Just a question: do you want stories that involve anime characters in their summer vacation again? Or can we also submit original stories or stories involving other things outside of anime like characters from video games?

A Day Off at Wagnaria!!!


Souta Takanashi stood there, sweat dripping off of his face, not just because of the intense heat of the summer sun beating down on him and intensified by the sand under his feet but also because his co-worker Mahiru Inami was currently standing within arms reach in front of him, her fists shaking while mumbling under her breath.

Oh god I am going to die here is all Takanashi could think as Inami slowly raised her fist breathing heavily.

“I’m sorry, Takanashi-kun!” and with that her fist flied out like a rocket hitting him square on the jaw sending him reeling.

What did I do to deserve this… slowly Takanashi’s vision blacked as a frantically flailing Inami faded from his view.

It was two days ago. It was a completely normal day for Takanashi as he left his home heading for work. He thought he could make it through the day as just any other day would have been. That was at least until he arrived at work. Standing outside of the small family restaurant was all of his coworkers. Including a plethora of flashing lights from firetrucks, ambulances, and cop cars. He rushed over to the group in a panic.

“What in the world happened?!” Takanashi yelled out as he looked over the group.

Kyouko Shirafuji, his manager, turned around covered in black soot, “Well you see Takanashi-kun… apparently I should not be cooking in the kitchen.”

Takanashi’s jaw dropped, “Huh…?”

“Well you see… I was hungry and no one but me had arrived yet. So I thought I would just whip something up instead of waiting for Satou.” Kyouko nodded as if nothing was wrong.

Sighing Takanashi looked at Kyouko, “So. This is all your fault.”

Kyouko stared blankly at Takanashi, “Hmm… so we are out of work for a couple of days. We should all go to the beach.” She said choosing to ignore him.

Before Takanashi could say anything else Todoroki and Souma both cried out saying it was a great idea. Souma ended up pressuring, or more like blackmailing, Satou into going as well. Yamada was dancing around cheering and asking about Otoo-san. By the time things cleared up for Takanashi to even talk everyone had begun leaving. He sighed again giving up realizing he might as well go.

So two days passed and he was on a bus heading to some beach with all his coworkers. The girls crowded the back of the bus while the guys sat a few seats ahead of them. Takanashi stared back at the group of girls as they talked and giggled.

Souma noticed and smiled lightly, “Something wrong Takanashi-kun?”

Takanashi raised an eyebrow, “Is this exactly… well safe?”

“What do you mean?” Souma’s voice clearly feigned ignorance.

“With Inami-san of course.” Takanashi continued staring at the group of girls, “Sure she seems to be punching guys… well me… less lately but I doubt she has been cured of her phobia.”

Souma put a hand on his face, “Hmm… you’re right… well that is what one reason why we have you here Takanashi-kun!”

Takanashi glared at Souma but didn’t say anything else as he turned around and faced forward. Finally they had arrived at the beach which was pretty busy despite being a weekday. Takanashi shielded his eyes with his hands.

“Hopefully we can find a spot.” He said looking around.

After some searching they found a good spot that they could all fit at and while the girls left to go change the guys got everything set up. Takanashi stood there in his swimsuit after he had helped finished getting everything ready and began stretching. When he heard footsteps behind him he turned around and nearly choked at the sight.

B…B….Bikini?! his face ended up betraying his thoughts.

In front of him his cherished and cute sempai was currently wearing a two piece swimsuit. As well as Inami and Kyouko. Meanwhile Yamada and Todoroki were wearing one-piece swimsuits. Taneshima walked up to Takanashi.

“Katanashi-kun! What do you think?” she said holding out her arms from her sides.

“Of course you look cute, Sempai!” Takanashi replied with a thumbs up.

Taneshima beamed a smile as she went to one of the towels. Kyouko had already disappeared while Todoroki was talking quietly to Satou with a smile. Yamada was running around animatedly grabbing various toys. Meanwhile Inami quietly walked up to Takanashi herself.

“Ta…Ta…Takanashi-kun.” She timidly held her arms in front of her chest as she talked, “Wh…what do y…you think?”

Takanashi coughed, “Y…yeah, yeah, you look good.” He tried to sound monotone but he could have sworn his voice just broke and his face felt like it was on fire.

Inami turned beet red as her gaze fell to the sand, “G…good…”

What followed that was any typical day at the beach with a group of friends. They all played in the water or sand, ate food from the nearby beach restaurant, had a round of beach volleyball, and all bathed in the warm sunlight. Near the end of the day as the sun was beginning to dip towards the horizon Satou and Todoroki stood up and left the group, slowly walking down the beach, and Yamada stared at them.

“I wonder what Satou-san and Yachiyo-san are talking about,” She stared at them intently before jumping to her feet, “Yamada will find out!”

Before she could run off though Souma grabbed her arm, “Yamada-san! How about you and I go look at the nearby shops before they close?”

