'Whaddup everyone! Or should I say Konichiwa minna-san! Or is it konichiwa anata-tachi? Gah! I don't know.. I really don't know! Studying different languages could really confuse you easily. So, about me.. My parents were dead; the reason of their dead is the topic that I really wanted to avoid at all cost. I don't want to talk about it.. it's depressing. I am half Japanese, yeah.. you could say that. My dad is a 100% Japanese and my mom is half Italian, quarter French and quarter English. Man, I got tonnes of different blood in my body. Well, as I'm saying.. I am an orphan and I have been passed around to my relatives in all around the world- literally. So, yeah my last relative I'm living with was in America and our 'contract' is up. So, .. this time, I'm here now in Japon to meet the family from my dad's side! I had been waiting this moment in my whole life. I do hope my uncle and cousin still remembers me though. They are the nicest relatives ever! Oh, yeah... I forgot to introduce myself now, haven't I? For starters, my name is Yamamoto Junko, I'm 14 and damn it... I'm lost!'
Tsuna took a glance at Yamamoto at his seat. He did notice that Yamamoto was not quiet himself since this morning... even Gokudera notice his difference. Yamamoto seems to be bothered about something. The hectic "A" class went quiet as the hideous, horrifying, bullying and most hated Nezu-sensei steps in.
"Okay, student. A new student will join our class today, so please show her that school in Japan can be better than anywhere else she had been" said Nezu in his snobbish tone, "Oii you, get in here!" said Nezu in English.
The new girl steps in and replied Nezu in English as well, "tch- the only thing I hate in this school is you, Mr. Nezu. Do you have to act mighty all the time?"
Her fluent English had earned her a full attention from her fellow new classmates. She looks back at them, and introduce herself in Japanese, "hello, everyone! I am a new student here so please be nice. I hope I could get along with everyone. By the way, my name is..."
"JUNKO!" every eye in the class is focused on the certain black hair, tanned skin and tall boy at the back of the class. Tsuna, again, realize that his eyes are shining bright with happiness and the tone of... relieve? from Yamamoto's voice. He looks back at the girl and notices her teary eyes.
"Takeshi!" Junko ran towards him and jumps on him. Yamamoto just simply catches her and hug her tightly, "I'm glad I found you here. I thought I'll be lost forever"
He put the clinging girl down, "Where have you been Jun-chan? I had been worried sick! Bad Jun-chan! Bad!" for the first time, everybody saw Yamamoto scolding to someone, to a girl no less.
The new girl pouts at him, "don't blame me! The signs in Japan are very confusing! It was already 2 am, so I just spent a night at hotel. Thank goodness the hotel worker knows where Namimori middle school is. So I decided to attend the school first because I know I could find you here. Am I smart, Takeshi?" the way she addressed Yamamoto by his name makes the girls gone crazy.
"for you to spent a night in the hotel is smart decision, but for you not informing me that you're spending a night outside, that's not smart at all. You could have called me and I will pick you up whenever the time was!" Yamamoto's brows furrowed, but he doesn't look too angry. He even sounded as if he picked his words carefully.
Everyone are concentrate on 'drama' that occur before their eyes. The boys are blushing with the new girl's closeness with their baseball star, thinking how lucky Yamamoto is to be hug by a cute girl and the girls (except for Kyoko and Hana, duh~) are fuming with jealousy.
Junko is playing her index fingers together and look down at her feet, "I'm sorry, Take-nii"
Although they could barely hear her sweet voice, the boys immediately blushing as they saw Junko's cute expression, 'SO CUTE~'
Realizing her guilty expression, Yamamoto let out a fake cough, "Maa.. seeing you here safe and sound, that was enough though" he pats her head, "Just don't make me worried like that.. EVER!"
The girl just nodded. She turn to the awful sensei, "nee, sensei.. which one is my seat?"
"Since you know Yamamoto-kun, I think the empty seat next to you is convenient"
Yamamoto let out his usual grin, "It's looks like we're going to be a seat mate, nee Jun-chan?"
"please take care of me then, Yamamoto-san..." both of them laugh. Somehow, Tsuna, again, could realize the similarity in their laugh.
"Hieee... she is your cousin?" the rooftop is filled with Tsuna's voice.
The new girl nodded, "I am Yamamoto Junko and from today onwards, I'll be living with Take-nii! Nice to meet you, Take-nii's friends" she leans towards Tsuna, "Nee Tsuna, does anyone ever told you that you are a cutie?"
"Hieee... what do you mean by that?" Tsuna tries to hide his blushing face.
"See, you did it again! You are so cute, Tsuna!" said Junko in her innocent tone.
"Ahahaha.. Jun-chan. You're straight forward as usual, aren't you?"
"Horaaa, Chibi! Stop making Juudaime nervous, you stupid-idiot!" Gokudera shouted at her face.
