Previous Chapter | Awakening-TBC | Next Chapter


Suddenly, a strange boy appeared on the basketball court, and he all of a sudden grabbed Akio Okada by the neck, which made everyone present extremely surprised.

“Fighting in the court? Where do you think this is?” A player said in a loud voice.

At this time, other players quickly rushed over to their side.

Lei Yin ignored them, turning away, he looked at Akio Okada, and coldly said, “Did Narimura Haruko told you to hurt my sister?” As he spoke, Lei Yin mixed in some of his qi, which made Akio Okada’s mind to be in chaos.

For a moment, Akio Okada thought that he saw some strange light in Lei Yin’s eyes, and after seeing that light, he felt tired and unable to think properly.

“Narimura Haruko asked me to do it, she said that….” Akio Okada said something that even he didn’t dare think he would do.

“Very good.” Lei Yin didn’t bother to listen anymore. He sneered and restored his vision, and dragged him outside.

The answer was as he had expected. When he had asked Takeda on the phone about this man, he immediately knew that the accident was caused by one of Narimura Haruko’s powerful suitors. so, he began to suspect that this guy may have been ordered by that woman to go hit Kazumi. At that time, he was still a bit unsure whether that woman would really do such a silly thing. But in any case, this guy still pushed Kazumi, and afterwards, walked away without apologizing to her, which made Lei Yin very pissed. The only difference was that, if this guy had truly intended to, he would have seriously harmed her.

As he took a few steps, several players immediately stopped him.

“What do you want? Hurry up, and let go of him.” A player who seemed to be the team captain appeared before Lei Yin, and using his nearly two-meter-tall body, he blocked Lei Yin.

“Go away. I have something, I want to talk with this guy.” In order to prevent Okada Akio from struggling, Lei Yin sealed his internal force using acupuncture. And he quickly seized the No. 5 player’s throat, who was already unable to use his full strength.

“This is the basketball club’s court, and not for people like you to come and fight. Quickly release him, and get out of here.” If it weren’t for him being afraid to cause a scene, then the big guy would have already used his fist and hit him.

“I’ll say it one more time, immediately leave before I get mad.” If Takeda or Yoshikawa were here, it would have been very clear to them, just by looking at Lei Yin’s eyes, that the situation was going to become extremely dangerous.

At the same time, the onlookers who saw this were talking among themselves.

“That person looks familiar.”

“Idiot, that’s Gennai Masashi. My God, what does he want to do this time?”

“He really is a human weapon, what does he want to do with my man?” a female student almost fainted.

“It seems like the basketball club didn’t offend him, but then why is he holding Okada’s neck?”

“This time, it looks like they will have a good play.” A male student gloated.

And, several people in the basketball court, continued their fight.

But, at that moment, Lei Yin’s patience had finally reached its limit. He was too lazy to say anything, so he dragged Akio Okada and walked around the captain as the two-meter-tall person looked down at him.

Those players who stood in front of him simply didn’t know, that so long as they try to stop him, their fate will become miserable.

“Bastard, I told you to let go of him.” The team captain flew into rage, and rushed towards him.

Lei Yin just sneered, as he moved and suddenly appeared in front of him, when suddenly a strong voice called out, “What exactly is happening?”

“coach” The team captain immediately stopped and bowed towards the middle-aged man standing at the doorway. The other players also bowed towards him.

“I just went out for a while, for it to become such a mess, can anyone tell me exactly what had happened?” The coach walked up to several of the players, and yelled at them. The female manager behind him jumped up in surprise, as the coach was calling for her.

“Coach Tanimura, this person wanted to cause trouble, and I’m just about to drive him out.” The team captain replied.

From the start when he had arrived, the middle-aged man had been watching Lei Yin. He then shouted at the Lei Yin who was making trouble, “I don’t care who you are, but you’re not welcome here, leave.”

“Excuse me, I’ll go.” Lei Yin was surprisingly obedient, but when he was about to walk out, his hand was still grabbing the No. 5 player.

“What do you want, immediately let him go, or I’ll notify the Student Union.” Coach Tanimura couldn’t ignore such behavior, so he immediately stepped in front of Lei Yin, and shouted.

