When I Returned From Another World I Was A Silver Haired Shrine Maiden: Chapter 37
Swim Class (Part 1)
The next day, I was feeling somewhat sick in the morning.
Even with my alarm clock ringing, I was finding it really hard to get up, eventually I was forcibly awakened by the combined efforts of Alicia along with Yuna who had come into my room.
The reason for this is probably because yesterday I had stayed up a little late last night while reading the continuation of a web novel, I’m so sleepy.
My head also feels a little sore.
… Has my fatigue accumulated? My school life has been full of activity after all.
I quickly eat my breakfast, then do my morning preparations in the washroom.
I think that my ability to prepare my appearance has greatly improved… I wonder if I’ve become accustomed to living as a girl.
Yuna entered the washroom as I was thinking such a thing.
「Alice, do you have everything prepared for today’s physical education?」
「Eh? … I’ve already prepared my gym uniform?」
「So you aren’t aware of it. That today’s physical education is in the pool? The school told us that in September we start swimming lessons.」
「So it’s the pool… Wait, the pool!?」
「You should have already been told this… You bought the school designated swimsuit, right?」
「Ye, yeah… I did.」
When we were buying school supplies we also purchased a set of swimwear as well. However, I didn’t want to think about my appearance while wearing a school swimsuit, so it has sat untouched in the back of my drawers.
「You bought a swimsuit, swim cap and undershorts right? … Okay, take this bath towel and face towel and put your swim bag together. 」
I received the two towels from Yuna.
「You really should have practiced wearing everything beforehand, mou, but we don’t have time for that… Come on, you’re going to be late at this rate!」
I quickly returned to my room and threw on my uniform.
After that, I packed all the items I will need for swim class from my drawers into the swim bag.
Standing in front of the full length mirror, I make sure to smooth out the crinkles in my skirt and fix the ribbon on my chest, I was quickly running out of time.
「Alice! We won’t make it in time if we don’t go now!」
I run down the stairs and head towards the door. Quickly putting on a pair of low-heeled shoes, I ran out of the entrance along with Yuna.
「「See you later!」」
Uu, why did I oversleep on such a day. Both Alicia and Yuna, I wish you had woken me up earlier!
※ ※ ※
Physical education was the fourth period before lunch break, to me, that was a blessing in disguise.
It seems that taking off a swimsuit takes a lot longer than putting one on, I’m thankful that I will be able to take my time to change without worrying about being late for the following class.
However, I will be joining all the other girls when we go to get changed into our swimsuits…
Since I have started living in Alicia’s body, my knowledge and experience of a woman’s body has increased considerably.
However, in terms of seeing a woman naked, I have only ever seen myself and Yuna — It’s only been my family members.
Seeing the nakedness of my female classmates, who I interact with everyday, has a very different meaning.
As such, I spent the entirety of my morning classes in agony.
Even when I talk with the girls in my class during homeroom and recess, when I think about us changing clothes together after this, I couldn’t interact with them like normal, it’s awkward.
As Yuna is the only one who knows my circumstances, she gives me a look that seems to say 「It can’t be helped」.
In addition to the headache from this morning, I also started to feel a pain in my stomach due to the anxiety, my feeling became heavy.
During third period, I couldn’t stand it anymore and talked to Yuna using telepathy.
『… Hey, Yuna, what should I do?』
『Even if you ask me that… Can’t you just act like you normally do?』
『I’m coming to you for consultation because I can’t act normally. Wouldn’t you hate being seen changing clothes by a man?』
『It would be unpleasant, However, you are Kisaragi Alice, a genuine girl, so there isn’t any problem.』
『But, the contents are that of a high school boy, I feel like I would be cheating my classmates…』
『We have already determined that such a thing is necessary. What are you saying after such a long time… So, take responsibility for it until the end. That way, no one will be hurt by it.』
『Deceiving people… that’s true. Such a thing is normal at this point.』
『… I don’t think that you need to think about it so much. Aren’t you lucky to be able to look at everyone like this?』
『W, well, that is true…』
『In any case, you will have plenty of opportunities to see the nakedness of people of the same gender from now on. It’s only the first few times that it will feel strange.』
『I wonder if that’s the case…?』
『That’s how it is.』
Seeing Yuna talk about it so naturally, I started to feel better about the situation.
As our conversation ends, the bell signaling the end of third period goes off, it seems I will be stepping into the forbidden sanctuary known as the girls locker room next to the pool.
