"Maruyama-saaaaaaaan!"

Momoka wanted to hide when she and her friends finally reached the spot where Tomomi and his group of friends were sitting. Reina, Chiharu, and Aimi were louder than ever and ready to embarrass their blushing friend.

"Eh? Momoka...?" Tomomi turned around looking surprised. He smiled when he saw Momoka and her friends were carrying their lunches.

"Good! The girls have come to join us!" Tadashi folded his arms behind his head. He finished chewing the last of his lunch and eyed the girls' bentos hungrily.

"Is that true?" Tomomi watched Momoka silently and the excited boys hushed to hear her answer. Momoka's cheeks turned red and she looked fidgety. When she saw the expectant sparkles in Tomomi's eyes, she gave up and nodded quietly.

"Good! We'd be happy to have you join us!"Tadashi folded his arms behind his head. He finished chewing the last of his lunch and eyed the girls' bentos hungrily.

"All I ate were chips! Somebody help me!"

"Ehhhh?! Eating lunch with girls?"

"Is that true?" Tomomi watched Momoka silently and the excited boys hushed to hear her answer. Momoka's cheeks turned red and she looked fidgety. When she saw the expectant sparkles in Tomomi's eyes, she gave up and nodded quietly.

"Good! We'd be happy to have you join us!" Tomomi waved them over, his smile brighter than ever. He was really excited to eat lunch with Momoka.

"Really? It's not a bother?" Momoka's eyes went wide. She came over to sit next to Tomomi when he motioned for her to.

"Of course not!"

"Namida-San, you're too nice." A boy with wild red hair grinned widely. His lunch was already gone, but his stomach was growling over everyone's voices.

"Hehe, somebody's hungry." Reina commented.

"I'm trying to go on a diet. Coach says if I keep eating like I do, I won't be able to make any shots in the game."

"Eh? That doesn't sound right! If you're hungry, then eat! Eating gives you energy, you see. As long as you eat the right foods."

"Oh is that so?"

"Yep! Here, I have to maintain my figure, so I have a small appetite. You can have my salmon rice balls..."

While Reina and the red haired guy named Ryou get better acquainted, Momoka noticed her 2 friends were chatting with the other three of Tomomi's.

"So, who suggested a group lunch?" Tomomi asks, eyeing Momoka's bento. She take a bite of her food and chews thoughtfully. Eating like this right now was so peaceful, she hoped everyone would just forget the real problem for now.

But they wouldn't.....she already knew.

"Um, Reina did." Momoka whispers.

"Oh, really? You seemed pretty shy about it..."

"That's because I didn't want to tell you about the text message probl--oh."

While Tomomi eyes Momoka curiously, the group silences. Reina stops sharing her lunch with Ryo and jumps to her feet.

"That's right! I nearly forgot!"

"Oh yeah! Tomomi, it's time for you to be heroic!" Chiharu said dramatically. Aimi giggled me Momoka covered her face.

"What happened? There was a problem?" Tomomi furrowed his brow and Momoka sighed when she realized everyone was expecting HER to tell him.

"Um....just a jealous fan of yours got ahold of my number, that's all."