If it were those players doing this, then Lei Yin would have already smashed them down. But this guy was after all a teacher, he also didn’t want to be the first student to beat a faculty member in Teikyo University and get expelled from school. So he said to the man in the jersey, “I just want to have a word with Okada student, so please don’t stop me.”

“If you just want to talk, then why are you seizing him by his neck? I’ll warn you once, immediately release him, or I’ll call the student union to deal with this matter.” Coach Tanimura said resentfully.

It seems like now isn’t the good time to get revenge. Lei Yin shrugged, letting go of the No. 5 player who wasn’t able to breath.

Just as Akio Okada was released, he immediately gasped for breath, but found it very hard as he felt a burning sensation on his throat.

“Okada student, we still haven’t finished our talk, so I’ll be patiently waiting for you to come out.” Lei Yin said with a smile.

“You bastard, what do you actually want?” Akio Okada, who tried very hard to breath, pointed at Lie Yin and shouted at once.

“I can’t believe you’re so quick to forget what you had just said. Don’t worry, I’ll make you remember it again.”

Seeing Lei Yin’s expression, Coach Tanimura knew that he would absolutely not give up. And one day he would come here again, and possibly cause trouble. Right now, the basketball club was preparing for the upcoming summer tournament, so he didn’t want the team to get affected because of this incident.

“Although I don’t know what matter is between the two of you, but this is a basketball court, and if you agree, I hope that you can handle this matter in a civilized manner.”

After speaking these words, Coach Tanimura started to stated his own proposition.

After hearing his so-called proposition, Lei Yin said to Coach Tanimura, “Although I don’t mean to make fun of you Coach Tanimura, but don’t you think your idea is a little boring?”

“Bastard, what did you say?” The team captain, who was the person that most respected Coach Tanimura, immediately shouted.

As far as Lie Yin was concerned, he wasn’t trying to make fun of anyone. But, he had made fun of Coach Tanimura, and said to him expressionlessly, “Don’t tell me, you think this is just a fight? If your answer is yes, then I am sorry, I’m sorry to tell you that’s just pure ignorance. And The person who is ignorant, and is unable to use his brain properly will never understand anything if you don’t use actions to make him understand.”

“Coach Tanimura, you’re not supposed to be a basketball coach, but rather a critic. Because what you said is similar to critics using words to abuse politicians.”

“Since you want to be a hoodlum, then I have no other alternative. But this is the basketball court, and only people that play or watch the game are welcomed here, so please get out.” Coach Tanimura knew that what this person was saying was his own bloody belief.

Lei Yin didn’t say anything, and just looked at the audience and players glaring at him. He then suddenly laughed, “Maybe what you’re saying is a bit true, sometimes it’s better to use your own brain, I accept your proposition.”

Coach Tanimura’s eyes revealed a self-satisfied look, he said to Lei Yin, “I want you to promise, that if you lose, later you can’t come here to cause trouble again, and can’t look for Okada and trouble him again.”

“And if I win?”

“So long as you don’t cause trouble here, I won’t interfere in your matter again.”

“Then so be it, it’s a deal.” Lei Yin readily agreed.

“Do you want to change your shoes; I don’t want to hear you say that you lost because of your shoes.” Coach Tanimura looked at the shoes Lei Yin was wearing.

“No, I never wear someone else’s shoes, because I’m afraid that I’ll get infected by someone else’s foot.” Lei Yin told the truth.

Coach Tanimura didn’t blame him, he could only blame himself, ‘for asking to humiliate himself’. He quickly cheered up, and shouted at the players, “Quickly come in the court.”

Hearing the coach, who was obviously angry, the players sped up and immediately picked up the balls, putting them away, emptying the court.

“Do you have any problem, if I be the referee for this game? If you feel it’s unfair, you can choose someone else.” Coach Tanimura said.

“I don’t have any issue with it.”

“If that’s the case, then I ask you to quickly get in the court.”

Lei Yin shrugged, and walked towards the center of the basketball court. There, Okada Akio sneered from where he was standing.

Coach Tanimura was holding the basketball with one hand, and walked towards their side, “I’ll repeat the rules again, the score will be up to ten points, in ten minutes, the two sides will take turns attacking, there’s no rest time during the game, the side who first score ten points wins. If the two side haven’t scored ten points in ten minutes, then the side that has the most scores, WINS. Is there something that you can’t understand?”