Junko's ears twitch as she heard Gokudera's words. To be called Chibi, she admit it.. she is short and she is willingly accept the fact. But, to be called stupid AND idiot, Gokudera just crossed the boundary. She looks at him with murderous stare. In second, she jumps up and hit Gokudera's gut with her knee. Immediately, causing the bomber to fall on his knee and moan in pain.
"Serve you right!" she said in satisfied tone, "For the record, I am NOT an idiot!" she sticks her tongue out to Gokudera.
"You..." said Gokudera in weak, threatening voice.
'Hieee.. she's violent compared to Yamamoto. And, she even took Gokudera down? Reborn might have an interest in her if he knew about this. I must 'hide' her from Reborn's knowledge' Tsuna have the determination in his eyes.
"Oii, dame-Tsuna. Introduce us!" a voice commands him.
As if it was a reflex, Tsuna did the introduction, "Reborn, this is Jun-chan and Jun-chan, this is..." Tsuna paused as he looks nearby his legs, "HIEEE... REBORN! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?"
"I just wanted to meet your new classmate, dame- Tsuna! She's quiet hot topic around the school. But, I didn't aware that she's Yamamoto's cousin" said the baby. The only lie he told was the last sentence. Hell, he's Reborn, he knew EVERYTHING.
"OH MY GOD, IT'S A TALKING BABY!" Junko freaked out, "why is he wearing suit? Is that a fedora? Where are his parents? What is he doing here?" Junko moves around Reborn like a wind, observing him.
Tsuna sighs in relieve, 'finally, someone with a normal reaction' he just don't get it why people around him seems to be comfortable with the fact that Reborn is actually a baby even though he act all mature, like an ...
"Why does he act like an old man?" the last statement shocked Tsuna. He knew what will happen next. Leon transformed into 1000 ton mallet and hit Junko's blank head, hard.
"Hieee.. Reborn, you might kill her!" Tsuna yelled.
Yamamoto looks surprised as he saw his cousin lying on the floor. He didn't even notice it was because of Reborn's 'courtesy', "Ahh, Jun-chan! Don't sleep on the floor!"
Leon quickly returns to his real form and hiding under Reborn's fedora, 'Hmph, this kid might be nothing special af...'
"ITAAAIIII!" Junko covers her bump head with her hands and rolling on the floor comically, trying to hold in the pain. Streams of tears flow on her cheek anime-like, "What was that for, baby?" she sat on the floor with a pout on her face.
"Hn. She got a thick skull like you, dame-Tsuna!" he look straight at Junko with his black beady eyes, "Yamamoto Junko.. I need to talk to you later"
"Gee, yeah.. whatever!" she still rubbing her head, trying to sooth the bump. Reborn instantly disappear. What is he, a ninja?
"Ahahaha.. Jun-chan, what happen to your head?" ask Yamamoto as he realize Junko's swollen head.
Junko brushes off Yamamoto's hand, "man~ don't touch it! by the way, what class are we having after this?"
"Hieee.. we're going to have P.E after this!" Tsuna put his hands on his head, trying to deny (?) the fact, "and they said we're going to have interclass mini-basketball tournament after this? I'm sure not going to be chosen"
"Don't worry, Juudaime! I'll blow them up if they didn't allow you to play" said Gokudera with high determination.
"Hiee.. That is not necessary, Gokudera-kun!"
"Eh, really? That will be interesting, right Jun-chan? I'm sure you still have your 'touch'.." said Yamamoto with a wide grin on his face.
"of course, Take-nii. I've had improved since the last time" she replied with a smile.
In the gym
"So, coach.. we need at least minimum of four people in the team and maximum five... and it is a compulsory to include girls in each team?" ask Kenji, "If girls are included, then I'm out!" the forfeit by the basketball star made the crowds jeered.
"Then, get Juudaime into the team then!" said Gokudera excitedly.
"Sawada, you're up!" said the bossy Hana, "now, girls.. who want to be our participant?"ask Hana, expecting for one more girls to show her hand.
The rest of A-class cowers as they are aware of their rival B-class will make up team of the basketball players as well as athlete club members.
"Jun-chan! Come on!" Yamamoto waves at her. Almost every girl stares at her in jealousy.
Junko sighs as she stands up and dust off the imaginary dirt on her short, "If you say so.. Kurokawa-san, I'm in" she joins the team circle as well.
"It's looks like there be only four of us will be playing. So, our positions had been decided then. Tsuna is the point guard, Gokudera will be shooter guard, I'll be the centre and Jun-chan will be the small forward"
"Is that because I'm the shortest, Take-nii?" she ask with annoyed tone, "come on. Can I become the point guard? I mean, Tsuna is short too.."
"Maa.. maa.. Tsuna is the point guard because we decided to make him our captain"
"Oii, Chibi! Do you want to take Juudaime's position?" he looks at Tsuna with admiration, "being a captain suits you, Juudaime!"
