Chapter 1: Chapter 52.A - Pressures and Expectations
"Say, Yui-san…" Zakuro shifted in place as her back was being scrubbed by her angelic host. "You all called me a 'Maniacal Girl.' Does that mean you and the others are Magical Girls?"
Yui smiled. "Yeah! Well, I'm just the club manager. I didn't really want to be a Magical Girl."
"Ehhh? Why wouldn't you want to be a Magical Girl? It sounds…" the amnesia-stricken demon lord began to blush a deep red, "…like a lot of fun."
Her heart-rate doubled once she forced those words out. Why was it so embarrassing to say that? She wondered, her mind racing as quickly as her heart.
"Well… To be honest, I don't think I can handle that kind of pressure. I already have a family name to uphold… I'd rather stay on the sidelines and watch. That's plenty of fun for me!"
Zakuro looked to the floor. "It didn't occur to me that being the daughter of a rich family could be difficult like that."
"It's not that bad! Every day I learn from the other club members how lucky I am. Like, I can basically ask my servants for just about anything I want, whenever I want it. I don't think I'm allowed to complain!"
The daughter of the Furumi family was smiling brightly, but it left her guest with conflicting feelings splashing around in her chest. "I guess… But that doesn't mean you can't have problems, does it?"
This brought Yui pause, and she stopped scrubbing Zakuro's back.
Zakuro's heart began beating even faster as she sensed Yui getting closer and closer to her. Before she knew it, her body was shaking intensely, and every hair on her body was standing up on end as Yui began to tightly hug her from behind.
"Wh-What are you-!" The perplexed girl squirmed anxiously as she felt Yui's breasts press up against her back, and the kindly girl's head resting on her shoulder. "S-st-stop! P-please! I'm begging you!"
Recognizing her guest's discomfort, Yui released her grip and crawled around to apologize. "Sorry, I didn't realize you were so sensitive! Please forgive me!"
Zakuro's face was so red, it was almost hard to tell that her nose was bleeding. Her head felt lighter than a balloon, and her breathing was shaky and irregular. I didn't realize I was so sensitive either! W-why am I like this around Yui?
"It was just so sweet of you to care about me like that. I've never really shared that with anyone."
Steadying her breathing, Zakuro's gaze locked with Yui's, who had some tears welling up in her eyes. I… think I want to kiss her. But Zakuro shook off that thought. No, we're both girls, why am I thinking about that?
"I think you'd make a great Magical Girl."
Yui seemed surprised, but she returned a smile. "I think you would, too."
Chapter 2: Chapter 53.A - Zakuro's Triangle
Akira made his way down the school hallway, still shuddering from the traumatic experience he'd had at Yui's house. He struggled to remember his locker combination, because memories of their bath together kept poisoning his mind.
While Akira was fumbling with the lock, he heard a goofy voice from behind him.
"Oh, hey, it's Akira-chan~!"
He slowly turned his head to see that it was Naoya, who had a dopey grin on his face.
"...What did you just call me?"
"Don't be so cold, Akira-chan~!" Naoya took a wobbly step toward him. "That's no way to talk to your boyfriend!"
"M-my-," Akira pressed himself flat against the lockers, getting as much distance between himself and Naoya as possible, "My what?"
"You missed my call last night! I was worried sick about you, my love!" Naoya shifted in place, and made a dorky-looking pout with his mouth.
Sweat was pouring down Akira's forehead as he clung to the wall. "N-no! I didn't agree to this! Back off, you oaf! Y-you think I swing that way? I'd never date a creep like you!"
Naoya, however, continued to approach flirtatiously. "Ehhh? What's the matter, Akira-chan~? You were so cute and sweet yesterday~. Why are you hiding your feelings today?"
His advance was interrupted, however, when a voice suddenly cut through the air, "Leave Zakuro-san alone!"
Abruptly turning their heads, Naoya and Akira saw Yui Furumi stomping down the hall.
"Clearly she isn't interested, so buzz off!"
"But Akira-chan told me yesterday that he loved me! He's just being tsundere as usual!" Naoya argued.
Akira looked on with pure shock and horror as the two began to fight over him.
Suddenly, Yui grabbed Akira's hand and began dragging him down the hallway.
"Come on, Zakuro-san, I'll get you away from this pervert!"
Looking back just before they rounded the corner, Akira saw Naoya laying on the ground, sobbing.
Even when he's being a creep, he's still pathetic… Akira thought to himself, baffled by what had just transpired.
"Are you alright, Zakuro-san? I hope he didn't hurt you."
Akira turned forward again, and found himself face to face with Furumi-san, who had now taken his other hand and was staring at him intensely.
"GAHH!" Flush red, Akira jumped and pulled his hands away, his skirt swaying with his movement.
Looking down, Akira realized he was wearing their high school's girls' uniform. Blonde twintails brushed past his shoulders. She began shaking as she pushed down the hem of the skirt in embarrassment.
"It's okay!" Yui said in a calm and comforting voice. "You're safe with me, Zakuro-san."
Zakuro felt one of Yui's hands begin brushing through her hair, as the other wrapped her in a warm embrace. Although squeamish at first, Zakuro was too exhausted to resist, and she soon fell into Yui's arms. She felt so warm and loved as Yui held her so tenderly.
"Come on, Zakuro-chan, let's relax with a bath."
As if struck by lightning, Zakuro opened her eyes only to see she was already in the bath, and she was looking directly at Yui's bare breasts.
Zakuro sprang up from Yui's bed, screaming. "AHHHHHHHHHH!" Her body shuddered uncontrollably, and her breathing was erratic.
Yui turned from her vanity, where she was styling her hair. "Zakuro-san, good morning," Yui greeted with care and concern, "is everything alright?"
Zakuro was already collecting her belongings, and she used the Maniacal Girl app to change her outfit to her school uniform. "I-I need to get going!"
"But… What about breakfast?" Yui offered graciously. "Our chef is making-"
"Thank you for your hospitality, really. But I have to leave!"
The fleeing demon lord slammed the door shut as she hurried out of the Furumi manor as swiftly as possible.
As she hurried out the gate to the driveway, she let out an exasperated sigh.
I wanna erase my entire memory of last night…
