A few days ago.
"More!" yelled Black Star, raising his bowl, and giving Maka a grin, pieces of ramen still stuck in his teeth. He was in Maka's house, who was throwing a good luck party to the duo that was Black Star and Tsubaki, since they had been invited to be part of a group called the Justice League. Black Star's demon weapon partner, Tsubaki, let out a long sigh at the boy's lack of manner.
Maka rolled her eyes, picking up the pot and placing another serving of ramen in Black Star's bowl. He didn't even say thanks, and quickly began to devour the food, eating with the speed of a cheetah. "Thank you for this party, Maka." Tsubaki said, bowing her head. Maka smiled back, serving the other guests of the party: her partner, Soul Eater, Death the Kid (and his two partners, Patty and Liz) and even Doctor Stein, who was too busy dividing the ramen into specific section. "And the food is surprisingly delicious!"
"You can say that again," Soul replied. "It's a surprise that Maka can cook at all!
" A minute later, Soul was on the floor, having received one of Maka's trademark chops. "No problems, Tsubaki. I just wonder: why did they choose you two?" She asked, placing the pot on the table.
"Isn't it obvious?!" Black Star interrupted Tsubaki, his mouth full of ramen. "They need someone of my level to make that team the greatest team in the universe! Of course, they are all going to be a stepping stone on my path to surpass God! Ha-ha!"
"It'll be a miracle if they don't give up after realizing who they have for a teammate." Death the Kid commented, poking his ramen with his finger.
"What was THAT?! You dare make fun of the great Black Star?! I could beat you in a duel with my hands strapped to my back, my eyes folded, and wearing shoes made out of metal!"
Tsubaki sighed as she watched Black Star and Death the Kid start a shouting contest- which ended with the two receiving Maka chops that left them lying on the floor right next to Soul. Death the Kid had a point: making Black Star co-operate with the team was going to be a really difficult task...
Tsubaki entered the Justice Hall with her fellow team members, and watched the introductions with palpable excitement. Once it was her turn, she gave them a long, formal bow, and began. "My name is Tsubaki Nakatsukasa... it's such an honor to be part of this great team, and I hope we can work together without any problems. My Meis—"
Before she could properly introduce her partner- that wasn't there- one of the windows of the Justice Hall was busted open as a kid jumped through it (yelling "YA-HOOO!"), landing right in the middle of the oval table- surprisingly not breaking anything. After his landing, Black Star stood up, a grin on his face, and pointed at himself with his thumb. "No need to worry anymore! Black Star is here! The man who will surpass God is now part of your team! And don't worry, I can give autographs to everyone
!" he said, stepping down from the table with pride.
"... and this is my Meister... Black Star." Tsubaki said, an awkward smile on her face, almost as if she was mentally saying sorry for my partner's behavior
. "He's also very excited to work with all of you."
"What are you talking about, Tsubaki? They
are going to work with me!
Don't switch it around!"
