Mistakes and Misunderstanding's
Morning tennis practise could not come fast enough. At least not for Echizen Ryoma, that is. As he made his way onto the school grounds, he only had one goal in mind;
Retrieve and secure his iPod from his curious and above all, nosy senpai.
Nearing the clubroom, he could hear the telltale signs that his senpai had already arrived. Let's just say they were very loud whispers. Or maybe it was their goal to alert everyone on the school grounds, that they were trying to hide Echizen Ryoma's iPod, before he arrived.
"Mada mada dane," He whispered under his breath, opening the clubroom door and stepping inside.
The minute he entered, the clubroom went silent. Well almost silent anyway, Eiji let out a high-pitched squeak and ran to hide behind Oishi, who looked just as much, if not more nervous than Eiji.
Ryoma stood in the doorway, arms crossed and eyes narrowed. Everyone who was present, were frozen stiff and staring at him with wide, nervous eyes.
"Give it back," Ryoma demanded, noticing the way all his Senpai jumped, at being so easily called out.
"Nya give what back? We don't have your-" Eiji was once again cut off by Fuji, who placed one of his hands over the red head's mouth.
"What are you talking about?" Fuji asked, tilting his head to the side. Anyone who didn't know the tensai, would have thought that Fuji looked as innocent as innocent could be. Ryoma however, knew different.
"Give me my iPod back, Senpai," He demanded once again. All around him, his Senpai fidgeted nervously. All except for Fuji, who refused to back down.
"You lost your iPod?" Fuji gave a gasp of surprise, shaking his head in mock disappointment. "How unfortunate. Maybe you should keep a better track of your things?" He suggested, ignoring the murderous glare sent his way from Ryoma.
Ryoma paused, trying to think of the worst threats he could come up with. "Give me my iPod back Fuji-Senpai, or else I'll tell Buchou."
For a split second Ryoma could have sworn, he saw a flash of hesitation fly through Fuji's open eyes, before his eyes were once again closed. "I was telling you the truth when I said I don't have it," Fuji explained.
Ryoma's eyes scanned the rest of his Senpai, all of which looked way to nervous.
Kawamura was pretending to browse through his things, whistling as he went.
Oishi and Eiji were talking about getting ice-cream after school. Except they weren't talking, they were somewhere between a shout and a nervous stutter; blushing beat red the entire time.
Kaidoh was sitting on the bench, leaning down to 'tie' up his shoe. Which by the way, was already tied in a perfect bow.
Inui was standing off to the side, scribbling furiously down in his notebook.
Lastly there was Momo, his best friend. Momoshiro was standing in the corner of the clubroom, looking sheepishly down at his feet as he whistled nervously. A light blush covered his cheeks. It was obvious he was the most guilty looking of them all.
This is in turn, caused Ryoma's piercing glare to land on Momo, who flinched in response.
"H-hey Echizen." Momoshiro stuttered,eyes nervously looking from side to side.
Before Ryoma had time to say anything, the door to the clubroom was opened. In the doorway stood Tezuka, scowl etched on his face. "Practise started five minutes ago, 20 laps for being late." When no one moved, Tezuka's glare intensified. "Now."
"But-" Echizen began to protest.
"Make that 30 laps."
Instantly everyone took off running, most of them ignoring the glares sent their way from Ryoma.
Tezuka shook his head. Since when had his tennis team gotten so lazy? He would have to make sure to stick to a super strict training plan. By no means would they lose the Nationals do to being lazy. He would make sure of that.
Making a mental note to ask Inui to double their training, he was about to shut the clubroom door, when something shiny in the corner of the clubroom caught his eye. He walked over to it and picked it up, carefully examining it in his hands.
The small iPod was in fairly good condition. He stuffed it in the pocket of his jacket, making another mental note to ask Inui if he knew of anyone in the tennis club that had recently lost an iPod. He also made a mental note to scold whoever had so poorly taken care of said iPod, so carelessly leaving it on the ground where it could be stolen.
Making sure everything in the clubroom was in order, he shut the door and headed out to supervise practise.
Ryoma irritably slammed his books onto his desk. He ignored the looks of surprise he received from his classmates. Not only had he NOT managed to retrieve his iPod from his teammates, but because of them, he had had to run thirty laps and Tezuka had doubled their training.
The rest of class, he sat silently fuming. When the bell rang, he was about to head up to the roof, when he ran into Oishi, who was walking with Eiji.
"What is it Oishi-Senpai?" He asked, glaring up at his senpai, who didn't even seem to notice.
"Now Echizen, you know as your senpai we're always there for you right?" Oishi asked.
Ryoma raised an eyebrow. "Yes?"
"You also know, that if you ever need to talk about certain things," Oishi paused, putting extra emphasis on the word things. Eiji stood beside him, giving him a thumbs up and a nod every now and then. "That you could come to us. We could always give you advice if you any problems, or questions. Remember, it's better to be safe than sorry."
"Sure, Oishi Senpai," Ryoma replied, not really sure what he was agreeing to, but deciding it was worth it if Oishi would just stop talking already.
"Great," Oishi positively beamed with happiness at the thought of getting through to th freshman.
"Nya, Ochibi is growing up so fast!" Eiji exclaimed,lunging at the freshman with arms wide open. He, however fell flat on his face as Ryoma dodged to the left.
"Mada mada dane, Senpai," He smirked, quickly making an escape to the stairs which would lead to the roof. He classmates had begun to stare and he wanted to leave before his Senpai-tachi could embarrass him any farther.
Once safely on the roof, he took a seat against the wall and opened his bento. He was just about to take his first bite when the door to the roof opened and Momo walked over to him. He let out an exasperated sigh. Was it too much to ask for a little peace and quiet so he could eat his lunch.
"Oi Echizen," Momo took a seat infront of him and Ryoma quickly grabbed his Bento, shielding it from the power player.
"You're not getting any of my lunch Momo-Senpai," He stated bluntly, eyes narrowing.
Momo laughed. "That's not why I'm here."
"What do you want?" Ryoma all but growled, Momo only rubbed the back of his head.
"You know, Coach Ryuzaki's granddaughter is quite attractive, especailly for a freshman," Momo explained.
Ryom stared up at his Senpai, eyebrow raised in disbelief. "If Senpai says so..." He decided to go along with Momo, who was obviously very delusioned or just plain perverted.
"Nice figure, play tennis, very cute." Momo rambled on, causing Ryoma to send him another look.
"I never pegged Momo-senpai as that kind of guy," Ryoma stated, getting to his feet.
"Nani! I just meant- I didn't- I - I didn't mean it like that," Momo exclaimed, blush rising to his cheeks until his entire face was beat red.
"Momo-senpai's a pervert," Ryoma smirked, heading to the door.
"Echizen! Wait up! That's not what I meant!" Momo ran towards Ryoma, but he had already disappeared around the door.
"Mada mada dane Momo-senpai," Ryoma called, before disappearing down the stairs, leaving a beat red Momo behind.
"Echizen! Wait up!" Momo called, heading down the stairs after the freshman.
