|Uuugh, stop calling me “Momo-kun”!|
|But you get mad when I call you “Hime-kun” anyways. Such a pain. You have a girly face, so I might as well call you “Momoko-chan”~|
|That’s not even my real name! I’m “Tori”! I guess you could read the kanji for “To” like “Momo”, but I’m not “Momo”!|
|Be more polite when you’re talking to me… I wonder why so many of the students here don’t know any manners towards their seniors… Well, whatever. That aside… How come Yuu-kun hasn’t been showing up to tennis club activities lately?|
|When I say “Yuu-kun”, I obviously mean Makoto Yuuki-kun. Are you an idiot? Are you dead?|
|I’m not an idi---Whoa, just barely over the net?!
Sena…-senpai’s playing style is relentless, I hate it!
|You just have to win, and then nothing else will matter. Anyways, answer the question, will you? After taking all that trouble to register in the same club… Yuu-kun, why won’t you come see me? I transferred to the tennis club just for Yuu-kun. I’m always chasing after Yuu-kun, even though I love him so much.|
|Isn’t that because the way Sena-senpai expresses his love is gross?
Waah?! This time, that close to the baseline?!
|I might end up bullying kids who say annoying things even more~ You have experience in tennis, right? Say, aren’t you frustrated, getting crushed by a beginner like me?|
|I may have experience, but it's only a part of aristocratic etiquette.|
I grew up playing tennis together with other high-class kids. It's not like I play tennis because I like it! So, I’m not frustrated at all! I’m just holding back since Sena-senpai is a beginner, that’s all!
|Oh, really? You don’t have to go easy on me, you know. This kind of exercise can’t even help with digestion. Here…you…go!|
|Nyah?! Don’t hit it that hard! I can feel my hands go numb just from returning it!|
|You sure complain a lot. Move your legs, not your mouth. It’s a lot of work aiming the ball to where you can just barely return it, you know? Just to keep up a mere rally. If I get serious, it’ll be all over in an instant. Try harder, get a move on~|
|Y-you savage…! Damn it… Don’t make me run so much! I hate getting all sweaty!|
|I don’t have anything to do with your sweating. You see, I haven’t been moving that much, so I ended up getting pretty cold. Here you go~|
|Jeez. Instead of the tennis club, I should’ve joined the broadcasting club. I haven’t been able to see Yuu-kun, so the stress keeps building up…|
|Aughh, don’t take it out on me! If you like that glasses guy so much, why don’t you two just become members of the same ‘unit’? By that, I mean that nasty “Trickstar”. And then, my unit---“fine”, will crush you too! You might destroy me in tennis, but I’ll get my revenge as an idol!|
|You act like you’re hot stuff, even though you’re just piggybacking on someone else’s power. But, I don’t hate your twisted guts. As for me, I’d rather not be part of a unit the student council’s weirdly fixated on. I don’t have to get that attached to “Knights”, and it’s better that way. Rather, I want to save Yuu-kun from “Trickstar”… Since I’m the best person to make Yuu-kun shine the brightest.|
|Aren’t you hated because of that pushy attitude of yours? A man’s jealousy, how unsightly! *giggle* An unloved person is so pitiful…!|
|Oww?! You aimed for my face on purpose, didn’t you?|
|How could a beginner like me have that kind of skill? It’s coincidence, just a coincidence~|
|Seriously! I’ll sue you! Even though you can’t compensate for my cute face, no matter how much money you have!|
|It’s only an accident during practice~ Calm down, calm down~|
|I know that was on purpose! Hmph. Getting hit by a tennis ball really hurts! What if it gets all swelled up? So, how about you go and join the broadcasting committee? That glasses guy looks like he puts in more effort there, right?|
|Hmm… If I just barge into a place he holds dear with dirty shoes, I feel like he’ll get angry for real… That’s not what I want at all. You can see how little effort he puts into the tennis club. He didn't even complain when I joined. But that's also why I never see Yuu-kun... Oh boy, what a dilemma.|
|You’re like a maiden in love… None of my business, though. Hurry up and serve already! I’ll wipe the floor with you, to the point where you won’t be able to defy me anymore!|
|Sure, sure. …Thanks for always hearing me out. Thanks to Momo-kun, I feel like there’s a weight off my shoulders, even for a little.|
|Hmm? You say something?|
|Nooothing. Okay, here I go. This time, instead of going forward and back, let’s try going left to right~|
|I told you not to make me run so much! Seriously, I’m your senior in tennis! You’re so cheeky. Get ready!|
