It's lazy days like these that you live for, at least for however long you can. Back when you were young, every day was too dull no matter how exciting. "Heh... Remember that time we played a prank on Ms. Kamishirasawa?"
Looking up from under your beard, the fairy simply asks, "Which?"
Honestly? Any, really. ...But there is one that stands out. "The one with the frozen frog in her shoe."
"Heh... And when she picked up that wet shoe, it chose the perfect time to come to, hopping onto her face."
"Could hear the scream from the lake!" You give her your few-toothed grin in return.
"Right?!" She returns it with a grin full of pearls.
While you're distracted, you feel a tug at your pole, and are quick to pull back a slack line. You're left grumbling at the missing bait, not that you lack for worms, but time is something you run short on. You've been having this happening more and more of late. Applying more bait, you send it back out, only to get another tug not a second later. Reeling it in, the hook is empty once more.
Now a bit more chipper, Cirno teases, "Man, someone must be getting their fill." Ohh, you'll give someone their fill alright. You give that little smart alack in your lap a noogie, though she takes it with a giggle, finding great joy in your reaction. Releasing her and grabbing the oars, you begin paddling your way to the shallows. The deeper end of the lake's a mite bit dangerous anyways. Talk of sea monster and worse and all that. Not that you ever much believed that sorta thing. Ohh, sure, you believe in sea monsters, but sea monsters are, y'know... in the sea.
This ain't no sea, no matter how deep it is. Heck, you'd bet one of your precious few teeth on that! ...Not that you'd really want an idiot's teeth if you won, no matter how good a trade they might make with some ambitious magey type.
Now in the shallows, and hopefully not being stalked by any kappa with weird tastes, you begin to rear back, readying to cast your line.
"Cirnooo~" Taking your eyes off the water, you spy Cirno's green-haired friend. What was her name again?
Grinning like a million bucks, Cirno launches into the air, getting a wince from you due to where she launched off of. "Dai!" No, that wasn't it. Somethin' a mite bit longer.
Now at eye level, if not foot level, Cirno gives her a big hug. "Dai!"
"Wanna go play?" She gives her smaller fairy friend a giggle, which you don't think is anything alike to a hug, but who are you to judge?
"You bet your ass I do!"
And with that, you find the hot summer day all the more uncomfortably hot, as you've lost your favorite ice pack.
To alleviate that, you take another swig of your sake. ...Not as good without company, though. Pausing for a moment, you get a terrible idea, and get to work, fashioning your spare sake bottle into bait fashioning a noose with some rope to get it secure.
If you're gonna be harassed by kappa, might as well get a drinking buddy in the process.
