"I don't know myself. Maybe something is amiss if there are only the two of us? Or maybe Sachiko-sama would like to have a more boisterous trip? But then, why didn't Sachiko-sama invite her own classmates? I don't mind at all if Sachiko-sama's friends are there. Actually I would like to befriend with them in the first place.

Therefore Yumi felt something strange about this invitation, which turned out as if "there is a company resort around, so bring your friends along!"
"I don't get it."
Yoshino shot two whys to press for an answer.
Yumi thought back. In the New Year at the Ogasawaras' residence, it was pretty fun with Sei-sama.

Maybe Sachiko-sama even found it fun to have everyone together doing something exciting, Yumi thought recently.
