Business is Booming
Sarasa’s sales seem to be going extremely well, she is getting a lot of customers for her cooling hats, and business is booming. Besides the items she is selling, she is also getting requests for ingredients, which is great for her business and her wish to help the villagers!
What Lorea Wants, Lorea Gets
Kate and Iris arrive with great news about a valuable ingredient. Supposedly they can gather marsen clams near Yok Village, but Sarasa doesn’t seem very enthusiastic about it, as apparently, the only ingredient that can be used for alchemy is a small bit of the female clam, and it’s hard for amateurs to tell the females and males apart, so she doesn’t recommend it…. Kate and Iris were already so interested in gathering them so they could help pay their debts! But Lorea expresses her wish to have some marsen clams for a recipe, and what Lorea gets, Lorea wants!
The group goes to gather the clams for Lorea, and Sarasa even temporarily closes the shop for it. She is looking for a refreshing day for the other girls since they always help with the shop.
As they walk through the forest, monsters start showing up, scaring our sweet Lorea but are immediately dealt with by the rest, everything to protect Lorea!
They arrive at the lake, but before they get to work, they have to eat first to replenish their energy, so they eat the food that Lorea prepared for them.
Time To Catch Some Clams
Kate and Iris dive into the lake to gather the clams, easily finding a bunch right away, while Lora and Sarasa cheer for them. A small animal took a liking to Sarasa, eating Lorea’s food with them and taking a nap on her lap.
Seeing Kate and Iris having fun swimming around the lake, Sarasa and Lorea decide to take off their clothes and go for a swim as well, even though Lorea doesn’t know how to swim, Sarasa teaches her, and even gives her a board she made in case Kate and Iris got in trouble!
Seeing how Lorea keeps trying to learn how to swim, Sarasa feels like she admires her a lot, for how she never gives up and always gives her all. From when she started cooking and the recipes didn’t turn out how she wanted them to but still kept trying, to how now she doesn’t give up on trying to learn how to swim. When she becomes confident enough, she attempts to swim to Sarasa without the board, making her extra proud!
Sarasa tells her they have to come back to the lake often for swimming lessons, and thankful, Lorea hugs her, making her face become red like a tomato!
Not A Single Day Off
Kate and Lorea get two bags full of clams, when all of a sudden, behind them in the water a huge monster comes out and steals their bags of clams. Iris attempts to attack it with her sword, but the creature is too slimy, and when Iris stabs it with her sword, it attacks her with electricity. The monster grabbed Kate and was shocking her with electricity, but thanks to Sarasa, it let go of her.
Not only they defeated the monster, but they also have a huge haul of clams! Even the little creature that took a liking to Sarasa got happy!
Everything Ends Well
While they gather the clams, they also cut up the monster and cook it for a dinner at the beach, where they seem to have a really good time while listening to Lorea singing a beautiful melody from the Yok Village. Even the little creature’s family came to listen to it, and even though I was hoping it would become a member of the shop, the little creature is better off with its family!
Everything ended well in this episode, the girls (somewhat) got a day off, enjoyed their day at the beach, and had lots of fun!
