Synopsis

The beautiful, genuine pearls we lust after belong in a chain... because that is how they bind our hearts. Hisa, the newest manager of her high school's soccer club, has a secret: a part-time job. If anyone knew, she would either have to quit the job she needs to survive or the sport that she loves. Sakyou, one of the team's most talented and anti-social members, finds out about Hisa's secret... so it's a good thing for Hisa that the handsome and high-handed Sakyou wants to keep her close to him! Or is it?

This manga is not something you want to read if you like a dramatic build up to the romance. It is nothing like Kaichou wa-Maid Sama! or any of those building up the love. It is more like teenage attraction.
After just a few days of meeting each other, the two do it on a table....No sense of romanticism there. Also, this type of sexual thing is in every chapter.
There was really no plot and the title has nothing to do with the story. This story is amusing when it comes to the soccer players' reactions to knowing the relationship of the main characters, ...

The bestfriend falls inlove with the girl and the guy shes known for awhile gets jelous and tells them pretty much if they dident break up he would quit the team so we go through this whole thing of accepting the ...
