WOMEN FIGHTERS TEAM STORY

Yuri and Mai sit on a couple of chairs on the train platform. They appear to be in the middle of an argument.

YURI:
"Aw, come on, Mai. Are you still angry?"
MAI:
"Why did he boot me off the team? I can't believe it! Oh, Andy!"
YURI:
"He said that he had to let Mary on the team for her to complete the job she had, so what are you going to do?"
MAI:
"What are you going to do? If it were that simple, than why would you need a cop on your team?"
YURI:
"Don't take it out on me, Mai. More important, if we don't get cracking and find some new team members quickly we'll run out of time."
MAI:
"I know, I know! There's nothing we can do so we have to make another team!"
YURI:
"Geez, why are you getting all snippy with me?"

Yuri eyes dart around the surroundings as she gets off one last shot.

MAI:
"Hey, Yuri. Are you expecting someone?"
YURI:
"Heh, heh. I just got an idea about a possible team member."
MAI:
"Really? Who is it?"

As Mai finishes her question, a train slides up to the platform.
YURI:
"Ah, this is the train. She's supposed to be on board."

POOH-SHAW!
The train comes to a stop and the passengers file out. Among them is a young woman dressed in a traditional style that seems out of place and carrying an umbrella.

MAI:
"Hey, isn't that...?!"
YURI:
"Heeey! Kasumi-eee! Over here, over here!"
KASUMI:
"Oh, Yuri-eeee!"
MAI:
"Why if it isn't the girl who traveled 12,000 kilometers to see her father."
YURI:
"Hey, back off, Mai. ...Ah, Kasumi. It's been ages."
KASUMI:
"It sure has. Thank you for inviting me onto your team."
MAI:
"Hello, Kasumi. So you found your father, I take it?"
YURI:
"Mai! Put a sock in it, would you?! I'm sorry. Mai's a little touchy now. Pay her no mind, okay? So, since you're here, all we have to do is find one more member."
KASUMI:
"Yeah, speaking of that, I have an idea!"
MAI/YURI:
"An idea?"
"Hey, this is an audition hall, isn't it?"
A young girl obviously the product of well-bred family, gets out of a posh car in front a Japanese-style mansion.
On the gate to the house is a sign written in large letters, WAY OF TODOH DOJO-GYM.
The woman walks briskly through the gate and enters the mansion.

YURI:
"Whoo!"
MAI:
"Well, Yuri, did you find any good candidates?"
Yuri plops herself down on a piped chair while she wipes the sweat from her with a towel.
YURI:
"How did it go...I don't mean any disrespect to you, Kasumi, but no one really had what it takes, Mai. I hope it all works out, though, and we can find another teammate."
KASUMI:
"Really...I thought that a general audition for a teammate wouldn't be such a bad idea, but...Mary helped me when I last tried it, and I think she used something called the Intertrap to do it."
MAI:
"That's Internet. Yeah! Yeah! So just why does someone like Mary have to join Andy's team anyway! Geesh! ...I got it! It's a conspiracy, a conspiracy carried out by this year's sponsor! The harmonious relationship I had with Andy was too much for them!"
YURI:
"Not again, Mai...I told you to put a sock in it. ...But if this is the way it's going to be, I wish I hadn't introduced King to Ryo and the gang."
KASUMI:
"I guess that's true, but, for the time being, there are still people waiting at the general auditions, so let's get on with it? Yuri?"
YURI:
"Yeah, you're right. For the time being, there are those who've come to be on our team, so we should really meet them."
MAI:
"OK, next!"

The next contestant enters the practice hall. She's the person who had gotten out of that posh care shortly before.
"Hello, my name is Hinako Shijo. It's a pleasure to meet you."
All three rise up as she enters and their jaws drop to the floor.
She has blond hair, an elegant and charming face, and a sailor uniform that seems like that of a high school student to boot.
It appears that a girl who has nothing to do with the martial arts is standing before them.
MAI:
"Uh, excuse me, Hinako, is it? So you'd like to enter this year's KOF tournament, would you?"
HINAKO:
"Yes. By all means I'm hoping you will grant me the opportunity to audition for the open position on your team. The honor to be here is all mine."
YURI:
"Um, have you ever participated in a fighting tournament before, Hinako?"
HINAKO:
"No, this is my first time."
YURI:
"Ah, oh, let's see...(Mai! She's a freaken' amateur!)"
MAI:
"(I know!) So, well...uh, yeah. Well then, I know it's a bit sudden but would you care to spar with Yuri here?"
YURI:
"Say what?! (I'm not going to be the one to slap some silly kid around!)"
MAI:
"(If you show her the difference in our abilities, she'll run right on home!)"
KASUMI:
"(And it would be just plain rude to send her on her merry way without giving her a chance.)"
HINAKO:
"Uh, is there a problem here?"
YURI:
"Uh...no, no problem. Well, then, shall we have a little match then?"
HINAKO:
"Yes, please."

The match begins.

At that moment Hinako immediately begins to stamp the ring to warm up.
MAI/KASUMI: "What the...?! Ah! That pose...!! It can't be!"
YURI:
"S-Sumo?!"
Seeing a chance for an attack, Hinako stomps down on the canvas and lunges toward Yuri.
YURI:
"(Oh, Oh no! She's got my waist!)"
MAI/YURI: "Aaaaaah!!!"
And the moment Yuri becomes aware of her predicament, Yuri goes falling to the mat.
MAI/KASUMI: "An overarm body slam!"
Hinako's sumo moves are masterfully applied to Yuri.

MAI:
"N-No way...."
KASUMI:
"Wow! You tossed Yuri on her caboose in no time!"

HINAKO:
"How did I do?"
The serious look in her eyes during the match has already vanished, giving way to her unassuming visage.

MAI:
"W-We got a good idea of your abilities. I just have a question for you: why do you want to enter the KOF tournament?"
HINAKO:
"Uh-huh. If I go into to much detail it would become quite a long story, but if I win a well-known tournament, the school that I go to says that they would help me make a sumo team at my school, so I thought KOF would be the perfect opportunity."
MAI:
"Uh, huh.... (I'm not sure I'm following her, but I really think we've hit paydirt this time...but there sure is a gap between her style of combat and her looks, isn't there...?)"
HINAKO:
"If we're able to win the KOF tournament, I won't have to practice alone anymore. I wonder how many people would sign up? And I'll have to get the school to make a suitable training gym, too. Maybe that space at the right of the school gym...?"
YURI:
"Uh, Mai...She seems to be getting all worked up alone over there...."
KASUMI:
"But she's really something. With a body like that, what refined technique! And she must be the same age as I am, so it looks like she'll make a fine teammate! I want her on the team."
YURI:
"That's fine with me. I'm a little humiliated that she could throw me so quickly, though...."
MAI:
"Y-Yeah, she's a bit naive, though, isn't she? But she does have ability...Uh, Hinako?"
HINAKO:
"And I'll have them make a window with a beautiful view of the hill outside...Uh, yes? Did you call me?"
MAI:
"We'd like to welcome you as the new member of our team. We're looking forward to having you with us."
HINAKO:
"Yes! Thank you so much. I won't let you down, and I look forward to receiving your kind guidance. Whooo-hoo!"
