Amai Douki ha Koi no Memai
Akira and Ami This is a very cute, sugary sweet story ^_^; The title is a bit complicated to translate into English, but "amai" means "sweet", "douki" means "heartbeat", "koi" means "love" and "memai" means "faint or dizzy spell". So um... there you go ^_^;

Amai Douki ha Koi no Memai was published in the January 1999 issue of Ribon.

Overall plot:
The heroine in this story is called Ami and she was born with a weak immune system and she is also very physically fragile too, it seems. She is looked out for by her older brother, the good looking class rep (he doesn't have a name though ^_^;). However, she's had an operation so she isn't as bad as she used to be. Everybody always says she should sit out during sports class and everyone is always looking after her a bit too much. The only guy who doesn't do that to Ami is Akira, who Ami has a crush on. He tells Ami that she should do what she wants to do, not what everyone tells her to do and if she's had an operation and isn't sick any more than why worry?

Ami joins Akira's basketball club, but keeps it a secret from her brother because if he ever found out she played sport then he would forbid her from continuing it. So she plays basketball in secret, until one day some girls accidentally tell her brother that she always plays basketball with Akira after school. She gets found out and is told not to play any more. Ami tells Akira reluctantly that she promised her brother. Akira gets annoyed that Ami is always saying my brother this, my brother that and can't she think for herself?Ami

Ami's brother then confronts Akira, telling him to butt out of Ami's life. They're having a heated argument and Ami finds out. All the guys are watching from the window and one of the guys knocks the window frame, which is broken and falls towards Akira. Ami finds them and she pushes Akira out of the way just in time. She grazed her knee, but both of them are fine. Her brother says that she is injured again, her knee being grazed, but Ami says that she doesn't care because doing something is better than nothing. Akira and Ami both confess that they like each other and even though her brother is awfully jealous and wants to protect her sister, things turn out happy in the end ^_^
