Prince of Tennis, MomoKai, PG13, 900 words.
The course of true love never did run smooth.
"Momo-senpai, I thought you would be with Kaidoh-senpai."
"That jerk! I hope I never see him again as long as I live."
"Oh. Do you want to play tennis?"
"I was just helping Tachibana An with her serve and then that idiot Mamushi came along and yelled at me for flirting with her. So I yelled at him for yelling at me. And then stupid Kamio came along and yelled at me for flirting with An. And then Kaidoh yelled at him for flirting with me. And then they yelled at each other and then they went off together to play tennis. At least that's what they said they were doing."
"So do you want to play tennis or not?"
"Do you think I'm a flirt?"
"What's that mark on your neck, Momo-senpai?"
"I cut myself shaving."
"That's not a cut and you don't need to shave."
"Shut up, Echizen."
"Let's play tennis, Momo-senpai."
"I'm too depressed."
"See, I was going to go hang out with Kaidoh but then he told me that he had to go train with Inui-senpai so I asked Eiji-senpai to ask Fuji-senpai to ask Inui-senpai what he wanted with Kaidoh. And then Eiji-senpai told me that Fuji-senpai told him that Inui-senpai said that I should buy myself a pet hamster because I was going to be spending a lot of lonely nights from now on and so I told Kaidoh that Inui-senpai was just interested in one thing and Kaidoh yelled at me that I was always jealous and that of course Inui-senpai just wanted to help him improve his tennis for the good of Seigaku and now they're probably making out."
"So do you want to play or not?"
"Do you think they'd see us if we spy on them?"
"Momo-senpai, why were you so late for practice today?"
"Then why did you and Kaidoh-senpai have to run so many laps?"
"Just serve the damn ball, Echizen."
"Where's your racquet, Momo-senpai?"
"Oh, I guess I forgot it. Who cares about stupid tennis anyhow?"
"You know how Inui-senpai wasn't at practice today? Well, Eiji-senpai told me that Oishi-senpai saw him in the hallway at school and there was a bruise on his face. I asked Kaidoh about it and he said the Inui-senpai had actually tried to put the moves on him but Kaidoh punched him and that's why Inui-senpai was all beaten up. So then I said, 'I told you so' to Kaidoh. But the stupid snake got mad and punched me too! I punched him back, but he dodged and I fell down and got all muddy. At least it didn't leave a bruise."
"Are you going to go and get your racquet?"
"I don't think it left a bruise. Is my face bruised?"
"Are you ready to go?"
"I can't go out for hamburgers with you today, Echizen."
"Because I ran into Kaidoh in the club room and he said he was sorry for beating me up and even though he hadn't beaten me up, I only fell down because I tripped, I said that it was okay and I was sorry that I had beaten him up too and he said that I hadn't even come close to beating him up and it would be a cold day in hell before I could beat him up and so I shoved him and then he shoved me and then I shoved him again and then he kissed me and we made out against the lockers until Horio came in and disturbed us."
"Please don't tell me these things, Momo-senpai."
"So we're going over to his house. Do you think Horio will tell anyone?"
"Are we actually going to play tennis today, Momo-senpai?"
"I don't know why I bother."
"You're not that bad at tennis."
"I went to meet Kaidoh at street tennis but that creepy St Rudolph guy, Mizuki, was hanging all over him. I told Kaidoh that he wouldn't have creepy guys trying to pick him up all the time if he stopped dressing like a rent boy and then he got all pissed off and said that at least he didn't look like he dressed himself from a thrift store. And all the time that creep Mizuki was holding him by the arm and giving me this creepy grin. I tried to get Kaidoh away, but then Mizuki made Fuji's little brother challenge me to a match so of course I had to play and by the time we were done, stupid Mamushi and Mizuki had gone off to go shopping together."
"What's a rent boy?"
"Hi Momo-senpai, this is Echizen calling. I guess I'll leave a message on your voice mail. I was going to ask you to play tennis today but when I saw you and Kaidoh-senpai in the club room, you looked a little busy. But Fuji-senpai said he'd play with me, so I guess that's what I'll be doing from now on. Oh, and I hope you didn't trip over Horio. He fainted so we left him there. So, talk to you later."
"Ready to go play, Echizen?"
"Don't you need to get your racquet, Fuji-senpai?"
"Oh, play tennis. Well, we can do that too."
"What do you mean by that?"
"You'll see, Echizen. You'll see."
