Hammer Mermaid Chapter 07
Now that's what I call perfect weather for camping.
Yeah and the air's so fresh!
(Memories of the past...)
It's good to let the kids play in the nature.
I'm sure it'll become a good memory for Keiichi-kun and Shizuku. // I'm glad we're neighbours and the kids are close in age!
And we adults get to enjoy a beer in the nature.
Geez! That's all you think about!
But you also were quite eager, right, Keiichi?
Yeah! Camping is fun!
Our girl was making a big fuss too because she was happy to get to be with Keiichi-kun.
Don't say unnecessary stuff, mom!!
(The stuffed animal in little Shizuku's arms is...?)
Chapter 07: Resurfacing
Fufu... You're so precocious.
Mizushima-san, shall we set up the tent under the tree there?
Sure. // Okada-san, can you help?
Then we'll set up the barbeque?
I'll go cut the vegetables.
Hey, dear! // You already opened one?
Keiichi, Shizuku-chan! // Don't go too far away!
You're always carrying that stuffed animal with you.
Yeah! // It's called U-tan!
It's my best friend.
I like Kei-chan even more!
Hey, // we can cross over here!
Be careful, Shizuku-chan!
Come over, Kei-chan!
Shizuku-chan! Grab onto me!
You're safe now.
It's Shizuku-chan's important friend...
I need to save it...
A kid fell into the river!
Kei-chan was saved by the adults at the camping site...
I heard he lost consciousness,
but still was holding on the stuffed animal...
He was in critical condition for a while
but he regained consciousness after a few days...
I was... happy, // but wanted to apologize.
So I went to visit him...
Kei-chan, // thank you...
And I'm sorry too...
Eh...!? // Who are you...?
What's up, Kei-chan..?
Here, U-tan says thanks too.
Stop... // I'm scared...!
Keiichi-kun doesn't remember the incident at all. // I guess the fear from nearly drowning was so big that he sealed his memories to protect himself from it.
But...His fear of water remains.
So he lost all memories of the incident and the girl, who was the cause of it..
which at the same time resulted in them becoming the object of his fear...
I couldn't see Kei-chan any longer because I was scared of seeing // his pained face.
And due to my parent's work, we moved to the next city, thus growing away from each other...
But here at Realo I met him again. // Though he had forgotten all about me.
And I was wondering that he might remember me again if he heals his fear of water...
Are you crying...?
I have a soft spot for such stories!
Okay! I get the situation!
If it's like that, I'll give you my support!
But, I... did some really rude thing to him... // I think he already hates me now...
Not sure what you did, but just leave it to me!
you're so kind.
You only noticed now?
Good work! // You can go now, Okada-san, Kawakita-san!
I'm going to Realo now.. // You coming too, Keiichi?
I don't mind giving you a ride there,
but you have to go home alone later.
Because I'll leave immediately.
I'm... thinking of quitting there.
Huh? // Why?
...It doesn't look like I can overcome my fear of water. // Besides... It got a bit awkward between Mizushima-san and me...
What are you mumbling about!!
W- What are you...
Being in the slumps is not like you, Keiichi!
Listen, this will be our last time.
So I'll give you a real good time.
Then you can give your best again...!!
Hey, hey.... You're going all out right off the bat...
Of course. It's our last time, so it better be the best.
Hah... // Hah...
You're not satisfied with just that, // right Keiichi?
You're still good
Good... That's more like you.
Saeri... // Today, you're specially great...
You're sucking on me so hard...
Because you're thrusting in so hard. // My body is just responding to that.
And because it's the last time.. // I have to give it my all as to not leave behind any regrets...
you have someone else's you want to get serious with...
Keep thrusting, Keiichi..
I'm about to come...
What's up with her so suddenly...
I don't get it.
(Okada Keiichi revives!!)
You want me to work hard once more, right?
I don't know why you would want that,
but giving up half-way is just lame.
Like I thought.
You're a good man.
