Chapter 7.5 Omake

"Gather around, we'll be starting this swimming lesson soon!"

It felt like ages since I had my last swimming lesson in middle school... This would be my first one in high school, and it would also be my first time wearing this new school swimsuit. I gulped nervously and adjusted it as I stepped out of the girls' changing room. It felt a little tight around the chest...

Kyrius was already standing there in black thigh-length swimming trunks... and nothing else... I couldn't help eyeballing his well-toned, athletic body. Already the chatter was picking up among the girls - none of us had ever seen the guys dressed like this before after all!

"He... Hey... Kyrius... How... How do I... I look?" I stammered as I approached him, folding my arms around my chest. My cheeks were probably hot enough to fry an egg...

Phoenicia and Inoha snickered behind me. Aida just stared at me with his jaw wide open.

"As elegant as ever," the class representative replied unabashedly with a sweet smile on his face.

...

"Yuki?"

...

"I think you broke her, Kyrius."

"Huh? I didn't say anything... Are you alright, Yuki?"

Suddenly I felt a warm hand against my forehead that jerked me out of my stupor. I found myself staring into Kyrius's entrancing crimson red eyes... while he clapped a hand to my forehead...

"Well, you certainly don't have a fever..." he mused aloud.

...

I felt my blush creep down to my neck even as I squeaked, "Uwaaah!" and roughly jerked backwards...

My right foot didn't encounter the resistance I had expected. Instead it found the very edge of the pool, and I flailed wildly as I stumbled and began to fall backwards right towards the water...

"Yuki!" Kyrius immediately reacted and grabbed my hand before I fell. Unfortunately he didn't have enough leverage or stability, and he lost his balance just like I did, only to be dragged off his feet.

A cold splash greeted me as I fell into the pool.

I began panicking almost instantly - I hadn't had the time to take a breath of air before falling in so I was now inhaling water... But a pair of strong arms closed around me and pulled me up to the surface. I spluttered as I broke the surface of the water and coughed out some water...

That was not fun...

"Yuki! Are you okay?" Kyrius's voice sounded distant, but at least I knew I was still okay...

"I... I'm fine..." I gasped as I tipped water out of my ears.

"Whew..." he breathed... then paused abruptly.

It was right then that I felt warm weights on my chest. A squeeze. I let out a squeak in surprise as the squeeze came again.

...

"Uh, ooops?" Kyrius blanched in horror.

"Kyrius..." I blushed violently... "Can... can you please... let go of my breasts...?"

Kyrius recoiled as if stung by a bee and quickly released me from his hold. We were quickly joined in the pool by our other friends - Phoenicia and Inoha quickly dragged me aside to check for injuries, and were relieved to find none. However, by the devious looks on their faces I knew that wasn't the only reason...

"We saw the whole thing, Yuki-chan..." Inoha began.

"Did you enjoy it?" Phoenicia added with a glint in her eyes.

"You... You two! Stop that!" I squeaked, thoroughly embarrassed... "Uuuuu..."