After a while, seeing that both side didn’t said anything, Coach Tanimura immediately exclaimed, “Begin.” With that, he threw the ball into the air.

In the case of jump ball, Okada Akio, who was taller obviously had the advantage. He jumped up, and as expected caught the ball in midair.

The result was as he had expected. But he felt it was a bit strange, because just when he jumped for the ball, Lei Yin just stood there motionless and didn’t jump.

Maybe he knew that he couldn’t jump as high as me. Okada Akio thought to himself, and quickly dribbled to the opposite side of the basket.

A competition between two people just having half the court would be enough, but Coach Tanimura thought that Okada Akio was an official player, if he had won purely because of his basketball skills against the student causing trouble, he thought it wouldn’t be enough. So, he wanted to give Okada a chance to make Lei Yin realize that he lacked physical strength. He thought that Lei Yin likely didn’t exercise, so his physical fitness couldn’t be compared with that of a regular player’s. That’s why he had also made a rule to not let them rest during the competition.

In his view, this wasn’t simply a basketball game. He did this to stop students from coming here to make trouble. So he didn’t intend to conduct any unfair competition. An ordinary person playing against a basketball player in a basketball game, was itself quite unfair.

On the other hand, Okada Akio was very happy. He didn’t think that this fellow would comply and compete against him at his own game. He really wanted to beat this guy, and make him lose face. Haruko, see how I’ll beat this guy.

Thinking of this, he quickly dribbled under the basket. And at the same time he heard footsteps coming from behind him.

It seems like this guy isn’t slow, but what’s the point?

He suddenly stopped, and stood in front of the two-point line, and just when Okada Akio prepared to shoot, he suddenly felt that his hands were empty, and found that the ball was gone?

He was startled, immediately turning his head, he unexpectedly saw the ball in Lei Yin’s hand. Lei Yin had taken it without him realizing it.

After Lei Yin grabbed the ball, he didn’t immediately rush to the other side, but instead dribble as he waited for him. And finally with his left hand, he dribbled the ball through his legs.

Feeling belittled, the No. 5 player screamed in his mind, and immediately rushed to the other side to get the ball back.

When Okada Akio ran to him, Lei Yin finally made his move.

His speed was no way inferior to Akio Okada’s, as he ran to the other side of the basket. Feeling a sense of crisis, the No. 5 player immediately picked up his pase, thinking of stopping him.

When Lei Yin was in front of the three-point line, he suddenly stopped. Okada Akio quickly stopped in front of him, trying to stop him from shooting.

But Lei Yin didn’t shoot right away, instead he sneered at Okada Akio, and then he flashed through from his side, and threw the ball into the basket.

The process was simple, yet almost nobody could clearly see how Lei Yin flash through Okada Akio was blocking him, even Okada Akio himself couldn’t see it clearly, even though he was in front of him, and yet he had all of a sudden appeared right behind him.

Okada Akio wasn’t able to react til the ball went into the basket.

“Nothing special.” Facing Akio Okada’s astonished eyes, Lei Yin said softly.

Asshole! Okada Akio was furious. He vowed in his heart, never to let this guy get any more points.

And at this time Coach Tanimura who was acting as the referee actually felt something unusual, even he hadn’t clearly saw how this fellow dodged Okada. He has been a coach for many years, but even he couldn’t tell what had happened.

It was the second player, Lei Yin’s, turn to attack, he walked slowly from his side, and brought the ball to the opposite side of the court. Seeing Okada Akio waiting for him to come at the three-point line, Lei Yin suddenly made a move that made everyone here shocked.

His action in other people’s perspective can only be described as amateurish, as they watch how he shot the ball in the basket. But that wasn’t the surprising part, the thing that was truly unacceptable was the fact that he was shooting from the middle of the court.

Everyone was waiting to see how the ball would fall in vain, but the next scene made everyone unable to believe their eyes.

*Swoosh*

No matter how they looked at it, it seemed like a desperate shot, but unexpectedly the ball didn’t even hit the board, and instead went into the ring. That was a shot made from the middle of the court.

No Way? Everyone had the same thought when they saw this scene.

