe: Yeah, I better do just that. I don't wanna fall and hurt myself while galloping around!
Eve: Fufu. Please tell Silver I say hello! See you later, everyone!


Horseback Riding Club
 

Kaoru: Phew... Even your trotting is perfect. You're a natural at this, Tomoe-chan.
Tomoe: Hehe, thanks! It's all because of your amazing teaching skills. And...
Silver: Snort!
Tomoe: It's mostly thanks to Silver here. She's just taking me along for the ride.
Kaoru: That realization itself is a mark of your talent. Many like to believe that they are always the ones in control.
Tomoe: We've really gotten close... It's a shame I'm never going to see Silver again after this trip.
Kaoru: ... The midsummer night's dream must end when we rise in the morning, but the memories and bonds we forge there remain.
Tomoe: ... Uh, I'm pretty sure it's day time.
Kaoru: No matter! The solution to your dilemma is simply to meet again. If you so desire, I would love to have you accompany me the next time I journey here.
Tomoe: Huh? Really?! Yeah, please let me know!
Kaoru: Excellent. I too am grateful to have gained a horseback riding companion.
Tomoe: Haha! Thanks! ...Did you hear that, Silver? We'll see each other again someday!
Silver: Neigh!


Villa - Living Room
 

Saaya: We're back~. Phew~, these are heavy! We sure bought a lot.
Rimi: Yeah, everything just looked so good. I can't wait for everyone to try them.
Saaya: Huh? Eve, are you here~?
Maybe she went for a walk?
Rimi: But her shoes are still here.
Saaya: She might be asleep then. I hope she's alright.
Eve: Ah, welcome back, you two~...
Rimi: Wah! Eve-chan, are you alright?! Your face is really red. Did you catch a cold?
Saaya: That's terrible. I'll see if I can find some medicine. For now, just go lay down and-
Eve: I-I'm fine~. This isn't from a cold... You see...
Saaya & Rimi: You were in the sauna?!
Eve: Yes... I really wanted to try it out... I'm sorry for worrying you.
Saaya: No, I'm just glad to know you're okay. Do you really like saunas that much?
Eve: I think they just bring back a lot of memories... It felt so good to be in one again!
Rimi: Really? I don't think I've ever used one before.
Eve: The saunas in mokkis are the best. Once you've heated up in the sauna, you go outside and feel the cool lake breeze, only to enter the sauna again... It's like an endless cycle!
Saaya: So it's kind of like eating something sweet after having something sour.
Rimi: If it's that enjoyable... I want to try it myself. What about you, Saaya-chan?
Saaya: Yeah, I'm curious too.
Eve: Well, I was just thinking about going back in. Would you like to join me?
Rimi: Sure! Let's go!
Saaya: But only for a little while. We still have to get everything ready for the barbeque tonight.
Eve: Okay, then off we go to warm ourselves in the sauna!

Saaya: Does everyone have a plate and something to drink? Alright, then... Cheers!
Rimi, Eve, Tomoe & Kaoru: Cheers!
Tomoe: Man, nothing beats barbequing under the stars!
Eve: Now let's get grilling!
Rimi: Wow... Look at all this meat! It looks so good...!
Saaya: This is all from your uncle, right, Kaoru-san? I really do appreciate how much he's doing for us.
Kaoru: Pay it no mind, my dear. My uncle does this out of the kindness of his own heart. All we need to do to pay him back is enjoy ourselves.
Saaya: Alright. Thank you so much!
Kaoru: It is I who should be thanking you. You were the ones to prepare everything, correct? You have my gratitude.
Saaya: Rimi-rin, Eve and I did it together, so it didn't take long at all.
Eve: You still cut the most vegetables though! Her knife skills were amazing! She cut them so fast, like chop, chop, chop!
Tomoe: Whoa. Guess that's what you can expect from the daughter of Yamabuki Bakery.
Saaya: That's got nothing to do with it. Besides, wasn't it harder getting all the barbeque equipment set up?
Rimi: You and Kaoru-san were the ones who lit the fire and everything. That's so cool... I don't think I could do that.
Tomoe: It's actually pretty easy. Grills nowadays really are something.
Kaoru: It seems our meat is ready. We should grab it before it burns.
Rimi: Yay, meat! Thank you~!
Saaya: Rimi-rin, this one is ready too. Here, Eve. Have some.
Eve: Thank you! The charcoal smells so good... Oh, we should grill some rice balls later!
Tomoe: Great idea!
... Ah, the fire's getting a little too hot. I better cool it off.
Saaya: Toasting marshmallows would be fun too, wouldn't it? Too bad we didn't buy any~.
Rimi: If you want something sweet, we've got baked goods... Maybe we can toast those. It might make them even more delicious.
Kaoru: ... Fufu.
Saaya: Huh? Aren't you hungry, Kaoru-san? Here, have some meat.
Kaoru: Thank you, my dear. I was merely... taking in this fleeting scenery. Our marvelous time here is coming to a close.
Eve: That's right, we're going back home tomorrow afternoon. That's... a little sad to think about.
Rimi: That was fast, wasn't it? I wonder why all the good times fly by so quickly.
Saaya: Summer vacation's going to be over in a flash too. Soon we'll be back to our hectic schedules.
Eve: Yes...
Tomoe: ... Come on, why are we talking about something so awful?! It just means we have to have fun while we can!
Tomoe: Once we get back home, we've still got some summer vacation left! We should enjoy it!
Eve: Enjoy it, huh...?
Saaya: Fufu, that's right. Summer vacation only comes once a year after all. We should be out there making memories.
Rimi: We should hang out again once we get back home! ... Ah, but first I need to finish my homework~. I've still got a lot left to do.
Saaya: Fufu, yeah, I'm sure Kasumi's the same way.
Tomoe: Ako tends to wait until the last minute too. I better remind her to work on it later.
Saaya: Yeah. If we really want to have the best summer possible, we need to accomplish everything we planned for summer. That includes homework.
Eve: You're right! We should do everything we want to do while we still can!
Rimi: Eve-chan?
Kaoru: Actually... Eve-chan, have you accomplished all that you wished to do here?
Eve: Huh?
Saaya: I was wondering that too. I never really heard you talk about what you wanted to do.
Tomoe: You don't need to hold back like that.
Rimi: Why don't you tell us what it is you want to do?
Eve: Everyone... I'm sorry for worrying you... As for what I want to do... It's hard to explain...
Kaoru: You need not fret, my dear. Simply tell us what you're feeling, and we will listen.
Eve: It really is nothing special, but...

