71 CHAPTER 71: THE JANITOR, BALUT VENDOR, AND A DRUG ADDIC
Back at the school's sepak takraw courts, two teams are already facing each other in an intense match.
"Second set! Love, all!" The referee shouted the score which means that the game has already started a while ago.
"Waaah!" One of the players in the service circle made a strong spike serve and was received perfectly by the other side. The receiving team fought back with a quick set and a rolling spike! The ball rallied twice before touching the ground and caused the players to shout in rejoice while the team that lost the score also cheered themselves up to prepare for the incoming ball serve.
Shouts and cheers would be heard from time to time as the game progressed.
There are at least fifty people standing around waiting for their turn to do the try-out as well while some students who have just arrived are also spectating the match nearby. One of the reasons that the event is more lively is because of the presence of Santi who is sitting on a bench observing the matches while being surrounded by two tall men standing by his side. Santi's eyes would eventually scan the crowd seemingly waiting for someone.
At this moment, Chiko arrived together with Gantes and Yang behind him. The trio gasped for air as they went straight towards the registration area where Mr. Gila was waiting. Chiko is now wearing the ussual black steel-toed boots, blue shorts, and white t-shirt and has an excited look on his face while Yang came in with his white sports wear. Gantes on the other hand is still wearing the school uniform and a black long pants with curios looks at the game. This is obviously his first time attempting to do sports.
"Look at that!"
"Are they here to do the tryouts as well?"
"Seems like it. But just take a look at the composition of their team! A balut vendor, a school janitor and a drug addict wanted to tryout for sepak takraw?! Are these people lost?!"
"Those guys are really idiots for declining Santi's invitation just to pick up a dopehead."
A lot of the waiting players saw the unnusual team that have just arrived and immediately started mocking them. Despite the fact that Chiko and Yang have good talents in sepak takraw, but the dopehead looking guy is obviously a newbie judging from its curios gazes.
Santi on the otherside was surprised and frowned after seeing the trio. These people have obviously taken his attention these past few days and he never expected the three to form a team for this tryout. He felt very offended especially for Chiko after the latter declined his team invitation. He has never invited anyone from the past few years because no players have picked his attention as Chiko and Yang did.
Suddenly, Santi smirked as an idea popped in his head. Considering that these guys doesnt respect him as he should deserve, then it is time he showed them what he really is made of.
