'The Galactic Federation, planets, galaxies, everyone is fighting to protect the same thing.'
"Lieu!" A cry from the stands, echoing and bringing to mind a cherished memory.
'There's only one thing I want to protect...!'
Stunned silence shrouded the atmostphere as a thick fog after Lieu single handedly defeated the other team in a matter of seconds. No one was more surprised than the marten's own teammates. The crowds began to murmur in undertones.
"Lieu!" The same voice again giggled from the balcony, drawing Lieu's attention. "Good job!"

The practice match over both teams began to make their retreat. Liida and Enli both wanted to ask Lieu about what just happened, but there was such an aura of absolute maturity about him that dumbfounded them both. Was this really Lieu?
Outside the stadium the marten began to part ways with the two. Before Liida could stop him the same girl from the balcony rushed down a flight of stairs and glomped Lieu. When the blushing marten hugged her back Liida and Enli felt suddenly out of place.
"So that's it..."
"He has a girlfriend..."
"Who would have thought..."
Could the day hold any more surprises?
