FATAL FURY TEAM STORY

°»Hooray for Kim!°…
°»We°«re rooting for you!°…

 Kim and Terry are waiting in the airport lobby while Chan and Choi serenade them with feigned, no two-faced and half-hearted cheers.
 This unprecedented combination was arrived at by a series of twists and turns.
 When Mai, irritated at Andy°«s repeated absences and tired of acceding with the usual °»Well, if you two have to enter together, then I suppose it°«s OK°…, proactively insisted on taking a vacation with him during the period scheduled for KOF, Joe Higashi also took himself out of the running because it overlapped with the Muetai title match. Tizoc, who had joined the team last year, had already entered on another team, provoking Andy to think outside the box.
 Just then, as if Heaven-sent, a possible candidate nonchalantly waddled walked by.
°»Terry, is that you? You sure have changed.°…
 Clad in his usually flashy attire and wearing sunglasses, Duck flashed his familiar Mohican hair style, unique gait, and affable mood.
 This reunion with Southtown°«s minor celebrity Duck King gave Terry the feeling that light was at the end of the tunnel. Even more:
°»KOF? Great, I°«m in. Just the thing to take me out of this current bout of boredom. ĘŲ°…
 Having secured his assent then and there, the harsh features of Duck°«s face, in Terry°«s eyes, underwent a miraculous change and he was looking into the face of God.
°»Well, Terry, what about the other guy? You need a team of three for KOF, don°«t you?°…
°»Well, I have one possibility°ń°…

 Terry intended to rely on the better nature of the Korean Team led by Kim.
 Since Choi Bounge had sat out last year°«s tournament owing to the participation of Jhun Hoon, it stood to reason a little shake-up this year would do no harm.
 This year, however, Jhun was not scheduled to enter, so the breaking up the team might prove a little°ńchallenging.

°»Tsk, tsk. If you can get Kim to join, then, that°«d solve everything, right?°…
°»If Kim agrees to join our team, I could rest a lot easier, but that°«s probably impossible.°…
°»Really? Why?°…
°»It would put Chan and Choi on the sidelines. They°«ve trained for KOF all this time. They°«d be crushed if we knocked them out of the picture.°…

 Duck made an exaggerated shrug of the shoulders: what am I gonna do with this guy?
°»Uh, Terry, just think this through.°…
°»? Uh, OK.°…
°»Aren°«t Kim°«s two disciples taking the initiative and joining KOF on their own?°…
°»°ń °ń°…
°»Well?°…


 Ę® Ę®


°»Go Terry! Go Duck! Hooray!°…
°»We know you°«re gonna win, all rightey!°…

 In contrast to the hesitant Kim when this matter was broached, Chan and Choi were at the point of dancing a jig of full approval for Terry°«s proposal.
 Naturally even now they°«re completely being it.
°»Master Kim, sometimes you have to strike out on your own to take on higher level contests.°…
°»Rightey-oh. That way we can train with a long-range plan toward the next KOF.°…
 The two had not forgotten to embellish and justify their own sentiments. Even now when the three had boarded the plane they celebrated their departure and heaped on their praises as they waved a tiny flag.
 Whatever he knew of the two, if Kim had wanted to find fault, he would be unable to even find even an inkling.

°»Well, no °∆education°« or °∆rehabilitation°« this time, eh? A little disappointed?°…
°»Not at all. Ha, ha, ha°ń°…

 His usual refreshing grin, too, somehow lacked its keenness.
 At this rate would he be able to give 100 percent during the tournament°ń?
 Terry came up with a plan and nudged Kim with his elbow. He hushed the tone of his voice so Duck, sitting on the other side of Kim, could not here what he was about to say.
°»Hey, Kim. It°«s about Duck, but I wonder if his future is OK, being who he is and all.°…
°»°ń °ń°…
°»I mean, if you think about his future, KOF may be just the opportunity to provide him with a little °∆rehabilitation,°« don°«t you think?°…
°»Yeah, I see°ńYou sure have got a point there, Terry.°…

 Kim regained some of his old zeal, and folded his arms to consider the possibilities.
 Now came Duck°«s turn to nudge Kim from the other side.
°»You know, Kim, I°«ve been thinking,°… he whispered, °»about Terry. Just how long do you think he can keep up that jobless vagabond routine? I worry as a friend, mind you.°…
°»°ń °ń°…
°»I think you, Kim, are just the guy to °∆educate°« him about a life more meaningful, eh?°…
°»Yeah, I see°ń You sure have got a point there, Duck.°…

 Kim became even more high-spirited.
 He flexed his crossed arms.
 With this new sense of purpose as he looked toward KOF, he was unmistakably on his way to gradually reaching the top of his game.
 The airplane carrying Terry, Kim, and Duck soared up into the Southtown sky.


 Ę® Ę®


°»°ńThey°«re gone, big guy!°…
°»Yup.°…
°»Those two have no idea what lies in store for them with Kim in their grills, do they?°…
°»Not a clue.°…
°»I°«m kinda looking forward to see how their °∆rehabilitated°« when they get back.°…

°»°ń °ń°…
°»°ń °ń°…
°»I°«m getting a tad misty without him around.°…
°»Yeah, just a tad.°…
