Noami's eyes widened in horror and leaped in after the bottle. Murky water surrounded her, but she willed her eyes to stay open and search for the pink bottle. A splash resounded beside her just as she found the bottle. Enclosing her fingers around the bottle just as another fingers mirrored her movement, she swam upwards, taking a intake of fresh air. She blinked and stared into honey-brown eyes, a face too close to her own. Pink dusted her face, and she backed away. Kashino, having similar thoughts, slipped his fingers away from the bottle and moved back, his own cheek coloring itself red. "Are you two alright?" Hanabusa asked, and he was rewarded with killing glares. "Gee, I don't know. I just jumped into a dirty pond in middle of winter." Noami scowled as Andou helped her out. "Of course I'm fine."