Seeing this, the basketball club captain’s jaw almost fell down, and he couldn’t help but want Lei Yin in the team.

At that moment, the whole stadium became very quiet, almost everyone there knew a little bit about basketball, as they looked at the, calm looking, monster who had shot the ball from the middle of the court.

*Beep* After the whistle was blown, everyone finally reacted and pondered for a bit, but nobody could regarded the competition to be a one-sided game any longer.

Because the game didn’t have any time for rests, the game continued.

Seven minutes later, astonishment appeared on all eyes.

Because, there were only two people playing, Coach Tanimura couldn’t use the rule ‘of holding the ball for 30 seconds’.

The audience, who were watching the game, began to wonder which one was the real basketball player.

Until now, Okada Akio looked like an amateur. He had even said, to Lei Yin before the game, that he would score seven points in less than a minute.

And, he was the one that was the representative of Teikyou University in every basketball game, and was also the one in charge of making the team win. He was 1.86 meters tall, possessing a handsome look, he had also kept his hair quite long, the female students called Okada Akio [The Prince of Basketball], but contrary to the name he still couldn’t score a single basket.

<TL: This was the part that was cut off>

Any person who watched Okada Akio’s basketball game wouldn’t think that he was lacking and instead think of him as an outstanding player.

 

However, such a well-respected player was unexpectedly unable to score a single point in this game, people could hardly believe what they were seeing.

 

However, this unimaginable scene was actually really happening in front of their eyes.

Everyone could see, that so long as the man was holding the ball, Okada Akio wouldn’t be able to successfully steal the ball away from the guy.

 

If Okada Akio were to stand on guard at the restricted area or the three-point line, that person like before, would stand outside the three-point line or at the middle of the court, and accurately shoot the ball as if it was done with magic.

 

And when he’s in front of Okada Akio, he would simply feint and with amazing speed attempt break through the basketball club’s elite, in a very relaxed and quirky way, and then going straight to the bottom of the basket, he would shoot the ball and without a doubt go in the basket. His action was so enchanting, making every person who knew about basketball have a kind of emotional feeling.

 

It was now Okada Akio’s turn to attack.

 

Okada Akio wasn’t a three-point shooter, he was a player who was good at breaking through the bottom of the basket, that’s why he didn’t dare to shoot the ball at the three-point like just like Lei Yin. If the guy accidentally caught the ball, he absolutely didn’t have the confidence to steal the ball away from him. The several plays before had totally extinguish his self-confidence. So he could only try to block Lei Yin, and then breakthrough the bottom of the basket to shoot the ball.

However, not once could he do it.

 

He didn’t know why, but so long as the person was in front of him, without knowing when, the ball he was holding would suddenly disappear and appear in the other guy’s hand.

 

Feint, steal, block, he tried everything he knew, but the result was still the same. He still couldn’t figure out when the guy had snatched the ball from him, he couldn’t even see when the ball had disappeared from his hand.

 

After the ball was stolen from his hands once again, Okada Akio helplessly looked at the guy making another basket.

 

He wanted to go back, but was too tired to move any further.

 

He didn’t think that just one game would be so tiring. Without any team-mate to pass the ball to, be it offensive or defensive, he had to do everything on his own. In just less than 10 minutes, he had to constantly run back and forth in the basketball court.

 

If it was just running he would have still been fine, but he felt pain as he was frustrated in himself who is unable to beat the guy, this frustration made him feel more and more tired. He didn’t know whether it was because he was too tired, but Okada Akio had a feeling that he was just having a dream and everything that was happening wasn’t’ real.

 

From the very beginning, the entire basketball court had been very quiet, one could only hear the sound of the ball hitting the floor and sound of the two players running, as well as the sound of the audience at the second floor of the basketball court, Okada Akio was running out of breath, unceasingly gasping for air just like a person with asthma.

 

Perhaps, this really is a dream, how could there be such a monster like this exist. Okada Akio smiled somewhat nervously, and had completely forgotten that it was his turn to attack.

 

“Okada, pull yourself together.” Coach Tanimura loudly called out at the side.

 

Hearing his coach’s voice, Okada Akio immediately woke up.

