PSYCHO SOLDIER TEAM STORY

°»Long time, no see°ń Things going all right with you, Athena?°…

 Shii Kensu, having trained under Chin Gentsai°«s tutelage this past year, is back.
 His face fiercely taut, his body tempered like steel, his body beefed up for action. His psycho power more polished than ever.
Those he passes on the street cannot help looking back at this very model of a warrior°ń

 °ńthinks Shii Kensu alone, no real change in his appearance being all that noticeable.
 Nevertheless, since his self-confidence has slightly improved, it appears his attitude is a little more majestic than usual.
 Athena is slated to arrive shortly at the pension where they will train for KOF.
 Kensu strains to pull some large obects and a small paper box packed with pork dumplings as a treat for everyone and be the first to arrive.

°»Pork dumplings°ń°…

 A girl sits on the ground cradling her knees, looking small and quiet.
 Her gaze slides to the box of pork dumplings as Kensu raises it. Testing her, the girls gaze shifts to the right as he moves it right. To the left as he moves it left.
 Clothed in a loosely fitting outfit, her puffy hair is tied with a peach-colored ribbon. Her big eyes but part of her youthful features and her age is in the vicinity of a sixth-grader.

°∆Neeeeeeeeeeeeeee.°«
 One almost gets the impression you can hear the sound her gaze gives off.
 Kensu weighed in his mind the girl and the pork dumpling box a few times then sighed with regret.


 Ę® Ę®


°»My name is Shii Kensu, but you can call me Kensu.°…
°»I°«m Momoko!°…

 Holding the big pork dumpling with both hands, Momoko energetically introduces herself as she gobbles down her treat. °ńPerhaps she°«s a fourth grader?°…

°»Hmm, Momo-chan, is it? Are you lost, Momo-chan?°…
°»Don°«t call me Momo-chan!°…

 Momoko strongly objects. It°«s just that she doesn°«t know where her house is.
(Wouldn°«t that mean you°«re lost?)
 Kensu suppresses his comeback, leading him to think that evinces, in some way, his emotional growth.

°»So, whereabouts is your house? Is there some sort of landmark nearby?°…
°»Let me see. There are three big cherry trees in a park near my house.°…
°»You don°«t say? That°«s right by where I°«m heading. Well, shall I take you there?°…
°»Yeee-eah!°…

 The sky on the outskirts of town is clear and the weather fine.
 Nothing wrong with a little walk. And I can also treat myself to a nice little chat.

°»°ńSo, anyway, this girl°«s an idol, but she°«s totally hot on me.°…
°»Hmmmm.°…

 Climbing over the gently sloping hill they spy the well-kept lawn of the small park.
 Three old cherry trees stand there, and were it spring, they°«d be quite a sight to behold.

°»She never tells me she°«s an idol, but I°«ve caught on to her.°…
°»Is that so?°…
°»She°«s nowhere near my level, but she is a force to be reckoned with.°…
°»Yeah, I know, she°«s been in KOF.°…
°»O-of course! You°«ve done your homework!°…

 Kensu, his mood improved, was now talking up a storm.
 Each year we always top the list of possible winners, but that old alcoholic keeps insisting on joining every year so we, thanks to that albatross around our necks we often come up short. Yeah, my covering for him helps, but even a so-called Psycho Soldier genius like me can only do so much. Then there°«s the kid and panda to consider, talk about rough. You probably don°«t know about them, but my life sure is no picnic!

°»Ah! It°«s Athena!°…
°»°ńSay what?°…

°»Momo! Just where did you run off to?°…

 Athena Asamiya, who had been in the park, begins to run towards them.
 And Momoko, too, bolts from Kensu°«s side to energetically embrace her in greeting.

°»I was so worried°ń Oh, Kensu, too? What°«s up?°…
°»°ńWe haven°«t seen each other for a year, you know. That°«s harsh, Athena.°…

 During his training in a far-off land he had eagerly awaited this moment, but Kensu now scowled at having his various hopes for this reunion ruined. And what was up with the kid, anyway?

°»Let me introduce you. This is Momoko, who at the recommendation of the Master is going to enter KOF with us.°…
°»°ńCome again?°…
 °»We°«ve already completed the provisional entry. You, Momoko, and I are going to be the New Psycho Soldier Team!°…
 New? What°«s this °»new°… stuff? He knew that the Psycho Soldier Team sat last year°«s tournament out, but what did this all mean°Ĺwhy not the Master, or Bao?
°»No, I mean°ńYou we went through this with Bao, but was our only choice some grade-schooler, and to top it all of a girl? I think the Master has finally gone senile.°…
°»Hey, I°«m no grade-schooler!°…
°»Then you must be in junior high, huh? I°«m certain about that°ń°…
°»I°«m in high school!°…
°»In high school?! Get out of here! At any rate this girl who looks like a grade-school student in a violent tournament like KOF°ń°…
°»You did it again! Grade-schooler! I am not in grade school!°…

 With this Momoko ended her objections and flashed Kensu a °»gotcha°… grin somewhat akin to a high school student.

°»Hey, hey, Athena.°…
°»Yes?°…
°»I heard you were an °∆idol?°«°…
°»That°«s right. That°«s how I put food on my table. What about it?°…
°»You°«re also head over heals in love with Kensu, aren°«t you?°…
°»Fooo-ha!°…

 Kensu coughed as if he had been drinking water that went down the wrong pipe.
 He had realized what this naŹęŃf was now talking about.

°»And Kensu is a °∆Psycho Soldier Genius,°« isn°«t he?°…
°»°ńH-he just may be.°…
°»Is the Master really an °∆alkee-holic°« and an °∆albatross?°«°…
°»B-beats me.°…
°»Do you think Kaoru is °∆creepy°« and a °∆pain in the neck?°«°…
°»°ńUh, Kensu, may I have a word with you?°…
°»H-hold on. Now just hold on, Athena. This is not like it may seem°ń°…

 The next week, KOF applied for formal entry into the KOF tournament.
 Among the names for their team was listed Athena Asamiya, Momoko, and Kensu, the Psycho Soldier Genius.
