I was born with defective eyes, just because it runs on my family.
i am afraid with balls and i am not good at all with any sport.
Speed, stamina, strength, or anything else you can name it, i don’t have any of them.
I always be the last in the PE class.
Endless training, countless coaching are not working for me.
Stayed up late learning how to do gymnastic, practicing volleyball until my hands are numb.
Not working. What a hopeless girl.
One day when i was on the fifth grade, i walked to the nearby bookstore and there is one manga.
Its cover is not a good one, and the artwork seems rather ugly.
However, i asked my mama to bought it for me and she agreed.
And that book, changed my life forever.
I never played this sport before, but this manga’s representation is really good. It feels like i am really in the court and playing a really good match. I imagined how good it is to be one of its player and people cheering for me. I also learned from lot of its characters, that every great people whatever their subject is, it is not naturally acquired but from hard training and else.
Cliche, but it is really inspiring.
I don’t have tall or strong body, i don’t have normal eyesight, my other senses aren’t that good.
But i still have this strong mentality. Mental that won’t allow me to lose.
And with that, i can build this strong character of mine. Not allowing anything else to see a weak side of mine.
Randomly writing this after re-read a few latest chapters of my first love. It’s been about 9 years since the first time we meet and i never get tired of this.
I’m not learning how to summon dinosaurs and sent people flying with racket and tennis ball tho.
