About : Winner plays for the varsity water polo team for the YG Institute of Music. When they play their rivals, EXO of SM Academy, Winner is confronted by players that not only rival them in skill but also in love.
Seungyoon threw his bag down on the pool deck, squinting from the glare of the sun off the water. Taehyun followed close behind, setting his bag down next to his hyung's, holding one hand to his forehead, shading his eyes.
"SM Academy today?" he asked. Seungyoon nodded, casting a glare over to the other team.
The other team was gathering on the other side of the pool, clad in matching windbreakers. Secured on their heads were the blue swim caps of the visiting team, passing along the line of caps until everyone had their correct number. Seungyoon looked at Taehyun, making a face.
"Pussies," he said.
The boys wrapped their towels around their waists and rushed to change quickly, shuttling pants and briefs from under the towel and replacing them with the black speedo that was their uniform.
The boys from each team glared across the pool, eyeing their competition. Seungyoon threw his towel back into his bag and collected his swim cap; lucky number 7, securing it loosely on his head. 7 had been his number since he was a freshman, when he first started playing varsity halfway through the season. Now he was team captain and easily the most valuable player on the team.

The other team was in the water as well, swimming laps and running through their drills, not an ounce of nervousness showing.
Seungyoon caught the eye of one player, a brown haired guy leading the lane, as he turned his head to breathe. He held his glare, glaring intently. The swimmer turned his head back underwater and sprinted the rest of the way to the wall. Seungyoon scoffed at the blatant display of aggression, feeling his anticipation for the game to start escalate.
Soon, the seven players were lined up on the wall facing the other seven players.
Taehyun was in the goal, wearing red goalie cap with a white number one on either side. He was already doing the eggbeater, treading nervously. Seungyoon was the first driver, being the faster sprinter in the team. He glared over to the other side at the brown haired guy in SM's first driver position. His cap sporting the same number as his.
The referee blew...
