Easy Survival Life Chapter 158 Bonus: Sofia’s Escape 3/4

The mansion has a variety of survival goods.

Some were homemade, and some were commercially available, and we used different ones depending on the mood.

This time, I take out my favorite survival knife.

This is my partner who survived the deserted island in another world.

「 Walking through the woods together like this reminds me of that time 」

Sofia smiled at me.

I guess that time refers to the days I spend in the other world.

「 I agree, but I don’t think it was as much as this. We’re not interlocking our fingers like now 」

「 That’s not true. Shinomiya-sama and I have always been interlocking our hands 」

「 Right… 」

We wander aimlessly through the forest.

That was enough to make Sofia happy.

「 Sofia, you spent a lot of time without doing survival activities since coming back to earth, haven’t you? 」

「 Yes, I hoped to enjoy my leisure time here on the island if possible, but I never had the opportunity. I hoped to at least show up when you all gathered here on the island for Kageyama’s plan, but that didn’t happen either 」

「 Oh yeah, that happened 」

Last summer, the playboy Kageyama hosted an event.

It was an invitation to this mansion and have a home party together.

I was there and still remember it.

「 It was the right decision not to go 」

「 Really? Wasn’t it a fun reunion? 」

「 Not at all. It was horrible 」

「 Eeeh, what happened? 」

「 Simply put, Kageyama shocked all the girls except Karin 」

「 Karin-san wasn’t shocked? 」

「 Karin was furious, not shocked 」

「 Furious? 」

「 Yeah, she was in a rage. That’s why Kageyama’s banned from the island now 」

「 My. I can’t imagine 」

「 I’ll tell you about it another time. But Sofia, why don’t you try your hand at making a fire then? It’s been a while hasn’t it?

「 That’s a good idea! 」

「 It’s been several years so I think you’ll fail 」

「 That’s not true., My body still remembers my days on that island. 」

「 Let’s test it then. Do you want to do the tailspin method? 」

「 Of course! 」

I went back to the mansion and got a fire extinguishing board and stick.

「 Let’s go then 」

Sofia shows a confident face saying “Very well”

But, she didn’t start right away, she grinned and looked at me.

「 Shinomiya-sama, want to make a bet? 」

「 Bet? Gambling’s banned in Japan you know? 」

「 Worry not. There won’t be any money at stake 」

「 So, what are we betting? 」

「 Our bodies? 」

「 Bodies? 」

「 If I win, have sex with me. Just like that day 」

「 That’s definitely bad. Sofia, you have a fiance. You’re engaged, and about to get married, aren’t you? If you have sex with me, that would be unethical and legally wrong 」

「 Then it’s fine as long as I lose 」

Sofia shows a daring smile.

「 Well yeah, but adultery is still a bad idea, even if it’s a political marriage 」

「 It’s not. My partner is also dating other women as he breathes 」

「 Huh, seriously? 」

The situation’s turning around.

「 That’s how political marriages are. Of course, we’re free after marriage too 」

「 So, you’re okay with that? 」

「 Yes! Let’s bet! 」

I feel like she’s just smooth-talking me, but that’s fine.

「 Is an hour time limit good enough? Sofia can use fire sticks and planks 」

「 That’s more than enough 」

「 Okay. I’ll bet that you’ll fail 」

「 Yes 」

Sofia puffs her cheeks.

「 Am I that unreliable? 」

「 You had a long gap. But, that’s not all 」

「 What do you mean? 」

「 If I bet that you’ll succeed, Sofia will just fail on purpose. You’d give up early and ask me to do it with you 」

「 Kuh, you’re sharp 」

Sofia groans.

I laughed and said “I won’t play into your hands”

「 So, if you want sex as a reward, then succeed 」

「 Very well. If Shinomiya-sama wins, I’ll ask later what you want as your reward 」

「 Yeah 」

Sofia finished her preparations and briskly sat down.

She doesn’t care that her beautiful wine-red dress gets dirty.

If it were me, I would’ve lamented “This is a luxury dress costing tens of thousands of yen.’

「 Then, I’ll begin!! 」

Sofia’s excited to start a fire.

However, a few minutes later her expression changed.

「 Gununu, why is it not working 」

Sure enough, she was struggling to make fire.

「 You’re missing both the pressure on the stick and rotational speed. We’re using frictional heat to make fire, remember? 」

「 I know that, but… 」

Sofia frantically spins the fire stick.

However, it’s not making any black smoke.

「 My rare chance… 」

Sofia works harder.

She’s working hard that sweat’s flowing down her neck.

Yet the results remain the same.

Then, one hour passed.

「 It’s over 」

「 No way 」

Sofia hangs her head, making a dumb noise.

The sweat on her neck has become intense, like a waterfall.

It was sad because, after all that effort, it still failed.

It reminds me of Tanaka and Kageyama at that time in the other world.

「 Give me a few more minutes. I’ll succeed!

Sofia makes a desperate appeal.

「 No, you can’t. That’s the end. It’s my win 」

「 Uuuuu… 」

「 With that said, I’ll take my reward… 」

「 I understand… 」

Sofia stands up, looking sadder than ever.

The dress, stained with sweat and dirt, was increasing in the degree of melancholy.

「 What could Shinomiya-sama possibly want? 」

「 You see 」

I smiled and hugged Sofia.

Catching her off-guard, and took her lips.

Sofia was surprised that her eyes snapped open and her hands hanging down.

「 I want the same reward as Sofia 」

「 You mean… 」

「 The daughter of the Heitz family, Washimine Sofia Reina 」

「 Y-Yes! 」

Sofia’s surprised as I called her full name.

Seeing her like that, I smiled.

「 Let’s have sex 」

Sofia blushed.

「 It’s the first time I hear that while being hugged by Shinomiya-sama 」

「 Really? 」

「 Really 」

「 Then, what’s your answer? 」

「 Isn’t that obvious? 」

Sofia happily smiled.

「 Please take me 」

「 That’s decided 」

I took Sofia’s hand and went back to the mansion.

「 I’ll embrace you a lot once we get into the mansion 」

「 I can’t wait that long! Let’s do it here! 」

「 We can’t 」

「 Why? 」

「 The security company’s watching us outside 」

There are cameras everywhere on this island.

They use it to monitor suspicious people and wildlife.

「 I completely forgot about the cameras. Maybe, the exchange earlier… 」

「 It’s possible that they saw and heard it 」

「 Say that earlier! Shinomiya-sama, you dummy! 」

Steam rises from Sofia’s head.

「 Don’t worry about what happened. That’s why we’re going back to the mansion 」

「 Yes! 」

Sofia was smiling as we were on our way back to the mansion.
