Giant Beast Forest, the Base...
In the clear lake, Hinagiku, Mikoto, Ikaros, Misaki, Flan, Astrea, Saiai, Frenda, and Rikou are still floating in it like slumbering princesses. They were also not wearing anything.
The Miraculous water streamed into the girls like a sentient potion.
This might look creepy but it is working wonders on the girls. It has been two days since Wu Yan took Kotori, Tohka, Yoshino, and Kurumi on a trip to Date A Live.
The ladies soaked in the Miraculous pool for two days and they started transforming.
Although Wu Yan used five days to complete his qualitative transformation. The girls who were using a less potent version of the Miraculous Water needed a longer time to achieve progress.
The Miraculous Water can only improve a person to his/her limits. After that, the water will no longer work. The ladies look like they might need more time.
But, there is another lady who exited the lake earlier than the others.
She had a parasol and a classy fan. Her glossy blonde locks fluttered with the wind. Yukari stood watch over the other ladies near the edge of the lake.
She has been on guard for the past two days.
Yukari took care of them while they were undergoing their metamorphosis. She came out of the lake after 1 hour of soaking.
She is so powerful the Miraculous Water could do little for her.
At her stage, it is surprising the Miraculous Water could improve her powers.
Yukari wasn't too disappointed. She was delighted that the Miraculous Water can improve her powers marginally.
She is a powerful demigod.
Any bit of progress is a welcomed boon in her books.
She can't remember the last time her powers increased. Eons she lived but the improvement she made this past week blew past the accumulations of centuries of experience.
Yukari stood on top of a boulder. She gauged the ladies' progress.
"Looks like they are steadily growing in power."
The ladies were still powering up even now.
She was sure that the ladies would be more powerful by the time they are out of the lake.
"But, there is still progress to be made."
"There are people stronger than you girls in Gensokyo and there are a few who are even more powerful than me. You girls need to grow faster."
Yukari looked at a certain corner of the lake.
The space suddenly distorted as Yukari's eyes shone brightly.
A few figures emerged from the spatial anomaly.
It was Wu Yan & co who just returned from Date A Live.
They were teleported from the living room of the Kotori residence to a lake with beautiful ladies slumbering on the surface.
Miku, Origami, Kaguya, and Yuzuru couldn't believe their eyes.
"What just happened?"
Yuzuru voiced her surprise.
"Yuzuru has read multiple novels but a development like this..."
Miku looked at the ladies soaking in the water.
"What a beautiful sight! Absolutely marvelous!"
Origami looked at Wu Yan.
"Is this ending?"
Wu Yan scratched his cheek.
"No, it doesn't look like it will end anytime soon."
"2 days had passed..."
Yukari emerged from her portal that had multiple eyes in it. She roamed her gaze over Yuzuru, Kaguya, Origami, and Miku.
Wu Yan didn't expect her to emerge behind him.
Kotori, Kurumi, Tohka, and Yoshino greeted her.
Yukari nodded with a smile.
"I see, you girls returned too?"
Wu Yan scanned Yukari with his System's scanner.
Yakumo Yukari: Level 96
Wu Yan chortled.
"Yukari, you leveled up?"
"An accumulation of centuries of experience, the Miraculous Pool only pushed me over the threshold."
"Not bad, I didn't think the Water had such effects."
Wu Yan nodded.
"Well, I wonder how long they are going to take?"
"There will be speeders and laggards."
"Judging by their growth rates and aura, there should be two girls who will wake up today."
Wu Yan looked at Kotori, Kurumi, Tohka, and Yoshino.
"Kotori, you girls haven't soaked in this lake yet, go in..."
The ladies nodded.
He looked at Miku, Kaguya, Yuzuru, and Origami.
"Since you girls are already here, might as well soak in the lake with Kotori & co too! We will leave the introductions for a later date."
"Is there something special about the lake? Is that why they're soaking in it?"
"Yeah, imagine this as a power-up lake."
Wu Yan said.
"Go soak in it and your powers will increase."
Kaguya and Yuzuru's eyes shone brightly.
Even Origami was tempted by it.
"Taking a bath with cute girls?"
Miku raised her arm.
"I am going in! You don't have to tell me twice!"
"Yes, you can enter."
"But, you're not allowed to come near us!"
Miku voiced her displeasure.
Wu Yan shook his head.
"Just get in already, you ladies need the power-ups."