 

Dead old man, because of your stupid proposition the matter had turned into this. Okada Akio glared at Coach Tanimura filled with hatred, he then picked up the ball from the ground.

 

“Unfortunately, I only need one more basket. It seems like you have no more chances.”

 

Hearing what Lei Yin had said, Okada Akio’s heart tightened.  The game’s almost done?

He looked up and looked around the audience, and discovered them looking at him with an expression he had never seen before.

 

Bastards, I don’t need your sympathy. After reading their eyes, he immediately understood what they were thinking, making Okada Akio almost crazy.

 

Gennai Masashi, I won’t let you feel any better. Returning his focus towards the guy, Okada Akio immediately rushed towards him, as he dribbled the ball while he run past him.

 

At this time, this was the only idea that could occur to him, since running through him wasn’t going to work, then he could just run over him. And if he doesn’t get out of the way, he would get injured because Okada Akio’s height advantage.

 

Looking at the No.5 player running straight towards him, Lei Yin didn’t move. When Okada Akio was half a meter away from him, Lei Yin made a move, taking a step to the side he moved out of the way, and then with his hands he shoved the ball and grasped it. In the eyes of experts, this kind of plan was flawed, and was tantamount to death.

 

“Bastard!” Okada Akio realized that the ball was taken away from him yet again, he quickly run to catch up with him. He refused to lose, and would even make a foul just to stop him.

 

Suddenly, he discovered Lei Yin looked behind sneering at him. At this moment, they still didn’t know that they would see an incredible sight.

 

From the two-point line, they saw Lei Yin suddenly jump, Okada Akio had never seen anyone jump so high. He then saw the man with the ball in his hand dunk the ball straight into the basket.

“Peng!” After the loud noise, everyone felt that there never was cut off.

 

The audience went quiet, one could only hear the sound of the ball continuously bouncing on the floor.

 

In this silence, Lei Yin suddenly picked up the ball.

 

“Okada Akio.”

 

Hearing his name, Okada Akio subconsciously looked towards the direction of the sound.

But just when he looked over to his direction of the sound, he noticed a circular object flying towards. When he had reacted, it was already too late for him to dodge.

 

*Pow* Okada Akio’s face that made a lot of girls fascinated, was severely hit by the ball, as he felt an intense pain on his face.

 

“What do you want?” The first to react was the basketball captain, who had immediately come out and went in front of Lei Yin.

 

“Can’t you see? I don’t mind demonstrating again.” Lei Yin shrugged.

 

“You’ve gone too far, you’ve already won, what do you still want?” The basketball captain was angry.

 

“I won, so I have the right to do this. Don’t forget about the proposition that the coach said before.”

“But I also said that you’re not allowed to make trouble here.” Coach Tanimura said as he was taking care of Okada Akio.

 

“Excuse me, I forgot.” With that, Lei Yin walked towards Okada Akio who was lying on the ground, clutching his nose as he left.

 

“If you dare do it again, don’t blame me for being impolite.” The basketball captain shouted.

 

“I don’t know when you have even been polite to me.” Lei Yin glared at him, and quickly moved forward.

<TL: Part 3 done by subudai>

“Bastard.” The captain could not stand it anymore, and punched him in the face.

When his punch was about to land, a hand suddenly held his fist. Then, a terrible pain suddenly extended out from his hand.

“Ah!” Never received such a severe pain made this two meters high man bent his waist.

Lei Yin let go of his hand and walked toward Akio Okada, condescendingly looked at him.

Coach Tanimura immediately stood up and looked at him.

“Haven’t you trouble enough? Do you want to be expelled from the college?”

Lei Yin suddenly laughed, “Do you think I am going to hit him? I am sorry, but you are wrong. I just want to say a few words to him.”

With that, he said toward Akio Okada on the ground: “You go tell that woman, if she dares lay her hands on my sister, I will make her life as good as dead.”

Akio Okada very bitterly looked at him.

Lei Yin was pleased with this outcome, disgracing him in front of so many people was indeed more satisfying than beating him.

Lei Yin did not bother him anymore, and said to the middle-aged man: “I am sorry, Mr. Coach, for borrowing your place, if you’ll excuse me.” With that, he turned around and walked out of the Basketball Club.

Everyone looked at his back in silence as he walked farther and farther away.
