as hell freezes over.
Sticky sweet living rooms
At least I no longer
pray in the bottom of swimming pools.
At least I no longer
toy with the idea
of racing trains on the track.
The year is melting away,
and I keep

Rei: Warming the entire body to the core ameliorates blood flow, stimulates perspiration, and helps recovering from fatigue. Not to mention, it helps improving the operating of the circulatory system! Rin: Swimming is a sports that taxes a lot on circulatory organs, too. Care is crucial. Makoto: Rei and Rin, you both sure know a lot! Haruka: (bubbling) Makoto: Haru, isn’t it chilly to stay in the cold water bath like that? Come over here. Haruka: I’m fine. I like cold water. Makoto: You should come this side later to properly warm yourself, okay? Hey, Haru, are you listening? Rin: That Haru… There’s no point coming to a bath-house if you’re just going to stay in the cold water… Makoto: Well, that’s what you’d expect from Haru. But really, it’s nice how you can actually stretch your legs here. There’s no room for that at home… Nagisa: (splashes water) Yup, yup! A big bath is fun, right! Plus we reserved it, so we can swim around all we want! (swims arounds) Rin: Ah! …Nagisa… Rei: Hey, Nagisa-kun, stop this! Nagisa: Ah! Hehe, sorry… Rin: You little… Don’t splash around with your feet right in front of people’s face, you damn–! Nagisa: Aah, it hurts it hurts it hurts, Rin-chan, don’t grab my head– Rin: Shut up! Take your bath quietly, okay?! Nagisa: I don’t want to! Rei: Hey, you two! Don’t fight in such a place! And you’re splashing water on my face too! Makoto: Ah geez, just soak normally… Nagisa: Hufufufu… Ma-ko-chan! (splashes him) Makoto: Ah! Geez… Nagisa! Rei: Ah, even Makoto-senpai now?! Everyone, calm down– Haruka: [evil demon lord aura] Rei: [faint shriek] Haruka: Use the water quietly. Makoto: …Sorry. Nagisa: Yeees. Rin: This is just bathwater, though– Makoto: Aah, now now Rin!
Nagisa: Aah… I’m all warmed up… Rei: Although, this… Isn’t this water a bit too hot? Rin: What’s up, Rei? Are you not good with hot baths? Careful not to get light-headed. Rei: I won’t! Nagisa: You’re not hot, Rin-chan? Rin: The dorm’s bath is rather hot so I got used to it. Plus, captain Mikoshiba… Ah, no, forget it… Rei: Oh my, Rin-san. Your face seems somewhat flushed… Shouldn’t you get out already? Rin: Aren’t you confident! Nagisa: Heheh, then, how about a contest? Of who can stay in the longest! Rin: Okay, sure! I’ll take you on! Nagisa: That’s our Rin-chan! Rin: You guys are competing too, right? Makoto, Rei. Makoto: Eh, me too? Rei: Very well! I accept this challenge! Nagisa: What about you, Haru-chan? Haruka: (bubbling) Nagisa: Haru-chan doesn’t want to leave the cold water bath, huh. Makoto: Hey, Haru, are you sure you’ll be okay? Haruka: (still bubbling) I’m fine. Rin: Makoto, just forget about Haru. Nagisa: Then, start! Ah, and the loser has to treat the others to fruit milk, okay. Rin: Although there’s no way I’ll lose. I’ll show you the endurance I built in the dorm’s bath! Rei: The fight is on! I shall remain until the very end! Makoto: Eeh, but I want to get out already… Nagisa: Come on Mako-chan, if you’re not in up to at least your shoulders, you’ll be disqualified! Makoto: Huh… That’s strict… Haruka: (blubbling) [thinking] Ah… What a noisy bunch.