"Oii, oii... talking about pressure-" Tsuna sweat drop.
Yamamoto pats Junko's head, "Besides, you got the quickest feet and you're sly as well" he explained with a grin on his face.
Junko shrugged, "well, I'll take the 'sly' comment as a compliment!"
Yamamoto dribbles the ball while moving very fast. He tries to shoot but somehow rebounds and the ball got into the rival's hand.
"Baseball-freak! What have you done?" ask Gokudera angrily as he chase down the ball.
"Ahahaha.. my bad. My bad..." Yamamoto replies with his usual carefree tones.
The rival's point guard are about to make slam dunk when Junko blocks him. The crowds cheered loudly as they saw she jump higher than the tall point guard.
"Jun-chan is amazing!" Tsuna's compliments made Gokudera feels jealous over Junko.
Now, Junko got the ball. She dribbles it slowly.
"Come on.. she's just a girl! GET HER!" yell the rival's centre. Immediately, Junko charges towards them while her dribbling become faster and faster. She avoids the rival team's hands by dribbling the ball between her legs skilfully, then she shoots.
"2 points for class A" Yamamoto announced excitedly, "Nice job, Jun-chan!"
Final 60 seconds
A-class 80 points VS B-class 80 points
"Time out!" said Yamamoto to the referee/coach with T-sign with his hand.
"It's the crucial final 60 seconds, guys" announced Junko. She looks sweaty, in fact, they all are.
"So, juudaime, what's the plan?" ask eager Gokudera.
"Hiee... I don't know! It's even a miracle that we get 80 points when I'm still in this team!"
"Give me the ball..." said Junko. She looks serious.
"Oii woman! What do you..mph..mm" Junko quickly covers Gokudera's loud mouth.
"I'm not finish talking yet, Gokudera. As I said, get me the ball at all cost. Then we'll pass the ball around until the last 10 second, then Tsuna, the rest will be your job"
"hiee... what do you mean by that?" he ask in a lower voice.
"you're the one who's going to lead us to our victory, right 'captain?" she stares at him deeply as he released Gokudera's mouth.
"You agree with me, Gokudera?" she ask with a soft voice that make him blush. He just nodded.
"Let's make a group circle!" said Yamamoto loudly as he pulled his team member towards him.
"Stupid baseball-freak, get your hands off me!" Gokudera failed with his attempt on removing Yamamoto's strong grips.
Junko just quietly obeyed.
Yamamoto initiates the chanting "A-CLASS! FIGHT—"
"OH!" yelled the members, with a full spirit.
"Game on!" announced the referee.
Gokudera successfully snatch the ball from the rival's power forward and run towards their area, "Baseball-freak!" he toss the ball to Yamamoto. After making a 'fake' and the rival team falls for it, he throws the ball to Junko, "Lead the team to success, Jun-chan" he winks at her.
"that girl is going to make a shot! Stop her!" said the rival's team captain. Junko smile, it's looks like the plan will work out just fine. She ran towards Tsuna who stand at the three point line and swiftly shoved the ball to his hand and turns him to face the tall basket. The rest of the rival team are still chasing Junko around, unaware the ball is with the least expectable people in whole world.
"Do it, Tsuna!" shout Yamamoto.
"Hiieee... what should I do?" Tsuna started to panic.
"The ball is with dame-Tsuna!" said the captain, causing all of them rush towards him and collides with each other.
Junko inhales deeply, "THROW THE DAMN BALL, TSUNA!"
His body jolt because of Junko's loud voice, "HIEEE~" Tsuna shut his eyes and randomly throws the ball. The ball hit the basket ring and circles it. The whole gym is in silences as all of them are focused on the 'teasing' ball.
The referee blows his whistle and simultaneously, the ball gets into the loop, "A-CLASS 83 VS B-CLASS 80! A-CLASS WINS!" With that, the whole crowds cheer loudly.
"that dame-Tsuna almost killed me with a heart attack!"
"Ceh- it's just a flunk!"
"for a moment, I thought dame-Tsuna is cool!"
"Eh, for real?"
The people in the gym are muttering on how exciting the game was and how Tsuna surprised everyone.
"You did it, Tsuna!" Yamamoto elbowed Tsuna's arm.
"stupid baseball-freak! Don't you dare elbowed Juudaime!" he turns to Tsuna with his eyes sparkling in admiration, "that was a beautiful throw just now, Juudaime. As expected of you!"
"Maa.. maa, if it's someone you want to saying thanks to, it's her" said Tsuna as he looks at the girl figure who's standing across the gym. She notice them looking at her and give them a wide smile and a peace sign. They all could see what she mouthed at them, 'thanks, captain. You did a great job!'
"Hey, let's celebrate at my place then!"
