So yeah, thanks for the wonderful reviews! I can't believe I went past 20~ Woohoo! I love you all, and I daresay love is an understatement! Anyway, as I promised, Ten-ma! Our cute, sakka-loving boy!

Once again, thanks a bunch for the reviews and favs, etc! I'm so happy, my phone rings with every email saying New Review! 3

Anyway, here goes!~

Happy reading!

The first time you met Tenma was... when he practiced his dribbling.

He's really a boy people should respect, for he never lose sight of his goal. He never lose sight of what he's protecting, and more over, he had fun playing soccer. He's not just a machine who plays just to win, or worst, Fifth Sector's Machine, when the said organization is still operating.

You, much to your surprise, stayed there until late evening just to see him practice.

He inspire you so much.

"...? Hello?" Sudden voice brought you back to reality. It was none other than the brown haired boy, who suddenly appeared infront of you.

"Uh, oh, hi...?" You replied, surprised.

"Hey! It's late, why are you still here?"

"I'm... watching you. Are you done?"

"Yep! I'm going home soon."

"Oh... then I'll go home." You were about walk away when he stopped you.



"I'm Matsukaze Tenma! Hey, miss, do you like soccer?"

"Uh, hey. I'm (L/n) (F/n). And yes, I like soccer."

"Oh! Hey,... your uniform! So you're from Raimon, too?"

"Yeah... I just transferred."

"Oh! No wonder I don't know you. Uh... it doesn't mean that I know everyone, but-!"

You chuckled at his antics. Of course he doesn't know everyone. That's practically impossible.

"E-ee? (L/n?)" He blushed in embarrassment.

"It's fine. Hey, Matsukaze-kun..."


"What do you feel when you play soccer?"

"Happy, of course!"

"...Happy, huh?"

"Why do you ask?"

"No, nothing."

"Hey, (L/n), if you like soccer, how about you join our club?!"

You looked at him in surprise. "No, no," you said, "I can't play."

Tenma nodded eagerly, "It's okay! You can be our fourth manager!" Tenma said.

"...Manager, huh?" You mumbled. "Let's see later."

"Oh, it's late! Let's go home!" Tenma said. "I'll walk you home."

"No, no, it's completely fine. My house is not too far away." You said.

"But a young girl can't walk home alone! It's dangerous!"

Because of his persuasion, finally you said yes and the two of you walked home together. It was a short walk, and finally you're infront of your house.

"(L/n), see you at school!" He said.

"Yeah. See you."

What a weird boy, that was your first impression of him.

But without him, you probably wouldn't join the club. He was, after all, the nicest person and the reason you accepted to join the team, despite not knowing anyone personally there.

Next: Kariya, tomorrow! Watch out for it~! Wow, so many squiggles. ~~!
