wouldn't I love to explore that shore above?【 for [personal profile] dontlosehope



[They had been dating for about three months. With every month that passed by, Asahina made sure to make a note in the palm of her hand. But no matter how many times she's written it in her hand (and She might have also traced their names into her hand too. Oops.), she couldn't believe that it had already been three months. Time flew by and it felt like just yesterday they confessed their feelings for each other and started dating. Time flies whenever she's with him, but that just shows how much fun she has whenever they are together.

There was no doubt in her mind, these were by far the best three months of her life and she was only going to continue to cherish every single time they would spend with each other.

Luckily for the pair, Hope's Peak had let the students take a quick weekend break to refresh their minds after finishing up exams. Asahina's dream date had always been to go to the beach, but it had been too cold to go splash around in the waters. Now that they were free and that summertime was finally here, Asahina wasted no time in asking Naegi out on a date to the beach.

The sun was shining, the white sands stretched out for miles and the ocean waves were like a melody to the swimmer girl's ears when they finally reached their destination.]


Makoto, we are here!!

[Even if the expression on her face looked a bit intense, she was so excited that she could hardly even contain herself.]

We're at the beach! Can you believe it? We're at the beach!!

[She points towards the ocean.]

The beach!!!

Ah.... a long, long time. [His expression turns to a sheepish smile.]

I thought you'd say that. [And really, a swim was the best thing to do first. He had Asahina to thank for how well he could swim now. He definitely wasn't the best - but before she was able to help him, he was like a fish floundering on dry land.]

Isn't that superstition? [He pauses.] ... Well, I guess swimming on a full stomach might make you sick, anyway.

[He's definitely ready if Asahina is!]

[He couldn't help laughing a little and rubbing the back of his neck. He... really didn't need to say anything about that, did he?]

That's true. Better to eat after than before.

[As for stretches... well, it was pretty well known that Naegi wasn't very good at a lot of things. Stretching before a swim was one of them. But like with swimming, he got better at it with Asahina's help. He bent down a little and stretched his legs... as much as he could, anyway. And then his arms, and then his shoulders. Ow, that was a muscle popping.

Soon enough, he was done, and ready to go.]
I'm ready when you are!

[He nodded and walked into the shallows and deeper soon after she had. He took a few deep breaths as he did; swimming in a pool was one thing... swimming in the ocean was another. But he's ready for this. He's ready to show off how much he's gotten better.

And, after he gets far enough... he starts floating. He's easily keeping himself afloat with no issues, and eventually dives under to swim towards his girlfriend, managing to perform something of a forward stroke with minimal issue. Though it takes him a little bit, since he still doesn't have that much strength behind his arms, he still makes it over to her with a grin on his face as he surfaces to face her.]


How'd I do? [The water did feel amazing, he couldn't lie. It was a feeling he hadn't expected, after being so used to the school pool. It was warmer, it was... well, saltier. But it felt really, really nice.]

[He gently squeezes her hand as she takes his, laughing a little as he's poked in the chest.]

A-A bit, I guess. [He couldn't help blushing as he said that. A bit? Try a lot, if he were being totally honest. He'd wanted to be able to at least show he could swim like a decent person -- he knew that she would love to see that. And even he was surprised with how much he had improved in the past month or two alone!

But he knows she could see through his modesty, and he rubs the back of his neck with his own free hand.]
Just in my spare time. Usually while you were gone to meets.

[Truthfully it was also a way for him to feel like he was with her even when he couldn't go with her to them. He gladly went with her to all of her competitive events and cheered her on, becoming her moral support from the benches. But when it came to meets, he wasn't supposed to really go if it was away from the school -- so it made it an easier choice for him to take to the school pool, whether anyone else was there or not.

He gently takes her other hand in his.]


Besides, I had the best coach. You.