Yamada turned around her eyes sparkling, “Really?!”

Souma nodded and turned to Taneshima, “Taneshima-san?”

Taneshima jumped to her feet, “Sure!”

Inami began to get up but Takanashi stopped her, “Not you. What if you punch some innocent guy walking by?”

She was about to say something but then she saw a motion out of the corner of her eye and saw Taneshima and Souma both give her a thumbs up as they walked off. She turned beet red and held onto the frills of her swimsuit.

“Hmm? Where did everyone go?” a voice from behind them called out.

“Manager…” Takanashi sighed, “Well… Souma just left with Yamada and Sempai. Satou and Todoroki seem to be taking a walk.”

Kyouko looked down the beach, “Hmm…” she scratched the back of her head, “Well I’ll be back in a bit as well then.”

“I can’t believe her.” Takanashi said as Kyouko walked off, “She’s been gone nearly all day.”

Inami forced a chuckle, “Except for when we went to go eat.”

Takanashi sighed and sat down staring out towards the setting sun. Inami gulped as her anxiety built up. Clenching her fists she finally was able to stammer out, “Ta…Takanashi-kun! Wo…Would you like… t…to go on a walk?”

At first Takanashi stared at her incredulously but then saw her beet red face and began turning red himself, “Sure.”

So they walked down the beach, though in the opposite direction Sato and Todoroki went, at a distance from each other. Both of them were beet red the entire time as they walked until after a few minutes of walking they reached the end of the beach and only rocks were in their way. Inami stared at the rocks in dismay as she realized she hadn’t worked up any courage to even talk to Takanashi on their short walk. Then she felt something crawl over her foot and she jumped yelling out.

“What?!” Takanashi could barely react as Inami flung herself towards him.

“Something touched my foot!!!” Inami cried as she clung onto Takanashi’s arm.

Looking down at the sand Takanashi saw a small crab skitter away, “You’re fine Inami-san. It was just a little crab.”

Inami peeked open her eyes, “R…really?”

“Yup.” Takanashi sighed.

Inami also sighed in relief. But then her mind started clicking gears. She realized she was holding onto Takanashi and she began to breathe heavily and mumble. That was when Takanashi also realized the danger and he backed off slowly holding up his hands.

“I…Inami-san…” he said in a scared voice.

“I…I’m sorry, Takanashi-kun!!” she said as her fist flew like a rocket towards his face and his vision blacked.

When his vision began to return he came in fuzzy, probably because he wasn’t wearing his glasses now, and all he could see was red. Slowly but surely though his vision started picking out details and becoming clearer and apparently he was wearing his glasses because as they became clearer he realized he wouldn’t be able to make out these details without them.

Details like the beet red face of Inami only about a foot above his. Her red hair moving slightly to the light breeze. The frills from her swimsuit brushing against his face. Then it dawned on him what position he was in and he quickly got up.

“Takanashi-kun! Are you okay?!” Inami was practically crying even though her face was still beet red from her embarrassment.

“Ah… y…yeah.” Takanashi mumbled out, hiding his own embarrassment, “We should head back soon.”

As Takanashi began to walk away Inami grabbed his hand stopping him in his tracks. He turned to face her, her face probably the reddest it had been all day, with an eyebrow raised.

“I…Inami-san?” his voice cracked, under embarrassment or fear he wasn’t sure.

Inami planted both of her hands on each of his shoulders. Takanashi began sweating profusely wondering what was about to happen. His eyes darted every which way in fear while his cheeks burned.

Slowly Inami inched herself up while lightly pulling Takanashi down to her and firmly kissed his lips. After holding the kiss for what seemed like an eternity she parted from him.

“Takanashi-kun…. I… love you. I love you so much.” Inami refused to look up towards him, “But I know you like Taneshima-san… so… I’m sorry…”

With that Inami ran off while Takanashi stood there dumbfounded. By the time he finally began moving and made his way back the others had already packed everything up and hurried him to join the group to make the last bus. The entire time Inami had ignored him as they packed their things and joined the group just as the last bus arrived. Getting on the bus Takanashi looked at Inami who had sat by herself at a window seat with confused looks from Yamada and Taneshima who sat behind her. Takanashi looked away thinking internally until he nodded and walked to take a seat.

Inami was startled as Takanashi sat next to her, “Ta…Takanashi-kun…?”

Wordlessly Takanashi grabbed Inami’s hand and squeezed it while he looked away, his face a bright red that spread from ear to ear. It clicked with Inami what it mean as she squeezed his hand back her face staring towards the floor and equally as red. Taneshima and Yamada who stared at them from the seat behind them grinned and sat back down. Meanwhile near the front of the bus Kyouko stared at the back of bus where everyone else was.

Sighing she scratched the back of her head, “Scheduling these kids hours is going to be a pain.”

You can write about what you want, preferably containing anime characters since that is what we are familiar with, but you have free reign to write about what you want and what characters you want to create or use
