A/N – I am writing while studying how to write sentences. It’s still rough, but I’ll do my best to write it, so please see it if you like.
*8/13 Typo misspellings pointed out in modified comments.
I woke up when the sun is beginning to set.
The fluffy bed invites me to sleep longer.
The smell of cloth drying in the sun is tickling my nostrils.
Then an uncomfortable feeling attacks me.
I open my eyes slowly, but my eyes are still heavy with sleep.
My vision is blurred and my mind is confused.
My body lacks strength as if all the energy I have has been sucked out.
But I have to teach Alicia the basics of her rehabilitation program.
I try to move my body, but I can’t seem to move.
I can’t help it, so I try to roll over even a little.
I managed to turn over.
There is a silhouette in front of me and it is looking at me.
I’m not sure what or who it is because my sight is blurry from sleep.
The silhouette is watching me.
My sight gradually clears and focuses.
I can no see what the silhouette is.
“What are you doing, Alicia?” (Kaoru)
I said with a sleepy voice,
My body is still pinned down by exhaustion.
Alicia reacts to Kaoru’s voice and her cheeks are dyed red.
The redness of her blush is very noticeable due to her pale complexion.
Gaze at me with a shy expression, while mumbling.
I listen to her and wait for her to repeat what she said.
Alicia slows her breath, then murmurs.
“Thank you, Kaoru-san, for curing my sickness.” (Alicia)
She was so red that steam might come out of her head.
Kaoru puts his hand on Alicia’s head while awkwardly petting her head saying, “I don’t mind.”
“It’s going to be hard from now on. You’ve been bedridden for so long, so I’d like you to exercise little by little. Otherwise, you won’t be able to move, okay?” (Kaoru)
Smiling, I told Alicia.
Alicia puts her strength in her hands and brings herself to a sitting position.
“By the way, did you walk up to here?” (Kaoru)
I asked her.
“Yes, I couldn’t walk far… and I easily tire. I had to walk slowly while steadying myself against the wall.”
She was shy and replied embarrassingly.
“I’m going to teach you how to rehabilitate your body to be able to live normally. Let me lie down a little. I’m sorry. I’m tired and I can’t move now.” (Kaoru)
Forgetting my current situation, I realized that I was talking about rehabilitation, and I thought that I was stupid for saying so while not being able to move.
“Oh, Kaoru-san, are you okay?” (Alicia)
I told Alicia, who had a worried expression, that she was tired because she had surgery after a long time of suffering her illness.
When she heard the words, she became more and more worried.
This is happened because of me.
As I realized this I stroked Alicia’s head and said.
“I don’t want children to feel like this. Please don’t. Don’t put on that kind of face.”
Saying that, while stroking her head, Alicia becomes sulky with her cheeks swelling.
I tilted my head.
Then, poked her cheeks puffed-up with air.
“Mu, Kaoru-san. I’m an adult at 16 years old. Don’t treat me as a child.” (Alicia)
Alicia berates me with an angry expression.
However, I thought that I would still be a high school student when I was 16 years old.
“I’m an adult at the age of 15. I can drink alcohol, but I’ve never done it… and I can also get married, so please stop treating me as a child!” (Alicia)
She said it proudly to me.
When I heard the words that’s when I found out that 15 years old is the legal age in this world.
Well, I felt that there was merit to what she was saying.
I apologize for being rude, then I stroked her cheek while casually apologizing. And her face suddenly turned red and the eyes became dots.
Her reactions still make me smile though.
“I won’t treat you like a child anymore. Is that right?” (Kaoru)
Telling Alicia in a gentle voice.
Then, she smiled cheerfully while nodding and blushing.
Oh, but it is still a crime in my old world.
I was pondering, “I am different now! I’m 18 years old, but am I considered an old man?”
And Alicia’s appearance was perfectly in my strike-zone.
Now my thoughts wander off, I have to get back on track.
After collecting my thoughts and focusing my mind I talked to Alicia in a serious tone.
“OK, I need to teach you your rehabilitation program.” (Kaoru)
I asked Alicia to lie down on the bed, thinking, “If she learns it quickly and does it in her free time, she will be able to return to her daily life sooner.”
Her pale blue hair sways gently.