Last Day of Trip - Morning
 


Highlands - Villa
 

Eve: ...
Rimi, Saaya & Tomoe: ...
Kaoru: ... As we silently take in the morning air, I cannot help but think... How fleeting...
Saaya: Kaoru-san.
Kaoru: Oh dear, my apologies.
Eve: ...
Rimi, Saaya & Kaoru: ...
Tomoe: ... Ah, that's a big mantis.
Rimi: Eep! Wh-where?
Saaya: You two, stop.
Rimi: Ah, s-sorry.
Tomoe: Right... Go on, mantis, shoo.
Eve, Rimi, Tomoe & Kaoru: ...
Saaya: ... Fufu.
Rimi: Ah, Saaya-chan, you laughed!
Tomoe: You're out!
Saaya: S-sorry! This is just so funny, that's all.
Tomoe: I know! Being quiet and doing nothing is actually pretty hard!
Rimi: Uhm... Is this really what you wanted to do, Eve-chan?
Eve: Uhm, well, not exactly, but... Fufufu, this was still an entertaining way to pass the time.
Eve: I know I said "I don't want to do anything but enjoy the peace and quiet," but that doesn't mean we can't talk!
Kaoru: I'm still shocked that the thing you wanted to do more than anything else was... nothing.
Eve: Yes... This place reminds me so much of Finland, so I wanted to spend the day here the same way I would in Finland.
Tomoe: Does everyone sit around and relax like this there?
Eve: I don't really know how to explain it... You see, summer vacation in Finland is very long.
Rimi: Really? That sounds amazing~.
Eve: Winters there are very long and harsh, so maybe it was done so we could get the most out of the nice weather.
Eve: So when I would go to the mokkis in summer, I never really had a set schedule of things to do.
Eve: If the weather was good, I'd sunbathe or swim in the lake. Once I was tired from playing, I'd go to my room and read...
Tomoe: Wow, that all sounds good.
Eve: Yes. And looking back on that, all that time I had really was a luxury.
Saaya: I think I know what you mean. I'm always worried that I'm not using my time efficiently. I have to be doing something, or else I feel like I'm wasting the day.
Tomoe: Yeah, even with this trip, I wanted to do a whole bunch of stuff to take advantage of it.
Rimi: That's just how vacations are, though. You want to do all the stuff you can only do at your destination.
Eve: And I think that's a great way to think. Vacations in Japan are so short, and so is the time you have to spend with those you care about.
Eve: Which is why we tend to fill those times with lots and lots of activities.
Eve: There isn't a right way to spend your vacation. It just depends on how people live their lives.
Eve: ... Ah, I'm sorry. I suppose I'm not making much sense anymore!
Kaoru: Hmm... In other words, you wanted to experience those long summers you had in Finland again, correct?
Eve: Yes... Does that make sense?
Tomoe: For sure. To be honest, the way you spend summer there sounds pretty interesting.
Saaya: And it's probably important to have days like this every once in a while. Once we're home, we're back to our busy schedules.
Rimi: Yeah, so if you think about it, doing nothing but relaxing really is something we can only do while we're here!
Eve: I'm so glad you feel the same way...!
Kaoru: I'm glad you got your wish, Eve-chan... Now then, shall we begin our Japanese mokki experience?! Let the relaxation commence!
Rimi: Kaoru-san...! Yeah!
Saaya: Fufu, never change, Kaoru-san.
Tomoe: Ahaha, no kidding.
Kaoru: Oh my, did you enjoy that, my little kittens? Well, then...
Saaya: You don't have to do it again!
Rimi: Aww~, but I want to hear it~. One more time, Kaoru-san.
Tomoe: Jeez... We're not gonna get any relaxing done at this rate. Haha.
Eve: That's true, but... Fufu... That's fine. Times like this are a luxury in and of themselves!
