❝ Well, I can’t argue with a blitzball star. ❞
❝ Looks like I’ll have to find something else to do until then. ❞
”No worries! Ya still got me! Even though I can’t teach ya just yet, we can still hang out!”
❝ —— So is that a ‘no?’ ❞
It feels like a full circle. Perhaps she should think up some threats this time.
”Nah, it’s not a no! It’s more of a ‘in a little while’. An’ trust me when it gets warm enough to be in the water, you’ll be my star pupil, okay?”
❝ —— Oh.❞
She scrambles to stand.
❝ That’s okay. Teach me how to play. I want to be an expert when the next season rolls around. ❞
He laughs easily before his head shakes.
”It’s not really easy to teach one on one! ‘Sides, we gotta play in the water. Blitzball on the regular ground hurts.”
❝ —— You know, I can believe it.
❝ I'm pretty hard to embarrass, too, so I guess you're right. It'll be great. ❞
”That’s the spirit! Too bad my next game isn’t for awhile though. Ya got me all pumped to play but Blitz is outta season!”
❝ Don’t sound so excited! I don’t know much about the game, you know. You might not want me out there.
❝ What if I embarrass you? ❞
"Nah! I’ll teach ya anythin’ ya need to know! Plus, I’m pretty hard to embarrass! Trust me, it’ll be great!"