With delicate limbs, the tops and bottoms of the pajamas were light pink with Usa-chan’s mark. (T/N-Usa-chan is like a childish-cutesy way of saying usagi/rabbit)
The sunlight was shining through the window, and her hair was shining.
I felt my heart skip a beat.
I’m turning to a loli-con. I forced my heart to cooperate with my mind.
Doctor mode on
Alicia twists her face down and says to me wondering.
“Kaoru-san has been saying this word since a while ago. What is ‘Rihabobishun’?”
Her face reflected how confused she was inside.
Her reaction made me laugh.
So, I have to teach her from the very beginning then.
“Simply put, you’ve been bedridden because of your illness. Alicia’s leg muscles and physical strength have fallen. So, after the surgery, you need to have good habits to help you transition to a normal life. This is to help you move forward, there are some exercises involved. The sooner you start doing your rehabilitation, the better. The series of exercises is called rehabilitation.” (Kaoru)
Don’t they know this? I say with a slightly uneasy look.
“Yes, I understand. But it’s still difficult to walk around. I could only come to this place by taking breaks and touching the wall.” (Alicia)
With a dull feel, Alicia said.
“That’s right. You can’t do things suddenly. You have to do it little by little. First, I think it’s better to start with a massage. It’s faster than I explain. I’ll do it from now on. Okay?” (Kaoru)
Then, moving to Alicia’s side, informing her that “I will be touching your feet”, and gently grab Alicia’s ankle.
Perhaps because she was bedridden for so long her ankle was a little thin and lacked flesh.
I know that it would improve from now on.
Bend your legs as they are and slowly bend them towards her buttocks.
“Ouch, Kaoru-sama, this is more painful than I thought.” (Alicia)
Alicia complains with teary eyes and fluttering hands.
While laughing I let her rest for a bit.
Then, Alicia, who was moving jerkily, stopped working.
Her reactions are comedy gold.
“No, I’m sorry. They are a bit stiff. Well, why don’t I start slowly?” (Kaoru)
Without listening to Alicia’s reply.
With a sly grin, I slowly bend Alicia’s legs back towards her hips.
Each time, Alicia screams, “Funya, stop!”, and her hands move.
Doing the same for both feet Alicia was unmoving on her pillow by the end.
“It’s terrible. Kaoru-san didn’t stop even if I disliked it. That grin was filled with evil.” (Alicia)
The face is turned to Kaoru and he screams.
“It’s unavoidable that it hurts for the first time? But you did amusing reactions. Well, I’m relieved because the next ones don’t hurt.” (Kaoru)
I said to her while laughing.
But Alicia looks at me with eyes full of suspicion.
She couldn’t trust my word because of the things I did earlier.
However, I clasp her calf in the carpals with both hands and applied light pressure using my thumbs, while she’s not resisting.
Maintaining the pressure still for a few seconds, then release the pressure quickly.
Repeating the motion over and over, then doing it all throughout her legs.
The carpal compression massage used in modern times is used to loosen the muscles that were just stretched.
“Wow, this feels good~” (Alicia)
The teary eyes I had just received, I felt like I was doing something else, and I continued to give her the rehabilitation massage.
As long as I see it, my cheeks will loosen once in a while.
Alicia is steadily exuding a different presence.
It seemed as if she were a princess.
“Hey, it won’t hurt okay?” (Kaoru)
I laugh and tell Alicia, but when she is not completely fussy, she says she feels like she’s dreaming saying, “A little more in the same place” and “A little more”.
I said, “Let’s have it hurt a little next time,” as if to pour cold water, and Alicia returns to reality.
It’s all I need to do, squeeze her shoulders and squeeze her wrists.
And so on.
However, I reluctantly acknowledged her, “I will not treat you like a child.”
I massaged Alicia on her back and her sitting down.
She screamed every time I massage her.
After seeing Alicia, I laughed and continue giving her a rehabilitation massage.
By the time we finished, it was almost the evening.
Alicia was lying down on her bed.
Unable to move, I lifted Alicia like a princess.
Then Alicia, a little surprised and collapsed in my arm.
“Do you want to go back to your room?” (Kaoru)
Alicia replied, blushing her cheeks and happily filling her face in Kaoru’s chest.
